Road Patrol Soon

To Be Organized

Will Be Financed Through Bill
Providing for State
Drivers' License

TALLAHASSEE, June 8 (FNS)
-S-reedy organization of Florida's
state road patrol was forecast-
here today as 'the 1939 legislature
left for Governor Cone's approval
a bill iol,,-i idil for a state driver's
license and another measure au-
thorizing the establishment of a
new departmd-if'to enforce safety
laws on the highways. The road
patrol bill vests in the governor
full power to make all appoint-
.i ments, including the:'patrol direc-
tor. 'Money derived from the i1
censes will be usea to finance the
patrol... *
A fee of 50 cents will be charged
for each license and $1 .for chauf-
feurs' licenses. Tne law requires
that there license shall always, be
bn the person while driving. Li-
censes will be revoted for using
a car to commit a crime, drunken
driving, for hit-and-run driving
and false ,rsrtr."r r;. Suspensions
will occur when' a driver has been
in two or more accidents andi for
forfeiture of bond, which is con-
sidered a conviction.
Drivers now driving, who have
driven a car for one year or more,
can get a permit without an ex-
amination. In the future all new
applicants will be required to take
an examination.
No person under tne age of 16
can operate a car, neither can a
person who. has been convicted of
using a car to commit a crime or
who is an habitual user of nar-
cotics, the feeble-minded nor an
insane person. Deafness will not
bar a person from securing a li-
cense, nor would any physical de:
fect which could be remedied.

Six Issues to Be On

November Ballot

Legislature Passes Constitutional
Amendments To Be Sub-
mitted To Voters

As a result of tlhe 1939 session
of the Florida legislature, six
constitutional amendments will be
submitted to the electorate on the
November, 1940, ballot for ratifi-
cation.
They are:
An amendment to add a seventh
justice to the supreme court to
prevent tie votes.
-An amendment to insure con-
tinuation of 'equal distribution of
race track monies among the 67
counties of the state.
Elimination of real estate taxes
for state purposes.
A proposal lengthening from
two io four years the terms of
county commissioners..
An amendment 'providing that
property of widows will be ex-
empted from taxation on a value
in to $500.
An amendment authorizing a
state parole system similar to
that of the federal government.


Continued Receipts Increase
Will Soon Warrant City
Delivery Service

Indicating the rapid growth of
Port St. Joe during the past two
years, the Port St. Joe postoffice
will be advanced to the second
class on July 1, according to no-
tice received this week by Post-
master H. A. Drake.
The business or the office has
shbwn a continued growth since
developments were started here
in the spring of 1937. Postmaster
Drake reports an increase of 239
per cent in postal receipts for the
quarter ended March 31 of this
year over the same period in 1937.
It is quite unlikely that any other
postoffice in the state of Florida
has shown this rate of increase
.iiiug the period stated.
Early in April of this year, the
office was moved from the .old
cramped quarter into the new
leased building erected by the
Masonic lodge. The new location
affords a much more comfortable
arrangement, but ir the present
growth continues, according to
Mr. Drake, it will soon be neces-
sary to add additional nests of
lock-boxes to ,the 553. already in-
stalled!
In this connection, it is hoped
that the office receipts will In the
near future allow the establish-
m'enet of city delivery service.
Such a service would serve our
people in a more convenient man-
ner and would do away with the
long waits during window conges-
tions at the office following ar-
rival of mails. There are, of course,
certain other requirements for
the establishment of free delivery
service, such as good sidewalks,
house numbers andt street paving.
The advancement in class of
the local office definitely places
Port St. Joe among the growing
cities of Florida, and if postal re-
ceipts continue to increase on the
same scale in the future as in the
past two years, undoubtedly our
postoffice will in a few years be
in the first class.


