At a special call meeting of the
board of city commissioners last
Friday afternoon the millage for
1940 was set at 9, one mill under
that of 1939.
The cut was made due to the
fact that $1000 remained from last
year in the bond interest and sink-

GERMANS ON THE MOVE IN THE BALKANS
'OE"?/VSP -' ;
Reports from Budapest say that upward of 300,000, Nazi troops are
passing into Slovakia and through Hungary to the southern border
of Rumania (1). The movement may be intended to checkmate Rus-
sia, which is said to be preparing to occupy Moldavia up to the
Siretul River (2). In this connection it is reported that German
engineers are directing the construction of successive defense lines
on the Pruth and Siretul rivers and in the Carpathian Mountains.
The Soviet apparently have closed the frontier at Galati (3). ihe
Germans also may be preparing to go through Bulgaria to attack
Greece. In the Greco-Italian hostilities the port of Valona (4) was
reported to have been again smashed with aerial bombs. Naples

1940 IS GONE
The old year 1940 has passed into history.
Its record, whether good or bad, has been
written. Contemplation may bring satisfac-
tion to some of us; to others it may recall
only opportunities that were lost, and ne-
glected chances. But whatever the situation,
1940 is done. It is gone. Forget it!
Turn your eyes towards the coming twelve
months. The yield of 1941 may be rich or
poor, largely depending upon what use we
make of it. The years have a habit of re-
turning to all of us just about what we put
into them. What kind of an investment are
you planning to make-service or selfishness?

MUSSOLINI WILL BE STOOGE
It is obvious that the purpose of British
strategy now is to eliminate Italy as a major
belligerent in the war. That thought unques-
tiionably underlay the recent British naval in-
vasion of the Adriatic Sea-a body of water
which Italy should be able to control with
ease. England is rapidly liquidating Italian
military influence in Africa.
There seems to be little doubt that Signor
Mussolini is on the down grade and that the
magnificent Fascist empire he envisioned has
small chance of being realized. II Duce has
but two alternatives, both of them unpleasant
from his point of view-he must either sur-
render to England, or ask that Hitler save
him. The first alternative is extremely un-
likely-Germany could not permit it without
risking a tremendous loss of prestige. The
second alternative means German domination
of Italy, which seems to be in the offing as
German troops in large numbers move east-
ward. The Italian people will not like that,
but there will be little they can do about it.
Reports say that Gestapo agents are already

AIRCRAFT MAKERS LEARNING LESSON
American aircraft makers and designers
are learning many a lesson from this war. The
planes sent to England have not been satis-
factory-that is, they have not been compar-
able in effectiveness to the first class British
and German ships. As one British authority
said, the Americans make first-class flying
machines, but third-class fighting machines.
Reason: According to the English, the Amer-
ican planes have been inadequately armored
and under-gunned, and have had too many
complicated controls to distract the attention
of nervous pilots confronted with the enemy.
These defects, according to officials, are
being corrected in the new ships. There will
be fewer blind spots, more armor, more guns
and fewer gadgets. Also, performance will be
materially stepped up. Some of the American
planes which have been publicized as 400-
mile-an-hour performers have, under war
loads and war conditions, done little better
than 300. It is taking time to iron the bugs
out of our newer type big- engines.
The British are now replacing their famous
Spitfire pursuit ships with a new type, which
is supposed to exceed 400 miles under full
load, is extremely maneuverable, and has an
unprecedentedly fast rate of climb. Rumors
say that the Germans also have some new
types of which great achievements are ex-
pected. The German problem is gasoline-
German planes downed in England were
found to carry gas of 50-octane content. That
is too poor a fuel to even turn over a modern
American engine of the 1000-horsepower
AGRICULTURE IS PREPARED
According to Secretary of Agriculture
Wlickward, agriculture is well prepared to
play its part in national defense. There are
adequate supplies of foodstuffs and plenty of
soil fertility to meet any call that may come
to the American farmer.
Agriculture's role in national defense is
vital. The nation is fortunate that its farmers
are so well able to do their job.
The recently proposed "double budget"
system-under wihch all regular federal ex-
penditures would be included in one budget,
and all extraordinary expenditures for de-
fense in another and sepaarte budget-may
be a step in the right direction. The proposal
involves balancing the regular budget in the
next fiscal year, and imposition of defense
taxes to amortize all borrowings for arm&.
ment over a fixed and definite period of years.

our personalities, our homes, our
community and our nation.
We can "do these things (1) By
continuing to learn, by keeping
ourselves well-informed, learning
to weigh and value information,
casting out that which would tend
to prejudice. (2) By making our
homes happy and efficiently oper-

world'. (3) By striving to upbuild
our community, co-operating with

Calm and a general lack of ex-
citement marked the arrival of
1941 in Port St. Joe with the local

in the city, much to the disap-
pointment of the younger folks,
but a goodly crowd gathered at
Beacon Inn on the beach to assist
in ushering in 1941.
