SYNTHETIC RUBBER
WILL GO TO ARMY

. Residents of Port St. ,Joe are
warned not to 'be misled by re-
ports that synthetic rubber pro-
duction will soon provide new tires
for joyl riding, as there' is. nothing
to it. Some synthetic rubber will
be produced but the army and
military projects will get it all.
The War Production Board has
authorized the RFC to 'provide fa-
cilities to increase to 700,000 tons
the. production of Buna S syn-
thetic rubber in plants to be in op-
eration by the. end of 1943. This
will increase by 100,000 tons the
previously authorized Buna S pro-
duction andi will be in addition to
100,060 tons of Butyl synthetic
rubber and neoprene.
The WPB says, that "all the
synthetic rubber to be produced
for many months, must be reserved
for military uses and none will be
available for civilian uses, such as
automobile tires"
:So save the tires you have-
they'll probably, be. the last you'll
get for a long, long time!

GOVERNMENT MAY
USE BARGES AND TUGS
TO TRANSPORT OIL

Governor Spesslardl Holland has
been informed that the federal
government plans to order 300
barges and150 tugs for use in the
transportation of oil from Gulf
ports via inland waterways tb the
Atlantic seaboard. This equipment,
it is claimed, would have.a carry-
ing capacity of 35,000 barrels of
oil or gasoline a day.
lo information is, available as
to how long it will take to secure
the barges and tug boats or when
the service may be expected to
start.

INVERT SUGAR SYRUP
WILL HELP TO MAKE
RATIONS GO FURTHER

Home-makers can make their
sugar rations go further by mak-
ing and using invl.rt sugar syrup,
the Florida Agricultural Experi-
ment Station points out.
Invert sugar syrup, which is 30
per cent sweeter than sugar, is.
very good, for sweetening fruits
and vegetables, in baking, and in,
making ice cream.
The syrup is easily made by;
mixing one pound of sugar and
!seven ounces of water, then add-
inug 1/ teaspoon of tartaric acid..

mixture for 30 minutes. Each cup-

Ginger Rogers Tops

In Riotous Comedy

"Roxie--Hart,' Playing at the Por
Theatre Sunday and- Monday,
Is Cute and Hilarious

Ginger Rogers has given an
other superb performance. In the
title role of "Roxie Hart" she is
the most demure load of dynamite
that ever blaatedi across a screen.
She dances! She's coy, cute and
hilarious! And so is the picture,
which plays Sunday and Monday
at the Port theatre.
In a role that is distinctly dif-
ferent, Ginger gives an outstand-
ing portrayal of the little girl who
could, do no wrong no matter how
hard she. tried.
'The picture has been made for
laughs. Burlesquing Chicago in the
roaring days when a pretty woman
could get a "not guilty" verdict
from any jury, it tells the whole
hilarious story of "Roxie Hart."
When a man confesses to murder,
a wide-awake reporter kills the
story and suggests' that Roxie let
herself be tried, for the crime.
Learning of the publicity she will
gain from the trial and the prom-
ise of a vaudeville contract, she
agrees to stand trial-for her ca-
reer's sake.
A top-flight criminal lawyer is
hired (Adolphe Menjou). the news-
pap rs play, it up as a sihoow, s.pe
cial reporters are assigned, news
real men and radio cover the
event, and Ro:xie becomes a na-
tionally known figure.
George Montgomery plays as the
cutb reporter who believes that
Roxie is innocent. Others in the
cast arc Lynn Overian, Phil Sil-
vers, Nigel Bruce and Sara A'!-
good.

GEN. BLENDING PRAISES
SCREEN-OUT ACTION HERE
George Snowden, head of the
Gulf County Defense Counoil, this
week wrote to General Albert H.
Blanding, Coordination Dirctoi,
Actions Division of the State De-
fense Council, informing him of
the "screen-out" now in effect in
Port St. Joe, Highland View and
Beacon Hill.
In reply, Gen. Blanding wrote:
"Referring to your letter, I am
glad to learn that you have taken
advanced action on a screen-out at
Port St. Joe. I think it is
a wise precaution-on..your part."'

palaver takin' place now, all over.
It's givin' the war a run for its
money. We, can git up a bigger-
swe'at over nothing' than any na-

