BUSINESS AND THE FARM. The Manufacturers' Record quotes Governor Cal vin Coolidge. of Massachusetts, as saying: "There Is no question that the south should raise its food and feedstuffs to the largest possible extent, and for the cotton it raises It ought to get a. price sufficient to make cotton growing profitable. We want cotton in Massachusetts, but I believe we shall, in the end, get more cotton if the south raises more food products." Tha4 the south must, raise more food products if the nation is to be fed, is beyond dispute; the great issue today is greater food production, and unless Escambia county farmers do their full part in this production, we shall suffer from our, shortsight edness. Escambia county farmers have learned a few sound economic lessons during the past few years, and most particularly during the world war. The most important of these lessons, perhaps, is conservation of labor forces; the shortage of farm labor in the south has brought the southern farmer to a realiza tion that he must run his farm on the same eco nomic principles that a business man applies to his business. Man-power has been succeeded by ma chinery on the great farms of the west to such an extent that labor shortage Is no longer the formid able enemy to production that it was before modern farm Implements came into general use. The possibilities of West Florida and Escambia county are patent to the world ; tha,t we have carried off third and first premium at the state fair in two successive years demonstrates what can be done, when scientific methods are applied to farming; but what we have to do now is to make our possibilities pay, placing farming in Escambia county on a prac tical basis. The best method for this Is through cooperative effort; a strong cooperative farmers" organization In Escambia county would do more than any other one thing could do, to place farming on the same plane with other practical business movements. Until the farmer applies sound business principles to his farm, we cannot hope that food production in this county will increase in any great extent. Intensive farming, modern methods in the use of fertilizer, machinery, marketing; all these must ccme to pass, before Escamba county can taie the place which is its right, and which a few business farmers have already fully demonstrated to be pos sible. There is no farming community In Florida which has made greater strides than has Graceville in the past few years; and this success is attrlbuable to the cooperation existing between the farmers and busi ness men of that section, and the strong farmers' organization which has its headquarters at Graceville- Not only is the market price kept at the top notch all the time, but it is possible to get the very best produce on the Graceville market, because the reputaion of the Graceville market is such that farmers come from all over that part of the state, and even, beyond the Alabama line, to sell their produce. Graceville has learned the secret of food produc tion; it is nothing more than the application of sound business principles to farming; the farmer will produce If he can get his market; and he will get his market, if he will go about it along business lines. -A Cooperative Farmers' Association, composed of representatives from the farming and business com munities, would soon make of Pensacola as good a market for produce as Graceville; and better, if one may judge by the honors which have already come to us, through the awards at the state fair. started in Pensacola. there were some few obstruc tionists who were opposed to the movement; that their objections had no foundation, has been proven 'by the strong movement which other neighboring towns are making to Install such presses at their own ports. Jacksonville is the latest port to Inau gurate a movement for a high density press. Last year saw many movements started in Pensa cola some of which are on the way to completion, and none of which exceeds in Importance the high density press. Which will be ready to take care of the next cotton crop, according to those most direct ly interested in this project, of such vital concern to this entire section of Florida. The game of life is lots of fun; It's easy enough to play; But before you play you must learn the rules. Or there'll be the deuce to pay. The American Legion has plenty of work cut out for it, but I", does not seem quite fair to look to the soldiers to do all the hard work, abroad and at home. We don't want to forget that they have al ready saved America once,' and now it is up to the rest of us to do some of the saving, "too.

The story is going the rounds that the first thing Edward Bok did after retiring as editor of the Ladies' Home Journal was to reduce the rent of six houses owned by him. in Morion, Pa.

The centennial seems to justify the newspapers in the state in giving: Pensacola a friendly (?) crack, every once in so often. Possibly the Breeze does not know that the great World's Fair la Chicago was held after the Haymarket riots. No one con nected the two, which were as far apart in con nection as are the centennial and the burglaries. CONNECT THE TWO COUNTIES. Prospects seem bright for the success of the Pen-saeola-Volanta inter-urban railway, according to a number of Pensacola business men. Interested in the movement; It was announced yesterday that Bald win county has about succeeded in raising its pro portion of funds to be applied to the road. Much Interest is being displayed by farmers and business men of this section, who realize that such a road would do much to build up this part of the state.. The connection of the two counties through an inter-urban road would mean that from ten to fif teen thousand persons would use Pensacola as a trading center. The farmers in the Foley neigh borhood are putting In a number of orange and peach orchards; that section is already counted among the most progressive in the south, and with connection made between the two sections we should have more and cheaper vegetables and fruits, and of better quality than those shipped to us from markets so far distant. The bridge at Lillian, across the Perdido river, has been in use now for the past two years; but the road between Pensacola and Lillian Is in very bad condition; while we are waiting for the inter-urban road to become a fact, the county might do well to give some attention to this stretch of roadway. Peo ple in that section would come to Pensacola in in creasing numbers, even now, were it not that the road is almost impassable at times. If the inter-urban road between the two counties becomes a fact, and there seems every reason to be lieve that it will soon take concrete form, Pensacola will become one of the important markets of Florida. Uncle Joe Dixon of the Gadsden Times is coming back at us. because we pked fun at the Con cessional Record. We'll stand for anything that Uncle Joe v.lll recommend, but we wish they wouldn't mske those speeches so long and often, and then miybe there would be enough paper to go round, and also we might have been among those present r.t tl e recent party over in Paris that is to say, by proxy, of course.

