Company Progress Outlined
When the local mill whistle bel-
lowed forth with its 20-second:
blast at 7:00 a.m. Sunday, March
17, it marked 25 years of opera-
tions for the St. Joe Paper. Corn-
_.Those employees pictured adia-
celnt to ths article, who were on
thte scene at the start-up of the
mill on March 17, 1938, have play-
ed an important role in seeing the
mill grow to over three times its
original productive capacity., The
mill was originally designed to op-
erate at an annual capacity of
135,000 tons, but has since ex-
panded to a 400,000 ton output.
As the production of the mill has
Old Anchor Is
Found In Bay
M. C. Woods fishing boat, The
Three Sisters, came up with anoth-
er "find" from old St. Joseph days
The boat was dragging its nets
in the Bay off Oak Grove in the
vicinity of the old St. Joseph dock
and railroad wharf yesterday when
k"heir nets caught onto an ancient
anchor buried in about 16 feet of
Woods and his crew raised the
->old anchor, estimated to weigh
about 1,000 pounds, which had
about 15 feet of chain attached.
Jesse Stone, of the local Histori-
cal Society told The Star yesterday
that. his group will attempt to
"date" the anchor within the next
few weeks with the aid of Florida
State University archaeologists.

Thi -Company has enjoyed
growth ever since it was found-
ed. In building up a distribution
of liner and corrugating med-
ium to customers in virtually
every state east of the Rockies,
demand out-ran production for
St. Joe Liner. As a result, in
1952, tonnage was tripled when
a large expansion program was
carried out at Port St. Joe, rais-
ing the output of the mill from
400 tons daily to 1,200 tons.
Part of the program of expan-
sion involved the building of a wa-
terway system designed to tap the
waters of the Chipola River 18.51
miles away so 50 million gallons
of fresh water daily might be avail-
able for production purposes. The
mill now uses 32 million gallons
daily. The City of Port St. Joe has
access to this water supply and
utilizes somewhat less than 1 mil-
lion gallons of water daily.
Woodlands Division Is
Approximately 65 St. Joe Wood-
lands Division employees are in-
volved in forestry activities rang-
ing from the planting of seedlings
to forestry maintenance to the ac-
tual selection and cutting of trees
on the more than one million acres
of timberlands owned by the Com-
pany. In order to efficiently man-
age these tremendous holdings,
the woodlands have been set up in
seven management areas, or units.
Each unit has from 50,000 to 200,-
000 acres and has a forester who
is in charge of the staff at the unit.
These woodlands are the most ex-
tensive owned by any paper com-
pany with one mill. Units are lo-
cated at Albany, Georgia and at

Box Plant Organization
Box manufacturing f a c ilities
were initially set up in Port St.
Joe in 1943 with two corrugating
operations. This was followed in
1947 by the establishment of a
small sheet plant in Houston, Tex-
as, later converted to a corrugator-
equipped operation. In 1948, a con-
tainer plant in South Hackensack,
New Jersey was acquired. In 1950,
the Port St. Joe facilities were ex-
panded into a complete container
The Fort Wayne group of box
plants was added in 1959, compos-
ed of plants in Hartford City, In-
diana; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
and Rochester, New York. Plants
have since been built or acquired
in Birmingham, Alabama; Mem-
phis, Tennessee; Cincinnati, Ohio;
Baltimore, Maryland; Portsmouth,
Virginia and Mesquite, Texas.
Container .Division expansion
continues as extensive plant facili-
ties are being readied in Chicago
with full scale operations schedul-
ed to get underway in August of
this year. Two other container
plants planned for the near future
will be located in Atlanta and New
Orleans, where plant sites have al-
ready been acquired.
The established plants presently
take a lion's share of the local
mill's production, and their strate-
gic locations make St. Joe Paper
Company a truly national organi-
In addition to the employees
who were in the employ of the
Company on March 17, 1938, the
following will record 25 years of
continuous service during this
year: E. L. Antley, J. E. Beasley,
J. C. Bolin, Paul J. Blount, Clyde

Wynn, E. B. Young, Joe C. Givens
and Sammie Manning.
Other than the employees at the
mill in Port St. Joe, there are three
whose association with the Com-
pany also covers the span of 25
years of mill operations. Without
the excellent leadership and out-
standing contributions of Mrs. Al-
fred I. duPont, Edward .Ball and
Mrs. Irene Walsh, the progress and
records attained by the Company
during the past 25 years would
not have been possible.

