The Tampa Times, the most able
opponent of the idea in the state,
savs: -V-
"The question of a uniform for

cities. There are many things to be
said in its favor, as well as some se sections
ctions sections objections. Unquestionably it
would put all the girls pi the school

on an equal footing so far as apparel
goes, provided the quality of all the
uniforms was prescribed; it would re relieve

and worry of fitting the girl out for
school; and it would do away with
much of the envy and jealousy in inevitable

her? schoolmates better and more
fashionably clad than she can afford
to be. The uniform would take the
girl's mind away from the frivolities
and fripperies of fashion, and allow
more time for the serious work of
getting an education. So far, so good.
On the other hand, there are many
parents in moderate circumstances, on
whom the providing of extra school
uniforms for one or two or more
daughters, as the case might be,
would be a burdensome, and seem seemingly
ingly seemingly unnecessary tax; If they pro provide

be out of place at church, or any so social

high cost of living, would not be a
welcome proposition. Many such
families 1 already have their girls "fit "fitted

means will allow, and to invest in a

Again, the feminine mind naturally
turns to personal adornment. The

A Happy Medium
. It does not take a very close study
of the two articles ; to see that they
agree in many things.
The ladies of Miami or elsewhere
can count on the Star to sustain them
in any attempt to add to simplicity
and decrease of expense in dress. We
think, however; that it should all be
left to the pressure of public opinion.
There is a strong; sentiment in the
state against school teachers wearing
a distinctive i uniform, and of course
what would be wrong for the teachers
wouldn't be Tight for; the students. ;
It seems to the Star that there is
a happy medium. Good taste as well
as convenience demands that school
girls dress simply. For. a girl to go to
a school room dressed like she would
be dressed for a party is unbecoming,
and if her, parents havent the good
sense I and influence to prevent her
doing so, her teachers and, the other
girls have ways of "showing their dis disapproval
approval disapproval that would soorf cause1 her to
see the error of her way.
: As for the "middy blouses," etc.,
some girls look all right in a middy
blouse and some do not. If it
right for a girl to wear clothes that
make her look like a peacock, neither
is it right to make her wear any that
make her look like a goose A great
many girls do not play tennis and
some can't go on a hike. It is a sign
of good sense for any girl to wear
low heels, in school or elsewhere, but
there is no law to make her do so.
A man is always biased by his en environment,
vironment, environment, and so we have written
from an Ocala standpoint. Simplicity
and good taste prevail in the" Ocala
schools, and the girls with few ex exceptions
ceptions exceptions dress in the most becoming
manner.' We don't think we -would
like to see them all dressed alike.
Girls heed individuality in their
clothes much more than men do. If
they and their mothers adhere to the
rules of common sense and goo4
taste, no other uniformity will be
needed. r

If we continue to have a heavy,
beating rain almost every day or two,
as we have had for the past few, the
cotton problem will not worry our
farmers and ginners much longer. v
We hope the Star's first page heads
were fiat enough yesterday to suit the
Times-Unionx paragrapher. It might
surprise him to know the page was
made up with about half the time and
trouble it would have taken if dis display

Ocala needs a band. No normal city
is without a band. The possession of
a band marks the difference between
a city and a tank town., Of course
some public-spirited tank towns have
bands, but no really, 5 truly city is
without one.
Ocala has a band a feeble, strug struggling,
gling, struggling, patriotic, discouraged band,
one feeling much more like a hen
caught out in the rain than like a
lark, which is how a band ought' to
feel. Our band will feel like a lark
and make a noise like one if we take
it in out of the wet. :n

a clever musician, now making his

every week to lead and instruct our
forlorn little band of a band. He has

During the past three weeks a
number of my friends have stated to
me that a report is being circulated
that I am going to leave Ocala and
move to Jacksonville. At first the
idea of such a move on my part seem seemed
ed seemed so absurd that I cast it aside as
one would a joke, but after a number
of friends approached me, the matter
has taken on a different phase and I
feel that in justice to my friends, my
business and myself, that I should
take this method of correcting the
absolutely groundless report. Such a
move has never once entered my
mind and to me it seems would be a
more than foolish move. Why should
I think of leaving Ocala? I find no
answer to the question, while on the
other hand I see every reason why I
should remain here my native home,

tlon has estimated that the world
shortage created by the light! crop of
1917-1918 Is at least three and a half
million ton,
That the 1917-1918 crop of cane sug sugar
ar sugar was two million tons In excess of
the previous year does not relieve the
general shortage.
Cuba and Java produce one-half of
the world cane crop, and the Java sug sugar
ar sugar Is too far removed from America to
transport when shipping is badly need needed
ed needed to transport and maintain the mili military

