C. J. Sullivan, owner of the St.

business being done in the neigh-
boring city Mr. Sullivan. con-
sidered it a wise move to open a
"second front." Incidentally, it also
saves wear on truck tires.

Scrap Drive Here

Will Extend Thru

Saturday Evening

Everyone Urged To Join In Drive
To Get In the Scrap By
Bringing Out Scrap

Final plans have been made for
the Gulf County Scrap Rally in
Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka,
when everyone will be called on
t.) bring out the scrap in an ef-
foi r to fill an existing shortage in
the nation's supply of vital ma-
terials. Housewives, business men,
farmers and all alike will be ex-
pocted to join in the rally next
Saturday to get out the, scrap-
any item of value to the govern-
mI'nt but of no further use to the
individual-and help to swell the
local contribution. In Port St. Joe
all scarp is to be taken to the
St. Joe Motor company.
It is understood. that the stan-
dard state-wide rate of 25 cents
per 100 pounds will be paid for
scrap metal, and one-half cent per
pound for rubber, however, most
local people seem to agree that
the junk be contributed to the lo-
cal defense council for disposal,
the proceeds to be used for secur-
ing necessary ,material and equip-
ment. But regardless of whether
the .gIpd' s-rionated to the coun-
..cil or,,., e:, money collected by
theL individual, the main idea is to
get out the junk-ALL the junk?
1 little scrap thus far hs. been
brought in from the drive, al-
though much of-fhis class of valu-
able scrap material has been col-
lected locally prior to the present
drive. An additional hunt around
the yard of your home, the gar-
age, the barn and barnyard, tool
shed, and in fact every nook and
corner about thle place, will pro-
duce much scrap material that is
of no value except as junk. This
class of material, although of no
value to the individual, is worth
much to the government in the
present war production program,
when a critical shortage of ma.
trials actually exists.
If you live in the rural sections
around Port St. Joe or Wewa-
hitchka, and have a collection of
scrap to add to the total to be
gathered in Gulf county by. tomor-
row, bring it to town tod-ay or to-
morrow dnd either sell or donate
it to the cause. It will ba grate-
fully accepted up until at least 10
o'clock tomorrow evening.
At any rate, whether you give
or sell your contribution every-
one should join in the drive and
get in the scrap by bringing out
the scrap!

Our Country Right or Wrong

The Gulf county selective service board
last week released a list of names of men
who have failed to report to the board after
receiving their questionnaires, stating that
unless the men reported immediately their
names would be turned over to the district
attorney for prosecution.
It is probable that some of these men are
deliberately trying to evade the draft, others
may have enlisted in some branch of the
service without notifying the board, while
others have merely got a mistaken impres-
sion of what they are supposed to do.
But regardless of the reason (unless these
men have enlisted) they have placed them-
selves in a rather precarious position that
might lead to embarrassment or disgrace,
for Uncle Sam deals rather harshly with so-
called draft dodgers.
It is our advice to these men to report im-
mediately to.their draft board or be prepared
to suffer the consequences-and the const-
quences won't be easy.
And while we're passing out advice, it
might be well to remind selectees that they
carry with them at all times their registra-
tion cards; keep the draft board informed of
your address; notify the board of any change
in status that might affect classification, and
above all to be honest with the board if you
have made a mistake in judgment, for Uncle
Sam doesn't want men in jail-he wants
them in the army.

Opposition to the amendment to be voted
on next November providing for two new
state senators in the legislature, one from
Gulf and .Calhoun counties and one from
Broward county, is already cropping up, par-
ticularly in South Florida, which for years
has been claiming "unfair" representation.
One South Florida paper coming to our
desk says: "The idea is to give West Flor-
ida a senator all for themselves, and to be-
stow the same charity on Broward county on
the lower east coast. Obviously, this kind of
shenanigan, if the people let it get ratified,
won't give South Florida any break in legis-
lative matters."
We'd be willing to bet that if one of these
extra senators were to be elected from the
district in which this particular paper is pub-
lished that the editor would find nothing but
praise for the amendment.
So, as Gulf county will benefit from this
amendment, we would like to point out that
this section has increased in population by
leaps and bounds during the past four years
and that it is our right to have more adequate
representation in the senate instead of shar-
ing a senator with four other counties.

It would be sumpin' if the government al-
lowed beer trucks to be equipped with these
new tires made from alcohol.-Miami Post.

Be sure the information you.get is not mis-
information.-Bunnell Tribune.

The women of the United States, wives,

mothers, sisters and sweethearts, can make
or break the morale of any army, and our
present army is no exception. This fact is
being brought out by information that comes
to the officers.
We would like to point out to the women
of Port St. Joe that news of the baby having
a toothache, or the wife or girl friend in-
discreetly going to the show or a dance with
a male companion, that home finances are in
a tangle or any other such information add
up to making the soldiers feel blue, that they
should be at home where they are needed
rather than in the army or navy where they
are not needed, and so on.
This is a condition which our women can,
Sand must correct. Not all women write ae-
pressing letters to their men folk. Most ot
our women, no matter what hardships they
face at home, are filled with patriotism and
the type of letter their men folk receive is
one calculated to make them fight, proud
that they have that kind of wife, sister or
sweetheart to fight for.
They are made to feel that the country
needs them and that the wife wishes she,
too, might be in there fighting; that if this
war is lost, their home will be gone, and
that this is no time to be complaining about
their personal woes.,
When a man receives that kind of a let-
ter, he feels as though he could take on the
whole German army with one hand anc
beat the living daylights out of the Japs with
the other.
No doubt the disheartening sort of letter
is due to thoughtlessness on the part of the
woman writing it, so we would like to point
out to the women of Port St. Joe and Gult
county the importance of writing letters that
are full of cheer and hope. Depressing let-
ters are worse than no letters at all. No
odubt it is hard to be cheerful when every-
.thing seems to be going wrong, but we are
sure that the women of this section, now that
their attention is called to it, will respond to
the appeal to buoy their men folk with hope
and fighting spirit. The women have as much
to gain in winning this war as have their

Along all of Florida's shoreline, sentinels
are watching day and night to make sure that
no more German agents land, the United
States government has announced.
In order to make the measure as effective
as possible, the government has issued an or-
der forbidding bathers or other persons to
appear on the beaches after dark. So, who-
ever is seen on a Florida beach after dark
now besides members of the patrol has no
business being there and is going to be
checked up on pretty thoroughly.
It is unfortunate that the drastic measure
was not put into effect much earlier, for
there can scarcely be any doubt that a large
number of enemy agents have made their
way into the United States by way of Florida.
This peninsula sticks' out into southern
waters as an inviting landing place. There
are hundreds of screened coves that offei'
good hiding places for Axis agents who
would slip in at night and make their way
into the interior of the state and finally to
other states.
Despite the fact that such a situation
seems fantastic, it is very real, and Floridians
have got to be realistic in helping the fed-
eral government to meet the emergency.-
Lakeland Ledger.

If you haven't yet secured your $5 "use-
stamp for your car, better get it today, for
the internal revenue bureau is checking up in
this section and if they catch you without i
stamp it will cost you a lot more than $5.
