The voters of Gulf county will go
to the polls next Tuesday for the
purpose of okehing or rejecting a
proposed 7-mill levy for the next
two years for operation of county
schools and to name three trustees
for two-year terms. Two years ago
voters of the county passed favor-
ably on a levy of 3 mills for opera-
tion of the schools. The increased
millage is deemed necessary due to
anticipated increase in school at-
tendance during the next two years.
It is customary to elect three
trustees at these elections, but as
there are but three names appear-
ing on the ballot this year, there
will be no competition. Those quali-
fying were Floyd Hunt of this city
and R. D. Lister of Wewahitchka,
present trustees, and Joe Dowd,
also of this city. Jake Belin, one of
the present trustees, is not seeking

for governor, is making a "farce"
of Florida's new election code, ac-
cording to Dick Ervin, state attor-
As an announced candidate for
governor, Hendrix is required un-
der a new election law passed by
the last legislature to file weekly
reports of the money he has spent
on his candidacy and the contribu-
tions he has received.
Hendrix .has refused to name a
bank through which his campaign
funds will flow, as required by the
law, on the ground it would violate
his religious tenets to do business
through a bank.
His second "report," filed with
Secretary of State Bob Gray, listed
his expenditures for the period Oc-
tober 22-27 at $6.50. He said $5 was
spent for an advertisement in a
Jacksonville weekly for a campaign
treasurer "who is not afraid of be-
ing smeared by the Jews, who has
at least 10 years experience at com-
plicated election laws." He listed $1
as spent to pay for having a radio,

50c to Chattahoochee for one brain"
for a Tallahassee political writer.
He reported contributions of $4.60
from persons he listed as Tutsie

"Slow week, ain't it." He also sub-

contributors were listed as John

plans of the Parent-Teacher Asso-
ciation of Port St. Joe for the an-
nual school carnival to be presented
To those who about this time last
year watched P.-T. A. in the pro-
cess of ushering into the city a mul-
titude of witches, goblins, dragons,
black cats and numerous other in-
spirations of horror, this year's pre-
sentation of Fairyland should be a
welcome change. For months plans
have been in the making, and as
announced by the carnival chair-
man, Mrs. Jack Swain, in the Octo-
ber meeting, are really something
about which to write home.
The carnival will open on the
Centennial grounds at 4 p. m. to-
morrow. Fun booths will include a
hall of horrors, in charge of Mrs.
J. H. Geddie and. Mrs. B. C. Gail-

prise booth, Mrs. Tiny Jones; dart
boards, Mrs. Franklin Jones; milk
bottle alley, Mrs. Massey Ward;
pet show, Mrs. John Blount; shoot-
ing gallery, Mrs. Youa.1 Wages;
arts and crafts, Mrs. J. L. Fuller.
A costume parade for kindergar-
ten children and others wishing to
enter will begin at the Centennial
Auditorium at 4:30 p. m. and circle
the park. Some lucky little girl and-
boy will win prizes.
Food being the road to a man's
heart-or to a womans-or to a
boys' or girls'-P.-T. A. has made
ample provision that this road may
be well traveled. The cake sales
will be in charge of Mrs. Welton
Roche, Mrs. E. P. Lapeyrouse and
Mrs. Walter Richardson; pies, Mrs.
Sue Sapuding and Mrs. Carol War-
ner; Mrs. Paul Fensom and Mrs.

Tyndall Chaplain To
Conduct Study Week
Beginning Monday night at 7:30

curing the services of Chaplain Paul
L. Morgan of Tyndall Field to lead
in this work," said Rev. L. J. Keels,
pastor. "Chaplain Morgan is a very
forceful speaker. He has made a
special study of Sunday school
work, and is well qualified to, lead
in these studies."

