SCHOOL FACULTY PLANS"
FOR CHRISTMAS PARTY
The faculty of the St. Joe schools
have planned a Christmas party to
be held next Wednesday afternoon

a rhyme describing himself rather
than his name upon the gift's card.
Each person will read the rhyme
which accompanies his gift and
attempt to guess the name of the
donor.
Christmas music will be played
throughout the party, and follow-
ing the gift distribution, the group
will sing carols. Refreshments of
cookies, hot chocolate and salted
nuts will be served.
The committee responsible for
tlis entertainment is made up of
Miss Netta Niblack, Miss Ann Ful-
ton and Miss Sara Jane Griffin.
Miss Margaret Smith is permanent
chairman of recreation.

Mothers, who are the official cooks

this holiday season if they plan a

"something special" is expected for

Here is a menu for the day which
will prove popular.

Committee Wants
'One-Pot' Treasury

Other Recommendations Made By
Senate-House Group

A joint senate-house tax commit-
tee meeting in Mianmi has recom-
mended that Florida's 100 or so
earmarked and special funds be
abolished and all appropriations
come out of a "one-pot" treasury.
The special funds were said to
total about $136:,000,000 a year.
In addition to two resolutions ask-
ing a "one-pot" treasury, the com-
mittee approved motions recom-
mending that the state comptroller
be appointed by the legislature in-
stead of the governor; study the
teacher's retirement fund with the
view of putting it on a sound ac-
tuarial basis; wipe the books clean
of all unexpended appropriations on
June 30, 1949, and asking that a
legislative reference bureau be es-
tablished.
One motion put the group on re-
cord as recommending "the elimi-
nation of continuing and earmarked
appropriations." A four-page list of
such appropriations was given.
Another motion, backed the elimi-
nation of special operating funds
for the state securities commission,
radio station WRUF at the Univer-
sity of Florida, "and all other state
agency funds as 'recommended by
the comptroller's report."

Reading and Vision
General reading requirements
have increased 170 per cent since
1900. The average school child must
read 15 times more today than in
1900. America's vision must be re-
educated to meet the demands of a
near-point world. Many children do-
not have sufficient visual maturity
to begin reading until they are seven
or eight years old, according to
American Optometric association.
Odysseus, ancient Ithacan king,
was named Ulysses by the Romans.

Our Country Right or Wrong

SPARE THE ROD, AND WHAT HAVE WE?
For more than eleven years the editor of The
Star has been complacent in the knowledge that
never has there been published in the columns
,of this' paper any article wherein the youth of
our city has been involved outside the pale of the
law. True, many youngsters have been involved
in boyish pranks and escapades, but nothing that
a. good hickory switch across the seat of the
britches couldn't cure, and which, if published,
would only bring embarrassment to the perpe-
trator.
But of recent months our unbounded faith in
our youngsters has been rudely shattered. We
hear of a boyish organization in which the initia-
tion rite requires a new member to steal from
some store goods to the value of five dollars.
A 15-year-old boy slashes the throat of a
playmate with a knife over some small quarrel.
The problem more than likely could have been
settled amicably with bare fists and a couple of
bloody noses. 'Teen-age youngsters have


10 YEARS AGO
From the Files of The Star


Centennial Fete Underway
The opening exercises of the Cen-
-tennial Celebration marking the
100th anniversary of the drawing
-up of Florida's first constitution in
1838 at old St. Joseph, were color-
ful as well as interesting. They be-
:gan Wednesday. morning with a pa-
rade from the downtown area to
the Centennial grounds, led by the
St. Joe high school band, in which
-units representing the Florida Na-
tional Guard, fhe U. S. navy, the
American Legion, various civic or-
ganizations and a cavalcade to
which the racing stables at the race
'track contributed 30 spirited horses
and their riders.
- Upon arrival at the Centennial
Auditorium, the colors were raised,
the band played "The Star Spangl-
ed Banner"-and the new building
stood dedicated to service of state
and nation. Mayor J. L. Sharit gave
the opening address and then in-
troduced G. Pierce Wood, Arthur
L. Steed of the state WPA, and U.
S. Senator Claude Pepper. all of
,whom spoke on the historical im-
'portance of the occasion.
Speakers Thui-sday were Justice
R. H. Chapman and Justice Rivers
Buford of the state supreme court,
D. Stuart Gillis, president of the
state senate; W. McL. Christie,
speaker of the house; former Gov-
ernor Doyle Carlton; Nathan Mayo,
commissioner of agriculture, and
Arthur B. Hale, chairman of the
state road department.
General consensus of opinion is
that the celebration is all that its
promoters said it would be, and
nothing but the highest praise has
been heard, particularly for the
fireworks display each evening.
This is also true of the many ex-
hibits in the auditorium by Florida
National Exhibits, the state fores-
try department, the state depart-
ment of agriculture and the U. S.


