The season is late and there's much to do, but who can work in the fields in the rain? IJnda Gay's first birthday came at that time, so we decided to help her observe it[ Missouri countryside is beautiful any time of year and we did enjoy seeing it in it's delicate green garb of spring. Redbud trees were blooming and con- trasted in color with the new leaves on other trees and some that were blossomed out with mowy white in the timber. Seeing the redbuds in their natural habitat is especially beautiful. These small trees have such odd color flowers which come out before the leaves make an ap- pearance. One place I can hardly bear to see them, though, is close to a red barn or other red building. To me, these colors absolutely ruin each other when they are together and seem so wasted. Lilacs were blooming profusely, as were fruit trees. OOMPLETE LEOTION OF 8-TRACK STEREO TAPES special introductor oiler! IIli I the regular list price o! any tape with this ad. OFFER LIMITED!

WHILE IN St. Louis, we drove down to the riverfront and went aboard an exact replica of the "Santa Maria" which was docked there. Nine years of research went into just the planning of this sturdy little copy. Then it was constructed with 15th century tools and methods so that it is actually capable of sailing. However, it was brought to the USA from Spain for the New York World's Fair and is now touring other places. Because it is so authentic in detail, even down to cabin boys in costume (though they were eating hot dogs in between helping), we felt as though we had actually been with Oaristopher Columbus for a little while. Just as in his day, the ship had been swabbed with pitch and that smoky, heavy odor made it even more realistic. History has it that on Christmas eve, 1492, a teenage apprentice seaman had the midwatch but he dozed off when the Santa Maria was anchored, along with the Nina and Pinta, off Haiti. Swells from seaward caused the anchored Santa Maria to drag and ground on a reef and drove it high on the knife edged coral. The breaking seas rolled the vessel back and forth and the coral teeth cut her hull like a saw. Waking, the young seaman realized the danger and "gave tongue" to Columbus, who could not save the sinking vessel. So, one of the world's first manned "spce ships" failed to return, having carried a crew across an unknown universe of ocean, as much "outer space" to the people of that time as the heavens are to us. ONE OF THE AREASthat is being explored right here in Shelby County RIGHT NOW is planning activities for people just beyond middle age. Information in the mail recently announced that a first meeting along this line is scheduled for May 15th at 2 p.m. at the Federal Savings and Loan Community Room. As I understand it, both men and women over 55 are welcome to attend and a program including both information and recreation is set up. Criticism has often been heard regarding the lack of ac- tivities for this age group, so here is a chance to do something about it. If you are in this bracket and looking for "things to do", why not come and see what's cookin'? As Columbus must have figured, we never know how a thing will turn out until we try it! BCNU. Mort.
