Presidency of

Florida Senate

Red Hot Issue


Probably Be Decided At Meeting To
Be Held August 20 At
Fort Walton

Presidency of the Florida state
senate in 1951 has become a hot is-
sue and will likely be decided with-
in the next month or so, probably
at a meeting of members scheduled
to be held August 20 in Fort Wal-
ton.
Senate members attending the re-
cent house caucus at Tampa began
active campaigning and the two
chief con-tenders at this time are
Senator Wallace E. Sturgis of
Ocala and Senator Raymond Shel-
don of Tamnpai
Sheldon, a veteran member who
has served three terms in the
house, was speaker pro tern in 1941,
and, elected twice to the senate,
was .prominently discussed for the
1951 presidency during the last ses-
sion. He was a member of a group
that selected Senator Newman
Brackin of Crestview for Ihe 1949
presidency.
His opponent in the 19,51 race,
Sturgis. twice elected to the senate
and a supporter oif Senator Harry
E. King of Winter Haven, who
ran against Brackin at that time,
was actively campaigning at the
am'pt: c ucus. .. -
Others being mentioned are Sen-
" ator Turner Davis of Madison, Sen-
ator James A. -Franklin of Fort
Myers and Senator John Mathews
of Jacksonville.
Ten votes will pledge the presi-
dency. While there are 38 members
of the senate, it is only those com-
ing from odd nunilbered districts,
the new members, who will vote. It
was the even numibeer members who
selected Brackin. This cuts the
field to 19 in which pledges will
carry control.

Resolution By Rep. Smathers Would
Abolish Conventions for Naming6
President and Vire-President

Presidents of the United States
will be chosen in a more simn:ple,
straightforward way if Representa-
tive George Sinathers has his way.
The Florida Democrat has intro-
duced a resolution in congress pro-
posing a constitutional amendment
abolishing nominations in conven-
tions for president and vice-presi-
dent and providing for a general
primary within each party to choose
nominees.
The resolution proposes that each
party in each state would have an

Plans are being completed for
Gulf county-'s participation in the
state-wide mass X-ray survey now
underway, and two X-ray units op-
erated by the state health depart-
ment will visit the county August
19, 20, 21 and 23.
The mobile unit will spend one
day in Wewahitchka and then move
to this city, to be used at the paper
mill and Kenney's mill. The second
unit will -be installed at the Florida
Power Corporation office.
The survey is 'being sponsored
jointly by the county health ire-

add-ed up to determine the nominees.
"For example," said Sma.thers,
"the state of Florida has eight elec-
toral votes. If in a Democratic pri-

as a Democratic nominee for presi-

Urges Immunization For
Children Entering School

Children who will enter school
for the first time this fall and who
haven't received their immuniza-
tions against communicable dis-
eases should do so within the next
few week.says Dr. R. F. Sondag of
the Florida State Board of Health.
He points out that although most
county health departments. have al-
ready made such, service available
through their pre-school clinics,
many children probably have not
received this protection.
He advisess parents of those chil-
dren who have not received small-
pox, tetanus, typhoid diphtheria and
whooping cough im.munization-s, to
take them either to their family
physicians or to their local health
departimlents.


Morning Show At Port On
'Best Years of Our Lives'

Manager Norris McCollum of the
Port Theater announces that he has
scheduled a special morning show
for 10:30 next Tuesday morning on
the academy award-winning picture
"Best Years of Our Li-ves," now be-
ing shown for the first times at
regular admission prices.
In scheduling the special morning
show, Manager McCollum expressed
the belief that a number of people,
especially shift workers, may prefer
to attend at this time instead of
the afternoon or evening shows be-
cause of the unusual length of the
picture.
Other shows, in addition to the
special morning show. are sched-
uled for 3:00, 6:10 and 9:20 p. m.
both Monday and Tuesday.

Warren Thanks

Voters In Talk

Here Monday

Democratic Nominee for Governor
Says Next Four Years Will Be
Period of Progress In State

Fuller Warren, Democratic nomi-
nee for governor of Florida, thanked
the people of Port St. Joe-Miond.a.y,
afternoon for their splendid sup-
port in- the recent primaries. He
had made a similar talk a short
time previously at Wewahitchka.
Speaking in front o-f the postof-
fice, Warren said the people of Gulf
county had supported him with loy-
alty and perseverance and that he'
appreciated that fact from the bot-
tom of his heart.
Florida's next governor said that
his "thank you" tour has convinced
him that "a great spirit or unnty
and harmony is going to prevail
during the next four years, and it
undoubtedly will result in a period
of great progress and prosperity for
all of our state.
"The people are becoming more
and more aware of their respionsl-
bilities as citizens," he pointed out.
"They are not content to cast their
votes and then: forget the problems
olf government for another four
years. They are over the feverish
campaign period when they talked
about 'who will win?'; nt ow they
are demanding te know 'what will
the winner do?'
"They are asking me that ques-
tion:, and they are asking the
members of their legislative dele-
gations. I believe all of us are
about ready now to give the people
a joint answer and show them that
we are in close accord in determin-
ing what must be done to insure
our state's steady, substantial pro-
gress."
Warren, apologizing for cutting
his talk short due to a throat irrita-
tion, referred briefly to several spe-
cilfic planks in his platform to point
out that he campaigned for election
as an "all-Florida candidate' and
that his proposals cover the major
needs of all sections of the state.
Warren concluded his state-wide
tour Monday afternoon -with talks
in Apalachicola and Crawfordville.


