Field Supervisor F. L. Jennings

ing, as well as County Supervisor

expected that approximately 9C
men from the--county's WPA rolls
will be employed as the building
begins to take shape.
The WPA allocation for the
project is $35,755, while the city
will contribute $21,363 as the spon-
sor's share. While a considerable
amount of this has already been
contributed, the city's fund is still
short, and the hospital committee,

raise the necessary amount.
The hospital, being the only one
in Gulf county, will fill a long felt

Work Is Started On Inside Story of


Terminal Facilities


For Gulf Pipe Line


Will Proceed In Spite of Hold-
up of Right-of-way
In Georgia

Actual construction work on the
long-awaited terminal for the gas-
oline pipe line of the Gulf Oil and
Pure Oil companies began near
the Port St. Joe docks yesterday
with a large crew of men, trucks
and tractors on the ground.
The pipe line from this city as
far as Bainbridge has been com-
pleted for several months, but ex-
tension of the line from that point
to Chattanooga, Tenn., has been
held up by litigation instituted by
the railroads and other interests.
It is understood that with comple-
tion of the terminal here and in-
stallation of booster pumps at
various points, that Bainbridge
will be used temporarily as the
northern terminal andi distribution
point until the line can be com-
pleted as originally planned.
Oil will be brought by noat from
Port Arthur Texas by the two oil
companies. Completion of the
terminal will bring another indus-
try to Port St. Joe and another
payroll which will aid in the con-
tinued growth and development of
our city.

College Football

"Yesterday's Heroes," Sponsored
By Band Booster's Club,
Has Real Drama

To the millions of fans who jam
giant stadia each Saturday during
the autumn, paying homage, to
"King Football," the all-American
gridiron pastime is full of pulsat-
ing thrills. But what of the real
drama behind those touchdown
thrills and headlines? How are
the gridiron juggernauts built?
What goes on between halves?
What happens to the "stars" after
the last whistle blows and they
are sent out into life?
"Yesterday's Heroes,' a new
and different football film playing
at the Port theater Tuesday only
and which is being sponsored by
the Band Booster's club, promises
the answers to these questions.
The story tells of a small-town
boy who becomes the "star" of th'e
football team and is catapulted
into national prominence. He be-
comes infatuated! with a weatlhy
and spoiled girl and forgets his
childhood sweetheart. Behind in
his studies, he breaks training and
winds up a brilliant football ca-
reer in dismal defeat.
Plunged into obscurity as sud-
denly as he rose to fame, he
leaves college and becomes one of
yesterday's heroes, his only recom-
mendation a bulging scrapbook.
In the dramatic and surprising
climax his childhood sweetheart
finds the brokefni horn and bhlps
him regain his initiative. Under
her influence he makes a. sh3rinc
comeback Only then does he re-
alize that there is more to life
than headlines and cheers.
Starred in the picture are Jean
Rogers andi Rob'ert Sterling.
See this picture full of dramatic
power and emotional appeal and
at the same time help the Band
Booster's club, members of which
are now selling tickets.

1476 Registrants


Sign Up for Draft


In Gulf County


Local Board Assigns Numbers
And Prepares to Send
Out Questionnaires

When registration places closed
their doors Wednesday night in
Gulf county a total of 1,476 young
men between the ages of 21 and
35 had registered for the selective
service draft. Of this number 157
were out of th'e county, leaving
1,319 for Gulf county.
The local board took over its
duties yesterday and completed
the job of assigning numbers to
the registrants. No. 1 went to
Douglas Richard, a negro employee
at Kenney's Mill, while No. 1000
was drawn by Dr. A. L. Ward of
this city. First to register in Port
St. Joe Wednesday morning was
Sammie Davis.
Registration for Port St. Joe
totaled 701 whites and 460 col-
or'ed u, 1 Wewahitchka had 188
white and 55 colored; Dalkeith,
28; Indian Pass 18; Odena, 2;
Buckhorn, 2; Wetappo, 13.
Members of the local board of
Gulf county are B. W. Eells, Port
St. Joe, chairman; T. M. Schnei-
der, Port St. Joe, and Dave Gas-
kin, Wewahitchka.
The local appeal agent is Judge
F. M. Campbell of Wewahitchka,
He will represent both the regis-
trants and the federal government.
The law and rules of the selec-
tive service system provide for de-
ferment of training and service as
long as this deferment serves the
nation's best interests.
Board to Mail Questionnaires
After order numbers have been
assigned, and this will be done fol-
lowing a national drawing to be
held at Washington, the local
board will mail a questionnaire to
each local registrant.
The questionnaire will contain a
printed list of questions which the
registrant must answer. The an-
swers will be used by the local
board in determining if the regis-
trant shall be called for military
training and service.
After the questionnaire has been
studied by the local board, the
registrant will be placed in one of
four classes:
Class 1-Those persons available
for training and service in the
land or naval forces.
Class 2-Those persons deferred
because the public interest is best
served by their staying at their
usual work.
Class 3-Those persons deferred
becauseothers are dependent upon
them for support.
Class 4-Those persons deferred
either by the law itself, or for
physical disability or other rea-
sons.
How Classifications Will Be Made
Registrants will be placed in
Class 2 if their employment In in-
dustry, agriculture or other occu-
pations or employment is found by
the local board to be necessary to

