Merchants of City ASKS WAR DECLARATION


Expecting Holiday

Business to Be Good

Stores Have Been Stocked' '
Heavily for Christmas ,
Shoppers


The biggest holiday shopping
season on record, is expected by
merchants of Port St. Joe who, in
spite of the war with Japan, are
busy making final arrangements
for an unprecedented shopping
rush during the next two .weeks.
Early shopping activities combined
with the brightest business out-
look for this section, in years in-
dicated a rapid movement of
stocks from shelves into the hands
-of holiday buyers.
While it is too early to predict
possible sales figures, it seems
certain that all previous records
will topple. All signs point *to a
bigger and heavier sack for Santa
Claus to tote this year.
Stores here have gaily bedecked
windows chockful of glamorous
merchandise designed to help the
shoppers select gifts for Mom,
Pop, Sister, Brother and little
Junior. Port St. Joe merchants
emphasize the fact that in spite of
a national shortage in many lines
of merchandise, they have been
able to obtain a full supply of
stocks for almost every depart-
ment, but ,in\spit.e of. the heaviest
Christmas buying local merchants
have done in years, the hordes' of


President Roosevelt, who Mon-
day asked congress to pass a
declaration of war against the
Japanese Empire, stating, "With
confidence in our armed forces
-with the unbounding determi-
nation of our people-we will
gain the inevitable triumph-so
help us God. I ask that the con-
gress declare that since the un-
provoked and dastardly attack
by Japan on Sunday, December
7, a state of war has existed be-
tween the United States and the
Japanese Empire."

All Preparations Underway for

Blackouts, Civilian and Util-
ities Protection and Evacu-
ation; Co-operation of All
Citizens Is Urged.

A meeting of the Gulf County
Defense Council was held Wednes-
day evening at the Port Inn, called
at request of state headquarters,
which urged the immediate com-
pletion of the organization as out-
lined previously.
Action was taken to put into op-
eration the 24-hour-a-day air raid
warning service, and also to see
that protection is given all indusi
tries against sabotage, particularly
the terminal facilities, of the
Southeatsern Pipe Line corpora-
tioni and. the St. Joe Paper com-
pany, both of which will be vital
factors in the all-out war effort.
Fire warden squads are being
organized for each block in the
city, as well as at various points
throughout the county, and ar-
rangements, are being made for
blacking out the city and setting
up plans for evacuation-especi-
ally our schools-in case of emer<

visions of the council right now
are fire protection and ,',:il p. ,

all citizens who have not yet vol-

the office of the defense council

they may be assigned to stations.

one in Port St. Joe and one in We-

Our Country Right or Wrong


IT HAS COME
FOR the past ten years, the editor of The
SStar has predicted that the United States
would eventually have to go to war with the
Japanese for domination of the P'acific-and
last Sunday that prediction came true with
the unexpected though not entirely unpre-
pared-for attack by the Nipponese.
After four years of war against China with
practically negligible results, the declaring of
war on the United States seems, in our opin-
ion, the signing by Japan of her death war-
rant as a major Pacific power. Of course,
this action taken by the Japs is at the insti-
gation of Adolf Schicklegruber (Hitler to
you) whose drive in Russia has been stale-
mated by Old Man Winter. He undoubtedly
held out rosy prospects to them, of territory
to be secured and loot to be taken, and prom-
ised them unlimited aid in their conquest.
'The action of Japan is pure aggression
and was instigated by the military to "save
face," even though it means the destruction
of the empire and the loss of hundreds of
thousands of lives and the destruction of mil-
lions of dollars in property.
The Japanese fleet is large enough ana
powerful enough to c a u s e considerable
trouble, and her air force is not to be sneezed
at, but with the combined forces of the Unites
States, Great Britain and their allies lined up
against her, there can be only one outcome
-the final setting of the Empire of the Ris-
ing Sun.
The conflict will be a bloody one, though
not necessarily long-drawn-out, and the peo-
ple of the United States, united and standing
shoulder to shoulder, will see that the job be-
fore them is properly done, secure in the
knowledge that everything possible had been
done to avert hostilities and that the right
is on their side.
Once more the blood of American youth
will flow, but, as in the past, it will be for
the freedom that is ours and in defense of
this greatest nation on the face of the globe.

