a complete surprise for the band,
as they .had not been informed
where they were to play, but only
to meet at the postoffice at nine
o'clock. The chamber of commerce
has been sponsoring the band for
some time, pfirchasing music, pay-
ing expenses of trips, and has
erected a fine stage in the park
for concerts. This was the first
time the band had played for the
chamber and the members cov-
ered themselves with glory in the
manner each rendered their part
of the program. They played very
difficult selections, and played
them well.

The drive by the Port St. Joe
Chamber of Commerce to raise the
$3500 lacking on the $73,000 build-
ing fund for the new community
center building got under way
Wednesday and yesterday all in-
dications pointed to complete suc-
cess.
It was reported by the commit-
tee in charge of the drive that
practically all merchants and busi-
ness men of the city have agreed
-to contribtue one day's wages to
raising the money, which is the
basis upon which the fund is be-
ing raised, and that employes of
the Apalachicola Northern Rail-
road company and the St. Joe
Telephone & Telegraph company
have signed up 100 per cent.
A canvass of employes of the
St. Joe Paper company and the St.
Joe Land & Development com-
pany also indicate that these con-
cerns will report in 100 per cent
strong.
At this rate, the $3500 will be
raised in short order and comple-
tion of the community center will
be assured.

WHAT! NO RABIES!
The Star, on May 6, published a notice
signed by Chief of Police Troy Jones to the
effect that all dogs within the city limits
of Port St. Joe should be brought to the city
hall for inoculation against rabies.
This notice was published in the interest
of safety and for the public welfare.
Now we are informed by the Vivisection
Investigation League, Inc., that "there is na-
tionwide but needless fear of rabies."
"We have frank statements," says the Vivi-
section League, "made by recognized authori-
ties, physicians and veterinarians, to the ef-
fect:
"1. That rabies is an exceedingly rare dis-
ease.
"2. That harmless fits are declared to be
rabies.
_"3. That 'positive' reports (the claim the
animal was rabid based on laboratory exami-
nations) are unscientific and unreliable.
"4. That anti-rabies inoculation of ani-
mals is unnecessary, and instead of prevent-
ing this rare disease is a means of spreading
it.
"5. That the Pasteur treatment may cause
paralysis or death.
"6. That 'rabies scares' and compulsory
inoculations are often the result of lack of
knowledge or are artfully conducted cam-
paigns."
Probably the Vivisection League is acting
on what they believe to be the best of hu-
manitarian motives, but until such scientific
organizations such as the state board of
health agree with the facts set out above, we
will continue to advocate inoculation of all
dogs in Port St. Joe against rabies.
Last week in lMulberry nine people and a
number of dogs were bitten by a dog, and
when the head of the animal was taken to
Tampa for examination by the state health
department, the presence of rabies was dis-
covered. When this positive diagnosis was re-
ceived a supply of anti-rabies serum was se-
cured in -order that the P'asteur treatment
might be begun on the list of victims.
VWe do( not want such an occurrence in Port
St. Joe, and we believe that the majority of
the residents of our city will feel safer in
the knowledge that a strict campaign of in-
oculation of dogs has been exercised by civic
authorities, and that all local animals have
been given preventive treatment against a
malady which not only is a protection to the
pets, but which also tends to protect children
and adults from the death which results from
infection caused by the bite of rabid dogs.
No rabies? Perhaps not. Bit inoculation
of dogs is no greater hardship on the ani-
mals than inoculation of children against in-
fectious diseases.


Wonder what's happened to the idea of
cleaning up thle old St. Joseph cemetery and
putting it in shape for sight-seers who will
attend the Centennial Celebration? Four
months isn't very long in which to do the
work and have it in the shape it ought to be.

Where's that fellow who's been complain-
ing about "no rain?"


WHAT ABOUT OUR CELEERATIOUi ?
Perhaps many do not realize that time is
slipping past rapidly-as time has a habit of
doing-and that exactly four months from
last Sunday Port St. Joe is due to be host to
the entire state at a Centennial Celebratioti
commemorating the 100th anniversary of the
signing of Florida's first constitution at old
St. Joseph in 1838.
Are the committees appointed to care for
various activities functioning, or are they
dead on their feet? As far as we can dis-
cover, they are in the latter condition.
There is work to be done-and lots of it-
and if some action is not taken immediately
the celebration will be a dreary affair and not
up to what, in our first enthusiasm, we had
visions of its being.
I,et's start the wheels turning by a general
meeting of all committee chairmen in order
that we can find what, if anything, has been
done, -and if not, to start doing it.
time's s a'wastin'. Let's get the lead out of
our pants and go places and do things!

