'"An X-ray of the lungs 'will show
pulmonary tuberculosis in the:
early-stages as well as in the more
advanced stages," Dr. Jason Mil-
Jer, director of the Franklin-Gulf-

said yesterday. "In fact, an X-ray
is the' only 'way of detecting the

hats, dresses and, handbags to
match the shoes they have.
Reason for the shoe rationing
program is that war-time demands
for leather and man power have
slowed down production of civilian
shoes. In addition, more of the re-
maining supply is needed by our
armed forces. We shouldn't kick

BLESSINGS ON THEE,
Following the surprise an-
nouncement of shoe rationing
last Sunday, patriotic high
school lads turned up for their
classes Monday with the spirit
of conservationalism beaming
from their faces and their
feet minus covering. By noon
time there were a large num-
ber of erstwhile dudes stroll-
ing about the campus wiggl-
ing their bare toes in their sand
and howling with agony upon
coming in contact with the
sandspurs with which the
school grounds are so plenti-
Despite this handicap, the
fad seemed to be gaining dis-
ciples, even conscripting a
number of senior girls, before
it met an unhappy end. Prof.
W. A. Biggart put a stop to
it shortly after noon with his
well-placed argument that the
students could afford a bit
more shoe leather much easier
than a flock of absentee pu-
pils down with bad colds and?

LITTLE THINGS HELP MERCHANTS
Most of us here in Port St. Joe are accept-
ing without grumbling the conditions which
do not permit our merchants to provide for
us the service they formerly did. 'With cur-
tailed help and lack of merchandise in many
lines our merchants are endeavoring to serve
to the best of their ability, and this we should
We can all help them, if we will, in many
small ways. For instance, small charges are
often a source of annoyance to merchants,
like the charging of a nickel drink. Charging
of small items like this consumes practical
all of the profit on the sale in the bookkeep-
ing involved. If, when making- small pur-
chases, :we pay as we buy it will save the
storekeeper much time.
Let's stop and consider this a moment:
The usual charge account goes through the
following procedure: The purchase is made,
the charge is written up, it is posted on the
customer's ledger sheet, an itemized invoice
is sent requiring a statement blank, an en-
velope and a stamp,-th-e customier-nake 65ut0
a check, puts it into an 'envelope requiring
a stamp to mail it or else goes to the store
to pay the bill, then the merchant enters up
the item on his cash register and posts the
credit to the customer's account. If the cus-
tomer is careless about paying bills, the mer-
chant may have to send another statement,
'the second and even the third month.
What a lot of valuable time wasted! Ana
it could all be saved if we went on a cash
basis for the small items. Remember that the
next time you feel like charging a small item.
Your merchants will appreciate it.
We were listening to the March of Time
program on the radio the other evening-
which reminded us that it is almost time to
make out another income tax return.
AUTO DEALERS 'DIG IN'
According to Joseph W. Frazer, president
of the Willys-Overland company, more than
72 per cent of Florida's 427 automobile deal-
ers have "'dug in" for the duration, and as a
result, expect to be in business when the
war is over.
Of the 28 per cent in the state who may
not survive the- war, less than 8 per cent defl-
nitely plan to close their doors before hostili-
ties cease, Frazer said in announcing the find-
ings of a cross-section survey. The other 20
per cent are merely doubtful of their ability
to continue in business for the duration.
Some sort of tribute is due the automobile
dealer. No business enterprise has been so
hard-hit by the war. There aren't any more
new cars to be sold, comparatively few acces-
sories; tire sales contribute little if anything
to the average dealer's income; gas sales
have dropped to near the vanishing point.
In addition to having his stock-in-trade
taken away from him, the automobile dealer
-speaking of those who operate garages in
connection with sales agencies-has had to
contribute his mechanics to the war effort.
But they are hanging on doggedly, making
out somehow and, so far as the pubilc knows,
not complaining about their predicament.
They are keeping their places of business
open by hard work and good management,
ekeing out an existence from servicing the
few cars that are being kept in operation, the
sale of used cars and sidelines-some of which
have been added since Pearl Harbor changed
their whole business outlook.-Ocala News.
