BY FACULTY MUSICIANS
The concert at the school theatre
auditorium last Thursday night by
.Virginia G. Fisher, teacher of vio
lin at Western Carolina Teachers
college, and her accompanist, Her
bert Livingston, of the teaching
staff of the University of North
Carolina, was presented before a
very appreciative audience.
The brilliant performance of the
two coming stars, has been high
ly praised by Prof. Rudolph Kra
tina of the faculty of the Univer
sity of Georgia, who comes from
a long line of musicians, himself
a noted cellist and member of the
Dresden Opera company for 25
years. Mr. Kratina said the three
essentials of a truly great artist
are quality of tone', technique and
an understanding of the compos
ers. 1 The possession of these es
sentials by Mrs. Fisher was appar
ent from the first violin note, and
the program was given Iwith an
ease and grace that captivated her
audience. Her rendition of Gusi
koff's Scherzando from American
Vialin Concerto was superb, and
Schubert's' Ave Marie was played
Mr. Livingston was completely
at home in the modern music and
charmed . his "listeners with - his
presentation, of Stevens' Rondo.
His presentation of the Chopin
Etude was one of his best numb
ers. Mr. Livingston's adaptability
as an accompanist showed real and
well-trained talent to subordinate.
The concert was given under the
auspices of the P.-T. A. of High
Music lovers coming up from
Franklin for the concert were Mr.
and Mrs. Harold Sloan, Mrs.
George Sloan, Miss Timoxena
Sloan, Mrs. Gilmer Jones and Miss

SHAW PLAY TO
BEGIN JUG. 11
Review of 'Candida' To Be
Given By Highlands
Candida, which the Highlands
Community Theatre will present
at the Highlands School Theatre
the week of August 11 at 8:30
p. m., first startled the world with
honesty and candour in 1898, and
has never lost its power- to shock
and amuse. It was first presented
in the United States in 1903, and
was the play responsible for estab
lishing George Bernard Shaw's
popularity in this country. It is
Katherine Cornell's favorite play,
and crowds flock to see it when
ever she revives it, either in New
York or on ' the road. Last season,
Cornelia Otis" Skinner, the great
monologist, toured the country in
Candida with tremendous success,
"Candida", the central character
around whom the play is built, is
the warmest, most delightful of all
Shaw's characters. She is the only
one at whom he does not poke
fun. He himself has said that he
meant to raise his wicked' eye
brows at her, as he does to his
other characters, but he fell in
love with her . himself and could
do nothing about her, except to
worship her. as all men do.
Candida is the wife of a very
liberal, social-minded minister,
whose position and dignity, she
has maintained throughout the
years by her quiet charm and ef
ficiency, though he does not know
it. A young poet, extremely young,
falls in love with her, and upsets
the household with his devastating
quick-wittedness. Shaw once Said
that he is a comedian because
people laugh at what he .says most
seriously. That is also true of Can
dida's poet, young Marchbanks. He
has such a way of blurting out the
truth that it embarrasses those he
comes in contact with, and though
everybody laughs at him -at first,
in the end those who come in
contact with him are forced to
meet him on his own grounds.
When he declares his love for Can
dida, her husband, ,Rev. James
Mavor Morell, is vastly amused.
However, he soon finds himself
jealous and suspicious, and the two
men argue it out, without taking
Candida into their confidence. In
the end, of course, she straightens

