Our Country Right or Wrong
WE'LL SUFFER LEAST FROM STRIKE
While Florida like all of the nation would
feel the effects of a prolonged coal strike in
the curtailment of industrial and agricultural
activity, she is in a more fortunate position
than most other states, and Floridians as in-
dividuals will suffer less than the people of
any other section.

keep warm, for our natural resources in fruit,
vegetables, cattle, hogs, poultry, fish, an abun-

Curtailment of transportation would hit us
hardest, as it would limit the shipment of the
largest fruit and vegetable crop on record, and
would reduce tourist travel on the railroads,

than offset by the arrival of greater numbers

escape the discomforts of life in the colder and

WHOSE TAIL IS BURNING?
A couple of weeks ago the Saturday Eve-
ning Post ran an interesting article on tur-
keys. To illustrate the birds' stupidity, the
author cites instances where they roosted on
lighted flares, thus slowly roasting themselves
alive, and apparently didn't know whose tail
The magnitude of the fire loss in this coun-
try makes the Ainerican people seem alarm-
ingly like the turkeys. Fire is under and
around them-but they don't seem to know it.
One out of every hundred homes is de-
stroyed or damaged by fire each year. Every
day, on the average, 110 stores burn. Fire
* strikes in 29,900 factories each year. The daily
total of theater, hotel and restaurant fires
runs to 78. It all adds up to a total loss which
may exceed $600,0000, this year. If that
doesn't impress you, maybe the fact that fire
destroys between ten and eleven thousand
lives annually, will.
A turkey could save itself by the simple ex-
pedient of hopping off the burning flare. The
American people could prevent something like
90 per cent of all fires by almost equally
simple expedients. Proper care with smoking
materials, plus periodic inspections and repair
of heating plants and electrical equipment,
would alone effect, a gigantic cut in the loss.
Turkeys are stupid. Their instinct of self-
preservation is inadequately developed. But
we who permit loss and death by fire to con-
tinue at record levels, are in no position to
laugh at them.
A FOURTH BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT
President Truman's request that a Republi-
can congress co-operate with a Democratic
executive branch of government received gen-
eral approval .from Republican leaders. This is
especially true in the field of foreign affairs,
where Senator Vandenberg has been working
on an equal footing with Secretary Byrnes.
The president observed that the Republi-
cans had won congress by constitutional means
-while he and his associates controlled ex-
ecutive functions by constitutional means.
There can be no quarrel with that point of
view. At the same time, it must be clear to
all that one great fact produced by the elec-
tions is that the American people are heartily
sick of what might be termed the "fourth
branch" of government.
This fourth branch came into being over
the years through executive order. It has been
maintained by the executive. It consists of the
thousand-and-one boards, bureaus, authorities
and administrations which were never spe-
cifically endorsed by the American people--
and which have taken upon themselves many
of the functions of congress and the courts.
These agencies constantly hamper industry
through unworkable and obscure regulations
of their own devising. They touch every
phase of our life with the dead hand of bu-
reaucracy. In case after case, they set them-
selves up as prosecutor, jury and judge.
If congress and the executive are responsive
to the people, their first task is to rid the
country of this costly, freedom-destroying
fourth branch of government as rapidly as

Dear Editor Ball-Would like to
notify you of my change of aet-
dress, and also, even though 1
haven't received a "notice" on my
subscription, am afraid it is about
to run out. I don't want that to hap-
pen, for I enjoy The Star very
much, so find enclosed my two
bucks, for another year.
,Have been back in the good old
state of Florida about two months
now and -we like our new home so
much. This is really beautiful coun-
try here, but we miss all our
.friends In St. Joe. Maybe one o01
these days we will get back there
for a visit
In future, please send The Star
