Sheriff Byrd Parker Is Named As
Captain, With S. L. Barke
Second In Command

Along with other cities of Flor-
ida, Port St. Joe is to have a Home
Guard unit to replace the National
Guard outfits which have been
called for a year's active training.
Action was taken on the formation
of such a unit at there regular meet-
ing of Gulf County Post 116, Am-
erican Legion, held here Monday'
night.
The guard will be headed by
Sheriff Byrd Parker as captain, S.
L. Barke as first lieutenant, and
Larry Evans, second lieutenant.
The roll is now open for men
between the ages of 18 and 21 and
36 up, and the officers are desirous
of signing up as many as possible
immediately in order that a requi-
sition for rifles and. uniforms may
be made at once. The rifles will be
of the Lee-Enfield type, left over-.
from World War days, and uni-
forms will be of the same vintage,
now stored in government ware-
houses. ,
Captain Parker, his lieutenants
and interested members of the Le-
gion will gather at The Hut Mon-
day evening to work out details
of organization in order to have
the outfit ready to go when the
government begins issuing sup-
plies.
The bill providing for the home
guard has passeti' both houses of
congress and' is now awaiting the
signature of President, Roosevelt
to become law.

zens of Port St. Jo'e are urged to
be generous in the buying of
votes in order that the good work ,
may be carried on.

Armistice Day Fete Promises TO
Be Best Ever Held In

Plans are rapidly assuming con-
crete form for the Home Defense
Day Celebration to be held in Port

The parade will end at Port Inn
Park where "Taps" will be sounded
at 11 o'clock and one minute of
silence observed in memory of the
World' War dead. Public addresses
will follow from the band stand in
the park, although at this time the
speaker of the day has not been
de-ignate-], invitations having been
extended to G. Pierce Wood, Ful-
ler Warren and Secretary of State
R. A. Gray. Post Commander T.
M. Schneider will act as master of
ceremonies.
Following the speaking a free
fish fry will be open to the public
in the park, prepared under the
expert direction of Post Cook Ar-
thur Lupton.
An old-time fiddler' o6nventionf
will be held at 2:30 in the after-
noon with prizes of $10 and $5 to
the top ranking rosin throwers.
Other entertainment events will
be worked out for the day, and the
celebration will close with a grand
ball at the Centennial auditorium
under auspices of the Paper
Makers Local, with music fur-
nished by Curtis Davidson and his
orchestra.

Chalks Up Third Win of
The Season

The Port St. Joe High Sharks
won their third grid game of the
-eason on the local field last Fri-
day when they defeated the invad-
ng Grand Ridge team 52 to 0.
The Sharks took an early lead
which they held throughout the
game. The starting lineup of
*ordon Farris, Willard Gilbert,
Jimmie Taylor, Buck Walters,
John Lane and' Billie Hammock
were relieved by a fresh team at
the second half after the game
was on ice.
The Sharks meet Sopchoppy to-
lay at the neighboring town for
heir fourth game. The Sharks
have won three and lost none;
Sopchoppy has won two games
,nd lost none.
The local team is In tip-top con-
lition, showing improvement in
every game, and they can hold
heir winning streak if local root-
rs will turn out and pep them uD
through the rooting section. Let's
11 go to Sopchoppy today!

Donkey Ball Game

Is Laughable Tilt

Port St. Joe and Apalachicola Le-
gionnaires Entertain Crowd
In Slow-Action Affair

Playing before a packed grand-
stand Tuesday night at the local
ball park, teams made up of Am-
erican Legionnaires from Port St.
Joe and Apalachicola engaged in
a mirth-provoking donkey baseball
game, with the local aggregation
winning 8 to 4.
Lineups for the two teams was:
Port St. Joe-A. C. Lupton, A. J.
Hill, Wilbur Wells, Charles Gas,
kin, S. L. Barke. H. K. Welling-
ton, D. B. Lewis, W. L. Fuller and
L.. E. Jones. Apalachicola-Austin,
Rowan, Shellis, Deas, Williams,
Coombs, Fincher and Anderson.
T. M. Schneider, at the micro-
phone, kept up a running fire of
comment on the plays.
-Star performers were Col Percy
Coombs, who did a slide for life
under the belly of one jack; S. L.
Barke, who demonstrated great
histrionic ability; Arthur Lupton.
who "sailed through the air with
the greatest of ease," and Gene
Austin, captain of the invaders.
While the crowd was not as
large as anticipated, due to lack of
sufficient advance advertising and
conflicting events, those who saw
the show voted it the most laugh-
able affair ever staged in this city.

