Good Crowd Turns Out
To Hear Warren's Talk
Tells of Benefits Received By Gulf
County During Administration; \
Seeks No Other Office
Governor Fuller Warren brought
what he described as the "true
story" of his administration to the
people of Gulf county Friday night
at Wewahitchka. His talk was made
in the high school gymnasium due
to the inclement weather, and a
large crowd was on hand to hear
Warren, who was introduced by
Representative George Tapper of
this city, said that after his term of
office expires he would be a "fugi-
tive from public office," adding that
"instead of running for future po-,
litical office, I will be.running from
it. I have achieved the ultimate of
my political ambitions,"
The governor's talk at Wewa was

Out From the 1951
Christmas S e a I
County Chairman Urges Everyone
To Give Generously In Fight
A jolly, pixy version of the age-
less Santa Claus-from red, fur-
trimmed cap to copious white beard
-peers out engagingly from the
41951 Christmas Seals which resi-
dents of Gulf. county, received in,
the mail this week.
Conducted by the Gulf County
Health & Tuberculosis Association,
the 1951 Christmas Seal sale, to
raise funds for the anti-tuberculosis
work of the association during, the
coming year, opened Monday 'and
will continue until Christmas.
"Santa Claus, t he traditional
bearer of gifts, is a particularly fit-
ting motif for the seal," said Harry
Saunders, chairman of the seal sale
campaign. "Although we still live
a tremendous job ahead of us 'be-
fore tuberculosis is under control,
the gifts of the American people'in
the form of Christmas Seaop.ur-
chases through the.years have niade
possible great progress against the
"Santa Claus on the seal also
points up the fact that with the
purchase of 'Christmas Seals, each
one of us is actually giving our-
selves a certain measure of health
insurance, for'with Christmas Seals
we help finance services which are
offered to protect us against the
dread disease, tuberculosis." ."
Stating that the silirit of unsel-
fish giving "has always character-
ized the people of Gulf county,"
Saunders said he was "confident
that the Christmas Seal sale will be
a success, because the people of
our county are- actively behind the
tuberculosis association as it works
to halt the spread of a disease
which kills more people than all
other infectious diseases combined."

issue of the rag.
One of the biggest catches of mul-
let ever recorded here in a 24-hour
period was brought in between 2
o'clock Thursday afternoon and 7
o'clock Friday morning of last week
near the entrance to the canal at
Highland View by the Gulf Fish-
eries and the Kilbourn Fish Com-
pany of this city and the Cook Fish
Company of Panama City, which
sent two-boats here:for the strike
The crews worked throughout the
night to bring in the fish.
Better than 198,000 pounds of the
valuable food fish were hauled in
and it is estimated that several
thousand pounds more werepicked
up by individuals. In fact, the city
was flooded with mullet and A. V.
Pratt of the Gulf Fisheries reports
that a number of enterprising indi-
viduals who had garnered two or
three hundred pounds of fish en-
deavored to sell them back to him.
Some of the fish weighed five to
six pounds each and practically all
were loaded with roe, both red and
white. The greater part of the catch
went out on refrigerator trucks to
four of our neighboring states, Al-
abama, Georgia, North Carolina and
South Carolina, and to Ohio.
Wholesaling at from 16c to 19c
per pound, the estimated value of
the catch was 'between $32,000 and
$37,000, according to Mr. Pratt. Re-
tailing at from 25c to 30c, the even-
tual consumers would pay between
$49,000 and $60,000, not'counting
the roe, which sells at a consider-
ably higher price.
Hauls like this are the commer-
cial fisherman's dream, but they
occur very seldom.
Gene Farris Awarded

Word was received here Tuesday
by Mr. and Mrs. W. F. Farris of
Kenney's 'Mill that their son, Cpl.
Ernest Gene Farris, has received
the French Croix de Guerre for ser-
vices as a forward observer in the
capturing of Heairtbreak Hill and

were under the impression that he
was in a rear area at the time.
Cpl. Thomas F. Farris, who also
served in Korea, writes that he will

table this year, as he was leaving

He recovered one stolen car, in-

It's good to know that at least
somebody gets a break under your
friend (he ain't ours) Harry Tru-
man's new tax bill which went into
effect November 1 and placed an
additional burden on the little man.
The new law cancels out the
heretofore imposed 20% federal tax
on admission to high school athletic
games, which should be good news
to our local schools, as a 20-cent
"take" by Uncle Sam out of every
dollar of admissions at times has
meant the difference between a
profit and a loss on some events.
The new .bill also gives a Ibreak

shows, fairs and other entertain-

is also lifted on admissions of this

Thanksgiving makes us think of roast tur-
key, cranberry sauce, football games, and family
gatherings. It's a holiday that has become so
typically American that we have forgotten the
hardships and the fortitude of the Pilgrims and
the real reason for setting aside a day of Thanks-
Primarily, our Pilgrim forefathers came to
'America to worship God "each according to the
dictates of his own conscience" and to escape re-
ligious persecution. Woven into out American
way of life, the freedom of worship is one of our
"inalienable rights" which cannot be destroyed
under our democratic form of government.
Founded on religious faith, our republic's
standard of living and its production under the
free enterprise system is the best in the world.
Be thankful you're an American.

Our Country "Right or Wrong
TAXES COST MORE THAN FOOD
You readers of The Star who work for wages
have undoubtedly noticed the larger bite taken
from your.pay check since November 1 when
the new tax levy of your friend (.he ain't ours)
Harry .T;uman went into effect.
But perhaps what you didn't know is that you
are paying more for taxes than you pay for food!
Mebbe you don't believe that, but here are
some recently compiled figures-and they were
compiled before the new tax rate went into ef-
fect: In 1940 the nation spent .$17,700,000,000
for food and paid $12,700,000,000 in taxes. Last
year, by contrast, the food bill was $52,500,000,-
000 and the tax bill was $57,000,000,000. Your
guess is as good as ours as to what it is today and
what it will be next year.
You don't actually know of all the taxes you
pay. Some are paid directly in income, property
taxes and similar levies. Others are paid indi-
rectly, as in the "case of excise and so-called
"luxury" taxes. Others still are hidden in the cost
of every service and article you buy-even the
bread you eat has-about 20 hidden taxes. in it,
although you can't taste 'em. All told, taxes to-
day are taking close to a third of your income.
Such heavy taxation is undermining the incen-
tive to work and take risks; the ability and will-
ingness of people to go into business for them-
selves; it is eliminating opportunity for the indi-
vidual and for business; it causes inflation, with
consequent loss of confidence in the value of the
dollar; it has burdened the low-income group
with a weight of taxation which, up to now, was
known only in the days of the greatest despots.
Today it is you, the "little man," who must
bear the main burden of taxation. You, and you
alone, out of your pay check, must pay for the
bulk of any new tax increases.
Are you, the working people, going to continue
to let the government waste your money by the
billions, while your take-home pay shrinks and
shrinks because of the tax collector?
There is only one solution-write to your con-
