My first encounter with glass insulators was in 1974 when my husband, Burt, brought home a cardboard box full of them. Some poles had been down several months next to his plant and some one was going to chop them up, so he took the glass globs knowing I'd find some use for them. Well I did, my daughter was deep in mac- rame at that time and she made several hangers for them and we sold them in our arts and craft shop, leaving about a dozen for us, in the same box, now in the boat shed. While visiting Canton's First Monday, I found several dealers had them, and then thought of mine. What exactly is an insu- lator? Its a gadget, usually glass or ceramic, used on Lu Ten Nape Manganese added to the for- mula made clear insulators that changed to various shades of purple after ex- posure to the sun atop tele- phone poles. There are dif- ferent shades of aqua, am- bers, greens, blues, cobalt blues, olive ambers, and sun- colored amethyst, as well as white milk glass and a sort of iridescent carnival glass. If you are a collector you already know the jargon which the beginning insulator collector must master. Drip points, petticoats and trans- positions are three of the first terms you learn. Drip points are little drop-shaped points on the lower rim of an insulator. They are designed, as their name hints, to let the rain water drip off the in- sulator rather than run under it, where it might short circuit "Endangered Species." Craft workshops will be held the 22nd and 23rd, Clas- ses include liquid embro- idery, medicine bottle jewelry, glass ash trays, candleholders, yarn flowers, yarn kittens, burlap pillows, and Christmas angels. Show and Tell sessions are also planned. A Four Seasons Birthday party will highlight the first night's activities, and mem- bers will enjoy a western dance featuring square dancers from Athens on Tues- day night. additional rim or projection under the outer rim, put there for the same reason as the drip point. Single, double or triple refer to the number of these skirts or projections. Transposition insulators are used when it is neces- sary to stop the coiling effect of electricity traveling along the wire. The electricity builds up a coiling action, which gradually increases in size. If it isn't stopped the electricity will eventually spin off and be lost. Trans- position insulators were used to switch the electricity to another wire and this broke the coiling cycle.

Unfortunately, "Fred," the friendly basset hound who belongs to Lori and Hallie's grandparents, the Burr Ten Napels, also joined the fishing party and promptly ate the bait. The tearful fisher-tots trouped back to grandmother's kitch- en to report Fred's mis- behavior and ask for more bait. They had to make do with some canned corn with which to tempt the fish. Fred's attitude was that any- thing he finds in his terri- tory is "finders, keepers" and he eats it, buries it or rolls in it.

With the emboss- ing as in other fields such as stamps and coins, mistakes in the molds sometimes result in exceptionally valuable pieces which might otherwise be commonplace items. Words are sometimes misspelled, or letters reversed. Color is an important part of determining the value, and sand, soda and lime were the ingredients in most glass insulators. The amount of iron oxide in the sand deter- mines the shade of green. )Colllns Loather Hand Bog, Thermolac Outfit, Fred Lief ) Sportswear, Youth Beat Outfit, Henry Lee Dress.
