St. Joe Asked To Provide Harbor Facilities
County Agrees To
Lower Mills To 13
The group of taxpayers from Port St. Joe who objected to
the original draft of the County budget for the year 1959, won
out in their pleas for "holding the line" on taxes Tuesday of this
week. After much discussion, the County Board agreed to hold
the County millage at the 13.8 mark that it was last year.
Since last Tuesday, when the request for a lower budget
was asked for, the County Board has had several meetings and
worked hard over the budget, which they felt was all necessary,
to bring the tax burden in line with what the taxpayers in the
County felt they were able to pay.
The taxpayers were led in their
quest for a reduced millage by H. elude all special millage taken up

Opportunity Knocks At Our Door
For the umpteenth time in almost as many years, Port
St. Joe has been told by outsiders what lucky stiffs they are
to have our fine natural deep Water harbor and what a po-
tefitial the area has due this port being so nice as to be lo-
cated right in our back yard.
But, always in the past, we have merely smiled and
said, "yes, we are lucky, we could probably make a pile of
money for our town with that port -- we'll have to develop
We have even gone to far as to create a Port Authority
and then have let the matter die again.
Now, Port St. Joe has been approached by the Bain-
bridge, Ga., Chamber of Commerce to please, (pretty please
if you must) develop your port facilities so we can give you
some lucrative business. In effect, the Bainbridge men said,
"We have the business all lined up for you all you have to
do is provide the facilities."
We'll guarantee you, if the St. Joe Paper Company or
any other firm should walk in our door and say, "Wesley,
get your shop ready, we are going to give you our business,"
We can tell you we would make the utmost haste to make
ready for what we would consider a windfall.
Here Port St. Joe is offered just such an opportunity
by the City of Bainbridge and by new industry locating here
that they can use our fine natural harbor. What are we going
to do about it? Are we going to wait on some other port to
develop and take this business?
You can bet we have the best location to offer, or the-
business wouldn't come looking for us they would be hard
to get. We believe in seizing the opportunity and doing all
possible to build Port St. Joe up as a water shipping city.
Water shipping built New Orleans, Mobile and many
other great port cities. It can do the same for us, too, if we
will but prepare ourselves and give it half a chance.

Loan Aproved For Dead

TALLAHASSEE-A onmeback by West Florida's Dead Lakes as
one of the state's top sports fishing resorts appeared assured lues-
day when the Internal Improvement Fund trustees agrea' to advance
$100,000 to help build a tumbler dam across the Lakes.
-Only a few years back the Dead Lakes which spread across Gulf
and Calhoun counties were tamous for the size and quantity of the
bass, bream and shellcrackers taAt.n by sports fishermen.
Then drought and construction

ing raised at the local level. The
dam will hold the present water

lakes to their former level.
A special fishing permit fee and
levy of one mill on Gulf and Cal-

supply the matching money needed
by the counties. The two counties

The Port St. Joe Volunteer Fire
Department received instruction at
Tyndall Air Force Base, Thursday,
July 17. On this date, Tyndall was
host to fire departments of sur-

pattern of Tyndall aircraft. Fire-
men from Tallahassee, Chattahoo-
chee, Quincy, Wewahitchka, Pana-
ma City, Pleasant Hill and P'ort St.
Joe were in attendance. The course
of instruction dealt with plane iden-
tification and the proper method of
shutting off all power on jet planes.
Most instruction was on the pro-
per manner to release the pilot
from the plane. All jets have auto-
matic ejectors for the pilots to be
ejected from his disabled aircraft,
and if a plane crashes and the pilot
is still in the craft this presents a

Mr. Willis noted that a deep wa-
ter sea port would greatly increase
the barge traffic and tonnage thru
Bainbridge. In making their origin-
al report on the feasibility of a
spoxit at Banlibridge, they stated
that they expected 37,000 tons to
be shipped through the port. Mr.
Willis reported that in the year
ending June 1958, 75,428 tons were
shipped through the port or more
than double that which they anti-
cipated. It might be pointed out
that the port hasn't been in opera-
tion but for a short while. It was
noted that this total could have
been increased, had there been suf-
ficient storage warehouses avail-
able. These warehouses are sche-

