ETAOIN SHRDLU
by WES-LEY R. RAMSEY
C S.* 0*0 ** W e 404
We are ashamed to admit it, but
we saw our first ball game that
the Saints have played this year
Tuesday night. It will not be our
'last one.
Although the magic names of
Belin, Herring, Lane, Burke, Mc-
Call, Dendy, Hinote, Thomas, Wal-
ters, and many others have van-
ished from the ball park, the
present-day Saints still have that
old punch that made their prede-
cessors the Yankees of the Big
Bend. They have the pitching, ntt-
ing and fielding of the old Sainc
and the big victory string to go
along with it. We might say that
they have even more formidable
opponents than their predecessors.
Even though the Saints beat their
rival of Tuesday night, Wewaii'ch-
ka, by the comfortable margin of
7-1, it was an excellent ball gain
with good fielding, double plays
and some good solid hitt-' i".
It's a pity they don't gel more
support since tffey play some good
ball games.
I'm going to be there next Tues-
day,--are you?

Our heart along with many oth-
ers, was sad at the sudden passing
of "Red" Fuller We don't supposO
"Red" had an enemy in the worlJ
not even those who were the fre-
quent but of his full repertoire of'
practical jokes. "Red" kept ihe
main drag hummin-_ with his imi-
tations (especially of Mayor Shar-
it) and provided au eeded laugh
for many of h0 s i teow business
men.
"Red" wiil be minised.

We got titkJe,i at Bob Ellzey -
Monday night ar the 'Legion meet- i
ing. As the incoming Commiander
of the Legion, he was called ,on to ,t
make a short talk. Bob came to the l
speaker's table and his first sen- ,
tence was, "Unaccustomed as I am
to public speaking ."
That made us snicker up our
,shirt sleeve.
Everyone knows that Bob is the
only full fledged sidewalk lawyer
in town and his opinion can be had f
on anything without even asking: b

Babe Ruth Team

Loses To Niceville

,Monday Port St. Joe's Babe Ruth
league tournament team traveled
to Eglin Air Force Base to partici-
pate in the Northwest Florida Dis-
trict play offs.
The first game in the playoff was
played between Pensacola and Tal-
lahab nday afternoon. Pen-
sacolai pitcher, Vickory shut
out the Tallahassee team by a 9-0
score. Vickory gave up only one
hit, three walks and struck out 15
Tallahassee batsnmen.
In the second game, Port St. Joe
played a team composed of players
from Niceville, Valparaiso and Eg-
lin Air Force Base.
Bob Munn was the starting pitch-
er for Port St. Joe. He gave up five
hits and -six runs and struck 'out
eight batters before he was relieved
in the top of the seventh by Nelson
Hall. MHall plitcha "to -sIx 'men in
the seventh and was relieved by
Jimmy Dawson. Dawson pitched to
;hree men and gave up one hit. In
the seventh, Valparaiso-Niceville '
scored three runs, the most they
had scored in one inning, but they
were strictly Insurance runs as they
already had a comfortable 6-3 lead.
The Port St. Joe ball club com-
mitted five errors and Valparaiso-
Niceville six. St. Joe collected only
'our hits off pitcher Bruner, singles
by Frank Griffin, Don Gardner and
Bob Munn and a double by Ernest
Thursday. Bruner struck out nine
St. Joe players.
It was a close pitcher's duel un-
til the sixth inning when Valpa-
raiso-Niceville broke loose. All In
all the St. Joe club made an ex-
cellent showing for their first ap-
pearance in tournament play and
the boys are to be commended on
heir fine playing against a more
experienced Babe Ruth League
team and a much bigger ball club.,
The Valparaiso-Niceville team
was composed mainly of 15 year
oIds who had had a few years train-
ng in Babe Ruth League play.
Members of the Port St. Joe club
stayed overnight in barracks as-

Dowd, Paper Co.


