thing new to boast about! The S.S. TRADEWIND, Caribbean
Atlantic Line's big cruise ship-registered at 9,200 tons of fun-
at-sea-sailed this week from the port of Miami, Florida's gate-
way to the Caribbean, on the first of her scheduled 13-day
cruises to the West Indies and South America! (See page 122)
S.S. TRADEWIND offers a family fare plan of 50 percent
discount to the second and third members of the family.
The primary decision to bring the TRADEWIND to Miami
was based upon the growing popularity of this port as the "gate-
way to the Caribbean"-a fact long recognized by air-carriers.
The S.S. TRADEWIND'S unusual itinerary attracted passen-
ger bookings from many Florida cities who, on this first of her
Caribbean Carnival Cruises, are due to visit a number of unus-
ual ports-of-call such as Port-au-Prince, Haiti; the island of
Aruba in the Netherlands West Indies; the walled-in city of
Cartagena on the north coast of South America; the San Bias
Islands off the Isthmus of Panama; the Panama Canal and the
British Colonial port of Kingston, Jamaica. (See page 122)

FLORIDA'S WEST COAST and
CENTRAL WEST FLORIDA
By LYNN LOCKWOOD
"Go West, Young Man" advised Horace Greeley,
many years ago, and if you take that good advice
today, you'll be heading for the west coast of
Florida, and you'll be glad you did!
Start your pioneering over the Tamiami Trail,
through the well-known Everglades. Take your
camera, and watch for the birdies, or the alligators.
You'll ultimately arrive in Naples, a beautiful and
typically tropical city devoted to boating and fish-
ing. A new slant on the old slogan "See Naples and
Die" is the fact that this city has grown from a
quiet residential area to one of Florida's outstand-
ing resort cities. Smart shopping centers, schools
and community buildings, as well as the fine fishing,
bathing and sailing are available.
There are new frontiers to be conquered, and
Bonita Springs, Estero, Fort Myers and Punta
Gorda are yours for the taking. If you are in-
trigued by pretty sounds, the name of Bokeelia,
on Charlotte Harbor, should make your heart beat
faster. Here you can stay at a fine motel for little
money . Try to be thirsty when you arrive,
because the drinking water at Bokeelia is the best
you've ever tasted. Don't hurry away. Stay around
and enjoy the excellent fishing this delightful west
coast town affords . Plan to linger awhile, and
love it.
Forge on to Fort Myers. Trained guides will
help you with your history here. The home of
Thomas A. Edison will mean a pleasant interlude
with the legacy of the Wizard of Menlo Park. Fort
Myers means miles of good beaches; smart restau-
rants and entertainment to the visitor. There's a
niceness about the people here that you'll find
heartwarming . and it has nothing to do with
tourist dollars. They just like to see you arrive,
and they hate to see you leave. Outstanding among
the good neighbors are the Lasburys, the Angers
and the Littletons, who live over in Englewood.
As a matter of fact, these Northerners arrived here
many years ago. They came, they saw and they
were conquered . even as you and I. Shell collec-
tors should ride a ferry to the Islands of Sanibel
and Captiva, just perfect for the hide-awayers, who
love sun and sand . .
And now, if you're the one man out of four,
wno takes his vacation for a rest, and not a rat
race . you'll act like a homing pigeon and head
tor the Island of Boca Grande. Check right in at
the Boca Grande Hotel . From the days of
Gaspar the Pirate, Boca Grande has been an island
hideaway for the people who want more than the
conventional Florida vacation . and they find
it here . and in the Boca Grande Hotel. It's
been whispered around that here is one of the finest
shelling beaches on the west coast. However, it is
no secret that the rates are more than reasonable;
that the fishing is the finniest; the sailboats the
windiest and the food, in a word, excellent . .
When you get out the old covered wagon again,
head for Floral City, Inverness and Hernando, for
a change of pace. These are quiet little Southern
towns, and Hernando, Florida, actually has a spot
called Hernando's Hideaway. Here you can fish,
sleep, eat or spin a yarn with George Hill, the
owner, who swears he doesn't sing a note.
If you brought along your hip boots on your
vacation you'll have a chance to use them at
Panacea, Florida. Mr. and Mrs. Barwick of this
hunting-happy town invite people to go goose-
hunting . so, if you care to get up at four ayem
to look up into the skies for the wily geese, look
up the Barwicks first . .
And now you're on your way to Pensacola, the
home of one of our greatest naval air stations.
Enjoy Pensacola beaches and the happy go lucky
atmosphere of this important city . Save a bit
of time to visit the State Capitol at Tallahassee
S. and take the long way home .Be Sure You
See All of Florida.

THE FLAGLER STORY


( Few railroads, as well known as the Florida
East Coast, operate entirely within the confines of
one state. While relatively small from the stand-
point of mileage operated, the Florida East Coast
Railway looms large in traffic potentialities, due
mainly to the continued rapid growth of the
territory it pioneered in developing. When the
line was extended to Miami in 1896, for example,
there were scarcely one hundred residents in all


as present Daytona Beach. He rebuilt these
properties, and where necessary widened them to
standard gauge, purchased better equipment, and
otherwise improved their facilities and service.
In 1889 and 1890, he built and opened the first
steel railroad bridge across the St. Johns River at
Jacksonville. Prior to this, freight and passengers
had to be ferried across the river to reach St.
Augustine and points south.

of south Florida. Now, this is the richest and
most densely populated section of the peninsula.
It all began back in the 1880's, when Henry
M. Flagler, a Standard Oil capitalist, arrived on
the Florida scene. St. Augustine was a sleepy old
town of around 2,000 inhabitants. Daytona was
a village of a few hundred. Farther south, the
coast was still virtually a wilderness.
Henry M. Flagler was impressed with the pos-
sibilities of St. Augustine as a fashionable resort,


As a result of these improvements, both St.
Augustine and Daytona took a new lease on life
and began to expand. But the traffic, thus far
created, was far from sufficient to put Flagler's
railroad holdings on a paying basis. Farther south,
along the Indian River, oranges and pineapples
were being grown in commercial quantities, and
shipped up the river by steamboat to a railhead
at Titusville, and thence inland to a railroad that
ran south from Sanford. Flagler decided to tap


Arrival of First Train at Miami, 1896


and decided to construct a luxurious hotel there.
At the same time, in 1885, he purchased the
bonds of the Jacksonville, St. Augustine and Hali-
fax River Railway, a little railroad opened in
1883 between Jacksonville and St. Augustine.
Flagler's hotel, the sumptuous Ponce de Leon,
was completed and opened at St. Augustine in
January of 1888. Soon afterward, he purchased
other small railroads in the vicinity of St. Augus-
tine, extending his railroad holdings as far south


this region and its potential traffic. Meanwhile,
he had visited Palm Beach, then a pioneer settle-
ment on Lake Worth, where he purchased a large
tract of land, and planned the construction of
another immense hotel.
In 1892, construction of the railroad south
from Daytona was commenced. By 1864, it
reached the shores of Lake Worth, where the
fabulous Royal Poinciana Hotel was opened, and
Palm Beach was transformed into a fashionable


erseas Highway Miami . Key West


--~Eual








winter resort. On the mainland, opposite Palm
Beach, where no settlement existed, a townsite
was laid out, which has since grown into the
city of West Palm Beach.
The Founding of Miami
West Palm Beach remained the southern termi-
nus of the railroad until 1896. During the winter
of 1894-95, a serious freeze occurred, which
destroyed fruit and truck crops as far south as
Lake Worth. It was a serious blow to the planters
and the railroad. Freight traffic dwindled to al-
most nothing. Flagler immediately ordered the
distribution of free seed, and had his railroad
haul fertilizer free of charge.
Still farther south lay the Miami River, and
beautiful Biscayne Bay. Here Mrs. Julia Tuttle,
a widow from Cleveland, Ohio, had large land
holdings, and had settled in 1891. The settlement
consisting of a few families, was chiefly an Indian
trading post for the Seminoles, who came down

