The speaking at the band she]
Wednesday evening was slIghtl
disrupted' by reason of inability
of the speakers to reach Port St
Joe in time. The band entertained
with a few numbers, after whicl
many left in order to hear the
returns of the heavyweight chamr
pionship bout-though from th
length of it they were sadly dis
appointed.
The speakers arrived just prio
to this, after a headlong drive
from Pensacola so as to read
here and not disappoint their an
dience. It was decided to adjourn
to the Black Cat cafe for supper
of the members of the chamber o
commerce and thei% guests, an(
hold a round-tab;e discussion o
the subjects allotted the speakers
Colee Unable To Attend
A delightful supper was served
after which" Mayor J. L. Shari'
gave the address of welcome and
then turned the gavel: over to T
W. Wilson as master of cere
monies. Mr. Wilson announced
that a message had been received
from Harold Colee stating his in
ability to get here owing to seri
ous illness in his family. Ralph
Grassfield, secretary and manager
of the Florida State Chamber ol
Commerce, came to bat for Colee
and gave an absorbing talk about
the things that are being done for
Florida by the state and local
chambers for the promotion of
better industries, better tourist
trade and accommodations, better
highway systems and the mineral
development of our state.
Brown Tells of Exhibits
Earl Brown, vice-president and
manager of Florida National Ex-
hibits, was next introduced:, and
gave a very comprehensive talk
about Florida exhibits at the New
York World's Fair next year. He
also gave some very fine ideas
along which to work for making
Florida's own celebration as great
a success as possible. Mayor Shar-
it, in his address of welcome, had
spoken of the various plans for
the Centennial and of his efforts
toward financing it. Mr. Brown
furthered these remarks by stating
what was being done to publicize
the celebration and called atten-
tion to the articles being printed
in many newspapers regarding
this state celebration of the cen-
tennial of the adoption of the con-
stitution.

WORK PROGRESSING
ON PARK ROADWAY

Work of laying out two 38-foot
roadways in Monument Park, pre-
paratory to construction of the
573,000 community center, is pro-
ceeding rapidly. Trees and brush
have been cut and grades thrown
up and soon the gravel will be
spread.
The present road to the monu-

Next Friday

Manager Bill Turner announces
that a road show, Sollie Child's
"Follies Tropical," with a cast of
35 persons, will be presented' at
the Port theater next Friday.
The feature picture for that
date will be "From the City," star-
ring Joe Penner and Kay Sutton.
"The release date on this picture

before it is officially released."
The picture on at the Port to-
day is "Merry-Go-Round of 1938,"
a ten-star fun frolic. Tomorrow

AUCTION OF LOTS AT
BEACON HILL JULY 2

J. S. Patrick, in this issue of
The Star, is announcing an auc-
tion sale of 100 lots at his Bea-
con Hill subdivision to be held on
July 2, with Colonel Henry as auc-
tioneer.
A free fish dinner will be
served at 12 o'clock and the auc,
tion will be immediately after.


DECORATE FOR
JULY FOURTH

In view of the fact that a
program of celebration for
the city is in formation for
Independence Day, it is hoped
that business hours and
homes will be suitably decor-
ated with flags and bunting
in order to make this event
stand out and be a credit to
our city.
The American Legion can
supply both flags and bunt-
ing if orders are placed at
at once to give time for the
order to go through. Quick
action is necessary, for the
time is short in which to ma-
ture plans.
By request of the committee.

