Speaker Brings Story Two Injured As Scooter
Of Missionary Work In Hits Hog on Highway
Africa To Lochi Group
Bible Classes of Baptist Church
Hear Talk by Dr. Canning
By HARRY McKNIGHT
From far off Africa comes a mess-
age of Christian devotion that would
put many American Christians to
shame. It is a message of childlike
faith and love of God that has been
instilled in the hearts of a heathen
people by missionaries who have
been sent to heal their bodies and
help to save their souls by these
same American Christians.
"But why," someone asks, "must
people waste all that time and
money on illiterate and simple-
minded people who were meant to
be subservient and looked down
upon?" The answer is clear and di-
rect: Aside from the fact that these
heathen people possess a form of
culture and logic that is. amazing
to even the most learned, our Chris-
tian missionaries employ one of
Christ's best known admonitions,
"Inasmuch as ye have done it unto
one of the least of these, my breth-
ren, ye have done it unto me."
Dr. Harold Canning of Wewahit-
chka presented such a picture to a
fellowship gathering of 65 Baptists
at the Port St. Joe Baptist Church
Tuesday evening., After members
of the Royal Hearts women's class
and the men's Gideon Bible class
and their families enjoyed a buffet
'dinner on the church grounds, they
gathered in the basement to view
films and hear the lecture presented
by Dr. Canning, Baptist medical
missionary, who recently returned
from Nigeria, a British province lo-
cated on the underside of the bulge
of French West Africa, or some-
-What similar to the location of Wa-
kulla county in the Florida penin-
In a most intimate and appealing
way, Dr. Canning drew aside the
veil of mystery and unfolded to his
audience a story of a people who
are rapidly coming to know and
love the God of the white man with
a love that endures the hardships
of a primitive life and the pain of

April 12, 13, 14, 16
Offering from parterre planting of the nineties, modern dooryard gar.
dens emphasize beauty of the flowers, and not a pattern.
Homes, like those who live in
them, have personalities. Those
built in traditional architectural
styles are dignified, and formal in
appearance. Landscape architects
'used to tell us-that planting in the
front yards of these homes should
.be in harmony with this dignity. If
planting could be compared to cloth-
ing, then the house should face the
public in formal attire; /- ..
This sort of thinking put an end to
flower beds in front yards. They
were altogether too gay for their.
:sedate background. Would you
-dress for the street, as for a garden
party, or tennis game? .Then grow
:your flowers in the back yard, where
:you could wear sports, clothes, and
For front yards the fashion devel-
*oped of planting evergreens around
the high foundations which then
)prevailed, and this practice spread
through the country, where former-
ly evergreens had usually been seen
only in cemeteries.
A benefit of this fashion was that
it made us familiar with the variety
and beauty of evergreens, which are
love i in form and color, and green
-the year around, deserving of use
in gardens wherever they are lo-
But times change, and ideas with
-them. Traditional architectural
styles have given way to functional
design; millions of new homes have
now been built without a thought of
tradition. The attached garage, pic-
ture windows, breeze-way, and low
spreading ranch house construc-
'tion, produce a home unlike 'any
traditional style since Babylon.
The principle on which modern
architecture is based is that com-
fort and convenience in living are
more important than a dignified,
formal appearance to the passer-
by. The house, you might say, takes
off its frock coat and faces -the
world in a sports shirt, sometimes
wearing shorts. What sort of front
yard planting would be in harmony
with that sort of atmosphere?
Surely, not the same formal, dig-
nified treatment, that became com-
monplace in the last. generation.,
Not a foundation planting for a
house which has no visible founda-
tion; not dignified sedateness, where
the home expresses informality and
comfort. Yet because fashions are
often slow to change, many of these
homes'have been planted in an out-
moded, unsuitable manner, or what
is worse, have not been planted at
The solution of this problem which
is rapidly being accepted, is the
door-yard garden. This restores to,
the front yard the flower beds and
borders, which were there in the
Then, flowers were often used to
work out elaborate designs in beds
of geometric shapes. Modern door-
yard gardens are as simple as pos-
sible in design, in order to center
attention upon the beauty of the
flowers. These are grouped in
masses of one color, so arranged
that each mfas harmonizes with
and sets off the others, and all pro-
vide a pleasing decoration for the

