Wright: "What Avalon needs is not more people and cheaper transportation, but it needs more people of high-class; more people who have money, and more people who will spend mon- ey. Avalon does not need the mob. The visitors needed at Avalon are those who are able and willing to pay for it .... The people who had been accustomed to visit Avalon enjoyed the high-class people, the lack of disorderly element, the mu- sic, the dancing, the clean streets, the clean beach, the clean bay, the bathing, the clean people ....

But you can expect to do a comfortable business if you will work together, and let the other fella make something, too."
