Indians Lose To St.

Joe By 6-3 Count

Locals Top Graceville In Make-Up
Game Played Monday Night;
Bonifay Here Sunday

In the second game of the West
Florida Baseball League here Sun-
day with the Chattahoochee In-
dians, the St. Joe Saints emerged
victorious of the long end of a 6-3
count.
The game scheduled for Thurs-
day night of :last week at Chatta-
hoochee was rained out and will be
made up at a later date.
With Ed McCrary starting on the
mound for St. Joe and Hartman
hurling for ,the visitors, the game
stood 0-0 for the first two innings,
but in the third the Saints scored
two runs when, with two out, Craig
'got on by- a fluke and Belin fol-
lowed with a homer over the left
field fence. .
Two more were chalked up in the
fourth by the Saints when Maxwell
was walked, Godfrey sacrificed, Mc-
Crary took two bags on a Texas
leaguer, sending Maxwell across the
plate, and Bennie Burke snagged a
single to bring in McCrary.
In the first frame, Belin was de-
liberately walked, apparently much
against the wishes of the pitcher,
but coming up in the third, nobody
on base, he socked another, long
one over the fence, making the
count 5-0.
The Indians rallied in the first of
the sixth and made three runs on.
two singles, and two two-base hit','
but failed to score during the rest
of the game when Jim Schantel re-
lieved McCrary on the mound in
the seventh.
Final score of the game was made

Ceiling Prices On

Beef Now Effective

Cost May Vary Slightly In Relation
To Sales Volume of Stores
and Other Factors

New dollar and cent ceiling prices
on beef went into effect Monday of
this week, and must be posted in all
retail markets by June 4, according
to the Jacksonville office of the Of-
fice of Price Stabilization.
The ceiling prices vary slightly
in relation to the sales volume of
the store and other factors, so each
retailer will display only those ceil-
ing prices 'applicable 'to his store
group.
The Jacksonville OPS serves 45
counties in noith and central Flor-
ida and the beef regulations define
three zones;, for pricing purposes,
in this area.
Gulf county is in the 13-S zone,
along with Gadsden, Franklin, Lib-
erty, Jackson, Calhoun, Washing-
ton, Holmes, Bay, Walton, Santa
Rosa, Okaloosa and Escambia.

Reshuffle Counties of

State To Provide New

Congressional Districts

District Three Largest In Area and
District Four Largest In
Population

A bill reshuffling Florida's 67
counties into eight congressional
districts instead of six, cleared the
legislature Tuesday and was sent
to Governor Warren. The two new
districts were created in accord-
ance with the 1950 census, which
gives the state two additional con-
gressmen.
District Three, in which Gulf
county lies and from which Bob
Sikes is the congressman, with 16
counties, covers the greatest terri-
tory. Largest district on a popula-
tion basis is the Fourth, which is
made up of Monroe and Dade coun-
ties, having a combined citizenry of
525,041.
Following are the eight districts
as they will be constituted when the
bill becomes law:
District 1-Pasco, Pinellas, Her-
nando and Hillsborough (population
of 436,365).
District 2-Clay and Duval coun-
ties (population of 318,352).
District 3-Gulf, Bay, Franklin,
Calhoun, Escambia, Jackson, Gads-
deni, Holmes, Jefferson, Leon, Lib-
erty, Santa Rosa, Wakulla, Oka-
loosa, Walton and Washington (pop-
ulation of 404,824).

Buzzett's Drug Store Will
Open Officially Saturday

Gannon Buzzett, who took ovei
the operation of Miller's Drug Store
on March 10 has changed the 'name
of the establishment to Buzzett's
Drug Store, and in honor of his of-
ficial opening under the new name
tomorrow, is inviting everyone to
drop in and get acquainted (natur-
ally, you might buy something at
the same time).
Buzzy is offering free gifts to the
grown-ups, while they last, free ice
cream to the kiddies, and a coke
for everybody.
One thing about the new name,
it -gives The Star a chance to use
the "Z's" in our type cases, which
very seldom get inked up. Only use
for them previously was for Zig
and Zag-and just who would use
Zig and Zag in an advertisement?

