VOLUME IX PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1946 NUMBER 19


Senior Class To

Present Pl a y

February 15th

Three-Act Comedy, 'Don't Be Bash-
ful,' Will Be Given At
High School

The senior, class of the Port St.
Joe high school will present their
class play, a three-act comedy,
'Don't Be Bashful," at 8 o'clock
next Friday night, February 15, at
the high school auditorium.
The cast is as follows:
Nancy Adams -------Hazel Cason
Walter Adams ---. Howard Kelly
Grace Adams -- Frenchie Wooden
Ken Hunt --------- Jack Mahon
Sam Hunt ------- Maurice Maige
/Judy Hunt --- Betty Sue McPhaul
Larry Marshal ----- Dan. Coleman
Phyllis Burke -- Margaret Tharpe
Frances Terry ---- Bunny Martin
Caroline Green -_ Eloise Scheffer
Officer Pluck ---- Wesley Ramsey
S-ene of the. play is the living
raoom of the Adams cottage at a
popular summer resort. It is just a
peaceful June day until 'Nancy
Adams suddenly decides to becomern
a wolf and get her man instead of
a sheep buried in a book. Naturally
.she couldn't use the simple way of
just telling the guy -she had to
stir up a rumpus and go about it
the hard way. It's a good thing she
did choose the hard! way, though,
otherwise this play would be over
in about ten minutes.
In the first act Nancy steals a
painting and. makes up. hew mind.
During the second act some guy
gets poisoned 'from ;eating a nuw
cook's food, and in the third 1act
the mystery is solved-naturally.
If you believe this review is
brief and you're curious, the best
way to satisfy your curiosity is to
'gq 'and see the play next Friday
evening.

Walter Gardner finally opened his

Goal In Sight

By MARJORIE PHILYAW
Last week contained so many
happenings, in the life of the school
library that wArd of mouth could,
not spread all of the good news, so
again we depend on Editor Bill and
The Star for dissemination.
Due to the benev61lence of Mrs.
Alfred I. duPont, a book order for
some 260 books was mailed. Mrs.
duPont gave, $500 to the library,
and with the discount for cash their
amount was stretched to $625.
In addition to this unexpected
gift, the P.-T. A. contributed. $400,

Fire Chief Asks Streets

Be Cleared For Truck

Fire 'Chief Dan Brooks is asking
the co-operation of the public In
keeping the s'Oreets elear when the
truck is going to ,a fire.
In the past it has been the habit
of many motorists to start backing
out into the s.h'edt as soon as they
hear the fire siren. The 'truck, al-
ways comes up Reid, Avenue :to
pick up the firemen before pro-
ceeding 'to the fire, and if it Is
forced to stop because of a car in
the way, much valuable time is
lost.
Let's all co-operate by pulling to
the side of the street when we
hear the truck siren-remember, it
might be your house that is on
fire and a few moments lost might
mean the difference between sav-
ing the building or having it com-
pletely ddstroyedl.

Our Country Right or Wrong

HANG THIS UP FOR REFERENCE
With all our local drug stores handling
DDT, the insecticide that has worked mir-
acles in controlling or eliminating many pests
(politicians seem immune to it), and the U. S.
Public Health Service formulating plans to
spray Gulf county homes in the near future,
our readers are urged to keep the following
precautions in mind if they are going to have
anything to do with DDT:`
Keep DDT insecticides where they will not
be used as medicine or in foods.
Wash thoroughly hands and any parts of
the skin that come in contact with oil solu-
tions.
Avoid inhalation from sprays and aerosol
bombs (bug bombs to you).
If large-scale application is made, a mask is
advised to avoid irritation from kerosene or
inhalation of DDT.
Some ventilation is necessary during treat-'
ment.
Watch out for fire.
Cover or remove any food when DDT 7s
being applied; cover the goldfish boiV; re-
move the canary from the room.
Do not spray dogs, cats, husbands or other
similar household pets.
Keep children and pets away from sprayed
areas until sprays have dried.

When a candidate is going about over the
country soliciting votes he wants to he called
Jim, Bill, Tom, Honest John, or whatever his
first name may be. When he's elected he
goes off in a huff if you don't address him as
"the most esteemed honorable," and the like.

An optimist is a fellow who thinks all this
money the government has been advancing
won't have to 'be paid back.

