Right or Wrong

Jo Serra, our pertinent paragrapher from
down in Willis Swamp, blew into The Star
office Tuesday on his semi-annual trip to the
"big city" to lay in supplies for winter. He
cocked his feet up on the editorial desk and
settled down for an hour's chat.
"You know," said Jo, "this here 'subsidy'
business is getting' me sorta worried. Here the
War Food Administration was handed $500,-
,O0(0X .for subsidies to cover the loss to pro-
ducers occasioned by the 'rollback' in some
food prices, an' before the goldarn ink is dry
on that first five hundred million check, Ad-
ministrator Jones is demanding' another five
hundred million.
"Once this here 'cost of livin" subsidy gits
a foothold we kin all look to see it extended
billion by billion. Us farmers don't want no
subsidy 'cause we know we'll be at the mercy
of the guvamint to pay us such a handout,
under, one name or t'other, as it thinks, is
enough to keep us going That's jist a round-
about kinda way of making' the guvamint boss
of every farm in these here United States.
"Anybody %with any horse sense oughta
know that' the 'cost o' production, which -Is
based mainly on 'the cost o' labor, will always
set the price of a commodity. It's jist plumb
loco to talk about reducing the cost of some-
thin' when the cost of production is goin' up.
They ain't-enough money in the whole dang
world to hold up peacetime prices by subsl-
dizin' wartime production costs. The people
foQt the bill, through taxes or prices, and
there's more waste via the tax-subsidy route..
"And so," concluded Jo, "that's a load offen
my chest that's been eatin' away at my in-
nards like that there fox the leetle Spartan'
lad hid under his shirt.",

Seems like Florida solons pulled a boner at
the 1941 legislative session when, to prevent
President Roosevelt from setting Thanksgiv-
ing Day ahead, they passed a law making
"the last Thursday" of November the official
turkey day in this state. Next year November
has five Thursdays, so while the rest of the
nation observes Thanksgiving on the tradi-
tional day, we Floridians will stand around
and watch 'em, eat, because our Thanksgiving
won't be until the following Thursday. And
Attorney General Tom Watson says Gover-
nor Holland can't do a thing about it, either.
However, we'll bet that Floridians will say
"To heck with that law, we're going to eat
turkey on Thanksgiving Day, not a week


No trace of a patrol plane from
the Pensacola Naval Air Training
Center has been found since it
'was reported 70 miles south of this
city. Saturday, October 2, at noon.
Two officers, two cadets and
five enlisted nien, including one
Frenchman, were aboard., The
plane was on a routine navigation
hop over the Gulf.

We've noticed several newspaper and mag--
azine articles recently about the poor admin-
istration of the affairs of our island territory
of Puerto Rico by the United States govern-
ment. We don't think much of this type of
loose talk, for there are interests that would
like to see the United States surrender its
sovereignty over Puerto Rico.
One sure way to destroy friendship and
trust between the island and the United
States is a campaign to convince Puerto Rl-
cans that they are being badly treated by
their fellow citizens on the mainland, and
should be free of United States citizenship.
President Roosevelt, in his recent recom-
mendation of increased self-government for
Puerto Rico, said: "There is no question of
Puerto Ricans' ability now to administer their
own internal affairs and to assume the at-
tendant responsibilities."
That being the case, why should Puerto
Rico not now be admitted to the Union as the
49th state? Approximately 99 per cent of her
people are citizens of the United States, and
more than half of them are natural-born citi-
zens of the United States. Our Constitution
permits overseas states to enter the Union,
and both the Democratic and Republican par-
ties have recommended statehood for Puerto
Rico. Loss to our country of that island, the
Hawaii of the Carribbean, would greatly
weaken our defenses against a foreign enemy.
And at the same time, to keep the stars
on our flag balanced, 'why not take in the,
territory of Alaska as the 50th state? Right
now it is the most vital portion of the nation'
in respect to the war in the Pacific and with
the Alcan Highway completed, it is brought
much closer to us.

A recent advertisement shows the picture
of a wife plowing in 1777, while her husband'
was away ,fighting for their country's inde-
pendence. The advertisemenit then 'stressed
that by building up certain financial reserves
one can gain "freedom from the ugliest feat
of all-want."
Nowhere was the point made that the wo-
man plowing was doing a job to help free
herself and her husband and her country of
a fear much greater than that of financial
want, namely, fear of tyranny, fear of oppres-
sion, fear of injustice.
"Freedom from fear" and "freedom from'
want," as they are generally presented to our
people today, seem to be based entirely on
material things, as if easy living and a full
stomach were the principal guarantees which
we should worry about.
The right to be independent and free of
domination by any government, anything, o'r
any bureaucracy, is what the 1777 woman and
her husband were fighting for. A full stomach
or financial security were the least of their

