Subscriptions Must

Be Paid In Advance

The Star is endeavoring to comply with the request
of the United States government to conserve news-
print, and in order to do so, we are holding our
present subscription list to the number of papers
distributed on January 1, 1943. This means that the
only way we can put 6n new subscribers is by cut-
ting off those old subscribers who have failed to re-
new their subscriptions within two weeks after
being notified.
The postoffice department has always required that
subscriptions be paid in advance, but it has been our
habit in the past to carry subscribers whom we knew
would eventually pay up. This we can no
longer do and still give a "break" to new subscribers.

During the past month we have cut off 57 sub-
scribers who were in .arrears. Twelve of these
-have come in and renewed their subscriptions, and
the names of 21 new subscribers have beer. added to
our mailing list during that period. We can still
place-24 new subscribers (or old subscribers who de-
sire to renew their subscirptions) on our mailing list.

"Star Spangled Rhythm," PlayTng
At Port Sunday and Monday,

If ever there was a picture to
make every movie fan happy, it's
Paramount's unparalleled, musical
comedy, "Star Spangled Rhythm,"
playing at the, Port theater Sun-

everything imaginable in the way
of entertainment and just about
everyone on the Paramount lot. It
is without doubt the best and big-

Any film which utilizes the di-
versified talents of more than 40
stars, giving them all a chance to
strut their stuff and making that
stuff an integral part of the story,
really has something! And that
is exactly what "Star Spangled
Rhythm" does.
Among the 40 stars you'll find
Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Fred Mac-
Murray, Franchot Tone, Ray Mill-
and, Victor Moore-, Dorothy La-
mour,' Paulette Goddard, Vera
'Zorina, 1i-ary Martin, Betty Hinut-

Veronica Lake, Alan Ladd, Wil-
liam Bendix, Rochester, Macdonala
iCarey, Jerry Colonna, and more,
and more!!
.Don't get the idea that "Star
'Spangled Rhythm" is just a revue
--it isn't. It tells the story of Vic-
tor Moore, Paramount studio gate-
man, who has deceived, his sailor
-son, Eddie. Bracken, into believing
-that he runs the studio. When Ed-
d.ie shows up at the studio with a
-group of friends, something dras-
tic has to be done, and Moore and
Betty Hutton, his switchboard op-
erator friend, do it. Before very
long, every one of the stars' is
-helping them do it, and it all adds
up to really hilarious fun.
All the stars perform against a
background of music, dancing and
comedy, making ".Star4S.panglea

Our Country t"., Right or Wrong

We on the home front face one of the most
personal challenges of this war to date. That
challenge is whether or not we are willing to
sacrifice to a sufficient extent to lend our
government -thirteen billion dollars within the
next few weeks.
To do the job, you and'I, and everyone we
know, are going to have to dig down in our
sock-to dig out some of those dollars we
have salted away for a rainy day-as well as
too take a good hunk out of this month's pay
check or other source of income.
This is ,a job that has to be done. Sure, we
on the home front are feeling the pinch of
war-if you want to call it that. We have
gasoline rationing, food rationing, higher
taxes, and a lot of other little discomforts.
But they are nothing compared with the
agonies faced daily by our men-men from
Gulf county among them-out there on the
fighting fronts of the world.
Yes, we know that this constant demand
for more money out of our pockets and out
of .our pay checks-an increasing amount
each rionth-is monotonous. But so is sitting
in a fox-hole or lying in a slit-trench day af-
*ter day, slogging- through the hell of a hu-
mid jungle or that of Sahara sand. Your
editor knows what it is like, although his ex-
perience was more with mud, snow and rain,
and he feels that no matter how much we
do here at home, it will not be enough when
we think of what our men are going through.
Our sons, friends, brothers, husbands and
others we know are doing that for us. They
are facing something more terrible than cut-
ting down on a few things that we once
thought were essentials to the American stan-
dard of living in order to do it, too. As Sec-
retary Morgetnhau has said: "Shall we be
more tender with our dollars than with the
lives of our sons?"
This Second War Loan now under way is
an order to the home front to go on a new
offensive. Your dollars are the weapons in
this attack. They will make possible the pass-
ing of the ammunition to those boys of ours
up there in the front lines. To win this war
is going to cost more and more money-and
more and more lives. But the price of free-
dom. is high-has always been high. We can
not, we dare not let our fighting men down.
You can't let George do this for you. You
must pitch in with your dollars. Just keep in
mind those boys in the front lines. They give
their lives-you lend your money!
Don't wait for someone to come around
and ask you to do it. Do' it today-and do it
until you feel worthy of them-it's a personal
challenge to you!

