Processing P plant


A letter received this week from
Senator Claude Pepper, now in
Washington, states that the next
,few days may determine whether
Florida will be selected as the site
for the location of what will be
America's most distinctive tin in-
dustry, a tin processing plant cost-
ing between $2,500,000 and $5,000,-
000.
"Pensacola is considered among
the most strategically located areas
in the nation for the establishment
of this new great industry,' said

TELEGRAMS TO SENATORS
The following telegram was sent
Tuesday to Senators Pepper and
Andrews at Washington:
"Port St. Joe is one of the most
strategically located areas on the
Gulf Coast, being nearer the Pan-
ama Canal than many of our sis-
ter ports. Your cooperation on
behalf of the 'citizenry of Gulf
county and our community in the
establishment of the tin processing
plant that is contemplated for this
area will be greatly appreciated.
"St Joseph's Bay was recom-
mended as the most desirable lo-
cation for. a: 'lighter-than-alr base
In 1929, and the dirigible 'Los An.
geles' was stationed here for sev-
eral days and4 on which Comman-
der Rosendahl was aboard. We
'would appreciate your recommen-
idatlon to the Rosenadhl Board In
the, establishment of this lighter-
than-air base at Port St. Joe,
J. L. Sharit, Mayor,
City of Port St. Joe.
Robert Bellows, Pres.
Business Men's Assn.
Larry Evans, Pres.
Wewahitchka C, of C,

Senator Pepper. .. It enjoys
close proximity to ,the Panama
Canal and has one of the largest
and deepest harbors in the world.
In addition, Pensacola has the ad-
ditional advantage of inland as
well as coastwise navigation to
the east and the tributaries of the
Mississippi to the west."
Now let us consider Senator
Pepper's statement as it applies to
Port St. Joe:
When we glance at the accom-
panying map we discover that Port
St. Joe is in just as strategic a
location as Pensacola, if not more
so, when the matter of national de-
fense is taken into consideration.
Port St. Joe is in closer prox-
imity to the Panama Canal than
Pensacola, and as the ore to be
used in the contemplated tin re-
finery will come from Bolivia
through the canal, there would be
a slight saving in the distance it
would have to be transported.
PortSt. Joe has one of the fin-
est landlocked harbors in the
world, which offers the finest har-
bor for cruisers, aircraft carriers
and other defense protection.
Port St. Joe has coastwise navi-
gation to the east-125 miles
nearer eastern ports than Pensa-
cola-and we have the intracoastal
canal- connection. ith the canal

The spoken word is given scant attention;
the printed word is thoughtfully weighed.
The spoken word barely asserts; the printed
word thoroughly convinces. The spoken word
is lost; the printed word remains.


Don't look like Mussolini can do much
with the Greeks, but we can see why he tried
to take the country. Whoever controls
Greece, its islands and its many undeveloped
sea and naval and submarine bases, largely
controls the Mediterrannean Mussolini's
"Mare nostrum." The Italian attack obviously
was designed as the first step in a carefully
planned Axis effort to destroy Britain's influ-
ence in that area.

The S.S. Queen Elizabeth sailed Tuesday
from New York with accommodations for
15,000 troops. Wonder what Henry Fulton
would have thought of that?

A consulting physician is a doctor called in
at the last moment to share the blame.

Looks like we'll have to call in a juggler
to balance the national budget.


FUNERAL SERVICES HELD
FOR MRS. BURT W. SPEAR

Funeral services were conducted
in Wewahitchka Monday afternoon
for Mrs. Bernice Spear, 46, who

wood, Ala., and a former resident
of Gulf county, is survived by her
husband,. Burt W. Spear;. a son,
James Spear of Keystone Heights;
her mother, Mrs. Jessie Russ of
Chattahoochee; two sisters, Mrs.
Mary Colquett of Chattahoochee
and' Mrs. Evelyn Pittman of Belle-

THANKSGIVING IS 28TH

There seems to be some misun-
derstanding among Port St. Joe
people as to just what date
Thanksgiving will fall on this
year, since President Roosevelt
has set it up a week. However,
they can be assured that the reg-
ularly established traditional date
of November 28 will be the day
to celebrate in Florida, due to the
proclamation of Governor Cone.

