Opinion Clears Up

Matter of Election

Of Commissioners

Does Not Have to Live In Precinc;
But Can Maintain Residence
if a Forimer Resident

There has been consud-iraibl
discussion recently as to whether
or not an elector residing in on.
precinct can' run for office lu an-
other precinct,' -the discussion per-
taining to the matter of election of
a 'county commissioner froni Dis.
trict 2; Wetappo.
The Star has secured an -.piniloi
on the matter through a conipe
tent:attorney; backed up by S.cr'-
tary of State R. A Gray and At-
torney General George C Gibbs.
as follows:
*!' :'Se66. 1, Article 6 of theb onstiru!-
tion of Florida, presc UIbes that an',
person whoi has lived in the state
.of Florida for one -ear and in their
countyty for: six nmon:ns shall .
: deemedd as a qualifi.i elector. ahnd
Sec. 248, C, :G..i,. Laws of Florida
prescribes that any person 'regis-
tered according to law shall be
'' deemed' a- qualified elector and
--thereby -qualified to hold office.
Further, uder: the laws of Flor-
ida, an elector can maintain his le-
ga!: residence not only in any par-
ticular: county 'commissioner's dis-
trict, and thereby hold office as
commissioner In sub-district, but
'he can maintain his legal residence
in' any precinct .in any- county in
which he formerly resided whether.
he owns properly there or not and
S whether he actually lives In said
precinct or not, and thereby be'
q qualified under the laws of Florida
to hold office in 'said precinct, dia-,
trict or county.
This opinion is supported by the
organic la, of 'Florida, and was
discussed at' length in Smith and
Armstead vs. Croom et al, which
opinion has been the goveirnjng de-
sialon in Florida since ,1856
In rendering this opinion, a con-
crete example Is'given i- G.IPierce
SWood, fo rmerly eliployed -in this
city, whose" fIT'fly Tresided' 'in
'Qd' .Qu y but Mr. "VWoOd' retaining

mer resident,'aid being elected' as

robi"fthat county. -

Creepy Midnight Show
Coming to Port Theater

The Port theater, is scheduling a
special midnight show: for Satur-
day, March 30, that should cause
the hair of the audience to stand
on end, if not to fall out.'
The picture, "The Human Mon-
ster," a thrilling horror melo-
drama, presents corpses floating
down the river and sinking in the
mud; small armies of blind men;
a doctor who drowns his' patients
for the insurance money and a
monster who might be a close
friend of Frankenstein's.
Bela Lugosi plays the part' of
a Jekyll and Hyde who runs a
home for the blind under one
name 'and makeup, and tan insur-
ance racket aided by murder and
forgery under another. He is aided
by Jake, an imbecile monster, who
drowns his victims in a conveni-
ent tank.
The macabre element is com-
petently sustained and should send
thrills creeping down the'spines
of 'the unsophisticated.

CULBRETH VISITOR IN CITY
A. Z; Culbreth of Wewahitchka,
candidate for election as super-

Connell Asks Re-election
To Board On Past Record

W. Roy Connell,-present member
of the board of county commis-
sioners, is announcing for re-elec-
tion from District 1, Wewahitchka.
Mr. Conhell, who has been a
resident of the county all his life,
was first elected as a commissioner
in 1926 and served eight years. He
was re-elected in 1938 and is now
rounding out 10 years on the board.
He served as chairman of the
board for six years, was mayor of
Wewahitchka for a year and has
served two years on the ,town
council, all of which, he feels,
gives him an insight as to what,
the people want and need.

standing for honesty and progress
in all things pertaining to the up-
building of Gulf county.

Lister Seeks Re-election
As County Commissioner

Floyd C. Lister of Wewahitchka
is announcing for re-election to the
board of county 'commissioners
from District 2, Wetappo.
Mr. Lister feels that he should
be returned to office, as he has
had a full term in which to become
accustomed to the working of the
board, and feels that putting in a
new man would be detrimental at
this time to' the interests of the
district.
"I am for economy in govern-
ment, progressive measures in gov-
ernment and reduction of taxes,"
states Mr. Lister.

