Where does most of the rainfall in the United States come from? The water which falls upon the United States as rain ori- ginally comes from three large bodies of water--the Pacific Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. Of the three, the Gulf sup- plies us. by far, with the larg- est volume of water, it is esti- mated that 55 per cent of the rainfall in the country comes from the Gulf of Mexico. The Pacific Ocean provides some 30 per cent and the Atlantic Ocean IS per cent.

On the Tuesday after Christmas, BJ and Cal LaMotte entertained at one of the nicest parties ever. No one wanted to leave.

Several weeks ago marilyn and Jim Pinson returned from what sounds like a great trip, they drove to Florida and then boarded a liner for the Bahamas. When* they returned to Florida, they visited friends and relatives including the Newton's and did some fishing in Earl's backyard. They missed seeing Thelma that day because she was off and running somewhere else. Cynthia and Ce" Luty are home now after spending Christmas in Connecticut. Their families are there and they had a busy time visiting around and little Jessica celebrated her first Christmas by meeting all her relatives. 'm sure it made a happy Christmas for her grandparents. See you next week and meanwhile please help the birds and little animals. $*$* The careful person is one who knows what to expect.
