Spring wild Flower Are at the height of their Beauty now and the annual War to exterminate them la in full swing. No this does not re Ter to the Farmer who fights per Ais tent weeds on his land. It is True that the cultivation of the land and the spread of cities have greatly diminished our National Supply of wild Flowers. Forest fires have taken their toll of the Flowers too. But the real War on the wild Flowers against which protests Are raised is conducted mostly by City Folk who love nature but who unwisely woo her by Caveman tactics. Out to Fields and Woods the Holiday makers go and in a spirit of of the loveliest of the wild Flowers Are being loved almost out of existence. The idea that seems to setae peo pie when they ars confronted by a Patch of Spring Flowers is that this Beauty must is gathered up and taken Home. They imagine Tho bluebells anemones or Hepatica in a Graceful bowl making Spring in the House for several Days so they hasten to remove the fragile flow ors from their natural netting la an attempt to capture and preserve the elusive spirit of Spring. This desire is perfectly natural. The trouble is that so Many people fail to show discrimination la so leering the wild Flower. Borne Spring Flowers ars so dolt Cate that they Wilt a few minute after they Are plucked and can never be revived. Such Flowers Are Only wasted by picking and As some of them Are becoming extremely rare to pick and throw them aside is nothing less than vandalism. Other plants less perishable perhaps and therefore especially attractive for Homo decoration Are so ram through wholesale picking or lastly thers is a group of plants which ars not harmed by careful picking that is they should be picked sparingly to that plenty Are left to go to seed. And the roots should be left undisturbed. Some of these Are so loosely rooted that a Hasty tub brings up not Only the Blossom and its Stem but the roots and other branches of the Plant As Well. Trailing Arbutus is one of the rare wild Flowers that should always is Cut carefully since the trailing stems which Are needed to Send up new Flowers Are easily torn from the Earth. Flowering Trees destroyed. Dogwood Redbud and other flowering Trees and Bushes far More sturdy than the plants in the grass Blit some of them Are equally in danger of extermination. Dogwood is mid to he More ruthlessly destroyed than any other Flower in the Oast. Tho Beautiful White Flowers lose their freshness in too Short a time to be practical for decoration yet Dogwood is picked wholesale and automobiles leaded with faded branches can is seen every Sun tearing Tho Lurer Day returning from the Woods. California tor children Are forbidden to bring specimens or sprays for decoration into the schoolroom. A of the flowering Trees and Bushes suffer because persons who want to pick branches generally pull at them with their hands or saw them off with a Dull knit. The Iid Flower preservation society of America says a do not break or tear off Woody flowering branches. Cut them close to the base so the wound May heal Over a and prevent fungus disease from most people who like to see and pick Flowers Are aware of these facts. They know that reckless picking spoils the plants for the next year and they know that Many of the most charming wild Flowers Are perishable. All along the roads of a Bright Spring sunday discarded Bunches of faded Flowers lie in the dust. Yet the picking Marathon goes on every look fibrin tiny Section of the country the group of vanishing Flowers would be different. The Flora of the states varies greatly. Even Woods a few Miles apart Bloom with different Spring Flowers. The National Floral wealth can be imagined from the statement that in a Region of moderate size in this country that is in a Circle of about a 15-mile radius there will be found about 1,000 different specimens of attractive wild Plant life. Pessimists Are pointing out that there Are certainly fewer wild Flowers than when they were Young and that a few generations hence trailing Arbutus Columbine and ladies Slipper will be As of. Bolte As the passenger Pigeon and j the great Auk. More hopeful preservationists however believe that a turning Point is at hand and that the american people Are coming to the Rescue of the wild Flowers because they love them.

The wild Flower preservation society la always trying to educate the Public to love the Flowers with gentleness and Flower Day proposed. Now a wild Flower Day is suggested by a California nature Lover. Albert e. Stillman who believes that much Good would be done by focusing interest in the subject for one Day each year. He proposes that May 20 to designated and observed in the Public schools of every state by a talk pageant or program featuring wild Flower Protection. May ,20 is suggested because it la Tho Day of the annual meeting of the John Burroughs memorial association and because the great naturalist was a Strong advocate of wild Flower Protection.
