vided for Modern $1,200,000
Building At Pensacola
The campaign among Baptists
and friends of Northwest Florida
to raise $100,000 for a Baptist hos-
pital at Pensacola has been placed
in the hands of Rev. Aubrey Allen.
pastor of the Olive Baptist Church
of that city. .
Mr. Allen, who called at The Star
office Monday, stated that funds
must be in hand by mid-December
to assure the granting of other
promised monies and donations of
$100,000 by non-Baptist business
men of Pensacola.
The Baptist Hospital Association,
he said, now has $227,000, plus a
beautiful site for the hospital-the
highest point in Pensacola. The ad-
ditional money sought will enable
the association to construct a five-
story masonary structure, with 130
beds, meeting specification for a
Class A general hospital. Cost is
estimated at about $1,200,000, in-

No Sunday Hunting In
Calhoun Says Sheriff
Sheriff J. C. Tucker of Blounts-
town announces that he has been
requested by petition to enforce
the law prohibiting the discharge
of. firearms on Sunday in Calhoun
For the past several years, the
sheriff said, hunters have come to
the county from surrounding areas
to hunt on Sunday. Since they have
not been bothered heretofore, it is
his wish that everyone be in-
formed so there will be no hard-
ship resulting in enforcement of
Enforcement of this law is due
partly to hunters' disregard for
rural churches and populated sec-
tions, said Tucker.
Health Board Will
Ask for New Birth
Aimed Particularly At Protecting
Those Children Who Are Born
Out of Wedlock
The Florida State Board of
Health will ask the coming session
of the legislature for a new birth
certificate law which will protect
birth records, particularly those of
children born out of wedlock, from
curious or prying eyes, according
to Dr. Wilson T. Sowder, state
He explained that under the
present law, the state board of
health's vital statistics bureau must
give a complete birth record of any
individual to any person who ap-
plies for it. Thus, the fact that a
child is illegitimate, has a birth in-
jury, his mother had syphilis, or his
father was in a penal institution or
hospital for the mentally ill, could
easily be public knowledge.
Dr. Sowder also pointed out that

Lodge Plans Simi!ar Affair Prior
The turkey shoot sponsored by
the local Moose Lodge at White
City Wednesday of last week was a
decided success from every stand-
point, with lucky contenders bring-
ing home 13 turkeys.
All participating got so much en-
joyment out of the shoot that it has
been suggested the lodge sponsor a
similar affair about a week before
Christmas and that it be held
either at the city ball park or the
No definite date has been de-
cided on, but it is opinionated that
Friday. December 17, would be the
ideal date. In case it is staged at
- the football field, it could be run
until late evening under the lights.
, It is also planned, when the shoot
is over, to hold a party at the
Moose home for'the members, their
families and friends. This turkey
shoot will also be for the benefit
of the Moose Christmas basket
Lucky winners at last week's
* shoot were Curtis Gwaltney, W. C.

Features of City
Change As New
Buildings Go Up
Old-Timers Returning To Port
St. Joe Today Would
In the -past thirteen years Port
St. Joe's business and residential
sections have expanded to such an
extent that anyone who had moved
from the city in 1935 and returned
today would be dumfounded, not
to mention flabbergasted, at the
changes that have occurred.
In 1935 the main business dis-
trict consisted of two blocks on
Reid Avenue from the A. N. depot
to Third Street, and practically all
the residences probably could have
been set up onfa four-block area.
With the coming of the St. Joe
Paper Company mill. several new
business houses were started, not
to' mention new dwellings, water
and sewer lines were laid and
streets graded and paved.
Today Reid Avenue is almost
solidly lined on both sides with
modern business buildings and
Monument Avenue is also rapidly
building up. Latest additions on
Reid in the past feW years are
mainly between Third and Fifth
Stre~ets. Hig Stone has erected a
store building and an office build-
ing opposite the Port Theater, and
adjoining these is a handsome store
building erected by W. I. Duren.
In the next block we find a brick
and concrete block building put up
by Mr. Brock and now occupied by
Alex Young's grocery. Crossing the
street we find a store building, as
yet vacant, erected by Dr. A. L.
Ward, and between it and the Mil-
ler Drug Store is the spacious store
housing Dan Brooks' hardware and
sporting goods establishment.
Still on the same side of the

Aged and Blind Are
Increases Not Automatic, But Are
Based On What Individual Re-
quires for Basic Necessities
Higher maximum grants to aged
and blind persons were reflected in
public assistance "payments made
through the state welfare board in
October, but since the program is
based on needs of the individual,
not all grants were increased.
Robert Bellows, who is a mem-
ber of the District 2 welfare board,
said yesterday that many persons
.receiving public assistance have
the mistaken understanding that
the 'higher maximums made effec-
tive October 1 meant an immediate
and automatic increase. This is
not true, he emphasized. Each
grant is made on the basis of what
the individual requires for basic

