GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE
GENTLEMEN OF THE SENATE AND HOUSE OF REPRE-
SENTATIVES OF THE LEGISLATURE-MY FELLOW
WORKERS FOR FLORIDA:
The Constitution of the State of Florida provides that the
Governor shall by message communicate to the Legislature at
each regular session information concerning the condition of
the State, and recommend such measures as he may deem ex-
pedient. It is my honor and privilege to submit to you this
message in accordance with this provision of the Constitution.
Copies of the Budget Commission's report, which were mailed
to you several weeks ago, another copy of which was placed
on your desk this morning for your convenience, give a full
and complete picture on the financial condition of the State
and the estimated requirements for the next biennium.
Therefore, to avoid repetition you are asked to consider the
budget as a portion of my report of the financial condition of
the State and the estimated requirements for the next two
years as my recommendation to the Legislature.
This Budget is the result of careful and thoughtful consid-
eration on the part of the Budget Commission which, as you
know, is composed of the Governor and the entire Cabinet.
Every department of the State Government has been carefully
gone into. The Budget is based on the use of good common
sense judgment and the necessity for economical government.
It sets forth in the opinion of the Budget Commission what
should be adequate for the needs of the State for the next two
years. It must be realized that there has been a general ad-
vance in the cost of food stuffs, supplies, materials and labor
to the average extent of approximately thirty per cent, with
further advances to be expected.
Your special attention is called to the comments by the
Budget Commission which are printed in the report and your
full thought is directed to the chart showing where the state
dollar comes from and where it goes. Further attention is
specifically directed to the necessity for adequate provision for
the State Institutions on a long time, carefully planned pro-
gram to provide for essential requirements. Adequate main-
tenance and upkeep of state property should not further be
postponed. We have been putting off from session to session
adequate provision for maintenance, and although much has
been done, as for example, at the State Hospital for the In-
sane, yet that Institution is over-crowded and as has been so
often said by your Governor and the various members of the
Cabinet, the whole Institution shows a crying lack of facili-
ties for decent, humane care of the wards that we have there.
Therefore, it is the hope of your Budget Commission which
has devoted many actual months of thought and considera-
tion to its preparation with the benefit of actual daily gov-
ernmental supervision, that you will see fit to adopt the Budget
substantially as presented.
Your attention is called to the fact that at the beginning
of the first full fiscal year of this administration, July 1st,



1933, there was a deficit of approximately $2,000,000 in state
revenues. At the end of that fiscal year, June 30th, 1934, the
State Budget had been balanced for the first time in years
and the deficit had been changed into a surplus of approxi-
mately $600,000, a net gain in the financial position of the
State of approximately $2,600,000.















