IT MAY PLAY HOB WITH COURT'S
RULINGS, BUT IS THAT SO BAD?
(From The Washington County News)
A soft-spoken, mild-mannered man from
Marianna might have lighted the fuse here last
week to a legal time bomb that has been dor-
mant for nearly a century. The speaker was
James A. Ormond, insurance man, Sunday School
teacher and former banker and educator.
What he had to say, we believe, should fore-
shadow some test cases in the United States
Supreme Court. It will be the basis, we believe,
for some new legal research. It, no doubt, will
send historians into the musty and almost for-
gotten files of libraries and private collections
in search of more facts.
Ormond's attack was well-documented. It
was directed at something most of us have re-
garded, next to the Bible and the Declaration of
Independence, as the most important document
in the world. It was directed .at the legality of
certain sections of the Constitution of the United
States. Mentioned specifically are the 13th, 14th
and 15th amendments. Those were the amend-
ments that freed the slaves, made them citizens
and gave them the right to vote.
He maintains that the last two of these were
forced into the constitution illegally. He offered
evidence to prove his contention. The 13th
amendment, he said, was submitted to all the
states that had not seceded from the Union dur-
ing the War Between the States. Their legisla-
tures refused to give it the required three-fourths
majority. Then it was submitted to the legisla-
tures of the defeated Southern States. They,
naturally, approved it unanimously. That's the
only way it could be passed.
All that was done before the end of 1865.
The Negroes were not then citizens. The Su-
preme Court had ruled that they were not in its
famous Dred Scott Decision, That decision was
handed down several years earlier. They could
only become citizens by the adoption of another
amendment to the Constitution.
This the Congress set out to do but neither
the House nor the Senate could muster the neces-
For 88 years its validity has been "assumed."
Yet, it was never legally submitted or adopted.
The Northern states refused to ratify it by the
required majority. The Southern States unani-
mously rejected it. Congress then disfranchised
Southern whites and established Negro rule. The
Southern state legislatures then ratified it but
not enough Northern states did to make a three-
fourths majority. The 15th Amendment also
failed of adoption. Neither -became law."
The man from Marianna may have some-
thing there. Government by fraud should be
condoned longer. The Supreme Court should
be asked to rule on -the validity of the amend-
ments without delay. Then, if and when the
amendments are found to be unconstitutional,
they should be properly passed and submitted
to the state legislatures for legal ratification.
This, of course, would neutralize or effectively
delay some of the Supreme Court's more extreme
decisions on segregation. But would that be

'It came about when Lee Eshle-
man, a Detroit pastor, visited Flor-

was no Bible conference grounds
in !South Florida. He was advised
that the price of land suitable for
such a project was prohibitive.
During the war, the Army had
maintained a base at Boca Raton
where a 30-acre portion was occu-
pied by two large buildings, each
a spacious entertainment center for
officers and enlisted men built at
a cost of $3.28,000.
Abandoned at the close of the

To Pay For Census
Age Check Ups
WASHINGTON (Special)-A bill
introduced in the U. S. House of
Representatives this week by Con-
gressman Bob ,Sikes would provide
that the federal government pay
the cost of census age searches for
applicants for old .age assistance
who have no proof of their age and
who are unable to pay the cost of
To be eligible for old age assis-
tance an applicant must, among
other things, submit proof that he
or she is 65 years old. In many in-
stances this proof does not exist
and the applicant does not have the
minimum $3.00 fee which is charg-
ed by the Bureau of the Census for
searching its records and furnishing
a statement of the age reported for
an individual when early censuses
: were taken.
The iSikes bill provides that when
a state welfare agency submits an
*application on 'behalf of an aged
person who is unable to pay the
fee himself and pays the cost of a
census age search, 'the federal gov-
ernment will reimburse the state
agency on a quarterly basis for all
money so spent. This would be in.
addition to the amounts prescribed
to be paid to the state under Title
"1 bt th t Social Security Act.
'It has. been my -experlence,"0
Sikes, stated, "that many, aged peo-
pie have been denied old age assis-
tance because they could not prove

That they were 65 yans old. A large
percentage of applicants must de-
pend upon records of the Bureau
of the Census for that proof, and
when they don't have the required
$3.00 fee the door is closed to them.
I feel that the federal government
should include this benefit in 'the

Know How Long it Takes
Flower Seeds To Sprout
Cosmos takes 5 days. Portulaca takes 10 days.
Flower seeds differ greatly in
the time they take to germinate.
Unless you know when to ex-
pect tiny sprouts to appear
where seed was sown, it is easy
to lose patience, and give the
sowing up as a failure.
Varieties which have the repu-
tation of being "difficult" may
only be slow germinators; and
the skill required to grow them
a question of knowing how long
to wait, so when they do appear
they will not have been aban-
doned. Flowers which germi-
nate quickly are most popular
for sowing directly in the gar-
Among those which should
germinate in 5 days are: Agera-

mignonette, four-o-clocks, Vir-
ginia stocks, viscaria, a..d zin-
When, in addition to quick ger-
mination, a flower has large seed
and colorful blossoms, it is
bound to be widely grown and

The small seeded, slow germ-
inators are as easy to grow as
the fast o .; if they are started
in a seed box. Success may even
be surer, because of reduced
hazards. But it helps to know
how long you must wait for
the sprouts to appear, as it en-
ables you to sow varieties of
