THE BLUE RIDGE DIGEST On October 26, from 10:00 am til 5-00 pm, the 12th Annual Blue Ridge Folklife Festival will be held at Ferrum College. Those of you who have attended previous festivals there know how much enjoyment is in store for people attending. The admission will be $2.00 for adults and SI.OO for senior citizens and children. This includes parking fees. The highlight of this year's festival will be country music groups that appeared on radio stations WDBJ, WSLS and WROV in Roanoke in the 30's, 40' s and 50's. In those days the programing was live and lively. You'll get a taste of that through several groups such as Roy Hall and the Blue Ridge Entertainers, The Texas Troubadours, Shenandoah Valley Pals, and others, as they preform for you again. This will be the largest such gathering in the history of Virginia. In addition to the old radio groups, there will also be a minstral show, horse pulling, a petting zoo, antique car and steam engine exhibits, craft demonstrations a...

OCTOBER, 1985 MOUNTAIN LAUREL PAGE 14 GROWING UP ON TOGGLES CREEK "The Chinquapin Patch" Along about the last of October, we used to gather together on a Sunday afternoon to go chinquapin hunting. Usually we wound up in Uncle Jeff shelor's fine patch, where, in clearing the land, he had carefully left all the chinquapin bushes intact and tended the land around them. Some of the bushes were maybe ten or twelve feet tall, but most of them could be reached standing on the ground. About the time of year the little burs began to open and expose the little round, brown nuts for picking, they were delicious, especially if allowed to dry and sweeten a few days. Sometimes they were invaded with tiny worms and one old gag went like this: Question - What is worse than biting into a chinquapin (or chestnut) and finding a worm? Answer - Finding half a worm!

ELIZABETH'S JOURNAL The following is an excerpt from a journal kept by Elizabeth Cooley McClure of Carroll County, Virginia from 1842 (she was 17 then) til her death in 1848. At this point in the story, she is married and she and her husband have traveled to Texas to start their life together there only to find the situation with war untolerable. They are back on the river traveling to Missouri now to homestead there. A special thanks to the Cooley family for sharing this journal with us. June 19th. [1846] Sailing up Mo., very warm.

OCTOBER, 1985 MOUNTAIN LAUREL PAGE 16 The Great October Auction The first Monday in October 1926 dawned grey and misty. A thin fog covered the meadows, glens and cornfields of Mayberry. The sun kept pushing hard against the grey and by 9 that morning it had popped through above the Knobs revealing a blaze of color above the laurels and rododendron that lined the brown road banks leading to Mayberry. The blight that brought the blues to that community and surrounding territories had already started killing the chestnut trees. But a few still retained a golden sheen. A sad day in August that year had brought the untimely death of Cephus Scott, one of the area's best known citizens and merchant. This had started a chain of events that was to culminate in the sale of ponderous amounts of dry goods, hardware, and groceries that crammed his big store. It was to be an auction sale that had been advertised by printer, Eslie Smith as one of the greatest events of the year 1926. And for Maybe...

GREAT OCTOBER AUCTION Continued from page 16. see my darling any more." It was Ernest alright. A bunch of men interested only in the hardware to be sold on the 2nd and had started a poker game in the cutting room of the big barn that stood on the store grounds. Dick Marshall was trying to draw to an inside straight and made it. Dick was always sharp as well as lucky, some of the horses tied at the long hitching pole were whinnying. The crowd moved back to allow a smoking Model T roadster to chucker through. About everyone recognized the winning grin and friendly wave of Rev. Bob Childress. "Stay with us preacher," big Len, the auctioneer called. Ennis Dickerson, faking outrage because someone outbid him on a pair of moleskin trousers tore a shoe box in two and stomped the halves in the dust. A few people laughed and Ennis looked pleased. The auctioneer shouted, "Another pair, just your size, 46's, coming up Ennis," and Ennis wound up paying more than the trousers had been originally...

