Florida Power

Again Reduces

Domestic Rate

-New Schedule Applies To All Do-
mestic Services Except
Water Heating

Eft ctive with February billing.
Florida Power Corporation rates
for domestic service will be re-
duced again, according to an an-
nouncement 'by R. G. Porter, man-
ager of the utility in Port St. Joe.
Total amount 'of the reduction
will be $360,000, according to Por-
ter, who said, that every home.
maker in. this territory who uses
a minimum of at least 14 kilowatt
hours would be affected.
Despite rising costs of labor and
materials, the company is putting
these new rates in effect now,
beating a promise made a year
a.go when they said there would ne
a reduction within 18 months. "We
are happy to beat that promise by
five, months," said Porter.
The nrfew grate, which applies to
all domestic serVic0 s except water
hea'tizg, is: $1 t of t1he first 14
kilowatt-hours or less; 5c pe.r KWH
for the next 36 kilowatt-hours;
3c for the next 150 k41lowat't-hours,
and 1%2c peq- KWH far the excess
over 200 kilowatt-hours.
Porter pointed out that the
greatest saving was in the 100
KWH 1 bracket, which is the'e ap-
proximate monthly average used
for all customers of the company.
At, the old rate 100 KWH cost
$5.48, but at the rate -which goes
into effect with 'the bills mailed
next 'month,.100 KWH will cost
$4.90. "This is a saving of 20 per
cent, or $1.18," said Porter, who
also pointed out that Florida
Power rates are now among the
lowest in, the. state.


Seal Sales May

Ifit $1000 Mark

Chairman Saubiders States This,
The'Most Effective Seal Sale
Yet In' Guf County

Hdrry Saunders, chairman of the
Christmas Seal Sale in Gulf county,
in a chatty letter to' the publisher
of The Star, states that 'the drive
this year is the most effective yet
-to be staged and. hopes that the
final total will pass the $1000
mark.
He desires to express apprecia-
tion to Lozal No. 14,35 of. the. In-
ternational Association of Ma-
chinists for the' benefit dance they
staged which netted $50 for the tu-
berculosis association and aided
materially in boosting returns.
"We hope to reach the $1000
mark on the Christmas Seal Sale,"
says S'aunders, "and anyone who
has not yet made .their return still
has time to d'o so. This is by far
the most effective Seal Sale we
have had in Gulf county, and' L
want. to express my personal
thanks to The Star for the co-op-
eration and publicity given this
worthy cause."

County Fails To

Meet Bond Quota

Was Next To Lowest of Eleven
Counties of State That Failed
To Go Over the Top

We hate to publish this story,
put pigs is pigs 'and facts is facts,
and the fact of -the matter is that
the people of Gulf county failed
miserably, in meeting their quota
of E bond's in the Victory Bond
Drive.
In. addition to Gulf county there
were 10 other counties of the state
that failed to attain their goal, but
'there' was only one couAty, Li'b-
erty with 41 p er cent .Of .a $000
quota, that was lower than Gulf.
The quota of E bonds Set for Gulf
coq'nty was $56,000, but only $29,-
276, or 5'2 per cent, was chalked up.
HTowever, in spite of our failure
to back up our government, the
state as' a whole fared fine. The
E. bond quota for the state was
set at $27,000,000 and Florida folks
dug down in their pockets to the
tune of $27,363,000, making 101.3
of quota.
The overall state quota for all
types of bonds was. $87,000,000 and
this was more, than doubled for a
total of $179,700,000f, or 206.8 per
cent.
Just because the war is over is
no reason why we should stop buy-
ing, bond's. They not only aid in
the demobilization program, but
they are the- best investment itl
the world. today, and- when we-buy
'them wer are- not- "-gPivig'- the' gov-
ernment a thing-we are helping
ourselves and the government Is
giving us $4 for every $3 we put
into the bonds.
There's going to be some hare
times ahead, folks, and this easy
money you're making today will
cbo-me in, mighty handy eight or ten
years from now if you invest it
in bonds.

Expect March of Dimes To

Exceed Last Year's Total

Joe Mira, chairman of the March
of Dimes for Gulf county, stated
yesterday that he expects the cam-
paign this year to far surpass wie
toal of $538.28 raised last year.
"On the basis of population," he
said, "that was only a little bet-
ter than seven and; one-half cents
per person. I know we can do bet-
ter than that this year."
Everyone is urged to drop small
change, in the coin boxes placed
at various points, mail in the dime
cards sent them. and buy tickets
for the President's Ball to be held
at Cetitennial Auditorium the eve-
ning of January 25.

