duPont Estate Defends Its
Holdings Before Committee
Edward Ball, trustee of the Al-
fred I. duPont Estate, which oper-
ates 30 banks in Florida and var-
ious industrial enterprises includ-
ing St. Joe Paper Company, St. Jo-
seph' Telephone and Telegraph
.Company' and Apalachicola North-
ern Railroad Conimany here in Port
St. Joe, declared that an attempt
by the Senate Banking Committee
to break up the duPont estate by
proposed legislation is discrimina-
Ball used as defense of the es-
tate the facts that the legislation
was prompted by labor leaders con-
ducting the Florida East Railroad
strike, and singled out George
Leighty, chairman of the Railway
Labor Executives' Association in
particular as having instigated the
current proceedings. He also used
a parade of character witnesses to
testify to the fact that both the
banking and industrial components
of the estate served a definite need
in the area served and were not
discriminatory or dictatorial in any
manner as was charged by Miami's
Mayor Robert King High and Apa-
lachicola editor J. A. Maloney.
Ball pointed out to the banking
committee Tuesday that these
three were the only ones who had
accused the estate of misconduct.
In pointing out the charges that
the proposed legislation was in-
spired by the FEC strike, FEC
president Winfred L. Thornton
cited several public statements in
which Leighty had threatened to
seek such action.
LEGAL FOR 40 YEARS
William B. Mills, president of
the Jacksonville Bank and an estate
trustee told the committee that "if
Congress passed a bill removing
the estate's exemption, it is in ef-
fect saying that of Mr. duPont that
his investments, after some 40
years of legality, are now illegal."
The duPont Estate was declar-
ed by the Senate Banking Com-
mittee to be exempt from the
bank holding act in 1956 due to
their designation as a charitable
organization. Now the Committee
seeks to remove this exemption
which will result in the Estate
having to sell off its banks or its
their so-called power resulting David Johnson, president, Fisher-

EASY OUT, EASY IN
BAKED BY FLOWERS BAKING COMPANY
Thomasville, Georgia Jacksonville, Florida
By Rev. Bill Graham
What is the Lord doing in heav-
en? This is the question we will
share- together today. As High
Priest, the Lord Jesus Christ has
entered into heaven, there to min-
ister as Priest in behalf of those
who are His own in the World. This
truth is found in Hebrews 4:15-15:
"Seeing then that we have a great
high priest, that is passed into the
heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let
us hold fast our profession. For we
have not an high priest which can-
not be touched with the feeling of
our infirmities; but was in all
points tempted like as we are, yet
We shall share His present min-
istry from a two fold approach, as
our Intercessor, and as our Advo-
cate. This ministry is to the Chris-
.1. OUR INTERCESSOR: This
ministry began before He left the
earth. We read this in John 17:9
where Jesus, in praying to the
Father, made this statement: "I
pray for them: I pray not for the
world, but for them which thou
hast given me; for they are thine."
This ministry is for the believer
only and will continue as long as
His own are in the world. As Inter-
cessor, His work has to do with
the weakness, the helplessness, and
the immaturity of the believer who
is on the earth. These are things
in which the believer is in no way
guilty. As the verse stated above
reveals, He knows the limitations
of His own, and the power and
strategy of the foe with whom His
own must contend. The priestly
intercession of our High Priest,
Jesus Christ, is effective and un-
ending. We find this truth set
forth in Hebrews 7:24,25: "But this
vision may win the President's Trophy. Of course,
their wives are a great helf to them so they are
on hand to help too. Giving the Port St. Joe area

man, because he continueth ever,
hath an unchangeable priesthood.
Wherefore he is able also to save
them (believers) to the uttermost
that come unto God by Him, see-
ing he ever liveth to make inter-
cesesion for them." Because He
ever liveth to make intercession
for us He is able to save to the
uttermost. This word "uttermost"
in its full translation would have
the meaning that "He is able to
save completely, perfectly, finally
and for all time those who come to
God by Him.
The believers can rest assured
that they are safe and secure in
the hand of God, because ,Pt ` ~

Betty.Pepis' Guide to Interior
We all hear the comment time
and again: "She dresses with such
good taste ..."; "Her House is fur-
nished with excellent taste." This
is what this book is about-taste---
but not in food though the matter
of taste does run through all we
say and do. Betty Pepis traces the
course of taste in house furnish-
ings during this century. Buildings
have changed during this period-
open floor plan, informal living
and dining, built-in- furniture
among others, so her discussions of
the effects of taste on interiors are

Adding a dog may be the answer

Getting rid of the dogs isn't the

even invade the house.
With the pets gone, the fleas
find themselves with no domestic

Due to the long dry spell in
April, ticks are also showing up
in the lawns of some homes.
The same treatment will kill both
fleas and ticks. It's a triple ap-
proach of treating pets, inside the
house and lawn area.
A 5 percent malathion dust is ef-
fective flea killer on pets. For an
indoor flea-tick control, apply a
ready-prepared household spray
containing malathion or liazinon.
A sprayer, a paint brush, or a
pump-type oil can is excellent for
applying insecticides to cracks in
the floors, around baseboards, and
in other dark, protected places. Be
sure to spray mats and furniture
on which pets sleep.
For an outdoor attack on pet
pests, use a jar spray attachment
on the garden hose. Spray mixtures
containing Sevin, malathion or dia-
zinon will kill both fleas and ticks.
As fleas like dry, sandy areas
for breeding, be sure to spray un-
der the house,under the tool shed
and in the sand bad where you

