By MARIAN INMAN ••«•*•*?••••••••••••••••••)••••••••••••••••••••••* We read these days of the'grdwiflg alafm over the depletion of our forests for use of lumber, Mper sut>nlies for the nation, etc. With this facing us, 1 read with interest ih the Sep> lumber Science News Letter that something is being done aboui x it "Super Trees" are being grown, to keen the United States well stocked with lumber, paper plates, hapkiHs, cdpy paper and newsprint, the country is undergoing what some economists have ealled • "pappr exttlosion" and forest genetics expert* are breeding seedlings that grow faster,,produce more and better pulpwood, and resist diteMse. Tall, straiaht pines are expected to cover one-third of a, rnillibtt acre of Alabama w*oH- land» belonging to the Kimtt«rly-Clark'Corporation, which has produced more than 82 million Seedlings at its Coosa River nursery. - ' Scientists, convinced that .the same principle's of genetic control used to improve corn and wheat crops would also lead to better trees, discovered 44 superior trees to serve as "Brents" of the Kimberly-Clark Corporation future forpts. Cuttings from these chosen 44, nearly ideal in shape, height, limb formation and growth characteristics were grafted to root stock in the nUrsery to produce the first crop of seedlings. A 30-year rotation system of all forest lands is aimed at achieving uniform harvest and a steady increase in paper trees to help meet the expected demand for 102 million tons of paper, twice the current amount. Letters from my daughter Alice Mary and family, Dallas, Texas, tell of their good health and the busy days at school for the children and busy for Alice who volunteers help in the school where it is needed as do many busy Mothers.- Not one word of the Encephalitis spreading as I read it is doing. The early spring floods near Dallas fostered the growth of mosquitoes that are blamed for the encephalitis epidemic. I feel sure they are trying to spare me worry and hope I do not read about it. But of course I do worry especially when I read the City Health Director stating that most of the cases have been in Dallas prooer and that they have never had adequate spray equipment. What spraying they have done Was by Air Force nlanes with the insecticide Malathion, "because it is safest," Dr. Hewlet explained. I can only wait and pray that frosts or something kill the mosquitoes. From the many wonderful letters I have received from my readers this summer season, I am convinced we all lead a busy life. '-With this in mind, I think vou will eniov the following poem which is from Maryland,, but I do not know the author. ODE TO BUSY PEOPLE I make a soecial memo of important things to do. . \ ' . Although I struggle every day, I never quite get through. I check them off the J'st as fast as every job is done, But always iindernfi^tH^Jis. rest there i* another one. And always I am adding things unit'.! I have to write Another memo of the tasks I ought to expedite. - And so it pies from day to day forever without end, No matter how much'energy'-I con c tantly exnend. v .;'-•' Put then sometimes I wonder, as ;I tackln something new, How would I feel if I had no important things to do. "There is no failure «*«M»i»t in no longer trying. Thure is no defeat except from within, no realf'/ insurmountabfo barrier save our own weakners of purpose." i A wise man experienced in the ways of human nature, reached; a number of interesting conclusions that are worth preserving for the study of all mankind. Thev are simnle pnd direct and give considerable food for thought. I would like to pass them on to you, as I read them and pondered them. Sooner or later, a man, if he is wise, discovers that life is a mixture of good day* and bad, victory and defeat, give • '• :•• and take. , : ' "•:':,x" ; . '.•••••• ' He learns that it doesn't pay to be a sensitive soul; that he should let some things go ov»r his head. He learns that he who lose* his temper usually loses • ' , OUt. '* • .,-.••-, ..:- • • • He learns that all men have burnt toast for breakfast now and then, and that he shouldn't take the other fellow's grouch too seriously. He learns that the quickest way to become unpopular is to carry tales and gossip about others. He learns that buck passing always turns out to be a boomerang. He learns that most of the other feliowt are as ambitious as he is, that they have brains that are as good or better, and that hard work and not cleverness is the secret of sue> cess. He learns that no man ever got to first base alone, and that it is only through co-operative effort that we move on to ,: baMe.r things. ' '••>':•'';' ' / •• }f>f in ;He 'earns that bosses are no monsters, trying to get the vVlast 'ounce of work out of him for the least amount of pay, ' 'but that they are usually fine men who have succeeded thro- . ugh hard work and who want to do the right thing. He learns that folks are not any harder to get along with in one place than another, and that the getting along depends about 98 per cent on his own behavior, Now is the time: turday, Setrt. 24.
