Scroll Is Given Mrs. Lucile Raybon
'Aunt Sally' As Dies At Home Here

'MOi- Mrs. Lucile Raybon, 64, died at
Oldest M other. her residence, 509 Eighth Street,
____ Thursday evening of last week. She
,Presentation Is Made To Mrs.' was born in Apalachicola and had
Montgomery On Mother's Day been a resident of Port St. Jo...for
By Representative Tapper 'the past three years.
Mrs. Raybon is 'survived by two
Mrs. Sally Montgomery, 82, affec.- daughters, Mrs. Euphamia Roberts
tionately known by all as "Aunt and Mrs. Evelyn Lucile Raybon,
-Au .- Tn-I, ~n ,j ni, l )f


Sally," was signally honored on
Mother's Day when she was pre-
sented' with a scroll, by Represen-
tative George Tapper as being the
oldest mother in Port St. Joe.
The scroll, in the form of a reso-
lution passed by the house of rep-
resentatives o2 the state legisla-
,ture, reads: "A Resolution affec-
tionately dedicated to there mothers
of our state and nation and. rever-
e' itly commemorating the state of
motherhood.
"Whereas, the highest idealism
and the most noble principles of
life are found in the sacrifices, pri-
avations, sufferings and devotions-
ofi the mothers. of men, and-
"Whereas, all the problems of
life and the difficulties and, trials
of legislation, however important
they may appear to be to society
and the body politic, pale into in-
:.significance. in comparison with
the depth of gratitude owed by.
each member of .the house to his
mother, and
"Whereas, Sunday, May 11th,
1947, is Mother's Day, on which
homage is paid to the motherhood
of'our nation: now therefore
"Be. It Resolved, that the mem-
be.oi lun-.-hose 'y rep, resntarivEs
*do hereby express to the mothers
of men, on behalf of the citizenship
o.t our state, an undying gratitude
for our life-, our devotion, and our
affection for- each of them, and
"Be It Further Resolved, that
this house do now stand in token
of our love and respect ror the
mothers of the nation, and as an
expression of the fact that they
will never forget the mother who
gave them the greatest things
that have been their lot in life."
Each member of the house re-
ceived two of the. scrolls, one for
his' mother and one for his wife,
but since George is a bachelor, he
gave one to his mother, Mrs. Rob-
ert Tapper, and the. other to Aunt
Sally.

Saints Take League



Lead With Two Wins


Over Apalachicola


Sunday's Game
From the looks of the grandstand
Sunday, practically the entire popu-
lation of Apalackicola was in Port
St. Joe to see the Oystermen, with
their hired battery, take the Saints
to the cleaners, but it was a sub-
dued bunch of ,dans 'that filed out
of the park after the heavy-hitting"
Saints, behind the lurlingt of Lefty
Thomasbn chalked up eight runs
to the Oystermen's one.
After holding the visitors score-
less' in the first inning, Herring
led off with a twobagger, followed
by a nice bingle by Hannon to
drive "Fish" home. Mitchell was
out. at first, as was Belin, with
Hannon advancing to third, and
Cox popping out to retire the side.
Neither team, scored in the. sec-
ond or third (in fact Apalach didn't
score at all until the eighth), but
in the fourth the Saints had their
big inning, chalking, up five- count-
ers Weeks was the lead-off man,
but was out at first. Bucky Wal-
ters, who was in -the lineup at sec-
ond base due to the fact that Al-
ton Dendy 'was: injured in the game
with Army, was walked, and Mc-
Call hit a liner through .short for a
safety, Thomason' was out on a
foul to left field', and Herring got
on base when the 'shortstop fum-
bled, loading the .bags. Hannon hit
a hot one over second' to drive in
Walters asd McCall, Mitchell got
a safety to bring in Herring, and
Belin poled out a mighty one that
bounced off the left field fence,
H-annon and Mitch coming home.
Cox retired the side with a long
fly to center.
The other two scores,' for tme
Saints came in the sixth, Thomasoh
getting a safety, Herring flied out
to right field, Hannon got on with
a Texas leaguer, Mitchell sacrific-
ing to advance Thomason and Han-
non, and Be.lin being purposely
walked by the pitcher in order to
get at Cox. who had been popping
high ones regularly for outs. But
Cox fooled 'em, knocking a hot one
:'ver second to bring in Thomason
and' Hannon and put Belin dn third.
Weeks was out at first to retire
thl. side.
Apalachicola made their lone
counter in the eighth with three
line drives down the third base
line.

