THE OPEN FORUM
Editor Recorder: I want to give
my heartiest second to your recent
editoriul under the title "Summer
Campers." I believe that Rnndon
may become a popular resort town,
and feel very sure that it will if the
citizens co-operate heartily and stud
iously to that end. What you say
about the financial gain cannot be
questioned. Your suggestion about a
chautauqua program for a week or
ten days during the summer is one
that has been much in my mind since
coming to Bundon, and I hope that a
company of our citizens may come to
gether some time in the near future
and look thoroughly into the possi
bilities along "this line.
It seems to me that wo have some
thing in this in which we can all get
together in enthusiastic interest; and
I want to say parenthetically, that I
consider this a very great end in it
self. It is tho "pull together" that
counts for any town, and this applies
to all kinds of enterprises. Even when
there is an immediate personal loss
or sacrifice, an advantage to one cit
izen is sooner or later shared by the
In making our town a popular re
sort we would help every business
from peddling fish to running a banlc.
Tho chautauqua feature would immed
iately brand us as enterprising and
progressive. It would quicken and
purify our social life. It would en
largo the vision of our citizens. It
would bring inspiration and aspcra
tion to our school children. No one
who is interested in tho quality of our
citizenship in the present or tho fu
turo can nfford to bo uninterested in
the propositi to have a week or two
of high-grade entertainments for the
evenings, lectures for the nfternoons
and study classes for tho mornings
If Iiandon would liko to be 'placed
on the map" a little more surely and
in a littlo bolder type, I believe she
can do nothing just now that will con
tribute more to that end, than to
make largo provision for those who
come in wagons for a few weeks
camping, and largor provision for
those who come by auto, train and
ship, who will put up at our hotels or
rent cottages on a chautauqua ground
