FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT
1937
Who is it that we love so we'll?
Who is called "The Poor Man's
FriendP?"
Who saw that we had work to do ?
Brought the depression to an end
He is the man we bless today,
For the love and sympathy he
felt.
May God send showers of bless
ings down
On Franklin Roosevelt!
We are so glad he longs for peace
And yet is brave and strong and
true;
And if war clouds should gather
here
He will do what's best to do.
At the sound of another's cry of
woe
His greab heart does in pity melt.
We are so glad we're countrymen
Of Franklin Roosevelt!
May victory crown his effort still,
As he grandly marches on his way
With smiling face and outstretched
hand
And an humble loving heart today.
He has our love, our hopes, our
fears,
Our gratitude-sincere, heartfelt.
In our hearts none can take the
place
Of Franklin Roosevelt!

War clouds have gathered thick
and fast,
Till a storm is tnreatenlng over-

But our leader plans for our de-

And prays our boys' blood won't
be shed.
May he safely guide our Ship of
State
Through the perils now so widely
felt.
We place our hope and deepest
faith
In Franklin Roosevelt!
C(Tod help him choose the wisest
course
in defense of all we hold so dear.

NO FOOD TO EUROPE UNTIL NAZIS GO
Our government has again rejected the
Hoover plan for feeding the small nations of
Europe under Hitler's domination. The plan
has its humanitarian points, but the Allies
-have decided, and rightfully, that any plan
to help the starving French, Greeks, Poles,
and Belgians must be subordinated to the
main war objective-to wipe out the Nazis.
Without examining the problem closely, to
help those suffering people would seem a step
in that direction. Proponents of the Hoover
plan argue that a well-fed enemy of the Nazis
on the continent will be more tempted to re-
volt. Such is not the case. The French and
Russian revolutions serve as points of argu-
ment. A cruel government's greatest time of
danger is at hand when the people under its
yoke are starving.
Sympathy is a fine thing, but sympathy and
the feeding of Hitler's charges are not going
to beat Hitler. The German government as-
sumed the duty of feeding Europe when it
conquered most of the continent, and any plan
to relieve Hitler of his burden will only pro-
long the war. Should we ship food into these
countries, Germany would appropriate all ot
their crops to feed her soldiers, instead of
leaving enough for a bare subsistence, as Is
the case at present, and would let us feed the
people of the conquered countries, meantime
going on counquer other nations for us to
feed.
The only plan of the Allies to feed the hun-
gry is now in the form of a vast reservoir ot
food and other supplies to feed the people on
the continent-after Hitler is beaten. The
prospective fulfillment of this plan should
offer enough incentive for timely revolt
among The hungry of Europe. And they are
engaged in that now.

THE SWISS METHOD
The following letter was written by a wo-
man born in Switzerland and was published
in a large daily newspaper:
"So much has been said about this wonder-
ful, free country of ours, that sometimes 1
wonder if people do not misunderstand the
meaning of 'free.' I have been told time and
time again what mustn't and what shouldn't
be done, because the United States is a 'free*
country.
"Mothers feel terrible because their babies
are in the army-yet this is the only place
where they learn how to behave. I come
from the only 'free' country in the world-
Switzerland-yet everything is compulsory.
Children must go to school. They must learn
a trade. They must be soldiers. And how
proud their mothers are when they see their
sons big and strong and clean. They do not
yet need dances and entertainment to induce
them to fight for their country. They love
their 'free country' and are proud to die for
it, should it come to that.
"Unless we teach the children, in school
and at home, the real meaning of a 'free coun-
try,' I am afraid we shall lose that freedom."

The first thing a girl looks for after she
crawls out of an auto wreck is her powder
puff.


