Triplets Born Here To
Receive Free Milk
Those three baby girls, Linda
Lou, Laura Lee and Lenora Sue
Williams, born at the Port St.
Joe municipal hospital March 15
to Mr. and Mrs. H. B. Williams
of Fort White, Fla., will receive
free of cost from the Pet MilIK
Company, all the milk they need
as long as they require it. i
This information came from
Dr. A. L. Ward, who delivered
the triplets. He is attending a
convention of doctors in New,
Orleans this week and stated
that he mentioned the fact that
he had brought the three young
ladies into the world and a rep-
resentative of the Pet company,
Frank Swans.on, overheard the
remark. Mr. Swanson immedl-.
ately asked for the name and ad-
dress of the parents, informing
Dr. Ward that his company
would provide the free milk.
"It looks as. though members
of the family will have to do
without some foods in order to
keep those triplets fat and sassy,
'so the Pet company will take
over the job of feeding them,"

Ow Country Right or Wrong
LAY YOUR COURSE, AMERICA!
Like spring thunderheads the evidence
towers blackly, formidably, over the country,
plainly spelling out a fact that can no longer
be ignored: Inflation cannot be controlled by
decree. The issue of whether to sacrifice a
continually larger measure of representative
government in the hope of putting the lid on
inflation, is rapidly becoming academic. We
have both inflation and dangerously auto-
cratic government. The only real question is
how to get rid of the frustrated decree sys-
tem before it becomes a "way of life."
Total war brought about unavoidable- pub-
lic debt increases. This debt is beginning to
bear down upon the home front in. rising,
prices and depreciating money, with all of the
accompanying evils. The people should begin
to think clearly on these problems-their
freedom hangs in the balance. As disillusion-
ment spreads, they will have a tendency to
look for somebody t6 blame. The danger is
that they will blame our form. of .government
itself, because so many irresponsible public
officials have been making foolish promis~..
It is a short step from blaming government
to changing government, and if we change
our government in this country it can be
changed in but one direction-away from "by
the people and for the people." Unless the
American people think clearly during this
critical period they may -let inflation sowV
seeds of bitterness that will sweep away the
great American experiment in human 'free-
dom which has given this nation so rich a' life
for over a century and a half.
We should realize now as never before that
America had a war to win. Wars are won by
"blood and treasure." We gave our blood and
we are now giving our 'treasure-it is being
exacted from us through inflation.
Inasmuch as modern wars are total wars,
the material price may prove to be high. And
yet we have no reason to kick, rjuch less ex-
pect our government to float the nation pain-
lessly over the abyss. In the days ahead we
must weigh our values carefully. We must
draw a mental line. On one side we must put
our mo:u-y, our material possessions; on the
other wc must put the things of the spirit,
our form of government, the sanctity of the
invididual, principles for which this country
stand', and for which human beings have
struggled through the centuries to attain.
This -piritual side of the "ledger" must be
held inviolate. It is our capital, inherited from
the ages. It is our only means of building a
new and better world.
It has been suggested that a commemora-
tive postage stamp be issued by the postot-
fice department on June-23 honoring Irvin S.
Cobb, which date would have been his 70th
birthday. Considering Cobb's avoirdupois,
such a stamp would probably be the largest
ever issued by the United States.
The only foreign sovereign ever portrayed
on a U. S. coin was Queen Isabella of Spain-
her bust once appeared on a dime. Lana
Turner would need a silver dollar.
WHAT THE READER BUYS
Why does a family spend a little less than
four cents a week to get a subscription to
The Star? ,
Four cents a week means just a little more
than half a cent a day. It's a small amount.
The average child wastes more than that
A special sale, advertising a 30-cent item
for 23 cents, will save seven cents, paying the
cost of The Star for one week and giving a
profit of three cents. Or take that paint spe-
cial B. W. Eells advertised at his Firestone
Store a couple of weeks ago, offering a 29-
cent can of enamel for nine cents-there was
a saving of 20 cents, paying for your Star for
an entire month.
You pay more than three cents a day to
rent a book from the lending library. The
Star costs a half cent a day-and did you ever
see anybody reading a book who didn't lay it
aside promptly when The Star came?
Every member of the family, from nine
years of age up-children, parents, grandpar-
ents-find something of interest in The Star.
That can't be truthfully said about any book
or any. other periodical.
It costs more per week for any of the fol-
lowing than it does for The Star: Four cig-
arets, two ounces of beer, one package of gum,
a bar of candy, one cigar, a cup of coffee.
When you've finished reading your Star,
every other member of the household can
still use it. You can't say that about gum,
candy or tobacco.
Someone once asked Calvin Coolidge whe-
ther he had any opinions on the subject of
sin. "I'm agin' it," 'he said.
Today, on the subject of inflation, it is safe
to say that everybody in Port St. Joe feels
pretty much the same way. They're aginn" it.
But being against anything isn't necessar-
ily the best way to do anything about it. And
talking about what ought to be done isn't
necessarily going to get that necessary some-
Actually, the best place to ,start fighting in-

