Ever since I can remember,
the paper route has been the job
of little boys.
They have had this job so long
that the term "paper boy" has
evolved in our English language.'
Of course these boys aren't
really made of paper they are
just called that.
Here we had just about be-
come accustomed to calling the
boys that deliver papers "paper
boys" (In fact we were once

The paper boy looked sort of
funny as he. brought the Mobile
Register to the front door'of the
shop. We laid it down to the
fact that we were a little ill all
last week and thought maybe
we were just seeing things.
The next day we looked again
and still the "paper boy" didn't
look just right.
The third day we walked to
the door when the paper was de-
livered and sure enough we had
a "paper GIRL".
Now this week we are feeling
pretty good again and a glance
at the "paper boy" this morning
disclosed a boy again.
I would swear we had a "pa-
per girl" for a time but now I'm
not so sure.

The spoken word is given scant attention; the printed word
is thoughtfully weighed. The spoken word barely amserts;
the printed word thoroughly enovinces. The spoken word
is lost* the printed word remains.
In spite of all the cooing sounds emanating
from Moscow, it .is still something of a shock
to learn that Premier Nikolai Bulganin, heir
(more or less) to the dread authority of Lenin,
Stalin and Malenkov, is holding the first press
conference in the history of the Soviet the
first since the revolution against the Czarist
regime in 19171
Since the conference has not yet been held
as this is written, now is obviously the best
time to comment on how we think it's going to
Going into our trance, we see happily sing-
ing workers decking the once-forbidding walls
of the Kremlin with garlands of forget-me-nots
and signs bearing that famous quotation of the
late Will Rogers, "I never knew a man I didn't
like". Soon, the droshkys (jet-powered now,
and without horses) begin arriving with the cor-
respondents. Replacing the traditional be'is are
loud-speakers trilling, "To Know You Is To Love
Inside the Great Hall, the great man speaks:
"In celebrating Bastille Day with our. friend:; at
the French Embassy on July 14th," he says, "it
occurred to us that this would be a good time
to unlock our own Bastilles and free all the
political prisoners who have somehow collected
from all over the world." J
"What about the slave-labor camps, Excel- a
lencey," asked a reporter.
"Out!", bellowed the great man with a sweep
of the arm. "They no longer exist. Only those v
remain who wish to work at union scale, with ?
Iringe benefits and a guaranteed annual wage.
Also," he declared, "we have reduced the work-
ing week to four days with coffee-breaks -
and free vodka. Square-dancing will be institut- :
ed as soon as the professors arrive from Ameri-
ca, perhaps next Saturday night."
"Is there a new attitude on purges, too"
asked another newsman.
"Da," replied his Excellency, "Throat-slitting
poisoning and pushing a rival off of anything
higher than a foot-stool are renounced as in-
struments of national policy, and become mis-
demeanors, first class. And those who confess
to crimes against the state are to have their
mouths washed out with soap."
"Regarding the Iron Curtain ." a reporter
"There is no such thing," snapped the Great
Leader. "We just scrapped it this morning -
and if there is a junk dealer in the house, will
he please come forward and make a bid?"
At this point a dove alighted on the leader-
issimo's upraised index finger. He took a note
from its mouth, read it, and dashed off to his
summit villa in Geneva where he had rejected
the Swiss offer to string barbed-wire barricades,

The latest innovation to come to our at-
tention is "soup-on-the-rocks". Shudder if you
like, but try it anyhow. Here's how you do it:
Fill an old-fashioned glass (or any other large
glass) with ice cubes. Open a previously chilled
can of beef bouillon (not consomme) with a
beer-can opener, your Boy Scout hatcher, or
whatever implement is handiest. Pour over
the ice. Hesitate a moment while the soup gets
clear and you gather your courage then drink.
It's really a wonderful concoction!
Obviously, this soup cocktail is especially
impressive in hot weather. And while we prob-
ably shouldn't mention it, there is a health fac-
tor in addition to nutrition. It's the most agree-
able way we have found of replacing the salt
lost through perspiration.

BY RUSSELL KAY
There is a song that admonishes
us to count our blessings and I
often wonder if we Floridians ever
stop to do so. Living as we do,
surrounded every day' with the
charms and advantages thatttend
life in such a favored state, it be-
comes an easy matter to take for
granted and overlook the fact that
in comparison to countless millions
.of other less fortunate folks, 'we
are blessed beyond belief.
Every now and'then I have occa-
sion to entertain guests or relatives
from other states. It is then that
I realize how blessed I am, being
privileged to live in Florida.
Not long ago I had visitors from
the Midwest. They come from an
area that gets plenty hot in sum-
mer and plenty cold in winter.
At my suggestion they came to
Florida on their two weeks summer
vacation, and believe me, it took
a lot of insisting.
Like most folks who have never
been here at this time of year, they
had the impression the heat would
be unbearable, that all attractions
would be closed because it was
summer and they wouldn't have
They had driven down in their
car and, lilke most folks with a des-
tination in view, found the trip
more of a burden than a pleasure.
Tired and worn out from steady
driving, they tumbled' into bed on
arrival and I could tell they were
sorry they .came.
Next day, we took them on a lei-
surely trip to Cypress Gardens and
Bok Tower. Like kittens with their
eyes just open they went into ac-
tasy. Freed from the task of driving
and fighting traffic, they had an
opportunity to see things as they

