POEM:

“The More Abundant Life’’ by Louise D. Chamberline

—_—_—_—_—

Gloucester, Cape Ann First white man to visit its shores was Thorwald in 1004. Harbor called by Norsemen “‘Krossanes.” Gosnold landed here in 1602 and found the place had been used as a base by Portuguese fisher- men. In 1605 Champlain sailed by the Cape but did not land. The next year, September 1606, he entered the harbor which he named Le Beauport and made a map of it. Attacked by 200 In- dians and sailed away the next day. In 1614 Capt. John Smith named it Cape Ann after Anne of Denmark, mother of King Charles I. First permanent set- tlement of the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1623.

Stage Fort Park at westerly entrance of city. Site of settle- ment of Massachusetts Bay Colony, 1623-24. Tablet in com- memoration of that fact placed on face of large boulder. Conant, Half Moon and Stone beaches.

Rafe’s Chasm and Norman’s Woe. Scene of “Wreck of the Hesperus.” At Magnolia, Hes-

WHITHER?

SINCE THE LAST issue of the Shore things have happened, epochal in their import. The groggy old world emerging from the Great War was just coming back on an even keel, having been knocked down until the crosstrees were buried in water, when another hurricane struck her squarely amid- ships and again thrust her on her beam ends and now the good ship wallows and strains to right herself and square away on a course of sanity. Excuse mixed metaphors—if you detect any.

First that world stabilizer, King George died. Sig Mussolini had gone off on the African rampage. Sick at heart the King, dreading another World War drench of the kingdoms best blood sank beneath the terrific strain and was gathered to his fathers. Then came Ed- ward the Eighth and the opening days of his reign have not been auspicious. Anthony Eden bravely met the Roman challenge with England’s fleet. But Trafalgar has not been repeated. Sold out by the duplicity of Laval and Amer- ican sanctions—both political sides tak- ing no chances with the Italian vote in this critical Presidential year in New York—England has suffered the most humiliating discomfiture in its history. But there’s a saying that the English always lose every round but the last when she scores a knockout. Time will tell.

Then Herr Hitler, seizing opportunity by ‘the forelock repeats the old Teutonic trick of making scraps of paper of treaties and boldly leaping the barrier takes possession of the Nomans’ land across the Rhine and calmly asks what are you going to do about it?

Japan with its modern Genghis Khans is moving westward with terrific speed halted only by Russia. China is virtually gobbled up. Looking eastward the Nipponese, according to newspaper reports, are reported to have made over- tures to a South American power for a

What power does Japan have in mind? For the Japanese hold that if America can decree and maintain a Munroe doc- trine for the western hemisphere what logical objection to her assuming the same suzerainty over Asia and Austral- sia? And why, indeed, when you come to analyize it? The only doubt about it is whether Japan can back up her pre- tensions with sufficient force to comply respect and acquiescence. More than ever this is the age of the Right of Might, tooth and claw.

Nor is this virus of economic unrest confined to these major powers. Even Spain and Portugal which ten years ago were thought firmly anchored to the an- cient teachings, civic, economic and clerical, have completely revolutionized the old order of things. Down in Mex- ico the same state of affairs. Verily the world is upside down.

The death of Kipling marks the pass- ing of the world’s greatest poet and lit- erary light of the century from 1850 on. He too—the Empire’s greatest exponent —went saddened to his death hastened by the debacle of his latest days. He sleeps beside the men who have made England great—in war, literature and science. It is fitting that justice should come to him, although posthumously.

While there is no mistaking the omin- ous important of the big black clouds rolling steadily eastward from the Pa- cific front, the United States has not been embroiled. Fortunately the elder statesmen of all political parties are as one on the most important essential that

The time has come for sober thinking and sane action in the halls of legisla- tion. Gen.

BEARSKIN NECK (ROCKPORT) ART GALLERY

Arthur C. Smith of Rockport and St. Petersburg, Fla., has opened his gallery for another season.

Those who are “art hungry” may sup on good wholesome art without a cover charge and study the tech- nique of the paintings now on dis- play.

Many distinguished artists who are either resident or summering at this picturesque town are repre- sented by some of their best work.

Mr. Smith has made the rounds of the artists’ studios and picked out little gems to be displayed on the gallery walls. Many of the small paintings would brighten up a dark space in any home, and the most fastidious collectors would deem it an honor to own most any of the paintings.

It would seem that the depres- sion has brought the artists down from painting mammoth canvases to the small size paintings which no doubt are nearer to what the public can pay for. Many of these are direct studies from nature and completed in one sitting, with all the freshness of the early morn- ing’s dew in them.

Aldro T. Hibbard, N.A., tops the list of exhibitors. His small snow pictures of scenes in Vermont, ex- press so nicely the feeling of win- ter when all is snowy white. Hib- bard never disappoints his public with his masterful paintings.

We also like Galen J. Perrett’s work, his marines are so colorful; they are rendered with precision, the swirl of the sea as it crashes over the rocks has a_ beautiful foamy qaulity which many of the painters of the sea do not seem to register. Stanley W. Woodward, a new arrival in the Rockport Art Colony, is classed with the best painters of the sea. His two ma- rines are sparkling. Local sea

painters are Parker Perkins and Gilbert Margeson, who are also worshippers of the angry sea. They work the best while the waves dash high against the rocky shore.

