HODJAPASHA ART and CULTURE CENTER,RUMI,The name Mevlana Celaleddin-i Rumi stands for Love and ecstatic flight into the infinite. The Mevlevi, or Mevleviye, one of the most well-known of the Sufi orders, was founded in 1273 by Rumi's followers after his death, particularly his son, Sultan Veled Celebi (or A‡elebi, Chelebi) in Konya , from where they gradually spread throughout the Ottoman Empire. The Mevlevi Order is also linked to other Dervish orders such as the Qadiri (founded in 1165), the Rifa'i (founded in 1182), and the Kalenderis. Following a recommended fast of several hours, the whirlers begin to rotate on their left feet in short twists, using the right foot to drive their bodies around the left foot.
The Mevlevi Sema Ceremony is proclamated as an INTANGIBLE WORLD HERITAGE in Traditional performing art social practices themes by UNESCO in October 2005. It was Christmas of 1939, and Ida and Viola, my two sisters, were working in Salt Lake City.
The next thing I knew I received a letter from Ida telling me of her experience that morning. The LaGrande 2nd Ward, of which I was a member and from which I was leaving for my Mission, gave me a farewell party as we customary in those days.
My brother Alex and his wife had not been to the Temple to have their marriage sealed since she had joined the Church a few years before. Those of us going down to Salt Lake were Alex and Mildred, their two sons, Richard and Gerald, my sister Viola, and Dorothy Richeson, a friend, and myself.
Then, Monday morning, I checked into the Mission Home on State Street for the two weeks training they gave all Missionaries prior to their leaving for their fields of labor.
Previous to my going on my Mission and during the time we were making plans to go, I had somewhat of a heavy feeling. Then, the morning of April 25th came and I found myself, along with all, or a lot, of the other Missionaries getting ready to leave on various trains for their mission fields. Upon arriving in Los Angeles, we were met at the Union Station by the District President of the Los Angeles District, Ferris R. Later in the afternoon, I took the Pacific Electric Train out to Belflower where I met Elder Archibald, my new companion. For the first few days of our stay in Belflower, I got to meet a lot of people who were members of the Branch. We often went with President Visser to Long Beach to Leadership meetings as that was their stake Headquarters. Of course, I was ready in the alloted time and on my way to Downey to work with Elder Ray Fransen.
Another interesting experience we had was one Sunday when they were having Stake Conference in the South Los Angeles Stake. After visiting with him all afternoon and again in the evening, after Conference was over, Theron took us home. In a couple of weeks we called back to see if she had read the book and to pick it up if she was through with it. After he left, we went out to Sister Mossa€™s place to break the news to her and her husband, because Elder Holt also was being transfered to Compton, California, and there would be no missionaries in Downey at all. Saturday morning, October 12, President Hagey, my District President, came to Downey to take me to Los Angeles to report to President MacDonald for my instructions about the new district. While in Los Angeles getting instructions from the President, I got to visit some with the other missionaries at headquarters. President Hagey and I stayed in Los Angeles that night and the next morning he drove me out to Riverside, which I greatly appreciated, as I did not have a car then. We soon moved our headquarters of the Mission (District) to a better location, and the Missionaries started coming into the District. As soon as I had assigned all of the Elders to their various fields of labor, I wrote to all the Branch Presidents in the District to introduce myself. One of the outstanding experiences I had in that District was holding Cottage Meetings in Hemitt. Needless to say, I was a little nervous also with the minister sitting in the back of the living room staring at me. A few months later, after I had been transferred up to the Bakersfield District, I received a letter from President Choate, saying that the Rev. I remember the Easter Sunrise Service we held in Hemitt that year as a District Conference. With two carloads of missionaries from our district plus one carload from the mission office, for we invited them out to speak at our conference, plus all of the people from over the district, we had a real conference. At the end of the first month I was out in Riverside, which was the day before I was to expect Mr.
About a month later I was down in the Los Angeles area and went out to call on them for a visit.
On one of those subsequent visits I remember telling her that I hated to see them wasting their time outside of the Church. Once, President Durham wrote to me to see if I would come down and speak in the Downey Branch for their Sacrament Meeting.
She had originally resigned as pastor of the local United Brethren Church there in Holiday, California when she first decided to join ours; then after backing out of being baptized she went back and accepted the position again. With this introduction, they all commenced talking at once telling me what a bad thing I was doing, disturbing people who were happy in their own religion until they heard me.
The last time I saw her in the mission field was about three months before I was to be released to go home.
While in Riverside, I had the privilege of baptizing a Sister James and her six children into the Church. I have surely been blessed to have the opportunity to meet many of my friends from the mission field. Another interesting experience was when President Blood (Verna€™s next Mission President) called me into his office one day to talk about the Imperial Valley District. Once, when I had gone down there to take over the office from President Burton, I toured the district and visited all the branches in it. While down there we accompanied one of the local brethren over to Yuma, Arizona to the branch there to speak in Church.
I met some wonderful friends down in the Imperial Valley; President Cyril Gardner, and President Lunsford of the El Centro and Brawley Branches. It was here we met and stayed with a wonderful family by the name of Arthur Lee {LNa€™s note: This man, Arthur Lee was a first cousin to Rhoda Jane Perkins Wakefield, being a descendant of Mosiah Hancock}. At this time of my life my hair was getting pretty thin in front, and in her conversation she turned to Elder Richards and asked him if he was out of high school. As the month of June was drawing to a close, I received a letter from President Blood transferring me up to organize a new district in Bakersfield, California. They immediately started to explain to me that a€?Eldera€? was not their name, that it was their title. Both Elders Grant Fisher and Glen Sorenson turned out to be really good missionaries and both served as District Presidents before their missions were finished.
That evening I held a meeting with the missionaries and gave them their assignments as to where they would labor. After all the elders were assigned and working, I took three Elders with me and drove to Bishop. One day the two Lady Missionaries who were working out in Oildale, came in to the office asking if I would go the next week with them to a Cottage Meeting they had scheduled. We met regularly every week with her in her home and enjoyed the Spirit of the Lord to a very great degree. It had grown into a habit each week that after our subject matter was completed and we had taught them that part of the Gospel plan we had decided on, that Dorothy would bring in some sort of refreshment such as pie and ice cream. When I arrived in San Francisco it was raining and nearly evening by the time I found the Mission Home. That night and the next day I spent time with President Ellsworth outlining what he had in mind for me to do.
On my way up to San Francisco I received a letter as I was going through Bakersfield, from Clayton M. The last week of my Mission, after having visited all of the districts in the Mission except Reno, Nevada, President Ellsworth called me into his office for a visit. Then, he told me to go to Reno, Nevada, hold the Conference there and instruct the Missionaries. I was in Reno, Nevada when my release took effect, and with instruction to stop in Salt Lake to be set apart as a Counselor in the Bishopric, it would not allow for me to go back down to Bakersfield to baptize Dr. The next morning, which was Sunday, I went out to go to Church with my sister and brother-in-law, Paul and Helen Zaugg. The first of the week, or Monday morning, I went into the Church Offices to be interviewed and report my mission.

