In addition to upright spits of meat topped with black olives, (Ranznicl. the .national dish) several kinds of vegetables, fried fish filets and coarse potato chips, there were two small lobsters.

Two alphabets are used, Latin and Cyrillic. English is understood and spoken in Yugoslavian resorts and hotels. Different sections are predominately of Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox or Moslem religion. It was interesting to see how the countryside changed as we drove from the Adriatic coast of Croatia northward into Slovenia. By the time we had climbed to the mountain village above the seaside resort of Opatija the air was sweet with the fragrance of summer" flowers and hay. The atmosphere in Slovenia is typically clear and the sky cloudless. The landscape was gentle with old castles on some of the hilltops. While passing a convoy of Yugoslavian army trucks our driver pointed out that they were used U.S. Army equipment which had been sold to the Yugoslavian government after World Warn. This was a direct road from Austria to beach vacation spots. We met many cars towing expensive small boats on trailers. The caves at tPostojna In Slovenia have been a tourist attraction for 150 years. Some Inscriptions and signatures inside the grotto date from the 13th century. A perpetual temperature ot 46 degrees Fahrenheit makes the caves a refreshing place for summer visitors. Warm mine coats can be rented. An open sightseeing train for much of the distance with-jn the caves makes it easy to view the stalactites, the curtains of Iron calcification and the fantastic rooms hollowed by the underground river. The one and half hour tour costs $1.20 U.S. The only creatures living In' the caves are primitive fish,' blind because of cave life and colorless with a very sensitive skin. Because of their paleness they are called "human fish." The hotel and restaurant at the entrance to Postojna was of the Austrian period and architecture. Rock was being quarried out with American-built tractors to make room in the mountains for a new tourist hotel. While we were having coffee under an umbrella on the sunny verandah of the hotel two men at a nearby table were 1 hi ; UORTEGO f-, Uf,-if f - i'A-l -( H Iff 4 dart 3 Right. with smalt ear '102 u TOM include: oir faro, eklun beach hoios and U-DXIV ADRIATIC RESORT Opatija on ed slopes of Mt.

The State Department of Agriculture describes the sabal as the hardiest of our native palms, reaching heights of 80 feet. Tolerant of a wide variety of soil types, salt spray and brackish water, the cabbage palm well deserves its universal popularity. The leaves are fan-shaped and shiny, deep green in color. In .pioneer days, the sabal furnished food and shelter. which dates back to 1868, features a stately sabal. What might be considered the "official" official state tree Is a thriving sabal palmetto on the south side of the State Capitol in Tallahassee. A marker at the foot is dedicated to the memory of Gov. Dan McCarty, who signed the bill designating the sabal palmetto as Florida State Tree on June 11, 1953.

For more than 150 years tourists have been enjoying these wonders of nature. By HAMPTON DUNN TALLAHASSEE The sa-bal palm, also known as cabbage palm, Is Florida's official State Tree. And the reasons are summed up In romantic language in the 1953 legislative bill which designated the tree: ". . .This tree with Its massive tapering trunk and its crown of dark green leaves that whisper a song of tropic beauty and peace, Is among our most exquisite splendors of nature with which our State Is so abundantly blessed by God and. . .the palm is a symbol of our tropical climate to our frozen neighbors of the north. . .' The selection was not unopposed. There was a strong bid by supporters of the slash pine, a big industry in Florida. And even the palm-lovers were divided, some fought for the royal palm. The Florida Federation of Garden Clubs prevailed with its position that the sabal palm, or palmetto, grows all over the state.