Wonder what our men living in deserts
and jungles, battling night and day, think
when they get reports of congressmen fight-
ing for their blocs, playing politics as usuil,
while they risk their lives to save the kind of
government this kind of congressman makes?

The little things may not matter so much
---but they can make plenty of racket.

Millions of Americans are doing only half-
hearted fighting in the nation's greatest and
most important war. They have only one eye
on the flag, and the, other eye-the best one
-is on the pocketbook. They attempt to ac-
complish that impossible feat of eating their
cake and having it, too, as they undertake a
Victory March down Easy -Street.
The curse of complacency, unconcern, over-
confidence, greed, selfishness and partisan
politics that is rampant all the way from
Washington to Podunk, is condemning our
country to a long war that will exact tre-
mendous, shocking cost in lives, suffering,
sorrow, sacrifice, material and money.
While American soldiers, marines and air-
men fight, suffer and die in foreign lands to
defend the American way of life, these sel-
fish citizens continue to "get theirs while the
getting is good." While the guns of a thou-
sand warships roar their defiance of the Axis
threat either to rule or destroy and sailors
die, these "let George do it" citizens go their
selfish way with a "So what!" attitude. The
only time they evidence any interest in this
life and death struggle is when something
happens to interfere slightly with their pleas-
ures, conveniences, business, job or everyday
Most of us, it seems, have yet to learn that
the road to victory is a tortuous one that
leads through a hell of blood, sweat and tears.
To travel it successfully, we must keep
BOTH eyes open on the flag as it leads to
war. Our country must be the master, for we
can have but one master in this crisis if we
are not to have a foreign master thrust upon
us. Therefore, we must rid ourselves of such
masters as greed, labor dictatorships, busi-
ness-as-usual, dislike and distrust of Britain
and Russia, New Deal and anti-New Deal
partisanship, and class prejudices. There must

The Florida National Bank of Jacksonville
has been running some striking newspaper
advertisements on the necessity for changing
the federal income tax laws to meet present-
day needs of the taxpayers. One of its recent
advertisements said:
"Remember how a few years ago the gov-
ernment solemnly talked about 'Freedom
from debt freedom from want free-
dom from fear, etc.?'
"The 'Freedoms' theory is a great one-but
why doesn't Uncle Sam practice it with in-
come taxes? Instead of freeing his taxpayers
from debt and fear, the present income tax
system perpetuates a peculiar type of peon-
age because the taxpayer is never out of debt.'
"Last year's income taxes hang around his
neck like a millstone. Let's adopt the pay-as-
you-go plan now and make the 'Freedoms'
an actuality rather than a pretty theory."

Lewiston, Idaho, banned slot and pinball
machines, and Citizen Ed Klonick told re-
porters the town might as well be folded up
in a tent and given back to the'Indians. Pretty
soon he got a letter from a Nez Perce In-
dian: "We don't want it. You just fold it up
and keep it."

A married man living with his wife all the
time; gets an income tax exemption of $600,
while a single man gets $500. A difference of
$100 for living with a wife. There ought to
be a new setup. Anyobody ought to know it s
worth more than $100 to live with some
wives.-Abbeville (Ga.) Chronicle.

It is rumored that there will soon be a 10
per cent rise in liquor prices. It's beginning
to look like those who indulge will have to go
to the bank for a loan when they want to
purchase a pint or two.

