Last Budget Hearings Set


With Franklin Thomas, the Sharks
point guard sitting on the side-lines
recuperating from a stay in the hospital
from pneumonia and sharp-shooting
Ricky Larry nursing a deep thigh
bruise, the Sharks still put it all
together Tuesday night to clip the wings
of the Wakulla War Eagles and win the
Region 2-A basketball tournament.
The win will send the Sharks to
Chipley Saturday night for an 8:30 p.m.,
EST game with -the Tigers, who
bounced DeFuniak Springs, 49-48 Tues-
day night to win the Region 1-A title.
The winner of Saturday night's
game will take that coveted trip to
Lakeland on March 13 and 14 to
compete for the State 2-A title.
The Sharks have been there before
and won twice.
Things looked tense for the first
period of play Tuesday night, as the
Sharks and War Eagles played on even
terms. The Eagles had a two-point lead
about mid-way in the first period, but
Ricky Larry took care of that with a
field goal with 1:53 left in the period to
put the Sharks two points ahead. They
were never behind for the rest of the
game, although the score remained
close.
The Sharks took their biggest lead
of the game with 4:10 left in the third


period, when Larry again hit a field
goal to give the Sharks a seven point
lead. John Pittman, Rozelle Jenkins
and Larry then went to Work, sinking
hard fought baskets to pull away from
the Eagles and keep them contained
under the basket.
The Sharks played slow-down the
last minute of the third period, with
their seven point lead, when, with only
seconds left on the buzzer, Ricky Larry
drove in for a last second shot. He was
surrounded by Eagles when he went up
for the shot, so he dumped the ball off to
Jenkins, who put it in for two points and
a nine point lead at the buzzer.
The Sharks had their premier
rebounder, John Pittman, foul out late
in the fourth period, but Thomas came
off the bench to play the rest of the
game. Ronnie Harris and James Mills
fouled out in the last quarter for the
War Eagles. It was Harris who handed
the Sharks their only defeat of the
season, by one point, when he sank a 25
footer in Wakulla at the buzzer to win
the Gulf Coast Conference tournament
for the Eagles over the Sharks.
The lack of free throws in Wakulla
cost the Sharks that game. Their free
throw shooting percentage Tuesday
night won that one. Both teams had
scored 40 points on field goals, but the


Sharks sank 12 of their 18 free throw
attempts while the Eagles collected
only three of eight.
Adding to his thigh injury, Ricky
Larry jammed a finger in the last
period of the game Tuesday, to add to
the Sharks injuries going into the
Region game with Chipley.
Despite his painful leg injury,
Larry still led the Shark scoring, even
though he was short of his 23 point
average. Larry sank 15 points. Rozelle
Jenkins, who took the floor to replace
the ailing Franklin Thomas, put 14:
points on the board for the Sharks. John
Pittman added 10.
Wakulla's big man, Steve Spears,
at 6'7", led the Eagles' scoring with 21
points.
The Sharks continue to have that
little one point margin by the Waj
Eagles in the conference tournament
marring an otherwise perfect seasort
The Sharks are now 27-1 on the year.

Area Real Estate Firms Merge


Two area real estate firms merged this
past week, pooling their staffs into one firm to
serve the real estate needs of the eastern Bay
county-Gulf county area.
E. B. Miller and Ike Duren announced on
AMonday of this week they had merged their
'two firms and will be known in the future as
Century 21, St. Joseph Bay Realty. The two
firms were Miller's Century 21 firm and
Duren's Gallery of Homes.
The new offices of the merged firm will be
at 900 Highway 98, Fiesta Plaza in Mexico


options available for provid-
ing the service and an esti-
mated cost to the customers in
the two hearings.
The first public hearing will
be held in White City in the
Fire Station Tuesday night of
next week. Both Tisdale and
the Board of Commissioners
will meet with the citizens at
7:00 p.m., to explain the
proposed system to them.
Next Thursday at 7:00, the
same team will meet with
residents of the St. Joe Beach
area, from Beacon Hill south
to Highland View, at the
Beach Baptist Chapel.
Engineers have said there
are two options available to
both areas for a source of
supply. These are drilling


