For Final Approval; Proposed
Building To Be Center of
Centennial Celebration

ESTIMATED COST $50,00(

Is Needed to Provide Place
For Public Speaking, En-
tertainment, Dancing

Mayor J. L. Sharit yesterday re-
ceived a letter from United States
Senator Claude Pepper informing
him that the application of the
city of Port St. Joe for a WPA
grant for the purpose of con-
structing. a civic center in Monu-
m'ent Park had received the pre-
liminary approval of the state
WPA office at Jacksonville and
had been forwarded to Washing-
ton for processing and final ap-
proval.
Senator Pepper informed Mayor
Sharit that "I will do everything
possible to get this through as
soon as .possible."
This is indeed good news. as it
is essential that work on the
building start at the earliest pos-
sible moment in order that it may
be completed and the grounds
surrounding it be landscaped in
time for the Centennial Celebra-
tion to be held here December 7
to 10 commemorating the 100th
anniversary of the signing of Flor-
ida's constitution in o 1 d St.
Joseph in 1838.
The civic center, which will be
of brick with a cast stone front.
wil: cost in the neighborhood of
$50,000 and plans for the struc-
ture were drawn some time ago.
It will be 109 by 82 feet with a 64
by 80-foot auditorium with a seat-
ing capacity of 700 persons. It
will also contain a 25 by 55-foot
stage with dressing rooms and the
second floor will provide a large
room for a museum and two 14
by 21-foot meeting rooms.
The city's matching funds for
the project will b'e provided pri-
marily from donations received
from contractors who had con-
siruction contracts on the St. Joe
Paper company mill.
Plans for the Centennial re-
volve about this civic center, as it
is planned to use it for public
speaking, dancing and other forms
of entertainment.

PROPOSAL OF MASONIC LODGE

IS ACCEPTED FOR POSTOFFICE


Postmaster H. A. Drake re-
ceived word yesterday that the
postoffice department has ac-
cepted the proposal of Port St.
Joe Lodge No. 111, F. & A. M.,
to lease for a period of 10 years
for postoffice purposes, new quar-
ters to be provided upon the
present postoffice building site on
Reid avenue, between Second and
Third streets. The equipment to
be furnished in the new quarters
will be government-owned.
It is not known just when work
will be started on the new build-
ing, but it is expected to be very
soon, ail preliminary plans having


been completed at the time of
submitting the bid on Febi-ary 3,
at which time several others were
also submitted.
It is mainly through the efforts
of Congressman Millard Caldwell
and Postmaster H. A. Drake that
the city is to have a new postof-
fice, and it will Indeed be wel-
come, as the present office is in-
adequate not only in size. but in
equipment and personnel, to care
for the rapidly increasing number
of patrons.

THE DEADLY MARIJUANA

The increase in the sale and use of illicit
.habit-forming drugs has reached alarming
proportions throughout the world, and all na-
tions, including the United States, are anxi-
ously endeavoring to bring to an end the
worst evil of .its .kind in the history of civili-
zation. '
Highest .in the sales bracket of dope is
opium and its immediate offspring, heroin
and morphine, -'vith marijuana (called by
many other names) gaining mucn neadway in
.this country. A remarkable feature is that
with few licensed world manufacturers pro-
ducing only about $2,000,000 worth of opium
,and ..its by-products annually, evidence has
been brought to the attention of narcotics
officials that the actual sales amnount to sev-
eral times that amount every year! A sig-
aificant .fact is that in China, where the
opium poppy is often promiscuously grown,
a sincere effort is being made by Chinese au-
thorities tto .halt the illegal sale' and use of
the drug, while in those regions where the
Japanese have :taken over no attempt is made
.to curb the increasing growth of the illicit in-
dustry, thus bringing about a puzzling situa-
tion ;among those nations co-operating with
China.
Marijuana, hashish, loco weed or whatever
-you may call this new and amazing drug
(really one of the oldest drugs known to
man), has been found growing in many places
throughout America. It has been found in
.Florida, Georgia and South Carolina, as far
-,vest as California, and as far norih as Maine.
For all the residents of Port St. Joe may
.know it may be growing in'their own back
yards undetected!
This drug, usually made i:.to cigarets, finds
a :ready market for young men and women,
especially those of high school and college
age, who are willing to take a chance on
"getting a lift" with a new kind of smoke.
Its use produces a strange effect on the
mind of the smoker, sometimes ending tragic-
ally. The experiences of those who have used
marijuana, as well as other kinds of habit-
forming drugs, are, in many instances, too
horrible to relate. However, enough is
known of their effect by the general public
to realize to what horrible consequences the
unfortunate victim may be led.
fortunatelyy the illegal use of drugs in
'West Florida is very small, but the fact that
this section is near newly-created seaports
gives -it a distinct advantage to smugglers of
opium and marijuana in that the dope easily
could be shipped in here hidden away in in-
.nocent-looking tins, cartons and other simi-
lar devices. After smuggling it could be
shipped anywhere in the United States, Can-
ada and Mexico, for ready distribution among
millions of potential addicts or thrill-seekers.
In order to protect their families, especi-
:. ally the.boys:and girls of the 'teen ages, from
the ravages of dope, parents of Port St. Joe
,shatild be vigilant .always, and if they have
-sufficient reason to believe habit-froming
.drugs are being sold illegally here or is be-
ing distributed in nearby cities, they should
-eport it immediately to the United States
Bureau of Narcotics for full investigation.


