Natural Beauties of High
ways Not Sufficiently
Salem Garden clnb is' doing its
best to farther the efforts of the
fctite organization and all those
interested in cleaning up the
y highways of the state so that they
1 1 will conform to the hataTal beau
ty of the country which they di
ride. Effort to beautify all of the
state highways in Oregon will be
centralized on Saturday, May 10.
which has been. proclaimed
' state highway clean-up day-" by
GoTernor A. W. Norblad, who has
called on all eivie organizations
of the state to aid in the work.
The state federation of Garden
clubs Inaugurated the movement,
with Mrs. Jessie M. Honeyraan,
Eugene, as chairman.
In preparation for the tourist
travel this summer, boy scouts,
members of chambers of com
merce and service clubs, school
children, and numerous others will
tarn out on May 10 to tidy up
Commanity meetings are being
called all over the state by the
leaders to asiga various jobs and
territory. Each mile of highway
will have two teams workiag oa
!t, one on either side, while state
highway trucks will gather up the
rsbbish and carry It away.
The order of the day. as an
nounced by Mrs. Hoaeyman, is
as follows: The workers assemble
at mile posts designated by the
leaders at 8:30 In the morning.
Sections f the highway will then
be allotted to the group, with
two leaders and two groups for
each Bile. After the leader hare
given Instructions to the workers,
and have distributed tools to
those who are not already equip
ped, work will start at 9 o'clock.
Work Is to be confined to the
roadside between the travel?!
area of the highway and the
fence-line bordering the legal
right of way. No work is to be
done en private property except
by permission of the owner or
occupant, and then only as di
rected by the section leader.
All workers should bring a
rake for pulling dead grass and
other debris left by winter into
small piles. Foar-tlned pitch forks
will be of use, also, according to
the leaders, while a few pruning
hooks of various types may be of
service. Shovels and spadea will
be useful all along the highway.

really worthwhile, growers must
begin perfecting plants, for the
time is but a month away; June 7
is the opening date.
There is every reason why we
should have the outstanding kIiow
of the year in this spring flower
show, which as is planned is to
be the largest and most inclusive
one beldso tar ia Salem's garden
history. But U can only be accom
plished if everybody will help.
What will be blooming June 7?
The answer would be almost a
catalogue fit our choicest peren
nials. A few of the later iris
should atfU be in bloom. Peonies
will probably be at their best.
Roses we will have abundantly.
There will be a few lilies parti
cularly the Mt. Hood lily will be
available. Just who is to nave
the choicest one of these flowers
on exhibition? I will venture to
say that it will come from a small
garden rather than from the
more pretentious ones.
There is the delphinium which
Is running a good race to be
present. Help it along. And then
there is the columbine. Who is to
carry away the laurels for this
plant? It should be a close race
for so many have become en
thused with them because of
their great Improvement of recent
The same improvement is true
in the oriental poppy. A good
variety once planted will take care
of itself for many years. There
are, however, so many poppies
available that they could monop
olize the whole show. Some do
not enjoy being on display away
from the garden or field, but
most of them keep well as a cat
flower. If the end of the stem Is
placed in boiling water then kept
in the dark for a while good re
salts will be obtained. This same
treatment will be found to be a
groat help in 'the keeping of
other cat flowers.
Other flowers which shonld be
In abundance at thig time are
foxglove or digitalis; eanterberry
bells and other campanlae; sca
felosa and red hot pokers or torch
lilies, together with a few glad
ioli which will certainly be pres
ent. Then there are a host of small
interesting and worthwhile blos
soms each as pansies, the finest
specimen ts of which are many
times to bo found in seme small
backyard garden, or country gar
den. I hope there will be a set of
prizes to he given to pansies
Already my space Is used and
the catalogue is scarcely begun. I
hope each one who reads this will
help to elaborate it by showing
your best speciments at our first
Willamette valley flower show.
Shape Declared One of Chief
Considerations in Selec
tion of Evergreen
Almost all of the evergrees are
valued for their distinct shape
and symmetry. In selecting and
grouping evergreens It is well to
consider their shape if a pleas
ing result is to be secured.
Evergreens can be divided ac
cording to shape into six general
groups. A classification such as
this makes it much easier to se
lect the right place. It must be
remembered that the members in
each group are alike only in
Bhape or outline. Each has its
own characteristics and may be a
dwarf grower or tall grower ac
cording to its class.
Group 1. This broadly pyra
midal group of the Christmas tree
type embraces quite a few of the
commo nevergrees including some
of the first, hemlocks, spruces and
pines. As a rule they make large
trees at maturity and make most
perfect speciments when growing
without itnerference. This class is
good for lawn groups, shelter
planting, avennes or specimens.
Group 2. The evergreens in
-this group are usually medium
height growers suitable for back
grounds and foundation plantings.,
Fapaw tree. Summer

street from 12th street,
John BIcXary, 885 North
Summer, Japanese maple.
They are uselul to give height
at corners and accent at each fide
of a doorway, gateway or gar
den entrance. Various varieties ot
Arborlvataes, Junipers, Taxus and
Retlnosporas are included in this
Group 3. These are the upright,
columnar varieties which intro
duce an exclamatory note in the
landscape, wherever an accent
plant is needed or where formal
effects are striven for, these
plants may be fittingly use. The
junipers and Arborvitaes both of
fer such narrow types.
Group 4. In the family ot ever
greens there are many fine dwarf
varieties, which grow more or less
globular. These are very useful
for specimen planting or for foun
dation planting, elhter alone or
in combination with taller grow
ing varieties planted in back. The
Mugho pine and Glove Arborvitae
belong to this group.
Group 5. The evergreens in
this group constitute an interme
diate stage between creeping Juni
per and upright growers. All are
dwarf and consequently make de
sirable plants for foundation plant
ing. Two of the most commonly
known of this group are Pfitzer's
juniper and Savin Juniper.
Group 6. The creeping variety
of juniper which constitute this
group are at home on slopes where
they can spread out at will or
wherever a low carpet of ever
greegroen foliage is desirable.
