Sharit Feels That Quota Sel
For War Bonds and Stamps
Will Be Oversubscribed
"The citizens of Port St. Job,
will do- their share toward fulfill-
ment of Gulf county's War Bond
quota," Mayor J. L. Sharit prom-
ised in A statement issued yester-
day. "Chairman S. L. Barke of the,
county War Bonds and Stamps
staff has, advised me that every
county in the United States has
been given a fixed quota for bond
and stamp sales each month. Gulf
county' May quota has been set
at $4400 and I am sure we can at-
tain it, and; that we will not fail
to fulfill our obligations to de-
mocracy throughout the war.
"The people of Port St. Joe have
given men to the fighting forces
of the nation, without stint; we
have given workers to" the war
program, without stint. To make
effective those contributions of
men and of brains we must now
give our wholehearted, support to
the War Bond campaign.
"I predict that the city of Port
St. Joe, which signed up heavily
in the 'Every, American Canvass'
pledge to purchase -bonds and
stamps, will exceed the. quota of
War Bond and Stamp purchases

Our Country Right or Wrong
DANGER IS REAL!
With two enemy submarines known to be
in the Gulf, and probably more than that
number, there is a very real danger to Port
St. Joe, rapidly becoming one of the most im-
portant ports on the Gulf as far as the trans-
shipment of oil and gasoline to the eastern
seaboard is concerned. And, too, we have the
huge 'mill of the St. Joe Paper company
which rates high as a war manufacturing
concern. Both the oil terminal and the paper
mill would be tempting targets to a subma-
rine off our coast.
Such things have happened in other parts
of the world, and since it is possible, it is
necessary for us to prepare to minimize the
damage that would result. We don't want to
'be caught unprepared.
We won't be caught unprepared if the peo-
ple will snap out of their apparent apathy
and take a more active part in our civilian
defense setup. Needed right now are forty
more observers to serve with the airplane
spotting unit, and also needed are more auxili-
ary firemen-both these units being of vital
importance to the defense setup. Women, es~
pecially are asked to sign up with the plane
spotting unit, to serve during the daytime.
No particular training is needed and hours of
duty will be limited to two hours weekly if
enough are willing to come forward.
This matter of civilian defense is,primarily
the concern of each individual, and it should
not be allowed to rest on the shoulders of the
few who are now endeavoring to carry on
as best they can in the face of the unconcern
of the majority.
Perhaps we need a few shells pumped into
our midst or a few bombs dropped from the
sky to awaken us to the fact that "it can
LEWIS IS THE MAN
The voters of Gulf county will go to the
polls on May 26 for but one main purpose-
to elect a represetnative in the state legisla-
ture from this county.
In making their selection we urge all voters
to consider carefully before marking their
ballots. In times like these, when the na-
tion's resources are being strained to the ut-
most, when we are in the midst of a war
which threatens the very life of our state and
nation, our legislators should be chosen care-
fully, with-an eye to their past records. No
man, in these parlous times, should be electect
to the legislature whose character and record
do not give assurance that he is capable,
honest, free of entangling alliances, above
political chicanery and self-seeking.
In many respects, the legislature is the
state's all-powerful official body. It makes
the laws, levies the taxes, appropriates the.
public's money, directs the mode of opera-
tion of the. state, government, regulates
county and municipal governments.
The legislature has the power to make or
mar the future of our state.
With times as they are, no one can antics:
pate what kind of questions will come before
the next legislature, so the best course is to
elect a man who is capable of seeing into and
handling properly any issue which might
arise. And, in order to so handle such issues,
that man must have.had past experience in
the legislative halls and must show from his
past record that he is capable of handling
these matters when they do arise.
Our present representative from Gull
county, E. Clay Lewis Jr., has all these quali-
fications, and on his past record we feel that
he is the man we need right now in Talla-
hassee. His record presents all the qualities
of experience, courage, skill and integrity re-
quired to serve the people of Gulf county best
and to aid in keeping the state government on
an even keel in order that it may be piloted
ever forward in these stormy times.
We feel that in voting for E. Clay Lewis
for representative in the legisalture on May
26, the people of Gulf county will safeguard
the economy, the serviceableness and the
character of their state and home govern-
LAYING PLANS FOR FUTURE
Today most minds are centered on the job
of winning this war-and that is one of the
biggest jobs that has come to any nation in
the history of mankind.' At the same time,
many men are thinking of that day when the
war will finally end and the equally vast task
of reconstruction must be started. They are
laying plans for this world of the future,
based on the hope that ways can be found to
make international peace and prosperity real
and permanent, instead of temporary and
Precisely what we must or will do in the
future is in the laps of the gods. Many think
that there will be great economic adjustments
and we must. find ways to help other peoples
attain the means as well as the desire to buy
part of the incredible flood of goods that our
post-war factories will be able to produce.
They think there will be an end to thinking
that peoples of another creed and color are
inferior to peoples of our creed and color. In
short, they believe that a real start may be
made toward the goal of the brotherhood ot
man something that philosophers have
dreamed about for twenty centuries.
In any event, all of us are now getting a
new and far more accurate idea of the char-
acter of other peoples. We used to think of
the Chinese in terms of incredible poverty,
disease and ignorance-now we have learned
that the Chinese are brave and intelligent
and are led by men who are outstanding in
any company. We used to think of the Rus-
sians as spineless serfs-and now the Rus-
sians have held the greatest military machine
the world has ever known, and perhaps saved
all the United Nations from defeat and dis-
aster. We used to think of Australia as a
rather uninteresting and unimportant "island"
far away in the Pacific-and now we have
learned that the Australians are people very
like ourselves, proud and embattled, and that
the defense of Austalia is vital to our own
So it goes. Whatever comes, the average
American is obtaining an infinitely better
knowledge of the world and the people who
inhabit it than his forebears ever had.
Your quota of War Bonds is 10 per cent or
your income. However, nobody will object if,
in a moment of enthusiasm you go beyond
that quota. Remember, your investment in
War Bonds is not only a patriotic duty but
The 1942 crop of graduates from the Port
St. Joe high school should experience no dif-
ficulty in finding jobs. And if they can't find
jobs, there's always the army, the navy ana
the air corps looking for likely young men.
One thing sure, in a year or so we can
cross the street without looking both ways to !
see if any cars are coming.
To the Democratic Voters
of Gulf County
I am deeply grateful for the splendid vote and support
given me for Representative in the first primary. I
would like to thank the many friends who worked so
hard for me. We made a good showing, we had a clean
and happy campaign, and I sincerely trust that no word
or action of mine created any ill feeling by anyone.
The second primary will be held on Tuesday, May 26th,
and I earnestly solicit the continued support of all those
who saw fit to cast their vote for me on May 5th, and I
sincerely solicit the vote of all those who saw fit to vote
Should you, by your vote, return me to the office as
your Representative, I shall continue to represent all of
the people to the very best of my ability. The right to
vote and select our officers by secret ballot is one of
the most precious rights of a democracy-it is one of
the things that our boys, are fighting for across the
seas-so, let us all take advantage of this right and cast
our ballot for one of the candidates on May 26th.
Thank you again for your favor in the past and assuring.
you of my sincere gratitude for your vote and. support
in the second pirmary, I am,

