At that time he was attempting to find crafts suited to the material and equipment available to the boys. Thus developed out of his summer experiences a style of wood carving which requires only a penknife, a smell piece of wood and some patience to create a wooden figure characterized by simplicity of form and beauty of the grain of the wood. Four of his wood carvings won the Ralph H. Beaton Memorial Prize for first place in the sculpture division of the 1945 exhibit at the Columbus Gallery of Fine Arts.

CARD OF THANKS We wish to thank all the friends who assisted in any way during our recent bereavement and also all those who sent flowers and messages of condolence and sympathy. Mrs. S. F. Geiger & Family The E. C. Stultz Farmily Your Poinsettia Can Be Preserved Poinsettias, brilliant with their large, red bloom, long have been cherished as Christmas gifts and Yuletide decorations. However, as soon as the holiday celebration is over colorful plants begin to fade and die, and many per sons would appreciate information on how to save the plants and grow them again for the next season. The Ohio Agricultural Experiment Station has given some suggestions for keeping the plant through the year in a manner which should pro duce blooms. Due to the drastic change of con ditions from greenhouse to the home, the plant dies quickly. Dry atmos phere, changing temperatures be tween daytime and night and expos use to draughts cause the leaves to yellow and fall. As soon as the petals drop, the plant should be placed in a dark warm basement and kept dry. Some water should be added about once every three weeks so that the stem remains plump. In May the plant should be repot ted in fresh soil, and the stem cut down to within 12 inches of the ground. By keeping the soil moist and spraying the stem with water, several times a day, the new growth will start. This seems very simple, but some times in spite of all care, leaves grow and flowers fail to develop. This happens because in the average home, enough electric light to used in the evenings to prevent flower bud formation. The poinsettia is a short-day plant. Light at night, no matter how low, stops the buds from developing. If the plant is moved every night to a room where no light is used, it should flower.
