County Boards Would
Under Legislative Act
Bill Dropped In Legislative Hopper
By Tapper Would Let People
Know Where Money Goes
For some time past neither the
Gulf county school board nor the
board of county commissioners
have been publishing a list of their
expenditures, and consequently the
taxpayers of the county have had
no idea of how much money is be-
ing spent by the two boards nor
- where it goes.
SThis matter would be remedied
-by a bill introduced last Friday in
the legislature by Representative
George Tapper providing that the
board of county commissioners and
the board of public instruction of
,Gulf county publish minutes of all
meetings and a list of all experidi-
tures. The bill also provides that
the matter shall be passed upon by
voters of the county.
The act, in full, follows:
."The board of county commis-
.sioners and the board of public in-
struction of Gulf county shall pub-
lish.,minutes of each meeting with-
in five days after such meeting,
and before the 10th day of each
month shall publish a list of all ex-
penditures for the .previous month,
showing the voucher. number, the
date, to whom paid, and the amount
paid. All such publications shall be
in a newspaper of general circula-
tion published in the county.
"This act shall bE~ore effeui\ve
upon being raitfied and-approved
by a majority of the electors of
Gulf county voting at an election to
be held for that purpose on or be-
fore October 1, 1951, and which
the county commissioners of Gulf
county are hereby required to call

Joe, as they will thrive in any type
of soil, can "take it" when there is
no rain, and have a long blooming

The color range of daylilies runs
from pale pink to so deep a.red as
to be almost black, as well as the
familiar yellows. They are inexpen-
sive, multiply rapidly and make a
delightful addition to any garden.

Sday,and see these daylilies.

Tallahassee, May 23 -The con-
ference committee,has been ap-
pointed by the house and senate to
work out the differences in the gen-
eral appropriation;. bill and we
should have some report the later
part of this week. As the bill now
stands, there is approximately ten
to eleven million dollars difference.
A bill which I introduced this
week pertains to the& publication of
minutes and expenditures of the
board of county commissioners and
county school board,; also, at the
request of the school board, I of-
fered a salary bill which would pay
them $50 per month.; Both of these
bills carry a referendum and the
people will have an opportunity to
vote on them in October.
The appropriation bill for $10,-
000 for Constitution Park has been
reported favorably by the house
committee on appropriations and is
now on the calendar.
It appears that I am going to
have to introduce a bill doing away
with closed season on mullet in

counties of Franklin, Wakulla and

away with the closed season in

The house has also passed a bill

introduced in the house by Repre-

FEE SYSTEM ABOLITION
At long last a move is underway to abolish the
outmoded, expensive and inefficient fee system
of Florida and place all county officers on a
A bill providing fbr just this has been intro-
duced in the legislature, and provides for the
county fee officers such as the sheriff, justice of
peace, constables, county judge, county clerk,
assessor and tax collector to pay their receipts
into the county's general fund. Under the meas-
ure the legislature would provide by general law
of statewide application upon a reasonable class-
ification, the salaries, expenses and compensa-
tion paid to all county officers.
Under the present system, one of the greatest
wa.stes is in operation of offices. Under the pres-
ent setup most fee officers may incur almost any
amount of expense within the realms of reason.
There is little or no check on buying equipment,

hiring employes, etc., as long as the fees of the

loses, as surplus fees would go back to the county
if expenses were not so great.
Most states have long ago gotten away from
the fee system, and let us hope that Florida, too,
will do away with the practice.
FLORIDA'S HISTORIC SITES
The monetary value placed on the numerous
historic and archaeological sites located within
the boundaries of our state is decidedly a sec-
ondary consideration to their importance as an
expression of dignity and prestige of Floridians.
-' The state of Florida is not made up of the
sweep of beaches or the pine-clad plains and
hills which they encompass, but of the 2,500,000
persons who now make this area their home.
Floridans,, regardless of whether they are the
descendants of colonial or ante-bellum families,
or are persons of discrimination who make it
their home from choice, should realize that in
choosing their residence, they became the in-
heritors of an unexcelled historical tradition, ex-
tending for nearly four centuries into a past
richly filled with dramatic events. Many of these
events were associated with structures which
have survived, often without protection, the rav-
ages of time and vandalism until today.
The preservation of these historic sites, such
as the old St. Joseph cemetery, for instance, is a
concern of mounting importance. The survival
of many of these structures is largely attributable
to their location in hitherto inaccessible locations,
but with the extension of roads and the encroach-
ment of many developments, the old security
disappears and their further preservation is
threatened unless the state assumes custodian-
ship. Means should and must be devised for
their preservation for posterity'.
Trade with your home-town merchants.
In ways, Georgia seems 'to be all
right and in other ways, not
so good. For instance, when
we took off Thursday of last week
to visit Myrtice's uncle and aunt,
Doc and Mrs. Coody, who have a
fish pond of abbut two acres on
their rancho, we found, much to
our disgust, that with an estimated
3000 bream, warmouth, trout and
shellcrackers in this small body of
water, none of them were inter-
ested in becoming impaled on our
hook. Doc had been whooping up
the amount of fish he had (by let-
ter), and we were all a-glow with
visions of hauling in a few eight or
ten-pound bass (he was offering a
dollar bill to anyone wha'd catch
a 12-pounder that iwas eating up
the small fish'), and so when we ar-
rived we took o.ur casting rod and
hied ourself to the dam.

