Franklin D. Roosevelt,, brought
prompt repercussion from state
'Secretary of 'State R. A. Gray,
Who is in charge, of the state elec-

made no final decision but "there

candidates on the ballot now."'
Absentee ballots' for servicemen
already have been printed with.
only Democratic and Republican,

stop me from sending them to the'
state's soldiers and sailors."
The secretary of state already

Ways and means of solving post-

banks of the Florida National
Group held last week at Jackson-

TIRE APPLICATIONS PILE UP

misinterpreted the word "eligible"
and thought OPA meant "avail-
able." T.he number of applica-

is still rising. As a result, appli-
cations now far exceed passenger
tire quotas, in spite of the fact
that the passenger tire situation
has actually worsened nationally
because of increased military die-
Facts are that the local board
must continue to value each appli-
cation as to need of the tire in
terms of necessity to the war ef-
fort and in view of the reduced

Our Country S Right or Wrong
Our nation has long enjoyed superior dis-
tribution of its domestic' products to con-
sumers. In.the not distant future it will en-
joy a similar distribution of world products.
That this is no idle dream is evidenced by the
announcement of low-cost commercial air
service designed to expand postwar interna-
tional trade and tourist travel.
To gain some idea of the potential inter-
national cargo business, it is interesting to
note that domestic air express totaled 48,689
shipments in July, an increase of 16.7 per
cent over July, 1943. This is a foretaste of
the volume that will develop with expanded
With the coming postwar aviation pro-
gram, unimagined avenues of trade will be
blazed to every corner of the world and pai-
ticularly to South America. Our- distribu-

with thousands of new opportunities for ad-

Editor The Star:
With our U. S. A. being the

tion, it is hard to fathom why we
are such ii unsettled lot. Nobody

NO LONGER A 'FORGOTTEN CROP'
"This is a crop I'll never neglect again,"
many Gulf county farmers today are saying
of pulpwood because of their experience dur-
ing the last year.
Many farmers started thinning their wood-,
lands a year ago in response to government
appeals and because it was a patriotic thing
to do. Now they are keeping it up because
they've found pulpwood cutting is also good
A year ago Secretary of Agriculture Claude
Wickard observed that many American farm-
ers "have a forgotten crop that can be har-
vested any time" in an appeal for greater
pulpwood production. Today he would have
to change his description of pulpwood. It is
no longer "a forgotten crop."
Lots of our farmers have war bonds to
show for the pulpwood they have sold in the
last year. Others have new farm equipment
or cancelled mortagges. All have improve
woodlands if they thinned their trees prop.
Pulpwod has been a lifesaver for many
small farmers who heretofore relied on a
single crop for their livelihood. Too often a
perverse weather-a long drought or a se-
vere storm-wiped out their season's work
before harvest time.
Patriotism often pays in cash as well as in
the satisfaction of knowing that one is serv-
ing his country.
