The committee for the under-
privileged -child, under the direc-
tion of Past President J. R. Nor-
ton, reports outstanding achieve-
ments during the, past few months.
Through its efforts, examinations
ani treatments wre made for four
hookworm cases, one tonsilectomy,
medical care for an aged man, eye
treatment for a child, and medical
treatment for an aged negro. Be-
sides these, a patient is now under-
going, treatment for defective vis-
ion, anemia, hookworm and in-
fected tonsils. With this impress
sive 'beginning, the committee bids
fair to make a remarkable record
for itself for the current year.
The membership extends, deep-
est gymplthy to Kiwanian John
Maddox, Jr., and his family in the
loss of his father, Capt. John Mad-
dox, beloved citizen, Who passed
away last Friday morning.
Thursday night of last week,
Lieutenant Governor "Crig" Crig-
ler paid the club a surprise, visit.
He was making his usual rounds
in the Northwestern Division and
popped in to sit with the club. He
made' his usual checkup on the
culb's affairs and gave us a clean
bill of health, highly commended
us, on our activities and club spirit
and was. somewhat amazed at the
98 per cent attendance record we
rang up for the month 'of April.
,Speaker at last week's meeting
was Fred T. Barnett of Lakeland,
director of narcotics education for
the Florida Co-operative Commit-
tee. Mr. Barnett gave a very in-
-structive lecture on alcoholic drink
and its ill effects on the human
body. He offered conclusive proof
that it is not the "drunken" driver
who is responsible for so many ac-
cidents on the highways but the
"drinking" driver, and pointed out
that alcohol lowers the mental
powers and thete ability to act
quickly! at the sign of danger, thus
lessening the driver's ability to
avoid, accidents. He also stated
that alcohol has practically no food
value, contrary to a popular notion.
Lieut. Gov. Crigler will represent
the club at the International con-
vention in June. For the duration
Kiwanis International conventions
will 'be limited to International and
district officers and' trustees.

The all-important issue of who shall be the
.state's next governor has, as a result of the
first primary, been narrowed down to two
able and aggressive candidates-Millard Cald-
,well and Lex Green. Both men have long
records of distinguished public service. Each,
we believe, is sincere in his avowed determi-
nation to devote himself selflessly to Florida's
interests in the event he is elected.
The question of who shall be invested with
this signal honor and responsibility, then, re-
solves itself into one of choosing the man
,who by .temperament, background, personal-
ity, business ability and inherent dignity is
best fitted for the job.
We believe that Millard Caldwell is that
man, and it is our belief that the majority of
the voters in Gulf county are of the same
Experience has trained Caldwell for the
governorship., At the prime of life, in his
47th year, he has lived in the small town, has
served as a county .prosecutor and attorney,
twice ser-\ ed his county in the state legisla-'
ture, represented'his congressional district for
eight years in the national congress and-twice
was sent by his colleagues in the house as
their delegate to the Interparliamentary
Union, at the Hague in 1938 and at Oslo in
1939, and is a member of the executive coun-
cil of the American group.
In congress Caldwell served his 16-county
district fairly and efficiently. Through move-
ments he began have come great wartime de-
velopments -for Florida-notably Eglin Field
Which Caldwell started years ago as a small
gunnery base for ,he Army Air Corps.
He was the first Floridian to serve on the
important house appropriations committee,
and he was chairman of its subcommittee on
expenditures for the District of Columbia.
The high regard in which he was held by his
colleagues was demonstrated by his chair-
manship of the house patronage committee.
Thus, by experience 'from the small town
attorney to the international delegate, Cald-
well is possessed of those higher qualifica-
tions-moral integrity, honor, absolute fair-
ness-in which the people of Florida must
place their confidence for the troublous years
Caldwell's platform, too, is sane and all-
embracing. ;His -stand for higher wages ior
school teachers, with pensions, and a general
extension of educational service, increased old
age pensions, acceleration of experimental and
research work -in agriculture .and livestock,
more aggressiveness with respect to the tour-
ist trade, increased reforestation and addi-
tional aid to the citrus industry should recom-
mend him to the majority of voters. His in-
tention to simplify government, defend state
rights against encroachment 'by the federal
government, protect the people's interest hin
the matter of granting privileges for explor-
ing state land for oil and minerals, are other
points in his favor. Also, he has made definite
and constructive promises with respect to
Postwar planning, postwar aviation and th'e
Caldwell enjoys a reputation of being a
"doer" rather than a promiserr." One state
columnist sums him up as follows: "There is
nothing flashy about him-unles you call a
pair of searing eyes and a strong chin flashy.
But there's plenty of strength in Millard Cald-
well's face; a sense of tranquility, quiet power
and great dormant courage."
Those are virtues Florida needs in a gov-
ernor in the difficult days which lie ahead.
Possessing them in generous measure, Mil-
lard Caldwell, in our opinion, deserves in the
forthcoming election runoff, the support of
every citizen of Gulf county who has the in-
terests of his state at heart.
HOW TO BE A CONGRESSMAN
To hear court congressmen talk, one would
be ledato believe that they slave from dawn
to dusk, working only for the welfare of the
"deer peepul." However, be that as it may,
we won't quibble over the matter, but will
reprint a play-by-play account of the proceed-
ings of the house of representatives for Wed-
nesday, April 12, the first business day after
its Easter vacation, and let our readers judge
just how hard their congressmen are working
for them. We quote from the Congressional
Record of that date as follows:
The House met at noon. The Chaplain of-
fered a prayer. The Journal was read and ap-
proved. The Hon. W. G. Stigler, newly-elected
from the Second Oklahoma District, presented
himself and took the oath of office.
Brief eulogies were delivered memoralizinig
two former members who had died.
The Navy appropriations bill was reported,
referred to the calendar and ordered printed.
Two members asked and received unant-
mous consent to insert newspaper editorials
into the Record.
A resolution to grant six months' pay to
the. widow of a former employee of the House
Five members asked and received consent
to insert remarks into the Record.
M. Edwin Arthur Hall, of New York, ad--
dressed the House for one minute, urging
furlough transportation for servicemen.
Ten members asked and received consent
to insert into the Record speeches, editorials,
poems, etc. Typical is the request of Mr. Bry-
son of South Carolina, who wanted further to
circulate a poem written by one of his con-
stituents and printed in the Saturday Evening
Mr. O'Toole, of New York, addressed the
House for one minute urging that policemen
and firemen be exempted from selective ser-
Three members asked and received consent
to insert speeches and editorials into the
Mr. Taber, of New York, addressed the
House for one minute denouncing the Office
of 'War Information.
Three members asked and received consent
to insert remarks, editorials and articles into
Mr. 'Hebert, of Louisiana, spoke for 30 min-
.-ites denouncing his former friend and co-
worker, the editor of the New Orleans States,
declaring that he "had strayed from the path
of decency and honesty."
Mr. Hoffman, of Michigan, spoke for 15
minutes denouncing the Chicago Sun, praising 8
the Chicago Tribune, denouncing the New
Deal and praising Ric'hard Lyons, Illinois 'Re-

