T wenty-five yea rs ago there was no though t of a Pen land School of H a ndicrafts - only a group of neighbors reviving a nd p erpetua ting the age-old a rt of weavi ng which, a t th a t time, had been all but lo t in this great mechanized country of ours. America h ad begun to rea lize th a t although the push buttons were valua ble and were h ere to stay, with their coming we h ad lost something which was also valuabl e in the simple h om ey occupa tions tha t h ad kept us in touch with gra s roots, with h om e, with the fireside a nd wi th much that m akes life meaningful.

THE ANCHOR related crafts, one may learn some three score of crafts requiring little equipment. Among them is chair seating, silk screen printing, and other methods of textil e decora tion , leather work, etc. The photography course given for the first time in O ctober, 1952, was popular and although it i not considered a craft, the cour e has added much interes t and will probabl y be an annual event at Penl and . J oe Cla rk was not able to conduct the course thi s time, but it was handl ed effi ciently and happil y by Penl and's own photographers, H arvey Chase and Barney M archialette, and Bra nk Purrington of Chicago, M ax Tha rpe of Statesville, and experts in various fi elds of photography. Those photographers were o enthusiastic about the beauties abounding in this section th at they begged to return for a course during the rhodod endron season. Although that is a time w hen the school is likely to be crowded, the John and Louise Morgan home is being reserved for them, and even if they have to roll up in blankets, they plan to be at Penland June 14 to 26, as well a O ctober 11 to 23. Penla nd made its second craft tour to th e Scandinavian countries a nd Finland during April and May, 1953, and had an e pecia lly interesting and enriching experience due to the fact tha t t here were friends and form er students of Penl and almost everywh ere they went. These frie nds pl anned itinerarie , were interp reter and guide , en tertained 1 members of the group in their hom es, and m ad e the trip a memonable one for each member of the party. The Penland School ha gained mu ch as a re ult of t he trip, an d will continue to do so, for contacts h ave already brought outstanding craftsmen from those countri es to Penland, and will bring oth ers next summ er. As the group saw the be t of th e craft schools of the countries visited, information wa glea ned and friendships made that facilitated the plans of Irene Beaudin and M ary Virginia Munford who left in October to study in those schools for ix months. This was a specia l and graciou arrangement for the Penland teachers, for the courses in tho e

schoo ls a rc ordinari ly four or fiv year courses. Sine th se P nla nd t ach ers are already raft m n of a bility, they ar a ll owed to go into th school s and g t special training in the special techniques whi h they wish to bring back to Penl and . Some interesting foreign stud nts hav b n sca ttered through th y a r. In J anu ary th r was Mr. S. K . Bhanj a of Calcutta, Ind ia, who came under the Point IV Program and who is head of a craft school which was a pa rt of the University found d by R abindra neth T agore. Mr. Bhanja was intensely interested in the Penl an d School and in the cra fts being taught, and when he went back to W ashington, he urged officials of th e TC Point IV Program to promote an I nt rnationa! A socia tion of Craft Educator uggesting that it begin with an exchange of tea hers between his school in Indi a, and the Penl and School of H andicrafts. Later there was Mr. Sa nt P ra ad of Bihar, Indi a, who worked in M ahatma Ghandi's program and i continuing th at work. H e brought with him his portable spinning wheel and taugh t everal people of the Penl and School how to use it. H e stayed two months, worked in most of the crafts taught at Penland a nd i now u ing that experi ence in his own 路school. His philo ophy and his discussions were a rare treat to the peopl e of the school. During the um mer there wa adette \t\lissa from Al exa ndria, Egypt-a new nation to be represented at Penl and . She wa exceedingly charming and is awaiting a visit from a form er Penl and teach r, tfr . ~tf ar 路 Sternberg, who is making an extended trip around the worl d in 1954, and her itincra t includes Alexandri a, Egypt. In August a Penla nd Student wa Mi I smene R egopoulou of Athen , Greece- another new country to be repre ented at Penland . Mi s R egopoulou work with underprivil eo-ed children and refugee and doe general social work which i financed b the Queen's Funds. Mi R egopoulou heard while at Penl and that the Qu een of Gre ce wa to visit Ameri a and was po iti e in her own m ind tha t if the Qu en knew ab u t Pen-



land and the things being taught there, and being practiced in the neighborhood, she would surely come to Penland if invited. Those at Penland couldn't think a Queen would actually make a trip to little Penland but at least they had the fun of writing to their good friend, Senator Hoey, who gave them all the necessary information a to how to invite a Queen, and they did receive a very gracious letter from the Greek Ambassador, Mr. Athanase G. Politis, regretting that the Queen's itinerary did not include a visit to North Carolina. In late August and early September, Mis Cis Fink, whom the Penland party had met in Denmark, came to Penland for three weeks. Miss Fink is a designer and weaver of special costumes, and members of the staff at Penland had an opportunity to weave under her special instruction. Lily Mills cooperated by providing special yams for this purpose, and an article, and pictures of the costumes, will appear later in the Lily Mills publication, "Practical Weaving Suggestions." Another craftsman of note who entertained the Penland Party in Finland arrived early in September for a stay of two months and is to return to Penland for May, June, July, and August, 1954. Hand weavers will know her from an article written by Dorothy Liesbes in "Craft Horizons" for October, 1952. She is an artist and craftsman, and weave special tapestries in her own original technique. She plans to weave a large tapestry for Penland, especially designed by her, during the month of May. She says the p lanning for this will take time and thought, for she wants it to express Penland and its meaning. She will work out this design during the winter. Then she plans to complete the tape try by the end of May and be ready for teaching dur~ng June, July, and August. Miss Bidya V. Bhandari who came to this country on a United Nations Fellowship, from Simla, Punjab, India, wa a student at Penland for three weeks in November and found so much that she could use being taught in the Penland School, and pra ticed in th community, th a t sh i trying to ar-

