Cox, govern ment specialist in the public health ser vice, who has been spending some time in Pensacola" - aiding ' In the sanitary campaign being suceesfully carried on here. - - ' . Before the assemblage Dr." Cox read a -very interesting paper, much of which' was a comprehensive review of his worn here, which from time .to time has been published, and In adultion his paper paid high , compliment to the natural and other advantages of Pensacola and con tained other information of interest. Fol lowing are some excerpts from the pa. per: Organlzing For Community' Health. "Mr. President and members of the Florida State Medical Association: - "My purpose for appearing before you is several-fold. Sergeant General Kupert Blue ordered me to attend to- represent the U. S. Public-Healtj service.- - "I have been on duty in the state six teen months and have a fair acquain tance with men, affairs, and events from the point of view of sanitation. I count the members of the state health organiza tion and all the phvsicians as friends. 1 hail from West Florida now, and am possibly the only representative here for Pensacola and Escambia county.' Organization For Health Work. Nobody with a properly functioning mind nowadays denies that sanitation pays. How to prevent certain diseases and ken up the general public health to a better degree has become more than a theory; . Therefore we have official or ganizations for health. A brief sketcii of these agencies may1 be used as a set ting for further remarks; - "The public health service in which federal activities center Is mostly advis-' ory and least executive when applied to national domestic problems. ''State boards of health are more id vlsory and less executive within their own boundaries. No two are organized j the same. . Local organizations are least advisory and most executive or adminis trative, and tb county is a comfortable unit to handle. All have grown up from an original idea of self-preservation, and the local board of . health was the first to organize. The others same Into being as Interstate and international inter national intercourse became more com plex. . ' - "In accordance with the provisions I the federal constitution powers not ex pressly delegated by that legal instrument to the federal government are reserved by the individual states' to themselves. Therefore all laws of sanitation and pub lee health must be in conformity with state laws. There seems to be no reason why the public health service should not assist state boards of . health in raising the standards of administration among the local health organizations where most executive authority lies. In this way all are synchronized and have tne benefits of special investigations and expert advice. "Many of these theories of sovereignty have gone by the board during the war period or have been worked out in prac tical affairs much to the advantage of all concerned, it is believed. This is Il lustrated by the methods followed for sanitation in the extra-cantonment zones all over the country. . .... . r Methods Followed by U. S. Ppblic Health . Service. "Official orders during the first wee of February, 1919, transferring me from the extra-cantonment zone of - Camp Joseph E. Johnston at Jacksonville to Pensacola, read in part, "You will confer wiui state and local health officials with a view to placing health activities on a better basis. T'his may serve to illus trate whaf ehouTa be the mutual attitude of the three primary health organizations whose duties we have sketched.". Here Dr: Cox gave a full and compre hrnsive review of the work In Pensacola, Including the obstacles encountered an4 delays experienced before a great many of the people became fully convinced of the irreat importance of the campaign. -Other Activities In Coordination.

FLORIDA WILL NOT HAVE NEW STATE HOUSE FOR WHILE BY HERBERT FELKEL Tallahassee, May 21. By a vote of seventeen to twelve the senate today failed to pass the bill appropriating S.OO.OoO for remoedling and enlarging the capitol building at Tallahassee, and the same old statehouse wi'i nave to do for another two years. In sup port of the measure. Senator Lewry exhibited the architects drawings in colors of the proposed new building with two additional wings on each end, but with the same architectural lines preserved.

He said between - two and three thousand dollars annually was Iaid in rents by the state. All the departments would he cared for in the new structure, he said. Senator PALACE CAFE Under New Management Everything Good to Eat, Cooked Right STEPHEN CLEOTELIS Proprietor Igou also spoke in favor of the meas ure. " Senator Russell declared this was not the time to add to the statehouse because of the high cost of building materials. Senator Lowry replied that the contract would not be let till after the first of next year when prices of materials were expected to come down. Senator Russell's apposition was pure ly on business grounds, he said. He was not in favor of capital "removal, however. - : : TOMATOES. Set the stages while the plants are small, and as the- plants grow keep them tied up. New shoots will grow in the axils of the leaves, that is, at the point where the lea yes join tne stem. , Take out these new shoots e-eryweek or ten days, or they will delay the early ripening. Set the plants three feet apart in rows four feet apart if they are not i to be staked but allowed to spread over 0ie ground.

"At our suggestion the state sanitary engineer sent his assistant who made a very comprehensive survey and report of the drainage conditions in the city.
