TO THE VOTERS
OF PORT ST. JOE
We all know this is no time for
a big political campaign. Due to
the war, politics are not uppermost
in our minds, but we must remem-
ber that our City Government
must continue to function smoothly
even during the stress of war.
Due to my hours of work, I have
been unable to contact you person-
ally, so I hope you will give this
notice your attention.
I have announced my candidacy
for City Commissioner in the com-
ing election. I feel we need new
blood in office (no offense meant.
Commissioners!) There is right
smart that should be done in our
tCity, and we should be doing
something about it.
I will appreciate your vote and
support on Tuesday, February 17
(don't forget the date) and will,
if elected, faithfully discharge my
duties to the best of my ability,
so mark one for ole' Buster.

"Shadow of the Thin Man"
starts' with an apparent murder at
a race track. A variety of sus-
picious characters are involved, in-
cluding two rival newspaper men,
the head of the state athletic com-

blonde girl friend. The mystery
gets into a seemingly insoluble
muddle until a young reporter

his own distinctive methods to
bring the real murderer to light.

HIGH, BLOOD PRESSURE
Dangerous High Blood. Pressure (Es-
sential Hypertension) is usually marked
by distressing symptoms such as dizzi-
ness, throbbing headaches, sleepless-
ness and.nervousness. If disregarded,
this may lead to Heart Trouble, Stroke,
Paralysis, Hardening of the Arteries or
Kidney Trouble. Diamonex, new dis-
covery of a heart specialist, is designed
to quickly .aid in the relief of these
A Chicago resident says: "I suffered
from High Blood Pressure for several
years with increasingly severe throb-
bing headaches, dizziness and shortness
of breath. I showed the Diamonex for-
mula to my doctor and, on his advice;
tried the treatment for two weeks un-
der identical conditions as previous
treatments. Within only three days my
bad headaches and dizzy spells were
gone. My high blood pressure was re-
duced and I sleep fine."
Diamonex goes directly to work in
three different ways to aid in the relief
of these dangerous symptoms. Results
are speedy-within as short a time as
two weeks sufferers often find that
Diamonex has accomplished 75%
of the total reduction possible with

Blood Pressure you may try DIA-

Every man, woman and child in the United
States is a soldier on the home front. Let
us dedicate ourselves to unflinching service.
M-ay we suggest as a Home Front Pledge to
be taken silently by every citizen and resi-

:That we shall do our part, willingly and
earnestly, as fighters on the home front, if
not on the battle line.
That we shall learn the trades of war and.
defense necessary to carry out any duty that
may be assigned to us.
That we shall be frugal in consuming the
stores that must provide also for our armed
services and for our allies.
'That we shall save and make available for
use again the materials that can be salvaged
from our home and business transactions.
That we shall deny ourselves without
grumbling the luxuries and conveniences that

THIS NEW WARTIME
Due to the fact that Port St. Joe is a
sort of stepchild as far as the time divisions
are concerned-*the city really being in the
central zone but using eastern standard time
due to the railroad-when the changeover to
the new "wartime" was instigated, nobody
seemed to know what to do about it, some
-advocating staying on the time we had been
using and others favoring the new time.
Came the cold, gray dawn of Monday,
February 9, and almost everybody was using
the old. time. The railroad, telephone com-
'pany, bus depot and paper mill had changed
to the new time, but few knew about it, and
we understand that a large number of em-
ployes at the paper mill were an hour late
H-owever, decision to change to the new
time was made by someone-we don't know
who, but a lot of people are cussin' whoever
it was-and at 11 o'clock (old time) the noon
siren atop the bank building wailed out the
fact that it was time for lunch-and so the
matter seemed to have been settled.
Now those who have to get to work early
arise before dawn,, yawning, stretching and
shivering, to grope about in the dark for the
light and their bedroom slippers. It isn't ex-
actly pleasant, we'll admit, but, on the other
hand, the arrangement pays, off in the after-
noon by making business closing hours on;
hour earlier than normal, thus giving em-
ployes an additional hour of daylight for re-
laxation, and with summer coming on that
extra hour will mean a lot. And, too, with
this extra hour, we should see a lot of home
defense gardens springing up which might not
have been possible under the old time.
It may seem a bit trying right now, but
we'll get used to it.
SCHOOL BOYS CAN SERVE IN WAR
We don't mean, by that heading, that 'teen
age school boys will be enlisted in the armed
forces like they are in Germany, Japan and
Italy, but they are being offered a place in
the nation's war effort by Secretary of the
Navy Frank Knox in the construction of 500,-
000 aircraft models for our armed forces.
The Star this week received a bulletin
from the Office of Public Relations stating
that high school students in Florida will be
given an opportunity to participate in this
program by building 5500 of these models.
There will be 10,000 models each of 50 dit-
ferent types of fighting planes which will be
used for training personnel in aircraft recog-
nition, range estimation in gunenry practice
and civilian defense training. The first set
of working drawings will be in the hands ot
co-operating schools by February 23. Whether
or not the Port St. Joe high school partici-
pates in the program will remain up to the
students and Principal Biggart-but if we
know our boys, there'll. be doggone few of
'em pass up the opportunity to build model
airplanes, and on top of that they'll be doing
their bit to help their country in this war.
The models will be made pn a precise scale
of 1 to 72-ont inch on the model represent-a
ing six feet on the actual plane. After a re-
view of models submitted, students complet-
ing stated quantities of models will receive
certificates in recognition of the importance
of the work. Approved models will be sent
to aviation units ashore and afloat.
All right, boys, let's see how many of those
certificates we can bring to Port St. Joe!
We're aginn" the bill passed providing pen-
sions for members of congress the same as
provided for other long-time government em-
ployes. Members of the U. S. senate and
house of representatives asked to be elected
to office and spent good money in their cam-
paigns to be elected. No one asked them to
take the jobs-they weren't hired or ap-
pointed-they wanted to be elected mainly
for the honor and prestige, or they had an
ax to grind, either for themselves or for
some individual or corporation. Therefore
they should be satisfied, after having served
their tenure of office, to retire gracefully
and not ask the people to "keep" them in
their old age.
These afternoon pink tea bridge parties
the women hold are at last doing some good.
Instead of giving useless gimcracks and gee-
gaws as score prizes they are now giving de-
fense stamps. The plan cuts out a few sales
for the dime stores, but it aids in our na-
tional defense program.
Hope never fades-it merely shifts from
day to day. .

"What do you mean-to live off
our fat?" I asked her.
"Jus.t like a bear does when he
hibernates for the winter, without

he eats all he wants and puts on
a lot of extra flesh. Then, when
fall comes, he dens up in his cave

tilda. For years here in the' United
States, we've bought freely every-
thing that we wanted and could

stop buying all but necessities."
"And begin to use up the old
things," the practical old lady sug-
gested. "Don't be afraid, to have
darns in the heels and, toes of

town, to learn the kind of thrift.

With a rich new continent and
the most efficient industrial sys-
tem in the world, we've been an
extravagant people the past few
decades. When things were a little
worn, we discarded them and got
something new. When it was a
nuisance to save things, we simply
threw them away. But now, the
industry which has provided for
us so lavishly is at work on the
machines of war. Now, its main
objective is not to raise our .stan-
dard of living, but to win this war
as soon as possible. So it's up to
us to co-operate by saving .
conserving making over .,
even doing without sometimes.
We can do this with good grace
here in America, because we know
that when Victory comes, industry
will go right to work for us again.
At this moment, I think we, all
agree that nothing matters but
the war. When other things DO
matter, we will again be able tb
buy all that we need of every
good thing. Like the bear in the