Harvey's Groves, Cocoa, Fla.


the Miami River out of the Everglades to trade.
Shortly after the disastrous freeze of 1894-95,
James E. Ingraham, one of Flagler's trusted lieu-
tenants, made an inspection trip into this section,
where he was delighted to find fruit and vege-
tables untouched. Mrs. Julia Tuttle, and the
Brickells, the latter operators of the trading post
at Miami, offered to divide their large land

















Miami in 1891
holdings with Flagler, if he would extend his
railroad down to Biscayne Bay. Ingraham hasten-
ed back to St. Augustine to report these findings
to his chief, who soon arranged to visit Miami in
person. Further negotiations followed, and in
1896 the Florida East Coast Railway was ex-
tended to Miami, where a handful of pioneers
gathered to greet the first train.
Bridging the Florida Keys
Henry M. Flagler was growing old. He had
reached an age when most wealthy men are satis-
fied to retire, yet the most daring achievement
of his career lay before him. Having failed to
find satisfactory channel and port facilities at
Miami, Flagler began to look still farther south
to Key West. The city had a fine deep-water
harbor, was only 90 miles from Cuba, and was
strategically located in relation to the west Indies,
Central and South America. The actual begin-
ning of work on the Panama Canal tended to
further enhance the importance of Key West as
a naval base and commercial port.

The building of a railroad across the Florida
Keys to Key West was a daring and expensive
undertaking. The island city, surrounded by water
on all sides, lay over one hundred miles from the
Florida mainland. The building of the line in-
volved filling in wide expanses of shallow water
between some islands, the construction of long
bridges across the deep water channels between
still others which, in some cases were several
miles apart. The engineers found ready only the
air to breathe. Men, materials, food, equipment,
and even drinking water had to be brought from
remote sources.
Construction south of Homestead began in
1904. In 1909 a severe storm carried away sec-
tions of the completed embankment, swept some
of the equipment and barges out to sea. The
damage was repaired and work went on. Plans
had to be altered to provide more miles of bridges
than had been originally anticipated.
Henry M. Flagler was aging rapidly. In 1911
orders were issued to rush the work with all
possible speed. January 2nd, 1912, marked Flag-
!er's 82nd birthday, and only a few miles were
still to be finished. On January 22nd of that year,
he rode the first train into Key West, where a
three-day celebration was held in his honor. In
May of 1913 his life quietly came to an end at
Palm Beach. He had created an "American Riv-
iera," and extended his railroad to the southern-
most city in the United States.
On Labor Day of 1935, another storm lashed
the Florida Keys. Again miles of the railway
embankment were washed away, and the track
over much of the route was left a torn and
twisted wreckage. The huge expense of restoring
this portion of the railway proved so great that
it was decided to abandon its operation which,
due to extremely heavy maintenance, had not
proved profitable.
The Overseas Highway now follows about the
same route across the storied Keys, utilizing the
sturdy railway bridges and viaducts, which span
wide expanses of almost open sea. The southern
terminus of the Florida East Coast Railway has
since remained at Florida City on the mainland.

With the cool, refreshing ocean breeze sweeping the pool-cabana area and the large grassed
lounging area, it offers a quiet, relaxing day in the sun. Sprinkled with colorful beach umbrellas,
tables and lounge chairs, the Olympic-size, fresh-water pool area provides an ideal environment for
the good life.
One of the greatest assets of the OCEAN RANCH is something they could not build or buy.
And that, is the friendly atmosphere that prevails. The formula for success is simple. "Treat each
customer as though he is the most important man ever to stay at the OCEAN RANCH HOTEL."
It is popular in price and built for enjoyment.


Ocean Ranch Hotel
MIAMI


LOCATED on beautiful Biscayne Bay, just three
minutes from the heart of downtown Miami, is
the amazing OCEAN RANCH HOTEL. Well known
as Miami's most complete and unusual resort
hotel, the OCEAN RANCH has steadily gained in
popularity since it was opened to the public
about three years ago. Originally designed and
constructed as a private club for wealthy per-
sons, it is now offering its facilities to the gen-
zral public. Expansive in area and landscaping,
modern in its facilities and popular in price, the
OCEAN RANCH has rapidly taken its rightful
place as one of Miami's finest hotels.
With the cool, refreshing ocean breeze sweep-
ing the pool-cabana area and the large, grassed
lounging area, it offers a quiet, relaxing day in
the sun. Sprinkled with colorful beach umbrellas,
:ables and lounge chairs, the Olympic-size, fresh-
water swimming pool area provides an ideal
place to relax. Shuffleboard courts and a fine
water ski school offer fun and entertainment for
the more "ambitious" persons. While located only
three minutes from the heart of downtown Mi-
ami, the OCEAN RANCH is away from the con-
gestion, confusion, and noise of street traffic.
One of the greatest assets of the OCEAN RANCH
is something they could not build or buy. That
is the friendly atmosphere that prevails. You can
almost "feel" it as you enter the grounds. Truly,

Reddy Kilowatt Says:-
Greetings From
FLORIDA
POWER CORPORATION
LAKE WALES


here is a place built for enjoyment. Its facilities
are so arranged as to create a "family aire" to
the hotel. The friendliest of the guests, as well
as the employees, is something seldom found in
resort hotels. Greatly responsible for this atmos-
phere and for the success of the hotel are the
men who have guided it during these few years.
One such man is E. M. "Monty" Steele, resident
manager for the past two seasons. Mr. Steele is
well known in Miami and Miami Beach hotel
circles, having managed hotels in both cities. He
is known for his merchandising abilities, person-
ality and directional capabilities in handling staff
operations and employees. His advertising direc-
tion during the past two years has been instru-
mental in the continually increasing volume of
business the OCEAN RANCH has enjoyed during
that period. The personal attention he gives to
the comfort and pleasure of each guest assures
many repeat guests and OCEAN RANCH "boosters."
One cannot help feeling the confidence and
enthusiasm Mr. Steele and his staff has for the
future of the OCEAN RANCH. The strides of ad-
vancement that have been made in the short
period of their public operation, they contend,
is just a start. Their formula for success is sim-
ple. "Treat each customer as though he is the
most important man ever to stay at your hotel."
Apparently the theory works.

Flagler Beach...
Flagler Beach attracts great industrial interests
and sun-loving folk alike, all seeking the varied
benefits of a fine Florida location. Situated on
the northeast Florida coast, midway between
historic St. Augustine and lively Daytona Beach,
Flagler Beach straddles Florida A1A and is inter-
sected by Highway 11. It is also a port on the
famous Intra-coastal Waterway. The beautiful
Halifax River is available for both pleasure pur-
suits and inexpensive water shipments . an
air terminus is handy at Daytona Beach. In fact,
the central location of Flagler Beach brings any
point in the state within a few hours' reach. This
area was selected by John D. Rockefeller and
Owen D. Young for their retirement homes.

