War Fund Drive
Gulf County Chairman Asks. That
All Pledges, and Contributions
Be Turned In Quickly
iChairman. Harry McKnight, who.
heads the War Fund Drive in Gulf
county, Monday received a tele-
gram from Governor Millard Cald-
well, state chairman of the Na-
tional War Fund,, urging that t-he
drive here be brought to a conc'u-
sion as quickly as possible. The
governor's telegram follows:
"Needi for successful' conclu-
sion of your National War Fund
campaign made more urgent in
reccent request from General
MacArthur for 80 additional USO
campp show units to be sent into
Pacific to entertain troops in oc-
cupation of Japan and elsewhere.
Also need for USO services ad-
jacent to some 500 veterans' ho>-
pitals. Sincerely hope you and
committee will bring Gulf county--,
campaign to 'total victory at
earliest possible date."
Chairman McKniight states that
the Gulf county War Fund drive is
barely past 'the half-way mark, lbut
he believes our quota can be at-
tained if every worker contacts& all
citizens in their areas and if po-
tential givers make their contribu-
tions and fulfilll their pledges.

ready have made their gifts," he
said, "but the,,,e rre :o ... ir_;,., mnor

Our Country Right or Wrong
RIGHT UNDER YOUR NOSE
As a country turns toward socialistic prac-
tices, the ultimate goal is always the sociliza-
tion of land. We saw this in Russia, and now
in staid old England, which in its last elec-
tion voted definitely for socialization of bank-
ing, mining and railroads, it is rumored that
plans are underway for a beginning in the
dividing up of land.
Here in the United States, while we have
felt secure in the private ownership of prop-
erty, we have fostered gigantic plans for the
federal socialization of electric power and
many other activities. There is now "politi-
cal" pressure for federal housing, federal fi-
nancing of every kind, federal medical atten-
tion, and even federal feeding of many per-
sons. All this will supplant private enterprise
and state and local governmental authority in
looking after the needs of local citizens.
Now comes the inevitable-suggestions for
government ownership of land in the United
States. Of course it is just a small cloud on
the horizon at present, but so was govern-
ment in other lines of business a few short
years ago. With so many other nations defi-
nitely committed to socialization, and with
strong political pressure in our own country
along those lines, landowners who have
smugly sponsored socialization of other ac-
tivities, can well begin to consider to what
extent they will be permitted to enjoy the
private ownership of land in the years ahead.
When a nation starts socializing its natural
resources, land is the kingpin of them all. So
don't be overcomplacent with your belief that
it can't happen here-it is happening here,
right under your nose, and coming closer to
your own hearthstone every day.
The $5 federal auto use-tax has been abol-
ished effective July 1946. We paid it for use
of our cars when we couldn't use them be-
cause of gasoline and tire shortages ; now that
we can get plenty of gas and an occasional
tire to again use our cars, the use-tax is
repealed. Looks like it wans't so much a use-
tax as it was a tax on not being able to use
the taxed article.

VETERANS' LAND LAW
CALLED 'IDLE GESTURE'
Commissioner of Agriculture Na-
than Mayo said Tuesday that the
1945 legislative act granting 40-
acre homesteads to Florida veter-
ans was "simply an idle gesture"
because they wouldn't have the
available land' allowed by the act.
The law provides that any vet-
eran of World War II may apply
for and, receive a 40-acre home-
stead' on wild and vacant state land
but it must be arable and he must
live. on it and' improve it for three
years from 90 days after he gets it.

Editor The Star:
Fer 'folks who don't never git a
pat on the back-or almost never

look high and now to find enn.-
buddy more entitled' to it than the
boys who patrol our highways .
These here highway guardeens are
your friend versus somebuddy to
dodge-'essen you bion up to some-
thin'. You don't git picked up jest
fer the 'personal amusement of the
patrolman. It'd be a heap more
pleasant fer him ifen he did'it
have to wave you over to the road-
side. He gits no commission per
arrest-it jest makes him more
work, more reports.
I know one o' these guys he
looks after traffic up and 'down
our highways here in Gulf county
('course he don't git down here in
the Swamp lessen he's goin' fish-
in')-he's a regular gentleman--but
also he ain't no sissy. A burglar

Arerica's largest army is its Army of War Bondholders-85 million
strong. From our farms and factories, from our cities and towns, from,
our armed forces they come, again and again, to invest in America.
This great savings crusade, born of war, is one of our great
hopes for peacetime prosperity.
And marching within the ranks of these 85 million bond.
buyers are the Americans who also maintain more than 75
million bank accounts.
A great arsenal for peacetime prosperity-bank
savings, War Bonds, Victory Bonds! T
Together, wisely managed, they can help forge thow
weapons of peace:-jobs, industry, fair prices, stability,
Keep on marching toward security! Today,
while goods are still scarce and the threat of rising
prices continues, plan to spend wisely. Plan to
save regularly. Save, by buying more of your coun-
try's Bonds and holding them. Save, by build-
ing up your bank account. You and your family
will reap the harvest of your sacrifice and thrift.
