Never leave a child alone in a room with a poisonous product. * Never refer to medicine or vitamins as candy.

Always keep a bottle of ipecac syrup on hand (one per child) to induce vomiting, but use it only on the advice of a poison control center, emergency medical service personnel or physician. Vomiting can often aggravate the poisoning and cause even greater long- term danmge..Mso keep a bottle of activated charcoal in your first aid kit. * Call for help. If you suspect a child has swallowed something, check his or her mouth.

The show debuted with a March exhibition at Ardmore's Charles B. Goddard Center for the Visual and Performing Arts. From the Capitol the exhibit will travel to the Omniplex, Oklahoma City, in May and will make its final appearance in October at Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa. Following the Tulsa exhibition, the student photographs will become a part of the larger Quartz Mountain Art Collection.

According to Jessica Buzzard, Public Relations Director for OAI, the Oklahoma Fall Arts Institute is a continuing arts education program for educators and amateur and community artists. The program is held at Quartz Mountain Arts and Conference Center in southwest Oklahoma.

Maintenance Garden NAPS--WhiIe gardening defi- nitely has its rewards, it requires lots of time and effort. To help simplify matters, consider these low-maintenance tips. Select plantings hardy to your region and use perennials and shrubs that need relatively little care. Use annuals to intro- duce new color each season. Flowering vines add color, fra- grance and texture while providing privacy and shade. Generally all they need is the help of VELCRO *" brand Plant Ties and water to reach the top 0fan arbor or trellis. Give new shrubs room to grow. Fill in empty spaces around them with potted, shade-tolerant plants and flowers that can be moved as needed. Foliage shrubs with leaves in shades other than green provide months of color and usually need little upkeep. Some, like b0ugain- villeas and viburnums with color- ful blossoms and berries can even be trained to grow into trees. Starting when plants are young, secure main stems with VELCRO Tree Ties, guiding them in the desired directions. * Keep plenty of adjustable P'lant Ties on hand for staking everything from tomatoes to sunflowers.
