'Christmas Call In Person
As Guest of Jaycees
NORTH POLE. Dec. 18-(Exclu-
sive to The Star)-Squelching ru-
mors spread by gloom-faced de-
presisionists that there. would be no
Christmas in Port St. Joe this year,
Santa W. Claus, local toy factory
proprietor and purveyor of Yuletide
cheer, started that he would find
time to stop off in Port St. Joe at
3:00 p. m. Christmas Eve on a pre-
Chlristmas world' tour and at that
time would, be the guest .of the
Junior Chamlbe.r of Commerce.
The colorful patron, saint of the
Yuletide, who has been an annual
visitor in this district for more than
a hundred years, has been exercis-
ing his six teams of reindeer just
in case his huge plane refuses to
function, due to the cold weather.
"We've spent the better part of
eleven months getting ready for
this trip to Port St. Joe," Santa (as'
he is affectionately called by mil-
lions of friends) said in his state-
ment, "and we're going to see to
it that no kiddies are overlooked."
Claus stated he looks forward to
his 'almFiu-t-thip ,icn.1 will bea anxious
to see how all -ii.- old chimnies are.
He warn's that any presents that
may have arrived before Christ-
mas should, not be opened until the

We Hate To Turn 'Em
Down, But We Have To
We've, been turning down adver-
tising-the lifeblood of any paper-
for several months past due to the
fact that we don't know when we'
will get another shipment of news-
print. It hurts, because ad-
verti'sing is what makes the wheels
go 'round. The. past few weeks we
could' have issued 12 and 16-page
papers had we been assured. of a
newsprint supply, but right now we
have six weeks' supply on hand and
when that is gone, unless 'we pick
up some, you may miss an issue or
two of The Star.
We apologize to those concerns
we've had to-turn down on adver-
tising, 'but for weeks past our ad-
vertising space has been sold out
as far as two weeks in advance-
it's, first come, first served.

Don't Use Electricity To

"Heat your home with oil or

of the Florida Power Corporation.
(And that really should ibe good
news to Jimmy Greer and Aubrey
Tomlinson, who deliver kerosene
by truck). Rich pointed out that
the extensive use 02, electric heat-
ere during cold anaps was playing

it may result in the overloading of
transformers in various parts of the
city,' causing them to burn up and

area. (Yeah, Alex Young, wnen 'he

ning hours, will help prevent ai
breakdown in the service to Port
St. Joe which would be a serious
inconvenience to them and their
neighbors," Porter emphasized. .

We read in the newspapers of

alike to help these unfortunates.

Unhappily, however, the price of everything
we buy has increased beyond what might be
called "inflationary trends." For instance, since
1939 the price of fuel oil has increased 167%
poles are UP 111%, copper wire UP 110% and
the price of other necessary materials and
wages of our 1,100 employees have gone UP, too.
Some way must be found to cover a por-.
tion, at least, of today's inflated cost of serv-
ing you and we promise that we shall al-
ways keep electric rates as low as possible,
consistent with good business judgment.

fatal mistake at Pearl Harbor? Then a dollar
was really important money "grocery-wise" .
but not so today. In 1939 the average revenue
from our residential customers was 4.67 cents
per kilowatt hour .. today that price has been
REDUCED 31% and we receive only 3.20
cents per kilowatt hour.

in the family budget that hasn't gone up in price

FORCE OF UMT LOGIC
Universal Military Training, although not
yet the law of the land, already is piling up
one championship record. That is its record
of the conversion of open minds. Its almost
100 per cent.
The editor of The Star has long been an ad-
vocate of universal military training, and in-
dividuals and groups alike who take thle time
and trouble to make a fair study of UMT end
up by accepting its logic. That doesn't mean
they come up infatuated with it. They may not
like it. Nobody loves UMT, not even its fore-
most advocate, the Amnerican Legion. But
everybody is sold on UMT who gives it an hon-
est hearing. The selling is on its necessity
and advisability as a national protection mea-
sure in an age of scientific warfare.
Honest scrutiny of UMT brings conviction.
that this is the most practical, least expensive
and most democratic preparedness plan for
future national security that has yet been pro-
The postwar military planning committee
of the house went into its study of UMT cold,
come up after a three-year research with a
unanimous recommendation to congress for
the adoption of this training program. The
president's advisory commission on universal
training was divided on UMT when it began '
its study. It reported unanimously in favor of
UMT. The same was true of the house com-
mittee on the armed services, which reported
favorably, without a dissenting vote. on the

lore the 80th congress.

No Duck Stamp Needed
To Hunt Doves In State
A 'state hunting license is the
only permit needed to hunt doves
in Florida, says Ben Morgan of the
state game and fresh water J'isl
Ben sez that .because both doves
and ducks are migratory birds and
under federal juristdictioni. many
dove hunters be-lieve it is necessary
to have a federal duck stamp.
"That is incorrect," quoth Ben to
The Star via mimeograph out of
Tallahassee, "duck stamps are
necessary for hunting waterfowl
only-naturally, this does not in-
cide game wardens. Although dove
are- migratory birds, a state 0or
county hunting license is the. only
abilityy in regard to UMT. They should indi-
vitdually take time out to. study the measure.
If every senator and every congressman ex-
po.nse himself to the logic of UMNT between
now and the time it comes up for action, there
will be few votes cast against this vital se-

Making Steel Rails
The original process of making
steel rails was invented by Sir ,Hen-
ry Bessemer, England, and perfect-
ed by A. L. Holley, an American.
Sir Henry was a gunsmith before
making steel rails. He obtained his
original patents in 1855. Holley
bought the Bessemer patents in 1863
and had his improved process pat-
ented in 1865. Their inventions pro-
duced a steel rail with a life several
times greater than that of iron rail.
The open-hearth process, developed
by William and Frederick Siemens
of Germany and improved by Sam-
uel T. Wellman, an American, has
largely replaced the Bessemer and