As the result of reforms put into effect there was repaid
every dollar which had been borrowed from the State School
Fund by previous administrations to the amount of $100,000.
In addition to that, in the first fiscal year of this administra-
tion $87,646.41 was paid on account of outstanding bank in-
debtedness of $375,000, which indebtedness had been due for
a period of approximately eight years. Every current bill cre-
ated during that fiscal year was paid.
Since the beginning of the current fiscal year, July 1st,
1934, the balance of the State's bank indebtedness inherited
by this administration amounting to $287,362.66 has been
paid.
Since the beginning of this administration, for the first
time in years, all premiums due the State Fire Insurance
Fund have been paid and this Fund is thereby being put on
a sound basis. In addition to this, the Internal Improvement
Board has retired approximately $200,000 of delinquent taxes.
All current bills are paid promptly. No obligations are created
unless the money is on hand with which to pay them.
In my Inaugural Address I suggested a basis of operation
which in my opinion should remain in full force and effect.
1. Can the State afford it?
2. Does the State have the money to pay for it?
3. Can the State get along without it?
How well this has proven itself is indicated by what has
been accomplished up to the present time.
It is indeed gratifying that with a balanced budget the
State of Florida is now on a "pay-as-you-go" basis and all
of this has been done without any new sources of revenue,
except the beer and wine revenue which went directly to the
schools. Today in Florida in the operation of your State Gov-
ernment we contract no bills that we cannot promptly pay
and I know that you cannot help but feel better with such a
condition. You have had to live within your income and as
I have so often said there is no reason why a government
cannot live within its income. We certainly are doing that
today in Florida. This has been accomplished by rigid economy
in all departments of government, and by enforcement of
collections due the State in which I have had the hearty co-
operation of your comptroller. Without the co-operation of the
Legislature as well as the members of the Cabinet this achieve-
ment would have been impossible. The balancing of the bud-
get was accomplished only as the result of the strict budgeting
of governmental expenditures resulting in appropriations at
the last session of the Legislature that saved approximately
one and a half million dollars per annum.
Great economies have resulted not only in the State but
in the counties from the system of records and accounting
installed by the State Auditing Department. This has done
much to assist in the maintenance of adequate economy and
in the years to come will save untold millions to the taxpayers
of our State.
Florida as a State is in a class by itself. Because of its con-
servative legislation it has attracted many people to make
this State their residence and her people last year paid more
in Federal Inheritance Tax than 38 other states, thereby
ranking tenth in the payment of Inheritance Taxes, whereas
she ranks thirty-first in point of population.
While it may have been physically possible to get along with
fewer employees in the various departments of State Govern-
ment it has not in my opinion been humanely possible to do
so. I do not believe the people of this State wish to disregard
entirely the human equation.
Up until February 28th of this year Florida received from
the Uniited States Government during this administration
$16,160,000 from the Civil Works Administration and $34,146,-
535 from Federal Emergency Relief, education, transients and
special programs. In addition to this up until March 1st, 1935,
we have received commodities to the value of $3,823,884, mak-
ing a total of $54,130,419 without matching a dollar of these
federal funds. At the same time it has been incumbent upon
this State to take care of its own as far as possible. In line
with this responsibility the State has employed more help in
its several departments than might have been employed under
normal conditions. However, the discharge of state employees
Who would immediately become a charge on the Federal Gov-
ernment would have mitigated sorely against the State and



would have indicated bad faith on our part in cooperation
with the Federal Government. For these reasons and inasmuch
as we have been keeping within the budget the number of



5



state employees, all of whom are performing efficient and
worth while service to the State, is perhaps greater than it
might have been otherwise. I am bluntly frank in this declar-
ation. The State of Florida has at least attempted to do its
part in cooperation with our great and humane President.
I believe that the best governed people are those who are
the least governed; that there are already too many laws in
our State; that what we need here in Florida is more law
enforcement and less law enactment.
If all property had been equitably assessed, if taxes had been
paid by all alike, real estate, intangible, occupational license,
documentary stamp, poll tax, etc., at all times there would
have been sufficient money to operate our State and County
Governments and our schools.
The first essential of government is the finances with which
to operate because without revenue there could be no govern-
ment. Therefore, I am now requesting the Legislature to cen-
ter its efforts from the very beginning of this session upon
those measures which have to do with finances or in which
finances are involved. With that idea in mind, this, my first
Message to this Legislature, will be confined to the recom-
mendation of legislation in which finances are involved.
In a general way this will include:
1. Appropriations.
2. Schools and Free Textbooks.
3. Reduced License Tags.
4. Liquor.
5. Construction Appropriations for Chattahoochee and
Raiford and other institutions as the State's contribu-
tion to emergency relief.
6. Reenactment of 1 cent Gas Tax for General Revenue.
7. Relief of real estate from all State Ad valorem except
the one mill constitutional levy for schools.
All of these items are either revenue producing or require
revenue and some of them are more or less related to each
other.
With these measures disposed of we will be assured of a
balanced budget for the next biennium. We will know just
where the money is coming from to take care of these ap-
propriations and we will be secure in the knowledge that the
State will be able to continue for the next two years on a
sound financial basis.
I said two years ago that the State of Florida did not need
any new or additional sources of revenue. Notwithstanding
the loss of revenue that will inevitably follow the adoption of
the Homestead Exemption Amendment that statement still
holds good. The State can get along fine, take care of all of
its obligations, including schools and relief and at the same
time reduce the cost of the auto tag to $5 and $10, provide
free textbooks in all grades and eliminate the State Ad valorem
Tax on real estate without any new revenue except that which
naturally follows licensing of the sale of liquor. It is purely
a matter of collection and allocation.
APPROPRIATIONS
It is my recommendation that the Appropriation Bill be
formulated and introduced during the first days of your ses-
sion to the end that it may have proper and sufficient con-
sideration. With the Budget in your hands so far in advance
of the session, there is no need for delay in passing the Ap-
propriation Bill until late in the session. Its early passage
will remove doubt and uncertainties.
SCHOOLS AND FREE TEXT BOOKS
The School system of Florida should be adequately financed
for actual requirements essential for sound operation so that,
the children may get a fundamental American education and
the teachers who give of their energy and time may receive
decent, livable compensation. Substantial progress was made
at the last session of the Legislature when legislation was
passed which directed that the moneys received by the State
for the benefit of the schools should be segregated for the
primary purpose of seeing that the teachers were paid prompt-
ly, as well as the bus drivers.
The adoption of the Homestead Exemption Amendment will
result in a substantial decrease in school revenues which can-



