The cafeteria was charming with 
its clever decorations of pumpkins 
filled with flowers ranging from 
bright yellow to dark red; yellow 
and red candles entwined with ivy; 
and yellow, orange, and black 
crepe paper, witches, and goblins. 
The windows were filled with fall 
leaves and reminders of Halloween. 
The odor from all that delicious 
food brought to mind past delect- 
able meals at Grandmother's. 

Mrs. J. D. O'Neal, President,

contest. All were lovely in gowns 
from bare shoulders and hooped, 
full skirts to slim line beaded 
styles. 

Mrs. Ward's background music 
set the mood for the old time melo- 
drama which followed. Mrs. Paul 
Wells wrote and directed "Go, Go? 
No! No", which had a five star 
cast. 

Mrs. L. F. Boteler did her usual 
excellent job of narrating this pro- 
duction. 

Mr. and Mrs. W. M. McKenzie 
were the ideal parents of Sweet 
Sue. 

Sweet Sue was played by Mrs. 
Robert Mayo (better known as Lee) 
As one club member said, "Broad- 
way's loss is Raymond's gain". 

Dr. Durward Blakey was hilari- 
ous as Clarence Clean, Sweet Sue's 
good, clean boy friend. 

Fred Brooks, magnificent as Hor- 
ace Hardheart, was the villain. 

Guests at the cabaret were Mr. 
Cecil Ward and Mr. L. F. Boteler.

The Raymond Culture Club met 
for its November meeting at the

social period prior to the meeting.

son, chairman, Mrs. George Welch 
Mr Rosser Wall, Mrs. O. C. Allen,

social period, members moved in- 
to the conference room for the pro- 
gram. The theme of the program, 
planned by Mrs. Bob Laster and 
Mrs. W. M. McKenzie, was "Chang- 
ing Industry in Mississippi." Mr. 
James Sorrels, manager of the In- 
dustrial Development Department 
of the Mississippi Agricultural and 
Industrial Board, spoke to the 
group. He covered a span of years 
in Mississippi's growth, agricul- 
turally, and industrially from the 
days of original settlement when 
man worked to survive to the cot- 
ton gin in the early eighteenth cen- 
tury to the thirties when Missis- 
sippi began a drive to attract in- 
dustry to the forties, fifties, and 
sixties when Mississippi has seen 
a tremendous growth in industry. 
Following Mr. Sorrel's talk, the 
president Mrs. J. D. O'Neal con- 
ducted a brief business session. 
The meeting was then adjourned.

Old And New 
Home Opened 
For Pilgrimage 

During our reminiscenses of our 
1971 day-to-day activities, our joys, 
sorrows, and disappointments, and. 
what we hope, the sharing of our- 
selves and our spiritual faith with 
our familes and neighbors, we real- 
ize that the past cannot be relived 
but it can be improved . . . and, 
as we go through this New Year 
it is well to remember that, as 
someone once said, "One key to 
happiness is to key your wants to 
your abilities." 

One of ihe delightful events of the 
old year was the opening of the 
lovely homes of Mr. and Mrs. E. E. 
Jackson, Mr. and Mrs. Rosser 
Wall. Mr. and Mrs. James L. 
Drake, and Mr. and Mrs. J. D, 
O'Neal for the Christmas Pilgrim- 
age held by the Raymond Culture 
Club. 

Enchantingly settled on a high 
terrace, surrounded by perfectly 
Jandscaped grounds, is the Jackson 
' -use, which is the restored home 
of Mrs. Jackson's parents, the late 
Mr. and Mrs. Lamar Puryear. The 
double front doors, with antique 
hardware of black and gleaming 
brass, were centered with beauti- 
ful gold wreaths, holding large 
velvet bows and graceful stream- 
ers. Mr. and Mrs. Jackson, as- 
sisted by Mrs. Jack Hamilton 
greeted the guests and escorted 
them through the charming house 
with interior colors of blue and. 
white, and floors covered with gor- 
geous oriental rugs. Throughout tho 
house was a, sheen of exquisite 
decorations. In the entrance hall 



