CELEBRATE ES TODAY


Armistice Day To An

Ex-Service Man


So we come to another Armistice Day.
STwenty years have gone since that day we cele-
Sbrated with such verve and. vigor at the eleventh hour on
the eleventh day of the,,eleventh month in.,1918. But 20
years at our age is' no particularly heavy burden; many
-oft us came out of our: uniforms to cast our first votes
and we still celebrate the occasion with nearly as much
vigor as we did then.
'But we celebrate in 'a somewhat different.spirit. The
eight of war's tragedy has been lifted; buddies who
'" went west" are not-forgotten, but they do not seem so
near. The burden of that "last long .mile" no longer
-Fangs on our shoulders, ears no longer ring with the
I,'r6ar 'of high explosives and, the spitting of the machine
g:uns; our nostrils no longer are assailed by the stench
rising from No Man's Land. It is becoming ever more
difficult to carry the memory back over 20 years and re-,
alize the contrast between one minute to eleven and ,one.
.minute past-the heavens literally blanketed with a
.heet of steel and the ear-drums numb from the con-
tinual crash of guns and shells. Then at eleven the com-
rl '/rte cessation of all firing.
: God., wasn't that a great moment!
But 'for the time the recollection of this moment
enters little into our reactions to each succeeding Armis-
'"tic.e Day. We are' still kids, even though most of us
:"i'rry a paunch About with us-we want our fun. It's a
preat time tn meet Ahe .ide-kickers. of the old days. .So
piradinii and blackjack, speech-making, 'dancing hnd
r erhao-. the galloping dominoes and, a snort or tw\i of
vin blanc make up our, day;
Except when we bow oitr heads at 11 o'clock and
the silvery-sweet -notes of "Taps" reach down into our
I-earts in the moment of silence.
Qan ~ou truthfully say that a tear doesn't stand in
your eye and a lump come into your throat during that
t ndlifint?

very near future.
Surveyors have laid out marking

understood that the only holdup
at present is due to the fact that
there is some debate as to whether
concrete or wood piling shall be

Conserving State's

Seafoods Has Been

A Major Problem

Requires Patrolling of 4400 Miles
of Shoreline In Which 8,000
Fishing Boats Operate

The immense importance of con-
serving andl replenishing Florida's
wide variety of seafoods' has, been
one of the major problems faced
by Governor Cone's administration.
For 400 years white men have
been fishing commercially in Flor-
ida. Through these centuries Na-
ture has ,been able to provide man
with an abundant supply of sea-
foods and to renew this supply un-
aided, until *in recent years de-
structive machines. and' methods
used by reckless' men have threat-
ened to deplete and to destroy the
state's once vast resources.

legislature, Governor Cone realized
the danger faced by Floridaus great
fishing industry and introduced the
act creating the shellfish commis-
sion, which was the forerunner of
the present conservation depart-
ment.
When he became governor, be
appointed Robert L. Dowlifig, ohne
of the state's outstanding business
men, as supervisor of the conser-
vation department and instructed
him to make a thorough study of
the situation and not only to en-
force the conservation laws, but
to devise means of rebuilding the
state's seafood resources.
This is' a tremendous task re
quiring the 'patrolling of about
4400 miles of shoreline, much of
which extends into fresh water
lakes and up tidal rivers. Florida
waters produce commercially ap-
proximately 60 of the 120 or more
edible fish found in the United
States arid yield annually more
than i37,000,000 pouzis. TShesatae's
total land area is estimated at
-35,000,000 acres, of which about
2,841,000 acres are iniandi waters.
The great belt of coastal waters
extend from 10 to. 40 miles in width
and almost surround the state.
About 8000 fishing boats are used
in the industry.
It is estimated that Florida's
commercial fishing industry repre-
sents an annual turnover of $20,-
000,000, that about $10,000,000 is
invested in equipment and that
fully 75,000 Floridians, depend up-
on this industry for their daily
bread,
As a lure for tourists, Florida
fishing is second only to her cli-
mate, and nowhere else in the
state can such fine fresh water
fishing be found as in.Gulf county.
It is conservatively estimated that
tourists spend annually upwards
of $75,000,000 to enjoy this won-
derful sport in Florida's, waters.

