Three Hurt In

3-Car Collision

Gulf County and Port St. Joe kep,
up with the record of Northwest
Florida and South Alabama this
past week end by adding three au-
tomobile accidents to the rash of
smash-ups that prevailed through-
out this entire area.
Saturday afternoon at 4:45 p.m.
according to Trooper Ken Murphy,
Tony C. Brown of 1530 Cove Bou-
levard, Panama City, damaged a
house and two cars on Avenue C
in Port St. Joe. According to Troop-
er Murphy, Brown hit a 1960 se-
dan, driven by Johnnie May Har-
rell from behind. The Brown auto
carromed off to the left and hit a
1961 sedan parked beside the road
belonging to Colorado Bailey Hill.
The Hill auto was pushed into a
house occupied by Elizabeth Wil-
liams. When the dust cleared, Mur-
phy estimated damages at about
$600.00. Murphy said that Harrell
was charged with speed too great
for conditions and Brown was
charged with driving without a li-
cense.
At 6:00 p.m. Saturday, a Com-
Forter Funerial Home ambulance
on an emergency call and an auto
driven by Annette -Cheryl Lewis
sideswiped 'each other at the inter-
section of Monument Avenue and
7th Street. According to Murphy,
Miss Lewis had pulled Into Monu-
ment from her residence at 607
Monument into the inside lane. The
ambulance was coming up from be-
hind and sounded its siren. At 'the
some time the ambulance driver
started 'around the Lewis car in 'the
right lane. Miss Lewis, upon hear-
ing the siren started for the right
side of the road to park and as a
result the two vehicles side-swiped
each other.
Trooper Murphy 'estimated dam-
ages at 'about $200.00 and said no
charges were filed.


Sunday afternoon at 3:15 p.m.
three cars were involved in a chain
collision just North of the Highland
View draw bridge.
A long line of cars was parked
waiting for military personnel and
vehicles to cross the highway. An
auto driven by Mary Elizabeth
Whitehurst, 512 Third Street, Port
St. Joe came across the bridge and
was unable to stop. The Whitehurst
au'o crashed into an auto driven
by Lewis Columbus Gay of Wewa-
hitchka who in turned was shoved
into an auto driven by Elizabeth
Taylor Fraser of Carrabelle.
Total damages to all three 'autos
was estimated at about $800.00.
Mary Elizabeth Whitfield was
taken to 'the Municipal Hospital
suffering from internal injuries.
Ida Whitfield, 5-year-old passenger
in the Whitfield auto was treated
for bruises and abrasions and Mat-
tie L. Thomas, a passenger in the
Pay automobile was treated for a
cut on 'the back of the head.
Trooper Murphy said that Mary
Elizabeth Whitfield had been char-
ged with failing to have her vehicle
under control.

Saunders Tells About

Cross-State Canal

Harry H. Saunders, District Di-
rector of -the Florida Waterways
Association spoke to the Kiwanis
Club Tuesday on the proposed
Cross-State Barge Canal which will
run from Yankeetown to Jackson-
ville.
Saunders said the canal, as pro-
posed, would be a 12' by 150' fresh
water waterway that would provide
recreation, flood control, conserva-
tion of fresh water, abundant fish-
ing as well as economical transpor-
tion linking the Atlantic Coast,
Gulf Coast and inland waterways
system with an inland waterway
all the way to the Canadian border.
The Cross-State .Canal is the only
missing link in a protected water-
way traveling the entire Gulf and
Atlantic coasts. He 'pointed out the
need for such a sheltered water-
way in time of war by stating that
one fourth of tonnage sunk by ene-
my submarines in World War II
was sunk between New Orleans
and New York City.
He also pointed out that the U.
S. Industry would quickly starve if
it were not for the present water
transport system, giving for exam-
ple that all overland carriers com-
bined could provide only half of
the needed petroleum movement
needed by the Atlantic se-.boniri,
He also pointed to space vehicle
transportation needs and 'the grow-
ing need for cheap, dependable
transportation for growing indus-
try in the South.
He estimated that some 135 mil-
lion dollars will be spent on dig-
ging the canal and predicted that
work on the five year project would
begin this fall.
Guests of the club were Jerome
Barnes and Robbie Costin of St.
Joe High School; Joe Padgett, Pan-
ama City, Harper Harris of Mar-
ianna, John Inland, Panama City,
Ralph Swatts and Dick McIntosh
of Port St. Joe.

funds a year ago, but no decision has been made as yet.


