State Launches Forest
Fire Prevention Plan
Less Than 2 Percent of Protected
Land Was Burned; More 50
Percent of Unprotected .
Florida's annual forest fire pre-
vention campaign was launched
this year on November 24, State
Forester C: H. Coulter-announced
Monday. Each year when wild fires
destroy our woodlands which fur-
nish the raw material for one of
Florida's three largest income
producing industries, the cost to
the people of Florida runs into the
fi;llions of dollars.
To prevent this crippling situa.
tion, he added, all citizens must
shoulder the responsibility of pre-
venting woods fires. He pointed
out that nine out of ten wild fires
are started carelessly or delibe:-
ately by man. And if man can stare
these fires, man can prevent them,
Due to dry conditions of the
woods and the carelessness of peo-
ple, several of our neighboring
states just experienced their worst
fires in recent years. Although
some parts of Florida are as dry
as our neighboring states, we hav.:

By Public Utilities Commission
Several Companies Involved
Formal investigation into the
rates and charges for electric pow-
er furnished to Florida consumers
by four major power companies
operating over the state was be-
ing stepped up today by the Flor-
ida Public Utilities Commission.
The power companies involved are
Florida Power Corporation, Flor-

Gulf Power Company and Tampa
The Commission announced Mon-
day morning it had issued direc-
tives to these companies requiring
that certain operating and statis-
tical data "be prepared and certi-
fied by duly authorized certified
public accountants," and presented
to the Commission not later than
January 1, 1953.
The four companies under in-
vestigation furnish electricity in
nearly .all counties of the state.

At High School'
Sees Big Parade
High School Band; Many Colorfu-
Floats Are Highlights In
Big Homecoming Event
Friday afternoon of last week
saw the delight of everyone both
young and old on the streets of
Port St. Joe. A parade. The par-
ade was the starting of the big
Homecoming ceremonies of the
Port St. Joe High School which
were carried on through the re-
mainder of the day and were cul-
minated at the -big Homecoming
football.game at Centennial Field
last Friday night.
The parade started at the Port
St. Joe Grammar School and pro-
ceeded up Long Avenue and thence
to Reid Avenue which carried it
on through the main part of the
town. Accompanying the parade
was an impressive array of floats
and banners depicting different
scenes and occasions.
Both the parade and the floats
were entirely the work of the high
school students with different or-
ganizations and clubs at the school
sponsoring and building the floats.
The parade was led throughout
its trek by a motor scooter escort
and the high school band. Follow-
ing in convertible were the Home-
coming/ Queen, Ruth Coe and the
football cAtitain, ',Bb" Bray. Fol-
Slowing them were the floats.- :
A contest was held to judge the
- rioUs' floats and the prices were
received as follows: First place
went to the Intramural Board with
their "Shark Bait". Second place
went to the girls': .sportsman club
with a 'boat scene. Third place was
taken by the student council depict-
ing a beach scene. The judges were
J. R. Smith, J. T. Simpson, and
W. S. Smith. The first three place
winners were also displayed at
the Homecoming football game
last Friday night.

