Before you receive another issue
of The Star, you will have ushered
in. a new year.
Almost invariably, we all think
ul some good "resolutions" to
make for the coming year. And
some people aroe strong-willed
enough to keep some of these reso-
lutions for a week or two. We have -
heard of people-on rare occasions .
-who kept their resolutions all
year long.n" :
At any rate, the advent of a new
year brings to mind that none of
us are perfect. We all need im-

is looking to -see if the 'budget can,

additional five billion dollars debt.
And we would like to believe that
during the coming year, Uncle Sam
would cease to imitate the big,
strong idiot, afraid, to-stand up for
its rights for fear of hurting some-

On The Upswing
Florida's economy is rounding

indication's for a ensibl> rate of

Chamber of Commerce stated this

"Measured by sales tax collec-
tions, business during the first six
months of this year was 3 per cent
below 1960. Since then, it has been
running 4 per cent above. Monthly
variations ranged from a drop of
18 per cent in January to a 5 per
cent gain in October. Bank debits
through October are one per cent
above last year, with recent months
"One of the best thermometers
of the state's economic health is
the level of non-farm employment.
This year started with a disap:-

welcomed and significant upturn.
Since that time each month has
shown': gains, 'though. small, over
1960 and the year is averaging a
nose ahead. Employment in 1960
started out 7 per cent above the
previous year but the slow-down

this year was a 6 per cent increase

Lowery Davis,'a veteran of 16

has been selected to serve the needs
of the veterans and their depend-

He added, however, that since all
records on Florida veterans are

Port St. Joe has again come through
v.ith flying colors. Griffin said that
.not even so much as a dented fen-

that so far as he knew, no other
injuries from accidents occurred as
a result of the holiday.
One near accident" occurred
Christmas Eve night when straw
on top of the home of Dr. and
Mrs. Wayne Hendrix, caught fire
from fireplace sparks. Mr. and
Mrs. George Anchors, neighbors
of the Hendrix, were going to
Midnight Mass and saw the fire

Rev. John Carmichael, pastor of
the First Methodist Church present-
ed the program to the Rotary Club
last Thursday. His program was,
"Christmas Around The World".
Carmichael's program consisted
of a filmstrip narrated by him on
Christmas customs in various coun-
tries. The observances ranged from
habtis of worship, to the decorat-
ing with sheaves of grain in Nor-
way-from the roasted goose din-
ner traditional in Denmark to the
traditional American feast of tur-
key and dressing.
One thing all countries had in
common in their observance, was
the practice of worshipping God on
Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

"SUPER-RIGHT" GRAIN FED HEAVY WESTERN BEEF CHUCK (Boneless Chuck Roast, lb. 73c)
A Service of Your Doctor of Medicine,
Your Local Medical Society and the
Florida Medical Association.
Children learn many things by
imitation and speaking is one of
them. If adults imitate a child's
baby talk, he may continue talk-
ing that way.
Parents should speak good
English, in a modulated and
articulate manner, and the child
will imitate this pattern as soon
as possible. Children should
never be nagged, coaxed or
shouted at in an effort to get
them to talk. Speech comes
naturally and the best way to
encourage correct speech in a
child is to listen to him with
interest and speak to him cor-
Some children don't speak
clearly because they are slow
in learning. Some are born with
hare lip and cleft palate and
some have cerebral palsy. Many
children have faulty speech due
to impaired hearing.
It is estimated there are more
than five million persons in this
country possessing some type
of speech handicap. Defects due
to disorder of the nervous sys-
tem are known as dysarthrias.
Dysphasia is an impairment of
speech in which there is failure
to arrange words in their proper
order. Dysphemia is stammering
or stuttering and usually due to
psychoneurosis. D y s p h o n i a
spastica is tightening of the
muscles of phonation which con-
trol the vocal sounds and later
in life may become an occupa-
tional hazard of public speakers.
Many speech problems can be
solved if treated at an early age.
If any signs of speech impair-
ment are suspected in your child,
a physician should be consulted

For a variation fIoIn the tr.td;tional, SeC'. a Holly Pie 1I3
year. This is a combination of two favorites mincemeat, almost
heavy with spices, and cranberries that are tart, juicy and bright
colored. The crust is cut out to form holly leaves hence the name.
The filling is thickened with quick-cooking tapioca, so the fruits
and berries are just the perfect consistency, with clear, slightly
runny juices. This dessert is delicious, too, with the. "pick-up"
meals of cold turkey or ham.
3 tablespoons Minute Tapioca
1 cup sugar
% teaspoon salt
2 cups fresh cranberries
% cup water
1-% cups moist mincemeat
Pastry for two-crust 19-inch pie
1 tablespoon butter
Combine tapioca, sugar, salt, cranberries, water, and mi-ce-
meat in saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture
comes to a boil. Cool, stirring occasionally.
Roll half the pastry % inch thick. Line a 9-inch pie pan and
trim pastry at edge of rim. To make top crust, roll remaining
pastry % inch thick. Cut out holly leaves or a fancy design near
center. Fill pie shell with fruit mixture. Dot with butter. Moisten
edge of bottom crust. To adjust top crust, fold pastry in half or
roll loosely on rolling pin; center on filling. Trim top crust, letting
it extend % inch over rim. To seal, press top and bottom crusts
together on rim. Then fold edge of top crust under bottom crust
and flute. Bake in hot oven (425F.) about 50 minutes, or until

May Be Due
S. S. Payments
Many individuals, farmers, share-
croppers, painters, plasterers, brick
layers, carpenters and the like, op-
erating small businesses may be
due Social Security payments, ac-
cording to John V. Carey, District
Manager of the Panama City Social
Security Office. Social Security
bet efits at age 62 are paid at the
full rate for widows, dependent wi-
dowers and dependent parents.
While retirement benefits to oth-
er beneficiaries, at age 62, are re-
duced, operators of small business-
es or people working part time will
be ahead financially by taking the
reduced benefit. If the Individual's
earnings do not go over $1200, he
will be ahead for 15 yaers by filing
for the benefit as soon as possible,
and, he will gain some benefits
even though his earnings are over
$1200. Many small business opera-

$2.20 PER EXTRA YEAR OF LIFE
The average family today spends about $222 a year
more for prescriptions than it did in 1929. Largely
because of the wonder drugs in those prescriptions,
you can expect 10 more years of life than you could
in 1929. This means that the typical family pays
about $2.20 for each extra year of life expectancy.
That's why we say .
