To kill aphids, mix one teaspoon of
dishwashing liquid with a gallon of water
and spray directly onto the insects. The
soap solution will smother them. Four to
six hours later, rinse your plants, since
soapy water makes it difficult for the
plants to breaths.
Itrs A Small World...

It's a mind-boggling small world for Tulia pastor Rev. Beane Bishop of the
First Christian Church.
In Germany, her niece, Kirsten Leach, and a former Tulian, Danna Behne
Boyles and her new husband James Boyles, all teach in U. S. Department of Defense
Dependents Schools (DoDDS) and art friends. Only recently, thanks to the Tulia
Herald, have they discovered their mutual Tulia connections.
The Herald, on page 1-B of the March 24 issue, featured a photo and article
about Danna and James' wedding recently in Germany. Rev. Bishop's ««»■*• and
brother-in-law, the Revs. Muriel and Bob Leach in Columbia, Missouri, subscribe
to the Herald, read the article, and mailed it on to their daughter, Kirsten.
Later, on Sunday afternoon, April 17, they talked with her by overseas long
distance telephone. She delightedly said that she immediately recognized the
newlyweds in the photo.
Kirsten is on the DoDDS faculty at the Mainz, Germany, U.S. military base,
about 25 miles southwest of Frankfurt, and Danna and James at the Butzbach,
Germany, U. S. military base about 25 miles northeast of Frankfurt They all also
belong to the same Frankfurt American theatre group, recently saw "Oklahoma"
there, and are seeing "Guys and Dolls" this week.
Danna is the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Dan Behne of Tulia. Kirsten
explained why Danna and James had to have two wedding ceremonies. First was a
civil one in Frankfurt because German law recognizes only civil marriages as legal.
That afternoon they had a Christian wedding at Butzbach.
Kirsten has a brother and sister-in-law, Cori and Julie Leach, in Lubbock. He
is a Navy jet pilot instructor at Reese Air Force Base and she is a Special Education
specialist for the Lubbock public school system. Rev. Bishop says that Kirsten
expects to be in Tulia and Lubbock this summer.

Beth and 1 have told our minority interest
in The Herald back to Wendell and Mary

for the Toolcys and their staff. I especially
appreciated Wendell stepping in during my
recent surgery and illness.
This publication is regarded as one of the
leaders in its field in the western half of the
state and among the most quoted. I am con-
vinced it will continue to maintain that status.

anything but the highlight of my career in
journalism — for a variety of reasons, in-
cluding family tragedies — I wouldn't lake
for them due simply to the opportunity to
make new friends, renew old acquaintances
and work in various endeavors with many,
many super people. Regardless of what the
future holds, there arc countless people wc'vc
crossed paths with since moving to Tulia
whom Beth and I will never forget.
Next Monday morning. I begin Texas De-
partment of Criminal Justice training. Suc-
cessful completion of that training would
lead to an assignment as a correctional officer
"somewhere in the Childress area." That area
covers Amarillo, Childress and other loca-
tions. For the present, I would commute to
work, or stay there during on-duty days if the
location is loo distant to drive.
Will I ever re-enter the newspaper busi-
ness? Thai's a question I have asked myself
frequently. If the right opportunity came
along, the answer possibly would be yes. I've
had a half dozen or so offers within the past
year, and three of them were extremely
tempting, but we need to slay close to our
parents for the present.
Then again. I need some lime away from
meetings, long hours and more meetings; I
have not fully regained all of my pre-illness/
surgery stamina. The new job might be ap-
pealing. It will allow more lime for grandsons
and maybe even planting a rose bush or two.
And I plan to install a computer in out; home
■wfcdta work far tome newapaper friends on
occasion, things such as feature stories. An
offer has already been received to "cover
.......'s (area school) sports for us." If my
schedule works out, I just might do that
Again, best of luck to The Herald's own-
ership and staff. And, aTcxas-sizc THANK
YOU to so many wonderful people for shar-
ing your lives through both good limes and
not so good limes these part almost six years.
I'll miss you!
While giving The Herald last week's
crime report, Abdon Rodriguez pointed
out that officers are "handling the situa-
tions, hopefully before they become ma-
jor. Officers are doing a real good job in
responding and taking care of situations
before rruyor problems develop.”
