Attendance thus far stands at 57,000. which means that the over-sill number of visitors seems certain to surpass last year's 125,000. Amid a wealth of big exhib its, one of the most eye-catch ing at the flower show is a miniature rose garden, which delights all comers. Created by the Conard-Pyle Co., the garden surrounds a 1 playhouse constructed along the lines of a Southern colonial mansion, complete with tradi tional pillars, live oak trees and real Spanish moss. Roses Small as Violets Bordering the cleverly con trived walkways and garden are rows of roses no bigger than violets. Beside the mansion is a beautiful grove of rose trees, no taller than 10 inches and exact replicas of the 10-foot variety of rose tree which has come into vogue in recent years. Nearly every little girl who sees the miniature rose display clamors to take it home—and many parents would like to do the same. The buds are the pro ducts of Star Roses, grown by the Conard-Pyle Co. in West Grove, Pa. The weather outside seemed to put most of Washington ui the proper mood for serious consideration of spring—and sure enough, spring was in full flower at the Armory. Several unexpected features Court Will Hear O'Sullivan Case RICHMOND, Va., Mar. » (AP). —National Labor Rela tion Board charges that a labor union ignored its order to cease picketing and an economic boycott of the O’Sullivan Rub ber Corp. plant at Winchester comes before the 4th Circuit I Court of Appeals here today. The court convenes to hear this and arguments in 20 other cases. It wil be a two-week ses-; sion. The O'Sullivan dispute dates back to 1956, when workers walked out following a break down in contract negotiations. Some returned and the firm hired replacements for those who did not come back. The following year the work ers turned down a bid from the United Rubber, Cork, Lino leum and Plastic Workers of America (AFL-CIO) to repre-j sent them, according to a brief filed with the case. NLRB now contends the 'union no longer represents the O’Sullivan workers at Win chester. but is continuing to picket the plant and urging > consumers throughout the Na- j tion to boycott its products. ...-„■ i Virginia Urged To Push Fight On Integration GLOUCESTER, Va., Mar. 9 fAP).—Some 400 persons at tending a segregationist meet ing here last night heard speakers urge a continued re sistance to Integration—even if it means the end of the public school system in Vir ginia. Collins Denny, jr„ legal counsel for the Defenders of State Sovereignty and Indi vidual Liberties, cautioned Vir ginians against losing faith in their State leaders and urged a continuance of the anti-in tegration fight along J,he mas- 1 sive resistance lines. He termed talk of an as signment plan as "tommyrot." The only State legislator at the meeting was State Senator W.

Episcopal Rector Bans Flower Show Visits An Episcopal rector, who yesterday fobade his parishioners to attend the Flower Bhow because he regards the Oarden of Gethsemane exhibit as “blasphemous and sacrilegious." pointed to the Episcopalian catechism today aa the basis for his order. The Rev. James Murchison Duncan of Ascension and St. Agnes Church, Twelfth street and Massachusetts avenue N.W.. quoted a portion of the cate chism which says “I submit myself to all my governors, teachers, spiritual pastors and masters.” Mr. Duncan said that he had not been to the Armory to see the exhibit, and “I have no intention of going to look at lt.” “It is different from a Christ mas creche,” he said, “and I feel that a new low hat been reached by creating animated figures of Christ and His dis ciples while He was in HU agony in the garden of our bleflbed Lord. Next, they will be making animated figures of the scene at the Crocs, with stereophonic round of HU last words." “In Wretched Taste” Concerning a comment by Bhow Manager E. L. Harloff that “no exploitation was in tended and I have seen people coming away from the exhibit with tears in their eyes," Mr. Duncan said; “The advertisements for the flower show indicate that the display of the Garden of Oeth semane U the main reason for attendance. I understand there are beautiful flowers around it —but it should be realised that ChrUt did not go into the garden to appreciate Jonquils. It U in wretched taste to exploit such a scene. People do not attend flower shows for the purpose of being moved to tears.” In hU sermon yesterday, Mr. Duncan told hU parishioners: “As a ChrUtUn priest, I raise my voice—perhaps a lone voice ! —in protest. In accordance . =l= r t with the obedience that my j parishioners owe to me as their spiritual pastor and master. I i I forbid you to attend the flower . show at the Armory." > Figures Are Animated l He said he realised that the c exhibit was intended to be a ! , copy of a famous painting, "but . I there U a great deal of differ-!, . ence between a painting and ' figures accompanied, 1 r ; by narration and music.” I j The advertisements and news r releases from the flower show i iiread: I I “The National Capital Flower j and Garden Bhow proudly pre-' 1 sents a 40-foot, three dimen-;J sional reproduction of ... a r famous painting which brings i t to life through animation and 1 . the life-sized figures that give ( it even greater significance • This exhibit was five years in t the making Specially high lighted and accompanied by 1 dramatic narration with musi- 1 i cal background, periodic lllu- I > initiations of lt during the show 1 ■ are climaxed by six choir boys < ■ singing ‘The Palms.' ” 1 1 !

The Commission on Govern mental Efficiency and Economy urged today that about $2 nra lion of Maryland’s capital Im provements program be put on a pay-as-you-go basis. The commission noted In a press release that Gov. Tawes has proposed to create nearly sl4 million of new debt. This would finance the capital im provements program during the 1960 fiscal year and would be In addition to his $447,869,000 ! operating budget. The statement continued: “The State Planning Commis sion urged that new debt can be created only to finance pur chase of land and-or improve ments, construction of bulld lings and for projects costing | approximately 6150.000 or more each. “It is recommended that ap proximately $2 million of the l $113,922,000 program be fi nanced by current revenues on ;a pay-as-you-go basis.” The planning commission had noted in approving the capital Improvements program that about $1.4 million was for re novating, maintenance or re placement purposes. Both the Legislative Council and the commission have been urging a partial pay-%s-you-go policy for years, the statement said.
