Kenneth Bateman Home
Badly Damaged By Fire
Friday morning about 10:00 a.m.
the home of Mr. land Mrs. Kenneth
Balteman on 13th Street was gutted
by fire of an undetermined origin.
About 10:00 Mrs. Bateman sqnel-
led smoke in the house and started
to investigate. Upon going into one
of the bedrooms of the house she
located the blaze in the attic of
the house. The fire had already
gained such headway that chunks
of burning ceiling were calling into
the room. Mrs. Bateman busied her-
self with getting the Bateman's,
two young daughters out of the
house and sounding the fire alarm.
The fire had gained such headway
that by the time it was discovered
it was impossible to get any of the
furnishings or clothing out.
Although the house was not com-
pletely burned down, every room
suffered fire damage with the worse
damage being in the living room,
dining room and kitchen area's.
Nothing was salvaged in the way
of household furnishings and cloth-
ing. A plea started Friday after-
noon by local radio station WJO'E

From where I sit, children aren't
the only ones who "repeat things"
without knowing what they're

tore off the wrapper and went to

to her community-and she employ-
ed the immeasurable width and the
xepanse of her art and her keen in-
tellect in giving so graciously of
her sweet service.
When the winds blow through
the magnificent oak trees on her
old home plaqe in Oak Grove they
will be sighing for their mistress
-and when the raindrops glimmer
through their bountiful, sheltering,
leafy limbs, they will be tears for
their mistress-who has cared for
them so many years-and so ten-
derly. Hers was the beautyspot, the
flowering beautyspot of this little
Community, done, for the greater
part,, by her own loving hands.
Mrs. Patton's aream for the fu-
ture of Port :St. Joe, which she en-
visioned and initiated from the be-
ginning, to gro into a garden spot
-was to see a riotiously colored
ravine of azaleas all abloom along
our graceful 'new 18th street, for-
merly known as Patton's Bayou,
sloping down to the water's edge.
In appreciation to her, let's 'make
this dream of hers come true. Gar-
den clubbers, civic workers-can't
you find a way! She would have,
had it been her lot to -have remain-

I feel quite sure Sam -Walter Foss'

mind when he created' his famous
lines, as I know of no one to whom
they more aptly apply:
