PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1947
Sharks Lose To Tot Dashes In
Walton Braves Front of Car and
In Hard Battle %
Outplay Visitors, But Lose 18 to 0:
In Final Frames; Play At
After outplaying the Walton high
Braves of DeFunia.k Springs for
two and a half quarters last Fri-
day night at Centennial Field, the
St. Joe Sharks gave way in the
final quarter and a hall' to drop the
game to the visitors 18-0.
The local lad's took the offensive
from the start of the game and
moved deep into Walton territory
where they stayed for the entire
first half, but were never able to
muster sufficient drive to push the
'pigskin over the goal line. Greatest
part of the Sharks' gains ,were
made by Jack Ricketson and Buster
The Braves scored their first
touchdown in the last of the third
period on a Shark fumble on the
St. Joe 20-yard line, taking five
plays to carry the ball to the three-
yard line, from. where it was taken
over 'by Co-Captain Langford. The
kick for extra point failed.
In the final quarter, Walton took
over at midfield to march to the
five-yard stripe from where White
bucked over for the second score.
Try for point again failed. A few
minutes later White took a punt
by Ricketson on his own 20-yard
line and ran the ball back 80 yaroa
to score standing up. The conver-
sion failed. .
Praise of tue *~ il.' Sharks w9s
voiced by Tommy Smith, sports
writer tfor the Panama City News-
Herald, who said: "The Port St.
Joe Sharks are a team to be ad-
mired this year, and the spirit of
the school one that can well be
copied. The school has never had a
team before that would rate with
the best and has been considered a
'breather' on the schedules of most

Plans New Tax Fight
The Florila League of Municipali-
ties, in session at St. Petersburg,
voted Tuesday to hold a special
meeting this winter to draw up a
definite legislative program after
repeated demands from the floor
from small city officials .who want
their interests represented at the
1949 legislature. Cities in each
legislative district are to press can-
didates for comanitnments to support
a program of aid to municipalities.
The league called on the state to
release more sources of revenue to
the cities, but failed to specify any
particular sources. One resolution
asked the state to "vacate certain
sources of revenue' to the cities,
and to give them at least 50 per
cent of any new sourcees. Appar-
ently the state was to decide what
sources it could ,best vacate.

Biggest Hunting Season In
History Is Seen for Florida
The editor of The Star hadn't re
ceived any news of hunters bring
ing in their limits as we went to
press yesterday afternoon, nor hac
we been the recipient of a mess of
squirrels or a deer steak, but ac
cording to the state game and fresh
water commission, Florida is 01
the way to its biggest hunting sea-
son in history.
The commission predicts that ai
least 120,00(thunters will take to the
field this season (and we're safe ifn
saying that at least 1000 of these
,vill hb in Gulf county) as corn
pared to slightly over 100.000 last
This prediction is based on the
advance sale of hunting licenses
reports from county judges and
spot checks among sportsmen'!
-lubs and amnuuniion distributors
The sharp increase in hunting ac
tiviity is based on the fact thai
,there is more game this year, and
the people know it, so they'll buy
more licenses to hunt it. In addi.
Lion, the average work week is get
ting shorter, giving the working
man more time to hunt than lie has
ever had. And another thing, there
are more women taking to thin
woods-in quest of game, we mean
A f.aw years ago a woman hunte
was a novelty (and something tL
steer clear of, as no one could tel
where she'd shoot), but this season
there will be thousands of fema:e
ninmrods urged on by the .scent o
powder (gunpowder, we mean).
'But what is considered the big
gest cause for increased hunting
pressure is the fact that the army
taught thousands of boys to shoo
who otherwise would have gon.
through life without touching
gun. They'll be out there trying
out their new-found ability on deer
quail, turkey and other game.

State's Growth Presents
Problems of Expansion
As Well As Advantages
The astonishing growth of Flor-
ida since 1930, and particularly In
the last decade, is evidenced in all
phases of the state's economy, pre-
*senting problems of expansion as
well as advantages, according to
th.e Florida State Chamber of Com-
Most significant is a 57 per cent
increase hi the permanent popula-
tion of Florida since 1930 to date;
21 per cent of this increase occur-
ring since 1940.
With this rapid growth In popu-
lation have come proportionately
expanded demands on the state's
physical plant living and recrea-
tional accommodations, transporta-
tion and communication facilities,
Other growth indicators since '40
show an increase in income to in-
dividuals in Florida of 163%; in
-bank deposits of 338%; domestic
electric customers 50%; gross pos-
tal receipts 130%; life insura-nce
sales 92%; residential telephones
61%; business telephones 31%';
passenger car registrations 17%,
and truck and tractor registrations
A current gauge to the state-,
growth. is shown in a contract-let
volume of construction of $167,557,-
000 during the first 10 months of
this year. Of this amount $91,830,-
000 was for private building, $8,-
568,000 for Industrial includingg
private utilities), $45,522,000 for
public building (city, county, fed-
eral, schools), $11,324,000 for roads,
streets and bridges, and $10,643,000
for public engineering. ,

Shortage of Ore Seen
It has been estimated that the
high-grade ore deposits of the Lake
Superior area will be exhausted
within 20 to 25 years, based upon
probable annual requirements of
from 60 to 70 million tons of iron
ore from that area. Average nor-
mal yearly consumption of iron ore
from all areas should be around 90
million tons. Some increased ship-
ments of iron ore from the north-
eastern states, South America, Can-

slightly ease the demands upon the

Our Country Right or Wrong
The recent British municipal elections, in
which the Conservative party made startling
gains and the Labor party suffered equally
.startling losses, may indicate a sharp.change
in the attitude of the rank and file of English
people toward the principles of socialism.
This reverse was due to the fact that legions
of British voters have come to the conclusion
that socialism has failed to live up to the claims
made for it, that socialism is sapping the re-
sources and energies of the nation at an alarm-
ing rate, and that, under a government which
puts the attainment of a complete socialist
state before any other consideration, the sac-
rifices of austerity are in vain.
If that is becoming the British point of
view, it is built solidly upon logic. Britain has.
socialized her vital coal industry-and produc-
tion is much less than under private owner-
ship. She has socialized the Bank of England
and other instruments of domestic and inter-
national finance-arid her economic position
worsens daily. She is threatening to socialize
electric power and other basic enterprises-
and this has caused widespread fear and un-
certainty which have contributed to her eco-
nomic doldrums. The Labor government has
created an enormous, self-seeking bureaucracy
which has strangledEnglish enterprise in red
tape and mountains bf regulations, and it has
been guilty of monumetal failures in the ad-
mninistration of British affairs at home and
abroad. ,, : .
If, as the elections indicate, a subst:fhtial
proportion of the British people are weary of
socialism and regimentation, it is a splendid
object lesson for the United States.
It's easy enough to sow wild oats; harvest-
ing the crop is what makes you hump-backed.

AN OATH REQUIRED
In saying that he might not vote for the
Democratic nominee for president next year,
Attorney General J. Tom Watson either ig-
nored or forgot the statutory requirement for
candidates in a Florida Democratic primary.
Under the law, a candidate who applies for
qualification as a candidate for the party nomi-
nation for any office in this state must swear
to and sign two oaths-first, that he voted for
all the Demuocratic nominees, national, state
and local, in the next preceding general elec-
tion: second (and this is the one which will
apply to Tomn Watson), that he pledges Iim-
self to vote, in the next ensuing general elec-
tion. ftor all the nominees of the Democratic
part national, state and local.
If Tom iWatson qualifies as a candidate for
the Democratic nomination for governor next
year, he will be compelled to swear to and sign
that pledge, which has the legal significan,-
of an oathi. If lie does--and lie can't get on the
primary ticket unless he does-he will be in
honor bound to vote for the Democratic nomi-
nee for president in November 1948.-who will
certainly be Harry S. Truman.-The Tampa
From what we read in the papers and what
we glean from talking with people on the
streets-of Port St. Joe, we've reached the con-
clusion that no one is getting enough money
for the work lie does, no one is satisfied
with the price he gets for what he produces,
the wages of the other fellow are too tdggone
high and the price of everything is all out ofr
Looks to us like everybody is out to get
all the traffic will stand. If a guy can get mor,
for a day's work than the work is worth, he
grabs it. Can't blame him much, and you'd
hardly expect him to say that he's being'paid
more than he's worth for the work he's doing.
We all want higher wages and large profits,
but we kick like a steer about the other fellow
getting them when his gain takes something
"Feed me, clothe me, finance me, or I'll go
Communistic," is the battle cry of those na-
tions of the world who -have taken the easy
course and made little effort to bring about
an economic recovery following the war. To
us it borders on the command of a stick-up
man: "Give me your money or I'll snoort."--

Veteran Homestead Act
Is Designed As Aid To
The American Legion is muster-
ing its full legislative strength be-
hind its Veterans.' Homestead Act
of 1948 for its speedy enactment
by the 80th congress.
To assure a high legislative cal-
endar position for this' measure,
Legion leaders had it in the con-
gressional hopper last Monday, the
opening day of the special session.
Upon the framework of this pro-
posed new federal legislation, the
Legion is building its entire veter-
ans' housing program .designed to
provide rental apartments or owner
homes at a cost that modest income
GI families can afford.
The act would facilitate group
buying and building by the veter-
ans themselves in co-operative pro-
jects with a minimum cash outlay
of $100 per family, and effectuate
a saving o' at leas-t 20 per cent
over current monthly rental or
amortization levels in payments.
"The objective of the American
Legion is .to secure through this
proposed homestead, act the de-
velopment of low cost housing
within the current economic level
of present-day prices," Commander
Vic Anderson of Willi-, V. Rowan
Post 116 explained. "The new legis-
lation will have the advantage of
aiding veterans of World War II tools."
