GRID SEASON CLOSES WITH
64-6 WIN OVER GRAND RIDGE
The football game last Wednes-
day marked another win for the
St. Joe Sharks when they chalked
up 64 points to 6 for their Grand
Ridge opponents.
The following record shows, the
games the Sharks have won and
lost, with the scores. They 'are
given in the order played:
Sharks 32; Florida High 12.
Sharks 20; Frink 18.
,Sharks 52; Grand Ridge 0
Sharks, 18; Sopchoppy 14.
Sharks 0; Chattahoochee 30.
Sharks. 53; Wewahitchka 6.
Sharks 24; Sopchoppy 6.

The following scores are those
of the games played by the junior

As you .see by the scores, the

a team that is just as good as the
one this year.

Diamond Rush

Is Dramatized

Victor McLaglen:Is a Renegade
Jewel King In South Africa
Drama at Port Tuesday

Based on authentic incidents
during the discovery of diamonds
in South Africa, with- the subse-
quent lawlessness and disorder
which followed in the wake of the
rush to the diggings, "Diamond
Frontier,",which plays at the Port
theater Tuesday only, starring
Victor McLaglen, is announced as
an action and, thrill-packed drama.
The locale is somewhere along
the Orange river. The. discovery
of a large rough diamond in the
hands of a group of children is
re-created, as are scenes of the
violent rush for claims which fol-
lowed when news of the strike
spread to neighboring towns.
Starred with McLagleni is John
Loder who suffers from McLag-
eln's greed and cruelty, is impris-
oned and then returns to pursue
his vengeance against the man
who has wronged, him.
The second, feature, on Tuesday's
program is Tex Ritter in "Roll,
Wagon, Roll."

IN MEMORY OF MY MOTHER
MRS. ADELLA E. GUERRY

God, in His love and wisdom,
ias called her to that fair land
where no one who enters ever
dishes to return. She was a dear,
sweet mother, devoted to her chil-
dren and all who were near and
lear to her. And as we leave her
n God's care we feel here that:
One precious to our home is gone,
A beloved voice so dear is
stilled,
rhe place made vacant in our
hearts
Can never more be filled.
;ow she has joined the angel's,
In Heaven she will stay,
knd when our life's journey is
over
There she will lead the way.
'hen why should our tears roll
down
And our hearts. be sorely riven,
'or isn't there another jewel in
our Saviour's crown
And another soul in Heaven?
Rest dear, and may your mantle
t..peace spread over all who love
ou.
-Sally Guerry Costln. t

In revenge the Iron Guardists
later lined before a huge grave all
those who they believed had any-
thing to do with the deaths. This
group of, over 80, including an ex-
premier, statesmen and other high
officials, were shot to death and
buried where they fell. Later there
were pogroms in which thousands
died. Queen Mother Helen sought
refuge in Italy and the throne .of
King Michael was shaky.

The real name of the young
man was Harry Mylo Liston, age
31, and his home was in St. Joseph,
Mo. His brother, ,Roy L. Liston,
was notified of his death by the
Tulsa, Okla., office of the Williams
Brothers Construction company.
Funeral services were held Mon-

WHY THE POWER FAILED
ON THANKSGIVING DAY

Hundreds of irate housewives
jumped on Dick Porter, local man-
ager for the Florida Power corpor-
ation, on Thanksgiving Day be-
cause the power failed at 10:30 a.
m., and was off for an hour, just
when they were in the midst of
their heavy cooking.
Mr. Porter wants it known that
the power failed due to the fact
that the locomotive crane at the
St. Joe Paper company mill tore
down the electric and telephone
lines at the mill woodyard, and
not that he planned with malice
aforethought to disrupt all those
Thanksgiving dinners.

