greatly impressed with it.
Mr. Sharit also said, that repre-
sentatives of the FWA and the

pected to visit the city soon to in-
spect the; water system and dis-
cuss a project for the construction
of a water treating and softening
plant. They will also discuss an
addition to the municipal hospital,
which at present is overcrowded.
Continuing with his discussion
of post-war plans,. Sharit said he
would like to see an extension of

GREATER LOSS TO TOJO
The favorite battlefield tale at
Cape Gloucester, New Britain, in
the South Pacific, deals with a
Marine who spotted a Jap sniper
climbing a tree.
It was a tall tree and a long,
difficult climb, and the, Marine 'lay
patiently behind a log and just
watched. Then, as the Jap started
to swing himself into position, the
Marine fi-r'ed a single shot, and tn,
Jap came tumbling down.
Wounded later in the day, the
Marine was brought to a field hos-
pitgal for treatment. Laconically,
he told the story to inquiring
"Why didn't you shoot him while
he was an easy mark at the bot-
tom of the tree?" demanded one.
The Marine grinned. "Shucks,,

Our Country Right or Wrong
CALDWELL FOR GOVERNOR
Last week in our lead editorial, The Star
went on record as supporting unreservedly,
in the present state gubernatorial contest, the
candidacy of Millard F. Caldwell.
To emphasize that we are not alone in this
sentiment, we take the liberty of reprinting-
a few excerpts from editorials which have
appeared recently in other Florida newspa-
pers, voicing convictions similar to our own:
S.. The wise man will select a candidate
for governor in whom he can place his entire
trust, no matter what unusual situation may
develop, a man who has been tried and found
true, a bulwark of strength and character
from whom he can confidently expect fair
and sound decisions for the best interest of
the state as a whole. We believe that man
is Millard Caldwell.-Pensacola Journal.
Personally, Caldwell is personable, em-
phatic.in declaring his views, an impressive
public speaker, one whose demeanor inspired
respect and confidence.-Tamp Tribune.
Politically, Millard 'Caldwell has never been
either a fence builder or a fence straddler.
That's the kind of a man Florida could use
quite well for its next governor, in the opint
ion of many observers.-Clearwater News.
Never one of what are termed the rubber
stamp legislators, Caldwell opposed nullmerous
starry-eyed pieces of harum-scarum legisla-
tion which were thrown into the congressional
hopper by New Dealers of multi-colored hue.
Before going to congress in 1932, Mr. Cald-
well had held a series of public jobs of the
type that requires a man to keep his feet
planted on the solid earth. .. He was liked
in Washington and he is liked in Tallahassee.,
The fellow who is hungry can't waitf or the
next harvest, says Millird Caldwell, and he
proposes to do something about the long de-
lays to which applicants for assistance are
subjected. He's one man who can be de-
pended upon to really do something about it.
-Washington County News.
Millard Caldwell is the poorest promiser ..
but his record in his eigHt years of congress,
representing the Third Florida District, shows
he never failed to ring the bell when an im-
portant job was to be done. Any man chosen
a second time to represent congress in inter-
national conferences can't be discounted. He
did just that at The Hague and Oslo, Norway.
Florida must have just such a strong char-
acter, jus such a high type of man for its
next governor.-Columbia (azetfe.
Irhese and many more such unsolicited tes-
timonials of Millard :aldwell's character and
ability, deserve the impartial consideration of
ev ry voter in Guilf county.
L~t's go to the polls next Tuesday and

ADVERTISING WITH A MORAL
The Florida Power Corporation lately has
been running eye-catching advertisements in
The Star, and 'one published about three
weeks ago, showing 1000 faces of imaginary.
people, has been sticking in our mind. In the
midst of the 1000 is one oversized face repre-
senting the one person in 1000 who knows
that electricity is the smalles item and the
biggest bargain in the family budget. While
this greatly exaggerates lack of public knowl-
edge on the subject, it reveals more power-
fully than words that far too many people
are uninformed on facts which mean the
breath of life to this nation.
Every face in that advertisement has a
flcsh and blood counterpart with the power
to vote. According to their understanding,
they will, in the long run, preserve or destroy
not just the local power company, but all. pri-
vate activity and enterprise.
At this moment, in the .midst of a terrible
war to save liberty and opportunity, a power-
ful minority group in the federal government
is working to -socialize basic industries in
the name of "general welfare." It is banking
on lack of knowledge among the 1000 faces
to win the day. Such tax-exempt government
projects would take over the markets of ex-
isting highly-taxed industries which have been
built with the savings of hundreds of thou-
sands of private citizens.
The people can still stop this trend toward
state socialism. But they can take intelligent
action only if they understand that perpetu-
atiol of private industry in this country is
necessary to maintain the political freedom
of the people.
Every time we read Collier's Magazine of
late we tell ourselves we're going to write a
letter to the publishers. They've gone "dif-
ferent" and put the page numbers at the bot-
tom of the pages. If you've got a double chin
like us and like to lie in bed and read, you
can understand our grievance-it's almost im-
possible to see the page numbers in that po-
sition without holding the dadblamed maga-
zine up over your head. If. there weren't so
many good articles and stories in it, we'd
stop reading it.
Why doesn't some fellow run for president
on the promise of putting blackberry pie.,
strawberry shortcake and corn-on-the-cob in
every home in the nation. It's usually just
corn they promise.-Baker County Press.

