.| Native Holly
t Of all the traditional, always
..l ‘he-same symbols of Christmas,
you might think that holly is most
; But a plant breeder at Rutgers
: University’s College of Agricul
_| lure says ‘“no,”’—there’s room for
improvement in holly. He’s nof
3| out to change the symbolism of
holly, whatever that may be, but
only the plant itself.
Dr. Elwin R. Orton is talking
about American holly—ilex opaca
—that grows best in New Jersey
and the East, not English holly.
Most of the English holly avail
able at Christmas comes from the
Pacific Northwest.
But there are tremendous vari
ations within the American spe
cies in color, glossiness of leaves,
bearing habits of berries and
other characteristics. And it lives
through cold winters that can kill
the less hardy English holly.
v Dr. Orton’s holly-breeding proj
.| ect began with selection of male
and female plants with character
istics that might improve the
species, then cross-pollination ac
cording to time-tested methods.
Harvesting the berries was easy
enough. But each berry contains
four seeds with extremely hard
coats. Normally, in wild state, a
holly seed takes as long as three
years to germinate.
Still Takes Time
Successful experiments com
pressed this time to 14 months,
yet it’s still two and a quarter
years from time of planting the
seed until the new plant is 15
inches high and big enough for
results to be seen. Complicating
this situation is the fact that some
plants don’t begin to show desir
able characteristics put their
best foot forward—until after four
or five years.
New sorts will be worth waiting
for, but meanwhile, Dr. Orton
suggests, enjoy whatever kind of
holly you can get, American or
English. Even a sprig in the plum
pudding helps preserve the tra

Preferences in gift wrappings
I vary as greatly as tastes in food |
! anj' clothing across the nation. |
| A survey conducted by a |
| wrapping firm showed that the |
i normally conservative New |
! England states stick to tradi- |
tional reds and greens in their |
choice of Christmas gift wrap
pings. The same is true of the |
i Southeast and the midwest. |
In the Southwest and on the |
West Coast, however, gift wrap- |
pers were more daring last year. |
Reds and greens still led in |
sales, yet highly popular were |
blue foil papers and gift wrap- |
pers in pink and cerise. |
Metallic foil papers were also |
. popular in the Southwest and |
| West Coast, particularly Texas |
i and California. |

Decorations |
I A look through the merchan
| dise mart suggests Christmas this
year will be traditional with lots
I of green, gold and bright berry
| red. Holly wreaths and small dec
, orative trees are shiny green
' trimmed with velvet bows, gar
; lands of della robbia fruits, bright
I red cherries, strawberries and
I “just-for-fun” polka dot mush
| rooms,
I Tinsel string, fluffy foil fringe
| and gold paper garlands offer
. trimming possibilities artfully
. festive and fascinating. Small
| mirrors on an invisible nylon
thread, or multi-faceted glittering
| ornaments reflect a thousand danc
| ing lights in a holiday room. |
I Oversize ornaments, much too !
' big for the tree hang in clusters |
| and carry Christmas into every |
, corner of the house. Some re- |
| semble frosty decorated icicles;
| others use velvet, jewels and glit- |
, ter for fancy festive baubles. |
i No cranberry strings or pop |
corn strings in the stores but |
there’s more than a hint this will |
|be an old-fashioned Christmas. ;

‘ Love, the poets say, is like the |
wild rose briar and friendship |
like the holly tree.
The similarity of love and wild
rose briar may need proving but
| history records the use of holly
| as a symbol of goodwill and ;
| friendship even before the Chris- |
| tian era. |
| Holly wreaths, sprays and twigs |
| were used, too, in various rites |
| throughout much of Europe in
those early days. And large quan- |
| tities of the shiny green foliage '
| and red berries were brought in- |
| doors to brighten the scene dur
| ing drab winter days. But even I
| before the Romans set foot on |
| English shores, the druids were |
| using holly in their own pagan |
| rites. I
| Due to this pagan association, |
| early Christian leaders opposed |
i use of holly during the Christmas
| season. In fact, Christians were
. forbidden to decorate their homes
| with Christmas greenery during |
| the mid-December Saturnalian I
| revelries of the Roman Empire. |
j Eventually, however, holly dec- |
’ orations became so well estab. |
lished and so popular they were
I given Christmas acceptance.
