VOLUME I PORT ST. JOE, GULF COUNTY, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1938 NUMBER 51
CITY SHOULD BE
NAMED ST. JOSEPH
W. T. Cash, Greatly Interested In the Past and Future of This
Town, Believes Residents Should Capitalize On
Reputation of Ancient City of St. Joseph
"Why don't you people over there in Port St. Joe get to-
gether and change the name of your town to 'St. Joseph'?"'
was the question asked the editor of The Star last Friday by
W. T. Cash, Florida state librarian. The editor, on a business
, trip to Tallahassee, had dropped in to say "hello" to Mr. Cash
and gather some pertinent data on the ancient city of St.
Joseph. We found Mr. Cash greatly interested in the old
city and -his presentation of facts and figures was so interest-
ing that before we knew it two hours had passed.
"'Port St. Joe' sounds so small-townish," said Mr. Cash. "I
hate to see a 'Port' or a 'Fort' incorporated in the name of a
city, as it always reminds me of a small village-not a place
of importance-and, in my opinion, your city is going to be-
come the leading industrial center of Northwest Florida."
The editor feels the same way about this matter and has of-
ten wondered why Port St. Joe was named Port St. Joe in-
stead of St. Joseph. We notice that a number of firms oper-
ate with the "St. Joseph" or "St. Joe" title. For instance, the
St'. Joseph Land & Development company, the St. Joseph Tele-
phone & Telegraph company, the St. Joe Hardware company,
the St. Joe -Motor company, the St. Joe Bar and the St. Joe
Curb Market. 'Changing the name of our city to St. Joseph
would not interfere, as far as we can discover, with the names
of any firms in the city.
The ancient city of St. Joseph has gone down in history
,due to the fact that Florida's first

Charter Is Issued
F o r Centennial
Exposition in '45
No Decision Made As To What
City Will Be Selected As Site
Port St. Joe has been asleep at
the switch and let a group of men
in Crystal River secure something
that rightfully belongs to this
Secretary of State Robert A.
Gray issued, on September 21, a
charter to the Florida Centennial
Exposition, Inc., authorizing it to
organize and operate an exposition
during the years 1944 and 1945
commemorating the admission of
Florida into. the Union.
Frederick Van Roy of Crystal
River is the company's president,
and the charter lists Crystal River
as the place of business.
A statement issued by Van Roy
it the time of securing the charter
was to the effect that no decision
has yet been made as to where
the exposition will be held.
It is understood that with the
issuance of this charter no other
such organization can be formed,
and thereby Port St. Joe loses a
golden opportunity for the staging
of another celebration similar to
the proposed Centennial Celebra-
tion to be held here next Decem-
ber 7 to 11.

d Team Plays In Carrabelle Today,
i Meets Florida Hi October 14
The St. Joe high school Sharks
't football team journeyed to Wewa-
s hitchka last Friday to take a 20
t. to 8 beating in a non-conference
1; game. The loss was accounted for
i- due to the fact that a shifted line-
v. up was used against a crack We-wa
[. sextet. Some players were playing
their first game and did unusually
n well under such conditions. Wewa
e intercepted two passes approxi-
, mately 20 yards from the goat line
a and chalked up 13 points in the
first half. Another touchdown was
- pushed over in the last quarter
and the extra point was completed.
The longest run on St. Joe's side
was made when Howard Taunton
k intercepted a pass and ran ap-
proximately 65 yards before being
s downed by Wewa players.
Winston Jones remained out of
the conflict most of the game, but
u was sent in during the last quar-
ter and ,showed up well.
