Supreme Court Sticks
To Labor Act Decision
The United States supreme court
at WVashington Mondlay refused to
reconsider a decision which held
invakd two sections of the recent-
ly enacted Florida law regulating
labor union activities.
;The sections required licensing
of paid business agents of unions
and registration of labor organiza-
tions and their officials.
The court's refusal to recon-
sider its earlier ruling in the case
hatd the effect of conclusively
knocking out 'the only two pro-
visions of the 1943 statute that
have been tested.
The, ruling does not involve
other provisions of the law which
make it unlawful to strike without

Our Country Right or Wrong
THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME
A wonderful new age of scientific magic is
just around the corner. It may be along any
day now, depending only upon how soon the
American people can get the wheels of peace-
time industry rolling.
Stores will be getting new merchandise,
and most of us will be in for a pleasant shock
when. we see the amazing and unusual new
products that research has brought us.
Here is a preview of just a few of the many
surprises we may expect to find:
Paper sheets and pillowcases.
Packaging that will protect foodstuffs
Livestock feeds of high protein content,
distilled from wood.
Top quality sugar, also from wood.
Alcohol made from wood that isn't wood
alcohol, but equal to the finest grain distilled
Rayon cord for tires that will outlast cars
Furniture and flooring made out of lami-
nated paper, having the tensile strength of
Surprised at those items? Well-you'll be
even more surprised to learn that they're all
made of pulpwood-yes, pulpwood grown
right here in Gulf county.
Port St. Joe and Gulf county has a double
stake in this age of magic. Not only do we
stand to benefit from'the jobs that pulpwood
production affords, but also by cutting the
pulpwood so. urgently needed we can make
these products available sooner.
How about jumping in the car this morn-
ing and driving out to Los Angeles? We can
be back in time for supper.!
Fantastic! the average citizen will exclaim.
British Fleet Air Arm Pilot Lt. Robert
Morgan this week disclosed that he and as.
sociates have developed a jet-propelled car
which he hopes to drive at a speed of approxi-
mately 520 miles an hour.
Morgan plans to make his main trial run
on a Chilean beach within the next year. The
car will look like a bomb. It consists of a
single giant wheel, 12 feet in diameter, cov-
ered by a streamlined, pear-shaped body 23
feet long and 15 feet high. The lone wheei
will revolve on oil bearings and Morgan will
drive from a seat inside the wheel.
Really, we're beginning to think that Buck
Rogers is a piker.-The Miami Post.
There seems to be quite a demand to elimi-
nate all rationing, especially the rationing
of meat. There is also a demand to wipe out
the OPA, take off the brakes and let busi-
ness go wild, free and reckless.
Rationing is not pleasant and price,control
often works hardships on some merchants,
but how much meat do you think would come
into Sebring if they quit rationiing it?. Con-
cerns nearest the packing plants would get
the choice, and by the time it dribbled this
far the cheapest white bacon would be all that
was left. Prices would go so high that only
the rich could afford ordinary medium cuts.
Inflation would grow so fast that you
couldn't load, enough money in your car to
buy enough groceries for lunch.
While the black markets are now taking
the choicest merchandise, especially meat,
there are still a few legitimate merchants left
and they are able to get some merchandise
that is much better than it would be if we
take off the brakes entirely.
Some people think the black mraket is
something they have in New York or Europe,
but a prominent citizen told us recently that
there has not been a day since the war that
he has not had a good big steak for dinner. Do
you know anyone who had enough red points
to eat steak every day? The same man also
said: "The OPA should be wiped out now."
A little more observance of the law and a
little less cussing of the government would not
hurt a bit at this time. We are facing an
emergency now, just as great as we faced in
December 1941. A different enemy, but one
just as ruthless..-and tricky, and a lot more
dangerous.-Highlands County News.
WHERE ARE THE 'JOBLESS'?
The great throbs of sympathy and tears of
grief being exhibited in Washington by some
of the politicians for the "jobless" are not
fooling many people around here. It is cer-
tain that the American taxpayer has intelli-
gence to see the silliness of it all.
In this area there is hardly a business or
industry, that is not seriously handicapped
and curtailed for lack, of labor. Strenuous ef-
forts have been made and are being made in
this community to secure painters, cooks,
beauticians, printers and various types of
other help without results. Common labor is
just as difficult to find.
Shall we then be taxed to pay a weekly
wage to men who just prefer not to work? Is
a man "unemployed" when he chooses not to
work? When politicians scream about hunger
and distress from unemployment and at the
same- time employers are closing their busi-
nesses for lack of labor, it is hard to find
printable words to describe such perversion
and quackery.-Delray Beach News.
A Kansas paper notes: "Over 8000 unem-
ployment claims were filed in Kansas last
week, but it is still difficult to find anyone to
do real work.",
Another tough reconversion problem will
be getting the women out of the war plants
into the kitchen-or, from nuts to soup, as
it were.-Cincinnati Enquirer,
Even this early, the balmy Florida 'air is
