tha Jean Hammock and Sonjia
Talley. Then, heads proudly erect,
came their majesties, King John
Miller and Queen Patti Brooks, fol-
lowed by the crown bearers, Jerry
Weeks and Eleanor Wood.

Sharks Will Meet
Strength of Invaders, Unknown, But
Past Games Indicate Good Tilt
The St. Joe Sharks return to Cen-
tennial Field tonight for "a gridiron
clash with the Carrabelle Mullets
at 8 o'clock.
The locals have won their last
two games and currently have a
record of three won and three lost.
Nothing is known of Carrabelle's
strength. however, past games indi-
cate a hard-fought contest.
Coach Marion Craig reports that
the Sharks are in top physical con-
dition and are ready for the visi-
tors. The starting backfield of Chat-
ham, Owens, Whitehead and Flenm-
ing did not see much action, as a
unit, last week, and should be ready/
for a "T" party tonight.
The line play has improved, ac-
cording to Craig, and better block-
ing 'and tackling is expected at the
game tonight. Bull O'Brien, Carl-
ton Padgett, Ted Beard, Henry Col-
lier, Charles Wilson, Gene Chism
and Ray Lawrence are the heavy
duty boys in the Shark attack.

Business Booming As Purchasing
Public Catches On To
With the inauguration last Fri-
day by the St. Joe Retail Mer-
chants Association of a novel plan
to turn back part of their profits
to those who do business with them
in the way of a big cash distribu-
tion Christmas Eve, business has
taken an upswing in Port St. Joe,
and those business establishments
participating in the plan are jubi-
lant over the apparent success of
the idea after but a week.
In order to take home possibly
$500, $200, $50 or $25, all you have
to do is pay cash for what you buy
between now -and Christmas, or
make payments on account. There
are no strings attached, and you do
not have to be at any particular
spot on Christmas Eve .at 4 p. m.
when the awards are made.
If you have not already entered
.this big $1000 marathon (and who,
we ask, hasn't?) then just go to

County Goes Democratic, But For Who,
By How Much and Why, We Don't Know
St. Joe Sharks Rout
Score In Every Quarter To Down
The St. Joe Sharks scored in each
and every period last Friday at
Marianna to take the Chattahoo-
chee Indians down the line 50 to 0.
The game was originally scheduled
for Chattahoochee, but was moved
to Marianna due to the fact that
the Indian's gridiron had not been
Billy Fleming and Buster Owens-
in the first quarter wrecked any
hopes the Indians may have had
for victory. Fleming handled the
ball only twice in the entire game
and raced for touchdowns on both
occasions, while Owens took the
pigskin for a 60-yard jaunt over the
The Sharks chalked up two more
in the second period when Owens
tossed to Lawrence for 20 yards
and Tommy Simpson plunged over
center for the second.
Owens' 55-yard run in the third
was the only tally in that period.
However, he opened up the final
quarter with his fourth touchdown
lope, going 20 yards for the score,
and finished up the Sharks' scoring
with a 52-yard canter across the
St. Joe backs piled up 474 yards
rushing and made 90 yards through
the air, for a total of 17 first downs.
The Indians picked up 156 yards on
the turf and another 28 yards via
the aerial route, adding up to 12
first downs. However, a check in-
dicates that most of the Indians'
yardage came against Shark sub-
stitutes and not the first string.