range to have her stay in America extended enough to enable her to spend ix months at Penland. 路 Miss Bhandari is Pmncipal of a Governm ent Girl High School at Lakor Bazar at Simla in the Punj a b. H er wish in coming to this country was to study community organization in order to train women leaders for work in their village , to study handicrafts, and to observe the social aspects of such work in rural communitie . The School of Handicraft i busily making plans for its 25th Anniversary. Irene Beaudin and Mary Virginia Munford will bring home special ideas as a result of their studie in Europe. There will be special teachers from afar with their special offerings. A very special Scandinavian loom for weaving intricate damasks h4 been given to the school, and the generous donor, Mr. Edward T aggart, of Indianapolis, will bring it to Penland, set it up with the aid of the teachers of weaving a t Penland, and teach those teachers how to use it. During the summer there will be a special weaver from Stockholm in charge of teaching that special technique. This will be Miss Inga Werther whom the Penland group met during thei r craft tour in Sweden, and who had woven what seemed to them the most beautiful damask they saw on their entire trip. The growth of the Penland School of Handicrafts h as been an inspiration to those who have watched it develop from nothing to its present proportions. ' When we look black over the last thirty years of accomplishment made by the Penland community weaver and the Penland School of Handicraft , it brings us to the realization that America is not entirely mechanized, and that even in thirty ears there ha been a tremendous increa e in interest in h and work. We would not want to give up all we can get by pushino- button but we are showing by uch thina a the growth of the Penland School of Handicraft tha t we do not want to lo e the jo of doinothings our lves f reatina with our ' n hand and mind a nd of helpin other pe pie to know that jo .

board, Panhellenic House A sociation, Inc., h as announced the first a nnu a l di vidend paid to preferred stockholde rs since Beekma n Tower Hotel was opened in 1928. Dividend paid $3 per share, or 6 per cent on $50 par non-cumul ative preferred stock. The Beekma n Tower Hotel, originally known as Pa nhellenic House, was built in 1928 by the National Panhellenic Sororities to provide a N ew York headquarters for sorority women and their friends. In 1934, a t the. h eight of the depression, it beoame necessary to open the hotel to the general public. Because of its location on New York's fashiona ble East Side Beekman Hill , the name was changed to Beekman Tower. However, one representative from each of the national Greekletter sororities hold ing stock in the hotel is a member of the board of directors. At the recent board m eeting, Mrs. H epburn complimented the Beekma n Tower's Managing Director, Mis Florence K eena n, for guiding the hotel through a m ajor de pression keeping both origina l ownership and the inves tment of original stockholders intact.

Parti ular emphasis ha been pi a ed on small er meetings, ba nque ts a nd conventions. Since Bee km a n T ower is the only major hotel in close proximity to the rna sive United Nation Building, it is the logical headquarters not only for foreign delegate but for ma ny of the organ izations a nd as ociation requiring frequent contact with offi ces of the United N ations.

who spent their lives pioneering in these Kentucky mountains. The middle years saw the School growing in unique ways to meet new needs. The present and the future were in our minds, too. Cooperation with the Harlan County Board of Education now brings 197 children in buses to crowd our classrooms and the dining room at L aurel House. E ager children await the opening of the Library so tha t they may borrow from the fine collection of modern children's books or gather for storytelling. Thus we touch almost every home in this newly-consolidated school district. Coopera tion brings your help, too, that Pine Mountain may m aintain its communitywide school and m edical services. These depend upon the assistance of friends beyond the mountain. The Pine Mountain Hospital, fittingly dedicated to the memory of William and Sally Creech, makes m edical care available to many who otherwise find it difficult to secure.

;\; SuNDAY, December 13, was for us a day of real importance. I wish that you might share with us the Nativity Play which the school children presented in our beautiful Chapel. For almost forty years, Pine Mountain students have begun the Christmas season with this play. It is wonderful for them to have their lives enriched by their participation in this joyous, yet deeply moving experience. In October we celebrated the School's forti eth anniversary. Friends and neighbors, former staff members and students, gathered here for a memorial program. The past was brought back vividly by Henry Creech who told how his father, William Creech, Sr., gave the land to start the School in his valley. His interest in the new School was so great that the customers at his little store often had to wait while he went to see how the S~hool was progressing. Co-workers of the founders reminded us of the courage, resourcefulness, and compassion of Katherine Pettit and Ethel deLong
