and the company.
It must be clearly understood, however, that, unless at
least $125,000 in combination stock ,and debentures are
sold to local residents of Gulf County, all money would be
refunded without further obligation on the part of the com-
pany. The reason for this is that the fiscal agents for the
company agreed to handle the entire issue for sale to institu-
tional buyers provided there are no outstanding bonds or de-
bentures against the system. Since it is the company's de-
sire to have local ownership of stock and debentures, the
first offer for common stock and debentures must be offered
to local citizens of Port St. Joe.
All local subscriptions must be in, together with a check
payable to St. Joe Natural Gas Co., Inc. in the full amount of
ihe subscription prior to April 30, 1962.
A complete engineering report from the firm of Bar-
nard and Burke, Inc., of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, of the sys-

; Fight for Highway 22 Gets Underway
The rumblings of the past two or three years of extend-
ing State Road 22 to the Perry Cut-off through Northwest
, Florida has finally came out into the open in a concentrated
effort of several counties to obtain the road.
- Where is State Road 22? It runs from Panama City to
Wewahitchka and from Wewahitchka across the Dead Lakes
y and dead ends at the Apalachicola River. The completion of
this road, according to its advocates, would give a shorter
y route to Tampa and other areas in South Florida from New
Orleans, Mobile and other points on the Gulf Coast, west of.
us. The question is. is the road needed and the point
is will areas such as Tallahassee, Quincy, Marianna and
other larger cities on Highway 90 allow it to go through-
since the road is being designed primarily to steal some of
Highway 90's traffic.
In attending a meeting of counties favoring the project
-or at least citizens in the counties affected by the road fa-
voring the project-in Wewahitchka last Thursday night, it
would seem that even the advocates are going to squabble
among themselves as to where the road will go.
Senator Luther Tucker of Crawfordville was in attend-
ance at the meeting and was very vociferous to the fact that
the road should go through the Apalachicola National Forest
and join the Perry Cut-off around Medart and Newport.
County Commission Chairman Frank Kirkland of Liber-
ty County was just as adamant that the road should go
through Sumatra and his County has gone so far as to pave
about nine miles of this route at a cost of over $300,000 with
Liberty's secondary road fund monies.
And at the same meeting, this editor was put out that
none of the Port St. Joe City Commission was invited to at-
tend. We thought they should have been since this is partly
a Gulf County project and every city and county commis-
sioner in every county affected was invited.
But back to the point of contention. A week or two ago
the Apalachicola Times came out in favor of Senator Tucker's
plan for routing the road. (This is probably the only time
the Times has ever agreed with Tucker. And about the only
time we have agreed with the Times is when they offered
their opinion of Tucker).
But, look at the location for a moment. According to
Tucker's route, the proposed road would go through the
Apalachicola National Forest. Whereby, Kirkland's route
will go through inhabited lands., There is no possibility of the
road building up the area on Tucker's route since the Apala-
chicola National Forest property is not for sale. A road has
two purposes and the two purposes are necessarily inter-
twined-providing a way for people to get places and serving
the area in which it is built. But there are no people in a
National Forest. $
But all this is conjecture a bridge must be built
across the Apalachicola River before a car can travel the
road after it is built and we are thinking this will hold up the
project for many years.
As to its affect on Port St. Joe-we don't believe there
will be any adverse effect, for this reason. Any glance at
the map of Florida will convince anyone that Highway 98 is
the long way to get anywhere. But Highway 98 follows the
coastline and tourists travel it for this reason-to see the
water. And, regardless of how many roads are built across
Northwest Florida to save miles, Highway 98 will still get
its tourists who travel to see the sights and not just to get
to a destination.

Facts You Should Know About Uterine Cancer:
Uterine cancer is the SECOND most common cancer in women.
Nearly all of the 14,000 deaths in the United States each year from
this disease could be prevented.
Since 1936 the death rate has dropped 50% in recent years.
It is nearly 100% curable IF found early and promptly treated.
A "Pap" smear which could save your life is your best insurance
against uterine cancer.
The "Pap" technique is a painless examination which provides the
pathologist with cast-off cells for study under the microscope for
possible cancer cells.
This life-saving program is spearheaded by the Eta Upsilon Chapter
of the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority and is sponsored by the Gulf County Unit
of the American Cancer Society. All adult women owe it to themselves
and those close to them to accept the responsibility of getting a check-up
and the "Pap" smear each year. You are ugred to join this Crusade to
"Conquer Uterine Cancer".

Most deciduous plants are as mo-
dest 'as humans. The first thing
they do when they awake in the
spring is to cover their limbs with
leaves. Dogwood, redbud, peaches
and plums and a few others are ex-
ceptions. They prefer to put on a
show of color before dressing.
Regardless of how plants begin
spring growth, you will find them
hungry 'after a long winter's sleep.
They will need food to carry them
through the first spring of growth.