Ormond Beach...
Pop: 6,000. Five miles north of Daytona Beach
on U.S. 1 and State Hwy A1A. Beautiful sand
Beach on the Atlantic Ocean. A continuation of
World Famous Daytona Beach. Tourists drive
their cars on the hard-packed sands. One of the
widest beaches in the World. Tomoka State Park,
Scenic drives. Swimming, Fishing, Boating, Golf,
Tennis and Shuffleboard. Year Round Resort.
Sunlit sea and golden sand at Ormond Beach
with a matchless winter climate have attracted
the wealth of America and Europe, and will
continue to do so. For a dream-fulfilling vacation
-within your budget-or for a long-sought-for
home setting, pack up your dreams n and aim
straight to the prettiest, homiest spot on Florida's
whole enchanting coastline.
You're in beautiful Ormond Beach! Breathe
the unsurpassed sea air . the breeze-blown
mingled scents of semi-tropical flowers! You are
standing forty feet above sea level, gazing out
upon a fantastic sheen of sunlit blues, greens and
purples, edged with dancing white flowers of
surf and spume. And what a beach, that incred-
ible breadth of sparkling white, color-splashed
with gay bathing suits, beach umbrellas, cabanas!
Yes, and as far as eye can see, to north or south,
scores of pleasure cars go lazing along the firm
safe sand.
All this to be yours . a gift that comes
wrapped up with that precious home you will
buy or build. Much more, too, not a penny
extra charge. A perfect year-round climate . .
at Ormond Beach you're breeze-kissed in sum-
mer, sun-blessed in winter months. Four divine
seasons, with freedom from fear of dangerous
storms. At Ormond Beach, the surf, the sea, the
beautiful Halifax River, the mysterious Tomoka
River, all are yours for swimming, boating, fish-
ing, adventuring.
Today's residents proudly show visitors the
ruins of that historic little town of tepees which
sheltered the first European to explore this area,
the adventuring Frenchman, Jean Ribault. The
town was named Ormond in 1880, for the orig-
inal holder of the land grant, and later was
called Ormond Beach.
On the lush banks of the Halifax, The Case-
ments, former winter home of John D. Rocke-
feller, stands as a monument to our health-giving
climate. The physicians of the multi-millionaire
advised Ormond Beach for his winter home.
Ormond Beach is proud that other famed
Americaps also have chosen it for their home.
Put no prouder than it is to be the choice of


typical Mr. and Mrs. America. Be you wealthy
or of modest means Ormond Beach will fulfill
for you the way of life you have yearned for.
During leisure hours, whatever your age, you'll
live in swim and sun togs beneath rustling palm
trees. You'll do your errands in Ormond Beach's
abundant shopping center in whatever clothes
are comfiest. You'll watch your youngsters grow
into tanned, rugged little followers of Pan. And
whatever the age of your marriage, you will
find, in Florida's freedom from care, a joyful,
lifelong companionship that will seem a second
honeymoon.
One of America's most charming spots is the
little town of Ormond Beach, Florida. Located
approximately six miles from Daytona Beach,
and covering an area of eight square miles, it
shares the same 500 foot wide sandy beach, the
same ideal climate, and the same tropical beauty
as Daytona Beach, a vacation playground second
to none in the world.
Ormond Beach today has a population of about
5,000. The location, 40 feet above sea level, is
matchless, since it is on the main route of the
modern Florida East Coast Railroad and High-
ways U.S. 1 and Florida A1A. Also, the Inter-
coastal Waterways, serving the coast line between
New York and Miami, passes via the Halifax
River at Ormond Beach. A bus line offers hourly
service and Delta, Eastern and National air lines
maintain regularly-scheduled flights from Day-
tona Beach Airport to all parts of the country.
Within a one-day trip from Ormond Beach are
such major points of interest as Jacksonville; St.
Augustine, the oldest city in the U.S.; Marine
Studios, presenting the most amazing display of
live marine exhibits ever assembled; and Silver
Springs, nature's under-water fairyland.
In late years Ormond Beach has more than
doubled in size. This tremendous increase is to
be credited largely to tourists and visitors, many
of whom have decided to settle down and spend
their lives here. Building permits valued at
$700,000 were issued the past year. Excellent in-
dustrial sites are available.
A unique resort development in the Daytona
Beach-Ormond Beach area is attracting thou-
sands of visitors. It is Ellinor Village, a modern
resort with 650 units. A recent newspaper article
pictured the village as like a collection of jewels
set against a background of green velvet. "The
purple of amethyst, the blue of turquoise, the
russet of amber, the green of emerald-all are
there in colorful tile roofs, screened by the fol-
iage of oak and bay." In operation only two
years, the village has an entirely new approach
to "giving the visitor what he wants, within his
budget."

Vero Beach
Population is near 6,000. On U.S. 1 and State
Hwys A1A and 60 it is located on the Atlantic
Ocean just 140 miles north of Miami and 220
miles south of Jacksonville. Beautiful McKee
Jungle Gardens. Ocean Beach. Municipal Park
on the Ocean. Training Grounds for Brooklyn
Dodgers. Hunting, Fishing, Swimming and Golf.
Also Tennis Courts and a Community Center
for Tourists. Center of the Famous Indian River
Citrus Country. Cattle Ranching, Sugar Cane
and Citrus Fruits.
No tour of Florida is complete without a visit
to Vero Beach. Among the smaller resort centers
along the Atlantic seaboard of "Fabulous Flor-
ida," Vero Beach ranks at the top in attractive-
ness and popularity. It is located centrally on the
coast, about 200 miles south of Jacksonville, and
140 miles north of Miami, within convenient
driving distance of many of the other interesting
spots which tourists like to visit. The city fronts
on the Atlantic and is also cut through by the
Indian River with its navigable channel, a part of
the Inland Waterway system.
With a population that has grown from 3056
in 1940 to over 5900 in 1953, Vero Beach has
made provision to accommodate nearly double
this number in a great variety of facilities avail-
able both summer and winter. These range from
modest trailer parks, motels and apartments on
up to the more luxurious hotels and private clubs.
The municipality has provided park facilities
along the ocean front for the convenience of
those who enjoy sun and surf bathing. There are
picnic pavilions, fireplaces, dressing rooms and
rest rooms, with ample parking space.

Vero Beach is county seat of Indian River
County which lies in the heart of the famous
citrus fruit belt bearing the Indian River name.
Top quality oranges, tangerines and grapefruit are
produced in the fine "hammock" soil, there being
17,000 acres in fruiting trees. Packing houses
which prepare this fruit for shipment are always
of interest to tourists. The return to grove own-
ers each year is around $7,000,000. Other types
of general agriculture also contribute substan-
tially to the county's income.
Whether it be for a brief vacation, for a sea-
sonal visit, or for establishment of a permanently
comfortable home, all comers find a warm wel-
come and evidence of cordial hospitality in Vero
Beach.
Other recreational attractions center around
the Tourist Club in Pocahontas Park, including
tennis courts, a battery of 12 shuffleboards, and
roque courts, as well as children's playground
equipment.
Two particular features of this community gain
for it a widespread notoriety. One is McKee
Jungle Gardens, an 80-acre tract of native sub-
tropical forest that has been supplemented by the
introduction of thousands of exotic trees, shrubs
and flowers. The area is threaded by clear paths
so that visitors led by well-informed guides, can
inspect intimately all of the items of interest. In
the greenhouses, as well as along the paths, a
profusion of orchids can be seen, the plants being
found in all stages of growth from the tiny seed
to the gorgeous bloom. A recent addition is a
Wild Animal Compound in which 350 rare and
familiar wild animal specimens are on display.

