Legislature Apparently Is No
Nearer Solution After Six
Weeks of Debate
T'he deadlock over senatorial re-
apportionment in Florida continues
at Tallahassee after six weeks of
battle in the legislative halls, and
two Tampa, lawyers believe that
major legal questions of the dis-
pute could be taken to court un-
der the speedy 1943 declaratory
judgment act, and a supreme court
ruling could be obtained by No-
vember. They suggested a recess
of the legislaturee pending the final
court decision if the South Florida
block decides to litigate.
North Florida senators express
belief that compromise is closer
than any time np to now, but' Sen-
ator Beacham of West Palm Beach
'old his southern colleagues that
"we seem to be just as far from
reapportionment as we were the
It is the belief of the two Tampa
lawyers that the declaratory judg-
ment statute could be used to get
an opinion from the Leon county
circuit court, and, later, the su-
preme ceurt. on these points:
1. Whether the constitutional
provision calling f.i' ar vF.-.j. ion-
ment every 10_year ru'..-.. .:y
2. Whether the reapportionment
must be by legislative act, as South
Florida contends, or can be by the
North Florida method of constitu-
3. Whether a constitutional ae.,
which merely rewrote into the law
the boundaries set up in 1925, is
-good for more 'than 10 years.
'4. If the 1935 act expires this
year. whether the district boun-
daries will stand.
5. If the boundaries are wiped
out, whether seats of senators sub-
;ect io election next year will have
to be filled by election from the
state at large.

IS YOUR SELF-RESPECT WORTH
Are you willing to help win the war against
Japan? Naturally you will say "yes." But
apparently there are a lot of people in Gulf
county who .don't seem to give a hoot one
way or the other if the failure of this county
to meet its E bond quota in the Seventh War
Loan Drive, can be taken as a criterion.
There are two outstanding things those of
us who are privileged to remain at home can
do to aid our fighting forces. First, we can
work to the limit of our strength and ability,
without interruption; second, we can deny
ourselves luxuries in order to buy the wat
bonds necessary to give our fighting men
every ounce of equipment and food they need.
While our -sobts, brothers and husbands oT
Gulf county are facing death and foregoing
the pleasures of home and family life, every
mother's son of us should put every dollar
we can into financing this war, so that by the
sheer weight of the equipment we throw into
it we will bring it to a conclusion at the earlr-
est possible moment, thereby saving the. lives
of countless loved ones. '
'After all, this is our 'war; our boys are the
ones on the firing line ; our homes are the ones
being saved. How much would your life or
property be worth if the Japanese army and
navy had not been held at bay, and were not'
Don't think that in buying war bonds you,
are in some manner doing someone else a ta-
vor-you're the one who is really favored by
having an opportunity to buy them. Think
what it means to our boys at the front
to know that the necessary money is given
willingly to back them up.
There are going, to be more war loans in
the future, and we hope to see Gulf county
oversubscribe each one of them. All warloans
necessary to knock out the Japs must go over
the top with a bang. American bullets and
American money are the most discouraging
things they can face today. Why should we
hesitate about buying that extra bond or whly
should it be necessary to be "high pressured"
into buying bonds when the boy with a rifle
hits the beachheads without question, his
stomach drawn up in a tight knot by fear, not
knowing at what moment he may be blown

The Low Down
Editor The Star:
then some of us quibble or hesitate about
loaning $25 or $100 to buy more supplies for
There's only one answer if you wish to
keep your self-respect-and the editor of The
Star doesn't have to write it out for you.
Our nephew, S/Sgt. Charles W. Sheppard,
who is apparently on his way to the South
Pacific, writes us that he doesn't know where
he is heading, but if that we can find a book
with directions on how to build an ice box,
to please send it to him as he'll probably be
in need of one. Which reminds us that there
are many kinds of ice boxes .
There is the good old-fashioned kind, con-
sisting of a large chest divided into a zinc-
lined compartment at the top which holds ice,
and a partitioned lower section where food is
Then there is the new-fangled electric or
gas variety, filled with all kinds of chromium
plating and enameled fixtures -. and the
theory is that this kind of ice box does just
as good a job as the others in keeping our
meat, milk and vegetables from spoiling.
There is a third kind of ice box, too. We
don't see much of this latter kind, but we
have it on good authority that it is more im- ,
portant than all the rest. It is made of pa-
per-kraft fiberboard paper, to be exact. It
consists of two boxes, one within the other.
These boxes are covered on both sides with
foil, and they are specially insulated with cot-
ton. A container holding 19 pounds of ice is
placed in the center box, and temperature-
ranging from 39 to 54 degrees are maintained
for more than 60 hours.
This ice box is different in another respect, j
too. It isn't made to hold food. It t
doesn't stand in the kitchen of any home. It c
is made to be stored in the hold of a fast-
flying plane ". and it contains blood!
Cool, clean, fresh blood is flown in'these s
ice boxes by ofr' army and navy fliers to out-
posts in the Pacific for transfusions into the t
veins of wounded fighting men who are too
near death-to react to ordinary plasma. The
number of lives that have been saved by this
ice box reaches into the thousands.
It is comforting to know that our army and
navy will go to these lengths to save the lives
of our American boys. It is -particularly satis-
fying to know that these ice boxes come from
There must be real pride in the realization
'that top quality pulpwood, cut today in Gulf
-county andmade into, kraft paper by the St.
Joe. Paper Company, may be winging its way
overseas in the form of an unusual ice box,
bound on a mission of merGy tomorrow. .
And who cain tell, perhaps this ice box we de-
scribe here may be the means of saving the
life 'of our nephew who would like to know
how to construct one.
