Unemployment Is
Down In Florida
Unemployment insurance pay-
ments have remained lower for six
successive months than the same
period last year, reports Industrial
Commission Chairman James T.
Vocelle.
August benefit payments totaled
"$1,805,511, or 116,000 less than the
same month last year, even though
maximum payment to individuals
was raised to $26 a week from $20
by the 195'5 Leglislature.
The lower total of unemployment
benefits began in March, and revers-
ed the trend of January and Feb-
ruary when paymnets were higher
than those two months of last year.
Vocelle said this factor 'seems
to be a real indicator that our econ-
omy has been stabilized on a higher
son, Carolyn Burns, Sheron Wil-
son, Jenny Hill and Maxine and
Tommy Walker.


level in the summer months than
ever before."
Business declines in the "off sea-
son" have decreased sharply. Ap-'
parently a growing summer tour-
ist has been the most important
factor, along with increased actiyi-
ty in other phases of the Florida,
economy also, Vocelle said.
A seasonal increase in unemploy-
ment payments showed up in Au-
gust as expected over the previous
month, meaning that business ac-
tivity still shows summer decline
under the winter peak of activity,
although less than in past years.
The -seasonal unemployment peak
has apparently been reached as
new claims filed in August by cov-
ered workers out of work through
no fault of their own were down
by 34% under July. Continued
claims increased by 17% over July
bat were 2,500 less than last Aug-
ust.
Two of every 10 persons filing
claims in August were declared in-
eligible for one or more reasons,
Unemployment Compensation Di-
rector Charles M. Mann reported.

SOUTH FLORIDA DOESN'T WANT US
Probably you have read in the papers where
poor little Northwest Florida is, a red-headed
step-child not wanted by the Southern part
of the Mother State. We believe that their rea-
sons are based more on jealousy than on the
assumption (on their part) that this section of
the State is not worth what it costs to keep it
operating.
While it got a later start in expanding, we
believe that this section of the State is making
progress more rapidly than the Southern part
ever did. Not only is Northwest Florida ex-


pending by leaps and bounds industrially and
agriculturally, but the tourist business on the
"Big Bend" is growing by leaps and bounds.
The beaches are inhabited almost solid from
the Alabama line on down to the mainland of
Florida. This naturally takes revenue away
from the Southern portion of the State thereby,
the jealousy.
Certain South Florida hotshots have advo-
cated giving us to Alabama. Alabama's Gover-
ror, "Big Jim" Folsom says, "YaTl Come".
While we like Alabama, we don't advocate
that this section become part of that great State.
Neither would we want to hang around where
we weren't wanted. That makes an uncomfort-
able situation.
The only solution, then, is to form our own
State.
That would prove to be troublesome too,
if we had as much trouble getting into the
Union as Hawaii and Alaska has, so it looks
like we are just stuck in our predicament for the
time being.
We could call our new State Luo short
for "Land of Unlimited Opportunity".
The drawback of course, would be that
after we got going good, Sotuh Florida would
see what they let go andwould start haggling
to get us back. The best thing to do then would
be for us to let those Southerners know that
we mean business and make them respect us
and be glad to have us in their borders.

When you need a quick sprint for
safer passing, this V8 delivers!
It's pure dynar 'te, and you have to
go way, way up the price ladder
before you ever find its equal.


Chevrolet's new "Turbo-Fire V8" packs
a Sunday punch for safer passing that no
car in Chevrolet's field can match! '
The proof was burned into the sands of
Daytona Beach at the NASCAR* trials
earlier this year. In acceleration tests,
Chevrolet simply walked away from
everything else in its field. Plus-and get
this-all the high-priced cars except one!
Surprising? Not when you consider that
this beauty's been cleaning up on all
comers in short track stock car events
this season. That's where acceleration
really pays off, as well as handling ease
and cornering ability-things that mean
safer, happier highway driving. Come on
in and let a new Chevrolet show you
what we mean.
