VARIETY SHOW

FRIDAY NIGHT

PROGRAM AND TWO BANDS
PROVIDE INTERESTING
EVENINd

The Variety Show presented
last Friday night in the high
school auditorium under the di-
rection of Dan Farnier, bandmas-
ter, was greatly enjoyed by a large
audience. The auditorium was
filled with Port St. Joe patrons
and many out-of-town guests.
Little Joe Wells, master of
ceremonies, gave the welcome ad-
dress. and the curtain rose on an
attractive stage setting of minia-
ture Christmas trees. The back-
drop was decorated in green foli-
age, and placed directly in the
center, near the top, was a beau-
tiful Christmas wreath with a
lighted, candle.
The combined bands of Port St.
Joe and Wewahitchka were. seated
on the stage and played "March
Majestic." Miss Ann Davies sang
very beautifully "Indian Love
Call," accompanied at the piano by
Mr. Farmer, following which the
band played "Waltz Vera." Miss
Adelaide Hardy, in her own Inimit-
able way, sang two selections from
the "Merry Wido w" opera. "Villa
Love Song" and 'Mery Widow
Waltz"; Mrs. Laneta Davis' was
her accompanist. '
Inle FIerrell gave 'a' reading,
"Little Baby Brother," and little
Jean Shirley of' WeMli fitclika gave
a "tap" number. Following this,
little Geraldine Parker sang, as
only Geraldine can,, "You Can't
Stop Me From Drdaming," with
Mrs. Laneta Davis, accompanist.
Our Port St. .oe "Tappers,"
Alice Gibson, Dorothy Trawick,
Marigene Smith and Lunette Ham-
mock, came on the stage and gave
an ensemble dance. Roy Gibson,
Carlyle Matthews and William
Trawick, three members of our
own band, rendered,,'Dinah" in a
clarinet trio. Following this num-
ber, Reba Strickland and Mary
Lee Davis went through their rou-
tine of acrobatic stunts, to the de-
light of the audience. The band
rendered "Waltz Lillian," followed
by an impersonation of an "Ala-
bam' Niggah" by little Billy Shir-

JUDGE CHAFIN IS
CLEARED BY JURY

A circuit, court jury in session
at Wewahitchka, Wednesday ac-
'luitted M. H. Chafin, former Gulf
county judge, of charges growing
out of an alleged shortage of $2,-
'37.50 in fishing license funds.
Chafin was suspended from of-
fice by Governor Fred P. Cone on
the report of state auditors. R. Al-

tive in the 1937 legislature, was
named to succeed him and now
holds the office.
The suspension order will come
before the 1939 session of the
state senate for confirmation or
rejection.

Pridgeon Acts As Mayor In
Absence of Sharit; Com-
plaints Made,Against Thea-
ter As Menace to Health

Many matters came before the
city commissioner at their meet-
ing Tuesday night for discussion
and action. Commissioner Ber-
nard Pridgeon was named acting
mayor in the absence of Mayor J.
L. Sharit, who is in Washington
on business.
B. W. Eells appeared to ask why
the grading crew had been taken
from the job of grading Palm
Boulevard and side streets in the
Bay Ridge section, and was in-
formed that it was necessary to
fix a number of other thorough-
fares of greater importance to the
city as a whole in the short tim.
that the tractor and grader loaned
to the city by the state road de-
partment would be here.
T. E. Prid'geon appeared before
the board requesting a license to
operate marble boards and skill
games in the city, and this brought
up a discussion on the so-called
"gambling jars."- Further details
on these two matters will be
found in another column on this
page.

for the city to take some action
in regard to the open-air theater.
However, the consensus of opinion
was that it would be too costly
for the city to carry the matter to

sary to close the show.
P. C. Coombs of Apalachicola,
district manager for the Florida
Power Corporation, and Joe Gloek-
ler, local representative of the
corporation, were present, stating
that they had heard that an appli-
cation was to be made at the
meeting by other parties for a
franchise for distribution of elec-

application was made.
First reading of an ordinance
was heard authorizing the city en-

