History Comes Alive
History comes to life at the
Schiele Musuem Pioneer Farm
on Sun., Apr. 29, from 2-5 p.m.
The very essence of a long-ago
springtime will pervade the day’s
activities. The sheep will be
sheared, and visitors will meet
Harriett’s new lamb. Old split
oak baskets will be mended and
new berry buckets will be
fashioned from poplar bark.
Visitors may join in the chores
such as planting the flax, cotton,
sorghum and broom corn in the
_ plot down by the bar. The less in-
dustrious folk may wish to join
the children who sneak away
from the work with a favorite
toy or to play a game of
draughts. Authentic seasonal
foods will be prepared on the

open hearth from 18th century
recipes. You'll find that spring
cleaning was much simpler in
early Carolina...a simple airing
of the bedding in the bright spr-
ing sunshine and a thorough
sweeping and dusting. Early
Carolinians were not known for
their tidiness and cleanliness.
As always, the Schiele Living
History folk will recreate a lively
and different day in the life of
the Carolina pioneer. Site
visitors will enjoy seeing some
recently acquired furnishings in
the log homestead. The results of
the winter’s research project will
be apparent in the fresh and in-
teresting facts presented by the
Schiele backcountry pioneers.

Anti-Drug
Campaign
Underway
Pharmacists Against Drug
Abuse(PADA), an anti-drug
abuse public information cam-
paign designed to help educate
prents on the health dangers of
the abuse of drugs by children,
was recently launched nation-
wide. Harper's Prescription
Pharmacy, 709 W. Mountain
St., is a particularly. strong pro-
and will serve as a key communi-
ty resource for information on
drugs in drug abuse.
Sponsored by the Pharmacists
Against Drug Abuse Founda-
tion, created by McNeil Phar-
maceutical and the Johnson and
Johnson Family of Companies,
PADA focuses on alcohol and
marijuana which, according to
pharmacists Ragan Harper and
Kay Patterson,” are the two
drugs young people are most
likely to use in entering the drug
scene.” The campaign also
focuses on cocaine the fastest
growing drug of abuse in
America. Added Harper,‘
Parents and children need to
know that using these drugs is
harmful-that’s why we’re active-
tled, The Kinds of Drugs Kids
re Getting Into.”
distributing a free brochure
The PADA Foundation
developed the program because
pharmacists, by academic train-
ing and professional experience,
are experts on drugs and a good
source of information on drug
abuse. For a free brochure or

Pharmacy at 707 West Moun-
