County Farmers To Plant
266,000 Pine Seedlings

Fourteen Gulf county farmers
have ordered 266,000 slash pine
seedlings from the Florida Forest
Service to be planted this planting
.season beginning December 1, 1949,
through February 1, 1950, accord-
ing to County Agent Cubie Laird.
Fifty thousand of these trees
were given free by the Interna-
tional Paper Company, and 216,000
were purchased at $2.85 per thou-
sand, delivered.
"This represents one of the larg-
est, if not the largest, plantings in
one season for the county," said
Laird, "and in the not too distant
future, these plantings should pay
handsome dividends to the plant-
ers-with care and protection from
fire."

Returns To Military Academy
Ashley Costin returned Monday
to Gulfport, Miss., to resume his
studies at the Gulf Coast Military
Academy. He is in the football line-

son arrived Sunday from Tallahas-
see to make their home here tem-
porarily with Mr. Johnson's par-
nets, Mr. and Mrs. Joe Johnson. ,

City Will Be Closed
Tight On Labor Day

If you haven't got enough food
in the refrigerator to hold you
over until Tuesday, better dash
down town right now and lay in
some, for the city will be closed
up tight next Monday in observ-
ance of Labor Day.
All business houses of the city
will be closed in observance of
the day, as will The Star office
(we're going to get in one day of
fishing if it kills us).
The county health department
office will also be closed on Mon-
day.
Residents of the city have been
lofxing forward to this long week-
end for months, and most of 'em
plan to go fishing, but if they
haven't reserved a cabin or a boat
on the Dead Lakes they might as
well not figure fishing there un-
less they have their own boat, as
our cousins from Georgia and
Alabama have had reservations
there for the past two months.

safety contest to be conducted by

tle dope on his contest for a week,

Candidates Work

Industriously As

Election Nears


With 1200 Qualified Voters
On Books, Balloting Ex-
pected To Be Heavy

Voters of Port St. Joe will go to
the polls next Tuesday between the
hours of 8 a. m. and 7 p. m. for the
purpose of naming two members
of the city commission and a mayor
for terms of two years each.
The two incumbent commission-
ers whose terms expire, B. B. Conk-
lin and Watson Smith, are both
seeking re-election, Conklin being
opposed by Franklin W. Chandler
and Smith by Clifford J. Tharpe.
Mayor J. L. Sharit, whose term
also expires at this time, is not
seeking re-election, and in an ad-
vertisement in this issue of The
Star states that he understands
there is a movement underway to
write his name in on the ballot, and
begs the voters not to take such ac-
tion, as he definitely does not want
the job and is not seeking it.
The race for mayor-commissioner
lies between Silas R. "Mickey"
Stone, lifelong resident of the city
and rising young attorney, and J,
C. "Jake" Belin, employee of the St.
Joe Paper Company and an active
participant in civic affairs.
All candidates are working like
beavers to gain the good will of the
voting .populace, and are making
house-to-house canvasses- of the
city. Examination- of residences
whose owners- ar- a--,v.y on vaca-
tion finds cards of all candidates
sticking in the door, with the ex-
ception of Watson Smith, who ap-
parently is relying on the gift of
gab rather than the printed word
to put him back in office.
With some 1200 qualified voters
registered, it is expected that ap-
proximately will trek to the polls
Tuesday to express their prefer-
ences. Greatest number of ballots
cast in any previous election was
773.

Now He's Got 'Em!

At a show staged some time
back by the Kiwanis Club, Jack
Hutchins was, asked by John R.
Smith (the Inquiring Reporter)
if the Hutchins family wasn't ex-
pecting a hew arrival.
"We sure are," replied Jack,
"and I hope it's twins."

born to Mr. and Mrs. Hutchison

at 5 Ibs. 21' oz. and 4 Ibs. 153/4

TO THE CITIZENS OF PORT ST JOE

Information has reached me through several citizens that a
number of qualified electors would very likely write my
name in on the ballot of the forthcoming City Election
September 6th for Mayor-Commissioner, While I appre-
ciate tremendously the expression, I sincerely and earn-
estly request that this NOT be done.

I am not a candidate for Mayor-Commissioner, nor a Com-
mission post. I am desirous of being relieved of this re-
sponsibility, and for that reason I did not qualify.

Surely it is a sense of great pride to me that the very fine
and wonderful people of this City have elected and re-
elected me many times to their City Commission, and for
this honor and confidence reposed by the vast majority of
our citizens I am most grateful and thank you from the
bottom of my heart.

It has been my genuine pleasure to work with the Com-
mission composed of persons from practically all walks
of life. We have been considerate of each others views
and truly democratic any decision of importance to your
City has been concurred in unanimously by youi Com-
mission (as the record will reveal).
We have done our best.