however, was then a diety of the

greatest manifestation of honor
they could bestow upon the star-
that of giving it the name of the

WHO IS IN SYMPATHY WITH THE
PEOPLE? WHAT IS THE RECORD
OF THE "DOER"? LET US GO
TO THE RECORD
LEX GREEN and MILLARD CALDWELL were
both members of the 75th Congress and voted on Sen-
ate Bill 1685. This was a bill to provide the elimina-
tion of unsafe and insariitary housing conditions, FOR
THE ERADICATION OF SLUMS, FOR THE EREC-
TION OF DECENT, SAFE AND SANITARY DWELL-
INGS FOR' FAMILIES OF LOW INCOME, and for
the reduction of unemployment, the stimulating of
business activity and the creation of the United States
Housing Authority. Lex Gdeen voted FOR the bill.
Millar Caldwell voted AGAINST it. Congressional
Record, VoL 81, Part 8, Page 9294.
In 1926 and 1928 South Florida suffered devastat-
ing storms in the Lake Okeechobee area; 3000 human
beings lost their lives. Corpses were burned in piles
because the ordinary burial facilities were overwhelmed.
A Republican President-elect visited the area to plan
methods of preventing a repetition. A Republican Con-
gress voted over ten million dollars to construct a mag
nificent system of levees and dykes and drainage works
to prevent for all time a repetition of this great disas-
ter.j In order that this project might be carried out it
was necessary for the State of Florida to co-operate by
creating the Okeechobee Flood Control District. WHY
WOULD ANYONE VOTE AGAINST THIS HUMAN-
ITARIAN MEASURE? Millard Caldwell was one or
four members recorded AGAINST the passage of the
bill, House Bill No. 497. House Journal 1929, pgs. 345-0.
In 1931 Millard Caldwell voted AGAINST Senate
Bill No. 361 which secured to the 67 counties of Florida
large revenues for worthwhile public purposes. Had
his opposition to the law prevailed, the counties would
-eb deprived of this revenue which now amounts to
around $48,000 per county annually, and Old-Age Pen-
sions could not have had ttieir recent increase.) House
Journal 1931, pages 518-19.
In 1931 the Florida Legislature enacted the Teach-
ers' Pension Bill providing a pension for school teachers
who have given 35 years of their life to Florida Public
Schools and who are incapacitated and without means
of adequate support. Millard Caldwell voted AGAINST
this humanitarianr measure for the benefit of Florida's
underpaid teachers. House Journal 1931, page 657.
A group of Florida War Mothers in West Palm
Beach on May 10th called on voters of the State to
dedicate this election to our boys and girls in the armed
forces and elect LEX GREEN Governor because of his
!experience, his faith in a greater Florida, his Christian
life, constructive record and valuable contacts in Wash-
ington, 'all of which, they say, will contribute greatly
Pto winning the war and the peace and returning our
sons and daughters to a safe and sound political econ-
omy. Let's join these War Mothers in voting.for LEX

'HEALTH IN THE SCHOOL' IS
LAST STUDY GROUP TOPIC
The Parent-Teachers Association
study group held the last in a
series of discussions on the ado-
lescent child Thursday afternoon
of last week. Topic was "Health
In the School," and an informal
discussion was carried, out headed
by' Mrs. Sally Costin, Mrs. Robert
Taper and Mr. Nobie Stone.
The importance of health in the
home as well as. in the school was
stressed. The point was made to
protect not only the physical
health, but also the mental and
emotional health of children. Alonu
with this was, the urge, to improve
physical environment, e.g., build-
ings, water, playgrounds.
Referring to specific diseases,
Mr. Stone gave these figures, 3b
per cent of thel rural population of
Florida has hookwormn and to cope
with this situation, more attentions
should be given in administering
treatment to those infected. He
stated further that the state' o
Florida leads all other states in
the Union in the number of ma-
laria cases; West Florida leads
the state in these cases.
It was concluded' as a result of
the discussion that if something
is to be done to rid' our schools
of these and other diseases, every-
one must work for a better health
program in the home and in the
