VOLUME VI PORT ST. JOE, GULF COUNTY, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, JANUARY 22, 1943 NUMBER 16
It Takes Both, War Bonds and Taxes, to
Win -Victory Tax Special Direct Levy
Asked to Help Meet Heavy War Costs
WASHINGTON, D. C.-Approximately 50,000,000 Ameri-
can workers began to make an added contribution to the
War cost this month in the form of a 5% Victory tax.
For many millions of Americans the Victory tax and the
1943 income tax are the first direct levies to be made by the
Government to meet the staggering War costs. And it will
take both .. taxes and War Bonds to provide the sup-
plies and materials to win the War and the peace afterwards.

leaving 73.5 billion dollars of dis-
posable income. During 1943 total
income payments are expected to
rise to 125 billion dollars and total
personal taxes under existing reve-
nue legislation will be 15 billion dol-
lars-leaving 110 billion dollars of
income at our disposal as against
only 73.5 billion dollars in 1940.
In 1943 Mr. Average American will

load than his Canadian or English
brothers-in-arms. In Great Britain
total national and local taxes paid
by individuals at present amount to
31 percent of the national income. I
In Canada, total individual taxes
amount to 25 percent of the national
income. In the United States, total
personal taxes, Federal,-state and.
local, will amount in 1943 to 18 per-
cent of national income. Our Eng- i
lish allies invest an additional 10
percent of national income in War
savings. Our Canadian allies invest
an additional 11 percent of national
income in War savings. We Ameri-
cans, to match the record of our Ca-
nadian neighbors, would have to in-
vest this year 20 percent of our pa-
tional income in War savings. To
match the English record we would
have to invest 23 percent of national
income in War savings.
Gulf County Joins
"March of Dimes" To Get Under

Accentuated ,by wartime's ever-
present threat of epidemic di1s-
ease, the 1943 fight against infan-
tile paralysis got under way in Gulf
county, last Friday, under tho
leadership of J. E. Bounds of this
city, and ends with the Presi-

tennial auditorium the night of
Saturday, January 30.
One of the main features of the

We have considered it a priv-

it has cost us a considerable
piece of change to have the cuts
made of those we have published
to date, and we have had to beg

have-it seems that most of
them are apathetic to the idea'
of seeing the picture of their

Our Country Right or Wrong
WHAT MIGHT BE BIG NEWS
There are circumstances in which saving
the life of a mere rat might crowd the wai
news off the front pages of America's news-
papers. For this, too, would be victory news
-news of victory over the Great Crippler, the
children's disease-infantile paralysis.
In this grim struggle the courageous, per-
sistent soldiers of the laboratory, flying
blind, failing and trying again in a war where
there never has been an armistice, much less
a victory, are the main figures.
If a drug could be found that would cure a
rat suffering from infantile paralysis, that
might be just the drug to cure human victims
of this powerful enemy on the home front.,
From time to time, as' is the case in any
war, there have been rumors of fantastic suc-
cess. None ever stood up to the supreme tests
of cause and cure. And the fight has not been
without its grim humor. A man wrote in to
say that he would find a cure for polio it
somebody would offer a prize. Another wrote
to scoff that infantile paralysis was nothing
i#iore than a bad case of charley-horse,
The fight goes on, propelled by the Na-
tional Foundation for Infantile Paralysis and
by the dollars and dimes of a fighting people
who celebrate the birthday of the president
by dancing so that others may walk, .
WE'RE ALL WATCHDOGS NOW
Beginning the first of January with the
Victory Tax, and March 15 with income taxes,
.we're all going to get over the idea that taxes
are something that just "the other guy" has
This will be one of the best things that
ever happened to- the country. Millions of citi-
zens who never took an interest in govern-
ment before, will begin to watch the financial
policies of government to see that public
money is not wasted, and our congressmen
and senators will find a big increase in their
mail made by "the folks at home."
Keep smiling-and buy War Bonds!
NO SUBSTITUTE FOR FREEDOM
As free American citizens we have found
we can meet the test of war. We have the
ability to get things done. We have courage
and daring. Our men have shown in stark
heroism that on the military front we are
not soft. We can fight with the tricks our
forefathers learned from the Indians, and we
can fight with machines. Guadalcanal and
North Africa have proven that. In brief, we
can win the war.
But there is more than the military front.
There is the home front. And here there is
some evidence of softness, of confusion of
ideals. Group bickering has put the attain-
ment of personal comfort and security ahead
of the national welfare. We should remember
Eddie Rickenbacker's words that all we can
do here at home, will never be equal to what
the fighting men at the front are 'doing.
In many quarters a desire to eliminate hu-
man want at one fell swoop has become an
obsession. An agency of government has
even prepared a new bill of rights, the basic
tenet of which is economic security. This
new bill is proposed as a supplement to the
old bill defining our liberties at the time the
United States Constitution was adopted. It
puts security on a par with freedom, on the
theory that the American people will aban-
don freedom if they are not guaranteed three
square meals a 'day. It implies that the Amer-
ican people, bitter from the recent depression
and fearful of post-war uncertainty, do not
propose td go hungry; that if they cannot
have their freedom with full bellys, they will
do without freedom.
If such is true, we have drifted far from
the ideals the Pilgrims carried ashore at Ply-
mouth Rock. Even as our men on the battle-
fields are now dying, the Pilgrims died and
suffered hardship for just one reason-to pre-
serve a spot on this globe where the indi-
vidual could be free. And they got that free-
dom. They got it because they were tough.
Their ideals came first, their bellys second.
Our men are winning battles now because
they are tough. They are thinking of *free-
We on the home front must do a lot of
clear thinking. We must now be .hardened by
a determination that above all else we must
save the right of tlfe individual to be free.
We must realize now and in the peace to
come, that individual freedom is more import-
ant than individual comfort. Bitter experi-
ence has demonstrated that without freedom
there can be neither comfort nor security.
We must reaffirm our belief in our con-

DO YOU WANT A BABY?
New Vitamin Combination Brings Hope
to Childless Homes
Nothing equals a baby to bring com-
plete unity and happiness into the home
and tie husband and wife together in a
stronger bond of enduring love and mu-
tual interest. Divorce is rare in the homes:
of couples that have children.
Unhappy wives, childless due to relieve-
able functional weakness may now enjoy
the desires and activity of Nature's most
wonderful creation-a normal, fully-de.
veloped, vigorous woman. A sensational
new vitamin treatment specifically for
women may be just the thing needed by
the childless wife and quickly bring the
happiness of a baby in the home. It is,
of course, absolutely harmless.
