large electric boxes set up to fur-

Tihe' lone score was made in the
third' quarter on a 20-yard, run by
Donald, Linton and the extra point
was chalked up with a line buck
by Ralph Silva.
The Blountatown lades, threatened
to score but one time, and that
was in the first quarter when they
shoved the pigskin down to the
St. Joe, 20-yard line. During the
final quarter they again started a
march down the field, making four
first downs on four plays, but fin-
ally fumbled the ball and it was

Pfc. Scheffer entered the service

Mr. and' Mrs. Scheffer have not

Our Country -' Right or Wrong
BONDS ARE SENSIBLE INVESTMENT
Some people here in Port St. Joe do not
seem to realize that the buying of War Bonds
is a matter of common sense investment as
well at patriotism.
War Bonds are not only the safest invest-
ment in the world today, but they bring a
higher rate of interest than any comparable
security. A glance at the stock market will
reveal that even the best grade corporation
bonds are returning less, on investment than
the 2.9 per cent yield on the E series bonds
or the 2.75 per cent received on F nd G bonds.
Moreover the War Bond buyer has the added
advantage of being able to realize his money
at any time without chance of loss by decline
in j market value.
It is wise for all of us to save now in order
that we may purchase better commodities at
TH TA OL, 1O M E im, ,,} -,;
lower prices later on. In addition, investment
in War Bonds takes surplus money out ot
circulation, thereby tending to control infla-
Yes, sir! War Bonds right now are the
most sensible buy on the market, so let's all
keep these facts in mind as we work together
to put Gulf county over its quota in this Sixth
War Loan Drive.
PRIORITY FOR WORK
A million veterans have been released from
the armed services. Others will come from
hospitals as civilians. Many are college mat-
terial. What should they do? Get jobs or
complete their education?
Listen to one now at Florida Southern
College who is completing his education at
"Probably the most important thing I
learned in the army was the necessity of edu-
cation. The educated man was or became an
officer; the specialist was advanced among
the non-coms. I believe the educated man
will receive priority when it.comes to getting
jobs, and advancemefit when they get them.
That's why I'm going to get my degree."
This man reflected the mature thought of
government specialists. Otherwise it would
not offer to spend millions of dollars to com-
plete the education of those whose schooling
was interrupted by induction.
Our advice to, these returning veterans is
to get their education, to become what they
were eager to be-lawyers, physicians, engi-
neers, chemists. These men will guide their
country after the war. We urge them to take
time out to earn the most important asset
they will need in their struggle for success.