In order to keep up church at-
tendance during the coming sum-
mer months, Rev. D. E. Marietta
of the First Methodist church and
Rev. J. W. Sisemore of the First
Baptist church have joined forces
in the promotion of a joint church
loyalty campaign which will open
next Sunday and continue through
August 13.
The series of ten sermon topics,
which will be given in each church
at the same tima, promises to
be something unusual, and every-
one is urged to attend one of
these churches each Sunday dur-
ing the campaign.
Topics, with comment, for the
series, follows:
Sunday Night, June 11-"What
Sin Causes the Most Sadness?" If
you could' remove one sin from the
world and only one, what would
it be? What sin breaks more
hearts and causes more sadness
than any other?

Ninety and Nine." This service

CONE CUTS STATE

DEFICIT BY VETO

OF RECEIPTS TAX

Contends Schools Would Be
Closed Without Income
From Merchants

Governor Cone Tuesday vetoed
the legislature's bill repealing the
one-half per cent gross receipts
tax which produces' $2,000,000 a
year for public schools. Without
the money, the governor said,
"practically all or our public
schools will have to be closed."
"The gross receipts tax which
this bill seeks to repeal," the gov-
ernor wrote in his veto, "was or-
iginally passed, for the benefit of
Ihe school system.
"The legislature of 1939, just
adjourned, has failed and omitted
to provide funds for the schools,
although it did increase the ap-
propriation for them, and in-
creased, many other appropriations
without making any provision to
play said sums of money.
"If this bill becomes a law, the
schools will have no funds to pay
for operating expenses, and prac-
tically all of our public schools
will have to be closed.
"As much as I am in sympathy
personally, with relieving the tax-
payers of many aax burdens,
which I have at all times sought
to do. I cannot sign-this bill, and.
therefore, I veto tie saine.""'
The legislature raised the pub-
lic school appropriation, by voting
$1,400,000 emergency fund for
each of the next two years, in ad-
dition to the $11,385,000 already
provided.

Jack Garner Will Seek

Presidential Nomination


Close friends of Vice-President
Garner disclosed Saturday that he
has decided to seek the presiden-
tial nomination at the 1940 Demo-
cratic convention even if President
Roosevelt should be a candidate.
Garner was said to be convinced
that his name should go before
the convention, regardless of the
.strength of any opposing aspirants
for the nomination, and that he
had approved efforts of supporters
to line up convention delegates in
his behalf.
A Garner-for-President organi-


nation already has been formed
and has mailed about 30,000 let-
ters to Democratic voters urging
support of Garner for the presi-
dential nomination. His friends
feel that he will -have an excel-
lent chance for the presidential
nomination if he exerted his in-
fluence to win delegates.
Some of Garner's supporters be-
lieve he could make political cap-
ital by breaking his self-imposed
rule of silence and speaking out
on national issues during. the next
few months.

Vice-President of the United States, and leading in the poll of Democratic
candidates to succeed Roosevelt.


Personal Glimpse

Of 'Jack' Garner

By Old Friend.

A rare, intimate glimpse of John
Nance Garner, the man, is contained
in a column entitled "Perspective,"
written in News Week magazine by
Editor Raymond Moley, former as-
sistant secretary of State under Presi-
dent Roosevelt.
"It's true that Mr. Garner is pic-
turesque," he says. "But he's pictur-
esque only because his method of life,
which is simple and natural, contrasts
so weirdly with the sham living that
goes on in Washington. So far as I can
see, he's a man who lives his life as
he wants to live it. If he were the
manager of a ranch or the president
of a banl or the publisher of a news-
paper with no possible political ends
to serve by 'quaintness,' he would still
do just about as he does.
"He doesn't live simply because he
wants to get vptes. He lives that way
because he is a simple man. He re-
fuses to go out to dinners because he
wants to go to bed early and get up
early. He smokes cigars because he
likes cigars. He goes hunting because
he likes to hunt.
"The Garner scheme of things
shoutsto the world: Here 1 am-no
mystery, no deception, just a man
trying to do his job. Speaking politi-
cally, if that's what you want, O..
If it isn't what you wan., good-by and
no hard feelings.
"There's nothing cheap or unreal
about all this. No man who's putting
on an act can serve in the Congress
:of the United States for 35 years and
still keep the affection and respect of
his discerning colleagues.
"Mr. Garner doesn't read an awful
lot, except the newspapers. He learns
a lot from talking to people. The gar-
den of his mind is carefully pruned.
"Now that it's become fashionable
again to salute the flag and stand up
when The Star-Spangled Banner' is
played, it can be said with impunity
that no man loves his country with
more unabashed fervor than Mr. Gar-


