March of Dimes
Opens 1949 Drive
In County Today
Chairman Campbell Believes Gulf
County Will Set New Record
For Fund This Year
The most crucial March of Dimes
campaign in history opens today in
Gulf county, as well as in all other
sections of the United States. The
1949 appeal for funds to fight in-
fantile paralysis is aimed at enabl-
ing the local chapter to finance the
fight against possible pdlio epi-
demics next summer while at the
same time allowing it to partici-
pate in the various activities of the
National Foundation for Infantile
Paralysis. The campaign continues
through January 31.
"One of the important tasks of
national headquarters." said H. A.
Campbell, local chairman of the
campaign, "is to have on hand
a sufficiently large emergency epi-
demic aid fund to meet the urgent
requirements of areas where polio
flares up during the coming sum-
mer. We know that these epidemics
will come, but we do Abt know
which areas will be affected.
"Last summer the nation suf-
fered one of the most devastating
polio epidemics in its hi-tory, with
approximately 26,000 cases. Local
chapters and national headquarters
were called upon to render aid to
stricken communities in widely
scattered areas Pt g-?,ater cost than
ever before. It was a- challenge
which we met, but in meeting it we
completely exhausted our emergency
Chairman Campbell, who feels
that the people of Gulf county will
exceed the quota set, as they have
in past years, listed two primary
reasons for greater donations than
ever before during the campaign.
On the one hand there is the ever-
present threat of a local infantile
paralysis epidemic, while on the
other is the tremendously high cost
of aftercare for those stricken.
"We have only a few short weeks
now in which to win community
ease-of-mind for the usual four-
months polio period next summer,"
*said Campbell. "We must make
sure that we will -have funds to
,ease the pains of our children next
summer if the dreaded polio visi-
tor comes. Only a successful March
-of Dimes campaign now will assure
that the crippling after-effects, are
held to an absolute minimum. That
is community ease-of-mind."
TWO BASKETBALL GAMES
Cage fans should see a couple of
rip-snorting games next Wednesday

Three Clearance Sales
Offer Many Bargains
Balmy Weather Causes Merchants
To Toss Stocks Overboard
Imagine! You can buy all the
winter clothing you need at about
half price right in the middle of the
winter! This balmy summer
weather we've been having seems
to have driven our local clothiers
balmy, for they are practically giv-
ing away their winter stocks at un-
believably low prices.
Boyles Department Store is of-
fering practically everything in the
store for almost a song, in order to
clear it out for new spring stock.
And Costin's Department Store
likewise is putting the skids under
winter stocks with prices lower
than a snake's belly.
Over at Mouchette's Style Shop,
Miles Hurlbut has taken a pair of
shears and cut ever dress in half
-that is he's cut the price in half.
And while he was at it, lie likewise
halved hats, suits and coats.
Ladies, it will really pay you to
read their ads in this issue of The
Star Read 'em and then go
shopping, for you really have a
great variety to choose from this

Warren Hopes For
Early Passage of
Cattde, Gas kLws
Would Like To See Cattle Fencing
Law Effective By October
1 of This Year
Laws to eliminate livestock from
Florida's highways and lift the gas
tax from fuel used in farm machin-
ery and commercial fishing boats
are the first and second acts Gov-
ernor Warren hopes to see passed
by the 1949 legislature.
He said he thinks livestock own-
ers should be considered negligent
if cars are involved in accidents
because their animals have strayed
on the highways, and added he
would like to see, the cattle fencing
law become effective at least by
October 1 of this year, if not sooner.
The governor said he had dis-
cussed the proposal to relieve boat
owners and farmers of taxes on
gas used in their work with Gover-
nor J. Strom Thurmond of South
Carolina whose state has such a
law. He said Thurmond told him
very little fraud was uncovered in
connection with the act.
Fraud might consist of farmers
and boat owners using the tax-free
gasoline in private automobiles and
other non-exempt vehicles.
Warren said he would like to see
the cattle bill passed first by the
legislature, followed immediately
by the gas tax law.

Our Country Right or Wrong
VOTE AGAINST POLIO
Today marks the opening of an 18-day parade
in Gulf county and the nation-the 1949 March
of Dimes of the National Foundation for Infan-
tile Paralysis. In that little more than two-week
period the American people will write their own
ticket against infantile paralysis, which in the
past six years has stricken more than 100,000 of
One of the main facts to remember about polio
is that it is not primarily a fatal disease. Only
about five to ten persons out of a hundred who
contract it will die. And another fact is that 50
per cent of those infected by polio recover com-
Yet today there remains a drab overtone of
darkness in the infantile paralysis picture. When
polio strikes with paralytic force, often many
lengthy years of hospitalization and treatment
comprise the calendar of the disabled.
Aside from the victim's pain and suffering,
there is also the cold factual problem of a doc-
tor and hospital bills. Not one family in ten can
afford to pay for full or even partial care of a
case requiring more than a nominal hospital stay.
That's where your March of Dimes steps in to
lighten the dark outlook. Besides financing re-
search seeking the final answer of how to pre-
vent and cure polio, March of Dimes funds are
paying for the best available medical care and'
treatment of polio patients throughout the na-
tion whether or not they we;e stricken in
the 1948 epidemics or in years gone by.
Yes, not one family in ten can afford to pay
when polio strikes. But every family can con-
tribute to the March of Dimes. By so doing they
help guarantee prompt and adequate aid to
themselves and their neighbors should the dis-
ease attack them.
Remember the 1949 March of Dimes, January
14 to 31. Join in that great parade and help put
Gulf county over the top. Every time you give a
dime or a dollar you lend a mighty, helping hand.
RUMOR HATH IT--
According to fairly reliable political rumors,
Fuller Warren has his eye on a seat in the U. S.
senate upon completion of his term as governor.
which brings up the question: Who will he at-
tempt to unseat-Pepper or Holland?
We hardly believe it will be Pepper, since he
and Warren are politically allied, and anyway,
as someone recently remarked, Pepper probably
will be in the senate until he dies of old age.
Therefore it must be Senator Holland, since his
term will wind up about the same time as War-
ren's term as governor.
We wouldn't care to predict who would come
out on top of the heap should these two tangle
in the senatorial race, for both are excellent poli-
ticians and both have a strong following in the
Things are really going from bad to worse in

