Favors Reforestation Program; Aid
For the Aged and Will Fight
Against Sales Tax
Reforestation that will insure
for Northwest Florida the prosper-
ity that has been brought by the
paper manufacturing industry by
providing a ready supply of raw
materials, was advocated by Spes-
sard L. Holland, candidate for gov-
ernor, who spoke in the Masonic
hall last Friday afternoon.
Holland was introduced by G.
Pierce Wood, speaker of the 1939
house and himself a candidate for
congress from this district, who
said that he had played football
with the gubernatorial candidate,
served with him in the legislature
and been a "buddy" of his in the
World War, in which he said.Hol-
land had won the highest honor
for heroism -the Distinguished
Also of particular interest to
.the people of Port St: Joe was the
declaration of Holland that he
would make the early completion
of the Gulf coast highway a pre-
ferred objective of his administra-
Holland stated that he is maik-
ing his race for governor on his
record as a state senator for eight
years on the grounds that the best
guage of what a man will do in
the future is the record of what
le -has,'done int.the past. ,He cieed
his constant fight against a sales
tax and of the gross receipts tax.
He stated that the tax problem
could easily be solved by the adop-
tion here of the strict collection,
laws whicli"have been successfully
applied in other southern state.
He proved his loyalty to old folks
of the state by his successful ef-
forts to, pass a bill through the
last senate which would have
given them $100 additional per
year through a tax on horse race
tracks. He said that he will in.
clude in his first message to the
legislature a request for immedi-
ate action on this bill.
Holland stated that he will be
free to appoint the most capable
men to office under his adminis-
tration because of the fact that
they will not be asked, to become
dispensers of political patronage.
"They will be free," he said, "to
do the best job within their abil-
ity without political interference."

First Annual Eclipse Since 1865;
Next Show Is Scheduled

Residents of this neck o' the

the sun in an annual or ring
eclipse (provided, of course, that
proper visibility can be arranged
for with the weather man).
The moon's disc will cover ap-
proximately 86 per cent of the
sun, producing a pronounced twi-
light effect. in which the atmos-

Would House City Offices,
Fire Station and Jail;
May Be Two-Story
The boakd of city commission-
ers for some time has been con-
templating 'securing a WPA proj-
ect for erection of a new city hall,
and Tuesday night at the regular
meeting of the board the plan. was
definitely placed underway.
If and when the project is sanc-
tioned a new site, more centrally
located, will be chosen for the
structure, preferably on Monument
avenue, and: the present site at the
corner of First street and Monu-
ment avenue will be turned back
to the original owners who gave
it to the city for use as long as it
was used for civic purposes.
Mayor J. L. Sharit believes .that
the project can be pushed through
and states that it should not re-
quire more than $1000 as the spon-
sor's share. He also is of the opin-
ion that the lime residue collect.
ing at the St. Joe Paper company
can be used for: building purposes
and samples of the material have
been sent to thecbemic'al Jedprt-'::
ment of the state road department
at Gainesville for tests. It is the
belief that the lime can be com-
bined with cement to form a suit-
able building material. It is
pointed out that the beautiful pub-
lic school building at Apalachicola
was built of pre-cast blocks com-
posed of lime and cement, and it
is one of the most outstanding
school buildings in West Florida.
If the lime residue can be de-
veloped into a building substance
it will give an unlimited supply
for use on our proposed new hos-
pital and other civic structures.
Present plans for the new city
domicile call for city offices, fire
station and jail, and if worked up
as a two-story building will have
offices for rent to bring in some
revenue to the city.

