Jacksonville Is out for a permanent military
camp, and is' urging that Camp Johnston be re
tained. Here are some of the reasons the Jack
sonville Metropolis putg forward for the retention
of the camp established at Jacksonville during the
world war:
There is a strong possibility sooner or later
of thti United States having trouble with Mex
ico. It is the part of wisdom then to be pre
pared for this emergency. Jacksonville, owing
to the particular advantages it enjoys of being
a convenient place cs a war base in case of such
trouble, should be kept up by the governmeat.
We are glad to see that the war department has'
recently decided to make the southeastern army
headquarters at Charleston a more active or
ganizeilon, giving the commanding general
rnnre men and more authority. It would be a
great blunder to demolish this wonderful quar
tenr.aslers' camp at Black Point which has
more advantages possibly than any other
southern camp It is a pity, too, that it has not
been used more by the government. We believe
that the only reason that it has not been made
one of the favorite posts In the country i3 be
cause it? advantages are not known to the mili
tary authorities who have this matter of camps
in charge. Think of what an ideal place it
would be for convalescent soldiers who are now
confined to their barracks In other northern
faraps because of the cold weather. The Me
tropolis hopes that the war department will
keep Camp Johnston as a going concern- It Is
a valuable asset to the military arm of the
U. S. and should be kept on a permanent footing.
On January first the Tampa Tribune entered upon
its twenty-seventh anniversary. During the twenty
seven years of its existence, the progressive south
Florida daily has been under the same editorial and
ownership management, and has never missed a
single issue.
, On the same page with the birthday announce
ment of The Tribune, is published an editorial on
the fire which threatened to sweep away a great
part of the business section recently, and In which
Edl the newsprint in the city was burned. Para
graphlcally the Tribune says:
When a fire bums all the paper stock in a
town and you have to get it by wire from Mo
bile and Jacksonville, and every other place
where you' suspect a fellow of having more than
enough to do him over night, and they all re
. spond promptly and send condolence and word
that "it is on the way," it makes you feel like
there's something in this "brotherhood of man"
after all.
The entire state has felt a deep sense of gratifi
cation that the Tampa fire, which a.t one time
threatened to attain grea.t proportions, was so
quickly and successfully checked and that the Tri
bune's birthday party was not marred.
In making its anniversary announcement, the
Tribune says :
Running daily from7 twelve to twenty-four
pages, with from thirty-eight to sixty on Sun
days, and going to more than twenty-one thou
sand paid subscribers daily, and over twenty
seven thousand on Sundays, The Tribune has
surely grown. It is hard for even those who .
have watched it grow to recognize it as the little
thing which was started in Tampa twenty-six
years ago, because of faith in the future of
Tampa, and knowledge that if Tampa made
good The Tribune, which helped it, would make
good, too.
Looking back over the twenty-six years
which have closed, nothing stands out more
boldly in relief, as the one thing that helped
make The Tribune what It is, thaa by the loyalty
the faith and the loving standing-by of our
friends. If The Tribune should be forced today
to cease existence, we have a reserve store of
friendships which we could not exhaust during
more than the Hfet'me naturally allotted to
There' was a time many of them at the
beginning, when the cash to pay the postage on
the little issues taxed the paper to a degree that
sleeplessness and doubt almost overcame the
knowledge that some how, some where, there
was the few dollars needed for the monv.at.
They always came. Today the weekly postage
bills of The Tribune figure up to more than all
the real money we ever saw in a whole year of
- our first endeavors. Today the weekly payroll
of The Tiibune totals a figure that would have
seemed munificence to us during the first year3
of our struggles. , -
There must be a reason for this success. The
policy of The Tribune has conquered difficulties,
built up friendships, and created the valuable
property which is now in being.
From the start the one and only policy of
The Tribune was to play fair with the public;
to speak a decided "yes" or "no," as required,
and to advocate those things in local, county,
state and national affairs that are for the good,
the constructive upbuilding of the people. There
has never been a time when "the wayfaring
man, though a fool," could not read the sign
board of The Tribune's, position on any ques
tion. It has stood for something all the time.
It has mr.de friends and it luxuriates in the
pleasure of the thought; it has made some
enemies, and it glories in the fact; it has rever
sold itself to benefit a friend, and it has never
perjured itself to injure an enemy. It has htt
hard, but never below the belt; it has gone down
in defeat, but it has never been whipped.
It starts the new year, and its twenty
seventh year, with the. full determination to
treasure more dearly the friends it has mad-,
to feel more sorrow for, than anger at, ths ca-.
emie& who would injure it, and to give its read
ers every day the best effort in its shop. It has
leon under the same editorial and ownership
muragei;ent since its establishment, and has
not missed a single issue; and it hones lo ccn-
tinue to be "the best paper In Florida," as one
of our thousands of friends, declares it. The
Tribune wishes all of It3 readers and the breth
ren of the press everywhere, a Happy and a
Prosperous New Year.

