Dunn & Bradstreet Says
Gulf County Has Grown
Each January business concerns
in all parts of the United States re-
ceive from Dun & Bradstreet re-
quests ror their annual financial
statements. This year the number
of requests going out nation-wide
will ,exceed three million.
The growth of Gulf County is re-
flected in statistics just received
by the credit reporting firm. Clyde
L. i- ouk, District Manager at Tack-
sonvilie, which office covers this
area, says that there will be more
re(quitts for financial statements
made of business concrens in Gulf
County than ever before. The Gulf
County section of the current issue
of 'he Dun & Bradstreet Reference
Book contains 127 local names, com-
prising manufacturers, wholesalers
and retailers. It does not include
rome of the service and "profes-
sional" businesses, such as barber
and beauty shops, real estate and
stock brokers. Thus the figure for
businesses in Gulf County would
actually be higher than the 127
quota above. In 1946, the number
-of listed names totaled only 79, an
indicated' increase for this year of
61 per cent.
'During 1955, Dun & Bradstreet
estimates they will be required to
-make about 75 percent changes in
the listings of business enterprises
in Gulf County. These changes will
result from adding the names of
new businesses, 'and deleting the
names of those who have discon-
tinued; as well as accounting for
changes in ownership, trade names
and credit ratings.
Four automobile accidents mar-
red the Christmas week end for the
vicinity of Port St. Joe. One serious
injury came out of the four wrecks
when Jurrien (Jerry) Diepen lost
his right leg in a collision on High-
way 98 directly in front of Bob's
Wonder Bar Saturday night.
According to the Highway Pa-
trol, Diepen was aiding Oliver J.

Watch For Old Man Accident
Just about everyone agrees that it is a fine
thing to celebrate the coming year in a jubilant
manner. But here is a cautionary word: Don't
let your exuberance rob you of your mental facul-
ties because tomorrow is another day; a rather
nice day to still be alive, stated Asher Frank, Di-
rector of the Florida Safety Council.
A large part of New Year's Eve accidents
can be traced to over-indulgence. Drivers en-
route to another party or enroute home from the
final party of the evening are the ones who are
placing themselves and others in jeopardy be-
cause they are in no condition to be behind the
We are again calling on bartenders, cafe
owners and night club operators not to serve
drinks to those who obviously had enough.
If you are the host, urge guests under the
influence to leave their cars and go home in
taxis if necessary. Hosts can thereby make sure
there will be no regrets on New Year's Day, no
accidents to mar an otherwise happy occasion.
New Year's Eve Night is a dangerous night
and it should be treated as such by everyone on
the highways and byways. Even though one
individual may keep complete control of himself
and be perfectly capable of driving home safely,
the fact that there are others who will not have
been so cautious will place a double burden on
the safe driver. He will have to drive for every
other person on the road this night.
Be sure that while you are welcoming the
New Year on December 31 that Old Man Acci-
dent isn't celebrating with you.
In his first press conference since his return
from the NOTA Council meetings in Paris, Sec-
retary of State Jonh Foster Dulles implied strong-
ly that any war in Europe from here on would
be an atomic war. But the rules will be differ-
ent at least for the Western powers.
US forces in Europe are presently equipped
with atomic weapons such as the 280 millimeter
cannon and the Matador pilotless plane, and
will have still others as they become available.
Military commanders can plan the use of these
weapons, but authoirty to use them must come
hfom heads of civil government. In other words,
the battery commander in the field can point
and train his guns and perhaps load them -
but Washington (in the case of US troops) must
pull the lanyard. We undesrtand, however,
that the routine of atomic authorization for such
weapons as these has now been streamlined so
that in an emergency a commanding officer can
obtain this permission almost instantly.
But these are what are known as tactical
weapons, which, Mr. Dulles emphasized are in
a different class from strategic atomic weapons.
And while the firing of any atomic weapon is a
'grave decision", and not for soldiers to make;
the strategic use of nuclear devices for mass
destruction, Mr. Dulles said, could not be antici-
pated. Such questions would have to be con-
sidered as situations arose. We do not know
whether such decisions would involve tossing a
coin, holding a meeting of the Security Council
and/or the NATO Council or a two-thirds vote
When Mr. Dulles says that the report of the
Paris Council meeting "shows for the first time
the means of developing a forward strategy
which could be relied upon to protect Western
Europe from invasion," he is uttering brave
words. And when he adds that under the new
unity "if ... aggression should be attempted,'it
would be thrown back at the threshold", he seems
to be under the impression that the enemy would
also play under the new NATO rules.
The one clear certainty that emerges from
between the lines of Mr. Dulles' report to the
people is that civilization has created a Franken-
stein of which all responsible governments stand
in mortal terror.

