SALE OF AUTO
Schools This Year Will Receive
$500,000 More From Vehicle
Department Than In 1937
Florida schools will receive ap-
proximately $500,000 more money
.from the motor vehicle depart-
meent i 1938 than they did in
1937, and. a million dollars more
than they received from the de-
partment in 1936, D. W. Finley,
motor vehicle commissioner, said
this week when he issued his de-
partmental report foi- the third
quarter of the year.
Total receipts for the first nine
months of 1938 amounted to $6,-
029,000 the record shows, as com-
pared with $5,863733 for the en-
tire' year of 1937, and $5,238,734
for all of 1936.
. The report shows 436,993 tags
sold in the three-quarters of this
year as compared with 447,965 for
all of 1937 and 308,160 for the en-
tire year of 1936. This ran parti-
ally be accounted for, Commis-
sioner Finley says, by a stricter
enforcement of the law.
In the first nine months of. this'
year $5,918,317 has been turned
over to the schools, as compared.
with $5,507.926 for the entire
year of 1937, and $4.920,640 for all
of 1936. In June or this year the
schools were given $250,000 from
the surplus in the operating ex-
pense fund. In November, 1937,
they received $175,000 from this
fund and in November of 1936 they
received $100,000 from the surplus.

Unique Bridge Will Be Used On
Woods Railroad Over Canal
The St. Joe Lumber and Export
company this week received two'
locomotives for use on their rail-
road which will bring logs to their
mill now nearing completion here.
The .locomotives, secured in Geor-
gia, were brought in on. flatcars
over the Apalachicola Northern.
This will give the company three
engines on their 25-mile line.
. A unique bridge will be used
on the line where it crosses the
canal near White City. It will be
mounted on a huge steel barge
and 'the- rails will project, about
five feet at each end. When the
bridge is to. be, used it will be
floated into place and water let
into the barge, allowing the bridge
to sink into position, the project-
ing rails fitting into grooves in
two concrete abutments. After use
th water wll be umpedd from the
bgq .and- it will be allowed to
swit,: into a special mooring
The line, of the company's rail-
road follows the grade of the old
St. Joseph & Iola railroad, which
operated out of St.. Joseph in 1835,
and Basil E. Kinney of the lumber
and export company. states that a
number of the old ties have been
uncovered in laying the new line.

' A SHIRTTAIk SHORTAGE'
C. S: (Shirttail) Smith o-Greenville,Miss.,
has evolved a theory that will not only solve
the South's cotton surplus problem but will
bring comfort and protection to suffering
males by adding nine inches to shirttails.
Smith claims that in the, "godd old days"
shirttails were 38 inches long anrd :that. today
the standard for shirttails is 29 inches. He
states that adding these extra inches to all
shirts would not only bring"health and pros-
perity to the South by increasing cotton con-
sumption, but would add a new joy of living
for all men.
"The manufacturer, not being uhider re-
strictions has cheated the cotton surplus out
of nine inches of cloth," says Smith. "Add
this shortage to the hundreds of millions of
shirttails--and there's the remedy. Simple
and inexpensive., The theory is at least a par-
tial cure, for our great economic ills. Yet it
Sis so simple, and the remedy so easily applied
it is almost unbelievable. Our country is slow
to apply the remedy .because it is just too
t sinple,.too inexpensive. We look for costly,
complicated, distastetful remedies."
We believe the old boy-: has something
There. We can remember a good:' many yearsL
back that when we tore our shirt a, piece was.
cut out of the tail for patching purposes with
no chance of the cut-out showing. Now.when
oir wife cuts even an inchl off-our shirttail
for a patch we have the. devil's own time
keeping that corner of the shirttail. from
working up over our belt.
Yea, verily, let's- pass ,a law lengthening
our shirttails. It seems that, the- manufac-'
turers are conspiring: against us, for nowa-,
days when we tear our shirt we throw it irt,
the rag bag, but if. there were sufficient tal,
to patch the upper portion they could be sal-
vaged-which would cut down on the number
of shirts sold, and we would be right back
wh'liere we are today.
'Anyone v,'Nhl:O travels through thl c'-..uit .try-

hardest hit by last month's hurricane were
our friends, the trees. 'On many a historic

giant trunks which alr,:-a.l1, were venerable
half a century ago, have been strewn like
nmatchwood. I-uge oaks on Long Island, whole

ing in the Hudson valley, ancient pines and
maples and poplars in the whole devastated
area are gone from their .accustomed places.
T'he slowly ripening beauty of the years
which makes of a fine tree one of the noblest
works of nature has been-daid low in the

But it is not only the mature and majestic.

reach of coast where the fury of the gale
and the tides carried salt water inland far
beyond its accustomed bounds, thousands of
home grounds have been ruined. Ornamental
evergreens and -flowering shrubs, carefully
nurtured perennials and finee turf, built up
by years of patient effort,, have been ruined
by the ravaging sea. The loving work of years
is all to do over again, and even a generation
will not suffice to obliterate the scars of the
resilient people. 'Fortunately, too, we are in

ASK TWO-TAG LAW
Would Put License Plates On Both
Front and Rear of All Cars
In a special resolution, released
yesterday by the secretary, the
Florida Peace Officers association
urged the state motor vehicle com-
missioners and the state legisla-
ture to consider and pass neces-
sary legislation requiring both a
front and rear registration plate
on all motor vehicles operated in
The resolution states: "It has
been th a experience of the law en-
forcement officers or the state
that having only one pate on the
rear of said motor vehicles has,
in many instances, been to the
detriment of the enforcement of
the statutes of our state pertain-
ing not only to traffic, but also
to the criminal code."
It was suggested that the front
plate carry a small betterr "F" and
the rear plate an "R" so there will
be no possibility of persons report-
ing one of the plates lost and then
utilizing it on another vehicle.

School Parity Amendment And
Three Other Will Be On
Florida's present constitution, al-
ready amended 80 times since it
was adopted' in 1885, will have
four more changes if voters, ap-
prove them in the November 8
The proposed amendments are:
1. Establishing public school ap-
propriations. on equalityy with ap-.
propriations for other govern-
2. Broadening homestead tax ex-
emption 'to incfud*' widows mi-
nors and. others,, not heads of fan-
iies, who own and occupy their
3. Requiring 30 days public no-
tice before introducing local bil:s,'
including bills applying to munici-
palities, in tre state legislature.
4. Prohibiting appointment or re-
moval of Florion National' t4uard
officers exept upon proficiency
basis estab~ihed by .army regula-
Supporters of the amendments

Public school appropriations are
I now based upon $800 annually for
each teacher unit, which is one
teacher and 30 pupils. Some reve-
nues, such as automobile license
fees and. gross receipts taxes, are
allocated directly to schools and
cannot be used for other purposes.
If these are not sufficient to pay
the full school appropriation, the
remainder must, come from the
state's general revenue fund.
The proposed amendment put-
ting school appropriations on an
equality with others; would re-
quire that if there is not enough
money in the general revenue fund
to pay all expenses, the. amount
allocated to schools would be re-
duced only in the same proportion
as others are reduced. The su-
preme court has 'held that ex-
penses of the constitutional state
departments must be paid first,
and that schools can get only the
remainder when money is insuffi-
cient to meet all expenses.
It pays to advertise-try it!
