Mr. Rooney voices the sentiment

Mr. Clark's statement that the

Washington, Feb. 9, 11:48 a. m.
Mr. J. D. Rooney, Secretary Board

It looks as if Atlanta will land one
of the regional reserve banks. A
point against Jacksonville is the
number of banks in Florida that
fiave endorsed Atlanta. It's plucky
tbr Jacksonville to make a try for the
2rank, but there is little likelihood of
The alleged letter of Pleasant Holt
published in Dixie brings to light
the unpleasant fact that there is no
provision in the new primary law to
prevent negroes from voting in dem democratic
ocratic democratic primaries.
The law is drawn to fit all parties,
consequently it does not name whites
nor negroes. Ever since the demo democratic
cratic democratic primary has been to existence
it has been understood that it was
for white men only, and no negro has
ever thought of trying to vote in it.
It wouldn't be healthy for a negro to
try to vote in the average country
community, but in the larger cities,
if the officers at the 'polls allow them
to do so, they may vote.
This fault may have been an over oversight
sight oversight of Senator Bryan in drawing
up the law. The state democratic
executive committe'e has not rectified
t. The Star believes it can do so if
it will. A party has a right, of
course, to prescribe who shall be
members of it. The Star sees noth
ing in the law to prevent the state
committee from at once reaffirming
the rule that only white men shall
vote in the primary of what it has
been definitely decided in a white
man's party. Such a rule should be
backed up by the regulation that any
precinct in which negroes are allow
ed to vote should have its vote
thrown out. If such a rule is not
passed, Marion and several other
counties in the state will be republi
can in laib unless the democrats
resort to the old argument of the
shotgun, which they will be almost
sure to do.
Negroes who will vote in a dem
ocratic primary are not good negroes.
Southern men all understand that it
is just as natural for a negro to be a
republican as it is for him to join
the church, and what is more than
that, they understand that a negro
who will vote the democrat ticket is
almost sure to ibe dishonest. A ne negro
gro negro may vote the republican ticket
for a mistaken sentiment, but he is
at least honest in it, and when he
votes the democratic ticket, unless
he votes for some particular reason,
as personal good-will for some white
man, he is almost always doing so
for some base reason generally a
bottle of whiskey or a two-dollar bill.
There are many negroes, and some
white men, who will sell their votes.
If negroes are registering to vote in
the white primary, they are of this
class. They are being hired to reg register
ister register and to vote in order to defeat
white men. If they vote in the gen
eral election at all, they will vote the
republican ticket unless they are
As for the men who are inducing
them to vote, there is hardly lan language
guage language baS enough to describe them.

Uses of Social Centers j
Social center work is occupying j
the attention of many club women.
To have the school house open even-!
ings and after school hours is just
as important in the rural community
as in the congested districts of Chic Chicago
ago Chicago or New fork. The school house
is the natural center for the social
activities of a neighborhood. The
little extra cost in janitor service is
scarcely worth considering when you
remember that social centers pro produce
duce produce good 'citizens. It is far better
economy to prevent crime than to
penalize its consequences. Children
who. have no place which is really
theirs for recreation, necessarily
turn to the crowded street with its
vicious possibilities. The clean,
warm and well lighted school house,
with its little recreation program, is
within the reach of any community
and is a strong rival of the saloon
as a social factor in the neighbor neighborhood.
hood. neighborhood. Mrs. Clarence Burns, an authority
on tenement children, says that
many fatal street accidents would
be prevented if the children could
have school yards and buildings for
play after school hours instead of
being driven to the street directly in
the way of automobile trucks.

The Young Folks on the Farm
All the time taken to write and
discuss the problem of keeping
young people on the farm could be
saved if we would all get busy and
do one simple thing: make the farm
and its life more attrtctive to the
young people. The boy and girl on
the farm have just as much desire
for the joy and fun of life as the boy
and the girl in the city, and if they
can't get them on the farm they will
will go where they can get them.
That is the long and short of the
whole question. The notion that the
boy is going to work on the farm all
day and read how to improve the soil
and double the crops all evening
sounds well, but the boy won't do it.
And the girl is not going to scrub
and wash all day long and go to bed
after her work is done. It is un unnatural.
natural. unnatural. There is absolutely no dif
ference between the natural desires
of boys and girls on the farm and
thoce of other boys and girls. Youth
doesn't want to vegetate, and it will
not stay where ii is expected to do
so. The very nature of the young
crave and demand to move about,
meet other young people and have a
good time. And they are entitled to
it. Let us get this truth into our
heads; introduce healthy social life
into our farming communities and
they won't be so many farmers des destitute

Then, amid the acclamation of their

the king and queen are crowned, at
the greatest social event of the year.
Seven kings and queens have occupied
the Gasparilla throne ever since 1905,
when that feature of the fete was hit
upon by the Gasparilla crew.
On the shoulders of the captain and
that of a number of the "old guard,"
"the inner circle," of Ye Mystic Krewe,
the brunt of the work has fallen. Each
year headquarters are opened and the
plans for the pageant worked out to

one of a dozen of whose smaller bays

Music to Lure Fish.
Two Pennsylvania disciples of Izaak
Walton have Just invented a musi musical
cal musical minnow for bass fishing. The new
device Is described as a wooden min minnow,

of a pretty girl. In front of the face
Is a miniature electric light, the pow power

which hangs on the under side.
The minnow is painted red, and
within it is a tiny musical box, the

fisherman before he casts his line.
The Inventors say they adopted the
idea because they have found while
fishing that bass are attracted by the

and empty it means he lacks feeling.
Beware of a greedy man. It will be a
case of 'feed the brute' all the time.
