January 7,1929.





Dr. Thomas E.Will,

Fort Lauderdale, Fla.



My dear Dr. Will:



Tours of January 5th has been received.

I have been able to establish a vacancy on my mailing

list and will send you the Congressional Record regularly,

Tou amaze me by stating that you "have been driven

out of the Everglades", and the further statement that "the saw

grass, representing probably 99% of the whole Everglades area, have

practically all been destroyed. The lake shore, and a small area back of

Lauderdale and Miami alone survived"

What do you mean by thisT low destroyed? What is the extent

of the area remaining that survivesT

The House Oommittee on Flood Control h6lds a hearing

next Thursday on the bill introduced by Sears, which isa copy of the

bill introduced by me in the Senate, and the bill introduced by Drane

with reference to the Caloosahatchee6 I will appear and make a

statement there. This, of coVrse, ie confined to the question

of flood Control. The principal idea there is, I think, whether

the Federal Government will undertake on a 50-50 basis to construct

levees about 50 miles in length reaching from Oanal Point or there-

abouts to Moore Haven and a little above, the idea being that these

(levees would prevent any overflow of the lake in case of hurricanes

or storms, and thus protect the people south of them.

What is your view about that



Very truly yours,





P. S. I sent you copy of the Congressional Record of Defember 5th,

I think, but am sending another.

VOTE "YES"

ON THE

Broward Drainage District Referendum

This referendum ought to carry, BIG. It's the ONE THING that will help the Back Country.
And the Back Country will then help the town.
Lauderdale needs the Glades worse than the Glades need Lauderdale. Lauderdale can't live
on tourists. SHE MUST PRODUCE.
That means her Everglades must be farmed. Then, as in Dade County, factories will follow.
These will bring pay-rolls, and a YEAR-ROUND TOWN.
But the Everglades must have reclamation funds. Hence the Broward Drainage District must
sell its bonds.
But it must first have more people and more values in it. This the bond-buyers insist on.
This won't cost Lauderdale one cent. It will cost Broward County one little mill on the dollar, about
$7,000 or $8,000 per year.
But the new taxes and new business this will bring will turn this little outgo into a BIG INCOME.
Further, it will help put a foundation under Lauderdale. and make it a city.
Do you. know how the Everglades have been carrying the Coast?
Do you know Broward's Everglades have paid in $700,000 or $800,000, most of which has
helped build the Coast, rather than the Everglades?
Do you know that, for 15 years, most of the 20,000 old Everglades buyers have been barred
out from their own properties, kept from voting, and taxed without representation?
Do you want to keep this up? Do you know that, badly as it hurts the Everglades buyers, it
hurts you still worse?
If you want to do justice to Evergladers and yourself at the same time, VOTE "Y E S" on
this referendum.
Some have said, "'We won't vote any more money to the old Board."
But do you know that these men are all out?
You ask. "Who will follow them?" I answer, "Let the Ev'erglades owners name their own
board, by petition; and then let us all petition the Governor to appoint them. If, later, the Ever-
gladers want these men removed, let the Governor remove them." That's POPULAR GOVERN-
MENT, and it's the solution of this problem.
VOTE "YES." And then help the Evergladers get their own kind of a Board.

%VOTE "YES"

SON THE',,

Broward Drainage District Referendum

This referendum ought to carry, BIG. It's the ONE THING that will help the Back Country.
And the B.ck Country will then help the town.
Lauderdale needs the Glades worse than the Glades need Laud date. Lauderdale -can't live
on tourists. -SHE MUST PRODUCE, .
That means her Everglades must be farmed. Then, as in Dade County, factories will follow.
These will bring pay-rolls, and a YEAR-ROUND TOWN.,
But the Everglades must have reclamation funds. Hence the'Brpoward Drainage: District must
sell its bonds.
But it must first have more people and more values in it. This the bond-buyers insist on.
This Won't cost Lauderdale one cent. It will cost Broward'County dne little mill on the dollar, about
$7,000 or $8,000 per year.
But the new taxes and new business this will bring will turn this little outgo into a BIG INCOME.
Further, it will help put a foundation under Lauderdale, and make it a city.
Do you know how the Everglades have been carrying the Coast?
Do yof know Broward's Everglades have paid in $700,000 or $800,000, most of which has
helped build the Coast, rather than the Everglades?
Do you know that, for 15'years, most of the 20,000 old Everglades buyers have been barred
out from their:own properties, kept from voting, and taxed without representation?
Do you want to keep.this up? Do you know that, badly as it hurts the Everglades buyers, it
hurts you still worse?
If you want to do justice to Evergladers and yourself at the same time, VOTE "Y E S" ton
this referendum.
Some have said, "We won't vote any more money to the old Board.'
* But do you know that these men are all out?
SYou ask, "Who will follow them?" I answer, "Let the' Everglades owners name their own
board, by petition; and then let us all petition the Governor to appoint them. If, later, the Ever-
gladers want these men removed, let the Governor remove them." Tbat's POPULAR GOVERN-
MENT, and it's the solution of this problem.
VOTE "YES." And then help the Evergladers get theit own kind of a Board.