THE BIG IDEA THAT WORKED
It was on December 15, 1789 just 152
years ago--that the Big Idea came into being.
It was a new idea of freedom-an idea that
SAmerican men and women had suffered and
fought and died for. It was an unprecedented
guarantee of the rights of man at a time when
men everywhere had no freedom.
It was'called the Bill of Rights.
It was called a lot of things by a lot ol
people. It was damned and praised, and hated
and loved. It was a dream; it was a fact. It
was tyranny and it was democracy. It would
never work, and it would always work.
To this day the argument goes on, though
under somewhat different circumstances than
those in which it began. The centuries, it
seems, have proven its worth to Americans
but not to the rest of the world.
Hitler, Mussolini and Hirohito have said
again and again that the American Bill ot
Rights is a nuisance and an imposition. They
would le onhl too glad to relieve us of our
burden of freedom. And don't thank them,
th1cv say--it's no trouble at all.
That's true. Throughout the centuries men
have lost their freedom without any trouble.
But preserving our freedom in this year of
H. M.. & H., 1941 (Hitler, Mussolini and Hiro-
hito) means a fight. It will be a winning
fig-t for us, because we are fighting for the
rights of the many--and the H. M. & H. com-
bine is fighting for the rights of H. M. &
H., as they always have.
Are our rights worth fighting for? There
is no more eloquent answer to that question
than the Bill of Rights itself.
Here it is, America They are your rights.
They are what we are fighting for today!
Read them carefully. And then remember
what the totalitarian countries have to offer!
BILL OF RIGHTS
1. There shall be freedom 'of religion,
speech and press in the United States.
Its people shall further have the right
to assemble peaceably and to petition
the government for redress.
2. The right of the people to keep and
bear arms shall not be infringed.
3. No soldier shall, in time of peace, be
quartered in any house without the
consent of its owner.
4. The people shall have the right to be
secure in their own homes against
unreasonable searches and seizures.
5. No person shall be deprived of life,
liberty or property without due pro-
cess of law.
6. Every person has the right to trial by
jury in all criminal prosecutions.
7. In common law, suits where the value
of the controversy exceeds $20 shall
be heard before a jury.
8. Excessive bail and fines shall not be
imposed, nor cruel and unusual pun-
ishments inflicted.
9. Basic rights of a democracy, not spe-
cifically mentioned by the Constitution
shall be retained.
10. Powers neither delegated nor pro-
hibited to the United States by the
Constitution are reserved to the indi-
vidual States.
That is what we are fighting for, and that
is what Hitler, Mussolini, Hirohito & Com-
pany want to take away from us.

"Nothing But the Truth" Playinc

Port Theatre

When Bob Hope makes a bel

for 24 hours, you can bet consider-
ably more than the price of ad.
mission to the Port theatre that
what will follow will be high-
,pee':, gag-glorious comedy.
Hope makes the wager in the
farce comedy, "Nothing But the
Truth," which plays at the Port
theatre Sunday and Monday. co-
starring Paule.:te Goddtard and fea-
turing .a comedy cast packed solid
with favorite names, including Ed-
wardi Arnold, Leif Erickson and
Helen Vinson.
Right now Hope is just about
tops in film comedy. His film fol-
lowing has been increasing by
leaps and bounds, until now his
eminence as a comedian is almost
undisputed. As for Paulette God-
dard, that young lady has been
shuttling back and forth between
comedy and d-rama for the past
few seasons.
"Nothing But the Truth," which
is adapted to the screen from a
famous stage comedy, concerns it-
self with a bet made by Bob T-Fno
in the role of a stockbroker. 4bhat
he can tell the truth for 24 hours
Sounds like great fun!

