April 22 & 23 North Duplin Presents Hello Dolly North Duplin High School will present the musical, "Hello, Dolly," April 22 and 23 in the school gymnasium at 8 p.m. The drama is the third annual production di rected by the North Duplin band instructor, Brian Hoxie.

Vandergelder is a well known half-millionaire. Ac cording to Hoxie, the pro duction usually includes as many as IS songs during the two acts. The musical comedy is sponsored by the North Duplin Band Boosters Club and the high school. Starring in the lead roles of Horace Vandergelder and Dolly Levi are John Lewis and Lynda Walker. John is a junior at North Duplin and has played the lead role in both the previous drama productions at the high school. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Bill Lewis of Faison. Lynda is a junior at North Duplin and has ap peared in both dramas pro duced at the high school by Hoxie. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Deri Walker of Route 2, Mount Olive. The students at North Duplin under the direction of Hoxie have produced the musicals "Oklahoma" and "Finian's Rainbow." "The play is educationally worthwhile," Brian Hoxie said. "It is the only thing we have in the area of drama. There are no drama classes at North Duplin." The per formance of "Oklahoma" was seen by more than 900 people during the two-night run. And, more than 600 people turned out for the musical "Finian's Rain bow." Seating capacity in the gym for "Hello, Dolly!" is estimated at about 300 people nightly, Hoxie said. "There will be more than 50 people in the show," Hoxie said. "It is really a school effort to put on the production. The shop classes build any complicated props and set and the agriculture classes help with the set." Admission is tentatively set at S3.50 for adults and $2.50 for students. The cast also includes Dannie Taylor, a senior, as Cornelius Hackl, Jill Best, a sophomore as Irene Mollory, Phil Evans, a junior, as Ambrose Kemper. Sarah Best, a senior, as Ermen garde, Angie Kennedy, a senior, as Mini Faye, and Rodney Wilson, a sophomore as Barnaby. Southern Pine Beetle Few forest pests have got ten the publicity in the South in recent years that can rival the "print" received by the southern pine beetle. But, according to Dennis Knowles, Duplin County forest ranger, this beetle deserves all the attention it is getting and more, because it is the single most destructive pest in the southern- forest. Many forest landowners are asking "Should 1 beat the beetla to the punch by -har vesting timber now before it is wiped out? Is there some thing 1 can do to lessen the likelihood of beetle attack?" Thanks to some important forest research in recent years, there are now answers to these two questions. "The first is answered by 'NO'. The second by 'YES' Knowles said. Foresters now know that the single most effective prevention measure is to keep timber stands healthy and vigorous. Dense stands containing many slow growing and weak trees are favorite targets of the hungry beetle. "By carefully thin ning out the smaller trees until the remaining trees have adequate space for expansion of their crowns." -explained Knowles, "the possibility of a successful attack by pine beetles will be greatly reduced." Trees that are growing well usually have enough flow of resin up and down the trunk to "pitch out" any beetles that could get through the bark and enter the tree. Weak trees are more easily overwhelmed by attacking beetles. Mature and overmature trees seldom respond to thinning and con sideration should be given to harvesting and replacing them with younger trees. Damage to the remaining trees during logging should be controlled as well, ac cording to recent research information. It also helps to manage for good hardwood species. These trees, not bothered by the beetle, act as a buffer against pine beetle movement as it progresses through an infested pine stand. Throughout the South, the odds of anv property ex periencing a southern pine beetle attack are small. However, by applying these management practices, the odds are greatly reduced in favor of the forest land owners. "The key is to keep pine stands well-managed and growing so that the adage, 'an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure' will have an opportunity to be fulfilled," Knowles added. Additional information and help in managing timber stands to minimize the risk of southern pine beetle attack is available at NRCD-Forest Resources and your local N.C. Forest Service office.
