perience. This schedule depends

'47 School Year
Baccalaureate Is Unusual In That
Member of Graduating Class
School activities drew to a close
this week with the baccalaureate
services held Sunday evening and
the. graduation exercises Tuesday
evening, with 21 seniors receiving
their coveted sheepskins from the
hand of Tom Orwens, county su-
perintendent of schools.
The baccalaureate service was on
the unusual side, in that a me-m-
ber of the graduating class, Luther
Cardien, was selected by the class
to deliver the sermon. He used as
his theme the'building of a life, and
likened the building of that life
to the-building of a house.
"First of all, we must choose a
firm foundation to 'build our house
of life upon," said' Luther, "and
Jesus has proved himself a tried
and strong foundation by with-
standing all kinds at buffeting.'"
He then stressed the using of the
right kind of building materials in
this life, and urged his, classmates
to use the. building materials ap-
proved by our God and Savior and
'"you will suffer no want."
Due to the fact that the speaker
scheduled for the graduation exer-
cises could not appear due to ill-
ness, Rev. Tom Byrne was called
upon in the emergency, and de-
livered) a speech that will be long

Ball Says Rail Merger
Ruling Will Be Fought
The interstate commerce com-
miss'ion last week handed down its
decision on disposal of the Florida
East Coast Railroad, ruling that
the. Atlantic Coast Line would take
over its operation rather than the
St. Joe Paper Company.
Edward' Ball stated Tuesday that
"wd do not accept the decision of
the commission as final and will
take every possible legitimate step
to secure its reversal."
Trustees. of the duPont estate and
the St. Joe Paper Company have
made large investments in FEC
bonds (holding a majority oif the
firsthand refunding mortgageibonds)
in an effort to 'aid in developing
various east coast communities
and assure continued operation of
the Florida East Coast road.

Expect 200 Boy
Scouts for 3-Day
First Time In History of Bay-Gulf
District That Event Has Been
Held Within a City
Final plans for a huge Boy Scout
camporee, the first of its kind in
the history pf the Bay-Gulf district,
were completed this week and this
afternoon approximately 200 Boy
Scouts from 2.2 troops 'will gather
in this city for thre-e days of ac-
Livities and, operations. Senior and
adult leaders will also be present,
as. well as district scout officials.
This camporee, which will be lo-
cated on the vacant block between
Fourth and Fifth Streets opposite
the Ward Clinic, reverses previous
scouting policy in that it is located
within a city rather than out in
the hinterlands, in order to give
parents and friends of scouting and
the general public an opportunity
to insepct the. activities.
Six event stations will be located
on the site where the various
troops *ill compete in knot-tying,
t'irs't aid', nature study, axmanship,
judging and woodcraft. The public
is urged to attend these competi-
tions and the camp will be open to
the public at all times.
The boys and the-ir leaders will
live in small tents during the cam-
poree and rigid discipline will be
enforced, with the boys checking
in and out of camp.

Our Country 'Z.7- Right or Wrong
A THIRD PARTY IN THE OFFING?
As usually happens a year or so before a
presidential election,' talk is making the
rounds concerning the possibility of a third-
party entrant into the greatest race on earth.
This idea was broached to Mr. Wallace when
he was abroad, and he made a statement to
the effect that he sought no office but would
be glad to serve in any capacity that would
advance the cause of peace. Prior to that, Mr.
Wallace had suggested that Senator Claude
Pepper would be a good standard bearer for
a party whose main plank would be better re-
lations with Russia. Pepper declined the honor
The. history of third-party 'movements in
this country is certainly not encouraging to
possible aspirants. The electoral system, plus
the very practical fact that only the established
parties have the local organizations that get
,out the vote, works against them. Even Theo-
Adore Roosevelt, inning as an ex-president
-with an- enormous personal following, could
-not make the grade. The elder LaFollette was
.onle of the driving personalities of the time,
Lbut the 'best he could do was carry Wisconsin.
The last third-party candidacy, that of Repre-
-sentative Lempke, collapsed like a pricked bal-
loon. And the perennial minor-paity candi-
dates Socialist, Prohibition, etc. rarely
-carry even a single U. S. county. This is defi-
miitely a two-party nation. ,
The next election, it seems -certain, will be
.a fairly exact reflection of the Roosevelt-
WVillkie race to the extent that there will be
aio important difference over what our foreign
policy should be. The isolationists, in either
party, are now so heavily outnumbered that
they hardly count. The campaign, as a conse-
,quence, will be almost entirely conducted on
*domestic issues-unless, of course, some great
'and unexpected event occurs to entirely change

