According to the report, wells in
North Florida-now underway are
the one in St. Vincent ~'ound, in
Franklin county, now at a depth of
4,750 -feet, and another In Holmes

Sow Fall Crop of Spring
Vegetables this Summer
Green onions ai

-. take twice as long as the early ones
.to.' t reach the harvest.
Crops sown in the surtmer must
mature before freezing; and there-
fore the faster they grow, the long-
er you will be able to harvest
them in the fall. Growth is always
slower in the summer and fall than
in the spring. First hot, dry, weath-
er, then the shortening daylight
tends to slow down growth. Since
A catalogue maturity dates are based
upon spring sowing, you must
expect summer sowings to take
from a quarter to a third more
Therefore choose the earliest va-
rieties, the fastest growing ones,
for late sowing. And take special
precautions in sowing them. The
time to sow is directly related to
the maturity dates. With slow grow-
ing crops, such as Chinese cabbage,
nd young radishes which are best grown for fall har-
September as in vest, it is necessary to allow ai
least three months to maturity.
Every gardener grows early vege-
tables in the spring; but to start
these same varieties in midsummer
and enjoy their delicious freshness
in the fall entitles you to be con-
sidered an amateur of exceptional
Yet to do this requires no difficult
physical feats, merely a few men-
tal adjustments. Those who fail,
can blame it in poor staff work.
The first mistake likely to be made,
is to sow late varieties of vegeta-
bles, late in the season.
This is wrong, because the vari-
eties which seed catalogues de-
scribe as late, give a late harvest.
If your catalogue gives the days to
maturity, or table condition, you
will note that the "late" ones take
longest to mature. Instead of be-
ing sown late, they should usually
be. sown with the first crops, or
shortly thereafter; but they may
Before planning your summer
sowing schedule, check up local
weather records to learn the aver-
age date of the first killing frost in
the fall. Your late crops should be
sown early enough to allow two ol

With radishes, lettuce and an3
other vegetables that dislike hoi

obtained by sowing after ,the pealh
temperatures have passed. Usual,
ly in August the turn of the season
comes, after which there are more
frequent rains, and cooler nights,
while the days grow noticeably
shorter. Cool weather crops sowr
when this turn comes will usually

