A- GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP
Do you sometimes get up in th.-
morning feeling. tired, restless, full,
of tension, as if you hadn't had any
rest at all? Perhaps you did not
have a good night's sleep. A good
aight's sleep is usually dependent on
.wo basic 'factors-the amount of
deep and the type of sleep.
The amount of sleep required
raries -considerably in individuals,'
)ut an average of eight hours is a
good yardstick. ,Some persons fare
rery well on a few hours of sleep,
while others feel miserable with less
than nine or ten. Most persons learn
heir own sleep requirements and
Sidjust- their daily schedules accord.
The type of sleep plays a very
important role in achieving proper
est; A restless sleep, interrupted
frequently by fitful periods of wak-
ming, is not conducive to good re-
>air of body tissues.-A good, sound
leep can provide complete recovery
rom previous fatigue. "'
Since sleep is :essential to goo-.
aealth, every effort should be mad,
:o establish good sleeping habits
Freeing the mind of all care an
worry is highly important. Thern
are few problems which can't wait
until the next morning for solution.
Room temperature should be mod-
erate some' fresh air is desirable,
but not too much in cool weather.
Bed clothing should be comfortable
as should sleeping apparel. Some
persons like pajamas, for example,
while others prefer no clothing at
all. Sleeping pills and powders
should be avoided unless taken un-
der a physician's supervision.
Help yourself to a good night's
sleep by training yourself to sound
sleeping habits. Then you can won-
der tomorrow why you were sc

This probably will be our last trip

large portion of Canada.
We would like to give credit for

Non-profit organizations that are
totally .exempt from taxation may
want to look into social security
coverage for their .employees in the
near future, John V. Carey, district
manager of the Panama 'City o-
cial security office, said .this week.
Action on the part of such an or-
ganization prior to January, 1960,
will permit social security cover-
age of such employees as far back
as January, 1956.
'.Th4'Internal Revenue Service de-
termines when-.a non-profit'organi-
zation is totally exempt from .tax-
ation, Carey added. However, reli-
gious, literary, educaitonal and
charitable organizations generally
may qualify for '-total tax exemp-
tion.- Any such organization may
obtain social security, coverage fqr
its workers by -filing a waiver with
the Internal Revenue Service agree-
ing. to pay the employer's share
of the social security tax, provided
two-thirds of the organization's em-
ployees sign a .statement with In-
ternal Revenue 'that they want so-
cial security coverage. The only
employees of such an organization
who cannot ,gain social, security
coverage in 'this manner are minis-
ters in theexercise of 'their minis-
terial -dutties and employees who
are. paid less than '$50.00 per calen-
SIt could be very important to
employees of such organizations
that they obtain social security
credits as far back 'as January
1956. Under a special rule in deter-
mining ,the requirements for an in-"
sured -status, continuous credits af-
ter 1955 could give benefit rights
on retirement or, death, whereas
such a worker might not have bene-
fit rights under .the regularr rules
for- an insured stfiuis.
The non-protf rgaxization dis-
cussed -above that attempts 'to ob-
tain social security coverage for
its employees after 1959 will be
limited to a retroactive period of
no more than four calendar quar-
ters, Carey concluded. Boards of
Trustees a n d other governing
groups -of such non-profit organza-
tions may want to look into this
matter right away. Information is
available from your social security
office. The office for this area is
located at 1135 Harrison Avenue.

AS SIMPLE AS THAT
The subject of pensions for our war veterans is an extremely
delicate one. If anyone 'suggests that we have gone too far in
providing these benefits, even in the case of illnesses and disable-
ments which did not arise from military service, he is in danger
of being accused of heartlessness, and of putting the dollar above
Editor Francis Horrigan of the Park Rapids, Minnesota, En-
terprise -- a. veteran of 46 months service with the Army Signal
Corps, part of it on bloody Guadalcanal -- has taken that risk.
And what he writes is well worth reading and remembering:
For the widows and orphans of the servicemen who didn't
make it back home -- let's do for them. And let's do, too, for the
men who made it back, but not as whole men. Spend money
for veterans' hospital services; pay compensation to those who
were hurt -- and pay, too, for needed rehabilitation programs.
"As for the remainder of the boys who donned a uniform
when the Nation was attacked one can only ask those seeking
'How do you figure you got a pension coming from Uncle
'Because I went to the defense of our Nation in time of
War!" they might reply.
"To that there is but one answer:
"What you did, Mister, was go to the defense of your own
neck, first of all -- and those of your loved ones -- and those
of the rest of the Nation, in that order.
"The choice was made easy for you by Japan and Germany:
"You --- and every other G. I. -- could 'have set it out.
But you'd soon have been on a diet of rice with no pension,
most likely, from.either; Hirohito,or Hitler.
"Or you could -- as you did -- join with those selected to
serve -with you in defense of our Nation and thus, with the
help of God, save your own neck -- and those of your loved ones.
"And that's the way it was, Mister --'just as simple as

The sun has a stimulating and
-beneficial effect on the human
body. The tissues of persons ex-
posed to plenty of outdoor sun-
light' appear in better condition
than do those on. whom the
ultraviolet rays of the sun sel-
dom fall. Sunlight also seems
to have good effect on the tone
and vigor of the muscles, includ-
ing. the muscles of the intestinal
tract and the heart.
The powerful invigorating
property of the sun, although it
is 93 million miles away, has a
tonic effect on the entire human
body, giving a feeling of well-
being and buoyancy. Following
pleasant sunbaths, the nervous
system is more at ease and
even the mind seems stimulated.
Sunlight produces many whole-
some responses in the human
organism. Proper exposure to
the sun may increase the gen-
eral metabolism, improve sleep
and appetite, raise resistance to
bacterial infections and "tone
up" the blood. -
As with many other .- good
things, too much sun can do
much harm. Overexposure to
sunlight can case painful and
serious injury to the skin, bring
on fevers and headache and
even cause malignant growths.
Farmers, sailors, fishermen an4i
gardeners who are excessively
exposed to the sun are especially
subject to cancer of the face and
