Petition To Remove
Trains Granted By
R. R. Commission
Doodlebug To Come Off On-
February First; Freight
Word that the petition of the Ap-
alachicotla Northern Railroad Com-
pans to discontinue operation of
the "Doodlebug" had been granted
by the railroad commission was re-
ceived too late for publication in
The Star last week, and it is with
regret that we inform our readers
that mail, express and passenger
service over the railroad will be
discontinued on February 1.
In granting the petition of the A.
N. to drop Trains 1 and 2 between
this city and Chattahoochee, the
commission pointed out that prac-
tically every point receiving pas-
senger service from the railroad
was also served by a bus line, and
that the average number of passen-
gers carried per trip by the "Doodle-
bug" had dropped to five and that
operation of the trains between St.
Joe and Chattahoochee had been'
carried on at a loss.
In 1945 total revenue from the
two trains between this city and
Chattahoochee in 1945 was $38,-
917.87. and revenue in the first
eight months of 1950 amounted to
521,129.43. Of this amount passed,
ger revenue was S1!,529.': in i945
and $1,933.38 for the 'first eight
months of 1950.. Net operating def-
icits for the same periods, accord-
ing to figures submitted by the rail-
road. were $1,971.S0 for 1945, and
$17,501.19 for the first eight months
"It is quite apparent from the
foregoing tflat the passenger pat-
ronage of these trains is insignifi-
cant," said the commission, "and
that the operation of such trains to
furnish this service is not required
by the public need."
In regard to the handling of mail,

PORT ST. JOE GARDEN CLUB
This is tree planting time. The
Garden Club is urging everyone to
set out trees this year. Since a tree
is a long-time investment, consider
carefully the size and characteris-
tics of a tree before planting.
The leaves of camphor trees are
poisonous to the soil, and so the
leaves should be raked up and
burned or thrown away. They cast
heavy shade and are voracious feed-
ers, so it is practically impossible
to grow grass under them.

"Applicant itself came forward
with no plan or proposal for ex-
press service to be substituted for
the present transportation of ex-
press on said trains in the event its
application should be granted," the
commission said. "It is plain that
no facilities now exist for express
service which can be employed in
lieu of rail transportation. In
t h e circumstances outlined, this
commission believes it would be
contrary to the public interest to
permit applicant to discontinue
completely the operation of Trains
1 and 2 without requiring that ap-
plicant m a k e arrangements with
the express agency for the adequate
handling of express."
Summary of the findings of the
commission, which was voted upon
favorably by Chairman Wilbur C.
King and Commissioner Jerry W.
Carter and opposed by Commis-
sioner Richard A. Mack, follows:
1. That the public need does not
require the passenger service ren-
dered by applicant's Trains 1 and 2
between Chattahoochee and Port
St. Joe and the discontinuance of
said service by such trains will not
be contrary to the public interest;
2. That the handling of mail by
said trains is a matter within the
jurisdiction of the United States
3. That the public need and the
public interest do require express
4. That applicant should not be
permitted to discontinue the opera-
tion of said trains unless and until
applicant has made proper arrange-
ments with the Railway Express
Agency, Inc., for the handling of ex-
press in a manner that is adequate
and compatible with the public in-
5. That applicant should be
granted authority to discontinue the
operation of said trains effective
February 1, 1951. provided that
prior to said date the following con-
ditions have been complied with
fully: (a) That applicant makes
proper arrangements with the Rail-
way Express Agency, Inc., for hand.
ling express in the manner de-
scribed in finding 4, supra; (b)
That the plan or proposal embody-
ing such arrangements be submitted
to this commission for its consider-
ation and rejection or approval, and
(c) That a plan or proposal embody-
ing such arrangements shall have
received the approval of this com-
NOW. In Consideration Thereof.
It is ordered and adjudged by the

Our -Country Right or Wrong
WE TAKE A BACKWARD STEP
It is with a feeling of deep concern that the
residents of Port St. Joe and other communities
served by the Apalachicola Northern Railroad
learn of the decision of the state railroad com-
mission to grant the request of the railroad com-
pany to discontinue operation of Trains 1 and 2
between this city and. Chattahoochee, thereby
doing away with passenger, mail and express ser-
vice throughout the area served by the railroad.
These services provided by a railroad are and
always will be an asset to any area which it may
serve, particularly the. mail and express services.
The passenger service is not so vital, since the
majority of people own cars, and if they are not
in this class, have bus service available;
We understand the A. N. will continue giving
freight service over its line, which, at least, is
something, since industry, present and future, in

