WOE, THE POOR LEGISLATOR
With the next session of the legislature
just around the corner, all kinds of proposed
bills and measures are being talked and the
members of our state law-making body will
have afflictions that would make the boils ot
Job look like mosquito bites.
As far as the general revenue fund is con-
cerned, the state is insolvent, what with ad-
valorem taxes abolished and many legislators
pledged to repeal other taxes, and with school
funds low and road funds depleted, it's ap-
parent that there must be a general revision
of the tax structure.
The federal government, pouring millions
into the state with its defense program, is
demanding in no uncertain terms the immedi-
ate construction of roads to care for these
camps and air bases. At the same time every
county in the state is demanding roads which
they consider imperative. The schools do not
intend to be shoved into the background and
probably will make a lot of noise during the
session. The "big" and "little" counties will
be in there scrapping like nobody's business.
Proponents of a sales tax see a golden oppor-
tunity as things stand now and are hopeful;
that the tax can be put over at the coming
session. Bond holders want their money and
are prepared to fight for it. Advocates of
old age assistance are searching their files
for pledges of legislators who, during the heat

BASEBALL
Plans for a high school baseball
team are underway. This will be
the first year that Port St. Joe
has tried to have a high school
team. If it can be arranged, the
team will use the suits of the Am-
erican Legion junior team.
Practice will begin Monday and
we hope that everyone possible
will be out to support us.

EXAMS ARE OVER
Well, at last our dreaded exams
are over. We can breathe easy for
another two months now (we
hope). We were rewarded for our
strenuous studying by a three-day
vacation as the. teachers are at-
tending conference at Tampa. Now
our only worry is getting our pa-
pers back with good grades. This
won't be easy, for many, I fear
(me for one). Well, anyway, the
junior class sympathizes with each
and every one.

OUR INTEREST IN THE PIPELINE
The oil pipe line connecting Port St. Joe,
Fla., and Chattanooga, Tenn., lies mostly in
Georgia, but interests the whole nation. Flor-
ida's interest is second to none. Therefore,
we are deeply interested in the legal techni-
cality that is hindering the construction of
the last 21 miles of the line, which will put
it into operation, says the Holmes County
Advertiser.
The construction of these lines under rail-
roads and highways has been enjoined by
courts because of a technical commission in
the legislation which authorized the construc-,
tion of this line and which is to transport gas- i
oline from the Texas and Mexican oil fields
and refineries shipped in: tankers to Port St.
Joe. This would add largely to the import-
ance of our coastal development. It would
not only be a boost for Port St. Joe in its
shipping, but will probably develop into other
lines transporting- crude and fuel oil also.
That will certainly lead to industrial developed
ment all along the line.
Right now a new value is found in this im-
portant project. It is an important link in our
national defense plans. Gulf and coastal
canal shipping will bring vast oil supplies
cheaply into the very heart of the nation. It
now remains to be seen whether the action,
of the Georgia state legislature in refusing to,
correct the legislation and permit completion
of the project can stand against national in-
terest and local welfare. To be sure, it is
backed by the railroads and vast highway
transportation interests which would lose
some business to the pipe line, but what are
these when opposed to national economic and
industrial welfare, or national security in the
face of a possible world war?
Our geographical position entitles us to this


The Low Down
from
Willis Swamp

Editor The Star:
I bin reading' where there is talk
about raisin' the speed limits to
65 per hour in California. It's now
45-just a snail's, pace. They sure
are slow pokes, those Native Sons
-only 45 miles-imagine!
But you can stand, alongisdie a
busy highway and you'll see, at 45,
how you'll clutch at your old sky
piece. At 65, you'd be as feather-
less as a chicken after a cyclone.
According' to the 1940 census
they had, a big increase in popula-
tion in California. Maybe it is
something like rabbits-you can
have too many. With a 65 limit
they may be figurin' on solvin'
their problem-automatic.
But we bin talking' about it here
in the Swamp and one of the
boys, Clark, he says a feller told
him that this here 65 idea is bein'
sponsored by the coffin fellers.
But I don't know. It might be the
tow car people, or it might even
be the embalmers-you can't tell.

It's "Kiteflying" Time


so... LET'S BE CAREFUL


Here are a few important things to
remember while flying kites:


1. DON'T fly your kites near electric
lines.
2. USE ONLY plain dry cotton string.
(Wire, tinsel-wrapped string, and
wet string are conductors of elec-
tricity and contact with electric wire
may cause serious or fatal injury)
3. DON'T RUN on or across highways
or streets when you are flying kites
4. DON'T CLIMB poles or throw
rocks to dislodge entangled kites.
