PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA THURSDAY, MARCH 7, 1957

"There will be no All-Confer-
ence team picked this year, be-
cause the press didn't show up to
do the job".
Those were the words of Chap
Millergren, principal of the Li-
berty County High School last
Saturday night at the final game
of the Group II, Class B basket-
ball tournament held in Bristol.
Naturally Bob McKiernan and
Red Fuller were there, because
there was a ball game going on.
They bleated out in their "ball
game yelling" voice, "Wesley
Ramsey's here!" And we were
too. Sitting-right smack in the
middle of the Malone fans where
their emotional outbursts on be-
half of their team made us take
the position that discretion was
the better part of valor. In oth-
er words, we felt that if we yell-
ed for the home team in that en-
viorriment, they would gently
shove us off the bleachers.
We noticed that the Malone
crowd confined themselves to
"Kill Taylor!" "Get Hinote out
of there" and seemingly had no
worry about the score that their
team was losing by. The Sharks
had more than sweet revenge for
their defeat at the hands of Ma-
lone Tigers in Chipley.
Anyhow, to get back to this
All-Conference Team. We were
the only press there, save for
Wallace Finlay of Blountstown,
who lives too close to Bristol
to risk picking such a team. We
consider it our duty to pick the
All-Conference team, even tho
we might be considered just a
little prejudiced. So here it is.
Wayne Taylor, forward
Blair Shuford, forward
Wilford Elliott, center
Terry Hinote, guard
Louis Ray, guard
We would like to give special
honorable for Franklin Fletcher
who did an excellent job of fill-
ing the spot left by Wilford Ell-
iott and his sprained ankle.
Well, there's your team, and
at the risk of being called a brag-
gart, we are going to say that
we have done an excellent job
of picking this team.
It made us proud of the home
town Saturday to see nearly
: three-fourths of the Bristol gym
packed with St. Joe people root-
ing the Sharks to their champion-
From the talk about town,
there will be just about as big
a crowd in Gainesville to see
them win their first State Cham-
Needless to say, there were
some happy coaches and ball
players cavorting about on the
court Saturday night after the
We found, out what made
them win too. When Millergren
called for the captain of the team
to come receive the trophy, the
entire team went out. There was
no captain, they were a team -
and what a team.

Page Horatio Alger!
Lemuel R. Boulware, vice president of General Electric,
agrees with Edmund Burke who sought to dissuade James III
from driving the American colonies into rebellion that: "The
only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do
The evil that disturbs Mr. Boulware is our accelerating drift
toward a welfare state and away from the system of free, compe-
titive enterprise that has made this nation not only the wealthiest
but the happiest in the world. It is time, he thinks, for another I
American rebellion against the demagogue's axiom that: "It's
good politics to be anti-business."
To show how right the rabble-rousers are, and to prove
that the businessman is in the public's dog-house, he cites a pre-
convention Gallup poll in which a cross-section of the voters fav-
ored for the Presidency a man who "usually sides with labor"
over one who "usually sides with business" by more than three to
onel No wonder Mr, Boulware observes in a recent article in
HUMAN EVENTS that: ". .. the politicians figure union offi-
cials can and do influence votes, while businessmen can't and
But it is high time to consider who is picking on whom.
In such a country as ours, in which the vast majority of us are
businessmen (and businesswomen), such a poll proves that either
people don't think, or a lot of businessmen don't believe in the
system of which they are a part! Perhaps the owner-driver of a
taxicab, the man who runs a lunch-counter or a filling station, a
newsstand or a farm doesn't think of himself as a businessman.
Perhaps the small businessman's mind has been poisoned by the
demagogues with jealousy of the man who works for a "big" busi-
ness when anyone in his right mind knows that small businesses
get big by doing a good job for the public. We all know that,
because we are all customers. And every worker, whether for
a big business or a small one, should cherish his American right
to set up a business of his own if and when he wants to.
The alternative to our free enterprise system is the welfare
state, in which, as Mr. Boulware points out, everyone will be
very little indeed except the anti-business demagogues and the
Federal overseers. If we are to save what we have, businessmen
will have to save it all businessmen, from the shine boy to the
board chairman. They will have to discover what they believe
and why, and learn to talk about it as loudly and as convincingly
as the politician plugging for Big Government and collectivism.
They must in fact, convince the politicians that it's very
bad politics to be anti-business. And soon.