Former Gunnery

Areas Now Open

To Fishermen

Gunnery Practice Ended at Tyn-
dall Field, Danger Sections
Now Unrestricted

Local fishermen may now fish
at will in' waters formerly used, as
gunnery areas for Tyndall Field,
It is announced by Colonel Walter
W. Gross, commanding officer at
Tyndall.
Gunnery training at Tyndall has
'been discontinued, at least tem-
porarily, and fishermen will have
no more such hazards. Without d'ul
warning. When firing is to 'be re-
sumed,' at any time, notices will be
placed in 'the papers. at least one
day ahead of time, and broadcast
on radio stations. Before firing
commences, aerial surveys will be
.made to see, that the areas are
clear of fishing or other craft and
picket boats will be placed to warn
vessels which might not have been
notified. Fishermen and small
boat' owners are urged to watch
papers carefully for such an-
nouncements.
Danger areas now open are
those used' for ground and aerial
firing, -almost directly south of St.
.Andrew's Sound.; south of Sand
Island near Apalachicola, and the
area in St. Joseph's Bay and sea-
ward- off St. Joseph Point.'
Colonel Gross said. the reason
foir reopening thl- ,|re s '~ viviliani-k
is that bhe warthml .p rgraju 'at
Tyndall Field is now completed
and there will be no more firing
until a new program goes into ef-
fect, which probably is a consider-
able time off.

THOMAS DUNCAN BRINGS
HOME GERMAN STAMPS
.,Thomps Duncan, while serving
with the army in Germany, in
helping mop up a captured town
ran across a box of German and
Luxemlbourg stamps in. the cellar
of a wrecked: house and brought
them home with him.
The editor'of The Star, being a
philatelist, looked over the collec-
tion casually (approximately 100,-
000 stamps) and estimated the lot
if sold in its entirety would bring
several thousand dollars. A closer
check will be made upon arrival of
a 1946 stamp catalog.

New Low Domestic Rate
EFFECTIVE WITH FESPRUAPN BILLING
The cost of your domestic electric service con-
tinues its, downward trend in direct reverse to
other cost-of-living items.
When our rates were reduced a year ,ago, a
promise was made that a further reduction would
be made within eighteen months...that.promise has
been fulfilled five monthsahead of schedule.
As a result of this reduction and the others that
preceded it during the past twenty years, the \
price of your electric service is fifty percent less
while other prices have risen almost that much.
Now, with newer labor-saving appliances coming
on, the market, the homemakers of Florida have
another opportunity for better living electrically --
at these new low rates!
This voluntary reduction is a continuance of our
policy qf service to customer, community and
country.


This company is proud to be
a 'public utility' in the most demo-
cratic sense of the word, owned and
controlled by more than 20,000 stock-
holders, many of whom are residents
of the territory served.

Several Prospects

Toying With Idea

of Senatorial Race

Spessard Holland Only One Yet
To Qualify In Race for Toga
Of Senator Andrews

Opposition for Spessard L. Hol-
land for the U. S. senate seat
from which Senator Charles An-
drews is retiring appeared more
or less certain this week as con-
flicting reports of who 'will run
and who won't run circulated
through political channels of the
state.
Justice Alto Adams of the state
supreme court, who said he would
not be a candidate, has sold 4800
acres of land he owned west of
Ft. Pierce tor $120.000. Political
observers say this would be quite
,p neat sum for political purposes.
Polly Rose Balfe, active in Flor-
ida politics, will run, say her inti-
mnate friends. She spends her time
between Jacksonvile, Tampa and
NMiami and keeps her hand on the
political pulse.
Former Congressman Lex Green
of Starke, who operates two news-
papers, is reported to be toying
with the idea. Friend-s say he may
run against incumbent Congress-
man Emory Price if he doesn't run
.for the senate and decides not to
enter the 1948 gubernatorial lists.
Mark Wilcox, former Soutn
Florida congressman, and Repre-
sentative J. Hardin Peterson are
both listed as possible starters.
To date, Holland is the only one
who has qualified in the race by
planking down $500 before Secre-
tary of State Bob Gray.

Income Tax Penalty
Effective March 15

A penalty 'of 5 per cent is placed
on all unpaid income tax for 1945
on which a return was not filed or
which has not: been paid by March
15. One 'per cent is added' for
each additional month,' the whole
amount pot to exceed 10 per cent
of the amount unpaid.
If you estimate your tax too
low you are subject to a penalty,
but only if you unedrestimate it
by more than'33% per cent if a
farmer, or 20 per cent if not a
formerr.
However, if you based your 1945
estimate on actual 1944 income
and figured the tax at 1945 rates
and, exemptions there will be no
penalty.

