SGT. ANTLEY LANDS IN
TYNDALL GUARD HOUSE
Sgt. E. L' Antley, well known in
this city, where he was employed
by the St. Joe Paper company,
arrived in Panama City last Sat-
urday on a two weeks' furlough
which he hadi been looking forward
to for months. Sunday night he left
the neighboring city and headed
for Port St. Joe to call on friends.
When he was stopped at the
highway barrier at Tyndall Field
he discovered that he had lost his.
furlough papers, and there was
nothing for the MP on dusty to-
do but send him to the guara-
house while officers at Tyndall
got in touch with Fort Sam Hous-
ton, in Texas, where Sergeant Ant-
ley, is stationed.
So the sergeant remained incar-l
cerated in the- guardhouse while
the hours of his priceless furlough
ticked away until Tuesday after-
noon, when a telegram was re-
ceived from Fort Sam Houston
stating that the unhappy sergeant
could be released "on his own."
THE ARMY'S A GOOD LIFE,
WRITES FRANK CHILDERS
Our appeal in this column three
weeks ago for letters from the men
in the service seems to be getting
a few results. We are in receipt
of the following from Pvt., Frank
Childera at Fort Bragg, N. C.:
Dear Mtr. Smith-Fort Bragg is
a nice place to be in, ibut at times
it is-very hot, though it does rain
practically every otbe.r xcy and
that cools off things somewhat.
We use the 155 m.ai. howitzer,
which is capable of delivering a
lot of hell in a .specified place. We
have quite a few here as well as
prime movers and! light vehicles.

MUST BE ENDORSEDf
Word from Washington is that
OCPA is developing a plan designed
to bring about a major increase in
civilian ifeat rations. The -plan has
not yet been adopted' officially and
it still must hurdle the highly con-
troversial issue of putting price
ceilings on live hogs atid cattle.
OPA wants to increase meat ra-
tions primarily to destroy the. black
market and other illicit activities
in the meat field; and in order to
do this it will be necessary to
regulate livestock prices. The plan
is opposed by congressional farm
spokesmen, the meat packing in-
dustry and' livestock raisers.
The War Food Administration
has allocated' to civilians 70 per
cent of next year's canned vege-
tables and soups and .3 per cent
of the prospective fruits and juices
which will provide a somewhat.
smaller per capital quota than this
year's allotment. Therefore it be-
hooves all housewives' to can all
the fruits and vegetable's they can
lay their hands, on now in order LU
assure a balanced diet for their
families next year.
One, cheerful note in. the ration-
ing program is the fact that coffee .
will be removed from the list o0
rationed commodities c' August 11
due to the fact- that more coffee
is coming in from South America
since the submarine, menace has
been eliminated from the Carib-
bean. Also, there are official ru-
mors that ration restrictions may
be removed soon from sugar.
The War Production Board plans
to clamp down on the output ot
expensive fabrics and concentrate
priorities to stimulate mass pro-
duction of low-priced clothing. it
is pointed out that we need not
have clothes rationing if all frills
are done away with and sheer vol-
-So you women who have a choice

bother us much.

