"Those were the days when neigh-
bor stood ready to help neighbor, to
join in on mutually helpful activi-
ties, in defense against Indians and
the natural hazards of a sub-tropi-
cal wilderness," he stated.
"This neighborly spirit must ex-
tend from cities, towns and com-
munities to take in the whole state.
In the event of war -or other disas-
ter, the major cities must be pre-
pared to protect their populations.
Florida's inland towns and counties
in turn must be ready to back up
the coastal counties with offers of
help if needed.

Goodwill Representative Speaks At
High School Auditorium Be-
fore Good Crowd
Speaking before a large audience
Monday night gathered in the audi-
torium of the new high school,
James Q. duPont, special represen-
tative of the duPont Company re-
viewed the history of the company
with, as he put it, "a personal
slant." DuPont, who came here un-
der sponsorship of the Port St. Joe
Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs, was in-
troduced by Mayor Jake Belin.
A number of out-of-town visitors
were present to hear the talk, in-
cluding Justice Alto Adams of the
supreme court; Justice Rivers Bu-
ford, retired; Mayor Corey Hendrix
of Apalachicola, Harry Wells of Tal-
lahassee, and Harry Ackerman of
DuPont, who illustrated his talk
with two charts, told many anec-
dotes of the family, explained some
of tlhe early problems of the com-
pany, and how it was started in
1802 when Pierre Samuel duPont
de Nemours and members of his
family came from France and E. I.
duPont went into the business of
making gunpowder on an initial
capital of $36,000, which he had bor-,
rowed, and how the company then
branched out into the manufacture
of dynamite, guncotton and smoke-
Highlight of duPont's talk was
when he told how, in 1902. Alfred
I. duPont "saved the company" by
obtaining permission to buy it from
the older members of the family
and. with his cousins, Pierre and T.
Coleman duPont, negotiated the
transaction with no cash. He also
told of the expansion and various

Labor Seeking Benefit
Hike for State's Jobless
Organized labor in Florida is ask-
ing that unemployment benefits be
increased to a maximum of 430 a
week for 26 weeks, as compared to
the present maximum of $15 a week
for 16 weeks. The recommendation
will be placed before the 1951 legis-
The proposal for the $30 a week
maximum is in line with that rec-
ommended by both the national

boosted to a maximum of $20 for
20 weeks in the 1949 legislature,
but the proposal was bottled up in

City Proposes To
Boost Rates For
Necessary Due To Fact That
Revenue Debentures In
At the regular meeting of the city
commission on January 16 an or-
dinance was introduced providing
for an increase in rates of the wa-
ter and sewer system. It was pointed
out by City Auditor and Clerk Ben
Dickens that rates in the past have
fallen far short of producing suffi-
cient money to pay the interest and
retire the 4%9 water and sewer rev-
enue bonds which were issued to
raise money to construct the pres-
ent water and sewer system in 1936.
Figures were presented showing
that as of January 1 the water and
sewer system was $60,000 in default
on the water and sewer revenue de-
bentures and $23,800 in default on
interest, bringing the total amount
in default to $83,800.
The proposed new rates provide
for an increase in the minimum
sewer charge from 50c to $1.00 and

Proclamation By Mayor J. C.
Belin Urges Support of
The 1951 March of Dimes reached
mid-point this week as efforts con-
tinued to prepare Gulf county and
the nation for the job of fighting
polio in the coming year.
To spur lagging contributors,
Mayor J. C. Belin yesterday issued
a proclamation calling on all resi-
dents of Port St. Joe to assure con-
tinuation of the fight against infan-
tile paralysis by giving unstinted
support to the March of Dimes.
The proclamation disclosed that
bills for polio patient care alone
during 1949-50 took some $47,000,-
000 in Maich of Dimes funds, again
exhausting the epidemic aid fund of
the National Foundation for Infan-
tile Paralysis. ...
Text of the proclamation is as
"WHEREAS, for the third suc-
cessive year the nation has ex-
perienced a very serious polio.epi-
demic, with incidence that ranks
1950 as the second worst polio
year on record; and,
"WHEREAS, the past two years

St Joe Lumber Co.
Officials Refuse To Negotiate With
Organizers of United Con-
The St. Joe Lumber & Export
Company closed down operations
Monday due to a strike of it3 more
than 300 employes.
The Star was informed Wednes-
day by J. P. Fleishel, general man-
ager of the company, that the plant
was being picketed by the United
Construction Workers of America
because it' has not been recognized
as a bargaining unit for the mill
"The union has made no demands
except for recognition," said Flei-
shel, "but we do not intend to recog-
nize it, and are not even consider-
ing negotiations. If the men want
to come back to work, and I under-
stand quite a number of them do,
we will again start operations."
The strike is, to a certain extent,
affecting the economic setup of the
community, since the payroll of the
company comes to about $12,000 a
week, or approximately $2000 a day,