glowing prcdicions of a Christ-
mlas ';hloppi~nl g season running ino
billions oof dollars. The optimism
of Port St. Joe merchants is partly
tue .to the enthusiasm of other
merchants throughout the country.
A quick survey of Port St. Joe
stores indicate favorable prices for
shoppers. Because the merchants
placed their orders earlier than
usual ::.his year they benefitted
from the low prices then in effect.
A price comparison survey indi-
cates that there is but a slight
rise in prices over last year.. This
condition will hold only while pres-
ent stocks last. Merchants wil!
find wholesale and manufacturer's
prices much higher when they re-
plenish their stocks after the holi-
lay season, for as, the national de
fense effort goes all-out to whip
the Janps, many shortages in cer
tain lines of merchandise is ex.
pected.
The best advice to Mr. and Mrs.
Shopper seems to be, "Buy now.
ind buy while you can."

Editor Tired of Telling
People To Shop Early

(Continued from Page 1)
And when it comes to wrapping
and addressing packages, we fig-

know enough after being told, year

securely packed and wrapped, and
that strong paper and heavy
ftine should be used due to the
rough handling the pacr:ages, will
get, and that articles that could' be)
easily broken sitouid be packed
in such a manner that they won't
get broken and the package plainly
marked "Fragile." Not a word are
our readers going to get on this,
either.
Now when it comes to address-
ing a package, everybody knows
that the address should be as com-
plete as possible and that a return
address should be placed in the
upper left corner of every, piece of
mail and that postage should be
fully prepaid. So why should we
go to, all the trouble of telling
people something they already
know?
We 'believe that the public will
be able to get along all right this
Christmas without being told all
this boresome stuff again, so nary
a word are we going to say about
shopping early and mailing early.

lot of manpower, for we can't ex-

Every Child Likes

To Decorate Trec
Child development experts say
that children will enjoy Christmas
more if they help in getting the
house ready for the coming of old
Saint Nick. One of the most impor-
tant duties, especially to a child, is
that of decorating the tree.
A little boy or girl will love the
opportunity to cut out cardboard
stars, then dip them into a thick
mixture of water and laundry starch

Even the united efforts of these
children couldn't budge the huge
Christmas tree selected for their
schoolyard but they had a good
time trying to help.
and finally, sprinkle them with ar-
tificial snow. Small gourds, seed
pods and pine cones can be treated
in a like manner, after they've been
painted with quick-drying enamel,
-or with aluminum paint.
Much pleasure will be derived by
a child if he or she is allowed to
make strings of cranberries, pop-
corn or small pieces of stale bread
to hang on a special Christmas tree
for the birds. Later children can
string them about a shrub or tree
in the front yard, and watch the
birds enjoy Christmas, too.

Celebrations Mark

Christmas in China
In China the Christmas festival
among Christians is known as Sheng
Dan Jieh, the Holy Birth festival.
This celebration has gradually pen-
etrated inland.
Various paper decorations and ev-
ergreens adorn the churches and
homes. Paper. chains are made of
green, red, yellow and blue and are
suspended in interlocking festoons
from the ceiling. On the white walls,
large posters are hung. On them
are elaborate characters meaning
peace and joy.
No candles are used, but the trees
are decorated with paper flowers,


Pre-Christmas
SPECIAL RATE


colored paper chains and cotton
snowflakes.
There is usually an early service.
The church is kept dark except for
lanterns carried by the worshipers.
Carolers wend their way along the
road before dawn, singing the Chi-
nese words to such melodies as
"Hark, the Herald Angels Sing."
The service consists of reading the
Christmas message from the Bible,
music, dramatization of the manger
scene, and an offering for the poor.
Gifts are distributed to the chil-
dren. The packages contain such
things as tangerines, peanuts, pretty
picture cards (sometimes used cards
sent from America), candy and
western lead pencils.
Advertising doesn't cost-it PAYS!