Looks like tfie main topic for
discussion this week will be simply
Editor Bill handed me a letter
yesterday, saying, "Looks like this
is more your type of copy'." It was
a letter from County Agent Jake
*White in -regard to the following
birth announcement that appeared
In last' week's issue:;
'Mr., and Mrs. J. B. White are
the proud parents of a son,, born
Monday. October 4.
)Said our disconcerted and some-
what puzzled county agent:
Dear Editor Bill-If there is not
another J. B. White in Port St.
Joe, this AIN'T me. If there is an-
other J. B. White, it 7s U. K. We
had a baby March 15, 1943. So you
see, having another at this time
would be rushing things up a bit.
Your friend,
(Jake to you)
Well, it seems to me that unless
there is another, J. B. White in
this vicinity, Jake will have to
take the blame, for after all, the
youngster has to have a daddy.
And while we're still on the baby
topic, there's sure going to be one
proud sergeant in the Army Air
Corps "somewhere in England',"
for in another column of this issue
appears a birth announcement-it
is TWINS for Sgt. and Mrs. Lu-
cious L. Allen. And that
ain't all, for if you can find a
prouder grandfather than J. U.
Baggett we'd like to see him. To
hear him talk you'd think he
brought those two bouncing boys,
instead of the stork. Come to think
of it, maybe he cd. Seems to me
that he was on duty at the air-
plane spotting tower that day-he
probably saw Oldi Man Stork fly-
ing over with the double burden
and gave him a few instructions.
I was watching Jimmy Greer
the other day over at Miller's
Standard service station. When a
car drives up Jimmy comes dash-
ing out with a shrill whoop (fig-
uratively speaking, of course), a
big smile and a cherry word. It-
seems to do the trick, for that ser-
vice station looks "like one of the
busiest. in town. Quite a differ-
ence between Jimmy and J. Lamar

if any, will 'be few-and certain of

teners plenty to ponder over and
think about, but there will be' little-.
comfor.t offered those who seie
more "rocking chair" money,, po-
litical advantage, or less work and
more pay. While not loud, the talk
will be forceful and impressive, as
is the man who makes it-Millard
The Man from Miami, Senator
Grhham, Is beiy-set, with, a shock
of bu shy gray hair, wearing a not
too well pressed suit and a shirt
lodse at the throat. His smile is
captivating because, it is real and
not assumed. Blunt, strong and.
vigorous, he tackles his problems
head-on and with courage, putting
everything he's got in the job 'till
he gets it done, and his record',or
success In his undertakings is out-
standing. Like Caldwell, he'll be
short on promises, but those he
makes he'll mean and carry out.
He hits straight from the shoulder
and he hits hard, and because ot
that characteristic he has plenty of
friends who will stick with him.
Well, there you have the picture
as I see it. I have known all three
of the candidates for many years,
like themall all and admire certain
qualities in each of them.
The coming race: should 'be one
of the most interesting and im-
pressive in years, and if there ever
was a time when the voters should
consider and weigh their action, it
is the present. There will be other
candidates, of course, and, the pic-
ture may change later on, but at
the moment these three men hold
the spotlight and none of them can
be discounted.

Quality Considered, We Are Never Undersold

Yes, the heaters and stoves arrived, so bring your .certificate on down
and pick out the one you want. They will range in price from about $12.95
up to $98.50. By the way, any of you who have any trouble in filling out
your application for a certificate, bring it by the store and we will be glad
to help you with it.

Some of you have been inquiring recently about a nice bedroom suite.
We just received a few solid rock maple suites and mahogany suites. These
are "pre-war" suites and the chests and dressers have dust-proof drawers
and center guides. If you have been looking for a really nice suite, of ex-
ceptional quality and workmanship, come down and look these over. The
maple suite sells for $146.50 and the mahogany $196.50. Of course we have
other type suites, too, from $69.50 up. Those of you who are cramped for
closet space in your bedroom, why not look over our "Utillo Robes" and
chifforobes? The chifforobes are of all-wood construction and are really
very nice. The "Utillo Robes" are nothing to brag about, but they are very
inexpensive and might serve-your purpose. They run from $6.95 to $14.95.

I see we have some ironing boards, unfinished breakfast room tables
and chairs and some fancy' looking marble-top tables coming in the back
door. It would be mighty nice to have you come down and help me look
this stuff over.
We'll be looking for you.

take care of the family-you
would realize that business girls
are not the only ones who some-
times get Headache and Tired

often work just as hard and have
just as many Headaches, just as
many Stomach Upsets and get
just as Tired.
About a year ago, I first used

I find that it eases my Aching
Head, takes the kinks out of Tired,
Aching Muscles and brings relief
when I have Acid Indigestion.

Your October 1 issue brought
back to my memory three of my
old schoolmate's, Will.is and Hoot
Rowan and Carlyle Matthews. Wil-
lis Rowan being one of my spe-
cial buddies, I was much interested
in finding out where he was. Re-
cent issues of The Star also havw
brought to memory my old friend,
Monroe Duncan. I would like to
take this opportunity to say hello
to all the old school gang (assum-
ing they take the paper), hoping
we will all be able to .see eacu
other again soon.
I was stationed here when the
enemy tossed a few crates over on
our shores last June a year ago.
No damage of importance was
done, .but it wasn't because they
didn't try. I saw and heard ehougn
that night to get a damn good idea
of what the word "war" means.
It certainly makes me feel proud
of Gulf county to see how the folks
exceeded their war bond quota in
the Third. War Loan.

high at present of getting a leav1

Copy of Stars and Stripes Received
This week we received that copy
