Back Issues of Magazines
Needed By School Library
The high school library this week
became the proud possessor of the
"Abridged. Reader's Guide," which
indexes many magazines published
from 1944 to date. Since organiza-
tion of the library doesn't date
back to 1944, back files of some
magazines are needed. t
No doubt many readers of The
Star have stacks of magazines they
threaten to discard. If such be the
case of any on the following list,
'they are asked to contact Miss
Marjorie philyaw, school librarian,
first. Just this week Miss Nor-
ton's civics class needed many
magazine references that the. pres-
ent incomplete files could not pro-
vide, and magazine articles give
much up-to-diate information not
yet printed in book form.
Some of the following magazine
issued are needed from July 1944 to
date: American Magazine, Atlantic
Monthly. America, Better Homes
ind Gardens, Current History, Fly-
ing, Good Housekeeping, Harper's
Magazine (July 1944 to September
1945). Hygeia, Life (July 1944 to
September 1945), National Geo-
graphic (July 1944 to Sept. 1945),
Nature (July 1944 to Sept. 1945),
New York Times Magazine (July
1944 to Oct. 1945), Popular Science
(July 1944 to Oct. 1945), Popular
SMechanics (July 1944 to Oct. 1945),
Readers Digest (July 1944 to Oct.
11945), Science News Letter, Time

"America needs a more realistic
appreciation of true world condi-
tions," Rep. Bob Sikes stated upon
his return to the district last week.
Sikes, who recently returned from
a 40,000-mile,, .six-week tour of the
Far East, went as a member of the
subcommittee of the house military
affairs committee to investigate
conditions in American occupied
"It's time we learned to sell
America psychologically, and stop
giving it away without knowing
what we are getting in return," he
said. in speaking of our diplomatic
relations, with other nations.
"The committee was charged
with a threefold responsibility,"
Sikes said. "First to study military
installations; second, 1 to observe
morale and condition of our troops,
and third, to report on disposition
of suiplus property."
Sikes charged that the Pacific
bases haven't kept pace with the
times, that the occupation forces
are staffed with inxeperienced men
and:" that disposition of surplus
property is bogged down with red
tape and inefficient personnel. H-e
claimed morale was bad in som,
occupied, spots, but on the whole
was in good condition.
He lashed out at diplomatic
short-comings, charging the diffI-
culties lay in too much dependence
on dollar diplomacy and not enough
on ability to sell Americanism.
He warned that World War II1,
whi-'h could be averted, woulI
conime from the confuse .d power pol-
itics' of China, Korea and Japan.
"In these areas, China, Korea
and Japan, lie the ultimate answer
to war or lasting peace in the Pa-
cific. Under the leadership of the
United States, diplomatic conversa-
tions with Russia looking to settle-
ment of the confused power poll-
ties there can, if proper co-opera-
tion is received; settle the cause of
world .peace for years to come,"
"America needs a more realistic
appreciation of true world cond'-
tions. It's time we learned to see
America psychologically, and sLto

Sikes concluded. "Seeds of another
war have already been sown on the

most of which were deliberately

fires is criminally wasteful and

Our Country 7'^ -' Right or Wrong
GO TO IT, JAYCEES!
With their house numbering project already
well under way, we're anxious to see the
newly-forme(d Port St. Joe Junior Chamber of
Commerce get busy on the second main proj-
ect they have lined up-that of having Port
St. Joe designated as the deep water terminal
of the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee waterway
In our opinion, Port St. Joe is the logical
deep water outlet for this project, since we
have one of the finest natural harbors on the
Gulf, have our own private canal connecting
with the intracoastall waterway, and have un-
excelled dock facilities.
Panama City and Apalachicola already' are
pulling strings and putting on the pressure in
efforts to be designated as the terminal. But
we have other advantages than those stated
above. Shippers would have about 30 addi-
tional miles to haul their goods if Panama City
,were designated, and Apalachicola Bay does
not have' sufficient depth to allow large ves-
sels to come in, and should, a channel be
dredged there it would soon fill up with sedi-
ment from the Apalachicola River, necessitat-
ing continual costly dredging.
We believe the entire community will, get
behind the Jaycees on this project, as it will
mean an enormous flow of raw and manufac-
tured products through our port with neces-
sarily increased activity that will benefit every
resident of this area.

go around the world on a bicycle. By the time

COMMON SENSE CAN WIN!
Common sense (an.beat inflation. and to-
day, more than ever, each of us here in Port
St. Joe has to do his' or her part.
During the war the people of St. Joe, in
overwhelming majority, knew it was good
common sense to set aside part of their big.
wartime ear-nings for the future. We bought
War Bonds to the limit, going over the top in
every bond drive. We put money in savings ac-
counts, as S. L. Barke of the Florida Bank can
testify, and we paid off debts.
ilany predicted that after the war we would
all go on a spending spree. Some of us have,
but the majority have used good sense in
handling their money.
Today it is more important than ever that
we continue to use our money wisely-refrain
from bidding up prices, buy only what is needed
until goods are plentiful again, hold on to oui-
HWar Bonds, continue to put aside for the fam-
ily's future in government savings bonds, in-
surance and savings accounts, for in just a few
e years these "easy" dollars we are making to-
f day.will be worth two or three times what they
are now--in purchasing value.
No thinking man or woman in, Port St. Joe
I wants inflation. Through the exercise of good
common sense -the people here, and in every
Port St. Joe all over the nation, can check the
J forces of inflation. -. ,
FEC FOR FLORIDA
' Senator Claude Pepper still goes blissfully
along trying to put control of the Florida East
Coast Railway where he thinks it ought to
go to serve his political interests, regardless
of where the people of Florida want it to go
to serve the interest of the whole state. His
"exceptions" to the findings of the interstate
commerce commissioner, who had recom-
mended award of the line's control to the du-
Pont group, read more like an election cam-
paign document than a reasoned brief on a
matter affecting the economic lives of his
Those constituents have shown, over-
whelmingly and repeatedly, that they want
control of the FEC to remain in Florida, and
that they want the road to remain indepen-
dent of other railroad systems. Senator Pep-
per, who is a vaunted foe of monopoly, wants
control of the FEC to go to another railroad,
thus eliminating a vast area of competition on
rates and service. He is out to get a political
scalp, and the well-known public can be the
well-known profanity.' -
The ICC can't by antly stretch of the imagi-
nation fall for a line like Pepper's. It is a peo-
ple's agency, and it will find for the people.

e ~Are Returning Veterans
During the war you heard a lot
about how hard it was going to be
for returning veterans to get ad-
justed to civilian life how
they'd be "different."
Well, plenty of them have re-
turned to our town, and a finer,
steadier bunch you couldn't ask
for. Most of them are back at the
same jobs going with the
same nice home-town girls (get-
ting married, some of them; and
setting up families) renewing
the same old friendships.
Even their amusements are the
same. Nothing more exciting than
fishing Seward's creek or pitch-
ing horseshoes enjoying an
outdoor barbecue with friendly
wholesome beer and pleasant talk.
If they've changed at all it's in
the direction of. maturity and tol-
erance... tolerance for everything
except dictators, and those who
would destroy our democratic
principles of live and let live. And
from where I sit, that's another
reason to be proud of them.
