Stevenson, speaking recently in New York, called attention to the fact that the freedom of the in dividual in this country is the key to progress in these troubled times. Expressing his belief that the United States would continue to lead the way to a better life for its people, the defeated Democratic candidate of 1952 •aid: "But reason will not triumph unless the mind is free. The struggle of our times is a struggle to preserve in tegrity and creativity of the free mind. It has many ene mies. The most menacing of these foes have been the annihalistic political system, like facism, nazism and communism—the secular fanaticsms of our time.” The theme expressed by Stevenson is one which Americans must hold dear to their hearts if intellectual achievements are to bring continuing progress in the various fields. Our citizens must be able to speak free ly, read freely, organize freely, so long as this activity does not violate the Constitution. Throughout the history of man, the rate of progress achieved by various races is in direct proportion to the amount of individual liberty and freedom existing among them. As long as the average American is free to read what he pleases, listen to whom he pleases, travel freely, speak his mind and enjoy access to all sources of enter tainment, news and propaganda he desires, communism will make no significant gain in the United States. AIR COACH TRAVEL UP Airline officials say prospects for 1954 travel vol is continuing to increase rapidly and that the lower fares of air coach travel are fast making that mode of travel acceptable to the masses. Air coach fares average about thirty per cent cheaper than standard air fares. There is little difference in the so-called coach trav el and first-class travel on the major airlines. With coach travel tickets, one is not furnished meals and other frills of the trip provided standard fare travelers. On the other hand, schedules are often just as good and air craft are usually comparable on both runs. . Air line officials say prospects for 1954 travel vol ume are good and that a hundred per cent growth in volume is expected by 1950. Most of this increase is expected to be in the air-coach bracket. Willis B. Lips comb, traffic and sales vice-president of Pan-American Airways, predicts that by 1960 tourist fare passengers will comprise three-fourths of the volume of air travel across the Atlantic. Other lines expect to increase their percentage of air-coach travel by similiar percentages. We wonder where the isolationist sentiment of the thirties has gone. Crossword Puzzle ACROSS 1.

Personal pronotm Visit To Spain Judge Lopez Tells Of His Summer In Europe Iditer's Nets: Judge Aquiline Lopez, Jr., of Circuit Court, and his wife, Lillian, visited Eurepe last summer. Meny ef the judge's out-of-town friends hove enjoyed reeding a letter describing his trip. The Citizen is printing en In stallment of the letter daily dur ing the week. This is the fifth installment. On Friday morning, wo went for a tour of Barcelona visiting the Town Hall, the Provincial Council Chamber, the Gothic Quarter, the Cathedral, the Spanish village, the Church of the Holy Trinity and then saw the most important parks in the City. Barcelona is a very cosmopolitan city and it is per haps the most important commer cial - industrial city in Spain and it is very modern. The streets are very wide and the center of the town seems to be very well kept. Many of the buildings are very modern but one finds from time to time an old church or home in be tween which make it picturesque. On Friday night, we left Bar celona for Madrid by sleeper and arrived In Madrid at 10:00 a. m. on Saturday morning where we went to visit my father and moth er who had arrived from Key West the day previous. We then went to the Hotel Emperador where we stayed. We remained in Madrid on Saturday and Sunday and also Monday visiting throughout the Ci ty. Madrid has become a tourist cen ter of major importance in Europe as the city has an irrestible ap peal to the visitor. At the present time, it is well equipped with ho tels to suit all and possesses a mong other things the privilege of living for weeks throughout the year under blue sky. It is a city with fine avenues and houses and an old quarter of great charm. Madrid has many museums of great interest Including El Prado museum, considered one of the outstanding museums of the world. Madrid is the most representative city in Spain for its inhabitants come from all parts of the coun try. Within an hour’s drive from the center of Madrid, more or less, you can reach Aranjuez with its eighteenth century palace and love ly gardens, Toledo, a city of un limited interest for the lover of art, history and romance, and El Eteorial, the Eighth Wonder of the World, with its famous monastery. Also, in less than two hours, you can reach .Avila or Segovia by road or by electric train. These two cities are full of interest as is the scenery along the road. Tour