COUNTY COMMISSIONERS ASK
THAT PORT ST. JOEE CARE'
FOR ONE-THIRD OF COST
Appearing before the board of
city commissioners Tuesday eve-
ning, Dave Gaskin, Roy Connell
and Arthur Lupton, members of
the Gulf county board of commis-
sioners, stated that from present,
indications the county would be
unable to provide funds for con-
tinued operation of the county
health unit and asked that the
city of Port St. Joe put up $90.0 as
its share of the $2700 operating
cost to finance the unit for an-
other year. The county would put
up $900 and the ether $900 would
come from the city of Wewa-
''This is a very vital work,"
"-6aid Mr Connell, acting as spokes-
man for the group, "and anyone
looking over the work done by
the health unit and- seeing the hu-
man suffering that has been al-
leviated would not have a bit of
hesitancy in recommending con-
tinuation of the unit. The county
cannot raise .the money, as it
would require the levying of a 2
mill assessment, and we are. en-
deavoring, in fact, we :are forced,
to cut down,on everyiihin. q oir-
der to hold down the mileage."
In answer to the' appeal for $900'
from the city, Commissioner B. W.
Eels said: ^We're so deep in debt
we can't give you an answer now.
We'll have to look over 'our bud-
get and see how we stand. You
know the city of Port St. Joe is
carrying a bigger load than the
"We can probably definitely let
youi know what action we will be
able to take before you make up
the county budget in August," said
Mayor J. L. Srarlt.
The county commissioners ex-
.pressed their thanks and stated
they hoped the answer would be
favorable on the part of the city,
as. they did not, want to see the
work of the health unit stopped.
The matter of dividing the city
gasoline business between gas sta-
tions of the city was brought up
and commissioner B. A. Pridgeon
said he believed the smaller sta-
tions would not care to carry the
WVVPA account, as it ran $75 to $80

With 70 Members
At the first regularly scheduled
meeting of the Port St. Joe Town-
send club held last Friday evening
in the Legion hut, by unanimous
vote of members present The Star,
Port St. Joe's home town newspa-
per, was designated as the official
paper of the local Townsend club.
In connection with this the pub-
lisher of The Star is offering sub-
scriptions to members of the club
at half the usual price. In other
words, members of the Townsend
club may secure a year's subscrip-
tion to The Star for $1 instead of
the uusal price of $2.
The publisher of The Star, who
is 100 per cent behind, the Town-
send' movement, feels that this is'
the best method of keeping mem-
bers informed of activities of the
local organization and, realizing
that all are not ?m a position to
pay $2 per year for the paper,
made the reduction In the regular

he would like to.
Since taxes like these are almost invisible,
it's a doggone hard proposition to make
them a burning issue when election time
rolls around. But with the burden constantly
mounting, the average citizen is beginning to
reach the stage where he wishes devoutly
that not only would the collector become a
little more "invisible," but some of the taxes
themselves would also do the vanishing act.
Who has not marveled at the rainbow?
Who has not swallowed for a while at least
the age-old fable about the pot of gold that
is to be found where the rainbow comes
down? That story is not entirely bunk, be-
cause no one can contact a rainbow. Like
so many other things, the beauty of the rain-
bow demands a certain amount of distance.
The "promise" that the rainbow offers is
a. beautiful allegory. It means sunshine after
rain; happiness seen through tears; the
warning reaction that the mind always re-
ceives from the colors of the spectrum.
I'firmly believe in the promise of the rain-
bow-just as I believe in good fairies.-Jay

THE RIGHT TO BITE
It is a tradition of long standing that one
bite does not condemn the dog that does the
biting. This canine privilege of trying his
teeth may almost be considered imbedded in
the common law.
Its standing has been confirmed again by
the senate of New York state. That body
turned down a bill which would make dog
owners liable for damages if the dog should
bite but once.
It is no compliment to the canine race to
speak of a "dog's life." Yet some men may
enky dogs their privileges. Sometimes it
seems too bad that a man may not be al-
lowed one bite, possibly at the tax collector's
ankles, before he is accused of criminal or
unsocial tendencies. But in this matter, by
ruling of tradition and the New York senate,
the dogs have the best pf it.-Philadelphia

