trv ....... Bon Voyage wreath went to funeral By Abigail Van Buren [C 1*72 by Cklcifo Tritant-N. Y. Nfan Smd., lid DEAR ABBY: Now I know that I have truly seen everything! My husband and I have owned and operated a small florist shop for the last IS years, and I have encountered some unusual situations. But the one I had yesterday beats them all. Two middle-aged women came into the shop together and asked what I had to offer in the way of a "Bon Voyage" wreath, so I showed them what I had in my catalog. I asked if a man or a woman was going abroad, and one of the women replied, angrily: "It is for my sister's FUNERAL!" I must have shown my amazement because she then added: "If you were a true Christian you would consider death as the beginning of a long, happy trip." Abby, I do consider myself a Christian, and I refused to sell that woman a "Bon Voyage" wreath for her sister's funeral. When my husband came in, I told him what had happened and he laughed and said: "You should have sold it to her." I was very much upset by my husband's response as I have always considered death to be a very solemn occasion. Maybe you or some of your readers could tell me what they would have done. SHOCKED IN ALBUQUERQUE DEAR SHOCKED: I vote with yonr husband. How one views death is a highly personal matter. If the woman wanted to wish her deceased sister a happy trip, I'd have •old her a "Bon Voyage" wreath. TV tonight . . . Entertainer Awards Set Presented by COMMUNITY TV SIGNAL CO.

HACKBERRY (Celtis Occidentalis) The relative scarcity of hackberry in the Estherville community might indicate to some people that this tree is undesirable. On the contrary hackberry is a very desirable tree for park, yard, or windbreak. Hackberry has a broad general adaptation for dry or moist soil but seems to show some preference for bottomlands and slopes. It is completely hardy for northwest Iowa and has relatively few problems with respect to insects or disease. Most hackberry trees are susceptible to a fungus that causes the formation of little clumps of fine distorted twigs known as "witches brooms." Some people might become alarmed over these formations, which are relatively harmless. The hackberry tree may grow to a height of 60 feet or more and will have a wide spread of branches if not crowded. It has a medium growth rate. A relatively young hackberry between the senior high school building and the Voc-Ag building is keeping pace with an ash tree in that area. Hackberry is a member of the elm family but is not a true elm. The general shape, of the tree and.pfjjhe leaves bears a resemblance to American elm, but the leaves are more lance-shaped and are; somewhat more pale in color. The twigs somewhat more pale in color. The twigs are more stubby and rough than those of the elm. The small berrylike fruit is purplish In color and has a pit similar to a cherry. ¥a^;:$SS::8£^ It is a favorite bird food. People who shy away from "dirty trees" need have no fears of hackberry. Hackberry is most easily identified by its characteristic bark, which is grayish and very rough, with high narrow ridges and with wide furrows and smooth patches between. Except on the very largest trunks and the smallest branches the bark resembles the cereal "grapenuts." The wood is moderately heavy and strong, but this characteristic does not interest the average householder except to the degree that the tree is strong in its resistance to wind. Anyone wishing to see representative samples of mature hackberry trees may observe those in front of Roosevelt elementary school or near the log cabin in Riverside Park or in the yard of Henry M. Larsen at 115 North 5th Street. &::%%¥:W:W^^ Ringsted Mrs. Hoien Hosts ODO PUBLIC NOTICE PUBLIC NOTICE Consolidated Report of Condition of "Emmet County State Bank" of Estherville in the State of Iowa and Domestic Subsidiaries at the close of business on December 31, 1971.

And all it cost you was three long, sleepless nights. And a alight caaa of heartburn. If you had gone to H ft R Block, on the other hand, you could have relaxed while someone else figured out your return. Quickly and confiden- % tially. Probably unlike any way you've ever done before. And, when you figure your own, you may be entitled to deductions you're not taking and taking deductions you're not entitled to. For instance, do you know all about deductions for child care or casualty losses? Or, that if your income increased over the last few years, you may save tax dollars by ''income averaging?" And even if you did, would you know how to go about "income averaging" to begin with? Probably not. And there's no reason why you should. After all, you're an amateur when it comes to doing income tax. You see, when it comes to income taxes, amateurs should depend on H ft R Block. We have over 6,000 conveniently located offices manned by thousands of specially trained personnel. They're and friendly people who are anxious to help you. They'll sit you down over a free cup of coffee and show you some things about your income tax that you might never have known existed. Furthermore, if your return is audited we will accompany you, at no extra cost, to the Internal Revenue Service and explain how your return was prepared, even though we will not act as your legal representative. This means that HftR Block is ready to offer you year 'round tax service for just one low fee a year, with no extra charge for audits and estimates. HftR Block's charges start at $5 and the average cost was under $12.50 for the 7 million families we served last year. Which is somewhat less than what you paid. Not to mention the fact that aggravation isn't tax deductible. And we are. DONT LET AN AMATEUR DO H*R BLOCK'S JOB. H&R Block. TV iac—c tax aeepfc, Man.
