'Of Defense Bonds

Karl Lehman Explains Defense
Savings Plan To Citizens At
Meeting Held In County
Seat Last Week.

A representative group of Gulf
county citizens gathered at. the
-court house in Wewahitchka Thurs-
day afternoon of last week to
hear Karl Lehman, deputy admin-
LiLtrator of the Florida Defense
Savin-; CCouncil, in an interesting
Explaining that he was here to
aquaaint ibe., p-,L'iL- of Gulf county
with the program of defense sav-
ings and that he was voluntarily
devoting his time to the cause,
Mr. Lehman said there were three
main reasons for pushing the sale
of defense bonds and stamps at
this time. First, to instill a sense
of patriotism in every American; .
second, to teach them- to be
thrifty, and third, to guard against -
the possible period of depression
that may follow the present spend- S
ing program of the government.
Mr. Lehman spoke for about a .
half hour, explaining what the de-
fense bonds and stamps are for and I
how to purchase them. He urged
strongly the buying of both bonds
and stamps, as that would be help- L
ing the government finance war

Workers May Get

Jobs In British

Technical Corps

Applicants Must Serve for Three
Years, or for Duration of War,
Whichever Is Shorter

If anyone in Port St. Joe or Gulf
county desires to do some free
traveling and see the world or
at least a portion of it-and get
paid for doing it, they should
call at the local employment serv-
ice office at the city hall and fill
out t he necessary application
forms, for the employment service
is now accepting applications from
workers for strictly civilian, non-
combatant jobs in the British
Civilian Technical Corps in certain
special trades.
Applicants must agree to serve
for three years, or for the duration
of the war, whichever is the
shorter period. They will be re-
quired to go to positions wherever
assigned, somewhere in the United
Kingdom or elsewhere overesas.
The working hours are from 48 to
60 hours per week, depending on
Free transportation is furnished
to accepted applicants from their
home to point of duty, and return
transportation is furnished to those
workers completing their jobs with
a .satisfactory record. Salaries
range from $24.12 to $38.65 per
week. plus free board? and living
quarters and free clothing. Pro-

to service, pensions will be paid.
Any male citizen of the United
States is eligible provided- he is
within the age limit of 1S to 50
years, is physically fit and is quall-
fled to pass the required technical

,The call includes those workers

tions: Radio mechanics, airframe
and engine fitters, machine tool
setters and operators, Instrument
repairers, metal workers. elec-
tricians, ordnance artificers (ma-
rine), automobile mechanics (ma-
rine) and engine room artificers.


While most motorists content
themselves with hitting cows on
the highway, a Tampan on his
way home from a vacation had the
amazing experience of hitting just
about everything else.
In a national park he collided
with a bear; further down the road
he hit a pig; in Georgia he got a
chicken, andl just after crossing the
Florida line he ran over a duck.
Safe at home, he is still scratch-
ing his head and trying to figure
out how in the world he failed to
chalk up at least one cow.

we afford to lose our plumbers, electricians, bricklayers and carpenters? Wouldn't we
feel the pinch too, if no one could get a real estate loan in our town?

Our home town Construction Industry supplies all these necessary services. They've

The coming of the automobile abol-

Laughs In New

Army Life Film

"Caught In the Draft" Is Filled
With a Wealth of Brand
New Army Gags

Notice to all citizens of Port St.
Joe and Gulf county: Sunday and
Monday, if you see people walking
around wearing a silly grin, don't
be alarmed. They're doing their
patriotic duty, accord-ing to Bob
Hone, who has joined the army in
"Caught In the Draft," an all-out
comedy to strengthen the Ameri-
":in lauhi, which plays Sunday
and Monday at the Port theater.
If you're the type nar. finds it
hard to laugh-dion't worry-there
is Hope for you. And with him is
Dorothy Lamour, an assurance that
the picture is in great shape.
Filled with a wealth of brand
new army gags delivered in the
inimitable Hope fashion, the story
describes a rookie's life in the
army. Against a 'background of
running-wild tanks, comedy war-
fare, parachute drops and catchy
new tunes, the film promises to
be an even funnier show than
"Road to Zanzibar."
Bob and Dorothy are assisted by
Lynne Overman (a scrooge) and
Eddie Bracken (a stooge) who do
their best to show the army a few
new tricks. Clarence Kolb becomes
the most irritated colonel in the
whole army when his daughter
Dorothy campaigns to make her
sweetheart a hero.
The rookie gets his cookie, but
not before he proves himself a
hero to her father in a hair-raising
episode that takes place during
army war games. The embryonic
general saves the army from the
last of the Hope-Lynne-Bracken un-
military strategy.

The spoken word is given scant attention;
the printed word is thoughtfully weighed.
The spoken word barely asserts; the printed
word thoroughly convinces. The spoken word
is lost; the printed word remains.

