CRISIS AND THE FARMER
Whenever the people on this earth face a
crisis their thinking gets back to funda-
mentals. Then they worry about the basic
necessities of life, about shelter, about getting
enough to eat and drink. And at that
time the eyes of the world all turn toward
It was that way during the last war and
* the one before. It was the same way during
the restless peace that came between.
It has always been the contention of the
editor of The Star that all wealth comes from
the land-minerals, wood and food-and to-
day that is being proven more strikingly true
as the farmer, once again, becomes a very
important man. Now, with the nations of the
earth faced with hungerand even slow starva-
tion, the farmer is being looked to as a sa-
viour qf humanity and its civilization.
Even in our own land of plenty there is a
tightening of belts, a growing concern over
future food supplies as this nation undertakes
to feed undernourished Europe and Asia.
Thir farmer, who, unlike other people has
never lost his touch with earthy things, is the
man of the moment. It is' in his hands that
destiny has placed the key to the kind of
world that we and our children shall share
The entire world awaits the farmer. He is
at one and the same time ruler and servant
to the .people of, this earth.
A traveling preacher was due to deliver a
sermon at a western 'church. Arriving at the
church, he paused to read the sign in front ot
it, which said: "Subject for this Sunday: 'Do
You Know What Hell Is?' Come and hear

ACT OR PERISH
The Supreme Being must be chuckling to
himself as government and' military authon-
ties talk of the "next war." Only scientists
seem capable of recognizing the import of the
atomic age. Only they seem to realize that
mankind cannot survive an atomic conflict.
"Planning" for the next war means planning
The book, "One World or None," describes
what would happen if some morning an atomic
bomb should fall on New York: "Half a mile
in the air above the target the bomb bursts.
About 300,000 of the persons living or work-
ing in an area of less than 200 blocks on Man-
hattan Island suddenly cease to exist. Another
300,000 are seriously injured. And thousands,
who apparently escape, are to die of the ef-
fects of radiation. The destruction of property
is incalculable and it is not confined to this
area. Many blocks away other buildings col-
lapse or are damaged, killing and maiming-
hundreds in the ruins."
The above book was not written by a head-
line hunter. It was written by levelheaded
men of science who do. not frighten easily.
They are telling the statesmen of all nations,
the peoples of all countries, to understand, to
consider, to remember and to act---or perish.
The dinner started with cream of tomato

and sugar. The. speaker cleared his throat,

,How the Poppy Became
War Memorial Flower
With Poappy Day set for Satur-
day, May 25, in Port St. Joe, it is
appropriate at this time to repeat
the story of how the wild, poppy of
France and Belgium became the
memorial flower of America's dead
,of both world wars.
Amid the desolation of the battle-
front in World War I, the poppies
were the one touch of nature's
beauty that survived. The little
flowers grew along the. trenches
and shell holes, and over the raw
earth of the !battle. graves. In the
minds of the men fighting there,
the poppies became associated with
their dead comrades.
Expression was given to this
sentiment by Col. John McCrae,
Canadian medical officer, in his
immortal poem, 'with its lines:
"In Flanders 'fields the poppies,
Between the crosses raw on
Replicas of the Flanders fields
poppy 'were first 'worn in America
in honor of the war dtad in 1918,
and the wearing of these flowers
on the Saturday Ibefore Memorial
Day soon became a natibon-wide
custom. The poppy is also the me-
morial flower of Great Britain ana
is worn thorughout the British Em-
pire on Armistice Day.
When World War II began claim-
ing American lives, the poppy,
quite naturally, became the sym- climb of each began is the 1870s
,bol of these addled& sacrifices ,for when Japan began to adopt West-
the nation. The largest part of the ern culture after her opening by
World War II battle deaths also the United States, and, when Ger-
occurred in northern Europe -where
the poppy grows, bIut no matter
where Americans died, the poppy
pays tribute to them.
Disabled veterans of ,both wars
now -make the 'poppy to be worn in
memory of the dead of both ,wars.
Poppy Day contributions aid the
disabled ot both wars, their fam-
ilies, and the families of the dead.
Millions of Americans will wear
the veteran-ma-d'e poppies this year
in silent tribute to those who lie
beneath the crosses in Flanders
fields and in the American war
cemeteries throughout the world.
Axis Shipping Nil
many became a united nation.
As a result of World' War I con-
struction, the Japanese merchant
fleet had risen to 2,325,000 gross
tons in 1919. In the interwar years
this tonnage more than doubled,
until in 1939 it amounted to 4,-
754,699 tons, surpassed only 'by
the United States and Great Brit-
ain. The German rise in, this pe-
riod, was even more astounding.
The Allies left GeTmany with vii-
tually no seagoing vessels after
the last war, only to find her ,oc-
cupying fifth place in 1939 with
2,994,026 gross tons. Today' ithe

And To Remain SO cording to the inter-allied, control
Japan and' Germany, whose mer-
chant fleets ranked, third and fifth
in size, can be counted out of the
world' shipping picture for many
years to come. Both cargo fleets,
which amounted' *to little or noth-
ing before 1870, have returned to
that status and undoubtedly will
Remain there 4or many yeras.
The cargo fleets of these ag-
gressor countries were operated
as spearheads of economic pene-
tration and political imperialism.
The rise of both these mechant
marines was fostered and fi-
nanced by the state. The upward
council, and' General Dougals Mac-
Arhur has ordered' the Japanese
to list all merchant shipping still
afloat. The Tr. S. navy has revealed
that the Jap cargo fleet has been
reduced by six-sevenths.
Clear cutting is the removal of all
the mature timber from an area at
one time. Management for continu-
ous forest production presupposes
that clear cutting will be followed
by provisions to assure new forest
growth by seed from surrounding
stands, by seeds which -have been
left on the ground, by planting small
trees, or by direct seeding.

Varied Tire Wear
Variation in car weight, the de-
sign of the .front and rear wheel
suspension, the springs and shock
absorbers, and in steering mecha-
nism also may'result in variations in
tire -wear. Car designs which are
based on requirements for easy
steering and comfortable riding
sometimes may cause an undue
amount of tire wear. It will, there-
fore, be a logical development in
the future for automobile designers
to provide a balance between tire
wear, steering properties, riding
comfort and resistance to skidding
on slipper surfaces.
