Bill for New Road
Number of Other Measures
for Roads In This Area
Representative George Tapper of
Gulf county has introduced a num-.
ber of local bills in the legislature
designating certain roads in, Gulf
county as state roads in order that
the state road department can in-
clude them in its road building pro-
Another proposal, submitted by
Representative Tapper and Repre-
sentative Bryant Patton of Frank-
lin county, is the designating of an
almost direct-route highway from
Port St. Joe to Apalachicola, which,
it is estimated would cut off about
13 miles from this city to Perry via
what is known as the Perry cut-off,
now under construction.
This road would begin on State
Road 71 just east of the Port St.
Jo.e city limits and-'extend almost
in' a straight line to a point north
of Apalachicola near. Tilton. '
Another bill would provide for
-the construction of a road extend--
in'g from a 'point near Columbus
Bayou on Lake Wimico to intersect
with the proposed new Port St. Joe-
Apalachicola route, which would al-
low fishermen to drive directly to
the shores of Lake Wimico.
Tapper, with Representative Sum-
mers of Liberty county, also intro-
duced a measure designating a new
road to begin at a point on State
Road 71 within the city limits of
Wewahitchka and extend easterly
to intersect with State Road 65 in
Liberty' county, thus giving an al-
most straight road from the county
seat to Tallahassee.
Among several other bills desig-
nating state roads, Tapper also in-
troduced one for a road in Gulf,
Bay and Washington counties be-
ginning at White City and extend-
ing northwest to Greenhead in
; Washington county, opening up an
area that at present has no road of
any kind with the exception of road
381 .into -Panama City.

Here are some tips on how to
make cut flowers last longer-save
them for the flower show:
Cut flowers with a knife rather
than with scissors so as to make a
clean cut, which will leave the wa-
,ter channels undamaged.
-Splitting woody stems, such as
Half an inch of water is just as
good as deep water, for water is ab-
sorbed only through the cut stem.
Hydrazine sulphate, which is put
up under various trade names, used
in the water is helpful.
Singe the stems of plants having
milky juices, such as poinsettias and
poppies. Cut poppies before they
open or petals will drop off readily.
It is much better to cut flowers
in the afternoon than in the morn-
Flowers like it cool, and the
higher the temperature the more
moisture they lose and the quicker
Fresh-cut flowers should be placed
in water around 70 degrees rather
than in cold water.
Such flowers as calendulas, snap-
dragons, clarkia, stock, pansy, daf-
fodil, marigold, godetia, salpiglossis
and nemesis will keep longer if
they are associated with copper,
either through the use of copper
containers, copper wire or brass
shot submerged in water. This
treatment is detrimental to carna-

Amaryllis, 2 teaspoons household
ammonia, 1 quart water. Daisies, 8

Gailardia, 2 tablespoons salt, 1 pint

If you enter the homes of the ju-
--niors or seniors in Port St. Joe, I'm
sure you will see a large red circle
drawn around April 20. They have
good reason to do this. That's the
-night of the junior-senior banquet
and prom. The junior class is work-,
ing hard on their theme, which will
not be revealed until that night. '
The majority of the ,gi1is will
have new formals and the boys new
suits. The atmosphere around St.
Joe seems filled to the extent with
excitement about the prom. I am
sure St. Joe is backing the students
of senior high and hope they will
enjoy immensely the- night of the
SOMEWHERE IN KOREA
Seoul seems to. be the spot ,
Where we will try to make a stand
In the land that people forgot.
We shake, we shiver, we're freezing
' Just policing this land.
Living with the memories,
Waiting to see our gals,
Hoping while we are away
They don't marry our pals.
We're soldiers of the 'army,
Earning our measly pay,
Guarding people with millions
For only $2.40 a day.
But when we get to heaven
Saint Peter we will tell:
"We're from Korea, sir,
We've served.our time in hell."

