You Think." 7 « * » REMEMBER BILL? "DEMEMBER BILL? -Cy Somewhere in Bataaii he is lighting for you. •Remember? He's the boy who Uyed down the block-from you. • He ran around with your boy who is"; graduating from college this spring. He used to come in for a Sunday night snack last summer and he escorted your Mary to the dance when her steady boy friend . failed to show up one time. Remember? When he was smaller he played baseball in the backyard with the other neighborhood kids. Remember? Do you recall how grateful he was when you did him a little turn one time; how he Slid with honest eyes, "I want to repay you some day?" Well Bill is doing that today and more. He and his buddies are fighting as their fathers and their grandfathers fought, for. liberty. WThat are you doing at home to help them? Are you riving some type of work to defense welfare? Are you buying defense stamps and bonds? Are you fighting for Bill? * • * THE TIN CANS O you have a tinge of conscience every time you toss an empty tin can in the garbage? Well you needn't bother. A friend has discovered that tin cans which may be reclaimed are not destroyed at the city dump heap but are stacked. They will be available if heeded. * * * i SUGGESTION Mrs. H. C. Powell says she •believes a patriotic feeling ,.would be stimulated if moth- •"" ers of boys in the service wore •white stars as done in World ;. L War No. 1. * * * CMA PROGRAM O FFICERS of the South Plains Civic Music association are overjoyed at the excellent response that has met their soliciting for renewals and new members. -Jovial . Sain Harrington who comes each spring to help conduct the campaign says he is not too. surprised since Lubboek has always supported the association and he felt such would be the case this year, war or no war. : "I knew that • those -who could possibly afford to'.- place their name on the member ship roll this year would do so..and insure "their town once" "m'bre^fof ""outstanding talent. They know as well as I that we must keep our living standards high,"-he said Thursday. If memberships continue to pour into headquarters in room 307 of the Hilton hotel, Mr. H. has promised a "big surprise" for next season. OUT OF RUTS D Reel 'Cross Work Placed First Among Activities By Clubs O NE may offer thanks to the war for one thing, a lot of people have been jolted out of living ruts. And we aren't referring to Lindbergh or Wheeler. We mean the ordinary run of people; those good folk who pay taxes, go to church, see a movie once or twice a week and are busy now with their Victory gardens. We know a young boy who was stuck with a filling station job. He couldn't move up because he was not trained for any thing better. But today he is studying airplane mechanics and if he comes through the war okay he will not have to go bsck to wiping windshields or filling gas tanks. « • « # rpHERE was a young fellow who •*• could never quite make up his mind as to what he wanted to do. Along came Uncle Sam and helped him and now he has been rescued from a rut that was threatenting to lower his morale. We are thinking of another young man who worked with his father because his father made him feel he couldn't get along without him. Well the father hired somebody else when his son left and chances are he will never come back to that job he disliked so thoroughly. We know of women who' borrowed all of their ideas from their husbands until " these husbands left for camp. Now they are be- alert, using- their own coming' minds. The ruts we sink in may become so deep it takes a terrible jolt to free us. For such as that, the war is that terrible jolt.
