Rotary Hears

Easter Message
Rotarian Harry Babbit gave the
prorgam to the Rotary Club last
Thursday, using the Easter theme
for his talk.
Babbitt 'told the Rotarians his def-
inition of the "Three Easters". He
told of the first Easter-the prom-
is of God to 'the Jews--being ob-
served as the Jewish Passover. The
Passover was observed for the de-
liverance of the Israeli'es from the
hands of Egypt.
His second Easter, is the Easter
we have just obsreved, the resur-
rection of Jesus Christ. Babbit said
we, as men, have little knowledge
of the immense strength of Chris-
tianity. "We have the only religion
in; the world that has a live object
of worship", said Babbit. "No other
religion has had the power to raise
one from the dead".
Ba.bbit said that the third Eas-
ter will be the .greatest one yet. 1i
will be the second coming .of Ji-
sus Christ and the resurrection of
the dead.
Gues's of the club were Bert
Toole and John Rouse of Panama
City and Carl Brinson of Columbus,
Georgia.

The Methodists of the Alabama-
West Florida Conference will ga- James E, Ivey Is
Either at Blue Lake ,on Thursday, Ap-

which they have -developed in this
lovely scenic ,area over ,the last ten
years. Highlights of 'the program
will be addresses by outstanding
leaders of The Methodist Church
,as well as leaders of ithe Annual
Conference. At noon a free .bar.be-
cue dinner will 'be served "Blue
Lake Style." After dinner oppor-
tunity will be given those attend-
ing ,'o tour Pinewood and Dogwood
Camp _sites, and also to see the
site of the new Lakeside Lodge to
be .erected under the sponsorship
of the Women,'s Society of Christian
Service, the Wesleyan Service
Guild, and 'the Board, of Lay Activi-
ties of ,the Alabama-West Florida
Conference.
Blue Lake Methodist Assembly
Grounds had its beginnings in the
.Conference in 1950. Prior to this a
committee had recominmende3. that
rhe Methodist of the Alabama-Wes&
Florida Conference area, secure
grounds for a camp program. A
committee was nominated in 1949
.and presented to the Annual Con-
ference 'of 1950 the location of the
camp in the Conecuh National For-
'est, 'south of Andalusia. The-report
wais adopted. From that 'time, pro-
igress land development came slowly
but very surely. In 1951 the older
youth of the Conference held a
work camp on ithe eastern shore
of the Lake. In years following,
this shore was developed into what
is now Pinewood Camp. In 1957-58
,the south 'shore of the Lake was
developed into Dogwood Camp.
The 'camp now is :able 'to care
or' two complete programs serving
more than 200 people at one time.
During this year almost 10,000 peo-
ple attended camps and agencies
'at the Conference Assembly
Grounds for purposes of instruction
and inspiration in the work of the
Church and Christian Fellowship.
Methodists are justifiably proud
of -their camp site 'at Blue Lake.
They are proud oa, its development
and of the possibilities of the fdu-
ture. Many children, youth and
adults have come ,to know God bet-
ter here on the shores of Blue
Lake and every year the program
grows and develops.
So with ,bahn.ksgiving, .Metho-
,dists will gather April 6 to .express
their appreciation for Blue Lake
and 'to review its growth and ,to
renew their dedication to the
Christ it serves and to its growth
in further serving of Him.

By HERVEY SHARPE
Fla. Ag. Extension Service
It's bewitching to discover that
lawn insects were no,t sleeping
beauties during -their winter nap.
The long term spell in late win-
i ter is causing the lawn varmints .to
cut their teeth earlier than usual
',this 'spring. So, don't ,be lulled into
a lazy .bug control ,program.
Delayed action will allow the
pests .to drain .the grain from out-
of-door carpets.
Chinch Bug
Keep an eye peeled for the worst
enemy-the chinch bug.
To glimpse this active little ras,-
cal, retirees will ,have to do more
than adjust their ,bi-focals, and ,the
younger set may have to 'squint
hard or even resort to 'a hand lens.
Full grown chinch bugs are
-black and only a fifth 'of an Inch
long. Their wings are folded over
their :back, with white areas show-
ing. The young bugs are wingless,
reddish with white back bands. It
,takes 20 'of these nymph's to mea-
-sure an inch.
This enemy usually attacks .first
along concrete walks and drives.
The insect sucks grass juice and
possibly injects a toxic substance,
-causing yellowish to ,brownish
patches in ;turf.
To check an ailing 'spot 'of grass
'for chinch bugs, cut -both ends out
of a large metal -can. Pust one end
*of the can about two inches into
the 'sod 'and fill with water. If any
bugs are present, they'll float to
the surface.
Controlling chinchh bugs is a
problem. But, Florida Agricultural
Experiment Station entomologists
'say 'that pesticides such as VC 13,
Trithion, Diazinon and ronnel will'
kill ibugs, if applied properly.
tAttack the .bugs iby first laying
down a water barrage. Then apply
the death-dealing chemical. A jar
attachment to a garden hose is a
fine way to spray on the pesticide.
Dosage varies with each chemical,
so ,be sure to follow the direction's
on the container label.
Sod Webworm
The sod webworm is a %-inch-
long greenish caterpillar that eats
.by night and sleeps 'by day. The
mother, a small dingy brown moth,
is the dastardly creature who be-
gins .the invasion by spraying the
lawn with eggs.
lt takes only a week. for the eggs,
to hatch into caterpillars that can
eat 'several times their weight in
grass per night. When just a few
'days old, the webworm shifts its
jaws into high gear and you'll
swear 'that the stripped ,patches of
grass happened over night.
To catch .the worms red-handed,
use -a flashlight at night. During
,the day, 'part the grass and look
for a greenish "worm" curled up
on the soil.
A jar attachment hose sprayer
loaded with toxaphene or DDT will

