FINE OUTLOOK FOR THE
NEXT SOUTH FLORIDA FAIR
Tampa, March 6. With the final
report of the South Florida Fair and
Gasparilla association, through the
executive committee' to the directors,
showing a surplus of $2-,362.42, this
year's business was completed. Only
in a tentative way, have plans been
discussed for next year; but it is cer certain
tain certain that the association will take up
plans actively next summer, with
something like seven months instead
of' seven weeks for preparations.
Probably the most notable feature
alout this year's fair was the fact
that the decision to hold the fair this
year was made less than two months
ahead of the opening date. It was in
response- to a demand for' the fair,
felt locally throughout South Florida,
that the men who compose the fair
association decided to hold it. Papers
in Tampa and other Florida cities and
towns called for a display of Flor Florida's
ida's Florida's resources, and a victory celebra celebration.
To undertake it, in the .v uncertain
conditions that followed the signing
of the armistice, and still prevailing
to no slight extent, was to incur per personal
sonal personal risk, for the fair association
had no funds left over from the two
previous fairs it had conducted, in
1116 and fl.917. -In fact, there was an
outstanding indebtedness of approxi approximately
mately approximately $3000, and the members of the
association were on notes for money
loaned by local 'banks to meet obliga obligations
tions obligations two years ago. To provide
against lack of funds and losses this
year, tne directors signed personal
notes for a total of $5000. The fair
association, is incorporated, but not
for profit. Thus a curious situation
arises, in that every stockholder is
liable and may be held for. indebted-1
ness which the association might in
cur, but can not and dbes not derive
any return from the money he paid in
when tne association was organized.
If there .were a failure, the creditors
of the association could collect from
the men who compose the association;
if there is a surplus, as there is this
year, Nit must be used for fair pur purposes,
poses, purposes, as it will be next year.
At the final meeting of the direc directors,
tors, directors, in discussing next year, it was
decided that South Florida counties
would be asked to consider the 1920
fair a certainty, and to make pro
vision in their annual budgets in July,
so that each may be represented in
the excellent way to which it is en
titled, next February. The fact that!
tLe county finances are usually ar
janged before active work on the fair
is undertaken has prevented progres-
sive sections from taking part.
' Newspapers came in for the high
est praise, the directors, realizing
that those counties which carry off
the honors, individually and as coun
ties, owe a great deal to their home
papers, who invariably stimulate in
terest in the fair, and take the leader
ship in securing representation. This
work for the community is a means
of developing and adding to local
prosperity and prestige which cannot
be calculated in any adequate man-

with American, British, French, Bel

no reason why they shouldn't stick if
they want to. Several of them will go
out of office in 1921, and it is probable
that the people will replace them with

do now is to make an agreement that
will enable the conflicting peoples to

felt as though I might never return.
I knew that some of us would have to
die and I thought it might as well be
me as anyone We were sixteen days
going from New York to Portsmouth,
England. We had a large convoy and
some of the ships were very slow. I
was on a new ship that could make
nineteen knots an hour. We had five five-inch
inch five-inch guns and lots of shells. We had
drills every day. I think that it was
in the afternoon of the fourteenth
day, we had the mattress drill and
had just gone down to put away our
mattresses when the alarm was given
to fall in at general quarters. Some
of the boys said that it must be a sub
this time, but I said, "No, they re
only fooling you. We are going to
get lots of drilling now, for we ar in
the war zone."
When J got up on deck I noticed
that the-ship was'going full speed,
and I looked up at the mast and saw
the red flag and knew that the subs
were there. They showed up twice
that evening but stayed out of range
of our guns. We had to stay on deck
that night, so we would be ready for
We stayed in Portsmouth a day or
two and then went ashore at five a. m
and marched through the town to a
railroad station, where we got on the
train and traveled until 2 o'clock,
when we got off at Cardiff, Wales.
We had five hours liberty to take a
look at the town, which is a real 'nice
place. A great many people would
stand along the streets to get a
chance to touch us for good luck.
They gave us books and cigarettes
and tobacco, and crowds followed, us
t3 the train to tell ns good-bye. We5
went from there to Fishguard, where
we went aboard an English steamer
going to Queenstown, Ireland, from
where we were sent to different ships.
Some went to destroyers and some to
repair ships, and I suppose some of
them are dead long ago. I was Nvell
acquainted with many of the boys who
were killed. I was talking to two of
them' about ten minutes before they
were killed, and I came so near to be being
ing being killed that I could never tell just
how it happened.
After I had been here for- awhile
and was getting acquainted. I asked
for a furlough and went to London,
to rest for awhile. Just as I was be beginning
ginning beginning to recruit from my long trip
the Germans came over and started
a racket. They would come 1 every
night about nine or ten o'clock nd
stay until two or three o'clock and
they made so much racket and ex excitement
citement excitement that no one could sleep.
They dropped bombs and fought with
their machine guns. The English
planes went up to meet them and the
guns were firing all over town. Of
course, I could not do anything. I was
looking for a little excitement but not
that kind. 'They furnished all the ex excitement
citement excitement that anyone could look for.. I
did not have time to think about get getting
ting getting hurt. I was thinking about the
poor women and children that "would
be killed or crippled and their homes
destroyed. When a bomb struck a
house it ruined it, and before I.could
get to any house that was struck the
ambulance would be there taking the
dead and wounded away. They were
right on the job. That is one week of
my life that I will never forget. Any
one that has never seen ail air raid in
a town cannot realize what a terrible
thing it it to see the poor women and
children murdered and crippled and
suffering. It would make any one
want to fight the Germans, and now
they are asking for mercy. Suppose
the Germans could have, won the war,
what would this "world be with such
people as that to rule it. I can sayl
one thing for the Americans, and that
it there has never been, a braver na nation

they were in battle they would be

were playing a baseball game. They
never seemed to mind it a bit. It
