The Journal this morning announces

No. 2. Ir. Preston makes the follow
ing statement relative to his can

worked on the papers of our city for
the past twenty years. I am a con

"Under the old aldermanic adminis
tration I was honored by the voters of
the city by being elected to a position
on the Board of Public Safety which
I held for two years.
"I believe in a system of permanent
roads and bridges which will put this
county on an equal footing with some
of the other counties of the state which
have such good roads. I believe that
this county should as soon as possible
put in a permanent road to the Lil
lian bridge and also one to the east
by the way of Ferry Pass connecting
up with Santa Rosa county and that
Pensacola and Escambia county would
benefit greatly by so doing.
"While the Board of County Com
missioners I understand has no di
rect control over the building of public
schools, I favor the building of a high
school that will at least equal the
construction and appearance of our
beautiful county jail building, and I
think the children of our community
are at least entitled to as much com
fort as the criminals, which they have
not today." Paid Political Adv.

INDUSTRIAL AND SALVAGE DIVIS
ION HAS SAVED MORE THAN
THREE-QUARTERS OF A MIL
LION TONS IN TEN YEARS.
Atlanta, Ga., Mar. 11. To assist in
relieving the acute shortage of news
print paper which is seriously hamp
ering the publication of newspapers
and magazines throughout the country
the Salvation Army urges all firms and
individuals to save their waste paper
of whatever description.
The wagons of the Salvation Army
visit every street in every city where
a Salvation Army corps' is located at
least once every two weeks and gather
up this waste paper after which it is
baled and returned to the mills to be
worked over into news print paper.
About 50,000 tons of waste paper
have been turned back to the mills in
the last twelve months by the Sal
vation Army according to computa
tions made by the national head
quarters in New York City.
In five southern cities alone, ac
cording to Captain C. C. Lever, man-
ager of the industrial department in
Atlanta, more than six million pounds
were returned to the mills last year,
and this does not include the thousands
of pounds that were saved for further
use in the dozens of other cities and
smaller towns in the South where the
Salvation Army operates.
"Had the Salvationists not gathered
up this, enprmous volume of waste
paper a small mountain in size," says
Captain Lver, baled it and returned
it to, the mills to be remanufactured,
the paper would have been burned by
householders and stores, or otherwise
destroyed and lost to the publishing
industry. And at the same time the
Salvation Army was giving jobs as
'wastepaper harvesters to hundreds of
"Money raised with the sale of baled
waste paper maintains our eighty-five
industrial homes in - various parts of
the country where men not able' to
support themselves are given . such
light work as they are able to per
form and those who can't work at all
are maintained without charge.
;. "The Salvation Army practices com
mon, sense salvage as well as salva
tion. It not only saved for publishers
of the United States more than three
quarters of a million tons of paper In
the last ten years, but in the process
it put thousands of human derelicts
on their feet."
Troop 3, Boy Scouts, will meet at
the Y. M. C. A. at 3 o'clock this aft
ernoon. This meeting will take the
place of the Friday night session which
has been called off on account of the
