Everybody ought to plant something, a tree, a bush, or a flower. It adds to the richness of life. Watching it gfo\v brings an interest in nature, in the sun and the rain. John Greenleaf Whittier, In his Song of Harvest, said, "Give fools their gold, and knaves their power; Let fortunes bobble and fall; Who sows a field, or trains a flower, Or plants a tree, is more than all." And here is a little warning, not a scare about Tetanus. Health authorities suggest thai, if you are a home gardener you should check with your physician on your protection against Tetanus, widely known as "lockjaw." There are only a few hundred cases a year of the disease, which is Contracted through break? in the skin such as scratches or punclures, but the fatality rate is high. Immunization shots give complete protection.

Temperatures are never below 70 or above 90 degrees. The West Indies are more than just unique tropical islandjs. Each island has its own distinct history, with relics of the past when they were sought after prizes by many nations of the old world. * On most, the comfortable traditions of England prevail. On the French islands "Joie de vivre" is the spirit. In Trinidad, where the east did meet the west, are mosques, Hindu temples, and sari-clad women. There is also an island half Dutch and half French; an island where the people speak with an Irish brogue; and' smother where French and English influence have produced an entirely new culture.
