10A The Mountain Messenger, Thursday, December 13, 1990 Helen Woodward Willows, salix, from the family saltcaceae, are an ancient tree with fossils dating hack to the Cretaceous period, the third and last phase of the geologic Meso- zoic time when dinosaurs disap- peared and flowering plants be- gan to develop. Of the nearly 300 species varying in height from 1 Inch to over 100 feet, North /Xanerlca can claim over 100 spe- cies, salix nigra, often called black willow or pussy-willow, is the most common. In Europe and Asia white willow, salix alba, Is found to be more predomi- nant. Since the}, are fast growing and not very particular about soil conditions, they are often used to control erosion. Eventhough white willows contain more tannins than the black, barks from both trees are known to have been used for medicine dating back to the Stone Age. To reduce fevers, wil- low bark tea was a common pre- scription among the American Indians. Salt(m, an analgesic, Is another hnportant compound derived from the willow tree bark. It reduces inflammations, is effective against rheumatism, and is a good astrigent. Heart- burn, stomach aches, sore gums and inllammed tonsils are also aided hy drinking this tea. Exter- nally, a wash of the tea solution is good tbr sores, burns and mi- nor wounds while a willow tea footbath provided a good solu- tion lor sweaty feet. All healing properties aside, the Chinese consider the willow an herb of immortality because even the smallest piece of branch is capable of producing another tree. No wonder the ex- pression "knock on wood" is at- tributed in the willows. Today, willow bark has been chemically synthes~ed into what is known as aspirin. / it ", on these GM and Ford Trade-in's at mn of Covington "We're Making it Simple" 1 SPECIAL ' SALE 90 Chev.

Board of Directors meeting. Winners of thts year's calves were: Amy Feamster of the Coffman Hill Sod Busters 4-H Club, Gwen Lytle of the Smooth Hilltop Hustlers 4-H Club, and Reagan Simms of the Coffman Hill Sod Busters 4-H Club. The drawing, sponsored by the Bank of White Sulphur Springs, Is held at the November meeting of the Board and is open to all 4-H'ers In Greenbrier County who have completed a )revious year's livestock project. The 4-H member must take the heil~r project and raise the calf into a mature cow. The 4-H'er then places the first off-spring back into the ring or sells It in the name of the sponsor. Many 4-H'ers get the first start on their cow herds for the future through this program. The animals also give the 4-H'ers the opportunity to show and ex- hibit at the State Fair. 4-H'ers interested in livestock and wanting to learn more about the 4-H program may contact the Greenbrier County Extension Office at 204 North Court Street, Lewisburg, or call 645-1525.
