MONDAY, JUNE 26, 1939 As You Play Thousands Toil In Five Dollar 'Industry' BV PAUI, ROSS NEA Service Staff Correspondent NEW YORK, June 20.—If "you walke^l up to Joe Doaks'& family ?s they sat in their Jaloppy in some tourist camp and (old them that they were part of an industry which— 1. Does an • estimated $5 500,000,000 (five billion dollars) worth of business a year or ' more; '2. Has approximately 40000,800 customers; ,~, 3. Probably shows more vc>l- P ume .than any other Industry except steel or automobiles- i. Creates thousands upon thousands of jobs and livelihoods; 5. is the most "democratic" of industries because no big single units dominate it; 6. Has never been properly studied, analyzed or charted by anyone, including (hose in —well, Joe Doaks & family might say you were daffy with the heat and ought to lake n vacation, as they were doing. Bip FACTOR IN BUSINESS Yet that is the situation with the travel and vacation industry Joe Doaks, by. the million, thinks of U as two-weeks-off-with-pay, hot dogs, five gallons of gas, seeing Valley Forge, swimming in the lake and getting a painful sunburn. In reality it is a gigantic economic force,which, like other American phenomena, "Just grew" 'pj-'tthout direction or guidance, nnd which might be used as a powerful factor for recovery. American travel is not confined to ocean voyages, These constitute only a minor part of the industry. Approximately 85 per cent of all American travel is done in automobiles and is confined lo areas which can I>c visited in automobiles. , . The American Automobile Association has estimated that mo ; TheWacallon Iiicliistry-Goiiip'Ful] Tilt •-;"-'- . :—,-- -. ' O . (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS torlng Americans spent $4,500,000,000 in 1937, at an average dnily expenditure of $7 per person. THOUSANDS GAIN LIVELIHOODS i What this means economically was indicated by an official of the American Ex press, pp., who estimated that every' time a vacation- ist spends.$5 he indirectly gives one day's Vo'rk; person.- ''. A New York publisher of travel magazines believes that vacation- ists, create 250,000 jobs in the single, field of travel agencies, railroad * arid: ship ^passenger departments and tourist services. Southern California travel experts say that 150,000. in that area gain their sole livelihood from tourists. - Tourism is the only Industry of Bermuda, the biggest industry of New England and Canada. . .It provides Florida with more money than the citrus crop, brought (in 1937) nearly 9 times the native population to New Mexico, left (hi 1937) over $800,- Clipper Reaches Destination Allanllc Hopping Rcporl- ei; Tells Of What Ho • Manned to Do.

Federal authorities have estimated thai tourists alone consumed approximately 25 per cent of the aluminum, iron nnd steel, copper, petroleum, zinc, lumber, plate glass, tin, rubber, leather, lead, nickel cotton, mohair, labor and insurance which the automobile manufacturing industry used up in The major part of the tourist ^dollar received is immediately 'spent ^locally for labor, supplies, taxes, rent and services. It is impossible lo calculate the total good which the blood-stream of tourist money performs in the body of American economy. One can only say that millions, many of whom never realize It, are benefited GOVERNMENT GUIDING THE TRAVEL TRADE Yet until recent years America did virtually nothing to encourage ' and .expand this great industry. While European nations set up government bodies to draw in American travelers, a few American stales promoted themselves and their attractions, travel firms as individuals pushed the business. Today, all that is changed. The Federal government recently set •ip a United States Travel Bureau Mth offices in Washington, New r ork and San Francisco, to encourage and guide the travel Industry. Thirty American states now provide money and bureaus to push travel In their areas. With two Fairs going simultaneously in the United States, 1939 promises to be the biggest travel year yet. Some travel authorities believe as much as $1,000,000,000 In new business may accrue.

Then, and on many other occa sioiis, state policemen on motorcycles had cleared the streets foi pr. Smith's automobile nnd escorlcx him with ceremony. Today some o the same policemen were out in tin swamps looking' for him. Dr. smith had been president o little Southwestern Louisiana college before Long called him to L S fr for Dong's purposes at the university, which was his chief hobby Dr. Smith was an ideal administrator He greeted with a tolerant smile most of Long's interference and Ihe school prospered, it was rich in lands ceded by the state and on which oil was discovered Long recruited football plavers, hired "ringers" for the university's 200-piece band which he occasionally led m parades as drum major and chartered special trains lo lake the whole student Body en trips The heirs to Long's political machine after his assassination were almost as charitable toward the school. New pink buildings arose on the campus-at-a cost of millions of, dollars. The student enrollment reached 8,000. Dr. Smith had a magnificent residence, an expensive car and chauffeur.
