Boosted By City
City Commission Finds Increases
Necessary In Order To Meet
Rising Operating Costs
In order to meet increased op-
erating costs and due to the fact
that the city will receive no- reve-
nue this year from the race track
fund. the board of city commis-
sioners at its meeting Tuesday 1
night passed two ordinances pro- p
viding for an increase in the tax i
on entertainments of all types and
increasing the tax per gallon on
gasoline from one-half cent to one-
cent. Both ordinances will become
effective February 3.
The entertainment tax ordinance 1
provides for a tax of 2 cents on t
each admission charged exceeding
10 cents, but not exceeding 15
cents; 4 cents on each admission
exceeding 15 cents, but not exceeft- N
ing 25 cents, and 5 cents on eacn
admission exceeding 25 cents.

The board also had up for first
reading an ordinance providing for
the assessing of 50 cents per month
per family unit or business estab-

The boost in village, and the

found necessary by the board dub
to increased city operating costs

Mobile Unit To
Will Help Guidle and Direct De-
velopment of This 'Section Into -
Profitable Agricultural Area
By J. B. WHITE, Agronomist
r'he mobile experiment station
located in Gulf county, which will
also work Bay, Calhoun, Liberty
r 'T'anklin counties, is a branch
or sub-station of the experiment
station in Quincy.
The purpose of any experiment
;-ition is to do research work. It
tries to answer the whys, where,
hows and the whens of any prob-
lem. The problems of this, area
are many, and it will take a long
time to answer them. Another
purpose is to help guide and di-
rect the development of this set-
tion into a sound, -practical ana
profitable agricultural area.
One of the first problems of this
station will be that of grasses',
clovers and winter feed' crops on
the flats or prairies In the several
counties. Along with this, work
will be done with timber. Then,
finally, work will be done with
vegetables, fruits, etc.
The main theme of all of tne
above-mientioned will be soils. The
type we. have and how to, fertilize
and manage it in order to makv
plants grow profitably.
These mobile units are co-opera-
tive offices. There must be the
fullest co-operation between the
landowner and the station. Some
have the idea that the station will
plow and plant several acres or
grass, etc., for the individual free
of charge. This idea is wrong. In
some cases, however, there will be
larger acreage, such as 50 or 60
acres, seeded for pasture manage-
ment. In these cases the land-
owner will bear the greater portion
of the expense.
The factors which will determine
where the experimental plots, will
be located are soil type, location,
and co-operation of the landowner.

Our Country' Right or Wrong
WILL FREEDOM SURVIVE VICTORY?
Another year of war has drawn to a close.
Volumes of rhetoric will be written about the
awful destruction of the past twelve months.
Puny efforts will be made to describe the suf-
fering of the men of the armed forces, who
face death day after day, year after year, far
from home and loved ones. Actually, there
are no words that can adequately sum up
1944, the most critical year in American his-
The astounding thing about the home front
-and that includes Port St. Joe-is the fact
that except for the families of service men,
it lives normally and has no conception of
the horrors of war. Communiques from Wash-
ington on the price of toilet paper or some
other trivial item fill countless columns in the
daily newspaper. Social security planning,
"full" employment and dizzy talk of a con-
tented post war world, with all the worries
assumed by a benevolent government, arise
from the American scene like a haze from a
swamp. Clear, unqualified thought on the
subject of personal freedom is almost totally
Millions expect government to furnish them
jobs, to guarantee peacetime prices, to pro-
tect them from the insecurity of competition.
They should remember that the more they
ask of government, the less freedom they
Our people could lose everything of ma-
terial value as the price of victory in this war
and still have a bright future. However, let
too much government destroy the freedom
and hope of the individual to build again and
there is no future. The right of ownership is
more important than ownership itself.
WE MUST NOT FAIL
Someday the war is going to end. Someday
millions .of American men will come home
from across the seas, and again the danger
will be faced that the people of a war-weary
United States will wash their hands of in-
ternational problems. If they succumb to that
danger they will probably never have another
grace period in which to muddle through a
"preparedness program" such as they have
'had in the last two wars.
Now, before the war is over, before the
danger of a weary reaction sets in, is the time
to help create an effective peace organization
and to help lay the groundwork for dissolv-
ing archaic trade barriers.
The late Wendell Willkie spoke from the
heart when he said: "I was a 'soldier in the
last war, and after that war was over I saw
our bright dreams disappear, our stirring slo- 11
gans become the jests of the cynical, and all
because the fighting peoples did not arrive at
any common postwar purposes while they
fought. It must be our resolve to see that
this does not happen again.
"While they fight, the people of the world
must come to a common understanding of
what they fight for and what they hope for.
Millions have already died in this war and
many thousands more will go before it is
over. Unless Britons and Canadians, and Rus-
sians and Chinese, and Americans and all our
fighting Allies, in the, common co-operation
of war, find the instrumentalities and the
methods of co-operative effort after the war,
we, the people, have failed our time and our
Our redoubtable Frank Colby's broad ex-
perience in the field of words was, of course,
sooner or later, to include a personal meeting
with the formidable little gremlin who has
made his presence felt in newspaper shops
ever since the invention of that remarkable
typesetting device, the linotype machine. We
refer, naturally, to the puckerish Mr. Etaoin
Shrdlu. The unique spelling of his name un,
doubtedly is due to the fact that two of the
vertical rows of keys on a linotype machfile
are arranged in that order. Similarly, if one
ran his fingers down the third and fourth
vertical rows of keys on a typewriter, he
would produce: 3edc 4rfv.
Now, no one particularly resents the fact
that Etaoin Shrdlu likes to loiter around a
composing room. In fact, his presence is gen-
erally welcome, because often the linotype
operator gets a line of type off to a bad start
and desires to fill it out hurriedly so it can
be discarded and a new one started. Etaoinv
is always handy on the keyboard, and he gets
into type either by his first, last or full name,
depending upon how much space there is to
fill." Sometimes'he is 'acconipanied by rather

marine stationed at Tinian in the Mariannas, s
who approached his superior officer and said: f

found at large on the island, the officer de- c
liberated the case in all seriousness, and af-
ter due consideration nodded his head and s
said: "Save me a piece." r

The war has taught home-
makers a lot of things and the
easiest task to learn was how to
change fuses when service is in-
terrupted by blown fuses. In days
of peace the average homemaker
would phone the electric com-
pany when in this trouble, but
by following the suggestions
given below anyone can change a
fuse quickly and safely,
1. PULL MAIN SERVICE
SWITCH. Check up beforehand
and read the instructions on the
switch-box, which tell how to
open the circuit. After the switch
is pulled the entire service in the
house will be disconnected.
2. LOOK FOR THE BLOWN
FUSE. With main switch OFF.
the burned-out fuse may be iden-
tified at times by a darkened spot
if it is a cartridge, or a broken
link in the case of a screw type.
3. TO CHANGE A CART-
RIDGE FUSE. With main switch
still in OFF position, grasp the
'use in the middle with the fin-
gertips and give it a firm tug to
break the grip of the spring clips.
The replacement is inserted the
same way and will snap Into the
clips when pressure is applied.
TO CHANGE A SCREW-TYPE
FUSE. With the main switch OFF,
imply turn the top in a counter-
clockwise direction. The replace-
ment is screwed in clockwise.
4. CLOSE MAIN SERVICE
SWITCH. If this does not re-es-
ablish the service interrupted by
he blown fuse, pull the main
witch again and check the other
uses again until the defective
mne is found. Be sure to have
main switch OFF for all fuse

(a platoon usually contains about 36
men); it is commanded usually by
a captain. A battalion (squadron in
cavalry) consists of two or more

three batallions and generally is
