It is notinoable that the per capital Mrns for white children doeretae while

those for coloredd children inaregse with conaid rable regularity as the proportion

of negro population beaowes oller. This is partly due to the smaller were

ooale of naoro teachers, and partly due to the mall provision mde for nogro

oshools. In tho wostorn portion of the stato the valution of property vries so

greatly from that in the southern part that the taxpayers would have to pay thre

tirnmoa nuih millage for equal results. A large majority of the population ire

tax exapt, being Uegroos 'ho pey no taxos, honce the burden would ooan to han

b~on placed upon the aouthorn man to take caro of and share the fruit of his

labor with the Negro.

In this work of mediation Florida has not been remis. In atu ing her

Se ati~t al eapenditures it ie surprising to learn that she expends # 6.6 for

Sedoation out of enry I100 of ate mpendlture; the nation spends 2.74.
Furthernrre, the tin stment in school property in Florida is $2.89 ia eantrart

to the nation~ a invnlirant of $:,79. In relation to lumries, the ratio ia

74.71 poreent, and that of the United States is only 8.26 percet.e 2o lth
these eopnditures she has a long step to take to ivo up to her motto of

lorida First" in regard to negro schools.
