Asks Protection

For Our Childrei


Urges That Motorists Do Not Pas
School Buses Loading or Un-

By C. L. COSTIN
Gulf County Superintendent of
Public Instruction
Several reports have reached my
office of vehicles passing school
buses in Gulf county while en
gaged in loading and unloading
school children at regular sched
uled stops. It is not my desire t.
o Ci-. hardships upon any citizen
of Gut-. county or upon other
traveling the highways of Gul
county. IH wever, the safety o
school children who are placed ii
our care and who ride on school
buses to and from school is ou
major concern.
School officials of Gulf count:
have seen to it that children liv

distance from school are provided

ported, pupils, and now it remains
the responsibility of the public who
drive other vehicles to co-operate
with us to the extent that they, as
individuals, see that the lives of
our future generation are not en
dangered while making their way
along or across a highway while
going to or leaving from a school
bus.
Pupils who are being trans-
ported are virtually safe as long
as they are within a school bus
operating in this county. Our
school busses are practically fire-
proof and non-crushable. By the
use of mechanical governors we
are assured they will never ex-
ceed a reasonable rate of speed.
They are thoroughly checked once
each month for any mechanical
defect or dearrangement and are
kept in good repair.
The main issue at present is the
disregard of motorists to observe
:he following law:
Chapter 14552, Acts 1929, Ex-
tra Session, Sec. I-Motor ve-
)icles to stop upon approaching
-chool buses. "Every person

motor vehicle upon or over the

TAKE THE PROFIT OUT OF WAR
We were going to write an editorial on the
war situation in Elurope, but the way things
stand as we write this we haven't the least
idea about what may happen, except that
from the looks of things hell will be a-poppin'
shortly-and may be when this editorial ap-
pears in print.
Most people around Port St. Joe are ask-
ing the question: "Will the United States be
drawn into the conflict?" And our answer to
this is: "Probably it will, eventually."
But the matter would be considered long
and deeply by the powers that be if some sort
of measure were taken to remove the profit
from war. If that incentive were removed it
would take a mighty big reason to make the
United States join in the conflict-and then
the only reason would be self-defense.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars introduced
a bill in congress last spring that would do
just that-take the profit out of war as far
as we're concerned. But no action was taken
on the measure and it was left up in the air
when congress adjourned.
The plan of the war vets was simplicity in
itself. It would boost sky-high the income
tax schedules. Under the proposed bill, war-
time income taxes of 10 per cent would be
levied on all individuals, after deduction of
personal and dependents' exemptions that
would probably amount to about $1200 on the
average. In addition, there would be surtax
rates running from 10 per cent to 93 per cent
on incomes over $20,000.
Corporations would be taxed 15 per cent
on net incomes not in excess of 2 per cent of
their adjusted declared value, 25 per cent on
their adjusted declared value, 25 per cent on
net incomes not in excess of 6 per cent of
their adjusted declared value, and 100 per
cent on net incomes above that level.
And there, dear readers, is a simple plan
that would prevent anyone from getting rich
out of war. It would be an incentive for
everyone, from the lowest to the highest, in
seeing to it that we did not go to war. And
in case we were put on the defensive it would
provide the cash to pay for what was neces-
sary to conduct the campaign.
But will such a measure ever be passed by
congress? Hardly! Millions would be spent
to prevent its enactment. The only way it
could possibly have a chance of being put
across would be by having it voted on by the
people of the nation as a whole.

A CURB ON CANVASSING
The following editorial is reprinted from
the Panama City News-Herald and contains
a couple of good suggestions that might be
taken up by the Port St. Joe Chamber of
Commerce as a protection to the business
men of our city. At present, when one of
these solicitors puts in an appearance, he or
she is generally referred to the secretary of
the local chamber:
The arrival of fall, we think, is a good
time to reiterate our contention that some
curb should be exercised upon charity solici-
tations.
When any community does not exercise
some such curb then such solicitations for this,
and solicitations for that, soon grow to such
proportions that business men are often in-
clined to feel that they don't hear anything
except: "Give Give! Give!"
Some giving is necessary. Many worth-
vwhile institutions-yea, many an absolutely
necessary institution-is dependent for its
existence on the charity in the hearts and
pocketbooks of the community's citizenry.
But the fact remains that if some curb is not
exercised, solicitations soon get out of bounds.
Since business people always bear the
brunt of such a canvass, and since the one
organization most representative of the busi-
ness life of the community is the chamber of
commerce, this organization long ago took
action to keep solicitations for gifts within
the bounds of reason.
The chamber provided that any organiza-
tion planning a general canvass should make
a request to the chamber, which in turn
would appoint a committee to investigate the
merits oi the request. This committee, whose
personnel would be kept secret, would make
a report and members of the chamber would
be expected to abide by this report.
Naturally any committee of business men
would approve a canvass for funds for the
Salvation Army, Red Cross, a church, Boy
Scouts, and related worthwhile objectives,
but solicitations "today for this, and tomor-
row for that" would be cut out.
We would like to see the approval of a
chamber of commerce secret committee be-
come a requisite before giving by business
men of the city throughout the coming sea-
son. It provides the best protection we can
think of for all against a continual: "Give!
Give i"

BONE-CRUSHER'S BREAK
The great sport of wrestling, as approxi-
mated in the United States today, has finally
lit on something.
The shot in the arm which ugly- rumors
had intimated was necessary ought to be ad-
ministered any day now. The formula for the
injection must certainly have revealed itself
to promoters in a blinding flash when Joe
Reno and Roughhouse Ross went at it in
M1inneapolis the other day in a ring buried
beneath 315 gallons of strawberry, chocolate
and vanilla ice cream.
Mud-wrestling was, as you might say,
something of a flop, but when it led to sun-
dae-wrestling it led to a field of unlimited
possibilities. The star that wrestling can now
hitch its wagon to is, of course, the great
American shooting star of commercial ex-
ploitation.

BLACK PEPPER PRODUCT
OF PLANT FROM TROPICS

White Brand Is Also Made From
Berries of the Piper Nigrum

Common black pepper is :the
product of a trailing or climbing
plant cultivated in the tropical re-
gions. And to those who think that
a little pepper (particularly when
inhaled) goes a long way, it may
be interesting to note that the
United States imports about 50,-
000.000 pounds each year!
The plant from which black pei-
per is obtained is called Piper
nigrum. It bears a small berry
about the size of a pea, which
turns red when it is ripe. The ber-
ries are picked just before they
change color, then cleaned and
dried, either in the warmth of the
tropic sun or before a slow fire.
The berries turn black as they
dry. After the drying process is
complete, the berries are ground

"You will remember that the

did this by giving the liquor taxes
to this fund. These taxes had been

in the last year of the preceding
