Dear Mr. Smith I have been
reading all the letters in The Stai
From other servicemen and thought
maybe it is time for me to write
you, although I don't have much tu
say further than I've been here for
two and. a half weeks in pre-flight
school for bombardlie.rs.
I read every bit of The Star,
even to the ads. It is wonderful
to read all the 'home town news
'when you're so far from home. I
like that new column, "Stardust
,,and Moonshine," and tall "The
SOther Fellow" to keep up the good
work-it seems like you are at
home when you read that column.
We fellows who used to be. ca-
Sdets are all over here in. a re.
classification squadron. We will be
sent to another post from here for
-further training in the ground
crews of the air force. I am not
alone here, for there are hundreds
'morei- like me who have been
"washed out,". or as they call it
: now, "eliminated" because of physi-
cal. reasons. It seems that the least
'little. thing will disqualify you
from flying, for you have to be

but we soon forget about that, for
We still have 'a job to do. As yet
I don't know where they are going
to send me. I am here.now wait-
ihg to hear' something about it.
i This is a fine air base and 1
.. like it all right, although I hhd
much rather be at Tyndall, Mar.-
,(anna or Apalachicola. I was in
,bombardier navigator pre flight
school and would have been there
for nine months before going on

diering had .1I not been eliminated.
My pals are still over there ana
I go to visit them occasionally.

he came to see me one week-end,
but we didn't get together as I
was not here at the camp at that
time. Jilian Raburn, I hear, is at

Our Country Right or Wrong

Sunday afternoon while talking with J. A.
Christmas the discussion got around to the
high wages being paid most workers today,
how they go hog-wild with the money, buy-"
ing anything, whether they need it or not,
and how a lot of them buy war bonds and
later sneak back to the bank and cash them
in. Yesterday. thinking back over the con,
versation, we could see where such present-
day trends are going to have a definite infla-
ence on the future, particularly that of the
people leaning more and more on the govern-
ment.. That was the case in Russia up until
recently, and a number of plenipotentiaries
,..returning from that country have stated that
tfii leftistis" tendency is rapidly disappearing.
*\\\li;ill Willkie and Eddie Rickenbacker
have co0W'e -'back home stating definitely that
Russia wa,9 becoming a democracy, and they
would not sma.ke that statement unless they
had received tlha. impression, and very defi-
nitely. Conversely one of them. at least,
goes on to aver tha "if we (in the United
-States) continue to -.nIve toward the- left,
as we are doing, we .".ay easily be Bol-
shevik at the end of the wai-." So said Rick-
enbacker recently- Such a statement bear
' So busy with the war has this coutitry been
that perhaps quite blindly it is walkli'gg to-
ward a precipice politically. No good, "red-
blooded American would advocate today "a
revolution to install a state supreme, with' :
every citizen a slave of the state. But with-
out aiming in that direction he is unwit-
tingly facing that way when he wants to let
the other fellow make such and such a sacri-
fice, for eventually both he and the other fel-
low, the one flabby with over-indulgence and
the other weak with heavy burdens. will have
,to lean for support upon the arm of the cen-
tral government and look' up to it as to a
master-the central government which in a
democracy is the servant of the people.
I, The steps might be these: i
"But I'm used to sugar in my coffee, and
John Jones isn't. Why should I be rationed?"
"But-sh-sh-we have to have that meat.
It's probably, sanitary." (
"Of course we'll strike. Do you want the
garment workers to get higher wages than
we do?"
"Why not a subsidy? Should I produce
corn for nothing?" r
"Certainly Washington should boost crude c
oil profits. Would you expect me to drill just o
for fun?"'
"What if I am able to work-I deserve a
pension, don't I?" l
"That's government land and a government t
project-the government decides what tc, do h
there, and we all can get jobs."
"Why, the government organizes the party
-naturally I vote for the candidate."
It is false, of course, to make any general r
statements and put all the civilians in one
category of extravagant- greedy, apathetic
wasters so far as war sacrifices are concerned.
But the appalling amount of wrong attitude
in all walks of life makes one wonder if a
"-leftist "let-the-state-handle-it" line of thought

hasn't made the offspring of sturdy pioneers
rather soft.
Imbued with the idea that the federal gov- I
ernment has untold funds and powers and
ability, perhaps too many of us say to our- '/
selves that the government can handle this '
war perfectly all right and that they them-
selves are going to have a gay time on the
high wages and the excitement of the war P
period. A certain percentage patronize black
markets, for such would not exist without
Sure, there's much buying of war bonds.
They're a good investment-not much sacri- ( ./
fice there. Besides many bonds have been
bought for praise, with patriotism a side is-'
sue, and shortly have been cashed in.
Pleasure seeking and pleasure travel in
these times may have abated a little. but in j -
some localities there have never been such J -
long lines at theater doors nor such full plat-
forms at railway stations and bus depots. All
these people have plenty of money to spend.
But the rainy day always comes. Then
what? There is little likelihood that the fan- I/ US
tastic wages now prevalent in defense plants
and shipyards can continue after the war, al-
though it is probable that private industry, ii
not unduly burdened by taxes and regimenta-
tion, can offer jobs to millions to produce STARDUST and
consumer goods so long in demand. But the MOONSHINE

r igLatorsL of une idea of closing
Wednesday afternoons for the dur-
ation, but we're giving 'em credit
for it, since they all agreed to do
so when they signed up for the
half-holiday last April.
But regardless of where it was
started, stores throughout the, state
which have been closing Wednes-
day afternoons during the sum-
mer will continue to dio so through-
out the coming winter, and for the
duration of the war, according to
William N. Munroe, secretary of
'he Florida State Association of
Retail Grocers.
iMunroe said the plan was being
continued in an effort to spread
the shopping period and. avoid a
week-end rush. Stores will stock up
on Wednesday afternoons and try
to get customers to .do their shop-
ping on Thurdsay and take some
of the load off business for Fi'iday,
and Saturday.
Munroe said he had'visited most
cities throughout the state and the

store keepers are all in accord
with Wednesday afternoon closing
for the duration.

Petty Officer First Class J. A.
Wilkins of the Marianna Navy re-

He is particularly anxious to sign
up young women to join the
WAVES and states thatithe enlist-

up so that young women desiring
to volunteer no longer have to wait
two or three weeks to learn whe.

If you want a wallet or "jacket"
in which to keep your gasoline ra-
tion coupons, you can secure one
free from Jimmy Greer at Miller's
Standard Oil service station.
These jackets, have two pockets
instead of one. They will accom-
modate conveniently not only the
basic and supplementary ration
coupons, but also tire inspection
record, and other incidental papers.
There is also a space for a record
of gasoline purchases-date, quan-
tity and speedometer reading.

Man is that foolish creature who
shortens his life by working hard
to acquire things that further

Uncle Sam needs more pulpwood.

That's all Uncle Sam asks you to do