VOTE "YES" 1

ON THE

Broward Drainage District Referendum


This referendum ought to carry, BIG. It's the ONE THING that will help- the Back Country.
And the Back Country will then help the town.
Lauderdale needs the Glades worse than the Glades need Lauderdale. 'Lauderdale can't live
on tourists. SHE MUST' PRODUCE.
That means her Everglades must e farmed. Then, as in Dade County, factories .vill follow.
These will bring pay-rolls. and a YEAR-ROUND TOWN.
Bu jthe Everglades must have reclamation funds. Hence the Broward Drainage District must
sell its bid s.
But it must first have more people and more values in it. This the bond-buyers insist on.
This won't, cost Lauderdale one cent. 4,t.will cost Broward County one little -mill on the dollar, about
$7,000 or $8.000 per year.
But the new taxes and new business this will bring will turn this little outgo into a BIG INCOME.
1 Further, it will help put a foundation under Lauderdale, and make it a city.
Do you know how the Everglades have been carrying the Coast?
Do you know Broward's Everglades have paid in $700,000 or $800,000. most of which has
helped build the Coast. rather than the Everglades?
Do you know that. for 15 years, most of the 20,000 old Everglades buyers have been barred
out from their own properties. kept from voting, and taxed without representation?
Do you want to keep this up? Do you know that, badly as it hurts the Everglades buyers, it
hurts you still worse?
If you want to do justice to Evergladers and yourself at the same time, VOTE "Y E S" on
this referendum.
Some have said, "'\'e won't vote any more money to the old Board.''
But do you know that these men are all out?
You ask, "Who will follow them?" I answer, "Let the Everglades owners name their own
.board, by petition; and then let us all petition the Governor to appoint them. If, later, the Ever-
gladers want these men removed, let the Governor remove them." That's POPULAR GOVERN-
MENT, and it's the solution of this problem.
VOTE "YES." And then help the Evergladers get their own kind of a Board.

Dr. Thomas E. Will
Fort LauderJdle, Fla.

Dear Doctor:

I have received your letter of December 24 together with the *'
clippings concerning the Ev': rldes. I am glad thct you are still
pushing the cause of the G-. ies and I hope you will succeed in getting
at the trouble that holds back a most v.onderful cozitr;: from having
prosperity.

Our taxes are becoming very heavy for the Everglade land.
We have written to several people in Florida to see if they could
ive a reason for these heavy taxes. They do not seea to have
a clear c-..ce..,tion of the situation. It seems to me Lh: t the
taxes are all out of proportion to the property in the condition
that it is in and with the few improverments thr-.t are being made.
The Drainage tax is very :.if.. I would like to ask you this--
Does the tax that is raisZed for drainage really go into the
drrln' in- of the Ever l'-es? Are those in ch'i" e really holding
up the owners? I should judge from -your letter and literature
that there is a lot of r:.t or a lot of money berlin wasted.

I trust you will succeed in arousing the new president
and getting the mat er before the *-.v-inment so results will come.
Is there anything I can' do, as an outsider, to help in the matter?

