Sewage Problem

Is Again Before

CITY CLERK INSTRUCTED TO
ISSUE LAST WARNING
TO VIOLATORS

The problem of overtaxed and
broken down sep-ic tanks again
poppedd up like a ghost at a wed-
ling feast at the meeting of the
board of city commissioners Tues-
lay night, and aater some discus-
3ion of the matter, Clerk M. P.
Tomlinson was instructed to write
all business houses and owners of
-esiderices who are not connected
'o the city's sewer mains and
whose septic tanks are inadequate,
warning them that if connection
is not made immediately to the
-ity sewer lines that they will be
hailed before the municipal judge
and fined. *
Numerous complaints have been
received by the commissioners in
-egard to several places in par-
ticular, and although several no-
'ices have been sent ,the of-
fenders. nothing has been donte.-r
Both Mayor 'J. L. Sharit .and
Commissioner B. W. Eells were of
the opinion that drastic measures
will be necessary unless the of-
fenders rectify existing conditions
immediately, as they are a men-
ace to the health of the commun-

As the deadline drewy near Thursday night of last week for
qualifying in the Democratic primaries, J. R. Hunter, clerk of
circuit court, was the busiest man in this neck of the woods,
as a number of candidates for various offices withheld qpali-
fying until the last minute, and offices for which there appar-
ently was to be no contest jumped into the limelight with
filing of papers by numerous candidates.
The biggest piece of news was the last-minute resignation

"BE NOT AFRAID!"

More than 2000 years ago, on a spring
morning, two women came to a tomb to take
itilthl.:r look at the place where the dead
l'1u-, their friend, had been buried
T; *hc tomb'.was. hewn fro mthle solid rock;
and before it was a great stone that had" re-
quired the streigth of many .;.'11 Ie to move.
Besides, it was sealed with the great seal of
the Roman government and soldiers of the
,Roman .emperor were on watch.
Yet, when the. women of faith looked, the
tomb was open and the Jesus they had seen
perish in agony on the cross between two
thieves, was not there.
Out of that experience came the hope of
the world, for they turned back homeward,
and on the road they met the risen Jesus.
His first words to them were:
"Be not afraid!"
That is the old, simple Easter story, which
has come down through the centuries-and
has lost none of its beautX_-pr its appeal to
humanity with the passing of time.
On the contrary, its meaning has grown,
until it has brought hope to untold millions,
and made vivid in the hearts of men and
women the assurance of the reality and
permanence of life, of the illusion of death.
"Be not afraid!" ; ....- *** ,.,
S- nday the memory of a promise, a tri-
iumph of life over death, will again be resur-
:rected.
Man has always had the hope of an after
life. The message of the risen Jesus ringing
Down through the centuries intensifies that
Jiope and renews faith.
No one is content to believe that he lives
this brief, moment, barely long enough to
come to realize the glory of life, only to go
out like the flame of a candle before the
wind of death.
Nor is it necessary to indulge such a
lugubrious belief-since that first Easter
Morn.
"Be not afraid!"
Sunday morning multitudes will greet the
rising sun with the shout, "He is risen!" and
hope and faith and assurance will be re-
kindled in hearts that have known doubt and
sorrow and despair
Vrom those places of assembly will go the
multitudes strengthened and encouraged for
another year of effort and achievement, or
maybe of pain and suffering lightened byI
hope in Him.
Whatever be the lot of the individual, be-
cause of the first simple ,Easter story, be-
cause of the wondrous manner in which its
truth' has permeated human souls, because
..oits promise for the future, every man or
woman hears within his consciousness the
Message that brings improvement in thought,
word *and deed--the message of that day long
past, but just as vital today-
"Be not afraid!"
For- .
"Tesus came and spake unto them, saying,
All power is given unto me in heaven andt
carth.
'"o ve therefore and teach all nations,
baptising them in the name of the Father
and of the Son and of the Hol-y t;host:;
"'l.'ic'c!chig;' them t observe alil tulings what-


SoC:ver I have commanded you; and lo, I am
vi. yvou alvnay even unto the end of the
wol ,!d. Amen." (Matthew XXVII :27-2)).
'ihat promise gives the world the same
hope this IastCr Sunday that it gave those;
faithful ones in I'alestine back two thousand
ye.'-s o. it is a message that has come
thtui)cring ldov,-n the ages to heal sad hearts
::, ive hiipe to those in darkness.

on our local barbers, but then, it would all
be for the good of the cause-and look at
the harvest they would reap at the conclu-
sion of the celebration!

