Tom Owens, Superintendent of
the Gulf County Board of Public
Instruction spoke to the Rotary
Club last Thursday expanding some

Owens began by calling atten-
tion to the large increase this year
in school enrollment. He said that
in the past, the school enrollment
in the Port St. Joe area has been
growing by the rate of two to
three percent every year. This year
the average daily attendance took
a seven percent increase or 83 pu-
pils more per day than last year.
The county as a whole has an in-
crease of 195 white children and
22 colored children average daily
attendance more than last year.
Dwelling on last week's story
concerning the School Board's
planning for the future, Owens cal-
led attention to the fact that
growth means expansion of school
facilities other than classrooms,
such as lunch rooms, kitchens,
heating, rest rooms, libraries, lab-

'Mr. Dickens was advised that
this application for service to Mi-
chigan Chemical Comipany could
include the requirements of the
domestic and commercial users in
Port St. Joe if the franchise holder
would support the application of
the Houston Company before the
Federal Power Commission. This
would include testimony from en-
gineers, City officials and domes-
tic and commercial users to prove
the feasibility. It was pointed out
that Port St. Joe cannot plan on
receiving gas from 'the line that
will supply Michigan Chemical
Company's new plant here in Port
St. Joe. The line to the plant will
be a 'private line paid for by the
Chemical Company to supply their
own gas needs.

-t ap-plication for gas reserves
which was the reason Port St. Joe
was left off of the original pipe-
line and now it is very imperative
that action be taken by April 1 of
this year or Port St. Joe may not
obtain natural gas for many years.
'It was pointed out by Mr. Dick-
ens that Port St. Joe would be at
a competitive disadvantage with
other communities who have natur-
al gas available to attract industry

ed that arrangements are being
made with Florida Securities Com-
mission to authorize the corpora-
tion to sell' a substantial amount of
stock to residents of Port St. Joe
who may desire to have an inter-
est in the corporation. /
The City Commission introduced
and placed on first reading a fran-
chise ordinance granting St. Joe
Natural Gas Co., Inc. a franchise
for a period of 30 years. This ordin-
ance is a model ordinance furnish-
ed by the Florida League of Muni-
cipalities for the granting of natur-
at gas franchises.
The City Commission set a meet-
ing for Wednesday, February 25,
at 10:00 o'clock A.M. for further
consideration of the franchise and
agreed to set the date of the fran-
chise election at that time. It was
pointed out to the Commission that
this election should be held as
quickly..as possible in order to com-
ply with the April 1 deadline for the
hearing before the Federal Power
Commission in Washington.

Pursuant.to the provisIons of Ordinance No. 174X adopted by the
City Commission of the City of Port St. Joe at the Regular Meet-
ing of February 3, 1959, it is determined that the present set of
S.registration books of the City of Port St. Joe are antiquated and
contain the names of persons who are now removed, deceased, or
illegally 'registered, therefore effective February 4, 1959 a new
complete set of registration books has been provided by the City
Commission for the re-registration and re--istration of all qualified
electors residing in the City linit-, of the City of Port St. Joe, Flor-
ida. Thei new REtgi-ctiton Books will "be open at the office of the
SCity Clr-ik beginning on the 4th day of February 1959 and shall re-
main open for re-registration and registration of all qualified elec-
tors within the City between the hours of 9:00 o'clock A.M. and

O'clock Saturdays each day, Sundays and holidays excluded until
ten days prior to the holding of any Municipal election. The next
Regular Municipal election for the election of two City Commis-
sioners will be held on April 7, 1959, therefore the Registration

We are still in the exploratory
stage,. Mr. Saunders said, but we
know that our primary objective
will be to help develop greater pub-
lic awareness of the urgent need
for solving this nation's pollution
problems. We shall also try to a-
sist in preventing onerous federal
legislation which would put an im-
possible financial burden upon in-
dustries and municipalities.
The Mississippi Valley Associa-
tion is a 40-year-old, non-profit or-
ganization devoted, to fostering all
phases of water resource develop-
ment including flood control, navi-
gation, irrigation, domestic and in-

hydroelectric power. It is supported
by business, industry and agricul-
ture throughout the 23 Mississippi
valley states. Offices are main-
tained in St. Louis, Omaha, Chica-
go, New Orleans, Kansas City and
Washington, D. C.
The Association has embarked on
a pollution control program, Mr.
mended that Congress appropriate
sufficient funds to the U. S. Pub-
lic Health Service to accelerate its
waiter control program and that the
various states encourage the activi-
ties of their own pollution control
In addition to serving on the Pol-
lution Advisory Committee of the
Mississippi Valley Association, Mr.
Saunders has, for the past two
years been serving as a member
of the Committee on Industrial Wa-
ter Use, Pollution Abatement, Wild-
life and Recreation for the National

