of poultry produced in the state.
At present milk is brought into
Florida but previous to the war

Our Country 7- Right or Wrong
LOOK BEFORE YOU SHOOT
The cracking of rifles and the boom ot
-shotguns will be heard in Gulf county Wed-
nesday when the fall hunting season gets un-
der way and hunters are urged to take a good
look at the game before they pull the trigger.
Remember, in your haste to acquire a syl-
van pot roast or a liberal supply of hamburger,
that deer don't wear red, that they walk on
four legs and do not resemble a man in any
way, shape or manner. The most critical deer,
we believe, would agree with us in accepting
the accuracy of this statement of manifold di-
vergence. A deer, for instance, is much more
graceful than a man even a man who has
.been taking rhumba lessons for three months.
-And remember, too, you nimrods, that a
deer has never started a forest fire with a
match or a cigaret. And a deer, of course, has
neyer served up a man, with currant jelly and
sprigs of parsley, even at a stag banquet. In
fact, the ways in which deer differ from men
are so many and so acute that we see no rea-
son at all why there should be a single hunt-
ing season accident in Gulf county.
A THOUSAND YEARS TO GO
Are you concerned about the nation's oil
resources? Well, you might as well put off
your worrying for, according to oil experts,
there's no danger of a shortage of crude oil
at least until the year 3026!
There are many reasons why our oil re-
serves are expected to last for an indefinite
period. For example, large additional reserves
of crude are constantly being found through-
out -the United States. In fact, with all the
test holes being put down right here in Gulf
county, the latest being the one about six
miles south of .town now being drilled by the

producing area. The development of produc-

This goes back to the saying that more oil

of barrels to our potential supply. So don't
worry about it-at least for a thousand years!

The new commander of the American Le-

not to buy or build now, saying that they can-

what seems to be a failure to.,provide houses
for veterans at reasonable cost. Just how this