Not So Good In Gulf
County This Year
Game Commission Says Turkeys,
Deer and Quail Scarce, But
Plenty of Squirrels
The November issue of "Florida
Wildlife," publication of the state
game and fresh water' commission.,
comes to our desk this week, and
in it the commission gives a state-
Wide survey of game stock by dis-
tricts and what nimrods may ex-
pect this season.
, The article has this to say of the
Third District, which includes Gulf
"Last year the Third District had
perhaps the best supply of game in
the state, and despite heavy sum-
mer and fall rains it looks like a
good bet to hang onto its reputa-
tion this year: The best section, un-
fortunately, will be of least benefit
to the average hunter. As in the
past, the so-called "plantation" sec-
tions of Leon and Jefferson coun-
ties are literally lousy with all
species of game-particularly quail.
However, this territory is practic-
ally 100 per cent posted against
public hunting. Northwest Florida
hunters, though, will still be able
to get their money's worth in other
sections of the district.
"Perhaps the best deer hunting
in the South lies in this district.
The old Choctawhatchee Forest,
now known as the Eglin Field Pre-
serye, stacks up with some of the
best northern states as a deer hunt-
er's mecca. Last year slightly over
4000 nimrods accounted for 1100 le-
gal bucks during a 47-day controlled
hunt. That's an average that would
stand out in any state and pros-
pects look even better this year.
Outside of the forest the "one-gal-
lus" deer hunter's best chances lie
in Liberty and Wakulla counties.
"As in nearly every other dis-
trict, turkeys have also shown a
marked increase. Chief Wildlife
Officer Francis Villar says the
northern half of Escambia county
has more turkeys than ever before

To Find Hunter
Lost In Willis
Officials Believe Panama City
Man, Missing for Week,
Drowned; Boat Found
Authorities had practically aban-
doned hope Wednesday in their ef-
fort to locate Merle Bishop, 34, of
Panama City, who disappeared last
Friday in the wild reaches of the
Willis Swamp area.
Search parties headed by Sheriff
Byrd E. Parker of Gulf county, and
soldiers from Tyndall Field operat-
ing a crash boat, have combed the
swamp since Saturday. Bishop had
left Panama City Friday to join a
group of hunters at Southern Kraft
lodge, and when he failed to make
an appearance by Saturday morn-
ing, a search was started along the
Brothers River. Bishop's empty
boat and motor were found shortly
after the search began.
As the hunt for Bishop continued,
many Bay countians joined in, as
did Boy Scouts and members of
the highway patrol.
The missing man is the son of
Mr. and Mrs. Fred Bishop of Pan-
ama City and was employed as
head timekeeper at the Southern
Members of the Bishop family
have been making every effort to
prevent word that her husband is
missing from reaching his wife,
who is an expectant mother.

By PHILIP CHATHAM
In the game here last Friday with
the Bonifay Blue Devils, the St.
Joe Sharks started scoring early in
the game, with Bobo Owens mak-
ing a 4-yard run around right end.
Extra point was made by kicking.
In the second quarter Charles

shortly followed by Owens on the
same path for another counter.
Again the extra point was made on
In the third quarter Bill Fleming

