E. H. Garrison, Jr.,
Southern Pines, A. I. Creamer, of the
Highland Pines Inn, told the members
that the Sandhills country has the
world by the heels if we go after it.
Mr. Creamer said that once food,
clothes and shelter were the chief
wants of men, and that the hotels
were called on to supply those needs.
Now visitors to hotels want something
more, and in the Sandhills food, music
and a perfect bed are among the re
quirements, while on the side are
many other things that the visitors
expect, and which the hotel men are
providing for them. In this respect
the Sandhill hotel men are doing good
work, but Mr. Creamer thinks we need