That the city set up a zoning plan.
He noted that cooperation of the

Planting Improved Permanent
Good, improved permanent pas
tures are a must in a modern cat-
tle operation. Cattle must have
roughage and improved pasture
grasses are one of our best and
cheapest sources of roughage.
So It will pay you to evaluate
your pasture-cattle situation thor-
oughly now. If you need more per-
manent pastures, the warm, moist
summer months are good periods
to start a new pasture. But be sure
to plan your procedure carefully
You need to give special consid-
eration to pastures you establish
by sprigging-such as Pangola,
Bermuda and other Southern grass
Attention to six points will help
you do a better job of pasture es-
First, be sure you have a source
of strong, live planting material.
The best way to do this is to plant
your own small increase nursery.
Of course, you would have to do
this about a year before you plan
to use the sprigs.
In planting such a nursery, se-
lect the most favorable site, but
avoid old crop land where weeds
are a problem. One acre can plant
100 acres of pasture if you plant
at two or three different dates.
Fertilize your nursery liberally,
but don't use too much nitrogen.
Second, lime and fertilize the
new pasture properly at planting.
Follow proven recommendations
for applications of these materials.
Third, make your planting by
sprigging in moist soil, during the
period when it rains frequently.
Plant the sprigs as deeply as pos-
sible, but be sure that the tips are
exposed. You can plant with a disc
harrow or special planters.
For the fourth point, delay graz-
Ing the newly planted pasture for
awhile, until the new sprigs begin
to grow. The young plants need
time to become established and
develop an extensive root system.
Fifth, if weeds grow up before
the grass, use a mowing machine
or chemicals to eliminate thia cost-
Finally, be sure to add nitrogen
as the new pasture becomes estab-
lished to keep it growing rapidly.
After about two months, apply
about 100 pounds of ammonium ni-
trate or 200 pounds of sodium ni-
Remember, rapid establishment
of'your new pastures means quick-
er dollar returns from grazing

doctors, nurses and our many
friends who were so faithful to
assist and encourage us during the
illness and death of our beloved

Home of the giant Eglin Air Force Training Fielid,
with 350,000 acres or over half of the county's acreage,
Okaloosa County was created in 1915. Once Indian ter-
ritory, many Indian burial mounds and other traces of
early Indian occupation have been found here. The
very name Okaloosa comes from the Choctaw language
meaning "black water." Except for timber cutting, the
scenic beauty remains untouched in the county's interior,
with the tourist trade found only on the coastal beaches.
In progressive Okaloosa County, and throughout
Florida, the United States Brewers Foundation works
constantly to assure the sale of beer and ale under pleas-
ant, orderly conditions. Believing that strict law enforce-
ment serves the best interest of the people of Florida,
the Foundation stresses close cooperation with the Armed
Forces, law enforcement and governing officials in its
continuing "self-regulation" program.

In the effort to find a subject or
today's column, somehow, my thot
turns to traveling. Maybe it's con-
nected with my traveling home re-
cently and back here again. No
doubt the deep desire to travel
home again tomorrow, for
keeps is also in the limelight. It
is our plan and hope to do this
about December this year. It's a
wonderfully refreshing thought.
Will you think along with me on
:his subject of traveling?
You'll agree 'traveling' is a tre-
mendous and most important activi-
ty and industry in this country and
the world. It's far
SLoo big to Cover in
1 a small column
i and we'll only try
to hit a few high
"' and low spots.

,- means and rea-
s A sons for travel.

BOYLES'" the deep, distant
waters, even underneath the ground
for business pleasure and
sundry reasons. An endless stream
of humanity surges in and out .
and on airports, railroad sta-
tions, bus stations and highways.
A good birds eye view would prob-
ably look like millions of bees
working in a hive, or industrious
ants hauling in their food supply.
It is, indeed, a whopping business
as well as an interesting and edu-
cational adventure for all mankind.
Even the lonely foot traveler con-
tinues his weary trudge, trusting
and looking for a lucky lift towards
his destination if he has one.
All the risks and dangers in travel-
ing are submerged by the desires
and necessities to get some place
as fast as possible. In the process
it's a startling and sobering fact
to see the death toll continue to
rise and it behooves each traveler
to exercise the utmost safety pre-
cautions on all occasions. Our own
traveling has been limited to rela-
tively short distances and mostly>
in the eastern part of the U. S.
While it has always been unduly
tiresome to this writer It has also
been filled with interest and ad-
venture most of the time. We have
many pleasant memories of vaca-
tion trips and visits to our native
states (,North Carolina and Virgin-
ia), along with some thoughts of
'the difficulties involved. The best
trips were when the family quartet
was present. A foursome, at least,
is desirable in many of life's exper-
iences including pleasure and busi-
ness sometimes two's a com-
pany! Traveling alone is not always
conducive to one's pleasure even
when necessary. In a car it's a fine
advantage to have the second dri-
ver when the distance is several
hundred miles. This occurred re-
cently when the wife and I left
home on July 8 and arrived in
Maryland the evening of the 9th
with an overnite stop at Columbia,
S. C. It's peach and watermelon
time in Ga. and S. C. and my wife
was tempted at every roadside
stand and truck bargain prices
. we're still feasting on these de-
licious fruits of the sun, tree and
vine,. even peach preserves. The
cooler weather farther north added
lo the pleasure and comfort of the
journey. Now, we know that one
can get worn out, annoyed, stuck;
busted and disgusted traveling. In
fact we got stuck on the first eve-
ning meal and my (Scotch) wife
suggested w. ecould get a better-
deal by negotiating the main meal
at noon with a burger or frank
in the evening. Now, those of you
-who insist on the main evening
meal well, you'll pay the price
and take a greater risk (is our
opinion) Anyway you take it tra-
vieing has its goods and bads. May-
be one of the worst parts is just
being absent from home, friends
and seeing only strange faces from
all walks of life.
You'll note on a plane, train or
bus the tired, anxious, maybe sad
faces, while others are eager,
happy and glad. For some, travel-
ing is commonplace for others
it's a novel adventure filled with
interest and pleasure. Some are
traveling of a sad necessity and
others make their livelihood tra-
veling. Truly, it's a big business.
Some travelers may be just gett-
ing away from where they were,
looking for the proverbial pot of
gold at the end of the rainbow.
Maybe later they return to the
doorstep that was left and find
far greater satisfactions, riches and
rewards just where they had not
been seen before. maybe unaware

