Sometimes I wonder whether our readers would notice if we ran the front page blank except for a certain unsyndicated column which regularly appears on the left side of the page. Everyone who has anything important to tell the public wants it mentioned iin that particular column. A few of the subjects I have been requested to mention are:
Don't forget to pay for your Christmas Seals.
Contribute to Christmas, Inc.
Notify the Cub Scouts if you have old toys you wish to give to needy children.
Join the National Guard.
Dan's the man Monday night, go to the show.
Attend the Health Council meeting Wednesday, the Garden Club Friday night, and the Woman's Club Tuesday.
Watch for pedestrians.
Read your local newspaper carefully.
Do your Christmas shopping early.
With regard to that last bit of friendly advice, those ominous little boxes that dispaly the threat "Only 21 more shopping days 'til you know what" give me the creeps. I always keep my eyes averted from them when I read the paper. Thus I go on blissfully unaware of impending doom until a week before Christmas, when I get a glimpse of a calendar and am galvanized into action.
Santa Claus is making several pre Christmas appearances in this locality soon. What I'd like to do is give him my gift list and tell hiim to add it to HIS list. With as many gifts as he selects and delivers every year, what difference would a few more names make to him?
Here is the schedule of Santa's visits: On Dec. 3, the old boy will be in Cairo, Ga., at 2:15 p. m., and will somehow manage to get to Quincy at 3:00. Santa's local appearance will be on Dec. 17 at 3 o'clock. He will visit Chattahoochee on the same date.
My annual Christmas poem has been unpacked along with last year's tree decorations, withered holly, etc. Don't say I didn't warn you.
Christmas comes but once a year, And all to soon it will be here. July will have her fireworks popping, Before I"M through with Christmas shopping. THE OFFICE CAT.

Editor in Chief................................Don Butler
After years of prosperity, Americans, as people everywhere, are prone to forget the meaning of Thanksgiving or to review the origin of this occasion. Too many times we take for granted the fact that we live in the best part of the best country in the world. On Thanksgiving Day, our minds are centered on a big turkey dinner or a meal at some relative's house. Certainly, we should not forget the significance of Thanksgiving nor how the first Thanksgiving came about.
This day of long ago was set aside by our forefathers as a day of thankfulness for how abundantly God had blessed a new people in a new world by enabling the people to make good crops, find shelter, and secure clothes. These early settlers endured hardships of weather and many other difficulties in order to survive the first year in the new land, America.
The old Indian was a help to the first Pilgrims in planting food and building houses. Some Indians were hostile but many others have gone down in history as great helpers to the white man.
Though another Thanksgiving has already passed, let us not forget what it means or how the first one originated. Above all, let us continue to lift thankful hearts to God every day, the whole year through for our many blessings.
Mary Scott arrived at her first ball game during the fifth inning. "The score is nothing to nothing," she heard someone say.
"Oh good," she cooed to Jack L. "Then we haven't missed a thing."
Mother: "Winston, it is time you were up. The birds were all up long ago."
Winston S. (Sapp): "Well, if I had to sleep in a nest of sticks and straws I'd get up early, too!"
"She told me," Mrs. Daniels complained to Mrs. Truluck, "that you told her the secret I told you not to tell her."
"Well," replied Mrs. Truluck, "I told her not to tell you I told her."
"Oh dear," sighed Mrs. Daniels, "Well, don't tell her I told you that she told me."
Alex (McMillan) said, "To cease smoking is the easiest thing I ever did. I ought to know because I've done it a thousand times."
Now that the band has given its fall concert, Mr. Blake has issued several new pieces of music. He has called in most of the concert numbers to be used in the festival. The band has already received a new French horn with the help of the proceeds received from the concert.
An all state band clinic is to be held in Tampa this week-end, December 2nd and 3rd. Out of a group of several musicians recommended by Mr. Blake, those selected were Howard Gray, clarinet, Ray Gregory, baritone, and Kenneth Haskins, French horn.
Friday night after the concert, the band members enjoyed a dance in the band room. Refreshments of cookies, sandwiches, and coca-colas were served.
Miss Martha Swisher spent the Thanksgiving holidays in Pensacola, Florida.

Mrs. Franklin's First Grade
We are glad Mary Shelfer won a first prize on her poster for Book Week. We enjoy chapel programs every week.
Mrs. Miller 2nd Grade
We have two more new pupils, Bobby and Betty Williams who are twins. They make 39 enrolled in second grade. We enjoyed making poster for Book Week. Dianne Hall, Ed Carter, and Mary Edith Lester had their posters chosen from our room.

Mrs. Zeigler's 6th Grade
We have had our six weeks test. We have been studying about Rome. Some of the students wrote a play about Greece and are going to give it in chapel.
We have had six weeks tests. Three people entered the Book Week poster contest. They were Joyce May, Jane Gregory, and Potter Woodbery. We are making scrapbooks in Every Day Living. We are glad to have Glenn Loch back in school.
The 9th grade is still studying on algebra in General Math. In English, we're working on telephone conversations and introductions.
The Juniors regret very much Edith Atkinson's leaving us. Soon she will be studying how to patch Willard's (Vickers) pants and how to cook a beef roast or how to budget. We all wish her luck.
We are proud to announce that after so long a time of suspense, our rings have at last come. We are all very satisfied and proud of them.
In case you haven't heard, the Seniors finally got their rings. What a day!
Betty Lou and "Lib" had quite an excited night last Thursday night. Could it have been because Charles, Alex, and Guy came over? By the way, where did you get those tangerines? Sarah Helen certainly was worried Sunday afternoon, wonder why?
Betty Jo K., did you ever find out who the blond was that came to your house one Saturday night? Alice H., who were you seen with in the Leaf theatre Saturday night? Mary B., you must have cast a spell on Foster. He just can't stay away.
Barbara D., how did you enjoy the square dance Saturday night? Margarite, you wouldn't have Joyce to tell a story for you or would you? Did he believe you, Joyce?
Joy, just who were you with Saturday night, Lawrence or Montey Hutto? JUne M., seems to have a fancy fro Quincy, also. She was seen with Billy Y. Peacock Saturday night. It seems as though Bobby Hilton and Ramona S., were having a good time at the square dance Saturday night also. Jimmy Dolan, who were you with Saturday night? Grady M., we heard that you and Edna had quite a time in Whigham Saturday night.
Well, so long for now,
This week we are going way down to the eighth grade to get our character. And what a character!!
The walk that carried this person along is rather awkward; that is, his toes look as if they are in constant conversatin with each other. (You know, pigeon toed).
Gray eyes are hidden behind plastic rimmed glasses and sandy hair tops his head.
If you haven't heard of "cake sandwiches', just ask our victim. (In case you don't know what a cake sandwich is, it is cake between two slices of bread.)\
Well! Keep guessing until next week.
The answer to last week's Who's Who was Mr. Burns.
On December 3rd, the Havana Bears open their game season in Attapulgus, with Attapulgus. This game is likely to mean much to the team since it will show whether or not the Bears have the same fight in them that they had last year.
Up until today, the team has had seven days practice. This sounds like a short practice period in preparation for the opening game, but Coach Strange is counting on quality instead of quantity.
The first game of the season is usually the worst one, no matter with whom it is played. No one knows how the boys will play together for the first time in several months. However, judging from the way the team, as a whole, has been responding in practice, the outlook is not too dim.
The Bears, this year will miss several players who graduated this past year but, as always, there is someone else to fill the vacancy. These who are taking the places of the players who have graduated realize that they have a big job to do.
