Continuance

Of Health Unit

Here Is Urged

County Cimmissioners Will Be
Asked To Provide In Budget
For Upkeep of Unit

Great interest is being taken
in this city in the work of the
Gulf county health unit and it has
been understood that unless funds
for its continuance, be raised the
good work being 'done will be dis-
continued.
Citizens of Port St. Joe do not
want to see the unit discontinued
here and efforts are now under-
way to find some means of secur-
ing the necessary money for con-
tinuing the work. The Lions club
went on record at their meeting
Tuesday night endorsing activities
of the county health unit in Port
St. Joe and the secretary of the
organization was instructed to
write the county commissioners
urgin'i that a sufficient amount be
included in the 1935-39 budget to
continue the work.
Mayor J. L. Sharit will also ap-
pear before, the county commis-
sioners at their budget meeting
to make a plea for continuance of
the- work. The health unit has
been supported in the past mainly
by contributions by the cities of
Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka
irom their portions of the race
track fund, but it is felt 'that as
the work is county-wide that the
upkeep should, come from county
'funds and not merely from these
two cities.

STATE C. OF C.

HEAD TO SPEAK

IN PORT ST, JOE

HAROLD COLEE TO BE GUEST
OF LOCAL CHAMBER
SOON

The entertainment committee
of the Port St. Joe Chamber vo-
Commerce has made arrangements
for Harold Colee, president of tbV
state their guest and to deliver at, ad-
dress at the new band shell' in
the waterfront park about June 21.
Mr. Colee is a very able speaker
o. national reputation and is con-
i~cted with some of the larger
activities o'f th'e present day and
age and should be well worth lis-
tening to. This will be his first
visit to Port St. Joe, and lively in-
terest is being manifested in his
coming. It is hoped that a large
crowd will b'e present to hear him
speak, as his remarks will not be
confined to chamber of commerce
work, but will touch on subjects
of general interest.
Announcement will be made in
next week's Star as to the exact
day and time- of Mr. Colee's' ap-
pearance here.
An invitation is extended to
everyone to be present and hear
Mr. Colee. The local high school
band, under the, direction of Dan
Farmer, will be present and will
entertain the audience throughout
the evening with selections be-
fore and after the meeting and
curing intermissions.

BAND CONCERTS

IN PARK WILL

BEGIN SUNDAY


TIME IS 3
NOON;
ON


O'CLOCK IN AFTER-
WORK STARTED
BAND STAND


The band concerts which are be-
ing sponsored by the local cham-
ber of commerce, and for which
preparations have been going for-
ward for the past month, are to
begin with the first recital next
Sunday, June 12. in the park be-
tween the Port Inn and the bay.
The entertainment committee of
the chamber has secured some do.
nations of lumber andi other ma-
terial and obtained permission
for use of the park for this pur-
pose and erection of a band stand
and suitable seats. Part of this
material has already been de-
livered to the park and work will
be started at once in getting
things ready. However, the work
will not be completed this week,
but will be far enough along to
have the first concert Sunday.
Time for this has been set for 3
o'clock in the afternoon. This hour
was selected as a test to find if
it will suit the general public. It
would be impossible- to select a.
time that would please everyone,
but this was! decided on due to
the fact that the sun will be over-
head- and there will be plenty of
shade. Also it does not conflict
with church services. Later a vote
will be taken to fix upon a time
that will meet with the greatest
approval.
All materials and labor for this
project are being donated, and there
work will move forward as fast as
donations are received. The city
board of commissioners are co-op-
crating in furthering this type of
civic "g-et-together," as larei the
business people of the city.
An invitation is extended the
churches and various clubs and
societies to each appoint a mem-
ber as a representative on the
general committee to assist in
forming plans, arranging programs
and. in helping to carry on the
work for the greater good of our
city.