HINDS COUNTY GAZETTE 



was a sparkling and graceful ar- 
rangement in colors of gold anO 
shades of blue and Christmas 
greenery; also, a pair of antique 
ferneries holding urns filled with 
lush br ght natural pine. The man- 
tle in the living room was draped 
with a garland of greenery, and 
u similar decoration was on the 
original marble mantel in the gufest 
bedroom. Beautiful antiques are 
predominant throughout the home. 
Some pieces, i^s.ed by use, were 
inner ted from the late Mr. and 
Mrs. Lamar Puryear, and many 
other pieces have been selected 
with professional care and taste- 
fully placed in the spacious rooms. 
The original paintings, a few oils 
and several water colors, and the 
rare antique accessories give the 
rooms a special beauty and quiel 
d gnity, characteristic of the gra- 
cious owners, E. E. "Jack" and 
Margaret Jackson. 

Setting comfortably In a grove 
of tall, graceful pines and on well 
manicured grounds is the modern 
brick home of the Walls, where 
guests were welcomed by a light- 
ed Christmas tree on the lawn, 
and brightly lighted holly wreaths 
at the front entrance. Mr. and Mrs. 
Wall invited the guests into the 
foyer where a large red poinsettia 
adorned the antique umbrella rack. 
The living room decorations featur- 
ed a Nativity scene lighted by a 
hingle white taper and a small 
tree ablaze with tiny gold lights. 
The dining room table was made 
festive with red tapers and red 
carnations in silver containers. 
The dinette table held an unusual 
white lamp decorated with red to 
complement the cheery Christmas 
cloth. A wrought iron basket of 
bright apples added to the early 
American decor. In the den a bas- 
ket of greenery and shiny red 
apples adorned the hearth where 
a blazing fire bespoke the winter 
season. A traditional Christmas 
tree with brightly wrapped pack- 
ages underneath added to the 
gaiety of the room. The master 
bedroom was lighted with white 
tapers and featured an unusual gold 
Madonna and a beautiful red poin- 
settia. The bedroom of the little 
daughter, Lee Ann, was made fes- 
tive by arrangements featuring the 
Littlest Angel, tiny singing nuns, 
a jolly blue Santa and lovely pink 
poinsettia. Guests were directed 

I 



upstairs where wreaths and a can 
dy cane, sugar plums, red 
and gay packages adorned the stair- 
well The young sons, David, Mik< 
and Greg, chatted with guests in 
the playroom, which featured a 
gay arangement of the Partridge- 
in-the-Pear-tree. Hoi day candle:, 
burned brightly and happy pixies 
abounded in the boys' bedrooms 
and arrangements in red and green 
with sleighs, reindeer a.id toj 
f gures added to the gaiety of the 
upstairs rooms. It is evident that 
the house was planned, designed, 
and furn ; shed in such excellent 
taste that the Rosser Wall family 
of six can and do enjoy gracious 
living, and also have individual 
privacy when they want a few 
moments of quiet to enjoy a little 
leisure. 

Riding around the circle of Mc- 
Lendon Drive one can see the 
Drake's tri-level home, which ap- 
pears to be overlooking a bluff 
with the same beauty and authority 
as a golden eagle exerting his au- 
thority over his private domain. 
James L. Drake designed this 
unique house to bring out the nat- 
ural element of the landscape, and 
to bring the outdoors inside by the 
use of vast window spaces and emi 
phasizing the use of natural wood. 
The focal point of the entire house 
is a glass entranceway with an ex- 
posed staircase. The large living 
room features a vaulted 20-foot 
ceiling, with cathedral windows, a 
spiral staircase to a balcony over- 
looking the living room, and a fire 
place with exposed bricks to the 
ceiling. The exterior is natural 
cedar and the design and location 
could well have been the envy of 
the late Frank Lloyd Wright, an 
outstanding architectural pioneer 
of this century. The house provides 
a deck that surrounds the first and 
second floors and affords a beau- 
tiful view extending over the five- 
acre yard, where pines grow ir 
splendid abundance and where 
the grounds eventually will be beau- 
tifully landscaped. Although the 
house was incomplete and unfur- 
nished, there was soft background 
music which seemed to be float- 
ing from the laminated beams, and 
the visitors experienced supreme 
delight in being privileged to touy 
this home with the vivacious and 
charming owners, James and Bec- 
ky Drake. 



