Wewa and Port St. Joe
Split Opening Games
County Seaters Take Sunday Tilt
and Saints Win Wednesday
Opening the Gulf Coast League
baseball season Sunday at Wewa-
hitchka, the Port St. Joe Saints lost
to the county seat team 2-1 in a 10-
inning fracas that saw some of the
best brand of ball exhibited in many
a moon, with but two errors chalked
up for the entire ten frames. Ye Ed
failed to get to the game and we
haven't received details from Geo.
Core, league secretary, but from the
mouths of spectators we hear it
really was a nip-and-tuck affair.
Jimmy Cox held the mound for the
Saints, with Bert (no relation) Cox
on the receiving end.
The season opened auspiciously
here Wednesday at the new ball
park when St. Joe took Wewa 4 to
3 behind the hurling of Davidson.
The visitors took the lead in the
first inning with one 'run, chalked
up another in the second and a
third counter in the fourth, mean-
while holding the Saints scoreless.
But in the fifth Fish Herring man-
aged to complete the circuit for the
first counter and in the lucky 7th
the boys put the game on ice with
three more runs by Bennie Burke,
Bucky Walters and Tom Mitchell,
the last two coming in on Belin's
Results of Sunday's opening tilts-
were: Blountstown 9, Panama City
4; Wewahitchka 2, Port St. Joe 1;
Apalachicola 5, Tallahassee 1.

Much work has been done on the
new grandstand the past-week, and
it is hoped to have it completed
in the next two or three weeks.
Meanwhile bleachers from the foot-
ball field are being used.
Bill Would Abolish
Fish and Game Unit
We don't know what Representa-
tive Wankard Pooser of Jackson
-county has in mind, but a measure
he introduced in the house and
which was approved by the house
constitutional amendments com-
mnittee, would abolish the state
game and fresh water fish commis-
Abolishment of the commission
would mean there would be no con-
trol over the taking of fish, and in
a few short years--with the 'game
hogs running rampant-our fish and
game would soon be but a memory.
We doubt that such a foolish bill
will ever be-approved by the legis-

Anti-Bookie Measure Is Now
Law; No-Fence Bill Is
Slashed By House
The Florida legislature was get-
ting a new grip on itself this
week, after a bookie bill again had
brought bribery charges similar to
those which wound up the 1947 ses-
The bribery disclosure came too
late, though, to stop passage of the
bill to put bookies out of business
by withholding telephone and tele-
graph privileges from known law
violators. It cleared the senate, af-
ter passage in the house, before
Senator C. L. Alford of Grand Ridge
charged that John Scruggs of Leon
county offered him $2000 to vote
against the bill. Scruggs' denied it
and the senate and Governor War-
ren recommended to Leon county
authorities that Scruggs be prose-
cuted. 'He was placed under arrest
and is now out on $2000 bond.
Wednesday the anti-bookie bill
became a law with Governor War-
Also up for final disposition this
week was the bill to ban livestock
from the highways of Florida. The
house apparently agreed over the
week-end to adopt a much milder
version of the no-fence law than the
senate had originally passed, mak-
ing it illegal only, for livestock to ,
be at large on "the tate highways
and withdrawing personal liability
of owners of livestock for the dam-
age they do and also making it pos-
sible only for sheriffs and other
law enforcement officers to im-
pound livestock. However, on Wed-
nesday the senate refused to con-
cur in the amendments, and by a
vote of 27 to 10 the house was asked
to recede from their amendments to
the bill. If the house refuses, the
measure will go to a joint confer-
ence committee to work out a com-

(Continued from page 1)
keep the state solvent after a sen-
ate finance and taxation committee
had voted unfavorably on the major
part of Governor Warren's 14 prin-
cipal tax measures, and the house
committee indicated that it felt the
s;game way about them but didn't
take any positive action. Governor
,Warren repeated his threat to veto
a sales tax if one- were passed, and
the strategists of the sales tax
camp were busy this week trying to
figure out some way of getting it
into law over his veto.
A hunt for communists in the
three institutions of higher learn-
ing started this week by a commit-
tee headed by Harry Botts Jr.; of
Pensacola. Two house resolutions
called for the investigation and
Speaker Perty Murray promptly
appointed a committee which will
be given the remainder of the ses-
sion to see if they can find com-
munist doctrines or teachings lurk-
.ing about the campuses of the Uni-
versity ,of Florida, Florida State
University, and Florida A. and M.
Regulation of privately owned
electric and gas utility companies
was drawing closer this week as
senate and house committees work-
ed hard to reach agreement on a
bill that would equalize rates for
electricity and gas in this state.
Senator James W. Moore of Se-.
bring and Representative Archie
Clement of Pinellas county headed
up groups that are apparently go-
ing to bring out a bill that will put
all utilities under the state railroad
and" public utilities commission,
which now regulates telephone and.
telegraph companies, truck and bus
companies, and the railroads and
As the legislature passed the
half-way mark, both the senate and
the house found that their pre-ses-
sion. attempts at streamlining com-
mittees had simply resulted in get-
ting too mnny,' men..n tqo..many
committees. As a.result,i th'e house
had called bn its members to re-
sign from at. least two of the seven
committees .o- which nearly every
member is trying to serve. And the
senate .also was preparing to take
steps to simplify its committee sys-
tem. For the first four weeks of
this session the committees had
struggled withWitop-heavy personnel
and the inability 4o get quorums.
And the result was that most of the
important legislation already intro-
duced has not been able to get
clearance from one or several com-
mittees in which it is buried.

