CHRISTMAS SEALS GO ON SALE
Beginning this week the tuberculosis
Christmas Seal sale committee of the Gulf
County Tuberculosis and Health association,
under the direction of H. H. Saunders, be-
gan mailing envelopes of Christmas Seals to
hundreds of persons in Gulf county. It is an
annual affair that has grown in popularity
and importance in the program of tubercu-
Christmas Seals are not a charity. They
are far more than charity. Through their
sale most of the fight in prevention of tuber-
culosis is carried on. It is a means of per-
sonal protection against tuberculosis for every
individual and family in Gulf county and the
i state of Florida. Every serious case of tu-
berculosis that is stopped means that hun-
dieds of other people will not be subjected
to the dread disease.
The tuberculosis association is the public's
guarantee of an adequate program., of com-
munity protection. Here' is an organization
that does not stick to one pattern of activity.
It changes its; program to meet changing
needs. The developing of" the program has
placed Gulf county in a class by itself in the
effective control of tuberculosis. Most of the
money locally, hag been spent in education
work that has borne fruit both among whites
Tuberculosis still exacts a heavy toll-60,-
000 died last year in the United States from
the disease. It kills more persons between
15 and 45 than any other disease.
The people of Gulf county have always
given hearty support to .the Christmas Seal
drive and there is every indication that this
year there will be even greater support. There.
is need for renewed efforts toward the pre.
vention of tuberculosis now because history
has taught that the disease reaches its high-
est peak during and immediately following
periods c war-and- national -upheaval.
,-THE"V U IT.
The Third War Loan drive went over in
Gulf county in a big' .way; and we feel sure it
gave every citizen a great deal of satisfac-
tion, but we understand that during the past
six weeks the sale of bonds has dropped off.
We should all realize that we have not yet
reached the stopping point, but have gained
only one small objective.
In other words, the bond buyer has con-
solidated a beach head, but the enemy must
still be driven out. We may have to hesitate
a short time until supplies and reinforce-
ments can be brought up, but we must keep'
sniping at the enemy with our regular peri-
odic purchases of bonds and stamps or we
.will be driven back and our hard-won gains
Many a good soldier has lost a fight be-
cause he ran out of ammunition. The Ameri-
can. bond buyer has certainly not run out of
ammunition, and he is going to see to it
that the men doing the fighting do not. So
it is time to start the invasion with dollars.