OPPOSE CENTRALIZED CONSERVATION
KExecutives of pulp and paper mills in the
South, during their two-day conference ii
Jaclksonville, added their voice to the strong
opposition that is being expressed to bills be-
iore congress proposing a federal department
of conservation that would make it possible
to change the administration of the country's
forest service, says the Florida Times-Union
in doing- so they joined all the major farm
organizations in the United States, the wild-
life interests, the American Forestry Associa-
tion, the Society of American Foresters, the
Association of State Foresters, and, others
which have vigorously protested against the
proposed plans.
Protests that already have been made to
congress have pointed out that the integrity
and unit of the whole agriculturall policy
and program is menaced: that the adminis-
tration of the national forests, for example,
is in chief measure an agricultural function,
because it involves raising successive crops
of trees which, as sicentists well know, in-
volves the same basic iiu1',gical principles as
the i ,;-:;; of any other crop.. Thlat the same
thing is true of the administration of the
'range resource of the national forests, and
that the soil conservation service job is
wholly agricultural.
For these reasons the paper and pulp mill
executives adopted resolutions requesting
congressional representatives of the southern
states to oppose and prevent any and all legis-
lation that would tend to centralize conser-
vation activities in any one federal depart-
ment, as a renamed department of the in-
terior.
Opponents of the proposed plan unques-
tionably are taking a sensible attitude in
raising strenuous objections to the program
on the ground that it may retard and handi-
cap the conservation efforts that have been
making notable headway during the last dec-
ade or more. Under the direction of the de-
partment of agriculture, the program of for-
estry propagation and conservation has been
brought up to a well-established and ef-
ficiently functioning basis. Anything that
might have the effect of upsetting the effec-
tiveness of this program should be discarded.
One of the prime factors in the success of
this program has been the work of the scien-
tists engaged in the far-reaching endeavors.
These men, most of them, are under the civil
service and are in a position to make a career
of what they are doing. Their incentive has
been one of ambition to serve and to achieve,
with the knowledge that they are in life-time
positions and will be provided for in their old
age.
This incentive obviously would be de-
stroyed if the program were reorganized, and
hhe conservation service thrown open to the
spoils system. Then it would resolve itself
into. the baleful predicament of political
-preferment. Those with political pull would
-get the jobs as bureau chiefs, regardless of
:their fitness as to scientific qualifications.
1Citizeias deserve something better than' a
-progra.m of that nature governing the future
,of their great natural resources of forests,
soils, wildlife and things of that sort. Already
there is too much of the political spoils sys-

The collection of boners is printed in "High

pupils' knowledge of pronunciation and word
usage was tested with a list of words which
They were to use in sentences. All the words
e are in common newspaper usage, and were:
1 Revere, deficit, err, formidable, corps, era,
bade, decade, martyr, rout, epitome, clique,
- banquet, admirable, harass, grimace and anti.
t The partial results, as listed in "H-igh
P points were:
'I'he girl's homework was correct with
the exception of one err in her first prob-
lem.
Thie teacher said that err meant to for-
give and was very rarely used.
S The little boy was formidable of the

In a morgue one will find many corps.
His bade was very high, but it did not

nation, would produce bonerss" of a like na-
ture, and almost daily we see lists like the
above printed in the newspapers.
Somewhere along the line the new stream-
lined system of rudinientary education has
broken down. The shame is a common one
that high schools the country over turn out
graduates far more incompetent to spell and
pronounce and use common words than the
one-room school houses did when the Tenth
Reader was the end of local education.

Leading Statistician States
Latest Facts On This
Serious Situation
"Leading tuberculosis authorities
call tuberculosis the foe of youth,"
says Miss Jessamine S. Whitney,
statistician of the National Tuber-
culosis, "but I go even further and
call it the foe of girls and young
women. Why? Because the deaths
from tuberculosis among them are
one and one-half times as many as
those among their brothers of the
same age."
The death rate from tuberculosis
has been cut to less than one-third
of what it was thirty years ago
when it was the leading cause of
death. Yet when we analyze these
deaths we find that tuberculosis is
still the leading cause of death for
men and women between 15 and 45
years of age and we also find that
among young women between 15
and 30 one in every four deaths is
from this highly contagious disease.
Miss Whitney in answering wohy
tuberculosis is twice as prevalent
among young women as among
young men says, "No on? knows.
Today it is an oGtstanii"g mystery
in public health."
In an attempt to asove this mys-
tery the National Tuberculosis As-
sociation made a careful study of
the life histories ot al! girls between
15 and 25 who died from tubercu-