Our Country l Right or Wrong
WHO IS TIRED OF FREEDOM?'
This country has had freedom for almost two
centuries. That freedom has permitted our citi-
zens to mold their own destinies. As a result we
are not only blessed with a fruitful life but have
developed into a nation which, more than any
other, follows the Golden Rule in the hope of
But like a blight that threatens the mightiest
stand of timber, socialism has been introduced
into the United States. This type of government-
alism leads people to believe that they will be
relieved of much of the burden of making a liv-
ing-that the government will be able to produce
and care for them. But no mention is made of
the increase in taxation caused by greater gov-
ernment spending. Paying the tax bill has placed
i constantly greater demand upon the citizen's
Individual opportunity has receded from its
crest in this country. Have the people lost sight
of the great heritage left to them? Are they: like
the boy who was given full freedom in the candy
*tore and donsequ'ehtly- made himself siil k- b
abusing it? The American people are headed for
a stomachache as they swallow bigger and big-
ger doses of socialism now being fed them in
sugar-coated form by Washington politicians,
We think slacks for women are'all right-if
-they're not too slack in the wrong places.
A real mother is the holiest thing alive. Next
Sunday, May 8, people all over the United States
will attend church somewhere honoring the
memory of her who has meant so much in their
lives, while others will attend as a marked cour-
tesy to her if she is living.
What rich memories the word "Mother" bring
to mind when unconsciously other days swim
before our vision when Mother stood between
us and the world, fighting valiantly for us, some-
times with her back to the wall.
If we were sick, is was always Mother who
never left our bedside, watching us closely for
any change. If we were hurt it was Mother who
soothed and comforted us, as only mothers know
how. It was Mother who always smoothed out
In looking back down through the years, it
was Mother who invariably made all the sacri-
fices in the family. She did without the dire ne-
cessities that we might have what we wanted.
Man has never had any better friend than his
Mother. No matter which way she turns, in a
dark hour of trouble, it is never herself of whom
she thinks-always of her daughter or son or
husband-doing what is best for them. Mothers
have been rated to be "a shelter in the time of
What other medium could ever replace a
Mother's love, solicitude and enduring patience?
Who else ever understands like Mother? There
is no other person in the world who deserves to
be honored and a special day on the calendar
set aside for her than Mother.
Flowers and candy will crowd the mails over
the week-end but Mothers all over the country
while appreciating the thoughtful -attention,
would like to know that another year has passed
and that her loved ones have understanding

Starke has his way. Last Friday ihe
senator introduced a bill in the sen-

from which he estimated would be

citizens of 60 years of age and over

County Schools Will

Estimate eased On Enrollment In-
crease and Contemplated
Gulf county has a heavy stake in
present legislative efforts to pro-
vide sufficient revenue to carry the
state minimum foundation program
forward, according to Thomas D.
Bailey, state school superintendent.
Bailey estimated Gulf county will
n. eed $30,854 more to operate the
' schools during 1950-51 than the
county now gets from the state.
That's allowing for increases in en-
rollment at the present state-wide
rate of approximately 5 per cent a
year, and for contemplated im-
provements- in teaching staffs and
During 1948-49 Gulf county re-
,ceived $161,984 under the state
Bailey has estimated state school
-needs for 1950-51 at a minimum of
$50,000,000-a minimum of $96,000,-
1000 for the coming two years. The
.appropriation of the full amount by
the legislature would provide for
an apportionment of state funds on
:such a basis that Gulf county would
get a sum approximately equal to
the estimated needs of the county.
If either the appropriation fails
or the revenue is not provided,
Bailey said the county would be
faced with the task of raising the
$30,854 from local funds or letting
the schools deteriorate.
'The $30,854 that the county will
plodably need for the second year
of The coming biennium is equal,
Bailey said, to a levy of 10.52.mills
for public tax-supported schools.
The county now levies 9.5 mills.
The constitutional limit is 20 mills.
