Lights and Shadows
'IXT'K have viewed with growing alarm the strange
new friendships lining up in Europe. Hitler
and Stalin, Turkey and Russia, Japan and Russia
these cast a sinister shadow across the political
horizon of that hemisphere.
It is heartening to catch some bright gleams of
new lineups and old friendships renewed in our own
political picture. The strengthening of the ties
which our neighbor republics of the Western hem
isphere reported from the Pan-American conference
now in session in Panama is encouraging for per
manent mutual understanding and benefits.
Then, in a more personal field, President Roose
velt must feel a heart warming in the accord of his
erstwhile adversaries of the last presidential cam
paign in their support of his program to keep the
United States out of war.
Likewise the hatchet burying by Senator Glass
and the radio speech by Al Smith bring old friends,
back into the same camp to work for the success
. of a common cause. And', while we feel certain
doubts concerning some of our representatives in
the stand they are taking or are not taking in
this momentous question, it is gratifying to learn
that our near neighbor, Senator Jimmie Byrnes
of South Carolina, is a leader in the fight that is in
progress to repeal the embargo. His prestige is
well earned, because every big bill that Mr. Byrnes
has sponsored has been successful.
WEATHER REPORT FOR
(A weather report . each week
has been requested by a number
of the people who ' have summer
homes here, and anything unusual
in weather conditions will be re
ported in this column.)
Highlands experienced a most de
lightful September. Not a frost in
'the whole 30 days ; only, gloriously
beautiful weather, slightly on the
warm side, with very little ram
Cooler with the coming of October,
and a light frost on Monday morn
ing, followed by Indian summer
Miss Pearl Patten and Lambert
Talley were married in a quiet
ceremony in Walhalla, S. C, Sat
urday evening, September 30. Mrs.
Talley is the daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Arthur Patten of Walhalla,
and liolds a position at Hotel Ed
wards. Mr. Talley is the son of Mr.
and Mrs. Harrison Talley of the
Clear Creek community, and as
sists his father in the care of the
Salinas orchards. Mr. 'and Mrs.
Talley are at present making their
home with the groom's parents.
Three Hundred Years Progress in Printing
TTIE latest postage stamp, recently placed on sale,
A commemorates the 300th anniversary of the
bringing of the first printing press to the American
The design of the new stamp, of the three-cent
denomination, is an unusually beautiful engraving
of the original Stephen Daye printing-press that
was brought to Cambridge, Massachusetts, from
England in 1639. The color is a light purple. The
dates 1639-1939 are carried on the stamp which
will be a delight to philatelists as still another of
the interesting commemorative stamps of Mr. Far
ley's administration of the Post Office Department.
We lea ii that this primitive machine was the
only 'means of printing that the colonies possessed
for twenty years the forerunner of the vast print
ing industry of the United States totalling nearly
two billions annually.
The original Stephen Daye press is now in the
exhibition of American typographical and print
ing art in New York's Grand Central Palace, along
side the latest machines. The. contrast marks an
amazing period in civilization's mechanical progress
as it contributes to the spread of knowledge and
ideas by means of the printed word.
The American Zone of Safety
TTHE joint action of the 21 American republics
taken at Panama Monday night may prove to
be a more effective means of keeping the indej
pendent nations of the western hemisphere out of
war than any neutrality legislation which may be
passed by the congress of the United States.
The declaration agreed upon is intended as a
complement to the Monroe dofTne, and establishes
a broad safety zone in American waters for Amer
ican shipping. This zone, which in some places ex
tends 300, miles from the coast, is to be patrolled
constantly by vessels of the various republics, and
belligerent nations will be warned that no hostil
ities will be permitted therein.
. Drastic regulations have been set up to control
submarines, warships and aircraft of belligerents
entering the "safety zone," and the combined re
publics will see that these regulations are observed.
Because of the fact that the South American re
publics have few naval craft, the burden of the
patrol will have to be borne by the United States.
Credits will also be extended by this country to
the neighbor nations to the south in order that they
may be . able to preserve their economic balance,
during the struggle in Europe.
MINUTES OF FIRST S. S.
