Just when is "dog days"?
Several people have asked me
that and I must confess I didn't
know. So to the encyclopedia I
went. According to that book of
knowledge, "dog days" is the hot-
test 40 days of summer. It la the
period of time when the star Sirius
is closest the earth. The book went
on to say that popular legend has
it that dogs are more likely to go
mad during this period of time.
The book scoffed at -his supersti-
tion, though, saying that dogs are
more likely to go mad during cool
weather than hot weather.
The name "dog days" comes from
the star Sirius being called the
"dog star". No set time was named
ps to when the star is nearest the
earth, its rotation around .the
earth not being on a strict sche-
We haven't looked for ithe star,
'but we would say that the first few
days of this week were definitely
in the "dog days" category.
fDoes your wit gu tishilg with,
Mine has started.
T.he past few weeks sue bas been
puilting on her bermuda shorts and
climbing in the car to go with us
on Saturday afternoon.
Of course, like many a man, we
had grandiosevisions of having us
a built in paddler for fly-fishing
excursions, if we could teach her
to paddle. But, such was not the
.case. Now we find ourself in the
category of fish remover-he .who
removes the fish from the hook.
It's got to the' point where she
catches more fish than we do, be-
cause we spend half of our time
removing her fish from the hook.
1It's getting down righl embarras-
And when we move from one
spot to another because we are
not catching fish-and of course,
she is-we catch it in the neck.
Her usual gripe was 'that when

too tired to do anything, but eat,
bathe and go right to bed. Now
she is in the same category and
can't even rouse herself from slum-
i ber until around 8:30 on Sunday
It looks like we are going to
have to learn to paddle and teach
the little woman to fly fish.
Or maybe we should write a let-
ter to Dorothy Dix.
We understand that "he Countr
School Board has taken a qualified
teacher and set him up in a post
tion to stipulate where student
will go to school in the county-in
other words, a pupil assignment of-
ficer. We also understand, from re-
liable sources ,;hat his salary will
be around $6,000.00 a year.
'We are hereby offering our ser-
vices for the position for half that
salary. We feel confident that we
can. run our printing establishment
and at the same time hold down the
"time consuming" job of telling pu-
pils where they will go to school.
Like many other Americans, we
have tried to "ostrich" ourself by
this Civil Rights Bill. Like burying
our head in the sand would make
It go away.
But nobody should look over this
piece of legislation and dismiss it
as not pertaining to him.
We believe in the right of every
eitzien to vote. We shouldn't even
need such a thing as the Civil
Rights Bill for this to be common
practice. Such a bill would make
the Russians guffaw at our "free-
doms" it seems to us.
But the rest of the bill smacks

The Gulf County Board of Com-
missioners undertook to dig into
ithe operations portion of a propos-
ed indigent hospital payment plan
Tuesday at their regular meeting.
The Commission had tentatively
set up $4,850.00 in their 1958 bud-
get, a fund which was to be match-
ed by the State of Florida, for pay-
ing for hospital care for indigents.
A state representative of the
State Board of Health was on 'hand
to explain the State's part in the
The fund, which is set up on a
basis of 50c per capital of the coun-
ty population, will' be matched by
the State. The funds will be ad-
ministered by the county under the
supervision of the County Health
doctor, Dr. H. I. Langston. The
state man stated that there were
ample funds available for the pro-
gram. No limit as to how much
will be spent on one patient has
Dr. Langston added to the infor-
mation by stating that it is decided
whether a patient needs hospitali-
zation by a patent's family physi-
cian. If the health doctor deter-
mines that a patient probably ieeds.
hospitallza,tlon, the patient is turti-
ed over ,t his family physliiau
who alstlttrmines the need for
hospitalizai on. The doctor's work
done on a patient admitted -and
paid for by county fuuds, is free.
Former State Senat..r Georg .- G.,
Tapper appeared before the board
and stated that he had voted
against the bill when it was passed
in 1955. He stated as his reason
that the program would mushroom
in forthcoming years until in a
short period of time it would be-
come the largest item in the coun
Dr. Langston again defended the
program saying that it had been
in operation in Jackson County,
since it became law, and that the
fund had not been increased since
it had first begun. Langston stated
that no one got rich under the bill
since the funds would only provide
enough payment to cover actual
cost 'to the hospital. He stated that
doctors operating under the plan
would recieve no pay, but the bill
would take the burden off the hospi-
tals in caring for indigents who
could not afford to pay. Only acute
and indigent cases could receive
care under the plan, Langston said.

