Store Is Remodeled
You've probably noticed the last

which has undergone a general ren-
ovation. Glenn happily reports the
completion of this job and the fact
that he is installing an air condi-
A new stockroom balcony has
been added in the rear, which al-

tional space, on the main floor. The
inside of the store has been newly
painted in a combination of white
and a soft spring blue, with fixtures
and trimmings in natural wood.
The ladies' ready-to-wear and the
shoe departments have been com-
pletely changed and enlarged, with
full-length mirrors in both depart-
ments, and d res'sing rooms. All
counters have been rearranged to
make all merchandise more acces-
sible and giving more aisle space.
New and better lighting has been'
added to make selection quicker
Glenn regrets the inconvenience
caused customers while this work
has been in progress and suggests
that you come in now for a look.
He's got some "Back To Normalcy"

EVEN A SPONGE CAN ONLY ABSORB
For almost 15 years The Star has been but $2.00 per
year to our subscribers, but now we are compelled to up
the subscription rate to $3.00 per year, beginning April 1.
Cost of paper, ink, labor (of which we are out of 'at the
present), postage, machinery, type and type. metal, and
everything else that goes into the production of a. news-
paper, including food and clothing for the editor, not to
mention the price of haircuts, have, in some instances, more
than doubled. Even a sponge can only absorb so
much, and The Star finds itself unable to continue' to ab-
sorb these continued rises in the cost of everything.
We will give our subscribers a break, however, in that
we will allow them to pay their subscriptions two years in
advance at the present rate of $2.00 per year. No matter
if you have just paid up, if you desire to take advantage
of this opportunity to save a buck or two, juststep up and

Expert Bait and Fly Casting
: Fishin' for Fun," a two-reel sound
motion picture starring Ben Hard-
esty, U. S. professional all-around
bait and fly-casting champion, vas
shown to an audience of some 50
* members and guests of the Kiwanis
at Hotel St. Joe last week.
The film presented a comprehen-
sive exhibition in the art of fishing
and casting. Hardesty, a plain and
'fancy fisherman who truly labors
for love, was described by Ted Hu-
sing, who narrated thd film, "as a
guy who drops 'enmt in a teacup as
far away as you can see it." The
champion gave an exciting and dra-
matic display of angling for trout,
i bass, bonefish, sailfish and tarpon.
SFor the salt water enthusiasts,
the champ engaged in a battle to
the finish with bait-slamming sail-
fish off the Florida coast, and for
the climax he exhibited a dynamic
display of landing a 100-pound tar-
pon on light fresh-water tackle in a
colorful scene shot in the Shark
River jungle country of Florida.
Without a gaff and with bait-cast-
ing tackle, Hardesty hooked, played
and landed a beautiful silver king

Our Country &W Right or Wrong
PATTERN FOR MURDER
Our interest, as conservationists and sportsmen
of Gulf county, in the fate of the Granby Dam
and the 100 miles of that historic fishing stream,
the Colorado River, which the dam has de-
stroyed, is not a matter of geography. Whether
near or far from that debacle we must view it as
a key operation that may well set the pattern for
the extension of the Reclamation Bareau's high-
handed disregard of congressional directives, to
include our own favorite fishing streams here in
Florida in its mad rush toward the devastation
into which we are about to be launched.
For 40 miles below the dam, the Colorado is
today a stretch of dried hardheads, with only a
trickle of water, according to a story in the March
Sports -ifilhi Fishing is gone below, and in the
lake above the dam, the water was so soupy last
June that a pebble an inch under water was in-
visible. No fish can live long there.
The same thing may happen on the Apalachi-
cola River with completion of the Jim Woodruff
and the three other dams in that project, and if
it does, our famed Dead Lakes will be nothing
but a mudhole, its 80 square miles of the finest
fresh water fishing in the United States reduced
to practically nothing, leaving a few channels
carrying the small flow of the Chipola River, as
the height of the lakes is controlled by the flow of
the Apalachicola River.
This brigandage cannot be countenanced. If
Reclamation gets away with this deal, it will
spread this disregard of the public's interest to
every stream in the country and our fishing will
be a thing of the past.
No new legislation is required to bring Rec-
lamation to heel. Explicit directives from con-
gress are adequate, if followed, to protect our
streams from wanton destruction. But to date,
Reclamation is completely disregarding these di-
rectives. That is where we anglers come in thru
our congressmen, to let Reclamation know who
is the boss. To save our fishing, write the Florida
congressional delegation today!
Adnette McClellan, publisher of the Okeecho-
bee News (incidentally, Ammon McClellan is
also listed in the masthead of the News as pub-
lisher), said last week: "We are deeply rooted'
in this, our community, and we have cast our
lot with you. We believe in this section. This is
the best part of a great and growing Florida."
The italics are ours, and right now we hasten
to correct Adnette, for the best part of Florida is
right here in the Florida panhandle, and particu-
larly around Port St. Joe.
Every time a battleship fires a salvo it costs
the taxpayers $24,750. At last we've discovered
what the term "financial boom' means!

