form of a technicality, when it

Kitchens was being tried for

According to testimony given
at the trial, all of the records,

Vote Is Unanimous To Secure Spoil
Areas and Rights-of-Way
Monday night,. before a small gathering of interested on-.
lookers, the county commissioners voted unanimously to ap-
prove and forward the resolution which will permit the Dis-
trict Engineers to proceed with plans for dredging the Apa--
lachicola River. Approval was delayed about a month when
the commissioners, for want of funds and because they fav-
ored dredging the lower Chipola River in lieu of the parallel
but further-removed Apalachicola River, decided at that time
they could not sign the resolution.
The vote as unanimous and ty had no objection to 'dredging"

FULLER WARREN will speak here in Port St. Joe to start off the
1956 political campaign next Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. in front of
the police station on Reid Avenue. Warren will go from here to
Apalachicola and from there to Wewahitchka.
When questioned on this point,
the Clerk of the Court, George Y.
Core, said that he had never
known the Comptroller to tu r n
down a reasonable request.
Tapper then turned to another
point. In 1948, he said, the elec-
ted- officials of Gulf *County had
passed favorably on the Apalach-
icola River dredging project. They
acted in good faith; gave their
word through signing the 1948
resolution, in effect, asking the
engineers to proceed with this
project if and when it was ap-
proved by the Congress.
If the present Board, he con-
tinued, does not support this 1948
action by a previous Board, there
may come another day when
another resolution will come out
of Gulf County requesting such &
such an action. People up the line,
; thought, would be hesitant to
;;a dl the resolution seriously,
feeling, perhaps, it could not de-
oend on a future County Board to
h ,nor any commitments that
might arise because of the resolu-
"More is involved here than a
channel," Tapper concluded. "The
honor of Gulf County is involved
