TIMBER IS PROTECTED
BY NEW LEGISLATION

Residents of Gulf county in
looking around ror their winter
supply of wood, had better be
careful, as the 1939 legislature
passed an act designed to protect
timber and wood, and it will be
illegal to remove it from the land
of another person without consent
of the owner. The act became a
law without the signature of Gov-
ernor Cone.
The law states that whosoever
cuts or removes a tree or part
tlh'ereof from the land of another,
with the intention of converting
same to their own use, in any
way, shall be guilty of larceny,
punishable by imprisonment in
the state prison for a period not
exceeding two years, or by a fine
not exceeding $500.
It is provided that the law shall
not apply to municipal or private
utilities, who find it necessary to
trim or cut trees in order to
maintain service.

story, which traces the develop-
ment of the tender romance up to
their arrival in New York. Here
they decide to separate for six
months while Boyer seeks work.
They give up luxurious prospects
of their forthcoming marriages to
prove themselves worthy of the
great love that has smitten them.
The sacrifices each goes thru,
coupled with an ill-fated accident
to the girl on the day of their
long-awaited reunion, provide ab-
sorbing dramatic moments. Believ-
'ing she has been lamed, and torn
between her love and what she
how considers her duty, the
young woman deliberately disap-
pears without permitting Boyer to
know of her plight-a plight that
would make her a burden, not a
wife.
The story reaches a novel end-
ing, preceded by a refreshing se-
ries of dramatic conflicts which
heightens the entertainment of
the picture.
Two tuneful songs, "Sing, My
SHeart" and "Wishing," are sung
by Miss Dunne. Appearing in sup-
port of the stars are Maria Ous-
penskaya, Lee Bowman, Astrid
jAllwyn and Maurice Moscovich.

On Barge Service

Extension of Barge Line to Come
Up Again At Next Ses-
sion of Congress

A house subcommittee, after
hearing three witnesses last Fri-
day, continued until the next ses-
sion of congress its consideration
of a bill by Representative Mil-
lard Caldwell of Florida to extend
federal barge service from Mobile
to Carrabelle.
Caldwell told the subcommittee
the extension would serve Pensa-
cola, Fort Walton, Valparaiso,
Destin, Port Washington, West
Bay. Panama City and intermedi-
ate points.
"This country has developed ex-
tensively in the last ten years,"
he said. "Extension of the barge
service would give it the advant-
age of economical transportation."
The Inland Waterways corpora-
tion, he said, had declared it had
sufficient equipment to establish
the service.
L. E. Thornton, consulting en-
gineer from Pensacola,. testified
at the Washington hearing that
extension of service from Mobile
to Pensacola was necessary to
"give us parity of water rates
with other Gulf ports." And the
same thing applies to Port St. Joe.

GULF COUNTY FACTS ARE NOT FACTS
In last week's issue of our esteemed con-
temporary, The'Sentinel, under the heading
"Gulf County Facts," appeared these two
"facts":

Gulf county is the only county in the
South in which a town west of the cen-
tral standard time line has eastern stan-
dard time.
Much of Port St. Joe is below sea
level. Erosion and man's occupation will
eventually build the land higher, al-
though it will take at least 50 years to
build as high as three feet above sea
level.


.A FAITHFUL AGENCY PASSES
On July 1 there passed out of existence
one of the oldest and most' faithful govern-
ment agencies, the Lighthouse Service.
Established in 1789 by the first congress
of the United States, the Lighthouse Service
was operated by the treasury department for
the first century of its existence, and then
its operation was passed .to the department
of commerce. During all these years the serv-
ice-retained its name, but on July 1 the serv-
ice was consolidated with the Coast Guard,
and henceforth it will be their duty to keep
the lights along the coast burning. Incident-
aly the Coast Guard was organized about one
year after the Lighthouse Service.
No agencies have rendered greater service
to the seafaring men than the Lighthouse
Service and the Coast Guard, and that serv-
ice has been given under the most dangerous
conditions. They never were fair weather
boys, for during fair weather their duties
were almost routine, but when the waves
dashed high and the rains came in sheets,
that's when the lighthouses were havens of
refuge and the Coast Guard went into action'.
Their deeds of heroism would fill many
Books, but seldom did because they only
looked upon such events'as being in line of
duty.
The two services are now consolidated,
and while many of the old lighthouse men
regret that their agency will lose its identity,
they can look back to over a century of faith-
ful service to their seafaring brothers.-Flor-

a town west of the central standard time line

Such "facts" are decidedly misleading to
those readers who are not acquainted with
the real facts, particularly the one about
riuhli of Port St. Joe being below sea level.
A statement such as this might be the cause
of preventing new businesses or new resi-
dents from coming here, as they might be
fearful of the city being inundated by the
sea during times of storm.
The Star has a number of times published
a denial of the old story that the ancient city
of St. Joseph was completely wiped out by
a tidal wave; such a story having been circu-
ated some years ago by outside interests in
an endeavor to keep this city from building
up. The story stated that "not one brick
was left upon another, and all of the build-
ings were demolished." In reality, when the
old city'was practically depopulated by yel-
low fever, residents of Apalachicola bought
the buildings, tore them down and took them
by ship to Apalachicbla where they were re-
built, and some of them are standing in our
neighboring city today.
"Facts" sometimes are not facts, and more
care should be' taken in disseminating such
"facts" to a public which has been educated
to believe that everything published in a
newspaper is the truth.