Dr. J. R. Norton is in Louisville,

It's hard to be a pessimist these crisp in-
vigorating days. In fact, we woke up the
other morning with the bright thought in
mind that we would go down to the city hall
and pay Clerk Tomlinson our last year's taxes.

London is scarcely a healthy place at the

We heard someone remark the other day

traffic cops believe that?

With Thanksgiving just around the corner
it looks like Hitler is deciding he wants a
slice of Turkey.

Best simile of the week: It ends with a
climax like a firecracker exploding in a bowl
of whipped cream.

and the politician does just about as he pleases
after its all over.

which extends from St. Marks,
Fla., to Corpus Christi, Texas,
giving us not only connections
with the Mississippi to the west,
but to the Apalachicola river and
its tributaries to the east.
Establishment of a tin refinery
on the Gulf coast would be a mas-
ter stroke in the national defense
,il'm. 'or Polivia and the Dutch
East Indies supply practically all
of the world's supply of ore from
which tin is produced. Up to the
present time practically all of the
world's tin ore smelting has been
done in England andi Holland. Un-
der normal conditions the United
States consumes more than 75,000
tons of tin annually, or approxi-
mately 45 per cent of the total
world output. Domestic production
never has exceeded 170 tons per
annum, thus requirements have
been met by imported metal.
It is unsafe for the United
States to depend upon foreign
sources for its refined tin for it
constitutes a serious threat to na-
tional security. Deprived of tin,
the industrial power, and hence
the military effectiveness of the
United States would be seriously
impaired.
Efforts are now being made to
have the national defense council
give consideration to the estab-
lishment of this huge tin process-
ing plant at Port St. Joe.

tact with the officials here I feel
sure that they will give considera-
tion to an inspection of the facili-
ties available at Port St. Joe.
Please be assured of my desire
to be of assistance.
Sincerely yours,
Charles O. Andrews.
Considering Port St. Joe as' an
auxiliary air base we look at the
accompanying map and we find it
is but 212 air miles from Tampa,


75 from Tallahassee, 186 from
Columbus, Ga., and 120 from Pen-
sacola, making it an ideal site for
an air base to aid in the protection
of these strategic key cities.
In addition to the protection af-
forded these cities, St. Joseph's
Bay, with its 30 square miles or
deep water andl its protected har-
bor would be a 'fine location for
a navy base and for the .training
of navy fliers.

SHARKS PLAY WEWA TODAY
Today the Sharks tangle with
'he Wevwahitchka grid team at
the county seat and we hope te
eome back winners. The boys ha-e
been indulging in strenuous prac-
tice and feel sure that they won't
lose another game.'
We (the student body) feel cer-
tain that we will win the game
today if everybody will get out
'here and back our cheer leaders
in helping the boys.
There are one or two who will
not be able to play. .which weaken,
the tepi some, but'the rest of the
boys will be in there fighting hard.
As you know, our junior rbov
have played two games this sea-
son. with one victory and one da-
'eat. In a couple of years -thes,
boys will be our star players, so
we should all be proud of them.

TO WHOM THiS MAY CONCERN
We know that we have had a
hard week, but little things like
examinations never bother us-
MUCH. Some of us who thought
we knew everything before exam:-
nations were a bit disappointed
when we saw our test.
It was really tragic to walk down
the halls and see nothing but
gloomy faces, annd only very sel-
dom did we see a smile-then it
was only a faded one which looked
as though it were saying "Oh;
How I dread this next period.''
The trouble wilt us is we say:
"' can't learn this." Now, no St..
Toe TTi student should ever say ":
-an't." So we take this space in
The Tatller to e-ftend our sympa-
hy to all the students.