day afternoon on the bay and. in

The quartet brought back five
large jack cravalia weighing from

niost being pulled overboard by a
goodsized' fish.


Wednesday's Game
Playing against a 10-man team
(we include Umpire Mayor Bill
Owesns in the lineup) the Port St.
Joe Saints scored a second win
over Apalachicola at that city Wed-
nesday to definitely take top posi-
tion in the Gulf Coast League (at
least for the time being).
The Saints, started off in fine
style., chalking.up four runs in the
first inning. Herring was hit on
the ankle by Hendels with the first
ball for a walk; Hannon struck out
on an attempted sacrifice; Mitchell
and Belin got safeties to load' the
bases, and Cox drove in Herring
with a hit to short, the play be-
ing made at first, Cox beating the
throw by a step. Mitchell and Be-
lin came home on two wild, pitches

hit.
St. Joe made it 5-1 in the second
when Herring got on base on an
error, Hannon's infield fly was
caught, Mitchell made two bags on
a hit and an error, and Herring
crossed, the plate on an infield hit
by Belin, who was caught at first.
Th.b Saints failed to score in the
next three innings, but Apalachi-
cola tied the score with two runs

Cheap Water Offered
Gardeners By City

As is customary every year, the
city water department is 'putting
into effect a special summer rate
for consumers' in order to encour-
age and assist them in 'beautifying
home grounds and promoting vege-
table gardens during the. diry sum-
mer months.
Ordinarily the city has notices
printed and mailed' out with the
water bills notifying users of this
special rate, but due to the fact
that the city treasury is exceeding
low this year the city is depending
on this notice in the old reliable
Star to inform water users of the
reduced rate.
If more. of you people had paid
your garbage tax, The, Star would
have received that $3.50 printing
job instead of giving a free notice.

Has Guests From Tallahassee
Mrs. Mel Magidson had as her
guests at Beacon Hill last week-
end the Misses Sara Griffin and
Alice Detman, students at F. S. O.
W., Tallahiassee.

DOLLAR DAYS EDITION!


DEAR SHOPPERS:
Neighbors are one of the
blessings of life., and we are
particularly grateful for one of
ours. Mrs. Ned Porter planted a
rose bush which is directly in
front of u's when we are sitting
at the table in the dining room.
Its a small bush, 'but meticulous
care has produced a prosperous
and thrifty plant that is now in
full bloom. We cannot look out
without seeing these gorgeous
red' roses that seem to speak to
us. of the beautiful things of
life. Yes, we. are grateful for
neighbors and i'oses.
Now, we feel that it Is neces-
sary to remind you of the power
of your DOLLAR at Boyles De-
partment Store. DOLLAR DAYS
are hsre again and we have
been planning to make your ,oi-
lars stretch like bubble gum
(maybe we better not pop 'em).
This will be the greatest Dol-
lar Days Event we've ever had,
for merchandise is more plenti-
ful and a greater variety of sen-
sational values are waiting for
you. You will note in this adver-
tisement savings ranging from
12% to 75%. Some will ask how
we do it others will blink
their eyes in amazement. Dear
customers, you have made th'.s
possible you should re-
ceive the benefit. You have.
given u's a liberal business that
makes it possible for us to op-


