TO HELP 'WIN THE PEACE'
There is under consideration in Washington ihis week
an important piece of legislation, designed to keep twenty
million American automobiles rolling for the duration of
the war, to which, we believe, entirely too little attention
has been paid by the public.
This bill-it is called the Ellender-Patman 'ire Con-
servation Bill-offers definite, sensible solution to the
problem' of how to keen the nation's vital motor transport
moving in the face of a rubber shortage. This tivould be
accomplished by retreading 30,000.000 tires every jear with
all-reclaim-rubber capping stock; and to those who point
o the shortage of rubber and.say it cannot be done, the
Rubber Manufacturers' association has said that it CAN
be done. The bill would stabilize tire prices and release for
immediate sale those odd-sized and lower-level tires which
are obviously of no value to the war effort.
There is a further provision in this bill which, it seems
o us, is even more important thah its other sections, from
he standpoint of "winning.the peace" which must follow
he winning of the wa". Designed to contribute to the
maintenance of free enterprise, this measure provides that,
or the duration of the war, all tire sales and service be
urned over to independent tire and gasoline dealers, so
hat these "little businesses." by getting all the business
hat is left, may be sustained until Victory brings a lifting
Df tire sale restrictions.
This would mean that the rubber company-owned fac-
ory outlets and the big oil comnanv-owMed super-service
stations would turn retail tire bus;npss o-er tr these "little
allows" during the war, retaining for themselves only the
wholesaling function. We have no suner-service stations in
'ort St. Joe, but this ndrldd business would aid greatly a

Just a few weeks ago work was begun on another

is being done to serve the war effort.
At the present time electric power is being

When the war is won, and victory is ours and
we return to civilian life-we'll have a story to tell-
a story far surpassing any present dreams. But until
then we'll just go on serving and working toward

TION renders a live fold service. It pays substantial taxes, gives em-
ployment to thousands of people, helps support the railroads and
other business of the State of Florida, supplies a basic necessity of
life and furnishes an' outlet for productive investment of the savings
of the thrifty. The value and extent of such services can be appreciated
only when the volume is known. Below is shown the extent of our
contribution during the year ended June 30, 1942 to the people, the
State and the Nation.
United States Sugar-Corporation, in addition to making available to
our fellow Americans 86,743 tons of sugar, a woefully short national
commodity, provided 4,731,878 gallons of molasses, national shortages
of which necessitated the institution of priorities and restrictions. We
also made available the only supply source for the essential oil of
lemon grass and provided feed for live stock, which provision relieved
to some extent the heavily burdened transportation facilities of the
In doing these things, m addition to providing extensive facilities, it
was necessary to incur heavy obligations, which are summarized as
Excise taxes, deducted in settlements for sugar
and paid directly to the National Treasury
Sin the sum of $ 870,484
SProvision for income and excess profits taxes on
the year's business amounted to 900,000
;Other taxes paid to Federal, State, County and
locall governments aggregated 528,057
So that our total tax bill was $2,298,541
Wages and salaries paid, aggregated 2,835,616
Freight created for the railroads, and in turn
expended by them for taxes, wages and
materials amounted to 1,030,295
rExpenditures for merchandise, materials, supplies,
etc., [most of which were purchased within
the State], including substantial amounts paid
to neighboring farmers, aggregated 2,570.553
The sum of the foregoing is $8,735,005
To provide the foregoing benefits to the people, the State and'the
Nation, it was necessary to provide suitable facilities which required
'substantial investments in the Everglades on the part of our stock-
holders, many of whom are also employees, and as compensation for
'the risk involved in making available the assets, facilities and credit
Sto provide such benefits to the people, the State and the Nation and
for return on their investment, the stockholders were paid $629,850.

