FREEDOM OF SEAS GUARANTEED BY
U. S. SEIZURE OF ICELAND
The occupation of Iceland by United States
naval forces makes the further steps neces-
sary to be taken to win the battle of the At-
lantic close at hand.
In the most daring and timely move since
patrol work in the Atlantic was introduced,
United States marines relieved British occu-
pants at the important northern base and pre-
pared to take all shooting risks to insure the
island's defense. United States officials have
assured, and it seems reasonable, that the sea
lanes will be kept clear in that area.
The United States navy is expected, by this
move, to drive all German raiders from the
seas between Iceland and eastern United
States ports. It is the best guarantee to keep
Germany from tiptoeing westward since the
trade of fifty destroyers for British naval and
air bases. The United States has beaten Ger-
many to the draw. Germany cannot and will
not be permitted to take one more step, small
-, ; min-lt be, toward this hemisphere.
"-- '.T1.iT ..'. .7F :l thi- importance .-.f tll1 .:7.:
cupation of Iceland for the defense of this
hemisphere, the aid to Britain in forestalling
an invasion is incalculable. It is welcome
news to the British that an armed force ot
around 50,000 to 60,000 troops, that may well
be used in the defense of England, can noxw
return home. Since the United States will
finally take over the defense of Iceland, these
troops will be available for fighting else-
where.
It is admitted that the occupation of Ice-
land brings the United States closer to a
shooting war. The importance of Iceland as
a spot from which to launch a naval war on
Germany is unquestioned. And if Germany
accepts the issue, Germany's true intentions
toward the United States may 'soon be
brought out into the open.
The occupation means, simply, that the
United States is now prepared to take over
the main problems of shipping over the route
between Halifax, New York, Boston and Ice-
land. That will be a great responsibility, but
our navy is ready to accept it. The United
States is prepared to accept losses; along with
Britain, and those losses may come at any
time. The United States is risking war so that
aid to Britain and the freedom of the seas
will be guaranteed, but in doing so is taking
the cheapest and most certain method of as-
suring its future security and gaining time to
prepare its home defenses.

WELCOME TO OUR CITY
The Star extends a cordial welcome to the
Port St. Joe Kiwanis club which last night
received its charter from the hands of Dis-
trict Governor Frank Wright. To the officers
we offer our congratulations. We offer, too,
our approval of and encouragement in the
club's objectives which should aid greatly in
the advancement of our social and business
life.
Within the club will be built firm friend-
ships and understanding between men of all
the businesses and professions in Port St.
Joe and neighboring cities. The club and its
members will perform work which will make
the community a better place in which to live
through the formation of a worldly rather
than a provincial viewpoint.
Again, we wish the new Kiwanis club the
best of everything and a long and productive
existence.

OIL AND THE FARMER
The oil industry, strange -as it may seem,
is one of the farmer's best and most reliable
customers.
We in Port St. Joe, with our pipeline which
handles petroleum products only and with
which we are well acquainted, probably don't
know it, but much of the grease that lubri-
cates our cars and other machines contains
tallow oil which, in turn, comes from sheep.
About 107,000,000 pounds of tallow oil in one
form or another are consumed annually by
the petroleum industry. That requires 35,-
000,000 sheep.
This is just one item in the long list ot
supplies the oil industry buys each year di-
rectly from agriculture. To it must be added
lard oil from pigs, stearine from cattle and
horses, castor oi" from the castor plant,
neat's-foot oil made from horns and hooves,
milk, fiberboard, hair felt, leather, cotton fab-
-i .. YVVji V -l - 7 1 wre of nthprz
The petroleum industry's consumption of
farm products grows steadily, as production
of oil and lubricants increases, and as new
techniques and processes are developed. And
millions of dollars thus find their way into
the farmers' pockets.
So, in a very real sense, the corner seiv-
ice station is a distributor of farm crops! And
the oil industry is one of agriculture's big-
gest cash customers. This is an example of
how American industry spreads its economic
benefits throughout the whole country.

The Low Down
from
Willis Swamp

Editor The Star:
Been some little time since I've
writ you, but I been study.in'
mighty hard over things in general
and my subject this time is "Ex-
perts."
Brethren and Sistern. I'm aller-
t;ic to experts. Early each fall
they tell us which football team
ain't got a chance, and then on
New Year's Day. in the Rose
Bowl, is the outfit they said was
a weak sister. Last spring they
said the Yankees were too strong
and oughta be busted up to give
the others a chance. And in Cin-
cinnati, in the fall, you see De-
troit-not the Yankees.
And up there in them big bulgin'
building's in Washington, our ex-
perts expound and tell us they got
it fixed so that by. next year we'll
be in clover. But next year keeps
on bein' next year.
And Gallahadion in the Derby a
year ago, had no chance, but if
you had two smackers on him you


took down 60. The experts sanuk'"
home in a barrel. This year they
improved some-but not much.
What this country needs most is
not fewer gradmas in seersucker
pants and lavender toenails, like
most people think, it is fewer ex-


perts.
Yours with the low down,
JO SERRA.

Hurlbuts Have Guests,
Mrs. Roy Edmunds and Mrs.San-
ford Barber of Bainbridge,, Ga.
