LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

Sister Counties


5


(D


Manatee and Sarasota Counties used to be one county. Both
areas have about the same problems. Basically they have about
the same natural assets. They both have highly attractive win-
ter weather. This will always bring winter visitors in very large
numbers. It will also attract ever increasing numbers bf new
settlers who don't like a cold climate.
These things assure the counties of an ever accelerating rate
of growth, and a large source of outside revenue which is sure
of increasing at a faster and faster rate as the years and the
centuries go by.
There are two reasons for a continuous acceleration of growth.
For one thing, every improvement or extension of public facil-
ities will attract a new section of people who like everything
about us except maybe something like our little libraries, or
maybe our shallow channels. There are dozens and dozens of
these things where we haven't progressed quite to the point
where people with such requirements would come right in as
vacationers or home owners.
The other improvement that will bring more and more people
is airplanes. There are many residents here today, and even
more visitors, who just couldn't be here if the fastest way to
New York or Chicago were 24 hours or so, as it was beforel930.
Before long it will be two to three hours, and then it will
drop to one hour or so on down to a point where everybody in
the nation will be only a few minutes away. Stop and think.
There is a large airliner on the drawing boards today whichwill
cruise at nearly 3,000 miles an hour. It's 1, 100 miles to New
York.
When we are that much closer to 200,000,000 people and
have a few things like a university and enough light industry to
employ our employables, --and if we have been thrifty with our
natural assets for fishing, boating and bathing -- then the coun-
ties will be prosperous enough to pay off the total amount which
should be borrowed now to study, plan, build and conserve for
an earlier future.
The cities are growing together. Soon they willbe one single
cultural and trading area. The counties have planned and
created a better mutual airport. They have tried working to-
gether on many other important projects through the years, but
both Chambers of Commerce and government bodies have fail-
ed to establish a strong precedent for full cooperation.
Isolated attitudes and insulated opinion have largely prevail-
ed. There are unprogressive groups in both counties, and there
are over-progressive groups. 'A new group is needed. There is a
critical requirement for close and informal discussions between
men of clear vision and sound judgment, without commitment
by election, employment or investment to over-localized loyal-
ties.
Every resident of the area is doing less well today because
there was not more cooperation yesterday. Let's do something
today about tomorrow. Let's press now for full cooperation.
What is your opinion?
SAY IT HERE!

More guest editorials have come in for the Open Forum than
were expected. As we had not planned space some will have to
go in the next issue.
It is encouraging that so many are using this opportunity to
have their opinions widely read and discussed. Be sure to write
one soon.
This is truly an open forum. Regardless of our own opinions
we will print just what you write. We believe democracy is
based on unrestricted discussion by the public as well as unre-
stricted voting by the public. Freedom of the press means the
press can say what it wants to the public. It should also mean
that the public should be given the same amount of space to say
what it wants through the press. As far as we are concerned we
will supply a lot more space than that.
If there is free and open public discussion of our problems
maybe more people will take an interest in these problems.
Certainly the Open Mike programs which have become so pop-
ular on radio have done a great deal to stimulate such interest.
Some stations are giving an hour or more a day to these pro-
grams. A small newspaper can't donate an hour or two of read-
ing space, but we will go as far as we can for our size.

LETTERS TO THE El


New Subscriber

July 31, 1959

Key Look-out, Publisher:
Kindly send one year's sub-
scription to the Key Look-out
to my home 1724 South
Drive, Sarasota, Florida for
which I enclose my check for
one dollar.
Thanking you, I am
Very truly yours,

County Togetherness

Key Look-out:
For some time, I have been
receiving the Key Look-out,
an interesting and informative
publication, free of charge.
With the realization that this
institution for the Keys of
Manatee and Sarasota Coun-
ties can continue only if there
is an increase in advertising
and paid circulation, I am
pleased to enclose my check
for $1.00 for a year's subscrip-
tion.
In reading your newspaper,
I find that I am just as inter-
ested in the people and hap-
penings on the Keys in Sara-
sota County as I am in those
of Manatee. You have recog-
nized that the social and
economic interests of Sarasota
and Manatee County cannot
be divided along geographic
lines.
I wish you continued success
for the Key Look-out.
Robert E. Knowles
Bradenton, Florida

The Look-out is much en-
couraged. Geographic divis-
ion cancels economic multi-
plication. An inter-county
group of men of Subscriber
Knowles' thinking could be a
nucleus triggering long-need-
ed fusion of plans and action,
and destruction of childish
jealousies and resentments
indulged in by adult leaders
of both counties. Ed.

The Break-Thru

Key Look-out:
After all our complaints
about not receiving the Look-
out, I am happy to report for
a change that the July 2 issue
came thru to us here in Sche-
nectady O.K. Not only did it
-come, but it came magazine
(or paper) mailing so maybe
this is the start of a new era
by the Post Office. Hope the
flow will continue and that
you will not have to do any
more first class mailing to
reach us.
Dr. A. W. Bailey

This is getting completely
out of hand. There was no

Moving Subscriber
August 1, 1959

Key Look-out:
I enclose check in the
amount of $1.00 for renewal
of my subscription for the Key
Look-out which I enjoy very
much.
I am moving permanently
to Connecticut, and if there is
any extra charge for mailing,
kindly let me know and the
adjustment will be made.
Effective August 15th, please
address me at: DeepwoodPark,
Bethel, Conn.
Thank you.
Cordially,

We follow you in your edi-

FEDDERS
Cools in summer when it's 1100 outdoors
...heats in winter when it's minus 10


Here's the famous Fedders that brought
a new meaning to "air conditioning":
cool, invigorating, mountaid-fresh air
in summer...plus clean, safe reliable
heating in winter. Because this new
Fedders Four Seasons acts as a true
heat pump even in below zero weather,
it requires 40% less electric resistance
heat than other all-weather air condi-
tioners... cost far less to operate in the-
most-common' winter temperature
ranges.


Buy it now...enjoy 12,000 BTU's of
cooling* this summer... 10,000 BTU's
of heating when it's zero outdoors.
That's as much as most central heating
radiators deliver.

Likewise we fly along with

already proven by him to be
the most efficient weapon

Look Out For Huey


July 29, 1959


Key Look-out:


I do want to thank you for
such a nice article about our
cat Huey. Although we have
not recovered him, I'm sure he
too would have been proud of
the description. Of course my
heart is still broken and I look
for him in every bush or every
movement I hear at night.
Maybe I was too fond of him,
the reason he was taken from
me, but I try to say everything
happens for the best. I'm sure
you will be rewarded for your
kind interest.
Yours truly,
Frances Beasley
Longboat Key

Huey ran away on Longboat.

