PORT ST. JOE, GULF .COUNTY., FLORIDA, CHRISTMAS DAY, 1941


St. Joe Sharks

Crowned State

Champs at Ocala

Defeat Dunnellon 27 to 12 Last
Friday In Playoff For Six-Man
Team Laurels

The Port St. Joe Sharks six-man
football squad romped to a 27 to
12 victory over a Dunnellon high
school -team, Central and South
Florida champions, at Ocala last
Friday night to be crowned Florida
state champions for 1941.
iThe first half was a see-saw
affair, with neither team scoring,
but during the third quarter Dun-
nellon crossed Ithe St. Joe goal
line twice but failed to convert
either time; the local lads shoved
over one touchdown and made the
extra two points, leaving the .score
12 to 8 in favor of Dunnellon ait
the end of the third quarter.
The Sharks came out of the dol-
drums in the final quarter, Jimmy'
Taylor carrying the ball over on'
a pass from John Lane and Gor-
don Farris had the honor of mak-
ing extra point on a pass from
Lane. Farris then took another
pass and on a 10-yard run chalked;
up another touchdown. The Sharks!
failed to convert, and the score
stood at 21412.
In the last few minutes of play
Jimmy Taylor took a pass from'
Lane and dashed for the final
touchdown. Extra point was missed
but the Sharks had, the game on
ice, 27 to 12, and Coach Frank
Hannon sent in the second! string
in order that they might reap their
share of glory in Port St. Joe high
school's first state championship.
But one dark cloud marred, the
trip for the Sharks, and that was
when Thomas Chatham received a
broken leg. However, the break
was not as serious as it could have
been, and Tom hopes ito be up and
around shortly.

N a typical rural American community like ours, that immortal Christmas
message-"Peace on Earth, Good Will Toward Men"-finds its truest
meaning and its sincerest applications.
OR it is here that the individual really counts. Nowhere else are people
so willing to lend a helping hand to a fellow man. No cry of distress
remains unanswered, no plea for help ignored. Not only at Christmas
time, but throughout the year, every day activities of our friends
and neighbors are guided by a sense of brotherly love.
VEN our friends and relatives of the large cities realize and admit that
Christmas "back home"-is thefinest Christmas of all. And "back home"
they'll come, every year, every one of them, if they can.
N ordinary times these facts might be considered unimportant. But in a
stricken world that must come to adopt -as its cardinal objective that
same message of Christmas-"Peace on Earth, Good Will Toward
Men"-the significance of the part we must play in shaping the
future of mankind stands out in sharp relief. In so much of the
world the individual counts for little. In communities such as ours
in America every human being retains the rights 'and freedom of
the individual.
F we epitomize the true Christmas spirit, we represent the truest of
democratic ideals. And thus each of us has a sacred, yet simple, duty
to perform. We must reaffirm our will to continue being a peaceful
neighbor and a faithful friend. If we do this and do it in the divine
spirit of Christmas, the world can continue to look to us as the
bulwark of high ideals.
HIS newspaper realizes that as a member of this community we have
our obligation to fulfill. We have tried to be a "good neighbor and
true friend" to all of you. We will continue to be. And we know
that in turn you have the same feeling toward us.
ITH this faith uppermost in our hearts we wish for you an abu dan e
of all the blessings that will bring you-A Merry Christmas.

Plan Military Pageant and Parade
To Take Place of Pirate
Carnival

Co-operating with government
agencies and dedicating the entire
exposition to American defense
programs, the Florida State Fair
will present its 27ith annual agri-
cultural exhibition as usual at
Tampa, February 3 to 14.
By unanimous decision, directors
voted to carry on with the fair as
usual and to link the exhibition
closely with United States defense
operations as outlined by the de-
partment of agriculture, depart-
ment of commerce, maritime com-
mission and war department. An
entire building has been reserved
by these federal agencies for eau-
cational displays Ito acquaint the
public with vital facts pertaining
to the part each plays in defense.

harvest festival this year will be

vasion and parade, one of ithe t
,state's greatest winter -features.
Feeling that the revelries that ac-

would be completely out of place e

that association voted to definitely s
postpone the event until peace is
declared. t

All news items must be ;n by i
n:on next Wednesday.


Must Be Registered:

By Next Wednesday

Necessary Blanks Are Obtainablei
From S. L. Barke; Other Forms
Must Also Be Used

Installment lenders and! sellers
in Port St. Joe are again reminded
that registration statements. must
be filed by next Wednesday, De-
cember 31. Failure to file by that
date will render such firms liable
to heavy penalties imposed for op-
erating without a license, as pre-
scribed under Regulation W, the
new installment control regulati-,.
The licenses are being issued,
without charge, upon receipt of
the registration statement from
the applicants, which statements
may be obtained from S. L. Barke
at the Florida Bank.
Mr. Barke urges that every con-
cern in Port St. Joe engaged in
thel selling of certain consumer
durable goods on the installment
plan, or in making loans to cus-
tomers repayable in installments,
file a registration statement, Form
F.R. 563, immediately, in order to

tual forms, to bei used by business
firms must be printed or otherwise

The installment controls designed
to dampen the demand for durable
goods went into effect on Septem-
ber 1 of this year. Such controls
represent one phase, of the gov-
ernment's effort to prevent run-
away inflation and to lessen con-
sumer consumption of nonessential
goods requiring machinery and
materials vitally needed for mili-
tary production.

principally on registration of com-
mercial vehicles in each area.
Production of new passenger car
tires will be almost entirely elimi-
nat:ed! for the time being, and pro-
duction of new truck tires will be
curtailed. It is estimated that at
the present time stocks of new
tires in the United States, under
demands prevailing recently, would
have lasted about 60 days. Re-
placement tire sales have been av-
eraging about 4,000,000 tires, a
month.
Efficient operation of the ration-
ing system will be ithe sole re-
sponsibility of local boards, and
whether or not a man gets a new
tire will depend upon his own
neighbors.

