"Frank,- I heard of a fellow who

Lakes the other day" (The implied

Now when preachers begin be-
lieving such tales as this it is time
to overhaul the habits of fisher-
There will be no more tall tale
No more exaggeration.
No more boastful bragging that
borders on lying.
If we have become so convincing
with our tales of conquest over the
finny tribe to where it convinces
the preacher (who is 'trained to
detect liars) then it is time to do
something about it.
But to crown it all off, is the
fact that a preacher would repeat
such a tale as this-and wouldn't
even tell us what hole this fish
was caught in.
Of course this kind of stretching
the point goes on all over. Take
the government for instance. If
they are no more than a few bil-
lion dollars over the budget, they
are "practically in balance". That
few billion will make no difference
one way or another.
But, lordy me, I can hardly write
one billion down in figures, much
less visualize how anybody could
ever acquire that much money.
If I go over my bank balance-
or my budget, whichever you please
-the bank returns my check. The
good old government can write rub-
ber checks all day long and we
just overlook it.
The ones who know the condi-
tion of our schools are doing a
good job of spreading the story.
Tommy Owens, Leroy Bowdoin, B.
B. Scisson, HbPert Richards and J.
C. Traweek are regular evangelists
spreading the word around in the
right places. And, they are being
Their story is striking home, on
the immediate needs of Gulf Coun-
ty's school system. We predict that
the people will do or demand that
something be done about it.
JIs the present-day Leroy, the
same 'Leroy we supported? We
don't believe so.
Whoever heard of a sane Sou-
therner acting like he is?
And now, he is advocating tak-
ing away the secondary road fund
from the counties.
That means little counties like
Gulf will just be out of the paved
The large counties want the sec-
ondary money to purchase rights of
way, The small counties will just
have to do without.
wre just Imagine you had better
get in touch with Cecil Costin and
tell him you want to continue to
get nice paved roads in Gulf Coun-
ty and you expect him to go against
the Governor's wishes to keep them.
And if ypu know any other legisla-
tors, it won't hurt a bit to let -our
wishes be known to them also.
'On the segregation question, it
would appear that the Governor had
rode the fence so long he would
have saddle sores. And then when
he got off to treat them, darned if
he didn't get off on the wrong side.
County Will Buy
Two New Trucks
The County Commission this
week began" publishing bids to pur-
chase two new trucks for the
County Road Department.
The advertisement specifies that
the County will not pay for the
new vehicles until February 15,
Bids will be received until March
10, 1959 at 9:00 a.m., CST at which
time they will be presented to the
Board for action.
Barke said that the first thing to
do is balance the budget to keep
the nation on an even financial
keel. "This does not mean that the-
present tax payers must pay more-
taxes", said Barke. "There are
many sources of new taxes that
have not been tapped that would
more than meet the country's deft.
Barke called attention of the
club members to the climbing stock
market. He said that the market
was not climbing because of such
good returns on money. He placed
the reason at the climb to the cri-
tical state of government financing.
He said that people are afraid to
buy long term Government bonds
because of the decline of the dollar.
He said that for the first time in
history, some foreign nations are
discounting the dollar on foreign
markets. "The stock market is
climbing because investors-can get
a small quick return on their in-
vestments", said Barke.
The decline in the dollar, accord-
ing to Barke, can only be overcome
by a balanced budget.
To provide more money to bal-
ance the budget, Barke urged the
taxing of cooperatives, which are
now tax-free. "Taxing of the prb-
fits of cooperatives will bring bil-
lions into the U. S. treasury ', said
Barke. He also urged an_.. ,yerhaul
of the tax structure on savings and
loan and mutual savings banks in-

What Is The Value Of Prayer?
What is the value of prayer? Can success in life be truly
attributed to it? Can it really move men to the kind'd'f effort
that makes for greatness?
-"Yes," says President Dwight. D. Eisenhower. And "Yes," tod,
say nearly 400 other American and wo;ld leaders in a newly pub-
lished book, "We Believe In Prayer," an inspiring compilation of
candid expressions of faith and experience -with the power of
prayer, as wqll as such personal
yet universal supplications as
President Eisenhower's "The
Prayer of the People."
These vignettes of faith, com- .
piled by Lawrence M. Brings,
and published by T. S. Denison
& Company of Minneapolis, rep- \
resent a cross section of religious
groups that include such out- --"
standing men and women as, .

Art Linkletter, Lily Pons, Henry -
J. Kaiser, Steve Allen, Dr. Wern-
her von Braun, Prince Rainier, Personal Statements by World
and hundreds of others. Leaders
"We Believe In Prayer" serves
not merely as an illuminating lieve," says Mr. Leverone, "that
insight into the spiritual think, prayer is the only method by
ing of the men and women in which men may be inspired with
whose hands so much of world the vision to recognize the truth