Our Country Right or Wrong
ARE YOU WITH US?
We have noticed in the past that the citi-
zens of Port St. Joe recognize only three seasons
in the year instead of the customary four. These
are football season, basketball season and base-
ball season. In years past our town has had
sporting teams to be proud. In our estimation
they were second to none. The town has sup-
ported them to the utmost degree.
So it is quite obvious that the citizens of
our town like good sporting events and will
patronize and help in the .performance of such
events. We believe that no other town in this
part of the state has such a record of support.
In the instance of our basketball teams of the
past. No outstanding record has been made
but the teams have' won a good average of the
games played; their playing spirit was good be-
cause the entire town was behind them and
knew it. So what happened, the team had
eidecent place to play in so a brand spanking
g:in glmiiLi.ii was built. Now, we weren't
d ,n liv'inc in Florida at the time but we do not
suspect that the basketball team was the pri-
mary reason for building the Centennial Au-
ditorium but the thought was obviously there,
since the main part of the Auditorium is com-
posed by a basketball court.
Then came the forming of the Saints. When
we lived here before, they were the hottest
thing in this part of the state. But, they had no,
place to play except a former ball field that
had been let go to pot and was next to impossi-
ble to reclaim. Nevertheless, the team went on
inning pennant after pennant year after year
despite their worn out playing field. Why? Be-
cause the stands were filled to capacity for ev-
ery game. So what did the people do but build
one of the best ball parks in -the state for the
Saints to perform their tricks on.
Now comes the bitter bit!. For some years
the Port St. Joe High School has fielded a fair
football team on a fair field. But for the past few
years there has been a gradual improvement in
the team as the young boys in the lower grade's
who started their training a few years ago come
into their own in the higher grades and take
over the pigskin for the alma mater. We think
By Col. W. S. Smith, Retired
Mayor of Buckhorn
Ha-! We've really got it on Earl
Sellers, Washington county news-
paper tycoon. We've "retired" and
he's still plugging along and en-
deavoring to create the illusion
that he really works Don't
imagine many people believe him,
especially when he puts in type
the many fishing trips he allegedly
goes on. Anyone with a lick of
sense could figure out that six
fishing expeditions a week leaves
but one day to get out his paper,
which is.one of the outstanding
publications in this section of
Florida No, we're quite sure
that Earl does very little labor,
but we'll give him credit for em-
ploying exceptionally good work-
men who know their stuff.
Anyway, Earl has this to say in
regard to our "retirement":
"It was with a deep feeling of
regret that we read last week in
the Port St. Joe Star that the edi-
tor and founder of tlie Star, our
friend of long standing, Bill Smith
has sold out and intended retiring
to his 'Stardust Lodge' down on
that the team will continue to improve because
of the program of starting them to practice as
soon as they're big enough to hold the ball. This
promises many more strong teams. This year's
team has chalked up the best record of any
eleven-man football team in the history of
Port St. Joe. This year it was brought forcibly
to the public that the team was in dire need of
a new field on which to play. So what is being
done? An organization called the "Shark Boost-
ers" has been formed to purform this task. And
you can bet they'll do it too.
We feel confident that a state championship
team will be fielded on a brand spanking new,
well-sodded, level, sandspur-free football field.
After all, that's the only thing to suspect of a
team that has done as fine a job as the one per-
formed-in this season just finished. So, "don't let
your football feelings pass with the football
season. Lend a hand to these good citizens who
are striving to make this improvement in our
town a reality. Let's keep our community
improvement achievements in the 1.000 batting
column. Don't let your town and your school
down. After all, it'll your be your children and
my children that will be playing there.
Are you with us?
If you are, we'll succeed. If not, then we'll
JUST A LITTLE CO-OPERATION
Congratulations are in order for our local
Retail Merchants Association. Something almost
unheard of in a small city will be accomplished
by our local merchants in next week's edition of
The Star. The merchants are CO-OPERATING
with each other in putting over a gigantic kick-
off sale for the Christmas season. All the stores
will have their, Christmas merchandise on the
shelves beginning next weekend and- will
have numerous special items for you to choose
from for your Christmas shopping. Your mer-
chants are aslo your next door neighbors too,
don't forget. They are just part of our city just
as you and I. Since they are just as interested-in
our city as you and I are and since they are our
friends and neighbors we think it only fitting
that everyone do his Christmas shopping right
here at home.
Whether you realize it or not, you are ac-
tually helping yourself by shopping at home.
Think of the time you save. Think of the ex-
pense you save by not running your car to some
other nearby town to do your shopping. Think
:bf the convenience of your e-irmn what you'buy
before you pay for it, of being able to pick out
just the style you want. There are numerous
advantages. And then too, the more you shop
at home, the less your goods will cost. Why?
Because the bigger the volume of business that
a merchant does, the less he has to make off a
single item and consequently the price of the
item is lowered and you reap the saving. It's all
Now, the merchants are bending over back-
ward to bring you this early harvest of bargains
for your Christmas shopping. They are co-oper-
ating with each other to help you to save money
and to see that you get what you want. We
think it's about time that we tried a little of
this co-operating gimmick and shop with our
local merchants. We think you'll be.better sat-
isfied in the long run.

Editor The Star:
The news releases and occas-
ional editorial notes which you
have carried regarding woods fires
and the work of the Florida Forest
Service have been of value to us.
At the same time we feel that they
have been responsible, to a great
degree, for holding down fire oc-
currence in your area.,
On behalf of the Florida Forest
Service I would like to express
appreciation for your spirit of pub-
lic service, both during this emer-
gency and throughout the year.
Your future co-operation in fire
prevention work will be welcomed.
Please call on us if 'we can make
the job easier for you.