With kind regards, I remain

Yours sincerely,

Friend Wills;--


Have been wondering this Christmas time whether
you were still with us. I am well and hearty and in
pretty good spirits altho my taxes are not paid at Okeelanta
and have no money with which to pay the freight and cartage on
my Community Hatchery over from Mobile section. Have my
eye on a ten acre farm here half way to Lake City that can
secure and work on a fifty- _Jfty basis. But must get
my hatchery over here with the gristmills and pumps and
all household stuff. This does not bother so much as have
no family- still a bachelor. Have been talking a good deal
here during my stay of over a year at this hotel, about our
Thousand dollar an acre of land ten acres- near Clewst=-
ton where the Million dollar fellows are getting busy with the
SuGar. Believe the new Governor is down there to aay.
Am sure that all of this with the Rubberexcitement over on
the coast and all will help things along down there if we can
ever get things going before we die. Wish had my hatchery
down there and goTng now. Maybe shall be able to find some
one with a little money to move over. Am in touch with
Mr. i-agoon here in this County, the Poultry expert
but do not know yet whether he is working under the County
supervision or how. Will get in touch with him Monday.
He may have some one in mind who will take a hand. Know
one old millionaire here- they say he is worth forty- but he
would not put forty cents into anything. Have had in mind
organizing a pool to Ebuyheat on a bull market- the market
hat is coming within sixty days. Am going after the Dhyi-7-
ians- they are the greatest .Ljance takers. $50 each shar--,
in the association. And shall conduct the investments along
what are called 'Non speculative Lines' Ouch as
Uutten is pursuing in N.Y. and as has been conducted by
generall Motors in their last push. Can make the money
if can secure the backing. Of this am sure and if you are
at all interested shall explain more fully. Expect to

report more fully to you soon in regard to Magoon. Have n
never been in the habit of counting my chickens before they
come out of their shells, tho. /
These Hurricanes rather dampen ones order. I think I told you
about the Miami hlow getting us on the tail end over at Mo-
bile. Smashed my car, blew over the big barn and garage.
Ruined the place as to farming. SQoL-is too poor anyway
so took the blow as an indication tha9 I should move over to
Florida, which I like very much indeed.
May get back into the sc-ool-xork again but think not
as the boards of education wish the young-blood and not the
experiencecdtLacher and Universityj~Ea altho he is the one
to put over some of the problems in the educational field of to
day. The big problem, as you appreciate, will be the
shunting of our educational forces over to the Industrial and
Vocational lines of human endeavor so that when our
boys and girls come out of school they will face the world wi
with capabilities along some lineof work.
The South is pretty slow in grabbing on to some of these
prevailing ideas. I notice that Mississippi has not
WIDELY DISTRIBUTED Prof. M.V. O'Shegas y5ooo se'
survey report. Presume he told them that they were fifteen
years behind. Mississippi has made progress tho in the
Consolidated Schools. And very much so.
Pardon this digression and will get back to the poul.ty
Cand to the plant raising of tomatoes, Pepers, Celery and
Bermuda Onions et al and along with the sugar cane.
/ dhen you have time drop me a line and let me in on
our inspirations. Am hoping' TU get my toes in right here
in JacksonvTile firstand then move down to Okeelanta.
In the New Governor may undertake and put over'"En oldJGover-
nor's Drainage 20 ooo 0 ooo bill ( and without having
to hang Mr. Mayo). f~Eave never believed in capital punish-
ment- altho there should always be some relief.
Give me your thoughts and plans.
- -Accept from me Season's Greetings and best wishes
to you and yours for a prosperous season in 1929.
Cordially yours, ?

VOTE "YES"

ON THE

Broward Drainage District Referendum


This referendum ought to carry. BIG. It's the ONE THING that will help the Back Country.
And the Back.Country will then help the town.
Lauderdale needs the Glades worse than the Glades need Lauderdale. Lauderdale can't live
on tourists. SHE MUST PRODUCE.
That means her Everglades must be farmed. Then, as in Dade County. factories will follow.
These will bring pay-rolls, and a YEAR-ROUND TOWN.
But the Everglades must have reclamation funds. Hence the Broward Drainage District must
sell its bonds.
But it must first have more people and more values in it. This the bond-buyers insist on.
This won't cost Lauderdale one cent. It will cost Broward County one little mill on the dollar, about
$7,000 or $8,000 per year.
But the new taxes and new business this will bring will turn this little outgo into a BIG INCOME.
Further, it will help put a foundation under Lauderdale, and make it a city.
Do you know how the Everglades have been carrying the Coast?
Do you know Broward's Everglades have paid in $700,000 or $800,000, most of which has
helped build the Coast, rather than the Everglades?
Do you know that, for 15 years, most of the 20,000 old Everglades buyers have been barred
out from their own properties. kept from voting, and taxed without representation?
Do you want to keep this up? Do you know that, badly as it hurts the Everglades buyers, it
hurts you still worse?
Ifyou want to do justice to Evergladers and yourself at the same time, VOTE "Y E S" on
this referendum.
Some have said, "We won't vote any more money to the old Board."
But do you know that these men are all out?
You ask, "Who will follow them?" I answer, "Let the Everglades owners. name their own
board, by petition; and then let us all petition the Governor to appoint them. If, later, the Ever-
gladers want these men removed, let the Governor remove them." That's POPULAR GOVERN-
MENT, and it's the solution of this problem.
'OTE "YES." And then help the Evergladers get their own-kind of a Board.