ERASE THE DELINQUENT BLOT
Much more important than the average
citizen and taxpayer will realize at first is
the new plan for collecting delinquent taxes
which has been approved by the county com-
mission and budget board.
Under this plan, which will be tried as an
experiment during the next three months,
Circuit Court Clerk Pent will employ a sal-
ried collector to send out notices and make
personal calls on those property owners who
are delinquent. Any persons who still refuse
to pay will find their accounts turned over
to county attorneys for colelctioin.
We view the system as businesslike, ef-
ficient and capable of successful operation. Its
advantages are that few if any delinquent
property owners will fail to be notified; it is
less expensive than the fee system heretofore
in effect under the special delinquent tax at-
torny, and should result in higher net returns.
For a long time we have contended that
delinquent taxes should and could be col-
lected. We have always maintained that a vig-
orous and yet a fair campaign was all that
was needed. It is our opinion that county of-
ficials have "babied" delinquent property
owners too long, and that is why we coin-
mend commissioners and budget board mem-
bers for deciding to fake a firm hand in or-
der to meet this most important of county
problems.
Hillsborough county, with a disgraceful
record of more than $1,400,000 in back taxes
outstanding, has an opportunity to redeem it-
self in the eyes of the state as well as those
who have paid their taxes faithfully in the
past. Now we have a good plan. It will work
if it is administered fairly, firmly and fear,
lessly.-Tampa Morning Tribune.

FUTURE WONDER WORLD
We Americans may not be riding, in rocket
cars or making regular trips to the moon
within the next ten years or so, but other
wonders are in store for us. There's a chance
that some of these wonders may change our
lives as completely as the automobile did, or
the radio, or any one of the many inventions
that have appeared within the past generation
or two.
That, at least, is the prediction of Dr. Rob-
ert A. Millikan, eminent physicist and Nobel
prize winner. He says that the life of many
during the next few decades will be "power-
fully" influenced by industrial and other
scientific developments that are under way at
the present time.
For several of these inventions we may
not have to wait long, either. In the not too
distant future we may be riding in cars built
partly of milk, using fuel distilled partly from
sweet potatoes, over roads made partly of
cotton.
According to Dr. Millikan, the post-emer-
gency period probably will bring new de-
velopments in transportation and international
communications as a result of the "enormous"
progress in military aviation. Among the
other advances he lists new plastics, improve-
ments in short wave radio, better sterilization
of drinking water, new knowledge of vita-
mins to change our eating habits, and further
developments in medicine and public health.
Such advances by no means exhaust the
list of improvements in store for us, however.
To our children, our present-day lives will
probably seem as uncomfortable and old-
fashioned as the lives of our grandparents
seem to us today. If the scientists continue
to make life more and more attractive for us
here in America, we may not want to take
that trip to the moon when the time for It
.does arrive.

There are plenty of "Stop" signs on the
road to hell, but few going that way pay any
attention to them.-Titusville Star-Advocate.

Maybe some day the meek will inherit the
earth, as predicted, but there will not be much
left after the inheritance tax is paid.-Wash-
ington Star.

Federal Request to

Save Waste Paper

Riles Estero Editor


Urges Campaign Start In Washing-
ton From Whence Comes Reams
Of So-Called News Releases

By RUSSELL KAY
Editor Allen Andrews, publisher
of the American Eagle at Estero,
is a friendly, kindly soul and can
usually be counted upon to co-
operate fully in any constructive
effort. Ordinarily he leads a calm
and peaceful existence, and it
takes a lot to get him worked up
to. the point of flinging an ed-
itorial harpoon at anyone.
But even the worm will turn,
we are told, and IlRewlse the
meekest and mildest of men can
"stand just so much."
Last week, opening his mail, Al-
len found himself wading through
a mess of press releases. Reach-
ing over to pull the waste basket
a bit closer so that he could handle
them In the routine manner, his
eye chanced to catch the word
"waste paper." Staying the hand
that was automatically edging the
mimeographed sheet to the yawn-
ing receptacle, he took. time. to
read and ponder over the follow-
ing appeal from his government:
"Washington, D. C.-Waste pa.
per now joins the nation's parade
of defense needs, it was announced
Saturday night by officials of the
Office of Production Management.
"A national collection campaign
conducted by the waste paper con-
suming industries and supported
by the OPM, will begin this week
in New York City, Chicago and
Milwaukee. Thereafter the pro-
gram will spread to other cities
. housewives, small business
houses and industries will be
aksed to save watse paper."
Allen looked at his desk all
cluttered up with official looking
envelopes all stuffed with gobs of
carefully folded sheets of "waste
paper," then he gazed' upon his
trusty waste basket, filled to
overflowing with similar material.
It was too much. Snorting like a
caribou, he yanked the offending
message back from oblivion, spread
It out before him, and reached for
his battered typewriter.
Allen, along with other patriotic
fellow citizens, had voluntarily
contributed his share to the na-
tional aluminum pile; to the ex-
tent of his ability he was buying
defense bonds and savings stamps

