PRY CLEANING PRESSING Phona 32JL ATTENTION CALLED BY SCHOOL BOARD TO WORDING OF ACT The act of the legislature enabling the Escambia county school board to acquire properties has apparently been the cause of some misunderstanding. For many years it has been the prac tice of school boards to buy and sell properties at pleasure, under the Im pression that such acts were within tne law. At length, however, a test case was made under injunction pro ceedings, and the state supreme court ruld that school boards cannot buy even the least amount of property, even after the people have sanctioned it by vote, without the consent of the county commissioners. In view of the evident embarassment this technicality would impose Upon the efficient work of the board, the Escambia county board drew and in duced the legislators from the county to put through both houses the fol lowing act:-;-:': ' . '"" v.- A Bill to be Entitled: An act ' to authorize the county board of public instruction of Escambia . county, Flor ida, to acquire by lease, purchase or otherwise, real estate for pubUo school purposes, and to sell and convey the same when no longer needed. Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Florida: Section 1. hat the county board of public Instruction of Escambia county, Florida, is hereby authorized to ac quire by lease, gift, purchase or devise real estate for public school purposes, including dormitories. In said county of Escambia, and to hold, improve and use the same, and to erect buildings thereon for Such purposes, and when in its Judgment such real estate IS no longer needed for such purposes to sell and convey the same. In mak lng such purchases, said board may provide for payment in cash or in Its discretion may purchase on credit, the purchase nrice to be paid on such terms, in such manner and at suc'i times as it may deem best. Section 2. All laws and parts of laws In conflict with the provisions of this act are hereby repealed. Section 3; This act Shall take effect immediately upon its becoming a law.

PAN-AMERICAN COLLEGE WILL TEACH BOOKKEEPING "We have Just opened a commercial department." said J.. C .Beatty vice-president and general manager of the Pan American Business College, when In terviewed at the college. V "In addition to our stenographic course we have added' a complete com mercial course, teaching double and sin gle entry bookkeeping, banking, commer cial arithmetic,' rapid calculation, pen manship, business English, correspon dence, spelling, ' business methods, forms and practices. "On account of the great growth of our school in Pensacola we shall take stu dents only at enrollment, periods. Only those who enroll on or before June 1 will be accepted this year. "To make, this school the largest In the South we are offering to the first thirty that enroll a discount greater than has ever been given by any college. Al ready the enrollments are greater than what we expected and w are glad to find that , the good people of Pensacola . are taking advantage of this exceptional of fer and are preparing themselves , for Bome of the fine positions that are open." COMMISSIONER POU ; SEES IMPROVEMENT IN CITY SANITATION Commissioner Poii has been on an extended tour of inspection of the new sanitary, devices in different portions of the city. He reports that thero is all the difference in the world between the old way and the new for sanitation, and it is so manifest to the citizens who have observed Its advantages that many of them are enthusiastic and declare they would not go back to the old order for any possible consideration. The inspection will, of course, continue. Notice has been received by the local forest service office that the special provision made by the secretary of agriculture several years ago to apply to the Florida national forest whereby persons residing in or near the forest have been allowed to graze 25 head of cattle, 50 head of hogs of 75 head of sheep free of charge, has been ro voked. ; With this change the grazing admin istration of the Florida national forest has been brought into conformity with that of all the 140 national forests of the United States While the special provision was of direct advantage to a few users of the range, it worked more less of a hardship on the coun ties as a whole, within which the forest is located. This, by reason of the fact that grazing receipts were reduced and this reduction was reflected In the amount of money available . for road3 and schools within the county. Twen ty-five per cent of the gross receipts of all national forests is turned over to the counties. An additional ten per cent is used by the ' "forest service for the construction of roads. The grazing policy of the forest service is one . which encourages In creased production of livestock. This is aimed at in several ways. All possi ble areas are made available. Better handling of the stock on the range is recommended and the grading up of stock is encouraged. It is probable that within a few years the Florida national forest will be the only open range in the state. At that time full forage resources o? the region will be called into service, and the plan will be to make the privileges of the greatest value to the most people. The local forest officers anticipate cheerful compliance with the new regulation as promulgated by the secretary of agri culture, and feel that the grazing ad ministration of the government " has now been developed to a point where further changes will not be necessary. DimSAlIST LEADER TILL SP EM I CITY REV. LOWE WILL ARRIVE IN CITY TOMORROW AND WILL LEAVE FOLLOWING ADDRESS TOMOR ROW NIGHT. Rev. John S. Lowe, D.
