Our Country ` Right or Wrong
GREETING! I SALUTE YOU!
I AM your friend and my love for you goes
deep. There is nothing I can give which
you have not got; but there is much, very
much, that, while I cannot give it, you can
take. No heaven can come to us unless our
hearts find rest in today. TAKE
HEAVEN! No peace lies in the future which
is 'not hidden in this present little instant.
: TAKE PEACE.
The gloom of the world is but a shadow.
'Behind it, yet within reach, 'is JOY. There
is radiance and glory in the darkness, could
we but see-and to See we have only to Look.
I beseech you to look.
Life is so generous a giver, but we, judg-
ing its gifts by their .covering, cast them
away as ugly or heavy or hard. Remove the
covering and you will find beneath it a living
splendor, woven of love, by wisdom, witin
power. Welcome it, grasp it, and you touch
the Angel's hand that brings it to you. Every-
thing we call a trial, a sorrow, or a duty, be-
lieve me, that Angel's hand is there; the gift
'is there, too; be not content with them an
Joys. They, too, conceal diviner gifts.
Life is so full of Meaning and Purpose, so
full of Beauty-beneath its covering-that
.you will find earth but cloaks your heaven.
Courage then to claim it: that is all! but
courage you have; and the knowledge that
we are pilgrims together, wending, through
unknown country, home.
And so, at this Christmas time, I greet you
Not quite as the world sends greetings, but
with profound esteem and with the Prayer
that for you, now and forever, the day
breaks, and the shadows flee away.

UNTIL THE BELLS RING
We wish to call to the attention of mem-
bers of the Gulf County Civilian Defense
unit that methods of combating fires set by
incendiary bombs have undergone drastic
change. This is because incendiary bombs art
war weapons, and war weapons are con-
stantly changing. Present fire bombs usually
contain delayed explosives which detonate
long after impact. Former practices in hand-
ling these missiles are exceedingly dangerous
because they require a close approach by the
Director James M. Landis of the Office ot
Civilian Defense, observes that: "Use of a
jet of water enables the operator to work at
a much greater distance than the 'short
range' methods employing s a n d, other
smothering agents, or a spray of water. Sand
in the form of bags or mats cannot be de-
pended upon, because these bombs, upon ex-
plosion, have a greater fragmentation effect
than the explosive incendiary bombs formerly
used. The public should be warned against
the use of, all such smother agents as 'bomb
extinguishing' powders; also against such de-
vices as scoops, grabs and snuffers% They
are entirely without merit, and may endanger
the lives of persons who depend upon them.
The use of spray and ;sand is no longer
recommended because the .possibility of frag-
mentation makes it too dangerous to approach
the bomb sufficiently close to apply them."
So no longer are we required to keep a
bucket of sand and a scoop under our beds.
A direct stream of water is now recom-
mended as the best means of controlling an
incendiary bomb. An ordinary garden hose is
suitable, but stay as far away as possible and
assume a crouching or prone position behind
the best available cover.
Enemy raids are a constant possibility.
Vigilance can not be permitted to fluctuate
with the war news. Remember, a raid may
come when it is least expected, and with the
gasoline emergency now prevailing on the
eastern seaboard, Port St. Joe with its vital.
gasoline storage and pumping facilities which
aid in supplying the vital fluid by pipeline
for trans-shipment to our armies in Africa,
would be as liable for a bombing as any other
eastern point. So until the bells of armistice
ring, the public, as well as auxiliary firemen
and wardens, must remain grimly alert.
A lot of men today making $100 a week,
who never made over $30 a week before, and
who are spending it faster than they make it,
are going to realize when it's too late, thai
they should have put at least $50 a week
into War Bonds.

For freedom of country we love.
On the battlefield the soldiers are
And Old Glory is waving above.

And 01b1 Gloryi is waving above.
The Star Spangled Banner is wav-
The planes are. in the sky.

And the boys will all come home;
We will have the right to say:
"Old Glory is our own."
Then to keep her forever waving
We must fight! Fight! Fight!

T ODAY, we celebrate again the ageless
and priceless spirit of Christmas. Not
Christmas "as usual," but a day that
brings now, more than ever, a keener appre-
ciation of its real significance of gen-
erosity and good-will and the hope of peace.
Part of our duty at home is to keep those in-
stitutions and ideals alive which are the foun-
dation of our way of life to be an
inspiration for those who are far from home
fighting on foreign shores. And today, we
have more reason than ever to observe
Christmas with a new awareness of its im-
portance as a spirit which makes life worth
living this day and every
.day. We hope that those of your family now
in the service of our country were fortunate
enough to be able to return home for Christ-
mas, and if not whoever they are,
wherever they are the hearts ot
every American are with them.
So let good fellowship run high, and let the
holly and the mistletoe permanently bind our
hearts, to hold the spirit of Clristmas thrun-
out this and ,every year.
And here's a friendly greeting from our house
to yours and our sincere best wishes
for a Merry Christmas!
