Business Manager C. E. Stewart, Jr., attended the meetings in Marian na, Round Lake and Panama City, which formed the organization of the Satsuma orange growers west of the Appalachiolcola River William L. Wilson, of Panama City, who was elected president, has Jbeen in Tampa this week conferring with Exchange officials. The Atlantis National Bank, of Jacksonville, following a suggestion made by Vice-President Gillett, of the Florida Citrus Exchange, recently published a full page advertisement commending the organization and its work. Numerous leading banks in citrus Florida have taken similar steps and assurances have been re ceived from several others that they will follow suit rf Echoes of the recent membership campaign, conducted by the Exchange of a favorable character, are heard almost each week from every section of citrus Florida. Dr. J. H. Ross, president of the Ex change, stressed the significance and valus of the several meetings of affi liated growers which he had attended during the past month.

Plans for official ob servance of the day, which is expected to serve as a precedent in future years, provided for departure of th president from the White House short ly after nine o'clock, accompanied by the secretaries of wax and the navy. The party will be met by a cavalry escort just before reaching Arlington, The ceremony at the tomb will be simple. The president, accompanied by the two secretaries and his mili tary aide, will go within the enclosure formed about the tomb, and advancing beyond the secretaries he will receive the wreath from his aide and in the name of the American people lay it upon the tomb. The party will then retire, thus concluding' the official tribute of the nation. REGULAR ARMY REDUCED And Many Non-Commissioned Officers Will Lose Their Ratings Prior to January 1st, 1923, sixteen hundred non-commissioned officers of the regular army will be reduced to the grade of private. Many of these are men who have, through their own efforts and in years of service, reach ed their present grades. After these many years of faithful service the na tional defense act of 1920 will, unless amended, reduce non-commissioned officers to ranks hid by them many rears ago. A large percentage of those reduced are now connected with the National Guard or acting as instructors in reserve officers training units in high schools and colleges throughout the United States. These men are entitled to their present , rank and are justly entitled to the increased pay of this rank. Un less the nations defense act of 1920 is amended it will mean that these "old timers" will be reduced to the ranks. Of course this demotion will carry with it such a loss of pay and prestige as to make it impossible for many of them to continue pn the work as now planned. : It is understood that the secretary of war will request Congress to amend the national defense act. These men can only retain their ratings by such legislation. ' PATIGAN'S STATUE OF GEN. PERSHING San Francisco, Nov. 8. On Armis tice Day, November 11, a heroic statue of General Pershing, picturing him as if watching troops in battle, will be unveiled in the Golden Gate Park here. The statue is a gift to the city of San Francisco by Dr. Morris Herz stein, a local physician. It was done by an old friend of the doctor, Haig Patigan, noted San Francisco sculp tor. Eight feet in height, the figure is of gilt bronze and stands on a pedes tal of silver granite. The pedestal is five feet high. It presents the gen eral in field uniform, standing square ly and looking forward, both face and figure animated with the exprea sion of alertness and energy. On the face of the pedestal is the inscription: "In tribute to General Pershing and the victorious armies of the United States and her co-belligerents during the World War, 1914- 1918. Presented by Dr. Moms Herz stein, 1922." V Dr. Herzstein conceived the idea ox. the statue after he had heard from General Pershing himself the story ol the American expeditionary force and saw with his own eyes the fields where that force had won imperish able glory. The doctor toured the bat tlefields with Representative Julius "Khn of San Francisco Immediately after the armistice and spent some time as the guest of General Persh ing. Patigan has worked on the statue for more than two years, and, at the request of the doctor, has . kept the plans a secret. "O, where did yon get that lovely hat, Mrs. Barnard?" At Fishers.

WORK ENDIVTDUALLY Called by the directors of the Flor ida Development Board and a dumber of prominent men of the state, a meet ing is being held in Orlando today to decide whether .Florida needs an ad vertising campaign on a state-wide scale, and if so, what kind of a cam paign it should be, how it should be rfinanced and by whom it should be handled, .The Marion County Cham ber of Commerce will be represented at the meeting by Secretary Louis H. ChazaL who will not commit the chamber to any policy or plan but will secure all the information possible with a view to placing it before the local organization for consideration. f At, present the board of governors of the Chamber of Commerce and the secretary are inclined to the convic tion that most of the communities and counties in Florida, having limited ad vertising funds and each with a story, of its own to telL can obtain the best results by conducting individual ad vertising campaigns. !" Tomorrow a meeting will be held in Orlando for the purpose of organizing a state organization of chambers of commerce, secretary C nazal will not remain for this meeting. It is not be lieved that another state-wide organi zation is needed at this time for the reason that the Florida Development Board is a state-wide body. The gov ernors of the Chamber of Commerce and the secretary, believe that so far as possible duplication of effort and expenditures should be avoided and organizations should not be multiplied without a real peed. ; ' , THE STATE FAIR Jacksonville, Nov. 9.