VOTE "YES"

ON THE

Broward Drainage -District Referendum


This referendum ought to carry, BIG. It's the ONE THING that will.help-the Back Country.
And the Back Country will then hell) the town.
Lauderdale needs the Glades worse than the Glades need Lauderdale. Lauderdale can't live
on tourists. SHE MUST PRODUCE.
That means her Everglades must be farmed. Then, as in Dade County, factories will follow.
These will bring pay-rolls, and a YEAR-ROUND TOWN.
But the Everglades must have reclamation funds. Hence the Broward Drainage District must
sell its bonds.
But it must first have more people and more values in it. This the bond-buyers insist on.
This won't cost Lauderdale one cent. It will cost Broward County one little mill on the dollar, about
$7,000 or $8,000 per year.
But the new taxes and new business this will bring will turn this little outgo into a BIG INCOME.
Further, it will help put a foundation under Lauderdale, and make it a city.
Do you know how the Everglades have been carrying the Coast?
Do you know Broward's Everglades have paid in $700,000 or $800,000, most of which has
helped build the Coast, rather than the Everglades?
Do you know that, for 15 years, most of the 20,000 old Everglades buyers have been barred
out from their ow.n properties. kept from voting, and taxed without representation?
Do you want to keep this up? Do you know that, badly as it hurts the Everglades buyers, it
hurts you still worse?
If you want to do justice to Evergladers and yourself at the same time, VOTE "Y E S" on
this referendum.
Some have said. "We won't vote any more money to the old Board."
But do you know that these nien are all out?
You ask, "Who will follow them?" I answer, "Let the Everglades owners name their own
board, by petition; and then let us all petition the Governor to appoint them. If, later, the Ever-
gladers want these men removed, let the Governor remove them." That's POPULAR GOVERN-
MENT, and it's the solution of this problem.
VOTE- "YES." And then help the Evergladers get their own kind of a Board.

VOTE "YES"

ON THE

Broward Drainage District Referendum

This referendum ought to carry, BIG. It's the ONE THING that will help the Back Country.
And the Back Country will then help the town.
Lauderdale needs the Glades worse than the Glades need Lauderdale. Lauderdale can't live
on tourists. SHE MUST PRODUCE.
That means her Everglades must be farmed.- Then, as in Dade County, factories will follow.
These will bring pay-rolls, and a YEAR-ROUND TOWN.
But the Everglades must have reclamation funds. Hence the Broward Drainage District must
sell its bonds.
But it must first have more people and more values in it. This the bond-buyers insist on.
This won't cost Lauderdale one cent. It will cost Broward County one little mill on the dollar, about
$7,000 or $8,000 per year.
SBut the new taxes and new business this will bring will turn this little outgo into a BIG INCOME.
Further, it will help put a foundation under Lauderdale, and make it a city.
Do you know how the Everglades have been carrying the Coast?
Do you know Broward's Everglades have paid in $700,000 or $800,000, most of which has
helped build the Coast, rather than the Everglades?
Do you know that, for 15 years, most of the 20,000 old Everglades buyers have been barred
out from their own properties. kept from voting, and taxed without representation?
Do you want to keep this up? Do you know that, badly as it hurts the Everglades buyers, it
hurts you still worse?
If you want to do justice to Evergladers and yourself at the same time, VOTE "Y E S" on
this referendum.
Some have said, "We won't vote any more money to the old Board."
But do you know that these men are all out?
You ask, "Who will follow them?" I answer, "Let the Everglades owners name their own
board, by petition; and then let us all petition the Governor to appoint them. If, later, the Ever-
gladers want these nien removed, let the Governor remove them." That's POPULAR GOVERN-
MENT, and it's the solution of this problem.
VOTE "YES." And then help the Evergladers get their own kind of a Board.

Mr. Thomas 1. Will,
1o, 209 8, W. Sixth Ave.,
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.

Dear Mr. Will:-

I have your note of the 24th ult., with state-
ment of the Lverglade situation and marked newspaper article,
for all of which I thank you.

Just between ourselves, I am afraid my friends
interested in the 42,000 acres of Everglade land are "fed upl"
on Florida.

The ones I am nearest to own about 20,000 acres
of land up near Sanford, and people living in that district
and interested with them in the before mentioned tract of land,
are urging them strongly to put some money in for development.

They are also, as you know, heavily interested in
Coral Gables.

