Botanists Sponsor Open House
"Oh, look at the size of that flower."
"What's that plant called?"
"Isn't that a beautiful red?"
These were typical comments Sunday as more than 500 people
attended an open house at the Botanical Gardens.
More than 100 applied botany students guided their friends,
families and University faculty members through their specially de-
signed laboratory.
Jovial Atmosphere
u These students have worked here all semester in an usual jovial
atmosphere on their individual three by three foot garden plots, nur-
turing special projects, babying cuttings and grafts into new, mature
' plantings and curing any illnesses

Guests were also shown through
t h e University greenhouses -
with rooms containing tropical,
desert and temperate trees and
plants, as well as special research
studies by graduate -students.
Hanging Baskets
Stealing the show were the hun-
dred hanging baskets in which
grow flowering African violets or
striking red and orange begonias
or varied pink and purple fushias,
as we1l as more unusual speci-
mens. Each student trys to make
his individual basket the best of
its kind, and; they, with such
special care, mpake splendid show-
In the classroom, a number of
displays were viewed by the
guests. A special attraction of the
show was a Spring Garden, de-
signed as somebody's back yard.
Complete with flagstone walk
and terrace, the garden was
flanked with marigolds, zinnias,
petunias, and other annuals and

Grafts on woody cuttings, a dis-
play depicting plant evolution
from algae to angiosperms, trees
and shrubs useful in home land-
scaping and garden books and
seed catalogues were all part of
the show.
Most of the guests left the gar-
dens muttering that they just
must get one of those --- plants
for their home or garden, and
the students felt well satisfied
that the semester's work and the
open house had been an outstand-
ing success.-
