CPL. WM. C. ROBERTS
"The army can make a good
housewife out of a man," was the
information given by Cpl. William
C. Roberts from the island of Sal-
pan in a letter to his mother, Mrs.
W. A. Roberts of Beacon Hill.
The description of KP given by
the, corporal included "garbage
cans, pots and pans, huge kettles
of food, sweaty steam, scalding
,coffee, potato peeling, cutting meat
by the hour, chow line, table clean-
ing and, lots of other things."
Among other household chores
'described' by Roberts, the washing
of clothes was compared with the
nursery rhyme, "Rub-a-dub-dnb,
three men in a-.ub-onuy we use
'buckets," he saia. "Hot water Is
something we never see except ia
the chow line; imagine shaving in
cold water, but we must shave. Of
course, it is always crowded, so
you just go right ahead, and
find yourself getting washmaid's
knuckle from scrubbing."
Even technique in sewing Is
learned in the armed services, he
said, referring to an eitra pair of
fatigues which he revised into a
pair of shorts and a jacket.
Roberts, a member of a service
group of a bombing squadron, has
been in the service over a year
and overseas over three months.
REUNION IN ITALY DUE
TO ARTICLE IN THE STAR
Italy, Oct. 16, 1944.
Dear Editor Bill-Through your
column each week in The Star two
more St. Joe boys have met over-
seas. I knew that "Casey" Jones
was near me here, for I saw his
name in the register down town
in the Red Cross service club. His
mother. sent him the writeup you
had in the paper about me-, and he
immediately located me with the
help of the Red. Cross field direu-
tor. So Saturday he, comes into my
house here, and we are the two
happiest guys in Italy. ,
We talked' all day Sunday and
for two nights, about everything
batk home and about people we
know back there. We two were
kids together up in Blountstown,
along with Gordon Farris: and
Pidgeon Traweek, so we've, hau
lots to talk about. We both have
heard lumber and' sawmills all our
lives, so we practically had one
running here in our house.
It certainly is good to see a fel-
low from home 'way over here,
and I was almost as glad to' see
him as if it liad, been either, one
of my brothers who are now in
So this is to let you know, Ed-
itor Bill, that we enjoy your col-

St. Joe Play 0-0 Tie
Won From Chattahoochee Week
Previous By 30 to 18;' Play
At Apalachicola Tpnight
Last Friday the St. Joe Sharks,
in their second 11-man game of
the season, played a scorelss tie
tilt with the Blonntstown Tigers
in *that city. The previous Friday
the six-man team defeated Chat-
tahoochee 30 to 18.
The Sharks started off by tak-
ing the ball to the, Tigers' one-
yard line, but the Blountstown
lads lightened, their defense and
St. Joe lost the ball on downs.
The entire first half was played in
Bloun.tstown territory, but the
Sharks could not produce a scor-
ing punch, despite the, fact that
they outplayed their opponents
to modern conveniences, at least and did not allow them to get
it provided' ,accommodations for
those who would tarry in our city
for a time.
During the past few years the
Inn has) done a thriving business,
practically all rooms being taken
the greater part of the time, anid
the revenue derived by the busi-
ness houses is already being felt
if the comments of some mer-
chants, is any criterion. ,
'Mayor J. L. Sharit stated yes-
terday that something should' be
done as soon as possible to remedy
the situation, as all available ac-
commodatiions in the few rooming
houses are already taken and' a
number' "of pi'ivate liome owners
have taken in roomers until some-
thing can be done about construct-
ing a new hotel. Meanwhile, a
large number of people, employed
here, have been forced to secure
accommodations in Apalachicola,
Wewahitchka and Panama City,
within 30 yards- of their goal.
The. game with Apalachicola,
originally scheduled to be played
here tonight, has! been transferred
to Apalachicola diue to. the' fact
that some changes must be made
in the lighting at the field before
11-man ball can be played on it.
It is expected the Sharks will
meet Apalachicola here next Fri-
' On Friday night, November 17,
the Sharks. will meet Blountstown
under the lights at Centennial
Field in the second and) last 11-
man game to be played here dur-
ing the current season.

