Navy Recruiting

Officer Coming

Will Be At Legion Hut Tomorrow
To Sign Up All Interested In
Joining Navy or Reesrve

J. W. Clark, gunner's mate, first
class, navy recruiting officer sta-
tioned at Panama City, will be in
Port St. Joe tomorrow to contact
anyone interested in joining the
United States navy or the naval
reserve. He will be found all day
at the American Legion hut ad-
joining the Port theater.
The attention of selective serv-
ice draftees is called especially to
this fact, as the navy offers the
choice of some 40-odd trades which
may be learned while in service.
The naval reserve needs men be-
tween the ages of 17 and 50, par-
ticularly those with specialized
training.
Enlistment in the reserve is for
four years, but if a man enlists to-.
day and the emergency ends with-
in a period of several months, he
will be returned to civilian life as
soon as possible after the emer-
gency is over, and will not be re-
nuired to complete his four-year

Have Taken First Five Games
Of Ten-Game Schedule By
Top-Heavy Scores

The undefeated St. Joe Sharks
will play the most important game
of their football schedule when
they meet the strong and heavy
Blountstown Tigers on Centennial
Field tonight at 8 o'clock.
The Sharks, fresh from a 26-6
victory over Frink, are expecting
plenty of trouble from the heavy
team from Blountstown. It is re-
ported that the Tigers are much
stronger than they Were at the
opening of the season when they
had their only setback, Chattahoo-
chee defeating them by a score of
7 to 6.
Although the Sharks didl not
look as good against Frink as they
have looked in previous games,
they are expected to be in top
form tonight when they meet the
Tigers, and Coach Frank Hannon
believes they will take the long
end of the score, atlhough it might
be close.
Frink was first to score in the
game last Friday. Newsome took
a St. Joe punt on the midfield
stripe and raced untouched down
the sideline for a touchdown. The
try for extra point failed, and
Frink led 6-0.
The St. Joe boys. then cut loose
with a passing attack t;. score two
touchdowns and an extra point, to
lead 13-6 at half time. The Sharks
were able to score two more touch-
downs and an extra point during
the second half to win .by a score
of 26 to 6.
The Sharks, who have won the
first five games of their ten-game
schedule by top-heavy scores, will
be fighting for the West Florida
championship tonight, for if they
win this tilt they will hive a good
chance of taking the conference
honors.
Let's all turn out tonight and
root for the boys.

Tuberculosis

And What It Is

The Symptoms and What To Do
About It; Tuberculosis
Can Be Cured

By R. J. LAMB, M.D.
Health Department Director
Tuberculosis is caused by a liv-
ing germ. Outside of the body it
can do no harm. Inside the body
it causes illness. The germs must
be either breathed into the body
or carried into it from without.
This is by direct contact with an
open active case or may be carried
into the mouth on dirty hands,
dishes or any object that has been
contaminated from an open active
case of tuberculosis.
You may get bovine tubercuolsis
from drinking milk from infected
cows. This is why your government
has taken such drastic steps to
stamp o ut tuberculosis among
cattle. This work has boen carried
on so thoroughly that all dairy
herds in this state have been al-
most entirely rid of this type of
tuberculosis.
If tuberculosis attacked, the hu-
man as many other disabling dis-
eases, by causing illness within a
few hours or days. people would
become more interested in help-

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT
Data compiled by Tax Assessor Sammy
Patrick shows the total valuation for Gulf
county as being $8,280,205. Of this amount
$5,487,010 is exempt from taxation except for
millage levied for outstanding bonds prior to
the 1934 homestead exemption law and the
new industry law. That leaves $2,041,709 in
non-exempt real estate and $651,456 in per-
sonal property (including railroad, telephone
and telegraph properties) which is subject to
all county millage-a total of $2,693,165.
We find that in District 16, which is the
Port St. Joe district, and which elects but
one member to the board of county commis-
sioners, there is a valuation of $1,701,252 of
non-exempt property and $5,423,110 of ex-
empt property. This gives our district a total
valuation of $7,124,362, leaving a balance for
the rest of the county of $1,055,843. And the
rest of the county elects four members of
the board of commissioners!
It seems only logical, in order to secure
fair representation on our board of county
Commissioners, that District 16 should be di-
vided into two districts and one of the small
districts in the north part of the county be
consolidated with one of the other districts.
In order to accomplish this a special bill will
have to be passed by the state legislature,
and the citizens of Port St. Joe should see to
it that our senator and representative intro-
duce such a measure at the next session.
This district pays the greater portion of
the tax money for the upkeep of the county,
therefore it should have more say as to how
this money is spent.

Census figures are lacking-but it seems
to us more bass than ever before have "taken
the count" lately in Gulf county waters.

REDUCE NON-DEFENSE COSTS
With national defense costs rising, the
clamor for drastic reductions in non-defense
spending is at last being heard. Day by day
it has gathered strength in all parts of the
nation, and concrete suggestions for ways to
cut the federal budget by at least $2,000,000,-
000 without impairing governmental effici-
ency have been made.
High on the list of non-defense agencies
that may be slated for the axe are the Na-
tional Youth Administration and the Civilian
Conservation Corps. Developed originally as
emergency agencies to care for youth caught
in the depression, the need for spending huge
sums in this field is rapidly disappearing.
Purging the government of either or both
of these agencies is going to be a tough job.
Experience has shown that bureaus created
for emergency purposes have a habit of liv-
ing beyond their usefulness..
Economy-minded congressmen are making
a determined fight to carry this campaign of
reduction into the federal government. If
congress shows the people that the United
States is serious enough in its defense pro-
gram to sacrifice in other non-essentials, they
will accept personal sacrifices more willingly.
But the initiative is up to congress. It
must show that the national welfare comes
ahead of political expediency and vote-get-
ting. If the people are convinced that the
money is going to make the United States
strong, there will be little kick about heavy
taxation. But if unnecessary bureaus and
agencies are to be retained in order that the
congressmen may be assured of being re-
turned to office, there's going to be one
heluva howl raised.

