However, they can still be removed up to late winter or early spring. New, weak canes should be removed, along with the old canes, and the good, strong canes should be left to bear fruit. If the cane removal is followed by mulching and a spray application for mites, the plants will produce thicker growth and larger buds, improving the fruit size and quality next year.

CALL COLLECTI ~t )-646 Materials for winter floral arrangements are almost unlimited. Flowers for drying should be picked at their peak of perfection, as they shatter if picked after their prime. Before they have a chance to wilt, the Extension Service advises, remove foliage from stems and tie in small bunches - 12 to 16 each. Hang them to dry in a dark, dry room, Warm Water Will Revive Cut Flowers Cut flowers last longer if properly handled. Newly cut flowers should be placed in a bucket of very warm water (110 degrees), so that the leaves and petals become crisp. Warm water is better than cold water for this purpose. Flowers that have wilted will revive the fastest if immersed entirely in l l0-degree water for an hour or two. Scum that may develop in the container interferes with water absorption, so keep the container clean. Commercial flower preservatives, added to water, provide chemical energy and slow down growth of micro-organisms. ST0 the flower heads down. Suggestions for types especially suitable for drying include: Cattail - pick before shattering starts. Spray with clear plastic, if necessary. Store in an upright container. Cockscomb-- cut at its most beautiful stage; hang until dry. Corn - use foliage, tassels and ears. Paint dried foliage gold or silver. Pull back the husks of corn ears and hang tassels to dry. Yarrow - hang when fully open. Spirea - gather at prime and hang. Strawflower - cut in bud and hang. Statice - cut when fully open, then hang. Delicate flowers may be preserved by the borax or silica gel method. These include clematis, cosmos, daffodils, gladiolus, hibiscus, lilies and peonies. The flowers must be freshly picked, with the foliage removed. Place blossom heads down in a box containing about 1 inch of a 50-50 mixture, of fine dry sand and borax. If silica gel is used, the sand is not necessary. Sift more of the mixture over and around each flower, being careful not to crumple petals. Varying lengths of time are required for drying. After treatment, store in dry boxes, using moth balls and a sprinkling of borax to protect flowers and foliage from insects. Transparent Plastic STORM STORM WINDOW KIT 39..

I think the world would be a better place if everyone remembered that all persons, everywhere, are basically pretty much the same." Dena paid a summer visit to an aunt and uncle in Washington, D.C. and met cousins for the first time. "It started me thinking along this line," she explained, "when I found that people there were just the same as those here at home." Miss Stracke is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles H. Smith of Dayton. She was born in Bremerton on March 16, 1954, and has an older brother, Curt, a Shelton High School graduate; a sister, Vicki, who is a SHS sophomore; and a sister, Eileen, a seventh-grader. "This is my first year on Pep Staff as cheer leader," Dena stated. She has been a Pep Club member for three years; she was treasurer of her sophomore class and is now senior class treasurer; she is representative for Girls Club; she was a member of the German Club in her junior year; she is a score-keeper; she was awarded a role in the Children's Theater production "The Little Princess". Advanced drama is Dena's favorite subject. She also studies civics, sociology and typing, and she is lab assistant for biology. Dena Stracke has been a member of the Rainbow Girls for four years, and is a junior past worthy advisor. She is vice-president of the Episcopal Youth Council. She held a vacation job at the Dairy Queen. "I really don't have time for hobbies," she declares, "but I love to water ski, to ride horses, and to walk in the woods." She appreciates the beauties of nature, and enjoys solitude. She reads extensively. "I plan to attend a junior college, and I want to major in communications," she says, "but I don't intend to decide on a career until I'm really sure of what I want to do with my life." ...~.""::~
