Year's End and


Its Beginning


W HOEVER it was that invented
the year as a division of time
should share in the blessings in.
evoked by Sancho Panza upon the
man who invented sleep. With the
latter comes surcease from the
cares and worries of the day and
a renewal of spirits for the
L-struggles of the morrow. The
year's end is also not only a sleep
and a forgetting of things fled be-
yond redemption, but with its
passing hours come the many-huea
\hopes that keep ever fresh and
buoyant the human soul and make
radiant again the paths of the
unknown future.
The old year falls from our
hands like the stem of a rose
whose leaves, one by, one, month
by month, have silently dropped
away into tie void of time, some
laden with the fragrance of pleas-
ant memories, some with the
pallid tints and withered aspects:
of misfortunes and griefs inescap-
able and irreparable andi some
with dust of dreams shattered be-
yond- recall.
But, at the birth of another New
Year, Time brings to the hands
of- each of us a fresh bu4 from its
eternal tree, the secrets of whosQ
"close-folded leafage no eye can.
penetrate, no conjecture of wis-
dom fathom Yet within its
depths we can scent the swete
and inspiring aromas of the hopes
AVthat spring eternal in the. human
breast, of hidden joys that hold
fresh promises of full blossoming,
of good deeds to be done for us
and by us, of thg blessings of
peace, good will and prosperity
again made possible for us, and o!
the gardens of opportunity whose
gates are swinging wide open for
us.
Always, in the cycle of human af-
fairs the Spring of Hope follows
the Winter of Discontent. And
New Year's Day is the symbol of
human renovation spiritual as
well as utilitarian-and of the
clearing process of the soul's past
accumulations, making ready for
the building of its "more stately
mansions.''
It may be Fate that guides the
hand of Time in placing in our
grasp the new bud of promise. but
each of us may .do much to further
its proper blossoming, to keep
,fresh its fragrance, to shape into
full fruition the enjoyment of the
unfolding, month by month, and
day by, day, of the flower of the
year whose unopened months lie
Before. us.

First Gasoline

Pumped Through

Line to Georgia

Marks Opening of First Project of
This Type In the South-
eastern States

Marking another step forward! in
the industrial development of Port
St. Joe, the first gasoline this week
flowed through the Southeastern
Pipe Line company's 98-mile line
from this city to Bainbridge, Ga.
-the first project of this character
to be constructed in the south-
eastern states.
To date 88,000 barrels of gaso-
line have been brought in to Port
St. Joe by tankers from Port Ar-
thur, Texas, 33,000 by the Pure
Oil vessel W. F. Burdell and 56,000
barrels by the S.S. Gulf Maid of
the Gulf Oil company. The entire
amount has been pumped through
the line to the huge storage tanks
at Bainbridge, where it will be dis-
tributed by tank trucks.
Building of the line, which is
ultimately, to extend to Chatta-
nooga, Tenn., has resulted in a
number of court battles in efforts
to halt its construction, but it is
the belief of company officials
that the line will be completed as
originally planned when the Geor-
gia legislature meets in 1941, at
which time the matter of laying
the line under Georgia highways
will be straightened out.
Thie'Pdit St.'Joe terminal of the
line is equipped with four large
storage tanks, erected at a cost of
$42,000, and huge pumps, the only
ones on the 98-mile stretch, to
force the gasoline through the
8-inch line to the northern termi-
nus.

'Lone Wolf' At New

Year Midnite Show

Character Created By Vance First
Came to the Screen Way
Back In 1917

Fiction's most fascinating gen-
tleman burglar returns to the Port
theatre screen at 10:45 p. m. New
Year's Eve in a midnight presen-
tation of "The Lone Wolf Keeps
a Date," with Warren William in
the title role. Created by Louis
Joseph Vance, dean of mystery
writers, the light-hearted, light-
fingered rogue has been famous
through the screen and the stage
from almost the very beginning Of
his amazing career.
The Charlie Chans, Mr. MotoN,
Raffles and Philo Vances have but
recently made their arrival on the
screen, comparatively speaking.
The Lone Wolf, however, first
came to the films in 1917, under
Selznick auspices. In 1924, ,Asso-
ciated Exhibitors came out with a
feature called "The Lone Wolf,"
and in 1926 Michael Lanyard fi-
nally became Columbia's property
with "The Lone Wolf Returns."
The Lone Wolf returned again
in 1929 in "The Lone Wolf's
Daughter" and agaih in 1935 in
"The Lone Wolf In Paris." Since
then there have been a series of
Lone Wolf pictures.

The Low Down
from
Willis Swamp

Editor The Star:
Old Nero fiddled around, and
let his town burn down-and got
his name in our history books. But
the Romans paid for Nero's leanin'
towards music. Nero had the. fun
and the Romans paid the bill. I
guess it was in Rome where the
old slogan got started about if you
dance and cavort you got to pay
the fiddler.
But anyways, we ain't so many
jumps behind the Romans. We
been leaving' the running' of every-
thing to our Boys up there on the
luxuriant Potomac. An' brothel,
we sure are gonna git some fiddlin'
bill!
But I see faint signs of coming'
out of our coma. When the bosses
up in Washington says to the
Boys there, "Here, you fellers, you
better all go on home"-and the
fellers don't go, that IS news.
That is grounds for optimism.
But even if Washington was to
burn down, like Rome, we would
keep on running I reckon. My
neighbor, Henry, he says: "Jo, we
would be a dang site better off if
half the town did burn down."

BATHIIG CUSTOMS
When young Y.nkee Johnny squawks
about washing behhd his ears and refuses
to take his bath, little does he realize how
fortunate this country, is to possess ninety-five
per cent of the worll's bathtubs. Only those
living in the backwcds can fully appreciate
the difficulties besetting the rest of the worla
in their effort to kee) clean.
The Laplanders anl Eskimos, for instance,
take the easy way ou-they just don't bathe!
Neither do the Llanas or Buddhist priests,
who consider it here to get into a bathtub.
The Arab, because )f the scarcity of water,
vigorously rubs himself with the sand of the
desert. In southwest Africa, where water Is
a luxury, baths are ew and rare, because a
four-gallon tin of watr costs one dollar-ana
the water is only rentedd." After the bath,
it is returned for use in watering plants.
The Finn's bathroom is a two-room struc-
ture looking like a }en house in which the
Finns steam themsehes while swishing their
bodies with branches :o open up the pores.
And in Russia, a bathtub costs more than a
grand piano; and a cake of soap-if you can
find one-fetches $3.5).-Franklin News.
