Our Country Right or Wrong
THE WAR IS NOT OVER
That the war is not yet over is a warning
that has been given the American people by
General Dwight D. Eisenhower and others in
high ranking military positions.
There are many sound reasons for the army
and navy taking this *position. In the first
place, it is factual. The casualties announced
after Saipan and the Normandy invasion bear
tragic evidence that such is the case.
But there are other factors involved which
are vital to the future peace of the world. Re-
liable information shows that the strategy
of Germany at the present time is to win a
negotiated peace so as to prepare for another
try at world conquest. German diplomatic
and military leaders know that they cannot
win the war on the military front, but they
also know that the German armies are- still
powerful and, while those armies of the Nazis
retain their power, Germany would like to
have a negotiated peace, for Germany would
have c''n-idcra:ble bargaining power at the
.pe'ace:'oinferenc>:, but if the German armies

so that the German populace can see for:
themselves that their Wehrmacht has been
defeated, nay more, destroyed, then German
diplomats, army officers, industrialists and
junkers will be compelled to accept uncondi-
tional surrender, and the chances of Ger-
many's starting another world war in the
next twenty'years will have -been consider-
ably reduced and perhaps made impossible.
No, the war is not yet over and, as the
popular song of World War I put it: "It won't
be over 'till it's over over there." The hardet-
each of us works on the war effort, the
sooner the war may be over. We all know
that the men over there will do their part. It
remains for us over here not to let them down
for one minute, or one fraction of a minute,
and the American people will not.
Probably most of the taxpayers in Port St.
Joe did not know it, but the Gulf county
school board held a public meeting at the
courthouse in Wewahitchka Tuesday morn-
ing for the purpose of discussing a proposed
increase of more than 5 per cent in the 1944-
45 school budget. Likewise, the board ot
county commissioners held a similar meeting b
on' August 23 to increase expenditures, for il
operation of the county government for the
1944-45 fiscal year. The editor of The Star
believes that notices of such important mat-
ters should be published in both papers of the tc
county in order that all interested persons
may see them. Very few people in Port St.
Joe take the "official" county paper and con-
sequently did not know of these two meetings.
