Lack of New Taxes

Says Gov. Caldwell
Says Solons Did Good Job, But
Precluded Possibility of
Governor Caldwell said the legis-

'without raising new taxes to meet
all its appropriations, "diid a good

"The legislature has not, by
failing .to raise additional funds,
crippled the state,," he said. "It has
simply precluuded the accomplish-
ments of more progress."
He went on to say that "the bud-
get commission, in attempting to
stretch available funds, will mini-
mize the school deficit as much as
possible, but I see no likelihood
that financial requirements of the
new school bill can be met in full."
As the legislature wound up its
affairs and 'went home, the gover-
nor allowed the record $63,300,000
general appropriations' bill to be-

He also withheld his signature
from appropriations of $200,000 for

Probably the outstanding meas-

AND AMERICA'S BANKS
announce the Bond-a-Month Plan
An easy, automatic way to buy U. S. Sav-
ings Bonds for Americans who cannot take
advantage of the Payroll Savings Plan.
FOR MILLIONS of Americans, the Payroll Savings
V Plan has proved the perfect way to save.
Its ability to make saving a regular, continuous,
automatic procedure has enabled these millions of.
people to accumulate billions of dollars in U.S.
Savings Bonds-money which, for the mostpart,
they would not otherwise have saved.
Now'bh rough the co-operationof America'sbanks,
all the advantages of the Payroll Plan are being
made available to people NOT on payrolls-through
the new Bond-a-Month Plan for buying U. S. Sav-
if you have a checking account
-here is your plan!
The mechanics of the new Plan are simple.
You go to the bank in which you keep a checking
account. You authorize the bank to buy for you, at
monthly intervals, a U. S. Savings Bond. From then
on, the bank buys the Bond regularly, sends it to
you, and debits your account for the purchase price.
Suppose you want to buy a $100 E Bond every
month. You simply sign a card authorizing your
bank to deduct $75 each month from your account.
After that, the Bond is bought, registered in your
name, and sent to you-automatically.
Can you match
As your banker will tell you, no other security of
comparable safety will give you as good a return on
your money as U. S. Savings Bonds.
In addition, these Bonds can be quickly turned
into cash-without loss-in case of emergency. Any
man who has any savings ought to have at least a
substantial part of them in U. S. Savings Bonds.
The new Bond-a-Month Plan makes accumulating
money easy, safe, and above all, sure.
The Plan makes it easy for you to arrange a
steady income for yourself in any amount you
choose, starting 10 years from today. $75 a month
put into Bonds now will give you $100 a month,
beginning in 1957.
For a financially sound future, for both your
country and yourself, see your bank and start buy-
ing U. S. Savings Bonds through the Bond-a-Month
Save the easy, automatic way-with U.. S Savings Bonds

se,-.ve the southeastern states.
Thie new company will be or-

ation of Shreveport, La., which has
filed' an application with the fed-
eral power commission for actual
construction of the line to serve
OFlorida, Georgia, Alabama an d

The system will cost about $57,-
000,000, and United' Gas plans to
spend anm additional $17,000,000 on
its own installations for delivering
gais to pipelines of the subsidiary.
About 1500 miles of transmission
lines and facilities are planned.
No actual work can be started

'"4 Right or Wrong
USED NEW CARS
Automobile manufacturers have a headache.
Newspapers are revealing a situation widely
known in Detroit which affects all would-be
buyers of new cars. Buyers of brand-new atu-
tomobiles have been driving across the street
to used car lots and selling at a considerable
advance over the purchase price. The cars are
then resold at a still further advance. Many
buyers have been repeating' this performance.
One bought and resold 14 new cars in a-few
Just what is to be done about it? Who can
read a purchaser's mind and tell that he is
buying a car not to use, but to sell on a used
car lot at a profit?
The manufacturers must wonder why, if
buyers are willing to pay not only the original
Price but several hundred dollars more, the
makers should not get the dollars? That
should cut the present train of resales, and the
-ultimate buyer would pay no more than he
seems willing to pay now. Few manufacturers,
however, would like to raise their prices:, by,
.say, $800 at one swoop, unless their competi-
tors did the same. And price agreements be-
tween business rivals are illegal.
It's ,one of those puzzles confronting a be-
-wildered world at every turn. There's only one

