I think it's time the sportsmen of Gulf County did
something about the people of Bay county coming over
re and ruining our hunting and fishing.> t's realize
the beginning that all Bay county sportsmeit-are not
this sort, but many of them are causing hunting and
thing lands to be removed from the use of our people.
STwo weeks ago, Gulf Timberlands put their lands off
ts to hunters. An official of the company explained
e that bird hunters from Bay County came over here
a ran vehicles over their fields, tearing up the crops,
so ey had to post the land.
'Many Gulf County dove hunters enjoyed themselves
la year oh the fields of Gulf Timberlands and First
A nrican Farms. If Gulf Timberlands has found it neces-
sar to post their lands, can First American Farms be
far behind in posting theirs?
e had a run-in with some of these Bay County"
sportsmenn" last week end. Our young men's Sunday__
Schcol class of the Long Avenue'Baptist Church took-an
overnight fishing trip to the Chipola River. We werd

work with no regard to our party trying to get some
sleep- They violated the law by putting their boats in
the water and took off downstream with head lights and
guns 41 their boats.I
Ve might add that they stole part of our equipment
while they were unloading. There was nobody else at
the si^ where we were, so Vwe saw no reason to worry
I this is normal with these people, it is time the peo-
ple of Gulf County band together to do something about
it. W* trust that no Gulf County sportsmen come roar-

All of our common lawn grasses
are affected by nematodes. Bahia
grasses appear to be least affect-

these grasses. Generally two or
more types are found in lawns and
in many cases seven or eight types
may be present in a single lawn.
This makes nematode control a
difficult problem since one type

Meanwhile, in another matter
dealing with registration of
young people, the Secretary and
Dorothy Glisson, director of the
Division of Elections in the Sec-
retary of State's Office have
sent a memorandum to county
supervisors of election with sug-
gested guidelines to be used in
determining proof of qualifica-
tions for registration.
The suggested guidelines, in-
tended to be helpful to supervi-
sors, are the result of a work-
shop of supervisors and review
by the Secretary of State's staff
and the office of Attorney Gen-
eral Robert Shevin.
"There are many items of
proof which may be accepted,"
the memorandum said. Mrs. Glis-
son said some of these items of
proof can include telephone
book listings, leave agreements,
library cards, driver's licenses,
draft board cards, credit bureau
information and many others.

A large part of the Gulf Coun-
ty lands of highest soybeans pro-

are finer textured soils) are poor-

great crop hazard unless they

After a few years of experienc-

conditions, it now appears that
the prospects are bright (barring
lots of hurricane water, etc.) for
a better production this year-

Metcalf's charge, inserted in
the Congressional Record, was
considerably off base, as events
proved. But the news media
trumpeted it all across the na-

a rate boost when somebody says
you're rolling in dough already.
The Senator alleged that all
three of the state's big power

Light Co., of Miami, Tampa Elec-
tric Co., and Florida Power Corp.
-had far exceeded a 6.95 per
cent "profit limit"' set by the

Well, thqe is no such animal.
David Swafford, director of
PSC's rating division in Talla-
hassee, quickly responded that
regulators' don't and can't go
: .by the familiar "profit margin"
-the ratio of profits to sales-
in judging utilities.
"The. law says they're enti-
tled to a 'sufficient rate, of re-
turn' on any. property used and
useful,' but there's no set rate--
'that's what we have all these
rate hearings, about,'"- said Swaf-
Metcalf was correct in report-,
ing Florida Power's profit mar-
gin, which was 19.79 per cent
last year-if you go by the ac-
counting method used at the cor-
ner grocery store. Tampa Eiec-
trie's was 18.63 per cent and
Florida Power and Light's 14.24.
But grocery store can start

