A meeting of the Port St. Joe
Business :Men's 'association Was
held Tuiesday night- in the offices
f :Dr. Bartee at 'the rear of Le-

The matter was discussed at
some length and Mayor J. L.
Sharit and' Commissioner B. A.
Pridgeon, who had been invited
to take part in the meeting, as
sured the business men that the
city would aid in any manner pos-
sible and that the city probably
could make a small donation to
aid the project as well as pay for
the electric current.
Mayor Sharit stated that a simi-

city engineer, had estimated that

Harbor Hearing

Is Set for Dec. 12

Federal Government Will Ask for
Information As to Benefits from
Improvement South Channel

A letter was received this week
by city officials from the United
States engineering office at Mo-
bile stating that a public hearing
will be held at the Port Inn at 1
o'clock, December 12, for the pur-
pose of determining what benefits
would result in the federal gov-
ernment improving and maintain-
ing the south channel in St.
Joseph's Bay.
It is requested that anyone In-
terested, in the proposed improve-
ment be at the hearing and state
the benefits that would be de-
rived, such as additional commerce
coming into our harbor, savings
in transportation costs, conveni-
ence and safety that would be
provided for navigation, and any
other benefits.
The engineering department also
seeks to learn whether or not lo-
cal interests would be willing to
aid in the improvement by finan-
cial contributions.

This is the first sailing vessel
to come into St. Joseph's Bay for
many years and It is anticipated
that the dock will be lined w tM

The lumber company has been
working at top speed the past week

Attorney General Georg. Couper
Gibbs has ruled that the ew state
highway patrolmen who -begin
work December. 4, have full power
to make arrests for traffic viola-
tions either on warrants ir where
they observe the infractin.
Outlining the powers Gibbs
quoted from the 1939 law creating
the commission which sail patrol-
men have the right "to pEtrol:the
public highways and to enforce all
state laws now in effect, or here-
inafter enacted, regulating and
governing traffic, travel 'nd pub-
lic safety upon the highways, and
providing penalties for vblations
thereof, including the operation,
regulation and licensing of motoi
vehicles thereon, with full police
power to bear arms and arrest
persons violating said laws.". '-
The law says patrolmen are not
to he required to patrol city
streets, but empowers ttem to
make arrests within -cities and
towns in their enforcement of th
state traffic'laws.; : .. .
The patrol, now training at
iBradenton, has. ordered 3.2 utomo-
;biles, and 14 motorcycles for its
officers. Cars will be painted Ivory,
!and black-ivory bodies and black
tops and fenders-and -the color
,scheme will be carried out on the
motorcycles. Uniforms will be of
a dark hue, between khaki and
olive drab.

doubtedly the most authentic as

as has ever been shown on the
screen. It makes a smashing cli-
max for a truly powerful picture.


James Cagney and George Raft,
the two champion tough guys of
filindom, are co-starred in "Each
Dawn I Die," which plays Sunday
and Monday at the Port theater.
Raft is a gangster again, while
Cagney is an honest and upright
citizen, but before the end of the
picture there is little to choose
between the tough chief characters
on the score of toughness.
Cagney is a crusading reporter
who has just uncovered evidence
implicating the district attorney in
a graft scandal. Some of the dis-
trict attorney's henchmen carry
out a plot to frame the reporte-
on a drunk driving charge. As .
result, two innocent people are
killed, Jimmy is arrested, con-
victed of manslaughter and sent
to prison for 20 years.
Knowing his innocence, Jimm.

upon freedom. Of all the great nations on the
earth, we alone have the right to think what

ing at large through the woods.
Is it fair to this landowner to have stran-
gers come onto his land without his permis-
sion and bag a flock of Jirds that he himself
may have had his eye on for months? Or
could you blame him for raising a rumpua
if he finds one of his hogs or cows killed by
the careless shot of a hunter?
We'd like to suggest that before hunting
on land belonging to an individual that his
permission be secured first in order to avoid
misunderstandings and problems that might
crop up. Hunters who secure this permission.
should then be mindful of the necessity for
careful handling of their guns to avoid shoot-
ing stock belonging to their hosts.

Hats off to the progressive Business Men's
association which has decided to raise funds
for the stringing of lights throughout the
business section during the holiday season.
We believe this move will more than repay
the investment made in increased holiday
sales.

Do your Christmas shopping NOW-there
is always the possibility that this year we
MIGHT have two Christmases!

