GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE

To the Senate and House of Representatives of the Florida Legis-
lature:
My Fellow-Workers for Florida:
Section 9 of Article 4 of the Constitution of Florida requires
that the Governor shall communicate by message to the Legisla-
ture at each regular session information concerning the condi-
tion of the state and recommend such measures as he may deem
expedient. The duty that this Constitutional mandate imposes
upon me is also, I assure you, both a privilege and a pleasure.
I obey it with due appreciation of the honor which is mine in
presenting it, and, with your indulgence, I prefer to attempt the
performance of this Executive duty by appearing before your
joint bodies in person. The spirit of the Constitution coordin-
ates the work of our Executive and Legislatvie departments and
dedicates that work to the common good. It is with the spirit
of a co-worker, in which I here stand before you, and that spirit
is not only Constitutional, but is to me distinctly agreeable.
You appreciate as well as I that there is a very definite demand
for a complete change in certain of our governmental affairs-
a new set up in governmental functions- a new era in the re-
lationship and stewardship which the instrumentalities of gov-
ernment must bear to the people who are governed. Also that a
different, a more cooperative, and a more definite attitude on
the part of some toward their government must be inculcated.
More and more we must all be brought to feel and to under-
stand that government cannot relieve us as individuals from
the innate personal obligations of frugality, industry, and good
husbandry-that we must not expect to get more out of govern-
ment than we are willing to put into it.
Selfish considerations must be completely eliminated in an
honest effort to put the common good before all else. Unless
you, of the legislative branch of the government, cooperate with
this fundamental patriotism always in mind, there can be no
restoration to even normal conditions. As evidence of my de-
sire to help you find the way out of our troubles which can be
found in sound legislation, I pledge you the closest and fullest
cooperation which it is possible for me to give.
. This is no time for political bickering. Politics should be
banished from our consideration of the grave problems which
we have to meet. We are in the midst of a national crisis.
Florida as a part of the nation is affected. In addition, we have
in our own internal problems a situation intensely acute. Pres-
ident Roosevelt has boldly shown the way to the nation and
Congress has worked with him in the solution of national prob-
lems. Without presuming in any manner to classify myself
as an equal of our great national leader, I do ask that you, with-
in all Constitutional grounds, work with me in the solution of
our state problems.
At the outset, I hope you will join me in the determination
to complete within the shortest adequate time the many tasks
which we have jointly to perform. Long sessions place unusual



hardships upon the members of the Legislature. They prolong
the suspense and uncertainty which the people and business
in particular feel until it becomes definitely known what new



April 4, 1933



laws are to govern. In addition, the expense to the people is
made greater at a time when we all know that no added or
unnecessary burden should be tolerated. By a sincere, earnest
application to the matters at hand, we can in a short space of
time do the things that are necessary to be done.
ECONOMY

In the campaign which resulted in your election and mine, we
were pledged to an immediate and adequate economy. I assume
therefore that you and I are in complete accord on the urgent
necessity and the immediate enactment of such a program. In
accordance with my constitutional duty, I am advising you as
to methods for obtaining drastic reductions and retrenchments
at once in the cost of the government. The first real problem
which must be solved before we can return to a condition of
normalcy in our state is giving to the people an economical
government-state, county and municipal. I do not mean an
indiscriminate, unreasonable cutting of public expenditure which
might be entered into under the influence of an hysteria which
demands cuts in expenditures regardless of consequences. Rather
I would suggest an intelligent, constructive and discriminating
economy, preserving the good, while eliminating the bad, giv-
ing the people a dollar's worth of service wherever a dollar is
spent and seeing that the service given is indispensable to the
people's welfare.
Certain economies have already been effected through the power
of the executive, affecting the state government. Some of them
might appear drastic but the situation demanded drastic action.
Much time and attention has been given to the study of the
cost of county government. Economies here I have encouraged
and urged in every way possible. In county after county the
cost of government has already been materially lowered. With
your legislative help and with the continued Executive assist-
ance, by positive act wherever possible and at all times by pre-
cept, much more can and will be accomplished. Except by ex-
ample, the State has been of little assistance as yet to the cities
and municipalities. But by example at least, it has brought home
to those governmental agencies that only by rigid economy-that
economy which cuts to the bone and brings the government back
to the people-can there be an approach to the solution of our
and their many problems. I cannot too often repeat, or too for-
cibly say that economy is the first step in all our problems, be
they state, county or municipal. You and I cannot evade re-
sponsibility, nor should we desire so to do. If there ever was
a time when the chosen leaders of a people owe it to that people
to meet responsibility and enforce by legislative enactments or
by executive action or by any other means at their disposal, an
economy which will give real relief to the people,that time is at
hand. Addressing you as a Floridian who loves his state, speak-
ing to Floridians whose patriotism and courage have been ap-
proved by people who know you best, I call upon you to meet this
greatest of all our problems with courage and patriotism, heed-
ing not the selfishness of the few and remembering that we are
the servants only of the many-the rank and file who elected us
to represent them and whose taxes we are called upon to levy,
collect and spend.
Again let me repeat, I cannot too strongly stress the need of
economy. Many of our local governments are in financial distress.
Public treasuries are drained to the bottom. The condition of
our people; your people-my people-the people we tax, is de-
plorable. Men and women who were formerly happily employed,
today are with their children dependent upon public or private
relief. Farmers and home-owners are striving to save their farms
and homes from mortgages and excessive tax burdens. Private
business, big and little, is fighting for its very existence.
STATE FINANCIAL CONDITION

