"Two more members of the graduat graduating
ing graduating class of the law department of the
University of Florida, Burrell Thorn Thornton
ton Thornton of Ormond, and A. A. Green of
Ocala, enlisted this week. This leaves
only eight or ten men of this class out

the same class have answered the

The letter elsewhere of Lieut. At Atkinson,
kinson, Atkinson, in regard to high school and
college students enlisting in the navy
should close the controversy. The
lieutenant should certainly know just
what he is talking about. No matter
how well they mean, no man, teacher
or otherwise should say a word to dis discourage
courage discourage volunteering. There will be
plenty of young men and. then some
who will wait for the draft, and the

It's our opinion that whenever we

do the public a service. We hope Mr.
Brinson will not fall into the state of

danger of becoming as intolerant as
the priesthood used to be and would
be, if the laymen hadn't revolted. It's
becoming a habit of the teacherhood
to throw a fit if an 'outsider criticises
any of their semi-sacred methods, and
we shall not be surprised if they send
a delegation to the legislature to lobby
for a. law against such criticism, and
we shouldn't be surprised if the legis-j

Another thing that amuses is Mr.
Brinson's idea that if the war lasts,
the government will have to draw on
the college graduates two or three
years from now for officers. When we
were making an army, and all the men
were new, the collegians of course had

When Samuel Champlain earned the

keeping a journal as he sailed along
the coast from the mouth of the St.
Lawrence to Cape Ann he recorded,
among other things, the appearance
of the fields which the Indian women
cultivated not far from the site of the
present town of Gloucester, Mass. He
described, relates a writer, the hoes
used by them, made from the shells of
the horseshoe crab, a creature which
interested him greatly, and he also told
of the weeds which these women
grubbed up with their primitive hoes,

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
buyingof 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

in War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon money

Their high endeavor lies.
