At'a meeting of officials of the

here-Tuesday night, discussion was
held on the matter of final playoffs.
It was decided at this time that the
playoffs will begin on Sunday, Au-

must be played by Saturday, Au-
gust 20. The finals in the Shaugh-
nessy playoff will end September

sequently they will meet Tallahas-
see here this afternoon, with Ward
on the mound: Sunday they will
play a double-header here with the
Tally boys, starting at 3 p. m., and
Alton and Schantel will hold down
'the mound for St. Joe.
These three games with Talla-
hassee are of vital import to St.. Joe
since they will virtually decide
whether or not the local team gets
into the playoff, and fans are urged
to turn out en masse to support
Next Tuesday Apalachicola will
play here and on Wednesday the
Saints will travel to Apalachicola.

PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, AUGUST 12, 1949
Does Damage At Block Plant
and Knocks Shingles Off
During a severe thunderstorm
Sunday afternoon, which was ac-
companied by an extremely heavy
downpour of rain, lighting bolts hit
twice in Port St. Joe, one striking
the small building housing the con-
crete block plant operated by Wat-
son Smith on Fifth Street, and the
other striking the Otto Anderson
home on Monument Avenue.
Damage at the Anderson resi-
dence was slight, the bolt knocking
off several asbestos shingles on
the front and back of the roof and
breaking an outside gas pipe, thru
which it apparently entered the
earth. Luckily, the Andersons were
at their Beacon Hill beach cottage-
at the time.
At the Smith block plant the
lightning entered on a heavy con-
duit carrying electric wires into the
building. It completely burned out
the wiring, demolished a large
switch and fuse box, destroyed an
electric welder on the floor beneath
the switch box, and set a corner
of the building afire. A passing mo-
torist saw smoke emerging from
the building and turned in a fire

teer fire department, "caught -the

Florida's First Lady Impressed With Beaches
Mrs. Fuller Warren, a visitor in
Port St. Joe last Friday, is greatly
impressed with the beaches of Gulf
county and is of the opinion that
the beaches in this vicinity are in
for great future development. '
This opinion was voiced by Flor-
ida's first lady at a Beacon Hill
beach party at which Representa-
tive George Tapper was host and
Mrs. Robert Tapper and Mrs. A. L.
Ward acted as -hostesses.
Others in the party accompany-
ing Mrs. Warren were Miss Alma
Warren, sister of Governor Fuller
Warren; Mrs. Raymond Barnes,
wife of the chairman of the state
industrial commission; Mrs. Rob-
ert Ghotto, wife of the secretary of
the state road department; Alford
McKeithen, chairman of the state
road department; Marion Nelson,
member of the state road depart-
ment, Third&District, and-wife; Jack
Hernaon, division' maintenance en-
gineer and George Dickersou, di-
vision engineer, state road depart-
ment, Third District; Quentin Long,
resident attorney, state'road de.
parthment, and wife; and' ten other
members of the state road depart-
ment, Third District.
All were entertained at a chicken
barbecue, the first Mrs. Warlen had
ever partaken of, and which she
pronounced as delicious. Later sev-
eral members of the party were
taken for a boat ride on the bay.
"I think Florida's west coast
beaches are very beautiful and I
believe that the beaches in this vi-
cinity are destined for great fu-
ture development," said Mrs. War-
ren. "The waters of the Gulf are
nicer to swim in than the Pacific
Ocean. I really enjoyed being here,
as it is the first time I have been
able to relax since coming to Flor-
ida, as all other parties and enter-
tainments were 'on. schedule' and

absolved her in that case.
, '-Spear said the grand jury would
'be reconvened at his recommenda-
tion to continue the investigation.
Meanwhile, Mrs. Coleman is being
held at the Gulf county jail.
The jury returned a no-bill Tues-
day in the shotgun killing of Byron
A. Barber of Wewahitchka, who
was killed by his wife, Mrs. Myrtle
Barber, on June 10 during a family
argument, according to records in
the office of Sheriff Byrd 'Parker.
No formal charge was ever placed
against Mrs. Barber, nor was she
ever placed under custody.

