Ladies To Form City
Not to be outdone ,by their hus-
bands and boy friends,. a number
of the so-called "weaker sex" put
their heads together this Week.and
came up with the idea of a basket-
ball league 'for the ladies.
They've got a superb idea there,
which should result in quite a num-
ber of "friendly" hair-pulling .con-
tests and attempts at mayhem. So
any of you girls, who have' a craving
to get out on thele floor at the Cen-
tennial Auditorium and display
your prowess at ,basketball are re-
quested to attend a meeting at the
Centennial Buildiing at 6:30 this
evening and' sign up. If you cannot
make the meeting tonight, contact
Mrs. Ray Wood' or phone Mrs. Bus-
ter Ow'ns at 38-W.
weeks ago when the McCoy Stores
-grocery, dime store and men's
clothing--said' "No .soap. We're go-
ing 'to stay open Wednesdays." Im.
mediately the rest of the merchants
came in upon Ye Ed asking if the
McCoy Stores hadn't signed the
agreement. We informed them that
they had, but that we couldn't do a
thing about it, not having the power
wielded- by Joe Stalin. -
So the rest of the merchants got
'together Tuesday night at the city
iall and agreed that in spite of tihe
breach of agreement by the McCqy
SStores, they would,,..stick to their
closing hours and days AnaT

Twelve recommendations for streamlining
the legislative process will be presented to
ti;.c Florida legislature and 43 other state legis-
latures scheduled to meet this year. The rec-
omnmendations are contained in a report just
published by the Council of State Governments.
The only four state legislatures not sched-.
uled to meet in 1947 are those in Louisiana,
Ken;tucky, Mississippi and Virginia. Sessions
"in all other states will-begin in January, ex-
cu:l)t in Florida and Alabama, where opening
dates are April 8 and May 6, respectively.
Key recommendations include those aimed
at broadening state merit systems to include
kl.. legislative personnel, consolidation of
o. erlapping legislative committees, and in:
creased pay for legislators. The recommenda-
tions were formulated by the council's com-
..mittee on legislative processes and procedures.
The committee also considered such vital
questions as legislative reapportionment, uni-
cameralism, annual versus biennial sessions,
and voting procedures. But considered them
beyond the scope of its current report.
,um mary of the recnimmincndationi. follows.
1. Remove restrictions on length of regu-
lr legislative sessions. "Legislatures cannot
properly fulfill their functions without ade-
quate time to dispose of the public questions
before them." Sessions now are limited in
2. Remove constitutional restrictions on
legislators' salaries. "Annual salaries must be
sufficient to permit competent persons to
serve in legislatures."
-. Iroaden merit systems to include key
legislative personnel. "The tenure of legisla-
tive personnel should be unaffected by changes
ii; i;;rtv c,,ntrol."
4. Reduce the jumble of legislative com-
mittees tlirough consolidation and reorganiza-
tion on the basis of subject matter and co-
5. Provide for public hearings on all major
bills. "Advance notice of such hearings should
be published well, in advance."

HOLLAND AND PEPPER
Florida's new senator, Spessard L. Holland,
has expressed the hope that members of the
Florida congressional delegation can work to-
gether on matters pertaining to affairs of the
state. There is no reason to doubt that this
co-operation will. be accomplished.
As one pauses to regard national., and inter-
national issues, however, there is plenty of
room for-speculation as to how close' Senator
Holland and Senator Claude Pepper will work.
Senator Holland is on record in support of
the administration's bi-partisan foreign policy
while Senator Pepper has been one of the
sharpest critics of that policy, particularly
with regard to our relations with Russia. The
line is clear-cut there.
On the other hand, Senator Holland has
never been considered a fot of labor, but is
likely to vote considerably to the right of his
colleague on matters pertaining to industrial
questions. Hle has expressed himself in favor
of effective governmental machinery to curb
work stoppages in the vital industries of the
It is doubtful that Senator IH olland, who es-
tablished an enviable record as wartime gov-o
ernor, would have remained silent on the is-
sue of the coal strike as did Senator Pepper in1
hls New Orleans speech.
Senator Holland is not given to snap judg-
ment, as his record shows. But he is hardly
one to ignore completely one of the biggest
problems facing this nation today-the need
of intelligent and unbiased legislation to pre-
vent industrial stress and at the same time in-
sure the production and standard of living of
which our nation is capable. 4

INCOME TAX EXPERTS
Linton Urges Veterans
Reinstate GI Insurance
Bill Linton, Gulf county service
officer, in ni-aking an appeal to vet-
erans who have dropped their ser-
vice insurance to have it reinstated
at once, said: "If action is taken-
before February 1, 1947, you may
reinstate your Gi insurance (as
canried in the service) without a
medical examination by paying two
monthly premiums at the same
rate as that paid while in the serv-
ice. You may reinstate your insui-
ance in amounts from $1000 up In
multiples of $500 up to the max.-
mum of $10,000, if you desire less
than you carried previously, at cor-
respondingly lower rates,
"You may have this insurance
paid in a lump sum or in equal
monthly installments from 3'6 to
2-10 months to your beneficiary, or
part as a .lump sum and the rest in
installments. You may name any-
one. or your estate as beneficiary."
Linton pointed out that before
the termination of eight years from
the effective date of a term policy
it may be converted into a perma-
nent type policy as follows: Ordi-
nary life, 30-payment life, 20-pay-
ment life, endowment at age 65,
endowment at age 60, or 20-year
Information as to rates for the
various policies, procedure for re-
instating, converting, making claim
for waiver, etc., and the forms
necessary for accomplishing any
of the above may be obtained at
the pl'fice of Mr. Linton in Wewa-
