ETAOIN SHRDLU
by WESL.EY R. RAMSEY


We got into a group the other
day that was talking about the mir-
acles of modern times. In this group
was Wayne Buttram who had just
returned from the Chicago furni-
ture market where practically all
the leading manufacturers in fur-
niture and appliances show their
wares to prospective buyers.
He was telling us and the group
that the wonder appliances of a
year or two ago is now on the
market. He told of one manufac-
turers' display that manufactured t A
electrical home appliances. They
were demonstrating an oven that
would bake cookies done in two
minutes. A large roast could be .

eight minutes. All by electronics.

There's only one little catch to
this oven-it will cost around $1,-

Belin Featured

Speaker At Kappa

Alpha Meeting

JACKSONVILLE Robert E.
-Lee is remembered and honored
foi his character more than for his
achievements, Jake Belin, Port St.
Joe executive, said Friday in the
annual tribute to Lee by Jacks.on-
vi le Alumni of Kippa Alpha Ira-
ternity.
It was largely through the in-
fluence of Lee's character that the
fraternity was founded when he
was president of what is now
Washington and Lee University,
Belin said,
Saturday was the 150th Anniver-
sary of Lee's birth,
Belin said it is a phenomenon
of American life that Lee's "ame
is supported by his character
rather than his leadership of the
Confederate army in the Civwl
War.
He was courteous, modest, dig-
nified, reserved and friendly and
had a .sense of humor that charm-
ed everyone, the speaker said.
. "The years in Lexington (Va.)
were happy," Belin said. "The
struggle to reestablish Washington
College found him cheerful in the
face of adversity."
Lee worked from early morning
until late night with faculty and
students, put the rancor of war
behind him and sought to get
others to do the same, Belin said.

man hours worked caused from ac-
cidents on the mill premises. This
compares very favorably wisa other
mills of its type throughout the
South and is well below the aver-
age. The average lost time for each
million man hours worked through-
out the Southern Pulp and Paper'
Industry was 6.73. Only four mills
out of .the 63 member mills went
accident tree for the year 1956.
The safety program at the St.
Joe mill was begun in 1964 at the
end of their expansion program.
The past year was the best year
insofar as reduced accidents goes,
since the mill began operation in
1939.
* Compared to previous years the
past year's accident year is astound-
ing. In 1.953 only three years ago,
the mill had 18.66 man hours lost
for each million, man hours work-
ed, due to accidents. In 1954, the
record was 12.27. In 1956, it was
1-.19..
The mill averages a thousand em-
ployees on its payroll and during
the last five months of 1956, only
two days were lost from work as a
result of an injury among these
1,000 men. This should assure each
wife and child whose husband or
father is employed at the mill. The
chances of a person having a dis-
abling injury at the mill have now
dropped to in '?LC .
Safety Program
The present safety program at
the mill began in 1954 and has
been steadily improving working
conditions there since. Through em-
ployer participation and the man-
agement backing the mill has de-
veloped Into a safe place to work.
During the past year 409 safety
Jobs were completed on the mill
premises to make for safer work-
ing conditions.
The main improvements came in
improved wiring, improved light-
ing, improved house keeping and
elimination of many wood yard ha-
zards. Guards have been put on
all machinery parts that will in-
jure a hand or arm. Handling
wood by hand, which was formerly
a prime source for accidents, has
virtually been eliminated.
'Safety meetings are held once
a month at which films are shown,
discussions held and training in
safety measures is carried on. This
has reduced the total number of
days lost from 7,413 days in 1855
to 730 days in 19H6. The figures
quoted at the head of the story
are for million man hours worked.
These figures quoted here are the
actual days lost by the company
due to accidents.
Box Plant Accident Free
The Container Division plant of
the St. Joe Paper Company chalk-
ed up a complete year without a
single lost time accident in 1956.
The box plant went accident free
one other 12 month period In 1954.
These are the only two years that
this has been accomplished.
Employees of the box plant will
be honored by the St. Joe Paper
Company tonight with a barbecue
at the Centennial Building to cele-
brate this record.


