closing down of the St. Joe Paper

pany there has been continual
strife and turmoil among the men

have not taken :an interest in the
civic welfare of our city, all be-
'cause they. knew not whefi, with-
out notice, they would be released
without plausible reason.
In the past few months the labor
unions Ihdve been able to prevent
this to a certain'xtet' B"ut d1ts-

have been committed against the
union members. Some workers
havebeen subjected to continual
oppression 'from their foremen,

fut promotions they had worked
for faithfully In *months past,
others have been promoted with
the threat that the first' mistake
they made would be their last, and
open attempts have been made to
create friction between the' local
labor organizations. These condi-
tions have caused many good men
to quit the employment of the
company because they -would
rather have the uncertainty of not
getting another job than to endure
the strife and discrimination com-
mitted against them.
The committees have in the past
been able to adjust some of these

In an interview Wednesday with
Edward Ball, president'of the pW

formed the publisher of The Star
that they could not dispense with

since the mill opened without giv-

Mussolini has finally quit walking the

pect to see the remainder of Europe dragged
into the blazing .inferno o.f war.
And we personally are advising that great-
body up in Washington to stop quibbling and
do something drastic in the way of preparing
this country in a defensive way. We've been
operating for such a long period on a peace
economy program that to change military
economy will involve readjustmentsts which
apparently few as yet thoroughly understand
but .which are obvious to any who have
,studied the European situation over the past
When the Nazis came to power in post-war
Germany the slogan was "Guns, not butter."
The result of the ruthless application of that
slogan was a steadily declining standard of
living' nd 'a serious decline in the general
standard of public health. More and more ot
the national -income went for state purposes
-less and less was left in the hands of the
people. To a lesser extent, all the European
nations, which have been on a war footing
for many years, have undergone the same ex-
perience. And now it loqks as if we are to
undergo it, too, although we will not feel it
as drastically as in European countries, foi
we are a far richer country, possessed of re-
sources which no European power can equal.
There is no question of devoting sixty per
cent of our national income (which is the pro-
portion being spent in Germany) for military
purposes. But it does mean that all factors in
our life here in Port St. Joe and all over the
notion will be called upon to.make serious sac-
rifices to the end that we be made as secure
as possible from successful invasion. It means
that we will have fewer luxuries, fewer dol-
lars to spend as individuals, in order that we
may have more airplanes, tanks, battleships
and the other implements of defense.
And we shouldn't kick over this, for it will
be far better than possibly being ground un-
der the iron heel of an invading army;,having
our young men shot down by the thousands
in defense of our land and possibly eventually
paying billions in tribute.
The government, industry and labor will
have to co-operate toward the end of produc-
tive efficiency. The American people must
be willing to make the necessary sacrifices
for a non-political defense program that will
achieve results with a minimum waste of time
There is less and less talk of Amercia go-
ing to war abroad-we have our hands full

are moving toward a war footing. Almost

tively few as yet know what it involves.

