Rotarian F. R. Francke of St
Petersburg, vice-president of the
Florida Power Corporation, was

During the war Francke was witi

pacity 'became acquainted with the
Philosophies of many of our allies
and enemy nations. He said' thai
Russia is, the country which causes
us greatest concern at present and
he believes there is a chance for
complete understanding with our
great war ally, but that right now
she is making an immense amount
of noise in hopes of scaring peace-
loving America into granting her
concession after concession. The
only path for America to take with
Russia, he said, is one of frank-
ness and firmness or we, will have

that our enemies are smart and

Grid Game 20- 6,
The Bainbridge, Ga., high school
football team defeated the Port St.
Joe high gridders by a 20 6 score
here last Friday night at Centen-
nial Field under the lights, holding
the local lads scoreless until the
last few minutes of play.
The visitors made their first
touchdown in the last part of the
first quarter, making the extra
point with a neatly executed, place
kick. Their second score came
about the middle of the second
quarter, with the try for point fail-
ling, making the score 13 0.
St. JToe took to the air at this
point and was marching the ball
down the field to a possible score
as the half ended.
Bainbridge elected to receive as
the last half opened, and on a
series of plays carried the ball to
the St. Joe 25-yard line where, af-
ter losing, 30 yards, on a fumble,
were forced to kick.
The Saints !brought the ball back
to the center of the field and afte-r
making a first down lost the ball
to Bainbridge on an, intercepted
pass. The Bainbridgeites had car-
ried the pigskin to the St. Joe 18-
yard line at the end of the quarter,
and' upon resuming play for the
final period, with an end run put
the ball on the two-yard line, fol-
lowing up with an off tackle play
for the third touchdown. The ex-
tra point'was made with a place
kick. Score: 20-0.
,Coach Bubber Nesbit of Bain-
bridige ran in six of his second-
string mien at this point. St. Joe
received the kick, lost the ball on
an intercepted pass,, recovered, a
Bainbridge fumble and then, after
making a first down, lost the ball
on downs on the visitors' 40-yard
After holding the visitors for
four downs the Saints, probably re-
alizing they couldn't buck the Bain-
bridge line for yardage, took to the
air and after clicking off 40 yards
lost the ball to Bainbridge on the
30-yard line, on an intercepted pass.
Bainbridge failed to gain on three
downs and kicked the ball out of
bounds on the St. Joe 45. The lo-
cals failed to make yardage via
the aerial route and lost the ball
to Bainbridge. On the first play by
the visitors, Gene Farri's inter-
'cepted a pass on his own 40-yard
line and ran 60 yards for the only
Saint score of the game. Attempt
at conversion failed.
With but a few minutes left to
play neither team threatene-d, and

your part to speed delivery.
He asks that these instructions
be followed: don't use a gummed
sticker for the address. It might
get damp and slip off the package
Print his full name, rank or grade,
serial number and APO number on
.the paper in which you have se-
curely wrapped the package. Print
your name and return address in
the upper left corner.
Here's a new one: List the con-
tents of the package, together with
your name and return address and
the full name, rank or grade, se-
rial number and A'PO number of
the addressee on a sheet of paper
and insert it inside the package
before wrapping. Reasons.: Pack-
ages may be broken open. If so,
postal authorities can check con-
tents, rewrap the package, re-atd-
dress it and continue it on its way.
Gifts should be packed in a
strong box with plenty of cushion-
