Heroes At Home Include Wives
Of Soldiers, Captain Mueller Says
Heroes at home include wives of soldiers, Captain Alvin
Mueller, former Long theatre employee here who has dis-
tinguished himself over the Pacific battle zone, indicated in
a letter to friends.
Captain Mueller, who mailed the letter somewhere in
Australia, revealed that it was his wife who first suggested
that he join the air corps.
“Some credit should go to my wife as it was she who first
suggested that I join the air corps, and she has spent many
lonely days the past four years while I have been out flying
our bombers on practice missions and later in foreign
He closed with, “Just keep the planes coming and we will
use them.” And the way he “uses” them is healthy for all
but the enemy.
Man Eonugh To Make It Or Damn
Fool, Private Huddleston Declares
Private A. B. Huddleston of Markham is now training to be a
parachute trooper at Fort Benning, Ga. His address is Company G,
1st P. T. R., Fort Benning, Ga.
He writes: “I do not start my training until Monday (last Monday)
but from what I see and hear it is plenty tough. They have periods
of training and all of them tough. Most of the boys say that if anyone
is going to wash up they do it the first week. Not any disgrace to do
that for there is plenty of them that do.
“Confidenially, I am man enough to make it or damn fool enough
to break my neck trying.”

Old tires, tubes, that worn galosh’
Could put feet on a jeep, by gosh!
Save those rags; they’ll help to clean
Some Axis-smashing war machine.

But just the thing for ammunition.
That piece of pipe up in the attic
Would make shells for an automatic. ’
Manila rope, that burlap bag,'
Can help us give the Jap a jag.
Do your bit—get in the scrap
To smash the Nazi and the Jap!
HOW TO DO IT. Sell your scrap to a Junk Dealer. He sorts,
grades, packs, and ships it to the right place. Or give it to a
local charity. Or consult your State or local Salvage Committee.

WAR PRODUCTION BOARD
'Washington, D. C.
In a population of 8,000 people,
such as Bay City has, there are
bound to be a number of people
sufficiently interested in the wide
program of the American Red Cross
to want to work with it, but who
have not yet been contacted for
some type of service. If you as a
reader are one of this number, re-
member your time and energies are
needed in at least one of the fol-
Volunteer service and war pro-
duction work—knitting, sewing,
canteen corps, or motor corps.
Home nursing—training in prop-
er practices of home nursing is par-
ticularly important in these war
times when physicians are being
called into the service and away
from their practice.
First aid course—learning the
first principles of first aid, espec-
ially important in times of emerg-
Home service—handling cases of
needed relief by civilians, or men
in the service, or their families.
IF YOU WANT TO WORK—
and want to knit or sew—call Mrs.
J. C. Lewis, dial 2155, Bay Gity.
If you want to take home nurs-
ing, call Mrs. Thomas H. Lewis,
dial 2473, Bay City.
If yeu want to take first aid, see
Posey McLendon, dial 691, Bay
If you want to take canteen work,
call Mrs. Arthur Harris, dial 2973,
If pou want to join the motor
corps, call Mrs. Carey Smith Jr
dial 2786, Bay City.
If you can help in home service,
see Tom Hale, dial 2662, Bay City.
The field is calling—many tal-
ents needed—don’t wait for an in-
vitation to serve—JUST CALL
AND OFFER YOUR SERVICES.
That’s the American spirit. In com-
menting on the various activities of
the Matagorda County Chapter,
American Red Cross, Frank Shaw
Taylor, county chairman, express-
ed himself as very much pleased
with the fine support the work has
been given by all citizens of the
county. All parts of the county are
cooperating well, he stated.

May Be Called
Ir line with the law establishing
new classifications, married selec-

tinue to be drafted in Texas but
only as needed to fill local draft

vice headquarters transmitted to
draft boards copies of the service-

Earlier this week state head-
quarters had temporarily halted in-
duction of men married prior to
December 8, pending establishment
of the new procedure.
The new law said, in part, that:
“National interest requires that
all calls to meet the manpower re-
quire ments of the armed forcea be
filled on schedule and you are di-
rected to take such steps as may
be necessary to insure that result.”'

“Special ‘E. F. M.’ blanks, listing
the 103 fixed-text phrases provided
for the service, have been received
at the local Western Union office
where the outbound service was
started this morning. Members of

sending “E. F. M.” Messages to

correspondence, greetings, health,
promotion, money, congratulations-

“I fell overboard yesterday.”
An appeal for older men, women
and children to aid farmers in har-
vesting abundant crops came Sat-
urday from State Agriculture Com-
missioner J. E. McDonald.
McDonald said he had completed
a tour with state selective service
officials in an effort to study the
farm labor probelm.
"Farmers throughout Texas told
me they must have more labor than
is now available to help harvest
crops,” he said.
“Although I have been working
for some time on the proposition of
importing Mexican labor, I have
come to the conclusion that there
won’t bf■ much of this labor avail-
He declared immigration restric-
tions made importation difficult
and Mexico’s war declaration had
created additional manpower de-
mands in the neighboring nation.
