New City Directory Suffers From Army Call for Men St. Petersburg's new 1941 city directory the streamlined R. L. Polk digest which discloses where and why everyone lives in the Sunshine City rolled off the Jacksonville presses in time to start circulation here yesterday. It has 692 pages but they dun't conceal the fact that the city's steady growth until last year didn't remain permanent in the Polk pages. Movement of persons out of this area for defense jobs has lowered the official total slightly. In P30 the resident total started at 27,536; by 1938, it had climbed to 47.176; in 1940 was 49,640 but in 1941 is 48,224, according to Mr. Polk's weary .compilers. Albeit a slip in population, however, St. Petersburg finds itself with 386 different kinds of enterprises from "abstracts of .titles" to "zoological gardens." Jack O. Aardema and Gordon G. Zylch still begin and end the names. The Zylch alias has been a steady customer in city directory and phone books. Actually, it's the address for a household of young bachelors on the south side, who from time to time lend various forenames and initials to adorn the Zylch finale. Any Hitlers are conspicuously absent but seven Hesses and 14 Churchills made the grade. There are three Gents recorded but two of 'em really are ladies. So is one Husband. To further the informal name fun, there are Redheads, Whiteheads, Great-heads and Woodheads; Ices, Knives, Lonestars, Pancakes, Whitefeathers and Toots included. St. Petersburg also has citizens named Gentle, Proper, Upright, Polite, Friendly, Faithful and Holy. The most euphoniously named lady Is Grace Greece. There is one Goodfriend, one Poet, one Prophet, one Outlaw, I STICK TO THE SMOKE OF SLOWER-BURNING CAMELS GIVES YOU 28 LESS NICOTINE ' than the average of the 4 other largest-selling cigarettes tested less than any of them according to independent scientific tests of tht smoke itself.

Although the 1941 directory lists 48,224 names, in St. Petersburg, Gulf port, Pass - a - Grille beach and Pinellas Park, for the total population ol St. Peters burg proper, the publishers quote the official 1940 United States census report of 60,812.

FRANK Conference Honors Wahlman St. Petersburg gained national recognition again last week when the Building Officials' Confer-j ence or America, ai us annual meeting in Kalamazoo, Mich., named John Wahlman, city superintendent of building, a member of that organization's executive committee. , All future St. Petersburg primaries will be city-wide if a legislative act to make the office of mayor elective is passed and affirmed by referendum vote. The act provides that a mayor be elected every two years, thus the designating primaries would be city-wide so far as that office is concerned. Selection of coun-cilmanic candidates. however, would still remain a district affair. Under provisions of the mayoralty act, St. Petersburg would elect its first mayor in 1942. A companion bill provides salary for the mayor at the rate of $150 a month. If this is also affirmed by the voters in a referendum election, political observers are predicting a record flood of designating petitions from a small army of prospective candidates in the 1942 campaign. Stabbing Follows Fight Over Child Elma Gaines, negro, 928 Nineteenth street alley south, was treated for cuts on the back and neck last night at Mercy hospital, following an altercation in her home with another negro woman.