WHY YOUR AMARYLLIS
BULBS ARE NOT FLOWERING
Gainesville-You've just bought
some Amaryllis bulbs, planted
them, but they're not flowering.
Here are some reasons, accord-
ing to Dr. Tom Sheehan, associate
ornamental horticulturist with the
state's Agricultural Experiment
1. Prolonged drying of the bulbs
-You don't have to dry the bulbs.
They can be replanted immediately
after digging or if this isn't prac-
tical store them in dry sand or saw-
dust to stop excessive drying out.
2. Digging bulbs before maturity
-here, Sheehan says this means
digging the bulbs before the leaves
have turned yellow in the fall.
3. Too much shade-This reduces
the manufacture of food and causes
even strong bulbs to decrease in
vitality, produce smaller flowers
and finally die.
4. Planting in rich soil-Plant-
ing in soils very high in nitrogen
or over-fertilizing won't bring
flowers. They're one of the group
of plants that when grown in a fer-
tile soil tend to vegetate profusely.
Sheehan points out that under
the rich soil situation, the plant
will use food manufactured by the
leaves to produce new leaves in-
stead of accumulating and storing
food in the bulb which increases
the vigor of flowering and growth
the following year.

AMARYLLIS EASY TO GROW,
BUT NEED SPECIAL CARE
Gainesville-Amaryllis will grow
in any good, well-drained soil.
But don't forget to water, Moist-
en the soil 10-14 inches deep then
let dry before watering again.
Dr. Tom Sheehan, associate orna-
mental horticulturist with the
state's Agricultural Experiment
Station, says a low nitrogen fertil-
izer, such as 5-10-10 or 3-9-9 for-
mulas, should be used since high
nitrogen fertilizers tend to promote
vegetative growth and not flower
Fertilizers should be' applied
when the soil is being prepared at
a rate of 11/ pounds per 100 square
feet or per 100 feet of row for old
soils, or 3 pounds per 100 square
feet for new soil.
For established plantings, two or
three fertilizer applications using
1 pound per 100 square feet or 100
feet of row produce better results
than one heavy application.

This can be summed up by say-
ing, "It's rarely too late to stop
smoking." Of course, if a smoker
stops after lung cancer has already
begun, treatment of the disease by
surgery and/or radiation is imper-
ative. However, it seems there is
a long period during which cellular
changes and other symptoms of
health damage occur and before
cancer or other irreversible disease
begins, when cessation of smoking
is a definite safeguard to health.

WHO'S A SERF?
A couple of hundred years ago, the first Spanish soldiers
and missionaries came to California. A scane one hundred
years later, the first transcontinental railroad East and West
was joined together near Ogden, Utah, and the United States
as one nation'stretched from the Atlantic to the Pacific
Oceans. This was in 1869 and since that event the American
people have accomplished what would have taken a thousand
years of history in a slower moving time.
They were able to do this because they lived under a
government restrained by the Constitution from indulging
in political oppression or confiscating for the uses of the
"Crown" the property and income of the people.
But times seem to have changed and not in a direction
likely to improve the long term health of the goose that has
laid so many golden eggs. "Free" citizens and "free" enter-
prise alike find themselves sitting on the edge of their chairs
awaiting the latest word from Washington concerning the
current state of their affairs,and what government intends
to do about it. The cart has somehow been hitched to the
wrong end of the horse and the wonder is that so few people
seem to notice the error.
It is time that the people decide whether they really
want to be cared for as serfs on their own land. After that is
settled, they should make their decision known to their
elected officials at the polls at every opportunity.
BUILD PRIDE IN U. S.
Our public schools and colleges have been the target
of growing criticism for failure to teach the economic prin-
ciples on which the United States-was built and freedom rests.
In a recent editorial, the Rocky Mount, North Carolina,
Telegram said: "According to'the Education Committee of
the Winston-Salem Chamber of Commerce, precious few stu-
dents know about our-free enterprise system."
A questionnaire was circulated among the junior and
senior classes of a Forsyth County high school, one of the
questions being, "Which of the following do you think should
be government-owned or operated: Railroads. Banks. Steel
companies. None. (Only 34 per cent said they felt none should
A second question: "Do you agree that the fairest
economic system takes from each according to his ability
and gives to each according to his needs?" Said the Tele-
gram, "Now here is where we run head-on into the fantastic
ignorance of high school students about Communist eco-
nomic philosophy and socialism. On the foregoing question,
half of the students answered yes. That question states the
key feature of the Communist economic theory ... The Edu-
cation Committee of the Winston-Salem Chamber of Com-
merce sees the need for better understanding of the free
enterprise system-by promoting it in the schools. The idea
will probably be tried through a general course on basic eco-
nomics offered to teachers. With a firmer background in
basic economics for teachers, it is felt the students then can
receive a better economic understanding of the free enter-
So it would seem that the need is as great to teach our
form of capitalism in schools as it is to educate about the
dangers of Communism.

The Florida market for structural

"The market is highlighted in a

roll represented a 13 per cent in-

"The products made by these

and fuels used to make them. This
figure is one measure of the contri-

"In 1963 these plants in Florida