propriations bills calling for $120,-
000,000 for'the next two years, but
these have been killed off.
In the house, a.'bill has passed to
continue the present general ap-
propriations act if this legislature
cannot agree on a new one, thus
holding the line at the 1949-50 level
of state spending. The senate has
not acted on it.
No More Pre-Session Caucuses
Sen. Charley Johnson of Starke
will preside over the 195a senate,
and Farris Bryant of Marion county
will lead the house of that year.
Party caucuses decided on the'
Starke insurance agent and the
Ocala attorney early in the session.
The house later agreed, however,
that it will hold no more caucuses
for speaker until 1954, after the
1955 house is nominated. Practice
Body blows against crime are be-
ing thrown around by both houses
of the Florida legislature, with re-
strictions on the transmission of
race information and penalties for
bookies most numerous.
Both houses have received a se-
rfes of 11 bills to clamp down on
gambling in particular. One of these,
to make all public officials swear
annually to their net worth to catch
the crooks, has been killed in com-
mittee. Others are being tinkered
to meet honds objections, as when
hotel men protested their licenses
could be cancelled if four of their
guests got caught in a poker game
for which the hotel was not re-
sponsible.. Others prohibiting tele-
vision and radio' broadcasts of
races until the day's program is
ended, and asking congress to pre-
vent interstate transmission of re-

investigating group set to spice up
the remainder of this session.
In addition, the senate has begun

tois had dabbled in legislative
The Republican Pinellas delega-
tion and former Speaker Perry Mur-

WHAT ABOUT MacARTHUR?
JBy JUNE'E. SMITH (Junior Class)
What do you think of President Truman's ac-
tion against General MacArthur? Here are some
points yon may run through your brain when
thinking of the matter:
During the Civil War, President Jefferson Da-
vis of the Confederacy removed General Johns-
ton from command of the Southern troops near
Atlanta. President Davis thought .that Johnston
,was not doing*a good job-but he happened to
be doing a wonderful job, considering the ma-
terial with which he had to work. President Da-
vis-put Hooker in command, and due to this fact
the South lost a very important battle.
Maybe this will turn out like it did during the
Civil War; maybe it won't.
On the other hand, if President Truman had
left M ac-Arthur in office he may have carried out
)is suggestion that we start fighting in China
with the help of the Nationalist Chinese. This
would definitely begin World War III. That we
certainly don't want. The reason American and
United Nations troops are in Korea now is to
hJelp keep us frormr another global war. We all
want peace; if we start fighting in China, we
definitely .won't have peace.
-Maybe MacArthur's removal was for the best
-we don't 'know yet.
-General Ridgeway has so far proved to be a
good and efficient general. Surely he will con-
tinue to do so as commander of the U. N. troops.
What will become of Japan without MacAr-
thuri to guide her? The Japanese thought of Gen-
eral MacArthur as a friend and adviser and had
great respect for him. MacArthur helped begin
a democratic government. He stayed in Japan
these years since the end of World War II in or-
der to shape it after the country for which he
has served so long. He didn't want to beat de-
mocracy into their heads; he wanted to lead them
-so that they would really believe in their gov-
ernment. Japan may be an example for some
other eastern. country-we hope so. Japan is
better off than she has been in many years. Can
Ridgeway or anyone else carry on the work that
MacArthuf has begun? This .is a little doubtful
right now, but maybe someone can. After all,
General MacArthur is getting rather old.
The best thing we can do is to hope that the
right thing has been done and to pray for the
leaders of the nations of the earth as they meet
from time to time to discuss world peace.
Every successful man gets there through luck.
All he has to do is to cultivate a pleasing per-
sonality, sow seeds of kindness and good cheer
wherever he goes, do his work better than the
"unlucky" man, and render his best service, re-
gardless of salary. Luck does the rest!

tor can get along with an independent press." CHECK TIMING
The Russian propagandists have once more
been boasting ,of the superiority of their eco-
nomic system. The illustration in this case has
been commodity prices. In, the U. S. S. R., where
the government has the whole say, the prices of
certain goods were recently reduced. In other
countries-notably the United States-prices -have
been rising. Therefore,. say the propagandists,
the Russian worker is getting all the best of it..
The validity of this may be judged from the
following figures: The average Soviet worker
earns somewhat less than $40 a week for 48 hours-
of work. After the new price reductions he must
pay about $2.00 a pound for beef, almost $4.00
a pound for butter, 60 cents for a quart of milk,
and similarly for other foods. 'A single-breasted
wool suit, whose price was not cut, will cost him
almost $300, and a pair of shoes $85. Little won-
der that the Moscow censors restricted correspen-
dents there to cabling the percentages by which
prices were cut rather than the new reduced
In Russia the state runs all the factories, and
owns or controls all the farms. It decides what
will be produced, of what quality, and how much
the price will be. Competition does not exist on
the production level. And, of equal importance,
competition does not exist on the retail level
either. Consumers must patronize designated
state stores, and pay a designated price for a
designated ration. And Russia has made it a
policy to charge exorbitant retail prices in order
to drain off consumer income.
Let's compare'that with Port St. Joe, for in-
stance, since we know the situation here, where
all kinds anrd sizes of stores are competing vig-
orously for trade-and, inflation or no inflation,
are doing their best to undersell the other fellow.
- And it's the same way all over the United States.
That is one big reason why our living standards

