FROM THE EDITOR
The purchase of Colonels Island by Governor Vandiver through the Georgia Ports Authority has a great deal of significance when viewed from the standpoint of future development for Brunswick and the resultant effect such growth will have upon the economy of the state as a whole
It is entirely possible that this purchase could spark a spaceage boom for Brunswick and for Georgia for this location only a little over 200 miles from Cape Canaveral by water is ideally suited for such industry If the persistence patience and hardwork of A M Harris Sr Authority member from Georgias Ocean Port and others of that citys leaders means anything then the future of this boom is assured
Through at first glance the story on page 6 concerning the new electronic equipment installed by the Savannah Pilots Association and Atlantic Towing Company on their vessels might not appear to have historic proportions a closer look will tell the interested reader of the significance of their lectronic leap and its position as an historic first for Savannah harbor
For their August meeting the Atlanta Transportation Club heard a program arranged by their general category members who include the Georgia Ports Authority representatives thus the railroaders and truckers heard Inland Waterway Authority Braxton Carr plead the case of the water carriers as it opposed the present move of the railroad interests to eliminate minimum rate regulation on bulk and agricultural goods transportation As was to be expected the railroaders and the truckers listened attentively and the general category members led the cheering section All in all it was a fine meeting and a good forum from which the waterway operators could express a sound argument

IECTRONIC LEAP FOR SAVANNAH
gb
m
The Savannah Bar Pilots Association and the Atlantic Towing Company have joined forces to give Savannah Harbor an electronic edge over piloting and towing companies servihg other ports of the United States
With the installation of a new VHF marine radio system recently devised by General Electric for Frequency Modulated broadcasting and receiving ship operations may now be controlled from the office the tug or the pilot boat according to Frank W Spencer of Atlantic Towing Company and Captain Joseph V Ryan Master Pilot
This communications system effectively replaces the old whistle signals required previously for controlling the tugs by the pilot when docking and undocking ships Captain Ryan said
In addition due to the speed and availability of ship arrival information labor crews may be more efficiently scheduled by shipping companies arrival time of ships from the bar can be more accurately foretold and changes in instructions between pilots and tugmasters can be expeditiously handled Mr Spencer added

Captain Missroon tugmaster of the Savannah responds to call from Frank Spencer in office Pilots and ATCO share offices in Savannah Another transmitting station is located at the ATCO dock office Both pilot boats are now equipped with the equipment as are ATCOs tugs
L to rs Captain Joseph Ryan of Savannah Bar Pilots Association Ralph Day General Electric representative who installed the equipment and Frank Spencer of Atlantic Towing Company give equipment trial check after installation This new equipment is not used by other harbors in area served by Savannah port and it is not in frequent use yet in the nation
Continued from page 6 n When we relied on whistle signals
alone it did not behoove a pilot to make k a change in his instructions or try to countermand an order after he had just
given it Confusion would have resulted Captain Ryan pointed out He had to complete that order and then give an
other one This lost some time However now he can give an order talk with the
tugmaster as the order is being carried out modifying it slightly as the need
K arises
v j The new system is not utilized anywhere else in the area served by the t Savannah port and only a little in the nation The full use of the equipment in 1 Savannah in addition to a more recent
purchase of eleven portable transceivers which the pilots may carry on board I ships with them assures Savannah Harbor of having one of the most efficient I pilottug operations in the United States

sentative who installed the new equipment said the Federal Communications Commission is now making a study which would require the new system on all commercial vessels
Its advantages include little or no interference with transmissions excellent equipment life small space required and relative low cost for maintenance The total expenditures for all units installed on all pilot boats and tugs is approximately 3000000 This includes the portable units purchased recently
Four channels have been assigned the tugs and pilots in the 156 and 157 megacycle FM bands They are 1 calling in distress 2 ship to ship 3 Atlantic Towing for harbor operations and 4 Bar pilots for use on the pilotboat at the harbor entrance
The new equipment will be used also with commercial vessels which already have it installed For those ships without it the pilots and tugs will still use the
older communication equipment
All tugs docking and undocking vessels at the Georgia Ports Authority terminals and others on the Savannah River are now using this new system according to Mr Spencer The NS Savannah was pushed smoothly to its berth by ATCo tugs using the equipment on August 22nd when the atom ship visited its home port to be placed into service
In summarizing Captain Ryan said What this means for Savannah and those shipping lines whose ships visit here is a dramatic increase in the efficiency of pilotage and tug operations offered here This system will be like having a direct telephone line available at the touch of a button When we first sight a ship in the distance we through proper use of the equipment will be able in many instances to save ourselves and other shipping interests in Savannah more than the pilotage costs

SPACE AGE BOOM
FOR GEORGIA
Time 176 years of it and tide joined forces to make the 760 colonial acres called Collonels Island granted to one James Forrester on February 3 1767 grow to its present 1800 acres of high ground admirably suited for missile and other heavy industry
An old framed Slave Indenture still hanging in the picturesque retreat used by former owners also framed the antique treasure map pictured above
The map recorded by D Z Mazyck on the 28th day of September 1786 spans the years dramatically recalling like some treasure maps of old the charm of Georgias early history and the hope of modernday inhabitants for industrial treasure to comeboth for Brunswickans and for all Georgians

Editors NoteGeorgia faces an unprecedented industrial growth during the next four years This will be even more accelerated if spaceage industries come here The purchase of Colonels Island near Brunswick may serve to ignite the space boom This article analyzes Brunswicks potential following that purchase
For years the leaders of Brunswick Georgias Ocean Port looked at the areas new industrial site on nearby Colonels Island and sighed with frustration
It was privatelyowned capital available for its proper development into a prime industrial site was unavailable and local efforts and resources designed to get control of the island had been unsuccessful
Colonels Island had proved elusive to obtain and impossible to sell to industrial prospects under these prevailing conditions
Then with dramatic suddenness all of this changed
A M Harris Sr Brunswicks member on the Georgia Ports Authority had been waging a quiet yet tenacious campaign to interest other Authority members members of the Ports Committee of the General Legislature and Governor Ernest Vandiver in purchasing the island and developing it

His arguments were forceful and they were given aided impact by a recent trade mission to six of Europes Common Market countries led by the Governor and by the increasing interest in the area by spaceoriented industries looking to quick water access to nearby Cape Canaveral in Florida
In Europe Governor Vandiver was impressed by the intensive development which characterized the ports visited and he noted the high cost of land developments as further ports expansion was needed The foreign states visited had traditionally pushed their ports as integral parts of their national development and as they had grown these ports had made material additions to their respective economies
Such was the power of the arguments presented by Mr Harris coupled with 1 a recommendation by the Ports Committee of the Legislature 2 a solid recommendation by the Ports Authority and top Brunswick leaders and 3 the insights gained in Europe that Governor Vandiver speaking to some 40 leaders of the Brunswick community in Atlanta on August 15 1962 said
I have personally been to Brunswick and seen the limited area for expansion presently available there I have seen the great ports of Europe on the recent trade mission which I led and I noted then the limited land available for ports expansion and the high cost of it After talking with Chairman Bob Norman and Myd Harris Sr of the Georgia Ports Authority who tell me the Authority

With this in mind I am happy to announce I have authorized the purchase price of 1100000 to be set aside for the immediate purchase of Colonels Island and further I have directed that 1500000 additional be allotted to proceed with immediate development of this site

Leaders also looked to this site and others now under review by industries to bring to Georgia a larger share of the nations billiondollar expenditures being spent to feed the space boom As reported by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration for the period from mid1960 to mid1963 Georgia received only 181 million of the total of 66 billion spent only a small fraction of what she could expect if large space industries settled here
It is further estimated the newlydeveloped moon effort will greatly expand these expenditures and at the present time Georgia has an excellent chance to obtain its share of this new program

industries Thiokol Chemical Company publicized its judgment in favor of some 2500 acres of Georgia land near Camden County close to Colonels Island by water With option to purchase renewed for a year spokesmen for this company told press representatives in Atlanta We have looked at literally dozens of prospective sites along the Atlantic seaboard and along the Gulf with access by water to Cape Canaveral This site we have selected is the finest among those surveyed
If successful in their bid for the business Thiokol will assemble and test the giant booster stages for the moon rocket the giant NOVA SolidFuel Booster
When assembled and tested these engines will be barged to Cape Canaveral from the Camden county location
Already other prospective site purchasers in other related space programs are looking over the Colonels Island site and judging from the queries received other visitors will be coming shortly

call for dredging to deepen and widen the existing channels to prescribed depths M Engineering reports suggest the location of proposed docks will assure a minimum ck of maintenance dredging following the the initial work due to the sweep of the tide at this point
On the opposite side of the island the Satilla River provides 15 to 20 ft depths more than adequate for efficient barge operations direct from the inland water V way and the Atlantic Ocean a point that will not be overlooked by companies continued on page 14

E J Gayner 3rd President General Manager Brunswick Pulp Paper Company
Brunswick Pulp Paper Company is expanding its existing mill by an expansion in excess of 35000000 This will double the size of the pulp mill and will for the first time add a board machine for the production of products generally in the category of foodboard tag stock and index All of the new production will be 100 fully bleached as is the existing production The construction payroll and monies spent locally during the construction period have
been a considerable boost to the economy of southeast Georgia and of course to the State of Georgia It is estimated that after the new facility is in operation an additional 9000000 per annum in the form of new payrolls new wood purchases and inbound freight payments will be added to the economy of Brunswick Glynn County and the State of Georgia
The Company has been happy to risk this considerable new money in Georgia
because of the friendly government business and community climate of Georgia and Glynn County New markets an expanding port honest governments of people who value honesty and integrity and a real spirit of friendliness make Georgia a good place to expand I am personally very gratified that those associated with us in the Brunswick Pulp Paper Company were willing to spend this kind of money in Georgia

Governor Ernest Vandiver I am convinced that if Georgia is to realize its full destiny as a great and aggressive state its ports cities must be given every opportunity to expand and grow Colonels Island provides Brunswick with a means to break a deadlock on available land for industrial growth
Hon Ernest Vandiver Governor State of Georgia
GovernorElect Carl Sanders I have promised the people of this state that we will experience an industry growth unparalled in the history of Georgia during my administration I shall give every support to industrial prospects interested in Brunswicks Colonels Island and any other of the many fine industrial locations in this state
Hon Carl S Sanders GovernorNominate State of Georgia
Robert C Norman Chairman
Georgia Ports Authority Colonels Island is one of the few prime industry sites remaining on the Atlantic Seaboard This 10000acre site is doubleblessed with ample deepwater shorelines on the Brunswick side and very adequate barge depths on the oceanside of the island Thus this island should appeal to many spaceage companies and to many others now emerging in the growing petroleum and petrochemical fields
A M Harris Sr Authority Member Brunswick Georgia The leaders of Brunswick are unanimous in their support to develop Colonels Island as rapidly as possible Governor Vandiver has purchased this island and provided another 1500000 for its early development We of the Georgia Ports Authority will be happy to provide interested executives with full details concerning this island and its potential as an industry site
Hon A M Harris
Member Georgia Ports Authority Brunswick
Hon Robert C Norman Chairman Georgia Ports Authority
emerging into leadership in the petroleum petrochemical liquid asphalt arid other chemical fields
For ship captains and shipping lines looking to fast turnaround with easy access to facilities the new Colonels Island facilities will provide facilities practically on the ocean front Barely 15 miles from the bouy marking the entrance to the Port of Brunswick only two turns in the channel will be required before reaching the turning basin serving this island
Good Neighbors
Brunswicks favorable factors influencing location by the nations most respected industries has already proven irresistible to wellknown Georgia plants
Here is located the huge Brunswick Pulp Paper Corporations mammoth plant which has just completed an additional 37000000 expansion program Such expansion indicates confidence in the state and region by executives of this company a fact brought out by Mr E J Gaynor President on page 13 of this issue
Hercules Powder Company longtime resident of Brunswick now boasts over 700 employees and is a strong user of Brunswicks growing state port facilities
BestWall Gypsum Company whose interest in the use of bulk offloading facilities was largely responsible for the erection of a 2000000 terminal 500 lineal feet long with a grabbucket rated at 600 tons per hour This facility can offload a 20000ton ore vessel in 65 hours
BabcockWilcox Corporation Solvay Process Company Concrete Products Inc Dixie Paint and Varnish Company and the Georgia Power Companys new plant McManus on Crispin Island point to a burgeoning and diversified industry for Brunswick
Future Bright
Brunswick has grown 44 percent during the past ten years and its population is expected to double by 1970 Principal characteristic among these workers is the high percentage of them with educational backgrounds suitable for skilled and semiskilled employment
With a population expected to double by 1970 Brunswick has already begun to lay important foundations for training and educating its youth with strong emphasis on scientific and higher educational studies
In October a junior college costing some 1000000 has been authorized by the General Assembly and a Science Center promoted by Brunswicks forwardlooking leadership will be built The latter facility will cost some 1000000

