Nimrods Set for
Prospects Look Good for Best
Season In Years; Wardens
To Enforce Regulations
With their guns cleaned and oiled
and their dogs in the pink of con-
dition, local nimrods are straining
at the leash waiting for opening of
the hunting season next Tuesday.
Reports are that this will be the
best season in years. Deer and tur-
key hunters are promised especi-
ally good prospects, while squirrel,
quail and migratory bird hunters
will have as good or better hunting
than last year.
The state game commission em-
phasizes that wildlife officers will
be more alert than ever this season
to apprehend any violators of the
game laws. "Under the law," the
comrmission-points out, "each hunter
is entitled to his fair share of the
game, and no more. Any sportsman
should be willing to abide by laws
that help conserve game for future
as well as present use. Those who
are not willing are stealing game
that belongs to other people."
Many hunters are killed or seri-
ously injured each year by some-
one's failure to observe rules of the
sport, -and caution should be ob-
served at all times. Hunters should
be particularly sure that they ac-
tually see where and at what they

By THE OFFICE CAT
With the trout running in the
bay and canal, the Izaak Walton
tribe are really having sport. Sun-
day, at the intersection of the Gulf
county canal and' the intracoastal
canal the boats were so thick you
couldn't stir 'em with a stick .
and they were really catching the
speckled trout and a few redfish.
Bream fishing has gone by the
board, what with the influx of the
'trout and low water.
Johnny Adams and a friend came
'back from Panther Swamp with two
5-pound redfish and 57 pounds of
trout, using shrimp for bait.
Lieut. Russell Grant of Tyndall
Field was displaying a nice string
of speckled trout caught at the
Highland View canal bridge.
Kenneth Brodnax told us of 18
choice redfish he caught Thursday
night of last week at the oil dock
with shrimp and cut bait.

Gonna Be What It
Wuz In Years Past
Clerk George Core Says It Is
Important That Law Be
George Core, clerk of the circuit
court, requests everyone who in-
tends to announce for public office
in the spring primary to be,sure to
come to his office in the courthouse
at Wewahitchka and fill out the
necessary papers, because it is very
important that they comply with
the new election law.
There was a day when an aspir-
ing politician had only to pay his
qualifying fee and launch an inten-
sive campaign of 'baby-kissing, fish
fry attendance and handshaking.
Now, with the new Florida election
law in force, it's an entirely differ-
First, upon his announcement or
qualification, the office-seeker must
execute an "Oath of Candidate."
This 'binds him to his political
party and asserts he is qualified
for the race. Further, it must list
the names and addresses of his
campaign treasurer a nd deputies
and the name and address of his
campaign depository, which may be
any bank authorized under state
laws to transact business in Florida.
Next, the candidate must execute
a "Loyalty Oath," affirming his sup-
port of the Constitution of the
United States and his rejection of

part of the pre-election vote solici-

'Loran' Detachment Located
At Cape San Bias Part of
of Worldwide Network
A lot of people in Port St. Joe,
including the editor of The Star,
have become acquainted with the
men who are stationed at Cape San
Blas as a detachment of the Air-
ways and Air Communications Ser-
vice (boy, that's a mouthful), but
very few of us know exactly what
they are doing down there on the
sandspit south of this city nor ex-
actly what the AAGS is.

The 1858-2 AAOS detachment at
Cape San Blas is one of two detach-
ments assigned to the 1858th AACS
Loran Squadron at Kessler Air
Force Base, Mississippi, and is one
of several such detachments in the
area, forming a chain.
This "chain" is actually a navi-
gational facility for use by both sur-
face ships and aircraft, but since it
is a United States Air Forces oper-
ation, its primary purpose is to pro-
vide an accurate navigational aid
to planes of the air force. During
hurricane season, this facility is
used to track and position any dis-
T turbance by reports sent in by air-

Blazes Caused By Exploding Kero-
sense Stove, Flooded Oil
Heater and Backfire
The St. Joe fire department was
called to Highland View Thursday
morning of last week when one of
the W. C. Forehand cottages occu-
pied by Mr. and Mrs. "Red" Woods
caught fire when a kerosene stove
exploded. Mrs. Wood's had gone to
the home of her next-door neighbor,
leaving the stove lighted. The fam-
ily lost all their possessions.
Fire Chief Durel Brigman stated
that less damage would have been
done had residents of Highland
View co-operated better in carrying
water to the fire truck, there being
no fire plugs in the community. He
ures better co-o nneration if ron-.
the electronic equipment is-.very
complex because accuracy of two
millionths of a second is required.
Comparing this to an ordinary
watch, it would mean it could only
gain or lose one second in six years.

