1940 City Taxes

Are Delinquent

Next Tuesday

One Per Cent Will Be Added Each
Month Thereafter; Collections
Are Good, Says City Clerk

April 1 is the deadline for pay-
ment of 1940 city of Port St. Joe

for late payment, it was announced
yesterday by City Clerk M. P.
Tomlinson. Taxes for 1940 were
due and. payable January 1, when
a, discount was allowed, but after
next Tuesday the net tax plus a
penalty of 1 per cent a month
will be collected.
Clerk Tomlinson states that col-
lections are exceptionally good-
that 96.5 per cent of all 1938 taxes
has 'been collected, leaving a bal-
ance of but $350 on the books, and
that 91.3 per cent of 1939 taxes has
been collected, leaving buit $1,484
outstanding.
Gross valuation of real estate
and improvements in the city
amounts to $2,140,365 and personal

ing a total of $2,404,985. Of this
$480,980 is listed as homesteads,

$3,500 is listed under other statu-
tory exemptions, leaving a grand
total of taxable valuation for 1940
of $l,75S,145.
"Non-payment of taxes when diue
works a hardship odfthose who do
pay and those who don't 'pay ,
said Mr. TomUiqson, "and it .9*ery
property owner would payl hi
taxes promptly, without iLuurring...
penalties, it'would allow the city
to reduce the mllage with a con-
sequdnit savi'rig to all?'

EXACTLY WHERE WE STAND
If a vestige of doubt remained in any mind
as to this country's position in the current
world struggle for power, the president's
speech at the White .louse Correspondents
association dinner should have dissipated it.
There was no humor in the president's voice.
There were no light touches. He had grave
words to say, and he said them gravely.
SThat speech, coming hard on the heels of
congress' approval of the lend-lease bill, made
our policy clear as crystal-we are out to de-
stroy dictatorship, and the entire resources
of this nation will be spent freely to that, end.
Mr. Roosevelt denounced the Nazis by name.
He accused them of seeking the destruction
of elective systems of government on every
continent, including our own. He accused
them of seeking to stir up controversies and
to create disunion within all democracies, in-
clulding our own. And he said that they would
fail-that the would-be conquerors will find
that the forces of democracy, though they
may move slowly, will in the end be supreme.
Our policy has been finally established, the
debate is over, and now the real job begins-
to make and supply the weapons Great Brit-
ain, Greece and China must have.

It's hard for a woman to understand why
a man goes daffy over a baseball game and
never pays niuch attention to a wedding.

looking over color charts and figuring on re-
painting- the house, inside and out-if they
can find the ,time. And those weeds in the
yard ought to be cut-but we can do that to--
morrow.
With all of this latent energy lying dor-
mant, something ought to be done about it,
and about the best thing is for all of us to
get together and have a city-wvide clean-up,
paint-up and fix-up campaign. .
Such a campaign would make Port St. Joe
a much handsomer town, and a safer town.
Vacant lots would be mowed, rubbish would
be cleaned up and dead bushes uprooted, all

Bonnie Baker Does

'Vocal Strip Tease'


Studio Censor On Guard to See
That Bonnie's Singing Won't
Cause Temperatures to Rise

When Bonnie Baker lifts her
voice in song in Paramount's com-
edy, 'Youire the One," the saucy
little singer actually is doing a
"vocal strip tease." This descrip-
tion was applied to Bonnie's provo-
cative singing style by Luigi Lur-
aschi, Paramount's studio censor.
The famed, "Oh. Johnny" girl,
who makes her. movie debut with
Orrin Tucker and his orchestra in
"You're the One," playing Tues-
day at the Port theatre, protested
to Luraschi that she wasn't trying
to make her singing spicy. Bon-
nrie, who won national fame on
radio's Hit Parade, sings in a baby
voice that is plenty provocative.
Nevertheless, the censor was on
guard to see that Bonnie's singing
wasn't the kind. to cause tempera-
tures to go up unduly.
"If we were to let Bonnie sing
her songs on the screen as she
does on her records," ruled. Lur-
a-schii, "we'd never get the picture
past the Hays office. 'ii.
than we could get a visual strip
tease across. Bonnie does things
with her voice which fan dancers


d'o with, fans.'!
SThe cast: also includes.. Lilian
Cornell, Jerry Colonna, Edward
Everett Horton and Teddy Hart.
