Big Gulf Tanker Comes
In With Curtailed Load
Due To Shallow Channel
The SS Guli n eadows, capable of
carrying 135,000 barrels of oil, dis-
charged a cargo of 117,000 barrels
here Thursday of last week. being
unablee to carry a full load due to
the fact.,that she draws 31 fe-et of
water when fully loaded. The chan-
nel here allows boats of only 27 feet
or less draft to enter.
At it w.as, 'the 523-foot 10.000-ton
vessel brought in more than the
Gulfgem, which was tied up at the
pier at the same time, and dwarfed

allocated $37-8.400 'for dredging in
St. Joseph's Bay that we will get a

Vote On $90,000
City Bond Issue
Tuesday's Balloting Will Require 51
Per Cent Participation of
Freeholders of Port St. Joe will
go. to the polls next Tuesday to ac-
cept or reject a proposal that the
city issue bonds in the amount of
$90,000 to be used for the erection of
a new municipal building at the
corner of Williams Avenue and
Fifth Street, which bonds, will be
paid for over a ,period of 19 years
with revenue derived, from the 10%
utility tax n.ow being levied iby the
city on electric, gas and telephone
Only property owners, will be-al-
lowed, to participate in the forth-
coming election, and at least 51%
of those whose names appear upon
the registration 'books must cast
their ballots in order to make the
project legal. Last year there-were
306 freeholders in the city, and it
is estimated that the number has
increased since that time to about
350. This would necessitate at least
175 or 180 ballots be-ing cast, with a
majority of these 'being required to
carry the issue.
Freeholders are urged to turn out
Tuesday and, vote for the bonds,
since the 10% is. being levied re-
gardless, and the people may as well
have something to show for.these
taxes they are 'paying. And, they
probably will continue to pay this
tax. for as far back as we can reco-
member we've never heard of a .tax
being rescinded once it was slapped
on the poor taxpayer.
Plans for the new building pro-
vide for a fire station, jail and city
hall, with an apartment for'a full-
time. night fireman. With the pur-
cha.se of another fire truck and an
additional 1000 feet of hose, and
having a fireman at the station 2:4
hours a day, property owners prob-
ably would benefitt by a lowered In-
surance rate, which is plenty high
right now in this manis town.
The editor of The. Star believes
that the freeholders of our city will
be doing themselves a great benefit
(and with no additional taxes,) by
putting their okeb on this bond is-
sue next Tuesday.
'The polling place will be the city
hall and the polls will be. open from
7 a. m. to 7 p. m.

Our Country Right or Wrong
AN ITEM IN THE NEWS
A short time ago an item appeared in 'the
news which, while it didn't make banner heads,
is an example of the kind of arduous progress
that serves us all.-
Last year, the item said, the death rate from
tuberculosis dropped to a new low throughout
the nation. For the first time in our history
the number of fatalities from this cause was
That wasn't the result of chance. It was, in-
stead, the result of decades of hard and often
unrewarding work by doctors and other scien-
tists. A long list of factors had a part in the
achievement-better preventive medicine, in-
finitely improved methods of treatment for the
afflicted, a generally higher standard of liv-
ing, and so on.
Every' major advance in medicine, save for
rare instances where some revolutionary drug
;s discovered, is made much in this way. And
the United States, with its system of medicine,
-unhampered by bureaucratic domination, has
been a leader in conquering disease---a fact
which has been proven in survey after, survey.
By contrast, medicine has generally been back-
ward in the nations where it is controlled by
the state-the standards of treatment have
gone down while the cost, as in the case of all
governmental activity, has gone up.,
We in the United States are leading longer,
healthier lives. Diseases which were almost
sure killers not so many years ago now offer
little danger. A system of voluntary prepaid
-nedical care has been built up which brings
the cost of treatment and hospitalization with-
-in the easy reach of the majority of people.
These are achievements of free medicine which
must not be forgotten.

WALLACE A SADDER BUT WISER MAN
Henry Wallace, third party presidential can-
didate, is nearing the end of his course as a
factor of consequence in the political life of
America. He now realizes that when he ac-
cepted unqualified support of the Communists
that he tied a millstone around his political
This is the obvious conclusion to be drawn
from a statement he made the other (lay in an
off-the-record talk at Center Sandwich, N. i-.,
which was heard by a newspaper correspon-
dent, who has since checked with and had it
confirmed by a Wallace aide.
In that statement, Mr. Wallace said: "I'm
never going to say anything in the nature of
Redbaiting. But I must say this: If the Com-
munists would run a ticket of their own this
year we might lose 100,000 votes, but we
would gain 3,000,000. 1 know if the Commun-
ists really wanted to help us they would run
their own ticket this year and let us get those
This is the same Wallace that said in Mil-
waukee last December 30, the day after an-
nouncing his candidacy, that he "supposed"
Communists would vote for him "because I'm
sincerely in favor of peace." Jacksonville

Florida and California. Those braggarts are
forever boasting about how good their weather
is, how the sun always shihes and the tempera-
ture is always moderate, and how the nights

We, in New England, can insist this spring
that we have had the worst weather in the
country. Nobody has had such punk, consist-
ently punk, weather as we have "enjoyed" this
spring. On top of a record snowfall last win-
ter we have added the coldest, wettest and
longest spring on record.
Final figures are not yet in,, but unless there
is a radical change for the better, which no-
body would be so foolish as to expect, the
spring can soon be acclaimed as New Eng-
land's worst, than which there is nothing
worser--and let Florida and California laugh
that off.-Boston Globe.

trees outgrew and overtopped them,
taking all the direct sunlight that
Douglas fir requires. There also is
competition for water in the soil.