"Tips From Across Our
Counter To Wise
Vol. III Friday, January 14, 1949 No. 23
Been a long time since we've dug
out the head for this column, but
this week we thought we'd dust it
off and make more use of it dur-
ing-1949 than we did during 1948.
. In looking over our back files
we find that for years, week after
week, the Stardust poured fourth
-along with the Moonshine, of
course. But we're getting older now
and, too, since we've no hired help
in the shop, we don't get to go
piruting around the streets as of-
ten as we used to, consequently we
have less data of the type neces-
sary to fill this column.
You all probably noticed that we
had but six pages in this rag last
week. That was caused by a
catch in the editor's back. 'Twas
about all we could do to get from
the couch to the linotype, to the
dinner table, to the linotype to the
couch (boy, that couch really took
a beating last week!) Our
back crik took us New Year's Day
-and we didn't even celebrate the
nighi before! Our wife has been
trying to blame it onto Ed Pridgeon
Jr., who took us fishing on the
Dead Lakes in a cold wind (didn't
get a bite), but Ed says 'twarn't
his fault. Our good frau has
been feeding us some kind of pills
that look like a gob of crude oil
and taste like they contain a mix-
ture of turpentine, kerosene, iodine
and extract of skunk. In addition.
she slapped a big plaster on our
editorial back that was so stiff it
made us sit and stand straight
whether we wanted to or not. We
still complain a bit (it gets us a
lot of extra service on things we
could really do ourselves looks
like this back ailment will be with
us for a considerable spell it's
mighty handy at times).
We've at last found a use for the
neckties we received for Christmas.
Got 'em strung up on a cord back
of our easy chair and they're so
brilliant and flashy that we figure
on saving at least 50 per cent of
our light bill this winter. Our
wife thinks so much of the idea
that she brings in the neighbors to
exclaim in awe and admire our in-
We've got a really proud papa in
town this week-the Rev. Lee Gra-
ham-who has been liassing out
the customary cigars with a free
hand since the arrival of a boy on
January 10. .. To see him strut
and hear him talk, you'd think Mrs.
Graham didn't have a thing to do
Irish Linen -for Money
Irish linen for U. S. bank notes
and U. S. money for Irish linen
sounds like a merry-go-round but
that's the way it is. The U. S. gov-
ernment buys more than 100 tons of
clean linen scraps and remnants
from Belfast each year to be used
in the making of paper money. Then
the American consumer eagerly
spends a part of' that money for
Irish linen towels, table linens, linen
handkerchiefs and dress linens.

this is going to be a good thing for

the Biggest Slap at High Prices
that Boyles has made so far, and
you are well acquainted with the

and we feel like celebrating. We
know of no better way than to

One of our most pleasant and in-
spiring memories is the friendly
spirit you have shown towards this
store since its opening. .. Many
times when we've been feeling a
little low, a friendly, kind remark
from a customer has given us com-
fort and new courage. A day never
passes that does not increase our
Friendship Assets. Operating this
store would be a dull job indeed
without this asset which cannot be
estimated in dollars and cents. It's
comforting to know the most valu-
able things of life come without
cost. Things having the highest
price tag are often most perishable.
The spirit of friendship and good
will will never perish from the
earth. It has no dollar mark be-
fore it. We shall strive diligently
to increase our non-perishable as-
sets this year.

Forest Fire Control
Plan Yet Unsettled
Warren Says If Factions Fail To
Agree He Will Arrange
If factions of the forest industry
at loggerheads over the way to ex-
tend fire control in Florida do not
get together on a program, Gover-
nor Warren says he's going to hand
Warren said he is hopeful they
will reach a compromise and pre-
sent a solid front to the legisla-
ture. If they don't get together on
a plan, he said, "I'm going to get
together with myself and present
The conflict is one of method.
One group wants to continue bring-
ing counties under fire control one
at a time by having local residents
vote on whether to levy a property
tax for contribution to a state and
federal fund for a county-wide fire
control program as the voters of
Gulf county did last November.
The rival school of thought sup-
ports a state-wide law that would
eliminate the local tax but make a
complete fire control program op-
tional with local committees.
Warren said he didn't consider
forest fire protection a responsi-
bility of general government and
that the forest industry should bear
a big share of the cost.
