?,A--The MMakd New#, Thumky April 2, 1981 sl Saturday is election day. It is the day set aside for us, as in- dividual Americans, to decide which route our local governmen- ts will take during the ensuing months. It is the day set aside for us to assure ourselves that we will always have the right to vote. It is the day for us, as Americans, to continue the tradition set forth by our forefathers to determine our own fate by selecting our leadership. M By Ann Ann- " dering Rounsavall Other working mothers probably, Benny is not. I looked up from my desk It is a day to set aside indifference and apathy and to assume from time to time, face most of the the responsibility that provides us with our rights, problems that I face.

Lort spent Monday morning writing notes of in- struction for the rest of us so that we could carry on in her absence, getting as much work as possible done while waiting for a mid-morning report from the babysitter on Rendi's condition. Sure enough, the call came, and Lori was off to the doctor with her sick baby. An understandable problem that we all have had from time to time. We were sympathetic. Benny Rogers was in the office the other day discussing how we would cover the upcoming Little Dribbler Tournament being held in Malakoff this weekend. It was late in the afternoon, after school hours, when the telephone rang. "It's for you, Ann," Lori said. I listened for a few minutes while Amy explained to me the problem at my home. "Get Chad on the telephone," I told her. Benny, of course, was only hearing my side of the conversation. "Get everybody off the top of the house," I told Chad in my sternest voice. "There are other places to play and I don't want to hear of you being up there again, much less with a bunch of boys with you." Loft is used to hearing my side of conversations with my children, but and he was falling out on the sofa in my office....laughing. "Oh, I love it," be said while gasping for breath through hysterical laughter. I didn't try to explain. The little he had heard of the phone conversation was enough for him to figure out what was happening. What I didn't tell him, though, was what Amy had said to me in initiating the conversation. She didn't say, as one might expect, that some of the boys might be hurt if they continued to play chase on top of our home, or that they might damage shingles running around up there. "Mother," she said, "Chad and about 12 other boys are running around on top of our house and they are making so much noise I can't sleep." The witnesses to my phone conver- sation that afternoon left me sitting at my desk feeling somewhat less than professional, all businesslike and com- petent. I have a feeling though, from Benny's understanding of the situation, t Bobble Rogers may have received a phone call or two in his younger years: April 5 thru 11 O QUESTI()NS AND ANSWERS SOCIAL SECURITY By Jimmy VanBevers Tyler District Manager Social Security Administration Q.

James Chandler, area forestry specialist for the Texas Agricultural Extension Service, says that pine tip moths are beginning to appear in Christmas tree plantations and urges producers to keep a close watch and apply insecticides at the appropriate time. Dr. George Phllley, Extension area plant pathologist, says that now is the time to start spraying roses for diseases. A regular spray schedule should be maintained on rcees to prevent severe damage by diseases. Several fungicides are approved for this purpose. It now appears that a good peach crop is being set in East Texas orchards. Philley-urges producers, or large, to maintain a schedule for both diseases that attack peaches.