Even though 'the money for the
survey is a grant, it must be repaid
when the City begins any part of
the construction for which the sur-
vey has been made.
Investigation toward obtaining
the federal money was began un-

extending the water service to ev-

Mental Health

Week Is Now

Being Observed

Mental Health Week is April 29
through May 5. Under the theme,
"Community Action for Mental
Health", your Health Department
wants to alert the community to.
the needs of the mentally ill.
Mental illness is no longer hope-
less. New treatment methods are
making it possible to ,save thou-
sands of mental patients. We need
more research to save, not thou-
sands, but hundreds of thousands
-not some, but all victims of men-
tal illness.
The number one health problem
is mental illness. There are more
patients in mental hospitals today
Than n all other hospitals combin-
ed. Mental illness is known to be
an important factor in many ,phy-
sical illnesses, such as cancer, tu-
berculosis, heart disease, and every
other killing and crippling disease.
At least 50% of all the millions of
medical and surgical cases treated
by private doctors and hospitals
have a mental illness complication.
Mental illness afflicts 18,000,000
Americans of all ages, including
young children. It knows no favor-
ites, affecting the ,poor and rich,
the laborer, businessman, executive
artist-folks that like in the coun-
try -and city. At least one person in
every ten has some form of mental
or emotional illness from mild to
severe that needs psychiatric treat-
ment.
Mental illness, just like other
dread diseases, can be brought un-
der control. Medical science, back-
ed by the public, has been able to
conquer one disease after another
-diphtheria, smallpox, typhoid,
cholera, polio, and others. In the
same way, medical science with
public backing can conqued mental
illness.

added laboratories, diagnostic x-

necessary for the patient's recov-

is added by hospitals to help save
lives and combat disease. This dra-

Register

TALLAHASSEE New registra-
tion figures released this week
show a total voter registration of
1,992,241, a record both for an off-
year Florida election or a primary
election of any year.
Both Republicans and Democrats
registered large increases, with
the Democrats maintaining a heavy
lead. But an upsurge in GOP reg-
istrations closed the gap -between
the parties somewhat, giving the
Republican's for the first time
nearly 20 per cent of the total reg-
- istration.
Total registration exceeds April
1960 figures by 228,813 and is just
24,345 under the -all-time record of
2,016,586 voters just prior 'to the
November, 1960 presidential elec-
tion.
The new figures fall short of the
goal of 500,000 new voters set ,by
state and -party officials. But the
books, which closed two weeks ago,
reppen ater th eMay primaries t'o
give eligible persons another
chance to sign up before -the No-
vember general 'election.
The new figures, compiled by 'the
Secretary of State's office, show
1,626,410 Democrats, 343,741 Repub-
licans and 22,090 Independents. In-
dependents cannot vote in the pri-
maries.
This represents an increase over
April, 1960 of 144,955 Democrats
and 77,749 Republicans. Democratic
registration .ell 29,613 under No-
vember ,1960, while Republicans in-
c.eased their registration 5,401 ov-
ei November, 19,60.

Voter Negligence Affects Everyone


Hospitals Give "Personal Touch"

As automation and technology progress, we frequently
feel that machines are taking over and man is fading into
the background. But there is still one place where we know
we will receive personal attention-the hospital.
Certainly science and technology play a large role in
today's hospital, with its cobalt bombs, x-ray machines,
electrocardiographs and antibiotics, but they are useless
without the doctors, nurses, technicians and other human
beings.
In fact, community hospitals have more than two em-
ployees for every single patient they admit, and 50 per cent
are directly concerned with the professional care of patients.
Scientific progress during the last century has produced
unparalleled medical care. Each medical advance has meant
better and better care, but this scientific treatment has not
-and cannot-replace the very necessary personal atten-
tion and care of human beings.
In some cases, the scientific advance has actually meant
that more persons are needed to provide the care-at least
more highly trained technicians.
Additionally, patients have specific needs that can be
met only by watchful human beings. Machines cannot re-
place the nurse who notes an alteration in a patient's color-
ing.
Thus the human factor remains a major o-
vision of hospital care. This we--

