Our Country Right or Wrong
SOMETHING OUGHT TO BE DONE
We don't know about the rest of you people,
but the editor of The Star has found it extremely
difficult to enter Reid Avenue in a car from some
of the side streets without being in danger of
getting whopped by a car proceeding down the
main drag due to the fact that angle parking of
cars right up to the corner makes it impossible
to see in either direction.
We suggest either traffic lights at the inter-
sections of Fourth, Third and Second Streets
with Reid Avenue or prohibit parking right up
to the corners as at present.
True, no accidents have yet occurred at these
almost blind intersections, but it's our guess that
there soon will be some.
Since the city probably has no money to in-
stall traffic lights, we suggest that one parking
space be eliminated at each corner.
And while we're on this subject, another bad
intersection is at Third Street and Long Avenue.
Despite. the fact that "Stop" signs are placed on
Third Street at this -point, Ye Ed has avoided
collisions by a narrow margin several times while
coming up Williams Avenue due to the fact that
motorists pay no heed to the stop signs. And"
we're not the only ones, because from the loca-
tion of The Star office near this intersection we
continually hear the squeal of tires as some mo-
torist slams on his brakes at the corner to pre-
.vent a crash. Personally, while Williams Ave-
nue is supposedly a "through" thoroughfare, we
always slow down or come to a stop before at-
tempting to enter or cross Third Street.
LET'S HAUL BACK ON THE REINS
During the current session, congress should
thoroughly examine the problem of price, and
other controls-and also examine with a critical
eye the policies and philosophies which have
been established by the Office of Price Stabili-
OPS has saddled producers and distributors
with a tremendous and costly burden of red tape,
and right here in Port St. Joe some of the con-
flicting orders have driven business men to the
verge of insanity; in fact, one man sold out his
business to get away from the red tape involved.
And not only our local business men, but top-
flight lawyers, economists and authorities on
manufacturing, farming and retailing all over the
nation have been driven to the brink of utter
As far as we can see, the argument that OPS
has prevented still more inflation is a lot of ma-
larky. Prices have been held down for the simple
reason that producers and distributors compete
with each other,- and the guy offering the best
value gets the business.
OPS, at times, has seemed bent on a revolu-
tionary policy of "profit control," as witness the
fact that recently it wanted to force retailers to
absorb cost increases which were completely
beyond their control. Only action by congress
It's time we really put-a bit in OPS' mouth-
and hauled back hard on the reins.
We read a lot these days about government on
the different levels-government on the state
level, government on the federal level. Every
day there is more evidence of what a lot of peo-
ple have suspected all along-that the federal
government isn't even on the level.-Columbus

"We're really sold on Dodge for all-'round economy

How you, too, can reduce
Shau!ing costs on your job
Here's a sure way to cut hauling costs on your
job. Get a truck that gives you more mileage on
gas and oil that costs less for upkeep that
carries mnr-e payload. A truck like that will really
save you money!
..Owners of Dodge "Job-Rated" trucks enjoy ihe
outstanding economy cf trucks that are "Job'

Come in today for the complete economy story.
Let us show you how a Dodge "Job-Rated" truck
-, will cut your hauling costs.
Reduce costs with economical power-Dodge
truck engines have four rings per piston, light-
weight aluminum pistons, compression ratios as
high as 7.0 to 1, and other economy values.
Reduce costs with low upkeep-You get such
money-saving advantages as chrome-plated top
f piston rings, exhaust valve seat inserts, positive-
pressure lubrication, and many others.
Reduce costs with bigger payloads-Because a
