Registration In

County Goes Up

Almost Double That of Previous
Years, According to Figures
Of Supervisor Rish

Cf G. Rish, supervisor of regis-
tration for Gulf county, announces
that approximately 2500 voters are
registered in the county this year
as compared with about 1300 in
previous election years.
The hike in figures is due to the
increase in population in the city
of Port St. Joe during the past'
two years.
State registration figures, it is
anticipated, for the Democratic
primary will reach a total of 700,-
000, as compared to 593,048 during
1938.

WHY WE ARE FOR FRED P. CONE
People are asking why The Star is.coming
out in strong support of Fred P. Cone for
United States senator. There are so many
reasons for our support that we could devote
this entire page to them and still not give
all of them. Here are a few of the reasons.
Uncle Fred won't promise just anything to
get votes. He's not that kind of a critter.
He's got to believe it's right before he acts;
and when he makes up his mind to do some-
thfing he thinks is, right, he'll put on his fight-
ing britches and wade in-and he don't give
a whoop how many are on the other side.
-Ie has a habit of speaking right out in
meeting and saying what he thinks of any
proposition, and there's never any need for
anyone being in doubt as to where he stands
on any issue. All you've got to do is to ask
h'im -and he'll tell you-and he'll do it in words
of ene syllable so you can't misunderstand
liim. He just don't know how to "pussyfoot."
THe is real and genuine, as we learned when
-we had dinner with him a couple of weeks
ago at the Port Inn. There's no "holier-than-
thou", tint to his character. He is your kind,
of man-and our kind-with his big feet (and
'we mean big) planted firmly on the ground.
He really LOVES Florida. We don't know
,of a man who has the heartfelt devotion for
his native state that Cone has for the "Land
,of the Suwannee River." And when he talks
about it, you know that he really means what
he says about putting on, his "fighting
britches" for Florida, and that he is not just
talking to get votes.
We could go on and on, but there is just
one more thing we have to say: Our state
was in one heck of a mess when the legisla-
ture adjourned and left a stack of appropria-
tion bills and nothing with which to pay them.
The governor stated at that time that he
would fix everything up by "just not spend-
ing what we haven't got," andby golly, that's
just what he has done!
Those are a few of the reasons why we
are supporting Governor Cone, and you can
let your bottom dollar right now that Uncle
Fred is headed straight for the U. S. senate.

as to which side will win the war in Europe.
It is recalled that they were also positive they
could whip China in less than three months.

HOLLAND PICKING UP
Sentiment in Gulf county for Spessard Hol-
land, candidate for governor, is on the up-
swing aiil many aggressive and enthusiastic
supporters are flocking to his standard, and
from the looks' of things he will be one of
the two high men in the county when the
votes are counted.
Holland has no political machine, no army
of hired workers, no huge advertising fund
and no slush fund. He is being supported by
people in all walks of life who want to -see a
decent, honest man in the governor's chair.
Spessard is making his race on his eight
years' record in the Florida senate where he
sponsored, supported and voted for such
measures as the workmen's compensation act,
the unemployment insurance act, free school
books, teachers' retirement,- conservation
measures, repeal of the gross receipts tax,
legislation to improve farming and marketing
methods, school improvement legislation,
abolishment of poll taxes as a requirement for
voting, and other measures for the benefit
of all peoples and all sections of the state.
We urge the voters to study carefully the
record of Spessard L. Holland and we feel
sure that after doing so they will not con-
;ider casting their vote for any other can-
didate in the gubernatorial race.

CHOOSE DECENT MEN
Voters of Gulf county do not seem to be
taking a great deal of interest in the race for
state legislators from what we gather, yet
these offices, in our opinion, are among the
most important political situations.
People should realize that the laws which
they will have to live under will be made at
Tallahassee by some of the candidates now in
the field. We hear otherwise intelligent peo-
ple saying they are going to vote for this or
that candidate for reasons which have noth-
ing to do with his fitness as a representative
in the state' legislature.
Whether there be, any immediate vital is-
sue to discuss or not, intelligent people ought
to know the character of the men they are
to send to Tallahassee. One cannot anticipate
what kind of question will come before the
next legislature, so the best course is to elect
nen who are capable of seeing into and
iiandling properly any issue which might
arise.
Representation in the state legislature is
probably more important than in the national
congress, when you get right down to cases.
The average individual is affected much more
directly by state laws than by federal laws.
The taxes paid to the federal government are
not a circumstance to those paid to the vari-
ous political subdivisions of the state. And
these taxes are created and made possible by
the men each county elects to the state legis-
lature.
Each person who thinks enough of the vot-
ing privilege to register, ought to look into
the records and reputations of the candidates
now offering for election to the legislature
sufficiently to be sure of not electing for law-
makers men who do not themselves have re-
spect for law or decency.
We are not advocating the candidacy ol
any individual for legislative office. All we
are asking is that the voters take a greater
interest in selection of their lawmakers who
are to be given the important task of making
the laws under which we all must live.

