STARDUST and

MOONSHINE


Now that the St. Joe Saints ball
team has cleaned up everything in
sight and have been unofficially
proclaimed the mythical amateur
champions of Northwest Florida,
we can come right out and claim
the credit for them being champs.
Remember 'way back at
the opening of the season? The
team really had no official name-
we called it just "St. Joe" and the
Panama City News-Herald referred
to the local aggregation as "The
St. Joe Sharks." Under these vari-
ous aliases the local boys lost three
tilts and won three, so we put our
massive brain to work to figure out
an appropriate handle for them.
Remembering the history of old St.
Joseph we published in The' Star a
couple of times, we recalled that
when the settlers that established
the old town left Apalachicola they
called themsleves the Saints. So,
s- aez we, we're gonna call our local
team the Saints. And we did.
. And lo, and behold, soon the
Panama City News-Herald dropped
Sharks and started using Saints,
the Apalachicola Times, the Gulf
-County Breeze and the Blountstown
Record. followed suit and ,so
the Saints were born. We
contend that had the team con-
tinued to play under the name o01
the St. Joe Sharks they would not
have gotten as far as they did-look
gt the Carrabelle Mullets, bearing

a fishy name and' losing 30 straight
games. On the other hand, when
we found the local lads with but
a .500 average, having won three
and lost three, we done away with
"Sharks," elevating them from tne
depths of the ocean to high heaven
by hanging "Saints" on them
andl did we get results? Well, you
can see for yourself twenty-.
two straight wins! But all
kidding aside, our 'boys have done
a grand, job, and while we've only
been in St. Joe nine years, we un-
derstand from some, of the old-
timers that the town has had some
really good teams in the past, but
none to compare with this 1946
version. ... Our hats are off to
"em-they showed what real team-
work and hard practice can do, and,
as far as we know, there, was nary
a squabble among members of the
team It was "one for all and
all for one." Might be a good
idea for theta high school to pick up
"Saints" for the basketball and
football squads.
In the write-up of the Margie
Kirkland-Owen Moore wedding on
page seven our correspondent re-
ferred to "Mr. Fred Maddox" giv-
ing the bride away. Undoubtedly
Fred could "give, away" 'most any-
bod'y in town, but if we had re-
ferred to him as "Mr." in the write-
up he would have been in here to-
day sardonically asking: "Smitty,
whoinell is this MR. Fred Maddox
you're referring to? Allmy life I've
be.n called 'Fred'-and a lot ef
other names I can't repeat, and it'll
be Fred until I die." And so
we blue-penciled the "Mr." .
Anyway, with the mug that Fred
has, he shouldn't be entitled, to be
called "Mr." . And Fred
has told us out of his own mouth
that he's the homeliest man in- the
whole United Snakes.
Dan Brooks, Jr., called us up
last week after we had put the pa-
per to bed and wanted to put in
the birth announcement of his son,
but we assured him it was already
in print, except the name. So he
told as i 'was ian'l-Three-Eye. We
collected our cigar Friday, and dis-
covered that he wasn't even buy-
ing 'em that several of his
friends were giving HIM cigars be-
cause he'd finally brought forth a
son-he, had two daughters.
Don't know who's the proudest
of that new son-Mr. and Mrs. Al-
ton Dendy, thel parents, or Mrs. E.
B. Dendy, the grandmother. Any-
way, Alton is carrying a box of
good cigars around in his car, so
if you. happen to bump into him,
ask him for a stogie-they won't
kill you, we've smoked one and are
still able to write this.
Notice that new Ford Mr. and
Mrs. Ferrell Allen are driving
about town? Don't know how they
rate it, but we did notice that the
paint job just matches Honey's
nail polish and lipstick. Bet
Ferrell didn't even have a say-so
in choosing the, color. Jest
can't git around these women!

