Suspension of Horse Racing
Results In $3,500,000 Loss;
Many New Sources of In-
come Are Being Discussed.
By the, end of this month all of
us should know about what taxes,
we will have to pay during fie
next two years to finance the
functions of our state government.
The legislature which convenes
next Tuesday probably won't let
many days go by without giving
indications of revenue sources
likely to be tapped to offset a
$3,500,000 loss that resulted from
suspension of horse racing.
Governor Holland states that
much of that will have to be re-
placed, because it was used for old
age pensions and to help counties
with local government. He sayb
the money should come from new
revenue sources and not from any
changes upward in present tax
levies, but he hasn't announced
what recommendations he will

Our Country 7 Right or Wrong
WHAT WILL THEY THINK OF US?
To Port St. Joe now come welcome visitors
from the army camps at Tyndall Field, Carra-
belle and Apalachicola, not to mention our
own boys furloughed home from the training
camps-often for their final visit before de-
parting for service on distant battlefields.
The number of such visitors will increase
as the months move on. They give us a
chance to,see, what they, after their months
of services, are like. Our verdict has long been
clear. They come back straight and strong,
proving the diligence of their training for the
work in hand. Our men home on furlough
give good account of themselves.
But what do these visitors to the home
front tell their comrades when they return
to the fighting ranks? There is something
that might give us cause for worry. They re-
port to us that the work of training and fight-
ing goes on well. The men in the Army, Navy
and Marine Corps are giving all they have.
Theirs is the hard and dangerous task. That
task is being done-well done. Will they be
able to report to their comrades as favorably
of us who form the home front?
What- will their comrades in arms think'
when they hear of us moaning over not hav-
ing enough gasoline to go fishing whenever
we feel the desire? What will they think of
our whining over coffee? What will these
men who face the bullets think of those who
grumble over taxes and food rationing?
There's food for thought, you people on
the home front in Port St. Joe. It's up to us
to show these visitors that we're endeavoring
to do our part while they risk their lives that
we may continue to be a free people.
It behooves us to pitch in, quit grumbling
and be on our good behavior, not "outwardly
'alone, but deep in our hearts.
Wonder what happened to all that talk we
heard some time back about drafting labor
and capital if another war popped up?
Seems to us that laborers were to receive
the same pay as the men in the service and
were to be furnished board and room and
clothing, just like the soldiers and sailors.
And capital was to be drafted to turn out
the tools of war and receive about two per
cent return on the investment.
Yeah-we've often wondered in the past
year or two.
Doc Norton told one of his patients the
other day: "Your chances are fair, but if I
were you I wouldn't start any continued
Some women get married just to have a
man around the house to fuss at.
Looks like horse steaks are going .to be
mistakes as far as most people are concerned.
In these days of meat shortage, what every
fiamfly needs is a magician to pull rabbits out
of a hat.-Titusville Star-Advocate.
ACROSS THE TRACKS
Every few weeks we read an interview
with former President Hoover, published in
the daily press, in which he states "the food
situation is grave" or "serious."
He probably didn't know it, but back in
1931 and 1932 the food situation, for a great
number of Americans, was really serious. Of
course this did not affect Mr. Hoover or his
friends, but now that we have rationing and
he cannot have his two chickens in his pot,
the situation is "grave" or "serious."
We appreciate the fact that we are faced
with a food shortage and we must do without
many things we are accustomed to eat, but
we will venture to say that when the ration-
ing of food reaches its limit, just before or
just after the war is finished, we will all be
eating better than one-third of the nation was
eating in 1932.
When we hear people grumble because
they can no longer eat a two-pound steak at
a meal, we smile with great satisfaction be-
cause they are learning how the fellow across
the tracks felt when he couldn't get one
pound of stew meat for his family of six. We
know it hurts them not to be able to get and
eat more than is good for them, and we also
know that most of Hoover's friends still get
-their big steaks and everything that goes
with them, but they must patronize the black
market to do it, and they may even get
caught at it, which would be much worse
than having to go on WPA as far as self-
respect is concerned.
Yes, it is a "serious" and "grave" situation
when the common laborer across the tracks
can buy just as much meat, coffee or other
food as the politician who fives on the bounty
that labor and capital produce. But it is only
serious to the politician, and it does him good
to find that food is only important when you
can't get it.-Highlands County News.
THIS AWFUL PROSPERITY.
Prosperity is. threatening the very exist-
ence of bureaucracy and it is a nightmare
of national adversity.
Witness the case of John H. Fahey, fed-
eral home loan bank commissioner, who is
so frightened at the prospect of people get-
ting out of debt, in which case they no longer
will need his HOLC, that he wants something
done about it. Banks are taking ovve' too
many of the good HOLC loans to suit Mr.
Fahey. These are loans on private homes.
This brings up the history of HOLC. It
was created by congress early in the depres-
sion as an emergency measure, with 'the ex-
press provision that it be liquidated "when
its purposes have been accomplished."
With indebtedness now discouraged as a
national policy, and at a minimum because of
universal employment and the shortage ol
consumer goods to purchase on credit, and l
with HOLC admitting excessively high oper-
ating cost, Mr. Fahey's remarks take on ,
The question boils down to one of finding
a formula under which a federal emergency
agency can be dislodged, once it becomes en-
trenched. If John Fahey of HOLC and Au-
brey Williams of NYA can find arguments to I
keep their large office forces and high over- I
head going, how can we ever expect to dis- I
pose of an emergency9' agency?-Janesville

