(Staff Photo) YOUR GARDEN-Green Coyer Crop Invaluable for Rehabilitating Tired Soil By HENRY FREE | Good gardners everywhere are I pretty much agreed that after clearing the vegetable patch of its crops a soil improvement program is in order. j But why worry about the the soil.""asks the novice gardner, "didn't it produce a good harvest this year?" Yes. replies the Old Gardner, but when we garden on the same land, or even use a rotation plan, we upset nature's balance and it becomes necessary to rehabilitate the soil i£ we expect to maintain it in good tilth and again secure from it top quality vegetables. Wise gardners work with nature. They know that by adJing organic material they can improve the growth of plants and that it is possible to grow the best with a little help from chemical fertilizers. A good green cover crop with manure spread over it in the fall and turned under in the spring will build a healthier soil, increase valuable plant food, add, humus and nitrogen and improve! the tilth. j Cover cropping benefits the gar- 1 den during the winter months by, preventing loss of valuaole top-i soil from washing; by ^"eventing,' the loss of soluble plant food> •which it takes up and later adds to the soil; and increasing the supply of available nitrogen in the soii, especially when a leguminous! crop, such as clover or winter vetch, is planted. Professor Alex Laurie, floriculturist, formerly of Ohio State University, declares that in tna absence of manure, a good cover crop might be termed "green gold." He says: "Besides the nitrogen, the green manure takes up minerals from all parts of the soil reached by the roots and upon the decomposition of the roots and What's It For?" TV Show, Raises Question NEW YORK (UP)—"What's 'it For?" is a new NBC-TV panel show that provoked many critics nta asking the same question. But one of its panelists, Abe Burrows, believes the show has a »ood chance of. surviving. It all joils down to the show's personalities and how they .mesh, savs Sorrows, and the gimmick ot a show has little to do with its success. "I'm not saying the gimmick of i show doesn't mean anything at ill," said Burrows. An eye-blinker ind forehead-wrinkler, he blinked and wrinkled. "What 1 am saying hough is that on TV it's the personalities who make or break 'a show—particularly of this kind. Vhat counts in the end is the way :he viewer. responds to the per- formers and not necessarily, the idea of the show. "Now, we took a bit of a panning on this show first time out. A roasting? No, I wouldn't say a roasting.. I've been roasted myself often enough to be able to tell a roasting. But anyway, 1 think we're beginning to come across, we're working together better." Features Goofy Inventions . "What's it For?", it might be pointed out, is a half-hour Saturday night entry that showcases goofy inventions. A pane) composed of Burrows, Betsy Palmer, Hans Conried and a swing guest tries to guess the nature of the mechanical beast. Emcee Hal March cracks the whip. "I think this is one of the big differences between TV and the theatre," continued Burrows as he blinked three frantic blinks. "You can get by in TV without strong material if you have that strong personality working for you. Yoy get a guy who lights up that) screen and you stay with him. , "But in the theatre, it's the show, that counts. Sure, there are a few personalities who can carry a show on their backs—like Ethel Merman—but basically, it's the material .that makes or breaks you on Broadway. "Of course," said Burrows with a blink and a wrinkle and a blink, blink, blink, "the big trouble with TV is that very often there doesn't seem to be any material at all. The comedy is not very inventive and the ideas'not very fresh. But you can't blame anybody — there just isn't enough time." Plans New TV Series Burrows, co-author of "Guys and Dolls" and director of "can- Can" and "Happy Hunting' 1 on Broadway, currently is engaged in a TV project that would Ring Lardner's "You Know SU, Al," to TV as a series. "With a TV series, you Just keep working. However, I guess you can say with this Lardner thing, my reasons- are artistic,'" he concluded with a wrinkle, wrinkle. "It's really a labor of love."

Thus . tne unnatural environment 1 of an aquarium triggers the hereditary. Schlumberger, who is. a member of the faculty of the University of Arkansas, is appealing to biologists and other scientists "who examine large numbers of animals not commonly studied by oncologists" to collect and study the tumors they see. He has made the appeal in lectures to scientific audiences. whose sum total is cancer. I This solvable riddle, is this: How 'dothe forces of heredity as concentrated in the chromosomes of germ cells from which all lives, whether fish, fowl or mammal, have their beginnings), inter-act with the forces of environment and cause cells to go berserk and become cancerous? Schlicrcberger pointed to catfish and eels. Those caught in industrially - polluted rivers of the East have a surprising incidence!
