GREGG F A Y E T T E V I L U E ^ Recycling Hobby Turns Cigar Boxes Into An Art Form. :Ey VIVIAN BROWN AP Ncwsfeatnres Writer Cigar boxes always have been recycled into other boxes [or jewelry, bills, sewing, whatnots. and even into shadow boxes, but one recycling hobby , that caught States before the in the United turn of the century was tramp ar t , ivhich turned boxes into an art form. Helalne Fendelman, who- collects 'the folk art, was explaining -tramp art at the National Arts 'and Antiques show, where she had one of (he interesting exhibits at the Madison Square Garden show, largely dominated by jewelry. "Tramp art was made out of pieces of ivoort from cigar, fruit and vegetable boxes and pieces of pine., These were chipped and carved or notched on the edges, usually a pocket Layering of the notched wood ives a cumulative effect to the )ieces so that they look heavy. Many cigar h ox es were very so [t wood, which was easily chipped. Others wore Brazilian mahogany and Spanish cedar. knife. Glue and nails often were used to hold the pieces .together. The chipped art often is in pyramid form, either the motif that decorates the piece or the piece itself. There are early examples in many areas of the world of the art, which traveled to the United Stales middle of the 19th century. the Caju-n £ re neb Book Nearing Publication CROWLEY, La.

For. the. first time, the soft French South Louisiana kiher- ted from Acadian forebears will be set down in the written word as a formal course for use , in "its natural environment, the classroom," said the textbook's author. Jumes D. Faulk. Faulk. a French instructor in Acadia Parish schools, said the book'is the first .of two volumes designed to teach French as it is spoken by natives of South Louisiana, rather than as it is spoken in France. The book is divided into them a t i c - u n i t s -- the home, the city,"foad and the family.-Each u n i t , introduces a new vocabulary of Cajun words and idiomatic expressions, and uses the vocabulary to teach the rules of grammar. Faulk said he created 41 phonetic symbols by using familiar English sounds to (.each pronun ciatlon. Course materials have been used on an experimental basis since the 1974-1975 school year. The author gathered vocabu St. M a r t i n ami Iberia parishes. "The book's value is both cchnical and cultural," said 'aulk, a college and high ichool instructor for 25 years. "The purpose of teaciiing a orefgn language is lo have slu- pincushion on a pedestal, a niece with litlle diamonds and nearls that showed great imagination "and could not have been dune by a common hobo or bum," Mrs. Fendelman explained. ''It had lo be someone with skill and intelligence."

Kautk said his purpose in vriting the text was not to re- alfice or compete with the .caching o/ standard French, jut to offer Cajun French as an alternative for stijdcnls.