on-site wells and construction
of a treatment plant or piping
treated water from the City of
Port St. Joe. No definite cost
figures have been worked up,
on the two options as yet, but
Tisdale, in a preliminary
report to the County Commis-
sion a month ago said he felt
the cost of both options would
probably be about equal.
The plans are still very
preliminary. Thus far, engin-
eers have counted potential
customers in both areas and
computed the amount of pip-
ing which would have to be
laid. With the information now
available and based on aver-
age construction costs, Tis-
dale told the Commission the

CITY HEARING
The City of Port St. Joe will
have its final budget hearing
at 5:01 Tuesday afternoon of
next week, before officially
setting its budget-.and mill
rate.
Last Thursday's hearing
saw only four persons come
before the Commission, with
only one, Stiles Brown, offer-
ing any opposition to the
.proposed City budget.
Brown asked the board to
cut its increase back to 12.5
percent in keeping with the
rate of inflation.
The City is increasing its
last year's budget by $50,000,
largely because of increased
costs in energy and to provide
a pay increase for its work
force. The only new capital
outlay expenditure in the new
City budget is some $38,000 for
a new garbage truck. This
expenditure is still uncertain
until the truck is finally

Beach.
According to Miller and Duren, there will
be 10 brokers and sales people working out of
the new office to serve every real estate need
of the area, from sales to purchases,
including appraisals, property management,
rentals, and other services.
Duren and Miller further stated they
were convinced of the future growth and
profit potential of the area from Mexico
Beach into all of Gulf County.


Two Shaken Up In Plane Crash


Gene Floore and Bubba Harmon were shaken up in a
plane crash last Thursday afternoon near the Harmon farm
between Beacon Hill and Overstreet.
Floore, who was flying the plane, landed in a field on the
Harmon farm to pick up Harmon who was working with a
piece of earth moving equipment in the field and take him for
a ride.


With Harmon inside as a passenger, Floore taxied up the
'field for a take-off and didn't get high enough off the ground
before they reached a dump truck parked at the end of the
field. A wing of the plane hit the dump truck, flipping the
plane over into a dirt pit into a pile of soft dirt.
Both men were bumped and bruised, but neither were
seriously hurt. The plane was badly damaged in the accident.




Final Census


Count Official


The U. S. Census Bureau
released its official count
this past week, showing
Gulf County. with an in-
crease in population and
Port St. Joe and Wewa-
hitchka with decreases.
Ward Ridge was the only
incorporated city in the
county to show an increase
from the census count.
The final report, shows
Gulf County with an in-
crease of 355 people in the
last 10 years, growing from
10,096 in 1970 to 10,451 in
1980. The final count of the
1970 census showed less
than 10,000 at the time, but
complaints and located er-
rors by local officials at the
time pointed out the great-
er population. Officials feel
the count is far short this
time around, also.
The final report shows
Gulf County has 927 more
homes in 1980 than were
counted in 1970.
The report shows Port St.
Joe with 88 more homes
than was reported in 1970,
while Wewahitchka shows


140 more homes built in the
10 year period.
For the Port St. Joe
division, which includes all
of south Gulf County, there
were 2,949 homes in the
area in 1980 and 2,501 in
1970. The Wewahitchka div-
ision (north Gulf) there
were 1,773 homes in the
1980 count and 1,294 in 1970.
Port St. Joe was said to
have lost population in the
10 years between census
counts. In 1970, the count
showed Port St. Joe with a
population of 4,401. In 1980,
the count turned up only
3,981.
Wewahitchka also lost
population according to the
census report. In 1970,
Wewahitchka was shown to
have had 1,733 in the city
limits. In 1980, it was 1,684.
Ward Ridge, the only
incorporated area, showing
growth by the census
count, had a population
increase from eight in 1970
to 114 in 1980 and a housing
increase from two in 1970 to
31 in 1980.


