ST, JOE LUMBER &

EXPORTCOMPANY

NAME NEW FIRM

MILL OWNED BY SHAMROCK
AND BLOUNTSTOWN MEN
HAS LARGE RESOURCES

The Kenney Lumber company,
operating in Blountstown for many
years and which recently started
moving their mill to Port St. Joe,
will be known in future as the St.
Joe Lumber & Export company,
the owners being Basil E. Ken-
ney, Sr., and Basil E. Kenney, Jr.,
of Blountstown, M. L. Fleishel, C.
L. Effinger and J. E. Crosby of
shamrock.
The sawmill of the new com-
pany, which is located just out-
side the city limits near the new
canal at Highalna View, is rapidly
taking on shape and it is antici-
pated that it will be in operation
some time in November. It is a
single band and resaw type and
can handle timber up to 45 feet in
length. Capacity will be approxi-
mately 60.000 feet per eight-hour
day and will be operated 88 hours
per week on a double-shift basis.
Mr. Fleishel, president and gen-
eral manager of the Putnam Lum-
ber company of Shamrock is well
known in the lumber industry.
The Messrs. Kenney are well and
favorably known in this section
from their operations at Blounts-
town.
The new company has mer-
chantable timber resources of
more than 400,000,000 feet of pine,
cypress and hardwoods, and con-
sists of all the sawmill size tim-
ber on the DuPont lands in Gulf.

ties, the bulk of the 500,000. acres
being in this county. All"of this
huge tract of timberrand is under
forest management, supplying in
part the pulpwood for the St. Joe
Paper company mill in this city.
The Texas Oil company tract,
consisting of 17.000 acres of virgin
yellow pine and cypress has been
purchased by this company, as
well as the Lister tract containing
about 30,000,000 teet of long leaf

Popular Pharmacy Owner Expand-
ing By Opening Second Store
Within Next Ten Days

Adolph LeHardy. owner of Le-
Hardy's Pharmacy on the corner
of Reid avenue and Third street,
is expressing hi s confidence in
the future of Port St. Joe by open-
ing, within the next ten days, a
second drug store, to be located

now waiting upon delivery of a
modern soda fountain and other
fixtures before opening the store.
This new store will be up-to-date
in every respect and will carry a
complete stock. Residents of
Highland View are lavish in their
praise of Mr. LeHardy for the es-
tablishment of a store in their sec-
tion and from all indications the
new venture will operate upon a.
profitable basis from the opening

DISAGREE OVER MARSHAL
Appointment of C. S. Dishong of Hardee
county as the new United States marshal for
South Florida seems not to sit well with a
number of newspaper editors (they probably
were advocating appointment of someone
from their own bailiwick for the job), while
others (more than likely having private axes
to grind) laud President Roosevelt on his ap-
pointment.
Says the Avon Park Times: "Announce-
ment was made this morning of the appoint-
ment of Sheriff Dishong of Hardee county as
the new U. S. marshal for Southern Florida.
This has been rumored for some time, with
Senator Claude Pepper given 'credit' for en-
gineering the deal. We can't say we can con-
gratulate either Pepper or Dishong, and af-
ter hearing some of the remarks passed, be-
lieve Pepper would have pleased a lot more
people if he had made another choice."
The Florida Advocate, at Wauchula. sings
the praises of Dishong to high heaven, end-
ing up with: "We say the president made no
mistake in following Senator Pepper's recom-
mendation in appointing Chester S. Dishong
United States marshal. Keep your eye on this
Wauchulan and you'll see him establish a
fine record as a member of the government's
law enforcement division."
And then, on the other hand, Nate Broking
,of the Highlands County News at Sebring
.contends just the opposite: "Every one makes
.mistakes at some time or another, and Sena-
,tor Pepper is entitled to make this one. How-
eever, we want it understood here and now
that although we have carried the banner
for Claude since back in '31, we are not carry-
ing the perfume bottle for him when he
walks into that kind of situation." Which
seems to indicate that in some quarters the
appointment carries a rank odor.
The Tampa Tribune (perhaps with one of
the above-mentioned axes to sharpen) offers:
"Sheriff Dishong has the experience, the
stamina and the strict sense of duty to make
an excellent United States marshal."
Personally, the editor of The Star is not
acquainted with the new marshal for South
Florida, but when newspaper editors in widely
scattered sections argue pro and con, there's
a nigger, Or a polecat, or some kind of a var-
mint in the woodpile, and it won't be long
before it is brought to light.

