Sharks Defeat Bay
High 'B" Team
By 27-0 Tally
Sharks Will Go Against
By WILL I. RAMSEY
The St. Joe Sharks rolled on to
their third straight victory to de-
feat Bay ii,-i, 'B team, 27-0.
The Sharks had little trouble in
holding the punchless Tornadoes to
a shut-out. The 'Sharks .struck
quick as Wilford Elliott scampered
53 yards on the 'Sharks first offen-
sive play for a TD. The Sharks
scored again in the second quarter
as Wayne Taylor intercepted a Bay
High pass on the 50 and romped
down-to the 14. The :Sharks moved
the ball down to the one yard line
where Blair Shuford sneaked across
for the score. Taylor's extra point
was goo dand the :Sharks led 13-0
at half time.
The Sharks struck again in the
third quarter as theta Sharks drove
down to the Bay one yard line
where halfback Ross Hudson stop-
ped across for the score. Early in
the fourth quarter tlhe whole crowd
was electrified as Bay High. in their
only threat, drove to the Sharks
one yard line. The Tornadoes QB
passed into the end zone where the
Sharks fleet halfback Wilford El-
liott intercepteditt and scampered
-111 yards, for the Sharks, final TD.
The Sharks reserves took charge at
thlii point and played the balance
of the game.
The Sharks meet a tough Ilounts-
town squad that was undefeated
until last week when they were
very much defeated 44-0 by Quincy.
This gatmie could be valuable in
summing up the Sharks chance
against Qauincy later in the season.

Castles By The Million!
"Just as it once became a fact that almost every family
could own a car, it now turns out that practically every family
can own a house."
This "astonishing discovery", borne out by the fact that
in the past ten years one out of four non-farm families has moved
into a new home of its own, is hailed in the November Reader's
Digest as "the biggest change in American living since Henry
Ford developed the assembly line."
Equally important, this revolution is being brought
about without the "Social Welfare flavor", and on private money
- not tax money. It's a business," writes Wolfgang Langewiesche,
in the article titled, "The Idea that Built Ten Million Houses".
"A builder puts up a batch of houses ten or 100 or even a whole
town. He does this on speculation, for buyers unknown; and
in competition with other builders who do the same. Anybody
may build any number of houses. Anybody may buy any house
he can afford. And a million buyers sign on the dotted line."
There is no Government subsidy involved, explains Mr.
Langewiesche, except in the case of ex-servicemen, who "can bor-
row a little more money a little more cheaply than the non-veteran
can". Also there's "some public housing welfare minded, Gov-
ernment-subsidized in the European pattern", but not enough to
change the broad picture of what is happening over the nation.
At the bottom of this amazing-expansion in home owner-
ship is a gimmick called "mortgage insurance" provided by the
Government which does not lend you money, but promises the
bank or other commercial lender that you'll pay it back. By
this means, you can borrow up to 93 percent (a veteran up to
98 percent) instead of the former maximum of two-thirds -
and take 30 years to pay it back!
Thus a 10,500 home may be bought' with a down pay-
ment of from $275 to $1200 and monthly payments of around
$72.50 and this payment includes repayment of the loan, interest,
fire insurance and real estate taxes: For this you can get two
bathrooms, three bedrooms, washing machine, clothes dryer and
Mr. Langewiesche raises the age-old question of the
morality and wisdom of enjoying a new home (or anything else)
"before you have paid for it", but thinks that 'Americans decided
this question in the case of the automobile". And an average mil-
lion new home purchases a year for the past decade would seem
to bear this out.
A home of his own is probably the average man't most
audacious dream. And if fulfillment is here, as it would appear,
it will bring with it more responsible citizens, a decline in juve-
nile delinquency and a dramatic closing of the gap in that Con-
stitutional "pursuit of happiness."

* Before you buy your next
truck, look at both sides of
Ford's story of value. You'll
like what you see.
Look at costs. Ford's first cost
is low. Resale value is high.
Modem Short Stroke engines-
V-8 or Six-are designed for less
friction, less wear, lower run-
ning costs. Maintenance coats
are lower, too, because Ford
trucks are built stronger for
rugged long life.
Look at what you get and you'll
see you get more for your money
in a Ford. For example, only
Ford gives you modem, gas-
saving Short Stroke power in
every truck, V-8 or Six. More
comfort with a Driverized Cab.
More safety with Ford's ex-
clusive Lifeguard features.
Look carefully consider
everything. You'll agree Ford
trucks cost less, give you more.
If you want a great deal-a
great deal more for your money
-see your Ford Dealer.
The big fleets buy more Ford
trucks than any other make
