Three Local Men

Receive Diplomas

From Fire College

Members of Volunteer Fire De-
partment Receive Instruction
At Daytona Beach

Chief Troy Jones, Wilbur Wells
and Sammie Davis, members of
the Port St. Joe Volunteer Fire
Department, are the proud owners
of certificates awarded them by
the State Fire College for passing
tests and examinations held dur-
ing the firemen's convention at
Daytona Beach last week.
Chief Jones took two courses
at the school, "Salvage anl Over-
haul Practices," giving pertinent
information as to the most rapid
and effective method of placing
covers to protect household fur-
nishings to reduce water .damage,
and "Forcible Entry and Minor
Extinguishment," a basic course
in training new recruits. The chief
feels. that the information he has
absorbed will result in the saving
of -thousands of dollars to home-
oWners of this city.
Mr. Wells took a course in "Du-
'ties and Responsibilities of Offi-
cers," dealing with organization
and. administration of depart-
ments of companies of but a few
men.
-' While Mr -Davis- was?-taken'-ill
shortly after arriving at Daytona,
he managed to take an examina-
tion in "Fire Fighting Tactics,"
which he passed successfully.
Sending of the three firemen to
the fire college was made possible
by the city commissioners, who
appropriated $75 for their ex-
penses, feeling that the instruc-
tion they received would be repaid
manyfold by increasing the effi-
ciency of the local fire depart-
ment.


Fire Truck Called

To Panama to Aid

In Oil Tank Blaze

Local Department Stands By to
Answer Alarms While Pan-
ama Trucks Fight Fire

The Port St. Joe fire truck and
members of the volunteer fire de-
partment were called to Panama
City about 9 o'clock Sunday night
in response to an urgent request
from officials of the neighboring
city for aid in fighting a gigantic
blaze caused when gasoline stor-
age tanks of the Sunny State Oil
company caught fire presumably
from a spark from a tank trucIr
which was loading from one of the
storage tanks.
Firemen of the Panama City
and Lynn Haven fire depart-
ments, using high pressure hose,
forced the burning oil into the
adjacent bayou and also prevented
a large tank holding 125,000 gal-
lons of gasoline from catching on
fire.
The St. Joe firemen, upon ar-
riving in Panama City, were in-
structed to station their truck at
the fire station to be in readiness
for any alarms that might be
turned in.. Members of the volun-
teer fire department making the
trip were Chief Troy Jones. GuS
Creech. Wilbur Wells, Willard
Lee, M. P. Tomllnson, Kenneth
Creech, John Blount, Joe Mira anJ
Carl Bounds.


PAN-AMERICAN DELEGATES HONORED AT DINNER

Mayor Sharit In Local Teams Lose


Safety Appeal


Having his attention called to
the large number of speeding
motorists in our city, and having
noted them himself, Mayor J. L.
Sharit yesterday issued an ap-
peal to drivers to drive moder-
ately within the city limits.
Speeders have been noted par-
ticularly on Long, Monument
and Garrison avenues and on
Hunter's Circle.
"There is very seldom any ne-
cessity for driving 40 and 50
miles an hour on these streets,"
said the mayor, "and those who
do so are endangering not only
their own lives, but the lives of
others-and particularly our chil-
dren, many of whom can always
be found playing in the streets.
"If this speeding continues,
the city officials will be com-
pelled to take drastic steps and
arrest and fine these habltuat
speeders-and that _we do not
want to do unless it is abso-
lutely necessary.
"Our schools will be opening
shortly," concluded Mr. Sharit,
"and if our speeding motorists
will break themselves of this
habit now, it may mean the say-
of one or more lives of chil-
dren."


Two Tilts Sunday

Chipley Defeats Exporters 5 to 3,
and Apalachicola Downs
St. Joe 5 to 4

In a double-header played at the
local baseball. park Sunday after-
noon, the Chipley team of the
West Florida League defeated the
Kenney Exporters of the Gulf
Coast League by a score of 5 to 3.
The Exporters were crippled and
had a makeshift lineup. However,
they should havd won the game
easily, according to their manager,
as it was the easiest competition
they had; faced all season.
The local mill boys played very
listless ball in the first inning,
making six errors and allowing
the visitors to make their five
runs, But they came to life and
shut out the Chipley team for the
remaining eight innings and made
three scores. Moore pitched a good
game, holding the Chipley batters
to .three hits. The Exporters made
eight hits, four of them for extra
bases, but had 14 men left on
base. It will be a long time before
they have another chance to face
such easy pickin's in pitchers.

