SINGLE COPY 80
by WESLEY R. RAMSEY
And here it is nearly Christmas
again. It seems like it just passed
in 1956. If the quick passage of
time is a sign of getting old-I just
wonder how short the years can
Of course the advent of Christ-
mas always brings Santa Claus
out of the mothballs.
We read where a preacher in
England is wanting to put Santa
back in mothballs--permanently.
He doesn't believe in Santa Claus.
And because he doesn't believe in
'Santa Claus he believes it is wrong
for kids to believe in Santa Claus.
We don't hold with that idea-or
with the idea that the belief in
Santa Claus is un-Christian. We
just believe that everybody at one
time or another fancied they could
see the old gentleman riding over
the rooftops at Christmas-time--
saint and sinner, preacher and lay
man. And probably nowhere in the
world will you find a "bad egg"
that is such because he believed in
anta Claus-or an athiest that
became an athiest from believing
in Santa Claus. An athiest believes
in nothing. A believer In Santa
C'aus believes in all the good things
i; life and kindness to his fellow
We believe that this movement
by the Englishman will get about
a', far as the proverbial snowball
will last where the athiest will go
when he dies.
Talking about San Claus, we
have received quit.ot few letters
to Santa this year-more so than
We want them to keep coming
and we reassure each and every
child that his letter will be publish-
ed and get to the proper channels
so that Santa will receive them.
We were sorry to hear the other
day that our compatriot in the old
newspaper business, Ed Bandjough
up at Wewa, is ailing. He has gone
to the Oschner Clinic in New Or-
leans this week to try and find
out what his trouble is. During his
absence this week W. S. (Wild
Bill) Smith, former publisher of
The Star is making up his paper
and The Star is printing it. So the
people will get their weekly Breeze
(referred to in polite circles as
The Whirlwind) right on time
Thursday morning as usual.
How do you like the cool wea-
ther? We like it and hope it stays
through Christmas-as a matter of
fact, we would like to see it snow
on Christmas day. And please don't
shoot us if it does.
We know of two good musical
programs coming up between now
and Christmas that you don't want
to miss. Sunday night the Long
Avenue Baptist Church is present-
ing a Christmas cantata- at 7,:30
p.m. Next Sunday night, December
22, the First Methodist Church is
presenting its choir giving the
"Christmas Messiah". You don't
want to miss either of these pro-
grams if you like Christmas mu-

Garden Club Notes
Oleanders may be pruned back
any time during the winter, from
now until about mid-February. Do
remember that this plant is poison
and the stems should never be used
for roasting iiiarr.lniimillo.w or wel-!
ners over the fire, There Is little
chance that children or animals'
will chew on the plant as it grows,
and the oleander has been a com-!
mon garden plant for years with-
out causing any fatalities except
when using directly as food. This
is asol the season for setting out
new oleander plants or moving old
ones. The oleander grows particu-
larly well in Gulf frontage yards.
It seems to thrive on salt winds
and requires very little care.

Just Call Me Cupid
Yesterday I stopped at t he
lunch counter about noon time.
As I was drinking' my coffee a
young couple came in. Now they
was only two empty seats in the
whole place, one on each side of
me. Before I could move the
couple sat down and didn't say
a word. I insisted the young fel-
low change seats with me. He
looked at me kind of funny but
he traded. I sure felt silly when
he said to the girl, "Sorry to
intrude m'am, but this feller in-
si ste d. My name's Chuck,
From where I'm sitting' it's
awful easy to jump to conclu-
sions and sometimes it can be
embarrassing. In fact, it can be
mean and intolerant, like the
way some folks jump to the con-
clusion that a person is "wrong"
to like a glass of beer instead
of other refreshments. Not
known' the facts and not using
good judgment can usually stir

But the Indians had other ideas as .
they came right back to score on
a 55 yard drive. Both teams batt-
led on through the second quarter ,
without scoring. The Sharks were
struck back with costly fumbles
and some beautiful punting by the
Indian's kicker. Early in the third
quarter the Choctaws broke loose ,
for a 60 yard TD and the Sharks
were out of the running from there
on. The Indians went on to score
two more TD's in. the fourth quar-
ter to end the rout with a 27-7
Despite this loss and an earlier
loss to DeFuniak Springs, the
Sharks climaxed their most suc-
cessful. campaign in Coach Craig's
10-year tenure as head coach of
the Sharks. And -it is felt by most
people who follow the athletic
