Cost of Public
Operating Expenses Per Pupil In
Gulf County Comes to
$37.30 In 1940
The current operating cost of
the public schools of Florida in-
creased 45.5%. from 1935 to 1940.
During the same period the total
number of pupils enrolled in-
creased 3.5%, according to figures
released yesterday by the Florida
Tax Revision League.
Current operating expenses of
the public schools for the school
year 1934-35 totaled $13,004,344,
and the 1939-40 total was $18,929,-
345-an increase of $5,925,001. Fig-
ures are for current operating ex-
-tenses only. For 1934-35 there were
disbursements of $478,485 for cap-
ital outlays and $5.416,402 for debt
service, making total disburse-
ments for the year $18,899,232. In
1939-40 disbursements for capital
outlays amounted to $1,597,871 and
Jebt service $4,6,39,848, making to-
tal disbursements $25.167,310.
The average current operating
cost per pupil enrolled in Gulf
county was $32.39 for the school
year 1934-35, with 700 pupils en-
rolled, and $37.30 for the school
year 1.39-40, with 1,378 pupils en-
rolled. Average current operating
cost per pupil enrolled over the
state was $33.82 for 1934-35 and
$47.57 for 1939-40.
Current operating cost per pu
pil by counties shows a wide vari-
ation. In 1934-35 Collier county's
school operating cost amounted to
$64.92 per pupil, the highest of any
county in the state, while Bay
county's was $19.01 per pupil.
In 1939-40 current operating cost
per pupil was $70.57 in Glades
county against $32.37 In Bay. Col-
lier county reduced their cost to
$60.92 in 1939-40, being the only
county in the state which operated
at a lower cost per pupil than in
the school year 1934-35.

DEATH TAKES NO HOLIDAY
Between six and seven hundred persons in
the United States will meet violent death in
auto accidents over this three-day Fourth of
July week-end, according to statistics com-
piled over a period of years. Let's see to it
that none of these deaths occur in Port St.
Joe or Gulf county. We cain do it by driving
safely and observing all traffic rules.
Among the millions of birthdays occurring
each year here and there on the earth's face,
thare is one which is absolutely unique.
It is the Fourth of July, which we are ob-
Unlike the proverbial actress, the United
States is proud to give its right age. The
165 years of existence it can boast have all
becer passed as a democracy, under one type
of government and one Constitution. Only
the government of England can boast of a
longer existence. France, Germany, Russia,
Japan and the rest have changed their po-
litical structures so often that they seem like
youngsters compared to us.
But the United States has enjoyed the lib-
erty and justice that come only under de-
mocracy for over a century and a half
now. Every additional birthday becomes a
cause for greater rejoicing, for it helps to
prove that freedom is the only enduring ideal
in a changing world.
It is hard to realize that America has had
so many birthdays. Democracy does not show
its age. Today, when reactionary systems ot
all kinds are running wild over half the globe
and most of Europe is under the iron heed
of the Hun, this country of ours seems by
contrast younger than ever, for it has the
vitality and strength that goes with.youth.
And the Fourth of July-the most import-
ant birthday in the world-should be our re-
minder that democracy is the only way ot
life that ensures happy birthdays for all or
us who live and enjoy our freedom under it.
We've noticed that since President Roose-
velt clamped down on the circulation of Ger-
man propaganda material and froze German
assets in the United States that Linbergh and
Wheeler have cut down their activities. It
seems rather strange that these appeasers
have been struck by poverty at this particu-
WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR?
In his recent broadcast to the nation, Presi-
dent Roosevelt said:
"We shall actively resist wherever neces-
sary, and with all our resources, every at-
tempt by Hitler to extend his Nazi domina-
tion in the Western Hemisphere."
With the Vichy government now fully
aligned with Hitler and with Spain and Por-
tugal helpless to resist, doesn't Hitler to all
intents and purposes now hold the northwest
coast of Africa? Doesn't he to all intents and
purposes now hold Dakar?
kWhat about the Azores? What about the
Cape Verde Islands and the Canary Islands?
Must we wait until Hitler or his stooges grab
Hasn't the time come to act?
Mr. Roosevelt said further:
"Nobody can foretell tonight just when the
acts of the dictators will ripen into attack on
this hemisphere and us. But we know enough
by now to realize that it would be suicide to
wait until they are in our front yard."
If Britain falls, won't the Nazis be in our
front yard? We all know by now that the
will of the British to continue their heroes
resistance is based on the belief that we are
in this fight with them.
Isn't it time to show by deeds, not words,
that we are in this fight with them ro the
Are we going to let Hitler get the jump on
us the way he has on all the other countries?
What are we waiting for? Let's be the
ones to get the jump on Hitler!
ANOTHER PLEDGE BROKEN
As one news commentator put it, Stalin is
the last and most impressive example of the
folly of trying to appease the one-time Vien-
nese house painter who has become master
of a continent. The Russians, obviously afraid,
did everything in their power to mollify the
Nazis. They signed a -...:- -'i.. and col-
laboration pact. They agreed to deliver to
Germi-anv considerable quantities of vital raw
materials. According to reliable writers, they
permitted German technicians to come into
Russian industry in an attempt to speed up
production and transport. They did nothing to
prevent any of Hitler's territorial acquisi-
tions. But all this was not enough. And the
oft-given warnings of Winston Churchill at
last came true-when Hitler was ready he
struck at Russia, despite the pact, despite all
pledges of frienship.
Hitler's spoken reasons for war against the
Soviet are his usual ones-he claimed that
Russia had not lived up to her agreements,
that Russian agents were seeking the down-
fall of the reich, and that he was simply act-
ing to save Europe from the blight of Com-
munism. No one believes that these reasons
amount to more than an easy alibi for the
breakage of another treaty. Russia has in
abundance what Hitler most sorely lacks-
grain, to feed the German people; oil, to pro-
pel the German war machine. And, on top of
that, if Russia could be destroyed as a mili-
tary power, Hitler would no longer have to
fear attack front the east. He could then con-
centrate all of his weapons for the final as.
sault on the British Isles.
It is clear that Hitler has taken a gigantic
gamble. Russia, as Napoleon found out, has
been the graveyard of empire before. It is
a vast land, and much of it is geographically
and climatically unfriendly. In the Little Cor-
plrtl' plirase," Empires die of indigestion."
And Russia is the biggest bite that any con-
queror could attempt.
Hitler certainly must have felt there was
no other solution to his problems before de-
ciding to give the marching order to his le-
gions along the 1500-mile front that extends
from Narvik to the Carpathians.
If Hitler subdues Russia, he will have all
he needs-the blockade will no longer be im-
portant, and he will have taken a long step
tro'vrd mastery of Asia as well as Europe.
If he loses in Russia, he will be finished. The
fate of much of the world may be decided
in the wheat fields of the Ukraine, and the
oil lands of the Carpathians.