THIEVES ENTER

COSTIN'S STORE

REMOVE GOODS TO VALUE OF
$500; ENTRY IS GAINED
THROUGH SKYLIGHT

Gaining entry by removing a
pane of glass from the skylight,
thieves entered the C. G. Costin
department store Monday night
and made off with goods valued at
approximately $500. After enter-
ing through the skylight the loot
was removed by opening the back
door and apparently loading it in
an automobile.
A check-up Tuesday morning by
Mr. Costin revealed the following
taken: Ten men's suits, two pair
of special-order trousers, a dozen
pair of leather work gloves, two
dozen men's shirts, six metal suit-
cases, several dozen' pair of socks
and about a dozen pairs of shoes
and oxfords. He is offering a re-
ward of $25 for apprehension and
conviction of the party or parties
responsible for the robbery.
Sheriff Byrd Parker and Chief
of Police Troy Jones, investigat-
ing the case, found footprints at
the base of a ladder which had
been placed against 'the rear wall
of the building to climb to the
roof. This was the only clue.

CAN WE GET A HOSIERY MILL?


HELLO, SUCKERS
The Miami Herald, which never misses a
chance to wail that Dade county is gettirig
the worst of the gas tax division, thinks it
has figured out a way to get even.
"Dade county," the Herald claims, "has it
within herself to teach the politicians a les-
son. If it will ever awaken to the fact that
it controls the largest voting strength in the
itate and will use that force at the ballot box,
it will soon end the political discrimination
againstt her of which the unequal and unjust
distribution of the gas fund is an outstanding
example."
11 the IHerald ever awakens to the fact that
onll the legislature can change the gas tax
distribution, it-wxill realize that it is laying
ain egg when it tells. people in Miami that
their votes can do something about it. Their
votes don't elect representatives in the legis-
lature from Lee, Collier and Hendry counties

near an ltbuidance of cheap, fresh water,
and having available shipping facilities-all
of which are to be found in Port St. Joe if
the soil of Gulf county is suitable for the cul-
tivation of ramie.
Ramie, which probably came first from
India or the Malay Peninsula, has been
known through history as far back as 5600
years ago, when the Pharaohs were making
ropes and cables of it to haul and hoist the
great stone blocks that formed the pyramids
in Egypt. Fiber from the same plant was also
used to weave the startlingly beautiful cloth
that bound the mummies of these same
Pharaohs whose bodies were entombed so
many centuries ago.
Let us at least look into the possibilities
of growing ramie in this section and if the
soil and climate are found suitable we will be
in a position to secure another manufactur-
ing industry with its payroll.


Let's all join in and do our utmost to put
over in a big way the Fourth of July celebra-
tion being sponsored by the American Legion
post and the chamber of commerce. Should
this effort prove to be a dud it will be very
discouraging to our civic organizations and
create an unfavorable feeling among those
visitors from out of town who come here
with the expectation of spending an enjoy-
able and entertaining day.


Half a million persons will be added to the
WPA during the coming month. For many
it will mean only a transition from a sitting
to a leaning position.-Hartford Courant.


Great Britain, as has been the custom for
a number of years past, again passed their
semi-annual installment on the war debt to
the United States, but they did not do so
with their customary vigor. The reason?
With a war ready to pop at any minute in
Europe there would be a need for American
money to keep hostilities going-and it is
not available, under the Johnson act, to any
nation in default on their war debt to this
country. The money would be available in
Wall Street, but as long as the Johnson act
remains in force Wall Street is closed to the
British, and should a war break this would
be an immensely serious handicap. We pre-
dict that should a war start, Great Britain
will take immediate steps to reach a settle-
ment with the United States in regard to her
war debt.


Editors are not so supernaturally smart as
some people think they are. A lady writing
the editor of the Baltimore Sun said it em-
barrassed her to hang out her "little tidbits
of intimate apparel" in the backyard where
the neighbors could see them and asked what
to do about it, and he didn't know.-Macon

the old long-handled red underwear.


Some mighty surprising things have hap-
pened and can happen again. Just suppose a
third party puts in a president in 1940?-
Jacksonville Times-Union. Well, the German-
American Bund might put in Adolf Hitler.
That would be mighty surprising.

