PEOPLE SHOULD KNOW
THEIR FIRE PLUGS
Fire Chief Chambers asks the Star
to impress on the people the necessity
of their learning the number, of their
nearest fire plugs. In an alarm sent
in late Saturday afternoon, the num
ber of the plug given was 14, when it
should have been 114. Fourteen is on
the east side of town and 114 on the
west. The fire was luckily a small one
and the firemen were able to put it
out without much damage in spite of
the delay, but such a mistake in a
bigger blaze might have resulted in

National Food Administrator Appre Appreciates

ple People of Marion County
Mr. Clarence Camp, federal food
administrator for Marion county, has
received the following letter:
U. S. Food Administration,
Washington, May 4.
Clarence Camp, Esq.,
- Marion County Food Administrator.
Dear Mr. Camp: We have your let letter
ter letter of April 30, 1918, enclosing copies
of resolutions passed Ty the citizens
of Marion county, Florida," and desire
to have you express to them the sin-
il. i .r it. -C J 1 j
tion for their patriotic action.
We are very glad to have all per persons
sons persons who can do so without too great
hardship forego the use of wheat un until
til until next harvest. Such a program, as
you know, must be adopted on a pure purely
ly purely voluntary basis and with the full
understanding that people making
this sacrifice are doing more than wt
can expect from the population of the
United States at large. People in
large cities or where substitutes are
not plentiful could not follow such a
program. We make thi3 explanation
to avoid any danger of disappoint disappointment
ment disappointment to these patriotic citizens who,
after pledging abstinence from
wheat, hear that it is still being used
in other parts of the country and pos possibly
sibly possibly in other counties in Florida. We
also wish to point out that the same
definition of wheatless should be fol followed
lowed followed that has been given for "wheat "wheat-less"
less" "wheat-less" days and meals, namely, the use
of no wheat or wheat products what whatsoever
soever whatsoever except the small quantity of
flour needed as a binder in cooking
and except for the portion of flour
permitted in Victory bread or in quick
breads under the bakery rule. The
adoption of a program which would
make it impossible for bakers to sell
Victory bread would put them out of
business, which would be unfair to
the bakers and a serious loss to the
community itself since, in the long
run, the bakers must be relied upon to
furnish an important portion of the
peoples' food. If there are very few
commercial bakers in your county,
this is not particularly important, but
we believe it better that a uniform
practice should be followed in any
'event, since it is imperative that
bakers who supply large centers of
population be not put out of business
by depriving them of all markets for
their products. In the adoption of
bakers' rules, we went just as far as
seemed advisable in directly limiting
the baker's use of flour, and we do
not think it is fair to them to go ap appreciably
preciably appreciably further indirectly by ac accepting
cepting accepting voluntary pledges that would
in effect deprice bakers of any op
portunity t6 market their products.
We feel that it is important, in
adopting any pledge of this kind, that

CITY SHOULD BUY BONDS

Editor Star: I commend you for
your patriotic suggestion that the city -authorities
of Ocala invest the' idle
bond sinking fund in Liberty Bonds
or in war saving stamps. There is no
good reason why this should not be
done. I note that our sister town
Lake City has invested its $5000 sink sinking
ing sinking fund in Liberty Bonds; that Live
Oak has invested her $10,000 sinking
fund in Liberty Bonds, and other
cities and towns of the state have
done likewise. The citizens of Ocala,
both male and female, by their untir-;
ing efforts, by their ready response to
every call and their willingness to
loan their uninvested cash to our
government to help win the war, have
proved themselves to be the equal in
patriotism to the very best in all Flor Florida.
ida. Florida. I am glad to have the honor to be
a citizen among such people. If we
have, a3 has been said, $10,000 cash in
the city sinking fund, that amount
will buy over $12,000 worth of war
savings stamps that will mature Jan.
1, 1923. Then the government gives
the purchaser the interest in advance
that the interest may be invested in
more stamps to draw interest. Only
one thousand dollars worth of stamps
will be sold to one person (this to
guard the rights of the man with
limited means and not allow the rich
to gobble up all the war savings
stamps) but as the government needs
the money for war savings stamps,
each bond trustee could buy in trust
for the city $1000, each councilman
$1000, the mayor $1000 and the banks
could be designated to buy in trust
for the city. All thi3, I think, could

is greater than the supply. Therefore, when you refrain from buy buying

The Star-Spangled Banner
Oh, say can you see, by the dawn's
What so proudly we hailed at the
twilgnt's last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars,
thro' the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were
so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs
bursting in air,
Gave proof thro' the night that our
flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled ban banner
ner banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the
home of the brave?
Maxwelton's braes are bonnie,'
Where early fa's the dew,
And 'twas there that Annie Laurie
Gi'ed me her promise true,
Which ne'er forgot will be,
And for bonnie Annie Laurie,

Our hearts in Christian love;
The fellowship of kindred minds

Our comforts and our cares.
We share our mutual woes,
Our mutual burdens bear;
And often for each other flows
The sympathizing tears.
My country! 'tis of thee,
Sweet lard of liberty,
Of thee I sing:
Land where my fathers died!
Land of the pilgrims' pride!
From ev'ry mountain side
Let freedom ring!
Our fathers God! to Thee,

To Thee we sing:
Long may our land be bright
With freedom's holy light;
Protect us by The might,
Great God, our King.
God save our splendid men,
Bring them safe home again.
God save our men.
Make them victorious, noble and chiv chivalrous,

A DOLLAR WASTED HELPS THE ENEMY
That is not a loyal thing to do, of course, and few of us realize
that we are helping the enemy when we waste money. Pretty hard
to define what waste is. One man's waste may be another man's
economy. In a general way, waste in war time may be defined as the
buying of anything not essential to health and efficiency. Every
dollar one spends for unnecessary things commands goods and ser services,
vices, services, that is, labor and materials, needed by the United States Gov Government
ernment Government for war purposes. And, if you invest the money you save
in War Savings Stamps, you are again helping by loaning your mon money
ey money to your Government.
