The Tampa Tribune blazes out with
a fierce broadside of denunciation' at
the condition of the boys in the re reform
form reform school at Marianna. Now, if
the Tribune would only keep on shoot shooting,
ing, shooting, it might remedy matters, but in
a few days it will forget all about the
school until another scandal breaks
out. That reform, school, to the best
of the Star's knowledge, is the worst
managed public institution in the
United States. The governor could
remedy the trouble, but he won't. The
board of commissioners of state insti institutions
tutions institutions could remedy it, but it won't.
Members of the board will come clear
across the state to look after the
Ocala school for girls (which needs
little or no looking after) but they
will not go sixty miles to look after
the abused and suffering boys at
Marianna. The county authorities of
Jackson county could remedy it, but
they are probably in with the push
that abuses the boys. The press of the
state could remedy it, but it is too
negligent of its duty. The state press
trags on itself, but you seldom see a
Florida paper go into a fight that will
cost it a dollar or expose it to per personal
sonal personal danger. The editors of this
state should be bitterly ashamed of
themselves for. allowing to exist this
outrage, against which they could
raise a blaze of popular indignation
in a week. The legislature could rem remedy
edy remedy it, but when was the last timei
that the legislature of Florida did a
brave and manly thing ? Nearly all
its members go to Tallahassee, a
bunch" of time-servers to swap local
interests. Lastly, the people of Mar Marianna
ianna Marianna could remedy it. What has be become
come become of their one-time southern chiv chivalry
alry chivalry that wouldn't allow a dog to be
abused ? Such a' rotten institution
could not exist near Ocala. The peo
ple themselves would go to the rescue
of the boys and lynch the superintend superintendent
ent superintendent if he got in their way.
If the Ocala Star will listen to us
there are lots of things we don't know
enough about; and that's the reason
we don't want our children to be like
we are because of insufficient school
opportunities. Tampa Tribune.
It seems to us, friend Trib., that it
is the duty of a citizen, especially a
journalist, to consider a measure from
the effect it will have on the public
rather than the effect it .will have on
himself or his children.
If the teachers of Florida, who b
the way are being used as catspaws by
the political machine into which our
educational machine is degenerating,
are not receiving sufficient salaries,
why do they not do like people in
other callings look for better paying
work. If they will do this, the school
boards will pay them better salaries.
This talk about there being no money
to .pay them, when this county alone
is expending $85,000 a year, is non nonsense.

more than twice the largest number
of cadets ever before graduated at
West Point at one time. It was also
the first time in history that the
Academy has graduated four classes
in a single year, for today the young
men who switched from cadet gray to
olive drab were those of the third and
second classes, who in normal times
would have been graduated in June,
1920, and in June, 1921; Among the
graduates were four Florida boys, one
of whom was our own James H. C.
Hill of Marion county.
A dispatch from Jacksonville to the
Tribune Friday night announced that
Gov. Catts was in that city, canvass

Duval county. The dispatch said the

As the man who sends his children to
private schools continues to pay his
taxes to the public school, it seems to
the Star that he really does the public