THIOKOL CHEMICALS PROPOSED SITE BOOM TO BRUNSWICK
Thiokol Chemical Corporations option to purchase considerable acreage in Camden County nearby to Colonels Island Brunswick and the new and modern general cargo berths now built there by the Georgia Ports Authority will have a tremendous effect upon that port city
The Thiokol site lies only a little under 200 miles from Cape Canaveral Much of the heavy equipment and materials necessary to put this plant into operation and to keep it operating will come through the Brunswick dock facilities according to Thiokol officials
In addition a boom in residential housing should result from the large number of families who will come to the area to work in the plant and a harvest of dollars should also accrue to
the area as these families come to Brunswick and Jekyll Island for fun and recreation
What is most important the location of a spaceage plant in Georgia like Thiokol will bring in a number of supporting industries many of which are already casting approving eyes on Colonels Island bought November 30th by the Georgia Ports Authority
The schematic diagram below outlines in the main the areas of primary construction and the additional areas needed by Thiokol if they secure a sizeable space contract This company has cast its lot with Georgia and all Georgians can hope that the petition this company has made to NASA will be heard and positively rewarded

CITYS NEW RIVAL MEANS BUSINESS
800STUDENT SCIENCE CENTER JUNIOR COLLEGE SCHEDULED
Editors Note Following is an editorial written in the Florida Times Union Jacksonville Fla that quite candidly points out the blessing that the purchase of Colonels Island by the Georgia Ports Authority may be for the people of Brunswick and it clearly points out to executives of prospective plants many of the plusfactors pinpointing Brunswick as an excellent site for their next plant
Jacksonville has a new rival in its bid to become a symbol of the New Souths industrial development and economic expansion That rival is the neighboring city of Brunswick which is about to gain a decided edge in the port development phase of the competition
Two events in Brunswick this week demonstrated the point At some date before next Wednesday Georgias Governor Ernest Vandiver has announced the state will exercise its option to purchase Colonels Island near Brunswick and launch a large port and industrial development program Related in a broader sense will be the other eventa call for bids on August 30 on an elaborate science building for Glynn Countys public high school
Such news as this serves notice that Brunswick is becoming a tough rival for Jacksonville For the last 50 years Brunswick has been regarded as a place rich in historical lore more than as a symbol of the New Souths progress Brunswick had Sea Island a fine resort and playground of the rich It had historic St Simon where Oglethorpe established the town of Frederica in 1742 where the battle of the Bloody Marsh was fought where John Wesley preached under a big oak tree Brunswick had its beautiful marshes described in Sidney Laniers The Marshes of Glynn
Now Brunswick is coming alive with activity The new Science Building for Glynn Academy will be a model of efficiency It will be air conditioned enabling tuition students to participate in a summer program leading to graduation in three years Most important it will encourage boys and girls to embark on careers in science Some of them perhaps will find careers in new industries on Colonels Island
The state project calls for purchase of the land for 11 million and the spending of another 15 million to develop port facilities and industrial sites The island is located on deep water near the Atlantic and is served by highway US 17 Interstate 95 also may cross the island
Students of Glynn Academy demonstrate interest of Brunswickans in accelerating their educational emphasis on scientific studies to prepare their children for the space ages ahead
A 750000 Science Center now under construction is set for opening in September 1963 It will handle up to 800 students a year in modern lecture rooms and laboratories emphasize applied and physical science studies
Acting upon an earlier endorsement by the Board of Regents the erection of a 1000000 Junior College to house 300 students is now a certainty upon the sale of the bond issue this December
This college will be operated by the University of Georgia System upon completion
Both of these projects have been provided for by the people of Brunswick and Glynn County Funds for construction have resulted from local bond issues approved by the people of the area
Brunswick already boasting a population with a high concentration of skilled and semiskilled workers will thus be further aided in preparing its younger generations to take their places in the industries which may be coming to Brunswick in the near future

R C NORMAN SELLS GEORGIA TO CALIFORNIA
Robert C Norman Chairman of the Georgia Ports Authority accompanied Governor Ernest Vandiver and Governorelect Carl Sanders on an industry hunting trip to California recently
The trip featured a series of luncheons dinners and special meetings with top executives to whom the benefits of an industry location in Georgia were carefully explained
California is the hub of the giant aircraft and space age industries Mr Norman said Executives of many of these firms had expressed a keen interest in Georgias coast and in potential locations adjacent to our deepwater ports principally because of our nearness via water to Cape Canaveral
We went out there to present firsthand knowledge of Colonels Island and Whitehall Plantation to the decisionmaking executives of these concerns he concluded
Other state officials making the trip included Jack Minter Director Georgia State Department of Commerce and Charles Evans Industrial Representative Georgia Department of Commerce
The trip was sponsored by the Industrial Development Council of the Georgia State Chamber of Commerce

have to be built to handle the shipping these new industries will generate
In further remarks Mr Trippe traced the growth of Georgias ports the recent trade mission to Europe and the Common Markets impact on U S ports
Move Strongly Ahead The Georgia Ports Authority has moved strongly ahead with its ports development and expansion aided by the farsightedness of Governor Ernest Vandiver and others among our states administrative leaders so that a continuing increase in the volume of cargo and numbers of ships will be experienced at Georgias ports
We have 18 berths in operation now and by mid1963 we will have 21 new modern berths in action
Further Mr Trippe pointed out To assure ourselves of an increasing role in the development of foreign commerce through our ports we visited Europe to gain firsthand knowledge concerning our problems there and our contacts are now our first line of offense in bringing foreign shipments through our ports

FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
The Georgia Tufted Textile industry through its leaders in the Tufted Textile Manufacturers Association have played a most impressive role in the growth of Georgias economy over the past 10 years and have provided an important impetus to the recent development of Georgias port facilities at Savannah
This relatively new industry begun on a Georgia farm by its founder Mrs Catherine Evans Whitener in 1895 now exceeds 700000000 in annual sales boasts of 46 manufacturing plants employing the most modern machinery and methods
J D Holt
That this industry has contributed greatly to the growth statistics of the Georgia Ports Authoritys facility at Savannah may be realized most fully by considering that jute imported through Savannah in fiscal 196162 totalled 822 million linear yards valued at 25800000
Georgia Ports Authority has worked closely with the leaders of this industry to provide them with port facilities and service that assures them of an uninterrupted supply of jute and burlap at reasonable
a COStS
To this spectacular industry we dedicate this issue of Georgia Anchor Age As the tufting industry continues its growth the Georgia Ports Authority with over 18600000 newly invested in modern facilities will continue to offer its every effort to help it meet its goals

GEORGIAS PORTS AID IN THIS INDUSTRYS PHENOMENAL GROWTH
Teii years and 662000000 ago the Georgia tufted textile industry grossed only 38000000 a year in total sales volume Centered around Dalton stretching on a line from Chattanooga to Atlanta this industry had realized a slow but steady growth following its founding by Mrs Catherine fcvans Whitener on a Georgia farm in 1895 But then it came of age
Today jute backing for this industry is the leading import at the Georgia Ports Authoritys Garden City Terminal in Savannah and that port city is in fact the leading port in the world in the import of jute from India and other countries

four years and indeed the demand for adequate port facilities to service this and other Georgia industries played an important part in setting the stage for the 18600000 in ports expansion and development allotted during the past four years of the Vandiver administration
That the Authority has worked hard to understand and solve problems of import supply for the tufters is highlighted by a spokesman of the tufted industry who wrote The Georgia Ports Authority now provides a specialized service in the handling of jute with the most modern equipment besttrained personnel and safest handling of any port we use
Tufters have also expressed pleasure over Authority handling of damaged load rewrapping storage of jute rolls

at the Garden City warehouse until drawn for use by 46 tufting firms and plans announced by the Authority to provide a special rolling machine to further facilitate handling for the industry
Forecasts on annual sales for the next ten years have been conservatively set at 1 billion dollars a year by the end of that period To support this growth jute backing for carpeting and other products must be received in even greater quantities 822 million linear yards were delivered during fiscal 196162 with a dollar value exceeding 25800000
With over 10600000 spent recently for new facilities in Savannah at Garden City Terminal and at Ocean Terminal the Georgia Ports Authority with 19 deepwater berths slated for active use by mid1963 will be wellequipped to continue its topflight service for this expanding Georgia industry

Tufted Volumesh
The Tufted Textile Manufacturers Association TTMA headquartered at Dalton Ga reports a growth in dollar volume for the past two years 1960 and 1961 of 143 million an increase of 37 over previous figures
With an increase of this size the tufted industry runs among production leaders in Georgia in percentage increase Of greater importance the boost
to the states economy rendered through the creation of thousands of jobs the tax dollars paid into state treasuries and the millions added to the value of the states manufactured products are immeasurable
The major use for the jute backing imported through Savannah is for tufted carpets This part of the industry has increased over the past 10 years from
19 million in sales to over 383 million boosting Georgias shareofmarket nationally to 62
Jute was first used in 1793 as a substitute for hemp and flax Walltowall carpeting high fashion sportswear and railroad car brake pads now number among the wide variety of products manufactured by the Georgia tufted industry

OLD MAN RIVER
NOW ALEBE DEEP
Augusta Kiwanians Hear Good New
From GPA Chairman Robert NormafL
The chant of tot dat barge lift dat bale may soon ring forth anew along the banks of the old Savannah River
In contrast to the days of old when cotton was king the barges of this modern era will be carrying such vital commodities as bulk chemicals iron steel bricks and new improved fertilizers
The rebirth of barge traffic on the Savannah and the extension of its effectiveness to the upper portion of the river is the result of work being done by the US Army Engineers to deepen the river channel to a suitable depth for commercial vessels
Robert C Norman Chairman of the Georgia Ports Authority in a recent speech before the Augusta Kiwanis Club revealed that the Corps of Engineers has stated they are now in a
position to assure a minimum depth of eight feet the year round This depth wilk be obtained by additional dredging and construction of additional contraction works which will be commenced shortly and completed during this summer x Col Jack R Harris US district engineer in Savannah said Normanv informs us that if the eightfoot depth is required prior to the completion of the channel an additional flow will be released from Clark Hill Dam in sufficient time to meet barge requirements The additional work is being accomplished as a result of numerous inquiries which the Corps of Engineers has received from potential shippers and manufacturers commented Norman

We of the Georgia Ports Authority feel that this information will provide the assurances necessary in our efforts to Attract new traffic on the Savannah River ne ihdustriesto our state and the Augusta area the GPA Chairman told the Augusta Kiwahis Club
pvyith the rcent guarantee by the Corps of Engineers of an eight foot chanfeplOO pe ceht of the time and with the additional Work soon to be initiated the primary bottleneck to increased river usage has been eliminated
Norman told this audience This additional means of transportation available to shippers and to industry both old and new will assure a healthy competitive situation among the three major methods of distribution truck rail and barge
REVETMENT WORKS ALONG SAVANNAH RIVER BELOW AUGUSTA GA This is a typical series of structures pile dikes built along the Savannah River to stabilize a 9foot channel The Savannah District Army Engineers anticipate receiving additional funds in order to accomplish necessary dredging work and construction of similar structures to further aid stabilization of the channel It is hoped that funds will be received in time to begin work before the end of the fiscal year 30 June 1963

PENTHOUSE CLASSROOM OFFERS EXPORTUNITIES
What makes a man leave his wife and family and go out into the night
In the case of some forty Savannah area businessmen it was the desire to learn the ins and outs of How to Get Started in Export
Every Wednesday evening for six weeks these men gathered in the Penthouse of the First Federal Savings and Loan Building in downtown Savannah to dig into the meaning of such phrases as letters of credit marine risks consular invoices and many others
These were the word tools they would need to build an effective and profitable future for their company in this fast growing area of our nations economy
Because they realized the potential they came they listened they took notes and they did their homework

The Savannah foreign trade course on How to Get Started in Exporting is just one of many courses being conducted throughout the south to stress the urgency for increasing exports
The U S Department of Commerce is making a special effort to encourage new and prospective exporters to increase their sales abroad Our economic future depends on it
Although the word seminar may
seem dull and uninspiring interest in this method of sharing ideas and hearing firsthand experiences is growing Its effectiveness in the case of the Savannah foreign trade course is much in evidence
Shortly after the close of the six weeks course which was jointly sponsored by the US Department of Commerce Georgia Ports Authority Savannah District Authority Savannah Re
gional Export Expansion Council and Small Business Administration a letter was sent to each of the participants
The letter from the Commerce Departments Savannah Field Director Joseph G Stovall asked for an evaluation of the course and for an indication as to whether the group would like to continue to meet at regular intervals The response was excellent

New Experience
For many of the participants How to Get Started in Exporting course was a new experience Most of them felt that exporting was strictly for the big boys Fortunately they realize now that there is profit available also for the little guy
Purpose of the overall program was to give these businessmen the information and technical data they needed to enter this field In planning the course top specialists were called in from many organizations companies and institutions
Topics covered during the sixweeks included Finding an Export Market The Trade Expansion Act and What It May Mean to You Direct and Indirect Exporting U S Trade Centers Abroad and Trade Fairs Financing Your Export Trade Export Insurance Credit Letters Time Draftsin short all facets of exporting
There is a tremendous potential for individual company profits in Exporting said GPAs Executive Director J D Holt in speaking to the group and I urge you as small businessmen to take the initiative in following through on what you have learned during these six weeks
This is a growing market for all of us said Holt we must be equal to the challenge

