St. Joe Lumber Has
Now For Building
Can Be Secured For Five Years
At 6 Per Cent for Dwellings,
Stores, Remodeling, Repairs
What we consider the best news
to develop in Port St. Joe for a
long time broke yesterday when
:Dwight Marshall of the St. Joe
Lumber company came, into The
Star office and said he wanted to
place an advertisement announc-
ing that he had money to loan at
6 per cent over a period of five
years for new construction.
If we'd had a hat on, we would
ha6 thrown it to the ceiling, and
S.a it was we uttered an ear-split-
ting "hurrah!" for right now what
this city needs is money made
available to everyone for the con-
struction of new homes, stores:
and the like, and for remodeling
"There are no str;rings attaches
to these loans, outside the usual
security," said Mr. Marshal, "and
the rate is six per cent with a,
anaximum repayment-:,.period of
five-years. However, we must
limit loans to $2500. This -is not
FHA money, but comes from the
outside. We are still handling five
per cent FHA loans, but the ,maxi-
mum time is three years which, in
our opinion, makes the repayment
installments too large."
'Mr. Marshall didt not state, but
we take it for granted that there
is a considerable sum available
fSr these loans, and with five
years to repay, re should see a
considerable nun ,-er of new resi-
dences started 'within the next
month or so.

Little Damage Results Outside of Port St. Joe Terminal Com-
pany Warehouse; Telephone and Telegraph Communi-
cations Interrupted and Electric Service Cut Off;
Menhaden Company Ship Is Run Aground
A tropical storm originating near Puerto Rico and dis-
covered Tuesday morning, crossed the Florida peninsula to
the Gulf of Mexico at Tarpon Springs Saturday morning and
hit Apalachicola, Port St. Joe and Panama City late Satur-
day afternoon. Weather bureau reports, were that the wind
reached a velocity of 50 miles_ a' n1ur -: h gusts recording
60 miles an hour. Hurricane force is 75 miles.
In Port St. Joe the wind blew strongly out of the north
until about 5 o'clock Saturday afternoon, accompanied by
heavy rain. Then ensued a period of calm for about an hour,
as the storm center passed over this area. The wind then_
reversed and began blowing from the south co'i,-lderably
harder than the first part of the storm.
Warehouse Suffers Considerable Damage
Little damage was reported in the city, outside ofa, few
trees blown-down ahd sIhingles ripped fr.i.m garages ano resi-
dences. The greatest damage was to the recently-completed
warehouse of the Port St. Joe Terminal company, which had
both ends blown out, with damage estimated in the neighbor-
hood of $4,000. Several workmen's houses at the-plant of
the St. Joe Lumber & Export company were blown from their
foundations, but no one was injured.
Telegraph and telephone lines into this city were put out
of commission and the electric service was interrupted for
about three hours, causing business houses to close their
doors shortly after nightfall, although a few catered to an
occasional customer braving the storm by using candles for
Storm Did Not
MHany residents of Port St.
Joe, who witnessed their first
tropical "blow" last Saturday,
were under the impression that
the storm passed over this sec-
tion and then "came back."
This idea was gained due to
the period of calm for about an
hour when the storm center
hovered over the city.
Storms such as we had visited
upon us Saturday, generally
cover an area of considerable
size with the wind blowing
in a circle, counter-clockwise,
with a dead calm in the center.
Consequently when the first of
the storm struck here the wind
came from a northerly direc-
tion. continuing until the center
of the storm reached us, when
we had a breathing spell. Then
when the venter passed an. the
other side of the storm reached
us, the wind came from the

Hitler's much advertised move to seize the Free City of
Danzig from Poland is about due, now that the harvest has
been gathered. If Germany strikes, it will be a general war
which may work undreamed changes on the political map of
the world. But equally important should become the conse-
quences if the summer goes by without the nazis trying to
make good their reiterated boasts.'

Garner Organization Claims
461 Delegates on Ist Ballot
DALLAS, Texas. John Nance
Garner, vice-president of the United
States, will go into the next Demo-
cratic national convention with over
461 votes pledged to him, according
to E. B. Germany, chairman of the
State Democratic Executive commit-
tee and co-chairman of the Texas
"We are convinced, from the del-
uge of pledges we .have received at
the Dallas headquarters, that there
is a genuine popular demand for the
nomination of Mr. Garner on the
Democratic ticket. This comes, not
from one section or group of states,
but from the entire nation. From
Oregon and Vermont, and from
Georgia to the Southwest, we are
getting the most enthusiastic protes-
tations of friendship and admiration
for our stalwart Texas statesman.
"Mr. Garner's way of thinking has
captured the public imagination of
the middle ground of America's
straight-thinking citizenry. If the
politicians do not listen to the voice
of the people in 1940, 1 predict that
the Democratic party as an organiza-
tion won't be worth shooting. I have
heard many comments that the poli-
ticians are going to pick the next
candidates for both the Democratic
and Republican parties. My' advice
to them in both parties is to listen
to what the people are thinking. 11
they don't heed the deep longings o0
the mass of America's citizenry, they
will be politically dead after the nexi
election. I repeat: If the Democratic
politicians attempt to thwart the will
of the people in the next convention,
the pajty of Jefferson and Jackson
won't be worth the effort to put it
out of its misery."
In outlining the strength that he
claims for the Texan, Mr. Germari'y
pointed out that out of 1,100 votes in
the Democratic convention, the south
and border states will furnish Mr.
Garner with 286, the chief block of
which is represented by the 46 votes
from Texas. The.southwest and west-
ern states, without counting Califor-
nia, and taking but two of the farm
states, Nebraska and Wisconsin, will
yield Mr. Garner a total of 461 votes.
"Now I am not including in this
forecast of 461 the 210 additional
'votes indicated from the states of
New York, Pennsylvania and Cali-
fornia," declared Mr. Germany. The
Gallup poll in the last three weeks
has printed definite forecasts of pub-
lic opinion from these three states,
which together have 19 percent of
the total convention strength. These
polls show, assuming that the Presi-
dent will not be a candidate which
is the only way that Democrats be-
lieving in the continuance of its tra-
ditional party .policies can think, that
Mr. Garner is the choice of over 50%
of the Democrats in New York and
California and of over 60% of the
Democrats of Pennsylvania.
Oat of these three states, two will
give Mr.iGarner a clear majority of
the convention, the Texas leader
"There is no question in my mind,"
declared Mr. Germany, "that the peo-
ple of the United States have very
definite convictions on the coming
,residential campaign. The principles

