iiitauiuunxmxuuxiiixttuiiintitutin
Southern Pines has an active Cham
ber of Commerce which differs from
the ordinary run of boards of trade
and civic-boosting organizations. Its
paramount interest is to see that sea
sonal winter residents of the com
munity have a good time here, that
they are acquainted with the many
and varied activities of the section,
that they leave, when leave they
must, desiring to return.
In cooperation with the Board of
Town Commissioners the Chamber
of Commerce plans entertainment fea
tures throughout the season—and
even during the off-season months
arranges diversion.s for the resident
population, such as Fourth of July
celebrations, outings and dances.
Much has been done during the past
year by way of a program of activi
ties, featured by the aiinual Spring
Blossom Festival, the first of which
was held so successfully last April.
More about this event will be found
elsewhere.
Anothpr recent accomplishment
was the erection on proper-ty adjoin
ing the baseball field of a horse show
ring, where this winter it is planned
to have bi-weekly programs of eques
trian events for the amusement of
the many riders who winter here, and
the entertainment of all.
The Chamber plays a large part in
keeping the town spick and span, in
promoting planting, especially of
w'inter grass; in all these things
which make for an attractive village.
It cooperates with the U. S. Highway
No. 1 Association in highway beauti
fication and in presenting the advan
tages of that Maine-to-Florida route
to the touring public. It aids the ho
tels and shop-keepers in their efforts
to win their fair share of travel and
resort business.
The annual banquet of the local
Chamber of Commerce is one of the
highlights of the winter season. It
is a get-together of permanent resi
dents, a gathering of interested wm-
ter visitors, an opportunity to meet
old friends and make new ones. Some
man prominent in national or world
affairs heads the toast list each year,
and the entertainment features are
varied and numerous.
Officers and directors of the Cham
ber of Commerce meet regularly
throughout the year. The present of
ficers are Nelson C. Hyde, president;
the Rev. J. Fred Stimson, vice-presi
dent; Dr. L. B. McBrayer, national
councilor; D. D. S. Cameron, sec
retary and treasurer.
Air-Conditioned Cars
Feature S. A. L. Service
Over-Niffht Trip to Sandhills
Made More Comfortable
for Passengers
Southern Pines is served by the
Seaboard Air Line Railway, which is
providing exceptional service to the
Sandhills from New York and the
north. The over-night trip from the
metropolis here has within the year
been made more comfortable for pas
sengers than before through the in
troduction of air-conditioned trains
and Pullmans to the service.
H. E. Pleasants, the Seaboard rep.
resentative in Raleigh, this week
stated that due to the exceptionally
heavy exodus of Northerners to the
South this season, the completely air.
conditioned Orange Blossom Special,
leader of Seaboard’s famous fleet of
air-conditioned trains, makes its first
trip from New York and the East on
December 15th on the fastest sche
dule on which it was ever operated.
The first trip southbound last sea-
son was on January 2nd.
The “Blossom” leaves Eastern cit
ies in the afternoon and early even
ing and arrives at South Florida re
sorts the following afternoon. The '
Blossom sets the highest standards
for equipment and excellence of ser
vice. Although all special services are
available there is no “special service
charge.” ,
Only the most modern Pullman
equipment is in its complement. It
will carry a club car with buffet |
and valet service, and a lounge-li-
brary car. The atmosphere of these
two cars is comparable to that of a
well-appointed home or club—with
i deep, comfortable chairs, luxurious ^
I carpets, and soft, shaded lights. The
I extra-ordinary large windows are
I ideal for enjoyment of the beautiful
I scenery all along the route. A Sea-,
board dining car — through from
New York to destinations—serves all
meals—savory, Southern meals— '
famed far and wide for their excel-'
lence. Sleeping cars—productive of
sound sleep—with drawing rooms,
compartments, lower and upper
berths, make up the balance of the
Orange Blossom Special.
Last season the “Blossom” was'
the only air-conditioned train oper.
ated between New York and Flor
ida. Its succe.ss was so phenomenal
that now three all-year Seaboard
trains are equipped with the Pull
man Company’s latest air-conditlon-
Special, the New York-Florlda Limit,
ed, both serving the Sandhills and
Southern resorts, and the Cotton
States Special, between New York,
Washington and Atlanta, Blrming.

CAROLINA POWER & LIGHT
GIVES EFFICIENT SERVICE
Under the efficient management of
Ralph Chandler, the Carolina Power
and Light Company, one of the larg
est public utilities companies in the
south, maintains a modern office on
East Broad street. Southern Pines,
and this company furnishes power
and light for the entire sandhills. In
addition to this service, electrical
supplies of all kinds may be pur
chased from the Southern Pines of
fice, headquarters in this section.
CHORAL SOCIETY HEADS
MUSICAL ORGANIZATIONS
The Southern Pines Choral Society
meets regularly throughout the win
ter season and is the community lead
er in all things musical. The society
invites all those interested In signing
to join with them at their rehearsals
and take part in the concert which
they give during the winter months.
(Continued from page 1)
the roads going over the hill east
ward from the Bethe.sda church vi
cinity were traversed by the armies
which came from the southwest
across the Yadkin between Cheraw
and Mt. Gilead. The Bethesda section
is also identified with the early his
tory of the county, as it wa.s one of
the origina’ seats of Pri^sbyterianism
in this part of the state and for that
matter of the entire South, for it was
the immediate result of the first vis
it to North Carolina of McAden. the
pioneer Presbyterian preacher from
the Philadelphia Presbytery, sent
down this way on a visit of inquiry
and study, and who passed by Long-
street, out the Yadkin road, by Bar
becue at Cameron Hill, and the
Bluffs near Fayetteville, which did
not exist then, and preached at each
of the three places in the mother
churches of the South and West.
On top of the hill east of the old
Bethesda church is the high point and
the picturesque outlook of this re
gion. Under the hill to the eastward
Solemn Grove academy was estab
lished much more than a century ago,
and it sent its flocks of educated
men to all parts of the country, to
the G”,lf and beyond the Mississippi
to take prominent parts in the ai-
fairs of the nation. The site of the
old academy as near as can be lo
cated is on the Marks farm, under
the hill, close by the house which
was the Billy McNeill place until a
few years ago when it passed into
other hands.
Lakeview and the Little River val
ley are historical. There were some
of the first settlements in this sec
tion. Scotchmen came up the Little
River valley and up the James Creek
valley about 1760 to make settlement
there and in the Aberdeen neighbor
hood. Drowning Creek is also among
the early .settlements. The Horse
shoe on Deep River is interesting to
explore. A good way to pick up his
tory is to ramble along the country
roads and to stop at the farm homes
and talk with the people. Some are
not familiar with their surroundings,
but some are well informed and high
ly interesting.
