Flames Destroy

Block of Buildings

In Highland View

Strong Breeze and Lack of Fire
fighting Equipment Hamper
Fire Fighters

Fire of undetermined origin com-
pletely destroyed Shirey's Bar, the
Fritz Christiansen store building
and two smaller store buildings,
one occupied by a cafe, at High-
land' View early Wedn.sday morn-
The fire was discovered by Sol
Shirey about 2:30 and an alarm
turned in to the Port St. Joe fire
department. However, the blaze
had made such headway whan dis-
covered that little could be done to
save the bar and the Christiansen
building, which adjoined.
An effort was made by the St.
Joe firemen to save the other two
buildings, but due to a strong
br.eze and the fact that the pump
on the fire truck became clogged
with sand in pumping water from
the bay, their efforts were of little
avail. Highland View has no fire
protection system.
Estimated loss has been placed
in the neighborhood of $7500.
Boost to the city of Port St. Joe
in answering the call was placed
at about $175. A fire ladder an'
110 fjet of hose were burned, the
.truck mired down in the sand at
the edge of the bay, necessitating
the services of a tow car, firemen
had to be' ald -and the pump on
the fire truck had to be dismantled
to remove the sand.
A spectacular feature of the fire
occurred when a 200-pound tank of
i.bottled gas in the cafe exploded,
sending showers of burning wood
and sparks in all directions.

174 Register

In New Draft

One hundred seventy-four Gulf
county youths in the 18 to 20 age
bracket registered Tuesday in the
nation's fifth draft registration. Or
the .174, draft board officials were
unable to say how many would be
subject to immediate call in the
20-year-old group but said such in-

tabulation is made. I
Only the 20-year-olds who regis-
tered Tuesday are subject to im-
mediate call under the national
selective service act. However,
the army has indicated it wants
congressional action to draft the
younger group.
A number of Gulf county youths
registered in other communities
and their cards will be sent here,
which will boost the total a bit.
In Port St. Joe 128 were signed
up, both white and colored, with
24 registered in Wewahitchka and
22 at the colored CiOC camp.
The call Tuesday completed the
registration of all Gulf county men
between the ages of 18 and 65 and'

Scrap Rubber

Drive Extended

For Ten Days

Estimated That Thirteen Tons Has
Been Turned In Here
To Date

Due to the fact that- the scrap
rubber drive throughout the nation
through Saturday had brought in
a disappointing total tonnage,
President Roosevelt extended the
drive for an additional 10 days.
The campaign now will continue
until next Friday, July 10.
With the additional 10 days in
which to work, Gulf county should
more that double the quota of
20,000 .pounds (10 tons) assigned
by the state salvage headquarters,
as up to yesterday there had been
approximately 101/2 tons gathered
in Port St. Joe and 6 tons in We-
wahitchka, with an estimated 21/2
tons piled up at Kenney's Mill.
So now with 10 days more -to
go we should be able to raise an
additional seven tons of old rub-
ber to double our quota. It is
honed that everyone in Gulf county
will make a final effort to get out
all old' and useless rubber around
their homes and places of business
and turn it in for use of the gov-
Jimmy Greer at J. Lamar Mil-
ler's service station, central ci-

they've got so much rubber stored
they have barely room to turn
around. Let's .turn,in enough so

Today we are fighting to uphold our free-

As time goes on, our Port St. Joe stores
will have a changed appearance. There will.
be less goods on the shelves in many. in-
stances. Some items will vanish altogether,
and some will be extremely scarce. In time,
,widespread rationing of a large number of
necessities may be put into effect. These arc
the inevitable results of war's enormous de-
mands on America's productive resources.
But there is one thing that will not change
in our local stores-and that is the ambition
of their owners to serve their customers to
the limit of their ability. Their policy will be
guided by the competitive urge. Tomorrow,
as in the past, they will be seeking ways and
means to earn the patronage of the people.
War will probably force immense changes
in the home life of residents of Port St. Joe.
We will have to forego most luxuries and
use a minimum of many necessities. The job
of the stores of Port St. Joe will be to help
us in making these difficult adjustments in
our living standards.'

Air raid wardens in Port St. Joe say they
have had no difficulty this week with house-
holders keeping lights burning on the bay
.side of their residences. Everyone knows the
reason for this sudden compliance.

Florida Bar Is

Chastised By

Supreme Court

Judge Says Bar Condones An Un-
scrupulous Minority Who Are
Unfaithful Stewards

The Florida Supreme Court this
week chastised the bar of the state
for condoning "an unscrupulous
minority" who have "too much
concern about fees and' winning
cases and too little concern about
administering justice."'
"Whatever truth there is to the
charge that the public no longer
trusts the bar is not due to the
act that a majority have become
ethically, obtuse," the court said in
Decision affirming the disbar-
nent of a St. Petersburg attorney
or unprofessional conduct. "It is
due' to the fact that tne oar con-
dones an unscrupulous minority
sho are unfaithful stewards, who
insist on placing emphasis in the
wrong place, too much concern
btout fees and not enough in the
administering of justice in the way
to inspire public confidence." The
opinion was written by Judge
'lenn Terrell.
"Public confidence in the bar
vill return in proportion to the
extent it becomes sensitive to its
stewardship and makes the admin-
stration of justice its major objec-
ive," Judge Terrell said. "Nor
will it return while the administra-
ion of justice jogs along as did
Balaam on the back of an ass
while every other democratic
process travels by twentieth cen-
ury vehicle.
"If you find wiggle-tails in your
milk or cockroaches in your bread

and the grocer quicker than it
takes to' tell it.
