"Port St. Joe-The Outlet Port for the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee Valley"
PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA THURSDAY, JULY 31, 1958
by Wf$t-.EY R, RAMSEY
We read a little piece the other
day about the man who received
his guidance in life from his mo-
ther-probably while bent across
The Russian bear has been shot
in the tail by a load of rock salt
by Uncle Sam and now they are
yelling "let's talk" while only a

at Geneva. Could it be that Uncle
Sam in his own bungling way, has
finally taken the iniative in the
I caught my wife looking with
interest (for the first time) at a
sack dress. The day she buys one,
I will protest by wearing a pair
of red slim leg britches like Gor-
That would pay her or anybody
back for anything they did to me.
Politics is fixing to get warm
now with the Democratic Commit-
tee of Gulf County setting up dates
for political speaking rallies. These
rallies are usually better than any
television show put out, and we
believe if the politicos could get
together on this thing, they might
find a sponsor to pay their expen-
After talking to most of the can-
didates and asking the universal
question, "how are you running",
we would say that we will have
about six new county commission-
ers, three representatives (with-
out the rigamarole of Constitution-
al revision), five new school board
members and so on. Everybody is
winning, which makes us glad.
If you want to mail a letter for
3c you had better do it today be-
cause tomorrow it will cost you
four pennies. These things don't
bother our peae-, of mind much
though. It is such a comfort to know
that you can still buy something
for only pennies. L
-We were reading in the Reader's
Digest the other day on that popu-
lar subject now, "What's The Mat-
ter with the Railroads". The article
had to do with the problems of a
northern railroad running a train
from Chicago to Minneapolis--a
run that took five and a half
hours. The railroad men are still
paid on a mileage basis for a day's
work. Paying ,on this basis made
the railroad put on three fresh
crews during the five and a half
hour run with the last crew on
working a total of 81 minutes for
a full day's pay. And then there
was a station master in a small
village that worked 51 minutes per
week for his full week's pay.
In the light of this we would say
that if a revamping of railroad
paid outs could be brought about,
the freight rate would be about
half what it is now. Of course the
labor payments are only a minor
portion of their financial difficul-
ties-but it is a sample.

their district tournament in Pen-

winning, they put a healthy scare
into their opponents by nearly de-

better every year. It won't be too
long before they will come home
with the tournament win with their
present rate of improvement.

The affair was a complete sur-

knew she was being honored when
she was called to the front of the
gioup. Miss Minerva McLane, hos-
pital superintendent, said a few
words' about Mrs. Walter's fine, un-
saivish and devoted career as a

time you need her, she is there
ready and able to do the job", Mis.s
Mrs. Walted. co-wokers at the

Lumber Is Subject
Of Rotary Talk
IPerce Fleishel talked to tie Ro-
tary Club last Thursday on his vo.
cation of forestry.
Fleishel said that the profession
of forester, is one of the newest of
professions. He told of some of the
history of forest management from
its recent beginning in 1900.
Fleishel said that in early Ameri-
ca, the tree was considered a nui-
sance and just something that had
to be destroyed for farming to be
carried on. "No important uses
were made of our forests until
the invention of the steam, engine
to power sawmills", Fleishel stat-
ed. "Even then it was considered
that the forests of the United(
States could never be depleted ,so
no care was taken to do so", he
The first management of timber-
lands was innaugurated by New
York state in 1900 when they re-
ated the Adirondack National For-
est. The State forbid cutting traes
in the area. "This was unwise".
'said Flelshel, "because it didn't
utilize the tree crop".
National forests maintained and
operated by the government over-
see the correct harvesting of th.,
mature trees and guarantee an
unending supply of timber.
"Many industries have become
involved in forest preservation",
said Fleishel, "and do a better job
at maintaining a harvestable .ro-
duct than the government. A go.'d
example of this is the many tree
farms over the country, especially
those operated by paper compan-
As a prime example of the m
portance of trees, Fleishel pointed
Make Million Man
The St. Joe Paper Company has
just. completed a milestone never
before equalled in the operation of
the local mill, according to safety
director, W. L. Winters.
The local mill has completed one
million man hours of operation
with no lost time accidents. From
Nov. 14, 1957 to June 1, 1958 the
local mill had run for 1,044,041 with
not a single lost time accidents.
Since that time one man .pulled
a hernia on himself while lifting
an object while on the job and was
off the job for 42 days. This is
the only lost time accident since
November 14, 1957.
The St. Joe mill is second in the
Southern Pulp and Paper industry
mills in safety operations. There
are 64 mills in the association. The
only mill with a better record than
the St. Joe mill achieved their first
place rating only by working more
man hours in the given preiod.
According to Winters, the good
record was not a "happen so" and
as he said this he pointed to the
mill's record over past years. In
1954 the mill had 23 accidents dur-
ing the year costing the mill 7250
days lost per million man hours
worked. This record shows steady
improvement over the years up to
1958 when one lost time aciedent
occurred -costing 42 'days lost per
million man hours lost. The only
fly in the ointment came in 1957
when 23 accidents cost 225 days
lost per million man hours worked.
.Athli ,gh tkere was a comparative-
ly large number of accidents in
1957, none of them were severe
and as a result, very little time
Winters gives credit for the
mill's record in safety to the com-
pany's willingness to take advan-
tage of every safety device they
can to promote safety and the co-
operation of the workers in util-
izing safety practices and devices.
Shifts "A" and "D" will be hon-
ored by the mill next month for
completing a full year of operation
with no lost time accidents.

ter for silage.
One of the best grasses for lawns
is centipede grass. It is a low-
maintenance grass and will provide
a good turf under favorable condi-
tions. It requires little mowing and
fertilization, and is not very sus-
ceptible to disease. A pest known
as ground pearl does attack it, and
there is at present no known con-
trol for this pest. Also, centipede
turns brown in winter. Other low-
maintenance grasses-not so satis-
factory as centipede-are carpet
grass and Bahia grass. Carpet grass
may have a place on low, moist,
relatively acid soils and Bahia is
useful for extensive areas where
low-cost maintenance is needed.

Wet Weather Hampers
Several farmers have grown
corn for making silage at this time,
and the recent rains have caused
some delay in cutting it; the fields
are so boggy that the equipment

is ready for ensiling, and we trust
the weather will permit and these
crops can yet be used as planned.
