Tabor Girl Finishes New York, School; Tells About Experience Miss Jaye Moore· Soles, pict ured above, has returned home after spending three months in ] New York City where she at- > tended the Barbizon School if Modeling. Jaye Moore is the 19-year-old daughter of Mr.; and Mrs. J. M. Soles. Jr., ol Tabor City. She is a 1900 grad uate of Tabor City High School. She attended East Carolina College and Wilmington Col lege. "I went to New York by bus," Jaye Moore declares. "1 wasn't scared until I got oul of state and began to feel that I was completely alone. Then, seeing all those strange faces at the bus stations made mc feel that I was absolutely in another world. I was so happy when I arrived in New York. The first thing I did was call the director of the Barbizon and, of course, she helped mi get settled. This made me feel much better." "I liked the Kesidence Club where 1 stayed during my stay. It was located between Hunt er College and Central Park. Now, some people think that if a person takes a course in modeling, they are conceited but that isn't it at all! I took the course mainly in order to get to see New York and 1 really wanted to improve my self. What I learned about modeling will undoubtedly help me in my daily living, j The trip and the places 1 visit ed were enough reason for go ing." Classes Becan "My classes began on April ι 8th. 1 never thought there j could be so much to learn a bout one specific type of work. I had classes in diction, photo graphy work, store and show room modeling, make-up. voice control, and other basic things such as exercises — EVERY DAY! I was completely ex- i hausted after a day's work. Until I went there. I was per fectly happy just to be "me." But, after a few days at the school I learned how much room there was for self-im provement." "After two weeks In New York. I got a job as reception ist for a brokerage firm (Gen eral Economics Corporation) on Madison Avenue. At this I time, the school re-arranged | my classes at night which made the pace rather furious. I worked from 9 a. m. until 5 p. m. and then attended two hours of school from 7 p. m. til 9 p. m. 1 was always Riad to see 9 o'clock come so that I could lie down. Actually, if I had my way. I would go right back to New York . . . soon. And, you know, I may do that!" New Yorkers "The most exciting part of mv stay in the "Big City" was the sightseeing trips, and I didn't miss much because this was a new experience for me and 1 wanted to see and learn ι everything. I think that 1 was 1 mentally planning my next trip i to New York even while 1 was staying there." "I found th-.it New Yorkers j were unfriendly. No. 1 take j that back—they wire just in- j rtiti'irent. Tiiere seemed to be the attitude that everyone didn't care about anyone else. | People wire it.ncerned with their own pursuits. In this re spect. I like Tabor City. Here. , everyone's business is known 1 by everyone else. Now. please | don't net the impression that 1 trying to be sarcastic. It is GOOD when others are con cerned about their neighbors. I missed the closeness of our town. You know. New York is an exciting place to VISIT, but ι Tabor City is a pleasant place in which to LIVE. You know j what 1 mean!" This reporter then asked , Miss Soles to tell about some I of the most impressive things about New York, some out standing places. "Oh. I visited the Peppermint Lounge, among other places. The "Home of the Twist" was just a hole in the wall with railings around the dance floor. Peop1'· would even twist on th« rails. I thought to myself t' at some of those crazy people were going to kill themselves! I laughed at those wild dancers. I like to twist, but some of those people were carrying it to the ex treme. Like man, it was un bearable! !" Southern Belle "I was unaware of any ac cent in my voice until I went to Ν. Y. Then at the firm where I worked, the employees began calling me "Southern Belle." They also called mc "Jaye Jayc." To try to get rid of my voice accent, I imitated the way "Them Yankees spoke," (Continued On Page β) "We anticipate sales will get arger ..iid larger in the near utur··" ΛΙ Whitehead, sales ,U|>ervis«ir "I the Tabor City I'obacco Market, said. "There have been ιιυ block salts as yet, and we advise I.ιnners to get their crop on the warehouse floor as early as possible ill order to avoid a aloek sale," Whitehead said.
