VOLtUME IX PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, JULY 26, 1946 NUMBER 43
In St. Joe Since
Death of OPA
Some Customers Passing- Up High
Priced Items; Drop Expected.
Within Month or So
A check of food prices in Port
St. Joe, made this week by The
Star, shows that price jumps of
from 15 to 70 per cent have oc-
curred here on m6st all short conm-
bmodities since the death of OPA.
We find that butter, which the
housewifei previously had only to
'worry about how to get, has taken
the biggest jump. We are told
that the wholesale price on this
commodity has been boosted to 80
cents per pound, with the buyer
laying out tro:11 88 to 96 cents per
pound'. Previously butter prices
here had' been from 56 to 60 cents.
One local grocer s-aid- he refused
to buy butter from the wholesaler
at the 80-cent rate.
Oleomargarine, first cousin to
'butter, and which more and' more
housewives have been using, has
also taken a slight jump. Previous
.retail prices averaged about 2S
cents while this week it was being
sold at from 35 to 38 cents per
Cooking oil is marked on the av-
erage at $2.80 per gallon (if you
can find it) with one store selling
it by the quart at 54 cents. .Pre-
vious price was $1.79 per gallon.
Pure lard averages about 50 cents
a ,ound-, with 'various grades 01
compoind y'-minningifrom 21 cents
to 68- cents per pound.
At the meat counters we find
that best grades of steak range
from.,55 to 65 cents per pound;
pork from 49 to 52 cents; smoked
ham, 70 cents; cheese, 52 to 69
cents; dressed fryers, 75 cents
SRice (now real scarce) has more
than doubled in price, and water-
ground meal is selling for about
12 cents a pound.
Bacon, an item that has long
been an "under the counter" item,
is selling at an average price or
*about 55 cents per pound, and the
old reliable stew beef is quoted at
45 cents a pound'.
Most local merchants are of the
opinion that prices will be, show-
ing a dtop within the next month
or so due to the fact that custom-
ers- are passing up the high priced
items, and seeking substitutes or
doing without. It is the general hbe-
lief that such customer strikes will

Saints Take County Seat Team
Twice During Week To Further
Clinch Hold On Top Position
The St. Joe Saints chalked up'.
two wins over the Wewahitchka
'Gators this week in the Gulf Coast
League to further clinch their' hold
on first place. Sunday's game+
played here, resulted in an 8-I.
score and Wednesday's tilt at the
county seat town wsas taken by the
Saints 11 to 4.
Wednesday's game was the scene
of two of the most disgraceful
acts of rowdyism over seen at'a
league game. The first, when two
women in the bleachers started' an
argument which eventually became
a free-for-all- with no holds barred
and pop bottles and knives used
freely, while begun as strictly a
Wewahitchka clan affair, eventu-
ally drew in several St. Joe rooters
who -were forced to protect them-
selves a's best they might. This
squabble wa.s broken up after some
15 minutes while, the game was
postponed, since some of the 'Gator
players were dusting off their
knuckles on various and sundry
hapless chins and heads.

This uprising was also quelled,
while play was held up. No ar-
rests were made.
At this point the 'Gator manager
demanded that the game be called
off as "no contest" (which would
have been- fine business on his
part, since the score was 10 to 4
in favor of the Saints). Manager
Richard Porter was agreeable pro-

zens of Wewahitchka over the fact
that there are no more games be-
tween the 'GitoT:g and'-Saints for,
the remainder of the Gulf Coast
schedule, for they think too much
of their home town to have its
reputation muddied up by sucu
disgraceful exhibitions as feature
The Saints' Sunday tilt with the
Wewahitcbka 'Gators was strictly
a pitcher's battle up to the sixth
inning, with Lloyd on the mound
for St. Joe and Jenks hurling for
Wewa. In that frame Lloyd asked
to be relieved' after he had walked
Millergren and. given Williams two
balls. Lefty Thomason took over
but before he could retire the visi-
tors, Millergren crossed the' plate
on a hit through second by Harden.
However, the Saints more than
evened things up in their half of
the sixth by. shoving over four
counters. Frank Hannon led off
with a single and John Lane fol-
lowed with a two-bagger, at which
point Jenks was yanked and the
highly-touted Williams took the
mound, for the 'Gators, failing dis-
mally in halting the runaway. Tom
Mitchell was out at first and Han-
non came in from third on a wild
pitch, with Lane going to third;
Leonard Belin got a walk when hit
by a pitched ball; Dallas Weeks
socked one to centerfield to drive
in Lane and Belin; the Saint.
catcher struck out to "make two
away; Alton Dendy hit a long fly
to left field for two bases, seno-
ing Weeks home; W. J. Herring
was safe at first on a high throw
by the shortstop, and. Thomason
sttruck out to retire the side.
Three 'Gators faced Thomason
in the 'seventh, two of them eming
retired by strikeouts, and the local
lads again started a merry-g--
round to mark up four more runs.
Hannon again led oiff with a two-
base hit to center field; Lane .was
out on a line drive to short;
Mitchell got a one-bagger, and
then Belin knocked a homer over
the left field, fence to drive in
Hannon and Mitchell.
This was too much for the We-
wahitchka manager, and he sent
in Davidson (former Saint hurler)
to relieve Williams. However, the
Saints were not particularly im-
pressed. McCall struck out; the
Saint catcher got a two-bagger and
then stole third; Dendy walked
and the local catcher crossed the
plate as the 'Gators made a play
for Dendy at second. The, scoring
ended when Herring, the eighth
man at the. plate, hit a line drive
to second and was but at first.
The eighth was three up, three
down for bothteams, ,and but four
men faced Thomason in the first
of the ninth to end there game with
an 8 -1 score in favor of St. Joe.
Hannon led the Saints in hitting,
getting on base three times out of
five trips' to the plate, and Dendy
got two for four. Harden was top
man 'for the 'Gators, getting two
of their five hits in four times up.

