VOLUME X PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA FRIDAY, MAY 20,1949 NUMBER34
Saints Chalk Up
Second Win In
Down Oystermen 8 to 7, But
Almost Lose Game
Much to the gratification of local
fans, most of whom were somewhat
down in the dumps because the
Saints were making such a poor
showing in the Gulf Coast League,
the boys came through Wednesday
at Apalachicola to defeat the Oys-
termen 8-7 in what was said to be
an exciting game.
St. Joe 'took a four-run lead in
the first two frames, with Apalachi-
cola failing to score. The Oyster-
men made it 4-1 in the fourth, and
then in the fifth the Saints shoved
over three more runs to make it
7-1. They chalked up another in the
seventh, and three Apalachicola
players crossed the plate in the
same inning to make it 8-4.
The local lads almost lost the
game in the last\ of the ninth lihen,
due to errors, Apalachicola scored
three runs to make it 8-7.
Davidson went the route for St.
Joe on the mound and Bennie
Burke took top honors in hitting,
getting 4 for 4. Outstanding play
was by John Adams who hit a
double with the bases loaded to
bring in three runs.

Visit In St. Andrews
Mrs. T. E. Parker and children,
Fay, Bruce and Larry, visited Sun-
day in St. Andrews with Mr. and
Mrs. Michael Namynanik.
Alice opened a door that led into
a large room filled with agitated
men. Some sprawling behind pa-
per-littered desks, some huddled to-
gether in noisy little groups and
others dashing hither and thither;
the whole effect being one of ut-
"Dear, dear, how queer every-
thing is today," Alice thought as
she breathlessly found a seat. She
crossed her hands in her .Jap and

strange and the words were not as
How doth the little lobbyist
Improve each shining hour
And make a yea vote turn to nay
By some strange hidden power.
How cheerfully he seems to grin
How neatly spreads his claws
And welcomes legislators in
With gently smiling jaws.
Hearing a pattering of feet, Alice
looked around to see the March
Hare and the Mad Hatter seating
themselves beside her. "We're just
in time for the caucus race," said
the March Hare. "What's a caucus
race?" asked Alice.
"Watch these men, you'll see," he
replied. The men were in heated
argument over an amendment to
amend an amendment. They all
talked at once and nobody seemed
to hear or pay any attention to
anyone else. The Hare cried out,
"The race is over!" "But who
won?" queried Alice. "Why every-
body has won, of course," said the
Mad Hatter in disgust. "They fi-
nally passed a no-fence law, but
with so many amendments no cow
in the world could tell what the
law is. So everybody wins."
"Yes," said the Hare, "the cows
must keep off the highways, but
they may still roam in the 'back
country,' but the bill fails to pro-
vide for someone to explain' to the
cows where the 'back country' ends
and the 'front country' begins."
Alice thought the whole thing
very absurd, but they all looked so
.grave she did not dare laugh.
Puzzled, she asked, "What is a no-
fence law, anyhow?" "It's a law

May Solve State's
Governor and Senate and
House Leaders Talk ,
Matters Oveir '
An apparent solution to Florida's
money troubles appeared in, the
legislature, Monday with a peace
meeting between Governor Fuller
Warren and leaders of the house
and senate to get together on a
workable program, details of which
have not yet been divulged, but un-
doubtedly will be a tax agreeable
to all factions except the taxpayer.
Both bodies had indicated over
five weeks that they would not pass
his 14-point tax program to raise
approximately $70,000,000 for the
next two years in new money. The
governor continued to threaten a
veto for any general sales tax or a
tax that looked like a general sales
Comptroller Clarenc( Gay mean-
while continued to insist that the
state would be operating in the red
by September 1 unless new revenue
was 'provided, and apparently all
factions are agreed on this point.
Apparently what will happen is
that.some one or several indirect
taxes on business will be passed to
provide the state anywhere from
five to ten million dollars more in
new money per year, and the legis-
lature the wilL-c1l' on the execu-
tive to practice emrough economy to
make up the balance.
The cattlemen's ,version of the
livestock fencing bill was reported
out by a conference committee-a
bill that in effect will make it il-
legal for livestock to roam on the
public roads of Florida, but will re-
tain the open range in the back
This is not the bill Governor War-
ren wanted, but at least it will give
protection to motorists.from cows
and hogs. The effective date will
be July 1, 1950. The governor has
not yet indicated whether he will
approve it, but his supporters in
the house, as well as the senate,
agree that it's the best they can do
for this session.
The house of representatives has
reached out to include all colleges
and universities in Florida within
its hunt for communism. The Botts
committee now is studying the re-
turned questionnaires from profes-
sors and teachers in the three state
institutions of higher learning and
still is considering just how far it
will go in trying to force the teach-

