SThe 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
Sis lost; the printed word remains.

Our board of city commissioners has ap-
plied for a federal loan and-grant for the pur-
pose of constructing an electric generating
plant -and distribution system' which, it is
planned will be a self-sustaiining utility. The
amount of the loan and grant has not yet
been made public, but it is understood to be
in the neighborhood of $175,000.
Of course this is a wonderful opportunity
for the city to get a 'geat gob of government
money, a large part of which will be spent
in Port St. Joe during construction of the
plant and distributing system, but will the
electric system be self-sustaining? .
.When our water and sewer systems were
installed a rate was fixed which, it-was be-
lieved, would take care of payments on-the
principal and interest, and it was pointed out
that within. a year's -time there should be at
least 500 more customers taking water and
,rsing the sewer system. Such has; not been
0the case,, and as a cposequence the minimum
charge for ~iater users was recently hiked in
order to take care of operating expenses and
1i'rincipal aand interest.
W Would hot. the-saime thing, perhaps, apply
;to a municipally-owned electric plait at this
timeme' At present there 'is not an overly
large number of users of electricity, and if
-the city were to go into competition with the
present power corporation there would be a
considerable number who, for various rea-
sons-lack of interest in city affairs or for
purely personal reasons-would continue to
secure their 'electricity from the Florida
Power corporation. As a consequence the
"cost of electricity secured from the city's
plant would be exorbitant.
It has been pointed out that a number of
cities in Florida' are"practically paying all op-
erating expenses of the city from municipally-
owned .water and light plants. This is true,
but these cities are considerably larger than
Port St. Joe with a consequent larger num-
ber of consumers. I "'
The Star is not taking the city' commission-
ers to task over this matter. We are -merely
endeavoring to point out that if our water
and sewer systems are not self-sustaining-
and they are used by a majority or the people
,of the city-then an electric system would
not, at the present time, be self-sustaining,
due to the fact that the city would be in com-
petition with the Florida Power corporation
which would be bound to retain a consider-
able number of its present customers.
Why not wait until the customers are here
before going into the electric business?

According to Collier's Magazine promoters
of the California pension plan-"Thirty Dol-
lars Every 'Thursday"-one of whom was
convicted in 1934 in- federal court of using
the mails to defraud, are collecting $2400 a
day, in small contributions from old people
who hope to benefit from the proposed sys-
The pension leader whose criminal record

Two hundred thousand Californians are re-
ported to have joined the movement, which
is promoting and sponsoring a constitutional
amendment to effect the payment by the state
of $30 a week in-scrip to all unemployed citi-
zens over 50, and the membership is reported
to be increasing at the rate of.2000 a day.
Dues are a cent a day, payable at the rate
of 30. cents each month in advance. In addi-
tion, Collier's reports, Allen has.sold 200,000
copies of the movement's bible, "Ham and
Eggs for Californians," at 25 cents each, and
50,000 tiny Liberty Bells, insignia of the or-
ganization, at the same price.
In an effort to forestall any possibility that
the pensioii amendment, if adopted, might be
termed hndcdisstitutional, the promoters have
inserted in it a clause stating that "no injunc-
tion.or ..wvrit of mandate or other legal or
equitable process shall ever issue- to interfere
with the administration of this article, or to
prevent or enjoin any provision of this article,
going into effect." They then added a clause
stating that."if any c'..tio,n., subsection, sen-
teniae, clause or phrase of the constitution of t
the state of California .is in conflict with any I
of the provisions of this article, such section;
subsection, sentence, clause or phrase is, to
the extent of such conflict, hereby-repealed."
In case this' were not enough, the pro- i
meters of the plan concluded the proposed
amendrient with "in.'the. event that any de-
cision or order of any, court shall hold invalid 0
or- unconstitutional any- provision,, section, i,;
subsection, sentence, clause or phrase of this
article, or the application thereof to any per-
son or circumstance, such decision or order t
shall not affect the validity of the remaining b
portions of this article." t
Collier's states that many thousands of a
persons who are not themselves eligible for -
the pension but who have dependents who t
are, plan to vote for the amendment on the tl
theory that "it may be a racket and maybe tl
it won't work for more than a couple of
weeks, but that will be $60 more than I ever a
got before for one vote." b
It is.estimated that if the amendment is fi
adopted, 500,000 persons will sign up for $30 e
every Thursday, which in one year would re- it
suit in the issuance of $780,000,000 in scrip. 31

Brady Nell Makes Only Score Or
Fumble and 65-Yard Dash

The. St. Joe Sharks were de-
feated last Friday by Florida High
of Tallahassee in their first home
game by a score of 20-6. This was
the second. game of the season,
and even though the.Sharks were
doreated, it is believed they have
-the makings of a winning team.
Two touchdowns were scored in
the first quarter, but after this the
St. Joe boys tightened down and
oaly allowed one more six-pointer
o slip through their fins. The two
.xtra points were the result of a
safety committed by the visitors.
The Sharks were saved from
complete destruction when Brady
Nell recovered a fumble and ran
approximately 65 yards for the
first touchdown of the season by
the local aggregation. The Florida
High- boys were held up by the
work of Rufus Keel.
This about sums up the game;

folks of the second home game,
