WITH VERY BEST WISHES THE HOLIDAYS /- Cooks White Hempstead Greenery Can BeUsed Brighter Days Ahead for Indian Tribe Native Hempstead greenery may I Hock Hill, S. C. —AP —Bright decorate your mantel, your door, er^days arc ahead for a once-ppw erful, now almost defunct Indian tribe, the Catawbas. Tribe members arc moving from their wcath crbcaten huts on 600 acres of worn- out land along the banks of the Ca tawba river into brand new cot- grow in your neighborhood. [tagcs on 3,600 acres of fertile land If you want a small ornamental nc f r hore ' your table, or any other part of the house'during the Christmas season points out'Lorraine Blackwood, homo demonstration agent. Decide on the kind of evergreens to use according to any surpluses which Hobbs Gro. & Mkt. tree for table or mantel, and can not find one of suitable size or shape in your immediate community, then try building one to suit your taste, she suggests. For the base or foundation of the miniature tree, use an inverted cone made of chicken wire or hardware cloth. If you prefer a firmer base, choose a very large carrott or a parsnip. Slice off the top, then stand it on this flat base with the root end pointing skyward. You arc now ready to build the tree. Suitable materials are 4 to 6- linch branches from any suitable [evergreen. Surplus branches cut .from shrubbery in the yard lend themselves'nicely to this purpose. I You can decide the height of your jcone. length and density of the i branches to suit yourself. Just stick '[the ends of the branch into the lba.se. If you arc using a carrott or I parsnip for the base, you can do | this by piercing the vegetable cone !with an ice pick .or other sharp I point and then inserting branches. i If a wire cone is used, it should I first be packed with woodland moss jMiss Blackwood advises. Next, se I cure it to a firm base before build- jing the body. Transparent tape , may be used if you wish the tree to rest on a reflector mirror. Hard ware staples may be used to hold a wire cone upright on any board base. If root vegetables are used the weight will probably balance itself. If in doubt about the stability of the vegetable base, secure it to a board' 6 or more inch cs square. A nail driven upright through the center of the board will serve as a pin to stick into the base of the core and hold it secure. When the little tree has taken on the shape you desire you may decorate it as you wish. Spray it with silver paint or sprinkle with anv artificial snow preparation. To preserve the freshness of the tree the base may be set in a shal low tray of water. Moisture will travel through the moss or vegetable core and help to keep the im posed branches fresh, she explains. Salisbury and Reporter, Mrs. John Whatley. Several games were played and enjoyed by all. Prize for the month went to Mrs. John Whatley. Every member received a gift from the Christ mils tree. Two members of the club attended the Council Meeting on Tuesday, December 14 at the V.F.W. Hut. Ihe next meeting of the club will be at the home of Mrs. L. E. Salisbury. The change came with transfer of the Indians two years ago from state to federal government super vision. State supervision was a hangover from a peace treaty between the state and the tribe made almost 150 years ago. The Cataw ba nation lists 360 surviving mem bers who arc being moved as they apply for land in the new federal ly supervised are'- Fiftyscvcn of the tribe's 92 fam ilios have made application for tracts of land ranging from one to 50 acres, and others are planning to apply. Many already have mov ed. The land is free and tax ex cmpt, but the new homes must be paid for by the families taking them. Only 25 of the Catawbas arc classified by tne federal Indian service as fullbloodcd. And only four, in eluding retired Chief Sam Blue, still speak the Catawba language. Most of the adults have jobs in lex tile mills nearby, while their child rcn attend white schools here and in other school districts. WYLIE MOTOR CO.