So far, whenever our na-
tion's economy has- needed
expansion, a new industry
has. sprung up to help the-
country go ahead.
The automobile industry,
employing millions, was fol-
lowed closely by the develop-
ment of radio and radio
broadcasting' to make more-
millions of jobs. Then came
the airplane industry, air
conditioning, plastics, tele-.
vision, frozen foods, to
change our lives some more.
The trading stamp industry,
while not new, belongs to
this expansion group and has
been one of the fastest grow-
ing of all. Today it directly
benefits the living of the more
than 3 out of 4 Florida fami-
lies who save trading stamps.
Obviously, an industry af-
fecting such a large propor-
tion of Florida's population
must bring far-reaching ben-
fits for Florida's economy.
And it does. In 1957 the
trading stamp industry
bought $764,000 worth of
products from Florida's man-
tiffacturers. In one way or
another, it provided employ-
merit for 289 Florida people
'in many different industries.
The people in the trading
stamp, industry, its merchan-
dise and redemption stores,
its warehouses and transpor-
tation and all the activity that
goes on within it are helping
to develop Florida.
Thus it seems plain that
the trading stamp industry
along with the 913,800 Flor-
ida women it serves has be-
come, like other expansion
industries, a living, vital part
of our State's economy.

Chemical and its customers prob-
ably will require enlarging of the
companyls joint-venture bromiine-
plant at El Dorado, Arkansas be-
fore the end of 1959.
Concerning the future, Mr. Mar-
vin said, "With long-range plans
f ii.,il.rd for4 the next six years,
your company expect,:. to continue
its active program of expansion
through 1959." These plans will be
implemented by the company's re-
--.ir,..l activitie- which in 1958 were
'at an all-time high level.
There was considerable growth
in the number of individual stock-
holders of Michigan Chemical Cor-
poration during 1958 with an in-
crease to 1981 from 1309 a year ago.
Mark Frimodeg, manager of the
Michigan Chemical Company ex-
plained something of the operation
of this new industry to Port St. Joe
to the Kiwanis Club at their meet-'
The prime funct;un of the plant
will be to extrat 'uagnesiuem-,:xide
from sea water. He said that Port
St. Joe was an ideal locationn for
this type operation. due to th- high
salinity content of the bay water.
The company will use .sidell to
get a source of lime. which they
will miix with sea water to extract
the chemical. The system contains
a number of large settling tanks
which are -used to settle the chem-
ical out of tlire- ivnt.-i with le lime
carrier. T'.' c ni,.i', %%i pump
in 15,000 3all-jis of sea water a
minute from which they will ex-
tract I.,." tons of the raw material
Frimodeg said that the market is
,goud for their product, and that the
luocal plant is being built to exiaud
Sixth little outlay. He said that the
market now looks as if they will
begin to expand shortly-i",-.ibly

1,131 Jehovah's Witnessse, gath-
ered in convention at Pensacola's
Grotto Hall, were told Sunday af-
ternoon that "Prophetic promises
in the Bible point us to an earth
ruled over by God's government,
th 'Kingdom of Heavens' and he
climax of trouble which began in
1914 is evidence we are in the 'last
days' of the corrupt world and are
nearing the glorious new world!"
The speaker was J. W. Filson,
district supervisor for the group in
their final session. Referring to
Jesus' prophecy that witnesses
would be raised up at this crucial
time who would announce Jeho-
vah's Kingdom just prior to the
old world's end, he pointed out that
"Jehovah's Witnesses, feeling keen-
ly the responsibility thus falling
upon Christians, have gone all-out
to carry this important news of
God's Kingdom to all the earth,
reaching in 1958, 175 countries, is-
lands of the seas, provinces, colo-
nies, etc. They have done exhaus-
tive research in scripture and con-
temporary news leading them to
the conclusion that life in para-
dise is soon to be realized by those
of this generation who serve God."

Port St. Joe were Miss Lottie Hall,
