That bandstand we have been
talking about would have been
very useful at the Carnival Satur-
day. Some of you old-timers who
have played. in the band know how
difficult it is to set a music stand
on the side of a clump of dirt, keep
your equilibrium and play a horn
at the same time. Of course, we
high school band folks are a bit
more rugged' than you old-timers,
but I still say a band stand would
be a nnie thing to have, not only
for the band, but in case our sena-
tor or governor paid us a visit.
On the sixteenth, the band went
to Tallahassee to hear the U. S.
Navy band from Washington, un-
der the direction of Lt. Charles
Brendler. The music exceeded
even -our fondest expectations.
Most of our band members are still
talking about their bass drummer
who was one of the most outstand-

Excerpt from "The Saint Josepn'
Times." issue of Februayr 2, 189.9:
"About two hundred refugee In-
dians are said to be concealing in
the hammocks on the eastern arm
or St. Andrews Bay, between thirty
and forty miles of this place. A de-
tachment of U. S. Troops are in
pursuit of them. As yet they have
committed no depredations and ex-
cite but little alarm in the neigh-
borhood." No, times ain't
what they used to be, but who
wants a poison arrow in the back
of his anatomy? ,,

It requires only a few minutes to test your

WILL ROAD POLICIES CHANGE?
Florida's rural roads may come in for that
long-needed attention at the next session of
the state legislature, providing rural people
themselves will use the power they possess in
turning the heat on their representatives and
senators and insist on a complete change in our
antiquated and outmoded roads laws and poli-
cies for building and maintaining county roads
in the state.
Need for such a change is readily seen and
understood when it is noted that each of the
67 counties of the state has its own "system"
of road building and maintenance, with very
.little, if any, connection with the state sys-
tem, or unified state plan. Fifty years' ex-
perience in the present system of county road
construction has shown no improvement to
amount, to anything in the hundreds of miles
of strictly rural roads The best any of the
counties have been able to do is to keep pour-
ing good money into dirt roads in a vain ef-
fort, to keep them passable at least a part of
the time during the year. And even this make-
shift system is often seriously handicapped by
insufficient funds, inefficient equipment and
inexperienced personnel. The result has been
that Florida's rural roads have remained "ne-
glected and forgotten orphans," and the great
bulk of rural people have suffered tremendous
financial, educatioani and health losses.
Of course Florida will continue to build and
improve her main highway arteries-in order to
promote development and accommodate the
heavy flow. of traffic which the state enjoys
the year round (over one million dollars worth
of such highway contracts let to one road con-
tractor in West Florida last week by-the state
road department for less than 100 miles of
maintenance) but it is surely within the
bounds of reason and good business to now
take note of the sad plight of strictly rural
roads which the home people must use: in"
making a living and developing their sections
and making rural life more pleasant.
So far as we know, no one has come for-
ward with any specific plan to overhaul our
present, road policies in this state, but it is cer-
tainly high time for a Moses to appear on
the scene and lead the fight to bring to the
great mass of rural people the advantages of
hard surfaced roads.
Better rural roads is the paramount need of
Florida today--and don't let anyone tell you
different!-IHolmes County Advertiser.

FLORIDA WATERWAYS in
Since the Gulf Coast area hereabouts has
one of the'best inland waterways, and one of hi
the most economical from the standpoint of he
upkeep, it is interesting to note what an army sp
engineer says of Florida's waterways: it
Tremendous value of Florida's waterways
during the war years is shown in the recent de
report of Col. A. B. Jones, district U. S.. Army pe
engineer at Jacksonville, -showing that ap- To
proximately 1,300,000 tons of commodities in
were transported by them during the peak gt
These figures covered Colonel Jones' dis- r
trict, in which are the Florida east coast intra- us
coastal waterway, the St. Johns River from te
Jacksonville to Lake HIarney, and the cross-
state waterway through Lake Okeechobee, 30
and a portion of the Gulf Coast intracoastal md
Through the latter nearly 250,000,000 gal- 1,
Ions of vitally-needed gasoline moved from
Texas refineries to Carrabelle. There it was
pumped through the six-inch pipeline to Jack-
sonville, where it was loaded on barges for
distribution along the Atlantic coast.
These and other waterways must be de-
veloped to full capacity for further utilization
in peace and as a protection for the unprece-
dented traffic that occurs in time of war.-

Ever play chess? It's a great
game! One of the strongest friend-
ships I know of tarted with a game
of chess-between Dad Hoskins, in
our town, and a man named Dalton
Barnes, in England.
They've never seen each other,
never met. But for the past eight
years they've been playing chess
by mail together- Dad puzzling
over Dalton's latest letter, while he
sends a chart of his next move to
Dad always thinks best 'ith a'
mellow glass of beer beside l
chessboard.-And the Englishman
writes him that he does the same.
"You know, it's almost as if we
shared a glass of beer together,
too!" says Dad contentedly.
From where I sit, you can talk
about diplomacy and foreign pol-
icy, but it's often those little things
-likea game of chess or a glass
of beer-that can make for toler-
ance and understanding ... be-
tween people of all nations ... be-
tween neighbors here at home!
