"Port St. Joe -The Outlet Port for the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee Valley"
Record Sales for
Gift Distribution and Plenty of
Goods Will Be Real
Storekeepers of Port St. Joe ex-
pect this Christmas season to be
the biggest ever, what with plenty
of goods on hand and the $1000 gift
distribution they are staging' on
For the first time since the war
they'll be making a real bid for
business, since supplies of goods
are better and more varied than
they have been in years, there are
more eye-catching special gift
items, and there is a greater range
of moderate-priced gifts.
Local merchants are stressing
the moderate price levels-since
for several months past the trend
has been for consumers to turn
aside from high priced luxury
items. They realize that the day
has gone when the consumer would
buy a gift no matter what its price.
Competition is back in full force,
and apparently our merchants have
recognized that fact in their selec-
tion of goods. '
A quick trip through a number of
stores shows a wide variety of mod-
erate priced cosmetic kits, toilet
sets and novelties, not to mention
gift packages of cutlery for the kit-
chen. We also noted that the
Christmast-packaged gift sets of
towels, which disappeared during
the war, are again back on the mar-
ket-and notion departments have
everything from casual slippers to
kitchen bowl covers in gift garb.
We saw one item that really
should make a hit with the ladies
(personally, we don't wear 'em). It
was a washable nylon velvet blouse-
brassiere which can be worn as a
blouse for daytime or evening.
We found that generally women
are asking for household goods and
clothing as Christmas gifts, while
men list wearing apparel as their
first choice. Beyond that, women
list jewelry as their third choice,
and automobiles are second in line

Bikes Without Lights
Menace, Says Chief
No motorist wants to run over
a child riding a bicycle, but that's
going to happen eventually, says
Chief of Police Buck Griffin, since
numerous small fry are making a
habit of riding their bikes at night
without proper lights.
"I'm asking parents to see that
their children's bicycles carry some
sort of light," said Griffin. "No one
wants to see their child crippled
for life or killed just for the lack
of one small light. There is no way
to hold the kids responsible, for
they don't think of what might
happen, but I do feel that it is the
responsibility of the parents."

St. Joe Sharks Take
Walton High 33 To 7
Defeat DeFuniakers On Home Field
In Armistice Day Tilt
By .GRAHAM HARVEY
The St. Joe Sharks racked up an-
other grid victory of 33 to 7 over
the mighty and powerful Walton
Braves in a game played in De-
Funiak Springs Thursday night of
last week as part of the Armstice
Day celebration in that city.
The Shaks shoved over the first
counter in the first quarter when
Raymond Lawrence scored and the
zta'ra. point waa f-k-d. by' Buster
Owens. In the second quarter the
Sharks doubled their dose with
Owens and Charles Whitehead
scoring. Try for extra point was
completed on but one.
Coming back in the third round,
Owens scored again with a 70-yard
run and also contributed the extra
point. DeFuniak, fighting back with
immense determination, received
their chance when Hattaway scored
on a kickoff with a 60-yard dash to
pay dirt, plus the extra point.
The Sharks again took the lime-
light in the last quarter, scoring
the final touchdown, with Bill
Fleming as the scoring agent. Try
for extra point was unsuccessful.
The Walton Braves, brave as,
they were, soon realized their lack
of ability to cope with a team com-
posed of Whitehead and Owens,
planning the strategy and seeing
to its fulfillment, and Bull O'Brian
and his capable companions devas-
tating the Walton line. Tommy
Simpson, substituting in numerous
places, and Luther Parrot did ex-
cellent jobs of relief.
The Sharks proved their capabil-
ity by covering 421 yards on the
ground and another 80 by air. The
Braves struggled to cover 151 yards
on the ground and 37 via air.
The Sharks meet the Bonifay
Blue Devils at Centennial Field to-
- night and next Wednesday night
will tangle with the Blountstown

St. Joe Motor Company
Gives Out Safety Book
Working in the interest of a
safer community, the St. Joe Mo-
tor Company this week distributed
1500 comic booklets, "It's Fun To
Stay Alive," to the children of this
city and Wewahitchka. Eight hun-
dred of the books went to the Port
St. Joe schools, 100 to the St. Joe
colored, school, 400 to the Wewa-
hitc'hka schools and the remainder
ta the kindergartens operated by
Mrs. Tom McPhaul and Mrs. Joe
Vic Anderson says there are a
few of the books still available for
those kids who failed to get a copy
of the comic book, and if they will
call at the St. Joe Motor Company
they may have one.
The booklet stresses, through its
comic strips, safety while driving,
safety on the streets, in the home
and in the school.

