The developer has a background of home building in
the St. Petersburg area and considerable land development
Initial planning also will ask for a local business group

light of this, some cuts should
be made this year.
The County had approved of
a budget of $901,912.00 calling
for a levy of 15.32 mills. The
Comptroller said, "this is too
much." The State office went on
"to suggest at least a $20,000 to

If one watched the appalling opening of the 35th,
Democratic .Natbonal Convention on televisionn Monday
night, it would be'par< what is wrong with the Dem-
bcratic party and- for a large part--wlht is wrong with
our country today.
It isn't the big things. The big things we can see
everyday will be kept in check. Maybe they will be kept
jtist on the edge of ignition, but their size makes them
safe. But the little things creep up on our scene and;
before you know it, we are undone like a dog that
suddenly finds he has too many fleas, he doesn't know
where to scratch first, so he just runs around in -circles.
'" Two items struck us Monday night. First, hardly a
person in the auditorium bowed his head for the invoca-
tion prayer. To their credit, 'mbit everyone stopped talk-
ing, but the itch was apparent to get started again while
the prayer was being said. One could see it as the camera
panned the audience. Such shouldn't be in our country.
In the United States--especially-everyone should bow
, his head in reverence when prayer is being offered. May-
be this is the.reason we have allowed prayers to be out-
lawed from our schools on the slim premise that someone
present might'not believe in prayer-and we would invade
upon their "rights".
The second item struck 'us right between the eyes.
Never have we hard the Nationgl Anthem, "The Star
Spangled Banner" so damaged. By the time Aretha
Frknklingot through with it,'It could easily be entitled,
"The Star MNLED manner .
We have strong feelings about how "The Star Span-
gled Banner" should be peformed... just like it is writ-
tef,. without any paraphrazng,; interpretation, or chang-
ing of rE h. he nthem h wa* written for a purpose
and its author laid out the tempo, the metre and the
expression to say just, What h thought a patriot should
say'and how he should say it. Wde lieve it shouldn't be
We feel so strongly on this that we think it should
be mandatory that the first tune any high school or col-
lege band learns to play correctly should be' "The Star
Spangled Banner". The marches, overtures and alma
maters cai wait. We think every member of every band
should @te as familiar with his part in our National An-
them as he is with brushing his teeth.'
It doesn't bother us that the Democrats selected a
Negro singer..to sing tbe "B:.nner". 1This isn't our reason.
- for complaint at all. But why select someone who would
murder the tune so much the orchestra would have to
Why couldn't the Democrats have selected someone
like Leslie. Uggums, Mfhalian Jackson, Johnny Mathis,
Leontine Price or Harry Belafonte to name a few?
At least, they could have picked someone who knew-
Plans and Reality
"There will, of course, be a certain number of relief
cases where work will not furnish that answer, but it is
my thought that in these cases all of the relief expendi-
tures should once more be borne by the states and locali-
ties as they used to be."
No, that i4 not Governor Reagan speaking. Npr were
those lines penned by Barry Goldwatet. The quotation
is from. a letter that Franklin D. Roosevelt wrote to Col.
Edward 'M. House on November 27, 1934.
The lessons of history, he continued, "confirmed by
the evidence immediately before me, show conclusively
that continued dependence upon relief induces a mqral and
spiritual disintegration fundamentally destructive to the
Still later, in a message to Congress in 1935, President
Roosevelt declared: "The Federal Government must and
shall quit this business of relief To dole out relief in
this way is to administer a narcotic, a subtle destroyer of
the human spirit."
Congress passed the Social Security Act on August 14,
1935. The original act levied, "in addition to other taxes",
an "income tax" of one percent for each of three years be-
ginning' in 1937 on the first $3,000 of the employee's in-
come. The tax rate was increased one-half of one percent
each three years, and was fixed at three percent after 1948.
Equal amounts for each employee, designated "an excise
tax", were required to be paid by the employer. "The taxes
imposed by this title shall be collected by the Bureau of
Internal Revenue and shall be paid into the Treasury
of the United States as internal revenue collections."
Those were the provisions of the, original act. Sec-
tion 1104 provided: "The right to alter, amend, or repeal
any provision of this Act is hereby reserved to the Con-'
gress." Many amendments and alternatives have been
made, seemingly in election years, and principally in the
direction of increasing the number of "covered employees"
and increasing payments in not-too-successful efforts to
keep pace-with inflation.
Presently, the tax rate for both employer and em-
'ployee is 4.4 percent on the fist $7800 of pay--schedules
to increase to 5.9 percent for 1987 and after.
Such is the law, and a, brief record of its growth.
It hasn't abolished the relief roles. They are still
growing. And FDR was probably right about the evils
that ensue. '
A THOUGHT HAS CROSSED OUR MIND
We read a lot these days about the unrest in the "fil-
thy ghettos". The ,slick magazines and TV make a lot
of "hay" interviewing this resident and that one about
the filth, the rats, mice and roaches that abound in the
ghettos and want the Government to do something about
As we see it, no landlord is responsible for coming in
to clean up a tennant's living quarters every day or,
his yard. or street, as the case may be. What we are
getting- at-is that those living in the ghettos helped to
make them ghettos simply by failing to practice common.
hygiene and cleanliness. As plentiful as are cleaning
agents on our markets today, nobody has an excuse for
living in filth; other than sorriness., Witi modern gar-
bage collection practices .today one has only to round up
'he trash and- lut it in containers for the trucks to haul
off. This would practically do away with the rats, the
mice and the roaches and return the ghettos back to their
original status of over-crowded residences.
Here the residents would have a legitimate -gripe.
"The Rise of Communism"