KENNETH WHITFIELD


In Riviera Beach last month, a Negro won a seat on the
City Council. This is unprecedented in Florida and perhaps
elsewhere in the South.
There are those who read into this election a bitter de-
feat for the incumbent, a white man, and others who see it
as a racial triumph for the victor.
We do not view it as either, but merely as the result of
the American apathy at the polls.
Of the 6,409 voters registered at Riviera Beach, only
2,913 voted. The Negro candidate received 1,477 votes and
the white incumbent, 1,436-a margin of 41 votes--but a
majority nevertheless.
Traditionally, white voters cast their ballots for white
candidates and it is logical to assume that if even half of the
white voters had voted, the Negro candidate would have been
defeated. Instead, less than one-third of the white voters
cast ballots. Over half of the Negroes voted.
Putting aside possible racial prejudices, one must con-
clude that this is typical of the way in which elections run in
the United States. Suppose the issue at stake had been re-
apportionment, a President, a governor, or even a local nom-
inee for office, the result would have been the same. If
less than one-third of one side of the issue and over half of
those on the opposing side turn out to vote, it is pretty clear
who is going to win.
In such an election, the majority loses and the minority
wins, which is contrary to the concept of free elections. The
only people to blame are those who failed to exercise their
privilege, right and duty-to vote.
With the May primary election only a few days away,
it would be well for every citizen to admonish himself to
go to the polls on election day. If he does not, a minority
voice may control his life and his community.
The people who stay at home lose the election for one
side or the other. The white voters ivho remained at home
in Riviera Beach lost the election for their candidate and
placed in office a Negro, who doubtless is a well qualified
man, but who could not be expected to win the office if the
majority of'wlwhite voters-had not remained away from the
polls.:. \
Riviera Beach is not held up as an example to embarrass
the people of that community-such practices occur right
here in Gulf County and Port St. Joe-but to point out the
fact that regardless of the issue at stake, Americans must
vote if they expect elections to represent the opinions of the
majority.
And then after we cast our vote, let's resolve to become
interested in what happens in our government. A good ex-
ample of this public apathy is the recent Supreme Court de-
cision to require the State of Tennessee to reapportion its
state districts. Even though we think the meddling of the
federal government into state government bailiwicks is not
right, it is also more than evident that the states brought
the need for federal intervention upon themselves. When a
states constitution definitely states that something shall be,
(such as the periodical reapportionment the State of Florida
proports to abide by) then let us be interested enough in the
affairs of our state, county and city to demand that the law
is carried out. Until we prove that we can govern ourselves
we haven't a leg to stand on when we object to the federal
government attempting to do so.

U. of F. Horticulturist Gives Tips On

How To Grow Beautiful Amaryllis


Flower Is Delicate, But
Worth The Trouble
By HERVEY SHARPE
Agricultural Ext. Service
The amaryllis is like some debu-
tantes-both must watch their diets
if they are to be beautiful'. .
However, the situation is more
acute with the bulbs than with e
maidqns, because too much food
will not even produce a "wallflow-
er".
So, if this spring's attempt at
-growing tall-stemmed garden beau-
ties produced greenery and, no
blossoms, it's *a good guess that
you had a heavy hand in the fer-
tilizer bag. Prolonged dryig 'of
bulbs, planting immature bulbs,
too much shade, and soil too rich
in nitrogen also cause flower fail-
ure. When planted in deep shade
amaryllis plants often die.
Amaryllis is one of a group of
plants that when grown in a soil

with high nitrate content, tends to
vegetate profusely, according o Dr.
T. J. Sheehan, ornamenal horticul-
turist with the Agricultural Experi-
ment Stations.
You can overcome the all leaves
and no flower situation by using
fertilizers low in nitrogen, or by
planting the bulbs in less fertile
soil and giving the plants a short
supply of water during the late
stages of growth.
How much and what kind of fer-
tilizer?
When establishing a new amaryl-
lis planting apply only a pound of
a 1:3:3 ratio (nitrogen, 'phospho-
rus, potassium) fertilizer per 100
square feet of bed space. Doling
out this meager amount of plant
food keeps rank growth to a mini-
mum.
Bulbs that are lowering now
will be ready for digging this fall.
At harvest time, rerpove the off-
isets Ifrom the parekilt bulb and
plant them. Under Florida climate
it 'will take about three years be-
fore the offsets reach flowering
size. But in the meantime the "-mo-
ther" bulb will furnish you with
color.
In. addition to offsets, you can
propogate amarfllis :by seed and
by cuttage.
If you want to propagate by cut-
tage, then make use of a -sharp
knife at digging time in late sum-
mer. Cut the mother bulbs into a
number of pieces-up to 60 if you
are an expert. Be sure each piece
has a portion of the stem tissue or
basal plate of the bulb attached to
the scales.
Next, dust the wedges with fer-
bam or thiram to :prevent diseases
and plant immediately in a -flat or
bed, containing a mixture of peat
and sand or other porous medium.
,If the weather is humid and
moist, small' bulbletss will form be-
tween the scales of the cut pieces
in about four weeks. These will be
ready for potting or planting after
ote growingg season and 'should
bloom in two or three years.
In seed propagation, harvest the
seed pods after they turn yellow
and 'begin 'to break open. Next, dry
the seeds for a few days and plant
them in a flat or a bed. Be sure the
soil is well drained, and shaded.
The amount of light should be in-
creased after the young plants
come up until they can stand -full
sunlight.
Indoor gardeners who-can't wait
-he rrree years for the seedlings
to reach the "debutante stage",
can purchase mature bulbs and
force them to bloom in about eight
weeks at any time of the year.


