Our Country Right or Wrong
MORE JOBS THAN TAKERS
In the past a popular saying was that the
South's "greatest export" was its people-
meaning people "going.North" for jobs. That
the time may be near when this will no longer
hold true is the hope of business and labor
alike, for job openings reported by the Florida
Industrial Commission indicate that there is
less necessity for looking elsewhere for em-
ployment than perhaps a large number of
young Floridians may realize.
At the end of April the number of unfilled
jobs listed with the commission was smaller
by several hundred than at the same time last
year; but it still meant that there were more
than 3000 openings -available for those who
would enter them.
That many of the young people now being
graduated from high schools and colleges will
be looking for jobs this summer means that
the number of opportunities may soon ne re-
duced, but in the long run, with the likelihood
of the establishment and importation of new
industries in the state, it is possible that no one
will have to cross the Florida state- line..to
avail himself of employment suited to his
capabilities and at fair compensation.
No state perhaps offers more to business and
industry than Florida-in favorable locations
for industrial enterprises, in facilities for ship-
ping to and from all parts of the country' and
the world, ,and in potential labor supply.
While all this is true in its promise for the
future, it is well to know that at the present
moment there are more chances for empoly-
ment in Florida, whatever its kind may be,.
than there have been thqse who would take
it over. '
THE THINGS THEY CAN FIND TO TAX
The city dads of Port St. Joe are continually
on the hunt for new sources of. revenue and
keep their eye peeled for possibilities. Already
the city collects taxes on cigarets, gasoline,
telephone, gas and electric bills, and theater
admissions, all ,of which brings in a sizeable
bit of revenue. But there is one thing they ap-
parently have overlooked-wooden legs.
That ain't no joke, brother, for the cities ,of
Paragould and North Little Rock, both in Ar-
kansas, have levied such a tax. It wouldn't
catch many in St. Joe. Only Frank Rowan,
Hamp Bynum and Billy Hammock (Ye Ed
doesn't wear his because it's too slow).
But there are 'till several sources yet un-
tapped, which might be considered by our city
fathers. For instance, Little Rock, Ark., has
adopted a $25 a year tax on "the sale of water-
Been in Cooper's barber shop re-
ozntly and taken a gander at the

assistant tonsorial artist? Seems
he and Georga Cooper have cooked
up some sort of helacious concoc-
tion and have 'been applying it as-
siduously to Skipper's dome. And
he is -ow proudly sporting a light,
misty fuzz on the great open spaces.
Looks like we might have had a

melon, sliced, where served on premises and
no other license is paid." Trenton, N. J., has,
slapped taxes on bagatelle tables, towel sup-
ply businesses, street pianos and organ grind-
ers. Jugglers in Hood River, Ore are required

WE'RE AGIN FEDERAL AID TO SCHOOLS
\e were talking to a local business man the
other day and the matter of federal aid for
education cro pped up. He was highly in favor
of it. and when we told him we were "agln it"
he wanted to know why.
The Star is deeply interested in the educa-
tional needs of Port St. Joe and Florida, and
always will be, but we are opposed to federal
financing of schools because it is a simple mat-
ter of arithmetic. There is one and only one
source from which the treasury of any form ot.
government receives revenue, whether it be
the city, the state or the federal treasury. Why
should we try to fool ourselves ? Why send
money to Washington to create a dozen extra
bureaus, and then allow the individual states
to receive a portion (in the majority of cases
a small portion) of the tax dollar back? There
is no such thing as the federal government fi-
nancing anything. When a state or a locality
receives a so-called "grant" from Washington
it is merely returning a part of the funds col-
lected in taxes from the citizens of the states
We don't say that Port St. Joe and Gulf
county are not doing their part for education,
for in the eleven years that we have been pub-
lishing this rag our, city and county schools
have advanced tremendously. What we wouldT
like to put over to our readers is that if they
want to improve their schools they should as-
sess themselves locally, where the dollar goes
much further, than to send it to Washington
where it costs a large part of every dollar to
administer the revenue received. We have re-
peatedlly told School Superintendennt Tommy
'Owens that we would like to see a larger mill-
age set up for our schools and that we person-
ally would be tickled to death to pay it rather
than wait on a state or federal subsidy.
Did you ever stop to think what you pay out
in the way of taxes? The figures are startling.
According to figures compiled by the United
States Bureau of Census, the average tax bur-
den per family in 1946 (it's a heluva lot higher
today) in the United States was $1,340. The
total taxes collected from local, state and fed-
eral governments amounted to $56,873,000,000,
and of this amount (77.8 per cent of the entire
total) $44,223,000,000 went to the treasury in
Washington, with only 11.4 per cent to tie
states, and the remainder locally.
These are just a few of the reasons why the
editor of The Star will continue to advocate
that the city and the county raise such sums
of money as are needed to educate the children
of this and future generations. It is a great re-
sponsibility and it must be met, but let the ob-
ligations be fulfilled by those who are supposed
lo take care of their own.
The rank and file of the American people,
regardless of the party, want as their candi-
(late an American and a liberal-a candidate
who will not bungle us into World War III.
They want a candidate who will nj: lead as
back to the dark ages, but forward to a better
and brighter future. Such a candidate :s Gen-

