dreamed of putting together a collection of
information and artifacts that convey the
colorful and unique history of the growth of
the Piedmont communities through the
tradition that once united people the
country general store.
The original Patterson family, to which
the Leigh-Booker family is indirectly related,
set up a mill on the banks of New Hope
Creek and later added a general store. From
1875 to 1885, a post office was located there,
giving Patterson's Mill a spot on the map
and making it the heart of the surrounding
community. The Bookers chose the original
name for their store in honor of the mill.
The store was built from bits and pieces of
old homes and businesses with historical
interest in the triangle area. From
H olloman's Crossroads Country Store, built
on the Wake and Harnett County line in

1 890, came the wooden counters, shelves and
glass cases. Many of the ceiling beams came
from the Pearl Textile Mill in Durham, the
first textile mill the Duke family built as they
expanded their interests outside of the
tobacco industry. The John Poc home, an
antebellum house built in 1860, was the
source of other partsof the framework of the
Patterson Mill Store.
Elsie Booker is a registered pharmacist
and a whole section of the store is decorated
with old medicine bottles, niort and pcstals.
and even the ornate wooden wall fronts Irom
old drug stores in which she worked in the
Durham-Chapel Hill area. This miniature
pharmacy includes the soda fountain and
stools where you could once climb upon and
order an Orange Crush for a nickel. Behind
the wall of the drug counter are many old
time gadgets used for mixing medicines.

If you are interested in math, physics or engineering,
the Navy has a program you should know about.
It's called the NUPOC-Collegiate Program (NUPOC
is short for Nuclear Propulsion Officer Candidate), and if
you qualify it can pay you as much as $611 a month for
the remainder of your senior year. Then after 16 weeks of
Officer Candidate School, you will receive an additional
year of advanced technical education, education that
would cost thousands in a civilian school, but in the
Navy we pay you. And at the end of the year of training,
you'll receive a $3,000 cash bonus.
It isn't easy. Only one of every six applicants will be
selected, and there are fewer than 300 openings. But
those who make it find themselves in one of the most
elite engineering training programs anywhere. With
unequalled hands-on responsibility, a $24,000 salary in
four years, plus travel, medical benefits and education
For more details on this program, ask your
placement officer when a Navy representative will be on
campus, or call the Officer Program Office listed below;
or send your resume' to Navy Nuclear Officer Program,
Code 312, 4015 Wilson Blvd., Arlington, Va. 22203. The
NUPOC-Collegiate Program. It can do more than help
you finish college; it can lead to an exciting opportunity.

In an adjoining room is a doctor's office
from which you can imagine the good doctor
himself stepping out perhaps to take his

Patterson's Mill Store off Farrington road charms and surprises visitors with bits ot
nostalgia like obsolete cigarette packs (above), antique telephones (right), and an
old-fashioned drug store (left). The store was built from parts of old buildings in an
attempt to preserve a heritage that some of us may not remember and to remind us of
some things we may never have a chance to see again. Staff photos by Allen

Patterson Mill model, according to Curtis
Booker. T hey frequently started with only
one room, and as they expanded to meet
consumer demands for things farmers no
longer had time to make for themselves,
rooms were added on wherever they could be
adjoined to the main structure. This often led
to some rather strangely shaped buildings.
Ironically, now that the Bookers have
worked so hard to protect the past, the future
is quickly becoming their worst enemy. The
proposed extension of Interstate 40
threatens to cut a gap on the l.cigh-Bookcr
farm between the Patterson Mill Store and
the old Leigh homeplace.

would have to go to avoid tearing them

curtain to look out the back of the store.
A huge rolling pasture dotted with trees
and horses was beautiful even on a rainy
afternoon. It was hard to imagine anything
else belonging there.
In u story in the luil Tar Heel Thursday, a
quotation was missattributcd to electrical
engineer Ray DuBosc. Assistant housing director
Russell Perry, and not DuBosc. said repeated
tripping of circuit breakers could cause wiring
insulation to melt, creating a fire hazard. DuBose
said circuit breakers cut off current before the
wattage is high enough to overload the wires, and
thus tripping the circuits is not dangerous.