CRACKING THE WHIP


Editor The Star:
I notice that you left out my let-
ter last week, and' after thinking'
the matter over, I can't blame you,
as I was pretty hot about a cer-
tain hombre running' for governor.
So this week I'll lay often politics
and talk about our young people,
which is a sore spot with me.
Just about everybody seems to
have a cure for the youth problem.
And when you inquire around you
will find half of those who are
wornyin' about our young folks are
gallivantin' 'round the country-
and are creating' a youth problem
in their own bailiwick by neglectin'
their own offspring.
Far as I can see, there ain't no
youth problem that requires any
ma or pa to go up and down the
country on a lecture tour. By
stayin' home and keeping' a wea-
ther eye on activities there, they
would solve the whole durn prob-
lem. But some people just like to
lecture-like my wife. They are
the problem versus youth.
But I reckon we could imporve
a little in our schools and maybe
limp along with a few less funny,
modern theories there. A little
overhaulin' at our colleges might
be welcomed by our young folks-
who knows? But our older spavins
-we gotta find some way to keep
'em home.
Yours with the low down,

OIL MEN START FIGHT ON
EXCESSIVE GASOLINE TAX

The first move in a 'forceful
fight to reduce "excessive gas0-
line taxes" was started in Fort
Myers this week when 75 oil men
formed an organization to enlist
customer support in an effort to
"put the bee" on current represen-
tative candidates.
Objectives of the group are to
cut state gas taxes from seven to
six cents per gallon, and, insist that
all such revenue be used for high-
way purposes only and the elimina-
tion of the one-cent federal tax.
Jimmy Greer, head of the Gulf-
Franklin gas men's association,
stated that the same objectives.
are being worked for by the local
organization.

Florida's motor accident death

And no wonder, says Walter M.
Parker. chief of the SLate Road De-

eral-state investigation of existing
road conditions shows that of the
6,499 miles on the state-maintained
system only about 1,200 are wide
enough, smooth enough or other-
wise adequate for present-day traf-

higher and more expensive stand-

Since the inception of the gas
tax and the motor vehicle license
fees, nearly $50,000,000' has been
diverted to other uses than roads.
Had this sum been spent on con-

all phases of highway transporta-
tion, designed to find out what's
wrong with present-day highways
and what the Road Department
must do to fit Florida roads to
traffic. Similar surveys are being
carried out in nearly every state in'
the Union under a cooperative ar-
rangement with the Public Roads
Administration.
Florida's section of the survey
began:with an Inventory of every
mile of road:in tie state. By meas-
uring, idtths and sight distances,
by inspecting surface conditions,
and by placing all this information
on maps, engineers can tell at a
glance what kind of a highway
system. Florida now has. By look-
ing at these maps, even a layman
can discover that Florida has 29,-
262 miles of rural roads.and state.
routes through cities, 7,920 miles
of city streets and that, all in all,
improving and 'maintaining this
mileage adds up to a 'terrific task.
That Florida has been unable to
keep up with traffic is shown by
the American Association of State
Highway Officials' estimate, that


on the main state highways alone
there is an immediate need for re-
building, widening or relocating
3,883 miles of road, and widening
or rebuilding 75 bridges, at a total
cost of $140,225;000. This trevmen-
dous backlog of "unfinished busi-
ness," according to the findings of
the Division of Research and Rec-
ords, can be traced partly to insuf-
ficient funds, partly to unplanned
expenditure of funds that were
available.
More Traffic-Less Money
While mileage on the state-main-
tained system has been increasing
every year, there has been no pro-
portionate increase in funds avail-
able to the Road Department. By
1938 the amount available per mile


