COLORED PEOPLE HONOR
THEIR SELECTED MEN
, The Metropolitan theater was
crowded last night with colored peo
pie, bent on doing honor to the young
men of their race who are to leave
Monday and Tuesday for the training
camp at Camp Devens, Mass.
Dr. R. R. Williams acted as master
of ceremonies., On the platform were
a number of the ministers and lead
ing colored citizens of the town. -The
good will and interest of the white
people was expressed by Mayor Chace
Messrs. J. J. Gerig, Don Mclver and
two members of the Star staff. The
music managed by A. St. George
Richardson, and voiced by a carefully
selected choir of young women and
girls, was inspiring and worth going
a long ways to hear.
The evening passed in listening to
speeches and the music It was a very
impressive occasion, made the more
so by the presence of a number of the
young men who were to .leave next
week. 'v. v
Speeches were made by George Giles
Richardson, Mobley and Butterfiela,
Mayor Chace, Messrs. Gerig, Mclver
and Leavengood. The meeting opened
with prayer by Rev. Pickens and was
closed by singing "Columbia, the Gem
of the Ocean" and prayer by Rev.
Noticeable among the audience were
many women and girls whose insig
nia testified that they were earnest
and diligent in Red Cross work.
The colored selects will leave Mon Monday
day Monday and Tuesday, on the A. C. L.
trains, leaving here at 1:15 p. m. Of
course their own people will give them
a great sendoff, and the Star thinks
that any white person who takes an
interest in anyone of the boys should
be present to bid him godspeed. Some
of their blood will probably be spilled

CARD FROM MR. CLEMENT
It has been brought to the notice of
the writer that there has been a. recent
report in circulation that he has been
guilty of unpatriotic expressions
while discussing the war situation,
even to the point of being pro-German
in his utterances.
If I had been accused of being a
murderer the accusation could not
have been more misplaced, as I believe
I am safe in saying that there has
been no human being on the Ameri American
can American cpntinent that has been a more
constant cusser,of Prussian militar militarism
ism militarism since the summer of 1914 than I
have, and there is no other person in
this country possibly that has less
cause to utter one single intentional
speech detrimental to the welfare of
the country than I.
The writer, as some of my friends
will probably remember, advocated
war the day that the Lusitania was
sunk, and the sending of one million
men across just as soon as possible.
I have responded to. the country's
call for money and at present prob
ably hold more Liberty Bonds than
the average person in this town, or

discussions tht I have taken pleasure
in on tne streets regarding the mom

word in any of them that could be
construed in any way as disloyal to
this country, God knows the writer's
intentions could not have been further
removed from such an act. i

DEFENDS THE SCHOOLS
Editor Star: You surely have it in

he done to you? I fear you did not
come m contact with him enough
when you were a boy up in those fine
old north Georgia hills.
You write so much that I heartily
agree with that I enjoy your editorials
and read every word of them and ac according
cording according to my view you are generally
However, when you essay to stray
off into school matters you generally
get badly lost.
On numerous occasions you have
referred in a severe manner to the
courses of study followed by the
schools. It is possible that we hav
some superfluous material in L our
school curriculum but do you really
think you are qualified to present a
better collection of materials for in information
formation information and mental and moral de development?
velopment? development? These are matters of
growth and are gradually modified, by
those who can do so constructively
and not destructively.
So much for that. But a short while
ago the Star referred to the teachers
as a "privileged class" in attempting
to criticise the course of study. Yes,
indeed, they are a privileged class.
Privileged to put years of hard work
into preparation for training you
children and saving them from ig ignorance
norance ignorance and depravity, privileged to
pass most rigid examinations and

whims and in many cases the unreas unreasonable
onable unreasonable and unreasoning notions of old
America, and all this in many cases at
less compensation than the common commonest
est commonest kind of labor receives. Yes, sir,
they are "privileged."
The latest 'opportunity that has
presented itself upon which you could
harpoon the teacher is the Sears bill
providing for military training for
high school students. I have not read
the bill and am not in position to ex express

