Company of Leesburg, con-

installing the drainage piie.
Twin 42 inch pipes will be

providing a catch basin and a

water simply has no place to

The project also utilizes the

how it is, when a you are hit with an extremely
traumatic experience; you tend to forget it until
you can cope with remembering.
Have you ever taken a four-year-old, an
eight-year-old and a nine-year-old, all rambunc-
tious and full of vinegar, to the ball game?
It's an experience.
There I was, up in the press booth trying to
keep notes on the football game and those three
wild Indians wanting to do everything from
joining the other kids in the end zone playing to
wanting to go to the rest room every 15 minutes.
I finally herded them into a booth where we
were all alone and tried to keep tabs on them that
way. One had to go to the rest room and the
others took him. When they got back, the
youngest was missing one shoe. They went to the
concession stand and came back empty-handed
and without their money. They had lost part of it.
They climbed up the walls, out the window, laid
down in the floor and watched people come into
the stadium through a crack, played cowboy and
The best way to describe them was that they
reminded me of three worms in a pan on top of a
hot stove.
And I couldn't find the button to turn the
stove off.

have heard it said, as I had,
that the Bible, the word of
God, answers all questions of
life. The above scripture ref-
erence is quoted often in
support of the relevancy of the,
Bible to man's need. In fact,
the Bible, God's word, must be
just as relevant today for your
need and my need as when it
was written under the inspi-
ration of the Holy Ghost (2
Peter 1:21).
It is very easy t6 say, "The
Bible is not specific. It does
not answer my need." The
problem is we don't really
read the Bible to find out if it
does indeed answer our need.
For a specific example look at
Psalm 75:6-7, "For promotion
cometh neither from the east
nor the west. nor the south.
But God is the judge: He

Christmas Cactus Is Still

Some plants ever lose their
popularity with home owners,
says Florida Nurserymen and
Growers Association (FNGA).
They are either easy to grow
or have some characteristic
that makes them endeared to
the hearts of their owner.
Such a plant is certainly the
Christmas cactus. It has been
Cherished by families at the
holiday season and almost
rated as a member of the
family. Grandma and all
grandmas before grew. a
Christmas cactus regardless
of where they lived. In the
middle western states, it was
not unusual for this plant to
occupy a very prominent
place in the sitting room".
When the winter cold de-
Sscended, more protection was
provided for this special plant
than for water pipes. Many
plants were enormous in size.
Most of them grown by the
"country folks" were fed with
a cow mature tea. Somehow
and in some way the plant
always appeared in flower at
the appointed time of Christ-
Totay the Christmas cactus
is still revered as a holiday
plant. At this time of year
most good gardeners are
beginning to feed their plants
regularly. It is moved into
very bright light to help
produce the maximum
amount of leaves and later
flower buds.
Professional nurserymen
specialize in growing this
Lovely plant. They have hy-
bridized it and the colors are
very much different from the
pink of grandma's day. Most
of "the plants are grown in
small plastic square pots in an
artificial soulless mixture. The
plant is very healthy when
purchased. One nurseryman
in Apopka produces hundreds
of thousands of plants for sale
at :the holiday season. When
caled for properly, the plant
ma'y become an heirloom in a
family. Two rules. should be
observed when attempting to
make a Christmas cactus

I Holiday
bloom-provide it with very
short days by placing it in a
dark room early in the
evening. Seconidly, the plant
should be watered and fed
regularly to promote growth
and flowering. Once the plant
has become established, it is
not necessary to repot it until
the entire pot is jammed with
Another plant that has be-
come a standby in the tiniest
Sof apartments or in the largest
of mansions is the African
violet. Undoubtedly there are
more African violets grown as
house plants than any other
one type. Of course, more
foliage plants can be found,
but African- violets have
beautiful flowers as well as
foliage. The plant does not like
strong light for good growth. It
should never be watered from
the top. If the leaves become
wet from watering, they will
have large unsightly brown
spots. African violets are easy
to propagate which adds to
their popularity.
A plant forgotten for many
years is called Sinningia. It is
now coming back. Some of the

new hybrids are very exotic.
The flowers are produced in
many colors, all being very
exotic. The leaves are much
larger than African violets
leaves. The plant belongs to
the same family. However,
Senningias are much easier to
grow, says Florida Nursery-
men and Growers Association
(FNGA). They will grow in
much stronger light and are
not as picky about watering. If
you have not tried growing

30 Highway Deaths Are Predicted

Traffic accidents will
claim the lives of 30 people
in Florida during the

iod unless motorists and

extra effort to prevent

Patrol said this week.
"The countdown begins
at 6-00 p m., Wednesday,

November 23 and ends

ber 27." according to Col.
Eldridge Beach. director of
the Patrol.
Last year. 33 traffic
fatalities wer recorded dur-
ing the 102 hour period.
The Thanksgiving holi-
da. period is one of the

heaviest traffic holidays of
the year and highways'will.
be jammed with motorists
headed for visits with
friends.and relatives to
enjoy the traditional "tur-
key and trimmings.'."
The Patrol urged motor-
ists, who plan to 'travel
.during this time to leave
home with a planned trip

and to be certain that
plenty of time .inllowed
for a safe return trip home.
"To help avoid becoming.
a holiday statistic, main-
tain a safe speed at all
times, follow at a safe
distance, watch for no.pas-
sing zones and avoid drink-
ing when you drive," con-
cluded Colonel Beach.

When your vehicle parts have worn out,
you've probab', learned to head for your local
NAPA store for top quality replacements. But
what do you do when something on your vehi-
cle needs machine work?
The answer is the same. Your local NAPA
store features a machine shop that offers a
long list of machine work equal in quality to
NAPA parts.
Your NAPA machine shop can grind your
valves, turn your brake drums, repair ignition
and distributor units, rebore and rebuild
engines, press axle bearings and much more.
Top quality repair work and top quality NAPA
parts spell more miles for your car and more
savings for you. So check with your NAPA.
store for both parts and machine work.