WHY WE HAVE CONSCRIPTION,
"Germany has neither the wish nor the in-
tention to mix in internal Austrian affairs or
to annex or unite with Austria."-Hitler to
the Reichstag, May 21, 1935.
March 11, 1938, Hitler took possession ot
Austria.
"This (the Sudetenland) is the last terri-
torial demand I have to make in Europe .
I .further assured him (Chamberlain) and I
repeat here that if this problem is solved
there will be no further territorial problems
in Europe for Germany. I give him the
guarantee: We do not want any Czechs."-
Hitler to the world in Berlin Sportpalast,
September 26, 1938.
March 15, 1939, Hitler entered Prague, sig-
nalizing the end of Czechoslovakia.
"We (Germany and Poland) succeeded in
arriving at an agreement which for the dura-
tion of 10 years basically removes the danger
of any clash. We are two peoples. They
shall live. One cannot annihilate the other."
-Hitler to the world in the Berlin Sport-
palast, September 26, 1938.
September 1, 1939, Poland was invaded,
Warsaw was blasted from the face of the
earth and the country was wiped off the map.
"The German Reich and the kingdom of
Denmark will under no circumstances resort
to war or any other form of violence against
each other."-Artile 1 of peace pact signel
iq Berlin, May 31, 1939.


April 9, 1940, Hitler's Nazis entered Den-
mark and began looting the country of sup.
plies.
"In the spirit long existing of good Ger-
man-Norwegian relations the Reich govern-
ment notifies the Norwegian government that
she has no intention through her measures,
now or in the future, of infringing upon the
tirritiorinl integrity or the political indepen-
dence of the kingdom of Norway."-From
Berlin. \pril 9, -1940.
April 9, 1940, at 3 a. m., Hitler's troops in-
vaded Norway.
"We are ready to acknowledge and guar-
antec these states (Belgium, Holland, Luxem-
hburg) at all times as inviolable neutral ter.
ritory."-I-itler in the Reichstag, January
30, 1937.
May 10, 1940, Hitler invaded Luxembourg,
Belgium and Holland, leveling Rotterdam.
"Germany has no territorial possessions In
the American continent and has given no oc-
casion whatever for the assumption that she
intends to acquire such possessions."-Hitler,
July 5, 1940.
And that's why this country has conscrip-
tion-to make sure that Herr Hitler continues
to. have no intention of acquiring possessions
in the American continent.-Milwakuee Jour-
nal.

AN HISTORIC DAY
Wednesday, October 16, 1940, will go
down in American history as a significant day
and probably will also be a date to remember
in world history. On that day, for the first
time in our nation's life, peace-time conscrip-
tion was held, and millions of men in the
prime of life Were registered for possible mil-
itary service.
The step was taken with almost unanimous
approval and if the young men of Port St.
Joe are taken as a cross-section of the nation,
the registration was approached in a spirit of
cheerful resignation-as a duty that had to
be done.
Manv "wise cracks" were heard about the
registration desks, such as "Well, now all I
want is a crack at those Nazis," "I hope they
don't send me to Europe-I'm allergic to the
sea," "Anyway, if my number's drawn I'll get
three square meals a day, which is more than


I've been getting lately," and other
such ermarks. Such a spirit on
the part of these young men will
shield us from aggression, allow
us to build' our own civilization,
and to render such service as we
may to others-which, wee beileve

