Also at the time an independent basketball team was beginning to organize and meet at the high school gym. The City of Hearne began plans for the graveling of 35 blocks of city streets. This was to serve as the base for future pavement. Work was to begin in early 1950. Santa Claus and his reindeer were due in town to visit with all children and participate in the annual Christmas parade. The Hearne Eaglets and the faculty members were to meet a basketball game from which proceeds were to go into the school athletic fund. The faculty was required to dress in some sort of costume while the Eagles were in regular basketball dress. Letters to Santa began appearing in The Democrat that week. Mrs. R. H.

Hearne police began a drive to cut down on the speeding and reckless driving taking place in the city, especially around the elementary school in the southern section of town. Hearne ladies, Mrs. M.

Green Thumb Garden Guide The Dieffenbachias (Dee-fin- boch-e-ah) are among the most beautiful and easily grown of all house plants. As with so many outstanding foliage plants, these too are nati\'e to the rainforests of Central and South America. The common name for Dieffenbachis is Dumb Cane. This name is derived from the fact that if one chews the stems or leaves, a severe swelling of the tongue follows, causing an inability to speak A for a period of time. One should be cautious with small children and animals. A good porous soil and once a week thorough watering are its cultural needs. A light feeding every one to two months is sufficient. With Diffenbachias, growth is fairly rapid and this is not especially good. They too soon become weak and leggy. Light feedings as stated above svill slow down the process. The light should be fairly strong. A window or just below a floor lamp will do the job. As the plant grows, the lower, older leaves will turn yellow and shed. Do not be alarmed. This is natural. The life expectancy of a leaf is a little more than one year. When the plant has become tall and leggy, the tops can be removed to start new plants. The stem should be about 12 to 14 inches. Insert in good soil, keep moist, but not wet. Rooting soon occurs. The mother plant will usually send out new shoots and branching. Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Broadus enjoyed having as guests recently their son, Parker Broadus of El Campo and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Pete Morgan, Carla and Mark of Palestine.
