MIGHTY GOOD PLACE
FOR YOUNG MEN
Dear Sir or Madam:
Many fathers and mothers object
to the enlistment of their sons in the
U. S. Navy for the reason that they
have a mistaken idea as to the kind
of men who are in .the service or wht,
are entering the service. Many par parents
ents parents believe that the influence to
which their sons would be subjected
in the Navy and the character of
the young men with whom their sons
would, associate in the Navy are not
good. Such an idea as this is entirely
wrong, and a conversation with any
of the men of the Navy, at any of
the recruiting offiices, or with any
man who has served in the Navy and
received an HONORABLE discharge
from the Navy would' convince any
parent as to the excellent character
of the 'men in the Navyand also as
to the splendid training which their
sons would receive in the Navy.
A good many parents think also
that the offiicers and men of the re recruiting
cruiting recruiting service are secretly trying to
get young men away from their
homes and their parents without the
knowledge or consent of the parents.
Therefore, when advertising matter
concerning the Navy is sent to their
sons the parents often destroy it or
return the leter unopened. The laws
of the country and the regulations
of the recruiting service forbid the
enlistment of any boy under eighteen
years of age without the consent of
his parents, or guardian, and it is not
the wish of the Navy Department to
enlist any yound man without the full
knowledge and consent7of his parents.
The Navy offers many advantages
to a young man in the way of train training,
ing, training, education, pay ond advancement,
and the influences by which a young
man in the Navy is surrounded
the character of the men with whon.
he associates are better by far than
the average outside. In nearly every
case where it is possible to have these
! advantages fully explained to a par parent
ent parent by. one of the men of the recruit recruit-j
j recruit-j ing party, the opinion and attitude of
jthe parents are changed and consent
' is given to the enlistment of their
son. The officers and men at the re
cruiting stations are always pleased
to give a parent full information
about the Navy either directly in per-
j son or by letter. Therefore, if letters
j are sent to your son from a recruiting
! office, please do not think that any
I one wishes to induce your son to
(leave home and join the Navy with with-I
I with-I out your knowledge or consent. A
i letter is sent to a young man because
his name and address has been sent
I to the Publicity Bureau with a re request
quest request that information concerning the
Navy be sent to him.
If yon do not wish to have the idea
of entering the Navy put into your
son's head, all you have to do is write
and request that no letters be sent to
him, but before doing this, it is re requested
quested requested that you learn just what the
Navy has to offer him and just how
much he can help himself and help
you by going into the Navy.
It is not believed that any parent
can justly say that his son, after
serving in the Navy, was not better
to make a living and perform the
duties of a good citizen than before
joining the Navy. If you hear any
unfavorable criticism of the United
States Navy from any man who has
served in the Navy, you will find, on
investigation, that this man did not
get an HONORABLE discharge from
the Navy, but is, in nine out of ten

ine work in this district, was m the
citv todav. It is his second visit to
Ocala. and he took advantage of the
occasion to call on the Star and thank
it for the crood work it has done in
helDine the navy to secure recruits
Lieut. Atkinson says that the teach
ers, professors, college presidents,
etc., who are so strenuously trying to
keen youne men from enlisting in the
navy, and quoting President Wilson,
Secretary Daniels and others, seem to
understand only half the matter in
question. While it is true that the gov-.
ernment wants young men m school
to ero on with their studies, it also
wants as many of them as possible,
Darticularlv hisrh school and college
students, to enlist for the course oi
summer training. When their schools
reopen in the autumn, they can go
back to their studies, greatly benefit
ed both mentally and physically, and
at the same time all the more ready
to serve if the country needs them.
Lieut. Atkinson doesn't suppose that
the teachers want to keep the boys out
of service if they are really needed.
They should understand that between
18 and 21 years is the best age lor a
voune man to learn in the navy, as in
any other school, and not try to hold
back any young man who thinks that
right now seamanship is the highest
knowledge he can acquire.

naval training camp in Charleston:

Mr. and Mrs. George MacKay have
a heavy load of sorrow to bear, in the
loss of their eldest son, George JL,
MacKay. Their trouble is added ,to
by uncertainty in regard to his fate
Thev have the great comfort that ev
ery report that has come to them goes
to prove that he acted like a true
American and won the praise of all
his comrades. No higher testimony
could be given him than the, brief and
simple reports of the veteran French
soldiers who fought by his side.
There is yet a faint hope that the
brave boy is alive, tho' a prisoner, and
his friends' will not give him up until
Letters from Sergeant George
Werizel to friends in Ocala indicate
that George has been having- a stren strenuous
uous strenuous time in France. He has been
given a few days leave in "blighty,"
to rest up. He was in the historic old
English city of Winchester when the
letter was written. The only thing
George has to complain of is that his
sugar ration is short, and he makes
up for that by thinking about his girl
friends in Ocala.
Mr. and Mrs. IT. B. Clarkson have
received the news that their eldest
son, Robert, now in the navy, has been
promoted to the r grade of ensign,
which corresponds to that of second
lieutenant in the army. Robert has
been in the navy less than a year,
went in as an ordinary seaman and
has won his promotion entirely by
merit. He is one of Ocala's best and
brightest boys; all the town are his
friends, and they rejoice with his rela relatives