It shall be my pleasure to assist in any way possible in the
things that will advance the welfare, happiness, prosper-
ity and security four fine City.

Respectfully,
J. L. SHARIT.

Sheriff Cites Law

Banning Dumping

Garbage On Roads

Asks Co-operation of Resi-
dents In Halting Such
Practice
Sheriff Byrd Parker this week
called attention to a state law pro-
hibiting the dumping of garbage
along the right-of-way of any road.
and asked the co-operation of citi-
zens of Gulf county in halting this
- unsanitary and unsightly practice.
It is understood that the sheriff
and the board of county commis-
sioners have received several com-
plaints recently of such illegal gar-
bage dumping.
Parker said he believed many
persons were unaware that they
'were violating a law when they
dumped garbage on roadsides, or
that they might be punished by
fines. He added that the law pro-
vides for the payment of a reward


for information leading to the ar-
rest and conviction of any violator.
"I am sure there is little willful
violation of this law going on," said
Sheriff Parker, "and I believe that
when this is brought to the atten-
tion of those who have been dis-
posing of their garbage in this il-
legal method, the practice will
stop."
Spend Several Days At Beach
Mr. and Mrs. George L. Colbert of
Cedartown, Ga., and Mr. and Mrs.
George L. Colbert Jr., and daughter
of Fostoria, Ohio. spent several
days last week at Beacon Hill.

Our Country Right or Wrong

PRELUDE TO COMMUNISM
In a recent speech, Winston Churchill had
this to say about the acts of the labor govern-
ment in Britain, and the men who head it; "They
have squandered the reserves and resources
which have been gathered in the past and have
darkened and narrowed the future of every man,
woman and child in this famous island.
"It is all the more amazing that they should
have brought us down like this and given us
such hard times during four years when they
have not only been eating up our savings, but
have enjoyed the enormous advantage of outside
help on a scale never known in the history of
any country in time of peace."
Churchill then observed that the United States
and Canada have loaned and given England
some $7,000,000,000, and added: "Our socialist
spendthrifts and muddlers have dissipated every
overseas asset they could lay their hands on and,
in addition, have exacted and extracted from our
people a higher rate of taxation than was re-
quired at the very height of the war."
While it is true that Britain's most acute prob-
lems stem from forces and events which were
beyond the power of any party to prevent or
control, the fanatic drive toward socialism and
regimentation at any cost, coupled with govern-
ment seizure of such basic enterprises as the coal
mines, the electric industry, banking, and the
rest, has sapped the energy and the will of the
British people, no less than their economic re-
sources. It has almost totally destroyed. incen-
tive. Only the bureaucrats and politicians can
make major decisions. It has turned practically
everyone into a ward of the state, just as your
friend (he ain't ours) Harry Truman is trying
his best to do.
At other times Mr. Churchill has warned that


Britain's present course could end in actual com-
munism. When government takes over all power,
all resources, all the instruments that sustain life,
the stage is set for the dictator-the man on the
white horse. And the police state, backed by
the concentration camp, is created.
What will finally happen to once-great Eng-
land remains to be seen. In the meantime, we
can profit by her tragic example. When we de-
stroy free enterprise and establish socialism, we
directly endanger all the other freedoms too.

SHOW WINDOW OF AMERICA
When refugees from Europe reach New York,
pass through quarantine, and are finally given
the freedom of this country, one of their first
acts, as a rule, is to walk around the streets of
the metropolis and look in the store windows.
Most of them are amazed to the point of speech-
lessness. Never in their lives have they seen such
abundance. It is beyond belief that anyone can
walk into a store and buy a refrigerator, an out-
fit of clothes, an automobile, a load of groceries,
or anything else he wants, and in any quantity
he wants.
Then, when they move on across the conti-
nent, they find, incredible as it seems, that this
abundance is everywhere. In New York the
stores are bigger, and there are more of them, to
serve the needs of millions. But in the small
towns, like Port St. Joe, attractive stores offer
the same kind of goods, and at about the same
prices. All of them are doing their best to at-
tract the buyer and to gain his good will.
The retail store is the show window of Amer-
ica. In the industrial areas vast factories, employ-
ing legions of well-paid workers, produce what
we need and desire. Mass production is an Amer-
ican miracle. Then, to make the cycle complete,
mass distribution brings the flood of goods to our
homes. These two inseparable forces are tile
rocks on which our living standards, which so
amaze the refugees, are based.

RUSSIA WILL STRIKE LATER
(The following editorial is reprinted from The
Star of September 1, 1939.)
Those Russians may not be as dumb as some
people would have us believe.
Sure, they signed a non-aggression pact with
Hitler, but they signed it with a purpose in mind.
If and when Europe goes to war, Russia will
stand by and watch the slaughter, and when the
warring nations have become weakened and sick
of war she will stir up rebellion amongst their
peoples and bring about a social revolution with
the brand of communism on it.
They're not so dumb!