Map of State Show s
New and Simplified
The editor of The Star is' in re-
ceipt of a map of Florida from the
state road department showing all
highways as they will be numbered
under the' simplified system soon
to -be 'put into effect throughout
All roads leading from north to
south bear odd numbers, with the
number 1 assigned to the extreme
easterly road. All roads leading
from east *to west bear even num-
bers, with the numlbe,r 2 assigned
to the extreme northerly road.
Certain control, road's have been
selected for the purpose of divid-
ing the state into segments. The
north and south control roads are
one and two-digit numbers ending
in 5 (5, 15, 25, 365, 465, 65, 75, 85, 95)
and the east and west control
roads are two-dligit numbers end-
ing in zero (10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60,
70, 80, 90). There are also four im-
portant diagonal roads, two leaa-
ing from northeast to southwest
and two leading from northwest to
southeast- numbered 100, 200, 500
Secondary or short length roads
are assigned three-digit numbers
from 101 to 999, the first number
placing the location with relation
to the east-west control routes.
Under the new system Port St.
Joe will be on State Highway 30
(federal 98), the highway to We-
wahitchka will be No. 71, that
from Beacon Hill to Wewahitohka
No. 386, and the Panama Cliy-
'Wewahitchka highway No. 22.
When we go to Tallahassee via
Bloun'tstown we will take 71 from
St. Joe to Blountstown, and then
change over to No. 20 (formerly
No. 500). Going to the state capi-
tal via Apalachicola on new No. 30
it suddenly becomes No. 61 at Wa-
kulla Springs where it turns north.

Our Country -" Right or Wrong
THE LEGISLATORS GET WISE
One of the smartest actions Florida's legis-
lators have ever taken occurred in Tampa last
week-end when members of the 1947 house 'of
representatives, in caucus to select a speaker,
decided to postpone any campaigning for the
1949 speakership until after the next .session
gets under way in April. This resolution,
which was reported to have been adopted
unanimously,, may not stop the "politicing"
which is sure to take place, but it certainly
will keep it under cover. Any action taken
will be unknown to the voters and therefore
will not be so obnoxious.
Speakership in the house of representatives
is a very important position-in fact, one ot
the most important in our complex setup of
state government. A speaker co-operating
with the governor can put across any program
either desires, and on the other hand, if they
are not together, one acts as a balance on the
other. In the past it has been possible for the
governor to have enough nceml.'ers on his side
to put across any program he desires. These
members line. up with the governor because
of friendship, promises, or expected promises,
much of which -comes during the campaign
for the speakership when the friends of the
governor attempt to install one of his iavor-
ites in the position. Sometimes this is done
without the knowledge of the chief executive
This practice, which has grown so much in
the past eight or ten years, was getting into
the position of putting the "cart before the
horse." Promises were made, commitments
expressed and plans drawn for sessions still
three or four years in advance. All of the
members still were to face the electorate.
Pressure groups were organized to help elect
certain legislators, in many cases, merely be-
cause they were favorable to the person who
had been named speaker.
This meant that lines were drawn months
before tie legislature met and any legislation
not favorable to the group would not have
had the ghost of a chance of consideration, re-.
gardless of its merits.
Yes, it was becoming a system whereby
members of the legislature hoped to perpetu-
ate themselves in office, and we join with
other Floridians in rejoicing at the death of
the practice, or at least its curtailment.-The
Holmes County Advertiser.

ONCE UPON A TIME
Once upon a time there was a man who
lived in a town and spent all his money away
from home. He was sure that he could take
care of himself, and that his town didn't mean
anything to him.
After a few years, his business wasn't as
keen as he had hoped it would be, his friends
didn't seem to think he was quite as import-
ant as he thought he was, and trade seemed
to flow by his doors.
He began to watch his competition, who
he found was an intelligent advertiser, a con-
tributor to the public purse, a man anxious to
give some of his time and thought to co'm-
munity projects, and a believer in the fact that
it pays to keep money at home, where it can
keep floating around between the stores and
And, after noting all these factors, he con-
tinued to wonder why some of his old cus-
tomers went to his competitor, and why al-
most everybody had the idea that he was a
tightwad and his competitor a public-spirited
leader of community life.-Exchange.
PLANS GO AWRY
Just seems like a man works like the dick-
ens, plans, saves and schemes, in an effort to
accumulate enough worldly goods so that he
can retire and sleep late in the mornings. Then
by the time he has done that, he has reached
the age where he can't stay awake in the eve-
nings and can't sleep late in the mornings.-
Reinbeck (Ia.) Courier.
THAT TIME OF YEAR
This is the time of year when a fellow no
sooner gets to rummaging in the closet for
his fishing rod or golf shoes than he hears
a voice sweetly asking if he doesn't think the
screens ought to be painted, or the storm
windows taken off.--The Christian Science
Many things may be short, but there seems
to be more brands of fountain pens that write
under water for three years without refilling
than there are people, and enough makes of

child in the country to wear one on each

Two American movies have been withdrawn
