Al Exhibit Under Way Page 9 Hummingbirds Is Topic At Garden Club Meeting The Burton Talbotts provided a most rewarding afternoon at the Highlands-Cashiers Garden Club meeting on August 16th. Mrs. Corretta Talbott lectured most knowingly about hum- mingbirds. Some 30 years ago the Tel- botts bought a 200 acre tract of land from descendants of Ker- mit Rodgers to whom the acreage had been issued as a land grant. The home standing on the property is 180 years old. When the Talbotts bought the place the grounds were already occupied by an untold number of hummingbirds. The Talbotts welcomed these tiny tenants and became fascinated by them. Thus began a most re- warding study. The Talbots fed between 35 to 50 hummingbirds a day. The relationship is so natural that a bit of red ribbon attached to clothing will invite the birds to land on their shoulders. Mrs. Talbott's first remarks warned her audience against the possible extinction of the hummingbird, as well as other gentle creatures. She quoted Adelaide Stevenson as he re- marked about "Our fragile craft--our earth" and "This earth is defiled under the pre- sent inhabitants." Albert Sweit- zer was quoted, too: "Man will end by destroying the earth." Then, the speaker launched into a comprehensive deserip- webs and shaped as the knot of a tree. Do not offer the humming- birds honey. They wax sticks to their throats and will strangle them. Sugar and water mixture is the best artificial offering. Their favorite nectar is stored in the jewel weed, trumpet vine, wild phlox and bee balm. The present blooming rose of sharon is most attractive to them. They must eat every 15 to 20 minutes all day normally to stay alive, yet, when they migrate they fly without replenishing their sup- ply of food until they land in Florida, then another 500 miles non-stop to Brazil. They leave here approximately September lath and return about May lath. Mrs. Talbott suggests that you find a January, 1963, National Geographic for a more com- plete study of the hummingbird. Mr. Burton Talbott then step- ped to his projector. He is familiar to Rotary audiences in Highlands. He makes poetry with his camera and laughter with his wit and humor. Aver- ring that most of us can't see the woods for the trees, he urged the audience to observe their immediate surroundings at home and to stop long enough to take in the beauty. It's ev- erywhere. He proved it with his camera over and over again -- a small waterfall, a quiet, leaf ladened nook, a single flower or rock or shell, magnificent cloud formations, a sunrise, shadows on a mountain. No one needed to be told that Mr. Talbott is an artist with a camera. The fact is right there in his pictures. For 25 years he specialized in portraits of chil- dren. Before that he was an accountant. The Talbotts are two very accomplished people. Hostesses for the day were Miss Dorcas Brigham, Mrs. Earle De Noon and Mrs. Ernest Hinterkopf. Members are urged to note that the September meeting has been moved to September 27th and will be held at the Methodist Church Fellowship Hall, High- lands. Dr. Edwin Menninger of Stuart, Fla., and a summer resident of Cashiers for many years, will talk of the flowering trees of the world. Zachary Reunion Slated Sunday The annual reunion of the descendants of Col. John A. Zachary will be held at the Lower Zachary Cemetery, Cashiers, on Sunday, August 26, beginning at 12:30 p.m., with the Rev. Steve Kerhoulas speaking, and dinner on the grounds at I p.m. tion of these little mighty mites. ---"[[-E-"_7  For over 25 years, At Western thanThey aSmetimeSdime, yet weighthey haveleSs l/BE G [ N Ns.ViiNk M?I: K 5th Ii remarkable muscle structure the ,'=,*.=**-.-. students The first art exhibition of the and heart pumping equipment. 1979-80 academic year at Wes- Don't think of them as de- Counted  t, ,,rross-C'cl', ," '-', v , ,-'eenle'-'onL have come tern Carolina University is fenseless, however.
