AS WE SEE IT THIS WEEK
Pascagoula-Moss Point Bank
The Board of Directors, the officers and employees cf our
Bank joined together this week to pav special tribute to MISS
RITA JOHNSON. Head of our Bookkeeping Department For
twenty-five years Miss Johnson has served the banking public
well. In her tenure, she has witnessed the phenomenal growth
of Pascagoula, Moss Point and Jackson County. Many bank
ing items which traversed her department told stories of the
people and progress of our community. Year in and year
out, day in and day out. Miss Johnson has been constant,
faithful' and ioya^ For her contribution to our bank’* suc
cessful operation, we are grateful and on behalf of many of
our customers and friends, we extend sincere and heartfelt
Special good new ; has come! The ‘‘OREGON," a Government
scientific fishing expedition bout will !>'■ stationed at Pasca
goula. Three fishery engineers, two secretaries and a local crew
will tend her operations. The U.S Fish and Wildlife Service
will supervise the operation of this boat in Gulf Coastal water .
We thank our Congressman, a number of local citizens and
our friends in the West Coast tuna business for the all-out
effort to get this boat stationed here. Her expeditions will
bring added significance to our fish production program It
is our prediction that scientific studies made aboard this boat
will reveal vast resources of fish wealth. Another step to
ward a more stable economy has been accomplished.

It was our privilege to hear a brilliant address by the Honor
able JAMES F. BYRNES, former Secretary of State. His talk
was so full of logic and common sense that we came awav
convinced that there is still a lot of good old American talk
left in this country. His remarks were in no way a tirade,
but, on the contrary, were replete with wisdom and prudence
and so becoming a man of his stature.
Visitors at coffee hour and in the Bank this week included
LT. DONALD C. SEILER, Elmendorf, Air Force Base, Alaska;
and MR AND MRS. H. T RUTLEDGE, Northwestern Na
tional Bank, Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Can some enlightened soul tell
me why the glamor girls in ad
vertisements have taken to sit
ting on the floor? I have often
noticed this of late when lookin'!
at ads in the swanky magazines.
Is it that the very modern chairs
usually pictured along with the
gals are too uncomfortable to sit
on. Could be. And then, too, post
ers advertising drinks depict kill
ing gentlemen out for a social
evening. The girls, when they are
not sitting on the floor, are sedate
enough. A poster, I pass each
time I stroll down the street is
entitled “One Enchanted Eve
ning.” In it the man has given
up entirely and is sprawled on
the ground. It's a beer ad. Can it
be that he has had too many
Last week I demoted the junior
high PTA when I sent it to hear
Dr. Estelle Magiern's lecture at
South school. The meeting really
took place in its own school au
ditorium. However, the headlines
gave proper publicity. But South
school, in turn, lost out when,
owing to Ihe fact that the “Chron
ic-Advertiser” hasn't even syn
thetic rubber sides, and its ad
vance notice of the harvest moon
festival had to be omitted. And,
j lest Central feel slighted, tile story
about its very fine program in
observance of "Education” week
was crowded out. That last story
should have reached the office
the morning after it happened—
Nov. !)—as it was an evening af
fair and could be reported before
Thursday morning. In justice to
the I’TA reporter, the delay was I
occasioned by a misunderstand-1
ing concerning deadlines.
Katherine Wright, and her moth-!
cr, Mrs. E. D. Wright arrived!
home Wednesday after a stay of
a few days in New Orleans where ,
the former as “Mi ;s Mississippi” .
demonstrated for a department
store there a new and very sheer I
make of hose. When I look at i
cdbwebby hose and undies I am
reminded of a remark I overheard
recently in one of our stores when
a realist picked up a pieef of lin
gerie. held it up to the light,
dropped it with a snort as she
said "Why wear ’em at ^all?
They’re so thin they don’t show."
Truth Will Out
Among the indictments of us
j as a people recently given by
I l£ric Warner Johnson, a Quaker
schoolmaster, are two that should
be taken to heart, “We naively
believe that we are superior to
all other nations and people. We
forget that most of the people of
the world are not white. Chris
tian, nor American." We lack
imagination to consider things j
from the other fellow’s point of
view.” This is a selfish trait ac
cording to Headmaster Johnson.
1 tjiink that all rudeness and self
ishness stems from this latter for
if we would mentally put our
selves in the "other fellow’s place”
we’d never do the things that we
Noise Is Naughty
It was Thanksgiving day and
five-ytar-old Johnny was seeing
his first football game. Perched
on his father’s knees ho happily
took note of nil that transpired,
paying particular attention to the
tackles which he was to practice
all the following week to the im
minent risk of life and limb of
his family. Suddenly there was a
tense moment. Then Johnny’s
father rose up with all the other
thousands, and let out a mighty
roar. Johnny, who with dangling
legs was tightly clasped to his
breast, squirmed around and
looked up at his futhcr with as
tonishment. "Daddy,” he rebuked,
"You’re being noisy,” which was
a masterpiece of misstatement,
"Don’t you know that’s naughty?”