dersides and face. Call Sub-
scriber Beasley at EL 5-6525. -

Bulkhead Line


MANATEE COUNTY The
bulkhead line which County
Bulkhead Committee Chair-
man Wayne Mead and the
other members of the commit-
tee, D. Vincent Wilder, Col.
.Glenn Rceves and George
Gregory, recommended to the
County Commissioners was
rejected when the commission
set the bulkhead line well
off-shore in many places.
Mr. Mead then turned in
his resignation, but the Plan-
ning and Zoning Board appeal-
ed to Mr. Mead to reconsider.
Mr. Mead had this to say a-
bout the Commissioners ap-
parent disregard for his line.
"Before recommending a
bulkhead line to the County
Commissioners, my Commit-
tee took a course at the Uni-
versity of Florida at Gaines-
ville which none of the of com-
missioners attended. We also
had meetings with the Marine
Biological Research Depart-
ment of the State of Florida
which none of the commission-
ers attended. We had very
lengthy and informative hear-
ings which one of the commis -
sioners attended.
"We had frequent meetings
with the trustees of the Inter-
nal Improvement Board, but
the commissioners attended
only one of them. We had a
bulkhead seminar in Manatee
that members of my commit-
tee sat through for.three days
trying to learn how to set a
line that was right, and
through all these meetings
the different authorities said
that public interest was the
most important point of all to
consider. I think the line rec-
ommended by the PZB was in
the public interest and the
line set by the commission
was not. Public interest, as I
understand it, means the way
most people would like to
have it.
"The county commission
did not extend to me or any
of my committee the courtesy
of reviewing the line before
they ran it through. I believe
if the commissioners had at-
tended the same courses my
committee and I did, and if
they gave the line as much
study as we did, they would
have put the bulkhead line
in the same place as we did.
I want everyone in Manatee
County to know I had nothing


to do with any of the changes
of the line set by the PZB and
that I still think our commit-
tee set it in the very best
place."
The commissioners line ex-
tended 1,200 feet out into
Sarasota Bay in front of Bay-
shore Gardens, 550 feet in
front of Emerald Isles on \
Palma Sola Bay and from 50
to 650 feet at Perico Island in
Tampa Bay. A cove will be
filled in front of Sunny Shores
Estates in Palma Sola Bay. In
all 1,400 acres will be filled.
There is much opposition to
the commissioners' decision
and probably more will be
voiced. Mrs. H. D. K. Stan-
ford has united nine civic or-
ganizations totaling 1,683
'members in protest against the
new line. Mrs. Stanford,
speaking for her organization,
says, "We feel as though the
bulkhead law has been ignor-
ed. The public opinion ex-
pressed at the public hearing
was against the new line, ex-
cept for the developers, their
attorneys and the engineers.
The public owns the submerg-
ed land and we dorxot want
to sell. We do not want any
encroachment on open water.
Encroachment into the bay will
choke our economy. We will
send two resolutions to the
:I.I. Board in Tallahassee and
that will be only the begin-
ning. We will organize other
civic organizations into our
alliance. The bulkhead law
is a good one. It should be
preserved not ignored. Why
don't the commissioners real-
'ize that thevbay is the best
thing we have? There is plen-
ty of room elsewhere in the
county for development. They
will reduce the bay to a
channel. Why should the de-
velopers use the sand to fill
the flats when it is perfect
for the beach? Dr. Per Bruun
says, in a letter, that it is.
I think the public is being
misled on the lines. The
commissioners did not com-
promise. The developers ask-
ed for twice as much as they
wanted and by the commis-
sioners'compromise got all
they wanted. Their attorneys
advised them to do that."
There is till time for a
change though as the line has
to be approved by the Trustees
of the Internal Improvement
Fund in Tallahassee.


Bay Winds Up Canal


I have just returned to Sara-
sota after spending three years
in Ft. Lauderdale. I had pre-
viously lived in Sarasota where
I was born. I have been read-
ing in the various papers late-
ly, including yours, that the
Commissioners in Sarasota,
Longboat and Manatee County
have agreed to extend the.
bulkhead lines and permit pri-
vate developers to fill and
construct subdivisions.
They have asked for very
conservative filling, consider-
ing the available area, for
now. But granting this "con-
servative fill" now will only
lead to more and more filling
in the future. The same thing
that is happening here now
happened in Ft. Lauderdale
years ago.
SThere used to be a big love-
ly bay in Ft. Lauderdale but
now it is just-a system of puney
canals that will hardly allow
two large yachts to pass each
other. Bay fishing is hardly
'remembered and a Sunday
outing in the family outboard
is as maddening and frustrat-
ing as fighting five o'clock
traffic. Water skiing has be-
come not only difficult but
exceedingly dangerous due to
the large number of boats
crammed into such a small
operating area. Boating ac-
cidents of all types have be-
come commonplace.
Ft. Lauderdale can do noth-
ing to correct their plight but
iwe can. As we stand now we
lare in good shape to work a-
1gainst any filling because we
can stop it before it begins.
We now have an advantage we
may lose if we sit back and
merely complain to ourselves.
What is needed is letters of
protest and phone calls to the
Commissioners letting them
know that we still run the
show and they, as our elected
representatives, are duty, if
not honor bound, to do our
bidding. They are our tools
of government not our dicta-
tors. A decision they make
without a popular vote can be
overridden. I am asking the
citizens of Sarasota and Mana-
tee Counties to break away
from the complacency to
which they have succumbed
and call for a popular vote on
the bulkhead line and move it
back to its one foot limit and
leave it there for now and
evermore.

COVER STORY

Edwards of Siesta
There is hardly a seafaring
man or a fisherman in these
parts who is not familiar with
the small chain of islands in
lower Sarasota Bay, just south
of'the Siesta Key bridge,
which bear the intriguing
name of Lopaframa Islands.
It is no coincidence that
these islands, covering about
50 acres of valuable water-
front property, belong to the
man who is not only Siesta
Key's foremost citizen but is
also the elder statesman and
"father" of Sarasota County.
No one but A. B. Edwards
fits this description.
On October 2, A. B. Ed-
wards will observe the 85th
anniversary of his birth in a
log cabin built by his father,
John L. Edwards, on the shore
of Sarasota Bay at what is
now the Uplands. If the cabin
were still there (it went up
in flames back in the winter
of 1891-92), the line divid-
ing Sarasota and Manatee
Counties, which Edwards was
largely instrumental in creat-
ing in 1921, would pass right
through the middle of the
cabin.
So Mr. Edwards may stake
out 85 years as a claim to
first citizenship, as well as a
lifetime of accomplishments
in behalf of the people of his
beloved community, inwhich
he has dwelled so long and so
fruitfully.
Among these fruits are four
daughters, Louise, Pauline,
Frances and Martha, the first
letters of whose names Mr.
Edwards used in naming his
chain of islands.
When Mr. Edwards petition
ed the State Internal Improve.
ment Board to purchase the
islands in 1921, he was told
the board would accept a
minimum bid of $60 per
acre. But when he got to
Tallahassee to make his bid,
he found other buyers there


from Miami, Jacksonville,
St. Petersburg, Tampa and
even Sarasota. Instead of
getting the islands for $60 an
acre, he paid $300, or $15,
000 for the 50 acres. Today
the islands are probably worth
at least that amount per acre
as a waterfront development.
The elder statesman is -
presently negotiating with the
Army Corps of Engineers in
Jacksonville over moving the
inland waterway channel
which cuts through the island
group and would interfere with
normal, development of the
islands for residential purposes.
But the problems of develop-
ment in his native community
are nothing new to A. B. Ed-.
wards, who, at least since
1903, has had a hand in guid-


