Lucky Buck Auction



Is Creating Interest



Among Townspeople


CO-OPERATIVE MOVE BY BUSINESS HOUSES TO
STIMULATE PURCHASING AND COLLECT BACK
ACCOUNTS TAKES PUBLIC FANCY


The "Lucky Buck" Auction being presented the public by
a number of progressive merchants of Port St. Joe is taking
the fancy of the buying public and, incidentally, causing a
pickup in business among those business houses who are in
on this new and unique idea.
The whole plan is simplicity itself. For every dollar or
fraction of a dollar spent, either by purchasing or paid on back
accounts, "Lucky Bucks" are issued at the rate of 10 "Bucks"
for every dollar. Each participating merchant is providing a
number of articles which are to be auctioned off at the new
Port theater on Saturday, August 13, with Bill Turner acting
as auctioneer. At this auction sale the only money that will
-tbe legal tender is the "Lucky

that were brought up.
The meeting was opened with a brief introductory talk by
G. F. Kaser, president of the clhmber of commerce, explain-
ing the idea of the gathering, which was to discuss the plans
that are underway for the upbuilding of our city, the street
program, and the erection of the new civic center and beauti-
fying of Monument Park.
Mayor J. L. Sharit was the main speaker, explaining at

A SUPERB OPPORTUNITY
Those who have seen Port St. Joe develop
from a wide place in the road to a rapidly
growing little city know that the biggest
factor in this growth has been the readiness
of our people to pull together when oppor
tunities presented themselves to challenge
their spirit of civic loyalty. They have re
sponded whole-heartedly in the past, as wit
ness our modern water and sewage syst.-rms
our $125,000 municipal dock and our new
school building.
Another such opportunity confronts then
now. It is the $73,000 civic building to be
erected in Monument Park, work on which
has already started. Of the total cost of thi
magnificent building, $35,246 will be furnished
by the federal government and $37,764 by
the city. All but $3,500 of the city's portion
has been subscribed or guaranteed by friends
of Port St. Joe, either in the form of actual
cash or material. Now an appeal is being
made to the residents of the city to raise this
small amount by personal donations in order
that the final contract may be let which will
assure 4ltimat, completion of the civic center
before the date set for the Centennial Cele-
bration next December 7 to 10.
Main features of the Centennial will re-
volve about this building and, as has been
pointed out, the Centennial Celebration will
either make or break Port St. Joe. We don't
want it to break the future of the city and,
in order that the community's vital needs and
best interests be served, it is up to all of us,
individually and as a civic group, to see that
this small sum is forthcoming. Far-sighted
and public-spirited citizens can have but one
answer-this superb opportunity must be met
with Port St. Joe's traditional spirit.

SLIGHT WORD OF PRAISE FOR THE
TAXPAYER
Selection of a national symbol for the tax-
payer-perhaps a goat-is advocated by the
Eustis Lake Region, which goes on to say
that, like the goat, the taxpayer is never
praised or thanked, "although it is the tax-
payer who builds all the roads, pays the
teachers, builds all the bridges, provides all
the cost of governments and does many
things of a charitable nature in the way of
rent, food, fuel and medicine."
It's going a bit too far to say that the tax-
payer is "never"praised. "Seldom" would be
a better word, because State Comptroller Lee
did praise Tampa merchants recently for
paying the gross receipts tax which has been
sternly resisted by merchants in other cities.
He pointed out that the effective way to pro-
test against taxes is to protest to the legis-
lature which sets the levies by law. Until
taxpayers remember this while electing legis-
lators, they will long be the "goats.'.-Tampa
Daily Times.

A man and a mule can feed each other on
ten acres of ground in Florida.-Times-Union.
It would take more than ten acres of ground
in which to let a mule feed us.

