FEEL THAT WITH NE-W DO-
MESTIC RATE THEY SHOULD
ALSO RECEIVE CUT

nonth of a reduction in the do-
mestic electric service rate in
Port St. Joe from 11 to 10 eents
for the first 25 kilowatt hours,
6 cents for the next 50 kwh, 3
cents for the next 125, and 2 cents
p'er kwh. for all in excess of 200

business men of the city, feeling
that. as large users of electricity
they, too are entitled to a rate re-
duction, are circulating a petition
among the business houses asking
t'at the power corporation give
them a similar cut.
The petition, which up to yes-
terday had about a dozen names,
reads as follows:
'We, the undersigned business
men of Port St. Joe, FIa., feel
aunt. as your company has
granted a decreased rate to
uspers of electricity in the resi-
dential sections of the city. we
also should be entitled to a rate

tricity we, are now using.

on his record as an advocate of

GULF COUNTY DOES A GOOD JOB

Gulf county indicated an ability to do a
good job when necessity arises by its heavy
vote in Tuesday's election for Claude Pepper
for the United States senate and Millard
Caldwell for representative in congress.
There really should have been no question
in the minds of the voters when it came
right down to a choice between Pepper and
Dave Sholtz, for Claude Pepper has done all
in his power during his brief term in office
to aid Gulf county in every way possible and
never turned a deaf ear to our requests, no
matter how trivial they may have seemed.
He conducted his campaign in a clean,
straightforward, above-the-board manner and
at no time resorted to unfair tactics. All his
claims and arguments were based on facts
and figures and he never tried to cloud the
issues.
The publisher of The Star is indeed grati-
fied that Mr. Pepper has been returned, to
office in the first primary, though we felt
that the race would be carried over and
would be,:between Pepper and Sholtz. Which
merely goes to show that even publishers
can sometimes make mistakes.
With this county showing such a strong
vote for both Pepper and Caldwell, we are
now, more so than before, in a position to
ask for favors and get them, and if Gulf
county continues, from election to election, to
vote as a unit, we will soon become a political
power to be reckoned with, not only in this
district but in the entire state.

EYES OF SOUTH ON PORT ST. JOE

(Guest Editorial by Emmett G. Sheppard)
The eyes of the South are on Port St. Joe
and West Florida as evidenced by the large
amount of publicity being given this area by
the large amount of publicity being given
the press and radio.
On a recent visit to Georgia and Alabama
the writer found a growing interest in the
natural and potential resources of this im-
mediate vicinity. On numerous occasions he
was plied with questions as to the prospects
of a home along the shores of the Gulf of
Mexico, particularly near Port St. Joe. Not
a few times did he read in both daily and
weekly papers articles dealing with the paper
mill and the possibility of other developments
here.
Practically all who spoke of Port St. Joe
ended their conversation with: "I wish I
could go there-I've heard so much about it."

Election day is usually the first Tuesday
after the first Monday of the month. The
first Wednesday after the first Tuesday
should be reserved for the voters to tell the
successful candidates how to be good office-
holders.

Gulf county's automobile license plate key
number is 66, showing its rank in the state's
n--ulation as of 1935. Watch it climb next
year.

A lot of voters who cast their ballot for
the losing man are now telling the winner
how hard they worked for him.


A COMPLETE ENDORSEMENT

The overwhelming votte which sent Cla
Pepper back to the United States senate
to his first full term in that office is not o
a victory for the Roosevelt administral
but is a complete endorsement ty the pei
of Florida of all the principles involved in
"New Deal" and the Democratic platform
The great plurality given Pepper me
that the nitjority of Floridians are in full
cord to those measures now under fire
Washington. It further means that Sena
Pepper will carry out his promise to back
the president in his fight for reorgani2
the government and for the wage-hour
which, incidentally, was incorporated in
Democratic platform and was overwhe
ingly voted for two years ago by forty
states of the Union.
The "turn-coats" referred to by Sena
Pepper in his campaign for re-election-tl
who supported the Democratic platform
then turned against it for apparently
known reasons-should recognize the 1
that the voter still cannot be ruled by ex
gerated remarks as to the future of our
tion.
The endorsement given Roosevelt and
New Deal in Tuesday's primary should
heeded by Senator Pepper's colleagues b
in the senate and house.


