We had a little note from that
"good, grey" editor up in Chip-
ley following last week's paper
in regards to our paper girl".
Editor Sellers wondered if may-
be that "paper girl" we thought
we had for a time could have
been a "paper DOLL".
Now why didn't we think of
that? The logical solution and it
We want to thank the good
editor for enlightening us. .

Like the good former editor
of The Star (we had just as well

Sellers is a fisherman. And like
the former editor of The Star,
he is such an ardent fisherman
that he bought a parcel of land
containing a small lake known
unromantically as "Mule Lake".
Upon occupying the place he
noticed the alarming lack of
mules and named the lake,
'Muleless Lake". Now what with
the dry spell and all the lake
has dried up and brought up the
name of "Muleless Lakeless".
The former editor of The
Star built himself a retreat up
on an outcropping of the Dead
Lakes and what with the dry
spell and all, the water has pack-
ed up its mud bank and quietly

There's Hungarian stew in a
mashed potato ring, chocolate

ribs, peanut butter, raisin and
orange pulp sandwiches, water-
melon, lemon and orange sher-
bet (all together, not separate).
We even had a pie the other day
that had raisins, dates, and co-
coanut for a filling. It makes for
an interesting meal. Just eat it,
and never mind what it is.
If you have a recipe that you

We have a little boy that tries
to catch every rain frog in the
yard to keep for pets. We have
found rain frogs in the refrigera-
tor, the washiing machine, the
bed and of course, the bathtub.
Can you name a cure.
We hate to bring all these
personal troubles to you the
reader, but we thought we may
find a solution for a cure from
someone. And maybe we will
find a fellow sufferer.
We see glowing reports in 'the
papers about the rainmakers up
around Gadsden County seeding
likely looking clouds and making
them unloose their moisture. The
weather reports for the last sev-
eral days have reported clear
weather everywhere over the na-
tion except this area. Do you
suppose this has any signifi-

rains but don't let on that they
are coming from this source as
we might be asked to pay part
of the bill.
This is the mildest July that
we remember in a long time.

ers will just last through August
we will have the cool fall wea-
ther with us even before we felt

it has been much hotter.

Name Pontiac "America's Greatest Buy"'
It takes only one word to explain why
today's Pontiac is the most popular
Pontiac ever built. That word is VALUE.
Buyers from both ends of the price scale
are finding that Pontiac provides just
about everything any car at any price can
offer. It's a matter of fact, not opinion, that
Pontiac is the biggest, most powerful oar
anywhere near its modest price!
For size, Pontiac reaches high into the
fine-car price range-and comes up with a
long 122" or 124" wheelbase. This is sis
where it counts, because nothing beat
wheelbase in providing solid comfort and
stability on any road at any speed.
Pontiac's performance is strictly Pon-
tiac's alone-and it stems from the most
modern, most advanced V-8 in the industry
Its mighty 200-h.p. Strato-Streak V-8 with
four-barrel carburetor provides more power
than any car within hundreds of dollars of
Pontiac's modest price.
Another Pontiac extra value, so easily
measured when you get behind the wheel,
is the supreme ease of handling that keeps
all its eager power and husky bigness under
instant and almost effortless control.
And if you interpret value in terms of
appearance-here again Pontiac's your
kind of car. Its distinctive Twin-Streak
beauty and Vogue Two-Toning will stay
new and fresh for years!
And for the final value clincher-bep.r
in mind that Pontiac prices fit easily into,
any new-car budget!
No wonder Pontiac sales are at an all-
time high! Come in soon and drive this
wonderful car. We're sure you, too, will
join the big swing to Pontiac!

For years now men have stood enviously

pair of cool shorts when the mercury shot up-

for some such "sensible" attire for men on such
days. Of course no one man had the courage

Today, the hunter and fisherman has no such

safely for many months.
You don't have to be a famous hunter like Davy

Farmers To Be
By JOHN V. CAREY
All self-employed farmers will be-
gin this year to build up 'Social Se-
curity credit toward retirement
and survivors insurance payments,
according to John V. Carey, District
Manager of th.e Panama City Social
Security District office.
Beginning with the year 1955,
persons farming for themselves
who make $400.00 net profit in a
year must report their earnings and
pay the iSocial Security tax to the
District Director of Internal Reve-
IN THE COUNTY JUDGE'S COURT,
GULF COUNTY, FLA.
IN RE: Estate of
JOE 0. DANIELS,
NOTICE OF FILING PETITION FOR FINAL
DISCHARGE OF ADMINISTRATOR
TO ALL WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
Nc:ice is hereby given that I have filed
my final returns as Administrator of the
Estate of Joe C. Daniels,. deceased; that I
nave filed my petition for final discharge
and that I will apply to the Honorable
J. E. Pridgeon, County Judge of Grilf
County, Florida, on August 15, 1955, for
approval of the same and for finai dischai.e
as Administrator of the Estate of Joe C
July 6, 1955
C. G. COSTIN, Administrator 4t
of the Estate of Joe 0. Daniels,
nue 'before April 15, 1956, .Carey
Carey did point out that ,the farm-
er may have a choice in arriving
at the amount he reports for Social
Security purposes. If his gross in-
come is $1800.00 or less and he re-
'ports on a cash basis, the farmer
may report his actual net earnings
from his farming operations or he
may report one-half of his gross
income. If the gross income is more.
than $1800F.00, then he must figure
his actual net earnings. If his net
earnings are less than $900.00, he
has the choice of reporting his ac-
tual net earnings or $900.00.
The self-employed farmer who
makes proper social security tax
reports will build up the same old-
age and survivors insurance pro-
tection for himself and his family
as others have 'been doing for

Charles Strickland and two sons
of Kinard came near to tragedy
on the White City bridge recently.
Mr. Strickland was driving toward
Port St. Joe with his truck loaded
with pulpwood. The current was off
at White City and the 'bridge had
been raised with auxiliary power
at night time to allow a tug to pass
under. In place of the usual warn-
ing devices, operated by electricity,
a chain with reflectors attached
had been strung across the bridge
entrance as warning. Too late
Strickland saw the warning and
crashed through the chain. His son
shouted that the bridge was open
and Strickland immediately turned
tis truck into the side of the bridge
stopping the truck scant
from the open span.

Your prescription gives you more
for your money than ever before.
Many an illness that now can be
cured in a few days with one
checkup by your doctor and one
prescription, formerly took weeks
...involving repeated visits from
the doctor, continuing medication,"
lengthy hospitalization, loss of
salary for time off the job. On
those terms, maintaining good
health is less expensive today than
ever before. It is the best invest-
ment you can make.
