AT LUCKY BUCK

AUCTION HERE

CROWD HAS GREAT DEAL OF
FUN BIDDING AT SALE
HELD IN THEATER

A fairly large crowd turned out
Saturday afternoon to attend the
free moving picture show and
"Lucky Buck" auction held at the
Port theater marking the closing
of a campaign for more business
:and paying up of back bills con-
duted by 15 local business houses.
A great deal of fun was enjoyed
by those participating in the auc-
tion, and in some cases the bid-
ding went sky-high when some ar-
ticle took the fancy of a number
-of bidders. A total of $162,210 in
Lucky Bucks was spent, but this
was not the entire amount issued
by business firms, as quite a few
,of the bidders did not have suf-
ficient "money" to outbid the
lucky buyers.
The beautiful floor lamp put up
by the Chavers-Fowhand Furni-
ture company brought the highest
amount, going for $74,000, while
boxes of groceries ranked next,
selling for from $12,500 down to
$4000,
Bill- Turner, manager of the
Port theater, acted as auctioneer,
and done a most, creditable job,
and it is mainly aud i't0 his offer-
ing the use of the theater for the
auction and staging the free pic-
ture show, preceding it, that the
affair was such a success.

table were crystal candleholders
containing yellow tapers. Guests

from a sparkling crystal bowl ac-
companied by dainty sandwiches

Picture Depicts Life of Men

Living On 'Borrowed Time'


"Test Pilot," Starring Myrna Loy,
Clark Gable, Spencer Tracy and
Lionel Barrymore. Plays At the
Port Theater Sunday Monday.

The most modern of heroes, air-
plane test pilots, are glorified in
"Test Pilot," which stars Clark
Gable, Myrna Loy, Spencer Tracy
and Lionel Barrymore, playing
Sunday and Monday at the Port
theater.
Clark Gable plays the title role
as a daring aviator, willing to
risk life and limb for a job he
loves, living every minute of his
life up to the hilt, existing on
"borrowed time."
Myrna Loy plays an unsophisti-
cated farm girl wno marries the
famous flyer. Spencer Tracy, as
the best mechanic in the business,
takes care of Gable's plane and
Gable, a double duty that is al-
most too much for one man.
Gable appears as a test pilot,
taking off for a record-breaking
attempt in a transcontinental
flight. En route, he develops en-
gine trouble, drops down in the
middle of a Kansas wheat field,
meets Myrna Loy and carries her
off as his wife. Fired from his job
with Lionel Barrymore, aircraft
manufacturer, because he insists
on a honeymoon, he finally re-
sorts to piloting an unknown ship
in the Cleveland air races. Win-
ninng, he gets his job back.
Miss Loy finds that she must
fight a new kind of rival, the love
of flight, whose hold on Gable is
unbreakable. Finally, when Tracy
is killed in a llant test, Barry-
more persuades Gable to give up
thie business, go back into the
army from whence he came and
put his talents to work for his
country.


The Vision of

Port Saint Joe

Minister Urges Development of
Physical and Moral Possibilities
For Better Ciitizenship

By REV. H. F. BEATY
(In Florida Baptist Witness)
Just five years ago we came to
this section, and from that date
have been watching the signs of
the coming development of Port
St. Joe. We found it such a pleas-
ant place to live that we were con-
tent to await the time when a bet-
ter day should begin. Of course
we found those vwho would dis-
courage us if they could, but many
were preparing for doing their
part when it should come.
It is a great day for any place
to have men of vision such as the
duPont interests to come in and
make developments such as we are
beginning here.
The voting property owners have
begun. to see the vision: of the
great day coming, yet none of us
can realize what a great change
will take place within the next
year.
The spirit of co-operation on the
part of all is very encouraging, as
it assures us that th'e best for all
will be the result accomplished.
But let us catch a vision of the
possibilities, which are more than

