Foreword

Florida, representing the greatest opportunity
.- of any national area, cannot be completely de-
..' scribed in a single book. It takes hundreds. That's
S' why this one is backed by a warehouse filled with
S-" millions of dollars worth of maps, books and dope
sheets. This, so you can enlarge your knowledge
; in the field you select-at a price anyone can af-
ford-a four-cent stamp.
S. e We have endeavored to collect the sources for
S ).. the books you need. No one ever collects all the
S .things he wants to, so there are still more to come
.. in future editions. The job will never be completed.
S: For years you-and thousands of Florida fans
.-have been asking questions. Every time one of your
S ; questions came to us, it was put on record. The more
1.- ., sH^i %k you asked about one subject, the greater detail we
Learn, to enlarge upon your answer. That is why
S.... ." ,there are now whole books written on the subjects
you ask about-yes sometimes whole shelves of
books.
'-- .' 'This is the book that you wrote. When you fin-
,rt. ... *,^ .-, .ish reading these lines you will thumb through t-e
:r pages to see if there is something you want from our
S' benevolent State of Florida, and the corporations
S who wish to advertise their goods. Somewhere in
_.. the maze of free books your questions will be an-
"- swered. They say that the best things in life are
. free, so here's a whole basketful of "best things"
ida-and profit corporations.
4* . z'.- '.. .... However, if you have a question for which there
is no reference indicated between these covers, then
write to me. Enclose a stamped, self addressed en-
S. velope for the reply. You might ask a new question
...*. "; which could be the basis of a successful search for
another answer.
S .It has been a pleasure to be your editor.
RUBE ALLYN



The rules of the game are simple. For each book you desire, you must write a letter or a post card.
It requires a separate letter for each book. The donors will not send a multitude of books on one
request because some people write for books they do not need. It is generally supposed that each
person is interested in a particular subject, thus one particular book should be sufficient. Family and
friends may have books also-there is no limit to the number one may choose. Just remember the old
adage, "don't put more on your plate than you can eat"--or don't order more books than you can read.

SAVE YOUR SPECIMENS


BRING THEM BACK ALIVE


This ingenious device invented by a member of
Great Outdoors Association, does solve the problem
of bringing back alive, the rare specimens you may
discover on your nature trips. Fishermen also find it
invaluable in keeping alive their bait fish and
shrimp.
Fish must have oxygen to stay alive. The Great
Outdoors Aerator introduces large quantities of air
into the water in finely divided particles, thus per-
mitting rapid oxygen absorption. Live specimens
can be kept alive for days.
It can be clamped to a bait well or any live fish
container. Runs on an outboard or automobile bat-
tery, either 6 volt or 12 volt. In the car a plug for
the cigarette lighter is sufficient. In a boat, two
easy to operate clamps attach to the battery term-
inals.


* 4 4t

The kind of an instrument that every natur-
alist would want to own. ideal ror an aquair-
ium owner.


SHIPPED ANYWHERE IN THE UNITED STATES


THESE ARE THE FEATURES
ECONOMY: Draws less than one amp. of
current.
STURDY: Fully enclosed, powerful magnet
motor; 6 or 12 volt (specify voltage).
ADJUSTABLE: Bracket is adjustable for
any angle or depth in the tank.
EXTRA STRONG: Has aluminum and brass
clamp which holds firmly to the tank or
bait well.
BEST CORDS: A six-foot heavy duty cord
with non-corrosive clips, attaches to
battery.
POSITIVE CONTROL: On and off switch is
fool-proof. Often it is only necessary to
operate half of each hour.


This instrument is a marvel of perfection, can
be used in fresh or salt water. It is constructed of
the very best materials. Built to last a lifetime. So
perfectly balanced as to cause a very tiny battery
drain. Would run for hours on dry cells. Hundreds
of minnows were kept alive in a small tank in tests.
Ordinarily these fish would be dead in minutes
without the Aerator.
The entire instrument is corrosion resistant. All
underwater parts are brass or bronze. When in-
stalling the aerator, it is best to position, by tiltin;,
toward the center of the container. All parts and
service is available for members of Great Outdoors
Association and naturalists co-operating to discover
new specimens.