Wildlife Officer Allen LeGrone
informs us that the fish are not
biting much at present, probably
due to the fact that the large ones
are bedding. However, he says that
the little ones are biting, and that
an ardent Izaak Walton, by putting
in a hard day, probably can pick
up a fair string of the larger ones.
He particularly warns fishermen
that the season does dot open un-

Thirteen wide-eyed members of
Brownie Scout Troop No. 3 visited
The Star office Tuesday afternoon
to see the wheels go 'round and
learn how a newspaper is issued.
They were particularly interested
in the linotype which sets the type
for the paper, crowding around it
like bees around a honey pot. Each
was given a "slug" with their name
on it and a penny bearing the year
of their birth embedded in the side
of it as a memento of the occasion.
They were quite jubilant over the
fact that now, with the use of an
ink pad, they can print their names
instead of writing it.

What Happened Last Week In Tallahassee
By J. KENNETH BALLINGER
With the economy dykes broken,
the Florida legislature is coasting
toward adjournment next week. The
major two-year spending bills for
state government have been passed
by both houses, this week will be
reconciled, and one bill submitted
to Governor Warren.
The house of representatives un-
der economy-minded Representative
Morgan of Duval, started with an
appropriation bill of $244,000,000,
but when the members got to think-
ing about the old folks and the
schools, theyhiked this to $268,000,-
000. The senate had approved a to-
tal spending program of $278,000,-
000, but their bill included $10,000,-
000 to repair and build new build-
ings at state institutions.
So far, the house has failed to
take action on the amended .3%
sales tax bill passed by the senate,
to make up the difference between
what the state gets now and what
it will need.
Harness Racing Bill Approved
Racing threatened-again to break
up a legislative session in a cloud
of scandal. Rep. B. Elliott of Palm
Beach county had introduced a bill
to allow harness racing in that
county. A house committee killed
it, but he appealed for votes and
got unanimous approval of the bill.
Following the vote, the speaker
marched to the clerk's desk, took
the bill in hand and personally car-
ried it to the senate. Other racing
bills in the past have mysteriously
disappeared on this short journey.
Revise County Budget-Making
Both house and senate have com-
pleted action on a revision of the
laws of budget-making by county
commissioners, originally sponsored
,by the state association of county
commissioners. It reduces to sum-
mary form the contents of proposed
county budgets, as a substitute for
adequate public notice given to the
taxpayers under existing law. The
senate by a close voice vote de-
feated efforts of Senator J. Min
Ayers to restore notice to the pub-
lic on preliminary budgets.
The legislature also has voted to
increase from $300 to $1000 the
limit of purchases county commis-
sioners can make without calling
for competitive bids.
SCrime Drive Bogs Down
The legislative d r i v e against
crime bogged down when it tried
to control public officials. The sen-
ate has rejected a proposal to make
sheriffs and other peace officers
subject to recall by.the people.
Elsewhere a committee had put
to sleep a bill to prohibit an indi-
vidual from owning a controlling
interest in more than one race
track. The senate also killed a bill
to let the state monitor telephone
conversations to get evidence on
Otherwise, the lawmakers bore
down heavily on gamblers, approv-
ing in the senate mandatory jail
sentences for bookies, banning tip-
sheets and newspaper selections,
prohibiting transmission of racing
information for 30 minutes after
each race, canceling hotel and bar
licenses where gambling is per-
mitted, and tightened up on the
control of telephone and telegraph
services used for bookmaking.
Would Open Welfare Rolls
The house has approved a bill to
open welfare rolls to the public by
putting names of old folks getting
pensions on record with'-eelerks of
the circuit court. This issue has
been followed by committee ap-
proval of bills in both'houses re-
quiring elderly needy people to file
suits for non-support against their
children before they can become
eligible for aid. Senator Johnnie
Wright of DeFuniak Springs has
protested this feature, as well as
the publication of relief rolls, and
has indicated he will fight both
proposals in the senate. ,
The house was told by Represen-
tative Richard Simpson of Jeffer-
son that if the federal government
should threaten to withhold federal
matching funds because of welfare
publicity, the cabinet would be au-
thorized to close them again. Other
requirements to put liens on the
property of welfare clients are now
Press Muzzling Bills'Fail
A house committee has killed the
massive insurance code which had
passed the senate and which would
have gathered into one place the
insurance laws of the state.
A senate committee has given an
unfavorable report to a bill to tax
Hadacol like wine because of its
high alcoholic content.
A house committee, rejected bills
to investigate the Tampa Tribune,
and gave unfavorable reports to
measures which would have can-
celed out the libel laws, required
newspapers to open their pages for
answer to any criticism of official
conduct, and required newspapers
and radio stations to get approval
of a candidate for office before his
friends could place advertising.
Still unsettled is a resolution to in-
vestigate the Miami Herald.
The rash of anti-newspaper bills
at this session of the legislature
has not yet been traced to their
source, but capital observers agree
most of them are coming from the
same place. All are attempts at
muzzling the free press.
Would Modify Blue Laws
A bill to authorize title prize-
fights in Florida has passed both
houses. Also, both houses have ap-
proved a bill to modify Sunday blue
laws, and permit transportation,

