have amounted to approximately
$34,000. Additions to the member-
ship have reached the approxi-
mate number of 225.
Just recently the church has
purchased an Everett organ, which
will be installed and dedicated as
soon as it arrives. In addition to

LET'S MAKE IT 'SAFE AND SANE'

Everyone should co-operate fully for, while
it will be a time for rejoicing, it would be
fitting likewise to remember our boys out in

prayer asking that they too may soon com-

the barbarian hordes. When that day arrives
we can really celebrate, but in the approach-
ing da)y of victory let us keep it "safe and
sane" and work all the harder for the victory
in the Pacific.

riod of inactivity to permit reconversion of
manufacturing plants from wartime to peace-
time production. We should consider our-
selves lucky from that standpoint, for num-
bers of other communities, centers of over-
night wartime-built industries will not only
have a slump during the conversion period,
but a decidedly large slump when Japan is
forced to surrender. The St. Joe Paper Com-
pany mill will go right ahead turning out its
kraft products and the St. Joe Lumber and
Export Company will be equally as busy get-
ting out lumber not only for war needs but
for civilian needs as well.
Even on V-Day there will still be need for
many pulpwood products by our armed
forces. So long as there are any Americau
forces in Europe, the array will need boxes
and other containers made of pulpwood to
ship them food amd clothing. Moreover, there
will be an increase in the shipment of food to
feed civilians in liberated countries.
Once the European war has ended, military
operations in the Pacific will be stepped up
.tremendously. That means the shipment ot
more supplies and equipment to this combat
area, most of which will be packed in pulp-
wood products or crated with lumber.
But behind all these continuing war needs
will be a backlog of civilian requirements for
many kinds of paper and lumber that alone
would keep pulp, paper and lumber mills run-
ning full scale for months after both our wars
have ended in victory.
And pulpwood and saw timber cut for war
in Gulf county is the same pulpwood and saw
timber that will be in demand for peacetime
production. Getting these materials out is a
wartime job now, but they have a postwar
future as well.
It niust be terrible when a woman gets so
mad she can't think of a word to say.
