contribution by Gulf county and
its two cities, Port St. Joe and
Wewahitchka. The county and
cities' contribution per year is

HARMONY URGED

AT ROAD SESION

HERE YET RPDAY

REPRESENTATIVES FROM ALL
PARTS OF STATE ATTEND
MEETING AT PORT INN
Absolute harmony, 100 per cent
co-operation and the forgetting of
county or sectional lines in the ad-
vancement of the best interests of
Florida as a whole, were the key-
notes struck by the score or more
of speakers who addressed the
joint meeting of the Gulf Coast
Highway and the Ndrthwest Flor-
ida associations, held yesterday
in tire lobby of the Port Inn. Ap-
proximately 100 delegates repre-
senting both organizations were in
attendance.
Large bodies of representative
citizens came from Pensacola,
Panama City, ApalAchicola and
Tallahassee. Other communities
represented were Milton, Crest-
view, Fort Walton, Beacon Hill,
Wewahitchka, Marianna, Perry,
Carrabelle, DeLand, St. Peters-
burg, St. Marks, Wakulla and Port
St. Joe.
The building of the St. Marks-
,Perry cutoff, which will shorten
the distance between Pensacola
.and Tampa, St. Petersburg and
other west coast cities and, inci-
dentally, bring considerable tour-
Sist traffic through this city, was
advocated.
It was urged that steps be taken
to take advantage of the Black
law, enacted by the national con-
gress, to do away with toll charges
over the bridges at Pensacola and
between Tampa and_ the cities of
the Pinellas peninsula.
Walter P. Fuller of St. Peters-
burg suggested that the chambers
of commerce of all west coast
communities get together with a
view toward financing a publicity
campaign calculated to make the
people of the middle west aware
of the fact that the Gulf Coast
Highway is an accomplished fact
and that it affords a mountainless
road from the north and west into
Florida.
A resolution was adopted en-
dorsing the forthcoming Centen-
nial observation of the 100th an-
niversary of the adoption of Flor-
ida's first state constitution, to
be held next December in Port
St. Joe.


BAND CONCERT

IS RAINED OUT

TO BE GIVEN SUNDAY; FINE
PROGRAM ARRANGED FOR
NEXT THURSDAY
The band concert arranged for
last Sunday afternoon on the new
civic program sponsored by the
chamber of commerce, was rained
out, to the great disappointment
of many planning to attend. It
was announced that the program
would be deferred until the same
hour next Sunday. Everybody is
invited to be present Sunday af-
ternoon at the park opposite Port
Inn.
The committee requests that
anyone willing to donate time in
assisting in building of seats or
working on tire band stand, to be
on hand at the park Friday or
Saturday mornings at 8 o'clock.
A fine program is being ar-
ranged by the entertainment com-
mittee of the chamber of com-
merce for Wednesday evening of
next week. The band will play for
general entertainment and there
will be public speaking by Harold'
Colee, president of the Florida
State Chamber ot Commerce, and
others of his party. Also invited
to be present and make addresses
are Earl Brown, manager of Flor-
ida National Exhibits; Gov. Fred
Cone, chairman of the Centennial
Celebration committee; Robert A.
Gray, secretary of state, and J. A.
Kelly, both members of the Cen-

D.-.C', DAY?
Next Sunday is "Dad's Day"-if he can
get it. Anyhow, it is down on the calendar
as Father's Day, and, theoretically, father is
entitled to occupy the position of honor in
the family.
Perhaps he will, and again there is a per-
haps that he may not. But whatever occurs,
poor old father will be the same on Monday
morning. -le will rise with the chickens, or
about the time chickens (no reference to the
girls in the family, of course) would rise if
there were any chickens about, and proceed
aboiuthis business as usual.
If someone has given him a white or red
carnation for his buttonhole on Sunday, or if
his wardrobe has been replenished by some
additional pairs of undarned hosiery and a
new assortment of ties, ?-ie chances are that
he will realize the sox and ties are going to
Junior or his brother before he can get a
chance to wear them, and that about the only
thing he will really get out of the day is a
little largcr'bill at the haberdashery tihe first
of the month.
Still, he will feel happy Sunday if he is re-
iiembered, for fathers are not the crusty,
hard-boiled, hard-hearted critters they are
usually rated in most families. They have
hearts that are big and soft and easily melted.
The frown and tthe gruff voice are merely
assumed as a part of the pose they have to
adopt to get any attention in the family. At
heart they would like to be soft-spoken, and
would rejoice in saying "Yes" every time
Junior wanted the car, even if he seldom
brings it back with all the fenders, and "Cer-
tainly" every time Janet or julia wanted a
new frock if the business was profitable
.enough to warrant it. Many times his harsh
'"No" is more in pique at inability to comply
than because he doesn't care to accommo-
date those he loves.
Dad is not a bad fellow if his family would
only get to know him-but he's to blame to
some extent .that they don't.