As Christmas has been set aside
in all lands as' a day for doing

Bethlehem, N. H., Is Like
Tiny Village of Nativity
BETHLEHEM, N. H.-This peace-
ful little "Christmas town" nestled
in the New Hampshire hills bears
a striking resemblance to the Holy
Village for which it was named. Its
location is similar to that of Bethle-
hem in Judea, and, strangely
enough it is a village of inns and
Jewish people, just like the real
Bethlehem in the beautiful story of
the Christ Child. This similarity ex-
ists, however, only in summer when
32 magnificent hotels, taverns and
inns, nine of which observe the Jew-
ish dietary laws, are hosts to those
who come, year after year, to enjoy
the beauty of green fields and purple
mountains. At Christmastide the
population is less than a thousand
souls and most of them are natives
whose hardy ancestors built their
log cabins along Bethlehem streets
where the palatial hotels now stand.

TOYS? WHY LOCAL
STORES ARE PACKED
Port St. Joe stores have provided
a wonderful assortment of the toys
children like best. Here are dolls
and trains, and toy autos and foot-
balls. In fact, every kind and type
of gift that will make the young-
sters clap their hands with joy on
Christmas morning can be found
in the toy departments. You should
particularly see the wagons, tri-
cycles, scooters and bicycles on
display at the Gulf Hardiware com-
pany and the St. Joe Hardware
company.

Italian Woman's Dolls
Famous Around World
TURIN, ITALY. A lonely war
mother has created one of the
world's foremost doll factories here,
managed by Madame Lenci in a
fashion that would gladden Santa
Claus' heart. Madame Lenci's real
name is Signora Elena Konig di Sca-
vini. Born an artist, and developing
a passion for dolls as a child, she
started making them when her hus-
band was killed in the World war.
Now her Lenci dolls are made by
360 workers and she maintains a
sales exposition in the heart of Tur-
in. Madame Lenci's ideas come
from a big collection of historical
and geographic costume designs.
Her most famous order for dolls
was from Premier Mussolini for
four tigu.,.s to be presented to Japan
as gifts; They cost him more than
$100 each.

THERE'S SOME FOLKS
WE CANNOT PLEASE
Of course, if you can't make up
your mind whether it's to be a
super-charged roadster or a cabin
cruiser, we're terribly sorry, for
then we're of no use to you! But.
if you are buying gifts for the av-
erage man or woman, look through

marines and watch them dive in the
bathtub.
The main point, says Santa Claus,
is that "the American toy industry
is geared to give children their full
quota of happy play hours in 1941,
unshadowed by war."
That wasn't so in 1914 when Ger-
many was the world's greatest toy-
producing coun-
try. American-
made toys were a
-poor substitute.
But all that is
-; .[ changed. For the
e',- past 20 years
virtually all new
designs and im-
S'provements have
been initiated in
.. the United States'
S-toy shops.
Patriotic and national defense
themes are carried out in this year's
toys. The latter includes coast de-
fense guns and the like, all "sci-
entifically tested," in the interests
of society.
There will be the usual scientific
toys, dolls, and things-on-wheels, but
with improvements. In the first cat-
egory is a microscope using a pola-
roid light; in the second, China maid-
ens with "Hollywood glamour set-
coiffure"; and in the third, motor-
ized army equipment of the "latest
designs."
Defense isn't the only government
function reflected in toy designs. The
FHA's influence is apparent in a new
double-decker bunk calculated "to
eliminate crowding in doll houses."

God grants liberty only to those
who love it, and are always ready
to defend it.-Daniel Webster.

Men in Army, Navy
Await Yule Season
For men in the army and navy the
Christmas holidays are gala days.
Army furlough privileges permit
many men to visit their homes while
active field training is suspended.
Railroads last year cut their rates
drastically for the men in uniforms,
and it is expected the same will hold
true this Christmas season.
For those who remain in the
camps special Christmas dinners,
religious services and holiday festivi-
ties will be arranged. The same ar-
rangement will be made for men in
the fleet, few of whom will be able
to spend the holidays at home.

Poinsettia Lacks Yule Tradition
The poinsettia has no Christmas
tradition. Possessing beautiful red
and green leaves (the flowers them-
selves being the small yellow cen-
ters), and being available at this
season, the brilliance and color of
this plant add much to Christmas
decorations. The plant is native to
Central America and Mexico and
was adapted some years ago to cul-
tivation by Dr. Poinsett of Charles-
ton, S. C. It is distinctly modern
and American.
