'jfceeping in the ^J\ood

Yes, we caught several of you picking up all sorts of
debris in your yards last Tuesday morning. And the wind
did create quite a sensation as well as a mess . . . overturn
ed signs and ash-cans, uprooted bushes, and even de-bedded
people. But the pay-off came when the summer breeae
hauled bodies from Miss Fannie Crawford's porch while
a great ole big limb parted company with a tree to slump
in the chairs and rock.
If the mosquitoes aren't nibbling on your big
toes, nasty ole flies are, especially the people on
Church and Academy. Several ladies have plastered
"Fan away the flies before you enter" signs 'cross

pests have diverted minds from the icar.

The American people were warn

House opened debate this week on
the $42,820,003,067 Army Supply
Bill designed to give us the biggest,
toughest fighting force in the world.
And that force will be used in

action in consonance with the ac

of combat ships to our Fleet.
The Navy bill provides for a tre

riers, which the Senate Committee
called "the most serviceable vessels
of our Navy."
The warning to expect u long war

The introduction of the bill show

enlarged its view of the scope of the

last January 6th, FDR asked for less

the fiscal year 1943.
With the $42,000,000,000 asked, the
U.S.A.'s World War II commitments
