employed in the S. Y. C. Weaving. Another employee, Mrs. Betty Martin,
seated at left. Her daughter, Becky, Little Miss Firestone of 1952, is seated beside her.
(4) Horseshoe pitching is a constant favorite for camp visitors. Two areas for this
game are provided; one beside cabin No. 1, and another at the water front. In the
picture above, employees William Broome and Mrs. Dorothy Owenby measure a
“tie”. (5) Fishing is the sport that has made Lake James famous in this section of
North Carolina. Taking a breather from a trolling operation is J. B. Reeves, husband
of Plant Nurse Grace Reeves. (6) A good many folks combine fishing and boating with
perhaps more emphasis on boating, as is the case with the ladies in the outboard
motor boat. That the two can be combined successfully, however, is evidenced by the
string of “crappies”, shown in the inset, which are similar to several fine specimens
caught by the boating ladies.