By reference to the first twenty pages of financial tables, some
of which are shown for the first time in the budget prepared for
this session of the Legislature, a financial picture, readable and
understandable, is presented. Your careful study of these tables
is earnestly urged. I would call to your attention that, although
the State village asked for in the present budget is one-quarter
of a mill more than for the previous biennium, the revenue to be
derived from the suggested 51/s mills is expected to yield $340,000
less in revenue than was received from the 4% mill levy for the
past biennium. This difference will be caused by existing eco-
nomic conditions. The State net deficit for the general revenue
fund for the fiscal year ending June 30th, 1932, was $859,013.28.
The State owes approximately $430,000 principal and interest to



banks and $112,500 is due the State school fund. There is also
due in bills created prior to January 1st, 1933 by the state Road
Department more than $2,500,000. The financial structure and



JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
















condition of the state is receiving the very serious study and
attention of your Chief Executive. There is gradually being in-
stalled a system of records and accounting in all State depart-
ments, which will enable the Cabinet, the Legislature and the
public to know the true status of our financial affairs at all times.
This has heretofore been impossible.
FIRST DUTY TO BALANCE THE BUDGET
The first major task which confronts the Legislature is to bal-
ance the state budget and to do it without seeking additional
revenue. The Legislature is respectfully urged and requested to
begin its labors at once upon the appropriation bill. It is neces-
sary, in order to know how much money we have got to have,
to know how much money we will have to spend through general
appropriations. Therefore, it is necessary to dispose of the ap-
propriation bill as promptly as possible, so that we may know
how much money we will have to raise from the taxpayers. You
have had the budget before you for three weeks. On the opening
day of this session the appropriation bill is ready for presentation
and instant consideration. Never before in the history of the
State have these documents been before the Legislature on its
opening day. The appropriation act sets the foundation for a bal-
anced budget. If the Legislature should contemplate still more
drastic reductions, it is respectfully urged that great caution
be exercised in order that impairment, injustice, unfairness and
inefficiency may not result. No new boards, bureaus, commis-
sions or offices of any kind or character are requested. It has
been constructed with the idea in view that for once the State
will live within its income, just as the private individual in Flor-
ida and elsewhere has been forced to learn that he must live
within his income. There may be people who will cry for larger
tax collections instead of smaller tax expenditures, but I beg you
to be mindful of the fact that it makes no difference from which
pocket of the taxpayer you take his dollar, it is still the same
taxpaying dollar, and it is still his dollar which you are taking.
I will not on this occasion repeat the publicity already given the
details of the appropriation bill. I urge you to study it carefully
and to pass upon it promptly. In line with the economies which
this appropriation bill carries, but apart and beside it, there
are many sources of saving where the Legislature itself must take
action. I will mention a few of these.
REDUCE LICENSE TAG COST
There should be a reduction in the costs of license tags to the
people who own motor vehicles. We have already passed the
saturation point in the license tag cost on this class of property.
I recommend that a reasonable tax, such as a $5.00 and $10.00
basis, dependent upon some stated weight of the car, be enacted
by this Legislature. The high license tag charges have driven
thousands of our cars off the highways and with the reduction in
the cost of the tags, I am convinced that many thousands of
motor vehicles would go back into use, thus giving an increase
to the volume of gasoline used and a consequent increase in the
proceeds of the gasoline tax. The duty of distributing motor
vehicle license tags should be placed upon the county tax col-
lector and wherever the increased amount of money handled by
him warrants such action, bonds of these officers should be pro-
portionately increased to protect his collections. I recommend
the present excessive penalty for failure to purchase license tags
on time be abolished.
CONSERVATION DEPARTMENT
While I shall at a later time have more to say about consoli-
dation of present boards, bureaus and offices and the abolition
of some which I consider unnecessary, I desire to recommend to
you now the consolidation of the Boards of Geology, Forestry,
Fish and Game Commission and Shell Fish Commission into one,
to be known as the "Conservation Department." This has been
done in many states advantageously to the people, both from the
standpoint of economy and efficiency.
JUDICIAL CIRCUITS
There is a general demand throughout the State for a re-
duction in the number of circuits and circuit judges. This de-
mand should no longer be ignored. We all recognize the justice
and common sense of the demand. With this in view and in order
to be helpful as far as possible in solving this complicated ques-
tion, I have had extensive data collected and prepared for your
use which is ready to be submitted immediately. I recommend
the formation of a special joint committee from the Senate and