INCLINING THE TWIG
We overheard a conversation recently be-
tween a man and his young son which brings
up a fine point of ethics and child training
which is often overlooked. The son, who had
just passed the age of twelve, had come home
from the village picture show, to which he
had gained admission for ten cents, when the
charge for children over twelve should have
been twenty-five cents.
"How did it happen," the father asked,
"that now that you are past twelve years old
you were able to get in for a dime when the
price is twenty-five cents?"
"I did not tell the man I was past twelve
years old," the boy said. 'He thinks I am
still twelve years old."
"Well, Jack," the father replied, "after din-
ner you go up and tell Mr. Williams that you
had a birthday recently and that you are no-w
past twelve, and should pay a quarter."
The boy brought up the usual arguments
and objections, which the father patiently and
carefully answered. It ended by the boy -go-
ing back to the proprietor of the picture
house with fifteen cents.
Trivial? Perhaps. But our guess is that
when that boy grows up that he will have
grounded in his life the thought that there
is as much virtue in honesty in little things
as there is in big things. A thing that many
parents do not realize in training young peo-
ple is that one can't condone one dishonest
act and justify another. Tlhe young mind does
not differentiate. If it is all right to beat the
picture show proprietor it is equally com-
mendable to beat the grocer, the clothing
merchant and the bank.
Thle old maxim, "train up a child in the way
he should go and when he becomes old he will
not depart from it," is still true. I'arents often
th oughtlessly confuse a child's thinking by
placing hiniii in the position of c(eciding on
\which dishonesty is permissible and what dis-
honesty is not permissible. It is simpler and
better practice to be consistent and teach that
no dishonesty is permissible.--anford Herald.

My effusion last week on the
pests who insist on talking aloud
in the movies brought forth com-

and it met with much approval.

pessimist I'm not. I can

can even laugh at a joke on my-
self.
But these movre-talkers do get
my goat. Peanut-eaters in movie
theaters are bad. Children who in-
nocently ask questions are worse..
But the aatut wno turns
the motion picture show into a
spooning parlor, a gossip rendez-

to the superlative "worst."
Some of them are so hard-boiled
that a stern glance makes about
as much impression upon them as
the brush of a butterfly's wing

FREEDOM VITAL
SAYS PUBLISHER

Press, Religion, SpBech and As.
sembly Are Four Cornerstones

Freedom of the press, religion,
speech and assembly are the four
cornerstone, upon which Ameri-
can liberty rests. Arthur Hays
Sulzberger, publisher of the New
York Times, said recently.
"We must keep uppermost in
the minds of the American people
that freedom of press, freedom of
religion, freedom of speech and
freedom of assembly are the four
cornerstones upon which liberty
rests. We must make it plain that
if one of these cornerstones is de-
molished, the others will crumble.
Freedom of the press cannot be
destroyed if we want the other
freedoms to exist. The same is
true with the other freedoms-
each depends upon the other. Lib-
erty in the United States can only
stand on solid pillars.
"We must impress on the Ameri-
can citizen that there is only one
thing that wi;l insure full happi-
ness, and that one thing is free-
dom. A man may be unhappy with
freedom, but he certainly cannot
be happy without freedom.
"The thing tnat makes life
really worth living for the Ameri-
can citizen is the fact that when
Ire turns the key of the door to
his home at night, he can say-
'This is my castie-I am a free
mana'.

LEGION AUXILIARY
MEETS IN NEW HOME
The American Legion Auxiliary
held their first meeting last Fri-
day in their n'ew home, donated
by Mr. Martin of the Martin The-
aters, with eight members pres-
ent.
Mrs. George Asbell of Blounts-
So 0i, vice-president of the Third
District, presided, and gave an in-
teresting talk on the various
phases of Auxi:iary work, follow-
ing which refreshments of cookies
and soft drinks were served.
Upon the departure of Mrs. As-
bell, the meeting was turned over
to Mrs. Lois VanHorn. president
of the Auxiliary. A lengthy busi-
ness session was held at which it
was voted to pay for the wheel
chair bought by the Auxiliary to
be used in their welfare work, and
to send flowers to Mrs. Lula Bel-
lows,, one of the members. Dis-
cussion on the matter of furnish-
ing the new home was also held
at this time.
Disposing of all business, the
meeting adjourned. to meet Au-

L"NO MiAYs LAND"

Today's increasing demand for pine products
will provide a tremendous drain on Florida's for-
est resources. In many instances, forest tracts
may be cleanly cut for pulpwood or saw timber,
leaving no seed trees for reproductive purposes.
Such forest land, becoming inactive and unpro-
ductive, would become a burden to its owner.

In his congressional message of March 14th,
President Roosevelt summarized this danger by
saying that "cut-over forest land is forming a
new, but almost worthless No Man's Land."

To insure a timber supply to meet constantly
increasing demands, forest tracts must be looked
on as crops. Damaging forest fires must be pre-
vented and natural reproduction encouraged.
Your wood lot will readily pay increasing divi-
dends in the future if it is protected and encour-
aged today.

As a public utility we aim at furnishing a
S type of electric service which cannot be dupli-
cated-as a local citizen, we aim at assisting itt
sound community development which will'
benefit all.


