4 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE THURSDAY, APRIL 27, 1978 Bam Fund-Raising Continues I Falconer Smith Speaker at Garden Club Tree-Planting In honor of Arbor Day, April 14, the Shannondale Garden Club members planted a red leaf (acer rubrum) maple tree at the Blue Ridge Elementary School on Route 9. Mr. Van Camp, principal of the school, and representatives' from each class, were present and the children assisted in the planting aided by John Yar- brough, Humphrey Calder, Cecil May and John Blazek. Falconer Smith, guest speaker for the ceremony, explained that the first Arbor Day was declared by Sterling Morton in Nebraska on April 10, 1872, who later became Secretary of Agriculture. Its purpose was to impress upon people the im- portance of trees in the human environment. Smith further stated, the largest ,maple tree was discovered in 1976 in Michigan, 16' 3";in circumference and 125' tall. And the uses of maple wood are many and varied, such as furniture, floors, sport and athletic equipment and musical instruments, and countless others. He also singled out Frederick Law Olmsted, who was renown for his beautification of cities and suburbs by trees and plantings. He designed the grounds of Harvard, Yale JHU, the Natri0nal Zoo, Capital " Grounds, Biltmore Estate, and Central Park of New York City. Smith said we are following in his path to make these grounds beautiful. Before Morton started Central Park, he stated that "I had not been aware the park was such a nasty place. In fact, the low grounds were steeped in the overflow and mush of pig sties, slaughter-houses and bone- boiling works and the stench was sickening." Good living... ...when you StOp. working,.

What we want to gain is tranquility and rest to the mind." IIII II BLUE RIDGE ACRES Libby Cooper Dial 725-5925 I Irene and Talma Smith had their three youngest grand- children recently when they were on Spring vacation - Cheryl, Robert and Sharon. They had a great time fishing and kite flying - watched the men lay block for the foundation of Grandma's greenhouse and had a super time playing in the half ton sandthat was gotten to make mortar. One afternoon they went to visit Cyndy and WayneKitchen to see the Lhasa Poo puppies and ended up by bringing one home for Irene and Talma. While all this was going on they were without sewer connection when the line got broken as a result of removing ground for the greenhouse. Irene says it was a challenging ex- perience, to say the least. Mary Bell, Lil Craghead, BJ LaMotte and Ruth Lerch have returned from their semi-annual trek to Redding, Pa., where they found lots of pretty things to bring home. They stopped at a Farmers Market and found lots of goodies there - like very large eggs, perfect mushrooms, large radishes and rhubarb pie- Bob's favorite. The Hospital's Auxiliary Luncheon and Fashion Show was a huge success and I was happy to see so many of the BRA ladies there. The lunch was delicious and I thought the fashions were great. Last week our mail carrier Mr. Cummings was injured when his car was hit in the rear in Silver Grove. We certainly wish him a speedy recovery - and I for one sure do wish traffic conditions were better around here. Our own Virginia Blizzard will certainly be missed. Her very sudden death at her sister's home in South Carolina was a great shock, to everyone_,We extend our sympathy to her son Richai'd and sister, Aleen Daugherty. This past weekend, Lil and Bill Craghead entertained with a Happy Hour which was most pleasant - so much so, that I'm afraid we overstayed our time. Forgive us. Isn't this Spring weather heavenly? Enjoy! See you next week - don't forget to let me have your news.

Harry the Dirty Dog, by Gene Don't let a heart attack take life away from you. Whatever you do, don't ignore the prospect of a heart attack. Life is too good to throw away. It's to be enjoyed. Enjoy it in good health. Death comes in the form of a heart attack to over half a million Ameri- cans each year. Unfortunately, many heart attacks just seem to happen and nobody is really sure why. According to medical authorities, careful atten- tion to two things can significantly reduce the chance of its happening to you. First, what youeat. Be moder- ate with foods containing animal or saturated fats - eggs, organ meats like liver and kidney, butter, cream, cheese and whole milk. There is med- ical evidence to suggest a connection between these foods and a buildup of fatty tissues on the inner lining of your arteries. And much like rust clog- ging a pipe, this tissue narrows the passage for blood and may eventually lead to a blockage which could cause a heart attack. Try to eat more foods with poly- unsaturated fats. More fish and poul- try, skimmed milk, and polyunsatur- ated margarine. Don't assume that you are too young to have to worry about this buildup process. It starts early in life. Give your children sensible foods now and they may never have heart at- tacks in later years.
