RED CROSS DOES


HELPFUL WORK


IN GULF COUNTY

Local Relief Is Governed By
'Enrollment Dollars That
Are Given

DRIVE STARTS NOV. 13

Committees Named For Pori
St Joe and Wewahitchka
Membership Drives

For .more than 50 years the
r merican Red Cross, through its
far-reaching activities,: has main
trained a barrier against the forces
of natural disintegration which in
evitabiy follow natural catastro
phes. A greatly increased member
ship in thte Red. Cross is needed
this year, not only to help meet
obligations at home but also
abroad and will demonstrate to
the world that there is a bond be-
tween men and nations more last-
ing than the spoils of victory ana
more satisfying than the pursuits
of war.
Gulf county's annual Red Cross
Roll Call, from November 11 to
30, is your opportunity to help
_ your own people, your countrymen,
'the world. The Red Cross is an
-organization that,. serves every-
-Whrere daid everyone 'Imphrfii~aly,
without regard to race, creed or
color. On November 13 or soon
thereafter, the Red Cross Roll
Call will -give every man and wo-
m* an an opportunity to enroll for
another year.
Everyone knows of the world-
'wide work that is done by the
Red Cross, .but quite often it is
-forgotten that the Red Cross
works constantly at home. For
every dollar collected, 50 cents re-
'mains in Gulf county for local re-
lief. In 1939 the Gulf County Chap-
ter of the Red Cross assisted In
the hospitalization of two chit-
,dren who probably would have
died 'nad they not received hos-
.pital care. These cases were
'handled in conjunction with the
(American Legion post, the Lions
Laub and private individuals.
The local chapter providedyeast
for pellagra treatment for approxi-
mately 100 persons in this county:
provided food and shelter for tem-
porary relief of 10 destitute fair-
;ilies; provided transportation for
:three destitute families to enable
them to reach relatives in other
.localities; provided medical relier
'and physical comfort for two
hopeless invalids; provided first
aid textbooks for the entire county
for instruction under direction or
the county health nurse; provided
a heater and water cooler for the,
county health unit office; assisted,
in conjunction with the American
Legion, in providing shoes for
four destitute children, and con-
tributed to the Chinese relief funse.

CHIEF JONES WARNS
THOSE WHO HAVE NOT
PAID CITY STREET TAX

Chief of Police Troy Jones an-
nounced yesterday that tomorrow
will positively be the last day on
which street taxes may be paid
without penalty. After tomorrow
warrants will be served on all
those who have not paid their $2
street tax and they will be haled
before the municipal judge.


Telephone System

IsBeing Improved

For Better Service

St. Joseph Telephone Compan)
Expects To Be In New Home
r Shortly After First of Year

: For some time past line crews
of the St. Joseph Telephone conm
pany have been busy installing
new poles in preparatiing for re
placing of present wires with ap
t proximately five miles of cable In
order to do away with the old un
sightly wires and to give better
service to customers when the
company moves to its new quar-
Sters in the Florida Bank building
on Fifth street which is rapidly
nearing completion.
J. L. Sharit, manager of the
telephone company, states that
they anticipate moving into their
-new quarters shortly after the
first of the year and that the serv-
ice in Port St. Joe then will be on
a par with any city in the state.
New equipment for the exchange
has been ordered since September
15, but due'to unsettled conditions
delivery has been delayed.
In 1937 there were approxi-
mately 135 telephones in use in
the city, while today the number
exceeds 300, whTch speaks well for
the growth of the city in that
short period of time.

Lighted Buoys

for Bay Entrance

Much-Needed Equipment Now Be-
ing Manufactured for Light-
house Depart-iment

A much-needed facility for St.
Joseph's Bay, lighted buoys to
mark the entrance and channel,
are now assured, according to in-
formation received by Mayor J. L.
Sharit and the Port St. Joe Cham-
ber of Commerce.
Letters received from E. C.
Merrill, superintendent of light-
houses, U. S. Treasury Depart-
ment, states that funds were at-
lotted several months ago for im'
proving the marking of these
channels and orders placed to-
th'e necessary equipment, which
is now being manufactured.
Mr. Merrill states that it will be
several months before the markers
will be available for assembly ana
establishment, but that every er-
fort is being male to expedite the
work.
The equipment will include two
large buoys and six smaller buoys.
The 'lack of lighted buoys for
ships arriving and departing after
dark has been considered of vital
importance since this port has
come to the fore in the past two
years as one of the fastest grow-
ing shipping points between Pen-
sacola and Tampa.

