maximum the end of the year. Since

created due to the appointment of
that number of enlisted men as flying
cadets. It is expected that several

fact that there is such a small number

who desire to join the air service. Any
man who desires to join should sub submit

The cadets referred to above are
now pursuing the regular pilot's or
flying course. Upon satisfactory com completion

become actual flyers, they will be giv given
en given a commission as second lieutenant
in the officers' reserve corps and may
be, at their own option, discharged
from the service or returned to their
previous enlisted grade.
The air service makes no promises
regarding a man's future His future
depends almost entirely upon himself.
The present policy is to give flying
training to those men who are phys physically,
ically, physically, mentally and morally qualified.
At present practically all of the flying
caoets were formerly regular enlisted
men. In addition, the air service
operates at Kelly Field a training
school for mechanics. The present
policy involves giving as many men as
possible this course of instruction,
which is most excellent.
Within a few years the air industry i
will be one of the largest in the world.
Those men who enter it now, in its
infancy, will, when it is developed be!
in a position to demand and receive
high salaries. The rise will be as
great as the automobile industry. All
one has to do is to note the rise of
the automobile men within the last
ten years. These men went in at the
beginning and are now at the top.
The same thing will happen in the air
industry. Now is the time to learn
the game. The best place to learn the
game is in the air service where, in
addition to having the opportunity to
learn the game, one is also being paid.
The grades are from private at $30 to
master electrician at $81. Men who
are actually doing work in the air re receive

In civil life every small plane will

Accompanied by Mr. W. D. Carn
county superintendent of schools, we
visited the high school building Thurs
cay noon. The lower grades being
dismissed, on account of the alarm
.about the flu, no classes were being
taught on the first floor so we went
on to. the second, where the high
school grades receive instruction. In
the hallway, we stopped to examine a
radiator. It was very warm, but not
so. warm that we couldn't keep our
hand on it. It was about as hot as
hot plate that you don't have to drop
. as soon as you pick it up, and that
radiator, which we suppose was a fair j
sample of the others in the building,
would not have warmed an ordinary
room on a cold day.
-'Thursday, in "comparison with the
four days preceding it, was pleasant.

along the hall they noticed that the
class rooms on the south side seemed
warm enough; the windows were up
and the sun shining in and the teach teachers
ers teachers and scholars seemed comfortable.
A brief stop was made at the study hall.
It was fairly well filled with scholars,
and the reporter, stepping inside for a
, minute, to make an estimate of the
temperature, calculated that with his
heavy winter clothes on he could read
or study in it in moderate comfort,
but it didn't seem as warm as it should
be for the young people who had to

he met and spoke to several of the

could stand it as lone as the others
could, and others said they Were not

'Principal Hensley was found in his
omct. He said Monday was a bitter
day; but made no complaint of the two
days following. Probably that was
just because he didn't want to com
plain, for Tuesday was a much colder
day than Monday, and while Wednes Wednesday
day Wednesday was not as cold as either Monday
or Tuesday it was a day of cold rain.
A number of the scholars had told the
Star man Wednesday that they were
very cold and miserable on that day,
being partly wet when they arrived at
school, and the heating apparatus
working worse than usual, or not at
all. These scholars are not children,
but boys and girls of sixteen years or
more, and the Star man has known
them long enough to know they are
sensible and reliable. Of testimony on
the other side we have not heard a

