X f, i ^ |A f ^Y~ TAINMENT MOTORCADE kitchen cabinet orchestra to appear next friday night The Kitchen Cabinet Orchestra is the expressive title of an amusement featuie being planned by the local Woman's Club for production on Friday, October 2nd at the school auditorium. Local talent is being used in this unique orchestra. Nearly everyone has heard the comb give forth beautiful music when played upon by the magic breath of rare individuals: but never before has one heard a common kitchen pot -a black one at that-biing forth harmony except with the good things it ing for the dinner table. But the pot, bread pan, nut meg grater, sink strainer, rice boiler, sieve, and rolling pin, however strange and out of I lace it may seem, all join in one harmonious chorus when played upon by the nimble fingers of this unusual orchestral talent. Truly this is an unusual orchestra and an unusual production and the prediction is being made that there won't he enough seats in the large 'school auditorium to accomodate those I who will seek admittance, j '1 he names of the members of the orchestra are so expressive as to make it seem wise to append them to this sketch. They follow: Director, Madam Kitchcnett; Header. Mille Broadcaster; Pianist, Miss Lizzie T. Strainer. Miss I. C. Pick, Miss I Evangeline T. Spoonheimer, Soli ists, Mme i T. Potte, Miss Ura Cheese Crater, Miss Daisy Roller Pin. Mile Flour Sifterine. Other members of the orchestra are Mrs. St. O. V. Grater. Mile, Skiltctti. Mile. Nut Meg Grater. Mile. Perky Later, Mile.

ADVERTISE IN THE SCOUT "IT WILL MAKE YOU IICH" 1 North Carolina 6c COPY?$1.50 PER YEAB J J WORK ON NEW BAPTIST CHURCH BEGUN THIS WEEK The work of tearing down the old residence on the Baptist Church prop' erty at the corner of Pcachtree Street and We^t Central Avenue was begurt early Monday morning and by Tue?" day night another landmark of Murphy had passed for * newer and more modern structure. This old dwelling had withstood the storm3 of time tor rr.ore than seventy years, during which time it had silently seen men come and n en no. but it quickly "fell fiko n tri ant --f l ?r - ??... .uviu vi i i? uugni oefore the hammer and tools of the wrecking party. It was at firat a >ma!l log cabin, but was remodeled and added to from time to time until it tojk on the appearance of a respectable building. The raring of thi? old building marked the beginning of the construction of the n* * Baptist church, which has been looked forward to for the past several year- by the people of * * * Murphy. It is contemplated tj grade the lot down to about one and a half to two feet above the sidewalk. A steam shove! ha- been secured for this purpose and most of the grading work will be done by free volunteer labor by members of the church. It is expected that most of the rough work will be done in this way. The plana of the new building call for a three storv structure, with a seating capacity* of 900 for the auditorium. The Sunday school department will easily accomodate 600. with accomodations for the church training service or B. V. I\ V. depart- ^ ment. It will be erected at a cost of approximately $50,000.00. The wall will be erected and the building covered this fall, and if possible made ready for use by early spring. The building committee it composed of C. M. Wofford, chair- ^ -gh man, .1. M. Barnett, A. B. Dickey, A. L. Martin and R. F-.