Bank Makes Promotions


At the annual meeting of the Florida
National Bank at Port St. Joe this month, the
bank's Board of Directors promoted four of
the bank's employees as officers.
All of those promoted are veteran
employees of the local bank.
The new officers, shown above, are, left
to right: Charles Measamer, promoted from
assistant vice-president to vice-president;


Verna L. Burch, from assistant vice-presi-
dent to vice-president; Jean Fortner, from
assistant cashier to assistant vice-president
and Glen W. Williams, from vice-president
and cashier to senior vice-president and
cashier.

The appointments were announced this
week by Ted Cannon, president and chairman
of the board of the local bank.

Why Not

-; The State of Florida and its Department of
s- Natural Resources along- with the Audubon
s Society, the Sierra Club and a Panhandle
Conservation group are in the throes of trying
S to decide whether or not to allow Getty Oil
S. Company to drill a natural gas well in East
Bay in Santa Rosa County.
Last week, the Department of Natural
Resources had reluctantly taken the position
--.:that they were going to recommend to the
ZZ State Cabinet that the permission to drill be
granted only because, according to a
,statement by Elton Gissendaner, director of
: DNR that "If we don't allow Getty to drill, our
E- legal peoplesay this would result in an appeal
i :to the courts and we could end up paying
Getty's legal fees."
Environmentalists oppose the drilling in
S :the bay on the grounds that a 1972 law restricts
E "such activities in estuaries.
Si Neither reason is sufficient for the actions
iE ;:being proposed, we think.
S Granting permission to drill solely on the
g : igrqunds of fear of having to pay Getty's court
S costs s tells ps the DNR isn't too certain on
i grounds for refusal of permission.f they don't
have sufficient grounds to oppose the permit,
theq it should be granted without all of this
Bureaucratic resistance, since it is a well


known fact we need the natural gas.
It is our opinion the ecological groups
should be concerned with ways our natural
resources can be harvested without causing
ecological danger. It is easy enough to protect
merely by leaving the natural resources
where they are undisturbed.
Both groups should read the February
issue of National Geographic magazine.
There is probably not a more ecologically
minded publication anywhere than National
Geographic. They go deep into the cause and
effect of any action on the environment and
use their well printed magazine to defend the
ecology.
In the. February issue, the magazine


devotes 38 pages to telling the story of how oil
and the ecology co-exist in harmony along the
coast of Texas in the sensitive Corpus Christi
and Aransas Pass area.
The article, "Where Oil and Wildlife Mix"
tell the story in pictures and words of how
proper procedures have been taken with a
concentrated petro chemical industry, oil and
gas have mixed with the protection of wildlife
and both are alive and doing well.
As a matter of fact, the area contains one
of the most important nesting places of the
endangered Whooping Crane right. in the
middle of all this industrial activity and the'
cranes as well as industry are both thriving.
The occasional accidents do some damage


to some portions of the wildlife, but the
situation on the Texas coast, with its
safeguards and concern over the ecology have
made permanent damage from such accidents
almost nil.
We are concerned with keeping Florida
the beautiful place it is, with a lush ecology.
We are also interested in the people who live
here having the things they need to live a
comfortable life.
If the DNR and the ecologists have the
welfare of the people in mind just as they have
the welfare of the ecology in mind, we would
suggest they take a page out of the book of
Texas and use some of their methods in
protecting our state and its wildlife.


Proposes Giving Killers Their Choices


Sometimes we think our Legislature takes
some wild steps in passing bills, especially
where the so-called rights of convicted
criminals are concerned.
Our Governor is in the throes right now of
trying to raise-taxes to provide more money
for the enforcement of laws and reduction of
crime in our state as well as to provide more
money for schools and roads. These are his


three main concerns.

