And you about nuclear - it ought to be or it ought not to be citizen should They are the )f the democratic But know this often has a harsh with opinions. one thing, a fact is another. In the welter of confusing be- liefs about whether or not to construct and provide fallout shelters, all of us are in search of a central fact, one that can be depended upon to guide us to a useful frame of action. There is such a fact, and it is simpiy this? No one can predict the future. This is a fact that permits us, paradoxi- cally enough, to act upon it. Indeed, we are forever acting upon this fact. Every decision we make presupposes the ele- ment of the unpredictable. Take insurance for example. We do not know whether our home shall one day burn to the ground. (It is both our opinion and our wish that it will not.) Nonetheless, we buy fire in- surance. Are we unwise to do so? Hardly. We are merely acting with the prudence of a species which strives to gird itself against as many unknowns as possible. So we do have a useful fact. To act upon it we need first to make a few ele- mental observations about our natural history as a species. Let us go hack to our begin- nings. Humans lived in caves then. in that primordial age, they needed three elements for survival - water, food and sbel- ter. Today, we live in the nu- clear age and, however uncer- tain our prospects are, we still need these identical three ele- I wish I could personally ask in District 24 to Vote May 4th. Counties and s just isn't possible. consider this as being Emery R. (Em.) Solomon, Jimmy Carter, Democrat Delegate, Democrat For President District 24 merits for survival- water, food and shelter. Of these three elements, the most im- portunt two in the nuclear age are water and shelter. The shelter must be of a special construction, no less than the equivalent of eight inches of concrete block. The water need have no special qualities except purity. But there must be enough of it to last at least 14 days. How much is enough? A healthy adult can survive on a minimum of one quart a day. Two quarts are more desir- able. Keep in mind though that there may be sick or in- jured persons in a shelter. They may need more than a us- ual ration. Then too the shel- ter may have to contain more persons than were planned for. The foods we eat in the shel- ter help to determine hOw much water We must have. When wa- ter is limited, proteins such as are found in meat, dairy pro- ducts, cereal grains and many vegetables should not comprise more than 8 percent of our da- ily intake. When we exceed this percentage, our daily wa- ter requirement rises. For planning shelter food needs, fi- gure on about 2,000 calories per day per intended occupant. These are basic facts. Remem- ber: When you think about a fallout shelter you are dealing, not with probabilities, but with possibilities. In a time of disaster, the facts about survival will apply with equal force to persons with all shades of opinion. No matter what your opinion - be prepared. Tri - City Rescue Squad Report During the weeks of from March 30 to April 25, the Tri-City Rescue Squad made 47 trips for a total of 4,546 miles, using ~.63 man hours. According to Foy H. Peter- son, they have been so busy they have not had time to turn their usual weekly report, but promise to do better in the fu- ture. The squad extends thanks to the people of this community for their support. JIMMY DENNEY NOMINATED TO DEAN'S HONOR LIST If you can't, I'll still Iove'you. Paid political ad by E.R. Solomon. Dr. and Mrs. James Den- ney were informed this week that their son, Jimmy, was no- minated to the Dean's Honor List for the Winter Quarter, 1976. Sincere congratulations and personal good wishes were of- fered Jimmy on his excellent academic achievement by Dean E.

These types of home improvements can save energy, make your home more comfortable, and even increase your home's value. l/!tAnd they can usually save enough on heating and cooling operating costs to pay for themselves within a few years. If you need to replace a worn-out heating system, another energy saver to consider is the heat pump. It's the most IH[ energy-efficient heating and cooling , __ [|||i system on the market today.

Top winners in the Senior and Junior divisions respecti- vely were Shona Adams, daugh- ter of Mr. and Mrs. James Adams of Antioch and Aretta Grissett, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Emmet, Grissett of Route 7, Andalusia. Shona and Aretta won an expense paid trip to • Auburn where they will re- present Covington County in the District II Dress Revue in July. The Bicentennial theme was evident in the red, white and blue bunting-draped stage, and the large tinseled replica of a carrier balloon labeled "Spi- rit of 76" suspended in the background. Large ferns and other greenery centered with a massive arrangement of white flowers completed the stage setting. The program was opened with the singing of "The StarSpang- led Banner" by the audience followed by the American and 4-H pledges led by 4-H'erLynn Hartin of Red Level. Sixty-three 4-H girls mo- deled in the 3 divisions of the dress revue: Elementary, Ju- nior and Senior. Winners in each category were: Elementary Division - Ap- rons: Ist - Tammy Henderson, Fleeta; Znd - Tammy Baker, Straughn; 3rd - a tie, Brenda Grissett, Red Level and Kathy Spivey, Red Level; Skirt: Ist - Rosalynne Lloyd, Stranghn; ~.nd - Nancy Bennett, Red Le- Questions And Answers by Claude W. Pike And Robert E. Linder, Extension Farm Agents • What can I use to control slugs and snails in flower beds and around the house? Apply a granual bait material or liquid spray containing Me- surol or Metaldehyde around the base of plants as directed on the container. Commercial baits containing Mesurol or Me- taldehyde plus calcium arese- nate will do an excellent job of control. One of the granular bait materials can be bought locally. What can I use to control caterpillars or worms on my cabbage, collards and other greens? The caterpillars can be con- trolled with a bacteria which is completely safe. The bacteria is Bacillus Thuringiensis and is sold under the following trade names: Di-Pel; Biotrol; and Tboricide. There is no waiting period after applying the bacteria before harvest. There is one thing you should remember - the bacteria does not kill the worms immediately. It makes them sick, they stop eating and eventually die. The insecticide Naled (Dib- rom) is also recommended for caterpillar control by home owners. A 1 to 4 day waiting period is required from last application to harvest. Apply according to container direc- tions. When should I prune Aza- leas? Contrary to popular belief, Azaleas can be pruned without damage to the plant and with- out interferring with future flower production. It is best to prune soon after the flower- ing period in the Spring. Nor- really, they begin to set flower buds in July. Therefore, prun- ing. after July would reduce flower production. When and how mucb fertilize should be applied to Azaleas? It's best to apply a split ap- plication of fertilizer. Make the first application after blooming then apply the re- mainder in July. Many people "over fertilize", especially with phosphorus. Too much fertilizer injuries the plants and may even cause them to die. Be especially careful with small plants. It's best to get a Soil test every Z or 3 years. If no test is made, an 8-8-8 or 6-1Z-19. formulation would be fine. Use no more thin 1 teaspoon of fertilizer at a time on plants less than Iy. inches high. For large plants, use one heaping teaspoon of fertilizer per foot of height scattered around oa the mulch.
