The following is an impression of
the recent Berea Chautauqua, held
in Bonanza, and is wrifen by or.e
of Bonanza's citizens who was ac
tive in helping to make the Chautau
qua there a success:
The Berea College Three-Day Ex
tension Chautauqua, held at Bonanza,
Ky Sept. 2, 3, and 4th, was the
crowning glory of the summer for the
people living in her vicinity.
The first delegation of speakers
Professor Elam representing the De
partment of Agriculture, Professor
E. L. Dix, teacher of Social Science,
Miss Helen Kersey, Recreational In
structor, and Mr. Mercerau, repre
senting the American Red Cross
arrived Friday morning, Sept. 2,
being conveyed by wagon from the
The first program was rendered
Friday, 2:30 p. m by Mr. Elam ad
dressing the farmers and farmers'
wives on the subject of "Agricul.
ture," his topic being on the forma
tion of the earth, down to the time
of scientific farming, while Miss
Kersey was amusing the children
with new recreational games and ex
ercises. Friday night, 7:30, the meeting
was opened with the singing of pa
triotie songs, and music on the
mandolin by Mr. Mercereau. Mr.
Mercereau (rave a talk explaining how
the ex-soldier might obtain help thru
the American Red Cross, and its af
ter-war program. Sliss Kersey gave
reading, after which Professor
Dix gave a lecture on the topic of
"Health, Happiness and Horse Sense,"
which was very enlightening.
The former Ferea students of Bon
anza, in their endeavor to entertain
the Berears, decided to take them on
hike to or.e of the highest pinnacles
In this part of the mountains Sat
urday mornin?, Sept. 3. after awak
ening from th slumbers of the past
night, and partaking of sumptuous
breakfast, tho bard of twenty-five
hikers assembled at the starting
point, then proceeded on their way to
the mountain peak. After climbing
over rocks and going thru jungles,
the summit was at lat naihed, froi.i
which the eye could see f.-r twenty
five or fifty miles in any direction.
Many snapshots were taken of those
wonderful scenes, which are equal to
many around Berea and elsewhere.
The sightseers decended the moun
tain at,d returned to the village in
time to partake of the noonday meal,
prepared by the hospitable citizens.
Saturday afternoon, 2:30, a eont-n-nation
of the Chautauqua program
was a lecture by Professor Flam on
another phase of agriculture, the Im
portance of legumes, preserving soil
fertility, and he also demonstrated
vise the games and play filled the
afternoon with joy and pleasure for
At 7:00 o'clock, Saturday evening,
a very interesting program was ten
dored Community singing, Instru
mental music, and songs by the'
quartet. Miss Kersey gave another
very Interesting story. Professor
Baird, Chairman of the Agricultural
Department, gave lecture on the
topic of "Enriching Country Life,"
and a solution for the problem of
"How You Gon'na Keep the Young
Men and Women of the Country on
the Farm.'' As Mr. Baird is a very
interesting personage, his address
was also very interesting.
The next and last speaker of the
Chautauqua to arrive was H. E. Tay
lor, Business Manager of Berea Col
lege. He was to arrive, according to
pre-arrangement, on Sunday morning,
Sept. 4. But those young men at
Bonanza, Marvin Fairchild, Arthur
Baldridge, and Glenn Hatcher, who
knew Mr. Taylor, were so anxious to
have him come to their little town
that they rode seven nvles to the
railway station, taking an extra
horse for him to ride. When the
7:45 o'clock p. m. train rolled in to
the Prcstrnsburg depot, they met Mr
Taylor nd started for the village in
the vail ;v. A the roajs were ery
uneven, the y.u-r.ey lated for two
and one half hours. Nevertheless,
Mr. Taylor" greatly enjoyed the
beauty and pleasure of the moon
light ride over the hill and up the
valley. The destination was reached
about 10 o'clock. After enjoying
games, music, and a real good time,
the hour soon came to go into repose
for the night.
Sunday morning, Sept. 4, 10:30
o'clock, Mr. Taylor, after being In
troduced to the audience by Glenn
Hatcher, a former Berea student, de
livered a sermon on "Service, or
What a Person Can Do to Help Hi
Fellow-Man." His talk wns so plain
and interesting that all present un
derstood, and were helped by it
Sunday afternoon, 2:30 o'clock.
Miss Kersey had the last part of
her program. By the assistance of
some of the rural school teachers she
entertained both young and old with
a bountiful supply of games and ex
ercises. Men and wnmon who, it
seemed, had passed the stage of
taking pleasure, and enjoying them
selves, were lured into the exercise
and wiere made to feel their youth
again. Even the old men entered
foot races with the young ones, but
tho their fleetness had gone with
years and time, they were happy to
be like boys again. Everybody was
overjoyed with the happenings of the
afternoon and decided that human be
ings should not grow old too rapidly.
Sunday evening, 7:00 o'clock, the
last meeting of the Chautauqua con
vened. Mr. Taylor afforded plenty of
music on the organ; other delightful
music was supplied by a vocal soloist,
and the Hallelujah Chorus, which
was particularly enjoyed,- A story
was acted out on the stage by a
number of small girls, whom Miss
Kersey had tutored. Then Mr. Tay
lor gave his last address, his topic
being "Blindness." This address was
made up mainly of his own business
experiences and other experiences
combined. His lecture showed the
people that they were actually blind
to many of the common things of
life; that they should be wide-awake
and note the little things of life. He
told the boys and girls, young men
and women, o early discover what
they were talented for. His simple
illustrations and plain and simple
speech made his lecture interesting
and enlightening to all assembled.
After the conclusion of the program.
the Chairman of , the Chautauqua
gave a short talk, summarizing the
proceedings of the Chautauqua from
the beginning to the close, and tell
ing the citizens how the Chautauqua
came to be held at Bonanza.
He closed wrh voicing the senti
ments of the people of the whole
community in sincerely thanking
the members of the Chautauqua
fr their inspiring lectures and exer
cises, and the pleasure of having the
opportunity i f associating mith them
during these three days. Then Miss
Kersey rose and expressed her ap
preciation of the hospitality shown
them, aid the good time they had
had at Bonanza. Mr. Taylor closed
the meeting by similar expressions.
By this Chautauqua coming to Bon
ar.za it has helped the people in gen
eral along mojt of the lines of coun.
try life. It has inspired mary a
young man and woman to strive on
and become a bigger man or woman.'1
The people realize more fully the
va'ue of education than they did
prior. They are looking funrard toj
the time when another chautauqua
from Berea will come. Now mayi
this great institution, builded for then
mountain people, take the youth I
thereof and mold them into men and
women of whom the world may be
proud, and may all the steps taken
in education be steps taken for the
promotion of the cause of Christ.
