Before- we do anything else in
the column this week, we are
going to tell you that the City
has not hired another police-
That policeman, Emmette Mc-
Calvin who helped investigate
the stabbing out in the quarters
last Saturday, is our own "Mat
Dillon". The name McCalvin is
merely an alias he used for his
birth certificate, to write and re-
ceive checks and for identifica-
tion on his draft card only
mundane uses. For the more
important get-togethers at the
coffee shop and signing traffic
tickets, he used his new norm de
plume, offered (free of charge)
by Cliff Harper and Jimmy Cox.

arrested for stealing cars last
Earl Chitty parked his car and
ran to the post office. When he
came back, his car was gone.
Earl went posthaste to report his
mishap to Buck Griffin. Griffin
sent out a state-wide alarm for
the car and began looking for
it himself. About an hour later
he was parked by the city hall
and saw a car coming down the
.street with John Sowers and Earl
Chitty in hot pursuit. They stop-
ped the car, which was Earl's,
and there sat Otto Anderson,
wondering what was going on.
Otto had taken the wiorng car
and had been to his place of
.business, home and all over town
and hadn't discovered his error.
We had a birthday yesterday.
Our 30th one. We remarked to
Joe Dowd that we were getting
old, what with nearly half our
allotted time here on earth now
gone by. Joe allowed as how
that one should never consider
anybody old except those that
are at least 15 years older than
ourself. All of which went to

Rev. Bill Iverson, pastor of the
First Presbyterian Church here in
Port St. Joe has been called to
become pastor of the First Reform-
ed Church of Newark, N. J. One of
the grand old churches of the fist

ed in the 1600's.
'Iverson will preach his first mes-
sage there on Palm Sunday. He
