The Loyal 0-rder of Moose of
Portl St. Joe are planning a big
time for Armistice Day, November

-er-and a big barbecue, to both of
which events the public is invited.
A large crowd is expected to at-
ten.d both events, including expert
marksmen who will be expecting to
take home a fat gobbler or two.
A large number of people from sur-
'ounding cities will also be pres-

It is. pointed out by local Moose
(or is it Mice?) that while this is
not the first barbecue inor turkey

ARMISTICE DAY DUTY
America's best observance of Armistice Day next Tues-
cia will be a renewed determination that this peace shall
not be lost by moral inertia and lack of vision. We have
a covenant to keep with the heroic dead of World Wars I
and II. If we are to prove in any wise worthy of them,
\ve must see to it with all the strength of our national will
that their courage and devotion shall not have been in
vain. Theirs was the task of saving freedom and justice
from a brutal foe; ours the duty of establishing a world
order in which those vital values will be secure and in
which it will not be necessary to sacrifice the flower of
our young manhood generation after generation.
The Armistice of 29 years ago turned out to be merely
a lull between two tragic storms. It would have been
otherwise had we then been vigilant and true to the ideals
for which our boys fought and died. Instead, we as a peo-
ple lapsed into indifference, forsook statesmanly leader-
ship and left a supreme issue to blind and quibbling poli-
ticians. So we lost the peace which had been so bravely
won and foredoomed ourselves to another and more tragic
world war. Have we learned our lesson? The signs
of the hour would seem to so indicate, but loyalty to the
dead and the living alike bids us be watchful and resolute
to the end.-

Main Causes; St. Joseph Bay
Indicated As Polluted
With the large increase of popu-

Florida, stream pollution has be-
co.m.e an acute health, economic
and welfare hazard, according to the
current issue of the state board of
health's official publication, "Flor-

The entire issue of the publica-

help that is needed to correct the
David, B. Lee, chief sanitary en-
gineer for the state health depart-
ment, points o&tt that pollution will
increase unless, further steps are
taken to control the wastes caused
by such progress. "Our public
drinking water supplies are becon.
ing grossly polluted," he stated,
"our recreation facilities are being
diminished, and our shellfish-grow-
ing areas are being eliminated."
The publication goes, on to state
that less than half the people in
Florida have domestic water avail-
able that ha's been treated in' any
way, and as a c sequence "over '
mIillion Flor id~l'' consume un-
treated ground, water."
Regarding the big need for sewer-
age treatment and disposal, the pub-
lication declares that "nearly every
community of any size has failed to
provide itself with adequate faciii-
ties for disposal of domestic sexw-
I .A. gaI bage and, rubish. In many
cases, storm sewerage is. conspicu-
ous by its absence."
As a direct result of the daily
discharge of millions and- millions
of gallons of raw or inadequately
treated sewerage anid industrial
wastes, 232 square miles of com-
mercial shellfish-growing beds have
been condemned by the state board

The Independent-Herald (Yuba City, Calif.) :
"There is something frightening about Pres!-
dent Truman's appeal for food conservation
through self-denial, if we take -the request
seriously. In a country so abundant in produc-
tivity that we can dump produce by the thou-
sands of tons simply to keep it off the market,
where we can recklessly destroy pur resources
in a thousand ways, it' is strange that the presi-
dent must ask for conservation."
The I lerald (Burr Oak, Kan.) : "All the
stories about food shortages in Europe are be-
ginning to sound a bit thin. In two. years they
should be able to raise a part of the food they
need. This country should be given a chance to
recover from the same war."

The Low Down
Editor The Star:
Well, folkses, thee here latest
new kinda days-"no chicaens oi
Thursday," "no meet on Tuesday,'"
etc.-they give me a idea fer an-
uther new kinda day. Me abbe it kin
be squeezed in 'sonewheres and
will ketch on. I'am calling' it "no
chaos dcay." On that day it'll be
quiet-nolbuddy'll break out in a
lather that sunipin's gotta be dun
afore sundown or deesaster will'
overtake us. If there's one thing in
this land-of-the-4free that we has
more of, but which don't seem wo
be crampii1' our style too much, it's
"threatened chaos." Chaos is a-,
hangin' over our head like a hawk
over the barnyard.
Folks go to bedi feerful of what'll
be on the radeeo at 7 next morning .
Stummick urcers and irritated dis-
positions cunm next. And enybuddy
thinking' that stumniick ulcers ain't
our national afiflickshun, let him
hesitate fo'r one halt a second at a
red stoplight. The horn toots fruni
behind will tell him.
My new "No Chaos Day," iffen
we could arrange to have it fall on
eleckshun day, I kinda bigger the
quietness mite help. Enybuddy no,
endorsing' this idee, he mite drop
in to see Doc Norton or Doc War,"
-2 to 1 it's hi's stuninick. ,

Monks on Guernsey Island
Guernsey, island, used as a base
for pirates who preyed on shipping
in the English channel, was given
to the monks of Mount St. Michel
about 960 A. D. to fortify against
sea rovers and to improve condi-
tions. They were to teach the art
of agriculture to the natives who
had been dependent upon fishing
for their livelihood. These Breton
and Norman monks crossed the two
mainland breeds, Norman Brindle
Froment du Leon, to produce Guern-
sey cattle. Isolated on the island
from importation of other cattle, the
monks, by patience, knowledge and
selection, created a superior ani-
Knowledge of Sugar
First clear knowledge to reach the
Western world of sugar as a product
obtainable frdm cultivated plants
was the account brought back to
Europe by the Greek soldiers of
Alexander the Great oi the reed
grown in India for its juice which,
they said, was sweeter than honey.
