The well-cared-for landscape that once enhanced the Joppatowne Swim Club is now a picture of neglect.The loudspeaker that used to summon the start of adult swims and hail club members to the basket room dangles from a rusting pole. The swimming pool that provided Joppatowne residents 28 summers of relaxation, exercise and a community meeting place has been taken up by several types of fowl as their makeshift sanctuary.The sounds of lifeguards' whistles and children frolicking don't fill the air this summer at the Joppatowne Swim Club.

To storyteller Mary Carter Smith, there was a oneness of all races. "We are one family," she often told her audiences, "and a family has a good time when we come together." Called a folklorist, entertainer and the Mother Griot, the former Baltimore schoolteacher and librarian became nationally known as she helped popularize traditional African stories, dress and songs to American audiences and students after visiting Ghana nearly 40 years ago. Ms. Smith, who was 88, died of renal failure Tuesday at the Genesis Eldercare Cromwell nursing home in Towson.

She's known as "Mother Griot" or "Mother Mary," and for most of her 87 years, Mary Carter Smith, a professional storyteller, has been entertaining children and adults with tales she has collected from Africa, Ireland and the Appalachians. "Actually it's a French word that is pronounced gree-oh rather than gree-ott," said the retired schoolteacher and librarian the other day, who was named Baltimore's griot in 1983, and state griot in 1991. Born in Birmingham, Ala., she was raised in Youngstown, Ohio, and Baltimore.
