THEY ALSO SERVE--
In talking casually with various members
of the civilian defense setup here in Port St.
Joe,. the editor finds that a large number'of
them are losing interest in the defense coun-
cil or developing.an apathetic attitude toward
the various activities. What they should re-
.alize.is that the hardest job confronting them
after the time they have put in learning. first
aid, fire-fighting, bomb defense and the other
-courses 'in civilian defense, is waiting.
-The whole idea and concept behind civilian
defense is to have this trained group ready
as long as there is a possibility of a bombing
-taking place any time in the .future.
SThese men and women who must stand by
during the dull and tedious days of waiting
for something which we. hope-will never oc-
cur, should realize with satisfaction that
"they also serve who only stand and wait."
SHARE THE -SENATORS
-Referring to an editorial that appeared in
. The Star several weeks ago, the Punta Gorda
*Herald has this to say:
"The folks up Port St. Joe way don't agree
with us that the two proposed new senator-
ial districts are unnecessary and would mean
an unjustified additional expense to the tax-
payers,, Gulf county wants one of those new
senators and stands to get him unless the
people defeat the constitutional amendment
providing for them, at the polls in November.
"Now Gulf or any other growing county
can't be blamed for wanting more adequate
representation in the legislature. What we
need, however, is a reapportionment of sena-
torial representation-not two new ones.
Perhaps Gulf county could prevail upon an-
other West Florida district to give up its sen-
ator, to whom it hasn't any right anyway by
reason of population. Why not get Hamilton
county .to turn over its senator. 'Twould ac-
complish the same results and cost no one
Yes, Hamilton county could be asked to
give up its senator, but it probably would
lead to bloodshed.
GAS RATIONING TO SAVE RUBBER
National rationing of gasoline is not pro-
posed because there is a shortage. To the
contrary, there is an abundance of gasoline
of -all ordinary grades, and int the producing
areas the oil companies are hard-put for stor-
age facilities. Gasoline rationing is to be im-
posed, instead, to save rubber-and to save
rail and water transportation facilities for
At present, gasoline rationing applies to 17
eastern states. According to Leon Hender-
son, it will be extended to the balance of tht
country on precisely the same basis. That
means that motorists of Gulf county will be
entitled to four gallons weekly-enough 'to
carry him about 70 miles. Supplemental al-
lowances will be given to "essential" drivers.
Practically all pleasure driving,' which in this
section is mainly for \the purpose of going
fishing, will be eliminated for the duration.
Drastic restrictions on the use of automo-
biles will work a veritable revolution in this
nation. Within the next year, without rub-
ber, transportation problems will becoine
acute. Tires are really beginning to wear out
in volume now, and soon we will see car af-
ter car go into dead storage for lack of rub-
ber. This not only will hit the workers who
drive to and from work, but it will hit farm
production in a critical manner, and we de-
pend almost entirely on the motor car for
short-haul transport. So the lack of rubber,
not gasoline, remains our number one domes-
Ever since World War, I this editor has
advocated compulsory military training for
the young men, of our nation. The national
