Red Cross Drive

To Be Continued

Due To Fact That Some Are Not
Able T6d Pay Dues "At
Present Time

Rev. H. F. Beaty, in charge of
the Red, Cross roll call for Port-
'St. Joe, stated yesterday'that'the
'me er.ujrhip drive will continue
through next week, and longer if
necessary, as some who want to
subscribe are noot able to give
their dollar at the present time.
"The Red Cross is a great fac-
tor in giving us a generous and
world-wide view,'' said Mr. Beatv.
"We give hoping never to receive
anything in return, for it is. given
only in emergencies.
."Fifty cents of your dollar is
kept'in Gulf county and well used.
The remainder is senit tto national
headquarters to care for any na-
tional or international disaster.
Some people misunderstand, or are
misinformed as to the use of these
funds. No one in the county gets
anything' for their services or ex-
penses; we give that over and
above the $1.00. Also none of the-
national officers and workers are
paid, :from this fund, 'for there is
an endowment fund that pays all
the salaries and expenses of the
national organization.
"You and I may never need it,
yet we are exposed to' dangers
that may cause us to be in' greit.
need of emergency help.
"One use that we hope to make
of a part of oir funds is to estab-
lish emergency stations and, to
train'classes''to care for accidents
iand disasters when "they 'come,"'
"concluded Rev. Beaty. "How little
the average person knows of 'the
use of medicines, and "how to
handle an injured person. Many
'people are killed by being handled
Imnproperly and 'his training might"
save nany'lives in Port' St. Joe
and 'Gulf county.",

So far as' the dances are con-
cerned, one of which will be held
each' night of the four-day cele-
bration, it s the consensus of opin-
ion that they should be properly
sponsored so as to take them out
of the realm of public dances. By
this it is. not meant that they will
hb exclusivee" or "high-hat," or in
any way restricted, except to the
extent that undesirable behavior
on the part of participants shall
be absolutely eliminated. To this
end it 'has been decided that the
entire program of-dances shall be
in charge of a committee of men
and that each dance will be spon-
sored) by ladies, the duties of
whom 'it will be to see that visit-
ing ladies are made to fee'; at
home. that no wallflowers be per-
mitted to go unnoticed-, and that
the stag line shall be kept in or-
der. The names' of the general
committee of men, or of the four
committees of sponsoring ladies
have not yet been made public.
With regard to the dance on the
closing night-Saturday night, De-
cember 10, which will be the grand
finale of the celebration-many
ideas have been, advanced with a
view toward making it one of the
outstanding social events, not only
of West Florida, but of the entire.
state. Among suggestions offered
have been that it' be a military_
'ball, that it 'be a period" costume
ball, that' it be a masquerade ball,
with other variations.
At a meeting of the executive
committee of the Woman's club
held this week, and which was at-
tended by General Ohairman J.IL.
Sharit and -his assistant, George
H. Clements, the latter made the
suggestion that inasinuch as he
was deeply Interested in lthe so-
cia 'affairs 'of the celebration,
purely'*from the point of view of
a showman, and with no social
axes to grind, social enemies to
punish or social frIends to reward,
he would 'like to suggest that as
a diversion from tihe routine of
dancing for the last ball of the

Florida, who has been making al-
most continuous trips to all parts
of the state during the past six
weeks, is a strong booster for the
success of the Centennial Celebra-
tion to be held in Port St. Joe and
has been talking it up not only in
Florida, but.in Washington, D. C.
In a letter to the editor of The
Star, Senator Andrews has this to

The Star
Port St. Joe, Florida
Dear Mr. Smith-I believe that
the 100th anniversary of the sign-
ing of the state's first constitution
will be one of tne most 'glorious
celebrations ever held in our state
and I. am. doing:what I can to pub-
licize it in my' trips throughout
the state, in the hope that it will
be possible' for' l;erally thousands
of Florida people ,to, attend and
enjoy the inlapiratipn' that they
will naturally r:feie;e.
It so happens that my family
came to the state of JFlorida over
one hundred years ago-before
the first Constitutional Convgn-
tion-so this celebration, to me, is
one that I look forward to.. with
deep interest. I only wish it were
possible for. our ancestors who
met in the' first Constitutional
Convention..to come back to Flor-,
ida and .see the development
which has .occurred .there in Port
St. Jbe. .Its gr owt.;ifrom a -tiny
fishing village on t.e Gulf.through
adversity.and hardship, to one, of
the most:beautiful and thriving
communities, in our state should
be, I 'believe, an inspiration, not
only to many otner communities
4in Florida, but to each individual
Port St. Joe, in 'my opinion, is
on the threshhold ofl a glorious
future. Its splendid deep water
harbor will welcome the ships of
the world as time goes by, and I
believe that security, prosperity,
,eace and happiness will be found
there during the years to come.
I congratulate you, as publisher
of The Star, and the public-
spirited men and women who com-
prise the Centennial commission
and who' have devoted their time,
energy and ability in behalf of
this program, which I am certain
will be a most outstanding suc-
cess, and one which will be re-
membered'for many years to come
by all of us whio will be fortunate
enough to attend.
With kind personal regards and
good wishes, I am,
Sincerely yours,
Charles O. Andrews:

Little Community Postoffice Will
Be Busy Place Until After
The Yultide Season

CHRISTMAS, Fla., Nov, 25-
(FNS) It may be true in most
parts of the country that "Christ-
mas comes but once a year," with
cheer and merriment, despite all
the hard work that goes with the
Yuletide season.
But down here in this little
town which wearied soldiers many
years ago christened "Fort Christ-
mas" when they had completed
erection of their palmetto log
fort, Christmas-even aside from
the name of the community-is a
long drawn out affair, for hardly
does one holiday season end than
another one begins.
And it's the hardest on young
and pretty Juanita T.ucker who,
besides housewifely duties, is the
postmaster of this small commun-
ity, and as, such must supervise
the cancellation ot thousands' of
letters from people all over the
world who want their friends or
children to get a letter post-
marked right from the legendary
headluart.rs of everything that
goes with the Yuletide.
Last year more than 50,000 let-
ters were run through the cancel-
lation machines and sent td, nearly
every nation "on the globe'. This
year even more are exp.'cted to be
sent her for re-mailing to every'
section of the world.
In 1934, be'nt'o n'ending the
growing holiday 'mail rush, 'the
postoifice department ordered- dis-
continuance of. the name Christi
nas,",-b ut, a flood of lriet-r. m
Small over the nation protesting
against the change, brought re-
scinding of the order, and this
year authorities, seeing nothing
could be done about it, shrugged
and. sent Mrs. Tucker. a new ultra-
high speed cancellation machine
to allow .her to keep up with the
last minute rush of mail.
Among the prized possessions
of the little postmistress are twc
Christmas cards which come to
her each year, one signed "Frank-
lin Delano Roosevelt" and the
other "James A. Farley." She has
received, one from both men 'ever
since she became postmistress in
Stamp collectors and autograph
seekers also keep her busy, and
not a day goes past that she does
not have to autograph a letter for
some fan.

When the Wright. brothers developed the
first successful airplane 35 years ago, their
great accomplishment was hailed as another
triumph of man for the advancement of civil-
ization. Every new advance in the flying art,
since then has been similarly acclaimed.
But in later years events have happened to
make one wonder whether, after all, aviation
is a blessing or a curse. We are thinking par-
ticularly, of course, of the practice of' bomb-
ing civilian populations by military airplanes
in time of war.
_Such inhuman bombings, resulting in the
wholesale slaughter of women, children and
other noncombatants, have increased in' num-
ber and frightfulness from Year to year-in
Ethiopia, in Spain and in China. And the fren-
zied preparations for aerial-warfare being
madej'y supposedly civilized nations indicate
that we haven't seen anything' yet.
While, a European war has. been averted
for the present, peace is not-likely to continue
for any great length of time, unless the de-
mocracies completely surrender themselves
to the domination of the dictators. When
war comes, the airplane will present a menace
more terrifying than any the world has .ever,
Then mankind may indeed regret that the
airplane and other mighty engines of destruc-
tion were ever invented. And once more we
may say with Puck: "What fools these mor-
tals be."-Punta Gorda Herald.,

.: When, men are .deeply involved ;in strife,
-here is a common explanation. "There is a
woman at the bottom of it" How often this
is true! And When it is' not true, another
statement is: "There is a dollar at the bottom
of it."
Taking the dollar as a symbol of economic
advantage, we have in the dollar the true
cause of all the strife and conflict that curses
our world. Of course there are pretexts,
scores of.themn, but only one real cause-the
All this appeal to patriotism and devotion
to country is pretext as practiced by those
who would enlist a whole people in pursuit of
the dollar. That is what Japan is doing; that
is what Italy is doing; that is what Germany
is doing, and-is that what England is doing?

No, Hitler is.not concerned about Nordic

-4nyone who missed the band
concert last Sunday overlooked a
rare treat, for the band boys and
girls presented, the finest program
they have given to date. Some of
the numbers they have been prac-
ticing for the Centennial were
played and received hearty ap-
plause. One number in particular,
"Over the Alps," not only brought
forth much applause, but alse
verbal plaudits and comments from
the audience. This is a lengthy se-
lection, and parts of it present a
weird, oriental style.

and congratulates Director Dan

of molding these boys and girls
