HOME GARDENS, GOOD HOBBY AS WELL AS MONEY SAVER "With a properly managed home vegetable garden, a family can save money on food, have better nutrition and have some- thing to work on together," says W. H. "Bo" Kinard, County Extension Chairman. Before starting a garden, you need a site where plants will row, a willingness to work ard and a source of good, cur- rent garden information. Kinard says if any one of these is missing, an attempt at garden- ing will result in financial loss and disappointment. In an effort to help home gardeners grow vegetables suc- cessfully, the Extension Service recently released a vegetable garden handbook, Circular P-50. Everything from planning your vegetable garden to har- vesting the vegetables is in- cluded in the new handbook. There is also a section on growing herbs. A vegetable planting chart is included show- ing varieties, planting dates, amount of seed required and proper spacing. Kinard says two other fea- tures of the handbook are a garden problem guide and a glossary of garden terms. The handbook was written by Perry M. Smith, horticulturist for vegetables with the Ex- tension Service, and is avail- able free at county extension offices. vast communications network, available to all pe6ple the year round, at a price everyone can afford. By law, the Postal Service - and the men and women who operate it is obligated to serve their community and the nation on a non-profit basis, with courtesy and care, and to keep postal costs in balance with postal revenues. To do this, the mail service needs the informed understand- ing, cooperation, support and constructive suggestions of every citizen and community. Postal Week is an appropriate occasion for recognition of the vital responsibilities assigned to the mail service and a valid time to take stock of the chal- lenges which must be jointly met by postal people and by the millions of citizens through- out AmeriCa who depend upon the mail as an essential part of their personal and business lives. Monday, April 30, has been designated as Postal People Day. On this day special re- cognition will be given the many dedicated Postal People whose tireless efforts keep 90 billion pieces of mail moving annually from sender to addressee, with no margin for error. In observance of Postal Week, Miss Llbby Kimbro, Post- master of the Kinston Post Of- fice, is planning to have a stamp collection on display Monday, CARD OF THANKS The family Ol Royce Hooten would like to express their ap- preciation to the many friends who's kind deeds and thought- fulness helped sustain us dur- ing our recent loss of our husband and father.
