Certain representatives of the tuna fish industry are here.
City, County and Slate officials have been in conference with
these men in an effort to determine their desires. I he con -
ferences being held are strictly business in nature and what
ever agreement is arrived at must and should he mutually

The proposed basing of the “OREGON” at Pascagoula has
already borne fruit. The presort visit of tuna officials is par

Social Events
By Maude Tanlunxon
I was asked yesterday it
Christmas had changed any since
I was a child. I thdiight hack a
long way. And I said no, except
that there Is perhaps mare to buy,
but that I expect tlint this year
some little girl looks longingly at
a doll in a shop window, just as
a small child of the long ago
looked and wished and had it
come true in the form of a beau
tiful blonde doll dressed in dotted
net and blue ribbons—that had
its wig torn off before the year
was out by an investigating pup
py that lugged it out of its bed
to play with.
That was a tragedy! I don’t hold
with those sentimentalists who
talk fondly of the carefree days
of their youth. They forget that
a child is more capable of feeling
joy or sorrow than a grown per
son, who should have at least ac
quired enough philosophy to tide
him over a rough spot.
But to go hack to Christmas.
The spirit hasn't changed ary ex
cept that there are more things
to ask Santa Claus for and a
some one cleverly remarked there
are more things in the window
and stores to wish for; and th.if
tastes have grown more extrava
gant’. That doll that met tragedy
probably cost $1.25, blonde hair,
ribbons and all. But nowadays a
child isn’t content with anything
less than a Toni doll, cost $10.
i That's where Christinas hns
I changed. There’s nothing left to a
child's imagination. Dolls have to
have real hair and toy engine
real smoke. After a while the
small fry, feminine, will want
robots for dolls, and the boys
marbles that shoot themselves.
Perhaps Christmas has changed,
hut it's still the happiest time of
the year. Easter of course is an
other story.
Tile festivities for tile week
wt re begun Sunday when the
OLPH Sodality gave a banquet
at OLV high honoring new can
