Is Against WP,-A Work

W. G. Hardy,/ candidate for
county commissioner from the
Overstreet district, 'Was in The
Star office yesterday and stated
that a whispering campaign had
been inaugurated against him to
the effect that if elected he would
be against continuing WPA work
in Gulf county.
"I want to deny this statement,"
said Mr. Hardy, "as I ami and al-
ways have been in favor of th'e
WPA work-in fact, for the past
four years I have been a member
of the Gulf County WPA Planning
Board.. If I am elected as commis-
sioner I will do all in my power
to help sponsor projects for the
county, and will work for a county-
wide project with sufficient means
to keep our WPA workers em-
ployed through a period sufficient
to build or construct roads ana
other projects throughout our
county."

"We feel that Poppy Day wil,

have increased meaning to Amei-
ica this year," said Mrs. Fuller,
"because renewed warfare in Eu-
rope has renewed the memory of
those boys of ours who gave their
lives 'over there' 22 years ago, It
is for them that we put on the
poppy sale each year, to show that
we still remember and honor their
sacrifices. It is the flower whici
grew where they fell and which
now blooms on the coats or
Americans who appreciate their
service.
"The men who make the poppies
gain from them interesting ana
helpful employment to fill the
bleak hours of illness and con-
valesence. They gain money to be
sent home to needy families. The
other disabled veterans, their fam-
ilies and the families of the dean
receive from the poppies yea>

The One Way To

Find Tuberculosis

By R. J. LAMB, M.D.
Health Department Director
There is always one way whict
is the shortest and surest. The
one way to control and eventually
eradicate tuberculosis throughout
this country in the shortest time
is to make a deliberate search for
the disease with the X-ray among
apparently healthy persons.
The early diagnosis campaign
being held this month by the
Franklin-Gulf Tuberculosis associ
action is to bring out clearly the
sureness and economy of this way.
If we continue to do little about
the prevention and cure of tu.
berculosis until we are forced to
treatment by the appearance oi
undeniable symptoms, we, as indi-
viduals and, as a community, may
as well admit that we are using
the wrong tactics to control the
disease,
tuberculosis is one of the few
diseases that seldom show any
symptoms u4til the body is losing
its fight with the germs. When
symptoms do appear, in many
cases health is irretrievable and
the germs may have spread to
;any other persons.
,Our defense against this in-
sidious characteristic of tubercu-
losis is to discover its presence in
the body before symptoms appear.
The search can be quick and in-
fallible. Such a program is imprac-
tical obviously, but the X-raying
of various. large groups already
started canl gain speed and be ex-
panded to include an increasing
number of persons. The problem of
group X-raying can be narrowed to
the groups in which the disease is
most prevalent.
Tuberculosis is primarily a dis-
ease of adults, particularly young
adults. Hence groups composed
Inostly of persons between the
ages of 15 and 45 are the logical
groups to X-ray first. Industrial
groups, labor organizations, in
fact, any group assembled for
work, study or recreation, are the
needed nuclei around which to
build programs for tuberculosis
testing:
As in all progress, the beginning
is made by an individual. We, as
individuals, know now what we
can do to control tuberculosis. We.
can be tested and examined for
the disease and advocate others
doing the same. If tuberculosis Is
to-be eradicated, we must begin
a well-directed search for it
among apparently healthy people.
This month's tuberculosis cam-
paign will close the latter part of
this .month by X-raying Monday,
May 27, in the Masonic hall in Port
St. Joe, and May 28 at ApalachI-
cola, over Austin's store.
If you wish to have an X-ray ot
your chest made, ask your physi-
cian for a request blank and pre-
sent it to the health department
on these dates at these locations
and Qie department will be glae
to X-ray your chest.
I am urging the co-operation or
every citizen, both white and coi-
ored, in making this campaign on
tuberculosis beneficial to all of us.

The Ford Motor Company was founded
by a working-man for working.men. Its
present officers began as employees of the
Company. It was the first company to pay
a minimum wage, beginning in 1914, at
the then astounding figure of $5 a day.
That was double the prevailing wage of
the time. The Ford minimum is now $6
a day for all employees engaged in pro-
duction work. And from that, the wages
rise to $10.80 aday, with te average wage
$7.25, exclusive of salaried employees.

pany was the first large Hery For

knowledge that working conditions in
the Ford shops are the best that science

square deal, a just wage and stabilized
employment for a large proportion of
our employees-and as fully stabi-
lized for all as conditions will permit -
enable our men to retain their personal
independence.


Inconsequence of these policies the Ford
Motor Company has one of the finest
bodies of employees in the world. The

family men. Hundreds of them have
been with the Company for more than
25 years thousands for more than 15
years. Their health record, home owner.

WE WONDER
The editor of The Star was in. Tallahassee'
Saturday evening and heard Francis P. White-
hair deliver a speech on behalf of his candi-
:dacy for governor, in which he stated that'if
he is elected governor he will not be under
obligation 'to take orders from any bosses or.
political big-wigs.
That is a very good attitude on the part
of Mr. Whitehair, .iut it caused 'us to wonder
why it was necessary for him to make such
a statement. 'Was he trying :to quiet in ,the
minds of his listeners any reason they had to
believe that he might be the henchman of a
political machine?
We, as well as thousands of other persons
believe so. And the reason is that Whitehair
is being backed by Pat Whitaker, Tampa po-
litical boss; Charlie Silva, Florida labor boss,
and their organizations.
Why should these Tampa politicians choose
to support Whitehair? Perhaps he hasn't.
committed himself to these men and perhaps
:he intends to,,take nq orders from them. But
the fact still remains 'that with ten other can-
didates in the gubernatorial race Whitehair
was most acceptable to them for governor.
Elections in Tampa for years have been
noted for being one-sided, the most notorious
case being that in 1934 when Claude Pepper
was beaten in Ybor City by an'enormous vote
after carrying the rest of the state.
We wonder why'Mr. Whitehair is the fa-
vored candidate of the Tampa politicians.

