Plans Underway For
Fall Flower Show
Plans are underway for the first
Fall Flower Show to be held by
the Port St. Joe Garden Clue. IJ.
the past, flower arrangements have
teen displayed at the Gulf County
Fair in Septmeber, but until now
the club has never undertaken a
ftll11-fledged flower show at t ns
time of the year.
An excellent and timely theme
entitled, "We Are Thankful", has
been chosen for the show The
theme itself brings to mind much
of the plant material available dur.
ing this season of the year such as:
fruits, vegetables, fall flowers, fo
liage, berries, dried pods, driftwood
The flower show schedule will ap-
pear in The Star next week and
will include many classifications
which should appeal to the amna-
teur flower arranger as well as the
more experienced. A little imagina-
tion combined with plant materials,
fruits and vegetables now available
should produce excellent results
even for the novice.
The Garden Club invites every-
one who enjoys the simple beauties
of mother nature to participate in
this show by entering arrangements
and horticultural specimens. Watch

'Trick Or Treat'
To Help Children
On UNICEF Aid
In recent years Hallowe'en has
been marked by increasing rowdy-
ism, vandalism and generalized
mischief in some parts of the na-
toin. In thousands of communities
the police forces take on extra
men in an effort to curb the com-
munity harassment. But since 1952.
when a group of Pennsylva iia Suii
day-school children gave their
"trick or treat" pennies to UNI
CEF, things have been looking up.
Last year, dressed in the tradi-
tional spooky costumes, a million
and a half youngsters in 7500 com-
munities in the 48 states, as well
as Alaska, Puerto Rico and Hawaii,
went forth on Hallowe'en eve, boi t
not on mischief but on collsatiug
pennies for the UNICEF "trick or
treat" program. The money was
used to buy milk and medicine for
sick and hungry children in other
parts of the world.
"Trick or treat" was organized
by the United States Committee
for UNIOEF with headquarters at
the United Nations in New York
City. In 1952, 484 communities in
30 states co-operated in the "trick
or treat" program and collected
$32,000 for the fund. Last year the
children turned in $750,000.
This year, children will be col-
lecting pennies for UNiCEF in
Port St. Joe on Hallowe'en night.
The local program is under the
direction of Mrs. Gus Creech.
All children are urged to take
part in this program. After their
season of collections and "spook-
ing" about the children are to turn
the money they collect in to their
respective churches that night. Up-
on arrival at the churches, light
refreshments will be provided for
the children. A collection station
will also be provided uptown with
the civic clubs of Port St. Joe fur-
nishing the refreshments and en-
tertainment in this station.
Each dollar collected will be
matched by 75c from other coun-
tries and with $3.00 by the country
receiving the aid, so that in reality
each $1.00 given means $4.75 in aid
for the world's underpriviledged

The Gulf County Rod and Gun
Club held its regular quarterly
meeting Saturday, October 12, at
the Wewahitchka High School Cafe-
teria. An excellent meal was served
under the direction of Judge S. P.

program was presented by various

Commission, was in charge of the
program, who in' turn introduced
James Bickerstaff, Northwest Flor-
ida Regional Manager, E. T. "Red"

erstaff reported that plans have
been made and were now in process

Dead Lakes-Chattahoochee River
area to be used to advertise this
area to people outside the state.
Mr. Bickerstaff also reported that
several members of the Gulf County
Rod and Gun Club had asked about
establishing a dove management
area in Gulf County with particu-
lar reference to the Cape San Blas
area. He reported that since dove
was classified as a migratory bird,
and came under the U. S. Fish and 1
Wildlife Service that the Federal
Government would have to be con-
tacted first for their cooperation, i

W. K. Settlemire reported that
progress on obtaining an easement
across the Lister property for a
road to the club property had bog-
ged down at present and that much

City Approaches County With
Plans For Road Fund Bond Issue
In a meeting that will probably mean more to the securing of roads for the cities in Gulf
County and the County as a whole since the creation of the secondary road program, Mayor J. L.
Sharit and the Port St. Joe City Commission presented a proposal to the Gulf County Board of
Commissioners Tuesday night to pave all roads in the County in one operation.
Sharit, acting as spokesman for the local Commission, whereby the County can pave all
existing roads in Port St. Joe, Wewahitchka, Highland View, Oak Grove, White City and other
populated areas in the county; construct the tumbler dam across the Dead Lakes in the immediate
future, and save money all at the same time -- all at no cost to the county tax payer.

