WHO HAVE PAID
TAXES A BREAK
* Measure Would Relieve
Horses"' of Taxes For
riod of Two Years
The plow horses behind Flor-
ida's fiscal structure may at last
come into, their reward if a bill
introduced in the state senate yes
terday by Senator W. C. Hodges
becomes a law.
SUnder this bill the men and
women of Florida who have con.
scientiously paid their taxes year
after year, thus making it possible
for schools to operate, pensions to
be paid and government to tunec
tion, will, be relieved of that bur
den for at least two years while
those who have been avoiding
taxes through the operation of the
Murphy, Futch and other acts will
be required to take up, the burden
and pay the bill for the next bi
In short, Senator Hodges' bit
provides a tax moratorium for two
years for the owners of all pi,
erty on which the taxes, have been
paid in full without adjustments.
Rebates or discounts for the past
The bill pr 9hbits the assessor
from assessing, the commissioners
from ,levying mileage, or the col
lectors from collecting wherever
the "property comes under 'the
-terms of the moratorium.
"Florida's, 'forgotten 'men' are
Entitled to be remembered before
it is too late," Senator HodgeE
Stated in announcing the !ntroduce
tion of his bill. "For ten years oux
legislators. have been gathering in
session and as regularly yielding
to the pressure of those who dis-
like and" decline to pay taxes,
while the men and women making
their payments promptly and re-
ligiously have just as religiously
been forgotten by we in the legis-
lature who owe them most.
"This new bill, while It will not
,equalize the entire burden as
against some tax avoiders whb
haven't paid taxes ror decades,
will at least do something to re-
store in the hearts of those who
have paid their taxes a renewal
of faith in their government, and
bring a substantial measure of re-
lief and. fair play to these loyal
citizens to whom the state of
Florida and its counties owe the

'riers Tuesday evening to pre-
sent a petition' requesting that
Reid avenue be rppav4d from the
railroad to Fifth, street before fur-

Matter of Bovine Marauders,
"How Ya Gonna Keep 'Em
Down On the Farm" was the
theme song Tuesday night at the
meeting of the city commission-
ers when the matter of cows run-
ning loose in the city came up for
discussion for t he umpteenth
It seems that the city dads' have
been receiving numerous com-
plaints from indignant townspeo-
ple about bovine marauders wan-
dering at large through the city
and devouring flowers and vege-
tables in the yards of homeown-
ers and that something ought to
be done about it.
Commissioner Bernard Pridgeon
stated that if some remedy could
not be found he would-'have to
leave town, as a number of ama-
teur gardeners who had slaved
in their flower and vegetable gar-
dens to bring them to a high state
of perfection, only to have them
destroyed by cows, had been on
his neck pretty regular to have
something done about it.
The matter of providing cattle
According to word received
from Congressman: Millard Cald-
well, the hospital- project for
Port St. Joe which, was passed
upon favorably by the WPA,
April 27, Saturday was ap-
proved by President Roosevelt

pital to be bujt .near the Cen-1
tennial building. The. sponsor's
share as well as; $15,000 for
necessary equipment- is to ,be
taken care of by local interests.
Construction of the project
will begin at teo. discretion of

trol the city and keep the cows
outside the city limits.
"It doesn't do any good to im-
pound the critters," said Pridgeon,
"as the owners tell us- to go ahead

Pay for Waterway
States Bond Issue Would Not Have
Been Voted Without Assur-
ance of Refund
Representative Millard Caldwell
has asked the house rivers and
harbors committee to recommend
reimbursement or the $200,000
:spent by Gulf county for con-
struction of the connecting chan-
nel between the intracoastal wa-
terway and St. Josephs Bay.
A recent repayment request was
disapproved by the engineer's
corps on the ground that "it
would establish a precedent unde-
:sirable in the public interest."
Caldwell told the committee,
which deferred action until a la-
"ter meeting, that army engineers
assisted county officials with the
plans for the waterway. He de-
clared the bond issue would not
have been voted if there had not
been reason to believe the expen-
diture would be refunded by the
Major General Julian L. Schley,
chief of army engineers, said in
his report the project was built
primarily to serve the paper and
lumber industry at Port St. Joe.

The spoken word is given scant attention;
the printed word is thoughtfully weighed.
The spoken word barely asserts; the printed
word thoroughly convinces. The spoken word
is lost; the printed word remains.
Next Sunday will be Mother's Day, and
Port St. Joe will join with the rest of the
nation in paying tribute to the greatest
woman on earth-Mother.
Nations may come and nations may go;
statesmen, soldiers, public heroes, champions,
great artists, writers and poets, all the gal-.
axy of the great and near-great may come
and go, but there is only one woman in the
world who can be or has been Mother.
It is altogether fitting and proper that a
Sunday in May be devoted to the honoring
of Mother, for in the May-time with gar-
lands of flowers, with the freshness of grow-
ing things, it was Mother who worked
around among the flowers in the yard while
you and I played in the sunshine at her feet
or tugged at her dress with baby fingers.
And it was she who, in our moment of dis-
tress, came running to pick us up and kiss
away the injury, the hurt or to soothe the
wounded heart. Time cannot erase the mem-
ories of childhood days and Mother, the
buffer between childhood and the world.
Perhaps she has gone to a land of peace
and happiness beyond this vale of tears, and
if she has, there is the pang of sorrow in
f-n heart for one ever dear, although above
--and ib yond we know 'that she hovers near,.
an ever-present influence on the life we live,
the paths we follow. We cannot escape-and'
we would not if we could-that gentle influ-
ence of love and devotion of the one whom
above :al leelse brought gentleness and love
::into vi.r lives in0 manner unapproachable
' any other than Mother. "--"
Sunday we pay tribute to that great wom-
an-Mother, emblematic of all that is good,
all that is true, all that is precious in a world
of rough highways, a world of -trials and
tribulations, a world of selfishness and greed.
In Mother's life there was only love, and
that the love of understanding, the love of
helpfulness, the love of sacrifice-a love un-
embittered by the cross-winds of adversity
and worldly things.
May the cherished memories of the
Mother gone home ever remain fr'sh and
sweet in the lives of those who have bade
farewell to her mortal remains, and may life
continue to retain the sweet-acented happi-
ness for those whose lives ate still blessed
with the presence of Mother ever near and