Our Country y Right or Wrong
NOW COMES THE FEAST
After the famine comes the feast. The po-
tato famine is definitely over. Reports from
all-parts of the country indicate that the situ-
ation is completely reversed and that we now
have plenty of spuds-more than enough if
we don't use 'em up promptly.
It's Old Man Weather's fault that a few
weeks ago homemakers were crying for po-.
tatoes and that now there is a surplus. All
through spring, cold weather held potatoes
back. With the arrival of summer, this year's
bumper crop matured" for market. And no
wonder "there are so many. Plantings for, the
entire country are 13.6 higher than last year.
These new potatoes with their thin skins
are much more delicate than late potatoes and
don't take well to storing. They're delicious
eating but perishable, so they should be ap-
pearing on your table every day now. Sup-
plies of this variety are quite heavy now, and
late summer and fall will bring different, less
Unfortunately, a great many dieters have
brought the spud into ill repute. "Fattening,"
they say. It's true they're higher in calories
than many other vegetables, but they're far
below candy, cakes and rich desserts. Eaten
in moderation, potatoes shouldn't cause bulgy
waistlines. They have a great deal of food
value to make them a "must" in the diet .
vitamin C, thiamine, iron and protein. And
don't forget to cook them with their jackets
on, because the richest supply of vitamins and
minerals is found right under the skin.
They're good ration-stretchers, too. Com-
bined with a small amount of leftover meat,
with cheese or eggs, they're a, main dish that
rates a lusty cheer from the family. And, at
all present reports, they're low enough in
price to make them a real economy dish.
Naturally, you'll want to serve them in suf-
ficient variety to keep up the family's enthu-
siasm. Here are a few suggestions:
Baked: Stuffed with cheese; stuffed with
leftover meat and a little onion; topped with
pork sausage; diced baked potatoes.
Boiled: Parslied or minted; with onions or
cheese; with 'green beans and bacon; creamed.
Creamed and escalloped: Potatoes in cheese
sauce; potato and fish pie; scalloped with
green beans and onions, or with ham, pork oa
lamb chops; with cabbage and cheese sauce.
Fried: American fried; hashed brown; cot-
tage fried; lyonnaise; French fried; potato
cakes; potato and liver cakes or fish cakes;
potatoes O'Brien; potato croquettes.
Get the idea? This is just a starter-our
tongue is hanging out now. There are as
many ways to serve spuds as there are days
in the year. So pitch in and start eating that
bumper crop before it spoils.
Now that car tires are being made of golden
rod, wonder what the hay fever sufferers. will
do who own cars ?

Canned Food In View." Yep, it comes in
glass jars now. '.,
END OF THE 'NYA
At long last one -of the numerous "emer-
gency" agencies of the federal government
has actually been done away with.
The National Youth Administration, born
during the depression, has been denied fur-
ther appropriations by congress and conse-
quently must be discontinued. But it did not
go out of existence without a stiff fight, for
those thousands of job-holders put up all
kinds of arguments and pulled all available
political strings to hold on to their easy pay-
The NYA probably served a good purpose
during the depression years when it trained
youths for useful work while they were paid
$15.90 a month, plus subsistence and medical
care, but that is no longer necessary, since
industry is training its own workers-and do-
ing a much better job.
Now if congress will refuse appropriations
to several more "emergency" bureaus that
have outlived their usefulness, it would take
a considerable load off the shoulders of the
taxpayers and allow several millions Q.dol-
lars now spent uselessly to be diverted lf the
all-out war effort.

the governorship of Florida. They are Lex

ROTARY CLUB HEARS OF
MANY USES FOR WOOD
Basil E." Kenney, president of
the state board, of forestry ann
parks, gave a talk on wood and
woou products to fellow members
of the Rotaryl club at the regular
meeting held at the Port Inn on
Thursday noon 'of last week.
Progress made in the use of
wood products in prosecution or
the war effort was covered: by Mr.
Kenney, it being brought out the
only enemy 'bombing action taken
against the continental United
States was in the form of incent-
diary bombs dropped in the for-
ests of Oregon, which were found
and placed under control by forest
rangers. This action presumably
was from a small plane launched
from an enemy submarine.
Mr. Kenney outlined products
being -produced from wood com-
mon to every household, such as
vanilla flavoring, molasses, .shoes,
women's clothing, sugar, starches,
and numerous- other articles. He
also stated that the speediest and
most effective planes now being
used, by our armed forces are
built principally of plywood.
The matter of broadening uses
of wood as, one of our few un-
limited natural resources through
reforestation was of particular in-
terest to the club members, since
the future ortPort St. Joe is so
closely related to its development.
Plans were announced before au-

Pumps are empty, drives vacant... the boys have gone to war.
Wherever such a scene of inaction may have replaced
the busy corner of a short time ago, accept it as evidence
that many men of this Company have changed their uni-
forms for a while.
Not far away you will find another Standard Oil
Station--open, busy, trustworthy-worth going an extra
distance to find. If not all Stations in your locality can
overcome the "man-power" question, please understand
that we strive to keep standards high-too high to perriit
Soon, we hope, conditions will favor and make possi-
ble old-time operation. Until then let the Station that is
"closed for a while" be a signal to you that Standard Oil
men are in the thick of the fight.
