From tho poorest republic lu thu
world to tho richest Is what tourists
Havel did for Switzerland. That lltllu
republic practically unknown a century
igo Is now recognized thu world over
is a playground for tourists becaus
its scenic beauties were capitalized.
Datu showing whut tho tourist busi

jrepured by Alfred A. Aya representing

oer of ConimercK to be used In connec-
Innwlth Its stiite-wlde expansion cam
paign now in progress.
It hus a direct bearing ou the cam
paign by reuson of thu fact that ono of
he chief arguments being used by the
Statu Chamber Is that cities ure spend
ing huge sums to udvertlsu their In
terests along civic Industrial lines.
In tho arllclu prepared by Mr, Aya

ruvo! he suys
"It is estimated that tourists an

.HiiccifeM artists are Hooding the
world wlili nvily-mnilp recipes for how
to win They forget- that you can't
put lklim where there Ih no Inclina
tion to vision. And where there Is
no vision failure Is bound to result.
Thut'H why It Is that o inniiy people
never get beyond tho point of work
In for the other inun. They art) Just
slaves of toduy. They fear responsi
bility. Loads thnt bring Joy to the
heart of thu real man crush them.
Hut where men see the possibilities
there In un limit to what they may
accomplish. At- bottom a man must
have In him something of the soul that
appeals und feel the self-mastery that
urges him to attempt what others have
failed In. It may seem a common
thing, but It's one of the ussets of success.

"After I have subscribed to the Ore

of control by any one section,
To sum up: Tho State Chamber will

through a Hoard of Directors eluctt-d
by delegates and officers, Including an
executive seen tary elected by thu
Hoard. Voting will be done by consti