OCTOBER, 1985 MOUNTAIN LAUREL PAGE 18 Randall Hylton: Bluegrass Songwriter by: Vicki Moser Fan Fair in Nashville, Tennessee is always a particularly important week for native Virginian Randall Hylton. For those of you who are not familiar with Fan Fair, it is a regular event in June of each year in which thousands of fans flock to the country music capital of the world to see their favorite stars and be entertained non-stop for seven full days and nights. Although the primary appeal of the event is country music, it also attracts bluegrass music fans and bands as well, and in recent years the bands have been featuring more and more Randall Hylton songs. Randall Hylton (a native of Willis in Floyd County) is known as the number one bluegrass songwriter in America. His songs have been recorded by such artists as Lester Flatt, Mac Wiseman, the Osborne Brothers, the Lewis Family, the Country Gentlemen, Curly Seckler, Ralph Stanley, Larry Sparks, Doyle Lawson, and the Bluegrass Cardinals...

Olden Golden Rule Days Architecturally, most of these schools varied little in style, consisting of two school rooms, each with its own entrance and each with its own small porch on which a winter supply of fire wood was stored before the autumn air had begun to chill. The windows were placed high enough to obstruct any distracting view and, I suppose, to minimize drafts of cold air. Facing the school, the "Little Room," the room for the younger children, was situated to the left of the building, and the room for the older students, the "Big Room," to the right. (Later, as schools started to consolidate, only one room was used.) Centered between the two entrances was the cloak room. The schoolroom floors were bare wood. They were given a generous coat of oil prior to the commencement of the school year; the black soles of our bare feet bore the evidence for many days thereafter. If memory serves me right, each room contained three or four rows of desks, with the smallest desks (for ...

OCTOBER, 1985 MOUNTAIN LAUREL PAGE 20 RANDALL HYLTON Continued from page 18. Randall often writes about places and happenings in his native Virginia and in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Titles of some of these works include Woolwine, Virginia, a tale about being stranded in a snow drift on Route 8, and Rock and Clay, a fictitious story about growing up at the foot of Buffalo Mountain both of which are available on cassette . More recently he has written a gospel song entitled The Little River Mission which talks about turning an unused,one room schoolhouse into a church, a practice which was quite prevalent in the Blue Ridge Mountains during the 1940's and 1950'5. The Bluegrass Cardinals plan to record this song on their next gospel album. He has also written a catchy tune entitled Beulah's Cafe about Ewell and Beulah Poff's filling station and restaurant on Route 221 in Floyd County which was a well known hangout until it burned down some years ago. After achieving the status of one of...

Twenty-one years ago Virginia Yeatts plunged into a daring venture in the little mountain community of Meadows of Dan, Virginia. Combining her skill as a weaver and good judgement, she opened the first craft shop in the area. In the beginning she rented the old farm house that is now a red two story landmark and featured hand blown glass and her own hand woven items. Her business savy was based on a philsophy of quality. Over the years, her reputation as a merchant of quality hand stitched quilts, porcelain dolls and other fine works spread far and wide. Once she pointed out to me the difference between good and excellent quilt needlework. Her appreciation of the quilter's art was apparent and her shop always reflected her personal standards of taste and excellence. This year, as the leaves perform their annual display of beautiful colors, Virginia will be retiring and closing THE CRAFT HOUSE doors for the last time. She and her husband, author John H. Yeatts, are planning on taking...

OCTOBER, 1985 MOUNTAIN LAUREL PAGE 22 BACKROADS Continued from page 24. winesap apples were ready in the mountains and each fall he would bundle us into the car and head for the hills. The rides were always peppered with Mon's words of caution, "Now you better slow down on these curves Arnold." I must admit that Dad's driving had plenty of room for improvement because once the elevation started rising, his eyes were glued to the breathtaking beauty. He would stare in awe at crimson maple leaves and munch his way to bliss on one of the crisp wine- saps, that were kept from the bushel when the basket was put in the trunk. Those trips and Dad's enthusiasm created a special place for mountain Autumns in my heart that will never diminish. It is a time when the mountains are offering their best to each of us and the wonder of nature is spread like a blanket of glory across every hillside.

HEARTOF THE BLUE RIDGE VXouniain i Copyright 1985 Laurel Publications Inc. °^ r Jgaurel Monthly Journal of Mountain Life A self-guided monthly tour of Mountain Backroads mountains never get to see the really pretty places that are hidden away on mountain back roads. As residents who love and appreciate a stream gurgling through a glade or a deer standing in a roadside meadow or an old weathered barn tucked away in a mountain hollow, our BACKROAD column allows us to share our favorite spots with you. "Never take the main roads, they're the future with their stores, offices and service stations. Always travel the backroads.
