Various Ideologies Vie For
New Converts, Speaker
In .delivering the address to the
graduating class of '51 of the Port
St. Joe high school last Friday-eve-
ning, Floyd Hunt warned the grad-
uates that "since the beginning of
time the mind of man has b'eeh
sought after by the advocates of the
various ideologies" and told them
that it was up to them to make
their own decision, that they could
enjoy the good fruits of the right
decisions or suffer the bad conse-
quences of the wrong decisions.
Pointing out to them that they
were now going out into the world
on their own, he said: "When we
view the world situation, there is
little to be seen-that is conducive to
immediate enthusiasm over taking
one's diploma under arm and set-
ting out on the journey through
"The road ahead look rough and
uncertain in spots-but it doesn't
look hopeless. There's always hope
where there's life and we still-
have life: There's hope that the go-
ing will not be as difficult, once
you' get underway, as it looks at
"More often than otherwise it
turns out that way:.' Mos of the
things we worry about never hap-
pen. Most of the shaky bridges we
cross in our imagination are strong
and capable of upholding the traf-
fic when we get ready to cross."
Touching upon the nation's prob-
lems today, the speaker was of the
opinion that most of them have re-
sulted from moral decline, caused
principally from the centuries-old
controversy between labor and man-
agement from which sprung Com-
munism, Socialism and such crack-'
pot ideologies, all of which have re-
sulted in spiritual weakness and a
decline of religion.
"You should have a reasonable,
unbiased and unprejudiced evalua-
tion of the conditions prevailing in
the world in which you hope to
carve a career that will bring you

World Is Calling for Leaders and
Workers Who Have Deter-
mination To Succeed
(The following address of welcome
was delivered last Friday night by
George Harper Jr., salutatorian of
the class of '51, St. Joe high school.)
It is my privilege, in behalf of the
senior class of 1951, to welcome you
to our commencement program.
We welcome our parents and rel-
atives, who have given us all, the
loving care and guidance necessary
during the years of our youth.
We greet our principals and teach-
ers, who have patiently directed
our learning during the past twelve
We greet also our superinten-
dent, the school trustees, and the'
members of the board of education,
who have provided us with the ad-
vantages of a fine school system.
We are happy for the presence of
all our friends, and all the alumni,
who have come to enjoy this oc-
casion with us.
As you see us in our caps and
gowns tonight, we have conquered
just one of the many obstacles -in
our pathway to success. In the
past twelve years we have worked
together, played together, learned
together, and tonight we will. re-
ceive the passport that sends us out
into the world.
But what of the future? We look
upon the world iito w'yr-, 1-we are
going tonight with no ie.s of won-
der which caused Shakespeare's
Meranda to exclaim:
"Oh, brave new world
Which hath such creatures -in it."
The creatures of our new world
-the creations of science and in-
vention-hold no less of marvel and
surprise for us. Like the young Me-
randa, we would know more about
the world which science has cre-
ated for us.
There are many, many challenges
facing us as we leave this institu-
tion and move out into broader
fields of learning and of action. If
these challenges are met, the youth
of 1951 will most certainly have a?
part in meeting them. The world is
calling not only for leaders, but
also for workers, who have the de-
termination to succeed. We can be
successful if we are willing to do
as Booker T. Washington advo-
cated: "Learn to produce what the
world wants, and produce it better
than others," or,'ias Tennyson put
it, in three short words: "Attain
Let us then master as much of
the fields of knowledge as possible,
but with all our getting, let us get
wisdom, remembering .always that
"the fear of the Lord is the begin-
ning of wisdom."

Our Country Right or Wrong
WE THINK HE MADE A MISTAKE
We were never an ardent supporter of Fuller
Warren, but we have not taken any cracks at hi
as a large number of Florida papers have. How-
ever, we believe he made a mistake in vetoing
the bill banning publication of horse race infor-'
mation useful to gamblers.
The governor turned thumbs down on the bill
with the statement that it would infringe on free-
dom of the press. The measure would have made
it unlawful to publish, sell or possess wall charts,
tip sheets, scratch sheets, newspapers, bookmak-
*ing tickets or other items in furtherance of illegal
gambling. The newspaper clause, which was the
least important, was added while'the bill was
pending in the legislature.
The vast majority of newspapers in the state,
including The Star, were happy to see this par-
ticular measure pass, and so stated. Most of the
large dailies, which were the ones carrying rac-

T. M. Bandy Taken By Death
'Funeral services were held Sat-
urday for Thomas Marion Bandy,
83, who died early Friday morning
ing information, were particularly pleased. Na-
turally, the so-called "tip sheets" yelled to high
heaven, for it would put them out of business.
Now, after being cleared by a legislative in-
vestigating committee of charges that he was
lined up with the gambling interests, Fuller
turns right around and, on the face of it, at least,
plays right into the hands of those, interests.
As pointed out by Attorney General Dick Er-
vin, if this particular measure in any way inter-
fered with freedom of the press, the supreme
court would rule it out.
Yes, we believe Fuller made a bad mistake by
putting his veto on this measure.
The world knows what appeasement and vacil-
lation mean to a nation confronted by an aggres-
sive and ruthless enemy. It leads to one certain
goal-disaster. The once proud nations which
have bowed their heads in defeat are grim proof
of this. Today's dictators give no quarter. They
are after but one thing-total victory. The nation
which gives a little, eventually gives all.
Inflation has something in common with sin-
everybody is against it in principle, but there are
a good many people who think that a little per-
sonal indulgence would be appropriate and en-
joyable just so long as it is confined to them-
We've talked with a number of fishermen who
went out on the lakes opening day and they got
along fine until they got tangled up in their lyin'.
The simile used to be "spring up like mush-
rooms." Now we substitute "national debt" for
the word mushrooms.

Well-rooted cuttings of chrysan-

well drained, as they will not en-

plenty of humus. A sprinkling of
dalemitic lime is advisable if the
soil is very acid.
Gardenias-The popular planting
time for gardenias is while they are
in bloom. Usually theroot system
is severely pruned for transplant-
ing, so the top should be cut back
to correspond. They should be

be acidand contain a large amount
of humus to retain moisture.

They Assert It Pays To'
Advertise In The Star
To quote a statement made by
"Editor Bill always says 'Adver-
tising doesn't cost, it pays,' and that
must be true. We didn't advertise a
dime's worth during January, Feb-
ruary and March, and the sales sit-
uation had me pulling out my hair
in great handfuls. Then, after a few
classified ads run in April and three
four-column block ads on used cars
and trucks run in May, things be-
gan to pick up sharply.
"Of course, we are in the midst
of a May-June 'Wheel and Deal'
contest (wheel 'em in and deal 'em
out) and our enthusiasm has been
higher and greater efforts have
been extended, with prizes as the
goal for quota, but The Star must
certainly come in for the lion's
share of the credit.
"We reduced inventory of used
cars and trucks during the month
of May in dollar value at least two'-
thirds of inventory dollar value at
the beginning of May."
And Garraway isn't the only one
who has discovered that "advertis-
ing pays." .. T. O. Poitevint
put a two-inch by one column ad in
The Stara couple of weeks ago in-
forming all and sundry that he was
in the plumbing business.
"My gosh, S itty," he said Mon-
day, "I've got so many orders for
work that I've reached the point
where I'm turning 'em down be-
cause I haven't the time to do 'em
