To Receive Tax
Intangible and Homestead Exemp-'
tion Forms Must Be Filed By
April 1, Says Patrick
Homestead exemption application
forms and blanks for filing personal
and intangible property returns are
being mailed out lby County Tax
Assessor Sanmmy Patrick to all
residents of Gulf county Nwho have
claimed homestead exemptions pre-
viously or who filed personal or
intangible tax returns for 1947.
The assessment date for all prop-
erty is January 1, he said, and all
returns and exemption, applications
must be completed by April 1.
Patrick particularly called atten-
tion to the approaching time for
filing homestead exemption claims,
pointing out that if such an examp-
tion is not claimed, taxes must 'oe
levied against the property in-
volved regardless ofi' its status. Any
property owner who occupies a
homestead "in good, faith" on or -be-
fore January 1 is entitled to the tax
exemption 'for 1948, said Patrick.
Claimants of widow's or disaibil-
ity exemptions in 1947 also will be
mailed application forms for their
1948 claims, Patrick added, anwl
claims of this nature also must be
field in his office .by April 1 in or-
der to 'benefit by the exemption.
Tangible personal property re-:
turns must be filed between Janu-
ary 1 "and April 1 By eV.ry e person,
firm, corporation, trustee, executor
or others qwning or having cus-
tody of personal property. Proper
forms may be obtained at Sammy's

Tom Byrne Tells of March of Dimes
the Freedom Train
Views Many Historical Documents
Connected With Growth of
Among a considerable number of
Port St. Joe people visiting the
F'reed'onm. Train on its stop at Tal-
lahassee last week was Tom Byrne
and he. gives us his impressions:
It took an hour aned a half to get
fror the end af the line to the
train, and about 40 minutes to go
through the three cars containing
the historic documents of freedom.
But it was well worth the time and
effort, and if you cared to. you were
free to spend more time in the cars
reading the actual texts, many in
the original handwriting. A Unitea
States Marine standing at the en-
trance to the first car courteously
announ-ced as you went in that it
n as inot necessary to stay in line
hitter entering ithe cars.
Documents of freedom were
'ljere., .from a letter by Christopher
Columibus written 4,50-odd years ago
to the .Tap surrender document with
the original signatures, just as it
was signed aboard the Big Mo (the
USiS Missouri). Sailors would be
interested in the log .of the. ship,
which told: in -the. matter of fact
language of navy log books the
historic events of the day.
The scrappiest serap of paper in
the 'whole lot was a scribbled note
!')y President Franklin D. Roose-
velt written at the Cairo confmr-
cihd'e telling o*-lthe .agreement upon
Geneieal Eisenhower as supreme
commander of the Allied Expedi-
tionary Forces in Europe.
But those -greater documents were
there, too; a rough draft by Thomas
Jtiffe.rson of tlhe Declaration of In-
dependence and a finished', copy,
copies of the Bill of Rights. now
contained in the first 10 amend-
ments to the Constitution, Lincoln's
addresses and the Emancipation
Proclamation, bonds 'by which the
government raised money for the
Louisiana Purchase and for the
purchase from Russia of the vast
and rich territory of Alaska. Let-
ters about the Panama Canal, and
letters of the last war.
It is a good thing to remember
at Christmas time the gift. of free-
dom our forefathers here and
abroad made possible for un.

Rising Costs Call for Record Con-
tributions In '48 Drive, Says
The annual March o'f Dimes, the
spearhead of the fight against in-
ifantile paralysis, will be held
throughout the nation January 15
to 30, it was announced here yes-
terday by Joe Mira, 1948 March of
Dimes chairman for Gulf county.-
"The. cost ot fighting polio has
skyrocketed,"iMira said, in pointing
out that rising prices and mount-
ing polio incidence have placed a
tremendous burden on the resources
of the National Foundation for In-
ifantile Paralysis, which this year
celebrates the tenth anniversary or
its founding by F. D. Roosevelt.
Mira has the machinery set up
which he hope-s will make the 1948
appeal a record, demonstration of
:Galif county's active interest in
,helping the. stricken children of the
nation along the road to health.
Chairman Mira, in revealing that
* very community in America was
being geared to make this the
greatest March of Dimes drive in
history, said: "When the March ofr
Dimnes 'goes into action on January
15, more than 500,000 volunteers
from every walk of life will be
translating American ideals into
terms of active assistance and send-
ing a ringing message of hope to
the unfortumte v-it'iel's 'of -hs
crippling di--j' which nas struck
down 80,000 Americans in the past
five years. ,
"This is the democratic way of
fighting a humanitarian 'war against
disease. Every man, woman and
child must enlist in the .fight by
joining the 1948 March of Dimes."

Our Country i Right or Wrong
THE NEW YEAR ENTERS
Men have never known toward what the
world was moving, despite their statements
that it was going in this, that or the other di-
rection. No one can foresee what will occur in
the future. The past stands in the path of the
present, holding us back in our eager desire to
reach ahead into new experiences and new
developments. Civilization has not changed so
greatly as we may imagine. The refinements
of luxury do not belong alone to our modern
times. There is hardly any stage in world his-
tory when the same state of things was not-
flourishing in -the same degree, and even in
approximately the same forms. Human nature
does not change, and in the same degree the
manifestations of the human mind follow pri-
, marily the same channels, though their out-
ward habiliments appear to be new.
The past, present and future are irrevocably
linked together, and this fact is never more
emphasized than on New Year's Day, as one
calendar year becomes history and a new span
of twelve ,months spreads vistas of expecta-
We speak of growth, of changes for the
better-yet with the same breath we deplcre
the deterioration which we profess to see
around us. We contradict ourselves in the ut-
most absurdity and then blandly reTuse to
recognize that we have been slightly ridicu-

endeavor-and then swell with pride because
of the "long way we have come" since one
specific date or another. We talk about the
"great new industrial age when machines will
do all the work" and simultaneously complain
of the tragedies and dangers of unemployment
and a pattern society.
W e do all these things-and yet, perhaps
we are not so foolish as we may seem. The
world goes its way in spite of us. Year in and
year out the earth turns in the heavens and
the sun's rays shine down to give us light and
warmth. Nature pays no heed to our futile
protestations at the injustices of humanity.
The grass continues to grow, the seasons fol-
low one upon the other and animal and man
reproduce their kind to take the places of those
who had completed their part in the great
cycle of life and death. If we did not protest a
little because things are not just as we want
them we would not be human. Only when we
cease the rebellion that leads to new knowl-
edge and new understanding will civilization
We make resoltuions on New Year's' Day,=
most of which we fail to keep. But it is not
that we fail to keep them that is important,
so -much as that we felt the urge to make
them. In those resolutions, from the most
trivial to the deeply serious, is exemplified the
spiritual craving inherent in man which etern-
ally reaches out toward an ideal-nebulous it
is true, but none the less powerful.
New Year's Day is not necessarily a time
for merely "washing the slate clean" and
starting anew. It is a time for making adjust-
ments to life as it exists and must be lived.
Rather than the dismissing of the past, it
calls for an intelligent review of events and
thoughts, with a sane and clear-eyed summing
up of those past influences, their relationship
to the present and a hypothetical promulgation
for the future. Whether anything works out
as expected or not is of lesser import. In de-
termining the possibilities, in allocating things
in their proper positions a calmer,.more intelli-
gent, more honest and more sincere attitude
cannot fail to appear. Consciously or uncon-
sciously we will be starting the new year
