Keep Tooting Our

Horn Says Edwards


Urges People to Keep Up Constant
Hullabaloo About National
Defense Projects

W. T. Edwards, high executive
for the duPont interests in this
section, in a letter to the editor
of The Star commending the issue
of November 15 devoted to the ad-
vantages of Port St. Joe as a link
in the national defense program,
urges, that "the people should
keep up a constant hullabaloo about
these projects"-in other word's,
that we should continue to blow
our horn incessantly until the gov-
ernment finally becomes aware of
the fact that than Port St. Joe
there isn't a better location on the
Gulf Coast for a naval and air
base and the proposed tin process-
ing plant.
Mr. Edwards' letter follows:
Mr. W. S. Smith,
Editor The Star,
Port St. Joe, Florida.
Dear Mr. Smith-I want to con-
gratulate you upon your excellent
edition of November 15 which you
largely devoted to the proposal for
thd -establishment of the auxiliary
air and naval base and to the pro-
pogal to establish a government
tin smeltering plant at Port St.
Joe. Both of these things are en-
tirely feasible and' possible, and
no other location has the advant-
ages for these two projects which
are offered by Port St. Joe.
When I was In Washington dur-
ing the latter part of October,
some friehn's- of mine there told
me of what was going on in inner
government circles about the tin
smeltering plant, ahnd they -will
continue to help us at Port St.'Joe
to secure this and other desirable
projects for our town.
You and the people of Port St.
Joe should keep up a constant
hullabaloo about these projects so
that all and sundry will be re-
minded that Port St. Joe is on the
map and has a legitimate claim to
these things.
With all good' wishes, I am,
Yours, sincerely,
W. T. EDWARDS.

The spoken ,word is given scant attention;
the printed word is thoughtfully weighed.
The spoken word barely asserts; the printed
word thoroughly convinces. The spoken word
is lost; the printed word remains.

A HOLLOW NOTE SOUNDS
The Axis' spokesman continues to boast of
the dreadful doom that is about to befall Eng-
land and all other powers which dare to op-
pose German-Italian-Japanese ambitions to
create a new and revolutionary "world or-
der." But in all this boasting there is a hol-
low and discordant note, for the fact stands
out like a sore thumb that the dictators lately
are winning most of their battles on paper in-
stead of the field of action.
The war, in other words, "ain't goin' sc~
good" from the viewpoint of Hitler and Mus-
solini. Looks as though Hit has given up the
idea of invading England-a move which, ac-
cording to his original calendar of dates, was
to have been completed months ago. The air
raids continue, and do much damage, but from
over here it looks like it will take more than
that to break the morale of a proud and de-
termined people. And in the meantime Eng-
land is building up her air force to a point
where it won't be long before the R. A. F.
will be doing similar damage in Berlin.
The big joke of the war is Italy. Her at-
tempted invasion of Greece by the'blitzkreig
method has been a fiasco. Such tactics are
worthless in a rugged, mountainous country:
Greece can't hold out indefinitely against
Italy, but if Mussolini's legions do come out
victorious it will be at great cost, in prestige
no less than in men and material. And in the
meantime, England has beei able to establish
air and naval bases on the Greek islands
which are of immense importance in cement-
ing her hold on the Mediterranean. Looks
like Hit should drop Muss cold as a partner,
for he must keep supplying Italy with ma-
terials which he could use to advantage in
his own backyard.
The next showdown probably will come in
Africa, for the Axis must conquer Africa as
a main step in its program for destroying
the life-line of the British Empire.
Also watch the Far East. There is quiet
on the surface there at present, but there is
turbulence underenath. Japan has been with-
drawing large numbers of troops from China,
possibly for an attempted foray against the
Dutch East Indies and French Indo-China, or
maybe against the Philippines. But this last
premise is far-fetched, for Japan isn't yet in
a position to provoke us into war.
Looks like Germany, Italy and Japan arc
beating the war drums and rattling the sword
in the scabbard merely for the purpose of bol-
stering their own courage.

There is all the more reason for
the surviving free peoples to keep their eyes
open when new assurances come from Berlin,
Rome or Tokyo. Whoever imagines that Hit-
ler's 'new order' offers any basis for peace is
shutting his eyes as disastrously as the Poles
and Norwegians, the Dutch and Belgians, the
French and British who once trusted in his
promises. No amount of planes and guris
and tanks will defend us unless awareness
goes constantly with them."-The New York
Times.

If the 1941 Florida legislature will repeal
more than it enacts everybody will endorse
it as a wise law-making body.


