•OR PHOTOGRAPHER Cypress Gardens Offers Best Bet ' By IRVING DESFOR AP Newsfeatnres After more than a quarter cen- i tury of shooting vacation pictures, my .nomination for the tourist attraction which is most photography-minded and helpful to camera fans is Florida's Cypress Gardens. Located in that state's center area, heart of its citrus belt, it is 7a tropical wonderland which specializes in exciting daily water.; ski shows all year around. it has been called a photographer's paradise because of the magnificent masses of rare and colorful flowers along its winding 'aterways, its palm - fringed la- ob'rts and man-made tropical is- uids, its lovely models in crino- ne' hoop skirts ready to add the ayor of the Old South to the j'cefl'd or to join the photography's family for a personal touch. 1 Brit what really makes it a par'- •. for the visitor with a cam's the spirit in which he is -ned, encouraged and aided, special viewing stands are -,ide for camera fans only. 1 used in the morning light 9 other is better in the aft•' They present the best ang- 1 hooting the fastmoving wa- w under expert guidance. |al announcer is on hand /the shots on proper exposed the key moments for j. action. linnouncer, checking his Beter constantly, calls out 3 exposure readings for all , types of films in color iiack-and-whfte for still and ovie cameras. When chang- the illumination take place, a"s are kept posted and are W A NTTST told to open up or to close down their lenses a half stop or a full stop as the case might be. From past experience, every effort is made to spare the photographers the frustration of funning out of film during the proceedings. The action has been timed to fill a full roll of 8mm movie or a 20-exposure roll of 35mm film. This is announced beforehand so the fans can get off to a fresh start. They are advised when the action is too far away or going away from the camera and cued precisely when to start the movies or shoot the stills so as to capture the most thrilling stunts at their peak. Under one photo stand, there are several darkrooms to load or change films safely. There is personnel present to load cameras properly for beginners or to investigate camera trouble. And, of course, all types of films are available on the grounds. After each water show, the camera fans are invited to shoot close- ups of the pretty aquamaids and the ski stars and are again given proper exposure readings for all types of films and cameras. A colorful Cypress Gardens title board is also made available so that fans can shoot their families or one of the Southern belles for an appropriate beginning or end to the movie or slide story.

Pleasure Boat Is Abandoned After Blast GRAND ISLE, La. (AP) - An explosion and fire aboard a 45-foot pleasure boat disabled the craft and forced its seven occupants, all of Baton Rouge, to abandon it Saturday about 12 miles south of here in the Gulf of Mexico. The three men, a woman, a teen-ager and two children floated in life jackets about four hours before an Ocean Drilling & Exploration Co. boat rescued them and took them ashore for treatment of minor burns and shock. The Coast Guard at New Orleans said it was searching for the craft, the Allegro, which was only partially sunken. Aboard were Marcus Jones of (386 North St.) Baton Rouge, the owner; Mr. and Mrs. Joe Wens and their 3-year-old son Clifford, Glenn Krate and 3-year-old Mark Krate; and Richard Bostock, 15. A spokesman for the drilling company said he learned there was an explosion in the boat's engine room, which punched holes in the craft's side and bottom.

This book, sponsored by the American Rose Society, contains a wealth of information written by garden experts. In the honor spot at the beginning of the 200-page, illustrated volume is an article titled, "What About Your Children," by George A. Carle of Brooklyn. Carle asks if you are sharing with your children the pleasure of working. Perhaps, he says, you share with them only the cultivating or watering so that some of your work is made easier, but you don't even take time to explain what they are accomplishing. Generally, he says, (and this lits home because I have done this often) you tell the children not to touch the plants; don't jlay with the tools; keep out of the fertilizer; stay away from the sprayer, it's dangerous. "Wouldn't it be better?" Carle asks, "if you took a little time to explain why you do .this or that and why you do not want them to do certain chores? Most children are bright and are willing to learn. If you take a little time to teach them, you give them valuable information that has taken you years to learn and which they cannot get in school. . . "If your garden is small you can share it. It would be better though if the children actually had a piece of the garden that they would be responsible for, administered under your supervision and guidance. The joys of harvesting would be theirs. As you preen and proudly display your prized fruits, vegetables or flowers, do you think of how much more a thrill it would be for the children? Have you thought of what your companionship and praise would be worth? It doesn't take too much time. "How many of you are bankers, lawyers, dentists, doctors or responsible people in Various enterprises? How often do you discuss this hobby of gardening with others and pride yourself on your attained knowledge? So why not help your children to help themselves and share your garden, your knowledge and your pleasure with them?" * * * Guess who won the seventh an- naul Sterling Bowl Tournament for flower arranging this year at Newark? It was the lone male among 14 experts remaining from the 110 nominees chosen in 41 states. John C. Bowling Jr. of Gaffney, S.

MAHIWOOO IHQWINO CENTER PLAID Prayer Asked For Success of Vatican Council By FRANCES LEW1NE WASHINGTON (AP)-The 26 U.S. Roman Catholic bishops asked all Christians Saturday to pray for success of the forthcoming second Vatican Council, a worldwide gathering of the church. In a 2,500-word statement, the Catholic bishops viewed as "favorable indeed" the general prospects for internal renewal of the church through the council. Especially they asked Catholics in the United States to join in a "Novena of prayer and penance" during the days immediately preceding the council, which starts Oct. 11. The bishops urged that this be carried out in "a spirit of daily sacrifice" in all parishes, schools and religious houses of this country so that "none may fail in the council's great work of full evangelical renewal within the church." In addition, they invited "all our non-Catholic brethren who ?lory in the name of Christian to join us in asking that the Holy Spirit enlighten and guide the ecumenical council so that it may >ecome an instrument for the promotion of Christian unity according to the mind of Christ." The American bishops will join with some 3,000 of their brethren from around the world in the Vatican conclave, the first ecumenical council held in 92 years. By EARL ARONSON There was a 15-foot sugar maple tree in New York City's skyline recently. The tree was used in ceremonies marking completion of the 50th and top floor of the jiew Americana hotel. Hotel officials explained that a tree or bigfich has long been a symbol fot*cbmpletion of high construe- tioriV In a so-called test-tube forest on the Yacolt Burn of southwestern Washington state, experimenters determined that trees fertilized with nitrogen produced four times as many seed cones last year as untreated ones. Tests with Douglas fir to determine the effect of fertilizer on seed cone production disclosed that diameter growth of trees had been increased 50 per cent since the project started in 1955. Height growth was increased 40 per cent. Do limbs of young trees move higher from the ground as the tree grows? Forestry folk say no. The limbs always remain the same distance from the ground. Limbs thicken and lengthen as the tree grows, but the tree gains in height only at its crown. Trees do* most of their growing in the spring. A Davey tree expert says trees have had most of (he season's twig and branch growth by the time they have burst into full leaf. This r, especially true of those that set terminal buds, such as oaks, ma* pies, ash, pine, spruce and firs. If your tree has grown less than a few inches of new wood, or foliage is sparse or off color, your tree may be signalling trouble. Enjoy your tt,«es hi the s«m> mer but don't subject them to unnecessary dangers. They should not be exposed id heat from your outdoor grill, of suffer trampling above their roots, or be roped for clotheslines or wires for outdoor lights. Clothes* lines and wires may girdle and damage trunks or limbs. Hot lights can burn close foliage. Vodka UI Proof. Distilted tm 100* c™. CHkift OUIM Imdon Dr* fihtt to-fWfir.ii Xiirtnl Spirits.