Vero Beach co.,u.ied
Golfers are enthusiastic about the two fine
golf courses open to the public. The Riomar Club
course of nine holes is located adjacent to the
beach, while Vero Beach Country Club course
of 18 holes has a beautiful setting on the main-
land convenient to many of the residential fa-
cilities.
Fishing is a most popular passtime in the
Vero Beach area. The Indian River provides an
easily accessible source of several kinds of salt-
water fish.
In the city, well laid out and beautified resi-
dential areas are the sites of many fine homes, a
goodly number of which are occupied by folks
who have retired and have sought the favorable
climate and restful atmosphere of Florida for
their declining years.
The other widely publicized feature is the
Spring training headquarters of the Brooklyn
National League Baseball Club, with its 18 affil-
iated teams. Several major league exhibition
games are played each season in the "little gem"
Holman Stadium, and through most of March
and April games between minor league teams are
staged daily.

Fort Pierce ...
* FORT PIERCE, gateway to Florida's famous
east coast resort area, is a friendly, informal city
which combines the wealth and activity of the
citrus and cattle industries with the carefree sun
sports of beach and Atlantic Ocean.
Featuring vacations lower in cost than are
offered by other Gold Coast resorts, Fort Pierce
bases its appeal chiefly on its warm climate,
exceptionally varied fresh and salt water fishing
and safe, gently sloping ocean beaches. Many
new and modern housekeeping units are located
near shopping and recreational facilities.
Fort Pierce is located on U. S. Highway No.
1, 225 miles south of Jacksonville. It is the
largest city of the Indian River section. Because
of its location and economic importance, high-


ways, waterways and rail lines converge upon
Fort Pierce so that it can truly be described as a
gate city to tropical Florida.
Along the Indian River Drive, one of Florida's
most beautiful scenic highways, sightseers view a
profusion of exotic trees, flowers, shrubs and
birds peculiar to the tropic zone. The fabulous
Saint Lucie County "back Country," is criss-
crossed by good roads allowing easy access to
fragrant groves, picturesque cabbage palm ham-
mocks, vast vegetable fields and verdant pastures.
An old and historic area, Fort Pierce was
known to ancient Indian tribes as wonderful fish-
ing grounds. Peculiarly favorable reef, inlet and
shore line conditions have enabled it to retain
and enhance that reputation. Sportsmen here
have a very wide choice of kinds of fish and
types of fishing, including deep sea pursuit of
sailfish, dolphin, kingfish and others.


FORT PIER E
The Fort Pierce Hotel overlooking the water
is particularly attractive to those seeking
accommodations in an atmosphere of quiet
dignity. From the attractive block long
lobby and sun rooms to the tastefully
furnished guest rooms which are steam heated, this Hotel is inviting and truly delight-
ful . European Plan with special Fall and Spring rates prevailing. For the more
energetic visitor, The Fort Pierce Hotel offers all of the more popular sports . .
golfing, beach bathing, boating, fishing . .There is also available a fine Roof Solarium,
as well as Ping Pong Tables and Shuffleboard Court facilities.

FLORIDA FOR FISHING

THE FULL YEAR 'ROUND
By GEORGE PHILLIPS
THERE IS no fishing like Florida fishing, and
that goes for the folks who live in Florida and
for the Yankees who come down from the won-
derful north country. One of the great things
about Florida fishing is that it lasts all year. There
is GOOD FISHING somewhere in Florida every
day of the year.
Everyone has a place to fish . from the
bridges with live bait, cut bait, flies or plugs thou-
sands of fish are taken every day . good eatin'-
fish like the pompano, snapper, grouper and hun-
dreds of other species . from the shore the surf
casters are ever-busy . from the charter boats
like Lonnie Campbell's WAHOO at Pier 5, Mi-
ami, you get the big thrill of sailfish, wahoo, tuna,
dolphin and marlin.
Although Florida has EVERYTHING, trips to
the Islands are more and more popular because
there you have the opportunity for more and big-
ger fish. If you want the best of everything, write
to S. Stanley Griffin, P.O. Box 547, West Palm
Beach, Florida for fishing at WALKER CAY. M.
Ray Applegate of Muncie was there during the
Christmas holidays and reports bonefish, sails,
marlin and all of the exciting fish were running.
Spring and summer fishing is GREAT at Wal-
ker Cay, Bimini, Cat Cay, Andros, Puerto Rico,
Isle of Pines (Cuba). Chalk's Flying Service will
take you from the McArthur Causeway, Miami,
to the Islands.
The best yacht harbor in America is Bahia
Mar of Fort Lauderdale, with a shopping plaza
and yacht basin that is really complete.
Last week we were discussing WHERE one
should go for good fishing. That's really a big
subject. Bill Guenther of Cincinnati went direct
to Boynton Beach, put his name in at the boat
docks, and with three other fishermen engaged
a charter boat for a half day. Each paid the skip-
per ten dollars. Results? Yes, sir. three sailfish,
four dolphin and an assortment of other big-uns.
He says of all the places in Florida, Boynton
Beach strikes his fancy the most.
One of the great places of Florida is Palm
Beach and West Palm Beach, and we have been
sending many persons to the Juno Beach Fishing
Pier ten miles north of West Palm Beach where
U. S. Highway 1 meets the ocean.
Hollywood, Dania, Pompano Beach, and most
of the towns north of Miami offer the fisherman
and his family excellent fishing.
On the west coast spring brings many tarpon
tournaments at Boca Grande, Fort Myers Beach,
Venice, Nokomis, Sarasota, St. Petersburg, Clear-
water, Naples and Marco. These places offer you
some of the finest tarpon fishing in all the world.

Stuart...
The St. Lucie canal goes from the Atlantic
Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico and passes through
Stuart. It is deep enough to take boats up to
large cruisers. Very good fishing is found in this
area, both fresh and salt water. Charter boats,
and outboards are available.
... BUT DON'T FORGET THAT STUART IS
THE SAILFISH CAPITAL OF THE WORLD.

describe and point out everything of interest.


These cruises leave from the PALM BEACH
FERRY DOCK, FLAGLER AND FIRST STS.,
WEST PALM BEACH.
Florida's famous and unforgettable Jungle cruise
leaves at 10 A.M. This is a guided seventy mile
jungle cruise up the Loxahatchee that takes ap-
proximately 6 hours. You cruise deep into the
old mysterious Everglades, viewing thrilling miles
of tropical beauty, unmolested by man. In the
heart of the Jungle we see giant cypress trees,
festooned with moss, Mangrove trees, wild or-
chids and many alien trees and flowers. The al-
ligator still haunts this region. An occasional
whir of a Crane or bird's note is heard as we
glide along, camera ready and even a wild cat
may be seen. All this as you relax in comfort
before our return to the Palm Beaches.
Then there is the Ferry. The most scenic way
to visit between the Palm Beaches is to ride this
Ferry. It is a traditional must and has been in
operation for 60 years. Ferry runs continuously.
Whether you're off to the beach for a day in the
sun, or visiting famous name shops . or
dressed for an evening's gaiety, you will see that
everyone rides the Ferry. Music on board. "You
haven't see the Palm Beaches if you haven't been
on the Ferry."
One cruise on beautiful Lake Worth sails past
beautiful estates direct to Bianca's Birds and
Strange Animals where you will see alligator
wrestling and Seminole Indians. You'll be enter-
tained by a trained Monkey and Baboon Show,
in addition see a rare collection of monkeys from
all over the world. You'll long remember the
performing and talking birds including some of
the rarest in the world and costing up to $10,000
a pair. Bring your camera for thrilling shots
amid a luxuriant tropical setting."