Our Country Right or Wrong
Glenn Boyles, one of The Star's most persist-
ent and best advertisers, when queried as to how
to merchandise and make a go of it, said: "There
are five simple principles of running a store:
(1) Find out what people want. (2) Have it.
(3) Advertise it. (4) Find out what people
don't want. (5) Don't have any of it."
Those five principles have taken on an added
importance, now that the buyers' market is back
in most lines, and consumers are shopping around
for the best deal for the money.
Back of it all, of course, lies competition. It is
the goad that guarantees good service and fair
prices. If one store in Port St. Joe hasn't got what
people want, they'll go down the street or over
to Panama City and buy it. If one store tries to
charge prices which are out of line, trade soon
becomes conspicuous by its absence. If a store
is unattractive and run down, and the displays
have a moth-eaten look, a "For Rent" sign will
soon occupy the window.
Merchants of Port St. Joe, if a look over their
stores today is any criterion, know that the era
,of shortages, when almost anything could be
:sold, even if it were shoddy, is over. They're act-
FASTER THE SPEED, GREATER THE RISK
When you spin the needle of an automobile
speedometer you are gambling with much higher
stakes than when you spin a roulette wheel-
because you bet your life!
The adage that the faster you go the harder
you hit is proved by statistics which show that
fatalities increase enormously as speed increases.
If you have an injury accident at 45 miles per
-hour, the chances of someone being killed are 1
;in 16. At 55 m.p.h., the odds are 1 in 6 that
STEN YEARS AGO
From the Files of The Star
Consider Electric Plant Application
An application for a franchise to
furnish electricity in the city of
Port' St. Joe was considered Tues-
day night by the city commission.
The application was made by the
Home Owners Aid Corporation. It
was decided to hold the matter in
abeyance until information was se-
cured from the corporation in re-
gard -to a financial statement, list
of officers, schedule of proposed
rates, and the type of plant and-
distribution system intended to be
constructed. The matter of grant-
ing such a franchise would have to
be voted upon by residents of the
Miss Josephine Elene Nimmo of
Palatka, daughter of Mrs. C. A.
Nimmo of this city, and John Clif-
ford Arbogast of Asheville, N. C.,
were united in marriage Wednes-
day evening in the St. James Epis-
copal Church, thie Rev. V. G. Low-
ery, archdeacon of the western con-
vocation, performing the: ceremony.
City To Impose Gasoline Tax
Tuesday evening, upon unani-
someone will be killed.
To drive 400 miles you can gain a little more
than one hour by increasing your constant speed
from 55 m.p.h. to 65 m.p.h., but to gain that one
hour you double the chance of someone being
killed if you have an injury accident!
A safe speed depends upon four things, ac-
cording to safety authorities: The age, physical
condition and ability of the driver. An older
driver usually reacts more slowly to danger than
a young person, for example. Similarly, a person
with subnormal eyesight must drive slower than
someone with good eyesight.
The mechanical condition of the car. Automo-
biles should be kept in good condition, but if
brakes, headlights or tires are not in top condi-
tion, speed must be reduced.
Traffic congestion. Speed obviously cannot be
as high on a crowded roadway as it can on a
clear, open stretch of highway.
Condition of the roadway and visibility condi-
tions. Speed must be reduced when it is raining,
or when driving on uneven pavement, stone or
gravel. At night, a safe. speed is one which will
permit you to stop in the distance illuminated
by you headlights.
KEEPERS OF THE HONEY
Watching Ed Pridgeon take the honey from
his bee hives, we were struck with the thought
that that was the way communistic governments
look upon their people-in the same manner as
a beekeeper looks upon his bees. The people and
the bees must produce for the bosses in order to
earn a living-of a sort-and get a hive for shel-
ter. But the government and the keeper get the
People don't thrive under the beekeeper plan
because they are individuals. They demand more
than the privilege of producing for political over-
lords at the expense of their freedom and in re-
turn for questionable security, although we will
say that Ed takes good care of his bees.
Many revolutions arnd civil wars have occurred
over resentment at dictatorial government acting
as a keeper of the people's honey. Eventually
men will reject a government that plays the part
of the beekeeper-and .that is exactly what your
friend (he ain't ours) Harry Truman is trying to
do today-become the beekeeper of the United
States and take all the honey for the government.
It seems to be getting more and more difficult
for the government to put across its explanations
that the present scarcity of jobs does not in any
way indicate a business recession. It is hard to
explain some things to a man whose job is gone.
Meanwhile, government expenses are skyrocket-
ing without any.slowdown. And the administra-
tion is asking for more and still more taxes.-The

How To Get Help
If Polio Strikes
First Thing To Do Is Call the
Doctor, Then Contact Local
Chapter of Foundation
At the first sign of illness, call
your own doctor. If he suspects
polio he will report the case to the
Gulf county health department and
arrange for hospitalization or home
care, as indicated.
If the doctor says it is polio and
requires hospitalization, the Gulf
County Chapter of the National
Foundation for Infantile Paralysis
will help arrange for transportation
to a treatment center. As soon as
the patient goes to the hospital-
or if the doctor advises the patient
can be treated at home-get in
touch with Joe Mira, chairman of
the Gulf county chapter, to arrange
for any needed assistance.
A representative of the local
chapter will notify the hospital that
it is arranging with you for full or
partial payment of expenses for
medical care. Adults are as eligible
for help as are children.
March of Dimes funds are used
to help families of moderate in-
come who cannot meet the high
costs of modern care of this expen-
sive disease. The help is a gift-
not a loan. While families that can
1pay are expected to do so, no fam-
ily is expected to impoverish itself
to meet medical exper.ses for polio.
Local chapters pay for hospitali-
zation, professional services, in-
cluding nursing and physical ther-
apy, transportation to and from
hospitals, convalescent centers and
clinics, treatment after hospitaliza-
tion, and appliances such as wheel-
chairs, braces, etc., as needed.
In addition, the Gulf county chap-
ter can put you in touch with the
proper sources for nursing and
physical therapy at home, can refer
you to rehabilitation and vocational
training agencies, will provide lit-
erature designed to foster better
understanding of infantile paraly-
sis-so you will know what to ex-
pect and how to help your polio pa-
tient back to a useful life.
