Valentine Girl Fools Doctors, Still Lives Remembered By Nation When Her Need Became Known AUanla-l/fVA trail little girl with cancer v/hn won hearts around the world last.year when ·he asked for a valentine 1* stronger no 1 . 1 .' and hopas she can help others this February 14. A year ago, Jacquelyn Marre, 13, confined to bed or a wheel chair and given only three months tt live, wistfully hoped she "could be someone's valentine." Through the marvels of modern communication and the unpredictable wonder of h u m a n kindness, the wish was answered in staggering fashion from the far corners of the earth. "ibout a million and a h a l f pieces of mail flooded the modest l\Iarre home, literally causing the floors to sag. The waste paper alone'netted school drives several hundred dollars. More than SOD boxes o' candy and other gilts pourerl in. Opening of letters has Rone on and on, but still an estimated fO.OOO envelopes remain sealed. The candy and boxes were sent to orphans' homes and children's hospitals. Jackie, who cat. walk today, observed, in her senile, halting way "f'm so glad I got the candy a n j valentines because I could Cold Snap Could Result in Serious Damage fo Peach Crop, Extension Expert Believes *»n Kxtension Service expert luilay said that Arkansas Rrowers are worried over possibilitj that a severe cold snap might do serious harm to the peach crop. The wrong kind of weather combination could easily destroy tht crop this year, before it even Eeis started, he said. The problem, is explained by Kxlension Service H o r t i c u l t u r i s t Earl J. Allen, it ihit _pearh trees have passed throush tl.eir w i n ter "rest period" much faster than usual. · Once through this period, trees are ready to start huddinf if a u'cek or 10 days of warm weather comes along. If buds came out too suon, i subsequent cold snap could ipe out the crop. The period of dormancy ended* al.out three weeks earlier t h a n usual this year. According to Allen, this was caused by the unusual amounts of cold weather p\- P'jrienced in the state in October, November and December. By cold weather, A l l e n means temperatures of under 40 to 50 degrees. "It takes about 700 to SCO hours of cold weather to break the dormancy of elbertas, and perhaps as many as 1,000 hours for other peach varieties used in Arkansas. We've hart t h a t mucri and more." Mo damage has been done yet, Allen emphasized. And at the present stage, it would take temperatures of 10 degrees or lower to do any major harm. Later on, however, as buds open, temperatures not nearly so low could cause tremendous damage, he said.
