HOUSEKEEPER

KILLS T.DYBDOL

AT HOME HERE

Young Woman, Claims She
Fired Fatal Shot In
Self-Defense

Tom Dybdol, 40, is dead and
Victoria Anderson, 20, is being
held in the county jail at Wewa-
hitchka on a murder charge as
the result of a shooting at the
home of Dybdol at Highland View
about 9 o'clock last Friday night.
The young woman, who lived
with Dybdol as his housekeepe,.
surrendered to Deputy Sheriff
Homer Coe Immediately after she
shot Dybdol with a .22 calibre re-
volver, averring that she shot in
self-defense.
According to her story she was
in her room when Dybdol entered
with a hammer in his hip pocket
and reaching toward it said: "I'm
going to kill you," and started to-
ward her, when she shot him one
time, the bullet entering his body
near the heart.
After the shooting she went to
the Bayshore Grocery and had
Fritz Christiansen, the proprietor,
drive her into town, where she
surrendered to Deputy Coe. Sheriff
Byrd Parker was in the city at
the time and took her to the jail
at Wewahitchka.
Coe said there were no wit-
nesses to the shooting '"~nd that
both the young woman and Dyb-
dol apparently had lbeen drinking.
The dead man was working as a
stevedore at the local docks, hav-
ing come to this city two years
ago from Panama City.

Legion Posi Will

Observe Birthday

With Tri-County Celebration to Be
Held Here on March 15 When
Organization Comes of Age

Plans were made at the meeting
of Gulf County Post 116, American
Legion, held in Wewahitchka Mon-
day night for' observance of the
twenty-first birthday of the Ameri-
can Legion on March 15.
The local post will invite posts
from Bay and Liberty counties to
participate in a celebration to be
held in the Centennial auditorium
at that time. The newly-elected
officers will also be installed dur-
ing the affair.
Arthur Lupton and D. B. Lewis
reported on their trip to the South-
eastern Child Welfare :Conference
held in Jacksonville and reports
were also heard from other com-
mittees.
Speakers of the evening were G.
Pierce Wood, candidate for con-
gress, and ,S. L. Barke, cashier of
,the Florida Bank.

Cone Asks Floridians
To Aid Census Takers

'Governor Cone has called upon
Floridians "in the public interest"
to answer fully the questions of
the federal census takers who soon
will be knocking at your door.
"The number of members which
Florida is apportioned in the house
of representatives at Washington
may be affected by this census,"'
said the governor, adding that the
count "is in a position to furnish
accurate measurements of the eco-
nomic and social changes resulting
from the stresses and strains of
the decade now closing."


VISITOR IN CITY


Ed R. Bentley of Lakeland, can-
didate for attorney general of
Florida, who was a visitor in
Port St. Joe Tuesday in the in-
terest of his campaign.


City Now Has


WHY?

The board of county commissioners of Gulf county at
their regular meeting on February 6 received bids from The
Star and from the Gulf County Breeze for publication of min-
utes of the board, which publication carries with it the desig-
nation of "official organ of Gulf county" with the consequent
publication of the greater portion of legal advertising within
the county. Bid of The Star for publication of the minutes
was for $20 per month which, in the opinion of the editor; is
what such publication is worth when the news value of the
minutes is taken into consideration. Bid of the Breeze was
for $35 per month. The bid of the Breeze was accepted by
the board of county commissioners.
WHY?
The bid of The Star would have saved the taxpayers of
Gulf county $180 per year. Of course, that is a small amount,
but if other business of the county is carried on in the same
manner, with contracts awarded to the select few regardless
of whether their bid is the lowest, then apparently the matter
of competitive bids is merely a farce. ,
The Star is a legal publication. The Star submitted the
lowest bid for the work. Then WHY WASN'T THE STAR


GIVEN THE CONTRACT?
We suggest that you ask


River Service R. R. Brotherhood


Chattahoochee and Gulf Naviga-
tion Co. Will Have Weekly
Boat From Columbus

Making port here for the second
time, the "George W. Miller,"
river steamer of the Chattahoochee
and Gulf Navigation company ,of
C6lipmbus, Ga., Saturday opened up
river service via the Apalachicola
and Chattahoochee rivers, to Co-
lumbus and other northern points.
It is understood the stern-wheel
steamer will make one trip a
week, utilizing the services of the
Port St. Joe Terminal company
here to connect with coastwise
and foreign shipping lanes, and
will offer low rates from this city
to interior points.