After hearing Mr. Bellows, the
club voted unanimously to aid in
the Roll Call drive. The club also

ment as individuals

Possibilities of Running

Senator Spessard Holland of
Bartow was a visitor in Port St.

lic pulse regarding his aspirations
to the governor's chair.

companied by his wife and Drew
Branch of Tallahassee, met at the

could do for the state if placed
in the governor's chair.

not yet made his official an-

resignation of Judge Akerman.

WELFARE LEAGUE

IS ORGANIZED BY

LOCAL WOMEN


Motive Is to Establish Fund to
Guarantee Hospital Care
In Emergencies

ASK CO-OPERATION

Drive Now Underway for An-
nual Subscriptions to This
Most Wortthy Cause

A group of local women made
up of Mrs. H. A. Kidd, Mrs. L. E.
Robertson, Mrs. E. Clay Lewis,
Mrs. Joseph Mira, Mrs. Edward
McGowin and Mrs. George L.
Snowden have formed what is to
be known as "The Port St. Joe
Welfare League" 'for the purpose
of establishing a fund to provide
hospital care for the destitute in
emergencies. The work is being
done in co-operation with the Gulf
county health unit.
-It is pointed out by these civic-
minded ladies that with no county,
state or other hospital with free
facilities for the care of the penni-
less in emergencies, it means that
the unfortunate often are left In
needless pain and misery or suw-
fer loss of life. This was 'for.cbly
-brought home. to al l qt:.n- re-
cently when a local child, seriously
injured by a hog, was refused ad-
mittance to a hospital in a neiga-
boring city until the necessary en-
trance fees were forthcoming.
In this particular instance, the
child was fortunate in that one of
our citizens guaranteed, the money.
However, there is not always
someone ready or able to act se
quickly in sudden distress, ana
there are occasions when minutes
may mean the difference between
life and death.
It is the hope of the welfare
league to establish a fund which
will be immediately available to
guarantee care for the destitute in
emergencies. To come to the res-
cue of even a few will require
large sums, and so the co-opera-
tion of not only each individual
but every organization is hope(
for.
The league expects to be in a
position to help the needy at less
crucial moments, but the subscrip-
tions solicited annually will be
used solely for emergency hos-
pitalization cases.
It has been decided to give
Miss Enid Mathison, district nurse,
the allocation of the funds sui-
scribed, as her work ably fits he-
for this responsibility.
Anyone desiring to subscribe to
this worthy cause may send. their
money-any amount-to Mrs. G.
L. Snowden, treasurer of the
league.

The Low Down
from
Willis Swamp

Editor The Star:
I see where there is a campaign
on to sell apples. And the paper,
it says -there is a big crop and
apples are juicer than ever. But
with a war in Europe, they are
havin' trouble In getting' boats to
ship 'em in-so us folks here in
the U. S. we gotta eat more of
them apples.
And Bob Clark in Minneapolis,
he used to tell a story about a guy
who was goin' into town and he
met a friend. And this friend says
Si, where you headin' for? And
the guy goin' to town, he says:
Pardner, I'm goin' to town to get
drunk, and how I do dread it!
And it's likewise with me on
apples, and apple cider, and apple
pie, and apple cobbler also
apple-jack.
And there is only one kind of
person who may be opposed to
this apple campaign-and it's. the
doctors. You go to wbrk and eat
a couple apples a day and you
are not gonna be calling' up any
pill roller every time the moon
changes.
Yours, with the low down,
JO SERRA.