Begins Tuesday morning the 23rd, we left on a tour which was to last eight days. We left Madrid early in the morning and went through; the most important parts of the city end also through the oldest district of the city. We arrived! about two hours later at Arinjuer which was founded by Phillip n. The palace contains incalculable; treasures in pictures and other works of art and has wonderful gardens. Up until 1722 Arinjuer was reser-! ved as a residence for members of the roya) family but afterwards a town was planned which resulted in the present Aranjuez. The coun try is very fertile and the straw berries grown in this section are very famous. From there we tra-j vailed North passing thousands of acres of wheat fields which can be bean all through this section. The; climate is very hot and, as a mat-| ter of fact, the temperature was probably 100. We arrived at approximately; 1:30 at Manzanares at a tourist motel operated by the tourist com-j mission and had lunch here. From! there we travelled to Cordoba \ where we arrived in the afternooh after passing through many old towns which were built several centuries back. Cordoba is a favorite stopping place for foreigners visiting Spain. It has been very important in Span ish history and reached its great est renown during the Arab dom ination, when it was a Caliphate during the most splendid period of : that rule. In the Jewish quarter which has the charm of the past in its streets and patios, we saw a welf preserved Arab gateway which existed in the walls which surrounded the City giving access to this quarter. We also visited the synagogue, the remains of ao ancient Hebrew Church of great historical interest. Mosque of Cordoba Cordoba is better known on ac count of its ancient Mosque, now a Cathedral, which was built in the year 785. When the city was con quered by King Ferdinand in 1236, he consecrated the Mosque as the Cathedral and from then on, it was used for Catholic worship. Thus the labor of several centuries has made this Cathedral an extraordi nary building in which pure Ara bian, Greco-Roman, Ogival and Renaissance styles co-exist. The Arabian portion is the most re markable. The true Mosque which consists of nineteen naves transversed by twenty-one narrower naves upheld by more than one thousand pillars and everyone of the capitals of these pillars is different. Near one of the doorr is the Belfry Tower constructed pn the site of the Old Mineret built in 1593, and the Ca thedral sacristy has among other treasures a golden chalice by Ben venuto Cellini and many silver crosses and treasures. From the Mosque, we went to see a Roman bridge over the Gua dalquevir River. In different parts of the city, we saw museums and many old buildings. Cordoba had many fascinating corners which are very interesting to see and nar row streets which are very pic turesque. After lunch, we left for ! Seville, arriving there late in the 1 afternoon. ( In Seville, we went to the Ca thedral built on the site of the for :mer Mosque. It is one of the most beautiful and famous churches in Chistendom, in the Gothic style, Arabic and Plateresque. There we saw the royal chapel and the Ca-i thedral treasury which contains many rich ornaments, vestments, 'all kinds of jewels, gold .and pre vious stones. Throughout the sac-j red edifice, we could admire pic-i tures of Murillo, El Greco. Goya, Zurbaran and many others. We 'then visited the celebrated Giraldo Tower, the finest work of art left Ibehind by the Arabs. It was the ’Mineret of the old Mosque in thej 12th century. Tha Alcazar | From the Cathedral, we visited' through *the Alcazar erected on the site of the former Sultan’s resi dence. Its construction was direct-! ed by Moorish architects snd lar-s gely reproduces. the charm of the Alhambra and in the halls | gardens is the genius of harmony. The second floor of the Alcazar was used by the royal family for many years as a residence when they visited Seville and at the pre sent time Franco also lives there with his family when he goes to Seville. The gardens are beautiful and original in their layout. During the afternoon, we visited the beautiful park of Maria Luisa I with the stands of the Bero-Ameri can exhibition including palaces and pavilions, walks and pools with a great variety of trees and flow ers. We, also saw many monuments and then we went to see the Church of the Virgin of Macarena. This Virgin is venerated, loved and admired by the Sevillanos and es pecially by the gypsies. We left Sevilla Friday, June 26th in the morning for Algeciras. We had lunch at Jerez, one of the most I beautiful of the Andalusian towns with its wide streets shaded by or ange trees and psalms, its houses whose low railings are adorned with flowers in pots and its nar row winding lanes which still show traces of the Moorish past. A large number of the Andalusian nobility live here and it has a typical Spanish atmosphere. The world fame of Jerez is not due to this, ■it is due to