Minister's Son PRESIDENT APPROVES
Confesses In Cash

Kidnaping Case CITY'S CIVIC CENTER


Takes G-Men To Boy's Body and
Returns Ransom Money; Had
Been Held As Suspect

Franklin Pierce McCall, 21, son
of a minister and former tenant
in the Cash apartment house at
Miami, held for some time as a
suspect in the kidnapping of James
Bailey Cash, Jr., yesterday con-
fessed, writing ransom notes and
collecting $10,000, and led G-Men
to the spot where the body of the
5-year-old boy lay in a thicket. No
effort had been made at burial,
and little remained- but the skele-
ton and fragments of the pajamas
the boy wore when he was taken
from his bed on May 28.
McCall was taken into custody
on1 June 1 as a suspect when he
d!reeted lJames B. Cash's attention
to the third ransom note, saying
he found' it on the floor of Cash's
apartment and that the kidnaper
apparently had slipped it under
the door. That was, the slip that
caused his arrest, as the sheriff
became suspicious because the
note had been wadded into a ball
and could not have been slipped
under the door.
In addition to recovering the
ransom money, authorities also
foundd the shoebox in which Cash
delivered the 1500 bills of small
denomination. It had been torn to
pieces and, hidden beneath a stone
in a palmetto clump.
Locations of the body, the ran-
som money and the shoebox indi-
cated the locale of the crime
never ranged farther than two
miles from the Cash home at any
time.
McCall implicated no one else
in the crime and authorities be-
lieve he was not aided in the
snatch by an accomplice.

LET OLD GLORY WAVE TUESDAY

Next Tuesday, June 14-, will mark the one
hundred and sixty-first anniversary of the
appearance of the American flag among the
banners of the nations and the local Ameri-
can L'egion post urges every business house
and home in Port St. Joe display the flag on
that day.
"The United States flag is unique in the
deep and noble significance of its message to
the entire world," said Post Commander T.
M. Schneider, "a message of national inde-
pendence, of individual liberty, of idealism,
of patriotism, and we would like to feel that
everybody in Port St. Joe realizes this and
will display the flag."
The American flag was brought into being
by a congressional resolution on June 14,
1777, which read: "That the flag of the thir-
teen United States be thirteen stripes, alter-
nate red and white, that the Union be thir-
teen stars, white in a blue field, representing
a new constellation."
History and national growth, dramatic mo-
ments and achievements, have been recorded
with the additions of stars to tiat field. Back
in those days of the thirteen new states, it
is related that George Washington, Robert
Morris and George Ross went to the home
of Betsy Ross and there asked ner aid in the
making of the new flag. The "grand union"'
flag which Washington had previously de-
signed, they felt, was not suitable in that it
had the king's colors in the canton.
The picture of Betsy Ross making the flag
hangs in many American homes, and the
story is dear to the hearts of the millions. It
is said it was she who suggested the five-
pointed stars instead of the six, that she
worked with an exalted sense of the unusual
honor conferred upon her, and that, in truth,
the banner was born out of the highest pa-
triotic thought.
The field of the flag is now heavily
sprinkled with stars, the states stretch from
Atlantic to Pacific. On the first Flag Day
the background to the New England states
was mystery; Florida was an unexplored wil-
derness; in a few places on the Pacific coast
the padres and explorers had built missions
and planted the emblem of Spain. There was
not a true republic in the whole world. The
flag stood for experiment in government, for
the bravest adventure in democracy, and
there were many in the Old World to predict
it would have short life. Times came when
the predictions came near being borne out.
Within two months of its making, the ban-
ner was carried into battle at Fort Stanwix.
It was with Washington on the Brandywine
on September 11, 1777. Over in Quilberon
Bay, in France, in 1878, it flew from the mast
of John Paul Jones' "Ranger" and was given
its first salute by a foreign nation. In 1812,
the Mexican War, Indian wars, Civil War,
Spanish War, World War and on worthy and
important missions of many kinds the flag
of the independence, George Washington,
Betsy Ross, the American people, has been
the symbol of a new nation destined to
greatness.


That modernistic front on the new Port
theater gives a big city touch to Reid avenue.


