Back in September of 1949, when
the-Atlantic Gulf Natural Gas Comn-

a gas pipeline into this section of
the nation, city officials of Port St.
Joe, co-operating with the concern,
made a survey of the city and ad-
jacent territory to discover whe-
ther it would be practical to bring
natural gas into the community, the
city to operate its own distribution

indicated that such a project should

City Dads To Consider
Delinquent Tax Sale
Will Also Study Refunding of Wa-

Die to the fact that but' three
members of the city commission
were present at the regularly sched-
uled meeting Tuesday night, it was
decided to call a special meeting
Wednesday night, April 11, at 7:30
to take up the matter of refunding
the present water and sewer reve-
nue debentures, possible amend-
ments to the city charter and the
matter of delinquent taxes.
It was brought out that property
owners are delinquent in the mat-
ter of paying their taxes to the
tune of approximately $7,800, some
of which goes back as far as 1938.
A public tax sale to bring these de-
liquent taxes into the city treasury
will be one of the main matters to
be discussed at next Wednesday's
Mayor Jake Belin reported that
he and Commissioner F. W. Chand-
ler, who is in charge of the fire de-
partment, met with the board of
.county commissioners Tuesday in
an attempt to have funds allocated
to the city as reimbursement for
cost of providing fire protection
outside the city limits. A. special
bill was passed by the legislature
in 1949 which levied a half-mill on
property south of the canal outside
the city limits for this purpose, but
was only for a period of one year.
The city received $"86 in 1950 from
this levy, but since that time no

Kiwanis Hears Talk On
Speaker From Tyndall Field Says
Civic-Minded Citizens Owe
Debt To Community
By HARRY McKNIGHT
Guest speaker at the Wednesday
noon meeting of the Kiwanis Club
held in the Hotel St. Joe dining
room was S. W. Gunnoe of Tyndall
Field, who was introducediby Glenn

it was only recently that Glenn dis-
covered he was stationed at Tyn-

A district officer of Lions Inter-
national, Gunnoe delighted Kiwan-
ians with his ready wit-and friendly
personality. His subject, "Where
We Stand," was designed strictly
for clubmen and others who feel
civic responsibility. Emphasis was
placed upon the individual's per-
sonal debt of service to the com-
munity, to make it a place that is
"fit to bring up our children in."
Mr. Gunnoe paused to give praise
to the Kiwanis Florida district for
its "Marialina Plan." "That.is some-
thing that Kiwanis can proudly beat
its chest about fpr time ad infini-
turii, and enough praise can never
be saicl about it," he stated. The

and developed by the Marianna club

Touching on the present infla-
tion, Warren said that "since most
Florida families, because of exor-
bitantly inflated prices, are barely
able to purchase the necessities of
life, it would be almost confisca-
tory to impose additional taxes
on them, and since inflated prices
are producing fortunes for a few
and misfortunes for many, I recom-
mend that this legislature enact
appropriate legislation to control
prices during this emergency."
He reviewed the achievements of
the past two years in state depart-
ments under his general super-
vision, recommended legislation im-
plementing the criminal laws but
did not detail his suggestions, urged
the lawmakers to provide assist-
ance for the aged, the dependent
child and the blind "in amounts suf-
ficient to provide the necessities
of life," and recommended the man-
datory teaching of "the principles
of democracy" in high schools.
He did not touch upon the addi-
tional financing of schools to carry
out existing formulae of the 1947
minimum foundation program, ,the
budget commission having disposed
of this problem in a $21,000,000
"footnote" to the budget recom-
mendations for education.
In conclusion, Warren stated he
was confident that Florida "will be
an even greater state when this
session has completed its service."

St. Joe's Homemakers
Now Can Have Extra
Vacation Each Year
Study Shows Shopping But Twice
Weekly and Using Refrigerator
Saves Much Time
Each Port St. Joe housewife can
get an extra vacation of more than
a week from household activities
A little more than seven full days
in the 365 could be added to the sible with the old icebox which
leisure time of every homemaker long ago made necessary both
in our city if she would modernize
her food shopping -habits, according
to a recent study.
The research disclosed that most
of Florida's 516,253 housewives
shop for groceries every day, a
staggering total of 187,916,092
hours, or approximately 7,743,795
days. By shopping only twice a
week for food, which now is possible
because modern refrigerators can
hold more than a week's supply of
food at a time, each housewife
could reduce grocery shopping
time by half. Whereas every-day
shopping requires an estimated
15 full days a year of each home-
maker, the twice-a-week system
frequent shopping and "loading up"
for the week-end.
The error of every-day shopping
is most prevalent among city home-
makers, the research showed,
because of the around-the-corner
accessibility of stores. Suburban
dwellers have learned to buy foods
twice or three times a week, and
the rural Saturday shopping habit

flaws in women's food shopping
habits. For example, 66 per cent
waste valuable energy by concen-

could more easily shop during the
first three days of the week when
stores are less crowded. One
reason advanced for the house-

