[ A New Start A new star on earthl No, she was not a fallen star from Heaven above, but a new star shining before us, in her every- day llfe, Thls star has been blest to live 80 years and most of those years have been fruitful years. She has done exercise ac- claimed by doctors, and research to help people in sickness, and in health. That exercise (I'm sure you have guessed it) is walking! She sets an example before young and old alike. She is known (as I've heard via the Greenbrier Vine) for her visits to the sick, handicapped, and the elderly. She goes on foot most of the time. Another plus from this shining star is her smile and pleasant disposition. A cheerful hello is her greeting in her neighborhood. Aren't they the Ibrtunate people to have her in their citizenship. She also shines by example in her church by doing good deeds. She records the services and takes these tapes to shut-ins. This shining star picks up the mail for those who can't get to the post-office. Her community has no home mail delivery. What a blessing this earthly star is to so many in so many ways. She hasn't time for idleness, she is letting her 'little light shine' to guide others by her actions, not by gossip or prejudice. "I have to be busy," she said. "I'm the kind who can't sit down." She also volunteers an average of 20 hours a month at the Committee on Aging's Senior Citizens' Center. There she sets tables, serves meals, cleans tables and washes dishes. She was the first person in the town to volunteer her help at the Center. That was in 1982. I have eaten there. Those ladies are good homemakers and tradi- tional cooks.

Last year, more value-minded farmers picked Massey-Ferguson than any other make. In fact, one of every five tractors now sold in the Western World is an M-F. Which makes Massey-Ferguson the Western World's largest tractor manutacturer. One ot the big reasons for this popularity is the great value ol the 50-90 PTO hp line el M-F 300 Series tractors.