State Hospital Flooded
With Senile Patients,

The Florida State Hospital at
Chattahoochee is being flooded with
senile patients,, according to Super-
intendent .1. H. Therrell. He said
the lengthened life span made pos-
sible iby medical advances has re-
sulted in. numerous persons losing
Iheir mental ability simply because
of old age.
The senile patients, he states, re-
quire 24-hour care because they are
unable to do anything for them-
selves. "not even- take a drink of
water."' This means additional staff
workers are needederT an the care
available for dangerously insane
persons is correspondingly reduced.
Therrell said the elderly patients
gain admittance through county
judties who "arrange to get a doctor
to say they're psychotic, and in they
come." The. hospital is intended to
care on-ly for insane persons.
No reinedfy his bepn -uggested

Our Country Right or Wrong


HOW IS THE STATE OF THE UNION?
Representative George Smathers of Florida
has introduced a resolution in the house pro-
posing a constitutional amendment abolishing
nominations in conventions for president and
vice-president and providing for a general pri-
mary within each party to choose nominees,
and at the general election the people woulc
vote for a president directly.
The editor of The Star is. highly in favor of
such a constitutional amendment as Represen-
tative Smathers proposes, but.it won't stand a'
ghost of a chance of passing congress, since it
would do away with the so-called political
bosses who liked to be referred to as "presi-
dent-makers." And, too, it would do away
with those juicy political plums which the
bosses are able to hand out if their man is
elected.
The recent national conventions show us full
well that a handful of politicians say who is to
be nominated and who is not. The conventions
are cut and dried in advance, "in the bag" we
might say, and all the delegates do is generate
a lot of enthusiasm that doesn't mean a thing.
'Should Smathers' bill become law, we would
have yet another thing to contend with, and
that is the fact that too many of our citizens
are not interested enough in their government
to cast their votes, many of them contending
that all office-seekers are either crooks or po-
tential enemies of the people and the govern-
ment. Also, this stigma attached to all politics
by the general public has done a great deal to-
ward keeping some of our outstanding citizens
out of public service.
This general...apathy of the citizens of our
country in regard to voting and their distrust
of politicians is well brought out in the movie,
"State of the Union," which played a couple:
of weeks ago at the Port Theater. This film
brought out the fact that many honest officials


have their hands tied due to the complacency
of so many potential voters in our country. It
also brought out the fact that all of us are led
by minorities because of lack of interest. Such
trends are extremely dangerous in a govern-
ment that is intended to be governed by the
people, for rights are sometimes like muscles
-they are often lost through lack of exercise.

WARREN THANKS SUPPORTERS
Fuller Warren, Florida's next governor, who
spoke in Port St. Joe Monday afternoon on
his "thank you" tour of the state during which
he spoke in every county to express his appre-
ciation for. the support he received in the two
primaries, undoubtedly is setting a precedent
that probably will be followed by future guber-
natorial nominees.
In addition to expressing his thanks to the
voters, he is conferring with other legislators
and political bigwigs during his tour, thus dis-
covering problems that will confront him when
he plunks his fanny down in the chair now be-
ing kept warm by Governor Holland, and he is
also establishing good relations with legisla-
tive delegations upon whom he will call for
support in putting over the program he has
outlined.

ONE-MAN BALL OF FIRE
The Southern states were strongly booed at
the convention and the powerful votes of New
York, Pennsylvania, California, etc., steam-
rolled President Truman's nomination. Coupled
with this was the largest amount of hash sling-
ing we have ever heard over the radio. Accord-
ing to the speakers who seconded President
Truman's nornknation, he's a one-man ball of
fire who apparently has done everything
.singlehanded from ERP to veterans' rights.
George Marshall, Byrd, Lovett, Taft, Martin,
Vandenberg aad the rest are mere office boys

The Deep South got the keynoter and Texas
got the permanent chairman. They have to get
down to the Bourbon country to' find tiose
rich, mellow voices that have been aged in the
Democracy of Jackson and bottled in bond for
u e every four years. They let the boys from
Lhe land of cotton do the revival preaching and
lead the singing, but the city slickers from
New York, Chicago and points east and north
take up the collection. Kingsville (Texas)

Little Tail History
The word "pencil" originally
meant a small, fine-pointed brush
used in painting. The finer camel's
hair and sable brushes used by
artists still are called "pencils,"
and the word is derived from a
Latin term meaning "little tail."

STATE WILL OBSERVE
JAP SURRENDER DATE
Governor Caldwell Monday called
on Floridians to observe September
2 in commemoration of the Jap-
anese surrender three years ago.
He urged 30 seconds o'f silence
at 8:.59 a. m. "as, a forceful re-
minder o'f the terrific price paid for

Removing Textile Stains
Fats and oil stains generally come
out in hot soapsuds; however, if
they seem bad, sponge first with
some solvent like carbon tetrachlo-
ride. This also applies to most lip-
sticks. To remove fruit juice, coffee
and tea stains, stretch the cloth over
a pan and pour boiling water
through the spot from a height; then
wash in hot soapsuds. \
