Points Count In Flower Show Mrs. Ann Bruntz, Osawatomie, spoke to Garfield Gardeners last evening on the topic, "What a Flower Show Judge Looks For." She was introduced by Mrs. Arnold Hinderliter, vice president, who was in charge in the absence of the president, Mrs. Jerome Minnick. Mrs. Bruntz pointed out that there are no set rules and regulations and that ideas and trends in flower arranging change with time as do people's preferances in other things. "Although points are a relative thing, a judge is conscious of them in making her decisions," the judge pointed out. "She must have some basis on which to base her decisions." Mrs. Bruntz told that counting is on a basis of 100 points. In flower arrangements the points are as follows: color combination, 25; relation of material to container, 10; proportion and balance, 25; distinction and originality, '20; suitability of com bination of materials, 10; and condition of material, 10. A horticultural specimen should be grown to perfection, according to the speaker. For this reason the condition of the specimen counts 25 points, color, 25; form, 15; size according to variety, 15; ' length of stem, 10; and substance, 10. Specimens are usually displayed in a clear bottle and the foliage must be attached to the stem. Mrs. Bruntz illustrated her points by showing faults of three arrangements and correcting them. She mentioned that often it is possible to lend distinction to an arrangement by combining unusual bases with the container. She gave as rules of proportion that the plant material in a tall container should be \% to two times the height of the container, and the width of material in '. a low container in the same proportions. The speaker announced that a flower show May 11, in Osawatomie municipal auditorium is open to visitors. The hostesses, Mrs. Mildred McKee and Mrs. E. G. Stucker, served refreshments at the close of the meeting in Miss McKee's home. Mrs. L. D. Forsythe, Wichita, was a guest. A plant exchange was held at • the close.

I have never done anything I am ashamed of and I don't plan to. I've never written to you for advice and I'm sure I never will. Why don't you write about old ladies and pets and lay off teenage problems so I can get some rest? - MISS STEUBENVILLE Dear Miss Steubenville: Sorry I've been causing you trouble, but I deal with the problems I get. Pointing out "horrible examples" to teenagers serves no useful purpose. If kids are old enough to read they will see what they want to see in their newspaper and draw their own conclusions. I hope your dad will stop shoving my column in your face. He may mean well, but continuous larping would get on anyone's nerves. If he doesn't happen to see this one, be sure to point it out to him. Dear Ann Landers: I refer to your reply to "Delta" who wrote about her cold, undemonstrative daughter. The mother said she tried to be affectionate but the ittle girl pushed her away. You ;old her the child had probably jeen rejected and was. returning the cold treatment. Have you ever heard of "autistic" children? They are in a shell and do not respond to warmth or affection. These children are happiest when left alone. If you say to an autistic child (age 4) "Tell the lady your name," he will reply, "Tell the lady your name," since he does not relate himself to others in the normal sense. Parents who have cold, unaffectionate children are usually miserable and filled with guilt It helps to know that some children are born that way. So why not say so? — MRS. H.L. Dear Mrs. H.L.: There is no rule for which an exception cannot be found. Advice, regardless of how sound, cannot apply to every human and to every situation. The autistic child is an emotionally disturbed child. A lack of warmth is only one symptom of his illness. When a child speaks and behaves as if others are not present, the parents ihould recognize this as an illness and that professional help s needed. The overwhelming majority of cold, unresponsive children are not autistic, but rejected. Dear Ann Landers: For Christmas, Bobby gave me a watch and an identification bracelet. I gave him a sweater. We were gong steady at the time. Now that we have broken up ic says he wants the watch and :he I.D. bracelet back. He says le would be happy to return the sweater I gave him. I have no use for the sweater and as far as I'm concerned he can keep it. I don't know what good the watch or bracelet will be to him since my initials are engraved on both. Please tell me what to do.-KITTY CAT Dear Cat: Return the loot and et him figure cut what to do with it. If he wants to return he sweater you gave him — take t. The idea is this, Toots: He wants to unwind completely. Be a lady and don't fight it.
