Our Country Right or Wrong,
WHY WE SAVE NO SCRAP MATERIAL
The editor of The Star receives a constant
barrage of posters, window cards, stories and
edicts on salvage-paper, fats, scrap iron, etc.
-from governmental agencies and from the
Florida Defense Council, all of which we are
urged to publish or pass out to merchants and
When the variiops salvage programs got
under way we worked like a beaver putting
the material in type and handing out the
posters and window cards. We saved news-
papers and scrap paper from our paper cut-
ting; we even saved the worn out rubber
crutch tips from our crutches; and our wife
began saving waste fats. We scraped up all
the old iron, steel brass, and aluminum we
could find and tossed it onto the community
scrap heap. And 'most everybody else in the
city followed suit.
Pretty soon we had about a ton of waste
paper in the back of our print shop and our
wife had a couple of gallon cans full of waste
fat. We tried to get somebody to take the
paper away; our wife took the cans of fat to
the meat market-but nobody was inter-
ested. The butchers told us that they. had
no way of disposing of the fats, and we also
discovered that no provision could be made
to have the waste paper picked up. And every-
one else who had worked assiduously to save
scrap metal, paper and waste fats discovered
the same fact. Otto Anderson, whpo had'a pile
of old automobile bodies beside his garage
was told to turn them in to the scrap drive
or else. He contacted every available source
to have them taken up-and he's still got 'em.
We put our waste paper and fats out in the
alley and let the garbage truck haul them off,
as did everyone else. And still we're urged to,
save all scrap material and fats.
The people of Port St. Joe tried to comply
with all these requests, but it soon became
apparent that their efforts were wasted. Now
no one is saving these waste materials. And
we can't blame them.