A NEW FRONTIER FOR
BULK LIQUIDS
No Job Too Little Nor None Too Large99 Boasts Southland Terminals
Largest deepwater storage terminal in the Southeastthat was our aim and thats what we have accomplished says Norman A McGee dynamic fastmoving President of Southland Oil Corporation and its subsidiary Southland Terminalsall located on properties owned by the Georgia Ports Authority at the Garden City Terminals Savannah Georgia
McGees claim is no idle boast for Southland Terminals has deepwater storage facilities for McGee bulk liquids of 1235000 barrels in 32 tanks
ranging in size from 5000 barrels up to 8000 barrels including both fixed and floating roof tanks
Important as the facilities may be they are useful only as long as they serve some useful purpose The variety of products currently being handled by the Southland Terminals includes turpentine fatty acids pinene zyolene hexane alaphatics aeromatics jet fuel avgas distillate fuel kerosene and motor fuels According to McGee the Terminals can handle any product that flows
Judging by the size and operation of Southland Terminals today one would think it was a long time abuilding Not so Southland Oil Corporation and its subsidiarySouthland Terminalsis a relative Johnnycomelately The property on which these modern facilities stand was in 1950 a muddy field and an idea in the fertile mind of President McGee
MAY 1963
Tanker makes hookup at GPAs Thead pier Southland can discharge at this terminal up to 6000 barrels per hour depending on commodity handled BELOW a battery of 10 inch cargo lines carry bulk liquids from shipside 1200 feet to Southlands main storage facilities
A Bleak Outlook Becomes A Rosy Prospect
Stymied for a while in his building plans by the Korean War McGee quickly turned a bleak outlook to a rosy prospect by securing a government storage contract which in turn landed him a priority permit for steel delivery This initial contract was a minimum putthrough storage of 460000 barrels of avgas with a guarantee of three turnovers per year
The government subsequently asked McGee to build an additional 460000 barrel capacity to furnish avgas to the Navy This brought the Southland Terminals a total of 19 tanks all under contract for military supply
In 1955 McGee added 160000 barrels to his storage capacity by building three new tanksfor gasoline kerosene and fuel oil In 1956 we had to add
80000 additional barrels storage to maintain a balance of stocks the youthful president said We did this by building one tank and juggling some of the government storage
While the military can be thanked for filling the breach in the steelscarce Korean War days and for subsequent storage contracts with Southland Terminals it almost caused a catastrophe in 1960 when an entire Strategic Air Command wing was moved from Savannahs Hunter Air Force Base and the government handed 545000 barrels of storage back to McGee
This emptied nine tanks that McGee could have used in 1955 when he began his open market operation but which in the meantime had seen the building of additional storage units to take care of Southlands spreading retail volume
What might well have spelled doom for the fainthearted only spurred oilman
Nonpetroleum products are transferred to carrier such commodities as turpentine fatty acids and lands petrochemical tanks
McGee to look for a wider diversification which he quickly did by filling available storage with turpentine for a local paper mill pinene for a naval stores manufacturer and fatty acids for a paint manufacturer
McGee pointed out that bulk liquid storage facilities are immediately available for anyone desiring to utilitize these facilities
Storage And Handling Capabilities Expanded
Southlands main storage facilities are located 1200 feet from deepwater with 10inch cargo lines from docks to tanks
Workmen check Heptane storage tank as tanker discharges Avgas in the distance Thead pier can handle tankers up to 700 feet drawing 33 feet of water
Southlands Terminal at Garden City near Savannah includes 32 storage tanks similar to one shown here Some of these are available for immediate bulk liquid storage

Southland has served as many as 26 military ground and air installations with petroleum products Cars or trucks can be loaded at rate of 600 GPMs
Tank trucks load up with SOC fuel for distribution to Southlands more than 160 retail service stations located throughout the Southeastern United States
Sixinch lines run from tanks to a 24station tankcar loading rack and a 4station truckloading rack A 10station rack near the petro chemical tanks handles the nonpetroleum products
Through its modern facilities Southland can discharge cargos up to 6000 barrels per hour depending on commodity handled and can load tank cars or trucks at a rate of 600 GPMs
McGee says Southland can receive store and ship by tankers barge rail and truck The GPAs Liquid Products Docks have 32 feet depth at mean low water with a tide average of 7 feet Tankers up to 700 feet drawing 33 feet of water
have been handled by Southland which has handled over 55million barrels of liquid commodities since locating on the Georgia Ports Authority property
Southland proudly boasts that there is no job too little nor none too large for
them to handle
So what was a muddy field and the germ of an idea slightly over a decade ago is today the largest deepwater terminal in the Southeast It could only happen in America
We Can Handle Anything That Flows this statement by Southland Terminal President N A McGee is vividly illustrated by identification markings on 10inch cargo lines at GPAs Thead Pier

The Governor emphasized three major actions of the recent legislative session that are designed to stimulate economic development They are
Exemption of industrial machinery from the three per cent state sales and use tax
The authorizing of counties to issue industrial revenue certificates to build and equip manufacturing plants for firms desiring to locate in the state
Enlarging the powers of the Georgia Ports Authority to issue revenue certificates to build and equip facilities
for industries using the ports
Sanders further pledged that the new State Department of Industry and Trade will be developed into a skilled professional agency staffed by experts capable of observing every aspect of the present and future needs of Georgia business and industry

Three River Development
A farreaching program to develop the ApalachicolaChattahoocheeFlint river system for navigation flood control power stream flow regulation and recreation is nearing completion Started in 1947 the program is scheduled for completion this year
The development includes improvement of the Apalachicola River and the construction of four dams the Jim Wopdruff Lock and Dam on the Apalachicola River near Chattahoochee Florida the Columbia Lock and Dam on the Chattahoochee River near Columbia Alabama the Walter F George Lock and Dam on the Chattahoochee River near Fort Gaines Georgia and the Buford Dam on the upper Chattahoochee River northeast of Atlanta
The dredged channel in the Apalachicola River and the Jim Woodruff and Buford Dam were put in operation in 1957 so that the valley has been enjoying substantial benefits from the development since that time
The Apalachicola River channel provides a 9foot depth for barge traffic from the Gulf Intracostal Waterway at Apalachicola Florida to the Jim Woodruff Dam which lies across the river just below its junction with the Chattahoochee and Flint Rivers
Steady Flow of Traffic
The Jim Woodruff Lock and Dam continues the barge channel up the Flint River to Bainbridge and up the Chattahoochee River to Columbia TTiere is a steady flow of traffic through the lock carrylfig such commodities as gravel butane petroleum asphalt gasoline diesel oil sulphur and flour The Jim Woodruff power plant produces an average of 220 million kilowatt hours of electric energy a yearenough to provide all the electricity needed in 50000 homes Lake Seminole behind the dam has become a popular recreation site especially famous for its good fishing
The Buford Dam in the headwaters provides flood protection in the upper valley and increases the flow in the river in dry seasons assuring adequate water supplies downstream and aiding navigation all the way to the Gulf The Buford power plant
adds another large block of power to the power supply in the region and Lake Sidney Lanier formed by the dam has become one of the most popular recreation lakes in the country
The Columbia Lock and Dam will continue the barge channel from the upper end of the Jim Woodruff reservoir to the Walter F George Dam at Fort Gaines The lock was opened to navigation last October and is being used regularly by barge tows delivering petroleum products to the Tenneco Oil Companys storage facilities a few miles upstream near Blakely Georgia The dam is essentially completed but the reservoir is being held below its normal operating level while the protecting cofferdam within which the spillway was constructed is being removed The Columbia Dam has no generating facilities and the reservoir will remain largely within the original river banks
88Foot Lift
The Walter F George Lock and Dam will complete the navigation channel to Columbus Georgia and Phenix City Alabama The largest structure in the development it will be about 2 miles long and the lock will have a lift of 88 feet one of the highest in the country The Walter F George power plant will generate more electric energy than the Jim Woodruff and Buford plants combined and the George reservoir will be another large lake suitable for recreation Only minor work remains to complete the project except for the installation of the four generating units in the powerhouse The first unit was put in operation in March and the others will be put in operation as they are installed one at a time
With the completion of the Columbia and Walter F George Dams later this year towns on the Chattahoochee from Columbus to the Gulf will become river ports connected by a modern barge channel to the Gulf Intracostal Waterway and so to the whole great inland waterway system of the nation Water transportation ample power and a dependable water supply will be available to attract industry And another beautiful and extensive lake wall make the valley an even more pleasant place to live
EDITORS NOTE The Georgia Ports Authoritys Terminal facilities at Columbus Georgia are nearing completion and are expected to be in full operation by September of this year The establishment of Columbus as a port city is the result of the farsighted vision of many dedicated persons and the work of the United States Corps of Engineers in providing a series of locks and dams necessary to assure and maintain a suitable channel for commercial barge traffic

OFFICE EQUIPMENT NOW ROUTED THROUGH GEORGIA PORTS
Threeway cooperation among a Savannah salesman 500 For Progress and the Georgia Ports Authority has built a new movement of goods through the port of Savannah
Reggie Seoane who covers the Coastal Empire for Lanier Co noted that many of the office devices distributed by his firm originated in European factories
With the help of 500 For Progress and the Ports Authority Seoane was instrumental in bringing through the Port of Savannah in April about 20 crates some 20000 worth of office recording equipment The instruments are destined for cities throughout the Southeast They formerly moved through other ports and were distributed in this territory by rail and truck
Among the office equipment arriving from
West Germany is a new line of dictating and transcribing machines known as Stenocord The system uses magnetic tape belts which can be erased and used repeatedly
The goods arrived on Strachan Shipping Companys SS American Miller April 9th
Nathaniel Polster Executive Director of 500 For Progress said Seoane personally gained nothing by seeking his companys use of this port and this type of interest by business men in Georgia could add substantially to traffic and income here
Other businessmen whose firms import regularly can obtain information needed to direct shipments through our Georgia Ports by writing to the Georgia Ports Authority P O Box 1939 Savannah
Seoane said that regular probably monthly shipments of the office equipment would be arriving in Savannah

James A Moore 5921 NE 21st Road Ft Lauderdale Fla
Two vacationers from a large city had traveled for hours along a mountain road in their search for adventure without meeting another human being Then a clearing appeared in the deep pine forest
The sunlit scene was very still An old cabin smoke curling lazily from the chimney a thin claybank mule grazing round and round in a circle to keep from moving too much and one lean man resting against a tree his face turned toward the sun letting old time go by
Lets see if he can talk one vacationer suggested He approached the man and said How do you do
Howdy said the native quietly
Pleasant country said the outlander
Fur them that likes it
Lived here all your life asked the vacationer winking at his companion
The mountainman spat pensively into the dust Not yet he said

The recentlygraduated college man a thoroughly modern youth was asked if he was looking for work
The young man pondered the question briefly and then replied Not necessarily but I would like a job

NOBLE COMMENTS from the Editors Desk
Ever had a day when you should never have gotten out of bed
Sure everybody has you might say True but when you place em backtoback while trying to get out a monthly
magazine Wow
A funny thing happened to me on the way to the printers this month
You see unexpected company dropped in at the office the final day before deadline So being a loyal editor I realistically resolved to come back that night and work late
After foregoing second helpings for supper and cautiously driving nine miles from home through a frightening thunderstorm I arrived at our administration building only to realize that my umbrella was you guessed it in my office
Since it did not slack off after 30minutes I made a mad dash for it Once inside dripping wet I realized it was unusually dark in fact it was completely dark Youre way ahead of me again the storm had knocked the electricity out for the evening
The straw that broke the editors back came some 18 hours later when just before raising the white flag of surrender youknowwho spills threefourths of a cup of hot coffee right on top of the final photo layouts
As we said last month coffee breaks over back to the straightjacket

The satisfaction of a job well done This might well be the feeling Professor George F Sowers of Georgia Techs School of Civil Engineering experienced as he and some 30 of his graduate students toured the Georgia Ports Authoritys newly renovated Ocean Terminals at Savannah last month
Two of Professor Sowers former students in this course on Port and Harbor
m
Engineering who took part in similar inspection trips in years past were engaged in the design of the new GPA facilities both at Ocean Terminal and Brunswick
The course is unique in that it is one of the few in the United States on port and harbor engineering It is offered to graduate students in civil engineering and city planning but is also available to outstanding seniors as an elective
The Georgia Tech engineering course covers such subjects as port arrangement breakwaters and beach erosion pro
tection ship characteristics influencing port design design of apron transit shed and adjoining facilities
Detailed instruction is also given on substructure and foundations commodity characteristics including containerization and special facilities such as bulk liquid bulk solids ferry facilities ship repair and ship building
In addition to 15 students from the United States Professor Sowers course this year included students from Uruguay Canada Colombia Lebanon Peru and Panama

