Ed Ball and Pepper
To Spar Again Over
Operation of F. E. C.
Arguments Will Be Heard Before
ICC In Washington On
With Senator Claude Pepper,
champion of the Atlantic Coastline,
in one corner, and Ed Ball, man-
aging executor of the Florida du-
Pont interests ini the other, the
battle over operation of the Flor-
ida East Coast Railway will go into
another round before the interstate
commerce commission in Washing-
ton next January 7.
At the forthcoming hearing ar-
guments will be heard only on tes-
timony already in the record, and
no netw testimony Will be permitted.
When the FEC went into bank-
ruptcy early in the '30's, the du-
Pont estate, under Ball's direction,
bought controlling interest in .the
road's bonds, which are registered
to the St. Joe Paper Company. A
plan was! offered, to the ICC for op-
eration of the railwiay by the St. Joe
Paper Company as an independent,
Florida-controlled ioute. Instead of
accepting this. plan, the ICC offered
one of its own, which the dul*ont
interests accepted, expecting to
take over -operation, as well as own-
ership, on January 1, 1945.
An AC'L plan to take over the
road was rejected,. But on instiga-
tion of Senator Pepper, the hear-
ing was ordered re-opened at a
time when Pepper, who himself had
suggested a -heaminig date-was,,at,

From the inception of the citrus
industry Florida, year after year,
has practiced fraud and deceit in
attempting to market oranges and
grapefruit that are immature and
unit for human consumption.
As early as September, Florida
fruit begins- to move to the north-
ern markets. 'It is. as, green as grass
and any consumer who buys it is
doomed 'to disappointment. Matur-
ity tests which were supposed to
check this evil, fail miserably. The
fruit is artificially colored and pret-

All Florida is getting a .black eye
from this' consistent slipping of
worthless, inedible fruit. It knocks
the bottom out of the market and
messes up the whole deal, but
somehow we have never been able
to stop it.
ISince the Florida citrus industry
is' either too dumb oi too selfish to
play square with the consumer, the

Ever since this announcement,
Florida growers and shippers, who
.have condemned green fruit ship-
ments on one hand and indulged in
the practice on the other, have
been screaming their heads off.
But it looks like they are going
-to have to accept it whether they
like it or not, for following the
Kroger lead, other 'big chain buy-
ers have adopted the same policy,
and this week t h e Winn-Lovett

will .follow the same policy, and it'

Our Country C Right 8 r Wrong
ARE WE TO CONTINUE BEING THE GOAT
A press dispatch from \Washington in last
Friday's Jacksonville Times-Union stated that
"foreigners have $17,000.000,000 worth of gold,
bank deposits, American securities and other
long-term investments secreted in this coun-
try. More than $10,000,000,000, or roughly two-
thirds of this vast wealth belongs to citizen,.
of principal European countries whose govern-
ments are asking'U. S. taxpayers for a mini-
mum of $16,000,000,000 through the Marshall
Plan- The existence of this huge hoard was
revealed today by commerce and treasury de-
1partment finance officers."
The editor of The Star doesn't claim to be
an expert economist, but we do try to keep
abreast of the news, and it' looks to us like
the governments of these countries should de-
vise some means to chase these privately owned
funds out of hiding and use it to help them-
!selves instead of depending on the Unitedc
States to pull them out of the hole they them-
selves dug. '
Scarcity of commodities and skyrocketing
,of prices would indicate that we can't go onil

A prominent American, John S. Knight,
speaking before a group of advertising men in
Chicago recently, had some very pertinent re-
marks to make about our so-called capitalistic
"There is a subtle campaign underway in
this country." he said, "to discredit the press

"P'erhaps we have failed to do a good selling

that if it should fail, it would be supplanted
by communism or some other ism. What have
they got that even comes close?
Remember back in the days of the depres-
sion when the government was recommending
plowing under crops because they were in too
abundant supply? Those same experts today
are trying to "plow under" markets because
the demand is too great.