St. Joe May Get

,Gas or May Not

Atlantic Gulf Unable To Provide
Sufficient Committments; An-
other Concern May Come In

Whether or not this section of
Florida will get natural gas
seems to be an on-again, off-again
affair at the hearings being held in
Washington before the power com-
mission.
The Atlantic Gulf Gas Corpora-
tion, which has been begging to put
in lines to serve a number of south-
ern states, has stated that it is un-
able to go ahead with its projected
pipeline due to the fact it did not
have a sufficient number of con-
tracts to warrant the outlay.

making an effort to substitute the
Savannah Gas Company for Atlan-

POLITICIANS FIGHT PRESS
When newspapers criticize public officehold-
ers, it is natural for the officeholders to fight
back. The ordinary course of such officials is to
make public statements denying charges and giv-
ing evidence of their lack of foundation, if they
can.
When officeholders cannot successfully refute.
charges, they resort to two courses. One is to try
to gag the press by suppression of information
or by enacting legislation trying to control news-
papers through taxation or hampering require-
ments. The other is to try to smear the offending
newspaper by charging ulterior motives.
Rep. S. D. Saunders of Clay county has gone
to the last extreme by charging association of
millionaire owners of the Tampa Tribune with
Communists or persons known to be sympa-
thetic with Communists. Such a charge is ri-
diculous on its face and is merely designed to
discount in the public mind the many things the

STARDUST and

MOONSHINE

Ah spring is here at last!
And, as usual, we have an
acute attack of spring fever .
that lazy, listless feeling that at-
tacks most of us during the first
warm days it's quite a com-
mon ailment that nothing in the
way of medicine can cure .
Best medicine, in our opinion, is to
get out in a boat somewhere, tie up
next the bank. in the shade of an
overhanging tree, dunk a worm,
lean back and hope that the fish
won't bite and disturb your rest.
S. Trouble is, seems everybody
is able to do that but us. We've got
to stick around and get out this
rag, not to mention doing rush jobs
for people who discover they are
all out ;of letterheads, statements,
envelopes, or what have you.
This innocuous disease can. at-
tack people of all ages and occupa-
tions with varying degrees of se-
verity. Instructors in the St.
Joe schools, who very likely have
also become stricken, tell us that
it attacks students faced with ex-
tra study for end-term exams .
Symptoms include extreme leth-
argy, a revulsion for routine duties
and great difficulty in concentrat-
ing-particularly if there is a view
from a window encompassing flow-
ers, trees, shrubbery, or even beau-
tiful green grass.
However, it has been discovered,
after lengthy research, that these
symptoms are only temporary, and
eventually the victim recovers. In
some cases, however, it is a life-
long affliction sometimes re-
ferred to as "pure laziness."

Somebody asked us the other day
how come we're always smiling,
never seem to have a care in the
world? Well, to tell you the
truth, we never worry about any-
thing, being of the opinion that
what is going to happen is going to
happen, and there isn't a thing we
can do about it. We're 51 and
life, if you may notice, has left few
marks on us, outside of our gray
hair and our missing leg just

What Happened Last Week In Tallahassee \
By J. KENNETH BALLINGER '


The Florida legislature is bring-
ing two appropriations bills closer
together this week, the senate ver-
sion of $278,000,000 and the house
version of about $20,000,000 less.
Still. pending is the question of
where--or whether-the state will
get new income if the senate "real-
istic" spending bill is passed. These
appropriations cover state expense
for the next two years.
The house adopted a tight-fisted
attitude toward state spending, fi-
nally produced a $N44,000,000 bill to
cover state expense for the coming
two years. This has been increased
in a house revolt by upping the
school and welfare appropriations,
and by making lesser changes, in a
free-swinging conflict between the
pinch-penny group and the free-
spenders.
Held in the house finance and
taxation commitete is an amended
version of the 3% sales tax, al-
ready passed by the senate and
calculated to yield $17,500,000 a
year.
Leaders of the house hope to end
this session without imposing new
taxes. The next two weeks is ex-
pected to see a battle between
those trying to hold the line and
the group wanting more money for
schools, old folks and state agen-
cies.


