Do you know that $6,000 worth of books or approximately 400 books are lost each year due to the fact that patrons do not return them? "The Library is on a very tight budget because of cuts in funds and simply cannot afford to lose books. The Library, during the month of February, is having a heart and will not charge fines this month," accord- ing to Rosemary Bugas, president of the Friends of the Library. For the convenience of elemen- tary and junior high students, a box will be placed in their schools marked with hearts where they may return books, Ms Bugas said.

Studies indicate that children with enure- sis exhibits greater incidence during times of stress. The fact that enuresis symptoms tend to occur during the first third of the sleep cycle gives weight to the hypothesis that underlying depression may be in- volved. Two or more instances of bedwetting per month in children between the ages of five and six, or at least one incident per month for older children, is considered sig- nificant. If left untreated, children with enu- resis tend to become socially withdrawn and fearful, teaming to avoid situations in which they might become embarrassed. Fortunately, a number of medical and psychological interventions exist to ad- dress this problem. It is important to seek appropriate c!in~cal assistance, Call me. Iql g~ve you more information.

I For me the interestingI hadn't looked at it in years. This the garden plan is that the time, leafing through its pages, I dis- and labels of the drawing was a space marked "Bird Bath or Dogwood." Two grass paths criss- crossed through the center of the clover. Grandmother had used ei- ther a compass or a saucer to make her circles perfectly round, and she had carefully printed numbers along the paths and beds to indicate the locations of plants. A corresponding chart at the bottom of the page matched the flower to the number. I spread it out on the dining room table under a good light, and deter- mined to get to know my grand- mother better. Gardens always tell you as much about the gardener as the plants. I welcomed this opportu- nity to come at my grandmother from an adult point of view. As a girl I had chased butterflies around her purple iris and helped my grandfa- ther pick worms off her tomatos be- fore she discovered them. We both tried to head off the inevitable hys- teria that occurred when Grand- mother saw worms on he[ prize Big Boys. She would stomp her feet and pull her hair. Studying her plan for a flower bed that never materialized, I could see she tended toward perfection- ism. The plan was perfectly symmet- ricai, nothing left to chance. She wishy-washy.
