SUNDAY; OCTOBER 20,1957 THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, LOGANSFORT, INDIANA PAGE FIVE Florys 9 Business Eases Work For Doctors The adage about an. apple a day keeping the doctor away may be a terse explanation of the diet value of an apple or it may be just plain old sales talk. But if it does have merit, the apples raised "on the Jasper and Richard Flory farm east of Logan will keep about 700,000 doctors from doors this winter. This is, of course, stretching the myth. a. wee bit since only,34 doc- t^s.riracHcp '« Cass county. Then too, mnre f*">n one apple a day could be eaten. Anyway, the Florys figure roundabout 690,000 of their-apples.w'll be carried into hom e this faU. Their 115 trees'will bear 30 bushgit: oo-h, on the average. They count 200 apples to a bushel, on th P average. The elder Flory, Jasper, plant ed 126 trees when he sowed the orchard. Exactly when he did that is conjecture. ; He said,, did Mr. Flory, that it was about 35 years ago. No, said Mrs. Flory,- his wife, it must have been 40 years ago. "No,, said .Richard, only son of Jasper," it sure.wasn't more than 31 or 32.years ago. I remember because I was such a little squirt then." He is bigger now, aged 39. Good 1957 CrOp Anyway, their trees grew a bumper ;crop of apples this year, among which are Johnathan, Mc. Intosh, .Delicious, Roma' Beauty, and King David brands of apples. Their apple forest is and was for the past two months a panap- rama of red. Branches hung in misery, being pressed down by oodles and oodles of apples. One move the Florys made to get prodigity in their production was to fertilize each tree each spring with about three pounds of the stuff sprinkled around the roots. Offhand, a layman might think this is quite a task. Not so said Jasper Flory, now 68. He could do the whole 115 trees in half a day. "Only thing is", he said, "you have to have a hard head or you may get a few bumps from branches bopping you or your hard head." Some apples topple to earth early. Seems like some of them see you coming, he said. To combat this, they spray their trees with a chemical that makes the apples 'stick and wait for them. Sun Reddens Them Some red apples are not all red. He explained that the sun rays redden the. apple. That part that is not in the oath of thoes rays stays green. Thos e that 'are all red ge t that way teacuse the red get that way because the are thin and let the sunlight in on the other side .too. • It was a pleasure for Richard and Jasper Flory, and their help- per John Anderson, to pick the apple crop this year. They said it is a real.joy to see such a colorful display of shiny, good red apples.' ; They picked them prideMly. As-lor sampling the fruit taem- selves-huh uh. They are really not too overly fond of apples, doctors or no. Next step after picking at the Flory Orchard east of Logan on High Street Road is the grading of he apples, according to size.

CORNELL NEW YORK UP) — People from .he planet Vejuis are reported ceeping a close but friendly watch on the earth these days. This is the contention of a new spiritualist movement, which holds that messages from Venus are coming in regularly. "They plan to begin token landings next month," said Robert Ewing, a Florida man who. has made lengthy recordings he __ says ar e messages from Venusians. Within organized spiritualism, a ' huge religious activity in this country' with an estimated two million followers, such claims are keenly controversial. Traditionally, spiritualists have confined their • mystic efforts to communications with dep arted souls. In Portland, Maine, 'where America's "most conservative branch, the National. Spiritual Assn., was in , convention this week, trustee Dr. Victoria Barnes of Chicago said of the claims about Venus: "We do 'not accept that." The Rev. Dr. William Hubbard, president .of the association said the reports were "not dignified." "We accept only that which can be proved. At this time, we feel this (communication with Venus) has no bearing on- spiritualism. Our board of -. education does notj teach it." edge will have unshered in a "new Others Believe It However, some other groups are not so skeptical. age" on earth. . No Diseases There 10.

That they have eight large platforms, with landing strips and living quarters, circling th e earth as satellites at a distance of 10,000 miles. Any view of them is prevented by the bending of light rays. ; , 2/ That for four years. Venus space ships from these bases have been observing earth, with -469- foot "mother ships" hovering over the southeastern United States 15 miles up. - 3.

A key figure in the cause, Enid Brady, minister of the First Spiritual Church of Daytona Beach, Fla,, said she has been "hi actual contact" with the Venusians for six months, after four years research. "We know that telepathy is a fact" she said. "The people on. coming here was to halt pollution of space by radioactive dust from atomic blasts on earth, and that they have been releasing charges -the co-called "green fireballs" seen on earth— to counteract the 12. 1* l& Z1 Ftf s ff ftt 10.

Transmit Thoughts Thus, she said, they're abl e to transmit messages -- through an open-minded "instrument." She said she goes into a type of t rance . and "through wave impulses, the Venusians "use my body and vocal chords." She herself is oblivious of the process at the time. With her as a medium, Ewing, of Edgewater, Fla:, said, he con-, verses with the Venusians, recording the exchanges on tape. He said the Venusians'-have told him they have six such contacts on earth, three in the United States, and one each in France, England and Russia. / "I thought it was all a lot of bunk 1 at-first," he-.said.