If we think our Legislators come up with
some ideas, what do you think of the idea of an
Oklahoma: lawmaker who wants :his state to
adopt 'a bill which would give death row
convicts the option of being executed in the
same method they killed their victims or in the
prescribed method of executing criminals


adopted by the state, Oklahoma now executes
its death row criminals with an injection.

The only problem with the new law and its
planned deterrent to crime is that it would
probably work like Oklahoma's injection and
Florida's electric chair. It would be a law on
the books which would seldom be used
anyhow, so why have it?

4 tp after 15 minutes the
t prafessr would stand up and
f tip us. So while in seminary I
learned to deliver a 15 minute
eron under the gun, but I
fo0nf d this to be a liability after
graduation.
Soon after I graduated from
seminary a pulpit committee
contactedd me and flew me
=from Ft. Worth, Texas to a
:town about the size of Port St.
.Jop in east Alabama. I'll not
. -mjntion the name to protect
-the innocent. Upon arrival I
-:was taken some forty miles
:-from the airport to this very
fine small town with two
:rather large Baptist churches.
The committee gave me a
._ royal welcome showed me all
--over the town on Saturday
before I preached on Sunday.
After a delicious meal and
hours of fellowship that fol-
lowed, I was looking forward
to Sunday with great expecta-
Stions.
Sunday morning came and
..itwas a beautiful day. I found
,'the people at the church to be


friendly and very gracious.
They shared with me their
great plans for growth. They
were eagerly awaiting the
calling of a pastor before they
launched out. What an oppor-
tunity it was for a young man
out of seminary. I was just
thrilled.
The service began as it
usually does in a Baptist
Church. The announcements
were made, the Sunday School
report given, etc.. We sang
some very inspiring 'hymns.-
took up the offering of course,
the choir brought a stirring
number, and it was time to
preach before I knew it. I
looked at my watch and it was
11:25 when they turned the
service over to me. I had been
taught well in seminary by a
man of great wisdom in the
area of preaching. His motto
was stand up, put up and shut
up. I followed his advice to the
letter. I preached straight
from the scripture a message
with an introduction, three
points, a conclusion and then
gave the invitation. We sang
several verses, the people
responded well, we pronounc-
ed the benediction and then I
looked at my watch.
It was 11:45 exactly. I
thought to myself, "Well, the
people will beat the Methodist
to the cafeteria." I thought I
had done well since the most
popular pastor we ever had at
my home church was an


interim who let us out ten
minutes early every Sunday.
The committee met after
the service to consider what to
tell me before I caught the
afternoon flight back to Ft.
Worth, Texas. I estimated that
either way it went wouldn't
take long. We had gotten to
know.each other really well.
Two hours later the chairman
came out with a rather
somber look on his face. He
very seriously looked at me
straight in thee ye and- said,
"Preacher, we liked your
message and we.like you, But
we don't want to pursue it any
further because, frankly, your
sermon was too short. You
see, it's like wanting a Big
Mac hamburger and only
getting one of those little
Krystals instead." I stood
there dum-founded. Seminary
had never prepared me for
anything like this. I was in
shock for a few minutes and
then I did the only thing I
could do. I laughed, and said,
"Yes, but they both have real
meat don't they?"
I've never been the same
since. No more Krystals just
Big Mac's ever since. How big
is your appetite is the ques-
tion? Be honest Wesley,
wouldn't you rather have a big
Mac than a Krystal? Please
don't blame the seminaries for
long 'messages. It isn't their
fault.

In other words, he didn't care that

his chest was bare or hairy. He was
intent on doing his thing, exercising his

more reserved citizens might think of
his attire, or lack of it.


Working my way up Monument, I
saw the same thing again! It's getting
terrible, going about our streets. Nudity
everywhere.
There, within sight of the Methodist

Is there no end to our shame?