tween Apalachicola and the Port

Keeping Step With the Times, The Star

Installs Latest Type Automatic Press

Keeping up with the parade of have increased with the rapid mercial printing in one or more


_progress that has transformed the
Sleepy little town of Port St. Joe
o7 three years ago into a modern,
bustling little city, and which gives
promise of more than doubling in
population during the next two
years, The Star this week installed
ore of the latest type automatic
Jo presses in order to care for
commercial printing orders thas
V


growth of the city.
The press, a Webendorfer Little
Giant, was purchased from the
American Type Founders company
through their branch office, In At-
lanta, Ga.,. and gives The Star one
of the most modern presses in
Northwest Florida between Talla-
hassee and Pensacola.
The press, is entirely automatic
and will handle all types of com-


colors with perfect register and
at high speed
We are indeed, proud to be able
to install his press in Port St.
Joe, as it speaks well of the sup-
port given us by the business men
of the city, and we invite every
resident of the city to come around
to The Star plant and see this
modern marvel of the printing in-
dustry.


ASSOCIATION MEMBERS FROM
SIX COUNTIES GATHER FOR
MEETING AND BANQUET

Port St. Joe was overrun with
the law Wednesday afternoon and
evening when members of the
Peace Officers association from
the six counties comprising the
Fourteenth Judicial Circilit gath-
ered here for a meeting and sea-
food supper at the Centennial au-
ditorium.
Chief of Police Gib Cushing of
Marianna, chairman of the district
association, acted as master of
ceremonies, assisted by Chief of
Police Troy Jones of this city.
After the blessing had been
given by City Commissioner B. W.
Eells, Chief Cushing stated that
the idea of these meetings was to
'endeavor "to put peace officers of
Florida on a professional basis, as
peace officers are just as much
professional or business men as
the publisher of The Star here at
my side, the lawyer, the dentist
or any other business man."
Concluding his talk by pointing
out that the peace officers "are
out to render better service to the
public in every way possible,'
Cushing then called on Mayor J.
-L. -Sharit for a-few -words.
"We are indeed glad to have all
of these officers with us tonight,'
said Mayor Sharit, "and I am of
the opinion that tonight Port St.
Joe is the most peaceful town in
the state of Florida. The city
commission of Port St. Joe will
render every assistance possible
to the association. We -hope you
will come again, as you will al-
ways find us glad to have you."
Lieut. Fitzhugh Lee of the state
highway patrol, who wag present
with six of his patrolmen, was
then called on for a few words, as
was City Commissioner J. E.
Bounds.
E. F. Wynn, chief of police of
Quincy, a guest of the association,

"OUT TO LUNCH"
France perished still observing a govern-
ment enforced "two-hour noon hour." Her
people were "out to lunch" socially, econom-
ically, politically and militarily when the Ger-
mans marched in. This is the only possible
conclusion to be drawn from news reports,
and in them lies an eternal warning for the
United States.
France carried "social reform" to the point
of national decay. Politically we have been
following a parallel path. We, too, have been
chasing rainbows of unreasoned reform sur-
rounded by burgeoning bureaucracy, sky-
rocketing debt, and crumbling initiative.
The world owes no one a living. The im-
pact of realism, not Hitler, destroyed France.
There is no security except that attained by
constant labor. This is not theory. It is d
basic law which will ultimately decide our fu-
ture individually and as a nation, as it did
that of France.
For long years we have acted on the be-
lief that by arbitrarily shortening hours o0
work, penalizing ambition and profit, and
curtailing productive enterprise, we could,
somehow, someday, lose ourselves in the dis-
tant blue haze of collective security. We have
been gyrating in a vicious, futile circle, labor
against capital, politician against business
man, community against community, with
professional "reformers" standing in the cen-


CLEANLINESS MAKES
FOR BETTER, SAFER
LIVING, SAYS BUZZET

The basic fundamentals of pub-
lic health falls indirectly on the
general sanitary conditions of tne
community. Cleanliness of one's
place not only helps to make bet-
ter and safer living for himself
but also for the whole community,
according to L. C. Buzzett, sani-
tary officer.
While disagreeable odors may
not be harmful, they should be
eliminated for esthetic and psy-
chological reasons, as well as for
decency and cleanliness.
Garbage in unprotected con-
tainers attracts flies, rats, dogs
and other animals. This is often
a means of support for a large ro-
dent and insect population. Gar-
bage should be placed in a cov-
ered metal container so that these
pests could not reach it, and, at
the same time "eliminate odors
therefrom.
Rubbish could be placed in open
containers or boxes, but should
not be accumulated because of
creation of a fire hazard and also
affords an opportunity for mo-
squitoes to breed in tin cans that
'become filled with rain water.
The mosquito which breeds in
such containers is the Aedes
Egypti and it -is by the means ot
this mosquito that dengue fever
and yellow fever Is conveyed.

