Our Country y Right or Wrong
THIS WAR IS "FOR KEEPS"
At the present time there are slightly more
than 2,000,000 men in the United States army.
SThere are 1,000,000 more men in the navy,
and about 500,000 in the air force. That marks
an immense change from a few years ago,
when the army was down to around 150,000
men, and the other military brafiches were
also negligible so far as numbers are con-
.c.erned. But the change that will take place
in the future, according to current plans, will
be infinitely greater-and will have an in-
'finitely greater effect on the normal ways of
Top military men believe that the army
will have to be increased to 8,000,000 men
and perhaps still more-that the navy will
have a personnel of around 2,000,000-and
that the air force will also reach the 2,000,000
mark. In short, if this war continues, be-
tween 12,000,000 and 13,000,000 men will be
required far military service.
Not all of -these men,-by any means, will
be combat troops. A major army is a world
of its own, requiring every kind of skill, tal-
ent, craft and profession. For each man in
the fighting lines there must be several men
behind the lines in the departments of sup-
ply, communication, transport etc. The same
thing is true of the navy and air force. But
all of these men, whether they serve with
guns or with tools, will be wearing uniforms,
and all of them will be out of civilian life.
The reasons for planning so yast a military
establishment are obvious. We must figure
on a long war whose end will be the actual
land invasion of Axis countries. All hope
that will not be necessary and that Germany
and Japan will collapse. But it would be the
height of folly to plan on that. We must, in-
stead, plan on doing it the hard way.
What will be the effect of this demand for
-manpower for the military services?
First, it can be stated categorically that
every man under 40 without dependents, and
without a job which is considered absolutely
vital to the war effort, will be inducted, and
soon. 'Men who are physically unfit, of
course, will be exceptions-but men with rel-
atively minor physical disabilities will be
taken, and placed in non-combat work.
Second, congress will probably pass a mea-
sure providing for government support of
men's dependents. There will be considerable
debate over this,. and a great deal of argu-
ment concerning how much money should be
provided. But it is thought certain that a
law will eventually be approved. Then the
millions of men in the 3-A classification will
gradually be taken. The selective service
boards have recently been reclassifying men
with wives who are self-supporting, changing
them to the 1-A bracket.
Third, the registration this month of older
men (up to 64) will give the government ex-
haustive information concerning a reservoir
of manpower which is too old for actual com-
bat, but which can be called upon for other
necessary duties. These men, for example,
could be used for farm labor, and for work
in war industries. They could release younger
men for the fighting forces. If this war goes
on long enough, it is considered inevitable
that the government will decide where, when
and for how much pay you will work.
Fourth, it is a definite possibility that we
will eventually classify and conscript woman-
power. That is already being done on a vol-
unteer basis, and in time it may be done on
an enforced basis. Women can drive cars,
run elevators, serve as clerks in shops, per-
form many operations in war industry, and
do a thousand-and-one other jobs which are
now being performed by men the military
forces need and want.
What will be left for civilian production,
The answer is clear: The barest minimum
of what is needed. If this war lasts long
enough, the drain on our human resources
will be as great as in Germany, Japan, Eng-
land, or anywhere else. The home fires will
be kept burning. by women, by men who are
unfit for military service, and by old men.
Then, when the war is over; the vast job wilt
start of re-establishing life on a peacetime
basis. In the meantime, any man in good
health who is not beyond the registration age
limits, should be prepared for sudden disrup-
tion of his economic, social and domestic
life. This war is being fought "for keeps,"
and all the wealth of the nation-human and
material alike-is dedicated to winning it!
LETS :FURNISH THE TOOLS
The world-wide enthusiasm which fol-
lowed the announcement of General Mac-
Arthur's dramatic transfer to Australia, and
his assumption of supreme command of all
United Nations' air, army and naval forces in
the Pacific theater, is easily understood. He
is the war's number one hero. His achieve-
ment in the Philippines alone makes him one
of the great commanders of history.
But we must not make the mistake of
thinking that General MacArthur, brilliant
and daring as he is, will immediately turn
the scales. He cannot produce miracles. He
made that very clear on his arrival in Mel-
bourne, when he said: "Success in modern
war requires something more than courage
and willingness to die. It requires careful
preparation. This means furnishing sufficient
troops and sufficient materials to meet the
known strength of the potential enemy. No
general can make something from nothing.
My success or failure will depend primarily
upon the resources which our respective gov-
-ernments place at my disposal."
There is a challenge in that to every indus-
try, every worker, every government offi-
cial in this country, and to every citizen. For
the great bulk of the supplies of war must
come from here. Australia is a vast contin-
ent, but it has only 7,000,000 people and rela-
tively little industry. We must become the
"arsenal of democracy" in fact, not in theory.
The art of generalship is to do the most
with what one has, to gain maximum result
at minimum cost. General MacArthur has
shown that he masters that art completely.
But all his knowledge and competence will
be useless if he lacks the tools.
Let's furnish him those tools by buying
Defense Bonds and Stamps up to the limit of
our ability-and then beyond that!
With all the "Official Business" now being
handled by the postoffice department front
federal bureaus that are striving to keep
themselves alive during this all-out w'ar et-
fort, the postoffice department at the end ol
the fiscal year should show a deficit never
before equalled in history. And the sad part
of it is that all of this "Official Business"
goes into the wastebasket.
A man who is puffed up over prosperity
probably would be doubled up over adversity.
These ladies riding bikes get more coverage
from a pair of slacks than they would from
a street frock.
The story of MacArthur's voyage
from the Philippines to Australia
will be told, I believe, asi long as
men speak the English language.
Fate' itself seems to have hadi a
-hand in bringing that little con-
voy. of torpedo boats safely thru