The spoken word is given scant attention;
the printed word is thoughtfully weighed.
The spoken word barely asserts; the printed
word thoroughly convinces. The spoken word
is lost; the printed word remains.
There's a story that comes out of the west.
It's about the pelicans of Santa Monica Bay,
California, and those pelicans remind us ot
a lot of us human beings. The experience
teaches us that more and better sales effort
is required of every last one of us.
For years these pelicans had been fed by
fishermen from their surplus catch, until they
got in the habit of eating without work.
However, this year high seas and changing
currents off Santa Monica cut down the catch
and fishermen no longer had any fish to
spare. They noticed that the pelicans lan-
guished and grew thin, and it dawned on them
that they had forgotten how to fish for them-
selves.. So they went down the coast and
found some unpampered pelicans who had
never been ruined by easy living and free fish.
They turned them loose among the starving
birds, who sat about on the beach and com-.
pljiped of hard times.
The way those imported pelicans went out
after their own fish was an eyeopener. Pretty
soon the hungry natives quit watching and
tried; it themselves. They discovered there are
plenty of fish in the sea for the bird with
energy and enterprise. And they've quit talk-
ing about the hard times.
The same thing applies to business. If a
business man sits in his store and complains
because he sells no goods, he'll slowly starve
to death. But if he advertises in his local
newspaper in a logical manner he will draw
customers to his store and he won't have time
to sit about and talk about hard times.
Fire menaces the preservation of society's
most cherished things-property, jobs and
family. When you hold a match in your fin-
gers and the clear flame points toward the
ceiling in silent beauty, it is hard to believe
that with a little help from its allies around
the room--cigarets, waste paper, curtains-it
could consume the house in which you are
sitting. Respect fire for the utility it has to
offer, and respect fire also for the power it
has to destroy.

WANTED, A CANDIDATE!
Yes, we have plenty of candidates for gov-
ernor in the coming primaries, but it seems
that we need one more. In looking over the
platforms of the candidates and in weighing
their public statements, we fail to find one
who comes out flatfootedly and emphatically
for putting teeth in our tax assessment and
tax collection laws. No one has proposed a
plan that gives reasonable assurance that real
estate will be freed from taxation In the fu-
If real estate must continue to bear heavy
taxation, and if big land holders, and some
little ones, are to be freed from the payment
of their taxes by recurrent "Murphy Acts,"
or by similar legislation, many small land-
owners must continue to hold the bag and pay
confiscatory taxes. Many of our best informed
people have for years been contending that
this tax reform is one of our most urgent
needs. It is rather disconcerting to find that
it is so nearly forgotten in this campaign.
This is partly explained by the character
of the candidates so far offering themselves.
There is not a single one who does not be-
long to the realtor, lawyer, retired business
man, or the professional politician class.
Where is the candidate who logically repre-
sents the small farmer and land owner, or
places his interests high in the scale of his
It is yet early in the game, and some of
those already in the race may see the light,
or someone may enter the contest who is a
natural champion of this neglected class. If
so, there will be some very positive reactions,
and on voting day there will be some very
pointed balloting.-Bonifay Advertiser.
We plumbed the depths of human misery
the other day. Here, in Stuart, believe it or
not, we met a woman who had not painted
her fingernails a dripping red, whose hair
was not all frizzed up like a Congo belle's,
whose face was not a pasty gin-white, who
did not have dark circles under her eyes, and
who wore a modest dress on the street in-
stead of a snappy beach outfit.
We found that this poor, ignorant little
country girl believed in God, had no ambition
other than to marry a good man, raise a
healthy family, and grow old gracefully. Podr
soul, she will probably reach a ripe old age
without knowing what a thrill it is to crash
into a ditch going 80. The wretch seemed
Success has its great rewards. And it also
has its headaches. Nothing was ever accom-
plished that didn't attact criticism from mal-,
contents. The failure likes nothing better than
to denounce the successful man.

mary, but you'll have to go to Wewahitchka
to do it.
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.
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?

A cold cough seriously endangers
you, your family, and your business
associates. Illness from colds and
coughs causes more loss of time
than all other diseases combined.
If you have a cough due to a cold,
get Mentho-Mulsion, the guaran-
teed medicine, today. If Mentho-
Mulsion fails to stop your coughing
immediately and get you entirely
over your cold cough quicker than
any medicine you ever tried, ask
far your money back.
Mentho-Mulsion is more than an
ordinary medicine. It contains vita-
mins A and D to build your cold
resistance, and seven soothing,
healing oils and unguents, includ-
