Kids Warned By Griffin To
Go Easy With Peashooters
Chief -of Police Buck Griffin has
received complaints from irate res-
idents that a considerable number
of kids about town have been doing
target practice on pedestrians and
'motorists with pea-sooters, using
'china berries and other like berries
"Thi- will have to stop," quoth
the chief, "otherwise I will be com-
pelled to pick up offenders and
hale them before their parents for
proper parental .chastisement."
..S, kids, take a second think as
ou are tempted when some unsus-
pecting citizen bends over to tie
bi1 shoe. If-may mean trouble.
- Two Local Boys Enroll In G. M. A.
Donald Ramsey, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Ed Ramsey,"has 'enrolled in
Geoigia .Military Acadlemy. at Col-
lege Pairk, Ga., as a junior in high
school. Jimmy Philyaw has also
enrolled at q. M. A. as a senior.
The editor of The Star, as you may have noted, is opposed to
straight salaries for members of the Gulf county school board, be-
ing of the opinion that with salaries attached to the job it would
bring out candidates who would be primarily interested in what
they could get out of the job rather than what they could put into
it for the benefit of our school system. We are highly satisfied with
our present board members, feeling that they are filling their po-
sitions from a sense of duty to the community.
Certain interested parties here in St. Joe who rather consider
themselves "king-make.rs" and have a few fingers in every election,
whether it be city commissioner, school board, county commis-
sioner, representative or what not, have tried talking to us in an
effort to change our stand, not only on the school board salary
measure, but on the publication of the school board minutes. But
they had no manner of putting the so-called "pressure" on us as
we understand they have done in other instances. They can't with-
hold their advertising from the columns of The Star nor can they
cut off their job printing since none of them advertise and all of
their job printing goes out of town. And even if they did try some-
thing like that, we'd have told them where they could go, as we're
as independent as a hog on ice.
Pointing out, in regard to.publication of the school board pro-
ceedings and vouchers paid, that it would embarrass our school
teachers by having everyone know what pittances they received,
we informed them that everyone knew our teachers were under-
paid and that they certainly are entitled to more money and that
we had in the past and would in the future do all in our power
to help them get a raise. We also suggested that rather than pay
school board members $50 a month that this money be appropri-
ated for teachers' salaries and distributed pro rata among our
county teachers. Wouldn't be much, but it would buy a little sow
belly and beans.
Funny thing about the whole situation, we haven't heard a peep
siderable number of parents, particularly the women, have com-
out of any of the present members of the board, although a con-
mended us on our stand against salaries.
Let's keep the school board pay system the way it is at present
by voting against the pay raise. And let's have publication of the
school board proceedings in order that we may know what is go-
ing on in circles of learning and where our money goes that the
school board handles.
Below is the ballot you will be asked to cast in tomorrow's elec-
tion. We urge you to mark it as you see it here:

the right of the words "FOR THE ACT".

Parent-Teacher Association Hears Interesting Talk
By Retired School Principal At First Meeting of Year
Port St. Jo.e, Florida
September 20, 1951
Dearest Clyde-It is very late, but
I must tell you about our Parent-
Teacher Association meeting held
this evening. It was the opening
meeting of the year-held in the
elementary school, and I was simply
thrilled at the interest shown. No
actual attendance count was made,
but I feel sure there were well over
200 present, and the nicest thing
about it was the *fact that they all
really seemed to enjoy every min-
ute-even the business session.
Our new president, Mrs. Rush
Chism (and are we lucky to have
her!) gave a nice welcome address,
,and Maxine Swain, our music chair-
man, pepped up the audience with
a motion song, "The More We Get
Together." This was followed by
the devotional, given by Rev. War-
ren Lindsey, which gave inspira-
tional tone to the evening.
We certainly have a nice lineup
of workers this year. They were an-
nounced as follows: Music and art
chairman, Mrs. Jack Swain; pro-
gram, Mrs. Ralph'Nance; publica-
tions, Mrs. W. E. Whaley; study
group, Mrs. Ed Ramsey; hospital-
ity, Mrs. Jonnie Sykes; spiritual
life, Rev. Warren Lindsey; member-
ship, Mrs. S. B. Shuford; library
service, Mrs. Jaon Robert Smith;
room representative, Mrs. John G.
Blount; health, Mrs. A. L. Ward;
first aid, Mrs. E. C. Musselwhite;
finance, Frank Hannon; exceptional
children, Miss Fanny Brown; visual
aid; Miss Katherine Nix; legisla-
tion, Cecil Costin Jr., (he gave an
explanation of the two locya bil*. to
be;voted on'Saturday); teacher rep-
resentatives, Messrs. Scisson, Rich-
ards and Veasey, Mrs. Edith Stone
and Miss Margaret Smith. Mrs.
Doris Whealton has been appointed
As is usual in a first meeting, the
faculty members were introduced.
And was this a surprise! On being
introduced they were asked to come
to the front. They did so-reluct-
antly. But their reluctance was
changed to smiles of appreciation
when each of them, to the tune of
"How D'y Do, Dear Teachers," was
presented with a nice gift from the
president dainty organdy aprons
for the ladies and handkerchiefs, I
believe, for the gents! The teachers
were most appreciative, and I heard
one of them tell Mrs. Chism that
she should have been president for
"lo, these many years."
In the business session we voted
to sponsor the school carnival again
this year; to take up "Education for
'CivilDeferise'"as a project; to con-
'Mr. and Mrs. Pope Findley of this