its wines. We visited the Gonzales Byass winery where we were shown throughout the plant. After lunch, we left for Algeci ! ros passing through Cadiz. Just be jfore we arrived at Algeciros, we passed thfough the town of Tari* fa from where one can see the African coast right across the Med iterranean. The waters of the Med iterranean were beautiful. From the hotel in Algeciros, we were able to see the Rock of Gibraltar. Tour of Giibraltar Saturday morning, Lillian, Curry and I went by taxi for a morning tour of Giibraltar. We say the Rock went into some of the tunnels and visited the different quarters of the [City of Gibraltar. The night be fore at Algeciros, I had met an officer who was stationed in Key West during the war and who liv ed near my home. He invited us to visit him on his ship which was an oil tanker refueling some of the American ships in the harbor. When we arrived at the Navy base, ,we found that the ship was just pulling out of the dock and was to anchor in the bay. We left Algeciros that afternoon for Malaga travelling along the! Mediterranean. We were very im- 1 pressed by the different trees that’ grow along the Mediterranean and also by the seacoast. We found that [there are many tropical trees, flowers, plants, etc. all along the Mediterranean and were also able to see thousands upon thousands of cork trees. All through South-, jern Malaga, we could see millions and millions of olive trees but around Malaga, there is little dif ference. Around Malaga which is famous for its wines, grapes and-figs, are! also many tropical plants. Asa 1 matter of fact, it is said that to- i bacco grows quite well around this! section. The port of Malaga is one, of the most interesting on the Med iterranean coasts and ships of all nations can be see there. ; Malaga was founded by the Pho enicians, later became a Roman City and then an Arabian city un til in 1487 when it was taken by the Spanish Kingdom. Sunday mor ning. we visited the cathedral which was begun in 1582 and which contained precious works of! .art such as choir stalls, chapeis and many pictures by many artists. We also visited the Alcazaba which was an Arabian fortress. This fort ress contained one hundred and A MAN IN THE HOUSE Bu Florence Stuart J as ■ Chapter S JANE said, when she had fln- J ished her little story: “Aunt Mae says it’s all over town about Carl being seen in Washington with that girL Bad you heard about it. Teas?- ‘ 1 had heard it," Teas said. She sat on the studio oouch. one slacked leg tucked under her. Scowling thoughtfully, she lit a cigarette. "I didn't tell you be cause 1 didn't consider it worth telling. I can think up a dozen good and perfectly innocent rea sons why he might have been having dinner with one of his students.’* . “So can L" Jane agreed. “Still. I can think up a couple that wouldn’t be so innocent, too." “Oh, sure, if you want to go In for an orgy of tormenting your self- I think your Aunt Mae had a lot of nerve, peddling the story to you. What’s she doing, trying to make trouble?" “I don’t think so. She felt that I ought to know—for my own good and self-protection." I‘esa made a wry grimace. "Heaven deliver me from people who come bearing gossip for my own good. Excuse me for saying it, honey, but I think it would have been much kinder if your Aunt Mae had kept her trap ■hut And if that sounds harsh —well, why shouldn’t I have some fairly nigged ideas on the subject of gossip? Fm the little expert on the harm it can do. If it hadn’t been for all the careless talk that ran like wildfire around this town, I figure Barney and I would still be living together." Jane saw the tears before Tess managed to squeeze them back. “Hold on to your man if you love him," Tess said unsteadily. “Don’t let a lot of long-tongued med dling matties rip things apart for you.' FINNEGAN’S IN DENVER UP)—Police cruising in a Denver residential area saw James Finnegan, 46, rummaging through the trunk of a car. He had a pair of rubber boots and some overshoes in his hand. Police checked ownership of the car. If belonged to a fellow pa trolman. Finnegan is in jail. ten towers and three rings of ram parts, beautiful gardens and baths. Today there are only just a few remains of these. Through The Mountains We left Malaga right after lunch and travelled to Granada along many mountains. Asa matter of fact, at one of the places the al titude is 3500 feet where we get a magnificent view looking towards the Mediterranean. We also pass ed the village of Santa Fe through a handsome gateway where we found ourselves in what used to be the royal encampment of Ferdi nand and Isabel during the selge of Granada. Here Christopher Col umbus came to tell the King and Queen of his plans for discovering a shorter route to the Indies which led to the discovery of America. We arrived at Granada late that afternoon. On Monday morning we started on a tour of the famous Alhambra. The portico is a huge Arabian archway with a handcarv ing above it