Our Country -~" Right or Wrong
From The Industrial News Review
THE UNITED STATES must fight on two
First, there is the military front. Ameri-
can soldiers, sailors and airmen are fighting
and dying in the Pacific. They are living up
to the highets traditions of this nation's mili-
tary history. They must be given the finest
battle equipment in the world, and they must
be given it in lavish quantity. All the re-
sources of this nation, human and material
alike, must be used to that end.
Second, there is the home front-and part
of that home front is right here in Port St.
Joe. We have said, time and again, that we
are .fighting to defend and perpetuate free-
dom. .That is true. But the defense of free-
dom at home, as on the war front, demands
more than lip service. It demands straight
thinking from all. It demands a people who
will look squarely at the facts, no matter
how unpleasant they may be. 'It demands the
kind of, national toughness that knows pre-
cisely what we are fighting for, and that will
permit nothing to stand in the way of vic-
.tory on the home front no less than the
There is nothing dramatic about these
statements. They are simply homely truths.
The winning of this war-and the winning of
the peace that follows--will depend on how
well the American people understand them.
There has never been such unity as this
country has at present. Every Americani
stands solidly behind the president in the
peldge to wage war until international gang-
sterism is destroyed. The spirit of the na-
tion is one of grim, uncompromising determi-
nation. But let all remember that the home
front is as vital to war and to the perpetua-
tion of our way of life as the battlefront.
There will be subversive influences on both
fronts. Only an awakened, aware people can
prevent their depredations.
We fight for freedom, then. And we must
fight for it all the way-fight for it here
in America, no less than in the broad reaches
of the oceans and the lands beyond.
The world's best inventive brains have
pushed us ahead with wonderful strides the
past 50 years. Now the Japs, the Germans
and the Italians are trying to set the world
back 150 years.

Buy Defense Bonds and "Ax the Axis"!
COST OF VICTORY HIGH
Big and important figures describe this
country's need in men, materials and money,
according to a rough outline drawn by the
army and navy.
Briefly, the picture is this: The army will
need an aiir force of 2,000,000 men; a heavily
mechanized land army of around 7,000,000
men; a navy of 1,100,000 men, including the
air force; a huge merchant marine to trans-
port and to supply forces in operation, just
about twice the size of that originally
planned. The cost in dollars to the United
States will be approximately $150,000,000,000.
Those figures are far from being trans-
lated into reality, but they paint a picture
of what the U. S. citizen must do. The im-
mediate purchase of defense bonds and
stamps will prove a starter toward building
this great fund, and it is the duty of every
Starting tomorrow there will begin a new
drive designed to treble throughout Florida
the sale of defense bonds and stamps. The
campaign will seek from every citizen a
pledge specifying an amount than can be in-
vested regualrly for this purpose.
This is an appeal that every Floridian
should heed, for in doing so, not only does
the individual help provide those war sinews
needed so urgently by the nation, but by tak-
ing advantage of this safest investment in
the world he provides substantially for his
own future as well.
The new campaign will require indivkidhl
sacrifices beyond anything we have experi-
enced hitherto. So for the honor of Florida,
which already holds an enviable stamp and
bond purchasing record among the states,
and for the cause of America's freedom, don't
fail to do your part!
The cost of victory will be high. It is the
duty and the privilege of every American to
help pay for it.
For the duration of the war, weather re-
ports have been cancelled due to the fact that
they might give vital information to the
enemy. So the Brighton, Mass., Citizen car-
ried the following "weather report":

LET'S START WALKING
No more tires for the old jaloppy. And
what's more, no more new jaloppies.
What are we going to do about it? Be
patriotic and start walking for a change. It
will do us good. Most of us are getting too
soft anyway, through too much easy living.
We need a little exercise, and walking places
instead of driving will do more than give us
exercise and toughen up those .flabby muscles
-it will make us grit our teeth, cuss the
Japs and serve to prepare us for other sacri-
fices that are sure to come in the future.

In the bottom of the cup use only

If the waste of sugar be eliminated there will be plenty for
all our wants and needs
The Government has wisely taken steps to insure sugar at
reasonable price to the consumer. In this war there will be no
repetition of "two pounds a week at 30 cents a pound".
Supplies on hand plus those which may be expected to arrive
safely in the country will care for all our needs during the
near-term future. Should the war continue, it is reasonable to
expect that limitations and restrictions on home produc-
tion will be removed and thus permit provision of facilities
to meet our needs.