SIbeen working on this idea for two

The Birthday of The United Nations
Today, October 24, is the birthday of the United Nations,
mankind's noblest attempt to establish lasting peace with jus-
tice. That date in 1945 was the historic day that the United
Nations officially came into being. It was the day on which the
charter was ratified by a majority of the then 51 participating
countries -- a Charter in which war-sickened humanity placed
its hopes and aspirations for a peaceful world.
Recognizing that no international organization can long
endure without the support of the peoples of the world, the UN
Gneeral Assembly in 1947 passed the following resolution:
". that October 24th shall henceforth be officially
called 'United Nations Day' and shall be devoted to
making known to the people of the world the aims and
achievements of the United Nations and to gaining their
support for the work of the United Nations."
In addition to maintaining international peace and secur-
ity, which is the principal purpose of the United Nations, there are
other purposes of singular importance which mean much to the
people of the world. Some of them include the consolidation
and extension of human rights throughout the world; care of the
refugee population; the child care program (UNICEF); aid to
the Non-Self-Governing peoples of the world and the making of
It certainly can't be said that the U.N. has attained its
first and main objective, that of maintaining international peace
and security. There have been wars since its inception and even
now war clouds seem to be gathering but we do know that the
organization is tirelessly working for world peace and just for
that alone our full support is warranted, and well deserved.
An Ounce of Prevention Here Also
Better Than a Pound of Cure Later
It is better business to prevent child delinquency than it
is to correct adult delinquency. An uphill effort is being made
in Florida to do just that. But it is an uphill effort and it is too
We're speaking of the child welfare efforts of the State
Department of Public Welfare. In our opinion, it is one of the
most important jobs being done by that entire department.
That's because the effort is being directed toward making better
citizens and a brighter future for our hundreds of under-
Through no fault of their own, unfortunately, some of
them are illigetimate. "But even they have a right to eat," we
recently heard a social worker tell a P-TA group. She noted that
children are often turned over to that department by the courts
as a result of deaths, sickness and desertions. "We are obligated
to take care of any child that is left without shelter," she said.
That particular phase of the public welfare program, by
the way got less consideration than any other during the last
session of the Florida Legislature. Successful efforts were made
to provide more aid to the aged to the disabled and the blind,
but not for dependent children.
Do you suppose it was because children don't vote?
The Legislators might have demonstrated more long-range
wisdom by investing some of the taxpayers' money now in such
unfortunate children, rather than permit them to grow up as
social misfits or with a grudge against a society that didn't give
them a chance. The Legislators in the future will have a clear
choice. They may spend a little money on the children now, or
postpone the expenditure a little longer and spend it, plus inter-
est, on ails, penitentiaries, court proceedings and mental hospi-
tals. The cost of the preventative work may be small in compari-
Such decisions, however, call for long-range vision and
statesmanship. We hope to see more evidences of that, too, as
our lawmakers beebome more acquainted with the problems with
which they grapple from time to time.-Washington County News.
We have nothing against scientists. Without them, the
world wouldn't be where it is today. But we wish that some of
them, at least, would stop trying to build bigger and better bombs
and concentrate on something like a mouse trap that can't slam
back on your finged.-Red Hook, N. Y. Advertiser.

Washington Tigers Over
By JIMMIE I. FRAZIER
Victory seemed to be replacing
ties and defeats suffered by the
weak Tigers of last year as they
rolled past Roulhac of Chipley in a
7-6 duel last Thursday night fn
Washington County. The Washing-
ton eleven got off to a poor start
behind a slow defense, enabling
Roulhac to drive 81 yards in 16
plays to strike pay dirt with the
game only three minutes old. The
Tigers were not to be outdone
They fought right back with a drive
which started on their own nine
yard line. Twelve plays later found
them 76 yards down the field dig-
ging for pay dirt with the ball on
the Roulhac 15. One play later
McNabb put a 15 yard pass into
the hands of Jackson Siples who
was standing in the end zone.
With the game tied, 6-6, veteran
halfback Jewel Givens smashed
his way over for the extra point,
putting the Tigers out in front for
the first time 7-6. Late in the fourth
period with seconds left to play,
Roulhac tried to surge back but
Washington had rallied together
and allowed the Chipley boys to!
penetrate no farther than the 30
The starting line-up was the same
for the Tigers except Earnest Giv-
ens started for Etavus Russ at
Thursday the Tigers will be look-
ing for victory number four when
they take on Rosenwald's Junior
Varsity of Panama City at Slugger's
Field in Port St. Joe.
