Expense Cuts I
IRINIMNR FIRM l


Abandon City Street Lights, and
Curtail WPA Projects Now
Underway-

Because the city of Apalachicola
.owes money and can't pay it, the
city commissioners have decide(
to reduce city operating expenses
by abandoning the use of overhead
city street lights, discontinuing
use of the police truck, and take
steps for curtailment of city WPA
projects now underway, including
one for $80.000 which employs 6:
persons.
It was .stated by city officials
that these drastic steps were
made necessary by the apathy ol
taxpayers, many of whom art
able to pay their taxes but refuse
'to do so.
Abondonment of- these public
services became effective on Au
--. ust 1.
Approximately $79,000 is owed
the city of Apalachicola In bace
taxes,- and as the city owes a con-
siderable amount-on back bills ol
various -sorts, the city commils
siioners feel that they should not
run up more bills, as it appears
there will be no money with which
to pay them.

d WILL STABILIZE CREDIT
e

SProtect Merchants -and Hell
1 Those Whose' Credit Hais
Been Impaited /


f For some time the business in
' terests of Port St. Joe and Gul
e county as a whole have felt the
need of stabilizing the credit
0 business, and now, through th<
Ss'forts of C. A. Tovey, it has be
come a concrete fact in formation
of the Gulf County Credit Bureau
with Mr. Tovey as manager.
"It is through the co-operatior
Sof the business and professional
interests of the county that the
credit bureau is now an accom
polished fact," said Mr. Tovey.
"As the credit bureau is a new
addition tto the business family
here, a brief explanation of its
usefulnesss might be timely. It is
the ,clearing house for credit
transActions 'within 'Its territory
There is a dual obligation for
this organization' to discharge,
with benefits to the community
as. a whole. First, by protecting
the merchants from adding ques-
tionable credit business to their
accounts, and second, by helping
those whose credit record has
become seriously impaired to re-
habilitate their record through
helpful advice.
"The credit bureau's watchword
is 'Helpful Service,' and through
this servicee' builds a stronger,
more prosperous community for
all to enjoy.
"Therefore," concluded Tovey,
"the establishment of a credit bu-
reau. in this section is one more
indication of the progress of our
community."
A. formal announcement of the
new institution will appear in The
Star next week.

WPA TO MAKE CUT
WPA officials have informed
congress they intend to cut about
11,000 administrative employes off
the rolls in the next two or three
months; 215 will be dropped in
Florida.

A small portion of this amount
has been paid to the city tax col-
lector, reducing the total some-
what. The largest single tax bill
Comes to $1100, while the smallest
is for the sum of two cents.
This action was deemed neces-
r sary by the board of city com-
missioners at this time due to the
fact that the city has a number
of bills overdue ana also must
meet interest and principal pay-
ments on bond issues.
A considerable total of taxes is
delinquent for 1938, but this can-
not be advertised nor suit filed at
this time.
Notice of filing of the suit, to-
gether with names of defendants,
will ;)e found on page six of this
issue of The Star.

NEAT PUBLICITY BOOKLET

We are in receipt of a neat publicity book-
:let, "Florida Sports, Recreation and Points of
Interest," from the office of our good friend
Commissioner of Agriculture Nathan Mayo.
The commissioner has put out some neat
.booklets in the past, but this 68-page bro-
.chure tops the list-it is indeed a work of art
from the printer's point of view. We under-
stand that several hundred thousand copies
will be distributed at the New York World's
Fair, which will give Florida a lot of pub-
ilicity.
The booklet is crammed with pictures from
all sections of the state, and Gulf county
rates two-one of the Constitutional Monu-
ment in this city and a view of the Dead
Lakes near Wewahitchka. The picture of the
monument was taken by the editor of The-
,,Star, and the scene on the Dead Lakes was
:snapped by T. W. Wilson of this city.
However, Editor Larry Evans of the Gulf
County Breeze does :not.agree with us about
this little bixokle-L. Sez he:.:'!t is full of.,good,
*picture: ..f l.;ovel) ladies in swimming suits,
bathing beaches, recreational points, fishing,
yachtifig, surf-boating, etc. There are hun-
dreds of pictures of all points in Florida-
but as far as we have been able to ascertain
there is no picture of any sort of Gulf county
in it. That's funny. Wonder why? Doesn't
the same Gulf blow on us here that blows at
Tampa, St. Petersburg, Panama City and
Pensacola? Don't we have many beautiful
girls and beautiful waters and sporting and
vacation country? Whose fault is it that Gulf
county is left out of this good publicity for
Florida? Is it the commissioners, or the of-
ficials or the citizens?"
Looks like the pictures of those pretty gals
might have distracted your attention, Editor
Evans, particularly that cutie on the cover
and the three on page four. Perhaps you
didn't get past those first few pages to dis-
cover that Gulf county IS represented. We
think Gulf county rated pretty high-getting
two pictures-.for Bay, Franklin and Jackson
.counties rated but one each, while we have
been unable to find any. pertaining to neigh-
boring Calhoun county.

