NEW HOME FREEZER HAS"REACH-I CONVENIENCE" LIKE REFRIGERATOR
Home Economist Jane Schleicher is shown removing a frozen roast
from a test model of the new upright home freezers that Westinghouse
will build soon after civilian goods production is resumed; As family,
companions to household refrigerators, these new home freezers will

"Defrosting," Mr. Moore added,
"will be as easy, but far less trr-
quent than defrosting an electric
refrigerator, andi it will not be
necessary to remove foods from
the storage sections. Actual home

show that users open their cabi-

THAT G. I. BILL OF RIGHTS
Here in Port St. Joe we don't hear so very
much about the G. I. Bill of Rights passed by
congress, but from other parts of the coun-
try are coming cries of anguish, and from ail
appearances a big storm is brewing, for while
some parts of the bill are okeh, a number or
portions seem to need rewording and revision.
It seems that there is a heck of a lot of
red tape in connection with it and that the
veteran who wants to borrow money finds
himself stymied at every turn. This is evi-
,denced by the fact that up to the middle of
February this year there were only eight ap-
plications in the entire" nation filed with the
veterans administration for farm-loan guar-
antees, with three granted, and but eleven for
business-loan' guarantees, with six granted.
A million and a half veterans were eligible
for these loans, and that is the record.
Charges have been made that members ot
congress were greatly concerned over cost of
the G.- I BLill :.,.l that they cleverly hedged
it about-with all sorts.of restrictions so what
looked like .nice.setup for the veterans is,_nio
chance at all.
But regardless of how-come the bill got
the way it is, there'll have to be some changes
made in it, and if congress chooses to resist'
making the changes-well, just between you
and me and the gatepost, we'd hate to be a,
member of that congress!
MORE THAN SKIN DEEP
They say beauty is only skin deep. Perhaps
that is so-who are we to say. But much of
it comes from mines hundreds of feet deep in:
the earth. A lot of women here in Port St.
Joe would' be. surprised to learn of some of
the weird chemical tricks that contribute to
their (shall we say breathtaking?) appear-
ance. Most of these chemical tricks use coal.
Nearly all textile dyes are derived from coal.
Dozens of chemicals and resins obtained from
coal are :i...:.-. to process or finish fabrics.
From coal come plastics for dress buttons,
ornaments, shoe heels. Nylons (when you can
get 'em) are made of coal, air and water!,
"Accessories to match" also owe much to
coal; colors fqr lipsticks and nail polish; the
scents for perfumes ; plastics for costume jew-
elry, handbag frames, compacts altogether,
more than 200,000 useful products depend on
coal--and many of them are used to glorify
THE GIMJI SHIMBUN
A solitary plane appears overhead, wheels
slowly, disgorges a shower of needle-like
bombs 'and slowly disappears into the
Down below- perhaps in some steaming
jungle, twenty'-thousand pairs of Japanese
eyes spot the plane and follow the falling
bombs. Half-way down each bomb bursts
open, exploded by an intricate timing device
into a snowstorm of 15,000 to 50.000 freshly,
printed newspapers. The latest edition ot
Gimji Shimbun is being, delivered! I
The Gimji Shimbun is only orie of many
Japanese language newspapers distributed
regularly to the Japs by our psychological
warfare division. The Parachute News, which
is dropped over enemy-held parts )f the Phil-
ippines, is another. One newspaper goes into
Burma, one is dropped on China, and one is
even flown to the Japanese homeland.
Made up to look like a typical Nipponese
newspaper, and complete with pictures, comfc
strips, editorials and the latest war news,
these newspapers are proving immensely ef-
fective in fighting Japan.
At the beginning of the Burma campaign,
for example, only one in 115 Japa surrendered
the others preferred to fight and die. Yet
after our flyers initiated their "newspaper"
bombardment, one among every 20 Japs be-
gan to lay down their arms.
The army soon discovered that Japs who
surrendered also "talked," giving military in-
formation that saved untold American lives.
All through the Pacific an increasing num-
ber of Japs are beginning to surrender. And
millions of copies of the Gimji Shimbun, the
Parachute News or one of the other newspa-
pers are helping them make up their minds.
HOW SHALL WE CUT OUR TIMBER?
At war's end, the South"s forest resource
will be at a dangerous new low. Timberland
owners will be at the crossroads of widely di-
vergent courses. One road leads to conserva-
tion and increased timber growth. The other
way heads toward continued devastation and
Along the conservation route there lie pros-
perity, jobs and ample wood resotirce. Inade-
quate timber supplies, unemployment, and
poverty stalk the other path. Port St. Joe de-
pends for its income primarily on forest pro-
ducts. It is up to the people here to see that
our resources are not wasted.
For generations timber products have held
a foremost place in the South's economy, pro-
viding a livelihood for hundreds of thousands
of our citizens. When war came, the forests
of the South provided a. substantial part of
the material required for national defense, as
witness the thousands of tons of paper and
pullp put out for war use by the St. Joe Pa-
per Company and the hundreds of thousands
of feet of lumber turned out by the St. Joe
Lumber & Export Company for government
Never before has the average citizen been
so fully aware of the vital importance of our
I With nearly 200.000,000 acres of potentially
productive forest land, the South has a re-
source capable of supporting its present tim-
ber industries. But these industries cannot be
maintained unless our forest lands are kept
growing timber ,at something like their full
growing capacity. Even fast-growing south-
ern forests will cease to produce if cut too
heavily, burned too often.
Too much cutting in the past has been done
without regard for the future. The best trees
have been cut out, the poorer species left
to take over the land. Too often nothing has
been left to grow or furnish seed for a new
crop. Too many immature stands have been
cut when they were in their fastest growth.
F- r too many fires have swept away the
young growth that is the promise of future
There is a better way to handle our tim-
ber lands. Intelligent cutting can take out
the old, the overmature, the slow-growing
and the defective trees. The younger, more
vigorous trees can be left to take on more
growth. Young trees can be thinned instead
of slaughtered, leaving a well-spaced stand
to grow more rapidly. Fires can be kept out.
Always, the forest can be kept growing.
Will we have a thriving forest industry in
Gulf county 20 years from now? It all de-
pends on how we treat our woodlands in the

THE SOUTH AT THE CROSSROADS
Thete seems to be quite a. dither
over the fact that there are no
"suitable" war songs for our sol-
diers of 'today to sing Back
in '17 and '18 there was. similar
concern. Seems a lot of folks de-
sired us doughboys to march, along
singing songs of high aspiration
and deep sentiment, or noble de-
termination. That's a laugh.
Marching soldiers sing what they
feel like singing and what they
sing usually pains the: ears of 'the
song writers andshb.cks-thP sen-
sibilities of the moralists. It
was anmsing to me when I got
back from France in 1919 to find
that the 'fplks at home had im-
agined us regaling the French
peasants with "Over There," or'
sitting around in. circles singing
"Keep the Home Fires Burning.'
"Annie Laur.ie" and "Home, Sweet
Home." Drizzle, mud, cooties
and- sour wine hardly inspire ro-
bust singing. What was sung?
Well, "Lil' Liza Jane" marched a
heap of weary miles, but two
French gals passed her like sthe
was standing still. "Madelon" ana
"Mademoiselle from Armentieres.'"

elon, appear like a shrinking violet.