ture as the consequence of a bill
presented by Rep. Cecil Costin, Jr.
According to Sikes, the Dead
Lakes Authority would have power
to file application for the dam, bor-
row money for its construction, su-
pervise construction and operation
of the dam during and after con-
struction, and make a special
charge for a permit to those who
fish In .the area, as a means of
repaying money loaned by the fed-
eral -government, and as a means
of meeting expenses of restocking,
fertilization, and so on,
Sikes concluded by making clear-
his confidence that t'he local legis-
lators Will support, enthusiastically
,the establishment of such an Au-
thority, when the legislature cou'-

cuting Attorney.
2. Comm. Harden nominated Da-


vid C. Gaskin for County Attorney.
3. Comm. Strickland nominated
Ben H. Dickens for prosecuting At-
torney.
Whereupon, there was a motion
by Comm. Harden, seconded by
Comm. Cooper and duly carried,
that the nominations be closed.
Upon motion of IComm. Harden,
seconded by Comm. Croxton and
unanimously carried, David C. Gas-
kin was employed as County Attor-
ney for the year 1957.
Whereupon. there was a motion
by Comm. iStrickland, to employ
Beli H. Dickens as prosecuting At-
torney. The 'Chairman declared the
motion dead because it received no
second.
Comm. Harden informed the
Board that he has been informed
that it may be illegal to employ
Mr. Cecil G. Costin, Jr:, as prose-
cuting Attorney because he has
heretofore 'been elected to the of-
fice of 'State Representative for
Gulf County. Mr. Harden then cal-
led upon Mr. Ben H. Dickens to
inform the Board as to the legality
of Mr. Costin holding the office of
State Representative and the job
of Prosecuting Attorney for Gulf
County during the same period of
time.
Mr. Ben H. Dickens informed the
Board that he has studied the law
with reference to this question and
that he find's that a person can not
be a Representative in the Legisla-
ture of Florida and hold a County
Office at the same time; that if
Mr. Costin was employed as County
Prosecuting Attorney and accepted
that job, that would automatically
vacate his being a Representative
in the State ILegislature.
Mr. Cecil G. Costin, Jr., being
present, requested permission to
speak on this question and told the
Board that he did not know this
question was coming up, but that
he was certain there was no law
to prevent him from serving as a
Representative in the Legislature
and being employed as County Pro-
secuting Attorney and if the County
Commissioners did see fit to em-
ploy him as ,Prosecuting Attorney
today, that he will obtain an opin-
ion from the Supreme Cournt of
Florida with reference to the ques-
tion, and should said opinion be
that he could not serve as prose-
cuting Attorney while serving as
Representative in the Legislature,
in such event, he would resign and
refund the County any monies he
had received from said employment
that if a suit was brought against
the County because of their action,
that he would defend the suit with-
out cost to the County.
Comm. Harden then called on the
Attorney for 'the Board, Mr. David
C. Gaskin and requested him to
inform the Board as to what law
he has been able to find on the
question. Mr. Gaskin read an opin
ion from the Supreme Court of


Flor'ida, said opinion being in an-
swer to a question from Governor
Catta.
Comm. Cooper moved that the
Board employ a temporary Prose-
cuting Attorney to serve until this
question can be settled. Motion re-
ceived no second.
Comm. CroxIton moved to table
this question until an opinion can
be obtained from the Attorney Gen-
eral. Motion received no second.
Comm. Strickland moved that the
Board employ Mr. Ben H. Dickens
as ,Prosecuting Attorney for the
year 1967. Motion received no sec-
ond.
Comm. Crorton moved that the
appointment of a Prosecuting At-
torney be tabled,'until the next reg-
ular meeting and that 'Mr. David C.
Gaskin be appointed 'as temporary
prosecuting Attorney to serve unm
til such time a iProsecuting Attor-
Iey can be employed. Motion sec-
onded by Comm. Cooper 'and the
following voted: AYE: Croxton,
Cooper, Harden and Price. NAY:
None. Comm. Strickland did not
vote.
The 'Chairman instructed Attor-
ney Gaskin to write for an opinion
from the Attorney General and to
request the Governor to secure an
opinion from the Supreme Court of
Florida.
The IBoard received the following
bids to furnish the County Roard
Department and Court House fuel

wit:

SOUTHERN BUSINESS
AND INDUSTRY


Yes-a Billion Dollars that protects you and your family-
helps build homes and roads and bridges and an even more
wonderful South!. Not bad for a youngster only 45 years old!
Just a few days ago, Gulf Life became one of the few
billion dollar life insurance companies. We consider this
news-good news. But we do not consider it a time for self-
praise. Rather, it is a time for appreciation.
So this is to express our appreciation to our more than
1,200,000 policyowners whose faith and confidence have
made this possible .
Our gratitude to the 1,750 Gulflifers who have worked
hard and long to achieve this goal...
Our thanks to the businesses and industries of the South
for permitting us to share in their development and ex-
pansion .
Our best wishes to the thousands of people whose homes
and business properties we have helped to finance .
Our congratulations to government leaders who have con-
sistently envisioned a greater South and who have, conse-
quently, created greater investment opportunities.
We've reached the billion dollar mark, yes.
But we feel this is only the beginning because every day,
more and more Southerners are saying:


Gulf Life -that's myAcompany!


Every dollar
behind your
Gulf Life
policy is