Our Country Right or Wrong
JUST WHAT IS A 'FAIR'?
The editor of The Star is secretary of the Gulf
County Fair Association, the charter of which is
owned by Willis V. Rowan Post 116, American
Legion, he is also adjutant of the post and con-
siders himself a fair Legionnaire. We are explain-
ing all this because what we are about to say is
going to rile some folks-paricularly members of
the local Legion post-but somebody should say
something about' it, and We've sort of become
accustomed to sticking our neck out.
What we are referring to is the bringing in of
large carnivals as a part of the annual fair which
take from our community five or six thousand
dollars, perhaps more, during the week they play
here. This hurts our local merchants, our local
theater and other businesses, but it particularly
hurts the working man who goes out on the mid-
way and spends more than he should before he
We've belonged to Legion posts which spon-
sored fairs and a number of them brought in a
small outfit having about three rides and no
"gyp" joints or honky-tonk shows. They them-
selves operated a shooting gallery, wheels, knock-
down-the-milk-bottles, dolls, etc., and the greater
part of the money realized from the carnival
went to the Legion post, which in turn spent it
in their home town. We think it's a, good idea.
But we are opposed to some carnival company
dodging fair and just city, county and state li-
censes and amusement taxes (although the city
dads did this year insist that our city tax be col-
lected on all admissions) simply by billing them-
selves as a fair and getting some non-profit or-
ganization to loan its name in exchange for free
licenses and a percentage on the operation of the
Why should our local theater, with its payroll,
costly operating expenses, a considerable amount
invested in our city and civic co-operation mani-
fested, through benefit shows, contributions to
local charities and team work with our civic or-
ganizations be penalized by competition in the
amusement field by carnivals which are granted
Let's just stop a moment and ask ourselves
"Just what is a fair?" Is it a carnival company plus
a small display of home-canned fruits and vege-
tables, fancywork, etc., or should it be a complete
display of all the resources of our county, some-
thing that we can view with pride and say: "All
of that and more makes up Gulf county."
True, the carnival that played here last week
was clean and did not carry the usual bunch of
gyp games manned by fast-talking artists who
would take a gullible customer for everything
but his shoelaces, but despite that it did take out
of our city thousands of dollars that should have
gone into the tills of our business people-the
people who pay taxes and assist in making Port
St. Joe the up-and-coming city it is.
We've had our say-you can take it from here.
"I'm going to give you the maximum punish-
ment," the judge announced to a crestfallen de-
fendant. "I'm not going to putyou in our nice

taxes, shortages, unemployment, politics, war and
the high cost of living-just like the rest of us."

on the midway of the fair last Fri-

Glenn Boyles off his ad last week,
and there was an error on it, being
"Gingham Gowns $1.00." It was
Glenn's own copy, but we were in
a hurry and didn't call him to read
proof. He called us up and re-
gretfully said he couldn't use 'em.
S. We had intended not charging
him for them, but as we passed by
his store Friday, we noticed that
he had marked a 2 over the 1 and
was using the dodgers. We informed
him that we were going to charge
him half .price for the job.... You
should have heard his pitiful story.
Seems there was a wan, hungry-
looking young woman came into the
store begging for a pair of shoes
for her tattered little ragamuffin
son. She begged with tears in her
eyes for a pair of shoes ... And
big-hearted Glenn gave her the
shoes in return for marking 500
twos over the $1.00 on the dodgers.

ours we ran a couple of weeks
ago on taxes, "Stop, Look and Lis-
ten!", saying, in part: "We were
inclined to be slightly on the lazy
side this week-again-so have
called in help. The help comes in
the way of an editorial clipped
from our friend Bill Smith's paper
down at Port St. Joe-The Star.
We could have written a week and
not said more than has been said
in this truth-revealing editorial-
and, of course, everyone' knows it
is the truth that usually hurts (and
taxes are certainly getting to the
point where they really hurt).
"The article expresses right to
the letter our feeling. We, too, are
one of 'Uncle Harry's' bookkeepers
and it is cramping our style some-
thing awful--especially when we
don't get to go fishing any more than
we do for having to stay around

tion (here he quoted our edit).

Truman wasn't HIS friend. Truth
is, Bill, Harry isn't anybody's friend,

that are not too heavy may be

PORT ST. JOE
IS TAKEN BY DEATH
James L. Griffin, 69, of Wewahit-
chka, died last Friday in a Jackson-
ville hospital. He conducted a gro-
cery store in the county seat city.
Funeral services were held Sun-
day afternoon at the Wewahitchka
Methodist Church, with Rev. S. F.
Lowery officiating. Interment was
in Jehu Cemetery, with the Com-
forter Funeral Home of this city in
charge of arrangements.
Survivors are one daughter, Mrs.
Verona Inez Hurt of Jacksonville;
one son, Johns C. Griffin, Columbus,
Ga.; four sisters, Mrs. Ethel Willis
and Mrs. Lois Raker of Sopchoppy,
Mrs. Borthula Lewis of Cairo, Ga.,

Waves as high as 50 and 60 feet
have been observed in the South
Atlantic Ocean off the Cape of
On June 15, 1950, an Emergency Board
appointed by the President under the
terms of the Railway Labor Act-an Act
largely fathered by the unions themselves
-made its recommendations on certain
wage and working conditions ("rules" in
railroad language) which had been in dis-
pute between employes and the railroads.
More Than 90% of Employes Accept
Since then, terms equal to or better than
the Board recommendations have been
accepted by about 1,200,000 railroad em-
ployes-more than 90% of the total of all
workers. They are represented by 20 of
the 23 standard railroad unions.
Less Than 10% Refuse
But three unions-with about 130,000
men, or less than 10% of the total-have
refused to accept, even after months of
negotiations. These three unions are the
Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers,
the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen
and Enginemen, and the Order of Railway
Conductors. These are three of the so-
called "operating" unions. Already the
highest paid men in the industry, their
leaders demand still further advantages
over other workers.
In all, there are about 270,000 operating
employes. But not all of them, by any
means, are represented by BLE, BLF&E,
or ORC. As aSmatter of fact, less than
half-132,000 to be exact-are in these
three unions. More than half-about
140,000-are in other unions, principally
the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen.
What makes the whole situation so hard
to understand is that these 140,000 op-
erating employes are working under wages
and rules which the leaders of the other
130,000 say they cannot agree to.
What Do the'Railroads Offer?
They offer these three unions the same
settlement which was contained in a Mem-
orandum of Agreement signed at the White
House on December 21, 1950, by four
brotherhoods and the railroads. Later
these brotherhoods sought to repudiate
this agreement. But on May 25, 1951, the
Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen signed
a. complete agreement carrying out the

