Becker said, that -only one half of
one per cent of Gulf County's land
area is usedto produce harvestable
The professor pointed out the
tremendous percentage of the coun-
ty's land which is in forest-89 per
cent according to 1948 figures.
He said that he had heard it said
that the pines of Florida are worth
more than the oils of Texas. Ho
qualified .this by saying that trees
could be grown over and* over
again, but once an oil supply is
depleted then that is it.
He quashed .growing concern
about the ,population increases by
pointing .out that many European
countries have many more times
the population .per 'square mile than
Florida, yet through conservation
-methods are able to keep their re-
sources plentiful and their citizens
To illustrate, .his point he com-
pared Florida with Denmark -
both countries with approximately
fi-ve million populations. Florida
has 91 persons per square mile
whereas Denmark carries three
times that number.
The conservationist said officials
are predicting that by the year
2,000 the United State's population
will have doubled from its present
180 .million, yet he sees no reason
for concern as long as the county's
resources are handled sensibly.
He pointed out .that Gulf 'County
has grown from a 3,182 population
since its beginning in 1925 to 9,935
according to the 1960 census. Be-
tween 1950 ani 1960 the county's
population rose 33 per cent.
Attributed to the local growth

Pointing out an opposite trend,
Dr. Becker. said Liberty County's
population has ,been on tVe de-

A Coach Writes. .
(Several years ago Marty
Crowe football and basketball
coach at Pacell H. S. In Austin,
Minn., wrote' a simple, hard-hit-
ting letter that created quite a
stir after it appeared in the
"Austin Herald" and then was
reprinted in the "Minneapolis
Star." Everything in his letter Is
till highly pertinent to coaches
everywhere, and we feel sure
you'll appent a fervent amen af-
ter reading it.-Ed.)
Though I'm beginning my 17th
year as a high school coach, this
is the first time I've written a let-
ter of this kind. I write it now be-
cause I'd like to establish a vital

one thing In common-they were'
made up of pretty good kids.
During football season, those kids
practice and drill and scrimmage
in hot weather, cold weather, in
dust, and in rain. They get knocked
down often, they get hurt a little
sometimes, sometimes they get
bawled out, and sometimes they
lose. But the good ones never quit.
Even when the cause seems hope-
less they go on-wet, dirty, kicked
around, weary-but they go on.
And they deserve the praise and
never the raucous condemnations
of anyone worthy of the name of

pecially an easy one-but I like it.
I -work *at it hard, and that's the
way it should be because my kids
work hard, too.
But frankly, I'm fed up now--
and have been for some time-
with that breed of loud mouth who
doesn't work at it at all-who
wouldn't staiid in the mud at a
rainy practice for five minutes-;
but who has plenty to say and al-
ways says it 'with the volume turn-
ed on all the way.
He lays into the boys-or me-
or both. He isn't really interested
in the team. He's rooting for him-
self. He wants to seem smarter
than the coach. Maybe he is, too.
Anybody is smarter with the sec-
bnd guess. Even a coach can sec-
ond guess himself-in fact, all do.
But for the coach, the second
guess doesn't count.
por example, when a pass is in-
tercepted' few coaches 'ned the
strategist in the tlhrd row to tell
them they'd have been better off it
It ha dnot been thrown. But this
bright kind of lad will tell them
anyhow--very loudly-not because
it will help the team-the damage
is done--but ,because it makes
bright boy seem brighter still.
As far as that kiiid of fan goes,
I've, had it up to here. I think most
other coaches feel the same way.
I'm saying. it.
This Afternoon one of my players
came to see m. He: was almost in
tears. He ha&d a problem a good deal
more serious than how to gain
three yards off left -tackle. I didn't
know the solutiabn to -his problem.
I don't think the curibstone quarter-
backs would have klown -tit either.
But the point Is that. the boy
came to me as many others have-
and as they've come to coaches and
teachers throughout the land. He
came to .me for help, and it's my
job ,to try to help him and I shall
That's the best part of my job
-although by far the hardest.
Any coach worthy of his position
is called upon to try to guide his
boys toward manhood. It isn't easy
and- it never was easy-but many
of the answers come harder rgiht
now than they ever did.
The point is .that it's a good deal
more important for the coach to
Guess right on this kind of thing
than .on a matter of whether to pass
or punt. The loud ones can argue
the point if they want to, but they
can't change it.
Any coach can do that pkrt of his
job best whn she has the respect
of his 'boys; and he can keep the
respect of his boys best when he
isn't assailed with the kind of bom-
bast which tries to picture him as
a simpleton or a fool.
We open our football season to-
night and I hope a large number
of the good people of Austin come
out to the game because we have,
once again, a mighty fine group of
boys who've worked hard getting
My boys will try to win. So will
I. We may do it. But it we don't I.
wish the wise ones would stay out
of what hair I have left.
My main job Is still to try o
make decent men out of good boys
-in a world where that outcome
is by no means guaranteed.
I'd like the chance to get at it.

municatIons gap left if a disaster
should knock out or overload regu-
lar telephone and telegraph lines.
The key to the system is a five-
channel radio ,tieup which links
six cities-Pensacola, Tallahassee,
Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa 4nd
Miami. In the test and during a
real emergency, each channel is to
be manned continuously by at
least one operator in each of the
six cities who would send and re-
To illustrate the actual operation
of the system, suppose a hurircane
hit Apalachicola in northwest Flor-
ida and that 100 pints of blood were
needed for the victims. The Apala-
chicola ham could pass the word
along to any of the six key cities
where hams could relay it to some
point where the blood could 'be ob-
tained and sent in.
Actually, Thurston said, most
messages probably would be from
state civil defense and Red Cross
groups. The Red Cross, for exam-
ple, might be asked by persons
outside the disaster area to check
on the safety of relatives in the
* hit city. The Red Cross unit in the
t disaster city would receive the in-
quiry via the network.
Another channel is reserved
mainly for coordinating the net-
work itself and for high .priority
messages dealing with extreme
emergencies. Another is to be used
primarily for civil defense mnes-
sages and weather observer re-
ports. The fourth channel, operated
in. Morse code, would transmit
mostly Red Cross and state govern-
ment messages and weather obser-
vations, and the fifth, a radio tele-
type circuit, still experimental will
carry some Red Cross messages,
and other traffic.
Individual channels in the net-
work have been given warm-up
tests for weeks, but the Oct. 2-8
drill will be the first simultaneous
workout or all.
The amateurs themselves footed
the bill for the network, except
for a few hundred dollars -paid by
the American Radio Relay League,
the nationwide ham organization.
The network is so de-centralized
that it could be operated from vir-
tually anywhere in the state.
