Speaks To Rotary
Judge E. E. Calloway of Blount-s-

.lheir regular meeting Thursday. He
warned the Club that Americans
and especially 'American business-
men must ,return to the .use of the
Golden Rule in 'their dealings if
we are to ward off Communism in
North and South America.
Calloway brought the 'tone of his
'talk closer 'to home rby making the
statement that most of 'the property
in Gulf County was too valuable
to grow pine timber on. He declar-
ed that many concerns desired to
settle in 'this area and use land

that the trouble now in 'the South

lGalloway told the club of the
large tract- of land that changed
hands in Gulf County two weeks
ago. He said, "they didn't ibuy it

1,874,027 PEOPLE DID NOT DIE
Fifteen years ago, before the wonder drugs were
discovered, death claimed 10.8 out of every 1,000
people in the U.S. But today, the death rate is

tory. This means that 1,874,027 people DID NOT
DIE in the past 15 years--thanks to the antibio-
