of City's Voters
Will Get 'Dead Wood' Off
Books; New Commission-
ers Are Seated
At the regular meeting of the city
commission, the city dads heard the
first reading of an ordinance call-
ing for re-registration of all voters
within the confines of Port St. Joe.
The ordinance provides for the
registration books to open Wednes-
day, November 7, and remain open
from 9 a. m. to 12 noon -and from 2
to 5 p. m. every day except Sundays
and holidays, until 10 days prior to
the holding of the next regular mu-
It is estimated by City Clerk Ben
Dickens that of the 1,540 names on
the books that about 400 of them
are "deaid wood," having left the
city or died. He figures that usually
about two-thirds of the qualified
electors turn out for an election,
which is generally about 750, or ap-
proximately half of those registered.
Final reading of the ordinance will
be on October 16.
The two new commissioners, Clif
ford Tharpe and Watson Smith;
and Mayor Jake Belin were duly in-
stalled, after which the budget for
the ensuing year, as published, was
Ralph E. Rich; past commander
of Willis V. Rowan Post 116, Amer-
ican Legion, and president of the
Gulf County Fair Association, ap-
peared before the board with a re-
quest that the license for the car-
nival being sponsored by the Legion
be Waived. His request was granted,
but the board insisted on assessing
the city admission tax.
Only other matter of importance
coming up was the request of the
West Florida Gas Company to in-
stall a storage tank in the alley
near Rich's Super-Market on prop-
erty owned by E. J. Rich. Since the
gas company has not given a defi-
nite proposal in regard to the mat-
ter, the commission tabled it until
details are forthcoming.

Our Country Right or Wrong
PIG CANCELS WELFARE CHECK
One of the nastiest pieces of bureaucrat ar-
rogance we've seen in a long time is that of the
federal government holding back Florida's old
age assistance fund allocation because of a new
state law permitting a person to have a garden,
one cow, one pig and ten chickens for his own
use without getting his welfare check cut.
Previous to passage of this law a considerable*
number of old folks who had chickens, or a cow,;
or a pig, or perhaps all three, were warned by
district welfare offices to get rid of them. In
fact, we had a couple of cases like that right
here in Port St. Joe, and if our memory serves
us correctly, we editorialized rather strongly
about it at the time.
What do those mealy-mouthed bureaucrats up
in Washington think the old folks are going to
do, just sit around and twiddle their thumbs and
wait for the Grim Reaper to take

As far as the piant or the crop is

may differ greatly. We need to know
fertilizers to make the right selec-
tion for the crop and soil.
Three different major plant food
elements are contained in commer,
cial iertilizer--nitrogen, phosphor-
us, and potassium. All of these
elements are found in the soil, but
sometimes there is too small an
amount in an available form; that
is, the plant cannot get enough for
the best growth and yield. In that
case we can often add commercial
fertilizer of the right kind with
profit. Each of the three ele-
ments has a certain job to do in
producing the crop. One cannot sub-

phosphate added will correct a soil

Just as soils differ greatly in ap

In addition to the major differ-
ences in fertilizer needs among the
general soil areas, the soils within
any one soil area even within a
soil type also differ markedly in
their fertilizer needs, depending
upon cropping history and general
soil management practices used.
Fertilizer experiments cannot be
carried out on every farm. In many
cases, however, a farmer can make
some fertilizer tests in a field by the
use of broad strips of land differ-
ently fertilized. Farmers can often
be mutually helpful by participat-
ing in such simple tests.
Chemical soil or plant tissue tests
made in a central laboratory are
often very helpful as a guide to more
economical fertilizer practice. Ask

Commonwealth Oil Secures Petro-

Gulf county's state-owned water

its fight in 1949 and 1951 to prevent

would 'be taxed, "will not be satis-
fied with defeat. They will try to
tax exempted items in 1953. They
tried to do it in 1951."
He said the most popular amend-
ment ever added to Florida's con-
stitution was the one exempting
for tax purposes all homesteads up
to a value of $5000.
"It has brought more benefit to
more people than any other amend-
ment," he stated, "but despite this
fact there are forces that want to
abolish the exemption. If they can't
repeal it, they want to weaken it.
-Some of them want to reduce it to
$2500 or allow homesteads to be
taxed for school purposes.
"If they are going to change it at
all they should raise the exemption
to $10,000," he said, adding that a
home which cost $5000 when the
amendment was adopted costs al-
most $10,000 now.
The governor then took a slap at
the practice of using "loss leader"
items in merchandising. He told the
grocers that this practice works a
hardship on them. "It creates an

PORT ST. JOE GARDEN CLUB
October is the magic month, when
every day brings fresh energy to
start making the daydreams come
true-dreams inspired by the gay
seed packets and the thoughts of
the bulbs arriving from across land
and sea to find a home in Port St.
Joe gardens. It is the time, too,
when every gardener, as he plants
these treasures in the good earth,
affirms anew his faith in Divine
Goodness which will bring forth
from seeds and !bulbs the green,
leaves and gay blossoms locked
away in these tiny emllemp of im-
October is one of the best months
for seed planting. It is also the im-
portant time \to plant bulbs for
spring blooming. Copious rains of
last month have put the ground in
excellent condition to, plant flower
seeds in the open ground where
they are to grow.
Of course, in spite of mixing the
tiny seeds .with large amounts of
vermiculite or sand to make them
spread out, ,they still come up so
thick that they must be thinned
out. These little plants may be
moved to other beds or borders and
with a little help from a transplant-
ing solution will never know that
they were disturbed.
'Sweet peas should :be planted now
for 'best results.

Here' why Fordomatic
pfs them all in the past
For the past year, auTomotive writers, engineers and owners have been
raving about a new kind of automatic driving ...
and here's why you get it
. ... .....
All the power you need when you need it! It gives you instant "GO"!
fie ^ h Itpractically drives itself!
The automatic drive some cars offer you is a
torque converter which multiplies torque with-
out the use bf gears. Its advantage is a smooth
low of.power. Its disadvantage is a smaller
Sange of torque multiplication which requires
hnore power from the engine and an uneco-
nomical axle ratio which increases costs.
Other cars offer an automatic drive that uses
automatic gears (as illustrated In simplified
form at right) instead of a torque converter.
The advantage here is more "go," more con-
,rol and greater economy. The disadvantage
s that this system is not as smooth, nor as
jerk-free as a torque converter.
See our selection of
/fASo Yes, Fordomatic has a
* torque converter plus automatic:
gears. It brings you only the
advantages of both drives.
Unlike cars with only a torque
converter (which start and cruise
all in one drive gear), Fordo-
motic starts fast and smooth in
Intermediate Gear then shift
itself into Drive Gear.
Fordomatic Drive optional on V-8 models of exira cost. Equip-
ment, accessories and frim subject to change without notice.
