Local Merchants

Are Experiencing

Good Business

Merchandise Is Moving Off
Shelves Rapidly, Indicating
Biggest Season Ever

Christmas shopping in Port St.
Joe tobk a spurt this week, and
merchants are planning to keep
their stores open evenings, start-
ing tonight, until Christmas Eve.
Local merchants are wearing
happy, smiles as merry shoppers
crowd their stores. The tinkle of
rash registers resounds throughout
the city and merchants are not a
bit backward in predicting the
biggest holiday season ever.
That the war situation has
-thrown a shadow over holiday
buying can not be denied, but ap-
parently it has not affected, sales.
One merchant said "The shoppers
wear more serious looks and talk
about the war, but maintain a
cheerful attitude despite America's
entrance into hostilities."
Another merchant pointed out
that the government's war efforts
will benefit greatly from Christ-
mas shopping all over the nation
because of extra taxes on practic-
ally all merchandise.: "The Ameri-
can people realize," he said, "that
until they are actually called for
some service, they rcan best serve
their country by'reni.iniml, calm
and carrying on- in the usual man-
ner.'
All merchants are encouraging
the purchase of United States De-
'fense Bonds and Savings Stamps
and suggesting their use .as Christ-
mas gifts.

Vital Defense

Pipe Line To Be

Dedicated Today

Huge Pumps Started Here
This Week Forcing Gaso-
line To Atlanta

The huge pumps at the Gulf
terminus of the Southeastern Pipe
Line corporation's 456-mile pipe
line, located in this city, Tuesday
started gasoline surging northward
through the nation's newest vital
and timely transportation artery,
the Port St. JoeChattanooga pipe
line.
The line will be dedicated to
the service of national defense at
ceremonies :to be held in Atlanta,
Ga., today in which national lead-
ers will participate, including
Georgia's senior senator, Walter
F. George; Congressman William
P. Cole Jr., of Maryland, chairman
of the petroleum subcommittee of
the house of representatives, and
Ralph K. Davies of Washington, D.
C., deputy petroleum co-ordinator
andi an internationally recognized
authority on petroleum.
It was the line's potential im-
portance in relieving the demand
for oil tankers caused by the
transfer !of 50 tankers to British
aid service that led President
Roosevelt, on several occasions, to
insist that the pipe line must be
completed. Incidentally, all llh

Navy Announces

Modification of

Physical Exams

Many Applicants Rejected In Past
Due to Minor Defects May Ap-
ply For Re-examination

A relaxation of physical stan-
dards for enlistments in the U. S.
Navy and the Naval Reserve has
been announced by the navy de-
partment. The announcement says
that numerous men who in past'
months have sought to enlist and
have been rejected on the basis of
minor physical defects will, be-
cause of the modification of physi-
cal standards, be encouraged to
re-applyi for enlistment in either
the regular navy or the naval re-
serve for the duration of the
emergency.
Applicants with varicose veins
will be acceptable under the low-
ered, standards, this varicocele
condition to be corrected, if the
condition is painful, at the naval
training stations to which the re-/
cruits are sent. Hydrocele, another
defect that formerly ruled out nu-
merous applicants, will be cor-
rected, if necessary. Applicants
suffering from hernia will be ac-
cepted provided their I. Q.'s are
75 or better. They will be treated
at the training stations and will
be enrolled for schooling during
their periods of convalescence.
Other physical defects whic:l
formerly prevented men from oe-
ing accepted as recruits, but which
now are waived, are seasonal hay
fever, correctible nasal deformi-
ties or nasal deformities of such Ei
degree as not' to interfere with
duty, undernourished and under-
developed applicants providing the
condition is not due to organic
disease, and minor surgical de-
fects which can be corrected with-
in a month. Applicants who pos-
sess 18S natural serviceable teeth,
with at least two molars in func-
tional occlusion and not more than
four incisors missing, eill be ac-
ceptable. Dental treatment will be
given at the training stations.
Any applicant who has been re-
jected because of any of the de-


Washing dishes, at best, is an unromantic occupation.
The endless scouring and scrubbing, once the common
lot of woman, has been made less arduous, however,
through the general use of electric household ap-
pliances. Native skill and inventive genius have
provided the American woman with a freedom and
leisure .that make her the envy of less fortunate wo-
men the world over. Thus private business and
individual enterprise have planted on these shores a
blessed economy, called "The American Way of Life."
As the chief beneficiary of this superior system, the
A-merican woman is keenly interested in its preserva-
tion. Through garden clubs and countless other
group activities she already makes communities more
inviting and livable, and in the new emergency we
count on her active influence. Prepared, and in
complete co-operation with our customers, the em-
ployees of this company can also be depended upon
to do their patriotic duty, as modern electric services
give you the time to help keep democracy at work