not well be made up by counties which will experience the
same financial difficulties. Accordingly, I am willing that the

State contribute to the schools in this emergency to the limit
of its ability.
Approximately Ten and One-half Million Dollars may be
provided annually for the schools from the following sources
without tapping any new sources of revenue:
Reallocation of the present 3c Gas Tax from bonds to schools
as an emergency measure for two years would produce in
my opinion $7,000,000 per annum.
With a reduction of license tags for automobiles to five and
ten dollars the Motor Vehicle Fund would yield approximately
three and one-half million dollars per annum.
The one mill constitutional levy and the interest on the
School Fund would yield another half million dollars, making
a total of approximately $11,000,000.
There is now a balance of $298,000 in the Free School Text
Book Fund.
Not more than five hundred thousands dollars in addition
to present revenue for free text books in certain grades will
be required to provide free school books for every child through
high school, thus leaving approximately $10,500,000 for teach-
ers and bus drivers.
It is not my intention to make the temporary reallocation
of the 3c Gas Tax from bonds to schools an issue with the
Legislature but this is one of the things I had in mind when
I referred to our financial problem as being purely a matter
of collection and allocation. As an alternative there might be
levied a general commodity emergency tax of 3% for the
benefit of school operations which would yield approximately
the same amount as the 3c Gas Tax. It is up to the Legislature
in its wisdom to choose between these two options or suggest
a better way to provide the funds required. In passing, I might
suggest that if the 3c Gas Tax now allocated to counties for
debt service should be transferred to the schools it might be
done under an existing emergency for a period of two years
without repealing the present law which would remain in full
force and effect after the two year period.
FOR THE SCHOOLS-(Recapitulation)
3c Gas or 3% Commodity Tax (est.) .......................$ 7,000,000
License Tags-$5 and $10 on Autos (est.) .................. 3,500,000
1 Mill Constitutional Levy and Interest on School
Fund (est.) ................. ............. ................. 500,000

$11,000,000
Estimated increased cost free textbooks, all grades 500,000

Leaving for schools in addition to free textbooks......$10,500,000
In this manner the schools would be relieved of the emerg-
ency arising from the passage of the Homestead Exemption
Amendment. It is time to place the schools once and for all
on a sound financial basis.
REDUCED LICENSE TAGS
In my Message to the 1933 session of the Legislature, I
recommended that a reasonable tax such as a $5.00 and $10.00
tag for automobiles based upon some stated weight of the
car be enacted by the Legislature. With the program that is
suggested for your consideration, with the adequate financing
of the schools as heretofore suggested, it is my opinion that a
$5.00 and $10.00 license tag can now be given to the owners
of passenger automobiles in our State. I am convinced that
many thousands more of motor vehicles would be in use, giving
an increase to the volume of gasoline used and consequent
increase in the Gasoline Tax collected.
LIQUOR
There are three essential fundamentals that must be con-
sidered in the enactment of liquor legislation.
1. Temperance.
2. Elimination of illicit traffic in liquor.
3. Revenue.
There are two main avenues open to the Legislature in the
enactment of liquor laws, namely, the license system and the
state control system, commonly known as the Dispensary
System.



