Discoloring of Plants
Is Not Due to Frost
University of Oregon, Eugene, Oct.
21. Jack Frost has been discredited
Contrary to prevalent belief, frost
has no connection whatever with bril
liant colors of autumn foliage, ac
cording to Professor A. R. Swectster,
head of the botany department. The
striking reds and yellows of the hill
sides of Western Oregon are achieved
by a complicated process within the
plant itself, Sweetster said. Upon
the approach of winter, nature stops
the flow of sap and green coloring
matter into the leaf, and by a process
not yet understood, even by botanists,
the leaf takes on the red and yellow
hues, he explained.
Now is the time to
