St. Joe-Panama


City Highway Is

Not to Be Closed


Word from Washington Allays
Fears That Gunnery Base
Might Close Road

There has been considerable lo-
cal talk lately that the highway
between Port St. Joe and, Panama
'ity would be closed to traffic
.-hortly due to the huge gunnery
-i'ool under construction on the
highway between Beacon Hill and
Panama City.
In order to find, out definitely
whether. or not Highway 98 would
be closed, Secretary Thos. R. L.
Carter of the local Kiwanis club
contacted Senator Claude Pepper
in Washington and Senator Pepper
immediately got in touch with the
war department, which issued the
followingg information:
"Dear Senator Pepper-Further
reference is made to your com-
munication of July 31st and the
letter from Mr. Thos. R. L. Car-
ter, secretary the Kiwanis club
of Port St. Joe, Fla., concerning
the closing of U. S. Highway 98
between Port St. Joe an( Pan-
ama City.
"It is not contemplated that U.
S. Highway No. 98 between Pan-
ama City and Port St. Joe will
be closed to the public, provided!
traffic on the highway can be
controlled to the extent that it
will not interfere with the train-
ing operations- at _the -guaenry
base.
"Sincerely yours,
"Robert P. Patterson,
"Acting Secretary of War."
Credence was lent to the fact
that the highway might be closed
as such action was taken hy the
government on the Tallahassee-
Blountstown highway due to the
huge air base being built near the
capital city, although in that case

DRIVE CAREFULLY
The Port Sc. Joe schools will open Monday
and motorists of the city are urged to drive
carefully on the streets during the hours the
children are going to and from school. And
they are urged to be particularly careful at
all times in driving down Long avenue, on
which our school plants are located. We havu
had no accidents to school children during
the past four years. Let's keep the record
clean.

LEE SERVES NOTICE
If there has been any doubt in the official
or public mind that a determined effort will
not be made to make the new tax assessment
work, that doubt was removed the other day
by Comptroller J. M. Lee. The comptroller
rejected the Gilchrist county tax roll and
village levy on the ground that the tax rate
was not reduced in proportion to the increase
in assessed valuations.
Taxpayers have been assured that their
taxes will not be higher because of the 100
per cent assessment. They have been told, in
fact, that taxes should come down rather
than go up, by virtue of the more equitable
assessment and the return to the rolls of con-
siderable property which has been enjoying
tax exemption.
There has been a doubt in the mind of the
taxpayer, however, that county commission-
ers would make a comparable reduction in
the millage when the assessments were
raised to full value. Mr. Lee's action in the
case of Gilchrist county should go far to dis-
pel that doubt.
After making an examination of the Gil-
christ county roll, the comptroller sent it
back to the commissioners with the sugges-
tion that the proposed 21 mill levy be cut to
18 mills, as compared to 37 mills last year.
He pointed out that a sampling of the tax
roll indicated that 21 .mills, under the new
assessment, would incerase the tax load on
properties from $1 to $3 on each $1000 as-
sessment. He said that there should be no
increase on those who had been paying their
taxes.
What Mr. Lee has done in Gilchrist county
can, and no doubt will, be done in other
counties, if the millage levies are not held in
line with the assessment increases. As the
state goes through an evolution in its tax
system, some mistakes probably will be made
but the comptroller has shown that no injus-
tices that he can detect will get past.-Ocala

INSTALLMENT BUYING CURBED
Starting last Monday the days when "a
dollar down and a dollar a week" would buy
practically anything in Port St. Joe and else-
where bowed themselves into the limbo of
forgotten things. It took a war and the threat
of inflation to do it, but the government has
finally stepped in and limited installment
buying. Henceforth installment buyers must
make a substantial down payment, and in-
stallments cannot be distributed over more.
than an 18-month period.
Heaviest hit are the articles that American
buyers can conceivably do without. Buyers of
both new and used automobiles must pay a


third of the price in cash. Less restricted art
household articles like mechanical refrigera-
tors, washing machines, vacuum cleaners,
stoves and radios, which require a down pay-
ment of 20 per cent. Oil burners, water heat-
ers, pumps, plumbing and sanitary fixtures
are in the 15 per cent down category. Lowest
possible first payment is 10 per cent, and can
be used only to purchase new household fur-
niture, including ice refrigerators, mattresses,
and bed springs.
Immediately effective is the ruling that
credit extended for less than $1000 on home
repairs or alterations must not extend over
a longer period than 18 months. Effective on
October 1 is a new 18-month ruling for all
installment loans of $1000 or less. Regula-
tions will tighten after January 1, 1942, when
no payments of less than $5 per month will
be allowed.
In the past, installment buying has been
an incentive to salaried workers to buy more
than they could afford. I'he tragedy of in-
stallment buyers losing their equity through
inability to keep up the payments has been
a common occurrence.

