astic representation.

previous meeting were read and
approved. A general discussion

when the date for game has been
set.
A committee was appointed to
meet with the'school board at the
next regular meeting and discuss
possibilities of a band director.
The committee is as follows: Mrs.
J. T. McNeill, Mrs. M. L. Fuller
and Mrs. John Lane.
All persons interested in having
a band in the city and especially
those who have children in the
band, are urged to help in this
worthwhile cause. A band is an
asset to any community, so alt
are urged to join the Band Boosters
club and lend a helping hand.

The home of Wilbur Wells,
on Eighth street, was struck
by lightning Monday after-
noon during a storm that
lasted about 30 minutes.

other damage reported from

fuses in several homes in the
same neighborhood.


Military Training Is

Step Nearer Reality

Senate Committee Approves Re-
vised Measure Calling for Re-
registration of 42,000,000 Men

Compulsory military training
moved a long step nearer reality
Friday when the Senate Military
Committee approved a revised
Burke-Wadsworth bill providing for
registration of 42,000,000 men, of
whom 1,500,000 would be drafted
in the first year.
SDetails remain to be worked out,
but in the main the measure calls
for:
1. Registration of all males be-
tween 18 and 64.
2. Actual: -cotii'n'.s- ipdff of about
1,500,000 'men between, 21 and 30
during the first year, starting
October 1, 1940. There are an es-
timated 1,500,000 between these
ages.
3. A training period of one yea.1
for those selected.
4. Base pay equal to that of the
lower grades of tne regular armed
forces, starting at $21 a month.
5. Later draftees to be cnosen
from the 21 to 45 age groups.
The men would be classified for
exemptions by local boards, simi-
lar to the World War draft boards.
Men with families, or men em-
ployed in national defense work
would be placed in deferred groups.
The war department contem-
plates that youths between 18 and
21 and pmen between 45 and 64
would be available for home de-
fen'se service. Legislation provia-
ing this probably will be submitted
to' Congress later.

Railroads Protest

Issuing of Permit

For Gas Pipe Line

Aver Former Road Department
Head Had Promised
Hearing First

Challenging the legality of a
permit granted May 23 by Arthur
B. Hale, then chairman of the
state road department, for the in-
stallation of gasoline pipe lines
across state-owned highway rights-
of-way in construction of a line by
the Southeastern Pipeline company
from Port St. Joe to Chattanooga,
Tenn., emphasizing the economic
and physical hazards attached to
the operation of such lines in'
Florida, a group representing rail-
road employers and employes last
Friday appeared before a session
of the road department at Lake
City.
The 'charge was made by -several
speakers that Hale had signed the
permit shortly before his resigns
tion was accepted by Governor
Cone, although he had "promised,"
the speakers said, that he would
take no such action unless a pub-
lic hearing on the subject were
held.
-Speakers for the railroads stated
that the state would lose a huge
amount in taxes from railroad
properties if construction of the
pipe line were to be permitted,
and that rail -mpl'ynient in the
stafe '',d ula dri p aiout' 6 per cent.
Hale, in a statement to the
press said that letters were written
to all objectors to the pipe line
permit asking them to file their
objections with the road depart-
ment, andi that not a single reply
was received.
"In view of the fact that the
state of Florida, through its in-
ternal improvement board, had en-
tered into a legitimate transac-
tion, closed it and collected the.
money, I don't know of a more
flagrant example of bad faith than
tlis attempt to deny'the pipe line
company of the rights and privil-
eges which they had' paid for on
such a flimsy pretext," said Hale.
The gist of the whole matter is
that the oil companies can save
a huge amount yearly by sending
gasoline through the pipe line
instead of shipping it in tank cars,
while the railroads want to keep
the revenue from gasoline ship-
ments pouring into their tills.

HIGHWAY IS MILITARY ROAD

The Overseas Highway, connect-
ing Key West with the Florida
mainland, has been designated a
military road, according to Sena-
tor Claude Pepper. Federal and
state road department engjeerg
estimate that $4,100,000 will be re-
quired to construct bridges and
put the road in proper shape for
emergency military use. The fed-
eral government will be asked to
bear the major portion of this ex-
pense.
------ ---
PANAMA CITY DETOUR
Due to resurfacing of 18 miles
of highway between this city and
Panama City all traffic to the. w.es
is now being -detoured to Wewa-
hitchka and thence over Highway
52 to Panama. It's a long way
'round. but better than following
a five-mile-an-hour grader waiting
for'a chance to pass.
The friends of Mrs. J. A. Chr-st-

mas regret to learn of her illness
and wish for her a speedy ra-
.covery.

THE MEANING OF DEMOCRACY
Today this country stands unified, devoted
to the proposition that here, if nowhere else
in the world, democracy shall be preserved
and made secure.
And the people are coming to realize that
the preservation of the democratic system in-
volves more than merely spending billions
for military weapons, important as that Is.
The preservation of democracy means that
we must again analyze the meaning of de-
mocracy-and again return to those principles
on which the nation was founded.
Those principles are simple and basic.,Cer-
tain powers were given to' government-the
power. over 'currency, over national defense,
over foreign policy, and so on. The balance
of powers were reserved to the people. The
founders realized- that government is a non-
producer--that all production and creation
must; come from the individual. And they re-
lized'that strict limitation of the activities of
government was necessary if freedom was to
live.
In recent years we have been drifting away
from-true democratic government. We have
put government into business. We have all
but destroyed the :rights- of the states. _. WVe,,
have gone a long way toward the ruinopff;
theory that government owes everyone a liv-
ing. We have destroyed local independence,
local pride, local self-sufficiency. We have be-

come a nation of beggars, feeding at the pub-

This has cost us tens of billions of dollars
in taxes and increased federal debt. Yet,
serious as that problem is, it 'is the least im-
portant phase of the trench. Vitally important
has been the change for the worse in the
American character-the loss of those tra-
ditional characteristics of independence and
self-reliance. Dependence always breeds dic-
tatorship. Dependence always menaces lib-
erty and the democratic way of life.
If democracy is to live, the democratic vir-
tues of self-reliance and independence must
come back into their own. Government must

cause 31 Pacific coast stations cut off Hitler's

to suggest that NBC, CBS and all other-U.
S. broadcasting systems refuse to rebroadcast
any future Hitler speeches so .that they all
will be blacklisted and we won't be able to
listen to the ravings of I this mad dog of
Europe. (If Herr Dietrich reads this, he'll)
probably take The Star bff his propaganda
