State C of C
Effort For 1962
A successful 1962 for Florida can
be achieved only by a greater push
and added steam to meet the state's
pressing needs, officials of the Flor-
ida State Chamber of Commerce
stated at year's -end.
"Each week that passes there
are 4,300 more Floridians. About
one-half (or 1,330) of these are the
result .of natural increase, that is,
births in excess of deaths. The bal-
ance, 2.970, are newly arrived per-
manent residents from other states.
These figures are net 'of those so
unfortunate as to have to move
from the state.
"This rate of expansion, though
not so great as three years ago, is
nonetheless e~quj.I i!nLt "to" adding
another, 'city 'a little larger than
'Jacksoaiville 'to the state's (total
population. each yaer.
"Highlighting the goals for the
year is a demand for an expansion
of employment. A minimum of some
40,000 more jobs will be needed to
take care of the bread-winners
among .the new Floridians, and still
other jobs for young Floridians
entering the working force for the
first time. Non-farm employment,
while appreciably improved at pres-
ent, is not yet expanding fast
enough to 'meet these demands.
"Standing high on the list is the.
.necessity for expansion of the pub.
lic physical plant: highways, sew-
er and water systems; public
schools and colleges, especially in
"Significant strides toward meet-
ing anticipated needs for invest-
ment and working capital, both
public and private, have recently
been initiated by banks and other
financial institutions and by the
newly formed Florida Industrial
"The pushing of Florida products
fruits, vegetables and manufactur-
ed goods, will be a mounting task
in, 1962, not only to sell the larger
state production but to meet com-
petition from other areas as well.
This holds true of tourism and the
growing convention business.
"Too often overlooked is the con-
tinuing demand for conservation of
'natural resources. The factors of
natural beauty which make Florida
unique 'and .desirable 'must be
guarded with gerater .care and re-'
plenished with more diligence than
ever before. Outstandingly, plan-
ning for the wise use -and storage
of water supplies for industry and
for Florida living and recreation
will demand more attention during
the coming year", the trade body

The appendix is a small, ap-
parently useless organ. jutting
out from the beginning of the
large intestine, it varies in
length, ranging from two td
three inches long, though rare
specimens up to nine inches have
been found. It is normally lo-
cated in the lower right forward
part of the abdomen.

When a brand new drug is introduced, its price is
usually high. That's because initial sales may be
low, and the pirce must cover production costs--
which are generally as high for small quantities
as for big quantities. But once many doctors be-
gin writing prescriptions, the manufacturer steps
up production and is thus able to bring the
price down. A survey in our own store shows that,
in the past 10 years, for every durg that rose in
price because raw materials or labor costs went
up, two came down in price because demand in-
creased. That's why we say .
