These squads were formed to do general res- cue work and none of their mem- bers receive financial reward. Economic conditions and Fed- eral regulations and proposed Federal Government regula- tions caused the local funeral homes in all three Covington County Cities to abandon the ambulance business and all three squads filled the need by taking over this service in their cities and the surrounding areas. The Andalusia Squad now serves a wide area around Andalusia, including Red Level; the Opp Squad served the rural area around Opp in Covington County and in a small part of Geneva County and part ot Coffee County including Kin- ston. The Florala Squad, known as the TriCity Rescue Squad, serves Lockhart. a large rural area in Alabama, Paxton, Florida, and a large rural area in Florida. In any given year the three squads will provide ambulance service in more than 1.500 trips, in addition to furni- shing general services of res- cue squads such as searches for lost persons, assisting fire 1,500 trips. In addition to furnishing general services of rescue squads such as searches for drowned bodies, searches for lost persons, assisting fire departments in removing per- sons from burning buil~lings, working at the scene of any disaster, such as tornadoes and storms. These squads cover every vehicular wreck in their areas where there is personal injury, including aircraft crashes. The three squads own equip- ment and vehicles with a com- bined value in excess of $75,000. Each Squad has or is now ac- quiring at least three ambu- lances, each owns an equip- ment truck, boats, motors, emergency lighting plants and several hundred pieces of small equipment. Squad ambulances are equipped with oxygen, first aid equipment and rususciators and many other items of spe- cial equipment so that they exceed the minimum standards set by Federal and State agen- cies. Every squad member has had at least a Standard First Aid course and most of them have taken Advanced First Aid courses plus special courses relating to rescue work. Re- cently twelve men from the three squads took the First Aid Instructors C o u r s e of t h e Sue Jones. Ma- ;ide services were Methodist Ceme- maria.

Men who volunteer their ser- vices as rescue squad members come from all walks of life. Chalmers Bryant, the Mayor of Andalusia, is a charter mem- ber of the Andalusia Squad. Both Andalusia and Opp have State Troopers who are members of their squads. Members are businessmen, lawyers, farm- ers, mechanics, bankers, and city and county officials, but whatever their occupation they join to serve the public. Some- one is always on duty 24 hours per day for whatever the work to be done. Local doctors attri- bute the saving of several lives to the first aid and life saving techniques administered at the scene of accidents and enroute to professional help by local squadmen. Not only does Covington County squads serve Covington County and the immediate ad- jacent area, but men and equip- ment have been sent to the scene of drownings, tornadoes and other disasters as far as 175 miles from home to assist other Alabama Association of Rescue Squad units.

So Choco- late Peanut Butter Cupcakes are always likely to be a hit. They're easy to make tool When you use pea- nut butter for part of the shortening, you not only get good nutty flavor, but import- ant nutrition bonuses, too. Peanut butter provides lots of food energy as well as necess- ary "B" vitamins and protein. The food energy in peanut but- ter is mostly in the form of essential polyunsaturated fats and it does not contain choles- terol. Peanut Butter Chocolate Cupcakes 1y 2 cups unsifted flour 1 cup sugar ~,~ teaspoon salt ~4 teaspoon baking soda cup peanut butter 2 tablespoons margarine 2 {bounce) unsweetened chocolate squares, melted, 1 teaspoon vanilla I cup buttermilk or sour milk Prepare 18 (2~/~ x l'-inch) cupcake pans.

Political Chess Game Up In Montgomery The political chess game cranked up in Montgomery Wed- nesday with one side trying to block an extended run of the spe- cial session and another fight- ing a recess. Administration forces are pushing for a move by Gov. George C. Wallace to keep the present gathering under mo- mentum and take up a mass of new legislation. Opponents wanted to meet Wednesday and recess until February 23. An outpouring of new legis- lation filled baskets in the two houses last week when Wallace suddenly decided to keep the present special session in ac- tion rather than calling them back later. That move brought an angry outburst in the Senate, where lawmakers claim the only pur- pose of this session was to adopt ad valorem tax equilization measures. The legislature passed a pro- perty classification plan and statewide reappraisal bill after a bitter fight which included an unheard of Sunday meeting. The feeling that an effort will be made to reverse a Senate passed resolution. That would bring the legislators back Wed- nesday and take the one month recess. Wallace forces are expected to attack that both in the Sen- ate and the House. Since it is a joint resolution, the House must concur. If the House does not and the Senate sticks to its original resolution passed last week, the House could not meet for more than three days without the up- per chamber also being in ses- sion. Opponents of the extended session claim all the bills which were re-introduced last week had been defeatdd in earlier sessions of the legislature last year and would result in an ex- tended filibustering stalemate.