PLANT COMMISSIONER
WARNS TREE OWNERS
OF QUACK "REMEDY"

Here's the latest "discovery" to
be exposed by the state plant
board:
A mixture of zinc, copper and
iron compounds and a bit of anti-
mony. costing bul a few cents,
which, according to those retail-
ing it at $5 a pound, will clean all
trees of insects and diseases. All
the tree owner has to- do, accord-
ing to the salesman, is to bore a
few holes in the trunk of his tree
and pour soume of the powder into
them. Presto! And gone are the,
insects and diseases! The mixture"
would even make healthy trees
healthier!
But, as those who bought some
of the stuff found out, it was just
anoth'or nostrum and one that was
harmful to trees. Not only are
zinc, copper and iron ineffective
in running off the bugs, but the
antimony is positively harmful to
plant life.
The Florida Experiment Station
at Gainesville obtained some of
;te "new discovery" and its an-
alysis revealed the composition of
ihe mixture. Dr. Wilmon Newell,
plant commissioner with the state
plant board, warns tie public that
ti is just another nostrum. "Own-
ers of fruit and ornamental trees
';iould be cautious about invest-
i-' in new discoveries and mar-
velous cure-alls for tree ailments,"
he says.

METHODIST W. M. S. IN
MEETING AT CHURCH
The Methodist Woman's Mis-
sionary Society met Monday af-
ternoon at the church in a joint
session. The Susaunah Wesley
circle conducted the program for
the afternoon, the theme being
"Building the Kingdom of God In
Japan."
After an introduction of the
subject, "Indebtedness of Women
to Jesus" by Mrs. George Patton,
the devotional was led by Mrs.
Edwin Ramsey and Mrs. Robert
Haley. Two hymns, "Savior Like a
Shepherd Lead Us" and "Lead On
O King Eternal," were sung.
In the inspirational talks given
by Mrs. Patton and Mrs. Boyd,
stress was placed on the import-
ance of kindergarten and the
training of teachers for this work
in Japan, also on Bible women.
A skit presented by Mesdames
Ester Temple, George Winches-
ter. Smith, Roy Gibson and Patty
Lovett, brought out very cleverly
reasons why members should sub-
scribe to the Wornod Outlook, with
the result that Mrs. Roy Gibson
was appointed superintendent for
this magazine ani several mem-
bers promised to subscribe. The
program, after a duet by Mrs.
Rain-s'ey and Mrs. Boyer, was con-
cluded with the Lord's Prayer re-
peated in unison.
Mrs. R. R. Hodges, chairman of
the Christian social relations
work, made an apeal for contri-
butions of clothing for the box
that is to be mailed Saturday to

At the close of the meeting

Should July 2nd Be

Independence Day?

Although July 4th is officially recognized as
Independence Day, there are some who claim
that July 2nd is really the day to be cele-
brated. It seems that one Richard H. Lee in-
troduced a resolution declaring "these United
Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free
and independent states."
This resolution was adopted on July 2, 1776.
Three delegates voted against it. John Adams
on the next day declared: "The second day
of July, 1776, will be celebrated by succeed-
ing generations as the great anniversary
day."

BAND PROGRAM

IS RAINED OUT

HOUR CHANGED TO 4 O'CLOCK
FOR NEXT SUNDAY; FINE
PROGRAM PROMISED

The band shell programs in the
waterfront park finally got away
to a short-lived start last Sunday.
The playing began promptly at
3 o'clock Sunday with heavy
clouds hanging overhead and a
storm seeming to threaten from
all points of the compass. After
three numbers had been rendered
a sudden high wind and rain
swept in from the southwest, and
both the band and audience broke
into a wild scramble for cover. A
large number were present and
enjoyed the music as far as it
went.
Hour for next sunday's concert
has been changed to 4 p. m., in
the belief that that time will suit
the public better. The program
follows: March, "Regiment Band";
"Mischa Waltz"; march, "Prog-
ress"; characteristic, "Little Ras-
tus"; "I Love You Truly"; march,
'Success"; "When I Grow Too Old
To Dream"; religious "Hymn
Tune"; march, "Headway."
Everybody is invited.