Our Country Right or Wrong

POLIO PREVENTIVE?
In an article appearing in the last issue of
Dental Digest, Neurologist Hans Reese of the
University of Wisconsin and Dentist John G.
Frisch of Madison, Wis., advance a new and
interesting theory respecting the present near
epidemic spread of polio. The theory: An un-
filled dental cavity is an open door to polio.
It is significant to note that their warning
dovetails, neatly with the medical belief that
tonsilectomies and tooth extractions are dan-
gerous (during polio season. Reason: Many
polio infections enter the body through ex-
posed nerves in the nose or mouth, travel
along nerves to the spinal cord, where their
ravages begin. Says the article: "The rich
nerve supply of the dental pulp offers a most
formidable invasion point for the virus." Some
of their- evidence:
University of Maryland researchers drilled
holes in monkey's teeth, sealed polio virus in
the cavities, found that the animals became
infected.
In a 1944 epidemic in North Carolina, teeth
of 272 polio victims had 2.6 times as many
cavities as those of a comparable group of un-
infected persons.
Communities with much flourine in their
water have about 75 per cent less tooth decay
than those 'with little fluorine. Studies in
Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin show that high-
flouriine communities also have from 22 to 34
per cent fewer cases of the dreaded polio.
Logical surmise: Frequent visits to the den-
tist constitute at least a partial safeguard
against contracting this insiduous disease.

NEW PHILOSOPHY NEEDED
What this country needs is a new phil-
osophy of life, a philosophy that puts empha-
sis on personal contentments and discards the
materialistic attainment. Unless we do so, in
time all our accomplishments will prove folly,
our deeds einpty and vainglorious, our ambi-
tions futile, our standards but crumbling
foundations. The old order fails. We should
prepare ourselves for a new dawn. A new
philosophy might be-better than balancing the
budget or building fifty more super-battle-
ships.-Sanders City (Mont.) Ledger.

The pleasantest things in the world are
pleasant thoughts.


The Low Down
from
Willis Swamp
i i
Editor The Star:
I see where OPA is battlin,'-
sweatin' and dyin' to keep ladies
skirts short. Save cloth, that is
their slogan.
Ennybuddy bronze, white or
black--who up to now ain't had a
sneakin' idee -or notion, or any
kinda idee or notion that OPA
knowed whut it wuz talking' about,
kin now abandon same. The Paris
dressmakers sez skirts' is to be
longer. So they'll be longer. Them
there dressmakers don't say why.


WHO CONTROLS PRICE DECONTROL?
It should always be the practice that con-
trollers be controlled by the accurately-deter-
mined free. will of the majority of those who
are controlled. By the same logic, decontrollers
cannot fully accomlpliish their task and corn-
pletely remove controls until the people who,
in the first instance, make government control
necessary, in the last instance make it pos-
sible and advisable.
The price control board was given an un-
pleasant job to perform, and the confusing
statistics released by the OPA, the depart-
ment of. labor and other agencies did not make
easier the problem of control, recontrol and
decontrol. Nevertheless, the board appears to
be resisting partiality and the interests ot
groups, andto be performing a commendable
job.
The American people have a natural aver-
sion to controls. It may seem a long, long roadc
of winding from the voter and consumer to'
the decontrol board, but as soon as the pre-
domiinant majority of the people by their own
self-control make controls unnecessary, the
controls will be removed. An ideal is not a
great principle which in theory is highly de-
sirable but in practice almost impossible, but
it is a great principle which is not put into
practice.
Ordinarily nobody relishes the thought of
u4lemployment, but in this case the people
should hurry up and* put the members of the
decontrol board on the list of jobless ---Flbrida
Times-Union.

GETTING BACK TO NORMAL
The country must be returning to normal
when the bigwigs of college football again take
up the charges and countercharges of "you
hired my best backs away from'me."
Latest squabble is between West Point and
Mississippi State over Hlalfback Tom "Shorty"
AlcWilliams. Allyn McKeen of Mississippi
State charges ,that the academy authorities
won't allow McWilliams to resign because he's
a star player, and the \West Pointers reply
that Mississippi State. by a "financial offer,"
is trying- to lure him away from the academy.
All this brings up the question: Is football-
a game wherein schools compete for fun, or
is it just another form of "advertising" de-
signed to boost student enrollments? Surely
in these days of overcrowded colleges it no
longer pays to advertise.

MAolotov's attitude toward small nations in
"general is that of Groucho Marx toward whis-
pering tenors: "If you can hear them they're
too loud."

Several slightly overweight ladies here in
Port St. Joe are eating scads of vegetables in
an effort to grow slim. Seems to us that cows,
horses and elephants are vegetarians.

Each person on earth is dependent upon
people. Isn't it a great pity that they are so
unreliable ?

vation, florists of the land are really making
