*Among other matters taken up by

land company representative.

COSTING'S DEPARTMENT STORE OBSERVING 30TH ANNIVERSARY
Beginning: today and running through July 24, the Costin Department Store is celebrating the 30th an-
aniversary of its founding with a big sale. Costin's was established in July of 1920 in the 'building on
Monument Avenue now know as the Shirey Apartments, the stock consisting of groceries, meats, hard-
ware, dry goods, furniture and caskets. The store was moved a few years later to the building now occu-
pied by the Quality Grocery and the St. Joe Hardware, a sideline of gasoline and oils being added at that
time. As the town grew there was a need for more space, so the present building you see above was con-
structed and the line of dry goods moved into the new structure. Port St. Joe owes much to C. G. Costin
for the service he has always given the citizens of this community, not to mention his untiring efforts
to serve in civic affairs and his willingness to always lend a helping hand to those in need. May we offer
congratulations on his long years of service and bid him Godspeed in the future for success and happiness.

The standing room only sign was
hung out last Friday night at the
local ball park as a capacity crowd
gathered to see an exhibition game
between Port St. Joe and Apalachi-
cola under the new lights installed
at the park.
The Saints came out victorious
with a 6-0 win over the Oystermen,
although the game was called in
the sixth inning due to rain. Bob
Weisenbach and Jimmy Schantel
hurled for the Saints, limiting the
visitors to four hits. Martinez, the
Cuban moundsman for Apalachi-
cola, also allowed but four hits.

The Saints scored the first run
of the game in the third frame
when Calhoun was hit for a walk,
and Lambert and Price were both

Calhoun came home after the catch

to center field.

Benefield banged out a three-bagger

'The Oystermen were in scoring

It was still 1-1 in the bottom of
the ninth when Belin came to bat
with Houser on first and poled out
a two-base hit to right 'field-yep,

Gulf county is scheduled to re-

this year. This represents the state's
portion of state aid given under the
minimum foundation program based
on estimates on enrollment and
teacher qualifications made by Su-

state department of education.
Statewide, the program is tenta-
tively estimated at $51,576,739 for
the year. That is $718,261 less than
the legislative appropriation, but

Our Country Right or Wrong
A SLIGHT 'TOUCH' OF TAXES
The editor of The Star doesn't consider him-
self the repository of all knowledge, and neither
can he classify himself in the moronic or idiotic
group. We feel that we have control of a few
more words than the average individual-which
really is a necessity even in editing a country
newspaper like The Star.
We try to increase our store of knowledge all
the time-in fact, we have to-and the other day
we ran across a bit of knowledge that really in-
trigued us. It was the fact that the word "tax,"
with which we are all so familiar, is derived from
a Latin slang term that means "touch." It origi-
nated during the last 500 years of the Roman
Empire's existence, and anyone who has studied
ancient history knows that the average Roman
citizen was "touched" pretty regularly and quite
heavily, just as we are today. .... In fact under
your friend (he ain't ours) Truman it is getting
to resemble more of a push than a touch.
We can easily sympathize with the attitude of

In U.S. In Number
Of Woods Fires
Mississippi Leads In Number
Fires; Oklahoma Leads
In Area Burned
Florida holds the unenviable po-
sition of being second among the
nation's states in number of woods
fires and area burned. This is in-
dicated in the forest fire statistics
for 1949 just released by the U. S.
The records reveal that last year
Florida had 30,157 woods fires that
burned an area of 3,216,301 acres.
Only Mississippi had a worse rec-
,ord in number of fires. Figures
show that Mississippi had 46,358
woods fires. Oklahoma led the na-
tion in area burned with 3,804,409
In amount of damages from the
woods fires, Florida ranked fourth
with $4,499,401 in damages. Mis-
sissippi was first with $12,627,836,
Georgia was second with $8,566,544
.and Oklahoma was third with $5,-
The report showed that Florida
had 47.3 per cent of its 22,886,904
acres of forest land under protec-
tion, or approximately 10,821,667
acre~. This places Florida in the
position of having the second low-
est percentage of its forest lands
under .protection. Oklahoma had the
lowest percentage with 35.1 per
cent, or 3,576,212 acres.

The facilities now being used at
Marianna for the Northwest Flor-

converted to the convalescent cen-

area is built in Tallahassee.
"At the present time we have a
long waiting list of patients need-
ing admission to our tuberculosis
sanatoriums," said Dr. Anderson.
"Why are they not admitted? To a
great extent it is due to the fact
that chronic ambulatory patients in
these institutions are not ready "to
return to their home community.
They are either sources of infection
or they are physically or emotion-
ally unable to cope with the com-
munity setup. The only solution at
present is to keep these patients in
the sanatorium as long as possible
to prevent them from breaking
down again and infecting others.
"It is expensive to keep a' sana-
torium bed occupied by a chronic

