So now the story comes out
that the County Commissioners
were "hoodwinked" into signing
the Resolution they did. Accord-
ing to a letter carried in this is-
sue of The Star from Commis-
sioner Parker Hart, the Commis-
sioners signed what they be-
lieved was a "sample" Resolu-
tion to stop action on the over-
pass until remuneration was
made to real estate holders near'
tlie proposed overpass. The so-
called "sample" was drawn up,
according to the letter to be
presented at the November
meeting of the Commissioners.
The Resolution was never brot
before body, instead the sample
copy that they had signed was
turned over to the State Road

No doubt the Commissioners
who signed the document were
as angry at the makers of the
document as were the people
angry at the Commissioners for
signing it in that manner. We
contended in our editorial last
week that such an action was
wrong, and we still contend it.
We personally believe that
the Commissioners should waste
no time now in calling a special
meeting to draw a resolution to
the State Department to clari-
fy the situation. We have no
doubt but what such a resolu-
tion would make the SRD res-

The County pays for the ser-

Leroy Bowdoin, program chairman,
will present a Christmas program

And there's a special pleasure in
adding a pair of Christmas seals
to the flap of the envelope to sym-

the whole community.
Americans are the most gener-

year they contribute billions to
charity, and especially during the
holiday season their hands are out-
stretched 4o give. so that as many
as possible may share in celebrat-
ing this happy time. But the Christ-

more than charity toward the sick
and unfortunate. They represent a
gift for the welfare of the entire
community, a gift for ourselves.

Earl Atchison, president of the

The Star that his committees have

"OF PUMPKIN AND MINCE PIES"
It is Thanksgiving time! We allow our
minds to wander back, or we look ahead. When
we turn back, we think of other Thanksgivings
in our boyhood time. We think of the country-
.jide of colorful leaves of faint autumn sun-
shine. We think of pumpkin and mince pies,
and roast turkey. We think of a lot df "doings"
of Thanksgiving Day, years ago.
Does Thanksgiving Day mean what it once
did? Does it mean to give thanks for the har-
vest and our many blessings? In fact, have we
evolved from the original meaning of many of
our holidays? Christmas has become so highly
commercialized that we believe only a few. com-
memorate the birth of the Christ Child.
Could it be like Election Day? Election
Day is a holiday. Only a few of those who re-
main at home for the purpose of voting ever
vote. Less than 40% of the eligible voters in
this country vote, while in other countries, hav-
ing received their freedom back again after los-
ing it, the vote runs above 90%.
So, this Thanksgiving, instead of only stuff-
ing ourselves with a lot of rich food, let's- think
of tomorrow, and the time ahead be thankful
for our many blessings thank our friends about
us for their friendship, and for their many
kind deeds. Also, turn our thanks to praise, and
praise those who are doing good. Many a man
has been a success because he was praised for
the work he was doing, instead of being criti-
cized for the little things.
With our associates, we can get them to do
what they should do by praising them for that
particular job. They will do it even better next
Hare wrote: "The praises of others may be
of use in teaching us, not what we are, but what
we ought to be."
There is nothing like praise for making us
humans feel warm and in a good humor. Praise
not only pretends we are better, it helps to make
us better than we are.
I like the following poem by Lalia Mitchell
"Thanksgiving rapped upon my door,
I gave him nuts, and cakes and tarts,
But quite forgot he prizes more
The gifts of grateful human hearts.
Thanksgiving scorned the heapened plate,
And all my choice and costly food;
I wept, for I had learned too late,
I should have served him gratitude."
This will be a great Thanksgiving. If we
give thanks and praises to our associates and
friends, for the good job they are trying to do,
it will make them better men and women. There
is a selfish angle too, -he good, warm glow we
feel, and this was spoken of by Disraeli when
he said: "We are never so pleased as when we
This Thanksgiving let's give thanks thanks
to God for our many blessings, and thanks to
our friends and associates for their good work.

Hi Y Chapter To Be Formed
In High School
Mr. T. Aubrey Morse, the state
director of the WMCA will visit
Port St. Joe High School on Mon-
day to organize a Hi Y chapter
here. The Hi Y is a Christian Ser-
vice organization for boys spon-
sored by the YMCA.
Mr. Harry McKnight appeared
before the student body last week
to discuss the possibility of form-
ing such a chapter and the res-
ponse was very favorable. Mr.
Booth Poole will serve as sponsor
for this group.
The Tri Hi Y which is a simu-
lar organization for girls, was or-
ganized here by Mr. Morse last
year. The chapter under the lea;er-
ship o' president, Faye Fleishel and
sponsor, Mrs. Ernestine Sims has
gained much recognition for its
outstanding projects. The group
has assisted the newly formed
high school PTA, helped prepare
circulars for the tuberculosis drive
and decorated the banquet for the
Student Council convention. They
are currently sponsoring a "Go To
Church" campaign, and are res-
ponsible for the Thanksgiving as-
sembly program at which time Rev.
Tom Miler will deliver a medita-
tion to the group.
Delegates have also been chosen
to represent the local chapter at
the Hi Y-Tri Hi Y convention to
be held December :3,, 4, and 5 in
Sarasota. The chosen delegates are
