PUZZLE, Jan. 3rd, 2013

Previous Puzzle:  There were many good, correct answers to the “Merry Christmas” puzzle. Thanks and congratulations to all of you who participated.

New Puzzle: Some words can be used as both nouns and adjectives. In this teaser, you will be given a definition. That definition can be replaced by a single word that is used twice, once as an adjective, the other as a noun.

For example: "a 12 inch podiatrist specialty" is a "foot foot". Given the following four definitions, what are the corresponding doublets?

1) a current gift
2) a secure bank vault
3) a short formal statement
4) a fragile supply ship

The first completely correct answer gets the bonus point!
