By KATHLEEN FAULK One of the last surviving widows of a Confederate veteran of the War Between the States, Mrs. Dora Jane Moody Prevatte, died two weeks ago in a Shelby hospital at the age of 83. Though she had lived in Cherryville near a daughter for the last few years, her roots and those of her late husband, the Rev. Furney A. Prevatte, lay deep in Robeson soil. Many years separated this husband and wife in age. Rev. Prevatte, a widely known and respected Baptist preacher for more than 65 years, was born in 1842. He first married Isabelle Frances Currie, and they had eleven children. After her death in 1914, when the minister was past 70 years old, he married Dora Moody of Dillon County, S.C., who was in her 20's. The Prevatte and Moody families were long-time friends. Dora's father, the Rev. John Henry Moody, was a Baptist minister also. And when he and her mother, Laura Jane Stephens, were married, Rev. Prevatte had performed the ceremony. This service was reciprocated many years later when the Prevatte-Moody vows were exchanged before the bride's father on July 17, 1917. And it was then that the second Mrs. Prevatte came to Robeson to make her home. Of this union, four children were born, three daughters and a son. Two of the daughters survive. WAR SERVICE Rev. Prevatte lived to be 98 in his native Robeson, which was home all of his life except for a period of four years' service with the 18th North Carolina Regiment composed of Confederate .soldiers from Bladen, Robeson, Columbus and Cumberland Counties. Of him it was written -- more than one time in long-ago issues of The Robesonian -- "He stood with Jackson at Chancellorsvilie, with Lee at Gettysburg." In a fight at Hanover Courthouse in Virginia, he was seriously wounded in the shoulder, and at the Battle of the Wilderness he was captured and taken to the federal prison at Elmira, N.Y. He was a prisoner there until Lee surrendered and became a trusted nurse in care of ill and dying Confederate soldiers. When the war ended in 1865, the then-young man returned to his home in the Saddletree area. Not only did he take an active part in veterans' affairs, serving in time as commander of the Willis Pope Camp, Confederate Veterans of Robeson County, but also he began to preach. Rev. Prevatte remained an active Baptist pastor throughout his life, following in the footsteps of his father, for whom he was named. It was said that he baptized Over 1,500 converts, married 500 couples and helped organize 16 churches in Robeson and adjoining 'I'm a Girl Scout... The thing I like best about taking pictures is seeing something in a special way and then being able to show it to my friends. I love to sing and write my own songs. Acting is fun too. It would be neat if someday I could become a professional actress or a singer. Being a photographer wouldn't be bad either." The cookie sale is coming... we're counting on you! Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. MRS. DORA PREVATTE counties. At the tune of his death on October 17, 1940, he was the oldest Confederate veteran in the county. He and his first wife are buried in the old F.A. Prevatte Cemetery on Highway 301 north of Lumberton. Some time after his death, Mrs. Dora Prevatte moved to Marietta to be near a daughter, Mrs. Hugh (Ruth) Walters. She lived in a mobile home beside the building housing the home and grocery store operated by Mr. and Mrs. Walters. A FINE WOMAN Neighbors in Marietta express great respect for Mrs. Prevatte. "She was a fine woman," said one friend, "and an active attendant at Bear Swamp Baptist Church (near Lake View, S.C.)." Another added, "Her Walters grandsons really loved her." Those grandsons are Ronnie Walters, who is married and now living in California; Tony, a student in the School of Medicine of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; and Dennis (Denny) Walters of Marietta. Their mother died in 1969 and is buried at Olivet Cemetery, Marietta. Some time after Mrs. Walters' death, Mrs. Prevatte moved to Cherryville, where her eldest daughter, Mrs. Lyle (Juanita) Smith lives. She was in Cherryville when she died on January 16, and she was buried there. Surviving, in addition to Mrs. Smith, are another daughter, Mrs. Cecil (Rebecca) Thompson of Richmond, Va.; one sister, Mrs. Addie Hollis of Lexington, S.C.; 11 grandchildren; and 13 great- granchildren. The fourth child of the Rev. Furney A. and Dora Moody Prevatte was a son, F.A., who died as a child in 1929. Thus passes a legend of a man and his wives spanning a period of 135 years. Today there are no living children of the Prevatte- Currie union, but there are a number of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, perhaps more generations to carry on the family tradition. Of the Prevatte-Moody marriage, besides the two daughters, there are those 24 grandchildren and great- grandchildren to continue the line both here and in other places, throughout the country. Gerald A. Tyner, Son Of Robeson Couple, Ordained Waelder, Texas -- Gerald A. Tyner, son of Mr. and Mrs. E. Wil' j Tyner of Rt. 4, Lumberton, was ordained to the ministry on Sunday, January 23. The service was held in the First Baptist Church of Waelder, Texas, where Rev. Tyner is serving as interim pastor. He and his wife, Joyce, formerly of Albany, Ga., and their two daughters live in nearby Seguin, Texas. They have lived there since he left the United States Air Force in 1969. He is employed in Seguin by American Telephone and Telegraph Co. Rev. Tyner has been engaged in lay ministry work for several years and was licensed to preach by his home church, Trinity Baptist of Seguin, in August of 1974. There were 46,000 injuries from inflammable liquids serious enough to require hospital treatment in the U.S. in 1975. A visit by the district extension agent, reports and plans for activities and a program on maintaing good health habits were highlights of the quarterly meeting of the Robeson County Council of Extension Homemakers held recently at the O.P. Owens Agriculture Center. Mrs. Thurman Anderson, council president, presided. With emphasis on the hands, Miss Mary Cameron from the Robeson County Church and Community Center gave a timely devotion. She suggested that the group research the Bible and read Scripture related to the hands. Mrs. Robert Hill and Wilson Gerald, P r o c t o r v i l l e e x t e n s i o n homemakers, led group singing.

