,.+ o.,o TIMES Your lIm Ik HARTFORD, KENTUCKY, JANUARY 27, 1972 10 R ockport Personals Church Youths Attend REPERTOIRE By Wellington Matthews People Are A Sight There's an expression used around Fordsville, I don't know exactly what it means but I understand its use. It is sometimes used as a form of criticism and then again as a term of endearment. Regardless of its true meaning when it's used it conveys the intended impression. Very often someone is described merely by the statement, "they are a sight". I once heard of a case where a small child told her grandmother, "men and women are both sights, but I don't know which is the sightiest." One of the sights about people and one of the strangest things about human nature is that every person likes to feel he's an unusual individual--different from every other human being on this earth. And, it's true. There are no two persons exactly alike. But here we have an enigma when you realize that while most people like to think they're different--they try as hard as they can to be alike. Irately we hear and read a lot about conformity. Someone is always telling us to be different, to think for ourselves, to be indivuduals, i think this is good advice, and that you should give it a lot of thought beforeyou start acting and thinking like someone else. I recently read that the human race was divided into two groups. One of the groups is very large, and it was estimated that this group make up about 95 percent of the human race; and the other group is small, and make up the remaining 5 percent. No matter how you slice the population it insists on breaking into these 2 groups. The big group, the 95 percent, might be called the followers or the watchers; the little group of 5 percent seem always to be the leaders or the doers. Skating Party Monday The young people of the Baptist church had a skating party Monday night. Several attended including their teachers and Rev. and Mrs. Edgar Taylor. Mr. and Mrs. John Kellems and Martine and Tammy Everley visited Mr. and Mrs. Robert Dortch Saturday.

Mrs. Truman Everley and Mrs. Gilbert Mathis of Murray, Kentucky spent Monday night and Tuesday in Elizabethtown. Kentucky attending the Baptist State Evangelism Conference. Mrs. Jack Simpson was in Louisville, Kentucky with Mrs. Johnnie O'Brian Wednesday. Johnnie O'Brian had back surgery and is in St. Anthony's Hospital in Room 536, Louisville.

Mr. Rufus Bishop of Hammond, Indiana spent Thursday night with the Hulet Curtis. Mr. and Mrs. George Boyd of Madisonville spent Sunday with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Homer Boyd. Mrs. David Moore at- tended church at the Baptist Sunday and spent the day with Mr. and Mrs. Cecil Curtis. Stork Shower For Mrs. T. Sanderfur It seems that the 95 percent group never got the word, they stay in the same rut and make the some mistakes over and over, but the 5 percent knox enough to break away. Why do we have the big group of followers and the small gro.up of leaders? Is it because the large group feels safe in going along, thinking alike and acting alike? Do they feel more "in" because everyone else is doing and saying the same things they are? If this is their reasoning--then we're in trouble, for the crowd usually don't know where: they're going. The people who make up the crowd are a ,,si,,.   san rfr, Mrs. Tennyson Sanderfur Stewart, Mrs. Emerson was honored January 18 Embry, Mrs. John R. with a stork shower at the Parker, Mrs. Tim Barnes, home of Mrs. Barbara Mrs. Loran Leach, Mrs. Hodge.

Raggard farm, Olaton. Is there another weeping cedar in Ohio County or in the Blue Grass state? Henry Converse, soil scientist for the Soil Conservation Service, Hartford, noted this unusual tree while working on a soil survey in that area. Converse sent graft wood of this tree to the National Arboretum in Washington, D.C. The National Arboretum maintains a worldwide collection of all adapted plants and exotic trees. These are plants and trees that can adapt to the Arboretum growing season. Do you realize that trees help supply the oxygen we must have? Each year an acre of young trees release enough oxygen to keep 18 people alive. Now is the time to order trees for spring planting. If you need assistance in placing orders for tree seedlings contact the Soil Conservation Service office.