Thermometer hovers at minus 10 degrees inside blast room of modern refrigerated warehouse
10 Below Zero Expected at Balmy Savannah
NEW COLD STORAGE FACILITY AT PORT TO BE OPERATED BY ATLANTIC COMPANY
Modern Expansion Will Open New Markets for Georgia Trade
The above headline spread across the front pages of this port citys daily papers might well send motorists and garden lovers scurrying for their antifreeze and smudgepots
Although an accurate prediction the subzero temperature will bring with it profits and increased trade rather than ruptured water faucets and bursted radiators
Actually the minus 10degrees will be the yearround temperature for the blast room of a modern new refrigerated warehouse soon to be constructed by the Georgia Ports Authority at its Garden City terminal at Savannah
The new facility costing approximately 550000 will be built by the GPA and operated by Atlantic Company of Atlanta Georgia Final negotiations were completed this month and a joint announcement released by GPA Chair
man Robert C Norman and Atlantics Chairman of the Board Dillard Munford
In commenting on the new facility Munford said The construction of this modern refrigerated warehouse at the Port of Savannah is a most progressive step in the economy of our state and Atlantic Company is proud to be a partner with the Georgia Ports Authority in operating this new facility
Imported beef is becoming a major factor in food processing continued Munford and the establishment of several new plants to use this imported product is assured for Georgia after the construction of the new port facility is complete
Completed In Six Months
According to GPA officials bids drawn to Atlantic Company specifications will

soon be advertised and the cold storage plant should be in operation approximately six months after the start of actual construction
The refrigerated space will consist of two rooms of approximately 20120 square feet each One room will be cold storage at 32 degrees Fahrenheit and the other will be frozen storage at minus 10 degrees
Each room will contain 402400 cubic feet of storage space and will accommodate 1250 stevedore pallets Part of the building will be devoted to office and equipment storage
The modern new warehouse will be served by both truck and rail with a
double rail track located adjacent to and north of the refrigerated area
Will Open New Markets
In further discussing the usage of the facility Atlantic Company officials noted that Georgia already has a sizeable seafood industry and this will be further increased with the opening of new markets to this Georgia product
It will also be much easier for Georgia growers of pecans and peanuts to store and export their products from Savannah than to ship from some other port which now has cooler space available
The booming Georgia poultry industry will have less freight to absorb in ship
ping their products through the Georgia ports to the common market consumers thus saving much time in transit
Atlantic Company now operates 34 refrigerated warehouses in eight southeastern states and is the largest such warehouse owner in the South Under construction now are six new plants in Mississippi Alabama Florida and Georgia This will bring a total cubic footage of storage space available in Atlantic warehouses to twentyone million cubic feet

The dances were so enthusiastically received by the officers and men that the studio agreed to perform at all five of the major social functions without charge during the Elcanos stay in port
During the daytime walking and riding tours of Savannah were among the favorite pastimes of the visit to Savannah The local camera stores had a rush on film as citizens and sailors fired away at each other for seven days
LEFT While officers and crewmen were touring the city thousands of Savannahians were touring the Elcano The steady stream of visitors that boarded the impressive white ship was estimated at 4000 BELOW Standing at the foot of the ramp of a C 124 Globemaster officers and cadets of the Spanish training ship are btiefed by Col Roland J Barnick with the assistance of an interpreter at Hunter Air Force Base The men also visited nearby Parris Island Marine Training Depot in South Carolina

Having just recently assumed the position of Fashion Editor for the Georgia Anchorage let me take this opportunity to introduce myself Im Robin Elizabeth
My last name Well strange as it may seem it just happens to be the same as the Executive editor I joined the staff at 137 am on July 10 while the editorinchief was some 300 miles from home base covering the Bainbridge inland barge story on page 14 of this issue
He really intended to be on hand to welcome me but the small plane in which he was traveling was grounded overnight by a thunderstorm Ive been told those thunderstorms have a way of catching up with him each month about deadline time something about no electricity or something
Anyway since Im rather new on the scene and not too big yet 7 lbs 7 ozs the boss figured Id better try my hand at something familiar So I sat down and wrote the Cotton pickin Story on page 18 you know like they use in making diapers Sure hope you enjoy it
Well work breaks over back to the bottle I mean the nursery

An interested audience sat through 100degree heat to hear the governors of Georgia and Alabama tell what the opening of the Chattahoochee River for navigation to Columbus Georgia would mean to the citizens of the region
CHATTAHOOCHEE RIVER PROJECTS DEDICATED
Columbia Lock and Dam Shares Honor With Walter F George Dam Lock and Powerhouse
Leading dignitaries from three states the U S Corps of Engineers and approximately 1000 spectators turned out in 100degree temperatures on June 14 to dedicate two lock and dam projects and a power house on the Chattahoochee River
The Columbia Lock and Dam ceremony was held at 10 oclock that morning with Alabama Gov George Wallace and Georgia Sen Herman Talmadge leading the list of speakers
The afternoon program was held at the site of the 80 million Walter F
George Dam Lock and Powerhouse Principal speaker at that occasion was Georgia Governor Carl E Sanders
Both ceremonies moved quickly from speaker to speaker with most of them eulogizing Jim Woodruff Sr and Walter F George for their efforts in the Chattahoochee development which is expected to open a new era of prosperity for the valley and the states of Georgia and Alabama
A marker unveiling symbolized the dedication of the Columbia Lock and Dam located on the Chattahoochee at Columbia Alabama and Blakely Georgia Left to right are Mayor Walter Oakley Jr of Columbia Ala who presided Colonel D A Raymond District Engineer for the Army Engineers Major A C Welling South Atlantic Division Engineer Congressman George Andrews of Alabama and Jim Woodruff Jr of Columbus Ga

THE INLAND BARGE
A Growing Development
AUGUSTA Major Hub of Central Savannah River Area
Prestressed concrete piles manufactured by Augusta Concrete Products Company being loaded aboard barge at Georgia Ports Authoritys Augusta terminal on the Savannah River
With more and more industries locating plants and distribution facilities in Georgia the importance of this states inland ports has taken on new meaning and significance
The following is a six page report on the growing progress of the Georgia Ports Authoritys terminals at Augusta Bainbridge and Columbus
Next months issue will carry a similar report highlighting the industries that have located in these communities and the industrial sites offered by the Georgia Ports Authority at these inland ports
HK
Main entrance to GPAs inland barge terminal at Augusta Facility is part of 95 million dollar expansion program recently completed On the left are tanks for the storage and distribution of liquid fertilizer by Columbia Nitrogen Corporation
Common Carrier Fleet
Expansion On the Way
A Savannah River fleet for common carrier purposes is now a reality
Merry Shipping Company of Augusta which previously has operated private barges for the Merry industrial interests has received a longawaited license from the Interstate Commerce Commission to operate as a water common carrier for interstate operations
The license grants the firm authority to operate between Augusta and other inland ports on the Savannah River and Charleston S C to the north and points on the Atlantic coast as far south as Miami Fla
In its application Merry Shipping indicated that it intends to haul crushed stone and gravel asphalt burlap chemicals clay products creosote oil fish meal iron and steel logs and piling crushed oyster shell and petroleum products
As use of the Savannah River for transportation increases more common carriers on this waterway may be expected
Now that the U S Corps of Engineers has guaranteed a yearround 9foot channel on the river at least three additional carriers now holding rights on the river have indicated a desire to begin operations in this area
Already they have quoted rates to prospective shippers and with recent announcements of industrial expansion in the AugustaSavannah River area they have shown increased interest in operations on the river
Distribution Center
With the port of Augusta a reality its future as a distribution center is now assured
SAVANNAH BLUFF LOCK AND DAM This facility located about 15 miles below Augusta on the Savannah River was completed in 1934 and was among the first projects undertaken to stabilize a navigable channel Barge seen inside the lock is loaded with bricks and is operated by Merry Shipping Company one of the pioneers on the river
Because of the strategic position which Augusta occupies at the center of a great trade area business and industry are finding it greatly to their advantage to stockpile their goods and products there and distribute them within a radius of 100 to 600 miles at minimum cost and maximum speed of delivery
The role of the Savannah River for commerce and industry has just begun

BAINBRIDGE
Georgias First Inland Port9 Located on the Flint River
Georgia has joined many other progressive states in the construction of inland barge terminals to provide a new economical form of bulk transportation
As a result of the constant progress being made at Bainbridge chemical producers petroleum plants and many other expanding industries are utilizing this port to meet the demands of their customers
Bainbridge has served as the model for Georgias fastgrowing inland ports program Modern in every respect the GPA Bainbridge terminal provides large transit shed facilities ample outdoor storage areas and complete handling equipment for almost any type of commodity Bagging operations are also available for certain materials
New Facilities Planned
Because of the tremendous success of the Bainbridge operation the Georgia Ports Authority may increase the services and facilities available at this growing inland port
GPA Executive Director Jack Holt has indicated that business is so good additional facilities may have to be built We are extremely grateful to those firms that are currently doing business with us said Holt and we intend to do everything possible to help them and other firms wishing to use Bainbridge meet their bulk transportation needs

COLUM
An Era of Rebirtiir
For
To the riverboats of the last century and the colorful breed of men who made up their crews Columbus was the end of the line on the run which began at Apalachicola or Mobile and wound 360 miles upstream to the docks at Dillingham Street
Their cargo was made up of naval stores fruit whisky honey and many staple items such as flour sugar and rice Going downstream they would have bales of cotton cotton products and iron goods
The first boats reached Columbus early in 1828 During the next 100 years over 200 riverboats frequented the waters of the Chattahoochee These boats ranged from 48 to 700 tons and a few cost well over 100000
Ships Graveyard
Despite its beauties the river was also treacherous its 360 miles were dotted with shallows and shoals and sandbars built up on the inside of the bends of the river
Many an experienced man ran into tragedy on these sandbars The first steamboat ever to reach Columbus the Fannie blew up after striking one of the larger sandbars several years later
thepi

One of the most beautiful boats that ever plied the Chattahoochee River was the new and elegant steamer Rebecca Everingham built in 1880 at Columbus A familiar sight along the Chattahoochee Flint and Apalachicola Rivers the steamboat measured 192 feet In addition to its cargo holds the ship had 28 staterooms
The Rebecca Everingham burned at Fitzgerald Landing April 3 1884 in one of the worst tragedies in the history of Chattahoochee River steamboating Eight lives were lost
This photo and others of the steamboat era were loaned to Georgia Anchorage by D Neal Wickham Columbus building contractor His father Fred L Wickham began as a mud clerk and eventually retired from steamboating in 1911 with a Masters Certificate Additional background information supplied by W C Woodall also of Columbus

JULY 1963
With the clearing of land all over midwestern Georgia the red clay of the region was washing down and depositing an ever increasing amount of mud and silt on the bottom
The channel became too shallow in spots for navigation and except for an occasional visit the steamboating era on the Chattahoochee was at an end shortly after the turn of the century
A New Vision A New Era
Because of the vision and work of men like Jim Woodruff and Walter F George the Columbus and Chattahoochee Valley areas are once again standing on the brink of a new era of water borne commerce
The tricky shoals and sandbars are being rembved by modern engineering an extensive system of locks and dams are being put into operation and a yearround navigable channel is about to be opened this fall
Although the graceful steamboat may never ply the Chattahoochee again in its place will come low squatbarges carrying bulk freight to and from a growing industrial complex along its banks
Artillerymen from Fort Benning Infantry Center and their 105mm guns are dwarfed by the immense size of the 80 million Walter F George Dam on the Chattahoochee River The dam stretching 13585 feet from Alabama to Georgia has spillways 708 feet in total length and 112 feet above the stream bed at their high ends 14 massive gates each 42 by 29 feet are adjacent to a 164footwide lock fitted to raise barges and boats 88 feet from one side to the other
The first cargo steamer to reach the city of Columbus is alleged to have been the Fannie January 26 1828 The J W Callahan shown above was one of the last packet boats to serve the Columbus area It stopped running during the early thirties

Future Trip Discussed
EUROPEAN TRADE MISSION HOLDS REUNION
Thirtysix of Georgias leading businessmen who represent the major economical and industrial interests of our state gathered in Atlanta recently for a reunion of the 1962 Georgia Trade Mission to Europe which was led by former Governor Ernest Vandiver
Although taking advantage of the occasion to reminiscence over the 21days spent touring Holland Belgium France Italy England and West Germany the delegates devoted much time to the discussion of the possibility of a similar trip within the next year or two
The entire group felt that last years mission was a wonderful success and had done much to increase the economic bonds between Georgia and the Common Market countries
With the opening of a fulltime sales office for the Georgia Ports Authority in Bonn West Germany this fall there is expected to be even greater benefits from the 1962 trade mission as well as from trade missions that might follow in years to come

JULY 1963
American Ideals Heritage Still Evident in Country
By Roland Page
Savannah Evening Press Staff Writer
mnfn

