LAKE EMORW HAS
A NEAR WATERSPOUT
Several days ago, Dr. Horsley
and Rev. Mr. Underwood, of Frank
lin, witnessed the unusual phenom
enon of a waterspout on Lake
Emory a short distance above the
power dam. Perhaps it is a mis
nomer to say waterspout. Technicr
ally water spout ' is defined as a
slender funnel-shaped 'cloud, ex
tending from a cumulous cloud
down to a cloud of spray torn dp
by whirling winds from, the- surface,
water. The sun was shining. No
clouds above. But . the whirling
winds lifted a column of spray to
a height estimated to be" 40 feet.
The whirlwind reached the shore

NEW TRENDS IN
Having just returned from the
annual meeting of the North Caro
lina Education association and the
State Home Economics association,
I feel constrained to pass on a
few of the thoughts gleaned from
a talk made by Miss Rose, who
is head of the home economics de
partment of Cornell University,
Let us consider this question:
"What is education doing to train
people for home living?" Are we
training not merely the mind but
the whole man? This undoubtedly
brings- to mind the fact that folks
should be educated or trained men
tally, physically, spiritually or mor
al v, socially.
Should not education train people
to get; a living, train people to live
a life, train people to mold a
world? Should not everything one
learns be taught "in relation to"
something. Science in relation to
health, purchasing for the" 'home,
soil building or what not, English
in relation to bur daily reading,
near the point occupied .by Mr.
Underwood who took refuge be
hind a pole of the power line. This
proved to be an ark of safety for
the occasion. Reaching the forest
the miniature storm was soon brok
en up. The observers rightly
thought this a most unusual occur
rence. It is rare for a whirlwind
to develop sufficient suction to lift
spray to this height, especially on
so small a sheet of water.
Little Emma Jean Downs, daugh
ter of Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Downs,
has been ill for several days.
Charlie Shuler, George Sanders
and Bobby Sanders, CCC camp
boys, are on a visit home.
Jim Thompson and Willie Shuler
are recent enrollees in the CCC.
Mr. and Mrs. Charlie Smith and
Mr. and Mrs. Crawford Smith, of
Sylva, visited Mrs. J. L. Smith
Miss Alice Dean, who recently
graduated at . the Franklin high
school, has gone to Asheville and
will take a course in beauty culture.
Zollie Pressley, who has been
visiting relatives in Macon, spent
Sunday, night with his sister, Mrs.
O. V. Mincey. He departed for De
troit where he has been employed
for the past year.
B. L. Dean was in Asheville and
Knoxville on business the first of
J. R. Berry,-. Weimar Mincey and
Billy Mincey are erecting a trans
mission line" from, the privately
owned power plant at Berry's Mill
to the Reid Mica mine. Screening
equipment will be installed. It is
expected much scrap mica can be
recovered around the old workings.
The dry- screening; method seems
to work well lor "locations' where
water-is not available for operating

, Let those -of us . who take part
in home demonstration work and
4-H club work check up and see
whether or not we are living up
to the modern conception of edu
cation. Are we developing ourselves
in this threefold fashion If we
are not, are we giving to our
children the opportunity to takjC
their places in the world as intel

with the many problems of civiliza
tion ? Is it enough that we give
them book learning alone? Can
they take their rightful places so

as possible in order, that they may
pursue the daily tasks -before them ?
It takes three, perhaps more gen

serious responsibility which rests
upon us. Do we measure up? Do
we keep up? . .
