Our Country Right or Wrong
WHAT CAN I DO?
In the recent registration of men between
the ages of 20 and 45 there are a lot of them
in the upper age bracket (including ye ed)
who are disbarred from military service on
various counts. These men, a lot of whom
did what they could in World War I, are
asking "What can I do to help win the war?"
There are a number of ways these men
can aid in national and home defense.
They can, if they have not already done so,
register With the Gulf County Defense Coun-
cil. We feel sure that Chairman George
Snowden and his lieutenants can find a place
for them, since the ranks of the council will
be depleted from time to time by calls from
the local selective service board.
They can buy defense bonds and stamps,
and pay their income taxes-if any-gladly
and promptly. Our country needs a constant
flow of dollars for defense.
They can support the Red Cross and the
U. S. O. Our boys, the ones we love and
who love us, need the helpful ministration of
the former and the cheer provided by the
But the biggest thing of all these men ca,
do is to keep their chins up, a smile on their
lips and their hearts aflame with the spirit
of democracy, right and truth as they see
the hordes of treachery slowly advancing in
an effort to crush every element of Christian
Let them remember that even though the
bombs may fall and do material dariage,
nothing can destroy the iron will for free-
dom, justice and right that is in the heart
of every right-thinking American!
BUNDLES FOR CONGRESSMEN
From all over the United States storms of
'protest about the members of congress vot-
ing themselves a pension have been flooding
into Washington. Clubs have been organized
to send "Bundles to Coniress"-to help the
poor, starving members. Of course, this is
just a joke-but behind the joke people are
It is reported that some worried congress-
men went to the president to ask him his
advice about how they could get off the spot
they had made for themselves. The president
is supposed to have told them that if they
didn't want the pension they didn't have to
apply for it, or accept it. That's not the
point. The sincere members of congress
wouldn't accept the pension anyway. The
ones who would apply for the pension are
the ones who would be least entitled to it.
At a time of national emergency, when
there is such a need for national unity and
confidence in government, it is very unfor-
tunate that the pension bill was passed. It
is very important that it be repealed at the
very earliest possible moment.-Plant City
Wisdom is knowing what to do; skill is
knowing how to do it, and virtue is doing it.
Volunteer members of the Gulf County De-
fense Council should take this quotation for
SAVE YOUR PAPER
Conserve paper! That request from the
government is being stressed more and more
every day. Even before we were in the war
the government was using one-third of the
nation's paper box production for arms needs
and now military demand is rapidly increasing.
On top of that, the armect forces have many
other important uses for paper of all kinds.
The cheapest forms of paper, such as news-
print, can be reclaimed and made into boxes
and other articles.
When you do your shopping, get along
with a minimum of wrapping. Don't ask for
a bag when an item is already packaged.
Don't ask for separate bags unless necessary
-or any bag at all if you have only a few
items to carry. Take groceries in cartons
when available-then use the cartons as re-
ceptacles in which to save waste paper at
home and it will be easier for the Boy Scouts
to carry away when they make their regular
Don't think the stores you patronize are
being stingy when they stop using paper,

they cut down on paper use, they are co-
operating with the government.
Every family in Port St. Joe can help' In
the paper conservation drive. Save all-you
can and call for the Boy Scouts when you
have a substantial amount.
AGAIN WE SAY-BUY DEFENSE BONDS
Everyone has had the "Buy Defense Bonds"
slogan impressed upon them from all sides
and from all angles, but we must keep on
emphasizing the fact for our participation in
this war makes the purchase of immense
quantities of defense bonds and stamps all the
We' cannot finance the war through taxes
alone-the burden would be too great. Nor
can we finance it by selling more and more
regular government bonds to the banks. The
financial burden that wa? makes unavoidable
must be largely absorbed by the people by
ordinary American men and women in all
walks of life. The defense bonds and stamps
offer us all, whatever our financial status,
the chance to help buy the guns and the
planes and the great warships that will even-
tually destroy our enemies. And, unlike direct
taxes, offer us a tangible return on the
money we put out.
Buy as many bonds as you can afford. Put
your spare dimes and quarters into defense
stamps. This is every American' s'war-and
every American must do all he can to see it
through to Victory.
A warning to sugar hoarders: Price Ad-
ministrator Leon Henderson warns that
when sugar rationing becomes effective-
about the middle of March-anyone with
more than two pounds of sugar per person
will not be allowed to purchase sugar until
the hoarded amount is used up, and stamps
equivalent to the amount tucked away will
be removed from the sugar coupon book. And
don't think Uncle Sam won't know who has
hoarded sugar, for your groceryman will be
required to tell him!
In a joint announcement, Secretary of Ag-
riculture Wickard and Price Administrator
Henderson recently said that food stocks in
this country are abundant, and that there is
no need or justification for hoarding or ab-
normal buying. Consumers should remember
that. "Scare buying" is one of the surest
ways to produce price inflation. Temporary
shortages are created as demand runs ahead

Confined to his chair, he makes
his stay to dinner something to be
