',Underwater Fantasy", a combination of brightly colored fish, moss, treasures, octopi, and caves, was the scene of Paxton's 1970 Junior-Senior Prom, May 15. Mrs. Margaret Powell, class sponsor, and the junior class were in charge. The "Zephers", awellknown college band, provided the en- tertainment. During the evening several musical dedications were made, including the senior theme song, 'qf You Want It, Here It Is, Come and Get It", and a special dance for the Jun- ior and Senior class officers, and Mr. and Miss Prom. Several honored guests attended the affair. Among them were: Mr. John E.

Mrs. Betty Adams, PTApre- sident, welcomed the members and guests. Speical guestswere Reverend and Mrs. Joe Bates and Mr. Willie Collingsworth, a member of the Walton County School Board. The program was then turned over to Mrs. Fred White and her music classes. To begin the program, Sandra Smith gave an inspiring devotional• This was followed by a musical pro- gram presented by the fifth, sixth, and seventh grades. After the program, Mrs. Adams introduced Reverend Bates, pastor of the First Met= hodist Church of Florala. He gave an impressive speech about the Parents Teachers As- sociation. Mr. James King, school prin- cipal, then presented Mrs. Bet- ty Adams with a small gift showing the PTA's appreciation for her outstanding job as this year's PTA president.

Mrs. Adams then presented Mr. and Mrs. John Thomas with the perfect attendance award. They have attended every PTA meeting for the last twelve years. Committee reports were made by the chairmen, and the meeting was adjourned. CORRECTION A personal appeartng in last week's edition concerning Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Caraway, the item read "Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Caraway", Instead of the initials E. A. Also, the Veterans Club Care was only leased and not sold as was reported. CORRECTION Due to a misunderstanding of information received on the Ma- loy Memorial Sing, there was an error in the report of the memorial lesson following the lunch hour. Those leading memorial lessons during the afternoon were B. C. Maloy, John Etheridge and Tally Cock- croft and were dedicated to the late W. M. Short, John NeLson, Wiley Jackson, Charlie Bulgar, Dave Bulger, Bill Buiger, the Johnson and Maloy families. PERSONAL Friends of Miss Callie John- ston will be interested to know that she is recuperating at Flor- ala Memorial Hospital following emergency surgery Monday night. Mr. and Mrs. Max Richburg of Tuscaloosa are spending sev- eral days with their parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Ganey, and Mrs. Vivlan Rlchburg. RAMBLIN' CONTINUED FROM FRONT would not be "dirty" as the Andalusia paper indicates. She is a beautiful young lady, well liked and considered as among the finest. She is from a pro- minent family, also well liked and respected. George Wallace would not be making a mistake in marrying this beautiful young lady, in my opinion. In fact I think it would have been to his advan- tage to have marriedherbefore the election instead of "after" the election. What floored me was that the "Star-News considers George marrying this young lady as "dirty politics'* started by Al- bert Brewer. The neighboring newspaper said "The memory of the late I-~rleen B. Wallace is cherished in every corner of Alabama. Any talk of a second marriage for George Wallace did not originate among Wallace backers." I think I'm correct when I say it did not originate among politicians. That is a private matter between George Wallace and this young lady who I think, would be an asset to George Wallace and his future. He would have done well to have married her earlier if she would have agreed. George Wallace is much older than this young lady, in fact saw her grow up after he was in the Alabama legislature. THIS TIME next week we will know who will be making the trip to Buck's Pocket. It is my opinion that Albert Brewer will be elected. Some reports are that it will be by a margin of 45 to 50 thousand votes but I can't see it that way. I think it will be close but not as close as the results of the first primary.

A DISTANT COUSIN to George Wallace says he c~n't support him any more after staying with him every time until now even though he did not like him using his ill wife to keep control of the governor's office. That one thing has hurt George Wallace in the eyes of the people who do not appre- ciate his running his sick wife for governor, in 1966. Harry WallaCe, a steelworker for 53 years, (called Cousin Harry by George Wallace) said they disapproved of George running his wife because the law barred him from succeeding himself. He said: "My friends know I've been for George Wal- lace in the past, that I still think he is a good man, but that I don't think we ought to elect him governor again." He also said: "If George don't stop howling about the black bloc vote, he's going to wind up behind the eight ball. The Negroes resent it. And a good many white people resent it, tOO." And he said: '~.Jeorge made a mistake talking about Brewer riding into the Governor's of- rice on Mrs. I.~rleen Wallace's skirttai1." And he said "I wish this year that George hadn't brought that little girl, Lee Wal- lace, on the platform with him, all dressed up in a red jacket and a white skirt like Lurleen used to wear, and introduced Lee as 'the next first lady of Alabama.' I just wish he hadn't done it." He said that he and his late wife were sorry to see I_arleen make the race for Governor but he did defend George by saying that he did not believe he knew she was as ill as she was. IF YOU WANT Gerald Wallace for Governor another four years then vote for his brother George Wallace, but when you go to Montgomery to see the governor you know who you will see - Gerald Wallace. George Wallace has actuaUy never been governor except in name only. And Gerald did not intend to fulfill any promises made by George. ETOWAH COUNTY's Judge of Probate, Wiley Hickman, is not supporting George Wallace this time for the same reason many of us are not supporting him. He said: "On the basis of experience with Brewer and Wallace administrations I'd say that with Brewer we can expect harmony and progress, with Wallace we can expect more turmoil and agitation." He also said that "on the local level", as far as hls community is con- cerned, 'fit's the dlfferencebe- tween promises and perform- ance. When he was running for governor and was elected eight years ago, Wallacepromlsedus a third bridge across the river here. He made this promise explicitly to get some important committments of support. Four years ago when he was running his wife's campaign for gover- nor, Wallace repeated his pro- mise to get us that third bridge. He never got it for us. Gover- nor Brewer is doing what q I I in e THE FLORALA NEWS, established 1900 and published weekly on Thursdays, Lucile K. Woodham McRae. Publisher and editor. Entered st the post office at Florala, Alabama 36442 as second class matter. Wallace failed to do, and the work is going ahead on the bridge." The same thing has happened in Ftorala. Promises made but never "kept. Take for instance the road between Kinston and Floral a. Wallace promised it in 1958, in 1962 and in 1966 but never got around to it. Now that road is being paved and three miles of it has already been blacktopped. This road will be paved to the Coffee County line. ALBERT BREWER, got a special grant-in-aid for the construction of the base and paving of the road, and the work is being done. Before the first primary an advertisement in the county gave credit to Wallace for the road and he does have the credit of making a promise which was not fulfilled and I have an idea that road would never have been paved if it had not been done while Albert Brewer is in office. That is just one of the promises that Wallace failed to fulfill for six and one- half years. And failing tofulfillpromises he made is now hurting George Wallace. He had the privilege of being one of Alabama's best governors but he actuallyende4 up being one of the worst. THU R.-FRI.-SAT.