GEORGE WASHINGTON AND PEACE
Next week we will observe Armistice Day,
a day which, with the world again in a tur-
moil, should recall to every American mind
George Washington as the devout believer
he was in peace. Throughout the eight years
of the Revolutionary War, General Washing-
ton fought with the aim of peace forever in
mind. During his presidency his scrupulous
efforts to keep the United States out of for-
eign entanglements had as their aim the
single thought of peace.
For Washington, particularly in his later
and more mature years, war had lost what-
ever glamor it might have had in his eyes.
To him, peace was a personal blessing as
much as a goal for the people. Peace meant
to him the enjoyment of his beloved Mount
Vernon with its gracious life and its warn
hospitality. This right to peace he felt he had
won, by whole-hearted devotion to military
victory. He knew the value of an honorable
peace by having paid its price in sacrifice,
in trial, and even in the exposure of his per-
son on the field of battle. ..-- ..
'He proved the sincerity of his love of peace
again and again, by the very readiness to re-
sort to arms once more, when occasion de-
manded. When what is known as the "Whis-
key Rebellion" threatened for a time, early
in his second administration, he lost not a
moment in dispatching troops to put it down.
When he had retired from the presidency to
the enjoyment of Mount Vernon, he cheer-
fully accepted the responsibility of com-
mander-in-chief once more, when our differ-
ences with France brought the threat of war.
Fortunately the storm-cloud passed, but
Washington had proved his readiness to re-
sort to the battlefield had necessity de-
manded.
But the necessity of war alone induced
Washington to take up arms. History2jrccbras
what a fighter he was, ',-l 'i rlie cause was
just and the fiJi was forced upon him. in
every other--fespect he was a warrior who
abhorred war.
-. George Washington had his Armistice Day
when England signed articles of peace with
the victorious Colonies in 1783. The moment
the cause for which he had fought was won
and triumph was a reality, he turned his back
on military glory. As soon as decorum per-
mitted, he resigned his commission to con-
gress and turned his face toward home, never
again, he hoped, to be drawn away from
peaceful pursuits as a private citizen. Ano
this was the act of a man who, but a year
before, had but to lift his hand to grasp the
dictatorial power tendered him by an army
that adored him and that raged at the neglect
of congress. His devoted officers virtually
begged him to assume monarchial powers,
and his only answer was indignant refusal.
So one of the greatest of soldiers remained
one of the greatest advocates of peace, but,
be it remembered, always the peace of honoi.
As head of the army he proved how honor-
ably a war may be won; as president of the
.United States he proved how a statesman
may preserve peace with honor. On more
than one occasion the country, during his
two administrations, faced the risk of being
drawn into European conflicts, even as we
are faced with that risk today. Washington


saved the country from the peril, but he saw
to it equally well that its honor was in no
way sullied. We could use another Washing-
ton today.
In the great political classic he left us, his
Farewell Address, delivered to the American
people as he laid down the presidency, the
note of peace is sounded in lines that should
be forever branded in memory:
". .. nothing is more essential than
that permanent, inveterate antipathies
against particular nations and passionate
attachments for others should be ex-
cluded; and that in place of them just
and amicable feelings toward all should
be cultivated. The nation which indulges
towards another an habitual hatred or
an habitual fondness, is in some degree
a slave. It is a slave to its animosity or
to its affection, either of which is suf-
ficient to lead it astray from its duty and
its interest."
The passage ends on a note which coun-
sels freedom from these entanglements for
the sole purpose of maintaining our peace.
On Armistice Day this year the country
will be reminded again of those who gave
,their lives for our country and who sleep In
the peace of death. Over their bodies George
Washington would pronounce his blessing. In
deeds as eloquent as his words, they pro-
claimed America's faithful adherence to the
principle that he laid down for our perpetual
guidance-peace as long as it is honorable,
but war to the death when it is forced upon
us, and always for the purpose of restoring
peace again.

LET'S CALL QUITS!
It's time the newspaper fraternity of Flor-
ida got together! Year after year, the news-
papers have rallied nobly to the cause to help
sell motor vehicle licenses. More recently our i
aid was invited to sell state drivers' licenses, r
We have sounded the deadline in people h
eyes and ears and uttered solemn warnings,
threats and thunder. F
Yielding to appeals from officials to help t
them put over something, by a certain date, ,
we have devoted space and all our powers of I
,persuasion to telling people that it is their a
duty to plank down a certain amount of cash a
in exchange for a tax or a piece of paper, all P
this to be done on a certain date or else. .
But invariably, the date comes, and noth-
ing happens. The newspapers have done their e
best to help through threats, cajolery and h
deadline warnings. However, -the dear public c
has been through all of this too many times
and knows that when the final date comes a
nothing is going to happen to delinquents. h
There are too many of them. And of course,.
money is still forthcoming from thousands.
Soft measures must prevail until the cash is
in and the number of delinquents cut down
to a figure that officials can cope with. W
But really, the press of Florida should get a
together and gently refuse to be a party to
any more deadline ultimatums.-St. Augus-
tine Record.
h
FIGURES ON EUROPE'S WARS c
In glancing over the proceedings of the f
neutrality debate as published in the Con- d
gressional Record we find some interesting e
figures: b
In the some 155 years of American inde-
pendence, the British Empire has fought 54 c
wars, lasting a total of 102 years, or has been d
at war with someone for 68 per cent of the "
time that the United States has existed. a
During this same period the French have o
fought 53 wars. These lasted a total of 99 b
years. In other words France has been fight- C
ing somebody 66 per cent of the time that g
America was developing from an infant na-
tion to the greatest and most prosperous na-
tion in the history of the world. ;
And it also showed that during a quarter s
of a century of this period England and 1(
France were fighting each other. P
All of which seems to indicate that Europe S
has always had and probably always ,vill g
have chronic war pains.