dance for both elementary and high
school; to sponsor a nursery dur-
ing regular meetings, to be kept by
Girls Scouts, assisted, by an older
high school girl; to hold most of
the meetings in the elementary
school, and to sponsor open house
at the high school in November, in
celebration of National Book Week,
and at the elementary school in De-
cember, when a school art exhibit
will be held.
Our guest speaker for the eve-
ning was Mrs. Wm. R. Brearly, a
retired school principal of the New
Jersey schools, who is now living
on the beach at Indian Pass. Her
topic was "Know Your P.-T. A."
(she holds a P.-T. A. life member-
ship), and she began with the state-
ment that it was lack of under-
standing between the home and the
school which led to its organization.
In discussing its objects and poli-
cies, Mrs. Brearley suggested that
"committees be diversified not
clannish"; that teachers must not
be called upon for too much P.-T. A.
work; that P.-T. A. be non-partisan,
but get behind voters and urge
them to study legislation that they
might vote intelligently; that the
P.-T. A. keep out commercialism;
that P.-T. A. be non-sectarian, "but
don't leave God out," she said. "In
this chaotic world only faith, work
and prayer will bring us out of con-
The speaker also suggested that
teachers know the home background
of their pupils, and that parents
discipline children at home before
sending them to school. "The Golden
Rule," she added', "applies both at

Our Country '" Right or Wrong
PACK OF LIES?
Your friend (he ain't ours) President Truman
has strongly defended his proposed federal bud-
get, contending that no major cuts can be made
in any part of it without endangering the welfare
of the nation (the welfare of the nation, appar-
ently in this case, being those hundreds of thou-
sands of political hangerson on the government
payroll). In a recent speech he took his most
aggressive position yet, when he stated in his
usual cocky manner, that charges of waste and
extravagance in the federal establishment amount
to a "pack of lies."
Your friend (he ain't ours) Harry has every
right to his views, even as you and I. But if he
is correct in this instance, the country certainly
is full of "packs of liars," including the editor of
The Star, and they abound in the Democratic as
well as the Republican party. Senator Byrd, for
instance, holds and substantiates his position with
masses of facts and figures- that the budget
could be reduced by something like $8,000,000,-
000 without harming any essential government
activity. Senator Douglas has waged a gallant
but losing battle again p:-barrel spending
which cannot be defended except on vote-seek-
ing political grounds. The Hoover commission,
which was entirely non-partisan, showed pre-
cisely where billions are being wasted in the ad-
ministration of the government. Only a few of
the Hoover commission recommendations lave
been adopted, and those that have been are of a
relatively minor character.
Truman's stand is logical only if we assume
that centralized government must do everything
for everybody, from putting their diapers on
them when they're brats to wiping their nose in
their old age when they're too feeble to lift a
handkerchief. In essence, this assumption says
that the people are incapable of taking care of
themselves, and that, consequently, they must be
wards of the state. That is a philosophy of defeat
and despair, and no nation could accept it and
retain its strength and freedom.
Unbridled government spending is a cancer
that can destroy the richest nation, and your
friend (he ain't ours) Truman is apparently the
irritating agent that is developing the cancer.

Study On Use
of Scrub Oak
May Result In Discovery of
Economic Use for Trees
On 3,000,000 Acres
A search to discover a profitable
economic use for the 3,000,000 acres
of sandy scrub, oak land scattered
thruout Florida has been launched
by the Florida Forest Service, ac-
cording to State Forester C. H.
Coulter of Tallahassee, who said
that Governor Warren and members
of the state cabinet have agreed to
release $20,000 of state funds to
match a $20,000 federal grant to set
up a research station somewhere in
The 1951 legislature authorized
the appropriation, to match federal
funds in creating the forestry re-
search station near the area of Cal-
houn, and Washington counties.
Coulter said that the federal cash
was assured and,-that the project
was expected to get underway nexAt
The lands concerned'in the study
are of the sandy soil type found in
vast.areas throughout Florida. Or-
The University of Florida is con-
ducting studies to 'find a use for the
scrub oak, but it has yet to interest
concerns in the oak as a profitable
raw material. The research station
will be devoted to finding a profit-
able use for the estimated 3,000,000
acres covered by the oak.
About 1,000,000 acres of this land
is found in the West Florida area,
which includes the counties of Gulf,
Waslington, Calhoun, Holmes, Wal-
ton, Jackson, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa
State Forester Coulter said the
proposed station's research would
benefit the entire southeast, since
the "dry, thirsty soil with the deep
water table" is found throughout
the south. The question, he said,
involves finding the "ways and
means to regenerate the area, whe-
ther naturally or artificially."
The station personnel, he stated.
would first checks the soil. Then,
looking over the area, they would
find a typical.forest.and pick a site
representing all types of the scrub,
oak, growth. This area they would
attempt to secure either by long-
term lease or other means, and the
research would begin.
The project will require the ser-
