City Charter Is
Passed By Voters
Provides for Five-Man City Com-
mission Holding Office for
A total of 323 voters turned out
Tuesday to cast their .ballots in
the city charter amendment elec-
tion on the question of whether
the board of commissioners should
consist of five members or remain
as a board of three as at present.
By a vote of 216 to 105--better
than two to one-tihe amendment
was carried (two ballots were
thrown out as spoiled) and, as, pro-
vided in the bill passed, by the
legislature, f i v e commissioners
will be, elected at large next Feb-
ruary, whose terms of office will
be for a period of two years.
The bill also provides that "said
commissioners shall receive, such
compensation as the city commis-
sion may fix and designate by or-
dinance, but not in excess of $25
per month per commissioner."
Acting as po'l keepers at the
election were W. W. Barrier. Mrs.

firmative vote of two members (of
the commission) shall be neces-
sary to adopt any ordinance or

that "five eacloiors shall be elected

Our Country Right or Wrong
U. S. COAST GUARD-1790 1945
One hundred fifty-five years of uninter-
rupted, distinguished service to the United
States' "ain't hay," as the vernacular saying
goes. The U. S. Coast Guard should be justi-
fiably proud of its more than a century and
a half of service, in peace and war. -The na-
tion is proud of the Coast Guard.
This small outfit, a wartime force of 170,-
000, but a scant 10.000 in peacetime, is well
described by the word versatile. Even its
motto "Semper Paratus" (always ready),
catches the spirit of the Coast Guard.
When the attack on Hawaii hurled us into
war, many new jobs had to be undertaken.
Expert small boat handlers began landing as-,
sault troops on distant beaches. The Coast
Guard organized yachtmen with seagoing
"know how" to back the all-too-few naval
vessels' facing Nazi wolf packs in the waters
along our shores; footsore sailors patrolled
40,000 miles of vulnerable coastline, including
that in the vicinity of Port St. Joe; light-
houses and other aids to navigation were kept
in operation ; Coast Guard fliers patrolled sea
lanes, snatched hundreds of survivors frorli
And still these Coast Guard boys in landing
craft roar into new beachheads in the orient.
Coast Guard transports shuttle U. S. troops
from Europe to Asia. Coast Guard sub-busters
work with the navy on Jap subs.
It is most fitting, in the final exertions of
this struggle, to remember the birthday of the
little service doing so many big jobs well!

SOME PEOPLE TAKE THEIR POLITICS
There's something we've never been able
to understand, and that is why most politicians
take their politics so seriously. Personally.
we don't mix in politics much-they are too
dirty. But when we do mix in occasionally
and the shouting is all over, win, lose or draxv,
we hold no grudge against those whom we
might have been opposing. Being of a trust-
ing nature, we've always hoped that the other
fellow would feel the same way about it. But,
alas and alack, such is seldom the case, and
we find very few so-called politicians who
hold to this view. If they win or lose. from
then on we're right up at the top of their list
of public enemies.
What brought this on is Representative C.
C. Wilson's attitude of animosity engendered
during the last legislative election when the
editor of The Star supported E. Clay Lewis
for representative and which was dragged out
again during the city charter amendment
election Tuesday. After all, as Uncle Charlie
himself so often points out, this is a free coun-
try, and we told him before and after the
election that the columns of The Star were
open to him at all times and that we harbored
no persoanl grudge against him, even though
he did defeat our man. When the dust had
settled and the final returns were in we ad-
vised the people of Gulf county that "Every-
one should co-operae fully with our new rep-
resentative in the legislature."
Much to our' sorrow we 'find that almost-
all politicians take their politics too seriously,
but there" isn't a doggoned thing we can do
DOG POISONER AT WORK
We have been reliably informed that three
or four dogs in the city have been poisoned
during recent weeks. There is nothing much
that anyone can 'do about the matter, as catch-
ing red-handed sly, sneaking individuals who
do such rotten things is difficult, inasmuch as
they do their murderous prowling at night.
We cannot understand why anyone would
want to treat our canine friends in such' an
inhuman way, and all we can suggest is that
dog owners would do well to keep their pets
close to home for the next few weeks.
