Our Country' Right or Wrong
TIME TO HELP
With appointment this week of the editor
of The Star as community service member of
the Gulf county war price and rationing board
Ye Ed went around and talked casually with
a number of merchants, inquiring particu-
larly as to how they were making out in se-
curing merchandise and what they thought of
the new point system of rationing certain
varieties of foods and meats.
Well, we came to the conclusion that if
Port St. Joe is a cross-section of the nation
as a whole, retailers have never before faced
such problems as they do today. Securing
goods, from what we learned, requires expert
knowledge, foresight and an understanding ot
laws and regulations heretofore unheard of in
As regards the matter of price ceilings, all
merchants contacted seemed to be "getting
by" with some sort of system, but whether
or not they-were complying exactly with gov-
ernment regulations none of them were sure,
ffot .uninm a grocery or merchandise store
has become' a complicated problem. And fail-
ure to comply with all rules carries a penalty
of $10,000 fine or 10 years in jail, or both.
And here's a request that the merchants of
Port St. Joe make to all consumers: Between
now and the time full war rationing takes et-
fect, probably late next month or by March
1, don't hoard. They ask this because they
are co-operating with the government to the
utmost to avoid disruption of consumer sup-
plies. They can't sell something they haven't
got, and that would be the case if a lot ot
people try to stock up on various items. Lend-
lease and military demands have made deep
inroads on supplies of all kinds, and it is up
to us consumers to co-operate in dividing
Don't hoard-its' just the same as holding
up your neighbor with a gun, because if you
take more than your share, he'll get none.
WHOM WE SERVE
Any who feel the urge to rush to the gro-
cery store for a swine's share of the canned
goods there will be interested in knowing
whose advice they are following.
"Stock up on all canned goods you can lay
your hands on," advised the Berlin radio re-
cently, speaking in excellent English to un
Americans. "Stock up in larder and cellar be-
fore it is too late."
Thereby, of course, being of help to Hitler.
The Low Down
Editor Bill, The Star:
You won't read much 'except
about what this country needs.
I been researchin' and you know,
where there's one thing we need,
we already have two things, we
"Name a couple," says Henry,
my next-door neighbor (he only
lives seven miles down river.)
THERE'S A .DIFFERENCE
Captain Eddie .Rickenbacker, after return-
ing from his gruelling experience in the South
Seas and his inspection of fighting fronts, is
the only -man who,has said what the Ameri-
can people needed to hear in connection with
production problems. In the newspapers and
in the news reels he said that if the soldiers
could be transferred from the hell-holes they
occupy on the battlefronts, to our factories,
and if the employes in the factories could be
transferred to the battlefronts, production in
this country would double in 30 days.
By the tone of his voice and his e'xpres-
sion, you could see that he was disgustec
with the Pollyanna talk about workers at
home being classed as filling "battle stations.'
He emphasized that nothing the people in
this country can do will in any measure equal
what the men on the battle lines are doing.
They don't get overtime pay, and they work
day and night if necessary.
We agree with Captain Rickenbacker. Just
because some of us wear "tin hats" at home,
we don't want to become swelled up with the
idea that we are filling "battle stations"-
we are not. Battle stations (and your editor
knows from past experience) are where, the
bullets fly and men are dying; where men
work as long as there is something to do;
where orders are obeyed; where overtime
pay and profits are not an issue-and where
the "perpetuation of liberty and freedom for
the individual are the guiding stars.
WAR TAKES VIRGIN TIMBER
War requires many sacrifices and the ma-
jority of people make them without protest.
Still it is sad to see one of the last tracts oi
virgin pine in Florida falling under the ax to
feed the machines of war.
Loggers have invaded St. Vincent's Island,
game and fish paradise, located near Ap-
alachicola, on which stands 40,000,000 feet of
virgin forest. The trees, unlike most of the
other virgin stands in Florida, have neveo
been tapped. Deer, wild animals, wild turkey
and birds, so taine they have no fear of ma:-.
abound. The island is privately owned by the
estate of the late Dr. R. V. Pierce, who
stocked it with game from all parts of the
They made it their home and multiplied
tremenodusly. But war has made it necessary
to take that home from them. A lumber com-
pany has a contract to cut half the timber on
the land. The contract permits unrestricted
timbering, but the company has volunteered
to co-operate with the Florida Forest and
Park Service to cut with an eye to conser-

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-
lual 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 1esires and activity of Nature's most
_-onfderful creation-a normal, fully-de-

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.
If you are childless due to functional
weakness and lack normal vigor-if you
wish to eliminate one of the great causes
of unhappy marriages, by all means try