Our Country ...-- Right or Wrong
WHO ELECTED HARRY TRUMAN?
Prior to election day, the editor of The Star,
along with the great majority of editors all over
the nation, took assorted potshots at Truman and
while giving him the horselaugh, predicted that
he didn't have a chance against Dewey. .
And were we all surprised?
Now that the election is past, some of the
more prominent labor leaders are claiming that
the unions elected Harry. According to them,
the biggest single issue was the Taft-Hartley act.
We differ there. Dewey ran strongly in the
industrial states, where the labor vote is pro-
portionately largest, and carried post of them.
Truman, on the other hand, did extremely well
in the agricultural regions where organized la-
bor amounts to a small minority of the popula-
tion. 0h--W- 2 W isSSS m1i 4- *' -
High-handed Harry, as The Star referred to
him prior to election day, doesn't owe his suc-
cess to any group or any class. He wasn't elected
by labor or capital or agriculture or any other
segment of the nation. As w& pointed out edi-
torially two weeks ago, it was our opinion that
the U. S. A. had finally become of age, that the
people had finally got'out from under control of
the special interests in other words, Truman
-was elected by the American people-and he is
the president of all the people. He doesn't even
-owe allegiance to the Democratic leaders, since
rnost of them deserted him when they thought
Ihis cause was lost-and he won in spite of these
It's hard to change our tune, but it looks as
though Harry S. Truman has a chance to go
down in history as one of the great presidents-
as a man who, when the world was torn between
:slavery ,and freedom, stood staunchly for the
liberties of mankind, and was too big to admit
allegiance to special interests of any kind. We
only hope that he may measure up to the enor-
mous responsibilities that have fallen upon him.
SQUASH A MANUFACTURED PRODUCT?
If you polish a squash, does that make it a
That's what some some of the members of the
interstate commerce commission ruled, and a
more silly edict we can't imagine.
This incomprehensible bit of malarky came
forth from the massive brains of the ICC last
week after some of the commissioners ruled that
fruits and vegetables that have been washed,
packaged and otherwise prepared for market
are manufactured articles rather than farm com-
Only reason the ICC thought up such a hare-
brained idea was that they wanted to extend
the area of their authority. Seems that trucks
hauling farm products are exempt from ICC
regulation with all its red tape.
Farmers, dealers and truckers are protesting
the ruling, as they should, for every little bit of
additional control gained by any government
agency in any line means additional -cost not
only to the consumer but to the taxpayer.
Maybe a lot of you people don't know it, but
most of those shiny yellow squashes you buy are
washed, waxed and polished before they go on
the market. Gives 'em a sorta sexy appeal.
To us, no matter what you do to 'em, fresh
vegetables are still fresh vegetables, and as far
as we can see, old Mother Nature is the manu-
TOJO'S BIG MISTAKE
Tojo told the Japanese war lords, when he
counselled with them upon the attack on Pearl
Harbor, that the ultimate outcome would favor
He pictured the soldiers of the mikado as
tough, unafraid, and prepared for death because
they had been taught stoical acceptance of their
fate in battle. A Nipponese soldier who died in
combat became a national hero. But the Ameri-
cans, he said, were a weak-spirited people. Tojo
declared Americans had become so inured to soft
living that they would not give up their fleshpots
long enough to fight off an invading enemy. The
American boys, he added, were afraid of death;
there was nothing in their philosophy which
taught them how to die for their country.
* But the American boys did fight, and they did
die, and they won the war. Tojo made a grievous
mistake, and for that error he was sentenced to
death by an international court. The fate which
has befallen him could receive no more appro-
priate comment than those cold-blooded, cyni-
cal words that were said to have come from his
own mouth when the bombs were dropped on
Pearl Harbor: "So sorry."-Florida Times-Union.

TEN SAFETY RULES FOR
HUNTERS SIMPLY MEAN
USING COMMON SENSE
With the hunting season now
under way, all nimrods are ex-
horted to remember that com-
mon sense in handling guns, plus
consideration for others, will keep
down unnecessary accidents.
With more hunters in the field,
sportsnmanship and safety are in-
creasingly necessary. Sportsman-
ship is just good manners. The
good hunter uses his head, observes
the rules, and puts out cigarets
and campfires carefully.
The following 10 commandments
of safety have been promulgated
by the National Safety Council and
the Sporting Arms and Ammuni-
tion Manufacturers' Institute:
1. Treat every gun with the re-
spect due a loaded gun. This is the
cardinal rule of gun safety.
2. Keep the firing mechanism on
"safe" until the instant you wish
3. Carry only empty guns, taken
down or with the action open, into
your auto, camp and home.
4. Always carry your gun so you
can control the direction of the
muzzle, even if you stumble.
5. Be sure of your target before
you pull the trigger.
6. Never point a gun at anything
you do not wish to shoot.
7. Never leave your gun unat-
tended unless you unload it first.
8. Never climb a tree or a fence
with a loaded gun. -
9. Never shoot at a flat, hard
surface or the surface of water.
10. Do not mix, gunpowder and

READ THIS ABOUT THE GREAT GULF TIRE
W HY DO so many tires wear smooth down the center, yet
still have good rubber along the edges?
It;s simply because their tread design forces the center area to
bear the brunt of the load.
But with the Gulf Tire it's a different story. This tire is de-
signed with a wider, flatter tread that distributes the load of
your car more evenly. As a result, the Gulf tread wears more
e evenly from one edge to the other-lasts far longer.
With 7 ribs, there's a
"riding bar" down the cen-
iiAU \ter of the Gulf tire. Thus,
e /just where the load pres-
gg \ sureJs greatest, you ride on
l t rubber-not on a groove.

This tire can stand punish-
ment, because it has a
stronger carcass with
stronger, new-type cords.

Less chance of blowouts
and carcass failures, be-
