ETAOIN SHRDLU
by WESLEY R. RAMSEY


Christmas, and the time for the
wishing of "Peace on Earth" has
come.
We suppose that this is the first
time in many years that Christmas


has come and there is truly "Peace
on Earth", from the standpoint ol
no guns being firedat atny rate.
We read an article about twc
weeks ago, that we think would
very well apply to the granting of
all good wishes at Christmas time
and would surely put the spirit of
Christmas into operation through-
out the whole world throughout
the year.
This particular article had to do
with the curing of juvenile de-
linquency, but we think it would
also apply to many other ills in
the world as well. The article, writ-
ten by a prominent New York judge
opined that the placing of father
back at the head of the family
would cure juvenile delinquency.
We heartily agree with him.
It would also cure the soaring di-
vorce rate now surging out of all
reason over the country. And that
old adage "Charity begins at home"
would become a reality and spread
to peace throughout the world.
We can be bold in our statements
along these lines because we don't
look for father to be put at the
head of the household overnight.
And then there is the question
of whether or not father deserves
to be at the 'head of the house.
In many cases he does not.
The Christmas season would cer-
tainly bear this out. What kind of
a father is it that will go off hunt-
ing or fishing on a family holiday?
What kind of a father is it that
will get drunk on a family holiday?
What ki..nd of a ,-ther 1E It that
will use a family holiday to make
the rounds of the hotspots and ne-
glect his' faImily?


Sharks Lose To



Bay High, 45-44




Game Goes Into Overtime Period

With Score Tied At 43 43


'Port St. Joe's basketball coach
Marion Craig took the Sharks to
Panama City Firday night with one
thing in mind-to upset the Bay
High Tornadoes-and they almost
did. The 'St. Joe cagers fought back
from an eight point half time defi-
cit to a 42-43 knot at the end of
the regular game and reluctantly
-bowed out at the final whistle, 45-
44.
As the game went into overtime
Port 'St. Joe had already lost their
big scorer, Terry Hinote, on fouls,
ten seconds into the extra period
they lost their other big threat,
All-State selection Wayne Tayl'r.
Still they managed to -hold 'on and
fought hte Tornadoes to a stand-

the game, Bay High sank the win-

in the game with a jump sho'. Both
teams then warmed up fast to bring
the score to 16-12 favor of Bay

points in the quarter on a deadly
jump shot.

Social Seau

As the year 1957 draws to a
close we find that nearly 7 billion
dollars were paid out under the
Social Security Insurance system,
John V. Carey, District Manager,
announced this week. These month-
ly benefits went to nearly 11 mil-
lion men, women and children. They
received these benefits because of
retirement, disability, or death of
the family bread-winner and, of
course, the benefits were received
as a matter of earned right instead
of charity.
While the total amount paid 'ut
under the Social Security Insurance
system is an enormous figure, our
most frequent complaint is that
"Social Security benefits aren't
enough to live on", Carey added.
This complaint high-lights the fact
that social security is only designed
to provide a basic floor of financial
protection. The tax rates under so-
cial security are low and, accord-

The phrase "outer space" is corn- vitational fields of suns and plan-


only and erronerously used in
connection with the edge of the
earth's protective blanket of air,
the National Geographic Society
says. In proper usage ,outer space
means 'the incredibly distant reach-
es among the stars and galaxies.
Three Regions
Geographically, space is divided
into three regions; interplanetary,


ets tug at matter traveling in space.
Beyond Belief
Distances are beyond belief. The
nearest star visible to earthlings
is Alpha Centauri. It would take
a jet plane going 70 miles an hour
almost a million years to raech it.
Earth's atmosphere, compared
to space, is a hotbed. Its lower lev-
els brew weather. In upper levels


the local space in our own solar tides surge back and forth with
system; interstellar, that among the power of a million atomic


stars; and intergalactic, the count-
less trillions of miles among galaz-
ies such as the earth's own Milky
Way.
Properly speaking, space beings
at th limits of the earth's atmos-
phere. The thickness of the grad-
ually thinning blanket of air is not
known. It may be several thousand
miles-or far less.
As yet, man has climbed only
some 20 miles from the ground.
Rockets have reached to 250 miles.
The Russian satellite shot into its
orbit at a reported height of 560
miles. The mysterious ocean of true
space lies beyond.
Popular Fancy
In popular fancy, space is a cold
and silent void, inky black except
for the steady white blaze of stars.
Now and then a huge meteor roars
through the eternal night, trailing
a skirt of flame.
Actually, scientists remind sci-
ence-fiction fanatics, space is no-
thing. Being nothing, it is neither
hot nor cold. The molecules in space
are too rare to give it any tempera-
ture at all.


i \Any tmieroid that one might
meet in space would not roar or
flame. For space has no atmosphere
to carry sound or make a moving
object incandescent. Only atmos-
phere can turn a speeding meteor-
oid-most are smaller than a grain
of sand-into a meteor or dazzling
"shooting star."

In Troposphere
Sandwiches in the troposphere
and stratosphere is 99 per cent of
our air mass. Virtually all life is
concentrated in the former, which
has an average height of about 10
miles at the Equator and five miles
at the Poles. Above it, extending
to a ceiling of about 20 miles, is
the serene stratosphere where Jet

At Christmas time, may our hearts open wide,

to the meaning of the day, and the birth of our Saviour

y that was the greatest gift that ever blessed mankind ..,

So, while we bestow and welcome gifts of all kinds

I during this happy season, let us remember best

His gifts to us the spirit of Faith and Hope,

Peace and Good Will, and Glory u-to God...

From where I'm sittin'... y Joe Marsh

, There'll Always
S Be An Expert


Drove out to see how they're
getting along with the new su-
per highway that's going to pass
through town.
While I was there a fussy lit-
tle guy-a spectator, like me-
came up to the foreman on the
job and started making all sorts
of suggestions: "Shouldn't it go
a little farther left there? ...
Why don't you bank the curves
more? .. Those ditches are
awful close" and so, on and
on.
The foreman took it as long
as he would then asked politely,
"How does she look for length?"


From where I sit, free advice
is called "free" because it's
usually not worth much. That
little fellow was typical of the
kind of "expert" who can't re-
sist getting in digs-about how
you work, what you wear, why
you happen to prefer a glass of
beer with your supper. People
like that don't mean to be trou-
blemakers ... but the road to
real intolerance is paved with
their good intentions.

MAY WE OFFER YOU A FORMULA
FOR A REALLY JOYOUS CHRISTMAS?
Why not spend this Christmas the only way that will
give you true happiness? Let Christ, and His-spirit of
love and mercy dwell in your home and heart where
He rightfully belongs. You, in turn, will have the peace
and joy, the affection and respect of your friends and *
loved ones which should rightfully be yours.
May we urge you to abstain from alcoholic beverages
during this Holy season. They -destroy all that Christ
stands for, and can bring only sorrow and unhappiness
to your home. Children, wives and mothers become
neglected, often are hungry and without enough cloth-
ing. Alcohol fosters distrust, dishonor and disrespect.
Death and destruction and untold miseries follow in its
wake. Don't let these things happen to you.
Christmas belongs to Christ. Why not let him truly
belong to you?