Lake Worth ...

LAKE WORTH: Enjoying one of the most
equable and pleasant winter climates in the
United States, with summers air-cooled by fresh
ocean breezes, the City of Lake Worth is
eminently fitted from every standpoint for the
finest in year around living and vacationing.
Ideally located on the East Coast of the Florida
Peninsula, midway between the North and South
boundaries of Palm Beach county, Lake Worth


owes its outstanding climate in winter to the
Gulf Stream which flows closer to this area
than at any other point on the East Coast of
Florida. Both the ocean, which is a mile from the
center of the downtown business section, and
Lake Worth, from which the town gets its name,
act as natural twin cooling systems during the
warmer summer months, helping to maintain
temperatures which year after year average only
81.4 degrees in July.

and it is less than 3 minutes from dock to Sailfish!
Boynton Beach and Delray Beach truly "have
everything" for the sun-seeker or the home loving.
And this IS the Game Fish Capital of the World!
Ideally located on the Southern East Coast it
is warmed in the Winter by the nearby Gulf Stream
and cooled by Atlantic Trade Winds in Summer.
No more healthful and enjoyable climate can be
found anywhere. Long famous for its ocean and
inland fishing, a wide variety of other sports and
recreation such as golf, polo, tennis, shuffleboard
and bathing is available for all ages. The area
provides excellent accommodations and restau-
rants.
Both Boynton Beach and Delray Beach have
city governments that function unceasingly for the
best in schools, fine streets, pure water supply,
well lighted highways and excellent police and
fire protection service. Churches of all denom-
inations are here. Banking and shopping facilities
are more than adequate and are modern and
progressive. The civic and veterans clubs, fraternal
and women's organizations are actively at work
with the city governments to keep abreast of the
times, providing for all educational, religious and
social needs. Excellent private schools are located
here. Libraries, Public Parks, Beaches and Play-
grounds are open to all. In Delray Beach the
Little Theatre offers the legitimate and there are
other theatres and drive-in-movies to choose from
a variety of current pictures.
The entire section has developed into one of
the finest flower-growing areas, with the Gladioli
industry alone netting more than a million dollars
a year. West of civic centers, yet within city
limits, chicken farms and citrus groves abound
and profitable truck garden farms are very much
in evidence. Great strides are now being made to
develop the entire area into a close-knit, functional
and profitable farming, horticultural; commercial-
industrial entity. Fruit growing, cattle ranching go
along apace and hand-in-hand with the vacation-
land-playground and cities of homes projection.
Carefully planned, controlled zoning restrictions
are the rule that only farsightedness can provide.
The economy is further enhanced and supple-
mented by growing and distributing large crops
of vegetables for the local state and northern


markets. According to reports this industry is
already in the $10,000,000 class.
The people of Boynton Beach and Delray Beach
are jealous of its quiet charm but to those who
appreciate the finer things of life found there,
they extend a welcome as warm as tropical sun-
shine and, to them, the "come on down and
stay" invitation is cordially extended and they
tell you, "Be one of us, you will just love living
here, as we do."
For those who travel by cruiser, the Intra-
coastal Waterway runs through from Miami to
Northeast Atlantic Coast Cities, and pleasure
boat dockage is provided only one block from
the centers of the cities.
Fishing at its best in both salt and fresh water
has been known for a long time, yet HUNTING
at its best is also found here, as much game
abounds within a few minutes drive. Hunters find
game plentiful in season. Plenty of doves, quail,
snipe and ducks around. Experienced guides are
available for jaunts to the Everglades-haunt of
the deer and wild turkey.
Entering Boynton Beach from the North on
either U.S. 1 or State Highway A1A (Ocean
Boulevard) and Delray Beach from the South,
the dense tropical foliage strikes one's senses as
if passing through a veritable fairyland. Rows of
coconut trees are laden with nuts, flowers are a
riot of color everywhere and several nurseries add
to the luxuriant vegetation. Because of sensible
restrictions and practiced layout, the cities'
central areas are very attractive with their wide,
well paved streets and boulevards planted with
palm trees, interspersed with flowering tropical
shrubs and green lawns. It is a fairyland!
Again, coming into Boynton Beach from the
North, but on U.S. 1 only, the traveler will have
visited Melton's Autorama and Bianca's Birds in
Hypoluxo. Upon entering the North End of Boyn-
ton Beach a stop will be made at the Waite Bird
Farm (the original bird farm) because it is one
of the best and older attractions and most com-
plete in its selection of birds, monkeys, apes, 150
alligators of all ages and other unusual animal
life. Of course, a visit to these attractions will
long be remembered for they are very much worth
the time it takes to see them. And, now, on the
same side of U.S. Highway No. 1, just a short
distance South, THE GARDEN comes into view.
Don't drive PAST THE GARDEN! Park your
car in front and go in. It is FREE! Here. and
here only, in all your travels, no matter where
you have been before, you will discover much
and enjoy forever, the hours that will pass so
pleasantly, yet so swiftly-in THE GARDEN,
where Nature is the Artist! Acres of wondrous,
spectacular beauty made up of Nature's colorful.
Lish verdure of palms, flowers and plants, exotic
and exquisite in their fantastic beauty. Here is 30
years of tropical growth. Flowers and fruits-
palms and ferns-cacti and air-plants. Flagstone
walks, summer houses that are secluded and
covered with vines and flowers; streams and rustic
bridges; patios and cathedral-like vistas where the
Royal Palms grow. Glades and glens! Velvety
lawns and the hidden delights for you to explore!
All this is THE GARDEN-a smorgasbord of
revealing enjoyment and excitement! You should
partake of each delight! This garden will make
you realize that NATURE IS THE ARTIST-and
NOT MAN!
Time will pass so quickly at THE GARDEN
that you will want to stay in Boynton Beach and.

HISTORY: Boca Raton-from the Spanish
Boca de Ratones, meaning mouth of the sharp
pointed rocks-populated first by the Indians
whose existence is recorded by various relics and
mounds which have been brought to light. Later
during the Sixteenth and Seventeenth centuries
came the pirates out of the Caribbean sea, at-
tracted by the Inlet and its quiet hidden lake.
Many treasure hunts have centered in this vi-
cinity and relics of sunken galleons are still to be
seen.
Later towards the end of the Nineteenth cen-
tury came the first settlers, with the barefoot mail-
man, walking the beach in lieu of any inland
trail. And today, the modern wonderland of the
Gold Coast of Southeastern Florida-the modern
progressive town of Boca Raton-blending to-
gether the old architecture with the modern,
God-made beauty with man-made beauty, farm-
ing and small business, side by side with luxury.
The quietness and charm of Boca Raton has ap-
pealed to followers of the fine Arts. Here you
will find artists, authors, sculptors and those of
the higher profession, still active or retired, as
well as farming, handicraft, and the lighter in-
dustry suitable to this community.
TOURISTS: Boca Raton offers-An invitation
to spend your well-earned vacation with us in our
town which has been mentioned with distinction
in leading magazines as the most beautiful little
town in our country.
Relax in your own type of accommodation-at
the fabulous World-famous Boca Raton Hotel
and Club with accommodations for 650; one of
the many ultra modern apartment-motels with
beautiful patios and sundecks or in a wide selec-
tion of guest rooms in private homes. Prices vary
to fit your need. You will find all accommoda-
tions located on or near the beach, within a few
minutes drive to modern restaurants, cocktail
lounges and shopping center.


