" Observers To

r Get Arm Bands

e First Consignment -Is Now Being
Awarded To Those With
25 Hours or More

At long last, after many prom-
ises by Chief 'Oibserver W. S.
Smith (who in turn 'had been given
s promises, tbut no bands, by 'the
- A. W. S.) the coveted' arm bands
for observers serving on the Port
St. Joe A. W. S. tower have ar-
rived and are now ready for dis-
tribution to' those loyal airplane
spotters who have chalked up 25
hours or more on watch.
The arm bands are beautiful to
behold, and will be worn proudly
by those who have earned them;
The insignia is made up of two
golden wings, each 3% inches in
length, on each side of a white,
circle bearing 'the words "U. S.
Army Air Force-A. W. ,S."
The first band went 'to Mrs. W.
S. Smith, who has a total of 246
hours to her credit; next in line is
J. 0. Baggett, with 104 hours.
Others eligible for bands are M.
P. Tomlinson, W. W. Barrier, Mrs.
W. M. Howell, Miss Dorothy An-
derson, Mrs. H. I. Woodin, Miss
Margaret Belin and W. A. Biggart.
Mr. Biggart is a late comer to the
ranks of observers, but he has
been serving two shifts, from 2 to
6 Saturday mornings, and so has
more than earned his wings.
The St. Joe post has been al-
lotted 'but 20 arm bands at this
time, and somac who will shortly
have made their 25 hours may
have 'to wait for their wings, but
the chief observer has been as-
sured that more bands will be
forthcoming in the near future.

Our Country Right or Wrong

PASS THE GAS TAX AMENDMENT
We doubt that many of our readers have
waded through all that fine print in the "No-
tice of Election" that has been appearing in
The Star for a number of weeks past, and
so are probably unacquainted with the vari-
ous amendments to be voted on next month.
One of the most important of these amend-
mnents is the gas tax amendment, which will
appear on the ballot as No. 1. This is not a
two or four-year decision on the part of the
voters, but affects the question of taxation
and finance in Florida for a period of 50 years.
The question it presents is so grave and go
far-reaching that every qualified voter read-
ing this should study its provisions as set
forth on the opposite page and be prepared
to vote intelligently.
In a sincere effort to solve the state's vex-
ing financial problem, Governor Holland and
your legislature have devised this plan to re-
lieve the tax burden, and at. the same time
provide a means of paying our indebtedness*
in the form of bond obligations for roads and
bridges. They have done their work, and done
it well. Now it is up to you as the sovereign
voter to assume your sacred duty as the citi-
zen of a democracy and, through the ballot,
make known yur wishes.
Under the proposed plan, Floridians are


offered an 'opportunity to save a substantial
amount in their property tax, as its adoption
will make it unnecessary to levy ad valorem
taxes to pay the principal and interest of
county road bonds or special district road and
bridge bonds.
It provides that two cents of the present
gas tax be set aside each year for the next
50 years for the payment of road and bridge
bonds, both principal and interest. At pres-
ent, three cents is'allocated for this purpose,
but since the amount so pledged may be
changed, increased or decreased by each legis-
lature, it represents an unsatisfactory and
unstable condition, whereas if such payments
are stabilized and the entire indebtedness
definitely provided for on the two-cent basis
for a 50-year period, both taxpayers and bond-
holders will benefit, while the state's finan-
cial structure will be materially strengthened.
'Every thinking taxpayer must surely rce
alize that the burden of federal taxation must
of necessity become increasingly heavy,
therefore anything that will tend to relieve
local taxation during this trying period is of
the utmost importance.


Coffey county people are playing a new
game. They call it "Who?" The game starts
when somebody tells a bit of gossip about
anything concerning the war program or ac-
tivities, and another asks the question: "Who
said so?" This starts the game. The one who
asked "Who" then goes to the person named
and asks "Who?" Then that pe.so'n in turn
is asked "Who?" Those playing the game
say it is a lot of fun. Up to now, all reporting
say they have been unable to find any foun-
dation for any story investigated. It's a great
game. Why not try it?-Burlington (Kan.)
Republican.
