Sharks Drop First
Tilt To Bainbridge
In a game featured by many pen-
alties and good defensive play, the
St. Joe Sharks lost the opening
football game of the season to Bain-
bridge, Ga.. last Friday by an. S-0
score, although they outplayed; their
Bainbridge scored the lone touch-
down in the first quarter by a sus-
tained drive which culminated in
a reverse 'by Reynolds from about
the three-yard line. The attempted
kick for point wa.s blocked by St.
Joe's center, Claude Cowart.,
In the final quarter Bainbridge
scored a safety, which brought the
score to s-0, where it remained un-
til the final gun.
Several nice gains were regis-
tered by the Sharks, but they were
unable to put together sufficient
yardage for a score.
The play of .the entire St. Joe
team would seem to indicate that
be,;ore t'he season ends it will be
a team to be reckoned with, ant

Our Country -,'' kRight or Wrong
One of the finest examples of community
co-operation we have seen in the ten years
we have been in Port St. Joe is that of the
Juitior Chamber of Commerce and the high
school getting together for the erection of an
athletic stadium on the school property near
the Centennial Building.
The school officials are providing the site of
five acres and the Jaycees will fence the area
and erect a grandstand. Proceeds from school-
sponsored events will go to the high school
athletic department and proceeds from events
sponsored by the Jaycees will go into the Jay-
cee treasury or divided with athletic organiza-
tions.. Upkeep of the field will come out of
This setup will give the community an afh-
letic park that probably would not be forth-
coming for many years, especially if it had to
wait on the accumulation of funds in the school
building fund. In addition, it may be possible
to persuade some of the minor league baseball
teams from the north to come here for spring
training. -- ...

While we thought it was a good
idea, Postmaster Drake stated em-
phatically that there would be no
week-end specials, but that lihe
would like to see the St. Joe office

Drake, "is to put off writing the

OBSERVE FIRE PREVENTION WEEK
By direction of President Truman, next week
will be observed as Fire Prevention Week.
In his proclamation, the president invited all
business, labor, civic, religious and charitable
groups and organizations, and all.agencies of
the press, radio and the moving picture indus-
try, to co-operate fully "with the objective of
initiating a fire prevention campaign continu-
ing throughout the year."
The word continuingi" goes to the heart of
the matter. It will serve no purpose if we think
of fire prevention for a single week and then
promptly forget it. The officially designated q
week must simply be a starting point. You
might combine this week with MIr. Drake's
Letter Writing Week, which is, also next week.
and write letters reminding your friends that
it is National Fire Prevention Week, thus
killing two weeks with one stone.' Every-
thing, will help, for the fight against one of
the worst destroyers of life and property must
go on unal)baeted.
According to tlhe national board of fire un-
derwriters, United States fire losses nay ex-
ceed $700,000,000 this year-the highest in our
history. This is twice the destruction caused
by the burning of San Francisco, and more
than three times the devastation wreaked by
the German air force on Britain in any single
year. Deaths by fire will probably exceed
10.000 and may also set a new and ghastly
Those figures alone should make us all sit up
and'take notice of the fact that loss by fire
has become a grave emergency. And every
one of us should remember that fire respects

On Veterans' Housing, property.
In an attempt to clear up con-
fusion in Port St. Joe, Ronald
Brugh, commander of the local Vet-
erans of Foreign Wars post, listed
the following federal regulations as
they apply to veterans buying or
renting homes or housing accom-
1. All newly constructed homes
and apartments must be held for
sale or rent to veterans or their
families for at least 30 days after
2. Builders or owners are re-
quired to place a sign, in a con-
':,picuous place on or near a new
housing unit G.ffered for sale. The
sign must indicate rent or sales
price, the fact that the dwelling is
being held for veterans, and the
name and address of the person au-
thorized, to sell or rent the unit.
These regulations, supplied' by
the office of the housing expediter,
are still in effect and can be ne-
forced, even though violations ai
widespread, points out Brugh.
Commander Brugh listed three
exceptions in which veterans pref-
erence does not apply. They are:
1. Sale of housing units for in-
vestment purposes. However, the
buyer must comply with veteran
preference regulations in renting
the individual accommodations.
2. Dwellings rebuilt because of