EFFECTIVE WITH DECEMBER FIRST BILLS
The annual savings to our customers is in excess
of $325,000. FIRST of three reductions WHICH
WILL BRING OTHER S A V I N G S TO YOU.
The new rates, which will benefit the
company's residential and commercial
service customers, are designed to bring
about substantial reductions in cost, as
well as simplification in the schedules
for modern electric service.
The new residential service schedule,
which will be available throughout the
territory served by the company, fol-
lows. For rates on commercial service
see column at right of advertisement..
RATE PER MONTH
$1.00 for the first 12 KWH or les.s
BeS per KWH for the next 48 KWH
4c per KWH for the next 40 KWH
21/2c per KWH for next 100 KWH
1/2c per KWH for over 200 KWH
The More You Use
The Cheaper it Gets
Operating efficiences due to generating
plant improvements, combined with sayv-
inSs effected by our refinancing pro-
gram, make possible this rate reduction
which means an annual saving to our
customerss of more than THREE HUN-
DRED AND TWENTY-FIVE THOUSAND
DOLLARS based on our present volume
Two other rate reductions are planned
For the days after Victory, barring run-
away inflation or other conditions be-
fond our control. It is our desire to
continue to reduce rates for electric
service whenever possible, consistent
with sound business practice.
During the past 10 years this company
has passed on rate reductions with an
accrued saving to our customers of more
than THREE MILLION DOLLARS. The
recent war years have prevented us from
carrying on our normal rate reduction
arogrom before the present time.
This rate reduction, and the others
planned, is ample proof of our faith in
the future growth and development of
this territory. Speaking for all employes,
we shall always try to earn the confi-
dence of every customer.
Where the customer's service conditions
meet the specifications of the new rates,
commercial light and commercial power
service will be billed under the lower
of the following rates: ..
$15.00 for the first 10 KWH or less
$1.00 per KW for over 10 KWH
3c per KWH for first 1,000 KWH
2c per KWH for next 9,000 KWH
11/2c per KWH for next 40,000 KWH
lec per KWH for over 50,000 KWH
$1.00 for the first 12 KWH or less
6c per KWH for the next 138 KWH
41/2c per KWH for next 350 KWH
4c per KWH for excess over 500
When commercial customers have two
or more services for various classes of
use, such as separate services for light
and power, the service must be com-
bined to meet the rate requirement. In
some instances where changes cannot
be made in customer's wiring, or where
present rate billings are lower than
those under the new schedule. the ex-
'istihg contracts will continue so that no
customer will be adversely affected by
the new rate.

Our Country Right or Wrong
BEHIND THE SPEECHES
After listening to a few of the "debates"
between Roosevelt and Dewey and other ma-
jor party leaders in the pre-election campaign,
our natural reaction is awe. How does it hap-
pen that we are winning the war if the
charges of political incompetence on both
sides are anywhere near true?
As a matter of fact, we would not be win-
ning the war if our fate had been left to- the
foresight and initiative of any political party.
We were preparing for the war in ways the
politicians never dreamed of, long' before
Pearl Harbor. The array of armament and
supplies that American factories' were able to
turn out after our peril was generally recog-
nized was not due to any previous political
planning by either party.
The real reason why this country is Win-
ning the war is that behind the speeches is
the cold fact that the people were ready for
war because of the alertness of their indus-
SECtURITY FROM SECURITY
A caustic columnist, H. I. Phillips, recently
said-: "The security situation has reached a
point where people are beginning to demand
security from security." This is good solid
satire and just what we need.
There are all sorts of security to conjure
with, and public leaders today are certainly
conjuring overtime. The way that word "se-
curity" is juggled about and the magic it is
supposed to obtain and contain and maintain
It is a rarity for anyone to write or think
about security trenchantly, because it has be-
come most proper and popular to exalt "per-
nicious -sentimentality." That telling phrase
was used in the title of an editorial nearly a
hundred years ago-an editorial about Har-
riet Beecher Stowe, by the way. It will never
do for us to permit "pernicious sentimental-
ity" to rule and govern the U. S. A. Those
words may well describe any number of col-
umns on a myriad of subjects of the nation's
Congressional Record. If it be treason to
say so, it is a higher treason to be silent.
A breeze as refreshing as has been felt on
the planet in many a year is that which flows
from the oratory of the few who dare to say
that planned, rigid security is no thing to Use
as a basic economic or international scheme;
that we, all of the two billion of us, are too
young now, too immature, as well as too
healthy, to be thinking all the time about se-
, curity for this, that and the other. We seem,
so far as this mortal world is concerned, to
be young and vigorous and enthusiastic. Are
we enthusiastic merely about promises re-
garding retiring in senile security? A drive
forward, rightly resulting in security, is one
thing; a stupor brought on by promises of
security is quite another thing. Democracy is
one thing; communism is another. Energy is
one thing; apathy is another.
The seeking, striving, struggling, straining,
crying-out for perfection have meant growth
and advancement, not only materially but
spiritually. To limit ourselves to a material-
security line of thought might temporarily
obstruct our spiritual advancement. A planned
security, laid down in black and white on the
assumption that a perfect mortal arrange-
ment had been achieved and (heaven forbid)
supported by statute and sword cannot bene-
fit any people except robots. A planned se-
curity of economic life and of international
relations that can be forced upon any group
of people will never benefit either the forces
or the forces.

