.HARRY D. JOHNSON IS
WOUNDED IN ACTION
Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Johnson of
this city have received word from
the war department that their son,
Pfc. Harry) D. Johnson, was slight-
ly wounded in action in France on
November 15. Word has since been
received from Harry from a base
hospital somewhere in England
that he happened to be too close
to a German, shell when it ew-
ploded, and he got a ".- *i of shrap-
nel in his leg. He s.t!:, further,
however, that the slhrapn'el has
been removed and that he is Im-
Johnson, a mortarman wibh an
armored division, entered France
on the heels of the invasion In
June and saw plenty of action up
to the time, of being wounded. His
brother, James, is also in action
in Belgium, and another brother,
Paul, is somewhere in Italy with
the Air Force.
Harry was employed in the ma,
chine shop of the St. -,Joe Lumber
& Export Company prior to enter-
ing the service, and his friends
here are glad to know that his
wounds are not serious.

Tonight at 8 o'clock the curtain
at the high school auditorium wilt
rise on "Tiptoe Inn,," a three-act
comedy presented' by the junior
*lass. A preview of the show in-
dicates that those who view it will
get .many laughs andi an evening
of real enjoyment.
While Olivia, an ambitious maid,
is hypnotizing everyone---even her-
self-Aaron, the handyman, is' busy
detecting. Betty Waller and Gale
Traxler very] aptly play these roles.
Rhoda and Howard Stillman, Lo-
lita Winthrop and Armand Duvall
supply the romantic angle as well
as quite a bit of confusion with
secret marriages. J. J. J., Pokey
and Governor Winthrop, the be-
fuddled parents, certainly keep
their children, along with Mr. ana
Mrs. Abbot, who are! the proprle-
tors of Tiptoe Inn', wondering what
will happen next. And the play
wouldn't 'be the same without Miss
Hodson and her old-maidish ideas!
The cast of characters follows.
Rhodia .Stillman, a young wife...
......... ..... Frances, Rhames
Howard Stillman, Jr., the young
bridegroom .... Wayne, Taunton
Lolita Winthrop, the governor's
daughter ....... Mary David'son
Armand Duvall, a stage star....

Our Country Right or Wrong
KEEP ON BUYING 'EM
Chairman L. P. Sutton, head of the War
Bond drive in Port St. Joe, told us yesterday
that the sale of E Bonds here was lagging
sadly and it looked like we would not make
our quota. We remarked that it looked like
the people here didn't seem to realize that
they were not giving their money, but only
loaning it and buying a share in America. All
of which reminded us of this story:
Years ago an American, an Englishman
and a German, visiting an Oriental country,
were granted an audience by the local poten-
tate. Addressing the Englishman, he said: "1
understand that you are a subject of the king
of England." The Englishman bowed and re-
plied: "Yes, your highness, and I am very
proud of it."
Turning to the German, he said: "And you
are a subject of the kaiser?" Clicking his
heels and bowing stiffly, the German replied:
"Yes, your highness, and very proud!"'
Adressing the American, the potentate said:
"And you are a subject of the United States
of Americah?" Whereupon the American ex-
claimed: "Subject, hell! I own part of the
United States of America."
And our moral is this: If we don't win this
\var-which we won't unless we all buy war
bonds to the limit of our ability-we will nz
longer own a part of the United States of
America, we'll be working for the Germans
and the Japs.
Our guess is that when the boys come home
and gather together to tell of the things they
helped to do to win the war, the worker who
remained at home in security and worked fo-
good wages while living with his family and
friends, is not going to be bragging much
about how he struck in this and that plant and
held up production on vitally needed war ma-
terial because some member of his craft wa3
fired because of loafing on the 'job. Punta