Too Late to Classify
By RUSSELL KAY


When Judge. Alexander Aker-
man announced his decision to re-
tire, he tossed a beautiful monkey
wrench into the Florida political
picture that has caused a "slow
down' strike in both the sena-
torial and gubernatorial cam-
paigns-to say nothing of provid-
ng both our senior and junior
United States senators with ample
material for a series of first-class
headaches.
To the ordinary run-of-the-mill
Floridians-the farmer in his field,
he grocery clerk, the mill hand,
he shop keeper-the resignation
if a federal judge and the ap-
pointment of a successor doesn't
appear as anything to get all hot
.nd bothered about, and a large
portion of our population is totally
Unaware of the fact that such a
problemm even exists.
Politicians and politically-mine-
d, however, are all a-twitter. They
ave been running 'round In
ircles for days, pulling wires and
oat-tails, writing letters, sending
elegrams, holding conference
and carrying on like a flock of
ens watching' a hawk do a power
ive.
You find them blocking the trai-
ic on street corners, in a 'huddle
t the courthouse square. Rumor
nd gossip runs riot. A lot of folks
who don't really know any more
bout it than Adam's off-ox will
rab you by the coat lapel and
explain the situation in detail.
These master minds and dope-
ters are having a regular Roman
holiday. They lead you over in a
corner and whisper in your ear:
It's in the bag. I got it straight
rom Washington. Senator An-
rews is gonna do it. Then Gov-
rnor Fred. will resign and that'in
make Turner Butler governor, and:
e'll appoint Fred."
So you forget about Hitler and
Chamberlain for a minute and pon-
er over this startling local news.
Mebbe so," you say and then
long comes another wise guy
vho informs you that "Andrews is
ut. He's over the age limit and
besides he don't want it. Jim
elementss is the boy. Pepper's;
otta take care of him-he can't
o anything else!"
So you bite your fingernails and
scratch your head and wonder
ome more. Then along comes
somebody else with the REAL
owdown: "Clements is out-its
ositively 'no dice' for Jim. Funie
Iteed is the boy. He'll get It. you
wait and see-swell guy-make a
ood judge, too."
The next guy you meet claims


he has been father confessor to
Andrews for years, and while its
not for publication, of course, you
can go ahead and lay all your
chips on John Cone of Tampa. An
hour later, at the Rotary club, you
learn that Doyle Carlton is the
fair-haired boy. The Fuller brusn
man tells your wife that Judge
Worth Trammell of Miami will be
the next federal judge. Tony Per-
mont, the fish peddler, gives you
a wink as he wraps up a slab of
mullet, and says: "Whatta you
tink, Mayor Chancey he's a gonna
be boss man United States down
here pretty soon-Senator Peeper
he's a fix."
And so it: goes. The -more you
hear the less you know. It's like
"Who sank the Athenia?" or
"How high is up?" A grand and
glorious tempest in a teapot.' As
this is written, the beautiful
plum still hangs on the tree. Gath-'
ered beneath it are countless
hopefuls who stand with out-
stretched hands and tears run.
ning down their cheeks. Senators
Andrews and Pepper, In whose
back yard the tree stands, hav,
only to shake it. But unless they
unite and shake in the same di-
rection, it is possible that Mr.
Roosevelt may push 'em both out
of the way and pick the prize him-
self.
The thing that the politicians,
big and. little, seem to overlook
is the fact that the post of fed-
eral judge is not the personal and
private property of this or that,
senator or any group or clique. Td
consider such an appointment as!
an opportunity to pay a political:
debt, favor a henchman, influence
votes, or for any other selfish
purpose, is little short of criminal.
The people of Florida are con-
cerned only with the appointment
of a man fully qualified for the
job: the best man that can be
found, be he Democrat or Repub-
lican or Independent; a judge
well versed in the law; an honest.
upright, honorable man, fair in
.his judgment, unbiased, fearless
and able.

