Other churches helping with the school are First Christian Church, PresbyterianChurch and Episcopal Church. Classes will be held each morning from 9 to II a.m. for ages one to 13. All children in the community are invited to attend. Social Security With the end of another school year many students are al- ready making plans for the summer. Some will find part- time Jobs; others will just enjoy some leisure time after many months of studies. This is a reminder to those full- time students over 18 who are receiving social security checks. Your checks can continue during the summer, but only if you intend to return to school inthe fall. The Social Security, Law allows payment for as many as four months of non- attendance, provided you were a full-time student for the month Just before and after your vacation period. However, you must notify your social security office ff you decide not to return to school. By doing this, you will avoid receiving any checks to whlch you are not entitled and prevent a fi- nancially embarrassing situation. Such over payments, if they occur, must be repaid either by a cash refund or by withholding some checks if and when you do return to school. So play it safe and keep the record straight. If, durlng the summer, you decide not to returnto school, notify your social security office right away. Thank You We wish to say thank you, very sincerely for your wonder- /ul expressions of friendship and love during the loss of our loved one. A special thanks to everyone who sent flowers, food, cards, prayers, visits and many other deeds of kind- ness. Your thoughtfulness made our grief much easier to bear. May God's richest blessings be yours. The family of Joe Trlplett CALL 874-3 641 WITH YOUR NEWS...

"I've gotan Aggie Joke I want to tell you," I told my friend. "Now wait Just a minute now," he said cautiously, "I AM an Aggle." "That's alrtght," I told him, "I'11 tell it real, real slow." LOCAL FISHERMAN Joe Bownds got his picture on the cover of a fishing brochure in Arkansas while he and wife Jane were vacationing in the neighboring state recently. Joe had a long, long string of fish he had caught, and a photographer got a full-color shot of Joe and his catch. We always knew Joe was a good fisherman, now the whole Arkansas fishing world knows it. SPEAKING OF VACATIONERS, Carl Allmond cantestify to the fact that you can stay too long in any vacation spot. And his pocket book can testify to it also, because he got fined for staying too long in Mexico. That's right, Carl stayed five days too long in Mexico and had to pay to get out. It seems that when he entered the country, he told authorities that he would be there for two months. The scenes and cultures of Mexico got to him, and he stayed an extra five days. When he went to leave, the Mexican authorities fined him a small token for staying too long. So you see, you can stay too long anywhere, even in Mexico. Ask Carl about some other interesting happenings on his Mexico vacation. Sounds llke he had quite a time. BILL SAURPOLIS, former Clarendon College student who ade a name for himself as state president of the Future o F,.armers of America, gave the main address at the CC Exes banquet Saturday night. (Press Photo) AS I WAS DRIVING past his house the other eventl, I saw Dr. George Smith looking around his front yard. I stopped to talk a minute, and Dr. George told me about his pet squirrel. George sald that he has had a squirrel in his yard for about two years. He and his wife have grown quite fond of the squirrel, and have spent a lot of time watching it play in the yard. George said that the squirrel has taken nearly all his pe- cans off his big pecan tree the past two years, but he said that didn't matter, since he doesn't eat pecans much any- way. But that little squirrel went a little too far the other night. George reports that it climbed atop his roof, got into his chimney, and crawled down into his living room. There, it started to eat a $175 pecan wood coffee table. George said that when he discovered the squirrel in the house, it had nearly ruined his table, The squirrel than proceeded to climb back up the chim- ney and make its getaway. So, if you see a fat squirrel running around your neigh.. borhood, don't let him in the house. He has an expensive appetite. ROBERTA PRICE said in the Saint Jo Tribune: "Heard this week that the reason mothers cry at weddings is that girls have a tendency to marry men llke their fathers." BOB MILLER said in the Hamilton Herald-News: "The newest bumper sticker I've seen in Hamilton carries the message, 'Avoid Hangovers.. Stay Drunk.' Incidentally, I think the car is still parked in front of the Hamilton County Jail."

It brings many, many people to our } I community, and it's darn nice to have for your own use, too. SPEAKING OF tourists, the tourist industry has hit here for the summer.
