BITTER S P E E C WITH PURCHASES
Florida Senator Berates Those
WORDY BATTLE RAGES
California Senator Pleads For
Claude Pepper, 'energetic -Flor-
iia senator, .made the nation's
headlines when, during the cosb-
Sing hours of congress, he took the
floor to make an impassioned
speech in defense of President
Roosevelt and the New Deal.
Biie rly berating those who had(
,giasistently opposed administra-
tion measures, he shouted: "I am
unvwilling to let this session of the
congress end without lifting my
voice to d'ecry the unholy alliance
of those in and out of congress
who have been willing to scuttle
the American government and the
American people and jeopardize
the peace of the world because
they hate Roosevelt and what
Roosevelt stands for."
Quick to retaliate, a half dozen
-senators were on their,feet and a
wordy battle .got under way. Sen-
ator George of Georgia demandeac

United States senate. a

The bitter debate was brought
to a close when Senator Morton
Downey of California pleaded for
understanding between s e n a t e
members, and added: "God help
us if we cannot meet our prob-
lems in a spirit of tolerance and
recognize the right of the opposi-
tion to present its own views."

to be held in Port St. Joe next

Commander S. B. Brown 'presided
in the absence of the commander.
It is believed that the celebra-

best ever. as it .has been learned'
that few posts in this section or

(FNS)-Terming advertising and
publicity "the state's greatest
need: today." Mayor Walt:er I.
Fraser of this city elaborated on
the suggestion he advanced at the
meeting of state publicity men at
Silver Springs last week, explain-
ing that while a few cities and
independent Florida attractions
are getting excellent results 'from
very limited advertising invest-
ments, the problem of selling the
state as a whole should be under-
taken by a board' or bureau set up
for this purpose and supported by
state funds sufficient to tell Flor-
ida's story as it should be .tolc.
Until a better place is found to
get a state advertising fund, Fra-
ser suggests that one-half of the
seventh cent of gasoline tax
which now goes to the general
revenue fund should be allocated
to publicity, which would provide
about $1.250.000 for this purpose.
Contendiing that the ex:;enditure
of this amount in an intelligent
and constructive advertising an -
publicity program for the state as
a whole would irmed iateiy come
back to us in the form of in-
creased revenues from additional
os'- tax. racing and in many other,
forms, he urges that the thought
be given Cerious consideration.

THE FARMER GETS WHAT'S LEFT
Farmers of Gulf county will be greatly in-
terested in a statement by the department
THE SOUTH AND LOW WAGES
Mayor LaGuardia made some remarks
about the effort being made by the South to
attract industry.from the North that are very
false in one sense and very true in another.
When he says that the South is wrecking
our industrial system by drawing industries
from the North he is saying what is not
necessarily true. When he says the South
does industry and the nation a grave injus-
tice by appealing to northern industry on the
grounds that we are a low wage area, he says
what is absolutely true. Moreover, there are
many southern people, and many more merely
calling themselves southern, who arq doing
that very thing.
There is no reason why the South may
not share with other sections of the United
States the advantages of industrial develop-
ment in their midst. It is unthinkable that
any one section should enjoy a monopoly on
industry. Such a monopoly would be eco-
nomically' unsound and socially unjust.

Another is the policy of adding new taxes
on food products. These are mostly hidden
taxes which the housewife doesn't see on the

the selling price and likewise add nothing to
the farmer's share. Neither does it add to
the profit of those who handle the goods,
nor does it add to the quality of the goods.
