Postmaster C L Costin Urges Early
Mailing and Use of Provided Eacilities
"Mail Early and Often for Christ- deposited by December 16. He said
mas" is the plea of postmaster
Chauncey Costin and the employees
of the Port St. Joe post office.
Costin recalled last year that
patrons of the post office were
most cooperative and as a result
all mail deposited prior to Christ-
mas day was dispatched or deliver-
ed locally; however, it is anticipat-
ed that mailings this season will
greatly surpass any that we have
had in the past, and with the cur-
tailed budget of the Post Office De-
partment full cooperation from
patrons will enable the local post
office to render the service desired
without excess use of man-hours.
Costin suggested that mailings
for distant states be deposited at
the post office by December 10,
and that mail for local delivery be
that work in the post office could
be greatly expedited and better ser-
vice rendered if patrons would sep-
arate mailings by "Local" and
"Out of Town" and use the lable
which is available upon request at
the post office.
Costin also suggested that greet-
ing cards be given the "personal
appeal" by being sent first class,
as the 3c postage will take priority
in dispatch and delivery and can
also be forwarded or returned with-
.out the collection of additional post-
age. Late mailings should be sent
by air with special delivery service
if arrival is on Christmas day. A

Visits Here Today
The Rotary Club of IPort St. Joe
today will be host to Henry W.
Dew, Governor of the 694th Dis-
trict of Rotary International, who
is making his annual official visit
to each of the 35 Rotary Clubs in
his district. He will address the
local club and confer with the pres-
ident, secretary and committee
chairmen on Rotary administra-
tive and service activities.
,Mr. Dew is a member and past
president of the Rotary Club of
Jacksonville. He was elected as a
district governor of Rotary Inter-
national for -the 1957-58 fiscal year
at Rotary's 49th Annual Conven-
tion in Lucerne, Switzerland, last
May. He is one of 249 district gov-
ernors supervising the activities
of more than 9,500 Rotary Clubs
which have a membership of 446,-
000 business and professional ex-
ecutives in 102 countries through-
out the free world.
Wherever Rotary Clubs are lo-
cated, 'President Jimmy Greer of
the Port St. Joe Rotary Club, as-
serted in discussing the governor's
visit, their activities are similar to
those of the Rotary Club of Port
St. Joe because they are based on
the same general objectives-devel-
oping better understanding and fel-
lowship among business and pro-
fessional men, promoting commun-
ity-betterment undertakings, raising
tle standards of business and pro-
fessions, and fostering the advance-
ment of good will, understandi-ig
and peace among all the people
of the world.
Each year, this world-wide ser
vice organization continues to grow
in numbers and in strength. Presi-
dent Dew added. During the pas'
fiscal year, 341 new Rotary Clubs
were organized in 41 countries of
North, South and Central America.

Sharks Will Begin
Cage Season On
Tuesday, Dec. 10
The 1957 Sharks received an ad-
ditional honor last week-one which
was given this year for the first
tme. The honor bespeaks the kind
of boys who make up the cham-
pionship team of the Northwest
The award was the first annual
Sportsmanship trophy presented
this year for the first time by the
Gulf Coast Officials' Association
which officiated over the games the
Sharks played this year.
The trophy was presented at the
Officials' annual banquet held at
Carson's Restaurant in Panama
City Monday night.
The award was established by
the officials to promote better
sportsmanship in the schools that
the Gulf Coast Official's work games
for. The trophy was received for
the Sharks by Coaches Marion
Craig and Lamar Faison on behalf
of the NWFC champions and was
presented by Crawford Mosley,
,president of the Association.
Coach Craig said, "The officials
were complimentary in their state,
ments concerning the way our
players conducted themselves on
the field and the treatment that
they received in general from the
fans and our principal, Leroy Bow-
doin. A winning team usually re-
cieves its share of honors, but we
are proudest of this one."
Sharks Will Wind
Up Grid Season Friday
The St. Joe Sharks will journey
once more to Shalimar tomorrow
night to try and play their last
game of the season against the
Choctawhatchee Indians. The game
was originally scheduled for two
weeks ago and was rained out.
Game time will be at 8:30 p.m.
Port St. Joe time.
Coach Marion Craig told The
Star that "The Choctaws have in-
timated that their team is super-
ior to the Sharks. Our boys realize
that the prestige of the NWFC
Conference is at stake along with
their personal pride. It should be
some football game to watch."
This game will wind up the foot-
ball season for the Sharks.

time element will make it difficult
for this team to reach an efficient
level in our early games. However,
we expect to have a good basket-
ball team in a few weeks. We have
the hardest working athletes in
high school circles. The coaching
staff is confident that they will
work to overcome the advantage
mapy teams have gained by early
games and practice sessions.

Science Marches On-
Do you want to learn all about rockets, satellites and tra-
veling to the moon? Then just pick up any one of the more popu-
ar magazines lately and you will learn all about it.
Until Russia's Sputniks took to the air, we had no idea
just how a great a scale the U. S. was working on this project --
tuntil it was made public in practically every piece of reading ma-
terial available. From ;these sources of information, we take it
that the U. S. is striving for more far-reaching goals than the
placing of a satellite in the sky.
-' We hold far greater significance to the fa-ct that the U. S.
.has shot a rocket into the air: 5,000 miles than the Russians putt-
jing one up for 500 miles. After all, for years we have been read-
ming that the fact of meeting the problems of space travel are
nothing compared to the problems of finding a suitable fpel and
a metal or other product that will withstand the tremendous heat
of rocket fuels. Apparently with the sending of a rocket upwards
of 5,000 miles high has made great strides toward solving these
problems and what was the product that solved the first step
in the conquest of space?. The old household box of borax that
housewives have used for years. Probably just some such com-
mon source of material will solve the other problems too.
And then we read a squib in a magazine the other day
where a scientist had solved the problem of transmitting atomic
heat cheaply to generate electricity directly without wires and the
heavy atomic boilers now used for producing atomic electricity.
.In other words the heat is applied directly to produce electricity.
A picture in the short article had the scientist holding a small elec-
tric bulb treated with atomic power in some way and the heat of
his hand was creating the electricity needed to light the bulb.
This will mean that atomic powered missiles or space ships can
use the reflected heat of the sun to get power. Science marches
o n, and still we can't find a can opener that is fool proof.

Florida Joins Fight
For Tidelands Oil
NEW ORLE'_ANS Five Gulf
states agreed last week to offer a
common defense against the fed-
eral government in the tidelands
The federal government contends
state boundaries extend no farther
than three miles into the Gulf. The
states contend their boundaries go
to 10% miles into the Gulf.
The Interior Department's orig-
inal suit in the case was filed
against Louisiana. But it recently
was changed to incldue Florida,
Mississippi, Texas and Alabama.
Louisiana Atty. Gen. Jack Gre-
million, spokesman for the five
states, said the legal representa-
tives discussed details of the ap-
peal before the Supreme Court.
"It has been agreed by Louisiana
and the other states to file answers
with the 'Supreme Court before
Jan. 2, 1958, 'the deadline 'set by
the court," Gremillion said.
"Each state will file a separate
answer. (But in these answers we
will offer a common defense
against the attempt of the federal
government to take from the states
tidelands oil production.
"It has also been agreed that the
states tidelands oil production.
"It has also been agreed that the
states continue to exchange notes,
to compare notes and to swap in-
formation in the common defense."
Gremillion said all states in-
volved agreed they should control
offshore operations up to three ma-
rine leagues, a distance of 10%
miles off shore.