Forest 'Co-operatives' Seen As
Aid To Free Enterprise In South
Many of the South's 1,500,000
,small woodland owners could add
to their profit and independence by
handling their forest products thru
co-operative associations, according
to a report just received by The
Star from the U. S. Forest Service.
The report, "Forest Co-opera-
tives In the United States," *says
that such groups "serve to streng-
then our rural economy and to
sustain the best qualities of r w.

The report points out that In
many parts of the country farmers
are now paying high prices for tim-
ber products shipped from other
sections and often have difficulty
getting building material they need.
This is viewed as particularly iron-
ical in woodland, regions, such as
Gulf county, where local lumber

Forest co-operatives aid. farmers
and smal-l owners not only as pro-
ducers of' forest products, but as
consumers. Operated on a good for-
estry basis, they can contribute
much to the welfare of woodland
communities as well.
Particularly concerned with as-
sociations which are committed to
good forest practices, as a means of
keeping woodlands productive, the
report is based' upon the experi-
ences of 57 "co-ops" of different
types in various sections of the

Newsprint May Soon Be
Made From Florida Pines
Paper mills dotting the green for-
ests of Florida may soon become a
reality if possibilities of the state's
vulpwood industry are expanded to
This bright outlook and other In-
teresting data on paper manufac-
ture in Florida are revealed in a
survey made by the Florida State
Chamber of Commerce.
SBriefly, the survey shows that:
(1) White papers and newsprint
can be made from pulp from Flor-.
ida pine trees.
(2) Florida forests can adequate-
ly supply twice the volume of wood
pulp now being harvested.
(3) Florida's reforestation pro-
gram is geared to meet the demands
for the pulp industry.
That Florida already excels in
the field is shown by the survey's
discovery that, in 1945, woodpulp,
paper and allied products manufac-
.tured in Florida reached an esti-
mated, value of $48,9,56,000. Florida
putlIwood alone amounted to 600,-
000 cords with a total value' of
Paper manufacturers who desire
to locate in Florida will find a total
of 6,730,000,000 cubic feet of grow-
ing pine and hardwood from which
to draw their raw material. Experts
believe Florida can produce enough
pulpwood to double the state's pres-
Flolida pulpwood papers compare
favorably in quality with tnose pro-
duced elsewhere, the report states.
One prominent manufacturer is
quoted as follows:
"Let us dispel once and for all
the question of the ability of the
South to manufacture standard qual-
ity n-ewsiprint. Our answer to
this has always been: 'Ask the pun-
lisher who uses southern news-
print.' In 194G we found the
'South .maldng 30 per cent of all
bleached fibre produced, making
dissolving pulp, making newsprint,
making the paper for Life mag#-
zine, making high grade ground-
wood specialties-an astounding ad-
vance in 15 years."

TO MY MANY FRIENDS AND
I have been honored with the Gulf Service Award for over twenty-two years of service with
this great organization.
For this I very naturally feel greatly hon ored and deeply appreciative, but it is t6 you, my
many patrons who have made this award possible, that I owe my deepest debt of gratitude.
Having proven to your own satisfaction the true merit and worth of Gulf Products, you
have continued to be so generous with your patronage that this supply depot has achieved a meas-
ure of success that has been most gratifying to me and to the officials of the Company.
all is said and done, this award came to me because of you.
Therefore I felt I wanted to say in a very personal way to each of you, my friends, thanks
for your help.
Again Thanks a Million Times!

Benefits of Grass Silage
Grass silage reduces the weather
hazards in preserving roughage of
highest feeding and nutritive qual-
ity. In most cases a cheaper feed
is secured from grass silage than
corn silage-reducing the cost of
milk production. Legume silage also
reduces the necessity of feeding high
protein concentrates. Another ad-
(,vantage of silage is the reduction of
fire hazards. A complete grassland
system, coupled with a sound fer-
tilization program, uses labor to bet-
ter advantage, maintains and im-
proves soil fertility, prevents ero-
siori and produces milk of highest
quality and sales appeal, measured
