Avers Measure Introduced By Sen-
ator Gray Would Not Be
In talking with Represenative
George Tapper last Saturday, the
Editor of The Star found him vig-
orously opposed. to the bill intro-
'duced by Senator Carl Gray of Bay
county which would create a new
senatorial district embracing Gulf,
Calhoun and Washington counties
and to be know as District 40.
"Senator Gray had informed me
that his bill would -place, Washing-
ton and Bay counties in the pres-
ent 25,th District and create a new
40thl District made up of Calhoun
and Gulf counties," said Tapper,
"but when the bill came up Thurs-
day it placed Gulf, Calhoun and
Washington in District 40 and left
Bay county alone in the 25th Dis-
trict. Such a setup is geographic-
ally unsound and, the house will
kill '.the bill."
I- George said he. and Representa-
'tiyesl C. L. Clark of Calhoun and
Joe Potter of Washington county
were opposed to the measure. "All
of us are in favor of a redistricting
bill," he' said, "tbut not one which

with Carol Warner who, when lie
started out to get his bobcat fin-
is-hed the job.
:S.-ems that Carol. "Red" Morri-
son and Norman Allemore, in one
boat, and Mr. a.nd Mrs. John. Rob-
ert Smith in another, both powered
by 23 h.p Johnsons for which Carol
is the local dealer (free advt.),
were traveling up the canal Sunday
to Lake Wimico when. they saw a
large bobcat swimming across the
canal. Warner slowed' down his
boat and struck at the critter,-with
a paddle, whereupon Mr., Bobcat,
figuring he was at a disadvantage
in the' water-,, proceeded to climb
'into the boat.
Warner socked Mr. Bob with the
-paddle, which broke off short, and
the cat got under the seat on whnic
he was sitting and proceeded to
spit and snarl, make rapid passes
at Carol with. a handful of sharp-
scimitar-shaped claws, and raise
hades in general. After about 20
minutes of this, Carol finally dis-
patched the unwelcome guest with
'a lusty blow to the cranium with
'the bit of paddle remaining to him.
As an interesting sidelight to
the fracas, Norman Allemorie was
yelping to Warner and Morrison to
ablan.don ship and leave Mr. Bob in
sole command, but Morrison put a
headlock on Norman and' kept him
from, jumping into the drink.

turn game with Army at Tyndall
Field, but from what we hear it
was replete with errors, by both
teams, the Saintsi finally coming
out on the long end dof a 11-10 score
after 11 hectic inf.ings.
Terry Hinote started on, the
mound for St. Joe and' was re-
lieved' in the second by Jimmy
Adams; Lamar: Sales was' on the
receiving end all the way due to
the fact that Bert Cox was.s nursing
an injured finger (Cox played In
the outfield the last four innings.).
The score was 9-9 at the -begin-
ning of the eleventh, when W. J.
Herring tripled to drive in Cox and
Jim' McCall and -cinch the game.
Army tried valiantly, to beat the
rap, shoving, over one counter, but
a spectacular catch, by Tommy
Mitchell at third quashed the rally,

BOYLES "Tips From Across Our

Port St. Joe, Florida Shoppers"
Vol. 1 Friday, May 9, 1947 No. 41
This Issue of "The Tattler" Dedicated to All Mothers
It appears as though we shall have to brush up this column
since Editor Bill is Stardusting and Moonshining again. How-
ever, it would, be assumption for us to hope to compete with this
veteran (we didn't say OLD, either) newspaper man! We note
in his production the school boy enthusiasm which sometimes
comes from the smell of good. steaks, pies, and pastries, so we're
giving Mirs. ,Smith credit for all that might be considered good in
the Stardust column. That leaves you out in the, cold, editor!
It's hardly necessary to mention that next SundJay is MOTHER'S
DAY. Feel'sure we've all been thinking about it for !some time.u
Boyles, Department Store has, been planning, for months to help
out in giving mothers a thrill on this wonderful day. We'1 wrap
you a bundle, of joy for Mother in a neat, attractive package just
for 0he asking. Select from the items advertised' in this space
and, you'll be sure to please her.
Wish we could command words from our limited vocabulary to
*write a fitting, article onl MOTHER. The first thing the, word
brings. to our mind is, LOVE. Mothers simply generate that LOVE
.that passeth understanding, and things we do not understand are
difficult to write about. However, we are everlastingly grateful
'to iave kiiown th joy; .peace and security of a MOTHER'S LOVE.
We are more grateful to have this blessing today. Yes, we knew
a mother of seven who seemed, to have the power of loving
seventy times seven. That love became more tender as ,the years
produced movie, suffering, hardships and heartaches, along with
the absence of material necessities of life. We've seen he.r,
through the yars, sick, discouraged', tii'ed, and weary in body,
possessed, with a soul that constantly increased' in buoyancy and
power. No, we cannot explain a mother's love, but we do know
what it will do. We know how.
know that it grips the hearts of
men and of nations. We know
that it will change the aesttny
of men and nations. We know
that it extends to the uttermost
parts of the earth. We know
that it will last through ete'rn-
ity. Yes, we would, like to write,
a fitting article on MOTHER,
but we can only pause with pro-
found humility and respect at
the sound of the worid. This
column pays its respects to all
mothers, and we might men-
tion the fact that Mrs. Elmore
Godifrey (formerly Mis's Betty
Temple) is the newest mother
in 'this city at the time this ar-
ticle .is written. We saw Pop El-
more bouncing around last eve-
ning and, it must have been ove,