Anglo-Saxons and Danes called
Good Friday "Long Friday," prob-
ably an allusion to the length or
the services marking the djay.


Occupational Diseases
Are To Be Catalogued

A state-wide, campaign to locate
and eventually control diseases in
industry was, launched this week
by the state board of health in co-
operation with the Florida indus-
.rial commission.

gram is an outcome of an act

The spoken r7ord is given scant attention; the printed word

the printed word thoroughly convinces. The spoken word
is lost; the printed word remains.

Owr Country Right or Wrong

ITS YOURS IF YOU GO AFTER IT'
'A number of men around Port St. Joe just
discharged from the service seem to be a bit
puzzled about their civilian future, and per-
haps a bit frightened. They really shouldn't
be, for they still live in the land of oppor-
tunity.
Nothing has been lost while they have been
away defending their country. In fact, we
might go so far as to say that opportunities
-are vastly greater and more attractive thpin
when we were discharged from the-army 26
years ago. The country will have to be re-
built practically from the ground up. Young
men of initiative and courage never had a bet-
ter chance, regardless where they live.
But-there is one very important qualifica-
tion: The rules of the game have not been
changed. You've still got to go out and get
it yourself by hard work. Nobody is going to
plop it down in your lap, handsomely wrapped.
'Yeah, Joe, it's there for you to git, but
you've got to do the gittin' yourself.


THAT SATURDAY BATH
Notice that advertisement of the Sunny
State Service in the adjoining column? Re-
member when you took your Saturday night
bath like that, in a tub before the kitchen
stove (that is, if you're that old) ? The ivater
was heated on the stove and sometimes it was
hard to decide whether to enjoy the pleasure
of plenty of water and the work involved in
emptying it, or to get along with a skimpy
two or three inches. And you had the choice
of sitting with your knees up under your chin,
kneeling'or standing up. Btit it didn't make
much difference either way regarding the
amount of water that was splashed on the
floor. We often wondered why mother in-
sisted on baths once a week.
Good old days? Perhaps. But the modern
tub arranged so that water can run in, tarry
a while, and then run out makes life more
pleasant and efficient.

The treasury department states that 85,-
000,000, or 60 per cent, of the people own war
bonds. From the looks of things that figure
is due for a rapid drop unless the strike situa-
tion is cleared up soon, for workers on strike
are cashing in theirr bonds faster and faster in
order to eat.

In case you don't know exactly what that
"motel" Sol Shirey is building over there on
Monument Avenue is, it's a sort of glorified
tourist court or motorists' hotel.

Governor Tells Members He Has
No Pet Theories. To
Offer Them


A 15,man tax study committee
has set up a staff of specialists
and consultants an d laid the
groundwork for a ,broad program
designed to make adjustments in
a, Florida tax system Governor
Millard Caldwell has called a
"patchwork."
The governor, who named the
committee in carrying out a prom-
ise ,he gave during the 1945 legis-
lature, told the members ,at a
meeting heldi in Tallahassee that
he had "no ppt theories" and urged
them to recomnmenid an equitable"
tax structure that will meet state
needs for "a long time to come."
IHe told the committee it will
have "complete latitude in cover-
ing the whole field of taxation and
bringing in recommendations which
you feel will give, us normal reve-
nues for operation of the govern-
ment over good years and poem
years for a long time to come.
"You first will have to deter-
mine, what the normal operating
costs will be and then what taxes
will be needed during the lean
years-not the fat years-so this
state will not b,e, strapped to meet

its essential requirements and will
not be forced to leyy an expedient
tax.".
He asked, them to -consider the
future growth of ttie state in, mak-
ing recommendations on what pres-
ent. taxes should be retained or
discarded, reduced or increased.
Committee members emphasized
that the group's program must be
practical, acceptable to both the
legislature and the people, and
must not appear to favor any spe-
cial group or interest.
The committee adopted, a plan
of procedure whereby it will ex-


amine these four broad, aspects of
taxation:
The; sum total of *taxes neces-
sary to operate the state govern-
ment; present and prospective
sources of the needed revenue;
methods and costs of collecting
each of the various levies, and
spheres of taxation for *the state
and its local units.
NO COMPETITION
Jones: "To what do you at-
tribute your success?"
Smith: "Wen, I'm trying to make
an honest living, and there's no
competition."
