Secretary Rooney Writes of What is
Going On in the Capital City
Tallahassee, April 13. Much is and
has been accomplished along many
lines. First found confronting our
representatives was this county divis- j
ion --matter, and both of them have
been right on the job working with
the members of both the House and
Serate to get them lined up to stand
with them against the bill and I feel
sure that the work they have done will
defeat the bill. I feel almost confident
it will not come from the committee
unless they go back on their promises.
Just as soon as they found out the
measure that was being made, they
began a campaign to overcome it.
I have talked writh almost all the
members in reference to our bill
creating the marketing commissioner,
and hope for favorable consideration
of this measure by both houses. It
has the endorsement of both the gov governor
ernor governor and commissioner of agricul agriculture,
ture, agriculture, and they have promised to go
before the committees from both
House and Senate and stand with me
for its passage. Mr. Light is here
bringing his influence to bear, and it
is having its effect; also Mr. Haile,
superintendent of the express com company,
pany, company, is here lending us every assist assistance
ance assistance possible, and in conference with
him today he stated that the market
ing bureau at Jacksonville since Mr.
Hewitt has been made secretary-manager
i3 moving along smoothly, that
he was getting business and the
prices were very satisfactory to the
patrons. WTien this bill is passed and
state aid given, the farmers will no
longer hesitate, but join in the great
forward movement. A number have
stated that when they return home
they will arrange meetings and see
that their people understand what the
system means to their farmers and
get them lined up to handle their
produce through the bureau. Thus it
moves on and on.
Last evening I was specially in
vited by Mr. Wartmann to attend the
exercises at the Woman's College and
witness the graduation recital of the
two young ladies, Misses Irma Blake
and Constance Helen Cavell. To have
been present and heard as well as
witnessed this program in its entirety.

Ocala. How proud we should be of
this girl of our city and ner talent.
It was an inspiration to attend, and
if every mother' in our grand old
county could have been present (yea
from all over the state) I believe
their hearts would have so thrilled
and that there would have been such
convincing proof of the merit and
true worth of our most excellent col college,

Florida's fair daughters leaving their
own state and fine college to seek
those of other states. These two
girls are a living and lasting example
of what this institution can produce.

solution for the problem.

It appears to the writer that this is
a very opportune time for the consid consideration

law by our council. The seemingly
growing criminal trend of some of our
boys is quite alarming. The violations
committed by certain white boys un under
der under the age of seventeen years within
the past few weeks within the bound boundary
ary boundary of our little city is enough to de
mand the attention of a council of the
character of ours. Lets see ii we
cannot have a law requiring all boys
under the age of seventeen to be off
the streets at home after 9 o'clock in
the evenings (off business as well as as-residential
residential as-residential streets). The boys in a
large number of instances are left to
wander at will, and just as long as
that condition exists, some mother's
fcon is going to be a link in the chain
of guilty ones before our courts and
in our reform school. It seems that
the potential influence of the mother
cannot longer cope with the snares of
the street if the latter has full sway,
and perhaps a law with suitable pen penalties
alties penalties would assist and stimulate a
little moral persuasion and love of
home, and I for one hope that the
council will help give these younger
boys a chance to preserve the char character
acter character that is their birthright. Isn't
the future of the young manhood of
Ocala as a unit worth the trial?
Won't the Woman's Club, our citizens
and other societies endorse it?

May parties ha ve become attractive
features of the civic life in many
Floridav cities. Tampa holds an elab
orate celebration of May day each
year and for many years the May day
celebrations at Tallahassee have been
a distinctive feature of the social life
of the capital. In Lewis Park, Talla Tallahassee,
hassee, Tallahassee, which is maintained as a" play playground
ground playground for children, year after year,
as far back as "the memory of man
runneth not to the contrary," there
have been May parties. On May day
there all places of business close for
the afternoon and if the legislature
happens to be in session, both houses
adjourn and the entire' population
turns out en masse for the May party.
A great friendly old oak, bravely
garlanded about its trunk, forms a
delightful. background for the throne,
where each season some pretty, girl is
crowned queen, and maid and courtier,
fairy and clown flash and flit through
the changing scene. Bright ribbons
are woven in and out and gay childish
figures dance about the May poles,
while the interested spectators chat
in friendly groups in every available
spot. The music, the color, the gay
and pleasing pageant make a welcome
break in the life there, and often
when the life is tensest. Ocala needs
a more common interest in her civic
life. We are too individual in our
interests, in our pleasures. The May
party will afford an opportunity for u'
all to enjoy a holiday together.
The Woman's Sacrifice

heroic work of nurses who are on

war and its terrible consequences can

The women everywhere are helping
and everywhere one sees self-sacrifice
and devotion to country.
The women of the United States do
not know how fortunate they are.
Here there are plenty of women who
suffer in silence, whose strength is
out of proportion to their ambition.
Their hands are tied by some chronic
disease common to womankind; that
weak back, accompanied by pain here
or there, extreme nervousness, sleep sleeplessness,
lessness, sleeplessness, maybe fainting spells or
spasms, are all signals of distress for

girlhood into womanhood, passing
from womanhood to motherhood, and

which leaves so many wrecks of
