The coin boxes brought in $49.80,

sponded nobly."

Seniors Present

Play Next Friday

"The Singing Ghost," An Unusual
Mystery Play, Is Laden
With Suspense

Did you ever hear a ghost sing?
I.f not, then by all means see the
three act play, "The Singing Ghost,"
which will be 'produced by the
senior class of Port St. Joe high
school next Friday, Fe'bruary 20. at
8 p. mn. il the high school audi-
torium. Here is an unusual mystery
play-a play wherein there are
plots and counterplots, and enough
suspense to keep you sitting on the
edge of your seat from the. begin-
ning to the final curtain.
The story concerns the daughter
of a famous opera star who died
under mysterious circumstances.
Norna, the daughter, is certain her
mother was murdered and sets out,
to prove it. How this is accom-
plished forms the major portion of
the story. The supernatural element
creeps in ,when the voice of the
murdered woman comes out of the
empty air, singing an operatic aria
that almost drives the various sus-
pects to distraction.
The comedy element is furnished
1by a young colored girl who "didn't
hire out to work for spooks" ana
who is always trying to get out of
the house, only to find things hap-
pening outside that are. worse than
in the interior.
The curtain will go up promptly
at 8:00. Tickets are 50c for adults
and 25c for students, and are now
on sale at the Carver Drug Co.

on farms in South Carolina has
decreased from 297,000 in 1920 to
191,000 in 1945, a decrease of 106,000

10 times.

Our Country Right or Wrong


WHO'S SENDING PRICES UP?
Everybody's talking about inflation, the high
cost of living and the depreciated dollar, and
a'lot of people say that manufacturing profits
are at the root of it all.
If we paid more attention to facts and less
to fancy, we would see that this theory doesn't
stand up. A lot of people may not know it, but
The Star is a manufacturer. We take the raw
material-paper-and turn out the finished
product, be it a newspaper, a letterhead or an
envelope. And we can truthfully say that
while we arc doing more business today than
ever before-and charging higher prices-that
our maginsof profit is a great deal smaller than
it was five years ago. We're working longer
hours, turning out more work, and banking
less money.
And we're not the only one. The same thiing
is true of retail profits inkall lines. Public fac-
tual reports show that profits per dollar sale
are lower than before the war or under OPA,
,and are still declining.
What can be done about it? Don't ask us,
but we know of one step that would be an ef-
fective step against inflation, and that is to
cut ,down governmental spending.
One of the biggest price boosters rarely gets
the attention it deserves the government.
Virtually unbridled spending, coupled with a
staggering debt, and implemented by a long


list of dubious fiscal policies. can't help but
send prices up and up. A larger part of your
dollar, believe it or not, goes to the govern-
ment than for any other item of expenditure
(and we're not scouting in that 10 per cent the
city of Port St. Joe socks on your electric, gas
and telephone bills). In 1946, for instance, gov-
ernment took 31.4 of your dollar. Food, by
comparison, took 18.3 cents, housing 13.8 cents
and clothing 9.3 cents.
Government cut your dollar to 69 cents-and
that included only direct expenditures. Gov-
ernment's total take, if it could be figured.
would be much higher.
Since 1939 the cost of food' has gone up 100
per cent, while the cost of government has
gone up 377 per cent. Government now costs
more than food.

BOUQUET WITHOUT A ROSE
Walter W. Rose of Orlando, one of the firm
conservatives in the state senate, Eisenhowers
himself out of the race for'governor. Senator
Rose had been prominently mentioned as a
probable- starter. His entry would have made
the contest more complicated-and more un-
certain. He has a large following of friends
throughout the state who would have exerted
influential effort in his support.
Senator Rose says he will continue his cam-
paign for better state government "as a pri-
vate citizen." IHe is keenly interested in tax-
ation, and against a sales tgx. lie fears a
threatened return of the legalization of slot
machines, which would make the state a part-
ner in a nefarious racket. Walter Rose's ac-
tivity and wise counsel will continue.to be of
distinct value to Florida.
So, the Florida gubernatorial bouquet will
be without a Rose. The people must choose
from its other floral components the flower
that is to he transplanted--and bloorh or fade
-in the executive mansion garden.
-Tampa Tribune.

If President Truman. keeps on talking for
his race equality measure he won't be able to
use for but a few months that porch he's build-
ing on the White House, as that meeting of
governor's held at Wakulla Springs indicates.

The song without words: The Star Spanglea
Banner.

WE'RE CELEBRATING OUR



TENTH ANNIVERSARY!

On February 13, 1938, we.moved into our present location and assumed the name of "ST, JOE MOTOR COMPANY," the estah-
lishment prior to that being known merely as "The Ford Place." In the ten years since then we have kept pace with our rapidly--
growing city not only by installing new and improved equipment, but by remodeling and adding to our original building until today
we have what is considered one of the finest Ford agencies in this section of Florida with 11,700 square feet of floor space compared
to the 1500 square feet we had in "The Ford Place."
. . And it is to you, our customers and friends, that we owe this continued expansion and growth which enables us better to
serve your needs, and we want to thank each and every one of you from the bottom of our heart for your confidence in us.
