PAGE BY: Buddy Strickland The Florala Recreation Board would like to take this opportunity to express our ap- preciation for the excellent be- havior exhibited by our youth this past Saturday night at the Community Center. Most of you probably know by now that a dance was held there Satur- day night. An estimate of three hundred young boys and girls took part in making this first venture in mass entertainment a smash- lug success. We also appeal to all parents within the surrounding area to support us in this effort of furnishing a place fo r our child- ren to meet and havegoodclean fun and entertainment. In the future we hope to be able to publish dates and pla- es for other entertainment. The Community Center is by no means a place for youngs- ters only. We hope to be able to sponsor Bingo Parties, Square Dances for old and young alike Also Bridge Partiesand Bridge Competition, Checker and Chess Games and also Com- ,etition in these games too.

Mr. Bustin makes the claim that neither he nor any of his co-laborers, neither any of the evangelists who may come in from elsewhere to minister in the camps, have any strange or weird doctrines to proclaim, nor will the perversion and twisting of truth be tolerated. He emphatically states: "We stand solidly for the plan truth of God as taught in the King James Version of the Bible, be- lieveing only in salvation from sin through the sacrificial blood of our Lord Jesus Christ -- not by good works which we might perform, nor by the ar- ticle of death, nor by purgatory so-called, but through the me- rits of Christ's blood shed on Calvary.
