Because of the increased, use of
sugar as a war material, several
changes in the sugar rationing
program has been announced by
the Office of Price Administration.
At the same time, OPA said that
sugar stamp No. 30 in Ration Book
4 will be valid indefinitely and will
not expire March 31 as previously
announced. Sugar stamp No. 31
will be valid April 1 for 5 pounds
of sugar, and no expiration date
has been announced, for it.
OPA said it could. not announce
definitely its program for ration-
ing sugar for home canning at this
time, but it is not expected that all
allocations of sugar by the War

'ROOM FOR RENT' AD
GETS QUICK RESULTS
Bill Boyles, down at Costin's
Department Store, was feeling de-
spondent. He had a swell house
rented, but unless he could rent
out a room he would have to give
it up, due to the high rental. He
had a bright idea, and put a "Room
for Rent" ad in The Sitar.
Shortly after the paper cans
out he telephoned frantically not
to run the small 25-cent ad again.
He'd rented the room and, had a
dozen or more would-lbe renters on
his trail all day.
So Bill Boyles keeps, his nif^t

JUDGE J. OLLIE
Candidate for the Office of
UNITED STATES SENATOR
Faith in the intentions of our Federal Govern-
ment is being shattered by the steady push toward
centralization of government and of power.
The time has come when the voters of this democ.
racy must reassert their loyalty to our time-honored,
time-tested principles of government. when our
nation must be restored to the voters who are
its constitutional rulers.
Judge J. Ollie Edmunds is devoted to these prin-
ciples of government- and to our American ideals
and way. of life. He will fight for these things and
for the constitutional rights of the citizens of Flor-
ida as our United States Senator.
f He is a man of strength and integrity .of
proved ability and long experience in public life.
More important, he is a plain American with a
normal American outlook who wants our Americap
way preserved for future generations.
Your belief in these traditional American pri*.'

Our Country H Right or Wrong
EVERY TOWN A HARBOR
For centuries, commerce has followed the
seaways and the waterways of the world.
Hitler's grandiose scheme for world conquest
had, as one of its objectives, the capture of
Suez, water gateway to the fabulous ports
of the East. The banks of the Don and the
Dneiper have been bloody battlefields because
these rivers carry supplies to the army that
controls them, even as they once brought
food and ores and manufactured articles to a
people at peace.
Stalingrad and Kiev are important Russian
cities because they are ports for river traffic,
as St. Louis and New Orleans are important,
cities in this county. Boston and New York,
and Seattle and San Francisco also became
important because of their fine harbors. The
huge mill of the St. Joe Paper company was
built in Port St. Joe because we have one of
the finest natural harbors on the Gulf coast
which affords cheap transportation.
But now the picture is changing as a new

fore. In the dawning Age of Flight, business
centers will bloom bout airports J-stt as
surely as they once sprang up around the
Nature provided harbors for ships, but
"harbors" for airplanes can be built by man.
Conservative authorities have estimated that
the airports of this nation will have to handle
three or four times the present amount of air
traffic immediately after the war, and a huge
amount of this traffic will be with our South
American neighbors. Port St. Joe is ideally
situated as a ,.-.1.1 'ing off point for a goodly
share of this traffic, but it won't come this
way unless we are prepared for it with mod-
ern airport facilities. Not only will airports
become essential to a community's business
life, but they will help provide jobs for many
men now in the Air Forces who will return
after the war with a desire to continue in the
calling they know best.
Airport planning is not something that canl
be done overnight. It requires months, some-
times years of study, not only in determining
the best possible location for a flying field,
but in acquiring the land, arranging financ-
ing, improving roads, expanding public util-
ity services, and myriad other details.
Progressive communities near Port St. Joe
are preparing now to receive the miracle of
air commerce which will begin to spread over
the world when the war ends. It will keep
them humping to be ready for that day. But
will we of Port St. Joe be ready?
Well, we finally got our income tax blank

SOLDIERS AND POSTWAR JOBS
One of the many questions which have
been discussed on a nationwide scale and
which are still being debated is whether the
soldiers in the camps in the United States and
those on the battle fronts, no less than the
civilians here at home, really know what the
objectives of this war are all about.
In a general sense, no doubt, the average
soldier and civilian would say that we are
fighting to exterminate the tyranny of fas-
cism-a tyranny that attempts to enslave the
mind as well as the body. But when the shoot-
ing stops, another kind of war will begin-a
war to conquer poverty and .ignorance, and
to aid removal of the nightmare of unemploy-
The problem is not a hopeless one by any
means, for economsits, while they formerly
emphasized the distribution of wealth, are
now emphasizing the production of wealth.
This is an important and significant change,
because an equitable division and distribution
of wealth is much easier from abundance than
from scarcity. There will bie a large number
of articles for which there will be a big de-
mand in the postwar world, articles Whose
production has been halted by the war.
The resumption of the manufacture of
these articles will provide employment for
many, but not for all who are capable and
eager to work at get-ahead wages instead of
merely subsistence wages. The soldiers ought
to be accorded first chance at remunerative
work. If there are not jobs enough to go
around for both returning solders and civil-
ians, a serious problem will arise calling for
the best brains of private citizens of all groups
and their government.
Because it would blight the hopes of re-
turning soldiers were they to find after this
war conditions like the soldiers of World War
I had to face, everyone should do their utmost
to assist these men returning from overseas.
Walking the streets seeking jobs that do not
exisfis not the experience that is going to
make the returning soldier feel his sacrifices
overseas, were appreciated by the folks back
home. The country needs, first of all, jobs
for the returning soldiers able to work and
desiring a job; secondly, a job for each civil-
ian who is able to work and desires a job.
The accomplishment of this task, the suc-
cessful meeting of this challenge, will prove
to the world the virility, ingenuity and hu-
manitarianism of the American people, both
individually and as a nation.
PULPWOOD VITAL TO RED CROSS
Unless there is a continual flow of pulp-
wood into the mills, the American Red Cross
will be severely handicapped in its far-flung
missions of mercy among Allied service men
The Red Cross drive this month and the
Victory pulpwood campaign have a similar
objective: To help American fighting men
wherever they may be. Pulpwood does" its
part by protecting their equipment, medical
supplies and food in transit to the battlefront.
More.than 2500 medical items are packed- in
paper. Pulpwood makes the surgical dress-
ings and supplies the blood plasma containers
which Red Cross field men use in saving the
lives and easing the pain of the wounded.
Every box of food, candy and tobacco that
goes to American prisoners of war in enemy
territory is packed in paper-board made of
pulpwood., And so is the welcome Christmas
'.pa,:1::,g. which went to our fighting men by
the thousands last year.
Many of us cannot give the service men
the personal attention that they get from the
Red Cross. Our job is on the home front. But
we can make their tasks easier, their lot more
comfortable. We may indirectly save their
lives. Pulpwood is our medium.
Contribute generously to the Red Cross
and cut pulpwood for American fighting men