With next Sunday marking the
war's third 'Mother's Day, comes
to our mind a legend we first read
in a dogeared history BIook during
our school days. Intervening years
have somewhat dimmed its details
for us, but not its meaning.
Many centuries ago, when the
citizens of Rome were called upon
to lend their wealth and precious
gems to the support of their war-
ring government, the mother of
the Gracchus family a family
that was to 'become great in Ro-
man history-callede her strapping
sons to her side and gave them
into the service of their country
with these words, "These are my
It is a coincidence of war and
history that American 'boys are
fighting now in the same land
where the mother of the Gracchl
spoke for all mothers of soldiers.
For the mothers of America have
also given their, "jewels"-stalwart
young fighting men--gems with
the strength of granite.
But what about Mother herself?
Does she not have her own gem-
like qualities? Is she not, to every
mother's- son of us, as constant as
diamonds, as matchless as perfect
pearls? For many years, from her
sons and daughters, she has been
receiving Mother's Day gifts and
cards that praise her enduring vir-
tues, but certainly this year such
sentiments, speak of love grown
even deeper through another year
of war, and thus another year of
separation from her own.
We think of the niillions of
American Mothers who go de-
terminedly about their self-as-
signed job of making -happy homes

P.-T. A. COMPLETES MUCH
WORK DURING YEAR
A resume of work done and
projects completed was given by
committee chairmen of the Port
St. Joe Parent-Teacher Associa-
tion at the' last regular meeting of
the year held Thursday of last
week in the high school auditor-
The year. started, with a suc-
cessful membership drive under
the chairmanship of Mrs. W. S.
Quarles for a final total of 124
members. The next project under-
two sets of teaching maps if the
taken was the annual Hallowe'en
carnival to raise funds to carry
out the year's work, and a total of
$273.45 was cleared at this affair.
Of this money, $75 was given to
the .grammar school for books.
It was found' that maps were
badly needed in the school for
teaching. The P.-T. A. contacted
the school 'board, to see what could
be done to secure some. The board
stated that they would purchase
P.-T. A. could purchase one. This
was agreed to, and now three fine
sets of maps are in use.
The high school band was given
$25 requested for music, and $20.20
was donated for needed, equipment
in the lunchroom.
A conimfi-fee, composed 'of Mrs.
J. T. Ricketson, Mrs. E. M. Bowen
and. Mrs. Edwin Ramsey was given
$25 to equip a first aid room for
students who might 'become ill in
school. This' room is now in use,
fully equipped with two hospital
cots, sheets, towels, first aid ne-
cessities and other items.
Mrs. Ned Porter, home room
chairman, undertook an entirely
new project this' year. Calling a
meeting .of all home room mothers,
she uiged that a project be under-
taken to improve the 20 school
classrooms. This was done. The
P.-T. A. gave, $75 to this project,
but the greater part of the money
was raised by the individual rooms
through candy, baked goods and
sandwich sales. The actual work
done was of much more import-
ance than the cash contribution.
There has been a long-felt need
for playground equipment in the
local schools. At present there is
$65 in the P.-T. A. treasury for
playground, equipment; $25 of this
was. given by the Rotary Club, $15
by the Kiwanis Club and $25 by
the' P-T. A. There is an additional
individual gift of $100. With this
total of $165, the fall opening of
school will see adequate play-
ground equipment installed.

well done are due Mrs. Massey
Ward, hospitality; chairman, who,
with hen committee, was resepon-
sible for delicious, refreshments at