I would point out to you: first, that the State is in no finan-
cial condition to embark in such a treacherous and hazardous



April 2, 1935



business as the liquor business, and second, that my investiga-
tion of other states which have gone into the business dis-
closed that in many instances it had created new fields for
graft and corruption.
Certainly it appears that the profits are not in line with
the revenue derived by states that levied a gallonage tax and
controlled the industry through licensed vendors.
Let us eliminate as far as possible once and for all the il-
legal operator commonly known as the bootlegger.
It is my opinion that by an adequate control bill, with state
license fees and a gallonage tax on all spirits, Florida will
collect a larger profit from the industry and traffic at prac-
tically slight cost to the State. If the State endeavored to go
into the business, it would then be necessary to lease, equip
and man hundreds of stores, and such an undertaking would
require an investment which the State cannot finance, and
would open up avenues for losses and leaks which the State
could not control.
Fundamentally I do not believe and have never felt that the
State Government has any business engaging in private busi-
ness. I am utterly opposed to the return of the saloon.
APPROPRIATIONS FOR CHATTAHOOCHEE AND RAIFORD
AND OTHER STATE INSTITUTIONS AS THE STATE'S
CONTRIBUTION TO EMERGENCY RELIEF
We are prohibited under our Constitution from making
direct appropriations for welfare or relief. According to the
Constitution of the State of Florida that is a responsibility
of the respective counties. However, with depleted funds re-
sulting from the adoption of the Homestead Exemption
Amendment that is a burden that the counties cannot be
expected to assume at this time. Accordingly, I am recom-
mending an appropriation of One Million Dollars for super-
vision and the materials to be used in the construction of
much needed extensions to the State Hospital at Chatta-
hoochee, the Prison Farm at Raiford and other state-main-
tained and operated institutions. I feel sure that the labor
for this work will be furnished from relief rolls to an extent
far greater than the appropriation recommended and I believe
that our appropriation will be considered by the Federal Gov-
ernment as a matching of funds. In my opinion it will be
possible to make such an appropriation from increased rev-
enues in the General Revenue Fund.

REENACTMENT OF ONE CENT GAS TAX FOR
GENERAL REVENUE
With the State's additional contribution to the schools and
with the elimination of the state ad valorem tax on real estate,
which I am recommending, it will be necessary to re-enact for
another two years the present emergency legislation allocating
the Ic Gasoline Tax to the General Fund.

RELIEF OF REAL ESTATE FROM ALL STATE AD VALOREM
EXCEPT THE ONE MILL CONSTITUTIONAL
LEVY FOR SCHOOLS
Certainly the taxpayers are entitled to every right to have
their taxes reduced in every possible manner. It is my recom-
mendation that the State Ad valorem, with the exception of
the one mill constitutional levy for schools, can well be given
up, providing the revenue from the liquor legislation is al-
lotted to General Revenue in its place and stead and the
emergency one cent gasoline revenue now going to the General
Revenue is retained for another two year period.
With the reenactment of the present law allocating the
7th cent of Gasoline Tax to the General Revenue Fund and
the revenue from beer and liquor allocated to that fund we
can continue to take care of Confederate Veterans Pensions,
Tick Eradication and Live Stock Sanitary Board, Board of
Health, State Prison, the present free school book requirements
and state operating expenses that are now provided for by
state millage of 6 1-8 mills, thereby entirely eliminating all
state ad valorem tax on real estate except the one mill levy
for schools required by the Constitution. In addition to that
we can appropriate One Million Dollars for Chattahoochee,
Raiford and our other institutions as heretofore suggested and
thus solve our relief problem in a way which I am confident
will meet constitutional requirements.



The 6 1-8 mills ad valorem, according to our present budget,
is estimated to yield during the next biennium $1,528,432 per

HIGHWAYS
The Congress of the United States in an Act approved June
18, 1924, provided that any State which is diverting highway
tax to use other than construction and maintenance of high-
ways shall be deprived of not less than one-third of its just
apportionment of road funds. On that account alone it is
inconceivable that we should divert any portion of the 3c
Gas Tax now allocated to roads. Aside from that fact, how-
ever, the amount yielded by the present 3c Gas Tax is far
from sufficient for the proper maintenance and betterment
of our State Highways which now represent an investment
of more than $200,000,000. After careful thought and study
I have reached the firm conclusion that the convicts should
be put on maintenance work in Florida and on any new
construction made possible by federal aid free labor only
should be used.

CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS
It is my duty at this time to call to your attention the fact
that a number of constitutional amendments were adopted by
a majority vote of the citizens of this State at the last No-
vember election and that these amendments require action on
the part of this Legislature in accordance with the mandate of
the people. These amendments have to do with a number of
very important matters affecting the general welfare of our
people, such as the reduction of judicial circuits and the
uniform legislation for cities and towns which will enable
the abolition of small and unnecessary municipalities. The
Homestead Amendment has left a necessity for clarification.
The National Administration has been kind to Florida and
certainly has helped Florida get off to a good start. We should
never be unmindful of that spirit of cooperation so clearly
demonstrated by the Federal Government, but at the same
time we should put our own house in order. It is time to quit
the constant raiding on the State and Federal Treasuries and
Florida certainly can help set the pace for the rest of the
country in cooperating with our great President in stabilizing
conditions for our people. There is no reason with careful
planning why Florida cannot learn to stand on its own feet.
The back of the depression has undoubtedly been broken. We
do not need any permanent dole nor is there any need for
the next administration to go through what this Governor,
his cabinet and other State Officials have had to go through
with in endeavoring to set our own house in order. It is time
to do something for ourselves.
The new conditions that are beginning to prevail in Florida
necessitate the use of good old-fashioned common sense and
extreme caution, as well as even a greater exercise of prudence
and good judgment. Let us guard against any increase in the
burdens of taxation, for the people of Florida desire an effi-
cient and economical government.
Florida is making a real comeback. Additional hotels, homes
and apartments are not only planned but under construction.
Let us continue our attractions to visitors and new settlers.
Florida should be the Riviera of the New World. We should
not enact laws that would turn visitors and new settlers from
the North, East, West and South to other directions. We should
at this session renew our invitation to all to come to Florida.
With our glorious climate, and within one night's ride of sev-
enty-five million people, we enjoy advantages that cannot be
matched or duplicated in the whole world.
In subsequent messages I will treat with such matters as



Security and Social Welfare Legislation, Syndicalism and
Communism, Local Governmental Units and County Consoli-
dations, Citrus, Highways, State Highway Patrol, Workmen's

of our government striving to render the greatest possible
service to our State let us work together for the welfare and
well-being of our people, subordinating individuality and per-
sonality to the end that this session of the Legislature may be
written into the history of this State as outstanding in its
achievements.
I offer you my whole-hearted cooperation. You are respect-
fully invited to feel free at all times to consult with me to the
end that by working together we may fully discharge our



E OF REPRESENTATIVES 7

Compensation, State Planning Board, Unemployment Insur-
ance, Old Age Pensions, highway truck regulations, reforesta-
tion and other subjects.
Many of these matters are of major importance to the State
but as I have said before the first essential of government is
the finances with which to operate and I am urging you to
give your first consideration to these essentials.
If the growth of the State and increase in volume of busi-
ness requires a longer session than sixty days, let's amend the
Constitution, but in the absence of such an amendment let
the Legislature and the Chief Executive of the people set a
good example by living up to the letter and the spirit of the
Constitution, which we are sworn to uphold. Any special ses-
sion following a regular session would be an evasion of the
spirit of the Constitution.
Forewarned is forearmed and with the knowledge before-
hand that we have but sixty days to do the job we can cut
our garment according to the cloth and if we cannot do all
that we might like to do in the Constitutional sixty days, let
us do all that it is possible to do within that time, taking up
and disposing of our problems in the order of their importance.
Never before has the Legislature been provided with so much
information and statistical data to guide and assist in its
deliberations and conclusions. This will be a great time saving
factor.
The people of the State are in no mood to countenance with
complacency the expenditure of approximately four thousand
dollars per day for an extra session. Neither is it fair to you
men of the Legislature to be called upon to serve beyond the
allotted time at a compensation not commensurate with your
worth and earning capacity in your various professions and
business activities. In view of all this I can see no possible
justification for a special session to follow the regular session
now assembled.
I am confident the members of the Legislature will conduct
its session in a business-like manner and with promptness
and dispatch. Gathered as you are here from the sixty-seven
counties of Florida, naturally you are well informed of the
needs of your respective communities and of the counties
which elected you. The Legislature, however, sits for the ben-
efit of the entire State and I would respectfully urge you in
the consideration of the measures before you to consider
whether or not such measures are for the benefit of the entire
State or whether of a selfish or purely local nature. As the
chosen representatives of the people what you do here is of
utmost importance to them. Florida today stands at the
threshold of its greatest period of progress and the soundness
and saneness of your deliberations may well direct the pros-
perity and future of Florida so that the greatest good may
be secured for the greatest number.
I have no personal or political axe to grind and no legisla-
tive hobbies or ambition to be served. It is not my intention
or desire to enforce my individual views or opinions upon the
Legislature but at the same time I shall not avoid the re-
sponsibility of leadership. Such suggestions and recommenda-
tions as I may make from time to time for your consideration
will be prompted solely by what I consider to be in the best
interests of our people whom we jointly represent.
I am only one human being not endowed with any qualities
that are not inherent in the majority of you and I am by no
means infallible. We are all working in a common cause to
the same end. In accordance with our individual judgments
we may approach this common end from different angles, all
with equal sincerity of purpose. My suggestions are not to be
considered as the last word nor shall I contend for their literal
adoption. If better ways and means for accomplishing the
desired end are suggested or brought to light in the course
of your deliberations they will receive my hearty endorsement
and approval. After all, the enactment of legislation is your
responsibility.
As individuals we count for nothing. As cohesive branches