to millions overseas
The problem of where the simplest food is coming from dominates
the lives of thousands upon thousands of people overseas. One potato,
a loaf of bread, a bottle of milk-these basic foods we take for granted
would be a real luxury to them.
These people overseas are of all ages, races, colors. And with many
needs. They are victims of disaster-civil strife, displacement, earth-
quake, poverty-flood, famine, war. The problem of food is but one.
Clothing and shelter are others. So is the lack of equipment to build
lives anew.
How can you help these people? Give generous support to the over-
seas aid program of your religious faith. These programs provide
help in many ways-food, tools, clothing, homes, jobs, farm ma-
chinery, education and technical training.
You name it and America's religious-overseas organizations are
making it available. In fact, our country's church-sponsored pro-
grams provide more than 80 per cent of all voluntary American
overseas relief. When your religious faith makes its appeal this year
... remember why you are being asked to give... and give generously!

Mole-crickets, billbugs ,and white

which it does not do at least $15 in business.
That's how much is needed simply to break even
on the cost of operation. The survey also show-
ed that many drug stores are open many hours
-especially evenings and week ends-when pres-
cription business averages much less than $15 an
hour. Nevertheless, these stores stay open even

HOW BLOOD PRESSURE
IS READ
The sphygmomanometer is
the instrument for measuring
blood pressure in the arteries. It
consists of a rubber cuff which
is placed around the arm above
the elbow and inflated with air
by means of a rubber bulb at-
tached to the cuff by a tube.
The bulb is squeezed continu-
ously until pulsations are no
longer heard through a stetho-
scope placed over the artery in-
side the bend of the elbow. Then
the air is gradually let out of the
cuff until a pulsation is heard.
The point on the dial at this
moment indicates the systolic
blood pressure, which is the
pressure exerted when the heart
is contracting.
As more air is released, a
change occurs in the sound of
the pulsations, and that point on
the dial indicates the diastolic
pressure, or the pressure the
heart exerts between beats when
it is comparatively relaxed. The
difference between the two is
the pulse pressure, the extra
pressure exerted on the artery
walls on each pulsation.
There are charts to shoA
average normal blood pressun
at different ages. A report 01
normal blood pressure is usually]
considered by the patient ai
synonymous with good health
Blood pressure rises during ex
ercise, excitement or after smok
ing and drinking. Many person:
manifest high blood pressure
through anxiety as when the3
are being given a physical ex.
nomination for insurance, wort
or military service.
So-called normal blood pres.
sure can best be maintained
with such simple rules as propel
tiet, adequate rest,. sleep and
exercise and control of emo
lions. Continuously abnormal
blood pressure, however, indi-
cates a need for correction and
t physician should be consulted
Io find the cause.

