In every area of the world it is of utmost importance that the one quart of water a man needs daily for drinking is absolutely safe.

Senior Citizens Sponsor July Birthday Party Although there were no Sen ior Citizens' birthdays in July, the month was not without its birthday party. Harvey Dean Williams, Jr., and Mark Erick son Williams, young grandsons of Mrs. Addie Williams, had asked permission to be hosts to the group.

Williams would cer tainly have thrilled to this oc casion. The long table was prettied with floral cloth and napkins with sandwich plates and bright colored cups all around. Down the center were artistically arranged assorted sandwiches, fritos, nuts and candies, with a marble pound cake in the center. Cups were filled and refilled plenteously with fruit punch. The boys did the serving (with a little help from "Grandmother"). They also entertained the group with two thoughtful readings. First Mark read very effectively "Things Undone;" then Dean read equally well "Our Bible." The Vicar of St. Titus' dropp ed in and shared a few minutes of the happy occasion.

W A Member of the GT&E Family of Companies It's Body Shaped New Tub For Peop/e From the hand made bathtub of the western frontier (1) where men took baths once a month whether they needed them or not, 'til today, tubs were made for one purpose, to hold a lot of water. True, the first manufactured tubs were larger, like the "boat-with feet" models of the 1800's (2). And later ones, like the side-wall types that came in during the '2o's (3), offered "modern" design, but they were still made primarily just to hold water. Now bathtub manufacturers such as Crane Co. are going well beyond the original concept and considering the people using them, their safety in use and how they harmonize with the decor of the rest of the room. The Empress (4), for instance, is the first "body-shaped" tub. It's tapered to al low extra hip and elbow room, and has a contoured backrest and bottom. Built in innovations include a sturdy grab bar, an integral, easy-jto-clean soap dish and a wide ledge for toilet articles. An optional slip-resistant bottom helps prevent in juries, while the tub's sculptured lines match modern design motifs. .i Slates Coast Guard is seriously looking for young Negroes to / enter and receive a commissior in the Coast Guard.
