'THURSDAY, MARCH 21, 10.10 IS, EM LILIES OF NEW M American .Variety Is Called Generally Superior To Japanese BEl/l'SVIUJG, .Mil., March 21 (UP) — scientists ot the government* huge iilanl research • center hare hnvc developed n new anil improved Eister lily. I-ong rows of (lie delicate white Dower so prized m faster time bloom in profusion under the llUiss_or the large greenhouses as proof of man's power ever nlnril life. 11 took more ihfin five years of patient work hy a seore of scientists, to develop the new lily from American-grown bulbs. The result thrills even the casual flower-lover wllli amnxenient and admiration, Every year florists near large cities in tliis country import about $:),000,000 worth of' lily bulb.*.' for forcing in greenhouses. Virtually all of these have come from Japan. Domestic bulbs were believed inferior to those Imported. In one of the greenhouses here Easter lilies grown from domestic bulbs have been blooming since last October. The number of fall nnd winter blooms is about double the number usually obtained from imported bulbs. Since dealers sell plants on the basis of the number of blooms, tills is an important point in favor of bulbs grown in the United States, 11 Is pointed out. Also, domestic bulbs can be kept, free from disease, which makes the plants more vigorous. American scientists have demon- ] co-operatively, strated that Hie American-grown SERVICES MARKETED bulbs tire of better quality for ON COLLE Men Over 40 Winning Fighi On Prejudices Against TheM Qirulhersville Society—Personal Men over 40 are working out their o«7i solutions. •oriel)' KOI- fii|i|ilcd Children The I'diii.srot County Society for | Crippled Children met In (lie home , of Mrs. l.eroy Whltucr at linyli ! j Friday.

That is Hie repon from Chica- Ijo's Men Over Forty club, which has passed the experimental phase In a year's operation. With a present membership or 35 to 40 the club has a record of 115 mine-' bers "graduated" into paid jobs "We've broken down, in a measure,, the insidiuoi- propaganda against hiring the man over 40" declares W. E. Rennolds, president of the Chicago group. ' " ' His club is one of 24 operating independently in 24 cities. The clubs are composed of unemployed men over 40 who have bnudcd together to "market" tlieiv services forcing, and that by proper management, can be made to bloom during the winter anil early spring when the demand is greatest. .The early blooms are available for the cut flower trade, while some of .the later-ones can be sold as potted plants for Easter. For those purposes, the scientists said, the newly developed bulb is superior to the Japanese. much In the past forcing bulbs for fall blooms has been a highly speculative business. Many greeiThouse men have given it tip. To obtain blooms for Easter it was" necessary lo buy the imported bulbs and store them for nearly a year. This ft'as costly and uncertain, A series... of experiments' was begun, here in-1035 lo determine the .best-time tor digging,, propec- stor- .•> age rne'tlibds and cultural practices in general.-At. the same time breeding Investigations were started. The work here indicates that it is practical commercially to grow bulbs In Louisiana, dig them early in July, store them for five weeks' and then plant them at intervals during the fall and winter to produce blooms at any time desired,, So far most of the lilies grown in the government- greenhouses are the" Creole typo, which has been grown In Louisiana for munv years. This variety and others from Bermuda, Oregon and Japan have been crossed to .produce" the best possible combination. This combination is beSno.ln- ON COLLECTIVE 1!.\SIS • The clubs are not • closely federated, nor Is there any central national clearinghouse.
