might say, it brought one of the
biggest laughs in the show.
And, of course, it is common

drain on the treasury of the Ameri-

We are frankly in a delima as to who to
vote for for Governor of the State of Florida.
Both the major contenders, Collins and
Warren have marks both for and against them.
The other three, we know nothing about other
than the little we have seen in the daily press.
Both Collins and Warren made good gover-
nors, and we believe that it will be between
these two as to who our next Governor will be.
We weren't in the State of Florida while
Fuller was governor but it was quite obvious
that quite a few roads were built and the cows
were fenced up to keep from killing motorists.
And then on his debit side, we understand
he made a campaign promise to veto a sales
tax measure. Well, he didn't, even though we
believe he could have vetoed it and the bill
would still have passed it. We are for the sales
tax, because it keeps the -tax structure of Florida
very low in comparison with the rest of the na-
tion and this is a definite asset toward attracting
residents and industry to the state.
Collins, we believe has made a good gov-
ernor during his short term in office. He has
put fhe operation of the state on a business-like
basis and pulled many of the kinks out of the

From the Houston ( Herald,
Dothan, Alabama: Men of reason
and common sense, dedicated to
the idea of seeing that everybody
gets a square deal-will tell you
that there are never less than two
sides to an issue-like the racial
problem facing us today. Men
devoted to the task of preserving
freedom and the equality for all
races, colors and creeds in this
country-are the first to observe-
and to urge us to observe-both
sides carefully and without preju-
The south must take the lead in
looking at THE OTHER SIDE of
this problem-even in the face of
charges on insincerity- which no
doubt will be made. The danger
lies in those radical elements of
both parties-who, while devout anid
sincere themselves in what they
are doing-let their emotion be-
come a powder keg which can
fan a spark into an out-of-control
conflagration. This must never
happen for many reasons.
This newspaper urges every-
one to stop a minute-and give
thought to the issue. Search your
heart-ask yourself-what do I real-
ly believe here? How do I feel about
integrating the races-right here-
in Alabama-in my home town-in
my school? '
The answer must come from you.
This newspaper cannot answer it-
any more than the nine nine men who
make up our supreme court. The
decision is now in your hands sz''.r
it rightly belonged from the o s. -
ning.. You are perhaps thi s"
people the world has knovr wef
both the power and capability n.:
governing yourselves. '
Certainly, today, our enemies '
communists are watching us nare-
fully for signs of inner turmoil auf
weakness. The avowed purpose af
-'ur enemies is to first divide us,
then weaken us, enslave us- awro
then destroy us.
This is reason number one wvy
we must resolve this race issue
quickly-and without a minimum
of fuss among' ourselves.
While it goes without repeating
that we have enemies in the world
-thankfully, we have friends also.
And they too are observing us
carefully, anxiously. For never
before in the world's history has
freedom been so perilously close
to eclipse. Without the support of
this nation-freedom would die
before tomorrow's sun-except
in men's hearts. t
Today after two great con-
flicts-and concerned as we are
with the daily struggle of making
a living, we find it rather easy to
just sort of drift with the tide-
making only token objections to
the principles and ideas which
we know aren't quite right-but
we let them pass-vowing to look
after them tomorrow.
* This attitude will no longer suf-
fice if freedom ih to live.

SFrom where I sit... y Joe Marsh
I was reading the other day
how a person can get all sorts of
things just by dialing a number
on his telephone.
In New York you can get the
time, the weather, or a prayer.
In Philadelphia it's the stock re-
ports. In Boston a voice tells bird
watchers what's to be watched
in the park.
Over in Europe, they go fur-
ther. Vienna offers a five-minute
fairy tale for kids. In Switzer-
land you can get the news in any
of three languages. And a couple
of places have "talking menus"
for desperate housewives.
On The Line"
From where I sit, it doesn't
matter if ideas are put out by
telephone, through -editorials, or
in person-as long as we can take
them or leave them. I happen to
like a glass of beer with my sup- -
per. You may prefer coffee, tea or
branch water. Well, there's no
harm in "listening" to another's
opinions ... but if he should try
to force them on you, it's always
an American's privilege to sim-
ply "hang up!"

BY RUSSELL KAY
We are aware of Florida's grow-
ing cattle industry, her expanding
agricultural and industrial develop-
ment and ever increasing tourist
business, but we have heard little
about a new and rapidly expand-
ing industry that promises another
eta rin Florida's crown.
When a Florida bred race horse
stepped out at Hialeah recently and
won the biggest race of the seas-
on, lomping across the finish line
to win the $148,000 Flamingo, 33,-
289 spectators and 23 million tele
vision viewers went wild. This re-
markable horse, Needles, was foal-
ed aud raised near Ocala and to-
day is the favorite to win the race
of races, the Kentucky Derby. De-
velopment of this champion horse
is a direct affshoot of Florida's have made a mighty good start

James H. Bright, pioneer Flori- Today there are 31 farms in Mar-
da rancher and long time member ion, Dade, Broward, Pinella, High-
of the 'State Livestock Sanitary lands and Duval counties. There
Poard, has always had a keen in- are 33 stallions and 199 mares. A
terest in the speed, soundness and total of 74 two-year-olds, ready to
courage of bhe native Florida cow race, were registered with the Flo-
pony. He became interested in rac-
ing in the late 19,20's and early
1930's and became ambitious to
breed a champion Florida horse.
Considering the traits and charac-f y
ter of the Florida raised cow pony
he reasoned that if Florida climate
water and soil could produce them
in the cow pony it could do the
same for a thoroughbred.
In 1935, r. 'Bright acquired a son
of an Q' War to stand in Broward
County and there in 1936 was foal-
ed the first Florida bred race horse
of modern times, Martha's Queen.
In 1939 Martha's Queen won $675.
Five years later the winnIng of
Cracker horses totalled $12,260.
Then things began to hum. Florida
horses were showing their stuff
and in the year 1946 they won $66,-
810 and it jumped to $188,072 in
1949. By 1953 the winnings of Flo-
rida horses had jumped to $539,673
and last year to more than $700,000
When Bright first began to talk
enthusiastically about the breed-
ing and training race horses in
Florida, the breeders of the nation
gave him a razzing he has never
forgotten. They told him that "Flo-
rida might be alright for breeding
alligators or rattlesnakes, but cer-
tainly not race horses."
Although race horse breeding in
Florida is a small operation in
comparison to activities in Mary-
land, Kentucky, Virginia and Cali-
fornia and even New Jersy, we

Munn and family, Mr. and Mrs.
Chris Martin and Mr. and Mrs.

horse farm today is Rosmere and
Dicley Stables, the former home of
Needles, winner of the famed Fla-
mingo. Other fine farms are being
heard from and florida bred horses
are holding their own with the
Enthusiastic Needles fans came
up with a Needles song to the tune
of "We Are The Boys From Old

singing it with gusto.
