Resident of the Northwest Section
Makes Just Complaint of the
- Blitchton Road

To the Board of County Commission-

.. . ers, Marion County, Florida.
, Gentlemen: Will you please let me

inform you that not until about two
and a half years ago were road funds
provided in our county. That up un until
til until about three years ago the funds
collected from the citizens of Blitch Blitchton
ton Blitchton and community in and around
Blitchton were spent in surfacing
other roads. That the Blitchton road,
a distance of 18 miles, has had only
13 miles surfaced, less by far than
that of any other road in the county.
That much of the Blitchton road is
sand-clay and hardly passable in

1 rainy weather. That the Blitchton

road is the only road in Mr. Cam's
district that is not rocked, it being

sand and clay nearly all the way from

Ocala to Blitchton. That there is

more travel over the Blitchton road
than any other road in the county,

other than the Dixie Highway, and

that the most of the trade coming

into Ocala from outside of the city

comes over the Blitchton road, as can

be shown by the merchants of Ocala

and other business houses of Ocala.
That we annually pay taxes and

therefore assert that to complete our

road would only be treating us just.

That the writer is not the only dis

gruntled Marion county cracker over

here who realizes that our sidetrack

ing is without reason or excuse. That

for 15 years you gentlemen have ig

nored the Blitchton and Flemington

road, not having spent $5 in repairs.

That the repairs on the Blitchton and

Food Conservation

Mrs. W. T. Gary, president of the

pledge cards from the emergency ser

sending them out to the members
Each card is inscribed as follows:

"In view of the pressing military
necessity of conserving the food sup

ply of the nation, I hereby pledge my

self to do my bit as follows:

"I will use only those amounts of
food required for adequate nourish

ment. I will endeavor to control the
waste in all kinds of materials in the
household and to live simply. I will

begin now."
Joke Books

Even the real "little girls of Ocala
are doing their "bit" for the soldier
boys, which was proven by the four
"joke books" which were completed

yesterday, and the others that are be

ing made in the library this morning.

They are all most neatly done. These
little girls sewed four squares of blue
and white striped linen, about the
size of a composition page, intabook
form. On the front and back they
pasted with everlasting "Cico" tiny

American flags around the prettiest

of Saturday Evening Post pictures.
On the six inside pages they pasted

the very latest and cleverest- jokes,

each book containing at least one

('hundred, and some even more. Eight

of these books will be completed by

the first of next week, when they will
