Costing Honored Run Again


by Democrats

Cecil Costin, Jr., was presented with a plaque of
appreciation Saturday night, by the Gulf County
Democratic Committee in a meeting held at the St. Joseph
Bay Country Club. About 100 friends and business
associates were in attendance' with the Democratic
Committee, to pay honor to Costin who has served as
chairman and member of the committee for more than 20
years. Costin did not seek re-election to the committee this
year and was replaced by Charles Brock from Precinct 11,
from a field of three candidates.
. The plaque of appreciation was presented to Costin by
Lieutenant Governor Wayne Mixson, a brother-in-law of
Costin.
Lt. Gov. Mixson spoke briefly to the guests resent,
saying he felt the Democrats had done a good job of running
Florida, its cities and its counties. He said Florida is setting
the pace for the nation in employment, crime prevention,
growth, low taxes and the best business climate in the
nation.
Mixson predicted there will be 17 million people in
Florida by the year 2,000. "This is equivalent to the
populations of Florida today, Georgia and Alabama" he
pointed out.
As his last act with the Democratic Committee, Costin
gave the oath of office to the new officers for the coming
year. Supervisor of Elections, Cora Sue Robinson,
presented election certificates to the newly elected
members.

Rabid 'Coon

Killed In Oak Grove
A wild racoon, killed in the Oak Grove area two
weeks ago, today, has been determined to have been
infected with rabies, according to Doug Kent,
Environmental Health Director for the Gulf Count'
Health Department.
Kent said the raccoon attacked a dog, owned b',
Bob Raffield on Iola Street two weeks ago and the
animal had to be killed to stop his attack. Dr. Tim
Nelson advised shipping the head from the raccoon to
the State Department of Health for testing. Results
were determined the end of last week that the animal
was rabid.
Kent said, "This tells me that if we have one rabid
raccoon in the woods around here, we have some more
likely to be'or infected, roaming loose." Kent advised
parents to warn their children about approaching wild
animals and have their pets vaccinated and penned up
for a period of time to see4.f any more rabid animals
turn up.
. 'tAnaanimal can be infected for atleast six months- -
before any signs appear", Kent said& He recommended
Caution with all animals since the raccoon was found to
hbe rabid.
Kent said the dog which was attacked has since
been destroyed, also, because of the rabid attack.

AUGUSTA, GEORGIA -

Down


But Not


Out

I worry about a lot of
things. I wish I could say that
nothing bothers me but it
would be a lie. My lips could
tell a lie but my heart would
know. There are many things
that bother me and I worry
about them.
One thing that bothers me
is wondering if you like this
column. I would like to say
that I write it just for the fun
.of it but that would not be the
truth. I write it because I like
you and I hope that it will
enlighten your life in some
way. And, who knows, you
may remember me in your
will. Stranger things have
happened.
The thing that really both-
ers me these days is finan-
ces. It's costing more and
more to live these days. To
say that I'm not making
enough to keep up is an
understatement. If I were
making enough, however, I
would need a substantial
raise each month. And five
percent wouldn't touch it.
This point was brought
home like William, Tell's
*arrow through the apple last
'.Monday morning. The lIds
'were busily scuffling around
getting ready for school. I
Shad cashed a check for fifty
dollars at the golf course
Sunday afternoon so I would
have plenty of money for
lunches and other odds and
ends.
I was sitting at the dining
table when my youngest son
came in and asked for his
lunch money. I neatly tucked
six dollars into an envelope
and handed it to him (one
dollar a day for lunch and
twenty cents a' day for
snacks). "Daddy," he said,
"I need moneyfor my school
pictures."
"How much?." I asked.
"Three dollars and fifty
cents," he replied, "and I
need money for the books I

Shucks, that was only the
third wedding I'd ever been
to in my whole life (well up
to this point of it anyway)
and I didn't even want to go
to the first two. That's why
last week I could only give'

however, some great ideas

because this week, thank you
chief, I have been sent all the
way across Georgia to some
town I've never heard of to

ment called the Masters. I
know less about golf than I

Master was the name of a
new TV show in which the
leading men don't carry

the bad guys.

them shoot some golfs this

white golfs, but there were a
few orange golfs and I even
saw one light green golf.

