ALL ROADS WILL LEAD TO ST. JOE
All roads will lead to Port St. Joe next week
as the First Annual Gulf County Fair holds the
limelight from Monday through Saturday.
The stage is being set and the success or fail-
ure of the enterprise depends upon the people of
Gulf county-those who enter exhibits and those
who come to look at the exhibits. Upon the suc-
cess of this first fair for the county depends the
success of future fairs. If we all work together
to make this first one a success, each succeeding
one will be better, as we learn from experience
just how to go about staging such an event.
The job of organizing and setting up this fair
has not been an easy one. It has required much
painstaking planning on the part of a handful of
patriotic workers, and the liberality of materials
and cash on the part of many more.
We urge everyone to turn out next week-not
just for one day, or two days, but as many times
:as you can-and make this fair the success those
who have worked so hard hope it will be.

NOT BY BREAD ALONE
Each year, during the third week in October,
National Bible Week is observed. The 1949 ob-
servance will run from October 17 to 23.
The week is designed to again focus attention
on those basic principles of Christianity which
much of the civilized world is supposed to live
by-and which are so widely and tragically vio-
lated. Here in the United States, to say nothing
of other nations, we have little to pride ourselves
upon as Christians. We have the highest rate of
crime and delinquency in our history three
times as many people are incarcerated in penal
institutions as are attending universities and col-
leges. Eleven out of twelve young people are
not active church members. Over 8,000,000 peo-
ple are under treatment for mental disorders.
Religions and morals are often openly ridiculed,
and totalitarian principles, which are directly op-
posed to Christianity and all the other great re-
ligions as well, are advocated and taught. There
has never been a time when so much cheap and
tawdry entertainment-in books and magazines,
and on the radio, stage and screen-was offered
for sale, and it has a huge, audience. Racial and
class hatreds are rampant.'
Looking at the international scene, it is clear
that the failure to live up to the basic ideals of
Christitnity has led to misery and despair for
millions, to the enslavement of once-free peo-
ples, to a cold war which is absorbing more and
more of our energies, our thoughts, our resources.
The world is moving swiftly toward a cynical
materialism which may destroy it unless the
trend is checked.
At a time like this, National Bible Week has a
vast significance. In the great olt phrase, "Man
cannot live by bread alone."
Christmas is just around the corner, and if you
haven't ordered your "personalized" Christmas

Sharks Drop Game
To Chipley 13 To 7
Play Golden Eagles In Niceville To-
night and Meet Bay High
Juniors Next Friday
The St. Joe Sharks lost their first
grid game of the season last Friday
in Chipley when they lost out to the
Tigers by a 13-7 score in a hard-
fought game. The lone score was
made on a 15-yard pass by Childers
to Frank Young in the end zone.
The Sharks are scheduled to play
the Golden Eagles in Niceville to-
night in what promises to be an in-
teresting game. After their loss to
Chipley, the local squad has been
put through some stiff practice ses-
sions by Coach Marion Craig.
The Eagles have averaged over
25 points per game so far this sea-
son and will be favored to whip St.
Joe, but a determined team of
Sharks will be out to upset the dope
just as they upset Quincy.
Next Friday night, October 21,
the Bay high junior varsity team
from Panama City will play the
Sharks here on Centennial Field .at

He further pointed out thatmem-
bers of the national guard would
not be called for military training
under the present selective service
law, since the national guard is a
component part of the national de-
fense picture. He also pointed out
that a check for $40 or $50 every
three months (the guard receives
its pay quarterly) comes in mighty
handy at times.
After Sergeant Little had ex-
plained the pension and retirement
system set up by the guard, Cap-
tain Richards concluded the meet-
ing by stating that "we would wel-
come Port St. Joe in coming into
our unit, not only to help Apalachi-,
cola, but to help St. Joe."
Physical exeminations, free of
cost, will be given Monday night at
7 o'clock in the Gulf County Health