NEVER FORGET
Today we are witnessing an attempted
world revolution. The purpose of Nazism,
Fascism and Communism are, basically, to de-
stroy the established economic and social or-
ders of the world and to put in their place
an entirely different order.
In attaining that revolutionary. goal, the
first step invariably taken by the total gov-
ernnments, when seizing power in their own
countries, has been to take over- all sources
of credit-to take control 'of money out of
private hands and place it in the hands of
the ruling clique. The dictators realize that
whoever controls a nation's money and credit
controls that nation in every phase of its lite.
There is a lesson in this for the Unitea
States. Under our system the people control
their money. Those who take care of it for
them, such as the banks, are simply the peo-
ple's fiscal servants and are subject to strin.
gent public regulation. That system has
worked. It is the system of a free and sover-
eign people.
We have heard people talking of changing
this system and give government a greater
control over the nation's money and credit.
But if this were to happen, the only possible
end would be economic dictatorship-to be
followed in due course by social, dictatorship.
Those may be hard words-but Europe has
shown us how true they are. Let them not
be forgotten here.

GAMBLING
Undoubtedly the 1941 legislative session
will be asked to adopt gambling legislation
of some type or other, and just as sure is it
that such revenue, if found, would be shunted
as a sop to aged and infirm in order to legal-
ize the spinning of wheels and click of dice.
Granting the urgent.need of revenue in the
state, unless some miraculous tax reform is
found, gamblers will find hard sledding when
it comes to legalizing their trade. Holland's
.senatorial history shows him as a bitter
enemy of legalized gaming; many legislators'
are too fearful of the church vote to override
a gaming bill veto. But, on the other.hand,
the racing bill passed'that way inr 1931.

Herbert Hoover is raising ai great hullaba-
loo about feeding the starving Belgians, Ho-
landers and French and is asking, that th
American people give prompt aid. Coming
from someone else, outside of the fact that
any foodstuffs sent to Europe would be taken
by Herr Hitler and his boys, this might be
taken under consideration, but it seems to us
that during Mr. Hoover's administration as s
president he called out the marines and the a
army to rout a large group of ragged and a
starving American World War veterans at 1
Washington. Sure, aid for Starving Europe a
but to hell with starving Americans. i

we've always had such important business

to increase to the point where we could hear it.

The Low Down
from
Willis Swamp

Editor The Star:
When you lay down your paper
after reading' what's goin' on here
nd everywhere, it ain't so easy
o decide if the country is headin'
forwards or backwards.
But it ain't no time to give up
ie ghost. Our grandpappy had a
tougher time-he dodged toma-
awks-but he didn't quit.
We got a grand country here-
*e're jist down in the mouth. We
een talked into confusion and
oubt. We've lost our vim. The
>lks we been election' have been
ood at palaver. We been talked
ito bein' a leanin' outfit-almost.
Some folks now think one thing,
nd some another, about what this
ere country needs-and that's a


good sign. When any country ac-
tually finds out that things are
kinda goin' haywire and that
everything ain't turned out to be
milk and honey, like they said it
would, then that there country is
makn' headway.
If I was to come right out and
say what we need most in our D.
S. A., it is a national "Think for
Yourself Weel" where everybody
takes his foot off the accelerator
for a couple days and ponder.
Yours with the low down,
JO SERRA.

THANKSGIVING
The students of St. Joe High and
the students of all other schools
don't realize ho.w thankful they
should be this Thanksgiving.
While we are having turkey, anA
all the trimming's in our country,
the children of countries in Eu-
rope are waiting in the breadline
for their share.
A lot of us gripe because we
have to go to school, but the chil-
Iren in the warring European
countries gripe because they can't
go to' school. We know this is hart,
to believe, but it is true, neverthe-
less. We should realize the appor-
tunities offered to us each day
and take advantage of them. We
are, indeed, fortunate to live in a
country where we have these op-
portunities.
If we keep these things in mind
we're sure we will show better
school spirit in the future and
show that we are thankful for
dear old St. Joe High!

SOPCHOPPY LOSES TO SHARKS
Our game last Friday with Sop-
choppy was another victory for
the Sharks, the game being the
best one to date. As you remem-
ber, our last game with Sopchoppy
is still undecided, but the. score of
this game Is definitely 'a victory
for the Sharks, the score being
24 to 6.
All those who attended the game
are sure that we have a winning
team and those who did not view
this game just have to listen to a
few conversations and.they'll als6
be convinced.

GOSSIP
We wonder why Buck Walters
is so anxious for Christmas to
come. Anne must be coming.
We wonder how Miss Arnold
dances. Could J. L. or E. M. tell
us?
We have been told that Buck P.
is a good dancer. How about it,
Bernice.
We wonder why Talmon S. is so
interested in practicing the junior
play? Could it be that he has a
very romantic part?
It seems that the boys like girl-
break dances better than they do
boy-break dances. Could it be that
they're bashful? (Could be.)