CPEN LETTER TO EVERY DRIVER WHO
7 :.'S THROUGH OUR STREETS

I saw you barely miss a little boy on a tri-
cycle this aiterInoon and heard you yell: "Get
the h-- out of the way! Don't you know
any better than to ride in the street?" Ie
didn'tt answer because he hasn't learned to
talk very well yet. So I'mn going to answer
for him.
No, the little boy doesn't know any better
iian Lto ride his tricycle in the street. Hle has
iien warned not to, but little boys don't al-
\\ays hecd warnings. Some adults don't
either, especially traffic warniiigs; for ex-
ample, the one limiting the speed of automo-
biles.
I'm going to tell you something about that
little boy. lie has a mother who endured
considerable inconvenience, anxiety and suf-
fering to bring him into the world. H1e has
a father whlo has worked hard and made
many sacrifices to make him healthy and
happy. The supreme purpose of their lives
is to have their little boy grow up to be a
useful man.
Now stop a minute and think. If you
should kill a child, how would you feel facing
its parents? What excuse could you give
them for having robbed them of their dear-
est possession? More important: What ex-
cuse could you possibly offer Himx whose
Kingdom is made up of little children?
Children, my hasty friend, were here long
before you or your automobile were thought
of. All the automobiles on earth are not
worth the life of one little bov. We don't
know what that little boy may some day be.
But we know what you are, and it's unim-
portant. We could get along without you,
],bt we can't spare a single little boy on this
street.--George M. Smith in "Death Begins
at 40."


EASY SAPS?


When we think of the hard luck stories
the ';uropcan countries put up when they
were asked to pay their war debts and then
consider what they have spent since," in the
preparation for another war, it makes us feel
that we were a bunch of easy saps or else we
were deliberately trimmed in a shell game.
Every country owing this nation a war
debt has spent more in preparation for the
next war than the total of their debt to us.
Furthermore, most of them would just as
soon, if the occasion arose, turn the guns
purchased by our money, upon us.-Titusville
Star-Advocate.


Commissioner of Agriculture Nathan Mayo
has started something that will mean a great
deal to the motoring public. He is formu-
lating plans for establishment of grades and
standards for gasoline which will declare its
true quality and each pump in a filling sta-
tion will be labeled according to the standard
of gasoline it contains. No longer will the
unscrupulous operator be able to foist off on
an unsuspecting public low grade gasoline at
top prices. More power to you, Nathan!

Sunday, June 19, is Father's Day, and for-
tunate is the boy or girl who has a father
that they can point to with pride and respect,
as a man of honor and integrity among men,
faithful and just to his family.


Looks like a lot of married couples in Cal-
houn county don't know whether or not they
are hitched. Well, anyway, it might save
some of 'em divorce costs if they decide to
separate.

It is quite a common sight nowadays to
see some of your friends who whizzed about
the countryside in a 60-horsepower automo-
bilepass slowly down the street in a 60-horse-
')ower hearse.


Looks like Mayor Hague of Jersey City is
setting himself up as a dictator. First thing
we know Jersey City will be seceding from
'he Union.

I suppose all of you know that
next Tuesday is Flag Day? .
WVe:l, if you don't you do now.
The finest eulogy on the flag,
n my opinion is one written by
I. I. Murphy of Hayes. Kan., on
March 28, 1917. It was first print-
-! in the Topeka (Kan.) Daily
Capitol, March 30, 1917, and since
that time it has appeared in nu-
smerous publications all over the
United States.
This apostroplre to the flag was
s-readl on the Congressional Re-
'or'l, Journal of the house of rep-
resentatives, approved by the Kan-
*as state Legion, the Americanisni
department of the American Le-
-iou. Grand Army of the Repub-
ic, the United confederate Vet-
-rans. the National Loyalty league,
he Daughters of the American
Evolution, and the Sons of Union
Veterans of the Civil War.

The grand jury said in a forma;
'*p;ort to the court "the flagrant
.-iolation of the marriage license
laws, because of the infringement
:o the sanctity of the home, is
.erious. and' we condemn it."
According to Walnwright's au-
dit in 63 marriage license cases
between January 5, 1937, and
April 15, 1938, applications for the
licenses were not properly signed.
"There were 11 certificates where
one party was under age and the
consent of the parents was not
recorded. There were 19 certifi,
cates on which the ages were not
shown. Thirty of the licenses
found in the files were of a differ-
ent form than those issued: by the
bureau of vital statistics.
"All of the discrepancies .
are in violation of the law and
in each instance might invalidate
the marriage performed under the
license issued and have effect on
the future generations of this
state."
Juiige Leath, the auditor said,
did not forward licenses to the
bureau of vita' statistics as re-
2hired by law, and had not prop-
erly r'emitted fees.
"The judge claims," the report
conli;;ned, "that the marriage li-
cense laws are unconstitutional.
and that he has so declared them,
and therefore the licenses are not
rrturnrable to .he bureau of vital
statistics."
State laws lre-tuire affidavits in
wvriting by both parties on their
ages in obtaining a marriage li-
cense. If either party is under 21
yrars. parental consent must be
shown.
eYtcrds o" She.'if J. K. Mus-
grove of Calhoun county were "in
i deplorable condition," the audi-
ro said in another report. "He
h.s boen neglige'tt in collecting
bonds for fino's and costs." The
h," sowed the sheriff owed the
o:u;nty $270.49, while the county
owed thte sheriff; ..4,311.49.
The county grand jury also re-
"iuested the stath auditing depart-
ment to make audits of other
county offices. Its report said' the
1939 legislature should be asked
tot increase the department's ap-
propriation so that additional au-
Sitors may be employed.

