New Ford Is Now

On Display At the

St. Joe Motor Co.

Otto Anderson Invites Gulf
County Motorists to View
New Model; Comes With 6
Or 8-Cylinder Motor.

IThe St. Joe Motor company an-
nounces the arrival of the 1942
Fords, one of which is now on dis-
play in their showroom on Monu-
ment avenue, and W. 0. Anderson
is anxious that motorists of Gulf
county visit the showroom today
and see first-hand the result of
niany months planning-the 1942
Ford.
A distinctive frontal design sets
the style for the new passenger
car line. A rustless steel radiator
grille blends gracefully with an en-
ir-cly new front contour which
features a new arrangement of
headlights and parking lamps, con-
ribluting massiveness to smart
styling.
As in past years, the new car is
presented in ihree lines the
Super DeLuxe, DeLuxe and Spe-
cial. each series having a distinct
tive trim. The Super DeLuxe and
the DeLuxe lines are offered with
either the famous V-8 or the new
Ford "6" engines.
Engineering improvements em.
phasize comfort and safety, and
the same attention to finished de
tail that is apparent in the ex-

terior of the new models is noted
at once inside the car. Smart
styling, fine materials and excel-
lent design have produced the
most beautiful and comfortable in-
teriors that Ford ever has offered.

THE TATTLER 7
EDITED BY THE SENIOR CLASS
OF PORT ST. JOE HIGH SCHOOL
~4~/cu 'N.


SENIOR CLASS ELECTS
OFFICERS FOR YEAR
Last week the seniors had their
first class meeting of the year in
oredr to eleot officers. They are
as follows:
President, Marguerite Williams;
vice-president, John Lane; secre-
tary and treasurer, Jack Joughin.
They also elected an editor and
two reporters for "The Tattler,"
who are: Buck Walters, editor;
Marigene Smith and Fay Scheffer,
reporter.
These members feel that they
have vdry responsible positions
and are going to do their best to
fulfill their duties at all times.

SENIOR PRIVILEGES
ARE DRAWN UP
The seniors have been very busy
these first few weeks of school,
but not too busy to get their priv-
ileges. They have tried to select
ones this year that can stand for
years ti' come, and that the whole
student body can be proud of.
Listed, they are.
1-A senior study hall.
2-A "wreck week" in which the
seniors will in-:iate the freshmen
into high school.
S-Being allowed to come into
the halls in the morning, at recess
and at noon.
4-Student body must stand as
the seniors march into and out of
chapel.
5-A "Senior Day" off from
school.
6-A student council with a
president, vice-president and secre-
tary elected from the senior class
and representatives from other
classes.
7-Re-examinations for seniors.
Other privileges will be added to
this list during the year, provided
the facutly committee approves.

CLASS RINGS TO HAVE
MONUMENT CREST
The seniors, after looking over
and discussing two different com-
pany's rings, decided to order
them from the Herff Jones com-
pany.
The rings this year are going to
have a monument crest on them,
which will be very outstanding. So,
if in about five or six.,weeks you
see some seniors walking around
town holding their hands out-you
will know why!

SENIORS INTRODUCED
AT CHAPEL PROGRAM
The student 'body was well en-
tertained Thursday morning of
last week at chapel by the junior
class.
The devotional was given by
Lenora Johnson, after which Joyce
Morris led in a few school songs.
As our band director, Howell
Hampton, was leaving, he enter-
tained by playing a few selections
on his cornet and accordion.
Last, but not least, Jack Shiver
introduced the seniors, telling of
their hobbies, talents, and reading
(Continued on Page 6)


N THESE UNUSUAL TIMES we invite you to
inspect an unusual new car-new in its beauty,
its comfort, its choice of two fine 90 horsepower
engines, 6 cylinders or 8.
See it and you sense at once that here is new
style that will stay good for years. On a lower,
wider chassis, we have designed new long, low,
wide and modern lines.
Interior treatment is entirely fresh, distinctive,
pleasing. The beauty of this Ford will more than
hold its own in any company.
Inside, the car is big-wide across the seats,
generous in knee-room, leg-room, elbow-room.
On the road this year you find the "new Ford
ride" still further advanced in its softness, quiet-
ness, steadiness and all-round comfort.