I'll be honest with you - I

-Houdini Doesn't Realize He Has Been


OUR RESIDENT TOMCAT, Hou-
,dini, doesn't realized he has been
"manipulated" by the veterinarian.
Some few years ago, Houdini kept
disappearing for a few days (and
nights) at a time and he wouldcome
. home all battered, bruised, cut up and
wounded. He didn't even come home
-to eat until his adventure was over
,.-and he would have to limp, crawl or
:'drag himself home with one or two
.paWs which still would function.
I Houdini was off "having fun", I
--suppose he would call it. He came
-home more dead than alive on more
"than one occasion; still, just as soon
'as he was able to go again- here he
went.
So, one fine day, halfway between
recovery and another nocturnal
foray, Houdini was bundled up and
taken to the doctor, whereupon the
S doctor was instructed to curtail his
JMrocreative powers.
The doctor did.
Even yet, on occasion, Houdini
"still gets the urge or the inclination or
,the call of nature. Whichever power it
_,is which stirs him, Houdini still takes
off, although not near as often and


with not nearly so serious an
aftermath as his trips prior to the
operation.

He is more attentive to meal time and
he is more attentive to taking care of
the dog and the outside mama cat
than he was ever before. He catches
more chameleons, more birds, stalks
a squirrel or two every now and then.
His habits have more or less become
sedentary and Houdini lives the life of
the semi-retired or semi-tired.
If I had to describe Houdini on
human terms, I'd say he was on Social

The other night, I was getting
back to the house after about a mile
walk, when I heard the unmistakable
sound of cats yowling when I

Houdini has "His place" which
provides him security and every time
the electric can opener turns on within
his earshot, he expects a meal.

EVEN WITH ALL this security,
Houdini still has a flash of his former
life to come along every once in a
while, and he reverts to the neighbor-

approached the house in the dark.
"Could it be", I thought, "Another
tom cat has come to call on our
outside mama cat?" Kitsy just
presented us with four grey kittens
last week and is hardly in any
condition to romance with visiting
tom cats already (I hope). But the
sounds were unmistakable.
As I drew nearer to the house, I
could tell the noises were coming from


the front porch and I decided to
investigate this matter and dispatch
one tom cat if he was making indecent
proposals to our outside mama cat.
. As I approached the porch, there
was Houdini, all hunkered down with
fangs bared, back arched and tail all
fluffed out. The noise was coming
from Houdini. He had a large yellow
tom cat backed in a corner of the
porch, who looked all the world like a
40 mile per hour wind was blowing in
his face. Considering Houdini's age
and condition, that's about what it
was, too-all wind!
Still, Houdini was reading the riot
act to the yellow tom.
"You stay away from my kids and
my woman", he was telling the yellow
tom. "If I catch you back here, I'll
claw your eyes out and give you an
operation like the doctor gave me one
day several years ago!"
I mean, Houdini was telling that
yellow tom off. From appearances,
the yellow tom cat was believing him,
too.
I didn't interfere. I let Houdini


take care of that matter and I climbed 4g
in the car and went to watch
grandsons play baseball.
When I returned home, Houdini
had everything all quiet on the home
front once again. The next morning,
he was lying on the window ledge, in
the sun, with the self-satisfied look of
a frontiersman who has just beaten off
an Indian attack.
Once more, it was Houdini's turf
and nobody or no cat had better trod
on it.
HOUDINI WAS protective of that
piece of ground because he thinks the
outside mama cat's kittens belong to
him. He knows something is different,
but he still doesn't realize the severity
of his trip to the vet some four or five
years ago.
If I can be real quick and snatch
our outside mama cat up on that one
day between the weaning of the
present bunch of kittens and the next
visit from the neighborhood yellow
tom cat, she's going to make that visit
to the vet for similar treatment.
Then Houdini can really take
things easy.

This will be easy, I thought
as my oldest son walked in.
All he's going to need is his
lunch money.
"Thanks, Dad," he said as
I handed him a five dollar,
bill, "but could I get my
allowance for the past two
weeks?" Ten more added to
the five makes fifteen, plus
the $26.40 makes a grand
total of $41.40. At least-I
would have some pocket
change.

