Hollywood Miniature 'Sets'
This was not photographed In the wilderness but on a table top In the
home of an amateur photographer. The "lake" Is a mirror.
AS ALMOST every motion pic
ture goer knows, the Hollywood
studios are continually fooling us
these days with scenes photo
graphed in miniature, such as a vil
lage street, a castle in Spain, a
rural winter snow scene, a ship at
sea, an airplane wreck and what not
else. So cleverly are these miniature
"sets" designed and photographed
that in the picture their lack ol re
ality defies detection, and when we
are let In on the secret, we do not

Have you ever tried creating
miniature scenes yourself and
photographing them with your
own camera? It's tun. Depending
upon your skill, artistic ability and
the materials you employ, you may
construct and photograph miniature
sets in your own home that will
rival the semblance of reality
achieved in Hollywood; or, if you
prefer, you may create scenes of
fantasy, comedy or burlesque to
compare with a "shot" in an animat
For a "still" camera, this is really
nothing else than table-top photog
raphy, such as has long been prac
ticed by amateurs, but which now
is photographically much easier for
the amateur than it used to be, be
cause of the recent introduction for
home use of more powerful artificial
lighting. At least for table-top pho
tography you can very cheaply with
two or three of these brighter home
flood light bulbs rival the lighting
equipment of Hollywood studios,
and, what is more, do good work
with an inexpensive fixed-focus cam
era, provided you use a portrait at
tachment to secure the necessary

Constructing one of these sets re
quires, of course, a certain amount
of time and patience, with the ex
pense depending upon the materials
you put into it. Very amusing
scenes may be created, however,
without introducing elaborate de
tails. Here are a few suggestions
for the materials:
White or light gray cardboard
makes "sky"; a mirror makes a
lake; twigs and small plants make
trees and hedges; moss serves for
grass; chalk, salt or flour for snow;
toy automobiles, trains, boats, air
planes, houses, human and animal
figures may be obtained at the flve-and-dlme
store. If you are handy
with tools, you can fashion various
"props" yourself, using soft wood,
or you can use plastic modeling
A few points relative to the pho
tography: Working at close range, the depth
of field of the lens Is not likely to
be great, so, in building your set,
keep the elements within as short a
distance, front to back, as possible.
You get the best effects by using
the lens at a small opening. Better
make about three "shots" of a set
ting, varying the exposure time, to
be sure of obtaining a perfect nega
tive. Focus exactly.
You will have a lot of fun play
ing with the light. Sometimes a
single strong flood light will give
you what you want. Again, you may
want one figure to stand out bril
liantly with everything else sub
dued. For this a large piece of card
board with a hole in it will provide
a spotlight Panchromatic film gives
the test rendering.

Home Agent Submits
Two Timely Recipes
Many Perquimans women have ex
pressed a desire for recipes for Three
Fruit Marmalade and for Duchess
Salad, according to Miss Gladys Ham
rick, home demonstration agent, who
says there is nothing in the way of
"sweetning" that can be up at this
time is enjoyed in winter more than
the simple winter time marmalade.
Use one orange, one lemon and
one grapefruit, chopping all up to
gether, both the fruit and the rind.
The fruit must be cut very, very
fine but not ground. Measure, then
add 3 cups of water for each cup of
chopped fruit and rind, and allow
mixture to stand overnight.
Next morning boil the water and
fruit until the bits of rind are ten
der, about 20 or 30 minutes. Cool
and measure, adding cup for cup of
sugar. Dissolve thoroughly and al
low to stand again overnight. Next
moring allow the mixture to boil un
til it reaches the jellying point, when
the juice will hang in two drops from
the spoon. Pour into sterilized glass
es and seal.
One orange, one grapefruit and one
lemon call for about 10 cups of su
gar and will make 10 glasses or 5
pints of marmalade.
This is delicious as a sweet sand
wich for lunch, or on toast for break
fast. Duchess Salad
This is delicious either as a relish
or as a sandwich spread.
1 quart sweet peppers, red and
1 quart cabbage.
1 quart onions.
1 quart cucumber pickles.
4 medium sliced pods of hot pep
per. 1-2 cup salt.
Grind, the sweet peppers, cabbages,
onions and pickles and boil for 30
minutes, stirring to prevent burning.
While this is cooking prepare the fol
1 1-2 cups flour, sifted before mea
suring. 3 cups sugar.
2 tablespoonsful dry mustard.
2 quarts vinegar.
Mix dry ingredients, add the vine
gar and cook until it thickens. Mix
with vegetables. Put into sterilized
jars and process 15 minutes.

veteran fair operator from Shelby,
"but the thousands of people who at
tend our modern fairs also want to
be amused and diverted. With these
parallel ideas in mind, we are ex
erting every effort to give pleasure
loving North Carolinians the best
bargain,! they ever had in fair enter
tainment." To emphasize the agricultural angle
of the exposition, Manager Dorton
has announced that $14,000 in pre
miums would be awarded North Car
olinians with successful exhibit at the
fair. This figure represents an in
crease of over 10 per cent above last
year's total awards.
