This was a tribute by a seabeo, Stanley Ryan, home on loavr; after duty overseas. And ho meant it, as it wasn't said in zest. "You take a man in the service, be is fed, clothed, and does what he is told. Except for the few hours of actual danger, when ho is in battle, it isn't so hard." A civilian has to worry about rent, bills, insurance, worry about relatives in tlie service, work overtime on his job and then work more hours on patriotic war work. Then- is the jam of crowds everywhere, scarcities of goods, and the monotony of doing the same things every day. In the service, you hayi! the excitement of new scenes and new faces." This Bcahce said that overseas around Xew Guinea, Saipan and other recently annexed places, the food is not so good. "No matter how you cook them, dehydrated potatoes are still dehydrated," he says. The seabees' minimum sized cooking kettles average around ano gallons. Stanley was formerly a cook at Camp Terisita at Bass lake. SAUNUERS but just adds war bond duties on to her day. She just gets up earlier and works longer hours and gets it all done. "The thermometer type sign out in front is the only symbol that designates Sina's little shop and it is hard for some to feel that bonds can be bought there as well as at the banks, or the postoffices, but people, who know Sina, and. there are many, just write out their bond applications, give Sjna their money and come back after their shopping, pick up their bond, or just ask Sina to mail It. Some have even written and enclosed checks f«r many thousands of dollars anil asked Sina to mail the bonds. "Sina is small, born in Italy, and is now a naturalized citizen of the Unitqd States. She is a fine example of what a true American should be." We think so, too. And here's a salute, also to all the civilians who worked on the community war chest campaign. They worked double time to get a hard ohose done. Civilians are doing their part. Relief At Last For Your Cough Creomulsion relieves promptly because it goes right to the seat of the trouble to help loosen and expel germ laden phlegm, and aid nature to soothe and heal raw, tender, inflamed bronchial mucous membranes. Tell your druggist to sell you a bottle of Creomulsion with the understanding you must like the way it quickly allays the cough or you are to have your money back. CREOMULSION For Couehs, Chest Colds, Bronchitis Sina Dunn of Taft, is one civilian who really merits the tribute of the seabees. She is conducting a war bond campaign between drives. She has set a goal that will finance two hospital ships for the flying of wounded from the battle fields. "One man told her he was cashing ;,-i bonds to go on a fishing trip and Sina actually cried when .she told me about it," a Taft friend wrote in. Writes this admiring friend: "Resides working from early morning until late at night in her little reshiurant "The Mug," Sina sells bonds as well us buys all that she c;m. does more than hor share in keeping the people of the West Side war bond conscious. "When I asked her why she didn't have someone else pack the lunches for her regular customers, her rpply was that 'no one i else could he counted on to remember that Hob likes pie and not cake, that .Jim has two sandwiches and no dessert, and that Jack likes lettuce in his sandwiches and Don doesn't." She has packed lunches for .so long for the same customers that she will not go back on them, Taft Rotarians See Pictures at Meeting TAFT, Oct.

Vernon McLeod, secretary from the Taft Chamber of Commerce, told of postwar plans for the West Side. Bob Hope says: "As I travel the war fronts and talk with our boys, their big question often is: 'How are our wives and sweethearts meeting the problems at home?' Now, of course, women always have problems. But today, because of the war, there are many more of them—and they're different And because TRUE STORY MAGAZINE shows them with real stories about real people how others found and i solved similar problems, it provides inspiration and I guidance—as well as great reading entertainment."
