than lettuce, which usually runs to

Our Country Right or Wrong
ATTEMPT AT INTIMIDATION
An advertisement has been published in a
number of papers in the Third Congressional
District pertaining to an interview Congress-
man Bob Sikes gave to a reporter from PM,
New York tabloid newspaper, in regard to
his stand on increased allotments for depen-
dents of servicemen. Mr. Sikes claims that
the story as published in PM in September,
1943, is "utterly false" and "low politics" and
that he is going to sue the New York paper
for defamation of character, or something.
In addition, Mr. Sikes makes the statement
that all papers reproducing the PM interview
will be included in the suit.
The publisher of The Star has not been for
or against Mr. Sikes, not giving two hoots
in hades whether he was returned to office
or not, but when we were informed the other,
day that if we ran the ad mentioned above we
would be sued, it riled us considerably.
The article was published in PM on Sep-
tember 26, 1943, and surely Mr. Sikes knew
of it immediately after it appeared, for such
A choice tidbit would be called to his atten-
tion by his friends and enemies alike. If it
were not true, why has Bob waited so long
to deny it or institute suit, and only does so
when the article appears in his home baliwick ?
As we write this, the advertisement in ques-

LET'S KEEP LEWIS ON THE JOB
When the voters of Gulf county go to the
polls next Tuesday they should stop and pause
for a moment when they reach that part of
their ballot where they will vote for a repre-
sentative to the legislature from Gulf county.
They should pause and consider carefully for
whom they will cast their ballot for this im-
In times like these, when the nation's re-
sources are being strained t'o the utmost,
when we are in the midst of a war which
threatens the very life of our state and na-
tion, our legislators should be chosen care-
fully, with an eye to their past records.
In many respects, the legislature is the
state's all-powerful official body. It makes
the laws, levies the taxes, appropriates the
public's money, directs the mode of operation
of the, state government, regulates county and
municipal governments. The legisla-
ture has the power to make or mar the future
of our state and our county.
We cannot anticipate what problems will
come before the next legislature, so the best
course is to elect a man who is capable of
seeing into and handling properly any issuu
which might arise. And, in order to handle
such issues, that man must have had past ex-
perience in the legislative halls and must show
from his past record that he is capable of
handling these matters when they do arise.
Our present representative, E. Clay Lewis
Jr.,. has all these, qualifications, and on his
past record we feel that he is the man we
will need in Tallahassee during the next ses-
sion of the legislature. He has served Gulf
county and the state well in the past, and his
record presents all the qualities of experience,
courage, skill and integrity required to serve
the people of this county best and to aid in
keeping the state government on an even
keel during these parlous times.
Lewis is well known and well liked, in the
capital's legislative halls and will be line for
many important committee chairmanships,
whereas a new man would bt given little con-
sideration, so we feel that in voting to return
E. Clay Lewis to the legislature next Tuesday
the people of Gulf county will safeguard the
economy, the serviceableness and the charac-
ter of their state and home governments.