THE GOOD ... AND BAD.. .NEWS

In connection with its April educational and fund-raising
Crusade, the American Cancer Society has announced that
there are one million Americans alive today who have been
cured of cancer. Twenty years ago, there were only 180,000.
But there is more to the story. The Society considers
"cured" only those alive and without evdience of the disease
five years following diagnosis and treatment. By this stan-
dard, it is estimated that an additional 600,000 cancer patients
diagnosed and treated within the last five years will live to
enter the ranks of those cured. This means that today there
are actually 1,600,000 men, women and children cured of
cancer, although 600,000 will not formally be counted until
five years from the time of treatment.
Twenty years ago, only one out of seven who developed
cancer was saved. Ten years ago, it was one out of four.
Today it is one out of three. It is estimated than 165,000
Americans will be saved from cancer this year.
This is good news indeed. But, unfortunately, there also
is bad news.
The dark side o'f the picture shows that 85,000 men, wo-
men, and children will die needlessly of cancer this year be-
cause their cancers will not be diagnosed in time and prompt-
ly treated. It is possible to save half of all those who devel-
op cancer through early diagnosis and proper treatment,
But the good news in cancer control is not the result of9
accident. It has come about through cancer research and
education. More and more men and women are having an-9
nual health checkups as the best possible protection against
cancer at the urging of the American Cancer Society.
Let us cut down on the bad news and increase the good
news by supporting the 1960 Crusade of the American Can-
cer Society. Gmiard your family-Fight Cancer With a Check-
up and a Check!
While any disease as fearful as cancer is considered
the disease that "happens to others" and never to us, this
attitude cannot be taken by the people of Gulf County at
all. And, Gulf County has no more cancer patients in pro-
portion than any other like area in the state.
Did you know that there are now 20 known active
cancer cases in Gulf County? Did you know that four of
these cases have been discovered just during the last week
or two? Did you know that 13 died in Gulf County last
year from cancer?
Were cancer regarded like influenza, pneumonia, po-
lio, or other like diseases, it would be said that Gulf County
is suffering from an epidemic of cancer. And, rightly so.
But so is the rest of the nation. Cancer is very much
with us in every part of the nation-on every street. r
The American Cancer Society is using your money
contributed to pay transportation to and from tumor clin-
los and, to pay room and board at clinics of seven Gulf Coun-
ty patients right now. The resources of these patients have
become exhausted, but the ACS is continuing their treat-
ment. A sympathetic look at the cancer situation in the
nation and a consequent sympathetic action committed by
making a donation is helping 20 people in Gulf County who
are in the clutches of this dread disease. A checkup secur-
ed by you is helping to keep your name from being added
to this number at a time when it will be too late to help you.
A periodic checkup will help you 'to refrain from being one
of the 13 people who died from this disease in Gulf County
last year-considerably more than were killed by automo-
bile accidents.

Mobile Therapy Program Now Available

For Gulf County's Crippled Children


Crippled .children 'and adults in
Gulf County are the benefactors of
a new service. The Gulf Coast Sto-
ciety ifor Crippled Children and
Adults, serving Bay 'and Gulf Coun-
ties, is making possible a mobile
therapy program for this county.
The mobile unit, 'operating from
the Easter eal Therapy Center in
Tallah-assee, is scheduled 'to be in
Port St. Joe the 'first Monday 'of
each 'month. Headquarters will be
the local Health Center.
The purpose of this unit is 'to pro-
vide physical therapy to 'handicap-
bed children and adults where lio-
cal facilities are not available, and
to instruct an d.train parents or rel-
atives who will be responsible for
follow-up procedures at home as
advised. by the referring physician.
Any *handicapped child' or adult
referred to the 'unit will receive
care and treatment regardless -of
cause of crippling, age, race, creed
or financial status. No fee is .char-
ged 'for children under 12 years of
age. Adult patients pay for -services
according ,to a fee schedule; this
may be 'adjusted in accordance
with the patient's ability to pay. In
no case i's treatment ,denied because
of inability to pay. Patients will be
accepted for -therapy 'only 'through
referral .of a. practicing physician.
:Robert L. West, Registered Phy-
sical Therapist, Director of the
Easter Seal Therapy Center in Tal-
lahassee, will administer the ther-
apy. Mr. West, 34, received hi's B.
S. degree from William and Mary
University, is a graduate of the
Medical College 'of Virginia with a
elinicat affiliationn 'at New York
State Rehabilitation, Hospital, and


'has done graduate 'work 'at New
York University in A. K. proste-
thics. While in military service, he
served with .the 31,st General Huos
pital in Luzon, Phillipine Island's
and on Manila.
Mr. West has served 'as Director
of the Easter Seal Center in Tal-
lahassee since August, 1959. In the
one and 'one half years there, 'the
case load has ,tripled and the mo-
bile unit has been developed.
The new program in Port St. Joe
was announced by Mrs. Wilma G.
Wyatt, R.N., North Florida .Consul-
tant, The Florida Society for Crip-
pled Children and Adults, Inc. She
said, "we are pleased to see this
Easter Seal 'service become avail-
able to the people of Gulf County,
and, look forward 'to expansion of
'the program."