The furore is about "slacks."
But the way folks snicker when a
chunky mama breezes byl in her

I can do so, I always put in an

snickerin)' and making' jokes, we
should feel sorry. Maybe mama
ain't gpt a mirror to her name.
Think of it-no fulllength mir-
ror! We should give her the bene-
fit of the doubt and muffle our
snicker.
"Slacks" is what they call 'em.
That was the first mistake. That
got people to wonderin'-and then
talkin'. I've scanned no slacks yet.
that you could, say were slack, ex-
cept it was maybe around the

recent-like I saw an ensemble, of

Now that we are at war, copper that ordinarily
would go into new power lines must be used for bul-
lets to blast the Japs and Nazis and for other vital
military and naval production. Because copper is one
of the most essential war materials, the War Pro-
duction Board has placed strict priorities on all
civilian uses of copper. No longer can we extend
lines out into rural areas or into suburban parts of
cities and towns as we could a few months ago
without the approval of the War Production Board.

Under present conditions new homes usually

,. Our Country --C Right-or Wrong

WE SALUTE THE GRADUATES

Next Tuesday night twenty-six young men
.and women will be graduated from the Port
St. Joe high school to begin their life v. ork
in a world torn by storm and strife, and we
know that these young people feel the seri-
ousness of the situation facing them.
Probably some of these graduates will go
on .to college, others .will settle down here
to make, their future -homes, and undoubtedly
--some 'otfthe young men will feel the urge to
join- the armed forces of our country. But
whatever course they choose to take, we
know that they have high ideals and feel
great impulses at this time, and that is some-
thing we need. We need the vision of youth,
its hope, its faith. The battles of tomorrow
will be won'by youth.
We salute the class of '42 and wish them
godspeed on their life's journey.

THE FRUITS OF HOARDING

A news dispatch tells of a man who regis-
tered for a sugar ration book and reported
.that he had 15,0000 pounds of sugar in his
possession. When questioned, he said he. had
feared a shortage two years ago and had
been accumulating his stock ever since.
That is a particularly glaring example of
-the kind of action that, if widely followed
even on .a small scale, will make an extreme
extension of rationing inevitable, and we sin-
cerely trust that no one in Port St. Joe will
make a practice of hoarding any foodstuffs,
foirthoarding makes scarcities-and scarcities,
in turn, make iron-handed government con-
trol unavoidable.
Your local merchants have been fighting
hoarding. They have been urging the.publhc
to buy normally, and to pay no attention to
wild rumors which say that practically every-
thing we need will soon be unobtainable.
'That advice is one hundred per cent wortih-
-while. If all of us follow it, there will be far
"fewer shortages, and rationing can be held
to the minimum.
The merchant is the consumer's best pro-
tection. That's true whether the merchant
deals in clothing, general merchandise, food,
'hardware or anything else. Your merchant
'knows conditions. He is in a far better posl-
tion than the rest of us to anticipate what
the future will bring. And when he says
"Don't hoard!" he simply talks common
'sense.


By prohibiting further manufacture of fish-
ing tackle, we get the idea that all this talk
-from Washington about keeping up the na-
tional morale is just that much bunk. We'd
rather go fishing any day than to a fan dance.
Nothing builds up a calm determination to
'stay with things to the bitter end like hold-
ing a pole for hours and hours in the hot sun
trying to get a bite or a nibble. Fan dancing
may suit Eleanor better, but we'd rather
fish.-Lake Wales Highlander.


Wouldn't it be nice if fish would bite like
people bite at a fish story?


