Again Pops Up
Provides for 3 Per Cent Levy On
Many Commodities, Rentals,
The old bugaboo sales tax has
reared its head again in the 1947
session of the state, legislature
with the introduction by Se-na-
tor W. A. Shands of Gainesville, a
leader of the powerful majority
cloc in the senate, of a bill calling
ior a 3 per cent sales tax to be
applied against nearly all com-
modities, rentals and amusement
He estimates' it worid, produce
from $60;000,000 to $100,000,000 a

NOTICE OF INTENT TO APPLY
FOR LOCAL LEGISLATION
Notice is hereby given that the
undersigned will apply to the cur-
rent 1947 session of the Florida
Legislature for the passage of an
Act, entitled as follows, to-wit:
AN ACT creating, establishing
and organizing a fire control dis-
trict in Gulf County, Florida,' to be.
known and designated as St. Jos-
eph Fire Control District; defining
its territorial boundaries.; provid-
ing for its government, administra.

lection, who shall be the governing
authority of said dIistrict; author-
izing said commissioners, under
certain conditions, to purchase, op-
erate and, maintain fire control ma-
chinery and equipment; providing
or the operation and use of said
machinery and equipment; provid-
ing for the co-operation of such
district with other fire control
units within or adjacent to. said
district; providing for the inter-
change and use of such fire con-
trol machinery and, equipment with
other fire control units within or
adjacent to said district; provid-
ing for the appointment of a fire

district; providing for and au-
thorizing the levy of an ad valorem

real estate taxes down.
The bill would also cut a penny
off the tax of three cents on each
bottle of beer, reduce the present
cigaret tax to three cents a paci-
age from four, .and trim the whis-
key tax from $1.92 to $1.20 a gallon.
Real estate, sales would be taxed
at 2 per cent, but all other taxable
sales, and- rentals would bear the
3 per cent levy.
The sales tax act would be ad-
ministered by the state beverage
director, who would collect the
levies from retailers, landlords and
amusement owners, but the bill
provides, specifically that the tax
must be passed on to the consumer
No tax would be paid on milk,
meat, edible groceries, power, fer-
tilizers and seed, school books,
school lunches, newspapers., farm
products when sold by the pro-
ducer or bought for processing,
nor on alcoholic, beverages, manu-
factured tobacco products and mo-
tor vehicle fuels, which are taxeo
On small purchases, to avoid
actionss of counts, there would be
no tax for a single sale of less than
9 cents, a one-cent tax on sales
from 9 through 40 cents., two cent-
on sales in amounts from 41 cents
through 70 cents,, three cents on
sales of 71 cents or more. The
sime bracket would apply to odd
cents in sales amounting to more
than .a dollar. A group of pur-
chases at the same time from the
'-ame store would be classified as
a single sale.
Considerable opposition, is de-
veloping against the measure, and
while it may pass the senate, it is
predicted the representatives will
fail to approve it.

Our Country Right or Wrong
A NAVAL RESERVE UNIT FOR ST- JOE?
"To be prepared for war is one of the most
effectual ways of preserving peace."
This simple truth, phrased by George Wash-
ington, shines forth more brightly\ today to
guide the United States than it did when he
uttered it 157 years ago. History emphasizes
and reinforces his wisdom.
-If Amlerican civilization is to endure, we
must be ready to defend it. If peace is to be.
assured, the United States must remain
strong. A huge standing army and navy, how-
ever, are .foreign to-our traditions. How, then,
can we remain strong? -
:One of the surest, most economical ways
to accomplish this is through a vigorous, na-
tional guard and naval reserve, the local, v61l-
unteer, civilian organizations that mean real
worthwhile spare time jobs for the young m.n
of the nation. -.. ..
This is the Amefican way, for always in
American history it has been the civilians
who have borne the brunt of defending our
ideals. This is the democratic way, [or what
can be'more democratic than citizens volun-
tetring 'a.pait of their spare timhe-.that tthey-t
may be trained to defend their homes, their
state, their nation?
These two services are vital to all of us as
forces to be trained, equipped and ever ready
for instant mobilization to supplement the
regular army and navy in time of threat. They
commend themselves for many other reasons.
-Here at home, the individual may train
-while pursuing his regular occupation and'
living a normal civilian life. He draws a full
day's regular pay for two hours of spare time
training a week and for each of 15 days of
fiekl training. He may learn new skills, or im-
prove old ones, and acquire valuable experi-
ence in organization and leadership.
Port St. Joe can't have a national guard
unit, their being such organizations at Pan-
ama City, Apalachicola and Marianna in this
section of Florida, but iwe could have a naval
reserve unit if a sufficient number of young
men would take an interest in it. Such a unit
would be a community asset. It would be a-
spark to real community service. It would be
citizenship at work. The community and lo-
cal merchants would benefit, too, from fed-
We have been assured of a communications
unit in Port St. Joe as a starter, and as the
number of men joining up increases, we could
expect the installation of various types of
equipment and perhaps eventually an armory,
or whatever it is the naval reserve uses.
T hm Coledewey is the local recruiting of-
ficer and has all the dope for anyone who is
interested in joining-.
'I AM AN AMERICAN DAY'
Annually, by resolution of congress in 1940,
National Citizens Week is observed in May
and "I Am An American Day" will be its cli-
max this year on May 18. Federal, state and
local governments and private organizations
will foster programs in many cities through-
out the country.
The program is designed especially to honor
the 2,000,000 young men and women who reach'
their majority during the previous 12-month
period and to impress on foreign-born citizens
the duties and responsibilities of citizenship.
This is something which is not only needed
by those two groups, but also by our adult
citizens. President Truman asks for exercises
"designed to help our citizens better under-
stand their privileges and responsibilities as
participants in our representative democracy."
Judging from the number of voters who
turn out in Port St. Joe at times when mat-
ters of importance to the city as a whole are
to be passed upon, our people need to be im-
pressed with their responsibility in their own

as possible. From funds raiseCt
last year the Florida division of
the American Cancer Society also
established facilities which pro-
vide such -things as protection, di-
agnosis, treatment, nursing, serv-
ice, bandages and dressings, in 12
counties. At the same time, the
Florida division of the American
Cancer Society was able to con-
tribute nearly $40,000 to the na-
tion's research effort.
Plan's this year call for raising
$150,000 to maintain the program
already under way. More will be
needed if the activity is, to be ex-
panded, Mrs. Kenney said. Gulf
county has a minimum goal of
$1-200 at its share of the. state
The speaker said the drive for
funds to fight cancer is like going
to the rescue of someone in dan-

doubt that Gulf county would go