Our Country '" Right or Wrong


WE'RE READY FOR FINISH FIGHT
W AR CAME to the United States on De-
Scember 7, 1941, in typical totalitarian
style. There was no warning. Japan struck
while diplomatic -talks were in progress be-
tween the United States and that country.
Yet the scope of operations showed conclu-
sively that many weeks of planning and at
least two weeks of. actual maneuvers were
.necessary before these final lightning raids.
The United States must never forget these
facts. They prove conclusively that this war
with Japd'a is.but a part of the larger world-
wide war. Japan attacked with the same sav-
age treachery that characterized German
blows against Austria, Czechoslovakia, Nor-
way, Denmark, Poland, Belgium, Holland and
all the rest. It was.in. keeping with Musso-
lini's attack against a beaten France, his ad-
vance into Greece.
This is ancient history. But it is important
that the people of the United States remem-
ber these facts. They show the nature of the
foes we face. They show that no fair play, no
regard for international law, no regard for
civilians will enter into Axis methods. This
war, while it might not be as long as some
anticipate, will be dirty and bloody.
The United States can thank Japan for one
thing. We enter the war with no delusions.
We know exactly what we are in for. We
know that there is nothing "phony" about
this war. We know that it will take all our
manpower and all our resources to win. We
know that the people of the United States
are prepared to pay whatever price is neces-
sary for complete victory.
President Roosevelt spoke for the nation
when he said that no one is to be called upon
for sacrifices. True, the people of this coun-
try are going to pay unprecedented taxes, do
without luxuries.they have come to accept as
necessities, work longer and harder than they
.ever have before, but, as the president has
said, these are privileges. There is no sacri-
fice when the safety of the nation is at
stake. There is no sacrifice in fighting to re-
main free.
There is little use to dwell on the need for
unity. When Japanese planes bombed Hono-
lulu and Pearl Harbor, when they struck at
military bases and air fields in the Philippines,
the people of the- United States became one.
There is no dissension. Party lines were wiped
out in congress. Labor and industry dropped
their differences and redoubled production
efforts. Isolationist leaders and organs rallied
to the fight perhaps because their hides
were endangered, but no matter-past dis-
putes and past differences were forgotten,
and even Lindbergh came down off his
Schicklegruberian horse and said we must all
stand together.
Final victory is taken for granted. But
there is no use fooling ourselves that it will
be easy. Certainly the initial losses in the Pa-
cific have made this clear, and you never can
tell, but we in this section may find ourselves
hiking down into Willis Swamp and asking
Jo Serra where the best place would be for
a hideout, since the paper mill and the gaso-
line pipe line terminal are military objectives


and would be subjected to strafing were the
Axis powers able to get a fleet of bombers
into this section. -
But the opportunity is ours, with the other
free peoples of the world, to prove conclu-
sively that those who fight from choice
merely to preserve their way of life can out-
fight the slaves of dictator nations, which
fight to gain world power. The myth-of to-
talitarian invincibility has. been proved false.
The United States must explode this theory
beyond redemption.
There can be no quarter, no treatment with
the madmen who have plunged the globe into
war. They are false. Their words and actions
convict them of infidelity. They are tricky
and dangerous. They must be destroyed, even
as we destroy mad dogs.
So the time of indecisive waiting is ended.
Our enemies are out in the open. The issues
are clear-cut. Our course is fixed.
The United States has never sought wai.
We can be proud that the United States took
every possible step to avert this one. The at-
tempt ended in early losses. But this is just
the beginning, folks, just the beginning.
The United States has never ldst- a war. It
will not lose this one.