this a mecca for tourists and his
desire to bring a large crowd ol

Cleveland fair and how much he
added to the prestige of the Flor

City Has Bright Prospects
J. Godfrey Dreka, a merchant ol
DeLand and vice-president of the
Florida State Chamber of Comi
merce, told of frequent trips
through Port St. Joe, of how much
it had grown, and of the bright
prospects for future development
here. He said' some people were
criticizing the odor coming from
the mill as offensive, and then
stated that DeLand and many
other cities of Florida would be
glad to smell it if they could have
the industrial development that
goes with it. He complimented
Port St. Joe on its rapid growth
and pleasant geographical loca-
tion. He also cited the splendid
co-operation of the DuPont inter-
ests with those who live near
their projects.
C. A. Tovey, of the chamber of

ticipated development of the har-

POET'S CORNER


IT SPOILS A MAN TO MARRY
HIM
Believe, dear girls, this maxim
true,
In precept and in practice, too,
That it spoils a man to marry
him!
The creatures never ought to go
Beyond a honeymoon or so-
If they survive that, they will
show
That it spoils a man to marry
him.
When first he knelt before your
feet,
How soft his words! His looks
how sweet!
But it spoils a man to marry
him.
When once a late consent he'll
wring,
And get your finger in the ring;
Oh! then he's quite another thing.
It spoils a man to marry him.
JHave you a fancy? You must drop
it;
A will it may be! You must lop it,
Before you think of marrying.
And even if you venture then,
-Select the very worst of men:
If not, nine chances out of ten,
'Twill spoil the brute to marry
him.
-The Other Fellow,


interestingly of the development
of the paper industry and his con-
nection with paper-making in the
United States and Canada. He
said that in all his experience he
had never seen such fine paper-
making machinery as is in use at
the St. Joe Paper company mill.
He spoke feelingly of conservation
in order to keep our supply of
pulpwood constant, and of refor-
esttation to follow up for future
generations. He compared our
ability of growing a pulp tree in
from 15 to 20 years with that of
Canada, Minnesota and New York,
where it takes 50 years.
Mill Manager Likes City
Mr. Kidd brought forth a tre-
mendous, round of applause when
he stated that he liked it here so
well that he is moving his family
here immediately. The chamber of
commerce and The Star welcomes
Mr. Kidd to our city and extends
to him the invitation to engage in
helpful promotion.
Following Mr. Kidd's talk, the
meeting adjourned to the Port Inn
where Earl Brown's men had set
up a part of the diorama exhibit
that will be used at the world's
fair in New York and he explained
the workings of it ,the timing and
told of the way the crowds wih
be handled. He also showed a
laRge tinted drawing of the Flor-
ida exhibit building for the fair,
and described the placing of ex-
hibits, the lighting and publicity
attractions, etc. Mr. Brown was
also loud in his praise of the Port
St. Joe sector as being about the
best he had ever visited for hunt-
ing and fishing. The meeting then
adjourned, having .asted until 1
o'clock.

- NAVAL STORES EXEMPTED
FROM PAY-HOUR BILL

f The compromise wage-hour bill
provides complete exemption for
the :South's naval stores industry,
- although the measure contains no
mention of it by name.
The bill provides exemption of
"agriculture" should include com-
Smodities defined by section 15-G
Sof the agricultural marketing act
of 1929. That section reads, in
part:
"As used in this act, the term
agricultural commodity includes,
in addition to other agricultural
commodities, crude gum (oleores-
in) from a living tree, and the fol-
lowing products as processed by
the original producer of the crude
gum from which derived: gum
spirits of turpentine and gum ros-
in as defined in, the naval stores
act approved March 3, 1923."
Naval stores, therefore, will be
exempt not only from the even-
tual 40-cent minimum wage and
the 40-hour maximum work week,
but from the first year's 25-cent
minimum and 44-hour maximum
as well.
