APRIL 1 DEADLINE FOR
FILING PERSONAL AND
Returns on personal and intan-
gible property must be made be-
fore April 1, according to Tax As-
sessor Sammy Patrick. All tax-
payers must comply with the law
or accept the valuation placed by
the assessor, and pay a penalty of
10 per cent of the tax due. There
is a constitutional exemption of
$500, but a return must be filed
under oath, even. though no tax
will be due.
Under the present law, which
was enacted by the 1941 legisla-
ture, practically everyone is re-
quired to file a personal property
tax return. If you have not done
so, and even-though your property
is not. worth $500, it will be to
your interest to secure the neces-
sary blank and file your return

: Our Country -_ Right or Wrong
.KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK
In all history there is no record of a na-
tion emerging victoriouss from a war that it
entered leaden-hearted and unconvinced. To-
day, due to the swift turn of events, we arc
united-far from leaden-hearted, and con-
'vinced finally that the vast expanse of oceans
are no longer barriers, that you can't do
ibusiness- with Hitler, that this is our war as
well as England's or Russia's or China's and
that our ideals are not shoddy but well worth
Japan's crafty and treacherous attack and
the subsequent declarations of war have done
what no publicist, no bickering congress, no
army of minute men with pretty speeches
could ever do-they have produced a flood-
tide of American miglt united and girding
itself for the enormous tasks ahead.
Port St. Joe, like almost every other city,
seemed to revert to an apathetic attitude in
regard to the war after the first few days of
'the-Japanese move, but, now there is grow-
ing, due to the activities of the Gulf Counilty
Defense Council, more of a tense feeling--
the thought that "it can happen here"-
and the courses of instruction in civilian de-
fense now underway are being well attended
by attentive and eager listeners, fully aware
.of the need for adequate civilian protection,
fully convinced that "it can happen here."
his war undoubtedly will be long-though
we all hope it will be over soon; it will settle
.dowir'to hard and tough work;this business
of civilian defense may become an unexcit-
ing routine over the period of months or
years that we are engaged in this costly job
of coming out victorious over our enemies,
We in Port St. Joe may be victims of a
"'nuisance raid" similar to.that at Santa Bar-
bara, Calif., recently, due to the location here
.of the terminus of the St. Joe-Chattanooga
gasoline pipe line and the mill of the St. Joe
Paper company. We trust that such a raid
-will never occur, but we must be prepared
for that day should it come.
It may be a sacrifice on the part of some
of us to attend these defense classes, but be-
fore this. thing is over we are going to have
to make some REAL sacrifices, many of
them; but in sacrificing, in working harder,
working longer, we will begin to comprehend
that we are working and sacrificing for
something really worthwhile-our liberty-
and feel proud that we are a small, but vital,
cog in the all-out effort for victory.
CURB UNNECESSARY RUBBER WASTE
With every mile that Japan smashes for-
ward in the South Pacific the problem ol
our rubber shortage becomes more acute.
Now that Java has fallen, we will be cut off
completely- from our largest source of raw
Canadian Supplies Controller A. H. Wil-
liamson has described rubber as the gravest
problem confronting the United Nations. He
has gone so far as to say that this shortage
is so serious that our ability to fight an all-
out war is imperiled.
If this is true, and there seems no reason
to believe the contrary, then even more dras-
tic rubber rationing than now exists should
be placed in force.
For instance, there should be immediate
discontinuance of bus service in those see-
tions of the nation where other duplicate
transportation exists. At the same time there
should be an elimination of iong-distancu
trucking of goods wherever an alternative
rail movement is possible. Furthermore there
should be placed into effect at once as a tire
conservation measure, federal decrees re-
quiring drastic reduction of driving speeds,
as well as strict enforcement of existing ve-
hicular overloading laws.
Indeed, it is not too much to suggest that
every car owner be obliged to conform to a
very limited mileage every day, a measure
that in effect would eliminate all pleasure
driving for the duration.
The government cannot afford to delay
such legislation at the risk of lengthening
the struggle or endangering its outcome.-

GIVE THEM THE WEAPONS
It is the same story over and over: Give
our fighters the needed weapons, and they'll
win. For a current instance, eight American
bombers attack a formidable Japanese con-
voy Napproaching Australia, with the result
that two ships are sunk, four set afire and
one beached. If there were enough heavy
bombers and. auxiliaries at the battle fronts,
their toll of the enemy would soon turn the
tide. They have performed marvels of skill
and valor, even against odds of five and, ten
to one, but they cannot keep going without
In a dispatch to The Journal from "somc-
where in Burma," Leland Stowe sums up the
situation in the words of a young American
airman who wrought wonders over Rangoon:
"All we can do is fight with what they give
us to fight with. I'll tell you the people who,
more than'anybody else, can win this war to-r:
us right now. They're the workers in every:
factory in the United States." What a chal-

A WORKABLE TAX PLAN?
C. C. Wilson, president of the local Brother-
hood of Paper Makers and announced candi-
date for representative in the legislature from
Gulf county, was talking to the editor Mon-
day of the possibility of a sales tax in Florida
to provide money for our schools and roads
which will be drastically curtailed due to the
drop in gasoline sales caused by the tire and
car rationing program.
We agreed with Mr. Wilson that money
for these two departments would have to be
forthcoming from some source, and as almost
every other imaginable tax is now being usec
by the state, it probably would have to be
raised by a sales tax.
I-owever, our candidate had another idea
for raising the money which sounded good
to us and which would not hit the low-income
wage earner,.which w6uld be the case if a
sales tax were imposed, as those in the lower
income bracket are the least able to pay a
Mr. Wilson's plan would be to place a tax
on salaries of workers beginning at, say,
those drawing $40 per week, Such a plan, In
his estimation, would place a portion of the
tax burden where it belongs-on the shoul-
ders of a lot of people who now in no way
outside of the usual hidden taxes which we
all pay, contribute to the upkeep of our state
government and institutions.
