BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS OF THE TOWN OF MURPHY, NORTH CAROLINA. By Charles E. Johnson 52-2tc Town Clerk and Treasurer <4 CA*fiPlT Qj CARE TO SAMBA? Mention the word "samba" and while several people will immediate ly think o( the popular South Amer ican dance, the thoughts of confirmed card players turn to one of the most exciting Canasta variations. reopie who play s. cards enthu ' siastically and often say Samba ris Canasta's "sophisticat ed, grown up cousin." Actually ? there are k some sifniB oant differ vuwc* uciwecn me iwg k?iucs vui these are easily mastered. The basic difference between the two fames is that in Samba, unlike Canasta, se quence melds (or "Sambas") are le gal and even earn a bonus of 1,500 points. A "sequence" is a meld of ex actly seven cards in the same suit in order, such as king to seven. These sequence melds are actually canastas so, of course, they may be counted as one of the two canastas needed before you can go out in Samba. ? ? j r There Is one minor point In Samba for the beginner to remember. In Samba no meld may have more than two wild cards while In Canasta a meld may contain up to three wild cards. Also, In Samba you regularly draw two cards from the .stock but discard only one. Another feature peculiar to Samba is that a player must always hold at least two matching cards to take the discard pile. In- Canasta. you'U remember, all that Is required to take the unfrozen discard pack Is a combination of one matching card and one wild card. But the biggest differences between the two games is that Samba uses three decks of cards against Canas ta's two. allows tor higher scoring, and Is generally a more exciting game due to its wider melding opportuni ties. Two players at Samba find that It does not tend to be so one-sided as two-hand Canasta and six players have discovered that the three packs gives everyone mora turns. If you have never played Srmba . and would like to learn this exciting game, there's a small, six-page leaf let which explains tt in detail and whlc'AJTiay be obtained free of charge by sending a stamped, self -addressed envelope to Playing Cards, 420 Lex ington Avenue.

SILAGE STAYS FRESH, SWEET HIGH IN FOOD VALUE with STA-FRESH Bisulfite "STA- FRESH" Sodium Bisulfite keeps silage green, sweet, and high in food value. Last year hundreds of farmers used bisul fite-treated silage with amazing success. "Best silage I ever made," said one. "We haven't found anyone who doesn't like it," said a county agent. "STA FRESH" is low-cost, easy-to-use. Cows prefer silage made with it. (See them helping themselves in photo at right.)

Andrews Road Murphy!_N1C TOWN COUNCIL WRITES LETTER TO THE PUBLIC CITIZENS & TAXPAYERS MURPHY NORTH CAROLINA We wish to advise all residents of the Town of Murphy that we have been assured by our Auditors and the Local Government Commission that a tax increase will NOT be necessary for the financing of the new water system proposed for Murphy. The water bond issue, which you will vote upon later this summer, in the amount of $190,000.00 can be repaid at the rate of $23,000.00 per year. This amount can and will be raised under the present tax structure and no increase in the tax rate will be nec essary. In the Bond Ordinance, printed elsewhere on this page of the papa*, you will note Section 4 provides that a tax sufficient to pay off the bond issue may be assessed and levied. This provision is necessary because without it the people who buy our bonds would have no way to rely upcn our credit and our ability to pay. The law requires that this Section 4 be included in the bond ordinance. However, we assure you that no fax increase is now or will in the future be necessary for the re-payment of these bonds. We have labored hard and long before making the decision to ask you to support a new water system. We have had technical surveys carried out by the State Board of Health regarding our water, and they advise us that the present water we are drinking and allowing our children to drink is sub-standard in purity; that until we have a complete new water purification plant there is danger of disease. It is our hope that you will help us with this improvement of our Town. The Bond election date will be set in the near future, and we ask each of you to vote for the new water system and the bond issue necessary to it. \> v \ \\.\ Sincerely yours LL MASON, MAYOR % ? ? i? ? < ; ? % ? / \ Cloe Moore W.
