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 fallow. 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 vacation home to some of those '.wen-ty-five thousand people who seek to come here.
