MUSEUM BUILDING MAY
SOON BE ERECTED
According to figures left with
Miss Albertina Staub by Dr. Clark
Foreman on his recent brief visit
here, it seems that only $2,500
more Ls needed for the long-dream-ed-of
museum building to become
a reality. The small annex to the
library built about 10 or 11 years
ago to house the museum's initial
exhibit has become much too crowd
ed. Both Miss Staub and Dr. Fore
man axe trustees of the Highlands
museum and biological laboratory,
and are listed among its 50 found
ers and charter members.
The plans for the museum call
for a stone building with copper
roof at a cost of $21,940. Of this
amount the WPA will furnish $13,
509 in labor, the Town of High
lands and the U. S. forest .service
will give $2,925 in materials, the
business men of Highlands have
subscribed $500, and the museum
and friends of the museum have
raised $2,506, which leaves a bal
ance of $2,500 yet to be raised,
$1,000 of which is already pledged
if and when the remaining $1,500
Among the founders and life
members of the Highlands museum
and biological laboratory are rep

the higher institutions of learning

the need of a Southern biological
laboratory and research i&tation,
and a number of these scientists
have enjoyed more than one sum
mer's work in, the laboratory since
it was built several years ago.
The Honorable Burnham Stan
dish Colhurn. of Asheville. was for
a number of years the museum's
able president. He was succeeaea
by the present president, Dr. W.
C. Coker, of the University of
