Smith, Vegetable Horticulturist Cooperative Extension Service the most universal question raised by gardeners chemical can I use to control the weeds and grass Anyone with gardening experience can easily why this question is asked.

The event was supposed to be a fish fry and take place at Lake Jack- son, Florala, Alabama. How- ever, the weather did not co- operate and we had no fish. In spite of the weather, over one hundred (I00) people were pre- sent and a good time was had by all. The participants enjoy get- ting together to meet new peo- ple and greet old friends.

Some say the Bible is a roadmap to Heaven; others say it is a two.edged sword; but the one I like the best is that the Bible is a jigsaw puzzle x~hich portrays the face of Jesus. The Bible is divided into many parts, and in every part we see a little of the face of Jesus. For example, in Genesis, Jesus appears as the seed of the woman; in Exodust He is the passover lamb; in Leviticus, He is the atoning sacrifice; in Numbers He is the smitten rock; in Deuteronomy, He Is the prophet; in Joshua, He is the captain of the Lor&s hosts; in Judges, He is the deliverer; in Ruth, He is the heavenly kinsman; in Kings, He is the promised king; in Nehemiah, He is the restorer of the nation; in Esther, He is the advocate; in Job, He is my redeemer; in psalms, He is my all in all; in Proverbs, He is my pattern; in Ecclesiastes, He is my goal; in the Song of Solomon, He is my satisfier; in the prophets, He is the coming prince of peace; in the gospels, He is Christ coming to seek and to save; inActs, Heis Christ risen; in the epistles, Be is Christ at the father's right hand; in Revelations, He is Christ returning and reigning. Now, you see what I mean when you take all the parts of the Bible and put them together. You have the face of Jgsus, and Jesus is everything. Now some say the Bible is really a puzzle to them, and they have trouble putting everything together in its proper place. Did you not know that God has already worked the puzzle for you7 Note that the first five books of the Bible are law; the next twelve" are historical; the next five, poetical; then the five major prophets; and closing out the Old Testament are the twelve writings of the minor prophets. The New TeStament consists of the four gospel books, one of history, epistles, and one of prophecy. This makes a total of sixty.six books written by approximately forty authors over a period of 1600 years. Now here are a few facts about the Bible. The thirty.nine books of the Old Testament were written in Hebrew; the twenty-seven books of the New Testament were recorded in Greek. The Old Testament centers around God and Mt. Sinai; the New Testament centers around Jesus and Calvary. The longest book in the Old Testament is Psalms; the longest book of the New Testament is Luke. The longest chapter and the shortest chapter of the Bible are only separated by the ll8th chapter of psalms. The longest chapter is Psalms ll9; the" shortest is Psalms 117. The longest verse in the Bible is Esther 8:9; the shortest is John 11:35. There are 1,189 chapters in the Bible, and these are divided into 31,102 verses. The Bible holds two records: It is the most bought book ever published, and it is the least read. So you can see that the Bible is a very interesting book and not as much a puzzle as some may think. Oh yes, there is just one more interesting point I want to make. There are exactly 775,693 words in the Bible, and the word LAZY Is not one of them. Hello Friends & Citizens: How do people weigh and judge words? Why do people like journalists, phsycologists, lawyers, etc. take the study of words and their use in four years or so of college? Well, what we read and hear affects us all in thousands of ways, and man or learned men appreciate this. The communist indoctrinate or bombard people with a volume and variety of words continuously, while controlling the subject and amount of enlightment or confusion of same. Small talk is like water falling on a duck's back and also has its place among people. Yet the truth on vital and or deep subjects are suppressed or partially suppressed not only in communist countries, but also in America and is easily proved. There are words or combinations of same by the millions and little. I can't and don't attempt to cover the subject. Yet, on a small scale, here's trying. Words can for an individual or nation, lead or mislead, encourage or discourage, secure or insecure, assure or frighten, make happy or sad, exciteor dampen, scram- ble or unscramble, etc. ect. And again what really heppened to Ex-President Nixon, Howard Hughes and many others which the news media is supposedly keeping you well informed on and also finance, health, law, edu- cation, ethic and ethenic problems, etc. You don't have to be of "Lt. KoJack's" caliber to tell that the public is being misled on important matters. Hope to continue and will circumstances permitting. DAN McLEOD, P. O.

At first effects may be so slight, however, they may not be noticed. Untreat- ed, emphysema grows steadily worse and will destroy lungs and life. Two of the major causes of progressing emphysema are cigarette smoking and air pol- lution. Doctors say that people who breathe smoke filled and other polluted air for years even if they don't smoke personally have more emphysema than loved one. Your presence, your pray- ers, food and beautiful flowers were greatly appreciated. Our special thanks to the Re- verend J. L. Harris for the im- pressive service conducted for our mother.

One of the major . . . if not the major . . . problems phy- sicians face in treating emphy- sema is the difficulty in detect- ing the disease until symptoms develop. This means that medi- cal care often is not started un- til there has been major de- terioration of lung tissue. The- raphy is difficult at that stage. If the disease could be ;dent;- fled earlier, people with emphy- sema and other chronic obstruc- tive lung disease might respond better to treatment. Measur- ing devices can chart the de- gree of lung capability. Results of these tests indicate early stages of chronic obstructive lung disease. Discovery of early abnorma- lities in lung functions may al- low for the earlier diagnosis of chronic obstructive lung dis- ease. As the early stages of these diseases are better under- stood, more effective treatment may be possible. Pulmonary Function tests seek to identify persons with early chronic obstructive lung disease. These tests are of- fered, free of charge to the citizens of the state by the Ala- bama Lung Association, your Christmas Seal Organization. Contact the Alabama Lung As- sociation, Box 904, Dothan, Ala- bama 36301 for more informa- tion on Pulmonary Function Testing.
