Mrs. Benedict penned this limerick about her favorite entertainer: There is a musician named Mike, The best this side of the Pike. At the Holiday lim, 'Way up there and then You'll find entertainment you'll like. SEATTLE, Wash. (UPD -- The two-headed garter snake at Woodland Park Zoo here is doing just fine although senior zookeeper Ernie Wagner says the reptile appears to be left- headed. . Wagner says the snake eats more with its left head than the right. It is thriving on a diet of guppies, goldfish and earthworms. Wagner says the two-headed snake should live to 10 to 15 years if everything goes right. He says it is not fully understood what causes VT?vtiv-uuvv* oiiutwo niiicii often die young because of defective internal organs. COMMUNITY GE n-0536 5021 ANAHEIM NOW PLAYJNO ON STAGE "A MAM FOR Cadillac set sets out with hoes By PAT LEISNER SUN CITY, Fla. (AP) "Why should I pay 59 or 69 cents for a head of lettuce when I can grow my own for about 2 cents," Bruce Dyer said as he puttered in his vegetable patch. Dyer, 78, lives in this posh golden age comm u n i t y where retirees own $50,000 homes, drive fancy cars and can afford to pay s u p e r m a r k e t prices. But despite their comforts, Sun City residents are trying to cultivate a green thumb. They plant and harvest their own BIG BOY RESTAURANTS cabbage, peas, egg plant, t o m a t o e s , potatoes, squash, beans, onions, broccoli, asparagus and fruits. "I don't think there is anyone in the whole group who does it because of financial necessity," says W a r r e n Hutchins, presi- d e n t of the a m a t e u r grower operation called Tillers and Toilers. "I think this is indicated by the fact that they come to hoe in Cadillacs, Continentals and golf carts. "These are people who have been frugal all their lives; used money wisely and now have no financial worry. At the same time you won't find any of them paying outrageous prices. They are conscious of a dollar," Hutchins, 68, said in an interview. It's hobby gardening with a purpose -- to help Whip I n f l a t i o n Now. Hutchins has received a l e t t e r f r o m President Ford congratulating the group for its support of the White House WIN project. "We were here and the ground was here," Ferris Dunning, 66, explained as he and his wife picked some egg plant for dinner. "We're not gardening out of financial necessity -- not yet, anyway," said Dunning, a native of Park Ridge, 111., who spent 37 years in the consumer fin a n c e business before moving to Florida in 1969. Interest in Tillers and Toilers has grown with inflation. Today, 62 families participate. All the gardners are over 65. "We decided to put a little fun into it," Hutchins said. "We nicknamed the gardens using the owner's last name: like Fulton's Folly, Dunning's Diggings and Garden of Weedon." The plots, on land furnished free by Sun City developers, measure 17 feet by 75 feet each. A couple may plant as many as two patches. The Hutchins, for example, raise 42 varieties of vegetables, 13 kinds of herbs, 11 fruits and 15 dif-»/ ferent flowers. ATTENTION YOUNG MEN!
