Our Country Right or Wrong
BEER AND POP WON'T WIN THIS WAR
A new ruling made recently by the Office
of Price Administration regarding priorities
on tires is highly commendable and, to us, it
appears that someone in authority has finally
realized that beer, colas and pop won't help
win the war
The new ruling, in effect, states that beer
and soft drink trucks will no longer be al-
lowed to secure tires, either new or recapped,
after July 28. The ruling also applies to
trucks carrying alcoholic beverages, candy,
flowers, furs, musical instruments and other
luxury items--unless the hauling of such
items is only incidental to the main service
performed by the truck.
We recall how surprised we were to learn
that a beer truck was given a higher priority
rating for the purchase of tires than milk and
bread trucks when rationing regulations were
first.put into effect. This ruling was later
modified to place bread and milk trucks on
the 'amne basis as beer trucks, but we were
never, able to understand why beer and solt
drink trucks were allowed to purchase new
or recapped tires in the first place.
Whoever conceived the idea that the- dis-
tribution and consumption of these commodi-
ties were essential to the war effort certainly
had a queer quirk in his reasoning. It was
our understanding that tires were supposed
to be rationed in order that the military serv-
ices and essential civilian needs might be
taken care of during the period when we
were cut off from our normal sources of rub-
ber supply. But we still say that we can't un-
derstand how beer and pop can be classed as
"essential" needs, either to the military serv--
ices or to civilians.
The OPA is to be highly commended for
making this ruling and might pave the way
for the correction of other obnoxious rulings
and practices in the war program.-Okaloosa

SHARE YOUR CAR
The "Share Your Car" movement is being
inaugurated in Port St. Joe, but at present
only a few of our citizens are considering it
seriously. However, pretty soon they will
participate in it whether they want to or not,
for with the tire situation the way it is and
this section on the vlrge of being included in
the gasoline rationed area, if they don't join
up they won't be able to get supplemental
gasoline ration books, or in many cases tires.
lBut it really shouldn't bother any of us
here in Port St. Joe as far as getting to and
from our places of work because our city is
small and a brisk walk in the morning and
evening probably would do us all a lot of
good. Of course, it might irk us a bit the first
week or so, what with getting those unused
muscles back into shape that have practically
atrophied through riding about in cars, but
in the long run it would do us a world of good.
IS YOUR BUCKET READY?
Several coastal points in the United States
have been'shelled by enemy warships. A ship
has been sunk right in Port St. Joe's front
yard. And it is completely possible that this
section may be attacked from the skies by
enemy planes based in South America. And
if such an attack should come, fire bombs oi
one kind or another will be one of the prin-
cipal weapons used. Unless we are ready to
deal with these fire bombs, disastrous dam-
age to our homes and business establishments
will be inevitable.
When the Gulf County Defense Council was
organized the volunteer auxiliary fire-fighting
organization was formed with enthusiasm.
Then that enthusiasm was slowly lost, and at
the present time the effort has apparently
bogged down. And that is precisely what our
enemies want. They aren't going to tell us
when they will attack, or where-it could be
Port St. Joe as well as any place. They will
depend upon surprise-and an ill-prepared city
would be an easy victim.
Every house in Port St. Joe should be a
fire house. That simply means that all the
people should be ready to combat fire when-
ever and wherever it strikes. We must tie
constantly alert and thoroughly prepared.
Every day brings the time of possible attack
closer. If yofi haven't got your'b-ucket of dry
sand and square-end shovel get it today.
Priceless are the laconic utterances of
America's fighting men. After a bomb attack:
"Sighted sub, sank same." After destroying
an enemy carrier: "Scratch one flat-top." A
Japanese warship, when last seen, was "burn-
ing satisfactorily." Nailing Italian battleships
from two miles up was "like shooting fish in

for the home front. American
casualties already amount to 44,143
killed, wounded or missing. Vic-
tory will cost more lives and call
for much greater sacrifices from
the folks here at home.
Every ibit of material we can
spare must now make weapons for
our troops, and we must see that
trains, trucks, tires and buses are
available to transport men and
weapons and food.
This means further reductions
in civilian goods. So far the stores
in Port St. Joe and elsewhere have
been selling things made before
the situation became critical. But
insiders say shortages and substi-
tutes will be apparent even in the
smallest towns very soon now.
Intensify Salvage Efforts
The salvage drive has 'been in-
tensified. Without scrap metal, our
steel furnaces cannot operate be-
cause its necessary to mix scrap
and new pig iron together to get
steel from iron. The WPB says
our steel mills will have to close
down during the winter unless we
can store up extra heaps of scrap
within the next 90 days. Watch for
the first of a series of ads in Tlhe
Star soon in an endeavor to geo

Tractors and motors will never
wholly replace the Army Mule as a
factor in the mobile units of our
army. The Army Mule is a tradi-
tion and the "mule skinner" is a
breed unto himself. Army Mules
are used by the Field Artillery and
the Cavalry in areas where the
terrain is rough and tractors c' -"
Pack trains in mountainous sec-
tors are often necessary and here
the mule, slow but sure-footed, plays
an important role. Our Army buys
thousands of mules paying from $175
to $190 for each. The mule eats
less, carries more, and some de-
clare is smarter than the horse.
Your purchase of War Bonds and
Stamps helps pay for these Army
Mules. Invest at least ten percent
of your income in War Bonds every
pay day. U. S. Treasury Department

TO THE EDITOR
Dear Mr. Smith:
I want to commend, you for your
timeliness in reprinting "Lstcn
Americans!" from the Stuart News
In The Star last week. This is a
beautiful as well as appropriate
piece of writing, and its emotional
appeal and rhythm make its truth
I wish that every American
could read this editorial. Surely it
cannot be read without a' renewal
of resolve to put aside unifmport-
ant things and get along with the
business of doing something to
speed the war effort. If this .stir-
ring appeal can be read and the
reader remain complacent, perhaps
America is lost already.
Ruth Allen Smith.
