"You're an old-timer if you can remember when rock was something you did in a chair." '76 Soil fumigants such as Vorlex and Vapam do a good job of controlling weeds, nematodes and some diseases in garden soils. However, they are not generally available. If used, read the label carefully before using. Gardeners are reminded that methyl bromide, an excellent soil fumigant, does not have label clearance for use in the home vegetable garden and is not recommended for use there. If there are further questions about other chemicals that can be used on vegetables check with your local county Exten- sion office for details. One parting reminder -- there is no good chemical that can be used to control nutgrass in the home garden. We can send men to the moon, but as yet we don't have an easy way to control nutgrass other than working it to death. VEGETABLE GARDEN: A GOOD INVESTIMENT Although no drastic increases are exhected.

Politics Take Strange Turns I was feeling real good about having a good healthy race for Commissioner, District 3, with so many new faces and well thought of people being mentioned as possible candidates. Now, this week, the talk of the town, politically, is that a number of the candidates being mentioned have decided to pull out of the race, even before it begins, and throw their support to one candidate in order to de- feat another. This news is disappointing. What will actually happen is any ones guess. The Democratic Committee Meeting to be held at the Court House in Andalusia this Saturday, February 14, should shed a little like this for nothing." | She was insinuating that, in her condition, she mig hi! up and die.
