Road Work Voted
By County Board

County Line and Grade Road

At the regular monthly meeting
of the board of county commission-
ers a resolution was passed calling
for sealed bids for putting in a
fill approximately 1000 "feet long
and 12 feet wide between Odena
and, the county line. .Bids are to
.Pe filed with Clerk Joe hunterr up
until 10 a. m. April 9.
A petition was presented to the
board a! this time asking for con-
struction of a public road from
Highway 6 to W. T. Rowell's fish
camp on the Dead Lakes, a dis-
tance of one and a hatt miles. A
motion was made and carried that
such a road be constructed when
funds are' available.
Due to the fact that the budget
for "ftie labor" at this time is
practically exhausted' and certain
- .road work must be done, the board
present- d a resolution to the state'
comptr-ller requesting that it be
alloweC- to transfer $1000 from the
item "Tools and Machinery" in the
budget to the "Free Labor" fund.
Dr. Dirdl of the health unit. ap-
peared before the 'board' at this
-meeting in connection with a full-
time physician for the county. The
matter was discussed, at length,
and it was decided that since Gulf
county could not have a full-time
physician, that a warrant.be drawn
in favor of tile Florida"sate board
of health for the sum of $3000 In
lieu of $4000 set up in the -budget
for the fiscal year ending Septem-
ber 30, 1946.
Among the various warrants au-
thorized for 'payment by the board
were two for the cities' of Port St.
Joe and We-yahitchka for $3000
each as these cities' allocation
from the race track fund.
If You Want To Fish For
Gar, Notify Game Warden
With the state fish and' game-
Commission paying 25 cents per
each for ganfish bills in this ddis-
trict, the taking of the pestiferous
gar is developing into -quite a
profitable industry around here, re-
ports having 'been received of two
fishermen clearing $75 in one day
and another pair paying for a $15
net with one haul.
However, Allen LeGrone, game
warden in this area, warns these
gar fishers to notify him at his
home in White City as to when
and where they are going to fish,
otherwise, if he should ; 'n across
them he would take it for granted
that they were taking game fish,
on which the. season is closed,, and
would, !be compelled to place them

'" Right or Wrong
LET THE POLITICIANS CONTRIBUTE
IF THEY WANT OUR BAND TO PLAY
The local high school band was dragged
out Thursday afternoon of last week to play
for the political rally staged for Spessard L.
Holland, who spoke here in the interest of
his campaign for senator. Upon querying the
band director, Stanford Beckham, whether or
not Mr. Holland contributed anything toward
our band fund which is being raised by our
local citizens to pay for. the new uniforms, in-
struments and music, we were informed that
not a nickel had been forthcoming.
We do not know whether or not our citi-
zens who support the band are willing for it
to play for political rallies (and, now that a
precedent has been established the band will
be called out for every two-bit politician that
comes along), but if they are, there is no rea-
son why the politicians or their local sup-
porters should not contribute at least $25 to-
ward the band fund.
Our band is one of the finest community
assets we have, and we expect it to be called
out for community affairs and an occasional
concert for our enjoyment, but we feel-and
we believe every right-thinking resident of
Port St. Joe feels the same way-that if out-
side politicians, who come here only when
they are seeking election, want the band to
play during their political ballyhoos, they
should contribute something toward the up-
keep of that band.
The Band Boosters Association has staged
benefits to raise funds for the band, and the
good ladies of our city have baked cakes, pies
and other foods to be sold to raise funds for
the organization-and for what? Apparently
for the benefit of a plague of political office-
seekers who have begun to invade our city.
We repeat: If these politicians want a band,
let 'em contribute toward its support.
Someone called a local would-be politician
"a sophisticated ass," and he
hunted a dictionary to see what

START THAT HOME GARDEN
President Truman has appealed to Ameri-
can families, to duplicate their wartime gar-
dening activities again this year, pointing out
that home gardens are urgently needed in
view of the present world food crisis.
Starvation threatens millions of people
overseas. The food grown in family gardens
this year can be as important in helping make
peace a reality as the wartime victory pro-
gram was in helping win victory.
So all of you good people people of Port
St. Joe who have a piece of vacant ground
around your yard (and who hasn't?), take up
your spades and hoes again and prepare a plot
on which to grow garden produce.
The pleasure you'll get out of it will more
than repay you for the time you put in on
it. And the pride and satisfaction you'll get
when you go out and gather a bunch of rad-
ishes, onions or carrots, or some choice to-
matoes, will really be something. We know,
because your editor, in .a small way, has been
cultivating a garden plot off and on during
the nine years he has been in Port St. Joe.
And look at Hig Stone--he's one of our best
gardeners; and there's Uncle Charlie 'MicCicl-
lan who specializes in growing seven and:
eight-pound cabbages; and Otto Anderson
who is always bragging about and showing
the choice vegetables he grows in his back
We can all do it, so let's go. Right now is
the time to get' those sepds in the ground if
we want to get the choicest vegetables.
THE THINGS WE'RE ASKED!
A newspaper editor apparently is supposed
to be the fount of all knowledge if the queries
he is'asked to give answers to is any criterion.
You'd be surprised at the variety of infor-
mation people seek of the editor of The Star
from time to time, such as the following re-
cent ones: What was the total vote cast when
Roosevelt went into office for his first term?
What is the capitol of Maine? Was Hitler's
real name Schickelgruber? How many acres
of land in a township? Was the first railroad
in the United States laid down at old St. Jos-
eph? Where did Angora cats originate? And
son on, ad infinitum.
The latest one is this: What is a "hush-
puppy," and why is it called that? We always
try to give an answer, cheerfully if possible,
and hope it is the correct one-a fellow's got
to keep up his reputation-so we told this
fellow that a hush-puppy is one of those
little corn pones served with fish (and they
are good!). It is called that because many
farm houses are completely surrounded by
hound dogs, including numerous offspring.
Enormous quantities of corn pones are baked
for the hounds, which devour them while, the
puppies cry piteously. So the cook fixes up
a lot of little pones which she dunks in pot
likker and serves the puppies-to make them

This Would Be a Good Place To Let
People Know About YOUR Business
(Continued from page 1)
Another fireman, considerably
wrought up, said.: "A few buckets
of water would have handled that
privy in fact, a fair-size dog
could have extinguished it. Now
don't get me wrong, 'I don't mean
.t small dog, but a good-sized lioun'
dawg with fair water pressure."
A somewhat similar occurrence
was experienced by the depart-
ment the afternoon of March T
when they were' called to Mallle
Johnson's house in Highland View
to a wash she.d, fire. After using
the, 150 gallons of water carried on
the struck, some of the onlookers
were as-ked to carry 'buckets. of
water to keep the pump- going.
They refused, to do so, saying it
was none of their business, so the
department loaded up and came
back to town, since there was no
other source of water.
Members of the fire department
feel that since they are extending
the good neighbor hand to the
people of Highland, View, leaving
themselves wide open for criticism
should a fire occur within the city
I while they are away, that the. least
the people of Highland View can
do is to co-operate in any manner,
shape or form.

Lt. E. M. Godfrey III, arrived in
