Original Measure Called For
Apalachicola As Terminus;
Changed to Port St. Joe
With one pipe line from Port St.
Joe already doing its ;bit in sup-
plying the eastern seaboard with
petroleum products, via Chatta-
nooga, Tenn., there is a strong
possibility that this city will be-
come .the t rminal of a second line
stretching to Jacksonville. This
fact is brought out in 'a United
Press dispatch from Washington,
dated' last Sunday, as follows.
"Chainman Joseph J. Mansfield
ot the rivers and. harbors commit.
tee, said Saturday he would ask
for early house consideration of
the 'bill to authorize expendiiture
of $144,000,000 for a Florida pipe-
line and improvement of the Galt
ana Atlantic coastal waterw,-;zys.
"The bill, approved by the com-
mittee Friday, would authorize a
pipe line from Port St. Joe, Fia.,
to Jacksonville, connecting the
Gulf Inland, waterway system to
the Atlantic ,seaboard waterway.
Both waterway systems would Ibe
improved and extended, with a
new barge canal to be built from
Port Inglis, Fla., to Jacksonville,
and the Texas coastal waterway
extended f-rom Corpus Christi
south n to _near__thelMenipani, border.,-
"Mansfield said he *Would ask
Speaker Sam Raylburn and Demo-
cratic Leader John W. McCor-

bill up as soon as possible."

Our Country Right or Wrong
TO OUR DEAD
Another' Memorial Day will arrive tomor-
roa-nhd we will observe it in a world resound-
ing to the din .6f battle. We will pay tribute
tomorrow to'the men who sacrificed their
lives-and who today are sacrificing their
liyes-that their country might preserve the
institutions and ideals established by our fore-
For the heroic dead we shall offer prayer
and bare our heads in tribute to their patriot-
ism. For the living, whether they are among
us as. healthy citizens, racked with pain on a
hospital bed, or in the front lines, we can
*pay.no better tribute or do no greater service
than to rededicate ourselves to the ideals for
which they fought and are fighting for to.
day-ideals that are in great danger today.
What we have and are we owe in large
measure to the brave souls who gave their
lives that we might live a free and unfettered
people. Their service was no greater, how.
ever, than the inspiration they furnished.
Each has contributed equally to our advance-
meit as a nation.
Their lips are stilled-and yet they are-fiut
silent. The dead have left a message for the
living, and the message is that we keep in-
tact the glorious heritage they fought to
We know not what the dead may see or'
hear or think, but of this we may be cer-
tain: That if they are observers of the liv-
ing, they will take more account of the high
resolve within our souls than of the flowers
we sirew tomorrow upon their graves.
PIPELINES ARE THE ANSWER
More than 150 merchant ships-a large
number of them tankers-have been sunk off
the Atlantic coast since December 7, 1941.
That's a lot of steel sent to Davy Jones*
locker and an effort is being made to build
ships faster than they can be sunk.
Why not.cancel the construction of tankers
and use the steel so saved' to build pipelines
to serve those sections which in the past have
been dependent upon tankers for oil and gas-
oline?4Pipelines can be laid rapidly and they
would not only deliver the goods during.this
emergency, but would continue giving service
after the war is over.
The whole problem is transportation-there
is plenty of petroleum for all purposes,.bu
it can't be delivered to some points where it
is needed-unless pipelines are constructed.
There has been some grumbling and grous-
ing about the "dim-out" in effect in Port St.
Joe, but the Tallahassee Democrat, in an edi-
torial on the darkening of Florida's shoreline,
says this of our fair city: "Not waiting for
orders, Port St. Joe, beyond the Eastern De-
ferise Command, has voluntarily blacked out."
And, we might add, Panama City has re-
alized the halo cast out by the city's lights
and has joined the ranks of voluntarily dark-