The spoken word barely asserts; the printed
word thoroughly, convinces. The spoken word
is lost; the printed word remains.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT
The editor was talking to a Panama City
business man and his daughter Monday, and
what they said caused us to wonder about
several things.
This man stated that business in our neigh-
boring city had fallen off tremendously In
the past year and that the only thing keep-
ing business on its feet there-though in a
somewhat staggering fashion-was the trade
coming frorp Port St. Joe. His daughter,
who is employed in one of the larger stores,
and who knows a large number of people in
Port St. Joe, states that the majority of those
spending considerable at a time on purchases
are from this city. The same thing applies
to the food stores in Panama City, local resi-
dents motoring over on Friday and Saturday
and returning with their cars loaded with
groceries.
Why this should be, we don't know (per-
haps far pastures look greenest) for our local
stores carry exceptionally fine lines of mer-
chandise and endeavor in every way to cater
to the needs of our citizens.
Perhaps a concerted drive by local busi-
ness men through newspaper advertising and
circulars, urging Port St. Joe people to trade
at home, and at the same time advertiisng
their merchandise, would aid materially In
keeping some of this money in our city.
Panama City merchants pay no taxes here,
dd nothing for the civic improvement and
welfare of our city and do not care particu-
larly whether the merchants here make
money or go bankrupt. /
The Star, from its first issue, has been con,
tinually preaching "Trade at Home." Now
the merchants themselves should take an ac-
tive and concerted action in doing the same
thing.

Of all the old festivals, that of Christmas
awakens the strongest and most heartfelt as-
sociationrs. There is a tone of solemn and
sacred feeling that blends with our con-
viviality and lifts the spirit to a state of hal-
lowed and elevated enjoyment.-Washington1
Irving.

STheodore Roosevelt once said: "The only
dependable fortune teller is the life insurance
salesman. He tells you what is going to hap-
pen-and it does !"

It would take the equivalent of 8,000,000
old-time galley slaves to propel the liner
Queen Mary; but if Hitler wins he'll have the
slaves.-Courier-Journal. t

The prayer of an honest fisherman: "0
Lord, suffer me to catch a fish so large that
even I, when talking of it afterwards, may
have no need to lie."

A Port St. Joe woman says she isn't much
bothered by her three children telling fibs- a
when they tell the truth is what she dreads.

It will be New Year's resolution time al- d
most before we know it. t

Hunters who 'want to kill ducks have dis-
covered that they can't duck the duck stamps. a


SAVE THE FLORIDA HOLLY
With the Christmas season at hand and the
urge to decorate for the occasion entering
into all of us, the thought immediately en-
ters our heads that the ideal decoration is
the Florida holly.
Of course, holly has been and always will
be a favorite Christmas decoration, but it is
getting scarce and is protected by law. But
we don't have to depend on holly for the
woods are full of other plants that can be
used for Yule decorations.
All we need is a bit of imagination and in-
genuity in preparing Christmas decorations.
Take the common single-flowered hawthorn,
for instance; it may be converted into a col-
orful and tempting decoration by pushing
gumdrops onto the many thorns on its
branches.
A bit of dye or metallic paint applied
properly and effectively will make attractive
and colorful decorations out of pine cones,
pine needles, sea oats, and the leaves and
fruits of many other plants. Mistletoe, an old,
old favorite for Christmas decorating, is a
first-class pest in trees and most farmers will
readily give permission for its removal.
Then there are love apples, green dragons,
red bay leaves, bamboo and moss that will
make very attractive and appropriate decora-
tions. While riding or walking along the
roadsides in the vicinity of Port St. Joe one
may see many evergeren leaves and other
plants that'may be used to decorate and beau-
tify the home during the Christmas season.
There are many plants that are ideal for
decorating during this joyous season, and we
should use them rather than Florida holly,
for growing in the outdoors it is a thing of
beauty, but when we cut it and place it in our
homes for decoration it soon withers and' s
discarded. Let's preserve it as one of the
beauties of our. state.

ITALIAN FIASCO MAY BE BOON
Hitler has formally inducted some more
small countries into his Axis. But that really
doesn't mean a great deal. Rumania, Bulgaria
and the other minor Balkan' countries are in
peril of their lives. They must do what Hit-
ler demands or submit to military conquest.
It is one thing to force foreign ministers to
sign pacts-and another to get the people of
those countries to avow the Hitlerian phil-
osophy. And, according to the way we see it,
the Balkan people hate Hitler even as they
fear him, and are merely awaiting an oppor-
tunity to slip a knife into his ribs.
Worst blow to the Axis has been Italy's
fiasco in Greece. This has reduced Italian t
prestige to the vanishing point, and, from
what we gather from news dispatches, has t
brought with it the possibility of internal f
dissension in Italy. The Italians didn't par-
ticularly want war. They are suffering ser:-
ouslv from the British blockade. And a con-
siderable proportion of the Italians heartily
dislike Germany. We note that the Germani
press has lately begun to denounce Greece-
Fitler may be coming to the conclusion that
he will have to pull his friend Mussolini's
irons out of the Athenian fire. And, in the E
past, press attacks in the German press
against other European countries have been b
the prelude to military action, s,
In the long run the Greek situation may o
prove a great boon to England. Reports in' b
dicate that the English are doing far more t
:o help the Greeks than they admit. They g
have been swiftly developing important air b
and naval bases on Greek land where their t(
planes and battleships can strike against Italy.

