Fund Drive Far
From Quota Set
Chairman McKnight Urges Every-
one to Dig Down and Make
Dear Editor Bill-I noticed in
last week's Star where you saiu
that the chairman of the Gult
County War Fund Drive was as
quiet as a clam about the progress
of the drive so far. In reply to
that statement I am happy to sub-
mit the following report of re-
From dance of Oct. 6.... $254.84
Port theater benefit show.. 54.80
From local merchants...... 277.00
Individual contributions ... 83.00
Pledged .................. $20.00
While your chairman is just
itchin' to publish a list of donors
to this most worthy cause, I feel
sure that it is hardly the right
thing to do at this time. Some of
the donors do not like to have
their names published in connec-
tion with campaigns, and we. do
want to save any embarrassment
that might arise."
However, I think that it is in
order to list the members of the
$25 club among the merchants.
They are: A & P Food Store, Cos-
tin's. Department Store and Mil-
ler's Drug Store. I think it en-
tirely.. inp order --4Ze, .to mention
that the Port Theater is a char-
ter member of the, $50 club an-c
the Gulf Hardware Company or
the $20 club. Among individuals
the following are members of the
$5 club: Dr. J. R. Norton, H. Y.
Brown, Mrs. Eliza E. Lawson, H.
B. Lewis and M. P. Tomlinson. B.
R. Gibson is charter member oZ
the $4 club.
'We just couldn't pass up th~s
opportunity to list these anyway.
To all those others who :tre cot-
tributing generously we say 'thanfa
you sincerely. Wei know that you
recognize its merits'.
To those who' are still conten'-
plating a gift, you still have 'til

as possible. We still have a ba.-

Timber Off San
Finest In South
Military Reservation Timber
Harvested By St. Joe Lum-
ber & Export Company
One million feet of mature slasa
pine logs has been removed front
the San Blas Military Reservation
during the past six weeks. -Thirtyl
of Tom Byrd's loggers have felled
the big trees, snaked the stems
full length to the loaders and
kept five or six trucks operating
"teadily over the 10 miles of road
-rom San Blas lighthouse to the
big mill of the St. Joe Lumber &
Export Company here in Port St.
Originally it was the intent of
Basil E. Kenney to hold all of the
timber until January of 1945 when
the flatwoods becomes too wet for
regular logging. Then he woul'a
move his. loggers to the sandy
dunes of San Blas. Excessive rains
in this section during July and Au-
gust necessitated some immediate
cutting on San Blas in order to
maintain operations at the mill.
The timber was- purchased ou
open bidi from the war department
on August 22 by the St. Joe Lum-
ber & Export Company at someu-
thing above the, set miniijim price
of $12.50 per thousand board feet
log scale. The sale marked a dis-
tinct change on the part of the
war department in handing of
their timber resources. Although
there were no laws prohibiting
sale of timber on military reser-
vations, army regulations made'
such sales impossible. As the re-
sult of protracted discussion among
various liranches of the service,
and finally through the efforts o?
the chief of engineers, the regiea-
tions were modiffied to allow for
the normal harvesting of timber
crops on military reservations.
Pie disposal of such timber from
San Bias is the-first of such sales.
San Bias Military Reservation
was carved out of public domain
back on March 23, 1849.. Those
were the days when the "Tide o?
Empire" moved not only west, but
south. This country had just com-
pleted a successful war with Mex-
ico. The American people were In
the midst of the controversial sub-
ject of slavery. One means of

