Claims No Saving To City, No Veto;
and That Editor Spreading
In a letter that if published in
full would about fill a page of The
Star, City Clerk Mark Tomlinson
"objects strenuously to what he
terms "purported happenings" at a
meeting of the city commission on
We had informed Mr. Tomlinson
that we would be more than glad
to publish hi.s. letter to the editor,
up to about 500 'words, but when we
saw the lengthy epistle we had
to tell him that lack of space pro-
hibited full publication, and- tumn
we could only hit the highlights.
He avers the letter is 'strictly his
,own idea. H-re 'tis:
"Editor The Star-Your issue of
August 1 carried an article pur-
porting to report happenings at a
meeting of the city commission on
.July 30 at.which time the firm of
Thornton, Mohr & C. presented a
proposal to refinance the city's
present bonded indebtedness.
"I feel the citizenry of Port St.
Joe is entitled to have facts of the
matter placed before them whereby
independent decision .can be reach-
ed as to whether or not proposal

"Proposal made by Thornton,
Mohr & Co. relative to d'retging
bonds was as follows: (Sinoe The
Star agreed, not to publish figures
submitted, at request oiL Attorney
Lewis, Commis's.ioner Sharit and
the bond, brokers, we feel that they
should not be published here.-Ed.)
"'Projected cost of these bonds un-
der present conditions, $130,020;
refund bonds under proposal, total
cost $1.23.645; Savings under pro-
posed refunding plan. $6,375. These
bonds at present are callable 30
days prior to any' interest date.
Proposal was to make refunding
"Proposal made relative to water
and sewer revenue debentures of
$210,000, with interest and princi-
pal, would give total cost of $342,-

and sewer system's indebtedness as
it no'w stands is $252,160. Addi-
tional cost under proposed refund-
ing on this item, $89,965; additional
cost under proposed refund:, both
items, $83,590. '
"Was the plan vetoed by the city
commission? The mayor said'the
matter would not be put to a vote
at this meeting due to absence of
Commissioner Chestnut. Commis-

An anonymous writer in the Apalachicola Times, signing him-

editor of The Star last Friday that
he had discovered' that a number
of youngsters in Port St. Joe had
secured (surplus army gas' masks
from someone in, town and were
using them for diving.
"I imagine they 'got the idea
from a talk I 'made 'here some time
ago in -which I said something
about using rebuilt gas ,masks for
diving," said 'Miller. "I want to ad-
vise them that that is, very danger-
ous for a green hand. as. they are

Now let us get on with that an-
onymous writer's article. ... (The
blackface type is his, the lightface
is ours) :
One look will disclose that ex-
actly half of the Port St. Joe team
is composed of Apalachicola boys.
We:l, well, that IS news. Let's
look into the matter: Taking the

That leaves' us Bennie Burke,
who came here from Apalachicola
when he got out do the army to
keep from starving, and' three subs,
,'Slick" Edwards, whose father was
transferred here :by the A. N. rail-
road, C. *Roifoinzs, who was trans-
ferred 'here by the Florida Power
Corporation, and Gene Elliott, the
man twho likes to play but isn't
wanted on the Apalach team.
While Port St. Joe does not hire
any of their players ? ? ? yet it is
interesting to note that the Apa-
lachicola boys who are excellent
ball players are given "fat jobs"
by Port $t. Joe industrialists. Cer-
ta.inly a blind man can see the con-
nection between the "Fat job" and
the ball playing. Had this not been
the circumstance it would not have
been necessary for Apalachicola to
seek outside assistance on its team.
The onil An:.lachicolian who has
one of these. "fat jobs" is Bennie
Burke, aind as Bucky 'Walters put,
it, "I'd sure like to see one of those
"fat jcbs.' We really have to work.'
As for "out i'le assistance," the cry
olf Apalachicola for two years now
has been "Beat St. Joe-We Don't
Care How, But Beat 'Em!"
When the manager of the Apa-
lachicola team sought to find help
from the few local boys remaining
whom Port St. Joe were unable to
hire, so that it could enter a game
with at least a 50-50 chance to win,
several ball players contacted
stated they had already been ap-
proached by Port St. Joe scouts
offering them "fat jobs" in the big
mill to play baseball, telling them
the paramount idea was to defeat
Now, L. G. B., you know better
than that, for if those .boys were
holding down those "fat jobs?" they
would ie earning their hire out on
the diamond. Looks like you have
magnified little Bennie Burke into
an entire team.

