HAIL AND FAREWELL!
As editor and publisher of The Star for going on sixteen
years, I have written and placed in type thousands of items
ofn my townsfolk going on vacations from Timbuctoo to Kala-
mazoo and of the wondrous
sights they had seen and
the pleasure they received
from their trips. In those
same almost sixteen years
the longest vacation I have
had was six days in one "
chunk of course, I
and here lately have been .-
spending the week-ends at
Stardust Lodge. ... But
this is a big old world of
ours, and while I have seen
quite a bit of it in my 52
years, I'd like to see a lot
more of it, for I'll be here
a long time after the Grim
Reaper swings his scythe.
So it is indeed with pleasure that I announce the sale of
The Star to my one-timie helper, Wesley R. Ramsey, the one
individual whom I'd rather sell to than any I know, for I
feel that he will continue to operate The Star in the same
manner and tradition and continue to put out the best news-
paper published in 'Port St. Joe.
I want to, express my deepest 'thanks to the people of Port
St. Joe and vicinity for putting up with me for lo, these many
years, and I particularly want to thank those individuals who
aided in putting, out your paper by bringing or phoning. in
i news items, for without their help The Star would not have
been the paper it'vas. I trust that you gpod people will coh--
tinue to give your support to the new owner.
I also want to express my appreciation to the businessmen
of our fair city for their support, for without their advertis-
ing and printing The Star could not have existed.
While my wife and I feel some regret at leaving, we will
not be far away, since we will be taking up our residence at
Stardust Lodge, on the Dead Lakes, and will continue to be
frequent visitors to Port St. Joe. After all, we're getting to be
"old folks" (although I doubt that the wife will admit that
-:what woman does?) and it's about time we were turned
out to pasture. We extend all our friends an invitation to
visit us when they are in our neck o' the woods.
And that is that!

Craig Rounds Out

Playing Field Is In Sorry
Shape; Officials Of
Team Urge Action
by HARRY McKNIGHT
Coach Marion Craig has built
himself one of the smoothest foot-
ball machines, man for man, in the
history of Port St. Joe High School.
It takes experts to correctly
evaluate the merits of the individ-
ual players, statistically. Neither
time nor space will allow us to set
down everything I know and would
like to say about each man, but
many things must have been noted
by even the most casual observer'
who has followed the team as we
have, with the other fans and par-
Naturally, let us begin with the
quarterbacks. We have two, Wal-
ters, a natural leader, started a
very promising season this year.
Suffering a severely sprained ankle
in an early scrimmage, he was un-
able to continue as regular quar-
terback after the second game.
The full responsibility fell to Joe
Adams, one of the finest defensive
players on the field. After a shaky
start, during which Adams had to
gain the full confidence of his
mates, he has proven himself one
of the most versatile players on
record. He can pass well, handle
the ball. with precision ae plal a
good defensive game. Walters has
now recovered sufficiently to be of
tremendous help on line thrusts.
Other highly effective guards,
are Dennis and newcomers Gain-
ous and Jammes. There is de-
pendable Benny Hudson at center.
He is aggressive and another back-
field rusher. One of our fastest
men, Hudson hauled down two
ball carriers at Walton of De Fun-
iak who wel-'e headed for pay dirt

in the wide open spaces. These
tackles spelled the difference. Smathers To Be Here For
Ends Roberts and Chism have
developed into a team themselves
and are a thrill to watch. Roberts
consistent pass receiving and
tackling have made him outstand-
ing. Chism is superb in every de-
partment, a very good pass re-
ceiver, a vicious tackler, and a
blocker who loves to throw his
160 plus pounds around.
With a well-rounded backfield
we have McCall, a rugged, charg-
ing. swivel-hipped runner who can
pick up long yardage with com-
parative ease. Richards, a tena-
cious halfback shows great prom-
ise and is developing well. Coker,
one of the seasons surprises, has
played a brilliant game against
our most powerful opponents. He
is fleet of foot and another line
plunger. Williamson, another prom-
ising runner, played his most out-
standing game against highly
touted Graceville. Two other fine
players who will see much more
action next year are Duperrouzel
Captain Bo Bray, tipping the
scales at 240 lbs. has three full
years of experience behind him
and is, without question, one of
the most versatile tackles we have
ever had.. With an advantage of

ingly fast runner, even receiving

"MIRACLES" AND TB
Each year at this time we are asked by
the Gulf Tuberculosis Health Association to sup-
port the annual Christmas Seal Sale. Port St.
Joe has always supported the sale generously,
knowing that Christmas Seals are-helping to lick
Sometimes, however, the question is asked
whether there isn't some drug which could cure
every case of tuberculosis and put a quick end
to this age-old disease.
Unfortunately, there is no "ihiracle" drug
to solve the tuberculosis problem. Fortunately,
however; there are drugs which' are extremely
helpful in the treatment of tuberculosis.
To understand both these statements, it is
necessary to understand something of the na-
ture of tuberculosis, the communicable disease,.
which kills more people than all other infectious
Tuberculosis is a chronic, relapsing disease
which causes injury to lung tissue. It is com-
municable; that is, it is spread from the sick to
the well. If we had a "miracle" drug we should
undoubtedly expect it to cure any given case of
the disease promptly, completely, and perman-
ently; to make the lung whole again, and' to
render the patient non-infectious so that he
could not give his disease to anyone else.
The fact that such drug is not available does
not in any way detract from the drugs which
are being used in tuberculosis therapy. They are
not "cure-alls," nor are they a substitute for
other treatment. They are used in conjunction
with bed rest, to keep infection under control
while the body itself repairs damaged tissue,
or needed surgery can be performed.
Drugs have definitely taken their place
in the treatment of tuberculosis. But no case of
tuberculosis can be treated until it is found.
And one of the tragedies of tuberculosis is its
unobtrusive beginning. People may have the
disease, may even be spreading it to others,
without knowing they are ill. In fact it is esti-
mated there are probably 50 persons with
"unknown" tuberculosis in Gulf County today-
people -who either do not know they have the
disease or whose disease has not been reported
to health authorities. The majority of these are
not under treatment of any kind.
In order to treat these persons and stop the
spread of disease, it is necessary to find the un-
known cases. Our tuberculosis association, thru
education and through case-finding programs,
is aiding the search for the unknown tubercu-
losis. Such activities are essential to the ulti-
mate control of this insidious disease. We should
support, our Gulf County association in its
search for TB and we can do this by buying and
using Christmas Seals.
Sometimes -the greatest' miracles are to be
found in the simple, familiar things, like
Christmas. Seals. "

Main points for Socialized Medi-
cine were that everyone can't af-
ford medical care, and that the
government helps develop new
medicine and should see that every
one has an equal chance to use
it. The main points against it
were that it does noot deal in
control of disease, and also it
works on the basis of quantity and

increasing again, due to the co-op-
eration of sportsmen, better law
enforcement, game refuges where
no shooting is allowed, and the

Other varieties give a wide range