GIBBS UNOPPOSED FOR
ATTORNEY GENERAL
George C. Gibbs. who now holdJ
.th o"aice by appointment, won
incon;.ested Democratic nomnina-
tion to fill the unexpired term of
*he late Attorney General Cary D.
i and's. His nomination was as-
sured when no opponent qualified.
Since Gibbs is iie only man to
qualify, there will be no primary
voting.. State law provides for au-
tomatic nomination, without vot-
ing, if there is on:y one candidate
for an office.
Democratic nomination is equal
to election. Gibbs' name will go
on the November genera: election
ballot for the two years remaining
of the termn to which L::l' was
elected in 1936.
It had been proposed to hold a
special election on July 5 for the
selection of an attorney general.


THEY said it couldn't be done that tires
could not withstand the torture of the new high
speeds. Yet Floyd Roberts set a new record, at
this year's Indianapolis Race, averaging 117.2
miles an hour for the 500 miles on
Firestone Gum-Dipped Tires.
With the sun-baked brick of the
straight-away and the granite-hard surface
of the turns pulling and grinding at their
tires, 33 daring drivers, every one on
Firestone Tires, waged a thrilling
battle for gold and glory. Never
before have tires been called
upon to take such punishment. Never,
in all the history of the motor car has
tire safety been put to such a gruelling
test. Yet not one tire failed not one
single cord loosened because Gum-
Dipping, that famous Firestone
patented process saturates and coats
S every cotton fiber in every cord in
every ply with liquid rubber
counteracting the.tire-destroying
internal friction and heat that
ordinarily cause blowouts.
Why risk your life and the lives
of others on unsafe tires? Join the
Firestone SAVE A LIFE Campaign
today by equipping your car with
Firestone Triple-Safe Tires the only
tires made that are safety-proved on
the speedways for your protection on
the highways.

The interest and retirement of
the $200,000 revenue debenture
bonds is to be paid( from revenue
derived from the sale of water
and fees assessed for the use of
the sewer system, and are not a
lien against the real estate of the
city.
The city commissioners recently
passed an ordinance requiring
that "all installations and cutins"
to the water system be, paid by
the individuals requiring the serv-
ice, from the mains to the prop-
erty line. This was necessary be-
cause of the fact that the city has
no funds available with which to
pay for installations, and there
was no alternative. The commis-
sioners realized that the water
connections between mains and
the property lines should be made
at the expense of the water and
sewage system, and hope that at
some future time finances can be
arranged with which to refund
such costs of cutting in, now paid
by the consumer.
The commissioners have been
criticized as a result of passage
of this ordinance, on the grounds
that requiring the property owner
to pay a cost properly payable by
the water system will retard in-
stallations and materially reduce
the sale of waiter, from which the
system derives its revenue. This
argument may be true to a certain
extent, but where can the city se-
cure funds for that purpose which
would necessarily become a junior
lien inferior to the bond issue of
$200,000 with which to pay for in-
stallations?
As of April 30, 1938, there were
241 water consumers, earning an
average of $2.75 per customer.
There were 158 sewer connections
earning an avera-e of 60c each.
It was estimated that one year
after work was started on the wa-
ter and sewer systems that there
would be at leas- 400 users and
the system would be self-sustain-
ing from that time on, earning
enough revenue in addition to its
requirements for interest and sink-

make such extensions and connec-

for the period April 1, 1937, to

SKATING RINK

IS OPENED WITH

BIG FREE DANCE

HUGE CROWD ENJOYS MUSIC
BY BILL FARMER'S
ORCHESTRA

C. C. Williams held the formal
opening of his new skating rink
in Highland View last Saturday
light, importing Bill Farmer's
'amned orchestra from Dothan for
the occasion. No admission was
charged, the dance being free, and
Lhe rink was packed to capacity
with dancers and spectators.
Mr. Williams has a first-class
rink, with hardwood floor, and the
building is so constructed that the
0ool breezes from off the bay en-
ter the building on all sides, add-
ing materially to the pleasure of
patrons.
A bowling alley adjoining the
skating rink is being rushed to
completion and probably will be
open for use tomorrow.