Enjoy a vacation of serenity which is becoming
increasingly difficult to find. Boca Raton's prox-
imity to horse and dog racing, jai alai and night
clubs provides more exciting entertainment if de-
sired. Here in Boca Raton you will find economi-
cally priced accommodations, providing maximum
value for minimum expenditure.
We invite you to write to the Chamber of Com-
merce, stating the type of accommodation you
would like. You will receive their prompt reply.
RESIDENTS: Boca Raton is the ideal place to
make your future all-year-round home. It is set
in the heart of the most beautiful scenic section
of the southeast Florida Coast, with its high pro-
tective ocean ridge spanning the beach and Lake
Boca Raton lying at the mouth of the ocean in-
let. Aside from the charm of this natural setting
of high dry elevation, you will find not only the
most architecturally desirable tropical homes and
homesites (both inland and waterfront) in south-
ern Florida, but friendly people waiting to wel-
come you. Life here is what you care to make it
-simple and casual in rural serenity or more
widely cosmopolitan by available membership in
either of our fine clubs. Our shopping facilities
are varied and adequate, serviced by helpful and
progressive merchants all centrally located within
a few city blocks. Our present building require-
ments form an unspoiled model town and are
planned for your protection. The house of your
dreams and your own way of life may be rea-
lized in Boca Raton whether they be extremely
modest or luxurious. We take pride in the well
balanced expansion of this sunny, healthful,

tablished residential areas wisely planned and

squash, pole beans. Truck gardens with roasting
ear corn are now being grown.
These crops are grown for northern markets
during the months of November thru May on
farms equipped with canals and ditches set up
for irrigation and drainage.
The soil in this area is fairly level and of a
loose sandy loam which requires varying formula
and amounts of commercial fertilizers for quick
maturing of the various crops.

sons of the year are grown. The delicious mango
has many varieties maturing from spring 'til fall.
Surinan cherries, avocados, guavas, limes grow

been under way for some time now has one plant
in operation the year round.

ing to the fore with many acres being built into
improved pasturage. The
grasses being used are pan-
gola, the clovers, bahia, St.
Augustine, with Bermuda
being best for the increas-
ing herds of Angus, Brah-
man and many others. The
raising of hays and feeds is
now being undertaken.

Rugged Individualist

makes for easy riders


LAST WEEK down on Coral Way in Mi-
ami the police set up a trap.
It consisted of a radar truck and two
motor cops. For hours they pulled in
one out of three-a sad, sad proportion.
Suddenly, the well ran dry. Not only
did traffic come to a minimum, but the
few who did come through were creep-
ing at a snail's pace. After a time, the
law's agents sent out a scout. He, after
so long a search, found an old, old man
standing squarely under the signal light
at 22nd Avenue waving off the fast-
coming traffic.
"There's radar ahead," he said, "Turn
Off."
That man had a mighty good thing;
and they couldn't charge him.
That's all to the story-except for the
fact there was a man who believed in
something-believed in something
enough to do something about it.
B'damn we feel the same way. We
love to do printing-we propose to do
printing-and we'd like to do printing
for you. Further, we're as independent
as a guy standing under a signal light.

THE WORLD BELOW
By EMMI COTTEN
To THE average fish, a human being is a vague
and unimportant thing; for in the fabulous world
that has the water's surface for its sky, there are
no people.
To a fish, a swimming person is merely a bub-
ble on the ceiling of his universe; a diver is a
grotesque slow motion puppet. The man on the
other end of the fishing line is a monster; and
surely the blurred staring faces on the outside of
an aquarium do little to convince a fish that man
is one of the higher forms of life.
But, however small may be the amusement
value of a person to a fish, watching fish has
proved to be a highly entertaining pastime for a
good many humans. For some years there have
been enough aquarium fiends in this country to
make the breeding of tropical fish a major in-
dustry.
Fresh water aquariums are no longer news.
Few people, however, know that it is as easy to
balance a salt aquarium as a fresh water one,
and that it is both more exciting and a lot more
fun. A marine aquarium is a window to the sea.
Not only do you catch your own creatures in-
stead of buying them from a store, but the va-
riety of inmates in a salt aquarium is endless.
Besides fish, there are all sorts of Things. There
is also the possibility that you might trap some-
thing that has never before been seen, for ichthy-
ologists agree that the ocean still holds many
secrets.
Here, where the Gulf Stream hugs the keys, to
miss having a marine aquarium is to miss one of
the best shows that Florida has to offer. To be-
gin one you need only an aquarium, available at
any pet store, a small net, a larger dip net, and
a bucket. Put in an inch or so of clean sand
from the beach, and four or five green sea plants.
Fill the aquarium with sea water, and you are
ready to start collecting. From your first expedi-
tion you would bring back several oysters or
clams to circulate the water; they are found in
crevices of rocks along the beach or hitched to
rocks out in the water; look for them and for
your plants at low tide. You should also bring
back a few hermit crabs for scavengers. They are
the small creatures that crawl around tide pools
in other people's shells.


Your aquarium should be placed where it gets
strong daylight-a few hours of direct sunlight
will do no harm-or it should have at least five
hours daily of strong artificial light. Other props
that will come in handy are one or two-gallon
glass jars, obtainable from the nearest delicates-
sen, and several small fish hooks made from pins
or heated needles; having no barbs, they are
easy to remove from the mouth of a fish.

S.. A BRIEF STORY OF TREES AND SHRUBS FRUITS

AND FLOWERS OF SOUTH FLORIDA


(Foreword by the Editor)
In subtropical and tropical South Florida there
are so many and such a variety of growing things,
(flora) and so little known out of the state, that
visitors as well as long-time residents are con-
stantly asking, "What is the name of this tree-
this plant-this fruit or this flower?" and, "Is it
a native of Florida?"-"Of what value is it?"
Inquiries often come through the mail to THE
GUIDE with snapshots to be identified. At times
we can tell what they are but more often we
cannot.
Rather than being "wrong" too often should
we attempt to name each tree, shrub or plant
brought to our attention, THE GUIDE offers a
list of books at the end of this review that may
be found at the local libraries for those who wish
to obtain the correct answers. As for THE
GUIDE the Editor and Staff will do likewise.
Good pictures and equally accurate description
will help all of us to know more about this un-
usual vegetation and the books are sure to pro-
vide the information.
The least that can be said is that Florida has
a greater number of native species of trees than
any other state. Furthermore we know that the
State of Florida is blessed with a year-around
equable climate and a natural beauty which has
permitted the introduction and cultivation of a
wealth of tropical and subtropical shrubs, plants
and trees, fruitbearing, decorative and otherwise,
from many parts of the world, and the majority
of trees were introduced so long ago that many
of them have become well established and are
today as accepted a part of Florida life as the
native flora. Quite a few of the fruits are truly
exotic. Apart from their novelty they are of
greater interest for their beauty and taste appeal
as well as for their historical and geographical
backgrounds. Some of the fruits, little known to
northerners, have qualified for commercial culti-
vation and export and the demand for them is
growing fast.
In the two short stories that follow in THE
GUIDE both the popular and scientific names of
the plants are used. The medicinal, edible, pois-
onous and other valuable characteristics will, like-
wise, be very brief.
The Editor of THE GUIDE desires the read-
er to profit by reading this review and believes
it will contribute sufficient interest to extend the
reader's knowledge of the wonderful things found
growing in Florida into research and a still more
thorough discovery of the wonders of subtropical
and tropical plant life.

