the state of Florida has enough

Credit for this state of affairs
goes to the legislature, which just
closed a "do-nothing" session. It is-
sued a back-breaking $240,000,000

REMEMBER POOR OLD ) )AD
Next Sunday is Father's Day. Anyhow, that's
what the calendar says, and theoretically father
is entitled to occupy the place of honor in the
family circle on that day.
And, folks, he should be remembered with
gifts that will be his alone. Poor old dad gener-
ally has a controlling interest in lamps in the liv-
ing room, furniture for the dining room, perhaps
only a half interest in a pair of andirons for the
fireplace, and maybe a bit of stock in a washing
machine-but has he anything that lie can truth-
fully say is all his?
Son wears his socks and ties, and mother and
daughter take his shirts and pants to wear fish-
ing-but poor old dad can't borrow a thing from
the rest of the family,
' So let's dco all we can for day next Sunday. He
will feel happy if he's remembered. Dad really
isn't a bad fellow if his family would only get to
know him-but to a great extent, he's to blame if
they don't. --- .- '. ? ..
The other night when we had
that heavy rainstorm, Pervis Howell
was signaling to G. E. McGill, the
-engineer on the A. N. freight train,
-when he dropped his lantern to the
ground. "Cat" Sylvester, passing
:by, tossed it back to him on top of
-a freight car.
In a few minutes McGill came
rushing up to Howell. "Let's see
.you do that again!" he panted.
"Do what?" said Pervis.
"Jump from the ground to the
.top of that boxcar," replied McGill.

NOTHING IN THE PAPER
One of our subscribers, a woman, came into
The Star office Monday with the complaint that
"there's never anything in the paper."
But she forgot that it was only the week be-
fore she asked to have her bridge party kept out
of The Star because there were three people she
had neglected to invite. And a short while pre-
viously she had informed us that the family
didn't want it mentioned when they bought a
new car from Lewis' Garage because they still
owed Dr. Ward for Junior, and two or three
merchants were wanting a settlement.
We carefully reminded her that we had left
the account of her son's careless driving spree
out of the paper because we felt sorry for her
old man, and that we also neglected to mention
the fact that her brother had been haled into
court for imbibing too freely, creating a disturb-
ance and resisting an officer.
But she still was of the opinion we could print
more news. We probably could-but what it we
We knew it! When President Truman used his
famous s. o. b. utterance we stated editorially
that people would figure if the president could
get away with it, they could, too. Last week the
same phrase was directed by Senator Eastland
of Mississippi at C. B. Baldwin, campaign man-
ager for Henry Wallace last fall. during a sub-
committee hearing on legislation to curb com-
muntists. We are still of the opinion that such
utterances should be curbed, for the use of pro-
fanitv by our so-called statesmen undoubtedly
has an influence upon the choice of language
employed elsewhere in the nation.

Marjorie Wright Joins Husband In
Orient After Long Trip
From Lake City
NAGOYA, Japan, 5th Air Force
Headquarters-Captain Edmund A.
Wright, son of Mrs. E. A. Wright
of Lake City,Fla., recently wel-
comed his wife, Mrs. Marjorie P.
Wright, to Nagoya. Mrs. Wright is
the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. C.
Philyaw of Port St. Joe, Fla., and
is a former teacher in the Port St.
Captain Wright is currently as-
signed to Hq. and Hq. Squadron,
5th Air Force. the occupation air
force in Japan and the largest com-
mand under Far East Air Forces.
Wright graduated from the U. S.
Military Academy at West Point
in 1943 with the degree of B. S.
and the aeronautical rating of
pilot. From September 1944 to June
1945, Captain Wright served with
the 5th Air Force in the Southwest
Pacific Theater. He was awarded
the Air Medal, Purple Heart for
wounds received in action, and the
Commendation Ribbon for out-
Mrs. Wright left Lake City in
April -for the Seattle port of em-
barkation and on April 20 sailed
aboard the U. S. Army Transport
General M. M. Patrick. After a
voyage of 18 days, broken by an
18-hour layover in San Francisco,
she arrived on May 8 in Yokohama,
where she was met by her husband.
In reporting her first impression
of Japan, Mrs. Wright said: "Amer-
icans were at the docks and in the
streets; American cars were every-
where; so it was difficult to believe
I was in a foreign country. Later,
I was fascinated by the Japanese in
native dress, and especially in-
trigued by the children and the
amazing way in which they ran
around in their wooden.clogs."
WHITEKAIR TO SEEK SENATE?
DeLand friends of Francis P.
,Whitehair say that his present
plans are to run against U. S. Sen-
ator Claude Pepper in 1950. Eight
years ago, Whitehair was runner-
up to Spessard L. Holland, who de-
feated him in the second primary.
Governor Warren first ran in that
race and ended in third position.
