Lighting Rate

Here Reduced

Reduction Made In Commercial
Rate Throughout Edtire
-' System- -'=

Lowering of the commercial
lighting rate was officially an-
nounced this week by Coombs, western division, manager.
for the Florida Power corporation
which supplies' electricity for Port
.St. Joe. This reduction has been
made throughout practically all of
the company's system. Total an-
nual saving to customers resulting
from this and' other reductions dir-
ing the past 30 days is. approxi-
mately $45,000.
..The following commercial light-
ing rate is effective. based -on me-
ter readings taken bon and. after
,November 1: Minimum'n monthly
charge $1.50, which includes the
use of 15 kilowatt hours;' next 35
kwh, 9 cents' per kwh; next 159
kwh. 8 cents per kwh; next 800
kwh, 7 cents per kwh; next 3000
kwh, 5 cents per kwh; next 3000
kwh, 3 cents pei kwh; all excess
over 7000 kwh, 2 cents per kwh.
Commenting on the rate change,
Mr. Coombs stated: "This reduc-
tion has been made possible by a
combination of increased use by
this class of consumer and in-
creased operating efficiency on
the part of the company. However,
operating expenses continue' up-
ward, the most recent item being
compliance with the new federal
wage-hour law. The company en
pects to maintain its policy of pro.
viding electric service at the low'
est possible rates."

ELECTRIC RATE



Reduced!


Lower Commercial Lighting Rate

On :Noemnber 1, 1938, the new, lower Commercial Light'
ing Rate quoteJ below went into effect. Commercial electric
bills base. on iester readings taken on and after November 1
will reflect the savings due to this change. Electric rate re-
ductiocs nmde throughout the Company's system during the
past thirty days will provide annual savings of approximately
$45,000 to our customers.


THE NEW, LOWER
Commercial Lighting Rate

Minimum Monthly Charge:
#1.50 per month which includes the use of 16 KWH.
;For Additional Use Per Month:


All excess over 7,000 AWH @ 2c per KWH

Commercial lighting has always been a good salesman.
Mnder this new rate, it will be an even better one.

THIS REDUCTION MADE DESPITE THE'
ADDED EXPENSE OF COMPLIANCE
WITH FEDERAL WAGE-HOUR LAW

This new Commercial Lighting rate was made possible
by a combination of increased use by our cus:niers and in-
creased efficiency on the part of the Comr However,
the Company's operating expenses continue ul...ard. One of
the recent items of added expcrnse is compliance with the
new Federal Wages and Hours law which went into effect on
October 24, 1938. The Company expects to maintain its policy
of providing electric service at the lowest possible rates.

The spoken -Woi'd is given scant attention;
the printed word is thoughtfully weighed.
The spoken word barely asserts; the printed
word thoroughly convinces.' The spoken word
is lost; the printed word remains.

AND IT CAME TO PASS-
On September 30 The Star carried an edi-
torial commenting on Adolph Hitler's speech
to the world in which he stated that he would
take the Sudeten area of Czechoslovakia by
force if necessary. The editorial follows:
In listening to Hitler's strange speech
over the radio it struck us that he some-
what resembles the Mad Hatter in "Alice
In Wonderland" whose next words or acC
tions no one could predict. Truly, this Ger--
man dictator has gone mad and may well
be called the, Mad Hatter of Europe, whose',
next words or actions none can predict.
One phrase stood out in his talk, which
gives a clue to what he has in mind. It was:
"This is the last territorial demand I
will make in Europe -but it must be
met." .
This indicates that after he has annexed
the Sudeten area of Czechoslovaxia he will
turn his .eves to the colonies taken from
Germany during the World War..If Hitler
can carry through his bluff it will oive him
possession .-1 a..rich mining and
manufacturing district which. will supply,-
him with the sinews of war.
He knows that as soon as he seizes the
Sudeten areas, Hungary and. Poland will
also make similar grabs, and ill of Czecho-
slovakia will eventually be -partitioned
among the'hungry wolves. And when this
happens, Nazi Germany will be the ruling
power from the Rhine to the Black Sea
and Herr Hitler's head will, be so swollen
with power that there is no telling what,
his actions will be.
The peaceful submission of the Czechs to'
Hitler's demands will .not make for the.:
peace of Europe. It might, temporarily,
until Germany has her military might prop-
erly marshaled for further demands, but
that is all.
And now this prediction has come to pass,
for this week General Franz Ritter von Epp,"
governor of Bavaria and Hitler's deputy for
colonial affairs, made the statement that
Germany lays claim, to all her pre-war colo-
nies without exception.
Germany may not demand outright return
of all the colonies, Von Epp indicated, but he:
added that in that event "we shall demand
compensation for whatever we don't claim."
"Our claim," continued the general, "is to
all our former colonies. Whether, when the
actual moment for bargaining for them comes
we shall show restraint, is for the future to
decide. We expect those who seized the colo-
nies to take the initiative for restoration, and
Germany claims colonies only from those
who deprived her of them."
Hitler has out-bluffed other nations to
date, and now he is continuing, with his bluff-
ing. If he secures the former colonies, or
"compensation" for them, in either case he
will be in a position to build his war machine
to gigantic proportions with the idea of even-
tually being a world dictator.,
Von, Epp states that "we will never attempt
to solve the colonial problem vy military
force," but the lie, is given to that in his later
statement that "whether .. we shall show
restraint is for the future to decide."
Like Kaiser Bill, Herr Hitler has visions
of gmndeur and it looks like another "Me
unt Gott" proposition in the offing.

