VACATIONS IDEAL
AT BLUE RIDGE
Offer the Best in Rest, Recrea
tion and Inspiration; 50,000
Guests in 16 Summers.
Fifty thousand people have been
guests at Blue Ridge in the sixteen
summers it has been open. It was
originally planned for conferences of
college men and women, who met
there under the auspices of the stu
dent Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A.
But these boys and girls told their
parents and these began coming to
this wonderful spot in the mountains.
In order to meet the needs of these
mature people who came for rest and
inspiration, seventy rooms with pri
vate bath were added, and these are
now taxed to capacity most of the
summer by those who find here an
ideal fellowship in the midst of the
glories of the rugged mountains and
the quiet of the woods and streams.
Our next step was to add a boys
camp where parents who had boys
might feel that they had the advan
tage of the finest leadership, the best
food, and the most stimulating, surroundings.
- Then Asheville Hall was built
where college students who wanted
might live and study in the Y. M. C.
A. Graduate School summer quarter.
Fifty colleges are represented in our
student body each summer.
So, the whole family, Mother, Dad,
college boys and girls and younger
boys, is provided for. There is also
a wonderful playground and kinder
garten for little children.
Everybody plays at Blue Ridge,
whether they be three or ninety. For
those who are robust there is swim
ming, boating, mountain climbing,
tennis, golf, horse back riding, volley
hall, baseball, basketball and for
those who like less strenuous exer
cise, there are wonderful shady paths
on the lake, auto trips, etc.
Blue Ridge is open from June 4th to
September 1st. The, conferences do
not fill all the space, so that any col
lege man may invite his . parents to
be there during the conference period
or later.
For the first time this summer
there will be a special dining room
where meals will be served for longer
hours, so that people who are resting
may sleep 4ater, or may have later
meals in the evening. The rates in
Lee Hall and the cottages are the
same for others as for the. students
in the conferences. For information,
write the Executive Secretary of the
Blue Ridge Association, Y. M. C. A.
Graduate School, Nashville, Tenn.

By R. B. HOUSE
My "first experience" with a
dent conference in the mountains
was in the summer of 1911. I was
at that time a rising senior in old
Warrenton high school and was at
the conference by reason of having
been chosen treasurer of the school
Y. M. C. A. W. A. Graham, one of
the teachers in the school was an
ardent conference fan and always
carried the whole cabinet and several
other students to each conference.
The conferences at that time were
held at Montreat, 1 the assembly
grounds of the Presbyterian church,
though the Blue Ridge grounds had
already been secured. One of the
featureSOf the 1911 conferencejwas
a hike to Blue Ridge to see the plans
under - way for Robert E. Lee Hall
and to climb High Top and go around
the ridge to Brown's pasture.
I have always been grateful for
this wholesome ten-day. stay, in the
mountains.! It was my first exper
ience of the kind and I still think that
a trip to the mountains for eastern
Carolinians like myself is one of the
strong attractions of the conference
- daily climbs to nearby peaks and
the longer hikes to Graybeard and
Mitchell gave me many pictures to
enjoy all the years that have follow
ed..
John R. Mott, . Robert E. Speer, O.
E. Brown and Raines of Berea were
some of the conference leaders. Per
haps I was exceptionally impression
able, but their leadership seemed to
me to be of the mountain-peak type al
so. At any rate it was a fine introduc
tion to the leaders and the students
in southern college life in 1911.
I returned to the conference for1
the first time in 1928, this , time
housed in the splendid Blue Ridge
buildings. It was luxurious to' have
a room with private bath in contrast
to the old, tent that sheltered me in
1911. But the mountains were there
unchanged, and again it seemed . to
me that the quiet, steady, influence
of the mountains was the chief bene
fit of the experience. For after all
leaders may do their best and this
conference had fine leaders, but the
lasting result ' of the experience is
what happens in the man himself.
And again I am grateful for a
fine human experience. It seems to
me that 'college students are getting
finer all the time. Certainly there
seemed to be evidence of this as I
remembered 1911 and observed and
participated in 1928. And my chief
suggestion to Carolina mtn is that
the mountains and college men of
the South are worth the time and
money the conference will require.

By F. F. BRADSHAW
To give ten days to a thoughtful

wholesome experience. To do this in
company with scores of other col

Hottest Part of Election Will Be
Centered around Editorship
Of Yackety Yack; Booth Will
Be Located in Front of Y.
The campus will go to the polls to
day to vote on men to fill nine cam
pus positions. The one booth in
front of the Y will be open from
nine o'clock in the morning until six
o'clock at night.
Chief interest in today's political
battle are the contests over the edi
torship of the Yackety Yack, there
being three men running for the
honor Travis Brown, Bob Hovis,
and Linwood Harrell; and for the
presidency of the senior class which
will be hotly fought for by Red
Greene and Bob Zealy.
Another point at which there will
be some smart skirmishing will be
the battle over positions on the P. U.;
the organization that supervises all

Speaking before the Philanthropic
Assembly in his inaugural address
Tuesday night, June Crumpler, re
cently elected Speaker of the Assem
bly, outlined a program of the or
ganization's contemplated activities
and plead for more interest and vi
tality in its procedure.. '
Two ' of the major suggestions
made by Speaker Crumpler were to
remodel the society's constitution and
to-spread and explain -the University
honor system throughout the high
schools of the state. The existing
form of the constitution, having re
mained in practically the same state
as it was at the Phi's organization,
is in need of renovation to make it
applicable to 'present- day conditions.
The second suggestion, to send stu
dents to! the high schools of the state
to expound the honor system in use
here, would call for those trained in
public speaking, and would also de
velop" latent talents in others that
hitherto have gone unnoticed. The
program, Speaker Crumpler believes,
would be of tpreat value to the Uni
versity in that it would give high
school students a knowledge of the
system before coming here.
The remainder of Tuesday night's
meeting was given over to the reso
lution that men ; skilled in business
affairs are better able to carry on the
affairs of the nation than are law-
yers. The affirmative . contingent
was lead by Representative Speight;

clean crisp air to do all these at
once is to attend the Blue Ridge "Y"
conference.
To the purposeful student who
knows what he is about and where
he is headed, the conference proce
dure offers a much needed "thinking-things-over"
time. To the stu
dent hesitating between alternative
careers or ethical attitudes the con
ference may furnish time for the
consecutive reflection and- discussion
to a satisfying solution of "his prob
lem. - S.
To one who feels little stir of in
terest or purpose, who is more or less
bored and adrift, the conference ac
tivities and companionships may
mean the contagion of vision and en
thusiasm which will awaken the mo
tives , underlying satisfying achieve
ment. All this may sound like the too-enthusiastic
prospective of a salesman.
Undoubtedly to some students of all
types the conference experience
might be boring and profitless. Oth
ers have in the past had experiences
of the sort described above. One who
has never attended and feels attract
ed by such written descriptions as
contained in the Tar Heel, would do
well to talk' things over with some
one on the campus who. went to "Blue
Ridge in 1928.
