OUR MOST EXPENSIVE CONGRESS
Now that the 78th congress is underway,
we can look back at the 77th congress which,
like Longfellow's Arabs, folded its tent and
silently stole away, leaving behind it the
largest public debt and the most sweeping
laws that have qver been known to demo-
Legislation of the 77th congress pivoted
mainly around the participation of this nation
in the war, involved taxation and appropria-
tions, included the declarations of war on
Bulgaria, Hungary and Rumania and widened
further the president's emergency and war
The total direct appropriations by both the
first and second sessions of the congress In
round figures amounted to $188,686,000,000
(including amounts to be repaid by. the post-
office department and 'District of Columbia
government), plus contract authorizations ot
$20,857,000,000, and brought the financial
commitments of the congress to $209,543,-
000,000,- according to a compilation just made
by the budget bureau.
Legislation affecting agriculture,' business,
foreign relations, housing, labor, shipping,
money, neutrality, price control, prosecution
of the war, public debt, the railroads, taxa-
tion, veterans, war. damage and war powers
was approved during the session.
Already we are beginning to face the teeth
of many of these war emergency laws which
are biting into our food, our incomes, the
prices we pay, the distances we ride in our
cars, and the liberties we have fought to
We are not complaining. These things are
necessary in war times. But we urge every-
one to renew their interest in our represen-
tation in congress and follow closely the op-
eratioii of these emergency laws that have
been enacted, so that .these mesaures may
rule over our lives during this emergency only
and not remain to plague us after their u3e-
fulness has passed.
Keep smiling-and buy War Bonds!
TO THE EDITOR
-The following copy of a letter
was received from U. S. iSenator
Charles 0. Andrews this week and
is in reference to an editorial pub-
lished several weeks ago in The
Washington D. C.
Hon. Charles '0. Andrews
United iStates Senate.
Dear Senator Andrews-It is a
pleasure to acknowledge receipt
of your letter 'of December 28 ana
the enclosed .editorial from the
Port St. Joe Star, suggesting the
naming of the airfield at Apaalchi-
cola, Fla., in honor of the late
Captain Joe Henry Gray.
I. greatly appreciate your en-
dorsement of this suggestion and
have placed it in the hands of ap-
propriate military authorities for
consideration when the installation
is named. Unfortunately I cannot
THE VICTORY TAX
A lot of people hold the belief that the
Victory Tax which has just gone into effect
is a discriminatory levy against those work-
ing for salaries or wages-in fact your ed-
itor held that opinion until he studied the
bill closely.. /
The payroll deduction is applied to those
receiving their stipends at regular intervals
because that is the most practical manner for
the government to get the money and for the
people to pay it. But the tax will be taken
from all others earning more than $624 a
year. Physicians, dentists, lawyers, architects,
insurance men, publishers of weekly newspa.,
pers, other professional men and storekeep-
ers and others whose earnings are irregular
must pay their Victory Tax in 1944, filing a
special blank with their regular income tax
at that time.
So you wage-earners who have been ex-
pressing your opinion on the matter from
mild expostulation to apoplectic rage can
calm down. After all, you pay it weekly, bi-
monthly or monthly and it. doesn't hurt so
bad in those small driblets, while we business
men will have to pay it all in one chunk.'
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Rationing will soon be put into effect inu
Port St. Joe and we the suggesting the fol-
lowing things our readers can do to help the
Use your ration book correctly. Trying to
beat the ration is trying to cheat your neigh-
bors and your nation.
Buy no more than your actually need, when
you need it. It is much better to keep your
coupons as long as possible by planning your
needs and looking ahead a little.
If you needless of a commodity than you
are entitled to, don't stock up on it just "be-
cause you have the rationing coupons.
Learn to make scarce goods go further and
last longer (a number of manufacturers are
publishing advertisements i'nd booklets that'
show you how).
Arms production .records set by American
manufacturers in the past year are: 49,000
planes, 32,000 tanks, 17,000 anti-aircraft gun-
and 8,000,000 tons of merchant ships. These
figures are spectacular. They prove that In-
itiative inspired by freedom packs a punch!
Congratulations to the Punta Gorda Her-
ald on its fiftieth anniversary. The pub-
lishers should be proud of 50 years of the
kind of service that only a newspaper can
render a community.

* It looks like a carnival concession
or an inventor's nightmare.

every one of us is having our sense of
balance tested by war. It's a test

well-balanced management under public
regulation-the system that made America great.