"Sixty dollars."
"Sixty dollars," I said,

some guys in white coveralls
and tennis shoes to tote the
bags) and they'd wind up
with the aforementioned
club and whack the day
lights out of that golf. I mean
they would shoot that little
golf out across this cow pas-
ture that didn't have no cows
in it, and then the feller he
was a'playing with would
knock his golf off that little-
white stick and off they'd
both go, chasing them golfs.
They find them out in the
middle of that cow pasture
and hit 'em again. Well, I'm
pretty quick on the. uptake
and it didn't take long for me,
to see what it was that they
were a'doing cause they kept
a whacking and a slashing at
them golf till they got 'em to
a part of that pasture that
the cows had eaten down
real close. And then they'd
roll that golf along the short
grass till it dropped into a
hole somebody had dug in
the ground. Just as soon as
that golf disappeared into
the hole everybody standing
around watching would
break out into a big cheer
and shout "good shot", "way

growed up around Augusta
'cause everybody was a'pull-
ing for him to win. Well just
as soon as that golf .went into
the hole they'd take it right
back out and go over to
another part of the pasture
and start all over again. And
that's about it. Don't. seem
like nothing to get excited
about, does it? But, boy
howdy, don't tell any of those
35,000 or so people that was
there it- wasn't much to it
cause they loved it. ',They
cheered and clapped and
hollered "Go get'em Jack"
all weekend long, and seem-
ed to love every minute of it.
As for myelf, I got tired of
standing and watching those
men hit that little golf all day
so I went looking for the
cows.
They called,/thiis pasture
the Augusta National Golf
Club and that was O.K. by
me; but they had a guy nam-
ed Tsuneyuki Nakajima
playing and that sounds
more international to me.
They also had Greg Norman
and David Graham who
were from Australia, Ber-
nard Langer from West Ger-
many and a very nice man
named Gary Player from
South Africa. I know he was
a nice man because as he
was a'walking through the
crowd I saw him give one of
his golfs to a young boy and
that little gesture spoke
volumes for Mr. Player. I
wish I could have seen one of
those golfs up close - they
wa, though little' rascals
cause they hit 'em all day
and they never busted.
(They didn't burst either). I
guess it was a national golf
club with an international
flavor. At least an American
(Ben Crenshaw) won it.,
I tell you one thing it was
the absolute most beautiful
cow pasture I have ever
seen. Somebody had taken
great pains and tons of ferti-
lizer to have it looking so
good and I'm a guy that can
appreciate a good looking
cow pasture. I can't figure
out what'they had done with
the cows. Maybe they sent
them down to Macon for the
weekend.
Man, these golfers were
serious about the game.
They didn't smile or look
around much - they just
shot golf. They worked hard
at it and when I found out the
winner got $108,000.00 I
realized why they were so
serious. It wasn't a game
with them. It was a business.
The exception to the above
was a guy named Lee
Trevino. He came into the
cow pasture a'talking and
being friendly with everyone
and left the same way. He
enjoyed the crowd and they
appreciated him. He actual-
ly realized these people had
come for miles to see these
"big names" shoot some golf
and he was willing to give a
little of himself to the folks.
And here's the real tip off on
old Lee. Saturday he played
terrible golf and nothing
went right. He treated the
people watching the same
both days. Now you may not
know anymore about golf
than I do, but we can all
learn a lesson from Lee
Trevino.
Respectfully,
Kes

with the concrete and steel
structure under the current
permit. "If you change the

BIDDING
Bidding on various pro-
jects took up the major
portion of the meeting Tues-
day' night. Bids were receiv-
ed on -drilling monitoring
wells in the vicinity .of the
Wastewater Treatment
Plant. Only one bid was
received from Ardaman As-
sociates of Tallahassee, who
bid a price from $10,080 to
$12,195. The uncertain price
was necessary because of the
uncertainty about how deep
the wells will have to be to
test the strata of water
required by the Department
of Environmental Regula-
tion.
Taflinger Painting Com-
pany was the successful
bidder for cleaning and put-
ting two coats of masonry
paint on the inside walls of
the Centennial Building. Taf-
linger bid $2896.00 for the job.
Nathan Peters, Jr., asked
the Commission to consider
purchasing aluminum blea-
chers for the Dixie Youth
baseball fields, as some of
the present wooden bleach-
ers were rotting.
Peters was told the City
had already taken steps
toward this goal and have


sent out requests for quota-
tions for the bleachers to
present the information to
the Commission.
Commissioner Bill Flem-
ing said he and public works
superintendent Dorton Had-
den had tested all the blea-
chers prior to the baseball
season starting and they had
seemed to be all right.


A bleacher seat broke last
week, but fortunately nobody
was hurt in the accident.
Hadden said the bleacher
seat appeared to be sound on
the outside but had some
.rotten spots in the interior of
the board.

Reva Lane Receives Highest

41 Girl Scout Award


, The Girl Scout Council of
the Apalachee Bend has
recently presented the high-
est award an adult can
receive to Mrs. Reva Lane.
She is the first person in Gulf
County to receive this presti-
gious award.
The Thanks Badge, award-
ed only once or twice a year
by the Couricil, has been in
existence since 1912, the year
Girl Scouting began in the
United States. It is given
.upon recommendation of a
person's fellow leaders and
an upper level committee.