Papermakers

Endorse Wood

Feel G. P. Is Fully Qualified for
Office of Congressman From
Third Florida District

Local Union No. 379, Interna-
tional Brotherhood of Paper-
makers, at their last meeting en-
dorsed G. Pierce Wood for con-
gressman from the Third district.
Theendorsement read: "The lo-
cal union is satisfied that Mr.
Wood's qualifications for this of-
fice are far superior to any of his
opponents and plan to 'support him
to the fullest extent."



SERVICE AS IS
SERVICE

"Doc" Carver of the Carver
Drug company, dashed into
The Star office at 11:45 Wed-
ngsday morning with an or-
der for a thousand meal tick-
ets for his lunch counter,
stating that he was practic-
ally out and needed 'em.
At 1:15 p. m. (with time
out for lunch) the completed
job was delivered to Doc.
If you want service as is
service, have The Star do
your commercial printing in-
stead of sending it out of
town.


Continues To Fight

Against Pipe Line

Get Two More Resolutions Against
Project Extending from This
City to Tennessee

* Present1ting pared" reid1tirft5s
opposing construction and 'era-
tion of the proposed gasoline pipe
line from Port St. Joe to points
in Georgia and Tennessee, two
representatives of the Brotherhqbd
of Railway Trainmen are contact-.
ing city and county commissioners
along the east coast and upging
them to endorse the resolutiOdn on
the ground that construction of
the line would "cause seri cs un-
employment in the transportation
and other industries, decree pur-
chasing power and contribute to
a situation which would cause
abatement of present facilities and
services."
Apparently they are finding a
number of gullible boards, as the
St. Lucie board of county commis-
sioners, the Volusia county com-
mission and the Deland city com-
mission all signed the ready-made-
resolutions.
The two representatives are
working on sectional jealousy,
pointing out that should the Port
St. Joe line be completed it would
encroach upon Central Florida and
the east coast. They declare that
railroad oil transportation facili-
ties are already adequate for Floi-
ida's needs, but they fail to take
into consideration or mention that
Florida is a rapidly growing state
and that the pipelines are neces-
sary to supplement rail transporta-
tion of petroleum products. Also
the fact that practically all of
Florida will continue to be served
with petroleum products by the
railroads.
In spite of the stink being stirred
up over the matter, the Southeast-
ern Pipeline company continues
with its construction, knowing
from past experiences of similar
companies that the higher courts
will overrule any adverse decisions
of the lower courts.

THANKS
The editor wishes to thank those who cast
their votes for him, even though it was a lost
cause, and we appreciate it very much. We
felt that we never were cut out to be a poli-
tician, but made the race for commissioner
at the insistence of a group of local men who
thought we would make a good man for the
job. Due to a rush of work and the fact that
we never could stand up on our hind legs and
dish out a lot of blah about what a fine fel-
low we were and what we would do for the
people if elected, we done very little 'cam-
paigning which showed up in the returns.
However, had we been elected, we feel that
we probably couldn't do any better than the
winner, and so we extend congratulations and
pursue the even tenor of our way, feeling
none the worse for our defeat. Had we been
elected we probably would have had the look
of the man who wished for an elephant-
and got it.

Call up Diogenes, there is honesty in the
world after all! Two WPA workers, suffer-
ing from &enscience trouble, sent anonymous
checks for/'$72.54 to the treasury. One said
that he wasn't."on the job" and his conscience
simply refused to be trifled with. The other
confessed that the money was accepted for
services not "fully and completely" rendered.

A workman tried to put out a small fire
with a bucket of gasoline, and a $6000 fire
resulted. What we'd like to know is how that
gasoline always happens to be handy ?-Bos-
ton Transcript. There are never any buckets
of gasoline handy unless heavy insurance is
carried.

A well-upholstered pocketbook is the life-
goal of many men who don't know what to
do with it when achievement crowns their
efforts. Florida Times-Union. But their
heirs sure know what to do with it!

WE STILL QUERY "WHY?"
The Gulf County Breeze, recently desig-
nated the official county organ over a lower
bid by The Star, accuses the editor of going
off "half-cocked" in regard to the matter, ex-
plaining that had The Star been designated
the official organ that it would cost the
county more than it would save, due to the
fact that every time a county official had a
legal advertisement to publish he would have
to make a trip to Port St. Joe at a cost of at
least $1.50 per trip.
Naturally, the editor of the Breeze has a
perfect right to chortle over securing the bid
-we probably would do the same-but right
there is where he goes off "half-cocked," to
use his own expression. There would be no
necessity for anyone to make a trip to Port
St. Joe to deliver matter for publication, as
the mails are carried daily and all legal mat-
ter published in The Star is read and re-read
by copy to avoid errors, and above all such
advertising would be printed so that it could
be READ, and not in the manner it is now
being printed.
A number of other counties of the state
rotate the county advertising among the vari-
ous papers in the county, which is only just
and fair, and as far as we know there is no
extra cost added and everyone is happy and
contented, for those officials who seek re-
election know that none of the papers will be
opposed to them on the ground that the ad-
vertising was awarded to a competitor.
And so we still query "Why?"