ing the growth of Sarasota and
its chain of keys from an in-
dolent fishing village to the
economic and resort center
of the west coast area.
Left an orphan at 14, Ed-
wards became a cowboy and
rode the ranges of Sarasota
County for many years. He
became familiar with every
trail.and water hole in the
area, knowledge which has
stood him in good stead dur-
ing his long career both as a
real estate man and public
servant.
After spending 18 months
in Cuba during the Spanish-
American War, as a trans-
portation officer with the
Quartermaster Corps, young
Edwards returned to his ranch
job with the pioneer Knight


family, who had settled in
the community then known
as Horse and Shay, but now
known as Nokomis.
The Knights built a fence
across the land from the bay
at Nokomis to the Myakka
River, six miles away, and
their herd of 30, 000 to 40,
000 cattle roamed the coun-
try all the way southward to
Placida, below Englewood.
The Knights not only raised
cattle, they raised children,
seven sons and eight daughters;
and countless grandchildren,
one of whom was destined to
become Mrs. A. B. Edwards.
As A. B. tells it, he came
back from Cuba Rwith my
pockets full of gold." The
army paid off in gold coin,
and with 18 months of say-

ings in his pockets, young A.
B. returned to Nokomis, mar-
ried his sweetheart in 1900,
and, incidentally, she still is.
They celebrated their 59th
anniversary last July 2.
A. B. continued his range-
riding until after the first of
his daughters was born. Cover-
ing the huge area in the south
county often kept him away
from home for three or four
weeks at a time, camping in
the scrub. He finally decided
this was no way to raise a
family, so he and his wife
agreed to quit the country
and move to Sarasota, a
sleepy metropolis of 200 souls.
J. Hamilton Gillespie, who
headed the original Scots set-
tlement in Sarasota in 1885,
had been elected the presi-
dent of the town council when
Sarasota was incorporated as
a town in 1902. He also was
busy liquidating the affairs of
the investment company
which founded the Scots set-
tlement here and owned most
of the land hereabouts. He
had known A. B. as a boy
growing up and when A. B.
went to see the town's lead-
ing citizen, Col. Gillespie
did an astonishing thing.
As he chatted with young
Edwards about the "old days,"
he was scribbling something
in a book, A. B. recalls with
a grin.
He tore something out of
the book and handed it to Ed-
wards. It was a check for
$1,000 drawn on the nearest
bank, at Tampa.
"You're now working for
me," Col. Gillespie informed
the surprised young man. "I
want you to help me sell all
this property around here, and
also I need a tax assessor. So
you've got both jobs. Now,
go find yourself an office
somewhere and go to work."

at it ever since, one way or
another. He was here in time
to meet the first passenger
train which pulled in from
Tampa that year over what
is now the Seaboard Airline
Railroad. A. B. had an
overpowering idea that the
railroad meant Sarasota's
future.
He sat down and wrote
every other railroad whose
lines connected with Florida
lines and told them about -
Sarasota and "the great po-
tential here." He told these
railroads he would be glad
to answer any and every in-
quiry they received about
Florida.
Edwards' idea paid off many
fold. He soon had to hire a

secretary to keep up with the
queries and the growth of
Sarasota began.
In 1910, he put an ad in
the Chicago Sunday Tribune,
to sell an orange grove here -
abouts. Among the prospects
he received was a reply from
the Potter Palmers of Chicago.
As a result, Mrs. Potter Palm-
er chartered a private Pullman
car and made her first visit to
Sarasota. What the Palmer
family did to speed the de-
velopment of this area is well
known history, and A. B. Ed-
wards may feel just pride in
the part he played in this as
well as many other roles.

In nearly six decades of
service to his community,
there is one thing, however,
in which A. B. takes the
most pride. That is the crea-
tion of the Myakka River
State Park, covering 28,000
acres of beautiful and primi-
tive land along the river, 17
miles east of Sarasota.

Mrs. Potter Palmer had left
most of the land to her brother
in her will, but the brother
apparently was not interested
in the land and at his death,
it became involved in his es-
tate, with a considerable a-
mount of past due taxes
claimed by the state.
Edwards went to Tampa,
told the court's appointed ref-
eree that he wanted to buy
the land for use as a state
park, and what could it be
bought for?


The referee thought for a
moment and replied: "Give
me 35 cents an acre and pay
the past due taxes."
Edwards'replied: "You've
just sold that land!"
For less than $10,000, Ed-
wards acquired the site for
the state's most beautiful
park, now valued at millions.
For many years Edwards
served on the state board of
parks and forestries, and head-
ed the board for several years,
in recognition of his contri-
butions to the state's park
system. Edwards never dis-
closed to the court that he had
been authorized by a group of
private sportsmen to buy the
land as a hunting preserve for
several dollars an acre, in-
cluding a $28,000 fee for
Edwards.
Edwards became Sarasota's
first mayor in 1914 when the
new city charter was adopted.
He served again in 1915.Then
retired until he was drafted
to-run again in 1918. He was
elected and re -elected in
1919. In 1921, he chairman-
ned the committee that carv-
ed Sarasota County out of
Manatee County and pushed
the act through the legislature,
of that year. He also saw
service as a school trustee,
road supervisor'and many
other public posts.
Is there any wonder why A.
B. Edwards has come to be
known as the community's
first citizen and elder states-
man?

BEACH,BAY & GULF

Save The Beaches

This is the first of a series
of articles reviewing the pro-
blem of erosion of the 51
miles of beach front on the
keys of Manatee and Sarasota
Counties. These white sand
beaches are the main physical
asset of the two counties. The
rate of erosion in recent years
has caused particular alarm
in view of the anticipated
rapid development of the
beach areas for resort and
residential purposes.
A number of proposals for
erosion control are under
study and still more are on
the way. All of these involve
expense to the county, state
and federal governments of an
amount which could very
materially affect the pocket
book of the taxpayers.
The taxpayer in general is
very poorly informed on the
matter and the Look-out con-
siders it imperative that ex-
tensive information on the
subject be made available so
the residents of these counties
may vote intelligently on
whatever final proposal may
be agreed on by all govern-
ment agencies.
Starting with 1874 a number
of surveys have been made of
beachfront and off-shore bot-
tom by the U. S. Coastal and
Geodetic Survey, by the
United States Army, by the
Coastal Engineering Labora-
tory of the University of Flor-
ida and by several engineer-
ing firms employed in con-
nection with public construct-
ion projects in the bays and
inlets to the bays.
The first extensive investi-
gation for the purpose of
specifying specific measures
for erosion control was made
by the Army Corps of Engi-
neers in 1946. The results are
described in a report sent to
the Congress by the Secretary
of War in 1947. This report
contains much basic informa-
tion that supplies an excellent
background for the layman in
grasping the general problem
of saving the beaches of this
area and protecting the keys
themselves from further loss
of land.
The following passages are
quoted from the Army report.

"Formal application for the
investigation was made by the
board of county commissioners
on September 17, 1945. It
was approved by the Chief of
Engineers on October 29,1945.
The study area includes the
shore of Anna Maria Key from

years old, back in 1895, I cast my first vote for your grandfather, Adlai Stevenson." The
first Adlai Stevenson was Vice-President under Grover Cleveland.


a point on Tampa Bay about
1.7 miles southeast of Bean
Point around Bean Point to
Longboat Inlet, a distance of
about 9 miles, and the shore
of Longboat Key from Long-
boat Inlet southward to the
Manatee-Sarasota County
line, about 4 miles.

