Kiwanians Hear Talk
And View Film/On TB
Mrs. Ramona Masure, field sec-
retary of the Florida Tuberculosis
and Health Association, was the
guest of the Kiwanis Club at itb
Wednesday luncheon. Besides giv-
ing a very interesting address,
Mrs. Masure presented a film
about her subject, Maurice Maige
assisting with the projection.
"Each year," she said. "about

die from tuberculosis. Florida has
a rate of about 900 deaths yearly,
While TB is still a very dangerous
enemy to humanity, definite cura-
tive .methods are being employed
to successfully combat the dis-
ease. X-ray units annually travel
theta state, giving free X-rays to the
public and urging everyone to sub-
mit to chest X-rays. Besides, the
association is using means to edu-
cate the public to the menace or
TB. If'people could be made to re-
alize that TB can be cure wheu
found in time, many lives could
be saved if regular cnest X-rays
are made." Mrs. Masum:e continued.
She pointed out that the state
sanitorium at Orlando has )been
su-pplenmeted by the addition of
the 210-bed hospital unit at Mari-
anna. supplied by the government
base there, and in addition a 400-
bed unit is being rapidly prepared
president Tom Owens pledged
the support of the local club to
the efforts of the association.

tor, was the guest speaker at the

tive talk on Alaska, using a num-

Glenn Boyles hasn't scooped us on
in his "Tattler" column.
We were down at the Miller
Drug Store last Thursday evening
looking for a birthday present for
our wife (her 27th she says-these
women get younger every year,
don't they) and. Mrs. Roy Gaskin
was loading up on a lot of face
creams and other beautifiers. As
she paid off Mr. Campbell she re-
memibered, that she was supposed
to buy her husband some cigars,
and when Campbell asked how
many she looked at her 24 cents in
change and asked how many she
could get for that. We gave
her a Tampa Nuggett to give to
Roy poor guy!
iMrs. H. A. Drake paid five dol-
lars for an aluminum disk in an
Atlanta store which, used in com-
bination with hot water and bak-
ing soda cleans her silverware up,
nice and pretty. For twenty
years we"ve been clearing our sil-
verware tby dumping it in an al-
minum kettle, shaking soda over
it and adding boiling water.
Did you ever see a man all dolled
up in his Sunday best and going
about barefoot? Well, that's what
Williston Chafin says their new
1946 Ford looks like. Seems
Williston parked his car in Mont-
gomery while getting something to
eat, and when he came out some
enterprising individual had ap-
propriated all four hub caps. "Fine
way to treat Florida tourists," says
W. E. Sneef, butcher over at tno
new Swatts Grocery and Market,
spent last week in Sneads (no rela-
tion) with his mother. When he
returned he brought back a half
beef. Who wouldn't take a
week off right now in order to get
that much red meat! And we
got a steak offen it before he sold
it all to the meat-hungry hordes.

Our old friend Jo Serra blew into The Star
office last Saturday for his semi-annual visit
to our fair city. Said he had to lay in enough
grub to see him through the winter. "Secur-
curity against getting hungry," he called it,
but he said it looked like about all he was go-
ing to take home with him was beans.
"And speaking' of security," said Jo, as he
cocked his feet up on our desk and spat a
stream of liquid tobacco into the wastebasket,
"that's one o' the strangest things I've seed
in a long time. They's bin more jabber 'bout
security these days and. less of it s'fur back
as I kin reccomeipber. 'Course, down in The
Swamp we don't have to worry much about
it-leastwise we didn't uster but now it's
gittin' so's even us folks down there who's
got fish, and turkeys, and deer, and honey,
and hogs, and practically everything we want,
even we're starting' to worry, too.
"You know. Mr. Editor, it's' a gittin, where
I can't even fish in peace no more. I used to
go fishing' and all I had on my mind wuz fishing .
Now I can't fish fer .worryin' 'bout bizness,
and guvamint and insecurity.
"It 'pears to me that about all the guvamint
is astryin' to do is to keep evvybuddy in hot
water jest as long as possible. Why, lookit all
them there agents, spenders, inspectors, spies,
co-ordinators, expeditors, agitators and jest
plain snoops, who goes around at the expense
of us taxpayers and stir up ruckuses. That's
why I can't buy no meat here in Port St. Joe
-or another place, fer that matter-and it's
why Wavne-McGowin can't git you that there
new car you bin vearnin' fer.
"Things is coin' to a heluva pass in this
here land o' the free and home o' the brave
when a feller can't fish for brim and catfish
and keep his mind off'n suckers."

but so far, thank goodness, we haven't seen

To hear Willie Wells and Basil
Strube arguing about trout fish-
ing, you'd think it was more im-
portant than the atom bomb.
Willie favors dry flies, Basil
pooh-poohs anything but wet flies.
Willie swears by a Royal Coach-
man; Basil won't hear of anything
but a Silver Doctor. And by the
time it comes to steel rods versus
bamboo rods ... #!X&**!?
But on Saturday, each got back
from Seward's creek with a. catch

Each had used his favorite kind
of fly, his favorite rod and his
favorite place to cast. So over a
friendly glass of beer, they al-
lowed as how maybe they were
both right which is how so
many arguments should end.
From where I sit, if we all re-
spected one another's different
opinions-whether about trout
flies, or drinking beer, or voting,
life would be a whole lot pleasanter.

WMay Be Mailed Without Request
Slips Between October 14
and November 15
Christmas packages for army
,personnel stationed overseas may
be mailed without request slips
between October 14 and November
15, according to announcement by
the adjutant general.
In past years the mailing period
for Christmas packages was from
,September 15 to October 15, to in-
sure receipt of the parcels over-
seas before Christmas Day. Since
the fighting ended, the number or
soldiers overseas has been so re-
duced and the movement of units
has lessened so much that postot-
fice department officials and army
postal officers decided this year's
gift mailing period could :be set
back a month.
Emphasizing that families this
year know exactly where on the
world's map their soldier-relative
is stationed, postal officers urge
the use of judgment in mailing
dates, pointing out that delivery
takes longer to Korea than it does
Oregon is derived from the In-
dian word: meaning place of plenty.
