Work of Local Poet
Better Than "Grass," Says Col-
umnist Writing In Apalachi-
The following is from Don Mc-
Leodi's "Comments" in the Apa-
lachicola Times of last week:
"I seldom read current amateur
poetry, though an occasional glance
at it tends to relieve my embar-
rassment at my own doggerel. In
the 'With Florida Poets' column
of the Times-Union of January 26
I read 'Fisherman's Wife' by Ruth
Allen Smith of Port St. Joe, and
if that isn't better poetry than
famed Carl Sandburg's 'Grass,'
then as an erudite art critic I am
a walleyed pike. And lest I seem
to damn with faint praise, I say
futrher that it is not only better
than 'Grass' but 'Fisherman's Wife'
is good. It's realism is remindful
of 'Spoon River'." Following is
The' clock sounds the alarm. It
may be twelve or three.
The baby wakes and frets. He did
not have milk yesterday.
The fisherman's wife, barefoot, in
faded house dress too torn for
folks to see,
Bars the door behind his sleepy,
lumbering steps. Her hus-
band goes his way.
From the window she sees the
wind is strong. The sky is over-
There's not much for him to go
on such a "mugged up" morn.
By daybreak he'll be back. How
can she stretch the food to last,
.To feed five hungry mouths' an-
other day (six, when you count
the one unborn)?

that England can do the job alone just as the world learned of the
British conquest of Libya. Italy was further harassed in the bomb-
ing of Genoa, near the heel of the Italian boot. This action would
suggest the beginning of the final drive to eliminate Italy as a power
in World War II. Wendell L. Willkie, at the left, will be eagerly

Defense Garden Program
Should Fit Family Needs
Good Planning Will Give Balanced Diet.
Maximum benefits from the De-
fense Garden are reaped when all
work is done by the owner. The
size of the most profitable garden
will therefore depend upon the
amount of leisure the owner has,
and his inclination to do gardening
Unless the product of the home
garden is needed for food which
could not be purchased, it is not
wise to plant a larger space than
will be well tended. Two hours on
each of three days a week devoted
to this leisurely, pleasant and
healthful physical recreation will
take good care of a garden 30 by 40
feet or thereabouts; and from this
space can be harvested vegetables
sufficient for the average family,
except for potatoes and sweet corn.
In deciding what shall be grown,
these crops may be considered as
necessary in most sections of our
Lima beans Parsley
Carrots Onion sets
Cucumbers Swiss chard

not like, and remember that it is bet-

GETS TEACHING CERTIFICATE
Colin English, state superinten-
dent of public instruction, has an-
nounced that Mrs. Franklin L;
Jones of Port St. Joe has been
awarded a Florida teaching cer-
tificate baaed oa four years of col-
area to relatively few vegetables
which will likely be overproduced,
and give you a monotonous diet.
One of the great advantages of the
home garden is the opportunity
it gives to grow annual vegetables
which you might not otherwise try.
To replace items eliminated from
the above list, or to add to it if you
have the space, here are some sug-
Brussels sprouts for fall crop;
celery, broccoli, especially the
green sprouting, Chinese cabbage
for fall salads; savoy cabbage, a
great delicacy; chicory or endive
for fall green salads; collards, corn
salad, eggplant, celeriac, cress,
kale, kohlrabi, leek, melons, mus-
tard greens, pumpkin, okra, oyster
plant, spinach, squash, both the win-
ter kind and the summer varieties
which are so delicious in the baby
stage, especially the vegetable mar-
rows; and turnips and rutabagas,
which are especially successful in
sections which have an early spring
and late fall.
A ramble through your seed cata-
logue will produce other suggestions
which should be considered in mak-
ing up your seed order. Come new
vegetable or variety added to your
list will give you more pleasure
than the staples, and it will be some-
thing to serve your friends when
they come to dine.

City Election 800
Polls Open At City Hall From 8
A. M. to 7 P. M. Next
Qualified voters of the city of
Port St. Joe will trek to the polls
next .Tuesday for the purpose of
selecting a city commissioner to
fill the seat made vacant by ex-
piration of the term of Mayor J.
L. Sharit, but, unlike other recent
elections, they will have the choice
of but two candidates Mayor
Sharit, who is up for re-election,
and Horace Soule, local hardware
store manager. The polls will be
open from 7 a. m. until 8 p. m.,
and while there is not much po-
litical talk on the streets, it is an-
ticipated that there will be a
rather heavy vote.
According to City Clerk M. P.
Tomlinson there were 71 new
voters registered during the time
the books were open, which gives
a total of approximately 800 voters
within the city limit.
In 1938 there were 325 ballots
cast, at which time B. W. Eells,
T. H. Stone and Horace Soule were
candidates, Eells being elected by
a margin of three votes. In 1940,
with 673 registered voters, there
were 613 ballots cast, which seems
to indicate that local citizens take
considerable interest in selecting
their city commissioners.
All qualified electors are urged
to go to the polls Tuesday and
have a voice in electing their city