symbolizing the doc trine of Mahomet. Having crossed the barbican (a low stone wall) we went along a narrow lane to an esplanade where stands the Place of Charles V. Despite its sumptuousness and architectural merit, this palace is rather an anachronism in these surroundings. We went through a severely simple gateway entering the Moorish Palace by the way of the Patio de la Alberca. This Pa tio has a marbled tile floor and in the center a pool hedged with ros es. Entering through the front wing one reaches the famous Court of the Lions. The fountain in the cen ter shows that non-Moorish artists helped in its construction, since the Arabs never used statuary. Architecture The architecture is elegant and distinguished and the peristicles and arcades of stone filligree sup \ ported by slender white marble columns are admirable. We then visited some of the halls which were very interesting. We also saw a Moorish archway which marks; the entrance to the Hall of the! Ambassadors which still bss vesti ges of its old magnificence Archi tect. It is formed by two patios put together and converted into rooms for the gardeners who used to look after this ancient royal re sidence. The first patio is reached by a horseshoe archway and is joined to the second by a gallery of five arches. In front, it has a flight of steps snd an artistic nam ied doorway. The cloister of the Generelife resembles that of the Alhambra. It is lovely despite its mutilations and the plastering of some parts. The Generelife contains many other patios and halls of such ex quisite beauty that we felt we felt we were living in some won derful story of the “Thousand and One Nights." Lillian and I visited the Royal Chapel dating from 1505 in wich we saw the splendid tomb of Ferdinand and Isabel and their successors, Phillip and Juans. There we also saw the scepter, dia dem and sword by which they gov • erned and extended their kingdom. (Concluded Tomonow). “I know “ Jane said. “And I do trust Carl Only—" “Only what?" “Well" Jane said, “if his being with that girl in Washington was perfectly innocent, just a casual accidental meeting, why didn't he mention it to me?” Teas shrugged. “Maybe he for got" “Oh, no, he didn’t forget When he came home, he told me a dozen little details about his trip. But he never mentioned having had dinner with Helen Talbot!" “And,” Jane added, “professors do get infatuated with their students. Look, Tess, there’s something else 1 want to ask you. And mind. I want the truth, not a few tactful evasions. You’ve known me for years. Do you think I’ve changed since I’ve been married?" “Changed?" “It’s hard to explain what 1 mean," Jane laughed, “since I scarcely know myself. Pardon me for quoting Aunt Mae again—" “Honestly, honey, Fm beginning to think you have an Aunt Mae complex. She pokes ideas at you. and you stop them up like a sponge." “Yes. I suppose Ida I try not to, but— Well, anyway, she as much as said I was turning into a drudge." JANE grinned ruefully. "Hie way to hold one’s husband's in terest, according to Aunt Mae, is to become interested in a thou sand and one things that haven’t anything to do with your hut band.” “If you ask me," Tess snapped, “Aunt Mae is full of little red ants. Why do you listen to her, honey? When she starts on me of her tirades, why don’t you just close your ears and think about something else?" “Well" Jane reasoned, “now and again Aunt Mae comes up with something that makes sense.

Sr. Editor, The Citizen Tribute is paid to the loving memory and high esteem in which Mr. L. P. Artman, Sr., will always be held by the many residents of our community. The words, “To know him was to love him” may not frequently be expressed about men who by their pro fession or trade constantly serve a demanding public. However, I find myself saying this about the late Mr. Artman. There never was an occasion ''that I called at the Key West Citizen for a fraternal or philanthropic purpose that the Editor Mr. L. P. Artman did not grant the approval sought. It was an inspiration to talk with him because like the late Will Rogers, one’s contact with Mr. Artman enriched that person’s life because of thi various lessons of life which he would re-count fbr you. This tribute, I know, is shared with ma by many. Two wonderful examples of the esteem in which' Mr. Artman was endeared by his public were brought to light when at his funeral, not one, but two outstanding women leaders came to me after Mr. Artman’s funeral and both said (Almost to the letter but at different times), “I have been very ill with a virus but I simply had to get out of bed to attend Mr. Artman’s funeral. Mr. Artman was always cooperative when I visited The Key West Citizen in search of publicity 4o r our organization, and, I had to pay the tribute to him which he ao richly deserved and he earned on earth.” May these thoughts which we share help lighten the anguish of his family over the loss of one who has gone before us “to prepare a home for us”.