"-AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH"
Not long ago in Washington a senator in-
troduced a bill which would make it a pun-
ishable offense to publish in a newspaper or
-magazine any statement "known to be un-
true."
That leads us to reflect how often labor
difficulties in the past several years might
have been reduced if the true facts of the
case had always been adhered to, and the
public allowed to look them over.
In Philadelphia recently, after hearing the
facts of one such case, the presiding judge
:himself drew up the wording of the sign that
the pickets could carry, making it part of an
injunction that, they should carry his sign
:.and no other if they wanted to picket.
The text prescribed by the jurist read as
follows: "This establishment is not unfair to
,organized labor. It is being picketed because
,of a labor dispute between the Bartenders'
'Union, Local No. 115, and the employes of
this establishment concerning what organiza-
tion shall be their bargaining agent."

The man who pays as he goes generally
keeps on going and goes farther.

tein of Florida has declined. We have become

Sand kick himself for being a fool."-Milton
(,azette.
How true this is. Instead of riding those
who are habitually behind in paying their
taxes, those officials whose duty it is to col-
lect taxes keep after the ones who always
pay up, because they know they can get the
m onev for the upkeep of governmental func-
tions, and after a few "dire" warnings they
give up as a had job their efforts to get any-
thing out of the inveterate tax-dodger.
What we need is a law that will give the
prompt payer a pat on the back and any
benefits to be derived and give the tax-dodger
a kick in the pants and a heavy penalty for
failure to pay up when requested.

UNBURIED TREASURE
Not all buried treasure was hidden on re-
mote islands or mysterious shores Nor was
it all pirates' gold. Current news reports tell
1o money and hoarded gold discovered while
demolishing old buildings right in the heart
of Paris and New York.
in Paris a wrecker's ax unearthed 5000
pieces of gold valued at about 2,500,000 francs
hidden in a wall, with a will, and forgotten
since the eighteenth century. Colorfully ap-
propriate, the treasure was in a building in
the Latin Quarter.
In New York, workmen demolishing the
old Civic Repertory theater on Fourteenth
street, where famous stars trod the boards a
generation ago and Eva Le Gallienne held
forth for a season or two more recently,
were showered with several hundred dollars
from a floor being removed. Bills and coins
that looked genuine dropped from above and
scattered over the wreckage. Inspection re-
vealed that they were not stage money, but
real.
Evidently the money had been stored in
old money bags long ago--by whom and why
can only be guessed. Though the bags had
disintegrated, the money was intact. Each of
the workmen shared in the find.
Though it is a prosaic job, most of us are
content if we can dig up enough money to
pay the tax collector and the grocer. Yet
who can say romance has entirely vanished
from modern life when hidden treasure shines
in the news?-Christian Science Monitor.

Next Wednesday will be the longest day
of the year-and what are we going to do
about it? T'robably the majority of us will go
fishing, as the stores close for the regular
half-holiday, which will give us time to land
that big one before dusk.

The salvation of the country lies in the '
South, according to Henry Ford. Also, many
of those who talk about the salvation of the P
country lie in the South, North, East and
West.-Tampa Tribune.

It looks like the day would be wasted if
a European nation doesn't receive at least t
one insult--or give one.

Stardust and

By The Other Fellow


I read a magazine article the
other day which stated that "out
o. the seventeen hundred million
human beings on earth, probably
o.ily three hundred, million, have
oeor read or ever will read a
Look. All the rest are able to live
in one \ oay or another despite
their inability to read about the
ways in which their ancestors
solved the problems, of life."
Confronted with such a depress-
ing fact, I am inclined to wonder
whether the effort to add to hu-
man knowledge is not futile. We
could easily fall into that attitude
did we not know that the burdens
and responsibilities of civilization
have always been carried by a
pitifully few-and probably al-
ways will be.
In any group the number who
possess the intelligence to under-
stand what is going on about them
and who feel -any desire to influ-
ence the outcome, probably does
not exceed one in five thousand.
In government, in business, in
science and in the fine arts, the

to add that a century ago it was
inch blacker. The light
is penetrating, slowly but surely.

The human organism is a deli-
cate thing. Men really are not
made of cast-iron, with tire rubber
for muscles and bridge cables for
nerves. Every man has
his, breaking point.
True. brother, true. .. .But
why do 38%2 men stand up and
argue to every one who sits down
and thinks?
Why will a man fight at the
drop of a hat, use up a week's en-
ergy in a futile five-minute gab-
jag, and then go to the office and
get sore because competition tires
him out?
Competition is there all right,
always was and will be.
In order to compete, let us, con-
serve our business energy and de-
velop our business, s-kill.
Let's stop getting sore and, begin
getting busy.