SUBSCRIPTIONS INVARIABLY PAYABLE IN ADVANCE


MARGARET THATCHER CAME
to see us last week. The Prime Minister
of England came to the United States on
a slumming tour and spent her time in
Washington with President Reagan.
It's curious to note that all the time
Jimmy Carter was in the White House,
Margaret stayed at home. She took
care of her deficit and allowed Jimmy
to look over ours.
Margaret said she expressly came
to the United States to offer her pledge
of support to President Reagan's
austerity program, which is designed to
cure our inflation and bring back the
old saw, "sound as a dollar" and make
it mean something.
Margaret is the originator of the
austerity program in her own England,
where their inflation, budget deficits
and give-away programs set the
pattern for the rest of the world to
follow for many years. After it came to
the point where Britian was faced with
having a giant garage sale on the banks
of the Thames to bail out the Chancellor
of the Exchequer, she changed things.
I think we are going to have this

FROM THE SIGNS I see, Spring
has come to Gulf County.
It's probably too late for you to see
them now, but late last week, Dr.
Wayne Hendrix' pear trees outside his
office, I. C. Lupton's peach tree behind
his house on Eighth Street and the
redbuds on Monument Avenue told us
all that it was time for Spring.
The warm days and cool nights
underlined the claim, making this
definitely the best time of the year.

Last Round of Tax Hearings
0 I


ordered:
Last year, the City levied
4.87 mills of property taxes.
This year's proposal calls for
a mill rate of 5.24, for the first


mill increase in several years.
The new budget is 7.73
percent over last year's bud-
get, but the mechanics of the
new taxing picture under the


Water Systems


average water bill for both
communities would probably
run about $18.00 a month.
The hearings are not for the
purpose of telling the people
the system will be built. The
hearings are to tell the people
of the cost and responsibilities
involved and get a feeling as to
whether the people want the.
system or not. If they say they
do, the County will proceed


with the project. If they say
they do not want it, the
program will stop where it is.
Since these are the meetings
which will decide whether or
not the county proceeds with
plans for construction, all
citizens in the two areas are
urged to be present at the
meetings to express their
feelings after the program is
presented to them.


state's new Trim bill makes it
appear larger. The 7.73 in-
crease is in tax dollars collect-
ed.
The Trim bill calls for
roll-back in millage by the
same percentage of property
valuation increases. The
City's roll-back rate was set at
4.3 mills, which inflates the
mill increase for the new
budget to 21.3 percent on
paper.
The City is exercising econ-
omies by cutting services in
the new budget. The cut in
services is represented in a
decision by the Commission to
eliminate three positions in
the budget which are present-
ly vacant.
Brown, who Opposed the


percentage of increase, still
offered the Commission praise
for their operation of the City
and its finances. "I think this
is the best run little city
anywhere in the nation",
Brown remarked.
He also still insisted he felt
the City could operate just as
well on a 12.5 percent increase
in the budget.
Mayor Frank Pate told
Brown he was probably right,
but one reason the City had
run as well as it had was
because the Commission had
taken precautions to meet any
contingency which might
come up during the year and
any cut of the proposed budget
could very well put the City in
jeopardy during the year, with
prices rising as they are.


Area Sheriffs Organize



*Efforts to Fight Criminals


Sheriff Ken Murphy met
earlier this week with sheriffs
of northwest Florida extend-
ing from Pensacola to Talla-
hassee, in a closed session,
to set in motion actions that
, will broaden and strengthen
the scope of law enforcement
for Gulf County. Thirteen
sheriffs with their assistants
participated in the meeting
which was held at a location
on the Gulf Coast near Fort


Walton Beach.
A major objective set for
group effort will be the
development of practical
means for pooling equipment,
manpower and intelligence'
information to combat the -
deep and complex drug traffic,
operations of organized crime
that pervade coastal and
inland areas of northwest
Florida.
According to Sheriff


