Our Country Right or Wrong
D-DAY, H-HOUR AND YOUR BONDS
Most of us here in Port St. Joe were
wakened from a sound sleep at 5:30 Tuesday
morning by the sounding of the fire siren and
the blowing of the whistle at the St. Joe Lum-
ber & Export Company, announcing that "D-
Day" had arrived and that the invasion of
Hitler's Fortress Europa was underway. We
all listened eagerly to the news as it came
over the radio, some of us jubilantly, as it in-
dicated the beginning of the end for the Nazi
hordes; others with anxiety and prayers on
their lips as they thought of their sons and
husbands who were a part of that invasion
All of us probably realize that this moment
is what we have been working for ever since
that fateful day of December 7, 1941; what
we have been' buying War Bonds for; why
we have been going without the luxuries and
sometimes the necessities of life.
Now, as never before, we should buy bonds
-and more bonds-to the limit of our ability
and then beyond that, for the bond you may
have bought ,last week has already gonna rto

war, and the bond you buy today may be the
means of giving some soldier those few ex-
tra rounds of ammunition he may need to
save his life.
Lets' not get over-optimistic, for this in-
vasion isn't going to be any cinch-our forces
are going to suffer reverses, many of our men
are going to be killed, for that is the price
that they must pay for victory.
What price will we at home pay for vic-
tory? Nothing! All we are asked to do is
to LEND all the money we can (at a good
rate of interest) in order that those men over
there may have the tools of war with which
to bring victory that we here at home may
continue to live the life we have been accus-
tomed to, and that those fighting men may
return home to take up their lives where they,

The government is asking the folks of Gulf
county to LEND $170,000 in this Fifth War
Loan Drive. We can't go over there and take
a poke at the Jerries personally, but we CAN
buy bonds that will, indirectly, take a poke
at them for us.
What the editor of The Star would like to
see would be the purchase of a $100 bond for
every boy from Gulf county in the armed
forces-and we mean E Bonds. That would
not be asking too much, so let's set that as
our goal in the Fifth War Loan.

to the people of our county. Last
Tuesday we learned of the second

success. Included i in this second
front and also on the other far-
flung battlefields are boys, from
Gulf county, who are giving their
best for us at home in order that
we might have a better world in
which to live. Theirs is a 24-hour-

D-day has arrived'. H-hour is here.
All our strength is being poured
out on the beaches of Europe in
one gigantic effort to secure our
way. of living. Our men- are on the
order of "forward march." They
do not stop to measure the chance
of losing their lives. Knowing of
the dangers they will be called on
to face, they will be forward
marching every minute, and will
be giving their best. How about
us at home? Shall we be "forward
marching" along with them or
shall we be 'back tracking'?. '
"I say no, we are not going to
back track. We are going to for-
ward, march with our men. The
big attack is on and in order to
do our part we must help finance
it while our men are fighting it.
"We can't afford to sit back and
let the other fellow do it. Show
our men we're behind 'em. Show
them by buying more bonds than
you ever have before. Let us, show
our men that we here in Gulf

BANQUET HONORS WORTHY
GRAND MATRON, 0, E. S.
Mrs. Mabelle Ramey of Miami,
worthy grand matron, Order: of
E-astern Star, state of Florida, was
honor guest Tuesday evening at
a banquet held at the Port Inn pre-
sided over by Mrs. W. S. Sifith,
worthy matron of the Port St. Joe
chapter. Places at the banquet
table were marked with place-
cards in the form of orchids and
favors of small American flags.
Rev. H. F. Beaty of Tallahassee,
a member of the local chapter, de-
livered the, address of welcome,
followed by a toast to. Mrs. Ramey
by Mrs. Smith. Mrs. Ramey re-
sponded in a most gracious man-
ner. An invitation to all 0. E. S.
members to attend a special chap-
ter meeting at the, Masonic hall
was then extended by Mrs. Love
Coburn, past worthy matron.
An initiation ceremony was con-
ducted, at the, hall during which
Mrs.. G. C. Adkins, received the de-
gree of the order. A most inter-
esting talk was given byi Mrs. Ra-
mey which was very appropriate
for D-Day. At the, conclusion of
her talk the chapter stood in silent
prayer for a moment and then the
worthy grand matron closed the
meeting with prayer.
Refreshments were served at
the conclusion of the meeting.
Committees in charge of the ar-
rangements for the visit of the
worthy grand matron included:
Decorating, Mrs. Pauline Smith, ing words and softball "stumpers"

Tuesday evening's game started
off with the Kiwanians chalking
up four runs, and the Rotarians
immediately retaliated by evening
up the score during their turn at
bat. Rotary held the lead momen-
tarily in the second inning when
they scored one run, making the
tally 5 to 4. But from there on
the Kiwanians held their lead,
though they almost lost the game
in the final inning with the score
17 to 14 in their favor. The Ro-
tarians shoved one run across the
plate and had the bases loaded
with two outs. Pitcher Tom Owens
tightened up and held the. batter
to a pop fly, retiring the side and
ending the game, with the score
17 to 15 in favor of Kiwanis.

Last Friday evening the Paper
Makers played4the Rotarians, de-
feating the clubmen by a score of
26 to 8. During the first inning
both teams looked to be evenly
matched, the Rotarians shoving
over two runs and, the Paper boys
five, but from then until the last
inning it was all in favor of the
Paper Makers. In the seventh the
Rotarians, with the score 26 to 3
against them, started a rally, man-
aging to chalk up five counters
before being retired.

Tonight's game, at 8:30, will be
between the Paper Makers, and, a
team" from the' high school. This
promises to be good, as the hfgh
school boys are fast and snappy
players, and as was indicated last
Friday night, the Paper Makers
are not exactly slouches when it
comes to softball.
We do not have the schedule for
next week, but there will be games
Tuesday and Friday evenings.

"That's the way I like to see them," said Gen.
MacArthur when he saw the rows of dead Japs
in the Admiralty Islands. In this war-the
costliest, cruelest war of all time-
our boys must fight with savage
fury. Kill or be killed! And on how
well each plays his part depends the
lives of many of his buddies.
Here on the home front, too, just
cheering the attack on isn't enough.
That's why there's a Fifth War Bond drive on
now, a drive in which you're needed to support
the men on the fighting fronts who are facing
5" WAR LOAN
the most treacherous forces Ameri-
cans have ever met in combat. We on
the home front can't let them down
-and we won't. So resolve now to
at least double your bond buying in
the 5th War Loan drive. This is the
time to do better than your best.
