HERE'S A TIP
You folks who are sending gift

ei itor, a guy who knows: Don't
wrap the items in fancy tissue pa-
per, use a copy of The Star if he
doesn't receive it, or some other
paper if he is a Star subscriber.
If there is some space left in the
box, drop in a magazine you have
finished reading, or today's issue
of some daily paper. HIe'll apprect-
ate it and so will his buddies, for
practically every piece of reading

scribed for the paper for a year
to be sent to Cpl. George Y. Core,
with an anti-aircraft battalion in
Louisisria on maneuvers.. He said
that George had been moaning for
some time to have The Star sent
to him. Incidentally, George says
that he bumped into John Dendly,
who is with an armored division.
Sends Photo From New Guinea
Opl. E. R. Dubose, who is sta-

Our Country Right or Wrong
WHAT ABOUT OUR MILK PROBLEM?
Milk deliveries into Port St. 'Joe were cut
off almost two weeks ago, and yet nobody
seems to care whether we get milk or not,
whether the health of our children and our
babies is endangered by lack of this com-
modity. A lot of people are talking about the
matter but no one seems willing to do any-
thing about it.
Recently in Panama City a milk shortage
developed and the people over there didn't
stand around wringing their hands and moan-
ing. They took the matter up with the proper
authorities, with their congressman and sen-
ator in Washington, and soon sufficient milk
to meet most needs was flowing into their
city and has continued to do so.
One of the reasons we are getting no milk
is that dairymen cannot produce and deliver
it at the ceiling price set by OPA, and they
are drying, up or selling their cows. We can't
blame them for that, for we should not ex-
pect them to operate at a loss.
The same situation prevails all over the
nation, not just in this area, and the matter
is now before :.:i.niress. As usual, the matter
has ,developed into a squabble over whether
the dairymen should receive a subsidy or be
allowed to increase the selling cost of their
Practically all of the people we have talked
with in Port St. Joe say "Let them raise the
price of milk, we're willing to pay more for
it if that will bring it back." And that proD-
ably would be found to be the general opinion
all over the nation.
A subsidy to the producers will not solve
the problem. They should be allowed a fair
profit over their cost of production. A goV-
ernment subsidy merely adds to the already
heavy tax burden and places the dairyman
in the position of accepting a dole, a "hand-
out," or charity-whatever you want to call
it-from the people he serves.
We in Port St. Joe could take the matter
up with the regional OPA office, and the
answer we probably would get would be
something like this: "Your dairymen have
been delivering milk to Port St. Joe at such
and such a price, therefore they must con-
tinue to deliver it at that price." Sure, but
if the dairyman can't show a profit he isn't
going to bring in the milk, regardless of what
the OPA says. And he'll probably tell the
OPA to go straight to.
What we need to do here is to take the
matter up with Washington authorities,
through our senators and congressman, to
allow the price of milk to be increased in
this section, regardless of the OPA.
A committee should be formed immedi-
ately to handle the matter or the city gov-
ernment itself should take it up.
From the way Allied planes are battering
the Fortress Europe, there won't be a wall
left intact against which to stand Herr
Schickelgruber when they take him out to
shoot him at sunrise.
Congress may not do anything to suit youth
-but it keeps on trying.
THE DRIVE PROGRESSES
Perhaps some readers of The Star are won-
dering why we are devoting so much space
to the Third War Loan Drive. Well, folks,
it's because we consider this war loan for in-
vasion one of the most important things in
the world, and we will continue to consider it
so until the drive ends.
Reports from the Gulf county home front
indicate that the people of the county are
considering the Third War Loan just as im-
portant as we consider it.
It may be 'a bit premature, and then again
it may not be, but from here it looks like
Gulf county will go way over the top of its
quota of $56,039. Most people are buying
more than that extra $100 bond over their
regular monthly quota.
And folks, that is something, for most of
us are not what you might call "monied," but
just plain everyday working people.
To those of you who have bought your ex-
tra bond in this campaign we say "well done."
To those of you who have not yet bought
that extra bond, we say "buy it today!"
