said, "We don't have this inter-,

Commissioner Coldewey stated
that the City's code, which is be-
ing used as a model in this case,
is too stringent.
Graham agreed that the city's
code is prohibitive to industry
since they usually maintain a
competent engineering staff to
do work which the code desig-
nates to be done by an inspector.
Mayor Pate then suggested that
a committee be appointed to go
over the code 'and a state code
drawing out the portions that
would provide necessary protec-
tion to the home owner and not
work a hardship on those who
maintain competent electrical
staffs. Pate suggested a commit-
tee of Commissioners Sexton and
Bob Holland and Ferrell Allen,
Jr., an engineer of St. Joe Paper
Company. The committee was to
have met yesterday afternoon, to
work out an agreeable code. :
Graham said he felt the county
would adopt any reasonable code
and preferred that it be the same
as one agreed to by both the City
of Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka.
The two Boards agreed to try

Topic of Conversation
We were the topic of conversation in Atlanta, Geor-
gia and Tallahassee last week. We weren't alone in being
talked about, but we knew the conversation was aimed
right at us, along with several other million people in this
Vice-President Spiro Agnew worked us over in At-
lanta when he said we just didn't understand the situa-
tion when we opposed revenue sharing by the Federal
Government with the states and municipalities. That may
be. We tend to be against what.we don't know about to
keep ourselves.out of trouble. All we know about "revenue
sharing",is that there is some plan being devised to take
part of the taxes collected by the Federal Government and
give it to the states and cities throughout the land to ease
their financial burdens. This is all we've seen in the papers
on. the matter, so ,it's all we know about it,
On the surface this tells us that the Federal Govern-
Sniment is going to collect a dollar in taxes, let it'roam
around through the various channels and fifty cents of it
come back to- where it was collected from.
Wecan't see sharing revenue that isn't there by taking"
money the long way around until there is even less there.
With a projected deficit forl the coming year of anywhere
from,20 to 29 billion dollars, we fail to see where the Fed-
eral Government is going to get money .to "share" unless
they just take iore. Because we are so skeptical, the
Vice-President was talking about us.
We were also the topic of conversation in Tallahassee
at Florida State University by Jane Fonda. Jane stated
that there were some people in this nation who were so
blind to the fact 'that revolution was coming that they
hadn't even gone out to purchase a hand gun tp protect
themselves with. This statement hit us right, between
the eyes. We'have to admit, we don't believe revolution is
coming; especially froni those who can't seem to work any-
thing but their jaw muscles and from whom all the' talk
of revolution seems to be coming.
Nor have we rushed out to purchase a hand gun to
protect ourselves from the baddies. We'll just have to
rely on a shotgun which was purchased. for hunting, but
which will have' to double for a defensive weapon should
the occasion ever arise when we need one. Frankly, wb
had much rather trust the shotgun to keep enemies at a
distance rather -than a hand gun.
We can'-t figure people like Jane out. Are they really
worried about this nation falling apart by the shallow'rea-
sons they give or are they just talking up the hand gun
sales in order to get a'no-gun law passed?

The report is out that preacher Millard Spikes is turning back
his salary to the Methodist Church so he can be allowed to stay here
in Port St. Joe where he can go fishing regularly and frequently.
The preacher does like to fish for things other than men. Of
course, he does his share of fishing for men too.
He's so addicted to fishing that it affects him sort of like nar.
cotics affect an addict. Fishing has grabbed Preacher .Spikes to
the point where he can't read a gas gauge or a thermometer.
The preacher and Tom Fleming Smith (and I blame Tom Flem-
ing for part of this, because is a fisherman from way back) took
off fishing last Thursday in the cold spell we were having at the
time. They went to Depot Creek and were wetting a hook when
Smith decided they ought to cross Lake Wimico and go to Indian
Bayou. "How much gas do we have", he asked the preacher. Spikes
cocked his good eye at the gauge and reported, "we have plenty,
at least three quarters of a tank" when, in truth, they only had a
Off they roared for Indian Bayou, noting all the while that
there was only one other boat out in the cold fishing. About the
time they arrived at the spot where they wanted to fish, the motor
sputtered and died out of gas! By this time, the preacher was
able to read the gauge correctly. So they broke out the paddles
and started paddling from Indian Bayou to White City for gas.
About the time they were one third of the way up the canal, the
other boat they had seen earlier came by and stopped. Upon ex-
plaining their predicament, the other fellow remarked he didn't
have enough gas to share or to pull their boat to White City, and
inade ready to crank up and go off leaving our two heroes to their
Tom Smith happened to remark, "Well preacher, back to the
paddle". The operator in the other boat perked up at this and said,
"Are you a preacher? I'm a preacher, too". Then he proceeded to
pour. a:ffee can of gas out of his tank for the paddlers. A coffee
can of gas to get them six miles.
Preacher Spikes said he didn't know the other "gentleman" and
didn't find out if he was Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, or what.
All he knew was that he wouldn't share more of his gas and he still
had to paddle about three miles to the landing. The other preacher
didn't send help, either. These preachers are rough on one another.
Reminds one of the man set upon by thieves beside the road and
not even the righteous man would lend help. Here we have a min-
ister trying to make himself more like the Apostle Peter and he
can't even get assistance from a fellow purveyor of the word.
Preacher Spikes is now taking lessons on how to read a gas
gauge and Tom Fleming Smith has purchased a gas can to carry
along on future fishing trips.
The latest issue of 'T"Family Circle" magazine says: "The new
woman is really the old ladyin disguise"!

One of the most interesting
drives in Florida is the 165
mile, sight filled journey from
Miami to Key West.
Many a tourist will boast of
record shattering speeds in
reaching Key West, but the
Keys should be savored and
enjoyed. A person could spend
a week driving from Miami to
the Southernmost tip of the
continental United States and
still not see it all.
During the journey from
mainland Miami to Key West,
the traveller crosses 42 bridges
from 37 feet long to one bridge
which is just a few feet short of
seven miles in length. On your

your right is the GulfI '

Notes Direct From The
This is written while in Miami attending the Spring and Sum-
mer market. A special Show and Merchandise display was held by
the -Southern Apparel Exhibitors.. Of course, Mrs. B. does the
footwork and shops diligently, deliberately and thoroughly among
the hundreds of attractive and luxurious booth displays. It is
indeed a stimulating and rich experience even though it draws the
sap and slows the snap from one's head to toes. The Florida wear-
ables bought just for you (selected with utmost care) will be roll-
ing soon in Boyles back door. We predict it'll be taken out the
front door with gusto and smiling faces. Just keep your eye on
BOYLES in '71 for the most attractive and thrilling apparel and
footwear for the family ever shown in Port St. Joe!
We decided to spend another week since daughter Glenna (and
our three grandchildren) live in Miami Springs. Yes, it's a full
house at the William J. Holten's residence when the eight of us
tuck in! No, not a dull moment from dawn to later than dusk!

walk, walk and walk, just occasionally seeing an employee busy
putting up stock or hanging over a counter engaged intently in con-
versation with one or more standing, employees. Most of them
dislike being interrupted by a customer inquiry. THEN not
one in ten can give you the information you need. This rural and
humble writer GAVE UP after five or six (in five or six cold and
indifferent stores). Frankly, he'd just as soon try to shop in the
proverbial Wilderness of Judea! However, we partially understand
the numerous and difficult problems facing the management of the
giant stores in all- shopping stores. Our wish is that all may have
prosperity and success It's just that NO ONE could ran fast
enough toget one of those monsters off on us! (No one would think
of-trying either!) Well we wound up doing our little shopping (in-
cluding a few toys, etc., for the grandchildren) at a warm, friendly
home owned variety store only a block from the Holten home, in
the small Miami Springs shopping district. We were given prompt
attention by the owner along with an assistant. We came out happy
,and refreshed in direct contrast to the exasperating experience
in the Big Time, so-called BEg Value shopping centers!! We breath-
ed a prayer of gratefulness for the little, but BRAVE independent
merchants. BOYLES was included. Seriously, America cannot
afford to lose this friendly efficient SERVICE with a HEART, even
though it fails to cover the entire field in many instances. Shop-
ping would be far more difficult and regimented for millions of
common -people like us. We, who are small merchants i'hould pe

Freeman Says New Products Being
Introduced. Promises Good Future
Robert Freeman, manager of
-Basic Magnesia said tbing. look
good in the future for the local
plant, which manufactures mag-
nesia oxide from sea water and
dolomite lime. Freeman was
speaking to the Port St. Joe Ro-
tary Club last Thursday, when
he said the needs of the parent
company in Cleveland, Ohio, was
^ra pretty good sign that the plant
'would operate regularly.
Freeman was quick to pint out
qtat all wasn't rosy, however.
Full poeration depends on the
quality of products now being
manufactured and of new pro-
dudts now undergoing experimen-
tation at the plant. "An almost
certain steel strike this year
could affect our operations also",
Freeman said. The products from
the plant are used mostly in the,
manufacture of furnace' liners for
steel mills.. .
Freeman said the plant has
now .completely converted from

GAINESVILLE Trees are an
important factor in improving our
environment, according to Exten-
sion Forester Tony Jensen, Florida
Cooperative Extension Service.
Trees, whether in rural forests
or in city parks or hedgerows, make
valuable contributions of, many
kinds, he explains. In addition to
providing shade and beauty and
cutting down on noise pollution,
they also improve the quality of
the air by removing carbon dioxide
and giving off oxygen.
Mulch formed by leaves and twigs
helps to conserve water for drink-
ing, domestic and agricultural pur-
poses, as well 'as for recreation and
Jensen points out the forests are
essential for good hunting and
In certain areas without forests,
water would be too warm for good
fishing. And trees add to the quan-
tity and quality of wild game.
Tree buds and fruit, and even
young trees themselves, serve as
food for many birds and animals.
Many types of game use older
trees for cover aid concealment.
Forests also provide a beautiful
and often essential setting for
many outdoor recreation activities.
"It will pay us in many ways to
manage our wooded areas wisely
both rural forests and city shade
trees," Jensen says. "Without our
trees, we'd have less air and water,
a less enjoyable environment,; and
fewer outdoor activities."
sea shells to dolomite as a source
of lime for their operations. "The
dolomite costs more, Freeman
said, but he pointed out that
there were economies realized in
operation' which offset some of
the extra costs.
Freeman said the plant is ex-
perimenting with by-products
from its plant, which he said
would determine future growth.
The main product being made at
.the plant is a trade chemical
"Magox" which is used in agricul-
ture. "We're trying to decide
now how far to go with this pro-
duct", Freeman said.
By and large, Freeman said
the outlook for the plant is bet-
ter this year than last, and if new
products can be brought up to
standard, the plant should have a
good year. i
