^WMHfltfffllhPHIIIiiillllTllflOT^ This'n. That About Town By MARY ALICE PEARSON Among annual expositions o( historic handcratts, t h e Orarks claims its National Festival of Craftsmen to be t h e show of shows." This autumn marks the twelfth year for the event at Silver Dollar City, south ot Springfield, Mo. Opening Saturday, Sept. 28, it continues daily except Mondays and Tuesdays through Sunday, Oct. 13. This particular festival aims to excell in more than just the total number of crafts exhibits. The best work of description is action. Every step of every craft is demonstrated and · explained in close proximity to the onlooker. Exhibits range from cheese-making to chair-caning and from sorghum molasses-making to log cabin construction. Among live dozen other skills to be seen throughout t h e 1800-style settlement are church making, cornshuckery, 1 o g hewing, steam-powered threshing and the baking of Ozark hearth bread and bucket bread. Additionally, Silver Dollar City's 24 "resident" crafts are in full operation, glass blowing, doll making, tintype photography, candle making, favorites of over one million persons who tour the crafts colony during the balance of its May- through October season. Traditionally, the first weekend and all weekdays of the festival are desirable from the standpoint of less-crowded viewing. Capt. Fred W.
