when flying your kite:

1. -Don't fly kites near electric lines.
2. Dont' use wire or tinsel kitestring.,
3. Don't fly a kite with wet string; it con-

Our Country Right or Wrong
There can be no question of Japan's inten-
tion to absolutely dominate, if possible, all
of Asia and the East Pacific, and to com-
pletely drive the white races from that vast,
rich, little-developed area. For many years
Japanese foreign and military policy has been
based squarely on the principle of "Asia for
the Asiatics," and her statesmen and war
lords publicly affirm that doctrine -at every
"In addition, from recent indications, in-..
credible as it may seem, Japan also intends
to dominate and rule the world.
Basis for that belief is found in the famous
-or infamous-"Tanaka Memorial." This as-
tonishing document, so the story goes, was
conceived and prepared by Baron Giichi Tan-
aka and handed by hiri tL.: Emrperor Hirolitto
in July, 1927. The' emperor, the story con-
tinues, gave it his sal' of approval and, ever
since it. has been the official guide for Jap-
anese diplomatic, naval and military strategy.
A copy of this memorial, according t' the
accepted story, was stolen by a member ot
the Russian Cheka. When the text of the
memorial was made public, the Japanese gov-
ernment promptly branded it a forgery. But
Leon Trotsky, who was Soviet war commis-
sar at the time of the incident, insisted that
it was absolutely genuine and accurately rep-
resented Japitn's program for world conquest.
The memorial runs to some 10,000 words.
It states that Japan must first conquer Man-
churia, Inner Mongolia and other provinces
-ends which Nippon has .already achieved in
whole or in part. It states further that this
must be followed by seizure and conquest of
the Philippines, Thailand, Malaya, Singapore,
the South Sea Islands and Australia. Every-
one who has followed the news since that
fateful' December 7 of last year, knows what
Japan is doing in that direction.
These Japanes victories, it continues, will
permit the subjugation of India, and once
that is accomplished, the way will be paved
for invasion of Asia Minor and Europe. And,
says the memorial flatly, to achieve these
goals, it will be necessary to crush the United
States, and defeat Great Britain, Russia and
other Pacific and Asiatic powers.
Additional evidence of Japan's intentions
is found in a speech made some time ago by
an .admiral who is now in command of Nip-
ponese naval forces. He said that his ambi-
tion was to invade, conquer and occupy the
Pacific Coast, to drive the defending forces
back toward the Middle West, and so even-
tually dictate the terms of peace to a help-
less president in the White House at Wash-
The Japanese have obviously placed great
faith in their enemies' indolence, blindness
and pacific ways of thinking. That faith has
already paid them great dividends. They have
built up a highly efficient fifth column or-
ganization, which played a major part in the
Malaya and Singapore disasters. Experts be-'
lieve that a long-established organization ol
that kind exists in this country, and that un-
less it is destroyed we may suffer a disaster
even greater than Pearl Harbor somewhere
within our continental boundaries-probably
on the Pacific Coast, with its great plane fac-
tories, water-power plants, etc.
At any rate, all must have learned by now
the suicidal 'folly of underestimating Japan,
and of believing that we could end a Pacific
war with unqualified victory in a matter o0
weeks or months, as we were long told. The
Jap is a wily, cruel, fatalistic and intelligent
enemy. His weapons and equipment are su-
perbly well suited, from a military stand-
point, to the various.campaigns hehas undei-
taken. He has been checked only by men who
are his match in intelligence and foresighted-
ness-such as General MacArthur. Wherever
he has been opposed by armies headed by
commanders who blindly believed that he
wouldn't dare to attack them, as in Singa-
pore, he has won with relative ease and with
We know the aims of both the Japanese
and the Germans-now it is up to us to stop
them with an all-out effort or become vas-
sals of one or both of them.
Most of us have our eyes and our. interest
centered on the war in the Pacific with Japan
but we-should also bear in mind that we are
at war with Germany and Italy.
Adolf Schickelgruber (Hitler) furnished
the world with a blueprint of his plan of
world conquest. He has followed the main
outline of his schedule. For the western
hemisphere he prescribed internal strike,
rather than bombs and bullets.
He made the declaration that he would
"destroy America by setting class against
class, race against race, and creed against
creed. The soil of every country contains the
seeds of this revolution, and they can be
made to sprout by. methods of which the
Nazis have proved themselves to be the mas-
There is the warning, and it behooves
every resident of Port St. Joe and Gulf
county to check carefully on any wild rumors
they might hear, for chances are they will
find that there is no basis to them and by re-
peating them they would be playing right
into the hands of the Axis powers, whoge
policy it is to have their agents start such
rumors in an effort to demoralize the morale
of our citizens.
SOMETHING TO REMEMBER
What will happen to America after the
war is won? How will we meet our rising
government debt, change our economy back
to -a peace-time basis and continue with our
job of making America the best place in the
world in which to live?
Such problems are causing grave concern
in the minds of many Americans at the
present time. In a recent speech, Dr. Robert
G. Sproul, president of the University ol
California, pointed out some facts that should
reassure us on these points.
After the war, he said, "the land and its
resources will still be here; all of the knowl-
edge of mankind from the beginning of his-
tory to the present will still be ours. .
Such adjustments as we may have to make
in our social and economic scheme will not
destroy our democracy as long as we pre-
serve inviolate its central and fundamental
principle of respect for and recognition of
the dignity and worth of the individual."
All wealth springs from the land, and that
concept of the individual has always been
one of the foundations of our freedom-be-
cause of it we are able to work where we
please, save our money or spend it, worship
as we wish and enjoy all our other liberties.
Whatever happens in the months-or years
-to come, we must remember that and let
nothing destroy it.
Looks like in a year or so cows will no
longer be a menace on Florida highways.
When the last set of tires is worn to the
rim, the cows will have the highways all to
themselves .......... .
"Hold on there!" said I to my
daughter last -Saturday morning
when I saw her- getting out the big
yellow crock and the wooden
spoon and the butter .and sugar
prepaartory to making our Sunday
cake. "Perhaps: we'd better have
gingerbread or fruit for dessert in-
stead. You know there's a-shortage
of sugar and we've got to go

she reminded me. "No chocolate

ning. No candied, apples, with the
pork the other day, and never any
candy. Besides, they, say we'll be
allowed. 77 pounds, of sugar for
each of us this year, and that's
quite a lot."
"What do you mean 'quite a
lot'?" I asked her. "It's a lot less
than we're used to and. everybody
is warning us to be careful."
"Well, it all depends, on how
you look at it,' my philosophical
daughter, now a junior .in high
school, declared. "If you compare
it with what we used to have here
in the United States, when. the. sky
was the limit, it isn't much. But
when you compare it with what
they ate before the. war. in other
countries, we're still rolling in
"Do you happen to know how
much they did eat in these other
countries?" I asked, pinning her

when things- were still going along
in a fairly normal way, the aver-
age Frenchman ate only 55 pounds
of sugar per year, in spite of all
their wonderful little gateauss"
and fancy chocolate concoctions.
The Russians ate only 29 pounds
per person, and the Poles 28. The
Dutch, whom we've always thought
of as- living very well, ate about
64 pounds of sugar each year. In
Great Britan they had a much
sweeter lime with 109 pounds. per
person, but Australia did even bet-
ter, getting 113 pounds each. But
that was still well below -the