foundly and one remembers "oldi,

Even in the newspaper account

timeless: "The sun dipped into

tous journey, "when in the deep-

Increase In Federal
Gas Tax Is of Vital
Concern to Florida
Would Destroy Tax Program and
Force Readjustment of State
And County Tax Problems
County and state revenues will
be seriously impaired and Florida
industry gravely injured, if the pro-
'posed bill doubling the present
federal gasoline tax is passed,
Florida's congressional delegation
has Ibeen advised by Harold' Co-
le, executive vice-president of
the Florida State Chamber of
Governor Holland's tax program
adopted by the last legislature is
grounded squarely on estimated.
revenue from gasoline taxes and
includes proportionate allocation
of such taxes to the counties in
repayment of funds crpended on
public roads or in payment of in.
terest and principal of outstand-
ing bonds representing such ex-
penditur.is, Colee pointed' out.
Curtailment of automobile travel
has already caused a considerable
decrease in 'gasoline tax collec-
tions, and further reductions will
destroy the governor's tax pro-
gram and force a readjustment of
statc and county tax problems at
the 1943 legisalture, Colee said.
With a state tax of seven cents
per gallon, Florida is in the top
bracket of state taxation. The ad-
dition of three cents federal tax
would reach the? point of diminish-
ing returns and close the door to
any further readjustment of state
gasoline taxes. Florida would then
be forced to resort to a tremen-
dous increase in ad valorem or to
sales taxes or' income, taxes, all
of which have been universally
The proposed doubling of the
'-federal' gasolMne tax would place
a disproportionately heavy burden
on farmers' who must haul their
produce to market, on milk men
'and other commercial truck oper-
ators, and would in effect be a
transportation tax which would be
reflected in the price of food,
colthing and other essentials, and
above all, it would further injure
the Florida tourist industry which

Hon. R. A. Green,

Dear Lex--This will acknowl-
edge your letter of March 29th in
wmnch you statc, that close friends
of yours in Gulf county have just
advised you that the supervising
torce or our companies at Port St.
JOe are supporting your opponent
for congressman-at-large. You say
yiou cannot understand this and
would like to know if there is any
reason for it.
In the first place, your state-
ment iis a great surprise to me be-
cause i is not the policy of any
of our officials to try to dictate
or control the. political activities
or the votes of our employees.
Maybe our "supervising force"
would like to know who your
"close fricn.ds in Gulf county" are
who have advised you as above.
As a matter of personal advice
to you, offered- in a friendly spirit,
I would like to tell you very defi-
nitely that all the people of Gult
county are tremendously inter-
ested in their federal government
taking over and paying them for
Lte (iulf county canal, and in the
federal government helping to
complete the hospital. I know that
a concrete interest in these proj-
ects would have more influence
upon all the, people of Gulf county
than anything any official, of any
of our companies could say or do
to our supervising force, or any
People of Gulf county are con-
scious of the; fact that you have
been a ranking member of the
rivers .and harbors committee oil
the house for many years, and by
virtue of that capacity you have
powerful influence and can help
them more than anyone; else to
realize their ambition in regard to
the Gulf county canal.
I might add that in my consid-
ered opinion the people and the
business interests of Gulf county
have contributed more' to the fed-
eral; government, and to their own
support and development, but have
gotten proportionately less from
the federal government than any
other community within my knowl-
