nn SOCIETY, FEDERATION OF CLUBS' NEWS PART THREE. MISS GLADYS ROLFE McDOXALD'S engagement to Guy Norman Loofbourrow of Westmoreland, Kas., lias been announced. The wedding will take place June 9 in St. Matthew's Episcopal Church. THE GIRL ABOUT TOWN rPRING GARDENS. Jat Many an Englishman who has been warbling, "Oh' KjQj to be in England, now that April's there," might easily change his tune to "How pleasant to be in America, now that May is here." In Indianapolis there is a generous supply of spring glorification, and the Mothers' Association of Park School will sponsor a garden tour next Saturday and Sunday, offering Indianapolis persons the opportunity of seeing some of the city's most delightful gardens. At the end of West Forty-second street, just beyond the city limits, three lovely homes stand next to each other, all with delightful gardens and walks. They belong to Mr. and Mrs. Theodore B. Griffith, Mr. and Mrs. Perry O'Neal and Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Holliday. In the American Georgian garden of the Griffith home, which is surrounded with red brick pavements, lovely tulips of all shades are In bloom. A sight which would charm any one is the ancient white oak which overlooks the garden on one side and on the other, from Its station on a high bluff, guards a glorious view of the canal and river. This is probably one of the finest views of the river and canal, which run side by side, which can be seen from any territory of this surrounding countryside. The O'Neal and Holliday homes stand with a spacious lawn between them. This site is called Shooters' Hill and also faces a splendid view of the river and canal. The O'Neal gardens are abundant with spring flowers and the iris garden, which Mrs. O'Neal has named the "Iris Bower," is delightfully informal and its coloring beyond description. A rose garden, which stands next to the home and of course won't be in bloom until June, offers a vision of beauty to anyxone with the slightest imagination. Around the corner from the rose garden is a newly laid out walled garden about three feet below the lawn surface. In it are blossoming a most enchanting abundance of all different colored pansies, tulips, hyacinths and lilacs,.. which are just beginning to come into their own. Another flower garden which will boast many peonies around Decoration day gives rather an amphitheater effect to the wood which lies beyond. . ' ' The most rustic of the three grounds, which gives one the impression of taking a hike in the wood, is the Holliday estate, where there are many winding paths leading up and down hill among all sorts of divine wild flowers, including violets, dogwood, redbud and myrtle. These little paths appear to run on forever and lead to a private path along the canal if one cares to wander that far. In one spot there is a miniature lake where there is a small flat-bot-itomed boat, where Mrs. Holliday's grandchildren often can be found. After ambling through this hilly territory we found a vegetable garden and picking garden and nearby a bird sanctuary where it is fun to sit for hours and watch the happy hunting ground of the birds who flock there, assured that ,they will find food and safe nesting places. Not far away is a teahouse, which is equipped with a grill and where the family often invites guests for steak roasts. And the always-popular lily-of-the-valley garden near the home will be in bloom by the time of the tours. 4 )0LD SPRING ROAD HOMES. Mr. and Mrs. J. I. Holcomb and Mr. and Mrs. Charles B. Bommers have beautiful estates off the Cold Spring road which will offer a superb climax for those who are planning to go on the tour. "Woodvale, the name of the Holcomb grounds, is filled with all types of quaint Japanese gardens where even a Japanese pagoda may be found, several stone idols and Japanese arches. In front of the home, facing a large valley which overlooks Kessler boulevard, is a rock garden built on a series of plateaus, each with a tiny pool where floodlights play in the evening on the water. A swimming pool also is nearer the house. The Sommers home also has a Japanese appearance In its architecture and a series of four pools along different elevations built among rock gardens which, are abundantly ladened with rock plants and tulip beds culminate into a formal garden facing the recreation pavilion, tennis court and swimming pool. The tennis courts are made of en-tout-cas clay which was Imported from England. Pausing for a moment inside the pavilion, we admired the beautiful cut glass and marble decorations in the pool's dressing rooms, which are perfect in every detail. Probably the most glorious view of the pavilion is from the driveway across from a large artificial lake (which is just below a rock wall which surrounds three sides of the pool, but does not hide the pavilion) where black and white swans glide slowly by. Deeper into the interior of the grounds is a tiny winding stream, where there are occasional stone bridges, practically hidden by the graceful willows, and at one end is a miniature golf course. There is a large tulip garden where tulips of every color are in bloom now. ' NGLISH TOUCH. A garden window-in-the-wall looks through into the delightful English garden at the home of Dr. and Mrs, H. A. Clowes, where at this time the predominating color scheme is pink and light blue, due to the blossoming of luscious pink tulips and perky forget-me-nots. A red brick wall which surrounds the garden adds to the English effect. Boxwoods and a hedge of clipped jew add to the cozineBg of their garden, which would be harder to find in a vaster Turn To Page HE VOL. 32. NO. 334. 36, Column 4. 8 !
