ON THANKSGIVING DAY
State Will Be Week Behind Rest
Of Nation Next Year
Whether members of the 1941
Florida legislature planned it that
way or merely forgot that some
months have five Thursdays, the
state will be out of step with the
rest of the country in its 1944
Thanksgiving observance as a ree-
sult of a bill they passed.
The 1941 law says Thanksgiving
in Florida must fall "on the last
Thursday" of November, and At-
torney, General Tom Watson has
advised Governor Holland he has
no authority to change it although
the remainder of the country will
observe Thanksgiving on the
fourth Thursday next year when
November has five Thursdays.

Our Country Right or Wrong
ANOTHER MILESTONE PASSED
With this issue The Star enters its seventh
year of publication with a record of six years
of what we hope and believe has been six
years of service rendered on behalf of the
community. We could present in cold, figures
the amount of space given to various activi-
ties, such as bond and scrap drives, the Red
Cross, the infantile paralysis campaign, home
de ense, price control, gas and tire rationing,
civic club activities, and hundreds of other
matters that affect the lives of all of us, but
we won't because we feel that that is our job
of upholding public morale.
We're satisfied to sit down, look back over
the past six years and feel that we've done
our job the best we knew how and that our
readers and ,the. people of our community ap-
preciate what 'little we have done. They can
rest assured-that we will continue to do the
job set before us in the future as we have in
the past, without fanfare and without bally-
S'WAY OVER THE TOP
Gulf county went 'way over the top in the
Third \,War Loan campaign with its $90',1 ,
surpassing by far even the rosiest expecta-
tions of the biggest optimists.
in other parts of the nation, while the goal
was passed, disappointment has been ex-
pressed because -subscriptiolns from large fi-...
nancial and business concerns gave victory inl
the canipaigng, not purchases by individuals
of the S'ries E bonds, which was the main
idea of fte drive. But we here in Gulf county,
I ,Lurt St. Joe in particular can be proud 'of
the fact that the greater portion of the-.money
B -st 'ribcd went into E bonds, coming out of
poc c't O the little fell.ovs. This is as it
shouhi be, for the little ficlow is just the guy
i.lo is gi.Olg to need these easy dollars he
is able to save now when tlihe pinch comes
But now that the drive is over we should
not stop buying bonds, but endeavor to buy
as many or more than we did before the re-
cent drive started. The 1i, ;,, of bonds is
the best safeguard against an inflationary-
condition which might end in disaster.
For the showing Culf county and Port St.
Joe made in the campaign the thanks of the
community are due to the able and energetic
direction of the Third War Loan committee
headed by Horace Soule. All committee merm-.
bers labored earnestly and untiringly for theti
country and their community.
LET'S LOOK TO THE FUTURE
The Star this week carries notice of an
election; tot be held November 2 for the pur-
pose of creatInp-, if the voters so desire, a
pprm";ent building; fund for construction of
;school 1lildings in Gulf .county. Incidentally,
at the same time school trustees will be so-
lected and the village to provide money for
sch'ooI purposes will be set.
However, we're Cnot particularly interested
in who will be our school trustees for the
next two years because we believe that any
decent and honest citizen of the county would
make a good trustee, and we're not particta-
larly interested in the millage to be set, for
it is suggested that three and one-half mills
will be sufficient (though ten mills could be I
voted under state law) and our school board
says that that will be enough to operate
our school system, and they should know.
But what we ARE interested in is that pro-
posai to create a building fund. We all know
what a hard time e liad getting a new school
building heire through thle IWPA and what a
typical 'T I'A building it is. From all inchdica-
tions it will be ready for replacement within
a few xa:'.--x-and where will the money come
That is where the building fund would come
in. at oiylt' would it provide us with a new
school plant, which is really needed now, but
it will pro',ide a certain miodtium of employ-
ment when this war ends and we can again
construct necessary public buildings. We're
And not only would we like to see thrs
building fund created for our school system,
but we would like to see our city levy a mill
or two for the duration wxile all this cheap
money is floating around, the resulting fund
to be used for the construction of a badly-
needed combined city hall,' fire station and