IN REPLY TO YOUR REQUEST-

.'he following is a letter allegedly sent to
a manufacturer by a local merchant in reply
to a "please remit" letter. The only com-
ment we have to make is that it is exceeding
'truthful:
Dear Sir-In reply to your request to send
a check I wish to inform you that the pres-
ent condition of my bank account makes it
almost impossible. My shattered financial
condition is due to federal laws, state laws,
county laws, city laws, corporation laws,
liquor laws, mother-in-laws, brother-in-laws,
sister-in-laws and outlaws.
Through these laws I am compelled to pay
a business tax, amusement tax, head tax,
school tax, food tax, gas tax, light tax, sales
tax, water tax, liquor tax, carpet tacks, in-
come tax, furniture tax, syntax and excise
tax; even my brains are taxed. I am re-
quired to get a business license, car license,
truck license, liquor license, not to mention
a marriage license and a dog license.
I am also required to contribute to every
society and organization which the genius of
man is capable of bringing to life-to unem-
ployment relief, women's relief and the gold
diggers' relief. Also to -every hospital and
charitable" institution in the city, including
the Red Cross, the black cross, the purple
cross and the double-cross.
For my own safety, I am-required to carry
life- insurance, property insurance, liability
insurance, burglary insurance, accident insur-
ance, business insurance, earthquake insur-
ance, tornado insurance, unemployment insur-
ance, old age insurance and fire insurance.
My business is governed so that it is no
easy matter for me to find out who owns it.
I am inspected, expected, suspected, disre-
spected, rejected, dejected, examined, re-ex-
amined, informed, required, summoned, fined,
commanded and compelled until I provide an
inexhaustible supply of money for every
known need, desire or hope of the human
race.
Simply because I refuse to donate to some-
thing or other, I am boycotted, talked about,
lied about, held up and held down, and
robbed until I am almost ruined.
i can tell you honestly that except for the
miracle that happened, I could not enclose
this check. The wolf that comes to my door
nowadays just had pups in my kitchen, and
I sold them-and here is the money.

WASHINGTON

SNAPSHOTS
By JAMES PRESTON


Third party talk has overshad-
owed all other interests in the na-
lional capital this week, dwarfing
:uch important questions as pump-
priming, anti-monopoly legislation.
wage-hour legislation and the gov-
ernment-business "peace" moves.
The reason is that Washington-
ians find more of lasting personal
importance in third party develop-
r'enus than in there economic ill-
ness of John Public. 'That is to
be expected, for the capital's life
blood is the brew of the political
pots.
Underneath, however, interest iF
still very much alive on the cur.
rent national issues. with the 193S
edition of the spending spree there
biggest issue.

In the camp of those champion
ing the spending program, a new
idea has been hit upon to con
vinc'e doubters that our national
debt picture isn't so bad as it's
painted (almost $3S,000,000,000 tr
date). The spending advocates
have come up with a set of fig-
ures purporting to show that
Uncle Sam really isn't in any dan
geo of bankruptcy because lie has
umpteen billions in assets. They
list the assets as public buildings
etc.
Can't you just see the crowd
bidding for the interior depart-
nent's new $12,000,000 edifice in
Washington, or that new postof-
fice in Podunk, or John Public
steaming off for a vacation in the
South Seas aboard a 35,000-ton
battleship he's just bought at pub-
lic auction in Washington? Those
are the "assets" the Washington
bookkeepers hax-e dug up to off-
set the liability side of the na-
tional ledger.

The WPA has come up with an-
other new "relief" idea. It has
offered immortality on canvas to
all public officials wnoi. it deems
"worthy" of preservation for pos-
terity.
Any public official can have his
portrait painted in oil by the WPA
if lie can prove his worthiness to
the satisfaction of the WPA.
More than 200 government offi-
cials already have had gratified
their wish to see themselves per-
petuated. Several hundred others
have sent in applications. Eight
artists are at work on the proj-
ect and WPA says it has enough
applications to keep 100 painters


Stardust and

Moonshine


By The Other Fellow.


