Paper Mill Opens

Following Strike

Belches from 255-Foot

Following a week's strike at the
St. Joe Paper company mill called
by the Machinists Union and.joined
in by the Paper Makers and Elee
Strical Workers unions, the wheels\
Sof the huge plant began turning ati
7 o'clock Saturday morning and

the large payroll, which is the
backbone of trade -in this area,
would again be forthcoming each

them voted to return -to their jobs.

Fast Action Seen

In 'Torrid Zone'

Comedy-Drama Playing at the Port
Theater Sunday-Monday
Has Three Stars

Probably the fastest, funniest
comedy-drama' that Hollywood has
giyen' out this year is "Torrid
Zone." 'Triple-starri' 'wi' James
Cagney, Ann Sheridan and Pat
O'Brien, the new picture playing
at the Port theater Sunday and
Monday rings the.bell with every
line of its swift-paced dialogue.
The triple-threat, star trio makes
a dynamic combination. Whether
Cagney is making love to Miss
Sheridan or fighting with O'Brien,
he Is indomitable. As for Miss
Sheridan, she is exuberantly lovely
whether she is cheating the na-
tives at cards, singing the tuneful
new song, "Mi Caballero" in a cafe
or using her justifiably famous
"oomph" to ensnare Cagney, or
brawling with O'Brien.
The story is laid .somewhere in
the banana belt. O'Brien, as neaa
man for a big fruit company, Is
the big shot of Puerto Aguilar ans
runs things pretty much to suit
himself. Chief thorn in his some-
what tough side is Cagney, as the
ace plantation boss who refuses to
be run.
The cast is uniformly excellent.
Supporting the three stars are
Andy Devine, who gives one of his
most inspired comedy characteriza-
tions in the role of Cagney's pal,
and Helen Vinson, who plays tne
"other woman" with devastating

The Port St. Joe Anierican Ie-
gion junior baseball team will

ball League of West Florida. Other
teams in the league are Panama
City, Apalachicola, Quincy and
Coaches for the local team are
Tom Owens and Al Schneider, and
any boys between the ages of 14
and 17 who desire to join the team
can report to these two. Uniforms
will be furnished by the Gulf

is found they'll call It Florida.

The Futility of Strikes

Reopening of the St. Joe Paper company mill after
a week's shutdown due to a strike brings rejoicing to the
hearts of every resident of Port St. Joe and the surround-
ing territory, for with the closing of the mill the payroll,
which furnishes the backbone of trade for this area, was
cut off and things looked gloomy indeed, with the possi-
bility that the mill might be closed indefinitely.
Merchants suffered because the men who work at
the mill, the landowners who sell logs to the. mill, the
men who cut the logs and the men who haul the logs to
the mill-all customers-were deprived of their income.
The men and their families suffered for the same reason
-no source of income. The Star, dependent on the mer-
chants for advertising and commercial printing, suffered,
as did every other business in the city.. The mill owners
suffered a large loss because they were unable to fill or-
ders for liner board and pulp, and they were also paying
interest on their huge investment which was standing
As we look at it, there should never have been a
shutdown of the mill. Men are supposedly reasonable
and intelligent creatures, and no matter what the prob-
lem between two men, or two groups of men, may be,
there is always a solution to the problem if the two men
or two groups can get together and discuss the matter
in a reasonable, intelligent and amicable way.
True, the unions are strong and are of vital import
to the working men. True also that the mill owners are
strong, and were. it not for them and their invested capi-
tal there would be no work for the union men. But what
is strength without wisdom? Strength is not made to
rule, but to subserve as a part of wisdom.
We sincerely hope and trust that in future when
problems arise at our mill that they can be threshed out
satisfactorily, man to man, without casting a pall of
gloom and uncertainty over the countryside.
In these times of world crisis, capital and labor
should work harmoniously together, giving and taking if
need be, for the welfare of all concerned.

Government Will

Request Made By Lewis Is

From 'present indications Gulf
county taxpayers will be compelled
to pay off the $200,000 bond issue

government take over maintenance
of the canal link and tlat the

The spoken word is given scant attention;
the printed word is thoughtfully weighed.
The spoken word barely asserts; the printed
word thoroughly convinces. The spoken word
is lost; the printed word remains.

SThe present program of the United States
for national defense envisions the largest
peace-time military expenditures in our his-
tory. Over a period of a few years spending
for defense is to be progressively increased,
and-the total will run far into the billions.
There can be no question of our need for
the world's greatest defense system. But it
will be'a disastrous mistake if we adopt a
hysterical "Never mind the cost" attitude.
Some of the billions for defense must be se-
cured by reducing or eliminating the appro-
priations for other, less important govern-
ment activities.
All the energies of this great country must
be directed towards making it secure from
invasion. To release those energies requires
rededicating this nation to the ideals envis-
ioned by the Founding Fathers.
High-sounding phrases aren't enough. Prep-
aration against the possibility of invasion is
a grim and costly business. Never in the his-
tory of our country was it so important for
co-operation on every hand. Never Was it so
important to eliminate waste in government,
in individual enterprise and in family life, in
order to perpetuate liberty and opportunity.