Im the veteran of veterans the senior of senior citizens and the symbol of the greatest nation on earth
Mr U S Flag made this boastful statement in an interview today This is a big day for Flag Hes now celebrating the 187th anniversary of his kingdom
And it wont be the last one Flag stated Not as long as a spark of George Washington Tom Jefferson Pat Henry and the rest of the old gang burns in these new whippersnappers
Flag said that the spark of which he spoke may not seem too bright at times anymore but that Ive been around long enough to know that theres more to the American people than meets the eye
That spark is the American ideal of freedom liberty equality and the democratic way of life I know that these words are sometimes tarnished by the battles of those who have differing interpretations of them
I know that we sometimes seem to be further from those ideals than King George himself bless his tyrannical soul
But dadblast it the very fact that we can bicker and disagree freely proves that were not too far from the original goal Flag stated
Just then a fan strolled by so Flag ruffled his stripes as elaborately as possible and resumed his comment
Anyway as I was saying I hear people grumble and gripe about how bad things are and how things arent the way they used to be Ive been hearing that for almost 200 years now
But you let those bad things be
threatened by outsiders and every griper is ready for battle I saw it happen at Brandywine We were all nervous but excited there
In Mexico Winfield Scott did a good job for me At Gettysburg I couldnt glory in any victoryI was sick for all my people
But we came back togetherlike I knew we would I flew proudly up San Juan Hill I went brazenly with everyone else to meet the Kaizer I really made a splash at Iwo Jima and Korea proved that the spark will never dieunless we all do
And Ill tell you somethingI consider myself immortal Lets bicker and fight Thats the only way well get anywhere But on a day like this lets make a truce and look at what weve accomplished
In other comments Flag a somewhat proud old fellow cited the fact that the SS Savannah was the first steamship to ever carry him over the Atlantic We left the Port of Savannah in 1819 bound for Liverpool England he said
He also urged all to attend tonights July 4 celebration at Bacon Park Ill be there Those fireworks remind me of days and men gone by The men who gave me birth the men who expect me to have a long free life

to return the 180 fuel elements from the Studsvik reactor for reprocessing
Handled With Efficiency and Dispatch
Samuel Edlow Nuclear Traffic Consultant for the Studsvik Research Station in Sweden was extremely satisfied with the success of the first shipment and its handling
The whole matter was handled with the greatest efficiency and dispatch said Edlow and the time involved in
Thirtysix expended fuel elements contained in four leadlined casks designed by the Edlow Company of Columbus Ohio arrived from Sweden were placed aboard an Atlantic Coast Line railcar and transported to the U S Atomic Energy Commissions Idaho Chemical Processing Plant at Scoville Idaho
After reprocessing they will be returned to the Georgia Ports Authoritys Savannah Terminal for shipment back to Sweden Similar shipments will arrive every 60 days for the next year
The uranium fuel enriched to 90 per cent in U235 was leased to Sweden in 1961 under the U S Atoms for Peace Program for use in the materials testing and research reactor R2 The reactor is located at the Studsvik Research Station 60 miles south of Stockholm A total of five shipments will be required

the discharging from the vessel and loading upon the flat car was even shorter than we anticipated
We knew that the shipment was eminently safe and we were delighted to find that radiation level and temperature level were below those which we had anticipated in reading on the way over here
I must compliment the Georgia Ports Authority Strachan Shipping Company Atlantic Coast Line Railroad and everyone involved on the veryefficient manner in which it was handled I do honestly believe that we have set an example here which it will be difficult for other ports to achieve on any shipment which may occur in the future
Exceeds 50000 in Value
Edlow estimated the U235 content of the returned spent fuel elements would exceed 50000 in value The shipment was entered at the Custom House as Returned American Goods and will pay no duty
Edlow said the ocean freight on the casks both ways would be 15000 the cost of rail transportation from Savannah to the ACEs Idaho Chemical Processing Plant and returning casks

Once tied up at the Savannah State Docks personnel of the Atomic Energy Commission U S Coast Guard Bureau of Explosives and the Interstate Commerce Commission went aboard for purposes of inspection of the atomic fuel cargo prior to unloading operation
Two 35ton gantry cranes working in tandum and using a specially designed Swedish yoke transfer the 12ton casks directly from ship to flatcar for the trip to the Idaho reprocessing plant

AUGUST 1963
A series of radiation and temperature checks by AEC and Coast Guard personnel are required before unloading and after the casks had been securely strapped to the Atlantic Coastline flatcar Similar tests were made before the ship left Sweden July 8 The shipment was pronounced much safer than many cargoes moving daily through U S ports
GEORGIA ANCHORAGE
Military and civilian representatives from other cities and ports were on hand to observe the handling of the atomic cargo by Savannah shipping and transportation interests The movement received the highest praise from the AEC and other governmental agencies and was declared an example that will be difficult for other ports to achieve on any shipment which may occur in the future
8000 reprocessing of spent fuel 18000 and administrative and other incidental expenses 3000
The fuel enriched to 90 per cent with Uranium 235 is leased to Sweden and other foreign governments to promote peaceful uses of atomic energy A prime condition is that the fuel be returned after use to make certain it is not used for other than peaceful pursuits
Forerunner of Similar Shipments
Because most authorities expect the Swedish shipment of spent fuel to be merely the vanguard of some 4400 lbs of enriched uranium reactor fuel that may find its way back for reprocessing in the U S over the next few years
Savannahs success in getting the jump as a port of transfer could have important financial implications
Glenn T Seaborg Chai rman of the U S Atomic Energy Commission noted the outstanding safety record established in handling shipments of radioactive materials within the United States Over a period of nearly a quarter century there is no record of radiation injury resulting from transportation of radioactive materials
Thirtysix expended fuel elements contained in four leadlined casks move out of the GPA Garden City terminal aboard a specially designed ACL rail car for the trip to Scoville Idaho

or most folks the month of August is a time for backyard patio parties preceded of course by the mowing of grass and the trimming of hedges
The backyard of Mr and Mrs Henry Rainaud of Savannah however is somewhat uniqueits filled with ships from every corner of the globe and its very unlikely youll find a lawnmower within half a mile
The Rainauds Henry and Marcia live onboard a 40foot ketch in the heart of downtown Savannah with their two youngsters Henry ten and Muffett age eight
Calling all ships at sea
Bedtime aboard the DREAMER
SHIPS
Originally from Connecticut Henry and his family moved to Savannah recently from the Bahama Islands where theyve been living aboard the Dreamer for the last five years
As General Manager of the Georgia Broadcasting Company Henrys office is located just above the historic cobblestones along the River Street which parallels the Savannah River only a stones throw from the site where General Oglethorpe landed and spent his first night upon founding the colony of Georgia in 1733
When high noon rolls around Henry simply raises his office window catches a whiff of home cooking from the galley and within seconds is joining the rest of the Rainauds for lunch at home aboard the Dreamer
All the Modern Conveniences
Whats it like living in a floating home yearround Without a dissenting vote the Rainauds will unanimously agree Its great theres nothing like it
Their Alden Diesel Auxiliary Ketch is the pride of the harbor There are two double staterooms a main cabin with permanent dinette and a sizeable kitchen
The Dreamer is equipped with a telephone yearround air conditioning television and 24hour Muzak service This latter resulting from the fact that Henrys firm is the Muzak agency in Savannah
What happens when outoftown guests drop in for the weekend
Well Henry has that one solved too He has just completed a dock house that includes a lounge guest room and space for all the shoreside gear such as
washing machine refrigerator and deep freeze
And if the guests would like to go sightseeing the Rainauds just lift anchor and cast off for a spin around the intercoastal waterway and Savannahs growing industrial waterfront
Delight of the Younger Set
From the kids viewpoint life aboard the Dreamer is something theyve grown up with and would not trade for all the world
Henry Jr and his sister Muffet have many friends on shore and needless to say have to issue only one invitation to come ona my house to rival the manpower of the Seventh Fleet
As for their ABCs the youngsters have a tutor come aboard for formal instruction They attend basic training five days a week for nine months

just like other kids and are required to do just as much if not more homework
Pioneer of a New Frontier
Although living onboard a yacht is nothing new Henry Sr feels that he is somewhat of a pioneer in staking a homesite right in the heart of downtown Savannah on a busy industrial waterway such as the Savannah River
Up until the Dreamer dropped anchor in the shadow of City Hall very few if any luxury crafts had ever ventured up the river to the heart of the city for permanent mooring
Frankly theyre missing a good bet said Rainaud The Savannah River water in the downtown area of the city is ideal for maintenance free yachting Theres just enough fresh water to prevent barnacles and worms and just enough salt water to cut down on the grass and rot
This little known fact was first told to Henry many years ago by an old sea captain from Daytona Beach Florida who used to operate a sidewheeler up
the Savannah River once a year just to clean out the boilers by pumping downtown river water through the vessels system
Actually said Rainaud if boat owners moving up and down the intercoastal waterway would only cruise up the Savannah River to the heart of the city they would cut down tremendously on their maintenance cost
As a result of this ideal water condition Rainaud predicts that someone someday will open a modern yacht basin in the heart of Savannah on the river and really clean up in more ways than one
So what else is new along the riverfront Well the Rainauds are about to have neighbors
Another yacht fancier who also has a business office along the river bank has already begun preparations for a similar dockhouse and mooring just downstream
After all the lady of every house must have someone from whom to borrow a cup of sugar
Drop in again the next time youre on the river

Although many Americans have built up a mental block to some of the forms of mass media advertising it is still a proven fact that because of advertising this nation enjoys an economy unequaled in the history of the world
Its true you dont run down to the corner drug store to pick up the latest design in modern industrial equipment and its unlikely youll find even one roll of jute from India on your next trip to the supermarket
Advertising like so many other fields is highly specialized and requires the creative minds of many persons working together side by side with management to produce an attractive image of a company its product andor service
How About a Logo
Shortly after the Georgia Ports Authority announced the appointment of the Atlanta Office of DArcy Advertising Company as its new ad agency it was felt a new logo was high on the agenda of important projects
What is a logo Well to simplify things it can best be described as a symbol or trademark used in conjunction with the firms name to establish product or service identification
Although thats not exactly the way Mr Webster explains it folks in the ad business will agree its a pretty good laymans description
DArcys Jack Kaplan Richard Simms and Martha Barnes discuss copy and layout for new commercial warehousing ad Completed ad is found on page 21 of this issue
DArcy Advertising staff plans new logo Discussing ideas are Larry Rochelle Jim Steele and Richard Simms
Where is a logo used Most anywhere at the top of stationery at the bottom of advertisements and perhaps in the middle of calling cards just to mention a few On this particular page our new GPA logo is used in the headline
Created in the production department of DArcy the reverse arrows symbolize the movement of import and export cargoes This simple yet effective logo has already begun the task of further identifying Georgia ports as among the nations leading ports for shipments throughout the world
Incidentally the Atlanta office of DArcy has also recently been appointed as the new ad agency for the Georgia Dept of Industry and Trade
New Ad Campaign
GPA advertisements which have been seen in trade magazines for years will have a new look this fall And theyll be seen by many new readers in such business magazines as Business Week
The new ads complete with the new logo will be telling shippers business leaders and industrialists both in the United States and overseas of the multimillion dollar expansion program of the Georgia Ports Authority nd how these new facilities can save them money
In addition to the growing import and export trade at GPAs deepwater ports of Savannah and Brunswick these imaginative ads will also highlight the inland barge terminals at Augusta Bainbridge and Columbus the twomillion square feet of commercial warehousing at Garden City and GPAs choice industrial sites such as Colonels Island at Brunswick and the Whitehall Plantation adjacent to GPAs Garden City terminal at Savannah
Regardless of where you see our new logo the reverse arrows will be pointing the way to greater profits through the facilities of the Georgia Ports Authority
Be on the lookout for it

THIS IS THE ARCHITECTS DRAWING of the new muliimillion dollar manufacturing plant which Columbia Nitrogen Corporation now is constructing in Augusta Georgia It will combine the most modern manufacturing technology with the best of contemporary design
It is expected to be completed late in 1963
COLUMBIA NITROGEN CORPORATION
C K Ballard President
To be competitive freight cost wise we as producers of bulk chemicals and fertilizers must be located so as to be accessible to navigable water To reach certain distant markets we can only hope to do so by shipping by water
Some special large pieces of equipment of the preferred type had to be purchased in Europe This equipment was far too large to be moved by rail hence had to be transferred to barges for movement from port of entry to Augusta
These are some but certainly not all of the reasons we felt it necessary to locate on navigable water
SUPERIOR STONE COMPANY
Harry S Miller Manager
Superior Stone Company operates a plant with barging facilities in Eastern North Carolina and has found barging to be an effective and low cost means of transportation
Crushed stone being a low cost commodity is heavily dependent on low cost transportation The inland port of Augusta offers us the possibility of shipping to points where our rail and truck rates are not competitive
The Augusta Port facilities are a solid asset for a growing area crushed stone is barged heavily in other parts of the U S and we welcome another method of transporting our product

THE PROCTER GAMBLE MANUFACTURING COMPANY
Procter Gamble has acquired an easement to the river which includes adequate river frontage for docking purposes
Certainly one of the factors in the selection of Augusta Georgia for Jthe construction of this plant was the nearness to navigable water As barge shipments on the Savannah River increase there is every likelihood that we will find it advantageous to utilize this mode of transportation

FLINT RIVER MILLS INC
Bainbridge Georgia J W Hunt Treasurer
Flint River Mills Inc Bainbridge Ga is a manufacturer of a complete line of poultry and livestock feeds having operated since 1933 a period of 30 years
In the operation of feed manufacturing we require large quantities of grains and grain byproducts A portion of these ingredients are obtained at a local level but a large quantity is obtained from the MidWest All ingredients are obtained in bulk and barge transportation is most adapted for this bulk handling
Soon after the Bainbridge Ports started operation we built an elevator on the Flint River with all necessary equipment for unloading bulk grains by barge It was in April 1958 when we unloaded our first barge of grain and it was a most highly successful operation
Since then we have regularly used barge transportation for a large portion of our grain requirements Recently we have expanded our storage facilities at the elevator to a capacity of 300000 bushels
We find that being able to have access to truck rail and water transportation puts us in a most favorable and competitive position Any industry looking for a location or any industry considering relocating I think would do well to consider locating at Georgias inland ports

