SD.. -Le:tive Editorializing
Under the heading WAfRNING," the Port St. Joe Sentinel
yesterday carried an editorial which, if taken literally by resi-
dents of this city, would cause them to dispose of their holdings
and move elsewhere for fuar of being drowned.
The editorial states that "du ing the last 100 years Port St.
Joe has been destroyed by h gh water, and several other times
high water has been high enough to do considerable damage
and cause evacuation of the inhabitants. In case of high water
now there would be little opportunity of evacuation because the
tide might be a sudden thing (as of old)." The editorial
then goes on to point out the necessity for a modern bridge to
replace the floating bridge over the canal at White City in or-
der that the people of this city might escape drowning should
this theoretical high water come.
We do not believe the editor of The Sentinel delved very
deeply into the past history of this section, for if he had, he
would have discoveerd that old St. Joseph was not destroyed by
a tidal wave and that during the past 1'00 years there nas never
been need for evacuation of the inhabitants due to high water.
One of our oldest inhabitants, whose father lived here at the
time old St. Joseph was at the height of her glory, states that
his father told him there was nothing to the story of the sup-
posed tidal wave that was alleged to have rushed far inland-
that it was pure fiction concocted by interests which did not
want St. Joseph to be rebuilt on one of the finest natural har-
bors on the Gulf coast. And during the lifetime of this old-time
resident, who is'nearing the 80-year mark, there has never been
a time when evacuation of the citizens was necessary. It Is
true that several times there have been exceptionally high tides,
due to storms out on the Gulf, but never high enough to cause
any great deal of worry.
Such stories, entirely fictitious, are detrimental to our town
and while the editor of The Star carried in an early issue the
account of the yellow fever epidemic in old St. Joseph and the
supposed tidal wave, it was with the notation that it was merely
an interesting story without basis of fact in regard to the high
Editorials of the type carried by The Sentinel this week
while ostensibly written in a constructive vein, tend to tear down
and destroy that which has been laboriously built up by the
people and the newspapers, and anyone reading such an editorial
would be fearful of coming to Port St. Joe to take up residence
or establish a place of business.
The prime purpose of any newpsaper, anywhere, is to build
up the community in which it is published; to boost without re-
serve or thought of personal gain any enterprise that will be
of benefit to the community as a whole, and above all. to con-
tinually extol the virtues of the community in which it has its
being-in other words, to work for the common good of all.

No More White Sidewall
Tires, Says Government
Following rumors which have
been afloat for several weeks, the
Office of Production Management
in Washington h'as ordered manu-
facturers to cease the production
of white sidewall automobile tires.
This latest move to conserve
rubber for national defense work
becomes effective tomorrow, and
officials estimate it will save more
than 6000 tons annually.
A white sidewall tire requires
approximately two pounds more
rubber than an ordinary black tire.
This new restriction will also save
some zinc, which, in its oxide
form, is used in the two-tone tires.

HOW ABOUT THAT OLD ALUMINUM?
The pile of scrap aluminum in the bin in
front of the Port theater is not piling up as
fast as it should. There is no way to know-
just how much scrap aluminum there is kick-
ing around in Port St. Joe, but the pile in
the bin looks pitiably small to us for a city
of our size,
There are undoubtedly a lot of people who
have set aside some old pots and pans with
the intention of bringing them down town,
but have not yet got around to it. Let's quit
talking about bringing in this scrap aluminum
and bring it in! Throw it into your car right
now and toss it into the bin when you come
up town. This is your duty, not the duty of
some committee or some public spirited citi-
zen. Let's boost the pile of aluminum in that
bin until it overflows the top-and let's do
it right now.
BEGINNING TO- PAY
We are just beginning to get a taste of the
higher taxation that has finally become in-
evitable. Some time back congress raised in-
c.ome tax rates in all brackets, and lowered
exemptions, in order to bring into the fold
thousands of low-bracket citizens who had
never paid direct federal taxes before, and
now they are talking of still another cut.
Our taxes are now the highest in our his-
tory. Even so, the revenue resulting will be
far from adequate to pay for what we are
spending. The answer to that is more deficit-
financing-which simply amounts to charging
today's bills against tomorrow's income. The
tax boosts so far approved by congress are
but a modest beginning. In coming sessions
further increases, more severe than anything
we have ever known, will in all probability
be passed. Only a miracle, which would raise
the national income far beyond any reason-
able expectation, could change the outlook.
Higher taxes mean sacrifices for all the
people. We will be able to afford fewer lux-
uries-and we shall have to make the most
out of the necessities. And if the people must
sacrifice, the government should also by pat-
ing down on all governmental departments
and eliminating the dead wood. It is the duty
of our government to see that our sacrifice
will not be in vain-that, in short, we get 100
per cent value in return for our tax dollars.
At the end of the last war, a leading Brit-
ish statesman made this significant observa-
tion: "The Allies sailed to victory on a sea
of oil." In World War II, thinks many an ex-
pert, the decision will again be largely deter-
mined by the petroleum assets of the antago-
nists. And that is where Germany is weak--
and Britain and the United States are strong.

