EUROPEAN WAR IS TOSS-UP
The way Germany is taking her objectives
it looks like a toss-up as to whether the Al-
lies or the Nazis will come out victorious.
Anything may happen.
And that situation should cause the United
States to consider what steps must be taken
against the event of a sweeping victory by
the dictators, which would put all of Europe
firmly under the heels of Hitler, Mussolini
It is apparent that sentiment in this.coun-
try is heavily in favor of expanding our armed
forces as rapidly as possible. At the same time
it is equally apparent that we have no fixed
military policy, and that no one really knows
just how strong we must become in the -light
of the strength of possible enemies. One
school of thought holds that if Hitler wins,
America will be faced with the potentiality of
immediate military and economic invasion.
The great conquerors of the past have
never stopped-they have gone on' until, like
Alexander, they dominated the world, or, like
Napoleon, came to a Waterloo. Their past
successes, in other words, breed future cam-
paigns. And the very fact that their people
are hungry and exhausted makes it necessary
for the mto force their armies on, in search
of new resources and new victories.
On the other hand, some believe that the
victor in the present war will be so worn out
that it will take' generations before its ener-
gies can be sufficiently renewed ,to make more
Irrespective of who is right in this contro-
versy, it seems certain that military expan-
sion will go on here. Japan has a navy almost
on a parity with ours, and reports indicate
that Germany has fighting planes against
which our best planes would be inadequate,
'And there can be no question as to the weak-
ness of the American army. It woefully lacks
anti-aicraft guns, tanks and other essentials,
according to the army high command itself.
The trouble is that we have not decided
upon any fixed defense program-and it is
obvious that the kind of army and navy and
air force needed to defend our shores is vastly
different from the kind we would need to de-
fed the far-flung Philippines, or to again send
an A. E. F. to Europe.
In an election year, with both parties try-
ing to win the voters by any possible means,
there is little chance of a program being de-
fined-in all probability, it will remain as
vague and indecisive as it is at present and
if we do have to go to war countless thou-
sands of the young men of our land will lay
down their lives due to this unpreparedness,
just as they did in 1918. The subject is too
full of political dynamite to appeal to the of-
fice-seekers-it is easier and safer to simply
talk in general terms of national defense.
OUR NEXT GOVERNOR
Maybe we didn't pick our U. S. senator, but
we sure hit the nail on the head when we
picked Spessard Holland as the logical man
to fill the governor's chair. And the main
reason why we picked Spessard from the field
of eleven candidates was because when we
talked with him and studied his platform -we
knew that he was sincere and honest in
everything he said and stood for, and that he
had the best interests of Florida at heart.
H-e doesn't want to be governor just to be
governor; he has certain standards and ideals
which he believes, if put into effect, will
create a state government which will com-
mand respect-a government that is honest,
liberal, efficient, economical, wholly non-
sectional, and soundly democratic.
Holland's past record speaks for itself-he
stands for all that is best for the state of
Florida, and we of Gulf county should stand
solidly behind him and his ideals when we go
to the polls on May 28.
WE AIN'T MAD AT NO ONE
The following letter from George L. Burr,
Jr., campaign manager for Governor Fred P.
Cone in his race for the United Stats sen-
ate, expresses the sentiments of the editor ot
The Star to a T:
"I have just made a great discovery. O0
course, my friends have intimated it to me for
years, my father and mother .lad warned
me, and numerous persons .had advise
against being too trusting in placing my af-
fecti6ns;. but just now have I discovered
what. a fickle dame Politics really is.'
"You just can't trust her.. She. will desert
pld and tried friends for the first dashing
caballero who comes along.. Here Charlie,
"Socker," Doc and Uncle Fred.were having a'
nice friendly time a courfif" hiere, and every-
thing was goin' along just "sweIl. Charlie was
squirin' her around with" courtly manner,
Jerry was promising' to give-her pa and ma
$200 a month so that they could live in a
style to which they were unaccustomed,
"Socker" was -croonin' the sweetest love
songs, and Uncle ,Fred was the old depend-
able friend of-the family who did the work,
took all the cussings, and kept enough .money
in the exchequer to pay the bills.
