Sitting In With -
By RUSSELL KAY
(Florida Press Association) --
Legislators and bureaucrats
juggled figures last week with
the dexterity ofa 'Ringling troupe
as welfare board's Hiatt fought
desperately to establish proof of
the economical administration of
his department, claiming oper-
ating costs of less than 8 per
cent. Senator S-heldon took his
turn with the mathematical In-
dian clubs to prove such costs
were nearer 20 per cent. The
Shands committee settled for
approximately 12y2 ,per cent.
Taxpayers learned that it cost
around $1 to give away $4 of
state money, and began to un-
derstand why the aged and the
blind and the orphans go with-
out shoes while the officials
charged with "looking -after"
them ride in shiny automobiles
and dine on planked steaks. To
correct the 'evil, Shelddn would
limit state welfare board costs
to a maximum of 5 per cent, the
same as does the federal gov-
ernment, claiming such action
would mean"a million or more a
year for the old folks, dependent
children and the blind. Shands,
whose'committee has been stalk-
ing state boards, bureaus and
commissions like ; troop of Com-
mandos, is reported. Just about
ready to strike. 'Grim -faced
house committees have been
chewing over the financial cud
until they have developed a
Masty case of indigestion. Tax-
payers, mildly interested, are
watching tlhe billowing smoke
and wondering whether or not
there really is a fire.
It appears that Florida legisla-
tors are just about fed up with
federal bureaucrats and lawyer-
crats as are the people, for twice
this week-they slapped down the
ears of high-poweired Washington
lobbyists sent down here by fed-
eral agencies to crack whips and
hold hoops for lawmakers, to jump
through. An attempt in the house

Dollars and Cents
Ceiling Prices On
Foods Will Be Set
Retail Prices On .Meats Will Be-,
come Effective Monday; Can-
ning Sugar Available
Taking its first major step since
the president's order to "hold the
line," the OPA has begun estab-
lishing specific dollars and cents
ceiling prices on food items for
stores in given communities, ac-
cording to an announcement yes-
terday by C. G. Costin, chairman
of the Gulf County War Price and
"Prices are being set on a com-
munity basis," Costin said. "Eaca
community, under present plans,
ultimately will have its own. set o0
specific maximum prices, known to
the buyer andm seller alike. The
first of these prices went into ef-
fect in 15 southeastern cities, last
Monday morning. Included were
Jacksonville and Tampa.
"By translating ceiling prices
into i specific dollars, and cents
maximums which every housewife
will know, we are placing in eaca
housewife's hands the weapon to
hold the price line," Cosmtin went
o.n. "I want to make it very clear
that the new community prices
represent the highest price that
any store in,a given locality can
charge for an item. Any store may
charge a lower price," he declared.
,Specific dollars and. cents prices
for retail cuts-of rbef, veal, lamb
and mutton, postponed for further
review last month, will become ef-
fective next Monday, May 17, Mr.
Costing also stated.
i Originally scheduled to go into
,effect April 15, the prices estab-
t listed at that time were withheld
for further consideration in the
light of the president's "hold the
iine" order. The revised' schedule
is expected to show prices lower
by from one to three cents than
those set in the original pricing
Announcementf'of the procedure
by whish housewives will obtain
sugar for home canning of this
year's fruit crop was also made
flwy Mr. Costin. As previously an-
nounced in The Star, sugar will be
allotted on the same basis as last
year-that is, one pound for each
four quarts (or eight pounds) ot
finished fruit, and by essentially
the same procedure, a written ap-
plication to the local board'.
A top limit of 25 pounds of su-
gar per person per yea' is estab-
lished in the new regulations. Mr.
Costin emphasized, however, that
the 25-pound figure is a maximum,
to be granted only in the relatively
few cases where a large amount
of fruit will be put up.