Californian Looking for
Missing Wife in This Area
A California man who followed
the trail of his missing wife across
the U. S. is searching for her in
this section of Florida and has of-
fered a $100 reward to the person
who can help him contact her. The
reward is on deposit with the Flor-

said that his bride of nine months

be driving a green DeSoto sedan,

eyes, friendly disposition. She often
wears slack or shorts and may not
be traveling alone.
Bennett asks that anyone know-

Our Country Right or Wrong
CLOCK WRONG, BUT NOBODY CARES
(Reprinted from the Wakulla County News),
A couple of weeks past we mentioned that Wa-
kulla county was the only county, perhaps in the
world, where the courthouse clock was always
wrong and nobody gave a whoop.
One man called. our hand-as he felt that it
was intended as a slap at the county. Brother,
we are, in our own way, bragging. We, now that
we have become accustomed to it, are plumb
hog-wild about this complete disregard for time
that is so evident here. It is unusual and we love
A perfect example of this was demonstrated
just this week when a visiting friend of ours
looked up at the courthouse clock. Said clock
quietly stated it to be 12:05. The guy said, "Gosh,
I didn't know it was that late." We told him
not to pay any attention to that, as it was possibly
only about ten-thirty. But the guy, being a slave
to time, just had to know what time it was. We
took him into Strickland's Grocery, and the clock
there, which hasn't run for many years, was at 4
o'clock. This didn't help a bit, and so we checked
in and looked at the one on the wall in Moore's
barber shop. Albert explained that the current
had been off for a couple ofhours during the
night and he had set the clock by guess, but it
was "about right."
The poor guy, being a slave to clocks and hav-
ing to know what time it was, finally cut his visit
short. Us, shux, who cares, we have learned that
time is something to use in order to live, go fish-
ing, or just mess around and relax, and we have
learned that time is not something controlled or
governed by a fool clock. And we, for one, do
not want that IBM clock on the courthouse fixed.
We like it just the way it is-never right.
Bet the IBM people's faces ,4ould be red if
they knew that one of their clocks was satisfac-
tory because it was always wrong.
People who want everything "guaranteed" in
this world have to take the surrender of freedom
that goes with it. The only organization that can
"guarantee" is the government, and the only way
the government can guarantee is to put us all in
a virtual chaingang and divide the potatoes we
raise.-Neligh (Nebr.) Leader.
Another problem faced by the military is how
to get a plane off the assembly line before it be-
comes obsolete.-Jluncau (Alaska) Empire.

General Hoyt Vandenberg, Chief of Staff of the
United States Air Force, has made a startling state-
ment one which most Americans find hard to
believe. He had said that at best we could knock
down only 30 out of every 100 enemy planes attacking the
United States. That means that at least 7 out of 10 would
get through. Despite our traditional attitude that "it can't
happen here," we must believe these facts.

Engineers Not Yet Ready
To Go Ahead With Bay
Improvement at Apalach
A project recommended by army
engineers for Apalachicola Bay has
not yet been accepted as feasible
'by the board of engineers for rivers
and harbors, according to wor4 re-
ceived from Washiogton this week.
The project recommended by the
division engineer provides for, a
channel 10 feet deep and 100 feet
,wide in Apalachicola Bay across St.
George Island to within 300 feet of
the Gulf shore, thence increasing in
width to 200 feet at the shore and
continuing with this width to the
Gulf, and for two rubble-mound jet-
ties, each about 740 feet long, to
stabilize the channel, all at an esti-
mated federal first cost of $228,700,
with $15,000 annually thereafter for
maintenance in addition to that.
It is the belief that the improved
channel would not at this time be
used to the extent estimated by
the division engineer.
A hearing will be held in Wash-
ington by the board of engineers on
December 10 to allow all parties in-
terested in the project to submit
statements and arguments bearing
on the need for the justification of
the government undertaking the im-

