Florida Ideal Site
Says State C. of C.
Port St. Joe, With Superb Harbor, Docks, Rail and Water
Facilities, and Proximity To Latin American Countries,
Could Be Site of Numerous Industries
The weekly business review sent out by the research division
of the Florida State Chamber of Commerce, this week points
out that Florida is an ideal spot for manufacturers of specialized
consumer goods to establish plants due to the high level of the
consumer market in 'the state and in the proximity to south-
eastern U. S. and Latin American markets.
Numerous times in the past the editor of The Star has de-
voted considerable space to the same subject, particularly the
.ideal location of 1'ort St. lIe, with its fine harbor and dock fa-
cilities and rail connections, for trade with Latin American
*countries. Now we'd like to

Tax Booklet Prepared To
Lure Wealthy To Florida
A booklet aimed at bringing more
millionaires to Florida by showing
them how .much tax money they can
save is ready for distribution.
It has a full s'et of tables com-
paring Florida's taxes on wealth and
estates with those of eight other,
states. Loose leaf pages covering
IS other states are available for in-
sertion to meet specific requests.
The booklet shows, for instance,
that a resident of Florida who has
a million dollars worth of securities
yielding him an- annual income of
$40,000 will have to pay $1000 taxes
on them. If he lived in Ohio, his tax
would be $2000, in Massachusetts
$2400, New Yonk $2,612.50, North
Carolina $4,940, Pennsylvania $4000
and Kentucky $6,S30.
If a man should die and leave an
estate of a million dollars, as a resi-
dent of Florida his estate tax would
'be $38,200. It would be that same
amount in Pennsylvania, but if he
made. his legal home in North Caro-
lina it would be $60,450, New York
$42,300, Michigan $55,000, Kentucky
$97,350, Ohio $36,700 and Massa-
The book also quotes Florida's
state contsitutional provisions pro-
hibiting issuance of state bonds, ex-
empting homesteads from taxation,
limiting intangibles taxes to two
mills, prohibiting income taxes and
limiting the estate tax to the
amount which the federal govern-
ment turns ,back to the state.

'which a resident of another state
can declare himself a citizen and

Fuller Warren came to town,
He didn't need a speaker,
For when he starts a-soundin' off
You kin hear him in Topeka.

The band turned out to greet him,
He never said a doggone word
But folks, were pleased to meet him.

Cobalt Deficiency Loss
Cobalt deficiency, which occurs
widely in New Hampshire and oth-
er states, for many years has
caused heavy losses to the livestock
industry. The New Hampshire sta-
tion identified the cause and showed
that the slow starvation of sheep
and cattle due to cobalt deficiency
can be overcome quickly by admin-
istering small amounts of cobalt. As
a result, most of the feed manufac-
turers serving the region now in-
clude two or three grams of cobalt
sulfate per ton of feed.

dent: Mandy came to our church
regularly. She was always smiling;
she seemed to radiat?. good cheer
She missed the service one Sunday
and came into father's study the
next morning to leave her offering.
His spirits were low that day, and
he, remarked, with a ton"! of envy,
"You've found happ-ness, haven't

tested vigorously, "I ain't found it.

