Gross, who purchased the Windsor from Guide Benassini in August of last year, sold his Interests in the building and busineifs to Joe Avila and George Delfel, says a report from Fort Bragg. Avila needs no introduction to the people of Fort Bragg as he has , been a partner in the Windsor Cocktail Lounge since 1945. He hps purchased a home in Fort Bragg. Mr. Delfel is from San' Francisco, a stranger to that section. He has had considerable experience with hotel and motel business and with his partner plans improvements ior the Windsor. Mr. Gross will return to San Francisco as soon as tlie new owners take over. JdwttttmtMt — ihtW ^^^"^ ^^^^^ ^ sit ...iy Joe Marsh> Three Might/ Important Ideas WRITE PHONE Maybe you read, where a great encyclopedia has sorted all basic ideas into a few select groups. Under the letter "T" they have: Temperance - Truth - Tyranny. Sounds like a funny combination. And to philoHophize a little, notice that Truth is in the center— between Tyranny and Temperance. Now and then you hear folks criticize temperate people who enjoy a moderate glass of beer... who talk about "two beers" getting some one into trouble, and claim: "There ought to be a law!" Then Truth steps in between, and points out that two beers never got anybody into trouble—and tliat somebody's trying to distort the facts. No, there shouldn't be a law —there should be Truth. From where I sit, those ideas are arranged just right. Temper- ' nnce on one side. Tyranny on the other—and Truth in the middle^— seeing that Tyranny never encroaches upon Temperance. ' .