Scout Day Camp in 1981. She
also served in the capacity of
camping organizer for neigh-
borhood camp outs.


The ceremony was held at
her home in Port St. Joe
Sunday, April 8. The award
was presented by Mrs. Bun-


Mrs. Lane began her ca-
reer in Scouting in 1974 as a
Brownie leader. As her
daughter Hope advanced, so
did Reva. She was a Junior
leader for three years, a
Cadette leader for three
years, then a Senior leader.
Active through 1982 as a
leader, she was also Chair-
man of the Wetappo Unit
Neighborhood from 1976-
1982. She is a troop organizer,
a trainer for Scouter-Outer,
Basic Leader and First Aid.
She was also the first direc-
tor of Gulf County's first Girl


1952 Was An


Exciting Year


The year of 1952 was an
exciting year for Port St. Joe,
according to headlines read
from the files of The Star
published in that year. Billy
Joe Rish outlined some of the
news events of '52 to the
. Kiwanis Club Tuesday.
Some of the outstanding
:"events of the day showed a
great many changes in the
City's business and social life
Which had lasting effects on
.the City and County.
It was in 1952 when home
'delivery was first instituted
i bX the Post Office. The St.'
Joe Paper Company started
, work on its fresh water
-supply canal from the Chi-
,pola River to the paper
company mill here in Port St.
i'Joe.
Government budgets for
1952 were a far cry from the
budgets of today, but still
;drew intense objections from
Sthe ones who had to pay the
taxes to support the budgets.
In 1952, the School Board had
a budget of $400,000; today,
it's nearer $4 million. The
County budget was published
at $286,000 in 1952: today the
!same budget is approximate-
ly $2.5 million. The City of
Port St. Joe had an operating
budget of $142,000 in 1952.
Today's budget, in three
parts, is about $850,000 for
operations; $2.5 million for
F.te Wastewater Treta e
SPlant and in the ei~ghor-e
hood of $560,00 for the Water
and Sewer Department.

BIFOCAL
CONTACT LENSES
Bifocal contact lenses have
improved substantially, but
they are still not for every-
body:
There are several ways of
fitting soft contact lenses for
a patient who needs both
distance and near correc-
tion. The procedure to be fol-
lowed is determined in con-
sultation with your optome-
trist. Two of the most. com-
mon methods:
1. One eye is fit with a soft
contact lens for near vi-
sion; the other eye is fit
with a soft contact lens for
distance vision. The pa-
tient learns to use each
eye separately for dif-
ferept visual distances.
2. There are now several
types of soft bifocal con-
tact lenses. One type uses
tocpqncentric circles; t
Mn" circle is for distance
vision; the outer circle is
for reading. Another type
is similar to the no-line bi-
focal eyeglass. The dis-'
tance and near zones
blend together.
The greatest difficulty with
bifocal contact lenses is
learning to use the small,
distinct spheres of correc-
tion for seeing. At present, it
is estimated that only about
25 percent of patients, who
wear traditional bifocals will
adjust to soft contact lens
bifocals. But you may be one
of them. Discuss this with,
your optometrist.

Flat Sentencing Law Is

Explained by Appleman


Postal employees presented him with a
quartz clock last week on his last day here.
Shown with Sapp, center, are Johnny Linton
and Jean Stebel, postal workers.

Jim Appleman, State's At-
torney for the 14th Circuit,
explained some of the pitfalls
and some of the conveniences
of the new flat sentence law
which was recently adopted
by the Florida Legislature.
On the plus side, the law
calls for uniform sentences
throughout the state. "If a
person is convicted of a
second class felony in Gulf
County and another person is
convicted in Dade County,
both will do the same amount
of time in prison", Appleman
said
The prison terms are "de-
cided on a point system"
Appleman said. If a person
has been arrested before, he
gets points for it If his crime
is with force, more points are
added The degree of the
crime as established under
the program adds or detracts

points. When the points are
added up, the sentence is
determined by a table pre-
pared by the framers of the
system.
The liabilities of the sys-
tem are mostly that crimes
which are considered very
serious in the Panhandle are
not considered as seriously in
South Florida, and do not
carry the point weight they
might if the law were drawn
up according to Panhandle
thinking..
Drugs and drug dealing are
one of the specific areas in
which Appleman said the
penalties are too light. A


person can make a tremen-
dous amount of money in a
day or two of drug dealing
and do less than a year of
prison time, if he is caught
and convicted. "This isn't
right", Appleman said. He
pointed out other inconsis-
tencies with Panhandle
thinking, saying the law still
needs some refining.
One good thing about the
law, according to Appleman,
is that, if a person runs up the
points in his life-style or in
the commission of a crime,
he will go to jail if he is
convicted.

