copy for his ad ,that we had to

Teachers of City Glee Club To
Will Be Honored Present Concert
"Appreciation Day" Will Be Ob-
served Sunday With Reception
And. Church Services
By MRS. RALPH SWATTS
P.-T. A. President
Since the :beginning of the school
year, the. leaders of the Parent-
Teacher Association of this city
have urged' not only the parents
but all of the people of the com-
munity to show more appreciation
for the teachers' of our schools for
the splendid work they are. doing
on behalf of our children.
In recent years, our teachers
have worked against great odds'.
Due to lack of space, a proc-
lamation by Mayoi Horace W.
Soule, proclaiming Sunday, April
13, as "Teacher Appreciation
Day" has :been. omitted from this
is-sue of The Star. However, we
can all assume that the procla-
mation has been issued and act
accordingly. The dearth of space
was, caused by Hizzoner's insist-
ence that we run a special Pu-
rina ad for him, which you will
find on page two.
The teacher shortage, inadequate
buildings, equipment' which is not
up to par-even a shortage of
necessary textbooks--are just a
few of the problems they have had
to face. Buft our teachers have met
these problems bravely and with
.the determination to make the
best of an extremely difficult situ-

Eggs A Dollar A Dozen?
Lagging Chick Sales Point To Shortage of
Eggs and Poultry By Fall As Expected
Surpluses Fail To Develop
How much money could you make next fall if eggs were selling for a dollar
a dozen? It could happen. In fact, in New York last week, the President of
the Butter and Egg Merchants' Association said it may happen.
IT MAY HAPPEN! WHY?
Because every sign today points to a shortage of eggs and poultry next fall.
Two months ago-even 30 days ago-nobody would have believed such a
prediction. Folks were talking of an egg surplus. The Government said it
would support the price of eggs. But what has happened -?
THERE IS NO SURPLUS. Eggs are disappearing as fast as they are being
laid. And far too few baby chicks are being started to meet the demand for
poultry and eggs next fall.
Poultry experts don't need a crystal ball to predict this coming shortage and
high egg and poultry prices. They just look at these cold facts of the U. S.
Department of Agriculture, which tell the story:
THESE FACTS POINT TO HIGH EGG AND POULTRY PRICES
1. AT THE SEASON WHEN EGGS WOULD NORMALLY BE MOVING
INTO STORAGE IN GREAT VOLUME, STOCKS OF SHELL EGGS
In February this reduction amounted to 70,000 cases. On March 1 there
was only about half an egg in storage for every American. A year ago
there was one and a half million cases-ABOUT 7 TIMES AS MANY.
2. FROZEN EGGS IN STORAGE DECREASED BY 7 MILLION POUNDS
IN FEBRUARY as compared to an increase of 6 million pounds in Feb-
ruary a year ago.
3. EGG PRODUCTION IN FEBRUARY WAS 4 PER CENT BELOW A
YEAR AGO DUE TO 6 PER CENT FEWER LAYERS.
4. AMERICANS ARE EATING EGGS AT A RECORD RATE because of
high purchasing power and high meat prices.
5. THERE WERE 55 MILLION FEWER CHICKENS ON FARMS JAN-
UARY. 1 than there were a year ago.
6. VIRTUALLY ALL SIGNS POINT TO AN EXCELLENT GRAIN PRO-
DUCING SEASON IN 1947 which normally means lower feed prices. A
record wheat crop and another 3 billion bushel corn crop are forecast.
IT'S A GOOD YEAR TO START CHICKS
Yes, eggs may sell for a dollar a dozen next fall, but you'll have to start chicks
this spring-to cash in on this golden opportunity.
Our advice is to buy good chicks and start them right. Feed them Purinai
Chick Startena to get them off to a flying start. It's America's Favorite
Chick Starter for LIFE AND GROWTH and this year it's the BEST Purina
EVER made. We have a good supply in stock. Come in and see us for chicks
and all your chick raising needs.