THE FOUR HORSEMEN ARE RIDING
Postmaster H. A. Drake remarked to the
editor the other day about the food shortage
in Germany and other European nations un-
der the totalitarian heel, and ye ed replied
that that would be the main reason for Hit-
ler's defeat-lack of economic resources.
Famine and disease, two of the most deadly
of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, are
working on the side of Great Britain. No
one knows exactly how serious the food situ-
ation is in Hitler-occupied Europe, for the
German censors won't let out information of
that character. But it is known that the con-
quered countries have been systematically
gutted of their food reserves, in order that
the German army and the German people
can be fed. The fine dairy herds of Den-
mark, products of centuries of development,
have been slaughtered for beef. Already the
people of Holland, Belgium, France and. else-
where have felt the pinch, as basic foods be-
come scarcer. Germany, because of her seiz-
ures, is better off than most, but even there
the people exist on a bare subsistence bases.
Great wars have always brought the threat
of famine, and sometimes the actuality. But
it is a reasonable supposition that this war
may be the precursor of greater hunger than
the modern world has known. In the past,
.nations, when embarking on war have usually
been .fat, prosperous, well-fed. But the Ger-
mans, long before war began, were living on
short rations. Germany, and to a lesser ex-
tent Italy, have been following a war econ-
omy for many years-everything, men and
material alike, has been dedicated to prepar-
ing for conflict. Production of food has neces-
sarily been held to the lowest possible mini-
mum-substitutes of little nutritional value
have long been employed. It is not unna-
tural that serious diseases have been growing
in both number and intensity for many moons
in Germany and Italy.
Disease, of course, is the ever-present ally
of famine-and disease, once it gets the up-
per hand, becomes plague. Plague, according
to the grapevine that mysteriously brings
news past the iron-clad European censorship,.
has already come to the enslaved Polish peo-
ple. And plague respects no boundaries.
Europe has never been completely self-con-
tained-it must import. Today there is al-
most no commerce between the old world
and the new, save for that which is controlled
by Britain. So long as Britain survives, the
Axis will be able to obtain almost nothing
outside the gutted land it dominates. If Hit-
ler does attempt an "all-out" blow against
England soon, this will be one of the princi-
pal reasons for it.
Some in this country would help the con-
quered peoples with food and other necessi-
ties. But Britain has so far refused to pass
relief ships through the blockade, on the very
reasonable theory that the dictators would
seize their cargoes once they were delivered.
The famine-wracked people of Europe appar-
ently will not get much help from us.
The two most dreaded of the Four Horse-
men are preparing their mounts and soon will
be riding roughshod over war victims who
never saw a battle, and never heard the wail
of a bullet.