diameter larger than six
inches, use five lbs. of 8-8-8
fertilizer for each inch of
diameter. Very small trees
can be fertilized the same as
shrubs.
Palm trees can be ferti-
lized with either an 8-8-8 or
10-10-10 mixture. Apply the
fertilizer at the rate of one lb.
for each inch of the trunk
diameter. If your palm is so
small that it doesn't have a
woody trunk yet, apply from
two to eight ounces of fertili-
zer. The mixture can be
broadcast under the palm's
canopy.
In addition to the fertilizers
we've mentioned, which pro-
vide the major plant nutri-
ents, all landscape plants can
benefit from an application
of a minor element mixture.
* Many of the all-purpose
fertilizers already contain
the minor elements. If not,
you'll need to add them. You
can do this by using all-
purpose minor element mix,
such as "perk" or you can
add the individual elements
that are needed. These usual-
ly include magnesium sul-
fate, sulfur, and iron sulfate.
The all-purpose mixes are
more convenient to use, 'but
they also are more expen-
sive. Whatever method you
choose for adding minor
elements, always follow the
manufacturer's recommend-
ed rates of application.
Since iron deficiency is a
very common problem in
Florida, you may want to
include a chelated (key-late-
ed) iron in your spring
fertilizer program. Mix one
ounce of 12 percent chelated
'iron in 25 gallons of water.
This will clear up an iron
deficiency in 100 sq. ft. of
your landscape.
It's quite common in Flori-
da for the soil pH to be too
high, causing the minor
elements- to be tied up in
forms that are unavailable to
plants. Sulfur or iron sulfate
can be used to lower the pH of
alkaline soils. For recom-
mendations on the use of
such materials, check with
your garden center or County
Extension Office.

Lawn and garden activities
intensify with the arrival of
spring. One of the essential
jobs is the proper application
of fertilizer, the right kinds,
and amounts of fertilizer for
the various types of plants in
your landscape. Individual
requirements do vary.
The only way you can
fertilize plants properly is to
know about the different
kinds of fertilizers that. are
available, and which ones
are needed by your particu-
lar ornamental plants. Most
:of our landscapes contain an
assortment of trees, palms,
shrubs, and hedges. Today,
-"'wll discuss-the- different
fertilizers which are needed
to keep all of these plants
healthy and attractive.. My
information was provided by
Extension Urban Horticul-
ture specialist Dr. Robert
Black.
The first landscape plants-
we'll talk about are shrubs.
Shrubs should be given an
all-purpose garden fertilizer,
such as an 8-8-8 or 10-10-10.
Apply the fertilizer at the
rate of one-and-a-half to
three lbs. per 100 sq. ft. For
hedges, the fertilizer should
be spread evenly along each
side of the plants for other
shrubs, simply broadcast it
over the entire area.
Our next group .of plants
includes landscape trees and

DOT Protecting Endangered Flower on Road 65


The Florida Department of
Transportation (DOT) is
busy these days laying a new
Slayer of clean, black asphalt
on State Road 65 as it knifes
through the forest starting
north of Bucks Siding in
Franklin County and exits
,.-- -south of Telogia in Liberty
County.
The resurfacing and widen-
ing project is not unlike

the roadway shoulder.
The plant, Harper's Beauty
(Harperocallis flava), was
first discovered in 1965 and
was catalogued in 1968 by Dr.
Sidney McDaniel.
The Smithsonian Institute
listed Harper's Beauty as
"threatened with extinction"
in 1973 and in 1979 the U. S.
Fish and Wildlife Service of
the Department of the Interi-
or listed the perennial herb
as an endangered species.
As a result, the U. S. Forest
Service designated 45 acres
of forest as a "reserved
area" for the perpetuation of-
the species.
When the DOT targeted
State Road 65 for a widening
and resurfacing project from
U. S. 98 in Franklin County to
the Liberty County line, the
agency was already aware of
the endangered plant's pre-
sence on the DOT right-of-
way.
"We worked with the
Forest Service and the U. S.
Fish and Wildlife Service to
insure that the project would
not have a negative impact
on the Harper's Beauty colo-
ny," said Ron Pscion, the
DOT's Environmental Coor-
dinator for Northwest Flori-
da.
Pscion said that the DOT
modified mowing schedules
to allow the plant to flower
and seed; restricted the use
of herbicides in the vicinity of
the plant populations, and
routinely inspects the area to
monitor the project.
A 1983 report issued by the
U. S. Fish and Wildlife
Service indicated that the