We believe lha ihe costreducing advantages provided by the inland ports ol Georgia have proved very signiiicant to industry and agricnlture Georgians are enabled thereby to maintain a competitive position in several fields where this would not otherwise be possible
This has been particularly helpful in the fertilizer industry with respect to sulphur and phosphate rock and there is increasing indication that freight savings will materialize in the case of potash and nitrogen
It would be hard to overestimate or overpraise the good results of these inland ports and we sincerely hope that the State of Georgia will continue to foster their development in every possible way

When the Port of Bainbridge was first opened we shipped a barge of Sulphur through the GPA Terminals The savings in transportation were tremendous Sinee then Sulphur producers have used the port and we haul our Sulphur from there The other modes of transportation have made their rates competitive but we realize that the present rates are due to the existence of this facility and we continue to use the Port
The Port of Bainbridge has been worth a great deal to us and we know it will continue to be worth much to Southwest Georgia

A New Potential For Expansion
Editorial from Columbus Ledger
SOUNDS OF THE BARGE WHISTLES COME NEARER
Jus as Columbus and Phenix City become all but ready lo receive the first bargeload oi cbm modities at their new dock facilities some generally good news arrives by way of the American Waterways Operators Inc
It is that industrial waterside plant locations and expansions throughout the nation gained momentum in the first quarter of this year Production industries constructed or announced plans to construct 1SS plant facilities along navigable waterways during this period
Analysis of the 135 waterside site plant locations developed in the first quarter of 1953 show that 41 were chemical or petroleum production
facilities 33 were metal producing plants 19 were terminals docks and wharves designed for handling barge traffic 13 were paper plants two were fertilizer plants one was a grain installation and one was a cement plant
This follows other generally good news that a Corps of Engineer study is under way in Columbus to determine the feasibility of reclaiming hundreds of acres of river flood lands south of Columbus for industry by construction of levees and dikes
With barge travel scheduled to begin soon from Columbus to the Gulf one can almost hear the sound of the boat whistles on the river now

The Hottest Cargo In Port
And The Story Of UNITANE Ti02
White wall tires are whiter golf balls are whiter refrigerators and tile and dinnerware and paint and dozens of other products are all whiter today because they contain titanium dioxide
The Savannah Georgia plant of
American Cyanamid Companys pigments division is expanding its facilities in an effort to meet the growing demands for this magic pigment UNITANE titanium dioxide
The Georgia Ports Authoritys Garden City Terminal is playing an important part in this growing industry for it receives and distributes to the local Cyanamid plant thousands of tons of
molten sulphur for conversion to sulphuric acid which in turn is used to produce the titanium dioxide

The lyrics from one of the hit songs from the Broadway musical Pajama Game stating We got Sssss steam heat seem most appropriate when describing the Georgia Ports Authoritys storage and handling facilities for molten sulphur

A huge 11000 ton capacity storage tank and all pipelines connect ing it with GPAs Thead Pier must be constantly maintained at 278c Fahrenheit
The extremely high temperature is required in order to maintair the sulphur in a liquid state for handling and distribution
Texas and Louisiana sulphur which arrives in Savannah regularly by ships such as the Louisiana Sulphur is pumped off at a rate ol 1300 tons per hour for storage in GPAs 11000 ton storage tank
From here the molten sulphur is transferred into tank trucks for delivery to American Cyanamids Savannah Plant
Upon arrival the molten sulphur is pumped into huge vats and fed into furnaces where it is burned with air to ultimately form sulphuric acid
This acid combined with ore slag and other ingredients eventually come off the production line as bagged containers of the miracle white pigment UNITANE titanium dioxide
How White Is White
If properly trained in color perception man can distinguish with unaided eyes as many as 500000 colors of various hues densities purity
R H McGraw of Petroleum Carrier Corporation checks in at GPA truck scales to weigh shipment of molten sulphur prior to delivery to American Cyanamid Average delivery per truck will range approximately 23 tons

and brightness When all of the colors of the spectrum are combined the resulting color is said to be white The purest white produced when pure magnesium is burned under controlled conditions is rated as 100
Based on this standard the whiteness of fresh snow is 95 The best grade of UNITANE titanium dioxide is rated at 98 This is but one reason why titanium dioxide is called the whitest of all white pigments
Cyanamids UNITANE titanium dioxide first manufactured at Piney River Virginia was introduced to industry in 1938 Today at both Piney River and at its modern new plant at Savannah Georgia a complete line is produced
Many advantages brought Cyanamid to Savannah for this its 20th plant in the south There is an excellent transportation system of railroads highways airlines and water borne shipping to bring in raw materials from Canada India and the Gulf Coast and to carry out finished UNITANE to markets throughout the world
The Georgia Ports Authority is proud of the fact that it is helping to meet the needs of this expanding and progressive industry

NOBLE COMMENTS from the Editors Desk
When was the last time you sat down before a nice big juicy sirloin steak
Remember how tender it was when your knife sliced right through and the melting butter ran down to fill up the crevice left by the blade
Next came a dash or two of Worcestershire sauce and maybe even a little garlic salt sprinkled here and there
Mighty good eatin You bet it was
But did you ever stop to think what that very same steer had for his main dish a few weeks prior to that
Well believe it or not more and more ranchers are giving serious thought and action toward making their livestock better eaters through the process of adding Blackstrap Molasses to their feeds From a cows point of view Man thats really living highonthehog
The details of the expanding Molasses industry in Georgia is found on page 8 of this issue

The present operations of the Georgia Marble Company comprise the largest organization of its kind in the world It can offer a complete onesource service in more than 30 varieties of marble limestone and soapstone as well as crushed marble and limestone for all their many uses
Named for its birthplace in the famous marble foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in the Eastern United States the beauty provided by the many divisions and subsidiaries of the Georgia Marble Company are used throughout the world
The classic beauty and extraordinary durability of marblethe first material
of architectural and monumental art is being shaped and carved and used more today than it ever has before Its remarkable propertiesformed by nature millions of yars agoare still unsurpassed by the materials of man
With consistent and dedicated research the Georgia Marble Company is
bringing the value and the beauty of
these properties to more and more people places and things as time goes by
In addition to marble from its own quarries located in the North Georgia hills the Georgia Marble Company also imports a large variety of stone from Italy Belgium Norway Spain Portugal and Peru

Variegated marble in almost any color or combination is also secured from
By importing and carrying in stock these types of marble not available in
the states Georgia Marble is able to supply any type of marble known in the world and can bid on any type or combination of types required for either external or internal construction

Wrrd dlthabssibility of rich deposits of this Ht excemMpiBle spread to the north and the necessary ondy was found to explore the rich potential qfrEnjSypmp Valley in the foothills of the Appalabyftis
Geologists tidied the rock structures of the section and decider tiat the marble strata were large enoughfor fffifr8 investigation
Test cores were taken from the bed of marble to a depth of hundreds of feet without going through the strata Authorities called into consultation quickly agreed that the deposit was one of the richest in the world
The quiet peaceful valley of farms was indeed a vast storehouse of nature One that contained invaluable treasures of beauty under its crops and pastures Thus Long Swamp Valley was soon to be changed from a farmland to a major industrial community
continued next page

What the Georgia Hills Have Revealed
The tremendous size of these marble deposits would astound even those who drilled the first cores It is now conservatively estimated that there is enough Georgia Marble here to last for at least the next thirty centuries at current production rates
Not only is this one of the worlds most beautiful building and monumental stones it is also the worlds most dependable supply Duplications annexes or additions to buildings built of Georgia Marble can be made at any time and purchasers can be sure of a perfect match
But even more as the overburden of dirt has been scraped away from acre to acre and mile to mile other beautiful varieties of marble have been revealeda pale silvery gray suggesting the mist of a rainy day rich and textured greens many unusual shades of pink with striking blueblack markings even a jet black brilliantly veined in
white The north Georgia hills are truly one of natures fi great storehouses of beauty
Today along the Long Swamp Valley the Georgia Mar y

Marble Hill and Nelson are producing structural and monumental marble for America and the world Some nine hundred people are employed theremany of them now third and fourth generation craftsmen i

New Products New Fields
While steady progress was being made in the basic marble fields of building and monumental materials the company had long realized the possibilities of the material in other forms
Plans for expansion in many new fields have taken place over the last several decades
Its Calcium Products Division alone has opened markets never before envisioned in the field of marble production
They originated white marble roofing chips developed a harmless white line marking material for athletic fields brought out an exceptionally good chicken grit and ground marble into micron sizes for use as extenders and fillers by the paint and rubber industry
The Calcium Products Division found so many uses for its crushed and ground
products that they are now a part of hundreds of different manufactured items ranging from cosmetics to flooring tires to tennis shoes chewing gum to wall paper to welding rods
Six modern plants can turn out more than two thousand tons of these marble products every day Three completely equipped laboratories keep a constant check on quality and furnish a continuous flow of technical information to the industrial users of these products
So much has the demand grown for the products of the Georgia Marble Company that truly the surface has barely been scratched As this industry continues to expand its operations to meet the needs of its customers the Georgia Ports Authority will continue to be of service through its own modernized and expanded facilities

Tanker MT Vivar prepares to dock at GPAs THead pier at Garden City Terminal
NEW MOLASSES TERMINAL BEGINS
OPEI
Sunshine State Molasses Company of Georgia Inc has opened a new facility at the Georgia Ports Authoritys Garden City Terminal for the distribution of blackstrap molasses
Richard L Driscoll President of the firm and Lester P Fisher Executive Vice President were in Savannah last month to personally supervise the arrival of the terminals initial supply of 1 million 300 thousand gallons
The molasses arrived August 24 from Peru aboard the tanker MT Vivar which immediately began pumping the heavy syrup into three large storage tanks at the Sunshine State Terminal on Brampton Road Strachan Shipping Company of Savannah is the agent for the Vivar
From its new facility at GPAs Garden City Terminal Sunshine will distribute the blackstrap molasses by rail and truck to Georgia feed manufacturers
Blackstrap molasses is in growing demand by the feed industry because it can be economically mixed with dry ingredients to produce a livestock feed that is nutritional and at the same time particularly attractive to animals because of its flavor and odor
Market Potential
In commenting on the new Savannah terminal Driscoll said We are firmly convinced that there is a nationwide market potential for feed molasses of over a billion gallons annually Much of this is right here in Georgia
There are huge markets still untapped Once molasses feeds are offered by one mill or fed by one feeder all of

Fisher is seated on the right
the competition finds it necessary to follow suit We predict a tremendous volume for this Savannah terminal and are happy to be able to utilize the excellent docking and transportation facilities of the Georgia Ports Authority
In further explaining the importance of moiasses to the feed industry Fisher pointed out that the heavy syrup can be substituted up to certain levels for other carbohydrate feeds for various types of livestock dairy and beef cattle horses pigs and in smaller controlled quantities to poultry
One of the cheapest carbohydrates available blackstrap molasses is an excellent conditioner in that it keeps down

The expanded Brunswick State Docks handled 10 ships and three barges in August as local industrial plants expanded export operations
The activity was a new record for the docks which have proven much more popular since addition of a second berth was completed early this year
The docks are proving a tremendous help to local industries by saving shipping cost A M Harris Sr of the Georgia Ports Authority has noted
He explained that handling is reduced by the proximity of the docks to Brunswick Pulp and Paper Co and Hercules Powder Co which have developed large export markets in recent months and years The two firms are the major users of the docks along with the Babcock and Wilcox Co plant here
Southern Shipping Company and Strachan Shipping Co now have fulltime offices at Brunswick
The second GPA berth has reduced scheduling conflicts and made

Hercules and Brunswick Pulp have been able to combine shipping schedules on occasion to warrant a visit by a vessel that otherwise would have been omitted in favor of transferring the cargo to another port
The frequency of freighter calls in turn is now beginning to attract other cargoes

With A Helping Hand
Late one afternoon an air force jet fighter developed an emergency engine problem while flying high over Savannah
At 515 PM the U S Coast Guard Air Station at Hunter Air Force Base received a phone call that one of the two men aboard had ejected from the disabled craft and had landed in a tree south of the Savannah Air Terminal
Within minutes a new Skorsky jet helicopter was on the way to the scene The pilot was hoisted from the tree limbs at 535 and flown to Hunter AFB Hospital The helicopter touched down just outside the emergency room at 544 only nine minutes after pick up
Such missions are routine operation for the officers and men of the newly commissioned Coast Guard Air Station recently established at Savannah
New Jet Helicopters
Since the unit became operational on August 7 the Coast Guards three jet helicopters have taken part in over
twenty different search or rescue missions along the GeorgiaSouth Carolina coasts
The station is maintained with a complement of 10 officers and 25 enlisted men Nine of the officers including Commander James P Flessas are experienced pilots
When not actively engaged in rescue and search efforts the personnel of the Coast Guard Air Station are busily going about the task of educating the general public re