Standing proudly behind magnif 
icent magnolia trees, on Highway 
18 south of Raymond, is Magnolia 
Vale, the ante-bellum home of the 
O'Neals . . . and there the Pil- 
grimage ended. The double front 
doors opened into the typical, wide 
and long center hallway, where 
guests were welcomed by Mr. and 
Mrs. O'Neal. Mrs. George H. Bar- 
ton presided at the register. The 
huose was decorated throughout in 
chraming simplicity, with tradition- 
al Christmas arrangements of hol- 
ly, velvet ribbons, red and green 
ornaments and the cheery glow of 
avocado green tapers. To complete 
the holiday decor a natural cedar 
tree sparkling with icicles and 
brightly aglow with red lights stood 
in the corner of the living room. A 
pair of white doves nestled in peace 
underneath the tree. While this 
hous is probably one of the oldest 
dwelling in this section of the coun- 
ty, Ora and J. D. O'Neal have 
shared its indefinable atmosphere 
of appealing leisure and comfort 
with many friends during the years, 
and have succeeded in making the 
house look lived in and the antique 
furniture look fitted to pleasant and 
easy living. Mrs. Ruth Kelly Smith 
directed the guests to the dining 



room where they were greeted and 
served by the hostesses. The long, 
oval refreshment table was cover- 
ed with a red satin cloth overlaid 
wth green sheer illusion sprinkled 
with velvet polka dots in varigated 
shades of red and green. The table 
was centered with a large avocado 
green candle, surrounded by an ob 
long arrangement of holiday green- 
ery interspersed with small bows 
of red velvet. The buffet held large 
silver candelabras with tall slender 
avocado green tapers burning 
gracefully. A silver service for cof- 
fee was on one end of the table, and 
a silver service for delicious hot, 
spiced red punch was on the oppo- 
site end of the table. The hostesses 
alternated in pouring. The table was 
laden with silver and crystal trays 
of dainty sandwiches made in beau- 
tiful shapes and colors appropriate 
to the Christmas season. There al- 
so were dishes of delectable home 
made candies, cookies and cheese 
wafers, and compotes of mixed 
nuts. Guests visiting Magnolia Vale 
for the first time were invited to 
stroll through the house and en- 
joy the old home and the heir- 
looms which have been in the 
family, including the O'Neal's 
grandchildren, for six generations. 






The chairman and co-chairman 
of the Christmas Pilgrimage were 
Mrs. J. D. O'Neal and Mrs. George 
H. Barton, respectively. 

The hostesses were Mrs. James 
H. Adams, Mrs. T. T. Beemon, 
Mrs. 0. B. Chamblee, Mrs. John 
Lake Gibbes, Mrs. W. W. Griffin,

After the program a short business session was conducted by 
the president. The treasurer reported a balance of $154. 52.

of $222.27 and that there were still a number of dues to be col- 
lected. 

A motion was made by Mrs. Robert Ferguson to set aside about 
$75.00 for a community project. Mrs. James H.Adams seconded the

Officers for the coming year were installed in a service 

conducted by Mrs. Robert Mayo who presented to each officer

Mrs. James H. Adams, program chairman for February, introduced 
Dr Byrle Kynerd, Director of Archives and History at the Old 
Capitol in Jackson. Dr. Kynerd is a long time resident of Raymond, 
a graduate of Raymond High School and Hinds Junior College. He 
received his Masters Degree in social studies from Mississippi 
College and bis Doctorate from the University of Georgia. Dr. 
Kynerd presented a most interesting and informative history of 
the town of Raymond. He discussed the "continuity of history" and 
the "value of contemplation" quoting Francis Bacon that "History 
makes men wise." 

