There will be two services daily,
at 7:15 a. m. and 8:00 p. m.
"This will 'be a different kind of
revival," said the pastor. "There
will be no visiting preacher, no
entertainment and no collections.
We will have old-time gospel sing-

duets and choir specials, followed
by straight-from-the-shoulder Bible

Jo Serra, the old swamp rat from down

Tuesday to do a little electioneering and get

"You know," said Jo, "these here men and
wimmin-not to mention the kids-what are
drawin' down big pay envelopes every Sat-

their pay checks lately as they find a bigger
difference all the time between their rate of

things are goin', a guy making' $60 a week will

"Brother," replied Jo, "you've axed a ques-

more the' working' man or the man on the
street expects the guvamint to do fer him-
in simpler words, the more handouts he gits
to looking' fer with the idee that the guvamint
kin do sumthin' fer him which he can't do
fer hisself, or which can't be done by his fel-

shape of presents, which it don't first take
out'en his pocket by the taxation route. So,
the more the. guvamint .gives a feller, the
higher the taxes.

of financial dependence on guvamint is the

Lewis in the legislature. He has repeatedly

To the People of
I would like to take this op-
portunity of thanking the people
of Gulf County for the splendid
vote given me last Tuesday. I
want to congratulate Mr. Wilson
on his fine and splendid victory;
to thank him for his fine sports-
manship and clean manner in
which his campaign was carried
on; to assure him, and all the
people of Gulf County, that I am
ready and anxious to assist' him:
with all of my limited ability, in
the furtherance of any cause for
the betterment and, advancement
of our county and state.
You have been good to me;
you have honored me six times
by election in the past, for which
I am deeply grateful; I have
made an honest effort at all
times to represent the will of
the ,people. My successor is an
able and fine gentleman and I
know will make all of us a splen-
did representative in the legis-
lative halls of our state. I be-
speak for him the same co-oper-
ation ,that has always been
shown to me.
It is my earnest Wope that I
may continue to be called upon
to aid and work for the progress
and development of our county.
It may be that as a private citi-
zen I can be of greater service
than I have been able to accom-
plish as, a public official.
Thank you from the bottom
of my heart for the honors that
you have bestowed upon me and
with a fervent hope that we will
all continue to work together for
.a better and greater county and

Episcopal Rector Tells of "Tht
Church's Part In Develop-
ing the Child."
The third talk in a series of
studies on the adolescent child be-
ing sponsored 'by the local .Parent-
Teachers Association was delivered
Thursday afternoon of last week
by Rev. -Richard Corry, rector of
the St. James Episcopal Church, to
an interested audience -in the high
school auditorium, Rev. Corry tak-
ing for his subject "The Church's
Part In Developing the Child."
Rev. Corry outlined four phases
for youth to' follow throughout life,
being: (1) Worship. Center your
life in 'Christ, practice family
prayers, in. the home. Learn and
take on your responsibility to the
church. Make a habit of prayer at
all times during the day. Learn (to
thank God' as well as ask for more.
(2) Study. Organize discussion
groups, for the youth of todayy. Ap-
ply principles of Christ in prob-
lems facing children today. Teach
the child to think and .act for him-
self. Speak frankly about boy-girl
(3) Fellowship. Provide good.
wholesome recreatlbna- facilities
for the young people. Instead of
telling the-m' so many don'tts'
give them some "do's"., Teach them
creativeness. Let them do for
(4) Service. Teach th'e child
service to his parents, friends and
to his town. Let him become in-
terested' in their town; teach him
civic pride. 6
Following Rev. 'Corrys talk, an
open discussion was held and all

MAY CALL SPECIAL
SESSION TO RAISE
A special session of the legisla-
ture to raise teachers' salaries has
been agreed to by Governor Hol-
land, providing he and school
teachers can agree on- a plan and
a majority of both houses will ap-
prove such plan in advance.
Details are expected to be
worked out at a conference late
this month between Holland and
the Continuing Educational Coun-
cil. The council has proposed a
unit appropriation or $1000 a year.
Present unit is $800, since the gov-
ernor vetoed a raise to $950 passed
