TC Culture Speakers Tell History Of Cities "History Of Famous Cities" was presented as the program for r "" u Twentieth Century Culture held Tuesday afternoon in Club the hotrie of Mrs. N. D. Steele with Mrs. G. L. Cradduck as co-host* ess.' The program, introduced by Mrs. Ross Buzzard, was presented by Mrs. R. E. Dobbin, Mrs. J. L 'Chase, and Mrs. E. E. Shel' hamer. In discussing the first 'of the famous cities. Mrs. Dobbin discussed Boston, Mass. "In 1630," she began, "the Puritan founding- fathers chose well when they settled on the three hills of Boston penninsuln as its deep, well-sheltered harbor was one of the finest on the Atlantic coast. The surrounding basin offered good farmlands." ' "Boston," she continued, "was the port of entry for thousands of settlers, who scattered to towns throughout the Massachusetts Bay Colony. The roads from these towns led to Boston like the R&PW dub Has Social Meeting - Business and Professional Women's Club entertained .with a Halloween Social on Tuesday evening in the ,City Club Room. The program opened with the club collect given by Mrs. Evo- spokes of a wheel and it came to be known as the Hub City." Mrs. Dobbin described the city and interesting landmarks including Beacon Hill, Boston C o m- mons, Public Gardens, Bunker Hill -Monument, Harvard University, Old North Church, Old State House, Old Kings Chapel, the Constitution or "Old Ironsides" in the United States navy yard and many other interesting places, "tn colonial times," Mrs. Dobbin said, "the Commons was used ,for pasturing cattle; now they are building garages underneath it." Mrs. Chase spoke on Jamestown. "In all history," she said, "there is no mortj heartbreaking, tragic and inspiring story than the record of the sufferings and struggles of the early colonists to establish a beachhead of English civilization on this little island." She told of the first few years when starvation, illness and Indians almost broke the stout resolution of the settlers, who went ashore on Jamestown Island. "John Smith, John Rolfe and Sir Thomas Dale played important roles in the founding of this foot- lold on American soil." "At first," the speaker c o n- tinued, "the colony lived and worked under a system of communism in which all supplies were' put in a common storehouse." Holman, vocalist, Enchanted Even- ra Crawford. Miss Jean sang "Some ing", "My Heart Reminds Ma", "May You Always" and "My Cathedral' accompanied by Miss Jo"ce Prock at the piano. E. 0. Wedgeworth, manager of the Chamber of Commerce, as guest speaker, discussed , t h e Christmas program for the city of Pampa; the effort and expense •involved; the joy given children, who might have no oilier Christmas other than the pleasure of the "Santa Day' parade. As « conclusion to the program, Mrs. F. W. Shbtwell, program chairman, read "Little Orphan Annie." ' Games and refreshments comprised the remaining portion of the social meeting. Doughnuts and coffee were served from a table decorated in the Halloween motif. This communistic s y s t e .m, tried so unsuccessfully at Jamestown, antedated the Russian one by more than 300 years and the cause of its failure may still be valid." "There simply was no incentive to individual initiative," M r s. Chase emphasized. "Sir Thomas Dale, governor, decided to change this. He allotted each man three acres of land to cultivate for his own use; conditioned on the paying tax of six .bushels of corn annually into the public grain- ery." "Almost overnight, the settlement was transformed into R body of more or less thrifty land proprietors, The spirit of Individ ceased as the years passed. In 16?6, the first armed struggle for liberty in America occurred at Jamestown." "tn 195?, the little settlement was reconstructed and the Jamestown festival took place with pageants, music and art. The multitudes of Americans, Who visit Jamestown during the Coming years will do well to remember that the very soil beneath their feet is mixed with the mortal dust of thousands of men, women and children, who perished there that a nation, our nation, might be born." In discussing Philadelphia, Mrs. Shelhamer in opening remarks said, "Philadelphia is a Greek word meaning "Brotherly Love." This name was chosen by its founder, William Penn, because his dream was of a place of complete religious'and racial f r e e- dom, of universal good-will and of fine and thrifty citizenship." "Philadelphia," she said, "is not only one of the most important American cities it is also one of the most historic. It is a 'shrine city" for here are Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, Carpenters' Hall, Chrvst Church, the Betsy Ross house and many other places that mark the beginning of this country as a separate nation."
