A very interesting meeting waa
held in the aouth dining-room of the
Boarding Hall on Saturday, Decem

charge of College forest lands, includ

their wives, were invited to luncheon
to talk over plan for Improvement
thia coming year. President Hutch
Ina, Osborne, Taylor, Baird, Clark,
Monier, and Fielder were also pres
After a bounteous dinner, Mr.
Chesnut introduced President Hutch
Ina, who impressed very strongly up
on all that they were a part of a
big important organization, and that
if they ahould fail in their responsi
bility, that this piece of work would
go undone. Mr. Taylor made an ap
peal that the men give greater con
sideration and thought to the comfort
of the wivea, who after all, make the

various out-buildings from the house.
good woodpile, and general upkeep
of premises. Mr. Baird, Mr. Osborne,
Mr. Monier, Mrs. Chesnut, and Mrs.
Osborne made brief statements.
A league was formed, at the sug
gestion of Mr. Chesnut, and prizes
were offered for several points of
improvement during the coming year.
Regular attendance of children to
achool, improvement around home
buildings, etc.
Those present were John Kindred,
Carloa McHone, G. Shearer, Mr. and
Mrs. J. R. McQueen, Jesae Pigg, Mr.
and Mrs. Frank Burnell, George
Bratcher, J. A. Anderson, James
Barrett, T. Leear, and Mr. and Mrs.
Richard Burnell.
The meeting waa one of good cheer,
enthusiasm and ambition as "becom
eth" the New Year season.
Secretary Vaughn of the College
has recently made a visit to Herlan
county, where a number of Be "a
itudents are 4Vr.g notable work aa
teachers. The occasion of the visit
eras to attend the Christmas exer
cises of the White Star Graded
School, of which Edward K. Cook,
formerly of Berea College, la princi
pal. The entertainment attracted
quite a liat of outside guests and
Mr. Cook has always shown the
ability to do unusual and unique
things In communities where ha work

Superintendent to Harlan county thia I
past Christmas, but a lata train
schedule made connection Impossible
and he received a telegram from
Superintendent Colvin expressing hia
regret at not being able to attend the
White Star celebration.
The speakers scheduled for the
program were State Superintendent
Colvin, County Superintendent A. C.
Jones, F, H. Howard, County Board
Chairman, Dr. Roberta of the Metho
dist Church of Harlan, and Secretary
Vaughn of Berea College. An impor
tant feature of the program waa
the reproduction of the constitutional
convention of 1770. Clyde Lewis,
Lawrence Gabbard, Miss Mary Har
din, Mr. and Mrs. Delbert Cook, all
former Berea students now teaching
in neighboring schools in Harlan
county, took part in the exercise.
Eastern Kentucky will profit if many
more Gabbarda, Lewises, and Cook
will go back to the hills and teach.
The work described in the follow
ing article, taken from a Middletown,
(O.,) paper, is carried on under the
Extension Department of Berea Col
lege. Mr. and Mrs. Meredith Gab
bard are both former atudenta of Be
rea College and have been connected
with the institution for a long time.
Mrs. Gabbard is the daughter of Mrs.
L. K. Flannery of Blue Lick.
If Priscilla of "The Courtship of
Miles Standish" fame could step from
the pages of one of Longfellow's
most favorite stories and take a
glimpse at close range of the display
of Fireside Industries' work at the
Armco Lincoln Club, she would be
happy to note that the industry for
which she has been heralded aa the
sreatest artist, has not been discarded
but is being revived thru the efforts
of Mrs. Meredith Gabbard. The
Fireside Industries opened this after
noon and will continue this evening
and Friday afternoon and evening for
public inspection. An appreciation
ef home spun work and hand weav
ing is being shown more every day
and altho there are a comparative
few to whom thia exceptional art be
longs, the demand for such work is
becoming greater. In the Immense
display the public will see the ulti
mate of weaving accomplishment.
One of the pleasing features is that
anything in thia line will be found
and the privilege will be extended
anyone to make a selection for pur
chase at a- much lower price than
these prized works would be -valued
in many places. The opening occurs
at an especially opportune time, aince
the Christmas shopper will find nu
merous suggestions in the wide and
varied assortment.
"Murmuring pines" and cedars add
the desired touch to the display to
make it realistic and suggestive of
the season and does much to accen
tuate beauty of the articles that fill
the walla and tables of the enclosed
porch at the Gabbard home. The en
tire exhibit, with the exception of
pattern weaving, is the work of the
Appalachian mothers, residing in this
city, during the summer course con
ducted by Mrs. Gabbard In regular

members and would have been start

is partially for the purpose of secur

Plain weaving, at which a great

The Academy
The members of the Academy Fac
ulty have had a very pleaaant time
during the Christmas vacation. The
lucky ones could go away and the
others had to stay right here, but I
am sure both sides had a very agree
able holiday. Dean Matheny and
family spent their Christmas in Be
rea. That needa no proof; and one
could see the Dean and Mrs. Matheny
on the campus at certain hours of
the day. Among those who shared
the Dean's fate were the Pecks (they
say they were here; no one aaw
them)e and Miss Rutledge, who had
a very "active" vacation. Professor
Ambrose spent a few days with his
friend somewhere, it is no body's
business to know, and Professor Kal
fayan had a very hard time to keep
away homesickness and had his first
lessons in horseback riding. Among
the happier class of our faculty let's
mention the Shutts, who had a good
time in Canton, Ohio, that Professor
Shutt ia going to move the first fac
ulty meeting to have 25 days for
Christmas vacation net year. Miss
H. Strong was away in New Jersey,
thia particular state ia very far from
Berea; that is all that we know about
Miss Strong's pastime. Miaa Secor
waa in Wisconsin spending her vaca
tion with her uncle. Miaa Johns was
so enthusiastic about her vacation
she wrote her colaborer in Berea to
spend hia next vacation in Welling
ton, Ohio, and "sew, cook, entertain,
etc." Last of all, but not least of all,
our popular Professor vonHorn came
back from Cincinnati, Ohio with the
broadest of smiles and the bulkiest
of packages. We have every reason
to believe that ho will surely go back
to Cincinnati next year again. Mrs.
Bar waa there, too; a friend of ours
wrote he saw 'em in the Zoo together.
Of course we would hate to gossip,