FARM RELIEF AGAIN
Again congressmen are talking about the
agricultural problem. Again farm relief
schemes are being proposed. Again .the law-
makers are preparing to unleash the financial
floodgates of the treasury in an effort to
bring prosperity to the farm.
There is a nostalgic note to all this. For
farm relief has undoubtedly been the most
persistent and long-lived of all political issues,
with the exception of the tariff. Every admin-
istration for decades has had a plan to offer.
Every general election has seen both parties
battling over different farm-aid planks in
their platforms.
Without criticizing the motives underlying
all these efforts, it is certainly apparent that
every one of them has been ineffective. None
has realized the hopes of its proponents. Fur-
'ther, the fact that farm relief plans change
with every shift in political power, like all
political activities, makes for waste, ineffici-
ency and lack of results.

A carefully planned product, at a fair price,
yielding a reasonable profit, results in satis-
fied customers. The policy of cut prices set-
dom brings satisfaction to anyone.-J. T.
Mackey.

If we can take the report of what Herr
Hitler said to Sumner Welles as a fixed dec-
laration of German policy, they certainly do
not seem conducive to peace. Instead, they
seem to make war to the death inevitable.

think she's "some chicken."

SCHOOLS TO CLOSE

closed next Thursday and Friday

meeting of the Florida Educational

to dust. Women make beauty clay

MAN'S SPARE PARTS
Man is like an automobile. Take him apart
and put him together again, with some of
his parts left out, and he will still run. H'e
can get along, if he has to, without a whole
raft of fenders, hoods, spare tires and body
parts, says Prof. G. H. Estabrooks of Col-
gate. Man can get along nicely with one
lung, one kidney, or half of his brain; he can
dispense with two quarts of blood; he can
live without a stomach, an appendix, a spleen
or a gall bladder; even his parathyroid glands
may be removed if their secretion is replaced
by injections; part of his small intestine and
his colon may be excised without serious dam-
age; all his teeth may be removed.
A man who had lost all these spare parts
would be a curiosity, indeed, but he could still
get around. He might, to return to our an-
alogylof the automobile, have to chuff along
at reduced speed, with poor brakes, unsatis-
factory pickup, and many knocks and rattles,
but he would still be able to navigate the
roads under his own power, and that's a lot.
-Exchange.

SUICIDE AND MANSLAUGHTER
Just why many seemingly intelligent'
drivers of automobiles are continually at-
tempting suicide arid manslaughter, is beyond
our understanding. Their actions any place
but in an automobile would in most cases
place, them under mental observation or in
the hoosgow.
These thoughts are brought to mind by the
driver of a truck crashing his vehicle into the
side of a freight train on the Apalachicola
Northern line the other day and derailing a
number of cars.
We read of cases like this all the time in
the newspapers, and there can be no doubt
but that such occurrences are due to care-
lessness on the part of drivers in failing to
take necessary precaution in approaching the
railroad crossing.
The way we see it, there is doggone little
excuse for a driver who drives into the side
of trains.

Sally Rand, 'having gone through bank-
ruptcy herself, is reported as coming to this
state after reading about the coming Florida
boom. Evidently she is looking for a new
bubble.--Sanford Herald.

PEACE BRINGS FINNISH LOSSES-RUSSIAN GAINS


Under the treaty signed in Moscow March 13,'he Soviets will get
a 30-year lease on Hangoe (1) and surrounding- territory as indicated
by the black line; the entire Karelian Isthmus (2), including Viborg
and Sortavala; territory east of Maerkaejaervi (3), including Kuola-
jaervi, and parts of the Sredni and Rybachi Peninsulasl (4), which
are shown in detail on the inset map. In this far northern area the
Soviet is to get free access through Petsamo to the NorwegIan bor-
der. Moreover, to obtain a Russian route to Sweden, a railway is
to be built this year across Finland's "wasp waist" from Kandalak-
sha on tje Leningrad-Murmansk line to Kemijaervi, terminus of the
railroad leading down to the Gulf of Bothnia.