House to consider this matter and to formulate appropriate leg-
islation. In addition, I recommend that the duty be placed upon
State Attorneys to compile information for the use of the Courts,



7



so that Grand Juries would be called only at the direction of the
Court, when and as actually necessary to the proper functioning
of that body. I further recommend that Grand Juries be reduced
in the number of personnel from eighteen to fourteen.
In this connection and related thereto, I strongly urge and
recommend:
First, a statute limiting Justice of the Peace and Constables to
not exceeding two in any one County.
Second, the submission of a Constitutional Amendment abolish-
ing these offices.
PENSIONS
We have a total of 1941 pensioners on the roll of the Pension
Board of our state, 248 of whom are soldiers on the regular roll,
while 28 soldiers are on the roll by special act of the Legislature.
There are 1575 widows on the pension roll who have been put on
through the regular procedure and 90 widows who have been
placed upon the roll by special acts of the Legislature. This pen-
sion roll has never been carefully examined or kept up to date.
It is but natural that abuses should have crept into the adminis-
tration and payment of our pensions. I am sure that you agree
with me that any soldier or the widow of any soldier who ren-
dered bona fide military service to the State is entitled to receive
a pension, but this pension roll should be purged of those who
are reaping the benefit of its abuses and your body should take
action to see that this is done.

GAS TAX
The proceeds from all forms of taxation have been so reduced
by economic conditions that even after accomplishing the econo-
mies outlined in the budget, it will be necessary for you to con-
tinue as an emergency measure for two years the additional one
cent gasoline tax, as this is an essential portion of the general
revenue fund. To take its place there would be required an
additional levy of over five mills in the ad valorem tax. I recom-
mend that you give immediate consideration to the passage of
such legislation.
When questions of economy are considered, it should be kept
in mind that blind economy is often more costly than blind ex-
travagance. This session of the Legislature should take the neces-
sary action to protect and preserve the investment that the peo-
ple of Florida have made in their highways. Licensed carriers
are now permitted to carry a limited load but the unlicensed,
unregulated operators are operating on a different weight scale
with the result that our highways are being subject to ruinous
use. There should be a uniform maximum load based upon the
ability of the highways to stand this stress and this maximum
should be applicable to all motor trucks whether public or pri-
vate, licensed or unlicensed. Highway freight trains should be
eliminated from the highways by limiting the overall length and
width of vehicles and combination of vehicles. The speed at which
maximum truck loads may travel should likewise have your care-
ful attention, for it is fundamental that the speed at which a
heavy load travels determines also its wear and tear upon the
road. No road is strong than its weakest part. We have in-
"- vested over $200,000,000 to build roads. They cannot be replaced,
and unless we protect them by a complete and adequate regula-
tion of the loads which they are called upon to bear, we will have
in less than a decade a system of highways which will have been
destroyed through our lack of forethought and action. It is purely
a matter of common sense. You owe it to the people to enact
such legislation as will protect this tremendous investment.
The present allocation of the gasoline tax to the Counties and
the Road Department should not be disturbed. We must protect
the good name of the State by paying the actual indebtedness of
over two and one-half million dollars heretofore incurred by the
State Road Department prior to this administration. We are also
confronted with the fact that we found, upon assuming our of-
fice, contracts entered into by the old Board amounting to
$6,136,170.22, of which $3,400,000.00 will be furnished by the
Federal Government and $2,736,170.72 must be paid by the State.
It is further of vital importance that the state's investment in
roads should be preserved and maintained. Careful consideration
of the matter shows that $3,335,503.14 will be required annually
for the proper maintenance and repairs of the roads which we
now have.
SCHOOLS

A matter of equal major importance with which you will have
to deal is the question of our educational system. There has been



much discussion of the problems today confronting the schools of
Florida. The people have been treated to many arguments and