POINTERS FOR PICNICKERS
Nutritionists and' outdoor
chefs have some specific ad-
vice for picnic-goers:
Prepare sandwiches to suit
occasions and conditions under
which they will be kept and
served; to keep open-face or
unwrapped sandwiches moist,
do not cover with a damp cloth
-cover with a moisture-vapor
proof material and refrigerate;
carefully made sandwiches
may be stored for 12 to 24
'hours at temperatures under
50 degrees Fahrenheit.
Melted" butter or margarine
are absorbed by bread and are
not recommended for spread-
ing; before preparing sand-
wiches, make fillings and gar-
inishes, refrigerating them if
'necessary; wrap sandwiches
individually to prevent flavors
or fillings from mingling.
It may sound unbelievable,
;but there are recipes for ghost
burgers, sweetheart sandwich-
ies, and clown, sailboat and top
'hat sandwiches. To make your
4th of July complete, there is
the firecracker roll sandwich.
The ingredients of this list-
as you might imagine-are far
too numerous to list.
Americans large, medium
and small-will eat one billion,
five hundred million meals
outdoors in 1958.
In their picnic pursuits, they
will consume 10% billion buns
during the current year-and
just about that many hamburg-
ers and hot dogs.
And all this is in addition to
the 40 million loaves of bread
sold each day, and to the mil-
lions of pounds of pies, cakes,
cookies, cereals and crackers.
These figures come from
E. E. Kelley, Jr., president of
the American Bakers Associa-
tion, who has a firm belief
that outdoor eating, whether
it be strictly a family affair or
one including company, helps
build family and community

oxide that the plant produces from
sea water is a good seller. He re-
ported that his firm had always
been able to sell all they could pro-
duce in their other plant in St.
Louis, Michigan, with a guarantee
that they could sell more if it was
available. He told the Chamber
that MCC had examined the coast
from Port St. Joe to Texas and
found Port St. Joe to be best suit-
ed to their needs.
DeMaestre had nothing but
high praises for the friendly at-
mosphere that he and his people
had encountered in Port St. Joe.
"This definitely had a deciding
power in our decision to build in
Port St. Joe. We like to do busi-
ness where we are wanted. And
we feel that we are wanted here."
DeMaestre said that the new
plant will employ about 60 people
when it first goes into operation
and about 90 to 100 when it is ex-
panded in another two years.
"Most of the labor will be local

Rotary Told of
Need For Port
The Port St. Joe Rotary Club
heard from a well-informed out-
sider what has been talked about
here for the past 25 years-that
the greater part of Port St. Joe's
future lies in the development of
her fine natural harbor for ship-
E. J. Willis, of Bainbridge, Ga.,
pleaded with the Rotary Club and
Port St. Joe to develop its harbor
for the handling of foreign shipping
and for a transfer point for river
traffic in freight. "We have the fa-
cilities to handle the river traffic
and the customers wanting to ship"
Willis said. "All we need is a deep
water sea port to take in foreign
and long distance freight for the
transferring to river vehicles." This
is what Willis wants Port St. Joe
to do-develop its port for wate.-
freight and act as a terminal for
river and sea traffic to and from
Bainbridge, Ga., and other inland
ports due to be constructed on the
Three River's System.
Willis said that our port and
deep water were our "ace in the
hole" to''future greatness. "Peopile
beginning to realize that there is
a definite need for cheap vater
transportation, and the swing to
this method of drayage is greater
every day". Willis said that water
traffic carries big loads cheaply
and therefore is in.demand. He stat-
ed that competition is keen for wa-
ter transport and getting keener
and the best route will get the
trade. Willis said that the Bain-
bridge, even though not in full op-
eration, had already more than
doubled the tonnage it was expect-
ed the port would handle.
Guests of the club were B. R.
Hawks, Brewton, Ala.; Hub Robin-
son, Evergreen, Al'a.; B. S. Gordon,
Panama City; Marty Begley, Rich-
ard Porter and Harry Saunders of
Port St. Joe.