ways are inadequate for present-
day traffic cannot be blamed en-
tirely on lack of funds. /Part of
the blame, findings of the Division
of Research and Records indicate,
must be placed on construction,
mostly dating back to boom days
when engineers had little prece-
dence on which to work in de-
signing roads for automobiles and
practically no information that
would have enabled them to fore-
cast the tremendous,.increases in
:tiaffio speed and volume that were
to occur in the 1930's. At that
time light, cheap surfacing was
slapped on a large mileage of roads
with little regard for the width or
alignment of the existing wagon
tracks, or for future traffic. As
a result, money was spent to sur-
face and maintain roads that today
carry little traffic and are of'small
importance to the state as a whole.
As figures developed by the Divis-
ion of Research and Records show,
33 per cent of the roads on the
state-maintained system carry 71
per cent of the traffic, with an an-
nual average load of 1.368 vehi-


cles per day. Compare this with
the daily average for the entire
system-594 vehicles per day!
It can be seen that Florida, with
the tenth highest motor accident
death rate in the nation, with only
20 per cent of the state-maintained
system adequate for present-day
traffic, and with less and less
money available to hake care of
more and more traffic, faces a real
highway problem. The second of
this series of three articles tells
how the State Road Department,
through the Division-of Research
and Records, has developed data
on which a sound, long-range pro-
gram, designed to take care of to-
day's traffic and that of tomorrow,
can be based.

Treat Your Dog

Now For Rabies


Health Officer States Disease Is
Easy to Prevent With the
Proper Precautions

The following article on rabies
has been received. for :pghlication
from Dr. R. J. Lamb, director of
the Franklin-Gulf county health
department, -and should be of in-
terest to everyone having a dog:
A timely warning against one of
the most fatal diseases we have
and the easiest to prevent-rabies
-is not amiss at this time of
the year as spring and summer
come along and dogs untreated,
roaming at large in great numbers,
is a very dangerous situation.
Rabies is an acute virus disease,
primarily a disease of lower ani-
mal life, usually the dog, and sec-
ondarily a disease of man. It is
always fatal 100 per cent. after it
once develops, but it can be s9
easily prevented by preventative
measures such as destroying the
roaming dogs and cats, particularly
the dogs, and seeing that pets are
treated each year against rabies,
as it is from the lower animal that
this disease usually originates.
The populace of a city, commun-
ity or county can do a great deal
to prevent this dreaded 'condition
by killing 6ff the stray or useless
and worthless dogs and cats, or by
shutting their pets up, or by
muzzling them, or Dy giving them
the anti-rabie serum once yearly.
Fortunately the incubation pe-
riod in the lower animal is only 10
days or less, while in the human
the incubation period is about six
weeks. This gives ample time to
observe the dog and give the Pas-
teur treatment to the patient.
When a dog bites, do not kill or
destroy the dog, but confine him
for observation and study, and if
the dog is all right at the end of
10 days you can feel reasonably
safe, but if the dog dies it is well
to begin the Pasteur treatment, as
we have never known a developed
case of rabies to recover. One
hundred per cent die.

The male bass cares for the
young. He builds the nest, fans it
almost constantly to keep it clean
and to circulate fresh water over
the eggs. He also protects the fry
until they leave the nest.

WHERE


Were You



The Night of June 2, 1936?


All over Florida, newspaper staffs were busy posting
bulletins, announcing primary returns over loudspeakers. Suddenly
interest began to swing away from the many important County races,
and to center on the mounting totals coming in for Gubernatorial can-
didates.
Even if you went to bed very late you had an idea any
two of five leaders could be in the run-off. Through June 3 more bul-
letins and thousands of voters were surprised when two names stood
above the rest.
One of the two had had but five small newspapers sup-
porting him; only a few of the campaign "wiseacres" or the political
bosses had given him but a passing thought. Most Floridians had not
felt that carefully timed, eleventh-hour surge of support to an un-
leashed, independent fighting "Hoss Sense" candidate.
So, there is nothing at all unusual about this April's
political groundswell. The homespun philosophy of the man who
pledged himself to, and did, protect Florida's financial standing has a
growing and tremendous practical and popular appeal.
"Cracker Democracy" is riding the crest-no mistaking
the signs. The Cone tide is coming in again-and again it is perfectly
timed. Be sure to stick around, hear the announced returns, watch
the newspapers bulletins-