"The purpose of the study is
to determine the best method
of preventing further erosion
and of stabilizing the beaches.
There are no prior reports on
beach erosion in this area.

"Manatee County is located
on the west coast of Florida
about midway of the length of
the peninsula. It is bounded
on the west by the Gulf of
Mexico and on the north by
Tampa Bay.

"United States Highway
Route No. 41 traverses the
mainland area. The coastal
area is low-lying ground with
bays separating the low, sandy
barrier beach keys from the
mainland. Access to Anna
Maria and Longboat Keys is
by State highway routes 18
and 18A. On the keys these
highways generally parallel
the Gulf shore.

The population of Manatee
County in 1945 was 26,803.
The main urban center is
Bradenton, the county seat,
located on the Manatee River


about 10 miles from the en-
trance to Tampa Bay. Braden-
ton and its immediate environs
have a permanent population
of about 18,000. The winter
population is considerably
greater. Farming, fishing,
and providing for the needs of
visitors are the principal
activities in the area. Many
winter residents and visitors
come from other states. The
principal beach communities
in the study area are Anna
Maria and Bradenton Beach
formerlyy called Cortez
Beach), located, respectively
on the northern and southern
portions of Anna Maria Key.
They have a normal housing
capacity of about 600. The
residential development of the
keys is generally of modest
character. The assessed valu-
ation of the real estate locat-
ed between the Gulf ordinary
high-water line and the State
highway routes 18 and 18A
within the study limits on
Anna Maria and Longboat
Keys is $408,190. About
$150, 000 of this valuation is
at Bradenton Beach. All of
this real estate is privately
owned. Land gulfward of the
ordinary high-water line is
State owned, and the public
has unrestricted access to this
land.

"The peninsula of Florida
is the emergent eastern half
of a great continental plateau


which lies between the Gulf
of Mexico and the Atlantic
Ocean. The plateau is ap-
parently part of the old land
continent of Appalachia and
was above sea level until sub-
merged for the first time in
the Upper Cretaceous period.

"Upon the ancient rocks of
the platform were deposited
a thick series of shallow mar-
ine deposits attesting to sev-
eral cycles of uplift and sub-
sidence. The source of much
of these materials was the
Piedmont and Appalachian
highlands of the Southeastern
States. Central Florida seems
to have been a land area
since the end of Miocene
time, but the coastal areas
have possessed much less
stability since that time.

"In Pliocene time the west
coast north of St. Petersburg
was apparently tilted down-
ward toward the west. The
tilting is considered to ac-
count for the broad embay-
ment of the coast between
Clearwater and Apalachicola,
although this feature to some
extent may have been due to
solution action on the lime-
stones of the region, since
the embayed areas were bor-
dered throughout by soluble
limestones.

"If tilting actually occurred
it was effected before the on-

set of Pleistocene time for
none of the beds of this epoch
show deformation. Since the
.beginning of Pleistocene time,
the east, south, and west
coasts have drowned and
drained repeatedly during
fluctuations in sea level.

"These oscillations appear
to be correlated with the
Pleistocene glacial and inter-
glacial stages during which
great quantities of water were
alternately withdrawn and
returned to the sea by the
freezing and melting of the
continental ice sheets.

"Much of the Floridian
plateau was dry land during
each of the four advances of
the ice sheets in the north,
but during the first interglac -
ial stage all but the highest
parts of the plateau were sub-
merged. Each subsequent sub-
mergence, however, left in-
creasingly larger areas above
the sea, and terraces of seven
well-defined shore lines of
recession have been recogniz-
ed on the Atlantic and Gulf
coasts of Florida.

"The western part of Mana -
tee County was covered by a
thin mantle of the lowest of
these terraces--the Pamlico.
This covering, composed al-
most entirely of quartz sand,
was deposited by waves and
currents during the flooding
attending the last interglacial
stage. When, finally, the sea
withdrew during the last glac-
ial stage (the Wisconsin), it
never rose again to a level
higher than its present one.

"Along the emergent east
and west coasts, with their
gentle sloping shores covered
by the sandy Pleistocene
formations, numerous barrier
beaches have formed under
wave and current action in
geologically recent times.
Anna Maria and Longboat
Keys are examples of such
beaches. They are composed
of recent marine deposits con-
sisting of quartz sand and shell
in varying mixtures. Available
evidence is not conclusive as
to the source of the quartz
sand. However, there is no
indication that the sand, at
the present time, is coming
from sources far to the north.
In the opinion of some author-
ities, it is derived from other
sand deposits in the region of
the beaches.

"The mechanical analysis
of the samples revealed fine
material with median diam-
eters varying only from 0. 17


to 0. 19 millimeter, except
for the northern end of the
island where the shell content
increased the median diamet-
ers to as much as 0.44 milli -
meter. For Longboat Key,
"mechanical analysis of the
samples revealed fine sand
with median diameters of
0. 17 to 0. 18 millimeter for
those samples containing a-
bout 20 percent or less shell.
Samples containing up to 57
percent shell have median
diameters of 0. 17 to 0.24
millimeter, these samples
representing the entire length
of the study area on Longboat
Key. Other samples contain-
ing over 80 percent shell have
median diameters of 0. 38 to
1. 57 millimeters, these re-
latively large sizes resulting
entirely from the shell con-
tent. The material contain-
ing a large amount of shell is
scattered throughout the area."

OPEN FORUM

Storm Cribs

What is being done about
erosion? There is a case in
point on Longboat Key where
the storm waves recently cut
away in front of a wall and
washed over the wall carry-
ing away the back fill so that
tie backs are exposed. The
agent who has charge and
wants to do the right thing
has said he couldn't use any
apparatus on the beach with-
out State authority. Some-
body has him buffaloed or
have they? Is it possible that
an owner who wants protect-
ion has to go through State
redtape to use an apparatus
that is correct engineering,
even when he pays the bill?
That apparatus might be
right.

We have written three let-
ters to various authorities
giving detailed data telling
how to use the elements to
keep sand on the beaches and
have offered photographic
evidence. The only answer
received is that the letters
have been forwarded to the
"proper party." Who is or
what is the "proper party?"

Several months ago we
visited the Erosion Conference
and heard about an atomic
powered submarine dredge
but no address was given. It
was to give automatic arti-
ficial nourishment to the
beaches. Can you believe it?
And who would or could pay
for that kind of artificial
nourishment? Artificial nour-
ishment is only needed after


a storm when the uncontrol-
led elements have ravished
the shore. Why not do some-
thing about the storm ---
control it and use it. At that
conference no one even men-
tioned the possibility of hold-
ing sand on the beaches.
Isn't that what we want to do?

Is it possible that the State
or "who is the proper author-
ity" is not interested in such
facts as the following:

Any kind of obstruction
will gather sand on the beach
in normal weather. If in reg-
ular formation they are called
groins or jetties. Ilowever,
there has never yet been de -
signed a seaward groin of any
kind that will hold sand on
the beach or protect property
in bad weather. That is axio-
matic.

