Upon a motion by City Commis-
sibnir-Teom-Coldewey-and a second
by Commissioner John Robert
Smith and carried by a vote of
four ,to one, the City Commission
instructed and directed City At-
torney Cecil G. Costin, Jr., to en-
ter suit to recover damages result-
ing from troubles with a roof on
the expanded Municipal Hospital.
Commissioner Barrier voted "no"
to the suit, with Commissioners
Coldewey, Smith, Nedley and Ma-
yor Hannon voting in favor of the
The suit action will be against
E. F. Gunn Construction Company,
Architect Norman, P. Gross and
their respective bonding companies
in connection with the roof.
Troubles with the roof have oc-
cupied the attention of the Com-
mission for the past several months
when it was brought to their at-
tention that the roof has leaked for
three of the four years it has been
on the hospital. The roof is a 20-
year bonded roof.
The City has engineers to inspect
the faulty roof and have been ad-
vised that the roof is leaking due
to a breaking up because expansion
joints were not placed in the roof.
The report from the engineers said
that one "sliding expansion joint"
was in place in the roof, but was
not sufficient to take care of the
large expanse on the hospital.
An attempt was made to include
the roofing company for the hos-
pital job in the suit, the Thermal
Roofing Company, but the company
apparently is no longer in exis-
Estimates to place the hospital
roof in good condition once again
have ranged all the way from
$6,000 to $12,000, according to
what extent the City wished to
take in the work.

CITY ASKS FOR 4-LANING OF 71
TO EASTERN CORPORATE LIMITS
Graham, representing the Board
met with the City Commission or
Tuesday night to request the cc
operation of the City in several
projects the county wished to se

Graham asked the City to sup
port, by Resolution, an attempt b:
the County to secure primary roach
funds for the four-laning of High
way 71 to the Port St. Joe cit'
limits. At present this highway i
four-laned up to Marvin Avenue.
Graham said that it was thE
county's thinking to get the street
four-laned in front of the new
court house site in Port St. Joe.
The City Board told Graham ol
plans to extend the City Limits ir
an Easterly direction by one mile
They then passed unanimously
Resolution introduced by Commis
sioner Coldewey and seconded by
Commissioner Barrier to request
four-laning of the highway just be
yond the curve in the vicinity of
the Apalachicola Northern Rail-
road main line track.
Paving of Fourth Street
Graham said that it was his wish
to introduce the extension of
Fourth Street from Woodward to
Garrison Avpnue to the County
Board to include in paving plans.
He pointed out that there was, pre-
sently no water or sewer services
on this route, and asked the City to
consider putting in these facilities
before the street is paved. Mayor
Hannon instructed water superin-
tendent G. L. Scott to make a cost
survey of this project.
Commissioner Graham pointed
out a need which the Commission
has been studying for the past

We enjoy having relatives and friends bome and visit us.
SHolidays, and the resultant day off give us a delight, whether

But despite all this "enjoyment" and having so much fun visit-
ing, spending a day at home, etc., we are glad that Labor Day has
sounded the knell of quits for such activities for a while.
Labor Day has been aptly named, since it is the signal to quit
the Summer vacationing, playing, visiting, relaxing and get back
to work and the sensible routine.
And also so that you can begin earning the money to do
your Christmas shopping.
The slight nip in the air these mornings tell us that Summer
is on the way out. We hate to see anyone being "pushed out", but we
are glad to see Summer go. And if Summer goes, can winter be
far behind? We hope not.
And for those who are hard to convince that the season is fix-

In this area, drainage pipes

tracks at a level higher than the
property to be drained. The results
are areas of standing stagnant wa-

Graham said the County wished
to do something about this area
through the Mosquito Control pro-
gram and asked the City's coopera-
tion in the porgram to the extent
of furnishing a survey and eleva-
tions of the area.
Commissioner Nedley made a
motion, seconded by Barrier that
the City make and furnish the
County with this survey.
Commissioner Graham also ask-
ed for the City's assistance in ex-
tending Avenue A, Eastward to
join up with Highway 71. Graham
wanted a joint effort in construct-

School Board Asks That Suits Be Dismissed
Request for Dismissal
Turned Down By Judge
S At a hearing in the Courthouse in Wewahitchka on Labor
Day, Circuit Judge Robert L. McCrary denied the motion by
School Board attorney, Cecil G. Costin, Jr., to dismiss the suit
t by the County Commission against the School Board. The
suit seeks to have declared unconstitutional two bills, passed
f by the 1965 Legislature, that give essentially all of Gulf
County's race track funds to the Board of Public Instruction
for school construction.
The county commissioners base
their suit on these points: agreed that they would consolidate