Question Listings

By EDWARD A. IBANDJOUGH
Based on allegations made and evidence submitted by Jo-
seph V. Dowd, of Port St. Joe, and by the St. Joe Paper Com-
pany, in the person of Harry Saunders,. vice-president, acceptance
of the tax roll from the tax assessor, Samuel Patrick, by the County
Commissioners has been postponed at least two more weeks.
It happened at the court house Monday morning from 9:00
til 12:00 noon.
Dowd, although a paper company employee, appeared in
his own behalf, as a taxpayer.
As a consequence of the allegations and the evidence sub-
mitted by the two men, and others, the Board agreed to recess
until the first Monday in August, to give the tax assessor time to
investigate the new claims and to make whatever changes he
deems necessary, if any, as a consequence of his investigation.
'Dowd, first to speak, labelled
the tax roll as it presently stands, per company taxes hav- increased
as "utter nonsense, wholesale, all out of proportion to taxes on
barefaced deceit, hypocracy and other counties businesses. In Ita
dishonesty." first tax vear (194) Ana per com.


As evidence, he submitted a list
of 47b names from the phone di-
r-ctory, which names do not ap-
pear on the tax rolls as having
any taxable personal effects. He

*.NLY TLN FILE HV TUR, .
*Dawd said that only -ten peo-
pl] filed the required tf.urn on
tangPlle personal property, that
no one filed a return on intangible
personal property. He found this
nina2zng, he said, especiv.ly c(n
..ide'ing that Port St. Jo3 has the
highest per capital income in the
State.
Dowd said he had no quarrel
with any individuals, nor with the
tax system. He said it was simply
time to put an end to -the system
and that, if need be, he would take
his case to the highest court in
the land to iron out the inequities
and inaccuracies he charges are to
be found on the roll as it was
presented Monday at the court
house by the tax assessor.
"We're penalizing people who
abide by -the law (i. e. who file the
proper returns and pay the proper
taxes) and rewarding those who
don't," Dowd said, notifying the
Board that he would litigate the
matter, if no change was made in
the roll, even "at the expense of
delaying the collection of taxes."
TELEPHONE LIST
Later, he ,pointed out that his
list of .675 names showed only the
telephone subscribers who had not
filed a personal property tax re-
turn. Time, he said, prevented him
from checking up on the filing ha-
bits of the non-phone subscribers.
But he warned that he would hold
'the tax assessor liable for insuring
that all owners of personal property
in the county were checked to de-
termine the extent of their personal
property holdings.
Attorney Ben Dickens of Port St.
Joe represented Dowd.
Harry Saunders devoted his re-
marks 'to the business and profes-

anchorin' in the channel, but
he didn't say a word. He lu-llcd

of their owner and not under the

Saunders requested that these
:v c; and any others not 1now on,
the roll but which should be, be
included on the 1957 roll.
SAUNDERS REQUESTS
In addition, he made the following
requests:
1. That the 1-3 increase in evalua-
tion be reflected across the board
on the 1957 tax roll. He alleged that
such was not now the case.
2. That homestead exemptions
also reflect the 1-3 increase. Very
few, if any, homes would be affect-
ed, he thought, but that was no rea-
son not to put the increased evalua-
tion on this property on the roll.
__3. That all businesses appear on
TH the roll under their business name.
Your .j4. That the Board recess until
op" tthe requested additions are made,
i Pharmacist if any; that a separate list of the
changes be submitted by the tax
assessor, when he resubmits his

During the course of his re-marks,

tor, George Tapper, to provide the

ponsibility in this matter. What it started the re-evaluation talk. Tap-
opposes are the inequalities, he con- per told the Board and a small an-

