It was' a fast game, free from
the usual errors (but two errors
:beiag made by .both teams), and
can be compared to the last game
of the Marianna series Of last year,
when the Saints set Marianna down
2 0. It was Iby far the. best game
of this season.
-Clifton 'Robbins hurled ,a three-
lhit game and had the Spartans eat,
ing out'of his hand throughout the
tilt.' His control was perfect, ana
he set eight Spartans down by the
strikeout route. His IPast ball was
'whizzing all afternoon, as Cox's
catching hand will attest. Only
seven Spartans re-ached first, with
ibut one Teaching third.
With one out in the first, Dendy

JULi FOU .W47
TODAY, we commemorate again the anniversary
of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence
of these United States. It is a fitting day to revalu-
ate the Four Freedoms for which we have engaged
in three wars to maintain. Let us remember that in
essence they ate the same freedoms fought for and
won for us in the struggling 1770's-and that they
are the sum total of all that makes life worthwhile.
To truly honor our forefathers who fought for lib-
erty, let us today give honor to those still living who
have fought for the glory of the Four Freedoms,
that every man, woman and child might live in
peace and security.

over some new service just in-

"Everybody should take a squint
at the underside of their car," said
Vic. "It takes a real beating. Rust
and flying gravel and sand' eat away
at the metal, rot out fenders and
make the car look old and worn
before its time. '
"This new 'Underseal' we have

Our Country Rght or Wrong
Another "birthday" has arrived. Americans
celebrate today, joyously, enthusiastically, as
they have done for almost a century and three-
quarters, because they are privileged to live
under the flag that guarantees the greatest
freedom of any on earth.
America has proved to the world and to its
own satisfaction that there can be a govern-
iment by and with the consent of the people
that will endure. No country is wealthier,
no country has a government more stable, in
no country is there greater safety, and in no
country is there more liberty in a large way.
In some respects we have been curtailed in
some of our liberties; in recent years there
has been a growing. tendency to-restrict, but
by and large the United States is the most in-
dependent, the freest and the, most liberal of
all existing governments. While wep eare re-
stricted in some things, we have greater free-
dom in, many others than are granted in any
other country. .
Once in a while we make. mistakes in gov-
ernment, once in a while we follow for a time
after a false god, but generally the American
people get back to original principles in the
end, and the government goes on as safely,
as honestly, as efficiently and as effectively as
any government in the world, and both busi-
ness and property are safer than in any place
in the world. We have. more cheap politics and
mistakes in government, perhaps, than in most
countries where established principles are sel-
dom changed and age-old traditions rule-in all
things, but we learn by our mistakes and much
as we often ridicule ourselves, we generally
profit by them.
While we often elevate public men who are
unworthy of our confidence, we generally
keep the better ones when we finally discover
their real worth, and soon rid ourselves of
the unworthy, and while there is generally a
good deal of froth in our official life, there is
more that is sound and solid.
Among us we have a number who will see
nothing but the froth, and so put in much of
their time criticizing the decadence of things
generally, but there are few, very few, who
would trade their country and its government
for any other they can name. When we look
about us in the world and see the eternal strife
and bloodshed that marks the-political ascend-
ancy of first one, then another faction in iihany
older established nations; the blood that is
spilled, the trampling that is done, we realize
mighty quickly that what we have at home is
the best that is to be had anywhere.
The American people, from a small begin-
ning, have done immeasurably well. From a
handful of super-patriots determined no longer
to submit to the tyranny of a mother country
to the present great republic with peace, con-
tentment and happiness throughout its broad
area (if we may ovelook the various strikes
underway' at present), among its 150,000,000
peoples., is a far cry, yet it is in but 171 years
that it has all been done.
Greater progress to real freedoni has been'
made in the United States in these years than
has been msle in any other part of the world
in several times as many.,,Great Britain alone
of all the other countries,, gives to its people
anything near as great protection and freedom
as are guaranteed to the people of the United
States-anid even Britain has not been able
to bring to her people the prosperity and the
wealth that Americans enjoy. The offspring
has outstripped the mother'in progress.
We stand, a new nation comparatively, the
greatest in the world, respected and admired,
also envied by -all the world. While it is a for-
-tunate position, it is also a position of respon-
sibility, for we have an example to set and a
caution to observe.

Salad a Day Helps
Keep Ills Away
The' New Broad Leaf Endive Is a
Fine Summer Salad.
Green, leafy vegetables, which
supply your family with Vitamin A
and calcium, include the leaf crops
which are served uncooked in sal-
ads. If you like bowl salads, you
can serve one at least once a day
SMany leaves can be used for bowl
salad, including all the greens
which are also cooked. But our
chief reliance will probably be on
leaf lettuce and endive, especially
the form known as escarolle or
broad leaved endive.
During hot weather we must de.
pend on escarolle, which takes 90
days to mature. By sowing a row
at the same time as the first lettuce
sowing, we may have it ready in
midsummer, when trouble with let.
tuce usually begins, Three sowings
of endive, made twenty days apart,
wgl provide you wir.i daily salad
leaves until freezing weather..
The best quality of both broad
and curly leaved endive is ob-
tained by giving the plants plenty
of room in the row so they mature
loose heads. The leaves grow crisp
and turn cream colored at the base.
Newer varieties lack the bitter tang
which older forms used tc have be-
fore frost had sweetened them. Il
is no longer the practice to bleach
the leaves by tying them up, or
placing the heads between boards,
as this reduces the vitamin content
)f the leaves.
' Endive not only stands hot weath-
er better than lettuce, but it re-
mains in good condition longer in
the fall, being improved in quality
by frosty weather.

For the first time in a school

two to a county, working through
the organized health departments,
conducted the examinations.
This 'vast task of checking Flor-

begin until March in most areas.
Outstanding among the -condi-

heart conditions:, bad 'teeth and ton-
