the pine lumber industry, as well
as the history of our pine forests
for almost 300 years.
"To the homebuilder, southern
pine is the shelter that provides
protection from the most severe
weather," says the book. "To the
sportsman it is the forest in which
he hunts. To the poet it is 'the
spires of nature's cathedral that
reach toward heaven.' To the car-
penter it is the raw material that
he can shape with ease.
"Southern pine means jobs for
hundreds of thousands of men and
women. It is the backbone of the
South's second largest industry. It
is the cash crop that is adding to
the economic growth of the South."
Further along, it says: "The gol-
den age of the American forest in-
dustry has just ,begun. Look ahead
to the industrial future of the South
when all its forest lands are pro-
ducing full crops of wood and em-
ployment and carrying their poten-

Is To Be On Loose
Three Weeks In July
Issues S O S for Aides To Assist
In Tracking Down
By LILLIAN F. McNAIR
The "health detective" will be on
the loose three weeks next month
when two trailers from the Florida
State Board of Health move into
Gulf county on July 8 for a multi-
phasic or combined health survey.
The "health detective" needs help
and is using this means of issuing
an S O S for aides in tracking down
diseases such as tuberculosis, dia-
'betes, anemia and syphilis. Many
volunteer workers will be needed
for the great undertaking and sev-
eral have already volunteered their
services. An average of three peo-
ple will be needed per hour to
register those wishing to take ad-
vantage of the opportunity afforded
them in the chest X-ray and the
blood test. It is expected that the
trailers will be open to the public
at least five hours each day, and
possibly more in some sections of
the county. A volunteer worker will
not be expected to work any longer
than he or she desires.
Chairmen of each community have
volunteered their services and have
accepted t he responsibilities for
conducting a successful survey. The
"health detective" would like for
those who will offer their services

said that since the state has taken
over most of the roads in recent
years, the county has to maintain
but about 31 miles of road, and he
couldn't see why it should cost in
the neighborhood of $3200 per mile

Meet To Talk Over
County Tax Boost
Are Opposed To Increased
Budget As Contemplated
Getting wind of the fact that the
county commissioners are prepar-
ing to submit a considerably in-
creased budget for operation of the
county during 1951-52, a group of
local property owners and business
men met Tuesday evening in the
office of the Florida Power Cor-
poration to talk over the matter
and see what could be done about
it, all of them being of the opinion
that rather than boost operating
costs that there should be a cut.
B. W. Eells, selected as chairman
of the meeting, submitted copies of
the proposed budget, together with
operating costs in previous years,
pointing out that the $241,719 pro-
posed budget as set up amounted
to $59,034 over the 1951-52 budget
of $182,685, which required a mill-
age of 16.5 on the county's $5,477,-
405 tax roll. He pointed out that, if
the tax roll remains the same, this
would necessitate a boost of ap-
proximately 10.5 mills to raise the
necessary funds, or 27 mills.

Senator Smathers Asks
That Grave of Osceola
Be Returned To Florida
Senator George A. Smathers has
asked South Carolina to let the
grave of Osceola, Seminole Indian
war chief, be transferred from Ft.
Moultrie, S. C., to Florida, saying
he was informed the the Ft. Moul-
trie cemetery- is being demolished
and that a descendant of Osceola
is "most anxious" to move the re-
mains to Florida.
ISmathers made public a letter in
which Larry Mike Osceola of Mi-
ami, a-great-great-grandson of the
Seminole chief, formally claimed
his ancestor's remains.
Osceola, who recalled that the
Americans took his ancestor "un-
der a flag of truce," said he was ap-
pealing direct to Smathers because

Our Country 0 Right or Wrong
THAT BEAR IS IN AGAIN
Do you remember that U. S. plane that was
.shot down by the Russians in the Baltic Sea
two years ago? A late bulletin announces that
the Swedes have found five Latvian fishermen
whbo witnessed the attack.
This news comes on the heels of the Swedish
rejection of the Soviet charge that the Swedish
air force' Catalina, shot. down by the Russians
last week, had violated Soviet territory, and had-
opened fire first on the Red MIG's.
In a stiff new note, Sweden stood by her in-
itial protest to the kremlin, demanding punish-
ument of the guilty fliers and indemnities. The
unarmed Catalina was on a rescue mission,
searching for survivors of another Swedish plane
.that disappeared over the mid-Baltic.
Noted for the diplomatic dexterity that en-
abled her to remain neutral through both World
'Wars, Sweden's present attitude and the rising
:anger of her citizens over this "outrage," has
European capitals buzzing and, in the opinion
of the editor of The Star, may be the prelude to
World War III.
And now Washington, too, is in the act. Will
we, in the face of this new evidence on the fate
of our own fliers, display as much spirit as
Sweden? Perhaps Mr. Acheson, now in Europe,
had better stop off in Stockholm.

