Harry Nolle, official weather observer, said that 3.4 inches of snow had fallen by 1:30 p.m. that day. Temperature fell to a low of 32 above, and the lowest temperature ever recorded for May 28. There was no evidence of frost, however. Generally speaking , it was not believed that the unseasonable snow had injured crop prospects other than slowing down spring operations. Highway conditions were reported as bad as far as visibility was concerned. - o - Alvln, son of Mr. and Mrs. Aired Godredson of Seneca, was hospitalized as the result of a gunshot wound in his leg.

Fishing at the south end of the gravel pit, in Plum Creek Twp., he caught a pickerel (or northern pike, If you prefer), that measured 39 1/2 inches from nose to tail and weighed approximately 12 Ibs.

Aleak- ing stove in the basement during the night was the main cause of the blast. He lit a match in the basement and the explosion occurred. He was thrown back through the door by the blast and the door was torn from its hinges. A trap door in the kitchen was blown open and a table and several dishes were also broken and other damage done. - o From County Chatter by D.H.H.

Roy has a fine looking herd of Shorthorn cattle on his place. Mrs. Ringsdorf has 1200 Leghorn spring chickens and about 600 laying hens. She and Roy traveled to Florida last winter and had an enjoyable trip." For And About Teenagers) /J l-iiJiui , bun of THE WEEK'S LETTER: "I am u girl, fourteen years of age and 1 have an important question to usk you. About a boyfriend. I don't really believe he likes me or he doesn't think I like him. I don't know which it reully is. We talk to each other ut school and during games and we do tilings together. Another problem Is that he doesn't like for me to walk or talk with any other boy, yet he sometimes walks and talks with other girls. What ohould 1 do to solve these problems'.'" OUK UKPLY: Why notjustbe good friends? He likes you orhe would not walk and talk with you. You like him or you would not like to be with him. But, you are rather young to get so serious as to give up other friends and, believe it or not, even married people talk to persons other than the individual they are married to — and what a mixed-up world this would be If such were not the case. Additionally, don't you think it is rather one-way for a boy to become upset when a girlfriend talks or walks with another boy and doesn'tfeelbound to observe the same type of restrictions where other girls are concerned? Come now, let's be fair! M you hav* a Ifttnag* probUm you want In dlKuli. or an obiirvation to mob, aa^rau you l.ll.r la FOX AND ABOUT TEENAOilS. COMMUNITY AND SUBUMAN NESS SEIVICE. FRANKFORT, KY.
