VOLUME XII PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 1949 NUMBER 50
Opens In County
Joe Mira, County Chairman,
Appeals for More Funds
To Fight Disease
Confidence that the entire com-
munity would give whole-hearted
support to the polio epidemic emer-
gency drive was expressed yester-
day by Joe Mira, chairman of the
Gulf County Chapter of the Na-
tional Foundation for Infantile Par-
alysis, after a meeting of the local
chapter held Wednesday evening in
conjunction with representatives of
the various civic clubs of this city.
The drive, announced Wednesday
by the national foundation presi-
dent, is being held as a last resort
because in no other way can the
national foundation continue to aid
increased numbers of polio patients
without slowing up scientific re-
search and professional education.
It is the first emergency drive in
the history of the fight against
the history of the fight against polio
in the United States, and in Port
St. Joe the civic clubs have volun-
teered to take care of collections.
Also, starting tonight, a collection
will be taken up at 7:30 each night
during the week at the Port Thea-
te by members of the local Boy and
Girl Scout troops.
"Although in Port St. Joe and
Gulf county we've been spared the
- scourge of-polio this year, all of us
are eager to join in providing help
for those who are now feeling its
impact," Mira said. "So far, our
chapter has not had to spend any
money for new cases here. Our
March of Dimes funds are being

Grades and 240 Enrolled In
Enrollment at the Port St. Joe

-cording to County Superintendent
At the close of the second day of

Gulf County Well Represented At
State Gathering Held Last
Week In Gainesville
Gulf County Home Demonstra,
tion Clubs were well represented
at the state council meeting held in
Gainesville last week by Mrs. J. T.
Land, Gulf County Council presi-
dent; Mrs. G. S. Croxton, second
vice-president of the council; Mrs.
Charlie Spears and Mrs. Arthur
Purpose of the meeting was to
plan the home demonstration pro-
gram for 1950 throughout Florida
with each county objective in mind.
Each county gave a detailed report
of what is being done individually,
thereby exchanging ideas to help
strengthen the work. There were
approximately 250 delegates at the
Each phase of home demonstra-
tion work for the 1950 program was
planned by a special committee.
Mrs. Land served on the farm and
home safety committee, and Mrs.
Croxton served as chairman of the
child care and family life commit-
The home demonstration women
were honored by Mrs. Malcolm
Byrnes, National Home Demonstra-
tion Council president, who spent
the entire week guiding the dele-
gates in planning a better program
for next year.
The state home demonstration
staff and the county home demoh-
stration agents worked closely with
the women throughout the week,
training them to become better
homemakers and to better enable
them to meet the conditions of to-
day. Delegates at the meeting repre-
sented the 12,000 club women in
the state, and there are several
times this number being reached
outside the clubs.
The home demonstration women
of Gulf county feel that this was a
most profitable week for them in-
dividually and for the county, and
desire to express their appreciation
to the home demonstration agent,
Mrs. Wilma Revell, for her untiring
efforts in making the week's train-
ing a great success.

Sales Tax Fight
Is Big Issue At
Unless Administration Can
Muster Majority, Session
May Be Drawn Out
The extraordinary session of the
Florida legislature which opened
Wednesday will witness either the
finals or the semi-finals in the sales
tax fight which has gone under-
cover for many years.
Called by Governor Warren to
provide more revenue, the session
will be confined to tax matters un-
less he issues another call extend-
ing the limits of their operations,
or unless two-thirds of the mem-
bers of both houses (most unlikely)
take the bit in their teeth and en-
large the program themselves.
Local bills, by general consent,
may be introduced and passed with-
out hindrance. But the efforts of
one legislative group to open up the
$240,000,000 two-year appropriation
act is expected to provide the first
test of strength.
A special two-house tax commit-
tee has been holding hearings thru-
out the state and plans to submit as
a limited sales tax bill the product
of these public hearings. If the ad-
ministration and the special com-
mittee between them can muster a
majority, the session should end
soon. If not, it might drag on

Bailey Says Full
School Year Slated
Florida's financial condition will
not interfere with a full school term
this year, according to Thomas D.
Bailey, state school superintendent.
He previously said a seven-months
school term, instead of the regular
nine months, was in store unless
the legislature digs up more money
However,' said Bailey, the effect
would not be felt until next year
because counties would be obligated
to employ teachers full time as
long as money was available to
Since the legislature makes two-
year appropriations, the pinch will
come in 1950-51 when, he said, the
counties would have to go in debt.