ONE TIME FOR ENTIRE COUNTY?
Panama Citians from time to time have talked
of going to eastern standard time from the pres-
ent central standard time in order to be more in
conformity with the greater part of the state. In
fact, they have been suggesting that the eastern
time zone be extended to take in all of North-
west Florida.. which seems to be a pretty
However, regardless of what our neighbors on
the west do or decide to do, we would like to
suggest that some organization, or organizations
-the Kiwanis Clubs of Port St. Joe and Wewa-
hitchka, for instance-get on the ball.and start a
movement for the promulgation of some kind of
bill, local or otherwise, to be submitted to the
present, legislative session to yank the northern
portion of Gulf county out of the central time
zone and place it in the eastern zone.
At times, as we all know, it is very confusing
to residents of Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka to
have our city on eastern time and the county seat
metropolis on central time, And we have
been told by any number of residents of Panama
City that it is even more confusing to them when
they have business to. transact in this neck-o' the
woods, t6 discover that Port St. Joe has one time
and Wewahitchka another. And traveling
men they cuss the situation to high heaven.

TEN YEARS AGO
From the Files of The Star
Mystified By Pipeline Delay
Robert C. Wilson, petroleum con-
sultant in the office of production
management, Washington, D. C.,
said last Friday it was "difficult to
understand" the Georgia legisla-
ture's unwillingness to pass enabl-
ing legislation to permit the com-
pletion of the Southeastern Pipe-
line Corporation's line from Port
St. Joe to Chattanooga, Tenn., thru
the state. Immediate completion of
the line as a preparedness measure
has-been recommended by the pres-
ident and the secretaries of war,
navy and interior.
Miss Brownie Miller Carter, daugh-
ter of Mr. and Mrs. Thos. R. L. Car-
ter, and Dr J.,.:. Robert Norton
of this city, son-of Mrs. J. H. Nor-
ton of Harrison, Ark., were married
at 11 o'clock Saturday morning at
the beach home of the bride's par-
ents with Rev. W., A. Daniels of the
Presbyterian Church officiating.
White Named Legion Commander
Counting of the mail votes Mon-
day night by the election committee
of Gulf County Post 116, American

of Wewahitchka 'had been elected
as commander; T. M. Schneider,
first vice-commander; C. A. Lup-
ton, second vice-commander; W. HI.
Wellington, third vice-commander,
and Clarence Pridgeon re-elected as
finance officer. C. H. Johnson was

OPEN THE ROLLS
Florida welfare rolls may be loaded down with
chislers, but then, of course, there is the bare pos-
sibility that such is -not the case. Fortunately,
there is a good way to find out the truth about
the situation, and that is for the legislature to
challenge so-called federal disapproval and open
the rolls for the inspection of anyone who wants
to have a look.
There are those who pretend that the rolls, like
Caesar's wife, are above reproach, but that does
not appear to be the general opinion throughout
Florida. It has also been claimed that opening of
the rolls would be embarrassing to many persons
receiving relief. Such a course would certainly
prove embarrassing to the chiselers and the peo-
ple who got them on the rolls in the first place.
Receiving relief from governmental agencies is
nothing new, and every editor in Florida can
look back over the files of 40 and 50 years ago
and find that the county commissioners were pay-
ing small pensions to certain residents. Many of
these were called mothers'. pensions, and it was
not unusual for the names to be published in the
Even today there is no restriction to publishing
the names of persons getting relief payments from
DeSoto and other counties. The appeals are acted
upon in open meetings, and if a reporter wants to
take down the names and publish them, there is
no law against such a course. Newspapers sel-
dom publish these names, because it is generally
agreed that persons getting the money really
But, welfare,rolls are sacred, and as such are
closed to the public. The legislature should rem-
edy this, and make the rolls open for the inspec-
tion of duly authorized agencies, even at the risk
of arousing the ire of some Washington bureau-
If the wage earner is paying too much taxes,
for he pays all, it is because the people he elects
to the legislature and congress are spending too
much. The remedy lies in the wage earner's
hands. He can change the tune. Instead of call-
ing for more and more services from the state, he
