Have you been to a ball game
lately? The Saints are a good
team and have some good oppo-
sition. Strictly home town tal-
ent is being used by all teams
and in many cases high school
boys are playing on teams. Let's
see now, we have 1) good games
2) a home town team and S3
good opposition. That fills .al
the requirements that local peo-
ple stated they wanted to see.
Still the ball club is not getting
the support it deserves. Granted
the schedule so far has been sort
of slip shod-but that is explained
by the fact that a good many
of the players are members of
the National Guard, which has
been on maneuvers. The sche-
dule will be fairly consistent for
the remainder of the season and
each game will be posted on the
sign boards up town for your
You wait means of relaxation,
so get this relaxation and a good
time by coming out and watch-
ing the Saints do their stuff.
Brother, brother, it has been
hot. We have tried everything to,
make it rain. Nearly washed the
paint off the car, went .off for
a couple of hours and left the
windows open, watered the flow-
ers and other such sure-fire me-
thods of bringing on cool show-
Have you noticed anything
different about some of the men
in town lately? There's a differ-
ence. They're eating in the cafe,
going to work with a slight stub-
ble on their chins, have a hun-
gry look on their face, and dish
pan hands. The only thing wrong
with them is that their wives
are. off visiting "Mama". Doc-
tor Wesley Grace, the eye doc-
tor, is-the latest addition to this
lan. We have been a member
of this clan for the past few
weeks but we will shed the trap-

One woman todk us literally
last week when we said the bak-
ery was in back of our print
shop. She came in and asked-us
how to get back to the bakery.
Guess we should have said that
it was in the building in back
of the Star building.
Concerning our little spiel the
other week about the heating
plant in the Elementary School
building, school board member
J. B. Harris said that-they had
discussed the matter at their
last meeting. He didn't say what
they decided but thev discussed
it. We didn't mean to sound cri-

but-it just doesn't seem like the
Fourth anymore. When w"v
were kids, the Fourth meant
firecrackers. Now they are ban-

of the nation.

If we were one of the legisla-

American custom was receiving
a kick in the pants.
By the time the civic clubs
and the City gets through, this
town is going to be "broke. out"
with play grounds and recrea-
tional facilities. We say bully

better place to live in for them.

Twenty-two people who are look-
ing forward this morning to the
pleasures of the Fourth of July
weekend will be dead Monday
night as a result of accidents, if
'the state's usual average for a three
day holiday is maintained. The fig-
ures came from Asher Frank, -Di-
rector of the Florida Safety Coun-
cil. Eleven will be killed in traffic,
along with 400 others injured. Six
will drown. Five will succumb to
the effects of over-exertion.
Will you be one of tlem? It's a
grim notion, but worth thinking
about. The tragedy of the holiday
accident toll is that practically all
of it is due to plain carelessness
and can be prevented. It cannot be
prevented by authorities handing
out tickets, it seems, nor by the

be prevented only if every person
who gets behind the wheel makes
a conscious effort to drive with
care and watch out for the other
fellow who may not.
Other holiday accidents can be
prevented if every man, woman or
child who goes swimming or en-
gages in unusually strenuous play
observes the simple, common-sense
rules of safety. One is not to swim
too far out and it applies to good
swimmers as well as poor ones,
nor to swim all alone. Grown-ups
who should know better are prone
to these accidents. Children need

STILL PAYING FOR INDEPENDENCE
This Fourth of July places the United States
practically in the same position as it was when
the independence of this nation was won.
At the outset of the history of this nation
as a free nation, a group of farmers and small
businessmen armed with ancient muskets, rifles,
blunderbusses, kniyes, clubs and any weapon
that could cause bodily harm to their enemies
against what was then, the greatest, most mo-
dern and up-to-date army of that time, armed
with the latest weapons and methods of des-
truction known to the warfare of that period.
The Americans atom bomb of the period was
its intense desire for freedom at any cost;
The Americans had a tough battle. They-
were considered as a nation of backward, igno-
rant people by the so-called civilized world of
that time, a group. of men unworthy of an all-
out military effort on the part of the British,
thus our independence was won. Our indepen-
dence has been kept because an enemy has
never been able to estimate our full capability.
Today we have practically a perfect fac-
similie of this position. At the end of the
war the United States inaugurated its various
plans of aid to set ravaged countries back on
their feet economically. The enemy thought
it couldn't be done (along with some Ameri-
cans) without plunging the country into bank-
ruptcv. So the enemy set back for a time and
waited for the collapse the collapse which
never came. So now the enemy is using other
tactics to beat this nation to its knees. But
the enemy is being met in all quarters by wea-
pons possibly crude but very effective just as
in the days of the birth of this country.
At this term of the birth of our independ-
ence, Winston Churchill has said of America,
"It is evident by all the peoples of Europe 'that
had it not been for the United States, Europe
would now be bankrupt'".
Thomas Jefferson, one of the greatest of
Americans offered the opinion that it would not
be advisable for the United States to get in a
position of having a number countries indebted
to us for their very existence as the situation
would soon result in jelousy and eventually into
hatred. Jefferson offered this advise during the
nation's infancy, when it was on the verge of
bankruptcy itself. Jefferson had an immense
faith in the future of the nation because of the
principles that it was founded on.
Today we must echo Jefferson's faith.
DID WE BUY OR SELL
It may be a long time before we know who
promised what to whom in the cozy week end
White House chats of President Eisenhower,
Prime Minister Churchill, Secretary of State
Dulles, Foreign Minister Eden and a handful of
Probably not since the war of 1812 have
the views of London and Washington been
more divergent, and it would be a grim outlook
indeed if thetalks failed to bring the two nations
closer together. However, judging by Teheran
Yalta and Potsdam, the concessions at such talks
have been largely furnished by us in the past.
Thus, it may be just as well that Mr. Eden
revealed to the House of Commons, just before
leaving for Washington, his plan for a South
East Asian non-aggression agreement between
the West and Red China. Forewarned, those
who speak for us may have stood firm against
seeking worthless Red promises and at the
price of Red recognition.
But we'd feel easier if that Bricker Amend-
ment had been passed.

CATFISH VS. TROUT-The bat-
tle of the fishes is on. Which makes
the best- eating, cat fish or rain-
bow trout? Southerners in Wash-
ington say "catfish" but people
from the western part of the U. S.
have been crying "trout". The ar-
gument reached the boiling (or fry-
ing) point several weeks ago at
an informal luncheon group made
up of congressmen, their adminis-
trative assistants and friends, who
gather each week at Rector's res-
taurant on Capitol Hill. To prove
their side of the controversy, each
group agreed Lo feed tie other the
"right way." From California was
flown -a mess of rainbow trout-
and all agreed they were delicious;
Last week, Carl Wiselogel, Pana-
ma City, sent 20 pounds of Flor-
ida's "finest" to Merrill Winslei',
administrative -assistant to Con-
gressman Bob Sikes. Winsle. .is
champion of the cat fish eaters.
After he had fed his friends, he
said, "The only thing tha: was
settled definitely was that both
kinds of fish were -so delicious
. the letters start. Then from all
over the free world come such com-
ments as these from readers of THE
