City Quiets Down Following
Following the impact of that two-
column headline last week in re-
gard to the Emanon (Noname) mill
that supposedly was to be erected
here, the editor is still alive despite
threats of shooting, hanging and
tar and feathering.
As we went up the street Friday
morning to get our mail, three irate
motorists done their best to run us
down, but we were too watchful for
such playfulness. Alex Young read
only the front page part of the ar-
ticle-he got around to the ending
about 6 o'clock Friday night, and
phoned our wife that she'd soon be
a widow, for he was coming around
with his shotgun. Postmaster
H. A. Drake, on reading the story
'Thursday evening when we took
the papers to the postoffice, ad-
vised us to take a week off and go
fishing, but we told him there was
too much work to do, and anyway,
we'd been shot at before plenty.
Dan Brooks cut off our credit
at his hardware emporium, but
when we told him we needed five
gallons of paint, he immediately
discovered that we had an excellent

Daily At Ball Park
Many Regulars and Newcomers Out
To Make the Team
Daily practice for te Saints, the
Port St. Joe team in the Gulf Coast
Baseball League, began this week
at the new ball park near the Cen-
tennial Auditorium, with many of
last year's regulars on hand as well
as a host of newcomers anxious to
get in the lineup.
Buster Owens, manager of the
team this year, stated Tuesday that
members of last year's team show-
ing up so far are Leonard Belin,
"Fish" Herring, Dallas Weeks, Ben-
nie Burke, Bert Cox, Hardy David-
son, Bucky Walters, Frank Hannon
and Jimmy Cox. With this nucleus'
he feels that with new players not
yet selected he can put a winning
aggregation in the field.
There has been some talk of pro-
viding lights at the new stadium
for night ball, but as yet nothing
concrete has been developed. Pan-
ama City and Blountstown, both
having teams in the league, already
have lighted fields.
NORTONETTES AND KIWANIS
BASKETBALL TILT TONIGHT
What promises to be a basketball
game that will be talkedabout for
some time will be staged this eve-
ning at 8 o'clock in the Centennial
Auditorium when the Nortonettes,
champs of the Apalachicola Valley
Conference, meet a team made up
of players from the Kiwanis Club.
Admission will be 25c and 50c,
Price of School
Action Taken Due To Closing of
St. Joe Paper Mill
Due to the recent closing of Port
St. Joe's main industrial plant, the
St. Joe Paper Company mill, and
the resulting effect on many fam-
ilies, Principal Marvin Rooks has
decided to reduce the price of plate
lunches with milk, being served at
the local schools, to 15 and 20 cents
beginning next- Monday, for the re-
mainder of the school year.. It is
hoped that this reduction will en-
able all children to continue eating
their noon meal in the lunch room.
The local school has a well-
planned program of food service
that seeks to meet the needs of all
children, and with the-aid of fed-
eral funds, well-balanced meals
with milk have been provided at a
cost of 20 and 25 cents. In addition
to the noon lunch, an early morn-
ing lunch of milk and an afternoon
refresher of fruit juice is served to
meet the needs of the children.
This full program is possible be-
cause of the fine co-operation
among the administratorss of the
program and the efficient manage-
ment in the lunch room. Like any
well run business, every penny the
child pays, every contribution of
money and surplus commodities
from the government is used by
Mrs. H. A. Hardy, the lunch room
manager, to good advantage.
The local school lunch program
is part of the national school lunch
program provided for by the fed-
and everyone is urged to attend, for eral government, and in Gulf county
we feel those men have quite a sur- more than 50 per cent of all chil-
prise in store for them when they dren are being reached by some
tangle with those Amazons. phase of this program.

Vans Working Out of Here Will
Cover Large Area '

The Sinclair Oil Company, which
for some time past has been using
Greensboro as a distribution center
for this area, has transferred its
operations to Port St. Joe and the

neighborhood of 460 tons, arrived
Tuesday aboard the E. R. Kemp.
Sinclair will occupy about half of
the city warehouse and W. J. Maz-
arol of New Orleans will act as

mated that approximately 600 to
700 tons of oils and greases will be
handled monthly, being carried by
huge vans as far as Atlanta and
Birmingham on the morth, Talla-
hassee on the east and Pensacola
on the west. The operations will
start with three vans, and will be
increased to five vans, using eight
drivers, a-ccording to Carl H. Ve-
reen, field representative for the
corporation, who is here working
In addition to Mr. Vereen, three
transportation specialists, Jerry Fis-
ter, Roger Hoi-ne and Mr. Malone,
all of New York, are here this week,
as is R. C. Astin, manager of the
traffic distribution department of
Sinclair's Atlanta office.

For City Well Underway
Everyone knows that the Port St.
Joe Garden Club recently planted
500 camellias in the city park and
last week planted 100 crepe myrtles
on the Fifth Street parkway..
This ip only the beginning of an
ambitious project sponsored by the
club toward beautifying the city,
and it is hoped that within a few
years Port St. Joe will be one of
the most beautiful cities in this
section of the state.
City officials are supporting this
project 100 per cent, and if this
were -not the case, club members
feel they would find it impossible
to undertake such a great respon-
The garden club is asking that
everyone give their co-operation in
the project by not injuring or de-
stroying the shrubs, and the club
feels it can count on every man,
woman and child giving their full-
est co-operation in order that the
club may continue with its work of
beautifying the city.
Fifty redbud trees were received
this week from A. S. Mitchell and
have been allocated to property
owners on the coastal highway.
Other shrubs and trees will be
given property owners in the fu-
[ ture for further beautification.

