Men who make $2000 a year or over

if they did they, would lessen the bur burden

The Red Cross ladies of Tampa
have set on foot a move that should
be followed in Ocala, and that is when
their two companies of the Second In Infantry
fantry Infantry leave for Camp Wheeler to
give each soldier a well-filled lunch
box. The boys will be on the road
from twenty to thirty hours, and as
troop trains run on uncertain sched schedules
ules schedules they may not always be able to
couple up with a ration when they are
hungry. It is probable that the
friends and relatives of most of the
young soldiers will see that they are
supplied, but it will be better to have
an organized plan, so none will be
neglected. They may move any day
next week, so anything that is done
should be planned for at once. There
are 140 men in the company, and it
will be easy to supply them with 140
boxes of lunch if the proper arrange arrangements
ments arrangements are made. It is almost certain
that they will be given plenty of
good, wholesome food at Camp
Wheeler, but they will likely be shy
on home delicacies till the war is
over whenever that is.

"Community interests," and the oar
floating away from it is labeled "co "cooperation."
operation." "cooperation." Under the cartoon is the
following pithy advice:
"A community without co-operaticn
is like a boatman whoxhas lost his
oar. You can't imagine a more help helpless
less helpless case.- Unable to get anywhere,
there is no course but to drift with the
ebb and flow of circumstances. Once
lost, it is hard, indeed, to recover the
oarr But surely we don't have to get
into this dangerous, plight. It's our
cwn fault if we do. Co-operation, like
rowing a boat, must be studied and
learned. And we can only learn it
through practice. The .practiced oars oarsman
man oarsman never lets go of th oar. And if
we would keep from drifting we must
practice co-operation. Let's get into
practice and keep in practice. Let us
pull together in everything that
means progress for-our home town.
It's a case of sink or swim together."
The cartoon and its comment is
quite appropriate to Ocala. We are
in a good, seaworthy boat, but we
drift around on the waves because we
don't co-operate because we have
lost our oar overboard, or rather be because:
cause: because: we neveT had any oar. It's time
we were obtaining an oar whittling
one out of a thwart, or yelling to the
people in a better supplied craft to
loan us one. Unless we do, we are
not going to go anywhere. Wc will
just drift around in any old direction
that circumstances impel us.
