These indignant political shysters
always "take in" a lot of poor dumb
clucks who hoot and holler ap-

a word about the amount of money
the government takes back in the

Mrs. Rush Chism, P.-T. A. presi-

this occasion, and she is looking
forward to a record attendance. The
devotional is to be given by Rev.

They say that stocks of quail and
turkey look good, but that the squir-

We imagine they gather all this in-

the hunting season to open.
Just to refresh the memory of our
local nimrods, we want to remind
them that a "stamp" system will be
uesd this year in taking turkey and
deer. Each hunting license will be
equipped with five stamps, and each f
time the huntsman gets a turkey or
deer he will be expected to tear
one of the stamps off the license.
And by the way, turkey hens will
be protected this year, so watch

As was anticipated, a larger-than-
ordinary number of electors turned
out Tuesday to express their pref-

to the city commission, 661 of the
1,543 registered voters trekking to
the city hall.
The total number of ballots cast
does not give a true picture, since

Watson Smith, seeking re-election
to the commission in Group Two,
had a narrow squeak, being re-
turned to office by the close mar-

Tapper Says Port St. Joe
May Annex Panama City
Speaking before the Panama City
Rotary Club last Friday, Represen-

teners that Port St. Joe is growing
rapidly, adding facitiously that St.
Joe would probably annex Panama
City in the near future if interven-
ing Tyndall Field didn't pose a prob-
Tapper told of the expansion plan
of the St. Joe Paper Company to
triple its production, with the con-
sequent employment of many more
workers, and that the city probably
would have a population of 10,000
in another 10 years.
He also pointed out that the St.
Joe Lumber & Export Company,
which employs about 600, is also a
big factor in the growth of the city,
as is the Southeastern Pipeline Cor-
poration terminus which results in
more tonnage passing through our
port than any other in the state ex-
cept Miami and Port Everglades.
He said that about 42,000 barrels of
oil move through our port daily.
Service Officer Here Today
Bill Linton, Gulf county service
officer, states that he will be in St.
Toe today from 5 to 7 p. m. at the
Legion hall, instead of Saturday.
Any veteran or dependents of vet-
erans may see him then.

Editor Condemns Towns
That Set Up Speed Traps
Also Criticizes Drivers Who Dash
Through A Town Simply
Because It Is Small
Some of the smaller towns in
Northwest Florida long have had
the reputation of "speed traps." Any
motorist passing through one of
these places was supposedly risk-
ing an, arrest and fine if he didn't
slow down to a creep.
John Winslett, editor of the Jack-
son County Floridian at Marianna,
spoke.his mind recently about these
"speed traps." His recital was in-
spired by reports that Alford, in
Jackson county, has become the
newest city to arrest innocent mo-
"It is a known fact," Winslett
wrote. "that many motorists have
been stopped for passing through
small towns and villages at 35 to 40
miles per hour, when the streets
were practically deserted. The In-
sistence on a 25-mile speed limit,
and its strict enforcement, will give
any small town the reputation of
operating a speed trap, which it
obviously is. And the existence of
such conditions hurts not only the
town permitting it, but the entire
county and area."
On the other side of the picture,
Winslett reminded his readers that
there is many a driver "who, ignor-
ing a town simply because it is
small, rushes through its main
street at high speed, confident that
nothing can catch or stop him. The
natural resentment of the townspeo-
ple is also easily understandable."
Winslett goes on: "The town of
Altha, in Calhoun county, was for
years known and often avoided as a
'speed trap," but the nearness of
the school to the highway made ex-
tra caution necessary. You can't
endanger the lives of children and.
get away with it long anywhere.
"A few years ago, a sign was
erected (reportedly by members of
the state road department) outside
the town of Cottondale, which read,
'Warning-Speed Trap Ahead.'"The
sigh was subsequently changed to
read-'Traffic Light Ahead,' :but Cot-
tondale got much unfavorable no-
toriety which it may not have de-
"Since passage of the bill appor-
tioning the state cigaret tax to in-
corporated towns and cities, many
communities (Alford is one) have
resurrected long-dormant charters
and gone back into business as mu-
nicipalities. Others, never chartered
before, have sought and obtained
charters, and are paying a good
portion of their operating expense
from the tobacco bonanza. With the
added revenue from fast drivers,
many of these may be able to con-
tinue municipal operations foi an
"Somewhere 'between the two ex-
tremes of viewpoint lies a fair and
reasonable attitude Itsis to.-:thini-

and the traveling public to see that
everyone's rights are respected.
Whether it's Alford, Marianna, Al-

Florida Council of Home Demon-

of action for 1951-52 which calls
upon each member to aid in build-

phases of home demonstration work.

