Why docs the city of Abilene allow Jrash trucks to haul trash out to (he clly dump without being cohered or el least fix It so It will not blow all over Ihe fclghway? On N. Trcadway and Pine, on the way lo the clly dump, H looks like a city dump all the way down those streets. Trucks come by with all Idnds of trash blowing off Into the street. A. Charles Nolen of the Refuse Department says it must be trucks other than city refuse trucks because they are all covered except the brush trucks. They haven't had too much trouble with trees falling off, he says. Nolen suggests reporting immediately any cily refuse (ruck losing its load to the Refuse Department, giving the location and number ti trucks. The supervisor will make an investigation and corrective action will be taken, he says. Q. Could yon tell me where I coald obtain a (feck of (arot cards? I am also Interested In finding books telling how lo read the. cards and or nnmberology and astrology-? A. After checking all the card shops, book stores, and several other places, we decided this is a very popular subject. Everyone we talked to said they sold out as fast as they got cards in. The books on astrology are very popular and hard to keep but a couple of the book shops will order them for you. Try calling the card shops and leaving your phone number for them to call when the next shipment comes in. It they're not on hand when you call and you are in a rush, write to: Horizons Unlimited Store, 1003 West Ave., Austin, Tex., 78701, and give them your order. Q. How docs (he school board choose teachers and how do they review them for renews! of their contracts? A. Teachers are hired by a screening process by (he director of personnel and are recommended lo the board with the approval of the superintendent.

This evaluation or rating shed is turned into Ihe superintendent of personnel and is available to the school board, says A. E. Wells, superintendent of Abilene Schools. Q. Why are the children only allowed one recess a day and do not have a play period at lunch? This Is Ihe first school system I have seen thai doesn't let the children eat at lunch. A. The primary grades are usually allowed two play periods, says one elementary principal. One is a short break ar.d the other Is a supervised physical edu- cation period for the benefit of Ihe child's health. Rest periods are recommended hy the health experts after eating Instead of play, so most teachers read to the children or play records alter lunch, he says. Q. Can you give me the old rhymes lor earn day of the week on which a child Is born? I can remember only two lines; "Wednesday's child Is lull of grace, Thursday's child Is fair ol face." A. Our memory fails us, too, so Mrs. Klfa Sykes at the Children's Reference Desk in the Abilene Public Library found it in "The Family Book of Best Loved Poems." It goes like this: Monday's child is of fair face, Tuesday's child is full of grace, Wednesday's child is full of woe, Thursday's child has far In go, Friday's child is loving and giving, Saturday's child works hard for its living; and a child born on the Sabbath Is lair, and wise, and good, and gay."