the extreme heat; but the longer

Our Country P' Right or Wrong
YOU CAN'T EAT CURRENCY
As everyone knows, coal is one of the vital
raw materials which keep the American. pro-
duction machine running. The coal strikes
were directly responsible for drastically re-
duced output of a long list of commodities. If
they had been prolonged, the eventual result
would have been a collapse of steel production,
electric power production, and transportation.
The entire nation would have been subjected
to an artificially-induced depression, accom-
panied by widespread'unemployment.
High coal production is likewise important
to the furtherance' of this country's present
foreign policy. One phase of that policyis fi-
nancial and material aid to stricken nations,
in an attempt to keep them out of the expand-
ing Communist sphere of influence. And to
many nations, imports of American coal are
almost as vital as imports of Arerican food.
Congress may appropriate hundreds of mil-
lions of doftars for foreign aid-but that will
achieve ,nothing unless those dollars can hbe
converted into the. commodities cold and hun-
gry peoples must have. You can't eat currency
-nor can yolise it for. fuel.
'We don't pretend to know why about 88
per cent of human beings are right-handed.
It's just one of those phenomenas that make
the human race both peculiar and interesting.
But there's no question that left-handers have
been up against obstacles. They've never had
a square' deal, and in a democracy a man Is
entitled to his idiosyncrasies if they don't un-
duly conflict with the rights of his peers.
Banks are conservative but they do tender
a needed service, and it'sparticularly hearten-.
ing to read that a St. Louis bank sees the total
picture and has issued some left-handed check
books. This is more than good business and
more than a simple service. It is having whole-
some repercussions throughout the left-handed
world To lonno- a callnous ma ionrtv has adrloned
the attitude that left-handers should adapt
themselves't6 a right-handed civilization. Now
WHY TAXES MUST BE HIGH
Because of the wholesome disbelief in the
idea that there are people in the world who
will pass up a chance to swell their bank ac-
counts, these editorial columns are frequently
given to quoting the words of an old cynic
woo once said: "There are better things in
life than money, but it takes money to get
Another favorite is the expression of a chap
who said that "You can't get poor taking."
It was with the thought, therefore, that an
exception had been found that proved the rule
the other day when the case was cited of E.
B. Tilton, the Milwaukee business man whu
refused $6000 of his salary, preferring to turn
down that amount of his annual earnings than
to pay the income tax which its acceptance
But now comes the story of Frank R. Nich-
ols, president of the Nichols Wire and Steel
Company, who has returned to the govern-
ment a check for $,020 which was intended
to subsidize his, firm's manufacture of nails.
'The reasons given by Mr. Nichols for his
refusal of the RFC grant *are almost a classic
in these days of the economic paradox that
business should sieze every available oppor-
tunity t6 feast on the patrimony of a rich
Uncle Sam. He said that he and other pro-
ducers disliked "the idea of having the govern-
mient subsidize us out of the taxpayers- pocket
to cajole us into doing. what it was proper
for us to do."
- He declared that his firm' "has stood on our
own feet without governmental financial as
distance for 40-odd years, and we don't wan.
to, .nor do we need to lean on Uncle Sam."
Few taxpayers -realize hlow much of their
money is paid out every year by the govern-
ment in subsidies. To cite only two, the mari-
time industry is subsidized to the extent of
millions of dollars annually, and the govern-
ment is pledged to keep the prices of farm
products at about 90 per cent of their parity
Such is the econonihis of why Mr. Tilton,
the Milwaukee businessman, cannot enjoy the
full benefit of his entire annual-salary. There
are many persons who say they ablior'the idea
of subsidies as much as the nail manufacturer,
but there are few, to use a bit of gambler's
slang, "who will put their money where their
mouth is."--Jacksonville Times-Union.
HAROLD THE PROPHET
Former Governor Stassen, the only 'avowco
candidate for president next year, says that
the Democratic ticket will be Truman and
Wallace. Since Mr. Stassen has jumped with
both feet into the marshy field of prophecy,
perhaps we may gingerly stick a toe in. Our
achy bones tell us that if the donkey's stan-
dard bearers in 1948 are Truman and Wallace,
it will either be some' other Truman than
Harry or soine other Wallace than Henry.-

Have you a desire to toss your
hat into the ring in the forthcom-

your name to Kent Watson of Mi-
ami, who is conducting a state-wide
poll on next year's election. He
states that a cross-section of the
-voting populace is being polled
and he will announce his re-sults
about August 1.
.Watson's poll contains the names
of 15 possible candidates, although
more have been mentioned as pos-
sible contenders. Herewith are the
15, with Watson's comments:

and has 'made two previous unsuc-

LeRoy Collins Another Talla-
hassee attorney and staunch sup-
porter of Governor Caldwell in the
past two sessions of the legisla-
ture. He is considered one of the
state's most promising young at-
Colin English-The state super-
intendent of public instruction
probably could be talked into run-
'ning. He.fees tha the new school
bill would make excellent timber
for his platform.
George E. Holt-The Miami cir-
cuit judge has remained, mum on
his plans for the 1948 campaign,
but he is toying with the idea.
J. Edwin Larson-He isn't too
anxious. The state, treasurer likes
his present job and can reasonably

torney's announcement, one way or
thbe other, depends on what Repre-
se.ntative George Smathers does.

sentative. He appears to have lost
the public eye the past year, but is
now accepting public speaking e.n-
gaments in various parts of the
state. Probably a. warm-up for his

he was through with politics. .Old-

ful backing from real estate. inter-

paign slogan is expected to read:
"We don't need any more taxes."
Tom Sebring-The state supreme
court justice frequently has been
mentioned 'for governor. Although
he has been out of the country
for several months, his participa-
tion at the war trials in Germany
has kept him in public print.
Richard H. Simpson-The Monti-
cello representative, was chosen by
the 1945 and 1947 houses as the
most valuable member. He may

bor has threatened to organize
anti-Watson clubs and probably

views appeal to many who are fed

An infestatiofii of white fringe ,
beetles has been found in Holmes