Crime In Forefront
Crime again is getting its inning,
although the Haley committee in-
vestigating corruption for the house
has called a temporary truce.
The senate has taken up a series
of bills providing, among other
things, mandatory prison sentences
for bookmakers, suspension of ho-
tel and beverage licenses where
gambling is discovered, outlawing
of tipsheets and advance informa-
tion printed by newspapers on rac-
ing, wire tapping to trap bookies,
and opening the racing commission
records to the public.
Utilities To Pay for Regulation
A second money-producing bill
has cleared the senate, this one to
produce $200,000 a year from public
utilities to help pay for new regula-
tion duties of the state over elec-
tric and gas companies.
Spokesmen for railroads, tele-
phone companies, bus and truck
companies and electric companies
said the added taxes would force
them to increase their charges to
the public.
Newspaper 'Gag' Bill Killed
The Burton newspaper "gag" bill
has been killed by a house commit-
tee. The bill would have required
all newspapers to make space avail-
able for answers from public offi-
cials and others they criticized.


The bill came to Tallahassee se-
cretly, and is similar to one intro-
duced under Ku Klux Klan auspices
in the Georgia legislature. It is one
of a lengthy list of anti-free press-
bills introduced at this session of
the legislature, some of which are
on the calendar of the house or
senate, but none of which have
cleared either body.
State Agencies Under Attack
Four major.state agencies are un-
der legislative attack, and may oc-
cupy much of the lawmakers' time
as the session draws to a close.
The state beverage department is
being investigated by a senate com-
mittee, with influence selling and
political tampering the chief charge.
The state milk commission is the
subject of a bill finally given a fa-
vorable committee report, to allow
schools, hospitals and the state cus-
todial institutions to buy milk at
competitive instead of fixed prices,
require distributors to sell for one"
cent less in stores than by delivery.
The state racing commission has
been on the fire before the Haley
committee, and is the subject of
bills to clip its authority over ex-
pense money and records.
The game and fresh water fish
commission, beset by internal grip-
ings, has been battered back and
forth by senate and house all ses-
sion, may have its income cut in
half by reducing resident fishing
and hunting licenses.
No More Hoods Or Masks
Governor Warren has signed into
law a bill to prohibit the wearing


of masks or hoods by secret orders
in public, and to stop the burning
of crosses and other threatening
moves. It is aimed at the Ku Klux
Klan, and passed both .houses al-
most without opposition.

Attends Ball Game
Mrs. Alma Jones of Wewahitchka
attended the Chattahoochee-Port St.
Joe baseball game here Sunday.

