WHAT READERS SAY
On behalf of the Anna Maria Island Womens Club I should
like to express our thanks and appreciation for the splendid
coverage that you gave the activities of our organization the
(Mrs. Ralph) Ruby White
Having spent some time vacationing in Florida which was in-
deed enjoyable it is our intention, if possible, to again visit
your wonderful state this year, would like awfully well to sub-
scribe for your paper if you will write us giving us details, as
we may just wish to visit or settle in your immediate neighbor-
hood. If satisfactory will send money immediately.

Your readers may be interested in knowing that our Board has
requested the Sarasota legislative delegates to support Florida's
proposed Water Safety Law. This is the Act sponsored by the
State Board of Conservation. It appears to be a sensible and
equitable bill for the benefit of those who use the waterways.
James D. Neville
In reference to the item entitled Erosion on page 34 of the
May 14th issue, it does not tell how artificial nourishment can
be made to stay on the beach.
Rock groins sink, cause damaging eddies, are dangerous and
only tell their story in years. Usually it is not good. They do
not stop backwash.
Erosionis caused by backwash because if there is no backwash
there can not be any erosion. Groins whether rock or concrete
have not been successful. There must be permeable cribs that
cause a saturate mass of sand and shell and hold it at the shore.
Seaward groins alone of whatever kind will not stop backwash
but groins arranged as cribs will. The outer line of the cribs can
not be seen except during a storm but they stop backwash.

Be that as it may, I thoroughly enjoyed the magazine. As I

Last week was probably the
turning point in the history of
the keys. Half of Longboat Key,
a good part of Lido Key and all
of Bird, Otter and Coon Keys
were sold to the oldest, largest
and most successful real estate
developer in Florida.
Arthur Vining Davis is 90 -
keen and active. His landhold-
ings exceed $100, 000, 000 on
the Florida east coast.
The fact that Mr. Davis has
expanded operations to the
West Coast is assurance that
West Coast property is sound
The fact that his investment
here represents the largest
transaction ever reported in
this area reflects the extent of
his confidence in the future of
The fact that he picked the
keys speaks for itself.
Mr. Davis' decision came
after three years of intensive
study of the West Coast situa-
tion and he has the facilities
for exhaustive investigation.
His reputation in the national
community of high finance
will explain the extraordinary
things that will happen all a-
round us in the next twelve
This unexpected and.fantas-
tic happening seems somewhat
formidable to some of us who
.settled on these islands for
seclusion and naturalness. Sat-
uration will come much more
quickly than we expected. But
there is a sense of deep relief
when we consider that the pat-
tern of large development on
the keys will be set by a group
whose policies have been es-
tablished by a man of good
taste and high standards.
Mr. Davis has one of the
largest fortunes in the country
and there will be none of the
restless pressure to lower stand-
ards in order to squeeze out
money to meet shortages inthe
inevitable periods of economic
readjustment, which are char.
acteristic of any area where
growth can outrun thinking.
The day after the news of
the Davis transaction, John D.
MacArthur, who heads the
Bankers Casualty and Life In-
surance Co. of Chicago, an.
nounced his purchase of 32,
000 acres of Sarasota land
from the Edith Ringling estate
at a price exceeding $2, 000,

what I was doing and I knew
what they were doing, but
there was no relationship."

