Japan is rapidly learning what war with a first rlasa power really means, and Miiikr the Japs it hasn’t shown its teeth JNPt# SWEAT IT OUT,; GENTLEMEN S ♦ “When an immovable body meets an irresistible force.” The Boss had a hard job trying to re call that quotation to ap'ply it to the dead lock in the Florida legislature over the re apportionment bill. He asked the writer about the quota tion, but he was mulling over an editorial he intended to write about the Key West city government that, beginning next No vember, will be in the hands of the peo ple,'and, therefore, he was unable to recall the quotation. But when the Boss is stumped he per sists until he’s “unstumped”, so Friday morning there it was on a two-by-three blue slip. “When an immovable body meets an irresistible force.” “That’s what is happening now in the legislative halls of Florida,” the Boss said, “at an expense of SIO,OOO a day to the tax payers.” Readers of The Citizen may recall that, many a time, it has been proposed to divide Florida because of the decided dif ference in attitude of the progressive peo ple of South Florida, and the attitude ill north and west Florida of “What was good enough for grandfather is good enough for us.” In no other state in the Union is there so great a difference in outlook as there is between the people of South Florida and those in the remainder of the state. Of course, there are many exceptions in both sections,'but that is the picture generally. Aiuf the senators from the north and west have a majority, and they are insistent that there shall not be any reapportion ment, regardless of the far greater popu lation in South Florida, that will upset their majority. So there you have it: the stubborn, im movable body from north and west Florida withstanding the irresistible force of prog ress. It would be purely a guess to say whether the body or the force will be tri umphant. The senators from the north and the west have been seasoned by the “de lightfully” hot summers in Tallahassee and vicinity, about which Governor Caldwell spoke briefly, without cracking a smile. His few remarks make up the niftiest legis lative dig we have heard about in many a day. However, here’s hoping that the legis lators from the south will sweat out the “delightful” Tallahassee summer without budging from their right and just position. Provide for your futurity with military security.—Don’t talk! Private investors are beginning to won der if high interest rates will return. The answer is in the negative. * JAP BOMBS IN THE U. S. The War Department has finally re leased the news that the Japanese have at tempted to do some damage in the United States by using free balloons, carrying small bombs from the Pacific into the west ern states. The details are not released hut news paper men have known for some months that balloons were being used by the Jap anese. So far as we know no newspaper has printed facts which the government thought might aid the Japs in the effort to accomplish something and the fact that no property damage is acknoledged. Where the Japs release their bombs is not yet disclosed but the Department requests that the public make no mention of the landing of any balloon because such information might help the Japanese in the timing and release of other bombs. One hundred years ago, it occurred to very few to think whether the homes of the poor were convenient, sanitary or sunny. In the old Indian sign language, some thing had was indicated symbolically by a motion of throwing away. That sign is still used today by many people as a gesture of disgust. REMOVING LAND MINES "There are 160,000 recorded mines buried here and no one knows how many others,” declares a British lieutenant colo nel, who has been directing the work of German prisoners in removing and destroy ing mines at Dunkerque. 1 he news item gives us some idea of the tremendous job of removing dangerous explosive devices, including booby traps, in the wake of the German surrender. The figure given for Dunkerque must be multi plied many, many times. THE KEY JFEST! CITIZEN YESTERDAY: The children were jurious at Cynthia’s unex pected marriage. Edris took it the hardest. Dinner that night teas a strained affair and Vera didn’t even show up. Maud’s atti tude was stiff and uncompromis ing. ' Chapter 8 - AFTER dinner as they were leaving the room Maud touched Cythia’s arm. “I must speak to you.” She was agitated. Even her grey crepe dress flut tered. „ Cynthia groaned silently. Now It was coming. But she followed into the breakfast room without a struggle. This was Fred’s sister, a thm, grey woman who had been a mothe- to him as he had explained dozens of times. Funny how far away Fred had become. But there was no scene. “I am moving into the garden house if you don’t object, Cyn thia.” The garden house! “Oh, Maud — u Cynthia felt Lhe color com ing into her face. “At once. Of course I cannot stay here.” Maud was prim. “Neither will I accept it rent free as you will suggest, unques tionably." Cynthia choked down a laugh. Maud hadn’t a penny of her own and had never earned one. She wouldn’t take money for running the house and taking care of the children but she had everything a salary would buy and all the perquisites of a household run the way she wanted it The garden house was a charming three room apartment often rented for a pleasant sum to the omniscient tourist and more than once furnishing the margin that helped Cynthia out of a hole. Now Maud would live in it and the upkeep would swell the other bills. But she only turned away submissively. “You must do as you think best, Maud.” The thin, eool voice held her back. “There is more, Cynthia. I don’t mean—what vou have done.