A dollar spent in Port St. Joe is a dollar
kept in local circulation. A dollar spent with
a mail order house is gone forever.


COMES THE SEASON OF THE YEAR
Residents of Port St. Joe and Gulf county
love their hunting season-and why shouldn't
they? The variety and abundance of game in
Gulf county offers a challenge which every
hunter in this section is eager to meet.
The hunting season officially opens on No-
vember 20 and hunters are asked to observe
strictly the bag limits for the reason that by
observance of'our game laws by Iveryone
ther'.twill be plenty of good hunting for all,
and it ihe bag limits are observed this happy
*tafe "of affairs will continue through the
years to come.
Those who in their enthusiasm for the
sport of hunting violate the bag limits or dis-
regard the game conservation laws will surely
destroy the thing they love if they continue
suih practices for long.
It is the duty of every sportsman to pro-
tect the game fields by observing the law
himself and by reporting any game law vio-
lations, he .may observe. In this way, and in
this way only, will there continue to be game
in plenty in Gulf county and a field for the
hunter to shot over.

"NO NEWS"
Rip-snorting Old Sol had come to the little
,city of Elkhart, Ind., on a cloudless August
day. It was too hot to think-let it go at that.
Everybody felt that way, so it v n't surpris-
ing when the city editor of the Elkhart Truth,
the city's daily paper, walked into the man-
aging editor's office and said; in an editorial
gloom: "There's no news today; what'll we
do for Page One ?"
"What? No news?" exclaimed the manag-
ing editor, comfortable in his arr-conditioned
Room. 'Well, that is news!'" he yelled, and
swished around to his type. writer and wrote
the screaming headline: "3500 People and
No News!"
'I'hen followed a two-dolmn', front-page
story. about "Thirty-five thousand people
dwelling in harmony, policemen oin. bking-
hot beats with no exciting work to do, work-
-:neii shuttling between lhnie-,and job aid no
labor trouble, folks watching, the, baseball
scoreboards, fish peddlers dealing out bait to
hopeful anglers, mothers and wives cooking
suppers in tranquil kitchens, kids in the swim-
ming holes, the icemen chatting at the back
doors.
"No news? Ten thousand families and not
a single murder to sing its dirge of violence
in screaming headlines.. Fifteen thousand au-i
tomobiles and not a serious accident to send.
ambulances roaring down the streets to the
hospitals with Pleeding cargoes of dead and
maimed humanity. Ten thousand families and
not a single sensational line of divorce to set
,gossips' tongues to wagging.
"Just a community of 35,000 good folks,

ures, quietly and, to all appearances, happily.
Did anything like that ever happen before?
'No news. That is the biggest' piece of news
that has ever happened."-Sunshine Maga-
zine, Richfield, Ill.

THREE THINGS
There are three things the United States
must do, says Charles Benedict, writing in
the current issue of The Magazine of Wall
Street, and he lists them thus, after making
a summary of the international situation:
1 We must unite the Americas under the
Monroe Doctrine.
2. We must prevent minority groups from
gaining political power and influence in our
country. Having observed the lessons in the
bloodless psychological wars fought abroad,
we must take the measures necessary to nul-
lify such attempts to cause political disturb-
ances of this insidious type in our country.
3. We must arm, to the teeth If we wish
to preserve our country-our liberties-and
keep alive in the world the spark of civiliza-
tion which the brute force of Nazism is en-
deavoring to destroy.-St. Augustine Record.

How about curing sit-down strikers with
a box of tacks ?-Florida Times-Union. How
you going to raise 'em up to insert the tack?


The man who does not advertise
because someone told him it does
not pay, if course believes that
the world is flat instead of round
because some ancient once held
that belief.
