Br'er Groundhog Fails
To Glimpse Shadow
The editor of The Star went
out last week (Febr'uary 2) to
interview Br'er Groundhog as
he made his yearly prediction,
but owing to lack of space in
last week's issue, the story
was crowded out.
We waited patiently for Mr.
Grpundhog to come out and
were finally rewarded. How-
ever, he merely stuck his nose
out of his burrow, took a quick
look around, thumbed his nose
at us, and retreated without
seeing his shadow.
This means an early spring,
for if the sun is shining strong
enough for Br'er Groundhog
to see his shadow it means at
least six more weeks of win-
However, the way we look
at it, the services of the little
varmint were not needed this
year, since we haven't had
any winter to speak of.

Mr. Manasco said:
"If elected, I promise to remem-

home to honor Miss Betty Otto An-
derson, candidate sent from the
eleventh grade to represent the

Miss Anderson's report was beau-
tifully written, clearly spoken and
vastly illuminating to those who
heard her. She stated that her in-
sight into the workings of the state
government could not have been
gotten from books, no matter how
many she would have read.
"On entering, each girl is as-
signed to a party, either the Fed-
eralist or the Nationalist," stated
Miss Anderson, "and the politicking

during the session," she said. "The
between sessions bulletin, forma-
tion of a committee to submit pro-
posals for an official flag, and the
adoption of a bill for a state flag
for the Girl State of Seminole."
At the conclusion of Miss Ander-
son's talk, a delightful salad sup-
per was served.
Those members of the Auxiliary
and Legion who failed to attend
missed a wonderful talk, according
to those who were present to hear
Miss Anderson tell of her five days'
experience in the legislative halls
of the state of Florida.

Alyssum Violet Queen.
They say sweet alyssum seed is
scarce this year. What a disaster
for gardens it would be if suddenly
no seed were available! But that
could hardly happen with a flower,
which ever since flower gardens be-
gan to be made, in the Mediterra-
nean area, has been an essential
part of every planting.
If flowers could be manufactured,
and an artist were commissioned to
design one, ideal for edging garden
beds and borders, with honey fra-
grance, and small flowers blooming
profusely all season to enhance the
beauty of its neighbors while seldom
drawing attention to itself the
ablest designer could hardly im.
prove upon the sweet alyssum.
Ancient gardeners on Crete, in
Egypt, Greece and Rome, loved it,
But they had only the white kind. In
recent years this has been joined b3
lilac and violet varieties, which have
all the characteristics of the white,
including fragrance.'Alyssum violet
queen is in many ways the best of all
plants where a ribbon or mass ol
dark blue purple is needed in the
garden, to offset brighter hues.
All are alike in ease of culture,
free-flowering qualities and long
season of bloom. When their stems
become old and leggy, if cut back
with .scissors, they quickly grow
young again. Seed may be sown di.
rect in the garden and there is sel-
dom a failure. Even thinning oui
may be neglected, but it is better to
give the plants room to develop
without too much crowding.
Finally, the sweet alyssum is so
hardy that it survives many hard
frosts in the fall. Violet queen, es-
pecially, is likely to be the last flow-
er blooming in your garden. As for
insects and diseases, they seem to
pass the-sweet-alyssum by. What
more could you..- ak of a lovely

