L. E. union meeting which met here November 7, 8, 9, in conjunction with a convention of their auxiliary order, the G. I. A. Governor John W. Martin, Florida’s chief executive, acted as official welcomer, declaring that never had it been his privilege to address a finer assembly of delegates. Informality Marks Meet Though no formalities centered about the meeting and no business was transacted by the delegates, a blanket endorsement of the “full speed ahead” program layed down by the B. L. E. executive committee was the unanimous concensus of those in attendance. Officials of the Brotherhood who were in attendance declared that the convention had more than ever substantiated the faith which the B. L. E. members had had in their own city of Venice. A Revelation “It was a revelation to them,” President W. B. Prenter stated at the conclusion of the session. “The delegates came    here    and    saw    Venice, their own    city,    and    they are going to be firmer Florida boosters than ever.    We    did    not    have to offer them    anything    for    sale; Florida will sell itself.” Ideal Weather Ideal weather such as is the year round blessing of the Venice section, graced the three day ses- (Continued on Page 4)G.

FAMOUS BAND TO PL A Y IN SPRINGWORLD COURT IS TOPIC COOUDGE’S HOLIDAY ADDRESSCITY FOR FESTIVAL Bohumir Kryl Signs Contract To Bring Famous Symphonic Band Here For Festival To Be Held March 13-20.Nation’s Chief Says U. S. Senate Holds The Reign KANSAS CITY, Nov. 12.—(LN. S.)_The United States has crossed its last “t” and dotted its last “i” insofar as the World Court is concerned. Europe must accept the reservations of the U. S. Senate exactly as written, or abandon all hope of American adherence to the World Court. President Coolidge so declared in his Armistice Day message to the world which he had come 1,400 miles to deliver from the base of Kansas City’s $2,000,000 memorial to America’s World War Dead. America First “America First” was his text. He warmly defended this nation against the profiteering charges which debtor Europe has bandied about. He took cognizance of the possibility of future conflict and re-iterated his endorsement of universal conscription of manpower and money alike in event of national emergency. He elaborated upon the nature and strength of America’s military establishment. Directly challenging Europe on the World Court controversy, the president said:    : “While the nations involved can not yet be said to have made a final determination, and from most of them no answer has been received, many of them have indicated that they are unwilling to concur in the conditions adopted by the resolution of the Senate. “While no final decision can be made by our government until final answers are received, the situation has been sufficiently developed so that I feel warranted in saying that I do not intend to ask (Continued on Page 9) I SEE IN Venice the dawn of a new era of prosperity which will redound to the credit of the city, the state and the nation. —GOVERNOR JOHN W. MARTIN. SIXTY DAYS since I was last in Venice. I feel like Rip Van Winkle must have felt when he came back after twenty years or like Alladin after rubbing the magic lamp, so rapid has been Venice’s development. —CONGRESSMAN HERBERT J. DRANE. 1 7ENIGE IS unique in that it is the only city in Florida backed and developed by V an organization which has 90,000 unpaid Florida boosters throughout the United States.    —HERMAN    A.    DANN. There is something about band music which exhilarates the most jaded spirit and forces the most prejudiced to acknowledged appreciation. Residents of Venice have neither been accused of having jaded spirits nor of being prejudiced, but knowing rather the universal appeal which band music presents, the Venice Company announced yesterday that a contract had been signed with Bohumir Kryl to bring his world famous symphonic band here for the Venice Spring Festival, March 13-20. ’ The festival, which is sponsored by the Venice Company, is expected to attract nation wide attention. Not only does Kryl head one of the finest bands in the world and easily ranked with the best directors now living ,but he has been acclaimed without a peer as a cornet soloist. With his symphonic band as a background for the spring carnival, numerous other entertainment functions will be planned by the Venice officials who expect to make the festive week an outstanding event in the South, perhaps to be continued from year to year. No Stranger Kryl will be no stranger in Venice. Unheralded and unsung he visited this city a short while ago in company with E. W. Shank, district manager of the Daytona Beach office of the Venice Company and Miss Jessie Gearhart, also of the Daytona Beach office. Kryl now counts himself as one of Venice’s foremost boosters.
