The money given by 1400 coun

that the local chapter was able t

One of the most recent call

Still another important work o

SCHOOL SPIRIT
How many students of the St.
J.oe high school really have school
spirit? If you were to ask the stu-
dents this question, three-fourths
would say they had it. But do they
co-operate with the teachers? Do
they go directly to the pep squad
at the football games? Neither
three-fourths or even one-quarter
could answer "Yes" to those ques-
tions.
We admit we have a better pep
squad this year than last, but we
could have a better one still. We
have six cheer leaders, but they
alone cannot make up a good pep
squad-they need co-operation of
not just a few but all of the stu-
dents to make a pep squad that
other schools will admire.
So come on, students, and let's
show them we have real school
spirit!

WASH DAY
Tuesday was, "wash day" for
the football boys. They got real
energetic and washed their jerseys,
They should really shine tonight
when they prance out on the field
prepared to mow down the Sop-
choppy gridders.


THIS AND THAT
The library has a new bookshelf
thanks to Mr. Palmer.
We wonder why so, many people
got the wrong idea and thought
two certain persons were getting
married Friday night?
B. S. seems to be slipping with
her new beau.

girls can't get along without him,
but they seem to be doing alright.
It seems like M. J.'s blonde

JOKE?

don kiss you?"
Julaine: "Let him! I had to help

'DIVINE HEALER' TO 5 YEARS'
J. R. Lyons, colored, who set
himself up in business in this city
some time back as a "divine
healer" and established a flourish-

eral white persons, was sentenced
to five years in jail Wednesday
morning by Judge E. C. Welch in
circuit court at Wewahitchka.
Charges against Lyons, a West
Indian negro, were practicing med-

The spoken word is given scant attention;
the printed word is thoughtfully weighed.
The spoken word barely asserts; the printed
word thoroughly convinces. The spoken word
is lost; the printed word remains.

SPEAKING OF PROPAGANDA
SITLL.R'S stooges in this country, such as
Lindbergh, Wheeler and others, aren't the
only ones spreading propaganda although
theirs is the real McCoy.... There is
propaganda of every type and variety, affect-
ing almost every business and profession,
flowing across the desk of the editor of The
Star every day-reams, bushels and bales of
it-the greater portion of which finds its way
to the waste basket without being read.
For instance, here is a dozen mimeographed
pages paid for by the railroads showing why
the Florida ship canal should not be built.
Here's several sheets, probably paid for by
canal advocates, whooping it up about the car
shortage and what it will mean to the nation's
shippers and consumers.
The government floods us with propa-
gandda for the Rural Electrification Admin-
istration, paid for at the expense of the tax-
payers and sent through the mails free of
charge to add to the annual deficit of the
..postoffice department, and the privately-
owned electric companies come back, through
various agencies, with counter-propaganda
.showing the evils of government-owned
utilities.
The evils of chain stores are expounded at
length by writers for the independent gro-
cers' associations and the chain
stores retort with stacks of literature
showing how they are being taxed out of
business in spite of the fact that they are a
boon to the human race in a dozen different
ways.
Manufacturers' press services send us clip
sheets pointing out how labor is holding
them up for higher wages and is hindering
the defense program. Labor organi-
zations attempt to counteract this with ma-
terial showing how industrialism is grinding
the working man under its iron heel and rak-
ing in untold profits from the sweat of his
brow.
These are but a few samples of the propa-
ganda that passes over the editor's desk into
the waste basket. And on top of this sort of
balderdash there comes hundreds of letters
weekly from federal agencies and bureaus
stressing their importance and what they are
doing for the "deer peepul"-at the expense
of said "deer peepul." Every state department
and- agency also has its own private propa-
ganda plant issuing "news" stories lauding
to high heaven its activities and its person-
nel. And then there are stories and mats frorh
hundreds of manufacturers seeking free
publicity about their products.
If The Star attempted to print even one-
tenth of this "news" material, it would re-
quire at least eight extra pages every week,
and it is doubtful that even if it were
printed that our readers would take the time
to read any great amount of it.
Verily, this is the day of propaganda, and
there are thousands who are waxing fat
through the spreading of it, even though but
a small portion of it finds its way into print.

In case of emergency," New York's 11,000
taxicabs would rush evacuees out of the me-
tropolis. Sounds like a Sunday driver's night-
mare come true.-St. Petersburg Times.


TOLERANCE
The longer we live, the more disposed we
are to place a premium upon the trait oftoT-
erance.
In our early youth we remember the con-
tempt in which we used to hold anyone who
conducted themselves in a manner which did
not happen to pass the approval of our ideal-
istic theme of life.
Gradually we have noted a change in our-
self and we have been less and less disposed
to try to regulate the lives of others.
We have observed the attitude of men
older and wiser than we are by far, and note
that those among them who are entitled to
be called plilosophers--those who appear to
know life-are quickest to excuse the faults
and frailties of their fellow men.
The fellow w ho is little inside continues,
regardless of his age or of his experience, to
condemn every act of his fellow men which
may in any way be subject to criticism.
But, by and large, give us a man who views
life and his fellow men with'a tolerant spirit.
In our book he is a man to tie to; a man to
be depended upon; a man well worth having
as a friend-a man who after his mortal cycle
is ended may well expect whatever reward
awaits any admirable mortal being.-Polk
County Democrat.

FAVORING THE LEFT-HANDED
The world is becoming more complicated
all the time, and now steps are at last being
taken to give the left-handed citizen a fair
break with his right-handed brothers.
A Memphis bank has introduced left-
handed check books to its southpaw patrons.
The stub is on the right side of the check,
so the worried check-writer won't have to
cross hands in order to hold stubs out of the
way while writing.
Maybe some enterprising newspaper pub-
lisher will try out a left-handed newspaper
to increase his circulation among southpaws.

Every week The Star receives notices of
examinations for civil service jobs in almost
every conceivable trade and profession. We
would have to devote about half our available
space in order to publish them, and that we
cannot do. But if you have a trade or profes-
oion, or any special training of any kind, and
want a civil service job, there is porbably one
open for you. You can find out by giving
your qualifications to the clerk in charge at
your local postoffice, who will supply you
with information.

If a man is outspoken in his opinions he
loses friends. If he keeps his mouth shut he
is termed a grouch and loses friends. But
the kind of friends he loses by keeping his
mouth shut he can well afford to lose.

very necessary work in our sc-bols.
