"Man, that's really cool," that
really looks sharp!" These are
some of the comments you hear
from students looking at the 1956
Merc, usually seen parked in the
Ashland High school parking lot.
Owner: Phil Crompton; Make:
1956 Mercury; Type two-door
hard-top. The Specs on this red
and white speedster are astoud
ing. The engine is filled with
a 312 inch Ford, with "inner
goodies" that really make this
machine haul. Phil just recently
installed the Ford engine and,
with a few more miles on it,
he would like to sell it. The out-

side of this machine is a bright
red lacquer, set off by a white
top. Pin-stripping was added to
the body and inside to emphasize
the lines of the hood, fenders,
and trunk. The interior is fully
rolled and pleated in red and
white naugahyde upholstry, with
white leather headliner.
The transmission consists of
Ford three-speed, with Ford floor
linkage, that connects to a Ford
rear-end. The engine cost Phil
close to 300 dollars, interior $450
total cost $750. Phil is askin
mere $675 cash for this perfect
example of expert craftsmanship

Safety Program

merican Trucking Association,
Inc. in forty-eight states to more
than three and a half million high
school students. The program
which was presented at Ashland
High on February 11 consisted of
brief talk by Lt. Pike relating
some of the accident causes he
has covered, followed by a uni
que magic show in which each feat
illustrated a point of safe driving
behavior. The program was spon-
ored by the safety commission.
"Safety Magic" has received
the enthusiastic endorsement of
many U. S. police officials, school
superintendents, principals, and
from thousands of students of all
ages. Educators have found the
"Safety Magic" not only teaches
safety, but has great value as
citizenship program.

Be it the "scratch" type or the
"puncture" style, the magic of im

dent has the opportunity of
choosing between the magic of
one big pox or the possibility of
many severe and serious poxs ac
companied with a long illness.
The Jackson County Health De
partment offered small pox vac
cination at Ashland High Thurs
day, February 7, 1963 with many
students taking advantage of this
opportunity. Proof of this fact was
seen as students were observed
carefully guarding aching arms
as they walked through the halls
of the school.
Students were comforted by the
news that this operation would
not have to be repeated for at
least five years . . .
