The editor of the Fort Lauderdale
Sentinel wants some of the frills
taken off the high school t list and
more attention, given to fundamen
tals. ; "Take chemistry for instance,"
declares the Sentinel. "It' is a life
study, arid no high school pupil ever
acquires a thorough knowledge of
this unless he follows it up and real really
ly really learns it all tover and adds many
years of study, after leaving high
school." The Sentinel does not be
lieve in teaching music at the high
school, or art, and suggests that the
money spent on these things is prac
tically wasted. As we understand it,
music is only given as a vocal exer
cise, which is excellent for the health
and gives the pupils better use of
their voices in conversation and adds
to their general business ability. Of
art probably only a few high schools
go into this except in a rudimentary
way, which while stimulating a few,
does not really do any 4iarm to "he
majority. "Let us spend the moiy
ona mathematics, grammar, languai
and literature," urges the SentineL
and it is, to be hoped that these im important'
portant' important' matters are not stinted y
the other things occupying the time
of the high school pupil. If there
were a suggestion of neglecting the
essentials to add, the fine arts, or
sciences then it would be tune to call
for a revision of the schedules. The
public schools should devote the
greater part of the time to equipping
the young men and ycung women for
life where they are largely called
upon to take a full share in matters
of home and society and state

SEA ISLAND COTTON SITUATION
Frank Clark Busy in Behalf of Our
Editor Star: As a goodly number
of our citizens have been writing me
lately with reference to the Sea Isl Island
and Island cotton situation, and particularly
with refernce to the absence of a de demand
mand demand for this cotton and the conse
quent low price, I respectfully ask
space in your columns to submit a
This matter has given me no little
concern because I realize that this is
tne crop from wnicn our xarmers
must get money with which to m
their obligations, and I "have th
fore made a very thorough investiga
tion to ascertain the cause or causes
which have produced practically no
demand for our cotton. Of ? course,
we all know that the war industries
board permitted the importation of
80,000 bales off Egyptian cotton,
which while not as good a cotton as
our Sea Island, makes a very good
substitute for it. ; I vigorously pro protested
tested protested against this action, because I
knew that every pound of this cotton
brought into America was an injus
tice to our people engaged in grow
ing Sea Island cotton, but while this
importation could not be prevented
orders have been issued 'c-- positively
prohibiting the further importation
of this product. The dumping of this
large amount of foreign long staple
cotton on our home market, of course
had the eff ect of materially reducing
the demand for the home product. In
addition, to 'this practically all the
mills and industries of the country
which use Sea Island cotton in the
manufacture of their product,' have
been producing other articles needed
for war purposes, and therefore have
not been purchasing cotton.
I had .an interview on yesterday
with Mr. Baruch, who is at the head
of the war industries board, and he
advises me that it is their purpose
no wto raise the ban and allow all
the industries of the country to re resume
sume resume their accustomed work at the
earliest possible day, and this is go going
ing going to create a tremendous demand
for our Sea Island cotton, and in con consequence
sequence consequence the price will rapidly go to
a satisfactory figure. It is the pur purpose
pose purpose of the government to rush food
to Germany where there is a great
scarcity among the masses and as
soon as this problem is in a measure
solved, it is a certainty that .., their
mills will be started up and of course
this will make a tremendous demand
on this country for cotton. Not only
will the German mills need an enor enormous
mous enormous quantity but all over Europe
there will arise calls for the product,
which added to the demand of home
manufacturing enterprises for our
staple will send the price soaring. It
seems to me that in view of the short
crop and the almost immediate un unprecedented
precedented unprecedented demand for cotton our
farmers, by all means, should devise
some plan whereby they may be able
to hold their cotton long enough to
reap the full; advantage of this ex expected,

ceived received at. state headquarters last
This state which has gone through
in every previous war campaign is
lagging far behind every other state
in the South, both in the amount of
money raised and the percentage of
quota released. Up to last night the
total reports from all sections of the
state showed : almost one hundred
thousand dollars less than the half
million mark, with three-fourths of
the campaign time elapsed.
, No district of the state has yet
gone over the top and in some sec sections
tions sections the reports show a discouraging
slump. This is in contrast with re

other campaigns Florida has had,
which are reporting many districts
over the top already and indications

that it will be months before the men

work ahead of them.
i Florida's total subscription record
ed up to last night was $446,000. -The
districts, including several counties

district, $60,000; Miami district, $57,
ouo; ; Arcadia district, $48,uuu, and
Pensaeola district, $26,000. With this
showing it is imperative that every
section and community in the state
redouble its efforts toward a big over
subscription. "Now that the boys have
