School Purchases Must
Have Written Order
Principal Leroy Bowdoin urges
that all Port St. Joe merchants
request a written permission
slip from students before charg-
ing any merchandise to the high
school or any of its activities.
Bowdoin said the reason for the
move was that the school receives
bills each month for merchandise
that was not authorized for pur-
chase by the school. Although
the material was used at the
school, and no pupils are buying
things for themselves on the
school's account, the faculty of
the school wants to keep up with
all purchases. Along this line,
they request local merchants
refuse to sell any Items to stu-
dents unless they have written
permission to make the purchase
for the school.

Feeling sorta low these days and
having some difficulty getting that
Christmas spirit you'll find runn-
ing high in Boyles Department
Store. It may be just 'plain envy
that you guys and dolls in Port St.
Joe, Florida are having it so easy!
. No ice, no snow, no buses to
wait for while the chilly winds
blow no wild and reikliess
crowds jostling you 'round in the
stores no salespeople giving
that icy stare when you're a little
slow making up your mind no
long lines to buck when you nee:
to cash a check or buy some stamps
No, you're able to walk or r;,,.;
down the street leisurely and safely
. stop a minute to pass the time
of day with a neighbor, and maybe
pick u.p some good tips on gift% to
buy at BOYLES. You'll get a warm
welcome there and might as well
make yourself at home. Take your'
time ask as many questions
as you wish get free gift wrap-
ping. I'll make a bet you can buy
several nice gifts, go home happily
and 'have lunch on the table before
I could get in a store here and
find a salesperson. They have a
habit of hiding behind the counter
here and when you're lucky enough.
to find one they'll send you 'o an-
other floor and by the time you've ,
managed to jam and push your way
through four or five floors you've
not only lost your strength and
patience but your Christmas spirit
as well. You've consumed several
hougs and decided to go home for
a rest. Next day you'll go in another
direction and chances are you'll
have the same experience. Your en-
thusiasm, good health and general
resistance may enable you to carry
on for a week or so but many peo-
ple are choosing a new plan a
"do it yourself program". They go
home and make their own Christ-
mas gifts. It's much easier and
more economical than trying to
shop in a metropolis. This is not
a bad plan provided you're lucky
enough to be on a 35 to 40 hour a'
week job. However, there's usually'
an abundance of work at home
without extras and I'm still in fa-
vor of shopping for diversion, plea-'
sure and the general satisfaction
of getting prompt, pleasant, effi-
cient service along with purchases
of wanted items.
Now, I see the why of my low
feelings .. Just homesick, and
want to do my Christmas shopping
at BOYLES, Port St. Joe, Fla. .
the store where home folks serve
home folks and every purchase
rings a Christmas bell inside you.
Merry Christmas to all,

n on the road.
There's never been an engine-drive com-
bination like this one!
Chevrolet's Turbo-Thrust V8* introduces
a radical new slant on engine efficiency with
the combustion chambers located in the
block rather than in the head. Turboglide*
-the other half of the team-is the only
triple-turbine automatic drive in Chevy's
field. It takes you from a standstill through
cruising in a single sweep of motion. Har-
ness these triple turbines to a 250-h.p.
Turbo-Thrust V8-or the 280-h.p. Super
Turbo-Thrust*-and you step out instantly
in any speed range. Nothing else on the road
goes into action so quickly, so smoothly.
Your Chevrolet dealer has the combination!

From where I'm sittin'... y Joe Marsh
Had some young folk visit last
weekend. Nice tidy kids. '1'h:y's
talking about modern iiviig and
all and started clearing out the
shed. They piled all kinds of
box es and things cut to be
hauled to the dump. They were
surprised when I put a lot of it
bac.: in the shad and told 'em I
just wanted to keep it. They
tried to explain that it was no
good to me and I shouldn't be
so durned old-fashioned.
From here. I'm sittip.', it's
awful easy for wyome people to
get carried away with other peo-
pie's affairs. Take another thing
for example, I like a glass of
ale or beer in the evening. I get
a lot of pleasure out of it be-
cause I like the flavor. Now it's
hard for me to see why people
want to come 'roun an' throw
my stuff out of the shed, but it's
a lot harder to see why other
people want to stop me from en-
joyin' my evening refreshment.

Part of these funds were contri- uy Christmas Seals

amount this year and next. The
local funds are derived from the

Dr. Kimler, who is Instructor,
department of bacteriology, Uni-

will study a group of several drugs Gifts for the Whole
to determine their effect on the Many Values Offered D
"The chemicals to be tested", he-
said, "are a group of compounds
which are similar to Vitamin K, a
vital link in the complex chemical
reactions which take place during
blood-clotting. Several of the chem-
icals are known to slow down, or
stop, the growth of the tubercle '
bacillus in the test tube. Strange-- .
ly, close chemical cousins of this
group of drugs are produced in 'M
minute quantities by the tubercu- .
losis organism itself when grow- .
ing in pure culture."
Dr. Kimler will study these rela- < "
tionships in a series of experiments | 7 "
designed to clarify the growth pro- ,