A little learned research by Dr. Arthur F.
McKinlay, professor of language at the Uni-
versity of California, discloses the fact that
the word "tax"-with which we are all so
familiaf-is- derived from the Latin slang
term that means "touch."
During the last 500 years of the Roman
Empire's existence, Dr. McKinlay declares,
the average Roman citizen was "touched"
pretty regularly and heavily. In fact, it go%
to resemble more of a push than a touch.
Americans can easily sympathize with the
attitude of Junious Q. Publicus back in tne
old days. Government "touching" is going
on at a great rate in this country at the
present time, and the Tax Policy League has
just come up with some disheartening fig-
Last year, the League points out, taxes col-
lected by all units of' government in the
United States raked up 20.1 per cent of all
the national income produced, which was
about 5 per cent moi-e than in 1930. Exclud-
ing, payroll taxes, here were some of the larg-
est levies going to make up a.grand total of
35.6 per cent of the total on property, 20.6
per cent on incomes, and 8.3 per cent on gas-
oline. In one way or another, we are all
Maybe the figures are boring, but paying
your increasing share of the bill is even more
And we suggest a new motto for govern-
ments afflicted with loose fiscal habits-a
motto to read something like this':
"Friends, Romans, taxpayers-hand us
your dough!"-Fort Pierce News-Tribune.

Remember those .days of deluded nobility
bf nurnose when we towed our navy out into

A town in California that counted for noth-
ing in the lives of the thousands of tourists
who passed through, solved the problem by
doing something that cost them little money.
A few of the lazier citizens laughed, but
others planted zinnia seeds in vacant lots, in
lawn beds, by the roadsides, at highway junc-
tions, in window boxes, in business block
parkways, around filling stations, before the
public buildings, at the depot-wherever they
found ground fit for flowers.
Within a few weeks the little city was
ablaze with color-glowing, living color. It
made the people who lived there feel better.
It astonished and delighted visitors. Soon
thousands of people came to visit the town,
just to see the blazing zinnias. Instead of hav-
ing motorists dash through, they had motor-
ists who drove slowly, often came to a stop,
and left many of their shining dollars in the
splace.-The Vagabond.

Don't talk to me about hard times. I was
9 born 8 miles from a railroad, 5 miles from a
School house, 9 miles from a church, 885
miles from New York, 20 yards from a wash
hole, 15 feet from a cornfield, and 8,767 miles
from Hong Kong.
Our nearest neighbors lived two miles away
and they couldn't read or write. I never saw
a. suit of underwear until I was .17 years old,
and that revelation didn't belong to anybody
in our family. The only book in the house
during my early childhood was a Bible and a
catalog somebody sent us.
There were twelve members in our family,
but, you see, we had three rooms to live In,
including a dining room, which was also the
kitchen. Everybody worked at our house. We
thought everybody else in the world had
Sgravy and bread for breakfast, liver hnd
Scracklin' hoecake for dinner, buttermilk and
corn pone for supper, 'cause that's what we
had-and liked it.
Some of us wore brogan shoes occasionally i
in the winter time. We had nice white shirts
for summer time use. We slept on straw ticks
and pillows were not thought of or required.
I didn't know that money would rattle until
I was nearly grown. Father got hold of two v
half-dollars at the same time and let us hear c
them rattle. Taxes were not higher, but g
harder to pay than now.
We owned two kerosene lamps, neither of v
which had a chimney. Our house wasn't ceiled, o
but two of our rooms had lofts in them. We c
had a glass window in our "company" room.
Our nicest piece of furniture was a home-
made rocking chair. Our beds were of the slat a
and tightrope variety. The "trundle bed" took c
care of all the young 'uns under five years of
age, and it stayed full all the time.
We went to school two or three months in
the year, but not in a bus. We attended (
church once a month, but not In a car-we r
used a two-mule wagon. We dressed up on
Sunday, but not in silks or satins. We neither
wrote letters nor received any. We made our c
own lye hominy, distilled our own lye from
our own ash-hopper. We drank sassafras tea
and never had a yearning for coffee.
We sopped our own molasses; we ate our
own meat; we considered rice a delicacy for fl
only the preacher to eat; we had heard of e
cheese, but never saw any; we knew of some c
store-bought clothes, but never hoped to wear .
any; we got a stick of candy and three raisins s
for Christmas and were happy; we loved pa p,
and ma and were never hungry, enjoyed get- tl
ting naked, didn't want much, expected noth- to
ing. And that's why our so-called hard times t
ain't' hard on me.-Collins (Miss.) Commer- C

Experts Advise Sowing

Many florists now grow asters
from seed sown in the open ground
without transplanting, claiming that
such plants will grow more vigor- T

to the check of transplanting.
SIf you are willing to wait a little
longer for flowers, and enjoy them
in the late summer and fall, this is
a good method to use. The seed
can be sown in rows in the cut-
ting or vegetable garden. Care
must be taken to sow thinly, and
when the seedlings come up, the:
must be thinned, so that plants
stand about six inches apart. Grovn
