DR. BALL NAMED
PRINCIPAL DUTY WILL BE TO
INSPECT DAIRIES DELIVER-
ING MILK INTO CITY
Dr. W. H. Ball of the Gulf
county health unit appeared be-
fore the board of city commis-
sioners Tuesday night with the
request that he be appointed to
the lpsition of city health officer
and that his assistant, Mr.
Chalker, be named as sanitary of-
ficer in order that they might be
in official position to inspect all
dairies bringing milk into the city
and check on conditions of food
The request was discussed by
the board at some length and a
resolution, drawn up several weeks
ago providing for such appoint-
ment was passed, naming Dr.
Ball and Mr. Chalker as the city's
The resolution reads, in part:

ordinances of the City of Port St.
Joe Freative to the preservation

ENROLLMENT INCREASE EX-
PECTED; NEW BUILDING
READY FOR USE
Principal D. G. McPherson of
the Port St. Joe schools states he
expects a considerable increase in
enrollment this year over last
when the local schools open their
doors next Monday for the fall
The increased enrollment antici-
pated is due not only to the in-
crease in population of the city
but also to the fact that children
from the Overstreet and Beacon
Hill sections will be brought here
by bus, the Overstreet district
having been consolidated, with the
Port St. Joe district and the
school there closed.
Finishing touches are being put
on the new building and it is ex-
pected to be completed ready for
use by Monday.
Teachers signed for this term
are as follows:
D. G. McPherson, principal; T.
A. Owens, coach; Miss Erline Mc-
Clellan, English; Lillian Thomp-
.on, commercial; Russell Cawthon,
language; Miss Julia O'Quinn, sci-
ence; Mrs. Eula Pridgeon, home

Delinquent Taxes LONG AVENUE
Are Discussed At TO BE OPEN
CityBoardSession REQUEST MADE THAT
OWNERS DO NOT PARK
Also Matter of Two Or More Resi- NEW PAVING NOW
dences Being Served By One
Water Or Sewer Connection
The matter of delinquent taxes
was again taken up by the board
of city commissioners at their
meeting Tuesday night and it was
decided that drastic action must
be taken for collection if the city
is to continue to operate, there
being something like $5500 out-
standing in back taxes.
It was voted by the board that
letters be sent to all delinquents
asking them to pay up by Septem-
ber 12 or make some arrangement
with the city tax collector to pay
on the installment plan.
At the next regular meeting of
the board, September 13. a de-
cision will be made as to just
what action will be taken, as the
city is in dire need of money for
operating expenses. The general
opinion of the board was that the
best method would be to place the
delinquent taxes in the hands of
a lawyer for collection, which
would add considerable cost to
the delinquents but which seems
unavoidable under the circum-
stances. The board is reluctant to
take this action, but will be forced
to do so in order to collect.
Considerable discussion was also
field on the matter of a number of
houses being served from one wa-
ter meter and using but one sewer
connection. It was pointed out
that if this became a general prac-
tice it would be impossible to pay
off the water and, sewer bonds,
which are supposed to be self-
liquidating. The water and sewer
systems to date this year show a
deficit of $1,449.31. which it is be-
lieved could be eliminated if resi-
It is expected that Long avenue,
which has been in process of pav-
ing for the past month from First
street to Sixteenth street, will be
thrown open to traffic today or
tomorrow., and it is requested by
city officials that car owners do
not park on the new paving until
after it has undergone tempering
!through the winter.
This particular type of paving,
while it will accommodate moving
traffic, is too soft to allow cars
to be parked for any length of
time, as during this hot weather
the tires will sink into the bitu-
men and leave ruts which will
cause a washboard effect. How-
ever, after it has passed through
a period of cold weather it will be-
come sufficiently hard to support
parked, cars without giving.
Cars may be parked on the
new pavement after 10 o'clock at
night, after the heat of the day
has passed, but should be moved
before 10 o'clock the following
morning. School bus drivers par-
ticularly are requested not to
leave their vehicles parked in
front of the school house after
"ringing students into town.

