Navy Will Conduct i Bacteria C o u n t In
Tests In St. Joe Bay Milk Here Too High
Protests From Navigational Stand-
point Must Be Filed Not
Later Than Aug. 22
The commandant of the Eighth
Naval District, New Orleans, has
requested -authority to set off ex-
plosive charge's in a section of St.
.osephs Bay described as follows:
Water area to westward of longi-
tude 85 23' 00" up to mean low tide
line; bounded on north by latitude
290 50' 30"; bounded. on the south
by latitude 29 48' 10".
Examination of a chart of the bay
places this location near the tip of
the point at a. point, if observed
from the mainland, about half way
,between the- T. R. L. Cater home
and Palmhn Point. :
Nature ,of the tests are not di-
vulged by the navy,, -but it is stated
that no permanent obstructions
will .be made in the area during the
time of the tests, as all will be con-
ducted by mobile equipment.
The area will be used intermit-
tently, and at least two weeks' no-
tification will- be given navigation
before each test period', which will
not last more than two weeks. It
is estimated that about 90 days of
any calendar year will be con-
sumed by the tests.
The navy will act as co-ordinator
and in a liaison capacity for in-
forming local interests and sched-
uling the tests. During the actual
conducting of the tests the area
will be restricted to all boats and
will 'be patrolled 'by navy vessels.
Any protests against the, opera-
tions from the standpoint of navi-
gation must be received at the or-
fice of the district engineer, Room
8, Building 8, 2301 Grant Street,

PAY TO TEACHERS IN HIGH POSITION
Florida, as a result of legislatioli passed at
the recent session of the legislature, has moved
up to a high position in the pay of its public
school teachers. A survey made by the New
York Times brings out this favorable fact.
The average pay of the Florida teacher was
raised $770, which is $330 above the national
average increase. With an average pay of
$2600 for the next school year, as against $1830
for the past year, Florida leads the states of
the South, except Maryland, in that particular.
Although other southern states raised their
averages, none is as high as Florida's. Geor-
gia's is $1572, Virginia's $2000, North Caro-
lina's $1900, Alabama's $1800, Louisiana's
$2222, Kentucky's $1546, Arkansas $1500, and
Mississippi $875. Tennessee and South Caro-
lina are not listed in the survey report.
Incidentally, Florida's increase puts its av-
crage $200 above the national minimum salary
goal for teachers fixed by the National Par-
ent-Teacher Association, which is $2400.
Commenting on the figures brought-out by'
its survey, the New York Times says: "The
crisis is not over. Too many incompetent and
pnqualified teachers are still in the classroom.
And too many teachers are still receiving to-
tally inadequate salaries for the work they)
are asked to perform in a democratic society.
"Because the public has become informed
and is aroused to the needs of the schools,
conditions are expected to improve through-
out the country. There is a growing recogni-
tion that the public schools of the nation are
the bulwark of American democracy. The
Times survey indicates that the public is
stoutly behind the free public schools of the
The highly beneficial results in Florida,
placing its school teachers on a pay level more
nearly commensurate with the work they have
to do and the preparation they have to do for
that work, are due primarily to the fact that,
as the Times says, "the public has become in-
formed and is aroused to the needs of the

It is becoming the custom to bewail the fate
of the American merchant marine today, just
as it was during the war to crow over its size
and splendid future. There was justification
for hailing the magnitude of the merchant
marine's war service; and there is equal cause
for concern over the merchant marine's pres-
The war not only gave us a vast fleet of
emergency-type vessels sprinkled with some
modern ships. but it also crystalized a trend
just coming to the surface in 1939. That trend
was an enforced shift in emphasis from do-
mestic to overseas operations on the part of
Am erican steamship companies.
This shift is of great significance to Ameri-
can shipping and to the entire nation as well
It means that domestic carriers, aside from
tankers and industrial carriers, have reduced
operations to a fraction of pre-war levels,,go-
ing out of business completely in many !t--
stances because of unduly depressed rail rate
structures, increased operating costs, and
other land competition. For the nation, It
means thie in time of another .emergency, we
will' no longer have a large reservoir of do-
mestic shipping, of proven value in two world
wars. That portion of our merchant: marine
that engages in overseas trade will be bucking
fierce, foreign competition, much of it state-
This startling change in the traditional char-
acter of American shipping warrants the
adoption of a national policy that recognizes
the effective manner in which domestic ship-
ping serves our economy and security, and
also considers the support necessary for an
active world trade fleet.
WEAPONS FOR THE FUTURE
Albert Einstein may be regarded as emnis-
cient on the subject of the atom bomb, since
his initial research made it possible. But he
does not regard himself as all-knowing.
The other evening he was asked by friends
what new weapons might be employed in
World War Ill. Hehook his head, and after
several minutes of meditation said: "I don't
know what weapons might be used in World
War III, but there isn't any doubt what wea-
pons will be used in World War 1V,"
"And what are those?" a guest asked.
"Stone spears," said Einstein.

Heretofore the ramie manufac-

One Florida farmer alone exported
250,000 pound last year to Swit-

Truman Urges Vets Hold

On and' after September 1, termi-
nal leave bonds are cashaible at any
bank by the veteran owner. No loan
Shark or speculator will be per-
mitted to cash these veteran bonds

date, during which time there will
accrue to the holder 21/2 per cent
President Truman urges all vet-
erans to hold onto their bonds if
it is possible, and warns that any
veteran who needlessly converts
his bond into cash is rendering "a
great disservice, to his fellow needy
The bill signed by Truman allow-
ing cashing of the bonds also in-
cluded a clause extending the pe-
riod of time in which application
may .be made for terminal leave .pay
