Page 10. Wednesday, March 19, 1980 From Jefferson School By DENA GAMBETTA Another busy week at Jefferson. Last week a clown from the magic show came to Jefferson School during the noon hour and presented a short magic show for the students, which was greatly enjoyed by all. Even the adWts. This week we had Arbor Day! In commoration for Arbor Day this week the Timber Reforestation & Environmental Education, a circuit Rider Productions' Project, came to the school and explained to each class , how to plant seedlings, and presented each student with a small tree.Mr. M orrison, a student's father, is active in the group and was in- strumental in presenting the program. Here are direc- tions on planting the seedlings. Before tran- sferring-the seedling into the ground, store in a cool shady spot and keep the roots moist. Your pine tree will thrive in a sunny, dry location with deep soil and good drainage. Prepare the planting site by scraping with a hoe the vegetation from a three foot square area. Grasses, etc, if not removed, will compete with the seedling for moisture. For best results dig a hole twice as wide and twice as deep as the seedling's container. Mix the soil from the hole with one part compost to one part sand. Sand will provide drainage and is especially helpful if you are dealing with clay soil. Moisten this mixture and dump some of this soil in the hole. Pack it down so that the hole is now half full. Remove tree from container and push seedling in hole squeezing it lightly to keep the soil together, working quickly. The top of the soil where the tree is planted should be at ground level. If the tree holds firm with a slight tug then the tree is well planted. Water it thoroughly now and during the dry summer days. with approximately 10 gallons of water each time. Now your planting is done...wish your tree good luck, then sit back to watch it grow!

The group assembled at the Santa Rosa Junior College parking lot, and marched down Men- docino Ave., to College, over to Orchard, down to E Street, and down Fourth Street, where the street on one side was closed off for the parade, thence to the Court House Square, where some 500 persons, assembled to hear speeches, music, participate in booths, and other items they had on display, all about women. Song sheets were given out, to everyone, and all joined in singing at the square. Anyway the Drill Team members deemed it an honor to again carry our colors. This week Donna Wooldridge, Energy Chairman, received some interesting information on how to conserve energy in small ways. Of interest to our readers would be tips on saving ehergy by dressing properly. 1. Did you know a man's body gives about 390 BTU's per hour and a woman's giver off 330? 2. Ribbed or opaque panty hose are warmest. 3. Vests under suits are back in style and keep you warm. 4. Flannel FJ's are warmer and help your body to retain heat. 5. Bring out that old afghan for watching TV or reading. 6. Choose your fabrics carefully. Wool is warmest, wool blend is next, avoid leather or polyester if warm- th is your first concern. 7. Buy durable clothes, learn to renew old clothes. 8. Slacks are one degree warmer than skirts. 9. Long sleevers add about two degrees of warmth as compared to short sleeves.

He put up signs along the highway and advertised in the newspaper telling how good they were. He stood on the side of the road and cried: "'Buy a hot dog, Mister?" And people bought. He increased his meat and bun orders. He bought abigger stove to take care of his trade. He finally got his son home from college to help him out. But then something happened.
