FINE OPINION OF CITY

T. W. Wilson, secretary of the
chamber of commerce, this week
-received a letter from George
:Clements, who was in charge of
publicity for the Centennial cele-
bration here a year ago, in which
he says, among other things: "I
sincerely wish my wife and 1
could make the trip to Port St.
Joe if only to renew the fine ac-
quaintances we made. .
can't remember when I formed
such a good opinion of a place as
I did while in the big little city
of Port St. Joe."
Mr. Clements at present is in
Winter Haven, in charge of puu-
licity for the Orange Festival.

PORT HEARING TUESDAY
H. I. Collins of the U. S. Engi-
neer's office in Mobile, will be in

cally of Mrs. G. A. Patton and a
committee of citizens.
"The general public is always
keenly interested infially campaign
that has for its purpose the pro-
tection and preservation of human
life." Mayor Sharit said. "Nation-
wide safety campaigns have suc-
ceeded in reducing fatalities from
accidents year by year, even
though these figures still reach
appalling numbers.
"Preventive medicine has made
,reat strides, but not to medical
science alone can the gradual con-
quest of tuberculosis be credited.
The annual sale of Christmas
Seals, begun in 1907 in the United
States, provides to millions of peo-
ple everywhere an opportunity to
co-operate in this campaign to
"onquer one of mankind's most
dreaded enemies.
"I heartily commend the sale ot
these stamps of health and urge
every citizen of Port St. Joe to
enroll in the crusade against tu-
berculosis under the emblem of
the double-barred cross."

Schooner Docks

Nine Days Late

J. W. Clise, Scheduled to Make
This Port November 27,
Arrives Wednesday

Sailing majestically up the bay,
the four-masted schooner J. W.
Clise of Jacksonville, arrived Wed-
nesday to take on a cargo of SOu,
)00 feet of pine lumber from the
St. Joe Lumber & Export com-
pany. The .vessel, the first sailing
ship to put in here since 1924, was
scheduled to dock on Monday, No-
vember 27.
The schooner, 190 feet long ana
having a displacement of 845 tons,
is owned by the Putnam Lumber
company. She was built in Seattle,
Wash., in 1909.
A considerable number of inter-
ested spectators were on hand to
see the schooner dock Wednesday.
She will be in port until some
time next week and undoubtedly
will be viewed by a large number
of local people, as tlis type o0
vessel is quite a curiosity in these
days of steam. ;

Seedling Pines

Are Available

AAA Reimbursement and Reduced
Cost of Stock Promises Big
Increase In Plantings

Gulf county landowners desiring
pine trees for reforestation put-
?oses should make their applica-
tions immediately, warns District
Forester James N. Wilson of Pan-
ama City.
Reimbursement to farmers for
tree planting possible under the
AAA, combined with the 'reduced
cost of planting stock announced
by the Florida Forest and Park
Service, promises to make this .a
banner year for reforestation and
will probably result in a shortage
of planting stock.
Wilson states that the reforesta-
tion of cut-over and abandoned
farm lands has already provided
itself a profitable investment.
Trees planted only six to ten years
ago on waste landis are showing
liameters of 6 inches and heights
of 30 feet. Once planted, the only
additional care needed is fire pro-
tection.
Among the plantings in Gulf
county are those of Charles Mor-
gan planted in 1931 one mile nortt
of Wewahitchka, and that of W.
G. Hardy at Overstreet. The Hardy
planting was begun with four
acres in 1933 and has been in-
creased regularly until it totals to-
lay more than 150 acres. The S.
Joe Land & Development company
has three experimental plantings,
one opposite the White City look-
out tower and two approximately a
three miles north of the tower. r
Trees may be secured now from
the nursery at Olustee, Baker C
county, at $1.75 per thousand, oi-
$2.35 shipped anywhere in the
state prepaid. Orders may be
laced by writing Forester Wilson
at Panama City, or to the Talla-
hassee office of the forest service.

STUDENT COUNCIL HOLDS JUNIOR CLASS TO STAGE
SESSION IN BAND ROOM "WHO'S WHO" CONTEST


The student council held its
regular session Tuesday in the
band room and from now on all
meetings of the council will be
held there.
One thing in particular was dis-
cussed, to get the six home rooms
of the high school to make up
boxes of food, clothing, etc., to be
given to the needy at Christmas.
Due to the fact that we will be
out of school at Christmas time,
it was decided to turn these boxes
over to one of the civic clubs and
let them give them :out with other
baskets. After talking with Prin-
cipal McPherson, he suggested
that perhaps we should give them
right here In school at the time
the home rooms have their trees.
It hasn't been worked out yet, but
the idea will be carried out, and
it is desired that the whole school
co-operate 100 per cent. It is the
hope that everyone can and will
bring something to give those pu-
pils who will be taken from the
lower grades.
The condition of the school
campus was also discussed and it
was decided to ask if it would be
possible to remove the gate that
is on the front corner of the yard.
We are sure that this will help
the looks of the school ground.
After talking over a few more
smaller items, the meeting was
adjourned to meet two weeks
hence.