The Florida State Beverage Department
reports we don't know how many thousands
of gallons of moonshine liquor were confis-
cated during the first six months of 1939. We
never have been in favor of digging canals
in Florida, but it begins to look like the state
does need better drainage.

We've heard a ot of talk about "contented
cows." Wonder if they're still contented af-
ter their hind quarters have come in contact
with an automobile?

DEBT THREATENS DEMOCRACY
In a thought-provoking article in Harper's,
Roy Helton argues tellingly that debt threat-
ens democracy. And he has many a precedent
with which to prove his case.
"What is it that gave Italy back to an ab-
solute ruler?" asks Helton. "Twenty-seven
billion dollars of war borrowings on top of
an already heavy debt structure were more
than her government could handle as a de-
mocracy. What made Hitler the absolute ruler
of Germany? What but national despair un-
der the immense load of debt that had been
saddled upon Germany by the Allies, creat-
ing a burden which the republic could not
carry? A master had to appear in Russia, too,
because of debt.
"More than anything that can ever face us
as a nation, this problem deserves the united
intelligence of all parties and all men."
What has happened abroad can happen
here And no one can miss the ominous par-
allel that exists between the course toward
dictatorship taken by the European totali-
tarian states and the course we are so rapidly
pursuing ourselves. A staggering debt made
essential the artificial blocked-mark system
'of Germany-a staggering debt could make
necessary a "blocked-dollar" system here. A
sharp rise in a nation's debt makes inevitable
more and 'more political control over the af-
fairs of its citizens-and that means eventual
dictatorship:
Helton observes that it is not yet too late
-that we can still save ourselves as a de-
mocracy by drawing in our belts, facing our
issues squarely and going to work to cut
down the debt. But we cannot long delay the
time for doing that-if we are to. retain the
rights and liberties of democracy for which
our forefathers fought.

NEW COAL TAR VITAMIN
!I'oWhfat is:hailed, as.one of the greatest 'scien-
tific feats of recent years is the discovery of:
a process for making the important vitamin
K from coal tar. This vitamin was unknown
until about six years ago, when it was dis-
covered by a Danish scientist. Its life-saving
,values have been demonstrated by numerous
'physicians within the last two years.
One of the most important properties of
this vitamin is that of stopping internal bleed-
ing, and it is, therefore, highly beneficial af-
ter operations or hemorrhages from other
causes. Many persons have a deficiency of
prothombin, the substance which clots the
blood, and this substance is supplied by use
of the vitamin.
The new artificial vitamin is surprising to
scientific men, because it is four times as
powerful as the natural one. The new process
insures ah ample supply of the vitamin, which
previously had been very difficult to extract
from natural substances, and it will be the
means of saving many thousands of lives
each year.

Concensus of opinion is that the "knock"
given Vice-President Garner by C. O. Lewis
is a boost toward the presidency. Which
seems to verify the old saying that "Every
knock is a boost."

Darwin claims that man descended from a
monkey. If that's correct, we know a lot of
people who ought to go out and find a mon-
key and apologize.

