As a community, we hope that Christmas,,
1939, will find Port St. Joe and Gulf county
filled with the Christmas spirit, exemplified
in the words and deeds of its citizens and
that, for the day, we shall set aside all other
worldly considerations in order to take part
in the glad celebration.

A ROSTER PASSES ON
i- ,C A. Lel-ardy has passed ofi. His passing
is not only a blow to his family, but to the
city as well. He took an active interest in
boosting and building for the betterment of
Port St. Joe, and his death leaves a gap in
the ranks of those working for a bigger and
better city.
His cheery greetings will be missed by
those who gathered at his corner pharmacy,
as will his initiative at public gatherings. His
was the moving spirit that got the Port St.
Joe Merchants' association underway, and as
president of the organization, urged it on to
projects of benefit to our city.
The Star joins in extending condolences to
Mr. LeHardy's widow and other members of
the family in their loss.

A report issued by the Illinois Emergency
Relief association shows that only 296 of the
466 cases on relief in a small community in
the state are actually eligible. The 170 cases
presumably are merely keeping up with the
Joneses.-Macon Telegraph.

Poland has been absorbed numerous times

render the state no greater service than to
unite, for once, on some man of outstanding
ability, unquestioned honesty and absolutely
fearless, who is geographically locate to best
understand all the problems of the common-
wealth's citizenry. He should be broad enough
in his views to represent ALL Florida-east,
west, north and south. The interests of these
sections are varied and in many instances not
comparable. They range from cotton, tobacco,,
,peanuts and general farming to citrus, phos-
phate, trucking, sponging, tourists and recre-
ation of a nature which attracts those finan-
cially able to pay for their fun.
If the next man who fills the governor's
chair can be elected without mortgaging his
character and political future to make the
expensive race, and he is of the above type,
willing to serve all arts of the state, Florida
will see a growth never before witnessed.-
Mulberry Press.

Autoists are supposed to have their license
tags by January 1, but we hardly think there
is any necessity of breaking one's neck to se-
cure them, as probably, like every year in the
past, the deadline will be extend two or three
times. In fact, we'd be almost willing to
gamble that February 15 will be the final date
for securing the black and white tags.

any more.-Clermont Press.

SWomeni's hats may look funny, but then
the lodge bonnet a man wears comes in the
same class.

At this season of the year most girls would
rather be mistletoed than pigeon-toed.

It won't be long now until we'll be writing
it "1940"-unless we forget.

Men brag about their achievements and
women brag about their ailments.

On How to Carve
Christmas Turkey

G ... --. .n *-- y i
G'irner round ye maers of the
Christmas dinner table. Uncle Sam
will teach you a lesson:
The government has issued an of-
ficial bulletin on the proper, tech-
nique for carving the Christmas tur-
key.
The bulletin rules on such impor-
tant problems as whether the fa-
ther should stand or sit while do-
ing the.honors and the position of the
turkey'on the platter. All you have
to do is read this, and carving the
festive bird will be a lead-pipe cinch.
"The turkey rides on the platter
back down," says the bureau of
home economics. "The first prob-

lem is father's: Should he stand or.
sit while carving?"
There are two schools of thought
on this subject, and the government
grants father his constitutional
Rights to do as he pleases. But it
is suggested, after deliberation, that
a short person had best stand and a
tall person should sit for the most
effective work. Are you short or
tall?
The next problem, says the bulle-
tin, is the point of attack. It is
here that many a head of a house,
the bureau believes, has lost the
Christmas spirit through ignorance
or awkwardness-or just plain stub-
bornness.
Only a few simple rules need be
followed. The most important, of
course, is to keep the bird on the
platter, because it's rather difficult
to work on the floor. Also, the bu-

reau estimates, a bird on the plat-
ter is worth two on the tablecloth.
"First," the bureau said, "remove
the leg from the body by grasping
it in your left hand (but what if
you're left handed?) and cutting
straight down to the hip joint. Re-
move the wings and the other leg.
"Then place the fork squarely

Garner read the 44-word formal
statement to a small group of

The statement said: 'I will ac-

RESOLUTION OF RESPECT
Whereas, it 'has pleased God, in
His infinite mercy and wisdom to
call from us our dearly beloved
brother and fellow member, C. A.
LeHardy, the Port St. Joe Cham-
ber of Commerce desires to ex-
press the feeling of great loss that
has come to this organization, and
to extend its sincere sympathy to
the sorrowing family.
Mr. LeHardy was one of the or-
ganizers of the .chamber, and from
its very inception has been a
loyal and efficient member. His
wise counsel was often sought on
important questions and he gave
his advice sincerely andi fearlessly.
He was always In the forefront of
any movement that tended for the
good of his chosen city. Being one
of the oldest business men of.tne
city, even though young in years,
he had seen it grow to its present
pretensions, and was confident of
the future. He was genial and
kindly and a friend to all who
knew him, and his passing leaves
a vacant space In the hearts fall.
It is ordered by the board oed-
rectors that this expression be
published in the local newspaper
and a copy be spread upon the
minutes of the chamber.
T. E. Fisher, President.
T. W. Wilson, Secretary.

Will Toy Satisfy His Majesty?

She Asks Him-and Finds Out


A PRETTY toy-but doesit
have educational value-?
Don't ask the nearest child
expert, but hand it to a
youngster, who'll probably
think, up more instructive'
ways to use it than its in-
ventor ever imagined. And
that's the theory on which the Test-
ed Toy laboratory of New York has
helped manufacturers select the
toys you buy for the children this
Christmas.
The "laboratory" is really Miss
Lillian Rifkin, who takes a toy to
a school, recreational center or park
and records children's reactions to
it while they play. Then she fills in
an elaborate questionnaire, com-
menting on the toy's durability, fit-
ness at various age levels and value
in stimulating mental, artistic, phys-
ical or scientific activity. \
She doesn't question parents very.
often except regarding the toy's de-
sirability for indoor or outdoor play.
But the child is the final authority.
Little rubber automobiles, says
Miss Rifkin, are second in populari-
ty to blocks. She's astounded by the
elaborate kinds of dramatic play


DRESSMAKING-This dress
designing "game" is being tried
out by two youngsters at the ele-
mentary demonstration school
Miss Rifkin runs under sponsor--
-ship of New York university and
the Child Study association of
America.


PROVING GROUND-Miss Rifkin watches a boy putting a
new toy to its practical testing paces. Among her conclusions: (1)
Children may be unpredictable in their likes and dislikes, but
they're notably consistent in their reactions; (2) play appeal of a
toy is paramount; any education value it may have is secondary
in the child's mind.


that children build around the cars:
"Sometimes a child travels all
around the world with them. Often
he will recreate a trip he's taken
in the family car. Sometimes he'll
play detective and chase gangsters
.and sometimes he's a taxicab
driver."
Miss Rifkin finds that toy automo-
biles, like toy soldiers, help a child
get the surplus energy out of his
system. And both appeal to his in-
stinct for collecting.


One mother, she says, believed
militant tendencies would be fos-
tered if her child were allowed to
play with toy soldiers. So she for-
bade them, but instead the child col-
lected bottle tops, lined them up in
military formation and shot them
down by cocking his finger.
Miss Rifkin says it's all "pretend"
anyway. "Even a child old enough
to know war means cruelty realizes
his soldiers are just toys, and it's
only a game."