She told them if they would just listen to me I could explain everything. She had a sister who had been at her home a couple of times when we were there teaching them. Button asked me when I entered with Elder Crandall was, a€?If I should decide I wanted to join your church and asked to, would I have to deny all the spiritual experiences I have had?a€? My answer to her was, a€?Our Church was founded on revelation, which in, and of itself, is a highly spiritual experience.a€? That seemed to strike her very pleasantly and that night we started a very congenial, friendly relationship.

During the Ottoman period, the Mevlevi order spread into the Balkans, Syria, and Egypt (and is still practiced in both countries where they are known as the Mawlawi order).

She said she didna€™t want to have anything to do with the Church, but as she had a brother in the mission field she wanted to do something for us because of him. The Bosnian writer Mesa Selimovic wrote the book Death and the Dervish about a Mevlevi dergah in Sarajevo. From the 1990s, restrictions were eased and private groups re-emerged who try to re-establish the original spiritual and intimate character of the Sema ceremony.
Moss came over to the door and took my hand, in their presence and with tears in her eyes told me, in a voice loud enough for them all to hear, how bad she felt for me, a servant of God, being persecuted in her home.

Seuss’s lovable elephant, Horton, has been the star of the week with Horton Hears A Who and Horton Hatches An Egg.

They stared at the bright green scrambled eggs on their plates and took a little nibble then  a big bite. Formerly there had been a big cotton farming operation in the area supporting two cotton gins. Soon all the eggs were gone but the children discovered that just like in the book you don’t know if you like a food until you try it.

Large Group Activities teach children cooperation, taking turns, and how to use good social and communication skills with others. Little happened during the week; school, church, gardening, cleaning yards and a few social club meetings.