Then, if necessary, advance that

OUTSIDE APPRAISERS
. In this connection, he said, the
paper company would raise no ob-
d1betions if outside experts were
called in-a suggestion opposed by
Saunders when first proposed late
last year. Nor, continued Saunders
would the company object' to a
100% evaluation. -
.Saunders turned then to the busi-
ness and professional men, alleging,
grave inequalities in personal pro-
perty taxes. Ward Clinic is the only
medical office listed on the tax
roll. No other doctor's office is list-
ed on the roll as having personal
property, Saunders observed, when
it is well-known that medical equip-
ment is expensive.
All practicing attorneys at law
have law libraries, said Saunders,
"impliments of their trade" and
sizeable investments to boot. Yet
he charged, with one exceptli ),
not one lawyer in the county hap
filed a personal property tax return.
He then reeled off a list of about
100 names of tourist camps, motels,
hotels, service stations, grocery
store, dry goods stores, barber
shops, etc., whose owners do not
appear to have filed personal pro-
perty ,tax returns on these busi-
nsse. assessor said later that

Representatives of the finance
committee, a sub-committee of the
GCEC, talked with he tax assess-
or, according to Tapper, at which
time, he said, the tax assessor
pledged his cooperation.
Tapper asserted that the com-
mittee wanted equalization first,
then reassessment, but, he said, the
'tax assessor simply raised evalua-
tion by one-third, paying no atten-
tion to equalization.
WITHDREW SUPPORT-
Because, said Tapper, the tax as-
sessor did not cooperate as he
promised, the finance committee,.
pledged to defend any assessment
which the tax assessor might have
made under the committee's plan,
withdrew its support in a etate-
ment made public in the June 27

possible now.
"It is impossible for Mr. Patrick
to do all the appraising. And I am
making no complaints against Mr.
Patrick because the tax situation
is what it is in this county today.
A man elected to office, it is only
natural that he strive to continue
in office by using the best means
at his disposal, the lowest possible
tax for the greatest number of
people.
TIME FOR CHANGE
"The time has come for a change
and outside appraisers are needed
to make it. Most of the people are.
not paying taxes. That's why you
have a people who take no interest
in taxes, the operation of the ci-
ties, the county, the school board.
A tax paying person will wake up
and take the necessary interest",
said Tapper.
In his defense of his figures, the
tax assessor said that they com-
pare favorably with Bay County's,
the only other county in the area
which invokes a tax on home-type
personal property. Assessor Pat-
rick said that ,Gulf County's taxes
are scaled about 1-6 lower than
Bay's. He thought this was very
fair. lie also said to this reporter
that when he paid his personal
call upon the people whose names
appear on t-he Dowd list, and other
people not on this list, these peo-
ple will be found still exempt un-
der the terms of the 1-3 increase
in evaluation.
Patrick agreed, at the request of
the Board, to call personally upoi
the persons named and to include
all names not now on the roll, whe-
ther or not they will eventually pay
any taxes.

Florida Eats 21

Million Gallons

Of Frozen Desserts

Florida residents and visitors con-
sumed 21 million gallons of ice
cream and other frozen desserts
last year.
This appetite for the frozen del-
icacies was 18 per cent bigger than
in 1955 compared with a national
demand of 4 per cent more.
Measuring the manufacture of
ice cream in Florida against the
past five-year average, production
was up 45 per cent, almost four
times the national rate. Production
in Florida through May of this year
'has been about the same as in 1956,
`the Florida State Chamber of Com-
merce reported yesterday.
About 400 plants (including 70
wholesalers) in Florida produce
frozen desserts. Volume -last year
was made up of 16,245,000 gallons
'of ice cream made with butter fats
and an estimated 4,720,000 gallons
of related desserts.
.Monthly variations in the Florida
productions are brought out in this
week's business review of the State
Chamber's research and industrial
division. Last year was the first,
during which no month fell below
a millions gallons. The usual highs
were set in August. 1,700,000 gal-
lons,with July slightly under that
amount.
Summer production, April
through September, was 22 per cent
greater than during the winter
months. Nationally, summer pro-
duction was more than twice the
winter volume.