Poll Officials Lock Up Re-
sults In Ballot Boxes; Fire
District Is Okehed
Due to the fact that those who
conducted the polls in Tuesday's
election locked up all records in
the ballot boxes when they returned
them to the office of the county
judge, we are unable to give our
readers a thing in the way of fig-
ures for the various precincts.-
We usually get our information
from Judge Earl Pridgeon, but yes-
terday he was as much in the dark
as us, but he did inform us that
-checks on the various precincts be-
fore the counting was finished had
revealed that the county would go
overwhelmingly for President Tru-
man and in the governor's race for
Fuller Warren. .He also stated that
the county fire control measure h'ad
Little information is available in
daily papers crossing the editorial
desk, except that Amendment No.
1, the controversial gas tax amend-
ment, and Amendment No. 2 were
being rejected all over the state by
approximately two to one. Fate of
the remaining nine amendments is
still in the dark as far as we can
We -don't have to tell you the re-
sults of the presidential race, for
that was available to everybody by
radio Wednesday morning. How-
ever, for the benefit of anyone who
might read this issue of The Star a
hundred years from now, we'd lie
to say that Truman's overwhelming
victory really upset the predictions
and made monkeys out of Mr. Gal-
lop and Mr. Roper, who conducted
national polls which indicated Tom
Dewey as the champ. We imagine
future polls by these two gentle-
men will be complete flops, as they
will be laughed out of business. A
similar poll conducted in 1932 by
the Literary Digest and which back-
fired, caused that magazine to fold
In Florida, of 1268 of the state's
1523 precincts reporting, Truman
received 243,762 votes, Dewey 172,-
983, J. Strom Thurmond.77,002, and
Hank Wallace 11,287.
Almost as big a shock to the ex-
perts was the recapture of both the
house and senate by the Demo-
crats. The 81st congress will be
Democratic predominantly, headed
by a Democratic administration in
the White House.
That's all we have for you, folks.
Mebbe by next week we'll have the
complete county returns.

Adds New Models
Utility Wagon, 6-Cylinder Sta-
tion Wagon, 4-Wheel Drive
Station Wagon Announced
Three new automobile models
have been announced by the \Villys-
Overland Motor Company, being a
four-wheel drive station wagon, a
six-cylinder station wagon, and a
Tooling is completed and the
models have been entered in pro-
duction schedules, according toHil-
ton Lewis of the M. G. Lewis &
Sons Garage, local distributors.
Similar in exterior appearance to
the Jeep station wagon, the new
vehicles contain numerous interior
changes to broaden the versatility
of the Willys-Overland line.
The four-wheel drive station wa-
gon, first produced last spring on a
special army order, is being made
available to the civilian market in
response to a steady stream of in-
quiries indicating the need for such
a vehicle, Lewis said.
The utility wagon is a simplified
version of the station wagon, with
all seats but the driver's removed,
and without the overdrive, which is
standard equipment on the station
The six-cylinder station wagon, is
powered by the new Willys-Over-
land engine which has been road
tested and proven in the station se-
dan. The engine is rated at 70 h. p.
"Introduction of the new vehicles
again demonstrates the broad range
afforded by the Willys-Overland
line by the high degree of inter-
changeability incorporated in its
design," Lewis said. He pointed out
that the Willys-Overland line now
consists of 10. different models.

Our Country f-"-.' Right or Wrong
COMES THE SEASON OF THE YEAR
Residents of Port St. Joe and Gulf county love
their hunting season-and why shouldn't they?
The variety and abundance of game in Gulf
county offers a challenge which every hunter in
this section is eager to meet.
The hunting season officially opens on No-
vember 20 and hunters are asked to observe
strictly the bag limits for the reason that by ob-
servance of our game laws by everyone, there
will be plenty of good hunting for all, and if the
bag Imits are observed, this happy state of af-
fairs will continue through the years to come.
Those who in their enthusiasm for the sport
of hunting violate the bag limits or disregard the
game conservation laws will surely destroy the
thing they love if they continue such practices
It is the duty of every sportsman to protect
the game fields by observing the law himself
and by reporting any game law violations he
may observe. In this way, and in this way only,
will there continue to be game in plenty in Gulf
county and a field for the hunter to shoot over.
.A couple of weeks ago we had a small hole
to fill on page nine, and did so with the follow-
ing: "Wallace Finlay, publisher of the County
Record at Blountstown, was a visitor in town
Monday. He was a visitor at The Star office and
gave us his usual line. If we were as big and
husky and ugly as Wallace and had the soft bu-
reaucratic job he's got, we wouldn't have a care
in the world." So, heaping coals of fire upon our
head, Wallace last week in his paper replied:
"Note to Smith of-St. Joe's Star: You aren't kid-
ding when you say what you say about ribbing,
are you? I must not have told you about the 16
hour day I _usually put in. Incidentally, The Star
is one of the most readable of West Florida's
weeklies. It is a one-man show, too. This compli-
ment is directed at that man, and it is sincere, no
part of a line. (How is that for coals of fire,
Smitty?)" You win, Wallace. Your words are
as the voice of the siren, you have the classic
features of a Greek god, the build of a Hercules,
and you conduct your job with the zeal of a pa-
triot and the wisdom of a Solmon, giving your
all for the benefit of downtrodden humanity,
even though it wreck your health, cause your
hair to fall out and create dissension between
you and your wife. We bow our head in shame
for the uncouth remarks we made regarding your
verbosity, your physiognomy and your torso.

