Kingston Spy, The (Newspaper) - April 27, 1944, Kingston, Wisconsin THE KINGSTON SPY "A Home Owned New f piper Devoted to the I Merest! of the Home FoUu." VOLUME KINGSTON, WISCONSIN, THURSDAY, APRIL 27, 1944 NUMBER 27 IN THIS COLUMN By E. W. W It la iwt rtr but honorable conduct, and a nobli1 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, mo- 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 tt-at despite the little sacrifices we make at home, the man at the front is out-doing us a thousand to one Relatives and friends should provide servicemen with a continual flow of good, new- sy, cheery letters When sending let- ters overseas, we suggest using V- 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 nail- ing this paper to local servicemen However, we hope that this does not mtenwpl 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, fa- mous places, narrow escapes, and so forth, are topics than can be writ- ten about without mentioning any names or places, thus staying with- 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 over-bur- dened complaint department There doesn't seem to be much that we can do atxmi u WIUIUUL vr eration of the public, so we pass it along to you Our visitor charged that Green Lake Coanty 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 sta- ted that salvage collection should not be a once-a-year affair, but should be ragarded as war produc- tion, and should be earned on con- tinually 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 iuoic ciiihus 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 confront- ing us that was evident two years ago when a large stockpile of waste paper was gathered and stored in the 01 1-J we got started when the demand for paper subsided, and we hope this won t happen again We wish that fat salvage commit- tees the War Savings Staff waste paper salvage committees scrap me- 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 commit- tees who are dumb enough to think that any newspaper would or could run a fraction of the stuff that is sent us One 10x12 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 togeth- er, and then thinking about the many reams of this (tuff that hiU me wb wr can see where a good-sized lump of the taxpayers money u going down the drain If Uncle would use the money that u wasted this way to with newspapers i momyi worth Dunne two and yean we chromcbd.tlkt of (CwMMrt Oik Urt FtM Lester Klelsmeter Pilot Wings IS!