DEAR SHOPPERS Someone wanted to know why "The
Tattler" tattles less lately. Well, that's easy; the tale has been
told in this space already. We believe that you're more interested
in an honest, down-to-earth Merchandise Value Message than" a
lot of hastily printed words. We would like very much to write a
weekly column (if we could) but we had rather get paid for it
than have to pay. Every time we open our mouth here it's cost
money. Maybe it's better we keep it shut and pass the savings orr
to you that's what we've done, but we are not doing it now!'
We've heard that "Speech is Silver but Silence isGolden"' .
right now words are costly and silence is costless. Watch out,'
though, for one of these days we might bore you apain how-
ever, during the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons we'll try
to be as silently thankful with you as possible. We shall direct
our thoughts, words and actions towards making this the best
Holiday Season you've ever known.

Our Country Right or Wrong
OUR CITIZENS ARE FORWARD-LOOKING
The people of Gulf county are to be congratu-
lated on their forward-looking attitude when
they voted overwhelmingly to join with the na-
tional and state forest services to provide fire
protection for the timberlands of our county.
The forests of Florida support the state's ma-
jor industries. Careful protection of what was
left after the first cut by the early timbermen
and reforestation of the pine lands are funda-
mental necessities to supply raw materials for
Here in Port St. Joe, moreso than in the north
part of the county, our main industries are based
on wood products. The St. Joe Paper Company
mill and the St. Joe Lumber & Export Company
are both dependent upon a balanced forest pro-
gram so that the woods will produce as much as
is taken each year for industrial use.
These industries provide jobs and payrolls
without which the community could not exist.
Furthermore, hundreds, obtain employment in
the woods, in the tapping of trees for rosin, in
cutting for pulpwood and lumber, in planting
seedlings, maintaining fences and fire lanes and
in many other activities.
THE SMOKER'S RESPONSIBILITY
The cigaret you just reached for is more than
a little paper tube filled with tobacco (person-
ally, we smoke cigars). It is a potassium chlor-
ate torch that will burn at a high heat intil it
is consumed to ashes. The chemical is mixed
with the tobacco in order to make it burn.
The significance of this should be clear to
anyone. The apparently harmless cigaret is one
of the greatest menaces to life and property
when carelessly handled. Last year careless
smokers were responsible for 130,000 fires-
many of which caused death, injury and high
property damage. Will the total be greater this
The rules for safe handling of cigarets, and all
other tobacco products, are simple enough. Al-
ways put them out in an ash tray or some other
safe container when you're done with them.
Never throw a burning butt from a car-this par-
ticular type of carelessness has caused some of
the worst forest fires the country has known.
That's one reason the car makers put an ash re-
ceiver in cars. And, above all, don't smoke in
bed. A cigaret will set bedding afire far more
quickly than most of us realize-as many a
smoker has learned to his sorrow. And smoking
in bed has sent a legion of smokers into the here-
So, if you smoke, accept the responsibility that
goes with it-the responsibility to use tobacco
safely, in accordance with the rules.
Next Thursday is Thanksgiving Day again,
and some, surveying the past twelve-month, may
feel they have little for which to be thankful.
Let them compare their estate with that of the
Pilgrims. Let them test their courage and spirit
against the courage and spirit of Governor Brad-
ford and his little company.
After all, there is more to Thanksgiving Day
than a turkey, symbol of plenty, and a digestion-
testing dinner. It is a day of retrospection. An-
other year of adventure and experience has
passed-and here we are!
Surely we are riper in knowledge; surely we,
know ourselves and the world better; surely we
have profited, even though it may have been at
the expense of hard knocks. Rather than the ma-
terial achievement, reckon up the spiritual.
The Pilgrims, that first Thanksgiving Day, were
poorer than they had been in England in goods
of the world, but they had proved they could
make a living in their new country, where they
had the priceless blessing of liberty to think
and speak after their own will. Therefore their
hearts were filled with thankfulness, and they
made light of their hardships.
When we study the, story of that first Thanks-
giving Day, we find in it the holiday's true spirit.
Work faithfully for eight hours a day and don't
worry; then in time you may become boss and
work sixteen hours a day and have all the worry.

