Col. McDill Is Guest
Speaker At PTA Meet
Stresses Fact That St. Joe Has.A
Number of Targets and Appeals
for Women To Volunteer
By MRS. RALPH SWATTS
The October meeting of the Port
St. Joe Parent-Teacher Association,'
held Thursday evening of last week
in the auditorium of the elementary
school, was of unusual importance
. October being "carnival month,"
plans for the annual affair were
presented in detail by the carnival
chairman, Mrs. Maxine Swain, and
the program, presented by Mrs.
Ralph Nance, was the first step of'
the committee on civil defense, led
by B. B. Scisson, in the promotion
of the new project adopted by the'
P.-T. A. in the September meeting.
The guest speaker, Lieut. Col.
Wilfred 'E. McDill from Tyndall
Field, brought to the membership
and visitors plans for the civil de-
fense program in Florida, elaborat-
ing on the part which Northwest
Florida, and Gulf county in partic-
ular, is-to play in this project.
MoDill, wing personnel officer at
Tyndall, told his listeners that wo-
men will probably be called upon
to furnish up to 80 per cent of the
maximum services needed by civil
defense, not only for the counties,
but for 'the district and state units.
"The call of the armed forces and
industry for manpower," he said,
"will make'the services of the wo-
men more vital than ever before in
Getting close to home, the colonel
said that there are targets in St.
Joe worthwhile to the enemy, and
the possibility exists that they
could be on the bombing list.
The local by-laws were amended
to meet the requirements of the
Florida Conference, and the presi-
dent was authorized to appoint del-
egates to the state convention to be
held in Jacksonville, Nov. 13-15.
Music for this occasion, in addi-
tion to the song led by Mrs. Swain,
was supplied by Virginia Swatts,
who played a piano medley from
the music of Ralph Federer.
Attendance prizes were awarded
to Mrs. Pervis Howell and Mr. Goff.
A variety of delicious sandwiches
and drinks were served to approxi-
mately 250 people. Attendance at
the first two meetings has been ex-
cellent, .and it is hoped that "open
house" at the high school in No-
vember will draw an even better

PORT ST. JOE GARDEN CLUB
Select a well-drained location in
full sun or partial shade. The ground
should .be loose and viable with
plenty of humus. Dig at least eight
inches deep, pulverize the soil well
and mix the plant foods in thor-
ougly. A 'bed 5x5 feet or 2x12 feet
should be prepared for 100 plants.
Ten Ibs. of sheep manurs, 5 Ibs. of
bone meal, 10 lbs. of cold smoke
and 1 bag of peat humus will be re-
iSet plants at the same level they
have been growing, as shown by
the soil-line. Avoid overwatering.
Heat and too much water are fatal
While plants are small, dust beds
weekly with spergon or semesan to
prevent damp-off. If aphids or thrips
attack flowers and new growth, use
a good spray. A light application of
plant food twice a month will give
larger, finer Iblooms: Keep the
ground around the plants well cul-
tivated and aerated.

'RAY FOR SENATOR SMATHERS!
A couple of weeks ago the editor of The Star
wrote an editorial titled "Pig Cancels Welfare
Check," which was picked up and reprinted by
a number of papers throughout the state.
Florida's old age checks went out again this
month after being held up a short while due to
the federal government threatening to cut off its
appropriation if oldsters were allowed to keep a
cow, or a pig, or chickens, but the federal se-
curity agency still wants proof that those old
folks lucky enough to have those animals and
fowls won't be making a profit out of/the com-
A 1951 Florida law allows pensioners to have
these items. Federal rules say they mustn't give
the pensioner a net gain, otherwise he isn't en-
titled to aid. The state is endeavoring to produce
proof that no profit will result in order to keep
the cash coming from the federal pork barrel.
This week Senator George Smathers joins with
the editor of The Star and, we hope, every other
newspaper publisher in Florida, in lambasting
the stand of the federal agency. "I am offering
my services to State Welfare Commissioner Sher-
wood Smith in an effort to be of assistance in
any way possible in presenting the state's case,"
said Smathers in Washington. "In my opinion it
would be ridiculous to forbid the elderly people
of our state to produce, by their own efforts and
initiative, some of their own food and so to aug-
ment their meager pensions."
'Ray for Senator Smathers, say we.
Maybe we ought to call this new candidate's
law a common-law marriage act-because when
a guy declares himself to be a candidate-he is,
and must immediately qualify. This is going to
shut up a lot of folks who normally holler that
they are candidates, until the time to qualify-
and then never qualify. It is going to be both
amusing and confusing, but we like it. In short,
you can't propose to the public and then skip out.

in my crew here just wish that the
paper could be twice as large as it
is now, with much more news from
around our neck o' the woods there,
because, some of them were sta-
tioned near St. Joe at one time and
really like the little town and the
many friendly people there.