THE SPENDING PROGRAM

It is claimed by administration advise
that the national debt can be very quic
liquidated when our national income
reached 80 90 or 100 billion dollars a ye
says Millard Caldwell in his "Washing
News Letter." If a dollar that is forced i,
circulation through a spending progr
passes through the hands of different peo
in the course of a year, representing 50 o
dollar transactions, and 25 of these peo
pay income taxes to the government at
rate of 4 per cent, the government will c
lect a one-dollar tax on that one doll
Through velocity of money and increa:
trade in business, taxes payable to the gi
ernment would be considerably enhanced.
The principal objection to increasing (
national income comes from those who
lieve that commodities should be cheap a
labor should be cheap. It should be not
however, that our country is never prosp
ous with low prices and low wages, but
invariably prosperous with good prices a
-ood wages.


A GOOD MAN IS RETURNED TO OFFI

Gulf county showed its appreciation
the work of an able representative when
returned E. Clay Lewis, Jr., to thetstate leg
lature for another term.
Mr. Lewis has worked faithfully for 1
interests of the county, and the state as
whole, during his tenure of office, and we c
feel certain that he will continue so to
H-e has pledged himself to work to reco'
the loss of the gas tax fund and keep the r;
track distribution intact, and we know tl
when he thus pledges himself his word v
be kept. He has also given the electorate
-cord that he will work for other benefic
measures, and we feel sure that he will
*II in his power along those lines.

Stardust and

Moonshine

By Their Other Fellow


, Editor Bill heaved a sigh of re-
1 lief the other day and thanked
D heaven that the commencement
days are over, because he had to
rush to the dictionary every time
Slie wanted to speak of the "bac-
- calaureate" services. And
S.when he got there I wonder if he
e discovered that it applies to a
ceremony in colleges and universi-
ties ONLY. . However,
'popular usage" being what it is,
I reckon we'll go right on having
- high school "baccalaureate ser-
mons." Also "commencement ex-
-r rcises," signalizing the END of
the school year.
But I, for one, refuse to refer to
them as "sweet girl graduates,"
Until somebody comes forward
With a certified chemical analysis
; showing the exact sugar content
i of one of 'em.

WVe get it on the doctor's au-
hnrity that depreciation and ob-
S0olePcence are human factors as
v'.ll as mechanical factors. With
Shis difference:
: A machine is built to do a cer-
a 'n thing; it is assembled under
-lose vigilance ana inspected be-
fore being shipped for installa-
*ion. A man is not built
Sto do a certain thing, is not as-
Ssembled under close scrutiny, and
is not inspected before he goes
Sonto the job.
In fact, says the doctor, the av-
'rage man presents 150 pounds of
miscellaneous bone, gristle and
S'muscle to anyone who will give
; 'iim a job, and leaves the work of
isspmbling, inspection, lubricating
and connecting absolutely up to
the boss.
"Here I am," he says, "if you
can't make anything out of me it's
your own fault."
And the minute the boss stops
molding, obsolescence sets in.

I was out in the woods Sunday
nnd saw a mother bird endeavor-
ing to teach one of her fledglings
to fly. He fluttered his
wings rapidly, but refused to take
off from the branch supporting
the nest, while the mother bird
scolded him and threatened him
in no uncertain terms with a
spanking if he didn't launch him-
self into the air, endeavor
ing to make him fly to another
tree about fifteen feet distant
He sized up the possibili-
ties, took a look at the earth so
!far below, drew a deep breath.


VOTE OF THANKS

It being impossible for me to
see all the people of this county,
I wish tto take this method of ex-
pressing my thanks and gratitude
for the kindness and confidence
you have shown in me. My only
hope is that I might make a good
representative and, be of some
service to the people of my
county.
I hope you wil: all call on me
when I may be able to render any
assistance.

VOTE OF THANKS

It is with a feeling of gratitude
that I express my deepest appreci-

I wish to further especially
thank my loyal and close friends
who based their vote on our long-

I wish to also commend my suc-

in which he conducted his cam-
paign and state that he has my
complete co-operation in his ful-
fillment of office.

