Florida holds the greatest opportunities of a lifetime today for the young American, was the opinion of John. Wana-

maker, multi-millionaire merchant prince of Philadelphia, who- pent .his "winters in Florida. .

"Fifty years ago or more," said Wanamaker, "the young men of the east were advised by Horace Greeley to go west.

"If Horace Greeley were alive today he would advise those very same men to go south- and to Florida, which in the next

decade will grow faster other state in the union,*' he said.

"Florida's future i{before her. She is a sleeping giant just beginning to stir. Its population will double in five

years and will .treble in ten years;" he prophesied."The .

eyes of the western hemisphere are being turned Florida-wards and now is the time for ambitious young men

to get into the state and grow up prosperous with it."
