Now, take the case of John, who Al- though he’s been in uniform only six month he’s quick 'to pick up the army jargon. So, like as not, one of John‘s letters to his father will be something like this: Company X, 101 Infantry Fort Lewis, July 17, 1941. Dear Dad: Another detail of glamor boys arrived here today. They came to our area headed by a couple of NCOs in bathtubs. We were loading our bean guns v—and did their eyes stick out when they saw all the albatross, armored cows and army strawber- ries. CHRISTIAN SCIENCE “Truth” is the subject of the Lesson-Sermon which will be read in all Churches of Christ, Scientist, Sunday, July 27. Golden Text: “0 praise the Lord all ye nations . . ful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the Lord endur- eth for ever" (Psalms 117:1,2). Among the citations which com- prise the Lesson-Sermon is the following from the Bible: “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my dis- ciples indeed; And'y’e' shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" (John 8231,32). The Lesson-Sermon also includes the following passages from the Christian Science textbook, “Scie- |nce and Health with Key to the anser for 90‘ Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy: “Mortals will some day assert their freedom in the name of Al— mighty God. Truth makes man free" (pp.288:14-15;225:3). That Reminds Me BY RALPH HERBERT? . ._ TO the American grain farm- er, who finds his fortunes af- fected by adverse conditions in the world market due to the war, it may be a sort of Job’s comfort, but recent reports show that the tillers of the land in oth- er countries are in like plight. And perhaps worse off. Argentina, one of the great ce- real rivals of the United States, does not make parity payments to farmers as does the Ameri- can government, but it does seek to mitigate their situation by purchasing certain amounts, of corn. But great quantities of unsold corn are being spoiled, partly by weevils and partly because the grain is getting moldy or is decaying from other causes. , Omitting this spoiled corn'and considerable quantities which have been utilized for various Purposes within the country, Ar— gentina, nevertheless, has a sur- plus available for export amounting to about $475,000,- 000 bushels. A mere trickle of 200.000 bushels was shipped Out in April, May and June of this Year compared with about 30,- 000,000 bushels in the same pe- riod last year and oVer 52,000,- 000 bushels in 1936. THE deadly influence of war has ravaged the European market badly so far as Argen‘ tine exports of corn are con- cerned. Most European coun- tries, doubtless, wanted and needed the corn. Some, like Ger- many and Italy, were blocked off the seas by the British navy and a like fate later befell custom- ers like Denmark, Holland, Bel- gium, France and Norway. In the years 1930-1934, Great Britain’s average yearly imports of corn from Argentina were 91,922,000 bushels. Last year they were only 3,487,000. GERMANY in previous years averaged 13,687,000 bushels. Last year it got none. Italy aver- aged 13,339,000 bushels. Last year it got 2,043,000. Now under German domina— tlpn. Holland, Denmark, Bel- gium, Norway and occupied France can be counted as com- pletely lost as markets for Ar- gentine grain. The British block— ade will stop any grain going to Hitler-ruled countries. . For his merci-. l l l l playing with banjos. Behind the glamor boys came a detail of big Johns, who were out for Black Wednesday. We‘ve got a couple of bog—poc~ kets in our outfit, who soon will- be bubble-dancing. Next week I get some work with the Chicago atomizers. Our deugh punchers are darned good, and I'm one of the chow hounds. We have finished training with, the devil’s piano, and it was ding‘ how with me. Goodbye now. I’ve got to DT because I‘m in the 'dog show this afternoon. Nearby were some army brats l l .1: -': :9: Of course, when John’s fatheri receives that letter his eyebrows rise a good two inches, so great is: his puzzlement. It’s so much Chi- nese to him. But he finally recov- ers enough to write to the boy tol find'out what he’s driVing at. So: John straig‘htens out matters likel this: Dad, don’t you know that—- Glamor boys are selective serv-i ice trainees; NCOs are non-eom-l missioned offiCers and bathtubs are motorcycles with sidecars? Bean guns are rolling kitchens; ! albatross, chicken; armored coWs, canned milk; army strawberries, prunes. What are army brats? Well, Dad, they're the children of army personnel and banjos are army; shovels. g Black Wednesday? Calisthenics with rifles. Bog-pockets are tightwads and bubble-dancing is dishwashing. Chicago atomizers are automa- tic rifles and dough punchers are army bakers. I said I was a chow hound. That means I’m one of the, men always at the head of the! chow line. i A devil’s piano is a machineI gun and ,ding how means every-i thing is OK with me. DT stands for double time and a dog show is foot inspection. Ding how, Dad! Love, JOHN. Aluminum Drive Gets Under Way At 20th Century Patriotic folks in the Shelton trade area who are collecting oldl aluminum for the defense drivel will have an opportunity to turn their collections of old aluminum into valuable defense bonds and defense stamps, according to an! announcement made by the Youn- glove Grocery Company, sponsors of the 20th Century stores. Under! the plan as announced by Nortonl R. Younglove, president, individ-l uals and groups will turn in their collections of old aluminum at any‘ of the 20th Century stores where they will receive coupon-receipts attesting the weight of each batch turned in from July 21 to August 23 inclusive. When the contest has ended all coupon-re- ceipts are to be sent in for tabu- lation and the persons or groups turning in the most old aluminum will receive their share of the 365 prizes, representing $1,000.00 of defense bonds and defense stamps. The prizes are as follows: 1st—$250.00 bond; 2nd—$100.00, bond; 3rd—$50.00 bond; nine 4th prizes of $25.00 bonds; 150—-—5th prizes of $1.00 defense stamps and 200—6th prizes of 25c defense stamps. In addition there will be three “per capita-community prizes," at lst prize of a $100.00, bond, 2nd prize —— $50.00 defense bond, and 3rd prize——$25.00 de- fense bond. These prizes will be awarded to the high individual or group in the town or city turn-- ing in the largest amount of alum- inum per capita based on its pop- ulation as of the last census. “The contest affords an oppor-. tunity for individuals and groups to get busy and actually make. their patriotic effort profitable," said Wm. Sutherlan, store super- intendent, who is heading the drive. “At the same time our groups of independent grocers are doubling in their patriotic effort, first, in helping the aluminum drive and second, in providing a market for $1,000,000 worth of de- fense bonds and stamps.” Full and complete details of the contest are available at all participating stores according to Sutherlan. ‘The old aluminum collected in the drive will be turned over to the gov-l ernment along with that being turned in through other channels in the nationwide drive.
