Solons Vote Selves Out of
Campaigning for Office
Governor Warren last week put
his signature on a bill last week
which prevents coercion of public
-employes and officials by office-
holders and candidates. The act
provides, among other,-thtogs, that-
-no elected officer can take part in
:any political campaign."
And were faces red in the senate
,and house, fori the lawmakers Sat-
iirday awoke to the fact that the
law would prevent them and other
-officials from running for re-elec-
tion or for any other public office.
Rep. Dick Simpson of Jefferspn,
who sponsored the bill for the ad-
ministration, sheepishly asked the
house to pass the measure again
with an amendment which would
put them back into politics. The
amended bill, which was passed in
record-breaking time, allows office-
holders to participate in their own
- campaigns for re-election or for
,election to other offices. It was
also repassed by the senate as

outstanding activities in the work
of the church, and Port St. Joe will
be blessed by having them here,"

The young people of the Metho-
dist Church urge the youth of other
churches to join with them in this
revival, and the pastor and young
people request all members of the

by the house 68 to 9 and sent to

secured permission to take up the
measure out of its regular order.
He stated that bills already have
been enacted authorizing construc-
tion of sanatoria at Lantana, Drew
Field and Marianna, "but unless we
provide the money, those bills have
the same effect as writing a check

anxiously to this legislature to give
them relief." Funds had been ap-

To Special Session
As Time Runs Out
Both Houses Working Madly
On Revenue and Appro-
The 1949 legislature took decisive
stands on running livestock off the
highways, stopping the shipment of
green citrus fruit, making flood
control a state-wide program, con-
tinuing the common school pro-
gram unchecked, and expanding of
state institutions, but it dawdled
so much in the opening days of the
session that as we went to press
yesterday both houses were work-,
ing madly on appropriation and
revenue measures, with the spectre
of a special session staring them
in the face as time runs out, since
the major financing of the state
had not yet been solved.
Both the house and senate have
passed appropriation bills, but they
vary so greatly that neither body
will accept the others' measure,
and so, after each house formally
refuses to accept the bill of the
other chamber, a conference coinm-
mittee will be named to effect a

St. Joe Deserted As
Fishing Season Opens
Crowds From Out-of-State Flock To

Hold On Cellar Position

retain their firm hold on the cellar
position in the Gulf Coast League
by dropping two games to the Pan-
ama City Seahawks, the Sunday
tilt by a sn huat- .n'd the Wed-
nesday game by 7 to 5.
Fans and players alike were of
the opinion that St. Joe should have
won the Wednesday game, played
here, but due to a number of er-
rors in. judgment. and errors on the
field the Seahawks. took the game
with two, runs in the ninth. Up to
the seventh Panama led 5-2, but in
that inning the Saints tied the
score and, in reality should have
taken the lead had it not been for
an error in judgment.

ly agreed to by all factions of the
legislature, will become law with
Governor Warren's signature. It
carries out his campaign promise
to the letter and no more.
The bill as finally agreed to by
senate and house conference com-
mittees makes it- illegal for live-
stock to be at large on the public
roads of Florida. It allows sheriffs
and state highway patrolmen to im-
pound wandering cows, hogs, mules,
horses and other livestock. The
house rejected efforts of the state-
wide no-fence group to prohibit
livestock from running at large
anyplace. The senate had proposed
that everything be put under fence
and thus protect individual prop-
erty rights. The cattlemen rebelled
against this, and in the end the
senate gave in.
The cattle fencing law will take
effect July 1, 1950, which is a good
nine months later than Governor
Warren had hoped it might begin
A final, drive by .administration
forces pushed through the house
the administration citrus bill to
raise maturity standards and bring
canners under state regulation.' The
only change in the bill as it was
originally prepared is to allow
truckers to haul fruit direct from
the grove to the consumer with
only a maturity inspection test. Un-
der the old law, such fruit also had
to go through a packing house and
be graded and packed in containers.
Canners and makers of concen-
trate, a growing new industry, re-
belled against being required, to
label their products by grade. Ihow-
ever, the house insisted and the
senate agreed that grade labeling
would remain in the bill. "
Other provisions of this act are
expected to make it more difficult
to ship green fruit out of the state
to other markets.
Fate of the prAupouad .m,?,lical
and dental and nur-inLg school for
Florida has been decided. In spite
of efforts of the big citlit. to attract
this new school to one of them, the
University of Florida crowd in ;the
legislature finally steered it safely
to Gainesville. No definite appro-
priation has been made for con-
struction of buildings or establish-
ment of 'a staff, but that is expected
The legislature turned down at-
tractive bids from Miami, Jackson-
ville and Tampa, each of whom of-
fered a large hospital, the ground
to build the buildings and the cash
with which to start them. Gaines-
ville has none of these, but got the
nod from the legislature. I

years hence when we have a new
governor-unless Gene hits the po-
litical jackpot again.