Replacing explosives in coal
mining, a new process pumps oil

gure expands the tube, the' col Is

ter of the circle like circus ringmasters
cracking the whip of discontent. Witness the
provocative, business-baiting extremist gen-
eralizing on scattered abuses by industry, the
pathetic picture of thousands of communities
and millions of individuals vying for "free"
public money-each striving to get a share
of the loot. Meanwhile the voters have had a
curiously detached feeling toward annual
government deficits running into billions ot
dollars.
These are the things that destroy nations
and make rich pasturage for fifth columnists.
They destroyed France. If we go back to
work now, a nation of free men under a sys-
tem of free enterprise, they will not destroy
us-we will not be caught "out fo lunch."

A MATTER FOR THE CONSUMER
These new defense taxes don't bother the
average person very greatly. He may suffer
annoyance for a fraction of a second when he
has to fumble for odd pennies to take care
of the tax on a package of cigarets, or the
price of a movie, ticket or a bottle of beer.
For by and large we're a good-natured peo-
ple, willing to take a lot in our stride.
But when dispensers of bottled beer charge
15 cents for a 10 cent bottle and 20 cents for
the beer that has been selling at 15 cents,
stating that the boost in price is caused by
the new defense tax, then wve get mad. And
that is just what some of them in this neck
o' the woods are doing. They had better
watch their step, for the law provides a stiff
fine and jail penalty for just such people.

The innocent often suffer most in this old
world-and that is true in the case of war.
There will be a famine in Europe this win-
ter, unless all indications are wrong, and only
two powers will be comparatively immune.
Those are the two belligerent powers-Ger-
many and England. Germany has systematic-
ally looted the granaries of the countries she
has seized. And the English fleet is still ade-
quate to keep her merchant shipping going.

They're calling for American ambulance
drivers and Red Cross workers in Europe in
order that the wounded may be saved and
patched up so that there will be enough man-
power to continue the fighting.

Advertisers Live in















W HAT they promise in their advertisements,

and what they deliver in their merchandise, are

right there for all to see.
'If they deliver what they promise, they make

friends and steady customers. If not they make

enemies, lose patronage and finally go out of

business.

Those are the cold, hard reasons why honesty

is the best policy-especially in advertising.

But the real fact is that advertisers as a class

are humanly jealous of their good names. The

trade-marks of manufacturers and the published

recommendations of merchants are only ac-

corded to products, which they can offer you

with confidence an J pride.

You can trust thte ads to lead you to sound

values.

Gripping Drama

At Port Sunday

"The Mortal Storm" Said to Be
Most Timely Picture Ever
To Reach the Screen

Based on Phyllis Bottom'e's
powerful novel of two lovers and
a family caught in the toils of a
hate which startled, the world,
"The Mortal Storm," playing next
Sunday and Monday at the Port
theater, is said to be the most
timely and gripping motion pic-
ture ever to reach the screen.
Margaret Sullavan, James Stew-
art, Robert Young and Frank Mor-
gan are the stellar names topping
the large cast, with other import-
ant roles filled by Robert Staci-,
Bonita Granville, Iren'e Rich and
William T. Orr.
The production, in addition to
the drama of its plot, offers many
thrilling scenes pictured in the
headlines of today but seldom ii
ever before shown on the screen.
Not the least of these is the in-
terior of a concentration camp.

LOCAL TEAMS LOSE
TWO TILTS SUNDAY

(Continued from Page 1)
St. Joe town team, the Oystermen
took honors with a close score or
5 to 4. This was a fast and excit-
ing game, and it looked, like St.
Joe might win in the ninth inning,
but Billy Russell, hurler for tfe
Apalachicol-ans, pulled through.
Panama City has withdrawn
from the Gulf Coast League, which
rather upsets the schedule. Next
Sunday the Exporters play Wewa-
hitchka at Wewa; Apalachicola
plays at Carrabetle, and Port St.
Joe has no game scheduled.
Apalachicola will play the Ex-
porters here Wednesday, while St.
Joe goes to Carrabelle, and thb
Wewahitchka boys will rest.

The tourist trade in the United
States this year is forecast as a
six billion dollar business.
