using vital "step-down" zone-not

Perhaps you've heard pleased and proud
Hudson owners talking about this ex-

thing you may have missed hearing:
The key to this amazing new ride lies
'n that area just under the floor of the

comess the "step-down" zone-as illus-

this "step-down" zone is all-important,
because experience has shown that the
'ower to the ground a car can be built,
the better it will handle, the more sta-
oility it will have, the safer it will be,
.nd thus the more enjoyable and com-

plished a near miracle of low-built
streamlining and smooth, safe, comfort-

to be lowered down within it. Recessing

Hudson's use of the vital "step-down"

required years of engineering work, the
perfection of new production techniques,
and millions of dollars in highly spe-

this explains why Hudson alone offers
this new design principle today.

Compass Stolen From Plane
Dr. J. R. Norton states that some-
one, ps:olba'bly a youngster, ripped
the compass from the instruments
panel of his light plane, which he
keeps at the airport. Value of the
compass was $75. ProQbably most
people don't know it, but since all
pIlanes are licensed by the ,federal
government, they come under fe.d-
eral jurisdiction, and it is a federal
offense to tamper with a plane or
remove instruments from them. The
compass probably is of no value to
whoever took it, so if they will
leave it on the doorstep of The Stari
or drop it into the cockpit off Dr.
Norton's plane, no questions will be
asked nor will thesearch for the
guilty party be continued.

FIRE CONTROL IS GOOD PROPOSITION
With owners of 81 per cent of the total acre-
age of Gulf county putting their John Han-
cocks on the petition requesting the board of
county commissioners to call a referendum in
the November general election for the forma-
tion of a county-wide fire control unit, there
should be little question as to whether or not
the measure will receive the stamp of approval,
allowing Gulf county to join with eight other
West Florida counties in a progressive step
to guard their most valuable asset-timber-
Those landowners signing the petition for
Gulf county should keep busy between now and
November pointing out to those who do not
own timberlands the importance *of this issue,
for any registered voter may participate in the
election and it is necessary, in order that the
measure will carry,, that everyone know the
importance of the proposition.
Statistics show that in protected counties,
losses from timber fires are substantially less
than in counties where there is no protection
.term operating. The cost is negligible to the
counties, for most of it is borne by the state
and federal governments. The county's share
of the expense can be paid from existing funds
or. from a special tax not to exceed two mills.
Gulf county, and Port St. Joe in particular,
is largely dependent upon the payrolls provided
-by our timberlands, therefore it is essential
that we all vote for this protection system in
,order to insure that these timberlands payrolls
keep rolling our way.
NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO
A girl in a bar stuffed nickels in a jukebox
for one uninterrupted hour, and during that
time played nothing but a tune called "Civiliza-
tion," known also to some as "Btaigo, Bongo,
Bongo" and by others by the sixfold repetition
of the word "No" with which the first line
ends. Another customer promptly shot her, and
then, for good measure, shot the bartender.
This appears eminently reasonable, but more
careful consideration of the case will convince
the thoughtful that the problem goes deeper
than that. The jukebox, after all, remains ; so
does the record, so do women with nickels.
Furthermore, shootings inside a bar are always
to be deplored-they distt;b the customers,
sometimes break bottles, and are often char-
acterized by poor marksmanship.
If there is any recourse, it must be ap-
proached in a more fundamental manner. One
must proceed back through the woman with
the nickels, through the jukeTox, through the
record, to the original malefactors-the men
\vh(o wrote the song. They are the guilty ones,
for violence was inevitable the moment "Civili-
zation" was published.
Here is where legislation can have a sub-
stantial effect. Let us make it the law that
hereafter the authors of any popular song
must hear it played, without interruption, for
six hours before they will be permitted to
make it public. Such a restriction would make
it unlikely that any such song as "Civilization"
would ever be published again. It would, in
fact, make it unlikely that any popular song
would. be published. Nothing could be fairer
than that.-New York Herald-Tribune.
LET'S BLOW OUR OWN HORN
The Saturday Evening Post (of which we
have been a steady reader since the age of
12 years) recently devoted a lead editorial to
an interesting example of the inefficiency of
socialism. Fares for commercial plane flights
across the Atlantic recently went up $25. The
American airlines involved had been showing
a profit on their overseas business, and they
didn't want to raise the rates. However, the
British and French airlines, which are govern-
ment-owned monopolies, had been taking
heavy losses, and they insisted on the'boost.
Inasmuch as the American systems' right to
fly to foreign nations rests' on agreements
which could be abrogated, there was nothing
they could do but go along and charge the
Commenting on this, the Post suggests that
the American plane tickets carry a legend such
as "This ticket would have cost $25 less if
Socialism were working the way Socialists say
it is." It then goes on to make this o)serva-
tion: "Never do these apostles of Socialism
explain just when and where Socialist econo-
mies have delivered the goods. They content
themselves with pointing out that -a 'planned
society' ought to deliver the goods because it's
a planned society. What's the matter with ask-
ing for details of how they do it; and what's
the matter with blowing our own horn, just
softly, When we do it?"