Murphy, "Most of the time
when drug traffic operations
occur, the crew members
alone receive more money
than most of the Sheriff de-
partment's entire budget. We
just don't have the money,
manpower or equipment to
even slow down the importa-
tion,of drugs. We've got to
band together as a group of
law enforcement officers, and
F think getting together with


the other agencies is a must,
and cooperation is essential."
Meetings to be held period-
ically will foster exchange of
law enforcement experiences
and ideas generated by the
sheriff's departments of the
respective counties. Input for
solving crimes will be in-
creased by arrangements for
greater utilization of intra-
county law enforcement com-
munications systems.

skyrocketed by 24.6 percent
and rising costs were felt in
many areas of the company's
operations.
Up, too, were the costs of
financing a growing con-
struction program. In 1980, the
company spent nearly $317-
million on new facilities an
increase of $124-million over
the year before.
In conservation, the report
spells our benefits to all
concerned. Faced with high
monthly bills, customers.will
save money by following the
many guidelines available for
conservation of electricity. By
not having to pay the financ-
ing cost for new generation
and transmission facilities,
the company will, in turn,
save money.
To help make these pro-
grams successful, the com-
pany has organized a new
conservation department
whose responsibility it will be
to 'put the programs into
operation and to educate
customers as to the advant-
ages of saving energy. -
The conservation programs
will not all be directed toward
the consumer. The annual
report points to a number of
steps already taken by the
utility to assure the mist
economic operation of facli-
ties and toothers which will be
inaugurated in the future. Oie
savings of significance is the
utilization of an "Energy
Broker" a computerized
matchup of generating costs
from all Florida utilities
allows each to buy power from
another when a neighbor's
generating costs are lower.
The "Broker" saved more
than $10-million for Florida
Power customers during 1980.

Thankful For
by Vera Burge
"What have I to be thankful
for"
SI have a roof that covers me,
a bed in which to sleep at
night,
food to fill our table,
so every thing seems alright.
When trouble comes to mock
me.
I have friends that stand by
true.
Some have never failed me
in the trials I'm going through.
What have I to be thankful
for?
Why, God smiles on me each
day,
He sends the birds to sing so
sweet
and to light my weary way..
I have His promise to comfort
me.
I hear children laugh at play.
I've friends and babies near
and dear,
And the sun shines bright
today.
Sometimes the load grows
heavy,
Too steep and rough the way,
but God is there to comfort
me,
And listen when'I pray.
So what have I to be thankful
for?
Many, many things you see.
The world abounds with
everything,
That God has granted me.

Joggers often bring about
their own demise said the
Florida Highway Patrol re-
cently.
"We understand that there
are insufficient joggers' paths
just as there are not enough
bicycle trails," said Colonel
Eldrige Beach, Patrol Di-
rector. "But common sense
would keep down deaths of
used by everyone."
Preliminary figures show
that there were 675 pedes-
trians, which includes jog-
gers, killed in traffic crashes
in 1980. The same period in
1979 had 630 deaths.
The final count of those
injured during the calender
year and died within 90 days
after the end of the year are
added to the totals. This
usually adds about 25 to the
overall yearly total. If this
,holds true for 1980, there will
have been 700 pedestrians
killed in Florida for 1980."
"No one is going to stand in
the path of a stampeding
elephant but many think no-
thing of impeding the progress
of an automobile, and the
consequences are about the
same," said Beach.
"When joggers, pedestrians
or bicyclists challenge a
moving motor vehicle for the
right of way, there is usually
no doubt who will win and it


is not the 175 pound un-
protected individual. Joggers
should not run after dark,
should always wear bright
clothing and always run
against traffic when in the
raodway," concluded Beach.

