Secretary of War

Given Data On St.

Joe As Naval Base

Senator Claude Pepper Turns Over
Letter and Map Pointing Out
Advantages of Bay

Word was received this week by
Mayor J. L. Sharit from U. S. Sen-
ator Claude Pepper that he had
placed in the hands of the secre-
tary of -the navy Mr. Sharit's let-
ter (published last week in The
Star) and a map pointing out the
advantages of Port St. Joe as a
logical place for a naval airport in
the present national defense pro-
gram.
Senator Pepper in his letter
stated "I assure you that it will
afford me genuine pleasure to be
of any assistance in this respect."
The advantages of this section
as a naval base were pointed, out
by The Star in the issue of Feb-
ruary 10, 1939, at which time it
was stated that due to our land-
locked harbor with its 32 square
miles of protected deep water
and the fact that it was well in-
land yet but a short flying time
from, the Atlantic coast, it would
be one of the most logical loca-
tions for such a base.

HORTON TO OPERATE
NEW SERVICE STATION
C. W. "Red" Horton has leased
thh new Sinclair service station
at the corner of Monument ave-
nue and Fourth street and will
serve the public with Sinclair
products on a 24-hour-a-day basis.
In addition, Mr. Horton has pu--
chased the Lee taxi service and
will operate it in future. The
phone number for a taxicab will
henceforth be 126.

Business Men

Discuss Credit


Plans Developed to Exchange In,
formation Among Members;
Will Close Labor Day

The main topic of discussion at
a special called meeting of the
Port St. Joe Business Men's as-
sociation held Monday night at
the Legion Hut, was the matter of
credit business.
It was the consensus of opinion
of all present that too much is
being lost by. merchants by ex-
tending credit to everyone asking
for it, and a move was put under
way whereby the secretary of the
organization, B. B. Conklin, will
be furnished with the names of
all those who fail to pay their ac-
counts, and this irdormation will
be compiled and sent to all mem-
bers in good standing from time
to time. In addition, the secretary
will keep an index of all such per-
sons, and when they seek credit
from any merchant he will be at
liberty to check with the secretary
and find whether or not the indi-
vidual is or is not a good risk.

Drivers' Licenses

Required by Oct. 1


County Judge Carter May Start
Issuing Them During
September

'County Judge Thos. R. L. Car-
ter is not quite sure Just when
he will receive the application
blanks for drivers' licenses, but
according to information from the
department of public safety, he
hopes to have them by September
1, although it's possible they will
not be received before September
15. All drivers are supposed) to
have their new license on or be-
fore October 1.
According to W. F. Reid, direc-
tor of the department of public
safety, no licenses will Tie issued
to .habitual drunkards and persons
too old and infirm to properly op-
erate automobiles.
When there is any doubt as to
a person's ability to operate ac
automobile, an examination will be
held by a patrolman of the state
road patrol and the license will be
issued only if the person is found
to be fully capable of operating an
automobile.
Court records will be searched
and other- reliable sources of in-
formation will be used in getting
a list of habitual drunkards in aq,
effort to rid the state highways of


all possible incompetent drivers.
Cases will be investigated by the
state motor patrol.
The state patrol has been very
active in their investigation ot
doubtful cases, and under the law
authority is granted to the aepart-
ment to refuse licenses to incom-
petent persons. Mr. Reid con-
cluded by saying it was the ;nten-
tion of his department to make
the highways of Florida safe for
visitors and residents alike.

Fishermen Are Warned
About Goldfish for Bait

Florida Game Laws Say They Are
Illegal and Must Not Be Used

A report that an out-of-state fish
hatchery was shipping goldfish
into Florida for use as live bait
has caused I. N. Kennedy, execu-
tive secretary of the state commis-
sion of game and fresh watei-
fish, to remind Florida anglers
that their use is illegal. The gold-
fish, Kennedy says, at times are
not sold as goldfish, but are called
various kinds of minnows, and, In
addition, are not always gold-col-
ored.
'"But they are still goldfish," he
says, "and the game and fish laws
of Florida clearly state that gold-
fish cannot be used as bait. The
laws also forbid theimportation of


permit from the commission of
game and fresh water fish."
Goldfish are members of the
carp family, which is very pro-
lific, and a likely danger is that
unused goldfish "bait" discardeG.
by anglers in streams or lakes
will reproduce, spread rapidly and
become a menace.

"WE WHO ARE YOUNG"

chance of young Americans to
marry and establish homes of
their own in the midst 'of a big
city, "We Who Ard Young," fea-
turing Lana Turner and John
Shelton, plays Tuesday only a:
the Port theater.
The drama deals with the story
of a boy and girl employed by th'-
same firm who fall in love and
marry. They plan to live on thtir
combined' incomes. Because of a
"no married women" ruling of the
concern the girl is fired when
news of the marriage leaks out.
'The discovery that she is to
have a babyforces the husband to
borrow money from a loan house.
When his payments are late, his
salary is attached and he loses
his job. How the youngsters man-
age to master the seemingly in-

them makes for one of the great-
est human interest stories ot

The St. Joe Exporters continued

til the fifth inning, when they got
on to his curves and' scored five
runs to lead 5 to 3. Curt Lynn, on
the mound for the Exporters,
struck out 10 men in the 51/2 inn-
ings he hurled. He was reliever
by Thomason, who held the Apa-
lachicola team in hand during the
remainder of the game.
Hec Jones hit a homer in the
eighth with one on and tied the
score, and in the ninth, Thomason
won his own game with a tremen-
drive over the left .field wall. Jim

'Ghost Breakers' Is

Hair Raising Film

Bob Hope and Paulette Goddard
Amuse and'Thrill In Merry
Mystery Coming to the Port

If you never saw a hair-raising
comedy before don't miss bubbling
Bub Hope and sparkling Paulette
Goddard in "The Ghost Breakers,"
coming Sunday and Monday to
the Port theater. It's thrilling and
spoofing with ghosts and gags fol-
lowing each other in rapid succes-
sion. One minute you hold your
breath and the next you let it go
in a side-splitting laugh.
Miss Goddard play,.s the part of
a wealthy girl who suddenly finds
she has inherited an old castle in
Cuba. Ignoring the warnings not
to visit it, she prepares to go.
Bob, as a gossipy radio commen-
tator, hides in her trunk after es-
caping from a gangster he has of-
tended on the air. Delivered to her
stateroom in the trunk he nearly
frightens her to death when she
opens it. He convinces her he is
a ghost breaker and insists on go-
ing with her on the adventure,
which turns out to be a romance.
When they arrive at the castle
they fight their way through a
veritable chamber of horrors be-
fore they arrive at the reason for
the great interest in having hei
give up the castle-but it wouldn't
be fair to tell about it now. It Is
sufficient to say that the hero and
heroine, having been through so
much together, can't get along
without each other.

It takes ten civilians behind the
lines to maintain one soldier at
the front.

After a perilous voyage during part of which death seemed to lurk
in every wave, the army transport "American Legion" arrived in
New York harbor Wednesday with more than 800 American refu-
gees. The voyage, which began at Petsamo, Finland, on August
16, carried the vessel through mine areas north of Scotland at a
time when Germany was proclaiming unrestricted warfare in British
waters and did not guarantee safe passage for the vessel.

A GOOD SPORTSMAN
A game warden has listed what
he believes to be the essential of
a good sportsman, as follows:
1. Be as courteous to me as. I
am to you.
2. Display game and licenses
without bVing asked when I iden-
tify myself as a warden.
3. Think of a warden as an aid
to better fishing and hunting,
rather than an obstacle to your
hunting and fishing happiness.