$13,500,000 LAND SALE
Arvida Buys 2,000 Acres
The John Ringling properties acquired by the Arvida Corp.
in a $13, S00, 000 deal with the St. Armands-Lido Realty Corp.
last week are generally regarded as the choicest tracts of un-
developed real estate on the Florida West Coast between Tampa
These properties were originally acquired by the late circus
impressario who played a major role in the development of
Sarasota as a resort and tourist center.
When Ringling established himself in Sarasota in the early
1920's, the keys along Sarasota's matchless gulf front were
largely bird refuges and sites of fishing shanties, inaccessible
to the mainland except by boat.
Ringling had vision enough to see what could be done with
them and bought them all, Lido, St. Armands, Bird, Coon,
Otter and the greater part of Longboat. He set about building
the Ringling Causeway from Golden Gate Point to the keys,
linking each of the keys with smaller bridges, which he ac-
complished in 1926.
He had just begun the development of what were known as
the Ringling Isles when the Florida boom of the late 20's col.
lapsed. Ringling died in 1936 and failed to see his vision real-
But his real estate, and his $1, 000, 000 mansion and his $15,
000, 000 Museum of Art, to say nothing of the circus, were
components of the vast estate left by the circus magnate.
For more than a decade, the estate was involved in legal
tangles and it was not until after World War H that Ringling's
nephew, John Ringling North, managed to work out a settle.
ment with the state of Florida and the federal government on
tax claims. Ringling had bequeathed the Ringling Museum and
Mansion to the people of Florida.
It is understood that in the long court proceedings involving
the estate settlement, the firm of Newman and Briscoe repre.
sented North, and as their fee, instead of money, they took
an interest in whatever North was able to salvage for the heirs.
This turned out to be virtually all the Ringling land holdings
and circus stock, oil stocks and others, which have since prov-
ed to be worth a fortune.
In addition to the undisputed land holdings in the Ringling
property, the owners also claim the right to fill in adjoining
submerged lands, which, if upheld, would add several thous-
and additional acres to the holdings.
At one time, the St. Armands-Lido Corp. had plans for de-
veloping Bird Key and its adjoining submerged lands into a new
modern Ringling Isles development that would have covered
about 500 .acres of Sarasota Bay around Bird Key. This project
never went any further than the developers' sketches.
It met with considerable opposition from citizens of the area
who fought against encroachment in the bay and cutting off
-the view from the mainland.
Whatever rights the new owners have to the submerged lands
adjoining their properties no doubt will have to be determined
by the courts eventually.
Arthur Vining Davis
RINGLING SALE -WHO BOUGHT?
The man behind the $13, 500, 000 Ringling land purchase in
Sarasota last week is a fabulously wealthy industrialist who
built a fortune in oil and aluminum and then came to Florida
to watch it multiply in real estate.
He is Arthur Vining Davis, a relict of the era of rugged in.
dividualists and industrial barons who will observe his 92nd
birthday on Saturday of this week at his Miami estate. He was
the right-hand of the late Andrew Mellon, Pittsburgh capital.
ist and industrialist who left his imprint in many fields, as a
great secretary of the treasury, an art collector, a builder of
corporations and a maker of fortunes.
In association with Mellon, Arthur Vining Davis saw the Al-
uminum Corp. of America become the world giant in its field;
tley nurtured the Gulf Oil Co. into world prominence; they
founded banks and built big empires.
When Davis retired with his fortune and moved to Miami
several years ago, he quietly began buying up all the choice
pieces of property he could find along the lower east coast, in
Palm Beach, Broward and Dade Counties, until, with more
than 100, 000 choice acres, he became the largest individual
land owner in his field. (to p. 10).
Less than a year ago, Davis selected the first two letters of
his three names and formed the Arvida Corp., chartered in
Delaware on July 30, 1958, and qualified to buy, sell, lease
and operate real estate developments.
In order to encourage public interest, stock in the Arvida
Corp. was placed on the market last December at $11 a share.
There were 12, 000, 000 shares of class A and B stocks.
Davis himself acquired 3, 500, 000 shares of Class B stock and
a $6, 900, 000 debenture in exchange for the realty holdings he
turned over to Arvida Corp. Within the year, the Arvida stock
rose to $24 a share and then settled back to around $21 a share,
giving Davis a $34, 000, 000 profit on paper in his Arvida hold-,
However, under the terms of his agreement with Arvida,
Davis is not permitted to sell any of his stock during the first
year, and can only sell as much as 400, 000 shares during any
subsequent year. He has said he has no intention of selling any
of the stock.
As of this month, more than 11, 000 investors owned more
than 2, 500,0000 other shares of Arvida.
Although the man behind Arvida is Davis, he is not active
in the day-to-day management of the corporation. He delegat-
ed this task to Milton N. Weir, a former associate of the fin-
ancier in the Gulf Oil Co.
Included in the Arvida holdings in addition to the newly
acquired Ringling properties are 72, 000 acres in Dade County
(Miami), 23, 000 acres in Broward (Fort Lauderdale) and more
than 5, 000 acres in Palm Beach County.
Weir, on whose shoulders Davis has placed the burden of
management of the Arvida Corp., has been active for the
past 10 years in the development of the lower east coast. He
is chairman of the board of M. H. Weir & Sons, lt, Realto and
is senior partner in Milton N. Weir & Sons, builders and invest-
ors, at Fort Lauderdale. He is president of Weir Plaza, large
Fort Lauderdale shopping center. He founded and is an officer
or director of several in Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach, Del-
ray Beach. Also, he is president and director of Arvida Corp.
Before his retirement, he headed all the Gulf Oil's subsidiary
Associated with Weir in the Arvida management is his son,
John N. Weir, vice president and general manager; Knox
