BUFORD'S OPINION ON
SCHOOL TRANSPORTATION
In regard to paying regular auto
hire license on motor busses, convey conveying
ing conveying school children to and from
school, Attorney General Buford has
written the following to Representa Representative
tive Representative Hunter of Marion county:
Tallahassee January 7.
Mr. C. W. Hunter, Ocala, Fla.:
My dear Mr. Hunter: Pursuant to
your letter of Jan. 2nd, I have had a
talk with Mr. Ernest Amos, comp comptroller,
troller, comptroller, and Mr. R. A. Gray, chief
clerk in the automobile license depart department
ment department of the comptroller's office, with
reference to the attitude which will be
assumed by such department as to li licenses
censes licenses on school busses.
The result is that we have arrived
at the conclusion that an automobile
bus, operated exclusively for the pur purpose
pose purpose of transporting children to and
from public schools, is not to be con construed
strued construed as being a motor vehicle for
hire. I am sure it was not the intent
of the legislature that such vehicles
should be considered as automobiles
for hire, and that the term "for hire"
was intended to cover those vehicles
which are held out to the use of the
general public for hire and fare.
The operators pf the busses which
are used exclusively for transporting
children to and from public schools,
however, must not use these vehicles
for the transportation of other per persons
sons persons for hire, and should they do so
they will not only be liable for the
license but will also be liable for
prosecution for operating such vehicle
for hire without a license.
I think that you will receive a com
munication from the comptroller stat
ing that the busses employed by your
county school board under a contract
as has been submitted to me will be
issued licenses based upon weight and
will not be required to pay the addi additional
tional additional cost upon licenses of motor ve vehicles
hicles vehicles for hire.
Yours very truly,
Rivers H. Buford,
Attorney General.

BANQUET FOR THE
VISITING LEG ION AIRES
The Marion County Post of the
American Legion was host Monday
evening at the armory at a banquet,
honoring the legionaires from all over
the state who are meeting in execu executive
tive executive session in Ocala.
The lower floor of the armory was
converted into a banquet hall, seven
long tables being arranged in a V V-snape
snape V-snape With two tables running from
thfc apex of the V, down the venter.
Poinsettias were used in quantities as
decorations, the glowing red of the
blossoms intermingled with feathery
aspaargus fern. In the center of each
table was a large poinsettia head and
running from this down the center of
the table to both ends were streamers
of fern with here and there one of
ihe gorgeous blossoms. The outer
edge of the platform at the end of the
room was also banked with the same
flowers and fern and at each place was
a sprig of holly as a buttoniere. J
At seven o'clock the doors were
thrown open and the hosts and their
guests took their places at the tables,
the table at the center of the apex
being occupied by the master of cere ceremonies,
monies, ceremonies, Rev. J. J. Neighbour, post
chaplain, and officers of the local post.
A number of the members of the
Woman's Auxiliary to the American
Legion were invited, besides several
of the townspeople.
Arrangements had been made for
serving 225 guests and all of the seats
were filled and a goodly lot of men
were these heroes of the world war
who assembled here in special conven convention

those already made that their legion
might be one of the strongest organ organizations

in, all in civics, with faces happy with
enjoyment of the occasion, and yet
stamped with what only those that
have passed through it may realize,
some still bearing physical signs of
the ravages of war, now and then an
interested spectator, of which there
were many, would hear a word from
a passing guest that they had heard
of so-and-so, a major this or a ser sergeant
geant sergeant or just one of the rank ana file
who they had known "over there," or
in camp in this country, and who they
had heard from. Truly, it is good to
be a buddy of one of these staunch
Americans.
A delicious banquet had been pre prepared

was served by attractive French
maids. The menu consisted of chick chicken

MR. FORT'S MISTAKE

Editor Star: This is not a criticism
of your article, suggesting that the
county commissioners employ a road
engineer. You make some good points,
but you are in error when you say
there are about 200 miles of public
highways in the county. The facts are
there are more than 200 miles in the
fourth commissioner's district, and
certainly not less than 600 miles in
the county. Now under your plan of
the one crew system, all would be cen centralized
tralized centralized at one point for a given time,
say that twelve months be equally di divided
vided divided among the five commissioner
districts. It seems reas nable to say
that this one crew could not construct
more than 25 miles of road in a year.
Under your proposed system, 575
miles of road wouldn't get anything,
not even the slightest repairs. In the
fourth district alone there are more
than 200 bridges and culverts. Under
your ?system what would become of