Hospital Coordination
The areas first heliport has just been placed in operation at Memorial Hospital in Savannah to allow the Coast Guard to speed emergency victims directly from the scene of an accident to the hospital grounds The landing field for the helicopters is located behind the nursing school residence
When emergencies occur the rescue helicopters pick up the victims and transport them to the hospital landing field There they are met by a hospital crew with stretchers who rush them to the hospitals emergency room a short distance from the field
In extreme emergencies a doctor can be picked up at the heliport and carried directly to the scene
In commenting on the new operation Memorial Hospitals Administrator R J Weinzettel said We at Memorial feel it a privilege to work with the Coast Guard in this new and vitally needed service We are sure that many lives will be saved because of the immediate medical aid that can be rendered as a result of this heliport facility
Coast Guard officials are currently working with other hospitals in the coastal area of Georgia and South Carolina to set up a similar program for emergency assistance

Rear Adm I J Stevens of Miami Commander of the Seventh Coast Guard District commissions the Savannah Coast Guard Air Station in ceremonies August 30 at Hunter Air Force Base The 10 officers and 25 enlisted men are equipped with three amphibious helicopters Air search off the Georgia coast was formerly conducted by aircraft from Miami or
St Petersburg Fla
Search and Rescue
Not all missions carried out by the helicopter unit involve sickness or injuries Many times weekend fishermen become stranded due to mechanical problems or they become lost in bad weather
These search and rescue missions are now being coordinated between the Coast Guard Air Station and such units as the Coast Guard Auxiliary and the various Marine Rescue Squadrons in the area
Several weeks ago a fishing boat radioed the Savannah Coast Guard that a 24foot pleasure boat was stranded with
engine failure in Wassaw Sound A Coast Guard helicopter was dispatched to locate the stranded boat while a 40foot CG utility boat got under way from the downtown river station
The boat was located near Marker 14 in Wassaw Sound and towed to Bradys Boat Works at Isle of Hope near the port city
Commissioned by Rear Admiral I J Stevens on August 30 the new Coast Guard Air Station at Hunter Air Force Base is a welcomed addition to shipping and boating interests along the Georgia coast

AT OCEAN TERMINAL
ilkSargo Loaded Through Roof
The Geor gia Ports Authoritys new fourmillion dollar terminal facility at Ocean Terminals in Savannah is now in full operation
Its first bulk cargo arrived September 11 when the Liberian freighter Aristidis began discharging approximately 600 tons of potash Agents for the vessel are Strachan Shipping Company
Built into the roof of the new 100000 square foot transit shed are eight large cargo hatches that can be
opened to allow direct transfer of bulk or general cargo commodities by specially designed gantry cranes to or from ship to or from the safety of spacious interior transit storage areas
This established the point of rest within the transit shed thereby immeasurably reducing handling costs Once the transfer has been completed cranes replace hatch covers in the transit shed roof

More than 200 of the Nations top business leaders met with President Kennedy and key Cabinet officers September 17th and 18th in Washington D C to survey the jepuntrys newest economic frontier The World market for U S gopds
The White House Confren on Export Expansion was convened by President Kennedy to enable business and government to consider together the serious deficit in the U inter national balance of payments the difference between our total payments receipts from abroad compared with our total payments abyoadf
Attending the Conference from Savannah were Jack E Cay Jr man of the Savannah Regional Export Expansion Council William Hopkins president of National Rosin Oil Products Hobart Manley of Reynolds and Manley Lumber Company and Joseph G Stovall Director Savannah
Office U S Department of Commerce
Urgency of Problem
Expansion of U S exports President Kennedy declared is made urgfft by the need to balance our accounts with other nations and to strengthen the dollar as the principal preserve currency of the world This is the solution to our balance of payenj problem which is most consistent with our efforts to promote grjlpr freedom of trade and enterprise throughout the world
if The business community said the President has a vital stake in this effort to expand sales abroad to make fuller use of our productive capacity vud to provide broader employment opportunities for all of our people More than three million American jobs are directly owed to U S export
Although the dollar value of U S exports is greater than that of any other nation it still exports only four percent of its Gross National Product less than any other industrialized nation Germany for example exports 17 percent Japan 10 percent France 12 percent
If the U S could expand exports 10 percent it would largely eliminate the balance of payments deficit Business profits of course would also be substantially increased especially since profit margins on export business are generally larger than domestic
Little White House Conference
One of the most important features of the Conference was the planning of a series of Little White House Conferences which will be held in key cities throughout the country by the Commerce Departments 39 Regional Export Expansion Councils
GEORGIA ANCHORAGE
EXPANSION
At the Savannah Conference held on September 25th Jack E Cay Jr indicated that a tax incentive will be the No 1 weapon in seeking to promote greater exports for the United States The tax incentive would take the form of a credit against the U S income taxes of the exporter
Cay said that the conference recommended that steps be taken to set up Target 10000 as a new program for export expansion The program is to have as its objective the participation in export trade of 10000 U S firms that are not now exporting A campaign of direct promotion and personal contact to bring these companies into export activity on a permanent and growing basis Cay said
It was pointed out that there are
315000 manufacturers in the U S who could export and of these only about 13000 to 15000 are doing so

Fifteen tons of honey spread th inch thick would cover a right good size piece of bread In fact several pieces both sides yet even
The Georgia Ports Authoritys Brunswick terminal has recently become an important part of the export expansion program of the Sioux Honey Association
Chartered under the state of Iowa in 1921 the association today is national in scope with some 800 members producing approximately 40 million pounds of honey for commercial use
In addition to its general offices and laboratory in Sioux City Iowa the association has seven other plants located at Lima Ohio Temple Texas Anaheim California Tacoma Washington Umatilla Florida and Waycross Georgia
Overseas Markets
On May 1 1963 the association set up an export and bulk honey division headed by Han Schumacher of Alhambra California Today honey is being shipped to such countries as England Germany France Japan Belgium and Ireland
Schumacher a man of over 30 years experience in the field of exporting honey predicts that a considerable improvement in volume should occur in the coming years due to the expanded production of the types of honey in the southeast which normally seek export markets
As this important overseas market is developed the Sioux Associations Waycross Georgia plant will likely increase its

Sioux Honey Association is a cooperative now in its 42nd year of operation Approximately 800 members produce
honey in nearly every state in the union
use of the Georgia Ports Authoritys facilities at both Brunswick and Savannah
Increase Sailing Schedules
The recent increase in sailing schedules has resulted in an even more economical and efficient outlet for world trade Many commodities formerly moving through other ports are now cleared through GPA terminals with substantial savings to shippers and manufacturers
Personalized overseas service to importers and exporters is now offered by the Georgia Ports Authoritys fulltime European Director Lawrence W Magrath headquartered in Bonn Germany
During the past 15 years the Sioux Honey Association has doubled its volume With the addition of its new export division a continued and healthy growth is anticipated in this nation wide association

BEELINE
What every young man should know and probably doesnt is a few more facts about the birds and the bees In this case we will stick with the bees The bee is not only one of Mother Natures busiest insects but one of the smartest After a hard day in the field gathering a load of nectar flitting from one area to another the bee will head straight for home in a beeline when
he has reached his limit What internal radar the bee possesses for this phenomenal feat has baffled man for centuries
Just as baffling is the strange dance he performs when he returns to the colony Ole brother bee isnt performing just for kicks His terpsichorean antics enlighten his buzzing cousins as to where the fields of nectar lay
Honey is stored in drums at Waycross plant and then transported to Georgia Ports Authoritys Brunswick terminal for loading aboard ship Honey is now exported to such countries as England Germany France Japan Belgium
and Ireland

A Bird In The Sky
With A Weather Eye
17 years of operations from a Bermuda base the 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron has moved to Hunter Air Force Base with new faces and a facelifting
The conversion from WB50s propeller driven aircraft to the sleek WB47 jets accounts for the facelifting and also for the new faces Almost a complete personnel change from pilots to maintenance men was required as a result of the change over
Lt Col Arnold E Zimmerman Squadron Commander was one of the few officers in the unit to make the move he is checked out in the new jets Most all of the new personnel are from Strategic Air Command
Hurricane Hunters
Since 1946 the Hurricane Hunters have provided the U S Weather Bureau with aroundtheclock hurricane warning information and although this is only a portion of their weather gathering mission it is for this they are most famous
The drama of a handful of men pitting their aircraft and skill against the fury of a hurricane and penetrating its very eye to learn its secrets is as exciting as a Canaveral Space Shot
The introduction of the WB47s will revolutionize weather observation techniques Nine WB47 aircraft will be assigned to Hunter The 53rd will resume normal operations from Hunter on the first of January

Beginning on page four of this issue you will find a most interesting report from the Georgia Ports Authoritys European Director Laurence W Magrath in which he makes several observations on how this lack of real knowledge about the growing south has affected our trade relations with European countries
Furthermore our GPA European Director points out the avenues that he feels must be traveled to stimulate a new awareness of the fast growing industrial south and in particular the modern facilities of our Georgia ports
Wed be delightd Suh if youd take a few leisurely moments to read Magraths account of Our Mission to Europe

OUR MISSION TO EUI
LAURENCE W MAGRATH
GPA European Director
In business there is no substitute for persontoperson contact Every American has heard of the Fuller Brush Man and how a vast enterprise has been built up from the activities of energetic doortodoor salesmen who have not been afraid to take NO for an answer and as a result produced substantial sales
The GPA Mission to Europe we almost said Crusade to Europe calling to mind a certain distinguished author offers a parallel in the short weeks since it was initiated
Steamship operators international forwarders port and inland and many export managers naturally excepted we have found that little or nothing is known of the tremendous industrial developments of which the City of Atlanta is the hub and the Ports of Savannah and Brunswick Georgia are the gateways
I
vFJ
When we have spoken of Atlanta as a city of over 1000000 population and growing rapidly with 3500 local branches of nationally known firms that it is the banking center of SouthEast USA there have been reactions of astonishment some almost of incredulity
Mansions and Mint Juleps Too many Europeans still have a pleasant mental picture of the indolent atmosphere of the Deep South darkies working in the cotton fields cultured Southern gentlemen reclining on porches of Colonial mansions sipping mint juleps and last but not least the Georgia of Gone With the Wind with its fascinating characters Scarlett OHara and Rhett Butler conjuring up the visions of Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable

These are well known to all Europeans regardless of language Maybe too the NS SAVANNAH may ring a bell There you have it and that is
what the Georgia Mission to Europe contends with
Many persons do not even know whether the Port of Savannah is on the East Coast or on the Gulf and grope unashamedly for a map Nor have they a remote conception of the fine port and its facilities to say nothing of the many industrial enterprises within its bounds
and nearby This is the welcome challenge GPA faces in Europe
The Wheels of Bonn
On July 1 1963 the European Direcs v tor was appointed On July 5 we had our first official meeting with Troost p DArcy International our European advertising agents in Duesseldorf On August 1 the office in BonnBad Godes I berg was fully operational
Why Bonn The answer is that in
Europe today there is no more central location The spokes of the wheel of 4 which Bonn is the center radiate equi
distantly to most all of Europes important business and industrial centers

Those who wish to visit us can do so equally easily but after all the mission above all else is one where we must make the calls and contacts and the results are already apparent through correspondence and otherwise
Venture Into the Outer World The first significant venture into the outer world of international commerce was participation in the FIATA International Forwarding Agents Association Congress at Lucerne Switzerland September 2327
Here were gathered representatives of the elite of forwarders from all European countries and USA Personal contacts and conversations were established with many in an effortless man

Speaking of publications we find the Georgia AnchorAge is a genuine ambassador of GPA and is wellliked and read in Europe not merely as a propaganda piece but because it is colorful and has a strong human interest appeal for European businessmen who begin more and more to recognize the vast potentialities of the State of Georgia and its 13State hinterland
A Hinterland of Opportunity
The word Hinterland by the way is one which every European businessman understands GPA Bonn happens and that is no coincidence either to sit astride one of the main arteries of twoway traffic serving and drawing from Central Europe the Rhine which from its navigable terminus at Basle Switzerland to the great ports of Rotterdam and Antwerp moves annually over 100 million tons of bulk and general cargo in both directions Much of it is in trade with the East Coast of USA
Likewise do the Ports of Hamburg and Bremen serve the vast hinterland not only of industrial Germany itself

but also other Central European countries
Should Eastern Europe open up we shall then see the revitalization of another important hinterland route the Elve the classic waterway to and from industrial Czechoslovakia and other countries
Commerce to and from Europe is largely a matter of geography which independent and regardless of politics exerts a vast influence on the destiny of its peoples For example Frankfurt in the Middle Ages by virtue of its location was the crossroads of the caravan routes from northeast to southwest and from northwest to southeast Today it is no different as exemplified by the fact that more than 1500 trains move daily in and out of its vast railroad station
The Georgia Ports Authority Logo with its arrows East and West speaks for itself and the European mission is destined to play a distinctive role in terms of twoway trade
Our travels necessarily have so far taken place with a circumscribed area not too far from base As we move further afield north south and west we shall have more to say about our mission