In 'Song of the Islands' At
Port Sunday Monday
Even though Betty Grable is
noted for her "hot-cha" style of
dancing and much delightful torso-
twisting, few people know that she
spent considerable time, preparing
herself for a career in all of the
various dancing arts.
SI n "Song of the, Islands," the
Technicolor musical which will be
oin view at the Port theatre Sun-
:day and Monday, her role calls
for a combination of hulas with
more. modern interpretations of
South Seas dances. Betty worked
* out her own streamlined! versions
of the hula, but retained much of
the beauty and smooth-flowing
grace of the traditional dance.
But best of all, Betty does a se-
ries o f elaborate "Production
Numbers" which worked out excep-
tionally in Technicolor. She sings,
in accompaniment to her dancing,
the hit numbers which were writ-
ten especially, for "Song of the
Co-starred with Betty are Victor

the cast are'- Thomas Mitchell,

I I Now, and after May 18th (when ceiling prices become effective), all I
A&P Super Markets and A&P Food Stores will continue to give you
real low prices on fine foods every day, just as they have been doing.
The new "ceiling price" regulation will not alter in any way A&P's
low price policy. This means that every day at A&P you will continue
to get' the best foods the markets afford at our lowest possible prices.
And here is another important fact to remember. FOOD PRICES WILL
NOT BE IDENTICAL IN ALL FOOD STORES on and after May 18th.
Prices will continue to differ in food stores on the same articles--just
as they have heretofore.
OUR CUSTOMERS SAVE MONEY
A&P, during the last eight years, has made big reductions in its
operating costs. These savings have been passed along to our customers,
so that today they have 9c more of every food dollar to spend than they
did in 1933.
It is A&P's policy to continue to conduct its business as economically
as possible, thus to give you the utmost, for every food dollar you
spend at A&P Stores.
