AUmion Barbecue Dinner Draws Large Labor Day Crowd;

ETAOIN SHRDLU Games, Contests and Speeches Entertain About 3,500


If tli-re's anytlnri l.rder it ran
having a holiday on Monday i an,
getting ha.ck to work 1.11 Tu.dt...
I diioJh'. I'now W lh t it iL Tlli .t's :-'
bard-er than going to work Mondlay
aif't-i [li. day off Sun -day.

We weren't the only one who
bit the so-called "labor paper"
advertising last week. Upon look-
ing at the paper, half of the mer-
chants in Port St. Joe were vic-
tims. They came in at an oppor-
tune time, just when the Labor
SUnions were putting on the dog
here, for the merchants to offer
'heir salutations to them on La-
bor Day. And they don't even
get the paper.
Another little item to chalk up
to experience.

Regardli-s. of who is elected in
the coming city election Tuesday,
we uniild I'be an advocate of a four
year term for CLy officials. The
two ye-ar ti':ri just long enough
for a man LO ect used to the riga-
inarc'l, that tH1- Commission must
gu throuuhl lu uopiirate and then his
term is up.
,'it (oarse all these channels are
litut up a;i safeguards to the public,
but we would .zyv that it would be
pretty tard for ilie public to define
it tlih Ia hlas bl,-e broken by these
officials d n- ti, iiieir complexity.
ThingIs thai the average person
would termin a ni-re routine have
to be ldon- just so by the law mak-
ers. Everylhiiug bought has to be
let out uin bid.. when the process
of getting and lertting bids some-
tiLnmes ,',s a' uuch as the work
to be done or the object to be
bought. It took a. raft of lawyers
to draw up i -y -;tem and it must
be for tih better. but I declare it
is a pain to get uied to.

We went fishing out in the bay:
Monday morning with some
,rends and relatives.
Tiny Jones and Bill Hammock
took us out on Watson Smith's
boat.
Whether you get any fish or
not, the antics of Tiny will make
the trip interesting.
We left port at 6:00 a.m. sharp
and went straight across to the
point to try some red fishing. An
early start would put us there
before anyone else-we thought.
When we got there, Bob King,
George Wimberly, Jr., Hubert
Richards and Coach Craig had
already driven to Money Bayou
and around the point on a jeep
and were up to their armpits out
in the water fishing. Wonder what
time they left home?

We made the rounds of the buoys
trolling and came back to the point
Our doughty fishermen were still
at it.
A-bout 100 yards or fess from
them a herd of devil fish-large
ones-were playing and feeding.
Underneath each of the devil fish
a small school of sharks were swim-
ming. Tiny Jones harpooned one of
the huge fish and he snapped the
tow rope like a twine string. P
And i.lill our doughty fishermen
were out in the water fishing de-
spite the devil fish and sharks
swititmiig around in their fishing

We-didn't catch too many fish,
but we had a whale of a good time
and got back to -the barbecue just
in lime to be left out.
All in all, Labor Day was a good
day. f

Saints Trip Apalachicola Monday To

Win Gulf Coast League Play-off


0 By BOB ELLZEY
Lh Monday afternoon the St. Joe
Saints treated the visitors from
r Apalachicola in a nice neighborly
r- manner by not scoring until the
)f bottom half of the e-iLhth inning
t But they also kept the Oystermen
d from scoring the same length ol
d time. Manager Bascom Hamm
e pitching with complete control of
g the ball at all times showed the vis-
itors some fancy throwing. 01
n course, he was backed up by some
h excellent infield defense and the
t outfield players brought into the
d basket what balls the visitors were
d able to send out there.
t The spectators saw a very fine
f ball game and not a one left until
. the final out in the top half of the
ninth inning. K. Bloodworth, the
Oysterman pitcher showed he would
be a very fine pitcher in the years
ahead. The Gulf Coast League will
see plenty of this very young man
(Bloodworth is only 14 years old).
After going seven innings with-
out getting into the scoring side
of the game, the power of the
Saints came to bat and decided the
game must be won. MT,-K 12It'. i-iT r-
ring, Philyaw and Murdock did just
that. They scored two runs and tBteu
the visitors came up to bat and
i scored one run in the last half of
the ninth with two men out.. An
over-anxious ball player tried to
take one base too many and W. J.
Herring fielded the ball to Jinmmy
Pbilyaw at third to, end the h al;
:g.lne -and the play-off series."
Ttii. down-to-the-wire play put
the Saints out front in the best
two-out-of-three play-off and made
them the winners of the play-off.

