The coffee shop uptown of

Most anything you want to know
you can learn at the morning ses

or .two, we wandered into the cof-
fee shop with Marty Begley, the big
voice at the radio station and Du-
rel Brigman at the Modern Furni-
ture Co. Pretty soon Otto (Ford)
Anderson walked in the doorway
and stood looking around for a ta-
ble with change laying on the top.
Ours had 37c so he stopped there.
Eventually 'W. C. Roche of appli-
ance store fame wandered in and

For instance, we were practically
the witness for one of the largest
mergers that ever just about came
into being in Port St. Joe.
IRoche and Brigman began talk-
ing ito one another about getting
"Red" Fuller and John Blount to
agree for the four of them to merge
firms and just take over the East
side of 'Reid Avenue. The whole
side of .the block they wanted.
A heated argument began then
about who would getto go fishing
on what day and just who would
mind the business. Roche came up
with a solution. He reported to the
future stockholders that John n
Blount had Doug Baldwin who stay-
ed pretty close to the store and
that would solve the problem of
who would mind the store.
Everything would have gone all-
right, and this morning the East
side of 'Reid Avenue up in the 200
block might now be the home base
of "Big Shot Enterprises, Inc". if
it had not been for one small' item.
Had this gigantic corporation came
into existence and taken up the
aforesaid quarters, they would have
put their coffee shop out in the
street without a roof over their per-
culator and that would have been
the downfall of "Big Shot Enter-

one cup of coffee long and ended
on a note of expectancy with no

The latest report is that national
income rose to a record rate in
the second quarter of this year
in spite of a slump in automobile
sales and farm earnings. This ac-
cording to an official report by
the Commerce Department.
The advance continued an ex-

one year earlier.
What the Department of Com-
merce calls, "compensation of
employees," moved upward for
the ninth consecutive quarter by
four billion dollars.
"Compensation of employees"
is a dry-as-dust term which means
salaries and wages.
Salaries and wages received by
American workers now amount
to an annual rate of 237 billions.
Isn't that something for the

Most of us will just take these

we know the American way of

From the Lincoln Times, Lin-
colnton, N. C.: The wages of the
American workers are at an all-
time high-measured both by the
total national payroll and by the
average paycheck. American
workers get more of the good
things of life, in return for less
labor, than do the workers of
any other country.
These statements are simply
truisms, known to all. But there
is more to the story still-an im-

covering the year 1955, shows
that fringe benefits (pensions and
insurance, vacations and holidays,
etc.) average a whopping $819 per
in a whole year, following its ori-
ginal enactment in 1921. And there
was no federal tax on gasoline then,
or until 1932.
Woodard noted that the present
seven-cent state gasoline tax is ex-
pected to take in a estimated $98,-
900,000 this year, while the three-
cent federal tax will bring total
motor fuel tax collections in this
state to an estimated $134,300,000.

Art of Making
Syrup Is Fading
From The Scene
(Washington County News)
Quality home-grown and proces-
sed cane syrup is going to be scarce
again for another year. In fact, it
may never be plentiful again.
Yields- and quality of vthe 1656
crop have been better than usual,
but cane has been dropped as a
crop on many small family-type
farms. 'That is where the fine art
of syrup-making has been preserv-
ed for generations.
Gone are the days when cane
mills were standard equipment on
many West Florida farms. The
mills, operated by mule-power, were
I used to press the zestfully flavored
juice from the cane. The juice was
then cooked down to a syrup II a
vat or evaporation pan.
An abundance of "fat ligh't'erd",
a fuel otherwise known as fat pine,
simplified the cooking process.
Plenty of the lightwood was usual-
ly found nearby. Now, that, too, is
scarce. Many of the remaining pro.
cessors are using other types of
fuel. Coal and gas seem to be fa-
vored, but they're both expensive
for use in the manufacture of syrup
at any rate.
The scarcity of fuel discouraged
some growers. A scarcity of labor
discouraged others. Competition
from syrup blends, composed large-
ly of a mixture of sugar and water
flavored with cane syrup, added
The result is the disappearance
of cane mills from West Florida
farms and the replacement of home-
produced syrup by a blended pro-
duct on the shelves of grocery
This is cane-grinding and syrup
making season in this area, one of
the Southeast's remaining sugar
cane-growing and syrup-making
strongholds. It is perhaps one of
the few places where the art of
making old fashioned cane syrup
has been preserved on a fairly large
Going To Process
Much of the syrup produced here,
however, will never reach the na-
tion's dining tables in its present
form. It is going instead to the pro-
cessors for blending into a uniform-
ly colored and flavored product.
The syrup ,thus blended is usually
attractively bottled and sold under
the, trade name of the processor.
Mass production of sugar, most of
which is imported, enables it to be
bought much more cheaply ,than'
the old fashioned cane syrup can be
produced on the farms.
That's why the blend, which usu-
ally contains just enough cane sy-
rup for color and flavor, can be
produced more cheaply than the
pure cane syrup itself.
Less Syrup Eaten
A change in eating habits can
be partly credited with the decline
in syrup consumption. The Ameri-
can people are said to be eating
more sweets than ever, but less of
it than ever is being eaten as syrup.
iSyrup destined for the blending
process is stored in barrels at the
farm mills in this area where it is
being produced. The barrels of sy-
rup are then hauled to the proces-
sing or blending plants.
Pure cane syrup destined for the
consumer is usually packaged in
half-gallon or gallon pails. They are
usually labeled with the name of
tue farmer-producer. Most produc-
ers who have stayed in the business
1ake an Intense pride in the qu-htI
ri their product and want to be
sure it is properly labeled.

There is all kind of conjecture
as to what these two products ac-

tExtensive publicity awaits the

manufacture them. The retail as-
