Friday's 'Air Raid'
Of Defense Setuip
All Departments Function In
Harmony and Smoothness
During Blackout Period
Port St. Joe merged with the
darkness of the surrounding woods
last Friday night in the test black,
out and "air raid" staged by the
local defense council in the first
full dress rehearsal of the Civilian
Defense organization here,
The yellow flash-meaning that
enemy planes had been sighted
heading in this direction was
transmitted at 8:20, and a call
went out to all members of the
control center staff and to those
on the "yellow" list. Then came
the blue flash two minutes later,
meaning that bombers were head*
ed for Port St. Joe, and all de-
fense workers were contacted and
warned' bo be on the alert.
This was followed at 8:25 by the
red flash and the sounding of the
sirens, and whistles.
In the control center the staff
waited tensely for reports to come
in, all ready, to direct the intricate
machinery of a serious prepared-
ness system. And finally, when the
"incidents" began to come over
the phone, contact was 'immedf-
ately made with res

Our Country Right or Wrong
WHERE DOES THE TROUBLE LIE?
In a great number of ways the war effort
in Port St. Joe has bogged down-or perhaps
we should say that it never really developed
sufficient momentum even to get to the point
of bogging down-which is very discouraging
to those individuals who have been giving un-
stintingly of their time in the various phases
of war work which should necessarily be car-
Let us look at the Red Cross sewing room
first, which has the rolling of bandages as
.the main project. When the room was first
opened, a large number of women enthusias--
tically signed up, and the majority of them
reported for work regularly-for several days
---and then dropped out, until today there are
but perhaps half a dozen doing this most im-
If these women would only realize why
they are rolling bandages, maybe they would
expend a little effort to speed the work.
Those bandages are for cur men in the armed
seviees wthoy. are .going to be wounded,. It
might be 'any young man from Port St. Joe
-your son, your 'neighbor's son, your hus-
band, brother, cousin, fiancee or friend-who
is going to stop a bullet or receive a bayonet
thrust somewhere in the steaming jungles of
the Solomon Islands or on the. bleak desert
or mountain passes of North Africa.
And these wounds will not be pleasant-we
know personally. At times they are jagged
gashes that bleed profusely and are open
doors to infection, particularly if they are no4
attended to immediately. If a fighting man
dies because there is no bandage for him, will
it be the fault of those women of Port St.
Joe who have failed to show up at the Red
Cross sewing room? Perhaps. But those who
have been working some of them almost
every day-can rest at night with an easy
conscience and the feeling of a job well done.
Now let us take the matter of the AWS
observation post in Port St. Joe.
Many .signed up for two-hour shifts and a
goodly., number are still faithfully putting in
their time each week. But a large proportion
who volunteered have put in but one, two, or
perhaps half a dozen shifts since December 7
last. Many failed to even put in an appear-
ance after pledging faithfully to do their bit
in this most important phase of the war ef-
fort. 'It is very discouraging to the chief ob-
server, who has about reached the point
where he is thinking of turning the AWS
fiasco hb':k to the Indians-in this case, the
local defense council. k
And our scrap drive. It's been a shame.
You and I, and everyone else, knows that
there is more scrap material in Port St. Joe
than the little dab that has.been turned in to
date. There's plenty more to be had if our
people would get the lead out of their pants
and do a bit of hustling for a change.
Sure, most everyone is buying War Bonds,
but that requires no effort-merely writing a
check or opening of the wallet. It will take
more than just the buying of bonds to win
this war-it is going to take hard work and
sacrifice on ;the part of every one of us to
keep the Stars and. Stripes flying over our
free land, and the quicker all of us realize
this, the quicker the day will come when we
can return to our normal way of living.
This editorial does not apply to everyone iq
Port St. Joe, for all our citizens are not fall-
ing down on this matter of war service. A
lot of them are carrying more than their
share of the load. However, the majority of
our people here are laying down on the job.
Where the trouble lies, we do not know,
but personally, your editor has about given
up hope of awakening the citizens to their
duty and responsibility during these 'parlous
HOW ABOUT THOSE TIRES?
Starting Sunday, November 22, gasoline
rationing will become effective in Port St.
Joe; along with the rest of the nation which
to date has been free of this restriction, and
as a part of this rubber-saving measure, the
government is making a drive to acquire all
tires in excess of five per car.
This is for our own good in an endeavor to
keep essential automobiles moving until syn-
thetic rubber plants can turn out enough of
their product to keep all cars moving.
This sale of tires to the government is
purely voluntary. You do not have to turn
in your tires in excess of five if you do not
want to. BUT-if you don't, the OPA will
save your rubber for you by refusing to is-
sue you a, gasoline ration book.
So, if you are figuring-on Hoarding a tire
or two, consider well, for the five tires you
keep must be registered, with their serial .f
numbers, when you apply for your gas book,
and if, when you come up for tire inspection
every 60 days, you have a different set of.
serial numbers than those set forth in your i
ration application, you will be in exceedingly a
warm water, t
ON KEEPING COOL c
Paste this in your memory: The German c
submarines sank less than half as much ship-
ping in.August in the Gulf of Mexico and on t
our east coast as they sank in the. months of
July, June and May. The score for August a
was 31, for these other months it was, re- -
spectively, 68, 78 and 61. t
Recall this from your memory: In May,
then June, then July, we were in tears over :
the submarines. They were sinking our ships
with neatness and dispatch. We hopped on l
Secretary Frank Knox. Why wasn't he doing
something about it? Wesoured on the gov-h
ernment. We were losing the Battle of the
Atlantic, we mourned; why isn't something
The subs were sinking our ships faster 9
than new ships could be built. There could
be but one end to that: defeat. The eager c
critics stewed. But now in August, 31 ships t
were sunk and 68 new ships delivered by the
shipyards to take their place.-The Atlanta a
A SUCCESSFUL AIR RAID TRYOUT
The air raid-blackout practice held in Port
St. Joe last Friday night reflects high credit
on all the participants. Our civilian defense
workers-air raid wardens, auxiliary firemen
and police, demolition and repair squads,' first
aid groups and all the rest of the varied per-
sonnel-proved their alertness and efficiency.
Hardly less important was the earnestly co-
operative spirit shown by the public.
Gerge Snowden, head ,of civilian defense
in this area, and his staff are to be congratu-
lated on the results. The experience gained in
such practices will serve us well in the event
of real raids.
These new taxes are going to put a damper
on a lot of foolish spending. A preview of
what is coming is found in the excise tax
which went into effect November 1 upping
the cost of smokes and drinks. The old five-
cent cigar is a six-center now. Bonded whis-
key is taxed 25 cents more a pint.

New Vitamin Combination Brings Hoei
to Childless Homes
Nothing equals'a baby to bring cor-,
plete unity and happiness into the' home:
and tie husband and wife together in -a
stronger bond of enduring love and mu-
tual interest. Divorce is rare in the-homes;
of couples that have children.
Unhappy wives, childless due to relieve-
able functional weakness may now enjoy
the desires and activity of Nature's most
wonderful treation-a normal, fuliy-de-
veloped, vigorous woman. A sensational
new vitamin treatment specifically for
women may be just the thing needed by
the childless wife and quickly bring the-
happiness of a baby in the home. It is,
of course, absolutely harmless.
If you are childless due to functional:
weakness and lack normal vigor-if you'
wish to eliminate one of the gr-at causes;
of unhappy marriages, by all "means try:
Perlex for one week. To introduce this]
