(AWC.y U>raiM KIWI TUESDAY, MARCH 30, Florida Vacationers Plentiful But Money Scarcer This Year MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) By SAM DAWSON Some of the whoopee has gone out of the Sand Spit o The crowds are still here, but they're watching their pennies. And a banker says that over on the mainland, all along the coast, there's a building boom — in churches and religious schools or recreation buildings. Touriste are crowding the race 4 track*, it's true, in greater num- ' b«rc than this time last year (alter a poor start earlier in the season). The $2 windows are doing the land-office business. Night clubs are moaning. One is closing down now, ahead of schedule, because people don't stay up late making whoopee like they did lest year. Taxi drivers say people are here all right, but they're staying home. N Hotels and merchants had a bad lull around the turn of the year because tourists were slow arriving. Then the North poured stream of sun seekers here—bu they left at home any free-spenc ing notions they might have had Tips.are modest. To pay top entertainer fees, nigh clubs must have houses filled with revellers willing to spend, an over long hours. Many complain that this year most folk seem t go to bed after the early show, if they come out at all. A Florida-born banker, Leonard A. Usina, president of the People National Bank in Miami, says there's-been a striking return to religion along the pleasure coast Maybe the world war and the Ko rean fighting helped. Maybe the A-bomb and H-bomb put fear into a lot of folk. People are going to church more and building more churches. Usina finds the trend running through many faiths. Banks in this area are doing considerable financing of religious structures. Usina thintor the return to religion is "building a solid foundation for the future" along the Florida coast Tourists, however, continue to flock to the horse and dog tracks. Their attendance and betting totals make a good fever chart of how the tourist trade is running. And it's important to the state government too. Florida has no Income tax, but the State Treasury takes a 6 per cent cut of pari- mutuel bets. Tropical Park's 42-day season, .starting 1 , in November, showed attendance of 35,383 from last year and betting down more than two million dollars. Miami, with half- empty hotels, decided the depression was on. But Hialeah's 40 days, early this year, showed attendance up five per cent and betting up 8 per cent over last year for a total of 67 million dollars. Miami decided the recession was over. Big Betters Gone Now Gulfstream's season is underway. The first 15 days show attendance up seven per cent but betting up only four per cent over last year. Miami figures the tourists are lingering, but the big betters are gone. Also, the plushiest stakes at Gulfstream have . now been run, and Miami expects the big stables : will be treking north and the rac- j ing season taper off. Merchants say tourists are buying less expensive souvenirs than in some recent years. They eat in cafeterias and not so much in hotel dining rooms. They place smaller EASTER-SEAL TRAVELER—One of the most-traveled little girls in the U, S is Karen AJbrecht, of San Antonio, Tex., the 1954 Easter-Seal Child. She is shown in Chicago, 111., with her dog. Freckles, and airline hostess Rosemary Meyers, where she urged everyone to join the National Society for Crippled Children and Adults' Easter-Seal Appeal. On March 30, Karen will be entertained at the White House by President and Mrs. Eisenhower. Karen was born with a condition that made it impossible for her to walk. Today she is walking with braces and crutches made available by Easter-Seal funds. Jordan Presses For UN Action Against Israeli Latest Arab-Jewish Incident Resulted In 9 Killed, 16 Hurt Insurance Men Meet With Company Head Eight Blytheville insurance men were in Memphis today for a confer- nce with Frederic W. Ecker, president of Metropolitan Life Insurance sO., who is visiting the company's erritories. The eight, representatives of the ompany's office here, are Lynn W. Brown, manager, and W. Paul Maion. J. G. Trieschmann, Edward Evans. J. G- Paul, Fred T. Ratclift i. H. Joyce and R. E. Hodge. bets on the nags. They watch tele- whoopee. ision in their hotel rooms, rather lan spending time and money at e night clubs. And the year-round loridians tend to stay home nights nore than they used. Maybe it's a shift in American abits, a trend back to home life nd religion. Or maybe it's just ecause free and easy money isn't owing as it once did, while the costs of .maintaining a high standard of living, rich in gadgetry, seem to go right on mounting. Or maybe folk are a little worried and don't feel like making Gene Tierney Denies Being Wed To Aly Khan HOLLYWOOD C.4>» — Gene Tierney's studio says she -is returning today to a Mexican beach resort where she held a weekend meeting with Moslem Prince Aly Khan. But the actress said before she left that they aren't married. "We are not contemplating marriage at this time,'.' she said by phone from a film location near Mojave. Calif. "Prince Aly's trip was merely one of friendship." The prince and the actress reached the resort, Rosarito Beach, between Tijuana and Ensenada, by devious routg$,:..Aly came from Paris, via MontreaJ^airti Mexico City. Miss Tierney and Tier . mother flew from Hollywood to Mexico City Friday, a 20th Century-Fox spokesman said. Miss Tierney returned to Mojave yesterday, to resume work in "The Egyptian,*,* tat n ish t she said she was headed for Mexico again. I JERUSALEM Ifl — Jordan pressed for TJ. N. action today on the latest bloody Arab-Jewish Incident in which it charges Israeli forces killed nine persons and wounded 16 in the Jordanian border village of Natalin. Israel viewed the attack as a "local reaction" to a previous border killing by Arabs. The Jordan government demanded an emergency meeting today of the U. N.-sponsored Mixed Armistice Commission to probe the one- hour raid Sunday midnight on the village of 500 two miles east of the Jordan-Israeli demarcation line in ,he Judean Hills near Bethlehem. U. N. sources said the armistice commission would investigate the ncident, which heightened the rowing tension between the Jewish state and her Arab neighbors- till technically at war under a shaky truce since 1948. It still was not known, however, whether Israel would show up for he commission meeting. The Israelis have been boycotting the armistice group since it failed to uphold their charge that Jordan was responsible for the March 17 ambush of a Jewish bus on the Neeb Desert in which 11 persons were slain. The Israeli government did not mention the bus incident specifically in its first reaction to the a t e s t killing. Prime Minister VIoshe Sharett, refraining from enying that Israeli citizens might lave carried out the raid, said,, the ttack "looks like a reaction to he Kissalon incident." He referred to the slaying over the weekend of a 50-year-old Jewsh night watchman at the little sraeli village of Kissalon, not far rom Natalin across the border, srael has charged Arabs from ordan did the killing. "This does not alter the fact/' aid Sharett, "that we deplore any ct of violence. But we also main- am the basic responsibility is with | that side (the Arabs) which again and again starts this constant chain of outrages." He Was Right PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (£)—Wesley Orr, 35, of West Portsmouth told his son. "This is going to hurt me more than it will you." He began paddling the boy. Shortly afterward, the father was taken to general hospital for treatment on a dislocated shoulder.
