He has 5,000 of them and they cover an acre of ground at the Julia Copley farm east of town. The plants are winter hardy, Mr. Rode-* wald states, and were developed by Doctor Krouse, professor at the University of Chicago, and Doctor Longly of the University of Minnesota, who spent 12 years on the job. They will stand temperatures of 23 or 24 degrees while ordinary plants are killed at 30 to 32 or sometimes higher. Mr. Rodewald, who has 25 varieties, kinds and colors in -his field, is shown potting the last of an order for 25 to be taken to a Mason City florist. He explains that the secret of: keeping the plants from year to year is _covering the roots with about 6 inches of soil or sand'in the fall to prevent ground heaving in the spring. The heaving 'breaks the rootlets and kills the plant, he says. 14 years or older are eligible to membership whether or not they have been Scouts before. Attend the Amelia Kisner estate .

Gilbert said Thursday his department will soon start an industrial accident prevention campaign. Gilbert said he believed a "sharp reduction" in both accidents and fatalities could be brought about by a state-wide safety educational campaign in industrial plants. He said most of the larger industrial plants in the state have general safety programs. But, Gilbert said, there is a "wide opportunity" for more safety promotion work in the smaller plants employing from 10 to 100 workers. Gilbert said 26,892 industrial accidents in which a worker was incapacited for more than 2 days were reported for the 1946-47 fiscal year and 14,346 accidents in which a worker was ,incapacited for more than 7 days were re-ported during the 1947-48 fiscal year. He said 94 workmen were killed in the 1946-47 fiscal year and 137 in the 1947-48 fiscal year.
