As Mayor of Port St. Joe I wish
to take this means to congratulate
the laymen of the churches of Port
St. Joe for their fine work in re-
,gards to the Church Attendance
I have noticed with much satis-
faction the distinct rise in church
'attendance since this Crusade be-
gan and the leaders of the Crusade,
the laymen of our churches, are
to be commended highly for their
work in making this Crusade, the
first in Port St. Joe, so successful
from the start.
It Is my every wish that this work
will be continued throughout the
Crusade an throughout the year
as the ministers of our city and
nation strive to bring God back
into the hearts of man during these
trying and dangerous times.
Very sincerely yours,
J. L. SHARIT,

Garden Notes On
Crepe Myrtle Planting
Crepe myrtles are to the South
what lilacs are to the north. If
you would have these lovely blooms
in your garden next summer, this
is the time to plant.
Almost any soil is suitable as long
as the drainage is good. But lots
o fsuinshine is important. These
plants are ideal for new subdivi-
sions where bulldozers have thor-
oughly cleared the land because
they like full sun and come quick-
ly into bloom.
Select the largest and sturdiest
plants available. Prune both roots
and tops. Then dig a hole large
enough to accommodate the roots
without crowding ,set the plant in
place and fill around it with en-
riched topsoil. Water well.