Endowed Inertia
Approximately 2,000,000 men have
left the farms of the United States
to enter war and war industries
since the Pearl Harbor raid. The
only thing that can replace the con-
sequent shortage of manpower is
power equipment. This statement
was madd in middle January by
Rep.- Leslie C. Arends of Illinois on
the floor of the House of Repre-
sentatives in Washington. The short-
age of farm machinery is well
known to every farmer.
On a farm regularly using horses,
ene man might do nearly two men's
work with a tractor, but the few new
tractors being built will never re-
place the worn-out tractors this
year, not to mention farm teams.
Farm hands are being imported to
the United States from Latin Amer-
ica. Every farm worker is a real
help but not all' imported laborers
are suitable for all kinds of farm
Busy Keeping Idle
Nothing seems more apparent to
a serious observer than that liter-
ally thousands of government em-
ployees in admittedly essential in-
dustries are having a hard time try-
ing to justify the existence of their
highfalutin jobs. Read this recent
utterance by Rel. Forest A. Har-
ness of Indiana on the floor of the
"There is hardly a Federal agen-
cy, emergency or regular, where the
pruning knife cannot be used to
great advantage We have one
civilian employee for every three
men in fighting uniform. I am
sure we can weed out upward- of a
million Federal Employees who can
go into the essential private fields
now crying for help."
An enterprising planner in the Na-
tional Capital recently got up some
cardboard 'signs to be used in over-
crowded rooming houses for the pro-
tection of night workers who sleep
*inh'ddtffie. The sign read:
"Qfiiet Pledse-A war worker
is-resting here."
But the sigfis',found an unexpected
use. Just for lhorsegplay, some jok-
er took 'the signs 'to certain big al-
phabetical agenciegad posed them
around'on de9'7o f1irbeaucrhts who
seemed to have nothing to do. Ban-
ter on this subject 'goes on in Wash-
ington endlessly. Jtst the same, it
is a vitally serious matter.
There is a government bureau in
Washington whose job it is to select
occasionally some item of food that
appears to bean especially good bar-
gain anrd recommend its immedi-
ate use by housewives. The selec-
tion of' any product implies that its
supply exceeds the demand, that the
price is right and that eating it up
is a *patriotic' act.
There is'another bureau in Wash-
ington wh6se duty it is to keep a
Idok-out for'fdod scarcity. It pays
attention to specific items in which
a shortage seems to be developing
and urges that farmers increase
their production of such things to

improve -their profit per acre, also
as an act of patriotism.
Dry Edible Beans
The whole thing looks pretty good
on paper bt:? in practice (to coin a
phrase) it shows human fallibility.
For instance, on January 16 news-
papers announced a new "Victory
Food Special" to American house-
wives, namely, dry edible beans.
The hint was broad-too many beans
on hand. Specialists wrote blurbs
of praise about the food value of
beans. Experts in cooking published
formulas for making beans taste
good. Wives and mothers, bent on
service to home and country, sallied
forth to buy beans.
The next day, January 17, an offi-
cial press release by the U. S. De-
partment of Agriculture began urg-
ing farmers far and near to increase
their acreage of dry edible beans;
500,000 acres more this year than
last, a gain of about 17.5 per cent
from 2.8 million to 3.3 million acres.
A bonus per acre to farmers plant-
ing above a certain minimum was
announced. At the same time a 25c
increase in the "support price" was
proclaimed for new No. 1 beans at
country points.
Not Hard to Keep
This is a sample of planned econ-
omy. One planner sees a shortage
coming, another one sees a surplus.
If beans were things that would not
keep, like bananas or cantaloupes,
you could admit that the planners,
after all, might be seeing eye-to-eye.
But beans will keep indefinitely in
a clean dry place. If there is to be
a shortage; if the Army is going to
need beans in a few weeks to win
the war, there is no point to choking
the immediately available supply
down the necks of the civilian popu-
This is not a preachment against
beans. They are good food. I am
offering no protest against setting
up inducements and making- arbi-
trary price bids to stimulate pro-
duction of any military necessity.
My protest is only against bun-
combe. A Washington correspond-
ent I know, remarked bitterly, "It
looks like the planners will have to
have a co-ordnator to keep them
from playing both ends against the

Furthermoer, according to Com-
missioner Sullivan, one of /hese

that "the air of Port St. Joe

ama City from Texas, and that hs

When Chief of Police Marvin 0.
Freeman learned that Hudson had
been dismissed he immediately re-
signed his position, stating, ac-
cording to witnesses, that "if sol-
diers, sailors or marines are al-
lowedi to come in here and beat up
my police officers and the city re-
fuses to back up these officer
when .they endeavor to enforce the
laws or protect themselves from
bodily harm, then I feel that I am
'a man without a country', and am
handing in my resignation."
As a result of this series of in-
cidents, a special meeting of the,
board of city commissioners was
held Tuesday night and, the entire
matter threshed out by the., com-
Commissioner Sullivan, at the
meeting, outlined. -the matter as seT
forth above *and made the state-
ment that he and Mr. Conklin had
deemed it necessary to ask for
Hudson's badge in the interest of
harmony and co-operation with the
government authorities.
Mayor Sharit took the stand that
Hudson should not have been dis-
missed, stating: "These men off
'the ships do, or attempt to do,
whatever they like, without any
consideartion for our community
while they are here. These men
particularly, Ibeing visitors, should
be on their good, behavior while
here instead of getting drunk and
raising sand.
"I d6n't uphold these happenings
but I dbn't blame Mr. Hudson for
acting as he did as, according to
his statement, he was being stran-
gled by one man and another wag
standing by with a stick of wood
waiting for a chance to use it. I
also feel that the sailor is better
off with a flesh wound in his side,
rather than if he had killed Mt
Hudson and then been caught and
electrocuted for.the death of a po-
lice officer.
"I feel that we should give our
officers the complete backing and
-support of the city in carrying out
-their duties.
"I further believe that Mr. Free-
-man should not have quit his post
when Mr. Hudson was suspended.
but should have been more than
,ever on the jodb during this time.

.very time someone turns in a
complaint, concluded the mayor,
"we won't be able to keep a police
force I feel that, with no other
officers oil tie job or available,
.hat tue city would be making a
mistake in letting Mr. Hudson go,
and I move that he be reinstated
subject to dismissal at the will of
l.e commission."
"I don't believe in having the
i.my or navy or any other outside
;roups coming in here and telling
us how to run our city," said Com-
nissioner Sullivan, "but I dio feel
-at we should try to work in har-
nony with these outside groups,
nd if they feel that closer co-op-
eration will result through the dis-
charge of Mr. Hudson, then I fa-
vor it.
"I don't think it fair to Mr. Hud-
son or to the city to reinstate him
as the outsiders who come here
vill continue to have trouble with,
him. I think highly of Mr. Hudson
md admire him, but i have but
one duty, and. that is to see that
the best interests of the city of
Port St. Joe are served," concluded,
Mr. Sullivan.
"Allow me to suggest," said Mr.
Sharit, "that the manager of the
port at Panama City be invited
'mire to talk the matter over with
is at luncheon. ''m going to write
;im, asking him to eat with us and
also ask him to come here and ex-
plain just what he means by say-
ing that 'Port St. Joe stinks'."
Mr. Conklin interrupted at this
point, saying: "I suggest that Mr.
Hudson be reinstated until after
the meeting with the port manager
Tuesday, in order that the city
have police protection during the
interim, since we have been un-
able to secure men to serve. This
doesn't mean that I am altering
my decision as to suspending Mr.
Hudson. unless it can b.e pointed
out to me that I am unalterably
wrong, but in the interest of pub-
lic safety and welfare I will agree,
to his reinstatement."

to make a statement, said, in part:
