Red Cross Roll Call

Quota For County

Is 2100 Members

Committee Reports That First
Three Days of Drive Are
Very Encouraging

With the first three days of
their campaign behind them, volun-
teer workers in Gulf county's an-
nual Red Cross Roll Call have re-
ported that memberships are be-
ing received at a very satisfactory
rate.
Shooting again at the nation-
wide record for per capital contri-
butions established by Gulf county
in the past two years, the can-
vassers for the local chapter are
calling on all business houses,
homes and individuals throughout
the county in their effort to raise
funds for the maintenance of the
local relief work, national defense
activities andi war sufferers' aid
on which the Red Cross must
spend millions of dollars during
the coming year.
Already the response locally is
very) gratifying, according to B. B.
Conklin, Roll Call chairman, and
he expects Gulf county to attain
its goal of 2100 memberships dur-
ing the drive. -P
Ministers of local churches are
being asked to remind their con-
gregations of the need for support-
ing the organization's activities,
The Star has contributed gener-
ously of its space in promoting the
drive, and the Port ti.a atr is giv- -
ing a place on its program during
the week to a short film depicting
the work of the Red. Cross among
the men in the country's armed
forces.
Workers in the campaign are
again pointing out that contribu-
tions to the Red Cross enable the
local chapter to take care of many
families and individuals in Gulf
county who, through Illness and
unemployment, are in desperate
circumstances and cannot obtain
aid from other sources. They are
also emphasizing that none of the
fund's raised in the Roll Call is
spent on salaries, all of such funds
going for war relief, aid to army
and navy personnel and local
needs.
Heading the campaign in Port
St. Joe are: Mrs. Basil E.. Kenney,
vice-chairman; Mrs. A. M. Jones,
women's division, in charge of the
house-to-house canvassing; J. E.

FLORIDA PRESS DECIDEDLY FREE
SAST WEEK we penned an editorial on the
freedom of the press, and this week, as
we inspected some forty-odd Florida weekly
newspapers that come to our desk, with
especial interest in the editorial pages, we
stand convinced that few, if any, other states
in the Union can show a higher class of edi-
torial writing in its weekly press than that
exhibited month after month in the weekly
press of Florida.
We could compare one paper with another,
but that would be useless where nearly all ot
the publications are excellent, the editors giv-
ing free, independent utterances to their
opinions.
And these opinions are not confined to lo-
cal affairs. They discuss Florida and national
politics, business and financial conditions,
sports, religion, the war, the world series,
Lindbergh and Hitler, and hundreds of other
things worthwhile-and they do it in a human
and intelligent manner.
The weekly press of Florida is the greatest
power in the state to disseminate truths and
to create public opinion, therefore the editors
of Florida weekly newspapers should be, aa
most of them are, absolutely free to give
voice to their honest thoughts and beliefs on
all matters. It is probable that the weekly
press of Florida comes nearer saying what it
thinks than any other element in the state.
And it is also probable that the editors of the
weekly papers of the state come as near siz-
ing up a situation as any other element.
It is known that the forces that are seek-
ing discriminatory favors fear the weekly
press more than any other element. The av-
erage editor of a weekly paper takes pride
in his independence. He bows to no man. He
would rather go down fighting for a prin-
ciple than ride on the crest at the orders ot
another man.
The integrity of a newspaper is something
like a woman's virtue-once tarnished, it Is
forever under suspicion. A newspaper that
can be bought isn't worth buying simply be-
cause if it can be bought everyone knows it.
Some people prate about this or that editor
being bought, but it isn't the truth. We doubt
that there's a reputable weekly newspaper in
Florida whose sanctum you can walk into and
pay the editor for doing something that he
knows is against the public good.
Truly, the weekly press of Florida is a
free press-for which the people of our state
should be duly thankful.

SAfter listening to the "jive" jargon of our
younger generation we wonder why teachers
try to teach them the dead languages when
they can't speak the live ones.

Rather than argue with a youngster about
taking a bath, just let him water the lawn.