We have had a report that the
baseball team is rapidly coming
into being. The first game is to be
played at Wewahitchka April 10.
The high school band went to
Apalachicola last Friday in a re-
turn engagement of the concert
that was played here. The, Ap-
alachicolans treated us royally.
The festivities started oft with the
three bands, Apalachicola, Carra-
belle and Port St. Joe, marching
through the business, section of the
Oyster City. After this, two hours
were spent in practicing the num-
bers to be played. The bands were
then treated to a chicken supper In
the school lunch room. All in all
we hadi a grand time.
The seniors took the ..annual
state achievement test (commonly
referred to as the "moron test")
TMonday. It was an all-day job and
included tests on mathematics,
English, social studies and psy-
cholgy. Purpose of these tests is
to rank the various schools and

to Monday for the spring fidiays.
Reason for this holiday was the
state teachers' meeting at Tampa.
AIL the teachers, left Wednesday
morning for Tampa. The meeting
opened Thursday evening and' will
continue until Saturday.
This week marks the end of the
fifth six weeks' -period. School .ill
be out in another six weeks, and
all over town will be heard the
cries: "Johnny, get down out of
that tree!" "Sammy, come home."
"Hustis, turn loose of that cat's

"Good 01' Summer Time." '
Speaking of summer, you should
see the cases of spring fever at
school. Howardi Kelly, who usually
iust sits,' now lies.. J. D. Shealy
has a cord 'tied' to his books ana
the other end tied, to a dog's tail
to keep from carrying them. Chuck
Gibson is insisting on playing sec-
on.d base on the baseball team so
he won't have to run so much.,
Robert Hefry Trawick not only
leans back in his chair all 'the
time now, he occasionally lets out
with a healthy snore. Donald Lin-
ton hasn't shaved in two weks
because it's "4oo much trouble."
Miss Elkins just comes to
class, gives the pupils some sen-
tences to do, and just lays her
head down and goes to sleep.. We
noted in the office the other day
that Mr. Biggart had a forked
stick to prop up his cigar.
If you think this is 'bad, just take
note of this: the girls practically
have to be carried to class.
Despite the spring fever, the
juniors made a success of their
play. Miss Nix is divulging no
secrets, she just says they have
sufficient funds to give the seniors
a bang-up banquet.

"The public's attention is dallea
to the necessity of giving emer-
gency aid to the wives, children
and other relatives of those re-
maining in service and those who
have been discharged. Red Cross
right here in Gulf county 'has
loaned, and granted thousands ot
dollars for emergency operations.
WArithowit this aid the only recourse
would have been for the man In
service to have written home and
asked someone 'to start a petition
and try to raise money so that his
wife or mother, or child might re-

could hbe made up at once. It is
up to Gulf county to decide."
Readers of The Star are urged
to consider closely the statements
of Mr. Costin and Mr. Carter and
do something about this situation,
for Gulf county must not fall down
at the very end of the emergency
and, tarnish a record that is some-
thing to be proud of.
