PAGE TWELVE THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA SWIDAY, JUNE 24, 19fi2 Grooming Trees For Christmas Keeps Cass Growers Occupied Although it is several, months away,' at.-least one Cass county farmer is thinking of Christmas, However, his thoughts of Christmas take OR a little different meaning.. ' For Ned Hutchinson, of rural route 1, Logansport, who raises Christmas trees, his busy ..time is now. The., summer months, keep Hutchinson and, other Christmas tree growers busy pruning, trimming and shaping the,trees. It is vitally important that Christmas trees have a perfect shape. 'HUTCHINSON states, "We are going for quality. Christmas' trees will need to have 'good quality in order to sell readily and we believe people are willing to pay a better price for a nicer tree." Ned feels that that ..little extra care for each tree will, in the final analysis, prove beneficial, both financially and for a better product. Hutchinson has ten acres planted in Scotch pine. The farm is located on Indiana 17 at the junction of Road 250 North. The growing of Christmas trees can be a complicated venture. There is more to it than planting tree seedlings and watching them grow. SOME OF THE important factors that help make a nice tree include favorable soil, weed competition, shearing and insect control. ! Most of Hutchinson's trees are growing on Metea loamy, fine, sand soil which is one of the best soil types for growing good,trees. Fine textured dark soils such as Crosby or Brookston silt, loams provide less favorable growing conditions." Sandy soils do not encourage such vigorous grass anil sod competition as 'to the silt. loam soils. Tall grass can destroy the shape of the lower whorl of branches. On Christmas tree's, the lower \vhorl is vitally important to the entire shape of the tree. .ON SANDY "soil the trees grow normally bushier and not so tall and stringy, thereby requiring less shearing to develop a desirably shaped tree. . Soil so sandy and droughty that it wind-blows and grows no natural cover, grows the best Christmas trees. It is good land use and conservation practice to plant pine trees on this -kind of soil. There is little or no seed • bed preparation cost as for, grain or grass crops. Smith Family To Visit With Son For Two Weeks OLIVE BETHEL-Mr.. and Mrs. Srnest Smith and daughter Jane Anne,~ arrived home Tuesday even : ng after a- two weeks vacation with their son and his family, Mr. and Mrs. James Allen Smith and children, .Lisa arid James Allen Jr. at Menlo Park, California.

He has found that mowing in the rows once or twice each year keeps weed competition fairly well in check. The first two or •three years he could ride on a-small tractor with a rotary mower ^attachment. 'Now, however, in the fifth and sixth year, as Ihe trees grow wider in the whorl area, Hutchinson finds that a walking mower is more satisfactory. NOW, AT THIS time of year, while, the new growth is still soft and the terminal buds have set on, is the proper time to shear to train the growing tree into a desirable shape. Ned finds that no two trees are identical, so each tree calls for specific treatment. "This takes time. There is a lot of work to it, Ned states, but we are going to, try to come up next Christmas' With some nice trees." Other Cass county Christmas tree^grow^rs .that, are finding the month of June a busy time on best possible shape. This shaping helps make the tree more attractive. 24 Hr.

LIKE THE toy and clothing industries, which start production for Christmas many months in advance, Christmas tree farmers begin early too, but with one slight exception — their production starts several years ahead of the dale of December 25. It takes several years to grow a Christmas tree that will become a joy for small children awaiting good old Santa Glaus. I And. it takes a lot of hard work to see lhat those children will not I be disappointed on Christmas Day — for what would Christmas be 'like without a Christmas tree?

' Let's Talk Cars Many motorists, .about to trade in their used cars, wince when the salesman quotes them an allowance figure. They fail to realize he is only quoting, not setting, the market price. Starting out to estimate a trade- in deal, most B. H«ndritk>eMi dealers use one of the popular price guides tor a general indication of ^wholesale or retail prices. These are figures obtained from auctions and sales reports across . the country and represent an approximate, average ol values. They are never a substitute, for the specific valuation a dealer puts on a car from/ihis day-to-day knowledge of what it will bring' on his own lot. Isn't it plainly evident, then, that the real tised car price setter is the- cautious used car shopper who looks long and hard before he lays out his hard earned money? What he is prepared to pay for a particular model in a jjiven condition is that -cat's true market value. Excepting a really lop condition used car sold by a .dealer . with a reputation 'for quality, this true - market price' is a standard and uniform figure, common to all dealers. It logically follows, because profit and loss economics is a hard master, that a dealer offering you more for your car than its true market value, MUST shortchange you somewhere else if he is to survive economically. That is why a wise 'buyer buys only from a dealer whose reputation will stand investigation and whose customers testify to Ihe value and satisfaction he delivers. Hendrickspn Motor Sales 419 S.
