We have good schools, including a $150,000.00 polytechnic high school.While we have a "Pike," and an 1,800-foot pier stretching out into the ocean, large hotels and apartments, amply able to accommodate enormous crowds, we have one distinction (our greatest asset, and that for which we are best known as a pleasant place for a man to send his family); we have no saloons.Many physicians will be glad to know that they can bring their families to such a place
