Van Fleet Guest Speaker
At Rotary Club Meeting.
Ralph Van Fleet, recreational di-
rector of Panama City, was guest
speaker at the meeting of the Ro-
tary Clulb last week. His subject
was "Recreational Activities."
Mr. Van Fleet 'told of the many
mistakes that have been made by
not thoroughly planning and" or-
ganizing before recreational pro-
grams were undertaken. He i'lus-
trated the success of careful plan-
ning by pointing to what has been
accomplished at Panama City.
Mr. Van Fleet is assisting the lo-
cal recreational steering commit-
tee with its organizing and plan-
ning for a recreational program in
Port St. Joe.

Our Country Right or Wrong
The editor of The Star is in receipt of a
booklet entitled "Sell America Into Jobs,"
sent out by General Motors Corporation, and
one of the paragraphs to strike our eye force-
fully was this:
"Somebody has to sell something if some-
body else is going to keep on making it and
so have money to hire other somebodies tt.
help him make it, and thus-provide jobs."
This reads like a practical digest of the
complicated problems we have to solve in or-
der to start the ball rolling toward full em-
ployment and prosperity.
If stores in Port St. Joe find it hard to get
housewives to buy their canned goods, they
aren't likely to be buying much in the way of
canned goods from wholesalers, while the
wholesalers will certainly have to cut down
on the orders they place with canneries. Fur,
thermore, the canneries won't be needing any
fruits or vegetables, and even if the farmer
has exceptional crops, he isn't going to need
extra help to harvest his fruit or vegetables
because he won't have much of a market for

* A VALUABLE
Your doctor's prescription is a valuable
document. More than a piece of paper
bearing queer words and odd characters,
it represents his years of training, expe-
rience and skill applied directly to your
individual case. As'such, the prescription
deserves the care and accuracy exercised
by our registered pharmacists and the
purity and uniformity of the prescription
chemicals and drugs we dispense.
