The official flower for Salem will be
selected at the meeting this evening of
the Salem Floral society, to be held in
the auditorium of the Commercial club.
To assist in the selection, everyone is
invited, whether they are members of
the society or not. The Oregon grape is
the state flower and now that Salem
will soon be known as a city of flowers,
it has been suggested that now is the
time to select the official flower. Pro
fessor Peck, of the extension depart
ment of the University of Oregon, will
deliver nn address and there will be a
general discussion as to what should be
done.this spring in the way of the plant
ing of flowers in the parkings.
There will be more onions grown in
the back yards in Salem this spring than
ever before, according to those who are
selling seeds. At least, so far the
greatest call has been for onion -seeds
with potatoes running a close second
The seed men are anticipating a rush
of business as soon as the garden season
opens up as the chances are back yards
and parkings will bo utilized to the
greatest extent. The opinion seems to
be that when an average sized potato
is retailing for 10 cents, it is about
time to lay in a winter supply of pota
toes by way of a garden tract. Last
year wns tho greatest year ever known
in the way of garden seed and the
chances are the record will be broken
again this year.