WHILE OUR HOMES STILL STAND
War with all its horrors, its ever-increas-
.ing demand for personal sacrifice, its restric-
tion of individual rights. has cast a shadow
.over our country. No section, town, village,
'city or hamlet can escape its demands, cle-
mands that affect the lives of all of us. Yet.
we here in America have not felt the full po-
tency of total war, at least many of our in-
.land towns and cities will be secure from the
-scourge of the enemy. But this does not mean:
that we can ever allow ourselves to deviate
one 'iota from -the avowed purpose of total vic-
tory. To achieve this, we must work, sacri-
fice, and bend every effort individually and
collectively to contribute our efforts where
they are vitally needed to win the war.
in every home in Port St. Joe, without ex-
,ception, there are things that have long out-
lived their usefulness. True, they may be
wrapped in memories-delightful mementos
of children at play. John's first tricycle .
Mary's doll carriage the skates that Bill
learned oi. ... These are only things .
things that have passed their utilitarian
value, that we are asked to give as scrap.
They aren't.scrap to us they mean some-
thing in our lives.
But our homes are still standing here. Over
there they have a different kind of, scrap ... .
they have the steel beams that used to sup-
port the steeple of their church the iron
railings that little hands used to grasp to help
them up the stairs. Yes-they have much
'more scrap of that kind than we but let
us give the scrap IN our homes-and not the
scrap OF our homes.
On the first day of September, the great-
est war the world has ever known entered its .
Jfourthr year. Those three years have wit-
nessed a series of almost uninterrupted tri-
numphs for 'Hitler and his satellites. The time-
table of conquest makes almost incredible
reading-Poland fell in 28 days, Denmark in
one day, Norway in two months, Belgium in
18 days, France in 43 days. Of all the nations
Hitler has invaded, Russia alone remains. It
is very likely that historians of the future
will write that Russia was the savior of the
'free world. Whatever happens, the magnifi-
cent resistance of the Red army will mark
one of the brightest and bravest pages in the
long and sanguinary history of combat.
We suggest that congress pass a bill pro-
viding that when this war is over, all tax-
payers be awarded a medal for valor. But,

SHOP AND MAIL EARLY
Christmas may seem far away, these warm
September days, but for persons with friends
or relatives in the armed forces overseas, it
is a season that demands inmediate consid-
eration-that is, if they wint these absent
.ones to receive at the appropriate time the
gifts they plan to give then.
The -army postal service frankly admits
that it will not be able to handle Christmas
business unless the public c(-operates. There.-
fore, to this end, its chiefs are offering the
public the following suggestions:
1. Begin buying overseas Christmas pres-
2. Wrap them in shoetox-size packages
not exceeding five pounds. Ihis will simplify
handling. If necessary, send several packages,
but keep them under five rounds.
3. Try to get the packages in the mail by
October 1, and under no circumstances later
than November 1, otherwise the army cannot
ensure delivery by Christmas, since there
aren't enough ships and nail planes to ac-
commodate a last-minute mushE
4. Don't bother to pti special delivery
stamps on overseas parcel. This will cost
you more money, but will not insure quicker

number of our business men like Otto Anderson, W. C.
Roche and others, who practically have their backs to the
wall due to restrictions on gasoline, tires and cars.
It is important to point out that this measure woula
hurt nobody. In the first place, these big companies are
prospering through war'aontract work, and don't need the
comparatively, small amount of business represented by tire
sales. But beyond that, it. is a fact that both the oil com-
panies and the rubber companies do most of their business
through independent dealers-so it would mean, for them,
imply concentrating on wholesaling, so their own indepen-
..dent dealers could exist. Doesn't that seem fair?
' Tire manufacturers and -retreaders have demonstrated
that a maximum of 3,500 tons of crude rubber is all that is
required for the retreading of 30,000,000 "tires per year of
the 'type of retread proposed. This is far less than that
which has now monthly been allocated from the crude rub-
ber stock pile by government officials for the manufactur-
Sng of camelback for civilian passenger tire use since Pearl
The Star urges you to support these tire conservation
'bills by writing to Senators Pepper and Andrews and Con-.
gressman Sikes, urging their passage. It will mean that a
number of small business men, not only in Port St. Joe,
but throughout' the nation, will be given a new lease on
life, and it will mean tha-t necessary transportation in many
other vital cases will be available for the duration.

a place to plant a garden. "Since
