iverything from Orchids to Lemons
ake Root in Soil at botanical Gardens
SO LET IT SNOW:
Hot Record Society Prepared for Winter
By PETE HOTTON
Orchids, lemon trees, pineapple
plants, "rubber" trees, and cacti
by the dozens-we've got 'em all.
This unique distinction, belongs
to the University's botanical Gar-
dens, where more than 18,000 dif-
ferent plants are grown. A mile
out Packard Road, the Gardens
grow practically every type of
plant from all over the world-
On Soviet Life
Dr. Joshua Kunitz, authority on
Russianalife and culture, will give
three talks at the University to-
morrow and Tuesday.
The first of these will be an in-
formal lecture in Russian at 4:15
p.m. tomorrow in the West Lee-
ture Rm., Rackham Bldg. At 7:30
p.m. tomorrow Dr. Kunitz will be
the guest of Russky Kruzhok at
the International Center.
He will speak on "Russian Lit-
erature, a Mirror of Russian Life"
at 4:15 p.m. Tuesday in Kellogg
Auditorium, under the auspices
of the .Russian department.
Dr. Kunitz's background in-
cludes numerous trips to the U.S.
S.R. and a series of books on Rus-
sian life and letters. The latest of
these are Russia: The Giant That
Oame Last and a critical anthology
of Russian literature.
everything from rare orchids to
the tomato plant.
AND THEY'RE all classified
into their own category, with the
date and origin of collection and
the name of the collector, accord-
ing to Walter Kleinschmidt, super-
visor of the Gardens.
The University has a staff
of collectors scattered all over
the world who spend their time
hunting for plants-new ones
and old ones.
All plants for botany classes and
labs are grown at the Gardens.
Each class sends in a list eight
or nine months ahead of time and
the botanists have to grow the
plants to exact size, shape, and
other specifications for experi-
THE GARDENS grow two of the
largest collections of cacti and
rubber plants in the country. In-
cluded in the cacti group are
plants from every conceivable des-
ert in the world. Some cacti even
come from hot, wet jungles. The
irksome dandelion is considered as
a rubber plant, so the gardens
grow that, too.
All plants coming into the
United States must go through
the laboratories at Washington,
D.C., where they are inspected
for any possible tropical or other
kinds of diseases.
"When we receive a plant from
a different climate, we must du-
plicate all its environments,"
Kleinschmidt commented. "Every
room in the greenhouse has a dif-
ferent temperature and humidity
and even the soil for each plant
is different. Walking from room
to room is like taking a quick trip
around the world. Last year we
burned close to 400 tons of coal
to keep our plants warm."

KLEINSCHMIDT'S own "prod-
igy" is an orchid plant from Brit-;
ish Honduras. In 1936, when he'
received the plant, all he had was
a bushel basket full of dried up
But he salvaged one tiny stem
one inch long and an eighth of
an inch thick and planted it
with faint hopes. After six I
months of careful nursing the
tiny morsel took root and now,
12 years later, it bears 100
"Most of the orchids we grow
here are hybrid and bigger and
more beautiful than wild ones.
These domestic ones are the kind
you might buy for your girl at
anywhere from two to 10 bucks
each," Kleinschmidt said.
Unfortunately the orchids at the
Gardens are not for sale for dat-
ing purposes-only in the interest

The prospect of long, cold winter
nights holds no fears for members'
of the University Hot Record So-
Every Sunday night nearly 40
members of the Society congre-
gate in the Grand Rapids Room'
of the League and lose themselves
in ecstatic contemplation of their
THE GROUP was formed in the
fall of 1946 when Palmer Wright,
a graduate student at the Univer-'
sity, advertised in The Daily that
he had jazz records for sale. The
response was tremendous, and be-
fore he realized it he found him-
self president of the Hot Record
The diversity of tastes in the
group is almost as large as the
membership. One member col-
lects Ellingtonia; another has a
complete collection of "Fats"
Still others go in for Coleman
Hawkins, Dizzy Gillespie, Louis
Armstrong and Benny Goodman.
Interest in one, however, does not
preclude interest in the others,
and the members listen attentive-
ly to each other's programs.
THE ACTIVITIES of the club
are numerous. Most of the meet-
ings are devoted to record con-
certs, at which members discuss
various phases of the jazz world,
with illustrations from their own
At tonight's meeting, for ex-
ample, several members will
trace the development of the
jazz vocal styles from the Twen-
ties to the present day.
Once a month the club sponsors'
a jam session, in which local mu-
sicians, and others from as far as
Lansing and Bay City, participate.j
ENCOURAGED by the success
of the Stan Kenton concert which
it sponsored last year, the Hot
Record Society has plans for a
series of concerts by nationally
known jazz artists this year.
Under discussion at present
are concerts by Louis Arm-
strong, and Art Hodes, with Sid-
ney Bechet and Muggsy Span-
ier. Duke Ellington has been
scheduled tentatively for this
The group has also taken the
lead in attempting to form a na-
tional Hot Record Society.
Tonight's meeting will be held
in the League at 8 p.m. The public
