(AP) Washington has its cocktail parties, New York its three- martini lunches, but in small- town America it is at the morning coffee session that the moving and shaking is done. Across the land, doctors, lawyers and merchant chiefs leave their offices at an appointed hour, gather at an appointed place, listen to the latest gossip and the latest jokes, rehash the latest athletic events and business We arc a Professional Company looking for a Professional Person to offer an excellent Insurance sales and service career opportunity. -• For more information erf 316-275-7328.

Yes, but take a look at who the socializers are. Regulars include members of the school board, the local Civil Service Commission, the president of the Community College, the editor of the Two Nominated For Judgeship TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Two nominations to become Graham County District Court judge have been sent to Gov. Robert F. Bennett for his decision. The two are Shelby S.

They are, indeed, a relaxed group, and the Snack Shack is a relaxed place for any group to gather, or any choir. It is a block off the court- house square, a linoleum and formica haven presided over by Irene Starkey, who calls everybody honey. She charges 30 cents for coffee, refills free, as many as you want, and always has a fresh batch ready at 10. 15-DAY BIBLE LANDS TOURS FEBRUARY 13-27. 1978 Visit Israel, Ephesus, Corinth, Athens, Patra, Rome Local Guides, Escorted * 1,369 from New York Deadline, December 19 RAINBOW TOURS Lin Shnrnwe, 1501 Taylor Garden Chy 276-8153 The fun starts Monday December 5th Doors Open 10:00 a.m.-Come in and SAVE ON THESE DOOR BUSTERS Usod CAPTAINS BED Antique paw finish complete with new uialuau and boxatta.
