PROTECT OUR SCHOOL CHILDREN
The paving of Long avenue from First
-street to Mlonument Park not only opens up
a cross-city boulevard but also provides a
speedway for unthinking motorists who drive
their cars along the avenue at forty to, fifty
-miles an hour, all unmindful of danger at in-
tersections and the consequences that might
result should another car dash out from a
But that is not what we are getting at.
W'e ask these motorists to drive carefully on
Long avenue, not because they are risking
their own necks, but because they are en-
dangering the lives of school children on their
way to and from our public schools which
arc located on Long avenue.
At the close of the school day, children
have the pleasures of the afternoon before
them moore than the dangers of the road, and
as they burst forth joyfully from the doors
of the school house they are liable to dash
across the street wit't never a thought of
looking to the right or left. If motorists ap-
proaching the school zone on Long avenue
do not give thought to what might be the
precipitate action of some child, the result is
liable to be fatal.
Our townspeople know where the school
zone is, but visitors do not, and we urge the
immediate erection of "School Zone" markers
on Long avenue to warn visitors and our own
unthinking citizens to slow down.
Motorists of British Malaya have no fuel
taxes, insurance or driver's license to pay
since introduction of a $25 per year tax on
all cars, which takes care of everything.

WHAT THE STATISTICS SHOW .-
We are in receipt of two interesting book-
lets from Nathan Mayo commissioner of ag-
riculture, which contain varied and sundry
statistics about Gulf county as well as the
remainder of the state. The compilations are
found from the 21st census, taken in 1936-37
under act of the legislature in 1935.
Gulf county, according to these statistics,
contains 349,976 acres with 204 farms, which
produced field and truck crops valued at $21,-
837. Fruits and nuts brought $5,689, while
114,304 pounds of honey, principally tupelo,
was valued at $11,243. Livestock in the county
was valued at $132,581 and sales of stock
came to $48,464, which included _- ., milk
and butter. Naval stores, 129,000 gallons of
turpentine and 8,600 barrels of rosin, were
valued at $119,700. Value of the paper indus-
try is not listed, as the mill in fort St. Joe
was not in operation at that time.
Climatological data compiled from 1891 to
1937 gives an average yearly temperature for
North Florida of 68.9 degrees and 70.8 de-
grees for the entire state. Average yearly
rainfall for this section during the 46-year
period is 53.47 inches. The greatest rainfall
ever recorded for a 24-hour period was in
i924, when somewhere in the state 23.22
IMuch other interesting data on Gulf county
is contained in these two booklets, and any-
one interested is invited to drop in at The
Star office and look them over-we refuse to
lend them out, as we have loaned out similar
Ibooklets in the past and they are still "out."
HOW ABOUT PLANTING TREES?
Tallahassee seems to be having trouble
with concerns and individuals cutting down
trees along the city's streets. "There are
signs that an aroused citizenry, encouraged
by official co-operation, has already halted
the tree stripping that had left some blocks
of our city open to the blazing sun," says the
Port St. Joe doesn't have that trouble, but
what we do need is to arouse the citizenry to
the fact that the planting of trees along our
city streets would not only provide shade
from the blazing sun but would do much to-
ward beautifying our little city and enhanc-
ing property values.
This is too good to pass up. The hobo who
comes into the newspaper office and asks for
exchanges has a new explanation for the use
of them When asked if he wanted the old
papers in order to read the society notes or
to locate the bath house, he said: "Naw, rail-
roads are so dirty that we wants to use 'em
on the floor to keep our. clothes clean, see?
Give me Republican sheets, ir you got any.
Dey are softer, de arguments ain't so solid
and de facts ain't de cold kind wot knocks

Oh, say, can you sing from the

What so proudly you stand for

When the whole congregation, in

How valiant they shout when

The pests that attack your tiny
cabbage plants and eat up the cu-
cumber vines need some rough
treatment with the spray and dust-
er. Give it to them early when
most damage can be done, and
keep the lethal weapons at hand
for the rest of the summer to
deal with them as they arrive.
New materials and methods of
application have taken the fear of
pests out of the garden, but they
should be used early and ruthlessly.
Two types of poison (sold at
Chemists or under many trade
pames) will take care of all insect
pests. One is a contact poison,
made from nicotine, pyrethrum,
rotenone or other elements, which
ils what comes in contact with it.
e other is a stomach poison,
which kills leaf eating pests.
Insecticides should be applied
intelligently, and it is well to study
instructions. Some of them are en-
tirely harmless to humans (ro-
tepone) while deadly to insects;
others, like arsenic, should be ap-
lied carefully, and vegetables that
ave come in contact with it thor-
oughly washed before eaten. It

suring protection from all pests.
