The two clubs won 4 games each and lost one during the first round of the Navy league which is composed of seven teams. The pressure was on the Bronson cluithis week. Trailing by one game at the end of the first round, the Bombers were called upon to defeat the strong Whiting field team- to stay in the running. It was a tough assignment since Bobble Fox, former Tennessee star had been inserted Into the Whiting lineup. The Bombers trimmed their opponents 8 to 3 and won the right to face Faufley in the playoff which will be for one game only. The win was particularly significant since Bronson is also the defending champions of the league. Five of last year's championship clubs, which was good enough to defeat Waldron field of Corpus Chrlsti. are on the present team. They are: Ted Williams, Bob Kennedy, Pete Petrich, Lonnie Heina and Tom Lindsay.

Scott, member of the state board of control, commenting on -the report issued this week following a joint legislative committee's investigation of charges of extravagance and laxity in the operation of the University of Florida, expressed satisfaction that it "sustains 12 out of the 14 charges which I presented." "My interest in this matter, Scott asserted, "has been based purely and simply on my desire that the young men of the state should have the best possible advantages at the universiy. i Scott said: . "It has been my constant aim to aid in the development of the universityand other institutions under direction of the board of control. I have done everything I could to promote that development, and have supported appropriations and programs, calculated to improve the facilities and work of the university. v ; T have favored the providing of all necessary funds, with due consideration of the taxpayers' interests and I have never favored a niggardily support of the Institution. " : "On the other hand,' I have opposed ; wastefulness and extrava-gance, in the operation of "the university just as with other state in stitutions. I have felt, and still feeLi that the taxpayers of Florida take great prfde in these institutions, and want them adequately provided for. . "I do not feel, however, that wastefulness or extravagance in their operations should go un-noted, any more than in any other single activity or expenditure of public money." Bees sometimes go five miles after food, but the usual maximum distance is about a mile. - i THE OLD JUDGE SAYS. . Mm . a- r i V 1 ! v X GEORGE: "Yes, I certainly would like to hear .why you call that an old fashioned idea, Judge." ; , OLD JUDGE: "Glad to tell you. George. Until recently, a person known 'at an alcoholic was generally treated as a social outcast. Little if anything was done to understand him or help him. But, during the past few years, medical research and study has developed that alcoholics are really sick people ... that there is usually a deep-rooted physical, social or emotional reason behind their behavior. That's why today so much is being done to help them by finding out and correcting the condition that leads " them to excess." i GEORGE: "How many folks are there like that. Judge? i-OLD JUDGE:" Well, according to scientific research. 95 of the people who drink; drink sensibly,-5 do so unwisely, at times. Included in that 5 is the small percentage of the sick people I'm talking about." i GEORGE: "That certainly 'gives me a clearer picture. It's the most sensible approach I've ever heard on the subject." rj adrttiistmtnt tponsrrti hy Cnjrrtnc mf AUtltoltr Brrtfmit Industrial, In CARDINALS WHIP BRAVES BOSTON, May 17. ;P Ken O'Dea's fifth inning . double with three men on put the game on Ice for the St. Louis Cardinals today as they took the Boston Braves 7 to 4.