rate on short profit and quick-
turnover we sell for CASH
credit losses are, elimi-
*nated overhead expenses
are low we do not pay ex-
cessive rent, for the firm owns
the building. Add it all up
.it's easy to figure -
the sum total is substantial sav-
ings to you. Does that make
sense.? We think so!
We've promised ourselves to
cut this colu'.in down this week
in order to give you as muQh in-
formation on DOLLAR DAYS as
possible. We've heard that
"talk's cheap," ibut Editor Smith
doesn't think so according to
the statement we received tho
first of the month. However, it's
difficult to get to a stopping
place when one has thousands
of dollars worth of merchandise
and every item clamoring for a
word, Wish we could get it all
in, but it can't be done. .
Yes, it can be done, but it will
take more time and money to
do it. (Editor, don't charge us
for -that word "can't" that some-
how slipped by us .. it doesn't
belong in this, column). (We
were going to comment on this,
but as Glenn can't afford It, you
will find said comment in Star-
dust .and Moonshine.-Ed.)
Yours for the BEST
DOLLAR DAYS ever,
R. GLENN BOYLES.

Our Country '-.C"" Right or Wrong

TRADING AT HOME
There aie any number of people living in
Port St. Joe who laugh at the idea that it is
best to buy at home. They take the position
that it does not matter where'they spend their
money if they get their money's worth. They
subscribe to the doctrine that the only obliga-.
tion they owe the town is to get what they
can out of it.
Our ideas of trading at home do not include
buying goods from' merchants who attempt
.exorbitant profits. It does not necessitate the
acceptance of worn, dirty or bedraggled goo.4s
from old-time merchants who think that it is
-up to the community to keep them in business.
It only means' giving to the local merchant a
chance and then to buy if he can reasonably
meet other competition.
'The local merchants, on their side, have
'duties in regard to this trade at home idea.
They must keep the buyer informed as to
-what they have to sell. They must stock new
goods. They must be accommodating and
render real service to the purchaser. ~.They
must refuse to push shoddy goods or to sell
to a customer something that is apt to be uin-
profitable. In short, they must maintain at all"
times the confidence of the community.
The average citizen should, we take it, have
-pleastire in increasing the total volume of lo-
cal business. Out of this sum is taken the pros-
perity of all of us. The larger it is, the bigger
the average share. Every citizen that spends
this dollars here in Port St. Joe helps that
-much in making the business of the commun-
-ity bigger. Fle helps the town expand, put on
-new growth and support new enterprises.

A California judge rules he has no jurisdic-
tion over Mexican marriages. This follows the
old United States principle of non-interference
in guerilla warfare.

With "collar wilting" weather just around
,the corner, it will be advisable to sit in the
:shade, enjoy the breezes and stay out of
arguments.


STARDUST and

MOONSHINE


,Back there on page three, Glenn
Boyles, in his "Tattler" column, is
remarking about the size of the bill
he received from The Star on the
first of the month for his advertis-
ing. He's. always' yipping about his
bill, but you'll notice he keeps on
taking more and more space each
month, so he's found that "adver-
tising gets re-sults" if it's kept up
continuously and not run spasmod-
ically. From the comments
we've heard, people really go for
his "Tattler" column, and we were
shocked and horrified one day when
one -%oman told us she usde to read
Stardust first thing, but now she
turns to ,page three first to read
Glenn's outpouring. Seems
lie made some kind mention of-her
one time and she's hopeful to find
li,.r name in his column again. .