Trying to tell all the news in a letter to
distant friends and relatives is quite a job.
Why not send them The Star-it will be a
weekly "letter from home."

We saw a woman up at the Dead Lakes
last Saturday who was afraid to put a worm
on ia fish hook, and yet she was married to
one.

Too Late to Classify
By RUSSELL KAY


As might be expected, I have
received five letters since the
publication of my last week's
column, solemnly or vitriolically
informing me that I don't know
what I'm talking' about, in spite of
the fact that twice in the said col-
umn I explained in language that
I thought clear the fact that I
didn't claim to KNOW any more
than the 'rext guy, and probably'
not as much, ana that the other
fellow's guess was as good as
mine.
If any of these letters agreed
as to the standing or importance
of any one candidate I might feel
that perhaps my personal views
as advanced in the column were
indeed screwy, but believe it or
not, each of my helpful critic=
contended that a different man
was the "Number One" contender,
pointing' out how much they had
on the ball and how much all the
other aspirants lacked.
All of which seems to indicate
a wide divergence of opinion and
promises an interesting campaign
when the melee really gets under
way.
I have also been informed thac
I failed to even mention a num-
ber of men who are potential can-
didates. and I probably did. Yot,
see, I was trying' to write a col-
umn, not compile a state diree-
tory or an unabridged edition of
"Who's Who" among guberna-
torial prospects.
Among those called to my at-
tention as probable entries in the
race that I had failed to mention
are Arthur Hale, chairman of the
state r o a d department; Hans
Walker of Ocala, who has already
i nouniced that he is a candidate
and is out beating the bushes, and
Walter W. Rose, state senator ana
prominent realtor of Orlando.
Arthur, while -he has given
some thought to the matter and
Being strongly urged by his
friends to enter tue race, is a long
way from making up his mind. If
-n does decide to enter, he will
run a good race and corner a lot
of votes other aspirants are
counting on, but as the records
.t.and, no 'Crown Prince" of any
administration has ever been able
to make the grade, and it is as-
sumed that if Hale were to run
he would certainly do so with the
full support and backing of the
present administration, and then
is a lot of divided opinion as to
whether this would be an asset
or a millstone.
Hans Walker I don't know much


about. I've met him a couple of
times and he has, a pleasanmi per-
sonality. His business record is
good and he places mach store'b'
the fact that he is an orphan, hav-
ing adopted the slogan "From the
Orphans' Home to the Governor's
Mansion." It is a long road to
., I "alone" and I'm inclined to
believe that he would be better
off if he did have a "mother rL
guide him."
Walter W. Rose is an able and
likeable chap, fair-haired boy of
the Florida Association of Real
Estate Boards, who has chamu-
pioned the oause- of the -property
owner against the grasping claw
of the tax-gatherer.
If he enters the race he will
probably be bunched with that
-norn that are just a' few lengths
behind the winners but going
strong. He might adopt as, his
campaign slogan "We Don't Need
No More Taxes On Real Estate."
But anyhow, from authoritative
sources, you can list him among
those who are "out' for the gov-
.ri.orship.
Among the most formidable
limelighters of the past week is
e'l(-tor Sessard Holland of Bar-
tow. While certain disgruntled
groups will turn their guns on
o he is an able and convincing
orator and about the only faults
that might be charged against him
is that he goes to church, doesn't
gamble, drink whiskey or chase
women. He is somewhat of a stiff
shirt and: will have to develop an
-earthy touch if tie hopes to click
with the masses.

Workers Dropped From
Rolls Advised to Seek
Private Employment

WPA Administrator Schroder
of Jacksonville, in a statement di-
rected to WPA workers dropped
from the rolls as a result of the
18 months ruling, urged them to
seek private employment as there
was little hope of their being re-
turned to WPA rolls.
Further curtailment of state
WPA activities occurred last week
with the closing of the state-wide
library project and the releasing
of some 400 persons. The project
was closed on orders from Wash-
ington relayed through Schroeder.
It is probable fhat other so-called
"white,. collar" projects will be dis-
continued with writers, musicians,
artists and nurses among those
affected'
