ener The rolling lawns and the landscaped acres surrounding the Grapeview home of the Gene La Berge family is awaiting, under the tender touch of springtime, the green-thumbery of 13-year-old John, the family gardening genius. For as long as he can remember, John has found a fascination in the propagation of plants. He has always delighted in the salvaging of pruning discards, which he promptly rooted and potted up and nurtured into healthy specimens. In a sunny basement window on a long low table he now has his future garden in its infant stage. Sturdy young tomato plants rub shoulders with husky little cucumbers and many sorts of flowers. John was born in Tacoma, where the family has lived until coming to this area three months ago. His father is a tile setter. A seventh grader in North Mason School, John plays drums in the school band. A drum set and a piano in the home lend themselves to family jam sessions. tte has four brothers.