PORT THEATER IN
DRIVE F 0 R MAIL
Giving Passes To Children Bring-
ing Late Catalogr, To Theater
Saturday; Asks Co-operation
Manager Bill Turner of the
Port theater believes in Port St.
Joe and Gulf county people spend.
ing their money at home, instead
of sending it off to mail order
houses, and in order to promote
this idea he will give free admis-
sion to any child under 12 years
of age who presents a 1938-39
mail order catalog at the box of-
fice tomorrow between the hours
of 2 and 6 p. m.
The Star, since its first issue,
has waged a continual fight in its
editorial columns against buying
from mail order houses, as money
sent out of town is gone forever,
whereas if it is spent with local
merchants it remains in circula-
tion and we all get another crack
at it. The Star and a number of
local business men are co-operat-
ing with Mr. Turner in this drive
by offering to pay a half cent on
each catalog that is turned in.
Others joining in this worthwhile
civic move are LeHardy's Phar-
macy, Schneider's. Miller's Drug
Store and Hauser's Department
A bulletin board will be placed
on each side of the lobby of the
Port theater, one to list the names
of business houses joining in the
campaign and the other to list
the names of those concerns re-
fusing to endorse this movement.
Mr. Turner is contacting every
firm in the city with the request
that they approve or disapprove
of the plan. Which bulletin board
will your name be on, Mr. Busi-
ness Man? Let's hope the second
board will remain blank.

HOW TO TAKE A BATH
First you turn on the hot wa-
ter, stick your toe in and find it
is too hot. Then turn on the cold
water-and it's too cold. Turn the
hot water on again-and the tank
is empty. Now get in and reach
for the soap-but it's gone. Step
out of the tub to hunt the soap-
and skid across the room on it.
Pick yourself and the soap up
and start for the tub-and the
telephone downstairs rings.

SPEAKER SAYS TROUBLE

Government Restrictions and Tar-

"Therle is nothing wrong with
Florida or the South," according
to Edward C. Romrn, president of
the First National Bank of Miami,
"but too damn. much politics."
"I was here when the pineapple
industry was ruined, and now our
winter vegetable growers are get-
ting it in the neck," he said in
reference to the reciprocal tariff
po:;cy which permits trhe entry of
Cuban vegetables in direct compe-
tition with our growers.
I-He denounced government re-
strictions on Everglades sugar
cane growers and pointed out that
but for this the expansion of the
United States Sugar corporation
would put much fertile land to
work and give employment to
thousands of people in this area,
at the same time preserving the

The spoken word is given scant attention;
the printed word is thoughtfully weighed.
The spoken word barely asserts; the printed
word thoroughly convinces. Tire spoken word
is lost; the printed word remains.
Opening of schools in Port St. Joe and
Gulf county-scheduled for next Monday-
signalizes the casual manner in which we take
too much for granted one of the greatest in-
stitutions of democracy. We regard education
much as we do air and water-necessities of
life that are secured without effort.
We forget the struggle of humanity that
brought the blessings of free education, nor
are we mindful of the tribulations of the pub-
iic school systems which were established at
great sacrifice and have been continued on a
high level of excellence only because of the
consecration and vision of a few.
Have modern education facilities, which
have enabled students to learn in more agree-
able surroundings, made knowledge easier to
acquire and therefore of less value? The
words of the old philosopher to the youth who
tired of his books are still good advice:
"There is no royal road to learning."
To the students who begin school for an-
other fall term in Port St. Joe may go the ad-
vice that if finer teachers and more modern
Facilities inr our new school plant have elimi-
iated some of the hardships of education, the
taskmasters in later life are probably more
exacting and more numerous.
Life today is more complicated than it was
50 years ago. The requirements imposed on
persons coming out of educational institu-
tions are greater. Adjustments and adapta-
.ions are complex. Competition is keener be-
.'ause all fields are crowded.
It is true that there is always room for one
more at the top, but the top is farther re-
moved from the bottom rung of the ladder
today than it was 50 years ago.
Preparation for Old Man Opportunity,
who is said to knock but once, constitutes
the very essence of education. It is not to be
expectedd that all students will go about their
school work with the utmost seriousness, but
a little earnestness and attention to their
studies will stand them in good stead when
,hat golden moment does come.
Education is not to be taken too light-
leartedly, even though the American tradi-
iion does make it as free as the air.
WHY DOES FLORIDA RANK SIXTH?
We read daily of human beings being
neither of these states have cows strolling
freely upon the highways.
The establishment of a highway patrol in
Florida, elimination of cows from our roads
and using the gasoline tax for the building of
more and better roads and their maintenance
ONLY would go a long way in placing Flor-
ida further down the list in the number of
deaths due to automobile accidents.
HURRICANE SEASON HERE AGAIN
There are those foolish enough to try to
belittle certain disadvantages which belong to
their section. Some Floridians are that way.
They are reluctant to admit that there are
hurricanes in Florida. But there are, and in
order to reduce anxiety and allay needless
fears, certain things should be clearly under-
stood by all people of the southeastern states.
Hurricanes do not come unannounced.
''heir approach is foretold several days in ad-
vance, and for the last 48 hours, information
is definite enough to give a good idea of
where it will hit. The immediate approach is
heralded.by from 24 to 36 hours of cloudy,
blustering weather. The wind comes in
surges, increasing in intensity hour by hour.
The climax of the wind comes in two "blows"
with a calm of some length between them.
The second blow is opposite in direction from
Hurricane winds are not so hard as cyclonic
winds. They do not blow down buildings and
carry people away as if by magic. Except for
tidal waves, the loss of life would not be
great. Most good, strong, well-braced build-
ings will stand against a hurricane. Doors,
windows and other movable parts should be
secured. There is usually time for making ex-
tra efforts at security, or moving from one
place to another if necessary-and reasonable
judgment is exercised.-Holmes County Ad-
OUR CHANCES FOR LATIN-AMERICAN

