'::The 'Student Council Convention,
originally scheduled for January

.is set for April 24 and 25.
All activities for which students
from severalschools will be excus-
ed must be registered on the Flor-
ida Activities Calendar. This comes
under the department of Lafayette

from of Florida Activities Association.
iected All activities should be sent in be-
dicial fore March so that the Calendar

rough the convention was not registered

orney date must be given for the conven-
construct a new soft-water system
for the city of 'Port St. Joe.
The Commission had recently se-
cured an engineer's recommenda-
tions on the type construction need-
ed to supply the city with adequate
supply of soft water to replace the
old system which produced only
hard sulfurous 'water.
The Commission deliberated on
the recommendations and cut the
original estimate made by the firm
down a considerable amount.
Included in -the bond issue will
be funds to pay off a $159,320.00
debt made by the city when the
original water and sewage system
was installed in 1538.
Repairs To Dispoeal Plant
One of the projects to be car-
ried out in the proposed construc-
tion- will be the renovation of the
city disposal plant y'hich is in need
of several minor repair jobs and to
make it efficient at a top peak.
The new water system will con-
sist of a pumping station on the
banks of the fresh-water canal op-
erated by the St. Joe Paper Com-
pany carrying water from the Chi-
pola River to the local plant. The

lines to the-new High School build-
ings and water and sewage to the
museum which will be constructed
in the near future at the Monument
All of the new construction will
amount -to approximately $156,000
of the $315,320.00 bond issue.
Payments Over 20 Year Period
The bond issue will cost the city
approximately $25,000.00 per year
with interest to be around four per-
cent. The Commission plans to re-
tire the bonds with revenue from
the water, system and by allowing
40 percent of the utility tax to the
fund. This portion of the utility
tax is now allowed into another
portion of the city budget for the
year of 1954 but when the budget
is redrawn, the 40 percent will be
earmarked for the purpose of re-
tiring the water and sewage bonds.
The indebtedness will last over a
period of 20 years. The Commis-
sion states that they can now see
a guaranteed supply of money to
retire the bonds and foresee a
growth in the two sources of re-
venue earmarked for retiring the
bonds so they are reasonably cer-
tain of meeting all of the payments
on time and possibly ahead of time
in the near' future.

An old man going a lone highway

To a chasm deep and wide.
The old man crossed in the twi-
The sullen stream held no fear
But he turned when he crossed on
the other side,
And built a birdge to span the tide.
"Old man" said a fellow pilgrim
"You are wasting your strength in
Your journey will end with the
You never again will pass this way:
You've crossed this chasm deep
and wide, '
Why build you this bridge at eve-
The builder lifted his old grey
"Good friend, in the path I've
come." he said
"There followeth after me today
A youth whose feet must pass this
This chasm which was naught to
To this fair youth may a pitfall be;
He, too, must cross in twilight dim
Good friend I'm building this bridge

AND IN THIS CORNER .
The editor of The Star is extremely happy
to observe the high caliber of the candidates
-who have-announced to date for the local politi-
cal offices. It has been our fond hope for the
past few months since the smell of an election
began to permeate the air that men ,of high
moral standing would announce for office. 'We
are writing this not to suggest that.the men we
have in office now are not desirable but we do
bold with the opinion that some of the officials
are undesirable; possibly not as individuals but,
some candidates just didn't have what it takes
to hold a public office.
We sincerely hope that any other candidates
whoever they might be that might come out are
of the caliber as those announced to date. As
this is being written only three candidates have
avowed their intention to run in the coming.
elections. In the county commission race we
have R. F. "Fritz" Scheffer, Sr., offering for
the position being vacated by B. E. Kenney, Jr.,
who is ineligible to run again for his district due
to the fact that he has moved out of the district.
In Wewahitchka, E. C. Harden,' Sr., has come
out for the position being vacated by J. S. Dan-
iels, who as far as we know this early has not
offered yet for re-election. Can you think of
a better brace of candidates?
In the State Representative race Cecil G.
Costin, Jr., is offering for re-election on his en-
viable record that he made in the last session
of the legislature. At present, he has no oppo-
sition, but he may have before the week is out.
So you see, Mr. and Mrs. Voter, you have
a chance to elect some first-class men to public
office, that isif you have re-registered to vote.
The registration books leave Port St. Joe
February 1 and-after that date it will be neces-:
