FOR SECOND WIN OF SEASON
The St. Joe Sharks chalked up
their second win of the season Mon-

Booths were set up in the entrance
and cakes, pies, hot dogs, coffee

THE VICTIMS NEED "CARE"
If the family next door were burned out of
their home by fire, neighbors would rush to help
-to offer whatever was needed.
It is hard to realize the effects of a fire when
the flames are 10,000 miles away. In South Korea
millions of helpless civilians-many of them chil-
dren-have suffered the conflagrations of war.
Homes have been destroyed, all possessions lost,
normal means of livelihood wiped out. At least
5,000,000 persons are homeless refugees. The
various governments have pledged supplies to
United Nations relief pools, but supplemental,
individual aid is still necessary to meet the des-
perate need for clothing, blankets and food.
The Port St. Joe Junior and Senior Women's
Clubs, in conjunction with the General Federa-
tion of Women's Clubs, are sponsoring a Thanks-
giving-season campaign to send CARE food and

BUILD FREEDOM WITH YOUTH
The "Build Freedom With Youth" program
sponsored by the General Federation of Wo-
men's Clubs and in which the Port St. Joe Wo-
man's Club is joining, emphasizes sharing the
responsibilities of American citizenship while en-
joying its privileges. Only one thing is supremely
important now, and that is to build together a
new kind of world. It is this "togetherness" that
is so important in this project, the fact that our
young people are working together to promote
some project of welfare for their communities in
co-operation with members of the women's clubs
and other civic organizations.
It has been the community improvement as-
sociations that has helped Port St. Joe and all
small communities to promote and maintain li-
braries, playgrounds with supervised recreational
facilities and many other projects that pertain to
the advancement of abundant living. But now
what is sought is an over-all picture of the com-
munity to determine its needs and to develop
projects that will meet those needs.

First Ferryboat On
On Display At Park
Canoe, 23 Feet Long, Estimated To
Be 250 Years Old, Is Dis-
covered Near Bristol
It may be the first ferryboat ever
used on the Apalachicola, this 250-
year-old dugout. Now it rests in dig-
nified quiet at Torreya State Park,
located 13 miles northeast of Bris-
tol, but two and a half centuries
ago, its launching must have com-
pared in importance to that of
some great ocean liner of today.
Students who go to the Torreya
park today have reconstructed the
scene in the long ago when this
great dugout was launched by a
group of Indians encamped at the
mouth of a small clear stream
emptying into the board turbid Ap-
Undoubtedly, they say, great ex-
Scitement accompanied the launch-
ing, for it was a noble vehicle, hol-
lowed out of a giant cypress log
by fire and keen-edged stone tools,
a log that had taken the combined
strength and skill of a tribe to hew
down and snake out of the nearby
The Indians have long gone, but
the evidence is unmistakable that
this canoe became the means by
which Indians for many genera-
tions were carried back and forth
across t he Apalachicola River,
there where it sweeps toward the
Gulf of Mexico between high banks.
Then the white man came. and the
canoe disappeared from its route,
and for more than a hundred years
it lay hidden.
In June of 1936 a foreman of the
CCC camp at Torreya State Park
was crossing the ferry from Bristol
to Blountstown and detected what
appeared to be a hollowed-out log
on a sandy bank. A closer exami-
nation disclosed that it was a ca-
noe, a dugout canoe in good state
of preservation. It was carefully
excavated out of the sand and mud
and taken to the park. where it
can be seen today as an object of
historic interest and the subject of
The canoe is 23 feet in length, 2
feet wide and 12 inches deep from
top to bottom. One end is flattened
into a platform, evidently for the
steersman to stand on. Scientists
calculate it was used as a ferry ca-
noe more than 250 years ago.
New Elections Laws

The political ferment at Talla-

Brailey Odham of Sanford, offi-
cially announced candidate for gov-
ernor, blasted potential opponents
who, he said, have set up headquar-
ters and are beating the bushes but
won't comply with the law. Minor
candidates for governor brushed off
the campaign law, saying no one
would enforce it.
Secretary of State Bob Gray and
Attorney General Dick Ervin have
tried manfully to bring public un-

but both seem to agree that en-
forcement of the law is in someone
Newspapers and radio stations