NAILING DOWN A 'SPECIAL PRIVILEGE'
Millions of Americans went to the polls Tues-
day to elect the candidates of their choice. When
a man can "elect" to do this or that, he is a free
man. A man has a sense of dignity, of worth, of
self-respect-a state of wellbeing money cannot
buy-when he can elect to speak out, or to write,
for or against someone or something.
This freedom of "election" has been banished
from the public policy of nation after nation.
Everywhere today, man, the individual, is sub-
mitting to various degrees of enslavement thru
regimentation. Minority's voice is silent, free
discussion gone, one's own life is directed in its
most intimate details, the right to elect, to
choose-these inalienable rights are denied mil-
lions upon millions of men and women today.
"Election" by the individual has always had
to fight for its life. The real issue is not out in
the open. No ambitious ruler ever announces
that he is taking something away from the indi-
vidual. He promises much. He presents a bar-
gain. He does not disclose his hand. He never
shows the price tag. No dictator ever described
himself as a dictator, as bent upon destroying
man's freedom of choice. He has a "Plan," a five-
year plan or a ten-year plan. He does not tell
the people a simple truth, which they should
know for themselves-that every economic plan
to be successful means they must be moulded
Discipline and compiulsion-the antithesis of
freedom-is written large on the back of every
blueprint of political planners. Such plans are
full of "musts." "Must" is the first word in the
vocabulary of a dictator; it is repugnant to a free
American like you and I.
We have chosen our president by the votes of
a majority. The highest attribute of a free man
,is that freedom to exercise his choice at the bal-
lot box. This right to elect causes the American
to walk with a swing such as is seen on not many
highways of the world, makes him grovel before
no one, stand in awe of no man. The ballot box
makes him a peer, in fact, a free man. As a free
man, he can every so often choose his political
servant, can elect the agent to represent him and
his views. He can repudiate and renounce his
representative democracy and can set up instead
a monarchy, communism, or indeed, a dictator-
ship. He can abolish courts and institute a Star
Chamber. He can vote away every vestige of law
and order and duty and restraint. He can vote
himself out as master and make his political
servant his divine ruler. He thus whittles away
his freedom of choice.
By the same token he can, through his intelli-
genqe and vigilance, preserve it for himself and
Truman's proposed socialized medicine pro-
gram is meeting with a quite a bit of opposition.
Harry probably feels that any administration
that has made the people as sick as his has,
should certainly furnish them free medicine.
Observing the average person's handwriting
(including our own), we have come to the con-
clision that the most benificent invention in
world history was the typewriter.

and Onnie LeHardy gave a tap
dance number. E. Clay Lewis Jr.,
then gave a short talk on the school

Home Demonstration Club
Studies Interior Decorating
The White City Home Demon-
stration Club met Tuesday of last
week at the community building
with eight members present.
Mrs. Wilma Revell, the home
demonstration agent, led a discus-
sion on interior decorating, stress-
ing color schemes. She then gave
a fascinating demonstration on the
art of etching glass, taking an in-
expensive water pitcher and trans-
forming it into a beautiful piece of
glassware. This work can be done
on glasses, fish bowls, ash trays or
any smooth glass surface. This was
very interesting to the ladies, due
to the problem of Christmas gifts
just around the corner.
The club is happy to announce
that the roof on the community
building has been completed, and
desires to thank the people of
White City and surrounding com-
munities for their splendid co-oper-
ation through their donations and
participation in the various activi-
ties sponsored by the club in order
to finance this project.

