Members of the Port St. Joe
Parent-Teachers association and

who have not already done so,
to register immediately in order
to vote on the school amend-

close tomorrow at midnight.
Some two or three years ago,
the state gathering of the Parent-
Teachers' association at Gaines-
-'lile was turned into a sizzling in-
dignation meeting because the
good ladies had. just heard that
the purchase of serum for hogs
came first in the expenditure of
state funds; ahead of money for
education of children, says the
Orange County Chief.
The friends of Florida schools
are attempting at the general
election in November to correct
this fault, and the voters will be
asked to give schools an equal
claim, with other departments, to
funds in the state treasury.

Cool Snap False Harbinger
,/ of Arrival of Fall
Fall knocked at the door ahead
of time in Port St. Joe when we
had a cool snap last week which
caused a lot of us to get out our
long-handled underwear and those
extra blankets, and while we do
need a blanket occasionally near
morning. we still have with us
the warm weather.
Our cool spell was attributed by
the weather bureau to the recent
tropical disturbance which drew a
bit of the North's atmosphere to
the South. We can look forward
to a number of warm spells yet
before Old Sol crosses the equator
on his trip to the southtvard.
But we can also look forward to
a fall snap in the atmosphere in
the near future, what with school
under way and the football men-
tors putting their squads through
the paces for the main encounters
of the season.
The sun has already deserted
the northern hemisphere and is on
-its way to regions where it will
give warmth to South America
and South Africa. returning to us
again next June 21, when summer
makes her bow.
From now until December 21,
the days will become shorter un-
til the advent of winter, four days
before Christmas, brings the short-
cst day of the year.

THE MAD HATTER
In listening to Hitler's strange speech
over the radio Monday afternoon it struck us
that he somewhat resembles the Mad I-atter
in "Alice In Wonderland" whose next words
or actions no one could predict. Truly, this
German dictator has gone mad and may well
be called the Mad Hatter of Europe, whose
next words or actions none can predict.
One phrase stood out in his talk which
gives a clue to what he has in mind. It was:
"This is the last territorial demand I
will make in Europe-but it must be
This indicates that after he has annexed
the Sudeten areas of Czechoslovakia he will
turn his eyes to the colonies taken from Ger-
many during the World War. If Hitler can
carry through his present bluff it will give
him possession of the Skoda arms and muni-
tions factory, which has long supplied France
and Britain with big guns, and also a rich
mining and manufacturing .district which will
supply him with the sinews of war.
He knows that as soon as he seizes the .Su-
deten areas, Hungary and Poland will also
make similar grabs, and all of Czechoslovakia
will be partitioned among the hungry wolves.
And when this happens, Nazi Germany will
be the ruling power from the Rhine to the
Black Sea and Herr Hitler's head will be so
swollen with power that there is no telling
what his actions will be.
The peaceful submission of the Czechs to
Hitler's demands will not make for the peace
of Europe. It might, temporarily, until Ger-
many has her military might properly mar-
shaled for further demands, but that is all.
LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAP
Officials and others who have the habit of
signing documents without reading them may
take warning from what recently happened
to Comrade Isakhanoy, director of a Soviet
government shoe factory in Tiflis.
A Russian periodical called "The Crocodile"
was waging a campaign against inefficient of-
ficials, and its editors suspected that Isak-
hanoy was not sufficiently diligent on his job.
By some means it was arranged to have a
fake letter presented to him for signature,
along with routine documents placed on his
desk each day. Isakhanoy fell into the trap,
and this is what he signed without reading:
"Through some misunderstanding I was
promoted to the post of factory director. I
seldom go to the workshops. I do everything
I should not do, and do not what I should. I
am a fool. Everybody knows that, and I in-
form you as well. I am ready to sign any
paper without reading it. I am proving this
to you herewith. Signed, G. Isakhanoy."
The Crocodile published the letter and
razzed the unlucky shoe factory head so un-
mercifully that it is said he was forced out
of his job and kicked out of the Communist
party as well.
Moral: Don't sign anything before reading
it-and seldom sign it afterward.-Exchange.
The editor who selected for his slogan "A
Paper for the People If the People Pays For
It" had the right idea even if he couldn't state
it in grammatical style.
WE'LL STAY AT HOME, THANK YOU
European statesmen and news commenta-
tors are predicting that the United States
will be drawn into the war in Europe within
from three months to a year should another
outbreak similar to the World War occur.
We hardly think so, for, in our opinion,
America learned her lesson in the last con-
flict when billions of dollars were sent over-
seas to finance the warring nations and all
that was received in return was 350,000 Amer-
ican casualties, $20,000,000,000 in repudiated
debts and a first-class depression.
We feel sure that if the urge is made that
America enter the approaching war those
who participated in the late "war to end all
wars" will wield sufficient influence to keep
this country on her own side of the Atlantic.
They do not want to see their sons and
younger brothers sacrificed to the greed and
lust of European dictators.
No,-thanks. We'll stay at home. But should
some of these nations start climbing over our
backyard fence, that would be another mat-
ter, and there would be no hesitancy on the
part of Americans to take up arms in de-
fence of their own land.
Let Europe settle her own affairs. We've
learned our lesson.
BUY HOME PRODUCTS
Campaigns for the encouragement of buy-
ing products manufactured near home have
been carried on in various communities with
varying success for many years. Nearly
everyone agrees that the idea is sound in prin-
ciple, but many fail to put it into practice
when the time comes to buy.
Any small industry which manufactures a
worthy product and sells it at a reasonable
price might be enabled to grow large through
the loyal support of home people. Its growth
would enable it to increase its payrolls, in-
crease its consumption of locally produced
raw materials, build up: increased taxable
wealth, and in every way contribute to the
progress and prosperity of its community.
These are trite and self-evident facts which
have been put forward time and again; yet
many otherwise good citizens deliberately
contribute to the upbuilding of distant cities
at the expense of their own towns and coun-
ties, through failing to patronize home estab-
The policy of buying at home would do
more for the average town than can be ac-
complished by all the commercial organiza-
tions and boosters' clubs which may be main-
tained. These organizations are needed, of
course, but their efforts should be aided by
supporting the enterprise already present in
the community.-Titusville Advocate.

