showed a slashinig backfield, and a
stonewall line Thursday night of
last week when they took on the
Bay High 'B team from Panama
City in an unscheduled game that
was played at Centennial Field uw-

crowd of 1200. The St. Joe lads kept
the Panama Tornado Baby Bees
bottled up all through the evening,
taking them down to a 33-6 defeat.
St. Joe took the .ball on the kick-
off and then took it on two line
bucks to within scoring distance,
Farr'is. and Owens carrying the ball.
But a fumble aet the Sharks back
on the Bay B 2-tyard line and after
that the ball remained in the Bay B
territory until the end of the quar-

Sharks an opportunity- to score.
The first score came in the see-

"Moos*e" Ricektson, fullback and
captain of the Sharks, took the ball
over for the first touchdown. Try

CAR INSURANCE ACT IS BIG STEP
We have heard a number of car owners in
Port St. Joe reviling the law which went into
effect October 1 requiring operators of motor
vehicles to be financially responsible for an
accident. And quite a few of them, we know,
would be hard-pushed to scrape up one or two
thousand dollars should they become involved
in an accident, letalone the ten or twenty thou-
sand that might be asked for serious injury
The law does not compel a motorist to take
out insurance, and he might drive for the re-
mainder of ,his life and not need such insur-
ance, but if he does carry it, has an accident
in which someone is seriously injured or kill-d,
he can let the insurance company do the worry-
ing. If he doesn't carry insurance and gets in-
volved in an accident, he might be sued for anll
amount that, if he had a home, he would be
forced to sell it to raise the money. And in ad-
dition he would lose his driver's license until
such time as he took out insurance or could
prove himself financially responsible.
Florida is, we believe, the 41st state to pass
such a law. Heretofore, in Florida, anybody
who had the price of a broken-down jaloppy
could have it licensed and operate on the high-
ways without thought of the dangers it might
offer to other motorists. Under this new law
a majority of these cars will be retired to the
junk heap where they belong because of the
fact that no insurance company \will insure a
car that is not mechanically safe.
Many drivers are not what they should be.
Some have piled up records of accidents due
to fast and careless driving, others have rec-
ords of driving while intoxicated. The editor
of'The Star, back in 1922, had the experience
of being involved in an accident in which the
blame rested entirely with the operator of the
other vehicle, although the only damage was
to our Model T Ford. A Polish vegetable
grower with five kids, no money and a record
of habitually driving while drunk, forced us
off the street with his old decrepit truck, up
on to the sidewalk and through a picket fence.
The fence demolished a headlight and front
fender and the truck caved in the side of the
car. We suffered only a few bruises, but we
had to pay for the repair of our car simply be-
cause the Pole didn't have a nickle and a law-
yer said we couldn't attach his truck because
it was a means of livelihood.
In the future, such people as t
able to acquire insurance and, wi
to drive taken from them, wil
endanger the lives of others th
or drunken driving.
We believe it is a good law a