Our Country Right or Wrong
A ROSE BY-ANY OTHER NAME--
One of the main reasons we voted for Fuller
Warren for governor was because during his
campaign he shouted loudly, long and vocifer-
ously that he would veto a sales tax if one was
passed by the legislature.
Now he gives his approval to a suggested tax-
raising measure which he terms a "transaction
tax" and which he states will spread the tax bur-
den equitably upon the rich and poor alike.
Call it a transaction tax if you will, to us it
still smells to high heaven of "sales tax" and is
a vicious form of taxation that strikes at the poor
man, imposing. a hardship upon him that in-
creases his burden in spite of the so-called "ex-
emptions" contained in the tax bill.
The man with an income of $1000 a year
spends practically all of it in making retail pur-
chases. The man with an income of say $100,000
a year may spend $10,000 of it in making pur-
chases upon which he pays a tax. The little man
pays the proposed three per cent upon most of
what he has coming in, while the big fellow, bet-
', ter ableto,;-pay it, pa\s oixless thaqn one-teptth of,
his income. The man less able: to pay ill pab
ing ten to onie a- compared to the man who is
more able to pay.
Therefore, this "transaction tax" is in reality a
a tax on life-an excise tax imposed on the poor
man for the right to live and eke out a livelihood.
Jt is ',the most burdensome and crippling of all
--forms of taxatiori for the poor man, and in the in-
:-forms of taxation for the podr man.
Unless the clock 'is stopped, today is the last
day of this session of the legislature, and if this
measure has not already been passed as today's
issue of The Star comes out, we urge our legis-
lators, in the interest of the welfare of the small
wage earners of Florida, not to pass this measure,
and should it be passed by today, we urge Gov-
ernor Warren to keep his promise to the people
of Florida and veto it.
All history has proved that local governments,
even when they are extravagant, are less waste-
ful than the federal government. The federal
government now has so many employes that it
has grown cumbersome. It takes an army just
to keep them paid. So wound up in red tape is
the federal bureaucracy that it spends billions of
.dollars just checking up on itself. As a result,
when Florida pays money into the federal treas-
ury for its own use, that money dwindles to only
a fraction of itself by the time it comes back to
It is right and proper that those of us who en.
joy good health should lend a helping hand to
the sick and disabled, but we should be able to
work out soaie plan that will see at least half
what we contribute go to those really in need in-,
stead of to. ablebodied government o\-is i :--ii .
Such a plan could be. worked out with our pres-
ent structure of relief personnel. But that isn't
the main idea at Washington. What they are'
looking for is a healthy, self-perpetuating politi-
cal organization financed by compulsory contri-
butions for all the real workers.-Apollo (Pa.)
Keep smiling-nothing is as bad as it.seems:.
The action of the secretary of defense in for-
bidding the navy to proceed with the construc-
tion of a very large aircraft carrier has stirred up
many repercussions and will continue to do so.
Some think, for instance, that the secretary
stretched his proper authority to the breaking
point when, in effect, he vetoed a project which
congress had approved when it passed the navy's
In any event, the matter goes beyond the
question of whether the country is to have this
particular carrier or not. The opponents of the
ship were mainly air force partisans who argue
that if another war comes we will end it in 30
days or so with A-bombs delivered, by land-based
aircraft. Before World War II started we were
told we could lick Japan in 30 days-we know
now the error of that statement. We would all
like to.see a war won at the smallest cost in lives
and money.'However, if we place all our eggs in
the air force basket, what. will happen to us if
the theory doesn't work and the bottom of the
'basket falls out? The terrible risks inherent in a
one-weapon defense plan should be apparent
Too, how can we have a first-class defense
organization unless every service is permitted to
develop the weapons and the techniques which
their experience and best judgment deem essen-
tial? -The big carrier was simply a- logical step
forward in ship' development-a vessel which
would be more nearly unsinkable and which
would provide a better platform for planes, guns
or guided missiles. In these days, a navy which
is forbidden to advance its own aviation would
be a frail reed to lean upon in time of need.
The air force is pushing construction of the
new B-36 planes, and it could be that the investi-
gation being asked of the purchase of such a
large number of this particular type plane may
have been instigated by the navy in retaliation
for the sabotaging of construction of their big
carrier. But however that may be, to blindly
place our faith in air force claims which have
Soot been proven could be the road to disaster.
The over-all printing ;and binding cost for the
entire government in fiscal 1948 was $45,000,000,.
n4o. including the cost of. distribution, research,
editing, typing and other details in preparing the
copy for publication. A large portion of this
money went for government publications on "Ir-
rigation In Australia," "Ancient Water Codes,"
"Afghanistan's Reclamation Program," "How To
Rid Buildings of Bats," 'The, Care of Parrots,"
"How To Cook Muskrat Meat," "Japanese Fish-
ing Terms," "How To Prepare Sable-fish Hash,"
and hundreds of more similar-,publications that
serve only the purpose of keeping hundreds of
unnecessary researchers on the government pay-
roll. Our congressmen blat of economy. What's
needed is to scrap the entire federal government
layout and start again from scratch.
President Truman still insists on increased in-
come' taxes, even though the people are already
carrying an intolerable tax burden. If he wants
more money for what he considers essentials,
he could very easily find the essential money by
following the Hoover committee recommenda-
tions and by cutting out numerous unnecessary
bureaus. Four or five 'billion dollars could be
easily saved in this way and still not impair the
efficiency of the government. Of course, firing
unnecessary bureaucrats would decrease the
number of bureaucratic votes, but the taxpayers
would get the tax relief so badly needed.-The
Greenbush (Minn.) Tribune.
A Washington di.pathi says that the govern-
ment is "just holding its own" as tax rebates
come close to equaling tax revenue. Well, turn
. about is fair play. Now the government knows
how the taxpayer feels.-Fort Lauderdale News.
A scientist states that he has developed a ma-
chine that can see through a man. Most married
women will wonder why he bothered.

lilinois and Pennsylvania.