Apalachicola, would gladly chal-
lenge Port St. Joe to a series of
games-winner take all receipts-
each town playing only its own
We are sure that would suit Port
St.. Joe, 'and' we know that those
local Apalachicola boys. who played
so faithfully 'last year (without
pay) -would ,be tickled to death to
again Ibe on the -home team, even
after the way they have been cast
aside aby that small clique that is
controlling the police's of the Ap-
The trouble with such a game
would be that Port 6t. Joe could
not muster nine baseball players,
while half of the players now on
its team being Apalachicola boys,
would be an Apalachicola team.
We don't quite get that para-
graph, Ibut it 'looks as though Ben-
nie Buirke has again 'grown consid-
erably in stature. (Excuse us, Ben-
nie, for using you so much as a
horrible example, 'but you seem to
be the bone of contention.)
To the good fans of Port St. Joe
we would like to say that the
fans of Apalachicola consider the
Saints, especially the many Apa-
lachicola boys on it every one
of them a Van Johnson, a lothario.
L. G. 'B. seems to know you pretty
well. Bennie-take a bow. We'll
have to take another look at the
cgly mu.s of the rest o ycu guy:
A good suggestion to the baseball
czars of Port St. Joe is that they
move the "Belin" fence back 100
yards, We mention the Belin
fence as this fine young university
ball player is really the only Port
St. Joe boy on the team, the others
being a gathered group of players
sought out from far and near cor-
ners and cities, and hired to come
to Port St. Joe -and play baseball.
Oh, yes, we know. about the jobs in
the mill-we've been to school.
We didn't know Belin had played
on a university team, ibut if he did,
he didn't play for hire during the
summer vacation. As for the jobs
in the mill, L. G. B., you may have
been to school, ,but you apparently
learned very little, Ifor the interests
that operate the mill don't give two
soots in hades about the ball team.
And even if they d'id, they wouldn't
compel a man to play in order to
keeti) his job, as is being done, ,we
understand, -with one of the three
Apalachicola boys playing on the
Oyster City team. And, L.
G. B., you contradict yourself a bit.
First you assert positively and
without the shadow olf a doubt,
especially in the head on your ar-
ticle, "Apalach vs. Port St. Joe, Ac-
tually Apalach vs. Apalach," that
the Port St. Joe ball players come
from Apalachicola, and here you
juit as positively state that they
are 'sought out from far and near
corners and cities." My, my, L. G.
B.. such inconsistency!
We wish to assure Mayor Horace
Soule that he may banish his fears
in contemplating the umpiring of
ball games. We certainly would not
, go so far in personalities in our
criticism as The Star did in the in-
stance of Apalachicola's mayor,
who yielded to an urgent request
and umpired for our two teams as
beautiful a game as anyone ever
Mayor >Soule has better sense
than to attempt to umpire a 'game,
and as to the, criticism of Mayor
Owens voiced in The Star, it was
a just criticism, as some of your
good citizens of Apalachico'la will
admit, and it wasn't hidden behind
the anonymity of "A -Baseball Fan,"

Our Country D7.. Right or Wrong
THEY'RE ALL YOUR SIZE -
Our assistant told us breathlessly Saturday
that he heard the governor was in town. To
which we replied: "So what ?"
A lot of people believe all the tripe and
buncombe that circulates aboti the difference
in stature of their fellow beings, fawn on those
in high office, delight in being seen with them
and stoop to "boot-licking" in the hope of
currying favor or perhaps to hold a position
that is controlled by politics.
In this small puddle of Port St. Joe we have
our big frogs. In the pool of the state there
swim some pompous officials, and in the lake
of the nation there are some awful frumps.
Anyone who has ever heard, John.L. Lewis
beat on his chest and quote from the classics
knows what a big frog he thinks he is. And
some of our congressmen and senators-my,
oh, my, they've inflated themselves so with
their own egotism that they loom like blimps
above their more conservative fellows.
All of which is so much rot. The small-town
hypocrite who sets- himself apart from his
fellow men in an aura of touch-me-not sanc-
tity, the state officials who patronizingly visit
the provinces, the national officials who talk
down to the people-the kings, the dictators,
the generals, the congressmen, the labor
leaders, the prime ministers-all those for
whom press cameras click and whose words
are listened to as coming from authority-are
*no different than any of the rest.
We remember one time when we were at-
tending-the state fair at Sacramento, Calif.,
how horrified the congressman from our dis-
trict was when he presented us with tickets
for seats, on- the rostrum from which Gover-
nor Rolph was to speak, and we-informed-him
that we had much rather sit in the audience
with real people than on the stage with a
bunch of stuffed shirts.
It is extremely healthy to reflect that they
are all your size. Any common kitchen chair
will seat any one of them. Every one of them
was a red-faced baby that wet its pants,
couldn't talk, and was so helpless it couldn't
walk just a few years ago, letalone rise up on
its hind legs and rant of the great "I Am." Not
one of them is indispensable. Every one of
them will be gone a few years from now, and
our city, our state, our nation and the world
will rbck on even better than it is doing today.
Despite the genuflection (if you don't know
what that means, it's "worshipful bending of
the knee," or as we said above, "boot-licking")
the big talk, the "His Honors" and "Your Ex-
cellencies" that are cast their way, they are
no sow's ears magically changed to silk purses
but just plain ordinary human beings subject
to the bellyache and to an occasional pimple
on the nose.
Any one of them, like you and T, can be
scared stiff by a creature so insignificant that
you can't even see it without a microscope--
These are the birds who are running the
world, deciding what to do about the fates of
nations, pounding their chests as they decide
whether they will send one army against an-
other or tell a half million men whether to
strike or work. They include the professional
explainers who tell us what everything is all
about and what is good for us and what is
bad. and to listen to them you would think
that they were a different breed of dog than
the rest of us, sitting at the master's feet, with
a direct pipeline to the fount of knowledge,,
power and glo61y, which they patronizingly
pass on to us.
But there is one thing.about them that we
can all heartily admire-their gall.