Seaward groins are a fair
weather product. They are
good between storms. When
storms strike they do little
good. The storm digs under or
over walls and washes away or
destroys beach property. That
is erosion and people are so
accustomed to it that they
just take it; either repair or
move out but just take it as
an act of God.

The only way to stop erosion
is to use the elements. Make
so violent a turbulence at the
shoreline that the sluggish
mass is too heavy to flow. The
waves are destroyed and can
not reach the wall. This can
only be done by means of
parallel groin cribs. Such
cribs are the only method yet
designed for using the elements
to keep sand on the beach.
They are an all weather pro-
tection against erosion. The
parallel groins are never visible
except in stormy weather when
they are doing their work.

How is it possible for the
"proper authority" not to be
interested in such facts?


Duck's Back

LIDO- In the June 11 issue a
letter from Mr. Lewis Van Wezel
appeared calling attention to a
disgraceful situation. He pro-
tested against the lack of con-
sideration shown by the con -
struction firm laying the water
and sewer pipe on Lido and St.
Armands. Sadly enough the
conditions which he pointed out
still prevail.

The pumps have not been
muffled and they still run day


13

and night. There are still the
pungent sulphur fumes which
corrode silver so badly that
many of us have had to put it
away until the job is finished.
There are still no adequate road
markers to indicate which roads
are open and which are closed.
Water and sand are still dumped
in roadways and yards indis-
criminately'and the holes inthe
roads have not been repaired.
Our automobile tires and springs
are suffering considerably. Mr.
Van Wezel has tried to secure
some form of cooperation from
the construction firm, but he
says, "You might as well pour
water on a duck's back".
These contractors should be
obligated by contract to mini-
mize such public nuisance.
What would be the cost of a few
mufflers and splatter-proof
spouts on the pumps compared
to the tremendous over-all ex-
pense of the job?

REAL ESTATE

lin Drive. The permit for the
'foundation is the only one
taken out so far but construc-
tion is expected in the near
future.
Mr. Nadelman will hold a
press conference next week,
at which time he will release
the details of construction and
cost. Mr. Jack West of Siesta
Key has been retained as ar-
chitect and Mr. T. T. Watson
will do the contracting for the

Longboat Town Commission

LONGBOAT KEY At its

Longboat Town Commission
moved to urge State Road
Department Officials to clear
and establish safe right-of-

The action came in answer to
the many protests concerning
the unsafe condition of the
shoulders adjacent to the road.
The Commission also cited
several violations of the town

and two restaurants were cited
for using open tube neon signs
and two or three people have
still not removed their signs
from the State right-of-way.

OPEN FORUM

tan We Afford RMt To
Dig The Canal
Admittedly there have been
many sound reasons offered in
the past which have justified
the expenditure of Federal
money for the construction of
the West Coast Inland Water-
way. These reasons have been
built upon a wide range of
sound basic concepts.
In a )rief discussion of this
nature little more can be done
than recognizing them as sound
and enumerating them for em-
phasis. Some of theye reasons
are hence reiterated, as follows:
1. A great boon to the
pleasure boat industry.
2. A great added attraction
to tourists.
3. An increase in the "safe-
ty" aspect of boating.
4. An advantage for com-
mercial fishing, and for "char-
ter" and "sightseeing" boats.
5. A great economic boost
to the boat equipment indus-
try, to boat repair yards, to
marinas, and to local business
of all kinds.
6 A definite" Defense"'ad-
vantage, in that U. S. Navy
Offshore and Inshore Patrol
boats could be stationed at
many additional points along
the West Coast. This same sit-
uation in peace time would
augment the stationing of Coast
Guard Patrol and Rescue Vessels
at more advantageous locations,
7. A reduction of freight
rate on many bulk-type com-
modities which could come
from the west by barge, rather
than having to make the long
and expensive dog leg journey


to Jacksonville by rail.
The above are only a few of
the many sound reasons which
have been mentioned before
and which we heartily endorse.
However, while these rea-
ions have stressed the resultant
advantage to the local residents,
the local merchants, the tour-
ists, the fishermen, andthe de-
fense aspect, there has not, to
our knowledge, ever been a study
to establishthat the one million
dollars nowbefore Congress, or
even the six million dollars to-
tal ultimately to be appropriat-
ed will, in actual fact, bere-
coveredbythe Federal Govern-
ment in such a short time that
the Canal will not only be self-
liquidating, it will become a
greater advantage to the Fed-
eral Government money-wise
-han any other investment the
Government could possibly
make at this time.
The purpose then, of this
discussion, is to bring out into
the open the tremendous
amount of new money which
will flow into the Federal Gov-
ernment as a result of the in-
creased use of boats, once the
Canal is completed, as follows:
1. A conservative estimate
of the number of boats of all
types in the five Florida Coun-
ties included in the proposed
Canal Area is 50, 000 boats.
2. An ultra-conservative
estimate of the gasoline and
lubricating oil used by these
boats amounts to five gallon


of gasoline per hour and one
quart of lubricating oil per
hour.
3. A survey recently com-
pleted for the U. S. Engineers
by the Siesta Key Association,
in conjunction with the Sara-
sota Power Squadron, the Out-
board Clubs, and Riegel's
Boatyard leads us to conclude
that a conservative figure ap-
proximating the increased use
after the Canal is finished fig-
ured in "hours per month"
would be 20 new hours of use
per month per boat, or 240
hours per boat per year.
4. 240 hours per boat times
50, 000 boats amounts to 12,
000, 000 hours per year. Mul-
tiply this by five gallons of
gasoline per hour and youhave
60, 000, 000 gallons of gaso-
line, the Federal Taxonwhich
is 3 cents per gallon. This
Tax alone will recover to the
$e-er1a-T -ov-ernm (en T0
IU?-0U the first year. e six
cents a gallon, or- -/2 cents
a quart Federal tax on lubri-
cating oil (an outboard uses 1
quart oil to every 5 gallon -
tankful of gas) will amount to
another $180,000.00, so that
the total tax income, the first
year alone, only on gasoline
and oil will amount to $1,980,
000.00, almost twice as much
as the present amount now-e-
ing considered by Congress for
the first stage of construction.

increased the gas tax from 2to

They are not all covered with sand.


