have no real regard for this edi-

our Christmas present.
Cox, one of our newer advertis-

ceived very good results. Buttram
agreed with him.
Then Buttram asked, "Well ken,
which page do you prefer for your
ad to be placed on?" Cox then
burst another of our shirt buttons

Even in this advanced
age with satellites in
orbit, sputniks and rockets
men of science still find
mystery in the Biblical Star
of Bethlehem that shone so
brightly when He was born.
Some scholars believe it
may have been a supernova,
or exploding star. Others
think it might have been a
comet or perhaps a conjunc-
tion of the bright planets
Jupiter and Saturn.
If it was a supernova in
the Milky Way, astrono-
mers say it would have un-
questionably filled ancient
stargazers with awe and the
feeling that a great event
might be taking place.
A "nova" implies a now
star, but actually is not. It
is rather an old star that
suddenly flares up in a dis-
play 20,000 to 50,000 times
brighter than the sun. A
supernova is about 100 mil-
lion times more brilliant
than the sun.
Astronomers do not know
what causes a supernova.
One theory is that the star's
supply of hydrogen becomes
exhausted. As the star con-
tracts, the core temperature
rises to 110 million degrees
centigrade. The incredible
temperature sets off helium-
fusion processes, and the
star becomes a huge nuclear
fusion reactor which even-
tually flies to pieces.

What to plant depends on condi-
tions within your home.
"Cast-iron" plants that will with-
stand abuse and adverse conditions
such as low light intensity and
warm, dry rooms include agaone-
ma, aspidistra, bromeliads, dracae-
na, monstera, pandanus, peperom-

Chances are that a year-round

trouble with indoor plantings, so
here are some tips on plant diagnu-
sis by Dr. E. W. McElwee, Univer-
sity 'of Florida ornamental horticul-
ture department head. ,
Brown tips or burned margins
of leaves indicate too muchi'ferti-
lizer, dried out plant roots,:';wind-
burn or cold injury. Yellowing and
dropping of leaves hint that the
soil fumes, gas fumes, chilling, ov-
er-watering, or poor drainage and
poor aeration may be the trouble.
.Small leaves indicate tight or
heavy soil, lack of fertilizer, or dry
Weak gowth 'or light green or
yellow color to healthy foliage
maens either 'too intense light, lack
of fertilizer, root rot or possibly
root injury. Small leaves, long in-
ternodes could be caused from too
little light or too high temperature.
Adding as little water and ferti-
lizer as possible to keep plants
healthy and slow growing contrib-
utes to the success 'of indoor plants.
Dr. McElwee says that during
winter months, or during cold dark
days, plants absorb much- less fer-
tilizer than during warm sunny
weather. He suggests adjusting fer-
tilizer applications to the season
of the year.
Insects and diseases attack in-
door and outdoor plants alike. Care-
ful inspection of plants regularly
will catch these intruders 'at the
first sign. This will do more toward
saving your plants than -all the
chemicals you use after a great
deal of damage is done.
!Some of the bugs you may find
on your house plants are red spi-
der mites, thrips, whiteflies,. mealy
bugs, scales and aphids. In general,
malathion spray applications at ten-
-day intervals, will stop -an insect
Diseases to look for are stem
ard crown rots, leaf spots, ,powdery
milderw and blight. The best treat-
ment for stem and crown rots is to
cut away -all the diseased tissue and
then spray with copper fungicides.
The leaf .spot can usually be chedk-
ed by removing the infected leaves
as soon as you spot them.
The mildews are controlled by
dusting the plants with sulphur.
Blight has no practical :.ure. The
best bet is to burn the plant before
the ailment spreads to other plants.

Governor Notifies All 49 States of
New Florida Driver License Law
TALLAHASSEE Florida driv-
ers traveling outside the state with
licenses showing an expiration date
of September, 1961, need have no
fears over arrest for possession of
an invalid license.
Gov. Farris Bryant has written
the governors of all 49 states ask.
ing that they notify their law en-
forcement personell of a new Flor-
ida law providing for two year. li-
cense renewals during the driver's
birth month. The transition from
the yearly expiration period to the
new system will not be complete
until after August, 1962.
Bryant -wrote the governors after
many Florida motorists reported
encountering difficulty in other
states carrying -a license that ap-
pears to have expired. Motorists
capn Qbtain a validation certificate
from .their county judge showing
the new license but it is not re-
Bryant said 45 of the governors
have responded, -assuring full co-
operation by their states in not de-
laying Florida motorists. Only Mis-
sissippi, New -Mexico, Oklahoma
and West Virginia have not been
heard from and Bryant said he
feels these states failed to respond
only .because they are circulating
his letter among law officers.
"The prompt and courteous re-
sponse given our request by nmy
fellow governors is typical of the
constant exchange of information
and continuous cooperation between
the states," Bryant said. "Few citi-
zens can realize, the many mutual
problems the states solve them-
selves without recourse to federal
or other authority. It has been in-
teresting to -note that most gover-
nors in. responding to our letter
spoke highly of the benefits of our
nrew licensing system."
ith reverent hearts we pay tribute to Him
S'n this Christmas and hope that His teachings qfPeac
n Earth and Good Will to Men will find expressioP
throughout the world. May your family enjoy th,,
many rich blessings of Christmas!

Because it is.built lower and wider
(closer to the-true running shape of a tire)
Gates Air-Float Deluxe low profile design
greatly reduces the major cause of tire wear
-scuffing of the tread caused by excessive
flexing as the tire runs. Heat, another enemy
of tire life, is also greatly reduced. That's
why this tire gives average drivers a bonus
of 5,000 miles or more-a fact proved by
more than 10 million miles of carefully re-
corded fleet tests.
