Our Distinguished Neighbor
Opie Read, known for half a cen-
tury as an American novelist and plat-
form speaker, lives at Howey-in-the-
Hills during the winter, spending the
summer with his son in Chicago.
Mr. Read is greatly beloved by the
residents of Howey-in-the-Hills. His
radiant personality is a highlight in
this pleasant community. He has a
kind word for men, women, children
and dogs.
After the evening dinner, when the
guests gather in the lobby of the hotel,
Mr. Read (they introduce him as
"Friend Opie") gets up and speaks-
a typical Opie Read talk, always
athrill with the humor, the pathos, the
philosophy, the quaint characteriza-
tions, the dramatic climaxes that have
spread his fame afar.
At these neighborly meetings, Opie
may lift old Lem Jucklins from the
pages of fiction where he read "the old
book from kiver to kiver" but would
fight chickens, and make him step forth
as a living person. Or Opie may tell
the tender story of Joe Parker, train
robber for a night whose sweetheart
won him a pardon. Again, Opie may
unleash his inimitable eloquence to
paint with gorgeous words the glories
* of 'sunrise and sunset in the rich, red
hills of Howey's citrus empire. And
when Opie paints 'em, they stay paiht-
Then suddenly from the heights of
his vivid rhetoric, he drops to the slow
tempo of a philosophy all his own. Like,
for instance:
"Many a draft is drawn on the future
that is not honored in the clearing
house of hope."
At 74 Opie Read remains a dynamo
of energy.
"Never wrote so much in all my life
as right now," he confessed the other
day, "and I'd be writing still more if
that damned typewriter didn't stick on
me so much."
Yes, he pounds out his own copy; he
believes it the only efficient method
and has no sympathy with those who
say it muddles their thoughts to use a
machine. To be sure, Opie has not al-
ways used a typewriter.
"Wrote my way around the world
with pen and ink," he chuckles between
puffs on the 10-inch pipe with his full
name in silver on the bowl, the pipe be-
ing a gift from admiring friends
Just now Opie is writing his mem-
oires and he will have the book ready
for publication by early fall but whether
it will first be published in installments
in a nationally circulated magazine is
something not decided. Ed Howe got
$10,000 for his serial rights but some
publishers object, so Opie wants to
smoke awhile on the subject before de-
ciding. s
Opie Read does his writing during I
the forenoon. He has many invitations c
to attend affairs all over the state,
often to speak, and some of these he ac-
cepts, frequently at a distinct sacrifice
of his personal program. Wheh free to
do so he spends the afternoon on the t
golf links. After dinner he mingles
with the guests at the hotel but if along a
about 8:30 he appears ill at ease he
might be induced to play a little penny
ante, if the limit is strictly ten cents,
and no roodles or stud, and with a ten
cent limit no one can lose in a game o
with Opie for whatever the cost, the a
game is still worth more than the price a
of admission, o
Opie has been coming to Howey-in- c
the-Hills for several years. F
"Will I be back next winter?" he re- n
peats in answer to a query and then s
with the fascinating Opie Read smile: n
"Will I be back? After a man lives s

in.. Chicago for five months he's en- r
titled to a reward, isn't he; of course F
I'll be back." t,


SThe Polk County Record, published
at Bartow, had the following editorial
in its issue of April 16 under the head-
ing, "Another Fairy Tale Inspired by
Political Animus:"
"Those who know 'Bill' Howey, head
of the Howey-in-the-Hills enterprise,
without rival in Florida as a successful
demonstration of the citrus industry as
a paying proposition, seriously doubted
the yarn said to have been sent out by
the Florida Growers Clearing House
association to the effect that the de-
feated Republican candidate for gover-
nor of Florida had advocated the cut-
ting down of every seedling orange
tree in this state.
"Florida newspapers and news-
papers outside the state commented on
the alleged statement and many were
the epithets hurled at the head of the
gentleman from the highlands of Flor-
"Now Mr. Howey flatly deniees the ac-
cusations and in a public statement is-
sued a few days ago says this:
I did not make such an assertion. At
a green fruit meeting in Tavares March
30 it was admitted by some of the growers
and shippers present that seedling oranges
are shipped green during December in
order to take care of the holiday trade
in southern states.
Following that assertion I said-and I
quote from a stenographic notation-
if seedling oranges whether mature or
not, as stated in this room, must be moved
during the month of December to fill the
needs of the southern trade, then we had
better get rid of our seedling groves and,
like California, get down to varieties that
we can mature and put on the market at
the proper time.
Seedling oranges are luscious in Janu-
ary and February but not in December
at which time they are immature and
unfit for human consumption and will
destroy confidence and integrity "in the
product in the minds of the consumer
who will refuse to repeat his order. The
Growers committee is only against the
shipment of immature green fruit. The
shipping interests seem to want to move
these seedlings in December at a time
when they are unfit for consumption to
prevent competition in the movement ofr
Pineapple oranges in January. Hence
the reason for the above statement. *
I emphasized at the Tavares meeting
that rather than ship out green fruit we
had better cut down seedling orange trees,
as I had done on 57 acres.
There you have the facts of the in-
cident and they are far away from the
untrue, unfair and premeditativ.ely poi-
sonous propaganda that is flooding the
state. It is preposterous to presume that,
as the largest grower of citrus in the
state, I would favor anything inimical to
the best interests of the industry and it
is a well established fact that I whole-
heartedly cooperate in every honest move-
ment to aid in the profitable production
of quality citrus fruits.
That the present attack on me is
partisan and political is shown by the
fact that the press matter, letters and
telegrams sent out by the Citrus Growers
Clearing House association refer to me
as "recent candidate for governor." Why -
telegrams to every part of the state, cost- t
ing perhaps hundreds if not thousands of
dollars, should be sent out as an added
burden to members of the clearing house tj
association is most amazing, especially as
these wires are a personal attack on me.
Who authorized the sending of these tele- a
grams? Sending telegrams, even if they
are foolish, cost money.
I have had 20 years experience in Flor-
ida and I want to say that Howey groves
are not in politics.n
'While the Polk County Record is t
quarely behind the Clearing House t
program as it applies to improvement 2
)f the citrus industry, we make the t
prediction that if there are many more
'breaks" such as that in connection f
rith the recent election of members of v
he governing body and now this 'latest d
'dream" affecting W. J. Howey, it will o
neet sudden and merited death."
We have had occasion to say a lot
.f sarcastic things about the lack of ,
statewide advertising fund, and we
,re just naturally going to keep right s
*n talking about it until something is

