ETAOIN SHRDLU
by WESLEY R. RAMSEY


You should have been around
at the "candy sacking" at the
Piggly Wiggly store last Thurs-
day night. The Merchant's As-
sociation members were busy
sacking up the many sacks of
goodies that the merchants gave
away in conjunction with the vis-
it from Santa Claus last Friday.
As usual at an occasion such
as this, there were some "com-
medians" present.
John Robert Smith and Char-
lie Wall would sack oranges a
while (until they got full of the
things), then they would swap
to tangerines (where they would
get full of them), then to the
candy (where they ditto) and
then to the nuts (where they
also dittod). John Robert kept
wandering all over the place
mumbling something about "I
wish some of these candy boxes
had something in them besides
gumdrops. I'm getting tired
of them after the first pound or
two." He dug up some choco-
lates from somewhere.
John Robert was force? feed-
ing Charlie Wall when Charlie
opened his mouth and said, "Hit
it John". John replied, "Good
gosh, man, how could I miss?"
Vic Anderson kept busy trail-
ing around "hunting oranges"
as the orange sackers "had only
a few (205) dozen left and he
was going to replenish the stack.
President Earl Atchison, (who
was just supervising) called up
Durel Brigman and asked "Are
you doing anything?". Brigman
said, "No, just watching TV".
Well the president had him then.
Brigman came down and started
stuffing balloons into the sacks.
Glenn Boyles smelled a rat when
Earl called him though and he
begged off b ae, 1f,; ci Iviiss
Earlma hadn't had him do the
supper dishes yet.
Bobby Bellows wife relayed
the message that he had gone to
Panama City to school (likely
story) and so his wife came in
his place. We might add that
she, and Bill Cargill's daughter,
Marsha and Barbara Mitchell
did most of the actual work that
was done. Getting this close to
Bill Cargill. You should see that
bugger eat walnuts. Like a squir-
rel he cuts them. We had E. J.
Rich stapling the tops of sacks
and .all he could do was hunt
some staples.
Almost forgot about C. W.
Long. We had to get that ras-
cal out of bed to come help. He
was just like the rest though. He
was on tangerines, and you
would have no trouble telling
where he stood, just by looking
at the floor.
'And what were we doing?
Shucks man, we were busy writ-
ing down all this stuff and help-
ing E. J. Rich look for staples.

Rev. S. J. Allen Dies

From Heart Attack

Rev. Samuel James Allen, 65, was
taken by death at 3:30 p.m. Tues-
day, November 31 in Selma, Ala.
Rev. Allen was pastor of the
Presbyterian Church here from
January, 1949 to 1951, and is well
re:nembered here.
A little known fact about Rev.
Allen was that he came from a
tough Philadelphia slum area. Af-
ter leaving school with only two
years of high school education he
had a burning desire for education
and the bettering of himself.
He went to the head of Pennsyl-
vania Military College and asked
for a chance at an education. Due
to his modest means, he was forced
to work part-time as well as work
at his education. Alien was a well-
remembered football star at PMC.
He graduated after six years from
PMC with an engineer's degree. He
had received the call to the minis-
try and through the aid of friends
and hard work he went through the
Westminister Theological Semin-
ary. Even with his excellent educa-
tion, which made him eligible for
large church pastorates, Allen ask-
ed' for "tough" assignments that
might be refused by other ministers.
Throughout his career as a minis-

Pedestrians Are Urged

S-D Day could just as well be

However, on Dec. 15 the walkers
as well as the drivers will have an
opportunity to prove that accidents

Gult county's first shipment of slash pine seedlings from the Florida Forest Service nursery arrived in
Wewahitchka last Friday. Gulf County Ranger Alton Hardy and Cubie Laird, County Agent (on truck)
deliver the first bundles of seedlings to Rudy Gaskin (ieft), and C. D. Borders, of Wewahitchka. The seed-
lings were purchased by International Paper Company Panama City, to encourage landowners to plant
more pine trees. Gulf County landowners received 246,000 free seedlings through the International Paper
Company program. A total of 502,000 seedlings will be delivered to Gulf County for planting this year.

especially so for the landowners
who received seedlings at the

has been authorized by the Florida

one-half mile of fire line free of

That along with other planting prep-

ARE YOU A HARD-HEADED SANTA CLAUS?
Whoever says Christmas is for the kids has
forgotten about Grandpa and Grandma. It's
the oldsters who really get the biggest charge
out of the Merry Yule Hence, it's time for some
commentss on the rejuvenating annual experience
of buying the srmall-fry and the medium-sized
fry too their heart'. desire.
Through the years the top request in Santa
Claus' mail has been the bicycle. And if this
is to be a bike Christmas in your house, remem-
ber that you're buying a fine piece of machinery,
and shop for it as carefully as you do for a new
car. A bike not only costs money, but it repre-
sents the culmination of precious dreams and
poignant expectancy. Also, it must be rugged
and responsive too, in order to stand up under
the demands of the youngster whose energy ex-
ceeds his coordination.
Look first for that "Made in America" label.
This assures you of getting a bicycle designed
and built for American boys and girls and Amer-
ican geography which must include school-
yard. and playground and cluttered vacant lot.
It must travel in gutters, on road shoulders, in
ruts, up hills and up and down over curbings.
Whether you are filling an order for a "standard"


