Our Country Right or Wrong
GUEST EDITORIAL ON OPA
) (This editorial represents an attempt on the
.part of your editor to consolidate the view-
points of a number of residents of Port St.
J6oe into a concise whole on what they think
of the death of the OPA. Naturally it will be
interlarded with a few of our own ideas on
the subject. However, the gist of opinion is
that of local business men, working men and
We were told that unless OPA is continued
wild inflation will be the result, but we were
also told that OPA would hold prices in line
and assure an equitable distribution of essen-
tial goods. It has accomplished neither. We
have had inflation right along as the result
of artificial scarcity of many articles. The
consumer has been convinced that price ceil-
ings mean nothing if goods are not available.
Full production with resulting competition
will be our best guarantee -against inflation.
When supply is built up to a parity with de-
mand, prices will adjust themselves without
the necessity .of returning to OPA. The con-
sumer will be able to get the things he needs
at prices he can afford to pay. Government
-ul.-i.i.- will be removed, with a consequertt
reduction in taxes. ,
On the other hand we find some of our lo-
cal people bemoaning the removal of price
ceilings. Will it work? they ask. Will prices
go up for a few months and then level off?
They see a spiraling of prices with the aver-
age citizen digging out his: savings in order
to live. With the rise in living costs labor will
be demanding higher wages, with a conse-
quent revival of strikes and a dropping off of
Your editor can see both sides of this vital
question, and whether or not OPA is revital-
ized, the suggestion we have to offer is that
everyone buy no more right now than is
absolutely necessary and hold to savings un-
til we find out whether we are to get price
reductions. If necessary, refuse to buy any
items on which prices suddenly shoot up. A
buyers strike would automatically forde the
price of any article back to a normal level.
Frankly, we believe that the country will
get along just as well without the government
interfering. Our nation is now in its 170th
year, and for 166 of those years we got along
nicely without "ceilings."
FAITH IN STATE'S FUTURE
Floridians generally, and Miamians in par-
ticular, will hail with delight the interstate
commerce commission examiner's recommen-
dation that control of the Florida East Coast
Railway be turned over to the St. Joe Paper
Company-a subsidiary of the Alfred I. du-
While the examiner's recommendation iv. -
still to be passed on, there seems little reason
to doubt that the findings will be approved
by those who have the final say.
Fact that the duPonts have spent millions
in Florida already, and that they are con-
stantly increasing their investments here, is
a good indication of their faith in the state' s
future. In this connection, their representa-
tives have demonstrated in the past willing-
ness to work with community and state 01-
ficials for the general good of all concerned.

Aid In Preventing
Polio, Says Doctor
Lacking 'a preventive or cure
for the disease, the public's pro-
tection against serious infection
with infantile paralysis lies in a
rigid adherence to a list of simple
precautions, says Dr. Terry Bird,
county health officer.
The agent which causes polio-
myelitis is know as a filterable
virus and the germ, a bacteria, has
never been isolated, states the doc-
tor. The source of infection is
thought to be from nose and throat
discharges of infected persons.
Bowel discharge from infected per-
sons also contains the virus. Flies
are known to be capable of trans-
mitting the virus.
With these things in mind, Dr.
Bird advises everyone to observe
the following precautions:;
Any child or adult who has fe-
ver of undetermined origin should
consult their family physician im-
Children should not be permitted
to attend any unnecessary public
gatherings during the prevalence
of the disease.
A high level of sanitary environ-
-ment should be established thru
fly control, proper disposal of gar-
bage and sewerage, and a general
community clean-up program.
Flies should be controlled by
screening, eradication of breeding
places and the use of DDT on
breeding places and' garbage.
Garbage should, be collected reg-
ularly and disposed of properly.
All garbage cans should. have
covers and. be sprayed with DDT.
The milk and water supply
should be protected' from contami-
nation by flies, improper handling
and improper sewage disposal.
By initiating and. carrying out
the above suggestions much more
will be accomplished in preventing
polio and other serious diseases
than by. establishing a quarantine
such as Georgia has, instituted
against Florida, said Dr. Bird.

We like to have relatives drop
in for a visit occasionally, but we
believe that after this we'll find
some other way of entertaining
'em than taking 'em fishing-per-
haps a few fast games, of ping-pong
What we're leading up to is that
last week-end Doc Goody and Sam
Bolin, relatives of our wife, came
down from Georgia and, naturally
we had to take 'em fishing. We
fished at Willie Rowell's place on
the Dead Lakes Friday (getting up
at 5:30-and how we hated that!)
but weren't very successful, get-
ting rained out. Ed' Pridigeon, Jr.,
volunteered to take our guests to
a spot where they could really
-each some fish, so early Saturday
morning (5:30 again!) we set out
up the canal in Ed's boat. After
fishing an hour or two a rain blew
up and we were forced to take
.shelter in a'palmetto hut about a
mile up the stream, getting a super
drenching during the trip.
We sat around a couple of hours
with Sam and Ed smoking us like
hams in their efforts to get a fire
going, and then started fishing
again. The fish were quite co-op-
erative, but in about an hour we
hit slam-bang into a real rain
storm and decided to head for
home. Actually the rain was so
heavy that coming down the c:aial
fish were swimming right along
beside us, shoulder high they
couldn't tell where the water of
the canal left off and the ra'n
We like to fish, but .we're dog-
gcned if we like to take a bath on
the installment plan. (And Ed sure
knows where the fish hang out,
for we brought back a-plenty.)
,.And speaking of fish if you
want something out of the ordin-
ary, go down .to the St. Joe Hard-
ware Co. and ask Horace Soule
for one of his "Fisherman's Yard-
sticks." And speaking of
Horace Soule, did you notice our
esteemed mayor tarring the root
of The Star building a week or so
back? Probably working up
good will -come election time. We'll
let you know for sure after we get
his bill for the job.
We followed a pair of ears hall
a block down the street the other
day and slapped them on the back
in the belief it was Stanford Beck-
ham-only to have them turn out
to be a perfect stranger. And
were our earsered'!
