by WPrt.EY R, RAMSEY
We had an experience to end all
experiences last Saturday when we
got an invitee from the SJPC to
accompany t~e Sharks to the Ga-
tor Bowl in Jacksonville.
Believe you me, that is some trip
despite the fatit that you have to
arise from the bed sheets at 4:00
In the ayem.
We left town. at 4:45 Saturday
morning headed for Jacksonville
with all the boys feeling bright and
We stopped in Tallahassee and
had breakfast at the Trailways bus
station. One of the boys ate six
doughnuts and three large glasses
of *orange juice for breakfast. He
said he had eaten before he left
home so he wasn't very hungry.
By the way, we went in style on
a chartered Trailways bus..
We arrived in Jacksonville about
10;:30 and began riding around
hunting the bus garage to get a
balky windshield wiper fixed. The
boys liked this because they could
see more pretty girls to whistle at.
Every girl on our route in Jackson-
ville had her morale boosted itf one
of those boys saw her in time.
We got to the Seminole Hotel
about 11:00 where we were to eat
dinner. One of the boys who had
been before knew where a penny
arcade was so they all took off to
the penny arcade. At lunch we all
dined on ham with mushroom gra-
vy,.candied yams. green beans, and
homemade biscuits. D-!ssert was
apple pie. :
When, we got to the stadium the
shenanigans really began..
It the Gator Bowl is looking for
their decorative flag bunting, we
can tell them, where it is.
Two or three of the 'boys tried
to get a football, but since there
was 41.000 others there trying to
ge onA too. -hae didn't meet wiLth
During the halftime, Miss Ameri-
ca and the Gator Bowl Queen came
out on the field and paraded to a
chorus of ooh's and ah's. Right in
the middle of this display of fem-
inine ultra-beauty, one of St. Joe's
products shouted, "Hey guys, look
at the doves!"-And sure enough
a flight of doves was going over
the stadium about shotgun high.
Coming back was another adven-
ture till about 9:00, when they be-
gan to drop off to sleep.
One of the boys naturally got -his
pants taken off and principal Le-
roy Bowdoin threatened to warm
the seat of two or three if proceed-
ings in the back of the bus got too
We stopped in Lake City for a
supper that the SJPC had already
Those boys gulped down their
food. which was plenty for any-
body, and started looking for a
drug store. They got about two or
three doors down the street and
saw a restaurant with a pretty
young thing working in it, and all
ganged up at the window and just
stood watching her. The poor SYT
couldn't do a thing, she was so self
All other personnel and custo-
mers in the rTestaurant got a kick
out of it.
After the boys loaded up on can-
dy, milk shakes and other neces-
sary goods to sustain life until
breakfast, we started for home.
We stopped again at the bus sta-
tion in Tallahassee two hours la-
ter to change bus drivers and the
supper had given out already. A
raid on the candy bar and Coke ma-
chine fixed that situation and they
all lasted until we got to St. Joe
at 1:00 a.m. without falling out
it was an enjoyable trip, even
though it did last for a long time.
T.h boys had a great time and
the adults who were in the bus,
Hoover Harrington, James Gunter,
Leroy Bowdoin and myself had lit-
tle to do to keep the charges in
line. They were very well behaved.
Thb game was a corker and the
way those boys were second guess-
ing the coaches of the day, Coach
Craig and Coach Faison have in-
stilled the rudiments of football
iu their heads.
The trip cost the SJPC a pretty
penny, but we believe the boys
got' every cent out of it in enjoy-

In stressing the need for better
utilization and care of Florida's

paper industry was the largest user
of wood in the state.
He showed several colored slides
depicting scenes of unwise cutting
by landowners and sawmills. He
tagged the early saw mill in the
state as being the reason for the
need for vast reforestation now.
The theme of both sawmills and
paper companies now is to preserve
a perpetual supply of wood by wise
harvesting and sound reforestation
Jamison showed slides of trees
suffering from diseases, sound
trees, good harvesting practices,
land clearing for planting purposes
and nursery techniques used in pro-
ducing healthy pine seedlings.
The speaker said that the current
project of paper companies in Flor-

had been reached along this line.
