Film Tells of Young Couple With
A Small Income and How
They Got Their Home

"Design for Happiness," the
story of a:young. couple with 'a
small income and big 'dreams of
home ownership,, Is the title of the
Technicolor short to be shown at
the Port theatre Wednesday only.
Young Bob Martin, his wife and,
baby and their dog are examined
by "Design for Happiness." On $25
per week income they dream of
owning their own home. Bob has
serious doubts that it can be done,
but Nancy, having learned about
the FHA plan for paying for a
small home at the rate of less than
a dollar per day, sets out to prove
to Bob that it can be done.
This short subject is described
as an "informative document" with
more truth than fiction. It is nar-
rated by Lowelll Thomas.
See this film and then see your

Your Income Tax
Personal Exemptions and Credit
For Dependents


Domestic relations enter into
the making of an income tax re-
turn. This shows itrsir' the mat-
ter of personal exemptions. Too
many taxpayers do not understand
who is legally the head of a fam-
ily, or what is a dependent. As a
consequence, they overpay the
government by not claiming their
proper exemptions and credits. 01
course, the audit of their returns
discloses most of these errors, but
not all, due to negligence or lack
of understanding of the tax law
and regulations.

Pipeline Hear'iE.l


Is d This Week


Before Ga. Sr


Case Is of Vital Interest to
Port St. Joe As Gulf
Terminal of Line

The long-heralded Southeastern
pipe line hearing was launched
Tuesday, in the Georgia house of
representatives before a throng so
large it packed the aisles and gal-
leries and temporarily delayed the
proceedings.
The hearing, before s. house ju-
diciary committee, was on the
question of a bill granting pipe
lines the right of eminent domain,
permitting them to cross public and
private property, and is of vital
interest to Port St. Joe as this city
is the Gulf terminal of the line.
The line is complete from this
city to Chattanooga, Tenn., except
for 20 miles under public highways
and railroads in Georgia and was
constructed between the time the
Georgia general assembly author-
ized it in 1938 by an overwhelm-
ing vote and a supreme court rul-
ing that .halted it. In a special ses-
sion and! the ne_ regularr session
of the legislature, no effort to re-
peal the law was, made, but when
the line reached P -'-rdr0. it
was blocked 'n court by a woman
employee of the Seaboard railroad,
according to testimony brought
out 'Tuesday.
Representatives of the South-
eastern Pipe Line company stated
that pipe lines represent progress,
the same as trains when compared
to stage coaches. They used to
haul oil in barrels, stored in box
cars until the oil companies
switched to tank cars to cut down
the cost to consumers.

OUR BAND
Yes, we have a band-and we believe we have a good band-but
like anything worthwhile, it takes time,, trouble, and usually one
other important factor-money. Yes our band needs money-
not only now, but always-but right now we are in desperate
need of that important factor. Let's not be like the friends of
the little red hen who, when asked to help plant the seed re-
fused-and who, when asked to help till the soil and cultivate
the grain, again refused-and when asked to help gather the
crop, refused-but when asked to partake of the bread, the fruit
of the crop, they were all willing and anxious to do that. So
when asked to support the band-and you refuse-don't expect
to feel that you can fully enjoy the music, and the thrill of
the parade when you hear the beat of the drum and the sound
of the trumpet. So do your part and help the band-
firsEt by seeing our show Wednesday night, March 5. at the
Port Theatre, and on the same billing with "Maisie Was a
Lady," starring Ann Sothern and Lew Ayres. Third, well-known
series of pictures has been well received throughout the land
and should in itself be a drawing card for picture lovers. The
Band show will consist of a Radio Skit featuring soloists and
humorous entertainers, and a Musical Comedy featuring all
blackface acted, which will be enjoyed by the whole family.
Don't fail to see this show! Another way you can help the band
is to attend the dance at the Centennial'Building Saturday night
being sponsored by the International Brotherhood of Machinists.
And another-and a most important one-buy a band tag if
you have not already done so.
DON'T FORGET THE DATE-Wednesday, March 5-at the
Port Theatre. Come see your band and feel the thrill of posses-
sion in the youngsters of our city.

Marriage Mix-Up
Basis of Comedy

Lombard and Montgomery Teamed
In Gay Modern Farce With
Romantic Trimmings
Coming back with a bang to
high-speed mirth-making after re-
cent dramatic successes, Carole
Lombard and Robert Montgomery
are co-starred in "Mr. and Mrs.
Smith," playing Sunday and Mon-
day at the Port theatre, which is
hailed as the outstanding comedy
offering of the season, and which
teams the two favorites for the
first time.
The picture presents Montgom-
ery as David Smith, a prosperous
New York attorney, and Miss Lom-
bard as his wife of three years'
stormy standing. Their frequent
quarrels are automatically con-
cluded by a mutual rule that both
parties must remain in their bed-
room until they have made up.
This process works admirably
until David learns that because of
an error in a land survey their
marriage was illegal, and that he
and Ann are each free to marry
anyone. David's ill-timed sense of
humor leads him to conceal the
discovery, and this infuriates Ann
who makes up her mind she won't
remarry him.
Avoiding David's frantic efforts
at reconciliation, Ann begins see-
ing a good deal of David's. law
partner, Jeff Custer, and this leads
to faster and funnier complica-
tions, especially when Jeff's strait-
laced Southern parents take a
hand in the affair