everywhere They embrace Mr. Gar-
ner because he stands for a principle
that finds welcome reaction in every
human being who worries and some-
times wonders on the future of his
"Mr. Garner's nomination by the
Democrats of this country is inevita-
ble. It is ordained in the hearts of the
Ameriean people, and 1 view his

NO CONCERN OF OURS
A friend of ours dropped into the office the
other day and began telling the" editor how
awful things were in Europe and China and
that the United States ought to do something
about it immediately, if not sooner.
We listened to him patiently, as we al-
ways have been a good listener, and then we'
had our little say.
We pointed out to him that there un-
doubtedly Were more people like him in these
United States, but that the great majo'rity-
of the people do not'want to enter into a war
with anybody about anything. That
the people as a whole consider the ruckuses
among European nations as no concern of
ours and that we shouldn't be pulling their
chestnuts out of the fire. That we,
as a people, resent the invasion of China by
Japan, but still do not consider that we should
go over and slap down the Japs. We prob-
ably would if they grabbed the Philippines,
but that would be an' entirely different prop-
osition-they would be starting a war in our
back yal... .That the people of this
nation are sympathetic with those nations
struggling to maintain the liberties of a de-
mocracy, but that this in no way threatens
our liberties under our democratic form of
government. .. .And that, finally, the
best thing for us to -do would be to build up,
our army, navy and air force to such a point
that other nations would consider a long
time before they took a poke at us.
We don't know whether we changed the
attitude of our 'friend toward the foreign situ-
ation, but at least we believe, we gave him
something to think about.
The reaction the ordinary reader gets
when he or she sees something advertised
attractively is that the product must be what
it is claimed to be or its makers would not
spend their money pushing it.
They do not spend their money pushing it.
They do not say much about the goods that
they are not willing to back up. They may
have to carry some brands of goods that are
a drag on the market because the public has
not been made acquainted with them, but
when a maker or merchant endorses some-
thing heartily and enthusiastically, you can
depend on it that it is something that is ad-
vertised-evidence in itself that all the value
claimed for the product is there.
As a result of that kind of encdprsement,
advertising brings profitable return. If the
product offered is a real bargain-and mer-
chants will not usually advertise it as such
unless it is-then a demand is instantly cre-
ated for it and the public will buy it.
You can depend on advertised goods. They
are better, or they wouldn't .be advertised,
Attorney General Gibls has ruled that bar-
bers of Florida may give finger waves "and

right, men, the line forms at the right for

IT'S GETTING CLOSER
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
This is not an editorial on high taxes or
grafting politicians, but facts issued by of-
ficials of the United States mint in Washing-
ton showing that an enormous amount of
money issued is lost or otherwise disappears
so that the treasury never has to redeem it,
but is that much to the good.
It is estimated that 5,000,000,000 pennies
have been misplaced since the government
began making them, which doesn't include
the one you are using in your fuse box to
make a blown-out fuse-plug work. Of the
old-time two-cent pieces, of which more than
91,000,000 were coined, more thi-n 57,000,000
are still missing, while less than one-third of
the 94,000,000 three-cent pieces minted more
than a half-century ago were ever returned
for redemption. Of course a large number
of these coins are in the hands of collectors.
But it is not only small coins that do not
return. More than 10,000,000 of the old large-
sized $1 bills, the issue of which was discon-
tinued about 10 years ago, never got back
to the treasury, and the same is true of many
large-sized bills of higher denominations. Of
course, a considerable amount of this old
'money is probably hoarded away and may
come to light some day.
Incidentally, by reducing the size of paper
currency by one-third it is estimated that the
treasury has saved about $18,000,000 in cost
of paper, ink, labor and storage space in the
-last 10 years.
However, with spending going on at the
rate of more than $9,000,000,000 a year, such
a saving is only a drop in the treasury bucket
THE POT SIMMERS
Those who enjoy politics and the thrilling
sport .of voting for or aginn" somebody will
in all likelihood find plenty to entertain them
next year. The woods seem to be full of po-
tential -candidates for this, that and the
other office. Go to it, boys, there's more
money in politics, if you are successful, than S'
in marching across a field behind "Old Beck" t(
for six months in the year. c
The pity of it all is that so many men who l
are not financially able to stand the cost of v
a losing campaign, and who have no more
show of election than a toad has of jumping i,
over the moon, will get into a political race ft
and spend money that might better be spent P
But there isn't a bit of use in advising a
man not to run for office if he asks your i
opinion of his chances. He's probably heard
two or three people make the remark that t
he's just the man for the job and that his cr
country needs him. There may be several an
thousand voters in the county who lhave NOT
asked him to run, but that makes no differ- it
ence with him. Two or three have asked him ut
to run, and he feels that he is the Arnold m
Winkelreid who is destined to lead the co- o
horts to victory. You might just as well tell l
him to get in the game and try out the water,
for if you advise him not to run he will thinI T
