would be a better place for these boys

wired three or four places as to this
proposal." It has not been definitely
settled that the camp will be located
in Florida, but I am quite sure that
it will be, and I believe that if Ocala
will get into this contest properly, she
stands a fair chance to win out."
Mr. Bryan Mack, an attache of one
of the state departments he being
secretary of the board of control and
state plant board is correspondent of
several newspapers. It seems to be
his special delight to call attention to
a certain error that is said to have
been made in the senate journal oi
1913, in recording the vote by which
the tax commission bill passed. At
that time there was in' the Appleyard
print shop a party as foreman who is
not now, connected with it, but who is
at present- a clerk in the state audi auditor's
tor's auditor's office. It was his duty to see that
such errors as the one complained of
were not made. He drew his salary
regularly each Saturday because he
was thought to be competent and able
to discover, and keep out just such an
error as it is claimed :tvas made. But
it was after discovered that most of
his time was taken up in attempting
to lobby a bill through the legislature
providing- for a state-owned printing
plant, and this probably prevented his
giving that attention to duties he
was paid to perform. A repetition of
these performances cost him his po
sition in 1915. Just why Mr. Mack
continues to "nag" at this establish establishment

that no clerk in any of the depart departments

never be absolutely accurate, because
at some time they might be so colored
as to place the writer in the "person "person-airy

lose a good job, one way or the other.
Gov. Catts should see to it that Mr.
Mack, as a state employee, quits
writing for the press. Mack is an
efficient newspaper man, and he may
be an efficient secretary, tho the Star
has heard that his present job is a
sinecure, and he certainly hasn't
much to do, or he wouldn't have time
to act as a newspaper correspondent.
His letters are always in favor of the
state administration and are natural naturally

Sister Susie Should Knit Socks and
Sweaters for the Soldiers
Girls, in knitting socks for the sol-
ciers, wn en ever you arop a suicn you
must go back and pick it up. They do
not wear the dropstitch kind. Waxa
hachie, Tex- Light.
Oh, the soldiers wear any kind of
socks they can get. Sometimes they
even wear soiled ones, especially after
they have spent a few nights and
days squashing around in muddy
trenches. An English soldier was
quoted not long ago as saying his
personal wants had been reduced t&
the lowest possible terms something
to smoke, something to eat and a
pair of dry socks occasionally. He
emphasized the socks item, declaring
that nothing could take the place of
a couple of comfortable feet in trench
work; and without comfortable socks
comfortable feet are impossible. It
behooves our girls therefore to tend
to their knitting. The store-bought
socks, even if they were always avail
able, are poor substitutes for the
thick, warm, gracious, home-knitted
hose. The same is true of the heavy
and durable sweaters, scarfs and hel
mets. Imagine yourself standing sen
try on a cold, rainy, muddy night,
with your feet set in thin shabby,
mill-run socks, your body encased in
a slazy, cottony, open-faced sweater
and your face and neck protected by
a bargain-counter helmet wouldn't
you feel rather hard at your women
folks back home who had failed ,to
provide you with heavy and service serviceable
able serviceable woolens? There are 30,000,000
women and girls in America of knit knitting
ting knitting age. Are there any slackers
among them? Are there any among
them who are saying to themselves,