Elsewhere our long-time and valued

We ll attend to his case tomorrow.
The question of raising the rates
for electric current is going to come

cause considerable discussion among
'' For the last three years Ocala has
enjoyed the lowest rate for current in
the state outside Jacksonville, and one
of the lowest in the world. The pro
position to raise the rate is going to
be quite unpopular. It is going to be
very unpopular with the Star. We

having to pay a big bill for lights,
and when we look forward to an in increase

it gives us a pain.
At the same time we fully realize
that it is bad business and injustice
to sell current. even to our own citi citizens

doesn't pay expenses, the deficit must
be. made up out of the property own owners

One of the arguments offered for
the present very low rate was that it

in normal times. It is not of much

cheaper than the average town.

has been accused lately of making se seditious
ditious seditious remarks. In a personal inter interview

clares declares that he is as loyal as they
make them, that he has been some somewhat
what somewhat misrepresented and entirely mis

ter, the Star finds that Mr. Clement
has been rather careless in his talk,
and said some things that would have
been all right a few years ago but
are mighty precarious now.. On the
other hand, it has found some of his
close friends who vouch for his loyal
ty. So taking the matter up one side
and down another, we recommend that
Mr. Clement 6n the one hand be more
careful, and our people, on the other,
overlook his carelessness. People who
have sons in the army, particularly
those whose sons are on the fighting
line in France, can't be blamed for
being quick to resent anything that
looks like a reflection either on th
boys or the cause they are fighting
for. The incident has been of service
it will, we hope, rid one of our citi

ingly, been carrying for months; it
may also be a lesson to some of whose

And on the waves of Galilee
On Jordan's stream, and on the rills
That fed the dead and sleeping sea.
Most freshly from the green wood
The light breeze on its scented wings,
And gayly quiver in the sun
The cedar tops of Lebanon!
A few more hours a change hath
-The sky is dark,. without a cloud!
The shouts of wrath and joy are
And proud knees unto death are
A change is on the hill of death,
Helmeted watchers pant for breath,
And, turn with wild and maniac eyes
From the dark scene of sacrifice!
That Sacrifice! the death of Him
The High and ever Holy One!
Well may the conscious heaven grow
And blacken the beholding sun.
The wonted light hath fled away,
Night settles on the middle day,
And earthquake from his cavemed
Is waking with a thrill of dread!
The dead are waking underneath!
Their, prison door is rent va way!
And, ghastly, with the seal of death,
' They wander in the eye of day!
The temple of the cherubim,
The House of God is cold and dim;
A curse is on its trembling walls,
Its mighty veil asunder falls!
Well may the cavern depths of earth
Be shaken, and her mountains nod,
Well may the sheeted dead come forth
To gaze upon a suffering God.
Well may the temple shrine grow
When He, the chosen One of heaven,
A sacrifice for guilt is given.
And shall the sinful heart, alone,
Behold unmoved the atoning hour,
When nature trembles on her throne,
And death resigns his iron nnwer?
O, shall the heart whose sinfulness
uave Keennees to Mis sore distress,
And added to His tears of blood
Refuge its trembling gratitude!

Mary McAllister at the Temple
Beautiful little Mary McAllister,
the favorite of the children of Ocala,
will be seen at the Temple today in
"The Kill-Joy," which, is full of
thrills, humor and pathos. There are
no women in this comedy drama, the
characters are all men with the lit little
tle little actress, Mary. That alone makes
the picture unique. ..
The story opens with the, death of
an easterner who is traveling through
the west in a prairie schooner with
his little daughter, Billie, in. search
of health.. He falls over a cliff while
hunting water. A, citizen of Content Contentment,
ment, Contentment, a little colony of woman-haters
nearby, finds the child. The town's
laws provide hanging as the penalty
for bringing a person of the opposite
sex within its borders.
The kind-hearted Contentmentite,
however, decides to secrete the child
in his shack overnight and ride with
her to the next village at dawn. The
other villagers, suspecting something,
peep through the window and see lit little
tle little Billie's blond hair on the pillow of
one of the bunks. Her face is hidden
and they think she is a woman. A
committee is organized to get a rope,
and the others storm the cabin.
Then is when the thrills start, and the
wild and woolly stuff cuts loose.
In this picture little Mary accom accomplishes

horses hitched to a heavy wagon
along a narrow way, and James Ful Fulton,
