WOMEN OF OAK GROVE
WILL MAKE DRESSINGS
A third Red Cross surgical
dressing room for this area was
opened yesterday, in Oak Grove at
the home of Mrs. G. A. Patton. A
similar room was opened recently
at the home of Mrs. J. A. Christ-
mas in Highland View.
These two rooms will be oper-

in charge of Mrs. Lovie Coburn,
source, the city dads Tuesday eve-
ning decided to look elsewhere for
a supply of the vital fluid.
It was- found that plenty of milk
could be secured from the Fore-
most Dairies in Atlanta, Ga., and
that a supply was also available
in Pensacola. The milk from At-
lanta would have to come by ex-
press to Monticello and be brought
here by truck, while the city woula
have to furnish trucks for delivery
of milk from Pensacola. In either
case this would run the cost above~
the OPA ceiling price.
Mayor J. L. Sharit stated yes-
terdiayi that the OPA had already
agreed to allow a selling price of
19 cents per quart, but this was
before it was discovered that it
would be necessary to sell the milk
from Atlanta at 24 cents--per quart
in order to avoid a loss. Mayor
Sharit yesterday sent a telegram
to A. W. Pierpont, district OPA
price executive at Jacksonville, re-
questing that the city be allowed
to distribute milk at this price un-
til an OPA representative coulct

in a few days. Mayor Sharit was
expecting to confer with this dis-
tributor late yesterday.

OIL SHOWING IN
It was revealed this week that
"salt water with a bona-fide show-
ing of very heavy dark oil" has
been recovered from the Humble
Oil company's well being drillea
at Sunniland, a small Everglades
community. Samples have been
sent to the state geologist.
The Humble well, drilled to a
depth of 11,598 feet, has a sevea-
inch casing. Geologists in charge
believe the showing of oil is com-
ing through porous limestone of
about 12 feet thickness.
iMore than 100 wells have been
sunk in Folrida in search of oil,
but only a few have gone below a
depth of 6000 feet.

Our Country Right or Wrong
Next'Wednesday, October 27, is Navy Day,
a day which, with the country involved in
war an' a large number of the young men
of Gulf county in the navy, should hold
greater interest than ever before for all of us.
Navy- Day marks two anniversaries the
anniversary 9f the birth of Theodore Roose-
velt and the anniversary for the report of. a
special committee to congress in 1777 which
favored the buying of merchant ships as the
foundation of an American navy.
The American Navy League in 1922 sug-
gested to President Harding that the day be
observed. as Navy Day. The Navy League
was founded in 1903 by a group of citizens
interested in impressing' upon the people of
this country the necessity for a navy and the
uses to which it might be put. Theodore
Roosevelt, who was then president, gave the
suggestion his hearty support. Because of"
his enthusiastic support of the plan it was

decided that his birthday be observed on the
same day that Navy Day is observed.
The first observance of the day was hela
October 27, 1922. Appropriate ceremonies
were held in various parts of the country con-
sisting of parades, speaking and dinners.
Admiral Hillary P. Jones, commander-in-
chief of the Atlantic fleet, under orders laid
a wreath on the Roosevelt tomb at Oyster
Bay, New York. President Harding sent a
message to Los Angeles to be read at the
Roosevelt memorial celebration in that city.
Secretary Denly of the navy department laid
a wreath on the tomb of the Unknown Sol-
dier in Arlington cemetery, and ceremonies
were held before the statue of John Paul
Jones in Potomac park in Washington. Spe-
cial memorial services were held in the
churches in New York city. In London the
American legation placed a wreath upon the
tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Westminstei
Abbey. Similar services were held before the
tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Paris.

will be provided with geisha girls and all the

priced at $189.50 for four pieces. We now have quite an assortment of
dinette suites that will sell from $74.50 up to $98.50 for the table and four
chairs. If you should need two extra chairs for any of these suites, we will
be glad to order them for you. We haven't had a chance to get these suites
out of the freight house yet, so I don't know exactly what they will be like,
but we will have them on the floor some time today.
Some of you have been inquiringa bout baby hi-chairs and double bunk
beds. We now have a few of both, and would like to have you come down
and look them over. Had an assortment of mighty pretty pictures come in
last week-end, folks, and another batch of mirrors especially designed for
use with your dressing table or chest of drawers. The pictures are 23 inches
wide by 27 inches long and sell for $6.95. The mirrors have a special at-
tachment so that you can fasten them directly to the back of your dressing
table or chest. You can have your choice of either round or square mirror
at $2.95' each. Won't you stop by and look these items over? We're always
glad to see you.

There is another thing I wanted
to bring to the attention of the
people at home, and: that is about
one of the organizations that 1
have noticed -is doing a good job.
It is the American Legion. Whilh
I was seeing the sights of one so-
called Hollywood, I looked at my
watch. It was then -around 1 a. m.
Sunday, and I suddenly realize
that I hadn't secured a room for
the night. I walked the city ovei
and got the same answer from
every hotel clerk: "You should
have come in earlier, for we are
always overcrowded on Saturday
Then one clerk advised me to
go to the American Legion. Well,
I wondered what was at the Le-
gion as I walked over there. When
I got to the Legion home, before
I knew what was happening, somit
kind gentleman had handed me a
card and told me that mine was
number 49. He told, me to give ,It
to the man in the auditorium. As
I entered the auditorium, I saw
that the seats had been removed
and rows of cots installed. -I saw
soldiers, sailors, coast guardsmen
and marines sleeping side by side.
The next morning I tried to pay
for my cot, but .I was told there
was no charge. I. left saying. that
is one organization that the city
of Hollywood should be proud of,
aind I know the people are proud
of the American Legion.
I have always given, to the Rea
Cross, and when it comes my time
again to give to it, I am going to
double my contribution. I found
out what a wonderful job the Red
Cross is doing when I visited my
pal in the station hospital at the
air center in Nashville,', Tenn. He

O UR GOVERNMENT is calling for the
greatest food production in history. Farmers
of this community are answering the call with long
hours, hard work, real sacrifice and true patriotism.
But these are not enough. There are serious
leaks to be plugged, and real problems to be over-
come before we can possibly reach the tremendous
food goals necessary for VICTORY.
Feed is scarce-protein feeds in particular. We
are doing everything in our power to supply our
customers. But there is not enough to go around.
We must therefore stretch our limited supplies to
produce the most meat, milk and eggs.
To do this, we must not waste precious feed on
unthrifty livestock or poultry." We must cull un-
profitable producers. We must stamp out disease
and parasites as saboteurs of production. We must
do a better job with what we have.
We know from our many farm contacts that
most of such losses can be pre-
vented. We are convinced that
our food goals can be reached
without additional feed, labor

plugging unnecessary leaks and stopping easily-
Accordingly, as our part in the "Food for Vic-
tory" effort, we have volunteered our services to the
feeders of this community to help stamp out Pro-
duction Saboteurs and Feed Wasters.'
At any time of day or night' we will call at your
farm to assist in such feed-saving practices as cull-
ing chickens, worming pigs, disinfecting against
disease and parasites, checking feeder and watering
space, etc. We will also help' you with a war-time
check-up of your feeding operations, based on a
series of practical production guides suggested and
recommended by both national knd state agricul-
