Our Country Right or Wrong
ODD WAY TO BE 'FRIENDLY'
With test wells being sunk in Gulf county
and the possibility that oil may be found in
this area, as it has been in small quantities in
South Florida, a test suit filed by the United
States Deparment of Justice in the U. S. dis-
trict court in Los Angeles asserting the fed-
eral government's right to oil and other min-
eral deposits in coastal submerged lands lying
betweenthe low water line and the three-mile
limit should be of interest not only locally,
but throughout Florida.
In the Los Angeles case the U. S. attorney
general would enjoin operations of an oil com-
pany which is extracting oil off the Calitoi-
nia coast near Santa Barbara under a lease
issued by the state of California, although it
has been long held in court decisions that the
ownership and jurisdiction of lands in states
bordering on the ocean extends in all cases at
least one marine league, or three geographic
miles, "from the coast on the open sea."
Ahile the attorney general says the suit is
entirely friendly, nevertheless its purpose Ts
to take away from the several states the own-
ership and control of land that has been'
recognized as under state jurisdiction eve.t
since the creation of our federal government.
It wnuld strip the coastal oil-producing states
of income which has helped maintain local
governments, as well as the federal govern-
ment, through income taxes, and would pre-
vent future coastal states where such minerals
might be found beneath the sea, from realiz-
ing a profitable source of revenue.
It is difficult to understand the reason for
such attempts 'to limit state jurisdiction over

The United States Treasury Department is
trying to make snoopers out of bankers ant
their employes, and has sent out an order de-
creeing that all banks were to keep records
of persons handling currency through the
banks in sums of $10,000 or over, and the treas-
ury also wants information on all persons wnu
handle bills in $50 denominations or higher.
Every banker in the nation is to be a de-
tective for the government, giving the treas-
ury information about their customers, which
is contrary to most people's ideas of freedom
and right. In short, it makes a sleuth of every
banker and every employee of the bank, to
stick their noses into the private business o0
every citizen who happens to handle that
amount or size of currency, and opens the
way for further regulations and regimentation
of its customers.
What effect this will have on curtailing
"black market" operation cannot be foretold
-it has little connection with the legitimate
business of banking, and regardless of whe-
ther a black market operator is a menace or
not-it is still an infringement upon freedom
and individual rights when the government,
through any branch of its service, makes de-
tectives out of bankers, asking them to reveal
information about their customers.
This is just another step in regimentation
that arouses the ire of the long-suffering pub-
lic, and congress should rebuke the depart-
ment that issued this order.
We would rather see our bankers wearing
white collars, sitting in their screened cages,
and with a hand-wave and howdy for every-
t)ody coming in. than to know that they had
been snooping through our deposit box and
over our account to ferret out the S50 bills.