THE LAW NOBODY WROTE
The Curry County Times of Clovis, N. M., re-
cently ran an editorial pointing to some of the
tremendous and expensive administrative prob-
lems the price control regulations have imposed
on business. At the end it said: "Somehow the
threat of inflation and skyrocketing prices sort
of fades in comparison with the mess artificially
maintained levels have precipitated.
"Anyhow, we haven't heard anything about
the law of supply and demand being repealed.
Until it is, we think it's pretty unlikely anyone in
Washington can dream up something better."
Nobody wrote the lawv of supply and demand,
no legislature enacted it, no eager-beaver gov-
ernnment people enforce it. It's just a law of na-
ture, and it has governed economies of the world
since time began. Every effort to tamper with it
or replace it with man-made economic law has
created only confusion-and, in some cases, na-
That law makes it certain that manufacturers
will produce the things people want-in the
'quantity and quality wanted. It also makes it
certain that our retail stores, from the smallest
one-man shop to the biggest national chain, will
stock those articles-and sell them at a price
which is held to the lowest practical figure by
No one has come up with anything even re-
motely as successful as the law of supply and
demand in centuries. It's not probable that even
our present-day deep thinkers in government
will be able to. And on top of that, it doesn't
cost the taxpayers a red cent. How many of you
know that the Jacksonville office of the price
stabilization board has a payroll alone of $790,-
What a small boy saves for a rainy day is apt
to be mischief.
If you want a real candid opinion, question a
girl about eight years old.
The biggest problem these days is not how to
make money, but how to keep it.

TRIM YOUR COSTS 3 WAYS WITH DODGE TRUCKS
"We keep complete individual records of each of our
trucks and have found that Dodge is by far the lowest
cost to operate. In fact, our Dodge costs us .6 of a
cent less per ton-mile to operate than our next closest
truck! This difference must be the result of Dodge's
many economy features.
"Furthermore, we've found that our Dodge 'Job-
Rated' truck will haul a full load of sand or gravel up
hills that several of our other trucks won't take. Our
next truck will be a Dodge."
S There's a Dodge truck that's "Jo-Rated" to
fit your job-1- ton through 4 tons.

Staff Cut To Grant
Cost-of-Living Pay Raise Given To
Keep More Efficient Employes
Leaving for Better Positions
Approximately 10% of the staff
of the state game and fresh water
fish commission will be laid off in
order to grant a cost-of-living sal-
ary increase to the lower-salaried
personnel. according to Director B.,
McLauchlin said that the reduc-
tion would mean cutting off an es-
timated 25 persons, including wild-
life officers, secretaries and fish
and game -biologists. .He said the"
pay raise was to keep the more ef-
ficient employes from leaving for
better paying positions.
Members of the commission re-
cently voted a 10% pay increase for
agency personnel now earning less
than $300 a month. The increase
will mean that the average salary
will be raised from $237 to approxi-
mately $260 a month.
Personnel being laid off will be
those with the least amount of ser-
vice and will take into considera-
tion local situations, where several
counties have three or more war-
dens. McLauchlin said that the re-
duction would still give all coun-
ties an average of two men in the
law enforcement 'branch, depending
on their size and needs.
McLauchlin added that law en-
forcement would not be curtailed
in efficiency because of the large
number of honorary wildlife offi-
cers that will be named in each
county within the next few months.
These will be sportsmen who will
have all the authority of a wildlife
officer, including a commission and
arresting powers, and it ig expected
that the enforcement division will
be strengthened considerably by

Apalachicola's exports decreased

Decide To Build Canal
'During this winter the work on
the St. Joseph & Iola Railroad was
pushed steadily on. It was com-
pleted some time during 1839. Al-
though the exact date of the open-
ing cannot be ascertained, it was
probably as late as October, for the
advertisement announcing its open-
ing appeared in The Times of Octo-
Even before completion of the rail-

an old one of 1835-the construc-
tion of a canal from Lake Wimico

Joseph have already become con-
vinced" that the few railroad to lola