WE WONDER WHY-
Edna M. likes taxes lately?
Our teachers insist on wearing
such short dresess? My! My!
Melha N. is so interested in the
paner mill now. Could it be J. C.?
B. S. always has a boy friend?
Certain boys don't make tonuch-
downs when they say they will?
(Could it be the bargains they
make?)

GOSSIP
Lno!ls like T. S. and G. S. are,
drifting back together arain.
We wonder who is the voung

Exciting Scenes are

Filmed for New Hit

Any One of Sequences In "Brig-
ham Young" Is Adequate
For Usual Film

In most motion pictures the plot
is keyed to build up to one tre-
mendous climax, but "Brigham
Young," which is coming to the
Port theatre Sunday and Monday,
has many spectacular sequences.
any one of which would make a
thrilling climax for most pictures.
"Brizham Young" is the story of
the historic Mormon trek west-
ward. Tyrone Power is starred in
the picture, which features Linda
Darnell in the leading feminine
role, and Dean Jagger as Brigham
Young.
The size and scone of the pic-
ture can be judged by the epic
scenes it contains. Among them:
The crossing of the Mississippi
in the dead of winter by thousands
of Mormons fleeing before guns.
The massacre. at Nauvoo, Ill.,
when masked raiders pillaged the
city annd struck down hundreds.
The historic trek of 20,000 peo-
ple across endless miles of waste-
land.
The plague of millions, of grass-
hoppers during the first year at
Great Salt Lake, and the miarcle
of the sea gulls which arrived in
time to devour the Insects andl rid
the Mormons of the pestilence.

CHIEF JONES CALLED ON TO
ASSIST IN HUNTING NEGRO
Chief of Police Troy Jones was
called on Wednesday evening to
come to Apalachicola with his
dogs to assist in hunting down a
negro who it was asserted had at-
tacked a white woman at Land's
turpentine still, ten miles beyond
Apalachicola. He was accompanied
.by, Dr. A. 3. Whitfieldi of Wewa-
bitchka.
The dogs at one time had the
man cornered, but he beat them
off and escaped in a pond be-
fore the posse could get to him.
A large number of men were
s-till hunting the negro yesterday.

St. Joe Is Rapidly

Coming to Front

As Industrial City

Could Become Vital Cog In Na-
tion's Present Defense
Program

Four years ago Port St. Joe was
just a "wide place in the road" as
far as map-makers, tourists and
industrialists' were concerned. But
today that is all changed and the
eyes of the nation have been fo-
cused on this city as one of the
coming industrial centers of the
South.
The city snapped out of its le-
thargic sleep when work was
started on the $10,000,000 DuPont
paper mill, one of the finest in the
country, for the manufacture of
kraft paper from pine.
It was necessary to construct
modern docks and deepen the
channel in our fine bay in order
to care for the vessels serving the
needs of the huge mill.
Following opening of the paper
mill, the St. Joe Lumber and Ex-
port company erected one of the
largest sawmills in the South with
merchantable timber resources of
more than 400,000,000 feet of pine,
cypress and hardwoods.
Last year Port St. Joe was se-
lected as the water terminal of
the first oil pipe line to be laid
in the southeast, extending from
this city to Chattanooga, Tenn.,
again bringing the. city to the at-
tention of the nation. The line at
present has been completed to
Bainbridge, Ga., and three huge
storage tanks and a pumping plant
are now under construction here.
Plans for establishment of other
industries here are now maturing
and it has been stated' by those
who should know that a powder
plant will be started shortly to
utilize the pine stumps resulting
from the cutting of pine trees to
supply the paper mill.
In addition, rumors are rife that
upon completion of the pipe line
an oil refinery will be established
here, the crudie oil to be brought
in by tankers from. the Texas oil
fields.
With the present development of
Port St. Joe as an industrial cen-
ter, and' with prospects of even
greater development in the not
distant future, it is the belief of
everyone that the city should be
made a cog in the huge national
defense program now under way
by the establishment of a naval.
air or army base here for the pro-
tection not only of the industries
here, but for the protection of
nearby cities within a radius of
200 miles of Port St. Joe.