Mosquitoes Are

Like Humans, Only

The Female Bites

Writer Feels Insects Should
Be Put To Work for
Benefit of Man


By RUSSELL KAY
I've been called on to annoy a lot
of different groups with so-called
talks on a variety of subjects, -but
recently I think I drew the prize
assignment. My friend Samuel A.
Harper, president of the Florida
Anti-Mosquito Association, asked me
to talk to his group on the subject
of "Mosquitoes and How To Deal
With Them."
Now, I am just about as well-
versed on the subject of entomol-
ogy as a polar bear would be on the
.subject of sunstroke. Anyhow, I let
him talk me into it. Just to get in
the mood, I went out on a salt
marsh and communed with the
pests and, while my talk may never
appear as a textbook, here are a
few of my observations:
Mosquitoes are like humans in
one respect-only the females bite.
Now I've never been much of a
lady's man, but there's one thing I
do know-if there is a fool mos-
quito within ten miles of me, it is
sure to be a female.
I have always felt that the ento-
mologists and bug men ought to be,
able to figure out some way to put
mosquitoes to work as human bene-
factors instead of just lettin' 'em
run hog-wild and annoy people.
With the blood banks all scream-
ing for donors, why can't they de-
velop a flock of trained mosquitoes
that would go out and gather blood
just like the bees gather honey?
With a little experimenting and re-
search, the bug men ought to be
able to develop a new strain that
could do the job. They could at-
tempt to breed mosquitoes that
would have a greater flying range
and greater carrying capacity.
Then they ought to be able to
figure out a way to have them in-
ject novocaine witll their bite in-
stead of saline, so that the donors
would feel no pain or annoyance.
They might even develop a way of
silencing the buzz. Think what a
blessing it would be to know that
,our hospitals, by maintaining hives
of such mosquitoes, would never
have to worry about blood, for they
would always be assured of an
ample supply.
I don't know how many different
kinds of mosquito repellants there
are on the market, but I think I
have tried most all of them, and so
far I haven't found one that will
even annoy a determined insect. I
remember one time a fellow, told
me that if I would eat plenty of
onions and garlic the mosquitoes
would leave me alone. It was a par-
ticularly bad season for the pests
and I took him up on it and went
on a diet of onions and garlic for a
week or more. Well, it didn't keep
the mosquitoes away, but it did
keep everybody else out of range.
I smelled like a cross between an
Italian restaurant and an East Side
delicatessen.
Then we have a lot of blind mos-
quitoes in this state. The entomolo-
gists tell us that we don't have to
worry about them because they
don't bite. Well, maybe they don't
bite, but, brother, they sure will
trample you to death! I remember
getting' messed up with a flock of
'em over in Brevard county one
time. I was glad I only had one
nose, two eyes, two ears and a
mouth. I don't know whether you
have ever tried to' breathe with
both your nose' and mouth packed
with blind mosquitoes or not, but
I'm telling you it is quite a trick-
you ought to try it some time.
But all kidding aside, I was
really honored to be selected as the
speaker for the Anti-Mosquito As-
sociation banquet for, as a newspa-
per man, I know what a swell job
these folks are doing in helping to


rid this state'of the dangerous and
annoying insects.
They are making real progress in
*their work, and I expect to see the
day when most of Florida will be
free of mosquitoes, sand flies and
other troublesome pests. They need
more funds to finish the job, and
this is one investment that will pay
handsome dividends. More power
to them, and the sooner they kill
off all'.the mosquitoes and spray
themselves out of a job the better
I'll like it.

Number of Farms In

Gulf County Shows

Decrease In 1950

Figures Released By Department of
Commerce Shows Decline
Over Entire State

The number of farms in Gulf
county last year was less than in
1945, according to information re-
ceived from the U. S. Department
of Commerce in Atlanta, Ga.
An analysis of,the 1950 census of
agriculture conducted by the com-
merce department's bureau of the
census, shows that the number of
farms in the county in 1950 was 133,
compared with 314 in 1945.
Last year, the census bureau in
taking the census of agriculture
along with the census of population
and housing, defined a farm as land
of three or more acres on which
agricultural products, exclusive of
home gardens, valued at $150 or
more were produced, or land of
less than .three acres on which the
value of products sold amounted to
$150 or more. In 1945 the definition
was land on which products valued
at $250 or more were produced, with
no reference to home gardening or
products sold.

