James McDaniel, Chairman
Board of County Commissioners
Gulf County Courthouse
After meeting with your board
last Tuesday, December 13, 1966.
I made a trip to the site of the new
Courthouse and once again inves-
tigated the pile cluster that was
in question by Mr. Kennedy and
This was one of the clusters that
was investigated previously and it
was this cluster that our engineer
had also previously analyzed the
loading condition with the piles
being off center.
However, this time. I had- the
.Contractor dig, completely around
and under the .cap to a depth of
three feet and I measured the cir-
cumference of each pile and its
location in relation to the cap.
From this I made' a drawing (see
enclosure) and on the basis of this
drawing our engineer again ana-
lyzed the group and felt that it
was adequate (see letter enclosed).
I would like to bring to your
and the boards attention that the
mock up layout that was presented
at your last weeks meeting was
not a true representation of the
cluster. The constant reference to
the piles as being as much as 16
inches off center was also a mis-
representation as you can see by
the enclosed drawings. The most
any pile is off center is six inches.
I would like to recommend to
you and the board, that in the fu-
ture if there are any items you
may feel either warrants investiga-
tion or that something is being
done incorrectly, to please contact
either myself or the Contractor
rather than the news media. I do
not believe you are utilizing our
service fully unless this procedure
is followed. I feel that the pub-
licity received because of this mat-
ter was unjustified and inaccurate
and to a large, extent could have
been avoided. In my opinion the
only effect this publicity had was
to create in the minds of the citi-
zens of Gulf County that there is

image of Port St. Joe as a friendly
town on the Gulf Coast.
Recently, a tourist from Jack-
sonville was treated in the emer-
gency room at the hospital and
the patient wrote the following
letter expressing his appreciation
for kindnesses shown to him.
Administration and Staff,
Port St. Joe Municipal Hospital,
I am writing this letter to try
and express my gratitude for the
care and courtesies extended to
me on Sunday morning, December
It is a heartwarming experience
for a stranger to be received as I
was that morning, especially con-
sidering I looked somewhat rough
and know you must. still be clean-

The Hospital and community of
Port St. Joe can be extremely
proud of the staff in whose care
they have entrusted the hurt and
sick. If all hospitals in our country
are like yours, we can always be
sure of getting the kindest and
best treatment possible.
Thanking you again, I remain

It-would seem to us that the proper thing to do dur-
ing the remaining three days of this year would be to de-
termine to .do our best to no, longer hamper in any way
these projects -which will mean so much to our future. We
believe-that it behooves us here and now to forget pet
peeves, personal opinions and desires, and join together
to see the new courthouse completed, harmoniously .
and the new school complex got underway for the better-
ment of the county.
Nq matter which side of the fence you are standing
on concerning these two projects, we are talking to you.
It has disturbed us this year to see Gulf County-nor-
mally reasonably agreeable-slipping into the paths of. tur-
moil and back-biting that has made such sensational head-
lines in other counties of Florida and other states.
We think you will agree that our merchandise to sell
to the world is limited. If we are to grow and be prosper-
ous as well as well educated, we must band together. There
is no room for a tug of war in our small county.
Won't you join with us in making this resolution for
the coming year?
A Need for Fairness,to All Concerned
In the depression years of the thirties, the pendulum
of public and political favor began to swing sharply toward
organized labor. In. the face of concentrations of power
in industry and government, there was need for a balanc-
ing force to uphold the interests of the workingman. Legis-
lation was passed which helped the unions organize and
- gain the economic power to effectively represent their mem-
bers. Since this process first began, there have been sharp
differences of opinion and dire predictions of the conse-
quences that would result when national labor organiza-
tions gained too much power and held a whip hand over the
people, industry and perhaps even the government of the
United States. But, in the United States, such a buildup
of power is not likely. Majority public opinion expressed
In the polling booth still shapes public policy. As long as
that is true, it seems certain that when union power is ac-
tually being used against the public interest that power
will be curtailed. And, therein lies the question. At what
point will this occur, and how far will the pendulum swing
against labor organizations? There are a number of fac-
tors accumulating which indicate the time may be at hand,
and it is to be hoped that the pendulum will not swing too

Florida Pulpwood Purchased for Use,
In Georgia Totaled $57,488,000 '65"
About the handiest thing we had going this Christ-