The. city of Port St. Joe may
join thousands of other communi-
ties, both large and small in this
country, that it has not a dicta-
torial mayor such as the one who
literally bosses Jersey City.
It is surprising that federal
laws are so inept as to allow the
chief 'executive of any govern-
mental unit to clamp on the con-
stitutional right of freedom of
speech. Mayor Hague, referred to
in many quarters as "I Am the
Law" because of his boast to that
effect, has used force in prevent-
ing union sympathizers and So-
cialist lcp.ders from addressing
the citizens of Jersey City. Re-
cently his strongarm forces, wear-
ing police uniforms, escorted Nor-
man Thomas, three times candi-
date for the presidency on the So-
cialist ticket, out of Jersey City-
thus precipitating a storm of dis-
approval from both Democratic
and Republican leaGers, including
Alf Landon.
And Saturday Congressmen J.
J. O'Connell and John T. Ber-
nard failed to speak in Jersey
City defying a city ordinance pro-
hibiting public speech making
without a permit, because of fear
of bloodshed.
It matters not what one's po-
litical faith may be. the constitu-
tion of the United States still re-
mains as the law of the land, ana
its "freedom of speech, press, re-
ligion and peaceful assembly"
clauses must be upneld-not be
broken by the mere whim of a
mayor whose power has made
him drunk and absolutely a dicta-
tor of the worst sort. Reading of
such occurrences as have passed
in Jersey City one cannot help but
compare that citt to Munich.
Citizens of Port St. Joe, you are
indeed fortunate. You live with
men whose only thought is for the
ultimate good of the corhmunity.
And above all, you have
a chief executive who is co-opera-
tive In a land were democracy
still reigns and cares not to take
upon his shoulders the mantle of
Hitler and Mussolini.

busy for a year.
The paintings remain the prop-
erty of the government, but may
be loaned to cities, counties and
states for display to "impress the
natives" of the "worthiness" of
their public officials.

Many Long Years Ago
Under this heading' willI be published a series of articles taken
from old newspapers and clippirig. They will be mostly, of his-'
torical interest and should make an, interesting.scrap book.


(Editor's Note: Due to ,the
press of political 'advertising,
these articles were discontinued
for several weeks. We have had
a number of requests for their
continuance and are glad to
comply.)

(From The United States Saturday
Post, March ,8, 1845)
CLOSE OF CONGRESS
We have not space, opportunity
or precise data for recording all
the movements made during the
last few days of the session of
congress, -nor is it necesasry. To
give the final result of the delib-
erations, or what they have ef-
fected and what they have de-
feated, is all that the reader -will
desire.
The resolutions of the house,
annexing Texas, were passed by
the senate.Aon Thursday, with an
amendment giving the president
perfnii:sson 'or disce:.ion, to. make
a new treaty with. Tes';s.the basis
of annexation, i- he should.so de-
sire.
On Friday the a4n7ended resolu-
tion passed the house, /132 to 76.
The resolutibn-'reeived the sig'a-
ture of President Tyler, and his
nephew. Mvas iinedlately .. dis-
patched ta-o-exasb.vith the docu-
ment. .
The .poto fice bill was amended
in the' hoiise by t:e'addition of a
rate of 10 cents for distances' over
300 miles, and with a proviso that
it shall not take effect, in any of
its provisions, until the 1st of
July next. All the appropriation
bills were passed, by the aid .of
committees of conference, each re-
ceding from somv or Its amend-
ments. To the general appropria-
tion bill is an amendment provid-
ing that $275,000 shall be paid
cc:'tain Mexican claimants, pro-
vided it can be proved, as is as-
serted, that this money has been
paid by M'exico and lost through
delinquency of the U. S. Agent.
The provision on the navy ap-


propriation bill ror paying the
heirs of Robert Fulton $76,000 was
lost in the senate. A separate bill
for the same purpose passed by
the senate, was lost in the house.
It is remarkable that a bill for
this puropse has SIX times passed
the house and FOUR times the
senate, but the friends of the
measure were never able to get
the matter through both houses at
the same season.
Although all the appropriation
!,ills passed, the harbor bill was
ost by the president's refusing
cithC' to sign it or send it back.
it cmbraced appropriations of over
Snil iin of dollars, $125,000 of
which were for the Delaware
rivsr. One bill which Mr. Tyler
vetood-the act directing that
avenuee cutters shall be built only
by special act of congress-was,
-issed notwithstanding his veto.
I: the senate there was one vote
n the negative, in the house 31.
This is the first instance of a bill
having been thu- enacted in the
'isto:y of the country. Possibly
.'tr. Tyl'er feared the harbor bill