Bowen, of Tazwell, Va.spen't the

Live-at-Home Program Of
Farmer And Wife
By FLORENCE S. SHERRILL
Home Demonttration Agent
Emphasis is being pTaml all over
the United . States for farm fami
lies to adopt live-at-home programs
in cooperating with national de-'
Richard Cobb and his wife of
Highlands, the former a unit dem
onstration farmer, agree that hard
work, good management and co
operation are necessary in order to
have a comfortable living as well
as extra income.
The Cobbs live on a h -acre farm
of which 35 is in Woodland, They
have lived on this farm ' for 3D
years during which-time ' they,, have
not only made a good living ;"' they
have bought farm tools and such
oenveniences for', the. home as -the
following :. A washing machine op
erated by gasoline, an oil-burning
refrigerator, running water .in .''the,
house which is pumped by a hy
draulic 'rami a 'windmill which gen
erates enough power for a radio
and two lights for the home, and
a pressure cooker which was
bought this last year.
Tractor And Oxen
It is interesting to know that
Mr: Cobb owns two exen that he
agrees are more economical to feed
than other livestock. In addition
he has a small walking tractor
which he uses in cultivating his
row crops. '
The story of the Cobb family's
food supply is most interesting for
a home agent and' county agents
who, quite often visit this unit dem
Mrs. Cobb always greets these
agents with, "We. have just a farm
dinner, today." It turns out to be
a most delicious dinner and may
include country ham or chicken,
beans,' corn- which has been pre
served by drying, bread made from
soybean and rye flour, potato salad,
honey, strawberry preserves food
that is fit for a king all raised
on this farm. .
In the course of the conversation
Mrs, Cobb will tell you that from
two cows she sold 61 pounds of
butter during the month of May
which brought a total of, $18.30.
She also sells buttermilk at 10
cents a quart. The interesting
thing about the butter is that she
packs down her surplus during the
winter months when there is .no
tourist trade. During the summer
she uses this butter which has
been packed, in brine for -her. cook-ring
in order to sell her fresh
; When there is a surplus of milk
in : the winter, Mrs. Cobb makes
American cheese w'hich is more ap
petizing than commercial cheese;
according to County Agents S. W.
Mendenhall and T. H. Fagg.
The egg supply; is treated in
somewhat similar manner as the
butter. Eggs, during the winter, are
packed 'in water glass to be used
in the home during the summer.
Boris Art Exhibit.
The exhibition of photographs by ,
Paul Boris of '.Cincinnati,' at the .
.Museum attracted '. many visitors.
This photography exhibit . wa.s uni-1
que . for Highlands, ami of such
high artistic value that it .would '.
be unusual in any conitnunit y.
' Mr. Jioris' specializes in portrait
photography, hut lias an inherent
flare for the artistic j and. creative,
combined with techniques- that in
crease his ability to reproduce
beauty for the layman. All of Itfis
spare-!', time is devoted .'to making. ,
this sort 'of . photograph, his inter
est' being equally divided ibetween
character studies and landscapes.
This exhibit is attracting a great .,
deal of 'attention' and merited en
thusiasm'. .Miss Bragg, museum' di
rector, is to be -congratulated in.
bringing-, this .type of cultural and
artistic attraction to Highlands. '-
Mr. Boris vbi is a native of
Greece, commented recently, "To
think that year after year 1 have
been returning to Greece and other
parts of Europe, without ever
knowing, or having had anyone
telr'me, that the terrain -of West-
em North Carolina is so inuch like
that of my 'homeland', with .the
added blessing of beauty of peace."
A. large part of the exhibit is giv
en 'over to 'Grecian;' scenes and
studies, made oyer a period of -,
A total of 328 dozens of eggs v.e.re
sold laslt year, bringing a. total of
Small Fruit Raited
.Small fruits: are raised isuqh as
raspberries and grapes. Twenty
dollars was obtained from the sale
of raspberry jam last year. .
Bees offer a means of increas
ing the income. An extractor is
used to remove the honey from
The meat supply consists of two
hogs from which the hams and
side meat are cured. One ham
was sold tor $10. The curing is
done' at home,' using , hickory bark
The food preservation carried on
by Mrs. Cobb shows how nothing
is wasted. Before Mrs. Cobb- could
get her pressure cooker, she sav
ed her corn by drying.
The Cobbs have built up their
standard of living over these years.
A standard of food products is a
result. Tourists have truly "beaten
a path to their door." demanding
The only liberty I nicaii; is a '
liberty connected with order; that
not only exists along with order
and virtue, but which cannot exist
at all without them.
