Our Country Right or Wrong
A BIT OVER-ZEALOUS
Fuller Warren has tried to be a good governor.
We stick to this belief even though we have felt
on many occasions that some of his acts and poli-
cies deserved criticism. The governor has stayed
in hot water through most of his administration.
One of the reasons, we feel certain, is that War-
ren sometimes tries to be not merely a good gov-
ernor, but a too-good governor.
His liberal use of the veto is an example. War-
ren killed the legislature's act that would have
opened welfare rolls, declaring he thought it
would have been unconstitutional. He vetoed the
bill forbidding the publication of racing informa-
tion for the same reason, even after Attorney
General Ervin pointed out that the supreme
court would strike out any of this law that vio-
lated the constitution. The story was the same
on the bill that would have cut off funds from
the universities if they were opened to both
races. This Warren pronounced unconstitutional.
Warren's vetoes, like so many other actions of
his, were perfectly legal, but in questionable
taste. It has always been our idea that the gov-
ernor's job was administrative in nature, and
that matters of judicial note were to come be-
fore the supreme court. Seven judges are paid
handsome salaries to sit in Tallahassee and de-
cide, among other things, if laws enacted by the
legislature are constitutional.
It would seem reasonable, then, for the gover-
nor to let a bill become law if he has nothing
against,it other than a personal opinion that it
is unconstitutional. As we said, we don't think
Governor Warren had any base motives in tak-
ing over part of the supreme court's functions.
We just think he's a bit over-zealous in trying to
be a good governor.-Washington County News,

Hendrix, in his talk, opposed the
present welfare setup, old age pen-

His opposition to the welfare set-
up was the use of state funds for
the support of illegitimate children.
Old people, he said, upon reaching
65 should .be classed as retired citi-
zens rather than being termed "on
welfare." He denounced the sales
tax as unjust and said it should be
done away with. He proposed that
the state should control all liquor
sales, claiming it would raise more
revenue than the sales tax. Flatly
denouncing racial school consolida-
tion, Hendrix said that if he were
to be elected governor that white
and colored children will never
have to attend school together.

Measles Can Be
Parents Are Warned Not To Look
Upon Rash As A 'Necessary'
Measles was at one time con-
sidered a "necessary' childhood
disease-as inevitable as a child's
first tooth or his first steps. Some
mothers would actually expose their
little ones to the illness, and others
did nothing to keep their youngsters
away from children who had the
contagious disease because it was
considered a relief to have measles
"over and done with."
The majority of parents today
realize that although a common
childhood disease, measles can be
a very serious one-mainly because
of the grave complications which
can follow it. Actually, doctors
warn that the likelihood of com-
plications is high with children
under two years of age who con-
tract measles. These complications
can mean permanent injury to a
child's respiratory system.
Moreover, far from being a "light"
illness measles can reduce a child's
body resistance so low that he is
an easy prey to .broncho-pneumonia,
mastoid and ear infections and
Measles may occur at any time
of the year but the disease seems
to reach epidemic proportions most
frequently in February and March.
The disease, caused by a tiny virus,
is spread easily from person to per-
son through direct contact. The
virus is carried by the droplets
of moisture sprayed in the air when
the victim of measles sneezes,
coughs, or even as he laughs and
talks. There is no specific preven-
tive against measles although re-
cently there has been in use a
discovery which can lessen the
possibility of grave complications
from the disease. It, is a serum
known as "globulin," developed
from blood or blood plasma.
The symptoms of measles are
similar to those of a cold, with the
victim suffering from sneezing,
a cough, a running nose, and some-
times a slight fever. The tell-tale
red spots appear first inside the
mouth, where they are known ar
Koplik spots, then on the face,
neck, and chest, and spread rapidly
to the rest of the body.
The mother who-knows that her
child has been exposed to measles
or is getting the disease should
put him to bed and call the doctor
at once. If the child has the dis-
ease, prompt medical care may
enable him to ward off possible
Although measles can be serious
for any child or adult who con-
tracts it, special measures should
be. taken to protect the child be-
tween six months and two years
of age. After six months, the baby
loses his "birth immunity" to
measles and may be vulnerable to

