River Project To Be of
Inestimable Value To
This Section of State
Speakers At Apalachicola 'Harbor
Day' Event See New Era of
Speakers at the Harbor Day cele-
bration Tuesday in Apalachicola
predicted a new era of industrial
development for central and west
Florida when the $135,659,000 Apa-
waterway project is completed.
U. S. Senator Claude Pepper said
it "will mean immense progress
and prosperity for the Apalachicola
River area in Florida and for the
areas along the Flint and Chatta-
hoochee Rivers in Georgia and Ala-
He listed the advantages of the
huge waterway project, which will
also be of considerable benefit to
Port St. Joe with its fine natural
harbor which is connected to the
Apalachicola River by the' intra-
coastal canal, as:
1. Vast quantities of cheap elec-'
trical power to stimulate industrial
development and provide more jobs.
2. Flood control to improve agri-
cultural production along the three
3. A heavy volume of commerce
for the West Florida Gulf coast.
"A new day is dawning for West
Florida," he said. "A new industrial
opportunity is opening up, and a
better and a more prosperous life
is beckoning to the people."
Representative .ob. Silegs, stated
that the--Aork to build dams, the
first of which is the Jim Woodruff
Dam, already under construction,
and develop the natural resources
of the area "is the greatest water-
way development of the southeast."

In Favor of Keeping

Believe Proposed Discontinuance By Apalachicola North-

Would Affect City Adversely
Following announcement in The Star three weeks ago that the
Apalachicola Northern Railroad Company had petitioned the Flor-
ida Railroad and Public Utilities Commission for permission to
discontinue operation of the "Doodlebug" between this city and
Chattahoochee due to the fact that its operation over the past five
years had resulted in a continually-mounting deficit, residents and
business men of the city, have, in the majority of cases, decided
that such action would be detrimental to the welfare of Port St.
Joe, particularly in regard to mail and express service, since dis-
continuance of the train would automatically eliminate these two

of Ascuncion, Paraguay, for the

"The years of supreme--and dan-
Thus Director H. N. Kirkman of
the Florida Department of Public
Safety describes the 'teens and
early 20's when, based upon miles
driven, the drivers have the highest
accident rate of any group.
'"Teen-age drivers," said Kirk-
man, "have been under an increas-
ing barrage of criticism during the
past few years-criticism which, in
the face of the evidence, seems jus-
"At no time in life does one have
greater, misguided confidence in
his skill, ability and luck than dur-
ing the 'teens," he said. "And it is
this notion that contributes to the
death of about 70 young persons in
Florida annually. Only about 5% of
our drivers are in the 'teen-age
group, and yet this same group is
involved in over 8% of all our acci-
dents. In the 15 to 24-year-old class,
motor vehicle deaths in 1948 were
56% of the accidental death toll for
this age group-a percentage that
statisticians call 'significant,' and
that officials call 'staggering'."
Kirkman pointed out that many
insurance companies, in view of
the rising accident rate among the
young. drivers, have upped their
rates on cars that will be driven oc-
casionally by 'teen-agers. Some
states, Florida included, have also
tried to combat this tendency by
putting the blame squarely on the
shoulders of the parents and mak-
ing them liable for the action of
their children when they are in-

"If the present trend continues,"
Kirkman said, "safe as well as

to get a smearing that will result in
their banishment from the road by
public opinion. By no means are all
young drivers reckless it's just
another case of the minority ruin-

of the Press"
Reports from Jacksonville are
that John H. Perry, owner of a con-
siderable string of daily and weekly
newspapers and radio stations in
Florida, is somewhat worried over
the possibility that he may be the
subject of a federal action based on
a "monopoly of the press" theory.
The thing that upset Perry, ac-
cording to ;reports, was a remark
made recently by Attorney General
J. Howard McGrath,, speaking- be-
fore the National Press Club in
Washington, D. C., who said: "Mon-
opolistic tendencies have made it
impossible in a city of 200,000 to
start a newspaper. What does this
mean to freedom of the press?"
Perry, who is still in the market
for live Florida weeklies, brags in
interviews that he uses them po-
During recent presidential elec-
tions, Perry papers were loaded
with Republican propaganda, and it
is said that Perry had been hope-
ful of ending his active days as a
foreign ambassador had Thomas E.
Dewey been elected.
His- present chief political aim is
said to be unseating U. S. Senator
Claude Pepper and seating "my
boy, Smathers." He apparently is
seeking to recoup from his defeats
in the presidential and guberna-
torial arenas in recent months.

State Forest Service To
Plow Some 8000 Miles
of Protective Fire Lines
Work Being Done for Unprotected
Forests Began In August and
Will End Next March
Protective fire lines for Florida's
unprotected forests will be plowed
a distance equal to one-third around
the world-or more than 8000 miles
Owen R. Douglass, fire control
chief for the Florida Forest Ser
vice, says that the state agency ex
pects to do that much fire-line plow-
ing for private landowners by next
March. The plowing began late in
Protective fire lines have been
important in combatting wild fires,
but improved techniques are mak-

