Their oldest daugh- ter, Elizabeth, will remain in Florala where she will be asso- ciated with The Florala News. After seven and one-bait years, it is hard to say goodbye to a family who has been so much a part of the community life as have the Bates. The Reverend Bates did not only minister to the Methodist fa- mily, he ministered to those in need - regardless of their church affiliation and many of them had none. He will be sorely missed by members of the Florala Police Department as he served as Juvenile Of- ricer when no one else would. They felt tree to call "old Joe" any time of the day or night and he would be there for as long as he was needed. Re- placing a man of that caliber will be hard to do. For a good- ly number of those years, he was associated with the Men- tal Health Center in Andalusia and for nearly three years, has served as Director of the Alcoholics Rehabilitation Cen- ter in Florala. He loved and cared for those'people like a father would have. They, too, will feel an emptiness with his leaving. Following his last sermon as pastor of the First United Methodist Church in Florala Sunday evening, it was not un- common to hear members as they said their goodbyes - - "You are the best pastor we have ever had." Those senti- ments came from members who have been members at First Methodist Church since the early 1900's. Mrs. Bates -- she was a de- voted wife and mother. What more could you say about a preacher's wife? She worked very closely with the women of the Ernestine Howell Circle and Circle #~ and taught in the Ju- nior Department of Sunday School. The children, Jeanie, Jeff and Jamie will be missed equal- ly as much. Their bright and smiling faces on Sunday morn- ing was a sight to behold. VANDALISM Cont.

The recommendation also calls for the Jail Committee of this Grand Jury to meet and discuss the jail situation with the Grand Jury scheduled.for Hello Friends Citizens Man can pretend .ignorance and or confusion concerning truth and justice on vital issues. Yet that contradicts the facts. He claims and likes the esteem and flowers at times of his convenience but disclaims or pretends ignorance whenever his boat gets rocked by truth and justice. No crystal hall? Then read between the lines of most of the news media and authorities, then most or much of the truth will surface in many cases. The more research and ,homework you do the more you see and that is the truth. How can we evangelize the ignorant and non-believers in other countries when our Churches and beliefs differ, and we argue on major christian programs and interpretations, keep a low profile on the advertising of tobacco, alcohol, gambling, bribery, blackmail, most anything goes, etc., and are well on the way toward being buddy - buddies with the non- believers or larger communist countries. How do you explain that to the inquisitive mind? Hope to continue these little articles. Time will tell whether they be fact or fiction. "Serving Our Membership" BUREAU SER VICES, INC.
