Our Country Right or Wrong
THIS MATTER OF FORCED SAVINGS
It's a funny thing, but when we write a
long, hefty editorial on this or that every-
body seems to agree with it, but when we
write a three-line squib about something, the
chances are it will raise a furore or a fur-
row, or something like that.
Last week we commented editorially
thusly: "Britain has had forced savings for
over a year. 'Canada has just recently put it
in the budget. We wouldn't be at. all sur-
prised if we didn't have it here soon." Arid
umpsteen people have been on our editorial
neck about that-just as though we were
going to instigate' the forced savings plan.
We're not particularly in favor of it, and.
apparently the government isn't either, for
in both its legislative and executive branches
the government so far has shown remark-
able agility in avoiding coming to grips with
the forced savings issue. Our old friend Hank
Morgenthau says he hopes that the sales ot
War Bonds will be sufficient to absorb the
excess consumer income, thereby .tempo'r-
arily dodging the issue.
And our congressmen throw up their
hands in holy horror when the subject is
mentioned, probably looking upon the forced
savings idea as a political ogre of horrible
mien-which might cost them votes next No-
vember. They'd probably favor it after the
first of the year.
However, now that we're on this subject
it looks like that, whether for good or bad,
some kind of forced savings will have to be
adopted eventually, because the pockets of
the people, especially those in lower income
brackets, are better lined with coin of the
realm than they ever have been before, due
mainly to the huge sums being spent for war
production. And at the same time the supply
of goods available to we civilians is steadily
diminishing-and it will keep on diminishing
until the war ends, unless some sort of pro-
duction miracle is pulled out of the hat.
And this combination of heaps of ready
cash and less goods on which to spend it
adds up to but one thing-inflation.
And there's only one way to prevent in-
flation, and that is some method of absorb-
ing this excessive income of John Doe Pub-
lic. Sure, taxes could be soaked on every-
thing, but right now the tax bill is pretty
close to the limit, and if more taxes are
poured on there'll go up such a yell that all
our congressmen and lawmakers will start
looking for a rabbit hole to crawl into.
Therefore, (correct us if our reasoning is
erratic) forced savings constitute the answer.
We might not like the idea of forced sav-
ings right now, but after the war is over
and the probable slump shows up, and our
savings are turned loose we'd be singing
the praises of the bright lad who thought up
the idea of forced savings.
Now, if anybody's got a better argument
to put up than that, let 'em step forward
.:now or forever hold their peace.
Wonder if the rubbers in bridge could be
turned in on the scrap drive?
GETTING IN THE SCRAP
Now is the time to start a real "clean-up
campaign" in Gulf county, since the War
Production Board has under way its great
nation-wide scrap materials drive and as the
furnaces are roaring to produce more steel
for tanks, planes and aircraft carries and
Uncle Sam's scrap pile is rapidly diminishing.
The need for scrap and more scrap is becom-
ing more and more urgent, and it's up to us
to search it out.
And Uncle Sam isn't the only one who is
feeling the shortage. Hitler is also having
trouble keeping Axis furnaces fed with scrap.
But what a difference between his way and
the American way of collecting it! Confis-
cation of all unused iron and steel in Ger-
many has been ordered by der fuehrer, with
the campaign enforced by uniformed police
under Heinrich Himmler, Gestapo chief.
We don't do things that way in this coun-
try. No, our people don't need to have their
scrap confiscated. They are eager to help
All kinds of materials are badly needed In
the war effort, and while many people have
the idea that only metal is sought, they
should also remember that the collection cam-
paign will extend to all kinds of old junk,
such as burlap, old rope, hemp, rubber, cop-
per, zinc, lead, and in fact anything that has
any salvage value.
There are people in Gulf--county who can
find plenty of junk around their respective
places while others have already decided that
they have none of it around. It's the latter
class that the promoters of the salvage cam-
paign are trying to reach, because they aiL
the ones who have what has been termed
"hidden assets" so far as this drive is con-
cerned. They would, of course, be willing to
turn it in, but just won't make the effort to
look around and find it.
Now is the time to start looking in the
kitchen, under the house, in the garage and
attic and in the back yard, and be prepared
for 'the big "junk rally" scheduled for some
time next week. It may be only a pair of old
hair curlers, or an old flat iron, but now that
it has served its useftilness around the home,
drag it out and send it on a journey for the
good of democracy.
Raising our quota will not be child's play,
but in every drive of whatever sort Gulf
county has always gone "over the top," sc
let's get busy and "get in the scrap."
THE WORLD TO COME
Today is the anniversary of the Atlantic
Charter, signed by Roosevelt and Churchill,
which pledged the United Nations to make
bur after-the-war world safe for freedom of
speech, freedom of religion, and freedom
from want and fear:
Since that pact was signed, most of us
have given up the companionship of sons and
brothers, though we can be thankful that no
Gulf county boys have yet lost their lives,
new autos, radios, and many cherished ways
of living. It is well to pause, now and then,
to consider what life would be worth without
those four freedoms which we are sacrificing
If inflation comes it will not be the corpor-
ations that will be reduced to misery and
privation. It will be the workers, whose high
wages will buy less and less the higher and
higher they go.-New York Times.
Let it sink deep into your mind that thou-
sands of people are so hungry they would
gladly eat the scraps from your table if they
could get them.-Arcadia Independent.
With the rationing of razor blades, we ex-
pect to see a number of gorgeous beards blos-
soming in Port St. Joe shortly.
Suggestion to our municipal judge: Instead
of giving speeders fines of $10 and costs,
why not assess a fine of one tire.

Eleanor Powell keeps up the

The charming Miss Powell, who

as well as a singer of ear-tickling
tunes. Bert Lahr clowns fore and

FLORIDA'S 1941 INCOME
OVER BILLION DOLLARS
I First Time Since State Formed, At
Old St. Joseph In 1838
Florida's income hit the billion
dollar ceiling last year! And for
the first time since the state's
first constitution was drawn up at
jold St. Joseph in 1838, according
to the research division of the
Florida State Chamber of Com-
merce, in quoting figures fur-
nished it 'by the United States De-
partment of Commerce. One bil-
lion, fifty-five millions was the
exact amount, that sum giving
Florida twenty-third place in the
Union. This state ranks thirty-
sixth in population.
This huge 1941 income is broken
down as follows: $634,000,000 in
net salaries and wage, $63,000,000
earned. in other labor classifica-
tions, $168,000,000 earned in profits
of all types, and $190,000,000 ac-
cruing in dividends and interest.
Floridians last year earned $345,-
000,000 more than they did in 1940,
an increase of 48 per cent, whereas
the national increase for the same
period was 11 per cent.
In 1929, Florida ranked twenty-
ninth in income. Since that year,
Florida's share, in the national in-
come has risen from .86 per cent
to 1.15 per cent.
Approximately 85 per cent of me-
tallic license plates in use in the
United States were made by in-
mates of penal Institutions.
