Reports from fishermen in the
Willis Swamp section during the
past few weeks were that the
trees were full ot squirrels., fat
and saucy, and, that the under-
brush whert feed was good, was
literally alive with turkeys. There
have been a few reports of deer
being spotted, but not centered in
any particular locality.
Few changes have been made
in general hunting laws this year.
The principal change is in the re-
striction on shotguns which, if re-
peating or automatic, must be
plugged to threeshell capacity.
The law regarding hunting from
vehicles is still in effect Taking
game from automobiles, airplanes,
power boats or sailboats is still
prohibited. However, th'e hunter
can get into a bateau and paddle
about in his quest tor game.

TAX HEADACHES IN STORE
U P THERE in \Washington there's a heck
of a lot of talk about prices, inflation and
taxes-but the most talk is about taxes. How-
ever, it's largely talk, for nobody seems to
want the responsibility of doing something
about anything. Everybody wants to go on.
record as warning about the horrors of the
coming inflation, but nobody wants to be
held responsible for fathering another, stift
tax bill or a pirice-fixing bill with teeth in it.
Secretary of the Treasury Morgenthau has
suggested a 15 per cent check-off tax on 1942
incomes. This would be collected monthly
during 1942, while us poor taxpayers are
still worrying about the taxes due on our
1941 income. In other words, it would be like
paying almost two years' taxes in one year.
Congressmen turned a deaf ear to the pro-
posal. One congressman, whose reaction can
probably be regarded as indicative of the at-
titude of all, said "The check-off is okeh it
you'll give me an exemption."
The treasury believes this would be the
most practical way of collecting revenue, but
congress believes it would work an unrea-
sonable hardship to ask the check-off on 1942
incomes and salaries, as most people have no
notion of how severely they will be hit by
the 1941 income tax, and should have a chance
to readjust themselves before being hit by a
15 per cent cut in wage or salary-and be-
sides a lot of congressmen are up for re-elec-
tion in 1942.
Congress is also worrying about demands
for wage increases in anticipation of higher
prices. The race between wages and prices
inevitably leads to the age-old inflation spiral
where prices rise because of higher wage
costs, and wages in turn are pushed up be-
cause of higher prices, and everyone suffers.
Our readers may think this is pretty dull
stuff we're dishing out here, but we advise
them to steel themselves, for they ain't seen
nothing' yet in the way of taxes; and prices,
inflation and related subjects are bound to
be big news for months to come, and the tax
and price controversy is going to play an Im-
portant role in the coming 1942 congressional
No, that head doesn't mean that the editor
of The Star has turned Nazi. We were just
thinking about how the former Austrian pa-
perhanger who has become dictator of prac-
tically all Europe, was born Adolf Schicki-
gruber. His father wasn't particularly stuck
on that name, so he had it changed to Hitler.
We believe it would be a good idea if all
newspapers and radio stations henceforth re-
fer to Hitler as "Der Fuerher Adolf Schickl-
gruber." It would certainly be hard to scare
the democratic peoples of the world with
such a name, and it would be hard even for
a fanatical Nazi not to smile if he had to
greet his friends with a "Heil Schicklgruber."'
Hitler sounds sort of menacing- Schickl-
gruber only funny, like something from the
old Kolb and Dill shows.
We'd be willing to bet Hitler would tear
his hair if he was referred to in this country
only as Adolf Schicklgruber.
ALL-OUT WAR IN THE ATLANTIC
With the sinking of the Reuben James and
the heavy loss of American lives, there is no
doubt now about the United States and .,er-
many's full-fledged war in the Atlantic. Prac-
tically, it is an undeclared war. And though
our government does not intend to let Adolf
Schicklgruber force the blame of the conflict
on the United States, the seriousness of the
situation has not been lessened.
Although it has not been accompanied by
a formal declaration of hostility by either
side, this war is real, and it comes home to
us here with the loss of three. Northwest
Florida boys on the Reuben James. The
fact that the two nations are so opposed to
each other by every standard brings home
the reality of the present conflict.
Germany has set out to sweep American
vessels from the sea, and the United States
has sworn to uphold its right to freedom of
the seas. The United States is determined
that the great English-speaking nations,
based on democratic institutions, shall not go
down. There is no other choice. The United
States is facing its greatest danger in history.
If the line of supply to Britain is cut, the
whole system of free government is in dan-
ger. The United States cannot take that risk.
cannot allow Britain to become isolated from
its allies, Russia and the United States. To
desert Britain and Russia now would be re-
peating the recent history of France. What
happened in France will happen, and quickly,
to Great Britain if the sea lanes are not kept
For those reasons, it is no longer just a
job of keeping Britain supplied. It is a job for
the United States navy to fight, to the fin-
ish, the all-out war in the Atlantic.
The fact that farm income for 1941 will
reach the highest figures in many years is
being widely publicized. However, that does
not mean that all is well with agriculture.
'he farmer's cost of labor, materials and
taxes is also reaching record levels.
The upshot is that the farm problem is not
solved. The farmer remains in an unfavorable
position in comparison with industry and la-
bor. This should not be the case, since, when
we come right down to facts, all wealth
comes from the land.
While driving to Tallahasse during the
week-end we noticed that the tin can tourists
are arriving in large numbers, but they are
not driving "tin can lizzies" with home-made
trailers like they used to. The very latest
model cars are pulling modern factory-made
steel trailers, and in most cases the trailer
matches the color of the car.
..A lot of us pause over the pronunciation of
some of the names of Russian and Turkish
cities appearing in the war news, forgetting
that here in Florida we have towns named
Pocataw, Salofka, Kolopec, Chuluota, Bithia
and Holopaw, not to mention Wewahitchka
and Two Egg.
Let us give thanks on this coming Thanks-
giving Day for the things that might have
happened .to us and did not happen, and look
forward to a brighter future.