ner. If he seems to be less concerned
about resounding phrases like 'Amer-
ica's destiny in the world' than some
others are, that's because he's so pas-
sionately anxious to see America be-
lieve in itself. He's convinced of the
durability of democracy as a way of
life for tht American- people. He
knows that any danger democracy
faces in the United States eomes not
from without but from within-when
people grow careless, indifferent,
tired.
"Mr. Garner is no nineteenth-cen-
tury free trader. He believes in pro-
tection for American farmers, for
American industry. He believes that
the concentration of financial power
witnessed in the last generation was
bad for the country. But, unlike
Borah and Brandeis, he doesn't look
with horror on big business. He takes
the view that probably some busi-
nesses are more efficient when they're
big and some businesses are better
for the public when they're little, and
that it's the government's job to try
and find out which are which. He
profoundly believes that much of the
early New Deal legislation was sound.
but he shrewdly points to a lack of
coherence in its later phases.
"He's for organized .abor. but made
no secret of his alarm over sucL ex-
cesses as the sit-down strikes: to him.
the sit-down strikes were nothing
more or less than a forcible seizure
of private property. He's against the
continuous growth of spending in the
government-not only because he sees
financial chaos at the end of such a
course, but because spending has been
accompanied by increasing executive
indiscretion.
"No man has exercised more power
in Congress over the years than Mr.
Garner. It is a power that does not
rest on patronage. The vitality of his
mind, the ripeness of his political
judgment, the warmth of his affection.
his unfailing, unmitigated honesty
have compelled the admiration of Re-
publicans as well as Democrats, of
radicals and conservatives, Eastern-
ers and Westeners. All this despite the
tradition that the Vice Psesidency is
a role of impotence.
"Mr. Garner has made a throne out
of a political sarcophagus."

Hardy Family

Is Coming Again

In New Picture

Sixth of Series, "The Hardy's
Ride High," Introduces New
Members of Cast

The sixth of the Hardy Family
pictures, titled "The Hardy's Ride
High," plays Sunday and Monday
at the Port Theater. The new
story taks the familiar group to
Detroit in response to the start-
ling news that they have inherited
a fortune.
The same cast which has scored
in previous pictures appears again
with several additions. Lewis
Stone portrays Judge Hardy;
Mickey Rooney is again the irre-
pressible Andy; Fay Holden ap-
pears as Mrs. Hardy; Cecilia
Parker is the daughter; Sara Ha-
den is the maiden Aunt Milly, and
Ann Rutherford enacts the role of
Mickey's girl friend, Polly Bene-
dict. Don Castle is the admirer of
Cecilia.
New in the cast, are Virginia
Grey, appearing as a cabaret'
glamour girl who attracts Mickey;
Minor Watson as an admirer of
Aunt Milly; and John King as a
young millionaire.
The family encounters legal dif-
ficulties over the expected fortune
in Detroit. Judge Hardy, facing an
opportunity to win the money by
a bit of dishonesty, faces the is-
sue -squarely and they return to
Carvel. as poor as ever but equally
as honest.
"Let Us Live' wednesday
"There, but for the grace of
God, go I" may be considered the
true theme of "Let Us Live," play-
ing Wednesday at.the Port.
True motion picture entertain-
ment, the picture deftly weaves
romance, murder, injustice, tragic
*error, fear andi hope in brilliant
fashion. Appearing in the cast are
Maureen O'Sullivan, Henry Fonda
and Ralph Bellamy.