State's 4-H Club Movement For Rural

Boys and Girls Marches Steadily Ahead


MEMBERS LOOKING AHEAD TO
MANY ACTIVITIES DURING
COMING MONTHS

GAINESVILLE, May 13-Spring
of 1938 finds the Florida 4-H club
movement advancing with more
rapidity and vigor than ever be-
fore. Along with the prospect of
school vacations, club members
are looking to the completion of
their projects, to the annual short
courses and to the summer camp-
ing season.
Achievement day, when each
club member submits a record
and other evidence of his or her
handiwork during the year, is be-
ing observed in many counties of
the state at this tmre. It's some-
thing that club members look for-
ward to with a great deal of an-
ticipation because it may mean a
scholarship to short course at the
University of Florida or the Flor-
ida State College eor Women if
the character of their work is out-
standing.
Short courses have a big appeal
for these youngsters. Leading club
members from many counties of
the state go to Gainesville or Tal-
lahassee each spring to spend a
week on college campuses and
study and play under direction of
college faculty members. Atten-
dance at these courses has been
steadily increasing during the
past few years and the number at-
tending this year will probably be
arger than in the past. The short
course for boys will be held at the
University of Florida from May 30
to June 4, while the course for
girls will be held at F. S. C. W.
from June 4 to June 11.
A trip to the national club camp
in Washington awaits Leroy Fort-
ner of Alachna county and John
D. Campbell of Dade county, on
June 16. they having been se-


be awarded trips to the camp.
Club members are also looking
forward to the summer camping
season. During this season, boys
and girls from many counties of
the state attend one of the club
camps for a week of outdoor life,
friendly association with one an-
other, and some study a:ong with
the recreation.
Heretofore, Fllorida has had but
two camps of this type-Camp
McQuarrie in Ocala national for-
est and Camp Timpoochee in
Choctawhatchee national forest-
but there will be a third camp this
year-Cherry Lake Camp, in Mad-
ison county. With the three camps
Ignore boys and girls are expected
to attend .camp during the coming
summer than ever before.
Construction on Cherry Lake
Camp is progressing rapidly, and
it will be ready for occupancy late
in June or early in July. It is be-
ing constructed along the same
modern lines as the two older
camps, with electricity, running
water, screened cottages, swim-
ming docks, athletic fields and
other facilities.
Cognizant of the fine work club
boys have done in feeding 'and
managing livestock, directors of
the Florida Fat Stock Show are
now working with the state cattle-
men's association on a plan for as-
sisting them in buying better
stock for feeding than they have
had in the past.
Baker county recently effected
a milestone in D-lorida 4-H club
history and set an example for
other counties of the state with
construction and dedication of its
county club building-the first of
its kind in Florida and one of the
first of its kind in the nation.
There have been many other de-
vc-lopments of note in Florida 4-H
club work during the past few


,ected for this, the highest honor months, but these, the most oul
a Florida club boy can win, be- standing, are considered by th
cause of the excellence of their state agricultural extension sern
work. Florida's two outstanding ice as striking evidence of stead

Watson Thanks

W. Florida Voters

For Support

INTENDS TO TOUR ALL WEST
COAST COUNTIES BEFORE
NEXT PRIMARY

J. Tom Watson of Tampa, a
second primary contestant in the
race for election to the Florida
supreme court in group 2, this
week voiced his gratitude to the
people of West Florida for "the
splendid vote they accorded me
in my first primary race."
"I intend to carry on tire same
intensive .campaign all over the
state that I mace for the first
primary." Watson said, "and I
know that the people of West
Florida will continue to stand by
me as they did beforee"
Watson, who carried 12 of the
20 counties west of the Suwannee
river by substantial counts and
was high man in a three-cornered
race in 23 countries of the state,
said he probably would make a
campaign tour of all West Flor-
ida counties within the next
week or 10 days.
Gulf county went strong for
Watson, giving him 495 votes to
278 for T. G. Futch and 286 for El-
wyn Thomas.

Child Accidents

Happen Mostly

Near the Home

ASHER FRANK, SAFETY DI-
RECTOR GIVES RULES TO
AVOID INJURIES

Co-ope:ating w:th the National
Safety Council in reducing acci-
dents, Asher Frank. director of
the Florida Safety Council, states
that it has been found that 70 per
cent of child accidents occur in
the home or near the home.
Here are some good rules out-
lined by Mr. Frank that ray save
your child from having an acci-
dent:
1. Teach your children never
to run into the street, always to
look both ways and wait until the
way is safe before stepping .off
the curb.
2. Teach them to play in yards
or enclosed public play places,
never to play in the street.
3. Caution them never to let a
scooter carry them into the
street; never to coast where traf-
fic passes, and never to hitch bi-
cycles or wagons to automobiles
or other vehicles.
4. Do not given children air
rifles, toy pistols, sharp knives
or other dangerous playthings.
5. Explain to children the dan-
ger in using wire as cord for kites.
6. Talk about the causes of ac-
cidents at home, and children will
grow safety conscious.