HAPPY NEW YEAR The new
year starts Saturday, and the new
session of Congress starts Wed-
nesday. We would like to wish the
mmebers of the Florida Congress-
ional Delegation the best of every-
tihing for 1955. During the 83rd
Congress, our delegation was a
100% democratic group trying to
do a job for Florida in a republican
controlled Congress. 1955 will be
different. With the exception of
Florida's lone republican, Bill Cra-
rner, of St. Petersburg, the delega-
tion will be a solid front of demo-
crats working with democrats. For
all of them, we wish the best. For
example, we wish for our senior
Senator, Spessard Holland, anoth-
er year added to his already distin-
guished career as a public servant;
for Senator George Smathers, re-
newed health-to enable him to stay
in the Senate where he belongs.
And for the Congressmen: Bob
Sikes, the honor and distinction of
being invited to serve on the Atom-
ic Energy Committee in addition
to his duties on the Appropriations
Committee; Syd Herlong, the cov-
eted spot on the Ways and Means
Committee--the first time for any
Floridian; Charlie Bennet, twin
boys; Jim Haley, the solid backing
of his district, so that his stay in
Congress will be like they say in
the circus business-a long, long
run; Billy Matthews, a busy year of
speaking engagements; Dante Fas-

tions and how to make them and life? Life doesn't mean much to us
how to keep them, 'but it seems -35,000 killed every year in auto-
that the making of such vows is no mobiles, another 30,000 die in acci-
longer the custom of the American dents in the home and there are
people. Perhaps too many years of other forms of carelessness that
big starts have resulted in tiny bakes life-yes, human life is the
finishes and we have thus grown
discouraged. We now are somewhat
cynical and are of the mind that we
Shall not deceive ourselves any lon-
ger. We shall just go ahead and
live the new year in the same man-
ner as we have lived the old. This
is undoubtedly a very realistic view
of things and will not lead to frus-
trating failures as we see surselves
fall by the wayside of our good in-
However, this year we might
make an attempt at a switcheroo
and make one or two tiny begin-
nings-that might grow into a cou-
ple of big success by the time the
end of the year rolls around. What
might be a tiny start? Certainly
nothing as drastic as to cease one
of our cherished bad habits. That
would be foolish and be almost
doomed to defeat. Then again, we
do not want to institute anything
that will cost money-that too,
would be foolish and doomed to
defeat. We must find something
that we don't value very highly and
that will not cost us any of our
least valuable possession that we
have. And what is human life? It
iis expressed in terms of time.
Hours minutes and days and weeks
and months and years. Time is the
lowest common denominator of hu-
man life--therefore when we spend
a bit of time on something we spend
a bit of human life. As this seems
to be our least valuable possession
we might make our tiny beginning
1955 resolution have something to
do with time. We might give away
a bit of this cheap commodity.
Now, if we are to give away a
lilMe bit of our very life-even
though it isn't worth much to us-
we might as well try to give it to a
worthwhile endeavor. And what is
more worthwhile in this world than
the church? We can give a little
bit of -,r least valuable possess-
ion-our time-to the church on
Sunday mornings. We can give one
little hour a week as a very tiny
start of a new year's resolution and
from this is almost sure to grow
some final large successes, at the
end of 1955.

Florida Home Mortgages
Over Last Year's Figure!
Home mortgages recorded in
Florida through September of this
year have rolled up a total of $573,-
This nine month total is 15 per
cent above the comparable figure
for last year and virtually equal to
the annual total for 1952. The na-
ticnal 1953-1954 gain was 10 per
cent, the Florida State Chamber of
Commerce reported this week.
The number of these home mort-
gage recordings in Florida through
September this year reached 93,-
534. September is the high month
so far with 11,892 recordings. The
monthly average this year has al-
ready passed the former peak of
10,503 established in December of
The volumes of business of the
various types of original mortgage
lenders are shown in this week's
t business review of the State Cham-
I ber's research and industrial divi-
sion. Savings and Loan Associa-
tions loaned $195,654,000 of the nine
month total, a 33 per cent gain over
the comparable 1953 total. Individ-
uals loaned $145,684,000, up 4 per
cent; insurance companies totaled
$68,255,000, a gain of 2 per cent;
commercial banks handled $45,-

government agencies loaned $118,-
502,000, an increase of 15 per cent.
These mortgages cover residential
and commercial properties of twen-
ty thousand dollars or less. Since
most mortgages of this size are on

are considered a reasonable gauge

rest of the junk for about a week
and then I got tired of it. Now I
don't pay any more attention to
my television set than I did to my
radio after the new wore off, un-
less there is some program that I
want to hear.
Personally, I don't think the mo-
vie people have anything to worry
about. It has been a good thing to
have this new competition for it
has made the movie producers con-
centrate on giving us better pic-
tures and they are doing it. It
will be a long, long time before
television can compete with the
top-notch movies we are getting
today and I don't think my neigh-
bor has anything to worry about
as far as present day television is
When I go to a movie I feel pret-
ty confident that I am going to see
the whole picture and won't have
to sit and bite my nails or pull my
hair every few minutes when the
picture goes ga-ga and they hang
up the sign "Don't touch your set,
it is fault," or "We are having Vi-
deo difficulty-one minute please".
From my experience these heart-
breaking announcements .always
seem to appear just when the hero
is about to capture the villain or
the newscaster is telling us the
thrilling news about what happen-
ed in Washington.
I don't think the newspaper folks
need to worry about television ei-
ther, any more than they did about
radio. The present day newspapers
are bigger and better than ever be-
fore, and as for me I never heard
a radio news report or a television
newscast that could compete with
my newspaper. I like radio and I
like television, but neither one of
them are going to wean me away
from my movies nor my newspaper.