thirty days longer than they would
ordinarily stay.
Just ponder for a moment and con-
sider what could be done with an ad-
vertising appropriation of a million
dollars. We have had one of the best
tourist seasons in the history of this
state-without any collective attempt
to advertise. People have come here
this winter of their own volition, and
doubtless they wlll come again 'next
year, but just think how many more
thousands could be induced to come, it
they were invited. Every hotel, every
chamber of commerce, every railroad
and steamship line and every commer-
cial enterprise in the state should con-
tribute something toward such an ef-
fort. Florida has been fortunate this
year in getting a lot of publicity. The
many noted personages who have been
here, the prize fight in Miami, and
other factors which may be lacking next
season, have helped to generate many
front page newspaper stories. But we
cannot rely on that vehicle alone.
News stories and publicity help to tell
the people about Florida, but it takes
real advertising to sell them.
We have only to look toward the
west to see that Florida has plenty of
competition, and it is imperative that
we do something about it. The All
Year Club of Southern California will
spend more than $1,000,000 this year.
The Californians, Inc., have a fund of
at least half that amount. San Diego,
Seattle, Spokane, the Pacific Northwest
Tourist Association, Douglas Arizona,
Salt Lake City, Denver and other cities
are going to make themselves heard.
The California Club, San Diego, with
$100,000 for advertising, will make a
good big bid for tourists and permanent
residents. Seattle has voted $25,000
for advertising in the national maga-
zines between March and June. Puget
Sounders and British Coluinbians As-
sociated, a cooperative organization
representing Victoria, Vancouver, Seat-
tle, Tacoma, Bellilngham, Longview,
Everett and other cities, has completed
an advertising program to sell that sec-
tion to the rest of the United States.
Spokane has an appropriation of $100,-
Some one has suggested that the
state appropriate a million dollars out
of the gas tax revenues, on the plea that
the expenditure would bring enough
more tourists into the state to more
than pay for it in increased gas taxes.
That sounds like a' reasonable idea.
Why not try it at any rate? Florida is
on its way back. Advertising will
clinch the job and bring us many more
thousands of tourists and permanent

Full grown Florida grapefruit and
oranges stand supreme.
But immature, green, sour fruit is a
leaguee on the market and an abomina-
ion unto the Lord.
Greedy growers, realizing that an
anxious north eagerly awaits each year
the arrival of Florida fruit, rush their
rreen stuff out, artificially colored, and
Ls a result the consumer knits his brow
and puckers his lips and swears he
never again will buy "that stuff."
The harm of the green fruit swindle
:an hardly be over estimated,.
Hence, the present vigorous move- i
nent on the part of honest growers to
ialt by law the green fruit crime. To t
ie sure, Florida long has had an anti-
reen fruit law, but it has been found
effective. Now it is proposed to put
eeth, real hound dog teeth, in the law
.nd the proposition is now pending be- I
ore the Florida legislature, which con-
'ened April 2 at Tallahassee for a 60 ;

Every person interested in preserv-
ng the integrity of Florida citrus
ruits should help to bring about this
legislation. t
It is unthinkable that the great cit- t
us industry of this state shall continue -

hippers who do so much to demoralize

Several newspapers, ministers
and a mutitude of "moralists"
have deplored the fact that so
many people rushed down into
Florida merely to see a prize
fight. One old Ifellow, several
times defeated as a candidate for
a meager office, thus delivered
"The Lord won't much longer
put up with such encouragement
of immorality. Storms will gather
and blow a reproach upon us for
giving countenance to satan's by-
play. Lightening will shoot down
and consume the Maypole of ini-
quity. On a street corner in
Miami a man stood, praying for
the redemption of the world, and

No, to see the caperings of the
devil's sons."
Yes, but what was behind the
selection of a city in Florida for
this scene of muscular action?
rhe managers knew that the best
possible advertisement for the
fight was the climate of Florida

rI HoweySo














By Betty B. Carpenter
With delightful April rapidly
making way for sunny May, the
winter visitors reluctantly pack
their bags to return to the grind
of city business with youth re-
newed and pep stored up from
days of play in Florida's match-
less sunshine.
Although vacation plans are in
the air at Howey it will be
several weeks yet before we bid
our friends farewell for the sum-
mer and return the visits of our
northern neighbors. Meantime life
goes merrily on.