THE PEPPER RECORD
HERE IN FLORIDA, we seem
.to be so close to the trees we
can't-discern the forest.
We have in the U. S. Senate a
man who has invested eight years
of his life courageously fighting
for the historical. things that have
softened the road to war for our
boys who are fighting it.
Claude Pepper initiated the idea
of trading old American destroy-
ers for British bases and paved
the way for Britain's victory in
the Atlantic before we ever en-
tered the war.
Claude Pepper fought for lend-
lease (financing England with war
equipment) when Hitler stood'at
Abbeyville and gazed toward help-
less, unarmed England. Later lena-
lease saved Russia, made it pom-
r..ble for Stalin's gallant men tu
turn about and liquidate a million
Germans who otherwise woula
now be. ready to face our soldiers.
As you think of these million
German soldiers, cold and' harm-
less in their graves, you may esti-
mate the additional chances our
boys have when they eventually
charge German strongholds.
AWAY BACK in the early part
of 1940, Claude Pepper pro-
duced a seven-point program pro-
neering our.readiness for the war.
Claude Pepper asked full war-
time powers for the president tha%
he might prepare to defend! Amer-
Claude Pepper dared to suggest
universal service to TRAIN every
citizen for the country's, defense
and for their own defense.
All of this almost two years be-
fore Pearl Harbor! When 'other
senators. were floundering around
with Isolationists and cautiously
mouthing that they would never
vote to send American soldiers
overseas, Claude Pepper was read-
ing the plans of Ritler and Hrou-
hito as if their minds were art
open book. He was not only shout-
ing and correctly prophesying ap-
proaching danger, but he was
constfruotively planning- to do
something about it.
- It Softened Hitler
and Tojo. .
Brought the End
of the War Nearer!
AND NOW there are those among
us who would displace Claude
Pepper in the U. S. Senate.
Claude Pepper, according to
these critics, is this and Claude
Pepper 'is that; well, the man may
..,'be.this and he, may be that. As-
suredly he does not claim to be a
second Jesus, Christ. But, what-
ever his faults, Claude Pepper is
Florida's No. 1 patriot; Florida's
No. 1 planner of war preparations
and Florida's No. 1 voter to train
our boys when there was yet
time to train them.
So then, the cold. bare record
shows Claude Pepper as the man
who spoke out long before Hitler
declared war upon us and dce-
manded that we help England and
Russia while there were still opera.
lanes in the oceans to get help to
these countries which enabled
them to fight battles that now
mean our very freedom.
W HO IS FIGHTING Claude Pep-
per? Who would fight such a
man who has demonstrated such
wvison, so much foresight in Amer-
ica's greatest crisis?
Drew Pearson, non-sentimental
commando-type author of Wash-
ington Merry-Go-Round, whose ob-
'servations and reporting' hAve
stood the test of time, in Wash-
.ington, the toughest, roughest bat-
tle area in the political world,
told us in his March 31st-column.
This is what Mr. Pearson said:
"Believe it or not, the GOP Is
pouring piles of money into one
campaign to elect a Democratic
senator. Actually they're not esp-
ecially concerned about who the
Democrat is, so long as it's not
Claude Pepper. They simply want
to lick Pepper in the Florida pri-
mary, which takes place May 2.
"This Pepper opposition probJ-
ably will consolidate behind young-
ish Ollie Edmunds, Jacksonvinle
judge, whose chief support seems
to come from the Associated In-
dustries of Florida, the political
action front of the State Chamber
of Commerce. Edmunds appears

to be the most likely candidate
among those willing to runagainst
"So desperate is the Florida hate-
Roosevelt crowd for a strong can-
didate that they even asked for-
mer Ambassador Joe Davies, whose
,foreign ,policy is anathema to
them, to run against Pepper.
"In addition to the Associated
Industries, Pepper is opposed by
the Byrd-for President clubs in
Florida, and by the insurance
companies. The insurance lobbby
here in Washington gave him an
ultimatum either support their
bill to exempt inusrance companies
from the anti-trust laws or be op-
,posed in Florida. Pepper chose op-
"A KEY MAN in administration
A strategy in the senate, Pepper
has decided to forego proffered
support from his friends in Wash-
ington. Harry Truman of Mrs-
souri, Harley Kilgore of West Vir-
ginia and several -other Democratic
senators have offered to speak for
him in Florida, but Pepper prefers
to fight single-handed."
There's your story of Claude
Pepper, friends. It's bigger than
any (political campaign we've ever
seen. You can take all the political
editorials, all the political yam-
merings of all the candidates aneo
you won't get the real story of this
young man who fights alone; be-
cause Claude Pepper, like the late,
great Woodrow Wilson, may be a
bigger man in defeat than his op-
ponent would ever be in victory.
BUT, MEANWHILE forget the
fortunes of Claude Pepper.
What of the fortunes of Florida?
Can a citizen of Florida possibly
figure out any percentage in put-
ting an anti-Roosevelt freshman
into the senate against a pro-
Roosevelt young veteran who by
1949 easily may become one of. the
outstanding figures in the world?
The thing sounds preposterous.
Is it possible that Florida would
throw away a sure-shot chairman
of the Foreign Relations Comit-
tee for a freshman senator?
Is it possible that Florida would
say to its soldiers, now poised in'
England or fighting, in Italy:
"Well, Claude Pepper gave our
old destroyers to England and he
got tanks and guns to Russia, and
all of that helped soften up the
enemy for you boys, but we think
he's too much of a rubber-stamp;
orhe's too liberal for. the little
man; and, besides, he voted to
raise our taxes."

