(ff\— An Easter Monday wedding is planned by author-historian August Derleth, 43, and his 17-year-old fihancee, Miss Sandra Evelyn Winters. The announcement was made by Miss -Winters', parents, Mr. and .Mrs. Millard Winters, at Freeport, 111. At his clared: "We hope to be married Easter Monday—that's April 6 — at St. Aloyshis Catholic Church in Sauk • City. . Berkel, who takes over Tuesday as pastor, will officiate. I'll be 44 on Feb. 24 and Sandy will be 18 on March 1." Derleth said they will honeymoon in California for "six to eight weeks" during which time he will lecture at a California college. The prominent Wisconsin man of letters became engaged to Miss Winters in December, 1951, when she was 16 and a senior at Sauk City High School.

S. Fifth Air Force said. t Allied fighter-bombers roared over North Korea and pounded w frontline /positions, a rail line and supply concentrations. The Air Force said that during ' the past wee.k j|s, pilots shot down two MIGs, probably, destroyed one lost, zones and geographic sections of the United States and in southern Canada. The trial grounds, 18 for flowers and 22 for vegetables, are maintained by resident judges who watch and note the entries for two and often three seasons. These reports are submitted to the • All- America Selections committee and those deemed worthy of recoghi* tion are then introduced to the garden world. Gardeners may depend on any new selection as recommended, for it has been thoroughly tested. Royal Carpet alyssum and Comanche petunia win f the only awards and recommendations of All-America Selections for 1953. With a silver and bronze award, respectively, these are the outstanding new flbwers of the year. Along with dozens of other promising annuals from around-the WOrld they have been thoroughly tested and compared with closest similar kinds during-the past two years, of trials. Royal Carpet alyssum is the first new variety in the alyssum family since Violet Gem was introduced a fe^w years ago. Royal Carpet is the color of the richest, deepest Violet Gem and flattened out to only two inches' tall by '10 or 12 inches across. , Covered almost completely with a sheet of violet or royal purple bloom, it seems to have no foliage; It makes a richer and more attractive blanket of refreshing color. Carpet of Snow is the white- flowered counterpart. Use this alyssum in sunny positions for ground cover, lowest edging, in rock and walls. It certainly creates attention and admiration, and it is about the easiest seed to grow. Ccmanche petunia is absolutely true to type and color, the reddest and richest petunia so far created. Since petunias are the most widely and popular and satisfactory planted flowers . of them all, Comanche has added significance and value. It is always in bloom, from early spring until . killing frosts, and may be carried over the winter in the 'lower South. Deeper and richer scarlet red than Fire Chief, the only other red Petunia, it also has somewhat larger flowers and many more of them. Comanche plants are larger, bushier and .stronger. They stand erect over a long blooming season, making a striking bedding display. Cut-flowers are long lasting and very useful for arrangements. Comanche is a first generation hybrid, true, uniform and with extra hybrid vigor for beds, borders, lining walks and drives, pots, win- and porch boxes. Fast to it is the outstanding red and rich- colored petunia to date. Order this new Royal Carpet alyssum and Comanche petunia seed conveniently from any reliable up- to-date seedsman or seed dealer. All have original seed stocks this first year of distribution. However, there is never enough seed of a new All-America Selection. So get your seed promptly and start now fir a better garden.