Same Duck Season
And Bag Limit
As Last Year
Tallahassee Duck hunters will
have about the same season and
/bag limit as last year, according to
a regulation framework for water-
fowl and coot just received from
the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
0. E. Frye, director, Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission, said
"The framework will allow Florida
to establish a season of forty days
with a four duck bag limit or a fifty
day season with a three duck bag
limit. Florida's sportsmen have in-
dicated that they prefer the forty
days and four ducks in preference
of the longer season and reduced
The waterfowl hunting season
must be, established between an
opening date of October 9 and a
closing date of January 9, 1966-
one week later than was allowed
last year. This presents a problem
in that the selection of the latest
possible season will not permit the
season to be open during the
.Thanksgiving holidays unless a
split season is chosen. Federal
regulations require a penalty of
four days off the total season for
those states selecting a split sea-
son. In the past the Commission has
selected the latest season possible
as provided in the regulation
The daily bag limit on ducks
other than mergansers is-four per
day. The limit on .coot is ten per
day and hunters will be allowed a
daily bag limit of two geese. The
daily bag limit on ducks may not
include more than two wood ducks,
two mallards, or two canvasbacks.
The sheeting hours for taking
waterfowl and coots in the Atlantic
Flyway are from sunrise until sun-
Opening and closing dates and
final waterfowl hunting regulations

concerns caring for shade trees.
Fertilization is of great import-
ance in the care of shade trees. I
do not know of any tree on resi-
dential property that will not bene-
fit from an annual application of
fertilizer applied properly and in
reasonable quantities. But, the av-

in ms yara. in view u me llcreab-
ed value afforded the average
home-site by the presence of shade
trees, the homeowner is certainly
justified in making the relatively
small expenditure of time and
money required fo ran adequate an-
nual feeding for his trees. Healthy,
vigorous trees not only grow better,
are more beautiful, and produce
better shade, but the yare much
better equipped to resist the at-
tacks of insects and disease. A
large per cent of the trees I have
been called to look at for insects
or disease were either in very poor
condition before the attack or in-
Since it would not be economical,
woodland trees are not fertilized. If
they were, they would not require
as much fertilization because the
leaves fall to the ground and re-
turn their organic matter to the
soil. The leaves from lawn trees
are, generally removed. Also, lawn
trees must compete with a heavy
grass sod that drinks up all the
available water and nutrients be-
'fore the trees get a chance at it.
SLate fall or early spring applica-
tions of fertilizer are preferred for
trees. Fall feedings should be made
afte rthe lays have fallen from
hardwoods or until there is no pos-
esibility of growthin evergreens.
Spring applications can be made
any time before May 1. Feedings
after this time do not produce the
maximum response in root and top
growth. Summer fertilizing should
be L.vol:d, since the growth pro-
duied isl usually soft and succulent
and does not harden properly, thus
making it subject to winter injury.
However, if a tree is obviously
.starving, it should be fed regard-
less of the season.
While most shade trees will re-
spind to yearly treatments, some
individual trees may require feed-
ing every two, three, or four years.

Widows May Claim
Benefits Before 62
Widows may claim Social Secur-
ity benefits on a reduced basis at
age 60, according to John V. Carey,
District Manager of the Panama
City Social Security Office. The
benefit amount will be reduced 5/9
of 1 percent for each month that
the widow is under the age of 62.
Widows are the only ones who
may claim retirement age benefits
while under the age of 62, Carey
continued. Of course, disability
benefits may be. payable to a dis-
abled worker and his dependents
regardless of age if the individual
has a disability which prevents him
from doing any kind of gainful
Divorced women may'have rights
on their former husband whether
he is living or dead if they were
married for 20 continuous years be-
fore the divorce, Carey added. Of
course, the former wife divorced
must be 62 years of age if her for-
mer husband is still living, where-
as the former wife divorced may
be paid benefits at age 60 if her
former husband, is deceased.
Widows who remarry after age
60 may now have Social Security
rights on a deceased husband's So-
cial Security record, Carey said.
Remarriage after the age of 60 does
not destroy a widow's Social Secur-
ity rights on her previous husband.
A woman who draws Social Se-
curity benefits on her husband's
Social Security record must always
notify the Social Security Adminis-
tration if a divorce occurs or if she
remarries, regardless of her age at
time of remarriage, Carey conclud-
ed. Although Social Security bene-
fits may be continued in many cases
because of the Social Security
amendments of 1965, we must be
put on notice of the divorce or the.
remarriage so that benefits, if pay-
able, will be paid on the proper rec-
If any of the above changes af-
fect you and you are old enough to
qualify, for benefits, you should