I






3 cents provides a procedure
whereby at year end one cent
can be recovered by non-high-
way users, however few if any'
boat owners so apply. )
The over-all Federal Cost of
the Canal will be of an order
of 6 million dollars. We have
just established a tax income
of $1,980, 000.00, or substan-
tially two million dollars per
year!! In other words, the
Canal will have paid for itself
in three years, and from that
time on, all income from tax-
es will be net profit other than
moderate maintenance ex-
penses. We ask you what
other investment can the Gov-
ernment make that will return*
133-1/3 percent per year?
This, of course, is not the
whole story, not by millions of
dollars. Our figures were
based not only on the most
conservative of estimates, --
they were based upon 50, 000
boats per year. Actual statis-
tical facts will establish that
by the end of the third year
there will be at least 100, 000
boats utilizing the Canal. (The
boating industry is the fastest
growing industry in the U. S.
of all "recreation type" indus-
tries. American Cyanamid
Corporation, one company of
many which produce plastic

; of new net income to the Fed-
eraTl ovemment appears to us
to be'the very minimum bene-
fit from gasoline and oil tax
alone.
Again this is not the whole
story of resultant benefit to

'-_- 'wise, not by millions of
S~other tax dollars, more diffi-
cult however to lay out on the
table but nevertheless of tre-

avail himself and his family
during the month, of 3 days'
use of a rental drive-yourself car,r
and of 12 taxi-rides, for gro-
cery shopping, and to and from
restaurants, theatres, night
clubs. How much Federal Tax
is involved is difficult to pin-
point, but let us bear in mind
it is not only on the gasoline
and oil the taxi uses--it is
present in the purchase price of
a new taxi, in the corporation
tax of the taxi company--in
the individual income tax of
the taxi driver.
Inasmuch as this discussion
is solely for the purpose of es-
tablishing the West Coast In-
land Waterway, or Canal, as
a splendid Income Investment
for the Federal Government,
time does not permit us to
dwell on similar benefits to the
state or to counties or munici-
palities, but considering the
direct taxes accruing therefrom
alone, such as the new boat
tax law, the personal property
tax on boats, the seven cents a
gallon state tax on gasoline,
we would and could again come
up with some startling large
figures.
In conclusion then we ask our
readers to determine in their
own minds what is a fair figure
not of what the Canal will cost,
but of what we are losing by
NOT HAVING IT, solely on an
Income Basis, discounting all
other benefits of safety; con-
venience, pleasure, fishing, de-
fense, freight rates, etc.
If then you become convinced,
as are we, that our Federal
Government CAN NOT AFFORD
to pass up this new money mak-
ing opportunity any longer, here
are the addresses of your Con-
gressman and Senators who are
already convinced and are

they couldn't resist the call of

dark their parents became
quite concerned about the two
boys and began looking for
them. Mr. Cable called the
Coast Guard Auxiliary andthen
started searching in his other
boat. He made ever increas-
ing circles Gulfward.
Mr. Cabel and his son-in-

the boys about midnight two
miles out in the Gulf off Long-

us that although the boys caught
no fish they did catch the devil.

CONSERVATION PIECE

In the last issue we printed
a letter from Jim Neille to
Nick Robertson of the Sara-
sota Herald Tribune, on the
subject of conserving our

around our office about water
conservation that it was not
too difficult to switch the S
and V in setting type. It
should have read "water con-
servation. "

CASE OF THE MISSING
FOOTPRINTS

Perhaps you read an article
about me in the last issue
(July 23). First, let me say
it was generallyinaccurate,
and, I suspect, deliberately
so. The guy that writes that
kind of nonsense will appar-
.ently go to any ends to be
funny.
Well, this time, I can
assure you he went much too
far. The Look-out has made
a bitter enemy of just about
.every cat I know and, from
what I hear, the cats in both
counties are pretty unhappy
about the situation. What
,worries me is the effect it
will have on advertisers. I
don't think things are going
too well around here anyway.
I notice they've switched me
to canned milk, and that's
usually a sign that somebody
,is just a jump ahead of the
sheriff. If prospective adver-
tisers were thinking about
selling cat food through the
Look-out, they might as


well forget about it. And I
suspect there may be a lot of
cat-owning advertisers and
subscribers who will drop out
anyway.
Second, let me say there
has been a pretty grim mis-
understanding about what I'm
supposed to do around here.
I've been doing just about
everything I can think of that
a cat could possibly do a-
round an office. (Absolutely
everything Ed.) What's an
office cat supposed to do
anyway, -act like a cat, or
like one of those awkward
two-legged human contrap-
tions that keep tripping over
things and bumping into each
other? They can't even find
their way out of the building
at night unless they snap on
one of those things that hurt
your eyes and burn your paws.
The discipline around here
is really something pretty
awful. I realize there is work
to be done and we're all sup-
posed to keep at it until it's
finished. But people are al-
lowed coffee breaks and I
don't like coffee, so what do
I do? I can't just sit and star
at that dirty pan full of this
nauseating canned milk
which is always either too
hot or too cold, while they
all yak themselves into a
state of partial exhaustion.
Why they can work better
after one of those perform-
ances is something I don't
think I, or any other cat,
will ever understand.
So I try to find something
to play with any littlething,
like a piece of paper, or a

shoelace or typewriter keys
or the funny thing that clicks
on the front of telephones.
Well, these people have the
most uncontrollable tempers.
Sometimes when I knock off
work for a few minutes of
play they gather around and
shout with rage. If it isn't
rage, it's something we cats
can't understand. They sound
like a bunch of hysterical
ducks. And they shake them-
selves all over. This is ex-
tremely annoying and uncat-
like.
Besides, they are a jealous
and suspicious lot. I heard
one of them say, "Whoever
heard of an office-cat. It's
just a nuisance and the sooner
we get rid of it the better."
"It," mind you! That's be-
cause they don't know if I'm
a man or a woman. They say
it's because I'm too young to
tell. Well, that's ridiculous
They know what their own
babies are the day they are
born.
They just don't care enough
about me to call in an expert
to find out. It can be pretty
upsetting to a cat not to know
which. Other cats are un-
friendly when I can't answer.
Can you imagine what a hu-
man mother would do if they
couldn't tell her what her
baby was? She wouldn't call
in an expert, she would call
in a couple of trial lawyers.
This guy that wants to get
me out of the office is just
scared of his job. He should
have sense enough to know I
don't want it. I find his work
intensely uninteresting. He
sits motionless all day soiling
clean white paper with one
of those things that taste bad
at one end. That's a fine
thing to do. I want to go out
and sell subscriptions. I like
to mix.
Now about that stupid arti-
cle about me. Did you notice
the printing was pretty messy?
There's a reason. After it was
all neatly typed by Marty
and neatly pasted in the copy
page by Al and ready to go to
Hugo for photo-engraving,

what happens? They grab me
by the back of the neck,
push my paws onto a rubber
stamp pad and force them
down on the copy so my
thumbprints would be printed
across the face of the whole
article. The idea was that
readers would think I did it.
They hoped this might make
the article even funnier. It
just shows how far unfunny
writers will go in desperation.
Well, it was quite a strug-
gle, but I didn't have a
chance. It was one of the
most unsporting performances
I ever hope to engage in.

Think of it! I weigh 1 3/4
pounds and I'm 3 months old.
There were four of them,
averaging at least 140 pounds
and one of them must be at
least 60. Can you think of a
worse situation for a cat to
find himself in. Of course,-
they never gave a thought to
how embarrassing a published
set of thumbprints could be in
later years, particularly if
I'm a boy.
Well, Hugo is one person I
can trust. He carefully re-
moved the prints between the
lines and the only marks
showing were those right on
top of the letters. So I think
he saved me from future
identification if I ever be-
come involved around the
neighborhood.
I wish one of you readers
would write and tell me what
standard working conditions
are of other office cats.What
are hours and pay? Is there a
union? Please mark it Con-
fidential. I just don't trust
these people. That thumb-
print thing was the end. God
bless Hugo. CC

In the July 23 issue a slight
error was made in reporting

On page 16 it stated that "the

toward the shore, and through

We are indebted to Sam
Adams, a member of the

the reverse is true, and that
"the recordings were made

message on the dependence
of our County on it's beaches.
As a matter of fact Saras6ta
County has no beaches except
Siesta Beach, Nokomis Beach
and one on Manasota Key.
Lido Beach-belongs to the city
of Sarasota. The combined
length of the three County-
owned beaches mentioned
above is only a few hundred
yards, an infinitesimal part
of the many miles of beaches
in Sarasota County. All the
rest of the beaches in our
County are privately owned,
and some of them have NO
TRESPASS signs on them.
Due to the structure of some
of the beaches in this County
and to some extent on the di-
rection of the prevailing
strong winds on this coast, the
beaches erode, more at some
points than at others.
For some time past public
moneys have been sought by
some Key organizations to be
used for rebuilding and main-
taining these privately owned
beaches. Fortunately our laws

the current session of the Legisr
lature, ---". See Key Look-
out, June 11, 1959 issue, page
19, subject; Beach, pay &
Gulf, Erosion Letter. The cre-
ation of a law empowering
our public officials to tax our
free holders would do much
harm to our community, and
furthermore this law would
create more Bureaucrats of
which our Nation now is al-
ready overburdened..
In his letter Mr. Lyle further
states, quote, "The matter of
erosion has been one of grow-
ing concern to the owners of
gulf front property on Casey
Key". That in itself is evi-
dence that public moneys, if
obtained, are intended to be
used directly for private pur-
poses. Such use of tax moneys
must not be permitted. It is
evident that the proposed law
is intended for the sole purpose
of compelling those, against,
their will, to contribute to a
cause that in no way affects or
ever will affect their interests.
A way to meet the erosion
problem, if it would meetwith
the approval of the property
,owners whose beaches are
eroding and State officials,
would be to deed to the State
a strip of land of some agreed
upon width, say 75 or 100 feet
measured from high water
mark and parallel thereto for
a public beach together with
an easement along the edge of
each of two adjoining lots at
certain intervals for the use of
pedestrians from the highway
to the beach. In return for
this concession the State would
restore the beaches and main-
tain them in that condition.
Structures of any kind would
not be erected on the beach by
either party without the con-
sent of the other party to the
contract.
Any private property on
which public moneys is spent,
whether obtained through ref-
erendum or otherwise, should
comee public property.

at the Anna Maria City Com-
missioners' meeting Monday
night praised Mayor Woodland
and the two present commis-
sioners for spending most of the
ninety-minute meeting listen-
ing to an argument for the re-
zoning of Mrs. Eleanor Gill's
land at the corner of PalmAve-
nue and Snapper Street, from
residential to commercial after
adjacent land had been turned
down twice in the two previous
meetings. Mayor Woodland
said, "You have come here and
asked us to rezone your property
from residential to commercial
without giving us a good reason
other than you want us to".
Mrs. Gill replied, "These are
tired days and sleepless nights,

County May Repair Beach

From all indications, the
Manatee County Commission
will assume the cost of tempor-
arily repairing the damage to
the Manatee County Public
Beach caused by the June 17
storm.
At the July 27 meeting Com-
missioner Jack Jones reported
on his meeting at Jacksonville
on July 20 with the U. S. Corps
of Engineers. His report follows:
S"The object of the meeting
was to discuss possible ways and
means of protecting and nour-
ishing the Gulf beaches of Anna

possibilities of federal partici-
pation in the cost.

and turned in a negative report
as no public lands were in-

public land federal aid would
be one third of the cost; if
half and half, public and pri -
vate, maximum federal aid
would be one -sixth.
"The suggestion that sand
from the Inla d Waterway
channel be pumped to the
Gulf beach is oi little or no
value. There would not be
enough to 'be a drop in the
bucket.' It is too far away,
as the maximum favorable
distance is set at 3000 feet
and most of the channel is
two and three times that dis-
tance away; it is two years
away in time before work in
the channel would reach this
area. Nor is it feasible for
artificial nourishment to be
pumped from the Gulf due to
the sharp off shore drop. There
may be other areas of sub-
merged land in shallow water
from which sand could be ob-
tained.
"The cost of artificial nour-
ishment is high; in PalmBeach
it was $100,000 a mile which
does not include groins or
other protective installations.
The thought was expressed
that the cost may be appreci-
ably lower on the Island's
shores.
"One danger of filling pub-
lic and private contiguous
shorelines is 'inviting legal
headaches from private own-
ers who want their beaches
the way they are.' It was
decided that Dr. Per Bruun
will submit to the Public
Beach Commission within the
week, temporary measures
for restoring and maintaining
the Manatee County Public
Beach."
At press time, Dr. Bruun's
report had not yet been re-
ceived, but will be reviewed
in the August 20 issue of the

chance to be selected as Miss
America" completely capture -
the hearts of the nearly one
thousand admirers who wel-
comed her to the Manatee
County Public Beach on Anna
Maria Saturday, July 25.
That was "Nancy Purvis
Day" in Manatee County, and
her motorcade roared out over
the Anna Maria Bridge to the
Beach Pavilion where she was
greeted by'Jack Marshall,
President of The Island Cham-
ber of Commerce, and Ed
Bauman, representing the Is-
land Kiwanis Club which man-
ages the Beach facilities. The
two beaming and definitely
pleased gentlemen escorted
Nancy to the platform mid-
way up the new central stair-


way, where Baunan took over
as emcee and introduced
"our Nancy" to the crowd.
She replied briefly but prettily
and if the number of cameras
present was any indication,
Kodak stock must have soared
from film purchases since
Nancy was chosen Miss Florida.
Bauman then turned the
festivities over to Marshall
who introduced Richard Low
acting for Mayor Maxwell
Woodland of Anna Maria who
was out of town, John Holmes
Jr. representing Mayor Carl
Scott of Holmes Beach, also
away, and Mayor P. C. Van
Rensselaer of Bradenton
Beach.
After the introductions
Nancy received an Island a-
ward of a week vacation for
herself and her family at the
Blue Water Beach Apartments,
and a new swim suit. Nancy
remarked that the Gulf looked
inviting, whereupon Marshall
suggested that she might like
to put on the new suit and

Miss DeSoto and the 1958 Miss
Bradenton, Anita Lane.
As Nancy ascended the steps,
she was met by King Neptune
ably impersonated by Tom
Edwards of Holmes Beach,
who, reading from a scroll,
warned various and sundry
seafaring imen in, on and over
his domain, that he was "here
and now appointing Nancy the
'Queen of Florida Waters. *
He received a kiss from Nancy
for his effts while cameras
clicked marily.
Nancy then went down to
the beach where happy mothers
shoved their own potential
Miss Americas and Mr. Amer-
Sicas into juxaposition with
Nancy far a "picture to send
to their grandma." Nancy
complied, antil she was warn-
ed that she was late for a
luncheon.
One thing is sure. EVERY-
BODY, but everybody, will be
voting for Nancy Purvis to be-
come Miss America! !