Phagan, secretary treasurer, A. T. Knight, vice president and
sales manager; B. F. Marshall, assistant treasurerer, and F. M.
At the present, Arvida is engaged in two major real estate
developments on the east coast that are said to represent an
over-all $250, 000, 000 investment when completed. These
are the Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club estates and the
University City projects in the Boca Raton area, where Arvida
also owns the extensive Boca Raton Club properties.
In addition to his Florida real estate holdings, Davis has ex-
tensive properties in the Bahama Islands, including the Cat Cay
group; large citrus groves, and other interests.
Although 90 years old, Davis is still active and maintains a
personal interest in all his holdings. Always moderate, he is
said to start and finish the day with a tonic of rare old Bourbon.
RINGING SALE WHAT EFFECT ?
Residents of Longboat, Lido and St. Armands Keys are won-
dering today how far-reaching will be the effects of the $13,
500, 000 Ringling land deal consummated last week between
the St. Armands-Lido Realty Corp. and the Arvida Corp. of
The transaction embraces approximately 2, 000 acres of wa-
terfront property on Longboat, Lido, Bird, Coon and Otter Keys
in Sarasota Bay and along the Gulf of Mexico. It was the larg-
est single realty transaction in the post-war development period
in Sarasota County.
While the purchase price was announced at $13, 500, 000,
Milton N. Weir, president of the Arvida Corp., said his firm's
plans call for a $90, 000, 000 development program of exclus-
ive waterfront homesites, hotels, motels, apartments and shop-
ping facilities during the next few years.
Business and civic leaders in the area not only foresaw im-
measurable benefits from the Arvida Corp. program, but view-
ed the transaction also as a psychological boost for the effect it
Key Look-out, May 28, 1959
should have in stimulating other investors and developers in
They pointed out that if Arthur Vining Davis, the Miami
multi-millionaire industrialist and developer who formed the
Arvida Corp., has evidenced such confidence in Sarasota, this
fact should "loosen up" other capital projects in the area.
The vast Ringling holdings which have lain idle for many
years had been regarded as a stumbling block for development
of the keys. The Arvida program is expected to pave the way
toward a substantial new business boom, if carried forward as
announced by Mr. Weir.
The sellers were John Ringling North, the circus magnate,
and his two associates, Sidney Newman and Leonard Briscoe,
New York attorneys, who gained control of the John Ringling
estate properties in the long and involved settlement of the
estate. North, his brother, Henry, and their mother, Ida Ring-
ling North, were the principal heirs of John Ringling, brother
of Mrs. North.
Weir's announcement of the purchase came after more than
a year of negotiations for the Ringling holdings. The property
involved includes all of Bird Key, where Ida Ringling North's
residence now stands, all of Coon Key except the site of the
Sarasota Yacht Club; all of Otter Key, substantial vacantprop-
erty on Lido Key and most of Longboat Key in Sarasota County.
Weir said his plans call for development of at least 4,000
exclusive homesites, along with water and sewer facilities, as
well as the development of exclusive resort facilities, hotels,
motels, apartments, and business facilities to help serve them.
This would add 12, 000 to Longboat's population of 1, 200 resi-
While only $3, 500, 000 cash was involved in the transaction,
Wier said his firm had set up a guarantee fund for the balance
to insure an immediate start on the development program.
Fred Berger, St. Petersburg real estate broker in the deal,
said he would establish an office in Sarasota at once as head-
quarters for the development program.
RINGLING SALE CITY PLANS
An immediate reaction to the $13, 500, 000 Ringling land
sale last week involved the future of Sarasota's famed Lido
Casino on Lido Beach.
The city had been engaged in negotiating a private lease
agreement for the operation of the casino and its facilities at
the time the land deal was announced.
City Commissioner Jack Turner at once declared he thought
the city had acted too hastily in its decision to lease the cas-
ino in view of the tremendous impact the new land develop-
ment deal might have on-the future prospects of Lido Key and
Supper in Spurges'cabana on Casey Key last Sunday: Travis
Carrier, Muffle Spurge, Wendy Spurge, and Rusty Grauds.
Key Look-out, May 28, 1959
Commissioner Eddie Marable also said he felt the city could
negotiate a "much better deal now" that the Ringling trans-
action had been disclosed.
Sal Saprito had submitted what the city regarded as the best
of four bids from private enterprises seeking to take over the
city-owned facility, including its restaurant, bar, shops, bath-,
house, swimming pool, cabanas, and all else except the pub-
lic beach and parking areas, which were to continue to be
open free to the public.
It is considered a virtual certainty now that the city will
re-open the Lido negotiations as a result of the improved pros-
pects created by the Arvida Corp. purchase of the Ringling
ARTS AND LETTERS
Hayes Reaches Top
Joseph Hayes, the Lido Shores litterateur, appears destined
to make history on Broadway next season when three of his
plays are expected to be in production at the same time.
The young novelist and playwright, who does much of his
creative work in a unique den stop his Japanese style home on
West Way Drive, Lido Shores, is now enmeshed in the final
details of guiding his three new Broadway progenies along the
path to New York openings next fall and winter.
The trio of plays are entitled "Belle Denise," "The Midnight
Sun, and "Calculated Risk. "
"The Midnight Sun" also is scheduled to be published in nov-
el form by Random House, and also has been earmarked for
production as a motion picture. This should duplicate the
Hayes' achievement with "The Desperate Hours," his first suc-
cessful novel which also became a Broadway and motion pic-
ture hit as a drama of suspense.
"The Midnight Sun" is presently scheduled for a New York
premier in October, followed by "Calculated Risk" in mid-
November, and "Belle Denise" in January.
The last mentioned opus began as a comic novel idea, author
Hayes explained, based in New York and New Orleans, but

