Paving Project Being Pushed
Thru Wakulla, Jefferson
and Taylor Counties
A survey of the long sought "miss-
ing link" in the Gulf Coast High-
way from Road 365 at Newport to
Highway 27 at Perry shows that the
$2,000,000 project is now about half
complete and that it is hoped to be
thrown open some time within the
next 12 months.
Completion of this section of road
-long sought by residents of Gulf,
Bay, Franklin and Wakulla coun-
ties-will cut 18 miles off the dis-
tance from Port St. Joe to Perry
and eliminate the necessity of go-
ing north from Crawfordville to Tal-
lahassee and back down Highway
27 to Perry (a distance of 70 miles)
for motorists driving to Tampa or
other South Florida points. In addi-
tion, it will be important to coastal
defense in a national emergency.
The new road will open to travel
a section of Florida previously in-
accessible to any but the hardiest
hunters, fishermen and loggers. It
passes through country where De-
Soto; Naravez and Ponce de Leon
explored in vain for gold and riches
more than 400 years ago.
This area also was the locale
where two American generals, who
both later bem.im.; y-e,.ldelti of the
United States, fought Indians. Gen-
eral Andrew "Old Hickory" JackL
son chased the redskins through the
piney woods and cypress swamps
biak in 1818, and 112 years ago,
General Zachary Taylor, then com-
manding federal forces in Florida,
also "fit" the Indians there.
Greatest portion of the road is in
Jefferson county, while the two end
sections are in Wakulla on the west
and Taylor on the east.
Most of the highway is being con-
structed through what state road
department engineers term "almost
impassable swampland." But old
tram roads and trails are providing
the roadbed in places.
Number of Local Firms
Are Ignoring State Law
In talking with George Core, cir-
cuit clerk court, the other day, the
editor of The Star was informed by
that genial soul that a number of
firms and individuals in Port St.
Joe are operating their businesses
illegally because they have not yet
complied with the state law that
requires all fictitious trade names
to be registered at the court house
In other words, all persons not
engaged in business under their own
names are required to register their
business namewith the clerk of the'
We informed George that this
was really a shocking state of af-
fairs and- that we would place the
matter before our readers. Anyone

Home From Vacation
Mrs. Verna Smith and Miss Sarah
Kelly .returned Thursday of last
week from a two weeks' vacation
trip tp points in Louisiana, Alabama
and Mississippi. While in the Peli-
can State they visited'with Mr. and
Mrs. John Lane.
Patrons of.the Port St. Joe post-
office now find the new and more
convenient' money order available
at Chauncey Costin's stamp em-
porium in the Masonic building.
Principal changes in the new sys-
tem, as explained to Ye Ed by Fer-
rell Allen, make it possible to have
a money order cashed at any post-
office in the country, or it may be
collected through any bank in the
same manner as the depositing or
cashing of a check.
The new money order appears in
the form of a punched card (similar
to government checks) instead of
the customary slip of blue paper,
and purchasers will fill out the
same form and pay the same fees
as has been required in the past.
The regulation that mbney orders
must be cashed at specific postof-
fices has been eliminated. Under
the old system, it will be recalled, a