For this inside job, pot the bulb dane wettable powder in a gallon Airman Martin, who has com-


with one-half to two-thirds of the
oulb above the soil and maintain a
constant temperature. These two
factors-with a 'bit of luck-will
induce early flowering. -
Diseases are not serious iin ama-
ryllis production, but it is a sound
practice (o keep amn eye openii$fr a
fungus known as "red-blolbh" or
leaf scorch. Look for red spots on
leafes, stems and petals.
To prevent the disease, soak
bulbs in a 1:1,000 bichloride of
mercury solution before -planting.
If 'the fungus shows up on plants,
you may less-n the severity of the
attack by spraying with a neutral
copper spray at the rate of one
ounce in 2 -gallons of water.
Insects don't usually gnaw on
amaryllis. Occasionally the lubber
grasshopper -and the caterpillar
stage of the Spanish moth feed
on the plants. Control these insects
with -a spray of 3 tablespoons of
either 40 percent toxaphene wett-
able powder or 40 percent chlor-


of water.

The Port St. Joe Men's Bowling
Association held 'their first city
tournament last week end and the
tournament met with great suc-
cess. Among the -biggest thrills
came when the Phillip's 66, who
ended up with the lowest won-Toss
record in league play rolled their
highest series to sweep first place
honors. Grover Holland rolled his
first "500" 'to lead the gasmen to
victory. Grover rolled a 529 series,
and with handicap came up with a
679. Winton Ferrell and Lee Taylor
also had very good nights with han-
dicap series of 600 or better. Bob
Melton and Chuck Dial rolled fine
series 'for 'the 'team enabling them
to cop top honors with a 3075 team
series.
Even with the excitement the
teams made 'they all had 'to take
the back seat when Ray Medlin
took to 'the lanes. Ray rolled a
near perfect game getting a spare
his first frame and striking out
from there on. Ray hit his 290
game in the second game to go
with his 205 and 169 to add up a
whopping 664 series. His 290 is the
highest game rolled on the lanes
at St. Joe Bowling Lanes and his
664 is second only to Bob Joyce of
Vitro who rolled a 6S7 for Pat's
Wonder Bar.
Vitro's second team surprised
their powerful sister team by rol-
ling 3049 to gain second place hon-
ors in the team events. The captain
of the Vitro team, B. I. Mobley led
his team with his 557. Ted Grabow-
ski rolled 542 and little Gary Manz
packed a big gun to shoot 518. Bob
Shaw hit 4S6 and Randy McClain
rolled 466.
The mighty Costin team had to
really battle out for third place
with the number one Vitro team.
This match was a hang-up affair


for it was neck and neck down to
the wire. Costin's looked for a
while like it might make the top
rung of the team standings but the
Vitro team and the pressure of the
meet proved to be too much and
Costin's had to settle for third
place, and they were lucky to get
that high as Vitro was right behind
them. Costin's rolled 3016 to Vit-
ro's 2987. Jake Koller was high
man for Costin's with 538. Tommy
Pridgeon and Jimmy Costin 'bowled
matched 515's with Ashley Costin
rolling 513. Waring Murdock rolled
a low 476 to bring up the end.
Jim Atkinson led the Vitro team
with 582 including a 229 second
game. Jim still has to take a back
seat to Ray Medlin as he has done
so often in the past. Jim swept the
"runner-up" position in the individ-
ual awards in three categories be-
hind Ray. Gary Manz rolled another
fine 515 with Sarge Zelichowski's
509 next. Ron Pendergraft's 4S2
edged out Ted Grabowski's 452 to
help Vitro out.
Final team standings are as fol-
lows:
Phillip's 66, first; Vitro, no. 2,
second; Costin's, third; Vitro no.
1, fourth; Pridgeon's Agency, fifth;
Floyd Chevrolet, sixth; St. Joe Mo-
tor. seventh; Michigan Chemical,
eighth; SJPC Paper mill, ninth;
Pat's Wonder Bar, tenth; Pylant's