cars was about $700. '
Fuller Wins Again;
Saturday Drawing At Pates
Stanley Fuller of St. Joe Beach
became a winner for the third time
Saturday in the Port St. Joe Retail
Merchants Golden Harvest pro-
gram. Fuller was awarded $107.00
on a 30% ticket Saturday.
The drawing this week will be
at Pates' Shell Service Station at
3:30 p.m. The jackpot will be $288.
The barrel of tickets will be
completely emptied on the first
Saturday in each month beginning
Saturday, September 7. This is to
offer a better chance of winning
by eliminating dead coupons.
County attorney David Carl Gas-
kin began the meeting by asking
tax 'assessor Samuel A. Patrick if
he had changed the tax rolls to
meet with the demands made by
the complaining parties. Pa'rick
answered that he had. Gaskin then
asked attorney Ben Dickens, attor-
ney for Joseph V. Dowd if he had
examined the 'tax rolls and wa.;
satisfied with the findings. Dickens
said that due to the length of the
tax roll he had not been over every
item, but that insofar as he was
able to determine with the exami-
nation he was able to make, the
tax rolls still did not come up to
his clients demands but that they
would accept the roll as it was in
order that the county budget could
be set. He said that they especially
didn't wish to jeopardize the school
in getting into operation.
Patrick reported that he had
added intangible and tangible per-
sonal property tax to the rolls after
the investigations made to him last
week at the second of three tax
RIarry H. Saunders, vice-president
of the St. Joe Paper Company who
was objecting to the tax rolls due
to inequities said that his company
would accept the tax roll as it stood
and would make no further com-
plaints of .the roll. He said that his
company had taken the schools in-
to consideration and would not fur-
ther hinder the acceptance of the
roll for their sake. He stressed
that the matter should be more
thoroughly examined for next year.
'He said glaring inequities were evi-
dent and hoped that a thorough
study and revision of the tax rolls
would correct these before the 1958
roll was brought.
Saunders said that it was his
opinion that the property in Gulf
County could be properly assessed
by the local people. He also stressed
the point that the assessor could
do a better job of it. He offered the
assistance of the Gulf County Con-
tinuing Education Council financial
committee along this line.
Saunders further urged that the
assessor not wait until late in the
year to tackle the job, but to get
at it forthwith.
Attorney Dickens read a letter
from Joseph V. Dowd, who was
not present at the meeting. The let-
'ter, in part, read, "Although the
well planned delaying tactics of our
Tax Assessor are enough to try the
patience of Job, he has not altered
my determination to continue our
effort to compel him to comply
with the law.
"The tax rolls, even after the
modifications which have been for-
ced upon the Assessor with your
cooperation, are still a travesty on
justice and equity, and we should
be ashamed of ourselves for per-
mitting them ,to stand as they are."
Dowd went on to say that in the
light of some progress toward his
goal, that he would not carry the
matter to court, He assured the
Commission that the work by him
would continue until his goal had
been reached in the next year's

NW Florida Seen As
iron Ore Processor
TALLAIHASSEE-The head of
Florida's Developmen tCommission
told a delegation from Gadsden and
Jackson .counties Tuesday the
northwest Florida coastal area was
a logical spot for establishment of
iron ore and alumina processing
B. R, Fuller, Jr., executive direc-
tor of the agency, said studies now
were being made of the possibili-
ties and that he felt their area
might have some opportunity to
develop in these fields.
The firm is looking into this pos-
sibility, he said, in a survey being
made for the commission of indus-
trial potentialities of northwest
Florida and other areas of the state.
The Gadsden and Jackson County
group met with Fuller and his staff
to request that the survey include
a study of the feasibility of estab-
lishing por ,;facilities on the Apala-
The Por Authority would be set
up by legislation at the special sse-
sion of the Legislature, which will
meet in September or October on
About 30 representatives of Gads-
den and Jackson county met with
the Development Commission to
urge that an economic study by
Arhturd, Little, Inc., of Cambridge,
Mass., will include a study of the
Apalachicola River and need for a
port on the river.
The Development Commission
has retained the firm to make a
detailed economic and industiral
study of Northwest Florida panhau-
die counties except Escambia
IL. Fuller, Executive Director
of 1the Florida Development Com-
mission, assured the group that if
ithe economic study shows, that
port facilities are needed, the De-
velopment Conunission will push
for more de-ailed engineering stu-
die-s to locate the port and outline

Fuller said there was no doubt
in his mind that the little study
will show such a need.
J. IE, Bafil of the Development
Planning Division, suggested the
possibility of getting federal plan-
ning funds for the port. To do this,
some sort of formal organization
would be necessary.
Sen. Dewey Johnson, Quincy,
suggested the possibility of setting
up a cooperative port authority or-
ganization by legislation during the
upcoming special session.
Besides Johnson, Sen. John
Rawls Marianna, and Reps. John
Shipp, Jr., Marianna, J. Trop Pea-
cock, Marianna, Rep. C. Fred Ar-