Senate Asked To Restore lity Preparing ,
Cuts In Waterways Bill Ordinance To Tax
Included Are the Intracoastal Wa-
terway and the Jim Woodruff EntertaBinmen
Dam At C .hattahoocheef
A Florida group in Washington,
D. C., headed by Senator Holland,
has asked a senate subcommittee to
restore $5,261,343 which the house
cut from flood control and naviga-
tion appropriations for the state.
Holland told the committee Flor-
ida's projects are all vital to na-
tional defense, but the state is will-
ing to accept any across-the-board
reduction voted by congress. He
said the house, however, cut Flor-
ida's projects 27.5%' w)iile th over-
all reduction for all projects in the
army civil functions bill was only
19%. One project, the Jim Wood-
ruff Dam. at Chattahoochee, is ac-
tually a tri-state project affecting
Georgia and Alabama as well as
Florida, Holland said.
Among the Florida projects cut,
the senate group was asked to re-
store $200,000 cut from the $2,350,-
000 intracoastal waterway project,
and' $700,000 removed from the $7,-
000,000 Jim Woodruff Dam project.
Claims Court Is
Businessmen ,Miy Now Col-
lect Debts Without
Gulf county's small claims court,
created by local legislation in the
recent session of the state legisla-
ture submitted by Representative
George G. Tapper at the request of
businessmen of the county, has be-
gun operations, with County Judge
J. Earl Pridgeon presiding.
Purpose of the court is to assist
in the settlement of claims of less
than $100 without hiring an attor-
ney to file suit. A businessman or
person holding such a claim may
now merely file the claim with the
court and the defendant will be
duly notified. Settlement is made
through the court.
Judge Pridgeon points out that he
is furnishing his office in the court-
house at Wewahitchka for the work
as required by the law; which also
requires him to act as judge of the
court. He says thlis new court was
no idea of his, but was enacted by
the legislature at the request of
businessmen of the county.
The fee for filing in the court is
$2.50 (in advance), except in pro-
ceedings of garnishment, attach-
ment, replevin or distress, in which
case the fee is $5.
According to the law, judgments
of the small claims court become a
lien on the real estate of a defend-
ant, situated in any county, from
the time of filing in the office of
the clerk of the circuit court of a
transcript of the judgment. Appeals
may be had from judgments re-
turned in the small claims court to
the circuit court. Jury trials may be
had upon demand of the plaintiff
or the defendant.
Service Officer To Be Here
Veterans of St. Joe and vicinity
who need assistance in obtaining
'benefits under the GI Bill may re-
ceive expert guidance from Pres-
ton L. Nicholas, assistant state ser-
vice officer, who will be at the city
hall on Thursday, August 2, from

Provides for Levy On Ducats
Of All Types; Final Pass-
age Set for August 7
At the regular meeting of the city
commission an ordinance was read
for the first time providing for the
levying of taxes on admissions to
all types of entertainment, includ-
rig moving picture shows, circuses,
traveling shows, theatrical perform-
ances and other entertainments of'
like character, prize fights, boxing
and wrestling matches, and other
athletic contests and exhibitions in-
the city of Port St. Joe for admit-
tance to which a charge is made.
The ordinance will not apply to
any performance, contest or exhi-
bition in Which local school chil-
dren perform for the benefit of
their school or athletic association.
It provides for a tax of Ic on each
admission exceeding 8c but not ex-
ceeding 25c; 2c on each admission
exceeding 25c but not exceeding
50c, and 3c on each admission ex-
ceeding 50c. The tax is to be paid
by the purchaser unless the ticket
seller elects to absorb the tax.
For violation of any provisions of
the ordinance a fine of not more
than $100 may be imposed or im-
prisonment for not more than 60
days, or ,9 .i' -such fine and im-
prisonment in the'discretion of the
Final reading of the ordinance
will be heard at the meeting of the
city commission on August 7, ac-
cording to City Clerk Ben Dickens.
Provision for the ordinance was
made in a special bill at the recent
session of the state legislature
which was put through by the city
due to the fact that a similar or-
dinance in effect for several years
was declared unconstitutional by
the courts because its provisions
were not incorporated in the city's
charter. The special legislative bill
was a change in the charter to al-
low such taxation.
Mrs. Tapper Receives Jolt
During Electrical Storm
During a rather severe electrical
storm last Friday morning which
hovered over our city for some time
and during which several bolts were
released by Thor, god of lightning,
Mrs. Robert Tapper received quite a
severe shock when one of the bolts
apparently hit a power line.
Mrs. Tapper was in the act of
moving an electric lamp at the mo-
ment, and the shock caused a
numbness of her right arm. Accord-
ing to word Wednesday, she is fine
and suffered no ill effects from the
experience other than fright.
Several hot water heaters were
also burned out by the bolt, and
employes in the Florida Bank build-

WhyPENICILLIN and SULFADRUGS
Cannot Be LEGALLY Sold Without
A Doctor's Prescription!
First, it's a federal law passed by the Pure Food
and Drug Administration for the protection of the
public's health and safety.
Second, many persons are allergic to pencillin and
break out in rashes.
Third, if pencillin is not taken in proper dosage a
person may build up a resistance to it and then,
when it is really needed for some serious illness,
it will have no effect.
Fourth, sufla drugs are very toxic unless precau-
tions are taken and administered properly.

