With State Affairs
Hat Still Fits and Commands
Respect of All Who
By RUSSELL KAY
I like, immensely, the attitude
of Governor-elect Millard Caldwell
toward his new job. Since the
election last May, he has taken
advantage of every opportunity to
acquaint himself with Florida's
many problems. Getting into every
section of the state, he is meeting
and talking with people in all
walks of life, studying local con-
ditions and generally preparing
himself to take over, the trying
duties of chiei executive with a
sound background of authentic in-
formation that is up-to-date and
gained at firsthand.
As governor-elect, he finds so-
cialites, big business' executives
and, officials eager and- anxious to
"make a fuss over ,him." They
would like to lavishly entertain,
throw cocktail parties, stage mass
meetings and special events in his
honor. He has carefully avoided
that sort of thing.
Recently he attended thQ joint
meeting of the Scenic Highlana-
ers, Bee Line Highway, Central
Florida, Inc., and Orange Blossom
Trail associations at Silver Springs.
He made no speeches, took no
part in the deliberations-simply
sat in the back of the room, mod-
estly, quietly, listening and learn-
ing. Cordiial and friendly was his
greeting to old acquaintancEs,
leaving them with the pleasant Im-
and who could only assume such
state duties at actual sacrifice to
their own interests, in a desire to
advance the welfare of the state.
Such major problems as highw-ay
construction, water conservation,
oil leases, conduct of state institu-
tions, finance and taxation are be-
ing given close and thoughtful
study by Millard CaldwelL. His in-
q-,. uuiy anm 1nuIVstigation into such
pression, "He's the same told Mil- subjects is not lie to oee,

enarce ovit a fwiilarflr'
dignity- and a certain amount or
reserve, he manages to avoid any
degree of self-importance, his hat
still fits and he commands respect
from all who contact him with his
genuine sincerity, his poise, ana
He hasn't had, much to say since
the election, but I like what he has
said. He talks straight from the
shoulder and gives the impression
of a man who has his feet on the
ground but who realizes he faces
a big job and is determined to give
it his best.
If he means what he says, and
I for one, believe he does, he of-'
fers little encouragement to po-
litical hangers-on, who posse-ssing
no real ability or. qualifications,
hope to secure good-paying, easy
jobs at the expense of the tax-
payers. Millard made no promises
during the campaign and, he tells
us it is his intention to pick the

Our Country Right or Wrong
We have stopped several people on the
street and asked them what they thought of
post-war plans for Port St. Joe and Gulf
county and found that all of them were only
interested in winning the war and were will-
ing to let the future take care of itself after,
the war is won.
We have no quarrel to pick with them for
their idea, that the war be won before any
future plans for our community are con-
sidered, but we have no doubt that victory is
in sight-perhaps not until next year, or the
year after that or the year after that-but we
do contend that post-war planning now is of
vital necessity, for the community that plans
now for the future is the community that
Gulf county has a post-war building fund
.and definite plans should be formulated right
now for the use of that fund, particularly to
provide employment for the servicemen who
will return home when the conflict ends.
One thing in particular that should be
planned for Port St. Joe is an airport large
enough for medium-size planes or the rapid
development 6f aviation will not help us to
grow. This city is strategically located for
post-war air commerce with South America
and we will need a combination field capable
of caring for both land and sea planes.
We must plan for things like these now, or
other more progressive communities will beat
us to the funds that will-be available for such
If we have our plans all down in black and
white when the war ends we will be ready
for the green light, but unless we think and
plan for the future we will have no future.

AN ANNIVERSARY OF ACHIEVEMENT FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS
Just a year ago this week, American news-
papers launched the Victory Pulpwood
Campaign in response to an appeal from Don-
ald M. Nelson, chairman of the War Produc-
At that time the pulpwood production pic- O
ture was drab indeed. The nation's pulpwood
supply had been steadily dwindling since the
fall of 1942 while military and essential civil-
ian needs for paper and other pulpwood prod-
ucts had been as steadily rising.
Although the emergency is not yet past, we
are happy to report that real progress has
been made during the twelve months that
The Star and other newspapers in pulpwood
areas have been supporting this campaign.
The trend in pulpwood production has been
reversed. Receipts this year are consistently a
better than last year and in some months on
a par with 1942 when pulpwood production
reached its highest peaks. However, pulpwood
inventories all but disappeared during the lean
months of 1943 and military requirements for
paper and other pulpwood products have ex-
ceeded earlier government estimates.
We are not yet out of the woods-literally
or figuratively. In fact, WPB officials report
that the victory tempo of our military serv-
ices has increased the demands for pulpwood
-now a war material of the highest priority.
As a pulpwood-producing area, Gulf county
and our neighboring counties can be proud of
our achievements during the past year. But, STARDUST and The Low Down
