'Guadalupe Holy Week' Begins in Mexico; Virginia Peak Scheduled as Tourist Site; Horseback Picnics Featured at Pinehurst On Tuesday in a chapel on the summit of Tepeyac, on the out skirts of Mexico City, thousands of pilgrims will mark the beginning of “Guadalupe Holy Week” through out all Mexico. The event symbolizes the miracle of December 12, 1531, in the manner universally known as the Advoca tion of Guadalupe. “Our Lady of Guadalupe,” tutelary saint of Mex ico, is now the patroness of all Latin America and the religious festivals will pay homage to the Indian virgin adopted as the spiritual symbol of the union of the Americas. In the beautiful Colonial churches throughout the republic, the holy week observance will differ as to localities. For the visitor, the occa sion will combine religious solem nity with holiday gayety and bring forth national ceremonies and an cient customs with the most gor geous of colorings. * * * * Atop Bull Mountain in Patrick County, Va., is Fairy Stone State Park of 5.000 acres picturesquely lo cated on the sloping foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Known as the “Tears of • the Fairies,” the park is one of the most remarkable of nature's oddi ties and is being scheduled by the Old Dominion State as a postwar tourist attraction, points out the American Express in its series of American Wonderlands. The park is named for the semi precious "fairy stones” which form in tiny natural stone crosses. Leg ends, which began with the earliest discoveries of the stones, say the curious rock-shaped crosses are the solidified “tears shed by the fairies” when an angel brought them word of the crucifixion. Throughout the park is a variety of almost perfectly shaped stone crosses in likeness of Roman, Mal tese and other cross styles. Pre dominant among the cross forma tions are the beautiful replicas of the famous St. Andrew's Cross, with I others showing an exact likeness! to the most ancient of Roman de signs Among the most sought-after; specimens are those shaped like the i Maltese Cross, the search inspired by the local legendary promises of perpetual good-luck stones. * * * * One-half mile east of Bardstown, Ky., is one of the most famous houses in America, now preserved by the State of Kentucky as “My Old Kentucky Home State park.” Here in 1852. Stephen Collins Foster wrote the immortal song, “My Old Kentucky Home.” In the restora tion project will be the Federal Hill, a State shrine home, with condi tions as existed in the year of 1852. The spacious and dignified house, the main exhibit of the park, is one of Georgian architecture and was built in 1795 by Judge John Rowan, a cousin of Foster. Within the orig inal house, which housed four gen erations of the Rowans, eight United States Presidents were enter tained. Louis Phillippe, “Duke of Orleans” and later King of France, spent many days of his long exile within its portals and Gen. Lafay ette was a frequent visitor. Among original furnishings is the drawing room, where the song was written and first sung, together with actual furniture and the Writing desk used by Foster. * * * * Here is what one of the cargo ves sels, built at the Canadian National Prince Rupert Drydock can carry on one trip in the various holds be tween decks and on deck: A total of 2,850 tons of food. Enough Gren gun carriers, trucks and motorcycles to equip a full in fantry battalion. A total of 2,150 tons of steel and other war materials in slabs and bars.