April 4, 1933



JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES













8 JOURNAL OF THE HOU.

have been asked to digest many statistical records. The facts
show that the state has been furnishing more and more money
each year to the public school system. Time was when the pri-
mary obligation resting upon the county was borne by the county
and the special school tax districts, but efforts have been made and
have succeeded in shifting this burden in an immensely greater de-
gree to the state. I am opposed to the assumption by the state of
any further burden. In return for the assistance which the state
gives, it must have a voice in the management of the schools. And
in addition thereto, state aid should be uniformly dependent upon
the efforts which the counties make to tax themselves for school pur-
poses. Our statistics show that in at least some counties the effort to
raise money by local taxation for school purposes has been cor-
respondingly relaxed as state appropriations have increased. This
is unfair to the school children and it is not in harmony with
the uniformity of a public school system as contemplated by the
framers of our Constitution. The people's money is being spent
and through partial state control we can immediately enforce
"throughout the state that economy in school administration which
all the other agencies of the state haveve had to adopt. No good
reason can be given for excepting the educational system. I do
not intend to expatiate on what are or are not frills and un-
necessary adjuncts of a common school system, but I do recom-
mend that along with a measure which will provide 50 percent of
the money necessary for the payment of the salaries of the
teachers by the state, that the state be placed, through its Board
of Educaon nation, in partial control of the school system. I recom-
mend that together with the passage of necessary legislation to
raise money to provide this aid, that the State Board of Educa-
tion be placed in charge of the curriculum of the public school
system and that a salary basis for teachers, 50 percent of which
it is the purpose of the state to provide, should be fixed by the
State Board of Education. That scale should be on a basis and
level which is liveable, human and American. Moreover, every
dollar contributed by the state should be spent for the sole pur-
pose of paying or endeavoring to pay 50 percent of teachers' sala-
ries upon a fixed basis, and should any school desire to pay a
greater salary scale, such school must provide the additional sums
by local taxation. The State Board of Education should be
vested with sole authority to designate the number and location of
high schools in any County.
Where is the money for the schools coming from? The neces-
sary expenditures for the school system can be placed under two
heads-debt service and maintenance. Debt service is solely a
county or school district obligation and should not be foisted upon
the state, either directly or indirectly. We are obligated only for
the revenue necessary to pay the State's part of maintenance,
which we should restrict solely to the payment of teachers' sal-
aries. Under the reduced schedule of license tag fees, which
have already been recommended, based upon present day facts,
the motor vehicle license tag tax will produce a revenue of over
$4,500,000. This tax, with the one mill constitutional school tax,
the interest on school funds, all of which is now by law diverted
to the school fund, and the money which is now received from
racing and race tracks, which I recommend and urge be diverted
to the school fund, will prove sufficient for the purpose of the
State's contribution to the common school system. We can con-
servatively estimate te thetotal amount of State aid to be approxi-
mately $5,000,000. I have already discussed the motor vehicle
license tax bill and I only refer to it now to remind you that the
school revenue bill and the motor vehicle license tax bill are
companion measures, as one provides for the revenue for state
aid to schools and the other provides for the administration and
control of school expenditures.
INDIRECT ECONOMIES ARE ALSO ESSENTIAL
Up to this point the recommendations, which I have made, have
had to do with those things which legislation will affect directly,
to-wit: economy in state government and state aid to education.
I now wish to say a word upon a subject which if properly and
fearlessly handled will be of tremendous influence and help in-
directly in effecting both economy and efficiency in the manage-
ment of the people's affairs. Our municipalities and tax districts
are burdened with tremendous debts. In many instances even
counties have not been able to meet the interest on their bonds
or provide a sinking fund for the eventual retirement of the



principal. All these debts, which were made in good faith, must
be met honorably. In many instances, in order for the munici-
pality or taxing district to fulfill its prime function as a govern-
mental agency, there must be adjustments made within the ca-
pacity and the ability of the people to pay. This is a problem
to which I invite your attention and ask for your most careful
and painstaking thought and judgment. No reasonable creditor

I shall from time to time advise with you further upon other
subjects, including the agricultural and industrial development of
Florida, with specific reference to the creation of a national mar-

mend that this honorable body place upon one of the Constitutional
boards, as at present constituted, the duties of a Debt Funding
Commission. Such law cannot and must not presume to make the
State even morally liable for any such debts. It is fundamental
that the State cannot by a legislative act be made legally liable
for such debts, or subject the State to litigation. But with these
limitations it is conceived that such a commission can be and
should be given such power and authority as will assist in solving,
working out and adjusting the present municipal and special tax
district obligations to the best interests of all parties concerned.

