.Defense Production Administration
Grants Certificate of Neces-

Word was received Monday that
| the defense production administra-
tion had granted a certificate of ne-
cessity to the St. Joe Paper Com-
pany for its proposed $24,000,000
plant expansion.
Plant officials here informed The
Star that while the expansion of fa-
cilities will add a considerable num-
ber of workers, it will not increase
the number by 500, as Congress-
man Bob Sikes was quoted as say-
ing in an Associated Press story
from Washington.
While the complete expansion
plan has not yet been put on paper,
AIGE it will include increasing the out-
meri- put of the present paper-making
f Mr. unit by installing dryers capable
Mel of handling higher steam pressure,

Sat- pacity to handle the increased out-

Residents of Community Invited To
Open House arid Silver Tea
.At Municipal Hospital

Citizens of Port St. Joe and vi-
cinity will have an opportunity to
visit the municipal hospital on May
11 from 3 to 6 p. m., at which time
National Hospital BIay, will.--be ob-
served. .
Members of the Hospital Auxili-
ary will be on hand to show guests
through the hospital, and punch and
cookies will be served on the porch.
Those who care to make a dona-
tion for continued improvements
may do so. Since the hospital is
owned and operated by the citizens
of St. Joe, it is hoped that many
will take the opportunity of observ-
ing just how their tax money and
donations are being spent.
Mrs. Robert Tapper has rightly
been called the founder of the Hos-
pital Auxiliary. Through her efforts
a group of 20 members, Which con-
sisted of equal membership from
the local churches, met one year
ago to form a much-needed'. organi-
zation to work for improvements at
the hospital.
The accomplishments have been
far greater than anyone. antici-
pated. Funds amounting to $970.35
were received from dues, donations
from the silver tea of 1950, income
from the weekly rummage sale and
proceeds from Mrs. Joseph Dowd's
sale of personal record albums.

fifth Monday stewardship service.

followed with the scripture reading
by Mrs. Homer Lovett from II Cor.

J. Keels.
Mrs. Lovett then introduced Dr.

returned medical missionary from
Africa, who is home on furlough.
Dr. Canning, in a most unique way.
told of his work among the Urhobo
tribe (of which he was made chief)
in the village of Eku. He told of the
Baptist hospital he had helped to
build which has 85 beds and is. up-
to-date and modern in every re-
spect. He said it would compare
with our own hospital here in Port
St. Joe. The hospital was built by
donations from the W. M. U. or-
ganizations of the Baptist denomi-
nation.
The speaker told of the natives'
customs and superstitions, and lie
spoke of the wedding 'ceremony
that was held when Mrs. Canning
joined him in Africa in 1947. A
huge fan made of. animal skins was
appropriately inscribed with the
wedding date and presented them.
He displayed the tribal robe, shoes,
cap, fans and other regalia and ar-.
ticles pertaining to the rights of a
chief. Pictures of some of the na-
tives were shown, as well as a
fancywork cloth with an inscription
of the love the natives had for he
and Mrs. Canning, which was pre-
sented to them on their departure,
telling what their Christian life had
been to them. Various carvings of
ebony were also exhibited by the
speaker.
Dr. Canning has helped in the
building of the Obagie Baptist
Church in the village of Eku.
Dr. Canning was thanked for a
wonderful afternoon, after which
the meeting was closed by the pres-
ident, Mrs. E. C. Cason .

Our Country Right or Wrong

ASININE! s
At a recent hearing before the federal power
commissioltr the department of the interior asked
that a Virginia private utility be denied permis-
sion to build a power dam. During the course of
the argument it was pointed out that the resi-
dents of the region wanted the utility to build
the dam because, among other reasons, it would
pay taxes, while if the dam were built and the
power produced by a government agency, it
would be tax free. In answer to this, the attorney
for the department of the interior said blithely
that the utility "doesn't pay the taxes; the $713,-
000 they turned over to the government last year
was actually paid by the consumerss"
Of this, the Scotland Neck (N. C.) Common-
.wealth observed: "That was clearly an asinine
statement." For, if the government attorney is
right, no enterprise pays taxes-not the motor
manufacturer, not the oil company, not the cor-
ner store, not the farmer. It just collects the

The U. S. supreme court held

ber of square miles to its present

money from the customers and gives government
a part of it.
Reasoning on from this point, it is now clear
that we need not worry at all when government
destroys taxpaying industry. Let the government
. run the farms, the stores, the newspapers, the
factories-everything. After all, if the government
is to supply your power, it could just as logically
supply your shoes, your food, your radio pro-
grams and your weekly issue of The Star. And
then what would we have? The answer can be
expressed in one word: Communism.
The Scotland Neck Commonwealth also said
that the attorney's argument "is about the most
absurd ever advanced as an excuse for govern-
ment ownership and operation." To this
the editor of The Star says: Amen!

