"Port St. Joe-The Outlet Port for the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee Valley"
TWENTY-FIRST YEAR 2ORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA THURSDAY, APRIL 3, 1958 NUMBER 27
by W.$LEY R. RAMISEY
News is y this week. All
that is goi is a recession in
the Unitec states; the Russians
say they a At going to test any
more atom ibs; two civil wars
going on and "Little Blue Man"
is crying "I wuve you".
And of course Russia has a new
Premier. They're getting as bad as
IFrance. Old cue U must have de-
cided that ever v7 in Russia was
crazy but him, he would just
have to run th -low himself if
it was run right
The Civil wars seem to be going
in contrast with one another. In
Cuba the rebels seem to have the
government chasing a tail in cir-
cles like a little dog, while in Su-
matra, the government forces are
giving the rebels a hard .'me.
If we were Betty Johnson anT
kept seeing that "Little Blue Man",
we would take a long high dive or
see a psychiatrist. But what with
these days of shaky economy, one
is liable to see a lot of things.
We took a little trip Friday was
a week ago as a guest of the In-
ternational Paper Company (wash
our mouth out with soap) of Pana-
ma City. The TPC took all the edi-
tors of this area bn a tour of their
woodland and plant operations and
best of all, gave us a free feed at
Angelo's By The Sea in Panama
City. It was all scrumptious, with
lobster for dinner and all.

Chief of Police H. W. Griffin Has
Praise For Good Behavior of Visitors
Chief of Police H. W. (Buck) Grifin commends the people of
Port St. Joe and the thousands of visiting band students who were
in Port St. Joe last week end for their extra-ordinary good behavior
on the streets and throughout the city. "Even with the influx of
hundreds of additional automobiles, there was not one case of
speeding or reckless driving reported and no auto accidents of
any kind.', Griffin said.
Griffin had nothing but praise for the behavior of the visit-
ing band students.
Griffin gave credit for the excellent traffic record to Port
'St. Joe's traffic safety program of the last year. "Irresponsible
driving would surely resulted in an accident with the crowds that
were in Port St. Joe last week end", said Griffin.

Pulp and Paper Backbone
Over $2,500,000 a week is added to the economy of Flor-
ida by the pulp and paper industry through wood purchases,
payrools, forestry expenditures and freight costs.
Figures on how the pulp and paper industry benefits
our state, based upon the first comprehensive survey of all
paper mills in the area, were released at the recent annual meet-
ing of the Southern Pulpwood Conservation Association.
Delegations from Florida and 10 other states, including
mill officials, foresters and pulpwood dealers, met in Atlanta for
two days to consider improved tree-growing practices and me-
thods of providing additional assistance to farmers and other
landowners who own most of the commercial forest land.
In just 25 years the pulp' and paper industry has grown
into the most far-reaching economic force in our region. Trees
are grown on more farms than any other crop and the pulp and
paper survey reveals the industry is contributing more than a
million dollars daily to the economy of the South.
Pulpwood costs of the 10 Florida mills total $89,194,000
annually. The mills have a total payroll of $44,495,200. On a
regional basis, the industry mill-payroll amounts to $351,805,800
while expenditures for pulpwood exceed $405,000,000 annually.
The pulp and paper industry provides a total of 10,234
jobs in Florida of which 9,244 are at the 10 mills and the remain-
ing 990 are in the company-owned forests. Work is provided for
7,839 persons in- the harvesting of pulpwood.
Private landowners, including farmers, own 14,899,000
acres of forest land in Florida. This land provided most of the
annual harvest of pulpwood which exceeded 1,900,000 cords in
1956. This is almost double the 1989 pulpwood production, in-
dicating the effectiveness of the pulp and paper industries' plan
of replenishing our forests.
In order to assure raw materials for the future, the com-
panies own 4,174,500 acres which formerly were semi-productive
or wasteland. Less than three per cent of this land has been
retired from agricultural cultivation. Besides providing raw ma-
terial insurance,, the company-owned tree farms, many of which
are located near -Port St. Joe, serve as demonstrations of results
other owners nmay expect from intensive forestry practices. This
way lies greater production and soil conservation.

