MISSED HIS STAR
April 7, 1945
Dear Editor Bill-Just a few
lines to let you know my address
now, so that I can get The Star,
and believe me, I sure am looking
forward to receiving some. It. has
been some time since I have seeh
a copy. I have made two voyages
over and back since I got a Star.
The only news I have received
from St. Joe has been extremely
ead and heartbreaking. May those
who sacrifice themselves for t'e
peace that is coming to our great
nation find'the leaves of grass be
greener and God ,bless them whe;-
ever they went.- -
The two trips I spoke of were to
Greece and Italy. It's not so baOf
in there as it was in '43 when 1
was there last.

Opinion Differs As To Actual

During 100 Years
By R. W. PATRICK
Member of Governing Board, P. K. Yonge
Library of Florida History, Univ. of Florida
Is Governor Millard F. CaldweQl
the 29th governor of Florid.a?
Accounts of his inauguration on
January 2, 1945, listed Governor
Caldwell as. the state's 29th gov;-
ernor, but historians and public
officials are not in agreement as
to the actual number of governors
who have served the people of
Florida in the state's 100 years of
,Caldwell is the 25th man who
has been elected governor of Flor-
ida and the 29th man who has ex-
ercised the executive power since
the state was admitted to the
Union in 1845. This is established
historical knowledge, but. Gover-
nor Caldwell may be classified as
the 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th, 29th or
30th governor, according to the de-
termination of several questions.
He is the 25th governor if only
the men who were actually elected
to the governorship are included.
William D. Bloxham, however,
was elected to the governorship
twice and served from 1881 to 1885
and again from 1897 to 1901. Ac-'

one, president, but a man who
serves two non-consecutive pe-
riods, as Grover Cleveland did, is
counted as two official presidents.
On the basis of this precedent
Bloxham would be, listed as two
governors of the state.
The National Cyclopedia of Am-
erican Biography follows such a
policy and counts Bloxham as thu
12th and 16th governors of Flor-
ida. Governor Caldwell becomes
the 26th governor when Bloxhain
is counted twice.
Four other men who were never
elected but did exercise executive
power complicate the problem.

Our Country Right or Wrong
GIVE THE BOYS A BREAK
It 'has been brought to our attention that
those organizations which have been sponsor-
ing the Saturday night dances at the Centen-
nial Auditorium for the servicemen from
Camp Gordon Johnston have, withdrawn their
sponsorship (with exception of the American
Legion) on the grounds that a lot of the boys
now get three-day passes and stay in Port
St. Joe 6ver the week-end.
So what? The members of these various
,civic groups were all highly enthused when
.these dances were first started and many
,provided overnight accommodations for those
.boys who wanted to stay over until Sunday.
In fact, a list of homes with a spare bed or
two was compiled and provided the hostess in
charge of the dances, who saw that as many
.hloys as possible were provided overnight ac-
commodations. It looks as though the novelty
has worn off and since it has become a rou-
tine job everyone has lost interest.
Remember, we have a lot of boys from-Port
St. Joe scattered all over the nation and the
world and from extracts from letters of some
of our own- boys tob their folks' here at home
most of them are being, from time to time,

Statistics compiled by the American Cancer
Society reveal that cancer today ranks sec-
ond in cause of deaths among the fatal dis-
eases. Grimmer still are the facts that one
out of every six human beings alive*'and'well
today is doomed to an agonizing death from
cancer, 'while one out of every three women
between the ages of 35 and 60 is earmarked
by the grim reaper as a cancer victim.
The pitiful thing is that these deaths are
needless.. Science and research have already
proven that when caught in time cancer can
be licked. Ignorance and apathy on the part
of the general public alone is responsible for
the terrible death toll from this fatal malaay.
To offset this, the'American Cancer Society
during the month of April, which has been
'officially proclaimed "Cancer Control Month"
by proclamation of the president and' author-
ity of congress, is 'conducting a nationwide
campaign to raise $5,QQG,000 for research, ed-
u'cation and care in thf fight against this great
It is imperative that every man, woman
and child volunteer in ti-his fight. You can hejp
as a volunteer in the field army and as a con- I
tributor to the fund.
The Florida division of the field army of
the American Cancer Society urges your co-
operation and support in this worthwhile et-
fort. The invisible reaper is no respecter ot
persons YOU could be the unfortunate
LET'S CLEAN HOUSE BOTH WAYS!
- As is the annual custom during the spring
housewives of Port St. Joe are doing their
house cleaning, much to the discomfort of the
male members of the family. During April
they can clean house two ways at once-when
they clear out the old clothes they can allevi-
ate the desperate disorder left in the wake of
the Axis scourge.
For every man, woman and child in .Port
St. Joe there is a double, a human shadow of
yourself in ravaged Europe or Asia. But
whereas we have thus far enjoyed the comfort
and safety of distance from 'the world's battle-
fields, your double, wrecked by the receding
tide of war, is now among the "statistically
naked." Think of it. For each one of us,
working, shopping, tending our chores, there
is another human being "statistically naked."
It is a phrase to remember. It means that your
double shares a shirt with six other people,
takes turns wearing a pair of shoes.
The need is multiplied by millions. All over
the world, wherever the blighting hand of
the Axis has touched the human race, there
is a scar-quivering, naked.
During April the United National Clothing
Collection for War Relief wants your help in
gathering 150,000,000 pounds of practical
clothing-the nation's hand and yours, reach-
ing out to aid a stumbliing world in a step
toward a newer, firmer hope.
Think as you collect, -as you houseclean.
Warm, sturdy garments. Shoes tied in pairs;
plain shoes. Knitted hoods and stocking caps.
Any sort of clean bedding. Clothes and more
clothes; any kind, every size, but practical.
Make up your bundle and take it down to
the collection center at the Florida Power
Corporation office. And remember, when you
tie up your bundle you're not only houseclean-
ing your home-you're housecleaning Hitler
MORE PULPWOOD-LESS BLOODSHED
Suppose we could move battle schedules
ahead all over the world by just one day.
Suppose Hitler and his fellow-murderers
could be made to surrender 24 hours earlier.
And suppose our soldiers, sailors and ma-
rines could march up the streetss of Tokyo
just one day ahead of schedule.
Think of what it would mean in the hearts
of America! Think of the i;ninumbered thou-
sands of American boys who would riot have
to die on that last day of: the war.
Perhaps we can save that extra day:
Battle schedules depend' on supplies. Vic-
tory depends on supply. And supply depends
to a gieat degree on pulpwood. Pulpwood-
and a great deal of it made right here in Port
St.. Joe-makes, wraps or packs more than
700,000 war items.
An extra cord of pulpwood means more am-
Inunition, more parachutes, more shell con-
tainers, more boxes of plasma-and the means
of getting them to the front lines where they
count. An extra cord of wood cut in Gulf
county today may save a life.
Every failure of those of us on the home
front to do the things that will bring Victory
one day earlier will be spelled out in blood on
some tinnecessary battlefield on a needless
extra day and chances are some of that
blood will be that of boys from our own com-
