GO TO CHURCH SUNDAY
After many months of working, hoping, planning and pa--
tiently waiting the Port St. Joe Chamber of Commerce announced

Michigan, will construct a four and a half million dollar plant
here in Port St. Joe. The plant will extract magnesium oxide

Bread Cast Upon
The Waters Returns
Vic Anderson and the St. Joe
,Motor Company received some
mighty fine publicity for his firm
and for Port St. Joe recently
when he aided a Calhoun, Geor-
gia tourist when he had trouble
while visiting the beach here.
The tourist had car trouble at
the beach and Vic went out to
the beach to give him an esti-
mate on repairs and cashed his
personal check for the work to
preserve the tourist's ready cash.
The incident got a big write-up

like that up in Calhoun.
New County Budget Shows An
Increase of Nearly Seven Mills
Along about this time each
year, it becomes necessary for
the County Commisston to come
up with a new budget for the
coming year. .
The Commission has done so
this year, after-much study, and
the rejection of four drafts, bai
still they have an instrument
which will cost the taxpayers
approximately seven mills more-
The biggest cause for a tax
hike is the Road and Bridge
Fund. The fund required no mills
last year, operating entirely from
race track funds. This year that
fund will carry a tax of 5.4 mills.
The reason for the hike isa the
need for some new equipment
'and the County must pay for a,
drag line they bought on the
credit this year.
- The next largest hike in taxes
was caused by the Fine and For--
* feiture Fund which jumped from
"3.3 mills to 5.1. More expenses
in the Sheriff's department made
this hike necessary.
The only reduction in the bud-
get was in the General Fund
which was dropped from 7.6 to
7.4 mills. All other Funds carry
the same millage as last year.
For a complete breakdown of
the new budget, turn to page
three in this issue of The Star.

'With all the talk we've been do-

Here's the 'way to do it: The first
goal in hay making is to put up hay
with good green color and most of
its leaves still on.

the hay in 'the -field after it is cut,
the more feeding value it loses, be-

gets rained on, the rain will leach
out many of the nutrients. A hard
rain soon after the hay is cut will
cause less damage than rain that
falls after the hay has dried out
considerably. Rain will cause less
damage to your hay if it is in small
windows than if it is still in the
One answer to the problem of
making hay in Florida during the
rainy season is to use a barn-dryer
or dehydrator. Another may be one
of the new machines that crush
the stems of the plants as they are
cut. Plans for hay driers can be
obtained from the Agricultural En-
gineering department of the Experi-
ment 'Station. Some farmers get
their haying done between rains.
This can be done easily with Ber-
muda hay, because it dries quickly.

grasses and Alyce clover, hairy in-
digo and alfalfa all make good hays
in Florida. Bermuda is particularly
well adapted, because it dries
quickly. All grass hays are low in
protein, and you'll need protein sup-
plication with them.
Very little alfalfa is being grown
in the state, though some cattlemen
are doing well with it. Alyce clover
and hairy indigo make good hays.
The rainy season is about over
when they are ready for cutting,
and this gives you a better chance
of making a .good quality hay.
Making silage may be a better
way of saving the surplus summer
forage growth than making hay, if
you can afford to do so. But if you
don't want to invest in silage-mak-

reason you prefer to make hay, you