Probably Only Three
In Race for Governor
T-he closing date of March 15 for
qualifications for governor may
bring no new entries, and thus the
field will be limited to three bona
fide candidates, Dan McCarty and
Alto Adams of Fort Pierce and Brai-
ley Odham of Sanford. All are out
beating the bushes this week as
the first sound wagons swung into
operation and ads began to appear
in the newspapers.
A federal jury convicted Bill Hen-
drix, Tallahassee Klansman, of
sending defamatory matter through
the mails. He was sentenced to a
year in federal prison on each of
three counts and fined $750. The
fine was promptly paid- by a by
stander and Hendrix was freed on
parole for two years. The convic-
tion was for a misdemeanor, which
does not disqualify Hendrix from
making the race for governor.
Neither Hendrix nor three or four
other announced aspirants for the
governorship have as yet paid their
qualifyingfe es. '

Another crisis in the-pre-electiont
campaign has passed with word-
from Attorney General Dick Ervin
that hill-billy bands are legitimate
stage dressing for political speak-
Ervin ruled that such a campaign
aid was permissible and commented
that frequently in his campaign
hill-billy music seemed to interest
the audience more than his speeches
calling attention to the state's need
for his services.

Today's the big day for those of
you girls who're looking for a hus-
band! This is the best op-
portunity you'll have for another
four years for today is Feb-
ruary 29 and it's leap year!
Why they call it "leap year" is
more than we know perhaps
because eligible men leap from the
path of designing females. No satis-
factory explanation has ever been
offered of the custom for women
to woo during leap year. However,
in 1288 a law was enacted in Scot-
land that "it is statut and ordaint
that during the rein of hir maist
blessit Megeste, for ilk year
kuowne as lepe year, ilk mayden
ladye of bothe high and lowe es-
tait shall hae liberate to bespeke ye
man she likes, albeit he refuses to
talk hir to be his lawful wyfe, he
shall be mulcted in ye sum of ane
pundis or less, as his estait may
be; except and awis gif he can
make it appeared that he is betrothit
ane either woman he then shall be
There you are, girls! .Go
out and git 'em! And notice
that mulcted" clause in there! If the
guy of your choice, be he "unbe-
throthit," refuses to be dragged to
the altar for a halter, you can nick
him for "ane pundis" (about five
bucks) if he's fairly well off-less
if he's down somewhere near the
pauper class. Bet there'll be
a lot of bachelors become tempor-
arily "bethrothit" sudden-like.
All you eligible bachelors had
better take to. the woods for a time,
especially the most desirable ones
we can think of offhand like George
Core, George Tapper, Cecil Costin
Jr., Mickey Stone oopss, we almost
got Vic Anderson in here-but he's
already got a ball and chain), Ar-
thur Lupton, Police Officer M. A.
Kelly say, come to think of it,
there aren't so many unwed hus-
bands as one might think, so bet-
ter start early, girls, and get the
pick of the available crop. .
Look at that handsome picture
of Fdy Scheffer Jr., on the front
page! Really, though, he does
not come up to his billing. When
you meet up with him in his cam-
paigning for county commissioner,
take a look at that double chin he's
developing almost in the same
class as Ye Ed's. Yeah, and
do you remember that picture of
bur estimable sheriff, Byrd Parker,
we had in the February 1 issue of
The Star? That was taken
'way back in '38. .. Somehow
or other these candidates don't
seem to want people to know how
they really look might cause
some of the voters to think again
We understand that W. B. Fer-
rell is temporarily laid up after
losing a terrific bout with a sheet
of plyboard. Seems Ben was
fixing to do a bit of carpentering
and while carrying the board across
the shop it wangled a toehold or

took to the rough life of strong
drink and beachcomlbing.
No more sweet water for them-
they liked salt water. No trellises
and pampering--they headed for
the lands of the rolling sand dunes
on the shores of the deep blue sea.
Fortunately they are rugged char-
acters, whose thick stems store wa-
ter and food, and they have a pen-
chant for taking root about every
six inches of their length. Thus,
they creep over the beach, holding
tight with roots all the way to a
hundred or more feet in length. If
something cuts the vine, both ends
keep on growing.
Alike in most habits, the railroad
vine and the goatsfoot vine dress
differently. The railroad vine likes
white flowers and heart-shaped
leaves, while the goatsfoot vine pre-
fers purple flowers and leaves
shaped like the foot track of a
Blowing sand catches on these
long vines across the beach and
makes small hummocks over them
which in turn catch more sand un-
til a rolling sand dune takes shape.
Next the vines start climbing the
dune, twining and twisting over it.
until the sand dune must feel like
a fly caught in a spider's web.
Finally, with the help of a few
other plants, such a's sea oats and
greenbriar, the sand dune is caught
and held as a stationary sandhill.
These interesting plants grow all
along the coasts of Florida and in
this section -may be seen at St.
