OUR ITALIAN LETTER
An Airfield In Ita'.y
Feb. 15, 194b
Dear Editor Bill-I was in the
nearest village to ,our base here a
few days agp and saw where Billy
Coody .had registered in the Red
Cross Servicemen's club there. Of
course that must have been quite
some time ago, for he was back
in the States in June ,when I was
n ht i- +hi. last time, It Is alwa~7A
here in Port St. Joe. Thousands, yes millions,
of American men in uniform are tired beyond
belief of battle, and homesick for home and
family. Yet they know they-must keep on.
There is no one of us but wotild give every-
thing to lighten the burden of sorrowing fam-
ilies who have lost their men, or calm the
fears of those whose men have been wounded.
We would give all we could to ease the pain
of the injured, or still the homesickness in
tnose who must fight on.
Today, as the Red Cross campaign for
funds gets well under way, we can do our
share in lightening the burden of sorrow, in
calming the fears, and in easing the pain ol
the wounded. The Red Cross was created
just for that purpose and through its chan-
nels of mercy we can do most for those who
need our help.
The Red Cross is at the front keeping alive
the atmosphere of home for the men who are
fighting; the Red Cross is in the hospitals
cheering the wounded and sending messages
home to anxious and fearful relatives; the
Red Cross is sending blood plasma and surgi-
cal dressings to save the lives of our youths;
the Red Cross is here at 'home to aid and as-
sist families in distress.
This is YOUR Red Cross and through it
you can do your share in human kindness and
blunt somewhat the horror that is ,war. If
you haven't yet been contacted by the volun-
teer workers or have not made your contri-
bution to the present drive for funds, do so
today in order that Gulf county can meet its
quota of $6200 as quickly as possible.

During this winter the work on
the St. Joseph and Iola railroad
was pushed steadily on. It was
completed some time during 1839.
Although the exact date of the
opening cannot be ascertained, it
was probably as late as Ostober,
for an advertisement appearing in
Tile Times announcing the open-
ing .is dated' October 28, 1839.
Even before completion of the
railroad, the restless Saints' were
turning to a new project, or rather
to an old one, of 1835-the son-
struction of a canal from Lake
Wimico to the bay. The vigilant
Apalachicola Gazette, of February
2 announced the project in these
terms: "Our friends of St. Joseph
have already become convinced
that the new railroad to Iola will
not answer their purpose. It is
about to share the fate of the old
road to the depot-.being thrown
by in disgust. "They now talk oT

canal from their bay to the Ap-

Event of the week! The girls"
softball game last Friday between
the juniors and seniors. The se-
niors must be too old to play ball
(we've just decided, to beckne a
hermit), as the juniors ran all over
them for a score of 11 to 6. Not
bad for amateurs. Starting lineup
for the juniors was Mary Dees,
catcher; Margaret Tharpe, pitcn-
er; Habei Cason, first base; Billy
Jean Campbell, second; Wanda
Spencer. shortstop; Elouise Schef-
fer, short field; Jewel Faircloth,
third; Betty Waller, right fielo;
Bunnyi Martin, center field, ann
"Sissy" Edwards left field. For tnlb
seniors: Hazel Niohols, catcher;
Sally Traweek, pitcher; Louise
Wilder, first; Lois Manasco, sec-
ond; Margaret Shealy, shortstop,
Helen Cantwell, third, base; Mary
Revel, center field; Alda Powell,
left field and Jimmie Palmer, right
'The seniors had first bats. ana
chalked up one fun In the inning,
while the juniors made two. In
the second the seniors made one
more and the juniors five, while
in the final inning 'both teams
scored flour counters, each.
It was qutie a .ball game. There
were cat-calls from all sides, but
for some strange reason the cats
couldn't be found. The' umpires
were changed, quite often', but
otherwise all was peaceful.
The reed, section of the band
played: for the Womani's Cluib Wed-
nesday, rendering a selection of
old favorites. Band practice has
been changed again from Monday
.:-nuings, and Thursday nights to
Tuesday and Thursday nights. We
all hope it will remain, thus, as
these plans suit everyone. Mr.
Beoham has .stated that the band
will give a concert soon to raise
money for music, uniforms and
more instruments, ,of which the
band is in dire need.

WHY THE PULPWOOD
DOUBLY ACUTE AS ACTION
SHIFTS TO PACIFIC
THE ONLY PEOPLE who think Victory in Europe
will ease the pulpwood shortage are those who
flunked their geography. A look at a globe shows how
much more difficult the supply problem becomes as
major action shifts to the Pacific.
WAR IN PACIFIC IS DIFFERENT
Not only are the distances vastly greater but conditions
are entirely different. In Europe port facilities permitted
bulk shipments. In the Pacific every item must be
double wrapped to meet the more difficult handling and
DON'T WASTE PRECIOUS TIME
Cut only quality,pulpwood. Rotted, excessively
crooked or thin logs slow the war effort.
