Our -Country Right or Wrong
A SOLDIER IS A CITIZEN
Nearly half of America's 3,500,000 service men
and women "will be denied either the right or
reasonable means of voting" in the presidential
election under existing state laws and regula-
tions, according to National Commander Donald
"L. Wilson of the American Legion. In a per-
sonal letter to the Legion department conm-
mander of each of the 48 states, calling attention
to this "appalling travesty on democratic prin-
ciples" and asking for an analysis and report of
local conditions, he said:
"The American Legion is particularly alarmed
because this group is comprised of Americans
who have already suffered curtailment of many
of their personal liberties, and who are called
upon to risk life itself in defense of the nation's
freedom. I earnestly hope that you will
take the lead in initiating a demand for such ac-
tion-either administrative or legislative-as may
be effected ... in your state."
The editor of The Star, who received a copy
of Commander Wilson's letter as adjutant of the
local Lt-gioi, post, feels reasonably sure that no
legislator in any state, and particularly Florida.,
wishes to deprive an\ soldier, sailor or marine,
male or female, of the duty and privilege of vot-
ing. Where regulations make such absentee vot-
.ing difficult or impossible, they are surely theI
result of inertia or our lack of experience as a
We heartily endorse Commander Wilson s
stand and add our small voice to the plea' for
GI ballots in that "Get Out the Vote" drive _hat
the Legion and most of the rest of us are pushing.
THE AGE OF HEROES IS NOT OVER.
Perhaps, after all, there is some hope for the
democratic institution of representative govern-
ment. After pressing the scalpel deeply into the

PORT ST. JOE GARDEN CLUB
Magic gardens can be grown on
any scale, but just for an example,
try this: Think of an ordinary
double boiler; the top part is the
bed and the lower section the tank.
If you are going to grow plants
with big roots, you need to punch
holes about 1/ to % inch diameter
in the bottom of the upper section;
for such things as herbs and small
flowers, you could use an ice pick
to punch the holes (for the larger
holes, an oyster knife is good). The
holes should be as close together
as possible, making the bottom like
a colander. Then put a thin layer
of wood excelsior over the holes to
keep the sawdust from falling out,
then fill the upper section with
sawdust-and you have your bed.
Four inches of sawdust will grow
most plants. Wet thoroughly with
plain water and plant seeds same
as in soil, though they can be much
'Then with the ice pick, punch
one hole through the side of the
lower section, about an inch below
the bottom of the upper section.
This is to regulate the level of the
liquid, and is very important.
Sprinkle the sawdust with plain
water until the seeds sprout, then
sprinkle once a day with magic
garden plant food solution (or a
hyponex solution may be used). As
the plants grow, their roots will
go down through the holes into the
solution in the lower "tank" sec-
tion, then all you have to do is
keep this full of solution up to the
hole, and sprinkle the plants them-
selves occasionally to keep them
Any seeds which will do well in
this climate will do even better in
this garden, remembering you can
bring the whole thing indoors when
the weather is cold.
This hydrophoiic gardening has
been done successfully in labora-
tories for more than 100 years.
During World War II the U. S.
:L.r:y used it to grow green vege-
tables on the barren rocks of As-
cension Island in the jungles of
British Guiana, and on the volcanic
ash of Iwo Jima. The army is now
using it on a huge scale to grow
healthy, fresh produce for its peo-
ple in Japan.
Try it. If you enjoy growing
things, you'll have loads of fun!

McCarty Says Ed Ball Is
in Ranks of Opponents
Dan McCarty said Monday that
he has been opposed by Ed Ball of
iJacksonville, head of the DuPont
interests in Florida, ever since he
refused to support a state sales tax
measure in 1939.
Ball and 'his crowd came to us
(legislators) and wanted a sales
.tax and I fought it," he said. "That
is one reason why I have the ever-
lasting opposition of Ed Ball."
McCarty again grouped together
Alto Adams, one of his opponents
for governor: Ball, and D. C. Cole-
man of Miami, former Dade county
sheriff and state senator as the
"ABC's of this campaign."
"When I fought the sales tax in
1939, they fought me; they fought
me again in 1948 and they're still
fighting me," continued McCarty.
"The charges they are making
against me today are just as un-
true as they were four years ago,"
he said. "I have made no deals. I
steadfastly refuse to compromise
myself and my desire to be gover-
nor. When this campaign is over I'll
still have my self-respect and you
will have yours."

Snowdrops Flower When the Last Snow Melts.
Tiny Spring Flowers Give
Big Thrill to Gardeners
In selecting spring flowering
bulbs for next spring's garden, the
date of their flowering is as of
much importance as the beauty of
The tiny white snowdrops which
in most gardens will be the very
first flowers of spring, give as
great a thrill as the magnificent
peonies, three months later.
This pleasure may be obtained
by planting a small group of bulbs
where they can be seen from a
window. From such small begin-
ning, in a well planned garden,
floral beauty will unfold as the sea-
son advances, the blossoms in-
creasing in size, number and vari-
ety of color.
To provide this succession the
first three months of spring the
hardy bulbs offer the ea"iest
means, since they require no spe-
cial soil treatment or protection,
and are dependable, in all types of
soil so long as it is well drained.
For beginners they are probably
the easiest of garden subjects to
SAfter. snowdrops come the scillas

and spread. often covering consid-
erable areas with their numerous
blue flowers long before violets, ap-
pear. Chionodoxas are almost as
prolific, with flowers of brighter
blue, some with white centers.
Crocuses, which come next,, are
not so easy to keep with us. They
have white, bl:.:e, yellow and
striped flowers, larger than the ear-
lier bulbs; but never plant them hi
the lawn, as some books advise,
unless you are willing to li' it grow
uncut until the crocus leaves turn
yellow and drop off. If their green
leaves are cut off, the bulbs die.
Better plant them with later peren-
nials whose leaves will hide the
yellowing crocus foliage and allow
the bulbs to mature normally. Even
so, be prepared to replace ha!f
your crocus bulbs each year.
These early bulbs are usually
called the 'minor bulbs." Their
flowers are so small that in June
they would hardly be noticed; ilut
in their own season they have no
rivals for the spotlight, and gar-
dens in which they grow, give two
or three weeks more of gardeiu
beauty to their owners.
The first major flowers of sptrixg-
are, th daffodils, or narcissi, which
blossom after the crocuses.
Tilip.s bggin to fior jfore,the
daffodiis are throtigh. First ther-e
are species tulips, such as' grow
wild in Europe; then the highly
bred early tulips; most popular

The, climax of the bulb season
comes with the tall, late, giant
flowered tulips of the Darwin, Cot-
tage and Breeder types, which
bring to the garden a greater vari-
ety of colors including all the rain-
bow- hues, than any other flower
family can contribute.