By a vote of six to three the supreme court has
ruled that a community can, if it so pleases, for-
bid door-to-door peddling of merchandise and
magazines. At present some 500 towns and cities
have such restrictions, and the test case reaching
the supreme court came from Alexandria, La.
It was brought by the direct selling industry,
which claims to do an annual business of about
Those bringing the case said much about free-
dom of the press and freedom of speech, but the
majority of the court recognized another and un-
written right-the.freedom to be let alone.
The court, in its decision, spoke sympathetic-
ally of "the hospitable housewife, peering around
her chained door" to find out who rang the bell,
and what for. It was brought out in the hearing
that doorbell ringers could be dangerous char-

Building of Pipeline Proceeds
Work was resumed this week on
the Port St. Joe-Chattanooga pipe-
line when the way was cleared by
congress which passed legislation
allowing pipeline concerns to se-
cure rights-of-way .by condemnation
proceedings. It is anticipated that
the Southeastern line will be com-
pleted within two months, which
will mean a greater number of oil
tankers coming into our port to dis-
charge their cargoes.

The matter of the city commission of Port St.
Joe passing such an ordinance has been brought
up several times in the past ten or twelve years,
in fact, the editor of The Star proposed such a
regulation during the term of Mayor Horace W.
Soule, but each time City Attorney Clay Lewis
stated that while the city could pass such an or-
dinance, chances were that it would be declared
Now that-the highest court of the land has
ruled that such a regulation is legal, it behooves
the businessmen of our fair city to appeal to the
city dads to pass immediately such an ordinance.
It would be for their own good, since every year
they lose thousands of dollars worth of business
to these fly-by-night door-to-door peddlers.
Incidentally, such an ordinance cannot apply
to the sale or soliciting of orders for the sale of
milk, dairy products, vegetables, poultry, .eggs
and other farm and garden produce.

States were the Chicago fire, the San Francisco

A good way to retrench would be to quit pay-

Insurance Rates Up
Already in effect are increases
for automobile liability insurance
rates, set by the state insurance
commissioner because of "stagger-
ing" losses in the last half of 1950
and the first part of 1951.
Average increases: 30% for pri-
vate passenger bodily injury, 20%
for private passenger property dam-
age, and 9% for commercial bodily
The commercial property damage
rate was not changed, says Frank
Hannon, local insurance agent, and
there is no change in the rates for
protection of the insured's own car,
fire, theft, deductive collision, etc.

