Our Country Right or Wrong

When the big artillery shells of the A. E. F.
fell on Sedan, France, in early November, 25
years ago, the east and west armies of Kaiser
Bill were cut in two and his goose was
cooked. Then came the armistice.
Der Fuerher's goose will be cooked one
day, too, and then Tojo's. How soon depends
on us at home as much as .on our fighting
men. For they can't win victories unless we
keep them supplied with more and better
equipment than the enemy's.,
Planes, ships, tanks and guns are essential
needs, we know, but just as essential are
ammunition, equipment, food, medical sup-
plies and a hundred other materials of .war
needed in each day's battle.
One of the essential products of hundreds
of items of war today is pulpwood. It goes
into the manufacture of smokeless powder,
surgical dressings, mine covers, cargo para-
chutes, vests for aviators, weatherproof
maps, containers for blood plasma, first aid
kits and emergency rations, just to name a
few. Tons of food and equipment are shipped
overseas each month in waterproof -boxes
and bags made of pulpwood, which has re-
placed millions of pounds of critical metals.
Now the nation, at war, is suffering from
a serious pulpwood shortage which can be
only relieved by the farmers and woodcutters
in pulpwood producing areas like ours. We
can't all work on the planes and ships and
tanks' and guns, but every ablebodied man in
Gulf county can give them life by the fruits
of his axe and saw. \
Remember the Victory Pulpwood Cam-
paign slogan: "Cut a Cord of Pulpwood for
Every Local Boy in Service." We aren't
asked to give, but to cut a cord, with profit
to ourselves and with service to the nation.
Your cord may help bring Sedan a little
closer for Hitler and Tojo and provide the
fire for the cooking of the Axis goose.

We don't have to wonder any more-Presi-
dent Rgosevelt has officially proclaimed next
Thursday as Thanksgiving Day.

With organization of the Gulf County Plan-
ning Board underway for the development
of post-war projects in Gulf county, mem-
bers of the body should and will include inl
plans the matter of returning servicemen,
for they are really going to be one of the
big post-war problems.
These men must of necessity be fitted back
into the pattern of things, and naturally
when they return they will expect to take
up their lives in the community where they
dropped it to go into service to offer their
lives, if need be, in order that our mode of
existence might be perpetuated.
We must plan to give them back their olo
jobs, if they want them, and we must plan
for public works over a period of two or
three years to provide jobs for those who
were not employed at the time of entering
the armed services, particularly those who
left us as boys and who will return as men.
It can be done, but it will require that all
of us put in a great deal of time, thought and
work on the problem.

Letters to Santa

Kiddies Apparently Heeding Plea
To Shop Early and Mail
Early This Year

Apparently one little girl has lis-
tened to the pleas of the postof-
fice department and the railroads
to shop and mail early, for this
week the first letter to Santa
Claus came in, fully three weeks
ahead of the normal time for
such epistles.
Since Santa is a busy man, and
is a regular subscriber to The Star
we are printing the letter here-
Dear Santa Claus-I want two
pr. of riding pants for Christ-
mas because it is getting cold. I
also want some dolls. Would
like to hdve a ball for Betty (my
cousin). If you can find a desk
and chair, would like to have so
I can study my lessons every
night. Will appreciate very much
if you can get these things for
me Christmas. Lots love.
Sib'bie Bell Brinson
P. S.-I want a Dr. kit set if
you can find one4,
The young lady's wants do not
seem to be extravagant and we
feel sure that Santa will be alb:e
to fill the order.