a score of 54 to 25. This gives
the local aggregation four wins
and one loss to date.
The Frink boys played excellent
ball, but the Sharks really hit
that line Friday. Ed Hufft, half-
back, got a charley-horse which
turned out- to be quite bad, while
Dave Maddox, end, sprained his
shoulder and won't be in the game
today.
The team goes to Altha today
for- a return match and while the
local boys- put it all over them in
their game here, .the Altha squad
has greatly improved- since then
and give promise oT a tard-fought
tussle. Wewould like all our foot-
ball supporters to come to Altha
today to root for the team..

Student Council

In First Session

Many Matters Are Discussed By
Governing Body of Pupils

The student council met last
Tuesday for its first meeting of
the year with P. K. Johnson, the
president, presiding. Some rules
were brought up as to how many
subjects members have to pass in
order to remain in the council.
Organization was also effected and
Principal McPherson asked that
members talk it up in the various
rooms about getting the boys-:to
help in hauling some asphalt from
across the street to make walks
between the buildings. It seems
that almost everyone has co-oper-
ated- in this undertaking. The
meeting was adjourned and Thurs-
day set for the next meeting.
At Thursday's session discussion
wag held 'n booths to be managed
by the classes at the Halowe'en
carnival. We also talked about
how we were getting along with
the asphalt hauling.
A definite time for meeting was
set, which will be every two
weeks on Tuesdays during the
fourth period.
The question of whether we
should have rainy day sessions
was brought up by the president.
The matter was discussed for a
considerable time and it was then
decided to hold it over until the
next meeting. Every member of
the council seemed to be in fa-
vor of this rainy day session. At-
ter this bill is passed it will be
up to the teachers to pass it, so
we want all the teachers to re-
member this.
Everyone is urged to mull over
this rainy day session question,
as at the next council meeting it
is likely to be passed.


NEW. SONG INTRODUCED
AT CHAPEL PROGRAM
At the regular chapel program
last.Friday the band rendered..two
new selections in a most credit-
able manner, "God Bless America"
and "The Beer Barrel Polka."
A new song was introduced to
the students for singing at foot-
ball games. It was composed by
Martha Hinson, senior, and is set
to the tune of Notre Dame's "Vic-
tory March." It goes:
Cheer, shout ole St. Joe's name,
Wake up the echo shouting her
.fame.
Send a loyal cheer on high;
Bring down the thunder from the
sky.
Although the odds be great or bs
small,
Ole St. Joe's team will win ove.
all
While our loyal sons are marching
Onward to victory!
Rah! Rah! Rah!

WE WONDER
What sort of bug bit Joe when
he was going to band practice last
Friday right afternoon, or wa-sihi
jitterbuggingg"?
Why all the senior class has
gone in for art lately? (Cartoonist
-they're bound to be.)
Why 0. G. and; L. W; don't
teach, dancing? (Jitterbugs, they
are!)
Why Mr. O. picks out simple
but hard questions for tests?
How that new system of giving
tests is going to work out?
If any of the Sharks have bitten
anyone lately? They are really
powerful!
Why A. S. wears the little plas-
ter on his nose?,
Why all the seniors were so
sleepy Wednesday? Could it have
been too much-Hallowe'en?
What certain senior girl was
surprised when she walked into
the senior room and read "Con-
gratulations, Mrs. "?
_X_- --
Miss Kathleen Saunders, stu-
dent at a Dothan business college,

SURE


MASQUERADE -BALL IS
CONSIDERED SUCCESS

-The Hallowe'en masquerade ball
held Tuesday night at the Centen-
nial auditorium and sponsored by
the Volunteer Fire' Department
and Port St Joe Women's club
was a success from all points of
view-the costumes were many,
varied and original, a neat sum
was realized, the music was ex-
ceptionally good, being furnished
by Miss Bee Haven and her mu-
sicians from Fort Walton, and
everyone had a grand time, which
was the main thing.
Ladies' prize for the best cos-
tume went to Miss Malzie Waters
for her old colonial costume, and
W. C. Roche, in the guise of a
skeleton, carried off the prize for
the men.

Mr. and Mrs. O. N. Williams