Health Unit Is

Doing Good Work

Many Inspecttions Made of Sani-
tary Conditions of All Types
Within Gulf County

Since the first of the year, the
sanitary officer of Gulf county has
made a survey of the sanitary con-
ditions of the county. In this sur-
vey he visited 786 private homes
and business houses. Of this numn-
ber 392 were found to have un-
sanitary privies, five houses had
no toilet facilities at all. Sixty-five
such privies are located within
the city limits of Port St. Joe.
Most of these unsanitary privies
are not fly-proof and are ever a
source of intestinal diseases, such
as colitis, dysentery and hook-
worm. The percentage of infection
by these diseases within the coun-
ty could be greatly lowered by the
installation of sanitary toilets that
are now being built by the WPA
community sanitation project.
Sewer connections would rid Port
St. Joe of these sources of disease.
Many dangerous water supplies
were found in the county. Shallow
driven wells head the list with
392, most of these wells delivering
water by means of a pitcher pump.
This pump is dangerous because
it is open and therefore lets- any
dirt and trash get into the water
as it comes out of the pump. The
safest type is a force pump. Every
pump should be further protected
from surface water by a three-foot
concrete slab, three inches thick,
about the pipe.
In its work to remedy just such
conditions, the sanitation, division
of the Gulf county unit has in-
stalled, with WPA labor, 79 sani-
tary pit privies in the county. The
city of Port St. Joe has made 135
sewer connections since the first
of the year. In rural sections, 20
septic tanks have been. installed
by home-owners.
Sixteen water samples have
been submitted to the state lab-
oratory for analysis. These samples
came from private supplies in the
county. To protect the school chill-
dren, the WPA project has in-
stalled six sanitary drinking foun-
tains for schools.
Plans are now being made to
inspect local food handling estab-
lishments. such as grocery stores,
cafes and meat markets. These
plans also include the inspection
of the three dairies within the
county. By means of these inspec-
tions, the sanitary conditions of
these places from whence we get
our food, is improved upon. This
is a major service that should be
had in all cities and counties with
a health unit.

AN UNDERSTATEMENT OF FACTS

Release by the National Emergency Coun-
cil of its findings in regard to conditions in
the South may have come as a shock to some
of our readers, but they have been apparent
to the editor of The Star for a number of
years. Before locating in Port St. Joe, the
editor made a 17,000-mile trip over a great
portion of the nation, including the entire
state of Florida, and the facts" presented in
the report sent to President Roosevelt are, in
our estimation, an- understatement of true
conditions.
The report shows that the South is poor,
the. average income in the most prosperous
southern state being below that of the least
prosperous state in other sections. This is
true, and as a consequence of this low income
many people of the South are living in homes
that would not be considered fit to shelter
cattle and horses in the North or West; they
do not have the wherewithal to secure a
sufficient variety of foodstuffs in their diet,
and as a consequence are subject to the rav-
ages of. pellagra; sanitary provisions are in-
adequate, which results in hookworm; ma-
laria, the disease of poor housing, is so com-
mon that it is taken for granted as a part of
the privilege of being alive. But the greatest
drawback, in our estimation, is the high rate
.of illiteracy.
We believe that illiteracy--lack of proper
'education-is the main reason why the South
finds itself in the condition it is in today.
"Phe South, with one-sixth of the nation's
school revenue, educates one-third of the na-
tion's children.
The report goes on to state that: "Penal-
ized for being agricultural and handicapped
in its efforts to industrialize, the economic
life of the South has been squeezed to the
point where the purchasing power of its peo-
ple does not provide an adequate market for
its own industries nor an attractive market
for those of the rest of the country. More-
over, by curtailing imports, the tariff has re-
luced the ability of foreign countries to buy
American cotton and other agricultural
products. The South is penalized by the pro-
Iective system which has forced it for gener-
ations to sell its agricultural products in an
unprotected world market and buy its manu-
Iactured goods at prices supported by high
tariffs. In addition, the South has been handi-
capped in industrial development because the
southeastern manufacturer shipping to the
northeast is at a relative disadvantage of 39
per cent and the southwestern manufactur-
er's relative disadvantage is even greater-
as much as 75 per cent."
There is the heart of the South's problem-
squeezed between lack of a high tariff on its
.rops, the freight differential that protects
the northeast against southern-made goods
and the fact that this section has been drained
of capital and forced to borrow and pay high
*interest in order to continue to exist.
The natural resources are here but facili-
ties for their processing are small; the popu-
lations is sound but underprivileged and un-
der-educated; the needs are great but the
buying power is low.
Find a remedy for these ailments and the
future of the South will no longer be in doubt.,


BUILD NOW
Many new homes are being built in Port
St. Joe, but they are not being built fast
enough to take care of our rapidly-growing
population. Many of our workers have their
families in rented homes and apartments in
Apalachicola, Wewahitchka and Panama City,
either motoring to this city daily or securing
a room here and going home over the week-
ends to visit with their families.
It is true that it takes courage and confi-
dence in the future to build a home, yet it
would cost little more in the long run and
there would be something more substantial
to show than a stack of rent receipts. The
future can be what people make it, and when
we come right down to it, the home-builders
are the ones who are making the future of
Port St. Joe.
Many people think home-building is a com-
plicated process-but it isn't. We have a num-
ber of concerns right here in Port St. Joe
which can furnish all the necessary informa-
tion and arrange the financing. And right
now a home-builder can get more and a bet-
ter home for his money than ever before.
Don't worry about the future of Port St.
Joe-it is assured. We ask you to have faith
in your town and yourself. A home is the
best investment anyone can make, and a
home in Port St. Joe right now is, in our
opinion, one of the best investments in all
Florida.

