Processors Dennis Machavelli You will recall the picture of Sen. .Martin we had in a couple of weeks ago noting the remarka- able resemblance between the senator and Fayette's Russell Swartz. Last Friday Russell received a letter from Sen. Martin in Washington which said, ttw Dear Russell: "I was highly honored by Don Kimball in the Fayette County Leader of January 23.

That leads me to write to you to let you know how proud I am to have my picture mistaken for yours ... I would like to have the opportunity to take you and Don to lunch in the Senate dining room . . ." ttw Russell told me I could have his meal and what Senator Martin doesn't know is that I'll be there in less than two weeks to collect! ttw One of the finest Christmas gifts of 1958 was that of Albert Martin III to his mother. II was a trip to Tallahassee, Florida given in the form of a bus ticket.
