Cedar, shows how she will plant her petunia plant Sunday in the Ransom Memorial Hospital Garden. Her mother is a member of the Hospital Auxiliary, sponsoring organization. To observe National Hospital )ay and the birthday of Ransom Memorial Hospital, the hospital auxiliary is sponsoring a petunia arden around the base of the wspital's flag pole. This garden will be created 'rom petunia plants donated by anyone in the county wishing to contribute — individual adults, children, clubs, organizations, school classes, church and Sunday School groups. "All we want is one petunia— any color—from each contribu- ;or," says an auxiliary spokesman. "Bring your petunia to the lospital lawn Sunday, May 12, Between 1 and 4 p.m., for plant- ig." The Franklin County Medical Auxiliary members, who are also Hospital Auxiliary members, will register contributors and show them where to plant the petunia. The garden is not a new idea but an extension of a practice originated years ago. The Auxiliary also is introducing the idea of a Ransom Memorial Hospital landscaping committee. It would be composed of county residents who have knowledge of plants, shrubs and trees and who would be willing to work with Stephen A. Lott, ad ministrator, to develop a long range plan for the hospita grounds. Anyone interested in serving on this committee shoulc contact the auxiliary president Mrs. Robert Grabham, CH 2-3303 Rotarians a Hear Report On Railroads "Railroading Yesterday and Today" was discussed by Harry J. Briscoe, Emporia, superintendent of the eastern division of Santa Fe, at the meeting of the Ottawa Rotary Club Wednesday. He traced the growth of the Santa Fe from its founding by Cyrus K. Holliday of Topeka in 1859 until the present. He related history of the early days. Gone are the old water tanks and coal chutes, he said, made obsolete by the diesel, which he proclaimed "the life saver" of railroading. The traffic density on the eastern division, which goes through Ottawa, is the heaviest on the Santa Fe system, he said. The first railroad into Ottawa, the old L. L. & G. from Lawrence, later became a part of Santa Fe. It was built in 1868. Guests at the club meeting included Lowell Hodgson, Briscoe's secretary; Akil Asfoor, Jordan, an OU student; Rev. Herman Van Arsdale, Dell Rapids, S.D., Len Perron and Charles Stapleton, both of Sioux Falls, S. D., and Helen Harrel the club's represea tative in the Miss Ottawa contest.

There are two big differences, however. While Bunyan was purely mythical, U.S. officials arc inclined to believe Keynaldo exists.