Mayor Soule Provides
Chicks For 4-H Project
Mayor Horace Soule is greatly
interested in girls' 4-H Club work
in Gulf county and, also in good
poultry (naturally being in the
feed business), so he is. doing
something about it.
Mrs. Wilma R. Revell, county
home demonstration agent, has
been promoting poultry projects
among the Gulf county 4-H girls
fo.r some time. andl she recently
found a very strong supporter in
this work in Mayor Soule, who noi
only agreed with Mrs. Revell that
it would be we'll for the girls to
carry more poultry projects, but
also offered 250 baby chicks, to
girls who were interested in start-
ing poultry projects. So the names'
olf all senior 4-H girls were placed
in a box and each had the, oppor-
tunity to draw, the ten lucky ones
getting 25 chicks apiece.
The lucky girls have received
their chickens and are now raising
them, obtaining pointers and sug-
gestions' on poultry raising from
Horace and Mrs. R'evell. They
will keep recordil of feeding, gains,
and other phases of their projects
and report 'on them at the end or

Our Country "' Right or Wrong
LOOK GIFT LOANS IN THE MOUTH
Of course we're only a little frog in a little
puddle putting out a little newspaper, but from
where we sit it begins to look that with all
these gift loans being made by the U. S., if
we don't watch our step we're going to be
suckers again and be angled into the position
of paying reparations for World War II just
as we did for World War I.
We made loans after World War I, just as
wve are doing now, and the only country that
reaid its loan was Finland. The rest of 'em
became quite indignant when asked' when they
were going to pay up.
Practically every European country today is
reviling America openly, and yet all have their
hands out for a loan. What they need is a kick
in .the pants. They should be told that the only
way they can be rehabilitated is to return to
productive work, which will give them buying
power. As long as they believe they can get a
handout from America they will just sit:
around living in a dream-world-iand. put off
facing realities as long as they can.
The Jacksonville Times-Union pulled a good
,one Sunday. In listing the senate and house
members for the 1947 state legislature it
stated. "District 3-E. Bert Riddle, Geneva,
Ala." Of course we know that Alabama would
like to incorporate, part of Florida inside her
boundaries, but we hardly think she is entitled
zat the present time to have a seat in the senate.
Women are called the weaker sex, but how
about a man who'll write love letters ?

sorta like the planned life of a
turkey farm-the turkey ain't got
no choice of a hatchetnlan, neither
-has the patient any choice of a
mnedic under the panel system.
I;ve known Doe Bartee for years
and more recently Doc Norton. Be-
tween the two of 'em they've look-
ed after the family and have always
showed up with their little black
-bags at every beck and call to do
something' about our ills.

they've gotta limit the number orf
"free" panel patients a doctor kin

A short while back, the house and senate
.of the state of Indiana adopted one of the
most remarkable resolutions ever proposed
before a legislative body, and one which might
well be .followed by Florida and the rest of
the states. It was a dramatic reaffirment of
those principles of local independence and lo-
cal responsibility that have been so largely
forgotten under a philosophy which would
have the federal government do everything-
and pay for everything.
Here, in part, is what the resolution said:
"Indiana needs no guardian and intends to
have none. We Hoosiers-like the people of
our sister states-were fooled for quite a spell
with the magician's trick that a dollar taxed
out of our pockets and sent to Washington
will be bigger when it comes back to us.
"We have taken a good look at said dollar.
"We find that it lost weight in its journey
to Washington and back. The political broker-
age of the bureaucrats has been deducted. We
have decided that there is no such thing as
federal aid. We know that there is no wealth
to tax that is not already within the boun-
daries of the forty-eight states.
"So we propose henceforward to tax our-
selves and take care of ourselves. We are fed
Sup with subsidies, doles and paternalism. We
are no one's stepchild. We have grown up. We
serve notice that we will resist Washington,
D. C., adopting us."
H-ere is something we would like to see the
present session of the Florida legislature take
up. It is the final argument against having the
federal bureauracy construct 6ur public build-
ings, pay our old-age pensions; lend us money,
and do all the rest of the things it has, Deeni
doing. Every nickel that is spent must come
out of our pockets-and added to it must be
the immense costs of political administration
: ',The Indiana legislature h ,- simply restated,
in.very plain and blunt words, the doctrine on
which this nation was built. And it is the only
doctrine that can keep this nation strong and
free in the years to come.
We suppose that if all the fish hooks in the
world were placed end to end,, there would
still be more than enough" lyin' to take care
of them all.
An hour of Florida sunshine is an hour of
gold-sixty, shining seconds to cherish and
to go onto panels of medics, they one I'd want. ..... Them guys