"The existing situations in each
field were thoughtfully studied by
these women, who formulated their
recommendations in the light of
their analyses," Miss Anna Mae
SSikes, state home demonstration
agent, said. "They considered the
opportunities, problems, needs and
resources in the studies."
Recommendations were made in
the fields of citizenship and civil
defense, child care and family life,
.food and nutrition, food production,
food conservation, marketing and
home industries, 4-H Club work,
health education, safety and fire
prevention, clothing and. textiles,

eral revenue fund of the state.
In June of this year there were
69,323 aged persons receiving as-
sistannce; 70,958 needy dependent
children, and 3,322 needy blind.
In addition to providing assist-
ance to the needy aged, blind and
dependent children, the welfare de-
partment received 1,250 petitions
for adoption for study and recom-
mendation; 1,998 requests for ser-
vices to children; 372 requests from
unmarried mothers for social ser-

Expect Outside Aid In
Event of Modern War
Civil Defense Head Points Out That
Nearby Cities Would Have More
Calls Than They Could Handle
"America's industrial plants, hos-
pitals, schools and other institu-
tions are a vital part of the nation's
resources, and these establishments
are especially vulnerable to the haz-
ards of modern war because they
are geared to peacetime activities
and are, in the main, unprotected, it
is pointed out in a manual titled
'Civil Defense In Industry and In-
stitutions,' just released by the Fed-
eral Civil Defense Administration,"
Col. R. G. Howie, Florida state di-
rector of civil defense, announces.
In the event of enemy attack, de-
pendence could not be placed on
outside aid because civil defense
and community protective services
would probably have more calls
than they could handle, the booklet
points out in a sharp warning to
those who fall under this category.
"To wage war successfully rests
squarely on the shoulders of our
industrial plants and their skilled
workers, our agriculture potential,
and the ultimate productive ca-
pacity, and morale of these work-
ers depends to a great extent on
their safety and the safety of their
families,", Col. Howie declared. "In
order to maintain steady production
and to provide safeguards for life
and property; industrial plants and
institutions must organize for self-
protection. The best way to cope
with disaster is to be thoroughly
prepared to meet it, and any steps
you take now to protect your estab-
lishments will minimize the effects
of a major catastrophe in peace and
"Self-protection," as defined by
this manual, is the concept of or-
ganizing and training small groups
within an industrial or other or-
ganization to perform specialized
services, such as policing or fire-
fighting, to safeguard the plant and
its occupants in time of disaster.
The civil defense self-protection
program is not expected to replace
normal protection. It is designed to
help any industry or institution ex-
pand its services to meet large-
scale disaster more effectively.
The manual further advises that
personnel whose natural talents and
past experience fit them for spe-
cific tasks and whose normal duties
can be safely interrupted should be
selected as key members of a self-

Death Is Expected
Soon, Says Council
Anticipate Statistic To Occur In
December, Perhaps Right
Here In Port St. Joe
Who will be the one millionth
person to die in a traffic accident?
Where will it happen? Exactly
when? The National Safety Council
says the answers to those questions
never will be known.
If the present rate of traffic
deaths continues, some time next
December a child will dart into the
street, a homeward-bound salesman
will try to pass a truck on a hill, a
young couple will hurtle off a curve
on the way to a dance; an old wo-
man will become confused crossing
a stieet-and the millionth traffic
victim will pass unheralded into a
dusty police file.
That vital statistic may happen
in Gulf county, or perhaps right
here in Port St. Joe. Who knows?
But even though the actual iden-
tity of thq millionth victim will re-
main a mystery, the council has
made plans which will enable it to
name the fateful day as a climax to

Cabbage Palm Fifth
Cousin To Corn Stalk
Has No Tell-Tale Rings To Give
Its Age Away, and Has But
One Growing Spot
By CAROL H. BECK
Botanist, Florida Park Service
"Stop calling me a tree," the cab-
bage palm might say if it could
speak. "I'll have you know there's
a difference. I'in almost a fifth
cousin to a corn stalk."
Everywhere the traveler goes in
Florida, cabbage palms nod and
seem to ask: "Don't you wish you
knew miore about me?"
The palms have butone growing
spot-the !bud on the very top of
the stem. This bud will bend to-
ward the light-and. the trunk will
keep that bend for the life of the
During storms or heavy rains, the
wind or high waters knock cabbage
palms nearly over. But it does not
kill them. They merely turn their
heads toward the sun and continue
to grow, with just another bend
Cabbage palms can be seen along
the river at Hillsborough State
Park, near Zephyhills, growing out
from the bank, trunks horizontal
over the water, heads turned up-
ward. In high waters, nothing but
the head shows and it bobs up and
down in the river as if to greet:
The cabbage palm has no tell-tale
rings to give its age away, for its
woody and growing tissues are not
arranged in layers but in strings or
fibers. As the palm grows older, it
grows taller, but its trunk rarely
At last it becomes old and top-
heavy and begins to bend under the
wear and tear of many years in the
open, often making a perfect semi-
circle, as can be observed at High-
lands Hammock State Park, near
Sebring. Then it breaks somewhere
-usually at the weakest spot in the
arc-and its beautiful palm-fronded
head falls to the ground.
