Local Boys Will Leave
Sunday for Boys' State
Two Youths Will Study State and
Local Governments In Week
At State University
Willis V. Rowan Post 116, Amer-
ican Legion, has completed plans
for sending two local boys to the
annual Boys' State to be held June
24-30 at Florida State University,
The boys are Jimmy Philyaw,
sponsored by the Legion, and La-
mar Freeman, sponsored by the lo-
cal chapter of the Loyal Order of
Moose. Each of the 'boys have com-
pleted their junior year at the Port
St. Joe high school, and were se-
lected on the basis of their out-
standing character and leadership
in their classes.
The boys will leave St. Joe Sun-
day morning for the state capital
and a week that will 'be long re-
membered. No one will accompany
them. The sponsoring organizations
are paying the expenses of the two,
including transportation, room and
board and spending money.
Along with 308 other boys from
all over Florida attending this
year's Boys' State, Jimmy and La-
mar will spend the entire week
studying the fundamental princi-
ples of our American government
through actual practices in the du-
ties of city, county and state offices.
Florida Power Installing
If you're wondering what that 65-
" tirtordio'riast is doitig bck;of the
Florida Power Corporation building
on Reid Avenue, it is part of a
short wave communication system
being installed to afford quick com-
munication between various offices
of the company and its trucks.
In addition to the installation in
St. Joe, units will be placed in op-
eration at Apalachicola, Carrabelle
and Jackson Bluff. All trucks of the
company will also be equipped with
sending and receiving sets.
Rich Porter, local manager, says
it is really a big step forward, as it
will give almost instant communi-
cation between the'various district
offices as well as crews out on the
COUNTY'S TAX ON TIDELANDS
HELD VALID BY STATE COURT

Tuesday that Florida's coastal coun-
ties have the right to levy taxes on

Tax On Incomes
To Pay Teachers
Would Call Special Session
If Legislators Will Agree To
Submit Matter To People
Governor Fuller Warren Tuesday
proposed a state tax on annual in-
comes of $10,000 and more to fi-
nance a $300-a-year increase in pay
for Florida's school teachers.
Warren said he would call the
legislature *back in special session
only if three-fourths of its members
will pledge themselves to submit
the question of a tax on incomes to
the people for decision. Because the
state constitution presently pro-
hibits the levying of a tax on in-
comes, it would be necessary for
the legislature to put a repealing
amendment before the electorate.
Warren's statement, relayed from
a vacation spot, said: "It would per-
mit big corporations, with annual
incomes of hundreds of thousands
and even millions of dollars, which
now are paying little if any taxes,
to provide the $12,000,000 which will
be required during the coming bi-
ennium to pay school teachers a
$300 per year increase in salary."
Asserting that power companies
"now pay little more than token
state taxes," Warren said that "it
would not hurt them at all to make
small tax contributions to our pub-
lic school system." Continuing, he
said that "banks are the biggest
aggregaiton of wealth in Florida,
and they pay even less state taxes
than power companies. Their con-
tinued rich prosperity depends in
large measure on the maintenance
of a sound school system.
"If these, and other great sources
of wealth in Florida, would back
this proposal, it could be put over
as a permanent source of school
revenue. It would be a fine ahd pa-
triotic thing for them to do and it

Our Country Right or Wrong
HE'S GOT SOMETHING THERE
Representative Edward R. Kirkland of Orange
county has come up with an idea that really is a
wow, and one that should have been put into ef-
fect years ago. He recommends control of racing
and jai alai profits on the same basis as public
utilities, mainly as a means of financing a $300-
a-year teacher salary raise.
Kirkland points out that private and public
utilities are held down to a profit of six to eight
per cent on the amount invested, and so why not
limit race tracks and jai alai frontons to the same
A glance as the report of the state racing com-
mission shows that profits on these operations
run as high as 300 per cent a year on the invest-
ment-and the race tracks operate only a maxi-
mum of 90 days out of a year.

TEN YEARS AGO
From the Files of The Star
Tapper Named Harbor Master,
Capt. Robert Tapper of this city
was named as harbor master for
the local port June 6 by Governor
Spessard Holland, succeeding Capt.
A. M. Jones, who has held the posi-
tion for the past three years. Tap-
per will hold the job until the No-
vember 1942 elections, when the
people of Gulf county will vote on
the office as per a local bill passed
at this legislative session.
Colored 'Healer' Held
Joe Lyons, coal-black negro from
the West Indies, self-styled "divine
.healer," is being held in the county
jail on complaints filed by four
white women that he used obscene
and suggestive language in their
presence. Lyons had an office in
the colored quarters at Kenney's
Mill where he worked on the super-
stitious beliefs of the negroes, as-
serting that he could cure all dis-
eases through his divine powers.
Kiwanis Club Names Directors
At the regular meeting of the Ki-
wanis Club held Thursday evening
at the Port Inn, Roy Williams, L. L.
Zimmerman, Lindsay Temple, Bert
Hull, Bo Brown, C. W. Horton and
John Blount were elected as mem-
(bers of the board of directors of
the newly-formed organization, and
Thomas R. L. Carter was named as
secretary. The name of Sheriff B.
E. Parker was added to the roll of
charter members at this time.