Florida's Farm Loan

Funds Are Increased


Florida's allocation of funds for
direct loans in the economic emergency
farm loan program has been increased
from $170,000 to $3,802,000, State Director
Mitchell N. Drew of the Farmer's Home
Administration (FmHA) has announced.
The increase will be distributed
through State Offices of the FmHA, the
.U. S. Department of Agriculture's farm
credit agency. Nationally, the direct loan
portion of the $600 million economic
emergency program was raised to a $310
million share.
Interest rates for direct loans
obtained from FmHA county offices are
. 10.25 percent on loans made for operating
purposes, and 10.75 percent on loans


made for real estate purposes.
Economic emergency loans are au-
thorized for bona fide farmers and
ranchers who are directly and primarily
engaged in, and expect to continue in,
agricultural production, are unable to get
sufficient credit from their regular
lenders, and need credit to maintain
viable farming operations. FmHA can
loan up to $400,000 to any one borrower
under the economic emergency pro-
gram.
Permitted use of loan funds include
financing of 1984 crop production,
purchasing essential livestock, feed and
equipment, and paying delinquent in-
stallments on farm and real estate debts
if a lender is demanding payment.

Tomato 'Most Grown' of Home Garden Vegetables


BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
The one vegetable that
almost all backyard gar-
deners include in their gar-
den is the tomato. In the past
few weeks we have given
some advice on growing
tomatoes. Today we will add
a few more tips to the list:
Staking and Pruning.
Staking and Pruning are
"Fine Tuning" gardening
techniques. They are not
;absolutely necessary. They
certainly won't make up for
deficiencies in fertilizer, wa-
ter and mulches, or an
inadequate spray program.
But they can. enhance the
quality of the tomatoes, your
plant can produce. I will
cover these procedures in
some detail, explaining how
and why they are done. My
information for this article
was provided by Extension
Vegetable Specialist " Jim
� Stephens of the University of
Florida.
Staking tomato plants as
i they grow will keep the fruit
off the ground, and conserve
space in the garden. Staking
also makes it easier 'to

them three to four inches
from each plant. As the
plants grow, tie .them to the
stakes with string, soft twine,
or . strips of rags. You'll
probably need to make be-
tween four and six ties during
the growing season. Always
be sure you make the ties

cultivate and harvest toma-
toes, and it helps prevent
some fruit rots.
First a few words of
caution about staking: Stak-
ed plants are more subject to
a condition called Blossom-
End Rot than tomatoes which
are allowed to grow natural-
ly. And, you must be careful
to avoid plant root injury
when you drive stakes into,
the ground.
One method of staking,
which seems towork well, is
to use one-by-two wooden
stakes, about six to eight feet
long. Drive these about two
feet into the. soil, keeping


Pruning is the process of
removing the small shoots
that develop between the leaf
stems and main plant stems.
Removing these shoots, or
suckers, reduces the total
number of fruit that your
young tomato plants will
produce. But, it causes the
fruit that are produced to.be


larger. .
Tomatoes should be pruned
about once a week. It's best
to prune by hand, holding a
shoot firmly between your
thumb and forefinger. Bend
it to one side in the opposite
direction. .Reversing'the di-
rection is necessary to pre-
vent injury to the leaf axil or

the main stem.
When you prune, leave two
or three main stems for plant
development. Be careful not
to disturb the fruit buds,
which appear just above, or
just below, the point where
the leaves are attached to the
leaf stem.
Staking and pruning are

THE GREAT TIDE

The Great Tide is a roman-
tic historical novel of a
fabulous era in Floria
which tells the story, of a
boom-town Gulf port, plan-
tation life in Florida's fabu-
lous West Coast in the
1830's and 1840's, and the
back ground of a beautiful
head strong Caroline
Nicholas Green Chohran
who dominated the lives of
three men in the city of St.
Joseph. Stronger than any
other among its dramatic
characters, is Caroline her-
self, a great lady in setting
of political duel, and
brawls, a schemer for pos-
session and luxury. The
Great Tide will sweep you
