Tom Owens, Gulf county super-

'Tondlay received a report from the
office of Colin English in regard
to this county's schools.
The report stated that -the We-

ment, and limited recognition is
given the. Port St. Joe school.
Four other white schools and all
of the negro schools in the county
are not as yet state recognized.
The document said: "State re-
ports, show the highest rating for
Gulf county schools in qualifica-
tions of teachers and principals,
administration and instructional
aids (including school libraries).
Principal school needs include bet-
ter preparation for fire emergency,
placing of all school activities un-
der the principal's control and, in
one school, improved lighting, tol-
let facilities and classroom walls."
A state-wide summary shows
that at least one-fourth of the

Talk At Meeting
Tallahassee Visitor Urges Closer
Business Relations Between the
Farmer and Urban Citizen
Principal speaker of 'the evening
at the meeting of the Port St. Joe
Kiwanis club held at the Port Inn
Thursday evening of last week
was J. V. Knaipp, Tallahassee KI-
wanian, who spoke on "Agriculture
and the National Defense Program
As It Is Affected by, the Impact of
War," as a part of the Rural
Trade Stimulation Week program,
,He stated -that Kiwanis is inter-
es.ted in rural trade stimulation
because there should be a closer
business relation between the far-
mer and urban citizen, based on
their mutual understanding and
appreciation of each other's busi-
ness and their attitude toward it.
He said that the differences be-
tween farmers and city men are
purely superficial. Both read. the
same newspapers, listen to the
same radio programs and ride in
the same make of cars; that here-
in lies opportunity for Kiwanis to
foster not only the principles of
the Golden Rule, but to promote
an increase in rural trade by
adopting some such slogan as
"Values to be exchanged must be
Mr. Knapp, going fully into the
many phases of his subject, stated
that agriculture is called. our pri-
mary industry, but that it is more
'than-that-it is life itself.
An unexpected guest was Wal-
ter Ingram of Kiwanis Interna-
tional headquarters at Chicago,
Swho spoke briefly on basic ideals
lof Kiwanis, driving home the
thought that those joining Kiwanis
with the idea of political or busi-
ness gain would not make good
members, since the ideal of KI-
wanis is not what one can selfish-
ly, gain, but service to fellow men

WHAT WOULD 'OLD HICKORY' DO?
We were thinking last evening about what
Andrew Jackson would do to Hitler if he
were here today-in the White House, pre-
After considering "Old Hickory's" many
activities we reached the conclusion that if
he were here today he would lick the living
tar out of Hitler.
Who can doubt what Jackson's foreign
policy would be? Witness his settlement of
the Spoliation Claims against France, totaling
25,000,000 francs, owing since the Napoleonlc
Wars. France had paid all nations except us.
Presidents came and went, none of them get-
ting anywhere against France's barrier of pb-
lite evasion and delay. Jackson ordered the
secretary of the treasury to write out a draft
on France for the first installment due.
When the draft came back unpaid, he or-
dered the navy ready for sea duty. France
honored the draft.
The incident was typical, not exceptional.
Genuine respect for American rights abroad
dates from Jackson. He reduced complex
problems to terms anyone could understand.
He would have seen the present conflict as
presenting the American people a choice be-
tween continuing their way of life and fight-
ing for it-or accepting Hitler's.
More than any other chieftain of our re-
public, Andrew Jackson exemplified the power
of WILL-the ascendency of spirit to lead
men to deeds beyond their strength and to
triumph over odds so great that ordinary folk
stood in terror of them.
The Georgia legislature, upon the urgent
pleas of the railroad interests, refused to
allow the Southeastern Pipe Line company to
run its Port St. Joe-Chattnooga tube under
railroads and highways.
Secretary of the Interior Harold Ickes, in
the interest of national defense, requests that
Georgia cut gasoline consumption one-third
due to shortage of the commodity on the east
coast, which situation would not have oc-
curred had this and other pipe lines been al-
lowed to proceed with construction.
Result will be that Georgia will lose about
$8,000,000 in revenue derived from the six-
cent tax on gasoline which annually raises
approximately $25,000,000, or nearly one-half
of the state's tax revenue.
State auditor says such a move would force
Georgia to adopt drastic economies or else
raise new taxes

PAUL REVERE'S HORSE
Announcement of a tiny new auxiliary en-
gine that will extend the flying range of
bombers, now in mass production for the
navy, brought about a brief spurt of interest
in its inventor, Charles L. Lawrance. Law-
rance has invented other airplane engines in
his time which were used to break existing
flight records, but he has never sought or re-
ceived public attention.
The occasion of his latest invention, which
will be of great service to defense, calls to
mind a story told concerning him. Once a
well-wisher inquired why Lawrance seldom
received credit when others, who depended
upon his inventions for their success, were

"In 1942 America will enter the

America trouble is brewing."
Some forecasts made by Boriska
have come to pass with extraordi-
nary precision. During the closing
months of 1935 she wrote:
"In January 1936 the king of a
mighty empire will suddenly die.
He will be succeeded by his eldest
son, but the reign of his successor
will not exceed 12 months, after
which time he will renounce the
January, 1936, King George V
died. King Edward, who succeeded
him, abdicated one year later to
marry Wally Simpson, and became
Duke of Windsor.
Going beyond the present war,
Boriska also prophesied: "The
world after the peace will be so
different and there will be such so-
cial and national upheavals that it
is impossible to describe it."
Where Boriska made her big mis-
take was in predicting Hitler's
death "swiftly and dramatically"
-which sounds like a prophecy of

'A Shot In the Dark'
Owl Show Picture at Port Packed
With Suspense; It Should
Please Mystery Fans
A film that will please all mys-
tery fans (and also those who are
not mystery fans) with its in-
triguing plot, is "A Shot In the
Dark," which plays at the Port
theater's Owl Show tomorrow eve-
ning at 10:30.
A picture backed with suspense.
perfectly cast and excellently di-
rected, it will prove entertaining
movie fare for everyone The'
story involves an innocent man
who for some sirange reason con-
f'sslos to: two brutal murders.
William Lundigan gives a fine
performance in the role of a
newsnaperman whose sideline is
amateur sleuthing and\ gets plenty
of opportunity to show his mettle
when the police are baffled by the
two murders. Nan Wynn is right
at home in her portrayal.of a night
club singer. She is the one person
who can make Lundigan forget
about crime and everything else
when she's around.
Ricardo Cortez plays the part of
a night club owner with plenty of
trouble. They are racketeers, mur-
derers, and the nost complex of
all, a jealous ex-girl friend, bril-
liantly portaryed byi Lucia Carroll.
When she and a friend of Cortez'
are murdered, he is blamed by the
police. However, an alert detective,
palyed by Regis Toomey, doesn't
agree with his colleagues and to-
gether with Lundigan sets out to
prove Cortez innocent.
For action, thrills, adventure and
a surprise ending "A Shot In the
Dark" cannot be siLipassed.
