tioning about the middle of Sep
tember, barring strikes.
The Layne iron removal unit to
be used in the water filtering plant
is a three-compartment tank in
which the water from the city's
wells will be treated, under pres-
sure and without exposure, for the
removal of its iron content at the
rate of 300 gallons per minute, or a
total of better than 400,000 gallons
in a. 24,haur day.
The -unit is equipped with spe-
,cially 'built air compressors thai
'provide filtered air free from oil or
impurities under control and ap-
plied in a regulated stream just
sufficient for use of the unit. Con-
trol of the air results in an oxygen
content .of the water following
treatment of not more than 50 per
cent saturation., and an effluent
less a'ggi'es give in character than
the applied raw water.
The unit will be 10 feet in di-
ameter and about 16 feet high, con-
structed of %-inch steel side walls
and %--inch head. Total weight will
tbe about 17,000 pounds.
The upper portion of this large
cylinder is .the areation chamn'be
and contains a layer of Montana
lava 48 inches deep. The raw water
enters. the top of the cylinder and
compressed air is forced up from
below, the air oxidizing the iron in
the water is it flows over the lava.
After the water passes through
the top unit, it enters, a filter in
the lower section, which is made
uip of'a 50-50 mixture of Cape May
sand, and calcite which contains
about 98 per cent pure calcium car-
bonate. Facilities are provided for
washing the lava and the filter unit
to remove the collected, iron oxide,
this operation being necessary ap-
proximately every three days. No
chlorine is used in the plant at all.

Commissioner Sharit Turns
Thumbs Down On Propo-
sition As Submitted
At a meeting of the board of city
comnrissioners held, Wednesday af-
ternoon at the city hall with rep-
resentatives of the Thornton Mohr
Company of Montgomery, Ala., and
Stu'lbbs', Smith and Lomibardo of
Birmingham, investment bankers,
called to discuss the matter of re-
,financing the city's bonded indebt-
edness, no action was taken due to
t the fact that precedent on such
matters calls for a unanimous vote
of the board', and' Commissioner Joe
o Sharit was opposed to refunding at
the present time and Commssioner
J. R. Chestnut was out of town.
The plan as submitted by the
banking house representatives was
set urp to cut down interest charges
from 41/ to 31/2% oh the water and
- sewer bonds and to 2%% on the
a dredging bonds and allowing a
longer period in which to pay off
the water and sewer' revenue deben-
It was pointed' out ,by Lomrbardo
that under the refinancing plan
the present 7. mills assessed for
paying off the dredging bonds
could be cut right away'to 6 mills,
and later lowered again as the
bonds were tak up, since the
new issue- would' be callable at any
time while the present .bonds are
-In regard to the water and sewer
bonds, Lonmbardo stated that the
present situation is very bad, 'since
$225,000 was borrowed in 1937 for
the water and! sewer system and
that today, with delinquent inter-
est, the city still owes in the
neighborhood of $210,000. and if it
should so happen that the bonds
changed, hands (the duPont inter-
ests hold the present bonds) the
city-might be in a bad way.
After some two hours devoted to
presentation of the plan and dis-
cus'sion of the various ramifica-
tions. Mayor Soule, after-stating
that in his opinion there wduld be
a considerable saving to the city
over a period of years on the lower

On Tuesday, September 2, the
voters of Port St. Joe will trek to

four city commissioners- and a
mayor under the new city charter
'promulgated by the Junior Cham-

the recent legislative session.

As of Wednesday, B. B. Conklin
was the only candidate to file for
the commission race, he having

A poll of other mem-bers of the.
commission as to whether or not
they would seek ,re-election brought
the following results:
'Horace Soule: "I haven't made
up my mind one way or the other."
J. L. Sharit: "You may quote me
as saying that I haven't fully made
up my mind."
Mrs. R. R. Minus: "I definitely
will not seek rie-election. While I
feel I have served the people well,
and quite a number have asked me
to run for re-election, I am in busi-
ness now and would not have the,
time to devote to city affairs and
give them the proper attention."