A GREAT GIFT
Life is a great gift. We cherish it, cling
to it desperately, long after its joys seem to
have been exhausted.
Yet it is cheap, so cheap that men pour it
out lavishly when they turn to war.
How many men have died since the storm
broke in September of 1939? How many per-
ished in the snows of Finland, in Norway,
Holland, Belgium, France, Greece, Crete,
northern Africa and Syria? How many are
dying today on the far-flung battle line in
Russia ? Iuthl Germans and Russians are say-
ing "millions." Will we ever know how
many are yielding up life on these battle-
fields which literally run rivers of blood ?
Throughout all Europe are countless fam-
ilies whose sons never return. The hosts of
men who yielded up their lives when their
country called, for causes just or unjust, lie
for the most part in unmarked graves on vast
battlefields. Sorrow lives in every home In
Europe today. And still the fever spreads.
When will it all end. ?-St. Augustine RecorcL
LONG SHOT UPSETS THE DOPE
In wars, as in horse races, the long shot
occasionally upsets the dope and comes thru
for a win. Some of the experts are now can-
tiously hazarding the guess that this may
porve true of the Russians.
When the German-Russian war began, the
bulk of the military authorities reluctantly
agreed that -litler was probably right when
he said that it would be over in six weeks.
Those six weeks and more have now passed
and the Russians, instead of retreating in con-
fusion, are apparently counter-attacking to
great advantage. The Germans have not
taken any areas of major importance.
The Red air force, which, according to Ger-
man claims was almost totally destroyed in
the early days of the fighting, is still very
much in evidence and is giving excellent sup-
port to the Soviet land forces. The Red mech-
anized equipment, which was supposed to be
second-rate, has, according to some reporters,
who have seen it in action, actually proven
equal and even superior to the German. Most
important of all, the morale of the Russian
people-military and civilian alike-seems to
have proven far more staunch than anyone
With this hot weather on us, the danger
of fire in our timber lands is again with us.
Fire in the forest is worse than almost any
other kind of fire. A house can be rebuilt. A
tree cannot. In a few years, roaring flames
can destroy timber that nature must spend
fifty .or more years replacing. One of our
greatest resources is. our timber. It is the
basis of two great employing industries right
here in Port St. Joe. Help to preserve it.
Tentative figures reveal that Dade county
will have a half-billion dollar real estate tax
roll this year, compared to $110,000,000 a year
ago, and personal property is expected to go
over the $70,000,000 mark, as against $55,-
000,000 last year. This is more assessed value
on the tax rolls than the entire state had a
year ago. Looks like the new tax setup will
divide the tax burden far more evenly than
has been the case heretofore.

day that she would leave him and go home

Looks like the strategy of the Russians is
beginning to have results. They let the Ger-
mans chase them until they are all wAorn out
and then turn and clean up on the Nazis.