trade treaties with nine Latin-American coun-
tries and is negotiating them with two more,

UJST INNOCENT FUN .
By The Other Fellow
I have done considerable flying,
not only with others but piloting
my own ship, but there are many
things that I would rather do than
make a parachute drop, although
at one time I almost made up my
mind. to try it.
However, that didn't keep me
from being interested in hearing
a friend tell of his first jump-
he did it just to find out what it
Three of them went up in a
plane-the pilot, the parachute in-
structor and my friend, whom we
will call Bill. At 2000 feet up the
pilot leveled off, Bill took his
place in the door, and the instruc-
tor stood behind him. A pat on
Bill's back from the instructor
signified that now was a good
time to step off into great gobs
of nothing but air ... so step
Ordinarily a parachute jumper
turns head over heels before the
'chute opens, but this time was
different. Bill had let one foot
linger: too long in the door open-
ing, being sort of reluctant to let
the firm footing get away from
him. As a result his turning was
from side to side, more of a "bar-
iel rol." aeronautically speaking.
A bit disconcerting.
But it didn't worry Bill, most of
his "buck fever" having been suf-
fered while he was still on the
ground, before the takeoff. So he
barrel-rolled for a few seconds,
then saw the tail of the plane
?safely above him, out of the way
of possible entanglements, and he
pulled the ripcord.
He really pul-ed it, too-full
length. He wasn't taking
chances on half a job. Nothing
happened for a few heart-beats.
Bu.aL.i.sjt as he was about to pull
the cord of his emergeney-'ylUt-'
the first one opened. He straight'
ended up into a sitting position and
began to float gently earthward.
The instructor jumped a minute
after his pupil, and as soon as
both were sitting comfortably un-
der their rope-hung umbrellas, the
former began yelling instructions
to Bill, telling him now to manipu-
late the lines of the 'chute i:1 or-
der to land in a given spot.
The beauty of the down pass-
age, Bill said, and the sensation
of being up there above terra
firma in a noiseless-except for
the instructor's shouts world,
was indescribably inspiring.
It took only about five minutes
to descend the 2000 feet. During
the drop Bill stowed the ripcord
in a pocket of his coveralls. Many
beginners instinctively drop it af-
ter they pull the ring. But not
our learner, Bill-he had Scotch
blood in his veins. He had been
warned that if he did he would
have to pay for it. And-he would
have had. to buy beers for all the
gang at the field!'
Things like this float around
from hand, and almost get kicked
under the carpet. so this one I am
passing on, just as though you had
never heard it before:
Mrs. Newlywed, to the real es-
tate salesman who is trying to
sell her a home: "Why buy
a home? I was born in a hospital
ward, reared in a boarding school,
educated in a college, courted in
an automobile and married in a
church. I get my meals at a cafe-
teria, live in an apartment, spend
my mornings playing golf, and my
afternoons playing bridge. In the
evening we dance or go to' the
movies. When I'm sick I go to a
hospital, and when I die I shall be
buried from an undertakers. Why
should we buy a house, I ask you?
