The editor of The S'tar this week
receive a most interesting book-
let from Nathan Mayo, commls-
s'ioner of agriculture, containing(
results of the 1945 state census.
Ohe book is composed mostly of
tables showing the general and
.steady growth of the state's popu-
lation from 1830 to 1945. These
tables show by race, sex and age
periods the population of the coun-
ties, and other civil and political
divisions, and the place of birth. -
In 182.1 the Territory of Florida
was organized into two counties.
Escamnbia (West Florida) compris-
ing the territory west of the Su-
wannee River, and St. Johns (East
Floridla) including the rest of the
territory of Florid'a.
Theo first census was taken in
1830 by the United States govern-
ment, 'but since Gulf county was
carved, out of Calhoun county in
192,5, we are interested mostly in
the census figures since 1925.
However, the early census fig-
ures are interesting, and we "find
that Calhoun county was cut from
Jackson county in 1838, being listed
in the 1840 census with a popula-.
tion of 1,142. The 1925 census.
gave Calhoun 11,365 population,
but in 19.30 it had 7,298, since Gult
county had come into being in
1925 with ,. population of 3,182.
As thei five-year census' were
.taken we find the population of
Gulf county gradually climbing-
1935, 3,099; 1940, 6,951, and 1945,
Of course there is no orention of
old, St. Joseph, which in 1840 was'
the largest city in Florida with an
estim-ated population of 10,000 and
was Ibeing considered as the capi-
tol of the state. But those are past
glories, andi Port St. Joe and: Gulf
county must reckon with the pres-
Checking on through this inter-
esting 'booklet, we find that the
1945 census gives Gulf county
2,593 white males and 2,485 white
females, and a negro population of
974 males and 958 females.
Broken down into precincts we
find the following:
Precinct 1, Wewahitchka-White
1,251; negro, 431. Of voting age:
White, 719; negro, 218.

Ow Country 1g Right or Wrong
INGROWN RACKET MAY FESTER
While there has been little or no black
marketing here in Port St. Joe, other parts
of the country have not been so lucky, and
black marketing might yet turn out to be the
most serious "racket" epicFemic the nation
has ever experienced. It has been something
the public has been hearing and reading about
but it seems yet to be something vague and
formidable something buried deep in an
underworld all its own, and again something
which has been-all too fortunate in conduct-
ing its illicit operations with an apparent min-
imum of official counter-action.
The black market "biggies" are obviously
racketeers of the highest calibre the kind
who want all the money in the world. They'
will have, money, and lots of it, long after
presentday shortages are ended, and. with
this money many of them are certain to fi-
nance new rackets. Bootleggers of the pro-
hibition era were never a more serious threat
to the nation and the racketeers of those
years were constantly subject to surprise en-
counters with efficiently organized groups of
federal'agefts who, when they set their linids
to it, had easier means of tracking down the
gangster mobs and those who were virtual'
amateurs in the business.
Now the black market boys are "getting
away with murder" without the need of kill-
ing each other off as did the bootlegging mob-
sters. They have carried on and escaped of-
ficial action, probably because the"nation hah
been too busy with wartime and post-war
problems to make any serious inroads on
their operations, while the public has been
both intimidated and largely indifferent to
their present role in American life.
Legislators now appear to be split over the
question of continuation of the OPA as a
necessary effort in staving off inflation. Who
among the experts is right as to the need of
further continuance of the OPA, is difficult
to say. All kinds of theories have been ad-
vanced, some based on intelligent study, and
others arising of the selfish impulses of those
who have special axes to grind in the busi-
ness, industrial or political world.
One thing, at least, appears to be certain.
If the black market boys have the control
over present market conditions, as some ex-
perts say they have, then what the nation
needs right now is an OPA to give about all
of its attention to these shady characters
Senator Claude Pepper apparently doesn't
realize that all wealth comes from the land,
for last week he cancelled several speaking
engagements in Florida to remain in Wash-
ington to fight the farm parity price amend-
ment to the minimum wage bill which was
before the senate. The amendment, sponsored
by Senator Russell of Georgia, would give the
farmer the privilege to up his prices to offset
increased labor costs. It was written into the
bill over the bitter protests of Pepper.
Malay is one of the easiest languages in the
world to learn-it has few verbs, none of them
irregular, no articles, no prepositions, and no
grammar. Indianapolis News. We've been
wondering for a long time what language our
Port St. Joe high school boys and girls have
been using. Now we know-it's Malay.
With men's shirts scarcer than hen's teeth,
we think it would be a good idea if someone
, would do something about a painted-on shirt
similar to those liquid stockings the women
are getting by with. Personally, we'd prefer
something with red and green stripes.
If you have an hour to spare, don't spend it

P.-T. A. Hears Talks On
The regular monthly meeting of
the Parent- Teachers Association
was held in the school library on
Thursday afternoon of last week,
with Mrs. Ralph Swatts, president,
presiding. After calling the session
to order she turned the meeting
over to Prof. W. A. Biggart, pro-
gram chairman, who introduced
Reiv. W. T. Wrenn, Methodist min-
ister, who gave the devotional.
Theme of the program was "The
School's Place In the Communiity,"
and Prof. Biggart pointed out that
this position was more than schol-
astic. He stated that since schools
play a major part in young peo-
ple's lives, the students should be
led in the right way in every
phase of future living. In order to
accomplish the aims of education
the parents' co-operation is most
essential, he pointed out, and re-
quested that the recreational pro-
gram for the summer months have
the backing and co-operation of
parents of the city in order that
it be a success.
Mr. Biggart then introduced E.
M. Bailey, Port St. Joe recrea-
tional director, who gave the group
a complete outline of his recrea-
tional plans for the months of va-
cation. The city has granted use
of the lot across Long Avenue op-
posite the school grounds folr use
as a playground.
During the business meeting
Mrs. Ralph Rich was named chair-
man of a committee to 'investi-
gate the possibility of obtaining
public subscribers to use the li-
brary and thus enable it to be
kept open during the. summer
Mrs. Siwatts. announced that Mr.
Beckham, band director, had said
that the P.-T. A. party for the band
could be held, in two weeks, and

for the party, and was instructed
to call on members for help..
The nominating committee sub-
mitted its report for officers for
the ensuing year, as follows: Mrs.
Ralph S'watts, president; Mrs. Ed
Ramsey, first vice-president; Mrs.
A. L. Ward, second vice-president;
Mrs. Purvis Howell, secretary;