They were tremendously impres-
sed with our busy, bustling West
Coast cities, got a whale of a kick
out of the Plant, City State Far-
mer's Market, the giant phosphate
operations around Mulberry and
Bartow, the well kept citrus groves
of Polk County andthe busy pack-
inghouses and processing plants.
The thrilling aquatic show at
Cypress Gardens took their breaui
away and the solemn beauty ri'I
peaceful atmosphere of Bok Tower
moved them deeply.
Next day we visited St. Peters-
burg and the Gulf Beaches, then to
Tarpon Springs for a look at ...-
sponge fleeet, and dinner at Papp..s
famed Greek restaurant. Then cn
through New Port Rickey to Weeki
Wachee Springs where th.
the underwater ballet and took the
boat trip down the river. On the
way home we stopped at Kartke's
restaurant at the International Air-
port and had Frank fix us some of
his out-of-this-world steak dinners.
Of course a summer visit to Flor-
ida would not be complete without
a fishing trip so we went after
tarpon the next day. My friends had
never caught anything larger thi--
a river cat or a sunfish, and when
I used a whole catfish for bait it
knocked them for a loop.
The tarpon were not very coop-
erative but we did catch a big drum,
several good sized jacks and a
cobia. Twice some hefty critter,
probably a shark or big ray, tore
up our lines and smashed our
tackle. A little after sunset we
pulled anchor and headed for home
but I kept a couple 6f troll lines out
fitted with tarpon spoons then
it happened! A silver king hit one
of the trolls and leaped ten feet in
the air, shaking his head like an
angry bulldog. He threw the hook
and it came sizzling back toward
the boat at express train speed.
My friend had to duck to keep from
being hit with the sinker.
His eyes were bugged out and
he was in a cold sweat. I never saw
a guy so excited in my life. When
we reached shpre he registered in
the Rudy Schaefer Fishifg Contest
and the Tampa Tarpon Tournament
-and couldn't sleep all night for
thinking about going' out again the
next day. Now he knows why I
like to live in Florida.

Three- In- One Cookies
Vanilla cookies, chocolate cookies, orange eookles--all from one basic recipe
for refrigerator dough. Let Three-In-One Cookies save kitchen time for you.
Smartest car on the road-bar nonel The Custom Royal Lancer by Dodge.
Not long ago, you had to figure on spending
a lot of money if you wanted to step up to
a big luxury car. Then along came this new
Dodge-and things happened!
People who were used to paying a thousand
dollars more found that Dodge offered all
they could desire-at a sensible price.
Owners of medium-priced cars discovered
that for the same amount of money, or
less, the new Dodge provided much more
roominess, comfort, and more pride.
More, small-car owners found that several
models of this big new Dodge even cost
less than a tricked-up "lightweight."
Right off the bat, Dodge sales doubled! And
we're taking advantage of skyrocketing
sales to make you a "Drive It Home" deal
you can't turn down. Come in today!

"A new "drop-out" recomputation
one of the provisions of the 1954
social security amendments, may
provide monthly benefit increases
for many current beneficiaries,"
social security district manager
John V. Carey said this week.
"The law allows a recomputa-
tion of the benefit amount by drop-
ping out up to four or five years
of low earnings or no earnings. In
many cases this will have the ef-
fect of raising the average month-
ly wage and increasing the monthly
"One of the requirements for the
drop-out recomputation is six calen-
dar quarters of coverage acquired
after June 1953. This requirement
could have been fulfilled as early
as October 1954 if the social se-
curity recipient had been paid at
least $50 in wages in the last calen-
dar quarter of 1954 and in the five
preceding quarters. Thirty-six hun-
dred dollars paid any time In 1953
and thirty-six hundred dollars any
time in 1954 would also satisfy this
requirement. Also, more th an
twelve hundred dollars in social
security credits during the year
1954 may entitle you to a recom-
putation if your benefit amount
was not computed or recomputed
"The 1954 amendments provided
a general benefit increase which
was automatic for all present reci-
pients of monthly checks," Carey
emphasized. "However, the drop-
out increases are not automatic.
If you qualify, your applications
should be filed promptly in the ?-o-
