Candidates Are Finding It Ex-
tremely Hard To Arouse
P,rom what we have observed
here in Gulf county the voting
populace is taking but very little
interest in the forthcoming pri-
mary election next Tuesday, even
in our local state representative
race and the contest 'between Carl.
Gray and Bob Sikes for the Third
District congressional seat.
With but four days to go the
candidates will have to do some-
thing drastic if they expect to stir
up any excitement and enthusiasm.
Biggest reason is that this is an
off-year election with no local cam-
paigns nor campaigns for state of-
fices that generally 'bring the most

Greatest interest here in Gulf
county is manifested in the race
for representative, the congres-
sional race, and. the contest for
nomination to the U. S. senate seat
from which Senator C. 0. Andrews
will retire in January.
Naturally, with two well-known
'ocal men, George Tapper and Char-
lie Wilson, ,battling for the Gulf
county seat in the state legisla-
ture, the greatest interest is being
manifested in that contest. General
'coinensus is that it will be close,
with the ed-ge going to George.
Next in interest, we find, is the
fight by' Carl Gray to unseat in-
cumbent Bob Sikes in the con-
gresisiunal race in ourt district. Bob
is campaigning on his past record
and Carl is doing his politicking
with a string 'band for which he

If every man, woman and child

Commercial Plant Food Is Most Efficient When Applied in Trenches on
Both Sides of the Garden Row...
Quick-acting chemical plant food
will benefit garden plants whether
it is spaded into the soil, spread
and raked in as the top soil is be-
ing smoothed, or applied in sev-
eral other ways in which amateur
gardeners may have been in the
habit of using it.
But the most efficient method-
the way that gives the most for
your money is to apply it in
trenches on either side of the gar-
den row in which the seeds are
sown. This method has been de-
veloped in a long series of experi-
ments, land is based upon the way
that plants grow and chemicals be-
have when applied to soil.
Plants require balanced nutrition
from the time seeds germinate, or
the transplants are set out. Yet too
much nitrogen, especially, is h'arm-
ful to seedlings. -Then, certain
chemical food elements do not
travel very fast in the soil. Others
attach themselves to soil particles
and do not move to the feeding root
area. It is better when making
application of plant food to put it
in a location where it will be more
convenient for the roots to reach it.
Even nitrogen, in the form usual.
ly found in plant food, will not at
once dissolve and be evenly dis.
tribute in the soil moisture though
it will in time, after certain chem.
ical changes have taken place.
To use the new method for apply.
ing plant food, stretch the line to
mark the row in which seeds are
to be planted. Then not less than
two inches away on either side,
make a furrow four inches deep.
Pour plant food into each furrovw
at the rate of one pound (or pint)
for 50 feet, and cover it with earth.
Then make the drill in which seed
are to be sown and proceed with
planting as usual.
Remember that it is possible to
use too much plant food, and do
not, exceed the recommended ap<
plication. Additional, plant food
should be applied later at about five
or six week intervals to keep your
plants growing well. ;And be sure
to keep your bands of plant food
two inches away from the seed
drill, so that the soil in which seed-
lings are coming up will not get an
overdose, which the young plants

Gulf county citizens fairly, capably and en-
ergetically if sent to the legislative halls of
our state capital.
George has a ten-point program outlined
on which he will work if elected Tuesday-
1. He will support all beneficial legisla,'
tion for the advancement and improvement of
our Gulf' county school system.
2. He favors a 25 per cent raise in pay for
teachers (and we all know how terribly un-
derpaid our teachers are).
3. He will work for adequate highway and
road development for our county, including
hard-surfacing of the state road from Beacon
Hill to Wewahitchka.
4. He favors keeping our five-man com-
mission government here in Port St. Joe, and
pledges himself to introduce special legislation.
to clarify a number of controversial points In,
the special bill put through at the last session
by our present representative.
5. He favors taking off the "emergency"
one-centrper-gallon tax on gasoline.
6. He will advocate and work for a reduc-
tion in the cost of automobile license tags.
7. ,Being a veteran himself,'he'pledges to
support all legislation beneficial to veterans.
8. He will support any fair labor legisla-
9. Highly favors amending our present
laws to reduce the age requirement of quail-
fied electors from 21 to 18 years of age.
10. He will support civil service for all
In addition to his platform outlined above,
knowing George as we do, we know he will
insist upc;i elimination of any useless spend-
ing of state money by state boards, bureaus
and commissions, and will work assiduously
for any legislation that provides for assistance
to the aged. the blind, and dependent children.
As we stated before, we all know George,
and we know that he will, if elected, at all
times welcome the opportunity to turn an at-