these? No, Mr. Editor, your one crew
system will not work. This is saying
nothing derogatory to a county engi engineer,
neer, engineer, but you must remember that in
almost every case where other coun counties
ties counties are constructing highways under
the supervision of an engineer, the
county has bonded for that purpose,
and in most cases these highways are
built under contract. Certainly you
would not recommend this mode of
construction, having only the pitiful
sum that is provided in -the annual
road budget. Those counties which
have built a system of public high highways
ways highways have bonded again and again to
do it, and only have built the most
important lines, and their lateral
roads (of which we have so many in
Marion county) practically get noth nothing.
ing. nothing. If Marion county ever expects to
take her place along side her sister
counties in road building she must do
as they have done, bond and re-bond,
almost without end. In that case, an
engineer is absolutely essential and
more, we must get down to the con concrete
crete concrete built roads which will stand the
ever increasing traffic, and have a
maintenance fund ready. Then, and
not until then, have we done some something.
thing. something. N. A. Fort.
Mr. Fort errs in thinking that the
Star, because it favors a county road
department under an engineer, also
favors a castiron system of keeping
the said crew in one place for a stated
time, no matter what the need might
be in other places. That would be no
business at all. A concentrated road
.department would be like an army it
could send detachments or even shift
' its entire force to a threatened point,
much more quickly and effectually
from one base than from five. That
is the system followed in some of the
leading counties of Florida and in
counties all over the United States.
At present, the county has two con convict
vict convict gangs, numbering twenty odd
men, and from thirty to fifty free men
working in small parties. In some re respects,
spects, respects, each small party equals in ex expense

trated. concentrated. The convicts are now work working
ing working in two places. If they worked in
one, and then in the other, they would
do the same work in less time, or
more work in the same time. The
same way with the free labor. It
should be all together, finish one place
and go on to another. In cases of
emergency work, like a washout on a
road, or a broken or burned bridge, a
sufficient detachment should be sent
to it.
Mr. Fort is correct about the lateral
roads. They are the veins of county
transportation, while the highways
are the arteries. And they will never
become good roads as long as they
are worked on only by small parties.
They should be rebuilt, each in its

turn, by the largest force the county
can put bn them. J
Big f&ad or little road, twenty or
thirty men working on it at once will;

more work in proportion than a fourth j

places, it takes four trucks or four

tion. proportion. It has frequently happened in
this county that a road crew has con-;
sisted of one overser, one or two men
to haul material in a two-mule wagon,
or sometimes a motor truck, one cook
and one or two or three men to do the
road work. And this has gone on
sometimes in three or four parts of
the county at the same time. When
you consider one overseer, two teams
or one motor truck, and two cooks
would have been enough for the entire
force, and that a dozen men working
in one place can do two or three times
as much work as the same number
working in four places, you can begin
to estimate what a disproportionate
and unnecessary burden has been laid
on the tax payers for years.
One reason for working the roads
by districts has been the desire of
each commissioner to spend as much

county money as possible in his own
district. The great drawback to this
is that only a few men in each district

receive this money, while all have to
pay taxes. Also, if the concentration
plan is adopted, money will be spent

in a district for the whole county at
one time, instead of being dribbled

into five districts. Of course, gasoline

and oil for the county machinery will

have to be bought at a central point,
but farmers out in the country can't
expect the county to buy feed for
mules when motor trucks cost so
much less in proportion to the work
done.
There is no use in talking, if we are
to have uptodate roads we must have
uptodate methods, and in uptodate
methods, concentration is among the
first.

(New York Tribune)
France is not getting fair play in
our press. A distinguished French Frenchman
man Frenchman who made an extensive trip in
this country recently writes me that
in the press of our large cities he
found syndicated Articles written by
British publicists in which France's
position was misrepresented. This
campaign received fresh impetus from
the speech of Lord Lee of Fareham
last Friday and from the British
statement yesterday.
The British policy at Washington
has been to force France to acecpt the
status of a third rate naval power,
although France as a colonial power is
second only to Great Britain and
France's requirements for naval de defense
fense defense fully equal those of the United
States.
Why does Great Britain object to

French naval equality with Japan
The only possible reason would be
fear' that France would join to make
an anti-British naval combination
with the United States, or that Great
Britain wishes France to be entirely at
her mercy as a naval power. Either
reason is entirely unsound.
I hope the day will come when by
agreement among- Great Britain,
France and the United" States both
their naval and their military power
will be trusteed for the maintenance
of world peace. Until that day comes
each nation is the best judge of its
own naval requirements, and, it is ab absurd
surd absurd to contend that France threatens
any one by asking in effect for naval
equality with Japan.

Breathing Space.
The modern ideas of education are
all very well as far as they go, but
there is an old and well-tried proverb
which says that a little knowledge is
a dangerous thing. Perhaps that is
why Johnny Jones's essay on air ran
like this:
"Breath is made of air. We breathe
always with our luiiiis. except ar night,
when our breath keeps life going
through our poses while we are asleep.
If it wasn't for our breath we should
die whenever we slept.
"Boys that stay in a room all day
should not breathe. They should wait
until they get outdoors. A lot of boys
staying in a room make carbonicide.
and carbonicide is more poisonous
than mad dogs, though not just in
the same way. It does not bite, but
that's no matter so long as It kills
you.

SNOW PENITENTS OF ANDES

which no human beings can dwell, the
so-called Snow Penitents assemble.
The traveler comes unexiectedly

they have the appearance of a crowd
of hooded monks, all in white and

markable remarkable illusion, for the "monks" are
not human at all. nor alive. Each one
of them is. a block of snow and ice.
One theory of this phenomenon is that
the fallen snow may be of uneven
density and that the powerful rays of
:ui overhead sun first melt those parts
of it around the denser spots, leaving
the latter still frozen, to. assume the
form of snow men.
As the snow continues to melt, water
trickling down from the blocks may
help to deepen the surrounding hol hollows,
