California Missions
The founding of the Spanish Missions in California furnished an epic in history.  These historical monuments are reminders of the great Franciscan adventure.  Years of patient labor, decades of heroic sacrifice by Fray Junipera Serra and his Franciscan brothers lie behind the era of the founding of the twenty-one Missions and their branches, the ruins of which still stand in wonder and beauty, at various points along 600 miles of California's glorious coastal region.

Southern California's Romantic Highways
Southern California's highways are the most romantic in the world.  It is literally but a moment from thriving modern cities to the sleeping haciendas of the early Spanish Rancheros.  An hour's drive takes one from the shores of the beautiful Pacific to snow capped peaks, with golden flecked orange trees nestling in the valleys below.  Resorts abound everywhere, and historical missions mark the route of the Padres.  Modernity harmonizes charmingly with evidence everywhere of its glorious past.

Higher Education

Historic Salem College,
Winston - Salem, N. C.
One of the oldest girls' colleges in the United States; founded in 1771.  This institution during its long period of existence has never closed its doors except for the usual vacation periods.  Students from all sections of the country and from some foreign countries as well matriculate at this  institution.  Some of the country's famous women have been enrolled as students.  When the Moravians settled in Salem, they first built a place of worship, then a school, the forerunner of this modern place, and then their dwellings.

Orton Plantation

 near Wilmington, N.C.
One of the interesting, historical beauty spots preserved from the cradle of America.  Built in 1725 by King Roger Moore, the original house still comprises the central part of the building; surrounded by beautiful trees, festooned with Spanish Moss.
Exquisite gardens, artistically planned where Azaleas, Camellias, Rhododendrons and other beautiful shrubbery, growing in profusion, surround the premises.  These gardens are open to visitors at a moderate fee.  The impressive walls of Colonial St. Philips's Church and the site of the residence of three Colonial Governors are adjacent to these gardens.

Jennie Wade
