The spoken word is .given scant attention;

The spokefl word barely asserts; the printed
word thoroughly convinces. The spoken word
is lost; the printed word remains.

DON'T SQUANDER TAX MONEY NOW
The current world crisis, which has come
home with a bang to the United States,
should have at least one beneficial effect-
and that is to discourage the proponents of
certain costly, unnecessary and highly du-
bious political schemes.
One such scheme is the Florida cross-state
canal project, whereby the United States
government would spend a hundred million
dollars for inland water transport facilities
which, according to data compiled, would not
be used to any great extent by present car-.
tiers and which, if it was used to the extent
claimed by its proponents, would simply di-
vert business from existing carriers.
According to a dispassionate survey, the
Florida canal project would result in cheaper
transportation only if a large part of the cost
were charged off to other purposes-only, in
other words, if the government subsidized
the business-with the taxpayers' money.
We need the Florida cross-state canal
about as much as a cat needs five legs. Even
in times of world peace and bounding pros-
.perity, it is doubtful if we could afford such
projects. Certainly we can't afford them now,
when every possible tax nickel must be
turned to national defense.


WAR HITS THE SOUTH
The loss of American export trade threat-
ens to make us all, either directly or indi-
rectly, economic victims of the war in Eu-
rope. Foreign markets for cotton, tobacco
and naval stores have dwindled, and unless
Southern farmers turn to crop diversification
on an unprecedented scale, the future will be
dark indeed.
We do not lean to pessimism, but facts are
facts, no matter how unpleasant, and It we
do not face them they have a way of con-
fronting us with added force. An economic
storm is piling up the clouds on our horizon;
to ignore it and fail to seek shelter would be
folly.
Cold, hard government figures tell the
story of what is happening today and what
will transpire tomorrow. Cotton production
'totaled 11,817,000 bales last year, with the
export market absorbing apparently half of
the crop. Most of this trade was with Euro-
pean nations. Current federal crop estimates
point to a crop just as large as last year's and
even to a light increase. How much cotton
can we expect to sell to Europe today?
In normal times, 40 per cent of the South's
flue-cured tobacco goes abroad, largely to
England. We already have been warned that
Imperial Tobacco, the company which con-
tracts for the better grade of bright leaf to-
bacco for English cigarets, will have no
buyers at the.auction sales getting under way
in Georgia next month.
SNearly half of the 1,709,157 barrels of rosin
produced in 1937 went abroad, mostly to the
United Kingdom. Today Britain is virtually
out of the American haval stores market, and
mounting shipping costs have ,further de-
pressed prices and export volume.
For years the most farsighted Southern
leaders have urged crop diversification. The
importance of dairying, livestock production
and poultry farming was never greater-the
need was never more urgent-than today.--

Tire Dealer Gives

Hints for Vacation

Personal Comfort In Touring Is
Most Important for Pleas-
ant Vacation


According to J. J. Darcey, Jr.,
manager of the Texaco Service
Station, local distributors for tme
famous Firestone tires, motorists
are "Seeing America First" this
year. The approach of the peak of
the summer vacation period indi-
cates that automobile tourist
travel will set a new'recorn cur-
ing the 1940 summer season.
"Provision for personal comfort
in touring," opines Mr. Darcey,
"is one of the most important re-
quirements for a pleasant, care-
free.vacation. It's wise to choose
loose' donifortable clothes. Some
people make it a rule to eat very
lightly while traveling by car and
to- postpone the heavy meals until
the .evening. Sun glasses, are on
many people's 'must'.'list. They
protect .'against r.od glare and
headaches. Many motorists carry
a. small toilet kit with soap, wash
cloth "a.d towels, so they can
freslren up frequently during hot,
dusty weather. ".*1,
"In the interest of safety, tires
should be carefully checked for

tires are badly worn, it is best to
replace them with new ones,
especially in view of the current
low tire prices.
"Jobs like changing tires, clean-
ing spark plugs and replacing
.broken fan belts often ruin a day's
travel when they are done on the
highway," concluded Mr. Darcey.
"A checkup before starting may
save much annoyance on the way.