OPEN FORUM

Sleep,Sleep, Beautiful Sleep


As Sancho Panza -once said
"God bless the man who first
invented sleep." That may be
all well and good as it goes,
but when that sleep is so often
disturbed by a John Barleycorn
party or by some thoughtless
neighbor who insists on having
his radio on full blast far into
the night, often as late as
4 a.m. then that sleep be-
comes a harrowing experience.
Well, you don't care to
make any trouble for anyone,
but you are forced to call the
sheriff for your own protection.
You call the sheriff's office
and are told frankly that they
will Iry and send someone
over there to ask these people
to quiet down, but not to ex-
pect definite results, as all
they can do is to try and rea-
son with the people, but they
have no authority to make
them quiet down and not an-
noy the neighbors that there
is no state law or county or -
dinance which gives the
sheriff's office legally any
authority to enforce the peace.
You begin to wonder, then,
what is wrong with our system
of law enforcement. How can
any one person so disturb the
peace as to make sleep im-
possible over the neighbor-
hood, and according to the
sheriff's office they have not
any legal authority to put a
stop to it.
Is it not about time for our
county commissioners to ser-
iously consider the question
and give our poor sheriff
power to enforce the peace
and quiet at night? Will our
county authorities kindly re-
lieve the sheriff of this em-
barrassment and let us get
some sleep, and they will all
be contributing to our peace
of mind. Thank you.

look out! Remember that Fre
when the ordinance was being 88a. d]

Slogans For Signs
LONGBOAT KEY The
Longboat Key Lions Club had
a "Slogans for Signs' contest
from May 18th to July 1st in
an effort to find an appropriate
slogan for a sign at the north
end of the Key so people leav-
ing the Key would not have
to read the old, "Thanks for
coming, stop back again,"
type sign which is so common.
The prize for the best slogan
was five dollars. However, if
someone in the youth group,
18 or under, should submit an
appropriate slogan and it is
used he or she would still be
eligible for the prize money.

Fund Plans
ANNA MARIAISLAND -
The Anna, Maria Island Com-
munity Fund directors are
again urging all groups who
may wish to be considered for
contributions in their 1959-
1960 campaign, to make im-
mediate application in writing
reminding them that the
absolute deadline is August
15. Any request to receive
consideration MUST be ac-
companied by a copy of the
latest budget of the applicant.
The Budget Committee and
the directors will meet on
Tuesday, August 18 at the
Holmes Beach City Office at
8 p.m. to consider the appli-
cations and determine the
grants to be made.
At a Director's meeting
held recently it was pointed
out that the work of the Fund's
Welfare Committee was dis-
cussed and praised, but not
enough thanks and apprecia-
tion had been expressed to
Mrs. James Zerby, who had
done considerable work on
behalf of the Committee.
A motion fwas unanimously
passed and entered on the
records comending her for her
work as the Chairman of the
Welfare Committee.
At the same time she was
asked to reconsider her resig-
nation as Chairman of the
Welfare Committee as pre-
sented at an earlier July
meeting, when Dr. Roy Gun-
ther was appointed in her
stead. Gunther has stated that
he would much prefer stepping
aside and having Mrs. Zerby
continue as Welfare Fund
Chairman. Mrs. Zerby has re-
served decision and will make
her wishes known at the next
meeting.
Meanwhile plans are going
forward for the campaign
which will start in October
with a drive for advance and
special gifts. The main
house-to-house drive will take
place in November. J. D.

Mrs. Zerby read an interest-

perience of other communities
such as St. Petersburg, Tampa
and Sarasota in connection
with soliciting contributions
to a Community Fund which
would include national organ-
izations such as Heart, Polio,
Cancer and Red Cross. It was
previously decided that the
AMI Fund would include the
"Big Four" in their campaign.
Mrs. Zerby reported "poor ex-
perience" from the three com-
munities contacted as far as
one of the "Big Four" was
concerned, but from the re -
cently expressed attitude of
the AMI directors, it is assum-
ed that they will include them
regardless. Further decisions
are expected at the August 18

FIRE & POLICE

Stop!!!
ANNA MARIA ISLAND -
There are several signs at the
Manatee County Public Beach
on which only one word ap -
pears. "STOP!" They mean
just that, but there are ap-
parently a lot of people who
(a) don't read, or (b) don't
intend to comply!
So --- this is fair warning,
that from now on, anyone
failing to STOP at the beach
STOP signs will be treated ac-
cordingly by the county con-
stabulary.
The signs have been placed
at strategic locations to pro-
tect people who cross from
their parked cars to the beach
and back again. Very often
children getting out of a car
will run excitedly ahead of
their parents to the beach.
Motorists failing to STOP at
the STOP signs could injure
or kill one of those youngsters.
The reason many cars dash
through the beach property is
that it is used as a "short cut"
from Gulf Drive (approaching
from the north) to the Anna
Maria Bridge entrance. Efforts
are being made by the Island
Kiwanis Club Beach Commit-
tee to have a sign erected
diverting through traffic via
the Gulf Drive roadway, and
marking the beach road "NO
THROUGH TRAFFIC. "
In any event, will YOU
please comply with the law?
Speed limit ON THE BEACH
PROPERTY IS 15 MILES PER
HOUR and it is so posted.
And --- the STOP signs mean
STOP!!! EB

M. Kates' home, 200 Morning-
.side Drive, was broken into
July 24th. Mr. C. J. Gould,
110 Morningside Drive, noti-
fied police who determined
that Mr. Kates' home was
entered from the rear and, as
far as they could tell, nothing
had been stolen. Mr. Kates is
in the north and no address is
available. GH

Narcotics Arrest
SIESTA KEY -Harvey Rice
Worthington Jr., 202 Island
Circle, has been chargedwith
using fictitious names and
addresses to purchase terpine
hydrate and codeine from at
least five drug stores in town.
These narcotics are a deriva-
tive of opium and morphine,
are habit forming. Their
main use is to relieve pain.
GH
SWho Dunit??
ANNA MARIA The City
of Anna Maria ordered 100
small coconut palms. They
received 100 small coconut
palms. They stored 100 small
palm behind the City Office
on the day of arrival so that
"Winky" Murdock could start
setting them out the next
morning. The next day,
"Winky" found only 75 small
Coconut palms. The City of

EB
Bus Disappears
ANNA MARIA Residents
of Anna Maria Island are great-
ly disturbed over the elimina-
tion of the 6 p. m. bus to the
mainland without notice. The

ing into the situation. EB

RELIGION
Air Conditioners


ANNA MARIA Further
study on the part of the Ex-
'pansion Committee concerned
S[with the purchase of two 3-
ton air conditioning units,
revealed that the units could
not be used practically for the
'church. The Expansion Com-
mittee therefore could not
recommend to the congrega-
tion that the units be pur-
Ichased. The committee ex-
plored every possibility and
felt sure that the final decis-


ion made was a wise one. The
members of the committee
extended their thanks to Mor-
ton Clark for his generous
offer and regreted that it
could not be accepted. EB

Saint Michael's Chapel
SIESTA KEY The founda-
tion has been poured for the

be of cement block and the
roof will be of tile. Father J.
F. Daley, Pastor of the Church
of the Incarnation, will serve
as Pastor when the church is
'completed until another Father
is assigned to the Chapel. The
building permit was taken out
by the Diocese of Saint Augus-
tine of which Sarasota is a part
of just as it is a part of Florida.
GH
