Large Number of Unknown Cases
of Syphilis Are Discovered
Through 'Blood Tests
,Success .of Florida's year-old pre-
marital law is indicated 'by figures
released from the state board of
health's bureau of preventable dis-
eases. The figures show that a
large number of unknown cases or
syphilis were discovered through
blood tests which a couple desir-
ing to marry in Florida must have
under the premarital law.
It was pointed out that-although
marriages in the stat'have dropped
since the law became effective,
this was expected because a neigh-
boring state does not have a law.
However, it is also expected that
in two or three years, marriages
in the state will go back to normal.
Dr. R. F. Soidag, director of the
bureau, emphasized a ga in that
some of the main objectives of rue
law are to prevent an individual
with syphilis from infecting the
marital partner; to prevent the oc.
currency of so called hereditary
or congenital syphilis, and to un-
cover eases of syphilis so that
proper treatment can be given.
Four health board laboratories
handled a total of 40,378 remarital
blood dtestsi during the first year
period from October 1, 1945, thru
September this yeai".
Positive blood tests were higher
among men than. women, and much
higher among colored persons, ac-
cording to the report. A positive
blood test, it was pointed out, does
not necessarily mean that the in-
dividual is in a communicable
stage of syphilis. This disease is
not usually infectious, to the mari-
tal partner after four or five years
duration, even though treatment'
has not been, given.
This is true except when the
person is a woman. It is more inm-
portant for a woman to have a
blood test as a measure of protec-
tiion, because if syphilis is dis-
covered and treated in women,
their children will be protected
against congenital syphilis, Dr.
Sontag stressed. .
A total of 33,580 prenatal blood
tests were gone by the state board
of health laboratories in the first
year period. More than 4 per cent

Protection From Fire Pays Dividends In Wood Volume I
Six times as much wood comes from small longleaf saplings, protected
from forest Mi'.es as those burned annually. The two tree sections
shown above are, from natfiral lougleof pine saplings. At the start of
the test the two saplings were five and a half feet tall. Eight years
later the tree represented by the left section above, had grown 21
additional feet in height and measured four inches in, diameter. This
tree was protected from forest fires for eight years. The section at
the right came from a tree which was on an'area burned annually for
eight years. It had srown only seven additional feet and' measured
two inches i 'liiimetpr. For 'st fire protection pays dividends in wood

Our Country .-. Right or Wrong
NOT MUCH WE CAN DO ABOUT IT
Ray Adams, salesman for the Capital Paper
Company of Tallahassee, on his regular bi-
monthly call last week, handed the publisher
of The Star a revised price list (upward, of
course) on all types of paper and, naturally,
we will be compelled to pass along the increase
to our customers, as any other merchandising
establishment might do.
All manufacturers (and printing is classed
as manufacturing) today are adding to the
cost of what they produce the unavoidable
increased expenses resulting from inflated la-
bor, material and tax costs. And so the con-
sumer, whether he be buying a job of print-
ing, a suit of clothes, a bedroom suite, food-
stuffs, or anything else, before he goes off
the handle at the sight of higher prices, should
understand just what is going on.
The price of some articles now on the mar-
ket may seem unreasonably high when com-
pared with the prices set by the OPA. But we
should also remember that under OPA con-
trol these same articles did not even appear
on the market, simply because the manufac-
turers couldn't afford to make them and- sell
them at prices set by OPA.
In the .agricultural field, the elimination of
subsidies has automatically raised prices to
the consumer. The buyer, in other words, is
now paying the whole cost of what he gets,
rather than having the taxpayers pay some of
it for him. And the farmer, too, must pass on
increased labor and supply costs.
Naturally we don't want any of our estab-
lished stores here in Port St. Joe to be forced
out of business, because we know the owners
and they are our friends, so, on the retail
level the position of the stores should be clear,
and we should not be inclinel to shortsight-
edly "take it out on the merchant." Any store
here in Port St. Joe must pay the going whole-
sale price for what it buys, then add the cost
of operation and a profit to establish the price
to the consumer. The only other course would
be swift and certain bankruptcy.
Eventually, as production rises and as pres-
ent confused conditions clear, a stable price
level based on the realities of current costs
will gradually be reached. We, as individuals,
can aid greatly in bringing that much-to-be-
desired level about by buying only what we
need when we need it and putting our surplus
money in government savings bonds or de-
positing it in a savings account, forgeoing
those things we think we simply must have
but in reality can do without.
TOO MUCH SPARE TIME?
President Robert M. Hutchins of the Uni-
versity of Chicago wonders whether if we
aren't killed by atomic warfare we shall not
die of boredom in an area of atomic peace. He
puts his finger on something that has been
vaguely worrying plenty of people since it
was first announced that it was possible to
release the energy wrapped up in the atom.
Suppose-that this energy could be harnessed
solely for peaceful purposes. An industrial and'
social revolution the like of which the world
has never seen might ensue. The 30-hour
week might be easy. With atoms applying
power, perhaps a 10-hour week would be
Assuming that the benefits of such an in-
crease of wealth were evenly spread, and man-
ifested themselves ip less need to be busy with
the world's work, would people be able to put
in the extra time at play?
The realist sees limits to the amount of time
that can be spent in contentment without
-serious and constructive work.
On the principle that Satan finds work for
idle hands, one is almost driven to fear that
mankind might break out into wars just to re-
lieve the monotony.-Philadelphia Bulletin.
We managed to pick up a copy of Holiday
magazine over at Smith's Pharmacy and read
the 46 pages devoted to "Florida, the Gorgeous
Hussy." We were somewhat disappointed, as
the articles were devoted strictly to the east
coast, P'alm Beach, Miami, Hialeah and St.
Augustine, but we were somewhat cheered by
a footnote saying: "We owe some apology to
the west coast of Florida. The only reason it
is omitted is that it deserves a whole section
to itself, a full treatment which Holiday will
give in a future issue." Naturally, since Port
St. Joe is really where the state of Florida be-
gan, with the constitutional convention, we
can anticipate our little city being included in
that "future issue" article.
Man will find means to surmount the
atomic peril, says a hopeful publicist-but we
wonder. Did building a better mousetrap
evolve a better mouse?
Medical science has offered proof positive
that it is possible to bleed to death without
suffering pain. That should be a crumb of
comfort to us poor taxpayers. *

LEAGUE TOLD CITIES NEED
BIGGER SLICE OF TAX FUNDS
Florida's cities were described
as "orphans of the state" by City
Manager George Roark of Pensa-
Dola. s-peaking Monday before the
Florida League or Municipalities
convention at Miami Beach.
Roark said that cities are en-
titled to a real division of every
dollar "'because they are the main
sources of the tax income. They
need a reasonable part of the gaso-'
line tax we pay in our. cities; all
the cigaret tax we pay locally;
some of the liquor tax, and some
relief from homestead exemption.'
City Clerk M. P. Tomlinson at-
tended the convention as a repre-
sentative of the city of Port St.
NEW TAX EXEMPTION
MEASURE IS PROPOSED
The 1947 legislature will receive
a bill proposing that widows, vet-
erans and disabled persons 'be freed
of having to submit separate city
and county tax exemption applica-
tions. The measure is the project
of Dade County Tax Assessor J. N.
JUSTICE BROWN QUITS POST
Justice Armstead Brown resigned

court to enter retirement a month

December 1. Brown's term would
have expired January 7. More than