SENATE RACE IS BIG ISSUE
Guest'Editorial By Russell Kay
While this is an off year as far as elections are
concerned, with a contest for a seat in the United
States senate to be decided and two such experi-
enced and able contenders in the race as Claude
Pepper and George Smathers slugging it out on
the stump, we can look for considerable public
'The battle lines are already clearly drawn,
with Claude openly and vociferously champion-
ing the New Deal, Fair Deal and Welfare State,
which means more federal controls, more reck-
less spending, more boondoggle, more people on
the payroll, more concessions to labor, pensions
for everybody, with the old political gravy train
running hog wild and who cares where the
money's coming from, on the one hand.
And on the other, an appeal for a balanced na-
tional budget, for economy in government, cul-
mination of waste, and a sound economic pro-
gram that will give business and industry at
least, half a chance to function.
As the matter stands, Pepper has the advant-
age,: the man in office always doe6i`. He. is as-
sured of a large block of votes to stArt with, of-
fice holders, political beneficiaries, aid the vast
army of "gimmie" folks who want more and bet-
ter pensions, less work and more pay, shorter.'
hours, more relief, free medical and hospital ser-
vice and a passport to the Life of Riley at some-
body else's expense. Pepper, like Truman, knows
how to promise. Whether they can make good is
beside the point.
The 1949 pension battle is only part of the
Welfare State.idea. Promises will be piled on top
of promises, workers will look forward to a dol-
lar an hour minimum wage, lower housing costs
-and the thoughtless will believe-and what's
more, they will vote.
Those who oppose this wild and radical pro-
* gram of tax and tax, spend and spend, elect and
elect will find they have a job on their hands.
They can cite statistics, use the clearest of logic
and prove on paper that we are heading the
wrong way, but for the most part their pleas will
fall on deaf ears. They are ridiculed as reac-
There are enough votes uncast at every elec-
tion to swing the balance, and most of these
would count against the Welfare State if they
were gotten to the polls, but if the business man,
the professional man, the civic club man, and the
vast army of honest, hard-working sincere Am-,
ericans are too busy or too indifferent to get
out and work and vote, then they will have only
theroselves to blame, and they will find the bu-
reaucratic net drawn tighter and tighter about
their necks, with individual freedom and free
enterprise pushed further into the background.
The people must be made to realize that there
is no such thing as something for nothing; that
we must work and produce if we are to live; that
it is no.more possible for a government to con-
tinually spend beyond its income and stay sol-
vent than it is for an individual.
They must be made to understand that when
they turn to the government for aid, then it fol-
lows as the night the day that they become
charges of that government, subject to its con-
trol, and must relinquish their individual free-
dom of thought and action. They must expect to
have more and more taken from their pay en-
velope, submit to bureaucratic regulations and
accept more and more restrictions until they
eventually find themselves slaves who live only
to serve political overlords.
Our present political leaders will pit class
against class, scream "soak the rich," play to
racketeering labor overlords and stop at nothing
to get the votes necessary to keep them in power.
They have already cast to the four winds the
principles of such leaders as Washington, Jeffer-
son and Lincoln to follow the road that history
has shown, over and over again, leads only to
ARE LOW PRICES 'BAD'?
There has been an almost incredibly large
amount of newspaper comment on the govern-
ment's anti-trust suit against the Atlantic & Pa-
cific Tea Company, the nation's largest food
chain system. Most of. it is concerned with two
themes-first, that A&P obviously has no mon-
opoly and must compete with thousands of other
stores for business, even as the A&P in Port St.
Joe competes with the Quality Grocery, McCoy's
Store, Rich's Curb Market, Stephens Cash and
Carry and others, and, second, that it looks as
if the suit is destined to destroy "bigness" just
because it is blr. .
The Union-Republican, of Albia, Iowa, ex-
pressed a moderate view when it said: "As the
A&P points, out, there is a reason for its growth,
and that reason is patronage. There is a reason
for the growth of other chains, just as there is a
reason why we must continue to have our inde-
pendents and why such independents will con-
tinue to exisf regardless of any competition that
the chains can give.
"Frankly, the Union-Republican is not much
worried about the A&P. That firm can take care
. of itself. But we don't particularly agree with a
number of the implications of the suit against
the firm, and the effect such implications will
have on other lines of business as well as the
retail food line.
"To an extent the suit seems to be an attempt
to penalize a successful firm, to penalize effici-
ency of operation, to revise a system of distribu-
tion which has proved itself successful."
A&P's crime, apparently, is that it reduced
prices to the consumer. If that is a crime, thou-
sands of other businesses, in retailing and in all
other fields,, are also guilty. Then, efficiency,
economy and go6d service must be considered
"bad." And waste and high prices must be con-

Schools Are Not
Says School Head
Cost of State Government
Shows Greater Increase,
He Points Out
Thomas D. Bailey, state school
superintendent, says that rumors
being spread in the state that the
schools are "bankrupting the state"
In an article prepared for the
magazine, "The School Director,"
Bailey wrote: "On the contrary, ex-
penditures for public school educa-
tion have not kept pace with the in-
-creasing cost of government in
general and, percentagewise, have
lagged behind many other state
Bailey did not say who is spread-
ing the rumors. He declared the
schools are singled out as one of
the first places to reduce expenses
because the benefits of education
are not as immediately apparent as
the benefits of roads, parks and
buildings, and because the children
in school cannot vote.
"Although the state has increased
its appropriation for public and ele-
mentary schools from $11,745,978
in 1937-38 to $39,544,278 in 1947-48,
10 years later, the percentage of
the people's income spent for the
schools remained the same for both
years-2.9%," Bailey wrote.
"We have simply kept pace with
the earning power of our people, no
more no less. Does that sound like
the schools are bankrupting the
The Florida school head said the
cost of Florida government in-'
creased 290.1% in the last 10 years
but that during the same time.the
increase for schools amounted to
only 253.12% -less than the in-
crease for other and all functions
Bailey said in 1937-38 "22.68% of
all state government operating ex-
penditures went to public elemen-
tary and secondary schools, but 10
years later the schools' portion of
the state's operating expenses
amounted to only 20.53%-less than
it was 10 years ago."