Our versatile Anthony Thieme can paint a pictorial subject which pleases the public taste, and, what would an exhibition be along the North Shore without the famous Motif No. 1?

Marguerite Pearson has a lovely painting entitled “Playing the Me- lodeon,” a nice composition and is painted charmingly.

Others who have good work on display are Emile Gruppe, Frank Rines, Grace Russell, M. Bennett- Brown, Raymond Carter, Joseph Higgins, Otis P. Cook, Jr., Mary W. Wagner, A. F. Jacobson, Yar- nell Abbott, and J. Eliot Enneking.

The public is cordially invited to attend, and is open daily to Sep- tember 15.

NEMO.

John Lonergan of New York City has been occupying one of the Sav- age studios during June.

Yarnall Abbott of Philadelphia has arrived at his Main st. studio for a stay late into the season.

The Misses Cora and Marie Guil- lion of Philadelphia are again domiciled at the studio in Dock sq. which they have occupied for sev- eral seasons.

Frederick Lebrun, an artist with Mrs. Lebrun, have taken one of the Cleaves studios on Pigeon Hill for a stay into September.

J. Eliot Enneking of Brookline and Rockport, is holding an exhibi- tion of his oil paintings at the Fire- side Studio, 7 Dock sq., Rockport, from July 6 to September 15, daily

from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. except Sun- days. The public is cordially in-

vited to attend the exhibition. There are many local scenes of Gloucester and Rockport to be

shown, Connecticut

also Mystic, and Kearsarge, New Hampshire. Among the paintings to be on

display are as follows: “Moat Mountain,” “The Spirit of Spring,” “Motif No. 1,” “Gloucester Inner Harbor,” and many other paintings of interest. Mr. Enneking is also represented by his work at Rock- port Art Association, North Shore Arts Association, Gloucester So- ciety of Artists, Bearskin Neck Gallery, Barn Door and the Art Mart in Rockport.

The pages of our years,

God grant they read the good, with smiles,

GOOD OLD TOWN OF ROCKPORT

Extends Welcome Hand To Summer Residents --- Taxes Lowered $3.00 For Current Year --- Fame As Summer and Permanent Home Grows

ROCKPORT BY J. ELIOT ENNEKING

SS DODD ODDO Gn En tin ti tn tp ti tin tin tip tin tin ti tin tin ti in ti tin ti tin ti tia i tin i di di dis Ai di tii di tn tn i i tn i i i i ns nn i a a

ROCKPORT SEEMS TO BE on the down grade in the right way. The assessors announce that they have re- duced the rate of taxation from $36 to $33 for the current season. This is the lowest since 1933 when the rate was $30.

The descent has not been easy, but the manner in which it has been ac- complished may furnish an example to all communities, great and small.

Originally all Cape Ann was the town of Gloucester, but in 1840 the northeastern section thought it best to get set off by itself, and the “harbor,” as Gloucester proper was known at the time, offered no protest. So in four years more the town may, in mid-Sum- mer, observe its centennial as a cor- porate entity if it so desires and it probably does.

The principal occupation has in the long run been fishing. Lacking an in- closed harbor the main part of the

populace either berthed their boats at Annisquam or sometimes at Little Good Harbor as circumstances placed them.

However, its citizens energetically looked ahead to establishing manufac- turing. Accordingly a large cotton duck mill—to furnish sails for the Glou- cester fleet—was built, and a colony of skilled weavers brought over from Eng- land. This burned flat Dec. 9, 1883, and was never rebuilt. Smaller indus- tries, such as an organ factory, ising- glass, from fish sounds, and others came into existence, but the great boost ahead came after the Civil War when the demand for building material opened up the quarries, some 600 men being em- ployed in the most prosperous times. But strange to say in the most prosper- us era of the building trade, the 1920- 30 decade, these quarries as a working concern practically went out of exist- ence. Since then no major occupation has come in to take its place.

Augmented by the abnormal welfare costs, the citizens faced one of the most difficult problems of any in the state. They rallied and took stock. “What have we as an asset?” The observing made answer. ‘One of the most beau- tiful stretches of seashore for Summer and permanent homes in the state, the possibilities of which are _ scarcely scratched.”

Welcomed Summer People

For several years past, retired people, those with incomes, had discovered in Rockport just the ideal conditions of living they desired for the Autumn of life. '

Here was the answer, said the towns- people: “Let’s join hands with these people, make them welcome as neigh- bors, and induce them to bring in their friends.” And they went ahead along that line.

The town for some years had an ad-

Cape ANN SHORE, July 10, 1936

visory committee which passed upon the articles involving expenditure of money proposed in the annual warrant which were pared down and its recom- mendations always followed in the main,

This season the committee was vir- tually dominated by a Summer comer who had just become a permanent resi- dent. The motto was to pare down and get down to a_ pay-as-you-go system without stretching economy into parsi- mony. Its recommendations were adopt- ed without ado with the resultant de- crease in taxes. For example the po- lice wanted a cruising car with radio equipment. Granted it was a good thing but it must wait for a later date. And so down the line to a decrease of $3 per thousand.

