Make It Best Three Out of
Five Games By Downing
Saints 2-1 Wednesday
Taking the final tilt of the five-
gamei series for the championship
of the Gulf Coast League, the Ap-
alachicola Oystermen emerged as
the 19'47 champs, Wednesday after-
noon as they downed the Port St.
Joe .Saints 2-1 before a crowd of
2000 fans at the local ball park.
St. Joe took a one-run lead in
the first inning as Hannon took
two bags on an overthrow to first
by the Apalach third -baseman and
came home as' Mitche.ll singled
through second. It looked like an-
other counter or two as Belin hit
to third with Mitchell'being caught
at second, Weeks singled to cen-
ter field and Belin went to third.
'But the inning ended with no fur-
ther scoring as Herring fouled out
to third to retire the side.
It was three men up and three
men. down up to the fourth when
the Apalachicolans'scored two runs
on one hit 'and'three. errors.
Sanderson flied' out to Deundy and
Cowart was safe at first as Dendy
muffed his high fly. A. Granmmas
'flied out to Herring for the second
out and then the. grief started. P.
Grammas hit a long one to deep
right to drive in Cowart and then
crossed the plate himself as Dendy
fumbled the relay from Weeks In
right field. It looked like more runs
as Bloodworth made second as Be-
lin at short fumbled his line drive
and then threw wild to first, but

New Food Process
In "dehydrofreezing," the fruit or
vegetable is carried through only
the first step of the dehydrating
process. It is reduced in weight
and volume but not as much
as a completely dehydrated prod-
uct. Still, it doesn't take up as much
space and weighs much less than
when it comes from the field, Then
it is frozen. Since the vitamins and
flavor are not damaged by the first
dehydration process, the "dehydro-
frozen" product keeps its fresh qual-
ity. Some of the products even
keep their original shape after go-
ing through the new process. And
they are very .easy to return to
serving form, as not as much water
is removed as by the full dehydrat-

Our Country Right or Wrong
FOR THE SOUTH AND THE NATION
If the South were ruled by a totalitarian
government, it would probably have a five-
year plan or a ten-year plan. But it is com-
posed of free people, and so it has only pro-
grams. These programs, however, represent
goals and ideals, and they set up standards by
which to work.
One such program has been proposed by a
special committee designated by a congres-
sional agriculture subcommittee to study the
economic and industrial development of the
South. The committee, composed of educators,
government officials and business men, de-
clares that the South is "probably the nation's
greatest potential area for development," and
then proceeds to set up an eight-point program.
' That program, briefed down, would include:
(1) Financial assistance to small business
through loan insurance. (2) Research and its
application to, enterprise. (3) Improved trans-
portation policy. (4) Elimination of monopo-
listic practices. (5) Elimination of trade bar-
riers and unfair restrictions on southern prod-
ucts. (6) More use of surplus war plants. (7)
Higher standards of welfare and wage's and
labor'practices. (8) A federal program de-
signed to encourage industrial expansion and
improvement in education and health.
This broad program would help the nation
to make better use of the South. The resource:
of this section, in materials and people, are
not being utilized. Because the per capital in-
come of the South is only $795 (as of 1945),
compared with the national average of $1,150,
the South is not the market it should be. Be-
cause it does not have educational advantages
equal to those of other parts of the nation, its
citizens are handicapped. Because its health
standards are lower, fewer of its young men
are fit for military service,
The eight goals suggested by, the. special
committee are all things to be done for the
improvement of the nation through improve-
-ment of the South. They would-tend to equal-

this matter can rise above sectionalism, it can
render a service to the entire nation.
PERSONAL TO CONGRESS
We have before, us a letter written to the
congress by Louis Mallette of Los Angeles.
We think that others as well as the congress
should also read it. Mallette writes:
"To the Congress-Our unpreparedness In
1941 was blamed on the chief executive, tnr
congress, God, Hitler, appeasers, and who do
"Our unpreparedness in 1947 is the respon-
sibility of congress! The record is clear.
"Mr. Congressman, how did you feel when
Bataan fell? Did you have a son there? Were
you a little more than ashamed when Cor-
regidor fell? Did you have a son there? Do
you really remember these-the darkest sad-
dest days in modern American history?
"The flower of American manhood-volun-
teers all-were dying and we were helpless.
We were also ashamed-rightly so. Are you
still ashamed ?
"They went down bravely First they asked,
because they had a right to ask, 'Where is the
fleet?' Remember? Later, they were the
'fighting bastards of Bataan; no mom. no pop.
no Uncle Sam.' So they died on Bataan-if
they were lucky. Others spent years of tor-
ture in Jap prison camps. Some died there.
"There may be another Bataan. Will your
son or grandson be there? Will he call for the
fleet you are failing to provide? Will he be a
'fighting bastard'-or will he have 'Uncle
Sam'-that's YOU, you know.
"Pardon me for getting personal with you.
You see, it is personal with me-my son was
Lieut. James T. Mallette, DSC, U. S. A., cap-
tured on Corregidor, died in a Jap camp two
weeks before liberation. Nothing more can be
done for him by you, but there will be other
young boys. God give you the wisdom to guide
our nation. I don't want to argue with you on
ideologies.! 1 just don't want future soldiers
calling for help that never comes."
-The National Legionnaire.
If a lot of people we know in Port St. Joe
would get out and work as hard for the goon
of the community as they do endeavoring to
elect politicians to office who will hardly
condescend to speak to them after they are
elected, we would have a much better city.

Freeze Seeds in Ice Cubes
to Speed Slow Growers
Seeds of many perennial flowers
take months to germinate; in some
Trollius, hardy phlox, dictamnus,
irises, peonies and some lilies pre-
fer to be frozen before they start
to grow, and may be sown in a flat,
or flower pot, and left outdoors in
a sheltered place over winter.
A substitute for this lengthy treat-
ment can be used by any owner of
an electric ice box. Take an ice
tray from the refrigerator and fill
it half full of water. Float a few
seeds on the water in each compart-
ment, and freeze it. Then fill the
trays completely with water and
freeze again. The seeds will then
be encased in ice and may be left
there several days, and planted
when thawed out.
. With other slow germinating sub-
jects taking 30 days to a year to
start, use the following method:
Fill a flat or the shallow pot which
florists call a pan, with potting soil,
firm the, soil and broadcast the
seed, then covering lightly and firm
again. Place the receptacle in ,a
shaded location.where there is free
circulation of air. During spring,
summer and fall, water often
enough to prevent drying out. A
mulch of peat moss will help re-
tain moisture.. In winter place in
a protected place outdoors and cov-
er with !leaves. A place under the
eaves of the house n the side away
from the prevailing wind is good;
or a cold .fram may be used. Even-
tually the 'seds will sprout and the
seedling. ef appear. They should