Finally got around to going down
and talking with. Gannon Buzzett,
new operator of 'Miller's Drug Em-
porium. He's a very likeable
sorta cuss, but the thing we liked
about him best was that he is a
firm believer in trading at home,
holding the unique theory, which a
considerable number of other busi-
nessmen of the city don't seem to
be able to understand, that if you
spend your' money with your fel-
low townsmen instead of sending it
off to mail order houses, that you
will have ah opportunity to get an-
other crack at it from time to time.
. The young man has a jolly
wife and three handsome children,
and we feel that he and his family
will be an asset to Port St. Joe.

vate column in the Washington

county may not know it at this set-
ting, but. our bet is he will find it
out-and plenty, before the present
session of the legislature adjourns
and is recorded into the 191 his-

"It seems that the representative
from Gulf county had a brainstorm.
But he no doubt was storming in
the minority.
"Yes, the minority.
"He suggested-and even went so
far as to propose a bill to that end
-that gambling in Florida-includ-

"Now, he may have a point there-
and it may be the thing to do.
But-t-t-t-t, who ever heard of out-
lawing fourteen million dollars?
That's just what his bill would pro-
pose in more than so many words
and in a round-about way-for the

Shivers Won't Run
For Either House

Chipley Hotelman Against "Rota-
tion" of Senatorship In
25th District

Acting to include himself out of
several choice rumors making the
rounds, Senator Olin G. Shivers has.
declared he won't run for represen-
tative next year from Washington
county.
Neither will he be a candidate
for another term as 25th District
state senator. Shivers says.
In an interview, Shivers said he
would step down from his senate
job to permit Gulf county to fill
the post for the next four years.
Senators in this district are
elected by an unofficial "rotation"
system. Each county, by custom.
gets a regular turn. Counties in the
districtare Washington, Gulf, Bay,
and Calhoun. The senatorship has
rotated among them in succession
for many years.
Washington county's lazt turn be-
fore now was in 1932. and Shivers
was then elected for his first term.
J. L. Sharit of Gulf. Frank Adalns
of Calhoun and Carl Gray of Bay
were the next three senators. When
Washington county's turn came
around again in 1948, Shivers was
again elected.
Despite his decision not to run.
Shivers doesn't think the rotation
scheme is a good idea.
"By limiting a senator to one
term, our district sacrifices experi-
ence and seniority that senators
from other districts are permitted
to accumulate," Shivers explained.
But he says he feels that those
disadvantages won't apply during
the next four years,-since'"the pros-
pective Gulf county candidates I
have heard mentioned are men of
experience and ability.'"
Former Senator J.- L. Sharit and
Representative George Tapper are

, What Happened Last
By J. KENNET

As the legislature moved through
the fifth week of its nine-week ses-
sion, there was little money in sight
for increasing state spending, and
little inclination to provide it.
The senate has passed an expan-
sion of the 3% sales tax law, to
bring in an estimated $17,500,000
more per year. This would be
given to schools. But the bill still
rests in the bosom of the house
finance committee whose chairman
has scarcely started hearings on it.
The controlling group in the house
is working night and day to pare
present state spending by enough-
possibly $20,000.000 to finance
-common school expansion. If they
can do that, it is believed the re-
vision of the sales tax will be de-
feated, an appropriations bill call-
ing for no new taxes produced, and
then they will leave to the senate
the decision of whether to spend
more and tax more.
Several Matters Settled
Apparently settled in the 1951
legislature are such pre-session sub-
jects as the'following:
Voting by 18-year-olds-they won't.
Abolishing the fish and game
commission-they won't.
All women subject to jury duty-
they won't be.
Taxing homesteads for schools--
they will not be.
Unmasking the Ku Klux Klan-
it will be.
Setting a maximum automobile
speed limit-it won't be.

ters. Civil defense bills have been
sent to subcommittees for further
study.
Pointing to the fact that in West
Florida, Eglin Field, Tyndall Field
and the great naval air station at
Pensacola make this section of the
state a prime target for an enemy
attack, Wright said the tardiness of
this legislature to provide ade-
quately for the safety of the civil-
ians may lead to one of the great
tragedies of these times.
State Tp Regulate Utilities
After several days of intermittent
debate, the Florida senate has ap-
proved a house bill to put regula-
tion of privately owned electric and
gas companies under the state rail-
road and public utilities cdommis-
sion. The bill was sponsored by
Rep. Butler Dowda of Putnam,
George Tapper of Gulf and" James
Sweeney of Volusia in the house.
Efforts of Sen. Henry S. Bayard
of St. Petersburg to alter the bill
by increasing the number of com-
missioners from three to five mem-
bers, and to impose additional taxes
on the utilities to pay for regula-
tion, were defeated.

Sharks Lose To Apalach
6-0 In First Night Game

Chalk Up Win Over Wewahitchka
Wednesday Afternoon; Go To
Chipley Next Thursday

The Shark baseball team of the
Port St. Joe high school split with
Wewahitchka and Apalachicola dur-
ing the past week's diamond activ-
ity. The locals handed Wewa a 6-1
defeat here Wednesday afternoon,
but lost a 6-0 decision to Apalachi-
cola Tuesday night at Centennial
Field before a good crowd in the
Sharks' first game under lights.
Philip Chatham limited the We-
wahitchka 'Gators to two hits and
struck out 10 men while notching
his second win of the season. The
.game was a close 2-1 contest until
the Sharks staged a four-run rally
in the sixth frame. The big blow
was a ringing double by' Jimmy
Philyaw that drove in two runs.
Dunlap and Hudson also contributed
timely blows to the Shark offense.
Apalachicola's Dickie Bloodworth
shut out the locals with a well-
pitched three-hit game under the
lights Tuesday night. The game was
a pitcher's battle between Blood-
worth and St. Joe's Dunlap until
the sixth canto. The Baby Oyster-


men erupted for two runs in the WHERE TO FISH
