There’* more than one outfit to suit

Chowan County 4-H Club girls at the
annual 4-H Achievement Day to he
i held Monday night, November 16. at
• the Chowan High School auditorium
. at 7:30.
i Whether she fancies versatile sep- !
t arates, a slim basic, a simple-to-sew
| jiffy dress or a scoop neck jumper
. there’ll be 17 outfits with lots of va
i riety to choose from at the fashion
[ show. There are also lots of excit

• rons that are fun to make for gifts or
r for yourself.
Separates are very much in the
5 limelight and are pointed up by the

, with a slim plaid skirt and cotton
. overblouse, era weskit and skirt two
. some complete with a jersey blouse
and matching fringed stole.

5 The first thing you know it’ll be
• Christmas, then Easter, and you still
1 won’t have those trees and shrubs in
; the ground. Let’s do it now, instead
I of rushing through the job when we
■ get the “fever” next spring.
Move evergreen plants with a ball
i of earth around their roots. With
i shrubs and "mall trees that drop their
■ foliage in the fall, this ball of earth
isn’t necessary. It’s of the utmost
, importance though to remove as many
roots as possible with the plant.
Place most plants back in the soil
; the same depth that they came out.
Shallow rooted plants, such as box
wood, camellias, and azaleas, are par
ticularly sensitive in this respect. Use
good topsoil but no commercial ferti
lizer or manure next to the roots. Use
the fertilizer near the top of the
ground. It’s a good practice to mulch
all newly set plants. This will help
conserve moisture and later furnish
organic matter for the plant.
When you dig a plant there is us
ually a heavy loss of roots, often as
much as 90 per cent. It stands to rea
, son then that some of the top should
jbe removed to keep the plant in a
balanced condition. This means that
the more roots lost the more top
should be removed. If you’re trans
planting plants that have a compact
root system, such as the boxwood anc
azalea, little pruning will be neces
sary. On the other hand, plants with
a spreading root system, such as a
dogwood, will need perhaps half of its
top removed since many of the roots
, will be lost. :

The Japanese Hollies (varieties such

porches, under windows, in front of
taller shrubs, and for small houses
are good plants for the entrance and
corners. Nandinas lire algo good as
foundation shrubs, especially when
used in groups. In the shade, azaleas
might be used but we think of them
more for the border where they can
be seen from indide the house. Ma

FIRE TUESDAY MORNING
JDdenton firemen were called out
Tuesday morning when the home of
O. B. Bunch on the old Hertford road
caught fire. A blaze developed around
the chimney and but for the timely
arrival and quick work of the firemen
considerable damage might have re
sulted. As it was, little danpg* was
done by the fire.
Origin of Specie
We hear them say, the woman pays.
Which seems so very funny.
They never remember to explain
It’s done with Hubby’s money.