The other day an invalid friend
of mine expressed the wish that
share might go ou- somewhere in
the bright sunshine. Her char-
woman, overhearing the remark,
spoke up: "My husband could
take you. He's on relief now and
we have a. car."-Letter to New
York Times.

Mr. Everett is building a cafe
adjoining the skating rink.

Driving out of town one Sunday
rec'enily, in the southern part of
the state, we came to an old ne-
.stclcdl graveyard. I walked be-
tween the graves, and on one was
a tombstone with a Spanish name,
the date, Born 1874; Died -
1877. There was six-inch wall
o' brick around the little grave
i;nd an old jar of wilted flowers
at l!te head.
The thought struck me and lin-
gored long after-what but a
mother love would cause one to
continue to place flowers on a
baby's grave for cl years, for
there was not a flower on another
grave.
I was saddened over this un-
known, but somehow my faith
was strengthened by this mani-
festation of' love and faithfulness.


It nmst have been inspiration
that caused Margaret Mitchell to
select the title "Gone With the
Wind" for her wonderful novel.
How expressive tire phrase is!
There is something sad and in-
expressibly touching in the words.
All the tragedy and heartache of
the years gone by are bottled up
in those four words. The old or-
der of the South followed by the


of the past seem a dream. So we
know, too, that even in our own
brief lives we can take comfort
and hope in the knowledge that
no matter how dark the, future
seems or how sorrow may seem
so large a portion, yet in a short
time all these will be "Gone With
the Wind."
So why hesitate to take up
cheerfully the burden of life each
day andi resolve to make it as
perfect as possible so that when
we are "Gone With the Wind" we
will leave respect and a little ache
of regret in the hearts of those
who are to follow on the next
"wind."

state championship. We picture
above the "Orange Box Regatta"

by the Florida Waterways Con-

While there have been no plans
made for a contest in Port St. Joe,
every normal boy would thrill to

this neat little crart themselves
at a total cost of not over $27.
This is not a toy, but a real
sturdy, seaworthy craft that you
can sail, equip with outboard mo-
tor, and use as a skiff with the
addition of rowlocks and removal
of sail and, centerboard. This type
of boat is known as a "pram." It
was originally developed for use
on the Scandinavian coast and
was officially adopted as the "Or-

cause it combines the features of

STATE TO FIX

GRADES F 0 R

GASOLINE

PUMPS WILL CARRY SIGNS
INDICATING GRADE OF
GASOLINE

For some time the state depart-
ment o' agriculture has had under
consideration the establishment of
grades and standards for gasoline
which would more accurately de-
fine and declare as "rue quality.
To do this it has been decided that
three definite grades should be es-
tablilshed and that all gasoline
sold to motorists should be clas-
sified as belonging to one of these
grades.
The classification will be dieter-
mined by laboratory test with
equipment that villa indicate not
only the ordinary qualities of the
gasoline, but will also correctly
register its knock rating through
the use of an octane testing ma-
chine. It is also proposed to re-


quire that each retail gasoline progressive step, already taken by
bump shall bear a sign revealing a number of states, w:il be in th
to the motorist the correct grade interest of all who buy gaosline in
of gasolline which he is purchas- the state of Florida."


ing, these signs io be supplied
and attached, by tne state frde of
cost.
'Te legality of such procedure
having been upheld by the attor-
n'ay general of Florida, it is the
intention of Nathan Mayo, com-
missioner of agriculture, to pro-
ceed with the fixing of grades and
the specification of pump signs as
rapidly as practicable.
"That all interested parties may
be heard." said Mr. Mayo in a let-
ter to The Star, "I am calling an
open conference to te held at the
capitol in Tallahassee on Wednes-
day, June 15, at 10 a. m., and I
am' inviting gaso:n'e wholesalers
andi retailers, pump operators and
any other citizen of Florida who
desires to be present on that day.
It is hoped that definite agree-
mrent will be reached regarding
the new stantahrcs and the new
system o' individual pump placard-
ing which the department will
outline at the meeting.
