Beach-Bent Teenagers Mom, Dad, have you ever wondered where your teenage son and/or daughter were when there were dishes to wash, a bedroom to clean, grass to mow? Wonder no more. The chances are from good to excellent he and/or she were out scrubbing someone else's car. It's a national, teenage pastime: washing cars. Oh, they don't do it for free! It's strictly a money-making proposition, but money isn't the real goal. The real goal is something they want to do that takes money -- like these Spanishburg High seniors. When Keith Walters and his camera came along, they all wanted to go to Myrtle Beach -- hence so much industry. So ?Wash on, friends. There're- worse things than clean cars and happy youths.

One origin can be from the Old Gothic word mers which became mari in Old High German, meaning "big, magnificent, grand, glorious, stately". A n o t h e r o r i g i n can be from the Old High German word m a r a h . m e a n i n g "horse". , The third origin can be from the Low German word, mari, meaning "sea". T h e n a m e s M a r a b e r t , Merbeth, Marnin, Merlus, Marel. Maro. Mars, Martz, Marz and Marsing can be from any one of the above. Researched by Eric Eppstein. ··2m ·June. 2. J.974 A