his wisdom has been most kind to the people of Florida and
with His help Florida should be in the forefront of all that
is constructive, worthwhile and fruitful for our people.
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

manhood, remembering that only these characteristics can
meet approval or deserve approval.and help at the hands of
the Almighty Creator.

Bushnell, Florida, April 5, 1935.
Hon. W. B. Bishop,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Tallahassee, Florida.
Sir:
Constituting the Dade Memorial Commission charged with
the duties of looking after the improvement and preservation
of the Dade Memorial Park, at Bushnell, in Sumter County,
we have the honor of submitting the following report of our
activities:
The Dade Memorial Park was created and established by
Act of the Legislature, Session of 1921, Chapter 8503,4 The
Act provided for the purchase of eighty acres of land embrac-
ing the battlefield where, on December 28, 1835, a band of
Seminole Indians ambushed and totally destroyed a Company
of one hundred and eight soldiers and officers under command
of Major Francis L. Dade. The event is called in history, "The
Dade Massacre". It is remarkable as being the only event
of the kind ever occurring East of the Mississippi River, and
the first of only three such events-(where an entire Ameri-
can Force was destroyed by the enemy)-in the history of the



United States; the next being the tragedy of the Alamo, San
Antonio, Texas, in 1836, and the last being the Custer Mass-
acre in the Big Horn Mountains, of Wyoming, in 1876.
Although the first to occur, the Dade Massacre was the last