losis in a single year in Detroit ana
in New York City. Industrialization
did not affect their health because
35 per cent had never been em-
ployed outside their homes and 29
per cent had been employed less
than a year. Dieting, clothing habits,
their educational levels were al
discarded as clues to the mystery.
A recent study of one of the New
York City tuberculosis clinics did
sjow, however, that the young wo-
men who lived in homes where
there was a person sick with tuber-
culosis were very remiss in getting
proper examination of themselves.
"Every case of tuberculosis
comes from another," Miss Whitney
further says.
GRE I GS "We know
that our chief
concern for
the present,
therefore, is

we can catch the disease early we
can nearly always cure it. Do this,"
concludes Miss Whitney, and we
tuberculosis statisticians can all go
out ot I;:si:eas. This public health
mystery w-i:l .ave solved itself."

Sweethearts' Reunion
Under Mistletoe Twig

ETTY JANE dressed careful-
ly, wondering if college had
changed Bill much. It was
grand having him home for the hol-
idays. The doorbell rang.
"Christmas gift," cried Bill, hand-
ing her a gayly-wrapped package,
and taking her in his arms. Betty
Jane drew back. She wasn't sure
she liked this Bill so well-he
seemed so sure of himself. She re-
membered Bill as humble, wooing
for her favors.
"Come say hello to the folks,"
Betty Jane invited, "and see the
tree and smell turkey."
They went, hand in hand. "I sup-
pose you've met a lot of girls at col-
lege," she hazarded. "Tell me about
them."
"Well, there's just one I'm really
crazy about," Bill answered. "All
the fellows think she's swell. Her
picture's on my dresser, and when-
ever I'm in doubt, I talk things over
with -her."
"How grand," said Betty Jane in
a tight little voice. They came to
the mistletoe. How different from
last year, when she was just learn-
ing to love him!
"I have her picture on my watch,
too," Bill went on, his eyes twink-
ling brighter than the silver star
atop the tree.
"You used to carry mine there,"
Betty Jane observed, and managed
somehow to laugh lightly.
"And still do," said Bill, exhibit-
ing it. "All the fellows are jealous
of the girl I left behind me. There
isn't a girl in all the world, let alone
college, like you, Betty Jane. And
by the way, don't you know that a
pretty girl should always stop when
she comes to mistletoe?"-Helen
Waterman.

BACON AND EGGS, TOAST AND

What's your breakfast problem?
Husband in a hurry and perhaps
]lot too good tempered if, he's kept
waiting? Children who need a
nourishing meal before school but
aren't always willing to eat it?
Then solve the problem by mak-

,or though table appliances are
iine to own at any time, they're
twice as important at breakfast.
While coffee bubbles in the elec-
tric percolator, the children can
make golden brown toast at the
table, using the electric toaster.
Bacon, fried eggs or pancakes can
be made right at the table with
your electric 'grill. It eliminates
mother's early morning rush!
Hot waffles for breakfast can be
a daily treat if there is an electric
waffle iron. The new irons elimi-
nate all the old-time fuss and in-
sure golden, well-cooked waffles.
All of these electrical gadgets,
and many more, are on display at
the Gulf Hardware & Supply Co.
in their new location next Thomp-
son's Bakery on Third avenue.
If it isn't possible to have all of
these conveniences, your family's
favorite breakfast menus will tell
you which ones should be the most
useful in. your home.
And while you're looking these
over at the Gulf Hardware, you
might look at their line of toys,
knives, coaster wagons and other
items for Christmas.

First Christmas Carol
When Christ Was Born

HRISTMAS is the time when
men are drawn together in a
great unity. Much of this may
be attributed to our response to fa-
miliar songs, sung year after year
to commemorate the advent of a
little Child on earth. The first
Christmas carol ever heard, we like
to believe, came over the field of
Bethlehem, when Christ v.as born-
"Glory be to God cn hiCh, and on
earth, peace, good will toward
men."
But it was 1,200 years lator that
St. Francis of Assisi and his broth-
ers took up the singing in public of
carols at Christmas to combat the
unbelief of their time. With lighted
tapers they went about the streets of
the small Italian village pouring out
their hearts in songs of praise. In
the 800 years sincehen the singing
of Christmas carols has gone around
the world. Wherever Christianity is
known carol singing follows.
The simple vision of a mother
lulling her babe to sleep gives
Christmas music its strength. Some
sing as a tribute to their religious
faith, others as a custom they en-
joy. But whatever the reason, the
important thing is that more and
more people do it. From such wide-
ly different sources as churches,
theaters, schools, clubs, radio sta-
tions, come the words of "Away in
a Manger," "Silent Night," "Joy to
the World," "Little Tow'n of Bethle-
hem," "Hark the Herald Angels
Sing," and "Come All Ye Faithful,"
sung by soloists, choirs, choruses or
the voices of school children. So
each year new joy is expressed
through old channels. Frances
Grinstead.

CHRIISTMAS TRADITIONS

fF YOUR Christmas tree is a
l- balsam-and that is the love-
liest kind of all, both for appear-
ance and for fragrance-then
when you first light it a cheerful
old superstition urges a glance at
your shadow on the wall-if you
dare. Should it appear headless
you will not live to see another
Christmas. Then, later, when the
tree is burned, another tradition
suggests keeping a partly burned
stick to ward off lightning.


Paint Brightens Toys .
In the basement or the attic many
of us will find old toys the children
have discarded. Christmas is al-
most here and much joy can be
brought into the lives of less fortu-
nate youngsters if we get out these
toys, give them a coat of gayly col-
ored enamel and distribute them
ourselves or turn them over to a
social agency to be handed out to
needy youngsters on St. Nick's day.

In England's Wassail Bowls
Brewed in England's Yuletide
wassail bowls are baked apples, hot
ale seasoned with spice, orange
juice and rind and whipped eggs.

Plan Christmas Dinner
Plan to prepare as much of the
meal as possible on the day prior to
Christmas so that the housewife can
enjoy the day with her family.

SANTA CLAUS EXISTED IN
THE PRE-CHRISTIAN ERA
Santa Claus, as a bearded and
benevolent pot-bellied k o b o 1 d,
seems to be much older than St.
Nicholas, the Christian bishop
whose name he has assumed.
Among the hundreds of statuettes
of pagan divinities dug up in the
great Roman temple district at
Trier are a number that are very
good portraits of the Christmas-
tide friend of children.
What the pre-Christian name of
this mythical personage may have
been nobody knows as yet, but
that he is a real Santa Claus any
child could tell you. With his
round cheeks, pudgy nose, long
beard and pointed cowl there is
hardly any mistaking" him.

Dave Maddox appeared upon the
scene and as a cornet solo played
our state song, "Suwanee River."
Ann Treadwell of Beacon Hill de-
lighted the audience with her tap
number, followed by another selec-
tion by the band, "March Slow
Trill." Little "Sissy" Williams
came on the stage and rendered
an accordian solo, "The Old Spin-
ning Wheel." Misses Adelaide
Hardy, Ann Davies and Vilura
Strauss delightfully sang the ever-
popular "Waltz You Saved For
Me" in a vocal trio, accompanied
by Mr. Farmer at the piano. Mr.
Farmer then presented an oddity,
a cornet solo with piano accom-
paniment by himself, which drew
heavy applause. The last number
on the program was a selection by
the band, the popular waltz, "I
Love You Truly."
Immediately following the pro-
gram, Bandmaster Oren Whitley
and 40 members of his Panama
City high school band gave a 30-


minute concert which was greatly
enjoyed.
Both bandmasters are to be
commended on their bands, as they
have been organized but a few
months and have made great prog-
ress in that time. Port St. Joe
should be especially proud of their
band and director, as this organi-
zation is the youngest one in the
district, and as Miss Jewell Pres-
nell, field supervisor, stated, "none
has made so much progress in the
length of time." So let our motto
be: "Boost your, band and it will
boost you."
