NATION BUNGLES FINAL ACT
All America, from labor to industrialist to
legislator,, has bungled the setting for tne
final act in a tragedy that could have had,
and should have had, a happier ending.
The curtain blanked out the climax-let's
hope for good-last summer. It brought much
cheering, celebrating and lots of short-lived
enthusiasm for the happy return of our war-
riors to their homes.
Then it seemed only a matter of days when
the nation began forgetting (and, we're very
sorry to say, Port St. Joe can be included in
that statement) started demanding, every-
thing on a peacetime and prosperity basis-
became intolerant of shortages mainly affect-
ing civilian consumption and needs-figured
that peace was here quicker than you can
say the word, and lost sight of the gigantic
job of reconverting industry, helping the
former to feed the world's hungry and fig-
ured that all "the boys" would be happy in
the sole delight of once again placing foot on
In short, the nation has been selling its
warriors short, and its men in high places
have bee farfrom exemplary in th'eirlefforjts
to set the wheels in motion so that this na-
tion could quickly become "home" with a
happy atmosphere in every sense of the word
for "the 'boys" and every other citizen. We
can say that Port St. Joe 'is redeeming itself
in this respect with the "on-the-job" veteran
training program worked out by County Serv-
ice Officer W. H. Linton in co-operation with
local concerns which is taking care of a lot of
returning service men and giving them an op-
portunity to learn trades and businesses.
But to get back tothe national picture, de-
mands have been constantly clashing witn
demands in labor-management disputes, which
we do not have to enumerate since all of us
know of them, with little evidence of patriotic

willingness to compromise,,let us say again,
for "the boys" on either side.
We are restless for lack of unity of action,
and honest patriotic action in a phase of Am-
erican life which is every bit as important as
our war effort because it means a new begin-
ning in the lives of those who had seen long
years of a greater restlessness. It is this rest-
lessness, long exposed to the ruthless tactics
of war, which may one day rise to meet the
careless, selfish dawdling and wrangling of
the men in high places and the forgetting pub-
lic unless they begin to show some honest and
whole-hearted appreciation of our victory and
those who won it.
BLACK MARKETING HITS YOUTH
Price control or no price control, America
appears to be faced with the prospect of the
black market racket hanging to the national
economy like a leech for years to come unless
it is attacked now with an attitude of "this
The racket is now reaching the proportions
of the greatest national "snake in the grass"
in American history and those who patronize
it, are playing with a poison that will strike
home with a later crippling effect on the pur-
chasing power of their dollar. /
New York has reported black market op-
erations which are taking pennies from chil-
dren's pockets while honest merchants in
many cities are feeling its effect to the ex-
tent of demanding more effective government
A New York newspaper reports that the
city's children are paying from 200 to 1000
per cent over the regular price of one cent
for bubble gum. This appears like a harmless
racket, at first glance, but it is not always
- easy to tell where such price boosts originate.
it is reported ,that some of the merchants
have been selling thle gum on a tie-in basis,
forcing the youngsters to buy a nickel's worth
of candy before they were permitted to buy
their favorite gum. We haven't heard of any
stores in Port St. Joe using these tactics, but
we do know of at least one young boy who
was buying up quantities of bubble gum at
one cent and reselling it at five cents when
stocks were depleted-a practice which looks
to us like an early lesson in black marketing.
The New York paper also reported that a
representative of one of the bubble gum con-
cerns said that he knew of the/racket, which
he called the "pink market." Such sales of
the gum, le said, have been reported through-
out 'the nation, and he cited instances where
it had been sold for as high as 50 cents.
One thing we can say for scarce commodi-
ties, there's no closed season on 'em and we
can hunt 'em without a license.

