THIS WE CAN BUY
A man who heads a company like General
Motors cannot afford to whistle in the dark or
give voice to groundless optimism. Too much
is at stake. This is especially true when he is
talking to the company's shareholders.
Therefore we can be sure that much re-
search and careful weighing of the facts pre-
ceded the statement of Harlow H. Curtice at
the recent annual meeting of General Motors
shareholders, in which he took issue with the
belief expressed in some quarters that a truce
in Korea would be bad for American business.
"I do not subscribe to this point of view,"
the GM president said flatly.
The reasons which Mr. Curtice gave for
his confidence are worthy of the attention of
all Americans, especially businessmen. As far
as 1953 is concerned, he said, a cut in defense
outlays would have little effect on business be-
cause of the large balance of unexpended de-
fense commitments about 85 billion dollars
as of Jan. 1.
-Even more interesting is Mr. Curtice's con-
viction that the long-term prosperity of our
country "is not dependent on war or defense
expenditures". He points to the huge backlog of
needed municipal and state improvements which
can get underway when military requirements
slacken and adds that any slash in defense
spending should be followed by a correspond-
ing cut in federal taxes which would release
money for consumer spending and other pur-
The American people have a continuing
appetite for new products," he declared. "Ag-
gressive salesmanship has stimulated their appe-
tite in the past. It can continue to do so in the
Mr...Curtice is a pretty good salesman him-
self. He is offering faith in our American sys-
tem. We'll buy it.
ENTRANCING PROSPECTS FOR
The ingenuity of man knows few bounds,
as can be seen in plans to put Niagra Falls on
half-time and do a little geological plastic sur-
geliy on its face.
Water will pour down at the usual rate
during the day for the benefit of honeymooners
and other visitors, but most of the flow will be
diverted at night. This, plus repairs to help
out nature, will presumably check erosion and
make the falls last much longer for the enjoy-
ment of future generations.
If this project is successful, engineers might
turn their skills to other natural improvements.
The field is wide open.
"Old Faithful", the punctual geyser of Yel-
lowstone National Park, could be put on a two-
hour schedule instead of hourly. It might then
continue its eruptions for twice as long before
But what is most intriguing to mortal, and
feverish, minds these sweltering days is the
dream that a way could be found some day to
hold back some of the arctic blasts of winter
and release them jfidiciously come summer.
Global air-conditioning would make life more
tolerable. -Times Union
A COMRADE'S LIFE IS NOT AN EASY ONE
L'exter Williams has pointed out some o;
the discouragements a Communist party worker
experiences in America, by quoting a report a
comrade is supposed to have written to his su-
perior: "It is becoming increasingly difficult to
reach the down-trodden masses in America. [in
the spring they're forever polishing their bars.
In the summer they take vacations. In the fall
they go to the world series and football games.
And in the winter you can't get them away
from their television sets. Please give me sug-
gestions on how to let them know how oppres-
sed they are." -"Whatsoecer Things"

Speaking of changing times, we
were looking back through some
old issues of The Star and found
where back in 1939 hamburger
meat was selling for two pounds
for a quarter and stew meat was
five cents a pound. Of course when
questioned about this Emnmett Dan-
iels stated that during that time the
average company check he cashed
was for around $29.00. Now it's
above $65.00. Six of one and' half
a dozen of the other. All things
have just doubled.
We are bearing good news for
John Blount. We haven't had the
change to tell him yet, but if he
read Tuesday's edition of the Mo-
bile Press Register he would know
that doctors have now found a
way of treating stomach ulcers
without depriving the patient of a
thing that he might want to eat.
The doctor explains that stomach
acids tend to irritate the ulcer and
prevent new tissue from covering
the ulcer and healing. We ima-
gine that -this will be good news
for chronic ulcer sufferers on milk'
In picking up the Port Theatre
ad this week we noticed that Man-
ager Paul Player had "It Happens
Every Thursday" slated for. next
Thursday and Friday. This is the
story of a small weekly newspaper
like the one here in Port St. Joe
and the struggle and hard work to
get the paper out every week. We
haven't seen the picture yet but
we intend to. We hope it shows all
there is to getting out a weekly.
Night work and all. About the only
time a weekly editor can get any
work done if he is part of his own
printing staff, is after dark at night
when everyone else has gone to bed
or to a show or somewhere. Then
there is the grief of a breakdown
which nobody but a printing ma-
chinery mechanic or a good print-
er can diagnose. These are good
f-r the longevity of country edi-
tors especially when they live as
far from la printing machinery me-
chanic as The Star happens to.
Now you take last week right
here at The Star for instance. At
the start of our first run on last
week's Star, one of the ink rollers
on our big press became overheat-
ed and with the factor of old age
added in with the overheating, the
roller came to pieces. Now our
press is the variety with two form
rollers. We are trying to wheedle
some extra duty out of that other
form roller whichh no self respect-
ing printer would do) until we can
get a new roller from Atlanta. A
process which takes about three
weeks. Then later in *the week, a
cog in the drive gear of the same
press broke, but luckily Andrdew
Martin was able to fix the gear
on -the press and we were off once,
more. Then Friday the switch
burned out on our automatic job
press and naturally the press takes
a special made switch which has
to be ordered from Connecticutt
but still the press must move and
produce. Well the switch was black-
smithed and made to operate after
,a fashion ,and at last report was
still kicking the press over every
once in a while. Then Saturday, a
part came loose on the same press
and since the press was going lick-
ety split, 'the part was broken. We
got rolling again though. Yes, it's
always so much nicer to own your
We have never in our life seen
anything to beat last week and we
don't .hope to either.:
You go see "It Happens Every
Thursday" and maybe you'll see a
bit of what we mean.
If your paper seems a little bit
sketchy for the next few weeks
please forgive it. Our printer wac
called to Chicago unexpectedly on
some legal matters and we are
getting the rag out by ourself.
Mr. Rich, from the super mar-
ket with the same name. presented
us with mess of fresh corn and an
ice cold watermelon the other day.
Our favorite eatin'. There's noth-
ing better than plenty of fresh, corn
on the cob with plenty of oleo and
a good slice of cold watermelon to
wash it down with.
Has anybody found out who's
keeping "Don Pedro's" lemonade
glass filled? The other day Smilin'
Jack got him out of bed and he
came running out of his bedroom
in tthe middle of the night with that
glass of lemonade in his hand.