rejoicing, but most of all a day of re-dedica-
tion to the stern tasks ahead.
This day is set apart each year so that a
grateful nation may have an opportunity to
pay tribute to its victorious fleet, honor the
devotion and heroism of its men, and recog-
nize anew the vital part which the navy must
continue to play in order to win a complete
victory and guarantee freedom in the peace
The powerful slogan for this 1944 Navy
Day "Your Fleet Guarantees Freedom -
strikes a most realistic note as we read the
dramatic successes of the navy as it edges
its way closer and closer toward the home-
land of Japan, driving to the bottom of the
sea enemy ships and enemy planes which im-
pede its progress.
The national observance of Navy Day was
inaugurated on October 27, 1922, under the
auspices of the Navy League of the United
States in order that the American people
might become more familiar with the navy
and gain a greater appreciation of its import-
ance and influence in our national life.
As the pioneer civilian organization de-
voted to national defense, the Navy League
was founded in 1902. It is non-partisan, norn-
commercial and non-political and its efforts
through the past 42 years to interpret the
navy to the American people have made it
virtually a civilian arm of the service.
October 27 was chosen as the date for the
observance .of Navy Day because it marks the
anniversary of the date in 1775 when the Con-
tinental Congress received the bill providing
for the creation of an independent fleet. it
is also the birthday of Theodore Roosevelt,
who was a determined advocate of a strong

YOUR VOTE DOES COUNT
Your vote does count in any election. It
is one vote more or one vote less for 'the
winning candidate. That much is certain.
If it is one vote more for the winning can-
didate it does that much to place a stamp ot
approval on the candidate. Because of your
vote he is encouraged to carry out in office
what he said he would do during the cam-
paign. Because of your vote the philosophy
of government championed by the candidate
or displayed by him in office is approved and
is given additional strength.
If it is one vote less for the winning can-
didate, even though winning, he may be in-
duced to study again what he plans to do or
what he has been doing. That vote in opposi-
tion will incline the candidate to reason why
it is cast in opposition to him. If it is one
vote less for the winning candidate it is at
the same time one vote more for the losing
candidate. If the losing candidate has right
on his side, or is more nearly right than the
winning candidate, he will be encouraged to
continue his fight that right shall prevail.
Right does not always triumph by one elec-
tion, neither does wrong lose out by one elec-
tion. But in any election a vote cast for the
right and against the wrong, by that much
hastens the triumph of right or the defeat

BEWARE OF RAINBOW CHASERS
From the many papers that come to oui
editorial desk we note that cities and towns
are striving to. attract new industries of a
permanent nature to fill the gap when the
inevitable day of curtailed war production ar-
rives in deadly earnest. Panama City, our
nextdoor neighbor, is one, for example.
It seems to us that the objective of the
average community with war industries ita
to hold fast to wartime peaks. Many are go-
ing to be disappointed, if they pin their hopes
too strongly on the dreams of rainbow
chasers to the exclusion of cold facts. We of
Port St. Joe should be duly thankful that we
did not secure any wartime industries, for af-
ter the let-down we will continue on our way
just as we always have.
It would seem that now is the time for all
communities to look with new appreciation
upon the old-established industries that help-
ed them prosper in peacetime. After the il-
lusions of the rainbow chasers evaporate,
those industries will be with them, paying
taxes and working to build payrolls and etn-

and from Eglin Field marked the

Who was responsible for the es-

answered, but today, a hundred
years later, the armed, forces of
this country are indebted to him
for his foresight. Today San Blas
is supplying them with some or
the finest pine timber produced in
the South. The. next crop perhaps
will be used for more peaceful
purposes in a better world.
A 320-acre tract near Wewa-

Of the bank loans made in
Florida during the last 12
months, by far the greatest
number made by any single fi-
nancial organization have been
made by banks of the Florida
National Group, situated in
15 strategic centers of Florida's
agriculture, commerce, indus-
try and recreation.
In total dollar volume, these
29,673,loans amount to $153,-
223,651. This is a vast sum of
money, and it has vast import-
ance to Florida because it turns
into potent energy that creates
new businesses, expands old
business, makes farmland fruit-
ful and sets the wheels of indus-
try humming faster and faster.
If you think of these loans in
terms of money alone, they be-
come merely a cold, remote and
only slightly interesting sta-
tistic. But if you view them
in terms of human values, in
terms of pay-envelope dollars,
of growth and of development,
they challenge the imagination.
Whether you, as an indivi-
dual, are not even distantly
associated with any of the 29,-

loans were made, this money
is, nevertheless, working -for
you because it is helping to