BARREL TO SPUR DONATIONS FOR CANCER FUND
A new plan to fight cancer was given a sendoff in Leesburg Wednes-
day of this week when the barrel pictured above made its initial ap-
pearance at the Leesburg Watermelon Festival. George Rast, state
treasurer of Fight Cancer, Inc., stated that the barrel is to be taken to
fairs and festivals in Florida in an effort to spur donations. The money
is to be turned over to the Damon Runyon Memorial Fund for cancer
research. Comely young lady atop barrel is Rhoda Jane Williams, a
maid of honor in the watermelon festival's beauty conte-_t.
Are Warned To Watch
For Rubber Checks
Commissioner of Agriculture Says
Produce Buyers Often Give
Nathan Mayo, commissioner of
agriculture has released a state-
ment intended as a tipoff to Flor-
ida growers, directing attentionto
the importance of making certain
that buyers of farm produce 'had
qualified under the Florida Agricul-
tural Bond and License Act.
"Specifically," said Mayo, "I wish
to warn watermelon growers whose
melons are now rolling to market
that they should be on the alert for
unbonded purchasers. The Florida
act, passed in 1941, requires pur-
chasers of farm crops from pro-
ducers to qualify by obtaining a
license and filing bond guarantee-
ing the payment for the produce
bought from the producer.
"This act, often referred to as
the 'cash on the barrelhead' act,
was passed-to put an end to trans-
actions under which Florida farm-
ers and growers were often fleeced
by accepting payment in the form
of rubber checks for their produce.
The sum total of ithe losses to Flir-
ida growers under the bad check
system ran into many thousands of
dollars per year.
"Hundreds of carlpts of water-
melons, cabbage, beans, tomatoes
and other vegetables were paid for
with spurious checks which bounced
back in the face of the grower
days after his produce had been de-
livered to some distant city, and all
he had for his hard work was a
check carrying the doleful words
'Insufficient Funds' or 'No Account.'
Under the present agricultural
bond and license law, every dealer
in agricultural products must ob-
tain a license from the commis-
sioner of agriculture and file a
surety bond for the protection of
the grower from whom he makes
Violation of the act constitutes a
misdemeanor and the first offense
calls for a fine of not less than $250
or imprisonment up to six months,
while the second or subsequent of-
lense brings down a fine of $500 or
imprisonment up to one year, or

Florida growers, it would seem,
would do well before selling any-
thing from their farms, to make
certain that the purchaser is
bonded, unless they get cool cash
in hand. Those who ship on con-
signment or trust a persuasive
buyer with their produce without
knowing that he is bonded, do so
at their own risk.
