FPC ito run a natural gas supply
A request was made Tuesday for
a temporary permit to construct a
,gas line to Port St. Joe to serve the
Michigan Chemical Company. The
Michigan Company is interested in
securing the gas service for their
manufacturing plant here. Accord-
ing to Costin, this temporary per-
mit has a good chance of being ap-
proved and with its subsequent ap-
proval the permanent approval of
a permit for Houston to furnish
the Port St. Joe area with natural
gas would then be only a routine
matter. Costin said that if the tem-
porary approval is given (a deci-
sion is expected on this approval
either this week or early next
week) then natural gas will 'be
available to Port St. Joe by the
end of the year.
Costin said that construction of
a gas transmission line to Port St.
Joe would begin immediately upon
approval. He also stated that the
St. Joe Natural Gas Company will
begin construction of a local dis-
tribution system upon approval of
the FPC for the gas supply line.
Costin said that while several
applications before the FPG for
Florida expansion projects had met
opposition from various fuel inter-
ests, Port St. Joe's application na

Costin stated that immediately
upon approval of the FPC for the

same price subscribed 'by the pres-
ent stockholders, J Lamar Miller,

12 Forest Fires Reported
Already This Year
The Gulf County Forest Service
reports that so far in 1960 there
have been 12 forest fires in Gul
county, burning 115.9. acres. During
the same period last year thera
were 11 fires that 'burned 97.5
acres. This is an increase of one
fire and 18.4 acres burned over the
.same period for 1959.
The Forestry Service says that
all -of these fires but one were due
to carelessness. Ranger Alton Har-
dy urges that care be taken in the
woods to avoid this needless waste
of our natural resources.

Most home makers Trade at their favorite market because
of dependability; they can be sure that they receive the
same quality every time they make a meat purchase.
.- There is only one way we know to provide our customers
with consistent quality, week in and week out throughout
the year, and that is to have trained beef selectors in all of

cattle each and every day, That's why IGA maintains a
staff of beef buyers and selectors whose only responsibility
is to select beef for the TableRite markets that will assure
our customers of consistently fine quality.
We thought you might be interested in seeing a picture
of one of our qualified buyers in a modern beef cooler, who,
after he selects the fine corn-fed beef that will meet the
high standards of the TableRite quality, further protects
and identifies this beef by rolling it with our own copy-

2,061.4-mile Mobilgas Economy Run. That's certified proof that Corvair skimps
on gas costs. It saves other ways, too. Corvair is the only U. S. compact car

compact car that outdoes them all.
Things Corvair gives you that America's other compact cars can't:
Practically flat floor real foot room for

seat gives 17.6 cu. ft. of extra storage space.
Four-wheel independent suspension for

You probably realize already that the mile-
age figures Corvairs recorded in the Mobil-
gas Run are higher than the average driver
can expect. But because the cars met every
kind of driving condition-rugged mountain
grades, long country straightaways, congest.

T "re Votpr of Florida:
The following is a reprint of an article appearing
in the Florida Times Union, Sunday, April 3, 1960:
"Clearwater State Senator Harvie Belser of
Bonifay told groups that one of his primary aims in
enteringf the race for Governor was to give the people
----- a chance to vote for a strong seqreyationist.
He said he thought the voters should have a "clear-cut
choice of voting for a staunch segregationist and a believer in
S., states' rights and constitutional government, or of voting
S"The returns on May 3 will indicate conclusively In which
direction the people of Florida desire to go for the next four
years," he said.
Belser said he'd spent about $10.000.00 on his campaign
GOVERNOR so far and that it all has been contributed in amounts of $50
(Vote For One) or less from ersrns of average or below means."
Would you vote for a man who has a 100% pro legislative
record against RACE MIXING?
HARVIE J. BELSER I X Would you vote for a man who in the Florida Senate in
1957 told Governor Collins that he didn't have fortitude enough
Farris Bryant to fight RACE MIXING and stand up for the RIGHTS, CUS-
arTOMS AND TRADITIONS of the SOUTH?
aydo Burs Would you compare BELSER'S record on segregation legis-
Haydon Burns nation with the record of the other Gubernatorial Candidates?
SE I J Would you vote for a man who is not obligated to the poll-
Doyle E. Carlton, Jr. ticians or vested interests in the state but who is free and will
be free to make the people of Florida a real Governor?
Thomas F. (Ted) David I Would you vote for a man 42 years of age, married, three
F u children, with the following record of governmental experience:
Fred 0. (Bud) Dickinsoni Member Florida State Senate, former member Florida
House of Representatives; former County Attorney, former
George A. Downs Prosecuting Attorney, Veteran World War II, domestic and
overseas service, officer and enlisted man, Member Florida,
Bill Hendrix District of Columbia and American Bar Associations?
This is your fight. Belser is spearheading it for you. Join
John M. McCarty him, help him, and ask your friends and relatives to do likewise.
