Sharks Need $160 Bad
To Go To Gator Bowl
Do you have $160.00 that you
don't need? If you only have a
buck or two that you can spare
it will help.
The football team is seeking
money to charter a bus to send
them to the Gator Bowl In Jack-
sonville on New Year's Eve.
The boys could go'on a school
bus, but they would have to leave
the day before the game and
come back the day following
which would make for a big ho-
tel and eats bill. If a bus can be
chartered they can leaye early
on game day and come back the
same night thereby saving sleep-
ing and eating expense. Their
trip would actually be cheaper
this way-and more comfortable.
If you feel that you could help
this fine team, drop by Smith's
Pharmacy and drop your paper
money in the iron bucket to send
the team to the. game.
They'll enjoy it and you'll feel
good for your part In It.
We would like to apologize for
the absence of the three nice pic-
tures we had for this week's is-
sue, including the deer mentioned
in ETAOIN SH'RDLU.
Somehow they missed the bus
from the Panama City News-Her-
aid Engraving Plant and will not
arrive until sometime today.
We will run these pictures next
week and hope that you will ex-
cuse us and the Herald for not
having them here on time.

The play deals with one of the
most hectic stages in a girl's life

herself too old to do what she used
to do, but too young to do what she
wants to do. 'That is exactly what
is staring Betty Lu Maxwell square

she could have everything her own
way. So they put their heads to-

CHAPTER 6 of SERIAL
CANEv A COPE
Heaven" featuring family life and
the taking of children to Sunday
S During the business, reports
from various committees were giv-
en. The sewage committee report-
ed that the sewage condition of the
high school would be taken care
of by the first of' January. A var-
iety show was discussed and plans
are that it will he held in January
to raise funds for the PTA. Mrs.
Rush Chism and Harry McKnight
were appointed to investigate the
building of ,a float for the dedica-
tion program, December 16.
A discussion was held on the
Youth !Center and on the activi-
ties concerning the STAC House.
Coffee was served by members
of the Tri Hi Y Club.
(Continued from page 1)
additional everyday items of the
times are shown.
The extensive collections of the
Florida State Museum that were
the source of much that is on dis-
play here have been accumulated
over many years of careful work
at the Museum. Many of the items
had been given to the Museum,
a department of the Univers-
ity of Florida, by interested
citizens of this State. Such dona-
tions continue to be encouraged by
the Museum which would like at
this time to invite local citizens
to contribute authentic historical
items relating to St. Joseph. Al-
though the displays for the Con-
stition Park Museum at Gainseville
would like, to replace items that
have been used from its collections
and, if possible, increase these
collections. Because of the de-
structive fire and the hurfrican
that destroyed St. Joseph, it is un-
likely that much now survives
from this old community. The cit-
izens of the St. Joseph area, there-
fore, are especially invited to con-
tact the Museum in regard to any
items of genuine historical value.
They are always, welcome addi-
tiono to the Museum's collections
and may well be enjoyed by others
in the future as present Museum
collections will shortly be enjoyed
by the citizens of Port St. Joe.
Any person interested in con-
tributing items to the Florida
State Museum collections should
contact the Director at the Mus-
eum in Gainsville.