Sneads Man Slays Wife and
Self Beforq His Daughters
Gerald Nutt of Sneads, 46. killed
his wife in the presence of their
three young daughters of their
five children and then killed him-
s'elf late last Saturday night.
The children, of whom the old-
est is 15, said their parents re-
turned home late from a prayer
meeting, apparently in g o o d
spirits.
"Is there anything between us?"
they said the father asked his 46-
year-old wife. She replied in the


negative. Then Nutt stepped into
the next room and returned with
a .22 calibre rife, which he fired
at Mrs. Nutt, the bullet entering
her left eye and killing her almost
instantly.
The children said he then left
the house. He was found in the
back yard by officers, a bullet
wound in his left temple.
Officers could learn of no cause
for the murder-suicide and stated
that no inquest would be called.

WORLD'S ACE ATTRACTION, 'SNOW

WHITE,' AT PORT SAT. AND SUN.

GRIMM'S NOTED TALE IN SUMPTUOUS TECHNICOLOR PRO-
DUCTION BY WALT DISNEY RECEIVES THE AC-
CLAIM OF A MASTERPIECE


"Snow White and the Seven
Dwarfs." Walt Disney's gorgeous-
ly produced musical feature-length
animated picture in technicolor,
which plays tomorrow and Sun-
day at the Port theater, was
launched with a notable world-
premiere at the carthay Circle
theater in Los Angeles shortly be-
fore 1 a st Christmas, followed
thereafter with a record-breaking
run at the New York's world-
famed Radio City Music Hall,
and has become the sensation of
motion picture entertainment. It
ahs taken its place in the front
ranks of important film attrac-
tions.
In production for three years,
and costing a million and a half
dollars, "Snow White" is expected
to establish a .standard for future
.animated features in much the
same manner that "The Birth of a
Nation" influenced the epic cycle
that followed.
The Disney picture is a drastic
departure from previous technique
in the animated field, ia that liv-
ing, credible beings have been
created in the persons of Snow


JACK PRIDGEON'S

FISH 'HATCHERY'

A N D IT'S VALUE

SHELL CRACKER BED IN DEAD
LAKES PROTECTED AS A
BOON TO FISHERMEN

Most people around Wewa-
hitchka (and .some, maybe, in
other sections) know by now that
'ishing on fish beds in the Dead
'.akes is "out." tnanks to Conser-
vation Officer Jack Pridgeon and
'he state department under which
eo works.
Day and night Mr. Pridgeon has
'ad guards watching a large bed
on the lakes. This shell-cracker
bed covers some three acres, and
we have calculated the fish which
this bed will produce.
Figuring the number of bedding
:fsh at about as many per acre
as you can "grow" anything else,
there would be, on the three acres,
2,115 bedding fish-which is far
bcow the actual number.
Mr. Thomas. assistant manager
of..the state fish hatchery, and a
nman of many years' experience
'. hatching fish, says a bedding
shell-cracker will produce about
1500 eggs at a laying. Figuring
:hat up, it means on the three-
acre bed there will be 7,402,500
fish eggs laid. If half of these
-*gs are hatched and the little
'. el-crackers get to hiding places
before their natural enemies such
\s turtles, gar-fish, alligators, etc.,
rct them, the finny tribe will be
increased in the Dead Lakes by
about 3,701,250 fish. (This is for
t.e hatch now o: -ne ped. These
:ish will bed again about the 14th
of May-on the next full moon-
making another huge increase in
the fish population of the Dead
Lakes.)
Protect'on Cost About $200
The cost of protecting this fish
bed, day and night, until the sea-
son opens or the fish leave the
bed. will be in the neighborhood
-of $o200.
C'an a.y fish hatchery, either
itte or federal, produce fish at
a :nll; a cost?
'r. Pridge:,n, long with others,
S'.,Ic-e that the bel mentioned
?.ov.- b-- heen fished clca:: for a
-,"'.be- ?' years past, and he de-
-rj-"ed to protect it this year.
T:r:. 'e c.o-operation of the