Letter Campaign To
State Officials Urged
William Kidd, Administrative
Assistant to the Governor, and
Chairman of the Governor's Com-
mittee on the Governor's Outdoor
Recreational Program has asked
Jesse V. Stone of Port St. Joe to
head up a letter-writing campaign
in this area.
The letter writing campaign is
in endorsement of the Governor's
outdoor recreation program. This
program is a tentative bond issue
which will also include monies for
the development of St. Joseph Spit
State Park, as well as several oth-
er projects throughout the state.
Should the Governor's plan fail
to get legislative backing, it could
delay start on the Port St. Joe park
by nearly two years, because of
lack of appropriated funds.
Write today, in your own words,
letting the following Legislators
know that you are in favor of the
Governor's Outdoor Recreational
Program and that you want each of
them to support this program dur-
ing the coming legislative session.
Rep. Ben C. Williams, House of
Rep. Mallory Horne, Speaker of
the House, Tallahassee.
Sen. Luther Tucker, The Senate,
Sen. Wilson Caraway, President
of the Senate, Tallahassee.
Write your letters, place them in
envelopes, seal, address and stamp,
but do not mail. Leave your letters
at Campbell's Drug Store, Florida
National Bank, The Star or Station
WJOE, for simultaneous mailing.
The City Commission discussed
a change-over of the city employees
hospitalization plan Tuesday night
in a very short meeting.
At present the City employees
hospitalization insurance faces a
rate increase next month, and ef
forts are being made to give the
employees comparable or better
insurance for less money.
The Commission heard a propo-
sal by Gulf Life Insurance Com-
pany Tuesday, which the Commis-
sion is taking under consideration.
Mayor Hannon called it to the
attention of the Board that people
were parking on the grass on Fifth
Street between the two road lanes
The Commission urged Chief of Po-
lice H. W. Griffin to try and elimi-
nate this practice.
The City has been requested by
Colored citizens of Port St. Joe to
construct a Little League baseball
field in that section of town. This
matter has been taken into consid-
eration by the Board, which is pres-
ently awaiting the preference of a
location for the field before any
further work is done.
The Board adjourned at 8:45.
Spends Few Days Here
Mr. and Mrs. Donald Adams of
Hampton, Va., spent several days
here this week with Mr. Adams
mother, Mrs. Z. B. Adams and Mrs.
Adams Aunt, Mrs. Mae Thursday.
From here, they will visit relatives
in Panama City and Pensacola.
dare Land Surplus
made the news public this
released land on St. Joseph
Florida for construction of a
.e release of the land by the
ts to the General Services Ad-
cially release the land to the
us. Below is Sikes announce-
"I am happy to announce that
the Department of the Air Force
has declared the land on St. Jos-
eph Peninsula that is desired for a
state park "surplus to Air Force
needs." On March 4 this declara-
tion of surplus was sent to other
government agencies. Under the
law they have the option of obtain-
ing this land for their own use by
applying for it before March 24. It
seems unlikely that another agen-
cy will ask for the land, however,
and I am doing all I can to make
sure that it will soon be eligible
for transfer to the Florida Board
of Parks. On March 24, the declara-
tion of surplus will be sent to the
Secretary of Defense for his appro
val and thence to the Congress for
Committee approval. I am follow-
ing the project closely, at each step
urging action favorable to the es-
tablishment of the state park.
"A further development on the
St. Joseph Peninsula state park was
the recent announcement by the
Coast Guard that permisison has
been granted to build an access
road across its holdings on Cape
San Blas, approximately halfway up
the Peninsula. With all this pro-
gress made, it is entirely possible
that developmental work on the
St. Joseph Peninsula state park
can begin in late spring.
This project is being pushed in
Washington by the entire Florida
delegation. It is also receiving the
sympathetic backing of Harold F.
Sparks, Colonel, USAF, Deputy Di-
rector, Legislative Liaison.
In the state, Governor Farris
Bryant has kept in close personal
contact with the Florida delegation
and personally urged action on the
matter from all of the Washington
officials from Florida.

A layette is essential prior to a

a duster and an array of chemicals.
Instructions on how to mix each
formula is important. Be sure to
read the label on each chemical
container before using.
If the amount of the chemical
you can place on a dime is enough
for a pint of spray, don't measure
the amount on two nickels. Double
dosage may be harmful to you as
well as the plants.
Several pests, may plague your
garden at this time, according to
J. E. Brogdon, entomologist with
the Agricultural Extension Service.
For example, certain night-
feeding beetles eat holes in tightly
wrapped clusters of bud leaves of
camellias. When these leaves ex-
pand they reveal large holes in the
foliage. You can prevent this dam-
age with chlordane or DDT.
Spider mites will thrive during
dry spells ahead. They rasp away
the upper surface of many orna-
mentals and change the healthy
green color to a bronzed or grayish
green. One of the several miticides,
such as tedion, will halt the inva-
sion of mites.
Aphids are certain to be a prob-
lem where plants are young and
succulent. These little pests feed
on the underside of leaves, caus-
ing them to curl and sometimes
drop. Often a brood of aphids will
be sucked to death by blind fly
thion, lindane or rotenone.
Ants often protect herds of
aphids so that they can enjoy the
sweet excreta of the aphids. So
killing ants may help control the
To control ants in the garden try

not apply chlordane to foliage or
fruit that is to be eaten, unless the
poison will be removed at harvest
time by stripping or by peeling.
You can control ants in lawns
with an application of 2 table-
spoons of 50 percent chlordane per
gallon of water. Pour the mivture
into the nest opening and on the
area around the nest. Then soak
the area with water to wash the
insecticide through the ground
and into the nest.
A real lawn pest is the sod web-
worm. These greenish night-feed-
ing caterpillars are about % of
an inch long. They can eat more
than their weight in grass each
night, yet look quite harmless
when found sleeping near the soil

An extensive investigation shows that on February 28, 1963, HIGH FOOD PRICES weremurdered at Wood's Discount Foodliner in Port St. Joe, Florida.
Edward J. Woods, after being accused of murdering High Food Prices, is out on bond, but he is confined most of the time to Port St. Joe's Discount Foodliner on Highway 98.
Evidense shows there may be several accomplices, the investigation is continuing.
Edward J. Woods claims he is not guilty, because he is saving the people of the Port St. Joe area Hard Cold Cash. 'Ed claims that if the people check and compare his everyday low

"Sharks" Painted On Floor White City Girl
Of High School Gym Struck By Auto
The Port St. Joe High School
gym has a colorful new addition-
a pair of sharks painted in the mid-
court circle. Painted purple and
white, as well as being ten feet
long, these sharks should'be a tre-
mendous boost to school spirit.
The project has been carried out
by the Student Council in that or-
ganization's present, policy of
school improvements. However, all
recognition must go to Clyde A.
Fite and Bill Holten, who gave un-
sparingly of their time so that
these sharks could be painted. Both
men are artists as may be seen
when viewing their handiwork.
We of both the Student Council
and the student body would like to
give our most sincere thanks for
this service to the school.