IT'S ALL OF A LIFETIME JOB
One of the principal recommendations for a
public school education is its socialized value.
As used here, the term "socialized" is intended
to mean the advantages which accrue to peo-
ple from "rubbing elbows" together. That is
the American way of doing things, as was
demonstrated in the last great war this coun-
try fought. The rich took their place side by
side with the poor to do battle with a common
enemy.
Initially, the South was the.most undemo-
cratic section of the country so far as educa-
tion was concerned. The nature of conditions
in the agricultural South made it virtually im-
possible to practice education on the socialized
level for several generations. Rich plantation
owners gave their children private tutors, but
until the time when public schools came along,
the less affluent had to acquire their learning
as best they could.
Under. the modern public school education,
the children from across the railroad tracks
rub elbows with the youngsters who come
from the mansions that sit up on the hill. And
the result is that both are better rounded in-
dividuals for having had the experience. The
public school education follows the normal
scheme of things in the United States, for peo-
ple simply have to learn .to get along with
one another if they wish to make a success of
life in this country.
Now that Florida is about to have co-educa-
tion in its colleges, it is well to regard the new
system from this viewpoint of socialization of
education. It will afford young men and wo-
men an opportunity of becoming adjusted to
one another at the most impressionable age
in their lives. Co-education will round out the
angularities of more boys and girls, no doubt,
than can be easily imagined. By attending
classes together and participating in the same
school activities, the shy boy will begin to drop
his timidity and the demure girl will see a
fuller meaning in life.
Co-education will offer its problems, too,
not the least of which will be persuading the
young men and women to keep their minds
on the subject at hand rather than on their
classroom neighbor.
All in all, it must be admitted 'that most of
the advantages of co-education are on thd side
of the males. It's a lifetime business-this
proposition of trying to understand the com-
plexities of a woman's mind and. nature-and
a fellow just simply can't start learning how
too soon in life.-Florida Times-Union.

Day by day in every way we are confirmed
in the theory that, if we ever get into trouble,
the last place we will seek assistance is the
United Nations council.

Lots of things happen every day, but human
beings are responsible for a big share of them.

A. Shell color has no bearing on

Defendant Acquitted In
First Woods Fire Case
Tried By Forest Service
Woodrow Lolley, 35, former trac-
tor operator for the International
Paper Company of Panama City,
was acquitted by a circuit court
jury at Blountstown Wednesday of
last wesk of charges that he con-
spired with three relatives to set
more than 40 woods fires in the
south section of Calhoun county
last December 8.
The charge resulted from war-
rants filed by the Florida Forest
and Park Service, and was the first
woods- fire conspiracy case to be
prosecuted by the agency's new in-
vestigative branch.
The blazes were among approxi-
mately a00 that broke out in the
vicinity of Kinard and Broadbranch
in a thre-.e-day period, burning some
1300 acres of timberland. and caus-
ing about $13,000 worth of damage
before being extinguished by for-
est service and paper company
pEirsonnel.
The accused, only witness called
by the defense, denied all changes
and said he "didian't have anything
to do with it," and indicated he
felt his relatives and other wit-
nesses were trying to ",irame" him.
Owners of the burned land are
the International Paper Company,
&781/2 acres; Hunt Oil Company,
825 acres, and Kenney Land Com-
pany, 81/2 acres.
The court was presided over by
Judge Ira A. Hutchinson of Pan-
ama City. The case was prosecuted
by E. Clay Lewis Jr., of this city,
assistant state attorney, while the
defendant was represented by H.
V. 'McClelland, of Blountstown.

MILLER'S DRUG STORE


Look out! There's another big rail-
road wage demandheadedyourway!
The non-operating unions alone
-whose members do not actually
operate trains-are demanding a
flat increase of 20 cents an hour.
These demands would cost the rail-
roads of the country five hundred
sixty-eight million dollars a year!
Last year these employes had
an increase of 18% cents an
hour. This was their third major
wage increase since 1939. Their
average weekly pay has gone up
75%, as against a cost-of-living
rise of 54%.
Since 1939, railroad wage and
material costs have gone up more
than three times as much as freight
rates, and five times as much as
passenger fares. That is why in


1946, with the largest peacetime
traffic in history, the net income of
railroads went down to the equiva-
lent of only 2%% of the net prop-
erty investment.

What About 1947?
Even with the recent freight rate
increase, preliminary figures indi-
cate that the railroads will make
only about the same low return in
1947 as in 1946. This will be because:
-the wage increase made in 1946
will be in effect for all of 1947;


-special payroll taxes on railroads
have recently been increased;,
-and passenger traffic has declined.

Where Would the Monej
Come From?
We can't pay out what we don't take
in. And we are not taking in enough
now to meet present costs and to
complete the improvements in serv-
ice that you need and that we want to
give you.


You Would Foot the Bill!


We are publishing this and other advertisements to talk with you
at first hand about matters which are important to everybody.