Reveals That 49.4 Per Cent of Gulf
County Pupils Over Age; 35.6
Per Cent Are of Normal Age

The Florida school boy who
failed, last year because he liked
his fun better than his, lessons
will find consolation in a report of
the age and progress of children in
elementary schools. to' be issued
'this month by Colin English, state
superintendent of public instruc-
tion.
More, than 60,000 white elemen-
tary pupils have been retarded at
some time by failure to "make the
grade." This is 36 per cent of the
white enrollment in the first six
grades.
The ageigrade study for Gulf
county reveals that 15 per cent of
the children are at least one, year
younger than the normal age for
their grade, 35.6 per cent are of
normal age', anid 49.4 per cent are
over-age.
The state. superintendent's study
is.being prepared from reports sub-
mitted by all Florida teachers in
the first six grades in an effort to
determine for the first time the
age and progress of all elementary
students in each county of the
state.
One cause of slow progress is
entrance of children in school be-
fore they are sufficiently developed
to acquire the ability to read. The
study shows that 20 per cent of
Florida children in the, first grade
hadi entered when they were only
five years old. Twenty-nine per
cent of the beginners repeated
their work in the first grade, yet
only 38 per cent of children in the
sixth grade had failed at any time.
The small schbdl's have a higher
proportion of over-age pupils than
the large schools. This varies from
45 per cent for one-teacher schools
to 31 per cent in those' schools
having more than 20 teachers.

FLORIDA WILL HUNT
MINERALS BELIEVED
TO BE HIDDEN HERE
Believe State Has Great Deal of
Minerals Yet Undiscovered

At the request of Washington
WPA officials, the proposed mil-
:ion-dollar geological survey proj-
ect sponsored, by the conservation
department, has. been revised and
broken up into a number of indi-
vidual projects, R. L. Dowling,
state supervisor of conservation,
announces.
The first of the revised projects,
a $100,000 WPA mineral survey,
has been .approved by Robert J.
Dill, state administrator of the
WPA, and forwarded to Washing-
ton for final approval.
Florida has', perhaps, a great
wealth of minerals which have
never been found, according to
Dowling. The conservation depart-
ment hopes through this survey
:o locate and map the real min-
eral resources of the state for fu-
iure development.
As tentatively approved, the
mineral survey will furnish em-
ployment for a number of s.cien-
ifically trained men who are in-
adequately provided for in other
phases of relief work and will
provide employinent for a large
lumber of men who can perform
he detail work incidental to the
survey.
The revised mineral survey will
be divided into a number of county
projects, according to present
ilans., Dowling saaid.

ARMISTICE DAY

On a gray morning in France twenty years
ago, the bugles blew the "Cease Fire." The
shout which went up from the trenches was
heard by a world which forgot its weariness
and despair; rivers of blood ceased to flow
and war was ended.
In the days which followed many brave
resolutions were made and many fears enter-
tained. It was predicted it would take forty
years to remove the trenches, dugouts -and
ruins in France; that Germany, down and
out, would have a revolution; that Bolshe-
vism would spread, 'and that the World War
vwiould be the start of many wars.
Most of us remember how we talked when
the armistice was signed. There was solemn
dedication then to the new program to make
future wars impossible. Today, twenty years
after, we look back to review what has. been
done, to wonder if the fine fervor which was
ours has been in some way dulled.
For all the lessons, those which came in
the armistice hour when the pledge was
"never again," and those which have :been
brought home by. nations forced to reckon
the costs, the idea of Al is not yet remote.
Guns roll across the Pacific irnChiina r6fo'ps
,march in Europe, and nations continue to pre-
pare- for another alarm.
On this dayl as we turn our. thoughts to the
men who entered the fury of the.worst of
wars in history, who went forth bravely to
fight for principle, gave, their lives,- health
and: -._i., ; ,, we should dedicate ourselves
to doing our utmost to keep America out of
any similar future conflict.
Our parades and wreaths and speeches qn
Armistice Day will always stir our patriotic
instincts, but they will not have obtained the
best results possible unless they impress-upon
-all people the fact that peace is better than
war.
But there is one product of the war of
which we may be proud and thankful-the
American Legion, whose day this is. It has
given us a body of men in every community
in the United States keener for good, through
their experience, -than the average body po-
litic. Too much can not be said of the war
veterans for, as a group, they hold notes
against the public which can and will ever
be paid in full.