Occasionally a theatrical company would come to town and help the community put on a production of some kind. Jewish community have lived in the geographic area of Asia Minor for more than 2,400 years. Among the other things you did for entertainment or diversion was to go to Gainesville to see the movies. In the later Middle Ages, Ashkenazi Jews migrating to the Byzantine Empire and Ottoman Empire supplemented the original Jewish population of Asia Minor. There were two theaters in Gainesville; the Florida Theater on University Avenue and the Ritz (Or Lyric) Theater near the post office. At the end of the 15th century, a large number of Sephardic Jews fleeing persecution in Spain and Portugal settled in Asia Minor on the invitation of the Ottoman Empire.
One of the cool things about going to tlie movies in Gainesville; they were air conditioned. Despite emigration during the 20th century, modern day Turkey continues a Jewish population.The present size of the Jewish Community is estimated at around 26,000 according to the Jewish Virtual Library. The vast majority live in Istanbul, with a community of about 2,500 in A°zmir and other smaller groups located in the rest of Turkey.

Frankly, it's been only out of respect for my parents that I never legally changed my name.
Okay, with that behind us, let's see what my dad, at the age of 97, now recalls about the old days in Alachua. His station was at the southernmost rail line running by Copeland Sausage Company and Ennis Motor Company. Leland manned the Seaboard station just a few yards from Papa Waters' Coastline station on the south end of town. David manned another Coastlme station, known as "East Alachua," which was located up by the current location of US 441. The old road tfiat comes in under the railroad overpass and then turns north at Main Street was the original US 441 . Passengers traveling to High Springs would disembark in Alachua and look for other transportation to High Springs. As results were telegraphed in, he would give them to my dad (Beb), who would "run" them to City Hall, where a large board displayed the latest election information. The center of town in those early days was just north of the Seaboard tracks, on the southern end of Main Street, as I think of it today. Mott's blacksmith shop was just up the street from the barber shop of Willie Cauthen (Hal's dad). One of tfie hotels, The Hawkins House, later named the Skirvin Hotel, was just south of the southernmost railroad tracks. Large bowls and platters of meats, potatoes, vegetables and breads were placed on the tables and the guests would pass them around just like at a large family gathering. I recall one summer when Dad and I were "batching" and he and I ate there quite often.
Living in town, we enjoyed the convenience of regular home delivery of the block of ice needed to keep food in the box cool.
The old man who delivered the ice was named Lige, but I don't recall the name of the horse that pulled the wagon. The best-known train that ran through town was named "Peggy." Peggy was a Seaboard train that ran from Staike through Bell to Wannee, where the train would turn around and retrace its route. I recall a story that now escapes Dad's memoiy about what his mom and the other Waters mothers would do from time to time when the kids got under foot.
Since all three moms in the Waters clan had access to the railroad, they could use "Peggy" to occupy the kids for a few hours. Simply put the kids on the train when it arrived from Starke, and they would be out of the way for a few hours while riding down to Wannee and back.
I remember at least one occasion when my cousins Larry, Johnny Dampier, Lano (Delano), maybe Clara Nell, and I made that trip. Since all the "big boys" (older cousins) got off during the temporary stop, of course I did too. As the runt of the lot, I was the last to grab for the hand rail when the train started moving, and I almost had a very long walk back to Alachua. Other entertainment for Waters boys: Ventures into Warren*s Cave were treacherous in Dad's day. He says they had no flashlights, so they took "fat pine" sticks to light up, once they were deep enough to need a light source. Dad recalls one occasion when the circus was in town and some of the horses got loose just as a train was passing though. It was an outdoor theater composed of a billboard-type screen and rows of logs for the audience to use for seating.
The show was located in a vacant lot on the east side of Main Street, approximately one block south of the main downtown intersection, where the First National Bank was located for many years.
Marbles were a lot less expensive than the electronic devices kids have for entertainment today.
So was everything else! Bland Horse Races 1944  By Kent Doke:The Bland horse races actually started in Haynesworth in the summer of 1944 when Paul Emery and I raced our horses on the straight graded road North of Hollingsworth. I had borrowed an English saddle to race with and when we jumped off, the right stirrup leather came off the safety catch and was dragging. I couldn't get it off my foot and was afraid the horse would step on it and drag me off I always claimed that was why I lost the race and it was why I rode bareback in all the races to follow. Somehow Jessie Shaw got involved and we started having horse races in Bland every Wednesday afternoon after school. At that time people not in the service were making more money than they had ever made in their life. No cars were being made during the war so people rode with each other to the nearest entertainment. What is now County Highway 241 that runs out from Alachua to the Santa Fe River was at that time a seldom graded road. In the late thirties and early forties this new road was being cut using only mules and convict labor.