the railroads. But leaders of three unions-with only
about 130,000 men, or less than 10%-still refuse, after
more than a year of negotiations, to accept similar
wage and' rules agreements. These are even more
favorable than the terms recommended by the Emer-

principles of the Memorandum Agreement
of December 21. They have been working
under this agreement since May 25.
What About Wages?
Under the terms of the agreement, yard
engineers, firemen and conductors would
now be receiving a wage increase of $.34
an hour ($2.72 a day) and road engineers,
firemen and conductors would now be re-
ceiving an increase of 19% cents an hour
($1.56 per day). Large sums of retroactive
pay have already accrued and if the agree-
ment is carried out, will be paid promptly.
What About "Cost of Living" Increases?
The VWhite House Agreement includes an
"escalator" clause under which wages will
be geared to changes in the Government's
cost-of-living index. Two such increases
-April and July, 1951 -havealready been
paid to the 90% of railroad employes cov-
ered by signed agreements.
What About the 40-Hour Week?
The White House Agreement calts for the
establishment of the 40-hour week in prin-
ciple, for employes in yard service. The
employes can have it any time after Jan-
uary 1, 1952, provided the manpower sit-
uation is such that the railroads can get
enough men to perform the work with
reasonable regularity at straight time
rates. If the parties do not agree on the
question of availability of manpower, the
White House Agreement provides arbitra-
tionby a refereeappointedbythePresident.
What Else Do the Union,
The continued quibbling of the leaders of
the three unions has to do principally with
rules changes, which have already been
agreed to by the Brotherhood of Railroad
Trainmen. Of these, the principal one
seems to be that having to do with so-
called "interdivisional service"-runs
which take in two or more seniority dis-
The union leaders would bar progress
and efficiency in the industry, and better
service to the public, by maintaining a
situation where they can arbitrarily stop
a railroad from establishing such inter-
divisional runs. The carriers propose that
if a railroad wishes to set up an inter-
divisional run, the railroad and the unions
should try to agree on such run and the
conditions which should surround its es-
tablishment and if the railroad and the
unions can't agree, the matter will be sub-
mitted to arbitration.
But the three union leaders still refuse.
Rules Can Be Arbitrated
The railroads have not only offered these
three unions the same rules agreed to by
the BRT and covered by the White House
Agreement, but have even agreed to.sub-
mit such rules to arbitration.
The Industry Pattern Is Fixed
With the pattern so firmly established in
the railroad industry, it seems fair to sug-
gest that the leaders of BLE, BLF&E,

To Run Their Show
Behind Iron Curtain
Taxpayers Should Drop In-
difference and Raise Up
On Their Hind Legs
By RUSSELL KAY
My father was a patient man. He
would admonish us kids for leaving
our roller skates on the front walk,
or marbles on the parlor rug where
someone was bound to stumble
over them, but he seldom lost his
It was only when we would lie or
try to hide our wrongdoing that he
would blow his top. On such oc-
casions, he would take stern meas-
ures. An attempt to hide or falsify
a report card was an offense he
would not tolerate.
The average citizen and taxpayer
is a lot like my father. Patient and
long-suffering they will stand for
a lot before becoming disturbed
enough to put their foot down. Just
as indulgent parents are inclined to
laugh off childish laxities on the
grounds that "boys will be boys",
the average citizen watches the
pranks of politicians and, while he
may not always approve, shrugs his
shoulders and says "politics is poli-
Because of the apathy and indif-
ference of most people today, a lot
of public officials, through sharp
practice or downright dishonesty,
have brought discredit upon them-
selves and their administration.
Honest mistakes and stupidity have
given way to deliberate crooked-
ness and cupidity.
When an inquisitive press or
grand jury uncovers the facts, they
bitterly resent such intrusion and
seek. ways and means of curbing
this interference. Following in the
steps of the dictator, they try to
hide their misconduct behind secret
sessions and closed doors.
'More and more, public officials
in all branches of government are
seeking to run their show behind
an iron curtain by excluding the
press from their meetings and giv-
ing out only such information they
choose to give.
They entirely lose sight of the
fact that they are public servants,
elected by the people or serving un-
der those who are. They contend
that their actions are their own
business and, without any hesita-
tion, withhold public information.

Truman in authorizing any govern-
ment bureau or board to withhold
