lisher of the DeFuniak Springs Herald, "liked

.publisher of the DeFuniak Breeze.
"Lark" will be missed in newspaper circles,
as his homely, outspoken editorials were
looked forward to eagerly from week to
week by those editors on the "exchange" list

ber of his editorials have been reprinted, and

for, but filed away in our morgue with the
expectation of printing them at an opportune
We trust that Editor Storrs will hold open
a column each week for the exclusive use of
"Lark," for we would hate to think that no
more could we read of his fishing trips, his
rheumatics, his love of chitlins and the many
other topics that were dear to his heart.

FIRE IN THE FOREST
Right now, with all the rain were having
in this neck o' the woods, -there isn't much
chance of starting a woods fire, but regard-
less of that fact, we should always remem-
ber that one little spark could lay waste the
treasure of a generation.
It is best not to smoke while passing
through our friendly forests, but if you must
smoke, be sure that the match is out, and
that the ember of the cigaret is extinguished
before you toss it away. If you're out for
a picnic lunch or on a hunting or fishing ex-
pedition, but sure to put out your camp fire
with water-to the last spark.
Remember that you are only one of us
who is seeking the comfort and coolness, the
green recreation of our forest areas. It is
vour forest. It is the bequest of happiness
and health and healing you should leave to
your children's children.
Be careful of fire in the forests. It takes
but a little thought, a little effort-and it
pays magnificent dividends to you, to every-
one else, and to posterity.

OFFICE SEEKS MAN
Up in Crestview a paid advertisement ap-

*But what is extraordinary is the fact that
the advertisement was not signed nor placed
by the candidate himself, but by almost fifty

Those Russians may not be as dumb as
some people would have us believe.
Sure, they signed a non-aggression pact
with Hitler, but they signed it with a pur-
pose in mind. If and when Europe goes to
war, Russia will stand by and watch the
slaughter, and when the warring nations have
become weakened and sick of war she will
stir up rebellion amongst their peoples and
'ring about a social revolution with the brand
of communism on it.
They're not so dumb!

their stuff at the fireman's ball the other

watching a nudist camp through a pair of
binoculars and saw one of the members of

The borrowers under the new

Dedicated first of all to those who build, Labor Day
serves to remind all of us of the necessity for build-
ing well. America cannot afford the waste and loss
that follow ill-planned construction or the fulfillment
of ill-laid plans. And what America cannot afford,
none of the individuals who make up her great pop-
ulation can afford.
For constructive, forward steps, there is always, in
America, the means of accomplishment. The prog-
ress that comes with each new accomplishment is
the result of the co-operation that built this country.
As long as it remains, progress cannot be stopped.

Tihe mirth-making talents oI
Ginger Rogers are developed to
new hilarious heights in "Bachelor
Mother," playingSuinday and Mon-
day at the Port theater.
Miss Rogers enacts the role ot
i department store salesgirl who
suddenly becomes a synthetic
mother. She finds an abandoned
>aby, and despite her frantic de-
nials, the whole world believes
she is the tot's mama. When she
plans to abandon the baby her-
self, her boss informs her that he
will so ostracize her in the busi-
ness world that she will never
have a chance of earning her livt.-
Hopelessly, Ginger accepts th,
task. When a romance springs up
from her boss' constant meetings
with her under the guise of assist-
ing her in bringing up the baby,
Ginger's self-appointed jealous bo-
friend apprises her boss' father
that his son is actually the in-
fant's father. He demands mat
his son marry Ginger so that he
can rightfully assert his role aa
grandfather to the bay, ana the
story assumes 'hilarious slde-split-
Matching Ginger's splendid por-
trayal is that of her co-star Davia
Niven, seen as the boss. With
Charles Coburn as the frustrated
grandfather, Frank Albertson an
Ginger's green-eyed admirer, E. to.
Clive as an acidulous butler, Er-
nest Truex and Ferkle Boros in the
featured cast, "Bachelor Mother"
boasts a superb acting roster.