If bustles really are returning, as prom-
ised, we want to be around the first time one
is maneuvered into a rumble seat.-Clermont
Press. And we'd like to see what it looks
like when it is maneuvered out of a rumble
seat.

You can always tell when a European coun-
try's really got its back to the wall: The
head of the government has to cut his week-
end short.-Boston Transcript.

A flaw in Dr. Townsend's plan seems to
have. been that he failed to designate a cer-
tain day of the week as payday.-Savannah
News.

Comes a report that more than 800 lan-
guages are spoken in South Africa. Every
man his own minority.-Boston Transcript.


"IF"
If all the prophecies of the breaking up of
the British Empire come true.
If democracy is overthrown in Europe and
Asia, and is forced to cling feebly to the
southern tip of Africa, and to entrench itself
in the New World.
If all Europe, Asia and Africa, and all of
their millions are turned over to the winner
in the totalitarian and communistic war 'to
the death-the victor in either case must be
an irreconcilable foe to democracy.
Would not Neville Chamberlain's' name
stand for the weakling who succumbed to
fear and betrayed modern democratic civili-
zation ?
It wotfld be hard to find in all history a
single apparently unimportant act which so
quickly set into motion political changes of
such vast importance. Nothing has happened
in any country recently which has meant to
much to. that country itself as the Munich
surrender.
It has added taxation burdens to us which
Swill total more than the expense of all the
SNew Deal spending, which was considered
Unprecedented. It has influenced our future
world trade more than anything congress has
Sdone in a generation.-Bonifay Advertiser.

CONSEQUENCES OF CRIME
The state pardon board will meet in No-
vember, and approximately--one out of three
inmates of Raiford will apply for pardons-
not for parole, in the strict sense. Mean-
while the case of Franklin Pierce McCall,
found guilty of kidnapping little Skeegie Cash,
has remained in status quo so long that it
b ids fair to be forgotten.
'Those two. facts illustrate in a, nutshell
what is wrong with Florida's present system
So.f handling convicted law-breakers. It lets
the public forget, then it frees them, whole-
sale, to save the state the expense of keep-
ing them. But the encouragement thus given
*0 crime. has results more costly than the sum
av.ed by releasing a few hundred priasners
once or twice a yea.
-.e 'are not opposed to leniency; under
proper conditions a certain amount of leni-
ency ihay actually cause crime to decrease.
B'ut. we.are opposed to anything that makes
punishment slow or uncertain. The Florida
criminal code needs revision to make punish-
'ment more swift and certain; and there
should be no hope of escaping the conse-
quences of a crime, once convicted, except
under the supervision of trained and experi-
enced parole officers qualified to protect the
public against a return to crime on the part
of those released.-St. Petersburg Indepen-
dent.

"DEMOCRACY"
One of the most startling things about the
"recent unpleasantness" in Europe was hear-
ing the word "democracy" bandied about.
Wierd definitions were given it by defenders
of the totalitarian nations. To us as Ameri-
cans it has come to be a meaning-not politi-
cal, not vague-simply that the will of the
people must prevail.
The great war was fought supposedly to
.make this world safe for democracy. Now we
see that our'-energies must be absorbed in
making democracy safe for the world. We
have learned that the voice of the people is
not always the voice of God, and that "to err
is human." Wisdom and good government
can never be attained merely by brute num-
bers who make the loudest cry.
Democracy should mean "governmnet of
the people, by the people and for the people."
The accent should be on "for the people."
This brings us to the point that the best in-
terests as well as the will of the people must
prevail.-Lake Wales Highlander.

Where once -his lifeblood ran red,
So let your rest be sweet and deep

Fear not that you have died for

The torch ye threw to, us, we

No shrapnel's shriek. No. cannon's

The whispering grasses o'er them

No more the bivouac fires they.

No more a hel'l-filled trench they
brave.
They rest in peace, nor Know or

If the last fight was lost or won;
They gave their all-when lifevas
