Myers baseball team is bringing with
him this afternoon a string of first
class ball players to' pit against the
locals and for the next three days Pa

Fort Myers comes to Palatka with
a record of having lost only three
games out of seventeen played. And
two of these defeats were by two of
the strongest teams in the state out
side of organized baseball; the Tampa
Cuban Giants and the Lakeland teams.
Captain DcLysle says of his team:
"We have a splendid team, the men
being all gentlemen. Four or five of
them will bring their wives with
them and there will be undoubtedly
ten or fifteen cars accompanying the
team from here."
Some of the members of this team
and last year manager of the Orlando
are: Donnelly, formerly of Lakeland
team, catcher; Monk, last year with
the Saint Louis Cardinals; Elrod,
formerly pitcher for Lakeland; Blount,
Davis and Rogers, also pitchers; Row-
lie Creiger, son of famous Lou Crei
ger, catcher for the Pittsburgh team,
first base for Lakeland last year;
Lightfoot, formerly with the Wyom
ing League, second base; Usher of
the Georgia State League, short stop;
Herrocks of the Lakeland team, third
base; Joe Rogers, left field for Lake
land last year; Moger, center field;
Stone, Stroup, and Montgomery,
Captain Barstow will pitch for the
locals this afternoon' There will be
several other changes in the line-up
of the locals. Villarino will be back at
his old position on short and Jack
son will be at the third sack. Hogan,
a new man who is well Tecommended
to the management, will appear in
uiform for the first time and will
probably play one of the outfield positions.
SOCIAL A BIG
The second inter-church social
given under the auspices of the Pa
latka Community Service was held
last night at the Woman's Club. A
large and enthusiastic crowd took ad
vantage of this opportunity to sing
and play the old' fashioned social and
recreative games that mean so much
to the health and well being of all.
The program was planned and di
rected by the Philatheas of the Pres
byterian church with Mrs. C. E. 0'
Conner chairman of the committee.
She was ably assisted by Mrs. J. H.
Millican and Fred Merrill. The enter
tainment was opened by singing, but
until the Baptist Philatheas marched
in in a body. Each was tagged with
a card designating their class. The
singing was led by Neegly Teeters and
Charles Bennett. Mrs. E. L. Mann
accompanied on the piano. The fea
ture of the singing was a number of
the old rounds, among which were,
"Scotland's Burning," and "Three
Blind Mice". A number of circle and
folk games were then played all of
which caused much amusement.
During the intermission the guests
were entertained with two very charm
ing solos rendered by Mrs- Frank
Logan, accompanied by Mrs. R. S.
The evening closed with that fam
ous old nursery game that has gain
ed so much favor at these socials,
"Leeby Lee"- Dixie was then sung
and the guests disbanded after giving
a rousing cheer for the Presbyterian
Philatheas whose social all agreed
was a hugh success. Announcement
was made of the next church socal
that is to be held in two weeks with
the Methodists in charge.

Washington, May 31. Postal pro
hibitions against the Milwaukee Lead
er and New York Call, two socialist
newspapers, were withdrawn today by
Postmaster General Hayes, who re
stored them to second class mailing
privileges. The action was in line
wit hthat recently taken in the case
of the Liberator, a periodical pub
lished in New York City-
Orders cancelling the second class
mail privileges of the publication were
issued by Postmaster General Burle
son late in 1917, after an inquiry in
which Mr. Burleson said had shown
that through articles published each
had violated provisions of the espion
The Liberator successor to the
Masses, ceased publication soon af
terwards, the publishers announcing
they were unable to bear the addi
tional burden imposed by the third
class rate. Both the Leader and the
Call carried their fight to the courts.
The Milwaukee paper, upon refusal
of the supreme court of the District
of Columbia to issue a writ of man
damus to compel the postmaster gen
eral to restore the cancelled privi
leges, applied to to the supreme court
of the United States where the lower
court was upheld.

ovens during the winter and beneath
there is generally a space for a few
pigs or calves. We were up thero for
twenty-four hours and the lieutenant

Lenine Most Popular
"My information about Russia was
gathered from the influx and out
flow of the prisoners in the various
prison camps where I was stationed
and also from the peasants whom I
met during the winter when I worked
on railroads entering Moscow and
during my escape.
"Lenine is still the most popular
man in Russia today and his personal
following far outnumbers Trotsky- He
is idolized and his pictures are found
in every conceivable place. Other pic
tures and posters bear quotations from
his speeches which are accepted by
the peasants 'like the gospel', as the
negroes say in Florida."
According to Captain Cooper travel
ers in Russia today will see two pic
tures of Lenine to every one of Trot
sky. A favorite poster is one depict
ing Karl Marx in the center and
flanked with two smaller pictures of
the Russian leaders. Trotsky, Cooper
declares, has not the confidence of the
masses of the people that Lenine has,
and many persons expressed the opin
ion that the biggest single factor hold
ing the Russian government today is
Lenine's personal prestige.
"The propaganda section is another
of the few efficient branches of the
government. There is scarcely a per
son with whom I talked in Russia who
is not more or less affected by this
propaganda. At the present time
among the workers and the peasants
there is a bitter hatred against the En
tente. Wherever I have ibeen the Allies
are pictured on posters as being the

and with this we finished the trip.
"The most exciting moment came
about three days out of Moscow while
we were waiting by the railroad for
a freight to pass. Two guards came
alog and we had to lie in a ditch full
of icy water for two hours while
they talked of the probability of a
trade. Another time that I was scared
was when we were lying on top of one
of the big heating ovens in the home
"There are no laws in Russia to
day, and the Government is enforced
by decrees. And the decrees are en
forced by the Revolutionary con
science' of the Communist party. As
for the party, it is the real aristocracy
of Russia today and it is one of the
most exclusive organizations' which
have ever been organized in Russia.
"The party is not composed of work
ing people, for whenever a working
man is admitted he either takes a po
litical or a military job- The party
members distinguish themselves from
the rest of the population by either
wearing a badge with 'the Communist
emblem embroidered or a revolver on a
Sam Brown belt. As members of the
party are the only persons in Russia
permitted to wear revolvers the Com