$500,00 annual sales volume with
it. His profit may be low, per-

Ssttled- his bills with the whole-

Suppose, however, he had to
invest' $500,000 to start the bus-
iness. Suppose he took the $100,-'
000 he had and put it with $400,-
006 borrowed at 9 per -cent to
build a really classy., food mart.
And suppose he still pulled in
only $50,000 in sales for a profit
margin-, of $1,0,000-$15,000 or
2-3 per cent.
He would be wiped out in no
time. The interest cost on his
$400,000 borrowing would- run
him $36,000 the first year.'
That, in a nutshell oversimpli-
fipation for purposes of clarity,
.explains the, utilities' predica-
ment. Florida Power last year
had a whopping $31-million in
profit out of the $158-million col-
lected in .revenues,, for the "pro-
fit margin" of 19.79 per cent-
that Metcalf grumbled about.
But its. total investment in
plant was something like $685-
million. Aid the "capitalization"
behind that-the money accumu-
lated to build a 32-county elec-
tric company-was $588-million
(5& per cent long-term borrow-
ing, 44 per cent common and
Looking at last year's $158-mil-
lion in revenues, you find that
after paying $57-million in oper-
ating expenses, $30-million in
taxes, $17-million in interest
(borrowing costs), $17-million in.
stock dividends (the 3.05 per
cent yield on common isn't much
to brag about), and $23-million in
assorted, other. charges, the big
fat utility ended up with about
$14~-million in income it could
play around with. 7
That was promptly plowed into
a $700-million construction pro-
gram needed to keep up with
Florida's explosive growth. By
reinvesting this in the business,
the company avoided that much
more high-cost borrowing and
earned a good bond rating on
Wall Street (where it still must
borrow $150-million in 1971-72).
With inflation slashing at
utilities no less than at thee
and me, Florida Power's net in-
come has been slipping lately-
but this essay isn't intended to
defend its rate boost plea. The
merits of that will be weighed
at PSC public hearings next
But there is a difference be-
tween carrots and kilowatts, and
this is aimed only at explaining
how Sen. Metcalf confused his
grocery store with his electricity
company. And how it happens
that you're seeing an. amiable

Perez performing on the TV

Many Plants Are
Many gardeners and homeown-
ers are not aware that several of
our common landscape plants con-
tain poisonous substances. The
types of toxic substances vary
considerably. Some can result in
skin irritation similar to ivy poi-
soning while others are only dan-
gerous if eaten. Most of these
plants have a very unpleasent
taste and it is not likely that any-
one but children would chew or
swallow the plant parts. However,
most youngsters will put practi-
cally anything in their mouths and
with some plants severe poison-
ing can occur. Susceptibility to poi-
sonous plants varies among indi-
viduals so you might be affected
by a certain plant while your
neighbor is not bothered. Several
!of the poisonous plants found i-
Iround the home are described in
the following paragraphs.
Skin irritation occurs in many
persons if they contact the Aap o1
Crown-of-thorns, Milkobush. (Pen-
cil eaetus), Poinsettia, Top Prim.
rose, Mango and Ligustrum (pri.
vet). Even the foliage of 'these
plants car cause dermatitis in
some individuals. .
Several common- plants have
seeds which are toxic Barbados-
nut, Castor bean, Rosary pea,
Jimsonweed, Pokeweed and Tung
tree. The Rosary pea (Crabeye,
Jequirity pea) is extremely toxic.
One seed if chewed and swallowed
can be fatal. The foliage of the
Tung tree, Pokeweed, Jimsonweed
and Rosary pea can also be dan-
Dieffenbachia or dumb-cane is
toxic if chewed or swallowed. The
toxin causes irritation and swel-
ling of the throat and temporary
loss of speech; thus the common
Practically all plant parts -
leaves, stems, and flowers of
Yellow allamanda, Crape-jasmine,
Hydrangea. Carolina jessamine,
Gloriosa lily and Oleander are
toxic. Tubers of the Gloriosa lily
are especially dangerous as are all
parts of the common and yellow
Oleander. One leaf of the Oleander
is reported to be sufficient to kill
smoke from burning Oleander
stems and leaves has caused poi-
The plants mentioned above are
just a few of the poisoning species
found around the home. Others
such as poison ivy and oak occur
in fields and woods. Most of these
plants are not considered to be
very dangerous except to child-
ren who would chew or even swal-
low the plant parts. If children
are taught not to put leaves,
flowers, etc. in their mouths, acci-
dental poisonings can usually be.

when meeting or overtaking a
school bus and be prepared to
stop at any time," concluded Clif-
