UalatbJon, used according to directions, was advised for oth- er problems. Rose care stated covering should not be removed boo soon in the spring. Much of the dam- age to roses comes from cok windburn in early spring. Cover should not be removed unti May and then only a little at a time. NURSERY STOCK How to keep early nursery stock was also dealt with. Plants arriving too early to pu in a permanent place should be heeled in with tops toward the south.

By LEETA WHITKOW Herald News Service WRENTHAM Ted Rudd of Wrentham r e c e n t ly returned from 21-day trip to Japan. About 314 hours after he left Calgary he vas in Anchorage, Alaska, and hours later be was in Tokyo. Tokyo, with t population of 1114 million people, comprises more than one-tenth of Japan's population and is the location of the Imperial Palace, the Olympic swimming pool, the Kokyo Judo Hall, Shrine Garden and many temples. While there Mr. Rudd took a lour to the Kamakura's Great Buddha, the Machiman Shrine, and to the Yokchama Silk Cen- tre. An evening was spent at a Japanese Geisha house Matsu- 3aya, .entertained by Geisha girls dining dinner of sukiyaki aiding an hour-long floor show at the ImperiaT Theatre. Before leaving Tokyo be visited Kabuki theatre of dra ma portrayed'by an all maie cast and Takafaiuka theatre for a four hour, long modern stage show performed by world renowned all girl troupe Mr. Rudd went to Koyot by the new Super Tokaido train that travelled at'a rate of 120 miles an hour.-He reports tba the scene of the Fuji mountains seen enroute was something never to be forgotten. Four days were spent in Osa ka, the site of Expo TO. Mr Rudd's impressions of were that it was larger than Montreal Expo in 1967, but re- latively'the same. He said the Canadian pavilion was attrac tive complemented with the f e d-coated Royal Canadian Mounted Police on horse. H noted that instead of them hav ing their hands on their guns they bad their hands on their pencils as they were busy sign- ing autographs for the visitors Mr. Rudd noticed, too, the de- creased number of visitors Expo at night. He said tha when he was at Expo in Moo (real one couldn't enter x pavilions without standing line for a long time at iny hour of the day or night, where- as, at Qjaka, after 7 p.m. there was no delay whatever. He indicated the Russian pa- vilion would probably be the most outstanding pavilion. A full course Japanese meal budget, administered I Taber for the town and mu- cipality, calls for' total expen- titures of which includes for salaries, wages and rograra, for Iransporta- oa, for miscellaneous administration costs, and or portable pool and arts and van operation.

Expo cost less than while Scandinavian smorgasbord itb, trimmings was as high as A 13-hour cruise on the Kan- sai Kisen steamship to Beppu a highlight and Mr. Rudd ays it takes little reasoning to explain why so many honey- mooners in Japan take this oumey. Beppu is a seaport town of earn and boiling wells and Takasakiyana Mountain is a re- Ktition of Yellowstone Na- doal Paifc in Wyoming, but mch smaller. It was here that Mr. Rudd made acquaintance with a well educated Japanese English eacher who earns a month in'his profession. Mr. Rudd saw many pearls in Japan nut was unable o distinguish between the real pearl and that of imitation. It vas possible to buy an oyster with a pearl in it for 300 yens or 84 cents, while the value of >earl necklaces ranged any- where from to In the southern part of Japan 'arming was one of the indus- ries, with winter wheat grow- ng a foot high. Many terraced arms, the size of a room, were cultivated oo the sides of the mountains. Seven acres was the most and that a farmer was allow- ed to own. Another highlight was a trip made by bus and ferry to gasalti which is a ship building city. It was'at one time the only city that would accept for- eign trade ships. Here is lo- cated the Nagaski Bomb Mu- seum which was educating, but saddening. The bomb killed people and hospitalized as many. How- ever, the gloominess was over shadowed with cherry blossoms and oranges on the trees. Hiroshima was eight hours by a second class train from Nagasaki. It is a new town with only one building left from the pre-bomb time. A large mu- seum shews the horror of war. The bomb's heat melted and burned everything including rocks and glass, and twisted steel trusses and caused all but total destruction. Upon visaing the Tokyo Mita Lion's Club meeting Mr. Rudd was welcomed and presented with a crest flag of their, club.