Gasoline Tax Bills

Sent To Governor

Claim Measure Will "Save Coun-
ties" and Provide Money for
State Road Department

Now awaiting the 'signature of
Governor Cone to become law,
compromise gasoline tax bills,
adding $262,749,000 to amounts to
be paid to counties for roads they
built, were passed by the house
last Friday in short order. They
already had been approved' by the
senate.
The bills broaden and extend
far into the future the original
ideas embraced in laws passed in
1931 which set up state repayment
to counties for roaas they built
and turned over to the state high-
way department.
The 1931 laws provided for the
counties to be paid $107,688,000.
The new bills provide for the
counties to be repaid for interest
they have paid andi Interest stiB
to be paid on originally issued
highway bonds. These items total
$237,086,288. In addition. counties
will be paid, for $25,663,200 worth
of other roads they have built.
,Representative Burks of Pasco
called the program "the greatest
piece of legislation," because he

said it would "save the counties
and at the same time tale care of
the road department" in its main-
tenance and construction of high-
ways.

WHAT! NO BREAKFAST?
Jimmy: "Did; your father com-
plain about my staying so late
last night?"
Julie: "No. On the contrary. He
asked me how I could be so
thoughtless as to let you go to
work without any breakfast."

It pays to advertise-try it!


George Pierce Wood, represen-
tative from Liberty county and
general manager of the DuPont
interests in Port 'St. Joe,. where he
spends 95 per cent of his, time,
was paid tribute last Friday by
the members of the house of rep-
resentatives at Tallahassee for his
services as speaker by the adop-
tion of a resolution as the 1939
session of the Florida legislature
drew to a close.
The resolution, signed by every
member of the house, follows:
"Be it resolved by the house of
representatives:
"That it is heresy declared to
be the sense and sentiment of this
house and of each and every
member thereof:
"1. That H.on. G. Pierce Wood,
as speaker of this house, has ex-
ecuted his duties in such accur-
ate and efficient manner as to jn-
vite the admiration and respect of
every member.
"2. That the decisions of Hon.
G. Pierce Wood as presiding of-
ficer of this house have been uni-
formly and invariably fair, just
and beyond criticism.
"3. That by his cheerful and
tireless efforts to expedite the
business of the house without
denying to any representative a
fair opportunity to perform his
own official functions, Mr. Wood
has well earned the .gratitude and
admiration of the people of the
state of Florida, as well as the in-
creased affection and respect of
the members, of this house.
"4. That at the end of the ses-
sion, after many soul-trying days,
every member of this house bars
in his heart the deepest feeling of
confidence in and high esteem for
its speaker, Hon. G. Pierce Wood.

and noble significance of its message to the
entire world, especially in this day of dicta-
tors. It carries a message of national inde-

patriotism.
It symbolizes national independence and
popular sovereignty. It iis not the flag of a
reigning family, a royal house or a power-
mad individual, but of more than one hun-
dred twenty million free people welded into
a nation, one and inseparable, united not only
by community of interest but by vital unity
of sentiment and purpose; a nation distin-

its citizens alike of their duty and privileges,
their obligations and their rights.
It incarnates for all mankind the spirit oQ,

of justice, and attainable by obedience to
self-imposed laws.
Let us accord our flag honor and loyalty!

WE FISH, AND FISH, D F AND FISH
Tle editor couldn't close up shop last
Thursday to go fishing on the opening day,
and there was too much job work to get off.
Friday, but he did manage, by locking the
front door to keep out custoiners, to get
away by.Saturday noon and put in a half day
on the Dead Lakes.
Now we never did claim to be tops as a
fisherman, but we generally managed to
bring home enough to cover the bottom of a
good-sized skillet. Not so Saturday, however,
for all we caught was half a dozen dinky
little bream that we tossed back as soon as
we removed them from the hook.
Our wife was pulling in enormous shell-
crackers and bream, but all we could do was
sit and cuss. We changed- our worm for May
flies, we spit on the bait, we got out and
walked around the boat three times, we
called upon the spirit of Izaak Walton to
come to our aid-but all to no avail-it just
wasn't our day to catch fish.
We're going again at the earliest oppor-
tunity and we intend to sit in that boat un-
til we develop corns if it's necessary to do
that to bring home a string.