The Bomb That Didn't
Even though it did not go off, the bomb that dropped on
South Carolina has been heard round the world.
Moscow made the most of it. Soviet statements declared
such an accident could cause a world war.
We doubt it. Radar warning systems and general flight
checks provide an amount of guidance unguessed at by the lay-
In countries of the Western Alliance the responses seem
more conditioned by political outlook than by factual knowledge:
neutralists and local Communists express the most concern.
In Britain the incident naturally was seized upon by head-
line writers At this time anything that bears on the banning of
nuclear weapons is a first-class news story in Britain. More-
over, the British have been living for some time right under
American air patrols known to be fitted with atomic bombs.
Even so, the fact that the bomb did not explode, illustrating not
the dangers but the safeguards in the mechanism, might well
receive equal emphasis.
The neutralism that accompanies some people's fear of
nuclear bombs tends to dull their sensitivity to other dangers.
But as one Briton has put it in the last day or two, if neutralism
had won the day in Britain 18 years ago there would have been a
"Vichy Britain", as there was for a time a French authorization
state ruled from Vichy.
Fortunately the battle for freedom is being fought mainly
on the mental front at this moment. Experience with dictatorship
in the last quarter century gives little reason to suppose that either
fear or neutralism could keep it there.

to retard the development of the
old town through legislative enact-
ment. With the representative, E.
J. Wood, of Franklin county,
which at that time included in its
boundaries, the two towns, taking
the lead a bill was rushed through
the legislative council of 1836, re-
moving the county seat from Apa-
lachicola to St. Joseph. This was
undoubtedly a case of "cast-iron
nerve" on the part of the Saints,
for the construction of their own
had hardly begun at the time when
the law was approved on January.
,But alas! sometimes fortune
does not favor the bold; the na-
tional congress annulled the law.
Probably the chief cause of this
annulment was the activity of
Joseph M. White, the territorial
delegate to congress, who was in-
terested in the Apalachicola Land
company, being one of the trustees
appointed to sell its lands. White
did everything in his power to
thwart the growth of St. Joseph.
The attempt of 1836 was not the
last one to remove the seat of
county government from Apalachi-
cola. The bill was reenacted in

and extreme poverty rub shoulders.
Rugged mountains and sparkling
lakes add to its charm and beau-
ty. Like the Seminoles of Florida
the Indians of Guatemala remain
pretty much to themselves and
maintain their identity as a dis-
tinct race, living very much the
same today as they have lived thru
the centuries. They are industrious
and can be seen. farming their
small tracts or trudging to market
with gigantic packs on their backs.
Our editorial group was received
by the newly elected. president,
General Miguel Ydigoras Fuentes,
at the presidential palace, who in-
terrupted a conference with a num-
ber of natives, to greet us. There is
no pomp or ceremony. Here the
people come in rags and bare foot-

their president. It was democracy

Sikes Says High Prices THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla.

. WASHINGTON, D. C.-Congress-
man Bob Sikes told the House of
Representatives last week that no
greater service could be done for
the nation than for management
and labor to find means to bring
prices down. He was discussing the
problems of the unemployed and
the need for extension of state un-
employment benefits and stat-ud
that the recession is largely the
result of a buyer's strike and the
loss of confidence by the oubl'c in
our national security.
He stated that since unemulo/-
ment is increasing in severity, there
must be immediate action o' the
part of Congress to extend the
benefits of the state unemployment
compensation programs, particular-
ly for those whose eligibility is now
or soon will be exhausted. Florida's
unemployed, although low in num-
ber, are especially vulnerable be-
cause of the short period of cover-
age afforded' by the Florida law,
according to Sikes.
THURSDAY, APRIL 3, 1958
The Florida Congresmsan told
his colleagues it is the responsibili-
ty of Congress to develop a formu-
la which would permit extensions
of benefits at state levels and there-
by to encourage state action to
make permanent improvements in
the amounts and duration of bene-
fits to jobless. Because most state
legislatures do not meet until 1959,
Sikes said it may be necessary for
Congress to develop temporary
plans for "we cannot ignore the
plight of those who soon will have
nothing to which to turn for the ne-
cessities of life."
The maximum period of benefits
for unemployment compensation in
Florida is 16 weeks which is the
shortest in the nation. Pennsylvan-
ia has a 30 week period. The aver-
age unemployment pay is $23.87 a
week, and this amount varies from
$19.70 to $38.71 in other states.
The unemployment laws in most
states were enacted when prices
were much 'lower ahd Sikes says
they do not deal adequately with

Sikes stated that the nation is
not in economic danger. He pointed-
to the fact that the percentage of
unemployed is less than a third of
the percentage at the depth of de-
pression. In Florida the percentage
of unemployed is less than half of
the national average and Florida
actually has more people working
than were employed a year ago,
due to gains in population.
