The Star herewith presents an
important letter written 'to the
newspapers of the city by George
"L. 9iowden, district civil director
of the Aircraft Warning .Service,
from data on the Port St. Joe ob-
-servation post furnished by Chief
-Observer W. S. Smith. We quote:
"'W. S. Smith, Editor The Star:
"The St. Joe aircraft spotting
tower has now been completed for
lover three months. The splendid
co-operation of the various mer-
chants, individuals, clubs and cor-
porations which donated material,
time or money to construct the
tower has received' recognition and
commendation from army officers
of the First Fighter Command.
The tower was pronounced the
"best in this section of the state.
"We have .been advised 'by head-
quarters that special attention is
.given to reports originating at the
St. Joe tower. There must be some
cause for this special attention,
and one does not have to look far
to find the reason.
"Considering the above, it his
been very disappointing to those
of us wiho see.,what t lier com-
-munities are doifig, that the St. Joe
post has not received the co-oper-
ation from volutneers that its im-
portance rightly deserves. Up un-

'Standing Room Only' Sign Hung
Out At Pilot Club Event
Wednesday Night

The much-heralded "Amateur
Contest" sponsored by the. Port
St. Joe Pilot club at the Port -the-
ater -Wednesday night drew one of
the largest crowds in the history
of the theater, and Manager Ben
Rivers was forced to regretfully
hang out the "Standing Room

receiving a two weeks' pass to the
Port theater. Thle judges, who
were three members of the Signal
Corps stationed in this vicinity,
accorded first place to Mrs. Max
Kilbourne for her rendition at the
piano of one of her own composi-
tions, but ruled her out of the
amateur class. All contestants put
on fine performances, but space
forbids listing each and every one.
Hit of the evening was Gordon
Thomas, depicting a knight of the
road as.a..spe:ia! .rao pu'- nr by

County Would Get

Much Cash Under

New Amendment

Would No Longer Be Necessary tO
Levy Taxes for Paying Old
Road and Bridge Debts

Although it does not mean much
in debt liquidation, Gulf county
having but $36,440 in road and
bridge bonds issued prior to July,
1931, this county will collect $3,-
055,067 cash for new and recon-
structed, highways from the pro-
posed gas tax amendment which
comes up for ratification by the
people at next Tuesday's general
election. However, the taxpayers
can forget about that $36,440
which is taken over by the state.
This is according to. figures re-
leased 'by the State Association of
County Commissioners in Talla-
hassee this week. They are based
on tabulations prepared by the au-
diting department and the di-
vision of research and records of
the state road department.
For the entire state the amend-
ment will liquidate $171,S95,054
worth of high interest bearing
road and bridge bonds and provide
more than $400,000,000 additional
over the 50-year period for perfec-
tion of the statedand coJuty high-
way systems without "additional
0ost to taxpayers.

troller) for" payment from two

Ohr Country Right or Wrong

Price fixing may sound simple to the man
in the street, but it's a monumental headache
to our retail merchants. Ask any merchant
in Port St. Joe today.
Never before have the people and the in-
dustries of America faced the necessity of-
donning a regulatory straitjacket such as is
embodied in the deluge of leaflets and pamph-
lets being sent to storekeepers from Maine
to California-and even editors of country
weeklies like The Star have a set of rules and
regulations to follow. Everything from gum
to tractors is being "fixed" or "frozen." The
price of each item on a retailer's shelves
must b'e carefully set according to formula.
The merchants of Port St. Joe, as well as
elsewhere, are striving valiantly to comply
with the complicated ceiling decrees issued
from Washington. A great many of them
have 'unknowingly become lawbreakers be-
cause they have found it impossible to quickly
understand the technical rules, and we be-
live that in this instance the old saying that
ignorance is no excuse should not be applied.
Ignorance, if you care to call it that, is a very
definite excuse.
And if the administrating officials are wise
they will not begin our new authoritarian era
by fining or throwing any erring storekeepers
into the hoosgow until they have determined
his intent. After all, our main job is to win
the war, not persecute good American citizens.

The recent, Washington announcement
which said that it is now hoped that enough
rubber can be provided to keep all civilian
cars going, is extermely encouraging. For
the first time, the people have been given
something beside "official" rumors and con-
flicting statements. And for the first time, it
looks as if the government is going to at-
tempt to' solve the rubber problem with speed
and efficiency.
This country's cars must be kept going.
America can't be compared to other nations,
where the motor car was a luxury enjoyed
only by the rich. We have literally built our
social and industrial life on the automobile.
If, because of lack of rubber, any substantial
.part of our 27,000,000 cars were taken out of
circulation, the resulting slow-down would
have a catastrophic effect on the war effort.,
The rubber program must go ahead-and
go at forced-speed.