6 For Baseball In '51
Panama JCity Sports Writer of Be-
lief That Gulf Coast League
l Will Be Much Stronger
Frank Pericola, sports editor of
the Panama City News-Herald, has
:this to say regarding the 1951 sea-
son of the Gulf Coast League:
Plans are afoot for a stronger
Gulf Coast Baseball League next
:season. Panama City hopes to field
a fighting team, and there are indi-
cations that the other clubs, Port
St. Joe, Apalachicola, Blountstown
and, Wewahitchka, have the same
Wewa was not overly strong last
year, but the folks over by the Dead -
Lakes are fine baseball fans and
will back their club all the. way.
Wewa is the only town without
lights for night ball, and this you
may be sure will be rectified at the
earliest possible moment.
The last time we saw a ball game
in Wewahitchka was on the occa-
sion of the opening of the fishing
season and they had gotten Ace
Adams (then on organized base-
ball's ineligible list for jumping)
down to pitch. It was a great battle.
.I think St. Joe won, but it was a
toughie, and about a thousand fans
were on hand.
Tallahassee was a road club in
the Gulf Coast League last season.
If the Capital City isn't represented
in the Georgia-Florida loop next
season they will have a home park.
Otherwise, Tallahassee will prob-
ably be dropped from the circuit in
favor of another club.
I know there is much sentiment
here for getting Marianna or De-
Funiak Springs into the Gulf Coast
cicuit. Marianna would be a natural
Visit In Tallahassee

Cowart visited in Tallahassee on
Thursday of last week.

Naturally we assume that officials of the A. N.
had very good reasons for discontinuing these
services, and that the state railroad commission
believed they were ample to grant their plea for
abandonment, but we believe that both the rail-
road officials and members of the railroad com-
mission should have taken more into considera-
tion the pleas of the thousands of individuals in Lee, drivel of the Saturday morn-

For nearly half a century the Apalachicola
Northern Railroad has served the people along
its lines well, through good times and bad, and
now "finis" is to be written. It is sad, indeed.
LET YOUR HEART MOVE YOUR HAND
The March of Dimes gets underway in Gulf
county next Monday, January 15.
Public response to the annual fund-raising
drive of the National Foundation for Infantile
Paralysis in previous years has enabled this hu-
manitarian organization to do a magnificent job
in meeting the increasingly widespread polio
The need for an enormously successful March'
of Dimes this year must be fully understood. Not
only was 1950 the second worst polio year on
record, but its timing, immediately following the
worst year, in 1949, has created urgent financial
problems. The patient-care bill alone for the
three-year period 1948-50 took more than $58,-
000,000 in March of Dimes funds-exclusive of
the millions that went to underwrite research,
and education for professional personnel.
Right now, In hospitals, homes and clinics
throughout the country, there are thousands of
boys and girls-and adults, too-who look to the
1951 March of Dimes for continued assistance.
They will get the helping hand they need-only

Governor Fuller Warren's anti-

taking effect. The other day we
dropped into Cooper's Barber Shop
for a shine, and, since we have but
one shoe to shine, and being of
Scotch-Irish descent we hate to
pay "Shine" 10c for one shoe, since
the cost of a two-shoe shine is 15c.
So it has been our custom, with the
co-operation of "Shine," naturally,
to match him 25c or nothing (we
didn't tell him that we inherited a
Leperchaun from our Greatgrand-
father Shields, which accompanied
him to the U. S. A. from Ireland
much against its will, and that in
such matters as this the Leperchaun
sees to it that we will win consist-
ently). Anyway, when he finished
our shine we told him to go ahead
and toss his "lucky" nickel. But he
refused, saying he'd match us some
other time. ... Then it dawned on
us. Deputy Sheriff Marvin Freeman
was in the shop. and "Shine" was
afraid he'd be picked up for violat-
ing the gambling laws. ... We told
Marvin that he'd have to arrest us
both, tossed a quarter into the air
and told "Shine" to call it. He
