Fall Before Saints
In Labor Day Tilt
iln Spite of Series of Losses To St.,
Joe, Manager Demands
In an exhibition game played
here Laibor Day the Apalachicola
.Oystermen for the umpteenth time
went down to defeat at the hands
of the Port St. Joe, Saints, chamn-
pions of the Gulf Coast League,
pas Lefty Thomason held them to!
eight hits and he and his team
mnates nicked Rutherford' for eight
hits to make the final score 4 2.
The visitors took the lead in the
second inning when they managed
to shove one run across the plate,
and the joy of the Apalachicla fans
who crowded the grandstand was
unconfined. But the Saints evened
things up in the third when Frank
Hannon streaked home from sec-
ond base on a two-base hit to
right field by Thomason
Neither team scored in the fourth
and fifth, but in the sixth Apalaohi-
cola marked up another counter.
Not to be outdone, and just to keep
things even, the Saints proceeded
to do likewise when Leonard Belin
came in from second on a two-base
hit to center field, by Dallas Weeks.
The seventh was uneventful, ana
in the eighth St. Joe cinched the
game by chalking up two runs.
Tommy Mitchell was walked, Be-
lin was safe on a sacrifice when
the third baseman fumbled., Weeks
slapped-a low one over second to
send Mitchell home but was caught
out at second, with Belin going to
third; Bert Cox hit a long one to
centerfield allowing Belin to come
home' after the catch, and W. J.
fHerring retired the side when he
s rnuck out.
Apalachicola failed, to score in
their half of the ninth, although.

Agriculture Coming To the Fore,
Says County Agen.t, With Inter-
est Shown In Reforestation
Substantial- progress is being
made *in Gulf county agriculture,
according to County Agent C. R.
Laird. One example of progress
cited by" Laird is the Increased pro-
duction of corn andl chufas for live-
stock feed, the larger acreages and
yields indicating a definite trend
forward more production of feed on
the farm for hogs and cattle. He
also reports that more farmers
than ever are having their hogs
immunized against cholera.
Other significant developments.
as reported by the county agent:
More and better home gardens are
being cultivated; many farmers are
ordering seed oats to plant for win-
ter grazing; at least 30 acres will
be planted to blue lupine, the top-
notch winter cover crop, this- fall,
as compared with no plantings last
year; 30 acres of white Dutch
clover will be planted in October-
wniore than twice the acreage planted
last-;year; three farmers recently
bought 100 pounds of Pensacola ba-
hia grass seed' for planting as
permanent pasture next spring-35
acres of permanent pasture that
were planted during the summer
are-now developing a good grass
Laird also reports that Increas-
ing-interest is being shown in re-
forestation throughout the county.
HERE WE GO AGAIN!
With the war ended, the publisher of The Star,
along with a lot of other newspaper publishers, believed
that the newsprint situation would improve rapidly-and
it did for a time. But now the situation is shaping up far
worse than it was during wai;time, and not only ,tlat, but
there has been a steady increase in the price.
During the past year we have put quite a
number of new subscribers on our mailing list, but now
we find ourselves in the position of having too many sub-
scribers. Consequently, beginning this month, those sub-
scribers who fail to renew their subscriptions within two
weeks after receiving their expiration notice : will be
dropped from the list and will be unable to renew until
the newsprint situation clears up.
We have studied the situation carefully, and be-
l* eve that if we can eliminate two hundred subscribers we
can continue to get out six and eight pages each week. It
hurts us to do this, but rather than cut down on"the size'
of our paper we prefer to lose some subscribers in order
that those remaining on the list may get their money's
worth in reading matter.
So, when you receive a notice that your subscrip-
tion is about to expire it will behoove you to send or bring
in the money for its renewal if you would continue to get
BR'ER STORK HAS HECTIC WEEK
Silas S. Stork, local deliveryman for Storks, Inc., "Purveyors of
Better Babhies," stopped in at The Star office yesterday in order to make
an appeal to the 'better nature of residents of this area. "It's getting
terrible," he said, "the way people are hAving babies, around here. They
have no consideration for us Storks at all. In order to abide by union
regulations, we've been- ruling three shifts to the Port St. Joe Mti-
nicipal hospital the past week, and, since it is off the regular delivery
route, we've been hard-pressed to arrive on schedule. What I am asking
'is that the people in this, section space their additions to the family
farther apart-let 'em get together and cuit it down to about four de-
liveries a week-we could 'handle that without a bit of troublee"
So saying, Silas gave us' the following list of arrivals at the mu-
nicipal hospital, tipped his ha-t with his, left leg, clacked his bill a
couple cof times and took off into the wide blue sky.

Our Country 8 Right or Wrong
Is U. S. Senator Claude Pepper a great lib-
eral, or is he "the most dangerous man in the
senate since Huey Long?"