In Interest of His Campaign for
Member of Congress From
The Third District

D. Stuart Gillis of DeFuniak
Springs was a visitor in Port St.
Joe yesterday in the interest of his
campaign for. member of congress

among other things, that "all our
harbors must be substantially ex-
tended and improved in order to
be ready to expedite the handling
of increased volumes of traffic."
"Because I am convinced of the
great value of our commercial
fishing industry I shall undertake
to secure federal assistance on a
parity with agriculture.
"I'am wholeheartedly committed
to the proposition that it is the
sacred duty of this nation to ade-
quately provide for its needy, dis-
abled war-tline defenders and their
widows and orphans."
When asked how he stood in re-
gard to the present situation in
Europe, Mr. Gillis said: "I shall al-
ways stand on the side of peace
and preparedness. Billions for de-
fense, but not a cent for foreign
expeditionary forces."

them where spring is short and
summer hot, is to get them started
early. r
You may choose between,' two
plans: To grow the late flowering
type and start them indoors, or
grow the early flowering strains,
and start them outdoors. The first
plan will give you taller vines and
probably more flowers, but the
latter will give you very fine blos-
soms and probably a longer season
of bloom.

EXPECTS FAVORABLE
ACTION ON CANAL
Washington, March 21 (PNS)-
Congressman Lex Green stated
that he was confident favorable
action would be taken during the
present session of congress on the
Florida cross-state canal project.
Green Is author of the bill for con-
struction of the canal. He said a


1 Starting sweet peas in he house
is easy. Sow them in a flower pot
or flat, an inch deep; and giving
plenty of room for each seedling
to develop. This means at least
two inches each way between the
seeds. The plants should not be
moved to the garden until the dan-
ger of killing frost is past.
Seeds sown outdoors should be
put in as soon as the ground can
be prepared. But the method of
sowing seed at the bottom of a six-
inch trench and filling the trench
as the plants grow has now been
generally abandoned. It stimulates
stem rot. Sow the seeds an inch
deep, and they will send their roots

down as far as needed.
I Since sweet peas are legumes,
it is helpful to innoculate the seed
with one of the dusts or pastes
which are obtainable for this pur-
pose, in order to stimulate its se-
cretion of nitrogen from the soil.
SSweet peas must be provided with
stakes, a fence or a trellis to sup-
port their vines. They may be
grown in the same place each year
if the soil is well fed, with a bal-
anced plant food applied at the
rate of at least four pounds to each
hundred square feet annually. For
the best quality of flowers a rich
soil is essential.
Water must be supplied plenti-
fully until the plants are several
inches tall, and cultivation close
to the row, which might disturb the
roots, should be avoided. 'Pull up
the weeds, and merely scratch the
surface of the soil near the plants.
When the plants begin to bloom,
an excess of water may cause the
buds to fall; if this takes place,
water should be withheld.

The Low Down
from

Willis Swamp


Editor The Star:
I just been reading' about that
there British steamer :Southgate
what was supposedly attacked by
a German submarine off the coats
of Puerto Rico and which maybe
had instructions to send out that
there call for propaganda purposes,
which brings up this here 300-mile
off-shore business. Somebody had
to stay up late to think up that
super-idea. We sure got a surplus
of super-thinkers. And if somebody
should ever come along and care
to begin reducing' expenses, he
wouldn't need to look far.
The Atlantic is a big ocean, and
if it was twict as big, it would be
just twict as good for us. And it
it was three times as big, :so muc
more the better. But these 300-
mile boys, they are narrowin' the
ocean-they are getting' us inch by
inch nearer to Europe-an' trouble.
You go and edge over next door
and snoop around into what the
commotion, there is about, and
which is none of your business-
and you will also maylDe come
home and put a poultice on your
eye or maybe pick birdshot outen
the seat of your pants.
Orderin' other folks off a pub-
lic ocean, stranger, that IS or-
derin'. And I been thinking' about
them icebergs 'which is a peril to
navigation and orderin' them out,
too, but I guess they maybe just,
overlooked them, temporary-and
they will be next.
Yours with the low down,

would be the ideal candidate for governor
S. a man who has risen from poverty to
success by the hardest sort of work who
has become an outstanding leader in his pro-
Sfession who is admired for his
S loyalty, integrity and ability...
a man of the people who knows
your needs.. .yet, who, because
of his success and high sense of
S honor, will be above the tempta-

Francis Whitehair knows the problems
of the poor man because he was desper-
ately poor. Unaided, he worked his way
through high school and college. He knows
the problems of the farmer because he is a
citrus grower and farmer. He knows the
problems of the business man because he is a
business man. He knows the problems of the
tax-payer because he is a tax-payer. A young
man... a strong, able man yet a simple,
friendly,approachable human being.