SENIORS STAGE DANCE
The seniors put on a dance last
Wednesday week in the Centennial
building, and quite a number were
present for an enjoyable time. This
was the first dance given by the
seniors, but more are to follow.


The juniors are putting on a
"Who's Who" contest to discover
who is the most popular, funny,
conceited, etc., pupil-boy and
girl-in Port St. Joe High.
They have prepared ballots with
these titles on them with a blank
space for the name to be written
in opposite. The ballots will be
sold for five cents. The votes will
be counted before chapel so the
winners can be announced in as-
sembly. They anticipate having
the winners up on the stage so
the student body can get a good
look at them.
It is hoped the entire high school
body will take an interest in the
contest and buy ballots, as the
money will go toward the junior-
senior banquet to be held in the
spring.

SENIORS GET BUCKLES
Six senior boys who ordered
belt buckles at the time the rings
were ordered, this week received
their buckles which are gold with
a purple "S," the school colors.
The boys are proud of their em-
blems and are showing them off
to everyone in school.
The seniors are looking for
their rings before the Christmas
holidays and expect to receive
them some time next week.

FOOTBALL SEASON OVER
The football season ended last
week for the St. Joe Sharks when
they played the Wewahitchka De-
mons. The Sharks played an ex-
cellent game, as usual. The score
was 18-8 in favor of St. Joe when
the Demons forfeited the game,
making the final score 1-0 in favor
of St. Joe.


'Hollywood -Cavalcade' Depicts

Screen's Greatest Story---It's Own


The romance of Hollywood, from
bathing beauties to world pre-
mieres, has been staged anew and
the highly entertaining result is
"Hollywood Cavalcade," starring
Alice Faye and Done Ameche.
Great stars of today and great
personalities of yesterday tell this
human drama of today. Those
memorable Mack Sennett bathing
beauties, the Keystone Cops, Bus-
ter Keaton, Ben Turpin, custard-
pie comedy, Al Jolson-they're all
in this picture playing Sunday ana


made for the film when Al Jolson
sang again "Kol Nidre" with
which he electrified the world in
the first talkie, "The Jazz Singer."
The triumph of the beloved dog
star, Rin Tin Tin, is also commem-
orated, the canine star being im-
personated by his own great-
grandson.

tion, "Smashing the Money Ring,"

present hilarious scenes in which
they disport feverishly about in
the interests of law and disorder.
Don Ameche, who plays the di-

story of hazardous adventure, pre-

methods of the department which
wages an unceasing war against

Air Show On Wednesday
Timely as tomorrow's headlines,
"20,000 Men a Year," playing at
the Port theater Wednesday only,
features Randolph Scott, Preston
Foster and Margaret Lindsay. Tbh
story was inspired by the Civil
Aeronautics Authority program for
training civilian fliers in the na-
tion's colleges.
Randolph Scott is the instruc-
tor at a small college. Foster plays
a CAA official with hard head,
fast fists and a soft heart. He's a
tough buzzard with eagle's feath-
ers. Margaret Lindsay has no use
for fliers-until she falls in love
with one!
The picture is filled with plenty
of thrills, drama and comedy.

PROGRESS

Saint Joseph, site of the Constitutional Convention which drew up Florida's
first organic law in 1838, has gone with time, but in its place we have a
virile, hustling seaport and industrial center making a nation-wide bid for
recognition, a healthy youngster that is going places among Florida cities.
During the 101 years that have passed since that momentous event took
place at old Saint Joseph, Florida has progressed at an amazing speed and
kept pace with national progress until today it ranks as outstanding for its
tourist attractions, agricultural and industrial development.
As we complete the first step forward into the second century since forma-
tion of this great commonwealth, we feel that the time is appropriate and
the occasion fitting to commemorate in revived memory the deeds of those
in our state who 101 years ago and less fought for and achieved things
which make the march of progress a little more definite. a little
less wearisome.


We Point With Pride-
to the fact that this city was the site
of the Constitutional Convention which drew up
the document creating the State of Florida.

We Look to the Future-
Like the ancient city of Saint Joseph, which
was the outstanding city of Florida 101 years
ago, we feel that Port St. Joe will far sur-
pass the fame and glory achieved by the old
town and will develop into one of Florida's
leading industrial centers.

One hundred one years ago Florida was a veri-

means of rapid travel or communication. Today
it is one of the most modern and up-and-coming
states of the Union. Tomorrow should see it
unequalled for its tourist attractions, industrial