LOCAL AND SPECIAL LEGISLATION
Many of the present difficulties in which our people find them-
selves can be traced back directly to the improvident passage of
local or special legislation. This practice has grown to such an
extent that it is now a menace. Such legislation not only con-
sumes a great deal of the time of the Legislature, but it results
in legislation which often carries huge tax burdens to the people
of the locality it affects. I am calling this to your attention for
two reasons. I ask you to forego and forget local interest until
major projects concerning the whole state are disposed of. As
one of these major projects, which concern the people of the whole
state, I ask that you formulate an act which has for its purpose
the making uniform of all laws of the State of Florida with re-
spect to municipal corporations. Under the present law, as inter-
preted by our Supreme Court, a local law pertaining to a muni-
cipality does not even have to be advertised. Consequently, the
people of the municipality do not even have the protection which
comes from publicity. I recommend the submission of a Consti-
tutional amendment respecting the charters of all municipalities,
of course, bearing in mind that the population of the munici-
pality should to a great extent govern the powers and duties
conferred by the act. Florida is one of the few states left where
this kind of legislation has not been already enacted.
BANKING AND FINANCE
You are all advised of existing conditions respecting banking
and financial institutions, and during this session of the legisla-
ture and in keeping with the progress being made nationally and
locally, you should give consideration to such legislation as will
protect and conserve the banking and financial institutions of this
State and through them the money of the people deposited in
them.
REPEAL OF EIGHTEENTH AMENDMENT
The national Congress has passed an act submitting to the
states the question of the repeal of the Eighteenth Amendment
and has requested that the State of Florida cause the amendment
to be submitted to a convention for such action as may be had. It,
therefore, becomes your duty to pass such legislation as is neces-
sary to submit this question. The national Congress has also
legalized beer and has at the same time utilized its sale as a
source of revenue. I recommend the passage of a bill legalizing
beer, such legislation being in keeping with the State and National
Democratic platforms and our National Administration. Such
legislation must provide for strict regulation of the traffic and
the maximum revenues to be derived therefrom. Money so de-
rived could be well used in the purchase of text books in our
school system and for other necessary purposes of the public
schools or to such other useful purpose as may be deemed wise.
That you may have a legislative program treating in detail
the major points covered generally in this message, I propose
to have introduced at the very beginning of this session of the
legislature administration bills as follows:
1. Appropriations. !
2. Schools.
3. Motor Vehicle License Tags.
4. Retention of One Cent Gas Tax for General Revenue.
5. County Officers' Salary Bill.
6. Debt Funding Commission.
I do this in a spirit of cooperation with a desire to give you
whatever leadership a governor properly may give a state legis-
lature. I do this as a co-worker, not as a dictator.

















county officers in place of the present iniquitous and much abused
fee system; County Budget Commissions; the passage of addi-
tional banking laws as the national situation develops so that I
can advise you better as to what I should recommend; workmen's
compensation insurance as a means of fair play and a better un-
derstanding between employers and employees; the sentencing
and pardoning of prisoners and the utilization of convict labor
and consolidations of certain departments, as well as the abolish-
ment of others.
Do not assume from the foregoing message that I am at all
pessimistic about the future, the growth or the ultimate return of
prosperity to Florida. We have resources of climate, soil, min-
erals, vegetables and fruits that are unparalleled in the American
Union. Our natural resources are practically untouched. God
has given us many things-things which cannot be taken away
and for which we should be devoutly thankful. Talents, not to
be hidden under a bushel but which we should and will develop
because the greatest asset which Florida now has, or which any
state may ever hope to have, is a citizenship which has proven
itself marvelous in achievement and at all times true to its faith.
A citizenship which has withstood hurricanes, bank failures,
freezes, the collapse of a colossal boom and yet at all times has
been able to stand foursquare to the world-unconquered, un-
conquerable and unafraid.
In America, we have just begun to see and feel the light and
warmth of a new and better day. The proudest boast which my
life can ever have is that I am Governor of such a people and
shall have a part in helping my people to enjoy and appreciate the
comfort which I know that day holds for them. We have a great
"opportunity and a great privilege to join hands today in the
work we have to do, and in doing it help our people reap the
harvest of contentment, happiness and prosperity which they so
richly deserve.
And now, finally, my friends, let me seriously and reverentially
say: One cannot but feel, and urge those who are to work with
him to feel, that all tasks at hand must be approached with a deep
and reverent sense of obligation, not only to the people, the State,
and the country, but to Almighty God. Without His aid and
guidance we are nothing and we can do nothing. In order to
merit the assistance and the trust of Divinity, we must have and
assert courage, self-sacrifice, unselfishness, fortitude and man-
hood, remembering that only these characteristics can meet ap-
proval or deserve approval and help at the hands of the Almighty
Creator.
Respectfully submitted,
DAVID SHOLTZ, Governor.

Hon. Peter Tomasello, Jr.,
Speaker of the House of Representatives.
Sir-
I am directed by the Senate to inform the House of Rep-
resentatives that the Senate has adopted Senate Concurrent Reso-
lution No. 2, which reads as follows:
BE IT RESOLVED BY THE SENATE, THE HOUSE OF
REPRESENTATIVES CONCURRING.
That a joint committee, consisting of ten members of the Sen-
ate, to be appointed by the President of the Senate, and ten mem-
bers of the House of Representatives, to be appointed by the
Speaker. thereof, constitute a joint committee for the purpose of
considering all measures having for their purpose the abolishing,