As I stood on a busy street cor-
ner in Indianapolis recently. I saw
a street car rumble into the cen-
ter of the interse-lon to stop and
block traffic in every direction be-
cause the trolley had slipped off.
Frantically the crossing policeman
blew his whistle, waved his arms;
motorists, each ir~ent on his own
affairs, tried to squeeze past, the
result of which was a hopeless
jam. The motorman, powerless to
move his car, left his seat and,
running to the back, connected the
trolley. The car lumbered on and
in a few moments the congestion
wa'I ironed out.
.- And as I watched that common-

struck me that maybe this country
of ours was all snar!ea up because
we, too. were off our trolley.
Surely there' is a force, an intel-

us right and solve our difficulties
if we could just contact it!

but I do believe in rod, and some-
how I feel that if we as a nation

Licenses May Be Obtained From
County Judge ana Must Be
Carried On Person
Prompted by statewide discus-
sion of the new auto driver's li-
cense enactment, Asher Frank,
director of the state safety coun-
cil, has released complete infor-
mation on the subject.
Frank stated that while the law
goes into effect August 1, the
deadline for obtaining licenses
will not be reached until October
1. "Between those dates," he said,
"you must secure an application
blank from your county judge and
fill it in, stating that you. have
driven a car one year or more
without an accident; that you
have not been convicted of using
a vehicle, to violate any law; that
you are of sound mind, not a user
of narcotics and that your sight
and hearing are good; and finally,
that you know the traffic laws of
He added that every license ap-
plication must be notarized. "This
will be done by the county judge
without cost to the applicant,"
Frank said. From the time the li-
cense is obtained, it must be car-
ried by the driver at all times
when he is operating a vehicle.
Licenses will expire October 1 of
Those who secure licenses after
October 1 must pass a physical
and mental test. Persons with
poor eyesight which can be cor-
rected by glasses will not be
barred, provided the correction is
made. The 50-cent fee will apply
to everyone who drives a car, un-
less he is employee as a chauf-
feur or driver, in which case the
applicant must be 21 years old
and pay $1.
Otherwise, anyone over 18 may
secure a license. Persons between
the ages of 16 and 18 may obtain
licenses only when voucried for
by parent or guardian. Learner's
permits will be issued to persons
between 14 and 16 when they are
vouched for, but such persons
must be accompanied by parent,
guardian or chauffeur whenever
driving. If a person is' over 18 and
\vants, to learn to, drive, he can se-

Frank emphasize( the fact that
the law makes it mandatory,. upon

BROTHER OF MRS. DRAKE
DIES IN VALDOSTA, GA
Henry Reed, 55, brother of Mrs.
H. A. Drake, died Saturday after-
noon at Valdosta, Ga., and was
buried Monday in Hosford, Fla.
Mr Reed was a former resident of
Port St. Joe, having left this city
about 18 years ago. He is sur-
vived by his widow and five chil-
dren. Mr. and Mrs. Drake were at
his bedside when he died, having
been called to Valdosta Saturday.

Miss Virginia Stoutamire and

the gas business at one time. I
bought out a station, ran it for
two weeks, and lost $2, and then
I quit. It cost me a dollar a week
to run that station."
The commissioners decided to
pro rata the gasoline sales be-
tween the city's stations and to
alternate the WPA business be-
tween the Texaco station and the
St. Joe Motor company.
Selwyn Chalker, Gulf county
sanitary officer, asked that the
commission do something about
the unsanitary septic tanks and
open privies in the interest of city
Commissioner Eells suggested
that such violators of the sanitary
laws be brought before the city
judge and see if something could
be worked out.
Mr. Chalker suggested that he
see these people and give them
notice to appear in city court, as
the majority of them were able to
connect with the city's sewer sys-
tem but just wouldn't do it until
It was agreed by the commis-
sioners that this seemed the
proper manner to handle the mat-
ter, and if, after appearing in
court. nothing is cone within a
