They all drove north for a family reunion at Succassana (yes, there is such a place in New Jersey).

Usually, of course, volunteer tomatoes are small like cherry tomatoes, but not these. I saw a picture of several of them, one weighed 21/ pounds. The Jacksons are saving the seeds for next year, but still, WHO put tomatoes in the geranium patch? Faithfully .....

CORRECTION In the Sept. 7 issue of the Spirit of Jefferson-Advocate a picture was carried showing an American Flag which had been flown over the nation's capitol in Washington being presented to Jefferson Memorial Post 3522, Veteran's of Foreign Wars of Charles Town, in memory of the late Shirley Writt of Ransom In the information carried under the picture it was incorrectly stated that Mr. Writt, a veteran of the U.S. Navy in World War II had been killed while in ser- vice. The story should have said that Mr. Writt died at his home in Ranson sometime after having been given an honorable discharge from the U.S. Navy. Presentation of the flag was made on Saturday moi'ning, Aug. 26 at the VFW Post Home by Brenda Moler, in the absence of Mrs. Isabel Albright, Americanism chairman for the VFW Auxiliary, who was'not able to attend due to illness.
