PAGE-6 THE TIPTON DAILY TRIBUNE Thursday, Dec. 10,1964 On Th& Lighter Side By DICK WEST United Press International WASHINGTON (UPI) — Fox hunting is one of the world's oldest sports, give or take squat tag.- And yet the average person knows very little about it. The average person looks lp- on fox hunters as a bunch of nuts leaping and bounding around _on horses, which are leaping and bounding behind some hounds, which are leaping etc. behind a fox. Actually, of course, there are many subtleties and nuances in * fox hunting which arc only understood and appreciated by the ^true connoisseur. My own knowledge of this sport increased by leaps and bounds recently when I was invited to a fox hunt in the horsey country near Southern Pines, N.C. By 'observing part of the chase and questioning informed onlookers, I was able to get a fairly clear picture of what takes place during a fox hunt. This led conclude that fox hunters are a bunch of nuts leaping and bounding around on horses, which are leaping and bounding behind some hounds, which are leaping etc. behind a fox. One of my mentors at the hunt was a charming horsewoman named Miriam "Rabb, Conservation and Development. Mrs. : Rabb told me that a couple of riders are designated as *'whippers-in," also known as "whips." It is their duty to keep an eye out for errant hounds and steer them back into the pack. "Isn't that a coincidence!" I exclaimed. "We have the same thing in Washington on Capitol Hill. Each party in the House and Senate has a 'whip' whose job is to keep wayward members in line. Do you. suppose these congressional titles derived from fox hunting?"' "Very likely," Mrs. Rabb said. "And that isn't the only similarity between Congress and fox hunting. "Some hounds are known as 'babblers.' This means that they begin baying and otherwise behaving as if they had picked up the scent when actually they aren't within miles of a fox. "Does that remind you of anyone you know in Washington?" "It certainly does." I said. "Offhand, I would estimate that a good 50 per cent of our senators and representatives are babblers." At one point during the hunt, a young woman in our party posted herself at the edge of a clearing, hoping to get some good .photographs. When the who is travel editor of the j hounds came by, darned if they North Carolina Department of 1 didn't tree her.

The practice is by no means new. The firm points out that the number of minors with securities now totals nearly 500,000, and two years ago it was only 200,000. The rise has been aided .by the passage by state legislatures of a uniform gifts to minors act, which was promoted 'by the Association of Stock Exchange Firms. It now is in effect in 48 states and.the District of Columbia. Simple Transaction "Making a gift to a minor under these laws is a relatively simple matter for both the broker and the donor (the per son making the gift). However, in no instance whould the im portance of. the transaction be minimized by either the broker or the donor," duPont noted There are, it continued, three things to keep in mind in making gifts of securities to the under-aged person: —The gift is complete and irrevocable surrender of one's in terest to another person; even if the donor is" acting as cusU> dian, it must be in behalf of the minor. —Title to the . securities vested in the minor and there is no way th'at they pan be re turned to the donor until the minor reaches the age of 21. —Registration of securities in the name of the custodian for the benefit of the minor com pletes the entire transaction, the donor cannot change his mind once the gift is made.

(UPI)— Anyone who believes you can buy cheap land, plant a handful of- seedlings and reap a profitable harvest of Christmas trees without effort, hasn't talked to Morris R. Graves. Graves, the president of the Indiana Christmas Tree Growers Association,- says, in effect, the reason they call an evergreen patch a "tree nursery" is because you have to treat each seedling like a baby, pampering it all the way to maturity. He pointed out that a lot of people got the idea a few years ago from a rash of newspaper articles, that tree land could be bought for as little as $15 an acre, and that $1,000 an acre profit could be made for as little as $50 invested. For one thing, according to Graves, the lowest price for tree land these days is about $100 an acre. But that's only the beginning of a tree operation. Insects To Control There are weeds to mow, and insects to be sprayed. Not just once, but several times a season. After all, they don't all hatch at the same time. There's pruning to be done Each tree must be 'trimmed several times—by hand. Then there's the matter of color. It seems that some of the Christmas trees grown in this area tend to turn a beautiful golden color around Christmas time, and spraying them with green dye is the only answer. The trees have to be sprayed starting in August. This and going back to touch - up some stakes until freezing weather to get the job completed. Finally the trees are cut, loaded into trucks, and shipped. Of the 11 million Christmas tree purchasers in this country, probably not one in a hundred knows the difference between a premium" tree, and a No. 1 or' No. 2 tree. • • . " Premium Tree Perfect The premium tree has four good faces, or sides, with no major defect in any .face. It has good color, is symmetrical, and has a straight stem, Graves said. The No. 1 grade tree has three goqd faces and the fourth face is p'ermitted to be only of slightly less quality. The No. 2 grade need have only two good faces. This is the method used by dealers to buy trees from producers on a sight unseen basis. This year the Indiana Christmas Tree Growers Association- providing the trees for the Indiana State , Capitol and the governor's mansion. Growing Christmas trees is no rich-quick scheme, and Mor- Graves ought to know. He harvested 12,000 of. them this year. "That reminds me! I'd like to discuss another 'Balance of Payments problem'!"

Lutheran Parents Forum P-59 UPI By VERNON SCOTT Hollywood Correspondent .. HOLLYWOOD (UPI) — Ivy Baker Priest was treasurer of the United States during the Eisenhower administration. Her daughter Pat has joined the cast of a monster series on television. While mother's signature may still be found on U.S. currency, daughter will be seen in "The Munsters," replacing Beverley Owen as the only member of the regular cast without a green face. Pat is blonde, blue-eyed, aristocratic and absolutely beautiful. During her years in Washington, D.C.'Pat was queen of everything in sight: Queen of the President's Cup Regatta, queen of the Shenandoah Apple Blossom 'Festival, queen of the First International Azalea Festival, and, well like that. She was also one of the most dazzling debutantes in memory of the political and diplomatic set. Surrounded By Monsters . And now look, she's surrounded by a pack of monsters. Televiewers won't get a look at Pat until Dec. 31 when she makes her debut on the CBS TV series. Her ' appearance among the dimbulbs on the shnw may come as something of a shock to her old classmates at . Marjorie Webster School for Girls — not to mention her distinguished mother: "Fortunately people don't associate me with my mother here in Hollywood as they did in Washington," Pat said during lunch in the Universal Commissary. "Back East they made a fuss over me and my sister Nancy because mother was treasurer. I never'resented it because her fame opened up a whole world to us! I even had a television show back there." Church Group Show Pat's show biz career began at age 16 when her mother was directing a church group road show in Utah. "We lived in Bountiful, Utah, (population: 5,000)," Pat admitted unself - consciously. "And when we moved from that little place to Washington, D.C., it was something like the 'Beverly Hillbillies' moving from the sticks to Beverly Hills. "But I" hated to leave the little town because I was madly in love with one of the local boys." When Pat was chosen queen of the Regatta her escort, was a young White House aide, Navy officer 'Pierce Jensen— and he's been escorting her ever since. The Jensens live in Thousand Oaks, Calif., and have a sharp pair of sons named Lance and Pierce.