really interested in can only be

This guy Parker Hart, you know,
the bird that runs the Gulf Manu-
facturing Company out at Beacon
H4ll, worked like a trojan helping
build display racks and such for
the Gulf County Fair two years ago.
In fact, if it hadn't been for his un-
stinted giving of his time the dis-
plays probably would have been
only about half as big. And the
funny part' about f't was that he
doesn't belong to the AmericanLe-
gion, which sponsors the fair .
Anyway, he. dropped in at The Star
shop last week and informed us (we
being secretary of the fair associa
tion) that he had brought in the
necessary lumber for the display
racks, that he had paid for it him-
self (over $100), that he was donat-
ing it to the Legion, Wiat they could
build racks with it, toss it out into
the street or -use it for firewood, but
that's as far as he was going on
the fair this year. .. Oh, yeah?
SHe's been out on the lot and
in the Legion hall building this,
that and then like nobody's busi-
ness Bet we couldn't keep
him away with a shotgun. .Any-
how, we're giving Parker a great
big leather medal for his co-opera-
tion, and we only wish there were
a dozen more like him.
'Sez Joe Malpas in the Wakulla
County News: "Few things are as
pleasant and as enjoyable as that
lovely, lovely moment on a cold
winter night, when a guy stands up
in the middle of his room, shrugs
his shoulderS and lets his longies
fall off. We never could understand
why any garment as hard to get on,
as a set of longies, could, in the
course of a day, become twice as
large as it was originally."

Joe Malpas of the Wakulla County
News: iSez he, again:'
"Years ago we heard a very
young lady suggest to her playmate,
.'Let's play mama and papa!'
"The playmate, who was rather
a tough' boy of around five, shook
his head and answered, 'Naw, that's
too rough. Let's play 'football.'
"We, always thought that was
funny-but maybe there is a lot of
truth in the boy's statement, for we
note 'in the St. Joe Star that the
girls of the Port St. Joe school are
now playing football, no less. If
you youngsters don't mind, we'd.
like to say, thank 'goodness our
wooin' days are over. But then, on
the other hand, maybe it would:be
plumb romantic trying to smooch
the star of the backfield, or betting
how many yards your best gal could,
kick you if you tried to sneak a
kiss ortwo. And, still, on the other
hand, we are still glad that what
the novelists call the 'romantic
days' are over."

I read an article receiatty that
told about Independence Hall, in
Philadelphia, birthplace of Ameri-
can liberty, being treated for ter-
mites' for the first. time *since it 'was
built over 200 years :ago.
According to the 'story,' a quan-
tity 'of timber'.'lia' to be removed

It 'seems to me that this is sym-
bolic of what has happened to the
nation itself 'since the Declaration
of Independence was signed in that
famed building. I am sure if the
founders 6of this 'great republic
could compare the'present day ver-
sion of 'the -United States 'of 'Atner-
ioa with the blueprint they used in
its creation,.they would turn over
in their graves and weep salty

How the termites managed to do
all that damage \to Independence
Hall is not a matter of record, but
if you ask me, it could have been
brought about by the gain of con-
trol by one political group of ter-
mites that sneered at everything.
the Hall stood for, cunningly cre-
ated race and class hatred, formed
countless :alphabetical 'bureaus em-
powered to cripple free enterprise
and destroy States Rights.
Top-flight political termites 'cre-
ated an RFC and dished out deep
freezes, fur coats and other awards
to the faithful. The chairman of
their political clique kept a tele-
phone:1lsa~dy so that if the boys in
the lower -bracketididn't jump when
the whip was cracked he could get
'em told-and quick.
There must have 'been some dis-
loyal termites in the outfit who
were ready and willing to make a
!deal with foreign termites and
make it possible for them to join
the local group in wrecking the
Hall. These termites, on the inside
of the administration, were in atpo-
:sition to provide the foreign ter-
mites with secret information and
help them get a foothold in Inde-

termites advanced the idea that this
was all a lot of nonsense. They ad-

and turning them over to the lazy,

this "Social Security" and sat up

Daffodil Types Differ Chiefly in Size of Trumpet.
Months of Spring Color
Possible from Daffodils
Daffodils, first major flowers to
blossom in the spring, have been
cultivated in gardens almost as
long as tulips.
While limited in color range,
they vary much in form and sea-
Eon of bloom. By using all avail-
able types, and selecting early,
midseason and late varieties,, daf-
fodils can be kept blooming dur-
ing two spring months.
Varieties suitable for garden
borders are classified as:
Large Trumpets, in which the
trumpet is as large as the perianth
(surrounding petals). Colors in-
clude yellow, white and bicolor, in
Among all these types there are
some varieties which blossom
early, and others which are late,
though most varieties blossom be-
tween the two extremes. To pro-
long the flowering'season it pays to
search out these early and. late
kinds and make sure that a few
of both are included in your plan".
Early varieties include: Trum-
pet, Aerolite, all yellow; Mrs. E.
H. Krelage, all white; Beersheba,
all white; Incomparabilis, Fortune,
orange, trumpet; Sir Watkin, yellow
wnicn the trumpet is yellow ana Late varieties include all the
the perianth white, or the reverse, poets narcissi, the doubles Daphne

length trumpets, of yellow, white, ri F.r-etil, with orange cp, and

"A tough baby!,"' "
says Thomas Flanagan of Rye, New York.
"My Henry J is as rugged as any car
I've ever seen. I haven't needed a
repair job since I bought it. Believe
\ me, it saves me plenty!"
Runs on small change and a key!
A penny never travelled further! In fact, a penny and a
"Henry J" will take you a mile or more. Thirteen gallons
will fill your tank, and owners report 400 miles won't empty it!
That's because this fast-stepping Fashion Academy Award
winner is engineered to deliver up to 30 miles a gallon
.-with the snappiest performance you could ask!
And here's the pay-off! You can actually own a brand-new
Henry J for as little as $34 a month, if your trade-in
is a post-war car.
Drive the Henry J at your Kaiser-Frazer dealer's today.
There's no smarter, more dependable performer on the road
