Ernest Wimberly put his plan
to work up a swimming pool in
Port St. Joe into second gear
Tuesday night when he "put the
Commission on notice" that a
movement was being formed in
Port St. Joe to bring such a thing
We're on his team in this. Any
thing that will make our city
bigger and more prosperous and
give more services to the people
we are for.
We can't help but be a little
curious to see how he is going
to arrive at plans to finance it
though. Whatever the plan, if it's
legal, we'll be right there to help
Wednesday was a wonderful day,
even It it was publication day.
The temperature broke and left
a nice balmy atmosphere to get
"fall fever" in and the Milwaukee
graves started strengthening their
hold'on first place.
A most perfect day.
The Civil War is really over.
At least it is in Gulf County..
The County has called Port St.
Joe's most "proud he's a yankee"

All traces of the carpet bagger

about being a Yankee and stili

ing about who brags about com-

iPennyslvania and hasn't even the
decency to be ashamed of it.

Monday whefi we made the, pic-
ture of his producing banana tree.
Gus bad just returned from serv-
ing a day of jury duty and reported
that all but about two of the jury.
men were from Port St. Joe.
We wondered where everybody
went this week. Thought maybe
our population was decreasing but
they have just gone to Wewahitch-
ka for awhile.

Gus Creech Grows Bananas In His
Yard; Tree Bears After Two Years
Gus Creech has a banana plan-
tation in his yard. He is pictured
above holding a. stalk on one of
his trees with 12.bananas on it.
Cheech said he planted four trees
two years ag:. from just root and
they have grown now to about 15
lest in height. One of the trees
came up with a stalk of bananas
this year and has 12 medium size
bananas on the stalk.
The stalk has had several bana-
nas form but most of them have
fallen off while very small, Creech
said. The stalk is still growing and
putting on more new little bananas
and possibly will end up with More
than the present 12.
The bananas are about six inches
long and are still green.

An Investment In Your Future.
The Retail Merchants Division of the Port St. Joe Cham-
ber of Commerce is making an all out effort to make the
shopping district of Port St. Joe more attractive to you. But in
order to do this, they need your help. Port St. Joe's merchants
want to provide you with the kind of stores you want to shop in
and will take all possible steps to give this to you.
When you spend your money in your home town, your
money continues to work for you and your community. Your
city grows and progress is made. Improvements are possible, both
in civic projects and in local business that directly effects you.
Your city can offer you more in the way of educational facilities,
recreational facilities, youth work and many other civic projects
as well as better streets, better sanitation, better water and sew-
age facilities, etc. Your merchants can offer you larger and
better selections; more attractive stores and better accommodation
But when you spend your money, out of town that
money is forever gone. Your city receives less taxes and city
improvements are reduced. Their payroll is cut from lack of
business, thus directly reducing the population of our town. More
volume to your merchant means cheaper prices and larger selec-
tions for you. They are less able to support civic projects and
thus reduces the possibility of civic improvements and programs
that are vital to the progress of Port St. Joe.
The merchants of our city are vitally interested in its
growth, just as you the citizen is. As citizens; you too, are in-
terested in seeing a greater and more prosperous Port St. Joe.
You want your children to have all the possible advantages that
your city can give them. Then for any improvements and progress
to be possible, we must all work together toward that goal.
Segregation: More Than A Color Bar
Fromn The Gulf County Breeze
A letter came to us recently from a friend, a professor
at an Alabama college. Among other things, he offered, us a job
and told us he did not agree with our stand on segregation.
We had no trouble answering his job offer: We had no
But his remark about our stand on segregation caused us
some pause and puzzlement because; to the best of our recol-
lection, we have never taken a stand on this issue. True, we have
printed several pro-segregation articles, but more because of their
'uniqueness and reader interest than because they necessarily
reflected our position on segregation.
In point of fact, we are a fervent believer in segregation.
But so is every man who is in possession of his senses
and has a will of his own. The principal of segregation is as old
as mankind (actually older), and no law other than the unwritten
law of human conduct in this matter will prevail in the long run.
When we speak of segregation here, we do not mean
separation of the races alone, or, more specifically separation of
black and white. We believe respecting the mixing of races, that
if in the course of human events, it is intended to be, it will be.
But nature will be the governing factor, not nine old day-dreamers
invading the province of national and state legislatures.
If you pause a moment, you will realize that wherever!
people are found so will segregation be found. It is an age-old
Negroes, wherever they go, group together.
Italians, wherever they go, .group .together.
Slav, wherever they go, group together.
So with Jews, Chinese, French, Egyptians.
So with engineers, bridge players, dog lovers, flower
growers, stamp collectors, bosses, sporstmen, etc.
The reasons are legion. Basically, though, races group
together in a non-homeland because of their common background,
heritage, customs. This common denominator, within a group,
is a thread with which mutual interests and problems and joys
and sorrows are woven together in the knowledge that members
of the group will understand, sympathize, praise as no member
outside the group can.
No, segregation is not only a racial issue. Segregation
cuts across the whole of our social structure, regardless of race.
Wherever you go, whatever you do, whoever you are, are there
not some types of people with whom you would rather not assoc-
iate? Does the banker sip his daily tomato juice with the ditch
digger? Does the cop on the beat chum around with the chief
of police? Which of you has not heard and shared in and ex-
pressed yourself this sentiment: "I wouldn't be caught dead as-
sociating with that one!" or "Oh, let's not invite that one!" The
principle- of segregation, pure and simple.
What are clubs but forms of segregation?
What are societies but forms of segregation?
What, indeed, in the final analysis, are churches but
forms of segregation?
Naturally, a person's color is a factor in segregation. Only
a fool would deny that it is awesome it is so colossal. But what
is unusual about black and white not mixing? Have black, white,
red, and yellow men ever interwoven in any combination, race-
But suppose one day they do. If the color bar is broken,
it will be broken by process of natural selection. That is, it will
have developed through daily race relations over a long period

year than ever before, Management
Chief R. A. Bonninghausen report-
ed idhs week.
"We're'expecting a bumper crop
of 75 million pine seedlings from
our nurseries at Olustee, Munsoni
and Chiefland," Bonninghausen
Seedling orders up to 25,000 will
be completely filled, with orders
over that amount being pro rated
according to the supply.
-_ "In past years the reduction has
been severe due to the limited num-
ber of seedlings available, but if
landowners will get their orders in
early, they will receive a good pro-
portion of their orders, if it is over
25,000," Bonninghausen stated.
The Florida Forest Service sells
the pine seedlings to landowners at
cost, $4.00 per thousand f.o.b. at
For an additional 35 cents per
thousand seedlings, landowners liv-
ing In north and northwest Florida
can have their rseedlings delivered
by truck from the nursery to the
Florida Forest Service station near-
est to their rhome.
,, 'Landowners ordering up to 25,-
000 seedlings should enclose a
check for their seedlings with the
application. If their order is for
more than 25,000, they will receive
a notice after the deadline as to
the amount they will receive.
Landowners interested in plant-
ing pine trees this year should get
their orter in before September 1

be obtained by writing to the Flor-
