Fathers will go on to tell you
that tjie year around climr ■
here cannot b$ excelled, with av
erage days in January of 70.5*
degrees, and average nights in
July of 76 degrees. The fact that
temperatures in this locality drop
ped to dangerously near freezing
several nights last week, and that
woolen shirts and overcoats were
quite in vogue in no wise changes
the claim of the average. SaTaso
tan that the year-around climate
here simply cannot be beat. And
we are hopefully inclined to a
gree, now that the sun has been
shining for a full day, following
three days of dense cloudiness
and chilly breezes.

Sarasota’s summer population
of 30.000, approximately doubles
during the winter tourist season.
Though there are numerous Ho
tels, Motels, and Tour Is! Homes
available, large Trailer Camps in
and around the city take care of
about 12,000 people annually, And
this Trailer Life seems to he ap
pealing to more and more people
all the time. From 20 business
firms that were engaged in ser
vicing Trailers in the spring of
1955, the number had jumped to
33 by November. And there is
said to be a constant tum-iver
and trade-in business in TrulFi-s
the same as in cars. \

It seems to be so mournful :
With T. V. in my home. .
I heard it whisper softly,

“Please give me one more chance
To talk and- sing and play.”
I guess the other radios
Feel the same as mine—
! So out of place and lonely
j And so very far behind.
I I hope their day will come again
When they can sing and play
But I’m sure I’d miss the TV set.
Do you think they’re here to stay?

Wo are bound to say that Sar
asota is the cleanest town in ap
pearance that we have found in
any of bur travels. Though very
few “Help Keep Our Town Clean”
signs are in evidence, both the
resident and tourist populations
seem to take great pride in keep
ing private and public premises
as clean and tidy as possible.

tidiness and cleanliness speak
much in praise of muncipalities as

Among the funny signs L have
read in this locality two come to
mind at this time. One near the
enterance of an out-of-town am
usement park read: “Ride First

other on a window in a downtown
business block announced: “We
Kill To Live.” Further investiga
tion revealed that this place en»
gaged jn pest and bug control.
