Share the Meat

Program Is Now

Underway Here

Needs of Armed Forces and
Allies Must Be Met By
Curtailment At Home

Women of Gulf county, meeting
in the school .auditorium here last
week, learned about the "share
the meat" campaign from various.
county workers, including Mrs. J.
A. Whitfield, home demonstration
agent; Mrs. Eula Pridgeon and
Miss Stephens, home economic in-
structors, .and, Mrs. John Griffin,
nutrition chairman of the county.
It was explained that the needs
of the armed forces and thp allied
nations for 'meat must be met
*by reduced civilian consumption,
which is called for immediately on
a voluntary basis, and will be fol-
lowed by rationing some time 'af-
ter the first of the year.
Meats involved in the request
for voluntary reduced consump-
tion 'are beef, veal, lamb, mutton
and; pork, including canned meats
and sausage made from these
*Citizens are asked to base their
voluntary weekly use of these
types of meat on the '- allowing
schedule: Adults and children
over 12 years of age, '2V2 pounds;
.children. 6 ,to .12 years, old, 1/2
pounds; -i ctIg'lden-. under 6 years,
% pound; infants under 6 months,
none. Poultry, fish and the va-
riety meats (liver, heart, kidney,
etc.) need not be counted.
Every home will be contacted
to inform housewives of the plan.
Chairmen were named for the vari-
ous sections as follows: Port St.
Joe, .Mrs. Horace Soule; Highland
View, Mrs. Paul Brigman; Ken-
ney's Mill, Mrs. Basil E. Kenney;
Oak Grove, Mrs. George Patton.
These key chairmen will be as-
sisted by a group of workers in
contacting everyone in their area.
The meat curtailment drive in
Gulf county is expected to result
in a large increase in local con-
sumption of food fish produced
-here. 4J


Leave Sufficient Arm Bands To
Provide For All Observers

With the taking over of this
area Monday by the Third Fighter
,Command, a group of Signal Corps
men from Mobile, Ala., consisting
of Lieut. J. E. Moshier, Pfc. E. W.
Eiper and Pfc. C. Grogan, in-
spected the AWS post here and
expressed approval at the manner
in which it is being conducted.
Upon being informed that there
were 82 observers signed up, Lieut.
Moshier said. that most posts in
the area 'he had inspected had
'from four to perhaps 20 observers.
Incidentally, Liefit. Moshier left
50 arm bands, 85 buttons and 80
plane identification charts with
,Chief Observer W. S. Smith, and
those who have not yet received
their arm bands are asked to call
for them. Every observer is also
asked to call for'an AWS button.

Coupon System To 'Be Put Into
Effect After New Year's Ex.
plained By Price Office

You'll have to lehrn how to
juggle a new kind of money soon
to put meat on the table.
Disclosing more details of the
meat rationing program scheduled
for early next year, the OPA this
week explained some phases of
the, "point rationing system" which
has been developed particularly
for handling such commodities.
Shortly after New Year's every-
one will get War Ration Book No.

which also is being used for cof-
fee. Book No. 2 will contain 192
coupons of different colors, de-
nominations and lettering.
These coupons are the coin of
the new money system which Am-
ericans will have to master. In-
stead of pennies, nickels, dimes,
quarters :and halves, you'll have a
red A-1 coupon, a red A-2 coupon,
a red A-5 coupon, a red A-8 cou-

Some of Ration

Plans Revealed

(Continued from Page 1)
OPA will assign certain letters for
use the first month or period of
weeks-perhaps red A, B and C
for February-and then will put
out a price list, in points, on vari-
ous kinds of meat-maybe, some-
thing like this:
Cut Points per lb.
Hamburger ................. 1
Porterhouse ................. 8
Lamb Chops ................ 3
Round Steak ................
Bacon ....................... 5
This illustration is strictly hypo-
thetical, because the big question
which officials haven't settled yet
is the point values to be assigned
different kinds of meat. The points
represent the figures on the cou-
pons.-An A-1 or an S-1 is good for
one point, a B-5 or a T-5 is good
for five points, and so on. Two
C-2's can be used' for a four-point
From this point on, you budget
*your points just like your money,
except that it will be your points
rather than your money that will
be rationed. You might have a ra-
tion of 48 meat points for Febru-
ary. If you spend all your coupons
on porterhouse, well, you spend
them all on porterhouse and that's
that. If your taste runs to ham-
burger you get more of it for your

the first commodity rationed with
ity other things may be allotted
with the same book. For instance,
all the red coupons could be used
for meat, leaving all the blue cou-
pons for perhaps clothing, al-
though OPA does not contemplate
clothing rationing at present.
,Generally the point values will
be figures on available supplies
rather than on intrinsic values. In
some cases OPA might juggle the
points from month to month, to in-
fluence the public to choose more
plentiful things by making those
items "cheap" in points. In the
:oase of mneat, for instance, steaks
might be made very "expensive"
in points to get people to eat more
plentiful roasts-if that were the
case-or pork might be made more
expensive than beef,' or vice versa.

