GAKDKMXfi BOOKS are too few pub- lications dealing wilh gar- dening on Ihe Prairies, and so it was with pleasure thai I re- ceived Ihe. 1930 edition of The Prairie Garden, which is pub- lished annually by the Winni- peg Horticultural Society, first article in the book The ..._._____ 'Sel- dom Grown Ornamentals Hardy in Calgary" by Al Golden is worlh the price of the book by itself.

ADDRESS Enhance Garden With This Trellis This small home, wilh its I unique arrangement and spac- ious rooms, is a fine exar.iple I of what can be accomplished by proper planning. The separate I enlry hall lea'Js into a large liv- ing room which includes book- cases built on either side of toe fireplace. There are lots of ex- tra closets arxl a pleasant and roomy kitchen in the front cor- ner of the house with entry to the basement or side door. With many windows facing the rear, and a lovely lounging terrace, this home will provide great en- joyment. The interesting roof treatment, combined wilh an exterior of ledgerock and verti- cal beards, will make this house the showplace of the neighbor- hood. perimcnting with growing trees and shrubs in the Chinook Belt for a great many years ajid has a wealth of knowledge and experience, and he suggests quite a group of trees and shrubs for this area, which in- cludes mosl of Southein Al- berta as well as Calgary itself. Other articles that appealed lo me were "Fragrance in the Garden" by Dr. R. Leslie; "Color out of Season" by Dr. Donald G. Hoag; "Ancient Praiiic Gardens" by Dr. W. R. Leslie, which gives an account of native plants grown and used by the Indians; several articles on pest control are very up-to-date and timely; 2 articles on Geraniums (Pelar- goniums) and an 'ad' by a Ca- nadian Geranium grower list- ing many variclies for which Mrs. Young and I have sought a Canadian soui'ce for years; and an article on Japanese style flower arrangements. Last, but not least, on page 100 there is a list and some in- form on 5 new publications which will be available short- ly, including Mrs. Young's and my book BETTER WAYS TO SUCCESSFUL in Western Canada which will be available any day now. This is only a very brief list- ing of the contents of The Prairie Garden which can be obtained in Lethbridgc, or by 4W8 Roselca Place, Columbus i Ohio 43214. The price is 10 cents. This lisls all roses avail- aVle in Canada and the foiled Slates with a very condensed description of each. For more detailed descriptions, see nur- sery catalogues. Any question or problem on gardening or special topic you may wish to have dclat with will be answered by sending a stamped, self-addressed envel ope to Mrs. J. Eons, 3221, Mor- ley Trail, Calgary 44, Alberta. Uuildoy, March 26, 1970 THE UIHBRIDGE HEKAID 5 The Great Toilet Shortage SENRl HILLS, Japan (ren- ters) The experts miscal- culaled, and the great toilet shortage has hit Expo '70. Officials at Japan's world exposition, which opened here March 15, have reported numerous complaints from irate toilel goers forced to wail in long lines for the privilege. Throughout Uie site 813 males and a similar number of females can used the facili- ties al any one time. This, explained officials, fol- lowed a scientific study which indicated men use tci- lels every hours and women every four hours. Even if people vis- ited the Expo site in one day there should in theory have been no problem. So why the toilet stor- age "Maybe it's because of the current cold ven- tured one official. But a Toyto iron and sleet company may have come up with a solution to the short- age? It has just released details of a r-ew portable toilet for women consisting of a fun- nel and a rubber bag. The only drawback would seem lo be walking arourid the Expo sile cluiching your bag with everyone know- ing exactly what it was for.

They use the fronds [o thalch roofs; homes wilh Ihe waxy blossoms; con- vert the nutshell lo charcoal; make oil and soap from the meat; Ihe soft palm heart de- ligh'.s gourrncls and Ihe wood makes fine paneling.

However, il is broken by oases from which have been recorded 300 species of flowering plants. writing The Prairie Garden, 92 Queenston St., Winnipeg 9, and enclosing Flower arranging is be- coming more popular all the time, and more and more women and men are taking it up as a hobby. It is a very satisfying one and I wish I had more time for it. One of the lop Flower Arrangement Compclilions wilh entries from all parts of the has been put on for quite a number of years by the Samari- tan Club of Calgary. This year ia the Diamond Anniversary of Ihe Club and they are holding Iheir show a I the Palliser Hotel in Calgary on Thursday, April 23rd. If you should be in Cal- gary at that time be sure lo see the show, nut more im- portant, why not try your hand at some of the classes. There are classes for all ages, from under 9 years and up, and all degrees of profici- ency from novice to profession- al. There are 13 arrangement classes plus horticullural classes for flats of bedding rat plants and also house plants, African violels and hanging plants. Tne class for flats is divided into two sections; (a) all plants to be in bloom and (b) planls not in bloom and in- lended for planting out in the garden at the end of May. This class should appeal to those who grow good plants for their own use, many of which are superior to anything which is offered for sale. For further in- formation write to Airs. B. W.