The doors opened at 6 p. m. for

the food committee, and the Girl
Scouts had charge of the soft drink
stand and ice cream booth.
Decorations in the auditorium
held over from the ':;unior-senior

pageant. "The American Pano-
rama," which was the presentation
of the evening. Crossed flags, one
of the original flag of the 13 states
and ,the other our present flag,
against the stage curtains made a
fitting background for the young
ladies whose crowns spelled the
-name of the production.
Thrones with the coats of arms
of Spain and France dominated the
space below the stage. The band-
stand was a miniature garden with
a picket fence, and a huge crepe
paper bell was suspended from the
center of the auditorium ceiling.
Greenery was used here and there
to form a proper setting for the
march of events.
The spectacle of the pageant was
something to see and to remember.
This pageant, highlighting'the his-
tory of America, with its superb
acting and authentic' period cos-
tumes, was arranged .and directed
by Mrs. Ned Porteir, and it was a
tribute to the unlimited co-opera-
tion of the large cast and the sev-
eral committees who worked to
make this a success. The band, un-
der the direction of C. F. Harrison,
deserves special mention for its
arrangement of special music.
The Woman's Club is grateful for
the co-operation of the merchants
of the city, the many individuals
who gave their time, The Star for
publicity, and the untiring efforts
of the members who contributed to
the success of this undertaking.

We've had a mansion under con-
struction on the edge of the Dead
Lakes for several months now, and
our friends are worrying us to
death asking when we expect to
move in, apparently with the inten-
tion of visiting with us over the
week-end and doing a bit of fishing.
Others express amazement over
the fact, -and inquire why there
hasn't been anything in The Star
about the house. To which we've
been replying that we didn't think
anyone would be interested.
Anyway, to satisfy the innate
curiosity of all and sundry, we ex-
pect to have our new domicile par-
tially livable by the end of this
month, in order that we can spend
week-ends there after opening of
the fishing season. Meanwhile,
we're putting in all of our available
time finishing up the interior. You
see, we're not multi-millionaires,
and since we didn't want to slap a
mortgage on the place, we're using
the pay-as-we-go plan and fully, in-
tend to do all the interior finishing
possible ourselves. If we're lucky,
we hope to move in shortly after
the first of the year. ,
Our wife, at the beginning (and
possibly she still, harbors the
thought) apparently'had but little
faith in our ability as a carpenter
and general handyman, in spite of
the fact that we have repeatedly
assured her that we were fully
competent and able to saw a board
straight and drive a nail. Conse-
quently she hovers over us like a
mother hen over a lone chick when
we are working and reaches out
her hand sort of hesitantly when
she figures we aren't doing some-
thing the way she thinks it should
Incidentally, she swings a wicked
hammer and is going to' be proud
of the fact that at least half the
nails~.in/the inside woodwork will
have been driven by her lily-white
hands- provided. of course, that
S.she glows a couple 'inc.it -u w
thumbs to replace those slie lia al-
ready battered into unri-eeognizailel
Anyway, we're deriving a great
deal of enjoyment out of our build-
ing project'and, incidentally, doing
a lot of hard work. But when the
house is completed and we move in
we'll have a satisfaction that can
be derived only when you know
you have constructed something
good and lasting with your own
Keep your eyes peeled, folks, for
we'll let you all know when the
House of Smith is completed, and,
as occasion permits, we'll invite
you all up to spend an occasional
week-end with us, catch yourself a
mess of fish right in our front yard,
prop your feet up on the porch rail-
ing at dusk after a hard day's fish-
ing and tell of the big ones that
got away and then, should the eve-
ning be cool, bask in an easy chair
in front of an open fireplace.
Yes, folks, we're looking forward
eagerly to the day when all of our
work is completed and we can
move into our new domicile and
leave the job of publishing The
Star to someone else.
"Safety for me and mine through-
out 1949" is suggested as a New