ity office to file your claim. If

FFS Says Now's Time
To Plant Pine Seedlings
Carl F. Muller
Bay and Gulf Farm Forester
Pine seedlings must be ordered
now for planting this winter, as
you probably know, seedlings must
be planted while they are dormant
in the winter months. The cost of
seedlings is only $4.00 per thous-
and for the timber species. This is
less than % cent per tree.
Last year, Bay and Gulf counties
planted over 11,500,000 seedlings.
This is by far more than any other
two counties in the state. It is es-
timated that 100 million seedlings
will be planted in Florida this win-
ter. This is enough seedlings to
plant around 130 thousand acres of
land. In comparison, only 5,000
were planted in 1928 when Flor-
ida's reforestation program was be-
gun. Since -1928 ,one and one-half

Farm Forester -
Longleaf Pine once occupied this
area here in Bay and Gulf counties
as extensive virgin forest of very
high value. Possibly some, of you
can remember the vast acreages of
the large pines. Today, Longleaf is
found only in smaller second
growth forests as it lost possession
of much land when it failed to re-
There are several reasons why
Longleaf failed to perpetuate it-
self. When the early loggers came
through, they left very few trees
to reseed area. The few trees they
did leave were either too small or,
of too poor a form to be a good
supply of seed. Added to this prob-
lem was fire. Fire is a very valu-
able tool in Longleaf Pine manage-
ment, but it must be used correctly.
At this time, the fires came through
almost every year, and a one year
old Longleaf seedling is very easily
killed by fire. In the later years,
when a good fire control system
was developed ,a lack of fire be-
came a problem. It was not realiz-
ed at that time, but control burn-
ing is a must to enable Longleaf
reproduction to overcome the com-
petition of other species, as well
as underbrush. Since Longleaf is

What we would like to suggest is that the School Board
-use a part of the first year income from race track money to
raise teacher salaries substantially. We would also like to
suggest that the Board subsidize such a raise in future years
:from the added revenue that the Board will receive from a
xe-valuation of real and personal property during the next F.
tax year. The source of money for such a raise is in sight.
The need for such an increase is starkly evident. Let's do
something about it.
YOUNG HOODLUMS GAG FBI'S HOOVER
Reprinted from the FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin
Young thugs and teenage criminals may be pressing
their luck by increasing their violent escapades while blam-
ing society for their faults.
It appears that the public is beginning to gag on the
steady sociological diet of excusing the conduct of teenage
hoodlums because "society has failed them." Resort commun-
ities racked by senseless riots and citizens who cannot ven-
ture from their homes without being assaulted and beaten are
getting fed up with pampered and insolent youth gangs.
Some courts in the troubled areas are taking a more
realistic approach in handling those involved in these out-
breaks. New laws providing stiffer penalties are being en-
acted in a few places. We can only hope that authorities
everywhere will follow this trend. Certainly, the more desire
of young miscreants to have a "blast" or to "let off steam"
is no excuse to ravage a community and to maim and ter-
Srorize its residents.
That holiday riots and similar antics by carousing youths
have evoked widespread concern is not surprising. It is sur-
prising, however, that strong public reaction did not come
sooner. For several years, the increasing volume of criminal
acts by young people-spurred on by the lenient treatment
received-has presented a clear barometric reading of what
we are now witnessing. For instance, from 1960 through
1964, the percentage of young age-group arrests for homicide,
forcible rape, aggravated assault, robbery, burglary, larceny
and auto theft more than doubled the population increase

of the finest timber trees ever
grown in this area ,or any other
The first of the important char-
acteristics of Longleaf is insect and
disease resistance. Southern fusi-
form rust, root rot, and tip moths
have little effect on Longleaf,
whereas they are deadly to the
other southern pines. Brownspot,
the primary disease of Longleaf, is
easily controlled by fire as Long-
leaf, once established, is the most
fire resistant species in the world.
Another important characteristic
if Longleaf is its ability to yield
large amounts of gum and high
quality timbers on relatively poor
sites. It also does a good job of
natural pruning and expresses a
pronounced dominance over other
trees. Longleaf's ability to with-
stand long periods of dry weather
in the seedling stage is another
very important attribute. This is
especially true here in Bay and
Gulf counties due to our sandy soil
that does not hold moisture well in
dry periods. The most outstanding
disadvantage of Longleaf is its
slow growth for the first few years
while in the grass stage.
No single forest species in the
south possesses so many desirable
traits and has been neglected be-
cause of our failure to work out
an effective procedure for its suc-
cessful regeneration. I hope Long-
leaf Pine will soon be on its way
