Puiblieity given the various agri-
cultural poisons by manufacturers
and farm leaders has helped very
-much in preventing 'such accidents.
But there are still some injuries
and deaths that can be directly at-
tributed to carelessness with those
poisons.
According to the World Health
organization of the United Nations,
this country and other, countries
reporting showed more than 2,500
deaths from poisoning in a recent
year. A 'large 'majority of itheile
deaths, occurred among children
under 10 years of age. Of the fa-
talities among childrne from npesti-
cides, 9'0 percent of the children
were under five years of age.
Therefore, the need for keeping poi-
sons 'out of 'the reach of children
cannot be stressed .too much.

ON THE 'FARM
You can use a waste product-
sawduast-to help eliminate or re-

lack of 'organic 'matter in many of
our soils. It will pay growers to
use all' available wood wastes for
maintaining humus whenever it Is
economically feasible &to"do so.
Sawdust 'decomposes more quick-
ly than such wood 'wastes 'as chips,
shavings and bark. It also absorbs
'and holds water 'better.
Four practical 'ways. of using
sawdust are: 'as a mulch, as a com-
post and as a direct application to
the soil.


Sawdust makes an excellent
mulch, "but you 'will have to supply
extra nitrogen when using it. Used
this way. sawdust decomposes, but
at a less rapid rate than when it
is mixed with the soil.

CAN THIS BE CHRISTMAS?
What meaneth all this fuss and worry?
Whence go these crowds to run and scurry?-
Why all the lights -- the Christmas trees?
And the silly "fat man," tell me, please -
Why, don't you know? This is the day
When everybody should be gay,
For this is Christmasl
So this is Christmas, do you say?
But where is Christ this Christmas Day?
Has He been lost among the throng?
His voice drowned out by empty song?
No, He's not here -- you'll find Him where
Some humble soul now kneels in prayer;
There you'll find Christ -- no tChristmas.
But see the many fickle thousands
Who gather on this Christmas Day,
Whose hearts have never yet been opened,
Or said to Him, "Come in to stay."
In countless homes the candles burning,
In countless hearts expectant yearning
For gifts and presents, food and fun,
And laughter till the day is done.
But not a tear or grief or sorrow
For Him so poor He had to borrow
A crib, a colt, a boat, a bed
Where He could lay His weary head.
I'm sick of all this empty celebration,
Of feasting, drinking, recreation;
I'll go instead to Calvary. '
And t.lre I'll kneel with those who know
The meaning of that manger low,
And find the CHRIST not Chirstmas.
I leap by faith across the years
To that great day when He appears
The second time, to rule and reign,
To end all sorrow, death and pain.
In endless bliss we then shall dwell
With Him who saved our souls from Hell,
And worship HIM not Christmas!

Rambler's rise to a top position has put
us 'in position to undertake a new cru-
sade. This program, which could provide
greater individual and national benefits
than any we've yet undertaken, calls
for customer progress sharing.
As volume goes up, costs come
down. So, sharing economies that
would result from a 50% Rambler
sales gain over last year for the peri-
od December through March could
provide payments to customers of
$18,698,062.
.. :But, before presenting our new
Rambler crusade, let me review some
-.highlights of the first one. -
When we forged our basic Rambler
concepts, U.S. cars- were in a size,
horsepower and styling-change race
that cost the car buyer money. So, we
developed the compact, economical,
modernly engineered Rambler.
CONSUMER BENEFITS FROM
LOWER PRICES
Because of low volume, we had to
price our first Rambler Americans
about equal with Chevrolet and Ford,
traditionally "lowest priced."-
As our output and economies in-
creased, we shared the resulting eco-
nomic advantages with Rambler cus-
tomers. Despite inflation, we kept prices
low. We also concentrated on durability
and quality. That is why Rambler ex-
cels in trouble-free operation, as shown
by trade surveys made by others.
What has this done? It has in--
creased our sales-made us a vigorous
new competitive factor, compelling all
competitors to introduce compact cars.
Their compact cars unquestionably
are better buys than their big cars, be-
cause their big cars don't have the
compacts' .advanced engineering.
Despite these moves to meet Ram-
bler competition, Rambler American
models are now-priced not only below
competitive big cars but below their
economy compacts as well.
In addition, Ramblers provide cus-

Monkeys are caught by filling a coconut shell with chopped coconut meat. The monkeys grasp a

Shows Increase

The U. S. Department. of com-
merce has released the opicial re-

County, as. well as the state of
Florida.
According to rthe census, Gulf
now has a population of .9,937. Of
this total 4,217 live in 'u ban areas.
Other areas of the county, having
a population of 1,000 ,to 2,500 make
up 3,322 of Gulf's population while
2,398 people in Gulf are classified
as rural.
Breaking down the township
populations in Gulf, the report
shows -that the City of Port St. Joe
has a population of 4,217. That area

Legislature To Revamp State Textbook

TALLAHASSEE-A legislative tion, for an appropriation by the
study committee set its .sights this legislautre to modernize the 'teach-
week on revamping the state 'text- ing of science and mathematics in
book laws to speed up procedures Florida junior and 'senior high
whereby more modern textbooks schools through in-service eduea-

and the more obsolete ones dis-
;carded.
Some members of the Interim
Committee on Education also said
there was a need for changes which
would give laymen -a "more realis-
tic -opportunity" to participate in
textbook adoptions.
Such changes, the committee
said, would help Florida's public
schools keep up. with the most ad-
vanced teaching 'techniques and
would help root -out 'any un-Ameri-
can ideas which might be instilled
in pupils' minds through 'textbooks.
The 'changes will be worked out
a later meetings 'of the committee
and' may (be taken up at public
hearings before the 1961 Legisla-
ture convenes in April.
Progress Reviewed
The committee reviewed progress
on 12 phases of its interim studies
'in a daylong session, but came up
with ,but few recommendations in
final form.
Ed Henderson, executive secre-
tary of the Florida Education As-
sociai -4- i )sa' i +w1-u' --e'U4'


-Stone said Florida during the
past two years had upgraded its
curriculum in physics to the point
where it now was regarded as a
model for the nation.
He said similar work needed to
be done in the fields of chemistry,
biology, general science and math-
ematics for 7th through 12th grades.
,Such a program would -cost an
estimated $717,000 over a four-year
period, but Stone recommended
that the state proceed slowly and
on a voluntary basis, for ,best re-
sults.