The Port St. Joe Men's Bowling


Association would like fo take this
opportunity to show its 'thanks to
the people of Port S. Joe. Many
thanks g to the sponsors 'who gave
the money enabling the teams to
join the leagues.
We hope to find more sponsors
next year so we can have more
leagues.
Also we would like to say special
thanks to Wesley Ramsey and his
staff at The Star for carrying our
"gossip" in his paper. It was a lot
of trouble and sometimes we were
-a little late turning our column in
and never were there less than 10
typing errors in our write-up Wes
had to figure out. Thanks to the
people of Radio Station WJOE,
Bob Sidwell and his staff who were
always happy to carry our report
on *their station. The news cover-
age on our bowling leagues and
tournament aided our cause greatly
and helped make our season a big
success. The Junior League was a
big success and 'the boys that roll-
ed in that league had -many a good
time thanks to the sponsors and
the Jaycees who paid -for the entry
fee of every bowler in the junior
league. Next year we hope to be
able -to see a lot more Joys and
girls with a bowling ball and a
good score to show off.
From the officers and myself, of
the Men's Bowling Association I
will again say "thank you very
much" or a very good first season.
C. E. "Jake" Koller, President
St. Joe Men's Bowling Assn.

Millions would Receive Social Security

Benefits Nc" By Just Filing A Claim


There are over a million people
age 65 or over in this country who
could receive some Social Security
benefits by filing a claim. Accord-
ing to John V. Carey, District Man-
ager of the Panama City Social Se-
curity Office, most of these people
are still working or running a busi-
ness. However, you do not have to
retire completely in order to draw
some of your Social Security bene-
fits.
As a result of the latest changes
in- the law, workers of retirement
age can receive benefits even
though their earnings are well
above $2,000 for the year. The law
now provides that $1 of the total
benefits payable to a family during
a year will be withheld for every
$2 the worker earns between $1200
and $1700. $1 in, benefits is lost for
each $1 earned in excess of $1700.
It may be possible for a worker
with dependents who are entitled
to Social Security benefits to earn
as much as $4,400 in a year and re-
ceive some benefits.
There is no disadvantage in fil-
ing your retirement claim for So-
cial Security benefits if you are
age 65 or over. You may be one of
the million people in the United
States who have last some of your
benefits because you have not filed
a Social Security claim. Now that
most individuals have filed their
income ta returns, every individ-
ual age 65 or over should 'file a
Social Security claim even though
he is 'still working. Even if no bene-
fits can be paid to you, your right
to a benefit in the future and the
amount of your benefit will be es-
tablished. This will 'eliminate the
possibility* of losing any benefits
that could be paid because you
might forget to file a claim on
time. Also, higher earnings after
you file your claim will be used if
these earnings would increase the
amount of your benefit.
Income that you have from work-


ing for anyone plus profit from
running your own business is all
that is considered under the re-
tirement test. The amount of mon-
ey you may have in the form of
savings, investments, company pen-
sions, and the like is not considered
earned income under Social Secur-
ity. Individuals age 72 do not have
to meet the retirement test.
Anyone expecting to file a retire-
ment claim under Social Security
should bring evidence of his 1961
earnings and an old record of his
age. Contact your nearest Social
Security office and resolve this
'matter in favor of filing a claim if

Jaycees Urge Citizens To Get Out

And Vote On Tuesday, May 8


This article conclude the Port St.
Joe Jaycees series on the duties of
elective officers in Gulf _County,
which you the voter will elect on
May 8.
We sincerely hope .that in some
way we have helped you become a
little more familiar with the duties
and responsibilities of the men in
our county and state government.
It is your responsibility now to
select the candidate most suitable
for these offices. May we remind
you again of some of the important
duties of these offices:
Our School Board member is re-
sponsible for the educational fa-
cilities of our county. It is his duty
to see that our children get the
best education possible. In carry-
ing out these responsibilities, our
County School Board will spend al-
cost $1,000,000 this year.


