up for his readers, so here goes. We
left Thursday morning, February 9th, **
for the King* Mountain Colony at I "
Palga Harbor, Florida, to eat, sleepJ"
and run-around with Attorney and 6
Mrs. E. L. Campbell who have been ^
wintering in Florida for over twenty v
years. We had a most pleasant trip f!
down, spending the first night at a v
little town in Florida about 12 miles'0
south of Jacksonville called" Orange ''

hor the nc<t day we stooped by SH-l'1

mcst beautiful' sitc3 of the Whole '
trip. Just as we were entering Palm 11
Harbor we met Mr. J. 8. Thomasson
and Attorney Ed going in the opposit'e
d.fcctlcn. They quickiy turned
around and piloted us to the home
where we were to have such an en- J '
lovable visit. The very first thing (
Mr. J. B. and Attorney Ed wanted'
me to eat some fruiti right off the
trees, so I followed them to Mr. J.
C.'s trees which were loaded down
with oranges, grapefruit and tangerines.
On the way from Attorney Ed's
to Mr. J. B.'s we passed thru the
Anthony property and Mrs. Anthony *

after we arrived, and he seemed
to be mighty happy in his back yard
eating oranges and taking life easy.

This then, indicates the urge still
exists In some potent circles to try
to get Congress to do away with
Stnte lines and* set ..tip a single unft
of government ? in Washington ?
to run the whole nation.
Another example is a bill recently
dropped in the legislative Poppet
lvery quietly) to create a Government
corporation that would be directed
to take over the ownership
and operation ot all oil, gas and mln
'Ug' industries and power plants; also
tbe products of these industries. The
corporation would enjoy "all of the
privileges and immunities of the
United States.' meaning that it
would be tax free and have the free
use of the mails, etc.
To States, cities and counties, this
would mean the loss of millions of
dollars annually in tax collections.
Still another example is a bill to <
do away with State charters and con
trols of, business This measure
would centralize the charter and license
authority in Washington.
The meaning to States would be
the same, again: loss of fees. . , ^