Twelve heavy tractors are used However, the forest service fore-
i sees a continued need for some
to pull two- and four-disc plows fire-line plowing even though the

rows which are generally effective
barriers to the spread of ground
fires. A tractor and plow unit can
average 20 miles of fire lines a day,
but some have made as many as 30
miles in a day.
The 8000-mile total expected to
be plowed this year is well under
that plowed some years back. Ex-
tension of organized forest fire pro-
tection, such as we have in Gulf
county, has caused this. In county
and group unit fire control areas
the standard equipment includes
tractors and plows which are used
in suppression rather than preven-
tion of fires. Less plowing is re-
,uired by doing this. In suppressing
the fires, the tractor operator plows
around the head of the fire, with

organized forest fire protection.
Some inaccessible areas or areas
covered by dense "rough" would be
encircled by plowed fire-lines' in

Our Country Right or Wrong
WHY ALL THE SECRECY?
How many,,_f you readers knew that a school
election was to be held last Tuesday at which,
three trustees were to be elected for terms of
two years and that an assessment of 3 mills for
maintenance of the schools in Gulf county was
to be voted upon by taxpayers?
S. The editor of The Star knew nothing of
Why wasn't this matter placed before the pub-
lic? Is the election of school trustees a furtive
business that has to be handled in such a man-
ner that the voting populace knows little or
nothing about it?
After all, the trustees handle a considerable
amount of the taxpayers' money, and if the tax-
payers feel the trustees are not doing their duty,
they should have the privilege of replacing them.
No mention was made, as far as we know, in
the news columns of the two county papers
that the books were open for qualification of
candidates for trustee. Ordinarily such news re-
leases emanate from the county school superin-
tendent or the chairman of the board.
Of course, we're not saying that the county
school board,'the trustees or the county superin-
tendent have anything to hide-but why all the
GOVERNMENT FIGHTS LOW'COST FOOD
Why has the government started a series of
;anti-trust suits against the Great Atlantic & Pa-
cific Tea Company, which is the largest chain-
:store system in the country? The reasons can be
found in the government lawyers' own words.
They say, to the court: "The very heart of the
government's complaint is, in effect, that the
company used the profits from what the govern-
ment calls its non-retail operations to lower its
retail prices." Then they say: "And the govern-
ment contends by such practices the A&P made
it difficult, if not impossible, for others to com-
pete. Without these advantages which permit
A&P to reduce gross profits, no competitor can
hope to remain long in business."
It doesn't take Attorneys Silas Stone or Cecil
Costin Jr., to understand the meaning of these
words. First of all, it is contended that because
the chain has devised ways and means to reduce
prices to the consumer, it is wicked, and should
The second statement is the most amazing of
all. The government tells the court that no one
.can meet the chain's competition. Yet in every
.community which A&P serves, including Port St.
Joe, there are many other stores. Some of them
are chain-owned and some are individually
owned. They have their own satisfied customers
and they are doing well, as witness the expres-
sions stated in the advertisement on the next
foregoing two pages of this issue of The Star.
New stores are constantly being started-old ones
are growing. To say that any organization can
destroy competition in retail trade, and monopo-
lize the business, is to fly in the face pf the most
In our humble opinion, the government is in
reality saying: "Bigness is so bad that it cannot
be tolerated, even if it brings blessings to the peo-
ple in the form of low food prices." If
this kind of thinking is ever accepted in these
United States, we can kiss our high living stan-
TODAY IS ARMISTICE DAY
Little is heard about Armistice Day since the
end of World War II, but in our opinion this
day is more important today than it was origin-
ally in 1918.
As the editor looks back 31 years to that day
in 1918, which came as'he was lying on his back
in a hospital, it seems that this day is more im-
portant now, since it is a reminder that history
is repeating itself, and unless we beware, we will
again make the samrre mistakes.
We Americans are too trustful, and for that
reason, while we won World War I, we lost the
peace and as a consequence were plunged into
World War II. And it looks as though World
War III is in the making. The pattern of present-
day communist aggression is following the same
lines used by Kaiser Bill and Hitler when they
prepared their drives again:x democracy for
domination of the world.
Today should remind us that we must be on
our toes and maintain a strong national defense
until world-wide peace is assured. If we don't-
well, another generation of the youth of our land
will be offered as a sacrifice on the altar of the
god of war.
GETTING TOO BIG FOR HIS PANTS
In a talk at Orlando, Senator Pepper inveighed
against what he terms the "privileged press." He
said newspapers and magazines cried for reduc-
ing government expenses, but did their utmost
to avoid paying any additional taxes themselves.
Can it be that dear Claude has developed such
an opinion of his "greatness" that he figures he
can be returned to office term after term with-
out the support of at least a couple of newspa-
pers? We know, from the fact that he waited
in the anteroom at the last Democratic conven-
tion for his name to be,placed in nomination,
that he has aspirations for the presidency .
Does he believe that he can gain that seat with-
out the support of the newspapers and nationally
If he does, he's one of the biggest jackasses
we know of. Why, if all the little grass root pa-
pers, like The Star, ganged up on him, his
chances for nomination for the presidency would
be nil. And if he doesn't tone down, that's
exactly what's going to happen.
What we think Pepper had in mind in his talk
at Orlando was that the press is "privileged" to
support or oppose any candidate for public of-
fice, according to its judgment of the candida Le's
fitness for the office And, knowing Claude's
fondness for Joe Stalin and his principles, the
editor of The Star, along with a lot of other pub-
lishers of Florida weeklies, is gqing to use this
"privilege" in next year's political races, includ-
ing that for United States senator.