That series of ten feature Sunday night
services laid out by Rev. D. E. Marietta of
the First Baptist church and Rev. J. W. Sise-
more of the First Methodist church, begin-
ning next Sunday, strikes our fancy, and it
is our intention to endeavor to hear all of 'em.

We understand Dave Sholtz is considering
running for United Stites senator against
Charles O. Andrews. "Our Dave" (self-
styled) ran a poor third against Claude Pep-
per in the last election.

d ONE FOR RIPLEY
California's Hi Johnson said in the senate
Wednesday that someone ought to tell "Be-
lieve it-or-not" Bob Ripley about the sugar
quota ruling of our national government. "I
believe," said the senator, "he would be in-
terested in many of the inconsistencies to be
found in it (the farm program).
"Do you suppose Ripley would be startled
to learn, that Florida, with the finest soil and
climate conditions for growing cane, is not
permnitted to grow sufficient to make sugar
to supply the needs of Florida and is com-
pelled to buy sugar for her own consumption
from Cuba, although- amply able to supply
herself."
Caustic criticism, but deserved. Yes, some-
,one should tell Ripley about it. Better, tell
the president, and Secretary Hull, who makes
these reciprocal trade treaties and who, with
Secretary Wallace, imposes such fool restric-
tions on the productive power of the country.
Truly, as the archbishop of Canterbury re-
marked when, on a visit to this country a few
years ago he was asked by a newsman what
he thought of the federal restriction on the
production of foodstuffs, "it looks as though
you people (of the United States) are throw-
ing- God's gift into -His face."-Bradenton

to familiarize themselves with it,
they subscribed for the local

in a few months they came to

could talk intercstmgiy and intel-

APPRENTICES NEEDED
James R. Reed, field'agent for the state

a problem that has been and will continue to
confront industry in the future. That prob-

With colleges and universities overflowing
with students trying to crowd into the pro-
fessions, there is scarcely a young man today
trying to learn a trade. Machinists, masons,
carpenters, bricklayers, printers, electricians
and all other trades are being neglected, and
the time is not far distant, as the men now
engaged in those lines are steadily growing
older, when a tradesman will command a bet-

Projected City Will Be Settled By
People of Arabic and Syrian
Descent and Birth


DUNEDIN, June 8 (FNS)-An
unique community will be founded
near here-to be known as the
city of Mecca. The purpose of the
project is to afford' people of
Arabic and Syrian descent and
birth a place where they can live
together in homes of Arabic archi-
tecture and observe all the tradi-
tional customs of their homeland.
The city was created by a special
act during the last week of the
state legislature, the bill provid-
ing for the'city limits to include
180 acres, with provisions for fu-
ture extensions.
The new city, namedl for the
famous hgly Moslem eity of Mecca
in -Arabia, will be located about
two miles from Dunedin on State
Road 229. It will te laid out un-
der the supervision of Sheik Kah-
lil Ben Ibrahima Al-Rawaf of
niejd, and' George Deeb of St.
Petersburg, former Panama City
contractor.
A church and school will be
built in addition to the homes, and
a Mecca corporation already has
been formed to establish a fac-
tory in the city. Tne plant will
manufacture ladies' dresses, bath-
iing suits, robes, uniforms and
men's cotton apparel, and is ex-
pected to give employment to a
large number of the new city's
citizens.
After people become established,
city officers will Te ertcted, and
Mecca will operate under the city
manager form of government.
It is expected that growth of the
new city will be rapid, as recent
figures show some 500,000 people
of Syrian and Arabic descent in
the country today.