THROUGH GLASS, DARKLY
Women who would never think of painting
lilies or carrying coals to Newcastle are
using dark glasses to look out on the world
of today. It cannot be that they find the news
from China, from Spain, from the greater
part of Europe, from our own economic battle
lines, so dazzling that they must look at
things the way people look at the corona of
the sun in an eclipse-through smoked
glasses. One name for them is "googlers," a
word as beautiful as the thing itself
Or is this fad like other harmless transi-
tory lunnacies ? Is there a method in the mad-
ness? The girls are not really imitating Greta
Garbo's three-alarm disguise. They are going
back to a fashion much older than Garbo.
The dark spectacles are only a revival of
the 18th century domino which survives only
in the masquerade. Further back is the orien-
tal veil. The lure in concealment is as old as
mankind and womankind. But today it does
make a queer combination-dark spectacles
and our general behavior. On the beaches
the swimming costumes have been reduced
to a minimum. One might say they are down
to the irreducible minimum. Bult the eyes will
be completely hidden behind black goggles.
It is something to note without getting too
excited about. There are so many violent, bit.
ter, destructive lunacies free in tlhe world,
that it is a positive relief to turn to the harm-
le.ss, meaningless minor aberrations of fash-
ion. -New York Times.

)ne big mail order house last week mailed
in approximately 550 catalogs to Port St. Joe.
\Which means that thousands of dollars will
go out of the city during the fall and winter
season which should rightfully go into the
tills of local merchants who carry a better
grade of merchandise than the mail order
house for the same price but do not let the
people know this by means of advertisements.

Stardust and

Moonshine
By The Other Fellow


I have been asked what is the
difference between a live and a
dead town. How does one com-
munity earn, the reputation of be-
ing alert and enterprising while
another is called stagnant?
:Both may look the same. Both
may have the same natural ad-
vantages.
Obbiously the difference lies in
the attitude toward the commun-
ity shown by its citizens. A live
town is one in which there are
plenty of men and women ready
to take hold and. put over any
w o r t h y community enterprise,
such as the Community Center
building here in Port St. Joe.
A dead burg is one in which
every man is too selfishly en-
grossed in his own affairs to spend
any time on community matters.
Which is Port St. Joe to be,
with the Centennial Celebration in
the offing? It's up to you Mr. and
Mrs. Citizen.

Editor Bill, on several occasions,
has asked me would I care to
iead over a new novel and let him
know the gist' of it, which I have
gladly done. I don't mind
doing small favors like that, but
someone-there seems to be dirt
in this-has placed a copy of
"Pullerunm Disea. e, or the Bacilli-


Wrote Descartes: "Good sense
is, of all things among men, the
most equally distributed; for
everyone thinks himself so abun-
dantly provided with it that those
even who are the most difficult to
satisfy in everything else do not
usually desire a larger measure of
this quality than they already
possess."
The greatest gift from h'eaven-
good sense-yet none of us pray
for it, having already an abun-
dance.
Is it any wonder, C. B. S.. that
we who cannot in reality run a
peanut stand, offer to run the
world; that we who cannot invest
$5 wisely will jump to invest
$5000; that we who know what is
wrong with our industry strive
with might and main to make it
wronger? (Herman, look up that
"wronger"-shouldn't it be "more

And old Bill Shakespeare: "Men

FROM TlHE SEVEN SEAS TO

THE PAINT POT!

America's early merchant marine put to sea,
their seams sealed with Southern pine gum. To-
day, similar gum is distilled to provide turpentine
and rosin for Amcrici's paint pot. Thus has the
Southeastern Naval Stores Industry risen to be-
come America's greatest chemical export. This
trade brings to the Southeast an income of forty
million dollars. Employment is provided for 50,-
000 who receive more than 15 million- in wages.
The Southeast can ill afford to iose this great in-
dustry. Yet forestry experts tell us that 75% of
all annual forest destruction takes place in Dixie
and such widespread deniuda;tion, if continued,
means the moral crippling of the Naval Stores
Industry.

