An observing friend asks the Star
to remonstrate against the too lavish
wearing of service buttons. She, as
well as others, has observed that
many people are wearing them who
have no right to. As we understand
it, 'parents may wear service buttons
for their sons, daughters for their
fathers, sisters for their brothers,
wives for their husbands and girls
for their fiances. No one has a right
to wear a button just for a friend. If
the; use of the symbol becomes indis indiscriminate,
criminate, indiscriminate, it will lose its merit, and
those really entitled to wear it will
not do so.
If the democrats lose control of the
House in the November election, it
will be a good deal the fault of Rep Representative
resentative Representative Kitchin of the second
North Carolina district, and the loss
of the House will be partly made up
for by the consequent reduction of
Mr. Kitchin's power to .be a block on
war legislation. Kitchin does the
country more harm than LaFollette.

FRENCH AND BELGIANS CAN
FIND HOMES IN FLORIDA
Webster, Fla., May 24, 1918.
Hon. Duncan U. Fletcher,
Washington, D. C:
Dear Sir: Realizing that so many of
the farms throughout Belgium and
Northern France have been utterly
ruined by Gerban barbarism, and that
it will be years, if ever, before they
may be brought back to former fruit fruit-fulness,
fulness, fruit-fulness, and that in the meantime
the people of these stricken lands
must be looked after and provided for
either at home or in America, I am
writing you. I note that several plans
are being made to locate groups of
these people in different sections of
this state. Now, as you know, I am
not in the real estate business, nor
have I an acre to sell; yet I am living
in one of the most productive counties
in Florida, and where the land is
actually cheaper than in any other
seetion that compares with it in fer fertility,
tility, fertility, as you also know. Now, my idea
is this, to ask you to put me in touch
with the Belgian or French legation
in Washington, so that I may find if
there are any of their people that are
planning to come to Florida, and if
so, I want them to consider what is
here in Sumter county for them. It
would be good for the Belgians oi
French, and it would be good for our
own people to have this splendid type
of foreigners amongst us. To me,
personally, there is a mighty call to
help the French, for my mother was
a daughter of La Belle France, and I
learned French before I learned Eng English;
lish; English; so this chance to help France
and her people has a double claim on
me, and I hope to help both my native
land and my mother's at the same
time, by some act. I am in a position
to know the land around here, to put
these people in touch with parties
wning lands such as are suitable
for fruit growing, trucking and staple
crops, and the deals would be directly
with the owners. I hope this plan ma materializes,
terializes, materializes, so that I too, may feel that
I have done something for humanity,
other than give to the Red Cross and
purchasing what Liberty Bonds I
may. Yours very truly,
(Signed: C. J. Huber.
Washington, May 28, 1918.
Hon. D. U. Fletcher, Washington:
Dear Mr. Senator: Answering the
letter of Mr. Huber enclosed in yours
and which I return herewith, I beg to
say that it has not come to my knowl knowledge
edge knowledge that any of our farmers intend
to emigrate, nor does my govern government
ment government intend to encourage them to
leave our country. We shall need all
our population, and if it is true, as
your correspondent states, that Flor
ida offers much more fertile land than
the ravaged parts of France, still
those parts are, for most men, their
own country, and their attachment to
it is easy understood.

friendly sentiment which inspired Mr.
Huber, and I beg you to believe me)

Belleview, June 5. Last week we
made the statement that Freeman
Hames would be the first Belleview
boy to tread on French soil. We made
a slip. Raymond Gale has been in
France doing service for months and
to him belongs the honor of being the
first Belleview boy to see service in
France. Freeman Hames will make
a good second with more to follow.
Mr. Tremere is having lots of fun
trying to boost enlistments in the
navy and army. Some time ago he
made several trips to town to try and
get Leo Hames in the navy, the army
or the national guard. Leo couldn't
get in on account of a game eye, but
between them they busted a tire and
tube to smithereens. His next at attempt
tempt attempt was to land Herman Smith in
the navy as a machinist. Herman was
willing and had stood a couple of pre preliminary
liminary preliminary examinations and was to go
up to stand a final test one Tuesday
morning, so in the going Miss Minnie
Tremere tried to drive over a stump
and the stump resented the attack by
tearing the steering gear clear out of
the car. That busted all the good
resolutions and Herman did not go in
the navy. Herman Rothschild had
great hopes and aspirations to enter
the navy, the army, the flying corps
or anything that would get him across
and into the fun the quickest and
shortest route. So, with Leo Hames
at the wheel, Mr. Tremere started out
for Ocala to gratify Herman's pat patriotic
riotic patriotic ambition. Leo entered into the
spirit of the occasion and ran the
wheeled frame so fast that the lubri lubricating
cating lubricating oil could not find time to catch
up and lubricate so that all the en engine
gine engine bearings were reduced to a nice
fine' black powder, and when they
reached the recruiting 'office he had
more bad news. He told Herman that
he could not enlist in his branch of
the service until he had registered on
the 5th day of June, like all other
good little boys coming of age since
June 5th, 1917.

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. And. 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.
