Charles Albert Paul, 26, of Ken-

bridge at White City into the intra-

bruises and shock.
According to Patrolman Olin'Da-

Gray told him that they saw the
bridge was open but that they were
traveling between 50 and' 60 miles

due to the fact that the brakes on
the car were in poor repair.
'Both men, good swimmers, matt
aged to escape from the car which
was submerged in 18 feet olf water,
and while Gray managed to swim
to a piling where he clung until
rescued, "Paul swam a few strokes
and then went under. His body was
recovered with gi'appling hooks
about an hour later 'by Frank Har-
per and James Seatey who live near
the bridge. An examination of the
drowned man showed a severe
bruise on the forehead, apparently

FROM FIREMAN TO
Orphaned early in his childhood,
VN7. May Walker, deprived' of the
assistance and advice of a father,
worked as a gum-dipper, slab-toter,
plow hand, truck driver and fire-
man. H,.re in the sloughs, ham- '
mooks, fields, highways, and towns
o.f Florida he encountered all of the
hardships and, obstacles that con-'
fronted a youth of his age. It was
here he rece-ived his first inspira-
tion of thought and sentiment-it
was here he knelt before nature's
rugged majesty and, received the
royal stroke, of a noble manhood
that inspired him to study law by
night. It was here he acquired the
strength of mind and character thai
enabled him to pass the bar exami-
nation with one of the highest
grades of his class. ,
Here in the midst of Florida he
became a successful lawyer and
won the. confidence of his, people
who twice elected him. County
Judge. The people of his district
then twice elected him Circuit
Judge, at which post he has served
with distinction for eight years.
His varied, experience in lif.. has
given him a vast knowledge of the
laws of nature, which has enabled
him to temper justice with mercy
wherever extenuating circumstances
would, justify. An unsurpassed
sense of justice has enabled him to
settle with fairness the (lieftrence-
of his fellowmen who came berfor-
him. This has made him an out-
standing jurist of this State and all
that know him now recommend him
to all the people of Florida. When
Judge W. May Walker is elected
SupremeCourt Judge of Florida the
people by their vote will have
chosen one more member for our.
court of last resort who under-
stands the hardships anid trials of
all the, people; a Judge who can:
synmathize with the Mothers., Fa-!
thers, Sons and Daughters of Flor-[
A vote for May Walker in our'
opinion 'will be a vote to establish
and: perpetuate justice In our Court
of Final Jurisdiction.

Our Country Right or Wrong
The editor of The Star, who for the past
couple of years has been rather closely c/pn-
fined to the vicinity of Port St. Joe due to the
fact that he had a car that couldn't be trusted
to make a trip over 50 miles without falling
apart, now that he has a new car has been
ranging rather widely on Sundays to look over
the country, note new developments, and get
some fresh air.
One thing in particular has come to our at-
tention. We have noted that 'many properties
having small lakes or being traversed by
streams, where we were wont to drive in to
wet our hook upon occasion, have been posted
with "No trespassing" signs telling would-be
fishermen and hunters what the law will do to
them if they trespass.
Reason for this, we find, is not that owners
of the land want to keep the nimrods and the
Izaak Waltons off their property, but because
careless hunters and fishermen in the past,
have caused fires that .have razed stands of
timber and destroyed pasture lands,
We can't blame the owners in wanting to
protect their property, but it sure makes it
tough on the fishermen and the hunters, but
then, too, we must consider that it's a great
deal tougher on the people whose property is
ravaged by fire.
We heard a local man say that his wife is a
thing of beauty and a jawer forever. We won't
mention his name, since he's a subscriber to

FERTILIZING GRASS IS GOOD IDEA
Not many years ago, applying fertilizer to
pasture land in Gulf county was unheard of.
While farmers of the county applied fertilizer
to all other crops, they never deemed it neces-
sary to help the grass along, too. The grass
was there, it grew as best it could, and the
cows got as much feed as they could in graz-
ing it. And sometimes the amount of feed was
It's different today, however, since Cubice
Laird, our county agent, and Jake White, for-
mer count\ agent now xwvorking with the state
agricultural experiment station, have talked
their fool heads off and actually shown with
experimental plantings that the grass crop
needs fertilizer just like any other crop and
that it will produce more meat and milk per
acre if it is fertilized properly and adequately.
Their labors have not been in vain, for cattle-
men and farmers of the county now realize
that it is practical and very much worthwhile
to fertilize their pastures. ,
Results obtained from experimental plant-
ings have given our cattlemen and farmers a
definite program to follow in improving pas-
tures and increasing production of the final
products-meat and milk, and because so much
promise is indicated in the work to date,
many more land owners are expected *-) join
in the program.
Significant developments in this improve-
ment in pastures of Gulf county) include the
findings as to soil needs, the introduction of
improved grasses and clovers, and the grazing
tests on different soil types, different grasses,
and on fertilized and unfertilized pastures.
Through financial help from the federal agri-
cultural cosservatios program and front pri-
vate capital, farmers and cattlemen of the
county have used the findings of the research
men in applying fertilizer to several hundred
acres of pastures during the past few years.
Most of them are sold on the idea that satis-
factory production of meat and milk depend
primarily on good pastures, and they aie Im-
proving their grazing lands as fast as they can
by applying fertilizer and planting improved
Good grass is necessary for success in pro-
ducing meat and milk, but also necessary is a
good strain of cattle, and these two young men,
Laird and White, are also weaning our cattle-
men and farmers over to thoroughbred stock.
and as a consequence prospects for continued
progress with grass and cattle in Gulf county
