    Notes 
    • WOMAN OF THE WEEK

      Mrs. William Bernard Ferguson of Weaverville is named Evangeline and, like Longfellow's, is "fair to behold" in appearance as well as deed. As chairman of White Cross Supplies of the Presbyterian Women of the Synod of Appalachia, she was in charge of two shipments to African Mission sta­tions last March and October. At pres­ent, the women of the four Presby­teries, Asheville, Abingdon, Va.; Hols-ton and Knoxville, Tenn., are working on another quota for Korea. Mrs. Ferguson became president of the Weaverville Women of the Church the first of the year. Well-known in musical circles, she studied organ under Dr. Scott Hunter at Woman's College. She served as organist in Holy Trinity Episcopal and First Baptist Churches in Greensboro before mov­ing to WNC. A charter member of the Weaverville Music Study Club, she was president four times and sings in the quartet of the group. She has been an officer of the Western District, N. C. Federation of Music Clubs. As a Red Cross Gray Lady, she taught a
      music appreciation course to ambula­ tory patients at Oteen VA Hospital. Mrs. Ferguson has been organist and choir director of the Weaverville Pres­byterian Church for many years. Her friends, knowing how she always tries to get one more thing done, will ap­preciate this: One Sunday morning, almost late for the service, she re­marked to Dr. H. B. Dendy, the pas­tor, that if she were two people she, perhaps, could get there on time. He smiled understanding^ and said, "Have you ever thought about this? You both might be late." Mrs. Fergu­son, who is said to resemble the Duch­ess of Windsor, is always very smartly dressed. She loves to sew and makes nearly everything she wears. In addi­tion she makes many things for her daughter Mrs. Ben Bosworth, and her four-year old granddaughter, Kathy, of Hampton, Va. Other hobbies are collections of antique earrings and handpainted china cups and saucers. Many of these were purchased on trips to Canada to visit the late Mr. Ferguson's parents.
