an address, which was acceptable to
the congregation and delivered in an
impressive manner, containing much
interesting and valuable information
appropriate to the occasion. A brief
outline of his address is as follows:
After referring to the many scenes
and shrines of American patriotism
at Philadelphia and Valley Forge,
near that city, and a complimentary
reference to the work of the Daugh

PATRIOTIC PAGEANT AT LAKE
Lake Juanuska, X. C, July i,
(Sptcial.) The spiriit of '76 inter
pieted in the light of 1926, lived
again Saturday night, when students
of the Junaluska Summer School af
filiated with Duke Uniiversity staged)
a patriotiic pageant at Lake Juna
luska. Inauguarting the observance of the
Fourth of July, an enthusiastic au
dience filled the open air auditorium
when the pageant and a moving pic
ture, "Desert Gold," an entertain
ment feature furnished by the As
sembly management, composed the
program. Special music by the Ju
r.aluska Double Quartette was a fea
ture of the entertainment.

Prof. G. W. Harmon of Leigh Uni
versity, in a brief prolongue explain

portrayal were: Boston Tea Party;
News of War; Spirit of '76; Song of
Marion's Men; Continental Congress

or and atmosphere and furnished an
effective background for the more
martial scenes which came to a
climax when members of the Conti
nental Congress, asserting there
should be no more taxation without
representation, declared the colonies
independent of England and the ty
rannical reign of King George.
Those taking part in the episode
portraying the signing of the Dec