Miss Florence Emery, who is
on the staff of the Johns Hopkins
hospital, enjoyed a week's vaca-
tion here recently with her par-
emnts, Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Emery.
On the afternoon of the elev-
enth, Mrs. C. H. Emery gave a
bridge paity honoring her daugh-
ter, Florence. After several pro-
gressions, Mrs. C. D. Ifdder held
high score and was awarded first
prize. Mrs. Emery served her
guests with delicious refreshments
at the close of the afternoon.
Guests of the party were Mrs. W.
E. Bell, Mrs. F. W. Douglas, Mrs.
C. D. Kidder and Mrs. R. B. Gib-

Saturday night parties have be-
come almost a ritual. The most
recent one was given on the night
of the 13th, by Mr. Opie Read,
Mr. R. B. Gibson and Mr. G. W.
Carpenter, at the Gibson home on
Palm avenue. A buffet supper
was served and the evening was
spent in dancing. Invited to this
occasion were Mr. and Mrs. W. J.
Howey, Mr. and Mrs. L. V. Morell,
Mrs. and Mrs. W. S. Mare, Mrs.
S. K. Mare, Mr. Dodge Taylor,
Mr. and Mrs. C. S. Pinkerton, Mr.
and Mrs. M. Reybold, Mr. arid Mrs.
C. D. Kidder.

Mrs. R. B. Gibson entertained
several of her friends on Tuesday
afternoon with a bridge party. At
five o'clock appropriate refresh-
ments were served and the prizes
awarded. Mrs. W. S.'Maire re-
ceived first prize, Miss Josephine
Emery second and Mrs. G. W.
Carpenter, the consolation prize.
Mrs. Gibson's guests included, Mrs.
C. H. Emery, Miss Eugene Emery,
Miss Josephine Emery, Mrs. F. W.
Douglas, Mrs. W. E. Bell, Mrs. W.

treasurer. Mrs. Doze appointed her
committees for the ensuing year
and conducted the meeting in a
most capable manner.
Mrs. W. D. Graham expressed
to the retiring officers the appre-
ciatron of the P. T. A. members
for the splendid work they have
done and presented to Mrs H. H.

Fifty Years of Crime
Recently Clarence Darrow, the
noted criminal lawyer, on being
asked about the crime problem ,n
the United States, said, "During
my half-century of practice, so-
ciety has made no material ad-
vance in treatment of crime and
-the criminal."
This statement is a sad com-
mentary upon our vaunted social
and economic progress, and a se-
vere blow to the activities of
reformers who spend much of
their time devising "cures" for
the disease of crime.
In that half-century of waich
Mr. Darrow speaks, thousands ol
criminal laws have gone on the
statute books. Panaceas have been
offered and many of .them accept-
ed. And yet crime continues and
flourishes. Every new law passed
means more law-breaking.

example, who have been made law.
breakers 'by such ordinances as
those designed to prevent owner-
ship of revolvers and pistols, can-
not be estimated. Yet such laws
are proposed to prevent crime.
But who ever heard of a crinmin-
al's paying any attention to an
anti-gun 'law? An anti-automobile
law would be as sensible on the
theory that if automobiles were
taken away from all law-abiding
citizens, the criminal would there-
by be deprived of their use in his
Mere multiplicity of laws does
not deter the criminal. He will
have his gun and h.s automobile
though the statute' books sag with
enactments forbidding him those
commodities. "Freak" laws make
all laws 'less respected.
We need fewer laws but with
sharper teeth to punish criminals,
if we wish to check crime; not
more law to destroy rights and
privileges of law-abiding citizens.

Awards of the judges to Lake
county included five first, five
second, and two third prizes, as
follows: First best collective
exhibit of winter vegetables,
chemically preserved fruits, com-
mercial canned goods, sugar cane
and syrup, and home canned pro-
ducts. Second-citrus fruits, poul-
try products, dairy products, fruits
other than citrus, and pecans.
Third-ornamentale and flowers,
and sweet and Irish potatoes.
While capturing prizes was not
the main object of the display, the
county making the exhibit as an
educational and advertising enter-
prise, the sum of $440 in cash was
received. In view of the fact that
much of the equipment of the
booth had been previously used at
the South Florida fair, the cost
of the project was materially less-
end, and the prize fund will still
further bring down the expense.

worth of perishables and canned
goods were sold late Saturday
afternoon and night, many boxes
of prize fruit spoken for early in

ern cities by winter visitors. Paul