Keep smiling-and buy U..S. Savings Bonds.

Physical Checkup of
Children Urged Prior
To Opening of School

A physical checkup should be a
"must" when preparing children for
the coming school year, says the
state board of health.
Now is the time for children to
make a trip to their physicians and
dentists so that any trouble with
eyes, ears, nose, throat, teeth, etc.,
can be corrected before the opening
of school.
It is particularly important .for
children entering school for the
first time to have their immuniza-
tions against smallpox, diphtheria,
tetanus and whooping cough.
Postponement of a trip to the
doctor or dentist may result in pain
and discomfort for the child, in ad-
dition to loss of time from school.
Parents should remember that a
healthy child makes a 'better stu-
dent.

You can help prevent woods fires
by being careful.

service serial numbers and enlist-
ment and discharge dates; branch
of service; date of birth; insurance

"I will be at the city hall in Port

certain that they have the above in-
formation in order that application
blanks may be completed without
unnecessary delay."

Surprise Party Honors Two
The Home Demonstration Club
entertained Monday afternoon with
a surprise party honoring Mrs. G.
S. Croxton and Mrs. Dick Willis.
'Mrs. Croxton was presented a
going-away gift and Mrs. Willis a
gift remembering that she had just
returned from the hospital a few
days previous. The gifts were se-
lected from the club "gift box," to
which each member contributes a
hand-made article each year.
Present to enjoy this affair with
the honorees and the hostesses,
Mrs. J. C. Price and Mrs. E. L. Ant-
ley, were Mesdames G. E. Mook, H.
A. Braxton, Ella Stebel, Wilson
Armstrong, G. H. Harper, Randolph

Mrs. G. S. Croxton left Tuesday

Mrs. Wilma Revel, county home
demonstration agent; Joe Land,
club council president; Charles
Spears, delegate from Honeyville,
and Mrs. Roland Hardy of Over-
otreet. toattend the state council


meeting being held this week in
Gainesville. Mrs. Croxton will mo-
tor to Green Cove Springs today for
a visit with Mr. and Mrs. Jimmy
Spotts.
Lake Muddy
Lake Wimico was very muddy
this week due to the fact that the
storm last week carried the tide
out so low that the river water
flowed in through the canal. Fish-
ing is not too good there, but the
bayous and other adjacent waters
have yielded fair catches.
Personals
Mrs. C. T. Williams and family
of Philadelphia, Pa., were week-end
guests of Mr. and Mrs. B. A. Pria-
geon and Miss Edna Davis.
Mrs. Jimmy Spotts and two chil-
dren left Tuesday for their home
in Green Cove Springs after a visit
of a week here with her parents,
Mr. and Mrs. Carter Ward. They
were accompanied home by Mrs.
Ward, who will visit for a week.
E. L. Antley is home from the
veterans hospital, and his friends
will be glad to learn that the hos-
pital reports his condition as "not
too serious."
Mr. and Mrs. Otis Hutto of Ma-
con, Ga., were among the out-of-
town fishermen over the week-end.
Ralph Bryant and Frank Barfield
of Macon, Ga., are spending the
week here enjoying the fishing.
Mrs. Ella Stebel and son Bobby
returned Sunday from West Palm
Beach after an extended visit with
her daughter and son-in-law, Mr.
and Mrs. Fred Nelson.

Use Grounding Chain
A grounding chain should be used
on rubber tired farm equipment
when there is no metallic contact
with the ground. A grounding chain
removes the danger of static sparks
which set off an explosion or start a
fire while the fuel tank of the tractor
is being filled. This often otcurs 'with
rubber-tired tractors and combines,
tractors and trailers, and field har-
vesters.

Business Census Of
County Completed

Conducted By U. S. Census. Bureau,
Covers Wholesale, Retail and
Service Trades

A census of business establish-
ments in Gulf county, conducted by
the United States Census Bureau,
a unit of the department of com-
merce, has just been completed,
covering wholesale, retail and serv-
ice trades in this area.
This census is part of a program
begun in the 1920's under sponsor.-
ship of the U. S. Chamber of Com-
merce, the census bureau and inter-
ested business groups.
By the time the new figures are
gathered throughout the nation, a
period of nine years will have
elapsed since the last business cen-
sus. Those nine years have seen
more and bigger changes in the
American business scene than any
similar period of our history, Busi-
ness needs new and up-to-date in-
formation on which to make de-
cisions, to plan operations, set
quotas, locate facilities, design pro-
ducts, plan advertising and find
markets.
There is no way to get business
information except from business
