Dr. Booker declared that Junior

Run 941 Shrimp Boats
According to a list just compiled
by the State Board of Conservation,
Florida has 941 shrimp boats in
operation. The boat roster comes
from shrimp landing permits which
every shrimper is required to carry
before he can sell his catch.
The boats, registered with the
Conservation agency in Tallahas-
-see, have such names as Campeche
Gal, Col. Lindbergh, and Snafu. As
might be expected, girls names are
in the majority with 68 boats be-
ginning with "Miss." Elizabeth is
the most popular girl's name, five
boats given this title; and George
is painted on five other boats to
lead boy's names. Names like
Myrna Loy, Old Crow, and Pequod
give some clue as to the interest
of their owners.
Almost half of the shrimp boats
list home ports in other states,
North Carolina being in the major-
ity. There are a number from New
York and Louisiana.
The State Board of Conservation
responsible for salt water fishing
practices, says that shrimp are the
most important product of Florida
waters, a $22 million a year busi-
ness. Most of the shrimp off these
coasts come from the Dry Tortugas,
near Key West. The conservation
agency has been directed by the
legislature to close this area when-
ever the catch averages fewer than
50 beheaded shrimp to the pound.

Miami Editor Recognizes Northwest
Florida As A Part of The State
(One of the favorite complaints of the people of the
formerly "strictly piney woods' section of Northwest Florida
is that the Southern part of the State doesn't realize that we
are quickly coming of age. In the minds of many and of
actual fact in many cases Northwest Florida is more or
less crossed off the State by many South Florida people as
being a liability of the State. Recently, Bill Baggs, in his
column in the Miami News, recognized Northwest Florida
for what it is a hustling, bustling section of an equally
active State. We reprint his comments below.)
Some of these days, perhaps in this century, a great dis-
covery is going to be made in Florida.
The people of South Florida are going to find out that the
people of North Florida are not selfish rubes.
And, the people of North Florida are going to find out the
people of South Florida are not greedy city slickers.
Thus will end, upon this discovery, the bearded myth that
Florida is composed of two parts, one being North Florida and
the other South Florida.
Nearer the truth would be that the two parts of Florida
are the "large counties" and the "small counties". This, however,
is being changed by time. Counties which were small are now
becoming large. They are being introduced to the problems which
visit the larger, urban counties.
Brevard County, for instance. /:
HUNGRY POLITICIANS .
Ten years ago, one might expect Brevard to suspect large
applications tf state road money to build roads in Dade County.
Not today. The road problem in Brevard is as tedious as the
road problem of Dade. Perhaps more so.
The same is true of the growth of many other counties
in this state.
With more than a little accuracy, one could say that the
makers of this myth of North and South Florida were mostly
politicians. Of a certain breed. In some cases, the politicians
were hungry for an issue, and this one came down the drain as
if from Heaven. Out in a small, rural county, the politician could
wiggle a finger in the general direction of Dade and bellow:
"Those city people from New York who live down there are
trying to take over this state."
This sentiment made its im B ression

It's like getting back 15 on every gas dollar!
Here's the biggest savings story of the
year And here's why.
It all starts with Ford's new dream of a
drive called Cruise-O-Matic ... the newest,
most versatile, most automatic of them alll
Two new driving ranges let you choose your
starts for the road conditions that exist. For
example, in most of the driving you'll do,
you can take off lively as a spring lamb if
you wish. And on snow, ice or any slippery
road surface, with the extra driving range
you can get sure-footed starts that are
steady and silky-smooth.
Now, team this all-new automatic with
Ford's new Thunderbird-powered V-8
(with up to 300 hp) and you get as much
as 15% better gas mileage, too! That's be-
cause a special gas-saving rear axle ratio
is used to give you all the savings of "built-
in" overdrive economy.
And based on factory suggested retail
delivered prices, a Cruise-O-Matic Ford is
priced lowest of the low-price three with
So, with Thunderbird go .. down-to-

ally low prices and high resale return .

State Pays Big
"Lawn Mowing" Bill
If you think it costs a lot to keep
your lawn trimmed regularly, just
think what it cost the State Road
Department 'to keep the grass along
our highways mowed.
ILast year it cost almost $800,000
to keep the rights of way along
more than 14,000 miles of primary
and secondary highways neatly
mowed, according to records of the
Road Department's maintenance
division, directed by assistant Sftate
Highway Engineer R. C. Banner-
This tremendous job of grass
cutting took 194 mowing units a
distance equivalent to about 26
times around the earth.
'Maintenance engineers estimated
that 150,000 square acres of grass
adjacent to state highways was
mowed an average of three times-
or the equivalent of a 6 ft. wide
strip of grass 650,000 miles long.

ran across a formula for achieving
happiness suggested by William

House of Representatives in the
middle of the 19th century:
"To live content with small
means; to seek elegance rather

ther than fashion; to be worthy
to study hard, think quietly,
talk gently, act frankly; to listen
to the stars and birds, to babes
and sages with open heart; to
bear all cheerfully, do all bravely,
await occasions, hurry never; in
a word to let the spiritual, unbid-
den and unconscious, grow up
'through the common."

disregarding some of the older for-

satellites. Is speed might and pow-
er the real answer for our security
and happiness as a nation? If that
be true would it not apply to the
individual also? Do you think it
possible that we could be barking
up the wrong tree? Do you think
we hav ea need to conquer the
moon, planets, and stars? Will the
winner of this race actually be the
most powerful and dominating force
in this world. Will man made ma-
chines and weapons decide the fu-
ture course of this world? Is it any
small wonder that the inhabitants
of this wonderful world are anx-
ious and jittery? Does our hope for
peace, security and happiness burn
brightly and rest easy in scientific
discovery and accomplishment? Can
these questions be answered with
a yes or no, or will it take pages

so serious all at once maybe
the need to answer these questions
for me? Well, friends in Northwest
Florida how about giving me a lift?
For every answer you'll receive a

this writer's thanks. Your answer

Let me also call your attention
to the fact you'll discover some of
the most exhilirating styles and
buys of the season at Boyles, the
Happy Cash Store (my wife reports
she has never seen merchandise
roll in so fast). Heard you had a
little extra rest last week and it's
pleasing to hear over the grapevine
that many took advantage of this
breathing spell to Cash In at Boyles
. giving us some of the BEST
days of the year. Thanks again, for
your loyalty and patronage! The
old adage: "It's an ill wind that
blows nobody good" is still at work.
Things may get a little tough at
times but I'll make a bet we'll all
keep on eating, wearing clothes,
*buying and selling and just doing
the things that come naturally. Any-
way you take it, it's sort of an up
and down proposition that aver-
ages out well over a period of time.
And it's my time to close this
rambling. S'long until next time.

we didn't know what to think. One

she told us what the surprise would