He described life in Raymond from its earliest times, and its 
early settlers who were "self reliant and confident." Life in this 
frontier was"atuned to success." They knew the meaning of "try, 
try again" a quote from the familiar McGuffie Reader of the tirae. 

He told of Raymond's incorporation in 1829, the land being a 
grant from Raymond Robinson of Mt . Salus,and its becoming the site 
of county government in the early 1800' s. He described the first 
court house, a dark brick building of Gothic design with tall spires 
and "a sparkling tin roof", a handsome structure in its day. 

He told of "professional row" of which the Keith Press 
Building was one of the original, of the founding of the Gazette 
and the first schools, churches, roads, resorts and cultural 
centers . 

Between 1840 and 1850, Dr. Kynerd said, Raymond had reached a 
high peak socially, culturally, economically and politically. 

He concluded with the challenge that we "give more than we 
receive" in order to bequeath to future generations an even better 
place in which to live. 

The meeting was adjourned by the new president.

In celebration of the 42nd anniversary of the Raymond Culture

grams, the theme being "A Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever" from 

it's "Endymion." 



March 22, 1973 

For the March program enut.ed "The Seai 1 Beauty" she 
read from many ovely passages ox literature but chose Shakespeare's 
"All the world's a stage" with its description of the seven ages 
of man as her outline for the program. She showed that beauty is to 
be found within man himself manifesting itself uniquely in each 
age o: She concluded that "though one travel the world over 
to find beauty he must carry it in his heart or will not find it.

program "Melodic Moods," calling attention to the quotation 
pertaining to this theme printed in the yearbook. She introduced 
Mrs. Becky Drake, a member of the Hinds Junior College music 
faculty, who presented a program consisting of slides of art 
masterpieces arid tapes of great works of music. These were selected 
as typical of certain periods of history, the six periods she 
discussed being the Middle Ages, the Renaisance, the Baroque 
Period, the Classical Period, the Romantic Period and the Con- 
tempory Period. Both the slides and the music illustrated vividly 
that the moods of a time in history are reflected in its art and 
mus . 

She concluded that if all else were lost of a civilization 
but its art and music--the humanities--that the civilization could 
be accurately reconstructed. 

The meeting was adjourned by the president

A wind rustled the ancient nu-. as and dedars as c. 
members and their guests arrived on the stately columned gallery. 
All the windows were brightly at and the massive double doors 
were gay with wreaths of greens and berries, cones and red bows. 
The chill outside only emphasized the warmth of the welcome 
wi thin. 

Guests were welcomed in the spacious center hall by Mis. 
Robert Ferguson, club president, and Mrs. J.D.O'Nea . In the 
front bedroom Mrs. Ruth Kelly Smith invited guests to warm by 
the crackling fire and to remove their wraps. 

Another fire blazed on the ancient hearth of the parlor where 
other club officers greeted guests and Mrs. C.L.Long, historian, 
presided at the guest book. These rooms were lavishly hung with 
garlands of evergreens tied with red velvet bows. (Toquote 
Charles Dickens, they were a "perfect grove.") There was a tradi- 
tional native Christmas tree and fruit arrangements and a profusion 
of candles which shed their light on the softness of old walnut, 
rosewood, oak, and mahogany of the lovely antique pieces 
throughout the house, giving one the feeling of a Christmas 
party of long ago. 

In the dining room other hostesses served guests hot punch 
or coffee from a gleaming silver service. The massive candle lit 
table was centered with an arrangement of evergreens and red

- ss Lurline Stewart, chairman 
Mrs. Margaret Kimbo Miss Eunice Pace 

Mrs. Curtis Moffat Miss Marion Mounger 

After the social time Mrs. A.C.Sciple announced the theme of 
the program, "The Beauty in the Commonplace. " Mrs. D.L.Blakey 
introduced as guest speaker, Mr. Bob Duna. way, chairman of the art 
department of Hinds Junior College. 

