Tins poem, written on a scrap of paper, was found recently plastered to the side of a shack used by air plane spotters in Pennsylvania. It was penned by a young man who was called upon to do double duty during the night when the men as signed to relieve him failed to re port. For Uie life of me, Damned if I can see Why no one watches From twelve to three. If the Arm yand Navy Felt like that, \ The Japs would take us In nothing flat. God help the good old U.S.A. If all we do is sit home and pray. Wars are won by facing facts, Not by Grandstand Quarterbacks. If anything makes me see red, It's guys who can't get out of bed. The pay is small, that we admit, But we should try to do our bit. Excuse this bad attempt at rhyme, It'ii dune to puss awu^_the time.

"ON THE JOB" Training "on the job" in war in dustry has resulted in as much as SO per cent increase in production in some cases, according to reports of the War Production Board's la bor division. Training within indus try is one of the ways in which the United States is meeting hte skilled labor crisis. ?

Tlie Board of Commissioners of Martin County have been coopera tive in our program of trying to or ganize the entire county for fire pro tection and police protection. Due to so much demand on the Government Printing Office*, the Office of Civilian Defense has not been able to furnish local councils, including our own, with necessary books, pamphlets and instructions, without which it has been impossi ble to thoroughly acquaint our citi zenship with the absolute necessity and importance of participation by all citizens in this important work. But in spite of the lack of informs tion, wherever the citizens are ed on they have reacted as true ercians when they see the need. The chairman above named is very appreciative of the cooperation of Martin County citizens. From time to time now valuable instructions will be distributed so that very soon all the men, women, boys and girls will understand what their Government expects of them in the home front in this all-out war, looking toward a full and final vic tory for our Nation and their A Hies rork. rma- / call-/' App BUILDING SUPPLIES For HOME REPAIRS and IMPROVEMENTS Dou'l let your home structure "break down" because of neglected repairs.
