Port St. Joe is a mighty pretty 'lil town
with practically everything any town this size
and some towns that are larger than ours has.
We have a nice city hall, a nice Centennial Au-
ditorium, a modern up-to-date lighted ball dia-
mond, a tennis court under construction, a bath-
ing and fishing pier out into the bay, plenty of
paved streets, street markers and lights, a mo-
dern fire department, beautiful buildings and
a multitude of wide, clean streets. There is an

B;nd of figured that income tax re-

It just didn't seem possible to cut

,We see where Senator Spessard
Holland is going to miss the Flor-
ida State Fair due to the fact that
he is leading a fight in,the senate.
A true Southerner. He's doing the
LiEADING. But he ain't going to
be the only one to miss the fair.
We're going to miss it and we're
not even a Senator and even had
two complimentary passes (of

If you want to see something
real pretty, just come by the Star
office in about two or three years.
We planted three weeping willow
trees in our front yard this week
between our building and where
the sidewalk is supposed to be
and hope to have some beautiful
trees in a few years.
Did you notice in our lead story
on the-front page of last week's
Star that the state board looking
into the possibility of raising the
teacher's salary that they didn't
think it was necessary to obtain
many teachers with master's de-
grees to teach in Florida's schools.
What we want to know, is why
not? Is it just because the state
may have to pay them more? Here
Florida has more money left over
at the end of the year than any
state around us and pays their
leac hers less -than; all,-.the ohier
states around us.
Just in case you.have a mistaken
idea that Mr. B. W. Eells has been
in a fight of some kind, you can
stop wondering along these lines.
Seems as if Mr. Eells had a wori-
some mole on the side of his nose
and had it plucked from its resting
place. The bandage only hides Dr.
As this is being written on Mon-
day, we can't help but wonder what
action the County Commissioners
are going to take at their meeting
Tuesday. (Of course it will be tak-
en and on our front page by the
time you read this).
The Junior Class of the High
School is going to be selling sub-
scriptions to the Star for a few
weeks now and are working on a
commission basis. So if they come
to see you and you are not a sub-
scriber of the Star, let them "write
you up" for a year. Just three skins
brings you 52 editions of Port St.
Joe's best newspaper. (of course
it's the worst, too, but we don't
think about that).

industry here to provide money for the town,
tourist facilities and many other things that our
town can certainly be proud of.
But we have one of the most vital parts of
any town missing. What is it? A cemetery. Why
nearly every hamlet in the United States has
one, but not our Port St. Joe. Why is this?
We understand that several committees and
organizations have been formed for the express
purpose of obtaining a cemetery for our town but
to no avail. What's wrong? Surely there are
many residents that live here now that want to
be buried here when they pass on. One of the
first things that the old city of St. Joseph did
was to establish a cemetery. Here we've been
steadily growing for the past fifteen years and
still are no farther along in this respect than
when we started.
Something should be done about this. If
hno group can bring, this need about then the
City council should be approached to take steps
to provide the community with thisinstallation.
Maybe it's time the word "lazy" became
respectable. Did you ever hear of a lazy man
going to a psychiatrist?

most of all is a broader consciousness of the in-
finite brotherhood of human souls."

Student-Faculty Basketball Game
Coming tq Port St. Joe is the
greatest, most hilarious, and
breathtaking of all events. The
Junior class is sponsoring a bas,
ketball game between the faculty
and the high school's "slow" team.
(of course they wouldn't need a
slow team to keep up with Mr.
Ayers). The teachers will wear
uniforms like they used to wear in
the early 1900's. (fancy bloomer
type britches with black stockings
up to their knees). This great event
will be Thursday. February 5 at
the Centennial Auditorium. Don't
miss this great event, as there
never has and never shall be one
like it. Don't miss this grand op-
portunity, Thursday night.
The Junior class has become
salesmenn" of the week. They are
selling anything from Shark, boos-
ter tags to wrapping paper. Among
the long list of articles being sold
are Easter cards, assortment cards
for all occasions, stationery,, both
initialed and plain, wrapping ribbon
and mailing boxes. If you have any-
thing that you wish to- buy please
contact Virginia Swatts or any
member:of the Junior class, for the

Straight From A "Harper"
Huntin' is over for several
months now, so grease up the old
gun and put it safely away in a
wool-lined bag, so that it will be
ready to give you service next No-
Fishing proved to be disappoint-
ing to many people who tried their
luck on the Lake area--this week
end. Poor catches were reported
by nearly all parties. When there
is a storm disturbance in the air,
fish seem to sense such a fact.
Anyway they can't be caught at
such a time.
When Furnace Is "Furniture"
Because the household rumpus
room frequently houses the furnace,
the demand has developed for fur-
naces with exterior jackets that are
as colorful and attractive as furni-
ture. For the purpose, industrial
finish engineers have developed sp .
oial finishes in striking colors which
resist heat, scratching. and marring
and are easy to keep clean.
