Dear Editor Bill-It seems as it
the boys from St. Joe who are in
other parts of the world have al-
ready written, you, so here's a few
lines from a St. Joe soldier 'way
down Panama way.
I (like all the rest of the fellows,)
am always wondering what earcn
soldier, .sailor, marine or coast-
guardsman from St. Joe is doing.
As for me, I'm a boat operator.
Yep! A "sailing .soldier," dressed
in a sailor uniform each day, but
back to my khak.ia at night. Seem
strange? Well, the army has tme
strangest wa7 of doing things.
They trained me to be a smashing,
slashing rifleman, 'but then .sendl
me to Panama and start me riding
the waves.
I"m receiving The Star regu-
larly. It really keeps up a fellow's
morale and brings back memories
of the happy 'days, spent in St. Joe
'before this dreadful monster called
war crept up to our back. Since
we have two enemeis down and
one to go though, I feel sure that
it won't be so awfully long before
all of us will be coming bac'.
My regards ahd best wishes to

The Kiwanians nosed out 'the

Our Country Right or Wrons

The people of Gulf county have bought, to
date $7,151, or 6 per cent, of their "E" Bond
quota in the Seventh War Loan. This is a
very poor beginning and falls far short of the
record of other counties in the state, some of
which have subscribed more than 50 per cent
of their quota. Lake-and Okaloosa counties,
with far greater quotas' than Gulf, top 'the
list of counties with 50 per cent. Lee, Hendry,
Baker and Sumter counties rank next with
approximately 35 per cent. Sales over the
state as .a whole are 26 per cent.

South, since it gives t-he South equal oppor-

Equalizing of railroad rates at this particu-

of its war industries, and in the postwar pe-

MA W7Rw Lrin spRIte /Vr


YES, despite their long months and
years of privation and suffering,
those gallant men, just released from
filthy Jap Prison Camps, still have
their good old fighting spirit. They're
itching to get back into the fight and
give the Nips a taste of their own
Let's show them that we're not
quitting either! Let's match their
spirit with our dollars! Let's make
this MIGHTY 7th War Loan the
mightiest of them all!

But to come even close to matching
their sacrifices, everyone here at
home must buy War Bonds until it
hurts. Buy double or treble the extra
War Bonds you've bought in any
previous drive. Remember, this is
really two drives in one. In the same
,period last year, you were asked to
subscribe to two War Loans.
So let's go, Americans. Our hard-
fighting Soldiers, Sailors and Ma-
rines are giving their ALL. The least
we can do is to lend our dollars.