Our Country 'Right or Wrong
SUBSCRIPTIONS MAY GO UP
As all of you loyal subscribers who have been
taking The Star for the past eleven and a half,
years know, the price has remained at $2.00 a
year-slightly less than four cents per copy. Des-
pite increased costs in paper, ink, equipment and
other necessities that are required to get out a
newspaper; not to mention increased living costs
which must be met if the editor is to continue
to keep up his health in order to continue to is-
sue The Star, the price has not been boosted.
Other publications of all types have increased
their subscription prices-some more than doubl-
ing-but the editor of The Star has always felt
that increased costs should be passed along to
advertisers rather than the readers, since it is the
readers who make it profitable for advertisers
to present their wares through the advertising
However, if a measure now before congress is
made into law, we will be forced to increase the
yearly price of The Star to at least $3.00, and per-
haps more, for this proposed bill would increase
mailing costs by approximately 250 per cent over
a period of two years. So, if you would like to
see the subscription rate of your home town pa-
per remain at its present level you can help ma-
terially by dropping a card or letter to your con-
gressmen and senators up there in Washington,
urging them to vote against the measure.
You have all discovered that you are paying
higher rates for parcel post, air mail, money or-
ders and third class matter, such as Christmas
cards, but do you know why? The reason is the
pay increase granted postal employes recently
by congress, which created a postal deficit. of
around $500,000,000. We're not against this- in-
crease for the postal employes, they deserve it,
hbut we are opposed to the idea of upping costs
.of one class of mail users two to three times to
make up the deficit. Only reason higher rates on
newspaper mailings didn't go, through with in-
creases on other classes of mail was that it re-
quires a special act of congress.
The editor of The Star has often suggested
that the annual postal deficit could be cut ma-

From the Files of The Star
Wood Seated As House Speaker
G. Pierce Wood of Port St. Joe,
representative from Liberty county,
took his seat Tuesday as speaker of
the Florida house of representa-
tives for the 1939 session. He was
chosen for the position at a pre-ses-
sion caucus held at Moon Lake.
Wood was escorted to the rostrum
amid a wave of applause by Repre-
sentatives Lewis of Gulf, Christie
of Duval, and Tomasello of Okecho-
bee, all former speakers of the
First Services At New Church
The first service was held last
Sunday night in the new Episcopal
church recently completed on 6th
Street. Rev. Glion Benson read the
service, after which Judge John
Carter of Marianna gave a short
terially, and perhaps completely eliminated, if
our congressmen and senators were compelled to
pay postage on all the bull they send out under
the franking privilege and if all government de-
partments were likewise compelled topay post-
age on the crap they send out by the bushel.
Every mail brings into The Star office propa-
ganda from the hundreds of government bureaus.
An infinitely small portion of this is informative,
and may appear in the columns of The Star, but
99.9 per cent of it goes direct to the wastebasket,
the greater part of it unopened and unread.
If the government would dispense with such
mailings which are mostly "puffs" for overstaffed
bureaus, they might save enough expense money
to cut down the postal deficit.
' There's one thing sure-if this new schedule of
mailing rates for newspapers goes through, we
won't even take this government publicity out of
the postoffice. We'll simply hand it back to Post-
master Drake and tell him to mark it refused.
Then if the goverAment wants news of draft
notices, bond drives, civil service examinations,
income tax notices, conservation plans, exten-
sion department meetings, AAA schedules and
hundreds of similar notices published it can pay
for them like any other advertiser.
UTAH REJECTS TAX-SUBSIDIZED PILLS
The senate of the Utah state legislature has
gone on record in opposition to government med-
icine. In a niemorial, this legislative body de-
scribed the dangers that are an inescapable part
of compulsory federal health insurance, with all
the attendant political controls and prerogatives
that would come along with it. The editor of
The Star feels that the Utah solons have the right
idea, and we'd like to see the Florida legislature
in the session now underway pass a similar res-
olution. Said the laddiebucks of Utah, in part:
"It is an acknowledged and unquestioned fact
that the general health of the nation is higher
than that of any other nation in the world.
"Free enterprise, individual initiative and free-
dom from government interference are the foun-
dation stones upon which the practice of medi-
,cine and all other great enterprises of this couin-
try have been developed. Government
interference and regimentation in the field of
medicine will destroy the spirit of research and
individual initiative and will eventually result in
a breakdown of the present high standards of
competency now prevalent in the private prac-
tice of medicine in this country."
Westerners have always been as independent
as a hog on ice-we know, because we're one
of the critters-and figure they can take 'care of
themselves without any outside assistance, es-
pecially like this measure, which would make
you a subject for government-subsidized doctors
whether you liked it or not.
We're looking forward to the time when a man
not drawing some kind 6f a pension from the
government will be viewed with suspicion and
not be allowed to move in the politer circles of
talk. The sermon was by Rev. V. C.
Lowery of Marianna. The church

"Paper container manufacturers
over the South are feeling the pinch
of fewer and fewer orders, with the
