By the time this article reaches the

four weeks. It has been printed in
four languages. Every college in Am America,

I believe the farmers and their fam families
ilies families will support my contention that
it won't be neeessary to wave the flag

been telling the city committees that

that all we should have to do
is to tell the farmers what this cam campaign

A., the' Y. W. C. A., etc., intend to do
with the money when they get it.

you think his life would be-like in
France or Flanders or over in. Siberia
if there were no Y. M. C A., no Sal Salvation

bus Columbus to provide the comforts that make
his days and nights worth looking
forward to instead of periods to be

supplies clothing and arms, and. first
aid if the soldier is wounded., But,
after the Red Cross has given him
proper attention when he needs it, the
government can do no more. It pro provides

recall that a number of years ago
when the Florida Indian war claims
were settled and there was a surplus
of money the legislature passed an
act giving state aid to certain schools
$600 to schools of the rank of the
Ocala school and $360 to schools of
lesser. rank? These i schools received
this state aid for a few years and a
case was brought up to the supreme
court from Santa Rosa county asking
that the state treasurer be restrained
from paying, out these funds to the
schools upon the ground that the act
was unconstitutional. It was set up
that as the constitution was explicit
in specifying the sources of the school
funds the inference was that the leg
islature had no power to appropriate
other monies for school purposes. The
contention was upheld by the supreme
court and thetreasurer was restrained
from making further payments and
the state' aid was lost.

We might say that Ocala cast off
its fear of influenza Thursday night.

a good time, and not only they but
the town felt better.

churches and Sunday schools. Next
day the schools will be open and the
streets will be lively in the morning

While we hope to see the matter of
tax assessments systematized wheth whether
er whether the amendment is adopted or not,
yet we have been hoping this for
years and we do not know when it is
going to be done. No matter what
is done with the tax assessment the
amendment is a good thing and should
be adopted as it gives school boards
the power to provide for the needs of
the schools that are entrusted to
Some say that school boards are ir irresponsible

and completely overburden the people
with taxation and you draw a pitiful
picture of the tax-ridden people. That
this is not the case may be proven by
the fact that last July when the board
was fixing the millage to be assessed
they cut the bond millage of the Dun Dun-nellon
nellon Dun-nellon district from five mills as it
had been to one mill for the present
year as the accumulation of funds
seemed to justify this cut:

that had been elected to administer
the school affairs of a county and who
failed to make a tax levy sufficient to
do what they were elected to do?

But Betty had heard that before.

He did enlist In the aviation corps,

think earnestly of the war and of what
she could do to help. She went in for
Red Cross work for a while, and work worked

But there were others who could do
her work and she wasn't satisfied. She
wanted something distinctive.
Then one day she read how carrier
pigeons were needed in France, and
how difficult it was to get people to
train them. And instantly she decided
that that was her work.
She went out to their house In the
country, with only the caretaker and
his wife for company, and started out
with twelve birds.
It was interesting work and kept her
busy. She would take the birds 9
short distance away from the farm at
first. In her motor car, and let them fly
back. Then' gradually she increased
the distance, letting the birds fly alone.
At last it got impossible for her to
take them herself, as the distance grew
greater, and she 'would ship them to
friends In different cities to release.
They came back unfailingly, alwgys
with thelr,little brass tubes containing

swiftest of them all. Betty was very
proud of him.
One day she sent a message to her herself,

so lonely all week, and the solitude of
the- country gave her plenty of time to

So Betty went, but she took her

And that was when she sent the