In the past five years the Summer resident interest in Rockport has grown steadily. More and more the little pitched roofed colonial bungalows known as Cape Cod houses but which are nu- merous and perhaps indigenous to Cape Ann have been purchased by those who, closing a business career, seek a town where conditions are quiet and to their liking. At present the ratio of Summer resident real estate valuation is as three to one for the permanents, about the same as in Gloucester.

So, pointed in the direction of mak- ing their shore acres more desirable from every standpoint to the outsider who comes either for a Summer or permanent home, the citizens are bend- ing every effort to develop the bounti- ful excess of natural beauty which they have as an asset to its highest possi- bility, and it has taken occasion in this matter of the constituency of its ad- visory board, to show that this feeling is no empy gesture and they are not out “to soak the rich’ supposedly person who comes down for a Summer or per- manent home.

In 1884 the people realizing that if a big seawall could be built their harbor would become one of the finest in the world put the project over. This work undertaken and about a third com- pleted was abandoned some 25 years ago by advice of the army engineers and a hard blow struck at the interests of the town.

Yankee Town

In consequence Rockport remains a typically “Yankee” town as regards population. The directory and town officials contain the names in increasing numbers of the descendants of early settlers. The opening of the stone quarries brought in more reecnt years large numbers of Swedish and later of

the Finnish peoples—all literate to a high degree in their own languages and English also. They are not much given to office seeking but blend quietly into the productive activities of the town.

Recently an effort was made to in- terest the national Government into completing the unfinished breakwater. The argument advanced—and with some plausibility—was that if so many mil- lions were to be spent on Quoddy, Sandy Bay breakwater was equally deserving if not more so. Some $5,000,000 would have completed the breakwater and giv- en employment for several years to ev- ery unemployed stone worker on the cape.

The above mentioned summer resi- dents who officiated with such marked success was Mr. T. H. C. Gibb.

ST. JOHN’S FAIR

Beverly Farms

Even though the exact nature of the St. John’s Church fair on Thursday, July 30, is to be a deep, dark secret right up until the last minute, the heads of the various tables and other features have just been revealed. The rummage table, which always has a crowd around it, is under the super- vision of Mrs. W. Galbraithe Mitchell of Beverly aFrms. This table has such a fascination for most people that it was found necessary to add a great many assistants. All the wonderful vegetables from North Shore gardens will be sold by a group of ladies with Mrs. Charles K. Cummings in charge. It seems very appropriate that Mrs. Russell Burrage should head the flow- er table. The ‘‘useful and fancy” ar- ticles table is another popular one and the Women’s Auxiliary, with Mrs. Bradford H. Burnham at the head, has charge of this. Mrs. Thomas Barbour will be at te chake and candy table, and Miss Eleanor Coolidge, with a group of friends, is to be debu- tante cigarette-and-balloon salesgirl.

On that day every one might just as well plan to stay all day and lunch in the cafeteria which will be run by Mrs. Henry Lee; while still on the food subject lighter refreshments are to be served by the girls’ club of the church. One always finds a most unique and intriguing grab bag at this fair, and this year Miss Frances Fab- yan is in charge of it. Games for all the shore children and some that will even fascinate their elders, are to be sold by Mrs. Bayard Warren.

Books and more books will go like lightning with Mrs. Lyon Weyburn at the head of this department. The en-

tertainment and “features” all the ideas for various costumes and out of the ordinary things, will be direct- ed by Mrs. Nathaniel S. Simpkins. Mrs. Gordon Abbott, Jr., has quite a job on her hands with the placing of posters and notices in all the stores in the vicinity, while at the head of the publicity department is Miss Elise Sortwell. Gardens

Another reminder is that there are just a few more days to wait until the twenty of the North Shore’s most beautiful gardens are to be opened to the public by the ladies of the North Shore Garden Club, with Mrs. W. En- dicott Dexter as chairman. * This is really a rare opportunity that no lover of gardens and places can afford to miss.

‘NEVER HAS the North Shore, es- pecially Cape Ann, looked as fresh and vernal; in few seasons has it been equalled. While other sections have been searéd by the blistering sun this promonotory thrust into the ocean has been laved by gentle rains and drenched by sea-fog all of which have contributed to the most luxuriant growth seen in many a year. Old Eng- land has been somewhat noted for its spring fogs but it has nothing on the Cape Ann sector of New England, well named in this respect. This is especially noticeable to the incoming people who make this section their home and the change and the cool sea air has been most welcome. Especially have the conditions favored the trees which appear thriftier than ever. What a combination, sea and shore, broad expanses of ocean and mile on mile of virgin woodland—sixteen snow-driven beaches—Cape Ann lit- erally windswept and sea-washed on all sides of the compass. Its roads and drives and countryside. Destined to be the summer and permanent home of a hundred thousand people ere the sands of the next twenty-five years have rolled down the neck of time’s hour glass. Fortunate they who may enjoy its privileges.
