Inaugurated last year and off to a j
start which assures an annual occa-1
aion of widespread interest, the j
Spring Blossom Festival in Southern j
Pines will be held again in 1935, the I
date having been set for the week of j
April 8th. To those who were here j
last spring for the week’s events there |
is no need of recounting the success j
of this festive occasion. It was a'
i\?eek of pleasure and interest tor all'
ages. i
I
The Festival was featured by Old '
Slave Day, a day set aside for those !
of the colored race who lived dur- \
ing slavery days. These old timers i
came from far and near, spent a day |
in the Municipal Park telling of their |
experiences and recollections to the |
thousands that gathered about to |
see and hear thezn. A program of en
tertainment was provided, in w'hlch
both white and colored participated,
and the day was one long to be re
membered throughout this section.
Old Slave Day will be repeated this
year.

opened on the 20th of this month and
will remain open until the latter part
of February. The period for hunting
deer is now open and several kills
have been made near Lobelia on Lit
tle River recently.
In addition to nine golf tournaments
scheduled a.t Southern Pines Coun-
try Club this season a number of
tennis events are on the calendar to
be played o'n the sand-clay courts in
the town park. One of the tourneys
in April will include a match in which
college teams will make their first
appearance. Archery is another of
the popular pastimes attracting wide
attention among visitors. In South
ern Pines the sportsman of moderate
circumstances as w'ell as the capita
list has no difficulty in finding a
varied entertainment.
Southern Pines offers the very best
of hotel accommodations at reason
able rates. There are inns to suit any
size purse. They are close enough
to the business section of town to be
convenient, yet far enough away to
avoid the noise of downtown traf
fic.
N'earby Points of Interest
In and around Southern Pines are
hundreds of miles of sand-clay roads,
free from congestion, offering a di
version from monotonous pavement.
Southern Pines is but a few hours
drive from Raleigh, the state capital
of North Carolina, Asheville, anoth
er well known resort, Charlotte,
Greensboro, 'Winston-Salem | and
Chapel HiJl the home of the State
University. It is within two hours ot
Duke University, Durham, one ot
the most richly endowed colleges
in the Unitel States. Within an hours
drive is Fort Bragg, the Government’s
largest aitillery re.servation. A tew
miles to the east is Fayetteville, one
of the oldest cities in North Caro
lina, with its slave market. Four
miles to the south of Southern Pines
is Old Bethesda Church and the tomb
of the late Walter Hines Page, am
bassador to England. Other points of
interest are the old gold mines and
pottery plants north of Carthage.
The town has a very modern and
excellent fire department, and a wa
ter plant of the latest design with a
graduate chemist in charge. The im
pounding reservoir covers more than
600 acres of land and is supplied by
springs. The State Board of Health
has direct control of this filter plaii^
and the inspection of dairies wnich
supply the milk for the community.
The village has an excellent high and
graded school and also a very fine
library governed by some of the out-
standing writers of the day.
M.\NY EVENTS ON SPORTS
PROGR.XM FOR VMNTEK
The ex-service man of the Sand
hills is ably represented by the Sand
hill Post No 134, American Legion.
Organized and chartered in 1922 it
i has steadily grown in influence since
its first commander, Capt. W. G.
Cowgill, assumed office. Its mem
bership in varying numbers has mir
rored both prosperity and depression,
ranging from its highest enrollment
of 135 to 40 in the lean years. Its
doors, however, have always been
open to the ex-service man whether
dues were paid or not and many an
ex-soldier of Moore county as well
as an occasional floater have cause to
feel grateful to it for help rendered
either financially or morally. It has
contributed its mite to the Moore
County Hospital Endowment Fund
and carries regularly on its relief
roll several veterans at Oteen. It has
discovered and helped or cau.sed to be
helped through regular relief chan
nels many soldiers or famines ot sol
diers whose battle against economic
j conditions was a losing one.
I The present staff of officers is as
i follows; Commander, J. F. Sinclair;
I First Vice Commander, F. M. Dwight;
Second Vice Commander, Dan Hor
