Is Sensational Film
Powerful Drama Playing at Port
Theater Three Days Is Based
On "Education for Death"
Presenting a vivid picture of
what a Hitler victory would mean
to an enslaved world, "Hitler's
Children," playing next Wednes-
dlay and Thursday at the Port 'the-
ater, is a daring, highly dramatic
and thought-provoking expose, the
basis of which is an epic love
story, menaced by official frus-
tration and climaxed, with a double,
The unusual film is based on the
sensational best-seller, "Education
for Death," fby Gregor Ziemer who
saw the insidious growth of Nazi
teachings among Germany's young
,people and came to America to tell
what he saw.
Bringing as it does the first au-
thentic revelations of Nazi teach-
ing to the screen, the picture shows
those teachings for what they are,
an inhuman program for enslaving
the rest of 'the world under a Ger-'
man yoke, for ruthlessly. breeding
legions of illegitimate babies, for
killing off all who do not fit into
the Nazi scheme of -things.
In order that workers at the pa-
per .mill may have a chance to see
this picture, Manager Ben Rivers
announces that the theater will be
opened at 1 p. m. Wednesday only.
American People Face Acid .Test in
Treasury's 2nd War Loan To Raise
13 Billion Dollars in Three Weeks
The Nation Dare Not Fail in This Greatest
Financing Task in History-"They Give
Their Lives- You Lend Your Money."
Washington, D. C.-Coming as it does upon the heels of
income tax payments, the people of America will face an
acid test this month when the Treasury's Second War Loan
drive opens April 12 with an objective of thirteen billion dol-
lars to be raised through sale of Government securities.
A substantial part of this huge financing, the most stu-
pendous ever undertaken by any government in the world's
history, must be loaned by people in ordinary walks of life.
High Government officials have
pointed out that the nation must not
fail in this duty to our men on the
battle fronts who are now carrying
the offensive to the enemy at every
Stage. It is obvious to every thinking
an and woman that as the United
Nations take this offensive against
the dictators, the cost of war opera-
tions increases in proportion.
The American people must no
longer think of war costs in terms of
equipping a soldier, building a tank
or plane or a ship. We must now
think in terms' of the cost of bat-
tles, invasions and new offensives.
Attacking armies cost more money,
than equipping that army and we
must meet that increased cost by
buying more War Bonds and Second
War Loan Secprities.
They Give Their Lives.
It is not only necessary that the
American people left here at home
assume this additional participation
in the war effort-it is an honor to
do so for we here at home can
do no less than attempt to approach
the sacrifices of our brave men out
on the fighting fronts to whom the
last great measure of sacrifice is
but a daily offering. They give their
lives we are asked only to
lend our money.
And that is the theme of the Sec-
ond War Loan, "They Give Their
Lives-You Lend Your Money."
Financial experts who know mone-
tary conditions in the nation point
out that at the present time there is
in liquid funds, cash and commer-
cial bank deposits over and above
taxes and present investment in
Government Bonds, and over and

Our Country Right or Wrong
LOCAL NAZI ALLIES
It saddens us to think that there are people
in Port St. Joe-men or youths-who would
stoop so low as to steal money contributed
by loyal citizens to the Red Cross. Money
that was to be used in caring for our men o4
the fighting fronts-perhaps the very fathers
or brothers of those who took it..
But such is the case, and we cannot escape
the fact that we have real or potential allies of
Japanizism here, for the other night somit
person or persons broke into the Port theater
and emptied a gallon jug of approximately
$90 that had been collected by the theater
for the Red Cross War Fund.
Ordinarily your editor would not devote an
editorial to a robbery, no matter how large it
was, but when the matter involves funds of
one of the greatest charitable and humane
institutio6is of our nation our blood boils.
Thinking or unthinking, those who broke
-into the Port theater and stole this money
have made themsc4ves allies of Hitler, Hiro-
hito and 'Mussolini.

"It's just like I told you," the neighbor ad-

OUR LEGISLATURE CONVENES
The twenty-ninth session of the Florida
legislature opened Tuesday faced with as
grave and critical problems as ever confronted
the state's lawmakers, and with opportunities
for constructive statesmanship as great as
are the problems.
One of the biggest problems is the replac-
ing of lost revenue caused by the war. We
sincerely hope that our legislators, instead of
looking around for new tax sources will con-
centrate more on reducing present expendi-
tures--many of them needless. Let them ap-
ply the pruning knife vigorously to non-es-
sential state functions and overhead, for ir
there ever has been a time in the history oz
our state when strict economy should be put
into effect, this is the time.
Let us hope that our legislators will prove
their statesmanship equal to these greater re-
sponsibilities by not following the line of
least resistance and further depleting the al-
ready overtaxed pocketbooks of their con-
One of the leaders of the coal miners union
remarked the other day, in regard to the two-
dollar-a-day increase demanded in wages,
that if it was not allowed, the mining of coal
would stop regardless of consequences. Seems
like a pretty broad statement. Supposing the
men on the battle front in North Africa should
say, "Unless we get a ten-dollar-a-month
increase in wages, we will quit fighting the
first of April." Supposing the army nurses
should strike for a like increase and go off
work with the cots full of men needing at-
tention. What would we think of that? What,
if any, is the difference between -the two?--