I mentioned your present work to them with the
thought of securing a substantial membership contribution, but
the time did not seem opportune as they did not respond,

As is their custom, they will be going South the
latter part of this month and I will follow about the first
of February. I will see them at Miami and endeavor to get them
to go up on the ground, or at least meet you and let you outline
your plan of reclamation. When I get settled in Miami I will
write you again,

Believe me,
truly youryx

Hon.Thomas E. Will
Fort Lauderdale,Fla.

Dear Mr. Will:

Thanks for your letter of the 15th
inst. and the information therein contained.

I agree with you fully and will state
we have already had extensive hearings in re
flood control and next week we hope to finish
the same. The Florida Delegation is doing every-
thing within their power to secure relief in the
way of flood control 6f the Everglades, but it is
a great problem as we have not only flood control,
but navigation and irrigation. I sincerely hope
at this session we may at least be able to get the
Government started on the work.

I also note your reference to the Fulmer
Bill and in reply will state I am cooperating with
Mr. Fulmer in every way possible. I agree with you
when you state we should not give to foreign Governments
large sums of money if we cannot take care of our own.
Congressman Fulmer seems very hopeful of securing the
passage of his bill during this session.

With kind regards, I am

Yours very since ,

Dr. Thos. E. Will,

209, S. W. 6th Ave.,

Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.



My dear Dr* Wills:

I am in receipt of your letter of the 15th instant

relative to the Fulmer Bill to authorize loan s to farmers in the

storm and flood stricken sections of the south-eastern states and

note your comments in regard to the same and also the difficulty

which you have experienced in an effort to finance farm operations

which you have desired to carry on in the everglades. I would like

very much to assist you and regret that the Fulmer Bill does not

reach your case. While a similar bill has already passed the Senate,

this measure seems to be meeting with some opposition in the House.

I think that all we can hope gor is to get it passed in its present

form. While I would like to see it amended I .do not believe it is

possible to have it enlarged so as to include other situations than

those enumerated in the bill. I want to thank you for the extensive

information you give me in your letter and to assure you of my ap-

preciation of your views.
*
Yours sincerely,




Px.v

VOTE "YES"

ON THE

Broward Drainage District Referendum

This referendum ought to carry, BIG. It's the ONE THING that will help the Back Country.
SAnd the Back Country will then help the town.
Lauderdale needs the Glades worse than the Glades need Lauderdale, Lauderdale can't live
on tourists. SHE MUST PRODUCE. '
That means her Everglades must be farmed. Then, as in Dade County,, factories will follow.
These will bring pay-rolls, and a YEAR-ROUND TOWN.
But the Everglades must have reclamation funds. Hence the Broward Draina e District must
sell its bonds. X
But it must first have more people and more values in it. This the bond-buyers insist on.
This won't cost Lauderdale one cent. It will cost Broward County one little mill on the dollar, about
$7,000 or $8,000 per year.
But the new taxes and new businessthis will bring will turn this little outgo into a BIG INCOME.
Further, it will help put a foundation under Lauderdale. and inake it a city.
Do you know how the Everglades have been carrying the Coast?
Do you know Broward's Everglades have paid in $700,000 or $800,000, most, of which has
helped build the Coast, rather than the Everglades?
Do you know that, for 15 years, most of the 20,000 old Everglades buyers have been barred
out from their own properties, kept from, voting, and taxed without representation?
Do you want to keep this up? Do you know that, badly as it hurts the Everglades buyers, it
hurts you still worse?
If you want to do justice to Evergladers and yourself at the same time, VOTE "Y ES" on
this referendum.
Sorte have said, "We won't vote any more money to the old Board."
But do you know that these men are all but?
You ask, "Who will follow them?" I aiiswer, "Let the Everglades owners name their own
board, by petition; and then let us all petition the Governor to-appoint them. If, later, the Ever-
gladers want these men removed, let the Governor remove them." That's POPULAR GOVERN-
MENT, and it's the solution of this problem.
VOTE "YES." And then help the Evergladers get their own kind of a Board.

Dr. Thos. E. Will,

Fort Lauderdale, Florida.




My dear Dr. Will:




I have been out of the office for several days and

consequently have only this morning received your letter of the

fifteenth inst., with enclosures.

Lunda.ientally, I am sure everyone who is interested

in the Everglades and who has an understanding of the nature and

magnitude of the problems involved is in agreement. I have never

interested myself in the details of the various "plans" which have

from time to time been proposed. I maintain that as basic requisites

to any substantial progress there must be a sound,public, binding

engineering plan prepared by the best available authority, and there

must be a businesslike organization of the District adapted to its

needs and capable of efficiently executing the plan. My judgment is,

that vhen these two requisites shall have been met the matter of

finrincinr will largely take care of itself.