Progress On Constitution
By JIMMY PHILYAW
You have probably observed that
a good deal of progress has been
made on Constitution Park. The
beautiful grass and shrubs, and the
new walk have added very much to
the beautification of the park. The
people doing this work deserve a
good deal of credit. This park dates
back to an important historical
event for Florida-the framing of
the first constitution which, if
properly advertised, would draw
many tourists to our city.
Also in-the line of historical land-
.marks of St. Joe is the old grave-
yard, located near Oak Grove. I
personally encountered a tourist
from Ohio who was looking for the
graveyard. He was very excited un-
til he saw the condition of some of
the graves. He took many pictures
and found that some of the graves
dated back to 1811.
If properly developed, this grave-
yard would be a .great attraction
for tourists, and all the people here
would benefit financially from this

Bill Giving Bay
Gulf County's Neighbor Would Like
To Withdraw From Present
Representative Grady Courtney of
Bay county lost his fight to have
his county designated as a separate
district with its own senator. He
would have Bay withdraw from the
present 25th district, which is made
up of Bay, Gulf, Washington and
Courtney tried to write Bay in
for a new district on a proposed
constitutional amendment passed
by the house giving Monroe county
a state senator of its own. If the
senate approves the bill it will ap-
pear on the general election ballot
for approval or rejection by voters
of the state.
A similar amendment to give Bay
and Monroe counties each a sena-
tor was rejected by the voters in
the 1948 general election. Backers
of the Monroe proposal blamed in-
clusion of the West Florida district
proposal for the defeat.
Courtney, who opposed the pres-
ent bill, said unless the 25th dis-
trict is split at the same time South
Florida gets a new senator, the
state will be torn again with sec-
tionalism that always has made any
effort to shuffle senatorial districts
a bitter matter. -

SAINTS TAKE NAVY
(Continued from page 1)
runs over on four hits and three
The Saints made another in the
last of the sixth when Bennie Burke
singled with two out and came
home on a nifty double to the cen-
terfield fence by Godfrey.
Navy, not to be outdone, marked
up two more in the seventh on a
walk passed out by Clyde Parker,
Saint moundsman, a hit, two wild
throws to first by Shortstop White-
head and a long fly to center, the
runner at third coming in after the
. The "lucky seventh" found the
Saints trailing 8-3, but things be-
gan to look up when Crawford, the
navy hurler, issued walks to Tom
Mitchell and Craig, Walters was
safe when the shortstop couldn't
make up his mind where to make
the play and Whitehead walked to
shove Mitchell across the plate.
Deomes Aplin, who had taken over
the catcher's mitt from Murdock,
lined one down the third base line
which tlhe third baseman dodged in
a hurry, the ball going to the fence
and allowing Craig, Walters and
Whitehead to score.
Leonard Belin, who had merely
been coaching up to this time, de-
cided to get in the game and pro-
ceeded to hit a long one to the left-
field fence for two bags, sending
Aplin scurrying home. Burke then
took three bases on a Texas leaguer
and a couple of errors, allowing Be-
lin to score. Godfrey singled thru
short to score Burke, Davis singled,
sending Godfrey to third, from
whence he came home on, a wild
pitch. Mitchell fouled out and Craig
fanned for the first two outs. Wal-
ters.walked and stole second, and
Whitehead singled to right to send
Davis and Walters across the plate.
Aplin ended the 10-run merry-go-
round by popping out to short.
Navy counted twvo more in the
eight on two hits off Bill Fleming,
who had relieved Parker on the
mound, two walks and an error.
Final score of the game came in
the ninth by Navy after Fleming
walked the first three men and was
relieved by Bucky Walters, who is-
sued a walk to the first man facing
him to walk in the player at third.
Parker showed up good on the
mound for five innings, but began
to weaken in the sixth, and was
relieved in the eighth by Fleming
Godfrey had a perfect day at the
plates garnering six bingles in six
times at bat.
