Joe' high school band walked, oft
with second division honors in
drill, sight reading and -musiciar-
ship and the youngs'teps did it
with a 30-piece 'band' of which but
three members had' ever before
participated in a festival. The peo-
ple of this city should really be
proud of its organization.
. Director Stanford Beckham said
lie "just couldn't see how they did
it," but the payoff was through
two months of intensive practice
The main factor that led to the
second division rating in marching
was the leadership o'f Drum Major
Bill Traweek. Two months ago Bill
had: never held a baton, nor did
he know the first signal. With a
little work he mastered the baton,
learned the maneuvers, signals
and execution of the march steps.
If ever a veteran drum major lea,
a band better, we must see him.

Perkinbs' said, K-iwanis could lay
claim to being one of the oldest
civic organizations in existence,
though actually founded in 1915.
Step by step, he outlined the pro-
gress of Kiwanis down to the
present day when its growth has
reached over 2,350 clubs with' a
combined membership of more
than 156,000. Concluding his ad-

Night To Organize
Jr. C. of C. Here
Believed Such An Organization
Would Be Big Asset To
A meeting of all interested per-
sons has been called for next
Tuesday night at 8 o'clock in th-'0
high school auditorium for the
purpose of organizing a junior
chamber of commerce in Port St.
Joe. At that "time a delegation
from t h e Apalachicola Junior
Chamber of Commerce will be on
hand to assist in formulating this
much-needed .civic organization.
In'all cities the junior chamber
of commerce is the organization
which generally takes the lead in
all types of civic improvements..
The need. for such an organization
in Port St. Joe is very apparent,
but without tlhe all-out effort and
support of citizens of the city it
will not be able to succeed in its,
Many groups in past years have
endeavored to do what a junior
chamber of commerce can do, but
have met with failure simply be-
cause of the lack of proper organt-
zation. A civic body such as the
junior chamber of commerce, com-
posed' of 'business men, profes-
sional men,. and working men,- all
aiming for the same goal, "A RBt-.
ter. Prti St e, will
achieve what has not been done
in the past.
As was expresesd by a former
governor of Florida when 'address-
ing the state 'junior chamber of.
commerce meeting a .few years'
ago: "The junior chamber of com-
merte is an integral part of the
life of every city, small or large,
and should be the means whereby
the consensus of opinion would be
made known concerning city gov-
ernment, civic improvements and

Our Country Right or Wrong
A DOUBLE MEANING
Easter is commemorative of the spirit of
ascension; and, in this sense, it is doubly sig-
nificant this year< In a second commemora-
tive sense, we can give thanks for emergence
from the black extinction of war into the
promise of new life, happiness and clarity
This, coupled with the more sacred signifi-
cance, is sufficient to impart the fullest sense
of joyousness to our Easter services and cele-
brations this year.
Looking ahead towards the further feeling
of resurrection, we can speculate hopefully on
the psychological effect of the first war-free
summer in six years. Summer alone is a balm
for many things, and, combined with the first
full-hearted enjoyment of peace, it may go
even further. At least that's a hope we might
tuck away inside our Easter basket.
Keep smiling-and buy U S Savings Bonds.
THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, GULF COUNTY, FLORIDA
MORE INFORMATION WOULD HELP
There is growing up in this country a criti-
cal attitude to the Russian government.
Perhaps this attitude is justified- Certainly
if all the statements that are coming out of
Russia are true, then it. behooves this country
to keep a weather eye on her activities.
But, it seems to the editor of The Star, that
the true attitude we should take to the Rus-
sian government should be that of temperate
consideration. What we should do is to insist
that our own government define just how
our. policy and Russia's conflict. To build up
an antagonism against Russia, based on
casual reports from Russia, without some
guidance from the state department is to
make up our minds without having official in-
formation on which to base our decision.
'The Russians think differently from our-
selves. Talk to any returning GI who has been
in contact with Russians and they will say
frankly that they do not understand them.
Yet, if we are not to have an enemy of that
country, it is our job to try to understand
them. But we are hardly in a position to do
so as long as we get piecemeal reports which
come to use from people who are not in a po-
sition to know what moves are in progress.
Our state department owes it to the citizens
of this country to be specific on the subject
of Russia. Have we reason to fear them? Are
we on bad terms? Is she violating her agree-
ments with us? These are questions for which
we seek an answer. When' we have a state
department report we gre then in a position
to make up our minds and our attitude. Un-
til then, we are merely floundering around
in the dark.
Stockings of spun steel,' now in the. experi-
mental stage, should fill a long-felt need un-
