What Happened Last Week In Tallahassee
By J. KENNETH BALLINGER
The legislature of Florida has
paved the way for a $150,000,000
school building program, if the
voters approve in 1952. Both sen-
ate and house have completed ac-
tion on the proposed constitutional
amendment to earmark a part of
the automobile license tag money
to pay for school bonds.
This is the No. 2 item on the
school program for this session, the
first being an increase in the state
support of common schools from
$99,000,000 during the current two
years to $120,000,000 for the next
The agreement to a change in the
constitution to authorize school
bonds backed by a pledge of money
from auto tags is considered by
school people as the biggest single
advance in education since the min-
imum foundation program law of
Would Stop Pay for School 'Frills'
Both houses of the legislature
have agreed to stop state payment
for certain educational "frills," but
they are miles apart on how to do
it. Separate, bills have passed each
house, one to stop payment for kin-
dergartens, junior colleges and auto
driver education courses. The other
eliminates new kindergartens, new
junior colleges and all driver edu-
cation .In addition, the house voted
to eliminate all summer programs.
One other education bill is being
polished up as complete. It requires
students getting scholarships to be-
come tetlchers to 'train for those"
grades in which there is the great-
est lack of trained teachers.
Patriotism continues confused in
the Florida legislature. The house
appropriations committee cut a re-
quested civil defense appropriation
from $460,000 to $50,000, indicating
eiltef the" do hot believe the 'S'.
faces danger, or they have their
minds on other things.
A bill to require common school
students to be taught Americanism
is bottled up in a hostile senate
committee, after passing the house.
A similar bill to require American-
ism. to be taught in state-supported
colleges and universities died in a
house committee.' Chief opposition
was from school blocs, resentful of
*"meddling" in their choice of
Two New Congressional Districts
Two new congressional districts,
7th and 8th, will come into being
as a result of legislative work. The
bill, which has found favor in both
houses, leaves the 15-county 3rd dis-
trict intact, carves out the 8th dis-
trict from, north-central counties,
reaching from Madison to Nassau.
The new 7th district will. center
around Pollk county, with several
others. Hillsborough, Pasco and
Hernando are counted on to over-
balance the Republican sentiment
in Pinellas county, in the revised
1st district. Duval and Clay make'
up one district, Dade and Monroe
Florida gains two more congress-
men from its increased population.
Considering Revenue Bills
Both houses will 'be neck-deep in
figures this week, as they start
ironing out differences in the big
.two-year spending 'bills for state
agencies paid from the general
The frugal house committee sent
out a bill calling for $244,000,000 in
the next two years, which is $8,-
000,000 less than recommended by
the state budget board. Largest
item is for common schools. They
hoped for $120,000,000; were given
$112,000,000 in the house bill.
The senate version is following,
and with four weeks yet to go, this
toughest problem of each session
may be worked out to the satisfac-
tion of the taxpayers before the
dying hours of the session.
Utilities Would Pay for Regulation
A bill to tax all public utilities
for the cost of their own regulation
has been introduced into the sen-
ate by its finance and taxation com-
mittee, following legislative ap-
proval of the Dowda bill to put pri-
vately owned electric and gas com-
panies under state railroad and pub-

Sales Tax Bill Embalmed
What has happened to the re-
vised sales tax which breezed so
,blithely through the senate, prom-
ising to provide $17,500,000 more
per year for state government?
Answer: The revised sales tax iS
being embalmed in the house fi-
nance and taxation committee, with
a leisurely series of hearings
scheduled for this week, and pos-
sibly a swift death stroke from the
committee at the end.-
The house leaders have vowed
322 Monument Avenue
that no new taxes shall pass. The
same group controlled the iron-
fisted appropriation bill just re-
leased, and which can pay for state
government, they believe, without
new taxes. It will take a major
house revolt, not'at this time in the
making, for the house to change its
mind and follow the senate into
more liberal treatment of state in-
Measure Would Restrict
Sale of Many Exeryday
Items To Pharmacies Only
The so-called uniform pharmacy
bill, Senate Bill No. 512 and House
Bill No. 619, now before the Florida
legislature, defines "drug" as any-
thing intended to affect the struc-
ture or any function of the body of
man or animal, including cosmetics,
toilet articles, toothpaste, aspirin,
talcum powder, etc. It would pro-
I hibit the sale of any of these ar-
ticles, including patent medicines,
by any store which is not licensed
as a pharmacy.
This means that no store except
a pharmacy as registered under this
bill could sell any cosmetics, any
toothpaste, any rubbing alcohol,
any vitamin tablets, any laxatives.
Opponents of the measure point
out that this bill would, if it be-
comes law, require general stores
in small communities either to stop his garden, one weighing al even
selling many of the articles they pound and the other a pound and a

Our Country Right or Wrong
IT COULD HURT THE POLITICIANS
There have been a number of bills introduced
in the present session of the legislature endeavor-
ing to regulate newspapers in various ways, and
the latest is one by-Representative Dowda to
compel newspapers to charge the same for po-
litical advertising as for any other commercial
advertising, the cry being that "the exorbitant
rates charged by some newspapers for political
advertisements have made it impossible for many
competent and deserving persons to make an ef-
fective campaign for public ooice without first
accepting large campaign contributions."
While the measure has no relationship to elec-,
tions (normally it would have gone to the com-
mnittee on public printing), it has been reported
favorably by the election committee, which isL
headed by Representative George Tapper.
One of the reasons for an extra charge for po-

BOY SCOUT NEWS
TIM ELDER, Troop Scribe
Boy Scout Troop 47 held a green-
bar patrol meeting Thursday night
Of last week at the Scout Hut. Our
scoutmaster, J. T. Simpson, was in
charge. Mr. Roberts, one of our
commissioners, was also present.
Boys present were Earl McCormick,
one of the senior patdol leaders,
Raymond Lawrence, Leroy Gainous,
Donald Ramsey and Timothy El-
der, patrol leaders. Purpose of the
meeting was to prepare the lead-
ers for the next month's work.
The troop has been split into four
patrols headed by the older boys.
Each patrol consists of eight boys
who have separate meetings during
the scout meeting.
Each month will present a new
theme in the troop. During May we
will do our best to catch up and get
a good record of what we have and
need. During June the theme will.
be "Camping," which is of prime
importance in the game of scouting.
It was decided that patrol lead-
ers will meet with Scoutmaster
'Simpson the last Thursday of each
month for discussion, and that the
troop have a board-of-review the
lasts Monday of each month. It is
also planned to have at least one
camping trip each month.
We invite all persons interested
in scouting to come to any of the
regular Monday night meetings.
