Port St. Joe Now
Has Rotary and
Members of Panama City Organ
zations Aid In Formation
Of Units Here
Steps were taken last Friday by
a group of fifteen business and
professional men for the organize
tion of a Rotary club in Port St
Joe when they mat at the Por
Inn with B, S. Gordon, a membe,

O. Anderson, Basil E. Kenney, B.
B. Conklin, Louis Emrich, Richard
Porto:, M. P. Tomlinson, Kenneth
Creech, Robert Bellows, C. G. Cos-
tin and W. H. Wellington. These
men, each representing a different
classification of business or pro.
session, were brought together to
be the nucleus of a complete cross-
section of the economic life of the
community. The new club will
have its regular weekly meetings
at the Port Inn.
As soon as the club has been
admitted to membership in the in-
ternational organization its char-
ter will be delivered by the Pan-

governor. Delegations from nearby
Rotary clubs are expected to at-
tend this event.
Adding another civic club to the
city was the organization of a Ki-
wanis club Thursday evening of
last week at the Port Inn, forma-
tion of which had been under way
for some time past.
Honor guest at this meeting was
Congressman Bob Sikes of Crest-
view. Other guests were Messrs.
Morgan, Daffin and Holland of the
Panama City Kiwanis club.
The new organization has 1S
paid up members and it was ex-
pected that the membership would
be increased at a meeting held last

THE PEOPLE HAVE FAITH
The editor of The Star, in his recent 2086-
mile trip over the greater part of Florida, was
particularly impressed with the manner in
which residents of the so-called "boom sec-
tion" are building and improving in spite of
the debts hanging over their heads from the
boom days which, in reality, were brought
on by outside speculators.
The editor was impressed by the growth
and development in the east coast cities and
towns which indicated the faith the people
have in the future of their various localities,
which leads them to continue to sink their
money and labor into new developments.
One of those shrill yells we keep hearing
from the cheer leaders for the dictatorship
teams is the one that goes: "Democracy is
through, done, finished!"
This is a strange package to peddle to men
whose hard-won democratic way of living
has just got a good grip on life after centuries
of the tyranny which the totalitarian glamour
boys would swap us.:It's the sort of interna-
tional horse trade that makes people with
horse sense laugh.
Unlike the current crop of dictators with
their jaloppy utopias for sale, democracy
never hands its people a blueprint for the
millennium. It never writes a book called
"Mein Kampf" and says: "Here's all the an-
swers to all your questions. Take them-
or else" Democracy doesn't work like that.
Democracy finished? Not by a long shot-
Its the biggest piece of unfinished business
in the world!
U. S. STILL GETS GERMAN GOODS
While the wording "Made in Germany"
does not appear on goods displayed in Port
St. Joe as it formerly did, Nazi goods con-
tinue to come into the United States in fair
quantities. In January, 1941, 116 varieties of
German merchandise, valued at $512,432, ar-
rived at west coast ports. This does not in-
clude goods arriving in American boats from
South America, Brazil in particular, with Ger-
many as the original starting point. Nor
does it include imports originally sent from
Africa to South America via Italy's South At-
This means that for every purchase of'Nazi
goods over here, a United States customer is
making a down payment on a shell, a bomb
or a big gun to be turned against the British.
The editor of The Star urges every loyal
resident of Port St. Joe and Gulf county not
to purchase goods stamped with the words:
"Made in Germany." The battle Britain is
having to keep its own lifeline from being
snapped is grave enough without the Uniteu
States helping Germany to keep its trade

BANKS IN A NEW ROLE
Writing in "Banking," Albert W. Atwood
makes this observation: "Shakespeare said
that one man in his time plays many parts,
and so it is with the banks. Throughout the
long depression they absorbed the mounting
national debt, then as the defense program
got underway their lending function became
of vital importance, and now they have still
another great role to play. It is their privil-
ege and duty alike to educate and assist the
public to invest in the three new kinds of
United States savings bonds."
The banks are caking on this job purely
as a necessary public service in a time of un-
precedented spending. The banker knows the
dangers of inflation. He knows that thrift and
common sense must rule if we aren't going
to go on a spending spree that wM produce
the worst hangover in our history. He knows
that the worker who has a reserve fund in
the form of government bonds has a cushion
which both he and the country may require
in the future, when the war ends and tne
Thousands of banks are now selling the
new defense bonds, including the Florida
Bank at Port St. Joe. For those who are
unable to buy bonds now, inexpensive de-
fense stamps may be purchased and accumu-
lated until a total sufficient to obtain a bond
is reached. All of the stamps and bonds are
fully guaranteed by the U. S. treasury.
Visit your bank and investigate this method
of defense investment. A defense bond is a
safe place for your money-and each one
purchased helps build a barrier against in-
flation. Buy all you can.
I preach to you then, my countrymen, that
our country calls not for the life of ease, but