'Legislators Receive Copies of Bill
To Make Publishing Subject
To State Regulation
Practically every member of the
Florida legislature has received a
copy of a bill to make newspaper
and magazine publishing subject to
state regulation-and all of them
are shying away from introducing
'such a measure.
The typed copies of the bill, sent
through the mail in plain envelopes
-with an Atlanta, Ga., postmark, had
no signature and were accompanied
by no letter. They appeared to, be
'modeled on one of three press con-
trol bills Gov. Herman Talmadge
attempted unsuccessfully to get
through the Georgia legislature.
The measure would declare 'the
newspaper, magazine and periodical
-publishing business to be "clothed
with a public interest and subject
-to regulation by the state."
The bill, in brief, reads: "If any
newspaper, periodical or magazine
published or circulated in this state
shall print or publish any article,
-news item, column or editorial,
charging any citizen of this state
with official or private misconduct,
or publish any such news item, ar-
ticle, editorial, column or other
matter critical of any such citizen,
such newspaper, magazine or peri-
odical shall publish on the same
page and in the same position and
in the same type, and under head-
lines of the same size, without cost
any denial, refutation, answer or
-explanation of any such charge pre-
or other misconduct."
The bill would provide a fine of
$1000 plus a penalty of $100 for

Our Country Right or Wrong
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Reprinted from the Washington County News
It appears that the editor of the Glen Ellyn,
Ill., News knew what he was talking about. He
said in a recent editorial that "letters to the editor
are becoming extinct." A
We had noticed that, too. The situation is
much the same everywhere. About "two dozen
home-town newspapers come across our editorial
desk each week. None of them carry any genu-
ine letters to the editor to speak of.
"It could mean," suggests the Illinois editor,
"that causes and effects are running so smoothly
that no commentary has been needed to point
out deficiencies and rough spots in local affairs."
We doubt this. In Washington county, with its
many groups of opposing viewpoints on various
public matters, certainly things don't always run
silk-smooth. In many cases, a citizen develops a
very strong opinion about this or that (such as
Fuller's fence law, the $1.00 pole fishing license,
or consolidation of small county schools), but it
just doesn't occur to him to write a letter about
it. He tells his friends that he thinks Fuller has
the wrong idea, or that he won't pay any dollar
to pole fish, or that he thinks closing up the
smaller schools is a wise, sensible plan. And he'll
even argue with anybody who disagrees with
him. But he usually lets it go at that.
As the Glen Ellyn editor says, when a reader
writes the editor, "many times the letter gives a
behind-the-scene coverage that a news story has
not included because of style restrictions. A more
personal tone is injected into the report of an
event by a letter to the editor."
"Letters to the editor let the editor and the
readers of the paper see which way the wind is
blowing in affairs of interest and importance,"
this Illinois editor concludes. "Few people can
bury their heads, ostrich-like, and turn their
backs on current events, nor should they hesitate
to publicize their convictions. It may take a few
minutes, but the results are rewarding."
For some time this situation has concerned us.
Perhaps some of our readers don't know this. But
we have the highest respect for a good, old-fash-
ioned, strongly-worded letter filled with horse
sense written to the editor.
With each passing day President Harry Tru-
man continues to demonstrate his lamentable
lack of ability to serve as the chief executive of
this nation. His shortcomings were not too dis-
astrous when the country was enjoying better
times. Today, however, with America facing a
very grim threat to its safety, it is doubtful if the
nation can much longer luxuriate in the presence
of a Missouri jackass in the White House instead
of a capable leader.-Ft. Lauderdale Daily News.

This requirement is contained in
the NSLI Act of 1940, as amended,
which stipulates that after dis-
charge, only those who had active
service between October 8, 1940,
and September 2, 1945, may be
granted new insurance.
This means that if a veteran's
first period of service began after
September 2, 1945, and he permits
his term policy to expire without
renewing or converting, he cannot
apply for new insurance unless he
re-enters active service.

January 1, 1946, expire eight years
from the date of issue. Term NSLI
policies issued on or after January
1, 1946, 'expire five years from the
date of issue.
These expiration periods are sig-
nificant for veterans whose first
period of service began after Sep-
tember 2, 1945, and who took out
term NSLI while in service. If they
took out their term policies before

nursery from which you order them'
is reliable and sells only inspected
and certified plants.
J. C. Goodwin, state plant board
nursery inspector, offers that sug-
gestion to all rural and city folks,
and his reasons for making it merit
the attention and consideration of
anyone who is thinking about buy-
ing nursery plants. First, he points
out, some Florida people have been
disappointed on "bargain" offers
of plants, and, second, buying
uninspected and uncertified plants
from out-of-state concerns may
result in bringing in a pest that is
not here now.
It is all right to buy plants from
concerns in other states, provided
the purchaser knows what he's get-
ting and the plants are inspected
and certified. There have been
cases, however, in waich buyers
ordered plants from other states
and received, legally speaking,
exactly the number and kinds they
ordered, yet they were very much
disappointed with what they got.
Fodr this reason, the plant board
inspector explains, the-buyer should
know about the concern selling
the plants and what to expect for
his money. If he doesn't know these
things, he is taking a chance on
being very much disappointed.
The purchaser also should be
sure the plants he orders from out
of the state will have a chance to
grow in Florida, as numerous
plants that grow fine in other
states do not do well here. If he
has any doubts about a particular
species, it is advisable for him to
see his county agent about it.
The reason-avoiding the dan-
ger of bringing pests into the state
-is highly important to the pur-
chaser and to the whole state.
Several plant diseases that are
present in some other states are
not in Florida, and the plant board
endeavors to bar these diseases
by inspection and certification, but
it needs the co-operation of others.
An inspected and certified plant
is free from such pests, but an un-
inspected and uncertified plant may
not be free of them.
Thus, the buyer who investigates
before he buys plants from out-of-
state nurseries is protecting his
own money and helping to protect
Florida crops from pests that are
not in the state now, Mr. Goodwin
Animal Disease Prevention
All efforts to stop the spread of
contagious animal diseases should
center on these three procedures:
(1) Immediately isolate sick ani-
mals from well ones. (2) Have the
trouble diagnosed without delay.
(3) After isolation quarters are va-
cated, thoroughly disinfect and air
them before occupancy by healthy

Bills Would Compel
Relatives To Aid In
Support of Kinfolks
First of Many Expected To Be Sub-
mitted To Lawmakers To Cut
State's Increasing Burden
Two measures, the first of many
anticipated, have been submitted to
the legislature to aid in lightening
the state's vast welfare burden.
One would serve to limit aid to
illegitimate children, and the other
provides for civil proceedings which
throw the entire burden of support
of the indigent upon financially-
The former law sets out the re-
sponsibility of the parents to chil-
dren, regardless of whether the par-
ent is a resident of the state, as
long as the other state has "sub-
stantially similar or reciprocal
laws." The bill is detailed in out-
lining the power of the courts and
the methods of inquiry and evi-
The latter, a proposed lien law,
simply provides that the real es-
tate of any welfare recipient who
dies is liable to lien by the state or
county, or both. But the lien can-
not exceed the amount which was
received as welfare. The lien would
not be enforceable on homestead
property during the lifetime of a

TO THE EDITOR
Dear Editor Bill-If my husband
is called upon to fight in another
global conflict, I shall hold Presi-
dent Truman personally account-
able for his safety!
He has removed the one man
whom I think is most capable of
instilling fear and respect into the
Chinese. Efforts to appease the
Communists will only encourage
their greedy aggression.
I should like to raise a loud cry
in protest to the actions of our pres-
ident in the removal of General
Douglas MacArthur, a brilliant and
indefatigable general who has ren-
dered an immeasurable service to
We need more than ever to in-
voke the blessings of our Maker
perilous guidance and
sagacity of President
Dear Bill-Thank you for your
letter of March 31, in which you ex-
pressed your views concerning cer-
tain proposed legislation. I appreci-
ate your taking the time to write
me expressing these views, as only
through this method do I know how
the people of Gulf county feel about
The bill for increasing the county
commissioners' salaries I under-
stand has been withdrawn, and if
the school board insists on their
salary increases I will certainly at-
tach a referendum to it which will
allow the people of Gulf county to
vote, and I am sure that it would
be .defeated overwhelmingly.
The small claims court bill I
plan to introduce, and I am sure
that it will pass.
I would appreciate it if you would
write me from time to time advis-
ing me of your thoughts on any
legislation you might be interested

vie J. Belser, George Tapper and
others providing for increases in
salary for the two circuit court
judges in the 14th judicial circuit
composed of Gulf, Bay, Calhoun,
Holmes, Jackson and Washington

presented the senate by Senator
Amos Lewis of Marianna.
The bill provides a salary of $10,-
000 yearly for each judge. The state
will continue to pay its present
amount of $7500, with the remain-
der being paid by the counties in
proportion to population.

SPEAKER BRINGS STORY
(Continued from page :1)
pestilence, whom- they consider it
a blessing to be able to sit on a
hard floor of clay or concrete,
wracked with pain, and worship
with fervor and complete faith.
Dr. Canning built his splendidly-
equipped hospital with Baptist mis-
sion funds in the land of the Ur-
hobo tribe, among whom he did
the most of his work, although
he named many other tribes with
which he became acquainted, such
as the Yourbas, Kwale Iboes, Ben-
ins, and the dreaded Hausea or
"There are more and more Bap-
tist hospitals being built in Africa,
but the surface has hardly been
scratched," concluded Dr. Canning.
"Never fear that your missionary
money is being wasted, for every
penny of it is being spent to the
very best advantage. Who can tell
but that these same primitive peo-
ple may some day be the ones to
carry the gospel of Christ for a civ-
ilized world that might well have
destroyed itself with atomic power?
These people thank you with their
hearts for helping to bring Chris-
tianity to them."
