Our Country Right or Wrong
ANY OLD RUBBER TODAY?
In all war activities to date, Gulf county
has come through with colors flying. Now
the drive is on for the collection of old rub-
ber of all kinds and we feel sure that our peo-
ple will again be in the front ranks when the
drive ends June 30.
Reme.mbler that every old tire, tube, hot
water bottle, rubber heels or soles-anything
made of rubber-will help rub out the Axis.
-'"All old rubber must be put back into circu-
lation in our all-out war effort, and gasoline
filling stations have been designated as re-
ceiving stations for the scrap. One cent per
pound will be paid for all the rubber brought
in, but we feel sure that the people here will
not be thinking in terms of money when. they
bring in their scrap, and will donate it. Cash
received from the sale of it will go to various
So dig up all the old rubber around the
house and garage and use it to bounce Hitler
out of Berlin.
With passage of the pay increase bill for
American fighting men this makes our war-
riors the best paid in the world. Australia's
army pay is approximately $47 monthly, Can-
adas $33, and in Japan the amount is a mu-
nificent 30 cents per month.
HAVE YOU GOT YOUR CAR STAMP?
By July 1, if you're still lucky enough to
have tires on your car, it will be necessary
to dig down for $5 to purchase a new "use"
stamp for the old bus. Better go down to the
postoffice today, if you have the necessary
dinero, and have Postmaster Drake fix you up.
You may think you can get by without se-
curing one of these stamps, but in our opin-
ion this part of the country will soon come
under the gasoline rationing restrictions, and
the new stamps are numbered. If and when
we get gasoline rationing the number on
your stamp will be placed on your rationing
card, so-no stamp, no gas.
TAX DEDUCTIONS FOR SICKNESS
The amount of money which the average
citizen will have left after he pays his taxes
will grow steadily smaller. The present fed-
eral tax program is designed to drastically
reduce public purchasing power, as well as
to produce needed revenue.
As a result, many families will be in a dif-
ficult position when faced with some ines-
capable special expenditure. Sickness is am
example of that. The tax:drain will take from
millions of families excess money that should
be used for doctor, dental and hospital bills.
It has been proposed that congress recog-
nize this fact and write into the tax laws a
provision whereby the individual can deduct
money spent for medical care in making up
his income tax statement.
Such a provision seems completely sound,
to say nothing of its humanitarian aspects,
for it wotild be a definite contribution to bet-
ter public health.
One thing we don't like, but will have to
get used to, is the elimination of the scratch-
ing surface on one side of the boxes of safety
matches. Seems like every time we go to light
a match we get the wrong side of the box.
Sunday was Flag Day, but apparently as
fas as most of the people in Port St. Joe were
concerned it was just another day.
Keep smiling-and buy War Bonds!

Lehmann stated that in the re-

residents of Gulf county pledged
to buy $40,554 worth of bond's and

basis of May purchases the yearly
amount would run over $212,0001
Mr. Lehmann said he found the

scribled by more than a million

s-lf for having run so hard.
Writers of military history often overlook the
strategic part that women play in the wars men
wage. It is nevertheless true that the fighting
morale of men on the battle-front rises no
higher than the faith and fortitude of the
women they leave behind.
Whether it was grandmother writing words of
encouragement to her soldier by candlelight or
her granddaughter doing a man's job as an
electric welder in a munitions plant, it is the
women; whose sacrifice and devotion inspire
men to face fire with the traditional courage
of our fighting forebears. Just as fearless
Joan d'Arc once led the legions of France to
victory, the American' woman who gives her
heart and hand to the cause of country
becomes the decisive factor in the conflict.
Electricity in a large way meets today's critical
challenge. The industry is prepared to produce
the power needed in this great emergency. And
the general use of electricity gives women the
freedom to give more of themselves in pro-
ducing munitions and in building morale.
Modern electric services give you the
time to help keep democracy at work.
