Our Country Right or Wrong
WOULD NOT SUBSIDIZE PRESS
There's a lot of hullabaloo going on up ini
Washington over the question of whether or
not to appropriate $30,000,000 to be used for
War Bond advertising.
Those opposing the move say that such ac-
tion would subsidize and consequently abol-
ish the-freedom of the press.
That angle is a lot of nonsense. If those
congressmen think they can control the poli-
cies of the American press for a paltry $30,-
000,000, they've got another guess coming.
Those at the head of our government would
not dare dangle such bait before newspaper
publishers just for their support-it would in-
volve too much fireworks for them.
The editor of The Star believes that as far
as the government is concerned, newspaper
advertising is just as much of a commodity,
and as valuable a necessity, as beans, bullets,
planes, tanks and ships, and the government
shouldn't expect the newspapers to carry the
entire 'load, nor spend valuable time soliciting
aTireadv overtaxed businesses and individuals,
for'e-; /irto -sponsor- rprfi-_i- pro-
grams for- the biggest corporation in the
world-tle United States government.
Your editor is getting tired of touring the
business-district of Port St. Joe like a Salva-
tion Army lassie with a tambourine asking
for sponsors for War Bond advertising. In
fact, we have told the businessmen that we
would much rather see them spend such do-
nations on War Stamps or Bonds-that they
would get more return for their investment.
The government is now providing subsidies
on butter, meat and coffee, and for some time
has been subsidizing the railroads and oil
companies-all of which comes out of the
pockets'of the taxpayers and returns nothing.
Should the government purchase advertising
space it would be getting dollar-for-cdollar
value, ands-this has been proven in England
and Canada. In these countries it has been
found that increased bond sales due to adver-a
tising more than justifies the expenditure.
Your editor would not sell his right to say
what he wants in the columns of The Star
for any amount of money, and the goverin-
ment could no more control the policies of
The Star by purchasing white space than
could the Ford Motor company, the Purina
company, or any local business concern.
Keep smiling-and buy War Bonds!
POST-WAR PLANNING IN
STATE IS PROGRESSING
(Continued from page 1)
Industry has turned southward
in recent years, partly because of
government encouragement an d
partly because industry found that
the South is a fertile field for its
development. Recently much of
this industry is producing articles
of war and -the coming of peace
will mean that unless' something
is done, these facilities will be
idle. This does not apply to Port
St. Joe, since all industrial de-
velopment here is pre-war and
TIME TO QUIT KIDDING
In spite of the apparent success of the last
War Bond drive, the ominous fact remains
that of the billions of dollars worth of bonds
sold only a small proportion went to indi-
viduals. As usual, banks, corporations and
other institutional investors with accumu-
lated reserves absorbed most of the obliga-
This means that the prosperous masses are
still riding the crest of a luxuriant war boom,
and this adds up to but one thing: The peo-
ple at home are still trying to fight the war
the easy way. Instead of sacrificing comfort
for the sake of victory, as our men are sacri-
ficing their lives, they are, so far, using the
war as a device to wallow in more comfort.
We wonder how many Gulf county people
who are drawing down $75 to $100 weekly
bought one $100 bond during May? We'd be
willing to bet we could count them all on one
hand and have fingers to spare.
Will our soldiers return to a luxury-sati-
ated bankrupt homeland with a congress still
arguing over picayune tax details, or a land
where the integrity and solvency of their
government has been preserved?
The answer lies with us.
THAT EDITORIAL 'WE'
A subscriber to a Pennsylvania weekly, be-
ing displeased with some remarks made by
the editor, went in to whip him. How well he
succeeded is given in the editor's own words:
"There was a blow; somebody fell. We got
up. Turning upon our antagonist, we suc-
ceeded in winding his arms around our waist,
and by a quick maneuver threw him on top
of us, bringing our back at the. same time in
contact with the solid bed of .the printing
press. Then, inserting our nose between his
teeth, and cleverly entangling his hands in
our hair, we had him."
Which reminds us that City Clerk Mark

said "we" editpriflly. We informed him

DON'T FORGET, OR YOU'LL BE SORRY
The second installment on your income tax
is due June 15-just two weeks off-and if
you should forget this important matter you
probably will be sorry, for the penalties really
do mount up.
Don't sit back and expect your tax to be
cancelled, for Florida's collector of internal
revenue,, John L. Fahs, emphasizes that the
June payment must be made regardless ot

But aside from the matter of
conversion of present war plants,

Port St. Joe is particularly
blessed with one of the finest har-

that it was one of the finest na-