S..STILL SEARCHING FOR THE CURE
Not long ago tuberculosis victims all over
the world seized upon word of the new drug,
streptomycin, believing that a quick end to
their illness was at hand.
But streptomycin is not a "cure-all" for tu-
berculosis. A few have been made well, but
thousands upon thousands have been disap-
pointed in their hopes for a quick cure. The
"miracle drug," streptomycin, does not sub-
stitute for a single present form of tuberculo-
sis treatment. Reason for this is that strepto-
mycin is helpful in only a few of the many
linds of tuberculosis, and often, even in these
kinds, helpful to only a limited extent.
Thie notable exceptions in which streptomy-
cin has fulfilled its early expectations are mili-
ary tuberculosis and tuberculosis meningitis, \
the most important causes of tuberculosis
in children. These two forms, usually 100 per
cent fatal, have been checked in almost half
the cases where streptomycin was used.
However, these two types are relatively
rare. The great majority of cases are pulmo-
nary, or lung, tuberculosis, and streptomycin
does not cure these people. It helps stop the
spread of the disease in the lungs, but.only
temporarily; it can be used to check the wild-
fire spread of the TB gerins following chest
surgery, but in a few .months the germs be-
come resistant to streptomycin and the drug
is no1 longer of use. --....
Today throughout the United States experi-
nments are being .carried forward with strep-
tomycin. Scientists'and doctors are trying des-
perately to change or adapt it so that it will
lead the way to a quick and permanent cure
for tuberculosis, a contagious disease which
kills tens of thousands annually.
But the "cure" has not yet been found.
Nobody would mind so much why girls leave
home if only they would inake an effort to get
back a little earlier.
Travel broadens .some, and some can't con-
trol their appetite.
The Low Down
Editor The Star:
When I wuz in your city recent-
like, I run into my friend S. L.
Barke--S. L., you know, sorta helps
run a ibank-and he sez to me.
Josephus, he sez, you believe in
private enterprise and you scribble
on same kinda frequent, why not
tell the folks how the private en-
terprise system and the "profit an'
loss" sys'teenf'is the same? They
ain't nothing' free .about free enter-
prise, he sez, 'cept the right to try
your skill at something' you think
you kin make a go of-and if you
wanta 'work a leetle harder, you
gotta chance to profit, also you
gotta chance to lose. Bear down
kinda heavy on that, he sez, that
you gobta chance to lose.
I also went around and visited a

PROBABLY NO LEAGUE NEXT YEAR
It seems to be the general opinion that when
.attempts are made next year to organize a
Gulf Coast B.aseball League that there will be
little or no interest taken in it due to the fact
that some teams in the present organization
have resorted to hiring players from outside,
one in particular having secured the services
of some eight college players.
Of course we don't have to come right :-'t
and say to whom we are referring, for every-
one knows. What we can't understand is what
pleasure supporting fans get out of watching
a bunch of hired players play ball. We know
that should Port St. Joe import a team from
outside to represent this city, we personally
wouldn't Ceven lbe sufficiently interested to go
to the ball park when they played at home,
for the biggest kick we get out of watching
the games, win, lose or draw, is the fact that
we know each player personally and know
that they take pride in being a member of the
"home team." We would rather see Port St.
Joe in the cellar position rather than have our
team managers hire "foreigners."
We understand that Blountstown would like
to get back in the Gulf Coast League, and if
such is the ,case, it might be a good idea next
year to eliminate the team that this year is
made up of outside players.
THAT VICIOUS SPIRAL
.We note an article in' last Saturday's pa-
pers stating that "the steel price front cracked
wide open today and "raised the threat of
higher consumer prices for steel products from
,hairpins to automobiles. Advanced prices were
posted by a number of steel companies in the
face of pleas by President Truman that the
steel arid other industries use extreme care in
making any price increases and forego tlhni
if possible. Most of the companies cited higher
coal prices,, soaring steel scrap quotations and
expanded labor costs as forcing the increases
in order to maintain profitable operations."
*So here we go again. I 1abor gets a raise,
the manufacturer has to tidd the extra wages
to his finished product, which cost is passed
*on to the buyer. The laborer finds that his
wage boost has done, him no good, sine, the
cost of the things he buys has gone up. So he
strikes for another raise, which the manufac-
turer adds to the cost of his product, and again
the laborer finds his living costs going up, so
he strikes agaih for more wages-and so on,
in a. vicious spiral that eventually will result
in economic chaos.
When dizzier ideas for solving most every
problem are, evolved, you may look confidently
for them toward any section of the good
old U. S. A.

Eighty-five top-flight Chicago ex-
ecutives got a glimpse recently or

The Chicago Heart Association
invited the men to lunch.'at the
Union League Club. They ate
heartily and laughed at a joke or
two. And then a doctor showed
the hard-working executives what
can ha-ppen to an overworked heart.
Four human hearts were displayed
in large bottles, in what the as-
sociation said was the first exhibit
of its kind ever held.
One. was a normal heart, about
the size of a man's fist.
One was a gnarled heart, which
had swelled to about twice the
normal size. It belonged to a hot-
tempered newspaper executive who
had a stroke while arguing with
Another distorted heart wa's that
of a department store executive
who wouldn't slow down when the
doctor told him to. It had puffed
like a toy ,balloon.
The last was the heart of a man
who had followed the doctor's or-
ders. He had a heart attack when
he was 65. His physician told him
to relax, so he started enjoying
life. He wass 80 when he died in
his sleep. The department 'store
executive was 70. The newspaper-
man was only 58.
The doctor said one out of every
two of the nation's doctors, execu-
tives,, lawyers and newspapermen
die of hi g h blood pressure or
hardening of the arteries.
One out of every three persons
in the entire nation dies of these
two afflictions or rheumatic fever.