Months before the treachery of
Pearl Harbor, our men who plan the
distribution and transmission of
electric power worked out a "grid"
system of interconnecting 'the
power lines of this company with
those of other electric utilities oper-
ating in this state and the South-
"east. More than $800,000 were
spent by this company in building
substations, improving generating
stations, and building the necessary
interconnecting lines which assures
every part of our territory va con-
tinuous supply of electric power.
Yes, there is an ample supply of
electric energy to turn the wheels
of industry and to furnish light and
power for military bases and all
other war needs.


A recent example of,how this com-
pony was able to save money, time
and critical materials for the gov-
ernment, was the building of 50
miles of high tension lines to fur-
nish power and light to an impor-
tant branch of our armed services.
This was a rush job and, despite
many obstacles, construction was
completed ahead of schedule. Even
though we had a high priority num-
ber for materials on this job, our
engineers saved a substantial
amount of critical materials by
tearing down 18 miles of transmis-
sion lines on one part of our prop-
erties and used them in this con-
struction. The erecting of these
lines eliminated the necessity of
building a new generating station,
which would have required months
longer. Every member of our or-
ganization takes pardonable pride
in .the prompt and efficient com-
pletion of this war assignment.

taxes unless present conditions and
prospects are radically changed.
"I say this in spite of the fact
that some people predict a need
for as much as $10,000,000 in new
money," he said.

Like most everything else, fyel oil,
copper wire and other essential
materials used by this company
have gone up in price. (For ex-
ample, we now pay 34% more for
fuel oil than a year ago.) The cost.
of electricity, along with other pub-
lic utility services, has 'not been
increased to domestic consumers, -'
and there is no scarcity of modern
electric service. The two outstand-
ing advantages of your present
electric rate are, your family budget
need not be enlarged for the use
of your electrical servants such as
refrigerators, washing machines,
water heaters and other appliances,
and the cost of the war, which you
as a taxpayer are helping to pay,
is held down.

Nearly 300,000 pounds of steel,
iron, copper, etc., have been turned
into military uses. Every member
of this organization is a "one-man
salvage warden," and we are grate-
ful to have been cited for doing an
outstanding job in saving critical!
materials for war uses. No effort
is spared to salvage every bit of
rubber, iron, steel, copper, etc., to
be turned into the "National Scrap

Saving gasoline and rubber is.noth-
ing new to you or to us, but it is
something that all of us must do
for the duration. During the post
twelve month hs, company-owned
cars were driven 264,318 LESS
miles than'in the preceding twelve
months without any impairment of
essential services to our customers.
This record was made in spite of
the fact that We have been doing
urgently needed construction work,
and 70% of oti of our automotive
equipment is the heavy duty type.


There have been sharp de- more for public schools, to offset
creases in many tax revenues, but declines in gasoline taxes and au.

More than 20% of our male erh.
ployees are doing the biggest jobs
of their careers fighting with the
Armed Forces, and the number is
growing each day. We are proud
of these men who have been loaned
to do a mighty important job. Many
of the men and women employees

is pledged to save and conserve ,
wherever we can. Of course, we
are buying bonds and backing up
those who are on the battle lines

While the extension of new lines fori
domestic users was curtailed many
months ago, your electric company
is following a well-designed custo-
mer service program to aid all con-
sumers in the case of their present
electrical appliances. Our Home
Service representatives are aiding
housewives in the planning of
well-balanced meals and helping to
maintain the highest degree of ef-
ficiency of their appliances thus
enabling them to devote more time
toward activities brought about by
the war.

Helping you receive the most from
your electric service is our constant
aim. Every employee of this comrn-
pony feels the responsibility we
have, as a war industry, in main-
taining the highest type service to
all those engaged in the war effort.
To those in the armed forces, and
to you, who are fighting on the
home front, we renew our pledge of
"Service to Customer, Community
and Country," and we welcome
your suggestions for the continued
improvement of this service.