to receive any governmental recognition. The Alamo has long
been preserved as a historic shrine and the State of Texas has
expended thousands of dollars for this purpose; and will, as
we are informed, next year put over an enormous centennial
ceremony at an expense of something like a Hundred Thousand
Dollars. The scene of the Custer Massacre has been preserved
by the United States Government at a cost of several hundred
thousand dollars. Yet the heroic sacrifice of Dade and his
men went unnoticed until the Florida Legislature in 1921 pro-
vided for the Dade Memorial Park.
While the State and National Government took no steps
to preserve the battlefield, Nature did its part in providing, as
God's own monuments to the memory of those brave Ameri-
can soldiers, many beautiful and stately trees, making a nat-
ural park of exceptional beauty. But the Legislature was just
in time (in 1921) to save these monuments from destruction
and prevent this historic spot from becoming a vegetable farm
or corn field.
Under the provisions of the 1921 Act, Governor Hardee ap-
pointed Hon. Fred C. Cubberly, of Gainesville (now deceased),
and the undersigned as Commissioners to purchase the lands,
fence the entire eighty acres, and convert it into a State Park.
We have not been able with the amount available to nearly
accomplish our ambitions, but we honestly believe we have
built a Park which is a credit to the State, and which is at-
tracting visitors from all sections of the United States-from
Washington State in the far West, Maine in the East, and
every section. As a financial proposition in advertisement of
the State we believe it has been a profitable investment, to
say nothing of the sacred duty we owe those men who gave
their lives that civilization and progress might follow. We
would appreciate very much if this Legislature would send a
Committee to inspect the Park and report the same.
We have expended the money allotted to us as carefully as
we could, keeping strict account of every dollar, and we believe
that we can say with pardonable pride that we hav e madeeach
dollar spent give the utmost result. Our time and service has
been given without remuneration other than the pleasure of
perpetuating this historic spot and event. With the improve-
ments placed in the Park it has been necessary to employ a
caretaker to live in the cottage, built for such purpose, and
to watch over and protect the Park and its many attractions.
Sumter County, although a small County of limited means,
has contributed to the project by building a macadam road
to the Park from Bushnell; the City of Bushnell provides
water and lights; so it is plain the local authorities have done
the best they can.
JUnder the supervision of the FERA a project of a little less
than Nine Thousand Dollars has been approved, and partly
carried out, and we have been assured of much greater im-
provement by the National Government making the Park one
of the most attractive spots in the State. But the work of
National relief is confined to labor and can make no provision
for protection or for the cost of necessary materials. The in-
vestment of the State in the Park has now become too great
to abandon and leave to vandalsands destroyers. All the work
and improvements of fourteen years will be lost unless further
provision is made for its care. We have been advised that in
response to a survey, made in the State by an Army Colonel
sent from Washington, this Park has been designated as the
major proposition for National monuments and markers in
Florida, and that Five Thousand Dollars has been allowed for
a "National Monument" there. Just when it will be placed we
are not advised.

have been decided. Upon the taking of any appeal, the

ministration Act except as to Lee County.

vertised, hence does not comply with Constitutional pro-
visions for passage of local bills.

the provisions of Section 28 of Article III of the Constitution
of Florida, I transmit to you with my objections thereto House
Bill No. 1617, the same having originated in the House of Rep-
resentatives, Regular Session, A. D. 1933, and being entitled
as follows:
"An Act relating to the securities required to be deposited
by Banks as a condition precedent to such Banks becoming a
depository for funds under the control of the County Board
of Public Instruction of Counties having a population of not
less than 6280 and not more than 6,300, according to the last
preceding State or Federal Census."
I am withholding my approval of the bill for the following
reasons:
This Bill would have a tendency to jeopardize the security
for moneys of one School District against another, in that it
authorizes general school deposits to be secured by bonds of
Special Tax School Districts or by any warrants or other direct
obligations of the County Board of Public Instruction.
Very respectfully,
DAVE SHOLTZ,
Governor.
The question recurred on the passage of House Bill No. 1617
of the Regular Session of 1933, the Governor's veto to the con-
trary notwithstanding.
Upon call of the roll on the passage of House Bill No. 1617
of the Regular Session of 1933 which was vetoed by the Gov-
ernor, the vote was:
Yeas-Messrs. Baker, Buchholz-2.

Tallahassee
June 7, 1933.
Honorable R. A. Gray,
Secretary of State,
Tallahassee, Florida.
Dear Sir:
On the 2nd day of June, 1933, there was filed in my office,
as provided by law, for my approval or disapproval, House
Bill No. 1196, entitled as follows:
"An Act to declare, designate and establish a certain State
road in Calhoun County, Florida; to prescribe the location
of such road; to prescribe the width of right of way of such
road; to provide that State Road number eighty-four shall
connect with the road herein designated and shall not extend
any further south than such connection, and other matters
pertaining to such newly designated road,"
which was passed in the House of Representatives on the
29th day of May, 1933, and in the Senate on the 1st day of
June, 1933.
I am withholding my approval of this Bill for the reason
that, pursuant to its terms, the Legislature has designated
and established a certain State road in Calhoun County, and
in doing so has thrown so many restrictions about its location
that the State Road Department is deprived of any discretion
whatsoever with reference thereto.
The Legislature now having finally adjourned, I am, within
ten days thereafter, herewith filing the above named Bill
with my objection thereto in your office, as required by law.
Very truly yours,
DAVE SHOLTZ,
Governor.