For the past 36 years I have lived in Bay County. During that time I
have served the people of Bay County as their Sheriff for 12 years All of
my interests are located here.
I believe that during and after this war we are going to need, men of
wide experience in all walks of life settled men to represent the people
in their Legislature. Surely one of the great problems of our times will be
Post-War Legislation, and it will take the mature judgment of older men to
properly maintain the American Way of Life for our people. The rehabilita-
tion -of our returning boys .' the change from war-time to peace-time
growth and many other problems will confront our people. Surely these
problems require sane, sober thinking and judgment. Judgment that only
a man of experience could have.
As your State Senator, I will endeavor to render such service as will
be for the best interest of all the people. During my tenure in office I
made many contacts and gained experience I consider invaluable to, me as

Peace Without Panic
Business depression is -not the
price of peace. If peace could be
bought with agreements to undergo
severe financial reverses and give
up many things we have now, the
American people would accept the
terms bravely, almost unanimously.
Peace would be worth it many times
over but peace can not be bought
If war should end tomorrow, prac-
'tically everybody in the United
,States would meet a sudden setback
,in money matters. However, the
best economic minds in this country
believe such a calamity can be
:avoided, that hard times after this
war are not necessary. Among them
fare Bernard M. Baruch, John M.
;Hancock and others whose profound
'knowledge of economics and under-
standing ,of business are nowhere
The recently published Baruch re-
port, -of 'which Mr. Hancock is co-
'author and in which many 'distin-
guished students of business had a
hand, is too big and important to
,cover in a one-column discussion.
It sets up provisions absolutely nec-
essary to post-war prosperity, es-
sential to the life of Democracy and
Private Enterprise. It proposes
.things this column has upheld as
sound principles for two years.
At present America has prosper-
ity. Factories of this country have
never been busier than now; jobs
were never easier to get; workers
were never better paid. Many peo-
ple are living well, dressing well,
setting good tables. Workers always
manage to live somehow but now,
when they live well, rural people
prosper. Farmers get good prices
for as much as they can grow be-
cause factories are busy.
Recent Scare Copy
This scares many people: Two-
thirds of what American factories
are making these days, 66%%
measured by dollar volume (call it
50 billion dollars a year) consists of
war goods-stuff nobody needs in
time of peace. It is a staggering
figure. But why be guessing how
many jobs peace will,.destroy if, as
the report implies, peace can be
made to create an equal number of
new jobs or more?.
It is no secret that work means
wealth; that busy people fare bet-
- ter than idle ones. To save our way
of life, we Americans must'be kept
busy, but how? The report says by
making it possible for .factory own-
ers to keep their plants going. The
program has two main features: (1)
to get government out of business
and (2) to facilitate the reconver-
sion of war plants to peacetime pro-
Hope and Assurance
All manufacturers of war goods
will be anxious to switch quickly into
peace-time pursuits if possible. Gov-
ernment can help (a) by terminat-
ing war contracts promptly and pay-
ing plant owners for most of their
war work before finishing all the
tedious details of final settlement,
0(b) by moving government-owned
machinery from privately-owned
plants, clearing decks for peacetime
production, and (c) by cash loans.
Moral support can come from
Washington also. (a) By getting en-
tirely out ,of. business, government
can encourage, private competition
most effectively. (b) By systematic
disposal of excess war materials,
government can save many markets
from ruin. (c) By fixing a ceiling
on taxes, government can keep
'many businesses going that other-
wise would die. Sound economy,
hard work and good sense will save
Democracy and guarantee prosperi-
ty. Coming chapters of Looking
Ahead will discuss some of these
provisions, one at a time.

down to the grass roots. And already it has found spokesmen, worthy