Our Country Right or Wrong
LEGION lk'GES STRENGTH IN AIR
The American Legion, long an advocate and
supporter of sound programs which concern
our national defense, has launched an air power
program which deserves the attention and co-
operation of everyone interested in the secur-
ity of our country.
Capt. Eddie Rickenbacker, in a recent ad-
dress, has this to say on the matter, and we
know of no one better informed:
"In these days of international unrest it
would be well for us to give serious thought
to the present state of our armed forces, par-
tic'ularly our air services. Not so long ago, two
years ago. in fact, the United States was the
world's leading airpower. Now we have fallen
to second or third place. We are told by our
military leaders that unless steps are taken im-
mediately to rectify that, we will be unable to
defend our country in case of war. We know
what an important part air. power played in
the recent conflict, and we know that it was
our superior air strength that turned the tide
in the final days of World War II. Yet we are
now letting that air power disappear down
"Even after lasting peace is established, Am-
erican air power must be our strong arm of
defense. We must safeguard America's free-
dom and world peace with adequate air power.
Such is the earnest plea of the American Le-
gion. The Legion is not fearful of an early
war; it fears only the dangerous public com-
placency which has gripped the American peo-
ple and which is reminiscent of the attitude
which prevailed prior to Pearl Harbor. We
know what that complacency cost us then. If
America maintains an aerial a?mada ready for
immediate action and in step with the latest
advances in. aeronautical engineering, its own
security can be assured. The Legion program
also calls for the maintenance of air power ai.
a level sufficient to discharge our obligations
ii maintaining world, peace.
"We hear much talk these clays of another
war. Though none of us want to be known as
warmongers, we still realize that wars are not
inevitable. Every thinking citizen should re-
alize the singular importance of air power to
our'national security in the event of another
war. There can be no defense of our homes,
except through constant preparedness in the
air. If the American people want adequate air
power for security, they alone can demand it
and get it."
And here's something for the people of Port
St. Joe to think about: With our paper mill and
our pipeline terminal, this city would probably
be in for a'bomb or two should the nation be-
come involved in another war. So take your
pen in hand and get behind the American Le-
gion in demanding from our congressman and
senators in Washington that they too, get be-
hind the Legion for a bigger and better air
IT WON'T BE LONG NOW
Eleven years-except for war-time interrup-
tions-of polishing a mirror has ended. The
mirror is that of the world's largest telescope,
which is now being installed on Palomar moun-
tain in California. The mirror has been pro-
nounced accurate within two millionths of an
inch, according to-California Institute of Tech-
nology experts, who had the job in hand. The
delicate concave glass, 200 inches in diameter,
has finally been transported from Pasadena
up to the observatory site on the mountain,
130 miles away. The move took a month.
Operated jointly by Caltech and Carnegie
Institution, Washington, D. C., the giant tele-
scope is to reveal heretofore undreamed-of
vistas and facts of the planet world out there
in infinite space. The story of the patient scien-
tific work that went on all those years in pre-
paring this mirror, is in itself a thrilling chap-
ter in mankind's history.
What would the mind of Shakepeare or of
Dante do with the heavenly visions that mir-

WE'RE GONNA VOTE REPUBLICAN
We've been a staunch Democrat for lo, these
many years, but if High I-landed Harry, who
is seeking re-election and a chance to use that
porch he's having built on the White House,
thinks he can shove down our throats that
bouquet of highminded laws regarding as-
sorted civil rights and liberties, he's greatly
mistaken. If he keeps on yawping over this,
matter' and insisting that congress pass his
pet legislation, we're gonna vote Republican.
Reason for Truman sounding off is that he's
making an election-year bid for the northern
negro vote, which of recent years has been
drifting back to the Republicans.
A young wife told a group of friends her
husband never snored before they were mar-
ried. Then she wondered why they all smiled.

2-Wheel-Drive for the Highway
The Universal "Jeep's" wide speed-range on'hard
roads saves valuable working time and its 4-wheel-
drive pulling power for slippery roads and steep grades
makes it the ideal farm tow-truck. It gives economical,
satisfactory service, whether hauling hay to the next
county or taking livestock to m.narket. It's a handy pick-
up, too-carries 1200 lbs.
Our wife gave us one of those
neiw-fangled' wrist watches for our
'birthday on February 4. It's a self-
*inding critter, waterproof, shodk-
proof, non-magnetic .and gosh only
knows what else. Probably could be
educated to milk the family cow.

gadget before, because we've been

Th., state election laiw.s say that
a candidate can't give out anything
of value while campaigning for
votes, such as cheap cigars (and

Woman's Plea Saves Masher
From Digging Up $25 Fine
MILWAUKEE, WIS. It almost
cost Wenceslaus Blaha $25 to learn
not to invite a lady for a ride unless
Mrs. Marcella Breitzman, 35.
testified in court that Blaha tried to
pick her up. When Judge Harvey
L. Neelen imposed a $25 fine, Mrs
"Go easy on him, judge. Lots of
men try to pick me up. I think he's
learned his lesson. Besides, he's got
a wife and four children."
Blaha commented that Mrs.
Breitzman had looked familiar
and he was only trying to be friend-
ly. He added that he had told his
wife about the incident.
The judge rescinded the file.
Robber Finds Policemen
Are Not Good Targets
NEW YORK. As Jerry Sulli.
van and Andrew Langert stepped-
from their automobile, a man ap
preached and asked for a cigaret.
Sullivan obliged, even lighting the
cigaret for him. The man pulled a
pistol from his shirt and jammed it
against Sullivan's stomach. Langert
whirled, knocked him down with a
quick blow, between the eyes and
took the pistol.
The man was identified as Mike
Gill, 36, and was charged with fel-
onious assault and illegal possession
of a pistol.
The men he tried to hold up are
New York City detectives.