LET'S GO GET THAT DAMN DAM
Editor C. F. Hanlon of the Gulf County
Breeze, published at Wewahitchka, has long
advocated a dam for the Dead Lakes, that


paradise of which every follower of the pisca-
torial art dreams, and in last week's issue of
the Breeze, has this to say:
"With the spend-lend program of the gov-
ernment getting under way, we wonder if
the Gulf county planning board is busying
itself to secure the maximum money for pub-
lic improvements in our county. We have in
mind a project with a double benefit, that of
extending the Wewahitchka-Panama City
highway east to Tallahassee. The bridge
across the Dead Lakes could be built on the
spillway type, and would thus serve the
double purpose of a bridge and a dam for
holding a head of water in the Dead Lakes
and making of this great body of water a
fishing place with an inexhaustible supply of
fish natural to these waters, such as bass,
speckled perch, shell-crackers, bream, jack-
fish and the lowly catfish."
Yeah, man! Let's all hop on the planning
board with great gusto and both feet and get
our share of the billions that are being handed
out right and left. And besides, we're get-
ting doggone tired of going to the Dead
Lakes on fishing trips and two-thirds of the
time finding that the fish aren't biting good
because the water is rising or the water is
too low.
With a dam at the mouth of the lakes we
could always be assured that the water would
be just right and that we could depend upon
hauling in enough fish to more than cover the
bottom of our skillet.
We sincerely believe that if we went after
this dam-everybody in Gulf county-we
could get it. ,Extension of the Panama City-
Tallahassee highway' would not necessarily
have to be included in the project, but the
dam could be so built that it would care for
this highway in the future.
Fishing and hunting bring thousands of
sportsmen annually to Gulf county, and any-
thing we can do to increase the pleasures of
these sports should be done, for it means hard
cash in the jeans of all of us.


AT GETTYSBURG
Lincoln's spirit pervades all thought of
Gettysburg. His compassion and his faith irl
"government of the people" have caused what
said there to be longer remembered than the
hate and horror of battle. President Roose-
velt did well in his address at Gettysburg to
bespeak for Americans in today's struggles
the wisdom and'humanity of Lincoln.
There will be differences of opinion as to
the exact nature of the conflict today; there
can be no difference of opinion about the
need foi- charity of thought toward opponents
and for faith in the "peaceful process of popu-
lar government." Mr. Roosevelt said the cur-
rent struggle is near to being won. Most of
the bitterness following the Civil War arose
from the failure of those who won to act with
restraint and temperateness. Today Ameri-
cans can be wiser.-Christian Science Moni-
tor.

TO AVOID DOMESTIC TROUBLE
A sample paper folder from the Virginia
Paper company coming to our desk today has
this to say in order to avoid domestic trouble:
Don't ask about your wife's bills when
smoking a 25-cent cigar.
Don't try to dodge household tasks by
claiming your time is valuable.
Always speak in a quite voice.
Have your club bills and notices seit to
the office.
Don't read the travel folders you find at
home. They were placed there to trap you.
Knock other women or keep quiet.
And the office devil piped up: "You can
forget the first five, but be sure to remem-
ber that last one. If you wan't to praise any
woman, praise your wife."

A good way to aid in paying the expense
of government would be to put a thumb tax
on hitch hikers.