The management and the players
of the St. Joe Saints want zo thank
all of the fans for attending the
games. They want to thank tho
merchants for their support. Tne


Rev. Underhill

Comes To St. James

The Vestry of St. James' Episco-
pal Church have announced that the
Rev. Gardner D. Underhill, B. D.,
has accepted a call' to become
,Priest-in-charge of iSt. James'
Church, Port St. Joe, and of St.
John's Church, Wewahitchka.
Mr. Underhill began his new
work on the first of September. He
came to Port St. Joe from Windsor,
North Carolina, where he had been
the Rector of St. Thomas' Church
for the past six years. During his
ministry there the congregation de-
veloped greatly and the giving for
the work of the Church tripled. Fur-
ther, during Mr. Underhill's admin-
istration a beautiful, modern, effi-
cient Parish House was built.


Retail Merchants' Division deserves
special thanks for putting on Mer-
chant's night. We also want to p'ub-
licly acknowledge the fine support
from the local automobile dealers.
These people made it possible for
the Saints to make their road trips.
f They picked up the monthly gas
, bills and paid it themselves. The
f Star Publishing Company has do-
- nated its space and time in order
f that the public would know what
was happening with your local
baseball team. To all of these peo-
ple, we say thank you and urge
the support of our townspeople to
buy from our local merchants who
are so prompt to support commun-
ity projects.

Congratulations, Union Members
We are of the opinion that the Labor Unions of this
area deserve an "A" for effort.
They put on a grand barbecue and had a good program
to go along with it. It took a lot of planning and work and they
learned about some more planning they will have to do next
year.
Their efforts were so rewarding that, even though they
they 2,000 pounds of beef on hand, there wasn't enough to go
around. The turn-out even exceeded the Union's expectations.
We are proud of the people of this area for giving them this
show of attendance.
We are proud of the Unions f6r observing a holiday here
in grand style. It is done in other places but Por.t St. Joe has
been rather lax in holiday observances. We hope that this will
not remain so.
Another thing we give them credit for, is for doing the
thing up right. Professional barbecuers (if there is such a word)
were brought in to make the meat right. Those thousands who
were served can testify to that fact.
We trust that some of the crowds of people who did not
get served, will not feel bitter toward the hosts. After all that
was quite an undertaking and the planning was for an uncertain
number of people. They will take this into consideration next
time, because they now know that the people of Port St. Joe are
hungry for this kind of get-together.

Better Shopping Means Cooperation
We are full of bouquets this week.
We will now pass one to the Chamber of Commerce.
The directors of that organization have taken up with the fever
of the Merchants Division of that organization to push a trade-
at-home campaign. The Chamber is going to the root of the
matter and will-conduct a survey this week end to ascertain just
why people prefer to trade in adjacent cities rather than with
their home-town merchants. The questionfiaires will be mailed
out to the citizens in the city in the form of a post card. They
desire an anonymous answer on the return card that will be
provided.
This is not just a survey that will provide information
that will be thrown in the waste basket .if isn't what they want to
hear. The results will be carefully analyzed and a campaign will
be then waged among the merchants to try and better our. shop-
ping district.
With the cooperation of you and the merchants, this
port city can have one of the busiest and most modern shopping
districts anywhere around here. .
This can only be brought about .-by cooperation.
The Chamber realizes and we think the buying pub-
lic realizes that each dollar spent at home, works at home. You
will find that most progressive communities is a close knit and
cooperating community. -Your dollar spent at home will serve
to build your community and then we can have some of the
luxuries that a community should have in place of struggling
along just to have the necessities of life as in the past.
We believe every merchant in town is in the same boat.
They are too large to work on a small scale and don't have quite
enough volume to expand on a larger scale to offer a larger shop-
ping area and selection.
More volume means lower prices. The prices in Port
St. Joe can be checked with advertisements in metropolitan news-
papers and you will practically no variance. A little more volume.
at home would make local prices even lower.
We trust that the Chamber's survey will ultimately bring
this about.


Recognition Must Come


T. Coleman Andrews, the former Internal Revenue Com-
missioner who established a record for efficiency in collecting in-
S( / come taxes, and then resigned to conduct a nation-wide campaign
against this "legalized confiscation", has been nominated for the
presidency by the Houston convention of the Constitution Party,
Striped and may be drafted for the post by "For America", the conserva-
Cannon live group headed by General Robert E. Wood Dean Clarence
Ses Mani6n, Dan Smoot and Brigadier General Bonner Fellers. Fur-
ther, he has the endorsement of New Jersey conservatives and
2 for has been urged to run by a similar-minded delegation from five
S1.00 states.
Reg. 69 We do not expect Mr. Andrews to be our next President
i BATH any mcre than we expect him to slay the income tax dragon
Before next April. But if there were in existence the machinery
H by which he might be presented to the voters in No\-mber, he

$1.00 ions of conservatives who are unhappily affiliated with both-
parties must sooner or later have an outlet and increasing num-
blers of s.n*,,,_h rightist organizations are doing their best to:
provide it.
To underrate Mr. Andrews may be as unwise as to
ignore the legion of voters who have no place to go.