Three major legislative proposals, lower-
ing the draft age, abolishing state poll taxes
in federal elections, and mobilizing the na-
tion's manpower in an all-out war effort, have
been placed on the "don't-open-until-after-
election" shelf by congress. Seems that our
legislators in Washington don't realize that
there's a war on-it's politics as usual with

Some three weeks ago the editor queried:
"If anyone would be so kind, we'd like infor-
mation on just what is a 'zoot suit.' Yester-
day, one of our readers wrote us as follows:
"Dear Editor Bill-If you must know just
what is a 'zoot suit,' it consists of a pair of
trousers reaching almost to the armpits, bal-
looning to about 32 inches at the knee and
tapering in a most spectacular manner to a
cuff barely large enough to insert the foot.
In action, the wearer gives the effect of two
up-ended baby blimps.
"That takes care of the lower portion, and
now we come to the coat-which is really
something! It gets off-to a flying start with
three to six inches of padding in the shoul-
ders, then drips sloppily almost to the knee.
"To complete the suit and add a touch of
ghastliness to the enesmble, the hat is broad-
brimmed with a flat top, spaniel-eared sus-
penders hold up the trousers, a narrow string
tie encircles the neck, the coat is adorned
with pearl buttons about the size of a silver
dollar, and the trouser cuffs are so tight that
they have to be zippered. Just why they call
them 'zoot suits' is beyond me.
"Trusting that this answers fully your re-
cent query, I am, yours truly-A Friend."
The description gives us the creeps just to
think of a human being, outfitted in such a
gorgonean ensemble. It might be a good idea
to dress our soldiers in such appalling uni-
forms undoubtedly it would startle the
enemy to such an extent that they would be
frozen in their tracks and be a pushover for
our boys.

A top sergeant at Camp Blanding has
spoken his mind on a very important matter,
and he spoke for public consumption.
He is tired of hearing civilians mention sol-
diers as "boys," and he wishes the public
would stop applying such a label to men.
.The sergeant says he knows full well that
most civilians who refer to soldiers as "boys"
are merely being affectionate, but he says fur-
ther that he and all other soldiers would be
much obliged if the public figured out some
other way of indicating affection.
The sergeant maintains that a male being
old enough to go through rigorous training
and then go off to war and fight is far from
being a boy.
Take the protesting Sgt. Hugh B. Strick-
land, for instance. He has been in the army
13 years. He has served in the Philippines,
in Panama and at other posts, and we betcha
he knows how to bark orders to a group of
men. Well, it would sound pretty foolish to
call a man like Sergeant Strickland a boy.
Fact is, you'd better not let him hear you
call him a boy.
"I've been in the army a long time, and
I've known a lot of soldiers, and it's just like,
waving a red flag in front of a bull to call
one of us a boy," says the sergeant.
Of course, if a girl wants to call a: sergeant
"my darling soldier boy" and stuff like that,
when they're holding hands in the moonlight
on the shore of Lake Morton, that's their,
business. We. believe that even Sergeant
.Strickland might purr to such talk.
What he's objecting to is public use of
the label "boys," and we think he's exactly
right.-Lakeland Ledger.

The telephone is a wonderful instrument,
and we take our hlat off to Alexander Gra-
ham Bell for inventing it (or was it Don
Ameche?), but-at times it becomes an instru-
ment of the devil-particularly when Ye Ed
is composing an editorial and the telephone
rings, interrupting his train of thought.

The army's current proposition offering 18
and 19-year-old youths their choice of service
in any one of 13 branches is. strictly an all-.
American proposition. Don't think for a min-
ute all those boys now fighting for the axis
had their preference.

doubled in the last eight years, !weeks, one of the jolts probably

rising from $272 in 1933 to the
e- ..d high of $544, in 1941, ac-
cording to data released by the
Florida State Chamber of Com-
:n:rce. Increased war production
is expected to raise it above $600
for 1942.
Labor has more than held its
own in the swelling flood of for-
tune. Higher wage rates combined
with generally improved business
conditions have jumped total wage
a:d salary income 150 per cent,
:rcm $255,000,000 in 1933 to $638,-
103,000 in 1941. Labor's proportion-
c:e share of the state income in-
creased in the same period from
5S.7 per cent to 60.4 per cent. The
average wage and salary payment
to employes in non-agricultural es-
tablishments is estimated to have
,isen to a new high of $1,436 In
.941, compared with $1,323 in 1938.
Greatest increase has been in
t ,e share of government employes,
..hich rose from 8.4 per cent in
1929 to 12.4 per cent in 1941 when
government wages and, salaries
mounted to $130,200,000.
Analysis of income, estimates
u:'nce 1929 by industrial divisions
and including profits and wages,
.show that the proportionate shari'
produced by agriculture reached a
high in 1930 of 12.3 per cent and
declined fairly steadily to 1940
when it was responsible for only
7.7 per cent, a total of $70,200,000
of net-income. It started an up-
ward, trend again in 1941 with a
'et income of $88,000,000, or 8.3
per cent of the state total, and
vill undoubtedly show a further
increase in 1942.
,Manufacturing industries, on the
other hand, reached their propor-

state's total. Since that time they
have been averaging about 8 peri

1941 as compared with $101,100,000

in volume of tourist business. Sig-
nificantly, the 1940 income at-

while lower in dollars than for

with 27.2 per cent for 1941.