The Low Down
from
Willis Swamp

Editor The Star:
My blood pressure most of the
time hangs around normal. But
soon as I get out on the highway
and the "E" cars commence passing'
me, pardner, I begin to take ,on a
purple and blue tinge. And it ain't
just in the day time you see the
"E" cars. They seem to be even
more plentiful in the cool of the
evening .
Out in Washington state they
got a new governor, and I guess
he's allergic to "E" cars, too. He's
starting' a state garage where all
cars are pooled-and parked over-
night. To get a car you gotta
show where you're goin'. If it's
just to a movie or down to the
beach, you get no state car.
There's one more thing for the
governor to do. He should ask his
citizens to help him check up. If
a taxpayer sees, a state car he
could stroll over and say, "Buddy,
what you doin' here this time of
night, and who's the party with
you, and is she working' for the
state, also?"
That boy Langlie is gonna be
some governor.
Yours. with the low down, "
JO SERRA.


Harold Ickes and, his gas-saving
program. But when his govern-
ment deliberately bombarded him
with gobs and gobs of waste, pa-
per and then admonished nim to
please save it for 'em, that was
the straw that broke the camel's
vertebrae
Choosing language "fit to print"
with difficulty, that humble editor
pointed out that from countless
governmental departments, boards,
bureaus, committees and commis-
sions, he received a never-ending
flow of so-called "news" releases.
So much, in fact, that if some en-
terprising statistician were to
gather it all up and lay) it end to
end it would probably reaoh from
hell to breakfast.
Practically every governmental
bureau today has its own publicity
man or men whose job it is to sing
the praises of the particular ac-
tivity with whom he or they may
be employed. Their job is to dis-
seminate propaganda and publicity
material that the experienced
"news hawk" and news gathering
agencies won't handle. To justify
their existence they must keep
typewriters clicking and multi-

Why not choose the NAVAL RESERVE I





AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

by the Secretary of the Navy


"All men now enlisting in the Naval Reserve will be retained on

active Navy duty throughout the period of the national emergency,

but they will be released to inactive duty as soon after the emer-

gency as their services can be spared, regardless of the length of

time remaining in their enlistment."




SECRETARY OF THE NAVY ,, //


HERE IS THE OPPORTUNITY
THAT THOUSANDS OF MEN
HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR

Here is your opportunity to have all the ad-
vantages and privileges of Navy life but with
a shorter enlistment.
Many men do not realize-but it is a fact-
that your pay, your training, and your chances
for advancement in the Naval Reserve are
exactly the same as in the Navy itself.

FREE TRAINING WORTH $1500
Take your own case. Let's assume that you
have had no special training. In that case here
is your opportunity to learn one of the Navy's
45 big-pay trades, from aviation engineering
to radio. You may receive training worth
$1500 the first year alone. In addition you get
all the advantages listed in the second column
of this announcement.

HIGHER PAY OPPORTUNITIES
But perhaps you have had special training or
know'a trade. In that case the Naval Reserve
offers you the opportunity to use your knowl-
edge. If you qualify (high school or college


not necessary), you can join as a petty officer
right away-with higher pay and allowances.
Also, if you have two or more years of college
credits, there are special opportunities to be-
come a Naval aviator or a commissioned officer.

LOOK WHAT THE U. S.
NAVAL RESERVE OFFERS YOU
FREE TRAINING worth $1500. Nearly 50 trades
and vocations to choose from.
GOOD PAY with regular increases. You may
earn up to $126 a month.
EACH YEAR you are entitled to a generous
vacation period, with full pay.
GOOD FOOD and plenty of it.
FREE CLOTHING. A complete outfit of cloth-
ing when you first enlist. (Over $100 worth.)
FREE MEDICAL CARE, including regular den-
tal attention.
FINEST SPORTS and entertainment any man
could ask for.
TRAVEL, ADVENTURE, THRILLS-You can't
beat the Navy for them!
BECOME AN OFFICER. Many can work for
an appointment to the Naval Academy or
the Annapolis of the Air at Pensacola.
FUTURE SUCCESS. It's easy for Navy trained
men to get good-paying jobs in civil life.


In any case, it is your chance of a lifetime
to lead a healthy, exciting life... your chance
to travel... and at the same time build a solid
foundation for your future. There is nothing
better than modern Navy Training for a suc-
cessful career in civil life.