JUNIOR LEGION GIRLS
MEET STATE PRESIDENT
The American Legion Auxiliary
Juniors held a special call meet-
ing at the Legion Hut Saturday to
meet the state president of the
Legion Auxiliary, Mrs. Bezell of
Miami, and the district president,
Mrs. Swank of Panama City.
Junior Counselor Miss Marigene
Lewis opened the meqtlng, then
turned it over to Mrs. Bezell, who
gave an inspiring talk to the girls
on the work of the Juniors. She
then installed the following offi-
cers: Mary Anne Lewis, presi-
dent; Betty Jo Lane, vice-presi-
dent; Virginia Pridgeon, secre-
tary; Royce Goforth, treasurer;
Evelyn Taunton, sergeant-at-arms;
Gwendolyn Smith, chaplain.
After adjourning Mrs. Bezell
took a picture of the group, which
will appear in the National News
of the American Legion. She ex-
pressed great joy over the-number
of Juniors and the work they are
doing.

SURPRISE SHOWER FOR
MRS. FRED McLAIN
Miss Marigene Smith and Miss
Murnice Taunton were co-hos-
tesses at a surprise shower Tues-
day evening at the Centennial au-
ditorium honoring Mrs. Fred Mc-
Lain, a recent bride. Goldenrod and
gentian decorated the auditorium
where cards and' dancing were en-
joyed.
The honoree was presented with
many lovely gifts, after which the
hostesses served cookies, fruit
punch and candy to about twenty-


the streets, the vacant lots, a
well as the individual homes
Nothing can enhance the attract
tiveness of a town like flowers ant
shrubbery. Of course shrubbery;
and trees take time to acquire tru
beauty, but flowers, especially th
hardy annuals, quickly grow fror
seeed.s and bloom in a few weeks
Petunias will be our flower fo
the year. They will grow in an;
type of soil and will thrive will
practically no care. There arE
many brilliant colors as well a
white and pastel shades. The
single type grows with the leas
care andl makes a wonderful dis.
play. The double and ruffled type,
may be planted where they caI
be given more cutlure and wherE
something is needed for special
planting or display. For example
Fifth street here in our city. We
hope to use petunias very effect
tively as a border to outline eact
plot. This treatment would be very
attractive, although it would b(
comparatively inexpensive a n
would require very little care af
ter being established.
The clubs and civic organize
tions of the city will co-operate
in planting andl maintaining the
streets, but to carry out the com-
plete plans, and to properly im-
press visitors, we must have the
hearty co-operation of each indi-
vidual resident. We suggest and
courteously request everyone to
help us develop the petunia theme
of beautification and to plant
plenty of these showy flowers.
They may be used. as borders or
hedges, in beds, or broadcast over
bare places around the home.
We are sure the results will
amply reward anyone for the few
cents and the small amount of
time and care expendedin thus as-
sisting to make our town attrac-
tive. -Mrs. W. H. Wellington.

WHO'S WHO
Gewel Lewis
Gewel, who is a senior this year,
was born in Greensboro, N. C., on
August S, 1923. Before coming to
Port St. Joe High she attended
school at Leon Hi in Tallahassee.
Her favorite color is green and
hcer favorite songs are "Trade
Winds" and Mendelssohn's "Spring
Song." Her nickname, much to
her dislike, is "Tubby," while her
hobby is writing. Her ambition is
to be a nurse and a novelist, anl
her greatest weakness is candy.
She was voted the most athletic
girl in high school in the "Who's
Who" contest last year.

THE JUNIOR'S PROGRESS
This year the juniors have high
ambitions for their junior-senior
banquet. In order to carry out
these ambitions we've got to work
hard. We started off by selling
soft drinks at the first home foot-
ball game and will continue to do
so. Wednesday night we gave a
dance for the townspeople and to-
night we are holding a dance for
the high school studetns. The
juniors will appreciate all co-op-
eration from the school and city.

THE 'WIND JAMMERS'
Wednesday night the juniors
held a Conscription Day dance at
the Centennial auditorium, with
music furnished by the "Wind
Jammers." Mr. Hampton, our band
director, was kind enough to of-
fer his services in organizing this
orchestra. L. P. Davis did a very
good job also.
Miss McClellan, one of our teach-
ers, played the piano. An orches-
tra is not an orchestra without a
good drummer, and we were not
short with Cornelius Kirkland in
the concussion department. Car-
lyle Matthews also played. Last,
but not least, was our guitar
player, Scott Matthews. The junior
'lass sincerely appreciates the
work of these musicians.
Behind the scenes, Charles
Brammar made himself prominent
by giving soft lights and colorful
atmosphere to the dance floor.
We thank you all.