And respectfully requests the concurrence of the House therein.
Very respectfully,
ROBT. W. DAVIS,
Secretary of the Senate.
And Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 2 contained in the above
message, was read the first time and was referred to the Com-
mittee on Judiciary "A."
The following REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON EFFI-
CIENCY was received and read:
Hon. Peter Tomasello, Jr.,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Your Committee on Efficiency respectfully reports as follows:
That the Committee has been overwhelmed with hundreds of
applications for employment, such applications coming from all
parts of the State; the distressing economic conditions prevail-
ing has caused every member of the House to be besieged with
applications for relief.
The Committee does not question the sincerity of the appli-
cations received but feel forced to recognize the fact that only
a limited number can be employed, and it is the desire of the
Committee that every member of the House of Representatives
and every County in the State be treated with fairness in the
selection of those who are to be employed; and at the same time
the Committee recognizes the fact that only those whose services
are actually needed should be employed.
For these reasons, the Committee has adopted the following
rule with reference to the employment of attaches: Each member
of the House will be given the right to recommend one and only
one applicant for employment and this applicant must then ap-
pear before the Committee for examination as to his or her
qualifications for the place to which the applicant is recom-
mended; if the applicant does not pass a satisfactory examina-
tion before the Committee, he or she will be rejected and the
member may submit another recommendation.
If the applicant satisfactorily qualifies for the place he or she
will be placed on the eligible list and employed when needed. It
is not the purpose of the Committee to employ ninety-five at-
taches at present but to employ them only when, as and if needed.
By this method the Committee, as well as each member of the
House, will be relieved of criticism as to favoritism in the se-
lection of attaches, and each section of the State will be treated
impartially. Every applicant is required to be a bona fide citizen
of the State of Florida.
In accordance with this rule, the Committee has examined and



has placed in actual service, the following:
Services to begin April 4th. Jessie Bell, Secretary to Committee
on Efficiency; Emma Rogers, Secretary to Committee on Judici-
ary "A"; Evelyn Matthews, Secretary to Committee on Appropri-

COMMITTEE REPORTS
Mr. Sapp, of Bay, Chairman of the Committee on Banks
and Loans, reported that the Committee had considered the
following bill, and recommended that it pass:
House Bill No. 206:
Providing for the appointment of a Conservator by the
Comptroller for certain banks and trust companies under cer-
tain conditions with his powers, duties and compensation, and
further providing for the reorganization of certain banks and
trust companies.
Committee vote was as follows:
Yeas-Messrs. Dugger, Kanner, Teague, Bishop, Waller,
Ives, Collier, Christie, Bass, Rogers, and Sapp.
Nays-Messrs. Baskin and Byington.
Very respectfully,
J. M. SAPP,
Chairman of Committee.
And House Bill No. 206, contained in the above report, was
placed on the Calendar of Bills on second reading.
Minority Report on House Bill No. 206:
By Messrs. Byington and Baskin, members of Committee on
Banks and Loans, by dissent from majority of report, and
recommend that said House Bill No. 206 do not pass.
1. The bill as framed vests arbitrary power in the Comp-
troller to appoint and name Conservators for banks at his
pleasure, thereby giving the Comptroller unlimited powers of
life in slow death over each State bank in Florida.
2. The bill as framed vests too much arbitrary power in
the Comptroller and gives the creditors of the bank, who
stand to lose by unwise appointments, no voice in nam-
ing the Conservator. The history of administration of defunct
banks in Florida by the Comptroller has proven costly, bur-
densome and expensive, with thousands and thousands of
dollars loss to depositors through the exercise of long-range
power by the Comptroller.



3. Your Minority Committee, voting nay on the bill, believes
that creditors of banks should suggest and elect their own



April 11, 1933



Conservator or Conservators, at a meeting called for that
purpose, at which meeting the Judge of the Circuit Court
or a Master appointed for such purposes, should preside. In
this wise the creditors would have some voice in the local
affairs of the bank affected.
4. The bill as framed does not preclude the Comptroller
from naming a Conservator to a bank which now is in the
hands of a Liquidator and thereby creates an additional drain
upon the resources already greatly depleted by liquidation, nor
does it prevent the Comptroller from naming a Conservator
and Liquidator simultaneously.
Very respectfully,
E. L. BASKIN.
JOHN S. BYINGTON,
Mr. Teague, Chairman of the Committee on Finance and
Taxation, reported that the Committee had considered the fol-
lowing bills, and recommended that it pass; with the Com-
mittee Amendments:

Mr. Speaker:
I am paired with 1Mr. Peeples of Glades County, who is ab-
sent. Were he here he would vote for the Bill and I vote nay.
J. C. BROWN.
Dade County.
EXPLANATION OF VOTE
Mr. Speaker:
At the last session of the Legislature I voted NO on this
same bill and I again vote NO for the reason that I think
that the automobile owners of this State are paying more
than their proportionment share of taxes to support the Gov-
ernment.



The automobile owners pay a license tax and a gas tax
and other taxes aggregating approximately twenty-three mil-
lion dollars ($23,000,000.00) being about seventy per cent of
taxes paid for general purposes.