SAVE THE OLD CEMETERY

The editor of The Star has visited the old
cemetery of St. Joseph several times and on
each occasion has found at least one car of
visitors, sometimes more, viewing this inter-
esting historical burial ground.
We have also noticed that the tombstones
are gradually being chipped away by souve-
nir hunters and that bricks from the ancient
crypts are disappearing.
Something should be done to prevent this
wanton destruction, and the best thing that
we can suggest is that the old cemetery be
fenced in, cleaned up and a caretaker ap-
pointed. This could be undertaken either by
the city, the chamber of commerce, the
woman's club or any other civic body. If
necessary, a small admission fee could be
f-harged visitors, thus paying for the initial
cost of fencing and cleaning up the plot of
ground and paying a caretaker.
This should be done immediately, for each
lIay sees an increase of visitors to this old
cemeteryy, alnd with the approaching Cen-
; nnial Celebration in December thousands of
lie curious will be desirous of viewing this
historic site.

public first went in for .the rab-
bit-egg idea., The greeting card
companies don't late, back that
far, sol we can't lay the blame on
them.
Recourse to encyclopedias, books
on mythology and poultry catalogs
is equally unsatisfactory. The only
point on which they can come to
terms is the probability that rab-
bits and eggs were first associ-
ated with the return of spring and
not with the Chiistian celebration
of Easter at all. The fact that
Easter and spring hit the same
high spot on the calendar seems
to have brought the two together.
Some hold that the Norsemen
can shoulder the liame with their
festival for the divinity of spring.
Ostara, later called Eastre, was
their word for it. They chose the
rabbit, which, incidentally, won
the toss with the guinea pig, as a
symbol of reprocuctivity. Eggs,
chosen for the same reason, got
their colors from the aurora bore-
alis-northern lights of the Norse-
men's lives.
I have also heard rumors of a
story bandied about which says
that the face of the moon turned
to the earth at Easter, shows the
full figure of a rabbit (I'm going
to check on that tonight). A
legend from Germany compares
the rabbit to Santa Claus and says
that the Easter bunny hides the
eggs as rewards for good children
and leaves a switch on the pillow
of the children who have been
had.
Another tall tale credited to the
Germans is that the Duchess Rosi-
lind von Lindenburg gave eggs.
dyed with the colors of spring, to
children who had befriended h'or.
The children found the nests hid-
din, for ,.poort, in the bushes ant
concluded that rabbits cavorting
in the neighborhood had laid then:
there.
This theme is the mo:t popular
oi all the histories ,og tIhe Easter
bunny. Back in the days when
chickens were first imported from
Asia, the hens had a natural p'n-
chant I'or hiding their eggs in the
bushes. children n were sent out
to hunt them, and apparently the
countryside was \well poputlaed
with rabbits, and the children
drew the obvious conclusion and
decided that the rabbits laid the
E' s.
With all the current indecision
in Port St. Joe and elsewhere as
'o which carl e first, the rabbit or
t'" egg, a' leading question con-
r'lning i',.-r! of them should

prodding mail bags .to estimate
the nation's revenues. Officials
explained the 18 per cent in-
crease was estimated after collec-
tors had counted and prodded the
unopened mail 'ags containing
tax returns. But after a more care-
ful accounting, th'e treasury rue-
fully announced the increase was
only 5.1 per cent.
There will be no more kicking
of mail bags, says the treasury.
No mention was made of the poor
taxpayer!

A "little business" man came to
the capital last week to speak his
mind on legislation regulating in-
dustry. He appeared as a witness
before a senate subcommittee
studying the Boran O'Mahoney
business licensing bill, and his' ar:
gument was noted by capitol cor-
respondents as one of the most
sincere, "homey" and enlighten-
ing they had heard. The witness,
James F. Ryland, Richmond, Va.,
manufacturer, told his audience:
"Business today is in the dog-
house. It is regulated and at-
tacked and interfered with. It is
taxed until there is no spirit to
expand, and little to continue.
. Go where you like, talk to thi
businessman on the. street, on the
trains, in the hotels, anywhere. I
tell you, he is TIRED. He is as-
suming a 'what's tire use' attitude.
Can prosperity and re-em-
ploynent return, to a country un-
der conditions of that kind? .
Of course, if it is the desire of
some to take the profit motive out
of business. I have nothing to
say, except in that way lies an
end to all expansion and enter-
prise, and we will look on Amer-
ica as finished. iut if that he
not the desire of a majority of
you gentlemen of the senate, for
heaveli's sake, give us some res-
'pite fro' ', Ertgulatory legislation
and let us put our people back
to work at the bes; wages we can
afford to pay them."
And only one member of the
committee of senators attended
#he hearing to listen to the wit-
ness!


out on its feet. Such a ruse might
also be used to change the sub-
ject from the race for United
States senator. k
This, however, might simn'ply be'
jumping from the frying pan into
the fire. When a man has an
opinion as to the origin of the
Easter bunny and the Easter fgu,?
it is no less terrvp t than his poli-,

cuirbent. Millard Caldwell, is op-
posed by Parkhill Mays of Monti-

point to Caldwell on his past
record.
Seven men are candidates for
the three state supreme court po-
sitions. D. Stuart Gillis' opposes
the incumbent, Rivers Buford, in
Criopl 1; Truman G. Futch. Elwyn
