That the world shall know of the way through which the Old Spanish Trail wends its way is the determination of the board of directors of the Old Spanish Trail As sociation in the campaign to be en tered into at once to not only build a great national east and west high way from New Orleans to the Atlan tic ocean and eventually from ocean to ocean, but to make that highway the best advertised and the most pop ' ular motorist and tourist pathway in the United States. - From New Orleans through Logs town, Ocean Springs, Biloxi, Gulf port and Pascagoula to Mobile; from ; Mobile through ' Fairhope, Bay Mi- Dear Santa Claus: I will now take the pleasure of writing to you and let you know what I want for Chrisfc , mas.

Here it is planned that the crown of flowers shall be placed in this favored land. A campaign of publicity that wilj outrival that given any other national highway is planned, one that will inspire the children of the Golden Gulf Coast to become 'the arbiters of the gulf wastfuturff, of the futara beauty and usefulness of the Old Spanish Trail as an asset of a favored land. Perhaps, figures' the board of directors, by dedicating this great national highway to the children and the future of the gulf coast, there wfll be created the spirit that will not only complete this national roadway in record time, but that will enable its promoters to see that the world lends an ear to this achievement of the Gulf Coast people. - In connection with this campaign of dedication to the children of the Gulf Coast, northern newspapers and mag azines are to tell the great outside of that which is being opened to it as the gateway to the yet undiscov ered delights of the coast. It is but one of the plans of promotion to be made a feature in bringing about the building of the Old Spanish Trail. The field secretary in bis campaign of local organization for the coast will carry the message of flowers to the children of the Gulf Coast m order that they have a part in the building of this great national high way.