The future progress of this area depends on
the continuation of present industries, as well as
the attraction of new. To provide for the per-

Florida Building

At World's Fair

To Cost Over $300,000 and Be
Built Almost Entirely of
Florida Materials

Construction of Florida's build-
ing at the New York World's Fair
will begin immediately, according
to Earl W. Brown of DeLand,
manager of Florida National Ex-
hibits, who completed signing of
the contracts last week.
'The building will cost over
$300,000 and will be 100 per cent
Florida," says Mr. Brown. "It will
i;e in the Florida theme of archi-
Ltcture and will be built almost
entirely of Florida materials."
The 65-foot pilings of southern
pine used for the foundation of the
building would cover five miles if
laid end to end, and 365 tons of
teel will be used. Walks in the
patio will be paved with coquina
rock, Florida travertine and
Quarry key stone. Candora marble
will be used for the floors and
i'ountains.
Members of the Florida Na-
tional Exhibits construction staff
have been at work in the shops
and studios in DeLand for many
months planning the exhibit.
The last word in exhibit tech-
nique will be demonstrated in the
Florida building. The floor will be
'ivided into three levels so those
looking at the exhibits may walk
or stand one behind the other
without t having their view ob-
tructed. A Florida sky, the re..
sult of years of experimentation
with ultra-violet rays, cloud I.a-
clines and special illumin>.tio'i
equipment will cover the interior
of the building and. complete a
cycle of 24 hours every 20 min-
utes.

Baptist Church

Has Made History

Organized In 1922 With Rev. E. D
Johnson As Pastor; Rev. J. W.
Sisemore Now In Charge

(The following article is re-
printed from the Florida Baptist
S"itness of August 11, which was
devotedd almost entirely to the new
3aptist church in Port St. Joe and
: the city of Port St. Jo'e.)
The First Baptist church of Port
'.. oe was organized in the Meth-
odist church in February, 1922,
*-ith the Rev. E. D. Johnson of
Apalachicola and W. A. Bryan of
Youngstown presiding.
A most beautiful and impres-
sive institution was witnessed by
the following charter members:
irs. W. .. )aughtry.. Mr. and iVrs.
J. A. Connell, Mr. and Mrs. J. A.
cKeithen, R. A. Costin. Mr. and
Mrs. Orin L. McCranie, Mrs. J. F.
Miller, Mrs. L. Owens, Mrs. Josie
Pridgeon and Mr. and Mrs. T. M.
Bandy.
The newly organized Baptist
church worshipped one Sunday a
lonth in the Methodist church un-
til plans were completed for a
Baptist church building by the ap-
pointed building committee, R. A.
Costin, E. D. Johnson and Mrs. J.
A. Connell.
R. A. Costin opened his home to
the pastor called, E. D'. Johnson.
who so gracious) carried on the
building of the church. While the
building was under construction a
revival, conducted by the Rev. Mc-
j{ae of Apalachicola, was held un-
:ler a tent on the lots now occu-
pied by LeHardy's Pharmacy.
After completion of the church,
(he Rev. J. H. Senterfitt of Mari-
anna was invited to hold a revival
-neeting which brought a number


of additions to the church.
The following have served as
pastors: E. D. Johnson, L. E. Good-
game, F. H. Bancroft, Roscoe Hall,
D. F. Hickman, J. 'i. Gore, D. F.
Grayton, D. W. Hodges and the
present pastor, J. W. Sisemore.
Dr. J. W. Sisemore came on the
field in November, 1937, moving
some 2000 miles to take a church
that had made history for itself.
The church then became a full-
time church and the work began
to move forward, due to the great
progress of the city. The church
adopted a definite budget and
started paying its bills promptly
and maintaining a balance in the
bank at all times.
The Sunday school has grown to
such an extent that it became
necessary f o r several of the,
classes to meet outside. The Train-
ing Union is growing by leaps and
bounds. The Adult, Intermediate
and Junior Unions have just been
organized and the work of these
unions is exceptionally good. The
membership of the church has
practically doubled.
The new two-story brick build-
ing, which is 50 by 80 feet and
cost $7000, is now practically conm-
pleted. This new structure is on
the same lots that the old build-
ing was on, Third street and Balt-
zell avenue.

AMAZING LIFE-SAVER TREAD GIVES YOU SPLIT-


SECOND STOPS ON WET, SLIPPERY ROADS

0 It's here to save your life! Just look at
the row upon row of never-ending spiral bare
in this new Life-Saver Tread. Then you'll un-
derstand why it acts like a battery of wind-
shield wipers, sweeps the water right and left,
forces it out through the deep grooves, mak-
ing a DRY TRACK for the rubber to grip.
That's why the new Goodrich Safety Silver-
town will stop you quicker, safer-on a wet
pavement-than any tire has ever stopped
you before!
And, adding one safety feature to another,
this new Silvertown is also the only tire that
gives you the Golden Ply-the famous Good-
rich invention that resists the terrific blowout-
causing heat generated inside all tires by to-
day's high speeds- protects you against those
high-speed blow-outs.

NO EXTRA COST
Remember, many tires cost more than Silver-
towns; but no other tire-at any price-acan
give you this two-way protection against skids
and blow-outs. Unless you make your next
tires Silvertowns, you'll be cheating yourself
and your family out of the greatest tire safety
ever offered. See us before it's too late.