REPORTS OF SPECIAL COMMITTEES
REPORT OF COMMITTEES ON EFFICIENCY AND
LEGISLATIVE EXPENSE
Hon. Peter Tomasello, Jr.,
Speaker of the House of Representatives.
Tallahassee, Florida.
Sir:
In compliance with your request, a joint meeting of the Com-
mittee on Efficiency and the Committee on Legislative Expense
was held April 10th, 1933, for the purpose of determining the
rate of pay to be allowed attaches at this Session of the Legis-
lature.
At this meeting, the members of both Committees being
present, it was definitely decided that the Efficiency Committee
would employ no more help at all at this Session of the Leg-
islature.
The matter of over-time pay for attaches was brought up
at this meeting and it was determined that the rate of pay
previously determined on by the Legislative Expense Commit-
tee should be increased in certain instances in order to obviate
the necessity of paying for over-time. Heretofore, the Legis-
lative Expense Committee has had considerable trouble in
keeping the over-time straight. During the 1931 Session of
the Legislature, the Committee was informed that over-time
cost the State of Florida approximately $11,000.00.
The question before the joint committee was whether the
House would slightly increase the scale, of wages previously
determined on or take care of this matter of extra work by
slight increase in the daily pay. The latter method was defin-
itely determined on by the joint Committee and the following
scale of wages was adopted and is herewith submitted for your
consideration:
Secretaries to Committees, specifically assigned by appoint-
ment of the Speaker, or Efficiency Committee-$6.00 per day.
Qualified stenographers, doing general stenographic work,
working under the supervision and direction of the Superin-
tendent of Stenographers-$6.00 per day.
All verifiers, typist and messengers-$5.00 per day.
The Sergeant-at-Arms and Assistant Sergeant-at-Arms-
$6.00 per day.
Doorkeepers-$3.00 per day.
Pages-$3.00 per day.
The Chief Clerk of the Journal Room-$6.00 per day.
The Assistant Journal Clerk-$4.00 per day.
The Enrolling Clerk-$6.00 per day.
The Engrossing Clerk-$6.00 per day.
The Assistant Enrolling Clerk-$5.00 per day.
The Assistant Engrossing Clerk-$5.00 per day.
Janitor-$6.00 per day.
Assistant Janitors-$5.00 per day.

Bill Clerk; Special Assistants to Chief Clerk and the Assistant

PETITIONS OR OTHER PAPERS ADDRESSED TO
THE HOUSE
State of Florida, Executive Department,
Tallahassee, April 13, 1933.
Hon Peter Tomasello, Jr.,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Capitol.
Sir:
Please allow me to direct the attention of the House of Rep-
resentatives to the importance of House Bill No. 206 and House
Bill No. 207, which are identical with Senate Bill No. 124 and
Senate Bill No. 125, respectively.
These bills are emergency measures, intended to assist in the
re-organization of a number of banks in this State and are
highly important at this particular time. It is unnecessary for
me to here call your attention to the crisis lately existing in
the bank structure of the whole country. These two bills are
in line with national legislation on the same subject and it is
well known that the best banking minds of the country con-
centrated on formulating the national legislation which has

recently been passed by Congress, upon the recommendation
of no less a personage than the Honorable Franklin D. Roose-
velt, President of the United States.
I cannot too strongly urge that you give these two measures
immediate and preferred attention.
Respectfully submitted,
DAVE SHOLTZ.
Governor.
State of Florida, Executive Department,
Tallahassee, April 11, 1933.
Gentlemen of the Legislature:
In pursuance of the requirement of Section II of Article IV
of the State Constitution, I have the honor totransmit here-
with a report covering "every case of fine or forfeiture remitted,
or reprieve, pardon or commutation granted, stating the name
of the convict, the crime for which he was convicted, the sen-
tence, its date, and the date of its remission, commutation,
pardon or reprieve" since making report to the Second Extra-
ordinary Session of the Legislature, July 15, 1931.
Respectfully,
DAVE SHOLTZ.
Governor.
Mr. Westbrook moved that, in view of the fact that the list
of pardons, reprieves and commutations, etc., had been pub-
lished in the daily Journal of the Senate, that the said list be
not printed in the House daily Journal.
Which was agreed to.
Orlando, Fla., April 12, 1933.
Hon. Peter Tomasello. Jr..
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Tallahassee, Florida.
Dear Mr. Speaker:
Enclosed herewith please find copy of two Resolutions adopt-

tention to the fact that they were unanimously adopted.
There are approximately 16,000 members of the Young Dem-
ocratic Clubs of Florida, and we feel that their sentiments are
fully expressed in these Resolutions and hope that they will
be given due consideration by our honorable Legislature.
We wish for you a harmonious and successful session and
want you to know that this organization stands ready and
willing to serve you in any way possible for the best interest
of the people of Florida.
Sincerely yours,

EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON HOUSE BILL NO. 114
The people of Florida have spoken very plainly on the ques-
tion and I feel that it only remains for us to write the man-
date of the people into law. I believe the measure will bring
some revenue into our State which will tend to aid the State
materially during this distressing time of trial and distress.
JOHN S. BYINGTON.
EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON HOUSE BILL NO. 114
In voting no I realize that conditions resulting from pro-
hibition enforcement laws are most unsatisfactory. Judg-
ing from the vote in my county in the last congressional race
I am persuaded that a majority of the people in my county
may favor a law to conform to the Volstead Act as modified
by Congress, and feel in sympathy with the Act, but our State
Constitution is substantially different from the Federal, which
makes doubtful the constitutionality thereof, however if this
Act had a referendum or reasonable restrictions prohibiting
sale of 3.2 per cent beer to minors, I would have voted other-
wise, willing to leave to the courts the question of validity,
feeling that the real cause of temperance was being promoted
thereby.
TOM B. STEWART.
EXPLANATION OF VOTE
I vote no because this bill does not carry a "referendum."

Dear Sir:
I am herewith transmitting to you my reason for not sup-
porting House Bill No. 114, commonly known as the Beer Bill,
acted upon by our body this forenoon.
First: Upon taking office as Representative I, as you know,
upon my oath, swore to support the Constitution of not only
the United States but likewise the Constitution of the State



E OF REPRESENTATIVES April 14, 1933

vinced that the measure if passed, will help to solve the present
economic conditions, I have voted yes, and in favor of the bill.
NOAH H. BUTT,
of Brevard.
EXPLANATION OF CROCKER ON HIS VOTE ON HOUSE
BILL NO. 114, ON APRIL 14TH.
I vote for the bill for the principal reason that the prohibi-
tion law has not been, and is not being enforced.
EXPLANATION OF VOTE ON HOUSE BILL NO. 114.
I supported an amendment to refer this measure to the
people of each county to vote upon before it became effective,
but that was voted down and believing that a great majority
of the people of my county approved this measure I am voting
for it, as I believe a representative should support measures
wanted by a majority of his constituents, regardless of his in-
dividual opinion.
DWIGHT L. ROGERS.
EXPLANATION OF VOTE
Hon. Frank Webb,
Chief Clerk,
House of Representatives.
Sir:
Please have the Journal of the House of Representatives
show the following explanation of my vote on House Bill No.
114, to-wit:
I am personally opposed to the bill, but I represent a county,
the voters of which, in my opinion, favor the passage of the
bill by a large majority.
2nd. I believe that the proof of the pudding is in the
eating, and that the present hysteria for beer'should not be
ignored.
3rd. The people of this State will sooner or later see their
error, and we will return to a prohibition law that will be
backed by all the people.
Respectfully,
JOHN L. EARLY,
Representative Sarasota County.
EXPLANATION OF VOTE BY R. C. MIDDLETON
I voted aye on House Bill No. 114, generally known as the
Beer Bill.
I have always been a dry politically and dry in habit; how-
ever, I fully realize that a majority of the people of my county
and this State have expressed themselves as being desirous
with the national attitude with reference to beer. Congress
has passed over the 18th Amendment legalizing 3.2 beer. I
know that under the circumstances that if we did not keep
step with the interpretation fixed by Congress that the people
of Florida would procure beer and the traffic would be un-
controlled and necessary revenue lost.
I believe it is worth while after these many years of ex-
perience under bone-dry Legislation which cannot be en-
forced, that possibly the permission of 3.2 beer may bring
about some actual advances toward effective temperance.
I also think that the wets ought to be given a chance to see
whether they have learned anything during the last fourteen
years and fail to show proper self-control under 3.2 beer, then
I believe bone-dry prohibition will be enforcible.
This does not change my personal habits nor my opinions
with reference to liquors that are actually intoxicating.
EXPLANATION OF VOTE
I will vote for the Beer Bill when it comes up for passage.
I came here with that intention. I voted for the referendum
amendments because I believe that it is proper for this
House to refer matters of this importance to the people. Also
such a referendum would settle the matter more definitely and
it would not be an issue in the next election.

JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE



of Florida. My interpretation of the Florida Constitution at
this time is that the 19th amendment prohibits the sale of
alcoholic beverages containing more than one-half of one per
cent alcohol, and until this amendment of our Constitution
has been taken care of I could not conscientiously support
the Beer Bill, but had this amendment of our State Constitu-
tion not been staring me in the face I would have gladly sup-
ported the bill.
Of course, we have heard various interpretations regarding
this amendment of our Constitution and legalizing of beer,
prior to our action upon same this morning, but the above
is mine.
Trusting that the above will enlighten you and others as
to my feeling along this line, I am,
Respectfully yours;
R. R. STRICKLAND,
Representative of Sumter County.
