local application. They included,
however, the $27,469,395 general

Tokyo is a smouldering wasteland. The
palace of the Japanese emperor is reported to
be considerably battered. Great industrial
cities like Nagoya, Yokohama and Kobe -are
being flattened by American bombers with
their loads of blockbusters and incendiaries.
Yet it is paper--plain, ordinary paper like
that turned out by the St. Joe Paper Comne
pany, made from pulpwood-that is striking
deepest terror ini the hearts of the Japanese
In a home-service broadcast, addressed to
the Japanese people and picked up by Ameri-
can listening posts, the Japanese procurator
general was heard to say: "The enemy has
recently been dropping in earnest on various
areas, bombs and leaflets which can be called'
paper bombs. The leaflets are all aimed at
causing anti-war thoughts and antagonism
among the military, governmental and civilian
people. Those who pick these up will please
hand them in immediately to the nearest po-
lice station. It is necessary that every indi-
vidual make himself fight against them with
Only a great fear could have prompted such
a broadcast. It is fear born of truth, and theo
realization that the truths expressed in those
leaflets could break the chains that bind the
ignorant Japanese people to slavery.
So pulpwood products are performing a-
multiple .mission in this war. Pulpwood is
providing the paper with which to wrap, pack
and tag the supplies sent to our fighting
forces. It is furnishing the smokeless powder
with which Japan's great cities are being
smashed, and it is providing the 'paper bombs"
which are destroying Japanest militarism

OUR SOLDIERS CAN TAKE IT
Will our soldiers in the European theater
be returned to their native land immediately
(barring time for policing Germany) or will
they be transferred to the Asiatic .fr6nt with-
out being given a chance of a furlough home?
These are questions of tremendous import-
ance to both the soldiers and to their families.
Some argue that the soldiers would find it
easier to be transferred direct to the Asiatic
front while they are still in. military harness
than to be furloughed home for 30 days, only
to be transferred then across the Pacific to
fight the Japs.
The American soldier, time out of mind,
has held it to be his inalienable privilege and
right to gripe when conditions did not suit
him. This question of what is going to be his
fate now that the European war has ended,
he feels, comes under that category. There
is much to be said for his argument that, after
having risked his health, limbs and life itself
in fighting the Hun, if he has beep so lucky
as to escape uninjured, he should not be put
in jeopardy a second time.
While the soldier of the United States may
gripe when he feels he is being unjustly
treated, nevertheless, once he is convinced
that the orders given him are based on justice
and the best interests of his country, he is
ever ready to shoulder any added burden
which. the authorities may ask him to assume.
This is all part of the American tradition.
Much as soldiers hate war, they recognize
that they are all citizens of a free republic
and, as such, they do not have to be driven
with threat of whip, spur or bayonet in order
to do their duty. It is their full wish to carry
their share of the load in preserving their
country and their homes. That is why Amer-
ica is strong, and America will remain strong
so long as that point of view prevails.
Present indications are that the best brains
in this country are keenly aware that they
must find a solution to the various compli-
cated problems that plague the world and this
country. The GI Joes on every battle front
have ;done their part. The civilian population
on the home front has done its part. Similar
co-operation in peacetime will result in bring-
ing prosperity and .happiness to people at
home and abroad. The present world up-
heaval has cost too much in blood, sacrifice
and money not to have,a better world evolve
from the ruins. No doubt it will take time.
The achievements of this war must add up to
a postwar world that will yield some compen-
Money doesn't necessarily mean happiness
for its possessor. It is very debatable whether
a person having $20,000,000 is any happier
than the person having $19,000,000.
Speed the day when a man will pay as much
attention to his own body as he does to his
right to. work whether he belongs
to a labor union or not, and pro-
hibits employers from making
union or nonunion affiliation f

Idea Holds promise
State-Wide Program, Partially In
Effect In Gulf County, Bodes
Well For Agriculture
IProgress and increasing interest
in the timber-grazing-game pro-
gram bode well for the future of
Florida agriculture. The plan is
state-wide in scope and in Gulf
county a number of ,ranchers and
landowners are co-operating to the
fu'lest extent in developing the
The program, developed and
proposed to Florida landowners
three years ago by Louis T. NIe-
land, agricultural extension serv-
ice forester, has attracted wide-
spread attention from farmers,
cattlemen and other landowners of
this state and also from foresters
in this and many other states.
It is only logical that it should
meet with favor by landowners,
for its primary purpose is to In-
crease the value of the land and
the products that come from the
land now and, in the future. In a
nutshell, the idea is to utilize the"
land for the purpose to which it
is best suited.
Some land is more suited to cul-
tivation than other land, some is
more suited to forests and game,
and some is more suited to live-
stock production. Many farmers
have all three types on their farms.
To realize maximum benefits and
profits from all the land by de-
voting the different types to their
best possible purposes Is the aim
of the program.
If this program is 'widely de-
veloped over the state-and the
indications are now quite promis-
ing-it will not only mean larger
-income. from the land during the
next few years, but it will also
mean that the land will be im-
proved as time goes on. In other
words, it will increase the future
production possibilities of the land'.
War needs are, calling., for enor-
mous quantities of forest products
and even though efforts are being
made to cut only the trees that
should be cut according to good

LEGISLATURE PROVED TO BE
A "TAX AND SPEND" GROUP
'The 1945 legislature proved to
be a "tax and spend" group, for
they levied $26,500,000 in new
taxes and approved expenditures
of $4.300,000 more thaf 'that and
dipped! into the $10,000,000 general
revenue balance on hand in A-pril
to pass out $3,700,000 in deficiency
appropriations and extra current
expenses. This did not include the
cost, of the session, nor does; it
cover costs of the extra session,

that must be replaced. The exten-
sion program provides for replac-

which could produce good forest
It also provides for continued

lands best suited to forests and