Our Country Right or Wrong
WE'RE GETTING 'EM LINED UP
We had been intending to write an editorial
on this subject for some time, but just never got
around to it. However, last week Rev. S. J. Allen
came into the office with three articles regarding
the Presbyterian Church and hesitantly asked us
if we could use them. "I know the space in The
Star is what you sell to derive revenue," he said,
"and I can't afford to pay for these, so do what
you want with them."
We informed Rev. Allen that for years we had
been endeavoring to have the local ministers
turn in church activities, without much success,
and that we had been contemplating discontinu-
ing the regular Sunday services column because
it wasn't news and had no informational value,
since everyone in the community knows the hour
of services and that the pastor will deliver the
and since Rev. Lee Graham has co-operated with
us ever since taking over the St. James pastorate
here, perhaps the other ministers, who may have
had the same thoughts as Rev. Allen, will bring
in interesting news of their churches, since the
greater portion of the people of the community
belong to some church and consequently they'd
be interested in news of their church as well as
SOMETI-fNG'S GOING TO POP!
We won't endeavor to predict just when it will
happen, not being a seer or a soothsayer, but
the way the legislature is sniping at Governor
Fuller Warren and shoving him around, we'd
say that something is going to pop in the legisla-
tive halls in the near future-might even be be-
fore this editorial gets in the mails.
The legislature has been giving Fuller a pretty
tough time, and he has a lot of campaign prom-
ises, pledges and personal prestige at stake, and
from what we've seen of him, he isn't going to
take it lying down, for he's a hustler and very
aggressive. This dilly-dallying that has been go-
ing on up there in Tallahassee probably is get-
ting him fidgity and rarin' for some action.
Looks like there is going to be a lot of last-
minute jamming of bills through the two houses,
for the entire house must run for re-election next
year and half of the senate also, and how those
boys vote from now until the end of the session
may represent success or defeat at the polls.
Yes, sir, we're sure something is going to pop!
The other day we noticed an ad for an electric
toothbrush. Pretty soon- we'll have reached the
point where it'll take a kilowatt to get us from
bed to the office-which won't hurt the feelings
of the Florida Power Corporation.
The reverend was quite startled and told us Well, anyway, we can't say-that the legislature

Bill Provides for Two
Would Give No Relief To This Dis-
trict Made Up of 16 Counties
A bill to provide for two addi-
tional- congressmen for Florida if
the 1950 census shows the state is
entitled to additional representa-
tion in congress, was introduced in
the state senate Monday.
The bill re-divides the counties
of the state to allow for either one
or two more congressmen. Florida
now has six, the sixth district be-
ing created a few years ago in
If the state is entitled to but one
new congressman, the new seventh
district would be made up of the
counties of Alachua, Baker, Brad-
ford, Clay, Columbia, Dixie, Gil-
christ, Hamilton, Lafayette, Levy,
Madison, Nassau, Putnam, Taylor,
Suwannee and Union.
If two new seats are made avail-
able, the new eighth district would
be composed of Collier, Charlotte,
DeSoto, Glades, Hendry, Highlands,
Hardee, Lee, Manatee, Okeechobee
The measure would give no re-
lief to the unwieldy third district
made up of the 16 counties of Bay,"
Calhoun, Escambia, Franklin, Gads-
den, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson, Jeffer-
son, Leon, Liberty, Okaloosa, Santa
Rosa, Wakulla, Walton and Wash-
ington. We urge all our readers to
contact Senator Olin G. Shivers
and Representative George Tapper
urging them to oppose this measure
as it stands and work toward hav-
ing it changed to where a portion
of the proposed new North Florida
district would be taken from the
present third district.