been taken to court for breaking and entering a
beach cottage. Charges have been made
that several youths have entered service stations
and business houses during the dead of night.
The Star doesn't like to publish facts like this,
even editorializing generally as we are doing,
but if something isn't done about it by the par-
ents we will make front page news of such hap-
penings, giving names of the culprits .. All
of which would bring shame upon families, cast
a shadow over the future life of the youngsters
and serve no particular good, for The
spoken word is given scant attention; the printed
word is thoughtfully weighed. The spoken word
barely asserts; the printed word thoroughly con-
vinces. The spoken word is lost; the printed word
remains. And it would remain to damn
some youngster who, perhaps, knew not what
he was doing.
Is this problem arising caused by the home
life of the youngsters? Are the parents of today
lax in bringing up their children-failing to in-
still in them the difference between right and
wrong and respect for the possessions of others?
. Is it the fault of our school system? Does
the new theory of "spare the rod" now in effect
in our schools have anything to do with it? .
We can't truthfully say, but we do know that
when we were growing up we got the plain hell
beat out of us when we were caught in some-
thing we weren't supposed to be doing and
our teachers had the privilege of dishing out fit
punishment for our trespasses at school and
when we got a licking at school, we were handed
similar treatment at home.
Offhand, we'd say that the children of today
are getting out of hand and that something will
have to be done about it and about the
best cure, in our opinion, is to go back to the
spanking in the woodshed-except that nowa-
days practically everybody burns gas or fuel
oil, and the woodshed is non-existent.

Florida Wood Naval
Stores In '47 Reach
$15,000,000 Value
Florida wood naval stores, the
modern version of one of the
state's oldest industries and now
an important part of the state's
economy were valued at approxi-
mately $15,000,000 last year, the
research and industrial division of
the Florida State Chamber of
Commerce reported.
"Wood naval stores are obtained
from the destructive distillation of
old pine stumps and limbs left by
former timber and logging opera-
tions," said the report. "This re-
latively new industry profitably ut-
ilizes a former waste material
and, at the same time, clears land
for pastures, reforestation and
farming. A second type of wood
and naval stores, known as sul-
phate, are by-products of the
state's kraft paper industry.
"Production of wood naval stores
.stood at more than ten million
gallons of turpentine and other dis-
tillates and approximately 350,-
000 barrels of resin last year. Pay-
rolls of the industry approached
$9,000,000.
"Gum naval stores, important
products of Florida since early
Spanish days, are obtained in the
traditional way of distilling the sap
from the live pine tree.
"Products of both the gum and
wood processes have particular
characteristics, each being super-
ior to the other for specific pur-
poses. Both have a wide variety,
of uses and are essential to many
other industries."
STATE C. OF C. SUGGESTED
SLOGAN FOR LICENSE TAGS
Harold Colee, executive vice-pres-
ident of the Florida State Chamber
of Commerce points out that the
state chamber is primarily respon-
sible for the advertising slogan ap-
pearing on the 1949 car tags.
"The state chamber, during the
Holland administration, influenced
the legislature to provide for such
a slogan, which was accomplished
on an 'if and when' basis, if new
plates could be cast, and when
steel would be available," Colee
said.
"'Year Round State' is what we
suggested, but 'Sunshine State,' the
slogan in use, will doubtless meet
with general approval."

Vaccine Prevents
Whooping Cough

Injection Advised Between Third
and Ninth Months of Childs Life

For some reason, probably be-
cause it is so common among chil-
dren, whooping cough is seldom
taken as seriously is it should be.
Easily spread from person to per-
son, whooping cough causes more
deaths in children under five years
than measles, diphtheria and scar-
let fever -combined. Besides being
dangerous in itself, whooping cough
may bring serious complications.
There is now a vaccine which of-
fers immunity to whooping cough.
Since infants and young children
a're particularly susceptible to the
disease, most doctors advise the in-
jection of this vaccine between the
third and ninth months of a child's
life. Records show that if given at
least three months before exposure,
the vaccine will prevent the dis-
ease in 85% of the children vacci-
nated. The remainder of children
injected are apt to have a less se-
vere attack than they would other-
wise.
Epidemics of whooping cough


strike most often in winter and
early spring. The grave danger is
the fact that its first signs resemble
those of a cold, and so may be ne-
glected. Early symptoms include a
running nose, dry cough and slight
fever, and it is in this stage that
whooping cough is most easily
spread.
If a child's "cold" hangs on, the
doctor should be consulted without
delay. To wait for the characteris-
tic "whoop" of the disease is to de-
lay treatment until it is in a seri-
ous stage.