The Highlands Presbyterian
church is indebted to Dr. Harry
T. Kelsey, son of S. T. Kelsey,
founder of Highlands, for the orig
inal copy of the minutes of ' the
first organized Sunday School held
in -Highlands on March 12, 187(6.
These minutes have been carefully
pieserved by the Kelsey family for
63 years, and have been sent by
Dr. Kelsey to Miss Albertina Staub
to be placed where they will be
preserved and cherished. It has
been decided to place a typed copy
in the Highlands Museum and the
original, on which the ink is be
coming faded, in the archives of
the Presbyterian church. The inter
esting minutes are given in part
"According to a previous call
persons to the number of 26 as
sembled at the log law-house on
Sunday morning, March 12, 1876,
at ten o'clock to form a Sunday
school. Arthur Hutchinson moved
to proceed to a permanent organi
zation. T. Baxter White was elect
ed superintendent, S. T. Kelsey,
secretary. The school was named
'Highlands Union Sunday School'
by Mrs. S. T. Kelsey, who nomi
nated James Sopher for chorister.
Motion was made' to choose a
board of directors from, different
parts of town and the following
were chosen : Miss lempie Hill.
Miss Mary E. Wright. Mrs.
George A. Jacobs J. W. Wilson,
N. Jenks, J. lord and Grundy
"A further organization of the
school was effected as follows:
Mrs. G. A. Jacobs selected as
teacher for the infant class; Esq.
Hill as teacher for adults; Mrs.
Baxter White wis selected as
teacher for adult females; motion
by . S. T. Kelsey that the school
open at ten o'clock and close at
eleven. Motion by C. W. Hill that
Mrs. Kelsey be selected for mem
bers of the school who could not
read. Mrs. Kelsey stated that she
would meet those who desired . to
learn to read at nine o'clock in
the morning of Sunday. God's
blessing was asked on the newly
formed school. Mr. Kelsey was
called upon for remarks and re
sponded in an impressive manner,
which should tell on future inter
est in the school. After singing,
the school was dismissed."
The Samuel Priolcau Ravenel
family of Charleston came to High
lands in 1876, spending four wint
er. here, as well as the summers.
Mrs. Ravenel immediately became
an active worker in the Sunday
school, and realizing the need for
a better place to meet, set about
to build a church, with the result
that the Kelsey family cave the
lot and Mr. and Mrs. Ravenel
gave the church and supervised its
building. The Kelseys and the Rav-
cnels being of the Presbyterian
faith, as were practically all the
early settlers, the new church na
turally became the Presbyterian
church. Thii church was dedicated
in 1885, and the Sunday school
moved to its new quarters, where
it has continued to meet through
out the years.
These pioneer Highlanders be
lieve also that a Sunday school
should have music, and Mis,s Mar
guerite and Miss Clare Ravenel
recall quite vividly seeing Mr. S.
T. Kelsey on Sunday mornings
carrying his small organ, or melo
deon, on his back across what is
now the town to the little log law
house so that Mrs. Kelsey might
play the accompaniments for the
That a love for Highlands was
deeply imbedded in the hearts of
the early settlers is shown in the
following letter written in January,
1915, by, T. Baxter White, first
superintendent of the Union Sun
day school, to Miss Clare W.
"1 thank you for birthday wishes,
which were sent from dear old
Highlands. Strange to say my near
est and dearest associations about
Highlands cluster around that dear
old Presbyterian church that stands
out clearly when Highlands comes
. "Today rain is falling copiously
and I am reminded of how, many
a time, some youth would come to
my door of an evening when the
rain was falling and say, 'Mr.
White, will there be any prayer
meeting tonight', or 'Mr. White,
will there be Christian Endeavor
tonight.' Then I would feel that
I must go over and ring the bell.
I was always glad when the time
came for your family to return to
Highlands, and was always glad to
greet you among them. ..."
The Presbyterian church today
has a growing membership, a splen
did Sunday school and Christian
Endeavor Society, and enjoys a
pipe organ, the gift of the Ralph
Hodgson family of Athens, Ga.