The next step was the univer-
sities. Teachers were purged and
replaced with those who follow-
ed the Party line, whether or not
they were qualified to teach.
Next' came the Church-the na-
tional Orthodox Church. It was
not time to do away with the
church because the people, in
general had a strong religious
sense. So, a start was made to
co-operate with the Church until
such time as it could be dissol-
This "co-operation"' with the
Church lasted one year. Then, as
usual, propaganda was initiated
against the priests-they were
charged with refusing to donate
money y and surrender gold
church vessels as a' contribution
to famine 'relief. Propaganda
screamed that while the; "work-
ers" were starving the priests
were eating off golden plates.
This propaganda was accepted

prehensive descriptions of tribess
and what they do for Floridians"
was put forward 'by Marcus G.
Rawls, a member of the Flor-
ida Board of Forestry. Mr. Rawls
is from Jacksonville, where he
manages the forestry and timber-
lands division of St. Regis Pa-
per Company. -
"Since the early development
of Florida, the forest industry
has played a key role "in the
state's growing economy," he
notes. "It continues and will
continue in the future to cn-
tribute substantially to Florida's
economic health and the welfare
of its citizens."
Continuing Mr. Rawls shows
that forest industry through its
products and related processing
generates more than $1.2 billion
in Florida each year "to claim
the undisputed lead in Florida
The forest industry employs
15 per cent of all Florida work-
ers, pays 14 per cent of the man-
ufacturing payroll and produces
16 per cent of the wholesale val-
ue of products manufactured in
Like tourism, the forest indus-
try is to be found represented
in all Florida's 67 counties, in-'
cludng pulp and paper mills, na-
val stores operations, chemical
plants, treating plants, veneer
mills, box and .crate factories
and many other manufacturers
A typical Florida resident gets
out of bed in the morning, brush-
es his teeth, and the very tooth-
paste he uses contains cellulose
pulp, perhaps from a tree grown
in Florida. He turns on the ra-
dio or TV for the news that
comes to him via electronic com-
ponent parts, many of them
made largely from paper. Por-
tions of his shoes and clothing
are made from wood fiber. When
he drives to work, he grips a
steering..wheel made from wood
fiber as are the auto's seat
-covers; -padded dash, and -the
fabric of the tires!
Chances are he uses glasses,
the frames of which are made in
part from wood pulp. Much of
his job depends upon inf6rma-
tion printed on .paper. His ifome,
office and other buildings are-
made and decorated in whole or
,in part from trees.
The list's almost endless, since
'more than 5,000 different pro-
ducts are made from trees.
It is the demand for products
that has stimulated growth and
change within the forest- indus-
try. In years gone by, lumber
and naval stores were the giants
in Florida's forest industry. To-
day, however, pulp and paper
manufacturing is the leader, Mr.
Rawls points out.
Pulp and 'paper companies
produce poine $86 -million in
Florida payrfols annually, more
than half of the forest industry's
manufacturing payroll. Lumber
payrolls total some $23 million.
Veneer mills account for $6.5
million, per year.
In dollars and cents, the an-

