We have received from a friend
well acquainted with military affairs,
and who has made great sacrifices for
the good of the nation, the following
article, with a request to print, with
which request we gladly comply, as it
coincides with our own views:

are required of soldiers, saluting is a
small matter. It is not the soldier

A prominent magazine recently
published a reporter s interview with
privates of the four branches of the
military service, the regulars, the na national

the marines. There was no difference
of opinion, no dissatisfaction no crit
icism, f All four held their branch of
the service in the highest esteem and
looked upon their officers as the big biggest,

whole military system! : Their admir admiration
ation admiration and confidence amounted almost
to veneration. To these men it was a
pleasure to salute their leaders, and
it would take a peculiar state of mind
to deny them the privilege.

deference required towards its train trained

simply a mob.
All tyranny, all tendency to despot despotism
ism despotism is discouraged in our ; officers'
training camps of today. They are
constantly enjoined to treat their men
with kindness and consideration while
enforcing discipline with firmness. A
private both in the army and navy
can report an officer if he is treated
in an unjust, tyrannical manner.
Let the officers, who as a rule, are
kind and considerate, retain the cour courtesy

We understand that there is going
to be difficulty in obtaining teachers
for our schools next term, which is
only a few weeks off, the reasons be being
ing being small salaries and the ability of
trained teachers to obtain much bet better
ter better paying work. It seems to the
Star that the teaching business, likw
every other business, might realize
there is a war on and conform to its
conditions. It will not be possible to
carry on instruction on the scale
measured up to in times of peace.
There are a good many young ladiey
and girls in their, teens who have
graduated in the high schools and
grammar schools, and who have no in intention

sion, profession, yet they are perfectly compe competent
tent competent to teach children the same les les-ssons

Let the school boards put such women
and girls in charge of J the i lower
classes, and let the higher ones do
the best they can or wait a year or
two. When the boys and girls have
attained what is called a grammar
school education, they have the best
of what the public schools can teach
them, and if the war lasts into 1920
they had better, turn in and help do
the work of the country rather than
put in another year, in acquiring the
more ornamental than useful finish
necessary to obtain a high school di diploma,
ploma, diploma, which they can wait for or
miss altogether better than miss a
chance of doing any real service for
the nation.

solving the sugar problem. In the

enough sugar for themselves and

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,

We regret to say Mr. "J. W. John Johnson,
son, Johnson, candidate for councilman from
the fourth ward, is much aggrieved
with the Star, City Clerk Sistrunk,
and a few more equally unfortunate
His grievances are that the Star
printed his initials wrong in Tues Tuesday's
day's Tuesday's paper, and yesterday it said:
" "There is considerable doubt that
Mr. Johnson can qualify. He will not
be an elector at the coming election,
as he hasn't paid his poll tax for 1917.
Also, tho' he is registered in the
fourth ward, he has his residence in
the first. Either of these objections,
under the 'charter, prevent him from
holding office in case of his election."
Mr. Johnson called upon us last
night and overflowed upon us with his
wrath. It was in vain that we assured
him that printing his initials wrong
was an unintentional mistake1 and
made little difference anyway. He
would not believe us. ;
Denying our assertion that he had
not paid his 1917 poll tax, he flashed
upon us a new poll tax receipt. Now,
the ordinance says that in order to
vote in a city election, one's poll tax
must be paid by or before the second
Saturday in the month preceding the
election., This would have been Satur Saturday,
day, Saturday, August 10, and when we called
Mr. Johnson's attention to the date
on his' receipt Aug. 19' (last Mon Monday)
day) Monday) he would not have it so.
The date on the receipt was written
in figures "8-19-18." The nine in
nineteen was made with a circle at
the top of a long, straight mark. An
attempt had been made to rub the
straight mark off. This would have
left the circle looking just like an 0,
and would have made the receipt
"8-10-18," which would have put Mr.
Johnson inside the limit. The date
was written in indelible pencil, which
kept the mark from rubbing put,
while leaving plain signs of the rub rubbing.
bing. rubbing. -'..V- ;;
We called Mr. Johnson's attention
to the date and the rubbing, but he
stoutly declared. he had paid his poll
tax "away back," altho he didn't give
the date. The envelope in which his
tax receipt was mailed to him was
dated Aug. 19, '18.
A few minutes later, we met Mi
Johnson on the street talking with
some friends. The matter came up
and we asked him to show the receipt.
He looked thru his pdckets and de declared
clared declared he had lost- it.
Not wishing to 'do Mr. Johnson any
injustice we fully investigated the
matter this morning. He paid Tax
Collector Stripling a dollar for poll
tax last Sunday. Mr. Stripling went
to Tampa, leaving a note to his dep deputy,
uty, deputy, Mr. Tarver, to issue a receipt,
which Mr. Tarver did next day, Aug,
19, as the stub in his receipt book
shows. Nevertheless, Mr. Johnson
declared Mr. Stripling can't prove
that he paid his poll tax on that day.
Regarding Mr. Johnson's residence
in the first ward, records in the clerk's
office show he paid water rent as ten
ant at 104 North Sanchez street,
March 29, 1918. He ordered the wa water
ter water cut off last Monday. He told the
Star he rented the house so his chil
dren wouldn't have to cross the rail
road going to schools His family liv
ed there until they went to Mcintosh
a few weeks ago. Mr. Johnson lives in
his store on North Magnolia street.