At the wheel, you will find driving easier than ever.
Steering, gear-shifting, action of the big and sure
hydraulic brakes have all been made smoother
and easier.
In quality, the car is sound to the last detail.
Defense requirements have all been met without
a single reduction in the basic and lasting good-
ness of the Ford mechanically. Some new materials
have replaced old ones, usually at a greater cost
to us, but in every case the new is equal to or better
than the old.
If your family needs a new car, go see and drive
this Ford. For what it is today and for what it will
be through the years ahead, we believe that you will
find in it more and better transportation for your
money than you have ever found before.

PLOW UNDER THE PORK BARREL
The record-breaking tax bill that Ameri-
cans will have to pay this year emphasizes
once again the immediate need for economy
in government expenditures. Substantial cuts
can be made in non-defense items, provided
pork barrel politics can be forgotten long
enough to permit them to be made. This may
be done by the investigating committee ap-
Spointed by congress, more of which will be
found on this page under the title, "A Mild
Silver Lining."
Many of us fail to realize that non-defense
spending has doubled within the past ten
years. Every year since 1931 Washington has
spent more money than it has collected. To-
day's rate of tax collection is double that of
the peak of the World War period. Untold
billions of defense spending are being piled
on a tremendous level of civil spending.
These non-military expenditures have only
been reduced by a comparatively few millions
since the emergecny began-and this in spite
of the fact that millions of people recently
unemployed are now working. The govern-
ment debt has reached gigantic proportions
and is steadily going up.
This debt has a tremendous effect upon
the standard of living of every one of us. To-
day the average person pays about 25 per
cent of his income in direct and indirect taxes.
Every wasted dollar-every unnecessary ex-
penditure means that he has to pay more
money to the government. It means that he
has that much less to spend for the necessi-
ties and luxuries that every American family
needs and wants.
Today, when the rest of us are pulling in
our belts to help pay for the defense program
that we must have, it's time to insist that
Washington pull in its belt, too. In the past
it has had considerable experience in plowing
under pork. WVhy not plow under the pork
barrel now?
Write Senator Claude Pepper and Repre-
sentative P1ob Sikcs today in regard to this
matter.

Fancy the Fuehrer, "the greatest military

It was Mussolini's humiliation to be res-
cued in North Africa by the Germans and to
be saved by them from final disaster in
Greece. But now he has the sardonic satisfac-
tion of hearing his bosses beg for aid. Will
he send them his legions? Not if those le-

direction.-Atlanta Journal.

DOG FLY ERADICATION

A project of outstanding importance to the
Gulf Coast area from the Aalbama line at
Perdido Bay eastward to Carrabelle is that
which has as its aim the eradication of the
dog fly. After a survey extending over a con-
siderable period of time by which government
experts sought to determine the breeding
grounds of this pest, the eradication effort
has been started.
The work is beingcarried on under the su-
pervision of W. E. Dodge of the federal bu-
reau of entomology, who has been engaged
in a study of the dog fly for two years past.
More than 165 miles of shoreline will be
covered by the project which has been started
within the last several days. Engineers in
charge of the work say they are enthusiastic,
too, ovUr the prospects of eradicating the
;est.-. !Prhaps they will at least bring it un-
cler such control that it no longer will makl
life miserable for persons who come within
range of its migrations in the early fall.
Sprayers are mounted on barges and pulled
along the shores of bayous, bays and sounds
to k1i the pIpae and larvae of the fly which
is now known to be deposited in grasses com-
mon along the beaches in the area from Per-
dido to Apalachicola Bay.
A mixture of creosote and oil is sprayed on
the grass, and it is believed this will do a
good job of eradication. If so, what long han
been an objection of vacationists to spending
time along the west Gulf Coast late in the
summer or early in the fall will have been
removed. For downright meanness, the dog
fly can give the mosquito a big handicap and
then beat it forty ways.
Ordinarily an angry swish of the hand will
scare off a mosquito, but not so with the dog
fly. The latter pest, once he imbeds his fangs
-that's what they feel like-in the flesh, he
stays there until he is knocked loose or
mashed. And wherever one is mashed, a fiery
itching starts and stays for quite a while.
Fortunately the dog fly season is not long,
otherwise the people couldn't stand a com-
munity where the pest breeds.
Its elimination certainly will add much to
the attractiveness of the waterfront area
covered by the eradication project, than
which there is none more beautiful in Florida.
-Florida Times-Union.

