The important place Florida's

strengthening weaknesses known
to exist, were graphically pictured.
in an address made by J. H. Dow-
ling, chief engineer of the state
road department, at the annual
convention of the Florida Associa-
tion of Boards of County Commis-
sioners, held recently in Miami.
He also said that more than $14,-

our present systems adequate for.
normal traffic needs.
"National defense is the all-con-
suming theme in official circles, in
newspapers, magazines and on the
street," Dowling said. "We know
that we have been extremely care-
less and negligent in matters per-
taining to national defense. Now
that the. day is here when* we
must take an account of our fa-
cilities, we find ourselves woefully
lacking in even the most funda-
mental and simple matters."

President Roosevelt's action in appointing
Republicans Stimson and Knox to the vital
war and navy cabinet posts was the meatiest
"piece of domestic news in a long time. It
threw a bombshell into the Republican party,
which was gathering in Philadelphia at the
:time on the eve of its nominating convention.
There was a rumor some time back that the
'president had decided on a coalition cabinet--
but it was believed that the idea had been
dropped on the ground that big-shot Republi-
cans had refused to agree to it.
From the political point of view the ap-
.pointments were a clever bit of strategy. Mr.
'Stimson was secretary of war under Taft and
secretary of state under Hoover, and has be-
:hind him a good record of public service.
Colonel Knox has never held important public
office, but he ,was the G. O. P. vice-presiden-
tial candidate last time, and is an able news-
paper publisher. With Knox and Stimson in
these key posts it will be difficult for the
G. 0Q. P to criticize the administration to any
great extent and make the criticism stick. The
Roosevelt cabinet still has some. bad weak
spots, -but it has been greatly strengthened.
Looking at the appointments from the point
'of view of foreign policy, they square with
the president's recent position. It is obvious
that Mr. Roosevelt has been moving from a
.policy of neutrality to one of non-belliger-
ency. In other words, our position in regard
to the Allies is much,the same as was Italy's
in regard to Germany before she took the
plunge into war. Mr. Stimson has been ex-
tremely outspoken in favor of the Allied
cause, and some believe him an actual inter-
ventionist. Colonel Knox holds similar views
These appointments have already stirred up
some dissension within the Deinocratic party,
to say nothing of the Republican. The opposi-
tion comes from those who feel that the press.
ident wishes to guide us step by step into
war. That will undoubtedly form the basis
for Republican campaign, attacks on this ad-
ministration. All favor the defense program,
in general-but there is a definite cleavage
between those who insist that it must be for
defense alone, and those who believe that,
once we are ready, we must go to war in

There is plenty of criticism of the Euro-
pean democracies for what some consider
their astonishing failure to recognize in time
the fast-growing military power of the dic-
tator nations, and to prepare to meet it.
Informed commentators are now asking if
we are any wiser. We have the same chance
to prepare that England and France had a
few years ago. Will we do it, with maximum
efficiency and minimum waste-or will we
permit red tape and politics to make our de-
fense program ineffective?

Listening to a colleague talk over the loud
speaker in the house of representatives cured
a.deaf. congressman, poor fellow.-Hartford

Best simile of the week: He spent money
like the government trying to economize.

The editor was talking with a prominent
business man in Wewahitchka last week and
the matter of the recent strike at the St. Joe
Paper company mill came up.
."We sure felt that strike here in Wewa-
hitchka," he said, "and we discovered as a
result of it that about $2.50 of every $5.00
spent here in the county seat comes from the
mill in Port St. Joe. When the mill closed
down, the landowners stopped selling their
logs, the men in the woods were thrown out
of work, and the boys with trucks who were
hauling the logs to the mill just hung around
.town with their hands in their pockets. Yes,
sir, it sure hit us, and we hope that things
won't come up again that will cause your mill
to close down even for a week."
Along this same line, Louis Emirich of the
Motor Parts.store here in this city remarked
that the strike was felt in the surrounding
territory, citing as an example a small gai-
age owner at Hosford who is a steady cus-
tomer. Mr. Emrich stated that this man can-
celed a fair-sized order due to the fact that
the larger part of his work comes from the
owners of trucks hauling logs to the mill.
Undoubtedly the shutdown affected this en-
tire section, and such instances indicate how
the payroll of the local mill spreads out into
the surrounding territory, providing a liveli-
hood for thousands of people not connected
in any, way with the mill itself or its oper-

The present federal debt limit of $45,000,-
000,000 will undoubtedly be raised to around
$50,000,000;000 in order to make it possible
to provide new capital 'for the national de-
fense program, as the current peace debt is
virtually at the legal limit.
The cost of an adequate defense structure
will reach incredible totals. In addition to
raising the debt limit and taxes, it is certainly
the duty of public officials of both parties to
reduce government expenditures for other,
less essential purposes-even at the expense
of pet political projects that have swallowed
billions of the nation's wealth.
There is an inseparable relationship be-
tween national defense and national fiscal sol-
vency. Each increase in taxes or debt must
inevitably result in a steady lowering of a
nation's resources. .It is as important to learn
to save as it is to spend when national emer-
gencies demand it.
The defense program must be pushed with
all speed. Similar speed should be shown in
paring every nickel possible from the ordi-
nary federal budget in order to release every
available dollar of regular government income
for legitimate defense needs. Every con-
ceivable economy should at once be effected
so that increases in taxes and debt may be
held to the absolute minimum.
A sound fiscal policy is one of the most
vital factors in a national defense program.

Hitler may be sitting on top of the heap
right now, but history shows that all the em-
pires won by conquest in the past have in-
variably collapsed sooner or later of their owrn
weight. Conquered people are not co-opera-
tive-a tremendous part of the conqueror's
energies and resources and man power must
be given to policing them. And in time, the
conqueror grows rich and soft.

Tomorrow's world, no matter who wins the
present war, wil4 be a vastly different place
than the world of today, and the future for
all nations is far from bright.

'Babies for Sale'

Shocking Story of the "Adoption"
Racketeer On Screen At
Port Wednesday

Thousands of babies and young
children are adopted each year by
childless couples, while hundreds
of thousands of other childless
couples are rejected as unfit for
"parenthood." The ever-increasing
demand for adoptable babies has
caused to be built up around an
otherwise legitimate and .socially,
desirable cause one of the slimiest
rackets of all times-the sale or
The racket usually swings into
operation when an apparently
straightforward and respectable
nursing home is approached by
some childless couple anxious to
adopt an infant. They are told that
there is a baby available, but that
his mother refuses to part with
him except for a large sum of
money. The cunningly contriveC
'sales talk usually ends up with the
prospective parents paying the.
money demanded. Of course the
mother of the baby sees no part of
this money and, in some cases, has
even been fooled into believing

that her, child has died..
These shocking revelations form'
the basis for the sensational
screen expose fashioned by Colum-
bia in ""Babies for Sale," playing

ater. Rochelle Hudson is seen ab
a young mother, widowed and des-
titute, who is robbed of her baby

covering the racket, aids her in
recovering her child. Others in the
cast of the thrilling film include
