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.

HOW WE STAND
Various local politicians have been seeking
to have The Star espouse their candidacies
editorially, but, as we have told them all, we
are endeavoring to remain neutral as far as
possible, feeling that The Star is the organ
of all the people and i dedicated to their
greatest good. However, should we feel that
lending support to a candidate or candidates
would redound to the benefit of all, we would
not hesitate to endorse some particular can-
didate. The columns of The Star are open to
all office-seekers on the same terms.
As regards state and national candidates,
we believe it our duty to choose and back
those whom we feel can do the most good for
this section. Our position on public policies
remains the same as when, the first issue of
The Star came off. the press-we stand for
the truth and for the right, and will advocate
this policy without reflection on any candi-
date who may see eye to eye with us or who
has different views.

." WHICH COWS ARE YOURS?
"Political cows" afford a little entertaining
feature worth repeating at this time. The
big question involved is which type of cow do
you prefer, if any? Here they are:
Socialism-You have two cows. You give
one of them to your neighbor.
Fascism-You have two cows. You give
both of them to the government. The govern-
ment gives you part of the milk.
Nazi-ism-You. keep the two cows, feed
them and give the milk to the government.
The government sells part of the milk back
to you.
Communism-The government shoots you
and keeps both the cows.
New Dealism-The government shoots one
cow, milks the other and pours the milk down
the drain.
Standpatism-You improve your two cows,
sell the milk for a song and keep still.


TO MY GULF COUNTY
FRIENDS
When one works hard to serve
his. constituents, there is always
comfort in feeling that perhaps
duty has been well done. And when
one's friends unanimously decide
that an officer is entitled, to work
on without opposition, comes a
sense of overwhelming thankful-
ness and appreciation that words
cannot describe. Let me simply.say
that Joe Hunter appreciates your
confidence and thanks you from
the bottom of his heart for this
honor at.your hands.
Faithfully,
JOE HUNTER,
Your Clerk of the Circuit Court.

CARD OF THANKS
I wish to express my sincere ap-
preciation to the good people of
Gulf County, who have expressed
their confidence in my. ability andi
integrity as the Sheriff of this
county. Your consideration .and
your unanimous support in return-
ing me to office will result in a
continuation of honest and effici-
ent support. Thank you.
BYRD PARKER.


KITE FLYING TIME
Kite flying right now seems to be one of
the major juvenile sports in Port St. Joe.
Kite flying is great sport-in fact, the editor
has felt like making one and taking it out
himself. But we would like to issue a little
advice to the kite flying youngsters
Remember, kids, that high tension wires
and kites are a potential source of tragedy.
Every year we read in the papers of cases of
electrocution from kites becoming entangled
in power lines. Fly your kite in open fields
away from electric lines. Use cotton cord for
string-never use wire or tinselled string, as
they conduct electricity. Never run across
highways while getting your kite in the air.
And above all, should your kite become en-
tangled in power or telephone wires, never
climb the poles to get it down; go to' the
power company or the telephone company
and tell them about it. Let them take it down,
both for your own good and theirs.

Believe it or not, there is a determined
economy bloc working in congress and, so far
at least, it has produced some results. There
is, however, considerable question as to
whether it will-win out in the end-the ad-
vocates of more spending are many and
strong, and they are massing solidly behind
the farm and national defense measures. Out-
look is that something of a compromise will
be reached so far as spending in general is
concerned. Some bureaus will get less money
but expenditures which affect large numbers
of voters, and in which, as a result, all elec-
tive officials have a political stake, will be
large-though perhaps not as large as last
year.

"Where there is individual 'opportunity
there is progress; where there is no individual
opportunity there is no progress," says an
exchange. Right now, in Port St. Joe, there is
plenty of opportunity for individual progress.

Whatever, by the way, happened to all that
commotion about strapless evening gowns?
-Clermont Press. It was dropped, just like
what we expected to happen to the' strapless
evening gowns, but were always disappointed.

The poets used to write of "sun crowned"
youth-but that was before it got so hard to
get 'em up in the morning.-Florida Times-
Union. Modern-day poets are writing of
"moon-struck" youth-they stay up all night.

This political campaign hit the editor just
right. We haven't had to buy any firewood
during the cold spell-just kept the stove
roaring with political propaganda.

Editor The Star:
If I was starting' out to fool
somebody and trying' to put over a

horse with the heaves or some-
thing, I would steer clear of old
Yankeeland. And the reason I'm
thinking' of the Yanks is on ac-
count of that Mr. Tobey. Those
old 'boys with the whang in the
voice, there between the Penob-
scot and the Connecticut, they
don't buy wooden nutmegs-they
sell 'em.
And this new idea of askin-
everybody 83 questions, and looking'
down our gullet, and under the
house when they're takin' the cen-
sus and just supposed to count us,
has riled up Mr. Tobey.
