luncheon meeting at the Dearing
Hotel yesterday, the following mem
bers answering the roll call:

Mr. Seals, representing the Florida
Automobile Association talked rela
tive to the deplorable condition of the
Clay roads in Putnam county. Mr.
Seals s.aid that it is the expressed
ppinion of the traveling public that
the dirt roads of Putnam county are
among the worst in Florida. Other
members also expressed their opin
ions as to the needed work on f.ur
roads, it being pointed out that no
material is needed to put these roads
an fair condition. The Interlacheon
iroad is almost all clayed, but needs
to be slightly graded, which could be
.done at a very small expense.
; F. J. Fearnside, Sr., said that the
Interlacheon road lies between two
;road districts, and therefore cannot
be built by a bond issue from its ter
ritory. He favored Palatka joining
the road district through which the
Interlacheon road runs so that a brick
'road may be constructed to mest the
Alachua county road now under ob
struction. Mr. Fearnside's remarks
were received with applause,
j. The matter of building a new
ischool building was discussed. R. J
Hancock and H. F. Leeks said that
they and W. P. Merriam had inves
tigated the school situation and find
jthat the Palatka District is bondad
jto the limit; that this district is now
h debt in the sum of $1,500.00; that
he last sesson of the legislature pas-
d a law authorizing the school board
f Putnam county to call an election
to determine the issuance of time
jan-ant, $25,000 of which would go
to Crescent City for a new building,
Und $90,000 to Palatka. These war
rants will be interest bearing and
(payable twenty years from date of
issuance. Because of the present in
debtedness of the district and be'
cause of the provision of law for the
issuance of time warrants, the com
mittee felt that the present is an in
opportune time to advocate a bond is
sue for a new school building. ,
Mr. Leeks read a letter from In
ternational Kiwanis congratulating.
Palatka on joining' the family of 631
George Hilty, representing the
Rotary Club, gave a talk on effective
cooperation for civic development.
Dr. Sibert invited the entire Ki
wanis Club to the Methodist Chicken
dinner on next Friday night, where
each is promised much more than

mised to have on exhibition his ear
of corn growing on three stalks for
the edification of Dr. McQueen.

Riga, Latvia, July 1 The monk
Illiodor (Heliodorus), former pre
ceptor and afterward antagonist of
the notorious Rasputin, is again at
tracting attention in Russia by an
nouncing his purpose to start a rev
olution in the Orthodox Russian
church. Heliodorus fled .from Russia
after his break with Rasputin in the
early pari of the war but returned
after the Bolsfteviki gained control
He was unfrocked by the church.
His reappearance in public in Rus
sia was almost simultaneous with .a
revival of ferver in the Orthodox
church, which the Holsheviki now are
trying to combat In an address at
the Tsaritsin (of which he-was for
merly abbot) he' recently declared:'
"I consecrate myself to the fight
for the people's cause and to start a
campaign against the . popes
(priests) which is to make a revolu
tion within the church."
Every Sunday and on many reli
gious feast days in Russia the
churches now are crowded. Com
munists, themselves, ttve attending
the services and this has brought
down on their heads a warning from
the government "not to set so bad
an example for the peasants." On
that subject, the Moscow Pravda
says that some of the Communists
even have used Soviet official auto
mobiles to take their families to,
church services, weddings and chris
tenings. The newspaper printed the
following warning from the party
heads: - .

NO RECORDS LOST WHEN
GRAVEYARD SAFE BLOWN
It was erroneously stated in The
News yesterday that the burglar who
cracked the safe in the office of the
sexton at West View cemetery carri
ed off maps and, platts of the ceme-J
tery. Nothing was carried away for
the reason that there was nothing of
value in the safe that a thief could
have realized anything on.
The hinges to the safe were broken
off with an axe. Frank Wattles, one
of the trustees, figured it out that
the job ,was done by a white man as
no cullud gemman could be induced
to enter a graveyard after dark .
