Jimmie Greer assures us that we
may now appreciate the finer things
in life, since we have partaken, of
his favorite dish; outside of Stan-
dard cup grease, that is.
Jimmie, who has a passel of kin-
folks in Georgia, and. where they
even eat 'coon, has extolled the
virtues of his favorite food on' us
for as long as we both could stand
it. ,Last Friday night he took ad-
vantage of an opportunity to over-
eat on this his favorite food, and
roped us in on the dubious honor
of joining him in this repast.
What was the dish?
Referred to, in more polite socie-
ty as chitterlings.
People like Jimmy, Buck Griffin,
Tiny Jones, Walter Graham, "Mat
Dillon" McCalvin, and such as that
sat down to 0. C. Dykes table up
in his Seafarer Restaurant Friday
and ate those things like we would
chocolate cake. Also eaters were
J. D. Clark, Jack Hammock, Wayne
Buttram, and Tnavis Aplin also put
away the hog guts, but they didn't
want their names mentioned. So
we won't -mention them. .
The king eater of the crowd was
the host himself, 0. C. Dykes. If he
eats that way all the time, I'm
sure glad I don't have to feed him.
Now, how Were those 'chitter-
lings? We are happy to report that
if the wind is blowing away from
you, they taste pretty good.
We read in the paper the other
day where the world thinks that
Russia has an atomic- powered
airplane. Now isn't that nice. Ac-
cording to a statement from Rus-
sia when they were leading in bal-
listic missiles, the airplane is now
obsolete. So what good will it do

We think you are going to like
the new h0ur for having Santa
Claus visit in Port St. Joe this
year. In years past, the old gentle-
man has made his call in the after-
noon and many parents just
couldn't get to the affair with their
children. This year's visit is being
designed so that the -entire family
can attend together and take their
time enjoying talking to Santa
Claus and seeing the sights and
It will really be a big produc-
tion this year and hope you will be
out this evening to enjoy the vee-
ning with your family.

egut said the work on this $397,-

of unsurfaced road, an 800-foot
concrete bridge and an 840-foot
The road will be an extension

- Because, whether you knew it or not -

Claus that he will cancel all appointments turn
off the "Western Roundup" on TV and make it

Santa Will Drive His Sleigh

Christmas Seal Sale
Has Taken In $177;
Goal Is Set At $1,200
Collections Are Above
This Time Last Year
Junior Class To
President Lawrence Bissett of Present 3-Act
the Gulf County TB and Health
Association this week reported that
the sale of Christmas 'Seals in
Gulf County during the first two
weeks of the traditional campaign
has brought in a total of $177.00.
In making this report, President
Bissett says that "though we are
far from our goal of $1,200, this is
still some 20% ahead of last year's
contributions at this time."
He said, "I wonder if people
know where this money goes? I
wonder if they know that last year
Gulf County contributed $500.00 to
a team of physicians engaged in an
important research project. Re-
search will someday lick TB, and
you, through your purchase of
Christmas Seals, are sharing in
this work just as actively as those
doctors holding up test tubes in a
"Besides participating in a finan-
cial way", Bissett further stated,
"your own local Gulf County organi-
zation has recently been able to ob-
tain agreement from the county
that they will carry indigent pa-
tients for 60 days after their dis-
charge from the TB hospitals. This
rehabilitation program is one that
has never been given much publici-
ty, but is, nevertheless, a real prob-
"Further", he said, "we as an or-
ganization dedicated to the stamp-
ing out of TB are lending our full
support and backing to the local'
Health Department in their pro-
gram to have all food handlers in
the county take thorough .physical
examinations designed to detect TB
in thosewho handle food in public
"So you see", Bissett concluded,
"Your dollars stay busy when you
send them in to pay for Christmas
Seals. TB can he licked. Help us
and have a share in the victory.
Buy and use your Christmas Seals."
