VOLUME XI PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1947 NUMBER 2
Under New Law
Freeholders of County Will Go To
Polls November 4 to Vote
On School Levy
Registered voters of Gulf county
who pay taxes on either real or per-
sonal property will be asked on No-
vember 4 to vote a 31/2-mill tax on
the total assessed valuation of the
county for tahe, support of schools
in the county.
'It will be the first time that 'tax-
payers will be asked to vote a mill-
age -tax under the new school la'w
which consolidated all school spe-
cial tax districts into one.
In fact, it will be the first time
in the history of the -county that
such an election will be held by au-
thority of the school board for this
purpose, which'will be county-wite
in scope. The election itself is gau-
thorized' by the legislature.
Tom Owens, county superinten-
dent of schools,, believes there will
'e considerable advantage in op-
eration of the school system under
the new setup, which provides for
the election of but three trustees
for the entire county.
The three new trustees, who will
be named at the November 4 bal-
loting, will be elected to serve
terms of two years each. They will
take office next 'January 1, the ex-
piration date of the terms of the
present trustees. T'he new law re-
quires 'that no two members of the
three shall come from the same
-sliKh'ol board' district.

The baking company is empha-
sizing the fact that Bamby bread

Fish Planted to Replace
Those Killed By Storm
The state game and fresh water
fish commission this week planted
more than 15,000 fingerlings in the
Apalaohicola River and its nearby
tributaries to counteract a serious
loss of game fish suffered during
the Septenmber hurricane, an eX-
amiple of which was cited in The
Star a few weeks back when L. E.
Jones and Andy Owens found thou-
sands of dead fish floating on tihe
surface in a stream off the east
end of Lake Wimico.
It is estimated by lishery biolo-
gists that 90 per cent of the fish in
the Aphlachicola River were killed
when the storm drove salt water up
the river for more than 10 miles.
Baby bream, bass, crappies, sliad
and speckled perch from the .state
batcher'y near Wewahitchka were
planted in waters 10 to 20 miles
north of Apalachicola in Sol Creek.

Doc Can Really 'Fly'
Glenn Boyles, in his "Tattler"
tnhis week. says: "I flew over (on
I the ground) to Apalachicola with
! Doc Norton to see the football
Sgaike -. Which reminds us of
the time a bunch of army and navy
brass hats came in here on a re-
connaisance and were entertained
at B. B. Conklin's cabin out there
on Wetappo Creek. Doc was the
lead-off man in the procession and
he got so far ahead of the parade
that when we reached the ferry at
Oversts'eet we had to wait ten min-
utes for the rest of the caravan to
catch up with us (and this was 'way
.back during the war when 35 mph
was supposed to be patriotic).
When the slow-pokes arrived at the
ferry, Joe Sharit remaried: "Doc,
you were in quite a hurry, weren't
you?" And Doc, the darned hound,
turned to us and said: "Smitty, I
told you that you were driving too
fast!" '' The doile-crosser!

Our Country Right or Wrong
INTO THE FOLD
Perhaps it was face-saving that made Sena-
tor Pepper qualify his week-end espousal of
the Marshall Plan. It would have been much
more effective and altogether convincing had
he unequivocally recanted his spokesmanship
for Soviet Russia.
Senator Pepper unconditionally pledged his
support to the IMarshall Plan for rehabilitation
of non-Communist western Europe. This is
wholly contrary to the position he took against
the plan last month.
Evidently Senator Pepper learned a lot of
things about his pro-Russian statements from
his recent trip around the home bailiwick.
Somehow the senator satisfies himself that his
current support of the Marshall Plan is not an
about-face from his condemnatory stand on
the program in August. The point is, however,
that he no longer balances it on the Soviet
Even though he has not quite purified him-
self of the Red tide which for a time seem-
ingly had engulfed his reasoning. Floridians
will welcome him back into the fold where
thinking is not through Russia to the United
States but from the United States toward Rus-
sia. And that has nothing to do with whether
they like the Marshall Plan or not.-Miami
FIRE HAZARDS WILL INCREASE
For quite some time now the Port St. Joe
fire siren has not sounded except to inform us
of the noon hour, but the approach of cold
weather will bring an increase in many fire
hazards, particularly in homes where heating
and electrical equipment will be working at
capacity, and soon our volunteer fire laddies
will be hopping out .of warm beds at 2 o'clock
in the morning to hustle and save the dwellings
of their friends and neighbors from the rav-
ages of old demon fire.

RECOVERY DOESN'T COME OVERNIGHT
With the situation what it is today all over
the world, it seems strange to hear somebody
speaking of any particular section being bene-
fited by the war. Yet that ii what Charles Tay-
lor, economist for the Federal Reserve Bank
in Atlanta, is saying about the South.
He is saying that the war may prove a boon
to this section of the country, insofar as it has
tended to make the people "realize" the value
of their resources. It may have demonstrated
to the South, he adds, the great potentialities
for progress and growth in this section of the
We agree with the economist that there may
be an element of psychology in the fact that the
people of the South have not pushed ahead any
further than they have. There is a great dif-
ference between understanding, knowing and
"realizing," as he puts it, and it may be that
the "realization" has been exactly what we
down here have been. lacking. It is often some
little something in the life of an individual or
a group of people which brings on a "realiza-
tion" which changes an entire course of events.
Such was the case with the peoples of Europe
during the 19th century, when a great wave of
"nationalism" swept over the continent.
If it has been a war that may bring on this
favorable reaction in the South, so also was it
a great conflict which set this section back half
a century or so in its progress. The Southland
has had to rebuild itself from the ashes of
America's great civil strife, the War Between
the' States. In doing so, it has had to overcome
problems which have been both economic and
psychological. It has been difficult to differ-
entiate between the two.
And that serves to emphasize current condi-
tions on the continent of Europe, which in a
sense are analogous to those which confronted
the South following the War Between the
States. This is particularly true insofar as they
relate to the length of time that, it will take
for postwar reconstruction. In Europe, the
problems also are of an economic as well as a
psychological nature and, likely as not, the
latter are the more weighty of the two con-
siderations. Incentive has been the principal
psychological force lacking among the Euro-
Whereas it has taken the South all of nearly
a century to start on the upward climb of
progress, the 16-nation report wlich was ren-
dered in response to the Marshall Plan, en-
visages a recovery by 1952. America's southern
states had many more factors operating in
their favor than have the war-ridden nations
of Europe. That is something which many peo-
ple fail to "realize."
Recovery in Europe is going to be a long-
haul, and nothing like a short-haul of several
years. It is going to take hard work on the
part of the people there, and more than that,
a psychological rehabilitation that will pro-
duce these arduous labors, granted, of course,
there does not come along another war to
make all of their visions a forlorn hope.-Jack-