Our Country Right or Wrong
WATCH OUT FOR THOSE KIDS!
Readin', 'ritin' and arithmeticc time is here again
for the youngsters of Port St. Joe, and once again
we must increase our vigilance while driving-
especially while driving down Long Avenue
from Fifth Street to Sixteenth Street.
School time takes the child away from his
mother's apron strings for a few hours a day,
and during part of that time he is a potential
traffic accident victim unless we adults protect
And right now is when drivers should be most
watchful, for with school just getting underway
many very young children are exposed for the
first time to the dangers of our streets. In spite
of careful teaching by their parents of correct
pedestrian habits, children are still immature in
their thinking, and warnings have very little
meaning to them. Training by parents is im-
portant, but we shouldn't forget that the re-
sponsibility for child safety will always lie heavier
on the shoulders of the motorist than the parents.
In 1948 about 70 children between the ages
of 5 and 14 were killed in motor vehicle acci-
dents in.Fl:,i I .i, :irI many of these deaths hap-
pened because motorists forgot to expect the
unexpected while driving near schools, play-
grounds and residential districts.
Let's not have the death of a child occur in
Port St. Joe this year. When a child's life is at
stake we can't afford the luxury of laxness.
THE LOW DOWN

Editor The Starr:
Today I'll huddle with congress.
They is sum nice guys up there--I
don't like to see 'em bein' taken in
as suckers. Iffen I kin help I wanta
do so. But also I don't wanta be took
fer a sucker either-and by a con-
I got in mind how them there big
munny bills is put in the hopper up
there in Washinton. The Chief
Squeeze in sum department will
say he needs 300 millyun bucks-
when all he actually wants is 200
millyun. And up will jump a con-
gressman and say "to much." So
the Big Squeeze will haw and hem
-and cult off the foney 100 millyun.
That's more like it, sez Mr. Con-
gressman and he tells the re-
porters how he done saved the na-
shun 100 millyun.
Now there is where I cum in-as
*a sucker. Even this here 200 mill-

THE LAST MILE
Herbert Hoover, the only living ex-president
of this nation, has warned that we are blissfully
driving at top speed down the back road to col-
lectivism. He said: "We are on the last mile-
you must give it thought."
Collectivism is the most insidious of all eco-
nomic diseases-it can make fatal headway be-
fore the victim knows just what is happening. It
begins with excessive taxation which, in effect,
confiscates much of the savings and earnings of
the people. And it is always advanced by appeal-
ing schemes whereby the government will as-
sume more and more responsibility for the "wel-
fare" of each individual, and more and more
power is concentrated in the grasping hands of
an expanding bureaucracy, .--
That, as Mr. Hoover said, is precisely what is
happening here. We are carrying onerous taxes
and, in spite of them, we are running huge gov-
ernmental deficits. Every effort to reduce the
cost of government, and .to do away with waste
and duplication and overlapping bureaus and
administrators, is met with fierce resistance.
Then, following'the collectiyist pattern, we are
being sold the "welfare state." If the highest of-
ficials of our government have their way, we
shall be forced to accept an enormously costly
scheme for compulsory government health in-
surance-which is a polite phrase for political
medicine. We shall have cradle-to-the-grave "so-
cial security." Individual responsibility and re-
liance will become things of the past. We shall
pay for these doubtful blessings to the tune of
tens of billions of dollars.
So we have come to the last mile. The great-
est question of the day is whether we shall have
the courage .to stop in time.
Well, the "best men" won in our city election,
and despite what a lot of our citizens may think
and say, the affairs of our city government will
be carried' on in future for the best interests of
our people just as they have in the past.

Cigaret and Gas Tax Okehed
At their meeting Tuesday night

the gasoline and cigaret tax and
both were passed by the following
vote: Gasoline tax, B. W. Eells and
J. L. Sharit, aye; B. A. Pridgeon,

city, and the cigaret tax levies one

A $75,000 plant at East Point,

will be constructed by Florida Agar

tion of agar from seaweed, together
with other chemicals yielded from
marine grasses. The plant will em-

Agar is a chemical /valuable to
the medical and food industries,
and it has more than:a thousand
daily uses. The seaweed in'the shal-
low bays along the Gulf coast of
Florida is productive of a particu-
larly high grade of agar.
The weed is commonly known as
water moss and grows attached to
.oysters and rocks, in shallow or
deep water. It thrives well in heavy

function through the installation of

Oyster Size Statute
Defined By Cabinet
The Florida cabinet has reinter-
preted the law governing the legal
size of oysters.
The law says that oysters meas-
uring less than three inches from
hinge to mouth may not be taken.
George Vathis of Apalachicola,
state conservation supervisor, says
the hinge is so close to the mouth
that "no oyster could be large
The cabinet approved a resolu-
tion interpreting the law to mean
oysters must measure three inches
across the shell from the hinge at
the widest poiit.

The C. F. Hanlon Subdivision is now open for sale
of lots 50x140 feet, approximate size. All lots
face streets or county highway or the Dead Lakes.
Price of lots range from $400 down, mostly $325.
These lots are sold subject to provision that they are

Property on Dead Lakes is now scarce, and in a
few years will not be available except at a pre-
mium price. Better buy a place now in this choice
subdivision. Terms can be arranged if desired.