ing staffs of private schools to de-
clare, th.h-_elve, on :communism
and Florida segregation laws. The
committee did agree that it was all
right for the instruction staff of
Florida A. & M. College for negroes
not to declare themselves on, the
segregation question. Still unsettl-
ed is what the house will do if
members of the faculty in private
institutions refuse to answer and
defy the house..
Fate- of the fresh water fish and
game commission was still uncer-
tain this week, although friends of
that commission apparently had an
overwhelming majority in the
house. A parliamentary maneuver
resulted in putting on the calendar
a bill that would repeal all" of Flor-
ida's black bass laws, take away
the police powers of the commis-
sion, and make it impossible to en-
force laws against illegal seining.
The friends of conservation lacked
the necessary two-thirds vote to
take it off the calendar, but showed
more than a comfortable majority.
There seems little likelihood that
this session will refer to the peo-
ple any new vote on taking the
constitutional authority of the. conm-
mission away from it.
State regulation of electric and
gas utilities was a little closer this
week as bills to equalize rates and
control these private companies
get favorable reports from both
senate and house committees. The
chief opposition comes from a few
cities Which own their own light
plants, and from the REA, both of
which fear state regulation over
private companies would result in
a state-wide comparison of rates.
Bills now before the legislature
specifically exempt the city-owned
plants and the REA.
A surprising overnight switch in
senate support resulted in passage
of the bill to set up a central pur-
chasing agent for the state under
direct control of the governor. The
senate had previously refused to
consider anything but a bill that
would lodge purchasing authority
with the entire cabinet.
Friends of the governor, how- i
ever, were able to convince the ma-
jority that he should be given the
sole responsibility, with the cabinet
acting only as an advisory board.
Thus, in the closing days of this
session, Governor Warren's sup- 4
porters are showing much more
strength than they originally ex- 4
pected to have. This is one of the
reasons why members of the sen-
ate, as well as the house, who have
been fighting his financial program
now are beginning to talk compro-
Talk of a special session has
died down as the closing days of
this session make it apparent that
some means will ,be provided to
relieve the threatened, general fund
A quick tax to bring, in five to
ten million dollars a year and one
that will be collectible this sum-
mer, is expected to be the legisla-
ture's answer to Warren's request
for more money. The same group
that refused to give Governor Cald-
well more money in 1947 still is in'
the saddle in the house and may be
expected to hold the lid on new

ALICE IN TALLAHASSEE
(Continued from page 1)
to make people fence," replied the
Hatter. "Then why don't they say
so?" asked Alice. "It isn't that
simple in the legislature," said the
Hatter, "they do things the hard
way. If they made things direct and
simple they might get through be-
fore their sixty days were up. They
never really do much until the last
three days of the session."
Alice sighed wearily, "Well, then,
why not wait until 'the last three
days to start?" she asked. "Think
of the money they would save."
"Who is interested in saving either
time or pIoney?" snapped the Hat-
ter, "nothing less than six figures
counts in Tallahassee. They find it
is not economical to save small
amounts because it involves too
much paper work."
"Suppose we change the sub-
ject." the March Hare interrupted,
yawning. "I wish they'd do some-
thing amusing like voting some
more money for schools without
providing the necessary revenue-
"But what's, the use making ap-
-propriations without levying taxes
to provide the revenue?" asked
Alice. "Because they make such
nice headlines," laughed the Hat-
At this moment a florid-faced
legislator began gasticulating wild-
ly and calling for MORE economy
in government. "We haven't had
any economy yet, so how can we
have more?" said Alice. "You
mean we can't have less," snapped
back the Hatter. "It's very easy to
have more than nothing."
"The trouble with economy is
that everybody wants it for some-
"body else," yawned the March
HIare. "The governor calls for econ-
ony in the legislature, and the
legislature calls for economy in the
governor's office and, of course,
the poor taxpayer would like to see
economy eierywhere-buit nobody
pays any attention to the taxpayer."
At that moment there was a
great commotion among the men
on the floor. "They've passed an-
other bill," said the Hatter in great
glee, "and it's only the fifth week
of the session. The slash pine has
just won a heated battle over the
royal palm for the honor of becom-
ing the official state\ tree." He
looked for Alice, but she had gone.
As Alice made her way out-of the
building she vowed she would