only had to do seven or eight hours
work a day. Edward said the depot

, Editor Star: I regret very much
the apparent necessity for some one
to remark upon the unfortunate
editorial reference in Saturday's Star
to the commencement address of
It is said that it has caused con considerable
siderable considerable comment." If this is the
case it is a hopeful sign for Ocala
for it was unquestionably one of the
wisest and most patriotic addresses
ever heard here. It was as if one
were getting the matter from the
fountain head and I have not heard
one single adverse remark with refer
ence to it.
It was carefuly prepared for a dig
nified occasion and the class, the
school, the city and the county were
honored in having him as its guest
and his great address for food. It
was not prepared for the purpose
of entertaining the frivolous, not
appalling to the sense of excitability
but for the purpose of presenting a
sane and sensible view of the neces
sities of American life to a sensible
In his contention that the best
and most patriotic action that a boy
who is in school and doing well and
being well taught and going ahead
can take, is to continue in school until
he gets all there is for him, unless he
is called ; by his government, he is j
squarely in line with the. best thought
from the president down.
At the meeting of the state educa educational
tional educational association at Daytona those
who were there will well remember
the advice given by Dr. P. P. Clax-
ton, the National Commissioner of
Education, who is probably as close
personally and politically to President
Wilson as any man in the country,
that the most patriotic thing a
teacher could do was io remain teach teaching
ing teaching and the very best thing a good
able and intelligent boy could do
was to remain in high school or col
lege until he either finished or was
called by his country.
On Mav 21st, the very next day
after President' Murphree spoke to us
Secretary of the Navy Daniels in de delivering
livering delivering the commencement address
at Rutgers College at New Bruns Brunswick,
wick, Brunswick, N. J.,'used this language: "The
President of the United States, the
foremost statesman in the world, and
the congress have called men to the
colors from 21 to 31 years of age.
Young men in college from 18 to Zl
SHOULD STAY IN COLLEGE until
thev reach the later age. All the
training they receive, mental and mil
itary, fits them for larger service.
Could anything be more emphatic
right from the first authority?
In a bulletin from the bureau of
education at Washington sent to
nrincinals and superintendents under
date of April 20 this language As
used: "Boys and girls should be
urged AS A PATRIOTIC ,DUTY to
remain in school to the completion
of the high school course, and in in
creasing numbers to enter upon col college
lege college and university courses, espec espec-ialy
ialy espec-ialy in technical and scientific lines,
and normal courses, to meet the
great need for trained men and
women." This is official and is in
exact line with tie advice v I have
given our boys who were in school
and making good progress in their
work. Last year when war was de
clared I advised against the tendency
for those in graduating classes to
emit their work before finishing. 1
appreciated their impetuous and pa
triotic impulses but I also had vu
feeling that there was going .tc be
plenty of war left for them after they
had finished and that they would
need all the education that they could
possibly get and my forecast has
been more than fulfilled.
s This position of the government
and of the directors of educational
thought is not for the purpose of
shielding these boys from the dan dangers
gers dangers and hardships of war, but for
the urgent necessity of having some
source from which to draw" material
for officers and skilled mechanical
and scientific workmen. These you
cannot make from ignorant or indif
ferent material and you cannot make
it all of a sudden either.
Have you not observed the prefer
ence shown all the while in selecting
men for" officers' training camps, to
young men of the best physique and
the best educational attainment?
: Commissioner Claxton said at Day Daytona
tona Daytona that it ,was the feeling of the
government that it was better to pre
pare for a seven years' war and have
it last but seven months than to pre
pare for a seven months war and
have it last for seven years.
Many people who are not in touch
with modern educational work have
the mistaken notion that high school
and college work is a kind of kid
glove business suitable only for soft
skinned men. Nothing is farther
from the fact. If you will take the
time to visit your high school m
Ocala vou will find the body of the
students hard at work in an earnest
manner at that. If you will take oc
casion to visit your state university
at Gainesville you will be cordially
received and you will see the studenv
body m military uniform except when
they are at their work on the farm
or in the shops. You may be some
what surprised to know that there
are more regular college students in
practical and scientific agriculture
than in any other department and
that -thev rank equal in standing with
any class of students. There are quite
a number taking the technical tram
ing provided for in the shops and lab
oratories and there has been a radio
class carried for quite a while for mil
itary preparedness. On June 15 the

for this purpose.'
In regard to any suggestion of dis disloyalty
loyalty disloyalty upon the part of Dr. A. A.
Murphree, president of the university
of the state of Florida, I want to sa
that he has thousands of warm pei-
sonal friends and admirers in the
state of Florida and over the United
States who would resent the con
temptible and ignorant suggestion to j
the uttermost. That such a suggestion
should have been given the dignity ofj
Dublicitv is unfortunate and embar
rassing to the great body of people
here who felt their obligation to mn.
for his presence and magnificent
address. To those of us who have
the pleasure of being closely person personally
ally personally acquainted with him and know his
strong and rugged and sensible and
intelligent Americanism any sugges suggestion
tion suggestion of disloyalty simply sounds
stupid and ignorant and .unworthy

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

become sluggish and weaken, thn yoa
suffer with a dull misery in the kidney
region, sharp pains in the back or sick
headache, dizziness, your stomach sours,
tongue is coated and when tha weather
is bad you have rheumatic twinges. The
urine gets cloudy, full of sediment, the
channels often get sore and irritcted,

and. your kidneys will tlien act fine. This
famous salts is made from the acid of
grapes and lemon juice, combined with
lithia, and has been used for-generations
to flush and stimulate sliipsh kidneys,
also to neutralize the aciJs i;i urine,