ATTITUDE OF THE PEOPLE CHANGES
In future years, historians will record the
swift changes that took.place in the temper
and attitude of the American people and
their leaders during 1940 and 1941. Looking
back now on the months that followed the
outbreak of World War II, it seems as if we
lived then in another world. The majority of
the people wanted neutrality-and they
wanted no part of Europe's newest mess.
They wanted to avoid the risk of war at all
costs. And the statesmen .-who represented
them felt the same way.
Today the polls show that we still \want to
]eep out of war-but that a considerable ma-
jority, despite that, favor lihlping England to
the fullest extent. No one talks of neutrality
-it is as (lead as Moses. The cash-and-carry
policy has been virtually forgotten-it is per-
fectly clear that every financial resource will
be used to help arm Britain no less than our-
selves. The American people, in short, are
violently partisan, and the American nation
is definitely and irretrievably involved in the
war.
What has caused this change? It took us
almost three years to become really anti-
Qerman in the last war-it took us less than
a year this time. Better communication, both
verbal and visual, has been a factor. So has
the amazing courage of the British people-
the American like and respond to any display
of bravery against odds. Most important, in
all probabillity, has been the tast-growing
feeling that our destiny and Britain's are in-
termixed and inseparable, and that if Britain
falls we will be in grave danger.
There are those who stoutly belie this
doctrine, but they are much in the minority.
The president obviously thinks that Britain
is figthing for us as well as for herself. So
do most members of congress. So do the bulk
of the leading commentators. So does a long
list of newspapers.-That is why opposition to
the lend-lease bill has made so little progress.
There just isn't enough support behind it.
Last chance of defeating or modifying the
bill-and at best it was an extremely faril
chance-died when Wendell '. 1III-i. took the
stand. His trip to England, in which he
crammed months of visiting, talking and in-
,-~ -ii .:-;, into a few days and nights, was
a dramatic pilgrimage. So when he said he
was 100 per cent in favor of the bill, with cer-
tain modifications, and went even farther
than the president in some respects (by sug-
gesting that we give Britain outright de-


stroyers and army bombers) the die was cast.
The two men who were given the votes of
close to 50,000,000 Americans in their race
for the presidency, and x;:ho stand out head
and shoulders above any other national fig-
ures of this day, believe that England's fate
alid our fate cannot be separated. There is no
doubt of their sincerity, even as there is no
doubt of the sincerity of those who still hold
to a different and opposed point of view. And
there is no doubt that this country is com-
mitted to the hilt to the policy for which
Roosevelt and Willkie stand.
Today millions of Americans hate Hitler
and what he represents with an almost per-
sonal hatred. For Mussolini they have coi,-
tempt and laughter. These millions of Amer-
icans feel that the dictators are their enemies
just as they are England's enemies. The old
crimes and mistakes of imperial England have
been forgotten. And in the opinion of many
a thoughtful student, we ourselves are about
to embark,, from necessity, on an unprece-
dented imperial policy of our own.-Indus-
trial News Review.

si TABLOID PAPERS MOST POPULAR
Tabloid newspapers similar to The Star
are popular with advertising men, if the opin-
ions of members of the Pacific Coast Adver-
tising Clubs association micmbers count foi-
anything.
At a re ent get-together of leading figures
in advertising. from Alaska to Mexico and ;
few from the East, opinions were solicited
and these experts favored the tabloid. They-
stated the tabloid size paper was sweeping
all states in the Union and that advertisers
liked it because it had been found that a quar-
ter-page ad showed up better than a like
size space in a standard sheet because it had
less to compete with.
kasier-to-handle qualities of the tabloid
were also stressed. It was pointed out that
readers do not get lost, and in a larger page
there is more tendency to miss,some import-
ant news hidden in a crowd of items.

The Brunswick News claims it was a Geor-
gia youth who mailed his girl two letters a
day during a long stay out of town and re-
turned to find her married to the postman.
-Savannah News.

Mussolini is crying bitterly that he was
forced to go to war before he was fully pre-
pared. If we remember rightly, a couple oi
years ago he averred that Italy was in shape
to lick the world if necessary.

French Indo-China guerrillas invaded Thai-
land on a bicycle, three horses and two ele-
phants. Well, we don't seem to have any
tanks either.-Hartford Courant.

As snow falls in the United States, people
go sleighing. In Europe, as the snow falls,
they continue slaying.

Inflation or not, the national debt keeps
on hitting a new high every time congress
meets.

A man is contented with his lot if he in-
tends to build on it.

Keep smiling!
