Woodcarving and public speaking. Odd combination?
Ask Professor William R. Sutherland, whose

He did beautiful work and it was

youngster. My first product was a
library table made at the age of
twelve, which I gave to my mother.
It is still around home somewhere.
Woodcarving has been my hobby in
my spare time for about thirty
years. My wife and I make our

"A tweeledee or tweeledum attitude in anything written or spoken

The Courier-Journal- 's
one of his pupil's famous "courthouse steps" speeches, printed a
statement that anyone with the
