Eight of Twelve Runs
In Sunday's Game
Before a crowd that spread out
onto the fieldl in: folding chairs,' the
St. Joe Saints, led by Leonard Be-
lin with -Bour home runs, went on
a batting spree Sunday at the. local
ball park 'to nick Apalaohicola's
pitchers for 2a hits and 12 runs
while "Lefty" Thomason held the
invaders to nine soatteredbingles
and two runs.
The Oyster City boys, who had
been climbing right on up in the
league standings, ,had high hopes
of knocking the bark off the Saints
a la Tyndall Field, what with their
imported Mississippi State players,
but the foreign blood didn't phase
the St. Joe lads a particle, for

The visiting fans went wild as
Apalax'e.iscored one run in the first
inning on two singles and' a walk,
but their joy was short lived as
the Saints came to bat in the last
of the fourth to mark up four runs
and 'put the game on ice.
Bennie Burke, leadoif man, struck
out, much to the delight' of the
Oyster Citian's,. for wasn't their
Mississippi Stater, Rutherford, a
humdinging pitcher of the hum-
dingst sort? Frank Hannon took a
single over thirdM and the slaughter
was on. Tommy Mitchell got a two-
bagger to right field, Hannon go-
ing to third-and then, Belin lofted
the first pitche'.l ball over the f'nce
for his, i'icst homer and three
counters. Bucky Walters hit a line
through short, as did Jim McCall,
Walters being caught out at home
for the second out and' McCall go-

St. Joe Takes Wednesday's
Game With Four Scores
In 'Lucky Seventh'
Playing a return engagement at
Apalachicola Wednesday afternoon
Port St. Joe again came off vic-
torious, taking the Oyster Ci~ty lad,;
by a 4-1 score, with all their coun-
ters coming 'in the seventh inning.
Jimlmlie Adams did the hurling
for the Saints, giving -up seven
scattered hits. Hendels was, on the
mound for Apalachicola and. turned
in a bangup job, giving up six hits
and walking four. 'It is hard to un-
derstand why the managers of the
Apalachicola team import outside
pitchers at considerable expense
when they have this boy Hendels
right on their doorstep.
.Apalaohicola made the first run
in the third' inning, and up to the
seventh frame it looked life the
winning run. The first batter up
took two bases when Bennie Burke
handled the infield' hit anid threw
wild to first. The second man was
safe on a grounder to To-m Mitchell
and Bert Cox let in the. lone run
when he threw the ball away in an
attempt to catch the runner steal-
ing to second., allowing the man on
third to romp home.,
.. It was three, up,.and_ ~yree down
for Iboth teamis'up to the seventh.
Hannon led? off in that fateful inn-
ing, flying out to left field. Mitchell
,was walked and Belin, whom the
pitcher endeavored to deliberately
walk every time he came to bat,
managed to h9t a liner down the
third base line for a single. Bucky
Walters took two bags on a hard
one to left field, driving in Mitch,
with Belin stopping at third. Jim
McCall hit to the second baseman,
being safe at first on the unsuc-
ce'ssful play at lome for Belin and
going to second on the next pitch,

Thomason To Oppose Ace
Adams In Ball Game Today
The big game of the, season for
Blountstown fans will be played at
that city this afternoon when the
Donalsonville 'semi-pros will seek
revenge for an 8-7 defeat handed
them by the Blountstown Bucca-
neers on June 3.
Donal'sonville will call on "Ace"
Adams to do the pitching honors,
while the Buccaneers have secured
the services of "Lefty" Thomason
of the Port St. Joe Saints to hurl
against the strong Georgia nine.
Thomason has built an excellent
record as a mnound'sman with the
Saints, and with these outstanding
pitchers the game should, prove to
be an exciting one."

Four Homers In One
Game Believed Record
We are ,of the belief that Leon-
ard Beli'n's four home runs in
Sunday's game here with Ap-
alachicola sets a new record for
baseball in Northwest Florida,
and one that probably won't be
equalled or bettered for many a
Belin took his four circuit
clouts in five times at bat, and
on that fifth time was handed a
deliberate walk by the pitcher.
In addition to the four runs
credited him on the four-base
hits, he drove in four counters,
thus accounting for' eight of the
12 runs made Sunday by the St.
As one. Apalachicola fan said:
"All the team St. Joe needs is
Belin and Thomason." ,
Addition of these tanks ,brings
the total to 15 with a combined
storage capacity of 986,910 barrels,
placing the Port St. Joe terminal
up among the largest in the state.

Bennie Massey, 22, Killed By
Broward Todd At Ken-
Bennie Massey, 22, is dead and
Broward Todd, 40, the 'father of
eight children, is' being held in the
county jail at Wewahitchka on
a murder charge as the result of
an altercation Saturday night at
the Todd home, at Kenney's Mill
to which there apparently were no
witnesses. Both men were em-
ployed- at the lumber mill.
Massey's body was found lying
in the road, in front of the Todd
home, when Chief of Police Buck
Griffin wia.s called to the scene.
His head had almost been severed
from his body and he apparently
1had died within a few seconds af-
ter being slashed with a knife.
The two men had been seen to-
gether during the afternoon, and
according to witnesses both were
dirinkinig. -Sheriff B. E. Parker, who
iwas called in on the case, states
that Mrs. Todd told him that one
of her sons told her that he heard
Todd and Massey in a loud argu-
ment in the yard and that s-he left
her home. to go to a neighbor's
house. From that point on no one
knows: exactly what occurred.
The body was taken to the Com-
forter Puieri T Horife and. services
were held 'Wednesday afternoon at
5 o'clock at the graveside in Jehtu
cemetery, Wewahitchka, conducted
by Rev. W. B. Holland of the Ken-
ney Mill Baptist Church, with the.
Comforter Funeral Home directing.
Massey is survived by a twin
brother, George. also employed at
Kenney's Mill; his mother, Mrs.
Nellie M. Gray of Bithlo, Fla.; \six
half brothers. C. S'., J. B., Cortez,
Richard, Raym.ond; and Odell Gray,
and four half-sisters, Inez, Maisie,

Our Country -7. Right or Wrong
THE STRENGTH OF A COUNTRY e
The basic strength of this country lies in its
philosophy of life and government-not in its
natural resources and its industries and its
wealth. These -last, vital as they are, are but
the consequence of the first. They are the na-
tural development of a system which places
maximum freedom for the individual above
all other considerations.
Other nations have great resources--greater
in some particulars than our own. Russia is a
case in pdint. But other nations have not be :n
able, despite grandiose "five-year plans" and,
similar schemes, to put them to full use for
the benefit of the people. Super-government,
which robs the individual of his freedom, like-
wise robs him of his ingenuity and his ambi-
tion. The individual is simply the tool of the
state. .He is denied much, and often most, of
the fruits of his labors. Results are gained by
-mass action. -by driving and terrorizing the
people. 'But the individual, save for the man
in the saddle, never benefits.
This country grew great under the consti-
tutional idea of a government of limited
-powers-a government which maintained tlh'
army and navy, the courts and other essential
.services. and acted as an arbiter in the eco-
-nomic affairs of the country but never as a
-competitor or participant. This is the kind, and
-the only kind, of government under which the
Tights and freedoms of the people can be pre-
served, and it must not be undermined here.
Keep smiling-and buy U S Savings Bonds.
KEEP THE SECRET!
A loud chorus of "realists" urges America
to "keep the secret." Keep the atomic bomb
an American monopoly!
Oh, if we only could! There is obviously no
sense in disclosing gratuitously the American
production secrets. All misrepresentations to
the contrary, no reputable American scientist,
and no organization of atomic scientists have
ever advocated such a "gesture."
Why should we do an3) thing to accelerate
the Soviet advance towards atomic arma-
ments ? But tn fortunately, we cannot delay it.
['hose who live the best knowledge oL out
nuclear techllology, and the best appreciation
of Russian science and engineering, gicve from
three tu fifteen years as the time the Soviet
Union 1ill need to acquire its own atomic
bombs. Even the longest suggested term is
much too short to give us any comfort.
Those who preach that we have onty to
tighten the secrecy around our atomic labora-
tories and plants to make us safe are the
worst deceivers of the Atmerican people and
traitors to American security.-From the Bul-
letin of the Atomic Scientists.
Good husbandmen go forth to plow with
faith in their hearts. Since that epochal day
of long ago when man learned he could stir
the soil, put in seed, and in due time harvest
the grains, plowing has been an act of faith.
When spring's miracle has come to earth andi
the higher-climbing sun has dried the soil
enough, the soil is .made ready for the seeds.
Plowing is work, yes, but many a country-
man feels a kinship with the forces of-life as
he goes back and forth, back and forth, across
The brown, moist slices of soil curl from the
glistening share and lie like rows of sy.iine't--
rically placed brown ribbons. The sun's warm
rays dry the tops of the slices in a few min-
utes and small bits of dried earth fill from
the crests to the hollows below. Robins and
crows come to the field and walk along the
furrow, hunting for food. From the brushy
edges of the field pheasants fling their' hoarse
greetings to the spring day, and partr, Ige
drum rolls echo from the pasture swamps.

FRIDAY, JUNE 20, 1947
Hits Highest Mark
The 1947 legislature cost Florida
taxpayers more money than anyI
other regular session in history.
Figures from the office of the
state comptroller show $416,254 al-
ready has been spent, and vouchers
are on hand for an additional
$49,800. Bills for other expenses,
such as printing the final day's
journal oil both the house and athe
senate, special acts and bound vol-
umes of -general acts and legisla-
tive journals are expected to add
about $40,000 more.
The legislature first passed a hill
appropriating $400,000 fo r ex-
penses. A s-pecial act later was
passed appropriating $47,880 to
give eaeh legislator $6 a day extra
for expense-s. Even in the closing
days of the session, an additional
$75.000 appropriation was voted to
cover increased expenses.
Governor Caldwell allowed the
last appropriation to become law
Monday without his approval and
estimated tho. total legislative ex-
penses would exceed $500,000.
The 1945 session, including the
53-day extra session, cost $421,000.
The regular 60-day session of 1943
Besides voting themselves an ad-
ditional $6 a day for expenses, the