handy as a fur-lined nickel.
ATLANTA-Purchases of pulp-
wood grown in Florida and deliv-
ered to pulp and paper mills in
1965 totaled $57,488,000, according
to a report this week by H. J.
Malsberger, general manager of
the Southern Pulpwood Conserva-
Florida's total for last year was
5 percent greater than the value
recorded for 1964 deliveries, he
use of paper and paperboard pro-
ducts is now at an all-time high
rate of 501 pounds a year. The pop-
ulation also is steadily increasing,
creating an ever-growing demand
for paper from trees, and there are
expanding needs -for land use in
competition with woodlands,
"It is inevitable," Mr. Malsber-
ger declared, "that increasingly
greater acreage will be taken up
by such things as superhighways,
urban expansion, industrial expan- -
sion, reservoirs for water storage
and flood control, and areas for
"As a result of all these needs,"
Mr. Malsberger said, "forest de-
velopment and protection must be
continuously intensified in order
that more and better trees may be
grown on all the land we have
available for that purpose, now
and in the future."
timent in regard to organized labor is inflation. The Ad-
ministration has apparently acknowledged that the old 3.2
per cent wage guidepost no longer limits pay raises. In
December, blue collar government employees in the Wash-
ington area received wage increases of 4.4 and 4.5 per
cent. Recent Labor Department figures show that during
the first 9 months of this year, major settlements in pri-
vate industry have run around 4 per cent, excluding
"fringes'", in the first year of the contracts and some in-
creases have gone to 7 per cent or more.
Union leaders are caught in a trap. The process of
inflation; kicked off by unrestrained government spending
and resultant excessive demand for goods and services,
is now being carried forward by rising costs of production
which must be reflected in higher prices. Much of the
cost of production is accounted for by the cost of labor.
Labor leaders seeking higher wage and fringe benefits for
union members, in order to keep up with inflation, only add
fuel to the fire. There is every likelihood that strikes will
.be called in major industries and that the inconvenience
and loss to the general public will be considerable. It is
clearly a time which calls for restraint and statesmanship
on the part of both labor and management if the processes
of collective bargaining are to be preserved.
If such statesmanship is not forthcoming, straws now
in the wind seem to point to a change in labor's political
fortunes. There is much. interest building for new legisla-
tion to deal with serious strikes--some kind of antistrike
law giving the President new and perhaps too much power
in settling labor .disputes. Union leaders have expressed
concern that they will be on the defensive in the new Con-
gress. Some even fear the possibility of compulsory arbi-
tration being imposed in all strike situations. If applied
to all industry, this would amount to wage control and
could set the stage for price control as well.
Many authorities feel that the -National Labor Rela-
tions Board as the primary agency administering our labor
policy has by its decisions contributed to an excessive build-
up of union power. If this is the case, it is reasoned that a
change of policy by the NLRB could work to correct the
situation. Harry L. Browne, for years an attorney for the
NLRB and nationally known specialist in- labor law, com-
ments on present labor strife and the "imbalance" in union
power which in part at least is a causative factor. He ob-
serves that ". .. an area for correction in both the cause
and the cure may well lie in the Board's reversal of a policy
that has upset the balance of power so essential to make
collective bargaining work in the public interest, thereby
giving our labor statutes a chance to work as Congress orig-
inally intended. If equality is restored, free collective bar-
gaining may yet be made to work in the national interest
without federal controls imposed on a free bargaining pro-
cess that all-the public, labor and management, and the
Congress alike-would abjure."

An unsolicited testimonial.
Pulpwood was produced in 65. of
Florida's 67 counties. The three
leading counties, and the value of
pulpwood shipped from each, were:
Nassau, $3,701,640; Taylor, $3,-
461,960 and Dixie, $2,281,660.
Florida's share in the 1965 pro-
duction of pulpwood was part of
another all-time high for the
South as a whole. The region's to-
tal for last year was $615,816,000,
a gain of 7 percent over 1964, the
Mr. Malsberger stressed that the
South's pulpwood harvest in 1965
accounted for 63 percent of the
nation's total production of raw
material for the pulp and paper
industry. He pointed out also that
the region's renewable forest re-
source and markets are so exten-
sive that pulpwood is being har-
vested in 91 percent of the counties
of the South..
Another favorable part of the
region's woodland picture, he ad-
ded, is that SPCA figures based on
government surveys show that
trees are growing faster than they
are being harvested for man's use
or lost to fire, insects and disease.

Hears Rev. Smith
The Port St. Joe Rotary Club met
for its annual: Christmas. program,
last Thursday at the Motel St. Joe.
Featured on the program was
Rev. C. Byron Smith, pastor of the
First Baptist Church, who gave
the Rotarians an interesting "His-
tory of Christmas".
Christmas as we know it is a
fairly new innovation. Christmas
'became a legal holiday in the U.
S. only ;110 years ago, in 1856 and.
the first state to do so was Massa-
chusetts. Our Christmas observan-
ces have their roots from several
different countries. Saint Nicho-
las came from the Germans; Santa
Claus from the Dutch settlers of
New York and the Christmas Car-
ols from Dutoh and English writ-
Prior to' the 1850's, Christmas
was strictly a religious festival be-
ing observed by the Christian
church only and marked the an-
niversary of the Birth of the Sav-
iour. The date was picked because
of its convenience to other reli-
gious Christian observances.
Student guest of the Club last
I Thursday was Mike Weston, Stu-
dent Body President of Port St.
Joe High School.

Social Security Taxes Going Up To
4.4 Pct. for Employer and Employee
The earnings of farm workers
are to be reported for Social Secur-
ity purposes before the end of Jan-
uary 1967, according to John V.
Carey, District manager- of the Pan-
ama City Social Security Office.
The Social Security report on farm
workers is only made once a year
and must cover wages paid during
the entire year 1966.
Farm workers who were paid as
es from marauding roots with a
sheet of metal roofing buried ver-
tically along the side of the bed.
Prepare the planting site prior
to securing the rose bushes. If the
soil is loose, light and sandy, re-
move it to a depth of 15 inches
and replace with compost of rot-
ted leaves, manure and rich ham-
mock soil. For best growth, be
sure the replaced material is quite
acid. Many sandy soils in. south
Florida contain too much lime for
best rose production, say Univer-
sity of Florida rose specialists.
Choose an overcast day for plant-
ing. First chack the plant carefully
and cut back the bush to four or
five eyes. Trim off all broken roots.
, Be sure the planting holes are
large enough to accommodate the
roots without crowding In the bot-
tom of each hole drop a handful
of garden fertilizer and cover light-
ly with top soil. Dip the roots of
each plant in a bucket of water
just before planting. Insert the
new bush so that the root system
will stand at the. same level that
it stood in the nursery row.
With a slow stream of water
from a hose, Iwork the soil about
'the roots, filling the hole to the
ground level. Pack firmly and put
a 'saucer of earth about the plant
to hold water.
When the rose bushes begin to
leaf out, -keep an eye out for dis-
eases such as black spot, brown
canker, and powdery mildew. In-
sect pests that may harm the bush-
es will include aphids, thrips, pum-
pkin bugs, cottony-cushion scale
and red spider mites.