SILENT SOLDIERS
The four horsemen have ridden hard this
year. They have brought War, Famine, Pes-
tilence and Death to a large part of the world.
It will take every last ounce of strength and
knowledge possessed by mankind to halt
their sweeping horror. Before many weeks
pass, the great annual Christmas Seal cam-
paign will begin. The funds from these little
seals are used to fight one of the most power-
ful of the horesmen's allies-tuberculosis.
The death rate from tuberculosis has been
cut three-fourths in the past 30 years, but it
still is a major problem. With the world
again facing conditions that will make a fer-
tile field for a new outbreak of the disease,
it behooves the individual to look with new
significance this year on the cheery seals
adorning his greeting cards. They are silent
so,'icrs in a gigantic battle, a crucial battle
between humanity and the four horsemen.

This is a queer and funny era.
You'll look high and low and find
no one who is sure of anything-
except that trouble is lurking just
around the corner.
Farmers don't know which way
to turn. Whether tt raise more or
to raise less keeps 'em in a quan-

tary. Otherwise, if he just farms
and raises what he can raise best,
he may do the wrong thing and
find himself in a government jail.
Everybody is fearful of something.
It may be inflation. It may be

THE BLACK CAT


Vivid Drama Is

Coming to Port


Greer Garson and Walter Pidgeor
Play Sunday and Monday In
"Blossoms In the Dust"

Inspired by the life of Edna
Gladney, a woman who has placed
more than 2000 babies in happy
homes, "Blossoms In the Dust,"
coming to the Port theatre Sun-
day and Monday, co-stars Greet
CGnson a.nd Walter Pidgeon.
Besides departing from the usual
IHollywood tormual for drama, the
film, in Technicolor, shies away
from the ordinary brilliant tones
formerly used and for the first
time uses color as a means of fur-
thering the plot rather than catch-
ing the eye.
Miss Garson and Pidgeon have
an opportunity as Edna and Sam
Gladney to depict one of the
screen's tenderest romances, and
their work in establishing a home
for unwanted youngsters brings
the problems and struggles of the
pioneer workers in the field of
child welfare to the screen for the
first time.
The story traces the life of a
beautiful girl from the time of her
meeting with an Impetuous Texan
to their marriage. Mellowed by a
life which sees ner through the
loss of both her-husband and child,
she devotes the remaining years to
finding homes and a proper en-
vironment for thousands of home-
less waifs.

Local Rotarians Attend
Meeting In Panama City

Rotarians from Tallahassee to
Pensacola were represented at a
meeting in Panama City last Fri-
day night when approximately 75
aLturdled the fish fry held on the
Cove Hotel beach, with the Pan-
ama City club acting as host.
Harry Hall, district governor of
Alabama Rotar:, clubs, was the
principal speaker. He outlined the
aims of Rotary and what it is do-
ing in the present world crisis.
;Rotary has clubs in over seventy
nations and thus has a native po-
sition in the world crisis," said the
speaker. "The manner in which the
club members work for humanity
during this period of unrest is
more than commendable." Hall
stressed t he many accomplish-
ments of clubs in the United
States and gave examples of the
achievements of Alabama clubs in
child welfare work.
A negro quartet, presented as
part of the evening's entertain-
ment through the efforts of the
Port St. Joe club, added to the
varied program.
Friday night's gathering was
unique in its manner of presenta-
tion, and considered a "splendid
move for inter-club relationship."
President Dr. A. H. Lisenby of the
Panama City club presided over
the meeting.
Among Port St. Joe Rotarians
attending were Dr. A. L. Ward, B.
B. Conklin, Kenneth Creech, W.
H. Wellington, Floyd Hunt, J. L.
Miller, Robert Bellows, Basil E.
Kenney, M. P. Tomlinson, Basil E.

port of the city in the clean-up

Assurance was given by the

ance pertaining to same will be
enforced.

:ng to find and' control it. But
this is not the case, and a person
may be sick for months or years,
spreading the disease innocently
before it is known. This is why
everyone should go to their physi-
cian for a periodic check-up. If
you are not financially able to do
this, you should go to your health
department and they will aid you
;n every way.
There are a number of early
symptoms that should prompt you
to have this physical checkup:
1. Fatigue, the unexplained feel-
ing of tiredness, listlessness, etc.
2. Indigestion, loss of appetite.
3. A cough that may persist for
a long time.
4. Loss of weight without any
apparent reason.
5. The spitting of blood from
the mouth.
6. If you have unexplained pains
in your chest accompanied with
so.ne of these other symptoms you
should go at once to your doctor.
7. A constant daily rise in tem-
perature, mostly in the afternoon.
rhis is an important symptom.
The X-ray unit will be in Wewa-
hitchka Friday afternoon, Novem-
ber 7, and in Port St. Joe all day
ninrdlay, Noivember S, for tile
purpose of giving chest examina-
tions. Watch The Star for infor-
na!tion as to where these clinics
will be held. Consult your doctor
or the health department for re-
quest slips to have this service
rendered.
All this is for your protection.

Port theater, appeared before the

of admission 25 cents.
Mayor J. L. Sharit told Mr. Mar-

taken up by the board and be
given full consideration.
