was defined as one 'mile for an
'atomic 'explosion and eight and a
half miles for a hydrogen explosion.
One of the major dangers 'to
people was flash .burns. Experi-

'Direct Dial' Phone
Shown To Civitans
At the regular meeting ,of the
Civitan Club last Monday n eight,
William Schiebe, representative of
the Southern Bell Telephone Com-
pany of Panama City demonstrat-
ed the "direct dial" system for
placing long distance calls. The
"direct dial" system was first used
in Jacksonville in 1955, 'an, instal-
lation which cost $6 million.
The St. Joseph Telephone and
Telegraph Company co-operated
with 'Mr. 'Schiebe by securing a line
to Chipley, where the "direct dial"
communication center is located
and the Civitan ~fub placed calls
to various parts of the country such
as Fairbanks, Alaska, Greenwood,
S. C., Hawaii, Macon, Georgia and
Maplewood, N. J.
To use the "direct dial" system
first the code 'number is dialed fol-
lowed by 'the exchange and number
called. The call to Fairbanks, Alas-
ka took exactly 21 seconds after
dialing until 'the party in Alaska
This system Is unique in 'that if
the line 'to the station called is
busy the elecTtonic equipment au-
tomatically reroutes the call thru
an open circuit. Only station-to-
station calls may be made on this
system. Person-to-person calls will
still be 'handled by the operator.
Mr. Schiebe pointed out that as
there are 3700 different telephone
companies in ithe United States it
will Tbe some time before this sys-
'tem will be operational throughout
the country, however, -it is some-
'thing to 'look forward to.

Botrytis is a scourge of flowers.
The mum petals develop little
brown freckles and then the entire
petal begins to rot and then often
is enveloped in a grey mold. Use
zineb to control the disease.
Ray blight infected flower heads
have chocolate-covered petals and
a dark brown base on the florets.
Use the same treatment for ray
blight as suggested for ,septoria.
There are several insects that
attack chrysanthemums. However
the hardy plant isn't often damaged
to any great extent (by these vege-
tarians. Aphids may take a liking
to the tender mums. Often a herd
of friendly insects will devour a
colony of aphids. But if you fear
that nature is not on your side try
a malathion spray.
A near microscopic varmint that
can -suck the mum leaves dry is
the spider mite. Leaf injury shows'
up as mottled and off-color yellow.
Suggested control measures in-
clude malathion, aramite, kelthan'e
Thrips are warm weather insects
-that damage flowers. They are tiny,
slender pests about 1/32 inch long.
Malathion and dieldrin are recom-
mended for halting attacks of
Foliar nematodes may appear in
your mums. These pests destroy
the leaf tissue between the veins,
causing a browning of a wedge-or
pie-shaped section of the leaf. You
will find malathlon usually effec-
tive in halting these pests if you
apply the matreial before ithe in-
festation .becomes too severe.
In case you are a neophyte,
pinching is an improtaut practice
in mum 'production. The first pinch
is made when the plants are about
eight Inches tall, removing about
one-half of the stem and leaving
three sets of leaves. Later when
the lateral stems or "breaks" are
six or so inches long pinch them

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, JULY 13, 1961
LET'S COUNT NOSES
Two weeks ago this newspaper openly, in a front-page
editorial, opposed the County Commission re-districting plan
as passed by the Commission on Tuesday, June 27. The Star
labeled the plan, inequitable and not according to the re-
districting laws of Florida. The Star still maintains its ob-
jections to the plan as passed by the County Commission.

Commissioner Leo Kennedy told us that one must take
into consideration the amount of work in a Commissioners'
district. We say the Commissioner-to-be knows his area and
.its work load before he seeks the job. If he is going to shun
or complain about his work-load, he shouldn't qualify in the
first place. And, too, the Board of Commissioners is elected
to serve the entire county. One member's work load should
be every member's work load. Re-districting is done solely
to give every citizen in the county an equal voice on the Board
when there is an issue to be decided.
Personally, The Star feels that the division of popula-
tion as presented by the Jaycees was even too top-heavy to
provide anything like equal representation for the people of
Gulf County. As we have stated in this column before, the
only way we see for fair and equal division of the people of
the county into County Commission districts, three of those
districts are going to have to touch up to or into the City
Limits of Port St. Joe. Regardless of how distasteful this
may be to some people, the remainder of the people of the
county also have a right for their share of representation
each and every time the County Board is called into session.