I still remember the guards with shotguns loaded with buckshot guarding the prisoners as they drove the two mule teams pulling small drag buckets of dirt.
Jessie really got into the racing; he would grade one quarter mile of the road using a tractor and a grader he bought.
He cut the fence so cars could be parked on the West side of the road and, at it's peak, we would have about 250 people out to see the races. I raced my own horse, The Santa Fe River Ranch entered a horse, Jessie raced a horse, Roy Ceilon, J.
Once George Duke brought a race horse and jockey with a jockey saddle in to race against Roy's horse. We were very lucky to win that race and did so only because the jockey couldn't control the horse at the start.
About fifty years after the races had stopped I asked Roy how much he thought was bet on those races and he said probably about twenty five hundred dollars. Also about fifty years later I was introduced to an old lawyer in Gainesville who asked me if I had ever ridden horses in the Bland Races. Makes me feel good, even now. Aiachua High School Memories  Charles Beverly (Beb) Waters Class of 1930 The Alachua Indians played football on a field that was right next to the school rather than down the hill from the grammar school. The offense was the Notre Dame Box, The quarterback lined up about four feet behind the center and had a fullback lined up a few feet behind him.
The other two halfbacks were lined up on their left (or right), stacked one behind the other to form a square box.
The QB would take a direct snap and then hand off to one of the backs or drop back to pass. And yes, we wore leather helmets and had drab brown canvas pants; and the jerseys were whatever you could find and had no numbers.
Alachua didn't have a good punter, so Marion Pearson would try to throw a long Interception rather than try a weak punt. The Big Rival was the High Springs Sandspurs, at least until around 1929 when we had "the Big Fight" playing in High Springs, The referee that night was a prominent High Springs doctor (Whitlock?), maybe even the mayor. Emotions were running high, and an intense argument between players, coaches and the referee ended in a Big Fight when Jessie Shaw knocked the referee out cold and the townspeople charged the field. I prudently ran for the car. As a result of the fight, the teams didn't play each other again for a number of years (20?).
School buses couldn't be used for game trips, so townspeople would drive the players, Barney Cato was a rural mail carrier and had a son on the squad.
The school buses back then were Model A trucks with a row of seats down each side and a bench down the middle.
A long one story building was in its' place containing eight classrooms and a big auditorium. One big event of that year was a class play about the Pilgrims Thanksgiving and with the Indians. One day a student walked behind her, on the way to the restroom, and kicked the chair out from under Miss. I had to wear glasses beginning in the seventh gi'ade, so did not participate in sports much. Perhaps the biggest event in our High School lives was the Junior and Senior theatrical productions. The Junior class play was usually produced in the fall and the Senior class play in the spring. Wq were excused from classes to climb into a ton and a half truck to go load scrape iron from some garage or farm. Som.eone asked her a question and she answered, "just a minute, I have the answer right here in my drawers". So, if you could manage to leave the Supply room unlocked, you then had to find a classroom window unlocked.
In closing I have always told anyone who asked, my years at A H S was comparable to the Tom Sawyer story.
One gin was in the middle of town on a spur railroad track of the SAL and one on the south end of town on SAL's mainline. There was visiting with friends, getting haircuts and other amenities of life that you hadn't done in weeks or months.
Frankly, it's been only out of respect for my parents that I never legally changed my name. Okay, with that behind us, let's see what my dad, at the age of 97, now recalls about the old days in Alachua. Leland manned the Seaboard station just a few yards from Papa Waters' Coastline station on the south end of town. The old man who delivered the ice was named Lige, but I don't recall the name of the horse that pulled the wagon.
I recall a story that now escapes Dad's memoiy about what his mom and the other Waters mothers would do from time to time when the kids got under foot. I couldn't get it off my foot and was afraid the horse would step on it and drag me off I always claimed that was why I lost the race and it was why I rode bareback in all the races to follow. He cut the fence so cars could be parked on the West side of the road and, at it's peak, we would have about 250 people out to see the races. Once George Duke brought a race horse and jockey with a jockey saddle in to race against Roy's horse. We were very lucky to win that race and did so only because the jockey couldn't control the horse at the start. Alachua didn't have a good punter, so Marion Pearson would try to throw a long Interception rather than try a weak punt.
