An annual grant of $10, 000 from the Garnegle Institute, award ed to the horticulturist, has been with drawn and Burbank declares the action is a relief, maintaining that careg and responsibilities accompanied the yearly gift. ' The action of the Institute's officials was based on the allegation that the plant merger was being exploited for commercial purposes. Another reason assigned was that Burbank was not the originator of the spineless edible cactus. "I am exploited, whether I am willing or not," declared Burbank. "Moreover, t do not claim to have originated "the spineless cactus, but I do claim to be the first man to make It commercially useful. But for the advice of friends I would -have dissolved my connection with the institute last year. Besides cares, the grant brought a full crop of envy and Jealousy. Personally I have no doslre for wealth or fame. I will say, though, that It was mutually agreed with the Institute that I should have the privllege of supplementing their In adequate grant by the sale of my pro ductions, a before the contribution was offered." .