COMING STYLES
The various styles of furniture accurately
reflect the manners and attitudes of the pe-
riod in which they were developed. ITudor
furniture, for example, bears the imprint of
the heavy stolidity of Henry VIl's time.
Roccoco furniture accurately portrays the
floridity of Florentine Italy. The stateliness
of Queen Anne's England is mirrored in a
charming style still popular today. So close is
the interrelation that, as in the case of Mr.
Chippendale the design changed in the life-
time of a single designer.
Therefore, one can only accept with qualms
an announcement that American furniture
makers, their slates wiped clean by wartime
concentration of materiel of war, are bring-
ing out new designs to fill the backlog of ac-
cumulated demand.
If the designs reflect the times, as experi-
ence would indicate, the furniture will be
strange indeed. It will be rickety, as our
world is. The fabric will probably come 'apart
at the seams, as civilization threatens to do.
Stylistically, it will seem unable to make up
its mind. The chairs will be uneasy ones. And
we shall be 'lucky if they don't fall apart al-
together. -Omaha World-Herald.

RAZOR VS. POWDER PUFF
Ever feel embarrassed when your wife or
girl friend hauls out lipstick and compact and
proceeds to "make up" her face in public?
Well, if you have, here's your chance to pay
them back, as it were, in their own coin.
Seems that 'a Lynn, Mass., inventor named
Ralph G. Arey has come up with a vest pocket
razor that requires neither soap, water nor
electricity to do a good job on your beard. All
you have to do is take it out-any place, any
time-and start shaving and let the whis-
kers fall where they may.
Chances are the lady in your life will ob,
ject strenuously to any move on your part to
bring this hitherto strictly bathroom operation
into the open which, of course, gives you
the opportunity you want to talk compro-
mise. In othe words, you should have the
edge on her in this matter of propriety -a
razor's edge, as it were. -Miami Post.

Claims have been put forth that a trip into
the stratosphere will cute hay fever. Well,
now that we've contacted the moon by radio
perhaps soon we will be sending people on a
trip to the moon to cure lunacy.

Headline in Jacksonville Times-Union: "Tax

at times feel like clubbing our tax officials.

HEADACHES

THE


Once more the farmer is being asked to break all
'food production records. To plow more acres, feed more
livestock and harvest more crops than ever before. He
is being asked\ to do this so that America may continue
to feed and clothe the needy throughout the world, as
well as our own folks at home.

To carry out this job the farmer must have tools
of production. Most of those he owns have taken a ter-
rific beating. They can't be tied together much longer
with rusty fence wire.

In the teeth of this situation, the farmer ran into
a strike in the steel industry a strike which hit at
the heart of food production.

When the steel plants shut down, manufacturers of
farm machinery and equipment, farm trucks and trac-
tors cannot get* steel for their products.

This year the farmer won't receive as many of the
replacements he desperately needs. He'll fight ahead
with his old. broken machinery trying to crack another
food production record, but the cards are stacked against
him.

All this means more headaches for the farmer -
loss of vital food production, and a bad dent in his
pocketbook.

FACTS TOO FREQUENTLY OMITTED

The steel strike was called by the United Steel-
workers of America-CTO, which insists on a wage in-
crease totaling $166,000,000. The U. S. Steel Corporation


!ARMER




has offered a wage rise which if applied throughout the
industry would amount to $135,000,000.

Steel workers are already among the highest paid
wage-earners in America. Before the strike their av-
erage earnings were approximately $1.16 an hour, $9.26
a day and $46.32 a week on a forty-hour week. The
U. S. Steel offer would have given them about $1.31 an
hour, $10.46 a day and $52.32 a week. But they refused
it, and accused the steel industry of conspiring to ruin
the union with an offered wage increase of $25 a month,
the highest increase in the industry's history.

The strike is a direct violation of the contract be-
tween the union and the steel companies. The union
wanted a long-term contract and got it. The union
agreed not to strike during the life of the contract. Yet,
the union struck on January 21.

FIGHTING FOR A WAY OF LIFE
Farmers have a big stake in continuous steel pro-
duction. They have an opportunity to say what they
think about unchecked labor monopolies which bring to
a stop the nation's recovery efforts, through excessive
wage demands which could only add to inflation and
cause soaring prices.

Not until enough of them protest unfair, dictatorial
actions and urge proper safeguards against arrogant,
hleedless union leadership and one-sided labor laws will
the country get back to sane, profitable production
where evervune works together toward a better stan-
dard of living.

2. They may bring with them

New Numbering System

For Florida's Highways

Tourists motoring to Florida will
have no excuse for getting lost
when; the state's new road num-
bering system goes in-to eftfet.
The plan, which will be inaugu-
rated, as soon as markers can be
obtained, provides that north and
south roads shall carry odd. num-
bers, with No. 1 assigned to the
most easterly highway. East and
West roads will bear even num-
bers, with No. 2 assigned to the
road on the extreme north. In ad-
dition, certain "control roads"
have been selected for the purpose
of dividing the. state into. seg-
ments within which an appropri-
ate numbering plan can 'be used.
Markers, Incoideintally, will carry


an outline map of Florida.
The idea is borrowed for cer-
tain northern state-s which have
used it for some time to advant-
age. It should aid' materially in,
speeding on their way the mil-
lions of "foreign" motorists who
visit Florida annually.