Our Country .. Right or Wrong
That set of the Encyclopedia Britannica that
our wife gave us is sure going to be a life-saver
to us when we're in a jam for something to edi-
For instance, take a guess at the number of
chemical products which have their origin in
coal. We were just reading at random and be-
come interested in the matter.
Unless you're well-infoimed as to this versa-
tile natural resource (which we are now, due to
our perusal of the subject), your guess won't be
within shooting distance of the right figure. The
number of products actually is in excess of 200,-
000, ranging from materials such as nylons arid
the plastics, to medicines such as novocaine and
the fabulous sulfa drugs.
Coal derivaties are used by every person in
Port St. Joe. Thus coal makes a very direct con-
tribution to our living standards, whether we
ever burn a piece of it in its natural state or not.
Of much greater importance at this time is
the fact that coal is one measure of our war po-
tential. The Britannica informs us, for instance,
that the Soviet Union is far below us in its abil-
ity to produce steel. And the reason for that is
insufficient coal. Our enormous steel production
is made possible because the coal industry can
supply the steelmakers with all the coal they can
use-and is ready to step up production almost
overnight if that is needed.
We deduct, therefore, that the strength and
security of any country is largely decided by the
quantity of this versatile mineral that can be

Control Is Costing
Uncle Sam's Efforts To Create Pub-
lic Favor For Projects Run
Into Big Money
The propaganda efforts of Uncle
Sa-m in the year 1949 to create pub-
lic favor for such projects as the
Brannan plan. compulsory health
Insurance and such. cost taxpayers
more than $100.000,000, according
to a Reader's Digest article.
To pay salaries of federal pub-
licity men the treasury shells out
about $1,500,000 a month. To print
the releases of these propaganda
experts costs astleast $4,000,000 a
month, and to mail them takes an-
other $3,000.000. And even
as in The Star office, .90 per cent
of it goes into the wastebasket.
A survey by the house committee
on expenditures of the 80th con-
gress showed that 100 pages of the
New York Times would be required
to print all the handout material re-
ceived by that newspaper from fed-
eral agencies during a single week
-which would be equivalent to ap-
proximately 200 pages in The Star.
"Much of it," the article says, "was
sheer propaganda, designed to in-
fluence public thinking and bring
pressure on congress."
Activities of the department of
agriculture, "where busy bureau-
crats concentrate on selling the
Brannan plan," reveal the vastness
of governmental publicity. The de-
partment has 3,029 county agricul-
tural associations throughout the
nation: 9.087 county committeemen
and 97.529 community committee-
men. More than $200,000,000 is ap-
propriated annually for agriculture
personnel. That a substantial part
of this sum is used for publicity is
evident by the report of the house
committee on expenditures after a
nine-month study. The agriculture
department issued in that period
1,998 press releases, 120,000 copies
of its weekly clipsheet, 837 radio
scripts and 17 films."
The social security administration
Is spending millions annually on
publicity, the article says. It and
other agencies under federal secur-
ity concentrate on promoting social-
ized medicine. Employes of these
agencies fly abroad at public ex-
pense "to study how socialized med-
icine was put across in other na-
'tions, and gather arguments to per-
suade congress and the American
public to adopt it."
Congressmen who criticize federal
propaganda point out that they are
not objecting to legitimate informa-
tion functions of the government.
Administrators must give their'opin-
ions to congress when requested.
But this provision of the law has
been subverted to imply the right
to persuade citizens, at government
expense, to pressure their congress-
men to vote for this or that act or

Getting Into Big
Relief for Everybody But the
Poor Taxpayer Goes
By RUSSELL KAY
Digging into Florida's welfare
setup. Tampa Tribune staff writer
J. A. Murray comes up with some
interesting figures that ought to
provide plenty of food for thought
in the face of skyrocketing living.
costs and steadily mounting taxes.
The figures show that the aged,
the blind and mothers of children
in Florida receive less than the na-
tional average, but they also show
that the people are paying about 50
per cent more than the national av-
erage for welfare.
The figures also show that the to-
tal payments have increased seven
times in the past decade. They also
reveal that more than half of the
people in Florida over 65 years of
age are on welfare or social secur-
ity rolls, compared with less than
40 per cent nationally. A higher
number of Floridians are receiving
aid than in any other state but
From the standpoint of ability to
pay, Florida taxpayers are doing
more now for welfare than most
other states. In one county, Murray
points out, 86 per cent of the resi-
dents over 65 years of age are on
the rolls. Eighty out of every 1000
are on the rolls for dependent chil-
dren-more than twice the national
And to make matters worse, while
relief for just about anybody and
everybody goes merrily on, there is
no relief in sight for the taxpayer
who is footing the bill. In Florida
the number of people going on re-
lief rolls is growing twice as fast as
the national average, which has
caused Florida to be termed "The
While negroes comprise only 23
per cent of this state's population,
it is revealed that about 60 per cent
of the children on relief are- ne-
groes. Only one state in the nation,
Pennsylvania. has more blind peo-
ple on the rolls than Florida. An in-
teresting case in this connection
came to light not long ago when -a
