NMTHWIST ARKANSAS TIMM. By HAL BOYLE Winchester, Va.-W-America is becoming more and more festival- conccious. In the last generation every section of the country has originated regional celebrations that rival in color and splendor the best of Europe's fetes. One of the most unusual and lavish of these spectacles is the annual Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival. Itj theme: "The bounties of nature are the gifts of God." The festival is set against a beautiful backdrop of some 700,000 apple trees that look--in their gowns of pink and white bloom-like a vast convention of lovely brides. For two days some 200,000 visitors throng the historic streets which once knew the stride of George Washington and Stonewall Jackson. There are so many parties, -dances, parades and pageants during the festival that a man going to one is likely to meet himself coming back from another. People drive hudreds of miles to attend them.. The unusual thing is how a city of less than 15,000 population can stage a show of such proportions. The secret behind it is a story of community effort and cooperation based on home-town pride. "There are no full time professional workers," said Tom Baldridge, director general of the festival. "But we have 2,300 volunteer workers--and we start planning a full year in advance." Some 1,600 students and teachers worked months to prepare "The Harvest of the Years," a pageant highlighting Winchester's crowded 200 years. The city, oldest community west of the Blue Ridge, changed hands more than 70 times during the Civil War and more than 100 engagements were fought in its vicinity. If You're ---- You havt a great ?r«at in start for you! This year the festival queen was Nina "Honey Bear" Warren, .18, daughter of California's governor. She was crowned by Bernard M. Baruch Some 5,000 marched in the parade, which featured more than 60 drum and bugle corps. "We finally had to limit the number,", said Baldridge. '"We've had bands come from as far as Miami to march with us." . The festival is about a $250,000 production, but the community doesn't look on it as a moneymaking venture. "People can conic here and 'see our show without ever spending single penny," said Baldridge. And that's exactly what a lot of them do. They even bring along their own box lunches. DOROTHY DIX -- CONTINUED FROM PAGE FOUR great a reward for the blessings you have. Wake up, · son! Be thankful for your boons'--- and show it. TV is very nice in Its place, hut it cannot be expected to provide all a woman's--or man's^--relaxation and entertainment. The pleasures of human companionship, the thrill, of- dancing to "live" music, the satisfaction of sitting' down to a meal without worrying about dishes piling up in the kitchen--these are simple forms of entertainment to which any woman is entitled-. In fact, they'll do even a hard-working man some good. Nothing is so conducive to a sluggish mind as a j constant diet of TV. Television taken in proper doses can be entertaining, educational stimulating,, but as a steady thing it can become very boring. Take your wife out dancing once a month; in fact, take her out twice a month, and be humbly grateful for the blessings she has brought you.

Can you continue IQ love a person who"has caused so much heartache that" you can't bear to see him? Could I be happy with a husband in the future, yet still love an ex-husband who hurt me so much that I coudn't take him aack? Is it natural for me to think of him once in a while, or will he always come first for me? JANET Answer: Your letter was evidently written in the darkest hours following a marital breakup, and your complete hopelessness is readily understandable, ' under those circumslan'ces. However, the mere fact that yo can even think of a future husband while in the. throes of despair over just losing one is a good sign that a complete recovery is not far in the offing. Your pride seems to bo the real sufferer--not your heart. Whatever outrages your ex-husband committed, my guess is that they wounded your vanity far more than your heart. Probably you never will entirely forget him, but as time goes on his image will become dimmer and dimmer until one day you'll actually have to make an effort to remember what he looked like. . Don't try to put yourself in the place of a tragic, fictional heroine whose heart was broken to bits by a reckless lover". Modern maidens are made of sterner stuff. Dwelling on, dark events of the past will only delay the period of recovery. The heartache attending a broken romance is\one of the most fleeting, though acute, pains. Being able, at this heartrending point, to see a man in your future at all, proves that your recovery is already well under way, Marjorie Haines, only girl on the U.S. Olympic Equestrian team, worked in a dress shop to help pay for her training.

Methodists Ask Leffwing Group To Change Name Church Conference Urges End To Roce Discrimination San Francisco-WJ-Tbe Methodist General Conference swung intn its final session today after detlins decisively with the touchy question of the church attitude toward the unofficial Methodist Federation for Social Action.