you may die at the hands of a reckless auto-

OUT WITH THE MOSQUITOES
We don't like to come right out and let
the world know that we have mosquitoes in
Port St. Joe-but we do have them. Of
course, we do not have as many as other
communities, and they are perfect ladies and
gentlemen, always asking permission before
they stick their proboscis into one-but
nevertheless they are mosquitoes.
The number of these pests could be re-
diced materially if all householders would
co-operate to remove their breeding places.
All refuse should be destroyed or so ar-
ranged as not to harbor this pest or afford
him. a breeding place. All tin cans and other
discarded receptacles capable of holding wa-
ter should be destroyed or turned upside
down. ligh weeds and thick grass should be
cut and standing pools of water should be
drained off or be oiled.
We are lucky that we do not have malaria
in Port St. Joe, but as long as we have mos-
quitoes in large numbers there is always the
possibility that this disease may gain a foot-
hold here. If we want mosquitoes, we can
have them. If we do not, we can greatly
discourage them by co-operation, even if we
can not eradicate them entirely.
Let's do everything we can to eliminate
them as far as possible. The health and hap-

and water system capable of tak-
ing care of our city until it grows
to be approximately 10,000 people;
a 50-acre park in the residential
section that will be, when com-
pleted, a beauty spot and one that
we all can be proud of; sQft water
for all of our citizens; and a beau-
tiful wide boulevard connecting up
the residential section with the
business section.
Or. in other words, we have an
opportunity to secure a tremendous
amount of help at a minimum cost
to ourselves in order to lay out a
model city and carry on accord-
ingly, and the actual cost to the
citizens will be practically insig-
nificant.
We would like to call your at-
tention to the fact that when our
plans are carried' out we will have
a total park area of approximately
75 acres between the Wewahitchka
highway and the Monument, and
approximately 2500 building lots.
This, we think, wii give you an
idea of what a beautiful city we
may have if we all pull together.

district must cost for material and
labor at least $1000 each. The or-
dinance becomes effective 30 days
from date of passage.
The ordinance providingg for a
street tax of S2 on all men be-
tween 21 and 45 years of age came
up for final passage and received
unanimous approval. The chief of
police was named to collect the
tax and the ordinance will become
effective September 1. It provides
a fine not exceeding $10 or 30 days
in jail for those refusing to pay.
The board talked over the prob-
lem of from four to six individual
residences receiving water from
one meter and all using one sewer
connection. The commissioners de-
cided something must be done
about this practice as. it was
pointed out, if this became a regu-
lar custom it would be impossible
for the city to pay off the munici-
pal water and sewe' system bonds.
The consensus of opinion was that
in such cases a minimum monthly
charge of $2 should be made for
each residence using the meter or
sewer connection.

conle out and hear the concerts
and indicate by your presence
that you approve of our having a
band in Port St. Joe.
The band went to Hosford for
the Townsend, convention Thurs-
day of last week and was there hit
of the day. They were dined and
ftted and given a right hearty
welcome. This is all good adver-
tising for Port St. Joe.

next Sunday evening at 5 o'clock
and hear the following program:
"Little Rastus," characteristic; "I
Love You Truly," waltz; "Cour-
age," march; "Mischa," waltz;

March"; "Stardust," fox trot;
"Regiment Band," march; "An-
nette," waltz; "At Sight," march;

'RIGHT AND WRONG' SHOWN
IN HEALTH UNIT DISPLAY
A display in the show window
of tie Danley furniture store by
the Gulf county health unit is at-
tracting considerable attention. It
depicts "right" and "wrong" meth-
ods of sanitation about the farm
home. : L..
Two small scale homes are in
the window-one having the porch
screened, rain barrel covered,
yard clean, a lift pump, screened
chicken yard, hog pen and one of
the model privies located well
away from the house and vege-
rable garden.
The other home has an un-
screened porch with a baby lying
in a crib, open to flies, a dog lick-
ing the nipple of the baby's bottle,
hogs and chickens in the yard, an
uncovered rain barrel, a pool of
mosquito-breeding water near the
house, an old-time open well with
the time honored moss- covered
bucket, and an open-back privy
which drains directly into the
vegetable garden.
The display is neatly labeled
with small placards indicating
the right and wrong methods, and
should go a long way in inculcat-
ing the big idea into the minds of
all who view it-sanitation and
cleanliness pay in the long run.

towns rendering the most service
have no tax sources."
Continuing, he said: "I believe
real estate should stand a fair
part of the tax bill, but it should
not be burdened. That is why we
cannot continue to shift taxes from
one shoulder to another and prog-
ress-we must revise our entire
tax structure.
"I shall ask a number of house
members to bind themselves to-
gether to study finances and taxes,

and co-operation to whichever man
should win, pulling together for
the welfare of the state.
