"'A unique gallery of original works at reasonable prices." the rolling post office, an L.C. baggage car, has been restored and a three minute tape (available upon request) gives historical data about the car. Hours are Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday I0 a.m. to 5 p.m. Beginning in May through October it will be opened for the World Fair's duration daily Tuesday through Saturday I0 am. to 5 p.m. In 1983 the Mail-Car artists held a design competition in hopes of minting a coin that could be sold to raise money for upkeep and restoration. Terrie Frisbee's "Blue Heron" from her lino- cut entitled "Natures Nobility - The Great Blue Heron" was chosen as the design for the coin. Frisbee studied at Ruskin School of Art. Oxford, England until founding the Oxford Printmaking Co-operative. She returned to the U.S. in 1978 to pursue full time professional print- making. She is a member of many state and local art organizations and has received recognition and awards for her works since 1979. Terrie is very dedicated to her work and the oppor- tunity to share her gift. Her community commitments range from teaching art programs and demonstrations to work- ing on theater sets or judging art shows. The "Blue Heron" on the coin repre- sents her love for the bird and its environment. She and husband have been building their own sailboat for the past four years and it's far enough along that sailing on Lake Maurepas and its rivers brings inspiration to the crew and passengers alike; a possible motivation for the creation of "The Great Blue Heron." On the reverse side of the coin is a design taken from the Mail-Car's 1982 poster done by Helen Entrikin: the strawberries are representative of the City of Ponchatoula and the RPO stands for Railroad Post Office. The logo on the front: "Year of the World's Fair," is commemorative for the 1984 event to be hosted by New Orleans, La. The first coin made to help the City of Ponchatoula acquire the old Engine No. 3 was immediately received by local residents and guests so quickly that it sold out and a second minting was done to be sold out also. The success of sales helped make it possible and Engine No. 3 sits across the street from the Mail-Car Gallery and Country Market along the tracks. This year's coin is a limited edition done in bronze, available for $3.50 each in the Mail-Car Gallery and proceeds will be used to help upkeep and continue restoration of Railroad Post Office and Engine No. 3. The solid bronze medallion carries the theme of "Louisiana Waters" in Terrie Frisbie's design and is now on sale.

By VIOLET COLLIER Times Garden Editor Hi Gardeners. Well another two great days have come and gone. The Straw- berry Festival - a great successful time. The weather was just beautiful, The crowds were wonderful. Very little trouble I talked to so many people and they all love our Ole Town Ponchatoula. Everyone worked hard. The homes, the yards--all were lovely. So many asked where to go see the older homes, I was right there to tell them, just ride on any of our streets and you will see beautiful old homes and well kept yards with lots of old fashioned roses. vines, trees and new and wild flowers too. April is a wonderful month! The trees are coming alive, spring flowers are everywhere. Now is a good time to fertilize your lawns here in the South. Use a fertilizer with nitrogen in it. About one pound to a 1,000 feet. Read the label on the fertilizer and give you the amount of nitro the package. Those of .you who had patience to wait and see if shrubs and trees were frozen now find that many of them putting on new growth. As as they put their new leaves you can use sharp clipper: take off the limbs that were during the severe winter. pays off many times. h's sti]l not too late to re of your shrubs you lost mean a little more work to them watered when it gets but it pays off.

CHIROPRACTOR To Get Down, Cut Down! ! once heard of a very busy old doctor who would never waste time in making up special men- us for patients who wanted advice on reducing. He would just give them a list of exercises and cover the matter of diet by saying: To get down, cut down." And that's sound advice. To get rid of those inches or pounds of excess fat, you don't always need an elaborate diet. The important thing is to control an elaborate diet. The important thing is to control your food intake by eliminaling from your diet high calorie foods while continuing to eat low-calorie, highly nutritious foods. So the very first step toward senensible eating is to analyze your eating habits and to discover you are consuming more calories than you need. An average housewife whose ideal weight for her particular build and height is 120 pounds, needs for example, from 1800 to 2000 calories a day. When you stop to consider the number calories in typical foods .- scrambled egg is 106 calories, a slice of bread (wheat) is 65, a sweet potatoe, 200 -- you can see your day's activity. And if you eat more calories than your body can bum up through your , the excess calories will be stored around the body in the form of fat. in analyzing your eating habits, ask yourself these questions: Do I skip breakfast, then snack throughout the moming? Do ! always choose a pastry for deseart and never enjoy fresh fruit? Do I buy nutritious, low-calorie foods, then increase my caloric intake by the way I cook or serve the food?And so on. As an example of the last point, take the potato. It is healtldugy rich in VRan C and other nutrienls. Yet it's often the Fast thing a weight watcher cuts from the diet-and perhaps with rea- son. Cooking the potato in oils and fat, then eating it with lots of butter, gravy or sour cream, that's what thickens the waistline. One of my favorite ways to prepare a potato for dinner or a snack is this: Wash the potatoe well and leave the skin on. Slice spreading  skes on foil paper. Now take a teaspoon of soya oil and season to your taste with garlic, onion powder, salt and pepper. Mix weU and use brush to spread lightly on the potato slices. Put in broiler and brown the slices on one side, then the other, rg bet you enjoy potatoes pre- pared this healthful way as much as you ever enjoyed potato chips or French fries. If you are honest with yourself you can easily determine what you must do to insprove your diet. I believe the worst thing a woman can do to her good health is to folbw a starvation diet. You are wise to always get a balance of quality foods in moderation. Keep in mind that those excess calories which you do not bum up through phy:ai activity are stored in the form of fat mainly at the mid-section. So it foDows--to trim and lighten the waist and abdomen, cut back on your caloric intake. Let your increased physical activity (exer- cise) bum up that stored fat while firming the abdom2nal muscles. And once your waist is as small and firm as you want it to be, keep up your sensible eag hahn. Consume no more cab aries than required for a person of your build and physical active.