TO THE EDITOR
Jl111 I llllllllll llllIIIIIll li l IIII IIIIIllll llill nlilllll ll
Dear Editor Bill:.
I read Ben Rivers' letter in the
October 20 issue of The Star, and,
while I might agree with Ben on
some of the things he mentioned,
I have to disagree on others.
It isnt fair at all to our St. Joe
servicemen to be led to believe that
we don't know a war is going on.
This wornout phrase is uncalled
for, as Port St. Joe is, just as war
conscious as. any community in the
U. S. A. Ben says except for "a
few who realize a war is being
fought, etc." It should be termed
"a few who do not realize a war
is being fought."
Port St. Joe has done much
more proportionately, in the. war
program, than most cities her
size. I know that we. are slow in
getting started, and, have to have
pins stuck in our sterns some-
times before moving, but we
usually get what we go after. Wq
have made exceptionally fine rec-
ords in all the war bond drives.
We have exceeded our quotas
many, many times. -We have al-
ways gone, over the top in our Red
Cross .drives. Last year' we raised,
more than twice our seemingly
large quota for the year before.
This War Fund drive will be
met. The people of Port St. JoB
won't let this, down. Right now,
Chairman McKnight has $800 hr
this fund,. which leaves a balance
of $1.500 to be raised by Novem-
ber 11. 'I am sure that Port St. Joe
will come across.
I believe ttat Ben will agrer
that these various fine records
could not have 'been made unless
MOST OF THE PEOPLE of Port
St.. Joe had participated in these
What will they say of our city
next? We've been termed a mod-
em Sodom, and .a war-unconscious
(except' for a few) city. Person-
ally, I say that Port St. Joe is just
an average American city, like.

Green and points in Georgia.

Use the Friendly Services of
Florida National Group Banks
From Key West to Pensacola
virtually every major center of
commerce, industry, agriculture
and recreation in Florida is served
by one of the 15 member banks
of the Florida National Group.
The total number of customers
of these banks is 141,405. This is'
a large segment of Florida's popu-
lation and of its various types of
business enterprises. Remember
this, because the services we give
these customers daily have en-
during effect on Florida's growth
A bank in, itself is nothing but
a repository for money. It's the
men who operate the bank and
the customers who patronize it
who make a bank an important
implement for community pro-
gress ... or who can keep it from
being little more than a con-
venient place to keep money
safe and idle.
All banks of the Florida
National Group are devoted to
the constructive policy of helping
in the development of their com-
' munities, their state and the
Southeast by making loans that
will create new enterprises or help
in the expansion of established
enterprises. These banks are not
interested in keeping dollars idle
because there is no progress when
money does not work.
This policy outlines our con-'
ception of our duty to our 141,405
customers and to the area we serve.
We provide the most modern
facilities and friendly service, yes!
-but we look beyond this to our
customers' opportunities to con-
tribute to the growth of the whole
community and to the ways in
which we can give them maxi-
mum assistance through loans
and services to further their own
and' their state's advancement.
This we believe to be our duty.
This is the policy we follow, well-
knowing that as our customers
prosper and as Florida grows, we
will grow and prosper, too.