OUR STORY 'STINKS' HE SAYS
An irate Wewahitchka ball player called us
Friday morning to tell us that our story on
Sunday's game "stinks,'" that they didn't im-
port "Ace" Adams to beat, Port St. Joe but
merely to draw a crowd to pay for their new
grandstand (which we are glad to report they
did), w'here'd we get that word "'whoop-de-
doo" (that seemed his main gripe), and that
if there was any dirty playing pulled it was by
St. Joe, not Wewahitchka (our story made no
mention of dirty playing, so perhaps his con-
science bothered him).
We gently informed him that it was his
privilege to say what 'he wanted about our
story, and if he said it stinks, why then it
stinks, but that we reserved the right to print
the facts as we see them, that The Star and
the people of Port St. Joe are behind the Saints
to the limit because the players are all local
boys playing for the enjoyment they derive
from the game and that regardless of whether
they win or lose they do so gracefully.
Our fan went on another ten minutes or so,
with the word "stinks" interlarded in his con-
versation repeatedly, while we listened pati-
ently, and when he finally-decided to call it a
day, we thanked him for his comment and told
him to call us again some time when he had
some equally constructive criticism.
There is an old newspaper axiom that a pa-
per that never riles anybody isn't much of a
newspaper, and while we will not intention-
ally write something to hurt someone's feel-
ings (in fact, at times we omit stories that
might cause pain or embarrassment to inno-
cent parties), we do feel.that straight facts
and the truth are essential in any story. In
sports particularly, "razzing" is the rule rather
than the exception, and it is a poor organiza-
tion( that cannot "take it" and grin.

LADY NEARLY CHOKED
WHILE LYING, IN BED-
DUE TO STOMACH. GAS
One lady said a :few days ago that
she used to be afraid; to go to bed i
at night. She was swollen with
stomach gas which always got
worse when she went to bed, and
the gas would rise, up in her throat
after she lay down and would
nearly choke her. She couldn't lie
lat. Had to prop herself up on pil-i
lows. Recently this, lady got IN-
NER-AiID and now says, the gas is
gone, stomach feels Crine, bowels
are, regular and s'he can, go to boO.

I co-introduced a bill 'with Rep.
McKensie of Le.vy raising the pen.
sion of widows of veterans of the
Spanish-American War from $60 to
$75 per month.
In my opinion, the most import-
ant piece of legislation passed dur-
ing the 1947 session of the Florida
legislature was the citizens com-
mittee education program. This
bill, through its reorganization for-
mulas 'and the appropriation which
it carried, should make the citizens
of Florida justly proud of its
schools in the coming years. It was
a pleasure for me to have the
honor of serving as vice-chairman
of Education A. th- committee that
drafted this 'bill and olffe-red it to
the legislature for passage.
I wish to thank the people of
Gulf county for bestowing upon me
the high honor of representing
them ini the legislature., and I sin-
cerely hope that my actions during
the 1947 session has reflected
honor on the citizens of Gulf county.

House Bill 663-Is a bill which I
believe all the citizens of GulM
county can be justly proud of. This
bill will appropriate $10,000 per
year for the re-designing and re-
building of Constitution Park, and
provides for its maintenance. Ten-
tative plan's, which have been
made by the stable road depait-
nient, in co-operation with tbh Flor-
ida Park Service, will make Conl-
stitution Park one of the outstand-
ing attr'.'crtons of West Flori'U.
House Joint Resolution 896-An
amendment to -the constitution to
create two new senatorial di;ricrts.
The ::9,'i will be o.. ilatoe ou' of
Monroe county and, the 40th out of
Calhoun and Washington. This will
leave Gulif and Bay in the 25th dis-
trict. The reason I agreed, to this
division is that Gulf and Bay coun.
ties will rotate the sienatorship,
thus giving Gulf county a senator
every other four years instead of
avery 16 years, as is the present
arrangement. This amendment will
be. voted on by the people in the
1948 general election.
House Bill 1142-Provides for a
closed season on shrimp and oy-
sters and regulates the size of each
that may be taken in Gulif county.
This legislattion was requested by
local shrimpers and O-ystermen.
The ,following are general bills

House Bill No. 1-This bill I co-
introduced with Rep. Floyd of
Franklin. It sets up co-educatioai

men and the University of Florida.
House Bill 838 Introduced by
myself, reduces the county cost of
its patients, at TlB sanatoriums
from $1.50 per day to 75c per day
per patient. This will save Gulf
county a considerable amount of
money over a period of time.
