A LOT OF MONEY
The,' newspapers ,say 'that the
probable 'damage to the Texas and
Louisiana coast will run around
$200 million. That's 'a lot of money.
This. will give you some idea of
how 'much the national debt is-
$285 billion. It takes a thousand'
million to make a billion. That's a
lot of jack, Jack.
They say the share of each citi-
zen in the national' 'debt comes to
around $2,500.00. I can't pay my
share, can you?

Two Forest Fires
Reported In Aug.
J. H. Pope, Dispatcher for the
Flor-la Forest Service in Gulf
County, reported' this week that
there were two forest fires during
-the month of August which burned
1.8 -acres of woodlands. During the
same month last year, two fires
burned 26 acres of woodlands.
To date -this year, 35 forest fires
have burned 220.1 acres of Gulf
County woodlands. During the
same -period last year, 33 -fires
burned 2,536.9 acres.
Pope said .that 'heavy rainfall dur-
ing August was -a big factor in
holding down woods fires.

IS YOUR BODY OUT
Everyone is out of line to
some degree. A slight lack of
symmetry in the human body is
Everyone is said to have some
is enlargement or overgrowth of
an organ or part. Hemi is a pre-
fix signifying one half. Hence,
hemihypertrophy is the over-
growth of one half or one side
of the body or of a part.
The left side of the head and
face is normally slightly larger
than the right side. Slight varia-
tions are also found in the chest,
arms and legs, and in internal
organs supposed to be in sym-
metry. Excessive growth of one
part or one side is exceedingly
rare. When bodily variation is
pronounced enough to be easily
or readily detected, it is known
as true hemihypertrophy.
Girls are more likely to have
body variation than boys. It is
most often noticeable in the legs
There have been many sug-
gestions as to the cause of such
variation. Everything from dis-
order in the endocrine glands to
some mechanical disturbance
prior to birth has been men-
tioned as a cause. Most authori-
ties agree that abnormal
influence during the period be-
fore birth can cause this im-
perfect division. Proper prenatal
care, then. is indicated as a pos-
sible preventive of excessive or
true hemihypertrophy. However,
some variation is perfectly nor-
mal and is nothing to be con-

SEVEN AT A LOSS
A recent survey showed that a drug store prescrip-
tion department loses money every hour in which
it does not do at least $15 in business. That's how
much is needed simply to break even on the cost of
operation. The survey also showed that many drug
stores are open many hours--especially evenings
and week ends-when prescription business aver-
ages much less than $15 an hour. Nevertheless,
these stores stay open even though they are losing
money-to make sure you can get the prescription
you need-when you need it. That's why we say-