Ten Months for Teachers of Florida
j Fons A. Hathaway, superintendent of public in
struction for Duval county, before the State Teach
ers' association sA Bradentown last night, proposed
that they endorse, recommend, and work for a ten
months contract for teachers.
His plan should have the commendation and
support of every lover of the best interests of the
state. -
Mr. Hathaway want before his board before
Christmas 3nd contended for full pay for his teach-i
ers for the holiday season of two weeks.
There seems to be no just reason why, in the
near future, the teachers of Florida should not be
contracted with for a full twelve months. The day
is coming when we will give our teachers the same
privileges that the government gives its civil ser
vice employes, thiriy days' "leave of absence" an
nually, with full pay, and thirty days' "sick leave"
during the year, with full pay.
j The schools of ijo county should begin any fall
season without at least two weeks of Institute
work and conference of the teacheri, of that coun
ty. It should be required, and paid for, that all the;
teachers of the cbunty meet at the county seat, or
some central place of convenience, and through
v conference and lecture and planning, map out tho
year's work and go to their respective places 1m
mued with the spirit of unity and of enthusiasm
which nothing else can give like the close contact
of person and mind:
Mr. Haihaway's plan for a ten months' contract
is the starter on " this greater plan which we will
"be educated up to" later. It should need nothing
more than an outlining of Its principal features
lo make it at once the future goal of the state ed
ucational "authorities. Tampa Tribune.
We Want It Over Here
I It is stated that this road is seeking a Gulf ter
minus. If such be the case, and it is highly prob
able, why not make an effort to get it to come to
St. Andrews Bay, the best harbor on the Gulf of
Mexico, nearer the "Panama canal than any other
north Gulf shore harbor, and much nearer the
present lines of the Central of Georgia than any
other point on the Gulf shore.
What the bay country needs just now is first
class transportation service both by rail and water.
and the latter would follow the inauguration of
the forc.r. There s no !ack of tormina.. locaUons
of the very choicest kind here on St. Andrews bay,
which could be acquired for that purpose by a road

corning here, and the mileage saved through coming
to the nearestpoint on the Gulf to their lines is
an item that would appeal strongly to those putting
. , v,.!i,j o k
up he money to build buch a line.
It is but a short distance north from here to a
connection with the Central of Georgia, and the
topography of the country is such that railway
building would be very Inexpensive. By all means
let an attempt be made to locate the terminus of
this road on St. Andrews bay.-St. Andrews Bay

Why Not Stop the Waste?
Congress has asked the newspapers to limit their
use of paper for 1920 to at least ten per cent under
that for 1919, on account of the paper shortage. The
present prospects are that a large number will have
to suspend because they cannot get paper at any
price, and meanwhile the worse than useless waste
of paper in government departments goes on with
out let or hindrence. . During the war the news
papers were asked to make donations of literally
millions of dollars in advertsing space to the various
government activities. Now those same papers have
a better right toask that this waste stop that he
papers may exist and not only that but they may sell
adverising space and have the paper on which to
print it. to recoup the losses that every one of them
suffered during the war. A concerted effort on that
line might wake congress and congressmen up to
the situation and get some relief. DeFuniak Breeze.
