Apparently nettled over the 0-0
tie in their game with the St. Joe
Sharks last year, the Quincy Tigers
downed the local high school grid
team 18-7 Friday night in Quincy
in the opening game of the football
The Sharks began the game with
fighting spirit, and in no time made
the first touchdown of the game.
During the remainder of the first
half Quincy scored but failed to get
the extra point.
During the- second quarter" the.
Sharks received a severe setback
when Philip Chatham, star quarter-
back broke his leg and our little
tornado, Earl "Champ" McCormick,
was also taken out of the game due
to a sprained knee. Chatham didn't
know his leg was broken, and kept
playing off and on throughout the
remainder of the game.

LET WASHINGTON SET EXAMPLE
The editor of The Star for years has been harp-
ing on the fact that the cost of government could
be substantially reduced if economy measures
were adopted up there in Washington, but na-
turally the ravings of a country newspaper pub-
lisher cut little ice with the bigwigs on the Po-
tomac who throw the taxpayers' money around
Along this line, we noticed a glaring omission
in Truman's radio broadcast setting forth the
steps which must be taken to meet the present
emergency. Said Harry: "This defense program
cannot be achieved on the basis of 'business as
,usual.' All of us-whether we are farmers, or
wage earners or businessmen-must give up some
of the things we would ordinarily expect to have
for ourselves and our families. We are all in
this situation together. We must be prepared to
accept some reductions in our standards of liv-
Truman merely stated what the average indi-
vidual expects to do in times of stress. The thing
.he completely failed to mention was any retrench-
the government deeper into debt at the expense
of the people.
For instance, the Hoover survey showed that
the government owned 848,567 typewriters which
are being used by 235,000 persons. If something
like this turned up in a private business, 613,567
of the typewriters would be disposed of. But not
the government. It'll look around and employ
613,567 persons to run the idle, typewriters.
No, the president's talk lacked the ring of sin-
cerity when he failed to include government in
his 'demand for so-called "sacrifices" and "reduc-
tions in our standard of living.".,

Florida Farmers Are Optimistic
As Fall Season Gets Underway
Optimism and industry prevail
over the Florida agricultural scene
as the fall season gets underway.
With the exception of vegetable
growers, many of whom did not re-
ceive satisfactory returns from their
crops last winter and spring, farm-
ers and growers generally have
been pleased with the prices they
received for their crops, according
to reports to the University ofFlor-
ida agricultural extension service.
Bright leaf tobacco and citrus
growers were especially well satis-
fied with their crops of the past
season, as bright leaf brought the
highest average price in the his-
tory of the crop in Florida, and re-
turns from citrus during the 1949-
50 season were record-breaking.
Present good feeling among cit-
rus growers also is due to the big
crop on their trees, and the prospect
of satisfactory prices for the 1950-
51 season. The tropic storm early
this month blew off some grape-
fruit and probably caused scar dam-
age to some fruit, but the heavy
rains that came with the storm
'brought much-needed moisture to
'thirsty groves and more than coun-
terbalanced damage by wind.
Vegetables growers are planting
for late fall and winter production
and hoping that demand and prices
will be better during the coming
Most farmers have been pleased
with their peanut and corn crops,
harvest of which is continuing, but
grasshoppers caused severe losses
of peanuts in some counties.
Pigs are being turned into many
fields of peanuts and corn planted
for feed and for "hogging off." and
these porkers should be ready for
market in a few weeks.
Florida's upland cotton crop -
planted on about 30,000 acres is
not as good as farmers had hoped
for because of unfavorable weather
and the boll weevil, but prices be-
ing paid for cotton are relatively
high and make up to some extent
for reduced yields.
The improved pecan crop, rated
much better than last year's, is
coming along and the prospects are
still good in spite of many nuts hav-
ing been blown off by high winds
early this month.
As usual at this time of year, pas-
tures are much more fibrous and
less nutritious than they were a
month or so ago, but recent rains
have stimulated new growth and
much grass has greenedd up" con-
siderably during the past ten days.
Dairy farmers and beef cattlemen
are preparing land for fall plant-
ings of clover and temporary graz-
ing crops, such as oats and rye for
Land is also being prepared in

Labor might become a problem

to a reduced number of workers
during. the 1950-51 season.