TODAY’S HOROSCOPE Today’s native may have many j queer notions and the mind may j have a trend toward the unusual, | perhaps taken up with religion or some kinddred study. There is indicated a friendship with many notable persons, a taste for scien tific subjects when other aspects favor, and a good and able mind. But there is danger of making too much of the mysterious. George H. Soule, Jr. of New York, editor, born Stanford, Conn., 58 years ago. It is your own life. I realize that you might have married years ago I don’t understand such things—” A pale blush dyed her face, “but you could have gone about it in another way, not— furtively.” "~' r " THERE was an appalling si lence. An accusation had been made. And there was no answer. “I know.” Cynthia’s voice was leaden. “I’ve been horrible. But the children will get over it. You’re making me feel that Ive betrayed thefn in some way when it wasn’t like that at all. I—l— don’t know why it was like it was, only there didn’t seem to be much time.” Maud cast her eyes down. “I suppose not.” Her lips barely moved. “You are not in your first youth, of course.” Yesterday she had felt twenty. Carey had made her feel like that. “Ned,” whispered Maud. “What does Ned think?” Cynthia’s voice grated on her own ears. “Why should he think at all? Why should anyone? This is in tolerable. You never took an at titude about Ned.” “Of course not.” Maud’s meek ness was the kind that kills. “Ned was quite suitable. If you had de cided that lie—” Abruptly the conversation was back where it had started. “You’re sure you don’t mind about the garden house?” v“Do as you like.” “Then I’ll sleep there tonight. My things can wait until tomor row. Edris, poor child, can use my room tonight.” The little room was filled with the whispering sound of her voice, a maddening sound and evil, too. Even anger failed to count against this sinister implication. This was Maud. This was the public. But Maud had been like this always and she hadn’t known. It was terrifying to look into the minds of people, the ones you saw every day and didn’t know. CAREY was walking up and down the lawn in the twilight, spoiling his shoes in the dewy grass much as Peter might have C*UE\IG By HUGO S. SIMS. Special Waihir BE A GREAT NATIONAL ASSET OUR SURPLUS SHIPS SHOULD 1 Nearly 7,000,000 tons of Amer iican shipping have been lost since the war began in Europe in 1939. While this represents ■ more than half of our pre-war , merchant fleet, Vice-Admiral Emory S. Land calls attention to the construction in American shipyards of approximately 66,- 1000,000 deadweight tons, j The Chairman of the U. S. ! Maritime Commission estimates , that the nation now has total I shipping facilities of more than 1 60,000,000 tons and faces the vital question involved in the | disposition of this huge merch ■ant fleet when our warfare ends. I Admisql Land phoposes that • 17,000.000 tons be operated, that ; 6,000,000 tons be assigned to mili tar service, that 7,000,000 tons be scrapped as obsolete, that 10,- 000,000 tons be sold to foreign | shipping lines and that a “nation al defense reserve” of 21,500,000 i tons be placed in sanctuary by | statute. Breaking down the proposal ' the Admiral discusses the alloca i tion of the 17.000.000 tons which .he thinks should be operated. He would put into foreign trade 7,- 500,000 tons, coastal and inter coastal trade, 3,800,000 tons and WHEN IT’S JOB PRINTING REMEMBER There is no JOB 4 Too Large and No SERVICE Too Small THE AMMAN PRESS The Citizen Building PHONE 51 done. She went to him and clung to his arm and spoiled her own shoes. “We’ll be happy,” she said with passion. “We’ve got to be, Carey. It’s got to be like this, always and forever." “We are happy,” Carey said. “You’ve got your tenses mixed. Look here, you darling little idiot, don’t you know you’re over charged? Too much excitement crammed into too little time.” It camo before she could stop it, a horrid reiteration to spoil the lovely moment “I should remember that I’m not in my first youth.” She said it with a laugh but underneath it was bitter and hateful as if Maud was a third between them with her terrible logic. “Don’t say that again, Cynthia. Not ever.” He had never used that tone to her and she was almost fright ened. In the next breath he spoke of something else. “Brandon wants me to get over to the plant as soon as I can. I made it tomorrow.” He didn’t tell her that Brandon had asked why the devil was he living out of touch at the beach when other people were broiling in the valley. Instead he tilted her face up with a finger under her chin. “The honeymoon’s over, Cynthia.” It hadn’t even begun, she told him gayly as the soft darkness shut them in. THERE was a pyramid of bills and Miss Lee had totalled them neatly to a sum that took Cynthia’s breath away. One month, and more money spent than should have been enough for six. She looked them over, but without hope for Miss Lee never erred. Three statements from the best department stores and Vera in every item. Lingerie, stockings, expensive sports and evening frocks . . . what on earth was the child thinking of? She had never wanted anything but play clothes and bathing suits and her brown legs abhorred stockings. To be continued igton correspondent of The Citizen river 2,500,000 tons and on the Great Lakes 3,500,000 tons. These totals do not seem large when compared to the more than 60,- 000,000 tons available, but they represent an increase fo approx imately thirty per cent over our pre-war tonnage. Admiral Land emphasizes that the increase in our foreign trade merchant fleet should be support ed primarily from tade formerly carried by the Axis powers and, so far as we are concerned, prim arily from Japan. He sees no future for German or Japanese ; merchant fleets, believing that ■ they should have no ocean-going : fleets for many years because ! they used them, in the past, | primarily to promote military | objectives. We call attention to the figures ! given by Admiral Land because | the people of the United States [should understand the vital int , portance of maintaining a mech ! ant marine. Moreover, they i should not overlook the some what shameful disposition of our vast fleet at the end of the first World War, when ships and shipping lines were disposed of in almost scandalous fashion.
