The bloom is a deep purple, and they hloom in late summer. • There are wild asters that grow here that have light red blossoms, and then I have seen other variations that I am sure were naturally hybrids of the various species and colors. Several species of .birdsjhaye already come down from the north to stay with us for awhile the tufted titmouse and the slate colored junco are two of these; although a few of them nest here each year. But many are here now and they.are very active. Both are sparrow sized birds. The titmouse has a lead-gray back 'and is nearly white underneath, with a showing of reddish brown just, below each wing. These are the birds that oldtimers used to call "sugar birds" because they are so noisy in maple syrup season, at which 'time. most of them are pairing off to go farther - north to nest. They are also; 'called : 'petuh birds" because 'their ;pring call is -A repitition'of what sounds like "petuh-petuh", time after time and endlessly. How ever at this time of year they are quiet. The juncos are the ones that we used to call "snow birds" because they were common het;e :'n winter to spend the snow season With us. They are slate-gray colored, being much darker above than below, and there is some white on the belly. But .heir distinguishing mark is one white feather on each side of •.he tail which is plainly noticeable when.they are in flight. There is one other 'bird that has this distinctive mark and this is ;he vesper sparrow. Both birds may be seen here now, but soon he vesper. sparrows will all be gone south and the white tail feathers will identify the junco. Of cours'e the vesper sparrow is typically a sparow in appearance and is not easily confused with the junco anyway. One day this week when I was eating lunch in the little brown house several juncos were in the cherry tree, and one female flew by the window arid spotted me. She came back two or three" times and fluttered iri front of the window to get a better look. Just curiosity, nothing else!

Both Candidates On Trail Today By United Press International •President Johnson plunged back into the campaign foray for the first time in two days today while his opponent, Sen. Barry M. Goldwater, scouted for votes in Johnson's Texas stamping grounds. Johnson, who cancelled several campaign appearances to participate in funeral observances for former President Herbert Hoover, ranges south into Tennessee in an effort to bring it back into the Democratic fold. The President scheduled speeches in Memphis and Chattanooga, then planned to fly to Maryland for an address in Baltimore tonight. His Memphis speech was se for the same river front site where Goldwater drew one of the biggest crowds.of his campaign several weeks ago. Ten- Sharpsville-Prairie High School freshmen underwent initiation last week at the hands of,the seniors. Among the tasks they had to perform, shown here, are chasing a greased pig and lassoing a goat. It was all in fun, though and all the students lined up afterwards for hotdogs and a variety of other food.

One thing I have learned is never to try to persuade a registered^ Dem ocrat to switch to Republican, "As one lady told me: 'I was born female, white, Presbyterian and Democratic. I don't intend to change any of those things, but I promise you I am going to vote for Barry Goldwater'." . such rebellious Democrats and the big bloc of independent liters maxe up the field which Mrs. Elder is ploughing so vigorously. In the course of her daily work she runs -into some odd situations because every election precinct has its own small quirks and peculiarities. Mrs. Elder finds that her voters are almost completely indifferent to Lyndon Johnson. They don't denounce him. They just don't talk about him. But the name of Hubert Humphrey is like a red flag to a bull in Precinct No. 13. Bitter Over Humphrey "People out here are very bitter about him," Mrs. Elder said. "They seem convinced he is a radical sort 'of person, much more so than Johnson. The only thing people say about Goldwater when they talk to me is why dosen't he tear into the Democratic administration more vigorously. They seem to think Goldwater is being tod polite and gentlemanly. Precinct captains- usually cjon'tneoncern themselves about tjjfij big, issues,, and, Mrs. Elder largely follows that pattern. A hot issue in one precinct can be a cold one iri another, .and" the captain has to get a finger on the p iblic pulse quickly and acting contradiction is .that • while No. 13 contains a high percentage of elderly persons," almost all of them are opposed to medicare for the aged. Mrs. Elder quickly learned this lesson: The elderly people in "No. 13 have enough money to' pay their own medical bills and don't want to be taxed to pay for somebody else. whistle stop tour through Southern California for the Arizoni senator. He told the ball park audience that the real civil rights issue "was not a vote on a bill. The real issue, Goldwater said, was whether the people want a president who will approach the matter "on the basis of his own conscience or whether we will continue to see civil rights treated as a brutal weapon of political power." GOP vice presidential nominee William E. Miller embarked on a one-day whistle stop tour of his home state today. The route was from Buffalo .into southeastern New York, wh^re Miller planned to catch a plane for Washington tonight. .;."_. In a campaign appearance Friday night in Jersey City, N.J:, Miller told voters, including a Hungarian - American group, that Goldwater would not "soft - pedal" communism, as president but work for the freedom of captive nations. Miller's opponent, Democratic nominee Huoert M. HumDnrey, scheduled a speech in Detroit and other appearances in Michigan and Wisconsin before wind ing up tonight with an address in his home city of Minnesota. He charged in a statement that the policies of Goldwater and his supporters could scuttle this country's position in delicate international trade negotiation. Mrs. Lyndon Johnson also took to the campaign trail today, flying to Pennsylvania on the first leg of <a four-day "flying whistlestop" tour to six states. The First Lady was scheduled to speakSn Allentown, >Pa., before heading for the (PAID POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT) Ui Senator A man who believes In a Federal government that serves rather than rules, that encourages rather than restricts free enterprise, that operates on a balanced budget, that does not destroy incentive by excessive taxation, that seeks peace with honor rather than wasteful worldwide spending.

Byram, Traaaurai bad." This is the type of practical problem that worries all of the thousands of precinct captains in both parties across the nation. They are willing to leave the high strategy to the candidates and the national committees, because they have more work than they can do right in their own backyards. Planning Carefully Mrs. Elder is attacking the election in Precinct No. 13 the way a four-star general plans an amphibious invasion. She has a battle chart showing who is responsible for each block in the precinct. She has a file of cards on every one of the approximately 2,500 registered voters. Her precinct is interesting because it is almost equally divided among Republicans, Democrats and independents. It well could be that as No. ,13 goes, so goes the nationl . Like most precinct captains; Mrs. Elder is a realist who knows, that votes are won, not by windy, purple orations, but by hitting the sidewalks and hanging on the telephone. She never makes political speeches herself because she is convinced that "the worst male speaker is better than the best woman." '.'Anyway," she said, "there are enough other things to do. I take charge of arranging for the hall or auditorium where the meetings are held. I try to get a band to furnish some music. I also arrange for a clergyman to deliver the invocation. Have Strategy Meetings "I suppose I make about 20 ohone calls a day, mostly to the block captains. On Wednesday night we have precinct strategy meetings. We discuss what Sam Lubell's latest political poll shows and if the news is bad we cry on one another's shoulder." Precinct No. 13 contains large homes and wealthy .persons. Over-all it probably rates as middle to high income. Many of its residents are people who Matinee Today Starting At 2 P.M. DIANA Ends Tonight ''HONEYMOON HOTEL" BIG PARADE OF COMEDY Sun. Mon. Tues. .

Chaplain Delivers Eulogy The Senate chaplain, the Rev.

"The amazing record Herbert Hoover has left in the accomplishment of rescuing enterprises under our starry banner and belting the needy earth speak for themselves in almost unbelievable rsults far beyond any poor power of ours to add or detract," Harris said.