Glamour Is Created

By Chemists Using

Only This and That

Evening Gowns, Bathing Suits and
Slippers Come Out of
Test Tubes

Seems as though a chemist can
take a pinch of salt, a lump of
coal and a dash of air, juggle them
together in a test tube and out
comes a glass bathing suit. It's
shatterproof, but what it does to
men on the beach is just nobody's
business.
Miss Bernice Beisel, a junior
student in chemistry at Purdue
University, put one on at Lafay-
ette, Ind., just to show what wo-
men may wear in some not too
distant future when they want to
add glamour to their personalities.
Miss Beisel was one of a number
of Purdue students who wore gla-
morous creations, all of which had
been drawn out of test tubes and
fashioned for backs of women. The
unique fashion show was staged by
the National Association of Man-
ufacturers and was designed to
dramatize industrial progress and
what chemistry is doing to create
new and practical materials.
The glass bathing suit is opasue
and with inlays of brilliant red
rayon could pass any beach cen-
;or. The material feels like thick,
sheeted rubber, though Miss Beisel
declared it feels neither heavy nor
oo hot.
The same chemical industry wove
together thousands of small glass
ilaments, and when the job was
i"nshed the world was presented

of Cinderella slippers, and a Juliet
cap to top the outfit. Worn by
Peggy Davis, Purdue junior, it
aroused bursts of admiration. The
material is thick as brocade and
comes in light blue, pearl gray,
light tan and in white. The entire
gown weighs about three pounds.
So far, this new glass fabric is
being used for dtaleries, lamp
shades, bedspreads and curtains.
Fashioned into an evening gown,,
It effectively dramatizes what in-
dustrial chemists are up to in their
working hours.
Some other chemists had got
busy with a little limestone, coke
and some salt. Out of this came
Koroseal, a rubber-like substance
that ranges from bone-like hard-
ness to liquid. In Koroseal slacks
and shirtwaist Ruth Bryant stepped
out in a gardening outfit.
The material is as light as a fea-
ther, durable and inexpensive with
Its printed design. The chief con-
tribution of Koroseal to the fab-
ric world is its resistance to
strong corrosives, water, oxidation
and to sunlight.
Called a new ''fabric magic,''
Koroseal can be used for stain-
proof table cloths, waterproof
shower curtains and raincoats and
for weather-proof play clothes.
For an informal hostess gown,
there is Vinyon. It took some re-
search and experimentation to put
it together. The chemist who put
the ingredients together might
have been delirious, but there was
nothing phoney about the results.
Vinyon is made of natural gas,
coal oil, salt and air, and the plas-
tic jewelry that goes with the
gown was made of coal, graphite,
paraffine, and, believe it or not al-
cohol. The jewelry is non-inflam-
mable, light and attractive.

erly made, is a food product con-
taining life-giving energizing sub-

Holly, with its brilliant red ber-
ries and rich green leaves, is an
accepted Christmas decoration, not
just because it is an attractive and
cheerful plant, but because in the
early days it was thought to be
"hateful to witches" and therefore
offered protection against them.
Later it wais used as a reminder
of the crown of thorns Christ
wore, the scarlet berries repre-
senting the blood He shed. The
superstition then grew that if one
could obtain a piece of holly
which had been used in a church
it would bring good luck all year
and would protect against light-
ning.

SHE'S THE SAME PERSON, when she goes to g "
stor2. i'
At her club meeting, it's kind of fun to
hear some radical lecturer "prove" that most
manufacturers are slickers, most store cheese
is chalk, and most advertising is ballyhoo.
But watch the clubwoman when she starts
buying. She wants her money's worth and she
gets it. How? By first consulting the adver-
tisements. Then by choosing the'products she
knows--the trade-marked, nationally adver-
tised products that havq been on the market
for years.
Those trade-marked, advertised articles are
the ARISTOCRATS among all the things she
buys-or that any of us can buy.
