Forest Fires Show
Decline Gver 1957
The fire records for Gulf County
show for the first three months of
1958 which covers January, Febru-
ary and March, the county had
eight careless fires burning 145.6
acres; two incendiary fires burn-
ing 4.4 acres. During the same per-
iod in 1957 the records show 13
careless fires burning 1172.2 acres;
two Incendiary fires burning 3:4
acres. This is a decrease in number
of fires by five and a total of 1025.2
acres less burned than 1957. "We
are very proud of this record", says
J. H. Pope, dispatcher. "Rains that
have fallen this year have been a
big factor in keeping the fires
down", Pope continued.
County Ranger Hardy said that
after the hard winter this area
had, fires were an increased threat,
since so much undergrowth was
killed by freeze. "Care by the citi-
zens and the rainfall have been the
two factors that have saved our
woodlands", said Hardy.
Herman Dean Talks
Music To Kiwanians
Bandmaster Herman Dean pre-
sented the program at the Kiwanis
Club meeting Tuesday. Dean's pro-
gram was on the peculiarities of
band instruments. His talk dwelt
on what he considered to be the
three most unusual instruments-
and the hardest to play-the bas-
soon, the oboe and the drum.
Dean demonstrated the technique
of making the exact hand-made
reeds for the bassoon and the oboe
which was right interesting. He
also gave some of the character-
istics of the instruments. The bas-
soon having the largest range of
any instrument and the strange
sounds made by the oboe. He re-
ported that the bassoon cost $800
and the oboe $600. Not a bit cheap.
'Of the drum, Dean said the in-
strument would fool you. New band
students and parents alike thought
the drum was a snap to play. 'This
is not so" he said, "the drums lead
the band and must play with per-
fect rhythm and beat". Dean said
that it takes at least nine months
to make a drum player and dem-
onstrated his point with some of
the fundamentals that must be mas-

We can imagine the tense ex-
citement of the Saints as Monday,
December 3, the day set for the
opening of the convention approa-
ched. When the delegates from
East and Middle Florida arrived
on the steamer New Castle from
St. Marks, either late on Saturday
or some time Sunday, the residents
of the town knew that the long
awaited day was at hand.
When the meeting was called
to order at 12 o'clock noon on
December 3, 46 members were
present out of a total of 56. Aftre
a temporary organization had
been perfected, one of the resi-
dents of 'St. Joseph, the Rev.
Peter W. Gautier, opened the con-
vention with prayer. Little work
was done on the first day, except
to examine credentials of the
members. Then the convention
adjourned until the next day, thus
giving the delegates and inhabi-
tants a further opportunity to
The 'Saints learned to know
some of the most influential men
in the history of American Flor-
ida prior to 1870. There were pres-
ent at least two, probably three,
future governors of Florida: Rob-
ert Raymond Reid, within a year
destined to succeed Richard K.
Call as .territorial governor; Wil-
liam Marvin of Key West, who-
more than 25 years later was
chosen provisional governor at the
close of the 'Civil War, and Thos.
Brown of Leon County, probably
the same man who was governor
of the state from 1849 to- 1853.
The first three United States sen-
ators from Florida were mem-
bers of the convention: James D.
Westcott, Jr., David Levy Yules
(his name at this itme was David
'Levy), and Jackson Morton. Five
of them sat in the Secession con-
vention which declared the state
no longer a member of the Union
in January, 1861: John McGehee,
who became president of the Se-
cession convention; George T.
Ward, Samuel B. Stephens,. Jack-
son Morton and James G. Cooper.
E. Carrington Cabell became a
Florida representative in congress.
At least five members of the fu-
ture supreme court of the state
were members of the convention:
Walkr Anderson, Benjamin D.
Wright, Thomas Baltzell, Leslie A.
Thompson and Albert G. Semmes.
Not only were the future politi-
cal' and judicial leaders of the
state at this gathering, but the
two greatest newspaper editors of
territorial Florida were delegates:
Benjamin D. Wright, the able edi-
tor and publisher of the Pensacola
Gazette, and Cosam Emir Bartlett,
the clever and kindly leader, of the
Apalachicola Gazette. Another able
editor, Joshua Knowles of the
Florida Watchman of Tallahassee,
was chosen secretary of the con-
vention, but he was not a delegate,
All in all, it may be truthfully
said that never before nor since
have so many able men been gath-
ered at one time in a Florida
town, and .that town not four years

'The convention continued in ses-
sion to January 11-a duration
three times as long as had been
anticipated. Though the proceed-
ings ordinarily were of little in-
terest t othe populace, there were
occasions when the attention of
almost everybody was aroused.
Their delegate, Duval, lost the
chairmanship of the convention by
one vote to Judge Reid, but as a
partial compensation for this dis-
appointment he was made chair-
man of the committee on the ex-
ecutive department, and Allen of
the committee on the judicial de-

these two men played very promi-

Stockholders are accustomed to
receiving annual reports from the
companies in which they have in-
vested. For a great many years,
such reports followed a more or
less uniform format. They were sol-
umn, austere, difficult to read and
understand. A mass of statistics that
would tax the brain of a certified
accountant to figure out.
Now-a-days it is hard to tell the
annual report of a corporation from
a modern up to the minute Cham-
ber of Commerce booklet. When
the auditors and accountants finish
their work, the public relations de-
partment takes over and the final
product is dressed in modern fash-
ion with attractive colored covers,
interesting charts and graphs that
tell their story at a glance.
Last week my friend Malcolm
McDonald, Vice President of the
Florida Power and Light Company,
in change of public relations, sent
me a press proof of tre company's
-1957 annual report that is being
mailed this week to thousands of
stockholders, bankers and invest-
ment houses throughout the nation.
Without doubt it is the most im-
pressive and interesting such report
that has ever come to my attention.
At first glance you would thing it
was the new Florida magazine. The
word "Florida" stands out on the
four color showing a rocket launch-
ing platform at Cape Canavarel. Un-

the fact that the report devoted
more effort to selling Florida than
it did in selling the company itself.
The article on page four, points outs
that a record industrial 'growth is
forging dynamic new links in Flo-

in full color, it shows various oper-
ations in our busy aviation,