MILD SILVER LINING
Beileve it or not, there's a mild sort of sil-
ver lining to the $3,553,400,000 tax bill just
enacted by congress which is expected to
lioost federal revenues above the $13,000,000,-
000 mark next year. It goes by the name of
Title VI, Section 601 of the tax bill. Credit
for this strange-named silver lining goes to
Senator Ilarry P1. Byrd of \irginia who
pushed through an amendment to the record-
smashing bill that calls for appointment of a
iint committee to recommend cuts in non-
,iCdnse spending, a move advocated by The
Star for the past two years, although we
.n 't claim credit for it, being x- ay down here
in ix)ic anl having but four copies of our
paIe'r pinMg' to ihe national capital.
Thle c.nlmu)ittee is authorized to conduct an
ii\-,stig;:ioti on and recommend eliminations or
reductions of non-essential spending. l-igbh
hopes are held for this committee. It marks
the first time in some 22 years that congress
has approved something like congressional
budgetary control. And many believe it may
save us as much as a billion dollars a year-
which even in these days of tossing billions
around can come in pretty handy.

one else, the great big world goes 'round and

Is it necessary to be a high
school graduate in order to en-
lis. in the Navy?
No. Navy enlistees need not be
high school graduates. All appli-
cants will be given an examina-
tion containing approximately 100
questions. A grade of 50 per cent
or better on this examimnaiion is
sufficiently high to pass the Navy
educational standards. ii.cve
a high school education wil' he
valuable to the seaman dtiring his
Navy enlistment.

If I enlist in the Navy or Naval
Reserve, will I be sent to a
Navy Trade School?
All new recruits are sent to one of
four Naval Training Stations and
after a training period they may
take examinations for entrance
into Navy Trade Schools. Those
recruits who pass their examina-
tions with sufficiently high grades
are sent to Navy Trade Schoo!s
before assignment to the fleet.
While attending these schools,
they will receive regular Navy
pay and free schooling valued at
$1500.

What is the greatest possible
pay I can expect to earn during

What does the term "ash can"
mean in the Navy?
An "ash can" is a slang term ap-
plied to the depth charge used to
combat submarines. The average
"ash can" is a container filled,.
with approximately 300 pounds of
T.N.T. and can be dropped over-
board from a ship and so con-
trolled as to explode at depths
ranging from 36 to 300 feet. These
are generally carrfid by the fast
ships in the fleet, as a boat drop-
ping a charge regulated to ex-
plode at 70 feet depth must move
away from the explosion area at a
speed of 25 knots or more. These
"ash cans" are either rolled off
the stern or shot from "y-guns"
which hurl one right and one left
simultaneously.

"And I've had two payrae


in only eight months! I'll say

you can't beat Uncle Sam's Navy!"


YOU couldn't ask for a greater thrill than
that which a fellow gets when he comes
back home wearing a trim Navy uniform. The
folks crowd around. They all want to know
where you've been, what you've done. And
man, do you have stories to tell!

GREATEST LIFE IN THE WORLD
You're proud. And you should be. For you've
been leading the greatest life in the world.
And it's a thrill to tell about it, too. A thrill to
see the admiration in the eyes of the One and
Only Girl as you tell about the first time you
steered a Destroyer. Or handled a P.T. Boat
at more than 45 miles per hour. Or stepped
out in front of your shipmates to receive your
first promotion.


And with that promotion came an increase
in pay. And there were more to come. Second
Class. First Class. And then Chief Petty
Officer. Many might even go to Annapolis.
Or to Pensacola with the flying cadets!
Exciting? You bet, and fun too. Something
doing all the time. Real he-man's stuff. Box-
ing. Baseball. Football. Swimming. AND
MOVIES... previews, too!
