Cone Reviews His

Record In Speech

To St. Joe Voters


During Tenure of Office Has
Treated Gulf County Ex-
ceptionally Well

Fred P. Cone, candidate for the
United States senate-spoke in this
city Saturday before the largest
crowd yet to turn out to hear any
candidate in any of the state races
deliver an address.
The governor was introduced by
Mayor J. L. Sharit, who stated that
Uncle Fred-, during his tenure as
governor, had given Gulf county
everything it had asked for and in
some instances more.
Governor Cone, in his address,
vigorously outlined not only his
record as governor, but enumer-
ated those things 'he will support
and work for if elected to the U.
S. senate.
In starting his speech he .com-
mented on the growth of Port St.
Joe, stating that I e hardly recog-
nized the place it has grown so
since he was here four years ago
in the interest of his campaign for
governor. "You have a wonderful
industry here," he said, "that will
bring pther industries .to build up.
your., county."
Kept 'Promise
"I promised. economy in govern-
mqnt four years ago," said the
governor, "and I have kept that
promise that 'We don't need any
more taxes." Florida is in a good
healthy condition, and so long as
I am governor. our pulse is going
to remain strong and the heart of
our people can rest at ease with
the, knowledge that we are in ex-
cellent financial condition.
"I am in favor of increased old
age assistance, and if elected I will

Straw Vote Is Creating



Intense Interest Among



Candidates and Voters


Star Office So Besieged With Information Seekers That Totals
Posted at St. Joe Hardware Store to Give
Editor Time to Get Work Done

The "Straw Vote" being conducted by The Star is. creating more
excitement over the county than a three-alarm fire and the voting
populace is taking a keen interest in the poll, though in the first few
days interest lagged.. But when the candidates themselves-the ones
most vitally interested in the figures being piled up-began to talk
about the poll and ask their supporters to cast their ballots in their
favor, the ballots began to roll into The Star office, and from present
indications fully 90 per cent of the cards mailed out will be voted.
For a time The Star office was the center of interest for poli-
ticians and others interested in the returns, and the phone was ring-
ing incessantly, until it finally became necessary, if the editor was
to get any work done, to place a score board at the St. Joe Hardware
Store where Horace Soule, who has more time than the editor to dally
with such matters, took over the

The spoken word barely asserts; the printed

STRAW VOTE IS "ON THE LEVEL"
As usual, in conducting a straw vote such
as The Star has underway at present in Ghlf
county, some persons, mostly disgruntled sup-
porters of candidates who are behind in the
showings and some of the candidates them-
selves, are bruiting it about that the poll is
not being conducted on the up-and-up and
that the editor is "favoring" certain office-
seekers by giving them more votes than ac-
tually appear on the cards returned.
Right here and now the editor wants to
emphatically state that this poll is strictly
"on the level," and that the figures are being
tabulated just as they come in. The Star has
come out in strong support of Governor Cone
and Spessard Holland and if we were going
to step up the standing of any candidates we
would choose these two. Yet both Holland
aed Cone, according to the figures, are far
behind. We are not endorsing any other can-
didates in any other race.
We were approached Wednesday, through
a third party, on behalf of a local candidate
who is falling 'way behind in his race accord-
ing to the figures (he- did not have the nerve
to come to us himself), with the proposition
that we sell him one hundred ballots in this
poll, that he would be glad to pay any rea-
sonable amount for them. in order that he
could make a good showing. We informed
the plenipotentiary of this misguided can-
date that the ballots were not for sale at any
price and that money cannot always buy
anything.


CONE GOING TO SECOND PRIMARY
The tremendous enthusiasm aroused by
Governor Fred P. Cone on his speaking tour
through the state has convinced the public
that Florida's "fighting governor" will be one
of the two battlers in the second primary.
The tone has changed in Port St. Joe since
"Old Suwannee" spoke here last Saturday and
voters who had been favoring_other entries
in the senatorial race are changing over to
the Cone bandwagon.
Political observers, who several weeks ago
failed to give the governor a chance, are now
devoting their time to finding out who will
be his opposing candidate in the final round.
The secret of the present swing to Cone
'lies in the perfect timing of his campaign. He
is carrying his campaign directly to the peo-
ple. He stands on his record of having per-
formed his promise of giving them economy
in government, of. opposing any new taxes,
of providing assistance for the aged. And
then he shows by facts and figures that the
state is in better financial shape today than
it was when he went 'into office.
With his record of performance to back
his statements, he presents a program of what
he hopes to do as Florida's United States sen-
ator, and his plans embrace the advancement
of every section of the state.
He is against this nation becoming involved
in any foreign war. In his address here Sat-
urday he said: "I hate war just like Roose-
velt does, and if I am elected your senator,
my vote will be cast for war in defense ol
our country, but not in defense of Europe
where they have been fighting regularly
since the fourteenth century. Your boys will
never go to Europe on my vote."
Yes, Mr and Mrs. Voter, all indications
seem to point unalterably to Uncle Fred be-
ing in there battling when the gong sounds
for the second and final round.

It seems that Massachusetts has some kind
of old claim to Maine, having bought the state
some 300 years ago. The Tea Party State
tried to hush it up, however, after the 1936
elections.-Boston Transcript.

It appears that the trouble with the world
today is that the greed of the dictators can't
be satisfied.

Keep smiling!

DeFuniak Springs

Gulf county and Port St. Joe
were well represented at the West
Florida Music Festival in DeFuniak
Springs last week by the Port St.
Joe high school band under'the di-
rection of Dan Farmer.
The 32-piece musical organization
turned in a splendid performance
in its appearance with eight other
Class "C" bands to win a second
division rating from the judges.
In the parade and drill work the
boys and girls won much favorable
comment.
What the organization may have
lacked in the way of experience
was more than offset by the "pep"
and spirit shown by the band mem-
bers, in all parts of the three-day
program.

WORK TO START ON

constructed has held up the work.
Now the project is again underway
and soon we will have a modern
road and bridge at this point.
Original plans of the state road
department called for relocating
the road and placing the bridge
about 1800 feet west of White City
which would have effected a sav-
ing of approximately $25,000, but
through the combined efforts of
Representative Lewis and Senator
Sharit, who pointed out that such
a move would leave property
owners at White City high and
dry, without a bridge and off the
main highway, and would cause
an enormous depreciation in their
investments, the road will remain
in its present location and traffic
will be handled without detouring
by way of Overstreet.

ON good roads or bad, at high speeds or low,
you are safer with the extra protection which only
Firestone Champion Tires provide.
On slippery roads, you have 3,456 sharp-
edged angles which bite through road film,
rain or mud and grip the road with a sure,
firm hold. That's your assurance of greater
protection against skidding!
On country roads or highways pitted
with chuck-holes, you have a 27% V
stronger bond between tread and cord
body than in any comparable tire
Firestone has ever built. This
construction is so amazingly strong
that the tread and body have become
a unit of almost unbelievable
strength. That's your assurance of
greater protection against bruises
and breaks!
At high speeds under a
blistering sun, you have 35%
greater protection against
failures caused by internal heat.
That's your assurance of greater
protection against blowouts!
And when it comes to long
wear-the 1940 Firestone
Champion Tire delivers 11%
longer non-skid mileage. That's
your assurance of Most Miles
Per Dollar!
For safety and economy, come
in today and let us equip your
ca with a set of new Firestone
1Cbmpiou Tires.
