In spite of our and lack of rain. Spring is persistent in tryi.ig to take over the countryside. In the Spring a young man's fancy turns to Love (and I don't mean Jny>. Birds are building their nesls and catching unwary worms. Farmers are now beginning to plant their crops and speculate on their success or failure. After all is said and done.
