Chances are that even the vet-
eran gardener may have some trou-
ble with indoor plants. A few tops
in diagnosing some common plant
ailments are offered by Dr. E. W.
McElwee, head of the ornamental
horticulture department at the
University of Florida.
Brown tips or burned margins of
leaves could mean too much fertil-
izer, plant roots allowed to dry out
temporarily, wind-burn or cold in-
jury. Yellowing and dropping of
leaves hint that soil fumes, gas
fumes, chilling, over-watering, or
poor drainage and poor aeration
may be the trouble.
Small leaves indicate tight or
heavy soil, lack of fertilizer, or dry
soil. Weak growth or light green
or yellow color to healthy foliage
means either too intense light, lack
of fertilizer, root rot or possibly
root injury. Yellow, wilting or soft
growth could come from too much
heat or from root injury. Small
leaves, long internodes could be
from too little light or too high
Adding as little water and fertil-
izer as possible to keep the plants
healthy and slow growing contrib-
utes to the success of indoor plants.
Dr. McElwee says that during win-
ter 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.
During the winter dormant pe-
riod is a good time to transplant
trees and shrubs.
After selecting healthy plants
with good roots and tops, the next
step is preparing the planting site.
For bed plantings, such as roses,
dig in four pounds of complete fer-
tilizer per 100 square yards of
For a tree or a shrub dig a hole
one-third larger in diameter than
the plant's roots. Mix a cup of fer-
tilizer and a generous quantity of
peat in the top soil. Place the plant
in the hole slightly lower than it
grew in the nursery.
Fill in around the plant with the
soil-peat-fertilizer mixture. When
the hole is half filled, settle the
loose earth with water and repeat
the watering when the space
around the plant is filled and

FRANKLIN OPENED NEW SPAN
JOINING MAINLAND TO ISLAND
Tallahassee The new $3.3-mil-
lion Bryant Patton bridge joining
St. George Island with the Franklin
County mainland took place last
Friday at 7 a. m.
Construction of the 4.6-mile
bridge over Apalachicola Bay be-

St. George Island is a narrow,
30-mile-long beach island on which
homesites are being developed.
About 40 homes are there now.
The developer, St. George Island

towards the cost of the bridge. A
county-operated ferry service was
discontinued to coincide with the
new bridge opening.
Tolls for the $3.3-million, 4.6-

Have You Asked Yourself
Why should you travel extra miles and use u
extra hours to shop out of town?
ANSWER: You Shouldn't! You can save time,
gas and trouble by shopping right here in your
hometown stores. Furthermore, modern distribu-
tion brings the newest merchandise here as fast as
anywhere and lower overhead costs than in larger
places helps keep prices DOWN.
HOW can this community grow and prosper,
provide career opportunities for our young people,
unless hometown folks spend most of their money
here at home?
ANSWER: It can't! Dollars spent away are gone
forever. Dollars spent here stimulate local trade
activity, finance business expansion and increase
Where is the money coming from to maintain
and improve our schools, civic services, our churches
hospital, and other community facilities?
ANSWER: Much of it must come from taxes paid
and contributions made by our local business peo-
ple. Part of every dollar you spend helps build a
better community for you.

3. To LIVE soberly, righteously, and Godly in this present world. Titus 2:12.

Benefits To Student
The 1965 Social Security amend-
ments made many changes in the
Social Security program. "One ma-
jor change provides for the pay-
ment of benefits to a student up to
age 22 if he attends school full
time, is unmarried, and the child
of a retired, disabled, or deceased
worker," John V. Carey, Social Se-
curity District Manager in Panama
City, reported today.
If- payments were stopped be-
cause the student became 18, he
can have the monthly checks start-
ed again by filing a new applica-
tion. If the student is over 18, but
not yet 22, when one of his par-
eits became entitled to Social Se-
curity payments or dies, he may be
