Local Power Corporation Manager
Tells What To Do During
R. G. Porter, local manager for'
the Florida Power corporation,
offered the following comments
made recently by Dr. Karl
McEachron, head of General EleC-
tric's 'engineering laboratory, re-
garding lVghitning .dangers:
In answer to the old belief thai
lightning never strikes in' the
same place twice, Dt. McEachron
points out the studies being car-
ried out by General Electric's high-
voltage engineers. He reports that
the Empire State Building in New
York City is struck 40 and 50
He gives some advice to the
housewife and suggests the fol-
"Stay away from the piano. Do
not take a bath or shower turning
a lightning storm. A needle will
not attract lightning, but do not
use an electric sewing machine
during a storm."
In explaining some of lightning's
pranks, Dr. McEachron said that
theie are two types of lightning,
one which travels very fast and
the other which is relatively slow.
The bolts which ignite fires are
of the latter variety, while the
fast strokes .splinter trees, teai
apart homes and do more damage?
IH' cited an instance where a
housewife had the materials for
a fire lying in a stove, andi light-
ning struck the home and started
a fire in the stove. This type, ac-
cording to the speaker, was of the
slow traveling variety.
To swimmers Dr. McEachron
says: "Stay out of water during
an electrical storm."
Mr. Porter also pointed out that
severe lightning storms in this
area occasionally coused service
interruptions oper which. there is
no control. The company's record
of outages, however, is excep-
tionally good, considering the dam-
age caused' to the lines by light-

112 Lose Drivers'
Licenses In July
Drunken Driving Accounts for 90
Per Cent of Revocations
W. F. Reid, of Tallahassee, di-
rector of the department of public
safety, reported this week that 112
drivers' licenses were revoked, dur-
ing July and 39 drivers' licenses
were suspended. The total num-
6er of licenses revoked and sius-
pended since the drivers' license
law became effective last October
amounts to 1,012, Director Reid
In the July list of revocations

of 14; Pinellas county was second

Records of the department of
public safety show that the seri-
ousness of drunken driving cair-
not be overemphasized, Director
Reid -said. More than 675 drivers
have lost their privilege of operaZ-
ing their motor vehicles on OU0
public highways since last October
because they endangered the lives
of their fellow motorists by trying
to drive their cars when they were
under the influence of liquor and
couldn't even walk straight.
The department receives many
applications, supported by plea
of prominent politicians, lawyers
and business men, for the reit,
statement of drivers' licenses that
have been revoked, Reid stated.
Some of the cases presented show
that the offending drivers will lose
good jobs and their families will
suffer if the revocations are al-
lowed to stand. But, he pointed out,
the law maies license revocation
mandatory in the case of drunken
driving and does not make any
provision for reins-itement.

WHO'S GOING TO SACRIFICE WHAT?
The American people, driven by the need
for military security, must build a military
establishment costly beyond all precedents.
An incredible proportion of the national in,
come must be taken from the pockets of the
people and diverted to government, and we
jn Port St. Joe, along with the rest of the
country, will feel the heavy hand of taxation.
All of us will have fewer luxuries. All of us
must conserve. All of us must sacrifice.
That is clear enough and reasonable
enough. But it has become tragically plain
-that a very substantial portion of the Amen-
can people have the idea that the other fel-
low should make most, if not all of the sacri-
fices. It's the other fellow's standard of living
which should suffer, not their own. It's the
other fellow who should, pay the bill and do
the work, while they go on much as they
Certain influential segments of labor, for
instance, "demand that industry must sacrifice
more of its profits in the interests of labor.
A certain segment of industry works to re-
duce the share that goes to labor, and it
works to get more bounty for itself out ot
government in one way or another. It too
believes in sacrifice-so long as the other fel-
low does it.
Those who have gone on government re-
lief as a career favor sacrifice, too-so long
as it doesn't touch relief appropriations.
Powerful influences demand that not one
nickel of this "relief" be eliminated, no mat-
.ter how much others sacrifice to pay it, or
how dire the menace the country faces.
The professional politicians talk much of
sacrifice, in noble words. But it's a rare poli-
tician who is willing to sacrifice one thin
dime of patronage that might cost a vote, to
support a principle. Money still goes out for
government credit schemes of all kinds, and
for a thousand and one purposes which are
in no way a true function of government, but
which are prolific sources of votes and power.
The self-seeking hand of politics handicaps a
real defense program which would get maxl-

mum results with a minimum of waste of
time and money.
Who is going to sacrifice what?
That is the question America faces today,
if national security is to be a reality, not a
mirage. The answer is plain. All must sacri-
fice, all must contribute their full share. The
other fellow isn't going to do it for us.
Selfish interests now at play in America,
whether they be in labor, industry or gov-
ernment, are among the fifth columnists
within our gates.
NEW TAXES COMING
For the sake of national defense, Wash-
ington is considering one of the knottiest
problems-where the money is coming from
to build the thousands of airplanes and guns
and tanks and ships which are needed to
make the nation invulnerable to attack.
In the first place, the government must
borrow the money to buy most of the equip-
ment because for years it has lived above its
head. In other words, even without national
defense it has been spending more than it
took in. And on national defense it hasn't
even been keeping up with the Joneses, not
to mention Hitler and Mussolini.
So, in addition to the just-enacted national
defense taxes, new taxes are being talked
of. They probably will not materialize until
after the November election, but they will