As an important part of a re-organization there must














Mr. Thos. E. Will, #2 January 19, 1929.





be a reduction of present taxes and a sound theory of unit development

must be established. All of the land in the Everglades cannot be

drained at one time and it would be folly to do so even if it were

physically possible. I agree with you that the lands not in use should

be kept under water, that being the safest and cheapest means of pro-

tection against fire.

I am hopeful that at the ensuing session of the Legis-

lature there may be introduced and passed a bill which will provide for

a businesslike re-organization of the District, a complete and adequate

engineering plan, a suitable financial structure, and the development

of the Everglades in accordance with a well-defined unit system. The

bill should be carefully prepared as far in advance of the convening

of the session as may be possible and should have the approval of sub-

stantially all of the landowners, large and small. I am not preparing

any bill at this time, because those whom I directly represent have borne

the burden of the contests for many years and I apprehend they are about

at the point where they are willing for someone else to shoulder the

responsibility of initiating the reforms which are needed.

I have not interested myself to any extent in connection

with the efforts to procure Federal aid. I have never given any study

to that phase of the matter and it seems to be in the hands of committees

and others who are perhaps very much more likely to procure results than

VOTE "YES"

ON THE

Broward Drainage District Referendum

This referendum ought to carry, BIG. It's the ONE THING that will help the Back Country.
And the Back Country will then help the town.
Lauderdale needs the Glades worse than the Glades need Lauderdale. Lauderdale can't live
on tourists. SHE MUST PRODUCE.
That means her Everglades must be farmed. Then, as in Dade County, factories will follow.
These will bring pay-rolls, and a YEAR-ROUND TOWN.
But the Everglades must have reclamation funds. Hence the Broward Drainage District must
sell its bonds.
But it must first have more people and more values in it. This the bond-buyers insist on.
This won't cost Lauderdale one cent. It will cost Broward County one little mill on the dollar, about
$7,000 or $8,000 per year.
But the new taxes and new business this will bring will turn this little outgo into a BIG INCOME.
Further, it will help put a foundation under Lauderdale, and make it a city.
Do you know how the Everglades have beeh carrying the Coast?
Do you know Broward's Everglades have paid in $700,000 or $800,000, most of which has
helped build the Coast, rather than the Everglades?
Do you know that, for 15 years, most of the 20,000 old Everglades buyers have been barred
out from their own propeitiesAkept from voting, and taxed without representation?
Do you want to keep this up? Do you know that, badly as it hurts the Everglades buyers, it
hurts you still worse?
If you want to do justice to Evergladers and yourself at the same time, VOTE "Y E S" on
this referendum.
Some have said, "We won't vote any more money to the old Board.".
But do you know that these men are all out?
You ask, "Who will follow them?" I answer, "Let the Everglades owners nalne their own
board, by petition: and then let us all petition the Governor to appoint them. If, later, the Ever-
gladers want these men removed, let the Governor remove them." That's POPULAR GOVERN-
MENT. and it's the solution of this problem.
'VOTE "YES." And then help the Evergladers get their own kind of a Board.

VOTE "YES"

ON THE

Broward drainage District Referendum


This referendum oun'.t to carry, BIG. It's the ONE THING that will help the Back Country.
And the Back Country will then help the town.
Lauderdale needs the Glades worse than the Glades need Laud'erdale. Lauderdale can't live
on tourists. SHE MUST PRODUCE.
That means her Everglades must be farmed. Then, as in Dade County, factories will follow."
These will bring pay-rolls, and a YEAR-ROUND OW'N.
But the Everglades must have reclamation funds. Hence the Broward Drainage District must
sell its bonds.
But it must first have more people and more values in it. This the bond-buyers insist on.
fnis won't cost Lauderdale one cent. It will cost Broward Couqry one little mill on the dollar, about
$7,000 or $8,000 per year.
But the new taxes and new business this will bring will turn this little outgo into a BIG INCOME.
Further, it will help put a foundation under Liuderdale, and make it a city.
Do you know how the Everglades have been carrying the Coast?
Do you know Broward's Everglades have paid in $700,000 or $800,000, most of which has
helped build the Coast, rather than the Everglades?
Do you know that, for 15 years, most of the 20,000 old Everglad'es buyers have been barred
out from their own properties: kept from voting, and taxed without representation?
