Action Urged To
Food Fish Are Fast Disappearing
Off West Florida Coast,
State Conservation Agent D. O.
Boyer this week warned that the
old Florida standby-mullet and
grits-might soon be a thing of the
past if something isn't done to pro-
tect the supply of fish.
He said the mullet are fast dis-
appearing off the west coast of
Florida just as sponges did a few
years back. He suggests that the
state legislature hold a special ses-
sion, if necessary, to lengthen the
closed season on the fish. The pres-
ent closed season is from Decem-
ber 10 to January 20. Boyer says
it should be from November 1 to

Our Country Right or Wrong
RUSSIA TELLS US
Remember when General MacArthur wanted
to call upon the Chinese Reds to meet for a con-
ference to end the Korean war? He was damned
by the politicians, including your friend (he ain't
ours) Harry Truman, told he had exceeded his
authority, and was yanked from his command.
But when Russia's Malik says "Let's see what
can be done," immediate steps are taken to dis-
cuss some sort of truce. And yet Russia, all the
while has been proclaiming loudly that she has
had nothing to do with the Korean situation-
was merely sitting on the sidelines to see what
Isn't it about time we stopped letting Russia
call the shots in this cold war turned hot? Why
don't we take the initiative and put the decision
for war or peace in Russia's hands?

forum Sunday night in which Republican and
Democratic senators heatedly discussed the so-
called Korean "incident." The Republican sena-
tor wanted to know why the battle line was
drawn at the Yalu River, why Red bases in China
had not been bombed, why the huge reservoirs
supplying electric energy to the Reds had not
been destroyed when they fell into American
hands, and other questions.
The Democratic senator whooped and hollered
and said the bigwigs in Washington knew what
they were doing, that they were only "policing"
Korea, and that all they had hoped to get in
Korea was a stalemate.
Does a stalemate appeal to you readers of The
Star? It doesn't appeal to your editor. If that is
to be the sum and substance of the fighting in
that godforsaken country and the basis for a
negotiated peace, thousands of American lives
have been wasted in a poor cause, including
three of our own young men from Port St. Joe.
The Russian-backed Red Chinese probably
will settle for some sort of armistice, agreement,
or whatever you care to call it, but, like other
agreements signed by Russia, it will not be kept.
Russia, as has been proven time and time again,
thinks nothing of lying, and of violating both the
letter and spirit of solemn agreements, so we
*shouldn't expect anything from any agreement

understand, and that's bombs and shells. So long

there can be no stability and safety in the world

PORT ST. JOE GARDEN CLUB
Watch Out for Borers
The greatest difficulty in ccmbat-
ing borers is that we often do not
suspect trouble until the plants are
practically dead, then it is too late
to do anything about it.
Best means of detecting borer
trouble is close inspection of plants
every couple of weeks. As socn as
little holes are noticed in the bark
of trees, dahlia stalks and shrubs,
it is a good indication that borers
have made their entrance.
Here in the South the following
plants are often attacked by borers:
Squash, cucumber, melons, corn,
peach, plum, dogwood, deoder ce-
dar, lilac, roses, dahlia, iris, pines,
oaks and azaleias. Borers do not at-
tack healthy plants. They seek the
plants that are weakened by star-
vation, drought, winter injury, in-
juries and carelessness of wood dis-
posal. Be careful not to break the
bark of trees with garden tools.
Control method depends upon the
kind of plant affected. Spray corn,
dahlias, iris and shrub stems with
DDT to prevent entrance of these

Deadline Is Near
On GI Training
Service Officer Warns Veterans To
Hop To It If They Want To
Get On the Bandwagon
But 12 days remain for veterans
to take advantage of vocational
training offered under the GI Bill,
says Bill Linton, Gulf county ser-
The legislation provides that vet-
erans discharged on or 'before July
25, 1947, must be in actual training
on or previous to July 25, 1951. To
initiate GI Bill training by the cut-
off date means the applicant must
actually begin training rather than
file application before that date.
Linton calls particular attention
to the fact that the necessary cer-
tificates, if issued within the last
few days prior to July 25, might
not, after receipt by the veteran,
afford sufficient time for most vet-
erans to start their training. He
emphasized that actual starting of
training, and not merely enrollment
in a school or training establish-
ment; is required if the government
is to bear the costs of the training
under the GI Bill.
Linton further stated that each
veteran should assure himself, by
inquiry'of responsible officials, that
the school or establishment he
seeks to enter is approved by the
state of Florida and by the admin-
istrator of veterans affairs, as both
such approvals are required if the

Son of Stansberry's
In Serious Condition
Word was received here this week
from Mr. and Mrs. Robert F. Stans-
berry, formerly of this city, now of
960 Fisher Drive, Houston, Texas,
that their two-year-old son, Robert
Joseph, had been placed in a hos-
pital for the third time since May
29 of this year.
The youngster is suffering from
nephrosis, a form of kidney trouble
that medical authorities seem to
know very little about or how to
treat it, and the outlook for the
little fellow's recovery is a fifty-
fifty chance at this time. The doc-
tors at the Herman Hospital in the
Teas city informed"Mrs. Stansberry
that they could not tell her just
how long the child would need to
remain in the hospital; however,
they hoped to be able to tell her
more about his condition in the
next three weeks, as they were go-
ing to use th. newest drugs in
The little fellow doesn't seem to
suffer any pain, but is made very
uncomfortable at times' by the tre-
mendous amount of swelling thru-
out the body, which is, a marked
symptom of the disease.
Mrs. Stansberry will be remem-
bered here by her many friends as
Maxie Ferrell, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. W. B. Ferrell.
We, along with a lot of other peo-
ple in St. Joe, have been wondering
why the Faulk & Coleman Com-
pany worked up a high ridge of oil-
sand down the middle of Third
Street some time back and then
left it. It is quite a traffic hazard.
Lu'hber grasshoppers, largest of
American grasshoppers, can be ob-
served in many state parks.
Hunting and Fishing
License Sales in Gulf
Amount To $18,917
Figures From County Judge Earl
Pridgeon's Office Show Gain
Over 1949-50 Fiscal Year
Fishing and hunting license sales
in Gulf county proved to be big
business during the fiscal year just
closed, County Judge Earl Prid-
geon's report reveals. Total sales
during the 12-month period came
to $18,917.75, a gain of $5,025 over
the 1949-50 fiscal year.
Judge Pridgeon says the sale of
fishing licenses appears to be about
the same as last year, as far as out-
of-state sales are concerned, and he
believes there will be little, if any,
drop in sales of non-resident li-
censes this year on account of the
boost in price from $7.50 to $10.00.
Fishing and hunting is a prime
source of revenue for a consider-
able number of Gulf county resi-
dents, particularly in the northern
part of the'cointy.