(Pinch hitting for the Knot Hole,
who has closed up and gone,
Well, folks, here goes-
As you know, should know, or
will know, this week we bring you
the news and views on Miss
,'Ouinn, the new nistructor and
professor, yeah man, of the Sci-
ence of Sciences.
She is approximately 20 years of,
age, although she would not tell
us the definite number. Here is a
statement she so graciously gave
fis: "A woman's age is the secret
o. hIer success." Some proverb!
Now for a description of her:
She is a brunette with light brown
eyes. Stands 5 feet 6 inches. She
weighs 135 pounds, has natural
wavy hair and wear a 51 shoe..
Miss O'Quinn attended high
school in Perry, F;a., which is in
Taylor county. Ahem, it so hap-
pens that she is a nearly" perfect
Florida girl. She went to college
for four years, and her college des-
tinations were: Florida State Col-
lege for Women, Alabama State
Teachers College and the Florida
southern College. May I also add
'hat this is Tier first year to en-
counter that so-called storm,
Her bobby is collecting animals
-f which she seems to have done
a swell job. For her sidekicks she
uses sailing and beach parties, or,
may I quote her again: "I like to
have fun." Now last, but not least,
may I say that she is a very nice
person to know (if you can get to
know her). Last minute flash tells
me that she is not married, but
sh'" hasn't given up hope yet.
So as time is short, may I close
in saying that next week we will
present to you Mr. Cawthon, mne
most honored and best liked Span-.
ish teacher in the whole school.
So keep your eyes and ears tuned

LOSE FIVE DAYS
Federal Season Opens November
15, But Florida Season Does
Not Open Until November 20
Hunters who may have
chuckled with anticipation when
the federal department of agri-
culture announced a 45-day duck
,-ooting season for the southern
states will find they can't start
outinging in Florida until five days
after other states start.
There is a conflict between the
federal dates and the hunting
season allowed in Florida-and
where the state law imposes
greater restrictions, it is enforced.
The U. S. Department of Agri-
culture fixed Nov. 15 to Dec. 29,
inclusive, for duck shooting in the
southern states. However, the
Florida hunting season does not
open until Nov. 20, and I. N. Ken-
nedy, state game commissioner.
explained that there can be no
duck hunting until the later date.
The result is that Florida will
have 40 days of shooting an
increase of 10 over last year,
when. the season was Nov. 27 to
Dec. 26, inclusive.
Ducks may be shot in the hunt-
ing season between 7 a. m. and 4
p. m. They cannot be shot over or
near baited water, and they can-
sot be hunted with a power-pro-
MADE AT MIDWAY PARK
B. F. Crockett, owner of Midway
Park fishing camp on the Dead
Lakes, was in Port St. Joe the
other day and reports that he is
improving his camp.,
'ilings of the old pier, which
was erected 35 years ago and. for
many years used for the loading
of turpentine and rosin on barges
and boats plying the lakes when
the state farmed out prisoners to
work in the turpentine stills, has
been removed, stumps cutou t at
the landing and a general clean-up
Mr. Crockett recently erected a
number of cabins and a dining
hall-kitchen at his camp and is
endeavoring to make Midway Park
one of 'the outstanding fishing
camps on the Dead Lakes.

COLORED FOLKS ASK
THAT ORDER BE KEPT
Make Appeal To City Commission
For Abatement of Nuisances
A delegation of colored resi-
dents appeared before the city
commissioners Tuesday night ask-
ing that better order be kept in
the colored, quarter, that more
street lights be provided and that
the alleys be cleaned up.
Their request was presented in
the form of a petition bearing 30
names and it also requested that
all musical instruments be shut
off at 11 o'clock each night and,
that all such public music instru-
"ents be prohibited from use on
"We :desire to co-operate with
the city officials in enforcement
of the laws as far as possible,"
said the spokesman for the group.
The commissioners agreed to is-
sue an edict to close "jooks" in
the quarters at 10 o'clock at night
on week days and 12 o'clock on
Saturday nights, and that all such
places be kept closed Sundays.
SThey also informed the colored
delegation that the city was doing
its best in the way of law enforce-
ment across the tracks, but it was
up to the colored residents them-
selves to aid in law enforcement
by reporting offenders and swear-
ing out warrants for their arrest.
VOTERS SEEK TO GIVE

higher learning, should make it a
point to urge the adoption of this
amendment. There is really no
logical reason why there should
be a dissenting vote."
Colin English, state superinten-
dent of public instruction, in com-
menting on the amendment, said:
"The school revenue amendment
which has been proposed by the
legislature to the people 'of the
state for their approval should be
ratified by an overwhelming vote.
It states clearly that it is the ob-
ligation of the legislature to pro-
vide necessary revenue for the
school appropriation. The legisla-
ture has asked for this mandate;
the citizens of this state who are
interested in the school system
should express their wishes by
approving it. It is an essential
step in stabilizing our school situa-