RED CROSS APPEAL
By RAYMOND J. KELLY
National Commander. The American Legion
The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse
again are crunching human flesh and blood
with giant strides. In the wake of war and
invasion, following the havoc wrought by
modern weapons. of destruction, millions oi
our fellow human beings will soon be reduced
to conditions of stark want and privation.
There is no more worthy and pressing task
before the American people today than in the
national endeavor to aid war-afflicted civilian
populations in 'other countries
More than any other'part-of our citizenry,;
Legionnaires are familiar with war's accom-
panying corrolaries of pestilence, starvation
and suffering. They. have viewed these man-
made disasters .in their naked, unadulterated
forms.
The American 'Red Cross is low engaged in
"the effort to raise a $10,000,000 fund for the
purpose of alleviating distress-and want aris-
ing from overseas conflict. Throughout the
years of the American'Legion's existence, our
'posts,'districts, departments and--the national
organization h a v e associated themselves
closely with the relief programs of the Ameri-
can. Red -Cross.
As national cotnmander, I now'"urge all Le-
gionnaires to contribute to this $'10,000,000
relief fund and to assist in the'securing of
the local quotas 'for their communities.

Many printers think they have to cit prices
'to 'gt 'trdePrs. They atre a'fr'aid 'to lose anor-
der and take anything they can get "to keep
their plant busy." Such printers ordinarily
pay their men as little as the law allows and
consequently have a poor 'class of workmen,
and soon it develops that they DO have to
take less for their work to make up for the
lack of quality.

We don't believe that bugaboo yarn about
one of the belligerents planning to drop germs
from airplanes ipon its 'enetnies. Where
would they findparachutes .small enough?-

America may be a young nation, but old
enough towunderstand how foolish it is to mix

Holland deserves your vote


For the reason that his training, experience and familiarity with govern-
mental problems equip him to serve the People of Florida as Governor more
-capably than any other man seeking the office.

HOLLAND'S LEGISLATIVE RECORD SHOWS
That he has never been dominated by any, group or organization. Her has always
shown equal and full consideration for the thoughts and ideas of everyone-rich or
poor, large or small, HE IS FAIR.
HE IS HONEST. No individual or group interested in legislation, has ever had
to worry about Holland "selling out" nor have they had to wonder or? worry about
"wh.o talked with him after We left."
HE HAS WORKED FOR THE GROWERS AND FARMERS. At the request of
the citrus growers of the state, Holland sponsored the laws they prepared-either
new laws or improving the laws passed in 1935 and 1937. He likewise worked for
vegetable, tobacco, cotton and livestock producers.
HE HAS WORKED FOR SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT, by assisting in passageof
the Florida School Code, The Teachers' Retirement Act, etc.
HE HAS HELPED MERCHANTS AND BUSINESS MEN by opposing the fre-
quent efforts to secure the passage of a Sales Tax. He opposed the Gross Receipts
Tax-leading the fight to repeal this tax which works such a hardship on the small
merchant. He likewise sponsored the. Fair Trade Act.
HE HAS BEEN A FRIEND OF LABOR, having sponsored the Workman's Com-
pensation Act, the Unemployment Insurance laws, and in many other ways has fought
the fight of the laboring man in the legislature.
HE HAS BEES A LEADER IN MANY CONSTRUCTIVE PROGRAMS, including
Old Age Assistance, Public Welfare, Conservation, Health, care of Crippled Children,
Blind Persons and Dependents, Free School Books and many humanitarian measures.

HOLLAND'S PROMISES
(And Holland Doesn't Break His Promises)
Include his promise to appoint to state boards; commissions, and other state
groups only men who are peculiarly fitted by experience and ability to hold the job
to which they are appointed. He also promises not to appoint any members o0 his
family to state jobs.
Holland promises sensible economy in those departments of state affairs com-
ing under the jurisdiction of the Governor, thereby setting an example for other state
departments to follow.
Holland promises to lend his every effort to bring about the development of a
sound and equitable.tax program.
He promises to develop and maintain a cordial feeling between the ;Governor's
office and the Legislature, which is essential if the public is to get the results and
service they are entitled to.
He promises to represent all sections of the state in a fair and impartial manner.
HOLLAND IS IN EVERY WAY FITTED TO BE GOVERNOR!

This time the Higgins' are p'ei-

into buying a ramshackle hotel In
a.ghost town in Nevada. Sid Hig-

gold has been found and a stream
of would-be prospectors pour into
the town. The truth is learned ana
the prospectors prepare to lynch
Joe Higgins (James Gleason) in
revenge, whereupon Grandpa goes
to work to save his son-in-law. The
manner in which he maneuvers his
way to success provides a hilarious
climax to an entertaining film.
Others is the cast are Harry
Davenport, Lois Ranson, Tommy