SOME RARE TROPICAL FRUITS OF FLORIDA
The subject matter and illustrations which follow are selections from the book, FIFTY
TROPICAL FRUITS,* by Kendal and Julia Morton, Co-Directors of the Morton Collec-
tanea, University of Miami, and are reprinted by permission of the publisher, Text
House, Inc.. Coral Gables, Fla. *($3.50 at any bookstore).


The modest, brown Sapodilla doesn't catch
the eye, but its flavor and melting juiciness
should not be missed.

THE SAPODILLA
Achras zapota Linn. (Sapota achras Mill.,
Manilkara zapotilla Gilly)-For centuries, the
Mayan Indians of Central America have boiled
down the sticky, milk-white latex of the wild
Sapodilla trees and chewed the resultant chicle,
as the Indians of North America chewed the
gum from their spruce trees. Now, the modern
world has adopted chicle as the basis of an in-
dustry-the manufacture of chewing gum-in
which millions of pounds are used each year. For
centuries, too, the native boys of the Tropics
have known that the gummy latex might be
spread on the branches of trees to catch alighting
birds!
The sapodilla, also called Naseberry, Nispero
and "Dilly," is usually grown from seed in the
Tropics, and there is consequently great variation
in the shape, size and quality of its fruits. The
flesh varies from yellowish- to reddish-brown and
in many fruits is very fine, with smooth texture
and sweet, rich flavor' in others it is a little grainy
and oversweet. The fruit is picked when mature
but still hard and is held until it is just soft to
the touch. It is then luscious eaten out-of-hand
or halved and spooned from the skin. One should
be careful, however, to avoid the accidental
swallowing of a seed, for there is often a small
hook on the edge and this has been known to
catch in the throat. The flesh is also a treat cut
in sections in fruit salads and garnished with
mayonnaise or lime juice.
The sapodilla has often been stated to be us-
able only as a fresh, raw fruit, to be unsuited
for cooking and to yield no food products. On
the contrary, in many areas of the Tropics, the
fruits are crushed and the sweet juice boiled
down to a fine natural sirup or "honey," a vine-
gar is made from the fermented juice, and the
mashed fruit is added to breads and to pancakes.
Furthermore, an excellent jam can be made from
the fruits and they can be combined with citrus
in delicious marmalades.
Sapodillas are in season from about May until
August and a few are found in lesser quantities
almost throughout the year.


The Guava, famed for its jelly, may be
round, oval, or pear-shaped, usually with
pale yellow skin, and has white, yellow or
pink flesh.
THE GUAVA
Psidium spp.-The common or so-called Mexi-
can Guava (P. guajava Linn.) is one of the old-
est cultivated fruits of Tropical America, for it
was grown by the Indians long before the arrival
of the Spanish explorers. Despite its long history,
however, it is still a relatively new fruit to many,
for the high pectin and acid content of most
guavas has caused the fruit to be esteemed almost
solely for jelly-making and outside the Tropics
its many other virtues are little known. The use
of the fruit, both fresh and canned, could well
be greatly expanded.
There are many varieties, from small fruits.
virtually filled with seeds, to large, improved
types with very thick flesh. Some are sweet and
very agreeable out-of-hand or as dessert or salad
fruits, while others are stronger of flavor and
more acid. The halved fruits, peeled if desired
and with the seedy central pulp scooped out, are
called guava "shells" a and are delicious stewed
in sirup, or canned. They are also sliced and
used on shortcake or upside-down cake and in
puddings, pies or fritters, and the soft central
pulp, after it has been strained to remove the
seeds, may be combined with th e shells in cook-
ing. Or the entire fruit may be mashed and strain-
ed and is excellent in fruit punch, sherbets and
ice cream. Guava paste, butter, jam, marmalade,
chutney, relish and sirup and sweet-pickled
guavas are other products, and guava juice, pre-
pared by boiling guavas in water and straining,
is rich in Vitamin C and may be combined with
other fruit juices, milk or ginger ale, in making
refreshing beverages.
Fresh guavas are plentiful from about July
through October, and a few may be found both
earlier and later. Guava jelly and guava ice cream
are made and sold locally, and canners preserve
the guava shells in sirup.
Besides the common species, the Cattley or
Strawberry guava (P. littorale Raddi, syn. P.
cattleianum Sabine) and the Yellow Cattley guava
(P. littorale lucidum) are planted as ornamentals.
Both have small round fruits, the former dark
red, the latter yellow, and both are excellent
whether raw or cooked. (See Page 86)

Some Rare Tropical Fruits of Florida... (Coi,nueiwd I,,ro Page 78)


The versatile Avocado meat substitute, Ripe, tree-dried Tamarinds and one re-
salad vegetable and dessert fruit, moved from the shell; a sauce of tamarinds
Eand brown sugar and a glass of tamarind
THE AVOCADO ade.


Persea americana Mill. Grown in ancient times
as a staple food by the Aztecs and Mayas of
Mexico and Central America and introduced into
northern South America long before the arrival
of Europeans, the Avocado or Alligator Pear re-
portedly did not reach the West Indies until it was
carried there by the early Spanish explorers,
though it was destined to become one of the most
important fruits of the Islands, and of Florida.
Avocados are commonly grown in dooryards
and groves and, while many trees are seedlings,
there are numerous budded varieties of the
thicker-shelled, usually rough Guatemalan race
and the thinner-skinned, smooth, so-called West
Indian or South American race, as well as the
Trapp (P. americana leiogyna).
In Tropical America, the avocado is generally
eaten as the main dish of a meal, in lieu of meat,
a practice dietetically justified by its high fat
content and resultant caloric value. Elsewhere, it
has been adopted mainly as a meal adjunct, in
the form of a salad, and there are many who
have not yet discovered how good it is when
cubed and added to hot soup, chili con care or
omelettes, and who have never eaten it as a des-
sert wth sugar and lemon juice, or enjoyed avo-
cado ice cream. Then too, its old colloquial
names of Midshipman's Butter, Butter Fear or
Vegetable Butter, suggest its use as a spread, and
it makes a delicious sandwich filling when mashed
and seasoned with vinegar, pepper, chopped on-
ion, sweet pickles, or other spicy ingredients, and
mayonnaise. Though one seldom tires of avocados
au nature, their increasing abundance in season
invites variation in manner of service and such
dishes as diced avocado and lobster, avocado and
chopped date salad, curried avocado, and avo-
cado and pineapple sherbet, may one day be
more commonly seen.
Avocados, green and purple, rough and smooth,
are common in the markets from late July until
November, with late varieties continuing into
January and even February.


THE TAMARIND
Tainarindus indica Linn.-Native to tropical
East Africa and possibly southern Asia, the
Tamarind was first introduced into Europe from
India during the Middle Ages, and Europeans at
first thought the brown pods to be the fruits of a
palm tree, probably because of the interpretation
of the Arabian and Persian names, tamr hindi
and tamar-u'l-Hind, meaning Indian Date or Date
of India. The tree, however, is wholly unlike a
palm. It reaches great size with widespread
branches and attractive feathery foliage. Intro-
duced into Tropical America long ago, it has
become naturalized and is now common, both
wild and cultivated.
In South Florida and in the West Indies, it is
a familiar tree and its fruits are used in many
ways. The young, tender, and very acid fruits
are cooked in rice and used for seasoning fish
and meats. The fully grown and ripe, but un-
dried fruits, their pulp much like a very acid
apple butter in appearance and taste, are shelled
and eaten out-of-hand. The tree-dried fruits are
shelled and preserved in sugar or sirup, or are
cooked and strained to a thick sauce for use in
making tamarind ade, a refreshing and healthful
cold drink. The native children of Tropical
America, too, have their own way of eating
tamarinds. When the fruits are full grown but
not yet ripe, they are called "swells" and the
children cover them with hot coals until the
pulp foams and bursts the shell. The shell is then
peeled off and the sizzling tamarind, dipped in a
mixture of salt and wood ashes, is eaten while
still hot. Young green tamarinds are found on the
trees in December and January and the fruits
continue to develop until about April, when they
ripen and begin to dry, the dried fruits remain-
ing on the tree in good condition for some time.

