Tupelo Honey Exhibit
Planned for State Fair
F'or the fir-st time in several y ars
Florida's famous tupelo honey wvi;i
le exhibited at the Florida StatEo
Fair to be he!d in Tamnip Febri-
ary 3 to 14. TLe di plax for ith
exhibit are being prepared by H.
A. Gaskin of Blountst,- o and
Claudius I anier o' W.xewaic ika.
John D. Haynie. apiculturist with
the state agricultural extension s-r-
vice, points out that tupelo hone:
is expensive to produce. The bees
are kept in the swamps in the
spring and in the. general farmitM
regions in summer. The flow from
blossoms of the tupelo tree usually
lasts two to three weeks, between
April 15 and May 15. Bees are
hauled in from the. farming sections
and placed on platforms 10 to 12
feet above the river bank to be
above high flood waters In spring.
In poor seasons, Haynie says. bee-
keepers fee-d sugar-,yrup and pollen
to get their bees ready for the fast
work re uired during the tipelo
flow. The colonies often work ;o
hard during the tups-lo flow that
their numbers are seriously de--
pleted. After the fiow is over they
must 'be taken to a farming section
to build up their colony strength
and store utp a supply of poll .n and

IF YOU'RE CAUGHT, IT'S A 'SPEED TRAP'
Georgia's coastal route to Florida has been
in the headlines as a -"speed trap"-so named
by those drivers who thought they could ex-
ceed the legal speed limit set by the legislature
,of that state and get away with it. Included
among the "victims," by their own statements,
were two Central Florida citizens wvho like to
think they are too prominent to be tagged for
breaking a Georgia law.
Just what is a speed trap? In Georgia, Flor-
ida, or any other state,.a speed trap is any place
where an effort is honestly made to hold wild
and irresponsible drivers down to the speed
limit set by statutes a limit officers .are
sworn to enforce. The only reason for a speed
limit is to cut down the growing number of
deaths and injuries caused by speed too high
for safety. The 1947 records of highway deaths
proves the necessity of curbing fast drivers.
We urge the passage of laws to lower the
death toll, and if those laws are en orced in
any one section and ignored in adjacent setc-
tions, then that section of a state endeavoring
to carry out the law is labeled as a "speed
trap." So long as the officers catch the small
fry in their net, all is well, but as soon as the
law catches up with the real offenders-the
big (?) guys-the public will hear their howls
of anguish over seven states. The bigger (and
louiser) they are, the louder they howl.

To paraphrase Mark Twain's famous remark
concerning the weather, everybody talks about
inflation but no one does anything about it.
The political proposals for dealing with this
number one domestic problem seem unrealis-
tic, to put it mildly. Mr. Truman and his of-
ficial family are still bent on rationing and
price control-policies which, in other coun-
tries, have led to declines in production and
the growth of the black market. The Republi-
cans lean to rather indefinite voluntary con-
trols, Shich have been ineffective when tried
-in the past. In both political camps there is an
obvious effort to advocate measures which will
attract as many voters as possible, and step
on the minimum number of toes.
It used to be wine, women and song, but
now it's hooch, hug and hurry.
Quality Frozen Figs
Figs are high in calories; are ex-
cellent sources of sugar, iron and
calcium; and have long been rec-
ommended for their laxative prop-
erties. They are relatively low in
acids and astringency, and the fla-
vor Is mild and delicate. For
those who like the fresh fig flavor,
they are one of the choice frozen
fruits. Frozen figs and rich cream
are a delicacy. It has been found
by University of- Georgia that figs
which have begun to shrivel with-
stand freezing better and have firm-
er texture when defrosted than figs
which were plump and in succulent
stage of maturity when .processed.
Sleeping Potion for Potatoes
A "sleeping potion" for potatoes
to reduce sprouting in storage is
one of the more recent scientific
developments now available for
housewives. The result of research
conducted by Cornell university, the
new chemical was used on more
than 600,000 bushels last year by
large growers. It is called methyl
ester and is now available in dust
form in one pound containers for
the small grower who produces for
home use and for the housewife who
stores potatoes in large quantity.

3 Unions Block Labor Peace-Refuse Wage Boost
Already Accepted by 19 Other Railroad Unions!
The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engi-
neers, Brotherhood of Locomotive Fire-
. men and Enginemen and the Switchmen's
Union of North America, representing
125,000 railroad employes, have refused
to accept the offer of the Railroads of a
wage increase of 153 cents an hour.
This is the same increase awarded
1,000,000 non-operating employes by an
arbitration board in September, 1947.
This is the same increase accepted by
175,000 conductors, trainmen and switch-
men by agreement on November 14, 1947.
Agreements have been made with
1.,175,000 employes, represented by nine-
teen unions. But these three unions, rep-
resenting only 125,000 men, are trying to
get more. They are demanding also many
new working rules not embraced in the
settlement with the conductors and train-
Incidentally, the Switchmen's Union of
North America represents only about- 7%
of all railroad switchmen, the other 93%
being represented by the Brotherhood of
Railroad Trainmen and covered by the
settlement with that union.
The leaders of these three unions spread a
strike ballot while negotiations were still
in progress. This is not a secret vote but is
taken by union leaders and votes are
signed by the employes in the presence
of union representatives.
When direct negotiations failed, the
leaders of these three unions refused to
toin the railroads in asking (ihe National
Mediation Board to attempt to settle the
dispute, but the Board took jurisdiction
at the request of the carriers and has been
earnestly attempting since November 24,
1947, to bring about a settlement. The
Board on January 15, 1948, announced
it- inability to reach a mediation settle-
ment. The leaders of the unions rejected
the I.c:;u-^ e f the M.e'diaTioni Boasrd to
arbitrate. The raihoads accuoted.
The Unions having refused to arbitrate,
the Railway Labor Act provides for the
appointment of a fact-finding board by
The railroads feel it is due shippers,
passengers, employes, stockholders, and
the general public to know that through-
out these negotiations and in mediation,
they have not only exerted every effort to
reach a fair and reasonable settlement,
but they have also met every requirement
of the Railway Labor Act respecting the
negotiation, mediation, and arbitration of
Itseems unthinkable that these three unions,
representing less than 10 per cent of railroad
employes, and those among the highest paid,
can successfully maintain the threat of a par-
alyzing strike against the interest of the en-
tire country-and against 90 per cent of their
The threat of a strike cannot justify grant-
ing more favorable conditions to 125,000 em-
ployes than have already been put in effect
for 1,175,000, nor will it alter the opposition
of the railroads to unwarranted wage in-
creases or to changes in working rules which
are not justified.
