We pass on the following letter

it will correct the impression given
in this, column two weeks ago that
Miss Lois Crosby, who is in train-
ing with the WAVES at Cedar
Falls, Iowa, was. homesick:

Another casualty of the war. The

upon the good, old rubber garter,

to check the circulation.
They used to smile with confli-

about 9 o'clock Sunday morning
when the small one-room house in
which- he lived in the colored' quar-

were destroyed by fire.
It is believed the fire started
when Sapp, who was ill, tried to
light a stove. An -effort was made
to remove him from the 'burning
building, but the flames hadi made
such headway when discovered
that rescue efforts were futile.
The two buildings were owned

Propose Organization of
Civic Body to Develop
And Follow Up Plans
And Ideas Submitted
The matter of (post-war develop-
ment in Port St. Joe and Gulf
county was the main topic of dis-
cussion Thursday, evening of last
week by members, of tthe Port St.
Joe Kiwanis club at the regular
weekly meeting at the Port Inn.
Members had, been told at a pre-
vious meeting to mull over the
matter and tell what they thought
about it when called upon.
The subject, which took the
form of ail informal round-talble
discussion, was opened 'by Thoe.
R. L. Carter, who pointed out that
the government will loan billions
of dollars for public works at the
conclusion of the, war' in order to
provide jobs, and suggested that
the people of Port St. Joe should
consider the matter of getting
some public projects here. He said
that in order to clarify matters, a
need was, present for some sort of
clearing house for ideas, siach as
a chamber of commerce, in order
that -onj-riiln may be accom-
plished and manufacturers and) dis-
tributors be, brought- here.
Tom Owens, county school su-
perintendent, stated that naturally
his thoughts hadi been- along
school lines and the possibility of
securing land now for construction
later of a -modern school plant
here. He also pointed out that we
need more paved streets, sidewalks
and curbs, and, most of all, a rec-
reation center. "The only way we
can make plans for these things,"
said Mr. Owens, "is to form a com-
mittee of representative citizens to
develop the various plans for post-
war work that are suggested,
Money for these projects, which
the government will match dollar-
for-dollar,: could be raised by as-
sessing (by vote of the people) a
small millage, say onr-half mill,
and let it accumulate." ,
Editor W. S. Smith pointed out
the vast possibilities latent here
for trade with Latin American
countries, which will be the best
customers of the. United States at
the conclusion of the war. He
pointed out that Port St. Joe is
one of the most strategically lo-
cated ports in the nation to handle
this post-war shipping, having a
natural harbor surpassed 'by none
amd being closer to 'South America
than any other port, with the ex-
ception of Tampa. He pointed out
that the sides of a "V", with the
point placed on Port St. Joe, will
pass through St. Louis and' New
York, and that inside that "V" is
located the greater part of the
manufacturers of the nation, and
that the network of railroads In-
cluded! in the area all lead dl-
rectly to the A & N which serves
"With our fine harbor -and port
facilities, which could be enor-
nously expanded," said Mr. Smith,
'we stand at the crossroads of
he two Americas. There will be
great demand for farm mach-
nery, automobiles and light air-
'lanes in the South American

Our Country Crf Right or Wrong
LIVES-THE PRICE OF STRIKES
Most of us don't realize the full threat to
the war effort that attaches to labor trouble
in the coal mines. It is estimated that about
100,000,000 tons of coal will be chemically
utilized, this year in the manufacture of ex-
plosives, plastics, the priceless sulfa drugs,
solvents, food preservatives, insecticides, fer-
tilizers, rubber, nylon and hundreds of other
vital war materials.
Now if there is not sufficient coal to meet
the demands of manufacturers turning out
these various items, a shortage will develop
at various points on the fighting fronts-and
many of our men will lose their lives because
of a lack of the materiel of war. Some will
die for the lack of a few rounds of ammuni-
tion, others from tropical diseases which
could have been licked with a few ounces of
some Aul'fa derivative; a strategic beach-head,
secured at the cost of several hundred lives,
may be lost for lack of a few aerial bombs.
And chances are that among the men who.
lose their lives for lack of a few vital items,
there will be some from Gulf county. It
might seem odd that miners striking in Ten-
nessee, Kentucky and Pennsylvania could
cause the death of a Gulf county youth, but
that's the way it works out.
No power on earth will be able to bring
back the lives of the service men who may
be lost because of the coal shortage. Men's
lives are the price of strikes in wartime.
A new army explosive is reported to be 35
per cent better than TNT. We'd like to get
hold of some of that to rid our Victory Gar-
den of cutworms-nothing else fazes 'em.
"People don't seem to be afraid of hell iny
more; indeed, they hold a contemptuous at-
titude towards it," a local minister remarked
to us the other day. .We told him we didn't
doubt it at all, considering the condition of
the world today-familiarity breeds contempt.
We were reading a-story in the paper the
other day where a New Jersey man ate 366
apples in one hour. Looks like he might be
rather fond of apples. *

THE PULP-PAPER OUTLOOK
New uses for paper products resulting
from war needs and war-stimulated technical
developments suggest the probability that the
pulp and paper industry will become a factor
of much greater importance in the economy
of the United States after the war than it was
before. If it does, the South will be a princi-
pal beneficiary in view of the fact that the
pulp and primary paper industry is sixty per
cent rural, located in communities of less
than 25,000. Fernandina, Port St. Joe and
Brunswick are examples.
Although the South has not yet come fully
into its own in the development of this indus-
try-it has about one hundred million dollars
invested here there are enough plants in
this section to bring a large share of the
profits from the products which are now
valued at ntore than two billion dollars a year.
This will be especially beneficial inasmuch
as a large share of the returns will be dis-
tributed in areas where they are needed.
A factor of special importance to the in-
dustry is a probability of new markets for its
products. Some of these new markets are
certain to be in the Latin-American coun-
tries, with which we are trying to build
stronger ties. The. department of commerce
thinks that China, India and certain Latin-
American republics, which anticipate in-
creased industrialization, will offer opportun-
ities for the greatest expansion of markets
for paper after the war. And this is a matter
of significance to Florida coastal cities now
engaged in studies looking toward the build-
ing of their ports into a larger place in the
country's import and export structure.
Should the developments that are now vis-
ualized come, they will bring needed benefits
to the South, in the form of employment,
wages and profits. But they will also em-
phasize the problem faced here in the propa-
gation and conservation of our forests. A1-"
ready these resources are subjected to a rapid
rate of depletion, which is commanding the
best efforts of the foresters and conservators
toward holding the cuttings down to a point
where they will not exceed replacements.
Wisdom dictates, under the circumstances,
that along with the plans for the larger de-
velopments and bigger markets, should go a
program designed to keep a balance between
the cuttings and the plantings of trees.-Jack-
On the few occasions recently when we
have hoarded our "A" coupons for a suffi-
cient length of time to get enough gasoline
to travel more than twenty miles on one trip,
we have noted recently quite a few purebred
cattle throughout Gulf county. That looks
good to us, for it means future prosperity
and security, not only for the owners but for
the whole county as well, and it certainly
means that the scrub cow of the past is on
the way out.

.0 KNOW the highways of the nation has long been the
business of our Travel Bureau. To chart the roads on legible
maps, to classify them as to surface and character, to spot the
sections where construction or other obstacles block traffic-
and to tell all who may inquire-these are the full-time
specialty of Kyso Motor Travel Bureau.
Designed to function in peace time, it has been wholly
converted to a war time basis. Pleasure trips are "out" for
the duration, but many highways are very busy, nevertheless.
Officers and men are hastening to camps, or moving from
camp to camp, or "heading for home" on leaves and furloughs.
It is important for them to save time-miles-gasoline--
rubber. They ask our Travel Bureau to help them to conserve
--cut corners-avoid costly detours. The same consideration
applies to commercial vehicles, bound on missions of war
necessity.... This service is free.

turers of these things. In addition
to the water-borne commerce,
there will be an enormous increase
in air traffic, both passenger and
freight, between the two Americas

situated as a terminal for these
airlines. The need for an airfield

most important post-war considera-
W. C. Roche lamented the lack
here of some sort of promotional
body, pointing out that the govern-
ment oil terminal now located at
Lynn Havein was first slated for
.Port St. Joe, but due to the fact
that Panama City had! a group of
liverwire "'uirinet-. men whio, went
to Washington .and put the pres-
sure on in the right places, the
terminal was shifted to the neigh-
boring city. "That's what we need
here," said Mr. lache. "A cham-
ber of commerce -would do more
than any other type of organiza-
tion to bring such projects to our
city and .county,. We can't sit
around and. say, 'Why don't THEY
do something,' because WE are
THEY,, and it's up to US to do
whatever is done."
B. H. Dickens andl J. E. Bounds,
in a cross table verbal bout,
pointed out that we need .a cen-
tral organization to contact those
manufacturers a n d individuals
who come here looking for a loca-
,ion, instead of having them con-
tact perhaps one or two of our
citizens who tell them a little and
then send them on their way. "We
need some sort of body to point
out the advantages we have to of-
fer," said: Mr. Dickens, "and. then

suggested that a 'businessmen's

There is no room for waste in wartime Amerise. It is the patriotic
duty of each and everyone of us to take good care of the things
we have. This is especially true of your electrical appliances
. .. They must last 'til after Victory.
In these busy days your electric refrigerator, washer, veemum
cleaner, toaster and other labor and tinme saving appliances take
on an added importance. By using them wisely you have more
time to give to Red Cross, Civilian Defense or other vital wartime
services. Take good care of them-if they need fixin'.