THE SUPREME TEST
In a recent speech before .the American
Society of Newspaper' Editors, Donal'd M.
Nelson made these thought-provoking re-
marks: "Our free institutions are meeting
their superme test.
"Our enemies say that free 'instit-ttions, are
inefficient: therefore they have abolished
them. They say free labor canhot- serve a war
economy efficiently; so they have destroyed'
free labor and made every worker a slave.
They say free industry cannot be as. useful
in a war. economy as state-controlled indus-
try; so they have put all industry under
tight controls and made of every industrialist
a servant. And they say that' a free press is
a hindrance to a nation which is fighting for
its life; so they have destroyed the free press
and made of every editor a lackey.
"It is up to us to prove' that they are
wrong-by showing that our free institutions,
our free labors our free induAsry and our free
press give us more strength than they can
muster through all their controls. We shall
prove it in the way of free men, by showing
that free men driven by their own loyalty
and determination are better than slaves
driven by their master's lash.."
The free institutions of this country must
meet this supreme test or -perish. There is
no middle ground. No one who knows the his-
tory of this nation doubts they will meet it.
All our freedoms depend pn one another.
Without freedom in industry we could not
have. freedom of- labor. Without freedom ol
the press we could not have free, represen-
tative government. Dictatorship, by its very
nature, must be all-encompassing. It must de-
stroy all freedoms-for all freedoms are its
enemy.
'We will win this war in the way of free
men. And while we are winning it, we must
make sure that when the war is over we will
have a'world in'which men can still speak
their minds, still do the work they want, still
operate theii- own businesses. That is the
kind of world we are fighting for, a world
in which every man, no matter what his or-
igin, is free to go as far as his abilities can
take him.

EDITORIAL GETS RESULTS
The editor of The Star, who is practically
holding down the airplane spotting post by
himself, seven days a week, last week kicked
over the traces to a certain extent in an edi-
torial titled "The Danger Is Real," in which
he damned the apathetic attitude of the gen-
eral public in regard to civilian defense and
in particular the dearth of volunteer ob-
servers to man the airplane spotting unit.
The editorial relieved Ye Ed's pent-up feel-
ings to a certain extent and brought gratify-
ing results in that a number of individuals
came forth and volunteered as observers.
As one woman stated, "I really didn't re-
alize the seriousness of the situation until I
read your editorial. Now I'm more than will-
ing to do my bit." If about thirty more peo-
ple will come to this same realization we
should soon have our observation post on a
paying basis.

"\These new air-conditioning outfits wash
the air. Now we want to see somebody invent
a machine to iron it.


If we would take the trouble to examine the
lining of the Japanese war cloud we would
find German silver.


In the old days a girl used to be mostly
bustle, and today the same holds- true for
the girls in our civilian defense forces.

WOMAN'S CLUB WILL MISS MARTHA BELIN AND
SPONSOR WELFARE PROJECT j WILLARD MYERS ARE WED


The executive board of the Por
St. Joo Woman's cub met Wednes-
day afternoon at the home of Mrs
'Ployd Hunt in a call meeting to
consider projects for the coming
club year.
It was d-cidedi that the club will
sponsor some welfare project for
next year, since the club rooms
are adequately furnished for the
duration of the war. This project
wil libe the one the club considers
most urgently in need and of the
most benefit to, the community as
a whole.
Due to the resignation of Mrs.
Edwin Ramscy as corresponding
secretary, the board. elected Mrs.
Jesise Smith to that office. Mrs.
Ramsy will act as chairman of the
Fine Arts department for another
year. Mrs. Basil E. Kenney will
be in charge of the defense die-
partment.
Department andr committee chair-
men selected their members, after
which Mrs. Hunt served refresh-
ments to the ten members present.

Mr. and Mrs. B. H. Dickens had
as, their guests over the week-end
Mr. andl Mrs. Johnny Stokes of
Pensacola.


These are days of all-
out defense when Amer-
icans need to conserve
every bit of health, save
every possible minute of
time, and avoid the waste
of a single penny. Food
and a well balanced diet
are as vitally important
as planes, munitions,
guns and ships!


Fortunately, millions of American homes are especially
well prepared because they have the help of modern,
efficient and economical electric kitchen appliances.
All families with such appliances can easily save food,
time and money if they will use them wisely and
completely.

The National Nutrition Program is gathering momen-
tum on all fronts, and America's homemakers have
taken the consumer's pledge for National Defense. The
nation's kitchens are on the march preserving and
preparing the foods to help keep America strong, and
electricity is playing a strong leading role.