Street Tax Collections
Are Mounting Rapidly

City Clerk M. P. Tomlinson an
nounced yesterday that $1,040 has
been collected through the city's
street tax of $2 per head for all
able-bodied men between the ages
of 21 and 50, and that approxi-
mately $460 remains to be col-
lected.
While this money goes into the
street fund, the city commissioners
have agreed to use a similar
amount toward paying for the new
fire truck which is expected to be
delivered next month.
Those who have not .yet paid
their tax are urged to do so at
once, not only to aid in paying
for the new truck, but to avoid
penalty.

NUMBER OF SUBJECTS ARE
CONSIDERED BY COUNCIL
The student council met in reg:
lar session Tuesday of this wee
during the fourth period in tb
senior study hall. A number c
subjects were brought up for di
cussion.
After talking the matter ove
for some time, it was decided tha
the basketball court bill should b
repealed due to the fact that som
of the pupils have to play on th
courts at noon.
A number of students have beel
mysteriously losing their lunche
recently, and this matter was dri
cussed. It was decided that we hai
no one in the school who wouli
deliberately steal anyone's lunch
but perhaps someone would do I
for pure meanness.
The question was also brought
up of having each of the homt
rooms make up a Christmas ban
ket for the underprivileged child
dren of the city. It is understood
that some of the civic organize
tions are going to get up some
thing similar to this, and we wil
co-operate with them in the under
taking.
We are still up in the air aboul
our rainy day sessions, as Princi
pal D. G. McPherson has to con
tact the county superintendent
about the matter.

THANKSGIVING
Why do we observe Thanksgiv-
ing Day as a national holiday'
What do we have to be thankful
for? What were our forefather-
thankful for?
By thanksgiving we mean tht
act of rendering thanks. In th.
United States a day is set aside
(usually the last Thursday in No-
vember) for thanksgiving and
praise to God. for his mercies.
Most people think of feasting
during the Thanksgiving holidays,
but it was not merely a feast for
the Pilgrims, but prayers to Goa
because He had spared them and
helped them to struggle through a
year of hardship.
This custom spread through the
colonies, and during 'the Revolu-
tionary War eight different dayb
were observed for thanksgiving
after signal victories or wonderful
deliveries from danger.
Canada, too, has an annual holi-
day, celebrated in the same man-
ner, with religious services and
family reunions. It is proclaimed a
harvest festival and, unlike 'the
United States, is not always set
for the same date. It is not strictly
a holiday and usually falls in Oc-
tober.
If we people of today are su
good health, have enough food to
eat, clothing, to wear and a home
to live in, we should thank Goa
in every way we can and show
our thanks by helping others who
haven't the necessities of life.

Water Supply of

East Coast Cities

In Serious Danger

Construction of Canals for Drain-
ing Everglades Causing Salt
Water Infiltration

Drainage of the Everglades to
develop rich farm land is having
:ts repercussions. First fires swept
immense areas as the water table
dropped and the topsoil became
dry as tinder, the flames burning
inches deep into the peat-like
muck and marl.
Now sea water has backed up
in the drainage canals and seeped
into Miami's fresh water supply.
Seven of the city's 15 wells have
been closed down and other cities
in the resort section are becom-
ing alarmed and federal aid has
been enlisted for an exhaustive
survey designed to settle the cor-
related Everglades problems for
all time. The investigation is ex-
pected to require nearly four years
and will include soil conservation,
fire prevention, water resources,
wild life preservation, drainage
and irrigation.
No one realized, when levees
were built on the shores of Lake
Okeechobee and 440 miles of
canals were dug to reclaim thou-
sands of acres of the Everglades
marshlands, that the projectmight
backfire should the delicate un-
derground water balance Tie tamp-
ered with.
Valuable crops of winter vege-
tables were grown, cane fields
made sugar manufacturing a big
industry, and cattle raising and
dairying flourished.
But these two unforeseen de-
velopments now call for a survey
of the situation and the federal
government will put up $150,000
and the Interested cities will con-
tribute an equal amount to assist
in the survey, planned to cover
an area from north of Lake Okee-
chobee southward to Key West. -
Drainage of the Everglades was
hailed as a great engineering feat.
Now officials profoundly hope they
can regulate the water flow
started by those canals across the
swamplands, preserving the Ever-
glades as an agricultural gold
mine and at the same time keep-
ing out the salt water.
