Kingston Spy, The (Newspaper) - April 27, 1944, Kingston, Wisconsin THE KINGSTON SPY A Home Owned New f piper Devoted to the I of the Home VOLUME KINGSTON WISCONSIN THURSDAY APRIL 27 1944 NUMBER 27 IN THIS COLUMN By E W W It la rtr but honorable conduct and a dis- position that make men great We suppose that in SO or 75 years people will be calling these days pioneer days and the deadly dern warfare of today old tune stuff All of us know the importance of mail to our men in the service and especially to those at the front We also know despite the little sacrifices we make at home the man at the front is us a thousand to one Relatives and friends should provide servicemen with a continual flow of good sy cheery letters When sending ters overseas we suggest using Mail It s a reliable way and also conserves space needed for shipment of vital materials While it is im- possible for us to follow our own suggestion we welcome letters from servicemen for publication Time that we could use each week for answering letters is taken up ing this paper to local servicemen However we hope that this does not the flow of letters to this office News ot men and women m service wherever they are rates first with all the folks at home Descriptions of countries people climate interesting experiences mous places narrow escapes and so forth are topics than can be ten about without mentioning any names or places thus staying in the bounds of military censorship In return our list of addresses may be used anytime by people wishing to write to local members of the Ar- med Forces We'll also keep sending the Spy to servicemen as long as we have the correct addresses A fellow from the War Production Board stopped in at this office the other day and registered a com- plaint with our already complaint department There doesn't seem to be much that we can do u vr of the public so we pass it along to you Our visitor charged that Green Lake was very slack in salvage collection efforts and that this community and the surrounding communities should by all means stage a salvage drive in the near future Tin kitchen fats scrap metal and especially paper is needed at this time He further ted that salvage collection should not be a affair but should be as war tion and should be earned on con- Two things hamper us when it comes to salvage drives We lack organization and efficient methods of the disposal of scrap materials Many people have in- formed us that they have a large accumulation of waste paper which at this time is very much in de- mand but no one ever calls for it We believe that if the county was well organized and permanent ar- rangements made for scrap disposal people would snow and the WPB would not call us slackers In view of the urgent need for paper at this time we hope that this community gets started very soon and not wait until the demand for paper subsides We don't want the problem of disposal ing us that was evident two years ago when a large stockpile of waste paper was gathered and stored in the 01 we got started when the demand for paper subsided and we hope this won t happen again We wish that fat salvage tees the War Savings Staff waste paper salvage committees scrap tal salvage committees and a dozen other committees would cut down about three-quarters on the mats and publicity material that they send to us We sometimes wonder if there are fellows on those tees who are dumb enough to think that any newspaper would or could run a fraction of the stuff that is sent us One Kraft envelope that we received this week contained enough mats and copy to fm full newspaper pages Knowing that it takes a staff of experts to plan and manufacture these mats and another staff to get the copy er and then thinking about the many reams of this tuff