State Now Traversed-
By Diagonal Route
Road Board Announces Approval
For First Federally-Numbered
Highway On the Bias
Something new in the field of
highway development came to pass
for Florida yesterday as Alfred Mc-
Kethan, road board chairman, an-
nounced approval of the first fed-
erally-nun~bered route to traverse
the peninsula diagonally.
McKethan said the route number-
ing committee of the American As-
sociation of State Highway Officials
has agreed to the extension of High-
way 98, which passes through Port
St. Joe, from its present eastern
terminus at Apalachicela to West
Palm Beach by way of Newport,
Perry, Cross City, Brooksville, Lake-
land, Frostproof, Okeechobee and
The new route will be designated
on the 1952 state highway maps to
be released for publication in De-
cember. For the present, the new
through high ay will 'be routed
through Tallahassee and down the
peninsula because the .Perry-New-
port cat-off is still under construc-
tion. The Okeechdbee-West Palm
Beach leg of the route will also be
designated as temporary on the '52
maps because the relocation of the
road there, via Indiantown in Martin
county, is projected.
"We deem this new development
a great stride in highway progress
in Florida," said McKethan. "While
Highway 98 extended is the first-
federal diagonal route obtained for
the state, it follows a policy the
state road department established
several years ago of designating
diagonal state routes as short cuts
to save driving time and distance
Highway 98 extended will travel
common with US 19 south from
Tallahassee to Chassahowitzka, in
Citrus county, State Road 700 from
there to Bartow in Polk county, US
17 south to Fort Meade and east
from there to Frostproof to recon-
nect with State Road 700 to West

One-Man Army-Police Force That
Patrols the Universe To Keep

Meet "Gort," the terrifying giant
robot who roams at will in "The
Day the Earth Stood Still," exciting
science-fiction thriller now playing
at the Port Theater.
"Gort" is supposed to be a one-
man army-police force that patrols
the universe to maintain peace
among the planets.
In "The Day the Earth Stood
Still," the robot accompanies space
visitor Michael Rennie as his ser-
vant-bodyguard in their travels to
Earth where together they threaten

"Gort," the product of a planet
5000 years more advanced than the
Earth, is neither animal, vegetable
or mineral. He is almost nine feet
tall, has a 10-inch Cyclops eye, s
impervious to gunfire and boats
He walks like a man and appears
to think and act with human i telli-
gence, although he doesn't talk.
With his powerful electronic eye he
can disintegrate guns, mel tanks
and heavy weapons and A dissolve
human flesh. He can reIv'e men
from the dead, knock down brick
walls and has a fluid nletal skin
which cannot 'be pierced by any
known weapon. '
It's a "must" picture.1

Now, the candidate can spend no
money except through a three-sec-

copy) includes an order authorizing

the campaign treasurer or candi-

finally the order for payment, also

The entire sheet must be presented
to the depository by the claimant
in order to obtain his money. No

As a sort of double check on the
candidate's purity, he also is re-

the amount of their donations. Both

Florida Shrub Called
Needlepalm Is Rated As One of
Florida's Most Beauti-
By CAROL H. BECK
Botanist, Florida Park Service
It is scandalous to call the needle-
palm, one of Florida's most beauti-
ful shrubs, a "vegetable porcupine."
But the needlepalm's short and
stubby stem, which rises out of the
ground for only a few feet, re-
sembles a large porcupine, and it is
so covered with long needles that
even a mockingbird could not find
a resting place on it.
Since its stem grows'only a foot
or two above the ground, the bot-
tom leaves arch to touch the ground
while those in the center of the
plant are upright, making a beauti-
ful dome-shaped plant about 10 feet
The large fan leaves of the
needlepalm blend the daintiness of
a fern with the tropical luxuriance
of a palm, for they are cut com-
pletely to the base, deep green on
the top, silvery on the underside.
The needlepalm loves the deep
shade of other trees and does its
best under their protecting limbs.
Not only is the appearance of the
needlepalm's stem something like
a porcupine, but also it has one
animalistic habit rarely found in
plants. The good animal mother
hides her babies, but the good plant
mother usually scatters them as far
as she is able to do so. The needle-
palm, like an animal mother, hides
her small black flowers in that nest
of needles. When the bright red
seeds are ripe, they too stay hidden
there, and only squirrels, with the
highest I Q can figure out a way to
get these seeds, which often rot in
their bed of needles.
Since the seeds so often rot, the
plant must find another way to re-
produce and does. It resorts to the
familiar plant trick of sending out
underground etems to start new
plants in new locations.
The needlepalm can be observed
at Florida Caverns State Park, near
Marianna; Torreya State Park, near
Bristol; in the ravine of Gold Head
Branch State Park, near Keystone
Heights, and in Highlands Ham-
mock State Park, near Sebring.