In Washington there are men to argue both
ways, says Wesley Price in his profile, "Pink
Pepper," in the August 31 issue of The Sat-
urday Evening Post.
"When he first came to the senate, Pepper
followed the straight Roosevelt line. People
said he was a stooge, a mere loud mouth from
the South," Price reports. "Now he is taken
seriously. Senators who know the po-
litical facts of life in Florida are outraged
when Pepper lectures them on liberalism.
They detect a note of self-righteousness. His
technique is guaranteed to make enemies. It
explains in part why Pepper is unpopular in
tlh\esenate; why his influence there is small
for a man of his abilities."
Victims of Senator Pepper's oratorical su-
periority fear him; others are mistrustful be-
cause he is aloof, elaborately courteous and
watchful, according to the article.
Outside of Washington, the senator has
many supporters-union members, Roosevelt
Democrats, many liberals and "plain Joes who
like politics with a wallop." Price asserts.
"The Communist press whoops it up for Pep-
'Woe is me! And that's about the
way we feel after making a Labor
Day week-end trip to Tuscaloosa,
Ala., and back in our '38 Plymouth
and not daring to drive over 40 or
so for fear the old jaloppy might
fall to pieces on us, even as the
wonderful one-hoss shay that ran
for a year and a day.
Only excitement on the trip was
two bee stings suffered, by Ye Ed.
You know, in all our 46 years ot
life, we'dl only been stung once 'by
a bee, and that was when we were
about six years old and plucked
one of the varmints off a flower to
show to our grandmother (gullible
little cuss, weren't we?) Now, 40
years later, we. get two stings in
the course of a few hours. While
driving along above Ozark we ,put
our hand down on the seat and an
Italian honey, bee promptly stung
us in the finger probably haat
been lying in wait for us for some
time. Then, just south of Wewa-
hitchka, a bumblebee came storm-
ing in through the open window
and stabbed us In that part of our
anatomy which would stick out
farthest north if we were facing
s0uth .. and is the reason we are
standing up to write this.
But speaking of-Tuscaloosa, it is
a beautiful little city surrounding
the state college. It has extremely
wide streets in the business sec-
tion and the city commissioners,
apparently in a devilish mood at
the time, set the traffic lights to
change at 10-second Intervals. .
Pedestrians, waiting for lights to
change to red', must be all set like
splrintars and start their dash as
per because he has been taking Russia's side
in international disputes."
"Pepper's ultra-liberal policy is a blend of
political expediency and deep conviction," Mr.
Price writes. "He has been a laborer himself"
. He favors government relief for anyone
who is out of luck. He wants cradle-to-the-
grave security and would make Uncle Sam a
professional wet nurse, charged with the re-
sponsibility of looking after an unfortunate
critter he pleases to term "the Common Man."
"Without a. friend in the world-except
Senator Pepper, of course, and Secretary of
Commerce Henry A. Wallace the Common
Man is in a hell of a fix," writes Price. "He
has a toothache, a psychoneurotic twitch, a
pregnant wife and no money for the doctor.
His children suffer from vitamin deficiencies,
the eldest girl is a juvenile delinquent and the
youngest boy has a bad squint. The Common.
Man lives in a trailer, drinks contaminated
water, doesn't. understand birth control and
has been fired from a job at starvation wages
for speaking to a union organizer. The organ-
izer was beaten up and chased out of town.
The Common Man wrote. his congressman but
got no answer because he had been robbed of
his vote by the poll tax.
"That seems to be the Pepper view of the
Common Man. Consequently he fights to abol-
ish all poll taxes, to widen the base of social
security, and give unions more and more
power," states Price.
"Pepper won't admit that Communist par-
ties in the United States and other countries
are connected with Moscow," the article says.
" .-. In this position lie is far to the left of
left-of-center New Dealers. He has sailed
more and- more to larboard since Roosevelt
died. Liberals are still within hailing distance,
but middle-of-the-roaders can barely make
him out, hull down on the pink horizon. The
conservatives can't see him at all. They're
trying to locate him with radar."
With the opening of the Port St. Joe pub-
lic schools next Monday, the outlook is par-
ticularly bright for a most successful year,
since capable teachers have been secured and
their salaries substantially increased.
soon as the color changes, since!
motorists seem to take a-delight in '
near. misses, and as soon as the
green signal flashes, dive their
cars at those unfortunates who
have been a bit tardy in getting
started across -the street. At times
large groups are caught half way
across and huddle together for mu-
tual protection, looking like a bandt
of sheep caught in a snowstorm.
S. And, Just to add a sporting
touch as it were, police officers
crouch behind parked cars and
pounce gleefully on unsuspecting
pedestrians who haven't quite com-
pleted the marathon' at the color
change and hand them tickets fot
jaywalking. It is indeed real
exciting, not to mention the sport-
ing and' gambling angles, to be a
pedestrian in Tuscaloosa.
