The first game of the night star the Florala Jet and Tiger All-Stars buckle under in de- feat to the tune of 30-6, Crest- views favor. The Crestview team showed a fine display of Myerson defense, led by Ken Williams, Greg Peterson and Be Hattaway, to name a few, stunned the of- fensive game of the opponent. The running of Andy Town- send and Ricky Mitchell, in the second half, proved to be too much for the opposing team. TD's were made by Andy Town- send running forone and picking up a Crestview fumble for ano- ther, with Shane Davis running for the final score.

They're both "priceless," but for different reasons said, Dr. Juanita McDonald, Covington County Christmas Seal Chair- man. Postal officials explained that the two Christmas Stamps [] issued by the U. S. Postal Sys- tem had to be printed by the • Bureau of Engraving and Print- • ing far in advance. Because • of this uncertainty as to who- [] ther postage rates would rise, by how much, and when, it was • decided to omit a price desig- [] nation on the special Yule • stamps. This is the first time • this has happened. It has since been announced [] that the 10 cents first class [] wlH prevail until after Christ- [] mas, changing them to 13 cents. [] "Christmas Seals don't have an indicated price, either, but [] ~ey never have" said the ohair- [] man. "Christmas Seals are a [] reminder of the annual cam- palgn to fight against lung dis- [] ease conducted by the Rla- [] hama Lung Association. Tile [] Seals are mailed to thousands [] of homes in the county. Res- pense is voluntary and it is [] hoped that, recipients of the [] Seals will contribute generously • to our effort to prevent and. • control empi~ysema, tuberculo- ' sis, chr0~c bronchitis, and [] asthma, as well as to reduce • the threat of smoking and air [] pollution. • "Christmas Seals and Christmas postage stamps [] make a cheerful combination on • your letters, cards and pack- • ages, the chairman added. • "While the number of stamps is determined by the weight of • your mall,.the amount of your [] Christmas Seal contribution is [] governed by the goodness of [] your heart. So use plenty of Christmas Seals and help the [] fight for healthy lungs." [] Serving with the chairman [] are: Dr. J. W. Johnson; Miss MM LuclUe Manclll; Dr. Sara Jo Panicle; Mr. Hubert Sullivan; Mr. Zlha Anderson; and Mrs. Sara Gooisby. Present: Mayor, Joe R.chinson.