lightly or neglected. Without pro-
per and prompt medical care the

for Mailing Packages
To Persons Abroad
Gulf Countians Cautioned To Fol-
low New Instructions Before
Gulf countians who plan to mail
-packages to persons abroad would
do well to stop, look and listen be-
fore doing so, because there are
now some new federal government
regulations on the subject.
According to information received
by The Star from the U. S. Depart-
ment of Commerce in Atlanta, the
postoffice in Port St. Joe will not
accept such packages except under
the following conditions:
If shipment of the package is pro-
hibited without a validated export
license, such a license must be pre-
sented to the postoffice clerk with
the package at the time of mailing.
If shipment without a license
is permitted, the words "Gift-Ex-
port License Not Required" must
be placed on the address side of
the wrapper and the word "Gift"
on the customs declaration.
The reason for this is that the
department of commerce's office
of international trade and the post-
office department are co-operating
to plug possible loopholes by which
intentional violators of the govern-
ment's export control regulations
are violating such regulations. Only
shipments to Canada are excepted.
The majority of shipments by
mail, both air and surface, do not
require an export license because
they come within the category of
gift parcels that do not exceed $25
in value. Such shipments are per-
mitted without license to all coun-
tries except China and North Korea.
Nevertheless, from now on the mail-
ers of such packages must mark

SThe office was advanced to the
second class in 1939 and the old
wooden building torn away and the
present building constructed and
leased from the Masonic Lodge.
Mr. Drake claims no credit for
the postal education plan advanced
in 1942 by the late J. D. Beggs, Or-
lando postmaster, ibut points out that
A the same idea was quoted by him
in the April 8, 1938, issue of The
Star as believing much improve-
ment in the postal service could be
accomplished by teaching some of
its essentials in the public schools
of the nation. The retiring postmas-
ter has received special citations
from postal officials for the effici-
ency attained by him..
"I am very grateful to both pa-
trons and office personnel for their
co-operation throughout my years
of service," said Drake, adding that
he hap had many unusual, interest-
ing and pleasant experiences in
serving the public.
i Mr. Drake is *a member of the
SNational Association of Postmas-
ters, county director of the Florida
Chapter, and a former vice-presi-
dent of the West Florida Associa-
tion of Postmasters.

Small Fire At Highland View
The St. Joe fire department was
called to Higland View Wednes-
day afternoon when the home of H.
G. Parker caught fire, apparently
from a cigaret. Mrs. Parker dis-
covered the fire and managed to
get it under control before arrival
of the fire truck. A mattress and
some bedclothes were destroyed, a
small hole burned in the floor of
the bedroom and the walls black-
ened from smoke.
Stalls for Cows
Improper stabling ,and lack of
good bedding are the most common
causes of teat injuries in cows.
talls should be wide enough and
long enough for the cow to recline
and get up without bruising or other-
wise injuring the teats and udder.
Similarly, bedding should cover the
stall floor completely so as to give
the udder a thick, protective cush-
ion. A generous supply of good bed-
ding, such as straw or other ma-
terial, also helps to protect the ud-
der against chilling.

"curious proposition," a nd again
postponed a conference with school
leaders to discuss the increase.
Gay had stated that he believed
there would be enough money to
give teachers a $300-a-year pay in-
crease by adjusting and holding
back on other general appropria-
tions. He proposed a three-hour spe-
cial legislative session to do no
more that appropriate the money
for the pay raise and let the cabi-
net budget commission work it out
over the next two years.
Through his press secretary, the
governor expressed the hope that
"the school teachers are not being
kidded, fooled and disillusioned by
this curious proposition of Comp-
troller Gay's to pay them a $9,000,-
000 salary increase out of a $3,500,-
Warren's attitude, coupled with
a mixed recation from legislators
toward the Gay plan, are not very
encouraging for prospects of an ex-
tra legislative session to give the
teachers a pay raise.
Due to a rush of last-minute news
