Gravestone Rubbin g Project Undertaken by 7th Graders BELLPORT—Two of Mrs. Jean Coakley ' s Seventh Grade social studies classes at Bell port Junior High School have completed a project which entailed gravestone rubbing. It all began in a discussion in Mrs. Coakley ' s classes concerning Bellport' s early families when Day MacDougall revealed that there ¦ <« wet'fi several familv trravestones on her property. Day rubbed the impression of the stone onto shelf paper with pencil. Seve ral of her classmates be- came interested in the print , verse and style of the stone and other classmates who knew of grave- stones yet unrubbed , joined the activity. Soon there were 39 grave rubbings repi-esenting 12 families , some of whose history was found in a report comp iled by Richard Geraine and Richard Dilg. A map of the entire area covered by the graves was drawn by Kirk Ridge- way and Dennis Viola. The oldest gravestone found by the students was that of Thomas Rose , dated 1780. Mr. Rose died at the age of 44 and was descend- ed from Jonathan* Rose , a cooper (barrel maker) who in 1681 'bought almost all of South Bell- port. Jonathan ' s son , Robert , pur- chased much of North Bellport in 1720. Five men , including John B rewster , later bought land from the Rose family. The students al- so rubbed the stone of Captain Nathan Rose whose ston e is dated 1793. The grave rubbings have been mounted on black paper and have been displayed in the hall bulletin board of the junior hig h school and in Mrs. Coakley ' s classroom.

Troop 128 Patrol in Tie For First in Polar Event ENTITLED TALLIEN'S CHILDREN' : By Mary Alburger Going on sale Wednesday at bookstores is a novel entitled \Tallien s Children , \ by Herthr. Pretorius , published by Appleton Century-Crofts. On the baik of the color ful book jacket appears a photograp h easily identified by many in this area as the likeness of Mrs. Herbert Kouts of Still- woods Road , Brookhaven. Miss Pretorius and Mrs. Kouts are one and the same. Until five years ago , Hertha Kouts lived a life similar to that of many other serious-minded , intellectually in- clined home makers. The wife of a physicist in the nuclear engin- eering section of the Brookhaven National Laboratory, she devoted herself to the needs of her hus- band and two daughters , the care of their attractive Swedish mod- ern home and garden , and had time for a number of special in- terest groups. She even managed to teach second grade in t/he West Middle Island School the year her younger daughter , Catherine , started school. Yet she felt the need to communicate her feelings and ideas to others and felt in- adequate to this need orally. A professional writer among her friends , knowing that Hertha did some writing, urged her to submit her work to an agent in order to see if it might be mar- ketable. Using her maiden name , Pre- torius , Hertha Kouts did just that. To be sure , her work was prompt- ly rejected , but with it came encouragement to keep at it , for there was promise. Mrs. Kouts wrote whenever she could find the time. Finally, she sold a short story through her agent, to the Canadian Ladies Home Journal. Her agent urged the growing writer to attempt a novel , which form seemed suitable to her ma- terial and style. While she had done both undergraduate and graduate work in English at Lou- isiana State University, Mr. Kouts had taken only a brief course in creative writing in an adult edu- cation program. She had been , and is , a great reader. It can be said that largely through her own e ffort and some guidance from her agent , she learned how to w r rite. Mrs. Kouts comes from New Orleans. Generations of her father ' s people are from that city. Of the people of that city and state of Louisiana , she writes with feeling and authority. She is a husky-voiced, blonde , rather deli- catel y wrought woman of under average height. There is an aura of sensitivity about her. She is articulate and not one to shun social groups or gaiety. Most weekdays she writes , whil e the- girls are in school , down in her own goodsized basement floor study, where shelves of books con- tain references and maps she uses in writing. Mrs. Kouts still finds time to be on the book committee of the Brookhaven Free Library, which selects the books purchased for the library. Her husband comes from the western states and travels widely at home and abroad. The older Kouts girl , Ann , 15 , is artistic , interested in music and writes eloquentl y on the p lig ht of society and humanity at large. While she resembles her mother in coloring and build , her younger sister , Catherine , bears an equally striking likeness to her father in general build and in darker color- ing. She like her sister , is an ex- cellent student in Central School District 4. She studies piano and is seldom seen not absorbed in a book. i he writer and her family hope to go on a camping trip through the West this Summer. Hertha Pretorius is quick to say these are good times for writers. She , herself , is among some 65 writers to be publishing a first novel during the first three months of the current year. Miss Pretorius received pre- prints of her first novel just as she was mailing off a rough draft of her second novel based on the coffee business in New Orleans. By last Spring, she had finished her first novel , which is now ap- pearing after the revisions and changes that are a necessary part of writing. \Tallien ' s Children \ is about a French New Orleans family and a father ' s efforts to impose his ways on his six grown children. The author is concerned with the problem of how one can escape the past and yet keep the best of what it has to offer. A professional trade review of the novel praised its honesty. Miss Pretorius was also among the new writers written up in the Febru- ary issue of \Library Journal. \ So far as a word to other women is concerned , Miss Pretor- ius cannot urge them too strongly to be proud of being homemakers if they are completely happy in the role. It is a role, she feels. too important to be stated apolo- getically by the many women to- day who do not feel that being a housewife and using spare time intelligently is the answer to the invariable question , \What do you do?\ 2 AMBULANCE TRIPS BELLPORT — One patient was taken to Brookhaven Memorial! Hospita l and one broug ht home by the Bellport ambulance during the past week.
