Florence Morning News (Newspaper) - May 24, 1955, Florence, South CarolinaPage 6 the Florence morning news Florence s. A May 24. 1955 Jimmie in two workouts manager Fred Holland and directors of the Florence athletic Assn. Have seen a lot of hustling kids they d like to see wearing a Florence uniform this sum Mer when it comes time to open up the Palmetto league season. But before they can use any of them they be got to find some Way for the lads to make a living during the Day while they play Ball at night. It goes without saying that a Man can t do a full Day s manual labor and then be expected to give his Best at night but there will be three Days out of each week when they won t play Ball at All and on the Days they do play they could give five or six Good Ideal situation for these lads would be a lot of pay for Little work but they Aren t looking for the enough to meet their room Board and laundry expenses and have a Little left Over this fall when they go Back to school. These Fellows would provide especially Good help around service stations laundries dry goods houses and the like. Hemingway Lake City and Mullins can work most of their boys in tobacco markets while Georgetown has a lot of jobs in a big paper Mill to handle its imported Talent. Sumter is the Only other town in the league with the same problem As Florence and it is not As bad there because a number of the jets come Shaw Field and get their checks from Uncle Sam. Businessmen who hire these lads will be adding the finest kind of people to their staffs. An indication As to their character came out saturday when we had supper with the group of six that came up from Georgia. After the meal had been spread on the table of a local restaurant they All bowed their Heads while one of them asked Grace. We were almost As surprised at such action on the part of teen agers As was Pete Hyman one of the club s directors. After finishing they All told the waitress How much they had enjoyed their meal. Most of the boys who play Ball Here this summer will be these Young collegians a lot of them on partial athletic scholarships and with a big desire to get an education any thing they can Bank this summer will be used toward that end employing these youngsters would by no Means be a measure of Charity and we firmly believe that anyone who possibly can but fails to make a Job for one of them will be missing out on a most pleasant experience. In addition we d like to suggest that All the people o Florence and All other league towns do everything thes can to make the summer visit the Best they can for the youths. We think you la find them not Only an asset to then employers but a Blessing to the Community and the Whol pee Dee As Well. From limb to limb Jimmy Calcutt was among the gallery that followed the Battle Between Sammy Russell and Jimmy Clemmons for the Florence country club championship sunday and must have enjoyed walking around the course for a change it s at the acc where Jimmy who s training now for his May 31 fight with Pappy Gault does his Early morning run Ning.

Discussing the game played by Russell and Clem Mons afterwards pro Grant Bennett and this Bird figure this was the Day Russell should have been play my m the masters. His Hook would t have gotten him m As much trouble because the fairways Are wider and his Long me Are just about what a fellow needs along with a lot of experience and putting ability to get anywhere on the Long Augusta National.
