Country Club Plans Moving Ahead
Although the San Blas Country
Club was organized only five
months ago, much progress has
,been made towards. opening the
Any endeavor must have a strong
membership, and the club now
boasts 92 members. The original
issuance of 100 shares of stock has
nearly been sold. The remaining
shares are offered subject to the
applicants approval by the Clu'b's
Board of Directors.
Tangible evidence of progress
can ,be 'seen at the Club 'site, and
all members and other interested
parties are invited to witness the
tremendous undertaking. Presently,-
an .excellent access road has 'been
constructed and the grounds are
easily gotten to. Zeb Hackett, the
grounds keeper, lives in temporary
housing owned by the club, at the
site, and will guide you over the
premises. Approximately half of the
fairways have been cleared, and
(bul dozers are now steadily work-
ing to complete this phase. Follow -
ing, root rakes and graders will
complete the "smoothing out" job
and planting will begin when the
proper contour and fertilization are
completed. The club is purchasing
a vital piece ,of equipment, a trac-
tor, to assist in the lesser clearing
and grading work. Naturally, this
will be the power unit for gang
mowers and other necessary main-
tenance equipment following for-
mal opening of the club. A deep wa-

purchased, and water will be avail-

City To Receive
The City Commission took sever-
al minor items under consideration
at their regular 'meeting Tuesday
One of the items will not prove
quite so "minor" in cost. This item
was the project of painting the
Centennial Building inside and out.
This building has not been p.lainted
for the last 1.0 years and is badly
in need of. this maintenance.
Discussion of thiS .matter has
'been held at past meetings with no
concrete action being .taken. The
Board agreed to get; *approximate
prices, specifications and other in-
formation on pressure painting of
the building, which will last for a
number of years. Mayor Sliarit told
the Board that he had obtained an
estimate last fall of some' $3500 to
paint the .building 'in this manner.
New light bulbs for the baseball
park were requested,.of the Board.
The park needs approximately 35
bulbs to replace those? burned out.
The City Clerk was .-requested to
ascertain the cost of .these :bulbs
and determine how many were

"As chairman of Local. 379 Unit-
ed Papermaker and Pa perworkers
AFL-CIO, I have been asked by the
press to make a statement concern-
ing our recent strike ballot which
was held Friday, April 14.
"The reason for this ballot was
made necessary 'because the Union
and the Company could not come
to a settlement on three grievances,
one of these grievances was call
time and the, other two working
"A final count of ballots showed
119 in favor of the strike and 63
opposed. Our International Consti-
tution specifies a two-thirds major-
ity by secret .ballot, this was only
four votes short of the two-thirds
majority needed. Had we received
a strike vote -the officers and com-
mittee would have done everything
possible to have reached an honor-
able settlement -before putting pick-
et lines around the plant.
"Many -times labor organizations
receive -bad publicity 'by the press
and the public because we do not
deem it necessary to defend what
we feel is right.
"The officers and grievance com-

of last Friday will become neces-

Doltarspots Are Sign Of
Trouble In Spring Grass
By HERVEY SHARPE
Fla. Ag. Extension, Serv.
"Dollarspots on lawns are not
signs of wealth. They usually mean
that a fungus is reducing the value
of the lawn to that of a plugged
Keep a wary eye out for this
springtime disease. It ravages all
!awn grasses, but is partial to ber-
muda and zoysia.
As implied, the fungus kills grass
in patches the size of a silver dol-'
lar. At first the spots of turf wilt
and perhaps tufn dark before
,bleaching out to a straw blonde.
Aside from measuring the spots
for size with a souvenir dollar,
check for dollarspot just after sun-
rise. With the aid of the low angle
glint of old iSol, you'll discover a
white cabweb-like mold .binding to-
gether blades of grass. The mold
disappears when the dew dries.
To cure a mild case of dollar-
spot, give the grass a generous shot
of nitrate of soda. But ,be sure of
the ailment, because nitrogen -adds
to the misery of some diseases.
For safer control, University of
Florid turf men say use a lawn fun-
gicide containing .cadmium. Apply
the material as a spray, using only
a half -ounce per 1,000 square feet
of lawn. A jar attachment on a gar-
den hose is an ideal way to drench
the disease from the lawn.
Now is a good season to initiate
an air-layering project. This ancient
Ohinese method of propagation is
fine for shrubs and trees that are
lazy in taking root. Carissa, lychee
or guava are examples.
The operation Is simple. Remove
a 1half-inch ring of bark near the
ibawe of a twig, tie a handful of
damp sphagnum moss around the
ringed area, then wrap the moss-
covered. section with a ,piece of
plastic. Aluminum foil and freezer
wrapping can also be used.
Garden supply *stores sell com-
plete air layering kits for serious-
minded amateur propagators.