will be the Democratic candidate. He will

Cold waves probably account' for

' Dewey, with Stassen and Warren as the prin-
cipal lesser contenders.
The issues on which the campaign will be
fought are in the making. One is labor; taxa-
tion is another lively issue, and the size of the
budget will make another good controversy.
A president whose party had lost control of
both branches of congress would normally be
regarded as a hopeless standard bearer.
Usually loss of but one branch at mid-term
has been sufficient to assure defeat for the
incumbent. Yet the Republicans now have a
very healthy respect for Mr. Truman's possi-
bilities as a vote-getter, and they have lost the
overconfidence that followed the last national
election. The public' opinion polls indicate that
this may be the closest contest in a great many
years-possibly the closest since the Wilson-
H1ughes campaign. That in itself is a novelty
after a series of campaigns in which the result
was never seriously in doubt.
THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR INFLATION
Port St. Joe business men have been joining
with retailers all over the country in the drive
to lower prices in an, effort to stabilize'the
national economy. They took the initiative
voluntarily and have done everything within
their power to check the inflationary spiral.
However, consumers shouldn't expect a mir-
acle to occur. The influence of retail business
on the final selling price of anything is strictly
limited. It lies largely in holding retail profits
to a reasonable minimum and in reducing op-
erating costs. Prices on some commodities
here in Port St. Joe have come down, but so
far as basi ccosts are concerned, such as raw
materials, wages and the rest, our local mer-
chants can't do a thing about them.
The causes of inflation go deep. Govern-
ment debt and government spending ars,
among the most important. We can't have a
stable economy without a stable and conser-
vative government fiscal program. The re-
sponsibility for achieving this lies squarely on
congress and the president.
The demands of labor for higher and higher
wages are also aiding in bringing on unbridled
inflation, for the higher wages are passed
along to the consumer of the manufactured
products, so more dollars in the pay envelope
are meaningless when each dollar purchases
less and less.
Finally, it is the inescapable responsibility
of all business to hold profits to a moderate
level, and to produce with maximum effici-
ency and minimum waste.
What it all adds up to is that inflation must

BIRTH OF THE MONTH CLUB

of ,the "Birth of the Month Club"
(a stork 'publication)! The title is
"Janeit Marie," by Mr. and Mrs.
Herman' Callahan. The size is small.
and hidebound in delicate hand-
washed pink. It is guaranteed' to
stand a lifetime of 'wear and tear.
Weight of the volume is 8 pounds
8 ounces. Date of publication: Jan-
uary 4, 1947. The copy is not for
sale, but is on permanent exhibi-
tion atRingold, Ga.
We made a remark on the front
'page a couple' of weeks ago about
people not paying #their city gar-
bage collection tax, and a couple
of days later M. H. Elder stopped
us on the street and' in a very in-
dignanit tone of voice told us off,
saying he had always paid' his gar-
bage 'tax and was. getting darned,
poor colle-ction service out in his
neck of the woods, and that a lot of
people who didn't pay the collec-
tion fee were getting a 'blamed
sight; better service, and if they'd
pay up, perhaps the city could' af-
'ford to put on another truck. .
We couldn't get a 'word in edge-
ways for about 10 minutes, but
when we finally interrupted che
flow of words. we asked him why
pick on us, we didn't: saiy he had
failed' to pay his collection fee, In
fact: we didn't even know whether
or not he had any garbage, and
if he had any complaint to make
of other people not paying why
not take it up 'with the c'iy dads.
Finally 'we had ,to' walk
away and leave him muttering to
himself of the injustice of half the
people of the city 'paying ithe cost
of garbage collection ,while the
ctiher half took a free ride. .
