We're Tired of Hearing "Politics"
What is a newspaper? According to Mr.
Webster and his best seller, "Webster's Unabrid-
ged Dictionary", a newspaper is and we quote,
"A sheet of paper printed and distributed, at
regular intervals for conveying intelligence of
passing events, or disseminating the poinions of
a person, party, or sect; a public print or period-
ical issued daily, semiweekly, or weekly, record-
ing general news and intelligence of interest, or
special news regarding a particular subject, as
law, engineering, stenography, etc." You will
notice that the definition of a newspaper is a
periodical that reports all of the happenings of
interest to the locality it serves. Here we are
disagreeing on the policy followed by some
members of the journalistic field.
Here of late, the newspapers of the land,
both daily and weekly have harped too much
on "politics". It has come to the point where
some newspapers don't consider anything news-
worthy except the doings of some politician or
some political group. Mrs. Jones and her tea
Party don't stand a chance for an occasional
.mention. True, the politics are the shaping of
our'everyday living ia Lthis land of ours. But
there is other ndws that mean just as much to
the reader. We are not knocking the reporting
of politics, but we'are knocking the devotion of
whole newspapers to politics. Politics to the
average man is "greek" when reported in "politi-
cal language". We readily admit that we do
not understand a lot of the political jargon, nor
do we try. A man is elected to an office be-
cause the people believe in him. Then they

We hope you all saw "It Hap-
pens Every Thursday" Thursday
and Friday at the Port Theatre.
We will say this, the experiences
of that small town editor were ty-
pical. He had a strict advantage
over most country editors how-
ever. As a rule the country edi-
tor does the movie hero's job and
also the job of .at least one of the
hired printers the movie portrayed.
A great portion of the weeklies
have the editor doing the editor's
work and also the printers work
with the help of possibly a "print-
er's devil". The movie was true to
forn in that the whole family' of
the country editor has to pitch in
to make ends meet until the joint
is paid for. We don't suppose there
is over a few hundred weeklies
of the small variety in the coun-
try that doesn't need a new press.
We know we need one at The
Star. The old press we have does
the job, but since coming to Port
St. Joe our subscription list has
jumped to such proportions that
make it a job to get out the paper
on the slow press we have. Also we
could use a folding machine to very
good advantage. We hope you no-
ticed by the picture that the pub-
lishing game is a long way from
being "pure gravy". It costs like
all get-out to secure printing ma-
chinery. And paper, oh, boy! We
remember when we first started
working at The Star in 1943 that
bond paper was
spend the remaining years of his. term reading
about his actions in every column of the news-
papers. We cannot see devoting headlines, edi-
torials, inside pages and literally everything but
the funnies to political happenings. We be-
lieve that a newspaper, and particularly a week-
ly newspaper, should report primarily the hap-
penings of his own community and the actions
of his neighbors. A newspaper should be a thing
of enjoyment and relaxation and informative of
newsworthy events throughout the world. A
member of the family, is what a newspaper
A newspaper can sway public opinion.
There are those today who take advantage of
this fact. Many editors would sell the policy of
their editorial column. Over a period of years,
newspapers have come to be respected as .the
last word of authority of news. News that cir-
culates by word of mouth is often distorted.
There are those who have sold their opinions to
reap the benefits from certain situations that
are being promoted. This has created a blight
on the good name of the newspaper profession.
We believe this, that newspapers should re-
turn to printing the news of the people and re-
sort to political stories only in their true value
toward the people who will be concerned by
We realize too, that at times a newspaper
must take a stand for what is right for this
country and all its many little counties and
towns and all its large counties and towns. This
is the primary reason for a newspaper. To knit
a nation together with a means of communica-
tion with one another.
Just what is a newspaper? To condense Mr.
Webster's definition a little, a newspaper is a
media of nevts. The news is the happenings of
people. The people are you and I. In our
opinion, if "news" is of no concern to those
involved in the above lines, then it isn't news.
This would make a newspaper the opinion of
the people, not just one person or some small
group of persons.
This newspaper has spoken out on two dif-
ferent controversial subjects. A raise in pay for
school teachers and against the sale of liquors
in Gulf County on Sundays. Some called us a
"crusader". We say we were expressing the
opinion of the masses of our county to let the
world know how we stood on these two matters.

"right" is another best seller, the Holy Bible.
about what the
price of newsprint is today. And
don't mention the price of bond
paper now. Most people would con-

He has to love it though. For
instance, we start work Monday

because previous years have seen
overflowing crowds turn out for
ball games at every chance they
had. We think that if you want
baseball to continue you should
get in contact with the Gulf Coast
League officials and urge them to
continue play and then go out at
every opportunity to support your
team. It costs money to run any-
from 8 o'clock every morning to thing; even a baseball team with
12 and 1 o'clock every night till the volunteer players. The local team
paper is out. Week in and week
out. But it's fun!
We see where a fountain pen
manufacturer is offering his em-
ployees a year's vacation with pay
at the end of ten years service. On
top of that, they get the regular
'two weeks vacation each of those
ten years he's working, too. The
owner of the company says he
wants to cut down in the turn-over
of labor. That's about as good a
way to do it as any.
We have heard rumors that the:
Gulf Coast League is going keput.
We hope to have more information
on this later on in the week and
you will probably see it on the front
page of this week's issue of the
Star. It certainly is a shame, 'that
such a thing as this can draw no
more spectators and support than
and the whole league is going to
fold from lack of finances if you
don't support it with your pres-
ence. Let's do something about
this. We have a fine team and one
of the best ball parks in this part
of Florida. We'd sure hate to see
them both go up in dust.
-Speaking of ball, you should go
out to the High School building
and see the new football field that
is rapidly taking place. Grass has
been planted on the new field and
it growing "like grass". The foot-
ball team of next season will have
a field to be proud of.

ticipation on the last day of Short
SCourse. The morning assembly was
panel' discussion in the form of
S question and answer review "4-H
Hps the Aunswers" Miss Bronna
Mae Elkins, assistant state girls
4-H club agent, acted as monitor.
Four 4-H club girls asked the ques-
tions to the panel of experts, Dr.
Margaret Sandals, Dean of the
School of Home Economics, Miss
Anna Mae Sikes, State Home Dem-
onstration Agent, Miss Louise Tay-
lor, Home Demonstration Agent
from Brevard County, and a local
leader from Marion County.
Following the morning assembly,
Nancy Maddox and I went to the
last meeting of the State Junior
Council for this year. Here, we had
committee reports and election of
officers. I served as chairman of
the County Council Reports Com-
mittee, and gave my report at that
time. After the election of officers,
the executive committee met to se-
lect a parliamentarian and histor-
ian. I was chosen to be parliamen-
"- tarian for the year 1953-54.
The afternoon program was rec-
ognition for county and state
awards. Iris Davis received the di-
plomas for Gulf County. For most
of the girls Friday afternoon was
a chance to visit and rest, follow-
ing the afternoon program.
The last program was held in
the Opperman Music Hall for the
purpose of installing newly elected
council officers and the candlelight
ceremony. Mr. Matthis led the
group singing. In his "Sing for
Fun" classes, each group had com-
posed a song 'about 4-H work. It
was at this time that the groups
sang their songs for the assembly.
A beautiful arid inspiring installa-
tion of officers followed these pre-
liminaries. The last event of the
evening was a candlelight service,
which is the re-dedication of 4-H
ideals. Carole Mercer represented
our county in the clover. The group
formed a 4-leaf clover with the
agents at its stem. The University
choir added to the inspiration of the
