HONORS MEMORY OF OCALEE
The "Ocaleean Ensign," the high
school paper, publishes its first issue
today. We don't think we are say saying
ing saying too much in pronouncing it the
brightest school paper, we ever saw.
It gives reason for its name as fol follows:
lows: follows: "We scarcely -realize, now, amid so
many signs of civilization, that our
beautiful city was once the home of
a tribe of Indians. Such, however, is
the case. Their chief they called
Ocalee. The Indian -village came to
be named after him. Finally this term
was changed into the musical Ocala.
Now, when we came to name the
newest and dearest enterprise of our
hear s, we could think of nothing
more appropriate than to call it after
the first "brave" of the district. Even
as he stood for the nobility of natural
strength and vigor, just so, we hope
for our ENSIGN to be the 'standard
of all that is best in our school."

The city council is correct in pass passing

speech. There are some native-born
Americans around here that are more
learned that in gout, also rheumatism, the kidneys do
not work properly to throw off the uric acid poison;
consequently uric acid crystals are deposited in and
about the joints, in the muscles, where an inflam inflammation
mation inflammation is set up in" the nearby tissues.
Hague fias said, that gout is rheumatism, and
rheumatism, is gout." If uric acid is formed in excess
within the body it is passed on to the kidneys, which
act as a filter to pass off this poison. If the excess is
not excreted by the kidneys, it is distributed thru the
tissues.. The choice sites for such storage are in the
joints, muscle-sheaths, where the circulation is weak weakest,

Consequentl5we must do everything to throw off this
uric acid poison, and simple methods are best. Flush
the kidneys by drinking six to eight glasses of water
between meals. During winter months the circulation
is apt to be sluggish and the blood stream retarded.
Eat Jess meat, drink more

FIRESTONE Rims arc another example
of Firestone leadership. If all cars
were equipped with Firestone Rims,
motorists would save millions of dollars
a year. Tires now worn out unevenly
and prematurely on squeaking, wobbly
rims would &ive more miles or service and
infinitely more satisfaction to owners.
Only Rim Made by
Firestone lon& ao realized that a &ood Rim
was essential to tire satisfaction. The market
was searched and none was found. So
Firestone went into the Rim business that
car owners might have a 100 per.cent rim.
Time has proven that tire men can build
the best Rim.
