Deidre Garuand - Paid Adv. Garnand's Grains of Sand NATURE ISN'T GAUDY As we watch the beauty of the sunrise or the glory of the sunset with their many colors there is never a hint of gaudiness. The shades of color are always blended just right to be pleasing to the eye. This is the handiwork of God. He never allows nature to be tasteless or vulgar. Ma n k i n d may put things together in a way that shows a lack of taste. Colors may be used with other colors that are not compatible causing a hideous display. Sometimes in the attempt to attract attention so called objects of art are produced that are tawdry or garrish. God never permits nature to be out of harmony. When the leaves fall from the trees in the fall nature also turns the grasses brown to harmonize with the season. When the bare limbs remain as the only adornment of the trees the sky takes on a somber hue in keeping with the land. Snow comes to complete the winter theme of black and white. Sometimes people make floral arrangements that are not harmonious. They use the wrong colors together, mixing varieties that do not belong with each other. Nature never does this. The wild flowers of the field grow side by side without any clashing. Whenever we use flowers of the same variety the colors do not matter for nature never permits the colors of the same variety to clash. One may use red and yellow roses together without a displeasing effect. Pink and white and red carnations are always in harmony. It is only when different colors of different varieties are mixed without discrimination that there is a lack of harmony. No, nature isn't gaudy, only people produce gaudiness. Garden City Telegram GC Students Try Another Solar Energy Idea Like inventors perpetually searching for a belter mousetrap, a group of local high school students are working to harness solar energy. Their first attempt was an inexpensive solar collector panel consisting of bottoms of 636 beer cans mounted in a wooden frame. To say il worked would be an understatement. After an hour in the sun, temperatures in the States Wage Fight For Hughes Money collector climbed to 212 degrees Farenheit. Now the students, under the instruction of Jim Tomayko, have built a smaller collector panel utilizing aluminum sheets used in printing presses, such as those at The Telegram. First results weren't impressive but before they continue their tests they're contending with same hangup facing all solar projects- cloudy weather. "It's definitely not as effective," said Tomayko. Of course, the panel's smaller size (eight square feet compared with 32) limits the amount of heat collected. But the students learned that the smooth surface of the aluminum sheet means air isn't trapped for the amount of lime required to heat it adequately. Jrfeverlheless, Tomayko's stadenls in the Self-Directed Learning Center are still basking in the publicity of their first achievement. A national news service carried WASHINGTON (AP) — California and Texas would have been proud had the late Howard Hughes called one of them "my home" just before he died. And one of them would have been undisputably richer, too, by gaining the right to levy inheritance taxes on the Hughes estate. But since the eccentric millionaire made no such choice, the two states are on a collision course in battling for the inheritance money, two attorenys representing HUMPHREY 'Tension Sealed" Aluminum Products CUSTOM MADE INSULATING (STORM) WINDOWS AND DOORS ANY SIZE ANY COLOR NEW VINYL TRACK GIVES .

With millions of dollars at stake, Myron Siedorf and James R. Birnberg urged court appointment of a "special master" to help the two states reach agreement. Neither state has any obligation to respect the other's findings as to Hughes' home when he died in April 1976, the two California inheritance tax lawyers said. The Hughes estate might be assessed inheritance taxes totaling more than its available assets, they added. Hughes' sizeable estate, which has filed a federal estate tax return showing a value of nearly $167 million, also is the subject of probate proceedings in Nevada, Louisiana and Delaware. California's inheritance tax has an effective rate of 24 percent for amounts over $400,000 — yielding an estimated $32 million if applied to Hughes' estate. Texas' tax rate on amounts exceeding $1 million is about 16 percent.

Two homeowners from Texas called to say they wanted more information about the project. And a relative of one student called from Ohio to say he'd read about the solar experiments. To show that no one has a market on the sun's energy, the students published instructions for the beer can collector entitled, "A solar heating panel using cheap materials."