In his thought-provoking talk Mr. Dunaway insisted that there 
is no such thing in creation as the "common." As an illustration 
he showed beautiful slides of so-called "common" things while he' 
played a tape of an interpretation of the account of creation found 
in Genesis. 

Mr. Dunaway stated that he is "an art educator first and a 
painter second." He pointed out the importance of "perception 
development" or "learning to see" and by way of illustration 
showed a , which he had made and which had won the Mississippi 
Arts Festival film award in 1973, entitled " Percept ion- -Concept ion . " 
He then made a plea in behalf of elementary art education in the 
state. He stated that Mississippi is fifty years behind in that 
field and that if something isn't done quickly there would be a 
"lost generation" in this respect. "Art education," he said, 
"envolves the total growth of the individual—doctors , engineers, 
crane operators who can see beauty in 'common things'." 

He concluded that art education is not confined to the class 
room, and as an example related how his grandfather, while digging

Reserve Lounge at Hinds Junior College. The hostesses, Mrs. F. 
Kn . Mrs. W.M.Davis, Mrs. A.L.Denton, Mrs. Lucille 

Bradley Mi Polk, greeted members and served nents 

ie meeting was called to order by the president. 

Minutes were read and approved. The secretary read a 1* 

■>.C.Allen, a charter member of the club, asking that her 
name be removed from the roll. Mrs. Allen stated that she had 
"thoroughly enjoyed" the club but now that she is e years old 
she feels that she can not be an active member. A motion was made 
and carried that Mrs. Allen be placed on the ioll as an associate 
membe 

The treasurer made her annual repo >viding a detailed 
tten report to be placed in the minutes book. She reported that 
the club had lost three members during the year but had gained 
ee members. 

There was a report by Mrs. J.L.Gibbes concerning the work of 
the special committee for planting shrubs to beautify the area of 
the "Little Courthouse." After she had explained in detail that a 
great deal of work, such as filling in the swampy area and repairing 
or rebuilding the Little Courthouse, needed to be done before shrubbry 
could be planted a motion was made by Mrs. W.W. Griffin that the 
club committee meet with the J.C.'s and see what could be done to 
make that entrance to Raymond more attractive before the date of 
the Raymond Pilgrimage, the more extensive work to be done later. 
The motion carried. 

New officers were installed by Mrs. W.W. Griffin. They are:

Mrs. A.L.Denton, program chairman, introduced as spea 

>on, Mrs. Robert Mayo (just recently "Grandmother Mayo . 
Mrs. Mayo's topic was "The Beauty of Literature." "The Beauty of 

rature", she reflect* ^ like the beauty of the whole woi Ldl" 
As she thought aloud back over the literature that had touched 
her life with beauty since early childhood she pointed out that 
tluough literature one ie like the man in the book, "The Man Who 
Saw through Heaven", who discovered a new concept of the woi 
and of himself. "There are two worlds, "she explained, "the exterior, 
physical world and the world within humankind and human experiences. 
Knowing the truth about ourselves and our experiences," she con- 
tinued, "is certainly as important as knowing the truth about cosmic 
rays. " 

Mrs. Mayo stated that in preparing for her talk she had 
re-read bits and parts of literature she had enjoyed from her 
earliest years to the present--! rom Robert Louis Stevenson to 
Lewis Carrol to Robert Frost and Whitman, from Aristotle and 
Voltaire to New Stage and Little Theater, from Aesop to Keats to 
Chekhov to the Bible. As she read aloud favorite excerpts her 
"tasting" left one with the hunger to read and re-read. Concerning 
the "Search for Beauty in Literature" she concluded, "Thank Heaven 
it is an individual search, a journeying through all the works of 
all mankind." 

After the program the meeting was adjourned by the new 
president .