Rifling of Husband's
Pockets Held


Legal


A common pleas judge in Cleve-
land, Ohio, last week ruled that a
wife has the right to go through
the pockets of her husband's pants
and take what money she needs.
In granting a divorce to Mrs. F.
Cheslock, the judge said: "A man
cannot be charged with stealing
from his wife; neither may a wife
be guilty of stealing from her hus-
band."

It's amazing how many excuses a
stingy man can find for not making
a donation to a worthy cause.


Stores To Omit
Half Holidays

Weekly Half Holiday Is Abolished
and Longer Hours Planned

Longer shopping hours will be
observed for the benefit of shop-
pers in Port St. Joe during the holi-
day season, according to the Retail
Merchants Association.
Merchants have already abolished
the Wednesday half holiday until
after Christmas, and beginning on
Monday, December 20, through Fri-
day, December 24, they will remain
open until 8 p. m. every day.
These arrangements will care for
those who are unable to shop dur-
ing the day, and will also care for
those who put off their Christmas
shopping until the last moment.
All stores have a wide variety of
holiday goods, the best lines since
before the war, and shoppers are
urged to do their buying early if
they want a wide selection to
choose from.

vin Rooks, joined with more than
2000 other instructors last Friday
in Panama City for .the first West
Florida regional meeting covering
the area west of the Apalachicola
River.
The morning speaker was W. T.

of education, who discussed the
lack of funds for the school pro-
gram now in effect and said that
"we'll have to work to see that the
state has enough money for the
program." -
Also speaking during the morn-
ing session was Edward Hender-
son, state department of education
representative, who spoke upon the
need of a sound retirement plan for
the teachers of Florida. He advo-
cated the earmarking of taxes for
the retirement fund.
After the lunch hour, the visitors
went into class groups for discus-
sion of professional problems. The
groups were composed of elemen-
Stary principals, secondary princi-
pals and teachers.
A. G.\ Holt, Tennessee educator,
in the afternoon addressed a meet-
ing of principals.

wrapped up in my work and
you will be, too, if you persuade'
Santa Claus to bring you one of
those wonderful electric blankets.
Now you might think because
you live in the Sunny South that'
an electric -blanket is an extrava-
gance. "Why, Reddy," you say,
"I only need a blanket about two
months of the year!" But you and
I know that in spite of statistics
it does sometimes get down
around freezing. For those few
nights, you have to have several
blankets one just wouldn't be
enough. And then, when the
cold snap is over, they all have to
be cleaned and stored for
three-fourths of the year.


Think what a blessing it would
be to have just one blanket to
clean and store each year! Not
only that, but a blanket that
keeps your bed an even, com-
fortable temperature whether
it's merely a bit chilly outdoors,
whether it's one of those truly
cold nights, dr whether it changes
from one to the other in the wee
small hours! You just set the
automatic control for the tem-
perature that'best suits you. The
bed is warm when you get in ...
it stays that way all night long
no matter what happens to the
weather..
See your appliance dealer to-
day and make yours a cozy
Christmas!

scription, "Sunshine State"

Florida's 1949 automobile license
plates went on sale in Gulf county
a n d elsewhere throughout the
state on December 1.
The editor of The Star happened
to be in the court house at Wewa-
hitchka Saturday and talked Uncle
Edd Pridgeon out of a low one-No.
20, to be exact. The new tags have
red numbers and letters on a
cream background and, for the first
time in history, bear a slogan, "Sun-
shine State."
The "same county designation
numbers are being used this year
as in the past; but slight changes
have been made in letter designa-
tions for various types of vehicles.,
Letter suffixes also will be used in
counties having heavy sales be-
cause of lack of space on the tags.
Price of private passenger car
tags ranges from $5 to $25, and
varies for commercial vehicles and
trucks according to use and weight.
Tags may be secured in Port St.
Joe at the office of Geo. Tapper.


Sharks Rout Altha

In Benefit Grid Tilt

The St. Joe Sharks routed the
Altha Wildcats 42-13 last Friday
night at Centennial Field in a bene-
fit football game for the Moose
Christmas fund for underprivileged
children.
Neither team Iwas able to score
in the first quarter, but the Wild-
cats pushed over a touchdown in
the second quarter for A brief lead.
The Sharks tied it up a few min-
utes later when a pass from Buster
-Owens was taken by Raymond
Lawrence for 50 yards and a touch-
down. The locals then took the
lead when Owens peeled off a 40-
yard run for another counter. The
invaders came back for another
score in this quarter but failed to
add the extra point, and left the
field at half-time trailing 14-13.
Phil Chatham opened the third
quarter scoring with a 35-yard run
around right end and Owens a few
minutes later 'took an 80-yard gal-
lop to cross the goal line.
Two passes from Owens, one to
Chatham and the other to Law-
rence, accounted for the scoring in
the final quarter.

discovered that many hunters used