Study Will Accumulate Large
,Ai~punt of Facts and
'Last week the St. Joe Motor Co.,
in co-operation with the Ford Mo-
tor Co., joined in launching a na-
tionwide "Ford ,Truck Economy
Run," :a comprehensive truck oper-
ating study that will cover a six-
month period ending December 31,
1950, according to Vic Anderson.
The economy run, said Vic, will
include thousands of truck owners
all over America who will keep
complete day-to-day records of their
actual truck operations, including
every mile traveled, every load car-
ried, every gallon of gas and oil
,consumed, and total repairs and
Robert Bellows of the Gulf Hard-
-ware & Supply Co. is Port St. Joe's
.entrant in the economy run, said
Anderson. Bellows' truck, a Ford
F-5 flat-bed model, can be identi-
fied by the orange and black signs
which are. mounted on all trucks
throughout the nation that are par-
ticipating in the run.
BellpWs. w~ts selected because he
as operate trui s in Port St. Joe
for anore than 12 years and because
of his experience and familiarity
with trucking problems.
Every Ford truck model and all
truck-using vocations will be rep-
resented in the economy run in suf-
ificient numbers, Anderson declared,
-so that results are expected to dem-
.onstrate not only the economy of
Ford truck operation, but to estab-
lish a realistic "yardstick" of truck
.operating economy for 411 truck-
-using industries as well.

Knight, and his talk, aimed at all
business and professional people,
was acclaimed as both timely and
.stimulating by those hearing him.
"The duPont slogan, 'A Better
World Through Chemistry,' actually
is hardly applicable to the world of
trade and business," said Dr. Freid.
"The same is true of most other
advertising slogans. We all know
that a better world and better busi-
ness is achieved by and through
people." He elaborated upon this
'statement by showing how good
-business and lasting public friend-
ship is realized by the man who
learns how to make friends with
. his customers, respects their wishes
and lends an understanding ear to
their buying problems.
"The old saying, 'A smile begets
a smile,' cn be practiced to very
good advantage by all of us, in our
business relations, and a sour dis-
position can soon drive away many
potential satisfied, customers," the
speaker pointed out. '
Dr. Freid stated that it is the pur-
'-.pose of the air university to make
its students leaders of men and to
teach them to win and hold the re-
spect of the men they cominand
and work with.

Do You Want To Cut
Your Federal Taxes?
your W-ste Taxes
No reasonable man questions the
need for taxes to pay the cost of
governmen~lr services. Everyone
should be killing to pay a fair
share of, his income forf'that pur-
pose. But nobody wants to under-
write extravagance--in the home.
in business or in government.
The -bi-partisan Commisjon on
Organization of the Executive
Branch of the Government, created
by Congress with the approval of
President Truman and headed by
former President Hoover, has pro-
vided a chart for the elimination
of governmental extravagance and
This past year, because of dup-
lication and overlapping in the
Armed Services we wasted about
one billion dollars out of the fifteen
billion spent for National Security.
In 1948 two agencies planned to
build the same dam in nearly the
same place at Hell's Canyon, Idaho.
Each set of plans cost about $250,-
000. The plhns differed by approxi-
mately 75 million dollars in esti-
mated cost of erection.
It now costs the Post Office De-
partment two and a half cents to

It takea more than $10 worth of
paper work to complete a govern-
inental purchase order. For example,
by the time the necessary paper
work is completed, a 50 typewriter
ribbon costs the taxpayer about $1U.
Turnover of labor is recognized
by all industry as expensive. Yet
in the Federal Government labor
turnover runs about 25 per cent, a
rate much higher than any private
business could stand. This means
that every year approximately
500,000 either leave or enter a gov-
ernment job. The personnelpsystem
is clogged with red tape. The best
men leave because of the low pay
scale, and the inefficient cannot
easily be discharged.'
If enacted into law, the Com-
mission recommendation to remedy
these and other defectsin conduct-
ing our Federal business would save
the taxpayer three to four billion
dollars a year.

Skin Condition Due To Dog and,
Cat Hookworm; Extremely
Hard To Cure
The combination of brief swim
suits and pet animals running loose
on bathing beaches can produce a
skin condition that's both definitely
aggravating and hard to cure, ac-
cording to the state health, board.
The skin condition is due to dog
and cat hookworm that infests a
highly percentage of these animals
and which is spread to people who
walk or lie on infected ground.
Dog and cat hookworms do not
go into the inner body of man, but
they do produce a skin disease
known by the medical term "larva
migrans," and generally referred
to as "creeping eruption."
When the dogs or cats who have
this particular type of hookworm
soil the ground where people play
or work, some of the hookworm
larvae enter the skin, making a
reddish blister at the point of en-
trance. These larvae move between
the layers of the skin-sometimes
as much as two or three inches a
day-and produce a reddened path-
way. This itches intensely and of-
ten when scratched, becomes in-
It is quite difficult to cure, and
if you don't believe it, just ask Joe
Ferrell, who had it recently. He
was shot so full of dog vaccine
that he went around barking for
The hookworm larvae can live
many days in Florida's sun-warmed
sands, lying in wait for the un-
wary, and since the modern bath-
ing and sunsuits are designed for
brevity, the risk of infection is
greatly multiplied, because much
more epidermis is exposed.
