The shipyards of America established a new
." t. - - '
record for ship production for the twelve months
just ended. From September 27, 1917, to Sept
ember 26, 1918 the United States placed in ser
vice 1,956,455 gross tons of shipping. The pre
vious world's record was held by British ship
yards, which in 1913, the greatest year in British
shipbuilding, turned out 1,932,153 gross tons.
Expressed in deadweight tonnage, the figure
used by the Shipping Board, American produc
tion was nearly 3,000,000 tons. The twelve
months just ended are first in which American
production for a year has exceeded the record of
British yards. Before 1918 all shipbuilding re
cords were held by the British. .
The figures made public are those of the
Bureau of Navigation of theDepartment of Com
merce and not those of the Shipping Board.
For this reason they include all tonnage of 100
gross or more, placing them on a parity withhe
British figures, which are always expressed in
gross tonnage. ;
Commissioner of Navigation Chamberlain has
sent this message to Chairman Hurley of the
Shipping Board.
We have gone over the top in shipbuilding. ,,
In the twelve months just ended.
American shipyards have built and the Com
merce Department, Bureau of Navigation, has
officially numbered 1,956,455 gross tons, passing
the previous high record of the United Kingdom
for 1913 calendar year, 1,932,153 gross "tons
launched, of which 1,793,287 gross tons com
pleted. British construction for the present year is
behind that of the American yards. The latest
British figures available are up to August 31.
They show for the eleven months ended on that
date construction of 1,512,640 gross tons. Pro
duction for September will hardly be sufficient to
tring the year's total near that of the United
States. .
The British tonnage for theseven months and
the American for twelve aggregate 3,469,095
gross tons completed, exceeding theNrld's rec
ord production for. all nations of 3,332382 made
in 1913. p ;, 'j ;;.'.-''? '
The figures for the twelve months makeMt
clear that the United States will greatly exceed
parly estimates of production by experts, who de
clared that this country would not turn out '3,
p00,000 deadweight tons in 1918. With an entire
quarter yet remaining the production is likely to

Tallahassee, Oct. 2. The advisory
committee of the State Council of Na
tional Defense held its regular month
ly meeting in the executive offices of
the state capitol Monday. At this
meeting there were present Governor
Sidney J. Catts, chairman, presiding-;
vice chairman, Judge J. B. Whitfield,
Major A. B. Small,' of Lake City;
Prof. W. B. Cate, of Madison; Hon.
John W. Henderson, Hon. J. C. Lun
ning, Tallahassee; Judge C. L. Wil
son, of Marianna; Hon. J. C. Adkins,
of Gainesville, field secretary; Mrs.
Frank -JS. Jennings, chairman of the
woman's committee, of the state coun
cil, who represented the woman's work
in Florida, and the executive secre
tary. Hon. H. S. Howard.
Among important matters taken up
and discussed by the pommittee was
the work of supervising non-war con
structions within the state.
The plans of the state council of
defense looTTTIiK to the, merging of the
woman's committee with the state
council of defense was taken up upon
advice from Washington and a, com
mittee was appointed to confer with
the newly organized field defense of
the council of nation defense, in re
gard to the matter.
A recent order of the fuel adminis
trator calling on the people of the
state to forego the pleasure of "joy
riding" on Sundays was discussed. Lt
appeared from reports of the county
chairmen that in some counties the
request had not been obeyed. The
state council supporting the request
of the fuel administrator, passed the
following resolution:
Request Autoless Sundays.
"Whereas, The national fuel admin
istration has requested the people of
the country to refrain from the use of
automobiles of the county for pleasure
riding on Sunday and the state council
of defense being desirious of. aiding
and assisting the national state fuel
administration in the execution of this
request; therefore: be it
"Resolved, By the executive commit
tee of the state council of defense that
the county councils of defense and the
community councils in the ' several
counties of this state, actively, so far
as it lies within their power, support
the request of the fuel administrator
in discouraging and preventing, as far
as possible, the use of automobiles for
pleasure purposes on Sunday, and
that the members of the county coun
cils and community councils be, and
they are hereby requested to report
to the local fuel administrator in their
respective counties, any violation of
this request on the part of any of the
people in their respective communi
ties, so that the names of those com
mitting such " violations, if there are
any, may be published In the news
papers by the local fuel administration."
A great many times, in print and in talk, we
have run aeross this idea: "Even though he beats
the French Army and . the Italian Army, the
Kaiser cannot bring England and the United
States to terms unless he shatters their sea
power. How, then, can h ehope to win ulti
mately?" asks the Saturday Evening Post.
It is an easy conundrum. He expects England
and the United States to lie down. He hopes
there is enough laziness and selfishness and cow
ardice in them to give the game into his hands.
He thinks they will get tired of fighting. He
calculates they cannot stand the gaff. He banks
on the chap who resents having his profits in
terfered with, his pleasures interfered with, his
easy ways of living interfered with, his diet regu
late; on the big capitalist who forestalls as
much as the law will let him; on the same cap
italist who will not buy a Liberty bond when he
can get eight per cent on mortgage; on the labor
leader and wage-earner who will strikeeven
against the government; on the farmer who
would rather let his production fall off than payj
high wages for help. He expects timidity and
the slacker and the grafter and the sponge, in all
their manifold varieties and manifestations, to
get the upper hand and surrender.
The Kaiser will be disappointed; but don't let
anyone encourage him.

To Smash The Hun Buy Liberty Bonds !
Program For the Conservation
Of Telephone Service
Postmaster General Burleson's Bulletin Nof 4t dated
August 15, 1918, directed all telephone companies, until other
wise advised by him, among other things, as follows:
"To confine extensions and betterments to imperatire
and unavoidable work to meet war requirements and the vi
tal commercial needs of the country. All companies should
at once adopt such rules and regulations as may be necessary
and proper to accomplish this result, because of the difficul
ties, incident to war conditions, of securing adequate supplies,
labor and transportation.".
In compliance with this order, this company will undertake
to provide service as promptly as conditions will permit for es
sential war work and commercial needs which are vital to com
munity welfare.
Possession of government contracts, priority shippingprivi
ileges, or a letter or other form of advice from the chief of a
government departments certifying to the necessity for the es-
tablishment of service, will be accepted as evidence of need for
Telephones for drug stores, offices or residences of doctors?
hospitals, public utilities and such other businesses as are essen
tial to the community welfare will be considered as vital com:
mercial needs.
Initial stations or extension stations for business or resi
dence service merely for the convenience of the subscriber, un
less coming within the classification above defined, cannot be
'' . .
No applications for service except those permitted under
the order of the Postmaster General will be accepted. .
In view of conditions brought about by the war, it is par
ticularly desirable that telephone service be conserved in every
way possible for use by the government and essential war in
dustries and activities.-
Your co-operation will be of great help to this company
in complying with the order of the
Postmaster General