MOST IMPORTANT' HOUSE CLEANING
Never before in ththistory of Port St. Joe
has spring house cleaning been so important.
Because 1942 is the critical year for the de-
mocracies, it is unlikely that there will be
such an important sing house cleaning in
any future year. Wh,? War industries are
waiting for the coppe; iron, brass, rags and
rubber that Port St. J(e housewives will drag
out of hiding and start on- the way to be made
into tanks, planes and gins.
Every home in Port S Joe harbors some
item or items of past tsulnes.s which,coulc
go into the crucibles of var and come out in
the shape of a lethal wea on to turn against
the Japanazis. Now Ucle Sam wants ail
these items and asks thai they be pulled out
of hiding and put to us for the armies of
There is an added reas n for making this
spring house cleaning in 'ort St. Joe one oi
the most thorough in a century. Gus Creech,
head of the auxiliary fireman's unit of the
Gulf County Defense Cou cil, points out that
attics and garages full df objects are safe
resting places for incendiary bombs. Picture
the difficulty of a home fire bomb fighter in
an attic full of old begs, stoves, electrical
equipment 'and hanging nothing!
Defense of our homes s an' important fac-
tor in national defense. A population, burned
out and homeless, can cin produce nothing
to keep the army supplied it must devote ex-
tra time and energy to the difficult task oi
trying to shelter and carc for homeless fam-
ilies. Defeat by fire bomb on the home front
would, therefore, weaken the nation and leave
the army and navy helpless.
That gives us a double-barreled reason for
making Port St. Joe's 942 spring house
cleaning the best and moit thorough in his-
tory. It will strengthen the home front and
put weapons in the hands bf the boys on the
HOW'S YOUR LAUNDRY?
The city of Port St. Joe in the past has
had two laundries established, but both were
compelled to go out of business because of
laundries in nearby cities sending their trucks
here and cutting prices to such an extent that
the local concerns could not compete and
stay in business. Then the outside laundries
boosted their prices.
Now, with no tires available, this outside
laundry service has been discontinued and
our people have to get their laundry done as
best they can.
Had residents of the city patronized home
industry, even though it might have cost a
bit more, they would have a laundry here to-
The money they paid out to laundries in
neighboring cities went to build up those
cities; money was taken out of circulation
here, to the detriment of local business con-
cerns. Had they traded at home, the money
would have been retained in circualtion here
and they would have gotten another crack at
it. But when it went to Marianna, Quincy
and Panama City it was 'gone forever.
This principle applies to all commodities,
and wherever possible we should always
trade at home-it builds our home commun-
ity, not neighboring communities. Think of
this the next time you drag out a mail order
catalog to order something that you can buy
just as well right here in Port St. Joe.
There's always a silver lining to every dark
cloud. With tires, cars and gasoline on the
ration list our national traffic death toll is
due to take a big drop.
Time Marches On! and the impatient fish-
ermen will be all set to go next Monday
Anyway, the race for representative from
Gulf county was a good one-and apparently
the best man won. .

Pointing out that be wAs fa-
miliar with the country through
which the proposed pipe line would
pass, Mayor Sharit informed theh
committee that it would be advis-
able "that the western terminus of
the pipe line should be located in
Port St. Joe, andl that it should be
built in a northeasterly direction
to a point near Monttcello or
:Greenville, through lands belong-
ing to the federal forest service
and those of one, large landowner

ting the necess'ainy rightstof-way

"If, to save pipe line mileage, an
attempt were made to follow the
Gulf coast from either Port St.
Joe or the vicinity of Apalachicola
Bay, great difficulties would' be en-
]countered on. account of the very
'dense jungles, marshes and, the
heavy surface lime rock deposits
which are found parallel to the
'Gulf coast in that area," Sharit
The mayor concluded his talk
before the committee by saying:
"Therefore may I suggest ,and
urge that in the light of the'ii ats
recited above and other provable
considerations, that this committee
fix the western terminus of the
pipe line at Port St. Joe, Florida."
Congressman Bob Sikes has also
been working on enactment of this
legislation, and in a statement be-
fore the rivers and harbors com-
mittee Sikes said: "In Florida we
have long been convinced that the
carrying power of the intracoastal
waterway and' of the dock and
harbor facilities of our state have
been used) for 'but a small part of
their capacity. Through the greater
use of barges, pipelines and rail-
roads we can speedily and effec-
tively help to reduce the present
emergcniy, in gasoline and oil sup-
plies. All we seek is an opportun-
ity to show how quickly we can
put to work men and materials
not actively engaged in the war
'Sikes pointed out to the com-
mitte: that there are many small
yards with lumber and workers
needed to.,b..build wooden barges
and towing craft, saying: "These
can he put into service to relieve
the steel barges which are re-
quired for gasoline shipments."
As a result of the presentation
of facts, figures and data pertain-
ing to the facilities at Port St. Joe
the bill was revamped to place the
western terminal of the pipe line
here instead of at Apalachicola or
Carrabelle, as witness the press
dispatch quoted above and the fol-
lowing telegramin received Friday
by Mayor Sharit fronr W. T. Ed;