Proposed Budget Would Cost Each

ida About $250 Per Year
If congress should adopt in full
the $42,400,000,000 budget proposed
by your friend (he ain't ours) Presi-
dent Truman for the fiscal year
ending June 30, 1951, Florida tax-
payers will be required to pay out
approximately $547,463,100 in fed-
eral taxes as their share of the cost
of this spending program.
This estimate is made by the
Florida State Chamber of Com-
merce in a statement based on an
analysis of the president's budget
recommendations which were sub-
mitted to congress on January 9.
The state chamber's estimate of
$547,463,100 as Florida's share of
the cost of the president's $42,400.-
000,000 spending budget for 1951
was based on the fact that Florida
residents and taxpayers presently
bear 1.29% of the total federal tax
burden. Since federal expenditures
are met wholly by taxation, 1.29%
of the $42,400,000,000 amounts to

Is it a crime to give people more good food for their money?
For 90 years A&P has devoted all its energies to this end.

radio about this company.
They have been making serious and damaging allegations about the methods
that enable A&P to give its customers better food values.
We have already told you about other times the anti-trust lawyers made
charges against us that were proved utterly false in court.
Now we are going to tell you about the third time a federal judge decided -
against the anti-trust lawyers.
The Dallas Anti-Trust Suit
In 1942 the anti-trust lawyers went out to
Dallas, Texas, 1,400 miles from the homes of
most of the defendants, and instigated crimi-
nal charges against A&P.
About this case one thing was sure.
Their previous experience did not deter the anti-trust
lawyers from making more inflammatory and damaging
allegations, just as they had done before.,
They made practically the same allegations
they are making today.
Federal Judge W. H. Atwell ruled that the case should
not even be tried..
He said that the indictment contained inflammatory state-
ments that he would not permit to be presented to a jury.
Judge Atwell said to the anti-trust lawyers:
"If I thought I was presiding over a court
and that I might have to sentence some
person because he was a great big fellow,
or because he was a Lilliputian, I would
feel like resigning. God knows we don't
want it ever to occur in America that the
'size is going to determine whether a man
is guilty or innocent."
THE GREAT ATLANTIC &
Judge Atwell also said to the anti-trust lawyers:
"If the indictment is not good then it is bet-
ter to find out before an expensive trial
than it is after an expensive trial. I do not
think it is good, and thinking that, it is my
duty to sustain the demuirrers and motion
In short, Federal Judge Atwell threw the anti-
trust lawyers and their case right out of his court.
So that makes three times that the anti-trust lawyers made
damaging allegations against A&P. In two of these cases
federal judges said they were all wrong. In the third case a
federal judge said the indictment was inflammatory and
he would not even permit the case to be tried.
The anti-tru'- '-wyers were not satisfied with the Dallas
Neither were they satisfied with the two other decisions in
which federal courts administered stinging rebukes to them.
They were still determined to destroy A&P.
In our next ad we will tell you how they con-
tinued their campaign in this case in the Circuit
Court of Appeals and subsequent proceedings.
We will show you how, once again, they dis.
agreed with the courts.

Says Patrol Chief
Florida Gets Bad Start In '50
With 66 People Killed
"Speeders will be arrested," is
the warning issued this week by
Director H. N. Kirkman in announc-
ing orders to the Florida Highway
"Florida is getting off to a bad
start in 1950," he said. "We killed
66 people in traffic accidents dur-
ing January, which is a 21% in-
,crease over the 52 killed in Janu-
ary of 1949. Our records show that
speed is the chief cause of acci-
-dents and we intend to do our part
in reducing Florida's fatalities. If
we are forced to put people ia jail
to keep them from killing them-
selves or others, we can do just
Adding that excessive speed is a
year around traffic problem and is
the chief contributor to Florida's
accident record, Kirkman pointed
out that accidents reported to the
patrol show 27% of the drivers in
fatal accidents were either exceed-
ing the lawful speed or traveling
too fast for existing conditions.
Florida law states that any open
highway speed in excess of 50 miles
per hour at night and 60 miles per
hour in the daytime is prima facie
evidence of reckless driving.
"In spite of our'increased efforts
to cut the traffic toll, we are still
killing more than two people per
day in the state," continued Kirk-

Demonstration Makes Large Force To Take
New Floors From Old
Club Women Get Instructions On
Proper Method of Fin-
New floors have been made from
old stained floors through a floor-
finishing demonstration held re-
cently at the home of Mrs. J. T.
Land as a part of the work of Home
Demonstration Clubs in the county.
The change is as great as the
change from night to day, is the
conclusion reached by the women
attending the demonstration.
The living room floor in the Land
home, made of oak, was used for
the demonstration, and after being
,finished, received a coat of stain
around the rug for partial protec-
tion. The refinished floor was com-
pared to the old floor in an adjoin-
ing room, and there is no compari-
son in the "before and after" ef-
fects. The finish used does not
scratch like varnish, and the points
receiving the most wear can be re-
finished without doing over the en-
tire floor. It was finished with a
penetrating floor sealer and waxed.
This is how the women were in-
structed in the refinishing process:
First they "knocked off" the old
stain with an electric sanding ma-
chine using coarse (No. 4) sandpa-
per, this operation being done with
the grain of the wood. When they
reached the wood, finer sandpaper
was used, No. 2 and No. 1/2. But
three sandings were necessary.
When the sanding was complete,
two coats of penetrating floor seal
were applied, and a motor-driven
disc of steel wool was used to pol-
ish the floor after each coat had
dried. Two coats of floor wax were
then applied and buffed to complete

ment may be secured through the