This matter of sixteen Gulf county selec-
tive service registrants failing to make proper
returns to the local board is a really serious
thing. More than likely the majority of these
young men merely failed to notify the board
of their change of address, but the selective
service act provides that registrants must
keep their boards notified of all changes of
In some cases the registrants are not al-
ways to blame. They leave one address and
move to another with the expectation of some
friend or relative notifying the local board,
and the person entrusted to do this neglects
or puts off notifying the board. All regis-
trants are urged, if possible, to go to the
board office at the city hall personally and
advise of any change of address. If that is
not possible, they should write a letter to the
board telling of the change.
Registrants who fail to appear when they
are sent for undoubtedly will be in for many
years of trouble, for judging the future by
the past, federal authorities are not going to
forget delinquencies when the present emer-
gency is -a matter of history. They are still
looking for, and occasionally find, a draft
dodger from the World War.

With only four shopping days remaining in
September, there are still a considerable num-
ber of Gulf county motorists who have failed
to get their 1942 driver's license. During this
month, motorists who present their 1941 li-
cense will be issued the new certificates, but
after next Wednesday, October 1, applicants
must take the drivers' examination.
Many motorists are always slow about pur-
chasing anything necessary for the legal op-
eration of their cars, possibly because they
have been educated to that point by the exten-
sion of tag-buying time. But there is a dif-
ference between buying tags and licenses. It
is understood there will be no extension of
the time to buy licenses, and after October i
the state highway patrolmen are going to be-
gin a checkup campaign to see that all mo-
torists have their 1942 certificates. Those who
are found wanting will be subject to penalties
-and these penalties are more expensive
than the license, which will have to be pur-
chased anyway.
If you haven't secured your license yet,
better do so at once by seeing George Tap-
per here in Port St. Joe or Judge Earl Prid-
geon at W"ewahitchka. Avoid that last-minute

According to dispatches from the front
lines, Russian troops have at times actually
swept supposedly crack German divisions
back in disordered, flying retreat. That must
have come as a terrific shock to reich com-
manders, who were accustomed to conquests
in w-hich the opposition did practically noth-
iii except surrender.

War certainly steps up the construction of
hardships.-Greensboro (N. C.) News.

Some gentlemen prefer blondes-after they

President Roosevelt's doctrine of freedom
of the seas holds that the presence of enemy
submarines and surface raiders in waters con-
sidered essential to American defense and se-
curity will be considered prima facie evidence
of the intention to attack. Just what these
essential waters are is not defined. It seems
to be the president's position that in modern
war it is impossible to establish fixed geo-
graphical boundaries beyond which our vital
interests do not extend. It is, at least, certahu
that the president considers the North At-
lantic, where German warships are most ac-
tive, within the sphere which this nation will
defend. That means that American warships
may convoy merchant shipping clear into
Brltish ports-and that any hostile vessel en-
countered may be fired upon and sunk, if pos-
The order to carry this policy into effect
has been issued under Mr. Roosevelt's im-
mense powers as commander-in-chief of the
military forces of the United States. And
now this country is wondering just what to
expect. The logical thing to anticipate is
more-and more important-incidents of the
sort that occurred when the destroyer Greer
encountered a German submarine.
There is little question but what the Amer-
ican navy is today the most powerful .on
earth, and steadily growing stronger. And
there is little. question any longer but what
it will be used to the limit in attempting to
win the Battle of the Atlantic-a battle whose
field of action is the Atlantic Ocean, and
whose greatest activity is found in the 800-
odd miles of blue water which lie between
American-occupied Iceland and the British
German response to the president's ulti-
matum is that Mr. Roosevelt is taking an un-
tenable stand, and that under the rules of
warfare, Germany is entitled to destroy, with
or without warning, merchantmen carrying
supplies to England There may be some ab-
stract logic in that Nazi position, but there
is grim irony in Hitler's spokesmen talking
about international law. Hitler has proven
time and again that he observes the laws of
nations when, and only when, they suit his
purposes. This is a war to the finish, and
none of the combatants observe international
statutes which were established long ago In
times of peace.

Today, at Apalachicola, the St. Joe High
Sharks play their second football game of
the season, having defeated Carrabelle last
Friday by a 45-0 score on the local field.
While the crowd at the opening game was
not as large as it could have been, it is an-
ticipated that as the Sharks continue the sea-
son that larger crowds will turn out. We feel
sure that Port St. Joe fans are back of their
home team and will give it their unqualified
support. They may not win the championship,
but they are our boys, out there playing a
game, and they deserve all the support we
can give them.
Try to attend the Apalachicola game this
afternoon and all other games this season
in which the Sharks participate. Encourage
the boys all you can, and in that way you will
be responsible for a boost in the morale of
the team. We know that if the players know
they are out there fighting for a group of
fans who are behind them that they will play
much harder. They are good boys and they
want to justify your support. Buy your sea-
son ticket now for the remaining four home
