r ;7 We, the county officers of 1937, realize what a debt we owe to our distinguished pre-
decessors of fifty years ago. Theirs was the task of steering the ship of state safely throughthe
stormy pioneer days of Bradford County. We today have benefited by the firm foundation -
t I S SlillIpi: i they laid down for the future of our county, and although our offices still carry many
; a i; weighty problems,there is no doubt that our duties have been made more pleasant because
1;t of the strong hands that guided the destiny of our county in its early days. In the spirit of 1'w: ""
1, 4 i gratefulness, we take this opportunity of paying homage and respect to the county officers
k'' 'j of 1887. May we leave as fine a tradition of public service behind us, is our ardent wish.

Fifty years is a long time. Many things can and do happen in the span of fifty

years. Starke, for instance, has grown from a little town with poorly lighted dirt streets to a ,

modern little city with fine streets and one of the best-lighted business and residential sections ' o/' t

in the state. It has not been an easy job to bring this great change about. Without the 4 '

'wonderful groundwork begun by the men whom we are honoring on this page today, such t l+ 1\

progress would not have been possible. But what they started in such a fine way, succeed- '

ing generations have carried on to the ultimate goal-a city delightful to live in, suitable to

rear children in, and profitable to conduct business in. What more could be asked of any ;:'

municipality? I,).
