ment to change the "Stop"' sign

gin to see steady, well-f6unded improvements in our situation.
Panania City is just.starting to feel the pinch. Will they bear up
as well? Port St. Joe people have learned by not having the
.money. to afford the lixury of going on a trip to shop, that they
can do just as well or better here in Port St. Joe. Merchants in
Port St. Joe are becoming more and more aggressive with their

We are of the opinion that conditions are about as normal
as they can be anywhere in abnormal times. We are progressing,
and we want the world to know it, because progress comes where
progress is evident.
Hunting the :Bobwhite
One of the most interesting birds in the United States is
the bobwhite, which is called a partridge in some sections of the
Southeast and quail in most parts of the country,
The bobwhite is a game bird which thrives on seed, peas
and weeds, and who prefers to walk rather than fly. Bobwhites
are beautiful birds, with brown and white feathers, black and
White dots, with the male of the species featuring a snow-white
ring around the neck.
They are comparatively thick. and- plump for birds and
excellent eating fare on the table.
The season is in in most parts.of the country and hunters
all the way from New England to Florida, and west as far as
Iowa, are hunting the bobwhite. They are hunted usually with
dogs, which point the coveys, and the hunting season is fairly
long, by normal hunting standards.
The bobwhite has many enemies, and most of them in
existence in the fall are dead by the end of the hunting season.
We write this editorial about these fascinating birds in the form
of a plea to hunters to spare the last few birds in a covey, because
the number of this popular game bird is constantly decreasing,
particularly in the highly-populated states.
The bird is becoming more rare because large-scale farm-
ing operations are increasing, pasturelands are being increasingly
expanded, and poor land is being turned to timber. Insecticides
may also affect the bird population.
We hope hunters in this area will accept this very sincere
suggestion in the tradition of good sportsmanship.

qu cly 'have the latest facts .n'
which to make credit and sales de-

street reporter receives a business
man's financial statement in ad-
vanoe of his periodic call, he can
make a more detailed analysis of
the financial condition of the busi-

Back of each 'listing of a business
in the Reference Book is a Dun &

port includes the following: a his-
tory of the business (who owns it,
who runs it, and how long it. has
been operating); a description of
what the business does and how it
does it; a financial section which
usually includes the latest finan-
cial statement; and a record. of
how the ,business pays its bills.
While credit reports are primar-
ily used -by business men who want
to evaluate the credit risk of a bus-

surance underwriters also use cre-

and' coverage for fire and other
types of insurance.
Take a Tempest out on the highway and put it through
its paces. This car is a whiz at moving into fast-stepping
company. on an expressway. Takes you from a standing
start to a safe operating speed in seconds ... gets you up
a steep hill in high gear.
Run the Tempest over the roughest road you can find. It
rides like the big ones because it's balanced! The engine's
up front-the transmission's in the rear. And it's got
independent suspension at all four wheels. Tires dig in
firm on curves and turns. Full 15-inch wheels make car
look big. Tires last. Brakes run cooler.
Before it hit the market, Tempest had 3,000,000 miles of
testing by engineers, pro drivers and a team of teenagers.
Its reliability checked out 100%. Owners have rolled up
millions more. The only kick is the one it puts back in
driving. Try it!

Necessary to Christian
An old, old question is: 'Can I
be a Christian without joining the
church or attending its services?"
The answer is yes. It is possible.
But it is something like b.ing a
student who will not go to ~':tciol,
or a soldier -who 'will not join an '
army, or a citizen who does not pay
his taxes and vote. It is like a sea-
man on a ship without a crew, a
salesman with no customers, an
author with no readers, or a foot-
ban player without a team.
A farmer was trying to ,teach his
young son to plow. The lad had ex-
perienced much difficulty in keep-
i g his rows straight. The father
aidm, "Son, pick ,out some object
in the other side of the field and
keep your eyes firmly fixed on i:
as you run the row. The lad looked
across the field for a moment and
then started out. The row he at-
tempted was as crooked as could
be. When he had returned to the
,ide where he had started the fa-
ther said, "Son, what in the world
happened? That is the worst row
eet. Why didn't you pick out an
objectt as I said?"
The ,boy said, "I did," and point-
ed across the field.