An important thing- to remember
about our County Commissioners-':i
that they levy the taxes paid by us
to the county and then allocate
these monies to the various agen-
cies and functions necessary for
the maintenance of our county. An-
other important aspect of their job
is the maintenance and building of
county roads and bridges.
Your State Representative rep-
resents you in our State Legisla-
ture. It is his responsibility to see
that all laws made are beneficial
to his county as well as the state.
These are, of course, generalities
and we hope that you have read
the more detailed articles which
have appeared in this .paper in the
past few weeks. The rest of the
elective story is up to you-the vo-
ter. It is now your responsibility
to place the most capable person


in office. THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Florida
In presenting these articles we


hope that we have -accomplished
two things. Firstly, that these of-
fices must be filled :by responsi-
-bfe and capable people and second-
ly,,that you the voter must exercise
your right to get out and vote on
May 8.
I-ii:




WAT.ADS


Dear Friends:
Here's a little suggestion that I
feel inclined to make: When you're
shopping won't you give yourself
temple time to do one of 'the most
important things in life? You're
spending your hard earned cash
and you owe it to yourself to take
time for careful thought and de-
liberation. Why hurry, anyhow?
(Someone 'has said the cemetery is
full of folks who hurried through
life!) Won't you take time 'to look
. :to ask questions, to examine
every item .thoroughly then ask
yourself the question: is it worth
the price? Will I be happy with this
purchase? We agree 'that many
customers -do this, while many oth-
ers do not give themselves time
to shop wisely and -spend their
money where it -will give the most
returns. The Tattler 'makes this
obsrevation with a sincere 'desire
to serve you better and save you
more. Unless we can make you
happy with your purchases we are
not worthy of your business. We
strive to be a helpful friend as well
as your hometown -merchant. For-
ty years in a -store has -brought us
many worthwhile lessons in:
association with our customers .
in 'merchandising experience and
knowledge. Some have been learn-
ed the hard, hard way many
have been pleasing, and satisfying
experiences.
Following a cook-out on the
beach with the family the attempt
to wax poetic -produced the follow-
ing lines:
When twilight and evening sha-
dows gently push aside the day,
It's pleasant to enjoy life in a
very special way,
It's time to broil a juicy -steak
on a charcoal grill,
In the balmy -open air, 'the smiling
'sky .above saying .to the soul


peace be still.
The tempting odor of cooking
steer wafts a welcome message
To the empty stomach craving
nourishment and cheer
Be still a .minute, give humble
thanks for life, food
And loved ones with whom you
share,
God -created all and put us there.
-RGB
Truly, May is a wondreful month
in Florida and this year The Tat-
tler will pass up a birthday later in
the month. We expect to be too
busy selling, serving and saving
with our friends. It's a good time
of the year, too, to recall the 'words
of a well known song: "Love Makes
the World Go Round" .. not just
puppy love, but the real McCoy .
in action; S'long RGB

Dodson Outlines

Improvements In

Progress At Bank

Florida National -Bank President
Walter, Dodson-gavie the program
to the Rotary Club last Thursday
at their regular meeting.
Dodson gave the Club a run-
down of some of the improvements
the bank is currently making to
provide better service for its cus-
tomers,
Dodson said that currently con
struction is underway to provide
a paved parking lot on the East
side of the bank.
The bank will 'soon begin 'the in-
stallation -of two drive-in banking
windows in the East wall' of their
building. The 'windows will elecri
cally operated and will automatical
ly adjust to the height of any auto
that pulls up to them for service.
Dodson said that 90% of the bank's
,traffic came by 'auto and the new
windows would add to the conven-
ience of these customers.
In' commenting on the make-up
of the bank, Dodson said that the
local bank was. one of a group of
31 Florida National Banks. The lo-
cal bank is operated the same as
the Florida Bank in Miami, Ocala
or any other city in the state. Dod-
son said their charges and activi-
ties were set up by the federal gov-
ernment and could not 'be deviated
from.
Dodson said that banks in the
State of Florida had already set
up a ,plan Tor action in case of
emergency in the State with cer-
tain banks designated to rush mon-
ey to an area .hit 'by disaster.
The Rotary Club will not meet
today at noon but will observe its
annual ladies night tonight at
7:00 p.m. at the Box R Ranch.