By J. Kenneth Ballinger .
Although clamor for a special
session of the legislature continued
to increase in school circles, the
prospects for such a session for the
single purpose of providing state
funds for a $300 cost-of-living in-
crease for school teachers remain
uncertain. Leading educators will
meet with Governor Warren in Tal-
lahassee June 27 to discuss such a
Legislative opinion remains di-
vided on the subject. Many favor
putting it up to local school boards
and local taxpayers to provide the
increase. Others point to the fact
that a special legislative session,
even though called for that one sub-
ject, can waive the rule by a two-
thirds vote and consider anything.
Further, those members who can-
not afford to remain in Tallahassee
at their own expense for 20 days
might demand pay, and others
would fall in line.
Some two-thirds of the members
have indicated they will serve with-
out pay, but there is no sign of
weakening in the issue which split
the session at the end, whether to
take the required $12,000,000 for
the pay raise out of a broadened
sales tax on small consumers, or
from higher taxes on big machinery
and equipment purchases.
Twelve changes in the Florida
constitution will be offered to the
voters in November of 1952, for
adoption or rejection. If adopted,
these changes would earmark a
part of the state auto tag money
for the next 30 years to build
school houses, add three justices to
the seven-member state supreme
court, give home rule to counties
through uniform charter laws, es-
tablish two new senatorial dis-
tricts-one in Monroe county and
the other in Bay and Washington
counties-and make minor changes
in several counties.
New Racing Commission
A new state racing commission
took over this week from a five-

LeBlanc Would Be
Foolish To Sell Out
Hadacol, Says Kay
But Twenty Million Bucks Can
Swing A Lot of Votes In
By RUSSELL KAY
It seems that some guys never
learn, for I see by the papers that
Senator Dudley LeBlanc of Louisi-
ana, America's No. 1 public bene-
factor who gave us Hadacol and
even surpassed Lydia Pinkham in
service to the human race, is grow-
ing weary of making an honest liv-
ing and yearns to get back into
According to a recent press dis-
patch, the senator is toying with
the idea of selling his Hadacol busi-
ness to a big drug house for $20,-
000,000 and running for governor of
While I'm not familiar with Lou-
isiana politics, I should imagine
that a guy ought to be able to make
a pretty good gubernatorial race
with a campaign fund of $20,000,-
000, provided the value of the dol-
lar doesn't drop too much between
now and the time of election.
Just why anybody with $20,000,-
000 would want to actually run for
governor is hard to understand.
With that kind of dough a guy
ought to be able to sit on the side-
lines and elect a dozen governors
while he had all the fun and none
of the grief.
Few folks who have been tramp-
ling all over each other to buy a
family-sized bottle of Hadacol at
$3.19 each ever realized that they
were making a contribution to a
gubernatorial campaign, and if the
senator does get elected he will
have more constituents scattered
over more territory than any candi-
date in history.
Now the senator has the love,
gratitude and affection of millions
of folks who, prior to the discovery
of Hadaccl, suffered with every-
thing from hangnails to perncious
anemia, but after taking 6, 10 to a
dozen bottles are now so chipper
that they can walk upstairs on their
hands or chin themselves with one
paw tied behind them.
According to reports, every in-
coming mail brings the senator let-
ters of thanks and gratitude from
hither and yon, and he is mentioned
in the prayers of former sufferers.
If successful in his campaign for
governor he still probably will be
the recipient of plenty of mail, but
I doubt if it will be as interesting
or pleasant to peruse as that he
He will still hear from sufferers,
but they will be burdened with ail-
ments that no amount of Hadacol
will relieve. They will probably
read something like this:
"Dear Governor You probably
don't remember me, but I met you
when you were in our parish dur-
ing the campaign. I'm the guy who
worked for you 18 hours a day pass-
ing out circulars, and I personally
delivered 183 votes.
"But, governor, I was your friend
long before you decided to run for
governor. I started taking Hadacol
'way back in the early days, me and
my whole family all took it and are
still taking it.
"Thanks to you I'm so full of pep,
vim and vigor that I just can't sit
around doin' nothing like I used to.
I gotta have a job. I can't read or
write, but I can ride a motorcycle
and would like a job as a state pa-
trolman, or tag inspector, or some-
thing. Thanks governor, and God
bless you. Your friend--Pierre."
Well, it is the senator's life. He
probably knows what he wants, but
if it was me, I'd rather stay home
and play Hadacol than be governor
or even president.
TAX ON INCOMES
(Continued from page 1)
would entitle them to the gratitude
of the people generally."
Declaring Florida's teachers were
"grossly underpaid," Warren said
at the same time the consumers in
the state were already paying more
than 80 per cent of all state taxes
and "they can't stand an additional
burden of $12,000,000." Rather, he
continued, "it should be paid by I
those who now ai'e paying little, if
any, state taxes."
Should the legislators agree on
the proposed constitutional amend-
ment, it could be submitted to the
people in fairly short order. Instead
of having to wait until the general
election in November of 1952, when
other amendments adopted by the
1951 legislature will be submitted,
this special amendment could be
acted upon at an extraordinary elec-
tion held not less than 90 days nor
more than 100 days after adjourn-
ment of the special session.