sulfate pulp mill process anoth-
er oil comes out of the pulp call-
ed crude tall oil (an angliciz-
ing of the Norwegian-discovered
oil named, "TALOJA".) Sulfate
naval stores processors use these
sulfate pulp mill by-products,
turpentine and tall oil, to pro-
duce industrial chemicals.
In Jacksonville, there is a na-
val stores plant that has exper-
ienced all three fields of naval
stores- This plant was built in
board. Primary products from
the stump's resins are wood ro-
sin and steam distilled pine oil.
SULFATE NAVAL STORES:
Use of the forest, particularly
in Florida, has shifted from lum-
ber at the turn of the century
to kraft paper and cellulose to-
day. Nine pulp mills in Florida
turn out better than 3 million
tons of paper and cellulose an-
nually, making Florida the na-
tion's third largest paper pro-
ducing state. And all of this
grew from the first pulp mill
built in Panama City in the early
1930's! These pulp mills use the
pine tree for raw material;
(don't worry about forest deple-
tion-the State Forestry Board
says that for every tree cut in
Florida, three are planted. Last
year, Florida planted 100 million
seedling trees, making 1967 the
5th year in succession that Flor-
ida led all other states in seed-
Most of these pulp mills use a
sulfate chemical to reduce the
chipped pine wood to fibers (pa-
per being made of wood fibers).
In the sulfate "cook" of wood
chips, vapors are drawn off and
condensed to yield a crude tur-
pentine. Further along in the

ed, and this supply, or stores,
was used almost entirely for na-
val operations. Today, the term,
"naval stores", has been general-
ized to indicate all products
made from pine tree derivatives.
Naval stores began in Bibli-
cal times. In Genesis, the Bible
records Noah pitching the ark
to render it waterproof. MVost au-'
thorities believe this pitch was
a product from the pine tree.
Throughout the centuries, pine
pitch for naval vessels was a ne-
cessary commodity. Great Britain
found vast stands of natural pine
forests in America, and this
source .of'naval stores material
was one reason for colonization
here. The importance of this in-
dustry to the early settlers was
evidenced by their frequent use-
of the pine tree as a symbol on
colonial flags and coins. The
Jamestown settlement of 1607
was kept from being abandoned
in its first few years of existence
by returning needed pine tar to
England. North Carolina colon-
ists decided to "concentrate"
their shipments of pine tar for
'shipment -to England, and would
dig pits, fill them with tar and
set it aflame. This accelerated
the tar's evaporation into pitch,
which they dug out into barrels
and also got onto their boots;
that custom has titled North
Carolina even to this day as the
"Tar Heel State".
At this time there are three
major categories to the naval
stores field, all of which oper-
ate on a large scale in the South-
eastern United States. These
there are called "Gum Naval
Stores", '."Wood Naval Stores",
and "Sulfate Naval Stores". All
three operate in one phase or an-
other in Florida, adding a signi-
ficant portion to Florida's For-
est Products Industry. (Florida's
forests cover 60% of'the state's
land area, and produce 100,000
jobs, while generating an an-
nual .1.2 billion dollar value and
yielding 5,000 different prod-

Budget for Kiwanis
Charles Brock, Port St. Joe's
City Auditor and Clerk told the
Kiwanis Club Tuesday at noon
that the City's budget for the com-
ing fiscal year would be $18,560
higher than last year, but would
reflect a two and a half mill drop
in real estate taxes. The new City
budget for 1968-69 will total $638,-

The biggest item of increase in
the new City budget was in sal-
'aries. This item was increased by
$26 340.00, mostly by the hiring.of
new personnel. The new budget
provides pay for an additional po-
lice officer and 24-hour dispatch
service hired by the Police and
Fire Departments. These men were
hired but not budgeted in the cur-
rent year's operation.
Brock' pointed out that the City
will pay out $52.480 in bonds and
interest during the next fiscal
year. He stated that all present

street paving and $13,675 for a
Brock stated that for the third
straight year, the City had 100%
collection of all ad valorem taxes.
GUM NAVAL STORES: Using
the sap of the pine tree to make
pitch is the industry with a his-
tory dating back to Biblical
times. V-cuts in the sides of
pines, and cups catching the
tree's sap, are often seen to-
day collecting the raw material.
The pine sap, or gum, is then
use d by central prdicesping
plants to make gum rosin 'and
WOOD NAVAL STORES: Ear-
ly in the 1900's, utilization of
pine tree stumps was altered
from torches to light the night,
over into production of indus-
trial products. This lightwoodd"
has a high resiny content. Wood
Naval Stores people collect this
stump wood& and used to cook
it in sealed-atmosphere furnaces
to boil out the resin material
called wood oils. The wood oils
were used to make pitch prod-
ucts, and the wood itself was re-
duced to a charcoal by-product.
The industry ha's shifted empha-
sis, and today the stump wood
is almost entirely processed by
reducing it to chips and extract-
ing the resins with solvents. The
remaining wood is steamed to
recover the solvents, and then
used in making construction

1930 until 1948. Since 1957, how-

converts sulfate turpentine into

household cleaners. It also pro-
duces aromatic oils (which are
sold for toiletry and cosmetic in-
gredients) to perfumery houses

years, this plant has also sophis-
ticated its chemistry enough to

From Noah's ark in Biblical