Stardust and

Moonshine


By The Other Fellow


A paper salesman dropped in at
The Star office the other day
while I was conferring with Editor
Bill. From his tailored shirt and
his matching tie to the tip of his
$10 shoes he looked like Mr.
Prosperity in person. As
I looked him over, I thought: "It
takes money to keep up like that.
He must work for a good house.
Other printers must be buying a
lot of paper from him."
Another mental reaction might
have been: "This man dresses too
well for these times. He must
make too much profit. I'll bet the
stock he sells is the cheapest ob-
tainable." This would
have been counteracted by the
fact that the man rpnres'nted a


from the don't-care class.
The uniforms were all alike. Each
had the same amount of money.
But when one group snapped out
of that place you knew they were
somebody going places and that
various and sundry things were
about to happen. But when the
slumpers dragged out, their suits
looked sloppily awry their r)1I
puttees weren't evenly wound and
--oh. well!"
And since I am such a good lis-
tener, the editor proceeded to
drive home this truth: "When
you hold up your head and your
standards and do' your best, some-
one down the street who admires
you tries to measure up, others
who like him do the same, and
soon the whole community is liv-
ing on a higher level in
several particulars."'
Maybe he's right. Guess
I'll send my suit to' the pressers.

ELECTRIC TOASTER WOULD MAKE BREAKFAST

TOAST FOR A WEEK AND NEVER BURN A

SINGLE PIECE!


Electricity works so cheaply and ef-
ficiently nothing can compete with it or
take its place. Just for the price of one
loaf of bread, for instance, electricity


will make toast for the average family
for two weeks. Not that the bread isn't
well worth the price-bu, this simple
comparison does illustrate how much
electricity gives you for very little money.

Pine Pulp Industry's Future De-
pends On Preservation,
Foresters Aver

The government forest service
has issued an appeal to the south-
ern coastal area, home of a rapidly
expanding pine pulp industry, to
stand guard over its timberlandss.
The forest service does not
doubt the industry's value to
states in which it is located as an
outlet for low grade material,
tonnage for railroads and ports,
employment for thousands.
But a forest service bulletin
says the pulpwood capacity of
southern mills in a single year,
3,900,000 cords, would make an un-
broken stack four feet high and
four feet wide from New York to
San Francisco, back again, and
then down the coast to Florida.
The new industry has served,
therefore, forest 'experts said, to
emphasize the South's already
pressing need for preservation
and restocking of woodland re-
sources.
Southern states from the Caro-
linas around the coast to Texas
now have 38 pine mills, and there
is talk of others. A recent, survey
showed the resultant 1937 pulp-
wood drain was 2,335,790 cords.
The problem is localized. Gen-
erally speaking, timber is drawn
from within a 200-mile radius of
the mill. Danger spots, therefore,
will be centered largely along the
coastal regions, where the ma-
jority of southern inis have been
located to take advantage of cheap
water transportation.
The answer? Foresters in Wash-
ington apparently agree on at
least the initial two or three steps
-fire protection, re-stocking, no
cutting of small trees.
The obvious first, they say, is
fire protection. C. Stowell Smith,
a government forester who has
surveyed the southern region, de-
clared elimination of forest fires
alone might be enough to take
care of the whole situation.
-Spokesmen for the service said
mill operators apparently were
becoming aware of their part of
the responsibility.
The forest service had prepared
for southern state legislatures a
draft of a model law to protect
forest lands. Under terms of this
legislation, timber regulations are
to be left to the state forest com-


mission or corresponding agency,
which would act upon the advice
of county committees. Its purpose
would be to minimize tire losses,
to provide for restocking and to
prohibit the cutting of small trees.
Southern climate, soil and other
conditions, Smith said, are such
that forests will re-stock them-
selves if given the chance. The
problem, therefore, is a long-range
one.
To stress the importance of tim-
ber resources, foresters call at-
tention to the fact 59 per cent of
the South's land area is in forest
growth of one stage or another,
while only 35 per cent is used for
agriculture, and six per cent de-
voted to other uses.
Three states, they add, have
been for two centuries the sources
of 60 to 80 per cent of the world's
supply of naval stores-turpen-
tine, rosin and pitch.
