Port Arthur News (Newspaper) - June 23, 1929, Port Arthur, Texas VOL. XXVlir. NO. 174, :PORT ARTHUR; TEXAS, SUNDAY.: JUNE 1929. -PRICE FIVE CENTS DRY 'STOOL PIGEON' SOUGHT IN KILLING ARTHUR Six Men Arrested In, Liquor this American Automobllo asao- 1 elation, principal national organ- ization kind, for months past has been In preparation at tourist aids anticipation of Acc ord breaking tourist travel season. THAT tourist trvel Is now under- ;1 way. Principal bureau of the American Automobile association, with which Ihe Port Arthur Automobile club Is affiliated, !s the National Tour- Ing bureau, whose survey forecasts a tourist movement this year of automobiles. MAPS, route logs, tourist Infor matioii, descriptive literature- distribution of these constitute a 'comprehensive activity by the bu- reau and at some time or another on his travels, every tourist this year will come in contact with the A.

These are being published in thousands of newspapers over the country, in magazines, recreation publications and in other publica- tions dealing with the affairs of motordom. The aggregate circulation .these publications Is well over tt stupendous total. YET thai map, which will be rec ognlzed as authority by millions of tourists this year bears no men lion of Port Arthur. PORT ARTHUIt is out of thi tourist picture. Not because we do not hav< something the tourist would like ti have. Not because the map was pre pared when Port Arthur waa a vil logo and by virtue of ita size ai had its Identity lost In com mon with thousands of other vil tho map "waa prepared thin year. reason Port Arthur is n6t.-oii 1 the map IB because Port Arthu la without a highway recognized as a direct arterial route.1 Tho reason its highway is no recognized Is because It has been formally designated as a lat era! ot the Old Spanish Trail. rTHE reason H has not been form 1 ally designated as a. lateral the Old Spanish Trail, though trai authorities by courtesy have ceptcd it ns a continuation, Is be cause it id not a modern route. It Is handicapped by a ferr; when it should have a bridge. AND so Port Arthur Is left off th A. A. A, map being publishe this tourist season by thousands o newspapers, and is losing an untol sum in publicity because of it. It is losing an nnsetlmntcd sur In tourist patronage.
