The Southern Railway is authority
for thi' statement, that in addition to
the people who spend their vacation
period in, Western North Carolina
now, at least 2o,()00 more will flock
here the first summer there are ac
commodations to care for them; and
that is only the lioginning. If accom
modations can be arranged for and
these people are informed and, after
spending then- vacation here, return
to their respective communities .satis
fled with the accommodations and
treatment afforded them, each on? can
be counted on to act as an advertiser
of this section of our state as a vara,
tion report. So, the number of regu
lar Western North Carolina vacation
ists will increase each year in pro
portion to our ability and willing
ness to care for them. The situation
at present may be likened to that of
the farmer who knows lie has a pro
ductive and vonequenll valuable
piece of land and allows it to lie
By 'ignoring the possibilities of pro
viding he right kind of vacation ac.
commodation.- for the thousands who
would come here from .such as Cin
cinnati. New Orleans, Memphis, etc.,
the ci'izens. and speak ng more par
ticularly, the farmers of Western
North Carolina, are practicaliy refus
ing to accept the hundredsof thou
sands of dollars thesje vacationists
would leave here each season.
We speak specifically of the farm
er, because it is in large measure his
opportunity that is being lost. Thou
sands of people in the cities mentioned
cannot afford to live in high priced
hotels. Thousands more, particularly
those with children, do not care for
the life of the summer hotels, but
choose the change to life on the farm
with its qufet simplicity and close
ness to nature providing the farm
house is equipped with those simple
conveniences to which the city dweller
is accustomed, and considers funda
mental and indispensible to his com
fort, and that the food is wholesome,
of variety and well cooked.
Western North 'Carolina, Inco., with
headquarters in Asheville was organ
ized to serve ail the people of this
section of the State. Its executive
committee and officers are confident
that in natural .scenic beauty and in
vigorating yet equable climate, h U
unsurpassed in the United States.
One of its ohectives is to acq-iaint
the people, particularly those who are
accustomed to take a regular summer
or full vacation, with the accessibility,
charms and health-giving attributes of
these western counties of our State,
then induce th?m to come here and
by so doing, to provide an added
source of income for the farmer wh )
is progressive enough to realize what
that increase in income will add to
his we'l-being and that of his family.
There are thousands of such farm
ers in Western Carolina, men of vision
and capacity, who are willing, and
what is mure important, equipped and
prepared to accent from tw to ten
naying guests this summer. But, they
have no means of advertising the fact.
They are, as it were, cut off from a
source of supply that means added
comfort and increased prospects.
That is where Western North Caro
lina, Inc.. can and' will function for
them. Western North Carolina, Inc.,
is now engaged in compiling a list of
farm houses in this section, in which
summer boarders can be accommo
dated with profit to the farmer and
satisfaction to the guest. In compil
ing this list. Western North Caro
lina, Inc., must have the, assistance of
the progressive farmers in every one
of our twenty-lfive counties. That as
sistance will cost them exactly two
rents the price of postage to mail a
letter informing Western North Car
olina, Inc., of this desire to inqreasc
their income by accepting summer
boarders. Western North Carolina,
Inc., will, in turn, answer the commu
nication, setting forth the minimum
standard that has br-en adopted for
farm boarding houses inquiring as
to rates, location, etc. and will then,
If th? reply be satisfactory, list the
farm home and recommend it as a