Bob Walton,. Scout Executive
from Panama City -gave a very

club members, "Are you known- in

Rep. Emmett Roberts of Palm
Beach County, the committee chair-
man, 'said one of ,the difficulties
was that textbooks, noce adopted,
were kept in use so 'long -that iphil-
ososphies and methods popular in
one era were changed and outmod-
ed long before the textbooks were
completely out of the schools.
No Intelligent Analysis
"We've been -operating on 'the ba-
sis of cost and haven't ,been making

The committee gave general en-

Walton said that it usiUally falls

HARLAND 0. PRIDGEON,
Tax Collector, Gulf County.
After due consideration, the-re
was a motion by Comm. Strick-
Land, seconded (by Comm. Tharpe
Ln'd unanimously carried, that the
tax collector be released from the
1959 tax roll, subject to the cor-
rectness of 'said roll upon -an audit
by the State Auditing Department.
Pursuant to Notice published ac-
cording to law, the following bids
were received, opened :and consid-
ered:
Burford-Toothaiker Tractor Com-
pany offered the following equip-
ment:
1 Caterpillar No. 955 Traxcavator
front-end loader 'as advertised for,
and one caterpillar No. 12 Motor
Grader as advertised for a total
price of $38,780.00.
If the 'County purchases only one
of these 'two machines, the price
would be:
1 Caterpillar No. 955 Traxcavator
$18,049.00.
1 Caterpillar No. 12 Motor Grad-
er, $21,341.00.
Ray-Brooks Machinery Company,
Inc., offered the following equip-
ment:
1 TD 9 International Fran-end.
Loader as advertised, and 1 Gallon

total price of $40,500.00.
1- International TD9 four-in-one
front-end loader, not advertised for
at a total price of $41,800.00.
If the County purchases only one
of the above machines tthe price
would be:
1 International TD9 front-end
loader, as advertisde, $19,767.88.
1 International TD9 four-in-one
front-end loader, not advertised for
$21,097.91.
1 Gallon Motor Grader, $21,805.74.
After consideration and discus-
sion, there was a motion tby Comm.
Strickland, to purchase both pieces
of equipment from Burford-Thooth-
aker Tractor Company at $48,780.00.
Ihis motion-failed because of no
second.
After further discussion, Comm.
Strickland .stated that because in
his opinion the Caterpillar equip-
ment was the best equipment of-
fered an because it is the lowest
bid by $1,820.00, he will renew his
original motion. This motion re-
ceived no second.
SComm. Cooper moved to purchase
the International four-in-one front-
end loader aid the Gallon motor
grader at $41,800.00. Motion second-
ed by 'Comm. Croxton, upon vote
the following voted: AYE: Coop-
er, Croxton. NA Y: Strickland,
Tharpe. The chairman did not vote
'but declared the motion dead.
Comm. elect Kennedy stated that
,he had no voice in this matter, but
he was very interested in the coun-
ty making the best bid, because he
would be on 'the Board after Jan-
uary 31, 1961, and would have part
in paying for the balance due.
Whereupon, -there was a motion
by Comm. Tharpe, to purchase Cat-
erpillar motor grader at $21,341.00
and the International four-in-one
front-end Toader at $21,097.91, mak-
ing a total of $42,438.91. No second
to this motion.
Comm. Strickland stated that the
advertisement did not ask for a
bid on the four-in-one loader, but
only a front end loader and a grad-
er, which is badly needed at this
time; that he thought this County
should purchase 'the low `bid at this
time, and renewed his original mo-
'lion to purchase both pieces of
equipment from the Burford-Tooth-
aker Tractor 'Company at $38,780.
Motion seconded by Commissioner
Tharpe. Upon vote, the following
v o e d: A Y E, Strickland and
Tharpe. NAY: Croxton. Motlo' i
failed.
After further consideration, Conm-
missioner Strickland moved that |
ill bids be rejected: that the coun-
.y re-advertise for the same equip-
ment bids to be received on Jan-
uary 6, 1961, at 6:30 p.m.: that $10,- I
0(00.00 :be paid on each piece of
equipment, with the balance to be
paid on or before January 1, 1962.
Motion seconded by Commissioner
Tharpe and upon vote was duly
carried.
The Board voted to meet at 7:30
'a.m., January 3, 1961, for the pur-
pose of organizing for the year
1961.
After discussion, the Board voted
uLanimously to employ Robert
Jones to set up a property record
required by law.
The Board voted t*.o remove Marie
Hobbs from the indigent roll after
this month and discontinue pay-
ments to Lillie Price as of this
date.

right of way deed for a new road
in White City and the same was
approved and ordered recorded.

all County officials that will take

population bills passed by the


State Legislature in the past years
and informed the Board the effect
these bills would have under the
ropuelation ,bracket of 9,937 as re-
vealed by 'the last census. The

meeting.
