A day or two ago Congressman
PronV f!irV in n snop in th.
House, replied, vigorously to attacks Pedrick, and a son, who will sorely
which had been made on his attitude miss her- The remains will pass thru
towards various war measures. Ini0cala today on the Coast Line train,
answering them he said:
"There is being circulated through
out the district which I have the hon-
or to renresent on this floor a circu-'the
lar which crosslv misrepresents the
lar which grossly misrepresents the;
position I took and x the remarks 1
made on what is commonly known as
the selective draft bill. I did oppose
both in speech' and by vote what was
known as the Kahn amendment, which
amendment provided for the conscrip
tion of the young men of America in
order to raise an army for the pres-1
ent war. I took the position that the
volunteer plan oi raising an armyi
was the traditional, time-honored
American plan, and as volunteers had
fought all the battles of the republic
and had fought them successfully, "i
saw no reason why we should at this
late day repudiate that plan.
"In taking this position, I followed
the lead of such democrats as Champ
Clark, that great democrat who is
with such ability filling the office of
speaker of the House of Representa Representa-w
w Representa-w tives, and that other brilliant demo demo-r
r demo-r cratic leader, Claude Kitchin, who
I honors the position, of democratic
leader on the floor of the House of
Representatives. Those who support supported
ed supported the draft system under the lead of
that great republican from California,
Hon. Julius Kahn, said that they were
opposed to the volunteer plan because
under its operation the brave, patri patriotic
otic patriotic young men who were in active
business of one' kind and another
would volunteer, "while the loafer, the
tramp, te bum, the poolroom habitue'
and others of that kind would not vol
unteer, and would therefore escape
military service; that they favored
the draft system because under it we
would force all the loafers, ragamuf ragamuffins,
fins, ragamuffins, bums, poolroom habitues and
their kind into the army to fight the
battles of the country and leave at
home the young men who were doing
something for the general good and
who were worth while. They argued
that under the draft system the
would leave the farmer, the mine mine-worker,
worker, mine-worker, the mechanic and so forth at
home, while they would force this
loafing class -into the army.
"In my remarks I ridiculed the idea
if that we wanted an army of loafersj,
j ragamuffins, bums and that class to
fight the battles of America, and a
reading of the reniarks I made will
show that my reference to this class
was purely in that sense. Any state state-V"Ofjnent

remains were laid to rest at Crystal

one of the three Barco brothers, all

Marion county. He made his home

and growth of that little town. A few
years ago, he removed to Gainesville.
Colonel Barco had lived past his
three-score and ten, but until a few
weeks ago several years more of use usefulness
fulness usefulness and honor seemed assured:
him. He was a frequent and welcome
visitor to Ocala during the last half
century and his friends in this city
were numbered by those who knew
him. He was a special friend to the
Star. When the president of the
Star Publishing Company came to
this part of Florida, a mere boy, al
most two-score years aero, his hrst
night in this region was spent in Col
onel Barco's home, and the good old
colonel and his children were ever
after prized friends. Colonel Barco's
children, his erandchildren. and tht.

brothers are filling honored homes and

A DOLLAR WASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be" another man's
economy. In a general way, waste in war time may be defined as the
buying of anything not essential to health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,
vices, services, that is, labor and materials, needed by the United States Gov Government
ernment Government for war purposes. Ani, if you invest the money you save
in War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon money
ey money to your Government.