Spies Are Suckers,
States FBI Agent

Guest Speaker At Recent District
Legion Meeting Delivers
Interesting Talk

(Ed. Note: This was written April
5 but was crowded out of the paper
at that time. We've just now run
across it.)
Arresting spies is not as im-
portant as knowing who they are
and controlling-them, John K. Mum-
ford of Mobile, Ala., FBI agent, told
Legionnaires at the annual meeting
of the Second District, American
Legion, Department of Florida con-
ference Sunday at Wewahitchka.
When you arrest him you break
a link in a chain of espionage
agents, said Mumford. The chance
to capture and control the whole
spy ring is lessened. Official Ger-
man records after the end of World
War II convinced the FBI that they
had every German agent in the U.
S. either in jail or under control
during the war. The records over
here matched those of the Germans.
FBI agents even went to Europe
during the war soliciting German
spies, offering them big money to
come to the United States. The
FBI agent, posing as a Nazi, knew
that when Germans didn't want to
send a spy to a particular area in
this country that they already had
- some there. This was one of many
ways the FBI knew where to hunt
for spies and to turn the tables on
them when they came over.
German spies also became goats,
offering false information to their
country, explained the speaker.
Mumford also told his listeners
that the FBI desperately needs ap-
proximately 4000 office clerks to
keep up with the voluminous rec-
ords of the bureau, so that agents
can be free to work on the outside,
and the bureau is seeking women
to fill these jobs. To be eligible,
women must 'be high school gradu-
.ktes between: the .ages of 18 -anA4S5.
Starting salaries begin at about
$2,450 a year, for a six-day week.

'SITTING DUCKS'

(Continued from page 1)
to tell the people what to do and
have people organized to exert a
leavening force and hold things to-
gether," he continued. He told the
legislators this will take a volun-
teer defense corps of some 15,000,-
000 to 20,000,000 workers.
He added that in event of an air
raid, commercial radio stations will
have to go off the air to avoid giv-
ing enemy airplanes clues as to the
locations of cities. Because of this,
civilians will not be able to have
instructions broadcast to them.
Caldwell said that Florida is an
unlikely target for air raids, but
that its coastal cities are "sitting
ducks" for submarine attack, and
the whole state is a "perfect tar-
get" for bioloigcal warfare against
humans, animals and plants. He
reported Russia "is working now
on improvement of already deadly
biological warfare chemicals."
Florida's main role in event of
attack on the United States, how-
ever, would probably be to give aid
to northern cities, he said.
(Port St. Joe, with its huge pa-
per mill, oil storage and pipeline
facilities, could easily be one of the
"sitting ducks" for enemy subma-
rines.)

Sweet Peppers Rich
in Vitamins


Green Peppers Turn Red or Orange
As They Ripen.
A few plants of sweet peppers, set
out in the garden after danger of
frost is over, will give big returns
for the space they occupy. They
are among the richest of vegeta-
bles in vitamins A and C and can
be served raw in salads and cooked
in many appetizing ways.
Early varieties can be grown
from seed sown outdoors, after the
ground warms up, but it is better
to start plants indoors or buy them
in the market. The plants are very
tender, and should not be set out-
doors until it is safe for tomatoes,
Space the plants 18 inches aparl
in the row and give them. frequent
cultivation. They like a rich, heavy
soil, but thrive in lighter soils il
given plenty of water. The pepper
is one plant which likes a bath now
and then; it can be washed off with
the hose and will thrive the better
for it.
They grow rapidly and once the3
begin to bear they continue to pro.
duce fruit until frost kills the plants
in the fall. A dozen plants will usu-
ally be sufficient for a family ol
four. They have a long season dur-
ing which they are in good condi.
tion; the color changes from green
to red and the vitamin A contend
increases with this change. The
red peppers are highly decorative,
and there are also attractive orange
varieties.
The only insect likely to attach
peppers is a flea beetle, which can
be discouraged-by spraying or dust-
ing with nicotine or D.D.T. There
are no diseases likely to bother.
Hot peppers are seldom grown in
gardens, but if you wish to try them
the same general cultural methods
will suffice.

CEILING PRICES
(Continued from page 1)

Ceiling prices to be posted will
vary as to grade of the meat,

selves with the five grade mark-