In Java a large part of the old sugar
crop is1 still awaiting shipment Since
it requires 150 to 160 days for each
boat that is sent to Java, the possibili possibilities
ties possibilities of obtaining adequate shipments
of Java sugar this season are remote.
Allies' Production Falls.

production Is less by one-third than the

per, cent of-the pre-war average.
For the five years preceding the out outbreak

Mr. and Mrs. Joe Lyons have re received

He was one of the gunners with the

"Second I escaped unscratched.
"Third I received my first mail
since I have been here today.
"Fourth Last, but surely not -the
least, I received my cables.
"I know it sounds awfully peculiar
to start a letter home in this way, but
I am doing it to warn you that it is
going to be a long one. Soon after I
wrote my last letter I was released
from the hospital, and on' this occas occasion
ion occasion I can tell you what was wrong
with me was merely that I got hold of
some gassed water which burned the
lining and membrane' from my throat
and stomach.9 For two weeks I was
unable to swallow anything at all.
For one month I was confined to my
bed.. As you know, I was in a French
hospital. I will say that they kept me
in bed by the, simple expedient of tak taking
ing taking my clotnes away from me and
substituting merely a short pajama
shirt that came to my waist. : Now,
thank the Lord, I am as fine as a fid fiddle

"No doubt you have read in the pa papers
pers papers about the wonderful work the
marines' have done in stopping and
driving back the Hun. I w2s lucky
enough to be discharged from the hos hospital
pital hospital in time to join my company just
after they Jiad moved up. I have
heard old-timers talk about the civil
war battles jalso the wonders of
fights of, former times have been re recounted
counted recounted to me time after time, but if
it had anything on this scrap, it was
going some. This was the real open
warfare, fought in the fields "sown
with grain and almost ready to be
mowed.. You tcan tell everybody who
tasked me. to get. a Boche for them
that I have done it and still have
enough scalps left to paper a room
in the kaiser's palace. Our machine
guns just mowed them down by the
hundreds, but after all is said and
done, we have to hand it to the Marine
Infantry. They chased the Germans
alolig their, whole front with cold
steel, and if there is one thing the
enemy can't,; stand it is the bayonet.
They always surrender or run when
we start, at them with it. s In hand-to-hand
fighting" they are a pack of cow cowardly
ardly cowardly curs. It is only wheir the odds
are five to one or so that they will
stand. ... -K v : l
"I believe that 'the common garden
variety of mole is considered the fast fastest
est fastest digger in the world. If anyone
dares to tell you that again,, tell them
they belong back in prehistoric ages.
When we first came up the enemy ar artillery
tillery artillery started to shell us with what
we call 'hell-by-heavies.' There we
were out in the open, no shelter,
shrapnel, high explosive shells, gas
and machine guns from the enemy
breaking all around us. The only
thing to do was to dig in at least a
couple of feet in the ground and pro protect
tect protect yourself as best you could. You
know we always carried little shovels
and picks which we thought were use useless,
less, useless, but when the shells started to
fall we found ample use for them. In
fact, it was a common sight to see
fellows digging little" holes to sit in
with helmets ahd mess pans.
"If a man had wanted to lug sou souvenirs,

most of the fellows threw away eve-t
rything but their masks, -gats and

"There is one thing in particular I
have forgotten to mention. It is the
feeling a man has under intense fire.
I have not taken this idea from my myself
self myself alone, but also from the expres expressions
sions expressions of opinion of a good many other
fellows. When a soldier is charging
acress an open field, there is one
thing that flashes through his brain
like a livid streak, 'the Lord is the
only one who can protect me.' You
remember how the elevated trains
sound when you are standing under underneath
neath underneath them and hear, an express go
by. Just' multiply the speed consid considerably
erably considerably and imagine the accompanying
whine of a big shell. Then imagine
that the road ceases abruptly near
you and explodes with a violence and
concussion of ton of dynamite and
you have something of the sensation.
Then imagine a repetition of this for
several hours. Of course there is al always
ways always the accompanying whine of shell
fragments flying by you or landing
near you, the cries of help from com comrades,
rades, comrades, the feeling of horror at seeing
a companion fall at your side, the
deafening noise; the deadly gas; the
flash and roar of your own guns, and
the prayers of those who are giving
their lives for their cause. The per personal
sonal personal equation is forgotten; you are
merely a part of a huge machine with
one idea to get the other man before
he gets you. All these are the com plements
of, a barrage and attack.