NOW YOU SEE IT-NOW YOU DON'T
IN LOOKING over the back files of The Star
the other day in search of an article we de-
sired to check on for certain information, we
noticed food prices advertised and just out of
curiosity we began checking them with prices
today. The increase in some lines astounded
us and brought home the fact that our food
dollar today is buying a whole lot less than
it did two or three years ago.
It brought to our mind those rubber dollar
bills that used to be big sellers at country
fairs, and which we still run across occasion-
ally in the hands of jokesters. Rubber money
-imitation dollar bills that stretch and
shrink-and we realized that today rubber
money is no longer a joke-it's a grim reality.
Good United States greenbacks are shrink-
ing-not in size, but in value. They won't
buy as much as they did last year, or the year
before. And the way things are stacking up,
they'll buy considerably less next year than
they do now.
A rough estimate shows that the Port St.
Joe housewife who took $10 to market last
spring to buy food for her family finds that
she needs $11.26 to get the same amount ol
food inow. In the months to come she prob-
ably w-ill need more. Prices are going up, a
penny here, a dime there, week after week.
Government surveys show that pork chops,
for example, jumped 12 cents a pound in the
last six months; eggs soared from 29.4 cents
a dozen in March to 46.9 cents in September.
Textiles have already gone up 30 per cent in
contrast to their 25 per cent rise during the
World War period, according to this survey.
Facts like these bring home the menace of
inflation. It strikes at everybody's pocket-
book. It hits the farmer as well as the wage
earner; the housewife as well as the manu-
facturer. And, with every passing month, it's
going to hit them harder, unless congress
gets busy and passes effective control legis-
lation to put on the brakes and check the
trend.

THE JOB
Now nobody cares how high his real estate
valuation goes, provided his neighbor's goes
along with it, and provided millage goes cor-
respondingly down. But how is any taxpayer
to know what his neighbor pays? Property
is not -listed by, name, but by surveyor's de-
scriptions. Hence, he can get no information
at the court house unless he is able to give
a technical description of his neighbor's prop-
erty such as section, township, range, lot and
block. This system makes discrimination in-
evitable, for it denies to the taxpayer the
comparative information to which he is en-
titled.
The most important work you two public
officials-Governor Holland and Comptroller
Lee-can do is to require that property be
listed under the names and ordinary addresses
of the owners. Then any taxpayer could com-
pare his valuations with those of similar
properties, and could insist upon equalization
on the basis of the assessor's own records.

Robt. Montgomery

I s Perfectly C a s t

In Comedy-Drama

Plays Light Comedy Role In "Un-
finished )Business" At Port
Sunday and Monday

Robert Montgomery is back in
his best-known element, lighl com-
edy, in "Unfinished Business,"
playing Sunday and Monday at the
Port theatre with Irene Dunne co-
starred, although the comedy-
drama has its highly emotional
moments, too.
MIontgomery believes that light
comedy is difficult to play because
it requires most accurate timing.
"Timing'is the most important ele
ment of any performance,"' he
states, "and light comedy calls
upon a performer to establish and
maintain correct timing in situa-
tions which are usually unexpected
and, in many cases, unorthodox."
Montgomery's role in "Unfin-
ished Business" is that of a play-
boy New Yorker who awakens one
morning to find himself married
to a beautiful girl who, it turns
out. is really in love with his
brother.
Romantic and comedy complica-
tions ensue when the ex-playboy
falls in love with the girl.

for building houses, not to mention
building materials, have been sub-
mitted to the FHA's technical di-
vision for approval in the 'past
five years.

Severe shortages in critical de-
fense materials-such as copper,
aluminum, steel, zinc and others
-have caused an immediate
curtailment of all major line con-
struction by electric utility com-
panies (publicly and privately
owned) throughout the United
States. There just isn't any ma-
terial available for this work if
we are to arm our country for
defense.
But since electric power is vitally


necessary for defense and civil-
ian needs, the Supply Priorities
and Allocation Board has given
all utility companies a priority
rating of A-10. However, this
rating enables us to secure ma-
terials only for repairs, main-
tenance and operation.
We know you will want to co-
operate with us in this national
emergency and suggest that you
consult us regarding any major
changes in your service needs.

POPEYE, THE RECRUITING OFFICER, ANCHORS AWEIGH!


AUTHORIZE ENGINEERS
TO DIG BARGE CANAL

Would Follow Same Course As
The Original Ship Canal

The house rivers and harbors
committee has voted to authorize


amry engineers to dig a barge
canal, instead of a ship canal,
across Florida. The authorization
was contained in the billion-dollar
omnibus bill on rivers and harbors.
The house committee chairman
stated that the waterway was in
the bill without specifying type of


construction. He said he undler-
stood the barge canal would cost
about $28,000,00. The proposed
ship canal, on which $5,000,000 has
already been spent, as originally
planned would have cost approxi-
mately $200,000,000.
The barge canal would follow


the same course as the original
ship canal. While authorization is
given in the bill, no definite ap-
propriation for the work has yet
been made.
-----------
Defense will take about 30 per
cent of all paper made next year.


Monochromatic Color Scheme
A monochromatic color scheme
lends itself well to a dining room
with dignified mahogany furniture.
The walls and woodwork painted
straw color, a golden tan carpet
and chair coverings of old gold
complete the scheme.
