Praise for Error
When an error creeps into a
country weekly, the editor gen-
erally is called all kinds of
names-most of them unfit to
print-depending upon the type
of error made.
Last week. The Star came out
with the -head "Meat Rationing
to Start Monday." This occurred
inadvertently. The head was
originally written "Meat Ration-
ing to Start March 29," but it
was just one letter too long that
way, and in glancing at the cal-
endar we casually noted that
March 29 fell on Monday and,
without further ado, changed the
March 29 to "Monday," making
a prefectly-balanced head.
Of course, the body of the
meat rationing story stated that
rationing would begin, on Mon-
day, March 29, but a lot of peo-
ple'overlooked that part, or else
just read the head and immedi-
ately dashed to the market to
lay in a supply of meat. Even
your editor became involved in
the web of his own unintentional
weaving and went out and pur-
chased a 15-pound ham and two
pounds of cooking fat,

meats, oils, etc., had been frozen
as 6-f midnight Sunday, and nu-
merous citizens complimented
Ye Ed on his perspicacity, vision,
clairvoyance and sagacity in in-
forming his readers of the pend-
Those who failed to secure
sufficient meat to tide them over
the week mentally kicked them-
selves for not heeding the warn-
Ing in The Star. Others, who
were not subscribers but who
had heard from their neighbors
that meat was to be rationed
immediately, came in and sub-
scribed to The Star in order,
they said, not to be caught at
the post when other rationing
news is pending.
Verily, your editor for a day
or two was The Man of the Hour
and Is hardly yet emerged, from
the rosy cloud in which he has
been floating around in-or per-
halps we should call it a daze.

Conklin States Workers Hope
To Pass Quota Before
Drive Ends April I
Red Cross workers, with Gulf
county's $2200 War Fundi drive
goal in. sight with $1200 collected
to date, intend to redouble their
efforts and enthusiastically pre-
dict that patriotic citizens of the
county will surpass the quota be-
fore the deadline April 1.
"Our. people know they are giv-
ing this money for their loved
ones in the military service, and
they are responding wholeheart-
edly to this great cause," B. B.
Conklin, drive chairman, declared
"All our citizens will contribute
to the extent of their financial
ability. They will want to be iden-
tified with this service to our ret-
atives and friends in the armea
forces," he added.
Nursing services, blood banks,
blood plasma reserves for emer-
gency *transfusions that save lives
on the battelfields, home services
as contacts for service men away
from home, and .many other wai-
time activities were. pointed to by
Mr. Conklin as exclusive responsi-
bilities of the Red Corss which
must be. maintained.
"The Red Cross is the only of-
ficial contact between our civilian
an d military populations," he
pointed, out, "and it is the one
means of possible contact between
service -men held captive by our
enemies and their families back
home. We can thank God that, to
date, none of our Gulf county men
are in concentration camps of the,
enemy, but before this holocaust Is
ended there probably will be

(Editor's Note: We know our

"One chance in a million': is the
way Billy Coody describes meeting
up with Charles Pridgeon some-
where in North Africa. But we'll
let him tell it as he wrote in a
letter to his sister, Miss Myrtice
Coody of this city:
"I really had a lot of luck day
before yesterday (February 24). I
was walking along coming from
work, on my way to my quarters,
talking to one of the boys who
works with me, when I heard
someone yell, 'Well, if it isn't
Billy!' Now none of the fellows
ever call me Billy-it is either Bill
or Coody-so I knew it must be
someone from home. I looked.
around and there stood Charles
Pridgeon. Gosh, was I glad. to see
him! We had about a threse-hour
talk after we met..
"I sure am glad taht he is sta-
tioned here at the same field as I
am. It makes a fellow really feel
good to be able to talk about home
with someone who knows, the sam,
people that you know.
"You can tell his folks he. is
looking swell and. is alright. I
knew he was over here, but it

Choice and Boneless Cuts Take
More Points; Variety
The Star made a slight typo-
graphical error in setting the head
on last week's meat rationing
story, and the, editor was. cursing
the government for not releasing
the point values in time for publi-
cation. But, to a certain extent,
that redounded, with benefit to
some of our readers who have, an
abiding faith in The. Star, con-,
sidering that what they read in its
columns is the gospel truth-and
consequently that small minority
has sufficient meat to tide them
over this week of "the,'Treeze."
So we present for the benefit of
all, the consumer point values for

ARE YOU CONTENT?
"If you are content with the present situa-
tion and with the present results in industry,
in agriculture and in our civilian life," said
Secretary of War Stimson, "then I suggest
that you go to one of our great army camps
and see our boys in uniform working. I sug-
gest that you read the detailed dispatches
from Tunisia and "the Southwest Pacific
about the fighting efforts of our soldiers. I
suggest that you compare your comforts in
life with theirs, and then ask yourself again
-Are you content?"
Few civilians .in Gulf county can say they
have yet made any all-out war effort. Too
many are still more interested in planning
personal and "social gains" first. They should

How Is Your
Complete List Shows Selfctive Ser-
vice Classifications From
I-A to IV-H
In talking with City Clerk Tom-
linson last w-.ek, the matter of the
various selective service classifi-
caiitns came up and neither Clerk
Tonilinson nor the editor had any
idea how far the classifications
went nor what types were, in what
classifications. So your editor de-
cid-d that if he didn't know any-
thing about the matte-r, there must
be a lot of other people in the
saine boat, sD he wtnt forth ana
dug up the list.
So much attention is now being
given to this matter, it might be
a good idea for everyone to clip
out the following list for future

geffetson 8tandautd Dollazs ARE FIGHTING IN THE WAR
Every time you pay your premium you are not only buying the security
and protection of life insurance for yourself and your family, but you
are also contributing to the war effort, and the stability of our national
economy. Your life insurance dollars, invested in War Bonds and In-
dustry, help to finance war production. They also help to fight infla-
tion because they are not competing for scarce consumer goods.
As a contribution to the war effort, life
insurance underwriters sold War Bonds
in 1942 totaling over 2V2 billion dollars.
Jefferson Standard Agents are Equipped to Give You
Service Geared to Wartime Needs
Under current wartime conditions a sound life insurance program is
even more important than before. Jefferson Standard agents are
trained life underwriters each well equipped to give you wise coun-
sel and timely information that will be helpful in planning your life
insurance program. Consult our local agent