Our Country Right or Wrong
ARE WE LETHARGIC OR-
For a month past the editor of The Star,
through front page stories, the editorial col-
umns and by contacts on the streets, has been
endeavoring to create interest in the idea of
post-war development of trade and industry
for Port St. Joe and Gulf county.,.So far his
efforts seem to be a total loss, though a seed
may have been planted here and there which
might blossom forth at a. later date-we hope.
We've stopped a dozen of our leading citi-
zens and asked them what they thought
about the matter. The general reply has
been: "Yup, yup. A splendid idea. Who's go-
ing to go about doing it?"
They apparently want to sit back and "let
George do it," not realizing that if anything
is to be done about it we've all got to pitch
in and do' our bit.
Things like this cause us to wonder some-
times whether the people here are just na-
turally lethargic or whether they're like the
farmer's old mule. A man wanted to buy the
mule and went out to the pasture to look at
it. The farmer said it was in fine condition,
but as he spoke. the mule walked head-on into
a tree. "Why, the animal's blind," said the
prospective buyer. "Nope," replied the farmer,
"He ain't blind-he just don't give a damn."
So far, in Port St. Joe, we haven't ruh
across any black markets, but they are in op-
eration elsewhere and the number is growing.
Black markets are operated and patronized
by dishonest consumers and dealers who are
willing to rob our armed forces and their
neighbors. There are four current kinds:
The overcharge black market which
sells at prices above legal ceilings.
The insanitary black market which
sells meat which has not been properly
inspected for disease or graded for qual-
ity. False grading above actual quality
is also a device for violating price ceilings.
The over-quota black market which
kills more livestock than department of
agriculture quotas permit. This, obvi-
ously, diverts to black markets customers
meat intended for our armed forces and
The ration-free black market-which
(always for a premium) will sell meat,
gasoline and groceries without collecting
There's only one reason for these markets,
and we might as well place the final blame
where it belongs-on consumers who think
so little of their country that they place their
personal wishes above supplies for our armed
forces and war workers.
Now we know the war can't last much
longer. The Japs, reopening the coca-cola
factory in Batavia, have changed the name
of the drink it will produce to "Sumarisi."
They can't do anything, like that to coca-cola
and get away with it.-Mclntosh (Ga.) News.
Keep smiling-and buy War Bonds!
The. enthusiasm manifested in the Civilian
Defense Corps, the Air Warning Service and
the Red Cross surgical dressing room when
these activities were first organized has
waned to such an extent that all three are
practice ly defunct as far as we can see.
True, there are the usual "faithful few"
showing up at the A. W. S. observation towei
and the Red Cross room, but these few who
accept responsibility -in the proper manner
cannot carry on work which is supposed to
be done by fifty or a hundred persons.
For the benefit of those ladies who have
worked at the surgical dressing room in the
past or who intended to do some work there
but never quite got around to it, we would
like to point out that our boys are still battl-
ing the enemy all over the world and thou-
sands of them are getting wounded and need-
ing surgical dressings. Maybe your son or
husband isn't on combat duty right now, but
he probably will be before this is over-and
one of them may be brought to a field hos-
pital badly wounded and lack for surgical
care because of a shortage of dressings that
might have been at hand had you and others
done your bit in advance.
You men and women who have quit your
job-only two hours a week-at the airplane
spotting tower, how would you react if an
enemy plane flew over and dumped a load of
bombs on the gasoline terminal and paper
mill (it's a fair possibility, for both Japan
and Germany have recently threatened to
bomb our coastal cities, and they would pick
those without anti-aircraft defenses, such as
Port St. Joe), and you remarked to yourself
"Why that plane came over during the shift
I used to fill at the tower-what's the mat-
ter with that chief observer, why doesn't he
keep someone in the tower all the time?"
There you are. Your chief observer has
begged and pleaded with the people here un-
til he's become so disgusted that he says
"Wotinell's the use-if these people can't un-
derstand that these jobs are not only for the
good of all of us but for their own welfare,
too, let 'em fry in their own lazy fat when an
incendiary bomb comes plummeting through
the roof of their home some night."
These tasks are yours and yours and
yours. If you don't do them, who will?
Anybody in Port St. Joe who believes that
they've never swallowed or repeated any Axis
propaganda? If there is, it's a miracle, for
reports and rumors hatched out by Berlin
and Tokyo are sometimes so subtle and in-
siduous that they are straightway taken to
These stories are started in all sorts ol
ways. One of the simplest methods is by way
of short-wave radio. You may hear a report
on the short-wave, repeat it for the purpose
of illustrating Nazi propaganda technique to
a person who will repeat it with less expla-
nation to someone else who will repeat it
without reference to its source except as
.something heard on the radio. And then the
story goes sweeping out in ever-widening
circles as being an actual fact.
Other stories and rumors are started by
Axis sympathizers and agents and generally
the same rumor starts at a dozen different
points in the nation at the same time.
A good rule to follow in respect to any ru-
mor, report, story or wise-crack affecting
any of our allies is to stop it promptly by
refusing to repeat it and by making your in-
formant for his or her source of information.
When we drank' liquor they said we spent
our money for drink. We quit and didn't have
any money. Then it was said we spent it on
automobiles. They rationed us out of'that,
and we still ain't, got no money.-Abbeville

BOY SCOUT TROUP RANKS
HIGH AT CAMPOREE
Boy Scout Troop No. 47 of Port
St. Joe had a very successful trip
to the Camporee at Bay Harbor
April 30 to May 2. The troop was
a little uncertain at first as to
whether they could bring back the
"Blue Ribbon," 'but by persistent
and hard work they not only
brought back the ribbon which
means Grade A-but they came out
in first place in the total number
of points made.
They did. well and received ex-
perience they could not have re-
ceived any other way. They not
only did' all the projects in the con-
test, but some good cooking, too.
They were rated high on the ar-
rangenient of their camp and the,
management of it The patrol under
Ernest Smith made the highest
rating in the Cainporee, and the
other patrol, under Ed Bartee,
made an excellent showing. The
whole troop, under Senior Patrol
Leader Gale Traxler, made a bet-
ter showing than they expected
The quartermaster did a good job
of looking after the food and othea
details. Our troop is to be com-
mended for its good wokr.
Cost of the trip was only $1.50
per Scout, and was made possible
through contributions by Mrs. B.
H. Smith, B. B. Conkd.in, Mrs. W.
H. Wellington, Mrs.. Peck Boyer
and Mr. Lunsford, who contribut-
ed either money, tents, gas, food,
etc. Mrs. Wellington was in charge
of the buying, Mrs. J. Grimsley con-
tributed bacon grease, and Gene
Farris and Tom Owens loaned
tents. We take thib method ot
thanking one and all for their co-
operation and help.
We believe our troop is to be
commended for its good work, ano
any co-operation which the parents
and; others can give us will be
'greatly appreciated. We want to
make this the best troop in the
