Gulf Coast Loop
Pennant Series To
Open August 29
Wewahitchka Drops Out of
League Due To Loss of
Players and Slim Purse
At a meeting of the board of di-
rectors of the Gulf Coast League
held here it was decided to end
play. next Wednesday. August 25,
instead of September 8, in order
that playoffs may get underway for
the championship cup (which, by
the way. has disappeared some-
where along the line; it was sup-
posed to have been displayed in
each city in the loop: hasn't been
in St. Joe, as far as we know).
It is proposed, in this Shaugh-
nessy playoff, to match the first
place team against the third place
finisher, while the runners-up will
meet the fourth place team. First
round series would be the best two
out of three games, with the two
winners meeting in a three-out-of-
five series for the championship.
The series will open at the park of
the highest ranking league team
(which will be Apalachicola).
Apalachicola will meet either St.
Joe or Panama City in the opener
(we haven't belin able to find out
from the league secretary how the
teams stand), and DeFuniak will
take on the team that doesn't
meet the Oystermen.
'the Wewahitchka 'Gators- have
withdrawn from the league for the
balance of the season, stating this
was due to the fact that they had
lost a number of their players and
were unable to hire players to re-
-place the local boys. The 'Gators'
forfeited games shoved DeFuniak
up only two and a half games be-
hind the top-place Oysterinen. It
did not particularly change the
standings of St. Joe and Panama
City, who are tied for third spot.
Blountstown and Tyndall will fight
it out for fifth place, while the
'Gators sank to the bottom of the
pile with their eight forfeited tilts.
First round play in the series
will be woer by September 5, with
the championship play- beginning
on Labor Day.
Local Schools Will Open
August 30 for Fall Term
Principal Brooks Ask Parents To
Bring Birth Certificates for
First Year Pupils
Prof. Marvin Brooks, new princi-
; pal of the Port St. Joe schools, an-
nounces that the. fall term will

The school will be open for regis-
tration of first graders Wednesday.
August 25, beginning at 9 a. inm.
Parents are asked to bring birth
certificates for pupils or equivalent
.evidence of date of birth.
Registration for students from
the second grade up will be held
Thursday and Friday, August 26
"Those parents of first graders
who have not had their children
given physical .examination should
consult a physician and have it at-
tended to before school begins,"
said Prof. Rooks.
A list of faculty members will
be published next week.

Fledgling Organization Challenges
Older Civic Body for Mythical
Since defeating the decrepit Ro

their conduct has been so snobbish
that it has raised the ire of the

sued a challenge to the Kiwanians-
for-a benefit ball game to be played
next Wednesday afternoon at 4
o'clock in the local ball park. The

taking the Kiwanis Kardinals to

jority of the legislators agreed on
one specific bill and would not
consider any other measure.
The proposed bill provides for
the listing of all presidential elec-
tors on a separate ballot under the
names of their respective candi-
dates. It would include electors for
the anti-Truman Dixiecrats who

Our Country Right or Wrong
ALL SOUTHERNERS INSULTED
All Southerners, Republicans and Democrats
.alike, were properly indignant when they
heard their neighbors booed, hissed and in-
sulted at the Democratic convention in Phila-
delphia. In all the circumstances noboby could
blame Southern Democracy for the course it
took in holding a convention of its own in
Biirmingham. That was the one way in which
they could make emphatic their disapproval of
the treatment they received from the New
Deal wing of the party.
The ascendancy of this New Deal wing is no
-new thing, however, and the wonder is that
.Southern Democrats endured so much for -so
long. If any fault is to be found with their ac-
tion, it's the belatedness thereof. True, there
were mutterings in 1944, but no aggregation
could be put together that had courage to act.
'Southerners were mollified when Truman, a
.man of supposedly Southern leanings, was
*nominated on .the ticket with Roosevelt in
1944. It is apparent now, of course, that Tru-

thought he was.
Democrats down this way, or a major seg-
ment of them, are apparently determined that
they will be betrayed no longer-and it's about
time. It is inconceivable that those who
have formed the Jeffersonian Democratic
party at Birmingham could be enticed back
into the so-called national Democratic fold by
election time. Things have gone too far for
But all must realize that there is no hope of
electing the Thurmond-Wright ticket that was
nomiinated by the "Dixiecrats." It may well
happen that by or before the election a ma-

POSSIBILITY OF REPUBLICAN VICTORY
The GOP is brash enough to believe that
there is a possibility of a Republican victory in
North Carolina and possibly Florida. This is
based somewhat on changes in the type of pop-
ulation iii these states in recent years and by
the further knowledge that in the election of
1928, the last GOP victory year, Flor:da and
North Carolina delivered to the Republicans,
as did Virginia, M-aryland, Tennessee and such
border states as Kentucky, Texas and Okla-
It is conceded by some of the Democratic
leaders that the third party ticket in these
Southern states mlay have enough strength to
swing the vote away from the Democratic
party in states south of the Mason-Dixon Line.
This is regardless of what may come out of
the Henry Wallace movement, as he and his
philosophies are anathema to Southerners.-

" ~~ raol-1JI~EZC rr-';~-;r
Appearing as guest speaker be-
fore the Panama City Kiwanis club
last week, E. Clay Lewis Jr.. of this
city, taking for his. subject "The
Jury System and Suggestions for
Improving It," said, that the con-
tinued legislative yielding to pres-
sure for exemption from jury serv-
ice would eventually result in a
breakdown of administration of jus-
tice in Florida. and urged adoption
of the federal commissioner system
of filling jury boxes.
"Too many groups and classifica-
tions of citizens have already been
exempted from jury service, and
each new session of the legislature
brings new pressure and new ex-
emptions," lie declared. "If it con-
tiltnues, we'll eventually have no one
for jury duty but loafers and vag-
rants only seeking the $3 daily fee
that the state allows."
Lewis. the Democratic nominee
for judge of the 14th judicial circuit,
laiheled a summnnons for jury duty as
"a mark of good character" and ser-
vice as "g, high honor and responsi-
bility of citizenship."
He said he preferred the federal
jury commissioner system for fill-
ing jury boxes because it requires a
thorough investigation of all pros-
pective veniremen. while county
commissioners have been inclined
to take the first two or three hun-
dr-d names from the registration
i'olls for 'the purpose.
Value of Legumes
Well-fed, deep-rooted legumes
have a twofold value. They supply
a low cost and abundant source of
proteins, minerals and vitamins for
livestock. They will rebuild the or-
ganic matter supply and break up
packed soils. Legumes that have
had plenty of phosphorus and pot-
ash will push mineralized organic
matter down below plow depth, re-
storing to good tilth the top 18 to
25 inches of soil. The tap roots will
penetrate closely packed soil, aer-
ate it and enable crops following in
the rotation to send their roots deep-
er for plant food and water.
The Treasure State
Montana is known as the "Treas-
ure State." It is richly endowed with
raw materials essential to industrial
production. Coal reserves have been
estimated at more than 400 billion
