Two Ball Games
To St. Joe Saints
Sunday Tilt Goes 1- Innings For
4-1 Score; Hinote Gets Shut-
out Here Wednesday
The S'aints went on to increase
their lead over Apalachicola in the
Gulf Coast League when they de-
feated, the Oystermen 5-0 in -the
local ball park Wednesday after-
noon behind the hurling of Terry
Hinote. Terry got into a couple of
bad holes, but keeping, a cool head
and. with the assistance of his
team mates, came out of them
safely to be credited with a shut-
out. He retired eight men by the
strikeout route and gave two walks
while Hendels, on the .mound for
Apalachicola, gave four walks ana
-was credited with two strikeouts.
Leonard Belin was the star per-
former of the tilt, chalking up two
home runs for a total of ten so
far this season. His first came in
the third, driving Tommy Mitchell
in ahead of him, andi the second
came in the seventh with two men
out and no one on base.
The Saints, scored one run in the
second inning, two fin the third,
one in the fourth and one in the
fifth for their total of five.
The Oystermen had a golden op-
portunity to score in the third inn-
ing when the bases were loaded
with-no outs. Hinote struck out

a runner at home on an attempted
sacrifice, and the third -out wa6.
marked up on a play from Lane'
to Belin. The Apalachicolans again
threatened to score in the seventh
after a runner had advanced to
third, but the attempt was nipped
in the bud by the Saints who were
bound to give Hinote his shutout.
In a pitcher's battle that went to
10 innings the Saints defeated the
second place Apalachicola Oyster-
inen on their home field Sunday
by a score of 4 to 1 behind the
hurling of Lefty Thomason, who
chalked up his ninth straight win
and kept his record at the 1.000

AVERS STORY OF BASEBALL
RUCKUS WAS 'HUMILIATING'
One of the two women men-
tioned in the story of the freefor-
all staged< at the baseball game in
Wewahitchka on July 24 has in-
formed us that she was "greatly
humiliated" by the story, that there
was no "argument" since she did
not utter a word.
The word "argument" used in
the story was merely a figure of
speech, referring to a general me-
lee, sounding much 'better than
other words that could have been
used under the circumstances.
There was no intention of "hu-
miliating" anyone, for a newspaper
does not intentionally do sucn
things. In fact, no names were
mentioned in the story for that
reason, and we are indeed sorry ir
either of the two women feel they
have been humiliated, for such was
not the intent.

of the state at the general election
Of the six amendments sought

The appropriation amendment,
claimed by its sponsors to be a
means of giving 'the legislature a
biennial check on state govern-
mental expenditures, requires that
all legislative acts appropriating
money be in a separate law or
laws, and that no law on any otae,
subject include an appropriation.
;All appropriations, with the spe-
I cific exemptions, would be limited
to periods of two years. Exempted
from the two-year limitation on ap-
propriations are those for county
schools, counties, cities, or politi-
cal subdivisions of the state, ap-
propriations for permanent im-
provements and buildings for state
institutions as provided for by laws
enacted at the 1945 legislature or
prior legislatures, and for pen-

Plans for a concerted campaign
in every Florida county and com-
munity to curb and prevent juve-
nile delinquency were given at a
meeting Wednesday in Tallahassee
of Governor Ca'ldwell's statewide
Florida children's committee.
It is expected that a uniform or-
ganizational setup will be made in
each county designed to supple-
ment and strengthen all agencies.

with youth problems.

state government is subject to
legislative review every two year-i.
All of the continuing appropria-
tions, except those particularly
specified, would be discontinued
and nullified as of July 1, 1947.
Described as something of a
companion to the approprlavrons
proposal, the amedi ment next in
importance submitted by the legis-
lature will, if ratified by the peo-
ple in November, establish a state
budget director, who would be ap-
pointed by the legislature, ana
would, perform duties specified by
the legislature from time to time.
In general, duties of the director
of the budget would be to super-
vise expenditure of funds appropri-
ated *by the legislature, to assure
the money being spent in accord-
ance with legislative direction.
Three of the other four amend-
ments are designed to effect con-
solidation of county and city gov-
ernmental functions, particularly
with regard to taxation, in Hills-
borough, Orange and Ray counties.
Hillsiborough county already op-
erates under an amendment con-
solidating tax assessing and col-
lecting for the county as to all
mnunibipalities. Plant City would
be eliminated from its provisions
by the proposed amendment.
The Orange county amendment
authorizes special legislative acts
to consolidate any and all offices
and functions of government of
county and municipalities, but re-
quires that any such acts be sub-
mitted, to referendum elections in

Our Country 7f, Right or Wrong
The best way to combat tuberculosis, a
prominent doctor points out, is to be con-
stantly engaged in a fight to discover its
symptoms. Since all recent strides in reducing
the death-rate have been made because of
early detection it is evident that more thor-
ough examinations would produce even better
results, and the Florida State Board of Health
is to be commended for its plan to X-ray all
children of our state with a battery of portable
Tuberculosis is something very remote to
us until it becomes very intimately associated
with some member of the family, and then it
becomes an active, aggressive enemy. Because
doctors can cure it in most cases only before
it becomes complicated, mass skin tests or

Early detection then, does two things it

Congress has passed a bill which will pay
half the price of damages caused by the tidal
wave which hit Hawaii in April, some sixteen
million dollars. We can't see why the tax-
payers should be soaked for what properly
can be termed "an act of God." Supposing the
same thing should happen here in Port St.
Joe-would we expect the government to re-
pair the damage?
Now that General MacArthur has clamped

well to recall that the best the Japs ever gave

THE LEADER SHOE
EDUCATION CHALLENGED BY TRUMAN
President Truman's statement, upon signing
a joint resolution placing the United States
in the United Nations' educational, scientific
and cultural organization, that "if peace is to
endure, education must establish the moral
unity of mankind," is a direct challenge to the
people of Florida and the entire nation.
He declared further that "the government
of the United States will work with and
through the UNESCO to the end that the
minds of all people may be freed from ignor-
ance, prejudice, suspicion and fear, and that
men may be educated for justice, liberty and
peace." While the president's appeal is na-
tional in scope, its application points specific-
ally to every classroom in Florida from kin-
dergarten through the university.
Times require of government, diplomacy,
business, and all the professions, more and
better personnel and equipment, and more
funds for permanent improvements and up-
keep. The demands of this modern age do
not exempt the schools. All public educational
institutions in Florida must receive more'
funds from the state, and private institutions
must be given more generous contributions
by donors, else their great responsibilities
cannot be adequately met and the challenge of

KEEP THAT INSURANCE, JOE
This month the Veterans Administration is
launching a campaign urging all GI's to re-
tain their government life insurance, or if
they have let it lapse, to have it reinstated.
Probably a lot of you GI's in Gulf county
don't realize it, but that insurance is a real
bargain and one that will be appreciated in
later years. And if you don't think so, just
ask some of the veterans of World War 1
right here in Port St. Joe who failed to keep
up their government insurance. They're all
kicking themselves for being damphools. And,
.Qp the other hand, have a talk with the few
who did keep up their insurance. They can
tell you what it really mans to them today.
Your editor has talked with quite a num-
ber of the local World War II veterans in re-
gard to this matter and was surprised at the
number who have let their insurance lapse.
Why, we can't understand. All we can tell
'em is that "You'll be sorry, Joe, in later years
if you don't keep up that policy."
The doctors say drink plenty of water, the
brewers say drink plenty of beer, and the cof-
fee people say drink plenty of coffee. A per-
son would have to be hollow clear to the heels
to accommodate 'em all.
