DO YOU WANT IT?
Last week we discoursed at some length
on the time being opportune for Gulf County
to do something to attract the tourism business
to our county by the construction of a park and
public fish landing on property that they will
acquire right soon from the State Fish and Game
Commission ajdoining both the main highway
and. ap arm of the famous Dead Lakes. The
county commission, if they are foresighted; can
".attract a large tourist business to our county if
they get on the ball.
We haven't heard much talk from the peo-
ple who foot the bill in the county one way or
another and it is an issue that we should be
vitally concerned about. Most people are prone
to have no interest in anything unless it"helps
them directly. The trend of thinking is prob-
ably that the project will only help the business
men in Gulf County, through increased poten-
tial customers. This is true. But what the aver-
age person doesn't see is that increased trade
also helps him in that it aids local business to
expand and give better service and also gives
an added incentive to your local governments
to create more diversion and recreation in their
respective communities to further attract people
to the area and to build their respective ,rm
munities up and grow instead of just remaining
at a standstill. And don't forget, local people
would have year-round use of such facilities.
"Now how can a little old park and fish
landing start all this" you say. Just like we
said above. If a good place is offered tourists
for' recreation the word will get around and
pretty soon there will be more tourists and visi-
tors than any one place can take care of-thence
the need for growth. Such growth is entirely
possible. South Florida had no mor6 if as much
to offer as this area before they started PRO-
VIDING for potential tourists until today they

thern part of the state that we could well have

Home Outdoor Space Now
Planned for Family Use
TIhi Baok %#d Finds Space for Vegetable Plot, Patle, Flowe
Border and Play Lawn for Games.
Before the last war the purpose
of landscape planting in small
home grounds was considered
to be the creation of a pictur-
esque garden, formal or informal
according to taste.
Today, emphasis is upon family
use of the outdoor area of the
home. The "outdoorliving room"
which was a secondary feature
of pre-war gardens has been
expanded to take over the whole
area in the rear of small mod-
ern homes. Emphasis is placed
upon its use for rest, play or the
practice of a hobby.
Instead of priority being given
to developing the "garden pic-
ture," the backyard is now laid
out for use by parents .and chil-
dren, and garden planting then
arranged to decorate the grounds
without interfering with that use.
There are three features which
are popular, a terrace or patio
for outdoor dining, or other so-
cial activities; a vegetable gar-
den near the kitchen, where
garden-fresh vegetables can be
harvested, then cooked before
their flavor is lost, and a play
area, usually a lawn, which may
be surrounded by a flower bor-
In such a layout on the aver-
age lot there is not room for
many trees, shrubbery borders,
or hedges. If the use of the out-
door home is to be successful,
shade must be avoided, except
on the terrace or patio, which
are intended for rest.
Overplanting of small home
grounds with trees and shrubs is
the most serious error that can
be made. In a few years these
plants may interfere not only
with the recreational use of the
grounds, but by competition for
light and root area, they may
destroy flower and vegetable gar-
dens .and .eventually, destroy
In front of the house the "new
look" in architecture provided
by modern houses built without
basements and hugging the
ground, calls for a new look is
the landscaping planting in front
Foundation planting is a meth-
od of making houses set tod
high, seem lower than they are
by "tieing the house to the
ground." But modern one-story
houses hug the ground already
and do not need to appear low-
er. If any planting is done in
front of them it should be low
and should make the house look
wide, by emphasizing the hori-
zontal line. Small houses- espe.
cially need this effect.
Flower. borders accomplish
this purpose. They relieve thq
somewhat severe lines which
prevail in houses primarily de,
signed for the comfort of the
occupants rather than for out-
Front yard flower gardens pro-
vide an attractive view to enjoy
from picture windows. Architects
often arrange for two level plant-
ings, one on the ground and one
in boxes raised to a point just
below the windows.
When flowerse~are planted in
beds each of a single color, and
all in harmony, the effect is in
keeping with modern ideas of
design an-i decoration.
New Chevrolet Trucks...
do more work per day... more work per dollar!
You save hours on the road.
Thanks to, new high-compression
power, you can maintain faster
schedules without driving at higher
maximum speeds. Increased accel-
eration and hill-climbing ability let
you save time where it counts.
You save time on deliveries.
With new truck Hydra-Mitic trans-
mission, you save time at every
delivery stop. And you can forget
about clutching and shifting for
;good! It's optional at extra cost on
V2-, /4- and 1-ton Chevrolet trucks.
You save extra trips. That's be-
cause of the extra load space you
get in the new Advance-Design
bodies. New pick-up bodies are
deeper, new stake and platform
bodies are wider and longer. Also,
they're set lower for easier loading.
You save with lower upkeep,
too. Extra chassis strength saves
you money on maintenance. There
are heavier axle shafts in two-ton
models bigger clutches in light-
and heavy-duty models ... stronger
frames in all models.
You save on operating costs.
New power saves you money every.
mile! The "Thriftmaster 235" en-
gine, the "Loadmaster 235" and
MOST TRUSTWORTHY TRUCKS ON ANY JOB!--Chevrolet
the "Jobmaster 261" (optional on
2-ton models at extra cost) deliver
increased operating economy.
And your savings start the day
you buy. In fact, they start with
the low price you pay and con-
tinue over the miles. Chevrolet is
America's lowest-priced i line of
trucks. It's also the truck that has
a traditionally higher trade-in value.
Come in and see all the --
wonderful new things you -'- ''I
get in America's number p .' ,r.

to give you all the money-