We don't remember exactly how
the subject came up, but George
Johnson and Ye Ed began remin-
escing the other day about when
it was the custom to go out when
they were kid's and pick up a hen
or two or me hbe a couple or three
watermelons. George related homw
his mother used to lock up her
choicest hens when she suspected
that he and his friends were con-
templating a chicken fry, and, we
told' George how our grandmother
said she didn't mind if we took a
young rooster or two, but she'd
scalp us if we touched her laying
hens. We could. probably
have had the chickens for the ask-
ing, but they tasted so much better
when we sneaked up in the dark
and' removed 'em from the roost.
And a guy really had to be. good
to snatch 'em off without raising a
fuss. Them wuz the days.

about three for a penny. The bal-

Scout Summer Camp
Will Open June 23
Port St. Joe Boy Scouts, are
looking forward with anticipation
to summer camp that opens June
23, according to Scoutmaster J. T.
Twelve new life rafts have been
added to the 14 boats in use last
year, and scoutmasters may take
their Scouts on overnight cruises
and hikes away from the camp
A well-rounded: program of ac-
tivities is being planned, including.
an archery range where Scouts can
learn to use the hbow and arrow.
Scouts learn the democratic way
of life through these camping ex-
periences, Mr. Simpson .points out,
and he hopes that every Scout in
Port St. Joe will have the oppor-
tunity to spend at' least one weeK
in this camp if he is to realize the
most from his scouting experience,

D. D.T.,"Used Early, Kills
Garden Pests from Ambush
Spraying and dusting the garden
in time to preyent damage, which
is the right way, will be much fB.
cilitated by the peculiar nature oi
D. D. T., the new insecticide, which
promises to be a boon to amateur;.
and to be plentiful this year.
D. D. T. is different in action
from the older contact insecticides
and stomach poisons. Insects had
to be hit by the contact pocisonr.
and it was not easy to hit leaf
hoppers, for example, which
swarmed up and flew away v.hen
you- approached the plants they,
were destroying. Stomach poison.?
only affected insects which ate
'plant tissues, and left the juice
But= D. D. T. gets both kinds, by
contact; only instead of hitting the
insect direct it lies waiting on the
1l5ant until the insects walk over it.

through the feet of the prowler. Tl-,-
"residue" may remain suffic enr tly
on the plant for days, or monthi,
depending on its strength in the
first place, and, its exposure to sun-
shine and rain, both of which short-
en the toxic period. But in any c a.--.
it remains effective far longer than
the older poisons, requiring fev.'er
A review of reports made by
state experiment stations show the
following garden insects which are
immune to the new killer: Red
spider; Mexican bean beetle, and
The insects.against which i: w\as
said to be more effective than older
materials included cabbage worn'i-.
European corn borer, pea and po
tato aphids, leaf hoppers cf ail
kinds, the codling moth, canker
worm, gypsy moths, Japanese.
beetles and the bark beetles which
transmit the Dutch elm disease.
There are so many different kinds
of aphids, that it will take a long
time to determine just which ones
succumb to D. D. T. and which do
not. Meanwhile the home gardener
can use rotenone, which kills them
all. It mixes well with D. D. T.
Fungicides also may be combined
with D. D. T. without lessening the
effectiveness of either.
D. D. T. is harmless to users, ac-
cording to these reports, except
when combined with oil, and then
reasonable precautions make it
safe. The 'lormi m-ost recommend-

base and Bennie Burke and Frank

The fourth found no scoring, but
in the fifth St. Joe added three

The tallies were made by Tommy

the Saints failed to score.
The ninth saw goose eggs, marK-
ed up for both teams, and the tilt
went into the tenth as darkness
began, to fall.
The Oystermen had a runner on
third' in this inning, but he failed
to come in.
'The Saints likewise had an op--
portunity to break the deadlock In
this frame. Burke, the first mail
up, was safe at first on a high fly,
that was muffed as three Apalachi-
cola players endeavored to field! it.
Harden hit through third, for a one-
bagger and' Burke went to second.
Hannon sacrificed to place Burke
in a position to score and Harden
on second ,base. Cox retired the.
side when he hit a high bunt down
the third base line which was
caught and Burke and Hardena
both tagged as they started for
home and third respectively..

Dust or spray your plants before
insects damage them.
ed for garden use is a dust, from
3 to 10 per cent in strength, or a
wettable dust which can be used
for spraying, when mixed with wa-
ter. Most of the garden tests were
made with dusts.
Of the older insecticides which
D. D. T. threatens to displace, the
chief one is arsenate of lead, which
is more poisonous than the new ma-
terial both to humans, and to bees.
Some experimenters think that
D. D. T. will replace all forms of
arsenic, especially, .on ppt toe..p.