Speaking of rackets, two of the biggest
today are the auto horn and the motorcycle.

If none but this innovation develops from

to stage the big show will be well spent.

Too Late to Classify
By RUSSELL KAY


Well, the political crystal gazers
are at it again and gubernatorial
dope :sheets are beginning to cir-
culate in ever increasing number.
Simple souls, inclined to place
confidence in such prognostica-
tions, will find the following for-
mula helpful in forming an intel-
ligent opinion:
Take the names of all candi-
dates listed on the various sheets,
add a dozen or so of your own,
mix thoroughly as you slowly stir
in several tablespoonfuls of ba-
nana oil and a large gob of salt.
Permit the names to simmer in
your mind for awhile then season
with thinly sliced baloney ana
applesauce, garnish with the pat-
ter of the gum-shoe boys and Da-
flys, add a dash of street corner
blah and barber shop bosh. Then
you take a deep breath, hold your
nose. and make three guesses-
wait a minute or two, and if a
man answers, hang up, you've
probably got the wrong number.
But as folks seem to like guess-
ing games, and I don't know any
more about it than the next guy,
and probably not as much, I as-
sume it would be right and proper
for me to drag out a turban, don
a robe and add my contribution
to your mental delinquency.
Among those we find galloping
about the state taking a census
of well located stumps and look-
ing for platform planks are old
"Homestead Bill" Hodges, "Dan-
gerous Dan" Chappell, Burton
"Townsend" Schoepf, Fuller "Fer-
dinand" Warren, "Jovial Jerry"
Carter, Walter "Booster" Fraser,
Fred "Longshot" Touchton, G
Pierce Wood (if he could), and a
flock of others.
Again warning you that I don't
know anything about it, and your
guess is as good as mine, I simply
point out the fact that Tallahas-
see's Hodges knows his way about
and most of the answers, but he's
not as young as he used to be and
campaigning calls for a' stout
heart and lusty lungs. He lost by
a hair last time, and his hair is
thinner now than it was theh.
Miami's Dan Chappell has a lot


tertain 'em betterr than any other
candidate, but so did Jerry Car-
ter, and while they all called'-.him
Amigoo" they voted for somebody~
else.
Tampa's Burton Schoepf, witn
plenty of business experience but,
no political sense, has Dr. Town-
send's "blessing," which Cannon,
Andrews. Hendricks and several
others can testify is a nice hand
to 'draw to in anjr man's game. Op-
ponents will out-talk and out-box
him, but he'll stay on his feet, for
he's no pushover.
Jerry Carter, although talked of
as a gubernatorial candidate, will
probably run-for congress. If folks
had wanted Jerry for governor
they could have elected him last
time.
!Fred Touchton, the druggist's
"white hope," found at the' top of
one dope sheet,and at the bottom
of another, will find that "medi-
cine shows" don't draw cross
anymore, and that political salve
is harder to sell than the kine
they pass out in a store. If he
doesn't take a "run-out powder'
he'll need to take a lot of aspirin.
St. Augustine's Fraser, noui--
ished from the "Fountain or
Youth," has plenty of young ideas
and has a good record as a
"mayor." He'll appeal to the city
folks but will have to be sold in
the back woods.
G. Pierce Wood is a doubtful
starter. His pleasing personality,
ability and experience are offset
by a DuPont label, and the last
legislature messed him up to
where he would have to run as
handicapped as a guy with "Ball"
and chain.
Lex Green, frequently men-
tioned, would be a sap to run for
anything but re-election to 'con-
gress. A great campaigner, he'd
carry his own district and hola
his own in West Florida, but
South Florida would defeat him on
three counts-hat, tie and cross-
state canal.
Then there's Jess Parrish, Har-
old Colee. Spessard Holland, John
Martin, Mark Wilcox, B. F. Paty,
Francis Whitehair, Raleigh Pette-
way, V. P. Miller and a number
of others who should not be dis-
counted-any of 'em could upset
an applecart.
My guess is the customers will
prefer a young man, but not too


on the ball, but last time it turned. young, a business man rather than
out to be an eight ball with him a politician, and they'll want to
behind it. Don't discount him- hear more horse-sense and less