"Then down comes a dashing and gay
caballero from the North, a Yankee dressed
up in good old Southern style-and driving' an
airplane. And, boy, did he take her for a
ride! She dropped Uncle Fred so she could
devote the time she had been spending' with
him to slidin' down rosy clouds with the man
with the flyin' machine. Of course she hung'
on to Charlie because she kinda liked 'his
grand and courtly style, and she' sort kept
Jerry hangin' around 'cause she just ain't.
been able to make up her mind about what
she's goin' to be able to do with pa and ma.
"She's gotta make up-her mind pretty soon
whjch one of these two lucky guy's she's
gonna marry; and when she does, Uncle Fred
and all of us folks will attend the weddin'.
We ain't mad with no one; and while we
may heave a sigh or two, we'll be the first
ones in line to kiss the bride. After all, she
has been nice to Uncle Fred and the rest o
us in years gone by, and we're all grateful
for past favors. And anyway, tomorrow is
another day, and was gotta save up some-
thing to worry about then."
WE'LL PARK WITH MAYS
We stuck with G. Pierce-Wood in the pri-
mnary congressional race because we believed
he was the best man for the job. He has been
eliminated and the runoff will be between i
Parkhill Mays and Boy Sikes. We'll park I
with Parkhill in the second primary.
And the reason for this is that Parkhill
Mays, reared in this district, and knowing c
well the people and their problems, is an ag- r
gressive, likeable, honest, upright and truth- i
ful sort of a person, and that kind of a duck,
in our opinion, is what we need in Washing- c
ton to replace Millard Caldwell who is the c
same type of person and who served this dis- c
trict well. f
Parkhill's daddy before him served as con-
gressman from this district for two terms,
and the young man is a chip off the old block i

The Story of
Health Department Director Tell.
How Dread Disease Gets
By DR. R. J. LAMB
Health Department Director
Tuberculosis is caused by a liv
ing germ called the tubercle .ba
cillus. This.germ is so small thai
it can be carried into the body or
particles of dust or from sneezing
or coughing of some positive tu
berculosis patient. They' are so
small that more than 1000 can pass
through a pinhole. They may live
for several hours in moist sputum
and may resist drying .or freezing
for some time, but .once .they gel
in the body they multiply rapidly.
The germ enters the human
body in numerous ways. Careless
people spit on the floor and side-
walk. Germs may be in their spu.
tum, dried with the dust, and
be blown about and inhaled by
passers-by. Children play on dirty
floors and on the 'sidewalks. They
get the germs on their hands and
transferred inside their system.
Germs may also be transferred on
spoons, drinking cups, whistles,
pencils, pipes, etc., and the next
person using any infected article
may get the germ. These are some
of the ways in which tuberculosis
may be transferred.
No one knows just how many
cases are developed. The more im-
portant is the direct contact. For
instance, a tubercular person care-
essly coming in direct contact
with other persons in numerous
ways, may spread the .disease.
This is why it is so important to
find these cases early and take all
precautionary measures, against in-
fecting some healthy person.
It is well for every person to go
to their family physician regularly
and have a complete physical
checkup, for the usual 'danger sig-
lals of tuberculosis is tiredness,
ndigestion, loss of weight, a
chronic cough that hangs on in
.pie of all your efforts, and any
;hest pains that you cannot ac-
:ount for. Any of these -shocld be
hlecked by your family physician,
or tuberculosis is like a thief in
he night. We must, therefore, be
in the lookout for this enemy.
Few people are worried by feel-
ng a little tired occasionally or a
constant lazy feeling with possibly
indigestion, coughing, night sweats
nd loss of eight.
Tuberculosis is curable if dis-
overed early if you will consult
your physician early.