nace. furnace. The regular man was off, and
his brother, T. D. Whiteman, was at attending
tending attending to the work. Mr. Whiteman
feaid the heating apparatus was in bad
shape. He had not worked with it
long' 'enough to find out whether it
needed repairs or to be mended with
an entirely new outfit. He said the
fires were lit at 5 a. m., soon enough
to heat up the entire house if the fur furnace
nace furnace and pipes were in good order. As
proof they were not, he said that
often after the fires had been burning
or hours some of the pipes would be
hot and others cold. Mr. Whiteman
comes from up north and says he is
well acquainted with steam heating
apparatus. As the reporter and Mr.
Carn started for their car, they saw
a lot of oak wood piled up by the door
next to the furnace room. This is
good fuel for a fireplace after it gets
to burning, and about the worst that
can be had to put under boilers. If
he school has to depend on such fuel,
it3 no wonder the furnace won't func-
Another thine worthy of notice
was that on the north side of the
building, and in its shadow, the tem
perature was several degrees more
chilly than in the sun a few yards
away. About the time Mr. Cam and
the reporter left the square, the ther
mometer on the Court Pharmacy
corner registered 60 degrees and the
temperature was pleasant. We don't
know what the temperature was on
the north side of the school but it was
very perceptibly lower than down
town, and must have been felt in the
study hall and the other rooms on that
The primary school children also
have their hardships. Their building
is better constructed and more easy
to heat than the high school building.
The fire in the primary furnace build
ing is lighted some time in the early
morning, and then left to take care of
itrelf. When the teachers and pupils
arrive at nine o'clock the fire general
ly has died down, and the principal
has to marshal a crowd of the biggest
boys, go down in the basement and
build it up again. Meantime, if it is
a chilly, rainy day, the children who
h&xe wet feet have to huddle around
the tepid radiators for half an hour
or more. The primary school is much
better built than the high school, and
the heating apparatus in better shape,
and the principal trouble with it
seems to be lack of attention.
Superintendent Carn says it is a
mistake to suppose the county is too
hard up to remedy these evils. He
says that while the county board is
hard-pressed for money, it could have
made some arrangement to prevent so
much suffering among the children if
it had known in time.
Our short winter is almost over, but
there will be a number of chilly days
yet. Something should be done at
once to insure the children from be being
ing being punished for going to school.
It is the Star's opinion that while it
is impossible to make any extensive
repairs at the high school during the
present term, that the scholars should
not be allowed to suffer in the dis disagreeable
agreeable disagreeable days we are bound to have
before permanent warm weather sets
in. There is no necessity for any ex
traordinary measures to be taken to
insure this. The district trustees
should instruct the teachers to im
mediately send home any child who
comes to school cold and wet and can't
be immediately put in a comfortable
room. And if there are any more cold
days and the heating apparatus
doesn't work, school should be dis
missed for that day. It is much less
harm for any child to miss a few les
sons than to be taken down sick and
We don't suppose our advice will be
taken on this subject. We have
never yet made a suggestion about the
evils that afflict our schools without
being informed that remedy was im
possible because of the law, red tape,
lack of funds or some other reason
more important than the health or
Wie of a child or its parents' ability to
pay doctors' bills and taxes. We are
glad to say, however, that we have
found in Superintendent Carn a man
who seems to understand these things
and think more of the health of the
children and the pockets of the tax taxpayers

display. Rogers and Wilson are large largely,
ly, largely, if not entirely, responsible for
what he has with him this year.
In the very center is a series of
small pyramids of pineapple oranges
from the original pineapple orange
tiee at Citra. While the genial col colonel
onel colonel was talking to us a lady came up
and asked, "What kind of oranges are
those?" And on being told, replied,
"They are the prettiest oranges I have
ever seen since coming to Florida."
"That's what they all say." he told us
and there is a reason. The pineapple
oiange is certainly one of the state's
best bets and it is surely king in the
picsent fair. But Marion is far from
being only a citrus county. It boasts
diversified farming and stock raising
and has much to show along these
lines. Several hundred pounds of na
tive-cured hams and bacon decorate
the walls of the booth and there are
no less than eighteen varieties of hay,
thirty-six varieties of grain and peas,
five varieties of potatoes and five
varieties of peanuts, four different
kinds of oats and six varieties of
ground feed. There are exhibits of
long and short staple and Sea Island
cotton and cotton sed and twenty-four
kinds of green vegetables.
Nuts grow up there, too. Jim has
jarr of pecans, hickory nuts, black
walnuts, chestnuts and even the old
boyhood favorite, the "Chinquapin."
For those who do not know what a
"chinky" is, we would state it is a nut
looking like an acorn, but which grows
on a dwarf chestnut tree and is sweet sweeter
er sweeter than lasses candy.
Monster guavas looking as big as
avocadoes and of all colors adorn his
display and there are some of the
finest stock beets one could wish and
wihch are going to be, according to
the colonel, one of Florida's greatest
feed crops in a few years.
We thought we saw alfalfa but were
afraid to ask, thinking it would only
show up our ignorance. Finally we
hedged, "This isn't alfalfa, is it?"
"Why, of course it is and fine al alfalfa,
falfa, alfalfa, too."
"And how much hay to the acre
does it bear down here?"
"That I couldn't say because we

Colonel Howell then told us of the
number of silos in Marion county and
of its future progress along the line
of live stock development but we flag

Some of the finest corn in the whole

the only real honest to goodness holly
berries are there too, as well as a fine
showing of native grown tobacco, cane
syrup, artichokes, chufas, dasheens

No use worrying, however, because it isnt that way. Be glad that

Reports immediately following the
scrimmage between Jeffres and Evans
Sunday night were to the effect that
the Greek had used the big knife with
which he cuts bread and slices meat
on his opponent. The Star is inform informed
ed informed on good authority that Jeffres cut
Evans with his own knife. An eye eyewitness
witness eyewitness says, so we are told, that
Evans drew his wife and attacked the
Gieek, who was cutting bread. Jeffres
dropped his knife, grappled Evans,
took his kife away from him and
slashed him with it. This view is
borne out by the fact that the Greek's
lrnife is a big one and if he had used
it on Evans the latter would have
been worse wounded if not killed.
Evans is almost able to leave the

from his wounds. The Star regrets
to note there is a prejudice among
some people againts the Greek simply
because he is a Greek. This is unfair
and un-American. The old man has
behaved himself very well since he has
been in Ocala and has as much right
to self-protection and legal protection
as any other man.