YES, WE HAVE FLAGS!
Our front page, spur-of-the-moment edi-
torial last week on the dearth of flags flying
in Port St. Joe brought gratifying results.
and Saturday (it was raining Friday) re-
vealed:a flag in front of almost every busi-
ness house in the city and many displayed by
private residences.
We feel that such a display of the national
emblem daily during the war period will be
of great assistance in promoting national
unity, and we hope and trust that the people
of Port St. Joe will continue the practice un-
til final victory is ours-no matter how long
the conflict may continue.
Our editorial brought some repercussions,
too, due to our hasty survey of the city ana
environs. Principal W. A. Biggart called us
up early Friday morning to inform us that
the American flag floated daily over the city
schools, and Marc Fleischel Jr., also informed
us, much to our mortification, that the Stars
and Stripes were displayed every (lay from a
mast at the St. Joe Lumber and Export com-
pany's mill.
We offer our apologies for overlooking
any displays of the flag, but feel that our
editorial has been greatly beneficial to the
citizens of our city as a whole. And to Hor-
ace Soule our thanks for egging us on, for
we had planned to use the "What, No Flags?"
theme for our lead editorial this week.


WORTHY YULE CHARITY
Having for its goal the raising of not less
than $110,000, Florida's annual crusade against
tuberculosis, sponosred by the Florida Tu-
berculosis and Health association, is well un-
derway with some 40,000,000 Christmas Seals
already distributed.
The money raised in this campaign will be
used to forward an already highly successful
schedule of work against this insiduous and
deadly disease which kills more persons be-
tween the ages of 15 and 45 than any other
comparable affliction, and citizens of Gulf
county who have not already made their con-
tribution to the cause are urged to do so at
once, as a large part of the money raised is
used right here at home among our people.
Do your share to make complete victory
possible. Spend generously for Christmas
Seals.

Gable and Turner Words of Bible


Acting Together

For First Time

Romance and Sizzling Action In
"Hon'ky-Tonk," Playing Sunday
And Monday at Port Theatre

Thrills, comedy and romantic
adventure are blended absorbingly
in "Honky-To:k," which plays at
the Port theatre Sunday and Mon-
day. Thisis the first picture to
costar Cark Gable and, the fetch-
ing, versatile Lana Turner.
In this new frontier gold camp
yarn, Gable emerges as "Candy"
Johnson, a card sharp'and would-
'be political tycoon who makes the
mistake of falling in love with a
young Boston school teacher who
has an extraordinarily strong will
ol her own. When he makes it
apparent that marriage does not
coincide with his Yukon plan .of
life, she determines to teach him a
lesson by tricking him into a mar-
riag'e on which she immediately
turns her back. From there the
complications pile up thick and
fast. with Miss Turner giving her
strongest dramatic performance to
date.
Few pictures of the year have
been given such a sterling sup-
porting cast as" Honky-Tonk."
CWaire Trevor has an outstanding
'part 'as a girl vying for Gable's
affections. Frank Morgan is seen
as the kindlly mannered but con-
genitally unscruplous father of
Miss Turner. Marjorie Main has
another topnotch part, as has Al-
bert Dekker.


St. Francis Started

Use of Yule Crib
It was St. Francis of Assisi who
-gave the Crib the tangible form in
which we kI-ow it today. In 1223
:he visited Rome and told Pope Hon-
orius III his plans of making a scenic
representation of the place of the
Nativity. The Pope gave his sanc-
tion and on Christmas eve, St. Fran-
cis constructed a crib and grouped
round it the figures of the blessed
Virgin and St. Joseph, the ass and
ox, and the shepherds. He used live
.animals in a real stable.
The custom spread from Italy to
:Spain, Portugal, France, the Nether-
lands and Germany, and from these
countries it has spread to all corners
of the earth.
Museums throughout the world
possess very ancient cribs. The
Metropolitan Museum of Art, New
York, has a group which dates from
before 1478.
The custom of placing cribs out
of doors as Christmas decorations in
the yard has become popular the
past few years.

While :;his "bangle" sale is sep-
arate from the sale of TB Christ-

ders reports that it took Gulf
county but two weeks this year to
exceed, last year's 'iotal of Seals
sold. But two other counties in
the state have established a simi-
lar record-Calhoun and Okaloosa.
The Seal sale will close Christ-
mas Day. and Mr. Saunders, to-
gether with the Pilo:', club, which
is sponsoring the sale, request
that all who have not yet remitted
for their seals do so at once.
The local committee has set
their goal for 1941 to double the
amount of Seals sold, in 1940, and
this can be accomplished if every-
one will co-operate.

Laud Virtues

In Giving'

A little research reveals
that many of the familiar
quotations on the virtues
of "giving" have a sound
bhsis in Holy Scripture.
Though they were not all
made in connection with
"giving" at Christmas time,
the verses below (all taken
from the Bible) provide
definite clues to the origin
of the many more modern
"'give" slogans so often
heard in the holiday sea-
son.
