During the first year of state-
hood the actually collected reve-
nue was nearly 50 per cent short
of tlose. expected returns, while
expenditures were almost 35 per
cent in excess of estimates. Ap-
proximately $28,000 had been coi-
lected, by the end of October, 1846,
and state warrants had been ls-
sued for over $58,000. The assera-
bly had( failed by a wide margin
to achieve its expressed desire for
pay-as-you-go government. In re-
ality the state ended her first fils-i
cal year with a floating debt, in
the. form of treasury certificates,
greater than the total yearly in-
come from takation.
,The .general assembly had also
failed to follow the basic policy of
its, finance committee with respect
to equality of tax levies. In pro-
portion to their relative values,
agricultural wealth was favored
and commercial wealth penalized.
Free negroes were singled out for
a $3 head tax, although even the
attempt to levy a 25-cent tax on
white' males was, defeated. Pedd-
lers, hawkers and itinerant traders
were assessed as much as $100 for
ea-ch county in which they sold
goods, a tax, which if enforced

Our Country -Right or Wrong

THE WEEKLY
A heartwarming sign that the civilization
we have known so long is still hanging on is
-the weekly newspaper. It is holding its own.
From 1938 to 1943, a very trying time for
.newspapers as well as people, only 454 of them
i went out of business. Maybe some of them
,became dailies. Maybe others boarded up for
the duration. But there are still nearly 11,000
over the land, doing their bit for the folk in
the valleys and hills.
.A few years ago there were those who fore-
,cast the death of the weekly. It could not
-withstand radio. The drain to the city, the
rush for defense jobs and call to'arms would
mean its doom. But the prophet did not know
the small community. Neither did he know the
,love one develops for running a small news-
paper. Even though the life is less glamorous
than that of a metropolitan daily, it has its
'own deeply rooted charms. It is hard to for-
get the lic-loc tune of the press on publication
day. It is a rare experience to know that she
is out again, to remove the-forms, redistri-
bute the type and mail her out to apprecia-
tive customers. It is a place where the back
office is close to the front, and the whole is
diffused with an atmosphere that is hard to
put behind and leave.
The little towns are still our strongholds.
There we find devotion and affection for com-
munity life. Folks may be complacent at
times, but they feel they are a part of their
government, not little saplings in a dense.
woodland. It is comforting to know that their
institutions are still rooted, that they are
weathering one of the great crises of history
and will live to carry on a great heritage.-
Dallas (Texas) News.


TAKE A STAY-AT-HOME VACATION
iODT's recommendation to "postpone your
travel vacation until after V-J Day" need hold
little inconvenience for the people of'Port St.
Joe. Beaches, lakes, waterways and fishing
camps are all right at our doorstep and with-
in easy reach. So we don't have to feel that
we're war-maroqued as far as recreational
facilities are concerned. There's no need to
"clutter up the trains and buses when all we
have to do'is pile the family in the car and
go out to the Gulf beaches for the day or
rent a cabin up on the Dead Lakes for a week
or so if we feel that we need a longer vacation.,
Sure, maybe we'd like to go to some of. the
nation's big cities or go and view some of the
national parks, but they'll still be there when,
the war is over and we canl visit them at our
leisure and not be forced to further overcrowd
the already overtaxed transportation facilities.
"-Spend your -vacation and your vacation
money here at home you'll probably get
just as much enjoyment out of it.

One of the radio comedians told of a family

estate that there were times when they al-
most wished he had not died.-Punta Gorda

THE SERVICE COLUMN
Newspapers throughout the nation carry !
weekly columns similar to The Star's "Our
Boys With the Colors" column. Why and how
the column contributes to the morale of the
man in the service and of the folks back home
is told in "The National Publisher," monthly
trade magazine. Quoting an army sergeant,
it says:
"A GI can makeheadlines in his home-town
paper on D-Day, A-Day, S-Day and all the
other days in the invasion alphabet. If he
gets a slug throug-h the chair knuckle, the
home-town gazette plants his picture where
all the neighbors can see it: if he squeaks
through without a scratch, the picture runs
anyway because he 'didn't' get shot. The ed-
itor picks up two pieces of copy from the
army public relations office. One story tells
about a new lightweight gas drum that will
save millions of cubic feet of shipping space;
the other mentions that some. home-town
doggie got himself a pfc stripe. The editor
plunks the gas-drum story into the waste-
basket and runs the pfc promotion. Sam
Sampson writes his mother from Tacloban,
saying he bumped into Joe Gish, who used to
drive the milk truck and the whole town
reads about the meeting."
This news about the local boy at war serves
a double purpose in building up the morale
of the soldier and bringing the war closer
to the folks at home, Sgt. Meyers reports. Ed-
itors feel that the average GI can't help be-
ing pleased when somebody mails him a copy
of the home-town paper with his name in it,
and the average civilian may have no idea
whatever of what the front is like, but he's
bound to feel a bit closer to the war when he
reads that the guy across the street had a
rough time at St. Lo or Mindanao.

THE 'ARITHMETIC' OF GEOGRAPHY
As the Japanese retreat from their earlier
conquests into an "inner" defense zone of
Korea, Manchuria and the.Japanese Islands,
.the war against Japan is changing into a war
of distance and geography.,
Geographically, of course, Japan is vulner- a
able both to 1)lockade and bombardment...Yet,
because of the immense distances of the Pa- t
cific. Japan's ever shortening lines of com-
munication give her an advantage over the
United States in "supply" differential that t
Nazi Germany never enjoyed. i
In other words, the problem confronting e
our army and navy chiefs is to equalize the
enormous differential in distance between our t
t
supply sources and our fighting lines, to bal-
ance the incomparably shorter communication 1
lines of the Japanese. P
That means, first and foremost,: more ships. '
since it takes almost three cargo vessels in
the Pacific to do the work of one in the At-
lantic. It also means more bases,, airfields,
staging areas, and construction of new ports.
And,. finally, it means gigantic additional c
quantities of paper to double and triple-wrap y
materiel for protection against the long 15,-
000-mile journey from Europe to the Pacific,
and for protection against tropic-rot after
the nmteriel gets there.
Pulpwood cutters in Gulf county are urged
to step up their production just a, little in or-
der to provide that "extra" paper so necessary
to equalize the present "supply" differential.
Top quality pulpwood, cut now, can divide.
the distances that separate supplies, from our
fighting ren, even as they multiply the effec-
tiveness of our Pacific forces. /
Let's keep the St. Joe Paper Company well
supplied with pulpwood, for it is a vital fac-
tor in the "arithmetic" of geography.

At three in the morning the wife awoke her
husband and said she heard someone creep-
ing up the stairs. He rolled over and growled,
"Well, thank goodness it ain't me."


Women are women, and so help us, we
wouldn't change the arrangement.---The Jas-

In 1876 an Englishman managed
to smuggle to his homeland some
seeds of the Hevea species of rub-
ber tree from South America. From
these seeds, by way of gardens in
London, emerged the great British
plantations in the Far East.