Now that point rationing covers

all of these salient facts:
A farm slaughterer must make
contact with the county war
board. This is the paramount
thing. All others follow after.
He must obtain a slaughter per-
mit from' the county war board,
and, to qualify for a permit, he
must be operating under federal,
state, county or city inspection, om
must certify that he has adequate
sanitary and other facilities for
He must furnish to the boaru
information about his 1941 slaugh-

in Technicolor, playing Sunday

The, story, dealing with the ro-
mantic adventures of Sherazade,
exotic dancer of Bagdad, moves
swiftly against a vivid Oriental
background. It is a gleaming pan-
orama of desert warfare and slave
conquest, the plot highlighting
the rivalry of two princely broth-
-'s, Leif Erikson and Jon Hall,
over the affection of the dancer,
played by Maria Montez.
A multitude of Hollywood's most
beautiful girls are used in the lav-
ish harem and slave market scenes
and others are used for spectacular
Others in the cast include Saibu,
Billy Gilbert and' Edgar Barrier.
A simple brooder which will ac-
commodate from 50 to 75 chicks
until tney are five, or six weeks
old can be constructed by any per-
son wanting to raise poultry on a
small scale, and apparently there
are a lot of people in Port St. Joe
who are doing that, judging by the
number of chicles being sold by

NOTICE TO' SUBSCRIBERS AND
'The War Production Board recently ordered a 10 per cent
cut in newsprint for the larger papers, and it is expected
that another cut will be ordered about April 1. The or-
der did not affect The Star, but WPB did ask this:
"The publishers of small newspapers are expected vol-
untarily to make every possible economy in the use of
So, in compliance with this request, The Star is discon-
tinuing all subscriptions that are not paid in advance and
is limiting the number of subscribers that will be carried
for the duration.
We are in position to accept approximately 100 new
subscriptions, and when that quota'is filled a waiting list
will be set up and as present subscribers discontinue
their paper those at the top of this list will become
eligible as subscribers.
It is cur desire to keep every subscriber on our mailing
list, buit it is obvious that we cannot continue to mail
The Star to those who do not pay up their subscription
at expiration. We will give our old subscribers every
possible consideration, but we must also give considera-
tion to, those who have never been subscribers to The;
Star and wish to subscribe now.
It is contrary to the natural instincts of a publisher to
turn away circulation, but this we will be forced to do
when the quota we have set has been filled.