bike, with balloon tires and coaster-brake, a
'middleweight" and narrow tires and coaster-
brake, or a "light-weight", with narrow frame
and tires and hand-brakcs, the "Made-in-Ameri-
ca" article provides every advantage to be found
in any bike made anywhere. Additionally, it
provides a margin of safety and stamina that is
act required in wheels that are built for sedate
adults to pedal on the flat roads of Europe.
Anyone who builds for American youth knows
better than to put out a delicate product.
It's a real tragedy when the Christnmas bike
folds up by New Years with replacement parts
hundreds or even thousands of miles away. And
it's rough on Dad too, meeting repair bills on
equipment that was never built for American
boys and girls, or for American geography. A
'bargain bike" can be a poor bargain indeed.
Merry Christmas should not, and need not,
have a morning-after.

MAY SWAP FOR UN SEAT
Red China's imprisonment of 13 Americans
as "spies" appears to him as a deliberate attempt
to goad this country into action that would di-
vide the free world, President Eisenhower told
his weekly press conference. He also said that
a blockade is an act in war, and pledged himself
to follow the Constitution and go before the
Congress for authority before taking such action.
Speaking of the UN, he said he did not see
how this body could retain its self-respect if it
did not accept some responsibility in trying to
help free the prisoners.
Word from New York the same day disclos-
ed that our Ambassador to the UN, Henry Cabot
Lodge, Jr., had asked the 14 allies who served
with us in the Korean War to demand United
Nations action in the matter of releasing the
decidedly unlucky 13.
But, since neither the US nor the UN has
been able to free the more than 500 American
POWs still held by Red China in defiance of the
Korean armistice, perhaps we shouldn't be talk-
mg about self respect.

the motoramic Chevrolet


The Bel Air 4-L.jor Sedan-one of 14 new Fisher Body beauties in three rnw series


Maybe once in a car-buying lifetime, you
come acrossesomething that breaks all the
old patterns and establishes new ones. This
is that kind of car. This is the true sOtory of
how Chevrolet and General Motors shaped
a i;naw idea in steel.

Like most good ideas;, this one is pretty simple. Chevrolet and
General Motors set our to build the first low-priced car that
Would:
bring you the ver-. freest and fnest styling to be had.
bringyou the most advanced engine design and engineering features.
bring you the kind of performance and the kind of ride that have
never been available before in a low-priced car.
bringyou the highest quality of manufacture and materials.
All this in Chevrolet's price field? That Jid take some doing!
And isn't it logical that only Chevrolet and General Motors
have the people, skills, resources and facilities, to carry out this
exciting new idea? Here is how


this new Chevrolet changes all
your ideas about cars!.


1 Real Show-Car Styling!
Your eye tells you the Motoramic
Chevrolet is no styling "patch-up"
job. A rakish, low profile . soft
swiftness from its sleek rear fenders
to its wide-eyed Sweep-Sight windshield ... a new outlook for motoring.
And that outlook doesn't change when you slip inside . exciting fabrics
and trim are harmonized with the whole car.
A Sensational Ride!
SYou liv the new idea instantly
: : you glide ; actually glide
^---- =- -^-'-- the punch" of the road in Chev-
rolet's new Glide-Ride front sus-
pension. And outrigger rear springs mean new balance in
turns . turns made so effortless by new ball-race steering.
Accd when you stop suddenly, new Anti-Dive braking control
check-. that nosing down in front ... you get "heads up" stop-
ping. Tubcless tires mean much greater protection against
blowouts. And with new high-level ventilation there's fresher air.

Power Beyond Compare!


You also feel the new idea _- W-
quickly .. quick power like
a panther's paw with the new
"Turbo-Fire V8" (162 h.p.)
and two new"BlIe-Flam" 6's. ,
And sparking this perform- r- -
ance is a 12-volt electrical '
system giving you better igni-
tion, faster starting, greater electrical reserve for any of the
power assists you might desire. You have a transmission
choice of economical Overdrive and improved, automatic
Powerglide (optional at extra cost) or standard shift.
Even Air Conditioning!
And if you desire the convenience of power assists (optional
at extra cost) . you'll find new power-steering and improved
power brakes on all models. Power-controlled windows and
powershift seat are available on the Bel Air and "Two-Ten"
models, while air conditioning may be added on V8 models.
Won't You Try It? .
Here, we can only tell you how successfully the Motoramic Clhevrolet
expresses the new idea behind it. But the car itself can quickly .show you!
Come ri for a demonstration drive, won't you, first chance you get.