For New Industries
In cheap water transportation the state of Georgia has an excellent lure for the aero space industries
These are the comments of Harold E Bisbort who recently assumed the post of Director of the Industry Division in the Georgia Department of Industry and Trade
In this post he will have a key role in Georgias expanding and more aggressive industrial development program
In commenting on the significance of the states inland waterways Bisbort says As we get more and more into the space program the launching vehicles are going to get bigger and bigger and they can only be shipped by water
Georgia not only has navigable inland waterways but a long coastline which isnt too far removed from Cape Canaveral one of the nations chief missile launching sites
Currently there is great potential that industrial establishments even outside the space industry will capitalize on the cheaper water transportation and the assured supplies of industrial water that are available along the Apalachicola Flint Chattahoochee and Savannah river systems
A retired Army engineer Bisbort spent approximately six years in the Corps of Engineers working in the Southeast area of the United States and is a firm believer in the importance of water transportation

Editors Note
The growing importance of Augusta as a major marketing and distribution center was recently emphasized by Frederick H Mac Vicar Advertising and Public Relations Director of Columbia Nitrogen Corporation in an address before the Uptown Kiwanis Club of Augusta
The following are key excerpts from his text which we feel are significant and worthy of sharing with our readers

I

o

AUGUSTA GA
VY
Center of 6Billion Dollar J
First of all lets assume that I am trying to sell you the president of a corporation located in Cleveland Ohio on the advantages of locating part of your operation in Augusta You are a food manufacturer
Up until now your company has marketed its products exclusively in the East North Central and Middle Atlantic Regions However you have recently announced that you will expand your marketing operations to include the South Atlantic Region
Effective Marketing
First of all Mr Corporation President I would like to show you how one corporation is already effectively marketing its products from Augusta Columbia Nitrogen Corporation is a new company with its plant and its headquarters located in this Georgia port From here it markets its products in thirtyseven states east of the Rockies through a total of thirtythree sales and distribution points located in thirteen states
Companies with extremely wide and complex patterns of marketing and distribution are successfully conducting their business from Augusta at this time It is already an accepted and successful center for marketing and distribution
Now Mr Corporation President let me show you why Augusta is a logical and profitable marketing and distribution center But first let me ask you if you think two hundred miles is an excessive distance in terms of distribution of your products Im sure you will agree that it is not and certainly selling and distribution costs would be quite low if you could stay within this range in your marketing efforts
6Billion Plus Buying Power
marketing area AUGUSTAS GOLDEN CIRCLE since it consists of a circle with a mapdistance radius of one hundred and fifty miles the center of which is Augusta Total effective buying power of this area is estimated at 6054000000
Within Augustas Golden Circle there are eight primary metropolitan markets Augusta Atlanta Macon Savannah in Georgia Columbia Charleston and Greenville in S C and Charlotte in N C In addition there are three important markets classified as potential metropolitan markets Spartanburg and Anderson in S C and Gastonia in N C All in all there are eleven key markets within an easy road distance of two hundred miles of Augusta
According to Sales Managements Survey of Buying Power for 1963 these eleven markets account for 9 of the total effective buying power of the entire South Atlantic Region They represent 25 of the total buying power of the states of Georgia North Carolina and South Carolina 8 of all the households in the South Atlantic Region are located in these markets and the effective buying income per household in these markets is 29 higher than the South Atlantic Region as a whole
The GOLDEN CIRCLE markets Mr Corporation President boast a total effective buying income of more than 6 BILLION DOLLARS The eleven markets have a greater effective buying power than any single metropolitan area in the United States with the exception of seven New York Los Angeles Philadelphia Detroit Chicago Boston and San Francisco It is by any definition a tremendous market
Getting closer to your specific needs taxable retail sales in the Golden Circle in 1962 amounted to almost 4 BILLION DOLLARS
In Augusta we are extremely fortunate in that we are the center of a circle which contains one of the richest marketing areas in the United States I call this
And most important to you Mr Corporation President retail food sales in 1962 rang the cash registers to
the tune of nearly 870 MILLION DOLLARS
12
GEORGIA ANCHORAGE
Simple Arithmetic
H
mM
Simple arithmetic Mr Corporation President tells me that if you reach your sales projection of one fifth of one percent of the total dollars spent for food in the GOLDEN CIRCLE you will attain an annual sales volume of 1740000 On the other hand if you reach only half of your sales projection in the first year you will attain a volume of 870000 which is not far short of your goal of one million dollars in sales at retail
As for marketing and distribution services in Augusta alone we are served by thirty trucking companies three airlines five railroads and since we are an important inland port barge lines from the sea We have a jetage airport that can handle about anything that flies and an excellent network of highways serving all the GOLDEN CIRCLE markets Also we have a complete range of marketing services and advertising media to serve you in your marketing efforts
In summary the strategic location of Augusta makes it a key center for marketing and distribution and we hope you will agree that from this location you can produce distribute and market your products efficiently economically and above all profitably

By VIRGINIA L KAUBLE Technical Liaison Officer
The Corps of Engineers is the only agency assigned to develop and maintain the nations harbors and rivers Last year Savannah District Army Engineers spent the sum of 1783550 on maintenance of area harbors river channels and waterways Of this figure 1333493 was spent to maintain Savannah Harbor and the 10mile channel from the Atlantic Ocean with an additional 288945 spent on Brunswick Harbor
Savannah District civil works functions embrace the drainage basins tributary to the Atlantic Ocean between Port Royal Sound S C and the harbor at Fernandina Fla including the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway between these points This area covers the headwaters of the Savannah river in southwestern North Carolina a considerable portion of western South Carolina eastern Georgia and a small portion of northwestern Florida
Kings Island Turning Basin
The Rivers and Harbors of 1963 passed by Congress authorized a project which will provide for the enlargement of the Kings Island Turning Basin within Savannah Harbor It is estimated that it will cost about 605000 to accomplish the job While the improvement work has been authorized it will be necessary for Congress to appropriate the funds to start work The 600 x TOO7 turning basin would be increased in size to 900 x 1000
Longrange planning for future improvement of the Savannah Harbor is underway and Savannah
District has prepared a report recommending widening and deepening of the bar channel at Tybee Beach from 500 with a depth of 36 to 600 x 40 deep The 10mile channel into the city would be widened to 500 and 38 deep from 400foot width and 34foot depth From the city up to the Georgia State Port in Garden City it is proposed to widen the channel to 400 with a depth of 38 from 200foot width and 30foot depth The cost of this project is in the neighborhood of 7 million It is estimated that tonnage into Savannah Harbor would double by 1990 with these improvements
Other studies deal with the sedimentation problem in Savannah Harbor and ways and means to eliminate or reduce the more than one million dollars spent annually on dredging In this connection a model of the Savannah Harbor has been built at the Corps Waterways Experiment Station at Vicksburg Mississippi and tests are now being made to determine what remedial measures need to be taken to correct the sedimentation problem and to reduce annual maintenance of the Savannah Harbor You can readily see that the Engineers are looking out for the taxpayers dollar as well as providing means for more efficiently and adequately maintaining Savannah Harbor
The Public Health Service is also utilizing the model at Vicksburg in studying water pollution problems within the harbor and ways and means to take corrective measures to overcome this evergrowing menace
GEORGIA ANCHORAGE
The Savannah Harbor maintained by the Savannah District Army Engineers at a cost of 1333493 last year The average annual waterborne traffic for 19521961 was 4042000 tons The 1961 traffic was about 4116000 tons

Savannah River Below Augusta
The last construction contract was completed in January of this year by Savannah District Army Engineers on a 37 million navigation project to improve channel conditions on the Savannah River below Augusta Ga Maintenance work is continuing however to stabilize a 9foot channel on a yearround basis
The project as authorized by the River and Harbor Act of May 17 1950 provided for a channel 9 feet deep and 90 feet wide extending from the upper end of Savannah Harbor at a point about 1500 feet below Highway 17 bridge to the head of navigation at Augusta 3 miles above Fifth Street Bridge a distance of about 199 miles The design of the 9foot channel is based upon a stream flow of 5800 cubic feet per second
The Engineers completed an earlier project back in 1939 on this stretch of the Savannah River which provided a channel depth of 6 feet and a width of 75 feet This project included a dam
Looking downstream the focal point is on the U S Hopper Dredge Gerig at work in Savannah Harbor Industry in downtown Savannah is seen

The lure of the sea and the oceans spray
For centuries youngsters of all ages have found a peculiar fascination with boats and ships The ultimate accomplishment for many of these bathtub captains would be to someday stand at the helm of their very own vessel and ply with trade routes of the seven seas
But for most of them the family bathtub seems to suffice at least when they are 2 years old as is Capt SteVe of the SS Noble household
We do recommend however that in the future some sort of code of the sea be established to prevent these bathtub captains from returning to their watery post after theyve put on their pajamas and gotten ready for bed Or perhaps the first mate might just pull the plug upon taking command
Furthermore we recommend that captains shippers and transportation folk of all rank and station give careful attention to our new monthly feature found on page 19 SAVANNAHS CONSOLIDATED SAILING SCHEDULE

TONS AND TONS OF PAPER WORK
Whether you figure it in German French or Spanish it all adds up the same tons and tons of paper work
Today Union BagCamp Paper Corporations facility in Savannah stands as the largest pulptocontainer plant in the world Its products reach into the four corners of our 50state nation and to 44 foreign countries
In 1962 some 83000 tons of Union BagCamp paper paper related products and byproducts of the paper making process moved through the port of Savannah destined for world markets This export tonnage represents approximately 10 million dollars
Variety of Products
In addition to its familiar products of bags paper paperboard and corrugated boxes and sheets Union BagCamps Savannah plant also is developing a growing market for tall oil rosin and other products like Honeycomb which is used in building trades for doors and partitions
Tall Oil a byproduct of the kraft paper making process is produced at Savannah and shipped out in drums as well as bulk for use by other manufacturers in making detergents plastics wax adhesives paints disinfectants and rubber products such as auto tires and garden hoses
The Georgia Ports Authoritys modern deepwater facilities and its extensive commercial warehousing at Savannah will continue to play an important role in the paper industry as new markets new uses and new ideas are developed in the years ahead

New 200000 warehouse and bagging facility to be constructed is shown on extreme right of the above engine GPA inland barge facilities located at Bainbridge All other installations shown in the above sketch are a
full operation
200000 ADDITION IS ANNOUNCED FOR I
The Geor gia Ports Authority has announced plans to expand the services and facilities at Bainbridge the states first inland port on the Flint River Work will begin early in 1964 on a new 200000 warehouse and bagging facility
The Georgia Ports Authority will match a 100000 government grant recently announced in Washington by Representative J L Pilcher of Georgias second congressional district The grant was approved by the Housing and Home Finance Agency under its accelerated public works program An additional 50000 has been authorized by the GPA for machinery and equipment
The new warehouse will be used for the handling of bulk materials such as grain commodities and fertilizer materials Upon completion this facility will
enable the port to handle some business which has had to be turned down for about six months because of the lack of space and storage facilities
Chairman of the Georgia Ports Authority Robert C Norman has expressed deep appreciation for the efforts of Congressman Pilcher and others who have helped to secure the federal grant for this new facility Chairman Norman said that the new warehouse and bagging facility will enable the port to handle larger volumes of shipping than ever before
Traffic from and to the Gulf of Mexico moves over the Apalachicola River through locks of the Woodruff Dam in and out of the Flint River
The new Bainbridge facility should be completed and in operation later in 1964

The Georgia Ports Authority in turning back the calendar is proud of the many friends and customers it has served since it began operations in 1953
One of the earliest and lasting friendships over these past ten years has been the Ludlow Corporation of Needham Heights Massachusetts importers of jukebak for the growing rug industry
The facilities of our Georgia Ports Authority both shipside and storage have become a regular part of this firms traffic and transportation pattern
In commenting on the GPA operation Jack Brown Southern Sales Manager for Ludlow states Although we consider the warehousing and unloading facilities of the Georgia Ports Authority as among the finest anywhere we are even more impressed with the efficiency of operation

and the desire of GPA personnel to be of genuine service to its customers
Browns enthusiasm for Georgia Ports and their facilities is substantiated by the fact that Ludlow jukebak is shipped through Savannah to such distant points as Canada Pennsylvania and numerous locations around the southeastern United States
The same facilities and service afforded the Ludlow Corporation are the reasons for our Georgia Ports Authoritys continued growth and expansion

GIFT WRAPPING
EXTRAORDINAIRE
VFIFT WRAPPING PROBLEMS As a public service feature of the Georgia AnchorAge we would like to offer the following gift wrap suggestions
Lets use a 6ton tractor that special gift for the man who has everything First you get a tractor the railroad will be happy to deliver one to your door Next you pardon the expression strip it down to make for a neater package Simply remove each of the 1700pound wheels the fenders the front axles and a few other miscellaneous parts
Next mount the chassis on a base and you are well on your way to a package that will be opened first on Christmas morning Attach end panels sides and a top Fasten together step back and behold youve done it Maybe add a touch of ribbon for the festive occasion and the recipient will never know whats inside it wont rattle when shaken
If you still think that gift wrapping is not your cupoftea you may call on Jerry Ney VicePresident of the Savannah Boxing Plant Inc They do it all the time They are headquartered right on the GPAs Garden City property
We might add that if you prefer to pick a pair Jerry will pack the smaller twoton tractors two to a box