IT COSTS NOTHING TO ADVERTISE
Many merchants and business men of Port
St. Joe say that they cannot afford to adver-
tise as the cost is too great. This is a very
common error in the mind of most people.
As a matter of fact, it is one of the very feast
of all merchandising costs. Indeed, if the
truth were told, the lack of proper advertis-
ing is one of the greatest of merchandising
The cost of advertising a nationally known
bed sheet selling at $1.75 is just one cent.
For selling a popular shirt costing $1.95
the advertising expense is just a little over
half a cent.
A company selling one of our most widely
advertised breakfast foods pays three-tenths
of a cent on a 15-cent package.
For a box of widely advertised crackers
that sell for 10 cents, the makers pay less
than one-tenth of a cent for advertising.
The retail trade shows similar figures. For
266 department stores noted for their suc-
cess, the cost of advertising was 2 per cent
of the total sales. In 1000 miscellaneous re-
tail establishments the cost of advertising
was found to be 1.4 per cent of total sales.
It would be very interesting to know the
advertising allowances 'for those businesses
which have failed instead of those which suc-
ceeded. It may be possible to aavertise too
much, especially a poor article, but excessive
advertising of a good thing is not among
the causes of failure.
NO TAXES TO PAY?
This matter of doing away with the ad-
valorem tax may sound' good to the average
Floridian, as he figures that with no taxes to
pay on his land he will be tax-free. But he
does not stop to take into consideration the
larger amount he will pay in the varied and
sundry taxes that will be imposed in order
to make up the deficit caused by abolition
of the ad valorem tax.
For instance, the proposed 3 per cent sales
tax. That may not sound like much to pay,
but when one goes into a store to purchase
some small article and has to pay a cent or
two cents in addition to the standard selling
price, or perhaps pay a tenth of a cent in the
shape of tokens similar to those now in use
in Alabama, the full realization of what has
happened will strike home-after it is too
The contemplated new taxes to supplant
ad valorem taxes simply will be shifting to
those least able to pay, a portion of what now
rests on those who are better able to pay
and who will go almost scot-free if the tax
on land is abolished.
Let your senator and representative in
Tallahassee know that you do not want this
shift made-that you do not want either the
state or county ad valorem tax abolished, and
that you definitely do not want a sales tax.
A bill to provide for deportation of aliens

Sitting In With the
By GILBERT D. LEACH
Florida News Service
Well, I've been threatening to
write about the lobby for a long
time and now seems to be about
the best time -to do it.
In the first place, there are at
least two major divisions among
the lobbyists. There is one class
that lobbies for something for its
owi associates. It pays its own
expenses and always wears either
a surprised or a harassed look.
Then there is a class that is al-
ways headed nowhere fast, looks
well-fed and nourished-as it is.
That class is on a salary and/or
commission (if you know what
that "and/or" means you get the
Back home there is prevalent
an idea that lobbyists are crooks.
Nothing of the kind. The class
that is here on its own business
is really doing a patriotic duty. It
is trying to get tne laws to con-
form to what it believes is right
and just to its own industry or
profession. The class tnat is paid
is trying to carry out its em-
ployer's wishes in the best way it
can, looking after t-e Interests of
the particular industry or profes-
sion that employs it. There is
nothing degrading n eng a lob-
byist. Not any more than being a
butcher or grocery keeper.
And these lobbyists, although
they make life a misery for the
senators and representatives, real-
ly serve a good purpose. No mem-
ber of the Florida legislature
knows everything about every sub-
ject and in the thousand-odd bills
already in the hoppers there are
many abstruse angles that nobody
but one well-versed and trained in
that particular line could see and
evaluate. So the wisdom of the
lobby is loaned to (or forced up-
on) the members of both houses
and it does some good.
Along with lobbyists the mass
mind reverts to attacnes.
has been said and written
attaches. In story form
them are striking blondes or stun-
ning brunettes and, here and there
a bewitching redhead thrown in
for contrast. Truth of the matter
is that the attacne committee is
the most harassed bunch of aging
gentlemen you can find anywhere.
There are a dozen applicants
hungrily awaiting every ne w
niche. The best commentary I can
give you is that I have noticed tle
most gorgeous girl or all the 'ap-
plicants hasn't been on for a
single day, and here we are in the
fifth week of the session. There
.are wives and sisters and cousins,
but this gorgeous girl is still out-
side. Doesn't match your notion,
Now here's something you prob-
ably never thought about. You
think being president of the sen-
ate or speaker of the house is a
grand honor, don't you? Well, it
is, in a way. But it means work
that you'd think twice before
choosing for your daily average.
I've watched Turner Butler in the
senate and Pierce Wood in the
house by the hour while I calmly
smoked my pipe and took in what
was going on. Boy, both of 'em
WORK. Mentally they have to be
alert and on their toes. Physically
they stand for hour after hour, at
high tension, meeting the wits of
all the members of their respec-
tive groups, turning to this a1m
that member as each rises, direct-
ing the affairs of state with a
mind and hand and voice that
must be unerring. Would you take
their jobs? Not one in a thousand
of you could handle it for ten
minutes by the clock!
Next week I'll give you some-
thing different. Possibly by that
time our affairs up here will be-
gin to "Jell" and we can tell what
the product will look like.
