Largest Single Contribution Yet
Received In Drive for Mu-
nicipal Project

J. E. Bounds, chairman of the
committee in charge of the drive
to raise funds for construction ot
a municipal hospital in Port St.
Joe with the aid of WPA funds,
reported this week that he had re-
ceived a check for $1500 from Mrs.
Alfred I. duPont for the cause.
This is the largest single contra-
bution yet received and a letter of
appreciation was immediately dib-
patchedi to Mrs. DuPont by Mr.
Bounds and Mrs. Basil E. Kenney,
secretary, of the committee.
The fund is growing rapidly, and
from present indications work will
be started on. the building in the
very near future, which will give
Port St. Joe one of the most mod-
ern and up-to-date hospitals in this
section of Florida.

CONGRATULATIONS
Toni-ght seventeen, high school students
will be graduated from the Port St. Joe high
school and will go forth into the world of
higher education or business, their high school
days over and done with forever.
The parents of those students who sit on
the stage during the commencement exercises
tonight will feel mingled sentiments of pleas-
ure, pride and sorrow. Pleasure because their
sons and daughters have gone through hign
school and have been found fitted. to receive.
their diplomas; pride because it is no little
thing to guide a child in the way he or she
should go for eighteen years so that they may
reach this important milestone in their path
of progress through- life; sorrow that their
little child has approached womanhood or
manhood and must bel reckoned as a distinct
individual. And to these feelings probably
will be added a tincture of regret that Father
Time relentlessly unfolds the years and their
young ones must leave the parental nest foi.
a career and experiences of their own, apart
from the watchful and protective parental in-
ifluence.
,This is merely life, however, and the re-
gret probably will be tempered by the hope
and prayer that the graduate from high
school will so conduct himself or herself that
the future record ,will become a source ot
pride and satisfaction to the parents who view
the commencement ceremonies this evening
with sometimes misty eyes.
Whatever, their record is to be in the fu-
ture, The Star joins with the rest of Port St.
Joe in congratulating their parents and their
educators upon their having reached the point
where they are honored in bidding goodby to
high school, and wishes them nothing but
success in whatever they undertake in the
future.

Speaking of Hitler's Scandinavian adven-
ture, Major' Gerohe Fielding Eliot recently
wrote: "While Germany cannot afford to lose,
Britain cannot afford to let her .win." Ger-
man deefat would mean that important Scan-
dinavian resources would be lost to the reich,
and that she must face war'on two fronts. A
German victory would mean the virtual col-
lapse of British prestige amongst the neutrals.
To quote Mr. Eliot again: "No other little
nations in Europe would depend much on
Allied guarantees if even Norway, on Brit-
ain's doorstep, cannot be rescued from the
Nazis." .

Candidates are warned to remember that
a law passed by the 1937 legislature prohibits
the distribution of campaign cards or litera-
ture within 100 yards of any polling place.

Upon state and district offices Gulf county
should vote as a unit, for thereby its influ-'
ence will be felt throughout the state, and
when we go out after something we can be
pretty certain that we'll get it.

Be sure to vote Tuesday, if you are regls-
tered, even though you don't cast your bal-
lot for Fred P. Cone or Spessard Holland.

Keep smiling! .

Paid Political Advertising
While the rest of the world is depressed by
wars and the misery they entail, it is inter-
esting to know,that two great fairs for edu-
cation and amusement will open this month PEAY
in New York and San Francisco. What a
contrast to the death, destruction and debt $
that face warring nations! At the fairs in
California and New York will be presented
a record of industrial and intellectual achieve-
ment' for the betterment of humanity.

The so-called "economy drive" in congress,
as the cynics expected, has shot its feeble bolt.
The gentlemen of Capitol Hill are attempting -.
to outdo each other in spending the taxpayers 1-
money. For this is a general election yea,
and it is popular political belief that money :
makes the mare go when it comes to getting
votes.

The fast developing war continues to o'b-
scure domestic events in. the headlines. That
must cause considerable anguish among the
many presidential, aspirants, .who see space
given to bloody events in Europe which un-
der happier circumstances would be devoted .
to political speeches and manifestos.

Senator C. O. Andrews is distributing postal
cards bearing his picture that were printed in
St. Paul, Minnesota. They carry the St. Paul
Typographical Union Label No. 15.

