Installs Rapid

Battery Charger


Vic's Service Station Now Offers
Motorists Battery Charging
While They Wait

Vic's Service Station, on Monu-
ment avenue, this week completed
installation of a new, sensational
service created for convenience
and saving to motorists.
It is an' amazing machine that
analyzes the battery, in your car
and then proceeds to charge it in
from 15 to 45 minutes without the
necessity of removing the buttery
from the car.
"We have installed this machine
primarily for .the convenience of
our customers," said Vic Anderson.
"It eliminates the inconvenience
and expense of rental batteries by
charging the battery in the car
while the customer waits, or while
the cartis being otherwise serviced.
We think the many time and
money-saving features of this ser-
vice will appeal to our patrons."

To Make Home Here
Mr. and Mrs. Norris Armstrong
and daughter arrived in this city
,ast ,'week from Blountstown to
:-alake their home here.

t (Continued from Last Week)
As our serial goes into its fourth]
Seek, the publisher of The Sen
tinel endeavors to "pass the buck'
to the editor of The Star in regard
to the drowning of our citizens b:
saying that "the editor of The
s Star still insists that the people
s of Port St. Joe have been doomed
- to drowning." However, if we re
n member rightly, the first install
i, ment was based on The Sentine
o publisher's statement that IF the

I built right away we of Port St. Joe
would be drowned like rats in a
t rain barrel.
1 Our contemporary now insinuates
that we do not want the bridge in
t question built. That is decidedly
1 no-t true, as we are just as anxious
to see that bridge built as anyone
f else. but we know that it can't and
won't be built unuil the funds are
available to the road department.
As regards the Red Cross mat-
ter brought into this controversy
Sby our contemporary, all we have
Sto say is that it is decidedly un-
ethical on the part of the publisher
of The Sentinel, who is merely a
wouldl-be newspaper man, to drag
the name of this great humanitar-
ian organization into a small-time
talk fest between two country
newspaper publishers who are rel-
atively unimportant---except, per-
haps, to themselves.

Dim Study Lights

Harm Young Eyes

Proper Illumination Is Vital To
Protect Precious Sight of
Children

Homework, required reading and
long hours of study in preparation
for exams are just as much a part
of school life as is regular attend-
ance at classes. If a child is to
receive high grades, this work at
home must be done without tiring
him excessively or straining his
young eyes.
Proper selection of lighting ar-
rangements are of the utmost im-
portance, both in the. amount of
success he enjoys in doing the
work and in protecting his eyes
from eyestrain. An I.E.S. lamp is
recommended by lighting authori-
ties. This lamp filters out harsh
glare, supplying only restful, safe
light that is kind to the eyes. The
shade, diffusing howl and height
of this certified lamp are all care-
fully and scientifically designed to
provide the best and safest in
modern lighting.
Parents who question the ability
of their present lighting to protect

Employers Must

Give Soldier Job

Not Merely Obligation of Law, But
Moral and Patriotic Responsi-
bility, Says Collins

Urging the co-operation of every
employer in the state of Florida to
see that every returning soldier
Ihas a job when he gets home,
Brig. Gen. Vivian Collins, state di-
rector of selective service, has an-
nounced that the selective service
.system will give the same assist-
lance in finding jobs for Florida
men completing their terms of
service in the regular army, navy
or marine corps as it does to its
own selectees and members of the
national guard
Collins points out that while the
selective service system has in-
augurated a carefully organized
program to obtain civilian jobs for
returning soldiers, -the complete
co-operation of all employers is a
vital requirement for its success-
uil operation.
'it is not merely a question of
obligation imposed by law," said
Collins, "that the selective training
and service act requires former
employers of returning soldiers to
restore them to their former posi-
lions or to positions of like senior-
ity, status and pay. It is a moral
and patriotic responsibility of all
employers to make certain that
these men who have made sacri-
flees to fit themselves for the
armed defense of our liberties be
protected themselves from any un-
necessary hardships.
"This means that every former
employer of a returning soldier
should not only see that he is
promptly reinstated in his former

DEFENSE STAMPS AS
WAY TO BUY BONDS

United States Defense Sav-
ings Stamps provide an easy,
convenient method for resi-
dents of Port St. Joe and Gulf
county to save enough money.
to buy a U. S. Defense Sav-
ings Bond. The stamps can be
bought for a dime, a quarter,
a half-dollar, a dollar or five
dollars. Albums are given
with the purchase of the first
stamp. When the album is
filled, it can be exchanged for
a Defense Bond.
Regular purchase of De-
fense Savings Stamps is a
simple and systematic way to
save money. When you have
exchanged your completed
stamp albums for Defense
Savings Bonds, you will have
put money aside where it will
be safe, where it will grow,
where you can get it when
you need it, and where it will
help national defense.
If you haven't yet started
to fill an album, go out right
now and buy your first stamp
-it will give you a thrilling
feeling of satisfaction to see
your album gradually filling
up. And the biggest thrill will
come when you "trade it in"
for your first Defense Bond.

REAL ROAD TO PEACE
(William Allen White in the Emporia Weekly Gazette)
President Roosevelt has remained silent
with simple courage while he has walked his
steadfast way to peace. His enemies, the iso-
lationists, have abused him by clamoring with
incessant indecency he was leading America
to war. He has let events speak for them-
selves. Now his deeds, ringing down the cor-
ridor of the years, are clarion notes. Now
the country knows that the president has
been walking the only way to peace which
America can follow. Ours is the way of peace
through justice, offering liberty as the basis
of peace, holding up freedom to all rulers and
to all people as the way of life in a modern
world.
These lines are written by one who has op-
posed President Roosevelt in three campaigns
and felt his election for a third term a pub-
lic calamity. Yet today we ask all American
citizens to look back over the course he has
charted in the last four years. Aren't you
proud of your president? Why should par-
tisanship cloud the glory of this day?
The tyrants were afraid to let theirpeople
read the eight peace points which President

Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill of-
fered to the world as the war aims of the de-
mocracies. If the tyrants were sure of their
ground, they would be sure of their people.
The tyrants would be sure that their people
would reject these aims or, if not reject them,
doubt the sincerity of those who offered the
new peace.
But fear is the tyrant's poison. He drinks
it to his death. Some way, despite the cen-
sorship, despite all the barriers erected around
continental Europe, the peoples there will
learn the truth, and the truth will make
them free. When any man, any nation, any
tyrant fears the truth, he is doomed.
The clinching proof that the tyrants are
scared is found today in the boasting, taunt-
ing, arrogant reply of the Hitlerite to democ-
racy's peace aims. Getting tough is a sign
of rough going.

We're not on a gasoline rationing basis
yet, but if it is extended to Port St. Joe, we'd
suggest that the "No U" turn signs be elimi-
nated. In the course of a week such a move
would save probably several hundred gallons
of gasoline to motorists who must drive to
Fifth street or the depot on Reid avenue be-
fore turning. Of course, this would probably
cause traffic congestion and a few accidents,
but look at all the gas it would save!