RE-ELECT MAYOR SHARIT
The qualified voters of Port St. Joe will go
to the polls next Tuesday to select a city com-
missioner to fill the chair made vacant by
the expiration of the term of Mayor J. L.
Sharit, who is a candidate to succeed himself.
During his three years as a member of the
board and as mayor Mr. Sharit has handled
a hard job in a very creditable manner and
in a way that has brought innumerable bene-
fits to oui city that we otherwise might
never have received. He has been fair and
impartial in conducting the meetings of the
board and has at all times carried an open
mind and welcomed suggestions when mat-
ters of importance have been under discus-
sion, not only from the other board members
but from persons in attendance at the board
Mayor Sharit has the city's best interests
in mind at all times and is always willing to
lay aside his work to attend to city business.
We can show our appreciation for what he
has done for Port St. Joe and our confidence
in what he can do for Port St. Joe in the fu-
ture by returning him to office next Tuesday
by an overwhelming majority.
HISTORY ON FILE
Along about the first of December each
year The Star receives a large book by ex-
press-the file of its issue for the preceding
twelve months bound permanently. To date
The Star has but three of these books which
probably is the most interesting collection of
reading material in Port St. Joe today be-
cause it is a history of the community from
the time its phenomenal growth began with
the erection of the paper mill. The books are
filled with the joys and sorrows, the achieve-
ments and failures, the important and the
insignificant, the births and the deaths.
These files are invaluable not only to this
newspaper, but to the community, because
they are irreplaceable. These bound files are
always available to the public for reference,
but in no case can they be removed from the
office, and they must be treated with the
greatest of care at all times, for in them lies
the history of modern Port St. Joe.
That the innocent, childish pastime of kite-
flying could, in certain circumstances, en-
danger life, seems incredible. Yet, in a letter
to Asher Frank, director of Florida's Safety
Council, no less a state dignitary than Com-
missioner of Agriculture Nathan Mayo de-
clares that this is so. In !his letter the com-
missioner cites the case of a boy in Winter
Haven recently who used a wire on his kite
for a cord which, falling across a high-tension
electric line, became a conductor of elec-
tricity, 'killing the lad instantly.
Boys would do well to keep to open spaces
while flying their kites and avoid strictly the
use of any metal whatsoever in the prepara-
tion of kite strings.
If you are a qualified voter, don't fail to
cast your ballot next Tuesday and have a
voice in selecting a member of our board of
city commissioners. /
WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
If you were elected governor of this great
state of Florida and found that the road de-
partment was in the hole, so to speak, to the
tune of approximately seven million dollars,
what would you do?
We believe you would get busy, especially
with the critical defense program looking you
in the face, and see if some of the political
contracts could not be retrieved.
That is just what has happened to our own
Governor Spessard L. Holland. He has found
himself in what the radio boys call "the dog
house." Now, it is up to him to get out of a
mess that he is in no way responsible for.
We say it takes a man with intestinal for-
titude to ask for road contracts to be can,
celled, especially one that runs through his
own town where his home folks were back
of him one hundred per cent.
Therefore, we ask those who have been
urging us to wire' the governor to just sit
tight. Spessard Holland knows more about
our needs that we know ourselves, and we
are willing to trust his better judgment on it.
We don't believe anyone wants the governor
to get us further in debt in order to ride
over good roads.-Lake Wales Highlander.
One by one humanity's fetishes and beliefs
have been exploded. Our forebears shut out
the night air from their bedrooms because it
was "poisonous." We forced spinach upon
our children because we thought this vege-
table to be the open sesame to health. Then
scientists found night air was not harmful,
and spinach only mildly beneficial.
But we hung on to one belief. The deep-
chested man was virile and healthy. He per-
sonified physical perfection. Millions exer-
cised day and night to deepen their chests,
but they were just as wrong as the exponents
of closed windows and spinach. Dr. S. A.
Weisman, of the University of Minnesota, at-
ter studying 22,000 people, has found flat
chests are a sign of physical superiority and
that there is a distinct correlation between
the depth of the chest and certain lung ail-

STILL A LONG DISTANCE FROM GOAL
Some progress is being made toward re-
armament-but we are still a mighty long
distance from our goal. Newsweek recently
surveyed the picture. According to it, on Jan-
uary 1 we had 4000 army planes-goal is
37,000. We had 2,590 navy planes-goal is
16,000. We had 1000 tanks and combat cars
-goal is 6,500. We had 600,000 soldiers-goa.
is 1,500,000. A good many of the planes, as
army men have testified, are trainers or art
obsolete. And a large proportion of the sol-
diers are new conscripts, with a year to go
before they will be versed in the military arts.
So far, of course, the defense program has
been largely in the tooling and plant expan-
sion stage. And it will remain in that stage
for some time to come, in the opinion of pro-
duction men. Most of what we are produc-
ing now is going abroad. There is no expec-
tation of building our own military establish-
ment to formidable dimensions in less than a
year. The navy program will require five
