Saints Lose To
In 10 Innings
Little League Teams Are
Picked n Meeting Mon.
The Port St. Joe Saints were
defeated by Apalachicola this past
Sunday by a score of 4-3 in a game
that required an extra inning to
decide the outcome.
The Saints trailed the visitors up
to the bottom half of the seventh
inning when they tied up the game.
Manager Bascom Hamm pitched
the first five innings and Scott
relieved him to go the route. Ben-
nie Hudson played as always, hav-
ing complete control behind the
plate. Apalachicola used three pit-
chers in order to muster their win,
Keith started and was relieved by
Thompson who was relieved by
Bloodsworth. Wagoner was the re-
Bill Rich rendered the final word
on the basis with W. J. Herring
performing with a very keen eye
behind the plate.
A large turn-out of local fans
who witnessed the game went home
well satisfied. The support of the
fans made the home team feel
good and they played very hard to
please the crowd. There is a great
difference when there is a nice
crowd to view the game than when
the grandstand is empty.
ISeason tickets are now on sale
and may be obtained by contacting
any member of the Saints.

NO SOLUTION, JUST TALK
A one-tracked candidate for Governor from
Tampa is storming around the state shouting
that he's the only one who can stop desergega-
tion in Florida.
So far he hasn't told us exactly what he,
would do to keep segregation if he were Gov-
Now he asks why Governor Collins hasn't
stopped the opening of a municipal swimming
beach at St. Petersburg to Negroes.
The fact is that the spa hasn't been'opened
to Negroes. The matter is still in the courts.
There has been no breach of the peace, nor any
violation of State segregation laws, which would
justify the, Governor in invoking his. extreme
authority to keep the peace in a municipality.
It is appropriate to ask this vote-seeker:
"Just exactly what would you do, right
now, to keep segregation in Florida if you
were governor?" t '
News reporters asked him that recently in
Tallahassee. He replied he would call a special'
session of the Legislature to adopt an interpo-.
When they inquired how this would ac-
complish anything, he replied only that "I know
it will work."
They pointedly asked him to explain why
the interposition movement, which originated
in Virginia has failed to keep 58 Negroes out
of the University of Virginia. He said only "I
can't answer that. I don't know their prob-
To inquiries for his position on such other
issues as taxation, constitutional revision, reap-
portionment, consolidation of tax collecting agen-
cies, this candidate offered only non-committal
replies or an accusation that the press was hos-i
tile in asking him how he stands.
If, Sumter Lowry has a sure-fire plan for
stopping desergegation, the whole South would
like to hear it.
But he apparently is tied only to the doc-
trine of interposition which even the Attorney
General of Virginia concedes has no legal sta-
tus, and is nothing more than a protest.
If he has nothing better than that to offer
on the issue of segregation, and nothing at all
to offer on the other issues, the voters would do
well to listen no further to his ratings.
COLLINS FOR SEGREGATION
Recently the people heard Gov. Collins
once again declare himself for segregated
Here is what he said:
"I want to make-perfectly clear although
I am sure the people of Florida understand my
position -- what my position is now and what
it has always been on this issue.
"Let me repeat, as I have said many times
over the years, that I believe deeply in my
heart in the maintenance of our traditions and
customs of segregation in the South and in'
Florida and all the powers and force of the
office of governor have been used and will be
used to maintain segregation."
How can you talk any plainer?
The Star recalls that while segregation did
not rear 'its ugly head in the Collins-Johns cam-
paign, LeRoy Collins took his stand then some
two years ago (March 30, 1954) on the issue.
On the front page of The Orlando Sentinel
the next day, after he spoke before 150 support-
ers, in a story written by Ben Field, Collins said
"That is a question (segregation) that only
the Supreme Court can answer, and what that
decision will be nobody knows. But so far as

LET'S TALK TORQUE! In plain language,
torque is "twist." It's the force that
makes the wheels go 'round.
So it follows .-. the more torque your
engine has, the more go power your car has

TO HANDLE HIGHER TORQUE!
Oldsmobile has the chassis to take Rocket
torque ... a skillfully engineered Olds-
mobile chassis with an extra-sturdy, dynanmi
call balanced drive shaft. and an extra.
rigid frame that resists twisting and weaving.
What's more, the Rocket's got horsepower
- to spare!* And with Oldsmobile, it's high
usable horsepower a by-product of
engine design aimed straight at the wheels
- design that translates horsepower into ter-
rific torque at normal engine rpm's.
TOP TORQUE MEANS
The result is higher torque silken, re-

ator ever so gently you "go". and
we do mean "GO"! You thrill to smoother,
swifter bursts of power for everyday use -
spectacular performance, when you need it

Any way you look at it, you can't top the