NAVY DAY
Next Sunday is the Navy's birthday anni-
versary-as near as the Navy has a birthday 414
-for it is "Navy Day" and jointly honors the 415
great American fighting fleet and the great 416
American, Theodore Roosevelt, an ardent 41S
champion of American sea power. 419
420
On thi-s day most large ports have one or 421
more battleships berthed for visiting by the 422
public. Port St. Joe will not have any th:s 423
year-nor next year, more than likely-but 424
after that, unless we miss our guess, Port 425
426
St. Joe will be one of the leading ports on
the Gulf, and as such each year, when Navy 427
Day rolls around, we will see some of' the 428
ships of the line riding proudly at anchor in 429
our unsurpassed bay. 430
431
Navy Day is sponsored annually by the[14
Military Order of the World War, the Navy 480
League of the United States and other pa- 481
triotic organizations, as an occasion for pay- 502
ing tribute to the American Navy and thrill- 503
ing with justifiable pride over the glorious 504
part which the Navy has played in American 516
history. 529
538
The European war and developments in the 539
Far East have given a deeper significance 540
than ever before to the observance of Navy 566
Day. Our Navy is our first line of defense. 567
568
On it rests the solemn responsibility in these 569
troubled times of protecting our shores from 571
572
invasion, and our rights everywhere from 574
outrage. 576
577
Congratulations to the American Legion In 578
organizing a home guard outfit for Port St. 580
Joe. The Legion should be in charge of such 581
582
an organization and, in addition, the prompt .S.
action in organizing now assures the new or- 58s4
585
ganization of securing rifles and uniforms rs6
from the federal government before the sup,- 57
ply is exhausted. 599

Politicos over Florida are trying to learn 610E
who will head various departments and com- 611
missions when Spessard Holland takes office 612
614
as governor January 7. Holland isn't talking, 615
but his advisors will gather at Bartow soon 617
after the November election to talk appoint- 619
ments and policy. O o

"Slightly Tempted," playing Tues-
day only at the Port theater. The
story follow's Herbert's astonish-
ing exploits after he is mistaken
for a South American explorer and
is presented with the keys to the
city.
Johnny Downs and Peggy Moran
carry the love interest in the pic-
ture. Elisabeth Risdon has the role
of the village spinster. George E.
Stone is seen as a small town
crook, and Robert Keane as a
suave swindler in the drama.
Comedy h a s b'een developed
around Herbert's attempts to sell
bogus stock to a group of small
town "suckers." How he is re-
.formed while playing cupid to a
boy and girl in love and helping
them promote a toy train factory,
is said to keep the story moving
rapidly until the final surprising
climax.

Mr. and Mrs. Horace Soule and
small son, Hoppy, spent Sunday in
Mobile.
Mrs. Elgin Bayless and sons
were week-end guests of Mrs. Nora
Howard.
E. Clay Lewis, Jr., was a week-
end visitor in Gainesville.

GOSSIP
D. C., you should be ashamed of
yourself. Taking I,. V' ana J. W.
to the cemetery, not lo mention
Keeping J. \,. away from B.Y.P.U.
G(. H. is telling the girls that J.
L. cares only tor her now. (Care-
ful, John.)
Pe'ewee should, be a little more
careful after football practice.
We noticed the girls were "cut-
ting in on Coach. Could it be for
"historical reasons"?
We all thought Jimmie T. was a
fast worker, but after two years
he seems to be slipping-or is he,
M. J.?
It looks like G. L. and M. E. H.
just don't like our school boys.
Panama City seems to be of in-
terest to three of our St. Joe girls.
B. E.just can't make up her mind
about the two C. S.'s.
M. L. and G. F. almost 'nuf
eaid!
Poor Jim thinks he has lost his
girl to his dear brother. Buck up,
old boy, you may get her back yet.
We notice some of the boys have
started using a new kind of hair
tonic. Wonder where they buy it!

COLORS ON THE CAMPUS
Green-Students of St. Joe Hi.
Yellow-Bill Roberts when Mrs.
Kenningtin gets after him.
Blue-Color that can be felt.
Black-Color worn after one of
Miss McClellan's English tests.
Purple-Just after Mr. -Stapleton
coaches you on playing hookey.
Rust-Stopped brains of Port St.
Joe Hi students.
Wine-A popular drink with
students.
Pink-Tommy Kelly's hair.
Whit'e-Gordon's shirt on Sun-
day night. (It's red around the col-
lar Monday morning.)

I'D LIKE TO BE A SENIOR
I'd like to be a senior
And with the big shots stand,
A studded pin upon my vest,
A cutie to hold my hand.
I would not be a president,
I would not be a king;
I would -not be an angel.
For angels have to sing.
I'd rather be a senior-
And not do anything.
