WO — A thorn tree said by tradition to date back to the time of Christ and to bloom when royalty is near has put forth four blossoms — with Princess Elizabeth of Big- laud in town. The tree Is Washington Cathedral's Glastonbury thorn. It Is a cutting,from a tree In Glastonbury, England. That tree, accord- Ing to legend, grew*from the staff of Joseph of Anmalhca, by tradl- ti»n the man who took Christ down from his cross, Joseph is said to have gone to the British Isles, anrt, where Glastonbury now stands, to have thrust his staff into the ground to claim the Isles for Christ. The staff, the- story goes, took root, and grew into the Glastonbiiry Thorn. In the Middle Ages It became custom to pfuck a bloom from the revevcd tree when royalty came near, and present the flower in a silver. box. Canon Charles Martin, headmaster of St. Alban's School at Washington Cathedral, an Episcopal Church, told the Washington Post the cathedral thorn had three times bloomed when royalty visited Washington. Other times, it is said, it blooms only at Christmas. (Continued from Page 1) Milton Dallas, $50: Lone Oak, Shel by McCock, $50; Hickmin. Mrs. R L. Adklsson, $40; Tomato.
