KEEP THE CIGARET TAX
There has been a lot of talk going on here
of late to call a special session of the legisla-
ture for the main purpose of repealing the
state cigaret tax due to the fact that revenues
are piling up in the state's cash box faster
than they can be spent. We say keep the
When the tax law was enacted at the last
session of the legislature it was the belief
that, due to the war, racing would be discon-
tinued in Florida and the state would lose ,a
large source of revenue. However, such has
not been the case. And on top of that, the
cigaret tax is bringing in considerable riore
than was anticipated.
Okeh, we have more money than we know
what to do with. If we're going to have a
special legislative session, let's devote part of
it to allocating all that surplus cash. And we
know three places where it is needed badly.

We feel sure that cigarct smokers would
not object to continuance of the tax, now

the publisher of The Star from time to
time why we don't publish a monthly state-
ment of the city's finances so that the people TO SAFEGUARDI

cows should work as hard as though

build their bodies, put on from 100 to
200 pounds body weight and add from
40 to 60 pounds to the weight of the calf.

hay or pasture-and plenty of It-is
the first essential of successful dry cow
feeding. Give them all they want.
Limit silage to about half the amount
of feed during the milking period,

60-day dry period. Breed cows 3
months after calving. Then dry off 7
months later. This will allow for 10
months milking and 2 months dry.
4. FEED DRY COW RATION. Dry
cows will do best when conditioned on
a 12% protein, high-mineral dry cow
ration. This can be bought ready-
mixed or made with your own oats
and bulky, high-mineral supplements.
