The Sharks meet the Walton
Braves. from De Funiak Springs-at
the Centennial Field tonight at 8
The Sharks were originally sche-
duled to meet.Carrabelle in their
season opener. Carrabelle was un-
able to field a team for the.season
and had to drop from the confer-
ence. Coach Craig then secured the
game from Walton, who the Sharks
were scheduled to meet in the mid-
dle of the season.
According to observers, the lo-
cal eleven will get a chance to
test their mettle the first game
of the season instead of working
gradually into the tough games.
Coach Craig stated to the Star
that all of his regular first-string

NEWS OR EDITORIAL?
Monday night we were accused of running
a front page editorial in favor of the incumbent
Mayor, Jake Belin. Such was not the case. We
were not maliciously accused and as far as we
know there were no hard feelings on the part
of the accuser and certainly there is none on
We want to explain here and now, our defi-
nition of. an editorial. An editorial, as we run
one, is either on the editorial page or has the
heading "Editorial" over any article intended
as such. The article in question was merely a
news story reporting some long awaited news
to an interested public. Had we not carried the
story, .some other paper would and we would
be just "copying" the story had we waited un-
til after election to print it. We will say that
we are definitely proud of Mayor Belin and the
Commission for their work in securing a usable
good water system for the city. We will make
no bones about that.
.We want to go on to say that this.newspa-
per will never openly support and endorse any
candidate for public office unless we feel that
his opponent is out only to monopolize off a
public office and is seeking to hoodwink the
voters in some such way.
We want to say further that any portions
of sentences or. paragraphs anywhere in The
Star that are in quotation marks are not our
quotations. We are merely quoting others.
We will say we had our favorite for the past

fellow editors twixtt here and there
on both highways. Enroute to Tal-
lahassee we stopped at Blounts-
town and met and had a little chat
with Wallace Findlay, editor and
chief bottle-washer of the County
Record there in Blountstown. We
cried on each others shoulder con-
cerning the woes, trials and tribu-
lations of the weekly newspaper
publishing business and talked a
little shop and just had a regular
gab-fest. Wallace is a genial fel-
low and even bought us.a Coke.
On the way back from Talla-
hassee we came back by the Apa-
lachicola way to meet a fellow we
have had a hankering to meet ever
since we read his column for the
first time in his rag by the name
of the Wakulla County News, a
chap by the name of Joe Malpas.
Speak about your characters, Joe
is a character and a heck of a nice
guy along with his being a charac-
ter. We also got a free Coke out
While we were talking to Joe he
came up with an idea and said,
"Say, fellow crazy-man, what do
you think of the idea of plugging
for -the name of 'the silver coast'
for this section of the Florida bea-
ches". We caught on right quick
and agreed vehemently with the
idea. "After all", sez Joe, "there's

columns of this newspaper.
If this newspaper is ever "for" or "against"
anybody or anything, no one will have to read
between the lines to find it out.
The sweeping victory of Chancellor Konrad
Adenauer in West Germany, in spite of the mostI
heroic efforts of the Communists to disrupt the
election, appears to have saved her traditional
enemy France, as well as reviving the dying
hopes of iNATO.
Prior to the German election, all signs in
France pointed to the failure of the tough Laniel
Government and a general collapse of the coun-
try. But vith Adenauer. the champion of West
European solidarity. the winner, Frenchmen
apparently decided they'd better quit fighting
each other and get strong too and Premier
Laniel was just the guy to do the job. In a re-
cent speech, in fact, he declared, T!.,- time has
come to bury the hatchet with Germany."
Perhaps we're over-optimistic. But what
else c.i, you' think when the news from Paris
is that the Ministry of Finance is cracking down

such a thing before, are. now paying taxes' .

Interviewed in Seoul, Korea, Senate Majdrity
Leader William F. Knowland was asked if he
would be willing to swap a seat in the UN for
Red China for a unified Korea.
Senator Knowland's answer was a prompt
and decisive "I would not".
The fact that the Senator gave this answer
after five days in Korea, in which he has been
talking to President Rhee-who says the North
Koreans'are prisoners of the Chinese-and must
have talked to US officers who have given cor-
respondents horrible details of.North Korean
slavery under the Red Chinese, is significant.

The relation of per-capita in-
come in Florida to that of the na-
tion is brought out in this weak's
business review of the State Cham-
ber's research and industrial divi-
sion. In 1929 Floridians earned 71
per cent as much as. the average
for the nation. This Florida percen-
tage rose to 81 in 1940 and to 87
in 1944 and 1945. In 1951 it stood
at 81 per cent and last year at 80
per cent of the national average.
The changes since 1945 in this
Florida proportion are doubtless
accounted for by Florida's p'opula-
tion make-tp. Numbers of persons
in the State under 21 and over 65
years of age have been increasing
at a greater rate than the 21 to 65
age group and it is in this last
