WAR DEPARTMENT TURNS
DOWN CANAL EXTENSION
A report received yesterday by
The Star from the war depart-
ment states that the preliminary
examination report on construction
of the, intracoas'tal waterway from
Saint Marks to Tallahassee made
by district and division engineers,
is "unfavorable to the improve-
ment desired or to a detailed- sur-
vey at this time." ,
Grounds u-pon which the ad'-
verse conclusions are based are'
.that the benefits to be expected
from the construction of the canal
would not be sufficient to justify

County Gets '
Another Race I
Total for Season Is. Now $65,000;
Governor Suggests Surplus Be
Used For Improvements
County Clerk Joe Hunter has re-1
ceived another check for $27.000 Ho
from the state comptroller as Gulti
county's pro rata share of race tax
receipts. This check brings the to-
tal received by the county this
season from the race tax fund to or
$65,000, .which is almost double
the $33,000 guaranteed each county s iea
by the state. Bbth the comptroller
and the governor predict each
county will' have received about say
$90,000 by the time the record rac-
ing season ends. H
In commenting on this increase M
over the state guarantee of $33,000 Mot
which counties figured when mak-at
ing up their budgets, Governor nesc
Caldwell said: "I hope, inasmuch be
as the counties will receive be- nigh
tween two and three times as land
much from racing as they bud- 0
geted for expenditure, that the ex- at
cess will 'be used wherever needed vah
for improvement of county jails, and
courthouses and other permanent
public facilities." Le
If racing tax proceeds exceed
$90,000 per county this year, ap.

ties will get enough to pay almost T

THE BOY NEXT DOOR
The boy next door has come home. He's
whistling up thle street again. He's wearing
gaudy neckties and romping with his dog.
He's getting a civilian job and his uniform is
in. moth balls. He's through with war. It's
all over. He's home!
But some of the boys next door aren't
home, never will come home. Some will spend
the .rest of their lives in hospitals or return
with their youthful vigor spent.
For the boys who did come home, those
who can Whistle and' play with the dog, the
American Red Cross rejoices with the nation.
The Red Cross, with the nation, understands
the depth of its responsibility to all the other
young Americans who have sacrificed their
strength to the common.cause.
As a great peacetifiie ofaahization which
went to war when other peace-loving Ameri-
can civilians did, the Red Cross will follow
through toward victory and devote' itself
greatly to the welfare of hospitalized and
home-coming veterans; it will continue to
offer services to the men and women still in
uniform. It will be able to concentrate now
on acts of peacetime mercy, on relief for
war-caused suffering the world over.
This is your Red Cross, your opportunity
to welcome home the boy next door, the boy
in your own home, by buying a share in the
broad responsibilities of this postwar work in
the world we all have sought through bloody
years of battle;'
The Red Cross drive is now on in Port St.

set at $4700. Let's top that quota! Give!

difference between that amount and a dollar.

THE FACTS AND FIGURES reproduced below from the Jefferson Standard's 39th Annual

the foresight, the hopes, and the aspirations of more than 250,000 policyholders. <4 While putting "Planned

Audit Demanded Many Times
"I know 'that you, Mr. Soule,
made a great to-do about having
the books audited from A to Z,'"
replied' Tomlinson, "and a lot of
people who hardly have a shirt tu
their backs also were demanding
an audit, and I'm tired of political
campaigns Ibeing spiced with de-
mands of the city books being au-
dited, andi I want to get it off my
"I can understand how you
feel," said- Mayor Soule, "and 1
think the conditions you have just'
read are acceptalile to the com-
mission, so I ask for a motion on
them and a vote."
&s. Minus,. broke in at this
point, asking: "Before we vote,
Mr. Tomlinson should' have all as-
surance possible from the com-
mission, but if Mr. Tomlinson
should get mad with me, for In-
stance, and pop off and say he'd
resign in three days, what could
we do? T 'think the commission
should, have assurance that he will
stick to the job and not leave us
in a hole.:"
"I can assure you that nothing
like that would happen," restored
Tomlinson, "and I don't believe
you and' I would get mad' at each
other. As, I told the commission
before, I Intend to stay in Port
With that matter settled, Mayor
Soule called for a vote and the
stipulations set down by Tomlln-
son were accepted unanimously.
Last City Audit In 1913
The matter of cost of auditing
the city books was then taken up.
It waste brought out that -the books
had, not been audited since 1913,
and, City Attorney E. Clay Lewis
suggested that such an audit go
back' only to 1936, when 'the mu-
nicipal water, and, sewer system
was installed, and about the time
Mr. Tomlinson took on the job as
city clerk. Lewis estimated that
such an audit would cost in the
neighborhood of $7000 or $8000,
but Commissioner Conklin stated
Star Want Ads Bring Quick Results At Sma Cost.
that if an auditor be secured: about
the middle of the year, when busi-.
ness in the auditing line was a
little slack, it shquldn"t cost over
$3500 or $4000. Mayor Soule then
appointed Commissioners Conklin
and Minus' to make contact with
one or more auditing firms, and:
report back- to the commission.
(Lewis suggested that the bond
of the city clerk be raised, since
the city receipts are annually in
the neighborhood of $165,000, but
Tomlinson stated that the matter
of his bond could; not 'be changed
until after the audit of the city's
books, has been made.
Mayor Soule, who has been in
charge of the hospital 'then named
Mrs. Minus to carry on the duties
of the hospital.that he had been
handling, saying; "I think a wo-
man can talk to a woman, as I
have really 'been told off a number
of times, out -there at the hospital."
Mrs. Minus accepted the ap-
pointment, remarking: "Maybe that
will be my usefulness as a woman
on the city commission. I feel you
are putting a load' on. me, but that
is what I asked for when I quail-
fled, so I accept it."
Commissioner Conklin expressed
the opinion that, the hospital
should be operated by a board o.f
trustees,. Mayor Soule stated that
"we've had that experience in the
past, and you know what happened
-I think it should be in the hands
of one person that the hospital su-
perintendent could fall back on,
and I suggest that Mrs. Minus
work w ith the superintendent,
Mrs.'Thompson; and anything that
is brought up can be placed before
the commission by Mrs. Minus."
Garbage Collection Fees In Arrears
Several matters regarding the
budget and operation of the city
were brought up .and discussed.
It was brought out that garbage,
collection charges were delinquent
to the tune of more than $2000.
and as. the cost of operating the
scavenger department costs about,
$6400 annually, something had to
,be done. Attorney Lewis was in-
structed to revise the garbage
collection n ordinance and put teeth
in it ,s:o that .the delinquent ac-
counts could be collected.
Lewis asked 'that the pay of the
city attorney be raised to $75 per
month, effective April 1, pointing
out that he had been serving in
that capacity for several years at
$40 monthly and in earlier years
had worked; for from $15 to $25 a
month. "I'm always at the beck
and call of the city." said' Lewis,
"and it takes a lot of nmy time
when I could be. working on more
lucrative business." Commissioner
Chestnut stated that he would be
glad to donate his little bit of sal-
ary as city commissioner towards
boosting Attorney Lewis' pay.
Several other minor matters
were taken up and discussed be-
Griffin Named Police Chief
At the regular meeting of the
city commission Tuesday night
the matter of appointing a ,chief of
police, which was held over from
the February 26 meeting, was
taken up. The only name placed. In
nomination for the job was that of
Buck Griffin, who had' been name

of John Rowan. Since his was the,
only name placed before the board,
Mayor Soule declared his aippoint-

said that waste paper apparent tly