SHUT-DOWN VITAL TO ALL
The shut-down of the St. Joe Paper' com-
pany mill is something that is vitally import.
ant to' every resident of Port St. Joe and
the surrounding district. Closing of the mill
cuts off the large payroll that is the back-
bone of trade in the city and it also throws
out of employment hundreds of men in the
woods who have been supplying logs to keep
the mill wheels turning.
The editor of The Star is in sympathy with
the mill workers for he has been out on strike
at times and has also seen the results ot
strikes in the"shipping,and automobile indus-
tries and the hardships worked not only on
the workers, but on plant owners and the
We can also see the side of the owners of
the paper mill and can understand the stand
they are taking.
Both sides are suffering a loss as long as
the mill is closed down, and the residents of
.the- city are also suffering a loss. We trust
that 'the dispute will soon: be-settled to the
best interest of all concerned, and in an amic-
! able manner, and that the wheels of the huge
plant will again turn :and 'i.ictinue to turn
without interruption inthe future.
TIME TO LAUGH OUT
There is sweet momentary surcease from
the harrowing narrative of war in a perusal ol-
the "goofier" happenings of the week in our
own American scene. For instance,' furrowed
brows should smooth a trifle, and laugh lines
around eyes crinkle at reports of such recent
intriguing occurrences as these: Atlantic City,
N. J., has instituted hostesses on street cars
and some San Jose, Calif., co-eds formed a
brigade to bring down parachutists with bows
and arrows. "No Accident Week," in Finney
County, Kansas, started off with two auto
accidents and a Washington, Ga., paper
came out without a fifth column. 'The census
takers. disclosed that in Arizona the'"vanish-
ing American" has increased by 10, per cent in
the last 10 years and Postmaster General
Farley promised to get out a postage stamp
honoring spinsters. In New London, Conn., a
man ate at one sitting two bowls of soup,
three portions of spaghetti and meat balls, a
roast chicken and eight roast beef dinners.
And a Murry, Utah, justice of the peace dis-
covered that his job had been abolished 33
years ago-15 years before he took office.
Also, a Pueblo, Colo., editor snapped his jaw
over the war news so hard that he broke a
tooth. For the week just ended, that was all.
Now, after this brief time-out for mirthful,
blessed relaxation, we can go back to the
nerve-wracking, depressing business of wor-
rying about the war.-Miami Post.
PREPARE OUR YOUTH
The editor of The Star for the past twenty
years, has been a strong advocate of com-
pulsory military education for all young men
reaching the age of eighteen. We learned a
bitter lesson in 1918,when thousands of our
boys were needlessly killed because they were
unprepared for war. Many of those men would'
be alive today-had they had a year or two,
of military training and knew what it was all
While it is rather'late now to begin, we
believe that such a law should be passed by;

necessary for these young men to take'up'
arms in defense of their country, but if they
should be called upon to do so, it would be
much better tif they knew how to handle
those arms when-they"did take them up.

in the history of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to win two years in succession. Like the other
32 drivers in this year's race, Shaw rode on Firestone tires, and when he flashed across the finish
line at the end of the 500-mile grind it marked the twenty-first consecutive victory for Firestone.

incident brought to a crisis the in-
humane perpetuations instigated by
Mr. Navarre against many memn
bers of the mill personnel.
The machinists, in view of the
ftet that for every grievance
settled two more were perpetrated,
voted to ask for the resignation or
Mr. Navarre through the regular
channels of negotiation. The minor
management of the St. Joe Paper
company, evidently deciding to
handle this in their own way, de-
maanded that the union hand over
charges and written testimony or
the various workers, backing up
the charges. Since this minor com-
pany official had no voice in settl-
ing this issue, the union refuse
to give up its testimony.,
At a call meeting the machinists)
-voted- to. close operations of the
mill at 7:a. m, Saturday until some
agreement could be reached with
the company. Mr. Ezell, president
of the machinists, made a last air
peal to Mr. Ball Friday night to
enter into negotiations before the
mill went down. Mr. Ball replied
that it was not office hours ane
nothing could be done before morn-
ing. Mr. Ezell. reported back to the
men what had transpired. The
men, who have always responded
to calls to go out to the mill and
serve any hour of the day or night
In an emergency, felt Mr. Ball was
taking a very indifferent attitude
in this, an emergency of the
gravest nature. Consequently they
agreed the mill should go down as
Instead of allowing the men to
close the nIll down as ordered,
insuring protection to machinery
and removing all fire hazards, the
management rushed out and or-
dered the men to shift down and
clear out at once. This operation
began at 1:24 a. m., five and one-
half hours ahead of schedule, with-
out regard to machinery, men or

cated at Choctawhatchee National
Forest, if possible, and transfer

H. H. Saunders, on behalf of the
St. Joe Paper company, said "This
is to request that you use your
good efforts to have the state con-
servation commission take over al
the equipment and specimens that
are now on hand and transfer this
station to' Gulf county. I believe
there are any number of locations
in this county that would be ideally
suitable for this station, and the
residents of Gul,.,.county would
greatly appreciate W having it lo-
cated in this county."
W. S. Smith, publisher of The
Star, pointed out the good work in
the way of conservation and prop-
agation' of wild life that is being
done by local sportsmen and also
urged that-the propagation depot
be transferred to Gulf county.
Copies of the above let-

bringing the depot to this county.
Senator Andrews in reply stated