Early Vegetables Should
Be Sown for Late Crops
Quickest maturing vegetable is the
early radish which matures in 20 days;
and slowest are winter onions which
require 115 days.
Between these extremes are other
vegetables, which may take, 30, 40,'
60 or 80 days to reach the size and
quality which best fits them for table
In the early spring, these maturity
dates are of less significance than later.
Early varieties should always be sown
for an early harvest, but the late ones
also should be sown for fall and win-
As summer advances, however, ma-
turity dates become more important,
and before sowing any crop the gar-
dener should make sure it has time to
mature before winter sets in.
Seed catalogues usually give the
maturity date for each variety listed.
From your local weather bureau you
can ascertain the average date of the
first killing frost in your vicinity.
Compare these two, and you can eas.
ily avoid crops which have no chance
to develop fully before winter comes.
Until June 1, however, there are
few vegetables which cannot be sown
with good chances of a crop. Long
season crops are lima beans, broccoli,
cabbage, celery, collards, cucumbers,
egg plant, kale, leek, onion, parsley,
parsnips, peppers, New Zealand spin-
ach, rutabaga, salsify, squash, Swiss
chard and tomatoes. After June 15,
these may be risky.
Cauliflower and brussels sprouts are
fall crops, and seeds should always
be sown late.
There are two salad crops which
are at their best in the fall-endive
and Chinese cabbage. Chinese cab-
bage which matures in 90 days is
difficult to grow in the summer, be-
cause it runs to seed, but in the short
days of autumn, it makes beautiful,
elongated heads of crisp leaves havingI
Brussels Sprouts Give Harvest
a suggestion of cabbage flavor which
are delicious cooked or raw.
Vegetable crops which should not
be sown in June include peas, early
radishes, lettuce and spinach. All
these require cool weather, and you
may sow very early kinds in August,
so they will mature in the autumn.
Sweet corn is a crop for late sowing.
Early kinds may be put in as late as
July 1, and the finest corn is often
produced by late sown seed.
Quick maturing crops include snap
beans, beets, carrots, endive, lettuce,
kohlrabi, turnips, spinach, peas and
radishes. The later you sow, the "ear-
lier" should be the variety you sow.

The Importance of $repyA Dov
Here is the story. of a new
principle of design that has
rocked the industry and given
Hudson unique beauty not pos-
sible in any other type of car.
THE recessed floor in the new Hudson
-now widely known as the "step-
down" feature-is the talk of the auto-
mobile world. And rightly so! This inter-
esting development is the key to a new
kind of motor-car beauty never before
People everywhere are attracted by
Hudson's low, streamlined silhouette and
Only Hudson, because of its exclusive
recessed floor that you step down onto,
is Able to offer streamlined, low-built
beauty without asking you to give up
interior head room.
let's take a frank look at the motor-
car designer's problem. Since streamlin-
ing an automobile reduces available head
room for rear-seat passengers, to achieve
a low silhouette and maintain adequate
head room, both floor and seats must be
lowered to compensate for the lowered
roof. The recessed floor is a necessity.
But' it is difficult to lower floors and
seats, because in all cars, except Hudson,
they are built on top of a frame. Only
Hudson has a new, all- steel Monobilt
body-and-frame*, part of which is a
rugged base structure that permits low-
ering floors and seats down within the
frame. The sketches below illustrate this
design problem and show how Hudson's
recessed floor provides a low, stream-
lined silhouette, yet preserves head room.
The car above cannot be streainlined because the
need for head room above the rear seat (which is
built on top of a frame) makes it impossible to
lower the roof.
Of course, it is possible to adopt free-flowing
lines without recessing the floor, as sketched in
the car above, but over-all height must be raised,
and this destroys the possibility of a lowa shou-
ette, which is the mark of the modern motor car.
Here is the long, low, gracefully streamlined
Hudson-only five feet from ground to top. You
can see how the streamlined roof comes- down
sharply over the rear-seat portion of the car, as
compared to the other types of roof tines shown
in sketches to the left. But Hudson floors are
recessed down within the frame, seats are low-
ered, so you get more than ample head room.
The "step-down" principle requires years
of engineering work, the development of
new production techniques and equip-
ment, and millions of dollars of highly
specialized new plant investment. Per-
haps this explains why Hudson alone
offers this vital new design principle
You'll probably .expect the motor car
that is the talk of the nation to offer you
even more than beauty and comfort. And
it does! Your nearby Hudson dealer will
show you The Importance of "Stepping
Down"-also its results in riding and
driving ease, performance and safety.

A tagging project designed to de-
termine the percentage of bluegill

the symbol "FLA" or "RTN FLA
They Come to Life
A true- hibernating animal will
awaken when the temperature
reaches 60 degrees. It is the tem-
perature rather than the season
that brings these animals out of hi-
bernation. At first, the animal trem-
bles violently to warm its body and
bring it to normal temperature.
