Oiitdoor GRAND OLD TREES ARE COMPLIMENTED SPECIAL DINNER at the VANDOME Restaurant SUNDAY May 23rd Chicken and Strawberries will be included in the dishes served Three surgeons from southern Ohio are in the city looking about for information concerning the condi tion of shubbery, trees especially and they find that thre is not a great field here for their line. "The ti-ees here seem to be in a healthy condi tion", said R. A. Campbell, one of the urgeons, in discussing trees generally Ho stated that in larger cities the trees were in more danger of .being injured, that their growth and protec tion was not given proper attention which caused many beauiful trees to die. ; 1 "Freserve your trees'", said Mr. Campbell, "'at any cost, although the cost is nominal, and you will appre ciate it in the future, since a beautiful tree is becoming more scarce each year, and it requires considerable time to grow them. I would advise all to look after the shrubbery and es pecially trees and to plant a tree vvhereever the opportunity permits, for there will come a time when this tree will be appreciated a great deal more than at present." The surgeon stated that in some localities, the tree had been practical ly eliminated, and that there were some "grand old trees" in Richmond and vicinity and that they were land marks that should be allowed to grow undisturbed.