TRAGIC SYMBOLISM
Recently, in the historic French town of
Fountainbleau, squads of workmen went to
work on a wrecking job. That job involved
the tearing down of two huge statues. One
was of a great Frenchman who had fought
for democracy-Marshal Lafayette. The other
statue was of a great American who led a
victorious democratic army-General John J.
Pershing.
There is a tragic symbolism in this. For It
indicates how completely France has deserted
the democratic way of life, and embraced
the doctrines of the total state as laid down
and enforced by Hitler.
It is generally felt that the great bulk of
the French people hate Hitler and pray for
an allied victory. But, so long as the present
Vichv government exists there seems no
other course than to regard modern France
as an alvl of German\y.
The hope that General Weygand would
eventually refuse to use his great African
army to help the Germans is, in the view of
most experts, futile. The recent appointment
of Admiral Darlan as head of French defense
shows the way the wind blows. Darlan is
anti-democratic and pro-Nazi. It will not
come as any great surprise if the French fleet
is in time placed at Hitler's disposal.

THE RIGHT TO SPEAK
The recent report from Washington that
censorship legislation for newspapers, radio,
motion pictures and all other forms of com-
munications in and out of the United States
was about to be introduced in congress
brought a prompt denial of any such plans
from President Roosevelt. In spite of that,
however, the news association that circulated
the original story insists that it is true. Amer
icans who value their liberty can only hopu
that it is not.
Freedom of the press has always been one
of the fundamental freedoms in our democ-
racy. Today we are arming to defend those
freedoms--all of them. In the dictator coun-
tries, freedom of the press was one of the
first freedoms to fall under the axe of gov-
ernment decree. Take away a man's right to
say what he honestly thinks, and you set the
stage for a nation of puppets, all dancing to
the vicious music" of subtle propaganda.
It has happened in other nations. We dare
not let it happen here.

With the "nothing down" plan of buying
eliminated, a lot of people are going to do
without a lot of things they don't need.

All the talk for a couple of days last week
was the "tech" of fall weather we had. It
was a grand and glorious feeling' while it
lasted.

-'< Wouldn't you like to take this hot weather
up in the polar regions and swap it off?


KEEP HIM THAT WAYI


There were loud voices in the "That store down at the corner
house next door. The argument that I've told you about. Remem-

remarked. "But then, Jones always
gets excited when he talks about
taxes." "Yes," said I, "andi Mr.
Brown has very different ideas
about defense."
With these few harmless obser-
vations we dismissed this vivid
example of one of America's
traditional freedioms-freedom of
speech. Of course, people nave the
right to say what they want to,
whether others believe it or not!

The evening paper, tightly fold-
ed, was on the porch when we got
home John opened it up as we
went in and turned on the light.
There on the front page was an
editorial criticizing certain state-
ments made recently by our chief
executive.
"Well," said he, "'J. B.' doeTsn't
seem to agree with the president."
We laughed, for that was putting
it mildly. for "J. B.", the editor,
was rabidi on the subject without
the least fear concerning his paper
or his person. And so we calmly
took for granted another of our
national freedoms-freedom of the
press.

A few minutes later Mary came
rushing in the front door, cheeks
flaming. "Mother!" she exclaimed.
''"ve just. had the awfulest argu
ment with Bill Sullivan about re-

"There, there, Mary .. calm
yourself. People can be good
firends and still have very differ-
ent ideas about religion." I said.
"and the thing that really matters
is sincerity."

mentals of our precious Bill of

We could see he had something or

"Good for you, Bill," we said,

this type of individual initiative
possible.

cidents is -the story of our Ameri-
can way of life. A way unknown in
much of the rest of the world to-
day where men dare not speak

HITLER "WANTED FOR
MURDER" IN POSTERS
THROUGHOUT NATION

The Star this week received a
"police flier" from the Fight for
Freedom Committee, bearing two
likenesses of Adolf Hitler, with
fingerprints of right and left
:ia:ids, and with the heading:
"WANTED FOR MURDER."
Tens of thousands of these
"fliers' have been distributed over
the nation and describe Hitler.
,il'is Schickelgruber, as "wanted
far nturder, arson, grand larceny,
possession of firearms, treachery.
pirircy and religious prosecution."
Under the heading "Particulars,"
the Nazi chief is reported to have
a "tendency to become hysterical
on slight provocation, has been
known tu throw himself on floor
and gnaw rugs; has guttral voice
ipt to rise to shrill tones when
excited or thwarted. Has delusions
particularly about his powers over
vast numbers of people. He is sadi
istic, malicious, bombastic, veng e5
ful, mystical, maniacal, addicted to
public hysteria on 'race purity;
suffers from dreams of persecution.
He is a congenital liar. He has
worked at only one known trade-
house-painting."
The "flier" adds that "if cap.
tured. dead or alive, the reward C
will be freedom for the entire
world, andi peace for all nations."

Last week, in "The Annals of pi

if pectin found in grapefruit, which ti
serves effectively for blood trans- tu
usions and helps to combat infec- $1

ulcers. L
These pectin transfusions al-

n seven patients, including a 56-
ear-old woman who, suffering
