luncheon meeting Thursday noon.
Moss gaVe &the Rotary Club a
picture of what to expect from th.
FSU football team this year.
Moss said- that this first year
under a new coaching staff would
be a yea orf work at FSU, but that
he expected a winning team from
the "Fighting *'-eminoles"o Moss
said the squad was small-only 38
members-but that all .the players
could "do things with a football".
"While we are fielding one of the
smallest teams in collegiate foot-
ball, we will have a winning sea-
son despite a rough a cidule. bjrr-
ing injuries", the coach said.-
The team will open its season on
Saturday, September 19 in Talla-
hassee with Wake Forrest.
Moss .said that he had a good -or-
ganization and i that they were busy
building u'p an alumni association
as. well as a good football team."
In regard to recruiting -of players
Moss .said that the University of
Florida and Florida State 'Univer-
sity were a little handicapped at
recruiting because 'of the stiff aca-
demic requirements of entrance to
both schools. He a!rid that the aca-
,demic entrance requirements to the-
two schools was the highest in the
Soutly. "This is good", said Moss,"
"because the -tudeutsi need to be'
equipped to earn a living-which
they will b doing' a lot longer than
they will be 'playing football".
Moss told the Club that any foot-
ball who receives a scholarship at
,either school which takes care of
all his school expenses,' is earn-d
by any athlete. "The (chedui- is

day convention for Florida Circuit.
No. 4_held in the Bainbridge, Geor-
gia High School Auditorium, Au-
gust 28-30, with '669. from three
states in attendance.
Twenty-two persons under water'
baptism Saturday afternoon as
proof of their 'dedication to serve
Jehovah. That same evening they
enjoyed a technicolor motion 'pic-
ture which showed impressive
scenes of the mass baptism of over
-7,000 persons at the New York "Di-
vine Will Inter'atioaal Assembly"
of last sl.mmer. Wosoba said the
climax p f the three day convention
came Sunday afternoon when J. W.
Filson, the District Supervisor, de-
livered a public discourse on the
timely subject, "A Paradise Earth
Through God's Kingdom".
Filson advocated "brotherly love"
especially in sharing in. the preach-
ing of the "good news" of God's
Kingdom as the means of attaining
the 'paradise which Jesus promised
to the ,evil-doer. He urged intetise
study of the Bible in congregations
and in homes using Bible aids such'
as "From Paradist Lost To Para-
dise Regained". He recommended,
complete dedication of one's life
and 'means, such as Jesus exempli-
fied, .as proof of one's Christianity.
"Preaching and teaching the truth
is, the obligation of every Chris,
tian," said Filson.
Jehovah's Witnesses in 'attend-
ance received an abundance of x-
pert scriptural counsel, and admo-
'nition to push forward with the
ministerial activities in their local
communities with greater zeal.
Those attending from Port St. Joe
were R. H. Wosoba and-wife, along
with 10 other delegates from the

The availability'of spare parts
for human bodies is e-xpan _.ng
rapidly. Eye corneas, a *:l! a,
blood, bones, arteries ari jrrves
are now stored in "ban:'." on

a patient needs a replacement.
The imposing array of spare
parts that already have been
transplanted, banked and fabri-
cated is only the beginning of a
new era in this field. Physicians
are looking forward to the time
.when they can take advantage
of the hearts, lungs and kidneys,

State Will Advertise for Objections
On Plans To Establish Bulkheads In Gulf
TALLAHASSEE-The Cabinet, sitting as the Internal Improvement
Board, Tuesday agreed to advertise for objections to proposed sale of
more than 267 acres of submerged land in St. Joseph's Bay in Gulf
The advertisement, .to determine if anyone objects to the sale, was
asked by upland owners, only persons .eligible to buy -the submerged
land in front of their holdings.
The land was appraised at $1.00
an acre, but state land agent Van
Ferguson got the Cabinet to raise
-the going price 'to $10.00 an acre.
At the suggestion of Gov. LeRoy
Collins, any sale will stipulate that
the .submerged land must be filled
and -developed within three years
-or the land will revert to the state.
This, Collins said, will guarantee
that -the area is being obtained for,
development rather than -to be held
for speculative purposes..
Applicants are John J. Grimes,
Joel Taylor, Thomas Sproull, for
mer Senator George G., Tapper and

race to have fun during summer's
At G p.m., the Labor Day holiday
will get under way-officially. The
nation won't return to normalcy be-
fore midnight Monday, September
During -those 78 hours of hustle,
bustle, hurry and flurry, somewhere
near 400 persons will die in traffic
accidents, according to the National
Safety Council. About 12;000 motor
ists and -pedestrians will -suffer dis
abling injuries. Many thousands of
cars will be wrecked or badly dam-
aged. A lot of people will be ser'-
iously inconvenienced by auto ac-
Drownings will take about 100
The starting gun will find the
nationI's three and a half million
miles of streets and highways
clogged with a seemingly endl.:.s
'swarm of autos-all filled with
folks .determined -to *do the holiday
up in fine style.
What will people do wrong?
They'll 'try to -drive too great a
distance in too little time. They'll
get irritated at other drivers. They
will make 'things, especially tough
for themselves by combining drink-
ing and driving.
And they'll speed.
Many who reach their -destina-
tion will let -their guards down
when taking part in the activities
-that .can make the holiday so de-
lightful-swimming, for example.
Swimmers will go in *the water
alone. They'll dive right in, even
if the water is cold. They'll swim
till exhausted. Many will swim af-
t.er dark, or in unfamiliar waters.
That's why drownings may claim
To put -an end to this annual ac-
cident binge on the highways and
beaches of America, labor and safe-
ty have united, in a national cam-
paign. Its goal: to drastically cut
traffic accidents and drownings,
main booby traps for holidayers.
"Accidents ,over the Labor Day
holiday," said W. G. Farris, Presi-
dent, Machinists Local Lodge No.
1435, .of the International Associa-
tion of Machinists, AFL-CIO, "are
a -terirble waste of the nation's
manpower. America is not just a
body o fland-it is people. To kill
or injure workers is to rob this
country of its most vital resource."
The joint labor-safety campaign
is led by the National Safety Coun-
cil's labor conference, the safety
(and health committee of the AFL-1

W. G. Farris, President, Machin-
ists Local Lodge No. 1435, Inter-
national Association -of Machinists,
AFL-CIO, gave -these life-saving
tips to. motorists and swimmers:
1. Don't try to drive too far-
400 miles -a day should be the limit,
and a lot less than that after work-
ing an 'eight-hour day.
2. Cut your speed at least 10
miles an hour after dark. You'll be
surprised' how much more relaxed
3. Don't -drive if you drink.
4. Don't get burned up at other
drivers. Good drivers keep cool be-
hind the wheel.
5. Don't exceed the speed limit.
And while swimming-
1. Never swim alone, even at a
public beach.'When children swim,
an adult should be present.
2. Don't swim till exhausted-