Our Country Right or Wrong
LIVING STANDARDS MAY DROP
The high wages being paid workers today
are good to look at, and if the wage increases
were all that is involved, it would'be fine, but.
it isn't, for every time wages are boosted they
add height to the trade barriers existing be-
tween this country and others whose peoples
need the products of America.
The higher the wages go here the more dif-
ficult it becomes to export the things manu-
factured in our factories, which must compete
with the goods made in other countries where
wages and living standards are much lower.
It is inevitable that the day will come when
manufacturers in other nations will begin
sending their products into the world market,
and that will be the day of reckoning, for the
. American manufacturers must dispose of the
surplus, of their products over and above the
needs of the home market. Advantageous dis-
posal of that surplus is the thing that will
keep the plants operating and the workers on
the job. If world market conditions should bar
export of the surplus, it would force the Am-
erican people upon a self-containment stan-
dard of living, which would mean a sharp re-
duction from our present high,level.
A SMALL BOY'S ESSAY ON NEWSPAPERS
The following, said to be a small boy's es-
say, has been going the rounds and has ap-
peared recently in a number of publications.
It is thought to have been first published by.
the Belleville (Kans.) Telescope: A
"I don't know how newspapers got into the
" world and I don't think God does, for He
never mentioned them in the Bible. Maybe the
editor was one of the Fallen Angels, for he
seems to fall for about everything that people
tell him. If the editor makes a mistake, folks
say he ought to be hung; if a lawyer makes
a mistake, he appeals the case; when a doctor
makes a mistake they say nothing 'cause they
don't know Latin, and they couldn't read his
writing if they did.
"An editor makes a mistake and there's a
lot of hollering, cussing and a libel suit, while
when a doctor makes one there's a funeral,
with flowers and. crying and perfect silence.
A doctor can use a word a mile long, and it
doesn't make any difference if he knows what
it means or not, for folks will think he's edu-
cated, while an editor has to spell any word he
uses. If a doctor goes to see another man's
wife he charges for the visit, while if the ed-
itor goes he gets shot.
"People that call the doctor and get well
think he's a great man; if they don't get well
they're dead and can't say anything. Two-
thirds of the folks in town are sore at the
editor all the time, either because the paper
said something about them they don't like or
said something nice about somebody they
Perhaps it is called "honeymoon" because
sooner or later somebody gets stung.-Lake

'RECESSION' OR 'DEPRESSION'?
When, a year or so ago, a few doubting
Thomases gloomily intimated that the post-
war production boom might not last indefi-
nitely, they were greeted with angry opposi-
tion on all sides. Some of the government
economists were especially vigorous in argu-
ing 'that nothing even resembling a "reces-
sion" could be forecast, and that production
would go on to new high plateau after new
This, reasoning was based on the tremenGous
total of war savings in the possession of the
people, and on the undeniable fact that prac-
tically everyone needed a long list of goods,
ranging from clothes to homes, which had
been unobtainable for years. It was further
buttressed by the assumption that, after the
backlog of orders had been made up, the Am-
erican people would be accustomed to a higher
standard of living and would continue buying
in hitherto unprecedented amounts in order to
That pleasant, viewpoint has taken quite a
walloping lately. Even the government econ-
omists-with certain exceptions whose opti-
mismn, to judge by their public statements, re-
mains undim' m-: .--are talking cautiously of a
"corrective" down-turn in production. And
some experts are so certain that a recession
is on the way that they have stopped consider,
ing whether .it will or will not occur, and are
guessing as to when it will come and how se-
vere it will be.
The reasons for this attitude are easy
enough to find. First, there has been a con-
siderable decline in savings, because people
have spent the money, wisely or otherwise,
for non-durable goods, for luxuries, and for
just,plain living. Second, the saving held by
the average family were never large enough,
even had they been held. intact, to buy very
muc-h. Third, a large segment. of the public,
whether it is right or wrong, thinks that prices
are too high and is buying as little as possible.
Fourth, there is a distinct possibility of more
big-time labor disputes. Fifth, in many lines
the production of goods at the factory is much
greater than the sale of goods at retail-which
means that inventories are piling up, and that
distributors will pare their purchases. Sixth,
increases of income on the part of niost white-
collar groups have been less than the increases
in the cost of living-which simply means that
their real purchasing power is less than it used
to be, even though they get more dollars ealh
Both government and business are afraid of
sharp drops in production, which would in-
evitably be followed by widespread unem-
ployment, distress selling, and severe and un-
economic breaks in the price structure. This
is the pattern that has always resulted in the
severe depressions of the past. Very few
economists say that this will necessarily hap-
pen in the foreseeable future. But almost all
of the forecasters are much less bullish than
they once were.
The general consensus is that some kind of
an industrial slump will occur either this fall
or -Ainter, or next spring. Those are the most
commonly mentioned dates, but the forecasters
are hedged with "ifs" and butss."