Come in, see the car that's years
ahead-drive the New Hudson-
experience the amazing roadability,
comfort and safety of the only car
you step down into!
Here's your chance to get the thrill of
a real discovery-to see and feel what'
one of the great advances in motor-car
history offers you.
You'll see a Hudson of distinguished,
streamlined beauty and low-built sil-
houette that is instantly recognizable
because it is the natural result of a basi-
cally new design principle-a principle
that puts this car so far ahead it is a
protected investment in motor-car value!
The key to this new design principle is
a recessed floor. The New Hudson is the
'only car you step doi'n into!
By using a "step-down" zone in an exclu-
sive. all steel Monobilt Body-and-frame*,
Hiudson achieves the lowest car on the
highway-only five feet from ground to
top-while maintaining more head room
than in any mass-produced car built today!
But no amount of looking at this amaz-
ing car-beautiful as it is-can equal the
thrill of a Hudson ride! And you are
invited to enjoy that ride today!
Hudson has a smooth, hug-the-road way
of going in cross-winds and on every con-
ceivable kind of highway. When you see
the way it takes even the sharpest curves,
you'll know once' again that this car has
"The modern design for '49"--and for
years to come!
Hudson's remarkable ride is largely due
to the fact that its "step-down" design
provides the lowest center of gravity in
any American stock car-yet road clear-
ance is ample! It is a widely recognized
fact that the lower to the ground a car
can be built, the more stability it will
have and the safer it will be.
You sense a delightful conformity to the
road the minute you begin your ride,
and this stability, plus the protection of
riding encircled by a sturdy box-section
steel frame, is a grand experience in
serene, safe well-being.
This grand feeling is further heightened
by the remarkable ease with which this
car is controlled. 'You enjoy
this generous roo:niness in corn- 1
plete relaxation a.s the New
Iludson glides smoothly along.
We cordially iuvite you to see
and drive the New Hlidson, to
thoroughly enjoy the ride that
comes only with "The modern ,
design for '49!"
HUDSON FLOORS are recessed down within the frame (as shown
above), seats are lowered, so you get, more than ample head'
room in this car with the new, lower center of gravity.
YOU RIDE DOWN within a base frame (as shown above)',.
and rear seals are positioned ahead of the rear wheels so that
full body width becomes available for wonderfullyjoomy seats.

Sure For Six
Members of Congress Are Due
To Move Upward On
The shift of party control in the
Slst congress will give Florida
members unprecedented power in
committees, a survey shows.
Senator Claude Pepper, consist-
ent foe of the Taft-Hartley labor
act, will wield powerful influence
as chairman of a senate labor and
public welfare subcommittee. He
will be second ranking member of
the full committee, and he will also
move up to sixth place oni the sen-
ate agriculture committee.
Senator Spessard L. Holland, who
is midway in his first term, will be-
come ranking member of the sen-
ate district committee and possibly
its chairman. But he will assume
a more important position as third
ranking member of the senate pub-
lic works committee. In the latter
assignment he will have consider-
able say on matters pertaining to
Florida flood control.
On the house side, Representa-
tive Bob Sikes of Crestview will
become the sixth ranking member
of the house armed services com-
mittee and likely a subcommittee
chairman of this important group.
Rep. George A. Smathers of Mi-
ami. unless he seeks other com-
mittee assignment, will be the
sixth ranking member of the house
Rep. Dwight L. Rogers of Fort
Lauderdale will be eighth ranking
member of the important house in-
terstate and foreign commerce,com-
Rep. J. Hardin Peterson of Lake-
land will become ranking member
of the house public lands commit-
tee and a sure-shot for a subcom-
mittee chairmanship. At the same
time he will be the second ranking
member of the house un-Anmerican
The two new members of conr-
gress from Florida, Representa-
tives Charles E. Bennett of Jack-
sonville and Sid Herlong of. Lees-
burg, will receive their committee
assignments at the beginning of

The man in your U. S. Army and

representative of the biggest-and
most important business in the
world. He's qualified and competent
to hold this job because he's speci-

to guide young men in choosing a
career. Why is it necessary for the
recruiter to have such high stan-
dards of training and experience?
