Band Boosters In First
Meeting of School Year
Officers Elected With Wilbur L.
Smith Succeeding J. R. tmithi
As President of Associatil p
The Port St. Joe Band Boosters
Association held its first meeting
of the 1952-53 school year Thursday
night of last week at the band
house, .and at that time John R.
Smith, retiring president, turned
the gavel over to Wilbur L. Smith
(no relation)., president for the en-
suing year. Others officers named
were Terry Hinote, vice-president,
,and Sidney Jammes, treasurer. A
secretary will be elected at a fu-
ture meeting, Mrs. Jammes serving
in that capacity temporarily.
The association laid plans for
ways to assist the high school band
in purchasing music, repairing in-
struments and buying five more
band uniforms. A committee was
also appointed to distribute the uni-
forms Tuesday night to members
of the band.
This will be the third season for
the organization. Under Harry Mc-
Knight, the first president, the as-
sociation purchased 35 metal music
stands, bought six majorette cos-
tumes and purchased 'extra music
for the band. The most important
work of that year was laying the,
groundwork-of raising the fund to'
the music department of the' St
Joe schools from the county board-
of education from $50 to $1000
Last year, under the leadership
of J. R. Smith, the organization
bought 30 new band uniforms and?
arranged for another $1000 from the
school board for this year.
The parents of the band members
recognize how fortunate this school
is to have such an able bandmaster
as Daniel Temkin. Mr. Temkin at
this meeting told of his- plaits to
have a larger and better music de-
partment for this school year.
Residents of the city and ad-
jacent areas are urged to stand be-
hind the Band Boosters Association
and offer any assistance required
when called upon, since a first class
school band is not only a great
credit to our school but also re-
dounds to the benefit of the entire

Gladiolus Circle Hears
Tips On Bulb Planting
Mrs. Roy Hallman gave some
timely tips on bulb planting to the,
Gladiolus Circle of the Port St. Joe
Garden Club, which met Thursday!
of last week at the home of Mrs.
J. C. Belin.
Some of her suggestions were to
plant the bulbs' in well-drained soil,
fertilize well with manure when
planting, dig every two or three
years and: divide. Some of the
bulbs that can be planted now, she
told her listeners, are .narcissus,
Easter lilies, daffodils, amaryllis
and 'Dutch iris. She said that the
best way to grow. tulips in Florida
is to put the bulbs in the refriger-
ator for several weeks before set-
ting out. She also said to dig cal-
a'd'itms when foliage- turns brown,
a'nd store' through the winter.
Fifteen old. members and three
n'ew memlters, Mrs. W. L. Thorpe,
Miss Lois Milton and. Mrs. Wayne
Ashley, attended the meeting and
plants and projects for the year's
work were discussed. The circle
also agreed on care of the Fifth
Street parkway and continuation of
tree planting as their projects for
Blue ribbons were awarded to
Mrs. Hallman, who also won the
door prize, and to Mrs. Terry Hi-

Our Country Right or Wrong
NEW DATE FOR THE HISTORY BOOKS
What may turn out to be the most momentous
meeting in our history since a group of thought-
ful and courageous Americans signed a Declara-
tion in a meeting house in Philadelphia 176 years
ago, took place in New York on Friday, Septem-
It will probably be some time before we are
fully aware of the area of agreement reached by
Eisenhower and Taft on this historic occasion,
but if there was a meeting of minds sufficient to
enable Senator Taft to go all out for the man who
beat him in the nomination fight, we have no
fear of the voters' verdict in November. The two-
party system will be saved. The Republican party
will have repaired its mangled prestige. The na-
tion will be equipped to hose out the halls of
government and douse the purlieus of federal
authority with disinfectant even those that
have already been squirted with perfume. There
will be respect for law in the land, and respect
for the intelligence of the ordinary citizen .
that have been so sadly lacking for 20 years.
General Ike is steadily gaining in his command
of the strange political terrain. He has told the
people by radio that the nation has become "the
prey of bare-faced looters," and his order-of-the-
day to all Americans is to turn out November 4
and turn out "the fear-mongers, the quack doc-
tors and the bare-faced looters." Otherwise, he
warned, "it will be a long time before we get
"We are not trying to win an election," he has
said. "All of us are bound together in one great
thing: To get this chance to show that during
the next four years we can provide this country
with a government that will lead toward peace,
toward sanity, toward solvency, toward all those
things that make an American's life worth living.
That is what we are trying to do."
Byrds Move To Alabama
Mrs. Ronald Childers and chil-
dren spent last week-end in York,
Ala., with .MTr and Mrs. Tom Byrd,
who recently moved to that city
from their home at St. Joe Beach.
Within recent years research men
have developed two tough materials
that help make jet engines practi-
cal: Nimonic 80 and Inconel "X".
Both are alloys of nickel.
Success with Inconel
Angry owners of a particular cor-,
mercial refrigerator blamed the
manufacturer for failure of the unil
and jubseqqent food spoilage. A hur-
ried investigation revealed failure
of the diaphragm in the temperature
control. The diaphragm material,-
weakened by constant comprqaaor
pulsations, stiffened and failed un.
der temperature changes. The prob-
lem was resolved by substituting
Inconel, a nickel-chromium-iron al-
loy, strip for the diaphragm.