Last week in his first speech
before the Congress, President
Reagan outlined his plan to
reinvigorate the American
economy. His proposal calls
for $41.4 billion in federal
expenditure cuts plus tax
reductions to businesses and
Individual taxpayers,
S The front line items of the
Reagan plan. include: three
years of 10% tax cuts for in-
dividual taxpayers (the Kemp-
Roth Plan) and quicker
depreciation write-offs for
businesses; the elimination of
an estimated 43,000 federal
jobs by attrition this year, with
19,000 more job cuts in 1982.
Furthermore, President
Reagan proposes to eliminate
waste in such programs as
Medicaid, food stamps and
housing aid, and design
tougher unemployment com-
pensation standards.
Our District will not be im-
mune to the effects of these
cuts. For instance, "impact
aid," which helps to offset the
costs of educating military
dependents by local school
districts may incur reductions.
These reductions could con-
ceivably call for higher local
taxes by school districts serving
our military facilities. Also,
President Reagan's proposal
for smaller pay raises for
federal employees envisions
changes in the cost-of-living
adjustments.
Reductions in the food
stamp program by $1.8 billion
will be achieved in part by
limiting food stamps if a child
gets free school lunches. At the
same time, the school lunch
and related child feeding pro-
grams would be cut from $3.9
billion to $2.3 billion by
eliminating lunch subsidies for
students of moderate income
families for example, a
family of four with income of
more than $15,630.
More than 45 elementary
and secondary education grant
programs totaling $6 billion
would be consolidated into twb
block grarit programs with a
$1.5 billion cut in budget
authority. Similar consolida-
tion of 40 social services,
health and welfare programs


would cut 1982 outlays from
$9.3 billion to $6.8 billion.
Federal grants for develop-
ment of synthetic fuels, which
was passed last Congress,
would be eliminated under
President Reagan's plan. This
cut will face stiff opposition in
the Coiigress because of iti
contribution to our energy
independence. Coupled with
the recent decontrol measures,
the synthetic fuels program
could possibly free our nation
from' the daily whims of
OPEC.
Now that President Reagan
has finalized his plan to cut
federal expenditures and
reduce the burden to individual
taxpayers, the difficult job of
evaluating and legislating these
cuts will begin: There is a
general consensus on the part
of Congress in support of the
programs Reagan introduced
last week. Subsequently,' I
hope that we in Congress and
President Reagan will be able
to put together a package that
will equitably distribute the
burden of.economic recovery
to us all.

by Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
If you intend to have a
garden this spring, you should
be taking care of pre-planting
preparations right now. After
you've chosen a good garden
site, a spot with full sunlight
all day, or for as much of the
day as possible; and, when
you've decided which varie-
ties of vegetables you'll want
to plant, you need to fake
paper and pencil and actually
make a detailed scale dia-
gram of your garden.
Try to plant your garden so
crops will be close together.
By setting up different groups,
or blocks, according to plant-
ing and maturity dates, you'll
be able to keep your whole
garden in production as much
as possible.
Within each garden block,
arrange crop by plant size.
Put the low growing vege-
tables together. Example:
Beets, mustard and collards
should be along one side of the
garden. Vegetables that reach
medium height. Example:
peppers, squash, bushbeans
should be placed in the middle
of the garden and, put tall
growing vegetables like
sweetcorn, pole beans and
tomatoes along the other
side. By doing this, you avoid
having the low growing vege-
tables shaded by taller crops.
.Run the rows north and south,
so that each row will receive
the same amount of sun.
Don't plant too much of one
crop;9 a time, especially
those vegetable that must be
eaten fresh, because they
won't store well. To have fresh
vegetables over a long period
of time, plant smaller
amounts of the same crop at 10
to 14 day intervals. This is an
especially good practice with
crops that have short periods
of peak quality example,
beans, sweetcorn and peas.
You might also prolong the
season for a crop by planting
two' or more varieties that
have maturity dates.
Be sure you plant sweet

CONSTANT

ADVERTISING

One step won't take you very far,
You've got to keep on walking.

One word won't tell 'em who you are
You've got to keep on talking.

An inch won't make you very tall.
You've got to keep on growing.

Onee little ad won't do it all,
You've got to keep them going.


A constant drop of water
Wears away the hardest stone;

By constant gnawin', Towser
Masticates the toughest bone.

The constant, cooing lover
Carries off the blushing maid.

And the constant advertiser
Is the one who gets the trade!

Make us prove it.