The editor's wife has a pair of canaries and.
when the female lays an egg it is removed
and a marble put in its place. Right now the
little lady is sitting on four- "glassids" just
as contentedly as though they were eggs. It's
a dirty trick, in our. opinion, but we under-
stand that it is for the best and that when
she's through laying that the real eggs will
be put back in the nest. Sometimes ignorance
is bliss.

This man Ed R. Bentley, who is running
for attorney general and who was a visitor in
our office Tuesday, struck us as a very like-
able chap, and our opinion was corroborated
when we found that he smoked the same kind
of pipe tobacco that we do.

The HOLC has just reported a loss of $5,-
178,000 on properties it foreclosed in the
Omaha, Neb., area alone. The loss, of course,
is made up through general taxes-and gen-
eral taxes come from the taxpayers.

Road building continues apace as motor
manufacturers turn. out cars capable of hit-
ting a faster pace.-Florida Times-Union.
And the death list grows apace.


MAKING CASH CROP OF
PINES IS INCREASING
SOUTH'S FARM PROFITS

Cash-cropping southern pines for
sustained profits has been increas-
ing st'eqdily in many areas of the
South, according to a new publica-
tion, "Southern Pines Pay," just
issued by the Forest Service, TJ.
S. Department of Agriculture.
Timber growing or forest farm-
ing ranks as a major industry in
the South, and. there is a growing
realization that the largest profits
result when timber is raised as a
crop. Trees require no fertilization
and no cultivation, but they need
protection from -fire andi from
careless cutting, it is pointed out.
The publication includes photo-
graphs showing progressive stages
of growth of -pinelands protected
from fire, planted or self-seeded,
and where growth has accumulated
at rates of one to three dollars an
acre or more annually.
Suggestions made for cash-crop-
ping southern pines include cut-
ting the crowded and poorer trees
first and leaving the straighter
and better trees for high-quality
products such as poles, piling, saw
logs and veneer bolts. It is ex-
plained that many owners are sac-
rificing hundreds of thousands of
dollars yearly by cutting their tim-
ber when too young, .cutting only
the most promising trees, or cut-
ting the stands too clean.
Copies of the booklet may be se-
cured from, the T. S. Department
of Agriculture, Washington, D. C.

ENJOYABLE CHAPEL PROGRAM
IS GIVEN BY SEVENTH GRADE
The band furnished music for
chapel last Friday as the students
marched into the auditorium. Then
the seventh grade took charge of
the program.
The Biulle was read by Sally
Trawick and the congregation re-
peated the Lord's Prayer. Gwen-
dolyn Howell sang "God Bless
America," which was followed by
two talks, "Lincoln's Boyhood,"by
George V imberly and "St. Valen-
tine's Day," by Otha Powell. We
were then regaled with two musi-
cal numbers by Evelyn Strange,
accompanying herself on the gui-
tar. The concluding number was
a talk on "Citizenship" by Helen
Harlow.
The band played two selections

PROGRESS OF THE ANNUAL
The high school annual is pro-
gressing in good shape. Due to the
cloudy, cold weather we haven't
been able to get the snapshots we
need.
The price for this annual has
been placed very low, and if de-
sired, students may purchase an-
nuals on the installment plan.
It is a book that we feel sure
each student would like to own.
You can look through and recall
to your memory the various school
socials and activities that you par-
ticipated in.
We hope the majority of the
students will support us and con-
tinue to publish an annual in the
years to come.

Well, ten years is a long time in the life of any

automobile. Yet... over one million X929 Model

Fords are still in operation. This is more than

twicethe number of anyotherlow-priced car of the

same Model year. It is almost as many as all other


makes combined-regardless of price!

Here again is evidence of Ford quality


cost. You probably don't expect to drive yournew

Ford for the next ten years, but it is good to know

that the endurance of the very best materials is

there.This,too,is one reason why Fords command

such a high resale value. Today more than ever

before Ford is the Quality Car in the low-price


field. Only Ford methods could build

a car so fine to sell at such a low price.
