Heritage Preserved CAPE HATTERAS, N.C. (AP)— The succcessful efforts of high school pupils in Rabun Gap, Ga., to preserve in print their mountain heritage has inspired similar projects in the nation. Two are on remote islands off the Carolinas, at the Cape Hatteras School on the North Carolina Outer Banks, and among black teen-agers on the Sea Islands off the South Carolina coast. Pupils in the 10th and llth grades at Cape Hatteras have begun interviewing old timers on boat building and net mending. They also are getting them to recall the tropical storms which have swept across the banks. The interviews will appear in the first issue of a yet-unnamed magazine this spring. It will sell for $2 a copy. The magazine Foxfire issued by the Rabun Gap pupils has become nationally known.
