current failure was brought

Coach Brown has expectations
of his first team at Port St. Joe

biggest shake-up this year over
last year's team. Fullback Tommy

Brown plans to alternate Paul Rob-

Eric Hammond and Bill Vervaeke.
Hammond saw some action last
year and Vervaeke played most of
the year at halfback last year af-
ter being converted from a line-
man, Coach Brown said that Ver-
vaeke is a much-improved player
from last year.
Slated for starting duties on the
line will be Norton Kilbourn and
Herbert Smith with Paul Robbins
alternating at tackle; Rodney Her-
ring and Charles Zimmerman at
guard; Jimmy Gainnie at center
and Jimmy Goodman and Emory
Burison at end.
Coach Brown said that the
Sharks will meet some stiff oppo-
sition this year, the stiffest of
which, as usual, will be provided
by Milton, Marianna and Quincy.
A new team on the schedule this
year is Niceville, a new school of

Bids for Purchase
Of Water Pumps
The City Commission let bids
Tuesday night for the purchase of
two new pumps for the water treat-
ment plant to replace old worn
and insufficient pumps now serv-
ing the plant.
The bids let were for one 750
gallon per minute pump and one
400 gallon per minute pump. The
two pumps were purchased for the
price of $892.00 each.
The 400 gpm pump will be put
on an automatic basis at the plant

gpm operation. The 750 gpm pump
will be manually operated and
will serve in emergencies. Both new
pumps can be converted to 750
gpm capacity to meet any growing
needs of the city.
The two pumps are made by
Fairbanks-Morse and were purchas-
ed from Menge Pump and Machine
Co., of New Orleans, La.

Says City Sewer
Dr. Willa Dean Lowery, Gulf
County Health Doctor appeared be-
fore the City Commission Tuesday
night and told the Board of at
least six instances in Port St. Joe
where people had not tied onto
available sanitary sewer facilities
provided by the City.
Dr. Lowery said that the six
houses she was referring to were
on Robbins Avenue and North Park
Avenue in North Port St .Joe.
"These houses are now served
by septic tanks", said the Doctor,
"and the tanks are inadequate and
overflowing. Correction of this sit-
uation is needed as the situation
that exists is dangerous".
Doctor Lowery asked for the
cooperation of the City in requir-
ing these homes to connect to the
city sewer service which is avail-
able in these areas.
Law Requires Connection
Attorney Cecil G. Costin remind-
ed the Board that an ordinance
was passed by the Board when this
sewer was installed requiring
homes in the area to connect to
the sewer "within a reasonable
length of time."

the sewer had been installed and
Clerk J. B. Williams replied, "Five
The Board then entered into a
discussion as to the best way to
require the offending homes to

the Chief of Police H. W. Griffin,
be instructed to inform the homes
in questidri'to connect to tie sewer
within 60 days.

PANAMA CITY -- The Apalach-

Lewis K. Jeter, game biologist with
the Florida Game and Fresh Water
Hunts will continue to Novem-

from 12 noon Eastern Standard
Time until suncet each day. The
daily bag limit will be ten doves
"A special $3.00 season dove
hunting permit, valid from Octo-
ber 5 to November 3 only and is-
sued from the Game and Fish Com-
mission office in Panama City or
the countyjudge's office in Apa-
lachicola, will be required in addi-
tion to the regular hunting license'
The permit, also valid in Walton
County on the C. E. Mooney dove
field, Glendale, and the licensL
must be in the hunter's possession
as long as he participates in the
hunt. Taking of quail or wildlife
other than doves is prohibited on
t0ese fields. Dogs must be leash-

birds. Hunters must observe clo3-

parking lot. Intoxicated persons
will not be allowed to hunt.
Daily hunt information concern-

The plant is also called the may-
pop, since t h e fruit of the plant
when stepped on may burst with
a "pop". Small-fry baseball pit-
chers put the lopsided fruit to a
practical use. The y use them to

When the fruit matures and
turns yellow, the slimy coated
seeds inside the maypop are wor-
thy of tasting- if you like a sick-
ening sweet mass. The fruit is used
in flavering ice cream and confect-
ionery. Some say that maypops add
an exotic flavor to punches, mix-
ed drinks and juices.
As a medicinal plant, the pas-
sion plant is said to produce a sed-
ative effect. While under this in-
fluence you may like to consider
the legent attached to the plant.
The ten colored parts of the flo-
wer were believed to represent the
ten Apostles present at the Cruci-
fixion. Inside the flower is a showy
crown of colored filaments which

There are five states suggest-
ing the five wounds. The long ten-
drils represent the whip with
which Christ was scourged. The
finger-like leaves represent the
hands of the persecutors.
Passion flowers are propagat-
ed by seed or cuttings. A sandy
loam soil is recommended, but
the plant will thrive on organic
soil. The plant is easily bitten by
frost, therefore, grow the plant
in a protected spot.
There are dozens of annuals
and perennials that can be plant-

if you desire to schedule splashes

Unfortunately, many new gard-
eners think that they can get the
widest range of colors if they plant
packets of mixed seeds. Usually
there is a wide range of colors ini
these packets, but colors are often
inferior mhen the bargain mix-
tures are planted. For brightest
colors, stick to individual pack-
ages of separate colors and plant
only top quality seed.
To get a good stand of seeding,
protect them from the dreaded
damping-off disease, which is
quite prevalent during the warm
September and October -days.
There are several chemicals for
sale at your garden supply store
that will help keep down damping-
off. They include Semesan, Sper-
gon, Fermate and Karbam. Treat-
ing the seeds with one of these ma-
terials and sowing the seeds in
flats will insure that you will pro-
duce healthy seedlings.
