14OW TO BE "ON THE BEAM"
Americans especially young Americans -
have a tendency to shy away from patterns of
behaviour they consider old-fangled. But truth
is never old. It is as apt today as it ever was -
and will be in centuries yet to come. The
problem is to sort out, intelligently, lasting con-
cepts of behavior from transient fads and pass-
ing fancies to untangle morals from conven-
tions. It is not simple. Why be good? What
Constitutes being good?
Mankind must be on earth for some purpose.
That purpose must be so that mankind can
become better than it is. It follows then that
if a person, on his march through life, strives
to become better than he is and helps others
to become better -he is in step with the Infinite.
But, what is the test for "goodness," what
does one do to become better? Is not anything
that increases the dignity and self-respect of the
individual good? Would not anything that de-
creases the attributes be bad? Would not any
course of conduct that exalts human person-
ality seem to be good and any that degrades probably have set in. Once you get 'says that Florida can't support in- -

'LONG DISTANCE GUESSING-
Again the question! If 'Senator
Smathers doesn't run again, and
if Congressman Charlie Bennett
makes a try for the Senate, who
will try for Bennett's Seat? Last
week we told of quiet rumors that
Scotty Peek had mentioned to
friends that he was planning to
run. Since then we have heard of
one "stop Peek" movement-and a
flood of speculation about the pos-
sible vacancy has come across our
desk. Some of those mentioned in-
clude: Lou Ritter, Julian Warren,
Lacy Mahon, Tom Baker, Fletcher

CITRUS MUTUAL SEE-SAW-
Talk about a see-saw. The trouble
that Citrus Musual is having which
the Federal Trade Commission is
the most up and down affair you
could imagine. In February 1953
the Commission filed an order
against Mutual claiming unfair
trade practices. Mutual filed a pro-
posal for dismissal and was denied.
Later they filed another request
for dismissal and this time it was
granted. However, the Commission
later on reversed this decision and
Mutual filed another time. Last
week Mutual was turned down
again. It looks as though it is
bound to go to trial, but before it
does, Mutual will have one more
chance. This chance was set for'
hearing in Washington on Novem-
ber 4th-then at the last minute it
was moved up to December 13th
and the scene changed to Tampa.

While it was not my privilege to
personally attend the First Inter-
American Conference on Travel,
Advertising and Premotion, held
in West Palm Beach, Oct. 10-13,
sponsored by the Florida State Ad-
vertising Commission, I am indebt-
ed to Dick Pope, vice-chairman,
for a very comprehensive report
.on the meeting.
This important conference was
attended by representatives from
Mexico, Haiti, Cuba, the Bahamas,
Nassau, Puerto Rico, Jamaica and
the Dominican Republic. Its pur-
pose is to closer cement the econ-
omic and social ties with Caribbean
countries and open the door to
greater trade and cultural inter-
course with South America and
Conducted in an informal manner,
the conference brought out many
constructive ideas and developed
some friendly criticism. Caribbean
delegates chided the Florida group
for failure to go after the worth-
while tourist business available
from their area. Most foreign rep-
resentatives agreed that their peo-
.ple could easily be persuaded to
spend their vacations in Florida if
they were coaxed.
WHY $50 BILLION?
(First of a series)
There's been a lot of yelling...
!)!rntv of headlines a lot of just
talk .. about your highways.
For years now, the state of
America's highways has been like
the weathere r much talked about
. but little done about.
Now, maybe something will

highways will be fixed up .. at

ed to Florida."
A representative of the Domini-
can Republic pointed out that we
have been looking to the North for
tourist dollars when equally as many
are available to the South where
we coula profitably urge folks to
come North to Florida this winter.
Several of the delegates attack-
ed the 10 per cent federal tax on
travel tickets. This tax is discour-
aging travel and hurting all tourist
areas. The conference passed a re-
solution to use every effort to have
the tax abolished.
Another well-taken point brought
up by the foreign delegation was
the language barrier ,and it was
resolved to .urge the compulsory
teaching of Spanish in all Florida

There also has been steel shortages,
shortages of materials and man-

And even today we're spending
only 18 percent annually over what
we did before the war years .
while the number of motor vehicles
in use has gone up 81 percent.
Why, do we need to spend over
$50 billions. The next two columns
will try to answer this question.

ica today, what could be more
reedful and practical in the affairs
of our people than the considera-
tion of this great evil of beverage
alcohol? Millions of .our people are
deceived, and what is probably
worse, millions of our young peo-
ple, citizens of tomorrow, are piti-
fully deceived as to the nature and
effects of beverage alcohol.
Since the dawn of the earliest
civilization intoxicating liquor has
been tWe enemy of mankind. Long
before the words of our text were
written, in the book of Genesis we
find the record of Noah getting
drunk, which was even then recog-
nized as a disgrace. Wine-bibbing
is mentioned in many other places
in the Old Testament, always with
condemnation. The prophets are
most of the crime in our country;
judges slate that liquor is the chief
cause of the huge number of divor-
ces. It is only the statement of fact
to say that alcoholic liquor is Amer-
ica's Enemy No. 1.
We appeal for a campaign of
truth concerning the real nature
of beverage alcohol and the actual
effects on individuals who drink,
their families who suffer, and the
tremendous price the American
people are paying in divorces, bro-
ken homes, delinquency among ju-
veniles, and crimes of every des-
Let us always keep in our minds
the words of the Bible, "Wine is a
mocker; strong drink is raging:
and whosoever is deceived thereby
is not wise."