HETTY MEYER'S
PINE TREE INN
German-American Cuisine
2441 S. W. 37th Ave., (Douglas Rd.)
Hetty Myer's PINE TREE INN has become
an exclusive family rendezvous where guests re-
lax as they dine in comfort at this charming Inn
with that Old World atmosphere.
Wonderful, original German dishes which in-
clude such favorites as: Schnitzels a la Holstein;
Schlachtplatter, Szegedine Goulash; Pouladen
served with buttered noodles; Sauerbraten with
potato pancake; Champagne Sauerkraut is served
with Kasseler Ripchen (smoked marinated pork
loin roasted) and there are different kinds of
Schnitzels prepared from prime milk-fed veal and
other prime meats. These are all teasers of the
appetite and very pleasing to the diners.
Mrs. Meyer, herself prepares a special steak
sauce for the broiled steaks and filet mignon. A
chef's salad, different than served elsewhere is
part of the dinner.
The menu at the PINE TREE INN is so
varied and wonderful that mention of all the
nice foods to eat is difficult to tell about in so
short a space but mention must be made of the
lobster thermidor which is made of juicy chunks
of boiled lobster in a creamy wine sauce and
baked in the shell. And for those who like to
drink with their meals, the best of imported
beers and wines are served.
Going tastily with the various meat dishes is
the Holland-Hieneken and the German-Loewen-
brau. Also Wuerzburger Hofbrau-all served in
frosted Pilsner glasses.
Wines enhance the fish dishes and one of the
favorite wines is the famous white Rhine-Lieb-
frauenmilch.
Private parties are especially catered to and
one perfect example of hospitality and fondness
of her guests is that personal touch which Mrs.
Meyer provides to diners who are celebrating
with birthday parties. At the PINE TREE INN
Mrs. Meyer is always ready to add her good
wishes by providing a birthday cake and it is her
custom to do this as a pleasing, complimentary
gesture.
Considerable comment and attention is always
shown by Mrs. Meyer's guests to the many pieces
of value and beauty which adorn and grace the
Inn and which add to its charm. Beautiful paint-
ings in appropriate frame; the 40 Beer Steins in
themselves a valuable collection and many other
interesting collecteria of rarity, beauty and value.
For dining at its best; for foods that are very
special in their taste appeal; for comfortable
dining in an atmosphere of Old World Charm
we repeat, that The PINE TREE INN has even
more to offer. For reservations, just call Mrs.
Meyer on the phone (HI 6-6480) and you will
have her personal attention and your party din-
ner will be very successful to you in every way.
And Now, remember the address of The PINE

THE MIAMI AREA


Miami's FamoL

HISTORY
THE "GREATER MIAMI AREA" presents a factual
but fascinating story of the fastest growing area
in the country, in which over 500,000 permanent
residents now live, work and play. An estimated
four million visitors come here annually, a large
number of whom are Latin Americans.
Competent authorities estimate there will be
one million permanent residents within the next
ten years, with unprecedented opportunities for
business, cultural and educational development.
Modern Miami is mostly the result of the
vision and driving force of two people-Henry
M. Flagler and Julia D. Tuttle; Miami Beach, the
nation's finest playground, that of Carl Fisher,
John S. Collins and Thomas J. Pancoast; Coral
Gables, the City Beautiful, that of George E.
Merrick. Together, these three communities give
the entire area its character and influence its fu-
tur plans and development.
Miami ...
Largest City in Florida. Greater Miami and
Dade County Population about 600,000. In Miami
Proper about 300,000. On Biscayne Bay and
U.S. 1, and U.S. 41. With a well balanced eco-
nomy in the sense of Tourism, Commerce and
Industry and a wonderful climate, this area ap-
pears to be destined to become the largest city
in the South within a very few Years. With Miami
Beach it is considered the playground of the
Americas. Horse and Dog Racing, Fishing Tour-
naments, Night Clubs, Boat Races, Water Skiing,
Excellent Fishing, Bayfront Park and Sightseeing
tours. International Transportation Center. A
Great Airport. Cruise Ships and very many at-
tractions such as, Musa Isle Indian Village, Tropi-
cal Hobbyland, Rare Bird Farm, Monkey Jungle,
Serpentarium, Parrot Jungle, Rock Gate Park,
Matheson Hammock and many other attractions
and events. SPORTS: Tennis, Golf, Fishing, Boat-
ing Shuffleboard, Water Skiing, Football, Base-
ball, Yachting, Etc. Distribution and Transporta-
tion leader for South Florida.
MIAMI was built on the vision of Henry M. Flag-
ler and Julia D. Tuttle. In 1895 two families
lived on either side of the mouth of the Miami
River but one year later it was a blooming city
without going thru the usual process of becoming
a village and a town.
Its beginning actually can be traced to 1836


is Skyline ..
when Fort Dallas was built at the mouth of the
Miami River to control the Seminole Indians.
The government abandoned it a few years later
but some of the garrison stayed on to become
permanent settlers.
Dr. Henry Perrine, a noted scientist of the day
was the first developer of vision in 1838 Congress
granted him a six-square mile tract of land to
experiment in tropical fruits. He was killed and
36 families brought in from the Bahamas were
driven out by the Indians. Several others, includ-
ing the Biscayne Bay Co. and Adam C. Richards
who sold vegetables to the northern market tried
to develop the area but could arouse no real
interest.
Then, in 1891, Mrs. Julia Tuttle came from
Cleveland, Ohio, bought out the lands of the
defunct Biscayne Bay Co. and tried to interest
the outside world. She tried vainly until 1895 to
have Henry M. Flagler extend his East Coast
Railroad from Palm Beach to Miami. In that
year in exchange for half her land he contracted
to build the road and later built many houses
and the famous Royal Palm Hotel, now gone, on
the land she donated. By 1896 Miami had so
grown that it was incorporated as a city with a
population of about 1500.
Up until 1889 Fort Dallas had also been the
County seat. Then in 1889 it moved to Juno, near
Palm Beach but by 1899, three years after the
incorporation of Miami the latter was again
made the county seat due to the growth of its
population. From then on Miami marched for-
ward with amazing speed. Epidemics, a bursted
boom and depression did not stop it, and the
story of its phenomenal growth is still fresh in
memory and current history.

Miami Beach ...
Located on the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne
Bay across from Miami its population is close to
50,000. On State Highway A1A. Lincoln Road
Shops. Many varied places for entertainment.
Fine Beaches, Night Clubs and Recreational
Centers and Parks. Lummus Park ten blocks
long on the Ocean with a public Beach. Many
fine Beaches, Fishing Tournaments, Golf Courses,
Tennis, Shuffleboard, Boating, Water Skiing, etc.,
Year-round Vacation Spot. Beach Hotels are
fabulous in their beauty, appointments and facili-
ties for guests comforts.