White, the seven dwarfs, the
queen, the prince and other char-
acters in the famous Grimms'
phantasy. In addition, the art
treatment departs radically from
cartoon expression. An illusion of
depth has been added through the
use of the multiplane camera, an
invention perfected by Disney
technicians. This new camera
treatment makes three-dimension-
al figures out of characters drawn
in a two-dimensional medium.
Added interest attaches to the
eight musical numbers in the fea-
ture, the outstanding one being
"Hi-Ho," the marching song sung
by the dwarfs.
The story relates the adventure
of a beautiful young scullery
maid whose youth and charm
arouse the envy of a wicked
queen, who plots in various ways
to get rid of her forever. How the
queen nearly succeeds after seek-
ing out Snow White In the latter's
refuge among seven kinaly dwarfs
and how the little heroine is
finally rescued by her Prince
Charming is pictured with exquis-
ite artistry and humor combined.


department, he employed men to
watch day and night, and Mr.
Pridgeon says he will continue to
protect this bed, and others on
the Dead Lakes, or wherever lo-
cated, if it is possible to do so.
Sight Long To Be Remembered
The editor had his first experi-
ence in seeing fish on their bed.
It was a sight long to be remem-
bered. Shell-crackers which looked
to weigh two pounds and more
were plentiful, and we had an op-
portunity to verify the statement
of experienced fishermen who
have told us that a bedding fish
does not bite a worm on a hook,
but that they attack the worm to
remove it from their bed where
their young are being hatched. We
saw the big fellows attack any
moving object which came near
their little nest-like place, and
there were hundreds of these
nest-like places being guarded by
one, two and sometimes dozens of
huge shell-crackers.
Just why anyone should, for a
few paltry dollars, allow fishing
on a fish-bed, and thus destroy
millions of fish, is -eyond the rea-
soning power of any thinking per-
san. And why anyone would want
to eat fish when breeding, is be-
yond reason. Some say the male
fish is good to eat when breeding,
but according to the nature of a
fish, the male is as responsible
for the germination and fertiliza-
tion of the egg as the female, and
he is therefore just as unfit for
food as the female--except for
those persons who would eat al-
most anything.
Yes, Jack Pridgeon's fish hatch-
ery is running all other hatcheries
a. leading race in the number o.'
fish produced, and he has the
best wishes for the continued pro-
oction of this fish bed, and all
3ther fish beds, and as he has the
::o-operation of the department un-
.er which he wo.'-s, so far, the
opening of the fishing season in
l:uf county will find plenty of
fish, and especially the famous
.hell-crackers, so plentiful that
everybody who cares to go fishing
n the Dead Lakes can catch all
the law allows.-Gulf Co. Breeze.

OF FARM DEBTS

SERVICE AVAILABLE WITHOUT
COST TO FARMERS ABOUT
TO LOSE PROPERTY

Assistance in the adjustment of
debts which threaten foreclosure
is being offered the farmers of
(Iul t cunily by a voluntary com-
-;t.ae o!' the state farm debt ad-
justment commission, in co-opera-
Lien with the federal farm secur-
ity administration, according to
C. G. Costin of tills city, chair-
man of the Gulf county group.
This work has been carried on
in Florida for thw past three and
a half years and has resulted in
the settlement of 1,877 cases in-
volving $5,078,180 of indebtedness.
Although the scale-down of hope-
'essly excessive debts in many
cases h a s saved hard-pressed
farmers $972.588, this method of
,adjustment is attempted o n i y
when it is evident that the debts
are beyond the farmer's ability to
pay. No assistance is given any-
on0: seeking to avoid payment of
reasonable obligations.
,Tie debt adjustment service is
available without cost to any
farmer threatened with loss of his
property, or to any farm creditor.
Applications for assistance may
be submitted either to S. Lehr
Miller of Tallahassee, state super-
visor for the federal agency;
Chairman Costin, of the local conr-
mittete, or George E. Simmons of
Marianna, county supervisor of
the farm security administration.
Besides Mr. Costin, members of
the Gulf county committee are
J. HI. Kelly, secretary, and C. F.
Glenn, of Wewahitchka, and W. G.
Hardy of Overstreet.

DOG LICENSES NOW DUE.,
SAYS CHIEF OF POLICE
Police Chief Troy Jones states
that dog licenses were due on
May 1. and that all owners of dogs
within the city come to his office
and secure licenses for their pets.
Cost of the license, which is
$1.50, also includes inoculation of
the dog for rabies. This is very
essential, according to Chief Jones,
for with warm weather coming on
there will undoubtedly be many
cases of rabies.