Ma Perkins did.-Reno Evening Gazette.
In our front page article last week on re-
sults of the recently-completed Florida cen-
sus, we touched only 'on that portion pertain-
ing to Gulf county. We did not have room to
consider the state as a whole. Now we will
see what the census shows in that respect.
We find that the population of the state Is
now 2,250,601, an' 18.6 per cent increase over
the 1940 federal census, Broken down, the
figures provide some interesting facts con-
cerning the diversity of this population. For
instance, they show that less than half our
residents-specifically, 48.8 per cent-are na-
tive born. Leading the list of "back home"
states, in order, are Georgia, Alabama, New
York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Ohio,
Illinois, North Carolina, Tennessee, Indiana,
Michigan Massachusetts, Kentucky and New
Jersey. In addition, many foreign born per-
sons have settled in our midst.
Other characteristics of the count are that.
today 1,440,103 persons live in Florida cities
and towns of 2500 or over. The trek to town
began in the early 1920's and has continued
increasingly since that time. In 1920 the
states urban population was 36.5 per cent of
the total, five years after it was 57.3. In -1935
it stood at 61.6, and today it is 64 per, cent.
The state has three cities of more than 100,7
000 populati-on, 20 between 10,000 and 90,060,
17 from 5000 to 10,000, andt 3o from 2500 to
5000. It is brought out that war migrations
brought a loss in population to 29 counties in
Florida, but indications are' that shifts bac-k
to many of these counties are getting under-
way. Gulf county showed no such drain, re-
maining almost static throughout the war
years, the population increasing by 59.
.Other interesting data is that since the turn
of the century, the precent of negro popuia-
ion in Florida has been consistently decreas-
ing. In 1900 negroes comprised 43.8 per cent
of the total population; today this percentage
has fallen to 24.7.
Yes, Florida is growing and will continue to
grow, and Port St. Joe will grow along with
it, In fact, we wouldn't be at all surprised to
find that within the next five years Port S't.
Joe will be more than double its present popu-
lation of 2,393.
JUNIOR C. OF C MERITS SUPPORT
The recently-organized junior chamber of
commerce, which is composed of young men
between the ages of 18 and 35. is a project of
much importance to all residents of Port St.
Joe, and merits the full support of everyone,
since it offers much for the benefit of the city.
First in importance, of course, is the bring-
ing together of 'the largest possible number
of men and women for advice, counsel and
work 'on projects aimed at building a bigger,
better and more prosperous Port St. Joe.
It will be through such combined efforts
that the junior chamber of commerce will be
given the strength and intelligence to work
most effectively toward the development of
industrial, cultural .and civic projects whose
benefits will redound to the good of all resi-
dents of our community.
Through membership in the chamber city-
zens will be given the opportunity to make
their .respective -talents count most, not only
for their own well-being but for the well-
being of their fellowmen, and the contribu-
tions they will make toward maintenance
of the chamber will enable that agency to
achieve results that would be impossible
If you are not already a member (and you
can be a supporting member if above the age
limit), why not join today, since every mem-
ber added to the roster will be reflected in
correspondingly increased activities.

TOO LATE TO
By RUSSELL KAY
You know if those oil folks keep
foolin' around with their drillin'
rigs, first thing you know they'll
tap a gusher and smear, black,
sticky petroleum all over Florida.
Last week at Sunniland in Col-
lier county, the Humble Oil Com-
pany brought in the state's third
producing well, and' from all re-
ports it's a sure enough well that
is delivering oil at the rate of 253
barrels a day: This new well is
just two and a half miles away
from the other two producing wells
in the area and gives concrete evi-
dence that there is oil in the
'Glades and the geologists are get-
tin' closer and closer to the pool.
Another .:good indication Is that
the oil from this new well is bet-
ter quality* that from the other
two wells, with a specific gravity
of 24.9 compared with about 20 for
the other two. Total production
today from the three wells is over
500 barrels a day.
Interest is reaching Tever heat
in the area, for. the big oil com-
panies have leased, millions of
acres in -Central and, South Flor-
ida, and everyone with an oil lease
on his property is thrilled at the
news. and' feels confident that the
day will come when he will cash in
on the black gold that he is cer-
tain lies, hidden below his land.
As was the case when the other
producing wells were brought in,
the success with the new well has
caused, a rush of curious to the
spot. Folks from -all over South
Florida climbed in their cars and
drove by for a look at the well. It
has also spurred interest in other
w-lls being drilled in the state all
the way from Apalachicola to the

The first two Humble wells pro-

quantities, of it, will eventually
come from Florida wells to enrich
the coffers of the state and bring
riches to fortunate citizens on
whose property it is produced.

Joe Paper-Company," said, George.
"My stand with the company is
this: Before the company came
here if I had 25 cents in my pocket
I was: a very fortunate boy, and a
lot of other people were the same
way. But since the company hai
come here the town' has pros.
ered and you people who -are lis-
tening to me have prospered, too.
"If elected as your representa-
tive I Will co-operate with the
company, but I will work for the
.people andi co-operate with the
company to make Port St. Joe and
our county a more prosperous com-
munity. And if the company ap-
proaches me with a bill for the in-
terest of Gulf county I will be for
it, 'but if the lill is for the inter-
est of the company only, I will
be against it."
In regard' to .his stand on labor,
George said: "There is a rumor go-
ing around that. I am against ia-
bor, but there is no basis for It.
When I organized the St. Joe
Stevendoring Company I Lnsisted
that only local union labor be em-
ployed and that all laborers be
from Port St. Joe, not from Pan-
ama City or Pensacola."
In discussing various planks In
his platform, George said: "I will
work toward setting up a perma-
nent school program, including ,
minimum wage for teachers in all
parts of the state and' a 25 per
cent raise in salary for teachers
in Gulf county.
"I am in favor of the present
fiveman commission for Port St.

original bill, there should be ont
candidate running at large for
mayor, so that the people of the
city will be enabled' to choose their
own. mayor by popular vote, not

ter to take care of this matter and
to change the- preesnt messed-up

of 7,010 there were 980 of our

ranks high for any county in the

In regard to the closed season
on fishing now 'in effect, George
pointed out that the fresh water
fishing was the second largest in-
dustry in the north erid of the
county, bringing in many thou-
sands of dollars, but that i.f the
fishing season is closed here in
Gulf county and, parts of Calhoun,
Liberty and Frankln counties arm
left open that the residents of this
county who rely on income from
fishermen are deprived of revenue
while it goes to adjoining counties.
He stated! that he was, opposed to
the present 90-day closed season.
In regard, to lowering the voting
age, George said: "If a boy or girl
is old enough to serve in the
armed forces and fight for their
country, they are entitled to vo'e.