That the high density cotton compress will be completed within a period of forty to sixty days, is an announcement which will be received by the business men of Pensacola and farmers of West Florida with no small degree of interest. That a high density press is one of the important factors in port development is proven not only through the experience of ports which have these presses already in operation, but by the demand which js coming from those ports which have not yet Installed such presses, and which are finding themselves handicapped, by reason of competition with ports which are handling their cotton cargoes in the modern way. The high density press, which Is located on a tract of about seven acres of land, near Gouldlng, and just north cf the old Atlantic cotton compress, is well under way, and there is every reason to believe that the press will be completed by spring. The steel work on the higli density press is under contract to the Pensacola Shipbuilding Company, and the work is well started. When the movement for a high density press was FloridaPress Opinion How Plan Will Probably Work Out. John T. G. Crawford, Florida member of the Na tional Democratic Committee has returned home to Jacksonville from the meeting of the committee in Washington last Thursday and says that the diffi culty has been removed that would have made it impossible for the Florida delegates to attend "the national convention in San Francisco because of the nearness in date of the convention and the date of the convention and the date of our primaries when the delegates must be elected. The date of the national convention was made one day earlier, June 29, to cure the difficulty. The Florida primaries are on June 8 and asked as to the procedure in getting the delegates elected and certified in time to get them to San Francisco as of ficially accredited delegates. Mr. Crawford explained that in the selection of delegates there will be no second choice to be bothered with, the twelve high est being declared the winners. The county canvass ing boards while requested to meet not later than one week after the primary date, on the 14th of June, if possible, to canvass the returns for delegates only. These returns would then be forwarded immediately to the state canvassing board at Tallahassee, and if the plan is carried out to the letter by the canvass ing boards the returns from every county should be at Tallahassee not later than the ISth. The state canvassing board would require less than two hours to count the votes and declare the win ners. These could be wired, if necessary, of .their success, and they could begin immediately to maVe p-eraialions to go to the convention city. If neces sary Mr. Crawford, as national committeeman, could take the credentials of each member with him and give them to the delegates upon reaching San Fran cisco. Mr. Crawford Is confident that the pln can be worked without any trouble if the importance of it is sufficiently impressed upon each and every county canvassing board. He will seek to have each com mittee member at the meeting of the state commit tee there on January 29 pledge himself as a com mittee of one to do all in his power to bring about success. Gadsden Times. CAMPAIGN FOR SERVICE FUNDS COMMUNITY SERVICE NEEDS CASH TO PUT OVER PROGRAM FOR CITY OF PENSACOLA. Second Sale of the Season For One Stockman. The Pensacola Journal is kind eiwjgh to say: "The Gainesville Sun has every reason to be proud of the fact that it was the first Florida newspaper to give out to the world the splendid news of the sale of thirty-five head of hogs a 912,000, by a Flor ida farmer, and well says: 'This was a wonderful awakening to the possibilities of stockraising in Florida.' " Indeed it was a wonderful awakening to the pos sibilities in Florida . When the Gainesville Sun made the announcement of that auction sale, by Mr. Herlong, at which thirty-five head of hogs brought more than twelve thousand dollars, we might have added that it was his second sale of the season. And he has more on hand and brood stock enough, of pure breed, to make his sale another year still more wonderful. Alachua county is very proud of its in telligent, wide-awake stock raisers, who are adding so much to the wealth of the county and the state And not only are they adding to wealth, but they are benefactors. Gainesville Sun. Just a Little on the Side. Mr. W. R. Flowers, one of Santa Rosa's leading naval stores operators and capitalists, who is pro gressive along developnent lines, was moving his hogs from outlying points to his still near town this week. Two auto truck loads of these hogs were stopped on the streets of Milton Wednesday and elicited co small amount of favorable comment. They are not pure bred Durocs, although showing a strain of that breed in their make up, but they are just a fine lot of thrifty porkers weighing around an hundred and fifty to two hundred pounds, and will make a fine lot of meat a little later, when they will be converted into the great American product, pork. Mr. Flowers has about an hundred of these pork ers, grown as a side line to his turpentine business, which we opine will net him a handsome profit on investment and cost of production- What Mr. Flow ers has done, others could do, to their own profit and the betterment of the country by increasing its food supply. Milton Gazette With the entrance of the United States into the great World War came the demand for an organization that would see to the welfare and enter tainment of the thousands of youths assembled in the army and navy camps situatr-i in various parts of the country, this demand culminated in the organization cf the War Camp Community Service. Their efforts of securing clean and wholesome amuse ment and the solidifying of the spirit of Americanism of the Dough Boys with the singing of the national songs, and the bringing together these heroes of America with various com munities in which they may have been I located was so successful that the de jmand for the continuation of the Com- Imunity Service work since the sign ing of the armistice is even greater ,than the demand which brought forth the creature: therefore, the Commun ity Service succeeds the D. C. C. S., but its scope of endeaver will be broadened considerable, while the ser vice men will receive consideration as before, the present program will be diversified with a view of developing the American youth into real men and women, by the application of Ideas that are practical and sound. To continu? the work undertaken by the Community Service will require funds, and as this community has been one of the many to receive the bene fits that have accrued under the old organization, and it is believed that the demand in this city today almost unanimous for the continuation of the program as mapped out, there is no doubt that when the people are given opportunity will liberally contribute to this worthy cause. The citizens of Pensacola may judge the value of the Community Service to this city after perusing the program as outlined for this city. Soldiers Club and Community Center. 1.