INCOME TAX TIME-It's gett-
ing toward "that time." Need help
o.n yours? If you come under the
heading of a "small" business man,
here's an idea. Write to the Senate
Select Committee on Small Busi-
ness for a 116 page booklet called
"Tax Guide for Small Business." It
was written at the suggestion of
Senator George Smmathers. Three
weeks ago Smathers was talking
to his friend Arthur Godfrey and
Godfrey complained about the dif-
ficulty of making out his income
taxes. Smathers sent him a copy of
his booklet. Godfrey liked -it so
well that he told his television au-
dience about it. Immediately the
Committee was overrun with re-
quests. After the third day the av-
erage reached 500 requests in each
mail. Result: rush order for 10,000
additional copies. So, get yours
while the Committee still lhas a
supply. After they run out you will
have to pay 30c for a copy from the
Government Printing Office.
WHITE HOUSE TESTIMONIAL
-After Jim Haggerty, press secre-
tary to the President, returned from
his recent Florida vacation he
wrote to Congressman Charlie Ban-
nett, "I had a wonderful time at
Ponte Vedra and got the first real
rest and relaxation that I have had
in more than a year. It is a perfect
spot." At the same time, the White
House appointment secretary, Ber-
nard Shanley, indicated tha* serious
consideration is being given to the
personal appearance of President
against Israel, but insisted that the UN is on the spot and must put
up or shut up. At the same time he csided Israel for non-com-
pliance and obstructionism.
Regarding UN reluctance to take issue with Russia on the
Hungarian massacres, while urging sanctions against Israel, and
perhaps in answer to Senator Knowland's "double standard" ac-
cusation, the President reminded the nation that "two wrongs do
not make a right". He also pointed out that the USSR is "relatively
impervious" to sanctions and that there is "no equating of Israel
with the Soviet Union".
While President Eisenhower was apparently pleading with
the American people for some expression of their faith in and
support of the UN, he also appeared to be confirming Senator
Knowland's "double standard" appraisal.
A United States of Europe
A United States of Europe, to consist of France, West Ger-
many, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg may
be close at hand after a three-day Paris conference in which
major differences appear to have been ironed out. The six na-
tions would do away with customs barriers and set up a unified
atomic power program.
If and when this happens, Americans can forget about the
35 hour week, higher pay, more fringe benefits or more coffee
breaks. Having given these nations our mass production know-
how and restored their economic stability we'll have to really
buckle down to compete. It might be good for all of us on
both sides of the ocean.

From the Webster Times, Web-
ster, Massachusetts: A business
firm must account to its share-
holders for the way the firm's
money is spent. When a question
is raised, a full and honest ex-
planation of the conduct of the
business is forthcoming-unless
something unwise .or illegal has
As a rule, those responsible
for running a business are eager
and proud to tell of their accom-
plishments. When they withhold
information, the stockholders de-
mand an investigation.
A town is big business. The
same above-board, honest expla-
nation of town affairs should be
given to the citizens, and usually
that is what happens. However,
it isn't always practical to go
into details of every routine occur-
rence, and that isn't expected.
Nonetheless, transactions often
come to light which arouse the
interests of the voters. Sometimes
the citizens fail to ask questions,
and officials rarely offer volun-
tary explanations because few
seem interested enough to ask.
Occasionally, things transpire
which are purposely unexplained
by officials though citizens may
speculate as to the advisability,
or even the legality, of such trans-
actions. In such cases, they de-
;pend upon their newspapers to
ask the questions and to acquaint
the public with the facts, in the
best interests of the town.
When a question is raised, there
should be an honest answer given.
Any official or department should
"be willing to give a full and open
explanation without quibbling. In-
deed, they should be eager to do
so, if their actions are honest
and above suspicion. Only by
this means can the citizenry
know that they have chosen the
right officials for the job
Voters will decide on much
town business which they want
conducted they will have
every right to know how this busi-
ness is transacted. Therefore, in
many instances, questions should
be raised in order to give the
shareholders the voters and
taxpayers .. a fair and honest
picture of, how their officials are
working for them.
Let us raise these questions
as often as seems necessary. Full
and honest answers should be
