HOL'I-DAY: A period of reci
Too often, holidays are any-
thing but restful for the host-
ess. If last year's festivities
left you exhausted, don't des-
pair. A few simple ideas can
make your parties for the com-
ing year easier, with less work
and more fun for you.
1)Use as few dishes as pos-
sible. Oven-to-table or stove-
to-table casseroles save pre-
paration and cleaning time.
Stainless steel casseroles are
an excellent choice: their
gleaming modern appearance
graces any table, and of course
stainless steel is easy to clean
and the most sanitary cooking
utensils you can buy.
2)Whenever possible, serve a
buffet. Let the guests serve
themselves. They will enjoy it,
and you can have time to enjoy
your guests. Arrange the food
attractively in trays "and cas-
reaction or rest Webster Dictionary
seroles, since eye-appeal makes
food "taste better."
e 3)Don't polish your table-
ware! This time-consuming
chore is no longer necessary if
- you use tarnish-free stainless
steel tableware and serving
pieces. Their elegant simplicity
is in excellent taste, and no
matter how often or how sel-
dom they are used, your stain-
less steel will always stay "par-
4) Bring Automation to your
kitchen. Electric percolators,
frying pans and a host of other
small electric appliances can
make cooking easier, will keep
second helpings warm. You will
notice that the finest small el-
ectric appliances in stores are
made of stainless steel; this is

A wonderfully useful folding seat makes every
Corvair two cars in one. Just one quick flip and you
increase the luggage and parcel space to 28.9 cubic
feet. And just as simply, you're back to comfortable
six-passenger capacity. It's standard equipment
... and extraordinarily practical.
Corvair does car-pool duty with the biggest
and best of them. Going to work or school or
out for the evening, you've got a genuine
six-seater. As for carting around piles of stuff
instead of people, just look at Corvair's station-
sedan load space with the rear seat folded. And
when that's full you can start on the trunk.
Corvair, you see, is no ordinary compact
car. No others are so versatile, so ingeniously
engineered-with independent suspension at
all four wheels, an air-cooled rear engine
that never needs water or antifreeze. You just
can't compare anything else coining out

Midget Invetments With
Elementary School Fourth Grades
Begin Study of Florida History
By MRS. JOYCE FAISON
The fourth grades of the Port
St. Joe Elementary School have be-
gun their 'study 'of Florida history.
Our chief purpose in this study
i.- to introduce to the pupils ths
history of their state. The primary
function is to provide a complete
story of the growth and develop-
ment of Florida from the time of
its discovery down to the present.
This history is written in a char-
ming narrative style that appeals
to all children. The language is
suitable for the fourth grade since
the sentence .structure is simple
and the ideas developed are well
within the comprehension of chil-
dren at this level.
Our method of study is of neces-
sity varied. On one day, the re-
search method may be used to find
answers to study questions. At
times, committee work is done on

Many people figure that since the car
they are considering has historically had
a "low-price" name it must be, in fact,
a low-price car.
This, at one time, was true. But today
the names of cars, as you may know, have
very little to do with their prices. Many
cars with traditional low-price names cost
more than Mercury-a name you have
always associated with higher price cars.
Our point is this:
A Mercury Monterey, with
de luxe appointments, is now
priced $31 to $66 less* than any
of the best selling Fords, Chev-
rolets, and Plymouths (the V-8
powered Galaxies, Impalas, and
Furys). Yet Mercury offers you
far more of everything you want
in a car.
Some new-car buyers are skeptical when we
tell them this price story. Here are some of
the questions they ask-and our answers:
Q "Do you mean Mercury is now a low-
price car? Did you reduce prices?"
A "Yes. Monterey prices are now $174
lower, and include many extras that
are now standard equipment."
Q "But in your price comparison, aren't
you talking about a 'stripped' Mercury
-with rubber mats, plain interiors,
no equipment, no glamour?"
A "No, we're talking about a de luxe-
appointed Monterey with beautiful
nylon interior and deep, thick carpet-
ing. The comparison is fair."
Q "Do all Monterey models have as good
a price story?"
A. "Yes, within a few dollars. It's the
most amazing value story ever offered.
Just read below."
SBased on comparison of manufacturers' suggested 1960 retail base prices for lowest-priced V-8 powered models.
MERCURY ADDS UP TO A BETTER LOW-PRICE CAR-Mercury has a 7
to 8 inch longer wheelbase than Galaxie, Impala, and Fury + 289 to 494 pounds
more weight + up to 23 % more insulation + more spacious passenger compart-
ment + self-adjusting brakes + up to 28% more visibility + more luxurious in-
terior + finer quality (every Mercury is road-tested before it is shipped, not just
spot-checked as all other low-price cars) = Smoother ride, extra satisfaction.