"As grows the Pine tree tall and straight, so
shapes the future f our State."

of warning. Anxiety is a word that
stands for and means much, be-
cause it is the key to temptation,
and there will be times when this
organization of yours will be
tempted. By this. I simply mean
that it will be although your con-
se'nt and through your efforts that
the businesses and industries will
locate in Port St. Joe. Therefore
we should not be alarmed when
we hear of the effort of selfish,
greedy, fly-by-night promoters en-
deavoring to locate in this city. I


Joe is a natural radius point is
still a producing territory. There
is no reason why this cannot be
revived. I do not know what 1has
been done, but I do know that
this administration., oth national
and state, are making efforts to
*encourage the farmer, and with a
back-to-the-farm movement there
should be enough farnm goods pro-
duced to keep and support a fine
port with the exportation of pro-
ducts and the importation of fer-
tilizer.
"A Port St. Joe farmers' mar-
ket could be the source of a large
yearly income for this territory. I
have a clipping from the Pensa-

OUT-OF-STATE SHRIMP
BOATS MUST PAY FEE

Old Tax of $2000 License Will
Be Enforced

Florida's 15-year-old law impos-
inng a $2000 license on out-of-state
shrimp p boat owners will be en-
forced for the first time beginning
Monday, August 24.
The fee has not been required
because of reciprocal agreements
with neighboring states, which
waived their licenses on fisher-
men.
A group of Florida fishing boats
were held in Savannah recently
uiiti a Georgia license was paid.
Conferences failed to settle differ-
ences between officials of the two
states, so enforcement of the Flor-
ida license law was announced.

SHRIMPING BANNED
ON COAST OF GULF

Fast Cutter Will Patrol Coasts of
22 Counties Bordering Gulf

Coastal waters of the Gulf, bor-

closed Aiunu-t 1 lo shrimpers. The
closed season will last until Oc-
tober 1. It is also unlawful to take
shrimp in inside waters anywhere
in the Gulf bordering Florida from
February 1 to April 1.
The conservation department at
Tallahassee has put a fast cabin
cruiser on a Gulf coast patrol to
enforce the closed season. The
boat at present is working in

Additional Cash

For Naval Stores

RFC Lends $3,030,000 Additional
To Help Stabilize Prices
For Crop

An additional $3,000,000 to stabil-
ize the price of naval stores was
made available Monday to pro-
,lucers after President Roosevelt
gave his approval to a further Re-
construction Finance Corporation
'ran in that amount ,The Star has
been advised by Senator Claude
Pepper's office at Washington,.
Making available this added sum
brings to a total of $10,000.000 ex-
tended for the purpose by the
RFC in connection with this year's
rosin and turpentine crop in the
South.
It is stated that since Florida
produces about 25 per cent of the
naval stores marketed annually,
the state will benefit to tre extent
of nearly a million dollars in this
new financing.
The bulk of the crop will have
been produced by the end of S'ep-
tember, and it is the opinion of
the Turpentine Farmers associa-
tion, which negotiated the loan,
that the additional $3,000,000 will
insure complete success for the
program designed to give protec-
tion against destructive price cut-
ting through forced sale of rosin
and turpentine by the producers.

Remedies
for Ailing Plants


hi ,


Apply Plant Food Around Plants,
Best treatment for ailing plants
is good care, plenty of moisture
and an occasional extra meal.
Plants live like humans in mosi
respects, but they cannot pick upi
bag and baggage and leave foi
another spot where water runs cool
and food is plentiful.
First sign of an ailing plant is
likely to be seen in the color ol
its leaves. As a rule the green
loses its richness, and turns pale,
much like a human. This may be
followed by blighted flower buds,
and wilted leaves. If the condition
extends to many plants, it is seri-
ous, and measures should be taken
at once to remedy the situation.
By cutting back faded flowers
and foliage, dressing with plant
food around (not in contact with)
the plant will usually survive and
regain its vigor. These measures
should be followed by extra care
with the hoe and a plentiful sup-
ply of water.
Plants which grow in the gar-
den are in need of extra food ele-
ments. In the forest decayed mat-
ter is allowed to accumulate and
decay, thus returning to the soil
the elements which plant life has
used up. This is not true in garden=,
where customary practice dictates
a clean up of all debris in the
fall.

A botanic garden to be built in
suburbs of Moscow, will include
hothouses with artificial climates
suitable for plants from all parts

STOP IT WITH
Alka-Seltzer
Does Headache "slow you
down?" You are a rare ex-
ception if it does not.
One or two tablets of ALKA-
SELTZER in a glass of water
makes a pleasant alkalizing
solution that usually brings
relief in just a few minutes.
ALKA-SELTZER is also recom-
mended for
Gas on Stomach, "Morning
After", Acid Indigestion,
Colds, and Muscular Pains.
You will like the tangy flavor
and the results when you take
Alka-Seltzer. Alka-Seltzer, when
dissolved in water, contains an
analgesic, (Sodium Acetyl-Salicyl-
ate). In addition, the alkalizing
agents in Alka-Seltzer help to re-
lieve those everyday disor-
ders associated with hyper- .,
acidity.