Next Wednesday the voters will all be
congratulating the winning candidates and
telling them how'hard they worked for them. DINLEY FUB ITURE COMPINY

TO THE CITIZENS AND VOTERS
OF GULF COUNTY
I sincerely want to serve you as
your County Commissioner, and -if'
you elect me, I shall serve you
just as if you hired me in your'
private business. I will not treat
the job as if it belonged to me, but
will consult with all who are in-
:erested enough to do so, on every
matter of a controversial nature
which comes before the Board.
I believe our taxes are too high,
and I will work for a reduction of
same by trying to encourage.
among the other four members- of.
the Board the economical and ju-"
dicious expenditure of all publi&-
monies through the Board's hands.'
For me to pledge a lot of things.
which the other four members:
might not concur in does not con-
form to my idea of honesty" wtih
the people constituting Gulf Coui-,
ty; and I sincerely expect to mak
you the very best Commissioner I.
possibly can. -7
Thanking each and every, one,
for their vote and support, and ab-
suring those who have volunteered
their help in' my race of my deep-'
est appreciation, I am,
Sincerely yours, .,

mately two million dol-
lars per year of Federal aid for road con-
struction, Mr. Lee simply asked the courts
to settle the question. In so asking the
courts to direct him, Mr. Lee declined and
refused to set himself up as a czar or a
dictator to interpret the law. He followed
the Constitution when he turned' to our
courts, and the courts told him to turn the
money over to the State Road Departtment
where the law requires that it be spent
by the Road Department on highways
within the respective counties.
The. Supreme Court of, Florida, which
we must follow unless we are to abandon
democratic government and turn to dicta-
torships or anarchy, not only sustained the
State Comptroller in what actions he had
taken but commended his vigilance in pro-
tecting the monies of the state's taxpayers.
During the litigation the State. Comp-
troller protected the monies and held them
intact and inviolate and in co-operation
with other state officials all of those
monies, except those monies spent in direct
co-operation with those counties them-
selves, were held in the state treasury
where they would be available for action
anid appropriation of the legislature itself
at the 1939 session in order that the chosen
representatives of the people themselves
might pass oh the handling of these mil-
ions.
The 1939 legislature met, legislated, and
adjourned, and' one of Mr. Lee's opponents
voted, for a bill, later signed by the Gover-
nor, giving som-e of these monies to the
State Road Department irrevocably. The
remainder of the monies were left to be
disposed of under the original act as sus-
tained by the Supreme Court of Florida.
Contrary to propaganda; in many cases
passed out by those who had been benefit-
ing by the illegal use of these gas tax
monies, not a single county loses as much
as one thin dime. Every penny of the
mone that had been going to your Board

ties-we repeat, every dime-still goes to
the credit of your county without a single
:enny of deduction, BUT-
It is spent-and this is by decree of thu
Supreme Court-by the State Road De-
partment on highways IN YOUR COUNTY.

If we can't trust these
matters to our courts and'
follow the conclusions of

After the legislature
had passed so many con-
flicting laws, Comptroller
Lee found, following the
1937 session of the legis-
lature, that he was told
to spend' the. same gas
tax dollars as many as (

counties and 3 to 4 ways
in others-and those of

of approximately $2,000,-
000 per year of Federal
money going to the State Road Dept. and
use this money in other states. In the.face
of this situation Comptroller Lee called in
and talked to Federal men in the state .and
then wired the Federal authorities in Wash-
ington, telling them that there would be no
further diversion of gasoline tax monies,
and the Federal Bureau of Roads announc-
ed it would continue to send $2,000,000 per
year to Florida for road building purposes,
and it has done so since then, providing ap-
proximately $6,000,000 in all, or enough
money to build approximately 150 miles of
highways.
FINALLY, and you and your neighbor-
ing'taxpayers have only to look about you

$266,933 of gas tax money has been sup-
plemented by $228,572 of Federal aid and
\yPA money and work is now under way
gn projects in Port St. Joe totaling $174,753
while $172,079 has been spent on the Pan-
ima City road out of Wewahitchka.
Other projects are being developed at
this time for work to start in the near fu-
ture in Port St. Toe calling for the expen-
diture of $148,673.
These are projects that you people-for
years-have been clamoring for and have
paid your gas tax to get. They are road
projects that you have needed and wanted
but until Comptroller Lee brought the
matter to the attention of the courts and
followed the dictates of our courts-which
considered all the facts, all the laws and
the Constitution-this money was not spent
on these projects.
These projects are important to you and
your neighbors and we have the word of
the Chairman of the State Highway De-
partment that it could not have been done
had diversion of these gasoline tax monies
continued, bringing about the additional
loss of approximately $2,000,000 per year
of Federal aid.
