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.
s. cards enthu
? there are
k some sifniB
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
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.

game, there's a small, six-page leaf

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.

TOWN COUNCIL WRITES LETTER TO THE PUBLIC
CITIZENS & TAXPAYERS
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
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 \ \\.\
