Kinston's pitcher had a slightly better record, having twelve strike-outs on us. Both teams had five errors and two stolen bases. Kinston had six hits compared to our seven. Kinston wasthe first to score, as they pulled in their only run in the first inning. Florala's scores were made by Melvin Mathews, in thethird inning, and Be Caraway, in the sixth. The Samson game, played here April 18, was perhaps the most exciting game all season. In the first inning Samson got one run ahead of us, but in the second inning Victor Burns started a rally of hits and runs, as it was in this inning that we scored six times. Samson scored at least one run in each of the following innings. However, with the ex- ception of the first inning, we stayed ahead of our opponent throughout the game until the sixth inning. When the seventh inning was over the score was tied at thirteen to thirteen, so the game went into an eighth inning. In this final inning, Samson scored two runs. When it came Florala's turn to bat, we scored once and had the bases loaded when we re- ceived our last out, lacking one AND AL USI A OF EDUCATION ~s Cortez Ann M. Dalton Wayne B.

JIM ALLEN R El'OR IN The tremendous tornado which swept through Alabama and a number of other states dealt Alabama its cruel- est blows as il moved through the land, laying waste every- thing before it. When the tornado hit Ala- bama, 1 was at my Virginia residence, but by 8:30 the next morning 1 had sent messages of sympathy, encouragement and offers of assistance back home, had called on the Presi- dent to declare Alabama a dis- aster area for Federal assis- tance, and had started seeking to expedite the work of Fed- eral disaster relief agencies. The following morning I re- turned by plane to Alabama to be with our stricken people, to offer encouragement and moral support and to assist in any way that I possibly could While 1 wanted to visit all who had lost loved ones or who were injured or who had lost all of their possessions, this was impossible, i was able over parts of three da~s to visit Jasper, Guin, Moulton, Tanner, Athens, Decatur, and Huntsville and inspect the dam- age in those areas. Many had lost everything they had - their loved ones and all of their possessmns How sad it was, how heavy my heart was. How cruel fate has been. But then as 1 looked closer, my heart was uplifted. Peo- ple were sad, they were dazed by the tragedy, but they were not demoralized. And every- one was helping, dedicated men, women, boys and girls anxious to be of service. People were bringing in food and clnthmg, and neighbors were inviting vic- tims into their homes. Cloth- ing and food were coming in by the truck load from kind peo- ple from without our state. I saw dozens of houses already being rebuilt or re- roofed. REA, TVA and Alabama Power personnel were restoring elec- tric service everywhere. Tem- porary housing in the form of mobile homes and HUD hous- es, food stamps and unemploy- ment compensation were made available. Officers were being set up to make long-term low interest rate loans. Never have I seen our peo- ple morn united. Never have I seen a better spirit among our people Never have I seen our people more dedicated or more determined or more wil- ling to share, to give of their means and to give of themselves to use above adversity. And as I meditated on the tra- gedy and its aftermath I thought of the tremendous force of the tornado and of the fact that man has unleashed weapons of des- truction and of great force. But how puny are man's oow- wars when compared with the forces of nature, which is but another way of saying as com- pared with God's power. And I thought that if we unite naturally and automatically in the face of tragedy can we not unite as a people in tranquil. peaceful times as well?