The group voted to ditch the house
rules adopted in 1949 and go back
to those used in 1945, and also rec-
ommended repeal of Senate Mem-
orial 282, known as the "World

'of present world conditions.
The legislators were in general
agreement that millions more in
new taxes would be needed next
session, possibly as much as $65,..
000,000. Indications are that the
sales tax will be revised and a 2%
tax across the board adopted.
Changes in Florida laws to throw
more of the burden of public relief
on sons and relatives and help
check the rapidly rising cost to the
taxpayer were advanced.
It was also pointed out at the cau-
cus that new legislation is needed
that would permit better law en-.
torcement, and a committee is now
studying this problem.

O O ( J
Mr. Antharnaten, 4731 South
32nd West Ave., Tulsa 7, Okla-
homa, suffered from stomach
distress for quite some time.
He had spent much money
trying everything possible for
relief and was in bad health
when he started taking HADA-
COL. He says, "After taking
three bottles of the $3.50 size,
I've gained 27 pounds and now
eat anything I desire and posi-
tively have no trouble." (HAD-
ACOL gives such wonderful
results because it actually re-
lieves the REAL CAUSE of
stomach distress [gas pains,
heartburn, indigestion after
eating] due to such deficien-
cies. And continued use of this
great HADACOL helps prevent
such distress from returning.)
Mrs. Mabel Kitchen, 1650 Am-
sterdam, Cincinnati, Ohio. "Be-
fore I started taking HADA-
COL I had aches and pains of
neuritis in my shoulders, my
back and arms. I could hardly
move without having those
terrible pains. Then I heard
about HADACOL. After the
second bottle the pains and
aches were about gone. I'm
now starting my fourth bottle
and am on top of the world. I
eat well and, best of all, the
aches and pains are complete-
ly gone." (Mrs. Kitchen is a
very smart woman because she
relieves the REAL CAUSE of her
neuritis pains due to such de-
ficiencies. HADACOL often
brings a wonderful improve-
ment within a few days' time.)
IMPO TANT Why don't you get that wonderful
iHADACOL feeling everyone is talking
I about? In this modern age, wise folks
are no longer satisfied with sympto-
matic relief because now it's possible to relieve the CAUSE Of Such
deficiency sickness with that wonderful new HADACOL.
HADACOL not only supplies deficient systems with extra quantities of
Mrs. J. Scieszinski, 514 Kruger,
Ottumwa, Iowa, writes: "My
daughter, Marilyn Sue, is 5
years old and for some time
lacked pep, had a poor appetite,
was generally run-down. Since
giving her HADACOL, we have
noticed wonderful results .
she has a much better appe-
tite, eats everything on the
table and doesn't seem tired
like she used to. Incidentally,
she likes to take HADACOL,
too." (HADACOL is a great
'builder-upper' for sick, nerv-
ous, puny kids whose systems
lack precious Vitamins B1, B2,
Iron and Niacin. A big im-
provement in their well-being
is often noticed within a few
days' time after taking the
great new HADACOL.)
Mr. Henry Angel, RD No. 1,
Springfield, Ohio. "I used to
suffer great pain from neu-
ritis aches in all parts of my
body, especially in my legs,
arms and shoulders. I never
got any real relief until I tried
HADACOL. After taking sev-
eral bottles, my pain is all
gone. And I'm working evory
day." (Now there's a smart
man! Mr. Anoel took HADA-
COL and relieved thn mZAL
CAUSE of his neuritis pains
because they were due to
such deficiencies. HADACOL
is helping thousands upon
thousands of grateful men
and women troubled this way.
Why don't you give HADA-
COL a chance to help you?
Start taking it today!)
Vitamins B, B, Iron and Niacin but also helpful amounts of precious
Calcium, Phosphorus and Manganese-vital elements every human being
must have to maintain good health. You owe it to yourself to give
HADACOL a fair trial. Many doctors recommend this great new
HADACOL. It's sold on a strict money-back guarantee. Trial size, $1.25.
Large family or hospital size, $3.50.

