i By Florence 3Iatthe
Elta McMunn,. whose name' has
become familiar to readers of The
Statesman by s her contributions
covering J a namber of years, has
announced that; she has renounc
ed the. -world ot literature, said
her, prayers, and established her
self as a seed grower.
Her family and friends refuse
to be alarmed, f ,They recall that
she hss renounced literature In
times, gone by :when she took
"flyer" in pure : bred poultry;
when she embarked in the turkey
business with two "Toms" that
deceived her is to their, sex;
when she raised Chester White
pigs that were (too "darling" to
sell after they were raised.
But whether i"letters" or "let
tuce" snail be the ruling passion
for the remainder of her life, cer
tain it is that one of her hobbies
would secure her, front page no
tice if the real magnitude, of it
were known. VI
. . . t
She- ,is ambitious to wild-flower
the world, and what 4s more she
has been working quietly, stead
ily, systematically for twenty
years to accomplish . : it, and so
carefully tried dut have, been her
plants and her plans, that a mere
pressing of the button" at this
time will result in a blooming
world next spring..;
To save the Wild flower by Ju
dicious picking, has -never seemed
sur Icjent assurance of their per
petuation, .and so Miss McMunn
long ago conceived the idea of
saving seed from wild flowers,
growing them- in .quantities, and
returning them J to their ' native
haunts in proper season. She
found that plants lifted from the
woodland more, often perished
than grew, so 'she formed the hab
it of tielng a bit of bright string
upon the flower when In blossom,
and visiting it later for the col
lection of seed, j In this way she
secured red honeysuckle, wild
bleeding heart, f fox glove, wild
aster, ond . may others, ; being
careful not to gather or disperse
such weed jests las iarkspur, field
Kink, California poppy, or mar
kuerites. for while beautiful In

tive to train crops. ,AS she har-

To "the "wild" seeds Miss Mc
Munn has added such of the

rare or cultivation. These include
Sweet Rocket, Silver Dollar,
Sweet William. Anchusa. and
Her collection of pressed wild
flowers numbers 78 varieties, 'but
she has called them Qulnaby wild
flowers, knowing that Oregon at
large could probably show sever

She is busily engaged now in
filling one thousand seed envel
opes which are to be sent to va
rious auto camps with the re
quest that tourists scatter them
as they stop for luncheon by the
roadsides, or pitch their tenta for
the night. ,

in 1909, he started Into business

grows many that are not common

His attention to petunias was
specially attracted by several es

among a batch raised from im

variability Ot petunias, he decided
to make an attempt to fix and
further improve - these forms.
Events proved it possible. Others
working on similar lines have also
achieved success in the way of
fixation of colors by hand polli

so far has accomplished greater

Thirteen Years at the Head
of Portland's Schools,
Now the Pansy King!
By ELLA McMUNN I
For thirteen years at the head
ot the city schools in Portland Is
no mean honor, and one must re
spect the industry that had! the
power to lure him from it. In the
full power of his strength and
mental faculties. It was E. J
Steele who gave up the position
and it was a pansy garden that
did the luring. Trained for a pro
fession In which he was eminently
successful, he felt, he says, tha
he should be producing something
from the ground, a sort of back
to nature urge that took form In
a pansy garden. Just what its
dimensions were. Mr. Steele has
himself probably forgotten, since
it is thirty-fire years since that
bed of simple flowers became the
nucleus for the largest pansy farm
jn tno -world. It is eight acres in
( extent and is located in the sub-
rbs of Portland, at 44th and