These VTO cars are going to make things quite a bit different

CHAPLSKI OF LONGBOAT
An opera singer who wanted
to be a ;-ip builder lives
quietly on Longboat Key. At
the end of a great *Xter.ation-
al career in coanert and opera
here and in Europe, he advises
the young to take a long close
look at singing as a profession
before plunging in.
He says, "The career ends
when the physical ability ends.
You can conduct or play an
instrument to the end. But the
voice fails long before. ~
Born in Warsaw in 1-903,

to use it this summer, but that
"we are going to need consid-
erable more money to finish
it." They further state that
the Playground Association
has promised some help but
members of the group are re-
minded that "we will have to
raise some money ourselves."
Also announced is the fact
that "new booths have been
installed. How do you like
them? Sure is nice to have a
place to sit, isn't it? These
cost us a little over $200 so
take good care of them."
They then go on to say that
they now have heat but (nat-
urally) don't need it now.
They surmise, and rightly so,
that members should remem-
ber it next winter when "we
may need it." But these young
people are smart, because
they ask the Chamber of Com-
merce to pardon them for that
Most important perhaps is
that "we are ready to start our
summer program. The first
Wednesday in June is the 3rd.
(How's that again?) "The
hours, they go on to say, "are
from 7:30 to 10:30 p. m. every
Wednesday, Friday and Satur-
day." They've planned sever-
al interesting events including
a moonlight boat ride and at
least one beach party. They
suggest that one should tell
all the teen agers on the Is-
land that "it pays to belong to
the Teen Club."

LONGBOAT The Longboat
League has conveyed its en-
dorsement of the Longboat Key
charter amendments in a letter
to Sen. Ed Price and Reps.
Bill Boylston and George Ed-
mondson of Sarasota County
and Manatee Reps. Robert
Knowles and Wilbur Boyd.
The letter stated in part:
"In these uncertain timeswhen
public servants are more often
blasted than praised, it is a
distinct pleasure to be able to
compliment both the Longboat
Key Town Commission and its
committees on amending the
charter for an intelligent ob-
jective job. In our opinion the
changes will be entirely bene.
ficial to the key. Of major
importance is the item pushing
forward the local elections
from October-November to
February-March, when most of
the resident.voters are intown.
"We also applaud the provis-
ion for completing the redis-
tricting at least 60 days prior
to any election.
"While there has been some
comment that the requirements
of recording campaign contri-
butions and expenditures, may
be irksome enough to discour-
age some candidates, it seems
to us that anyone aspiring to
the important office of Town
Commissioner should be happy
to comply. He would keep the
records anyway and if he ob-
jected to making them public
he ought not to be elected.
"All in all, they did a very
commendable piece of work. "