The Low Down
I like old stories. Pretty often
the oldest one is the best. Some of
the old ones on the radio ain't so
good because they're not really
old enough. They're sorta half-way
-somethin' like half-aged cabbage
which ain't yet sauerkraut.
And while we're still on sauer-
kraut versus old stories, you're in
tor an awakenin' if you still think
sauerkraut is common. Sauerkraut
is now steppin' out-it's served in
High places. And when more peo-
Sple eat more sauerkraut the doc-
tors are gonna have tough sleddin'.
But to git back to old stories.
The old timer I had. in mind was
the one about the souse who was
braggin' he'could lick anybody in
the house. Nobody took him seri-
ous, so he kept broadenin' his
scope until he finally reckoned he
could pulverize anybody-no limit.
Whereupon a quiet kinda person
popped the gent on the chin. And
when the gent woke up and was
able to talk, he kinda allowed he
had mebbe taken in too much ter-
ritory in his last remark.
This Mr. Hitler, there in Russia,
he savvies what I'm talking' about.

Cisco Kid Picture

ing Saturday Only At
Palpitating hearts and pounding
lioirs mean one thing-the Cisco
Kid, gun in hand and a senoriia
in his arms, is back again in "Ride
On Vaquero." playing tomorrow at
tlh Port theatre.
The handsome Cesar Romero
once more is seen in the role of
thla romantic richer of the sage.
the carefree caballero who rights
wrong with the business end of a
.45 and who wins the ladies by
just being the Cisco Kid." The
genial rolyr-poly Chris-Pin Martin
again portrays the part of the Kid's
bloodthirsty but faithful partner.
For all his accomplishments, the
Kid would still be in jail or hang-
ing from a tree if it were not for
tle conniving of beautiful Mary
Beth Hughes, who portrays a
dancer in the bullet-scarred Crys-
tal Palace cafe.
The Kid and Gordito, jailed by
the U. S. cavalry, are released to
track down a gang of kidnappers
who have been terrorizing the Ari-
zona territory. One of their vic
tims is the Kid's personal friend
For a while things looked bad for
the Kid. He has been arrested by
the sheriff, who is working with
the kidnapers, the town's banker.
and the saloon keeper.
Mary Beth helps Cisco escape.
He then tracks down the kid-
napers, rescues his friend, re-
covers the ransom money and
rides away before the cavalry can
catch up with him again.
Lynne Roberts lends her beauty
and talent to this roistering Cisco

MAYO ASKS FARMERS
TO CONSERVE ON GAS
Calling on all farmers to co-
operate in the conservation of gas-
oline and oil and get more mileage
jut of these products, Commis-
sioner of Agriculture Nathan Mayo
issued the following announce-
"You can get more mileage per
gallon traveling at speeds of 30 to
10 miles than at greaser speeds.
Also, you lose a lot of gas on
quick pick-ups and quick starts.
"Going up hills you do not have
to choke and give your vehicle a
lot of gas. Shove it in second if
too steep, save gas and get over
"At 55 miles an hour you use
about six times the oil that 30
miles an hour requires.
"Don't make hasty, stops. This
wears out the brake linings and
brakes refuse to work when an
"Going at 30 to 40 miles an hour
also saves wear and tear on tires.'
Incidentally, Mr. Mayo's advice
should be followed by all motor-
ists, not just the farmers.
Mr. and Mrs. M. B. Larkin were
week-endl visitors in Bristol.

Low-Cost Home Answers Private Or Defense Need
RECOMMENDED by the U. S. De-
partment of Agriculture for
either city or country residence,
this "House of the Month" is
planned to appeal not only to the
prospective owner of a low-cost pri-
vate home but also to the devel-
oper planning to build in quantity
to fill defense housing needs.
It was designed by Ernest Lang-
ford, architect and head of the
Texas State School of Architecture,
and was one of the plans selected
at President Roosevelt's Confer-
ence on Home Ownership.
Both for beauty and to insure
long life, the use of pure white lead
paint is recommended, not only for
the original coats but also for re-
painting in future years. This old
reliable paint, approved by Govern-
ment experts, is outstanding in its
durability, and kee an en oer-
