Cedar Lake Nursing Home By Sue Smalling Well, we had our Rock 'N' Roll Jam- our residents. They rocked, rolled, and boree last Friday. I'm not going to talk Miss Ida Whitehead and Frances Reid much about it because I think you can sang, Rosie Houston and Edgar read about it elsewhere in the paper.

What I really want to do is to pass out a few roses to the youth of our area. It seems that too often we read about the bad things the kids get into, never about the good that they do. The youth of the United Methodist Churches of both Trinidad and Malakoff, and of Providence Baptist Church in Tool got out and collected donations to the heart fund for us. This in addition to par- ticipating in school, basketball playof- fs, and all the things that keep our kids on the run. One special group of kids is called Hazel's Girls. These girls accep- ted donations in Trinidad and I am told that they just needed a few dollars to put them over the $100 mark on Friday and that they were running around on their milk break at school to get the needed funds. Tl ese girls help with things such as the R 'n' R Jamboree, but they are always gathering at Hazel's house to make cards for our residents or to practice some songs to sing for us. There are those folks who think thal our world is in bad shape, but I want tc say that as long as we have kids like these, the world is in safe bands. Thank you kids for helping us. Incidentally, we did not make our goal of $600 before Friday, but the kids want to try to make it up, so they will be taking donations for the heart fund for the next two weeks. I also want to thank Myrtle Cude for helping us. She and Hazel sure keep the enthusiasm for crazy stunts going in high gear.

Dr. George Philley, area plant pathologist for the Texas Agricultural Extension Service, says that some pear varieties are very susceptible to fire blight. If fire blight has been a problem in the past, spray the trees at full bloom with strep- tomycin sulfate or a copper containing fungicide such as Kocide 101 or Bor- deaux mixture. Also, when peaches and plums are at full bloom, apply a fungicidal spray. However, do not apply insecticide to the fruit trees at bloom state, recom- mends Dr. James Robinson, Extension area entomologist. The first insecticide application should be made at 75 per- cent petal fall. This first application is to control the plum curculio and cat- facing insects. The first three insecticide ap- pdate. plications are most important for con- pearing in East Texas witl~n IJ trolling these insects. The second insec- two to three weeks.