She started to speak, but a figure

There was a pause, Rose leaped
to her feet. "Mr. Hunt was ask-

Slowly Jerry relaxed. Rose had

Ma k e s Physical
Wreck Out of Kay
Finds Muscles Out of Kilter
After 20-Year Layoff
By RUSSELL KAY
Way back in the days when we
used to have Republican presidents
and street cars, and the only flying
saucer anybody ever seen was the
one the wife threw at you, I did a
lot of bowling and was fairly good
at it. Then I drifted away from the
sport and hadn't been near a bowl-
ing alley for about 20 years..
Last week my athletically in-
clined young daughter and some of
her equally vivacious girl friends
inveigled me into joining them for
a bowling party. Remembering the
good old days, I visioned the old
ball flying down the alley to smash
out a strike or a spare. I even went
so far as to do a little bragging
about how I used to build up a
Before I realized what was hap-
pening, I found myself all diked
out in a pair of rented bowling
shoes, hefting the balls: to find
one that suited. I expressed the
opinion that I might be a little
rusty, seeing I hadn't played for so
long, ,but when my turn came I ap-
proached the alley with complete
My girl companions sat quietly
watching to see how the old ma-
estro did his stuff. I could tell by
the expression on their faces that
they expected a strike, or at least
Holding the ball up level with my
nose I took a good sight down the
alley, then, in what I considered
my :best professional style, I let
her roll. I'm not exactly sure what
happened, but it seemed that a
whole fess of unused and neglected
muscles, 'brought into play for the
first time in years, just naturally
refused to function. For a. minute I
thought I wasn't going to get my
fool fingers out to let the .ball go,
and visioned myself flying down
the alley with it like a tail, follow-
ing a comet.
The anticipated crash of the old
ball hitting the bull's eye and send-
ing the pins in all directions didn't
occur. After skittering half way
down the course, the ball rolled
into the gutter and, while it may
have been my imagination, it
seemed 'that every single one of
those tenpins stood there and
thumbed their nose at me.
Graciously my girls friends ex-
pressed their sympathy, said they
were sorry my foot slipped just as
I was ready to go, and predicted I
would get 'em all next roll for a
spare. A ?few minutes earlier, 'be-
fore I threw that first ball, I might
have agreed with them, but inside
my old carcass every bone and
muscle disputed their statement.
My left hip felt like it was un-
hinged: There, was a very unpleas-
ant twitch in my right groin, and
my arm' felt like somebody had
tied a knot in it.
I should have 'bowed out and or-
dered 'a nice big, dish of crow, then
and there, but being a man of cour-
age and fortitude, I reached.for the
returned ball and taking it easier
this time, managed to release it
more or less gently on the side of
the alley. It rolled leisurely down
the center, hit the No. 1 pin dead on
the nose and when the dust had
cleared I found I had a score of 9!
Talk about lucky accidents that
was one for the book. -
I envied the ease and grace with
which the girls performed. While
they didn't set the world on fire in
building up a score, they made me
look and feel like a total loss.
Fortifying myself with a cokei, I
stepped up for my second franme in
fear and trembling, and 'brother,.
that trembling was real! Disl'e.-uted
gristle was protesting as loud- as:
ever, :but ignoring it, I exerci4 a
mind over matter like a Chri~mzan
Scientist. With ,a mighty effort I"
started the ;ball on itsv way and,
knowing I' was "gutter happy,," I
didn't have the, heart to look, but
turned my, back on the alley. Th.n
to my amazement I heard a bapig,
crask, smash, and opened my eyes
to find I had made a strike.
A burst of applause arose from
the spectator's'bench behind me and
1I realized that my charming com-
panions actually thought I had done
it on purpose-that it was the re-
sult of skill and experience. .My
chest expanded an inch or so, but
at the same time I was grateful
that this second accident enabled
me to sit down again without hav-