Provide Originality

To Christmas Table
To the homemaker who is worried
about the expense of Christmas dec-
orations, here are a few new and
inexpensive ways of adding original-
ity to the Christmas table:
'Try red or blue cellophane over a
white table cloth. Cellophane Will
not discolor the
cloth as will some t-em... ......
colored papers. ."" "
Paste various- .:s::i.
sized stars to the
white cloth. Or,
paste cutouts of
Santa, reindeer, n
candles, holly I
sprays, etc.
Use a ribbon of
gold or silver pa-
per down the cen-
ter of the table.
When an uneven number of guests
are. to be seated at the table, you
might confine the evergreen and
floral arrangement to one end of the
table, father at the other, with the
guests seated at the sides.
.Imagine the charm added by sew-
ing a few tiny bells along tie hem
of the cloth so that when the guests
move there is a sound of tinkling.
Down the center you might ar-
range a row of candles of different
heights.
Various strange figures may be
made from fruits, nuts and gum
drops. A large
.:: ...:....:..:. prune stuffed
: with a marshmal-
S ":::.... ::: "low, with a raisin
,.:: for a head and
Almonds for feet,
i' makes a penguin.
...:i .. An attractive
Santa may' be
made from an ap-
ple. Use a big red
apple for the
body, a marsh-
mallow for the head, and cloves
for eyes and nose. Two skewers can
be used for legs, which are covered
with cotton batting. Cotton is also
used for a belt, whiskers, hair and
for covering short pieces of wire in-
serted as arms. A little red cap is
made from pieces of tissue paper
secured to the marshmallow with a
pin. A,third skewer is inserted at
the rear to give Santa a three-point
landing.
Amusing gumdrop trees may be
made from wire or natural twigs.

A Christmas Card What Am!
"Now ain't that sumpin'" the
editor of The Star remarked to
his wife the other day when he
opened a Christmas card from
George Tapper-for it was a De-
fense Stamp album with one ten-
cenit stamp pasted in. If every-
body) had thought to send Christ-
mas greetings of this type, what a
boom there would have been in
Defense Stamp Sales! Well,
it isn't too late yeit-most of us
send, out New Yeair's cards, too.

THAT MUST NOT FAIL/





This Christmas, on trees and shrubs, on the
house itself and on Christmas trees inside the
home in public places all over America
hundreds of millions of tiny, colorful Christmas
lights will symbolize the hope we keep, the faith
we cherish. Like bright stars, close to earth,
they proclaim our heartfelt wish for peace on
earth, good will toward men.


Christmas! That glorious season of seasons which
draws the soul out of bondage in spite of binding
withes, and cutting cords, enabling the spirit to
soar upwards whence the melody has descended!
May that Peace of Spirit which is our divine heri-
tage be yours in full measure this Yuletide season,
with all the material joys that make life abundantly
worth while.

Christmas lighting is an American custom that
now becomes a symbol of the freedom that
shines in the heart of every American. Let this
then be your warrant for making the lighting
on your tree a ceremony to drive home this -truth
that democracy, liberty and light dwell together
-this then is the light that must not fail.

Our Country Right or Wrong

DON'T WAIT DO IT NOW!
The Gulf coutny chapter of the American
Red Cross has been allocated the sum of $750
as its portion of the $50,000,000 being raised
to meet the demands of the war emergency
now on us. That is not too much, and it is
jip to the good people of Gulf county to con-
tribute this amount in the shortest possible
time and keep up the untarnished record of
this county in Red Cross records.
This is not a membership drive-this is for
lour own time of need. If we do not raise it
it -wvll be because we are an ungrateful and
unappreciative people, or the urgency of the
call has not been grasped.
If you have not yet made your contribu-
tion, do it now no matter how small the
sum you have to give. Don't wait for some-
one to come and persuade you, do it volun-
tarily and cheerfully.

When in Rome, do as the Romans do, and

FREEDOM IS AN AMERICAN WORD
What are these freedoms that we Amer!-

Little things, mostly-all the little things
we do and want to keep on doing.
Freedom .is our right to speak our mind.
It's reading what we want to read; going to
church-any church-or not going to church,
as our choice may be It's working for whom
we want, on the terms we want. It's spending
or saving; putting savings into a small busi-
ness and seeing it grow; running that busi-

ADOLF IN A SPOT
Nazi Fuehrer Schicklegruber, alias Adolf
Hitler, who has been directing his army's op.
erations recently along the eastern front, re-
turned to his Berchtesgaden retreat this week
to undergo treatment for a case of nerves.
It seems that the spectacle of his German.
"supermen" racing at top speed over snowy
Russian wastes toward Berlin, with Red
armies in hot pursuit, has unstrung sensitive
Aodlf quite a bit.
Fact of the matter is, this inconsiderate
Russian treatment actually has placed Adolt
on the spot. For it was only a month ago
that he was telling the folks back home that
the. eastern campaign was all over but the
shouting. There's shouting, all right, on the
eastern front these days, but it comes from
the united voice of the Russian people sound-
ing their new slogan: "On to Berlin."
It's altogether likely that the Germans will
want to know what this long distance sprint-
ing away from Moscow is all about. The Fal-
tering Fuehrer usually knows all the answers.
Nevertheless, the one he must think up in

Berchtesgaden this time had better be good.
-The Miami Post.

An old maid keeps quiet when folks get to
talking about what happened during the last
World War.

Not a very bright prospect for a Happy
New Year for the world this year.

"Blessed be the peacemakers"-how in-
effective they seem to be these days.