Defense Council

Notes
:Released By Chairman George Snowden
ClliIllll lllllllll lllll lUH UIIWIIIIII IIIIUlll1l l 111lllllllll
It is intteres4ing to know that
-voluntary contributions to the Gulf
County Dfense .Council are de-
ductible -from federal income tax.
A .recent bulletin just received
from the State Defense Council in
Tallahasse3 quotes the following
opinion rendered by the commis-
sioner of internal revenue:
"SeCtion 23 (o.) of the Internal
Revebuie Code, as amended, pro-
vids for the allowance, as a deduc-
*tion in computing.net income of an
individual, of a contribution or gift,
payment of which is made within
the taxable year to or for the use
of the United States, any state,
territory, -or any political subdi-


vision thereof, or the District of
Columbia, for exclusively public
purposes to an amount which in all
the above cases combined, does not
exceed 15 per centum of the tax-
payer's net income as computed
without the benefit of that sub-
section.
"The answer to the question
submitted by you will depend upon
all of the facts in each case.
Therefore, no general, ruling can
be made with respect to the mat-
ter. However, it may be stated
that the bureau holds that where
a committee has been formed by
the governor of the state to func-
tion as an, agency of the state
government in carrying forward
the progress of national defense
in co-operation with the federal
government, contributions made to
the committee by individuals are
allowable deductions for federal
income tax purposes under the
provisions of section 23 (0o) of the
code."

TO THE DEMOCRATIC VOTERS



OF GULF COUNTY

The second primary will take place Tuesday, May 26th, 1942, and I
sincerely trust that each and every voter will go to the polls and cast-their
ballot' for one of the two candidates whose names, will appear on the
ticket for Representative in the Legislature. I have the utmost faith in
the judgment -of the American people and, although each candidate usually
believes himself to be the best qualified for the office he seeks, in the
final .analysis it is the people who are ,the-best judges of the qualifica-
tion of the several candidates. 'ff you believe that I Jam'the best quali-
fied to serve our county, state ,a4nl nation as \rrepirsentative in the legis-
lature, then I would appreciate your vote and support; if you believe that
another candidate is thi best qualified and can best serve you, ,hen it is
your obligation to support the other candidate. In times like these, our
county, state and nation need the best rrepresetation -possible, and it is
'for the people to say who is 'he best.- I promise you that if re-elected,
I 1 illgive you the very best that is in me. 'I shall at all times be at
your service and working for the best 'and surest and quickest way to win
this war that we are now engaged in.
During the past few days, information has come to me that it is be-
ing said that if I am elected iI .will support a sales tax. I want to here
and now brand this report as utterly false. I will not support or vote for
a sales tax in any form. My record in -past sessions of the legislature
confirms my opposition to a sales tax. The legislative journal of the 1941
session, at page 788 (which I will be pleased to show to anyone) records
my vote AGAINST a sales tax. I do not believe that any additional tax
of any kind will be necessary, if the 'legislature will re-allocate the pres-
ent sources of revenue being received'by the state. The state is now pay-
ing out millions of dollars annually on old road bonds. "We can stop pay-
ing: .n these bonds for the duration of the war, re-allocate this money to
schools, health, old age pensions and other necessary functions of govern-
ment, and thereby eliminate the need for any new state taxes of any kind.
Our Federal government will need new taxes, therefore the state must
economize, re-allocate and avoid any new tax, leave this field to the Fed-
eral government.
SThe people are familiar with my record in the legislature, and know
thai when I make a promise 'to do or not to do a thing that I .stick to
that promise.
During the last session, and before, I stood up and fought for the
rights of the man who labors. In the 1941 session the greatest and best
organized attack ever made upon the rights of labor was made, and I am
proud to say that I am listed among the'real friends of labor; that I stood
up on my hind legs and fought for labor and aided in the defeat of anti-
labor legislation. I believe that the rank and file of labor appreciates my
efforts in their behalf and will now assist me in my campaign for re-
election. If re-elected, I promise that I shall continue to fight for the
rights and best interest 'of labor.
It is my sincere wish and hope that each and every voter will take
advantage of the great American privilege of the secret ballot; we are
one of the few nations in the world today where we can go vote and no
one other than the voter knows who the vote is cast for. Let us show
our appreciation of this privilege by going to the polls and voting-vote
for one of the two candidates.
Thank you, and know that I will appreciate your consideration next
Tuesday.
Sincerely yours,


E. Clay Lewis, Jr.
