"I practice lesi, but more orderly. I never rnlss one day cow, never, but practice not more than one or r»o hours. After four or five hours, you are tired. You are against yourself.

For aa eveair.j concert, there's not time between the office and the concert. The wife is saying. 'Hurry, we have only one hour.' And an afternoon concert is not a social event; you don't see too many diamonds, and at my concert they would wear them. Bjt I 'dcn't lie that. ''When I announce a concert n New York. lann ounc wiee ]in New York.

Horowitz is playing t»ire in New York and in Rochester. , NY.. New Haven. Com. Wash- lington, DC. and Philadelphia. During a flight to Washington for a concert last season, the plane circled for aa hour and someone taid to him. "You see. | you can stand it. You caa fly to ' Chicago." Horowitz. wh» believes that everyone shares his fear of flying but won't admit it. thinks indeed he could fly to Chicago and later this season, he may. Asked whether he has been back t» his native Russia in recent years, he says no. "1 would !like first to reach California; | it's 17 years lince I've beea .there. Fear of Eying is the problem, not p'.ayir.g the piano. But maybe if I start to fly one more hour, then one more, tie fear will p away. It is just in the making ncnr." Horowitz is eidled about his ] new home in the country. "I am tired from the b;j cities, the tension, air pollution, clai». I don't nave any office here; I caa play the piano anywhere. I lean come here to make records and play concerts." One problem in music that Horowitz taled about is that of intellect vs. emotioa. "There's too much thinking, too little feeling. "Among yourg pUnisfs. there's a trend to the cerebral approach- There are exceptions. We call those exceptions talent "The bra ia is the control of emotion; there has to be something to be controlled. The heart is the guide, the brain Is the control; what comes out has t have both." He's nervous before a coacert. Horowitz aiy$, but cot in a paa- ic. capable cf surviving in the soil. caa mtrwinler ia much larger numbers in the roots of infected plants nit destr.iyed la the fall.

The stubble and roots of plant; removed from the garden should also be destroyed.