Taxpayers May Wake Up To
Fact Some Day They Are
By RUSSELL KAY
Taxes, federal, state, county and
city, are reaching a point where
they really hurt and you hear more
and more people complaining.
To make matters worse, almost
every national magazine as well as
our own local newspapers tell us of
outrageous waste of tax monies on
every level. Government offices are
over-burdened with employees who
are not needed.
Bureaucratic officials exert more
and more authority over the lives
of citizens, maintain costly lobbies
and public relations staffs to try
and impress us with their import-
ance and 'bamboozle congress into
giving them more and more au-
thority and larger and larger ap-
Office holders, from the president
on down, don't want economy in
any department but scream for
more and more money fof more and
more boondoggling. Small fry poli-
ticians see the "Big Boys" in gov-
ernment getting away with it and
follow suit in'our states, cities and
America's wealth and resources
are being squandered at a fearful
rate and yet the poor dumb tax-
payer who pays the bill remains
indifferent or actually eggs the
spenders on by howling for some
service that he feels will bring him
or his family some special benefit,
overlooking the fact that countless
others like him are doing the same
thing, and while he may derive
some benefit from the service he is
so anxious to get, he is going to pay
many times over for other services
to other people who mean nothing
We hear a lot of silly talk about
"security". We listen to bureau-
cratic propaganda about "free" ser-
vices. Hog-wash and bolony!
Wealth comes only from produc-
tion. When we fail to produce we
go broke. A lot of poor dumb, simple
folks seem to have the idea that
money the government throws away
is some sort of play money. They
overlook the fact that the govern-
ment, federal, state, county and
city, produces nothing. It has no
money. It can't get any money un-
less you work like a dumb ox and
provide it out of your earnings.
Over the years, all branches of
government have created more and
more bureaus to provide more and
more so-called services. They send
out reams of costly literature and
press releases to keep us sold on
these services and try to get us to
approve more which they keep in-
sisting are "free".
President Truman with his social-
istic "Fair Deal" program wants
more and more of your money to
throw down new ratholes. GoVer-
nor Warren, following in his foot-
steps, howls for more tax money
and wants to saddle this state with
a state income tax on top of all the
The people, they claim, want more
services from the government. All
right, Mr. Taxpayer, how many of
the costly alphabetical bureaus now
rbeing- operated; with your money
did you personally ASK FOR? How
many congressional or legislative
committees .have you gone before
and demanded that these services
be provided and. begged, that. the-
money to operate them be taken
away from your pay envelope or
your bank account?
It won't be long before your big
hearted Uncle Sam will be digging
into your pay envelope again and
taking another healthy slice from
your pay. You say you don't like
it. But you won't do anything about
On top of that you are going to
pay more money for gasoline for
your car, more money for your
cigarets and if you enjoy a nip now
and then, more money for your
All these increased taxes mean
more and more money for the poli-
ticians and 'bureaucrats to play
with. It's your money. You worked
and produced to earn it. But you
aren't interested in what is done
with it. You hand it over and then
look on it as money you are no
longer interested in.
Some day maybe it will occur to
some taxpayer that he is being
gloriously gypped and he will get
up on his hind legs and demand a
lot of this foolish government
spending be stopped. Maybe some
day enough of'you will get hurt to
the point whire you will go to the
polls instead of going fishing and
vote for those candidates who will
pledge themselves to reduce ex-
penses, cut out unnecessary bu-
reaus and give you something for
your money. And.maybe, if you can
find such a candidate you will keep

You Couldn't Make a Smarter Buy!
BEFORE you make any kind of deal on a new car, remember this:
One of the most important things you buy when you buy a new
car is its name!
Just think for a minute what the Pontiac name means:
It means a, car so thoroughly good it will give you years of pleasure.
It means performance so satisfying you will look forward to every
minute behind the wheel.
It means a car so beautiful it stands apart from everything else on
The name Pontiac on your car means you are buying from a dealer
who takes pride in the car he sells, the service he providesaand his
place in the community.
When you can buy all those things for the very low price of a Pontiac,
what smarter buy could you make? Come on in and we'll talk deal-
you'll be surprised how easy it is to become a Pontiac owner.

SArea; Need Cited for
Florida, second only to Orekon in
forest land area, is using more tim-
ber than it produces, according to
Dr. C. M. Kaufman, director of the
University of Florida's school of
forestry. He said this state has 21,-
400,000 acres of commercial forest
lands, but its lumber cut has been
steadily decreasing since 1909 until
the demand for timber products is
greater than the supply.
In spite of the falling timber
stands, forestry is the third largest
industry in Florida. The tourist
trade is first and agriculture sec-
ond. In 1948, Florida's forest prod-
ucts were valued at $232,000,000.
Solution to the state's dwindling
forest stands is sustained yield
management, Kaufman said. With
such management he thinks the
timber growth can be increased at
Kaufman predicts that such a
program ultimately will require
1000 foresters in Florida and an-
other 1000 for forest industries.

"Address furnished on request
Ranch owner George Stephens proved for
himself, in the big Economy Run, just
how little it costs to run his Ford Truck!
"The Lazy J's Ford Express did itself
proud in the Ford Truck Economy Run,"
says Stephens. "Daily records kept during
the entire six months show that our Ford
Truck ran up a total of 5,109 miles. My
out-of-pocket expense for gas, oil, main-
tenance and repairs was exactly $123.51
... about a $20 bill each month ... only
2%X cents a mile!"
The Ford Truck POWER PILOT car-
buretion-ignition system is one reason why
Ford Trucks cost so little to run, in ranch
work or any work. The POWER PILOT gives
you the most power from the least gas.
In the low-price field, only Ford has it!
