Betty Hewitt [far right] also works in the beauty salon. [Democrat photo] Gene Ellyson still has the traditional striped pole outside his barber shop, but with recent remodeling that is about all that reminds one of old-style barber shop With the help of his wife, Edith and 12 year-old C.J., Ellyson has partitioned his shop into a barber shop and a beauty salon with a carpeted waiting room. "We've needed to re-model for a few years," says Ellyson, "As the world changes we've got to change with it." For the past three years he has been taking hair styling courses. "The courses have given me a whole new outlook on barbering. Each seminar motivates me," he adds.

Jaynes thinks there is a good chance, but to know for sure will take at least two more years of study and experimenting, he told the National Geographic Society.

It was a fungus that has all hut wiped out the American chesnut, a fungus that hitchhiked into the United States in 1904 with a few imported Japanese chesnut trees. Tree Strangler The hmgus first turned up at the New York City Zoological Garden that summer, killing American chesnuts by girdling the trees' bark and strangling the tiny tubes that conduct water and nutrients from the ground up into the growing trees. In no time the fungus was sweeping through groves of lO0-foot chesnut like e forest fire'Nothing could halt the blight, which by 1950 had killed all 9,000,000 acres of American chesnuts.
