St. Joe Key Club
Sponsor of Unit
Officials of Chapman High
Lauded for Making Club
Available To Boys
By HARRY McKNIGHT
A Key Club was established and
received its charter in ceremonies
at Chapman high school, Apalachi-
cola, last Saturday night, the spon-,
soring organization being the Port
St. Joe Key Club. The new organi-
ation started off with 15 members,
all of whom were present with their
President Red Anthony received
the charter on behalf of the club
from Harold G. Martin, Kiwanis
immediate past governor, who key-
noted his address to the large gath-
ering with these words: "The pur-
pose of the Key Club can be summed
up by simply one word, 'think,' and
if it accomplishes nothing else in
thh school life of a boy than to
make him think positively and in-
telligently, it has laid the ground-
work for a successful man."
Martin phrased the non-thinker
under three heads, viz.: the "swell-
head," the "blockhead" and the
"pinhead." The swellhead he de-
scribed as one who is too self-cen-
tered to think about the rights and
feelings of others, and ultimately
finds himself shunned and left to
himself. The blockhead, he said, is
one who does not think intelligently
enough in preprop "rr- s.j"1.- iul an']
healthy future for himself, or who
neglects the danger signals which
nature is constantly presenting,
thereby failing to make himself
mentally, morally, spiritually and
physically fit for adult life. The
third class he explained as the most
pathetic of all-one who cannot
think for himself at all, because he
has not taken advantage. of early
training and has come to depend
upon someone else to make his de-
cisions for him.
Martin lauded officials of Chap-
man high school for their farseeing
vision in making available this club

chka Kiwanis Club, which was fa-
thered by the Port St. Joe club.
Harold Martin of Fort Lauder-
dale, immediate past governor of
Florida Kiwanis, presented the
charter and reminded the 28 new
affiliates to live Kiwanis for "Ki-
wanis membership means much or
it means little, depending on youk"
Martin, whose address was key-
noted to the International theme of
"aggressive citizenship," and Tom-
my Smith of Panama City, lieuten-
ant governor of District 2, who pre-
sided, paid tribute to the memory
of the late Dr. J. R. Norton of this
city, who was called by death be-
fore his term as lieutenant gover-
nor expired. Martin stated that
during the time Dr. Norton served
as lieutenant governor he was in--
strumental in founding two new
Kiwanis and .three new Key clubs,

Chairman Issues Final Call for All-
Out Support In '49 Campaign
The 1949 March of Dimes cam-
paign ends in another three days,
and Henry Campbell, who heads
the drive, reports that the goal for
1949 may still be reached if the citi-
zens of Gulf county put their shoul-
ders to-the wheel during the few
days left for fund-raising purposes.
"When January 31 has passed,"
Campbell said, "we will know just
how well equipped we will be for
the hot polio months of summer.
Let's not forget that this 18-day
drive must produce results suffici-
ent to provide care for those who
may be stricken during the next
Campbell appeals to all holders
of coin cards to return them with
their voluntary contributions at the
earliest possible moment. Coin col-
lecting boxes will remain in stores
until the end of the drive.
"A heavy responsibility rests on
the shoulders of everyone in our
community," Campbell said. "That
responsibility is to see to it now,
that every possible aid can be given
to our boys and girls next summer
should infantile paralysis strike in
our homes. We've been lucky in
past years and we may escape this
year, but we can't be sure."

Watch Your Speed, Chief
of Police Warns Motorists
Been bearing down rather heavy
on the gas pedal lately while driv-
ing about the streets of our fair
city? If you have. you're just the
person Chief of Police Buck Griffin
has in mind.
Chief Griffin states that here of
late motorists have been driving
too fast, particularly on Long and
Monument Avenues, and he wants
to see a little less speed and more
consideration for safe driving.
"I'm asking for the co-operation
of all motorists," said Griffin. "I
don't want to make any arrests un-
less I have tobut if this speeding
doesn't stop, I'm going to issue a
number of tickets."
Barred By Court
Ruling of Federal Judge Is Kick In
Pants to Claude Pepper
Merger of the Florida East Coast
Railway with the Atlantic Coast
Line system, directed by the inter-
state commerce commission in a
6-to-5 decision last March, was dis-
approved Monday by Judge Samuel
Sibley of the Fifth U. S. Circuit
Court of Appeals at Jacksonville.
Judge Sibley, who sat as a U. S.
district judge in Jacksonville at a
hearing on the merger plan week
before last, returned the long and
hard-fought reorganization case to
the ICC for further hearing.
The ruling represented a victory
for the St. Joe Paper Company,
which owns.a majority of the $45,-
000,000 worth of FEC first and re-
funding bonds,.' afd which is also
seeking control of the bankrupt
Jacksonville-to-Miami railway. ,
It meant defeat for the Atlantic
Coast Line and Senator Claude Pep-
per, who.left his senate seat to ap-
pear before the. ICC and vigorously
oppose the duPont interests at
hearings before the ICC in Wash-
ington. The senator did not attend
the hearing at Jacksonville.
Sports Afield Goes
All Out On Florida's
Hunting and Fishing
Sports Afield magazine, largest
outdoor magazine in the world,
goes all out on Florida's hunting
and fishing in its February issue.
The magazine devotes 14 pages
of pictures and text to the state's
game and fish resources. The ar-
ticle calls Florida "one of the coun-
try's last fish and game frontiers."
It comprehensively covers every-
thing from bonefishing in the Keys
to quail hunting in North Florida.
The piece includes an eight-page
picture section, four of which are
in full colors. Some of the illustra-
tions show bass fishing on Lake
Okeechobee and the Dead Lakes in
Gulf county, snook fishing off the
Ten Thousand Islands, a drove of
wild turkeys in Orange county, a
flight of wild geese in Wakulla
county, and white-tail deer in the
piney woods of Southwest Florida'.
Shame On Glenn!