Our Country Right or Wrong

This week marks one year that the United
States has been at war and, as in the last war,
this nation apparently is the deciding factor
.as to whether the democracies or the fascist
.nations come out on top of the heap.
Our country has been converted into one
.huge manufacturing concern and we are to-
day producing more of the sin,ews of wvar
than the combined axis powers. Since Janu-
ary 1 of this year we have produced in excess
,of 49,000 planes of all types, 32,000 tanks,
17,000 anti-aircraft guns and some 780 mer-
'chant vessels amounting to 8,200,000 tons.
This production and our huge army, navy
aid air force is slowly turning the tide. We
mray soon see an invasion of Europe from
,three points-one using Sicily, Sardinia and
'Corsica for stepping stones to Italy, the sec-
ond ;on the French west coast, probably at
the Bay Of Biscay, 'and the third into south-
ern France, perhaps 'at Marseilles.
When this happens-, the Italian will depose
3Ilij s liii and stie for peace, and the. German
.hordes will be driven back into their own
*couht'ry. But we inmay expect to see Schickel-
grtdber, in oie last desperate push, launch a
drive into Turkey via the Dardanelles and
thence into 'Syria 'and 'ndto the 'island of Cy-
prus in an attempt to gain control of the
eastern end of the Mediterranean.
How long this iiiight take, no one can say
-it might be within one year, or it might
run on .for three or four years-brit the otit-
come is certain, and when the Nazi war rha-
chine is completely subjiigated the combined
forces of the United Nations will then turn
to the messy job of cleaning the Japarats out
'of the southwest Pacific.
We don't ordinarily go in for long-range
predictions of this sort, but a close study of
the manner in which events are shaping up,
,combined with similar circumstances in the
last war, has brought on this sudden surge
,of secondsight. If you think we're wrong cor-
rectf us. If not, cut this out and paste it in
'your hat for future reference.

There have been some doubters around
Port St. Joe who scoffed at the idea of turn-
ing in an empty toothpaste or shaving cream ,
tube when making a new 'purchase, saying
that it was ridiculous and served no good pur-
pose. Well, here's their answer: 'In the first,
six months that the order was effective,
1,168,000 pounds of metal from the tubes has
been turned over to the Tin Salvage Insti-
tute. From this, 513,920 pounds of tin can' be
recovered and 260,000 pounds already have
been furnished war industries.

Hitler used to say, "It was a great vic-
tory." Then he said, "It will be a great vic-
tory."' Now he mutters "The victory will be
ours-I hope."

One thing about this war-saving time-a
lot of us who never saw a sunrise in our lives
are beginning to appreciate their beauty. And
tlian sunrises and sunsets in Port St. Joe,
'there are none more supersquendacious.

We notice lately in the stores of Port St.
Joe that the service isn't what it used to be.
In days gone by customers 'were waited upon
about as soon as they entered the door, but
now a long wait is sometimes necessary be-
fore we can be served. And a lot of us be-
come impatient, maybe pound on the counter
to attract attention, or turn and walk our.
We should remember that practically all
our business houses have lost men to the
armed services and many clerks, both men
and women, have accepted jobs at the paper
mill with shorter hours and better pay. This
necessitates putting on new employes, if they
are available, and chances are that these are
inexperienced and require time to become ef-
ficient. And, too, our merchants are not able
to get all the necessary merchandise to meet
your wants satisfactorily.
So, if you are not waited on as promptly
as you believe you should be when doing your
shopping, remember these facts and be pa-
tient and considerate.

In a radio reply to- Winston Churchill's
speech warning Italy to get out of the war
-or else, Benito Mussolini, alias Benny the
Mug, alleged supreme dictator of.the Italian
nation, was reported to have "coughed fre-
quently and breathed heavily."
The distracted, disillusioned and deflated
Duce is said to be ailing. Some accounts have
it that he has stomach ulcers and that to fur-
ther complicate matters he has a leaky valve
or two in his heart.
Still-that doesn't explain the coughing.:

Major Kevan, stated Monday evening that

"Now, Mother?" she asked.

"Why of course, Betsy," Mrs.
Carson grinned. "Are you going
to write it or am I?"
"Well," Betsy said. "Maybe
you'd better kind of say it to me.

"All right, then, Miss Carson,