Hope To Get More Rivers and
Harbors Cash, Aid to Citrus
Growers, Equalized, Freight
Rates, Boost In Wage Rate.
Florida benefits of great com-
mercial value are seen by Senators
Holland and Pepper from the re-
cent Democratic victory.
Holland thinks the state's grow-
ers finally may get federal funds to
repay their losses from the Medi-
terranean fruit fly infestation of 19
years ago. He and Pepper intro-
duced a bill at the last session to
allot $10,000,000 for the purpose.
Holland also thinks that Florida
will get more rivers and harbors
-monies; that canners will be placed
under a marketing agreement, and
that the South will find less opposi-
tion in its fight for equalized
Pepper said he hoped to achieve
relief for the Florida citrus indus-
try and flood control funds for the
state. Nationally, he saw besides
repeal of the Taft-Hartley act, new
deals in health insurance, a more
liberal social security and higher
Pepper said President Truman
and the Democratic party have
promised a 50 per cent increase in
social security benefits, and he is
,going to work for it. He said he
would try to establish social se-
curity benefits at a minimum fig-
-ure with a view to state participa-
tion, and that he would like to see
the federal government pay each
person $50 a month from the age
of 60, and have states provide
enough to give each person a total
of $100 a month; $200 for man and
wife when both are eligible. "I re-
alize this cannot be done over-
night," Pepper said, "but this is
what I am working toward."
Pepper said he wanted to see an
improvement in the old age and
survivors insurance program and
material and child welfare care,
and that he intended to work for
an increase in the minimum wage
from 40 to 75 cents and for repeal
of the Taft-Hartley law, with a re-
vision of legislation affecting la-
bor and management.
He said he was vitally interested
in a program to bring prosperity
to the citrus industry, and that he
was going to work with the indus-
try and state for price support that
would give the grower at least the
cost of production.

Pictures of Inaugural
Project Under Way To Show Old
Films of Catts Inauguration
A helicopter will soar over the
Fuller Warren inaugural parade at
Tallahassee January 4 with cam-
erailen aboard to record for all
time the procession.
B. A. Cawthon, Florida State
Theaters cameraman, who has ac-
cumulated a movie file of past in-
augurations going as far back as
the late Sidney J. Catts, arranged
the helicopter transportation for
himself and others who will be
aboard. It will fly from Puerto Rico
to Tallahassee for use.
Cawthon, co-ordinator of the pic-
torial division of the inaugural
committee,. is working on a project
which would see a 50-foot screen
erected near the capitol with films
of the Catts inauguration in 1917-
31 years ago-shown first on in-
augural night and then that day's
shots of the Warren inaugural to
follow for comparison.
Catts wore a frock coat at the
inaugural when he took over from
the late Park Trammel. Derby hats
were much in evidence, and the
1917 autos raised plenty of dust as
they passed the capital via a clay
road in front at that time. Horses
and buggies were in profusion, and
many in the parade rode horses.

APALACHICOLA ROOFING AND

W whether the man of the family started out
l lin a tall hat and silver-buckled shoes with a big
scatter-shot or in a natty red hunting jacket
-/ with a high-powered shotgun the results have
always been the same as far as I was concerned
I end up on a platter.
S. the cooks lot has certainly improved,
Mrs. Puritan, back in the days of the early
Thanksgivings, had to put me on a spit in the
fireplace and spend hot, tedious hours turning [i
me around so I'd be done to a golden brown all
over. Today's homemaker, however, doesn't
bother to cook me at all no, she turns the
job over completely to a handy little fellow
named Reddy Kilowatt who lives in her electric r
oven. He handles the job with absolutely no fuss, .I X.3,lifh11, /iI
no muss, and without even heating up the kitchen. ,i i.
Mrs. Electrical Living just puts me in and takes
me out.., and she's so cool and unruffled that
she actually enjoys her own Thanksgiving dinner ii.
right along with her guests! ,
P. S. I understand an electric range does a lot i /
of other things besides roast turkeys, too. It '-" _
broils, fries, bakes, and boils it's cool, clean,
safe, speedy and economical .. It can cook
whole meals automatically. If I were anything 194864
but a poor, unfortunate turkey I'd be very, very
enthusiastic about having' one and I'd go
see my electric appliance dealer about one of
the latest models.
