Gulf Red Cross
County Quota Set At $1500,
52% of Which Will Be
Gulf county's 1951 Red Cross fund
campaign got underway yesterday
under the direction of Jos. V. Dowd
of this city, chairman. Quota for
the county this year is $1500, an in-
crease over last year due to in-
creased demands caused by the war
Of funds collected, 52% will be
retained in Gulf county for local re-
quirements, including such aids to
service men and their families as
emergency communications and re-
ports, counseling in personal and
family problems, verification of the
need for emergency leave, financial
assistance in emergencies, and in-
formation regarding government
benefits'and assistance in applying
The balance, or 42% of the sum
raised in Gulf county, will go to the
national Red Cross for varied re-
quirements, such as disaster relief.
During the past five years the state
of Florida as a whole received the
sum of $2,045,579.25 for disaster re-
lief. For the same five-year period,
the people of Florida contributed
$1,748,242.51 to national headquar-
ters, thus receiving $302,336.74 over
what they contributed.
When such facts as these are
taken into consideration, points out

COUNTY'S YOUTH TO TAKE INVENTORY
Farm boys and girls of Gulf county are observ-
ing National 4-H Club Week March 3 to 11,
along with the rest of Florida's 26,0.00 and the
nation's 2,000,000 club members.
The people of Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka
know the value of agriculture; our farmers not
only grow much of the food we pat, but they
also come into town on Saturday and frequently
through the week to buy their clothes, farm
equipment. and other necessities from the local
Much of the trade of the two cities of the
county-their lifeblood-depends upon the far-
mer. And for this reason, a little attention paid
to our rural boys and girls, who 'will be full-
fledged farmers and farm homemakers five to
ten years from now, is not inappropriate.
What are the high points of the 4-H Club mem-
bers' observance this year?
First, there's the matter of thrift. Thrift is a
virtue for both the farm and the city youth. But
we are especially dependent upon the thrift of
the farm boy, for unless he learns early the les-
son of thrift in crop rotation and cover crop prac-
tices-in short, the scientific knowledge required
for producing Florida's vegetable, field crops,
meat and citrus-all of us would see the differ-
-ence on our dinner table in a short time.
Second, the farm boy and girl are pledging
themselves to better understanding of world af-
fairs. What's happening in Korea is a long way
from here, but some of our Gulf county farm
boys are fighting in Korea today.
A healthy farm boy or girl who has raised a
prize pig or heifer, or produced a record field
or vegetable crop isn't likely to become a Com-
munist. In fact, such a youngster who has learned
to produce with his own hands and who knows
the fruit of his own work, is just about as far
away from becoming a disciple of totalitarian
government as he can get. But in order to better
fight the insidious spread of Communism our
farm boy and girl must have an understanding of
So The' Star congratulates the farm boys and
girls of Gulf county upon their program for the
week. And we'll be mighty proud of them when
they become in their own right the full-fledged
farmers and rural homemakers of our county.
We've just discovered why the people of Ver-
mont live to such ripe old ages. When they
reach a certain age they are put in a snowbank
every winter and frozen, then thawed out in the
spring, thus adding many months or years to
their time for living.
LET'S MOVE ON REDISTRICTING
Florida has been officially notified that it is
entitled to two additional seats-a total of eight-
in the house of representatives in congress. Seats
in the house are distributed among the states on
the basis of population. Florida grew more
rapidly than all but two of the states in the Union,
between the 1940 and 1950 census, and the ad-
ditional seats were allotted in recognition of this
It is now up to Florida to decide in what man-
ner the. new representatives shall be chosen.
i. Two courses are open. The seats can be filled
on a state-wide or at-large basis, or they can be
filled by dividing the state into eight instead of
the present six congressional districts.
The easy way out would be the use. of the at-
large method. But that could not correct the in-
equitable situation which now exists. Moreover,
as Florida's six congressmen-have pointed out in
a joint statement to leaders of the Florida legis-
lature, members elected at-large frequently lose
seniority in the house through subsequent re-
The allotment of two additional seats provides
an opportunity for a fair division of the state into
eight congressional districts having comparatively
equal populations. The responsibility for taking
advantage of it rests with the 1951 legislature.
Its leaders should get to work now on a sound
plan for redistricting the state so it can be pre-
sented when the legislature convenes in April.
If they don't, Floridians should be prepared to
step in and demand prompt action.-The Tampa
A WAY IN AND OUT
The public of Florida has just awakened to
the fact that it has untold riches in its back yard
-in its public parks and recreation grounds, But
the tragedy is that so few people can get to them
The state road department has taken a forward
lookifig view of this problem. Authorized and di-
rected by the 1949 legislature to construct roads
to and from state parks, the road department has
planned to open up as many of these valuable
areas this year as its budget will permit.
Along with access roads, the department and
the park board .together are planning many more
wayside parks, where the people may pause for
picnics, for a rest, or to break their journey. Some
of these facilities will fit into major state parks,
as an added attraction.
This happy combination of roads and parks
guarantees that before many more years have
passed, the people of Florida and their guests
can have a way in and a way out of public rec-
reation areas, a way to and from the few remain-
ing miles of public beach on Florida's shore, a
way to get to places to enjoy Mother Nature in
her most exuberant moods.
For these blessings the public will give thanks.
We're glad to see that a two-thirds majority of
the states have ratified the anti-third term for
president constitutional amendment. Too bad it
couldn't have been passed sooner to prevent your
friend Harry from-seeking another four-year lease
on the White House. However, the fact that the
Amendment has been ratified may have a sort of
psychological effect and act to prevent him from
receiving sufficient electoral votes to be returned

agencies would save the stale $3,-

Referring to the state's welfare
program, Gay emphasized that he
was strongly in favor-of taking care
of the needy and the dependent,
but that care should be taken that
the program is not abused. "If this
program gets out of hand," he said,
1 "it could sap the income of our
state. It already has grown from
nothing to $50,000,000 within the
past fifteen years." He added that
this program of welfare spending
should skyrocket during times of
prosperity is an alarming situation.