Speaker At PTA
Value of Health
Says Hookworm, Infant Mor-
tality, Venereal Diseases
Main County Problems
By MRS. RALPH SWATTS
"Health begins before birth and
continues unto death" was the
theme of the guest speaker, Miss
Louise Smith, consultant in the
field of health, state department of
education, at the January meeting
of the Port St. Joe Parent-Teacher
Association held Thursday evening
of last week in the high school au-
Miss Smith, introduced by Nobie
H. Stone, county supervisor of edu-
cation, stressed the importance of
correcting physical defects in their
early stages.. "Malnutrition," she
said, "is one of Florida's greatest
health problems," and "disciplinary
problems in the school and in the
home often are due to ill health."
The speaker also brought out the
fact that it is of the greatest im-
portance that home and school plan
together for the health, not only of
the child, but of every adult in the
community. Parents, she added, can
help the child to practice at home
what he is taught in school.
She also said that in studying the
local health records, she had dis-
covered that hookworm, venereal
diseases and infant mortality are
the outstanding problems in Gulf
county, and that. the first step in
tackling these probkbleimB-. to edu-
cate the public to the needs of the
community and inj taking corrective
measures. She insisted these prob-
lems can be greatly minimized by
a study and action group composed
of representatives from the home,
the school and the community at
large, all working and planning to-
gether to Oring about a better

follow-up to Miss Smith's talk, the

Our Country Right or Wrong
HARRY REALLY MEANT WHAT HE SAID
There was nothing that was unexpected and
little that was new in the president's state of the
Union message. He had covered practically all
of his points before, during and after the .cam-
paign. Yet the speech came as something of a
shock to a good many people-mainly for the
reason that this marked the first time that the
entire Truman program was summed up in cap-
Furthermore, this speech, along with other
formal and informal statements made by the
president since his election, takes the wind out
of the sails of those who believed that many of
the things the little guy said during the cam-
paign were for vote-getting purposes only, and
he didn't really mean them. Now even his po-
litical opponents are convinced that he means
exactly what he says. Thus, so far as he is able,
he will put into full effect every campaign prom-
ise he made.
To us it looks like the Trumani "Fair Deal" pro-
gram outdoes the "New Deal" in almost every
particular-and goes a great deal farther-and,
if it is adopted in large part by congress it will
Jiave a far greater influence on American life
and custom, and also be immeasurably more
It is also obvious that there are- points of
striking similarity between Harry's proposed ma-
jor policies and those of England's socialist la-
bor government. A vastly expanded social se-
curity program 4s one of these points. Others are
development of government power projects,
compulsory government medical insurance, gov-
This program envisions great and fundamental
changes in American life. It is a program which
sanctions a more powerful centralized govern-
ment than we have ever accepted in peacetime
-and which must burden in one way or another
the daily existence of everyone. It seems certain
that congress will do a great deal of hard think-
ing before it gives approval to any sizeable part
From what we read in the newspapers the
postwar boom seems to be slowing down a bit.
Some industries which, a short time back, could
not meet the demand-such as household appli-
ances-have been cutting production. Even in
the automobile field, where shortages were really
bad, conditions are changing rapidly. Some
models of cars are available almost immediately.
The market for the lower priced cars is still
*rong, but it begins to look like manufacturers
will soon have to push to make sales. A lot of
people are of the opinion that-there isn't going
to be a serious economic setback in the near fu-
ture-but those peaks are leveling off!
Keep smiling-and buy U S Savings Bonds.
