Centennial Field; Bainbridge
Next Friday Night
Coach E. M. Bailey's steamroller
Saints lost 19-6 to the light, speedy
Chipley eleven under the lights on
Centennial Field last Friday night
in the first home game of the foot-
ball season for Port St. Joe. It is
believed that one of the largest
crowds ever to turn out for a grid
tilt here was on hand to see the
local lad's go down to defeat.
The Saints took a 6-0 lead in the
second quarter when Gene Farris
snagged a pass on the St. Joe 40-
yar'd line and ran 60 yards for a
touchdown, showing exceptional
Chipley took a 7-6 lead at the
start of the second half, running
the ball back 55 yards on receiving
from St. Joe, making a touchdown
on the first play, and converting
for extra point.
Coach E. J. Moore's Chipleyites
chalked- up two more counters in
this third quarter, one by an ofr-
tackle run for 35 yards and; the
second' ahter working the ball down
the field from an intercepted St.
The Saints worked the ball to
the 10-yard line in the last few minti-
utes of play and had a good chance
to- score, but lost the ball 'to the
visitors on 'h intercepted .pass.

Attacks Redistricting Bill
In Florida Supreme Court
The state senatorial reapportion-
ment bill which a special session
of the 1945 legislature enacted af-
ter a 53-day struggle between
North and South Florida has been
attacked' in the state, supreme court
by Senator J. Graham Black of Jas-
per, who lost his senate seat when
the 30th district was moved out or
Hamilton county 300 miles south
to Broward county. The act put
Hamilton county into the 17th dis-
trict with Suwannee and Lafayette
counties. It had occupied, the, 30th
district by itself before.
In his suit, Black contends the
reapportionment act was unconsti-
tutional, alleging that the appor-
tionment act "constitutes a bold
departure from the constitutional
legislature for all state expendt-1
tures. a'nd would' acquaint the
legislature with all of those expen-
ditures over which the legislature
has no control at present.
, "Governor Caldwell is opposed
to this amendmentt" said Tapper,
"stating in effect that it would set
the state back, or hamstring the
state government. However, the
legislature feels that the passage
of this bill would make it possible
for each taxpayer, through his
representative, to have a voice il

lawmakers have said that such a
measure would tend, to retard the
growing tendency of the executive

State Road Department
Completes Picnic Ground
Probably 'most everyone in Port
St. Joe has been wondering what
that construction work at Mexico
Beach (just beyond Beacon Hill)
was going to be. We personally
were of the opinion that it was
part of the beach development.
Now that the work is practically
complete (only thing yet to be done
is to run in the electric line to pro-
vide juice for the automatic water
plant) we have been informed that
it is a free picnic ground built by
the state road department for use
of residents of this area.
The project consists of concrete
tables and benches shaded by neat
alumninum-covered canopies, barbe-
cue grills, showers and toilets. In
Addition there is a concrete walk-
way down to the beach. At present
water is provided iby a hand pump.

Issuing of Numbers

'City Clerk Mark Tomlinson re-
ports that the job of mailing out
some 1200 letters notifying prop-
erty owners of their street num-
bers has been completed.
There is a possibility that some
may have failed to receive a num-
ber, and if such is the case, they
are requested to call at the city
This 'is a project of the Junior
Chamber of Commerce, and as it
fills a long-felt need in the city,
everyone is urged to co-operate by
putting up the number assigned, to

has a few choice numbers, and
Alex Young phoned us yesterday
that he had received a supply at
his Goodyear store. At last ac-
counts, these were the only two
establishments handling the num-
bers, though Barrier's and McCoy'a

have them shortly.

Our Country ",- -- Right or Wrong
STUDY YOUR AMENDMENTS
The editor of The Star is not trying to tell
his readers how to vote on the amendments to
the state constitution which the voters will
pass upon on November 5, but we do suggest
that ever) otherr read over and study those
six amendments for, while but two of them
affect the state as a whole, eventually those,
other four, which deal with situations in spe--
cific, counties, may at some future time be
brought up in Gulf county.
Possibly some of our readers don't even
know what a constitutional amendment is,
and we can't blame 'em much when we con-
sider the legal,language with which they are
adorned by the laweyrs who draw them up.
However, we won't go into that now, for we
are interested mainly in resolutions five and
six on your ballot.
These two resolutions will set up a system
of strict budget control and require that the
legislature act on all appropriations, doing
away with continuing appropriations over
which the legislative body has had no control.
Number 4 cn..tl, ballot' wquld sht'u adr-
tor of the budget, who would'ile' responsible
only to the legislature; all state funds would
be under strict budget control. Number 5 on
the ballot would require that laws making the
appropriations for-salaries of public officials
and employes and all other expenses of the
state to be budgeted and passed on every two
years by the legislature and would do away
with all continuing appropriations.
Under the present system' only about 25 per
cent of the state's expenditures are budgeted
and passed on by the legislature. So many con-
tinuing appropriations have. been provided
over the years that it has reached a point
where the lawmakers we send to Tallahassee
have little control over the situation, and the
numerous boards, bureaus and commissions
that have been set up collect and spend as
Our advice to our readers is to study these
proposed constitutional amendments. Be sure
that you clearly understand them, and then
vote as your own good judgment dictates. But
be sure to vote!
HOW TO KILL YOUR PASTOR
The following article, "Thirteen Tried and
True Ways To Kill Your Pastor," is taken
from the Chicago Sun. It should give food for
thought to church members of Port St. Joe:
Stay awvay from church, especially when
you know only a handful will be present. Stay
away from the Wednesday evening prayer
services because there never is a large group
When the sermon is over, leave the church
in a hurry without speaking a word of encour-
agement to the pastor. When you get sick.
don't let him know about it, and then criticize
hinm for not coming to see you.
Never invite hihi or his family out to din-
nor in your home. They never enjoy a social.
hour. Pay just as. little as you can to the
church. and then always. grumble about the
church wanting money.
Never give up your allegiance to your for-
mer pastor. Constantly quote him in all things
and keep him in contact with everything that
is going on and ask his decision in the matters
of the church. Never give your pastor any-
thing except what you promised. This might
make him think you appreciate him.
Always have some fool excuse when he
wants you to do something 'for the church.
That is what you pay him for. Never call at
the pastor's'home, but raise "Billy Cain" if he
does not visit you once or twice a week.
Don't ever ,offer to help iin any way, for he
might think you are "butting in." Act as cdld
and indifferent toward him as you can and he
will think you are dignified. Never bestow any
kindness upon him or his wife on their birth-
days, wedding anniversary, pastoral anniver-
sary, Christmas, etc. Just forget them en-
tirely, for they night think you love them.
These little remembrances would be too kind.
If these thirteen rules fail to kill him, they
will undoubtedly break him from preaching
and whip his spirit until he is forced to give
tiu. Are YOU killing your pastor?