Special Primary Set for October 14
Will Not Force Early Closing,
Says Attorney General
Attorney General Richard, Ervin
has ruled that the, special supreme
court election to be held October
14 will not cause an early closing
of county registration books for
the November 4 general election.
(Secretary of State Bob Gray had
asked for Ervin's opinion, because
state law requires registration of
new voters to stop 30 days prior
to any election.
Mrs. C. G. Rish, supervisor of
registration for Gulf county, had
been wondering if this meant she
would have to stop registering all
voters on September 13. which was
30 days before the supreme court
election. This would have had the
effect of preventing anyone from
registering for thle November elec-
tion after last Saturday.
Ervin said that, "We do not con-
sider it to have been the legislative
intent that a party special primary
election occurring within the 30-
day period prior to the general
election should be permitted to
cause a closing of all registration
books for registrations for the gen-
He told the secretary of state
that Democrats registered before
September 13 may vote in the spe-
cial primary to nominate a succes-
sor to Justice Roy H. Chapman,
who died last month. Registrations
for the November election may be
accepted up to October 4, but those
who qualify after September 13 will
not be eligible to vote in the su-
preme court election.
Mrs. Rish states that she will
abide by the opinion of Ervin and
will keep her books open until Oc-

To Be Simplified
Voters Will Cast Ballots Directly
For President; Eleven.Con-
When voters go to the polls for
the November 4 general election
they will be presented with a hal-
lot that will be much easier to vote
than those of the past, so everyone
should be agreeably surprised.
For instance, you will not be re-
quired to wade through a long list
of presidential electors, but instead
will vote directly for your choice
for president of the United States.
At the top of the ballot will be
the names of Adlai E. Stevenson,
Democrat, and Dwight D. Eisen-
hower, Republican. You vote for
whom you think is the man best
fitted for the job-Adlai or Ike-
and if you don't like either of 'em
you can write in the name of your
choice in the blank space provided
for the purpose.
Aspirants for vice-president will
follow, and then candidates for U.
S. senator, governor and other state
officers. 'These will be followed by
the county ticket, and then the 11
constitutional amendments to be
passed on by the electors.
The listing of these constitutional
amendments will take more ballot
space than all the names of. the
candidates. Thus the ballot will be
pretty lengthy and probably a little
cumbersome to handle.
In case you're interested in the
subject matter of these constitu-
tional amendments, they were pub-
lished in full in the September 5
issue of The Star and are being
reprinted again this week.
Amendents five and six are of
particular import to Gulf county, as
No. 5 creates a new senatorial dis-
trict to be ,made up of Washington
and Bay counties, leaving Calhoun
asid Gulf counties in the present
district, and No. 6 creates a sena-
torial district of Monroe county.
City Has Wild Fowl
Great numbers of myriad sea
gulls, sea lions and rabbits live and
are protected by the federal govern-
ment in San Francisco. These rook-
eries are the seven Farallon islands,
30 miles west of San Francisco's
business district, and are included
as a part of that city.

an unbroken chain of depend-

Here's how it works-
With the plants'tied together, the dispatch-
er in the "nerve center" of our power sys-
tem can shift power from one location to
another as easily as you flick your light
switch. This means dependable service, for
if one plant shuts down, the dispatcher can
immediately bring power from another source
.. no waiting ... no delay for you. In fact,
in most cases you'd probably never know
there was any trouble.

new Suwannee River plant, two more units

Each year it is customary for the
freshmen to set aside one day as
"Freshman Barefoot Friday," and
