To Second Primary
Despite the fabled "light vote"
on an off election year, 2-971 of
Gulf County's registered voters
went to the polls Tuesday to cast
The voters appeared to perfect-
ly satisfied with some of their
present elected officials, but they
made a clean sweep of the school
board members seeking re-election,
defeating both incumbents Clyde
W. Brogdon and Fennon Talley.
Representative Cecil G. Costin,
Jr., held a firm hold on his seat in
the State Legislature with an un-
expected resounding victory in the
first primary. Costin received 1,-
941 votes to both his opponent's
total of 1,011 besting them by near-
ly two to one votes.
Only one county office will be
un for a run-off on September 30
and that is the County Commission
post being vacated by J. C. Price,
who chose not to seek re-election.
Going into the second primary will
be Coleman W. Tharpe, who com-
peted with Price four years ago,
with the biggest majority of 1,130
votes going against Walter Graham

cast 1,074 for the winner, Holland
and 1,885 for the loser, Pepper. The
statewide vote gave Holland 411,-
345 votes and Pepper 320,085. It
was forecast by local politicians
that Pepper would carry Gulf by
more of a margin than he did.
Gulf County, like the rest of
Florida, has apparently become ac-
customed to having Wilbur King

The report titled, "The
Marketing and Transportation
Situation" showed that be-
tween 1948 and 1957 the aver-
age price of bread has in-
creased from 13.9c per pound
to 18.8c per pound. The farm-
er's share of this price re-
ceived for ingredients-flour,
shortening, sugar declined
from 3.4c to 3.2c.
"Increases in wages and
salaries (paid by the baker),
since they are the largest part
of the (baker's) expense, ac-
counted for the majorgrowth
in the baker-wholesale mar-
gin," the report states. "Be-
tween 1951 and 1957, average
hourly earnings for bakery
employees rose from $1.43 to
$1.92. Indirect labor payments
in the form of fringe benefits
and social security taxes also
made advances and in 1957
probably amounted to more
than five times the 1945 level."
"Combined costs of adver--
tising and promotion and of
bakery products bought for
resale are more than three
times what they were in
1945," the report continued.
"It appears that packaging
and wrapping materials also
have risen in about the same
proportion. Delivery expense,
other than wages and salary,
ha.s more than doubled and

Handling During Go
By F. R. WEED
Dist. Farm Forester
The Florida Forest Service needs
pine cones, bearers of seed which
will produce next year's pine seed-
Since the service controls little
timberland to collect on and less
manpower available for collecting,
.it leans solidly on private individ-
uals for actual collection of the
burrs. For his troubles, the collec-
tor is paid $1.00 a bushel for slash
pine cones, and $1.35 for loblolly.
A fe windustrious individuals in
good cone areas will make $20.00
a day. A local pine cone dealer is
needed for Gulf County.
Cone gathering time is short,
for though the burrs are a two-year
rather than an annual crop, nature
is none-ese-less demanding in her
harvest schedule. The seeds in-
side aren't ripe until the first week
of September and they don't stay
in the cones but .three or four
weeks after they ripen. Then the
warm sun opens up the cones and
the winged seed escape to float
down to the ground on the wind-
the ancient means of rejuvenating
The pine cone gatherer uses a
minimum of equipment, usually
carrying along a light ladder, a
forked stick and a croker sacr.
He gets up into the tree tops with
the help of the ladder, pushes the
prickly burrs off with the forked
stick and sacks them up. Then he
takes them to a local pine cone
dealer, who is usually a store own-
er, a filling station opreator, a far-
mer, or other business man. The
dealer pays the collector for the
cones and stores them until the
forest service sends a truck around
to pick them up.
To find out more about collecting
pine cones, .contact your County

Forest Survey crews headed by
Joe McClure of the Southeastern
Forest Experiment Station In North

the tri-county area of Gulf, Calhoun
and Jackson counties.
The 18-man team of foresters are

Information gathered by these
men will show the rate at which
our timber is being grown as well
as the rate it is being used in its
various forms by Florida's big wood
industry. The total volume of
standing timber of many individual
species will also be figured.
Estimates of forest damage from
fire, insects, and diseases will be
made. These figures will be com-
piled along with the others on tim-
ber information. In order to best
accomplish htis task, the survey
teams must have access to the for-
ested land in the county. All the
landowners will be contacted at
some time during the next few
weeks. A valuable service will be
done if the landowners will coop-
erate by making their land freely
accessible to the survey teams
while in the area.
With the field work covering a
full year, it will be some time be-
fore the figures and information
will be published in a U. S. De-
partment of Agriculture bulletin.
The most recent publication of
such information was compiled ten
years ago from a similar survey.

Our Progress Is In The Future
Many glowing reports were given at the quarterly meeting
of the Chamber of Commerce Monday night, on the growth and
expected growth of Port St. Joe.
Port St. Joe has received three new industries during the
past six months that will provide employment for approximately
100 people and one of which will provide employment,for about
50 people part time. All of this is good. In addition, word has
been received that Port St. Joe's port will receive a half million
dollars worth of work this year to make the harbor more attractive
for shipping purposes. Surely Port St. Joe's future is bright.
But those present were brought abruptly back to the pres-
ent by Tom Coldewey, chairman of the Trade-At-Home Commis-
tee when he arose to make his report. "In spite of all this future
promise we have seen no Port St. Joe merchants driving limo-
sines up the streets lately". What Coldewey was referring to
was the current-hard times in Port St. Joe due to irregular mill
operations of the St. Joe Paper Company. Truly this has put a
kink in the economy of Port St. Joe for the present. But, we do
not expect it to last for much longer.
During these times, Port St. Joe must stick together, mer-
chant and consumer alike. If at any time in the history of our
town the need to trade at home was needed, it is now. Your
local merchants feel the pinch of curtailed buying power just as
you do. Still, our town can surge forward even during this cri-
sis if we will all just scratch one another's back. Just take a look
around you and you will see most anything you can find in an-
Editor Wallace Finlay of the County Record in Blounts-
town had this to say recently in his newspaper:
"Our continuing campaign to get Calhoun Countians to
spend their money in Calhoun County is somewhat like the
clergy's battle against sin. Everybody agrees with us and the
preachers, but they continue spending their money elsewhere,
just as they continue to sin.
"We are aware that occasions arise when people have to
spend money away from home. We are not talking about those
occasions. We are referring to the buying of thinks like Hanes
underwear, Arrow shirts, and Esquire socks, and Florsheim shoes,
in neighboring towns. To our way of thinking this does not
"Our local merchants have most of the things you want. If
you want something a bit out of the ordinary, say a tuxedo, our
boys can get it for you and you can get just the kind you want,
too. We submit that the next time you want something special
you talk to our local retailers. We thing you will be agreeably
"It is certain that when you start raising money for band
uniforms, or some other pet project of yours, the money is going
to come from people living here. It is also certain that the
more you spend with local people the better service and stock
they can give you. We do not believe- there is any argument
We think that Wallace stated the case very aptly. The only
thing that we wish to add to this is to urge you to give it a trial.
You might just discover that what we are saying, is true.