One of the biggest problems fac-
ing housewives today' is the matter
of budgeting her food dollar. With
food prices steadily rising and the
prospect of having to economize
even more, we could all use a few
suggestions as to how to beat that
A main essential in bringing va-
riety as well as economy into your
meals is advance planning. You
will find that a little advance plan-
ning before you go marketing will
mean a substantial saving in both
time and money.
Before you start out to the store,
go through your cupboards and the
refrigerator to find what staples
are needed. After you have listed
the staples, make a general plan of
menus for a few days ahead. It is
always a good idea to check the
menus with the basic seven food
guide to be sure that all the essen-
tials for good nutrition are includ-
'ed. Then it is time to calculate the
cost to fit the budget.
You will find your food dollar go-
ing father than ever if you take the
time to build your menus around
foods grown right here in the Sun-
shine State. From appetizer to des-

sert you can prepare foods that will
perk up the most jaded appetities.
And best of all, you can achieve
this at very little cost, since our
perpetual Florida gardens keep us
supplied with a variety of new and
different products all year 'round.
With meat prices at a pinnacle,
the Florida housewife can find no
product more versatile and econom-
ical than fish and other seafoods.
There are hundreds of different
ways to prepare seafoods, and you
can serve them many times a week
without your family's appetite be-
As for the all-important vege-
tables in your menus-there isn't
any time of the year that the pro-
duce department isn't stocked with
a choice selection of nutritious veg-
etables. You can break the mon-
otony of vegetables by serving but-
ter sauces and creamf sauces made
zesty by the addition of mustard,
onion, horseradish, pimiento, garlic
-or, add cheese, chives, green or
ripe olives, and hard-cooked eggs
to these sauces and you'll be get-
ting requests for second helpings
instead of those groans.-
To round out your meals, don't
forget a plentiful supply of fruits-
not just the conventional oranges
and grapefruit either, but try some
of the exotic fruits, such as per-
simmons. mangos, guavas, and pa-
payas, to name a few.

Keep This Bulb Planting Depth Chart. It Will Be Helpful to You
Fall bulbs should never be plant-
ed in poorly drained locations. If
your garden is low, lacking a place
where water never stands, but al-
ways quickly runs or drains away,
then such a place must be created
by elevating a bed six inches or
more above the surface.
Remember that newly turned soil
settles; so heap it above the bulbs,
an inch or two, to avoid leaving a
depression when it packs down. The
depths of planting given in the ta-
ble may be considered minimums;
deeper planting may often be ad-
visable. One of the chief hazards
for all bulbs is "frost heaving,"
due to alternate freezing and thaw-
ing of the soil, which may lift shal-
low rooted plants out of the soil.
Bulbs planted so late they cannot
make roots in the fall are likely to
suffer from it; and large bulbs not
set deep enough will often be in-

bulbs after the ground has frozen

When it is intended to allow tulips
to remain where you plant them
several years rather than dig them
up after they have blossomed and
their leaves have turned yellow
each summer, they should be plant-
ed two or three inches deeper than
the normal depth.
Deep plating may cause flower-
ing to be somewhat later, so all
bulbs which it is desired shall blos-
som at the same time should be
planted the same depth.
The lilies which need deep plant-
ing (7 to 10 inches) are those that
make roots on their stems above
the bulb. The madonna il,. .-h;ch
does not do this, needs shal-
low planting, 3 to 4 inches down.
