Miss Kathaleen Farnsworth,
music teacher in the local
school, visited the Boys' Li-
brary Club on April 23, having
charge of the club activities for
the afternoon.
Miss Farnsworth's program
for the boys centered around a
number of recordings featuring
"Peter and the Wolf," "The
Nutcracker Suite," and "The
Sorcerer's Apprentice." She
also talked with the boys, dis-
cussing the stories recorded, the
instruments used to represent
various animals, and the de-
scriptive nature of the music.
The librarian states that this
program of recording arrang-
ed and presented by Miss
Farnsworth was enthusiastical-
ly received by the boys, and
that it was not only a period of
entertainment, but that it was
also one of music appreciation.
It was very kind of Miss Farns-
worth to devote one of her af-
ternoons to the Boys' Library
Club, and we greatly appreciate
her doing so.
At the end of the club period,
Pepsi-Colas, furnished by the
Slater Community Association,
were served.
Club members present on
this occasion were: Sammy
Johnson, Jimmy Davis, Walter
Anderson, Tommy Cole, Bobby

Girl Scouters
Enjoy Outing
On Wednesday, April 9, 1947,
the Senior Girl Scout Troop of
Slater went on a hike and cook-
out for their regular weekly
The girls met at Slater Hall
before leaving for the hike. One
group of girls went ahead of
the others and laid the trail.
The second group followed the
trail to see where they would
have their cook-out. They hiked
to the railroad trestle and had
the cook-out under the trestle.
The troop was divided into
the following committees: The
shopping committee, composed of
those who got the wood and
built the fire; the food commit-
tee prepared the food; and the
clean-up committee cleaned up
after the meeting was over.
The girls had roasted pota-
toes, wieners, tomatoes, lettuce,
rolls, and drinks for their din-
ner. They all enjoyed laying
and following the trail and the
cook-out very much.
When the cook-out was over,
they discussed taking a trip to
Table Rock the week - end of
April 25. The troop will rent
a cabin and each girl is looking
forward to the trip.
The girls enjoying this out-
ing were: Marion Brown, Mary
Dodson, Josephine Knight,
Frances Poole, Clara Ramsey,
Madge Robinson, Patricia Sum-
mey, and the leaders, Mrs.
Buchanan and Miss Loftis.

"Tuneful Tales." This program
featured a very appropriate
number called "The White
Easter Rabbit," which, of
course, proved to be the chil-
dren's favorite.
According to the story, Little
White Rabbit wanted to be an
Easter Bunny, but everyone
was too busy to tell him how
to become an Easter Rabbit.
That is, everyone except Moth-
er Birth--she told him what to
do, and he did it. To the chil-
dren's delight, Little White
Rabbit did become an Easter
Those assisting with the Egg
Hunt were: Mesdames Mary
Ledford, Minnie Pitman, J. B.
Wilson, W. F. Horton, and C.
