In both cases conditions exist that need correcting; one in the soil, the source of his income. The other in the body, the source of his existance. Now Is one of the best times to take a good soil sample. From this an' intricate laboratory test is run and recommendations made. Research at Michigan State University has placed into the hands of qualified interpreters information so that proper diagnosis can be given.

Medium-sized pickles don't get a very fair share of attention in the garden patch ai> the farm of Mr. and Mrs. Walter Bolle 3-1/2 miles east and a little south from Clare. Their daughter, Jeannine Ann, is grabbing all the fun with cucumber oddities in the very largest ■ and the very smallest extremes! Those littlest Ones? Well, they are growing up to be pickles in pop Bag Limits Relaxed For Duck Hunters Michigan waterfowl hunters can look forward this fall to more shooting days and bigger bag limits on ducks and coots . The Conservation Commission has selected an Oct. 5 - Nov. 8 duck hunting season which will be 10 days longer than a year ago. This season's daily and possession limits on ducks were set at four and eight, double the 1962 quotas. Michigan's 1962 shooting restrictions on mallards and black ducks have been relaxed. Hunters may include two mallard or black ducks — singly of combined — in their daily- bag. Last season, hunter take was limited to only one mallard or one black duck per day. Canvasbacks and red- head ducks will remain off the legal hunting list nation-wide The state's waterfowl season will again have a noon opener. After the first bottles, or cuke-corks or something like that! Mrs. Bolle found some pop bottles in the garden one day, and discovered they couldn't be picked up because they were attached to cucumber vines by the stems of some little pickles growing down the bottle neck with the tiny pickles inside the bottles. Jeannine's experiment had followed an uncle's advice that if very tiny' cucumbers, were stuffed down the bottle necks, some day when they grew larger, her friends would be mystified with the question of how big cukes got inside the bottles through those narrow necks1 It works! Already the growing pickles are too fat to come back out the bottle necks, and. Jeannine is wondering if they will grow big enough to break the bottles? Ahd about the largest.. Well, the biggest cucumber from -the garden is a full 12 inches long. The giant pickle is a good appetizing color. — Solid Green, and solid, firm to the hand, too. It is so large and heavy that it is rather Unusual it hasn't turned yellow, or Spunky". The Bolles have kept it cold since it was picked, and it might find its way ihto the pickling syrup yet* Jeannine can tell her schoolmates next week about her pickles -- some that grew Up already in glass bottles, and another one that there was no jar large enough to contain.