The guest speaker, Miss Shirley McQuenn from the Robeson County Health Department, was introduced by Mrs. Ann Fail, home economics extension agent. "Homemakers should strive to achieve good health through good physical health programs, How To Shop Sales By Judi Light Penley WNS--How can you tell when a clothing sale is really a sale? Not A come-on gimmick, not false advertising, but a real honesMo-goodness sale? Read on. "Reduced for Clearance" are the best sales that reputable dealers have during the year. These are usually held in August and February, and savings on clothes range between 50 to 75 per cent. "Pre-Clearance Sales" are less dramatic and you'll only save 10 to 25 per cent here. But the choice of clothing styles will be better, since merchandise hasn't been "picked over" yet. "Men's and Women's Coat Sales" are usually held on Columbus Day and Election Day. Often suits and rainwear go on sale around this time, too. "Shoe Clearance Sales" are held in January and July, and offer up to 50 per cent savings on national brands. "Summer Clothing Sales" are held in July and offer ladies' bathing suits, beach wraps, and sheer dresses at very good prices. If you want to save up to 75 per cent at summer sales, wait until August to get in on the big mark-downs. "Lingerie Sales" are held from the end of December to the middle of January. Buyers try to clear out excessive stock which wasn't sold through the Christmas holidays. "Handbag Sales" generally are held in January and July. Savings here are usually moderate, but a few dollars saved on each handbag adds up. "Men's National Brand Clothing Sales" are advertised at 10 to 15 per cent savings. Watch the local newspapers for the dates on these sales; the time varies with different stores. "Women's Spring Suit and Coat Sales" take place in May and early June, depending on where you live. The savings here is usually up to 50 per cent off the regular price. "Special Purchase Sales", whereby stores order extra clothes and shoes just for the sale, offer about 10 per cent in savings. This type of sale is not considered to be a true sale by consumer boards, since the price tag does not show a markdown. Sales that offer limited numbers of items at a very low price are a waste of time, unless you get there within a two hours of the store's opening. This type of sale is scheduled to lure customers into the store -- not to offer a true sale. mental health and well balanced diets," said Miss McQueen. She also discussed the high risk diseases such as cancer, diabetes, obesity, hypertension and veneral diseases. She concluded with the seven symptoms of cancer. DISTRICT EMPHASES The December District Program of Work workshop was discussed by Mrs. Robert T. Smith. Major district goals include physical check-ups, securing new members, organizing 4-H clubs, Girls Haven Days, year-round gardens and cultural arts program. The quilt project held in December was reported on by Miss Freeland Gearlds. She expressed appreciation for the cooperation of all homemakers with the fund-raising project. The quilt was won by Reginald McMillan of St. Pauls. The president asked the executive committee to make plans for the county-wide Achievement Program. Mrs. C.K. Graham explained the Lap Reading Program and encouraged all homemakers clubs to teach children to read. SWAPSHOP The council is sponsoring a Swap Shop on February 4 at the Agriculture Center. Club members will sell household items that will be collected from their homes. The Swap Shop is designed for beginning families and anyone else needing choice kitchen and household items. The sale begins at 10 a.m. and will conclude at 4:30 p.m. The Education Tour to the Southern Living Show in Charlotte will be held March 1 it was announced.

Burg WNS -- Bananas are consistent bargains -ridiculously cheap for the amount of enjoyment, satisfaction and versatility they afford. A 3.5-ounce banana has 84 calories and provides 21.1 grams of carbohydrates; two milligrams (mg.) sodium, .5 grams total fat, and no cholesterol, according to nutritionist Barbara Kraus. They're high in potassium and offer a good supply of Vitamins A, B-6 and C; thiamine, riboflavin, niacin and iron, according to the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture. Buying and Cooking Guide: Volume varies according to their form. One medium banana, sliced, equals two- thirds cup; diced, two inedium. bananas make one cup, and three medium bananas, mashed, make one cup. Broil, bake or saute firm, green- tipped bananas. The yellow stage is best for raw use. Mash ripe, brown-flecked bananas for milkshakes or banana bread. To prevent discoloration, dip in lemon juice. Now let's monkey around with this widely cultivated perennial herb of the genus Musa, so you won't be up a tree when planning dessert to dispel the midwinter bUES OR BLAHS. Welcome to the tropics with a banana-rum-coconut concoction to dazzle the banana base. Bananas Ole: Beat one-half pint heavy cream (avoid "ultra- pasteurized" cream, as it gains minimum volume in beating and doesn't hold up) with one- quarter cup confectioners' sugar till very thick. Fold in one-quarter cup dark rum and one teaspoon vanilla. Halve four large firm bananas lengthwise and saute them in one-quarter cup melted butter or margarine till golden. Arrange them on a warm platter and sprinkle with one- quarter cup granulated sugar. Spoon whipped cream over bananas and sprinkle lightly with ground cloves and toasted coconut. Yields four servings. Gingered Crepes: Beat the following ingredients one minute with electric mixer or blenderize till smooth: one-half cup each, all-purpose white flour and rye flour (or use one cup white flour); one-eighth teaspoon salt; one tablespoon cocoa; one-half teaspoon ginger; one-quarter teaspoon cinnamon; one-eighth teaspoon ground cloves; one-quarter teaspoon nutmeg; three eggs; one-quarter cup unsulphured molasses; one cup milk; one- quarter cup water or ginger brandy, and three tablespoons oil.
